And just like that, a new year is upon us!
After the whirlwind of 2020 and 2021, people have been seeking comfort within their homes. Which of course, has resulted in people taking more time and care into the design and function of their homes. We can’t wait to see more of these trends take hold as 2022 continues….
1 – Oversized Fixtures
Using an oversized lighting fixture as a design focus makes a bold statement. Oversized fixtures are also a great way to make a quick upgrade to your space without spending weeks (or months) on expensive (and disruptive) renovations.
2 – Linear Lighting
Fixtures that fall into the ‘linear lighting’ category often have simplified designs that exaggerate long lines. These fixtures are perfect for clients who are looking to keep things contemporary and minimalistic in their design.
3 – Incorporate Whimsy
After the past few years, its no wonder why people are craving a little bit of fun in their homes. In lighting we are seeing this manifest as a few different trends. From incorporating more colour into design, swapping out shades for a little change of scenery and even swapping out traditional bulbs for more fun bulbs. These are all little ways to change up your lighting fixtures with little time and financial investment.
4 – Natural Textures
From rattan to wooden beads and natural textures – there has certainly been a call to bring natural textures indoors. Using natural textures in your home can create a calming and rejuvenating energy within your home.
5 – Symmetry
Symmetrical design is coming back. Symmetrical design creates a balanced look in your home. By balancing wall sconces or lamps across the fireplace, symmetrical design also helps to bring focus onto other design features in your home.
