Current Living Room Trends for 2022

Remember the formal living room? A space dedicated to cocktail parties and afternoon tea?

Thankfully, that concept is well in the past and the living room of today serves the actual name it’s been given: a place to live and just be.

Primarily, because of that, the living room décor trends for 2022 are looking to aesthetics that complement what we need: a multi-functional room that rises to meet us just where we are.

The trends right now lean toward practices that enhance the experience during the time spent there. Plush couches, beautiful scents, natural light, and organic accents.

Each of these approaches leans into the truth that true living means enjoying every second we have.

Trend #1: Marshmallow Soft Furnishings

There is a major trend towards what is being described as “marshmallow style soft furnishings.” Try to think puffy, cloud-like, and dreamy. The idea here is to sink in and create the ultimate livable space that feels as inviting as it looks.

The couch reigns in the living room. This trend leans on a high-quality design that incorporates curved sofas with oversized rounded arms and all over plush neutral and white fabrics.

Trend #2: Reflective Moments

A gorgeous mirror has long been an interior designer’s dream trick for opening up the energy of a space. Mirrors are big for 2022. This common accessory reflects natural light, creating the look of a larger space.

Get the Look:

The key to finding a striking mirror for the living room is to think of it as a piece of art. Considering the framing as a critical element, just as it is when encasing a photo or painting.

Larger profile mirrors hung opposite a window will capture more natural light, thus reflecting a greater beam and opening up the room.

Trend #3: An Emphasis on Light

Light is as important as the tangible items in any room. We always give special importance to lighting, particularly focusing in the quality of light.

By quality, the duo means aiming for soft casts and nothing too harsh or blue-based (i.e. many of the LED light bulbs out there).

Get the Look:

It is recommended that you blend lighting sources that cast at different angles.

This includes low lights, which they say create a warm and comfortable ambiance, and floor lamps.

One thing they avoid is harsh overhead ceiling lighting. The idea is to create a weave-like aesthetic of various beams.

Trend #4: Cozy Vibes

Keep it cozy, inviting, and fun, when it comes to your living room. After all, this room is for living—and that must mean our best, most fulfilled lives.

We think that playing music and lighting candles in the living room are practices than enhance the experience during the time spent there. So go slow, go easy, and take it all in.

Get the Look:

Consider your sense of touch and smell for your living room. Throw chunky blankets atop sofas, lay big natural rugs on floors (even multiples!), and add in books, scents, and photos that create a mood that is authentically you.
