1. Natural materials: Wood, stone, and rattan are all set to be big in summer 2022. If you're looking to bring a bit of the outdoors inside your home, these are the perfect trends for you.

“We’re seeing a lot of people on social media using natural materials to decorate their homes for summer 2022, this is varying between smaller décor pieces and big DIY projects. Slat panelling is becoming a huge trend and we predict this will not only be a huge trend for summer 2022 but also carried through into 2023” - James Waylett, Jacobs & Dalton. 

2. Minimalist designs: Clean lines and simple shapes will be all the rage this summer. If you're after a sleek and stylish look, opt for furniture and décor with a minimalist design.

“A minimalistic style compliments the first trend of natural materials perfectly, both working in complete harmony with one another. Minimalism is another huge trend that we predict will be around for a long time to come” - adds James.

3. Pops of colour: Inject some life into your home with pops of colour. From bright rugs to colourful paintings, there are plenty of ways to add a touch of personality to your space.

“This style might seem completely opposite to the first two, but used correctly, using small pops of colour in a minimalistic space can add lots of personality! If you’re too scared to get out the paint then start off with smaller accessories that are easily changed. If you’ve been a part of the ‘grey everything’ trend for a while this might seem a little scary but there is no better time than summer to start having fun and injecting pops of colour into your home and life!” - James continues. 

4. Outdoor living: Make the most of the warmer weather by spending more time outdoors. Whether you're entertaining guests or simply relaxing, make your outdoor space an extension of your home with comfortable furniture and stylish accessories.

“Summer is the perfect time to start investing in your garden to make the most of the beautiful weather while it lasts. Carry on the trends from inside your home into your garden for a super modern and luxurious outdoor living space.” - James adds. 

5. Botanical prints: Bring a touch of nature into your home with botanical prints. From wallpaper to bedding, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your décor.

“This trend is perfect for summer and you can have a lot of fun incorporating it into your home to make it feel like a tropical paradise! We love seeing a minimalistic space take full advantage of a huge botanical print to add colour and drama” - James continues. 

6. Geometric patterns: Geometric patterns are set to be big in 2022. Whether you opt for a subtle print or something bolder, this is a great way to add interest to your living space.

“We absolutely love this trend for summer 2022, #geometricpatterns is seeing huge traction on Instagram right now with more than 53,000 posts already and rising. We predict that people are using these bold and fun patterns to fully express the joy of the first summer with no restrictions since the pandemic began!” - James adds.

7. Industrial style: If you're after a more edgy look, industrial style is a perfect choice. Exposed brick, metal fixtures, and concrete furniture are all key elements of this trend.

“This timeless trend is a great choice if you want to add instant character and luxury to your home. This style is best used in a home that can take open-plan living to the extreme and fully benefit from exposed brickwork, metal beams and touches of rustic wood throughout” - James continues.

8. Mid-century modern: This classic style is making a comeback in a big way in 2022. If you're a fan of retro design, look for furniture and décor with a mid-century modern twist.

“This trend is making a huge comeback just in time for summer 2022 and we think it will be around for a while after. This style appeals to so many people as it allows for huge variations, whether you choose to embrace a more neutral colour palette, go for more vibrant tones or an eclectic mix of both you are sure to execute this style well.” - says James.

9. Scandinavian style: Simplicity and functionality are the hallmarks of Scandinavian style. If you're after a clutter-free look, this is the trend for you.

“We usually see this style trending in the cooler months but with #scandihome reaching 863,000 posts on Instagram we think it’s here to stay for summer too! This style is easily adapted for the warmer months, swap those cosy candles for vases filled with brightly coloured fresh blooms and replace your neutral-toned cushions for pops of pastel colours, such as blush and duck egg blue. Keep clutter to a minimum and give your walls a freshen-up with a coat of white paint. Scandi style is also hugely influenced by nature and bringing the outside in, so make the most of this by embracing the outdoor living trend too.” - adds James.

10. Global influences: With more people than ever travelling the world, global influences are making their way into home décor. From Moroccan-inspired rugs to Indian-inspired textiles, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your home. 

“This is a really fun trend to play with for summer 2022, take inspiration from your Mediterranean or Tropical holiday and apply it to your home. There are endless possibilities depending on where in the world you decide to spark creativity from” - James adds.
