Wall Art Trends for 2022
The beginning of the year is the perfect time to hit refresh on pretty much every area of your life but especially in your home. The colder, darker nights will be around a little longer, so we’re spending more time getting cosy indoors. There’s something about January that gets you motivated to start new things so if your home has been decorated for the festive season, taking it all down can feel like you’re looking at a blank canvas.
It’s likely that you’ve made a list of DIY tasks that need to be done around your home but what about the finishing touches? We’ve rounded up the latest home decor trends for 2022 and how to put your own personal spin on them.
Pantone Color of the Year 2022 - Very Peri
Very Peri is a stunning shade of blue, with a violet undertone that is designed to evoke feelings of creativity and inventiveness. It looks fabulous alongside warm colours, white and brass finishes. But how can you incorporate it into your home?
One of the easiest and most fun ways to add splashes of colour into your living space is with wall art. When we say that the possibilities are near endless, we really mean it. Abstract patterns in art are seeing a rise in popularity this year and we love this because there are no rules.
Top Tip: In design, we love to style in threes. So why not create your own set of three prints? You could place them together, or dot them throughout the room to create a motif.
Make a Statement with Your Wall
Maybe you’re feeling a little bolder and would love to experiment with colour? Perfect. Find a paint that matches Very Peri and create a statement wall. Painting a wall is great and can really uplift the room but why stop there?
One way to achieve a statement is to create a gallery wall. We love gallery walls because your creativity can really run wild. For example, mixing prints with inspiring quotes and photos is as personal as you can get - and you’ll have a feature wall like no-one else (and you won’t find it on the high street!).
Experiment with Japandi
What is Japandi? Japandi is the latest trend that’s taking the design world by storm. The perfect fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian, Japandi design focuses on minimalistic designs that are aesthetically pleasing yet highly functional. Think natural materials, neutral and clean colours and meaningful, aesthetic furnishings – like a breath of fresh air!
When you embrace Japandi style, you are ultimately aiming to create a peaceful, calm and tranquil living space that encourages simplicity. With a keen focus on sustainability, Japandi encourages clutter free minimalism through high quality craftmanship.
We’d recommend using wall art to bring the element of Japandi into your home – at least to start with anyway! Use wall art including muted tones, wood frames and pictures of happy peaceful times to embrace this beautiful style. After all, ‘although both Japanese and Scandi decor aren't new, the combination of the two is sure to be a rising trend over the next few years.’
Add Texture to Your Walls
If you want to tap even further into the latest wall art trends, give DIY wall panel moulding a go. Plus, you have a few options to choose from. With this in mind, some people choose to cover the entire wall with panels. It creates a luxurious feel and the squares on it make for perfect spacing to display beautiful wall art. An acrylic print or the stunning colour of a photo poster would bring great depth to the 2D feeling of the wall.
For an even simpler way to try the wall moulding trend, add panels along the bottom of the wall. Most DIY and hardware stores will sell the panels individually, so all you need to do is measure how much moulding you need and the look is complete. Hanging statement art above the moulding makes it visually more interesting, as it draws the eye to different areas of the wall.
If you’re feeling extra creative, you could try your hand at your own textured art piece. Keen DIY-ers are using joint compound to create textured pieces to frame and display amongst their photos and prints. It’s straightforward, albeit a little messy and is a great way to create tactile surfaces. Tie the entire look together by choosing high quality frames that complement one another.
