“When I first walked into this home, I was impressed with the balance of the layout and the abundance of light,” says interior designer Kenji Chik of LaZBoy Home Furnishings & Décor. Its clean, clear lines and luxurious simplicity were ideal for working. The foyer’s 20-foot ceiling and the lightness of the glass under the stair railings and opening led him to enliven the space with color.

Inspired by the greenery and liveliness of the natural world outside the home, he chose neutrals with a palette that includes many green tones – sage, olive and emerald – with an accent of yellow. “Green has never been a popular color in general, but lately it has come back. Yellow and green tones were popular in 2021, and they can easily transition to Very Peri [a periwinkle blue with a violet-red undertone], the Pantone color of the year 2022,” he says. “It would be simple to change it up a bit by adding some purple if that’s what the winner would like to do.”

Get the trend


“Biophilia in decorating is a trend that has been going on for a while and is still going strong,” says designer Kenji Chik. According to Harvard biologist EO Wilson, biophilia is an innate affinity of human beings with the natural world – no wonder it’s so popular. Daylight, real or fake greenery, or even greenery artwork is a consistent trend that just keeps on going. Potted plants, fresh flowers, open windows and fresh air will bring it into your space.

“Since the pandemic hit, displaying a unique piece around the house has been very popular,” says Chik. “A unique piece goes a long way. Look for something industrial looking, like a dining table with a machinery base, or a dining table or coffee table. According to Chik, vintage stores are one of the best places to find unique pieces. Look for something made of wood and spend time redoing it if necessary.


It’s been around for a while, and it’s still going strong. “The trend of mixed metals in cabinetry, plumbing and fixtures will continue for at least a year,” according to Chik. “Use black as the dominant metal – it’s easy to mix with other metals.” Opt for the ratio of 70 to 30%. To make it easier, take inspiration for your mix from an existing fixture in your space that is already finished in a mix metal combination.

“Curved details are a trend this year,” says Chik. Curves, abundant in nature and naturally calming, are part of the biophilic design trend. They instantly create softness and make us feel safe and warm. “I used a round table with curved-back chairs in the basement playroom, for example,” Chik explains. From shapely sofas to curved mirrors, you can step out of the straight, clean lines of recent design and soften your space with a more organic touch.
