We don’t know about you, but we’ve been looking for a fresh start in 2022. And this year, what better way to start fresh than to be on trend! We’ve searched high and low and narrowed down our favourite colour, nursery, interior and gift trends for 2022.
Go in the right colour direction
You may have heard Pantone recently announced their Colour of the Year 2022, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri, ‘a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone blends the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red.’ You also might be thinking this doesn’t mean anything, but these colours influence us all more than we think. The Pantone Matching System is the definitive colour identification reference, used by industries including fashion, graphics and printing. Very Peri is a shade of blue/purple that has become incredibly popular in clothes, cinema and art and we’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of it.
A more toned-down version of Very Peri, but still in the same family, is the beautiful Lavender shade. WGSN has predicted this colour to be all the rage still in 2022, after being very popular in 2021, especially when researching into trends for Baby and Toddler Colour and Print trends for 2022. Soft pastels and nostalgic tones are ones to go for this year.
2022 is also predicting a light pastel, buttery shade of yellow to be on trend. Just like Lavender, this hue has worldwide appeal, as many toddler/kids brands using buttery yellow throughout their colour palettes and collections, particularly in the summer months. Pair this shade with lavender for a wonderful contrast!

The hottest nursery trends right now
Following on, mood-boosting colours are also bringing a playful approach to nursery interiors in 2022. Vibrant colour palettes are the main focus for kids rooms this year, with bold colour choices and simple designs. These choices will definitely help to uplift your child’s space and re-energise them for hopefully a great year to come! Find a balanced approach by pairing with neutral, calm furniture.
These days, less and less families are opting for the traditional blue or pink for their new baby’s new room. Latest trends are suggesting that maybe new parents should consider creating a gender-neutral nursery, using neutral creamy shades and matching their new nursery to the rest of the house. If bright colour wasn’t your thing, this is perfect for your nursery and is still right on trend.
And why not combine trends and create the perfect nursery for 2022!
Interior Goals 2022
Neutrals are definitely here to stay! 2022 predictions show that neutral colours are staying, just alongside prints and texture that represent a sense of nature. With more time spent indoors, apparently many of us a needing the soothing qualities of the outdoors. This theme includes things like beautiful wooden furniture, tactile surfaces and organic choices.
This year there is also a demand for ethical and sustainable products, using honest materials to outfit homes for conscientious consumers. There was an 86% rise in Pinterest searches on how to reduce your carbon footprint, so we’ve definitely been inspired to shop for more eco-friendly no plastic, or 100% recycled plastic options.
