2022 Design Trends & The Window Treatments That Accent Them

Design Trends:  Roller Shade Window Coverings

Landscape palettes

Green is taking center stage in 2022 with Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, and designers naming various shades of green as their “top color” trend for the coming year. What’s more, consumers are having a love affair with similar colors, including soothing greens, blues, and earth tones.

Research shows that natural color schemes and organic forms like those found in nature reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase productivity and creativity, and make us happier. With the last few years spent in the middle of a pandemic, it’s no surprise these colors are becoming increasingly popular. This year, try olive or another green hue and pair it with natural wood tones, stone with prominent graining, dried grasses, flower blossoms, or leaf motifs.

Warm Neutrals

Crisp whites, steely grays, and other cool neutrals are long-time favorites that deliver a clean, contemporary look, but preferences are starting to shift in a warmer direction. In 2022, we’ll see the resurgence of warmer color palettes and a subtle shift back to creams, beiges, and nudes. Expect to see these comforting neutrals—as well as richer, earthier shades including taupe, camel, and rust—applied to walls, upholstery, and other furniture to foster a cozy, inviting atmosphere. Jute woven into stylish window shades, natural fibers and material will also be popular in homes throughout 2022. Provenance Woven Wood Roman Shades provide a great way to incorporate an organic design element into the home design. They are constructed with natural woven woods and reeds and offered in a variety of colors and textures.

Black Accents

Black accents and hardware are a popular home trend we’ll see in 2022. Specifically, Black accents such as lamps or shades really help to accentuate an area and add interesting depth. The Blindman offers a variety of black metal valances, hardware and accessories to help incorporate subtle pops of black into your window designs. Accents of black—whether accessories, hardware, window frames, or shades—work well with light wood tones and comforting palettes.

Natural Light

With the amount of time most people spend at home these days, access to large windows and high ceilings is critical. Large windows enhance views to the outside and provide abundant daylight, which is an effective stress reliever. For increased natural light, sheer shades are a great decorative yet functional option that offers privacy while still maintaining clear views of the outdoors. Offered in over 400 colors with over 50 patterns and textures to choose from, sheer shades can be a very versatile window covering option for areas in the home that benefit from natural light.
