Very Peri purple 

Every year Pantone names a colour of the year and the shade for 2022 is Very Peri – a blend of blue and purple. Some people describe the colour as a blue-tinted purple, while others refer to it as a bold blue with a violet undertone. Either way, Very Peri will be a popular new addition to homes in 2022. As it is a striking colour, you probably don’t want to add too much to the room as it could be overwhelming.  

One simple way to embrace the trend is with accent furniture or soft furnishings like cushions and throws, and decorative items such as bowls and vases to accessorise your neutral walls, furniture, sofa and armchairs. You could also use it to paint a statement wall or feature in your living room. As it is a deep colour, it works well paired with whites and muted neutral shades. This approach makes it easy to change to keep up with trends.  

Going natural 

During the pandemic, we realised the importance of being in nature and the great outdoors for our wellbeing. Biophilic designs, which seek to incorporate nature into homes, are big news in 2022. Bring plenty of plants into your living space and look at ways you can embrace natural lighting and ventilation. Opt for muted shades of green and natural materials like wood, rattan, wicker, cork and stone. At La-Z-Boy UK, we have ensured we offer a range of fabrics and colourways to help complement this trend whilst ensuring your sofa is comfortable and relaxing.  

Tradition and nostalgia 

In a world full of chaos and uncertainty, it is no surprise that people are longing for a bit of old-fashioned comfort, nostalgia and tradition. Investing in antique or antique-style furniture is one simple way of following this trend. Roll arm sofas like the ones in La-Z-Boy’s Vienna range fit in well with this look as well as wingback chairs. Add detailed ornaments and traditional accessories like lamps and patterned textiles to your living room for a traditional twist. 

Live with less 

In 2022, most people are keen to cut down on the clutter and live with less. Making the most of what you have rather than buying lots of new stuff is a key theme for the year ahead. This may see people downsizing or becoming more creative with their space. This could involve giving rooms more than one purpose like incorporating an office area into a living room. La-Z-Boy’s range of armchairs such as the Arthur armchair were designed for these kind of multifunctional living spaces where people want the freedom to relax and work in the same room of their home. 

 Luxury bathrooms 

During 2021, the bathroom was the most renovated room throughout the UK with people looking to add luxury to their homes. And creating a swish hotel-style bathroom is on the to-do lists of many homeowners in 2022. Increasing numbers of people want to turn their bathroom into a haven of relaxation rather than just a functional space. To achieve your own spa-style bathroom, you could add tactile materials like natural stone or wood. If you’re planning to completely remodel the space, you might want to swap your existing tub for a freestanding bath and look at installing a sauna shower for that added wow factor.
