The increasing use of colors and pattern is a key trend in our 2022 home design trends outlook. Whether you are looking to go bold or stay subtle with your home’s design, today’s color and pattern trends include something for everyone. Here are ten of our favorite combinations of color and pattern from our recent projects to inspire you as you plan your next remodel or home décor upgrade.

1. A wide variety of blue hues continues to be the star of the show for many remodels as either an accent or focal point in cabinetry, tile, and décor.

2. The color green has exploded in popularity across the interior remodeling and decorating industries. Paint companies like Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Valspar all chose shades of green for their 2022 colors of the year. From vibrant emerald to pale seagrass, implementing green in your remodel will bring a hint of nature into your home.

3. If the idea of a kitchen full of bold cabinetry seems daunting, a contrasting accent island or base cabinet color may be the right design direction for you. Our designers are experts when it comes to helping you choose the perfect combination of cabinetry colors and layouts for your space.

4. Gold metallic details in plumbing fixtures, hardware, and lighting add a luxurious flair to any space. If you’re looking for gold inspiration, look no further than our Glamorous Kildeer Bath remodel.

5. Warm, neutral hues of whites, beiges, and grays naturally create relaxing spaces. We love the soft contrasts in pattern and color in our recent St. Charles bath remodel!

6. Matte black finishes add a touch of drama to plumbing fixtures, hardware, and even cabinetry.

7. Playful tile layout patterns are a growing alternative to the look of traditional horizontal subway tile. Below are two examples of this trend from our recent projects in Lake Barrington and Woodstock.

8. Selecting an encaustic tile is a fun way to personalize your space. Whether it’s on a floor or wall, it can be implemented in a variety of spaces. We love the way this patterned encaustic tile looks in our West Dundee laundry room!

9.Bring natural elements indoors by implementing natural wood grain textures on cabinetry or an accent wall.

10. Textured tile creates subtle visual interest and movement to complement the surrounding space. We love how this wavy tile accent wall complements the wine display in our Barrington basement remodel.
