Trend forecasting articles typically come around New Year’s to prepare you and your home for the upcoming year. As we move into Spring, we’re seeing these new trends more and more, which is why we’re excited to help bring them to your home. From shades and sheers to blinds, shutters, and more, we have every style of window treatment to help you update your home with all the new trends. 

Bold Prints and Colors

Bright design elements are one of the newer interior design trends of 2022. After years of soft, cozy neutrals being all the rage, more and more homeowners are drawn toward unexpected colors and exciting prints. Introducing bold design by adding fun drapery is an excellent way to bring your space out of the beige zone. Featuring artistic designs from accomplished artists like Seema Krish, Marcie Bronkar, and Rebecca Atwood, the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ has precisely what your home has been looking for.

Tech Savvy

Smart homes are no longer an outlandish invention of the future. As more and more of us adopt elements of smart living, it only makes sense that automation is the next big trend in interior design. Automatic blinds combine multiple window treatment trends into a single system that works for every household. 

The main draw toward motorized shades is convenience, but they can also help make your blinds or shades more durable by eliminating fussy strings and cords. Additionally, they serve as an energy-saving option, as you can program them to raise and lower along with the sun. For anyone on the fence about making the jump to smart living, check out our last blog post on motorized shades for a breakdown of the cost and benefits.

Eco-friendly Design

Environmentalism has been at the forefront of our minds for years, and this year the concept gets a deserving spotlight in interior design. Made with materials sourced from sustainable practices and designed with features that help with energy efficiency, eco-friendly shades like our woven wood shade collections are functional for your lifestyle and the Earth. 

Try Duette® Cellular Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas for a beautiful take on environmentally-inspired design. The innovative honeycomb-shaped cells trap air, creating an insulating barrier between your home and the outside, ultimately saving energy and cutting down your heating and cooling costs. We also love the added benefit of better acoustics.
