Window Treatment Inspiration for 2022 Interior Design Trends

Interior design is always evolving and changing. There are several aesthetics that began trending in 2021 that will become even more prominent in 2022. Here are several styles that we are excited to see grow in the coming year. 

Maximalist Design

Iris Apfel Fabric Collection at Drapery StreetIris Apfel Maximal Couture Fabrics and Trimmings

Where minimalism looks to pair back and eliminate excess, maximalism embraces it. Think bold, saturated colors, complementary patterns, high contrast, and over-the-top decor. If maximalist design had a motto, it would be “more is more.”

At Drapery Street, we have many bold fabrics to bring this style to life, including the new Iris Apfel collection from Fabricut. This American fashion icon celebrated her 100th birthday this past August with a fabulous fabric collection. See it for yourself in our showroom


Cottagecore window treatments

Cottagecore style embodies the need for coziness by creating a relaxing space drawn from vintage, natural styles. Think nights spent wrapped up in a blanket and sipping hot cocoa while watching the snow fall outside. 

This style draws from the romantic parts of agricultural life and embraces nostalgia for the countryside. If you found yourself making bread or taking up gardening during the pandemic, this style is likely calling your name.  

Give your home a cottage-style makeover with a warm, neutral color palette and natural elements. For the windows, consider drapes made from luxe linens or with a soft vintage-inspired floral pattern. Shades made from natural materials like woven woods, bamboo, and grasses add both warmth and texture. 

Rustic Vogue

Hunter Douglas Provenance® woven wood shades

Rustic vogue turns up the glamour on the cottagecore style. The result is a more refined look with 1970s minimalist vibes. Many of our designer clients are embracing this style by using white and black fabrics, wood elements, and warm tones. If you love the coziness of cottagecore but desire more sophistication, this is the style for you. 

Indoor/Outdoor Living 

Outdoor shades for indoor outdoor living

Now more than ever, people are looking for ways to blend indoor and outdoor living and bring more comfort and utility to their outdoor spaces. Enjoying the outdoors is a trend that’s here to stay. 

Sales of our outdoor shades have exploded as homeowners seek protection from the elements, a barrier against bugs, and privacy. When used in tandem with outdoor heaters and fireplaces, our shades can keep outdoor spaces comfortable even when there is snow on the ground.

Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades with LightLock™

Each year, we see more and more people working toward a sustainable lifestyle. Up to half of a home’s heating and cooling can be lost through its windows. Our designers work with our clients to understand how they can drastically reduce this loss for a more energy-efficient home. 

Additionally, our eco-friendly products are becoming more popular. Hunter Douglas GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ screen shade fabrics are made with yarn spun out of recovered coastal and marine plastic. Parkland® wood blinds are cut from wood harvested from responsibly managed forests. The blinds give back what they take, too. Hunter Douglas makes a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation to support rainforest preservation with each Parkland® blind purchase.
