Evergreen Fog (SW 9130) is the colour of the year from Sherwin-Williams. Sagey greens are becoming the new hype because they inspire calm and remind us of nature.
From Sherwin-Williams, “Evergreen Fog is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon colour of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It's a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic colour for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.
This year, Pantone invented a colour just to represent 2022. Very Peri was created by the team at Pantone to be the “warmest shade of blue”; periwinkle with a hint of red.
From Pantone, “As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue colour family, encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time with its violet red undertone, Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions.”

Individual Room Floorplans
From our Georgian Model Home at Georgian Sands With many people having transitioned to fully working from home, many interior design experts predict that homes will start to include more divided spaces to accommodate home offices. At Georgian Sands, we offer a variety of floorplans with flexible spaces so that homeowners can create a balance between work and life and tune out at the end of the day.
How To Get This Trend at Home: Last year’s trend of multi-functional furniture is still popular going into 2022. Consider making your spare room more multi-purpose by investing in a Murphy Bed to create a truly multi-functional space.
Warm Minimalism is a gentle combination of Boho with Minimalism’s signature cleanliness. While Classic Minimalism is cool, embodied by shades of grey, white, black, and others, Warm Minimalism uses wood textures, warm beiges, and the signature Minimalist black and white colours to create a more comforting style.
How To Bring This Style Home with You: if you’re already leaning towards Classic Minimalism but want to switch things up, start by adding earthy tones to your interior décor. Valspar’s colours of the year are a great place to start!
Homes have always been the place where cutting-edge technology is used best. From smart thermostats to appliances and beyond, Smart Home technology is becoming more and more widely adopted. One of the best parts of a new home, like the ones at Georgian Sands, is that you can implement Smart Home technology from the design stages. Talk to our team of interior design experts to discover how you can plan for smart features in your new home at Georgian Sands.
How to Start with Smart Home Technology: Smart thermostats are a great way to start experimenting with Smart Home technology. You can effortlessly monitor your home’s temperature, pre-set your heating and cooling schedule and adjust your comfort settings using your mobile device from anywhere. Smart thermostats are also easily connected to your favourite smart home assistant.
Last year we predicted that French Farmhouse/Shabby Chic would be in and we’re happy to report that this style is very popular going into 2022. Comforting, warm, and chic, 2022’s farmhouse style is made of clean lines in shades of white, brown, and black. Add a touch of Cottagecore’s hallmarks, like antique light fixtures, wall art, and vintage barnboard and you’ll be living in the cozy farmhouse of your dreams!
How to Get a Farmhouse Vibe at Home: When picking your home accessories, choose natural-inspired pieces made of natural materials. Rattan, barnboard and wrought iron, for example, continue to cycle in and out of style, so decorate using these materials and you won’t regret your investment.
Bold, vibrant, and unique — in 2022, you may start to see more structural furniture take centre stage in interior design. What do we mean by structural furniture? Imagine functional pieces with a touch of whimsy. In a way, structural furniture are art pieces in and of themselves, creating visual flare that is also useful to a space!
How To Bring the Structural Furniture Style Home: Whether you prefer to buy new, thrift, or DIY, you can bring your own fashionable furniture home by looking at your local shops. For Georgian Sands residents, this means they can check out retailers like Saving Summer Vintage operating in Wasaga Beach, Miller Island in Creemore, or any of the many shops in Downtown Collingwood to find the perfect piece for your home.
From warm minimalism to bold furniture, these are just some of the many interior design trends you’re sure to see brighten up your social media. At Georgian Sands, we look forward to handing over the keys to many new homeowners this year, ready to add their own personal touches to their homes. Whether you’re looking to change your décor completely, add a few new accessories, or create you dream home in your mind, it’s always fun to explore décor trends in a new year.
