Greece is the word – or one of them, at least – for 2022, along with biophilic- and pet-driven home design, according to Pinterest Predicts, its annual trend report based on what more than 400 million Pinners worldwide are searching for across categories such as home, fashion, beauty and more.
It’s a not-yet-trending look at what’s to come the following year, and has an average prediction accuracy rate of 80%, it said.
Next year, people – particularly Gen Z – will be nostalgic for Ancient Greece, resulting in the desire for Corinthian home décor, Greek statue art and Aphrodite-inspired wallpaper. Some of the most searched for terms include “ancient Greek jewelry” (up 120%), “Aphrodite aesthetic wallpaper” (180%), “Ancient Greece aesthetic” (65%), “Greek statue art” (3x) and “Corinthian column” (40%).

Rounded shapes also ranked as one of the top trends for the home, as Pinterest predicts people will invest in curved sofas, curved bar designs and curved kitchen islands.

Popular search terms include “luxury laundry room ideas” (up 11x), “luxury basement ideas” (2x), “luxury gaming room” (2x), “luxury garage interior” (5x) and “luxury children’s bedroom” (2x).
