Nature-led colors are key to the 2022 interior. While there will be an increased desire for terracotta, peach, and earthy caramels, green will reign supreme as the hottest hue for wall coverings, furniture, and decor. From deep emeralds and sage to oceanic-inspired shades on the green/blue spectrum, mixing a variety of greens to create an organic story will be very popular. Minerva Beauty has salon equipment options which feature beautiful green colorways. To add a splash of the trendy hue to your salon, check out the Emma Salon Styling Chair in Sage Green,Lusso Barber Chair in Vintage Green, Avant LE Shampoo System in Spruce, and the Filmore Styling Station with touches of green variegated throughout the distressed wood.
If you're not thrilled with the idea of painting your walls green or adding a green-hued salon chair, you can still participate in the trend by adding a few leafy palms or succulents, as house plants are continuing to thrive as décor in the upcoming year.

It is no secret nostalgia has a hold on us as bringing old styles back is nothing new, but 2022 could be the year the 1970s make a significant comeback in interiors. The old '70s style of wall-to-wall shag carpeting and obnoxious use of knick-knacks is not identically copied, but instead it’s adapted to a minimal Scandinavian style that will be particularly present in decor and furniture. Current trends like rattan materials, earthy color schemes, and retro light fixtures are past elements of the style that are continuing to emerge in modern ways as well in retro salon interior design.
Minerva Beauty has a variety of salon and spa equipment options which fit the ‘70s-inspired look. Check out the Denali Styling Chair, Sequoia Styling Chair, Kona Styling Chair, and the entire Mid-Century Modern collection for all of your retro salon furniture needs.

If you want to add a unique twist to your salon, spa, or barbershop, you can now add patterned floors back to your list of stylish flooring options as they are another replay of the hottest trends of the modern era. The look is bold, graphic, and luxurious and will help bring fresh flavor to your interior.
Whether the pattern is made from a unique layout, patterned tile, or fun, geometric-shaped materials—everything that makes a patterned floor is in. Specifically, we are seeing an increase in Chevron or Herringbone wood floor layouts, but many geometric patterned floors are making a come-back in decor trends of 2022. The resurfacing of old favorites set against contemporary lines showcases contrast at its best. Investigate our other blog post about the best flooring options for your salon to see how you can create patterned looks with those materials.

Elements that denote bright, airy, and calming are major trends this upcoming year. White-on-white with sleek lines and soft textures is the perfect blank canvas to add to any design style. Gray walls took the spotlight as a trendy wall color for a while, but the 2022 interior will be all about monochromatic white. There are plenty of shades to choose from, so whether you prefer warm or cool tones, white will make your interior look clean and calm. Plus, as a bonus, it can make low-light spaces appear larger and more welcoming.
Minerva Beauty has a great selection of white salon chairs, stations, and backwash systems. Shop our salon furniture to help bring your white-on-white look to life. If white walls aren’t your cup of tea, check out our blog post featuring 10 trendy paint colors for your salon to find another on-trend wall color that speaks to you!
As the ‘70s make a comeback, so do the ‘80s. The round shapes and curved edges which began to resurface in 2020-2021 are still going to be a key trend seen in 2022 furniture designs. Adding curves in your space, whether big or small, helps soften the feel—a desirable component in a 2022 interior as we reach for more comfort and practicality without compromising beauty. Often our spaces tend to be very boxy, so the curves of the furniture help take the edge off while creating good feng shui.
To outfit your salon or spa with more curved elements, check out some of Minerva Beauty’s finest curvy-trend following equipment below:
