Top 4 Design Trends You Can Expect to See in 2022

Here at Thirty Four Fifty West, we pride ourselves on offering a refreshingly modern residential experience where anything but the ordinary is possible.

So as we make our way into the last few months of 2021, we’re taking inventory of what’s new and novel in the design world, as well as what residents are wanting most out of their living experience. Below, check out the top trends you can expect to see in 2022 and just how we’re catering to each within our coveted live-work enclave

Multifunctional Spaces

Ask any designer and they’ll tell you that single-use rooms are a thing of the past. The desire for multifunctional spaces will continue to skyrocket into 2022 as we see residents yearning for more versatile areas to dine, work, relax, exercise — you name it. Lucky for those who live at Thirty Four Fifty West, each residence features adaptable architectural design and three stories of open-concept living environments so you can adopt the flexible, go-with-the-flow lifestyle you’ve been chasing. 

Minimalist Interiors

Throughout the pandemic, many have realized that less is truly more — particularly when you’re at home most of the day…if not all day. So as we near 2022, you can expect countless homeowners to reverse their maximalist approach and opt for more basic, minimal interiors. With industrial finishes, exposed beams and beautiful hardwood floors, the residences at Thirty Four Fifty West cater to the minimalist aesthetic that needs few bells and whistles to feel both comfortable and clean. 

Inspiration From Nature

Immersing yourself in nature to achieve a sense of inner peace has become more important than ever. Yet, it goes without saying that not everyone has a green thumb. In 2022, we can expect homeowners to find inspiration from nature in more creative ways, whether that’s bringing in rustic wood elements or even reorienting rooms to allow for more natural light. At Thirty Four Fifty West, each residence features 18-foot ceilings with oversized windows to match, fostering the most soothing, natural experience within the home, while sizable balconies are perched amid the treetops for unrivaled open-air respite. 

Neutral Colors 

In the same way that people will be finding inspiration from nature, many will opt for more basic, neutral colors to achieve a calming at-home aesthetic in 2022. Think warm shades of grey and beige, both of which you can find via natural elements like stone and wood within the residences at Thirty Four Fifty West. Plus, each live-work space features white walls and trim, offering the most serene, canvas-like environment for you to complement with any design accents you so please.

When it comes to digital content creation, one needs a functional, well-designed space to not only shoot, edit and produce, but also to rest comfortably at the day’s end. So, it should come as no surprise that Thirty Four Fifty West has attracted some of TikTok and Youtube’s most prolific creators, including none other than the Internet’s favorite Andrew Bachelor — more famously known as King Bach. Even The Hollywood Reporter has taken notice.

Actor, composer, rapper and comedian who first rose to fame on Vine where he earned 11.3 million followers and over six billion loops, Andrew is among the first Internet personalities to gain a tremendous following. Today, he boasts 23.7 million followers on TikTok and 21.2 million on Instagram, requiring him to produce comedic content at record speed. When it came to finding a space in Los Angeles to do just that, Andrew had no doubt that Thirty Four Fifty West’s flexible live-work residences would offer the perfect set-up in a prime location.

Below, follow along for the latest edition of The Live-Work Life featuring an interview with Andrew about what’s in the pipeline for his career and just why he chose Thirty Four Fifty West for his workbase and homebase in LA.

Can you share a little bit about what’s coming up for King Bach?

You can find me on-screen in National Champions which will be released in theaters on November 24. It’s an American sports drama film directed by Ric Roman Waugh that follows a quarterback who begins a strike to fight for fair compensation, equality and respect for athletes. I’ll also be doing a stand-up tour in 2022. There are tons of exciting things happening for King Bach, so keep an eye out!

How would you say TikTok and other social media platforms have influenced your business?

Social media platforms have helped grow and advance my business, without a doubt. On the acting side, I’m working on a show for Facebook Watch as part of the We the Culture Program and co-own the Zeus Network. On the business side of things, I’m expanding into new ventures like my partnership with Gloveworkx boxing gym which has two locations in Los Angeles and one in New York City.
