“Nostalgia Escape” Key Trend in 2022

Dallas, TX – March 30, 2022 – Continuously evaluating future and current design trends as part of her role at Daltile, the brand’s lead product designer Laura Grill has termed a key trend for 2022 as “Nostalgia Escape.” Nostalgia Escape is featured in the recently released Daltile Trend Report 2022.

“Nostalgia Escape is about celebrating optimism and ultimately child-like joy through meaningful objects and spaces,” said Laura Grilli, director of product design for Daltile. “Nostalgia Escape evokes past times and memories to help create a safe place within the challenges of the current. Solid memories and symbols can function as guides that allow us to navigate challenges and yet feel inspired, creative and hopeful.” 

“In a world filled with challenges, the past can feel like a safer place, worthy of escaping into,” added Grilli. “Although we create a foundation based on reminiscing, individuals are now focused on moving forward and looking to make the best of life. Nostalgia Escape is about building upon past positive emotions and embracing new hopes.”
