Top 5 Classroom Decor Trends for 2022

Another back to school season has just wrapped up here in Australia and as always, I LOVE stickybeaking into my beautiful BFFs’ classrooms for a new school year! 

As the OG Queen of classroom decor trends, I’m often asked for advice - not only when it comes to which of my decor packs to use in 2022, but also how to style them, too! 

Using some of my new packs along with the incredible classrooms from my community this year, I wanted to help show you what’s possible with my resources - including everything from a boho classroom to a space using eucalyptus classroom decor

Here’s the top 5 trends I’ve seen from back to school 2022, and how you can recreate the look in your own space. 


Spotty Brights Classroom Decor - @learningwithmiss_campbell

BFFs, my jaw literally DROPPED when I saw this bright and beautiful classroom created by @learningwithmiss_campbell

She’s embraced a colourful palette for her Grade 2 classroom this year and used my Spotty Brights Decor Pack for a minimalistic, on-trend space that’s still plenty of fun for her little learners.

I love how she’s repurposed my Spotty Brights Binder Covers & Spines to create this organisation system for her home reader books!

After almost two years of remote learning for some teachers, it’s no surprise that colourful, serotonin-filled spaces have become one of the most popular classroom decor trends of this back to school season.

Spotty Neutral Classroom Decor - @teachingwithmissamanda

Show me a teacher who doesn’t love a neutral palette… I’ll wait!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over almost a decade of following (and sometimes setting) classroom decor trends, it’s that neutral tones will never go out of style.

Perfect for both early years and older students, a neutral classroom ticks all the right boxes when it comes to a stylish, modern space that you’ll look forward to spending time in every day!

Miss Jacobs Little Learners Spotty Neutral Affirmation Station

@teachingwithmissamanda has always been a fan of my neutral, earthy decor and so her classroom and my new Spotty Neutrals pack was honestly a match made in heaven!

Amanda is teaching first grade this year after three years of teaching prep, and I just know her students’ eyes widened in amazement that first day they walked into their beautiful neutral classroom for 2022.

Miss Jacobs Little Learners Spotty Neutral Classroom Decor

One of my favourite things about a neutral classroom? It’s super versatile not only across year levels, but seasons, too! It’s easy to make this space feel summery or wintery by adding things like indoor plants, cushions, rugs and fairy lights. 

“ I am sooo excited for this new adventure with my new 20 little sidekicks!” - @teachingwithmissamanda

Spotty Boho Classroom Decor

What do you get when you combine the super-trendy spotty theme with my OG best-selling rainbow boho classroom decor? Spotty Boho of course!

Perfect for teachers who love the boho look but want something fresh for 2022, Spotty Boho is the best of both worlds.

The muted rainbow palette is really popular with students and the spots just give it that minimalistic pop of something interesting!

I’ve had a really strong response to this new pack and wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of the classroom decor trends that sticks around for 2023 and beyond.

Boho Rainbow Classroom Decor

There’s just something about boho classroom decor that will always have a soft spot in my heart, and judging by the classroom set ups I’ve been tagged in so far this year? You all feel the exact same way!

Miss Jacobs Little Learners Boho Rainbow 2.0 Classroom DisplayWhere is this decor style shifting in 2022? The boho colour palette. Taking its cues from the bright rainbow colours of Spotty Brights, the 2022 boho classroom incorporates a wider variety of colours using my new Boho Rainbow 2.0 decor.

Eucalyptus Classroom Decor - @young.minds.bloom

If you’re one of those people who love spending time outside, then botanical-inspired or eucalyptus classroom decor will be right up your alley! @young.minds.bloom tranquil Botanical Decor set up using Miss Jacobs little Learners Botanical Classroom Decor

Tegan has been using my Botanical Decor Pack for two years now to create this gorgeous, tranquil sanctuary in her classroom. 

@young.minds.bloom has set up her teachers toolbox using miss jacobs stunning Botanical Classroom Decor labels

This year, she put a new spin on this pack to create an Aussie Animals theme and I am obsessed! Eucalyptus classroom decor can tie into a lot of your curriculum and gives a lot of opportunities for cute reading group names, too. #JustSaying

Can’t wait to see what my northern hemisphere teachers come up with a little later this year - I have a feeling they will be just as incredible, watch this space!
