New and Reinvented Interior Design Trends for 2022

The year 2022 is all about out with the old and in with the new, and interior design is along for the ride. We've all learned a lot about home life, the needs we have for our houses, and so much more over the past few years, and now it's time to put that knowledge to action.

At Baer's Furniture, we're more than ready to help people bring new interior design ideas into their homes as well as reinvent old themes for a look that's refreshed and revamped. Furniture pieces that are always luxurious and always functional are what we provide, and 2022 will be no exception.

Here are 3 new and re-invented interior design trends for 2022 according to our stylists.

1) Rustic Style Re-Invented

For a long time, farmhouse chic was very in. The style included elements such as barn doors, natural textures, home accents that looked like old-school jugs of milk, and more. The go-to color for the scheme was gray and whitewashed everything.

We're not throwing out rustic style altogether, but in 2022 it's getting a major makeover. Instead of farmhouse chic, reinvented rustic is the next trend to look out for. It incorporates many of the original style's favorite elements, such as reclaimed wood with natural texture and grains. However, it also blends in modern elements such as bold colors and contemporary materials such as shiny metallics and ceramics.

The Oyster Bay Hidden Lake Bistro Table by Lexington is a shining example of this update to rustic. The traditional woven rush seats and whitewashed wood paired with burnished stainless steel and nailhead trim makes farmhouse feel edgy.

2) Gray – But Make It Pop

Gray has been a homeowner's favorite for the past decade. For a while, we were seeing gray everything. Kitchens, living rooms, and furniture were all gray. It's easy to see why – it's neutral but never boring, classy and sophisticated, and was a welcome change to the over-the-top Tuscan theme that dominated the early 2000s.

But is gray on its way out in 2022? Not really, according to our design experts, but you can expect to see some changes. In 2022 you're likely to see darker grays on walls, opposed to the light barely-there grays of years past. It's not just the shade that's changing, but the accents and furniture that go with it.

As far as interior design trends in 2022, look for gray schemes that feature bold accent chairs, sofas, and eclectic end tables with bright pops of color. More specifically, you're likely to see bright sunny yellows and statement-making cyan blues. It's a little more Art Deco with a contemporary twist.

2022's grays are on full display in this room featuring the Highland Park gray dining room group by Bernhardt Loft. With light and shadow, you can create a striking palette in shades of gray.

3) Cottage Core Is Here to Stay

You've seen the magazine-worthy social media posts and videos that feature the new trend of cottage core. Full of wicker furniture, greenery and house plants, pastel floral prints, and a deeply nostalgic feel, cottage core has carried over to 2022.

Cottage core focuses on simplistic comfort. There are no opulent designs to be found, but instead, you'll see lots of elegant pieces that feature straight lines and cozy home accents like throw blankets and pillows. And don't forget the vases full of fresh flowers as centerpieces on kitchen and dining tables.

However, the cottage core of 2020 and 2021 is reinventing itself just a bit. Throughout this year you'll be more likely to see elements of glam and luxury, such as decorative mirrors and wall art, or fine glassware and china, adorning the home. Add elements of lace, linen, and some warmer and cozier elements like shag rugs, and you've got cottage core for 2022.

To update your cottage core style with 2022 flair, feature your finer things in a curio cabinet like this one from A.R.T. Furniture's Arch Salvage collection.
