In preparation for the year ahead, Taylor Morrison has invited a panel of design experts from coast to coast to share the latest trends for 2022. The six highlights touch on the effect of the pandemic on homes, popular colors and design styles, and how technology will influence design in the years to come.
1. Influence of the pandemic: The COVID-19 pandemic has led many homebuyers to pay renewed attention to comfort and functionality. “Our customers want homes with expanded daily entry areas, more bulk storage, larger kitchens, increased outdoor space, and more dedicated spaces for studying and working from home,” says Brian Juedes, vice-president. President of Taylor Morrison Product Design.
2. Old meets new: Just like fashion, interior design styles never really go away for good. In 2022, designers at Taylor Morrison predict homeowners will mix traditional design elements, like colorful patterned wallpaper and rich wood tones, with more contemporary pieces. “People are staying home longer, so they’re opting for a look that doesn’t go out of fashion quickly,” says Laurie Jiu, a Las Vegas-based designer.
3. Colorful living: For the second year, Taylor Morrison has compiled a palette of paint colors for its 2022 color collection, which centers around Sherwin-Williams color of the year Evergreen Fog, a color that speaks of well-being and nature. . “More than ever, we’re embracing nature and the great outdoors at home,” said Lee Crowder, National Director of Design and Modeling Experience.
4. Technological transformation: Technology is changing the way homes are built in 2022. Today’s buyers can start the dishwasher from a hockey practice or start a forgotten laundry from the office. “Being able to control your devices through your phone makes life a lot better for our owners,” says Crowder.

According to Austin-based designer Nicole McCall, “We’ve seen buyers bring in pinecones and crystals as inspiration and ask us to design their homes around those items.” This trend lends itself to neutral and warmer hues, live plants, and bohemian decor accents like jute and rattan.
6. Idyllic and industrial: Based on the industrial era of the 18th to 19th century, this trend relies on the combination of exposed brick, concrete, dark metals and distressed wood elements to create a quaint living space. “We see a lot of modern concrete and black hardware,” says Jiu.
