DIY: Home Decorating on a Budget

by Shea Homes on September 9, 2014


Nobody wants to live in a dull space, no matter how minimalistic you are. There is a style out there for everyone, and home decorating is no exception. Spring and summer are great times to spruce up your home’s look, even if it’s just some new art on the wall or rearranging the living room furniture.

Fresh ideas to liven up our living spaces are out there, but sometimes they are just too expensive. Unless you’re looking for an extreme makeover, who has the money (or time) to spend? That leaves us with just one option: a DIY project. People are rolling up their sleeves and packing on the elbow grease in order to get the decor they want in their home, so it might be worth giving a try. Whether you’re a beginner at home decorating or a weathered expert, let your creativity flow! You’ll be sure to find a project you like. [read more…]

Our annual Pet Photo Contest is back! Submit and win up to $100!

by Shea Homes Arizona on September 5, 2014

petcontest1petcontest2Each year, we love hosting our Pet Photo Contest to promote interaction on our social media sites and to support a very important cause and local organization, The Arizona Humane Society! For each “Like” we get on our Facebook page, or each “Follower” we gain on our Twitter, during the Pet Photo Contest, we donate $1 to AHS up to $1,000! After four years of donating, we felt that we wanted something more with this great organization, and what pairs better together than pets and homes? While meeting with the Arizona Humane Society (AHS), sparks were flying and a purr-fect partnership was born!petcontest2.1

Like most relationships these days, the Shea Homes Arizona and Arizona Humane Society relationship is blossoming through technology! And we are excited to spread the word about why homeowners should adopt shelter pets, and how to care for them!

Last year, we also donated three houses worth of furniture from our model homes to their newest thrift store on 4240 West Camelback Road! They have two other thrift stores in Sunnyslope at 1311 W. Hatcher Road and Tempe at 755 W. Baseline Road.

petcontest2.2The rising number of homeless animals on the street can be attributed to a number of things, but mainly to the irresponsibility and lack of spaying and neutering animals. We are striving to help AHS with awareness of this issue in the community and hope to get every deserving animal a loving home! So through this pet contest, we encourage you to adopt! Don’t shop.

We are so excited to be continuing our partnership with the Arizona Humane Society this year! You can learn more about the Arizona Humane Society at their website, on their Facebook page or through their Twitter feed.

If you are a current pet owner and thinking about becoming a homeowner, read our blog post about all the pet options that we offer in some of our home plans and communities! We would love to be the homebuilder to provide your family, including furry family members, a comfy home!

For more information on what we’re up to at Shea Homes Arizona, visit our Facebook page, tweet with us on Twitter, get informed and educated on our YouTube channel or get inspired with us on Pinterest!
