by Shea Homes Arizona on March 3, 2017

 
Can you believe it’s almost spring?
Spring Fun in ArizonaAs the weather starts to warm up, nothing says “welcome to our home” quite like letting the great outdoors in. If it’s not quite warm enough yet, you can bring the outside feel into your home with open spaces and bright colors.

This kitchen, at Ambition at Eastmark, is a great example of how light and open spaces can make your home feel more welcoming and bright.
Light and Open SpacesCelebrate spring with this multipurpose room, found at Desert Ambition, that combines bright blue tones with an open space for activities that the whole family can enjoy.

Can’t Miss Design & Décor Trends for 2017

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 20, 2017

It’s a new year which means it is time for new design trends that can be used to refresh your home and make it your own. Without further ado, we give you the top design and décor trends for 2017:

1) Neutral Palate with a Splash of Color

In addition to using neutral colors such as beige, taupe and pure white to create a simple and warm atmosphere in your home, try adding a splash of rich color. Colors that are considered jewel tones, (i.e. dark red, purple, and blue), can create a welcoming feel to any room. (Fun fact: Pantone named greenery the 2017 color of the year.) These hues can be added to any room by using side chairs, throws, flowers, books, vases, picture frames or other accent pieces to make the space your own – feel free to get creative!
Neutral Palette with Pop of Color
2) White and Wood Kitchens

This year’s modern kitchen is not complete without a good ol’ simple and clean look. This can be done by upgrading to white marble or quartz counters and installing all matte appliances. Add to the simplicity by having all white or lightly-colored wood cabinets. Not only will this help the kitchen appear more spacious, but it will also make the kitchen feel fresh and airy – thus creating the perfect spot to prepare a meal with the whole family.

Design Trends of 2016: Window Coverings!

by Shea Homes Southern California on November 14, 2016

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/a0/9a/6b/a09a6ba926714ec54027207eb4738bfe.png

Tired of those old, tattered blinds you currently have on your windows? Or are you concerned about an overall lack of window coverage in general? Well you don’t have to stick with the same outdated window decor! In fact, there’s a variety of beautiful options for you to choose from, including Shutters, Woven Wood Shades, and Roller Shades.

If you’re looking for a classic style to adorn your walls, then Shutters are what you want. Shutters add class to any room, no matter the color or material. Woven Wood is a great choice for homebuyers who want to add a fresh yet organic feeling…the type of look that could be perfect for a sunny kitchen. On the other hand, Roller Shades can make a room look bold and sophisticated, an ideal choice for an office space!

Depending on your preference, these popular window trends could be just what you need to breathe some life back into your home.

So, what’s the right style of window covering for you? This video offers some handy tips from our friends at the Shea Homes® Design Studio!
