Summer is here, so let’s say goodbye to school work, coats, and chilly mornings and hello to poolside hangs, out-of-office messages, and balmy nights. This time of year seems to put everyone in the best mood, so let your home reflect all the fun the season brings by trying a few of these exciting trends.
Shea Homes' home designs are all about using natural light to add warmth and beauty to a space. When you use light as a cornerstone for your home’s decor, it highlights the room’s personality and makes the design the star of the space.
Bold, bright, repurposed, and earth-centric elements are sure to make your home the hottest hang-out space this summer. No need to pack a bag and make a detailed itinerary when your place already feels like a staycation! Take some inspiration from our favorite residences to make your own home feel like a luxurious retreat.

Be the Bold Type

All it takes is one brightly painted door to make guests’ heads turn, smile and feel a welcome that seems to say, “Orange you glad you stopped by?” This barn door at The Cay is the perfect mood-lifter for any dinner party or casual get-together. Talk about a conversation starter!

Serene Blues for a More Serene You

Encapsulate your care-free summer vibes with a sea-inspired color palette—something that will remind you of sunny beach trips when you’re stuck inside on a rainy day. Cool blue hues make this kitchen at Pomelo at The Grove look like the ideal place to chill out with an ice cold lemonade. Who could say no to bonding over a summer salad here?! Add faux plants like this one for a low-maintenance earthy vibe.

Pattern Play Saves the Day

Who said a place of rest and relaxation had to be boring? Patterned tiles offer a surefire way to add beauty and style to a personal spa. This master bathroom at Flora at The Grove makes its tile floor the eye-catching centerpiece. The repeating design elements of tiles bring unity and cohesiveness to a space, and as you can see, the patterns in this sanctuary space paid off big-time for this residence. Try this unique tile for a major bathroom upgrade.

Get Away at Home

If the last year has taught us anything, it is that every home needs a haven, a place to retreat to when the world gets to be too much. This master bathroom at Teresina in Lake Forest combines contrasting details — such as rustic wood embellished with smooth gold drawer handles — to make the ultimate relaxation station. The brown, white, and gold color palette works to put the mind at ease, making this the perfect setting to let your thoughts drift away. Make your own sanctuary at home with these unique vases and candle holders.

A Shea home offers the best blank canvas to let your imagination play. If you’ve been looking for a sign to take more chances with your home’s interior design, this is it. This summer, let go of all your inhibitions and make your not-so-humble abode the place you really want to be.
