Creative outdoor spaces, florals and nature-inspired textures top Shea Homes® list this summer!

Have you been following #DesignTrendTuesday on the Shea Homes SoCal social media channels this year? The Shea Homes Design Studio in Southern California has been providing their insight on trends they are loving in 2019, and sharing ways to help you design your dream home.
We’ve definitely got summer vacation on the brain, but that doesn’t always mean packing up and hitting the road or hopping on a plane to travel overseas. Staycations are as equally fabulous (in our humble opinion), and what better way to relax at home than by turning it into a tranquil oasis of all your favorite things?

Scroll down to find out how you can brighten up your living spaces this summer!

Beautiful flowers in various shapes, sizes, and colors are blooming all around us!

Many of our current design inspirations come directly from Mother Earth. Organic shapes, amazing colors, natural textures, and fun fabrics and carpets are inspired by the whimsical feeling of spending time outdoors in nature.
