Home Staging San Diego Style ~
It's all about style these days and when it comes to what's "in style" (or "on-trend" as people are saying so often these days) where you are makes a difference! For us, here in San Diego, CA, the homes we stage and remodel for the most part are near the beach or a beach community. Styles in home decor and what's "on-trend" will reflect that atmosphere.
We see lots of beach-themed design and in our opinion, it fits! Homes that we stage in this area will often enjoy ocean breezes and the people that live here tend to live an outdoor lifestyle. With out year-round temperate climate it just naturally leads people to be outdoors and active. Fashion choices, home decor preferences and even your car can be a reflection of the way people live here.
The emphasis on outdoor living and our climate means that in their homes people may want a living space that brings the outdoors inside. They may want an open concept home & one where you can step right out onto the patio - a place that is likely to be used year round in our area. The coastal feel translates to a color palette that reflects the ocean and bright blue skies. You see a lot of natural elements in the design patterns in the homes we see every day.
Our favorite color palette tends to run to shades of blues & greens that you would see in the ocean and sky, to shades of tan that remind you of sandy beaches and touches of coral and gold that reflect our wonderful sunsets. Decor will often include natural elements such as reclaimed wood, sea shells, sea fans, water elements and live green plants and flowers. Orchids do well here and we often stage with flowers that are in season - we have Birds of Paradise in bloom year round so those are always a option here, bringing a beautiful touch to any room.
Every area has it's own "style" and those of us in the staging business are aware that there is no one "right" style. The decor we use in our design may reflect the area and it's character or may be more about the specific home and it's architectural style or neighborhood. Even the season plays a part - every year as we approach the holidays we will add autumn colors and holiday accents. At HomeScapes we are in love with the area and all it has to offer, so we are grateful to have our inspiration be the ocean at our side.
What's your style? Our best to you all as spring approaches!
