Design Trends We’re Loving

You’ve found the perfect spot to hang your hat at Bay Meadows in San Mateo, but what about the paintings, color pairings and pendant lighting? We touched base with Kelly Krhoun, President of Creative Design Group the design professional behind the model homes coming to Meadow Walk to find out a few of her favorite design trends this year. (Though we’ll have to wait ’til Saturday, July 9, we’re really getting excited to take a peek at 3 NEW model homes!)

What are 3 of your favorite decor trends of 2016?
Natural Rustic Décor
Modern Farmhouse Everything
Neutral Pallets with Pops of Metallic Accents

What is one of your favorite decor features of the models at Meadow Walk? 
The floor to ceiling chalk board wall in the Plan 2 dining room. The chalk board is painted with recipes of the day and is reminiscent of a neighborhood café. The chalk board wall feature is the perfect accent to the modern farmhouse theme of the home.

A lot of thought was put into: the built-in banquette dining area in the Plan 1. The banquette provides additional seating and allows for a comfortable flow. The dining room wall is also accented in washed brick, adding design texture to the space.

Don’t miss the: wine storage under the stairs in Plan 3. This is a creative way to utilize extra space, and adds a design feature to the Great Room.

Favorite color pairing for 2016: Aqua and Gray

TJ Foster,  Community Representative Shea Homes® Meadow Walk weighs-in, “I’m a big fan of whites, greys and a more modern feel. I love the clean look of a sparse room that is beautifully decorated. I think too much decoration feels cluttered and takes energy from the room.”

His favorite local shop? “Harvest in San Carlos! But I still love IKEA (Shhhhhh!) for everyday items and certain design Ideas.”

Apartment 46

Another one of our favorite spots to discover home furnishing and decor is San Mateo’s Apartment 46! This shop is the perfect combination of carefully curated furnishings, art, accessories and unique floral.  Those looking for French flea market finds will also enjoy checking out San Mateo’s Dream.
