AbbottReedCustom Homes

Today our San Luis Obispo custom homebuilders are sharing a roundup of the latest luxury homebuilding trends on the Central Coast and beyond. Even if your summer plans don’t include building a luxury home, this is a fun time to refresh the look and feel of your existing residence or vacation home.


Say hello to cobalt stoves and yellow dryers – bright appliances in all colors of the rainbow are seriously in style. If you prefer stainless steel for major appliances, add a pop of color with your toaster instead…they’re available in more shades than ever to complement your countertop.


Patterned flooring adds visual interest to a room and can truly tie a look together. Moroccan-inspired designs and geometric shapes are two styles in particular with the power to floor your guests!


Playful and eye-catching, patterned fabrics are a practical way to showcase some personality. Forget matchy-matchy. When it comes to furniture and throw pillows, pair florals with stripes and ombré with geometric shapes. It’s a brave new world and there really aren’t any rules.


Soft and luxurious, velvet is a trend that’s come back in a big way. The plush upholstery is popping up almost everywhere. Custom upholstery in a sophisticated hue adds texture and interest to entertaining spaces.


If you’ve always gravitated toward lavender, this is your year. The Pantone Color of the Year is ultra violet. The great thing about this blue-based purple is that it evokes both a modern and vintage feel simultaneously. The color also happens to be extremely versatile. From the kitchen to the bedroom, the hue can be accentuated with modern art and architectural details, or simply provide a statement as an accent wall in the entryway.


Silver with gold? Yes and yes. Interior designers around the globe are giving you the green light to mix metallics. From kitchen and bathroom fixtures to outdoor dining rooms, mixing metallics is an appealing way to add interest to your home. If you’re looking to add soft warmth to any space, blend rose gold accents paired with just about any metal for a complimentary glow.


Elevating the bathroom into a spa-inspired sanctuary is a rewarding transformation you’ll actually enjoy and appreciate everyday, and doing so doesn’t have to be complicated. Touches like a new tub or patterned flooring can make a major impact.


It might sound like the Japanese horseradish wasabi, but wabi sabi is actually the Japanese aesthetic that honors the beauty in imperfection, particularly in handcrafted wears such as ceramic pottery. So proudly share your collection, imperfect or otherwise.
