Just like fashion designs and hair styles, home décor trends are constantly changing and evolving. Each new season brings a new must-have feature for your home. In order to keep your San Diego home appealing to your guests or prospective buyers, what are trends that you can incorporate into your décor?

- Bright Paint Colors
Vibrant (and even neon) hues are very popular in fashion at the moment and they also can look great on your walls. If you are looking for a way to freshen up a dull room, a bright pop of color can really do the trick. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming if you keep the rest of the room neutral and use the bright color as an accent.

- Original Artwork
Decorating your home with unique and original works of art from funky local artists can bring a sophiticated but bohemian vibe that is perfect for San Diego beach real estate. You could find such pieces at a local art fair or on online craft auction websites. If you are searching for a bargain, you can also check out a local art school or university art program where you can sometimes buy student artwork at bargain prices.

- 1920s Inspired Designs
With the Roaring 20s being revitalized on the silver screen in the show Boardwalk Empire and the film The Great Gatsby, designs from the 1920s are becoming more popular. Why not incorporate some gorgeous Art Deco furniture or decoration into your home? Check out auctions to find authentic vintage pieces. If you are the crafty type, refinishing these pieces to match a color scheme can make the effect even greater.

- Simple Wood
An almost always on trend choice, unfinished exposed wood furniture, with a very natural texture and feel often fits well in the coastal living setting of San Diego County. These simple wood pieces give your home a natural beauty that compliments any color. It works well with neutral accents to give the home a very peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.

- Stripes and Graphic Prints
Crisp patterns, graphic prints and stripes are popular at the moment in everything from fabrics to wallpaper to furniture. If you really want to make your home décor look cutting edge, incorporate some of these eye-popping graphic designs into your décor.

- Local History
Decorating with pieces that show the history of the specific area of San Diego that you live in can be a great conversation piece, not just for your out of town visitors, but also your San Diego friends from accross town. North Park, Pacific Beach, Point Loma and Mission Hills all have wildly varying roles in the history of America's Finest City. Old photos or newspaper excerpts can easily be transfered to framable prints or canvas with high quality by online vendors like Shutterfly.
