Del Mar and Solana Beach Market Reports

In 2016 our team held 224 Open Houses and met a wide variety of buyers active in the market place. We noted some purchasing hesitation with buyers in the late Summer and early Fall prior to the election. With our sellers, we primarily found they were moving up in home size or selling vacation/investment properties. We saw more sellers who accepted contingent offers and they generally received higher sales prices than sellers who accepted non-contingent offers.

3 Fresh Home Design Looks for the New Year 
Va-va Velvet
For years, the design industry has been buzzing about texture, and how plush or sinuous fabrics flip a design on its head for a totally unique effect. In 2017, the texture trend continues with the rise of velvet.

Velvet is a classic fabric that periodically enjoys a new surge of popularity. This year, we see velvet used on every furniture piece imaginable, from ottomans to dining room chairs to the smallest fringed detail.

Darling Denim
Everyone loves a great pair of jeans, so it's no mystery why the design world is falling for denim fabrics, motifs, and patterns for home interiors.
Channeling indigo hues and a perfectly worn-in feel, the denim trend of 2017 offers approachability to furnishings, finishes, and fabrics alike.
Taking cues from the velvet trend, denim-like fabric can be found on ottomans, window coverings, bed linens, and area rugs, offering a simple yet sophisticated take on everyone's favorite fabric.
Stripe Story
Designers use stripes as a "neutral" element to anchor a space with clean lines and bold colors. In 2017, stripes will be used as a statement-maker all on their own.

With a bold brushstroke down the middle of a wingback chair, or as a re-imagined wallpaper pattern, the single stripe is the new must-know print. Stripes, whether a simple pinstripe or graphic configuration, can be worked into any space, from uber-modern to tailored and traditional.
