Alexan ALX Style Atelier: 2017’s Hottest Hues for the Home (According to Social Media)

It’s no secret, eye catching colors are one of the best ways to add personal style to any interior. With over dozens of unique apartment floor plans at Alexan ALX, it’s easy to find the perfect match for your personality and make it your own using inspirational interior styling and color scheme ideas from magazines, online avenues, and even design influencers on social media.  Today, we’re rounding up some of this year’s most vetted hues for the home according to social media and beyond. Here we go…


Black and White – OK, so this one will most likely ALWAYS be on the list. The classic combo of white with black accents (or is it black with white accents?) goes perfectly with Alexan ALX’s modern, but timeless approach to luxury apartment living in downtown San Diego.

Minimalist Pastels – There is something really calming about a pastel wall or accent piece.  Hues like sea foam green and sage are unexpected without “over doing it.” Imagine coming home to your designer apartment home at Alexan ALX, taking a soak in the rooftop zero-edge pool and spa, and zen-ing out after a long, productive day!


Millennial Pink – The name of the color says it all! Style bloggers love it, and it’s quite the power pastel right now. Alexan ALX’s hardwood flooring mixed with this shade will give you a romantic, yet refined look. PS. If you’re not a huge fan of pink but still want to incorporate the trend, try sourcing an art piece or painting that contains the color.

Honey – Honey, you are home! This bold, gold tone evokes the royal feeling that you get when you’re a resident of Alexan ALX. Our high-rise luxury apartment homes are in San Diego’s most-wanted downtown location and blend the perfect combination of comfort and luxury. Our goal is to make sure that every resident truly feels pampered and like San Diego royalty! Again, if you’re not ready to take the plunge with painting an entire wall, try honey-hued accent pillows or a piece of furniture.

Copper – Goodbye rose gold, hello copper. This trend does really well in the form of home décor accessories or “knickknacks” as our grandparents may call them, and it’s an unexpected, beautiful combination with Alexan ALX’s stainless steel appliances. Our design team did not cut any corners – we wanted residents to have the very best in modern amenities! That’s why every Alexan ALX gourmet kitchen has GE stainless steel appliances, with GE Monogram Collection options in our penthouse layouts.


Charcoal – Charcoal in general has been trending this year. Have you tried a charcoal infused drink yet? It’s definitely a thing, and Alexan ALX has dozens of fun bars and eateries just steps out the door that feature charcoal juices and drinks on the menu! But if you’re going to use charcoal in the home, stylists suggest utilizing it as a simple, yet dramatic backdrop or textile theme (rugs, linens, etc.).
