Pantone’s controversial choice isn’t exactly getting a universal thumbs up from arbiters of style, but this red with brown undertones is going to have its ride in the decor universe anyway. Orange County interior designers sound off on how to make it work at home.

Make Room For Marsala

Merry Mod Monday

Bask Magazine

If mod contempo is your style all year, follow trend and go festively understated this season. Think clean and sophisticated with some elements of nature — an everyday swank philosophy from the designers at Studio Chameleon.

“We love contemporary, love to add color and also to mix in some Mother Nature in everything we do,” says Teana Dunlap, interior designer at the always-current Newport Beach design store.

Newport Beach Style Makers

Newport Beach Magazine

“A home in Newport Beach is not just a structure — it’s a lifestyle…Here we celebrate those who take houses to the next level: They’re the true style makers of Newport Beach. These are the architects and interior designers who take the concept of a structure and make it a cherished place to come home to.”

“When interior designer Eve Lowey moved to Newport Coast in 2001, she faced a design dilemma: How could she design her home to reflect Newport Beach’s renowned elegance and luxury, yet still create a place where she and her husband could kick back and their three children could have friends over, create messy art projects and rough house with the dogs?”

La Casa del Camino Opens Surf-and-Skate Suites in Laguna Beach

Los Angeles Times
Former pro skateboarder Pierre Andrés Senizergues, founder of the footwear and apparel company Etnies, is designing more than sneakers these days.

Hotel Boasts a Sink Any Skater Would Love

Orange County Register

How about sleeping in a maple wood, king-sized bed made of the same materials as an Etnies skateboard? This is just a glimpse into the Etnies Skate Room at La Casa del Camino – one of 10 action-sports-themed designer-remodeled suites at the oceanfront Laguna Beach hotel.

The suites are known as the Casa Surf Suites.

Designer Eve Lowey of Studio Chameleon carried the orange from the living room into the bedroom with small touches. Twin mirrors flank the bed, and one strong art piece provides a focal point. Lowey used her vintage glass collection on the end tables of a built-in couch, plus pillows to bring orange into the pale powder blue and brown room.

Loft-Style Living – A Design Tour Showcases Open Style in Irvine

Orange County Register
You might think that loft living is not your style, since you are used to living in cozy spaces with small windows and many walls. But wow, the six loft apartments at the Astoria in Irvine on the 13th and 14th floors are a breath of fresh air. Up to 40 designers from the American Society of Interior Designers worked with the light from towering windows to bring six distinctive spaces anyone could call home. If you like color, you will want to drink in the details. Allow yourself plenty of time to absorb the texture on the walls, the floor treatments, the lighting, the views. Each apartment is unique in its color scheme and style. Loft living is a lifestyle. Set up like a resort, Astoria provides homeowners with pool and spa, fitness center, wine vault and business center. This year’s tour of four penthouses and two lofts benefits the Orange County Performing Arts Center.
