“Oldie” but goodie

I don’t remember where or even when I first spotted the Orange County, CA home of designers Marc and Melissa Palazzo, but that’s besides the point. I’ve rediscovered their ultra cool interiors, and the mix of stellar lighting choices, a standout Lulu DK fabric, animal hides, fur, neutrals with pops of color, European touches, and plenty of open white spaces within a wood and glass contemporary house…and it’s really doing it for me, again…

And you know I love how they changed it up ever so slightly, swinging easily between eclectic, mod, regency, and contemporary. SOLD!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. OMG I love this house!!! Especially the exterior. And I actually have ripped out pages of it hanging on my inspiration board right now. Such a cool mix of everything…

  2. So many things I love about this space! The color punctuating all the open white space, the mix of woods, the glass and ceramic accents. There’s glamour there, but no pretense, like you’d feel right at home as a guest to curl up on the couch with the dog and dangle in the chair beneath the tree– a vibe many of us (myself included) are looking to achieve in our own spaces.

  3. the swing in the huge tree outside is my fave. And the aqua leather chairs!

  4. I loved this home tour the first time I saw it and am loving it all over again on your blog today 🙂 Such a great mix of styles, textures and color! xoxo – Julie

  5. So many good elements to point out. The seat cushion in photo five is from Cost Plus! I know this because I have a pair sitting on my from porch. I can’t help but feel slightly cooler. : ) I wouldn’t never thought to have put it on that type of chair.

  6. Seeing that these shots came from Met Home magazine reminds me how sorry I am that it is now gone. I remember seeing that home and loving it. Thanks!
