This week I am in Newport Beach California; a stunning environment of hip culture, ultra swanky restaurants, and beautiful scenery. I am enamored by the interior design and ingenuity in this part of the country and love viewing spaces for their creativity and mix of texture and color.

Perched high upon a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas captures the distinctive style and opulence of the famed Laguna Beach.

Newport Beach, California Marriot Villas

Laguna beach is known for a mix of hippie, laid back culture and famed high end art. Two of my favorite things! The resort is an amazing mix of Italian architecture, with olive tree lined streets and urban interiors with loads of pink…another one of my favorite things!

I mean seriously, if you didn’t know better, you’d think I’d been here with all this fab pink. Truly a designer after my own heart and combine all this fabulousness with this view:

and I’d say I am pretty damn close to heaven. Today I go into Anaheim to meet with friends,  and then I head to the LA design center for some unique finds and some client shopping. I hope all of you have a terrific day, and don’t forget to do one small thing to love on your house today!
