Campy + Kitschy in Cosa Mesa.

Defying convention can create results that are unexpected and intriguing. That’s what designers Melissa and Marc Palazzo, who own interior design and project management firm Pal + Smith, did with their remodeled residence showcased in the final Metropolitan Home December issue. I like the fresh pops of yellow and green throughout the home, grounded by the white walls and deep-toned furniture and accessories. The mix of materials and decided placement of art creates a very personalized space. Both natural and man-made elements are allowed to flourish inside and out.
