David Phoenix, Does California have its own style?

We fell in love with one of California's designers, David Phoenix.  He has been a designer for 20 years.  House Beautiful recognized his talent, and awarded him the title of one of America’s Top Young Designers.  Do you think California has its own style? 

We are in love with this room he designed.   Cozy and comfortable.  The soft colors of the fabric softens the stone wall. Can't you see your self by the fire, with a cup of coffee and 2 pieces of chocolate! 

He has a versatile and sophisticated style.

Look how he successfully, coordinates the fabric on the pillows and the drapes. He uses a floral,  stripes, a geometric, and the Greek key pattern .We also like how he used the coral on the table. 

Love the white, painted wood walls and the soft beige fabrics. Just a hint of blue in the books. In this setting that little bit of blue is strong.

Loving all the creamy white walls.

Look at the blue Jar...Love!

Casual but formal. Like a pair of jeans, with a dressy shirt and diamond earrings.

Are we ever going to get sick of white kitchens and marble?  Love!

David Phoenix has decorated homes for the Kennedy family, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, and actor Rob Lowe.  His work has been on the covers of Architectural digest and California homes.

  10. what lovely rooms...love the relaxed nature, the soft muted beigey tones and the gorgeous woods and fabric...interesting that certain regions do have their own style...think "New England" for example....
