What do we have in common with the owner of a world-recognized skateboard company? We’ll give you a hint: It’s certainly not our ability to ollie or kickflip. It’s our love for bold, unabashed colors in interiors. When the skateboard impresario and his wife got a little bored of the drab, uninspired rooms of their Newport Beach, California, abode, they turned to Melissa Palazzo of Pal + Smith, a firm known for its eclectic designs and outside-the-box collections of furniture and accessories. The result is a home that is as fun and carefree as its inhabitants, with a sense of humor and a joie de vivre all its own.
