Decorating Colors - California Surfer Chic

I just got the September 2011 issue of House Beautiful - their annual color issue.  I love this magazine and get a lot of ideas (and just plain enjoyment) out of reading/studying again and again.  One article displays very bright colors in what the featured designer (Mona Ross Berman) calls California Surfer Chic.  The colors are bold and bright and crisp - very "bright, sunny and a little out of the box".

I have been focusing on decorating styles lately and am not sure where this one fits it - but probably more contemporary and eclectic   than traditional.  I have a number of pieces that I think fit this mode of decorating!  I even have a great orange piece - the designer indicates that orange is her favorite color because it feels like a younger, fresher version of red.  Large crisp graphics are also liberally displayed.
