As the head of Scottsdale’s Palavela Home Showroom, Philip Johnson has grown to appreciate the elegant details that color his professional world.
“I personally found my passion in the industry with fabrics,” he says of his work with interior design. “I love the complexity, variety and history that many textiles are created from.”
Johnson’s zeal for sophistication holds true for his personal style, upheld by a simplistic wardrobe that has evolved into something quite timeless.
“When you’re dealing with luxury products, it’s important to present yourself in accordance with the products you represent,” he says. For the Los Angeles native, this means preppy-yet-sporty pieces from Club Monaco and Bloomingdale’s and, of course, fabulous shoes.
With a career that sends him running all over town, Johnson styles himself from the ground up. His versatile Nike Duckboots pair well with casual button-down shirts and Mr. Turk jumpsuits, while Cole Haan loafers come in clutch for dressier occasions.
On weeknights, after a whirlwind day of client meetings and never-ending e-mails, the self-described music lover can be found honing his skills in the kitchen.
“I’m kind of a househusband,” he laughs. “I love cooking, but just like my style, my meals are simple and refined.”
When and where were you happiest? March 13-14, 2015. It was my wedding weekend in Palm Springs, California. We threw the most amazing party for our friends and family. It was perfect! What do you look forward to every summer? Long weekends in California. We tend to take three-day weekends to Los Angeles to escape the heat and relax. It seems to help mitigate the long summer. What inspires you? My inspiration comes mainly from classic trends and style; I love effortless beauty. I also love design and music. I’m pretty sure I would be miserable without music. I don’t know if it has any effect on my style, but it is really important in my life.

Jetzy Mann’s eponymous jewelry line was somewhat of a beautiful accident, sparked by the undiscovered strength the former family support adviser saw in her clients.
“Working with families and helping women regain their self-esteem made me realize my passion for helping women find the beauty within themselves,” says the proud mother of two. “The next few years, while I took some time off to raise my own family, I had the opportunity to develop exclusive relationships with jewelry designers from around the world.”
The rest is history. Jetzy’s Jewelry was born in 2015, coloring the Valley with a vibrant potpourri of necklaces, bracelets and earrings inspired by indigenous folklore and Mann’s exotic Mexican heritage.
Though balancing her mom duties with a blossoming career can be challenging at times, Mann has mastered the art of chic comfort, accessorizing her signature skinny jeans and Mexican embroidered tops with mix-and-match bracelets and exquisite handmade bags from her native country.
“It’s easier to add [jewelry] to an outfit instead of changing it a thousand times to come up with that unique look,” she says. “No matter the time of year, a necklace, a ring or bracelet will always make your outfit more attractive.”
Who is your role model and why? My husband. He is disciplined, organized, hardworking and professional. Business-wise, my role models are every indigenous woman who handcrafts items inspired by nature and loves creating original, authentic and beautiful things. Where would you most like to live? I love living in Scottsdale. It’s an ideal place to raise a family and enjoy life. But I would love to go back to the beach where I was raised in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. Where can people purchase Jetzy’s Jewelry? Sachi Salon & Spa, terés | a nail bar, and my website: www.jetzysjewerly.com. You can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’m always posting new arrivals and great deals.
