L E TTER F ROM THE EDI TOR Dear Readers,

Interior Designer, Alberto Villalobos, selects his favorite finds from the new Gallery at 200 Lex, powered by InCollect.

This is a big country. We need all that room, because there is so much talent everywhere, it can’t fit only in coastal enclaves (nor should it) and each region has its rich traditions and unique styles. In this issue, we celebrate designers near and far, some who ventured here to New York to find success, and others who have become synonymous with great design in the places they’ve always called home. Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman’s 18-year partnership is based in The Big Apple, and their work can be seen all over, but their design sense was born and nurtured much further south. Together, they bring a modern touch to graceful classic looks, peppering interiors with eclectic finds full of character. We showcase two of their recent interiors in Alabama and Tennessee that display their uncanny ability to marry the refined and the relaxed (Southern Sensibilities Meet New York Sophistication, p. 24). Ask designer MA Allen what makes a successful interior, and she’ll tell you emphatically that it’s all about mixing history with personal touches. This North Carolina native enjoys “knocking the stuffing out of antiquated ideas” and that involves a fearless use of color.

Formal entertaining spaces are always part of her plans, with a nod to the South’s famous hospitality, but first and foremost is finding the balance between utility and comfort, while incorporating each client’s individual heirlooms into their story (A Place for Everything, p.30). Detroit is a town built on ingenuity and a can-do spirit, and Michiganborn Corey Damen Jenkins perfectly embodies that Midwestern ethos while bringing an exciting energy to traditional design. Building his practice from the ground up by pounding the pavement and wining many local fans, what followed was attention from TV producers and national exposure. Now this fashion-forward design star boasts projects from Southampton to Shanghai. Inspired by the runways of Paris and New York, Jenkins brings flair and a love for impeccable tailoring to everything he touches (Refashioning Detroit Style, p.36).

Henry Glass Cylindra Dining Set

From the mountains, to the prairies, to the … oh, you get the idea, America is like a solid old house with great bones, just waiting for designers like these, mindful of the past, yet full of fresh ideas, to breathe new life into it. We’re an ongoing project.

South Toward Home: Adventures and Misadventures of My Native Land

Suzanne Kasler: Sophisticated Simplicity

Julia Reed St. Martin’s Press July 2018 256 pages $25.99

Suzanne Kasler and Judith Nasitir Rizzoli September 2018 304 pages $55

Irreverent, funny and a master at spinning a story, Southern humorist Julia Reed chronicles her new tales in the book South Toward Home: Adventures and  Misadventures in My Native Land. Whether it’s shining a light on the Delta Hot Tamale Festival or the livestock of the rich and famous, the Mississippi Delta-born author nails the history, proclivities, pleasures, and often absurdities of life in the South. Southern life is also told through the lens of her favorite subject—food and drink (her chapter “Make Mine a Scotch” is a classic) along with personal anecdotes of life in the South that for her includes cocktails parties, hunting, and fishing.

Atlanta-based designer Suzanne Kasler’s penchant for signature interiors that marry traditional and contemporary and casual elegance are the basis of her third book Suzanne Kasler: Sophisticated  Simplicity. Her past two books— Timeless Style and Inspired  Interiors—were bestsellers and her signature lines with Hickory Chair, Lee Jofa, Visual Comfort, SoicherMarin, and Ballard Designs have garnered a big following across the country. The multi-faceted designer’s edited approach to design has earned her a coveted spot on AD’s 100 and Elle Décor’s A-List.

Reed’s former books Queen of the  Turtle Derby, But Mama Always  Put Vodka in Her Sangria! and Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns and  Other Southern Specialties have become classics, and her Garden  & Gun magazine column “The High & The Low” leave readers wanting more. Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian (and fellow Southerner) Jon Meacham pens the book’s foreword.

10

In the pages of her new book, Kasler shares her secrets for timeless and well planned interiors reflecting her motto, “a room should be collected, not decorated.” The fundamentals of room arrangement, color palettes, and how to organize guest areas and outdoor spaces are illustrated through town, country, and coastal spaces. The book is a welcome addition to any design library.

Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love and Baking Biscuits Reese Witherspoon St. Martin’s Press September 2018 304 pages $35

Dream Design Live

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon is quickly becoming the Ambassador of the South. With a Southern clothing line (Draper James), roots in New Orleans and Nashville and films that play a homage to her homeland (Sweet Home Alabama, Walk the Line and The Man in the  Moon), she now adds Southern author to the mix.

Fans of Dallas decorator and La Dolce Vita blogger extraordinaire Paloma Contreras will no doubt rejoice with the publication of her first book Dream Design Live. While they say don’t judge a book by its cover, when it comes to interiors, her sensational show-stopping cover is just the tip of the iceberg.

Her new book Whiskey in a  Teacup: Growing up in the South  Taught Me About Life, Love  and Baking Biscuits says it all. Professing that being Southern is “like a pair of slippers that I put on when I’m at home,” the book is filled with advice from her grandmother Dorothea who noted, “it was a combination of beauty and strength that made Southern women whiskey in a teacup.” The book covers topics and the how-tos of entertaining, decorating, and holidays with a few Southern recipes thrown in for good measure. A lover of gingham, monogramming (“if it’s not moving, monogram it”) and the creature comforts of down-home living are on full display in this charming book.

Paloma Contreras Abrams Books September 2018 240 pages $35

Contreras takes the reader on a journey of the design process from how to turn your dreams into realities, designing welcoming and meaningful spaces and above all, accessible and comfortable rooms for living. As the author notes, “great design all begins with a happy and satisfying life at home.” A one-time Spanish teacher, the book is both a lavish design tome and personal journey as well as practical advice from design giants such as Kelly Wearstler, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, and Alexa Hampton.

For the Love of the South: Recipes and Stories from My Southern Kitchen

Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration

Amber Wilson Harper Design March 2018 256 pages $35

Carla Hall Harper Wave October 2018 336 Pages $29.99

For non-Southerners (often called Yankees by those who never got over the Civil War), making a biscuit is akin to rocket science or brain surgery. Author, popular blogger, and photographer Amber Wilson decodes the mysteries of this Southern staple in her book (and blog), For the Love of the  South: Recipes and Stories from  My Southern Kitchen.

No doubt Top Chef and ABC’s The Chew fans will recognize chef Carla Hall as the on-air chef, co-host, and cook as a television favorite. She takes her talents to a new level with her new book Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday  and Celebration. Whether you are a newbie to the cuisine or an aficionado, Hall introduces classic dishes with a fresh new twist.

From appetizers to desserts, the cookbook features recipes filled with readily available and inexpensive ingredients with full instructions on how to master the art of Southern cooking. Classics such as hushpuppies, Nashville Hot Chicken, oven-roasted okra, jambalaya, and bacon-latticed apple pie (yes, you read that correctly) are just a few of the delectable recipes. And the basics are covered as well—how to fry okra, make the perfect popover, master the often complex roux ,and lattice a piecrust. Wilson also offers tips on stocking the fridge, what to do with leftovers, and seasoning cast-iron skillets— something every seasoned Southern cook should know how to do.

Tracing her Nashville roots, she outlines Soul Food’s history, heart and identity from Africa and the Caribbean to the South. While most think of the traditional cuisine as mac and cheese, grits, barbeque, and collard greens, it’s much more. Recipes—some 145 in all—include Tomato Pie with Garlic Bread Crust, Black-Eyed Pea Salad with Hot Sauce Vinaigrette, and Caribbean Smothered Chicken with Coconut, Lime and Chicken. And last but not least, the basics with Hot Fried Chicken (Nashville style of course), buttermilk biscuits, coconut layered cake, and deviled eggs.

Coastal Blues: Mrs. Howard’s Guide to Decorating with the Colors of the Sea and Sky Phoebe Howard Abrams Books April 2018 272 Pages $35

Tracery: The Art of Southern Design

Blue-and-white design is all the rage now and it appears to stem from the colors of nature, namely the sea and sky. Atlanta and Charlotte interior designer and design expert Phoebe Howard (often known in the industry as Mrs. Howard) has captured the essence of all the shades of the perennial blues in her inspiring new book Coastal Blues. (Think interiors of beach houses and cottages to seaside manors and getaways).

Located in the coastal towns of Rosemary Beach and Inlet Beach, Florida, designer Paige Sumblin Schnell's firm The Tracery has been the go-to spot for Southern residential and hospitality interiors. Featured in Southern Living, Atlanta Homes &  Lifestyles and Birmingham Homes  and Gardens, Schnell takes her style to a national audience with the publication of her first book Tracery: The Art of Southern  Design.

Informative chapters feature never-seen-before photographs with paint color samples ranging from Sea Glass (brilliant blue), Indigo Bay (true blue) to Ocean Mist (pale blue). The book personifies all that coastal living has to offer and shows you can adapt the look for your own interiors even if you don’t have a view of the water. Coastal Blues marks the popular designer’s third book, but be sure to add her previous bestsellers The Joy of  Decorating and Mrs. Howard Room  by Room to your bookshelves.

Schnell’s tried-and-true design principles are based on the fact that “all aspects of design are interconnected and that the visions and needs of the client are paramount.” With this credo as a foundation, the book showcases nineteen homes across the country, each portraying the designer’s timeless style. Divided into five sections—Enduring Style, Spirit of Place, Crafted With Care, Along the Waterfront, and In Harmony—the book is a beautiful source of inspiration and a welcome new voice in the world of design.

Manhattan-based designer and architect duo Bill Brockshmidt and Courtney Coleman.

S

outhern worlds collided when architects and interior designers Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman met while volunteering for a common interest, the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art. Their shared passion turned into a powerhouse design firm as the pair eventually decided over dinner to merge their talents, and Brockschmidt & Coleman was born in 2001. It’s a perfect business union of sorts, as Brockschmidt (who hails from Virginia) brings an architectural background from the University of Virginia and Eric J. Smith in New York while Coleman (Corinth, Mississippi) has an architecture and design background (her great-aunt was a designer in the Mississippi Delta from the ’50s through the ’70s) with a degree from Mississippi State and worked with Ferguson & Shamamian Architects and the legendary designer David Easton. Eighteen years and counting, their penchant for classic furnishings, harmonious and often striking color palettes, timeless and functional rooms with an eye towards historical references and a nod to the past is ever present in their work, whether it be a Park Avenue duplex or a horse farm in Pennsylvania.

Bottom left: They chose a skirted table for the dining area, detailing, “You often see them in central hallways, and when the client is not serving dinner here, it does function as the main pathway from the front entrance to the kitchen and breakfast room.”


Also omnipresent in their interiors is an influence of the South, where echoes of the past play an integral part in designing for the present. It’s hard not to be inspired by their roots, as Brockschmidt, who is a fan of designers David Adler and his sister Frances Elkins, details, “Typically the South has the best in traditional décor and a very undecorated look that mixes with antiques and is comforting and interesting.” Coleman concurs, “Southerners have always been the most sophisticated consumers. They travel, are welleducated, and their interiors are very personal. They love sentimental antiques that tell tales about them. We find that heirlooms set the tone.” Southern sensibilities and a love of historical interiors came into play for the ELLE Decor A-Listers when they were tapped to redesign and decorate the Nashville home of the Pulitzer Prize- winning presidential historian and MSNBC pundit Jon Meacham, his wife Keith and their three children. Returning to their roots (the Sewanee-educated Meacham is a native of Chattanooga and Keith is from Mississippi), the couple fell in love with the 6,000-square-foot Georgian white brick home once known as “Horseshoe Hill” that sits atop four-plus acres in Belle Meade. Built in 1915, the gracious home had what can best be coined as “good bones.” The goals were simple—a home comfortable for family and entertaining and a library big enough to accommodate the books of a former Executive Editor of Random House and eight-time author. “When the Meacham’s moved back, they hired us along with landscaper Ben Page and architect/builder Ridley Wills of Nashville and wanted a southern place that was not too opulent. They wanted to hear the floorboards creak and hear the screen door slam,” notes Coleman. And since Meacham wanted no changes to the basic footprint of the floor plan, every room had to live up to its potential in terms of function. Some changes ensued as Brockschmidt explains,

Top: For the Meacham house in Nashville, the designers took the original scenic Zuber wallpaper from the hallway and made them into panels for the powder room where “they give an unexpected atmosphere—and the scenes of boar-hunting and reveling hunters seems a bit more humorous.”

Bottom: The kitchen hood was designed by architectural designer and contractor Ridley Wills as the designers noted, “It arrived in a pick-up truck driven by the proud maker and it really provides the character of the room.”

“The dining room was made circular and the curved side between the kitchen and family room provided a passageway.” The designers came up with a brilliant chrome yellow color from Ralph Lauren Home called Monticello Yellow, a nod to Meacham’s book Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power that he was ironically working on at the time of the move. Cosmopolitan meets southern traditional as the furnishings came from the antique mecca of New Orleans. “Keith wanted to shop there and we found the quirkiest pieces in the house,” says Coleman. Her design partner agrees, noting, “They requested classical forms that were formal and lively and wanted the house to be used for entertaining. They had a beautiful Regency chair and a dramatic 18th-century Swedish settee that made the living room really interesting.” Other furnishings added to the mix included a pair of Napoleon III

chairs, 19th-century wing chairs while Southern art, political memorabilia and one of the designer’s special touches— framed maps of the owner’s home states dot the walls of the house. The entry received a dramatic treatment, replacing an existing hunt scene (Nashville is big on horses and fox hunts) with a bold custom colored early 19th-century geometric wallpaper known as “Philadelphia Harlequin 1800-1815” from the design duo’s favorite go-to source, Adelphi Paper Hangings. “The entrance had a bland hunting scene that was faded. We took the paper and made it into panels that found a home in the powder room,” Coleman details. And Meacham’s library? The sunroom off the living room was turned into a library/office and painted in a lacquered dark-blue paint that early morning cable news watchers will no doubt recognize as a backdrop. “We wanted the dark color of the walls to be cozy and make it feel like a library. The room looks out on the full landscape and your eye just goes there and brings the garden inside.” The result is one that the third President, Neoclassical aficionado, Francophile, and architect Thomas Jefferson would no doubt approve.

“A true Southern home is comfortable and inviting, with various conversation areas and a place to put your drink, of course!” says interior designer MA Allen when asked about the hallmarks of Southern interiors. The designer, who launched her Raleigh, North Carolina firm in 2011, is quick to add that it’s also about mixing historical elements and deeply personal touches. “Classic architecture, children’s portraits, old silver, wallpaper—decorate with things that show your heritage,” she tells her clients.

“People are looking for interiors that reflect their taste and lifestyle and I respond to my clients’ aesthetics, but I take their functional needs into account first,” explains Allen. “We incorporate their heirlooms into initial design plans, whether that means adding a niche for an antique chest or by adding built-in bookshelves to display curiosities. The end result functions perfectly for the client and tells their story at the same time.” That harmony of utility and beauty is what Allen says makes her clients realize that they couldn’t have designed their homes on their own. “I take great responsibility in getting a project’s bones right from the beginning. Then we can help them tell their stories.”

32

Effortless entertaining is another crucial aspect to Allen’s clientele. “Southerners know how to throw a party and love doing it!” she says. To that end, she plans plenty of space for all that her clients may bring: grandma’s china, great-grandma’s silver, that big heirloom sideboard. And for clients who still set traditional tables—“linens on linens on linens,” laughs Allen—there will be no lack of storage. “As a Southerner, I cannot abandon all that is formal and I’ll never own a home that doesn’t have formal dining and living rooms, but it’s always about balance. I try to make casual areas highly functional too, so that we can still hang on to the formal spaces,” she adds.


Allen, a North Carolina native whose parents were both in the furniture and design business, treasures the past (she converted a 1920s brick corner shop into her charming studio) and holds fast to her family roots—“it keeps me grounded,” she says—but she’s also keen to knock the stuffing out of antiquated ideas. “Southern expectations can be stifling so its nice to be able to design interiors fearlessly, yet hold onto select traditions that make the south so special,” she says. “Southern design takes its cues from the past, honors family history and makes spaces comfortable and inviting for entertaining, but for me it’s all about putting a modern spin on it: juxtaposing old and new, pattern play, layers and lots of unexpected color!” When clients don’t bring their own family

pieces, Allen visits the 1stdibs showroom. “It’s a source I turn to often to bring in the ‘old’ I need to help balance all the new,” she says. For vintage-driven projects, she tends to seek contemporary lighting from Arteriors and Visual Comfort to add contrast. One day, she hopes to have her own pieces available through the NYDC. “I’m dying to design a furniture line as well as fabrics and wallpaper,” she says, noting that creating custom pieces for her clients is one of her biggest joys. But for now she’s focused on myriad projects all along the Eastern Seaboard and renovating her new family home. “We bought a stately Georgian and are building an addition in order to make it perfect for our family of five,” says Allen, who with her husband welcomed their third

child this summer. “Incorporating a large butler’s pantry was key for function and aesthetics. We entertain often so the space will offer a second large sink and dishwasher. I’m also designing the cabinets to display my everexpanding collection of china, silver, and colored glass in an interesting way. And well-planned storage will allow for tablecloths to be hung!” she gleefully reveals. “The formal living room is done with hand-painted wallpaper and bullion fringe on the upholstered pieces, but all in modern colors. And the family room opens to a covered porch and a formal garden—an added place to entertain!” she says. For Allen, as well as her clients, it’s order and ease that foster genuine hospitality, perhaps the single greatest tenet of Southern style.

hen you think of Detroit, images of the Motor City that birthed Motown, the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, and pop diva Aaliyah come to mind. Filled with artists, designers, and creative entrepreneurs, the nation’s oldest city is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, ushering in a new world of style and design. Enter Michigan native and interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins, who is prominently placing Detroit on the design map. Heralded for his use of dazzling, bold, and eye-popping use of color with timeless architecturally rich rooms that he aptly notes,

“are classic, chic and have no expiration date.”

Jenkins love of black and white as evident in the contemporary rug is an interesting contrast to the antique center table and caramel-colored leather chair.

Jenkins design story is one of perseverance, and like his beloved city, a great comeback tale. Facing a layoff from his successful job as a commercial design agent during the recession of 2008, he realized, “People were not looking to hire an interior designer as they were skittish on the economy. The jobs were not coming to me, so I had to go to them. I decided to create color boards and drew some 3D rooms and literally went door to door in newly constructed subdivisions. I was trying to put my name out there, hang my shingle and make a name for myself.” After knocking on an astounding 779 doors, one did open, marking a stepping stone in his meteoric career. Hired by a couple who were looking to renovate their house, they were impressed by his sketches, as the designer reflects, “They said if this is what you can do with your hands and your mind, we would love to see what you could do in reality.” As a result, Jenkins had the project professionally photographed, launched a website on Go Daddy, put the

pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest (which were all in their infancy) and the rest is history. As fate would have it, HGTV was looking for talent, saw his images and hired him as a contestant on their show “Showhouse Showdown” in 2011. “They were doing ‘design wars’ theme shows pitting designers against each other. I won the competition which literally launched my career and put me on the map!” Today with a staff of six, Traditional Home’s “New Trad” Rising Design Star has decorated homes from Austin and New Canaan to the Hamptons and his home state of Michigan. And thanks to the power of social media, he has added clients from Shanghai to Switzerland moving to the U.S. to his resume. Inspired by the couture runways of New York and Paris, the multifaceted designer looks to fashion as a muse.

Influenced by the architecture of the city of Florence, Jenkins designed this bathroom for American Standard DVX

“Fashion and design are like two peas in a pod. Interior design runs

a little bit behind fashion and should be tailored and couture to meet my client’s needs,” he notes, citing Tom Ford, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Elie Saab as favorites. “These guys put these amazing vibrant color palettes together and it looks so chic on the runway. I look to how I can clearly take what’s a new cultural movement and interpret that to residential and commercial so my projects are always fresh, current and fashion-friendly.” And the Birmingham-based designer certainly walks the walk, stating, “I am a walking testimony to what I do. I like a tailored look to my interiors and should always dress the part—even if it means wearing a Ferragamo belt with my hardhat and overalls! I am that designer you see on a construction site with Tom Ford Jeans and if I can’t dress myself, I have no business designing a house.” His eponymous home furnishings line, Corey Damen Jenkins Exclusively for Leathercraft, and recently launched collection for Hudson Valley Lighting is a testament to this fact, paying a nod to his love of fashion, architecture and the use of elegant, refined materials. Jenkins also walks the walk when it comes to the mechanics of design. Not one to be a slave to trends, his credo is “things should be timeless and classic and that way the client gets much more leverage out of their rooms for a longer period of time. I don’t want people to know what year I did a project whether it is 1998, 2018 or 2058.” Using fashion, nature, organic elements and design history as a bellwether, he tries “not to get too caught up in things I know ten years from now will not be relevant. I never got on that rose gold kick as I didn’t see it being hot in the next 100 years as it wasn’t hot 100 years ago.” A regular on the college and university speaking tour, Jenkins advises students there is no such thing as rules in interior design as rules are made to be broken. “So long as you understand good principles of design, when it comes to scale, texture, color, placement and a visual energy, you can apply those principles to any design aesthetic whether

it be traditional or modern. I try to use that when I am approaching a project for a client to make it feel like them. There is a cohesive approach through all of my projects when it comes to good quality and a visual story that is compelling.” As for his beloved town of Detroit, the designer proudly boasts, “We have amazing historical architecture here with beautiful Tudor style homes that date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Italianate edifices look just like New York City. We are also a foodie town, home of Motown and as one of the country’s oldest cities, Detroit really has a lot of wealth and culture. We are the city that makes this country move. People of all different cultures and languages moved here from all over the world and Detroit is like a phoenix rising from the ashes.” (Opposite page) Top: Vibrant green lacquered paint and a colorful toile wallpaper provides the perfect backdrop for the fantasy bathroom.

With the increasing presence of Taiwanese eateries in New York, restaurants have to offer something special to stand out, and Astor Place’s 886 does just that. 886 is a fun and playful twist on traditional Taiwanese, distinguished by the traditional dishes that are served a contemporary setting. The setting is all neon lights, bold murals and clean lines, inspired by designer Scott Kester’s aim to evoke Taiwanese nightlife. Among the dazzling mirrors and bright colors, diners can chow down on a menu inspired by founder Eric Sze’s childhood in Taiwan, with delectable dishes including updated version of a fried chicken sandwich using a marinated chicken leg, and a flavorsome daikon slaw. The Sausage Party, a mouthwatering medley of pork, peanut, cilantro, and duck yolk, is a must-try.

Israeli-born chef Einat Admony brings her magic touch to couscous at Kish-Kash. Having already introduced delicious falafel at her eatery, Taïm, Kish-Kash is her next venture. Centering around authentic Moroccan couscous, Kish-Kash celebrates North African Jewish Cuisine. The brightly-tiled room is light and airy, evoking the freshness of the ingredients, and is filled with tempting aromas from the open kitchen. The experience is communal, encouraged by the shared dining table; Einat wants the atmosphere to be like eating with your network of family and friends. Delicate stews, like the white fish in warm and spicy tomato, add signature flavor to the filling couscous.

Atomix is a sleek and austere space decorated in neutral wood and gray shades. It’s a muted backdrop to the creative explosions of taste on the ten-course tasting menu. This endeavor is truly a labor of love for the husband-and-wife team Ellia and Junghyun Park, who have put an astonishing level of thought into each aspect, right down to the chopsticks from their own collection. Chef Junghyun Park made his name at Jungsik, earning two Michelin stars there, and now wants to give diners the chance to “dive deep” into Korean cuisine. Guests sit at a U-shaped table with the chef center-stage and try eight savory dishes and two desserts. A standout dish is a platter of raw fish, including marinated sea bream, sea urchin, and tangerine sauces, evocative of fermented Korean flavors.

The first thing to mention about Manhatta is that incredible, panoramic view of the surrounding city that hits visitors as soon as they step out of the elevator to the 60th floor. Manhattan’s skyscrapers glitter as diners relax into the welcoming atmosphere, a place that according to owner Danny Meyer should be both “a love letter to New York” but also a place where people can feel at home. Meyer is successful in striking the balance between ease and elegance, luxury and relaxation, from the sleek wooden chairs outfitted with plush leather seats, to the walnut and bronze fittings, which add to the warmth of the design and create a contrast to the silver of the city outside. Chef Jason Pfeifer has created a French-inspired seasonal menu that includes scotch snails and halibut with roasted fennel. A must-try vanilla soufflé with butterscotch sauce is among the rich offerings for fans of dessert.

One of the most hotlyanticipated hotel openings in 2018, this partnership between the Marriott and hotelier Ian Schrager, who is also starting his own brand of Public hotels, is perfect for those who want to stay right in the beating heart of New York. Set to open this fall, the mammoth new building overlooks Times Square, and will be encircled with a nine-story LED screen which will sit below the guest rooms. The goal is to give the 452 rooms a direct view into the pulse of Times Square, all from the comfort of their own hotel rooms. A restaurant opens onto a 5,800-square-foot beer garden and performance space overlooking the streets below. The hotel also offers a 1,300-square-foot, one-ofkind penthouse that boasts the largest balcony in the area. Amenities include a stateof-the-art fitness center, five on-site restaurants under the purview of Michelin-starred chef John Fraser, and many more.

The Hoxton has finally come stateside, and this “anti-hotel” certainly lives up to the hype. Here, hip minimalism meets authentic Brooklyn style in a historic Williamsburg building that was once home Rosenwach Water Tank Company. Whether guests choose a “Cosy” and “Roomy” room, all 170 enjoy king-sized beds and floorto-ceiling windows, some of which boast a view of the iconic New York skyline. Brass fittings contrast with exposed concrete ceilings and the linen is bespoke, designed by local artists. The public spaces channel a relaxed Brooklyn vibe with local chefs developing stand-out menus for the three on-site restaurants. The rooftop bar tops it all off, with stunning views and a creative cocktail menu. Amenities, or “Hox Perks,” include a breakfast bag, free international telephone calls, and a minibar at supermarket prices.

The latest idea from Ian Schrager, the man who founded Studio 54 and is currently also opening the Times Square Edition, Public Hotel promotes “accessible luxury.” Impeccable design merges with a little party spirit to create a streamlined but still playful space, utilizing concrete, pale wood, plus a lot of mirrors, and a little bit of neon. The hotel’s 370 bedrooms provide all of the essential amenities in compact spaces, while the communal spaces aim to encourage interaction. Guests can head up to the ritzy rooftop bar, which feels like it is floating above the city, or order food online from the deli downstairs. The whole idea is to eliminate the traditional trappings of hotel services for an experience that’s pared down to having a good time.

Designed in Kit Kemp’s signature contemporary British style, the Whitby boasts 86 bedrooms, each with floor-to-ceiling windows that bounce ample light off of bright colors and bold patterns, and bathrooms outfitted in luxurious granite and marble, luxury bath products, walk-in showers and double sinks. While the rooms are the types you’ll never want to leave, the lobby is equally appealing, with an elegant fireplace and intriguing library collection. The on-site restaurant offers fresh, seasonal dishes in an equally charming interior, and the daily afternoon tea, complete with classic sandwiches as well as glutenfree and vegan options, will set your stay apart from the norm. If you do choose to venture beyond the doors, you’ll find Central Park just two blocks away, as well as some of New York’s best galleries, restaurants and museums.
