For Alan Tanksley, art meets chalet in a Hollywood-inspired vacation home.

erhaps it’s no accident that the Hitchcock 1959 classic North by Northwest is a favorite film of interior designer Alan Tanksley. The Frank Lloyd Wright Fallingwater-inspired limestone and glass modernist house where Cary Grant goes to save love interest Eva Marie Saint contains rivers of design inspiration around every cantilevered corner. Case in point is Tanksley’s latest project—a family vacation home for serious art collectors where a 1970s chalet doubles as an updated movie set. Designed in conjunction with architect James Dayton of James Dayton Design in Minneapolis, Tanksley says the house, purchased in the 1970s, had all the trappings of the ’60s, complete with a sunken conversational living room. “All you needed was a John Denver soundtrack in the background,” the Manhattan-based designer quips. The goal was simple—renovate and modernize the house for collectors and major patrons of the arts who wanted a great place to go for family vacations as well as exhibit their art.
