Editor’s Letter

We have an issue full of variety including two designers sharing their own homes. South Carolina designer, Linda Burnside makes her California debut with a Newport Coast second home for real estate developer Rusty Pulliam. Interior designer Tineke Triggs designs a pied-a’-pier for a San Francisco family, and Chad Eisner brings us a beautiful Malibu beach house. Our designers at home include John De Bastiani at his small, but elegant Los Angeles home and Alison Pickart shares her own family home in northern California. I love featuring life-style stories and for this issue publisher and content creator, Heidi Gerpheide, worked with photographer Karyn Millet to capture the essense of Alice Ryan Miller’s new life in Montecito, California. As we enter into the wonderful holiday season all of us at California Homes wish you and yours a peaceful and happy new year.

Letters

Purchased your Sept/Oct issue at Barnes & Noble in Tulsa, Oklahoma and as a former resident of Larkspur, California, I was reminded how much I miss my home state. You produce a beautiful magazine, keep it up! Jack Williams Tulsa, OK I received the beautiful California Homes issue including the article, Lotusland Celebrates. Thank you for making that a reality and bringing to life in your pages the beauty and magic of the event. We are thrilled with the feature. Rebecca Anderson, Director of Development - Ganna Walska Lotusland Santa Barbara, CA I am a subscriber and did not receive my October issue of California Homes. I anticipate each issue and share with my friends so please check out the status of my subscription. Angie Manroe Los Angeles, CA Editor: Angie, we sent your request on to our subscription fulfillment company and they will be sending out another copy. We are happy you like California Homes and will make sure your magazines arrive in a timely fashion. Correction: In the Healdsburg story in the last issue, the name of the owner of the Lambert Bridge Winery was incorrect. The owners are Patti and Ray Chambers. We’re sorry for the mistake.

CATALINA ISLAND MUSEUM

The Catalina Island Museum is proud to present, When Sugar Loaf Stood: Early Catalina Paintings, on display through January 27, 2019. Until its complete destruction in 1928 Sugar Loaf Rock was a defining geologic feature of Catalina Island’s tranquil Avalon Bay. Gracing the western most point of the bay, the conical rock ascended more than 50 feet into the air and served as a marker for navigation and as a place of interest and exploration for island visitors. The human manipulation of Avalon Bay’s natural landscape parallels two vital periods in history: the development of Catalina Island into a wealthy resort destination and the California Impressionist artistic movement. This exhibition brings together 30 paintings by more than a dozen distinguished artists of the California Impressionist period. For more information please call 310.510.2414 or visit www.catalinamuseum.org.

THE HUNTINGTON – SAN MARINO

Documenting one of the most creative and influential periods in Southern California architecture, Architects of a Golden Age spotlights about 20 original drawings and plans selected from The Huntington’s important Southern California architecture collection. The exhibition, on view until January 21, 2019, highlights renderings that helped bring into existence some of the most extraordinary buildings in the greater Los Angeles area, including Downtown L.A.’s Union Station, Mayan Theater, Stock Exchange building, and Chinatown structures, as well as seminal examples of the California Bungalow. For more information please call 626.405.2100 or visit www.huntington.org. 32 | CALIFORNIA HOMES

Continuing its celebration of women artists, the Monterey Museum of Art announces the opening of the photographic exhibit, “Edna Bullock: Through a Dancer’s Eye” featuring the work of California native Edna Bullock. Edna Bullock began a career in photography at the age of 61 after her husband, photographer Wynn Bullock, passed away. Although she was an important part of his life and work, her own inspiring story transformed her from supporter to prolific artist in her own right. The Monterey Museum of Art is pleased to end its Year of the Woman 2018 with a show drawn from its extensive collection of her work. Edna Bullock photographs have been displayed in over 100 individual and group exhibitions throughout the US and abroad, reproduced in numerous publications, and included in the permanent collections of major museums and institutions worldwide. She is best known for her work on the nude, which was the subject of a traveling exhibition and catalogue “Edna’s Nudes” in 1995. The exhibition at MMA will feature a variety of aspects of her diverse production, including her nudes and intriguing studies of flea markets, fences, and tree knots. For more information please call 831.372.5477 or visit www.montereyart.org. ABOVE

Fraenkel Gallery’s fourth exhibition featuring the work of Richard Learoyd will present new large-scale landscapes, photographed this summer in Yosemite and Big Sur. To achieve an exceptional level of detail, these blackand-white contact prints of the California landscape were made in a giant, tent-like camera of the artist’s own design. The show will also include intimate portraits, as well as new still life photographs of flowers in various states of decay; both series are one-of-kind color prints made in the artist’s London studio using a room-sized camera obscura. Richard Learoyd’s work will be on view until December 22, 2018. The galley is located at 49 Geary Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94108 for more information please call 415.981.2661 or visit www.fraenkelgallery.com

PACE GALLERY – PALO ALTO

Pace Gallery is pleased to announce teamLab, one view through January 6, 2019. The exhibition will feature new screen works by artist collective teamLab, an interdisciplinary group based in Tokyo whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, technology, design and the natural world. Following the highly successful 2016 presentation of teamLab’s immersive, multi-room environment in Pace’s former Menlo Park space, the upcoming exhibition in the Palo Alto gallery will feature digital single channel and interactive screen works.

SULLIVAN GOSS AN AMERICAN GALLERY

The River’s Journey: A Wider View at Sullivan Goss is the third installation of work by six artists calling themselves Rose Compass. Artists include Connie Connally, Holli Harmon, Libby Smith, Nicole Strasburg, Nina Warner, and Pamela Zwehl-Burke. Rose Compass is using their art to inform the public about our local watershed, how it functions and our individual responsibility to protect its viability. Each of the 6 members of the Rose Compass group brings 20-30 years of experience creating and exhibiting both locally and nationally. The group formed out of a shared interest to explore the watershed that feeds Santa Barbara, uniting six unique points of view. The River’s Journey Project visually brings to the forefront questions of stewardship, preservation and conservation. Through exhibitions, social media platforms and a publication they have created a new hub to link our existing agencies to a public audience. Art starts the conversation while providing education and information that can change behavior and expectations at a pivotal moment in our new paradigm of water resource management. The project is on view until December 2, 2018. The gallery is located at 11 East Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

Modern to Classic II: Residential Estates by Landry Design Group

Foreword by Paul Goldberger Text by Erika Heet For over thirty years Landry Design Group, founded by Quebec-born architect Richard Landry, has designed environments throughout the world. This monograph illustrates the eclectic range of architectural references and styles the team-based architectural firm has used to create memorable estates. Each of the 15 chapters showcases a single completed residence, opening with a conceptual sketch by principal Richard Landry. This tends to demystify the process behind the creation of these grand estates, which is exactly their purpose. As critic Paul Goldberger writes in his Foreword, “This book might almost have been called Classic to Modern…it has been clear for some time that Landry is moving, slowly but steadily, toward a more modern form of expression.” Landry has been known for his traditional styles and many of the estates in this book show that. These are houses meant to be lived in and enjoyed, not merely show homes. Goldberger continues, “The spaces flow well from one into the next and the overall massing of the exterior is almost always a well-crafted composition.” The variety of Landry Design Group is seen in this 416-page volume with houses running the gamut from a modern glass-and-steel aerie in the Hollywood Hills to a lakeside stone villa in Quebec. His firm has designed French chateaux, Italianate villas and modern glass edifices. What they all have in common is a level of sophistication and elegance which is the signature of the Landry Design Group. As an added bonus for architecture lovers, an extra section features 26 projects in progress that show the architectural diversity that Landry is known for.

DARLING DASH

Acclaimed Landscape Designer Katharine Webster Shares Her Sense and Sensibility with a New Shop on Sacramento Street

CELEBRATED LANDSCAPE DESIGNER KATHARINE WEBSTER has opened an outdoor

living studio in San Francisco’s Presidio Heights neighborhood. Located on Sacramento Street, the city’s ever-growing retail design destination, Dash Lane will offer hand-selected outdoor lifestyle furnishings and decorative accessories. Sourced from around the world, Dash Lane will carry pieces that are both handcrafted and functional, while reflecting Katharine’s casual, yet sophisticated West Coast style. Products from noteworthy brands such as Dedon and Hawkins New York, as well as artisans Andrew Molleur and Birch & Brush will not only be available for purchase, but they will be on display for shoppers to touch, test, and experience. The name Dash Lane was inspired by the scenic country lane where Katharine’s great-grandparents once lived in the Riverdale section of New York City. There, her great-grandparents owned a spectacular home that served as a source of inspiration for artistic and intellectual pursuits, from entertaining to furniture-making.

Dash Lane is located at 3352 Sacramento Street, San Francisco, CA, 94118. The boutique showroom will be open by appointment only. For more information, please call 415.757.0794 or follow on Instagram @dash_lane.

LA DOLCE VITA

Healdsburg Based Julia B Serves Grace And Style To Your Holiday Table JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

homeware designer Julia B. has released her new tabletop collection, entitled “Le Belle Donne” –(the beautiful women) following in the footsteps of last year’s critically acclaimed first Quattro Mani collection – Le Belle Città (the beautiful cities). Each year the Quattro Mani concept showcases Julia B.’s extraordinary skills both as a designer and tastemaker by creating a refreshing vintageinspired, yet completely new look at each of the four components of the tabletop: linens, plates, crystal and silverware. This year’s ‘Le Belle Elisabetta Collection Citron Donne’ collection is a stunning, often art-deco inspired tribute to four bold and beautiful historic women: Cleopatra, Elisabetta, Julietta and Anastasia. Featuring an exciting new collaboration with Bavaria’s historic Theresienthal crystal house and introducing a breadth of new and vibrant colors to the table, Julia B.’s new Quattro Mani collection is an exciting visual journey that takes one from California, to Asia, to the Middle East and Europe as its four completely new designs draw from multiple corners of the world as sources of design inspiration. “I want to celebrate bold and beautiful women, while doing do my little part to bring this increasingly divided world back to a common theme of beauty and respect for diversity,” says Julia. “Hopefully, peace, passion and elegance can be shared at every table and my goal is to also make entertaining fun, visually exciting and wonderfully fresh.” CH www.juliab.com

EXCEEDING EVERY EXPECTATION

Designer Karen Butera Continues To Provide Clients With Innovative Design BY MARTIN A. BROWER

WHEN LOCAL INTERIOR DESIGNER KAREN BUTERA moved from her long-time Corona Del Mar

studio on Coast Highway, some thought she was headed for retirement - those people just don’t know Karen. After relocating to Costa Mesa, Karen continued to exceed expectations with innovative design and exceptional interiors, as an interior designer still at the top of her game. Ready to retire? Hardly. Karen is still pioneering new concepts and loving every minute. Karen guides visitors through her Costa Mesa offices past a mock-up floor with exotic Russian amber used throughout renowned Chateau Samara on Newport’s Pelican Hill; past samples of Italian parquet flooring for Clint Eastwood’s compound in Carmel Valley; and then shares photos of her million dollar kitchen remodel in Arizona’s Paradise Valley - challenging you to locate the source of lighting.


This is only an introduction to the design innovations that define Karen’s passion for her art and begin to explain the many awards you see in her office. When Karen Butera King’s father dropped her off at Brigham Young University to begin freshman year, he gave her one instruction: “Find a job.” And find a job she did, first in an advertising agency and shortly after, at the tender age of 17, she started her own ad agency. In addition, she guided Provo, Utah’s downtown Merchants Association to new heights of creative marketing, drawing consumers downtown with special events and advertising. Karen took off running and has never stopped. Following a job managing national accounts for CBS, in New York, she opened her first interior design firm during 1978. The Inside Story was based in San Francisco. In 1982 she changed the name to Karen Butera Inc. and grew the firm into an award-winning international design and merchandising firm with offices throughout the United States and in London. Over the decades, Karen became an Icon in the homebuilding industry as a

leading residential merchandiser, furnishing interiors for model homes and resort communities across the country and around the world. She even wrote the book on model home merchandising and design used for many years by the homebuilding industry. Her London office provided her springboard to international projects in the UK and Middle East. Karen’s knack for creative promotion even brought future Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, into her orbit when Lady Thatcher agreed to participate in project openings at villages surrounding London. In 1989, following the death of her husband in an aircraft accident, Karen decided to move her home and headquarters from Palo Alto to Newport Beach. Her practice continued to flourish as she diversified into interior design for private residences, “trophy homes,” boutique hotels, country clubs, retail centers, corporate offices and resorts. In Newport Beach, Karen also married former homebuilder and graduate of USC’s School of Architecture, Richard King, who now works alongside Karen. Ric tells how he asked Karen whether she wanted to be the biggest or the best. “Both,” she answered. He explained being biggest meant she would need to spread herself too thin and to be best she would need to scale down to give every client her personal attention. And so she did.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 | 61


Designer Profile Karen’s motto is “exceeding every expectation.” To achieve this, she insists on direct involvement with her clients. “I thrive on client involvement because I gain inspiration from my clients that I use to create personalized environments to complement their individual taste and lifestyle,” she said. This inspiration translates into Karen’s innovative designs in a broad range of styles. Karen is often called upon to speak at industry or international conferences and contributes articles to trade and consumer publications. Used like an establishing shot in cinema, Karen often opens with the quip: “What do the Bat Mobile, Dirty Harry and Celine Dion have in common?” The answer is Karen. Karen and her firm furnished the Newport Coast home for the owner of the original Bat Mobile; provided interior design of the Carmel Valley home for Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry in the movies); and designed and furnished both the interiors of Celine Dion’s Lake Las Vegas home and her celebrity suite, a 2,360 square foot retreat buried below Caesar’s Palace on the Vegas Strip. Never content to be idle for a moment, Karen raised seven children while building her career. Three were born to her, two were adopted, and

two were foster children. With the children now grown and not content to enjoy success without giving back, she founded and continues to direct the charity OCWomen2Women. The members are “community-minded people who want to make a difference for underserved women in Orange County.” Members contribute financially each year and the funds are invested for those in need. Is she ready to retire after more than three decades in the field? “Never,” she answered. Every new commission is a unique challenge. She points to recent projects such as design of her “Sand Castles”, two equally unique beach-front homes in Laguna and Newport, as well as her involvement in design of a palace in Kurdish Iraq and her part in the design for Alkent, a resort community of luxury homes outside Istanbul, Turkey. Both, she says, are examples of projects that are both interesting and fun. CH www.karenbutera.com

Alice Ryan Miller Shifts To A More Casual Setting, Making Home And Memories In Montecito BY JENNIFER BLAISE KRAMER | PHOTOGRAPHY BY KARYN MILLET

POLISHED AND POISED, CHARMING AND CLEVER, Alice Ryan Miller entertains with an ease that’s as well traveled as herself. The English-born PR maven (who named her third child Barnes after the village she grew up in) spent several years of her career in London and then New York, before recently settling in Santa Barbara. While her sparkling client roster still spans coast to coast with brands and designers including Jeff Klein, Michael Aiduss, Ladurée, Bonpoint, Pottery Barn, and the Brentwood Country Mart, most weeks you’ll find her planning the golden state’s next noteworthy al fresco event. Likewise, her husband Kirk edged his bespoke tailoring business, Miller’s Oath, slightly more casual offering lighter, unlined “California construction” styled sportscoats for his new beach-minded clientele. When it comes to downtime for the couple and their three kids, it’s all about surfing, sunsets, and s’mores. At home on their eucalyptus-lined street in Montecito, they’ve mastered the art on easy get-togethers with new and old friends where the bar is self-serve and sandy feet are always welcome. “Our children go to the beach often, and spend a good deal of time in swimsuits. There is always some water fun happening in the garden, so the need to be a little more laid back about the interiors is a must,” she says. Having swapped winter coats for wetsuits, she now keeps many of the floors free of rugs to embrace the playful, post-beach traffic that runs

through. Windows have also lightened up with less treatments than they’re used to having, opting for more peeks of olive trees and allowing those early evening sun beams to pour in. “The light in California is so beautiful. I want it to come in through the windows in most every room of the house,” Alice says. “I used to have heavy English curtains, and lots of textured fabrics. It was a little more high maintenance. My desire for everything to be lighter and even more neutral is a definite shift in aesthetic.” Many nights friends gather at that golden hour for cocktails and simple appetizers in the living room while the kids run in the garden or pile into the garage-turned-playroom for movienight. Everything flows indoor-outdoor and the pace is much slower than their previous life—something that never gets old. “The sublime luxury of being outside all year round is such a departure from the our east coast lifestyle. I think back to New York City apartment living where the week nights were evenings out at restaurants or take-out at home,” Alice says. “We were lucky enough to have a little more outdoor time on weekends when we would head to the North Fork of Long Island, but somehow it was always rushed and without the joy of the Californian climate and surroundings.” CH

CHARMING STORYBOOK COTTAGE

located in the Winship Park neighborhood of Ross intrigued Marin designer Alison Pickart. Constructed in 1932 as a summer retreat from foggy San Francisco the two-story house remained untouched since the 1950’s. Pickart and her builder husband, Ken bought the property in 2011. They lovingly restored and remodeled the dated residence upgrading it to a 21st-century family home. Pickart is known for her ability to establish a fluid relationship between interior design and architecture. In addition to her own firm, she is Principal of Interior Design at Sutro Architects. Opening the cottage to the outside, she replaced the windows and doors to allow more, light while respecting the architectural style. Pickart painted the exterior a rich beige, Stony Ground from Farrow & Ball. To create a cohesive color scheme, she applied similar shades to

the strapping and window trim while she painted the front door persimmon. The interiors received the same treatment of strong neutrals with pops of bold color. On the first floor, Pickart reconfigured the rooms replacing the small service kitchen with a spacious double story one. With two children at home and two grown, this is the center of the house. An enthusiastic hostess Pickart exchanged the existing mid-century appliances for a Wolf stove, Sub Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher. The colors of the grey and white checkerboard marble floor repeat throughout the space. Pickart contrasted this with raspberry linen from Designers Guild slip covered on the counter stools. For more formal occasions friends and family congregate in the living or dining rooms. A Carrera marble mantle acts as the focal point of the living room. Across from the fireplace, Pickart placed an English styled sofa juxtaposed with a sleek coffee table from Amy Howard. The same eclectic mix continues in the dining room where Cantilevered Chairs by Mart Stam surround her husband’s heirloom pedestal dining table. Pickart added whimsical touches with a sea urchin pendant light and Ironies’ Honeycomb Sculpted Resin Console. Beyond the dining room, an outdoor cobblestone fireplace provides an inviting area for al fresco parties. Being able to share their completed home with others was essential for Pickart and her family. “Having a ‘gathering place’ where all of the people in our life would feel comfortable was important for us. We love to hang out and entertain friends and family in significant ways and in small.” she says. CH

IVING HERE IS LIKE LIVING IN A RES ORT,” S AYS RUSTY

PULLIAM, Principal/CEO of Pulliam Properties, Inc. in Asheville, North Carolina. “I fell in love with the house’s location as soon as I saw it. It was so different from North Carolina.” Although Pulliam will always have a home in North Carolina since his family has been there for four generations, he needed a change from his hectic life as a commercial real estate developer. “I was thinking about slowing down and Newport Coast is the perfect place to do that,” he says. “I came to Southern California for the first time in 2002 and loved the area. I came back every year on vacation and then decided this is where I wanted to spend the latter part of my life. I found the exact property I wanted in July 2014,” he continues. He bought this property and started an over-two-year renovation plan. “I bought the house immediately because of the view which takes in everything up and down and coast. I completely redid the house to my taste though.” Pulliam worked with John M. Garcia of JMG Architects who did some of the interior architectural elements and Frank Stoltz of South Coast Architects in Newport Beach who did the exterior. “I wanted an Italian Tuscan look for the exterior and a teal blue color palette for the interior design with a modern/transitional look. It’s all completely different from my house in Asheville.” For the interior design of his ideal house, Pulliam used Linda Burnside of LGB Interiors in Columbia, South Carolina. “She did my house in Asheville in 2003 so she knew my taste and style,” Pulliam says. “I trusted her completely.”

landscape to use as many drought-resistant plants as possible. The roof is three color blend of brown, taupe and tan.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 | 85


“We literally started with the art work,” remembers Burnside. “Rusty was involved in the creation of this house every step of the way.” All the artwork was commissioned by LGB Interiors after many meetings with artists to discuss the color, subject, size and materials of each individual piece. The paintings’ blue and teal colors pull the outside in which was important to Pulliam. Since Burnside is based in South Carolina, she hired Newport Beach interior designer Jennifer Mehditash of Mehditash Design to be her project manager. “She was an integral part of the team,” says Burnside. “We couldn’t have done it without her.” This was Burnside’s first project in Southern California, although her work takes her all over the world. Some of the elements that Burnside had to deal with that were different from those in the South were curved walls which she found both challenging and rewarding. Since this was an extensive remodel, rooms like the kitchen had to be completely refigured. Pulliam’s experience as a developer made him especially sensitive to the use of space both inside and out. The house is relatively small for Newport Coast, around 7,000 square feet on a .33 acre lot. Still Pulliam and his team were able to

maximize the area to its full potential so that there were expansive views from almost every room. “The team had outstanding talent and all worked together in perfect harmony,” he says. Pulliam and Burnside made two trips to High Point in North Carolina to pick out furnishings for the house, although many pieces were custom designed. They’re particularly proud of the dining room chandelier that they commissioned glass designer Seth Parks of Seth Parks Designs in Murrieta, California, to create in shades of blue resembling a school of dolphins. Mark Scott of Mark Scott Associates did the exterior landscaping. They did it so well that the project won HGTV’s 2018 ultimate picturesque landscape award for the infinity pool and surrounds. And quite a pool it is. Pulliam and Burnside found steel-blue glass tiles that took six months to lay. The effect is spectacular. “It has a shimmery reflection,” says Scott. “We oriented the landscaping to get full advantage of the ocean view.” The exterior has many areas for just relaxing and enjoying the views, especially in the custom-deigned pergola with a outdoor kitchen and fire pit lounge area. “There is nothing better than in the evening sitting outside with a glass of wine watching the magical sunsets that happen almost daily here and reflecting on one’s blessings and the wonder of God’s beautiful creation,” says Pulliam about his dream house on the Coast.

T I N E K E T R I G G S ’ clients—a couple in their 30s with two young children—a San Francisco pied-à-terre offers a counterpoint to their suburban dailiness, including an aesthetic departure from their primary residence. Six years ago, Triggs was enlisted for that house, a decidedly traditional abode located just south of the city. This time around, the directive entailed conjuring a modern getaway. “I wanted it to feel like you’re at a beautiful hotel, but be cozy enough so that you don’t feel like you can’t touch anything,” says Triggs, proprietor of Artistic Designs for Living (adlsf.com). The 1,600-square-foot condo is used as a staycation spot for the family (the Exploratorium, a hands-on museum that is a favorite with kids and grown-ups alike, is within walking distance); a crash pad for the husband after an especially long workday (his office is in the Financial District); and a venue for out-of-town visitors (mainly the wife’s mother, who splits her time between Los Angeles and Hong Kong). Since the unit’s expanses of glass allow for spectacular views of the bay, Triggs infused the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with a palette evocative of the scenery. Textiles in shades of blue swathe the custom sofa and a pair of swivel chairs, while the rug is done in watery hues as well. The curves of the space—situated on the 36th floor of a Rincon Hill high-rise with rounded corners and cylindrical columns—are echoed in the silhouettes of the dining table, sofa, and accent tables. Providing a linear balance is the contemporary kitchen, outfitted with cabinetry in a grey-washed finish and a crisp white island. In one of the residence’s two bedrooms, a bold wallpaper serves as a painterly backdrop for a deftly arranged mix of materials: a channeled headboard from Room & Board, HC28 wood bedside tables with a lacquered drawer, and Bestlite brass sconces. Blush pink details—such as the lumbar pillow, welts bordering the

shams, and tasseled bedspread—lend a softness to the decor. Triggs judiciously distributed punches of color. Take the powder room’s large-scale fuchsia floral wallcovering that she had vinylized, and the deep teal faux croc upholstery on the vintage dining chairs. Both are as low-maintenance as they are stylish, perfectly suiting the home’s occupants. “I love design; I love looking at new things and creating beauty,” says Triggs. “What’s super rewarding and most important, though, is creating a place for the family and for them to be happy about the outcome. That’s why designers do what we do—to make the clients happy.” CH

I

N RENOVATING HIS HOLLYWOOD HILLS-AREA HOME, JOHN DE BASTIANI was faced with a few unique challenges. It needed to be a

place where he could work effectively, take meetings, entertain, sleep, eat, cook and relax - and all within what is essentially an open area of no more than 700 square feet. “When you do a small space, you can’t just throw anything in it,” said De Bastiani. “You have to be conscious of scale and proportions.” The noted Los Angeles interior designer had moved into the home– it essentially once served as the artist’s studio of a old Spanish house - four years ago, drawn to the vaulted ceilings and details like Juliet balconies. Despite it starting to look like it could do with a makeover a couple of years ago, he held off pending plans to move to New York. When that didn’t happen, he decided to “pull the plug; I wanted to do it in a way that if I found something that I completely loved, I could bring it here and it would work in the space,” he said. Moreover, he wanted the end result of the renovation project - which took about six weeks - to not “reek” of a particular style. “I wanted it to have its own character, but also be a neutral base,” he said. “So if I found a wonderful mid-century piece of pottery, or some modern art, I could put it in the living room and everything would work together.” The living room, demarcated from the bedroom by a large fireplace, has a rich teal blue crushed velvet sofa opposite a pair of chairs covered in a striped cranberry red fabric, which De Bastiani said he surprised himself by choosing. “I’m not a big red person, and tend to like muted colors. But I loved this color, it’s very pretty, especially with the kind of organic, ethnic stripe.” The coffee table is made from an aged copper. Other intriguing pieces include a table, elaborate and beautifully textured, made from a tree root that can’t be harvested anymore. He also customized pieces like small tables made of

walnut featuring slender pull-out drawers and brought in items like a wicker chair, cozily situated by the fireplace, with a fluffy sheepskin throw over it. In some ways, said De Bastiani, his personal space reflects his New England sensibility; the Massachusettsborn designer lived in Boston before moving to Los Angeles 11 years ago, and is currently working on projects including a 5,000 square foot Los Feliz Spanish bungalow. “Even when I am working on a contemporary project, I tend to have more of a traditional approach,” said De Bastiani, conceding that he is known for “using lots of blue.” “I like clean, organized spaces, but also spaces that feel like they’ve been lived in and that don’t look like showrooms,” he said.

102 | CALIFORNIA HOMES

And although designing a personal space can be more challenging than creating one on behalf of a client, De Bastiani said he needed to focus on what was going to make him the most comfortable. “It is a challenge, because people are going to come over and judge it, no matter what. So you want it to look good, but you also want to do something unique and daring that maybe your clients wouldn’t go for.” The experience was also, he said, a powerful lesson in objectivity. “Very often, clients look at a space very differently than I do,” he said. “I can understand the limitations of it. They will show me pictures and say they want their house to look like that, but that’s not their house and it’s never going to look like that. Instead, as a designer, it’s very important to look at a space and ask, ‘’what can this space give me?’’ CH

of a 3000-square-foot Malibu beach house, while inside the interiors of this 1950s remodel take their inspiration from the Southern California town’s laidback vibe. To create this environment, the owner called upon interior designer Chad Eisner, Principal of C.W. Eisner, Inc. based in Santa Monica, and Venice architect Severine Tatangelo of Studio PCH to conceive the layout of the space. Eisner then enlisted architect David Montalba of Montalba Architects of Santa Monica to oversee the structural and construction elements, with George Pepper of Fort Hill Construction to execute the construction supervision. Together the team created the ideal beach house getaway that the owner was looking for. Eisner, whose projects have taken him around the globe since establishing his firm in 2005, drew upon his experience from working with the owners on multiple past projects to hone in on just what was needed to complete the space. The majority of the interior surfaces are wood, and this allows for a rich, textural backdrop to create warm and inviting areas for enjoying the breathtaking views of the Pacific. Eisner chose to add more subtle depth to the wood paneling on the walls by having them wire brushed while keeping the ceiling a smooth satin finish to echo the luster of ocean waves outside. Bleached white floors and fossilized Texas shell stone hearths were selected to complete the look. “There are unifying elements NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 | 107

carried throughout the house. My clients didn’t want a big statement. They wanted this to be a state-of-mind destination, not an aesthetic one,” says Eisner. The bulk of the furniture was custom designed by Eisner so that it would maximize the home’s smaller spaces. “I’m a big believer in a balanced sense of scale,” he says. Deep, down-filled sofas covered in nubby linen and thick pile woven rugs play against the natural color palette just outside the sliding doors. Shades of sand were selected for the interior’s el-ements, but well played against moments of modern brushed nickel to provide balance. Eisner incorporated a dramatic walnut George Nakashima dining table to ground the space, and paired it with a modern light fixture with a natural linen shade to provide a soft glow. Eisner adds, “You always need to provide a little push and pull with interiors.” To add the final layer to the space, art was chosen that reflects the home’s approach. The clients, avid art collectors, tasked Eisner with incorporating pieces already in their collec-tion, like a pair of Calder tapestries from the mid-1970s, as well as sourcing contemporary works by California artist John Baldessari. The result is a playful, art-filled house that in no way resembles an art gallery. “My clients didn’t want a show house. This is a place where you come to relax and recharge,” says Eisner. “No space is off limits.” CH www.cweisner.com NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 | 111

The English Cotswolds Are Replete With Timeless Beauty BY KATHY BRYANT

village seems like the perfect place to live or, at least, visit. Rows of picturesque stone buildings, rolling limestone hills, a welcoming pub and perhaps an ancient church are images woven into our minds thanks to numerous television shows and movies. However, not every Cotswolds village has it all. One such is Broadway with its village shops and mellow stone-and-thatch cottages dating from the 17th and 18th centuries clustered around a village green. The street through Broadway was the main road from Wales to Worchester to London during Elizabethan times and it was a wide street, hence the village’s name. We stayed at the centrally located Lygon Arms hotel which has roots dating from the 1300s. There are 78 rooms and six suites and even a thatched cottage on its three-acre grounds. Some rooms date back to 1532 when it was predominately a Tudor coaching inn. Oliver

Cromwell stayed here in 1651 and his opponent Charles I meet his supporters here. With fires roaring in the log-burning 17th century fireplaces, beamed ceilings, and ancient block stone floors that have seen centuries of visitors walking on them, the hotel is the perfect place to feel history in the Cotswolds. In fact I almost got chills thinking of all the people who had stayed here through the centuries. Today old meets new because millions of pounds have been spent to upgrade the hotel and add modern suites and a garden court. There is also a spa with a 13-meter indoor swimming pool with a retractable roof. Our room, which we arrived at by a circuitous route of up and down short stairways, looked out over the main street where it seemed as if it could have been the 18th century except for the cars going by. In fact, it was the automobile that turned the Lygon Arms into a destination, not just a stop along the way. King Edward VII motored to the hotel in 1905, as did his grandson, the future King Edward VIII. In 1963 Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton stayed here. Other luminaries include Prince Phillip and Michael Redgrave, among others. The hotel’s guestbook is still in use and it’s fun to see all the famous names there. The Lygon Bar & Grill is in the great hall built in the 17th century. We enjoyed full English breakfasts there. For dinner I loved the grilled octopus, fennel salad with a citrus dressing while my friend had a beet, quinoa and walnut salad. For dinner I enjoyed fish and chips while she had sea bass. The local cheese plate is not to be missed. However, the joy of eating here is not only the food, but also the atmosphere. We could look through the mullioned windows to the stone buildings outside, check out the antique paintings on the walls or sneak peeks at local Cotswolds people who looked as if they had been horseback riding all day on their estates and were now relaxing. It’s no wonder that this area 80 minutes from London is referred to sometimes as Poshtershire. (Broadway is in Worcestershire.)

Travel Broadway has more sights than many villages. High on an ancient beacon site above the village is Broadway Tower, built for the Earl of Coventry in 1798 and designed by Capability Brown. The Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, located in a 17th century building, gets special touring exhibitions from the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. We particularly enjoyed the Gordon Russell Design Museum which celebrates this 20th century furniture designer. Following the museum visit, we had a light lunch at Russell’s of Broadway. Gordon Russell’s furniture is found throughout the Lygon Arms and much of it was made at the back of the hotel. Broadway has a strong American art connection. In the 1880s a group of Americans formed the Broadway Colony. Started by American artists Francis Davis Millet and his wife Lily, the group included John Singer Sargent who painted Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose (1885) here. Photographer Karyn Millet, the great-great-grand niece of Francis D. Millet recently went on a discovery voyage to visit spots her illustrious relative had been. “It was in their houses where festivities took place and people like Sargent and Mark Twain visited,” says Millet. “Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose was a turning point for Sargent. He saw my great-great uncle’s daughter Kate lighting lanterns one evening at the Millet’s Farnham House and had to paint

them.” The painting is now at the Tate Britain and is considered a national treasure. Situated behind Broadway’s village green is the Crown and Trumpet Inn, a 17th century pub where we enjoyed a bit of a spin on the traditional meal of bangers and mash since the sausages were made of venison. They were delicious on a cool evening. A visit to a traditional pub is a must for a visit to the Cotswolds as is a tour of a stately mansion. We chose the 15th-century Sudeley Castle, which may be on the site of a 12th-century castle. About 30 minutes from Broadway, the castle sits on 1200 acres and has award-winning gardens. Sudeley Castle is the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds, Katherine Parr, the last of Henry VIII’s six wives. She’s entombed in a beautiful 15th-century church which is open to the public. There is so much to do in Broadway including hiking and horseback riding, but perhaps the most memorable things to do are just to walk around, browse the mall (about 10 small shops), visit the flower and vegetable markets, have a drink overlooking the village green and talk to local residents. That is the perfect way to savor the Cotswolds experience.
