A true revolution does not spin in a circle. It spins in a square. Since 1929, the dishwasher as we know it has featured a circular sprayer trying to clean the inside of a square box. Which means that the corners, and everything near them, never get a thorough, powerful cleaning. Until today. Introducing CornerIntense®, the first spray arm to thoroughly reach every part of the dishwasher, including the corners. And that’s just one of the new innovative technologies you’ll find in our 2022 dishwasher lineup. Please visit us at beko.com/us-en/new-dishwashers for more information. The revolution in dishwashing has begun.

EDITOR’S LETTER

Planning Ahead Editing, writing, working on layouts, producing photo shoots: These are things that come with the job, no question. But more difficult to articulate is the importance of planning ahead, something I’ve learned a lot about during my 12 years at the helm of HC&G and 10 at NYC&G. Each September, before the leaves turn and autumn truncates the sun’s rays, I scramble to line up shoots for inventory the following year. If I produce a story on a house that has been photographed in winter, then I know it won’t play in June or July. If I want to publish a home with holiday-themed decor, then I’ll need to find a source for boughs and garlands in August. Some interiors just have a wintry feel, with dark wood and roaring fireplaces and casement windows, and others are bright and white and filled with summery light. ■ I think I’ve got it down now, although the same can’t always be said of my private life. I’m fairly organized, but it’s still a race to the finish at tax time each April. I needed a “tux upgrade” for a friend’s recent big-birthday party, so why did I wait till the last minute to find a new suit? And earlier this spring, I had every intention of planting grape hyacinth bulbs in my window boxes in the city, but they just sat there in a brown bag until it was virtually too late. So I’m determined to get ready for dahlia season in my garden in August. I’m particularly smitten with the ‘Collarette’ variety, which I saw in Paris and keep a photograph of on my phone. I think they’ll look smashing, as long as I stick to the plan. Happy summer!

Summer Love ‘Collarette’ dahlias will be an integral part of my garden in a couple of months—if all goes according to plan.

ARCHITECTS

LETTER FROM THE CEO

20 Years x 20 Century! Why did it take so long for an affluent and influential community like the Hamptons to inspire a magazine like HC&G? “It was just waiting to happen,” its founder explained upon the premiere issue’s debut in 2002. I remember the buzz around the launch, when a frisson ran through the East End and New York’s publishing and design circles about the new title showcasing spectacular “cottages” and gardens in the Hamptons, not to mention real estate—then and now the number one topic of conversation around local dinner tables. The latter was the inspiration for our iconic “Deed & Don’ts” column, which has expanded in the years since to include a daily scoop of real estate news on dailyDeeds.com®. ■ Glossy and oversize, that first issue immediately stood out, with stunning photography and inspirational reporting— something that hasn’t changed since. For the past 20 years, HC&G has continued to deliver on its promise to provide the finest design editorial to one of America’s most affluent communities, a formula that its younger sister magazines, CTC&G and NYC&G, have employed to great effect in Connecticut and metropolitan and suburban New York. ■ From the outset, we produced, co-founded, and sponsored showhouses and all manner of home and garden tours to bring our pages to life. And for our 20th, we have added HC&G’s 20th Century Modern House Tour with Hamptons 20 Century Modern (H20CM). Featuring five striking modernist homes built during the late 20th century, the tour benefits H20CM, a nonprofit that supports local and state organizations working to preserve important contemporary architecture. Curated by H20CM’s founder, interior designer Timothy Godbold, it will take place on Sunday, August 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; for tickets and more information, go to cottagesgardens.com/20CModernhousetour. ■ None of this would have been possible without the passion and dedication of the HC&G team, led by Editorial Director Kendell Cronstrom and Publisher Pamela Eldridge, who came on board after I bought this company 13 years ago. They have my admiration and undying gratitude.

Modern Gems All houses on our upcoming modernist house tour feature sumptuous black façades and lots of shimmery glass.

HOLLIS PUIG

A graduate of Parsons School of Design, decorator Hollis Puig was also “homeschooled” in the interiors world by her late mother, Barbara Atkins Puig, who “introduced me at a young age to antiques shows, art exhibitions, and designer showhouses, in addition to allowing me to tag along whenever she went to the D&D Building to source fabrics.” In this issue’s “Loving Legacy” (page 88), Puig writes about her close relationship with her mother and their collaboration on the decoration of a new family home in upstate New York.

R=104 G=102 B=99

FR ANCIS NICDAO

Born in the Philippines, Francis Nicdao moved to Long Island at age 12 and later studied at Pratt, where he received a BFA in interior design. His love for decorating, he says, stems from “working with clients to create spaces that elevate their vision—every client has unique wants and needs.” Turn to this issue’s “Heart of Glass” (page 72) to see how Nicdao, the principal of the New York design firm Pembrooke & Ives, took on the decoration of a massive 20,000-square-foot home in Southampton’s estate section.

MICHAEL DEL PIERO

In this issue’s “Modern Romance” (page 108), interior designer Michael Del Piero sets her sights on a new build in Bridgehampton. “My passion for the beauty of the Hamptons dates from my first visit 35 years ago,” Del Piero recounts, “and that beauty hasn’t changed one bit. Having the opportunity to decorate a home here is a true privilege.” Del Piero also helms a home accessories shop in Wainscott, “where it has been so fun to get to know design professionals from all over the country.” —Shannon Assenza

(Syringa reticulata) Zones: 3–7; height: 20–30 feet This gorgeous lilac blooms in June, a bit later than most other species, and can even be used as a street tree. It’s known for its interesting bark, attractive trusses of soft ivory-colored flowers, and wonderful, far-reaching scent.

3. SENSATION LILAC

(Syringa vulgaris ‘Sensation’) Zones: 4–7; height: 10–15 feet Sensation lives up to its name, with a prominent perfume and extra-large trusses of deep-pink blossoms demarcated by a fine white line.

yet harmless mildew, so don’t plant it in the most visible spot in your garden, and make sure it has enough room to breathe.

TIPS

5. MADAME LEMOINE LILAC

• Propagate from softwood cuttings in the early summer.

(Syringa vulgaris ‘Madame Lemoine’) Zones: 4–7; height: 8–10 feet A bit of an oxymoron color-wise, this bright-white lilac with double flowers is a popular choice for white gardens. Known for its heady scent, it’s named for the wife of Victor Lemoine, a celebrated French lilac breeder.

• Avoid pruning. Instead, cut the blossoms for arrangements and deadhead the shrub immediately after it finishes flowering. • To extend lilacs’ vase life, cut them in the early morning, plunge the bottom 10 percent of the stem in boiling water for 30 seconds, and then place in a bucket of cold water until ready to arrange.

6. MISS KIM KOREAN LILAC

(Syringa pubescens subsp. patula ‘Miss Kim’) Zones: 3–8; height: 4–9 feet Compact and refined, Miss Kim (a.k.a. Manchurian lilac) doesn’t get leggy and is ideal in a tight corner, a shrub border, or a hedge. Its petite leaves take on a burgundy tinge in the fall.

T

he “lost wax” method, a metal-arts technique favored by sculptors for millennia, involves many painstaking, intricate steps—a process that’s familiar to Scott Baxter, a former tech engineer turned foundry owner. While he was designing doorknobs, latches, and other hardware for his own home, Baxter decided to build a foundry “from the ground up, because I found that the industry was lacking creativity due to limitations in manufacturing.” SA Baxter, his high-end hardware company, is now highly sought after by decorators and architects sourcing the perfect finishing touches for projects worldwide. But Baxter isn’t one to rest on his laurels. At the foundry, in upstate Chester, New York, he has recently embarked on producing a line of refillable bronze-vessel candles, called Scott Alexander Scents, inspired by his travels around the world. At the start, he and his team designed 34 vessels from 100 concepts, “10 of which are in the market today,” says Baxter, who is also an avid collector of bronze sculpture. “With the capability of the foundry, we were able to take the candles to a higher level.” Each candle begins with a digitally designed metal mold into which molten wax is poured to create a hollow copy of the end result. Once the form is removed from the mold and dried, wax cylinder “feet” are melted to the bottom of the vessel and then attached to a treelike structure which allows molten bronze to flow through via a ceramic cup affixed to the top. “Bronze is popular with sculptors because it pours and casts well,” Baxter comments, “and although it’s more expensive than other steels and alloys, it’s completely recyclable.” The attached wax copies are dipped into a ceramic slurry, then a sand-like stucco, and left to dry, after which they are placed cup-down in a kiln, which hardens the coatings into a shell and melts away the wax, hence the name “lost wax.” Next, molten bronze is carefully poured into the reheated shells by skilled workers in fire suits and then allowed to cool. The rough casting is revealed after being hammered away (its “feet” are removed

with a lathe), and then it is sent for dipping and polishing. “Only 10 percent of our workers can polish the pieces without damaging them,” says Baxter. “It takes good old-fashioned practice and steady hands. Every stage is craftmanship.” For the fragrances, Baxter sought out the best French noses in the business, with a mission of avoiding “overpowering, perfumy smells that most people wouldn’t want in their homes.” A library of 300 scents ranging from wood to amber is now used for the sustainable, coconut-oil-based candles. The Out of Africa candle, for example, has notes of oud, whereas the Art Deco–inspired New York candle sports a scent “reminiscent of private clubs and dark lounges with a whiskey flavor in the air.” Even the wicks—flat, tightly woven cotton braid sourced in Germany—have been deeply considered. “It took almost six months to get three different sizes of candles wicked properly,” Baxter recounts, “since every time you change the fragrance oil, it impacts the burn as well as the size and shape of the wick. Everything about this process is a science.” —Doug Young

Canal Plus Development in Brooklyn’s Gowanus is booming while its namesake canal is being cleaned up as part of a decade-long environmental improvement project.

FAST-MOVING MARKETS

After a period of decline at the beginning of the pandemic, the New York real estate market has done a 180, thanks to people returning in droves now that city life has regained a sense of normalcy once again. In Manhattan, the median rental price surged 23.5 percent from February 2021 to this past February, reaching $3,700, while rental inventory tumbled by 81.1 percent over the same period, according to appraisal firm Miller Samuel. Sales volume in Manhattan also rose, increasing 45.9 percent from the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same time this year. During this period, the median sale price jumped 10.7 percent, to $1.19 million, and inventory fell 4.4 percent. “Lack of inventory is leading to bidding wars and over-ask deals, which will drive up prices further,” says broker Mike Fabbri of Nest Seekers. A similar scenario is playing out in Brooklyn, where the median rental price climbed 10.5 percent from last February 2021 to February 2022, hitting $2,900. Meanwhile, rental inventory plunged 85 percent. Within this time frame, sales volume increased 19.4 percent, and the median sale price rose 7.5 percent, to $941,000. The flurry of activity that began at the start of the pandemic in the Hamptons and Long Island and upstate in Westchester and

Dutchess counties remains steady—though sharp drops in inventory curtailed the number of sales and put more upward pressure on prices. In the Hamptons, listing inventory of single-family homes sank by 54.4 percent and the median sale price rose 3.5 percent, to $1.5 million, while the number of sales dropped 39.2 percent in the fourth quarter 2021 over the same period the prior year. “It’s still incredibly busy from Southampton to Montauk,” says broker Justin Agnello of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “We currently have half a dozen listings in the $7 million to $12 million range that we’re showing constantly, those under $4 million sell within a weekend, and a $2 million listing recently received a full-price offer the day it hit the market. There’s just not enough inventory for the number of buyers.” On Long Island overall, listing inventory for singlefamily homes dropped 34.5 percent from the fourth quarter of 2020 to the fourth quarter of 2021, the median sale price rose 9.8 percent, to $590,000, and the number of sales dipped 16.1 percent. At the same time in Westchester and Dutchess counties, listing inventory for singlefamily homes decreased 27.2 percent and the median sale price increased 8.3 percent. Even with persistent inflation, hikes in mortgage interest rates, and volatility in the financial markets anticipated in the months ahead, brokers remain optimistic that activity will remain robust—especially in the higher

BEFORE THEY WERE BROKERS: PHILIP TABOR As an actor, Palo Alto, California, native Philip Tabor had a successful run, working off Broadway as well as in television and film (silver-screen appearances include The Golden Bowl and Le Divorce). But in 2005, the New York−based actor decided to try his hand at real estate, working for Douglas Elliman Real Estate and now the Corcoran Group. “As an actor, I was able to travel around the world and work with some amazing artists, but there was a lot of heartbreak, too,” says Tabor. “While I was growing up, everyone around me was involved in real estate development and sales, and today I love working in real estate as much as acting.

didn’t encompass its entire coastline. The hope is that the newly created Waterfront Zoning Overlay District will help retain the coastline’s historic character by controlling overdevelopment. According to Mayor Jim Larocca, the original plan left out about 50 percent of the docks and marinas in the village. New regulations include capping most new structures at two stories (or three, if a developer provides public amenities such as waterfront access) and limiting the number of buildings that exceed 3,500 square feet. In fact, the Village Board will now weigh in on structures of more than 3,500 square feet, which it hadn’t done previously, adding yet another step to the approvals process. “We are attempting to clarify our community aspirations and protect and nourish the waterfront as an essential part of who we are,” Larocca says. Tom Clavin, secretary of the advocacy group Save Sag Harbor, adds that the village was overdue for a more comprehensive plan, noting the unprecedented development pressure in recent years—including on the waterfront, where small summer cottages built in the 1950s and ’60s have been eyed as prime real estate. He also cites the new four-level waterfront condos at 2 West Water Street, which are selling for $21 million, as “a wakeup call to the board, since the project made it through the former regulatory process. No one wants to see Sag Harbor turn into another Coney Island.” —Liza N. Burby

THROWBACK / SUMMER RC Atlee predicts a return to traditional ‘pre-pan’ summer values, but will prices go retro, too?

G

et ready to throw it down and throw it back, because Summer 2022 is all about reconnecting and enjoying a world that looks more like it did before 2020 cramped your style. “There has been so much influx and activity in the Hamptons in the last two years,” says R.C. Atlee. “Now, people are beginning to map out a summer social calendar that showcases the homes they’ve acquired, and their newly completed renovations.” Plus, they can entertain the masses without as much worry about consequences (we hope). With so many transplants and summer residents returning, the guest lists are brimming and bubbling over like fondue pots. While social life in the Hamptons seems to be returning to its decadent and debaucherous roots, the real estate market has not shown signs of returning to the old days - back when a million dollars could make you comfortable somewhere on the East End. RC says it’s as competitive for buyers as it was at the height of the pandemic. “I just saw a house that was listed in 2018 - that did not sell at the time - ask 15% more and then go for 15% over ask.” Lucky sellers held out and got a payout beyond what they could’ve imagined a few years ago! RC has been selling real estate on the East End since 2015, and for almost a decade before that on Philadelphia’s Main Line. He has seen the market boom and bust once before; “I worked for builders before 2008, when we sold new construction luxury homes like candy. I remember a veteran Sotheby’s agent saying to me that I would learn how to do my job for real in a down market, and he was right.” True luxury is worth every penny. However, “people are getting tired of hearing about fabulous prices for not-so-fabulous homes,” says RC. A glance at recent sales will show some exceptional properties trading, along with plenty of less remarkable properties that barely hit the market before they go under contract. “Some buyers are exhausted, some are doubling their agressive approach, and other buyers are getting poised for when the market shifts.” When will that shift occur? RC says it’s hard to calculate, but change is in the wind. “The rental market - both traditional summer rentals and the unprecedented year-round rental market that emerged during the pandemic - has softened, which was inevitable. I think that’s a logical impetus for some homeowners to consider selling versus carrying the costs of their properties.” Especially those who purchased at a premium, made improvements, and projected inflated rental income as a part of the ongoing financial future of holding onto a home. “I always tell my buyers that if you need rental income to make a purchase work, you’re making an uncomfortable purchase. Any agent who has worked through a slow rental market out East has fielded the frantic calls of landlords who must rent, and I wouldn’t wish it on a friend,” he says. So, the only ray of hope that more inventory emerges and prices begin to flatten or drop in the Hamptons? A slow rental season that compels some homeowner to list your dream home... and in that case, you’d better enlist a sharp agent and be ready to make an offer.

he most abundant “building material” employed in the Southampton home featured on these pages is one that neither its architect nor its interior designer could purchase, only harness. “Light,” says its builder and co-designer, SBP Homes’ Jim Hoffman, “is what energizes this house. When you walk inside, you immediately face an 80-foot expanse of glass—and can’t help but be drawn to the landscape that surrounds

the property. Art is what the homeowners collect and value, but glass and windows were even more important to them.” The residence’s interior designer, Francis Nicdao, chief creative officer of Pembrooke & Ives, adds, “It was about getting as much glazing in place as possible, creating a sense of airiness and light everywhere.” In the rear of the house, virtually the entire elevation opens to the outdoors, yet remains sheltered from it via roll-down screens. This vantage point offers unimpeded views of the

property, sumptuously and subtly designed by landscape architect Mario Nievera. Both Nicdao and Hoffman have created prior residences for the clients, so the two men easily anticipated how the family wanted the house to take shape. “Our clients are very trusting people and definitely have a vision,” says Nicdao. “They don’t require many meetings.” Although Pembrooke & Ives is not an architectural firm, Nicdao had a say in both the home’s exterior and interior architecture. “We always say we’re not architects,” he says with a smile, “but we know enough about architecture to be dangerous.” The collaboration with Hoffman was anything but dangerous, but at 10 bedrooms and 20,000 square feet, the house is just short of daunting. Because the rooms are large and the ceilings high, Nicdao found it necessary to customize many of the furnishings. “The most successful aspect of our work on this project,” he says, “is our having properly responded to the home’s sense of scale.” 79


“THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ASPECT OF OUR WORK ON THIS PROJECT,” SAYS INTERIOR DESIGNER FRANCIS NICDAO, “IS OUR HAVING PROPERLY RESPONDED TO THE HOME’S SENSE OF SCALE” Fittingly enough (no pun intended), every table, sofa, and armchair is perfectly tailored to its space. In the dining room, which soars a story and a half high, Nicdao clad the ceiling with white-oak boards that “warm up the room and visually make it more intimate.” He also designed a custom table of bleached walnut with inlaid stainless steel—so massive it makes one think of an airport runway. Hanging above, domed lighting fixtures loom appropriately large, accessorized with metal gear-like embellishments. “The immediate family of five usually becomes a family of 15 on any given weekend,” Hoffman notes of the amply proportioned environs. Nicdao is adept at playing with lighting fixtures for a little interior bling, notably in the entry, where an enormous chandelier with smoked-glass cylinders commands attention. (“I think of lighting fixtures as the jewelry of a room,” he says.) Throughout the home, the designer maintained a neutral palette, applying decorative plaster to monochromatic walls that make the clients’ art collection shine. “We presented the finished interiors to our clients in one big reveal,” the designer recalls, “but because art is both an investment and a passion for them, they’re always acquiring new pieces, which means that we’re still making changes to accommodate them. This house is one that’s ever evolving.” ✹ 80

A

seasoned interior designer, Kati Curtis understands Manhattan’s most basic form: the white box. No matter a building’s pedigree—whether new or old construction, Beaux-Arts or mid-20th-century modern—Curtis says, apartments are “presented and delivered to the buyer as white boxes. That’s what you’ll find inside.” The former New York Life Insurance headquarters, completed in 1899 by McKim, Mead & White, is one of Tribeca’s most architecturally rich buildings, topped off with a clocktower, graced with a parapet ringed by sculptural eagles, and boasting an entrance lined with a forest of Corinthian columns. But inside? It’s a warren of white boxes, including the two-bedroom residence featured on these pages, newly transformed by Curtis’s deft hand.

“The apartment doesn’t receive much light, and when you look out the windows, you see into another building,” says Curtis, whose first task was to brighten the rooms and establish a sense of scale with the generous 10-foot ceiling heights. “Since there were no spectacular views, I decided the best vistas would be those featured on the wallpaper.” For her client’s primary bedroom, Curtis chose a de Gournay design depicting wisteria blossoms seemingly blooming from the ceiling, with branches appearing to grow across the walls near the floor. “The paper immediately makes the room cozier, and its reflective quality makes natural light bounce around.” Curtis calls her idea to position antique mirrored panels behind the bed “a no-brainer solution” for visually expanding the square footage of the room—too may/june 2022

small to hold a king-size mattress. The challenge, she says, came with “putting a mirror there without it looking like something out of Vegas.” Her gamble on a gridwork of mirrored segments extending above the headboard paid off, as it gives the space a Manhattan glamour that you’d never find on the Strip. Although Curtis is known for her passion for color and pattern, her client skews to a more monochromatic palette. “We reached a healthy balance between her desire for a neutral look and mine for something colorful,” the designer recounts. Among the apartment’s most dramatic gestures is its unique tray ceilings. The building’s patinated copper dome served as inspiration for this interior detail, achieved with the help of decorative painter Jonathan Kutzin, who fashioned a faux finish within the coved tray. Depending on the time of day, it appears to transform from copper to teal. Additionally, Curtis says, “I used a strié-like finish on the white walls to give them a complementary texture and interest.” Curtis, who maintains offices in Manhattan and Los Angeles, began

working for her client 15 years ago, designing the first apartment the client shared with her then-husband, and later a beach house and other properties. “I’ve worked with her for so long and I know her so well, and she knows me so well, that I am fortunate enough to have carte blanche with any project we’re working on,” Curtis reports. “She trusted us to make the right decisions and to make her new home in the city beautiful.” Their collaboration is now so seamless, Curtis adds, that the design scheme was established in one meeting, which included the contractor. “We laid out the details and samples on the kitchen island and didn’t miss a beat.” Typically, Curtis and her team will present a finished project to a client in a single reveal, accompanied by a Champagne toast, but COVID prevented such a ceremony in this instance. Instead, the designer recalls, “We waited for her text.” Curtis still rereads the message on her phone today: “I don’t have the words to describe my bedroom—I am over the moon!” To which Curtis texted back, “You deserve the most special place for your new life.” ✹ may/june 2022

over the course of 30 years, or to set out on a new adventure. When I broached the topic of downsizing, she scoffed at the idea, claiming to “know every home in this town” (Loudonville, New York, just outside Albany). In her 64 years, she had hardly known any other Zip Code. Despite her conviction, I was certain that there was something out there for us, and a deep dive on Zillow turned up the ideal diamond in the rough: a brick home with a circular driveway and a long private drive—the three things she had always wanted most, before she put her heart and soul into our rambling white Cape.

Unassuming and dated-looking, the property had been languishing on the MLS for months, but to me, it was as if it had just been patiently sitting there, waiting for us to come in and save it. Within a week, Turner Lane was ours. While it was being taken down to the studs, my beloved Barbie (as I affectionately called my mother) and I were bursting at the seams with ideas and stocking up on samples from Scalamandré, Schumacher, Osborne & Little, Quadrille, and Stark.

able, my mother died tragically from a fall in the home that was supposed to be the next chapter of our lives. Much like the house, I felt gutted and taken down to the studs. The only way I was able to work through my grief was by completing her dream home: sophisticated, yet approachable; whimsical, yet not juvenile; eclectic, but not unintentional. An art and history enthusiast, Barbara was an avid collector (tole, antique Santas, Staffordshire, Hudson River School canvases—the list goes on) and had always wanted to live in a “jewel box,” so I channeled that desire in every room, adding my more modern, maximalist spin. I wallpapered a powder room in Scalamandré’s iconic Venetian Carnival and commissioned decorative artist Anita Medina to paint a “circus tent” ceiling that would draw the eye upward and leave guests in awe. In the primary bedroom, I got rid of a closet and created an alcove for the bed, which allowed space for a beloved writing desk that my mother used for her correspondence. Effortlessly chic, Barbara owned an extensive collection of Hermès scarves, the most magnificent of which I had framed for a bedroom wall, where my father could see it each morning. The frame needed to be unique and distinguished, so I chose a Brunschwig & Fils faux-bois wallpaper to use as the mat and a bespoke maple frame with 22k-gold detailing and a brass fillet. I have seen many framed scarves, and I was intent on this one being unlike any other. 95

Pieces that my mother had commissioned soon started arriving by post, poignant and bittersweet. In February 2020, we had attended NYNOW at the Javits Center, where my mother fangirled in the presence of sculptor Tommy Mitchell, who made four custom tole pieces. Two of them are botanical confections with leaves that perfectly match those in Scalamandré’s newly reissued Colony in Aprile, which now covers the dining room chairs. I burst into tears as I unwrapped the sculptures and held them up to the fabric. Like my mother, they were perfect. The home was ready for its big reveal exactly one year to the day after her passing. Without my mother’s keen eye, design acumen, and unrelenting encouragement, I would not have a career in design, nor such a passion for it. Even when I was very young, she spent hours poring over design books with me, tearing out pages of magazines, and getting me my own binder (I was six) for all my inspiration photos for the rooms I would design in the future. She often called me out of school so that we could “play hooky,” attending antiques shows and designer showhouses, and our annual pilgrimage to Brimfield was the highlight of every year. My mother’s mantra was “Elegance is not about being noticed, it is about being remembered.” And I cannot think of a better way for her to be remembered than through the rooms of Turner Lane. ✹ may/june 2022

ray, the color of battleships and dreary weather, has been enjoying a prolonged reinvention in the design world. But it takes a finely honed talent to elevate a color often synonymous with dull to an unparalleled level of elegance, sophistication, and comfort. Penny Drue Baird, perhaps a colorist in the truest sense, has been doing just that for decades, creating beautifully articulated, grayinflected rooms with a timeless quality to them. Baird had previously designed two New York apartments for Kerri Levine and her husband, Jared, before the couple decided to leave the city for a suburban spread just across the Hudson River, in Cresskill, New Jersey. The capacious six-bedroom house was the ideal spot to raise their young children, and it even came with panoramic views across the river. “We wanted a relaxed home where every inch could be used every day,” recounts Levine, who runs her own real estate company, “and a house that was absolutely kid-friendly. Penny has six children, so she knows exactly what that means.” The color palette, it turns out, was Levine’s idea. “I’m a gray person,” she says. “I love every shade of it.” And even though Baird has done a lot of neutral rooms, she swears it’s not a signature look per se. “Honestly, I start every project with the client’s directive,” the designer says. “It’s just that a lot of clients have come to

me asking for neutrals. I recently finished a very colorful apartment in Paris, but I think a lot of people are finding neutrality to be calming. Kerri and Jared are a young couple with two young children, and what they really wanted was a fully functioning house for all of them.” Not to mention a bottom line that was within their reach. “I suspect that most of Penny’s clients don’t even give her a budget,” says Levine, who has a close relationship with Baird and likes to “call her my older sister. But she was perfectly willing to include pieces that we had, things we’d inherited from our grandmothers, and to fold in lowercost items to stretch the budget.” “I admit that I’m a snob,” says Baird, who is known for her attention to architectural detail and her affinity for French furniture, “at least in terms of quality, design, and creativity. That doesn’t mean everything has to be a rare antique.” The designer, who keeps an apartment in Paris and has written six books featuring her work, knows the nooks

and niches of the City of Light’s flea markets the way most people know the aisles of their local supermarket. She found several pieces for the project in Paris, as well as from retailers like RH, West Elm, and Mecox. Additionally, Baird added new moldings and flooring (from hardwood to stone), refaced the fireplaces, and updated and ultimately transformed the kitchen and the bathrooms, delivering the Levines with the family-oriented, yet luxurious and inviting home they had set their hearts on. It turned out that the timing couldn’t have been more perfect, given the COVID-19 lockdown that went into effect not long after the project’s completion. “You know a home is working for clients when they are shut in with two small children for the better part of a year,” Baird comments, to which Levine adds, “I don’t know what we would have done if we had had to go through that period in a city apartment. My son now says he loves the house so much, he’s never going to leave.” ✹ may/june 2022

n 1977, New York City was on the brink of bankruptcy, and its infrastructure was crumbling. That same year, sculptor Louise Nevelson presented her vision for a chapel at East 54th Street and Lexington Avenue. First National City Bank and Saint Peter’s Church had just established a first-of-its-kind condominium, and together the unlikely pair set out to redevelop an entire city block, with the Nevelson Chapel at its heart. Today, Nevelson’s champions and supporters have created a Legacy Council to restore the chapel’s physical and artistic integrity and ensure its safekeeping for years to come, anchored by a $5.75 million campaign. The only remaining art environment created by Nevelson that is entirely intact and inhabitable, the chapel is a testament to her mastery of light and shadow and unparalleled sense of space and movement. It is her gift to New York City. Behind the chapel’s renewal is a largely unsung upgrade to the infrastructure. Led by architect Jane Greenwood of Kostow Greenwood Architects, a team of engineers, lighting designers, and sustainability specialists have updated the HVAC system to meet museum-quality temperature and humidity standards, swapped a new LED-lighting system for the failing original, and implemented a plan to replace doors, hardware, windows, and a skylight. Meanwhile, Nevelson’s intricately crafted wooden wall sculptures, nicked in places and bearing discolored or flakedoff paint, are being carefully restored by art conservators. Visitors to the chapel can catch a glimpse of the work in situ, in addition to participating in events celebrating Nevelson’s legacy. At the time of the chapel’s construction, Nevelson said, “If people can have a moment of peace and carry it with them in their memory banks, then that will be a great success for me.” The success of this restoration effort is nothing less than passing on that moment of peace to the future. ✹ may/june 2022

MODERN ROMANCE

An interiors maven and a builder realize the home of their dreams in Bridgehampton

f your clients are an interiors aficionado and a builder of homes, does that automatically guarantee a design success story? Not necessarily, but in the case of the residence featured on these pages, the combo was a slam dunk. Stephanie Michaan and her husband, Doug Bocchino, had outgrown the 2,000-square-foot farmhouse they had lived in since relocating from New York to Bridgehampton seven years ago. Now, with a baby on the way, their expansion needs became more pressing, so they decided to reach out to architecture firm Stelle Lomont Rouhani to explore ways in which they could reconfigure and expand the tight layout. “We initially thought we could use the existing foundation,” recounts architect Viola Rouhani, “but we ended up building a new structure that speaks to the site in a more sensitive way.” The 5,000-square-foot four-

bedroom abode skews minimalist, but maintains a connection to the area’s agricultural history. “The Alaskan yellow cedar shingles and vertical siding will weather to a beautiful silver-gray and become part of the meadowlike landscape,” Rouhani comments. “Our house walks a fine line between modern and traditional, which is what Stephanie and I had always envisioned,” says Bocchino, who, as the co-founder of Bocchino Theisen Builders, had the opportunity to act as his own client for the first time. “I’m normally very decisive, but I second-guessed myself a lot when it came to my own house. Since it’s the first home we’ve built together, we wanted it to be perfect.” At the top of couple’s wish list: an abundance of natural light. “Our previous house had great light, so it was important that we didn’t lose that,” says Michaan, the proprietor of the Interior, an e-commerce site spe-

cializing in luxurious, almost ethereal-looking home accessories. “We also wanted high ceilings, an open-plan concept, a media room to house the television, and a super-functional primary suite.” To achieve this, Rouhani and her team divided the residence into two volumes: One contains the main living areas and two upstairs bedrooms, and the other the media room, a wide hallway that doubles as an office, a guest room, and a primary suite. “Strategically placed floor-to-ceiling glazing and skylights,” Rouhani says, “create a magical light show throughout the day.” For the interiors, the couple called on designer Michael Del Piero, who owns a shop in Wainscott, in addition to a design studio in Chicago. “I love Michael’s store because it’s layered, textural, and beautiful, without a lot of color,” Michaan says. “I have always gravitated toward neutrals, so we knew the house would be predominantly white, gray, beige, and black. The one exception is the media room, which incorporates two of Doug’s favorite colors, olive and ocher.” Fortuitously, Del Piero had had the opportunity to visit Michaan’s brick-and-mortar shop in East Hampton prior to its closing not long ago. “The first time I walked into Stephanie’s store,” recalls Del Piero, “I felt a kindred spirit. I thought, This is my soul sister! For her home, we focused on neutral surfaces with texture, such as plaster and lime wash, and I encouraged her and Doug to introduce more wood accents into the equation to match the oak flooring. They both appreciate quality and beauty, and the home isn’t overly styled or layered. It’s approachable, functional, and serene.” In this case, it seems, the notion of “shop talk” took on extra meaning, with a happy builder joining in on the fun. “Modern can be stark and cold,” Bocchino says, “but Michael’s aesthetic lends a much-needed warmth.” ✹ may/june 2022
