ontemporary painters are turning to pastels, summer homes are getting sophisticated, and kitchen appliances C are being cleverly concealed. Here are the latest trends in art, architecture, and design. ART

Following in the tradition of such celebrated masters as Renoir, Cassatt, Picasso, and Degas, contemporary artists are working in pastels. These new works, far from the pastoral pieces of yore, are edgy and avant-garde, whether the subject is abstract, figural, or representational. The Swiss-born artist Nicolas Party, for one, has embraced the mellow medium for his supernatural landscapes, portraits, and still-life scenes. Through the use of soft pastel, Party, who is based in New York City and Brussels, injects an unsettling component into his works, which are familiar yet strangely foreign to the eyes. His February 2020 Los Angeles solo exhibition, his first in the city, featured a series of seemingly traditional-style pastel portraits whose conventionality was undermined by clothing the serious-looking subjects with naturalistic garments ranging from gigantic mushrooms and fully unfurled red roses to frolicking frogs. Party, who has executed major mural commissions for the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and the Dallas Museum of Art, “detects surprising connections between seemingly disparate worlds—nature, science, the art historical canon—and invites his viewer to consider alternate realities,” according to Hauser & Wirth, the global gallery that represents him.

The traditional vacation home, be it the rustic cabin in the woods or the modest cottage on a private beach, is getting so sophisticated that its aesthetics and amenities not only rival but also often surpass those of the primary residence. Architects Charles M. Haver and Stewart R. Skolnick, whose eponymous firm in Roxbury, Conn., specializes in second homes, says high-net-worth individuals are spending more time at these homes away from home. “Time is the ultimate luxury, and our clients see these homes as their refuge,” Haver says, adding that some families spend the entire summer there. Adds Skolnick, “These also are places where they entertain guests, and if, like most of our clients, they have large properties, they request multiple buildings.” The duo designed a 70-acre gentleman’s farm in Washington, Conn., for a Manhattan family that includes not only a traditional-style stone house but also an entertainment arcade in a converted barn that features a billiards room, a movie theater with professional-style seating, and a pub; a swimming pool with a spa; a pool house with a gym and an outdoor shower; and a guesthouse. They say clients typically request kitchens with a fireplace, a seating area with a flat-screen television, and multiple foodprep stations and sinks so friends and family can help with the cooking. Other favorite items on the second-home wish list include gyms, wine cellars or wine rooms, media spaces, entertainment centers/games rooms, and fully outfitted outdoor kitchens. DESIGN

As kitchens become more open, their appliances are being concealed beautifully behind closed doors so they blend in with the rest of the home’s decor. “Clients are thinking about their kitchens as actual rooms, not separated from the rest of the house,” says designer Oliver M. Furth, whose namesake firm is based in Los Angeles. “More and more as part of this integration, folks want kitchens to ‘look’ like rooms, too.” It’s part of a larger trend, he says, to make high-traffic, functional rooms have a cleaner and more streamlined appearance regardless of their design style. “But a clean look still requires a place to put things—more so if the ‘things’ aren’t going to be out on display,” he says. “That means extra closed cabinetry to hide appliances, storage for equipment and tools, deep drawers for pots and pans, cabinets with doors for mixing bowls, and even garages for small appliances like toasters, blenders, and coffee machines.” In a recent open-plan project in Malibu, Calif., Furth hid the kitchen’s refrigeration units and dishwashers behind cabinetry doors and added a small service kitchen directly behind the main kitchen. There’s also storage space that, in homage to the main kitchen, is hidden behind cabinet doors. “This way, my client gets to be in the kitchen and be a part of things,” he says. “There’s also the option to make a mess in the service kitchen and have that whole area be hidden.” 7

This home in Santa Barbara, Calif., built in 2016, has floor-to-ceiling windows and easy access to the outdoors from every room.

anch living keeps it on the level. Spread out over one floor, these homes are more casual than other styles, often lacking the symmetry of more classic designs. Buyers are attracted to that casual air, and the style maximizes indoor-outdoor living that adds to the feeling of ease. The homes can also allow for privacy, with clever layouts and landscaping. Modern examples incorporate features like open-floor plans, floor-to-ceiling windows, and the latest technology into the build, but they are still centered on indoor-outdoor living. The style flourished in places like California, where the weather allows for the outdoors to be an extension of the home most of the year. Many of these were built as suburban developments in the years immediately following World War II. “In the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s, most of the very good residential architects here in California were designing ranch houses; it was just part of their portfolio,” explains Irvine, Calif.based architect Alan Hess, author of The Ranch House. “They are just excellently designed.” Architect Cliff May popularized the style, inspired by the adobe ranch houses owned by his family near San Diego, according to a 1986 New York Times article. “I rebelled against the boxy houses being built then,” May, who died in 1989, told the Times. “The ranch house was everything a California house should be—it had cross-ventilation, the floor was level with the ground, and with its courtyard and the exterior corridor. It was about sunshine and informal outdoor living.”

A sprawling Cliff May-designed home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., offers a central courtyard.

May built the first home in this style in 1931, and, over his career, designed more than 1,000 custom houses. The bulk of them were in California, but he also had projects as far away as Ireland, Australia, and Switzerland. Modern architects are also melding cutting-edge design with one-level living. In Santa Barbara, Calif., local architect Ken Radtkey and his team at Blackbird Architects created a ranch-style home there in 2016. It incorporates a modern kitchen, dining, and living area as the center of the home, with the master suite and office separate from the additional bedrooms. Guests and residents can access the outdoors from almost anywhere in the home. The home has modern sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, and its curved roof creates a shaded outdoor living space. And the outdoor areas are just as well planned, with native and drought-resistant plantings, grass terraces, an orchard, a pool, gardens, and a koi pond with a stone waterfall. The owner’s imported Moroccan doors have been incorporated throughout the house, creating a unique contrast to the home’s clean lines, according to the architect. There’s also a separate garage with an artist’s studio. Recently listed for just under $5 million, Montecito-based Sotheby’s International Realty agent Joe McCorkell is representing the property. Homes by May are still in demand, as well, according

$5,800,000 Property ID: Y7M5JS | Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty


to Clara Yang, an agent with the Beverly Hills Brokerage of Sotheby’s International Realty. Yang is currently marketing a three-bedroom, two-anda-half bathroom home designed by May in 1948. Located in the lower Mandeville Canyon area in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood, the home is listed for $3.9 million. The kitchen and bathrooms of the 2,322-square-foot home have been updated, but much of the design remains the same, Yang says. “Wherever you are, there’s a door to walk outside,” she notes. “And there are windows throughout to let the light in.” The home, built in a U shape, surrounds a courtyard with a firepit and mature landscaping. There are also two patios with fountains, a pool surrounded by a glass fence, and a pocket garden. “It’s not like a modern house with an open-floor plan. It’s like a treasure hunt; there’s something different around every corner, ” Yang says. “It’s perfect for staying home, because each person can have their own space and everyone can meet up in the middle.” Other May-designed properties do offer that open plan, however. A four-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., boasts a flowing layout, as well as abundant natural light and a central courtyard that connects seamlessly to the indoor living areas.

The Rancho Santa Fe home, top, has an open-floor plan. The Santa Barbara home, bottom, is decidedly modern.

Landscaping is key to ranch homes, and May is known for having brought in mature trees to plant on the grounds of his projects. This property is no different, note agents Eric Iantorno and Beth Van Boxtel of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty. The home, built in 1973, sits on almost three acres and is currently on the market for $5.8 million. “Cliff May used adult trees and plants at the time, and these days they are giant,” Van Boxtel explains. They include olive and pepper trees, plus a small fruit tree orchard, a vegetable garden, several kinds of berries, and a variety of tropical plants. “The olive trees make it feel so romantic,” Iantorno

notes. “And the details of the space—things are small and then expand, and that play on proportions makes it feel very special.” Single-level houses have gained in popularity as the baby boomer generation looks to retire and relocate to places without stairs. But Yang says she’s seen more interest in ranch-style homes from buyers of all ages. People are attracted by the informal ease of living there, as well as the integrated indoor-outdoor experience. Others are drawn to the deceptively simple architecture. “They’re just brilliant little designs, and people are appreciating them,” Hess says. 11

ith a never-ending supply of technological advancements and screens seemingly around every turn, modern life often pulls people away from nature. Fortunately, looking up at the stars never ceases to amaze, especially when a postcard-perfect backdrop and ideal conditions are combined with world-class stargazing facilities. From remote desert moonscapes to exotic islands, these are the best places on the planet for catching views of galaxies far, far away.

Home to the large, arid Namib Desert, windswept Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries on Earth. To get to the remote corner of southern Africa for the perfect spot is a long journey through mesmerizing dunes and rocky outcrops. When the International Dark-Sky Association, the world’s leading authority recognizing places for their sky quality, formed in 1988, the first reserve to achieve the highest gold-tier status was the NamibRand Nature Reserve, a dazzling, isolated wilderness of rust-colored dunes and sandy plains framed by the Nubib Mountains. Watching the stars sparkling above sand dunes and mountains, accompanied by the occasional animal chorus, guarantees an unforgettable experience. CALIFORNIA

No U.S. state offers the variety of stargazing opportunities like California. Most notable is Death Valley National Park, a gold-tier International Dark Sky Park where the Milky Way can be spotted with the naked eye. (Only the neon glow of Las Vegas, some 100 miles away, prevents the skies from being even darker.) 13

A standout among the few lodging options within the massive, 3.4 million-acre park, The Oasis at Death Valley has taken measures to minimize light pollution in the area, providing a great home base for amateur astronomers. Palm Springs, where several upscale resorts incorporate stargazing into their guest activities, is in close proximity to two International Dark Sky Parks: Joshua Tree National Park and Borrego Springs. Visitors can also enjoy the Rancho Mirage Observatory, which opened in 2018 as the rare observatory built specifically for public use. Meanwhile, as one of the least visited and darkest national parks, Channel Islands National Park enjoys exceptionally low levels of light pollution from its position off the Southern California coast. The few visitors who make the trek and stay past sundown are rewarded with astounding stargazing opportunities. In Northern California, Mount Shasta serves as a beacon for stargazers. The intrepid head to rugged Siskiyou County to drive 8,000 feet up—more than halfway to the summit—to appreciate the outdoors after dark. Local outfitters offer nighttime guided stargazing and spiritual hikes, while winter brings custom moonlight snowshoe adventures and the opportunity to ski under the stars at Mt. Shasta Ski Park. Nearby in the Shasta Cascade region, the city of Redding attracts stargazers thanks to its proximity to Lassen Volcanic National Park, one of the world’s few locations where you can find all four types of volcanoes. The park offers starry-night ranger-led programs as well as the Lassen Dark Sky Festival, a free two-day astronomy festival usually held annually in August, featuring constellation tours, solar scope viewing, and live demonstrations. Among the state’s myriad destinations for stargazing, none is as famous as the area around Yosemite National Park and the surrounding Mariposa County. Every year around late July or August, stargazers flock to Glacier Point on the

south wall of Yosemite Valley to witness the Perseid meteor shower, when stars appear to rain down from the heavens. While summertime visitors to Yosemite take advantage of the multiple star-watching activities offered nightly, others decamp to the Ahwahnee Meadow or El Capitan Meadow, where sheer granite cliffs paint a dramatic landscape against the starry night sky. TENERIFE

Tenerife, the largest and most populated of the Canaries, is often lauded for its stargazing opportunities. The exceptionally clear and dark skies can be explained by the remote island’s high altitude, proximity to the equator, and distance from tropical storms, not to mention a law restricting flight paths in order to protect stargazing conditions. Since 1964, the Teide Observatory has been an international hub for solar astronomy from its perch atop its namesake volcano. Teams have arrived from around the world to make new discoveries about the sun using the observatory’s sophisticated telescopes, and fledgling astronomers can enjoy guided observatory tours where guides point out constellations from both hemispheres, meteor showers, and the Summer Triangle. Casual types need only to take a cable car to the top of Mount Teide (Spain’s highest peak) for evening stargazing. HAWAII

At Hawaii’s Mauna Kea, the tallest point in the state, 13 huge telescopes, including the world’s largest optical telescope, occupy the summit of the dormant volcano, where scientists detect light from distant galaxies thanks to the altitude, clean air, low humidity, and lack of light pollution. Between sunrise and sunset, visitors make the two-hour drive to the 13,796foot summit to brave the elements and low oxygen levels. Situated at a more manageable 9,200 feet, the well-equipped

visitor info center offers free lectures, Q&As, and a chance to peer through 11-, 14-, and 16-inch telescopes. NEW ZEALAND

With its remote locale and clear skies, the “land of the long white cloud” has long been a mecca for stargazers, particularly the area around the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park on the rugged South Island. One of the world’s largest and most accessible Dark Sky Reserves is found at the Mackenzie Basin, a high-country plateau ringed entirely by mountains from which the Magellanic Clouds and distant dwarf galaxies are visible year-round. The glacial Lake Tekapo is home to the Dark Sky Reserve, a self-proclaimed leader in astrotourism offering a plethora of stargazing activities, including a mountaintop stargazing experience at the world-renowned Mount John Observatory. The North Island also receives a steady stream of stargazers, many of whom trek to Helena Bay on the remote northeastern coast. There, Helena Bay Lodge offers 800 acres of scenic greenery, four private beaches, and unobstructed views of the night sky.

The Milky Way is in full view at Death Valley in California.


The desert landscape of the American Southwest has long appealed to amateur sky watchers. Located just outside of Albuquerque, the prehistoric Puebloan place of mystery known as Chaco Culture National Historical Park lets visitors experience the same dark skies the Chacoans observed 1,000 years ago. More than 99% of the park is designated as a natural darkness zone with no permanent outdoor lighting, ensuring the preservation of nocturnal ecosystems. Visitors to Chaco Canyon encounter many solstice and equinox markers, a reminder of how the Chacoans incorporated celestial movements into their architecture, art, and culture.

shapely frames, the effect can be subtle or statement making. “Geometric shapes are very dynamic and carry a lot of visual weight,” says New Jersey-based Jennifer Matthews, co-founder and creative director at Tempaper, a line of removable wallpaper. “If they are small, they can add textural interest, whereas larger shapes create bold movement in a room.” “When mixed with more traditional motifs, they lend a freshness to the designs,” says Los Angeles-based designer Stefani Stein. Meanwhile, the repetitive nature of geometrics lends an organization to a room, so there’s an automatic symmetry. “Don’t be afraid to use geometric shapes, regardless of your overall style direction,” says Tulsa, Okla.-based designer Mel Bean. “An all-neutral space with limited layering of geometric shapes and patterns is an entirely different experience from a colorful, complex, extensive use of pattern and color.” SHIFT SHAPES

Combining different shapes creates an interesting tension, Matthews says, like pairing oval sconces or circled mirrors with scalloped wallpaper and a diamond rug or bold-tiled flooring. New York-based Barbara Karpf, founder and president of DecoratorsBest, an online retailer for high-end textiles and wallpapers, recommends mixing different geometric patterns together when they have varied scales. “A small, tight pattern works well with a large open geometric—one pattern could have a touch of a color that is prominent in the other pattern,” she says. WORK WITH WALLPAPER Marimekko wallpaper, from DecoratorsBest in New York, adds a chic geometric look to a living room space.


The easiest way to apply pattern to walls is by using wallpaper. “Geometric wallpapers range in effect from youthful to sophisticated,” Bean says. “The iconic Hicks hexagon wall covering is an elegant classic. And for a bold, modern approach, I love Cole & Son’s Geometric II paper,” she says. “A wallpapered statement wall can form foyers from simple hallways, home offices from cozy corners, and separate dining areas from living spaces,” Karpf says. Keep in mind, a small, repetitive pattern works everywhere, whereas a big, bold pattern will work best on an accent wall, she says.

hen walls collide with geometric shapes, an uninspired space can suddenly have a strong point of view. Whether W iterated as patterned wallpaper, mirrors, or artwork in

And, when considering color, generally, the lighter the hue, the subtler the experience, says Newton, Mass.-based designer Liz Caan. “Geometric patterns with high-contrast colors will always veer into bold and graphic territory, so be mindful when choosing your palette.” Using geometric prints has another benefit: They can hide a multitude of sins. For one project, Manhattan-based designer Timothy Brown used a multicolor tonal stripe to hide some millwork he didn’t want to remove but also didn’t want to highlight. They also “allow you to control the direction and flow of a space, whether you want to cast focus on an area or guide the eye away from a less savory spot,” he says. MIX MEDIUMS

Combining geometrics with other patterns adds interest and can balance out the look. “A stripe or geometric pattern on a printed grasscloth wallcovering can soften the crisp nature of a bold print,” Stein says. She suggests trying a variegated stripe, monochrome geometric,

or tonal variation for a dramatic backdrop that won’t overpower the other elements of the space. Caan prefers to play with “opposites” when it comes to wallpapers, such as mixing a bold stripe or geometric with a floral. “When the colors are copacetic and the scales are varying— creating some relational value—the end result can have a dramatic effect, but one with a softer edge thanks to the floral balancing the sharp lines of the geometric,” she says.

colors to create geometric motifs on walls. Geometric shapes, when applied to upholstery, help create depth, says Chicago- and San Francisco-based interior designer Alison Pickart. “I’ve used ceiling-mounted drapery in hallways that have utility and closet doors that needed to be concealed yet still be accessible,” she says. She also loves to use tiled geometric patterns, whether on kitchen walls or bathroom backsplashes to incorporate interest.

Clockwise from left: A bathroom with Tempaper wallpaper, a bathroom designed by Alison Pickart with patterned walls, and a kitchen designed by Liz Caan features geometric tiles.


There are other mediums in which to shape your walls, too. “Our favorite method, which introduces rich texture and architectural interest, is through applied moldings,” says Chicago-based designer Tom Stringer. “We’ve used a repeating geometric motif at various scales in applied moldings, and then again in other areas in carved screens to layer pattern and texture into a stark white interior.” Stringer has also utilized painted designs, which he achieved by taping off patterns and then painting in contrasting


“The biggest impact comes from either using them in excess or very thoughtfully in small, understated doses,” Caan says. Brown considers every aspect of the room when working with geometric shapes to create an overall symmetry. “Any room is a mix of geometric shapes—from added furniture to the decisive lines of windows and doors. Focus on the scale of any pattern or shape so that it all works together,” Brown says. 17

“I have a painter friend, Max Decker, and he gave this to me for my 40th birthday. It’s my son and my husband looking over a landscape in England. It hangs in our dining room so we see it every day.”


“These Made by Gotland vases come all the way from a small island in Sweden called Gotland, where my mother lives. The company supports artisans on the island, and they sent me these pieces. I love them so much—they’re all handmade. I use them as vases, and just as decoration. I love the warmth that they bring.”


“I did wallpaper in our guest bathroom—it’s the perfect room to get a little creative. I like that this looks like painted gold. The gold paint strokes feel fancy, and everything else in there is gold, which is fun.”



“I have a lidded crystal platter that’s very old school that my great-grandmother gave me. She came to America as a teenager, fell in love with it, but only stayed for a few years before returning to Sweden. She got this platter in America in the early 1900s. I love and cherish it, and I only bring it out on very special occasions.”


“I bought this big, old-fashioned cooler at a flea market. It’s the type you’d see at an old grocery store filled with CocaCola. We fill it up and with ice so we can have cold drinks outside. I like the rustic look, and it fits the vibe of the rest of the house.”

She renovated about a year and a half ago, to give the space more of an indoor/outdoor flow. “I decided to blow it out and make it a big open space, with sliding glass doors everywhere.” The result is a gorgeous Mediterranean-influenced space, perfect for family living. “When I am home, I do love it,” admits the star.

A view of the artist at work, above. Matisse put great thought into her bag collection.


Opposite page from left: Sophie Matisse; Mark Cross; this page: Mark Cross (2)

Matisse is a natural-born artist. SAsophie the daughter of sculptor Paul

Matisse and great-granddaughter of celebrated French painter Henri Matisse, it’s no surprise Matisse found herself in the art field. But she says it’s less her family’s roots in the art world and more her upbringing that led her there. Matisse says she did not grow up hearing many stories about her famous great-grandfather, which she believes saved her from “a lot of baggage” and potential pressure to live up to his legacy as a painter. “I don’t think I would’ve been strong enough to lift that on my shoulders at that time, so I got my roots into my own art,” she says. Matisse, 55, studied art in Paris and developed her own style as a contemporary artist. She says she thinks of her work like a fishing expedition: “always in search of a great catch with lots of daydreaming along the way.” Matisse now lives in New York and has a gallery on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. She works mostly with oil and gouache paint—although she will debut a show this fall at her New York gallery featuring short films along with painted works—and has developed a love for painting on objects. Though her first professional work with painting objects was in 2008, when she collaborated with perfumer Kilian Hennessy—of the Hennessy cognac family—on a line of perfume bottles, she says she actually first experimented with the idea by painting on her own iPhone. Since then, Matisse has painted on chess sets, which will also be featured in her fall show, and on four pianos, which were a part of a 60-piano installment in New York organized by the nonprofit Sing for Hope. “It’s nice to kind of melt the lines of the piano by painting, for instance, on the keys,” she says about the piano installment project. “The piano almost disappears in the design, so it’s kind of like an ambiguous blurring of the lines of the objects and the form of whatever’s being painted.” While Matisse enjoys the opportunity

Sophie Matisse has collaborated with Mark Cross to make unique, limitededition handbags.

to paint on new objects, she says she never wants it to be too commercial. She prefers to work on collaborations that allow her to express her own style, which she says is a rare opportunity. “I just feel the sense of the preciousness of time in every day,” Matisse says. “The days just go by so fast. I want to spend them with something that’s more meaningful.” Matisse has most recently collaborated with luxury handbag brand Mark Cross, and that partnership has exactly fit the artist’s criteria. She was introduced to the brand by a mutual friend who had the idea for her to paint a limited edition collection of 10 handbags, each with a unique design. “They just said, ‘Paint it,’ and they just went into the project with full confidence and that was quite nice,” Matisse says. Matisse says her inspiration stemmed from Sara and Gerald Murphy—whose father acquired the company after the death of Mark Cross—and their way of life as expats living in France in the 1920s, entertaining the likes of Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. “I read about their lives,” Matisse says. “I thought, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be great for Sara Murphy to have a collection of different bags she can bring to

different parties or different occasions?’ and that’s how that started.” The first handbag in the collection mimics an international letter, stamped with Sara Murphy’s birthday to suggest “a romantic birthday present” from Gerald to Sara, Matisse says. “It gives way to the series of fantasy bags. . .this sort of romantic, kind of nostalgic feeling,” she says. Some of the other handbags in the collection resemble a horse tack and bridle, a nod to the brand’s 19th-century beginnings as a leather goods maker for horse and buggy riders. One of Matisse’s favorites in the collection, titled For Grace, is painted with pearls and the charms Grace Kelly wore in the classic 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window. In fact, all of the bags in the collection are styled after the overnight case Mark Cross designed for Kelly to carry in the film, and the style is named The Grace Box. The collection was released in late February, and while Matisse isn’t sure how many more collaborations she’ll do in the future, she is grateful for the artistic freedom she was given. “It was a lovely project,” she says. “They couldn’t have been nicer and more supportive than they were, so that turned out quite nice.

ook good, feel good”—it’s an aphorism often used to summarize how one’s appearance can make someone act “Lempowered. But Paris-based sneaker company Veja proves

that the phrase can possess an even deeper meaning. Started in 2004, the outfit was built around an abiding devotion to treating everyone and everything in its supply chain and its distribution structure with care and respect. For instance, its sneakers use rubber harvested by respectably paid communities in the Amazon forest, where rubber trees grow naturally in the wild. And 53% of its running shoe model is made from natural or recycled products, such as rice waste, banana oil, sugar cane, and recycled plastic bottles collected in Brazil and made into a mesh. Each detail of every model is examined not just for how good it looks, but by the good it does for the world and the workers. “Veja is one step in high aesthetics,” says co-founder Sébastien Kopp, “one step in ecology and fair trade.” For the style- and justice-conscious set, both are movements in the right direction. And it has found celebrities ranging from Meghan Markle to Emma Watson to Eddie Redmayne to Reese Witherspoon wearing them. In their early 20s, Kopp and his childhood friend François-Ghislain Morillion—both of whom are now 41— worked in investment banking. They soon abandoned the business and started an NGO. They traveled around the world—to almost 25 countries, Kopp estimates—to write reports for major French companies about how their supply chains affected local populations, and did or did not achieve the companies’ supposed fair-trade or environmental goals. “We were disappointed by what we saw,” Kopp says. “Most of the time, the environment, social justice, and economic justice were treated as out of the company’s business model.” They decided to take those values and put them at the core of a new company.

Sébastien Kopp, left, and François-Ghislain Morillion are founders of Veja, a sneaker company dedicated to doing good. Below, a peek into the Veja office and showroom in Paris.

They chose sneakers. “It’s a very symbolic product,” Kopp says. They loved them and wore them constantly. And from a business perspective, they saw that so much of the prices customers paid actually came from something they thought Veja could do without: advertising. By cutting out all ads and marketing, they could pay more to make the sneaker— five to seven times more, Kopp says— enabling them to use fair-trade raw materials, to sign suppliers to longerterm contracts, and to collaborate with factories in Brazil that let workers unionize, offer four weeks of paid vacation a year, and pay a living wage that enables employees to buy homes while working 40-hour weeks. The shoes still cost in the $78 to $280 range. More revealing than their success may be how unafraid they are to show how they fail. They submit themselves to review from an independent nonprofit. They openly confess to shortcomings on their website—about using an e-commerce site that “still relies on banking partners with branches in tax havens,” or about the trade-offs between vegan leather and petroleumbased alternatives.

The company struggles to track where the cows that it uses for leather come from, and hopes to make sure it isn’t the unwitting cause of deforestation or damage to the Amazon. Veja’s openness is, of course, a deliberate choice. “That is the difficulty of Veja, but that is the beautiful thing also,” Kopp says. “To talk about reality. Not to talk about a green company that is doing everything very well—this is a corporate dream. We try to expose what we do, and the limits of what we do….To be in the reality. Not to be dreaming.” Veja has no big investors. (“It makes us very free,” Kopp says. “We limit the growth of the company to maintain a human rhythm.”) It doesn’t do market research. (“We design the sneakers we want to wear.”) They collaborate with the beloved designer Rick Owens, who described Veja to Vogue as “the most responsible sneaker company I could find.” In May 2019, Kopp and Morillion hired a CEO, Laure Browne, who has exposed blindspots and revealed possibilities. Veja’s collection of physical spaces is expanding. Since its start, it has sold 3.5 million sneakers in more than 40 countries, including the United States—each pair

made in the style, and with much of the sustainability, the co-founders sought. But they try not to preach. “We don’t judge anybody,” Kopp says. “Maybe our society is a bit sick because everybody says to everybody, ‘You should be like this.’…What we try to do [is] to change ourselves.” He worries that the industry, after years of worldwide growth and globalization, has forgotten where things come from. Veja could stand as a reminder. “That’s what we would like to change—setting up an example as small as a shoe brand.” 23

London, the brand dedicated an entire room to its Royal Collection, consisting of more than 15 royal timepieces. The exhibition space was designed to evoke the 1851 Great Exhibition in the Crystal Palace at Hyde Park in London. At that historic event, Queen Victoria, the reigning monarch at the time, acquired a Patek Philippe open-face, key-winding, and hand-setting pendant watch and matching brooch. The yellow gold timepiece embellished with blue enameling and a flower with accents set with rose-cut diamonds was a highlight of the 2015 display. While Queen Victoria may have been the first British monarch to possess a treasure from the esteemed brand, she was certainly not the last. The exhibition also showcased a Ref. 4975/1G with diamonds and a multistrand pearl bracelet that belongs to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who lent the extravagant jewelry watch so the public could admire it. Queen Elizabeth’s appreciation of fine Swiss timepieces was cultivated from a young age. On the occasion of her wedding in 1947, the Swiss Federal Republic presented her with a diamondset Vacheron Constantin model 4481

designed for her. In 1981, she passed it on to Princess Diana as a wedding gift when she married Prince Charles. For her coronation in 1952, the queen wore a dainty diamond-set Jaeger-LeCoultre 101, which still lays claim to the smallest mechanical watch movement in the world. In celebration of her diamond jubilee in 2012, Jaeger-LeCoultre presented her with a new version of the timeless 101. A casual candid photo of the queen in 1992 revealed an Art Deco-era Omega Ladymatic on her wrist, and more recently, she has been spotted wearing a classic gold Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars. Her son Prince Charles appears to have inherited her taste for understated, elegant watches, such as the Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronograph that he wore to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018. On other occasions, he’s been spotted wearing a bolder two-tone Cartier Santos and a deco-style Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. It’s also likely that his collection includes a Hamilton RAF Pilot’s Chronograph that he would have received during his military training. His sons, like their millennial peers, are drawn to rugged steel sport watches. Prince William favors his Omega Seamaster Professional Quartz 300M with a blue dial. The watch was a gift from his late mother, Princess Diana. Prince Harry, having spent a decade in the Army, opts for brawny sport watches, such as a Rolex Explorer II and a Breitling Aerospace Advantage, a model exclusively available to Apache helicopter pilots who have completed combat missions. The special edition features a rendering of an Apache helicopter and the Army Air Corps wings on the dial. In keeping with her trademark classic style, Kate Middleton’s go-to watch is a stainless-steel Cartier Ballon Bleu with a blue sapphire cabochon set in the crown, a complement to her 12-carat blue sapphire engagement ring that had once belonged to Prince William’s late mother. Markle is also a Cartier fan, though her two-tone stainless steel and yellow gold Tank Française was reportedly a pre-royal-family reward to herself for the success of her television show Suits. Overall, British royals express their personal sense of style with timeless classics with lasting value, and many of their favorites are even within reach of us mere commoners.

more accessible to all. But in light of the unprecedented raft of temporary closures, museums have looked to leverage new platforms and applications in order to share their collections with millions. Though the shift to digital was brought on by the pandemic, it’s here to stay. Many institutions have taken the opportunity to offer new resources geared toward teachers and parents. Now a whole new audience can better enjoy and understand priceless collections across the globe. In response to stay-at-home measures, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) rebranded its website to LACMA @ Home, enabling the public to watch exhibition walkthroughs, read artist interviews and exhibition catalogs, and learn via online courses, lectures, and teaching resources. Unique offerings include LACMA Productions, a series of contemporary artist profile videos made by emerging filmmakers, and curated playlists of global music inspired by recent shows such as “Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific” and “To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500-1800.” The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., now

offers at-home resources including audio and video interviews between its curators and artists such as Alex Katz and Julie Mehretu. Users can listen to lectures, downloadable as podcasts, on any number of topics, from the moon in the age of photography to art history. Educational resources run all the way from prekindergarten to university level and include the NGAkids Art Zone app, which offers myriad interactive activities inspired by works in the museum’s collection. There’s also a sketchbook that lets children make digital artworks based on those in the museum. Miami’s Bass Museum of Art is one of America’s most tech-savvy institutions, as evidenced by The Bass Squared, a satellite gallery exclusive to Instagram that exhibits art native to the digital realm. During the pandemic, the museum used its regular Instagram page to offer a daily hashtagged art activity known as #CafecitoBreak, an art-based activity from its archive starting at 3:05 p.m. Eastern time. (The city’s area code is 305.) For those who own a virtual reality headset, The Bass offers a VR-compatible exhibit inspired by Ugo Rondinone’s 2018 show “good evening beautiful blue.” The Art Institute of Chicago had to close its doors only a few short weeks after it launched “El Greco: Ambition and Defiance.” The museum quickly pivoted to move the hotly

Junior curators can use an online “journeymaker” tool to build a personalized museum booklet around themes like superheroes and sleepovers. Those who have yet to visit Louvre Abu Dhabi can simply head to its website to enjoy a deep dive into the museum’s highlights via audio and video guides. Newly added features include a 360-degree virtual tour of the museum’s latest international exhibition, “Furusiyya: The Art of Chivalry Between East and West,” as well as digital learning resources for teachers and a series of online videos and artistic activities for families and children. The museum’s mobile app contains more than 150 audio clips (available in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian, German, and Hindi), including curator-led tours. Museums around the world have followed the standard set by Amsterdam’s beloved Rijksmuseum, which, in response to the health crisis, launched “Rijksmuseum From Home,” a multimedia initiative offering various ways to engage with the collection. Even after reopening (with limited entry), the museum continues to add to its online programming, including a mystery puzzle involving the Gallery of Honour’s works, such as Rembrandt’s The Night Watch and Vermeer’s The Milkmaid. Devotees can keep tabs on one of the most ambitious restoration projects in recent history via “Operation Night Watch,” a dedicated site in which experts explore different aspects of research they’re conducting on Rembrandt’s famed painting. The Frick, Henry Clay Frick’s mansion-turned-museum on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, had been due to close temporarily in 2020 for a massive renovation. Ahead of the museum’s closure, it unveiled an intuitive virtual tour of the building, which walks visitors through the evolution of its architecture, with accompanying audio guides available on the museum’s SoundCloud page. In addition to the grand interior spaces, viewers can peruse the museum’s priceless collection of Old Masters, sculpture, porcelain, and furniture.

The NGV Kids at Home site provides worksheets, art games, and DIY craft activities for little ones. Despite limited resources, smaller regional museums are also getting in on the act. In New Orleans, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art utilizes Zoom and Facebook to host interactive programming such as art-inspired meditation, family workshops, teen art classes, and musical performances. St. Louis’ City Museum launched City Museum on Air, in which staff, crew, artists, and historians take to Facebook Live every weekday to share stories, teach free art classes, and offer sneak peeks at upcoming exhibits. While it might not match the thrill one gets from walking the hallowed halls of the world’s finest museums, there’s an unprecedented amount of content waiting to be explored. 27

or more than a century, New York’s Hamptons, a group of villages and Fhamlets on the East End of Long Island,

have been the summer sanctuary of choice for Manhattan’s rich and famous. Over the years, as they fled the sweltering city, they transformed the area in the South Fork from modest potato farms to grand estates known the world over. These days, the Hamptons are a year-round destination for an elite international set of buyers, many of whom are multimillionaires, billionaires, and celebrities. “There are very few places that have the beaches we have,” says Harald Grant, a senior global real estate advisor for Sotheby’s International Realty, Southampton Brokerage, who has covered the Hamptons since 1987, when Sotheby’s opened an office there. “They are wide and clean, and the waters are pristine.” The diversity of the Hamptons also is part of the allure: Each village and hamlet has a different personality. Here are four “A-plus locations” that Grant says convey the diversity of the celebrated seaside resort.

a dirt road, so most of the houses are in the modern style—glass and concrete and metal—and the older ones are being torn down.” On Gin Lane, he says, properties typically sell for $30 million to $100 million. “Most of the properties are two acres,” he says, “and there are lots of historic homes from the 1930s that cannot be altered.” EAST HAMPTON VILLAGE

One of the oldest and largest communities in the Hamptons, Southampton Village historically has been home to a host of prominent families, including the Fords, the DuPonts, and the Vanderbilts. “The properties in Southampton are old-world and well-groomed,” Grant says. The most prestigious properties are located in three areas—the Estate Section and the oceanfront roads of Gin Lane and Meadow Lane. In the Estate Section, comprised of grand estates and historic houses that are not on the ocean, properties typically are one to five acres and generally command $5 million to $25 million, Grant says. The oceanfront roads of Gin Lane and Meadow Lane, which has been dubbed Billionaire Lane, are the most expensive in the village. Prices start at $20 million, Grant says, adding that waterside properties are the most expensive. Grant says properties in Meadow Lane, Gin Lane, and the Estate Section typically are two acres. “This is a newer area of Southampton,” he says. “Meadow Lane started as

East Hampton Village, which has become Hollywood East, is the place to be and be seen without attracting attention. “It’s upbeat, there’s more nightlife and action, there’s a lot going on,” Grant says. Through the years, it has been home to a number of celebrities, including Paul McCartney, Martha Stewart, and Jerry Seinfeld. Like Southampton Village, the exclusivity is concentrated in three areas: the Estate Section, Further Lane, and Lily Pond Lane. He notes that the Estate Section and Lily Pond Lane feature estates from the 1920s and 1930s, while Further Lane has newer residences in a more modern style. Prices in the three areas, he adds, are the same as they are for their counterparts in Southampton Village, typically $5 million to $25 million, for properties of equivalent sizes. SAGAPONACK

Located between Southampton and East Hampton, Sagaponack, which became its own village in 2005, has retained its rural, country feel despite its popularity.

“It’s close to everything. It’s low-key; it’s all about getting home and staying at home,” Grant says, adding that its agrarian character will remain largely unchanged because of strict building restrictions. The properties—typically two acres—are priced similarly to ones of the same size in Southampton and East Hampton villages, Grant says. He notes that the most desirable and exclusive properties are off Daniels Lane. SAG HARBOR

An old whaling village that retains much of its original low-key architecture and charm, Sag Harbor, which is about five miles north of Sagaponack on Gardiners Bay, is another prime Hamptons hot spot. Prices start at $2 million to $3 million, according to Grant, who adds that typically buyers pay $5 million to $6 million for a half-acre property. “Prices have increased dramatically,” he says, “but there’s not much land. It’s more urbanized than other areas of the Hamptons.” Most of the houses, Grant says, are 18th-century clapboards, what he calls traditional Hamptons style. “The area is understated,” he says. “It’s great for boating.” The heart of the village and Madison Street are considered prime addresses, according to Grant.

How does a photographer become a rug designer almost overnight?

Rug design was never on my radar. I got a call, out of the blue, from Kyle Bunting, who told me he was a fan of my work, and particularly, the design of my Marfa home, and wanted to know if there was a possibility we could collaborate on a rug collection. So, we met, and I was kind of like, “are you sure? I’ve never really designed anything before.” And he was like, “you know, I’m sure I really want to do this with you.” Kyle saw something that I didn’t see. How did you come up with the designs for the collection?

Kyle was so, so patient with me, because I felt like I had a creative block for eight months. I was really struggling to come up with an idea, a pattern for design, a concept, a story, a narrative, and how it would represent me. Nothing ever felt right, and I was starting to doubt myself. And then, while on an airplane, all of a sudden, in like 10 minutes, I sketched out the design. And it was like, “wow, that’s it.” It was so simple. Kyle’s office kept coming back with alternative versions and I always went back to this original sketch—it’s the design for the rugs that we have now. How would you describe the design?

It’s kind of based on a sense of nostalgia, or what I think a rug should look like. I ended up thinking about all the rugs that my parents had, the rugs that I grew up with, or the rugs that I’ve seen and liked, so it’s really classic in design—like a traditional rug with a little bit of Art Deco influence running through it. If you were to take a really good, classic Persian rug and eliminate the tiny little patterns within it and just made it about the broad shapes, I think you could kind of start to see where there could be some similarities. It’s deconstructed and both modern and nostalgic at the same time. Furniture looks good on these rugs because it can line up on them and feel very ordered. The design is very symmetrical.

lipping through top design publications, you’ve likely been transported Fby the images shot by Douglas

Friedman. The architecture and interiors photographer, who’s also famed for his highly conceptualized portraiture (think: model in ball gown flipping eggs), has brought countless homes to life through his lens on the pages of Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. While he’s perfected the art of interiors photography in his own distinctive way, Friedman has another passion as of late—rug design. He’s joined forces with Kyle Bunting, who’s known for his decorative, handcrafted hide rugs made in Austin, Texas, on a new line of rugs called Atlas, which launched in January 2020. He spoke with us from the his Marfa, Texas, home—chicken coop and all.

Douglas Friedman, shown on this page, has turned his attention from photography to rug design with Kyle Bunting.

How are they made?

Kyle is a genius. He works with this incredible Italian cowhide. It’s not the kind of hide that’s shorn; it’s a much finer material that feels as soft as fur. The rugs are constructed like mosaic tiles. Small pieces are cut by a laser and bonded to a base by hand. It’s painstaking and time consuming because the seams are important. They have to be super tight. And the nature of the hide makes them easily livable. The same DNA of the original pattern is in all of the rugs. I was so satisfied with the look, I wanted to keep the designs the same. For me, they’re absolutely the ideal expression of what rugs should be. It’s more about customizing the sizes and dimensions for clients and using different color schemes. The first colorways are based on what I see out of my window from my Marfa home—the colors in the landscape and the environment, in the sky, and the sunsets and the sunrises. My living room rugs are so similar to what’s right outside the window, there’s no distraction. I wanted the view to be seen first, and once you grapple with the insane beauty of what’s outside the windows, then you rest your eyes on the inside, and there’s this similarity. 31

Set against the blue of the water in Miami, this nearly all-white room designed by Phillip Thomas really pops.


here’s a restrained beauty about an all-white space; it’s a sophisticated refinement that awes in its absence of color. ­­­­­­T And, depending on accent features, furniture, and fabrics, the

effect can feel warm and welcoming or modern and minimalist. “White spaces are serene and provide a neutral setting for other more subtle items in the room to shine,” says Amalia Graziani of Noor Property Group, a Manhattan-based real estate development firm. They also create a blank canvas, says Phillip Thomas, founder and principal of Phillip Thomas Inc. in New York City. “You can build a story within the space,” he says. Creating an inspired design is all in the details. VARY THE SHADES

Playing with different tones of white and cream can keep the 32

room from feeling too stark, says Rome, Italy-based architect and designer Achille Salvagni. He suggests incorporating prints that combine shades of either white or cream on the walls, in the upholstery, or even on the floor. “Small or subtle pops of color or metallics introduced into the room, that come from art and accessories, also add warmth and a level of sophistication,” Salvagni says. “I like to use a warmer white on the walls paired with brighter trim and a cooler ceiling,” Graziani says. “Subtle contrast makes the space feel much more inviting.”

Opposite page: Kris Tamburello; this page from top: Kris Tamburello; Haylei Smith


Warming up the room and adding dimension is a matter of texture. “Texture is key in keeping a white space from lacking soul,” Thomas says. “Texture reflects light—both natural and artificial—in different ways, and light excites the eye.” Salvagni prefers materials such as cashmere, boucle, sheepskin, and mohair, particularly for upholstery, to add warmth, depth, and a sense of comfort. For carpeting, he opts for a plush, warm-toned silk. “I love the idea of complementing a white ceiling and all-white walls with a printed carpet that combines different shades of white and cream,” he says. Hand-knotted and handwoven rugs add sophistication and a sense of luxury to a space, says Lance Thomas, co-founder of Room Service, a fine furniture and interior design firm in Lake Charles, La. “I personally like to contrast the style of my rug to the furniture that sits on top of it,” he says. Graziani prefers chunky sisal rugs for warmth and texture to offset cool walls. She also loves the contrast of a rough linen weave alongside softer materials such as cashmere and boucle. But texture is not just found in textiles. Lance Thomas recommends wallpapering walls in suede or introducing a lacquered finish on a side table. FOCUS ON ACCENTS

Finishes such as metal play a significant role in achieving an impactful all-white space, Lance Thomas says. “Matte black or iron hardware and fixtures can add stark contrast and a contemporary spin on the space,” he adds. And contrast is a powerful tool. “When the eye sees the truest white and the truest black in a space, all of the other variations of white become richer.” Given the neutral nature of white

walls, there’s a chance to play with interesting hardware and doors, Graziani says. “Sharp stainless door handles, antique glass knobs, or a bold door will shine in an otherwise understated room,” she says. For instance, in one of the white rooms she’s designed, she added three sets of double French doors in place of conventional doors to add depth and reflection. “Adding structural details such as bold beams, chair rails, and paneling also elevates the space and creates dimension,” she says. And don’t forget about greenery, “not only for its vibrant color, but to add a sense of warmth, calm, and fragrance to a space,” Lance Thomas says. Layering is another important tool. “An all-white space looks best when it feels collected over time,” he adds. For example, a mid-century coffee table would play nicely on top of an antique rug. Or, he recommends framing a vintage piece of art in a contemporary lacquered frame. His other musts: a healthy mix of patterns, patina, and personality, wood furniture, at least one antique—even in a contemporary space—as well as a custom-tailored piece. “When a space feels collected, it creates intention,” Lance Thomas says. In terms of shapes, Salvagni suggests round and organic forms for sofas, chaises, coffee and dining tables, and even carpets. “These round and organic shapes will accentuate the coziness of the room,” he says. LET THERE BE LIGHT

“Lighting is probably the best way to add another dimension and elemental layering,” Salvagni says. The first thing he looks for is to add warm-hued lighting as well as an appropriately proportioned light fixture. “This will create the dimension needed to enhance the ambiance in the room, and when done correctly, always helps to keep a room feeling warm and looking elegantly stylish,” he explains. “Ambient lighting is a wonderful way to intentionally create depth through highlights and shadows,” Lance Thomas adds. “I love the way a pair of wall sconces can cast shadows onto the ceiling and highlight slivers of surrounding furniture.” Incorporating multiple sources of light helps a room feel more inviting, Graziani says. “Instead of relying on a central pendant or chandelier, incorporating soft secondary sources of light, such as picture lighting and task lamps, can make a big difference,” she says.

A white space designed by Phillip Thomas, at top, feels decidedly upscale. Black and white contrast well in a room by Lance Thomas, at bottom.

over the world of fine art, yet they’re as different from one another as the places that formed them. One of Australia’s leading artists of the past century, Nolan is often linked with his hometown of Melbourne. Meanwhile, Homer, perhaps America’s most iconic landscape painter, is inextricably linked to coastal Maine. Then there’s af Klint, the Swedish artist and mystic known for her abstract pieces, who lived a life of spiritual yearning in Stockholm. Here’s a look at how these three artists were inspired by the destinations they’re most associated with.

The work of Hilma af Klint, shown above, is always on display at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.



Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was more than an artist to her devotees. She was something akin to a mystic, one who, according to numerous scholars and academics, was among the first Western artists to produce abstract art. Through striking compositions of shapes and symbols, af Klint presented philosophical and spiritual concepts in physical form on canvas. She showed an early aptitude for visual art and completed her schooling in Stockholm. She studied at what’s now known as Konstfack (the University of Arts, Crafts, and Design), where she focused on portraits and landscapes, and then the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (among the first European institutions of its kind to admit women). She was awarded a scholarship in the form of a small shared studio in Stockholm and honed her talents working on landscapes, botanical drawings, and portraits. At the Royal Academy, she met Anna Cassel, the first of the four women with whom she later worked in The Five (De Fem), a group of artists who shared a similar vision and regularly engaged in paranormal activities including organized séances. Through her work with the group, af Klint developed her idiosyncratic style with a keen focus on spirituality. The secretive artist never knew fame during her lifetime; she refused to show her abstract pieces to her contemporaries and exhibited her works only a handful of times, mainly at spiritual conferences and gatherings. She specified that her work should be kept secret

for at least 20 years after her death. Af Klint’s collection of more than 1,200 abstract paintings is owned and managed by the Hilma af Klint Foundation in Stockholm. The city’s Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art) displays a selection of her works on a continuous basis. Over the years, the museum has broken down the symbolism contained in her work and peeled back the curtains behind her enigmatic persona by hosting exhibitions and events, including the 2019 world premiere of Hilma, an opera about her spiritualistic work and hidden art.

Winslow Homer (1836-1910), a landscape painter and printmaker, remains best known for his marine subjects. After achieving success—first in commercial illustration, then in oil paintings—with stops in major cities such as New York, Paris, and his hometown of Boston, Homer transitioned over to watercolors and landscapes. In 1881, Homer embarked on an 18-month visit to Cullercoats, a town on the rugged northeastern coast of England, and was deeply affected as he witnessed the residents’ dealings with nature. The artist depicted the town’s fishermen and

women as they battled the elements, showing them set against the unforgiving cliffs, rocks, and mountains. In 1883, Homer moved to Prouts Neck, a fishing village set on a rocky peninsula located within the town of Scarborough, in southern Maine, where he lived in the remodeled carriage house at his family’s oceanfront estate. Over the following years, Homer painted some of his most famous scenes, including Undertow (1886), which depicts a dramatic rescue of two female bathers by two male lifeguards, and Eight Bells (1886), which examines two sailors and their relationship with the sea. Homer’s original Prouts Neck studio, where he lived and painted until his death in 1910, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965, and in 2006 it was purchased by the Portland Museum of Art (PMA). After a six-year renovation project that restored the building to how it appeared during Homer’s life, the museum began offering tours to the public. The studio’s most distinct feature is the oceanfront balcony running the width of the building. The artist created more than a billion dollars worth of art at the studio. Winslow fanatics also flock to the PMA, whose ever-expanding Homer collection spans the artist’s entire career and includes items such as graphite drawings, book illustrations, and wood engravings.

Widely acknowledged as Australia’s most inventive and influential artist of the 20th century, prolific artist Sidney Nolan (1917-92) remains best known for his paintings of legends from Australian history, most famously Ned Kelly, the notorious bushranger and outlaw. His series of works about Kelly served as meditations on themes of injustice, love, and betrayal, while offering a new depiction of the intimidating Australian landscape. After finishing his schooling around his hometown of Melbourne, Nolan spent much of the 1940s at Heide (now the Heide Museum of Modern Art), located in the suburb of Bulleen. Heide was the vision of John and Sunday Reed, passionate supporters and collectors of modern Australian art. The couple opened their home to like-minded individuals such as Nolan. The Heide Museum of Modern Art’s impressive collection includes some 150 pieces by Nolan. To gain a deeper perspective on Nolan’s incredibly varied output, curious types visit the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) in Canberra and the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne. Each museum holds dozens of key Nolan works in their collection.

he fabled Museum Row on Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile soon will be redefined by a jaw-dropping addition: Renzo Piano’s T Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

The 300,000-square-foot academy, the nation’s first largescale museum dedicated exclusively to the art, science, craft, business, and history of film, will be housed in the 1939 May Company Building, a historic landmark at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue. The academy museum is one of more than 120 projects, including the Kansai International Airport Terminal in Osaka, Japan, and the New York Times Building in Manhattan, that the 82-year-old Pritzker Prize-laureate and his Renzo Piano Building Workshop, which has offices in Genoa, Paris, and New York City, have designed over four decades. The team renovated and restored the interior and exterior of the iconic May building, which has been renamed the Saban, after its benefactors, producer/businessman Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, who is a former senior advisor to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. Piano’s team replaced the Saban’s 1946 additions with an eye-arresting structure they dubbed simply as The Sphere. The Sphere is a building shaped like a giant ball that hovers off the ground, similar to a spaceship. It features a 1,000-seat theater, a 288-seat theater for special screenings, and a dramatic rooftop terrace facing the iconic Hollywood sign. “The Sphere building is a form that seems to lift off the ground into the perpetual, imaginary voyage through space and time that is moviegoing,” Piano said in a news release. “By connecting these two experiences, we create something that is itself like a movie. You go from sequence to sequence, from the exhibition galleries to the film theater and the terrace, with everything blending into one experience.” Noting that there’s a “positive tension” between The Sphere and the Saban, architect Mark Carroll, partner in charge of the project, says that “a big part of the design was to understand

the exact distance between them—they stand 40 feet from one another in a dialogue between old and new, memory and history, contemporary and future.” The spherical shape was chosen, says Luigi Priano, associate in charge, because “it is a clear and identifiable object that detaches and does not compete with the architecture of the Saban. And its circular interior plan is conducive to a compact, participatory seating arrangement with good acoustics and visibility to the projection screen.” The Sphere, he adds, conveys a “sense of wonder and magic.” Part of that magic comes from the engineering, Carroll says. “It’s isolated from the ground by eight seismic discs that cut the forces of an earthquake and can absorb 30 inches of movement in every direction; this allows the structure of the dome to be incredibly slim, and all this is happening with only four pillars touching the ground.” As part of the project, the Piano team restored the limestone façade of the Saban, replacing some 35% of its

cylinder’s 350,000 gold-leaf mosaic tiles with replicas from the original manufacturer, Orsini of Venice, Italy. The Saban will have three floors of exhibition space, plus a ground floor with a restaurant, gift shop, and gallery. The idea, Piano says, was to create “an urban and civic character.” It is made of concrete, glass, and steel-reinforced concrete, the same materials Piano used to tie the two buildings together architecturally. The academy is a repository for everything from ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz to the only surviving shark mold from Jaws. Exhibits will draw from a collection of 12 million photographs, 230,000 moving-image items, 80,000 screenplays, 61,000 posters, and 104,000 pieces of production art.

The Saban building, below, is adorned by gold-leaf mosaic tiles from Italy. The project was spearheaded by starchitect Renzo Piano, shown at top left.

here’s a romance to Middle Eastern cuisine, since the most notable T dishes from this region—by their very

origins—evoke an old-world feel. And there’s a sophistication about this regional food that has only become more evident in recent years. “The interest in this cuisine is getting stronger and stronger,” says Einat Admony, chef/owner of Balaboosta in New York City and co-author of Shuk: From Market to Table, the Heart of Israeli Home Cooking. “Middle Eastern food is very craveable. It’s exciting, colorful, and very vegetable-forward.” There’s also been a retelling of the Middle Eastern cuisine story that’s been coupled with modern tweaks on kabob and shawarma recipes and dishes that are now delicately punctuated with Za’atar spice and harissa paste. Best of all, there are endless ways to experiment with the region’s unique dishes, whether that’s mejadra, a medley of rice and lentils spiced with cumin and topped with fried onions or fattoush—essentially a bread salad—and ingredients, such as freekeh, an ancient whole-wheat grain that is considered the new quinoa, and labneh, yogurt cheese. At Balaboosta, for example, the menu has always focused on new takes on favorite dishes, including such noted plates as short rib sabzi with handrolled couscous. And, Admony even found ways to feature Bamba—a peanut and rice snack that’s very popular in Israel. “One of the favorites at the restaurant is fried cauliflower with lemon, currants, pine nuts, and parsley, which I top with peanut tahini and crushed Bamba,” she says.

“I love to take stuff I grew up with and use it in a way that I’ve never seen before.” “We’re also seeing chefs taking ‘grandma’s recipe’ and creating finely plated dishes,” says Inbal Baum, who runs Delicious Israel, a company based in Tel Aviv that creates personalized walking and cooking tours. “At Mashya, a restaurant in Tel Aviv, the kitchen is run by a chef who was deeply influenced by his Moroccan grandmother,” Baum says. “The dishes are exquisitely fine-plated versions of Moroccan and Arab cuisine, using entirely local Israeli produce and products.” That same chef is also known for a dish made with arugula, labneh, Medjool dates, pineapple, and avocado honey blossom and a sea bass fillet with freekeh risotto, burnt tomatoes, and tarragon. “These are real ingredients done simply,” she says. Jessica Randhawa, the head chef and recipe creator at The Forked Spoon, a family-friendly recipe site, says Middle Eastern dishes have always been fun to experiment with due to their bright flavor profile and healthy ingredients. “I tend to remake these dishes in time-saving formats,” she says. “A good example is my chicken shawarma meal prep recipe, which is a great way to cook ahead and also have an enjoyable meal. Another good time-saver is my slow cooker harissa lamb tacos, which present traditional harissa sauce in a new and exciting way.” Some chefs recommend using a hero ingredient, such as tehina, and reconfiguring it in myriad ways. “I love the recipe for our quick tehina sauce because it creates this pure unctuous sesame paste that’s so versatile,” says Michael Solomonov, owner of several award-winning Middle Eastern restaurants in Philadelphia. “Traditional Middle Eastern dishes use tehina all of the time, whether it’s drizzled on eggplant with some pomegranate seeds, tossed with beets, or simply just spread on top of chicken schnitzel.” And, if you’re seeking a versatile dessert, look no further than a tehina milkshake. “This is a modern take on such a classic staple ingredient,” he says. “It’s simple: Just mix tehina, almond milk, and sugar. We add a flavored syrup of your choice—as of late, I love our newest date-flavored syrup—and blend it up into a smooth, creamy drink that’s perfect for summer.” In the end, preparing Middle Eastern food at home is all about getting creative. “Hummus and tehina are so quintessentially traditional, but it’s always fun to dress it up,” Solomonov says. “A great way to give hummus a fresh twist is by playing around with toppings. I recommend using what you have on hand. In Israel, people use the local produce they have readily available. Check out your local farmer’s market, find what’s seasonal and fresh in your region, and top your hummus.”

Ask a Swede who’s left home what they miss most about Sweden, and “they’d say candy,” says Selim Adira, one of the owners of BonBon, a Scandinavian sweet shop on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The outpost features more than 160 types of candy, mostly from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, with a bit of Norwegian added to the mix. While sour candy is most in-demand, licorice is the star. Adira says most patrons up for trying the chewy treat eventually become fans of Scandinavian licorice, which ranges from sweet to salty. BonBon ships worldwide, and their candies are available for delivery locally. SCANDINAVIAN BUTIK

“Saturday Sweets”—encourages Swedes to “Lfeastördagsgodis”—or on pick-and-mix candy one day

each week. With roots in the 1950s, the tradition was an attempt to curb overindulging in sweets and preventing tooth decay—reaffirming that Scandinavia has long had an infatuation with sugary treats. In recent years, however, Nordic candy culture has crossed borders. Sate your sugar craving at these five shops across the U.S., all stocking and shipping Scandinavian sweet treats.

Sweetish Candy (2)

Sweetish in Lancaster, Pa., features a range of candies— and pick-and-mix containers—shipped from Scandinavia.


The first Scandinavian candy store in the U.S., Sockerbit opened locations in New York’s West Village and West Hollywood in Los Angeles. The shop’s name translates to “sugar lump”—but unlike American candy, Scandinavian sweets are made from non-GMO ingredients and natural sweeteners and colors. The expansive pick-and-mix wall is the main feature at Sockerbit, showcasing bins of peppermint pillows, Swedish fish, sour fruit candies, and a tempting smorgasbord of flavors from fruity to salty. Customers can also order through and purchase their favorites in quarter-pound increments.

This Norwalk, Conn., shop and cafe is a treasure trove of all things Scandinavian with a section devoted to—you guessed it—candy. Denmark natives and friends Doris Levene and Marianne Beresford launched their Main Street store in 2010, having no idea they’d welcome shoppers from outside the state. While Scandinavian Butik attracts its share of Connecticuters, Nordic foodies, folks with Scandinavian heritage, and those who want to learn more about the culture have also become customers. The store ships to all 50 states, too. SWEETISH CANDY

A trip to Malmö, Sweden, inspired owner Tyler Graybeal to found this Lancaster, Pa., shop in 2019. Like many Scandinavian candy stores, the boutique’s pick-and-mix collection is the heart of it, bins brimming with marshmallows, drops, and sour candies. Graybeal, who called on his technical theater background to design the space, says he imported a pickand-mix wall structure from Sweden and a line of Scandinavian and Nordic products. The initial sugar-filled offerings, though, have grown. “We started with 64 pick-and-mix bins, and we now have over 100 choices,” he says. Sweetish’s best sellers include Malaco Pastel Fish, Fazer Tutti Frutti, sour skulls, and the classic Kex and Daim bars. Sweetish’s potpourri of sweets is also available to purchase online. GOODIO CHOCOLATE

A step away from the usual pick-and-mix candies, Goodio handcrafts vegan, organic, gluten-free chocolate in Helsinki, Finland. Started by Jukka Peltola, Goodio uses pure cacao harvested in Peru, Ecuador, and the Congo. The product is stone ground for three days to preserve its rich nutrients, then mostly organic and wild ingredients such as dried cornflower, geranium, and birch leaves are incorporated for flavor. Thereafter, it is sweetened with Indonesian and Sri Lankan coconut palm sugar. Goodio ships to Europe and the U.S. and is available in brick-and-mortar grocery and specialty stores in Scandinavia and the states. 41

or those looking for a high-end car that doesn’t rely on gas, there are Fplenty of intoxicating electric vehicles

available for the luxury and highperformance customer. Some have both—a cosseting interior and ride, plus stunning acceleration and top speed. 2020 PORSCHE TAYCAN

Starting at the top, the Taycan (formerly known as the Mission E) is, like the Rapide E, the company’s first fully electric car. And though Porsche executives deny it, Tesla is squarely in the company’s sights. In this case, the threat is credible. The four-door sedan, quite curvy in the manner of Tesla’s Model S, is offered in three models, beginning with

this space—the electric crossover was on the road by the latter half of 2018. There are three models of I-Pace— the S (starting at $69,106), the SE ($73,371), and the HSE ($82,949). The three models have the same propulsion layout, using a 90-kilowatt-hour battery and two electric motors. A drawback of the big battery is long plug-in times, but a fast-charge port is standard. Choosing the SE over the S adds such features as leather seats, upmarket LED headlights, bigger wheels, and more standard safety assistance.

Opposite page: Ford Motor Co.; this page: Porsche


the entry-level Taycan 4S (starting at $103,800), and proceeding to the Turbo ($150,900) and the Turbo S ($184,000). It can reach 60 miles per hour in just 2.6 seconds, and tops off at 162 miles per hour. Range could be better—it’s 192 miles, compared with 326 miles for a Tesla Model S Performance edition with 21-inch wheels. This would matter less if Porsche had anything comparable to Tesla’s global fast-charging network, but it doesn’t. Still, commuters with even a 60-mile trip one way could use their Taycan comfortably without recourse to public charging. 2020 JAGUAR I - PACE

The I-Pace was the first challenger EV in

For 2020, Audi adds a Sportback configuration to the e-tron line. Opt for this one if you value aesthetics over practicality (or travel light). Zero to 60 miles per hour comes up in 5.5 seconds. Range is an issue in the fairly heavy e-tron, with just 204 miles in the regular model (and 218 in the Sportback). The Premium Plus model starts at $74,800, and the Prestige at $79,100. (The Sportback starts at $77,400; a special-edition model goes for $88,495.) The Prestige adds a driver assistance package, heads-up display, upgraded seats with a massage function, power door closers, and air-quality enhancement. 2021 MUSTANG MACH - E

This electric crossover doesn’t look like any Mustang we’ve seen before, but it is a pretty neat package. The pony is really galloping in ways that will help you forget Steve McQueen’s Bullitt car, with up to 459 horsepower and 612

pound-feet of torque in the GT model. That’s enough for zero to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds. Buyers have the choice of five trim levels (Select, Premium, California Route 1, GT, and GT Performance Edition), and front- or (with two motors) all-wheel drive. There are two battery sizes, 75.7 or 98.8 kilowatt-hours. Premium might be a good choice—it adds improved fast-charging, bigger wheels, a top-of-the-line Bang & Olufsen sound system, a big sunroof, and a power liftgate. The Mach-E will go on sale in late 2020 and is priced between $44,995 and more than $60,000. TESLA MODEL Y

The new Tesla is a crossover based on the Model 3 and is smaller than the Model X. There are currently two versions, Long Range AWD ($52,990) and Performance ($60,990). As the name implies, both versions go the distance—316 miles for the Performance, 315 for the Long Range. The Y is a practical SUV—the second row of seats folds flat, and a third row is optional. Maximum cargo capacity is 68 cubic feet. The Performance version has a blistering zero-to-60 time of 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 145 miles per hour. Those specs drop down to a 4.8-second zero-to-60 time in the Long Range model, and a top speed of 135 mph. Want more? An upgrade for the Performance iteration will get the car to 155 mph (but also reduce range to 280 miles).

ho says you have to go to a gym to get exercise? Or even venture outW side the house? From virtual training to

live streaming, luxury at-home fitness is on the rise.


Health-minded homeowners are converting basements and garages, and allocating square footage in their houses to state-of-the-art workout space. And for equipment choices, the options are endless. Fitness enthusiasts furnish home gyms with NordicTrack equipment, as well as free weights, benches, yoga mats, jumping ropes, and punching bags, among other accessories. Matrix Fitness features a portfolio of gym-quality cardio and strength equipment including ascent trainers and treadmills. But things have gotten significantly more high-tech—and interactive, too. Cycling devotees work up a sweat on Peloton bikes, which offer live streaming and prerecorded classes, as well as instructions from meditation to toning. And there’s a new game in town, as the at-home bike from SoulCycle was released in March. ALL- IN - ONE FITNESS SYSTEMS

For compact spaces, brands like Bowflex manufacture compact multigyms— machines for all muscle groups—but Jennifer Cohen, a fitness authority based in Los Angeles, swears by Tonal, a wall-hung screen with adjustable arms, enabling a full-body workout. It is “by far the only piece of fitness equipment you will ever need,” she says. “Tonal uses AI technology [artificial intelligence] that customizes your workouts and resistance level based on your level of strength and fitness.” Similarly, the interactive Mirror touts itself as “the nearly invisible home gym,” providing every exercise session imaginable while occupying little space. Users hang or prop the streamlined mirror against a wall and have access to more than 10,000 on-demand classes. Peloton (2)


Top studios around the world now live stream everything from Pilates and spin classes, to yoga and prenatal workouts.

Content is refreshed weekly, with dozens of classes added each month. You’ll get personalized programs and real-time progress tracking. People can stream from the app to their phone or computer, or connect it to a TV through Airplay or Chromecast. VIRTUAL ONE- ON - ONE TRAINING

According to Meg Julian, a Boston-based Precision Nutrition Certified Personal Trainer, a trend that has been growing in popularity is online personal training. Services run the gamut, “from individualized workout programs and semiweekly or daily accountability check-ins, and nutritional help to full Zoom sessions,” she says. Julian explains that online personal training offers “progressive programs, not just workouts to burn calories, but ways to actually improve and see results.” To find a trainer, she suggests searching Instagram for hashtags such as #onlinepersonaltraining and #onlinefitnesscoach and visiting sites such as and YOGA AND MEDITATION ROOMS

Intense exercise works for some, but other fitness buffs prefer a more laid-back approach. Yoga and meditation rooms are an excellent way to decompress while staying physically fit. These Zenlike spaces can be a dedicated place in the home or even a corner carved out of a bedroom. Whatever section of the house you choose, it should be uncluttered, with plenty of fresh air and natural light to help clear the mind. Introduce live greenery, earthy textiles, soft music, and a pleasant scent or aromatherapy. With the plethora of apps available, at-home yoga and meditation sessions have never been easier. Both Apple Health and GoogleFit supported, Daily Yoga features more than 100 yoga and meditation classes for yogis at all levels. Apps like Calm, praised for its soothing background music, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques, and Aura, which provides three-minute meditations—ideal post-yoga— and life-coaching sessions, can enhance the at-home yoga and meditation experience.

celebrated the 90th birthday of her grandfather, Jean-Jacques Cartier, at his home in the south of France. While rummaging through the wine cellar, she stumbled across a trunk full of old letters that revealed how four generations built the Cartier jewelry business. The discovery ultimately led to her book, The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family Behind the Jewelry Empire, published in November 2019. Cartier Brickell undertook a globetrotting research trip, tracking down key players and uncovering details about how the Cartier brothers kept their business thriving through wars, revolutions, and economic upheaval. “I felt inspired, and even duty-bound, to keep the story alive,” she says. RESIDE® caught up with the author to find out about her favorite jewelry and fashion-related reads. DIAMOND JEWELRY: 700 YEARS OF GLORY AND GLAMOUR BY DIANA SCARISBRICK

“Through many, many diamond jewels (and the illustrations are wonderful), Diana Scarisbrick takes us on a dazzling journey through time. A veritable feast for the eyes, and a truly illuminating lens through which to view history.” THE GLITTER AND THE GOLD BY CONSUELO VANDERBILT

“I love this peek into the life of Consuelo Vanderbilt. Like many ‘dollar princesses’ of her time, Consuelo was shipped over the Atlantic with her dollars, dreams, and cases of dresses and jewels in the late 19th century (rather against her will) to marry an English duke and prop up his family’s finances. The Vanderbilts were big jewelry buyers, and those mind-blowing gems feature in her Golden Age memoir. More than that though, Consuelo offers

an incredible window into the life of a Belle Epoque Duchess. A great read.” TENDER IS THE NIGHT BY F. SCOTT FITZGERALD

“This is a novel rather than a jewelry or fashion book, but I made an exception as there’s nothing like hearing about the Roaring ’20s—all that seductive glamour, style, and energy­—from someone who was actually there. [It’s] set in Paris and the Riviera at a time when, just around the corner from where the protagonist Dick Diver is holidaying, Louis Cartier was coming up with those elegant Art Deco jewels that remain so sought after today. Oh, and there’s also a rather dramatic duel which— bizarrely—echoes a real-life 1920s Cartier/Rothschild duel I discovered was proposed by a hot-headed Louis after he had been snubbed at a party.” THE ROYAL JEWELS BY SUZY MENKES

“This is a classic—absolutely crammed full of images and stories and unexpected insights about the English royal family and their jewels. I’d heard about the designs and making of some of Cartier royal gems from my grandfather (and the odd anecdote like how he had fallen asleep in Buckingham Palace waiting to see the royals and had to be woken—mortified—by the Queen Mother herself!) but this book placed that all in colorful context.” JEWELS OF THE ROMANOVS: FAMILY & COURT BY STEFANO PAPI

“One of the most fun parts about researching jewels for my book was following their trail through time. So many of those that passed through Cartier’s hands in the 20th century—and ended up on famous film stars or royals or heiresses—started out in the treasure troves of the Romanovs. This book is filled with those staggering jewels and the regal figures who wore them.”

Francesca Cartier Brickell, shown above, has been influenced by everything from novels to historical tomes.

e all know the expected beachside drinks: the daiquiri, the piña colada, W and Mai Tai. But, for the elite group of

bartenders serving patrons of the world’s top luxury beach resorts, such sippers are a bit boring. Within the palette of tropical flavors appropriate for a beachside cocktail­—fruity, bright, citrusy, sweet— one finds infinitely more interesting combinations. RESIDE® consulted with bartenders from some of the world’s top beach resorts to learn how to make their favorite libations.


Shamsudin Rahman, head bartender at Banyan Tree Lang Co, favors the Bin An Sandy, a rum-based drink named after a picturesque stretch of beach near this award-winning resort on the central Vietnamese coast. 60 ml Bacardi rum 30 ml Grand Marnier 30 grams passion fruit 10 ml lychee syrup 30 ml lime juice 15 ml sugar syrup

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake well. Strain in tumbler and garnish with sliced passion fruit and lychee under a mini beach umbrella. Makes one serving.

Meliá Koh Samui


Carlos Hernández Robles of the Grand Velas Los Cabos in Mexico enjoys the Piacere. The name is Italian for “pleasure,” says the bartender, “an emotion both the guest and myself share together through the drink.” Robles invented it early in his career.

1.5 cups water 1.5 cups sugar 1 tbsp orange juice 8 sprigs of rosemary 2 cups mezcal 1.5 ounces aperol 1 ounce lime juice 3/4 ounce amber ale

Combine water, sugar, orange, and rosemary leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then stir until sugar dissolves. Simmer for one minute. Remove from heat and add the mezcal. Let the syrup steep for about 30 minutes, then let cool. In a cocktail shaker, combine the mezcal, aperol, lime juice, and ice. Shake for 15 seconds. Double-strain into a glass. Finish the cocktail with the amber ale. Stir until mixed. Makes one serving, but the mezcal infusion can be used for up to five drinks. SECRET PASSION

Saralee Laronde, bartender at the Secret Bay resort in Dominica, a sixstar, eco-friendly paradise, favors the Secret Passion, a blended drink with plenty of passion fruit. 1 large passion fruit 3 cups seedless watermelon 4 tbsp caster sugar handful of ice 75 ml vodka

Cut passion fruit and press its seeds and pulp in a small strainer to extract the juice. Add caster sugar to the juice and blend with ice. Set aside. Blend watermelon with ice separately. Equally divide the passion fruit juice into two glasses. Add watermelon mix to the passion fruit juice. Add the vodka on top of the drink and stir lightly. Garnish with a slice of watermelon. Makes one serving.


Sanyawit Santipornwit, mixologist and wine sommelier for Meliá Koh Samui, a new five-star resort in the Gulf of Thailand, favors the Almond Passion. 60 ml amaretto 30 ml Jim Beam 30 ml lime juice 30 grams of fresh young ginger, sliced 30 ml sugar syrup 30 ml ginger ale 1 almond slice

Muddle all the ingredients but the ginger ale and shake well. Put a handful of ice cubes into a tiki highball glass and pour in the mixture, topping it with ginger ale. Garnish with a sliced almond. Serves one.

The Almond Passion combines amaretto with ginger, lime, and other Thai flavors.
