WHAT’S NEW IN ART, ARCHITECTURE, AND DESIGN THE BLENDING OF ART AND SCIENCE, MULTIPLYING PRIMARY BEDROOM SUITES, AND THE RETURN OF LAID - BACK COTTAGE- STYLE INTERIORS
A primary suite—one of a pair—in a St. John home designed by Morgante Wilson Architects, at left. Klari Reis’ work includes hand-painted petri dishes, shown below; and a kitchen by KT2 Design, shown at bottom left, feels cottage chic.
rt is building on its scientific cred, residences are getting multiple A primary suites, and the down-to-earth
cottage look is back. Here are the latest trends in art, architecture, and design. ART
High-tech science has become a creative force in the art world. London-based artist Susan Aldworth explores the human identity, or as she puts it, “what makes us who we are,” in works that are in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, and Guy’s Hospital. Her interest in the “human mind, especially consciousness and our sense of self,” has led to collaborations with scientists. For her suite of prints Transience, she helped develop a technique to capture the authentic marks of the brain on an etching plate. And her large-scale installation Out of the Blue, comprising 106 antique garments embroidered with words spoken by epileptics and suspended from the ceiling, is moved by computer-programmed pulleys to correspond to the algorithms of electrical activity in an epileptic brain. “Science,” she says, “offers fascinating explanations and methodologies to explore the world with.” Klari Reis, a painter based in San Francisco, experiments with new materials and methods for her scientifically themed works. Using epoxy polymer, she explores its interaction with a variety of dyes and pigments, creating compositions on aluminum and wood panels that are characterized by colorful under-the-microscope smears, bumps, and stains. Her installation Hypochondria consists of hand-painted petri dishes mounted on walls in groupings of 30, 60, or 150 pieces. Reis, whose work is on
display in the Peninsula Shanghai hotel, Morgan Stanley in New York City, and the Stanford University Medical Center, collaborates with biomedical companies. She says she is “driven by curiosity and my desire to explore and document the natural and unnatural with a sense of wonder and joy.” ARCHITECTURE
In grand estates, one of the latest luxuries gaining popularity is a series of primary bedroom suites akin to a five-star hotel. Sometimes they are two separate suites; in other instances, a pair of bedrooms shares a central bathroom. Bobby McAlpine, the founder of the interior design and architecture firm that bears his name, says he’s designed several over the years. “When a pair of homeowners such as two couples or siblings share a vacation property, double master suites are the order of the day,” he says. “Other requests are for an upstairs master for use now and a ground-floor master for the homeowner to ‘age’ into in the future.” The look of two primary bedrooms can create a symmetry, he says. He created mirrored primary suites in his first house, a move he described as “smart and downright pretty.” For a client with a summer home in St. John, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Elissa Morgante, a co-principal of Morgante Wilson Architects in Evanston, Ill., designed a pair of main bedroom suites—one on the first floor and one on the second, creating chic symmetry. DESIGN
Cottage style—that humble-chic aesthetic—is making a comeback, particularly in accessory buildings such as carriage houses and pool houses. “The human scale of the cottage is a perfect mix of softened roof lines and quaint, well-scaled facades,” says architect Kevin ten Brinke, a principal of KT2 Design Group in Sudbury, Mass. With interiors characterized by painted or decorated furniture, weathered finishes, floral fabrics, a garden-in-bloom color palette, vintage features, and natural textural accents like baskets, cottage style is “a great way of exploring more fun expressive details that would otherwise be too informal for the main residence,” he notes.

MEDITERRANEAN - MINDED THIS STYLE OF HOME—WHICH IS FOUND AROUND THE WORLD — OFFERS THE ULTIMATE IN INDOOR - OUTDOOR LIVING
Set on a level piece of waterfront land, this villa in Mallorca has amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea. Having just been renovated, it combines traditional and modern styles and amenities.
Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty
editerranean-style architecture is the original indoor-outdoor living. With their terra-cotta-tiled roofs, stucco or stone facades, columns, ironwork, and arched doorways, these residences are designed to let the sea breezes in and bring the Mediterranean to mind. Extensive gardens, landscaped with native flora and fauna; pools and water features; vaulted ceilings for air circulation; and plenty of terraces, loggias, and balconies are also hallmarks of these houses. Many have the feel and amenities of resorts, but their natural materials and muted colors blend into the surroundings. “For years architects have been respecting the environment and they build and design their properties by integrating them into the landscape,” says agent Alejandra Vanoli of Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty. “The design of these houses helps control the temperature inside and is focused on spending time in the outdoor areas.” One classic example of the style can be found at an 18th-century stone villa at the foot of the Tramuntana mountain range on the Spanish island of Mallorca. The property is surrounded by almond plantations and citrus, fig, and olive trees, and the grounds feature palm trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus, and roses, according to the listing. There’s also a pool and a spa, lounging areas and pavilion, plus a small church, a painter’s studio, tennis courts, horse stables, and a riding arena on the estate. On the interior, which is about 6,500 square feet, features include arched doorways, exposed ceiling beams, fireplaces, and hardwood or tile floors. A loggia allows for outdoor dining, and there’s a courtyard as well. Sotheby’s is offering the property for €3.49 million. Although Mediterranean-style homes still put a premium on outdoor space, newer builds also take full advantage of technologies, such as integrated systems that monitor temperature. And many have more open-floor plans. “As some of the more modern trends are open spaces with abundant light, this is now applied in Mediterranean-style homes, too,” Vanoli says. “This is possible thanks to modern technologies to control the temperature inside.”

Located at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colo., this 16,000-square-foot home is reminiscent of some of the most beautiful Italian estates.
That’s certainly the case at another five-bedroom, five-bathroom home Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty is currently representing. The residence boasts a more open layout, extensive windows, and fewer arches inside the home. Outside, there’s ample patio space surrounding an infinity pool that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, plus a covered dining area and lounge and a garden. There’s even a private staircase from the primary bedroom suite to the pool area, according to the listing. It’s currently on the market for €6.25 million. Not surprisingly, the style has been adopted far outside Spain, Italy, and the other European countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. That’s the case at Casa de Cascadas in San José del Cabo, a city on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the 8,210-square-foot residence also features an infinity pool hovering over the water, and views from nearly everywhere on the property. It’s listed at just under US$6 million. “Every room in Casa de Cascadas features massive sparkling blue water views,” according to listing agent Katie Mariscal of Los Cabos Sotheby’s International Realty. “It has Mediterranean-style rounded windows and doorways, traditional columns, and original ceramic tile. Intimate areas and viewing terraces are scattered throughout the property.” The home also has wraparound terraces, 250 feet of water frontage that includes two beaches, two pools, four en-suite

bedrooms, a gym, an office, and a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment adjacent to the three-car garage. Mediterranean-style architecture has even migrated to areas without water views, notes Susie Langford of Coloradobased LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “In Colorado, there is a surplus of homes that are contemporary, Mid-Century Modern, and that have more rustic mountain aesthetics,” she says. “To have a Tuscan or Mediterranean-style home stands out and makes every day feel like a vacation with its more coastal design.” Langford recently listed a six-bedroom, 10-bathroom Mediterranean-style home in Parker, Colo. Its stone facade, terra-cotta roof, arched door frames, vaulted ceilings, and outdoor spaces—including a heated courtyard and elevated balcony space with an outdoor fireplace, hot tub, kitchenette, and lounge area—give that old Italian feel, she explains. But instead of azure seas, it has views of Rocky Mountain National Park, Pikes Peak, and the Colorado Golf Club on which it sits. Other features include an open layout, two customdesigned offices, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a two-bedroom guesthouse, and a four-car garage. There’s also a party room with two fireplaces, a marble-and-mahogany bar, and, of course, views of the greens and Pikes Peak in the distance. Meanwhile, in Florida, the Mediterranean style has had several incarnations, according to Dennis Carvajal of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. “It was very prevalent around here in the 1920s and 1930s,
inspired by Spanish and Italian villas and things like that,” he explains. “It made a big comeback in the late 1990s to 2008 or 2009. And then I think it was overdone.” The residences of the early aughts were darker, more formal, and compartmentalized, according to Carvajal. But when those properties are updated with open space and lighter color palettes, they are as popular as ever. “A lot of those homes sat on the market because people didn’t like the style. For a while there, I thought they were actually incredibly undervalued,” he says. “You take those homes and you give them a more contemporary twist—paint them white, make the interiors much more light and bright—and they’re a huge hit. I mean, people see them and they love them.” One of Carvajal’s current listings is a villa dating to the 1920s located on nearly three acres, one of the largest non-waterfront plots in Miami’s Coconut Grove. The home has been modernized, but retains the classic roof, arched doorways, and indoor-outdoor living indicative of Mediterranean-style architecture. Offered at US$17.5 million, it includes eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, plus two offices, a gym, and a loggia leading to the four-car garage. The estate also features a reflection pool surrounded by thousands of native trees and plants in its botanical garden by landscape architect Raymond Jungles. “The grounds are incredible,” Carvajal says. “There are waterfalls, koi ponds, observation decks. It’s just amazing, for lack of a better word.”
This historic Mallorca home, shown below, which features a large park as well as views of the Tramuntana Mountains, dates back to the 18th century. It offers horse riding and tennis courts.

MINIMALISM — BUT MAKE IT WARM HOW TO PULL OFF A SLEEK LOOK THAT STILL FEELS COZY

hen you think “minimalism,” chances are, in the literal sense, very little comes to mind. And what you do see may be a sterile picture. While the idea of minimalism in décor certainly has its merits (freedom from clutter, simplicity, a spacious feel), for many the concept—and achieving it—may seem unapproachable. But what if you could evoke a minimalist feel that was also inviting? “Many people have a misconception that minimalism and starkness are the same thing. That’s not true,” says Ximena Rodriguez, principal and director of interior design at CetraRuddy in New York. “Minimalism and warmth do not have to be contradictory principles. For us, a neutral color palette, materials, and textures are the building blocks of warm minimalism,” she says. At its core, and when designed well, a minimalist home offers a calming environment and a sense of serenity, Rodriguez says. “A cleaner environment creates more space for your mind to concentrate on positive ideas, goals, or tasks.” Making it feel warm and welcoming is a matter of thoughtful restraint. As Michael Rath, CEO, owner, and director of design services at Trilogy Partners in Frisco, Colo., says, “The path to simplicity is a careful inventory of what is most important and what is not, and that which is becomes the place, and that which is not has no place.”
here and there. He looks to calming contrasts as well, such as lighter straight-grained wood finishes with a charcoal gray backdrop. To maintain a sleek and consistent vibe, and promote a cohesive flow, Nina Magon, of Nina Magon Studio in Houston, uses a trio of hues that are similar in shade and tone and incorporates a range of tonal textures. “To create visual layering that adds warmth and subtle richness, stick to a certain group of complementary hues and bring in a range of different textures and fabrics for visual interest,” Magon says.
Nina Magon sticks to complementary hues and textures to create interesting minimalism, shown on opposite page. Below: A home for sale in Palm Springs has Mid-Century Modern minimalist style down pat.
CAREFULLY SELECT THE COLOR PALETTE
While it seems standard practice, minimalist spaces needn’t be stark white. “Color has a big impact on mood, and we’re seeing a movement away from brighter whites and toward warmer neutral tones that offer a soothing effect,” Rodriguez says. Similarly, architect Elisabeth Post-Marner, principal at Spacesmith in New York, prefers to use quiet colors and textured neutrals, which instill a sense of calm. “Keeping the palette ‘quiet’ allows you to combine different colors,” she says. Minimalist spaces don’t need to be monochromatic, either. Post-Marner opts for a tonal vibe or uses colors in the same family. For furniture, this might mean using cherry and walnut finishes, which live in the same midbrown family or a range of neutral tones and textures that complement one another. Rath also goes for neutrals but adds in a burst of color

Texture is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make a space feel more inviting. “Mixing texture is essential to creating a warm and interesting space,” says Samantha Gallacher, co-founder of IG Workshop, a Miami-based interior design lab and founder of Art+Loom, a line of handcrafted rugs. Think textiles, such as rugs and window treatments, and layered textures (textured wallpaper, chunkier weaves on furniture), she says. Rugs in particular add visual interest, dimensionality, warmth, and texture without cluttering a space or taking away from the bare beauty of minimalism, Magon says. Incorporating a few different textures can help keep a space varied and welcoming—especially if the colors are neutral and complementary, Rodriguez says. “This is where materials play a role. For kitchens and bathrooms, there’s interest now in stones that feature unique patterns and colors, such as blue and green tones, which bring a much warmer feel than a standard white marble,” Rodriguez says. Gallacher brings the color palette to life using a gradation of neutrals throughout a space by way of natural elements such as wood, marble, and concrete.
Lighting also comes into play. “Lighting that’s concealed or integrated into millwork, for instance, can be very minimalist, but it can also adjust over the course of the day to match circadian rhythms and have a positive influence on mood,” Rodriguez says. Rath recommends organics such as wood and leather. “Wood and other organics introduce subtle natural patterns that are interesting to behold. Sheen is relaxed, not shiny, and warmer in appearance. Simpler straight grain woods in cabinetry are the way to go,” he says. Artwork can also bring a sense of dimension, interest, and texture. “Featuring your favorite artwork, or a few curated accessories displayed in smaller moments, can go a long way toward adding style and warmth,” Rodriguez says. And when well-placed, art adds personality and makes a space feel like home, says Anne Carr of Anne Carr Design in Los Angeles. “While you don’t want to over-accessorize, make sure to incorporate personal touches such as vases, framed photos, and coffee table books,” she says. GO GREEN
“Plants bring life and energy, and their rich colors are wonderfully contrasted against a simple neutral palette,” Rath
The first principle of minimalism is a clutter-free space. For that, storage is essential. “It should be everywhere and yet not obvious,” Rath says. “I recommend incorporating flush-mounted surfaces that hide everything with an option to open and grab whenever you may need it.” “The beauty of minimalist design is the ‘less is more aesthetic,’ so the less clutter that is visible, the better,” Magon says. She suggests hidden storage elements such as benches, ottomans, furniture pieces with drawers, and flush push-to-open millwork. Getting creative with storage is key to successful minimalist design, Rodriguez says. “We like to find ways to conceal storage within our designs for a room by integrating closets into wall paneling, for instance.”

says. They also lend a sense of tranquility and a connection to nature that has proven health benefits like air purification, Rodriguez says. “If your home offers great views of a natural green landscape, you might not need much greenery within your interior spaces. Even so, it only takes a few strategically placed plantings to bring that feeling of nature into your home in a way that contributes to a warm minimalist mood,” she says. Rodriguez also prefers to incorporate greenery on balconies or other indoor/outdoor spaces. “Landscaping or adding plantings to these areas visually integrates nature into your living space without crowding and cluttering the home,” she says. Post-Marner loves to incorporate philodendrons, in particular, but with restraint. “When purchasing plants, a minimalist philosophy should be used as well. One five-foot-high philodendron in a living room as opposed to five smaller plants,” she says. If you don’t have a green thumb, Carr suggests using fresh, rotating arrangements. “They’re a great way to keep things interesting while bringing some life to the room.”

NEXT-LEVEL INTERACTIVE DINING 16
THESE EPICUREAN DESTINATIONS ALLOW YOU TO CATCH, GATHER, AND PREP YOUR OWN MEALS IN STYLE
lobe-trotting gourmands can take their culinary credentials to another level by seeking out unique, interactive experiences in which they truly work for their meal. These notable luxury resorts, clandestine restaurants, and innovative tour providers let amateurs try activities such as white-knuckle sport fishing, traditional truffle hunting, and digging for giant clams, with an added bonus of being able to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Whether you’re looking for an immersive foodie challenge, or a hands-on educational experience, you’ll want to add these travel-worthy experiences to your culinary bucket list.
Canada’s maritime provinces are the source of fresh, worldclass seafood year round. Gourmands exploring the heart of central Newfoundland are wise to visit Indian Falls Chalets, which offers salmon fly-fishing and smoking workshops. Guests spend a day on the Indian River mastering the art of fly-fishing for Atlantic salmon and brook trout, then take part in a smoking workshop in which they learn how to prepare and smoke local salmon from start to finish. In New Brunswick, Cielo Glamping Maritime invites guests to harvest their own oysters while on a stand-up paddleboard in the Bay of St. Simon. After harvesting and shucking, they get to taste the difference between those harvested at water temperature, served on ice, and charbroiled to perfection. Prince Edward Island’s Tranquility Cove Adventures delights with clam digging tours to the deserted island of Boughton. After enough clams are harvested by guests, the party moves to the beach, where clams are steamed in saltwater. The experience also includes the chance to haul a lobster trap, crab pot, and mussel sock, plus a lesson on each fishery.
the types of which vary due to tides and seasons. After taking a calming boat trip around the stunning island, during which guests can scour beaches for shellfish, their booty can then be taken back to the hotel for the culinary team to prepare a delicious meal. Set along Phang Nga Bay, one of the world’s most spectacular seascapes, travelers will find the serene Six Senses Koh Yao Noi, a luxury wellness retreat offering various gourmet experiences. Guests can take a classic long-tail boat to visit a local floating fish farm and select their own fresh catch for chefs to prepare back at the resort. Plus, Thai cooking classes feature an interactive tour through the resort’s organic Thai vegetable garden. CROATIA
Foodies have been flocking to Istria, the westernmost region of Croatia, to try their hand at truffle hunting. The specific scent that comes from truffles in damp soil is impossible for humans to discern, so trained dogs are used to assist the hunt. Karli Tartufi, Pietro & Pietro, and Prodan Tartufi, a trio of family-run businesses, share their traditions while letting guests enjoy both the challenge of finding truffles in the wild, preparing said truffles, and sampling a range of truffle products and delicacies.
Thailand delights visitors with a cornucopia of culinary activities, including many cooking classes and market tours. Halfway between Phuket and Krabi lies the less crowded island of Koh Yao Noi, home to the chic Cape Kudu Hotel. A must for any seafood lovers, the hotel supports its local community through joining local fishermen to forage for shellfish,

are all too happy to offload their fruits of the sea to the resort’s culinary team, which then transforms the fish into a delicious feast. There’s also a kayak fishing adventure in which participants drop a line into the water and bring the fresh catch back to be prepped at the resort. Guests can explore the 10-acre farm, picking their own fruit, vegetables, herbs, and eggs to enjoy later on. JAPAN
Located along the majestic Seto Inland Sea is Japan’s udon capital: Kagawa. The area has been perfecting the art of the sanuki udon noodle for centuries, and is home to more than 600 udon restaurants. In Mitoyo City, Udon House is an udon-themed hotel where guests learn the art of udon making from local specialists, visit a nearby farm to learn about the native agriculture and pick fresh udon toppings, and embark on udon-hopping journeys in which a guide directs them to the neighborhood’s best hole-in-the-wall udon restaurants. A few hours southwest of Tokyo lie the calm, brackish waters of Lake Hamana—the source of some of the most coveted seafood in Japan. In the coastal city of Hamamatsu, visitors can book a private evening fishing and dining experience on the lake with a local fisherman, learning the traditional
method for fishing with only a spear and a net, and catching your meal. When satisfied with the haul of crab, octopus, and fish, the fisherman pilots the boat to a floating restaurant on the lake, where the catch is cooked and served. Tea enthusiasts can learn the ancient art of tea making in the rural village of Hida-Kanayama, Gifu Prefecture. There, visitors pick the highly prized local green tea, Ikusato. After time spent harvesting the leaves in a bamboo basket, participants revel in the ancient ways of brewing tea using a large pot over firewood, with fresh water pumped directly from a well. MAINE
Lobster lovers come from across the globe to sample Maine’s most famous crustacean. At the legendary White Barn Inn, Auberge Resorts Collection, in the charming town of Kennebunk, guests learn about the lobster fishing industry and its sustainable future during a private tour along the coast. The main event comes when they try their hand at emptying lobster traps. Once back on dry land, guests meet with the resort’s chef and select the lobsters, then move on to a cooking class with the chef to earn their lunch. THE MALDIVES
Some of the Maldives’ most notable resorts tempt with fun, food-focused activities. In the South Malé atoll, COMO Cocoa Island lets guests try the local pastime in the form of reef bottom fishing for humpback snapper and grouper at sunset. Game fishing is also available, as guests can take the resort’s sports fishing boat to travel between reefs, with the guaranteed thrill of fighting bluefin trevally, snappers, and dogtooth tuna. After either activity, the fresh catch can be cooked by the resort’s chefs for lunch or dinner the next day. COMO Maalifushi, the only resort in the Thaa Atoll, also offers sunset reef bottom fishing to its guests, who can catch red snapper, grouper, and barracuda, then hand it over to the resort’s chefs. Soneva Fushi, a luxury resort in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, provides a unique dining experience at its Shades of Green, a 20-seat plantbased restaurant in the resort’s organic garden. To begin, guests are guided through the garden to examine, pick, and taste its herbs, vegetables, and fruits, ultimately choosing which ingredients should be used in their meal.

board the resort’s Ribcraft boat to view the open-ocean pens and a fish feeding session. On the way back to the resort, guests can work up an appetite by snorkeling with spinner dolphins, tropical fish, and Hawaiian sea turtles, then finally settle in for a customized, five-course wine dinner in which the Kanpachi is prepared in various ways. Over on Kauai, The Lodge at Kukui’ula, a Destination by Hyatt hotel, lets guests embark on the Mahealani, a 35-foot fishing boat used for expeditions in fish-filled waters. Ahi, mahi, and marlin are the typical catches of the day for guests, many of whom
Nestled in the Alpine region of Arosa is the Tschuggen Grand Hotel, which each summer hosts a variety of outdoor experiences, including a mushroom picking and cooking class. After mushroom hunting in the forests, guests make a secret mushroom risotto recipe. For travelers to Zurich who want to explore the city’s iconic lake, the tony Park Hyatt Zurich offers a Lake Zurich leisure cruise experience where guests have the chance to fish in the crystal clear waters and even take a dip. Afterward, the fresh catch can be prepped alongside a gourmet menu at the hotel’s signature restaurant, parkhuus. NEW ZEALAND
Minaret Station Alpine Lodge’s heli-fishing and seafood adventure is a must for any thrill-seeking fish lover visiting New Zealand’s rugged West Coast. After a scenic helicopter ride, the crew collects crayfish pots from the frigid waters using the helicopter while guests wait on the beach; the bounty
is then prepared into a gourmet picnic lunch with a mountain backdrop. One of the country’s most lauded luxury resorts, Kauri Cliffs, might be best known for its stunning ocean views and championship golf course, but it also impresses with foodie activities such as land-based fishing. Guests join a local guide at one of the property’s private beaches to test their skill at hooking snapper or kahawai; the fresh catch can be brought back to the lodge, where the chef will prepare it for dinner. Hidden among 2,500 acres of native forest in Rotorua, Treetops Lodge & Estate offers a Maori food trail in which guests slip into the wilderness in search of native plants and herbs, while learning about the nutritional and medicinal properties, as well as ties with Maori cultural traditions. Participants sample what they find and harvest it for chefs to use at the resort. There’s also a “wild food” cooking school, where guests forage for native ingredients, then gather at the kitchen table to share a unique cooking and dining experience.

PLAYING THROUGH IN STYLE BE AMONG THE FIRST TO PLAY THESE NEW, UPSCALE GOLF COURSES
s a solitary pursuit requiring ample time outdoors—alone or in pods A and well-distanced from others—the
sport of golf has seen a spike in popularity as of late. Here’s a look at the newest golf courses that have serious duffers pining to make travel plans for 2021 and beyond. Come for the serious sporting challenge, and stay for the jaw-dropping scenery and luxe amenities. Since its debut in early 2020, the Greg Norman Signature course at Rancho San Lucas has lured serious golfers to its oceanfront locale, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas. For his first 18-hole design in Baja California, the legendary golfer and his team created a multithemed layout with sweeping ocean views from every hole. Spanning three different ecosystems, the course starts through windswept dunes, progresses through a thick cactus forest creased by meandering arroyos, and returns players to the beach on the back nine. Highlights of the 7,210-yard layout include the par-3 third, which parallels the sea and gives players fine views of breaching whales during winter months. Two comfort stations are spaced around the course, serving smooth margaritas to numb the pain of missed putts. Norman Signature is part of the new Rancho San Lucas development, which is home to resort accommodations and residences including the Norman Estates, designed by the golfer’s Norman Design Group. One of the golf world’s contemporary holy grails can be found at the opposite corner of the continent at a luxury resort on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Located on more than a 20
mile of sandy beach, Cabot Links Golf Resort is already home to two world-renowned 18-hole courses— Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs—and the resort’s new The Nest at Cabot Cape Breton is a 10-hole short course built by the revered golf architects Rod Whitman and Dave Axland. The inland layout features all of the hallmarks of links golf found at Cabot’s full-length courses, with firm, fast conditions that invite creativity, accompanied by extraordinary ocean views. The swifter pace of play is meant to be more inclusive and appealing to a variety of players, including families and beginners. Mickelson National, one of Canada’s biggest golf openings in recent years, has attracted enthusiasts to its rugged home in rolling foothills just west of Calgary. The golfing great Phil Mickelson spent more than four years working on the layout with design partner Rick Smith, and the end result, which opened last summer, features a raw natural aesthetic. Creative use of routing, water features, and elevation provides both challenge and amusement; this is a course made for thrill seekers. One of the U.K.’s most anticipated openings, Dumbarnie Links recently debuted along the north shore of Scotland’s Firth of Forth, 20 minutes from the sport’s spiritual home of St. Andrews. A true links course, Dumbarnie was designed by Ryder Cup veteran Clive Clark. The new-build course was constructed on former farmland; around 500,000 cubic yards of earth were moved to create a striking dunescape that moves golfers up and down 80 feet between the clubhouse and the course’s lower holes, which sit among natural, protected dunes.
As the largest and oldest golf complex in Ireland, Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort sprawls across 1,100 acres in the sleepy fishing village of Downings, County Donegal. In addition to the lauded existing courses of Old Tom Morris (opened in 1893) and Sandy Hills (2003), the family owned and operated resort has opened a third 18-hole championship links course, the St. Patrick’s Links. The course was designed by the famed American architect Tom Doak. The rugged Irish dunescape would normally be off-limits to new development, but because a golf course existed before the European Union was established, the site is fair game. Wisconsin’s Destination Kohler, a leading golf destination that’s home to four Pete Dye courses, also introduced its newest course, The Baths of Blackwolf Run, this spring. The 10-hole

par-3 course, designed by longtime Dye collaborator Chris Lutzke, features distances ranging from 60 to 160 yards. A two-acre putting course offers 18- or 27-hole configurations, as well. The glacier-carved terrain of Blackwolf Run provides a stunning backdrop, with four strategic water features, or “baths,” on the course, the name of which pays homage to the Kohler Co.’s 128-year history of bathing design excellence. The Pacific Northwest’s ultimate golfing experience can be found on a remote stretch of the Oregon coast, at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. In June 2020, the resort introduced its newest course, the Sheep Ranch, an oceanfront marvel that for years was only experienced by a select few. Now, the team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw have rebuilt the course, which is available for full public use. Sheep Ranch
occupies the smallest plot of the property’s five 18-hole courses but boasts the longest stretch of coastline; every hole features Pacific Ocean views, and nine greens sit right along the water. Payne’s Valley—named in honor of Missouri’s own Payne Stewart, the champion golfer who perished in a 1999 plane accident—has opened as the third 18-hole course at Big Cedar Lodge, an upscale, 4,600-acre wilderness-themed resort in the Ozarks. Big Cedar enlisted Tiger Woods, who designed Payne’s Valley—his first public-access golf course—along with his firm, TGR Design. Golfers take great delight in finishing off at the “Big Rock,” the par-3 19th hole (known as a bonus or “bye” hole) that features a massive rock face and waterfall behind the green. Once golfers complete the hole, they can tackle the Cliffhanger Trail, a
nearly one-mile nature trail that travels through a natural spring-fed cavern system, alongside 250-foot cliffs, across a handcrafted metal bridge that spans a 100-foot-deep gorge, and through ancient waterfalls. In addition to its work in Missouri, Woods’ TGR Design firm has partnered with Pebble Beach Co. to create The Hay, a new short course on the former site of Peter Hay Golf Course. The new facility includes a short course of nine par-3 holes ranging in length from 47 to 106 yards, a 20,000-square-foot putting course, a full kitchen and bar, and the resort’s largest outdoor patio featuring expansive views. With the short course, Woods and his team are angling to draw new players to the game with a fun golf experience for all ages and abilities, while still offering a challenge for skilled players. 21

TERRY CREWS’ FAVORITE THINGS BETWEEN HIS STUDIO AND HIS HOUSE, THE SIX ITEMS THE AMERICA’S GOT TALENT HOST LOVES MOST
pound”—a combination of his home and studio, the latter of which he recently designed from a former stable in Pasadena. Crews, who hosts America’s Got Talent on NBC and will return in his role as Lieutenant Terry Jeffords on the next season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine this fall, recently put out an audio memoir with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, called Stronger Together, discussing their 32-year marriage. The famously fit star, 52, began his career as a defensive end and linebacker in the National Football League, before turning to show business, where he’s also starred in Everybody Hates Chris and hosted Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Crews has appreciated spending more time close to home since the quarantine began. “Thank God for these Zooms. I’m never driving to Santa Monica again,” he says with a laugh. His new studio, located about 10 minutes from his house, is about 3,000 square feet and has rapid scanning, UV lighting, and high-pressure steamers to make sure everything is Covid-safe. It’s done so well, he says, that “it’s hard to leave.” His new production studio offers him a one-stop shop for working on his projects, and his wife uses it for her home office, as well (she’s an actress, producer, singer, and designer). “It’s an extension of our home,” he says. While the family currently lives in a “classic Spanish-style home,” they’ve had plans drawn up to create a more modern house. For now, they’re in the market for the land. We caught up with Crews to discuss his six favorite things in the family’s two-structure compound. BACKYARD THEATER AND LIVING ROOM
“We have a giant table that seats about 15 people. Then there’s this big couch area with a fire pit, and the movie screen comes down from the pergola and the background is the mountains, the Eaton Canyon foothills. I love to spend time there. During the whole pandemic, I’ve used it like my living room. It’s a showstopper...I spend as much time outside as I can.” 15 - FOOT-TALL BOOKCASE
“This is kind of the statement piece. It even has a rolling ladder. The most valuable thing I own is my book collection. We probably have eight to nine bookcases and they’re filled with books on design, art, fashion, and cooking. My books are in all my Zooms... you can always see bookshelves in the background.”
GREEN SCREEN WALL
“At the studio, we created a 20-foot-by15-foot wall where you can create any environment. We teamed up with Logitech and I can even have live events streamed here.”
PROFESSIONAL- LEVEL HOME GYM CHEF’S KITCHEN
“This is the most modern part of the house, with all the Viking stuff you could imagine. It’s our favorite place to hang out—by the large island.”
CREWS - DESIGNED FURNITURE
“All the furniture that’s in my studio, I designed with Bernhardt Design. We’ve got couches and benches and settees. Before the pandemic we were headed to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair with my new armchair and credenza, and we’re building out my collection.”
“Another thing that I’m super proud of is that I essentially built an Equinox on my tennis court. My wife was telling me for years to build a gym, but I always liked hanging out with people at the gym and didn’t want to do it at home. With the quarantine, we put a professional tent up, we have professional lighting, we redid the floor. It feels like a real, giant gym...my mobile Equinox. When the pandemic hit, we had to create a compound. We had to create these areas where we create a semblance of normalcy.” 23
homas Meyer—genial, yet reserved and reclusive—is not the kind of figT ure you’d picture leading Desigual, the
IN A RARE INTERVIEW, DESIGUAL’S FOUNDER, THOMAS MEYER, GETS CANDID — AND OPTIMISTIC —ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY
How did you feel about that backward logo when it was first presented?
My first reaction was surprise. That’s not something [most brand consultants] would dare. But when I thought a bit more, I understood it represents the essence of the brand. It explains why
Barcelona-based apparel brand known for its undie parties (more below), picante pattern-mixing, and youthful vibe. Then again, this is a brand with a logo that spells its name backward, and in reverse. At Desigual, which means “unequal” or “different” in Spanish, the unexpected is part of the DNA. Meyer, 63, of Swiss ethnicity but raised in Barcelona, founded the brand in 1984. Stuck with excess denim, Meyer dreamed up what would become the brand’s “iconic” jacket, one of the earliest examples of upcycled fashion, made from scraps of patchworked jeans. The brand grew into a global powerhouse, with 500-plus stores in more than 90 countries. Bold marketing, like their “half naked” sales, offering free merch to underwear-clad shoppers, drew scads of young people in skivvies lined up outside shops from New York to Rome to Prague. But soon after the investment firm Eurazeo purchased a stake in the company in 2014, revenue faltered. Meyer reportedly paid $160 million to buy back the firm’s shares in 2018, retaking full control. A year later, he set a new course, unveiling that cheeky logo—like a mirror image, designed to be read in selfie mode on cellphones—and a “Forwards Is Boring” ad campaign. True to his logo, he’s moved forward by looking back. This year, he launched a new capsule collection from acclaimed designer Christian Lacroix, who has collaborated with Desigual since 2011. And he’s doubling down on sustainability goals; this season’s “Love the World” line features upcycled pieces in Desigual’s signature patchwork, made from secondhand denim and other organic, recycled fibers. In a rare moment with the press, Meyer sat down with RESIDE®, via Zoom, from his sunny offices overlooking the Mediterranean.

we exist, no? Doing things in a different way. That’s the whole idea of “going forwards is boring.”
How’s that going?
For 2020, around 25% of our products were sustainable. We think we’ll achieve 50% by 2023.
Was the new manifesto helpful in 2020?
I cannot say it made things easier, but it gave us a sense of what we are doing. We want to bring joyfulness, to make people feel happy...on a deeper level. Obviously, we are only an apparel brand, but that feeling in our campaigns, our products, makes a difference. You purchase energy from renewable sources in Europe. Your stores and offices have won green architecture awards. You’ve prioritized sustainability. How have the pandemic’s economic setbacks affected that? Will you push back your goals?
No, absolutely not. Sustainability is in our roots. One company can’t do it alone, but you can inspire suppliers, customers, and others in the market. Customers don’t want to pay more, so you need suppliers to produce in a sustainable way under the right costs.
Hasn’t Covid-19 slowed that process?
I think it has accelerated the process. The consciousness of consumers is much higher. It’s clear we all must consume in a more conscious way. There are a lot of people suffering now, and we are suffering as a company, too. But all the challenges, they bring opportunities. That sounds pretty optimistic.
I’m basically an optimistic person. [He chuckles.] You’re also Swiss, leading a brand associated with Spain—and Barcelona’s vibrancy, in particular. Is there something Swiss you bring to Desigual?
For sure, being Swiss and living in Spain has built me. If I started Desigual in Gstaad, it probably wouldn’t be the same. My parents are Swiss. But we moved here 58 years ago, so that’s a
long time. One of Desigual’s strongest assets is the idea of mixing fabrics, the patchwork, no? That probably comes from having different cultures at my house. We were speaking in Swiss German; in school I learned Spanish, Catalan, and French. Maybe I bring some order, doing things in a more Cartesian way, I don’t know. I feel my Swiss roots, yes, but I very much like living in Barcelona. I feel it’s my journey, my culture. And you raised a family there. Are any of your children interested in fashion?
I have three daughters, ages 23, 21, and 10. My second daughter took this last year off from school and is working on an internship here at Desigual, every month in a different department.

That’s true. We’ll see what happens. There’s still a long way in front of her. [He flashes a wide smile.] And a long way in front of me, too.

LIVING AMONG ART
ZAHA HADID DESIGN HONORS THE ARCHITECT THROUGH OBJECTS WITH AMORPHOUS SHAPES, CURVED LINES, AND MONOCHROME COLORS
Architect Zaha Hadid began designing objects as a way to experiment and develop ideas on a small scale. The company continues her legacy.
aha Hadid’s gravity-defying buildings, simply put, are art. The late Z British-Iraqi architect transformed cit-
ies and communities through her evocative amorphous shapes, fluid lines, and the use of monochromatic, industrial materials like concrete and steel. Her beautiful structures allow people to live, work, and intimately experience her artful design. A powerful female architect in a male-dominated industry, Hadid said she always designed for modern life. Her legacy lives on through her eponymous architecture firm, but also through her product collection, Zaha Hadid Design (ZHD). Hadid began designing products when she founded her architecture firm in the 1980s as a way to experiment and develop ideas on a different scale. The first commercial ZHD Collection was
launched in 2014 at Harrods department store in London. Today, the collection features a series of objects, sculpture, and tableware, including candelabras, furniture, game sets, vases, and trays, all of which double as art pieces. ZHD is led by co-directors Maha Kutay and Woody Yao, who both trained as architects and had been working with Zaha Hadid Architects since 1995 and 1993, respectively. Both have a longstanding connection to the office and worked closely with Hadid to bring her vision to life, which was always to interpret the ordinary into something unexpected. “Our inspiration and our background is architecture, so the work itself is very much related to that,” Kutay says. “For [Hadid], it was a good
that come out are the true color of the metal, which is black, gray, or white. We’re always very monochromatic with our choices, but felt with time that we needed to inject a little bit more into the collection than just the black and white that we started with. Color is important for us because it sets the mood of a space.” Many of the pieces are inspired by an architectural approach; for example, how light moves within buildings and which materials are used. “Architecture influences the product design, but we also look at how the product design influences the architecture,” Yao says. “It’s a cycle. For example, Zaha always looked at movement through light and how light travels in a building. We look at how color and light travel from one object to another.” “With spaces, it’s all about the experience,” Kutay says. “With the object, it’s the relationship between the body and the item. It’s how you interact with it and how it relates to you.” Kutay and Yao create work that is timeless and forgo seasonal launches in favor of building upon the existing collection. The duo gets inspiration from production and fabrication of each product and pushing boundaries of what is possible. “Zaha was never a person who looked out for creativity, but actually looked in for creativity,” Kutay says. “She came in with her ideas rather than seeing what other people are doing and then getting inspiration to do something. She was a trendsetter in that way.”
Cell candleholders, node vessels, serenity centerpieces, and cell centerpieces are among the most popular Zaha Hadid Design pieces.

way of experimenting and seeing her ideas transform into shapes and into physical elements.” The ZHD portfolio encompasses 40 years of research and has pioneered innovation in lighting, furniture, décor, and finishes. Some of the most popular pieces include the Plex Vessels, Node Vessel, the Swirl Bowl, and the Cell Candleholders and Centerpiece, as well as the Field of Towers Chess Set. The collections often feature monochrome colors, which reflect the true colors of the materials used. “It’s about the simplicity of using one material per product, yet having complexity in form,” Kutay says. “The idea is about not repeating or re-engineering something, but actually questioning what the item is, what purpose it serves and the materiality.” Hadid also used painting as a medium to visually express her creative concepts and would create her own custom color palette. Many of the colorful pieces seen within the ZHD Collection are inspired by Hadid’s custom colors she’d use in her paintings. Kutay says they try to make the connection between the tones she’d use in the paintings and the new work in the collection. The collection’s materials include metal, crystal, and ceramics and the designers tend to stick to one material per product. “At the beginning of the collection, we always laugh about the use of color because we sit in a room and we ask, ‘What color are we going to go with?’” Kutay says. “Then, of course, the colors

THE LURE OF LINEN AT HOME ANYWHERE, THE MATERIAL IS MEANT TO BE ENJOYED AT ALL TIMES OF THE YEAR
s relaxed as it is regal and as approachable as it is precious, A there’s a duality about linen fabric that
makes it work for both a casual space by the sea or a chic loft in the city. “Linen is at once both elegant and organic. It truly lends itself to any style of space from the most minimal to truly traditional,” says Grant Trick, of Grant Trick Furnishings in Irondale, Ala. Made from the fibers of the flax plant, linen has an earthy touch that renders it versatile for drapery, upholstery, bedding, and wallpaper. “It feels simultaneously modern and earthy,” says Marea Clark of Marea Clark Interiors in San Francisco. “Inherent textural qualities make it interesting.” It’s that same versatility that enables it to be iterated in many different weaves and finishes, from the lightest translucent to the heaviest weave, says Susie McLaren, creative head of residential interiors at SHH, an architecture and interior design practice in London. It

can be woven into jacquard patterns and multicolored herringbones, and can be hand, screen, or digitally printed. “Either natural, bleached, or dyed, its character always comes through,” McLaren says. Linen is generally strong and hardwearing, and its character improves with washing and age. Light and midweights are perfect for formal pleating and embroidery, while washed and stonewashed varieties are ideal for a more relaxed look, McLaren says. The material is also naturally antimicrobial and resistant to mildew, “which is especially good for humid climates,” says Kristin Hildebrand, lead designer and CEO of KH Interiors based in Southern California. “Its fibers are so tightly woven, they won’t loosen over time, making whatever linen you have in your home last longer,” she says. How and where to render this fabric within your walls is only a matter of the style you seek for your home.
LET IT COME TO LIFE
Linen can be used in just about every room in your home—as furniture fabric, upholstery, or as “linens” for the bedroom or dining room. For a beach bungalow, lightweight linen curtains look breezier when unlined. Heavier weight-lined and underlined linen drapery befit a more formal living space. Phillip Thomas, founder and principal of Phillip Thomas Inc. in New York City, often uses a heavy flannel as lining when he wants to give panels more structure. Hildebrand loves to use linen for roman shades in window treatments. “Sometimes we select solid neutrals for a shade, and other times we mix it up with a patterned linen. In both scenarios, the soft organic feel of the fabric has a beautiful effect,” she says. As upholstery for furniture, linen can be rendered in myriad ways. Sofas can be tightly upholstered or swathed in loose covers for a more casual and versatile look, McLaren says. Slipcovers are a smart choice for high traffic seating because they can be easily switched out and laundered. Linen also partners well with other fabrics. “Linen upholstery with leather piping is always a smart combination,” McLaren says. In the bedroom, linen is perfect for headboards and bed bases. “It’s absorbent and breathable, which makes it naturally hypoallergenic, so it’s ideal to use in bedrooms and particularly for bedding,” McLaren says. She also uses embroidered antique linen sheets as throws for sofas and embroidered linen for window blinds. “Vintage linen sacks can be reused for upholstery and cushions and mixed with other fabrics for a totally unique look,” McLaren adds. And instead of the often-used grasscloth wallpaper, try a linen option. “It really warms up spaces by softening walls that might otherwise feel stark with paint,” Clark says.

CONSIDER THE FABRICATION
“Linen is available in a wide variety of textures and patterns that open up the opportunity for dynamic and creative interiors,” Thomas says. The beauty of it is it can be integrated into both formal structured furnishings as well as more relaxed, informal furnishings, he says. Trick suggests using washed linens for slipcovered pieces wanting soft and imperfect textures. “Expect cushion covers to grow a bit over time; flip often and fluff feather inserts,” he says. He also loves linen velvets for upholstery, which he says can be formal or relaxed. “I love that they come from the mill already having a gorgeous patina that just gets better with age. Linen velvet ‘wears in’ and doesn’t wear out like cottons and synthetics. The more you live on it, the signs of use just add a layer of authenticity that you don’t get with some other velvets,” Trick says. As a breathable fiber, it’s cool in the summer and warm in winter, McLaren says. For cooler months she suggests layering it with other materials such as wools, cashmeres, and faux fur for a cozier vibe. “In summer, floaty unlined white linen at open windows and loose linen couch covers in paler, more summery colors” are ideal, she says.
Miami-based designer Constanza Collarte of Collarte Interiors considers linen a go-to fabric because she’s able to use it year-round. “I tend to favor laundered or washed versions—in fact, the more wrinkled and casual looking, the better for that lived-in look,” she says. “It’s organic and adds a ton of texture to any room and it takes on color beautifully in more muted tones.” HANDLE WITH CARE
It is important to understand (and embrace) the potential for wrinkling with linen, Thomas says. “If that’s not something you can stomach, then I recommend staying away from the fabric or using a blend, such as linen cotton, which is called union cloth.” Although linen is strong, the lighter weights can eventually deteriorate in time with excessive washing, McLaren says. “Open weaves on upholstered furniture can be vulnerable to catching and tearing, but this would be similar to any open weave fabric.” And, like every upholstery fabric, linen benefits from regular maintenance. “Vacuuming at least once a month to remove surface dirt will extend your linen life a lot. And if you have an accident, probably best to call
a professional upholstery cleaner,” Hildebrand says. EMBRACE ITS IMPERFECTIONS
Because linen is hydrophilic, meaning it absorbs moisture from its environment, don’t expect perfection, Trick says. “Drapery, in particular, will almost always stretch and shrink. When it’s installed and steamed, it will grow; when heat is running in cold months, it loses moisture and shrinks,” he says. “This is what makes it special and what makes it more fabulous than synthetics—like a living, breathing thing.” For upholstery, Trick recommends having the fabric knit-backed to improve the tailoring and help prevent some of the natural stretching that occurs on cushions, pillows, and bedding. Just ensure you use the correct weight and finish for its function, McLaren says. She suggests using a robust heavyweight linen for fixed upholstery and a soft fluid finish for drapery. “Embrace its character and tendency to crease; it’s all part of its relaxed charm. Washing it will soften the structure and may lighten the color, but that’s part of its appeal and character to be celebrated.”

INTRODUCING THE MUSEUM OF THE HOME THE LONDON - BASED GEFFRYE MUSEUM IS BEING REBRANDED, AT A TIME WHEN THE IDEA OF HOME IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER
After a nearly three-year renovation, the Geffrye Museum in the Hoxton neighborhood of London is being rebranded as the Museum of the Home.
he concept of home—and what we use it for—has undergone a treT mendous transformation recently,
so it seems only fitting that one of the leading museums on the subject of the home front has reinvented itself. When it opened earlier this month after an £18.1 million renovation that lasted nearly three years, London’s Geffrye Museum—which was established more than a century ago and is renowned for its historically accurate galleries of period rooms—was rechristened as the Museum of the Home. The changes, according to the museum’s director, Sonia Solicari, “better reflect our renewed focus on the theme
of home and make the museum more relatable to a wider audience.” “The new campus, which doubles the public space, will be a place to discover, reveal, and rethink home together,” Solicari says, “and our public programs will explore universal themes, social issues, and diverse, thoughtprovoking and personal stories related to the theme of home.” The renovation, designed by London-based Wright & Wright Architects, whose clients have included the British Museum, the British Academy, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, is the museum’s first in nearly a quarter century.

The 300-year-old almshouses in the city’s Hoxton neighborhood that house the museum now include space for new home galleries, a collections library, and spaces for film screenings and performances, plus two additions—a learning pavilion and a green-roofed studio. “Homes can mean so many different things—from the physical spaces we live in to a feeling of safety or comfort that goes beyond a specific time or place,” Solicari says. “Real homes are often messy and complex spaces. We want our visitors to see their own experiences and feelings of home life reflected in the displays and stories we share.” To that end, in April 2020, when much of the world was under lockdown, the Museum of the Home, which typically gets 125,000 visitors per year, started “Stay Home,” a rapid-response digital collecting project that documents how the pandemic changed the way we live. People from all over England filled
out questionnaires and sent photographs, oral recordings, and diaries that document how they adapted to what has come to be called the “new normal.” “They have shared how they have learned new skills, made new connections but also struggled with the isolation and economic hardships caused by the pandemic,” she says, adding that the home became a “sanctuary for some and a prison for others.” She adds that the museum’s exhibitions, artist commissions, performances, discussions, festivals, and events are designed to open up a dialogue about issues around the home, such as homelessness, migration, mental health, and the environment. The Museum of the Home, which provides a deep exploration of people’s everyday lives and a dossier of domesticity over the past 400 years, has always spotlighted change. Its own history acts as an apt reflection of its mission. The 14 almshouses, built in 1714 for impoverished people, originally housed 50 pensioners associated with the Ironmongers’ Co. The buildings, which each had four rooms, were financed by the estate of Sir Robert Geffrye, an English merchant who died in 1704 and who had served as the Lord Mayor of London. In 1911, when the area became overcrowded, the Ironmongers’ Co. sold the buildings to the London County Council and moved the residents to cleaner, safer suburban areas. The original museum, which opened to the public in 1914, featured furniture and woodwork and was a resource for workers in those industries. The chronological period rooms were added in the 1930s to cater to an audience of schoolchildren, and over the years they were embellished with paintings, furniture, and decorative arts. In the 1998 renovation, a wing for 20th-century period rooms and spaces for learning and exhibitions were added; the herb garden and period gardens opened around the same time. In 2011, the word “home” was added to the museum’s name. One of the museum’s new features is the “Room of Now,” which, by design, will keep evolving. “It will be curated by a range of thought leaders, creatives, and commu-
nity groups and will invite visitors to have their own say on what stories they would like to see in the museum,” Solicari says. “This will be a space for visitors and partners to consider the role of a ‘room for the 21st century’ and what a room of the future could represent.” As we adapt to spending more time at home and using the space differently, the Museum of the Home will continue to delve into our relationship with what is the most relevant space in our lives. “The pandemic has highlighted how our feelings about home shift all the time,” Solicari says. “Home is everchanging—and so is the museum.”
The museum provides a deep exploration into how people have lived over the past hundreds of years and how they live now.

REINTERPRETING TRADITIONAL LUXURY
DELFINA DELETTREZ FENDI EXPRESSES CREATIVITY THROUGH HER HANDCRAFTED ITALIAN JEWELRY LINE 32
Delfina Delettrez (4)
Delettrez Fendi knows the power of an object. DAselfina the great-granddaughter of Adele
and Edoardo Fendi, the founders of the iconic Italian fashion house, Delettrez Fendi grew up with a certain appreciation for material things as she observed her family running its luxury business. Delettrez Fendi, who founded her own jewelry line, Delfina Delettrez, in 2007, learned early in her life that even the smallest accessory could represent more than just style. “I was taught that objects are emotional tools,” Delettrez Fendi says. “A bag isn’t just a bag. Instead, they have the power to open up the imagination and tell stories, taking on a new meaning far beyond their material existence.” Fendi family reunions were like a master class in fashion and creativity— discussing the industry was as common as small talk about the weather, and Delettrez Fendi says she was always encouraged to partake in these discussions, which typically took place during her family’s Sunday lunches. “I remember animated conversations since I was a child,” she says. “Children were always invited to listen and participate. It didn’t matter how old you were as long as you were opinionated and had a personal point of view or an idea.” This attitude, she says, “pushed the accelerator on the creative and critical side” of the younger Fendi generation. Though her family’s business was an influence in her life, Delettrez Fendi, 34, says her family never pressured her to be a part of it or to even like fashion. Delettrez Fendi has two siblings, and she’s the only one who has pursued a creative career. “Our family simply left the door open for us to experiment and learn by watching them in action,” she says. Delettrez Fendi found role models in the women in her family. Her mother, Silvia Venturini Fendi, serves as Fendi’s creative director of accessories, menswear, and children. Her grandmother, Anna, and her four great aunts transformed Fendi into the distinguished brand it is today. “I come from a family of working women who worked passionately day and night to create their success and redeem themselves in a world that was still all male at the time,” Delettrez Fendi says. In this environment, Delettrez Fendi
developed a passion for creativity, which she says is imperative for such a career, along with having “something new to say.” Before starting Delfina Delettrez, she’d struggled to find jewelry that fit her style and would appeal to other women like her. “Nothing seemed oriented toward my energy or my generation,” she says. “It became clear that if I wanted to start wearing jewelry, it would have to be my own creation.” Her upbringing in the fashion world led her to approach designing her own jewelry with “as much creativity as possible.” She aims to differentiate her pieces from others by reimagining conventional styles and telling stories through her jewelry. And the challenges inspire her. “It’s a constant dialogue between the goldsmith and me, since it’s a constant compromise between the idea and the wearability,” she says. “What inspires me most is to patiently wait and observe the piece coming to life—a sort of alchemical miracle each time.” Delfina Delettrez jewelry is handcrafted in Delettrez Fendi’s atelier in Rome. She feels she owes it to her customers that her jewelry is made by hand to produce the highest quality possible. “Today, as never before, the word ‘luxury’ is connected to craft, something that has been made by someone, with time, especially for you,” she says. The Delfina Delettrez collections offer a variety of distinct pieces, from contemporary takes on diamond and pearl earrings to unconventional wedding bands. Prices range from about €300 for a single earring to just under €17,000 for a diamond bracelet from the “Marry Me” collection. Her best piece, she says, is always the next one she’ll create. And in addition to her own line, Delettrez Fendi contributes to the family business. Currently, she’s working on Fendi’s next couture jewelry collection. The next collection for Delfina Delettrez will be pieces made with “night gold,” which Delettrez Fendi says is her take on black gold. “I want to keep creating beautiful and new objects made with the best quality ever, using crafts and traditions infused with my own vision and personal codes,” she says.
Delfina Delettrez Fendi, shown above, has named her latest collection of jewels, shown here, “Unchain My Art.” A ring from the collection is seen on the opposite page.

CHOICE CONVERTIBLES A GUIDE TO HIGH - PERFORMANCE CARS THAT LET YOU ENJOY FUN IN THE SUN
he demise of the convertible has been predicted many times—drafty even with the tops up, they said, and T unsafe. On April 22, 1976, a white Cadillac Eldorado rolled
down the assembly line in Detroit wearing an “End of an Era” sign. “Like the running board and rumble seat, the convertible is an item which history has passed by,” said Edward Kennard, then Cadillac’s general manager. But it wasn’t true—within a few years, Chrysler was making drop-top K-cars, and Buick had a convertible option on the Riviera. European car makers—Triumph, MG, Fiat, Volkswagen— never stopped making convertibles. Today they’re a small part of the overall auto marketplace, but with good representation among performance brands. Here are a few of the highend choices available for fun in the sun in 2021 and beyond.
2021 FERRARI PORTOFINO M, $229,950
Talk about wind in your hair. The front-engine Portofino M is powered by a 3.9-liter, 612-horsepower twin-turbo V-8 engine and eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that can get the car to 62 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds. There’s even a “race” setting for track encounters. The Portofino M’s top goes down in 14 seconds, even with the car moving at low speeds. The interior is swathed in Italian leather, and to keep passengers comfortable with an open top, there’s a wind deflector and neck-warmers with three heat levels. The Ferrari has a back seat, but it’s tiny and best used to store luggage for weekend getaways. Actually, Portofino—a little jewel of a port city on the Italian Riviera— is a pretty good summer destination for one of these.
2021 BMW Z4 M40I, $64,695
It’s possible to upgrade the base 30i with performance enhancements, but why not pivot right to this M version, introduced in 2020, which offers a 382-horsepower turbo inline six to replace the 254-horsepower four? In either version, the Z4 is a fun, great-handling car, shifted via an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The M40i reaches 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds, with a bonus of 31 miles per gallon on the highway. The BMW’s one-touch convertible top goes down in just 11 seconds. The M car comes with standard sport seats that will hold you in on the sharpest curves—smoothed out via the car’s adaptive suspension. It’s a nice car for long drives, but you’ll have to travel light—there’s not much luggage space, either in the cabin or the small trunk. 2021 LEXUS LC 500, $102,025
Not many of today’s convertibles offer accommodations for four passengers, though the rear seat is a little tight in this car. The LC 500 with folding top is new for 2021. Power comes from a five-liter V-8 with 471 horsepower on tap, connected to a 10-speed automatic. The LC 500’s four-layer soft top is hydraulically operated and goes down in 15 seconds. The car is silky quiet and wonderfully luxurious—for the lucky passengers up front. A 10.3-inch touchscreen is standard, and a touchpad controls functions for navigation, phone, and audio—an arrangement some will find annoying. Alas, Lexus offers a hybrid option in the LC 500 coupe but not the convertible. 2022 MERCEDES - BENZ SL63, $115,000 (ESTIMATED)
The SL, with a history that stretches back to the 1950s, is all-new for 2022. The company has been so preoccupied with getting it ready that there was no 2021 SL. The new car is less of a luxurious cruiser and more of a driver’s car. The SL is now under the wing of the AMG performance division, and will sit on the same platform as the AMG GT. The SL63 will use a version of the GT 63’s 577-horsepower four-liter, twin-turbo V-8, with a mild hybrid system and more than 600 horsepower. The GT 63 reaches 60 miles per hour in 3.1 seconds, and the SL should be comparable.

2021 ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE ROADSTER, $150,086
This gorgeous Roadster was $164,086 in 2020, so that’s a $14,000 price drop for 2021. And what do you get for your money? The car is powered by a four-liter, 503-horsepower turbocharged V-8 engine, with an eight-speed automatic from ZF. A seven-speed manual is reserved for the coupes. The zero to 60 time is 3.7 seconds, and the car can reach 198 miles per hour. That gem of a V-8 snarls and pops, and with the top down the sounds mix with road noise for an aural symphony—who needs infotainment! Standard on the Aston are 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension, dynamic stability control, dynamic torque vectoring, and an electronic rear differential. The Vantage Roadster also has the fastest convertible top in the business, using a lightweight Z-fold design and able to go down in just seven seconds. LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN EVO SPYDER RWD, $233,123
All-wheel drive helps keep this wild beast of a supercar firmly
planted, but the thrifty Lamborghini buyer (if there is such a thing) can save $57,972 by choosing the new version with just the rear wheels driven. In either version, the 5.2-liter, V-10 power plant is mounted amidships right behind the driver, producing 631 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The RWD version takes 3.5 seconds to 62 miles per hour. Drivers who for some reason keep the top up will find headroom difficult for tall people and compromised rear vision. Better to leave it off. Extremely quick throttle response, near-violent acceleration, and pin-sharp steering are on the very plus side, plus aggressive good looks. 2021 PORSCHE 911 TARGA 4S, $136,550
The Targa version of the latest 911 was introduced in 2020, and features a retractable roof over the passenger compartment and a fixed glass rear window. There are strong visual cues linking the car to the original 911 Targas introduced in the 1960s, though those had a removable roof panel. The fabric roof rolls back into its storage in a leisurely 19 seconds. The 4S is the performance variant. Its three-liter, twin-turbo six produces 443 horsepower (up from 379 in the 4) and can attain 60 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds, and reach 188. A seven-speed manual is available as an even trade, in this case for an eight-speed double-clutch automatic. Every rear-engine Porsche 911 made (since 1964!) is fun to drive, and having the Targa roof ups the ante.
The 2021 Lexus LC 500, shown on opposite page, has room for passengers. This page: The Ferrari Portofino M, shown at top, comes with a race setting. The Porsche 911 Targa 4S, shown at bottom, has a retractable fabric roof.

The latest TAG Heuer Connected Golf Edition.
SMART AND SOPHISTICATED HIGH - END SMARTWATCHES BRING LUXURY TO THE TECH SECTOR 36
Opposite page: TAG Heuer; this page, from top: Montblanc; Hublot
hen Apple launched the Apple Watch in 2015, the Swiss mechanW ical watch industry quaked, unsure of
how the high-tech competition would impact the traditional market. A few brands, however, responded with their own upscale smartwatches to address the trend in wearable tech for the wrist. One of the leaders of the charge was TAG Heuer, which debuted its first Connected watch in 2015, hailed as the first Swiss luxury smartwatch. It used the brand’s popular Carrera-style case and ran on tech from partners Intel and Google. This year, TAG Heuer updated last year’s popular Connected Golf Edition ($2,550) with accurate course maps for more than 40,000 courses worldwide in new and improved 2-D on your wrist, as well as 3-D on your phone showing more detail along with simulated shot trajectories, emulating those shown on TV coverage of pro tournaments. The Driving Zone feature, which is unique to the brand, automatically shows the landing zones of your previous tee shots, so you can adjust your strategy accordingly. And the new Club Recommendation tool suggests a club based on your position and distance to the hole. Of course, you can also keep score.
“I love wearing this watch both on and off the course,” says brand ambassador and professional golfer Tommy Fleetwood, who will wear it on the PGA Tour. “The features are really wellthought-out, making the game more precise and I can’t think of a golfer whose game wouldn’t benefit from it.” TAG Heuer’s LVMH sister brand Hublot launched its first smartwatch in 2018 to mark the FIFA Football World Cup in Russia, with a soccer-centric angle and design codes from its flagship Big Bang model. Powered by Wear OS by Google, last year’s 42mm Big Bang e ($5,200) in black ceramic or titanium is designed for general everyday wear and features updated software with high-tech interpretations of traditional watch complications, including a perpetual calendar and GMT. Hublot also tapped its artist ambassador Marc Ferrero to create colorful dial animations that change over the course of the day. “Electronic watches were created in Switzerland using quartz in the 1970s,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot. “Fifty years later, we are continuing in the same innovative vein by producing a second smartwatch which boasts an extremely high level of technological sophistication, whilst embodying all the aesthetic values, technical features, and excellence that have ensured the reputation of our Big Bang collection.” Montblanc’s new Summit Lite ($860) smartwatch expands the brand’s tech lineup with a lightweight 43mm case crafted from recycled aluminum and stainless steel in matte black or silver/gray finishes paired with either a sporty fabric or rubber strap. Summit Lite is attuned to sport functions that track fitness, performance, and even well-being with a crisp AMOLED display. It’s also equipped with an updated
heart rate monitor and GPS, and is water-resistant to 5 ATM. In addition to Wear OS by Google apps and services, Montblanc developed proprietary apps including Cardio Coach, which offers personalized workout recommendations based on your current fitness level (VO2 max) and progress. Sleep and Stress apps analyze sleep patterns and stress levels, while the Body Energy app incorporates data from your sleep, activity, and stress level to chart mental and physical exhaustion levels. “With the renewed focus on health, fitness, mindfulness, and well-being we are witnessing today, our goal was to create a smartwatch that had just the right tools to support its owner throughout the day, in a way that was instinctive and effortless for today’s business lifestyle customer,” says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO. “Named Summit Lite after its lightweight design, it aligns with its wearer’s activities and is built for high-performing individuals who are constantly on the move and blend their workout routine with their work routine.”
The Montblanc Summit Lite smartwatch, shown at left, is extra lightweight. Below, the Hublot Big Bang e, designed for everyday wear with high-end finishes.

hen it comes to equestrian estates, property owners are passionate owners. Where they live and how they live is all about living to ride. “The best word I can come up with is completeness,” says Bridget Brandon, a farm and equine consultant who owns a 15-acre equestrian property in the Fort Worth, Texas, suburb of Argyle. Brandon, a former competitive jumper and now recreational rider, has four of her own horses and boards eight retired show horses on her land. She says that feeling of completeness is the culmination of skill, confidence in the saddle, and synergy with the horse that all comes together for a perfect ride. It’s a lifestyle that’s challenging, expensive, demanding, dirty, and, most of all, rewarding. Owners are all in. They like having control over the way their property is run, how their horses are cared for and “the freedom of going out and practicing on their own schedules,” says Thomas Baldwin of Equestrian Sotheby’s International Realty in Wellington, Fla., the epicenter of the winter equestrian world. Conversations are different in the equestrian community because owning land requires specialized know-how of what it takes to manage it. The talk is about water sources for horses rather than water features for aesthetics. Wellmaintained pastures are prioritized over well-tended landscaping. Baldwin says buyers often put the needs of their horses over their own. Equestrian communities thrive around the globe, particularly in Mexico, China, Brazil, and Argentina, according to the U.K.-based equine marketplace Horsemart. The U.S. has the most horse owners. Texas, California, and Florida lead the country. Cities like Lexington and Louisville, Ky.; Aiken, S.C.; and Ocala and Wellington, Fla., for instance, share a rich and historic riding culture. Some believe passion for the equestrian life is in the genes. Brandon is one of those people. She grew up a city girl, as well as a debutant. “Nobody in my family had anything to do with horses. But somehow my first word was ‘pony,’” she says. As a teen, she spent time cleaning stalls at a friend’s family farm in exchange for riding lessons and fell hard for the barn life. “It’s an all-encompassing sport that brings everybody together. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. All that matters is your love for horses.”
Welcome to the ultimate equestrian paradise. This nearly 55-acre estate property nestled within the prestigious gated community of Wellington Preserve in Wellington, Fla., is nothing short of exceptional. Custom built and with no expense spared, the property boasts a 64-stable barn, two world-class polo fields, and an all-weather riding arena with top of the line footing. Additionally, a remarkably designed clubhouse and outdoor courtyard complete with an outdoor kitchen offer both luxury and function. Comprising the courtyard are four distinct sections of stables, each with its own tack lounge and feed/utility room allowing for privacy. Two three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments await guests, while beautiful and efficient staff accommodations for up to 16 people lie adjacent to the barn. While aesthetically exquisite, function and ease of use are paramount in the design. With the ability to subdivide for flexibility and varying equestrian disciplines, and plenty of space to build the perfect estate home, this property is truly one of a kind.

Alvan Fuller, Runnymede Farm is located on the south side of Atlantic Avenue in North Hampton on the banks of Little River, an estuary that provides access to the Atlantic Ocean. Peter Fuller, a well-known businessman, philanthropist, and thoroughbred expert bred and kept horses there until the early 1980s. During this time Fuller owned the famous 1968 Kentucky Derby Winner Dancer’s Image. The Farm is comprised of a 4,080-square-foot barn, 3,000- square-foot caretaker residence, expansive paddocks, a riding/jumping arena, and other high-end equestrian amenities. The barn boasts 12 stalls, a central hay drop, a bathing bay with hot and cold water, a heated tack room, an office, a kitchen, and two half bathrooms.

‘MORE THAN A STOPOVER’ ARCHITECT MA YANSONG IS TRANSFORMING A CHINESE TRAIN STATION

MAD Architects (3)
The latest project from MAD Architects in Jiaxing, China, feels like a futuristic space station. It’s also surrounded by greenery.
megadestination for travelers and tourists alike. With this latest project, Ma—whose Beijing-based MAD Architects designed Absolute World condo towers in Toronto; Clover House kindergarten in Okazaki, Japan; the Conrad Beijing hotel; China’s Harbin Opera House; and Paris’ UNIC residential development—cements his reputation as the master of the Shanshui City. Derived from “shan” (mountain in Chinese) and “shui” (water), the Shanshui City concept, which was proposed by noted Chinese scientist Qian Xuesen in the 1980s, aims to bring humans and nature closer in urban contexts. The term, which also references a traditional type of Chinese landscape painting, is rooted in the ancient practice of siting cities based on observations of earth and water and on Chinese emperors’ strategies of choosing locations surrounded by natural environments to protect properties from enemy assaults. From the beginning of his career, Ma, who founded his architectural firm in 2004 and has a master’s degree in architecture from Yale University, has made significant contributions to urban architecture. A world judge at the 2018 Prix Versailles, Ma, 45, has received a number of accolades, including Good Design’s 2013 Designer of the Year Award and the 2013 Young Architect Award of China Architecture Design in the 21st Century.
Jiaxing, which is close to Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Suzhou, is a key city for several major industries, and its train station, which dates to 1907, moves more than five million people per year. “China’s train stations are competing to be bigger than one another,” Ma said in a statement. “Standing tall in the city like grand palaces, they are surrounded by large main roads, imposing viaducts, and often empty plazas. Rather than this pursuit of grand, monumental architecture, is it possible for urban train stations to create their own beautiful environment, with comfortable scales and a blend of transport and urban functions that are both efficient and humane? Is it possible for train stations to be more than a stopover for travelers but an urban public space that people can enjoy?” The Train Station in the Forest, which forms a borderless park with the surrounding area, is the sublime answer to his queries. Under Ma’s plan, the 87-acre site, which encompasses the train station and the plazas to the north and south of the adjacent People’s Park, becomes a cohesive whole. The historic train station, which was destroyed in 1937 at the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War, has been replicated and rebuilt and will serve as a railway museum. The “floating” roof of the new station, which looks like a futuristic space station and features solar photovoltaic panels, rises only a single story above ground to sync with the scale of the replica of the old station building. Ma’s “forest,” which includes a newly planted collection of canopy trees in front of the entrance terminal, grows over the station’s concourse, platforms, and waiting room, which are hidden underground. The underground waiting hall, which is illuminated with the natural light of skylights and a glass curtain wall on its ground floor, connects to the platforms via a futuristic tunnel. As riders walk through, they see the rebuilt old station overhead, a nod to the confluence of old and new that showcases the connection between past and future. Sunken courtyards connect the underground commercial space with the parkland above, which includes an area enclosed by landscaped public lawns suited for a variety of events ranging from festivals and concerts to open-air, farmers’ markets. The project, which adds a sixth track to the station when it opens in July, also provides connective links to the city’s bus terminals, a tramway, the subway, parking garages, and taxi stands. At peak time, the Train Station in the Forest, Ma’s new green urban center, will transport 2,300 people per hour to their destinations from the middle of an urban oasis. 47

FUTURISTIC FURNITURE FUTUREZONA’S FUNCTIONAL ART CAN BE MADE ENTIRELY CUSTOM ften, the best predictor of the future is the past. But for artist and furniture designer Ranbir Sidhu, founder and O principal designer of Futurezona, creation is rooted not in
what’s already possible, but in what is impossible. Sidhu founded Futurezona in 2015, and to describe it solely as a furniture company would be a cheat. “Futurezona is primarily an incubator for high concepts and a platform for the art of impossibilities,” the Toronto-based designer says. “It is a generator that borrows from the future, then produces with originality and uniqueness for the present. It is also an umbrella under which many far-fetched projects are born and realized.” While the concept of Futurezona may not be easy to parlay in simple terms, Sidhu’s work has been described as futuristic functional art. “Aesthetically, I am always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible with my design, so I would use ‘sculpture’ before I would say ‘furniture’ if I were describing what I develop,” he says. To that end, Sidhu and his team have been designing and creating functional one-of-a-kind large-scale art pieces and sculptures for interiors and exteriors. Because each piece is a bespoke creation based on the imaginings of the person for whom it’s designed and brought to life, the process of creation relies on collaboration. It’s this ability to take the dream world and turn it into reality that’s gotten Sidhu noticed by the likes of music stars Jay-Z and Drake.
INSPIRATION TAKES FLIGHT
Futurezona’s pieces are futuristic, functional art. No two pieces are the same and each is based on the imaginings of the owner.
Growing up, Sidhu was exposed to the craft of building and construction, which informed his love of geometry, fundamental shapes, pattern, and structure. “I was given a drafting table in my youth to fortify my artistic eye and draft the futuristic versioning I had in my head that you see being realized now,” he says. Today he translates those forms on the page into tangible works using an array of materials including precious metals such as gold, diamond dust, and platinum. “We will use any material that brings a rich finish to our product because once the item is completed, it has to reflect the hard work and thoughtfulness that went into it,” Sidhu says. He’s looked to everything from personal histories to cultural phenomenon to translate high-level concepts into structural form. “My design is a nod to culture (ancient, present, and future). Histories, and the impact they have and will continue to have, will often show up in the design. You’ll notice my affinity toward geometry in my current works. Reflection is
used in many ways as an inspiration, in an inward and outer sense,” Sidhu says. “Using industry-leading engineering and unique design, we take complexities and create simple, elegant, elevated art,” he says.

MAGIC IN MOTION
To understand Sidhu’s process of creation, take for example, the story of how a desk he designed for the Los Angeles offices of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation entertainment agency came into being. Upon seeing a photo of a paper airplane sculpture Sidhu had created, which was inspired by the Roc Nation logo, an executive invited Sidhu to make a suite of items for the company with the possibility for development. These included a “paper airplane” executive desk, a boardroom table in an identical shape, a chandelier made of airplane logos, and a scaled “Marcy Project of the Future” table with a replica, under glass, of Jay-Z’s childhood home in the Marcy Project public housing community in Brooklyn. From these, Futurezona manufac-
tured a “paper airplane” executive desk. The piece was constructed of CRS 1010 material, a low alloyed steel. Then it was coated in Bentley car paint (to meet the “museum-grade standards” Futurezona sets) and inscribed with a slogan using 88 dots, a number Jay-Z references in many songs. Gold and pearl flakes were added to lift the glistening look and feel of the airplane. “We engineered a striking, functional sculpture that had great significance to the Roc Nation brand…I wanted the airplane to appear to be made of a single sheet, mimicking a piece of paper,” Sidhu says. The desk was delivered in a custombuilt crate, which, naturally, was artwork in itself. “The most satisfying part of that journey was watching the shocked and delighted faces of the CEO and other staff members at the reveals,” Sidhu says. “When you can leave discerning people impressed, it’s a great feeling of satisfaction and inspiration.” Jay-Z moved the airplane desk from the office of the chief financial officer to the front lobby. Pieces created by Futurezona and Ranbir Sidhu, shown above, often incorporate company logos.

VIENNA’S TOP ADDRESS INNERE STADT IS THE HISTORIC AND EMOTIONAL HEART OF THE AUSTRIAN CITY 50
ncircled by the grand Ringstrasse (The Ring) boulevard, Innere Stadt, E Vienna’s old town, is the historic and
emotional heart of the Austrian capital. “It’s the best address you can have in Vienna,” says Martina Abiodun, a sales associate with Austria Sotheby’s International Realty, who adds that Vienna has been awarded the title of “most livable city in the world” for several years in a row by various organizations. “Some parts are elegant and fancy, but other parts are young and stylish enough to attract a very hip crowd.”

CENTURIES - OLD CONDOS AND APARTMENTS
A luxury penthouse with a view of historic Vienna, shown above. Palais Herzfeld, shown at top right, has an impressive outdoor entertaining space.
Innere Stadt, whose name means “Inner City,” is defined by old-world apartments and condos, most of which are early 20th-century houses and palaces in the Wilhelminian and Art Nouveau architectural styles. “Some of them are more than 300 years old,” Abiodun says. “There are hardly any new buildings because they are protected historically. Within the last decades, they have been carefully restored and modernized to match today’s standards of living on a high level.” Prices, she adds, are €10,000 to €30,000 per square meter of living area (US$12,027.60 to US$36,082.80), depending on location and amenities. “In the last several years, many luxury penthouses with big rooftop terraces, some of them with private pools, have been built on top of historic houses,” Abiodun says. “Usually, they offer a stunning view all over Vienna and all the luxury amenities a buyer at that price level desires.” WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
Innere Stadt is a cultural and commercial mecca. Some of the city’s most significant historical and most stunning architectural treasures are within its boundaries. St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna, is considered the most important religious building in the city. Its multicolored tiled roof defines Vienna’s skyline.
Karlskirche, or St. Charles’ Church, is another of Innere Stadt’s iconic religious monuments. The Baroque church, which dates to 1716, is dedicated to the 16th-century saint Charles Borromeo. The 13th-century Hofburg, or “Castle of the Court,” was once the principal palace of the Habsburg dynasty; today, it is the official residence and office of the president of Austria. Constructed from 1872 to 1883, the Neo-Gothic Wiener Rathaus or Vienna City Hall, which is renowned for its soaring central tower, is another architectural attraction. The neighborhood also houses the Austrian Parliament Building, a Greek Revival-style structure completed in 1883. For those more interested in present-day pursuits, Innere Stadt offers a variety of cultural institutions, theaters, designer shops, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. The department store Steffl sells a variety of luxury fashion brands such as Helmut Lang, Max Mara, Moschino, and Pucci. Brand boutiques, including Chanel, Dior, and Tiffany, are located in the prime shopping streets of Kohlmarkt, Tuchlauben, and Kärntner Strasse. There are many fine-dining options. Figlmüller, a family-owned restaurant that was established in 1905 and has three locations in the neighborhood, is legendary for its wiener schnitzel, and Plachutta, which is famous for its beef dishes—notably Tafelspitz (boiled beef)—has two locations in Innere Stadt that offer outdoor cafe-style seating. Popular night spots include Sky Bar, a terraced rooftop venue close to
St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and Eden Bar, which according to its website, has played host to the rich and the famous, including Joan Collins, Orson Welles, Ella Fitzgerald, and Liz Taylor, since its establishment in 1911. “There are always all kinds of cultural and musical events all year around that are free,” Abiodun says, adding that the Christmas markets and the film festival, in the Rathausplatz, the plaza in front of the city hall, attract thousands of people every season. Locals and visitors alike enjoy frequenting Innere Stadt’s Austrian coffee houses, which, Abiodun says, “have this unique and inviting atmosphere of past times and offer many sweet temptations, including strudels and cakes.” She adds that Café Central, which has been a meeting place of the city’s glitterati since 1876, “probably has the most beautiful architecture of all coffee shops in Vienna,” and the Café Sacher Wien, which is next to the hotel of the same name, “is well known for the famous and most original Sacher torte—a rich and delicious chocolate cake.” For relaxation, residents often head to Stadtpark, a 16-acre green spot where, Abiodun says, “you can stroll around or sit and watch the ducks in the pond.” There is so much to do and see in Innere Stadt, she says, that some families have been residents for generations. “It also is, of course, the No. 1 sought-after area for buyers from all over the world who want to have a second or third home in Vienna,” she adds. 51

SCENT-SATIONAL AN OLFACTORY ARTIST MAKES TRULY PERSONALIZED PERFUMES AND FRAGRANCES
Marissa Zappas in her Brooklyn laboratory.
f all the senses, smell is perhaps the most mysterious. Experienced O in the present, yet indelibly connected
to our past, it is as timeless as it is ephemeral. Imagine a perfume specifically designed by a master perfumer to conjure up your favorite memories—be they an evening walk among blooming jasmine, a bitter coffee your father favored, or all of the above. “To have a custom perfume made is a true luxury and ultimate pleasure,” says Brooklyn-based bespoke perfumer and olfactory artist Marissa Zappas. “It is my job to take pleasure seriously.” A classically trained dancer with a master’s degree in anthropology, she followed her lifelong obsession with perfume to study under renowned perfumer Olivier Gillotin of Givaudan (Polo Red, Tobacco Vanille, Higher) in New York. “There’s something really valuable in the knowledge and wisdom that gets passed down,” she says. Zappas credits Gillotin for teaching her that for a perfumer, scents are memories. “There is something profound about seeing one’s self reflected in art, especially when that art is evocative of spirit, is invisible, and encapsulates the most important memories of a lifetime.” It’s a sentiment that has roots in the 18th century, when personal perfumers were de rigueur at Versailles, and were responsible for scenting wigs, garters, and gloves, as well as the décolletage. The relationships formed were sacred, and fragrance formulations kept under lock and key. “I want to bring back this highly personalized and intimate approach to fragrance in 2021 where commercial fragrances are dominant and often redundant,” Zappas says. The California native brings her highly tailored approach to both men and women, and also to the home: Room sprays and oil blends for cold-air diffusers are on the bespoke menu as well. Over the course of a commission with her, the client is intimately involved in the creative process, which Zappas describes as being “satisfying, beautiful, and personal.”
Opposite page: Rinze van Brug; this page: Emily R. Farache
“One of the many definitions of perfume is [that] it’s something to be forgotten, and then remembered,” Zappas says. As a modern-day memory finder, Zappas gently prods each client’s unique scent memories to construct a personalized narrative composed of diverse aromas. “I become attached to each perfume and each person throughout this process, because you really learn a lot about people hearing their scent memories,” she says. One of her clients had dear memories of growing up riding horses in Pennsylvania, so Zappas included notes of hay and soft leather, as well as some classic animalic notes. She also had nostalgia for Choward’s Violet candies, so Zappas centered the perfume on a sweet Parma violet accord (from Parma, Italy). “There are ways of constructing and tailoring a fragrance very specifically and thoughtfully to an individual, and this, as well as getting to know them in the process, is my favorite part,” she says. In this case, the final perfume had a soft musk and leather base, a Parma violet heart (the main body of the fragrance), and some ethereal top notes. The client, a writer/director, loved the final creation, which arrived in an Italian white painted glass bottle. “I could literally smell how much you care about what you do!” she texted Zappas. “I understand my clients’ scent preferences, which can be difficult because there’s no language for smell,” Zappas explains. “We use more subjective words to describe scent, like tastes and emotions.” Zappas’ process goes even deeper than learning a client’s favorite fragrances. Her subsequent questions delve into intention, emotion, and practicality. Then, working from her Brooklyn laboratory, she creates the first tester, or “mod.” Working from feedback with two or three additional mods, Zappas concocts the final product: a perfume that is an entirely unique fragrance, just like those made for Marie Antoinette in Versailles’ la cour parfumée. “Each client owns their formula, so I cannot reproduce it” for anyone else, she says. Ever.
Among the custom offerings are room sprays, fragrances for men and women, and oil blends for cold-air diffusers.

BESPOKE BEAUTY DIRECT-TO - CONSUMER COMPANIES OFFER PRODUCTS FOR EVERY FACE
veryone’s complexion is unique, be it dry, sensitive, normal, combination, E or oily and prone to breakouts. There-
fore, skin care shouldn’t have a one-sizefits-all approach, but should instead be geared to each individual. Nowadays, people can complete an online skin evaluation, receive recommendations tailored to their skin type, and get a customized regimen delivered to their door. These five bespoke beauty brands offer personalized products for every face.
Environment, lifestyle, and other factors play a considerable role in your skin’s well-being, and Proven considers each when curating a custom routine. Made in the U.S. by Stanford University scientists, the line curates three multifunctional products—a cleanser, day moisturizer with SPF, and night cream—based on a 47-question “Skin Genome Quiz,” which takes about five to 10 minutes to complete. Because skin needs evolve depending on the seasons, stress, and life events, Proven recommends retaking the test every five to seven weeks. Expect a combination of natural and nontoxic ingredients in the brand’s offerings. For a one-time order of a 45- to 60-day supply, the price is $145. For subscribers, the set costs $119, with the option of repeat shipments every four, six, or eight weeks. ATOLLA
If you’re unsure what type of skin you have, Atolla offers an online skin assessment to aid the company’s chemists in creating a custom serum just for you. Their bespoke recipes consider allergies, medications, and more, and you’ll be provided with tips on integrating the formula into your current skin-care routine. As a customer, you’ll be able to try out the company’s at-home testing tools and consult with in-house aestheticians to measure your skin’s progress, adjusting ingredients as needed. Atolla’s 54
serums don’t contain phthalates, parabens, sulfates, or added fragrances, and they’re vegan and cruelty-free. The retail price for a bottle is $45 per month.

Acne is a condition that people of all ages struggle with, and dermatologist Dr. David Lortscher’s “skin care made simple” line claims to benefit 88% of users. Curology matches you with one of its licensed medical providers who customize prescriptions and can guide you and your skin in the right direction. The process is simple: upload a no makeup selfie and fill out the online skin evaluation, and you’ll receive your free 30-day trial along with a treatment plan in a matter of days (there is a $4.95 shipping fee). Repeat shipments are automatic and go out every 30 or 60 days depending on the subscription. Results may take up to 12 weeks, but you may see clearer skin in as little as six weeks. The cost ranges from $24.90 to $59.50. THE PEEL CONNECTION
Nidah Barber-Raymond is an aesthetician, peel expert, and founder of The Peel Connection, a clinic in Beverly Hills. While those who live in Southern California can schedule an in-person appointment, customers around the country can complete a questionnaire, and she’ll ship the clinic’s specialized
formulas. Her professional home chemical peels consist of two steps and video instruction, and should leave skin noticeably smoother and more radiant, ultimately brightening the complexion. According to Barber-Raymond, the peels allow the face to absorb products more readily and stimulate a collagen response, making skin tighter and fine lines less noticeable, too. BarberRaymond recommends three peels four weeks apart for best results. A single peel costs $99 and a set of three, $241.

COPPER CONNECTION AT THE HELM OF A 190 -YEAR - OLD COOKWARE COMPANY, MAUVIEL’S VALÉRIE LE GUERN GILBERT IS MAKING HISTORY

Copper cookware from Mauviel is handcrafted with cooks in mind and, like the 190-year-old company itself, should last generations.
an eye to the future is a delicate balance. “When you work in a family business, you are just one generation in the middle of the story,” says Gilbert, the first woman in seven generations to run the esteemed French cookware company. So when it came time to celebrate the company’s 190th anniversary, Gilbert made sure that Mauviel’s 19-piece commemorative copper cookware set, “Ernst,” named for Mauviel’s founder, told a story bridging the 19th and 21st centuries. Highlights inside the set’s handbeaten aluminum box include a soufflé mold, an oval pan—ideal for a potato gratin—and a charlotte mold, for desserts such as charlotte aux pommes, trifles, and puddings. The egg cups are as useful for a soft-boiled egg as they are as a pen cup. “Personally, I use the Champagne bucket to put my flowers in,” Gilbert, 53, says. Gilbert’s favorite piece in the set is the bilevel copper-stainless steel
smokehouse. “It’s a mix of old and new. The handles represent the past, while the combination of stainless steel, copper, and the glass lid is a nod to modernity. It’s nice on the table, nice in the kitchen, and because it’s a steamer, it’s on trend with healthy eating.” Founded in 1830 in the Normandy town of Villedieules-Poêles, which roughly translates to “God’s City of Pans,” but is better known as the City of Copper, both the company and the cookware have been passed down generation to generation. As the last copper factory still ringing with the sound of hammering, in a city that was once copper’s capital, Mauviel is the progenitor of copper manufacturing, a responsibility to which Gilbert is keenly attuned. “When I say that Mauviel is a family business, I’m not only talking about my family, but also about our family of employees,” Gilbert says. “Ernst” was partly designed with its employees in mind; new designs keep coppersmiths actively engaged with centuries-old manufacturing techniques, inspiring confidence in the longevity of the company. Since its humble beginnings, the family-run company has retained its ties with tradition; choosing to manufacture its products almost entirely by hand, just as it did 190 years ago. Gilbert became Mauviel’s first female president in 2006, replacing two men: her father and her uncle. “I knew people were watching me: I was the boss’s daughter, I was a woman,” Gilbert recalls. “One of my friends told me everyone in town was sure I would fail. You have to be patient; you have to prove that even if you are a woman, even if you are the daughter of your father, you can succeed.” And she appreciates the responsibility. “It’s a way to help make society better for women; to prove that women have their place everywhere. One day, women won’t have to prove themselves all the time. We can manage a company; we can have kids.” As Mauviel stands poised to enter the American market in a more pronounced way—with partnerships and collaborations with chefs, and a new e-commerce website—the proof, so to speak, is in the copper. “If you really want the best tools to cook, it’s with copper,” Gilbert says. “Copper allows for the best conductivity, rapidity, uniformity, and control.” Indeed, Julia Child stocked her kitchen with gleaming copper pots and pans, Jacques Pépin did a collection with Mauviel in 2017, Daniel Boulud’s latest New York City restaurant, Daniel Boulud Kitchen, uses Mauviel’s copper line for induction cooktops, and Chuck Williams stocked his first Williams-Sonoma store with Mauviel—purchased on credit. As not everyone will be able to buy “Ernst,” Gilbert suggests starting with one or two pieces, such as a sauté pan or a chef’s pan, and building on. “The quality is forever.” 57

ON A ROLL UNIQUE SPINS ON THE LOBSTER ROLL, THAT ULTIMATE SUMMER STAPLE
here’s no sandwich that’s more synonymous with summertime than T a lobster roll. It’s as simple as it is tasty, and depending on where it’s served, you can enjoy it New England style (hot with melted butter) or Maine style (cold with mayo). But many eateries are introducing their own spins on the seasonal favorite, with surprising flavors. BROWN BUTTER LOBSTER ROLL, EVENTIDE OYSTER CO., PORTLAND, MAINE, AND BOSTON
The James Beard Award-winning seafood restaurant serves its lobster roll in a classic New England style, but the roll takes its inspiration from an Asian favorite. The Brown Butter Lobster Roll comes in a house-made bao, a Chinesestyle steamed bun. “We wanted our lobster roll to be something wholly different—evocative of the delicious classic, but distinct enough to be entirely our own,” says Mike Wiley, chef and owner of Eventide. The lobster roll is prepared with brown butter, which Wiley says “lends a jammy concentrated dairy to the sweet, rich, hand-torn lobster meat.” And it also can be prepared gluten-free. THE CLOBSTER ROLL, THE CRABBY SHACK, BROOKLYN, N.Y.

Gwen Woods and Fifi Bell-Clanton’s Crown Heights-based eatery is a mecca for seafood lovers, especially those who love crabs. And just as its name suggests, the Clobster Roll is a half-crab, halflobster sandwich. The roll is packed with premium Alaskan snow crab and lobster meat, with the crab tossed in a butter sauce and the lobster tossed with their signature Shack sauce, and served warm on a lightly toasted bun. Woods says the roll was created because “our customers were always torn between the Crab Roll and the Lobster Roll. It’s the best of both worlds in one sandwich.” CURRY LOBSTER ROLL, BITE INTO MAINE, LOCATIONS ACROSS MAINE
This Maine mainstay has a variety of unusual lobster rolls on its menu, but perhaps none as unique as the Curry Lobster Roll. And that’s by design, according to co-owner Sarah Sutton. “When we started our Bite into Maine food cart [in 2011], we knew we wanted to do one thing exceptionally well— lobster rolls,” Sutton says. “We had only been living in Maine for five years and
couldn’t understand why lobster rolls in Maine were only made with mayo or butter. We thought to ourselves, ‘why not incorporate other flavors that we’re fond of?’” So Sutton and her husband, Karl, created different kinds of mayo, including Indian curry mayo, which has been featured since opening day. The mayo has a vibrant yellow color from the turmeric in the curry, and Sutton describes it as “a marriage of sweet lobster and savory curry, without heat or saltiness.”
The James Beard Award-winning Eventide Oyster Co. serves its roll on a house-made bao bun.
ANGRY LOBSTER, THE HAPPY LOBSTER, CHICAGO
Longtime friends Alex Robinson, Tyler Cullitan, and Neal Bassett started The Happy Lobster in 2014 as a way to live out their dreams of opening a food truck. And while they have a traditional New England-style lobster roll on its menu called Happy Lobster, they also have its fiery opposite: the Angry Lobster. And true to its name, this lobster roll is served New England-style with an emphasis on heat, as it’s prepared with special seasoning, hot giardiniera, and spicy mayo. DIABLO LOBSTER ROLL, SHINNECOCK LOBSTER FACTORY, SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y.
If you’re looking for a lobster roll with an edge, the Diablo Lobster Roll might be for you. Chef and co-owner Marco Barrila, who was born and raised in Sicily, created the Diablo Lobster Roll on a whim, yet also as a nod to his heritage. “One of my top specialities is lobster fra diavolo, which I make with black squid linguine,” he says. “One time I was making a lobster roll, and I was thinking, ‘why not use my beautiful fra diavolo sauce for the roll?’” Barrila says it was an immediate hit, especially because he created it during wintertime, and his clientele—including members of the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, where the restaurant is located—welcomed the amped-up heat and spice. Served on a toasted and buttered brioche roll with homemade potato chips, Barrila describes the Diablo Lobster Roll’s flavor as having a spicy, earthy quality. “The flavor is like dipping a piece of bread into a beautiful spicy tomato sauce—that also has a chunk of fresh Maine lobster [inside it].” 59
MEZCAL’S MOMENT This page: Getty Images; opposite page, from left: Doña Vega; Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

RESIDE SUMMER 2021
THIS MEXICAN SPIRIT, PRODUCED FOR MORE THAN 400 YEARS, IS GAINING POPULARITY
here are few spirits with a greater sense of place than mezcal. One sip T of the smoky, agave spirit and you are
immediately transported to the palm tree-lined, sunny climes of Mexico. To be specific about it, you are taken to Oaxaca, a mountainous, largely rural state in the southwest. Locals have been producing the spirit since the 16th century, when Spanish colonizers introduced distillation techniques to the region. Today, both in and outside of Mexico, mezcal is having a moment. Production surged from just under one million liters in 2011 to 7.1 million in 2019, according to the Mezcal Consejo Regulador, a Mexican regulatory body—a 600% increase. “People are learning there is more to mezcal than the homogenized flavors we’re used to from the spirits world,” says Lou Bank, the Chicago-based founder of Sacred, a nonprofit that supports mezcal producers. “They’re then diving into that different world to better understand it.” For American consumers, mezcal provides a smoky, sophisticated alternative to tequila (which is, in fact, a type of mezcal.) And because mezcal still lags way behind other liquors, making up just 0.06% of the global alcohol market, there also remains a whiff of exclusivity about it, which appeals to a certain hipster-leaning sipper. Popular brands like Ilegal, Madre, and Doña Vega lean into this aesthetic with art-forward, edgy branding.
bounty: Of the 300 or so agave varieties, around 40 of them are found in Oaxaca. Each one has a different taste. The brand Del Maguey, founded by the American artist Ron Cooper, went a long way in burgeoning Oaxaca’s mezcal cred. “Before Cooper began bringing these beautifully made, heritage agave spirits out of Oaxaca and into the world, everyone north of the border thought mezcal was the tequila with the worm in it,” Bank says. “Cooper’s Del Maguey project showed us the traditions that got lost.” The spotlight has also done wonders for the economy of Oaxaca, Mexico’s second-poorest state. In Oaxaca, locals will savor any occasion for a pour (in the Zapotec village of Teotitlán del Valle, famous for its exquisite weavers, locals serve it with breakfast). In the traditional way, mezcal is sipped from a jicama shell. In bars or restaurants, you get it in a church candle glass. For special occasions, Oaxacans pull out pechuga, a mezcal distilled with herbs, fruits, nuts, and a chicken or turkey breast hung over the distillation pot, adding a meaty flavor to the brew (pechuga means breast.) The brand Vamonos Riendo (“let’s go laughing”) uses a method inspired by pechuga in their bright, fruity-tasting mezcal.
WHAT IS IT?
Many brands of mezcal have gotten bold with their packaging. The smoky liquor has an air of exclusivity to it.
Watching mezcal be made is almost as enjoyable as drinking it. First, the agave plant is stripped of its leaves down to its heart, or piña, which does, in fact, resemble a pineapple. The piñas are quartered and roasted for up to a week over river stones in an earthen pit, layered with dried and shredded agave pulp. Afterward, an enormous stone wheel, powered by donkeys, crushes the piñas. After fermentation, the mash is distilled in copper stills. Most mezcaleros still insist on doing it in this old-school way, proudly spurning modern efficiencies. WHY OAXACA?
Much of Oaxaca’s sterling mezcal reputation stems from its biological
WHERE TO DRINK
Certainly, the best destination to experience mezcal is Oaxaca. In the state capital, Oaxaca City, book a tasting class at La Mezcaloteca, where you’ll learn the differences between varieties and try small-batch bottles not found anywhere else. Mezcal is best enjoyed straight, Bank says, but some great cocktails include the Smoky Paloma and the Oaxacan Old Fashioned. There are a few top-notch brands available in America these days: Yola Mezcal is an ethically made brand that hires only female producers; Doña Vega, which dials back the smokiness in its bottles, is excellent for beginners. At the end of the day, though, for the full mezcal experience, one should still travel south. “When I’m standing around a wood-fired clay-pot still in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca, or next to an enormous wooden condenser in Queréndaro, Michoacán, drinking spirits out of a jicara the size of my head, that’s when I’m happiest,” says Bank. Sometimes there is no substitute. 61

STYLISH CHESS SETS THE GAME IS HAVING ITS MOMENT; MAKE THE MOST OF IT WITH THESE CHIC TAKES
invented in the 6th century, was already perfectly primed for the pandemic (and increased time spent at home), and chess has now also experienced nothing short of a widespread resurgence in interest due to The Queen’s Gambit, a hugely popular Netflix miniseries about a 1960s female chess champion. In fact, while there was reporting early on of a shortage of chess sets after the show first aired, happily, it seems that fears of being unable to find a pawn or rook may be behind us. With demand for stylish, high-end chess sets on the rise, here are three we love most: A REPURPOSED SET
The lavish Shagreen Chess Set from AERIN, shown at top, is an instant keepsake. A peek into the process of making a repurposed chess set from GoodWood, shown at bottom.
If you’ve been dreaming of playing chess using a board created with repurposed wood, GoodWood Nola, a New Orleans-based custom furniture firm, has just the board for you. This one is made of several different kinds of materials, all leftovers from their large commercial projects. “This includes small scraps of wood, brass, and hardware that would otherwise end up being
stored or thrown out,” says Jordan Gurren Rose, GoodWood’s co-founder and owner. “Second, we use the reclaimed wood—this is typically antique pine or cypress—that’s pulled from old houses in New Orleans when they are being torn down or renovated.” Price: $185. A GLAMOROUS GAME
For the aspiring grandmaster in your life, the lavish Shagreen Chess Set from AERIN, a luxury brand founded by Aerin Lauder, will become an instant keepsake. This is a decidedly contemporary twist on a traditional chess set, thanks to its streamlined chess pieces, one in black and one with a gold-plated finish all presented in a shagreen box with brass detailing. We know for sure that this is one set you’ll want to display on your coffee table. Price: $3,250. A CUSTOM BOARD
Reed Caputo, a furniture designer and owner of Reed Caputo Studio in Sayville, N.Y., recently created a traditional, regulationsize mahogany and maple wood chess set for a Queen’s Gambit fan, using repurposed materials from that client’s own home. “Splitting time between bingeing The Queen’s Gambit and cleaning out the attic, my client came to me with a request for a customized set made out of the materials that were uncovered along the way,” Caputo says. “This is the type of thing you want to pass down for generations so quality is key here,” he says, suggesting you should always seek out a set that’s functional, affordable, and durable. “There’s definitely something to be said about personalized handcrafted items that embody a feeling of nostalgia.” Price: $175-$300.

TERRY MCMILLAN’S FAVORITE SUMMER READS THE AUTHOR OF WAITING TO EXHALE AND HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK TELLS US WHAT WE SHOULD READ NEXT erry McMillan is a seasoned novelist with a number of bestsellers— T including Waiting to Exhale and How
Matthew Jordan Smith (portrait)
Stella Got Her Groove Back, both of which had film adaptations that were box office smashes—but the experience of publishing her most recent book was a new one. That novel, It’s Not All Downhill From Here, came out on March 31, 2020—right after nationwide lockdowns due to the Covid-19 pandemic. To her disappointment, McMillan had to cancel plans for a book tour and other appearances, and couldn’t interact with her fans. “It was definitely a learning experience about how lives can change, without us having anything to do with it,” McMillan says. The book, too, is about unexpected change: The world of protagonist Loretha Curry, 68, is upended by a sudden loss. For McMillan, who is 69, it was important to show that aging does not have to mean losing one’s lust for life. “I don’t feel old. I’m still having so
much fun, and life is still interesting, and there’s a lot to look forward to— including the present moment,” she says. “You can’t worry about how things are going to end. Enjoy what you’re doing right now!” Key to enjoying the present, for McMillan, is accepting what you can and can’t control. It’s no coincidence that the novel she’s currently writing, which she began during the pandemic, will be called Safety. “Being isolated makes you think about things you hadn’t paid as much attention to. That’s when I started feeling I had more control. You’re either going to suffer or going to survive, and I chose to survive,” she says. “To some extent it’s comforting that we’re all in this together.” McMillan is hopeful about the months to come, and hope will be a prominent theme of her new book. While readers wait eagerly for its publication, they can turn to her recommended summer reads.

Years ago I wrote a book from a male’s point of view, but I don’t think they’re all that complicated.” BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES
“This anthology is published each year and features great new writers. Some people don’t respect the value of short stories. A short story is usually a moment in time, and it’s not meant to solve everything. It’s meant to have you travel emotionally to a point where whatever a character was going through reaches a clearing. It’s almost more powerful than some novels. They capture a single emotion, a single moment. A lot of us as readers tend to overlook those moments.” 63

No one likes to guess whether meat is cooked to the right temperature, and the best way to remove chance from the equation is with help from Meater+, a smart, wireless meat thermometer.

and the wire brushes required to keep a grill clean after each use with the Grillbot Automatic Grill Cleaning Robot. Much like a Roomba takes to a dirty floor, the Grillbot, once placed on a dirty grill, uses three dishwasher-safe brass brushes to scrape grill grates clear of any leftover cooking residue. For $89.95, the Grillbot utilizes a rechargeable lithium ion battery and a smart CPU chip to control the direction and speed of the device. AN EVEN SMOKE
