he Cable Wine Systems® has become the “must have” feature for both residential and commercial wine collections. Its sophisticated and versatile nature provides clients the freedom to create cellars and/ or displays that are both functional and beautiful, while adding value to any home or business property. The Cable Wine System® may be placed in a cooled or uncooled environment, and the quality and construction of the Cable Wine System® is second to none. Whether you prefer to organize your bottles neck out or label view, the versatility of the Cable Wine System® allows for consistent airflow throughout the entire collection, all while making every bottle easy to locate and access. Today’s consumers who are constantly searching for fresh ideas that reflect their own personal tastes and style will appreciate the creative flexibility that the Cable Wine System® has to offer over more traditional wine storage options. Available in a variety of contemporary finishes (chrome, silver pearl, satin black, and satin gold), the Cable Wine System® provides clients with the flexibility to mix and match in order to create a cellar or feature wine display that is truly one of a kind and unique to them. Whether a customer’s design style is more traditional or modern, this system can be customized to enhance or compliment any space.

Along with the versatility of its installation options, the minimalist nature of the Cable Wine Systems® also provides clients with excellent label visibility, and can accommodate a wider variety of bottle sizes within the same column from 375ml-1500ml (1.5L), without having to deviate from the standard configuration or needing to purchase additional parts. Sold by the piece and hand assembled on site by a qualified contractor, proper reinforcement is key with the installation of this tension-based system. Whether installed from ceiling to floor or within cabinetry, this wine racking system is equally stunning. The vertical cables are available in two lengths (10’ and 20’) that can be modified on site. Clients also have the ability to design their system to store fewer than the maximum number of bottles in order to highlight features behind or beyond the system such as stone work or accent walls. The high visibility through the system has also made it ideal to use as a dividing line between two larger rooms or spaces.

As wine cellars are ever evolving to include more contemporary designs and features such as works of art, unique furniture, and other prized possessions, the collecting and storage of wine continues to become increasingly more popular. Whereas basements used to be the “go to” spot for most wine storage areas, with modern refrigeration options, wine cellars and displays can now be incorporated almost anywhere. Steve Papadimitriou, the owner and creator of the family owned and operated Cable Wine Systems®, recently stated “I am very excited to be able to offer our client’s a variety of choices when it comes to designing and creating a wine racking system for their home. We are continuously exploring new ideas when it comes to finishes, following the trends, and staying flexible when it comes to design, all the while remaining true to our original vision for the Cable Wine System®.” For additional information and inspiration please visit www.CableWineSystems.com

ou’ve found a property with the most breathtaking view, your piece of paradise. You’ve created a vision that is your heart’s desire, your dream home. Make sure you enjoy the full view. Hope’s Windows, Inc. provides extraordinary homes with the world’s finest steel and bronze windows and doors—timeless in appearance and enduring for generations. To say that Hope’s is the source of the world’s finest windows and doors is a bold statement! However Randy Manitta, President/CEO of the company, makes this claim with a depth of personal knowledge deriving from a 44-year tenure in the industry. Hope’s is the oldest and largest manufacturer of steel and bronze windows and doors in the United States. Designing and handcrafting solid steel and bronze windows and doors since 1912, the company continues to refine the art that makes their products the most sought-after, luxurious and longest lasting in the world. Hope’s solid steel and bronze windows and doors have a distinct appearance characterized by uniquely delicate frames and large areas of glass. This refined quality of elegance is impossible to achieve with other mediums. “Steel is one of the first raw materials used in the fabrication of windows, though it is often one of the least understood,” contends Manitta. Solid steel and bronze are stronger than any other window and door materials— strength that allows for substantially thinner frames, larger glass lites, and virtually unlimited scale and shape. This strength and design flexibility translates to more natural light and wider views. Moreover, steel and bronze have a better natural insulating capability compared to other metals such as aluminum. This, together with modern advancements in glazing, results in exceptional thermal performance and condensation resistance.

Photograph by IMG_INK

Hope’s engineers took that performance to new heights with the innovation of Thermal Evolution technology. This system, exclusive to the brand, is an advanced thermal break that enhances performance without splitting the steel frames, thus maintaining the structural integrity of the steel. Defying the austere ruggedness often associated with steel, Hope’s windows and doors become a tactile piece of the architecture—a surprisingly opulent interaction with smooth, graceful movement at the touch of a finger. The story of a Hope’s window or door begins with the transformation of raw steel into geometrically complex and remarkably strong frame profiles through a process called hot-rolling. Hope’s solid, hot-rolled steel profiles are exclusive to the brand. Each is engineered with strength, purpose, and aesthetics in mind. Every Hope’s window and door is completely custom and crafted by hand to achieve your specific aesthetic and performance criteria. Manitta explains that this sort of production is not typical in the modern industry. “In today’s world, you usually see more automation,” he says, adding that the Hope’s facility often reminds visitors of the blacksmith’s shops of a bygone era. Walking through the door of Hope’s factory is like taking a step back in time. You hear the din of hammers and tools as craftsmen use 100-year-old methods to give shape and form to steel. Each step of the process is completed with unrivaled artistry by a practiced hand and an expert eye. It takes time, but it is the only way to ensure windows designed to last for generations.

“We place great trust in our craftsmen,” emphasizes Robert DuBois, Vice President/Operations. “It’s an art, and the countless luxury homes and prestigious buildings across the country are a testament to their skills.” Whether you are restoring an historic property or building anew, Hope’s windows and doors fit every variety of architecture from grand, traditional estates to sleek, contemporary homes. Every Hope’s window and door is custom crafted to your specific vision. Each curve, profile and placement, material and finish fully reflects your individual style. Widely regarded for their ability to customize and meet virtually any design and performance criteria, Hope’s went beyond to create an entirely new product that replicates and preserves the historic window features of the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The resulting arrow-shaped profiles are unique to the present-day market. This incredibly thin and elegant arrowshaped profile became increasingly popular, and demand grew for doors and other operational types in the residential market. Hope’s responded and is delighted to announce the release of their new complete product line—Hope’s Old World Suite.

Hope’s enterprising team never stops imagining how its products can evolve, from rethinking the smallest details to designing entirely new systems. This dedication to innovation has maintained Hope’s place in the forefront of the field for more than 100 years. Hope’s subjects its products to more third party testing and certifications than any other steel window and door manufacturer. The company’s uncommon diligence provides peace of mind and delivers proven performance and protection from harsh climates, extreme weather events, and corrosive coastal environments. For more than a century, Hope’s handcrafted steel and bronze windows and doors have been synonymous with longevity and quality. From the development of truly visionary design concepts through an unparalleled finishing process, Hope’s is the first choice in premium quality steel and bronze windows and doors built to last a lifetime and beyond. www.HopesWindows.com

he more difficult a high-end product is to attain, the more originality and uniqueness it possesses. The wooden diving boards by Mikel Tube certainly enters this category. What once started as a single project has now become a full time activity with customers all over the world. Years of experience are the foundation of their quality and constant innovation. This makes them unique - and the last of their kind remaining. Each board is handcrafted and can be personalized to your wishes. The specific design could be created by the very pure and light surface with a solid backbone which is invisible due the particular assembling. This allows Mikel Tube to change the length of the board to your wishes. Winner of the Los Angeles International Design Awards in 2014 for the Revelation 1 model and now competing with the new Derover 1 model, a certain success. In 2020, the Derover 1 was launched and immediately got the attention of the industry. Some describe it as a piece of art. Indeed the new techniques used have allowed to create a stunning wooden diving board without losing the initial basic design that distinguishes the products of Mikel Tube.

The best wood for a diving board is Brazilian hardwood TAMBUIA, better known as IPE. It offers strength and flexibility while also being very sustainable. But this kind of wood also needs a particular approach. Unlike classic types of wood, IPE has its own way. Years of experience have ensured that those special assembly techniques are mastered by Mikel. Starting with the exclusive “floating” technique® at first and now releasing the innovative “tension” technique®, makes the wooden diving boards of Mikel Tube unique. Design, innovation, respect for nature and a constant effort to improve are the main pillars of the brand that pioneered the use of specific techniques. Located in Belgium, they are proud to export the bulk of their production all over the world, adding the Belgian sense of precision and correctness in the package. Is a handcrafted wooden diving board the icing on the cake? You might think of Mikel’s designs like a jewel that finalizes the whole project, be it a swimming pool or a motor yacht. The owner has made a real effort to find the top location, a pool designer who perfectly embeds the project into this environment, a pool builder then carefully deploys what has been conceived. All this effort will stand out with a beautiful diving board. Compare it with dressing up for a special evening, the jewel will be put on last, the finishing touch to make it all perfect. Once a week, Mikel takes the time to discuss projects remotely via video conferencing, after which he would reach out to Robert in Melbourne or Caroline in Los Angeles for example. “How would you want our customers to trust us unless they can reach us” would be his most repeated guideline.

After a customer has initiated a request, a dedicated point-of-contact will be designated to help this particular customer through the whole process. Starting with advice on the type of board or the size of the bracket, then entering the phase of safety communication and maintenance and finally ending with the helping hand on shipping and delivery, there is always one dedicated personal contact for every customer. Renowned all over the world and adopted by the most beautiful residential pools and motor yachts on the planet. Mikel Tube stands for personal relationships with customers. A small dedicated team handles the one to one contact creating a trustful relationship over any geographical distance. Mikel personally gives advice and creates the design of the global project if requested. Blending beauty, fun, and functionality is what design is all about. Combining quality, style, and affordability is the real challenge. Every design lover knows it comes with a price. Finding the delicate balance between quality, affordability, and style. These is the key elements to creating a unique product that sells. Mikel advises every pool owner to add a diving board as a safety measure. Water is not the natural habitat for people, so safety should be one of the major concerns of a pool owner. A diving board will orient the diver to the deep end of your pool, making him dive from the spot where he/she can not touch the bottom of the pool. Diving from the deck on the shallow end will always be dangerous. Some of Mikel’s customers use the diving board cover to give a clear message to their children that the pool is not open. Mikel will even have a specific message embroidered on the cover if requested. One of the major impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the company is the surging cost of shipping. The boards, with an average weight of 220 pounds, are packed in special designed, reusable crates. The pandemic led to a worldwide crisis in aviation and with less space available, ocean freight is also now offered as a possibility for the patient customer. But the COVID-19 pandemic also brought some challenges that were less expected. The ban on travel makes it difficult to have photoshoots at the exotic places where Mikel’s customers reside. Instead, the team at Mikel Tube will reach out to their existing customers in 2021 and request that they enter the world wide competition for the most beautiful project. The winners, based on the number of likes on the dedicated Instagram portal, will be rewarded with the optional Diving Bench model. www.WoodenDivingBoards.com

immie Martin has been an established luxury brand since 2004. Based in London, United Kingdom, Jimmie Martin’s main focus is on hand painted pieces of furniture. They are best know for transforming pieces of furniture into unique one-off pieces that become personal to their clients. The majority of their pieces made today are commissions. When placing a commission, the client has an extensive choice from a wide range of frames, fabrics and finishes, all while being guided through the process to ensure the right pieces and the right finishes are chosen. The team at Jimmie Martin is happy to discuss any type of projects with you and work towards a proposal that will fit your individual requirements. What is the profile of the owner for Belgrave Place? This client is a 35 year old single female, who has several properties around the world. She has a huge interest in art, fashion and she travels a lot. She is also an investor in several art / fashion / property businesses. The client purchased this property seven years ago but had never lived in it. Whilst being out of the country for the past few years, the client had initially hired another interior design company to refurbish this apartment but on her return she came back to something she was not happy with. It was all very boring and bland, especially for such a grand property in such a prime central London location. So she asked if we could help her finish her home and make it as she wanted it, as she was clearly struggling herself even though she knew what she liked and what she didn’t like. Jimmie Martin was introduced to the project and basically started again, taking away features that the previous designers had just installed, to become more coordinated with flow to suit her taste and lifestyle. The entrance hall is generous in size, both width and height, therefore making it feel very light and airy. Jimmie felt the space could take a dark teal against the dark wooden floors for a dramatic start to the apartment. Just off the entrance hall are now a pair of oversized hand carved doors in to the dining room. This is a decadent space with deep button pink velvet dining chairs, perfect for long intimate dinner parties. The client’s photography was the perfect backdrop for this space. The walls and brick work has been painted a dark shade of grey to give it a more moody feel. A black and white geometric pattern specially made of carpet was made to make a statement. A theatrical bottle green velvet curtain draped to one side of the window adds another pop of color and texture, contrasting against the painted grey brickwork. It bounces off the modern staircase monochromatic carpet which leads you upstairs. A large glass chandelier hangs like a large earring close to a pair of love chairs in teal velvet making the space feel more club lounge like than an entrance hall.

Sitting Room This space was originally the kitchen and dining room, but it was moved down to the ground floor to make space for a living room/TV room. The room was all white with a recently installed but dated stone brick wall put in with a fireplace as a big feature wall. We needed all new pieces for this space to make it a cozy room, a specific request from the client. The extra deep purple velvet sofa we designed and had made for the space. At five meters long it can host a lot of people and ends up a great entertaining casual but comfortable space. We decided to get rid of all the white walls and ceiling in the room and focus on the client’s bright and fun artwork and the most comfortable sofa ever. With the very dark walls and ceiling and dark spotlights each item in this room stands out and becomes a piece of art on its own whether it’s the sofa, or a special artwork or even the bookcase or the staircase. We created a very warm and comfortable entertaining space for the client whether it is to snuggle up on the sofa and watch a movie, or to sit and have drinks with friends. We chose to coordinate it with the rest of the house by using venetian blinds as window treatments in all the rooms to soften each space and allow for flexibility with the light coming in as well as for privacy. Kitchen We created a large enough kitchen for the clients use and needs but it didn’t need to include a dining area as the dining room was right next door. There are now plenty of useful worktop surfaces creating a light and airy feel. Exposing the bare brick wall and using muted color tones we created a more arty and urban feel to make sure that the kitchen design wasn’t neglected and fitted well in with the rest of the property’s style We painted one wall petrol blue which links to the hallway while concealing a secret door into the separate preparation kitchen and staff quarters.

Master Bedroom Suite This was a very important and special room for the client. We wanted to create a space where she could come home and feel cocooned from the outside world in a glamorous space fit for a princess where she could relax and just be. A dreamy, cozy and comfortable space. Pale grey painted walls, with grey straight drapes on each window for extra warmth and the clients most favorite color… pink! We used a more dusty pink and her other favorite pattern.. leopard! Master Bathroom Black painted panelled wall with black mosaic. Special made mirror bathroom cabinet with a basin. The Venetian mirror can be ordered from Jimmie Martin. White Guest Bedroom The only thing the client wanted to keep in this room was the turquoise Cavalli bedspread and pillows and the vintage movie poster she had on the wall. This is the only room we decided to keep the stark white walls and play with the contrast of the bright color injections in the floral Cavalli throw and pillows. We introduced more colors such as the soft pinks, turquoise and greens and broke it all off completely with black and white geometric rug to give a modern overall feel. The aim was to create a modern, luxurious and fun room but still relaxing and a place to escape. White Bathroom We used wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler from one of her old collections to tie in the geometric pattern from the bedroom. Accents of turquoise were also used to add to the contrast.

Downstairs Hallway We wanted to create a hallway that didn’t just become a corridor to connect the bedrooms. So we painted all the walls and ceiling a dark grey and covered the walls with parts of the client’s art collection to create a gallery-like space. With spotlights highlighting each piece of art it creates a moody and glamorous feel. There used to be a wooden staircase with a big glass banister linking the ground floor with the lower ground floor, which we had carpeted in a vibrant deep purple. The glass banister was gold leafed to give the extra sharpness and a kick to the space, along with three white neon tubes for the extra cool factor. Artworks including Peter Blake. The client loves her newly designed duplex apartment and says it has made a complete difference to how she feels there and how she uses her home. Jimmie Martin has now been asked to work on the clients’ other homes. Jimmie would call this interior design a very eclectic artsy style that breaks some of the rules of interior design.

imply gathering around a fire: it’s something that is missing in our modern world, yet it dates back to prehistory. It brings us together and removes distractions so that we are left to enjoy the company of one another. That’s powerful. Creating these moments is the intention of Breck Ironworks, a business in Colorado Ski Country that crafts one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality fire features with eco-friendly recycled steel. These tranquil gathering sites are custom-made for any outdoor space, for outdoor living year-round. Owner Monty Whatley said demand for Breck Ironworks’ gaspowered fire features has been mostly residential but has grown to include more commercial clients, especially hotels and restaurants. “Increasingly, our customers are looking for ways to relax, unwind and connect with each other. And they’re still spending a lot of time at home,” says Monty. “The glow of a fire just draws you in. People say their conversations seem deeper and stories seem funnier and it’s their entertainment for the evening, with no requirement except to be present and be in the moment.” Here’s how Breck Ironworks is helping its customers achieve exactly that. Rustic To Contemporary Designs To create an outdoor oasis that’s an extension of your home and make your patio and backyard space as comfortable as your indoor space, Breck Ironworks can custom-build designs ranging from traditional, rustic log fire pits to more contemporary features for beach and resort environments, Whatley said. Designed to withstand the harshest Rocky Mountain winters, these features can beautifully accent patios and yards, brighten and warm outdoor retreats, and creatively enhance any décor. There are four standard fire pit models: the top-of-the-line Summit, the Treeline, Trailhead and Portable.


“We’ve evolved some of our designs to mirror mountain modern design trends,” he said. “The set still looks like logs, but the lines are going to be more angular to make the custom nature and artistic aesthetic of what we build look more contemporary.” In fact, the Breck Ironworks team of craftspeople and artisans can build any custom design, even from just a sketch on a napkin, Monty says. Superior Heat, Maximum Comfort For a fire feature that’s both functional and stylish, it all starts with the burner, Whatley said. For an outdoor fire feature that’s exposed to the elements, it’s important to get a feature that has a high-enough BTU rating to handle cold, snow, rain and wind. Most Breck Ironworks clients want a BTU rating (the level of heat the fire feature puts out) of 150,000 to 300,000, Whatley said. “A 300,000 rating can generate temperatures up to 800 degrees,” he said. A Portable Option For The Van Life…And More The Portable fire pit model means it’s possible to take your fire with you to relaxing campsites, tailgating parties, river rafting trips and more. These 12-inch diameter fire pits have adjustable flame height and heat output and are even designed to hold a pot or pan for outdoor cooking. They look realistic, too, with textured logs, branches and pinecones. “You can bring it along for an overnight trip and use it for ambiance and warmth, or use it as a cooking platform,” Whatley said. “We’re seeing people also buy them for smaller spaces, like a small deck at a townhome. They’re also really popular among van campers and RVers.”


Quality Craftsmanship Backed By Lifetime Warranty Fire features made of materials such as ceramic logs or lava rocks typically start to deteriorate after about five years. They also don’t generate radiant heat like steel does. “The radiant heat produced from steel is going to be far superior to any other material we’ve found,” Whatley said. “We offer lifetime warranties on every feature that leaves our shop for residential or noncommercial use.” Breck Ironworks’ fire pits are a high-end product. “We design our features to perform flawlessly, and we back that up with a lifetime warranty,” he said. “We don’t expect one to ever fail.” Visit The Breck Ironworks Shop Most customers buy their fire features online. However, Monty said the shop, located just a couple of miles north of downtown Breckenridge, welcomes visitors interested in seeing this custom steelwork first-hand. There are always various demo models on display, and the staff is happy to offer quick tours of the shop.

Jojo Anavim, Lifesaver, 2020 Collage, foil, and acrylic on canvas, 30 x 40 in.

Jojo Anavim New York City based artist Jojo Anavim has established his body of work stemming from a background in graphic design and brand development. Previously a creative consultant for brands such as W Hotels, and Universal Music Group, Anavim crossed over fulltime to fine art in 2013. His work continually employs bold color palettes, acrylic paint, oil stick, collage scraps, found items and advertisements Anavim has been collecting since his childhood. He is known for elevating the mundane by transforming everyday items into objects of transcendence. The paintings oscillate freely between playful and subversive. Triggered by his fascination with a child-like consciousness, Anavim challenges the viewer to not only see something beautiful, but feel something as well. As a child (until age 15) Anavim enrolled in art classes taught by Disney animator Al Baruch, creator of the legendary characters Captain Hook and Mighty Mouse. Anavim credits Baruch with instilling a creative confidence that led him to embrace art as more than

a hobby early in his life. Anavim went on to study graphic art at Hunter College. Much of Anavim’s work depict the nostalgia of the brands and packaging he was surrounded by during this time, down to the LifeSavers his grandmother would always carry in her purse. Anavim’s artworks are part of permanent collections in museums and hotels around the globe, including Dream’s Downtown and Midtown Hotel, New York, NY; Coca-Cola Archives Museum, Atlanta, GA; New York Yankees City Seats Collection, New York, NY; and Surf Lodge Hotel, Montauk, NY. Anavim is also recognized for his commissions for NBA players, business moguls and top-charting musicians including Amar’e Stoudemire, Seth McFarlane, Selena Gomez, Sheldon Adelson, Paris Hilton, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis, and Daymond John. Anavim’s work has been covered by global media publications including The New York Times, American Art Collector, Business Insider and Forbes - all highlighting the success of his career.



utdoor spaces at home have taken on a more central role in our lives and - now more than ever - we feel a genuine need to fully embrace our external areas. Following the success of the household barbecue line, Officine Gullo doubles down on the range with a Grill Cooking Suite that stands out from the countless solutions currently available on the market: a sophisticated cooking range that guarantees the same unparalleled performance as a top restaurant kitchen. It’s a centerpiece around which family and friends can gather in the open air. Renowned for professional cooking ranges crafted to enable people to cook at home in the same way as chefs in their restaurants, the Italian company is now extending the same possibility to the gardens, terraces and the rooftops of its clientele. Blending a legacy of innovation and craftsmanship through the highest quality cooking systems, Officine Gullo barbecues embrace a new world of culinary possibilities, providing an actual outdoor kitchen in a single suite. Thanks to an array of sophisticated accessories, the barbecues enable home Gullo Professional Grills_(4) cooks to experiment up to 15 different cooking methods, from the usual grilling to smoking, steaming and frying. The barbecues come with accessories that comprise specialist cooking zones. A fry top, pasta cooker or wok ring can be inserted after removing the grills.

Officine Gullo Professional Grills are equipped with powerful and highly specialized burners capable of reaching high temperatures and restaurant-level performance. Reaching 800° in just 4 minutes, the infrared burners cook meat 50% quicker than the usual barbecue, therefore avoiding flames that risk burning the food. The “V”-shaped grill also collects the natural juices, fats and aromas, giving the food a unique flavor and maintaining all its qualities. The barbecues are manufactured in the highest quality 316 stainless steel, devoid of any ferrous element, hence offering unrivaled duration and total corrosion resistance, plus elegant design. The robust steel structure is combined with precision mechanics in a display of Officine Gullo’s expertise at crafting high-performance and functional cooking ranges. The barbecues stand out as much for the professional quality of the cooking system as for their exclusive design. The stainless steel of the structure can be painted in any color in the RAL range as well as custom colors on request, in addition to finishing touches through iconic brass details. Every BBQ can therefore be fully customized and made unique. The barbecues are available in three models: Grill Cooking Suite 100, Grill Cooking Suite 140 and Grill Cooking Suite Plus. The same models are available in freestanding and built-in versions. www.OfficineGullo.com

ondon’s new riverfront address is the Albert Embankment Plaza which has direct views over the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. On top of the Plaza’s central building and occupying the entire floor space of tower one is The Penthouse. The unit spans over two floors with a 3rd floor roof terrace covering the entire footprint of the floors below. Breath-taking panoramic views over the whole of London can be enjoyed from all rooms from the 22nd , 23rd and of course uninterrupted on the 24th floor roof terrace. TG-Studio was again asked by St James to interior design the penthouse to create a personalized and luxurious lifestyle for its potential owner. Our design took inspiration from the curved architecture of the building by renowned award winning global architects Foster & Partners. Two lifts give access to a private lobby and lead to a hallway with triple height volume and a panoramic window overseeing the river Thames. From here one can enter a double height space used as a private office overseen by a reception room on the upper floor. The rest of the floor 22nd floor provides private accommodation including 4 bedrooms all with en-suites and dressing rooms. The upper floor is

laid out for entertaining in an open plan way, winding itself around the core of the building. The terrace is reached by the helical staircase; it is one of the highest points in the area and occupies most of the entire floor plate of the tower. Outside seating and dining is supported by an outside kitchen and connected to the lower floor by dumb waiter. To achieve a unique interior design many items are bespoke, have been designed by us, and made specifically for this project. The main entry gives access into a triple height hall of exciting dimensions, in its heart the helix staircase with its glass balustrade. In its center hangs a bespoke sculpture of 200 porcelain leaves in bone china and 14k gold luster by Haberdashery. The leaves hang in varying lengths from the 8-meter-high ceiling, like a swarm of leaves in the wind. TG-Studio has added a curved wall into this space creating the hall and a private office. Each wall segment contains a lit display recess and a bespoke curved sofa covered in luscious dark red velvet. The curved wall opens in its center and in line with the eye of the spiral staircase it leads into the front room. Each recess showcases a lit glass sculpture made by polish glass artist Adam Jablonski.

A Bespoke writing desk and bench (three complementing fabrics) has a sand colored inset leather detail just as the leather armchair. The set of armchairs are of an Italian design upholstered in velvet and a bouclee fabric which means it is looped and extra soft for that luxurious look and feel. The bar unit is bespoke with lacquered eucalyptus veneer on the doors. The aubergine feature joinery has a ripple effect lacquer and displays a grouping of ammonites. TG-studio designed two recessed shelving units in dark stained oak with highlights backing in classic Hermes colors. TG Studio designed and dressed the mezzanine space as a welcoming, relaxing and calming room with a focus on art and sculpture. A feature and unique 3.4m long sideboard separates the hall volume from the rest of the room- overlooking the private office. The sideboards are also unique, minimal in appearance and discreetly featuring a marble detail doubling up the vertical members. Ample space for collectables and other things to display. The central sofa is positioned to take in the view and covered in a luxurious mix of two fabrics, burgundy velvet and another Hermes fabric inspired by equestrian blankets. The coffee table is made by Julian Chichester in bronze and steel, its shape mixes the square with a soft round base. In the heart of the entertaining floor is the only square shaped room, the dining room. TG designed a very special table ‘broken’ into two parts, oval in shape and of very comfortable proportion - it easily sits a party of 10. The real reason the table is in two parts was purely to get it into the apartment but the broken design allows for 2 smaller tables should the occasion dictate. The curvy break is intended only to be a few centimetres wide. The dining ware is from Vera Wang, a unique design of gold floral prints on china, the glasses and carafes are too, a rather minimal design with a unique cut line in crystal. The main feature is the bespoke joinery, the wine bar unit. It houses 2 Sub Zero wine fridges and ample storage for the wine enthusiast. The finishes are stained oak, veined marble and antique mirror.

In the TV room, the fabric scheme was inspired by the late 19th century British designer William Morris who often used greens and orange in his beautiful wallpapers. The bespoke sofa follows the curve of the floor to ceiling windows. The joinery unit, housing the 80 inch TV and surround sound system, offers ample storage and is finished in bronze and dark oak. The side tables add an eclectic touch, one offers a top made out of blue Achat stone, the other has a brass base in the shape of a bush with an acrylic top. A half oval oak table has been added to the very stylish kitchen surrounded by five blue leather upholstered dining chairs. The master bedroom design is aiming to achieve a similar soft and feminine touch as the private office. The headboard joinery grounds the room and adds storage and a luxurious feel to this amazing suite. The smooth dark stained oak framing is nicely contrasting the textured multi-colored fabric, a good setting for the super King size bed. Wall lights and bedside table lights add to the lighting moods within the room. The side table in similar colors is made out of glass and looks like a construct of jewels. The make-up table is from a Portuguese joiner and made in solid brass, gloss lacquer and internally pear wood.

At the other side of the building are the other bedroom suites 2 and 3, each featuring tall headboards and large king size beds. Bedroom 2, which has a more masculine tone, contains an aged plum leather upholstered armchair with a curvy side table. The bedside tables are inspired by antique suitcases. The armchair in Bedroom 3 swivels and is upholstered in a black, gold and white fabric from Hermes. The dressing table is made out of brass and two types of stone. It is a rare match of a white veined marble with a green marble. A delicate oval mirror fits with the more feminine décor of the room. The bedside lights are made out of mouth blown glass. The bed in the smaller Bedroom 4 is covered with a Chanel type fabric by Elitis matched by a linen fabric. The bed side tables are bespoke in oak with a leather detail. TG-Studio.co.uk

ick & I found 37 West 10th St (between 5th and 6th Avenues) in 2012 and immediately fell in love. It was in a desperately dilapidated and crumbling state, like some wonderful mansion in Havana, or a Dickensian stage set; a spiral staircase almost hanging from the second floor down to the parlour room. The 42 foot long parlour with its 12 foot ceilings was one of the first rooms we saw and pretty much single-handedly sold the property to us. The basement floor was dark & a little eerie, with soil floors, cables hanging like vines everywhere, and partially open stud walls. But its potential, with its beautiful proportions, serene light, peaceful outlooks and large sash windows was clear and I got that butterfly feeling; the adrenaline that kicks in when you know you have found the right one. We were home. The house was divided into seven apartments, but it was clear it should be brought back to its former glory and be reintegrated into one. As always with sensitive restoration we felt it important to allow the past to shine through but also encourage it to speak of its own time. So we actively chose areas to be more contemporary, such as the carriage house Kitchen (a later addition), which we connected back to the main house. Whereas the Parlour we wanted to be richly redolent of the past.

Color is my first passion, and my springboard in design. So, we juxtaposed dark moody rooms such as the Parlour against the dazzling bright white of the Kitchen, with its 20 foot ceilings and 25 foot wide skylight, which looks up into the trees. The Romans played these visual juxtapositional games as both an intellectual, emotional and a spiritual exercise. In the Caracalla Baths in Rome for example they varied the tempo and the volume room to room, so you never quite knew what one space would transition into. It not only provides spaces to match your needs but keeps you alive to the dynamic of your own home. It also serves as a reminder that you interact with your environment on a physiological level, and that it informs mood in a very real way. Anyone engaging with the house for the first time enjoys these surprises of space and light. The palette of the house (as almost always with me, however hard I try) oscillates around the blues and greens primarily. Taking F&B’s deep inky rich Hague Blue as the primary trim color, and teaming it with brass hardware, set the house on a specific track. It is rich and calm and interesting and elegant all at the same time. We opened up many walls on the ground and parlour floor to allow air and movement through the property, to bring light into naturally dark areas and to allow the outside in, the possibility of connecting to nature - if only in a modest urban way! We also excavated a whole new Cellar level to provide the play hub of the home, with cinema, Rec Room, Wine Cellar & Spa.

Finally art is always part of the picture for me - I taught History of Art for 3 years in Italy which was heavenly! It is one of my great passions and we love to support young and developing artists. Our collection does not represent any who’s who or even a particularly astute knowledge of the art world (too baffling to try!). It is simply about who and what we have connected with at times in our life, whether a color, a mood or an idea. We have works by Natalie Frank, Bradley Theodore, Patricia Traub, Rachid Bouhamidi, Pieter Hugo, Beth Carter and Philip Thomas. So we have paintings, and drawings and photographs and sculptures throughout, along with books and the special pieces that make up the story of your life. For me these final elements are what gives a house soul and a touch of magic. It has been a passion project, taking nearly 5 years in total, for numerous complex reasons, unfortunately including the serious ill-health of my brother whose care I took over. Nevertheless, we continued the project. Nick was the mainstay, ensuring that my creative vision came to light. Over the 5 years we nurtured this house, watched it develop and we are proud of the final result. For us it was essential that, though a relatively large house, at 10,000 sq.ft, it felt like a home; that there are spaces of calm and repose and cosiness. Areas in which to feel grand in a ball-gown, and nooks to curl up in in track pants! And for me as a designer, living, breathing, cluttered (though curated) comfort is always more important than minimalistic austerity. The greats such as Axel Vervoordt handle minimalism in a most beautiful and spiritual way but I was born a maximalist and I shall no doubt die one! RebekahCaudwell.com

elcome to Woodbine, distinct luxury apartments located in Downingtown, PA. With 218 units situated in three multi-family buildings, Woodbine offers amenity living with an unprecedented indoor/outdoor experience. Unique in the area, Woodbine is bordered by a six-acre park creating a sizeable green space. The buildings are positioned around an outdoor amenity of 1.25 acres- a labyrinth inspired courtyard with four manicured experiences. Inspired by nature, Woodbine is the perfect site for an interior mindful of Biophilic Design, a design solution that reconnects people to the natural environment. Research tells us when natural elements are integrated into interior spaces, and inspirational, mindful places are designed, the result gives us live and work environments that are productive, welcoming, and less stressful. The design concept carried natural elements inside with Zen sand, live green walls, waterfalls, stream like motion to the floor, light woods, and reflected light for a sense of peace and serenity. This design style, Earthy Modern, is an eco-lux organic style highlighted by simple lines and natural patterns. Warm mid-century furnishings, classic accents, and a color palette of green, gold, cream, and ebony complete the look.

The Interior The Lobby presents the first view of the open layout all the way through to the pool lounge. A terrazzo floor is bordered in brass and leads you along a pathway to strategically connect all seating zones. As you experience the space, the concept of Alone Together is evident with lounges that show a sense of separation and privacy. At the entrance, you are greeted by oversized orb shaped pendants of glass and bronze that define the Concierge on one side and the Beverage Bar on the other. These light sculptures make a statement as if they are floating in the space. Built-in curving desks of warm wood tones show off illuminated stone tops of white quartzite agate. The Fireplace Alcove features an architectural wall of vertical wood panels with ebony banding. A threesided linear glass fireplace sits prominently like an art piece. You can’t help but notice the oversized swivel wall sconces, inspired by a fishing rod, that offers a full 180-degree swing motion, for a warm glow in the lounge. Lounge chairs in alligator black and green herringbone patterns, provide flexible seating. Gold leaf feather sculptures add natural interest. The Library Alcove is in complete symmetry features a similar wood paneled wall. A built-in bookcase with a curved ledge functions as desk space. A curved sofa defines the lounge and an aluminum cast coffee table creates surface space at varying heights with unique, organic lily pad shapes.

The Point, considered the primary focal area of the space, is illuminated by the elliptical detail that radiates from the ceiling and shows off that grid-like pattern. Golden waves of layered decorative chain hang from the ceiling cutout and add drama. The Bar Banquette sits directly under the central point with a tailored curved seat and wooden base. Leather strapped lounge chairs and cubed wooden tables add a cool factor to the space. The white marble Bar was designed with seamless waterfall details and includes upholstered brass bar stools with green chevron and black alligator fabric. Behind the bar is the Experiential Wall, with a nine screen 150” monitor that will show images of nature when not in use. A green wall adds life to the experience of bringing nature indoors and when fully grown, will showcase a variety of blooming green tones. The Media Lounge, the ultimate gathering place, features a big screen TV that is surrounded by polished mosaic tile. An art display of square light boxes showcases organic, abstract agates of black glossy metal and mirror material. A sectional wraps around the space for casual comfort and a waterfall table and cozy swivel chairs add to the modern aesthetic. Custom felt dividers create a privacy screen while visually keeping the space feeling open. The pool table is carefully placed front and center to promote a sense of activity at all times. The custom pool table is a walnut tone with taupe felt. Circular pub tables with black stone tops and bar stools allow more seating with unobstructed views. Designed as study spaces when working from home or conducting a Zoom call, the Work Pods are side by side alcoves designed in the shape of a leaf profile with upholstered felt back and green leather seats. A TV monitor is included along with a quartz table and a brushed gold accent chair. A three-ring pendant provides just enough light. Vibrant colors are intentional in the indoor/ outdoor Den, offering nostalgia and whimsy. Cushion comfy sectional surrounds the curved, wall mounted fireplace, while unique furniture accents add natural elements like bird cage inspired chairs and a bright yellow tulip chair. Hanging lanterns, basket light fixtures, bird feet tables, butterfly wing photography tells the story of a garden. The Work Lounge is co-working center most popular in new amenity spaces to include private break outs. Featured in the space is a two-sided fireplace with a Sisyphus kinetic sand table, guaranteed to help relax the viewer! A modern deconstructed library includes built-in banquettes, sofa lounge seating, table seating, as well as computer stations. A wall of sculptural sconces provides ample light and custom photography features colorful agates. Embossed croc black leather, and accents of green textures with agate inspired upholstery offer a high contrast look. www.GacekDesign.com

f you have ever been down to the coast of 30A, you will understand its overwhelming appeal to many. The water is clear blue matched with perfectly white sand. Multiple beach towns cover the coast but one stands out from all the rest. Alys Beach, a high profile community that has drawn attention from all over the world due to its architecture. These custom fortified homes are all of a cohesive white stucco exterior with a European architectural spin. The cobblestone streets take your mind out of Florida and into the roads of Italy. This is what enticed Glen Oxford and Rozanne Jackson to add a home of their own. Together, the Nashville architect and designer have taken the high design in Alys to the next level. Beginning in a charming storefront in Franklin TN, Rozanne entered the home design industry through her curated selection of candles. Now over the past 24 years, Rozanne has risen to be one of Nashville’s most sought after designers with 2 retail locations in Tennessee. Her sense of timeless style with one of a kind pieces allows her client’s home to reach their full potential and last for years to come.

Rozanne’s clients range from some of Nashville’s biggest country music stars all the way to new custom builds along the Alys Beach coast. When designing this home with her husband, Rozanne knew this was not going to be like her other projects with clients. “We were able to brainstorm and dream together from the very beginning. Every step of the way, we were able to collaborate and bounce ideas off of each other in a way that you can’t always do with other architects/ builders/etc. This was our home with no outside limitations which is something that we don’t typically see in our everyday business projects.” This property sits alongside the popular Alys Beach Calina Pool, which Glen concluded that the front entry of the home had to be dramatic. A soaring tower was created and within it lies many custom details created by Glen himself. “The front entry tower was created as the main focal point of the exterior. I wanted the height of this tower to create interest for people passing by with a variety of custom details inside. The copper pendant light that hangs from the tower is a custom design I created with a local Nashville artisan. We also designed the tile’s star shape that you will actually find accented throughout our home in various materials.”

Upon entering the home, an overwhelming sense of balance fills the space. Neutral furnishings are paired with French limestone and French oak floors by Francois & Company. Each vignette falls into high design all while maintaining a subtle coastal feel. “When selecting our fabrics and furnishings, I wanted there to be a relaxed style to each space. In Nashville, Glen and I are constantly on the go at job sites. When we came to this home I wanted it to be a change of pace. A place to come, unwind and be creative!” Rozanne expresses. After spending some time in their home, you can see just how well Glen and Rozanne’s designs complement each other. With the fast growth of Nashville over the past few years, the two have found themselves at work on some new and exciting projects. “We recently completed a job that we were both on in the popular 12th South area in Nashville. This home was another great success that we are excited to share more on soon. We also have two projects within the next year where we’ll be able to work together. These will be an opportunity to really push both our creative designs to new levels!” Glen states.

Touch & Steam by Effegibi


here is nothing quite like the at-home spa experience as we continue to build our personal sanctuary spaces. Personal wellness has always been a way to reset and release ourselves from the stress of the outside world. Upgrading the typical bathroom with customized at-home spa options is the ultimate luxury experience. Age old traditions and rituals such as steam and sauna rooms are now available in sleek and stylish options. Treat yourself to the personal at-home spa wellness routine you deserve. “An elevated spa experience is having a sanctuary that separates out the steam from sauna to massage and relaxation area. The pandemic created the need for a private space which made the home spa a lot more desirable. Additionally, having a relaxing space that also aesthetically integrates functionality creates a larger usable area. For example, the BodyLove Spa designed by Rodolfo Dordoni is one of the same designers for Minotti. Nowadays, people have also prioritized wellness and are a lot more aware of the restorative sauna effects with the immune system - such as every increase in temperature augments your body’s regenerating capacity. The luxury home spa can be seen as a hammam, or a ritual to rebalance life

by prioritizing the time to meditate in this hectic reopening world.” -Lars Hypko, Co-Founder of MASS Beverly. A few favorites from MASS Beverly for the at-home spa this summer: Yoku by Effegibi

With a modular glass and wood sauna and three levels of platform benches, Yoku by Effegibi brings the steam room sauna experience to your home. There’s no need to brave traffic for the ultimate spa day. The well-balanced minimalist design is welcoming and natural with the built-in wood shelving system acting as both storage and as a privacy screen. The wood features are inspired by a particular branch of Japanese natural medicine based on the beneficial effects of contact with plants and the woodland atmosphere. Touch & Steam by Effegibi

Touch & Steam by Effegibi is an incredible way to transform your shower into a steam room for the ultimate at-home luxury. This hi-tech, stylish steam room allows users to fully customize the heat, color, and aroma of the steam for chroma and aroma therapy sessions. Best of all, the Touch & Steam has an automatic boilercleaning system that minimizes limescale build-up for easy maintenance.

Hi-Fi by Gessi The Hi-Fi by Gessi is a shower system inspired by the clean lines and sharp volumes of vintage Hi-Fi stereos. Meant to look like the knobs and controls of a mixer on a stereo, the Hi-Fi’s design gestures to the sense of well-being evoked by the love of music. The customizable controls invites people to fully customize their shower rituals and with controls over the water pressure and temperature and added colored light and steam therapy options. Gessi 316 by Gessi Bathroom fixtures may feel like an afterthought, but the fixtures that you interact with everyday, multiple times a day are an important part of your bath experience. The Gessi 316 by Gessi is an incredible luxury option that feels contemporary and personal, essential yet refined. The stainless steel fixture is available in several customizable patterns and finishes, perfect for the extra pop of detail and subtle color.

n 1969, Maya Romanoff found his calling in a tie-dyed T-shirt. Originally from Chicago, Maya attended the University of California at Berkeley at a pivotal moment in the 1960’s, studying Anthropology and Art. His post graduate travels to North Africa and Europe cemented his developing philosophy that art should be an integral part of everyday life, while exposure to the couture houses of Paris spurred his interest in textile design and fashion. Enter Woodstock and Maya’s discovery of the intriguing technique of tie-dye. His amazing fabrics swept tie-dye into the realm of couture and subsequently went beyond draping bodies to draping entire buildings creating large scale installation art. Maya began to experiment further with surfaces, creating floorcoverings, entire fabric room environments and of course, wallcoverings. As an artist, inventor and chief creative officer of Maya Romanoff, Maya created a company culture that continues to foster a sense of community and artistic expression. His study and practice of Zen Buddhism was influential in his philosophy of making “uncommon art.” Throughout the company’s evolution, Maya’s founding vision of transforming modern design by combining ancient artistic techniques with the latest production technology has held strong. Pushing

technological boundaries allowed Maya to turn his affinity for organic beauty into marketable, avantgarde surface coverings. At the age of 49, Maya was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and devoted his free time to memorizing Shakespearean sonnets, singing and spreadsheets. He never stopped pushing his company to create and to grow. In 2002, Maya’s wife and partner, Joyce, took the helm, along with their second generation, to steer the company into the future. Maya Romanoff is dedicated to satisfying their customers and the sustainability of their product. The vast majority of Maya Romanoff wallcoverings are able to safely and effectively be sanitized with either disinfecting wipes, a diluted bleach solution, or both. Fourteen new products are slated for 2021, and guests are being welcomed back to the flagship Maya Romanoff showroom in New York’s D&D Building, while a second showroom is under construction at Maya Romanoff’s Chicago headquarters and is expected to open this fall. In 2021 and beyond, Maya Romanoff remains one of the most influential and innovative wallcovering companies in the world. Their latest collections maintain the environmental and aesthetic cornerstones that Maya held so dear.

Mesa™ An extremely intensive process involving several steps of handcraft, Mesa is inspired by Japanese crushing techniques and the interaction of dye with the peaks and valleys of the paper. The new realization has a suede-like color palette with a matte, contemporary finish.

Zen Garden™

Zen Garden™ Zen Garden is nod back to Maya’s Buddhist philosophy and love of meditation. Tiny glass beads are encapsulated in a resilient compound, then harmoniously hand raked across a durable, non-woven base and colored in their Chicago Studio. The beautiful result is reminiscent of the meditative landscape of a Japanese garden, and panels can be straight hung with side matched horizontal lines, or reverse hung for a more random effect. Zen Garden is a 2021 NYCxDESIGN Awards Finalist. Ajiro Houndstooth™ The traditional houndstooth pattern has been utilized in fashion, textiles, and graphic design since the 1800s. Typically executed in black and white to introduce contrast, the Maya Romanoff Ajiro Houndstooth creates a similar effect using opposing directions of wood grain. Ajiro Houndstooth fits a wide range of design aesthetics, and like every design in the Ajiro collection, the pattern is die cut from ultra-thin Paulownia wood, and hand-inlaid onto a flexible paper backing. Cost-effective and environmentally sound, this renewable resource is beautifully stained in 15 hues and hand-finished in their Chicago Studio. Mother Of Pearl Aphrodite™ Mother of Pearl Aphrodite is a hand-crafted veneer of layered, round Capiz shells. Aphrodite tiles turn corners and have a stain-resistant coating, while highlighting the natural texture of the shell. In addition to wall installation, use Aphrodite as a furniture inset, backsplash, in a display case, or to wrap columns. Hand-finished in the Maya Romanoff Chicago studio. www.MayaRomanoff.com

E Development is pleased to announce the completion of the first of three Modern Venice Homes, a curated collection of bespoke single-family residences built by the boutique developer in Venice, CA. This unprecedented trio of newly constructed luxury residences are located side by side on Marco Place, one of Venice’s four famed walk streets, and represents the inaugural collaboration between iconic interior design studio Joan Behnke & Associates and award-winning Abramson Architects. The Historic Modern is a 2700sf newly constructed home consisting of an original 1907 Japanese Craftsman cottage combined with a metal clad modern, light-filled structure. The home features all manner of amenities for the modern healthy lifestyle. Two additional Modern Venice Homes are due to be completed in June and July 2021, each in a distinctly different style to fit within the neighborhood’s Venice vibrant and unique vernacular. Each home is a self-contained oasis that preserves the character of the community, featuring front gardens that open up directly onto the walk street. The Modern Venice Homes collection is represented by Mauricio Umansky of The Agency. “The Modern Venice Homes are the culmination of our family’s legacy,” explains Ron Harel, Principal of M.E Development, the family-run boutique development company behind Modern Venice Homes. “We deeply understand and respect

this community and its artistic culture and history, which is why we felt it was so important to partner with world class designers and architects like Joan Behnke and Abramson Architects to create something really unique that would stand the test of time. We’ve owned property in Venice since the 1990s and we believe in the long-term value and resilience of this entirely unique community.” The Historic Modern is a fresh expression of the tradition of the California cottages prevalent in the Venice community juxtaposed with a modern vernacular inspired by historicmodern architecture often seen in Europe. Abramson Architects designed the home to express and explore materiality, shape, and light. In an unprecedented move, an original 1907 cottage was lifted and transported in order to preserve it. Every detail was restored or replaced with alike through a collaborated effort with a certified historian and the Office of Historic Resources (OHR) which works to protect, enhance, and revitalize the City’s historic places through its comprehensive preservation program. This was the first time that a house was moved on a Venice walk street. The two volumes meet seamlessly to create a handsome modern dwelling that provides all the comforts and amenities of the Abbot Kinney lifestyle without disrupting the neighborhood’s history and character.

“We challenged ourselves to design something that would embody the old and new,” said architect Trevor Abramson. “What makes Venice so unique is that it’s a diverse patchwork of architectural eras and styles. This presented a rare opportunity for Abramson Architects to design three side by side residences and to truly add something distinctive to the existing urban fabric. ” The 2700 square foot 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home features a stately gourmet kitchen designed for entertaining and healthy living including a full suite of smart appliances including steam oven, architectural fixtures, and a stateof-the-art beverage station with ondemand hot, cold, and sparkling water, indoor garden, and more.

The master bathroom features a private spa with smart steam shower. Throughout the home, bold black and white tile provides pattern and visual interest, including bold striped grand staircase. Dual living rooms offer expansive living space, a rarity in a Venice cottage, and a light-filled sunroom looks out onto the front garden and the famed walk street. A ground-floor guest suite that opens onto the motor court at the rear of the home is designed to be a flexible space, easily customized into an office, guest room, or a gym with a private entrance. “Because the Venice lots are so unique, each one having their own architectural character, as well as having such a fun, central location on the walk streets, we were excited for the challenge to explore designing in this iconic neighborhood” said interior designer Joan Behnke. “We chose eclectic and refined finishes to celebrate this home’s unique history. Bold patterns and modern metalwork add intrigue. This home is warm, modern, and absolutely bespoke.” Two more Modern Venice Homes are currently under construction adjacent to the Historic Modern. The Scandifornian Modern is a nordicinspired but California-born residence due to be completed in June 2021. The Farmhouse Modern offers an alluring new perspective on an enduring classic and is due to be completed in July 2021. All three homes are designed by Joan Behnke & Associates and Abramson Architects. This marks a series of firsts for Venice, which sits squarely in the middle of the highly competitive Silicon Beach residential real estate market. “The Modern Venice Homes represent a series of firsts for us and for Venice,” adds Harel. “This is the first time that three new houses have been built side by side, and it has been years since a new house has been sold on a walk street in Venice. It’s also the first time Joan Behnke & Associates and Abramson Architects have designed three consecutive residences together. We’re excited to create such a thoughtfully designed and conscientiously built series of homes that we know buyers will truly appreciate.” The Historic Modern is listed at $6,495,000 and currently on view by appointment only through The Agency.

p until now Nicky Dobree has been synonymous with luxury Alpine chalet design and most recently very high end residential design. Most recently she has turned her attention to Plaza 18, her first hotel design in collaboration with Vejer’s Hotel La Casa del Califa. Set in the former 19th C merchant’s house Nicky Dobree has taken inspiration from this elegant building and brought new life back into this Grand Dame by respecting its history, but also lifting its character to provide an enriched experience for the modern traveller. Working with local trades and craftsmen, this building, which dates back to 1896 and stands on the foundations of an ancient 13th C Arab house, has been entirely restored using authentic organic building materials where ever possible. Nicky was determined to restore and re-use as many of its existing features as possible. The original black and white floor tiles were therefore lifted and re-laid on newly levelled floors. The Montera (large glazed roof lantern over the entrance patio) was carefully dismantled and repaired to its former glory, which now floods the entrance foyer with light. The stone staircase and balustrade were also completely restored, as was all the metal work around the entrance gate. Many of the original shutters and windows were also restored along with the building’s front door. Meticulous care and attention to detail has been maintained throughout the refurbishment of this important historic property. Nicky felt that her role was to curate this elegant old building and to bring it a new lease of life, enhancing its beauty with style and a subtle creative twist.

Plaza 18 has been a true labour of love with the inevitable obstacles of planning, working abroad and within a listed building. The trials and tribulations of restoring an old building and the rules and regulations that needed to be adhered to, to convert it into a commercial venture, has meant that the project took two years to get through planning and a further two years to compete. Whilst the details adhere to the classical principles of the house, there is comfort and elegance through every door. Every room has a story to tell and contains pieces that have been lovingly curated by Dobree from around the world. This is evident from the moment you enter with the oversized black and white mirror by a South African artist which makes a dramatic statement in the entrance. Dobree designed the bespoke console to sit beneath the mirror that complements the monochromatic entrance scheme. In the patio whilst your eye is drawn up to the Montera and the wonderful central staircase you cannot miss the large scale butterfly painting sourced from an antiques fair. Stepping into the sitting room there is nothing more welcoming than a well-stocked drinks trolley, an honesty bar which can be enjoyed by guests at Plaza 18. Standing proud above it is a painting of Admiral Lord de Saumarez who fought at the Battle of Trafalgar (a short drive from the hotel) alongside Admiral Lord Nelson. Leading off the sitting room is the main terrace with views across the old town, sierras and coast line. On a clear day the North African coast is visible. It is here that guests can relax in the Andalucian sunshine with a drink.

Tall black bespoke doors with circular brass handles designed by Dobree create drama and continuity throughout. Behind each of these doors are interiors that are intensely layered and so inviting that everywhere you turn is a visual delight. Here you will discover more of Dobree’s curated pieces such as a Japanese Boro Kimono or collage painting by Peter Clarke. All the bathrooms have been beautifully designed using Spanish floor tiles and bespoke marble vanities with Lefroy Brooks deco style fittings echoing the elegance of the house. The attention to detail is reflected in every aspect of one’s experience here. Dobree worked with a renowned perfumer to provide bespoke toiletries that have been specially formulated to create a signature scent for Plaza 18 and that are soft and subtle on the skin. The scent is inspired by the aromas that perfume Vejer, orange, bergamot, lavender and geranium. The base of olive oil and almond that nourishes the skin is local too.

Plaza 18 has a true home from home feeling that brings Dobree’s collective chic and timeless elegant style to Vejer. It is a place to feel at home, a place to disconnect and re-discover. www.califavejer.com/plaza-18 www.NickyDobree.com

he luxury real estate market saw a meteoric transformation since the onset of the pandemic, with high net-worth home seekers realigning their priorities and lifestyles, fleeing dense cities for warmer climates and open spaces. Home prices have reached record highs in many cities due to increased demand, and diminished inventory continues to build fierce competition for single family homes. In Florida, focus is on properties with increased square-footage, access to the outdoors, and “secluded” amenities. “Wealthy buyers are looking for real estate makes them feel like they are in a cocoon of their own,” said Liz Hogan, Compass’ #1 agent in Florida four years running. “A home that caters to this lifestyle and offers a sense of security and resort-style living are most highly sought after.” Turnkey Homes Florida experienced a rapid influx of buyers fleeing from areas including the Northeast and West Coast, settling in less dense areas from Miami to Naples. Looking to relocate and settle in quickly, they sought out turnkey trophy properties. “There is a shortage of homes, especially for luxury and new construction, and buyers are willing to pay a premium,” said Angel Nicolas, founder of The Nicolas Group, who recently sold a new build in Coconut Grove for $1 million over the asking price. “We are positioning listings to create bidding wars and a seeing a sharp increase in off-market deals.” For many buyers, the focus is on fully furnished residences to avoid the hassle of needing to hire a designer and wait for furniture to arrive. “Having a home that is decorated and ready to move into trumps just about everything else these days,” added Dennis Bowers, who leads The Bower Group in Naples. “Buyers are looking for a completely move-in ready home with very minimal effort required.”

Waterfront Waterfront has always been the most desirable location to purchase property, and in South Florida buyers get their pick from oceanfront or bayfront. “The Miami lifestyle is all about being on the water, either from your backyard or by boat. Our top assets are the year-round warm weather and stunning waterfront properties,” said Dina Goldentayer, Douglas Elliman’s #1 agent in Miami who recently sold her 50th house on the coveted waterfront Venetian Islands. She says the influx of buyers from the Northeast and California are all looking for an iconic Miami home and the perks that come with it – sunset views, dockage, and ample yard for entertaining. “There is a limited amount of waterfront inventory and an overwhelming demand for these coveted properties,” says Goldentayer whose primary area of selling is in Miami Beach. “In central Miami Beach there are 700 waterfront homes and likely just as many buyers in the marketplace at any given moment.” Outdoor Space + Resort-Style Amenities With more time being spent at home, space to play is paramount. From sprawling backyards and terraces with expansive pools and summer kitchens, demand for ‘self-contained’ amenities that can be enjoyed in seclusion have increased exponentially. “Clients are looking for properties that can be customized to their hobbies and needs,” said Jeff Miller, a top ONE Sotheby’s International Realty agent with more than $1 Billion worth of luxury property sales. “They want these amenities to be available privately, right in the comfort from their own home.” In-home movie theatres, home gyms, yoga and meditation studios, and spas are on the checklist. Miller says he recently worked with a buyer whose requirements included enough land to build a paddle tennis court for himself and a treehouse for the kids, while another client built a miniature soccer field. “We have re-established the term ‘live-work-play’ because so many people have designed homes where they can do all three.”

Home Offices + Kids Rooms With remote work and virtual school as the new normal, increased square footage with dedicated spaces to work and learn became a necessary luxury to optimize a work/life balance. “Clients want their own space where there are no distractions,” said Ida Schwartz senior director of luxury sales with The Schwartz Team in Miami Beach. She says home buyers are gravitating towards offices built out in a detached garage that feel more independent from the rest of the home, while many condo owners are purchasing or renting studio or one-bedroom units in their buildings to have a completely separate office setup. “Promotion or not, you can get your own corner office with amazing views,” says Schwartz. Homes with space for kidfriendly features including areas for learning pods and virtual school, and playrooms with kid-approved amenities are also a priority.
