WHAT’S NEW IN ART, ARCHITECTURE, AND DESIGN FROM ART AND JEWELRY, TO WELLNESS SPACES, TO BOLD COLORS, HERE’S WHAT’S IN VOGUE 6
RESIDE SUMMER 2019

eautiful, bold, and beneficial are the catchwords this season in the worlds of art, architecture, and design. B We’re decorating our bodies, building healthy environ-
ments, and brightening our rooms with rainbows of color. Here’s what’s happening.
Opposite page: Vera Iconica Wellness Kitchen™; bottom right: Solange Ltd. This page: Fritz von der Schulenburg
Jewelry designers are creating abstract adornments that double as wearable works of art. One such maker is Solange Azagury-Partridge of Britain. Her pieces, which she calls “sculpture for the body,” are dazzling and dynamic and sell for thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of pounds. Scribbles, one of the newer collections of gemstone rings and mix-and-match-make-your-own earrings under her Solange brand, is inspired by her doodles. “There’s always something behind each piece; it’s not just what you see,” she says. “The random shapes of scribbles are fascinating and reflect the stones’ internal inclusions. Your eye is attracted by the shapes and color combinations.” Azagury-Partridge developed a love for jewelry while working at a gallery specializing in 20th-century decorative arts and vintage jewelry. In 1987, she designed her first piece, an uncut diamond in a gold bombe setting, as her own engagement ring. Tilda Swinton and Lady Gaga are among the celebrities who wear her art, which is in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Her Hotlips collection of rings shaped like bee-stung lips is reminiscent of Salvador Dali’s sexy Mae West Lips Sofa, and her Supernature collection was inspired by the five ancient elements—fire, air, water, earth, and ether. “I make things you don’t know you want until you see them,” she says. Architecture
A healthy house means healthy inhabitants. That’s the credo of the emerging wellness-architecture movement. “As an architect, I have the power to shift your cognitive function and your mood through the use of materials, colors, textures, and layouts,” says architect Veronica Schreibeis Smith, who helped coin the term in 2015 when she founded
the Wellness Architecture Initiative. “I and other architects are using these skills to enhance human and planetary well-being by reimagining every room of the house.” Wellness spaces in homes around the world incorporate eco-friendly, natural materials and innovative, multifunctional designs that encourage a healthy lifestyle. For instance, a kitchen prototype created by Schreibeis Smith’s firm, Vera Iconica Architecture in Jackson, Wyo., is designed to make cooking a nutritious and fun family ritual. People pick produce from a hydroponic garden that grows on a wall and store foods in transparent, programmable climatecontrolled cabinets made of natural oak. For a private client with a young child, her firm designed a flexible tea room/game room/meditation room/yoga room/ playroom that encourages family time and healthy activities. The real beauty of the movement, Schreibeis Smith says, is that it shows “you can change everything when you change the environment.” Design
Interior designers are no longer taking a neutral stance on color. They are replacing beiges and grays with bold hues in exciting combinations. “The trend comes after years of preferred neutral colors introduced by the International School of Architecture, then repeated ad nauseam, particularly in the corporate business world and hotels,” says London-based interior designer John Stefanidis, whose name is synonymous with the original use of vibrant color. He says interiors around the world finally are finding their true colors. “There are fantastic explosions of color in India and China and everywhere in Africa,” he says. The colors are cropping up not only in furnishings but also on walls. “I use splashed paint, layer upon layer, to give depth,” he says. “Or stenciling. I’m very proud of the lacepainted walls I created for a bedroom in a Florida house.” Stefanidis, who has a cosmopolitan clientele, says his color sense is influenced, in part, by his travels: “Exposure to design, color, and architecture as well as the internet and apps like Instagram—it’s all very inspiring.” 7

Modern Beach Homes It’s all about floor -to - ceiling windows, sliding doors, and skylights
t the beach, people want as few barriers to the water as possible. So when it comes to modern beach houses, views, light, and outdoor space are at the top of every buyer’s wish list. Oversize windows, glass walls, and open layouts are integral design elements, as are covered porches, decks for entertaining, and seamless indoor-outdoor spaces. Jan Eric Horn, executive director of the architectural division of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty in Del Mar, California, says there are two defining characteristics of today’s contemporary beach houses: “One is that they have walls of glass, and the reason they have walls of glass, obviously, is to maximize views,” he says. “And the second thing is the trend for the last 20 years—and I don’t think it’s going to stop—toward great rooms.” Those open layouts, where the kitchen, dining, and living areas are all combined into one large space, have caught on throughout architectural styles, Horn adds, but “it’s especially prevalent at the beach.” People can’t help but come together in the great room, but they are also an efficient use of space that helps keep things bright inside.
Maximizing views is of utmost importance in a beach home.

Mediterranean lifestyle is very much focused on the outdoor spaces,” she says. “Our clients love to unite the indoor with the outdoor spaces, with large terraces to have lunch or dinner. Also, the highly Instagrammable infinity pools are incredibly popular.” In addition to patios, decks, and covered porches for parties and barbecues, today’s beach builds have rooms that convert from indoor to outdoor with the touch of a button. One Hamptons home that Bodenchak helped design has a corner room with retractable glass doors that open to the lawn and pool area. He is currently marketing this nine-bedroom, 10-anda-half-bathroom mansion in Water Mill, New York, which is listed for just under US$11 million. Creating a seamless indoor-outdoor experience is essential for homes in South Africa, as well. “Usually, homes have at least two outdoor spaces so that the outdoor spaces can be enjoyed regardless of the prevailing wind,” Neufeld says.
Seamless indooroutdoor spaces are popular with buyers in today’s market.
Open layouts and huge windows are in vogue on beaches in South Africa, says Steve Neufeld, manager principal of Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty, based in Plettenberg Bay on the country’s southern coast. “Large windows are definitely a must,” he says. “The view is critical to value, as is direct beach access.” And people don’t just want views from the great room, they want views from every room. That includes eating areas, according to Frank Bodenchak, a Sotheby’s International Realty agent based in Bridgehampton, New York. “We’re seeing dining areas that are a little off the kitchen, with three walls of glass surrounding them,” says Bodenchak, who also designs Hamptons homes through his company Bodenchak Design & Build. Formal dining rooms are less important, and some new builds don’t have them at all. These trends are on display at beach homes in Spain, as well, according to Mirjam de Boer of VIVA Sotheby’s International Realty in Mallorca. “The

Some beach houses also now have a “wet room” of either concrete or cement, Horn says. That’s where sandy kids can rinse off and leave the beach behind them before coming into the house. “Then you don’t have to worry about the mess,” he says. In addition, sustainably built homes are “slowly getting traction in South Africa,” Neufeld adds. “Many beachfront homes are incorporating solar energy systems, heat pumps, and the like,” he says. “Green credentials do add value.” The firm is currently representing the sale of land at Solar Beach, a coming eco-estate with 14 sites. The project’s architectural guidelines “require strict adherence” to green
building standards and to protecting the shoreline. There are even environmental benefits to the trendy open layouts and large windows, according to Horn. Innovations like those can help make a home more efficient and environmentally friendly, he says. And the floorto-ceiling windows, sliding doors, and skylights that so many beach homes boast promote air flow and let in natural sunlight. “If you do the three of those correctly, you can have a tremendously well-circulated, naturally lit solar home,” Horn says. Technologies like solar panels and collectors (which will be mandatory on new homes in California starting
in 2020), tankless water heaters, and green insulation are other options for conscientious homeowners, Horn adds. And designs are incorporating more natural materials, such as bamboo and cork flooring. Sustainability has become a bigger issue for clients, who want to lessen their footprint but don’t want to compromise on aesthetics, Horn explains. For him, the biggest trend is “toward what we call architecture as art.” These homes may have a unique design, or could just be a rectangle, but they have been exquisitely executed. “It’s not just a house, but a house that when you look at the facade, from the front or the back, it looks like a work of art,” he says. 11

Hiking in Style Commune with nature without sacrificing convenience
The Alila Experienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cave Adventure Via Ferrata in Oman is for the adventurous.
n a digitized world, more global travelers want to take a break from technology while enjoying close contact with nature. Few activities guarantee Zen moments like hiking; fortunately, there’s an ever-growing variety of inviting destinations where expert-led hikes are among the most popular activities. Better yet, an assortment of upscale resorts and tour providers are offering opportunities to hike in style, with gourmet treats, relaxing spa services, and comfy accommodations taking the sting out of a lung-busting, yet rewarding, hike. When you’re looking to commune with nature, yet don’t want to sacrifice any conveniences, seek out these opportunities to enjoy some of the best hikes in the world. NEW YORK STATE
Considered a hiker’s paradise, the Adirondacks cover more than six million acres and have 2,000-plus miles of marked hiking trails, making this America’s largest trail system. Whiteface Lodge, an all-suite luxury resort tucked into the woodlands above Lake Placid, evokes the Gilded Age style of the Adirondacks’ historic Great Camps. The property, which features striking design elements of stone and timber, provides easy access to signature hiking destinations, such as the High Falls Gorge and Whiteface Landing. Families are wellserved, thanks to complimentary resort amenities such as a 56-seat movie theater, a game room with a two-lane bowling alley, a fishing pond, and a kids camp. Mohonk Mountain House, a historic resort in the famed Hudson Valley (some 90 miles north of New York City), is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2019, making it one of the oldest family-run hotels in the U.S. Situated in the center of the Shawangunk Mountains, the property sits next to the glacier-formed Lake Mohonk, providing guests of all ages with ample opportunities to engage with nature. Options range from a relaxing mindfulness hike, to an intense survivalist hike during which participants learn valuable tools and techniques, to a “foods of the forest” hike that teaches guests how to sustain themselves with nature’s bounty.
Alila Jabal Akhdar
Health-minded Caribbean travelers flock to BodyHoliday, an all-inclusive wellness resort that offers a pair of exhilarating hiking experiences as part of its luxury services. The Mount Gimie hike encompasses a 3,117-foot climb to the summit of the tallest mountain in the West Indies, with breathtaking views of lush tropical rainforests. Those looking for a lessdemanding experience opt for the En Baus Saut hike, in which guests venture into the interior of the island and through the Edmund Rainforest, where they hike into a waterfall to enjoy a refreshing swim. 13
Right: Hiking through Uganda with Intrepid Travel.
Japan’s first glamping retreat, Hoshinoya Fuji, offers individual cabins carved into the mountainside, with ample opportunities to detach from the modern world, as epitomized by its “digital detox” program. When not spending time on the Cloud Terrace—a series of connected platforms positioned along the red-pine slope that extends from the cabins—guests can enjoy mountain-trekking tours in which expert guides lead the way towards panoramic views of imposing Mount Fuji and scenic Lake Kawaguchi. OMAN
Adventure travelers and nature lovers looking to visit Oman in style flock to Alila Jabal Akhdar, a luxury resort nestled 6,000 feet above sea level in the Al Hajar mountains. Guests are encouraged to explore nearby hiking trails, which extend past farmlands filled with walnut trees and pomegranate bushes. Thrill seekers opt for challenging via ferrata treks that lead to jaw-dropping scenery, such as Al Khutaymi, the site of a hidden village within a cave. INDIA
For such a densely populated country, India offers a surprising number of world-class hiking destinations, perhaps none more notable than the Himalayan city of Shimla. Well-heeled travelers gravitate to Wildflower Hall, an Oberoi Resort, the stately former residence of a British lord, where guests lose 14
themselves in nature via guided walks through the surrounding landscaped hill slopes. Nearby, The Oberoi Cecil presents guided nature walks in the village of Annadale. After descending through rhododendron and cedar forests, hikers pause for a relaxing picnic lunch beside a bubbling stream. MEXICO
Spread across more than 4,000 acres in Tecate, Rancho La Puerta—one of Mexico’s most acclaimed wellness resorts—offers hiking-focused activities for all fitness levels, and employs a concierge with whom guests can take hiking lessons. In addition to challenging hikes, serious trail runners and marathoners can take to the foothills of Mount Kuchumaa to train across numerous trails at different altitudes. UTAH
Located in Park City, the Montage Deer Valley resort presents a variety of easily accessible hikes. And visitors looking to take their brushes with nature to another level can opt for a Montage Expedition. These intimate, personalized adventures see resort guests take a private plane to Yellowstone or Canyonlands National Park, where expert tour guides lead hikes past myriad highlights. Nature lovers flock to the city of St. George for the outdoors-focused Red Mountain Resort. Positioned in the heart of southwestern Utah’s Red Rock

Country, the resort sits in close proximity to neighboring Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. It offers a range of customizable hiking experiences, as well as spa treatments and wellness workshops designed to help recovery after a long day on the trails. CALIFORNIA
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the adults-only Ventana Big Sur resort sits on 160 acres of rolling meadows and towering redwoods along California’s scenic Central Coast. Guests revel in daily guided walks, plus dedicated adventure hikes and Big Sur excursions. Devotees of The Ranch Malibu— one of America’s most lauded and influential wellness retreats—swear by its daily regimen that pairs nutritionfocused, plant-based meals with rigorous fitness classes and guided mountain hikes. The knowledgeable staff and revitalizing atmosphere attract visitors from around the world, and for those who have already had the signature Malibu experience, The Ranch offers similar retreats in the Dolomites of Northern Italy, where guests hike along alpine trails with professional guides.
Accessible only by boat, seaplane, or helicopter, the Sonora Resort attracts nature lovers to its home in B.C.’s Discovery Islands. Guests hike alongside the property’s ecological guide and pass through old-growth cedars— some more than 800 years old—while learning about ancient remedies and local history. Once back at the resort, vacationers keep an eye out for orcas, dolphins, sea lions, and more. Adrenaline junkies looking to take their hikes to another level are attracted to the famous granite spires of the Bugaboos, found in the Purcell Mountains of southeastern B.C. CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures delivers hikers by helicopter; for takeoffs and landings, participants huddle as a group and hold on tight, due to hurricane-force winds created by the rotor. Hardcore types tackle the Skyladder Via Ferrata, a halfday vertical journey up Mount Trundle (no climbing experience necessary), while others can simply admire shale ridges and alpine meadows. CHILE
Tierra Hotels—a trio of boutique, all-inclusive lodges, each inspired by
nature—provides guided hiking excursions through some of Chile’s most scenic locales. Located on the edge of the famed Torres del Paine National Park, Tierra Patagonia offers guided hikes both inside and outside the park. From its base in the northern Atacama desert, Tierra Atacama lets guests hike through the striking Valle de la Luna. Situated off the coast of northern Patagonia, Tierra Chiloe—the newest of the three—delivers a quiet environment for peaceful hikes, not to mention penguin and dolphin spotting. SCOTLAND AND IRELAND
Wilderness Scotland and its sister company, Wilderness Ireland, offer guided walking trips with highlights such as Scotland’s North Highlands Coast, West Highlands Way, and Speyside Way, and Ireland’s Dingle Way and the mountains of Connemara and Mayo. Participants choose between hill walks, coastal walks, and valley hikes, and a grading system ensures the right difficulty level. Wilderness Scotland also offers self-guided walks in which guests go at their own pace with the freedom to explore along the way, while being assisted via baggage transfers and 24-hour support. 15

In - store restaurants have become fine- dining destinations in their own right
Food First, Shopping Second
n-store restaurants arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t new: For decades, spots like the Zodiac at Neiman Marcus in Dallas have let shoppers unwind over a glass of wine and a salad. But now, more retail locations are including upscale eateries, hiring celebrity chefs, and developing elaborate menus that emphasize freshness and seasonality. These restaurants are becoming dining destinations in their own right, drawing customers who come for the food first and the shopping second. Some began as additions to existing shops, while others were developed in tandem with boutiques, offering customers a holistic experience. Such schemes have been so successful that French chef Dominique Crenn, whose San Francisco restaurant Atelier Crenn was awarded three Michelin stars, will open a combination restaurant, boutique, and patisserie in the northern California city this fall. And hungry shoppers already have a range of options around the world when they want fine dining alongside their retail therapy. Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Avenue at Saks, New York City
The seasonal prix fixe menu at Graanmarkt in Antwerp, Belgium, changes on a daily basis.
Opened in February 2019, this FrenchThai restaurant is on the ninth floor of Saks Fifth Avenueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flagship New York location. Its debut was covered by Vogue and drew celebrities, such as actress Jessica Chastain, who came to check out the Philippe Starck-designed interiors and the extensive menu. Inside, the color palette skews beige and brown, punctuated by stained-glass windows, while just downstairs is Le Chalet, a bar and lounge with a skilodge feel. The menu spans fine-dining classics, including caviar, foie gras, and beef tartare, as well as Thai-inflected dishes like chili sea bass. The cocktail menu features straightforward drinks like Negronis and old-fashioneds, as well as more creative concoctions from mixologist Nico de Soto and a dessert menu overseen by Pierre Herme. The restaurant is reservations-only, and has a popular counterpart in Paris.
Beige Alain Ducasse, on the 10th floor of Chanel in Ginza, Tokyo, offers views over the city, and French food with Japanese ingredients.
Owner Carla Sozzani, a former fashion editor and publisher, opened Corso Como in 1991 as a hybrid of a gallery, boutique, and dining destination. Its original Milan location features a ground-floor cafe, serving elegant small plates, pastas, risottos, salads, and more, plus extensive cocktail and wine lists. Also on the ground floor is a clothing shop, while upstairs you’ll find a book and design store, an art gallery, and a three-room hotel with full-service amenities. The building itself is eye-catching, fostering a seamless indoor-outdoor feel with floor-toceiling windows, a courtyard, garden, and terraces from which to take it all in. Sozzani has also opened branches in Seoul, Shanghai, and at the South Street Seaport in New York. Ralph’s Coffee Bar at Polo Ralph Lauren, London
In New York, Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar made a successful debut in 2015, 18
generating monthslong waiting lists. And in 2017, the designer made his London dining foray, opening this cafe beside Polo Ralph Lauren’s flagship store. Outfitted with plenty of dark wood, leather booths, and gleaming finishes, Ralph’s Coffee Bar serves caffeinated drinks, cocktails, and wine, along with country-club style dishes such as club sandwiches and lobster rolls. There’s also a brunch menu and, fittingly for the U.K., a prix fixe afternoon tea, complete with sandwiches and dessert. The environment is cozier than some other retail restaurant locations, with limited seating at tables and the bar. Next door, shop for men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel, as well as home goods and cosmetics. Beige Alain Ducasse at Chanel Ginza, Tokyo

On the basement level is a restaurant run by chef Seppe Nobels, who oversees a seasonal prix fixe menu that changes daily, in a bright, friendly space with marble-topped tables and modern art. For something more casual, Nobels also runs a food truck out front on Saturdays, serving fast but healthy dishes with local ingredients. Recently, after renovations from Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen, Cornelissens and Van Geloven have converted the building’s top-floor apartment into a full-floor hotel that can accommodate up to six guests at a time.

The high-end dining destination, on the building’s 10th floor, serves French food prepared with Japanese ingredients under the guidance of executive chef Kei Kojima. The decor, too, has an East-meets-West flair, with warm hues and minimalist style. Prix fixe and à la carte options are available, highlighting locally sourced ingredients. On lunch and dinner menus, expect to see dishes ranging from foie gras with roasted apples to fish served with daikon and yuzu. On the lower floors are three stories of Chanel boutiques, as well as a Chanel event space that hosts concerts and fashion exhibitions.

Naeem Khan’s Sky- High Inspiration The designer of luxury women’s wear talks about the places that inspire him, from his native Mumbai to Miami
You’ve emphasized separates recently. Why are millennials drawn to those?
In the past, you had the grand dames shopping for gowns. Now you have money in younger people’s hands— women in their 30s and 40s in tech or finance, and they think differently. There are only so many occasions for gowns. Separates work better. And millennials want to put things together their way and express themselves creatively. So you can take one of my tops, a Zara skirt, and maybe a Miu Miu jacket, and make it your own. What did you learn about fashion from your father and grandfather?
They designed fabrics made with pure gold, sterling silver, real pearls, and diamonds, all done by hand. I had a dream to take that tradition and make it modern. Now my two boys work with me. That makes four generations of a family tradition. That must make you proud.
It does. It also creates a homey atmosphere at the office. The people who work for me are like family, and the office is designed like a home. Well, if it’s anything like your Miami home, then your workers are lucky. You bought that home on impulse?

ot everyone has the audacity to buy a multimillion-dollar, sky-high triplex in Miami on a whim, but Naeem Khan isn’t N your typical house buyer—or fashion designer, for that matter. A look at his luxury women’s wear label—known for its opulent embroidery and worn by the likes of Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Michelle Obama—reveals that he’s been playing a steady long game in a bid to court younger consumers. His recent collections, including the coming fall line, emphasize glamorous separates, popular with millennials. Born and raised in Mumbai, Khan, 61, learned about textiles from his father and grandfather, who designed elegant saris for India’s upper crust. After moving to New York, he apprenticed with designer Halston. He launched his eponymous brand in 2003, a bridal line 10 years later, and this year hopes to open a new headquarters not far from that glorious Miami aerie.
I did—without ever seeing it in person. I’d looked at many homes but was wasting time not making a decision. I was in Dallas at a [trunk show], a thousand people, standing ovation, and I stepped outside feeling so good. [Later, surfing online], I saw this apartment: three stories, like a set of glass boxes on top of a high-rise, with a pool in it. I saw it on a Saturday and bought it on a Tuesday. What did your wife say?
She thought I was insane. But she knew if I really wanted to do this, there was a reason. So she let me. We designed the interiors together. That was 12 years ago and we’ve been very happy there. Now I’m building an art and education complex [in Miami]—a high school of fashion. I’m moving my headquarters down there, so the kids can get hands-on experience. We’re also talking about growing hemp and other sustainable fabrics. All this evolved from a basic question—how do we give back? 21

Modern Takes on Marble How to use the ultraluxe material all over your home
n the world of interiors, no material exudes elegance quite like marble. Prized for its varied colorways and unique Iveining, marble elevates an interior to luxury status. It’s no
Making It Feel Current
While marble has a tendency to evoke an old-world aesthetic, designers are using it in ways that feel current. For instance, highly veined, polished black-and-white book-matched marble—mirror-image marble placed side-by-side—would make a stunning dining tabletop, Cloughen says. “Pair it with a contemporary metal base and the result is dynamic and elegant and timeless—whether it’s a cocktail table or a dining table,” she says. Similarly, a light, subtly veined marble in a honed finish creates a soft luster and looks sophisticated with minimal design, she says. Marble is a material seen more often in homes today due to advances in quarrying and fabricating stone, which have helped lower the cost, says Phillip Thomas, founder and principal 22
of Phillip Thomas interior design firm in New York. “Just be mindful, marble needs to be counterbalanced with other materials to support acoustics, since it doesn’t absorb noise,” Thomas says. Marble can also look of-the-moment through its detailing. “There is something very modern about expressing marble in a monumental fashion with large, gutsy proportions,” Thomas says. Rendell Fernandez, design director for Pembrooke & Ives, a firm with offices in New York and Beverly Hills, utilizes marble as a feature in bathrooms and powder rooms, as well as foyer floors— for a classic application—and staircases for the ultimate in luxury. “You can also take a classic piece of marble and modernize it by mitering a chunky edge on it,” says Michelle Gerson

wonder the natural stone has graced the palaces and temples of kings and emperors for centuries. “Marble has been used in the most noble homes for flooring and decoration since the beginning of time, and using it in any interior perpetuates this legacy,” says Rome-based architect and designer Achille Salvagni. “Because there are so many types of marble, it is an easy way to play with color and pattern.” Formed from limestone when it’s exposed to high pressures and temperatures, marble is found in many colors and veining due to mineral impurities such as iron, clay, and sand, which intrude as the original rock is recrystallizing. Marble adds “sophistication to an interior, whether it is used for a mantle, a piece of furniture, or as an architectural element such as flooring,” says Lisa Melone Cloughen of Melone Cloughen Interiors in Greenwich, Connecticut.

texture by varying veining and colors. If you’re not afraid to take a risk, it’s great to mix marbles.” One of the most popular places to use marble is in the bathroom. “Since antiquity, marble has been the choice of bath houses, and that trend continues today,” Cloughen says. “An entire bath done in primarily whole slabs or with detailed wainscoting and paneling can be so elegant,” she says.

The look of marble-clad walls can rival an interior filled with fine art, creating drama and glamour, Cloughen says. “The fact that they are created in nature adds an element of uniqueness to each and every design,” she says. Because there are so many types and colors of marble, it’s easy to play with color and pattern in the veins. “The key is to ensure the craftsman will cut the marble so that the patterns will be similar, which creates the ‘wow’ effect if it is made properly,” Salvagni says. “I love the layer of texture and depth marble can add to a space,” Gerson says. “You can control the levels of depth and
As a natural stone, marble tends to be soft and porous, so it can stain and scratch. When it comes to high-traffic zones, some types of marble may be marginally more durable than others. Gerson recommends a heavily veined or patterned marble for common areas. “Arabescato marble is great for a kitchen countertop, as it tends to be busy and hides stains and etching better,” she says. She suggests onyx marble for tabletops, since it’s a harder stone that “allows light to flow through, bringing another dimension to a surface.” 23

Restoration Hardwareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Evolution to Design Studio
Expect more retail “experiences” from the 40 -year - old brand estoration Hardware is in the business of selling furniture, but these days, the retail experience is more than just R buying products. It’s becoming an entire lifestyle.
Restoration Hardware (4)
In 2016, the brand launched RH Interior Design as well as the interactive RH Design Ateliers across all their retail stores. So not only can consumers come to Restoration Hardware to fill their homes, but they can also rely on internal interior designers—and even bring their own architects and designers to RH workspaces—to give their spaces a point of view and sense of style. “The evolution of our interior-design services positions RH as a leading interior-design firm and demonstrates how our brand can deliver value that transcends just creating and selling product, as we move toward conceptualizing and selling spaces,” RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman said in a statement. The company, which opened in 1979, is known for luxe weathered antique-style furnishings, lighting, and accessories. But its business model continues to evolve. Last fall, the brand opened its first retail “experience,” a 90,000-squarefoot, six-level gallery dubbed RH New York, in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. The space houses a restaurant, bar, an art installation, all the RH lines—modern, outdoor, baby and child, teen, etc.—as well as an entire floor dedicated to design with RH interior-design offices, client presentation rooms, and state-of-the-art technology that basically makes it a fullscale design firm. “We are designing a seamlessly integrated ecosystem of businesses that amplify and render our brand, and each other, more valuable,” Friedman says. But RH’s expansion isn’t done yet. The company plans to increase the number of new galleries with integrated restaurants, wine vaults, and barista bars from an average of three to five new galleries per year to five to seven per year, with 2019 openings slated in Edina, Minn.; Charlotte, N.C.; Corte Madera, Calif.; San Francisco; and Columbus, Ohio. “We are creating a customer experience that can’t be replicated online…We have total control of our brand from concept to customer. What we are building is extremely rare in today’s retail landscape,” Friedman says.

Rumer Willis’ Favorite Things The actress on her beloved furniture, art, and more
arlier this year, actress Rumer Willis surprised fans by being the woman—and voice—behind an elaborate lion costume E on Fox TV’s singing-competition show The Masked Singer.
Willis has been bitten by the singing bug, and now the former Dancing with the Stars winner is heading to the music studio to record an album later this year. The music, she says, will be inspired by Amy Winehouse, and aims to “take jazz and make it more digestible for a new generation.” Later this year, Willis will hit the big screen in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a film from Quentin Tarantino. “It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had on set,” she says. It was particularly special, she says, to be part of a film legacy that includes her dad, Bruce Willis, who played the role of Butch in Tarantino’s 1994 film Pulp Fiction. Willis, 30, who is the eldest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, lives in Los Angeles in a home she has owned for about 10 years. She told Reside® about her favorite items inside it.
Her antique armchair
A necklace from mom
“This is a chair that my mom got me, and I’ve had it since I was 18. It’s been with me in every place that I’ve lived in. It’s the perfect reading chair, and once you sit in it, you definitely don’t want to get up.”
“Jewelry, in general, is important to me, and this one is from my mom. I started collecting charms a couple of years ago, and this one has a charm that reflects everyone in my family.”
A painting from her sister Tallulah
“My little sister Tallulah is a visual artist. For her first art show, I think I bought half of her show. She creates these amazing characters that are poignant. These two are painted in watercolor.”
Sustainable skin products
“I recently discovered a company called Kindred Black that does sustainable, ‘slow’ skin care in beautiful bottles. I’m trying to do things to lower my carbon footprint and be more sustainable. This company uses bottles that look vintage. They could be from the ’70s, or straight out of Game of Thrones. They look amazing and smell incredible.” 26
“I love being able to listen to music this way. Music has always been an important part of my life. Most of my taste is for music created when records were the only option—from the 1940s to the ’70s. I didn’t know 90% of the artists at Coachella.”

Regardless of style or date, single-family homes generally are on 0.15-acre lots. There is also a variety of prices. While the most desirable newer homes, which have three or more bedrooms, are $1.2 million to $2 million, vintage homes that need a fair amount of updating sell for around $600,000, Millheiser says. The neighborhood also offers condos of varying ages that, according to Millheiser, range from $275,000 for smaller, older units to $800,000 for modern, new-construction ones. “It’s possible to get into the single-family-home market for $550,000,” she says. “That would be for a fixer-upper. The land itself on a typical lot is worth $400,000 to $450,000.” WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE

ouldin Creek, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin, Texas, B offers an artistic, bohemian vibe in a
sublime suburban setting of streets shaded by Heritage Oak trees. “With its cool shops, it’s the perfect embodiment of hip Austin,” says Shay Millheiser, a global real estate advisor with Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. “The residents are well-off, but the atmosphere of the neighborhood is understated, not ostentatious.” Founded around 1900, Bouldin Creek is named after Col. James Bouldin, an early settler, and the creek that runs through it. Unlike other communities in the city, it’s designed for walking, whether you’re wearing cowboy boots or Christian Loboutins. It’s a place where longtime residents, young professionals with families, and the occasional celebrity co-exist as equals. “Bouldin Creek,” Millheiser says, “has a little bit of something for everyone.” A MIX OF OLD AND NEW HOMES
The community, which is bordered by South Congress Avenue on the east, the Union Pacific railroad tracks on the west, Barton Springs Road on the north, and West Oltorf Street on the
From its flock of wild peacocks to its funky-fare food trucks and clusters of mom-and-pop coffee shops, Bouldin Creek understates its affluence with an eccentric flair. “All the stores are local,” Millheiser says. “You don’t see chains.” South First Street, the commercial corridor, features the Bouldin Creek Café, which serves meatless meals and what it bills as the city’s best hangover cure—The Leveler, with Guinness, espresso, and chocolate; Seventh Flag Coffee Co., a hangout for locals who stop to sip and chat; and Sway, an award-winning, upscale modern Thai restaurant. Green Pastures, the onetime estate of the neighborhood’s founder and home base for the roaming peacocks, operates as a restaurant and special-events venue. The gustatory scene is dominated by food trucks with punny names, such as Granarly, which offers hand-crafted whiskey-granola blends; Bananarchy, whose frozen banana concoctions include The GOB, a $10 dessert that features two bananas stuck together, double-dipped in chocolate, and rolled in nuts; and Gourdough’s, which creates funky doughnuts like the Flying Pig, with bacon and maple syrup icing. Other Austin-centric shops include Texas Custom Boots, which sells handmade cowboy boots; the Martinez Brothers Taxidermist; Turntable Records, which offers vintage vinyl; and Mana Culture, a boho boutique with apparel and jewelry. What can’t be found in Bouldin Creek can be found nearby. For clubs, residents head to the South Congress neighborhood, an entertainment hub about a half-mile away. Bouldin Creek includes Nicholas Dawson Neighborhood Park, where community artwork meets nature, and Zilker Metropolitan Park, which covers 350 acres. The South Austin Recreation Center, which offers sports ranging from volleyball to kickball, and Auditorium Shores, an urban park, are within walking distance of the neighborhood. One of Bouldin Creek’s main attractions, Millheiser says, is its location. “It’s a stone’s throw from downtown,” she says. “And it’s only three miles from the University of Texas.” 29

GRADE-A GRADIENTS THIS UPDATED VERSION OF COLOR BLOCKING MAKES A MAJESTIC STATEMENT
This wall, from Tempaper, shows blue undertones and gradation.
olor gradients, expressing several hues in the same color family—in C a subtle ombre shift or a more linear
fashion—create artistic ﬂair in an interior. The look often goes from light to dark and, depending on the technique, can produce an ethereal impression or a more whimsical feel. “Color gradients are a great tool for decorative eﬀect, which allow us to play with color palettes in interiors,” says Elnaz Namaki of London-based design ﬁrm Elnaz Namaki Studio. They are a softer, updated version of color blocking and can yield diﬀerent looks by varying the color tone and the strength of the gradient, says Ohiobased Amanda Both, lead designer at Tempaper, a line of adhesive-backed removable wallpaper. “Gradients used in an interior can be uplifting and add depth at the same time,” she says. There are two main techniques used with color gradients; the ﬁrst is a twotone gradation from light to dark within the same color grouping, and the second is a gradient-mix application with tonally diﬀerent colors, Namaki says. It “can be in either vertical or horizontal directions or an overall blend.” Whether the method is used on a wall, accessories, or drapery, it’s one that makes a majestic statement.

CONSIDER THE EFFECTS
The impression you create often depends on the material the color gradient is used on, such as wallpaper, paint, fabric, or glass, Namaki says. Not to mention, “the color family and the size and scale of a color gradient greatly impact the eﬀect on an interior,” she says. When done in neutral tones, the look can be very soft. Using brighter, more saturated hues creates a bolder look. “Personally, I prefer using subtle color gradients within neutral tones of the same color family, such as cream to tan or light gray to dark gray,” she adds. Andrea Magno, a Benjamin Moore color and design expert in New Jersey, suggests using a monochromatic color scheme with varying hues within one particular shade grouping. “Working

upper section will feel lighter with the deeper colors adding weight closer to the ﬂoor,” Magno says. The technique is best for neutrals with similar undertones, Magno says.
PLACEMENT MAKES PERFECT
Applying color gradients in bathrooms can be particularly eye-catching, Namaki says. “The layering of diﬀerent shades within the same color family looks very fresh,” she adds. In this space, she prefers working with colorways such as light green to dark green, light pink to burgundy, or light blue to dark blue. “This is a very simple yet eﬀective way of creating depth and contrast between dark and light within the same color family,” Namaki says. Upholstery, and especially curtains and blinds, are other areas where a color gradient can be showcased. “An ombre two-toned gradation from light to dark works well for blinds and curtains, especially as it frames the windows and walls,” Namaki says. Magno suggests using an ombre approach in a room that has a chair rail or wainscoting by placing the lighter color on the top portion of the walls, a midtone on the lower half of the wall, and a darker hue as the base color. “The
While gradients can be used in any space and applied on mostly any surface— walls, furniture, cabinets, accessories— Tempaper’s Both recommends either going big with one large application, such as a wall expanse, or using the same gradient prints on smaller pieces, such as throw pillows. “Glass that graduates from clear to gray or clear to amber, or cushions that graduate between two colors in a single room, tie everything together and are great ways to bring this eﬀect into a space,” Namaki says. If you are working with a gradient on a larger surface, such as a wall expanse, Magno recommends keeping colors monochromatic. “This is a great choice when the architecture of the home is very open, with one space ﬂowing into the next,” she says. “By creating combinations that are monochromatic, there is an easy color transition from one space to the next. This is also easier on the eyes.”

Forever Fragrances Kilian Hennessy’s pledge to perfumery
The businessman, left, has turned his attention to perfume.
By Kilian (2)
hen it comes to life’s greatest pleasures, Kilian Hennessy’s passion W is palpable.
“True luxury should never be thrown away,” he says. “It should be passed on from one generation to another.” Although his name would lead you to believe otherwise, the luxury that Hennessy, 47, refers to isn’t cognac. Yes, he is a fifth-generation lineal descendant of Richard Hennessy, the prominent cognac producer whose empire dates to 1765. But Kilian Hennessy’s childhood in France—enveloped by extravagance—would usher him on a distinct yet glamorous path: perfumery. “I grew up in a world of traditional, French luxury,” he says. “I honor—and twist—this history into my own contemporary vision of French perfume.”
As a child, Hennessy didn’t lie awake at night dreaming about fragrances. His infatuation with aromatics began in college. About two decades ago, while finishing his studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, he wrote his thesis on the “Semantics of Scents,” a choice that spurred his curiosity about perfume. But it was his interview with budding scent maker Jacques Cavallier (now the in-house perfumer at Louis Vuitton) that would help cultivate his passion for fragrances. “Cavallier taught me everything I know today,” he says. After graduation, Hennessy went on to work for legends such as Christian Dior, Paco Rabanne, Alexander McQueen, and Giorgio Armani before launching his own brand in 2007. By Kilian—an eco-luxury fragrance company—was born when Hennessy eyed a collection of antique perfume bottles at the Baccarat Museum in Paris. Appreciating the craftsmanship that went into creating these exquisite flagons, Hennessy was inspired to introduce fragrances in a traditional light, but with a modern sensibility. “I wanted to put perfumery back on its pedestal by going back to the truth about perfume,” he explains. “Back to the way it was made in the late 19th and early 20th century, while adding a contemporary twist at the same time.” His fragrances take catchy names that reflect the notes and intention of the scents. The top seller, Good Girl Gone Bad—apricot-tinged osmanthus, absolute orange blossom, rose of May, tuberose absolute, jasmine, and narcissus—is a “head-twisting mix of naughty and nice.” Also popular is Straight to Heaven, a fusion of rich, dark rum, creamy vanilla, dried fruit, patchouli, and cedarwood, fashioning “a scent that leads straight to paradise,” and reflects his family’s rich history in cognac. That heritage ultimately helped steer Hennessy’s aspirations in the world of fragrance. He believes crafting cognac and crafting perfume have plenty in common. “They are both complex creations, with many layers, each of which develops over time, be it in a barrel or on the skin,” he says. He recalls “rich and vivid scents” wafting from the cognac cellars when he was a child. He explains that oak barrels steeped in sugar, alcohol, and wood have played a key role in his olfactory signature. “Very often I have the feeling that the smell of these cellars lives in almost all my scents.” According to Hennessy, all By Kilian bottles are refillable, and the packaging is reusable as jewelry boxes or evening clutch bags—a sustainable aspect of the brand—forging a true statement of eco-luxury. Customers purchase a By Kilian perfume in its elegant bottle and box, wear the fragrance, and use the case for a lifetime. “I like the idea that a woman comes to me for beautiful, luxury-scented products that she knows she will keep forever,” he says. 33

hey’re carved into rocks, they jut into oceans. They’re perched over cliffs, seemingly defying gravity. Today’s swimming pools are wet, wild, and wondrous. Designers are going bold with new technologies and audacious ideas. Pools may function as extensions of one’s living spaces, but when builders sculpt backyard environments into dreamscapes, they carry homeowners off into the realm of fantasy. “Setting matters,” says Tom Casey of Anthony & Sylvan Pools headquartered in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. The company builds pools throughout the U.S., from vanishingedge models elevated over bays, lakes, and oceans, to splashy renditions sited high on hillsides to look out over spectacular city skylines. They’ve even engineered pools that flow through the interior living spaces of homes. Design is important, but engineering is everything. When a pool is situated on the edge of a mountain, for instance, “there needs to be absolute assurance of its structural integrity, that the physical structure is exactly where it’s supposed to be and at exactly the elevation it needs to finish with,” Casey says. Newly developed automation and machinery make it easier to hit the mark. Fortunately for homeowners, 3D software allows them to visualize the final result in detail before a shovel is ever put into the ground. A cantilevered pool on an estate on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands is a feat of engineering and a triumph of design. It is on a private, three-acre estate called Celestial House, so named because it sits like an observatory on a ridge above the popular vacation-villa area of West End with commanding views of the brilliant night skies. “The pool is phenomenal,” says Maritha Keil of British Virgin Islands Sotheby’s International Realty. It is the centerpiece of a five-plus-bedroom tropical retreat. With a 60-foot curved horizon edge, the water seemingly cascades into the Caribbean Sea below. Beaches, a national park, distant islands, and even the occasional rainbow make up a breathtaking panorama. Of course, the more complex the project and less accessible the site, the higher the cost. “You can accelerate through six figures very quickly, and passing half a million dollars is not difficult,” Casey says. On the other hand, Keil estimates pools like the one at Celestial House “probably add over a million dollars” to the value of a property. The pool is what elevates a vacation home into a slice of paradise “you don’t ever want to leave,” she says.

In early 2019, the Cadogan Hotel—the former pied-à-terre of Oscar Wilde—reopened as the Belmond Cadogan after a four-year, US$48-million renovation. First opened in 1887, the hotel retains its original Queen Anne design (wood-paneled walls, stained-glass windows, mosaic floors), but has been updated with contemporary art and furniture. Another high-profile newcomer to London’s hotel scene is The Dixon, Tower Bridge, Autograph Collection, which recently opened in the former home of the Tower Bridge Magistrate’s Court & Police Station. The property offers a stylish yet edgy take on its surroundings, as evidenced by the 38
jail cells in the Provisioners restaurant and the Courtroom Bar’s judge’s bench and Edwardian oak paneling. The Hotel Café Royal used to be a social club in the mid-19th century, a favorite for afternoon tea. After an extensive, multiyear restoration, the original Grade II-listed building—formerly a fire station on one side, a bank on the other—reopened in 2012 and is now one of London’s most in-demand hotels. Notable additions include Cakes & Bubbles, a dessert-only restaurant from Albert Adria, and Laurent at Café Royal, a fine-dining spot from Laurent Tourondel. PARIS
The only palatial hotel on the Left Bank of Paris, Hôtel Lutetia reopened in 2018 after a four-year, US$233 million refurbishment.

combat Mughal invaders—stand in sharp contrast to the 59 lavish suites, three restaurants, and a luxurious spa. Taj Connemara, which dates to 1854 (making it South India’s oldest hotel), reopened in 2018 after an extensive, multiyear renovation and redesign. With architectural styles ranging from classic colonial and art deco to tropical modernism, the complex houses 147 rooms and suites, as well as 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens and atrium gardens. CALIFORNIA
Situated along the Mendocino Coast and surrounded by old-growth redwoods, the Harbor House Inn—built in 1916 by Goodyear Redwood—reopened in May 2018 after an eight-year restoration. Guests enjoy activities such as whale watching, hiking to a black-sand beach and waterfall, or foraging for seaweed and sea urchins with the inn’s chefs. The Ackerman Heritage House, opened to the public in 2017, offers some of the most distinctive lodging in Napa. Located in an 1888 Queen Anne Victorian home in downtown Napa, the property thrills oenophiles with its stylish aviary, a wine-tasting room where visitors enjoy Ackerman Family Vineyard’s organic wines. The Francis House in Calistoga, which opened in September 2018 after an extensive three-year renovation, is housed in an 1886 landmark building listed in the National Register of Historic Places. After careful restoration, the former home of the Calistoga Hospital emerged as a luxurious five-room inn. SCOTLAND
The Fife Arms opened in the Scottish
Highlands village of Braemar in January 2019 after an intensive restoration by Iwan and Manuela Wirth, the Swiss founders of the influential Hauser and Wirth art gallery. Originally a 19thcentury Victorian coaching inn, each of the 46 guest rooms pays homage to a different place, person, event, or custom integral to local history, and the property features more than 12,000 works of art.
Alila Yangshuo is set inside a former sugar mill in China, among green hills and winding rivers.
The Exchange Hotel in Cardiff is housed in one of Wales’ most significant buildings, a Grade II-listed complex dating to 1888 that was once home to the Cardiff Coal Exchange. After a £40 million restoration in 2017, the 200room property is now one of the Welsh capital’s most in-demand hotels. Exclusive use of the Roch Castle Hotel—a romantic, six-bedroom Norman castle in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park—fulfills a dream for anyone who has ever wanted to have their own key to a historic castle.

Be sure to catch the sunset in the Gravity Bar, with a 360-degree rooftop view of the city. Against the Grain
At this casual Camden Street bar owned by the Galway Bay Brewery, Ireland’s best craft brews—including half a dozen made in-house—are on tap as well as a few international ones. Guinness, notably, isn’t available, nor are television screens. Good beer and good eats are, though. House Dublin
“Ireland’s nightlife is worldrenowned,” says Sotheby’s International Realty Ireland’s David Ashmore. “Whether [you’re] after a velvety pint of Guinness in an old-time pub, live Irish music in a traditional pub or club, or a pinot noir in a candlelit cafe, your preference can most likely be catered to.” As authentic and timeless as Dublin’s pubs are—one of the oldest in the world, the Brazen Head, is in the central neighborhood of The Liberties—one need not look only to them. From world-class breweries to romantic wine taverns, here are a few of Dublin’s best nightlife spots. Red Bank

The Horseshoe Bar
For an elegant evening with top-notch tipple, pay a visit to this plush, candlelit lounge. Located inside the impeccably tony Shelbourne Hotel, near the famous St. Stephen’s Green park, its name refers to the shape of its bar. Enjoy a whiskey tasting there, or sidle up to the historic bar to meet some colorful local characters—the place is a haunt for regulars. Lemuel’s
This refined drinking lounge is named after the rambling protagonist in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, an Irish classic (the city is rightfully proud of its deep literary past). Bright with pastel hues and fine wooden floors, the bar is a great place to start an evening of adventure. La Cave
This French wine bar, located in a basement with dim lighting, is a great spot for sipping wine, eating foie gras, and swaying to gypsy jazz. Though its 350-bottle wine list would impress any aficionado, it is first and foremost about the atmosphere and good times. One could say the same about Dublin.

A Rarity on the River A Contemporary mansion and Frank Lloyd Wright– Designed House Combine for a Timeless Estate overlooking the Potomac By Iyna Bort Caruso

hen a home designed by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd W Wright is used as a guest house and not
the main residence of an estate, you know you’ve entered rarified territory. Welcome to The Falls. In the Washington, D.C., power suburb of McLean, Virginia, the 3.2-acre estate stands above, overlooking the Potomac River. The setting is equal to the main residence itself—a palatial home of sprawling entertainment spaces, private wings, vistas from every angle, and surprises at every turn. The Falls is named for the estate’s location on arguably the river’s most breathtaking and dynamic stretch of waterfalls and rapids. The drama is dawn-through-dark. At night, floodlights illuminate the Potomac. And beyond the sights are the soundscapes. “With the falls comes a wonderful sound, an ambient sound you only get from the water crossing over and spilling down on the rocks,” says Mark C. Lowham, CEO and Managing Partner of TTR Sotheby’s
International Realty in Washington, D.C. “It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to replicate the position of the home on the river given the current permitting process,” he says. In 1999, AOL co-founder James Kimsey purchased the land in this Gold Coast neighborhood of McLean that lies inside the capital beltway, just a bridge away from Washington, D.C. Kimsey would go on to purchase a fish-shaped, threebedroom house on an adjacent site, the Marden House. Named after the original owners, National Geographic writer and photographer Luis Marden and his wife, Ethel, the home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright—one of his very few houses in Virginia. Kimsey painstakingly rehabbed its flagging retaining walls, water-damaged surfaces, and collapsing roof, all the while keeping it faithful to its original character. He used the restored architectural jewel to house guests and to host intimate gatherings. To this day, river views from an 80-foot expanse of floor-to-ceiling windows never fail to awe visitors. Awe is the reaction visitors also have to the main residence Kimsey built for himself. The approximately 25,505-squarefoot home is designed for both privacy and for epic entertaining. The Falls is widely known in prominent circles for “hosting some of the most interesting events in Washington,” Lowham says. Kimsey, who died in 2016, “loved to entertain in really grand ways.” Kimsey had tapped the talents of interior designer Thomas Pheasant, dubbed the “Dean of American Design.” Pheasant’s high-profile projects include Blair House, the president’s guest house. For Kimsey’s residence, Pheasant included custom-made metal doors, light fixtures, and furnishings. Past a gated entrance and separate gatehouse, the threestory home reveals itself slowly from the long driveway. It’s a hideaway in plain sight that serves up a resort lifestyle: tennis court, wine room, garden pavilion, media room, cigar room, outdoor kitchen, infinity pool, and spa. Whatever the activity, a Potomac River backdrop is never far from view. In fact, from the living room that’s nearly two stories of glass, the view incorporates the rushing river, infinity pool, and the Wright-designed house. There are six guest suites, an underground parking garage with room for 30 vehicles, and a master wing “designed so that the owner can host people but still feel separate and secure,” says Russell Firestone, vice president of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. The master suite offers fob-entry to a library, office, massage room, his-and-hers bathrooms, and a gym. It is accessible by private elevator. Not surprisingly, the bedroom features a balcony that overlooks the river. The home is considered by many to be the finest estate ever offered in the Washington region. “It has had an illustrious history so far, and there’s certainly more to come on that front,” Lowham says. 43
Clear Winners Transparent sapphire- crystal cases reveal the wonders of a mechanical movement
RESIDE SUMMER 2019

or mechanical-watch enthusiasts who obsess over a movement’s Fintricately layered architecture of gears,
wheels, and bridges, a transparent sapphire-crystal case is the ultimate frame for a compelling kinetic sculpture. Today’s watches are generally topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and many are fitted with a sapphire case back for a peek into the mechanism. But some brands are crafting entire cases out of the transparent material, so you can see the mechanics from all sides and angles. Synthetic sapphire crystal is made by crystalizing pure aluminum oxide at extreme temperatures to achieve a material chemically identical to natural sapphire gems. The material measures a 9 on the Mohs scale for hardness, compared with diamond, at 10. Due to its extreme hardness, sapphire crystal is very difficult to machine and polish, requiring diamond-cutting tools. Producing a full case is costly and therefore often reserved for highly technical complications and limited editions. In addition, sapphire weighs less than titanium, so even voluminous cases can remain light. Bovet’s Récital 26 Brainstorm Chapter One (US$318,600) presented an extraordinary engineering challenge due to its unorthodox asymmetrical sloped case, inspired by an old-fashioned writing desk. “A curved middle had never been crafted in sapphire,” says Bovet owner Pascal Raffy in a statement. It required the development of new machining and polishing processes. “Such a profile is much more complex to manufacture,
and it doesn’t tolerate the slightest imperfection.” The panoramic case houses a mesmerizing patented double-face flying tourbillon with a variable inertia balance for heightened precision. At 12 o’clock, where the case is thickest, the cutaway hours-and-minutes dial has a threedimensional moon phase, engraved to mimic the lunar surface and set against a night sky composed of sparkly aventurine glass. Skeleton-watch specialist Armin Strom also cased a highly technical watch in sapphire crystal this year. The Masterpiece 1 Dual Time Resonance Sapphire (US$268,000), limited to eight pieces, combines two completely independent time indications powered by separate movements in resonance, a phenomenon which naturally synchronizes the oscillations of both for extreme precision. Armin Strom spent three years developing its patented Resonance Clutch Spring that connects the two movements. The watch functions as a GMT (a reference to Greenwich Mean Time), a second time zone, or as a timer or countdown. Plus, each time display has an independent power reserve and a 24-hour indication. “This new sapphire case sets the perfect stage for the detailed work and passion we put into the Dual Time Resonance,” says Claude Greisler, Armin Strom’s co-founder, in a statement. The transparency “doesn’t allow for any mistakes and demands a finish on the highest level, which goes in line with our philosophy.” A pioneer in the specialty, Hublot has offered sapphirecrystal cases for years. In 2017, it accomplished the feat of creating large colored panes of sapphire, which has allowed it to produce translucent cases in shades of smoky black, red, blue, and now yellow in this year’s Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire (US$106,000). In an industry first, Hublot created the sunny hue by infusing the aluminum oxide with copper. Limited to 100 pieces, the 42mm Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire dramatically showcases its engine, a Hublot-modified and finished skeletonized version of the legendary Zenith El Primero automatic chronograph movement, which marks its 50th anniversary this year.

Nicobar’s Modern Indian Style Clothing and home goods that celebrate Southeast Asian culture and heritage
e come from a deep love for our heritage and culture,” says Simran “W Lal, co-founder of Nicobar, the buzzed-
about, Delhi-based lifestyle label. “Be it our textiles, our crafts, our aesthetic, or our beautiful philosophy of deep integration and connectedness with nature,” she explains, describing the company she established in 2016 with her husband, Raul Rai. Nicobar (named for an island arc between India and Thailand) was derived from “journeys across the Indian Ocean,” as the couple was born and raised in India but spent time traveling through Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Their vision led the pair to build a collection celebrating the ancestry and beauty of their home country. “We wanted to create a contemporary brand that was a reflection of the modern Indian way of living, dressing, and looking at the world,” Rai says. Thus, Nicobar caters to style-conscious Indians at home and abroad. The label offers Indian-inspired clothing with a tropical-resort feel— light, breathable kurtas and tunics, home goods such as pillows with whimsical patterns and prints, and stylish-yetpractical travel pieces intended to be mixed. The venture was born from Good Earth—a luxury retailer owned by Lal’s mother—where Lal was CEO. “My mother and I wanted to create a simpler line that speaks to the modern Indian aesthetic,” she says. That modern Indian aesthetic is apparent in Nicobar’s assemblage
of items. Fashioned by designer and stylist Aparna Chandra, the women’s and men’s pieces focus on fit, form, and fabric. Styling and layering are the essential themes, according to Rai. He and Lal aim to connect the Nicobar consumer with the beauty of what they’re wearing as well as the environment in which the clothing is rooted. For instance, garments of soft, supple cotton echo classic Indian dress, but lean fashion-forward in their detailing. White is often a base, and splashes of color add punch. Graceful silhouettes and comfort are key. “Our products have Indianness as an undercurrent, but should be easily used whether in a London tube or a New York subway,” Rai says. Many pieces are versatile enough to wear every day or can be readily accessorized for that special occasion. The Nico Dress, one of the brand’s staples, can be worn alone or as an overlay. Lal says it’s “an easy, breezy, and universally flattering dress that has gotten love from a legion of women.” Hence, it sells out quickly. Created with globetrotters in mind, the travel line is both fashionable and practical, and includes bags, clothing, and accessories—from totes to toiletry kits to shoe sacks and scarves—“designed to be worn and carried with ease, and with each other,” Rai says. In Nicobar’s home decor pieces, simplicity is key, but so is a global sensibility. Some items, like kulhars—
traditional handleless clay cups—are multifunctional. “Our kulhars can be used to drink sake in Japan or espresso in Italy,” Rai says. Moreover, Lal explains cups aren’t just for tea but have been used as everything from yogurt pots to jewelry organizers to succulent planters to wine vessels. Other Indian-influenced housewares, such as the lotus-leaf brass bowl, monkey coasters, and “Indian Ocean” kitchenware, made through a collaboration with master chef Gary Mehigan and his wife, Mandy, ooze Indian flavor. “Our Indianness is, I feel, quite effortless because we are Indian, and it is us, a part of our lives,” Lal says. “It does show up in what we create.” Since its launch, the label has worked its way into rooms and closets around the world, through 12 retail stores in cities such as Mumbai, Goa, and Chennai, with more in the works.

history unfolds like the petals of an intoxicating, exotic flower. The 361,861-square-foot concreteand-steel museum, which opened in the capital city of Doha in March, boldly embraces the past. Its spectacular, saucer-shaped discs form a necklace whose ends are clasped by the historic palace of Sheik Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, son of the founder of modern Qatar. Nouvel’s design was inspired by the aptly named desert rose, a flower-like aggregate of mineral crystals that forms only in the country’s coastal regions. “It’s the first architectural structure that nature itself creates, through wind, sea spray, and sand acting together over millennia,” he writes in his architectural statement.
The French architect is known for his daring designs, many of them with overthe-top theatrical elements. His Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, for instance, features a facade made of mechanical oculi that open and close via photoelectric cells in response to light. His Louvre Abu Dhabi is defined by a dome with pierced openings that look like interwoven palm leaves and a complex arrangements of stars. Nouvel designed the National Museum of Qatar to reflect three interconnected story lines: the peninsula and its inhabitants; the exploration of the coastal and desert lifestyles and the pearling industry; and the rapid economic acceleration prompted by the discovery of oil, and then gas. “Symbolically, the architecture of the museum evokes the desert, its silent and eternal dimension, but also the modernity and daring that have
come along and shaken up what seemed unshakable,” he writes. “So it’s the contradictions in that history that I’ve sought to evoke.” Nouvel’s interlocking, multiangled discs form gorgeous geometric spaces that, he writes, “are architectural, spatial, and sensory all at once. You find spaces that don’t exist anywhere else in the world.” Emulating the perfect imperfection of nature, Nouvel put some of the museum’s sand-colored polished concrete floors on an incline. “You walk under them, you walk up, and you become aware that there are hardly any vertical lines anywhere,” he writes. The walls, too, are more than they seem: Films about Qatar and its history are screened on them. Nouvel uses the odd-shaped spaces to spring what he calls architectural surprises, the biggest of which is the royal palace, which appears at the end of the two-hour tour and opens to a traditional central courtyard. From this shaded and sheltered space, visitors can stroll along a promenade at water’s edge and enter a 28.4-acre park that reinterprets the country’s landscapes, with low sand dunes, flooded crops, and gardens inspired by sabkhas and oases. The park features a 2,952-foot-long lagoon and ALFA, a work by French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel that includes 114 black fountains whose shapes resemble Arabic calligraphy or the reeds calligraphers use to make their pens. Inside and out, Nouvel’s National Museum of Qatar is meant to make a grand statement. “From the moment you step inside,” he writes, “you’re struck by the relationship between the form and the scale, between the theme and the different eras dealt with, between the small desert rose that comes down to us from out of the mists of time and this outside creation.”

Satisfying a Need for Speed Regional racetracks offer a fun racing experience for car - club members
A BMW takes the lead at Monticello Motor Club.
Fast action at a Monticello Motor Club member day.
Monticello Motor Club (2)
say you just bought a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso with a top speed of 208 Lmileset’s per hour and acceleration of zero
to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Where are you going to exploit its potential? Certainly not on congested U.S. highways, with speed traps at every corner. Your best bet is joining a car club (either general or specific to your model), taking performance-driving lessons, and signing up for a track day. Most racetracks have one-day and weekend programs for novice-to-expert civilians with a fast car and a can-do attitude. “Track days have given the highperformance driver a safe venue to fulfill the ‘need for speed’ in a controlled environment,” says Peter Bush, a gearhead radio host based in Connecticut. “In most cases, instructors are provided for both the newbie and the seasoned driver looking to further hone his or her skills. Track days make better drivers, and they’re a far better choice than the liability of operating irresponsibly on public roads.” The private Monticello Motor Club in the Catskill Mountains of New York holds its events at a 4.1-mile track with 22 turns and 1.5 miles of straightaways, on the site of the former regional airport. The club, now in its 10th year, “started out with a few guys who had nice cars and wanted to drive them,” says Nat Mundy, the club’s executive vice president. “Now it’s more formalized; it’s not just us renting a parking lot somewhere.” All are welcome, he says: “The cars are Mazda Miatas, Porsches, all kinds of cars.”
On the West Coast of the U.S., the aptly named Fast Toys Car Club sponsors all-day track events at multiple tracks. A one-year racer membership guarantees a spot at five events in California or Nevada. The events offer the option to drive your own car as much as you’d like, although the track is limited to 40 cars. The price of admission includes a driving coach, lunch, and access to garages at some tracks. Winter is the busy season at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Fla., says Adam Ricardel, director of road course operations there. “The track has been here since 1965,” he says, “and it’s a 2.1-mile racecourse with a drag strip and a setup for autocross. We rent it out to clubs and race teams from all over the country. The clubs that are most prevalent are for BMW and Porsche owners—they’re true enthusiasts—and the Mazda Miata, which because of the Spec Miata series is the mostraced car in the U.S. on a day-to-day basis,” Ricardel adds. Joe Casella is director of the National Auto Sport Association’s northeast U.S. region, which holds Spec Miata events as well as more general track days. “We get guest clubs that want to come and run,” he says. “And on track days, we go from the beginner level up to full-blown racing.” Casella says renting the Lime Rock Park track in Connecticut can cost US$25,000 for a day, and an average of 120 cars might come out to drive. In Palm Beach and other places, beginners can hook up with the for-profit Hooked on Driving franchise and progress through a training program that starts with novices, who drive with expert co-drivers, up to experienced levels. Mark Sherman, webmaster for the Vintage Sports Car Club of America and the owner of a 1953 MG TD, says that when his club holds open-track days, “anyone can bring any type of car. We have several hundred members who own vintage sports cars of the pre- and postwar periods, and they get to take them on the track. Some call it ‘vintage racing,’ but it’s really just about having fun on the track. Our philosophy is to use the cars as they were intended to be used.” Bob Coates, a New York resident, is track-event chair for the Ferrari Club of America and the proud owner of a priceless Ferrari Daytona. Although these valuable cars are often treated as low-mileage “garage queens,” Coates’ car, which he has owned for 43 years, has more than 100,000 miles on it. “Driving it is better than therapy,” he says. There are also clubs that give members temporary loans of exclusive classic and supercars for their own private use. And some of these clubs operate globally. Britain-based PI International, for instance, has a special membership for Singaporeans with business in the U.K. three or four weeks a year. Membership is from US$7,000 to US$17,500 a year, and a major plus is access to the club’s fleet, which usually includes gems from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Mercedes-Benz AMG, depending on availability. 51

Ringing in 275 years The oldest company on the New York Stock Exchange, Sotheby’s celebrates a grand anniversary as AN art-world pioneer
n March 11, 2019, Sotheby’s Chairman Domenico De Sole, along with nearly 100 employees, including Chief ExecuO tive Tad Smith, celebrated Sotheby’s 275th anniversary at the New York Stock Exchange. Established on March 11, 1744, with a London books auction that totaled £826, Sotheby’s holds the distinction of being the oldest company on the exchange. Today the multibillion-dollar business has offices in 80 cities around the world. Sotheby’s might be celebrating 275 years, but its attitude has always been one of facing forward. It was the first auction house to open offices in America in 1955, and the first to hold sales in Asia in 1973. Sotheby’s pioneered the format of the evening “event” auctions that are today a mainstay of the sale season. It’s a Sotheby’s auction in the 1970s that is credited with transforming the modern art market, when Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg became the first artists to see their own works sold under the hammer. In 2004, a Rose Period
Picasso was the first piece to achieve more than $100 million, and in 2018, online sales totaled more than $220 million. Some of the world’s most precious objects and collections have passed through Sotheby’s: Napoleon’s library (1823), the original manuscript for Alice’s Adventures Under Ground (1928), Einstein’s writings on the Theory of Relativity (1987), the Andy Warhol Collection (1988), Martin Luther King, Jr.’s library (2006), and Marie-Antoinette’s jewels (2018). This year will also mark a significant transformation of Sotheby’s physical premises: In May, new galleries at the Manhattan headquarters were unveiled, and October will see spectacular upgrades to the New Bond Street property in London, where the business was born.

Sea Snacks These salty snacks are healthy— and tasty, too
Tempura Seaweed Snacks
Seaweed snacks—crunchy pieces of dried seaweed dusted with salt and other seasonings—have been around for some time, but Nora Tempura Seaweed Snacks open up a whole new category of tastiness. That’s because the seaweed is dipped in wheat flour and tapioca starch before hitting the fryer, resulting in a delightful crunch. There’s only a hint of that ocean taste here. This snack also brings the added bonus (or curse?) of being addictive; it’s possible to eat an entire bag, either in the original or spicy flavor. Water Lily Pops
Taali Popped Water Lily snacks are made from the seeds of the water lily. This superfood snack is available in different flavors, from Himalayan Pink Salt to Tangy Turmeric. They have the texture of popcorn—without the annoying kernel that gets stuck in your teeth—or of an airy cheese puff (gasp). Kelp jerky is one of many snacks from the ocean that offer tasty goodness with less guilt.
For the wheat/gluten/carb-averse, kelp noodles are an alternative that are 100% grain free. These “noodles” from the natural-food company Gold Mine are literally just strands of kelp from the ocean, cut into the shape of spaghetti. They don’t need to be cooked, but if put into broth, they will absorb the flavors nicely. The noodles by themselves have a bland taste, and the texture is much chewier than pasta noodles. Savage says kelp, a type of seaweed, is a “good vegetarian source of iron and is chock-full of minerals, especially iodine, which is critical for thyroid function.”
n these times of culinary substitution, perhaps it isn’t surprising that people are swapping in seaweed snacks for chips, and puffed lily seeds for popcorn. While eating greens has always been a goal, looking to the sea for them is a creative and tasty trend we’re seeing now. According to nutritionist and registered dietician Eliza Savage, “fish, seaweed, kelp, and other items from the sea contain an abundance of nutrients. Seaweed and kelp are great vegetarian sources of protein, fiber, and minerals.” Of course, the new items must, first and foremost, taste good. Here are some creative ones to try—beyond just plain, dried seaweed.
Salted Egg Fish Skin
A salty and crunchy snack hits the spot in delicious ways. Enter crispy fish skin, which delivers crunch and salt with nutrients, too.“Having a snack that combines protein and some healthy fat”is a good thing, Savage says. And salmon is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids, among other nutrients. Epi’s Salted Egg Fish Skin snack is supercrispy and has an almost buttery consistency, like the inside of a soft-boiled egg. Kelp Jerky
We’re calling it now: Kelp jerky is on track to become the next kale chip. Eating less red meat is better for the planet, environmental activists say, which is the idea that Akua, a company that recently debuted jerky made from kelp instead of beef, is banking on. According to its website, the seagreens-sourced product is nutrient-dense, high protein, and sustainably harvested. It’s available in three flavors: sea salt, BBQ, and High Thai’d (coconut and turmeric). 55

staples: NoHo’s Great Jones Street and the award-winning cookbook editor Judith Jones (1924-2017), who also was known for rescuing The Diary of Anne Frank from the rejection pile. There is a definite playfulness to the brand, a direct-to-consumer operation launched in 2017 by two 20-something childhood friends, Sierra Tishgart and Maddy Moelis. (The two met as kids at a summer camp, “where we bonded over a love of Chipwich ice-cream sandwiches and pizza pockets,” they write on their website.) Their products, which come packaged in bright, retro wrapping, have playful names. The Dutch oven is the Dutchess; the big stockpot the Big Deal; the skillet Small Fry; and the saucepan Saucy. Great Jones’ slick-yet-lively products suggest cooking should be first and foremost a fun affair. The brand itself is a product of youthful optimism. Tishgart, a James Beard Award-winning editor at New York magazine’s food vertical, Grub Street, was dismayed by the extravagant prices of quality cookware. With childhood friend and University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School graduate Moelis, Great Jones was launched to provide dependable, ethically produced goods with affordable prices. “Style has to meet substance,” Tishgart tells Reside®. It has, so far, been a wildly successful start. The company, through the venture capital firm General Catalyst, recently raised $2.75 million in seed funding; investors include the founders of the

In the world of home products, brands that sell their products without third-party retailers are increasingly common. (Moelis previously worked at one of America’s most successful direct-to-consumer brands, eyeglasses giant Warby Parker, and at Zola, a wedding-registry service and seller of cookware.) Great Jones is generally more affordable than legacy brands like Staub and Le Creuset, with comparable quality. The Dutchess, which comes in five food-focused colors—broccoli, Earl Grey, mustard, macaron, and blueberry—retails at US$175. A full Great Jones set costs US$395. The Small Fry is US$45. During the research-and-development phase, Moelis and Tishgart tried to cover all the bases. With 3D-printed designs, they consulted “culinary pros” throughout New York, from Momofuku’s David Chang to Tishgart’s local butcher. Their stainless-steel products are “fully clad,” meaning they possess an aluminum core, which allows heat distribution throughout the entire surface. Other details were painstakingly worked out: how to keep the products weighty but not too heavy; how to make the handles as ergonomic as possible; how to ensure food doesn’t get trapped in slopes or curves. All of the items, too, had to look good. As they proudly proclaim on their website: “Cookware shouldn’t be relegated to underneath your sink.”

pops of color emstone jewelry is strutting its peacock feathers this season. G Emeralds, rubies, and blue sapphires
are accenting classic diamond pieces, and gemstones are bringing a rainbow to contemporary rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. “My clients wear haute couture, and they want something new, something provocative that’s a conversation piece,” says Parisian designer Lydia Courteille, whose imaginative collections reflect myriad colors and emotions. “You can wear multiple colors at once, or you can choose one color to match your lipstick, your eyes, your nails, or even your shoes.” She adds that when you wear a colorful outfit, “you should choose coordinating gemstone colors, not
matching ones, which is old-fashioned.” Nadine Aysoy, a London-based designer, suggests wearing gemstones of different shades of the same color for an elegant, understated look. “You can wear colored gemstones from morning through evening,” she says. “You can add and subtract color depending on the circumstances. My earrings, for example, are designed so that you can wear studs in the office and add parts for special occasions.” Layering is another way to make a statement. “You might take several bracelets or rings of different colors and wear them together. Be playful with your combinations,” Aysoy says. Graziela Kaufman, a Brazilian designer based in Chicago who is launching a rainbow collection, prefers
pairing colored gemstones with solid colors. “You also should have separation between the gemstone colors you choose,” she says. “If, for instance, you’re wearing a necklace and earrings, only one should be colorful. Colorful studs in the ears, however, are OK to wear with a colorful necklace because they make less of a statement. And if you’re wearing earrings and a ring, both can be colorful because they are farther apart.” Kaufman says hands and ears are the best places to display colors. “You can stack colorful rings all in one color on one finger,” she says. “Or you can have three stacked rings on each hand, each a different color.” Another way to wear all the colors

Rainbow gemstones always add some excitement to a look

of the rainbow is to choose pieces made with tourmalines, which change colors depending on the light and/or angle. Aysoy, for instance, pairs bicolor and tricolor tourmalines with pearls. Kaufman, too, is partial to the stone. “The Paraiba tourmaline is my signature,” she says. “Its colors are almost electric.” London-based jewelry specialist and gemologist Katerina Perez suggests tailoring rainbow gemstones to complement the suit, dress, or the jeans, as well as the occasion. “It is best to pair multicolored jewels with a simple monochrome outfit— anything white, or one of the colors reflected in the gemstone jewelry you choose,” she says. The real beauty of gemstones, says
Jean-Christophe Bedos, president and CEO of the Canada-based luxuryjewelry brand Groupe Birks, is that they are made to be mixed and matched. “Pearls are making a comeback in a very high-fashion way in modern silhouettes,” he says. “People are wearing layered earrings up the lobes, long strands of pearls, and multiple bracelets stacked up the arm. They look great mixed with brighter stones to create high impact.” Gemologist social-media influencer Danielle Miele, the founder of Gem Gossip, says the rules for wearing rainbow gemstones aren’t diamond-hard. “Wearing jewelry however you like to suit your own personal style—and if it makes you happy—is the right way to go,” she says.
Colorful jewelry can be worn from morning to evening and match any other part of your outfit.

Kahlo has become something of an icon, showing up on the walls of cafes, urban graffiti works, and guitar-case stickers the world over. Even if one doesn’t know who Kahlo was, most will recognize her image. Kahlo became “first a legend, then a myth, and now a cult figure,” wrote the art historian Hayden Herrera in a 1992 biography. Like Che Guevara or Bob Marley, she lives on as a pop-cultural symbol. Here are some of the places in the world to glimpse her art today. The Blue House
Where to see the famous Mexican artist’s work
Kahlo has become a cultural icon.
With its boundary-defying, surrealist aesthetics, Kahlo’s work fits in wonderfully at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. There are three of her works there, all self-portraits. Fulang-Chang and I (1937) depicts her with her beloved pet monkey; the other two—My Grandparents, My Parents, and I (Family Tree) (1936) and Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair (1940)—are self-explanatory. National Museum of Women in the Arts
rida Kahlo, that iconic Mexican artist from the early 20th century, was a true eccentric. In her art, she was impatient, often switching between styles: self-portraiture, surrealism, magical realism, still life. She was prone to extravagant fashion choices, with a wardrobe that was as flamboyant as it was extensive. Politically, she was extreme, an activist and member of the Mexican Communist Party. Physically, she suffered: Struck by a car in her youth while also afflicted by polio, she endured 30 operations throughout her life. Her medical troubles greatly influenced her art, as did her social activism. She was, in all senses of the phrase, a true original.
At this expertly curated Washington, D.C., museum one can find Self-Portrait Dedicated to Leon Trotsky, a painting done following the brief affair she had with the Russian Communist after he went into exile in Mexico City in 1937. The painting, one of the only works by a Mexican artist at the museum, was donated by Clare Boothe Luce, an American playwright, socialite, and congresswoman. In the painting, Kahlo clasps a letter addressed to Trotsky which reads, “with all my love.” Museo Dolores Olmedo
Located in Xochimilco, at the southern end of Mexico City, this wonderful museum features works from the collection of the late Mexican businesswoman Dolores Olmedo (19082002). Twenty-seven of her exquisite Kahlo paintings, along with some sketches, attract regular crowds of admiring Fridalovers. It is the largest Kahlo collection in the world (many of Rivera’s works are also there). A jewel of the collection is one of Kahlo’s masterpieces, The Broken Column (1944), a surrealist self-portrait exploring her medical problems.

Frida Around the World
Otherwise known as the Frida Kahlo Museum, this sprawling, bright house in Coyoacán, Mexico City, was the home Kahlo shared with painter Diego Rivera. In 1958, four years after her death from a pulmonary embolism at age 47, it was converted into a museum, now one of the most popular in Mexico and the nexus for Frida fandom, with around 25,000 visitors a month. Gawk at her private belongings—her paintbrushes, bookcases, letters, dresses, kitchenware—along with paintings, sketches, and sculptures, all of it wonderfully explained in well-positioned plaques.

Closed - Loop Cocktails Beverage directors look to incorporate sustainability in their drink menus everage directors and bartenders across the globe are looking closely B at ways to reinvent—and reinvigorate—
Cocktails at Hunky Dory were inspired by the principles of minimal waste.
their cocktails in accordance with principles of sustainability. From environmentalism to economics and from creativity to taste, there’s a lot at stake. Food waste and related issues are on the minds of restaurant executives and chefs, and the push to join the movement extends to all corners of the hospitality industry. Claire Sprouse is a Texas native who has worked in restaurants in Brooklyn, New York, and San Francisco. Sprouse is also the co-founder of Tin Roof Drink Community, a consultancy that works with restaurant owners, bartenders, and other hospitality groups to find more-sustainable practices. In Brooklyn, at Sprouse’s new restaurant and bar, Hunky Dory, she has created a cocktail program inspired by the principles of minimal waste. In order to use all parts of an ingredient in their drinks (often referred to
as “closed-loop cocktails”) bartenders and mixologists have to get creative. “It isn’t limiting,” Sprouse says. “It should inspire you to create new flavors.” To that end, at Hunky Dory all parts of fruits and some vegetables are utilized. Peaches are dehydrated and pulsed in a blender with salt for an unexpected salt rim. Lemons and limes are juiced, then the rinds are washed and either dehydrated or soaked in water or sugar. They can then be turned into fruit-zestinfused salts and sugars, citrus cream, or citrus syrup. Hunky Dory even makes a cocktail using old coffee grounds: The Stop and Stay is made with Averna, rum, and “old brew.” For Sprouse, the goal isn’t only to increase awareness of sustainability. This is, after all, a business of pleasure and taste. “These are new flavors,” she says. “And new learning opportunities.” Bartender and author Ryan Chetiyawardana (also known as Mr. Lyan) has been practicing sustainable cocktailing since opening his first bar, White
Lyan (now closed), in London’s Hoxton neighborhood in 2013. He famously declared his bar perishable-free, including skipping fruit and ice, to showcase an extreme commitment to environmentalism. “The key is to look at the details and the individual idiosyncrasies,” he says. “Nature varies, and that is a wonderful thing. By avoiding a formulaic approach, not only can you use ingredients more completely, you can get a better result from them, too.” One cocktail recipe Chetiyawardana loves, and that includes all parts of an ingredient, is the whiskey sour from his second book, Good Together. Made with an entire half a lemon—peel, pith, and all—it’s something that can be replicated at home. “It’s a great one for at home that uses excess, trim, and whole ingredients effectively,” he says. Chetiyawardana, who was named International Bartender of the Year in 2015 by Tales of the Cocktail, a nonprofit industry organization, is set to open a bar in Washington, D.C., called Silver Lyan by the end of 2019. As for why sustainable cocktails are increasingly sought after, he says, “People realize that everyone has their own part to play, and their choices can mean a better future whilst still being about the delicious things they want.”
Sloane Crosley on Her Favorite Funny Books The writer, known for her witty essays, offers five picks
Ungano + Agriodimas
hen Sloane Crosley published her first collection of essays—2008’s I Was Told There’d Be Cake, which was critically acclaimed and became a New York Times bestseller— she didn’t realize the book would be marketed as humor. “When my first book came out, the category suggestion on the upper left-hand corner said ‘Essays/Humor’ and I thought, thank you. That’s a very nice thing that has nothing to do with me,” she says. Since then, though, she’s had plenty to do with humor, writing two more essay collections and a novel. She has also been a finalist for the Thurber Prize for American humor writing, and judged the competition twice. Her latest book, Look Alive Out There, with essays that mine humor from experiences as disparate as dealing with bad neighbors and making the decision to freeze one’s eggs, is out in paperback, and Crosley, 40, is at work on a new novel. Her essays often spring from moments of annoyance or frustration that later bloom into something more. “It’s usually an experience in which something becomes a heightened brand of ridiculousness that I think, ‘OK, this is getting written about. I have no choice but to address this,’ ” Crosley says. “My humor is the humor of exasperation.” When reading, Crosley turns to authors who write in a wide range of styles, not always branded as humor, but nevertheless very funny. Here are a few of her favorites:
The Sellout by Paul Beatty
“This is a book that doesn’t give when you press on it. It’s incredibly dense with humor in such a way where that is part of the joke. When I’m writing, my style is such that if I’m worried I’m being too ingratiating or not having enough faith in readers, I’ll take one joke out of every paragraph. But Beatty leans into it.” 2 Christmas is a Sad Season for the Poor by John Cheever
“Cheever is so funny and doesn’t get enough credit for it. He writes about the melancholy of suburbia and the chokehold of it, and it’s beautiful writing.” 3
At Freddie’s by Penelope Fitzgerald
“This is a great novel—it’s very subtle, and very British. It takes place in the 1960s and is about a children’s theater school where everything is taken very seriously. There’s a Christopher Guest element to it. It’s really charming and nimble.” 4
Home Land by Sam Lipsyte
“It’s funny when you get jealous of a book for doing something that never would have occurred to you. It’s like going to an art gallery and thinking, I could do this. Of course, the silent retort is, ‘But you didn’t.’ Home Land is structured as class notes in a high school alumni magazine. ... The entire novel is written as a series of letters to the magazine from the main character, and he’s not doing well.” 5
The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith
“Zadie Smith is sharply hilarious, both in her nonfiction and her fiction. The Autograph Man doesn’t get as much attention as it should, but it’s very funny. Something is happening with our need to heavily categorize everything. ... You don’t have to fit into someone else’s box. It’s strange that books are spoken about and marketed in such grossly uncomplicated ways.” 63

echnological advancements in photography have moved shutterbugs far beyond their smartphone cameras. TThe six cameras below fit all lifestyles and skill sets—from the weekend enthusiast to the career professional.
Camera Ready High -tech innovation focuses its lens on the point-and - shoot
Best for Travel: Panasonic Lumix ZS200 / TZ200
Hop a flight with Panasonic’s Lumix ZS200 / TZ200 tucked in your pocket for a versatile, durable point-and-shoot camera that provides a 15X zoom and a 20.1 megapixel resolution with a Leica DC lens. This camera is part of Panasonic’s popular travel-zoom series, making it ideal for traveling photographers of any skill level. It has an electronic viewfinder, 3-inch touchscreen, and 4K video, and costs just under $800.
In order to capture the quick movements in sports or action photography, a camera must be fast-focusing and have a high frame rate. Sony’s full-frame A9 mirrorless camera has that, starting at $4,498. The A9 captures 20 frames a second with a 24.2 megapixel resolution and an electronic, high-speed, antidistortion shutter. It’s equipped with 4K video and impeccable autofocus, so it’s easy to keep an eye on the action. Best in Style: Fujifilm X100F
Best in Versatility: Nikon Z6
Mirrorless cameras—which lack optical viewfinders and have replaced DSLR cameras—are the latest trend among big camera brands. The Nikon Z6 takes the mirrorless track with a lightweight, weather-resistant camera that can be taken anywhere. The Z6 features 24.5 megapixels and a high-resolution electronic viewfinder with a 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen, ideal for professional-quality results. The Z6 grabs 12 frames a second and has interchangeable lens options. The price starts at $1,999.95, but the Z7—its pricier, higher-end sister—comes in at $3,399.95. Both versions are equipped with 4K video, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and in-body stabilization. Best in Innovation: Light L16
The Sony A9 captures quick movements in sports and action photography.
Best in Action: Sony A9
Imagine a camera with 16 lenses that combine 10 different images—captured at different exposures—into one high-quality photo. With a resolution of 52 megapixels, the L16’s compact, sleek design with a 5-inch, high-definition touchscreen provides ultimate creative freedom when it comes to on-camera photo editing for zooming, cropping, focusing, and enlarging. The innovative technology of the L16 also includes a 5X optical zoom. The L16 retails for $1,950.
Fujifilm created the X100F for the photographer looking for style points with the authentic feel of an old camera. The retro look of this compact camera isn’t its only attribute, however. The X100F has a hybrid viewfinder (optical or electronic), is Wi-Fi-enabled, and offers 91 focus points as well as six autofocus modes. With prices starting at $1,299, the camera also comes with a 24.3 megapixel resolution, records HD video in six frame rates, and has a 3-inch fixed display screen. Best in Professionalism: Leica S
Starting at $19,995, the rugged DSLR Leica S (TYP 007) isn’t for the hobby photographer. This camera, with 37.5 megapixels and a capture rate of 3.5 frames a second, was created for the professional willing to brave the elements for that perfect shot, thanks to its dustand weather-resistant engineering.
