WHEN ONE CONTEMPLATES GREAT DESIGN, THEMES EMERGE. IT MIGHT BE EXPECTED THAT THESE WOULD BE AESTHETIC PRINCIPLES, AN EXPERT’S EXPERIENCE OR EDUCATION, OR THE HOMEOWNER’S LEVEL OF INVOLVEMENT. CERTAINLY, THOSE FACTORS PLAY A ROLE IN ANY PROJECT. BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT, SO OFTEN, THE MARKER OF IMPACTFUL DESIGN IS AN ALL-IMPORTANT, BEHIND-THE-SCENES INGREDIENT: COLLABORATION.

This is rarely exemplified so well as in the relationship between interior designer and paint contractor. After the style whiz selects the perfect palette to complement architecture, building materials, furnishings and accessories, those talented with a brush bring it to fruition with deft hands and a deeply rooted understanding of application techniques, product

composition, layering and more. When interior designer and paint contractor meet in the middle, a true marriage of art and science is at work. In this special section presented in partnership with Benjamin Moore, 10 such dynamic duos showcase the perspectives, craftsmanship and love for hue and tone that they pour into every project. Introducing, the Faces of Design.

IANTHA CARLEY + JAMES LACKFORD

When clients expect close to perfection, smoothing the behind-the-scenes processes is key. Enter, designer Iantha Carley and paint expert James Lackford. The husbandand-wife team has built a gorgeous portfolio, with Iantha contributing the eye for color and James keeping upto-date on products and techniques. And while Iantha’s attention to detail is most immediately noticed in a completed space, James plays that role too. “Putting the paint on is the easy part. The prep takes the most time. One of my best guys goes out at night with a bare bulb and circles everything he finds wrong on the surface.” ianthainteriors.com, properpaintandpaper.com

SARAH BROUGHTON + ENRIQUE AND LUIS PENA

How did you three come to work together?

Sarah: We believe that walls are our canvas and backdrop to life and art—the quality of the painting is important. So, we like to work with level-five finishes a lot. Early on in our firm, Enrique executed that with fantastic attention to detail and dedication to craft. We have worked together for the 20 years since!

Describe the impact of paint on interiors.

Enrique: Paint can give everything a rhythmic look by connecting many aspects of the project, creating intimacy or openness across spaces.

Paint a picture of the design journey and the role you play within it. Luis: We try to see things from the perspective of the design team, making their vision beautiful with color and craftsmanship. rowlandbroughton.com, forrestpaintingcolorado.com

“People often try to identify what creates that ce rtain sense of elegance and luxury in their favorite spaces. It’s the paint and finishes.”

JAMIE DRAKE AND CALEB ANDERSON

+ JONATHAN KUTZIN

In historic, iconic spaces, selecting paint can be daunting. Every hue should be perfectly attuned to the design, worthy of the home’s precedence, elegant yet ahead of the trends. Such is the challenge that often faces Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson. Beloved for their balance of timelessness and today, the designers embrace the art of “repolishing” interiors in buildings like One57 and Herzog & de Meuron’s 56 Leonard. And behind the scenes, one partner has played a key role. Jonathan Kutzin met the design duo when they collaborated at a Kips Bay Decorators Show House in 2008. The rest is a history of perfect pairing. “I work almost exclusively with the design community to deliver top quality in high-end environments,” Jonathan shares. “I have developed many unique specialty finishes, including one that incorporates eyeshadow into the medium and others with mica flakes and iron oxides.” With this innovative mindset, he creates capsule collections of samples for each of Jamie and Caleb’s illustrious projects. As for the team’s favorite formula, Jamie says, “Benjamin Moore AURA®’s quality makes it our go-to pick.” drakeanderson.com, americapainting.nyc

SAN FRANCISCO, CA

EMILIE MUNROE + RYE NAZARIAN

Asked to share the story of her collaboration with paint craftsman Rye Nazarian, designer Emilie Munroe says, “There is no lack of stories to share over a glass of wine!” Indeed, from executing an entire project during a client’s two-week vacation to perfecting the boldest of hues (an Emilie signature), the duo is always up to a challenge. Rye speaks to one he often undertakes: “There is this ‘freshly fallen snow look’ people are often seeking. We do it by using 18-inch rollers and a sprayer loaded with Benjamin Moore Regal in a dead flat finish on the ceiling.” studiomunroe.com, surfacepaintdesign.com

“Paint can be the star or supporting role. I like when we use it to surprise or ‘wink’ at you—a bright orange peeking at you from the back of a bookcase.”
I N P A R T N E R S H I P W I T H B E N J A M I N M O O R E

AUSTIN, TX

SARA MALEK BARNEY + LISA AND PETER MOON

Upon being asked to describe the impact paint has on an interior, Lisa Moon says, “Use of light, use of color and good space planning are the essence of great design. If any of these is not executed well, the environment falls flat or, worse, feels ‘off.’” It’s this level of insight that has made Lisa, her husband Peter and their team at Paper Moon Painting invaluable resources for Sara Malek Barney, the founder and principal at BANDD/DESIGN. She chimes in, “We believe that everyone deserves to live, work and experience life in an aesthetically pleasing space, and having true craftspeople applying paint of the quality Benjamin Moore provides is key to creating that.” As is the breadth of selection. “Benjamin Moore does an excellent job of curating rich, lovely colors, plus providing the greatest selection of whites and off-whites in various undertones,” Lisa says. “They always seem to land on the perfect amount of saturation, ensuring brilliant hues never look like Crayola colors on the wall.” Peter adds his application tip for those bright shades: “Use a gray primer under reds and blues to avoid multiple coats.” bandddesign.com, papermoonpainting.com

LOS ANGELES, CA

TIMOTHY CORRIGAN + BILL SUPLEE

Why do you consider it critical to work with a skilled painting contractor? Timothy: Our projects tend to have beautiful architectural details, wood paneling and plasterwork, which require specialty painting. We also work on historic homes where an understanding of preservation is key.

How do the feature benefits of a paint product influence your specification? Bill: We love Benjamin Moore’s SCUFF-X® for families because it is washable and scrubbable. Low or no-odor formulas like Eco Spec® are desirable for health-conscious clients and those with young children. I also recommend semigloss and eggshell finishes for kitchens and baths, but flat ones for ceilings and matte for walls.

Which colors inspire you the most? Timothy: I am most influenced by the vibrant, saturated colors used in mid-18th-century French design. I like warm shades versus cooler ones in any color, because they make a space feel welcoming. timothy-corrigan.com, pinkpainter.net

ALLISON PALADINO AND ZITA RUDD + CHAD QUIST

Why is your collaborative relationship critical to a project’s success? Allison: It broadens how creative you can be. Recently, we wanted to bleach a mahogany ceiling in an outdoor space and then apply a beige stain to cut the green hue and create a soft shade. It would be challenging, but Chad accomplished it in one try. He is a master of subtle texture!

Describe the impact of paint on interiors. Zita: We’ve been doing a lot of transitional spaces where the walls, moldings and ceilings are the same color but varying finishes. This becomes a clean and serene envelope perfect for showcasing art, which exemplifies the influence paint has on our designs.

What role does paint sheen/finish play?

Chad: Benjamin Moore’s Regal Select Matte is a favorite because it has a very subtle sheen but is almost flat. The way it toys with light gives a home a lovely glow. It can also be scrubbed clean without damage. paladinorudd.com, irawalden.com

TRACY MORRIS + GEORGE FRITZ

A warm taupe, a deep blueberry, a soft blush—out of all the colors under the sun, these three, Tracy Morris says, will always captivate her. The interior designer has a deep appreciation for color’s role in her creations, and construction and paint expert George Fritz has a passion for exceptional paint application. “Paint can transform a ‘blah’ space into something spectacular,” Tracy says. George adds, “And selecting the right paint can make the difference between an easy project and happy client or an extended project and miserable client.” Perhaps it’s no wonder these two have been a dream project team for almost a decade. tracymorrisdesign.com, horizonbuildersinc.net

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL
“ The design journey is a bit of a relay race where we continuously pass the baton back and forth , supporting each other at each stage.”
I N P A R T N E R S H I P W I T H B E N J A M I N M O O R E

EVERICK AND LISA BROWN

+ PETER BUTTENWIESER

How did you three come to work together?

Peter: We went to college together and ultimately found ourselves in the same industry 20 years later.

Share your tips for paint selection. Everick: For a modern feel, Lisa and I like to specify our signature look, which includes painting the trim, doors and baseboard the same color as the wall in a satin or matte finish. In rooms where the ceilings are 8 feet tall or shorter, we choose white or lighter colors in flat finishes to create the illusion of a taller space.

What is your all-time favorite Benjamin Moore product?

Peter: Believe it or not, AURA® in a basic white. Simply put, it works the best for trim, and this is an area that often gets overlooked.

Why do you consider it critical to work with a skilled interior designer? Peter: If the client loves their color selections, they’ll be happy with our work and vice versa. We make the colors look their best, but it’s all about the color for the homeowner. everickbrown.com, certapro.com/westchester

JOAN CRAIG

+ STEVE HESTER

Exactitude and craftsmanship, vision and inspiration —these are the elements that come together in the partnership of Joan Craig and Steve Hester. The designer and painting pro, and their respective teams, have made an art form out of collaboration for more than a decade. Joan knows that color transforms a space, and Steve’s 70-plus skilled painters take the utmost pride in their work. “We want to give our customers a finished product that will last for years to come,” Steve says. And they do, by helping designers like Joan select the perfect formula and finish before applying it beautifully. craigandco.com, hesterdecorating.com

Advice FROM THE Experts

“Use AURA® Bath & Spa matte in the bathroom, especially for deeper colors. I’ve got baths I painted 10-plus years ago that look this formula.” JAMES

“High-gloss ceilings, which have great drama and bounce light take a room to heaven.”

“Always determine the best color for a room by painting a 2-by-2-foot foam board and moving it around the space. It should suit in every patch of light.”

“If you are aiming to create a glowing space with a level-five finish, select an enamel paint that provides that car paint-like look.”
“Deep, saturated hues for the win! Life is too short to live in a sea of white. Make a choice and lean in. If you tire of it (you won’t) you can easily repaint.” MUNROE
“ The level of preparation a surface needs for a perfect application depends on the sheen, and that decision is informed by many factors: lighting, traffic, color and more.” HESTER
“Next to space planning, paint is the most significant effect we can have on an environment.”
TIMOTHY CORRIGAN
“ When chosen well, paint can regulate the mood of a room, making a sunny space feel fresh and cool or an area with minimal windows feel cozy and comfortable.”
PETER THE MOORE A&D COMMUNITY.
“I a m a China White OC-141 fan. We work with a lot of natural materials, and its taupe undertone works amazingly well with wood and stone.”

Art, Now

I recently read that portraits by Barkley L. Hendricks will be featured alongside old masters at The Frick Collection in New York City. Hendricks is the first artist of color to have a solo show at the 87-year-old museum. That an institution presenting European art from the 14th to 19th centuries will be showing work of a contemporary artist whose focus is large-scale portraits of Black Americans—and who was an influential predecessor to the likes of Kehinde Wiley, Amy Sherald, Toyin Ojih Odutola and others—is significant for the art world...and, indeed, for us all.

At this same museum in January 2015, I stood in front of John Singer Sargent’s Lady Agnew of Lochnaw, a painting I studied in my college art history classes. It has had a profound effect on me as both a design editor and an artist. I have my calendar marked to be back at the Frick in Fall 2023 to view Hendrick’s Steve with an equal measure of exuberant anticipation.

Enjoy our art-focused issue. Please support artists and the arts.

FIRST LOOK

“PHILLIP K. SMITH III: 3 PARALLELS”

Can technology inspire an appreciation for nature?

In the case of “3 Parallels,” the site-specific exhibition by Phillip K. Smith III, yes. On view at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) starting October 29, “3 Parallels” will feature a trio of oversized sculptural elements illuminated with changing light patterns and wrapped in mirrored surfaces to reflect the shifting hues. The effect, says Director and Chief Curator Jennifer McCabe, “transports you to a more serene space.” This is especially true if you visit during one of the meditation sessions, sound baths or other healing programs scheduled throughout the exhibition’s life cycle. “We need places to recalibrate and be reminded of the beauty of the simple things in life, such as light,” McCabe says. Smith’s installation is the most significant of the artist and architect’s career, and it carries on SMoCA’s tradition of exploring light and space as established by the inimitable James Turrell. smoca.org

POST MASTER

@FORMFLORAL

WHO: The Phoenix-based florist helmed by owner and “main maker” Malori Maeva.

WHAT: Like its stylish storefront, which occupies a corner of the redesigned Frederick complex in midtown, the arrangements by Form Floral reel you in for a closer look. Unlikely bedfellows appear in every composition, whether that’s in terms of color or plant varietal, but somehow the result always works. Equally inspiring? The sense of community and resiliency in the feed. Case in point is Maeva’s COVIDinspired floral installation at

her home. When a cooler full of roses and greens were rendered obsolete by lockdowns, Maeva turned the loss into a stunning art project.

WHY: Because you need a quick decor fix, a reason to become a plant parent, inspo for your next event or simply a visual reminder that life is indeed beautiful.

IN HER OWN WORDS: “The beauty of flowers as an artistic medium is that every single stem is unique. No matter how many times you make an arrangement, it’s always one of a kind.”

Proving that the best careers take unexpected directions, Chris Matthews started out studying finance but today serves as co-principal of lighting and home automation firm Acoustic Designs Group. The Scottsdale-based company offers state-of-the-art automation services, which transcend convenience to include health. Here, Matthews explores how home wellness automation is changing the world. adgroupaz.com

What is smart-home wellness technology?

Home health company Delos is at the forefront of this technology, and it includes air and water purification filtered at the micron level. Additionally, our Delos showroom features a living wall, which lets you bring nature indoors, along with the added benefit of slight humidity and oxygen. Plus, it waters itself and has its own grow light, so it’s low maintenance!

How did this type of automation become important?

In light of COVID, homeowners want to have the cleanest air and purest water possible. Those aspects are brought into the home for healthy living, especially as people are spending more time indoors.

Which wellness technology should every home have?

The pandemic pushed us inside, and if you’re not going to go outside, you need to bring the outdoors into your living space. A warm, dim light doesn’t cut it anymore, so the LED technology incorporated by Ketra does a lot for bringing the benefits of natural light into the home. You can actually change the color temperature to help your body relax according to your circadian rhythm.

Soon to rise over downtown Phoenix’s entertainment and business district is the new Fairmont Phoenix, a 25-story hotel and residential complex designed in the same spirit of indulgence as the Fairmont flagships in New York and Los Angeles. The Phoenix hotel will include 225 guestrooms and 34 suites, but those interested in experiencing Fairmont’s trademark luxury 24/7 can consider one of the 151 residences, which “will feature spaces that capture abundant light while offering panoramic vistas over the natural and man-made landscape,” explains Crel Vogel, regional manager at real estate sales and marketing firm Polaris Pacific. Designed as urban sanctuaries, one- to three-bedroom residences and 16 penthouses featuring private amenities (lounge, pool, parking) will be available, with presales beginning later this year. fairmontresidencesphoenix.com

A LA CARTE

SANTÉ

If a Pinterest board could come to life, what would it look like? In a word, Santé, the indulgently designed, diet-inclusive restaurant in North Scottsdale. Santé takes its name from the toast for good health in French, and its design is as voluptuous as the menu is restrained. Take, for example, the living moss wall, neon signage, floor-to-ceiling photographic murals and 6-by-6-foot pink feather chandelier.

This delightful mashup of Hollywood Regency and boho design elements was envisioned by the restaurant’s co-owner, Nico Doniele, who really did begin the design as a Pinterest board. The result is accordingly layered and personal. “I wanted to call in my sense of style and have people experience a bit of these places where I’ve been,” Doniele explains. We’ll drink to that! lovesante.com

OPEN HOUSE

STRUCTURES CABINET + DESIGN

This past May, the Tempe-based Structures Cabinet + Design opened its East Valley outpost. Now, it’s time to celebrate. The 3,000-square-foot Mesa showroom will be marking its grand opening this fall with chef demonstrations, music and more. “People are surprised when they walk in,” explains owner Leyda McCurdy. Part of that might be chalked up to the location: The showroom resides in the upscale outdoor Dana Park shopping center where people stroll in after browsing fashion boutiques. The other surprise, of course, is what they find inside. Both the Tempe and Mesa showrooms carry modern, functional and eminently sophisticated cabinetry by the likes of Noblessa, Omega and Waypoint. But where the Tempe location is all cool blacks, whites and grays, the Mesa space turns up the heat with warmer neutrals. The new showroom also features a 22-foot live kitchen replete with a 17-foot island and 48-inch sink with double faucets. And for those embarking on construction projects, there’s a design center in the back where staff can help you create the kitchen, laundry room or entertainment center of your dreams. “We’re hoping to give the East Valley some creative, innovative and functional design that they haven’t seen yet,” McCurdy says. Mission accomplished. structurescabinet.com

THE INSIDER

When architect Erik B. Peterson arrived in Arizona from the Midwest some 20 years ago, the desert issued a siren song he couldn’t resist. There was just something about the light and landscape that coaxed creativity out of him, the same way it had for Frank Lloyd Wright. Also like Wright, Peterson built a reputation for innovative design: He cut his teeth on residential projects, but he’s found himself increasingly drawn to the hospitality sector. His firm recently completed updates on the iconic Arizona Biltmore, which sort of closed the loop for the Taliesintrained Peterson. Here, the architect reflects on contemporary design in the Valley. phxarch.com

What has been the biggest evolution you’ve witnessed in Arizona over the course of your career? There has been a new love for older architecture in Phoenix. If you have anything anywhere in the Valley that has any sort of age to it, it has been snapped up for restaurants or coffee shops.

You worked at Taliesin Architects early on in your career. How, if at all, did that influence your work on the Arizona Biltmore? That really gave me insight into not trying to copy or emulate Frank Lloyd Wright. Rather, I thought if Wright had had access to the materials and technology that we have today, what inspiration would that bring to him? How would he express that? There’s a maturity component to understanding the principles of organic architecture and how they can apply in different settings.

What do you think will be next for contemporary architecture? I think technology will really start to drive the design of residences. Instead of putting solar panels on the roof, for example, they will be the roof. It’s that level of integration to create a healthier home that’s the missing part. We’ve lived the same way for hundreds of years. I think we’re ready for a drastic change in how things are actually done.

LUXURY DECOR BRANDS ARE PUTTING THE SHOW IN SHOWROOMS BY TURNING TO AN ENTIRELY NEW MODEL.

When it came time for Beni Rugs to open a brick-and-mortar outpost, the standard-issue gallery didn’t feel right. So, co-founder Robert Wright opted to do what a rare but emerging coterie of brands have embraced: roll out the welcome mat for clients in a place that would typically have one in the first place. An actual home.

In 2018, the then digital-only company got its start by allowing people to fully customize Moroccan rugs. But a few years later, the time had come to expand to a physical location. “We wanted it to feel like you’re coming over to your friend’s apartment....and oh, by the way, on the floor are rugs from our newest collection,” Wright explains. “It was a fun exercise to

think: ‘Well, why don’t we come up with an apartment in New York that’s the home of our ideal Beni consumer?’” They imagined everything from this fictitious client’s art collection down to the trinkets brought home from their travels. Thus, their new appointment-only Greenwich Village studio in a circa 1900 brownstone on West 9th Street in Manhattan was born.

Other brands embracing the idea that style begins at home include Casa Perfect, Lee Broom, Gabriel & Guillaume and Galerie Philia (the latter of which opened its latest traveling showroom inside a $10 million Chelsea apartment). “We wanted to show that you can not only live with these historical pieces, but also mix them in a very casual way,” says Guillaume

Excoffier, co-founder (with Nancy Gabriel) of Gabriel & Guillaume, which procures everything from Martin Szekely’s 1988 Betty armchairs to a 1950 Italian sofa by Federico Munari. The gallery, featuring rotating exhibitions, is currently ensconced in an appointment-only, twostory residence at 11 West 57th Street in New York City. “We have created a new kind of retail experience—something more exclusive, something more private— like entering into the apartment of a collector,” Gabriel says. It’s no surprise then that companies are seeing this model resonate with consumers, as navigating the sometimes-arduous task of making design choices now seems much easier in a familiar setting.

Beni Rugs worked with stylist Colin King to perfect their townhouse space in New York City’s Greenwich Village (left). In a sleek corner of Gabriel & Guillaume’s Manhattan skyscraper residence, beautiful furnishings mingle with works of art.

AS THE SHAKER MUSEUM GETS A MODERN MAKEOVER, THE INSTITUTIONS’ NEW ARTIST-LED MAKERS’ CIRCLE WEIGHS IN ON THE EVOLVING INFLUENCE OF SHAKER STYLE TODAY.

JOLIE NGO

As the youngest member of the museum’s Makers’ Circle, recent art school graduate Jolie Ngo creates ceramic ‘cyborg-like’ objects and vessels using modern technologies, including 3-D printing and rapid prototyping. A child of the early aughts, her aesthetic was shaped by digital interfaces including Minecraft and The Sims, and she continues to explore the intersection between handmade and automated. “Shaker work is quite the opposite of my own with a focus on simplicity and purpose,” Ngo says. “Their objects lack unnecessary ornamentation and decorative detail.” But, nonetheless, she has come to appreciate this ethos of making. “They believed that mastery of craft was a partnership with tools, materials and process—an idea I hold close within my own work, continuously probing the synergy between what is formed by hand versus technology.” ngojolie.net

LADIES & GENTLEMEN STUDIO

“Iconic Shaker pieces, like chairs and boxes, have always had a pull on us as designers,” explains Ladies & Gentlemen Studio’s Dylan Davis, adding that working with the museum has “been an amazing opportunity to do a deeper dive into their culture.” Davis, who founded his multidisciplinary Brooklyn studio in 2010 with wife Jean Lee, believes historical principles of Shakerism can change how we look at contemporary life. For example, they reimagined one of the Shakers’ most intentionally designed furnishings that centers around a closely held belief: the workstation. The pair’s secretary-style iteration features just the right amount of room for everyday items while allowing them to be concealed at the end of the day ladiesandgentlemenstudio.com

On the Move

KATIE STOUT

When going through the Shaker Museum’s collection, Katie Stout was drawn to colorful, sweet and soft objects— in other words, not the iconic pieces noted for minimalism. As a direct response to a bonnet and cloak she found in the archives, the trail blazing artist created a whimsical chair out of muslin layered with ruffles and ruching. Stout describes the final result as “a silly, frilly duo of cloaked and bonnet-ed chairs joined in a permanent Shaker dance.” And while the contemporary artist is drawn to the group’s “resourcefulness, simple solutions and entrepreneurial genius” she is also interested in the predominance of female makers and the role women played in propelling 19th century craft forward. katiestout.com

Arriving in the United States around 1774, the Shakers were a Utopian sect who created a distinctly new design vernacular. Prioritizing function above all else, they favored simple, pared-down aesthetics that allowed an object’s materiality to shine. The group was also known for championing gender and racial equality, communal living and sustainability. At their peak in the 1900s, thousands of members resided throughout the Northeast, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.

Today, the Shaker Museum in Chatham, New York, continues to tell their story, showcasing the most comprehensive collection of art, furniture, objects and materials in the country—much of which was out of view for the last decade. The museum will soon enter a new iteration, and double in size, as it moves to a 19th-century industrial building within Colombia County, where Selldorf Architects and Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects are heading up interior and exterior renovations respectively. An inaugural Makers’ Circle, consisting of contemporary artists and designers, is collaborating with the museum’s leadership on institutional decisions. As executive director Lacy Schutz notes, “the Shaker Museum continues to convene and engage a community of creatives connected to its material culture and whose work is informed by it today.” shakermuseum.us

As experts in the unique forte of design-build work, Brendan and Jillian Bader and their team at Modern Nest strive to create “the perfect backdrop for families to live and be.” Signature to their work is a passion for balancing natural elements with clean, modern lines— and state-of-the-art amenities.

Ownby Design

PROJECT BY CLAIRE OWNBY

Asked what the key to her style is, Claire Ownby points to timelessness and a penchant for the “desert minimal modern” aesthetic. Alongside her team at Ownby Design, she aims to deliver a flawless product that is a true reflection of the client’s vision. With a commitment to detail and budget-saving efficiency, the firm has become one of the most beloved in Arizona.

PHX ARCHITECTURE

As inspirational surroundings go, Erik Peterson has certainly never had the short end of the stick. After being raised in Chicago, widely considered one of the greatest architecture cities in the world, it is perhaps little wonder that he later entered into the profession. Today, as the president of PHX Architecture, he enjoys the beauty of the firm’s two home cities, Scottsdale and Beverly Hills, as well. It’s quite the suite of fountains from which to pull influence. That variety is a good thing, because Peterson and team’s project lineup

is just as diverse. From luxury residences and private golf clubhouses to boutique resorts and specialty restaurants, they’ve dipped toes in it all. “I would love to design sets for the globe’s greatest opera houses.”

In fact, if he weren’t in his current profession, that is what Peterson says he would be doing. But with the celebration of PHX Architecture’s 20th anniversary this year, his real focus is on honoring the legacy with new developments that are just as exciting as what came before. “We continue to refine our specialized approach to the bespoke luxury design typology.”

ON A PERSONAL NOTE

Share five social media accounts you turn to for inspiration.

@designleadershipnetwork, @design_interior_homes, @luxuryworldtraveler, @amazing.architecture and @megacribs on Instagram.

List three design rules you work by and three of your design pet peeves.

The rules are no more than three materials, odd always over even and regional use of materials and design techniques. The pet peeves are merging styles that don’t belong, buildings that don’t have regional context and labeling “transitional” design.

What’s on your desk?

My computer, a family photo, a Frank Lloyd Wright quote and tons of magazines I’ve been meaning to read!

Up to this point, what do you feel has been your greatest success?

To withstand a volatile market for 20-plus years and not only stay in business but grow the business and brand nationally.

What’s next for the firm?

To continue to grow our brand on a national scale is our main focus over the next five years.

A SEASONED STONE PURVEYOR’S NEXT MOVE: A FRESH LOOK + NEW PRODUCTS

From a front façade to a fireplace design or a spalike bathroom wall, stone plays an integral role in creating exterior and interior places that feel both sturdy and stylish. For decades, Eldorado Stone has been inviting architects, designers, builders and homeowners alike to explore the possibilities as they seek that marriage of beauty and function. With a wide range of premium stone profiles and a second-to-none approach to the development and application of trend-leading color palettes, the company has become a beloved stone resource.

And now, it’s entering a new chapter …

“Through a brand refresh and novel product offerings, our goal is to continue to promote a lifestyle-centric perspective and emphasize how stone can play a key role in creating spaces where memories are made and design influences the everyday moments of life,” says Sarah Lograsso, Eldorado Stone’s director of marketing and product design. “We want to help people curate the perfect backdrop for every space.”

STURDY + STYLISH 800.925.1491 | ELDORADOSTONE.COM | ELDORADOSTONE I N P A R T N E R S H I P W I T H E L D O R A D O S T O N E

THE START OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL™

“With respect to new product development, we look carefully at the influence of people’s lifestyles on architecture and design, and how the comprehensive purpose of everyday environments will impact those who inhabit them in a very practical way,” Lograsso says. “We look to where a client chooses to spend time and what draws them into that space. Is it a tranquil and serene retreat for unwinding at the end of the day? Or is it the hustle and bustle of a lively kitchen for family gatherings? Perhaps a curated display of adventures traveled? Any of those elements can spark inspiration and play an integral role in shaping beautiful spaces.”

Left The unique colorway and texture of Latigo TundraBrick® adds a dash of rustic allure in the kitchen as a bold “bricksplash.”

Opposite Indoors or out, Loire Valley™ RoughCut® pairs brilliantly with other natural elements for the perfect expression of organic luxury.

“Every home should be uniquely designed for the people living in it, especially with respect to evoking emotion and forming lifelong memories. Adding textural touches is a wonderful way to set a tone for each space.”

For their freshman debut, The High Key’s Relief collection explores curvaceous shapes as is evident in the Glove Couch. Founder and creative director John Vieweg first designs pieces using 3D software, after which a network of manufacturers build the designs to exact renderings. Vieweg contemplated the idea of ‘relief’ throughout the design process: from the physical relief of sitting on a sofa, to the way in which reliefs were historically made by carving away at materials—a method employed on the sofa’s interior foam body to achieve its final construction. thehighkey.design

Bold Moves

FROM EYE-CATCHING COLORS TO A MÉLANGE OF PATTERNS, TODAY’S KITCHENS AND BATHS PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS.

Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson, the design duo behind Drake/Anderson, are known for their stylish schemes and a penchant for producing luxurious, impactful spaces. So, when their clients—a couple who had just purchased an apartment in a new Manhattan building—wanted to gut their kitchen in favor of injecting some personality and color, the designers were more than happy to oblige. “We landed on a beautiful blue for the cabinetry, which looks rich, sophisticated and playful,” Anderson says of the chosen hue: Benjamin Moore’s Vermont Slate. The painted custom cabinetry also cam ouflages all appliances and even houses a semi-walk-in pantry and breakfast bar. “The color was the biggest point of departure, and the marble came second,” Anderson continues. “The client loves interesting stones, and this room has three! The Oyster White marble on the countertops and backsplash is highly gestured with organic veining, while the White Thassos and Blue de Savoie marbles on the floor are laid in a geometric Mondrian-style pattern but they all marry together wonderfully.” Another focal point is the plush L-shape banquette, which is built into the back of the peninsula, saving valuable square footage and giving the room a nice sense of movement. This informal dining nook is visually connected to the prep area with a large lighting piece from Apparatus overhead while artwork by Melinda Hackett enlivens the entire space. “This kitchen isn’t huge,” Anderson says, “but it certainly feels dynamic.” drakeanderson.com

Drake/Anderson filled this Manhattan kitchen with striking touches, like custom cabinetry in Benjamin Moore’s Vermont Slate, Oyster White marble countertops, Mondrian-esque stone flooring, artwork by Melinda Hackett and an Apparatus light fixture.

To satiate the same client’s love of color and Bisazza tile, Drake/Anderson enveloped a powder bath located off the office in a mesmerizing gradient mosaic. “The upper half almost recalls windows in a skyscraper,” Jamie Drake says. Since the design of the adjacent workspace is fun and whimsical, the same feeling was carried into the bathroom

with a playful all-over tile arrangement. Drake notes that, “the clean, contemporary floating vanity doesn’t compete with the surroundings, but its curved shape adds another layer of visual interest.” A benefit of sheathing every surface in tile? “It melts the perimeters of the room, making it appear larger,” Drake explains. drakeanderson.com

In this Upper West Side bath designed by Drake/Anderson, a custom vanity topped with Calacatta Turquoise marble complements Bisazza mosaic tiles. Sconces from Circa Lighting flank a mirror from Mirror Home.

FLORAL FAN TASY

For his third collaboration with Ann Sacks, designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard embraced his love of historic fabrics. The new Eutopia line of glass mosaics features five botanical patterns—three of which are based on wallcovering motifs previously conceived by Bullard, including Sultan’s Garden (shown)—in 49 custom shades. “This collection was born out of my passion for East-Indian and Middle-European textiles,” Bullard says, “which often contain magical patterns depicting the Tree of Life and Mughal flowers.” annsacks.com

BLUE CRUSH

For a residence in Rye, New York, designer Shannon Murray Petruzello of Shannon Murray Interiors envisioned a glamorous powder room inspired by her client’s favorite color.

“This home was originally built in the 1980s, so we did a full renovation of the first floor— including this existing powder room—in order to modernize it for a young family,” explains Murray Petruzello, who paired a cool marbleized wallpaper by Schumacher with Benjamin Moore’s Cable Knit Sweater on the remaining walls.

What did the client want for this powder room? The only mandate was to incorporate blue, so we gave this bath a ‘wow’ factor using many shades of the vibrant hue. I really enjoy creating one-of-a-kind powder rooms—they are truly the best space to do something out of the ordinary.

Talk to us about the brass accents. We carried the subtle gold shimmer in the wallpaper through to the modern brushed-brass Kohler sink fi xtures. Lucky for us, the client already had the metallic mirror from her previous home, and it worked perfectly with the round sconce from Arteriors.

What an interesting vanity! The custom L-shape vanity was purely an aesthetic choice. The client didn’t have a need for storage below, which allowed us to do something a bit di erent with the design. For the wallpaper installation, we mimicked the form of the vanity and extended it from one accent wall up to the ceiling. shannonmurrayinteriors.com

MODERN HISTORY

A Brooklynite by way of Haiti, Gardy St. Fleur built his practice showing beginner collectors the ropes—and joys—of the art world. As business grew, he drilled down on introducing emerging, as well as historically overlooked, talents to budding collectors, adding mentorship and management of working artists along the way. saintfleur.com

Nightstand companion: Tell Them I Said No by Martin Herbert—a collection of essays by artists, including David Hammons (a hero of mine), who were creating for the purpose of transaction but ultimately retreated from the art world. Unforgettable institution: Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland, which was started by a Swiss dealer couple with an incredible modern art collection. The building was designed by Renzo Piano—it’s very special. Ar tists to watch: Rebecca Ness, Delphine Desane, Cindy Ji Hye Kim, Chibuike Uzoma and Vamba Bility. Don’t miss: The Independent Fair in New York this September, which will focus on overlooked 20 th century artists. Paul Claude Gardère, the first Haitian artist in residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem, will be on view—I’m excited about that. Next frontier: Starting a monthly dinner series where artists, clients and board members can discuss changes that need to be made at the institutional level.

SOCIAL STUDIES

Illa Gaunt brings a masters in art history and a post-graduate diploma in modern and contemporary art from Christie’s Education in London to her Houston-based boutique advisory. Keen to share her passions, she transformed her Instagram account (@_ig_art) into a platform for accessible arts education. illagauntart.com

Making headlines: The art world is bonkers right now with long waiting lists for new works, sold-out shows and record-breaking auction prices. See: Louise Bourgeois’ Spider sold for $40 million at Art Basel and Andy Warhol’s Marilyn sold last May for $195 million, breaking auction records for an American artist. Looking forward: Amanda Baldwin’s vibrant landscapes are on my radar. I’m excited about her upcoming show at Hesse Flatow in New York City. Hot spot: Berlin has amazing contemporary galleries like Soy Capitán and Wentrup. Sunday school: In 2019, I began presenting Sunday art history lessons on Instagram Live and developed a sizable following during the pandemic. Topics have ranged from art movements like Dada, to the intellectual explosion that took place at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center, to deeper dives into artists like Ruth Asawa. Treasure trove: I find new talent through critical reviews and art fairs like NADA Miami that focus on younger galleries and emerging artists. Highlight reel: Amoako

Boafo: Soul of Black Folks at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (on view through early October) is a gorgeous show. The way he approaches portraiture with both spirit and brush, as well as his signature finger painting, is inspiring. Collector’s mantra: Buy what you love. The intrigue and attraction should feel instinctual.

ARTS EVOLUTION

Anchored in New York with satellite locations in the American West and overseas, the Dia Art Foundation is a force in the nonprofit space. For Humberto Moro—newly-appointed deputy director of program—evolving exhibitions, publications and public engagement is intrinsically linked to telling an even more inclusive history of art. diaart.org

Inspiration fix: One of the realms where truly original ideas are born is science fiction, and that is most of what I recreationally read these days. Ted Chiang and Liu Cixin are authors that I come back to. Arts destination: The vibrancy and creative freedom of Mexico City are rare—there’s always something unexpected. Hot topic: One of the most important subjects being discussed in the world at large, is the essential right to project different realities and possible futures. I’ve seen so many resonances with this idea. One example is the Venice Biennale, titled The Milk of Dreams curated by Cecilia Alemani, which, from specific art history perimeters, questions the agency of imagination. Pièce de résistance: Few things compare to The Lightning Field (1977) by Walter De Maria—a land art work in New Mexico in the Dia’s collection. De Maria used to say that every great artwork should have at least 10 meanings, and the myriad of ideas that can be interconnected to this piece is almost unfathomable. The way in which one experiences it, and what one can obtain from that experience, speaks directly about what we do at Dia.

RAINBOW CONNECTION

When Chelsea Neman Nassib founded Tappan Collective 10 years ago, online-native galleries were a novelty. Fast forward to 2020 and the platform, thanks to its investment in producing artist studio visits and profiles for their website, found itself precociously equipped to connect stories with collectors in a digital world. tappancollective.com

New currency: With the rise of NFT’s, the art world has even more accessible paths for all. We sell NFT COAs, which allow us to include a contract in the sale encompassing royalties, so that every time the artwork trades, the artist makes 10 percent. This can be life-changing because artists don’t make a percentage of secondary sales, which is where prices often make headlines. Gallery crush: Del Vaz Projects by Jay Ezra Nayssan. Jay operates a galleryfarmstead from his home in Santa Monica. There’s also an apothecary that sells everything from Persian tea to CBD lavender salve. It’s wonderful to see curators bringing a more artful approach to retail and vice-versa. One to watch: Lisa Dengler. We just signed her and are so excited about her paintings and stone sculptures. On deck: Opening our first physical gallery. I want it to be a place that anyone can walk into and find something—almost like a vinyl store.

GREATER GOOD

Frustrated by the quality of studio space in New York City, artist Stef Halmos saw an opportunity to develop her dream resource. She set her sights on three historic mills in the Hudson Valley, converting them into Foreland: a vibrant arts campus spanning galleries, studios, collective workspace, public programming and event spaces—all built to create agency for working artists. forelandcatskill.com; stefhalmos.com

Life-changing institution: The Noguchi Museum in Queens. It taught me how to sit quietly and take a long look. Coming up: This spring, we’re hosting an event curated by Art Handler. I can’t reveal too much, only that it’s a multi-event experience not to be missed! We’re also slated to have a show by New York City’s Bortolami Gallery featuring Robert Bordo.

Design crush: Artist duo Kristen Wentrcek and Andrew Zebulon. I’ve never seen such high level of craft meet fearlessness and yet somehow remain functional. My wife and I own several of their pieces and admire them daily.

Fantasy acquisitions: Anything ever made by Carrie Mae Weems! If I could extend the spree, I’d buy a Carlton bookcase by Ettore S ottsass, a Cecily Brown painting, a Sam Moyer sculpture and a large wall piece by this little-known artist named Sol LeWitt. Dreaming big: I’d love to expand this concept, potentially in partnership with institutions. It’s also my hope that my team continue to spearhead consistent public programming that’s accessible to people of every age, color and educational background.

Donovan Johnson joined Bill Lowe Gallery 10 years ago, where he gracefully ascended the ranks. Upon the passing of his beloved mentor, for which the gallery is named, last December, Johnson was appointed executive director, tasked with ushering the Atlanta institution into its next chapter. lowegallery.com

On deck: The first show scheduled for next year is called Alchemy and features Black artists from around the United States, including Thornton Dial, Wifredo Lam and Emma Amos. It’s a group show around this idea that in marginalized communities, there’s an innate call to take whatever you have and turn it into something that transcends its first state of being. Virtual reality: During the pandemic, galleries introduced 3-D viewing rooms. This technology had been around too long for us to be suffering from the 2-D aspects of photography! Now anyone can experience sculpture in 3D; you can even see surveys of the Whitney Biennial on YouTube. It’s a beautiful thing about the world we live in. Arresting artist: Ilídio Candja Candja, who was born in Mozambique around the time they won their independence from Portugal. He paints these beautiful abstractions around the influences of colonization. Lasting impression: The exhibition What is Left Unspoken, Love at Atlanta’s High Museum achieved true resonance. Fair game: Atlanta is 49 percent black. Generally speaking, art in the South is so much more diverse than what is currently being seen. Our programming moving forward will be reflective of this.

RISING TIDE

Los Angeles-based advisor Nancy Gamboa specializes in developing private collections of cultural significance. Enhancing this pillar, she founded Botanica Fine Art, a digital initiative that promotes visibility for Latinx artists. nancyagamboa.com; botanica-fine-art.com

Industry buzz: There’s been a lot of talk about works by young artists reaching upwards of six figures privately and at auction. Three factors contributed to this phenomenon: newly-created crypto wealth, which added diverse buyers to the market, trillions in American dollars printed and a lack of primary access to work for new collectors. Fall happenings: September 2 marks the first installment of the Frieze Art Fair in Seoul. I’m excited to see what happens when the art world meets the sophistication of South Korea’s artists, institutions and collectors. Closer to home, the September opening of Hauser & Wirth in West Hollywood will be a treat for Angelenos. Buoyed by: The increased presence of Latinx, AAPI and BIPOC run galleries, including Commonwealth and Council (LA), Regular Normal (NYC), LaPau (LA), Calderón (NYC), Mariane Ibrahim (Chicago), Sow & Tailor (LA), Make Room (LA) and Estrella (NYC). Collecting 101: With so much art in the world, working around themes of identity, geography, medium, or a combination of three, can help focus decision-making while creating depth.

One way is to those who are coming up innovative results. Enter, Desert Foothills Landscape. The Cave Creek, Arizona, company has been a local fixture since 1990, but its work has evolved with the growing possibilities. “We are always looking for outside-the-box ways to wow our clients, their neighbors and their guests,” says Jake Plocher, Desert Foothills’ vice president of sales and lead designer. “We do this using unique new plant materials, as well as varieties of hardscape materials, and innovative fire and water feature designs.” If the goal has been to leave an impression, they’ve succeeded. Desert Foothills’ layered, natural-looking approach has been a signature of high-end homes in the area. Today, although they have evolved to include more minimalistic and contemporary methods, that successful technique remains a local favorite for traditional-style homes.

STEPS TO STAYCATION

“For years, our primary focus has been landscape with small hints of hardscape sprinkled in,” Plocher says. “But, when the pandemic hit, many clients wanted to create their own stay-at-home resort oasis, including full outdoor kitchens and multiple entertaining areas complete with fire pits, fireplaces, water features and more.” Working closely with the homeowners to bring their visions to life, the DFL team integrates it all seamlessly with breathtaking landscaping for an all-encompassing alfresco experience.

FORWARD MOTION

Asked to reveal what is next for the Desert Foothills Landscape team, Plocher points to an array of categories in which they plan to grow. “We are working with cutting-edge, green alternative concrete materials for pools, water and fire features and even full-scale three-dimensionalprinted structures.”

INFLUENCES + AESTHETICS

Eva Higby reveals some recent inspirations and her passion for sharing her groundbreaking designs.

• Talk about industry leaders who inspire you. In the past year, I have been most inspired by a book I read on neuroesthetics titled Beauty, Neuroscience & Architecture by Don Ruggles. It was so impactful that I reached out to the author directly and he was kind enough to share additional research and writings on the subject. I am currently reading The Aesthetic Brain by Anjan Chatterjee, which sheds light on how we evolved to desire beauty and enjoy art.

Over the past few years, the relationship between healthy living and the home has become clearer than ever before. For many, their homes have become a sanctuary worthy of investment. Eva Higby is leading the conversation in design for well-being. “Research has shown that our homes have a profound impact on our health and that beauty is a vital ingredient for creating pleasure, reducing stress and improving health,” Higby says.

“Crafting a beautiful home isn’t a frivolous endeavor—it’s essential to our well-being.” When people hear the words “healthy home” they often picture a neutral, minimalist space. Instead, Higby embraces what she calls the “authentic home,” tailoring spaces to each client’s goals, needs and lifestyle. No matter the client, the authentic home celebrates one’s personal style, while embracing warm and nourishing fabrics and finishes in delightful colors and patterns. 480.993.7190

• What is the best way to follow your work? We love social media, particularly Instagram. While it’s a great place to share our work and inspire others, our favorite aspect of it is the community we are building, filled with designers, design enthusiasts and homeowners who are passionate about creating beauty and designing for a healthy lifestyle.

THE AUTHENTIC HOME

Even with all its nuances and necessary know-how, design and building are like any other trades in that communication is vital to success. Homeowners, realizing the multitudes who play a role in shaping their spaces, are wise to select a team who can streamline communication on their behalf. Kaitlyn Wolfe, founder of Iconic Design + Build, built her firm with this in mind—and a desire to fulfill her passion for transforming spaces, from start to finish.

“The process, skills and knowledge behind interiors and construction are so different from one another,” Wolfe says. “Doing both is what makes us unique. We are able to manage the whole process for our clients, taking a huge weight off their shoulders.” As the studio’s principal designer and general contractor, Wolfe takes a hands-on approach at every stage, lending her signature aesthetic—a mix of styles with an organic desert feel—throughout.

INSIDE +OUT

Kaitlyn Wolfe shares her secret ingredients for making each project a masterpiece.

• What inspires your designs?

I find most of my inspiration in nature. I absolutely love to travel and spend time outside and have found that the more time I spend in nature, the more I allow space in my brain for new creative projects. Because of this, we incorporate a lot of natural materials and color palettes into our work.

• What sets Iconic Design + Build apart?

The most common feedback I receive is that our work feels fresh and new. All the cabinetry we design in-house is completely custom and we also design a ton of custom furniture and lighting for our projects. This allows us to put that Iconic look and feel into every space. We also value sustainability and love incorporating vintage pieces into our designs.

AN A+ CAREER

There are many paths to a career in interior design. For most, compiling an impressive portfolio, a steady stream of clients and a solid reputation is enough to earn the title. But for Janet Brooks, the rite of passage was passing the 16-hour NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) exam, which earns the participant the right to be called a Professional Member of the American Society of Interior Designers, setting them apart in the industry. The distinction has led Brooks to rewarding projects with discerning, high-end clientele who seek out proven professionals to trust with the design of their homes.

“Over the years, my designs have been described as ‘elegant, comfortable, calming, naturalistic, personal, versatile.’ I am happy to embrace these descriptions and o er my clients rich, timeless environments!”

Top This pool house has walls that open on three sides and features everything needed for poolside entertaining. Bottom Honey vein cut travertine walls and floors frame this stunning indoor-outdoor space in a resort-style backyard.

With so many geographical influences at play, Brooks mastered the skill of mixing styles in a refined, cohesive and distinct way—earning her an outstanding reputation and numerous awards.

Artists commonly find inspiration in travel. It allows them to explore styles, methods and skills outside of their routine and then layer these newfound perspectives into their work while maintaining their unique signature. Interior designer Janet Brooks, ASID, is very intentional in this practice. “I keep my focus rooted in the traditional use of natural materials, handwrought craftsmanship and enduring designs,” she says. “I find that no matter what part

GRIT AND GLORY

A groundbreaker can prove themselves in any number of ways. For Jay Reitz, the formula is equal parts innovation and determination. “Being a groundbreaker is really about tapping into something that hasn’t been seen before,” he says. “The ground that has never been disturbed, with all its hidden obstacles, requires work, a lot of thought and— the hardest part—taking action. Everyone has ideas, but a select few step up and put t heir energy into doing the work.”

One of the great challenges in new construction is making sure each team, from architects and builders to designers and landscapers, are on the same page. Collaboration is at the nexus of creating the most unique and beautiful spaces. Jay Reitz, owner of Reitz Builders, embraces this ideal in each of his projects. “Because of my background in art and design, I appreciate the design side of the build and the architect’s point of view,” Reitz says. “We work hard at not getting in the way, because we value beauty. When we allow the architect to explore all of the materials that they want to use, we break new ground in big and small ways.” Reitz also brings his design eye to the construction side of projects. “The emerging curve of design is so exciting, so our goal is to connect with forward-thinkers. Working with other groundbreakers enables us to push the limits of what we do and how we do it.”

Like others in the design industry, Reitz Builders utilizes social media to grow their business and provide a window into their company. “At its best, social media allows us to throw open the doors of our shops, job sites and office,” Reitz shares. “We’re proud of the quality of our team, top-shelf craftsmanship, customer service and business ethic, which we are happy to share with the online community.”

Top Soaring ceilings and paneless windows allow natural light to flood this great room, accentuating the elegant furniture and finishes. Bottom Mixed materials, modular shapes and varied rooflines give this sophisticated home the ultimate “wow” factor.

“Although there are new materials and products to integrate into our designs and incorporate into our clients’ homes, the basic tenets of good design have not changed since the first architects created their first dwellings,” Robinette shares. These include

• Firmness: The foundation and building blocks of any well-designed, high-quality home.

• Commodity: Homes that are highly functional and responsive to their settings and surrounding environment.

• Delight: Visually appealing designs that inspire people to live their best lives and create lasting memories.

Our home designs are rooted in eco-conscious design, yet do not compromise when it comes to luxury and livability.” She craft their personal spaces with a focus on the well-being and health of while also taking into consideration the health of the planet when making home design choices. Shively adds, “Each project has a different style that reflects the owner’s personal taste, and good choices for people are also generally good for the planet.” DESIGN

GREEN HOME INSPIRATION

Shively shared the top three sustainability-minded individuals that have inspired her over the years to design in a beautiful way that is also healthy and eco-conscious.

• Edward Mazria:

“One of the first people to really impress upon me the environmental impacts of the construction industry was Mazria, who I heard speak at a symposium. After that, I knew I had to approach design in a thoughtful and considered way.”

• Sarah Susanka:

“Her book, The Not So Big House, influenced me to design with quality over quantity— making good design a result of the promise of how to live better.”

• Joe Zazeera:

“He was an early, local connection of mine that inspired me to really develop the indoor air quality of my design work, using live plants and plant walls to enhance a home’s connection to nature, while also cleaning out toxins and pollutants naturally.”

There looking an architect: level and quality of work. One factor that the variety of projects in the firm’s portfolio.

Mark Tate, principal of Tate Studio Architects, began his career by designing clubhouses making the transition to residential architecture. This background has given Tate a broader point of view, with an eye for amenities and features that homeowners love. “Good design is not about a specific style, it’s about creating something lasting and timeless,” Tate says. “It’s about crafting spaces that enhance the lives of the people who live in them, while pushing the envelope of form, function, aesthetics and livability.” Now more than ever, Tate’s background in building community spaces has allowed him to make each home more flexible and multipurpose.

DIGITAL CONNECTION

Mark Tate has been in the industry long enough to see the impact of working in an increasingly digital world. Thankfully for Tate, when he founded his studio in 2007, technology was on his side. “In the earlier years of my career, access to projects was largely driven by who you knew,” he shares. “The internet leveled the playing field and provided designers with direct access to potential clients based on merit alone.” Tate describes this change as a “major paradigm shift” which seriously benefited his career. “Once we completed a handful of projects and got them up on our website, we were able to gain greater notoriety.” Tate also loves taking advantage of the wealth of inspiration available across the web. His favorite accounts on social media are those of artists, and Tate enjoys following the work of artists working in formats as varied as glass-blowing, landscape architecture and woodworking.

Simple, organic materials belie the complexity of a modernist dwelling.

Desert Jewel
L U X E S O U R C E C O M 219

It’s said that iron sharpens iron, and that was certainly the case when architect C.P. Drewett assembled a seasoned team—interior designer David Michael Miller, builder Jeremy Meek and landscape designer Jeff Berghoff—to create a sprawling compound on more than 200 saguaro-studded acres in the Sonoran Desert.

The owners envisioned a resort-like space where they could host family and friends as well as philanthropic events. “Not all projects are created equal,” Drewett says, noting this one offered a site unparalleled in its beauty, committed clients and an ambitious, often exacting, scope. “It was a remarkable design experience.”

Rather than compete with the spectacular surroundings, which Drewett compares to a state park, he selected a pared-down palette of four materials: Sirewall—a type of rammed earth using a mix of local soils; mill-scale steel, which features a blue-black surface finish resulting from oxidation; sleek concrete; and a warm mix of woods. “It’s very peaceful, and there’s not a lot of visual chatter,” he says. “The Sirewall feels indigenous and gives the residence a sense of place and belonging, like it’s growing up and out of the site.”

The rammed earth walls were built in advance of the slabs, standing like ancient monoliths until the structures slowly took shape. Hidden inside those walls are light switches, wires, conduits and pipes, which, unlike with conventional construction, cannot be moved once installed. It’s a challenge that requires careful attention to detail, says Meek, noting all the mechanicals and wiring must be precisely placed. “It takes extra effort and attention to complete, but it’s well worth the aesthetic,” he explains. “It’s truly a jewel of the Southwest.”

The buildings include a multicar garage that harbors an enviable collection of classic automobiles, a guest house, a wellness center and a pavilion-like abode with a cantilevered roof, clerestories, and expansive metal windows and doors that open to a series of outdoor areas designed by Berghoff. “Even though it’s heavily grounded, it feels sort of like it’s floating, open and fully transparent,” Drewett notes. The materials pierce the boundary between inside and out,

further blurring the distinction. “The house lives very exquisitely,” Berghoff adds. “Your eye just goes for miles and miles to the horizon.”

Just as Drewett deferred to the natural surroundings, Miller deliberately selected a muted interior palette with a mix of modern furnishings and lighting that allow the architecture to shine. For example, both the custom intersecting rectangular pendants over the Bulthaup kitchen and the coarsely sawn white oak shell he designed to surround the sleek white cabinetry play off the exposed mill-scale steel beams throughout. “I wanted it to feel classic, mellow and rich without making a bunch of clever moves,” he says.

Wool-and-silk area rugs atop the concrete floors establish a cozy milieu, anchoring a series of distinct conversation zones that flow into one another. In the main living area, a low-slung sectional and a pair of contemporary chairs surround a tall, steel-clad fireplace—one of several throughout—that takes advantage of the soaring ceilings. And in the media area, tineo veneer panels atop the rammed earth walls create the sense of a lower ceiling. “I wanted the house to have some intimacy,” Miller explains.

Not to mention drama. A large-scale painting by Doug and Mike Starn that takes up nearly an entire wall enlivens the dining room, which features clerestory windows and walls of glass doors on either side. It’s a stunning backdrop for a 17-foot-long walnut dining table surrounded by 14 leather chairs. “It brings nature into the residence in an electric and exciting way,” the designer says.

After dinner, it’s easy to imagine conversation flowing over to the bar, overlooking the pool and mountains in the distance. Sporting a wood base with a backlit laminated wire-meshed glass apron, “it glows in this subtle way that’s very sexy,” Miller explains. Distinguished by leather panels with a bronze reveal, the office door also fits that description—one of the many doors Miller designed throughout. Just outside, a placid pond surrounded by cacti and ironwood trees creates a welcome oasis during the strong desert heat.

The same could be said of the entire compound. “It is a quiet sanctuary that communicates really well with the landscape,” Drewett says. “Ultimately, I wanted it to be historic.”

Interior Design: Britany Simon, Britany Simon Design House

W hen you are a professional baseball player constantly on the road, home is wherever your family is. That’s why one close-knit Arizona couple so treasured traveling with their two young children in tow, following the husband’s major league games around the country. But after years of adventures across America’s iconic ballparks, the family longed to plant deeper roots in their native state. “We wanted our home to become the hub for our families, where everyone could be together,” the wife

Theyshares.already

loved so much of their newly constructed house in Tempe, with its rotunda entryway, arched windows and tall ceilings. But the space lacked those tangible and intangible layers that give residences a sense of belonging. “They needed to experience that welcoming feeling right when you walk in,” says interior designer Britany Simon, whom the family recruited to help make this dwelling completely their own.

The most important thing to the couple was a “family vibe,” the wife says. “I wanted it to be elevated, but also homey.” Simon’s first step in this balance was ensuring the furniture worked with the architectural details. To anchor the round entrance hall, for example, Simon chose a hefty concrete pedestal table and fluted stool in statuary white, echoing the space’s shapely outlines. Veins of glamour also run through the special occasion areas, “which we made more polished—literally— by adding metals and mirrors,” she notes. Stainless steel chairs in the dining room as well as a glossy velvet tufted sofa and oversize mirror in the living room infuse the abode with luxurious touches.

For more informal areas, like the family room and breakfast nook, Simon favored streamlined versions of classic shapes to “achieve that mix of modern and traditional,” the designer explains. But she incorporated understated textures for a more relaxed atmosphere, such as the deepseated sectional covered in nubby bouclé and the custom oversize coffee table made from salvaged Douglas fir. Those finishes “really ground the space in warmth,” she says. Swivel armchairs and ottomans also offer dynamic seating options,

adaptable for both quiet family nights and large weekend gatherings with friends. “In our projects, we always like to include pieces that can be easily moved around wherever an extra person needs to join a conversation,” Simon notes.

Though the clients were open to wandering outside their comfort zone, they did have one major request: “They wanted a really quiet color palette, so the spaces would feel airy,” Simon says. The muted tones marked a notable departure for her team, known for their bold strokes of color.

“But we liked the challenge,” the designer adds. “We kept everything fairly light, with creams, whites, taupes and beiges throughout.” The lone exceptions were reserved for personal gestures, like the framed sports uniforms in the media room, including the couple’s letterman jackets from their early days as high school sweethearts. Of course, rooms in varying shades of white don’t naturally seem child-friendly, but Simon focused on integrating durable performance-quality textiles, weathered woods and hardy metals so “they could live in their home without feeling like it’s a burden,” she says.

Away from these central gathering areas, Simon made sure to cultivate more private, personal niches. Layered in mirrored finishes, velvet throws and lush drapes, the main bedroom “feels like a retreat,” the wife notes. “I go in there and I feel at peace.” The couple particularly enjoys brief moments of quiet in the bedroom’s sitting area, which showcases a curvaceous loveseat “that seems almost made for that space,” the designer says. Meanwhile, the children claim their own domain in the whimsical playroom, where Simon commissioned a handpainted tree mural, reinforced climbing wall, and custom dollhouse mimicking the dwelling’s colors and textures. “The wife always talks about how much the kids miss that space when they’re away,” Simon shares. “It’s one of the first places they run to when they come home.”

The designer never lost sight of the fact that the clients would frequently leave this house for long sojourns. Distance would only concentrate their longing for home and deepen that precious moment of return as they reunite with family and friends. “And that’s my favorite part,” Simon says. “It’s so rewarding to know that you’re creating spaces that are not only functional, but also make them feel good and represent who they are.”

Artistic

Sara Hubbs transforms packaging materials into objects of singular beauty.

L U X E S O U R C E C O M238

Like many new parents, Tucsonbased Sara Hubbs was shocked by the plethora of plastic products that invaded her home when her daughter was born 10 years ago. But Hubbs—who has a BFA in painting and an MFA in visual art—was struck by the strange beauty of the packaging and how the clear, vacuum-formed plastic shells retained the ghostlike shapes of, say, a toy castle or Hello Kitty doll.

“The shells reminded me of little abstract readymades,” the artist muses, alluding to Marcel Duchamp’s term for mass-produced objects that assume artistic importance outside of their original context. “I wanted to find a way to use Hubbs’them.”evocative, biomorphic glass creations are born from this detritus. The artist first builds a mold by joining

the shells together with a thick layer of plaster gauze. Once set, she pulls out the plastic and blows molten glass into the mold, which cools slowly in an annealer. After removing the plaster, Hubbs carves, sands and refines the glass surface, sometimes using stickers and stencils to create a contrast between matte and shiny. The resulting sculptures are at once beautiful as objects and vessels of meaning— reflecting upon everything from childhood and memory to love and loss.

Take Las Fashionistas Body 4 Lyfe . Sitting atop two gangly rebar legs, the glass form was molded from Barbie Fashionista packaging (foraged by Hubbs at birthday parties) and embossed with the tagline “Body 4 Lyfe.” With a few spare details, Hubbs captures a young girl on the cusp of adolescence—at once gawky and bold, as if assuming a model’s exaggerated stance. Both poignant and prescient, the work underscores the ways in which

girls are sexualized at a young age through seemingly innocuous toys.

Hubbs’ exploration of discarded materials isn’t limited to glass pieces. Her works on paper begin with the printed portions of said foraged packaging, manipulated in some way—cut, sanded or the like—and then scanned into her computer. Printing the image repeatedly until the cartridges run out and the color changes, she then pieces the sheets of paper together with adhesive tape or—more recently—gel medium and acrylic paint that allow her to create a three-dimensional shape.

“I love how the details become fuzzy and faded, and the packaging becomes abstracted,” she says of the process.

“It’s no longer associated with a specific product, but rather a design element.”

For Hubbs, there is meaning to be mined from what most of us consider garbage. “We all crave beauty in our lives,” the artist says. “I just happen to find it in unusual places.”

Sara Hubbs explores discarded materials through both glass and paper mediums. Paper works such as Supernumary: Add & Subtract (opposite, left) and LOLOLOL (below) begin with multiple copies of printed packaging stuck together with an adhesive such as gel medium.

Architecture: Dale Gardon, Dale Gardon Design Interior Design: Rebecca Salcito, Salcito Design Group Home Builder: Anthony Salcito, Salcito Custom Homes Landscape Architecture: Jeff Berghoff, Berghoff Design Group

Y ears ago, a Texas couple constructed their ideal abode. But sometimes what is perfect at the time isn’t as ideal down the road. “When we built that house, we went with what was current then—Tuscan, Italian,” says the wife. “But we noticed how quickly it became out of date.” So, when they decided to retire to a mountainside plot of land in Arizona, they knew they still wanted a Mediterranean estate-like aesthetic, but made more contemporary with timeless finishes.

“You could refer to it as a modern Mediterranean,” says general contractor Anthony Salcito. “There are a lot of traditional characteristics for the superstructure of the house, and then we made it contemporary in the details.” While aspects of the home lean more classic—curved archways, hipped roofs, symmetrical rooms—he and architect Dale Gardon found ways to riff on the style. In lieu of terra-cotta roofing tiles, they used sleek, black concrete versions; instead of ornate carved architectural stone details, they opted for clean, straight-line carved stone.

The dwelling’s open-plan layout—designed for the couple’s love of hosting and entertaining—also keeps things feeling fresh. “The house is a formal Mediterranean, but it’s actually informal in how it lives,” Gardon explains. “You’ve got the great room with the kitchen, dining, living area, bar, piano and wine collection all together making this beautiful social space the priority.”

The owners were also adamant that the residence feel bright and serene, which meant swaths of white paint and Venetian plaster along with tasteful moldings and cornices for elevated elegance. “In our previous home, everything was iron, heavy and dark,” the wife explains. “This time, being that we were on the mountain, we wanted something light with touches of color and gold for a glamorous and feminine feel.”

When Anthony heard the clients’ plan for their new abode, he knew exactly the interior designer to embrace that vision: his wife, Rebecca Salcito. “Rebecca’s style is very chic and warm at the same time,” he explains. “When people ask me

to describe my wife’s interiors, I tell them they’re like a glamorous hug.” His instincts were right— Rebecca and the wife found an instant synergy. “We were looking to create a very classic and timeless interior,” Rebecca says of the aesthetic they conjured together. “But we took it up a notch and made everything that could have been really traditional more modern.”

To balance the classic feel of the old European oak hardwood floors and the Italian carvedmarble fireplaces, the designer brought in a fresh, playful vibe with vibrant splashes of color and layers of texture. Each room has its own defining tonal palette or characteristic. In the great room and adjoining kitchen, luxurious gold and brass tones pop against a black-and-white color scheme. The wife’s craft studio features a botanical wallpaper alive with turquoise and teal alongside a luxurious chaise upholstered in a rich, royal blue that complements the peacockesque tones of the rug. Up in the primary bathroom, teal green cabinetry harmonizes with brass-framed mirrors and Arabescato Carrara marble, but for the main bedroom, Rebecca kept things slightly more restrained. “We wanted to use wallpaper while staying away from anything too heavy or patterned,” she explains. “So we decided on a wallcovering that had more of a textural look to it, and we based everything off of the fireplace—shades of white and gray that are soothing and relaxing.”

Outdoors, landscape designer Jeff Berghoff sought to match the Mediterranean glamour using crisp materials and symmetrical shapes for the pool and patio along with vegetation that enhanced the architectural style. “We played a lot on textures with layers of hedges, understory foliage and the occasional succulent accent,” Berghoff

Heartbreakingly,says.

the husband passed away before the couple had the chance to move into the dwelling. But for the wife, it’s already filled with cherished memories of all the time they spent envisioning their new dream home together: It’s in the touches of yellow (his favorite color), the decor and furniture they chose in tandem, and the landscape they had the chance to enjoy side-byside during construction.

GREAT DESIGN DOING GOOD

“Affinity’s core value “To Enrich Home Life” doesn’t stop with our customers, employees and professional partners,” Whipps shares. “It extends to organizations like the Phoenix Rescue Mission, OCJ Kids and the Investing Hope Foundation, who are our partners in giving back and making our community a better place for all.”

THE ESSENTIALS

• Porcelain countertops: “Unlike natural stone, these clay-based, kiln-fired slabs are super durable, maintenance-free and keep their pristine appearance, even after years of heavy use.”

• Single-bowl sinks: “Our clients rave about their expansiveness, especially when it comes to washing large pots and pans— and many models offer additional preparation accessories.”

• Steam ovens: “Moist heat cooks food more evenly without drying it out, which is ideal for preparing healthy meals with improved texture and flavor.” 1994 have been has earned them a sterling Scottsdale and beyond. “There are a in the Valley, but none with Affinity’s team of each project through to the end with expertise and care,” says general manager, Kirsten Whipps. “Beyond the manufacturing, materials and finishes, getting the work done right and making every effort to satisfy the customer completely is what matters most.

Founded in 2012, Katherine Mueller Design specializes in new construction, remodeling, furniture selection, layout and accessorizing. When it comes to kitchens and bathrooms, having a well-planned layout makes the function of the space flow better and allows for ease of use. Appliance placement is critical in kitchens, and Mueller advises clients to create a unique zone for refrigeration, cooking and cleaning. In bathrooms, the shower, tub and toilets should be thought out first. Mueller notes: “Personalized storage that is functional and simple to use is a must in the bathroom. Drawer and door layout is important, as well as electrical plugs and drawer inserts.” In the kitchen, Mueller’s pro tip is to install a steam oven. “Steam ovens are wonderful appliances that rejuvenate food, and don’t dry it out like a microwave. Every client loves this product for everyday living and entertaining!”

SOOTHING SPACES

Many homeowners are opting for a natural color palette. “Most clients want to come home to a calming environment with natural lighting,” Mueller says. “Creams, taupes and grays are popular, with highlights of black. Blue is also popular and looks fantastic on countertops and as a pop of color on furniture.”

KITCHEN + BATH MUST-HAVES

Mueller shares her current favorite products and materials.

• A handheld showerhead: “All showers must have one! They are great for cleaning the shower and for adjustability.”

• Touch faucet technology: “I love this in the kitchen, especially the Brizo brand. They are extremely functional when cooking. If you don’t want to touch the faucet with dirty hands, just tap it with the back of your hand!”

• Quartzite countertops: “I love these in the kitchen and the bathroom. The natural material is very durable and beautiful.”

Above Mueller says, “One way to refresh a bathroom is by changing the materials.” The tile design in this shower gives it a luxurious feeling. Top Quartzite countertops and an eye-catching white and chrome hood set the stage for this stunning, neutral-palette kitchen. Bottom “Lighting makes a big impact,” notes Mueller. In this bathroom, the natural light brought in by way of the glass doors brightens the space.

“We enhance environments with design elements that reflect the style of our clients, creating a beautiful, functional space.”

KOHLER SIGNATURE STORE HUGHES SUPPLY

When two great brands join forces, the results are outstanding. That is precisely why the Kohler Signature Store by Hughes Supply has had such a dynamic impact on the design community in Scottsdale and across Arizona. “Ours is a unique partnership between Kohler—an iconic American manufacturer that has created myriad products that elevate the kitchen and bathroom experience each and every day—and Hughes Supply—a highly respected local distributor that is dedicated to bringing clients’ dreams to life, no matter their space or budget,” says store manager, Rebecca Yarborough. “We accomplish this by guiding homeowners and design professionals through Kohler’s wide array of exceptional products and those of their partner brands, Kallista, Ann Sacks and Robern, with transparency, professionalism and outstanding service, resulting in beautiful, functional spaces that stand the test of time.” 480.397.2021 | kohlersignaturestorescottsdale.com | kohlerscottsdale

THE MUST LIST

Rebecca Yarborough on the most in-demand products and materials for the kitchen and bath.

“Products that clients love for the kitchen include Kohler’s touchless faucets and cast-iron sinks,” she shares. “With their focus on water conservation and hygiene, touchless faucets are an exciting new option for the kitchen. And when it comes to introducing beautiful color and long-lasting durability, Kohler’s cast-iron sinks are second to none. In the bathroom, Kohler’s digital showering solutions provide clients with a ‘wow’ factor that streamlines the bulky nature of traditional manual valves. No matter the space or direction, Kohler offers an ever-evolving line of solutions that are inspirational.”

Top Clean, elegant and contained, the Ceric freestanding bathtub expresses contemporary warmth and simplicity. Far left With its flowing lines and personalized finish detail that makes a statement in any bathroom, the Eir intelligent toilet exemplifies the art of innovation.

When great brands connect, innovative design and exceptional quality are the result. Founded in 1979, Studio41 Home Design Showroom has earned an outstanding reputation as the leading source for discerning homeowners, designers and builders who are seeking the very best fixtures, cabinetry, hardware, tile, windows and so much more for their kitchen, bath and home projects. In 2014, Studio41 joined forces with Kohler, taking their business to the next level with their exclusive Kohler Signature Stores in Chicago, Naperville and Palatine. “Kohler has a wide breadth of products and is one of just a few manufacturers that do everything: tubs, faucets, sinks, vanities, hardware and more,” says showroom manager, Garrett Dynes. “This gives us a unique opportunity to create cohesive design solutions for our clients where all of their bathroom fixtures and features work in perfect harmony.”

DEFINING DESIGN

What’s your primary rule for kitchen and bath design? That rules are meant to be broken. If you look at the most stunning designs, they always break the mold in some way.

Which smart technologies are key today? Touchless or touch-to-start faucets, and appliances that offer smart home functionality, such as voice activation. People in Chicago love to try new things.

Share your must-have materials. Manmade quartz surfaces in the kitchen are gorgeous, low maintenance and becoming more affordable. Natural stone is still king in the bath. Although it requires a bit more upkeep, it makes a stunning impression. In both the kitchen and the bathroom, people are gravitating toward painted, rather than stained wood cabinetry.
