All’s Well

I’m writing this letter early on a Friday morning after completing a 10-minute meditation on my Calm app about building consistency. It’s just one component of my daily wellness practice, along with long evening walks, a plant-based diet and an ongoing edit of our home’s interior to make it more regenerative.

Coming out of the pandemic, we have a heightened awareness of the influence that our homes can have on our well-being and the broader environment. At Luxe, we’re taking a leadership role by engaging in this conversation with our readers as well as the greater design community. From conscious landscaping to wellness retreats and meditation rooms, you’ll find the theme woven throughout this issue. We also recently hosted our firstever Living Well summit in Los Angeles featuring a captivating lineup of speakers who inspired and educated our audience with topics ranging from the power of the downstate to universal rules about how to design with intention. I encourage you to learn more by tuning into our new wellness-focused channel, Wellness by Design, launching soon on designtvbysandow.com

SCENE

RAISING THE BAR

THE ROSE GARDEN

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but virtually everyone can agree that downtown Phoenix’s newest cocktail bar, The Rose Garden, holds that quality in spades. Indeed, beauty is at the heart of both its menu (think a pastel rainbow of botanically inspired sips) and its design. Located in the landmark U.S. Bank Center, The Rose Garden celebrates sumptuousness with moss green walls, banquette seating, brass accents and just the right amount of wood grain. A sapphire-hued peacock floats above the main dining room, its presence nodding to the origin story behind the design concept in which a peacock and rose garden compete for

admiration. The well-executed details are no surprise considering the developers behind The Rose Garden are Chiara Katz, Josh Katz and Moe Murillo, the same trio who created Sip Coffee and Beer as well as 36 Below. “We wanted to do something elevated and sophisticated,” Chiara explains. “The downtown market is becoming a destination for nightly entertainment, and we wanted to be a part of it.” In addition to cocktails and tapas, The Rose Garden offers 2,000 square feet of interior space, a newly opened patio with about 40 seats and, due to open in 2023, a private room for up to 25 guests.

OPEN HOUSE

INTERIOR DEFINE STUDIO

Good things come to those who wait. And in the case of design aficionados in Scottsdale, the good thing is Interior Define, a customizable furniture studio that recently moved from a pop-up location to a permanent storefront at Kierland Commons. Interior Define will be familiar to some of Arizona’s more recent transplants from California and Washington, although its new Scottsdale digs may feel refreshingly different. The 6,758-square-foot showroom resides at a welltrafficked intersection of the shopping center. Inside, it looks like a well-appointed home—albeit one that happens to be occupied by a team of design experts wielding cutting-edge technology. Stroll through the studio to browse 80% of the brand’s current product offerings, a dedicated work space for design consultations, and more than 125 fabrics, rug swatches, cushion fills, leg options and other features that have made Interior Define a go-to vendor for customizable furnishings. interiordefine.com

MEET THE MAKER

Sometimes it takes extraordinary circumstances to find your destiny. Such was the case for Aileen Martinez, who began sketching local coffee shops and Phoenix landmarks when pandemic lockdowns closed the school where she worked. Martinez, an art school graduate, found her calling while drawing. Using watercolors and a blend of instinct and training, each of her illustrations riff on reality, whether she’s depicting ASU Gammage or a personal residence. Martinez now draws full time, taking on several commissions a week and running an online shop with prints and postcards. Here, she reflects on her most unusual project, why people are drawn to her art and what she’d like to do next. lookseedraw.com

Why do people want illustrations of local landmarks? Someone remarked that they always see Paris romanticized and landmarks in other cities, but never in Phoenix. People have attachments to these

places, though, and it’s gratifying to be able to say, “Oh, it’s my city being illustrated.”

What has been your most surprising commission to date? Gila River Arena asked me to draw Black Dog Forge in Seattle, where Pearl Jam got their start, with the intention of gifting the illustration to the band. It was cool that something I made was given to them while they were on tour in Phoenix.

Why do you think your art resonates so strongly with people? Anyone can relate to it, regardless of their belief system, background or political views. It’s a neutral space. And I think it comes down to memories and nostalgia; emotions attached to places.

What’s next for you? I like drawing and watercolors so much because you can finish faster. Painting takes longer, but I’d like to get into it. I want to make something bigger and challenge myself in that way.

DATE BOOK

Known for her elegant approach to contemporary design, Angelica Henry is as devoted to her craft as she is to her home state.

Maybe it’s because she’s a secondgeneration Arizonan, or perhaps because she’s passionate about things that matter to her. Either way, she has shown herself committed to versatility in design (she can pull off an ultramodern aesthetic as convincingly as a traditional one) and multiple good causes. She and her team have contributed to a variety of philanthropic efforts over the years, from designing a home for a wounded military veteran to regularly supporting the Phoenix Art Museum. With her impeccable design credentials and deep Arizona roots, Henry knows how to celebrate the winter holiday season in a way that is both inspiring and inspired. Here, she shares her ideal day. angelicahenrydesign.com

8 a.m. I’ll start the day by hiking Scottsdale’s Granite Mountain to enjoy the cool weather and beautiful scenery.

10 a.m. After working up an appetite on the trail, it’s off to brunch at Arcadia Farms Café, an iconic local restaurant specializing in organic salads, composed sandwiches and artistic desserts, all within a cozy home-turned-dining room.

12 p.m. Next, I’ll stop by Scottsdale Fashion Square to do some holiday shopping for families in need with the Salvation Army Angel Tree.

1 p.m. The shopping continues at A Curated Touch, where I can choose from luxurious throws, bath accoutrements and specialty chocolates.

3 p.m. A visit to Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is next on the day’s itinerary. I like to drop by to view their latest exhibitions.

6 p.m. For dinner, I’ll meet up with some of my colleagues at Christopher’s at Wrigley Mansion.

8 p.m. To end the night, I’ll pay a visit to Desert Botanical Garden to see the magical Las Noches de las Luminarias, celebrating its 45th year of dazzling hand-lit luminaries and holiday entertainment.

With decades of experience gardening through droughts, landscape designers across the West Coast have themselves become a precious resource. Their collected insights and ideas offer a path forward that reduces water consumption and aides in the overall improvement of our environment. From big changes to concepts as simple as using native plants, the West’s take on waterwise gardening—the practice of selecting plants that require less irrigation—is a wellspring of inspiration.

Many in the industry agree that a first step is changing our mindset: Waterwise doesn’t mean unattractive landscapes. And outdated language like xeriscaping (a term coined by Denver’s Department of Water in the 1980’s) hasen’t helped win anyone over. Landscape designers today are moving the conversation beyond gravel and cacti and showing just how inviting waterwise gardens can be. “People are getting into it now,” says Charlie Ray of The Green Room Collaborative in Phoenix. “They’re seeing how a dynamic native garden adds to the atmosphere

of their home.” Montecito Landscape’s Lisa Cullen has similarly shifted the dialogue with clients. “Nobody wants to do something because they have to,” explains the California-based organic gardener. “Rather than selling waterwise, we focus on the benefits and how pretty it can be.”

“We’ve overwatered environments for decades because of inappropriate material choices,” continues Ray, who carefully considers which flora and fauna to use for each project and often starts by adding shade trees, which create a micro-climate under their canopy. “Layer shrubs, massed for drifts of color and texture, and then lots of wildflowers—you’ll see the birds and butterflies come right in,” he adds.

For Forestoration’s David Noftsinger there is such joy in seeing blanket flowers grow wild in nearby Glacier National Park, and equally happily in his own garden. “Planting natives helps develop a sense of place and an appreciation for the bounty of your area,” explains Noftsinger, who recommends homeowners familiarize themselves with natives unique to their state. Visiting

local botanical gardens for inspiration can also be helpful. “Become a member, go to workshops, volunteer—they’re a key resource for local communities,” says Ray.

All in all, the approach to gardening and landscaping happening on a local level along the West Coast can be replicated across the country. And as Noftsinger believes, “the more pieces we put back together, and incorporate what’s supposed to be there, the more change we’ll see— every bit you can do is beneficial.”

VERA ICONICA ARCHITECTURE’S VERONICA SCHREIBEIS SMITH BREAKS DOWN THE IMPORTANCE OF WELLNESS IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT.

I like to say we design experiences and architecture happens to be our medium. Whether you call it wellness architecture or something different, what we’re seeking to do—not just with every project, but with every space—is nurture the soul, optimize people’s lives and elevate the human experience. Architecture is the practice of creating your surroundings and it can influence everything from an inhabitant’s emotions and cognitive performance to relationships and the ways in which we gather and interact. Did you know we spend 90 percent of our time indoors? How we sculpt and model that

interior really impacts every single part of our lives.

Buildings are powerful. There have been neuroscientific studies done where EKGs are performed on people who are then taken into unique buildings like a temple, Grand Central Station or the Salk Institute. Their frontal lobe actually shuts down once inside. This is what happens in meditation, when you enter a non-dualistic or flow state, which is your highest level of being. So people who can tap into this and work from their flow state are often high-performing businesspeople, musicians or creatives— they feel super productive and happy. I try to create spaces that support how people want to operate and are tailored to their

inhabitants in every way because when homes have a proportional or harmonic resonance, you will ultimately feel better.

At the end of the day, humans are a part of nature and if we fight that or try to shut it out, we end up hurting ourselves. I make sure that natural materials and plenty of light are present in every project. Using local resources also creates a sense of culture, belonging and identity which is really important to our existence. But everything comes back to being in harmony with nature and taking care of our planet. veraiconica.com

The Great Escape

FROM CALIFORNIA TO THE CATSKILLS, THESE NEW HIGH-DESIGN DESTINATIONS ARE AIMED AT IMMERSIVE WELL-BEING.

If the latest crop of wellness hotels, retreats and fitness clubs across the U.S. have anything in common, it’s that exactly none of them adhere to the ubiquitous spa aesthetic of recent decades—dependably soothing but often dull. The future of luxury destinations takes a more full-bodied approach and looks

to improve your physical, emotional and spiritual states through elevated experiences and sophisticated spaces. From luxe resorts and nature-focused bootcamp-style getaways to exclusive, über-stylish gyms, these wellness hot spots will have you longing to pack your bags and take a deep exhale upon arrival.

RESET Telluride, Colorado

The rugged San Juan Mountains were undeniably influential for architect and designer Stephanie Malsed when creating the interior scheme for Reset’s wellness center, the hub of an ultra-luxe, intensive nature-focused retreat in Colorado. The state-of-the-art facility for sweating, recovering and mindfulness practice harnesses the five elements—wood, fire, earth, metal and water—and draws in colors from the outdoors, namely pine green and warm pink tones from alpenglow. Guests engage in guided half-day treks and self-care rituals surrounded by nature or in the comfort of the wellness center. At the end of the day, retreat to a private section of the Madeline Hotel & Residences with amenities that include algae-infused slippers, a hydration bar and customized aromatherapy. resettelluride.com

THE RANCH Hudson Valley, New York

The Ranch, a results-oriented fitness retreat, which began in Malibu in 2010, is ready for its East Coast debut after taking over the legendary 200-acre Table Rock Estate in upstate New York. Designer Steven Gambrel oversaw the interior and historical restoration of the 1902 structure, devising a total transformation of its rooms, including the former ballroom reimagined as a gym for yoga, meditation and fitness sessions. Guests can kick off their morning with hikes through nearby Ringwood and Harriman State Park. Organic, plant-based meals, naps and daily massages are additional hallmarks of the idyllic but intense regiment. theranchmalibu.com

SENSEI PORCUPINE CREEK Rancho Mirage, California

A sense of calm and Japanese Zen penetrates the light-filled 22-room and -villa Sensei Porcupine Creek. A sister property to Lawrence Ellison and Dr. David Agus’ Sensei Lanai in Hawaii, the newest location promises guests a similarly bespoke journey toward living healthier, longer lives. Ellison oversaw all design details as a 230-acre private estate in the Santa Rosa Mountain foothills was converted into the ultimate wellness destination offering patrons three pathways to follow: Move, Nourish and Rest. The sunny and lush property—complete with gardens, a lagoon pool, golf fairways and hiking trails—is as much a part of the recipe for well-being as the Sensei Guide-led practices and treatments (think Abhyanga four-handed massage), plus five-star cuisine at Sensei by Nobu. sensei.com

HEIMAT Los Angeles, California

This fitness and wellness concept club, located in a refurbished 1930s industrial building in Los Angeles, is the future for the gym-going, Soho House-belonging, health-conscious set. The members-only outpost boasts stained glass panels dividing custom strength machines from a studio of specially designed Pilates reformers. The light-filled cardio area, complete with a cacti garden, resembles a chic hotel lobby while the locker rooms, conceived by Germany-based design studio Inco Media, are fitted with marble, hand-crafted wood paneling and Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona daybeds. Upstairs, famed architect and designer Martin Brudnizki enriched the interiors of Michelin-starred chef Michael Mina’s Mother Tongue restaurant, which lives alongside a sparkling pool and exuberant co-working space awash in yellow. heimat.com

Wellness in the Woods

A LUXURIOUS MONTANA RESORT PROVIDES NATURE FOR NURTURE.

It turns out that you can get pretty close to nirvana by taking a mindfulness walk. I’ve recently leaned into the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who encouraged the practice of mindful walking. Yet, to truly deepen the connection, one needs to be in a place where the magical properties of wellness can take hold. For me, that was on a trip to The Green O.

Nestled into a quiet ponderosa pine forest hillside, the resort sits on 37,000 sweeping acres outside of Missoula, Montana, and envelopes visitors like a soft hug. One part luxury ranch and two parts nature immersion for body and soul, the all-inclusive, adults-only property is an exclusive assemblage of 12 design-forward, glass-boxed villas constructed with sustainable principles that dot the land like works of sculptural art. Of all the semi-secluded “haus” designs, my favorite was Tree Haus, which sits on stilts rising 23-feet above ground and features a spiral staircase running through its three-story spine. I enjoyed lavish comforts sheltered inside while simultaneously immersed in the panoramic landscape, glimpsed through towering floor-to-ceiling windows that provided views of wildlife and a hint of warm twinkling lights from Green Hauses beyond.

Among The Green O’s 12 rustic-yet-refined accommodations is Tree Haus, which sits on stilts offering an elevated view of the surrounding landscape.

This communal-like setting is crowned by Social Haus, the property’s heart center that functions as dining room, bar and central gathering spot. Architect and designer Kristen Becker of Seattle-based Mutuus Studio worked alongside interior designer and executive co-owner Nadine Lipson to conceive interiors that cast a smoky Modernism vibe with cozy campfire-style seating, leafy green hues and shou sugi ban wood reflective of the woodland surroundings. The Michelin-worthy culinary experience, led by executive chef Brandon Cunningham, impresses with nightly curated nine-course tasting menus, gourmet wood-fired pizzas available for delivery to your private hot tub, and artful delights by James Beard-nominated pastry chef Krystle Swenson. It could well be that her rosé-soaked rhubarb cake and dark chocolate brown tart with conifer green gelato ice cream were all the wellness I needed!

I spent my days learning how to flyfish on the Blackfoot River accompanied by a patient guide; riding ATVs through sprawling pastures; stopping off at the equestrian center for a bit of horse therapy and luxuriating in a mineral mud bath at the spa. But the most profound part of my stay was the stillness of early morning strolls in the woods, practicing mindful breathing and walking— and connecting to the wonders of the earth. thegreeno.com

British designer Jane Atfield’s RCP2 chair, inspired by Dutch furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld’s 1923 Military Side Chair, was one of the first pieces of furniture made exclusively from recycled plastic. Now, a series of re-editions have been commissioned by Emma Scully Gallery in New York City to celebrate the design’s 30th anniversary. A thought leader in conscious design, Atfield’s original RCP2 chair is featured in the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. emmascullygallery.com

craft traditions of India are at the heart of Tantuvi, a rug company founded by former fashion designer Arati Rao in 2015. The Malachite Rug, shown here, is made by artisans in Rajasthan using reclaimed silk remnants collected from the sari industry. Its geometric step-like pattern is a nod to 400-year-old stone staircases—some of which still stand today—found in Northern India that were built to access water sources.

A single vintage wingback chair from the 1950s, Mexico City, was in need of restoration, and Designer wished to have a second chair created to match. The original chair was completely stripped down to frame and re-crafted, broken areas on base were repaired and re-finished. A second (new) chair was custom fabricated to create a matched pair, with hand-crafted hardwood frame and custom hand-shaped legs and low stretcher with ebonized finish. Both chairs received new custom upholstery, using the finest craftsmanship and materials.

SMART STYLE

When it came to her own kitchen in the greater New York City area, French-born, Manhattan-based interior designer Laurence Carr designed the space to serve as a central wellness area for her family of five. “My husband and I have three teenagers, and this is a place where we can work, socialize and cook together,” explains Carr, who collaborated with architect Jordan Rosenberg to conceive the contemporary home. “Biophilia, plenty of natural light and sustainability were also important considerations. There are large windows that provide a connection to the garden, and the

amount of light entering the space is important in minimizing the electricity and lighting that’s necessary.” Carr kept the palette clean and simple, employing a mix of dark gray and cream cabinetry, Calacatta marble and wood accents. “Cream is much softer than white, and the gray lends a contemporary touch,” says the designer. To create a look that’s seamless and streamlined, Carr paneled many of the appliances and even included a hidden door—made to look like one of the cabinets— that leads to a walk-in pantry. “The space feels timeless yet modern.” laurencecarr.com

CALMING FORCE

Claire Staszak of the Chicago firm Centered by Design is known for what she calls a holistic approach, combining her love of interiors with a passion for wellness (she is also a certified yoga instructor). So, it’s no surprise that when she was tasked with the renovation of a 1930s Colonial north of Chicago, she whipped up a kitchen for a young family that feels calm, balanced and serene. Staszak was limited to working within the kitchen’s existing footprint, however she was able to make a few key changes—including closing off an opening to the dining room, removing a window to add symmetry and adding a larger window to bring in more light—that make all the difference. “In doing this, we were able to fit in everything we wanted, including a large island and a coffee bar,” notes the designer. “The clients wanted something fresh and beautiful with a mix of Southern charm and the feel of a French bistro.” With that in mind, Staszak installed custom cabinetry from her firm’s in-house line in a light taupe shade, cafe-inspired lighting, natural wood accents and periwinkle backsplash tile from Ann Sacks. “Custom cabinetry provides the opportunity for a variety of details tailored to the homeowners’

needs, such as arched doors and open shelving,” Staszak explains. With the clients being avid cooks and entertainers, storage was a major focus. The designer incorporated hidden compartments for appliances, bakeware and utensils, while niches flanking the range hold cooking essentials such as oils and spices. Meanwhile, easy-to-clean quartz surfaces lend durability to the hardworking space. “Health and well-being are important to this couple, and I really tried to be a calm and grounding presence during the renovation process,” Staszak says. “My job is always to take the stress off my clients, make the process feel like a true collaboration, and channel a Zen attitude.” Most importantly, adds the designer, “a space doesn’t have to be boring in order to feel balanced.” centeredbydesign.com

NATURAL INSTINCT

When Los Angeles−based decorator Mandy Cheng set eyes on the magical treetop views from this Woodland Hills kitchen—which sits three stories above the ground thanks to the home’s hillside setting—it became clear that nature should take center stage in this renovation. “The view inspired the design and dictated the palette,” Cheng explains. “I wanted to bring the trees in and tie the design to the outdoors.” Cheng chose a combination of white oak upper cabinets and open shelving, which recalls oak trees outside, and green to channel the leaves. “When colors are consistent between indoors and out it gives the illusion of more space,” Cheng notes. Furthermore, the designer installed windowed cabinetry that not only references the residence’s Craftsman style, but “maintains that open, airy quality. We wanted to keep the cabinetry from feeling too heavy.” Low-maintenance quartz countertops, unlacquered brass fixtures that will develop a patina over time and a “natural-looking” textured tile backsplash round out the scheme. To address the client’s need for additional storage, Cheng installed custom drawers for cooking utensils, a nook for storing paper towels and wooden crates to hold potatoes and onions. “The previous layout discouraged cooking and eating well because it didn’t function properly,” Cheng says. “Now it feels clean, calm and inviting.” mandychengdesign.com

Keep the Peace

WELLNESS ROOMS HAVE EVOLVED FROM AMENITY TO NECESSITY.

As our world grows increasingly complex and connected, the need for places to get away from it all grows too. From Luxe’s bird’s eye view, seeking escape doesn’t necessarily mean looking outside the confines of home— quite the opposite, in fact. Take this Glendora, California, meditation room by designer Norm Wogan, which perfectly illustrates today’s artistic, deeply considered approach to at-home escapism. May these magical wellness spaces, from Brooklyn to Hawaii’s Big Island, inspire you to create your own slice of sanctuary.

Designer Norm Wogan scoured local Indian and Moroccan shops for unique artifacts—including an antique altar and aged copper pendants—to outfit his client’s Glendora, California, healing and meditation room. wogandesign.com

TAKE PAUSE

“My husband and I took meditation classes years ago. Afterwards, we set the intention to do a daily 20-minute meditation in the morning and another in the afternoon,” shares designer Lisa Kahn. For Kahn, maintaining a morning practice was easy. An afternoon practice amidst the activity of office life was another story—so she crafted a meditation room in her Naples, Florida, headquarters. To encourage

midday respite, the designer wrapped the space in a Kravet raffia, adding comfortable pillows in a HomArt batik fabric and live-edge wood stands to display healing objects. “We believe meditation is an important element of the day to gather a sense of self when the bustle feels all-consuming,” she says. “It helps us stay connected to our larger purpose for being here.” lisakahndesigns.com

RECHARGING STATION

When hired by clients with an appreciation for the Japanese bathing ritual of a shower to cleanse the body followed by a bath to cleanse the soul, designer Lindsay Anyon Brier saw a unique opportunity for an exterior wellness space. Specifically, when she viewed their Piedmont, California, home’s deck, set conveniently off a gym, she envisioned a soaking tub. In collaboration with Berkeley Heat, she conceived a cedar hot tub seemingly dropped within the tree line. Underscoring the home’s commitment to sustainability, the creation boasts a drainage feature in lieu of chemical maintenance. (Wastewater is then used to irrigate the property.) Adding a touch of sparkle to the scene, decorative screens with a Moroccan motif “create a sense of privacy and intimacy while focusing the eye on views of San Francisco Bay,” notes the designer. anyondesign.com

HEAVEN SENT

An enchanting yet derelict Hawaii Island property brought together the team of designer Marion Philpotts-Miller, architect Paige Wilburn and landscape designer David Tamura. Together, they restored the home’s old growth teak ceilings and beams, infused light and flow throughout the interiors and reimagined the grounds, whose pièce de résistance is an entry courtyard designed for peaceful repose. A lanai illuminated by vintage Japanese lanterns and outfitted with an antique bench flanked by bronze Burmese guardians offers the homeowners a particularly contemplative space to enjoy the sights and sounds of several water features. Not the least of which is a hidden shower garden tucked behind a retractable teak screen. philpotts.net

DREAMING IN COLOR

Leave it to designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to kick any notions that neutral and wellness must walk hand-in-hand to the curb. Exhibit A: This exuberant massage room set high on a cliff in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Bullard confidently swathed the space in Benjamin Moore’s Covington Blue, a languid, ocean-green tone that plays to the Sea of Cortez beyond the windows. A medley of natural woven sisal and abaca furnishings—all nods to indigenous Mexican arts and crafts—join a 1970s painting scored at an antique shop in Mexico City, which Bullard admits is his favorite element of the room. “The vibrancy holds you captive whilst still maintaining calmness due to its abstract nature and ear thy pigments,” he explains, adding, “it has a distinct and welcoming warmth reminiscent of Cabo’s famous sunsets.”

INNER SANCTUM

When designer Cheryl Settino Mosher’s clients tasked her with crafting a prayer room within their Brooklyn apartment, she did her research first. For visual inspiration, Mosher referenced Owen Jones’ The Grammar of Ornament, looking to motifs of ancient civilizations.

Ultimately, she landed on a quartet of Schumacher wallpapers in sepia tones, which were deconstructed then put together in a bespoke pattern intended to evoke the feel of a sacred space modernized for contemporary

living. Meanwhile, for the layout, she used a Qibla compass to place the family’s beloved prayer rug directed toward the Kaaba. Bathed in diffuse sunlight, the room, with its cozy, velvet-covered divan, has become a reading room as well as a place for worship. “It’s an area to recharge,” says Mosher. “Now more than ever, we need these spaces. Whether you have a large home or an apartment, you have to make time to sit and find quiet—whatever that means for you.” brooklyn.studio

Enduring expertise and a strong sense of community inspire epic Arizona design. As the founder and principal architect at Candelaria Design Associates, Mark Candelaria leads an award-winning team whose unmatched skills and collaborative approach have resulted in some of Arizona’s most groundbreaking homes and commercial projects. “Our mission is to create environments that represent our clients’ dreams and elevate their lives,” Candelaria says. “Designing a home can be intimidating, so it’s our job to provide a step-by-step plan that is cooperative and enjoyable, not overwhelming.” Over the past few years, the CDA team has had the chance to flex their design muscles in exciting new ways. “Our clients want amenities like gyms, spas, bowling alleys, large entertaining spaces and guesthouses, which inspire us to think outside the box and deliver thoughtful designs that exceed their expectations.”

THE MARK OF EXCELLENCE

“Thanks to Mark, our team has a true appreciation for the honor that is bestowed on us when a client chooses CDA to design their home,” says CFO Evelyn Jung. “In addition, he creates amazing client opportunities including annual hosted tours to Italy and Spain, as well as a recent tour of Oregon’s wine country. Mark also loves to cook for clients in their completed homes, offices and showrooms. As if that weren’t enough, Mark hosts a monthly podcast called Inspiring Living with Mark Candelaria where he interviews exceptional people, and he authored a coffee table book entitled Mark Candelaria Homes: Designs for Inspired Living. Mark also inspires our team to give back to the community through volunteer service and by designing facilities for a number of charities. Mark’s principled leadership, client care and community involvement has resulted in 23 years of excellence.”

Epic Arizona design is achieved when skilled artisans blend traditional forms with modern amenities that complement the unique landscape. At the forefront of outstanding architecture, design and construction is Capstone Homes. “Our custom-built and custom-quality production homes have a reputation for excellence,” says Christine French, architectural manager at Capstone Homes. Specializing in transitional designs, Capstone Homes builds with Arizona’s cultural heritage, natural environment and innovative spirit in mind. “In Flagstaff, we are known for mixing the Craftsman cabin aesthetics with mountain modern architecture to bring state-of-the-art accents and materials to our warm, nostalgic designs,” French adds. “While in Prescott, we offer customizable, single-story floor plans with varied elevations of traditional, modern and farmhouse that provide high design on a more modest scale.”

IT’S GREAT TO BE GREEN

Capstone Homes was one of the first to construct Energy Star-certified homes and is now building Zero Energy Ready Homes (ZERH). Only 1 percent of builders in the country are meeting these extraordinary levels of energy efficiency and performance set by this U.S. Department of Energy certification program. Capstone Homes is also an Energy Star, WaterSense and Indoor AirPlus program partner as well as a recipient of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Award.

360-DEGREE DESIGN

“We offer a unique design-build program that truly sets us apart in the industry,” French says. “This one-stop, in-house plan means that a sales associate, personal designer, options coordinator and project manager serve as our clients’ personal team that provides service, support and expertise from initial planning to move-in day.”

Top, Right, Center & Far right Located in Flagstaff’s exclusive Lockett Ranches, this mountain modern estate features a stunning main residence that showcases transitional design. The primary bedroom boasts a wood painted accent wall and vaulted ceiling, while the primary bath blends a luxurious, freestanding tub with the organic elegance of natural river rock.

CARSON ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

A collaborative, customized approach to architecture and design that is inspired by the desert’s natural elements and beauty yields epic results. When Andrew Carson III left his native Philadelphia to attend Arizona State he became enamored with the place and the people. As the president of Carson Architecture and Design, Carson’s passion for the Desert State has grown and evolved over the past 20 years. “I love what I do,” he says. “Every day is different and the one-of-a-kind designs we create for our clients are always challenging and unique.” In addition to his clients’ wants, needs and visions, Carson takes great inspiration from Arizona itself. “The fact that Arizona is always evolving and changing in the creative realm has brought a real sophistication to every aspect of architecture and design, which makes it an incredible place to practice one’s craft and evolve artistically.”

DISTINCTIVE DESIGN

Andrew Carson reveals his expert insights and inspirations.

• Where is your firm located and how does it inspire you? We have been in our office on McDonald Drive in Scottsdale for 24 years now. Being in a building with other amazing builders, interior designers and architects is a great source of inspiration and collaboration.

• What is your signature style? The fact that we don’t have one. I enjoy working in every conceivable style because it is challenging and helps us grow professionally. Also, our clients like that we are well-versed in many styles and open to helping them fulfill their dreams through their projects.

• Describe the keys to your success. Being in a place that is experiencing so much growth allows us to be selective with the projects we take on and helps to push our skills to the next level. And none of my work would be successful without the many talented builders, interior designers and landscape companies we work with.

While we used to focus solely on landscape, we have expanded our network to include several amazing field experts to be able to design and implement a singular, cohesive concept.”

With so many origins, there comes a cornucopia of styles, colors, textures, preferences and ideas that fuse together in synergistic harmony to create a flourishing and unique creative community.” The rich variety is key for the DFL team, which has become known for its ability to achieve any concept. “I let my imagination go wild, then figure out how to make it reality,” Plocher says. From a two-tiered, glass-front, 20,000-gallon koi pond to the illusion of fire rising out of a pool, his notable projects show his talent for combining dreams with practical possibilities.

For many years, the Desert Foothills team’s signature style was contoured layers of texture and color. But while this look prevails for traditional homes, DFL has also developed more linear and minimalistic projects to complement contemporary architecture, which, Plocher notes, has gained regional popularity in the past 10 to 15 years.

An enduring commitment to quality, a keen understanding of the community and a deep respect for the land and environment are the keys to achieving epic Arizona design. Upon completing a design degree and attending the architecture school at Arizona State University, Dan Boylan fulfilled his creative passions when he founded DLB Custom Homes in 1998. Today, he and his award-winning team are Arizona’s premier custom home builders. “As a design-build firm grounded by architectural roots instead of the trades, we have a profound respect for Arizona’s unique creative community and tap into our hugely beneficial collaborative network on every project,” Boylan says. “And as a family business, we are laser-focused on building homes of uncompromising quality, while remaining dedicated to an exceptional level of service. All of which has fueled our amazing success for more than a quarter century.”

AN ARIZONA ORIGINAL

Arizona native Holly Wright shares her insights on what it takes to achieve high design in the high desert.

• What makes Arizona’s design community so special?

Regardless of firms, clients or regions, we all work together to support each other and foster one another’s successes.

• Describe your signature style. Our designs are modern, not trendy, and we thrive on making each home unique. The serenity of the Arizona desert is often reflected in our designs, which brings an added layer of welcoming warmth that our clients love.

• Where do you look for fresh sources of inspiration? Most often, I find inspiration in the materials we use. I take their scale, texture and pattern into consideration and then try to enhance their beauty by using them in innovative ways.

expertise, ingenuity and teamwork

that drive epic design. This is something that Holly Wright understands and has made the cornerstone of Holly Wright Design, her Scottsdalebased interior design firm. “There are several core values we lead and design by, including innovation, originality and integrity,” she says. “We offer our clients a fully custom, curated experience that is never ‘cut and paste.’ My team is transparent with one another, our clients and our partners in the design community because we know that working with care and kindness yields excellent results.” And Wright’s comprehensive approach to each project makes her work both beautiful and functional. “Our designs are fluid, which makes the home feel good as a whole, and then we take it a step further by adding a surprise and delight element to create something truly individual and epic for our clients.”

• How does your Arizona neighborhood energize and inspire you? We are located in Old Town Scottsdale and love its incredible charm and easy access to local showrooms, studios, shops and restaurants.

“It looks like no other home in Arizona while looking like it could belong in no other place.” This is the inspiring sentence Brent Kendle utters while talking about his firm, Kendle Design Collaborative, and one of its Paradise Valley projects, titled Dancing Light. The residence came up because it showcases his viewpoint. “We believe immersing oneself in nature brings actual physical wellbeing,” he says. “We also believe that when you design for the unique qualities of a place, the result will rest in harmony within that environment, and both will be better for it. This is the essence of what Frank Lloyd Wright’s design philosophy means to me and what drove me to become an architect.” This unique perspective on architecture, coupled with a reputation for grasping construction detailing and documentation (local builders are big KDC fans), has made the firm a revered one throughout Arizona.

STORIED ROOTS

“Our studio is located within the historic Cattle Track Arts Compound in Scottsdale,” Brent shares. “It is a true Arizona gem, immersed in art, craft, history and innovation. Our office is in a 1941 adobe ranch home, designed and built by George Ellis, who notably built for Frank Lloyd Wright and taught him about desert masonry construction—a prevalent technique in Wright’s Arizona designs, most famously at Taliesin West.”

EVOLUTION OF PLACE

Upon being asked to describe the state of design in Arizona, Brent says it is experiencing its own sort of renaissance. “Never in my 40 years living here have I seen such talent and innovation in our field,” he says. “When I arrived in the late 70s, Arizona felt like a place where people came to make their money, before moving to La Jolla. Today, I feel more people consider Arizona their permanent home, and with that, they design and build for the long term, with lasting quality.”

MEET THE DESIGN DUO

• Sandy Black was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. Early in her marriage when she was trying to decorate her home and finances were tight, she discovered she had an ability to paint decoratively, whether on walls or furniture. This eventually led to Sandy working for an interior designer as a faux finisher. After receiving her certification in interior design seven years ago, she opened her own interior design firm. This year, Sandy and Mary Marsh started Lillian James Design Group.

• Mary Marsh moved to Arizona as a child and grew up in the Scottsdale area. She has had a passion for interior design since she was a young child. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Design Studies and Interior Design History from Arizona State University in 2004 and has worked in the Arizona interior design community for 18 years—Mary worked for several design firms before opening her own in 2015. This year, Mary and Sandy Black joined together to create Lillian James Design Group.

CRAFTING A COMMUNITY

“We are always looking

items for our projects,” the partners share. “Our community is the foundation of what we do, so in return we want to support them and help them grow.”

Achieving epic Arizona design takes talent, skill, teamwork and a passion for excellence. As the principal designers at Lillian James Design Group, Mary Marsh and Sandy Black pool their skills, resources and expertise to create custom homes and environments using a collaborative approach. “We like to say that we don’t have a particular style but apply our vision and know-how to create spaces that reflect each client’s unique desires,” the partners say. “Our innate ability to visualize a space’s potential makes an impact on every project.” Their client-focused mission provides other essential benefits. “Attention to detail and keen project management skills mean that our projects run seamlessly, are on budget and stay within the client’s parameters. We believe in developing relationships across each project’s ecosystem to ensure that we’re working cohesively to obtain the very best outcome.” LILLIAN JAMES DESIGN GROUP 480.702.0534 | lillianjames.com | lillianjamesdesigngroup

What makes Linear Fine Woodworking unique? Allan Rosenthal shares his insights.

• Ar tistry: We are the rare custom manufacturer that produces veneer panels in-house. This, along with the large variety of rare wood species and grain figures we carry truly sets us apart.

• Service: We are good listeners and extremely attentive to each client’s wants and needs. This approach combined with our impeccable quality and attention to detail elevates our clients’ lives.

• In novation: Recently, we’ve expanded operations and made significant investments in new machinery and technology and are currently in the process of building a new showroom where our clients can experience our wide range of veneers, grain-matching techniques, customizations and finishes firsthand.

EPIC INSPIRATION

“Our inspiration comes from the groundbreaking projects we work on and the talented partners we collaborate with,” Rosenthal shares. “Looking at all of the new projects going on around us and important landmarks like the Arizona Science Center, the Phoenix Art Museum and the iconic homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Vernon Swaback and Al Beadle, is also very inspiring.”

LAUREN WALLACE INTERIORS

A comprehensive approach to design, construction and renovation results in truly epic homes. Since 2016, Lauren and Frank DiMaggio and their expert team at MDF Development have built and remodeled some of Arizona’s most noteworthy properties, and with the introduction of Lauren Wallace Interiors in 2020, they’ve taken their design know-how to new heights. “We are proud to be an Arizona-based business,” Lauren says. “We started out doing luxury remodels on spec and over time were able to take on more projects and grow our team to over 30 people. As our reputation and presence in Valley real estate increased, we began remodeling client-owned properties, buying and developing land and constructing new homes. Two years ago, we developed our interior design department into Lauren Wallace Interiors and now work hand in hand with MDF Development and other prestigious builders.”

• What is your signature style? Chic but livable. We curate the best elements from many styles to pay homage to the architect and the client we’re working with. Arizona’s climate and beauty also influence our work through the use of natural materials and a palette rich in history.

• Define “best practices” and how you instill them in your work. It was our goal this year to break down our process and rebuild in order to create a more consistent client experience across both of our companies. We constantly evaluate our practices and study how we can become more efficient and more accurate in our work while providing exceptional communication.

To get to the heart of what makes Arizona design truly epic, you must consider the details. That is an ideal Lauren Rautbord, founder of Paul Lauren Designs, learned long ago and made the cornerstone of her success. “When you see an exceptionally beautiful room, it’s the result of a hundred little things done right, from design to budgeting, ordering, shipping and installing,” Rautbord says. “Staying on top of every detail on every job every day is our ‘best practice.’” That ardent attention to detail is what empowers Rautbord and her team to create legendary environments that are eclectic, graceful and sophisticated. “My signature style is timeless and classic,” she adds. “I believe that true elegance comes from texture, color and scale carefully layered to create serenity and visual impact that draws you in. My spaces are warm, inviting and restrained. After all, my mantra is ‘less is more.’”

INSPIRED TO ELEGANCE

Lauren Rautbord finds creative ideas and solutions everywhere.

• Arizona on my mind:

Arizona has luminous beauty and stunning desert vistas that I incorporate into all of my projects. A client’s home that is in perfect harmony with the landscape is pure epic design.

• Function follows form:

Because my clients are nesting and working from home more than ever before, my designs provide the function and flexibility they need and the serenity and style they crave.

• Art alliance:

I make a point to seek out and form alliances with great artisans and craftspeople. This connects my clients to unique works and supports creative genius.

CHAIN REACTION

To counter current supply chain issues Lauren Rautbord has tapped into her deep network of vendor and supplier relationships to navigate the environment and deliver jobs on-time and on-budget.

Arizona is becoming a destination for the rich and famous, and it is elevating the design scene. This is the reply Erik B. Peterson, AIA, offers up upon being asked to discuss the local state of design. He continues, “We’re meeting the craftsmanship and sophistication of other major cities, and Arizona is becoming a melting pot of creative individuals from many different places. They are searching for new methods and style opportunities, which our climate has the flexibility for.” On the subject of craftsmanship, he notes that local artists and tradespeople are essential to the completion of the PHX team’s design intent. “Whether it be wood carvings of cabinetry, stone sculpting in fireplace surrounds, weaving in custom rugs or plasterwork in the walls, we like to utilize these honored trades, which are too often becoming lost art forms.”

STATE OF TREASURES

Peterson shares a few of the architectural gems he most reveres, noting, “All of these are uniquely Arizona—regional projects that simply wouldn’t work in other locations. They are organic and respond to their environment.”

• Taliesin West

• Wigwam Arizona

• Arizona Biltmore

• Mary Colter’s Desert View Watchtower

• La Posada

• Chapel of the Holy Cross

INSPIRATION SURROUNDS

Asked to share his inspirations, Peterson points to the world around him. “Travel is one of the best sources of design inspiration,” he says. “Experiencing the built environment and feeling spaces created by architecture is the best way to understand scale, proportion and aesthetics.” Nature, too, lends influence, with the sun’s constant presence and the patterns found in desert plant life playing a role in PHX’s design process.

POETZL ARCHITECTURE

DESIGN

From the physical environment to finding the right balance between traditional forms and cuttingedge conveniences to possessing a collaborative spirit, achieving epic Arizona design involves many factors. Enter Jon Poetzl, an Arizona native with an impressive design résumé that stretches back more than two decades. He founded Poetzl Architecture + Design in 2015 with a mission to provide exceptional custom residential and boutique commercial architecture that is tailored to his clients’ wants, needs and visions. “An important key to our success has been keeping the firm small because it promotes a hands-on approach, which is necessary when creating personal spaces,” Poetzl says. “Aligning just the right team that shares the same passion is what allows us to maximize both the client experience and the end results. As I always say, you can teach design but you can’t teach passion.”

EPIC DESIGN DEFINED

• Describe your signature style. Streamlined and simplified. I understand that there are many contributors to the overall design experience—interiors, landscape, light, shadow, sun angles and much more—so every inch of a building need not be adorned to make it beautiful.

• What sets your designs apart? We keep our architect’s eye focused on spatial scale and work hard to make the homes that we design feel comfortable and appropriate for the people living there.

• Share a top client design request. They want to be able to expand interior spaces to the exterior, which creates seamless multipurpose living and entertaining areas without the burden of an oversize house.

• How does traditional Arizona culture influence you?

Traditional design ideals that incorporate solar orientation, shade, vegetation, views and native materials are extremely important when you talk about long-term survival in our desert landscape.

ROBINETTE ARCHITECTS

Ron Robinette founded Robinette Architects in 1984, his goal was to create a firm specializing in unique custom homes and to become a design leader in Southwest Arizona. Thanks to his signature ability to integrate his design expertise with a client’s wants and needs—all within the context of a property’s unique situation—he has earned top honors for his work. As an Arizona native, Robinette has an innate appreciation for how to live in and with the desert environment and to see opportunities where others see problems. “We have been fortunate to experience steady growth that mirrors the amazing community we live in,” he says. “It also helps that we live in a place that is rugged, beautiful and offers a rich, ongoing well of influences and inspiration.”

CUTTING-EDGE CLASSICS

“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.

Groundbreaking Arizona design is a unique blend of traditional forms, contemporary functions, organic materials and innovative features firmly rooted in the stunning landscape. As president and second-generation owner of Scottsdale-based Salcito Custom Homes, Anthony Salcito inspires all of his award-winning homes with these assets and ideals. “Since 1978, we have been setting the standard in luxury custom home construction,” Salcito says. “Our projects are distinctly built with the highest quality materials and are unmistakable in their fit, finish and timelessness.” This high level of invariable excellence has won Salcito a number of repeat clients. “I am currently building a large-scale project in Paradise Valley for a family that we have built for six times,” Salcito shares. “That is the best feedback we could ever receive.”

AWARD-WINNING AESTHETICS

“In 2020, my personal home won our architect, PHX Architecture, a Luxe RED Award in the regional Classic/Traditional Architecture category. It was also featured in the January/ February 2020 Arizona issue of Luxe Interiors + Design, and my wife Rebecca designed the interiors. I think our home is a great represen-

tation of our design aesthetic—comfortable, hip and modern with touches of timeless luxury,” Salcito says. “As the head of Salcito Design Group, Rebecca specializes in opulent fixtures and finishes and custom pieces that make each environment feel unique. Her style perfectly complements the homes we build.”

“Built on a family heritage that spans five decades, Salcito Custom Homes is guided by steadfast values and commitment to community.”

SUMMIT

Innovation, quality and collaboration are important ingredients in epic Arizona design. Enter Brenda and Patrick “PJ” Gruetzmacher and their award-winning team at Summit Automation who’ve been creating and installing custom automated doors for their discerning clientele since 2014. “We are proud to be an Arizona company that is ‘Bringing Doors to Life!’” Brenda says. “We do so by automating multi-slide and pivot doors—and now, windows and skylights—elegantly.” One of Summit’s most impressive assets is their ability to work on a large scale. “We recently automated one of the biggest homes in North Scottsdale’s Silverleaf neighborhood with eight multi-slides as well as a pivot door at the front entrance,” PJ shares. “The home’s amazing views called for extremely large openings, and with large doors comes heavy panels, so automating them made perfect sense both aesthetically and functionally.”

AUTOMATING ARIZONA

• Describe the current state of Arizona design.

Arizona’s unique scenery allows architects and designers to create on a great canvas, which inspires our work in many exciting ways.

• What are your top client musts right now?

We are seeing a trend in cornerless 90-degree door systems as well as pocketing pass-through windows that provide a seamless indooroutdoor living experience. Recently, a homeowner asked to couple a pass-through window design with a retractable door where the jam is physically attached to the leading edge of the window, thus creating no view obstructions when both are open.

Top With a simple press of a button or voice command the elegant opening of an incredible door system is accomplished, elevating today’s indoor-outdoor lifestyles. Right, Center & Far right Expanding the kitchen means merely pressing a button and the window panels retract into a pocket allowing for full access to outdoor food prep and entertaining spaces.

“Our company values are client-focused and our goal is to exceed their wants and needs with exceptional results.”

Architecture that takes its cues from the land it’s built on, the environment it inhabits and the lifestyles of the people who live, work and play there is the very definition of epic design. For more than 15 years, Mark A. Tate, AIA, and his award-winning team at Tate Studio Architects have been designing noteworthy homes that elevate their clients’ lives while enriching the environment around them. “Although many of our projects would be classified as desert modern, we don’t see our work as fitting a specific style,” Tate says. “We take inspiration from the land and our clients, letting them drive the design. We then incorporate each property’s unique amenities, such as sun orientation, landforms and views, and then consider our clients’ wishes and goals about how they want to live in their homes. The result is one-of-a-kind spaces that are completely and uniquely theirs.”

ARIZONA’S INFLUENCE

• Describe how your studio’s location stimulates your creativity.

Being in Cave Creek provides us with awe-inspiring views of the mountains and of storms that roll by just outside our windows, as well as the exhilarating sound of water rushing down the wash during the rainy season.

• How do traditional arts and local craftspeople influence your work?

We partner with an extensive network of artisans and craftspeople on all of our projects. Creating with other creatives is not only satisfying, but through those collaborations we gain invaluable knowledge and inspiration.

• Share an Arizona site, location or monument that inspires you. I always go back to the ancestral pueblos of Arizona. Wupatki National Monument is one of my favorite sites because of its ancient pueblos, pit houses, kivas and ballcourts. All of these beautiful structures were built by hand using local red rock and soil.

Top Floor-to-ceiling windows flood this primary bath with natural light while framing priceless views of Pinnacle Peak. Right Natural landforms, boulders and trees create privacy beyond patio, where beautiful specimen plants and grand statuary take center stage.

“Each and every project provides us with a unique opportunity to forge something that has never been done before.”

There’s an undeniable romance to the open road, horizons beckoning with the promise of novel experiences. Such travels led one East Coast couple to a new winter abode in Paradise Valley following a cross-country trip via Airstream. Arizona was supposed to be just one more stop on their adventurous itinerary, “but when we got here, I said, ‘I think we have to look for a house,’ ” recalls the husband. “We fell in love with the warm weather and the architecture. And I’d never seen a more beautiful sky. When the sun sets behind Camelback Mountain, the sky lights up in these stunning oranges and purples.”

This vision became concrete when the couple found a modern Paradise Valley residence created by architect Susan Biegner and brought to life with general contractor Luke Wilson as well as landscape designer Jeff Berghoff. The rectilinear structure featured an H-shaped layout and broad expanses of glass that strategically framed mountain views, especially the marquee Camelback Mountain vista that unfolds through the great room’s sliding doors. Interior finishes brought in by designer Katy Schuman of Bohemy Houz created a rich canvas of warm oak floors and built-in cabinetry alongside concrete brick in a creamy sun-bleached hue. “This home serves as a backdrop for living within the landscape,” Biegner explains. “When the sunlight travels throughout the day, you experience the changing tones and textures.”

For the interiors, “they really wanted to embrace Arizona,” says designer Jillian Bader, whom the couple brought on to flesh out the furnishings and decor. The wife was already a fan of Bader’s distinctly organic approach to contemporary desert living, which captured what the couple hoped for in their future abode. “Southwest design and culture are really important to us, so it was fun to have a client who wanted to lean into that,” Bader adds.

Taking the reins as the project’s lead designer, Misha West embraced this atmospheric quality, favoring patinated additions that would reflect the desert’s warmth. “The Southwest is all about natural materials, blending different wood tones with unlacquered brass and earthenware,” West

notes. “All of those elements tell the story of the desert landscape without being so literal.” This tonal palette filters through every corner of the dwelling, from the diverse ceramic collection to the burnished accent walls plastered in Roman clay that “give this subtle bit of movement,” Bader explains.

Honoring Biegner’s streamlined architectural envelope, West opted for furnishings with simplified forms, like the elongated dining table and the living area’s high-back armchairs. But she selected silhouettes that leaned toward a gentle curve—a sloped armrest, a tapered leg. “In a more modern home, we always want to find pieces that round out the space for warmth and livability,” West says. White oak, walnut and rattan further soften any sharp edges, alongside decadent upholstery of supple leather, natural linen, chenille and shearling. Couched in comfort, these pieces carve out dynamic areas in the open-concept great room—shifting from the sprawling living area ideal for large parties to the more meditative morning-coffee alcove encircled by snowy bouclé chairs.

Alongside these contemporary designs, West brought in vintage finds marked by textures that could only be produced by the passage of time. “Misha travels all over throughout the year to source unique pieces,” Bader explains. As such, rooms are layered with a trove of vintage rugs, antique pottery, throw pillows made from reclaimed textiles, and salvaged furniture, including the dining room’s hutch with its authentically chipped and weathered wooden surface marking generations of use. “For every modern item, we believe that you need to bring something warm, and it’s easy to do that with vintage pieces,” West says. Nostalgic photographs of local landmarks and landscapes are also peppered throughout, “paying homage to an earlier Arizona, back to a time when it was cowboy country,” Bader notes.

These details quickly made the abode a beloved destination for the couple’s family and friends seeking their own desert escape. “We get a lot of calls from people wanting to come visit,” the husband chuckles. “This home has become a landing spot.” Indeed, it’s hard to resist a place so infused with the desert and, as the husband notes, “waking every morning to the crisp, fresh sunshine and that breathtaking view of Camelback.”

Interior Design: Jennifer Ferrandi, NoMad Design

For some people, the allure of home is just too strong. After being based in New York City and vacationing in Cape Cod for years, one couple began to feel the pull of their Arizona roots. Wanting to close the distance from their elderly family members, they decided they needed an abode in their home state.

They found that roost—a charming dwelling designed by revered Arizona architect Bennie Gonzales with irresistible views of Camelback Mountain—in Paradise Valley. “We fell in love with the house because of its perfect location, beautiful architectural style and the unbelievable views of the mountain,” the wife says. Also appealing was that it felt like a blend of their two lives. “It was probably an older residence by local standards, but we loved that because it reminded us of the Arizona we had left,” the wife explains. “But it also had very modern touches, and, because of our life in New York, we appreciated that.”

Fortunately, the structure was already in good shape architecturally, so the couple enlisted designer Jennifer Ferrandi to make it feel like home and imbue the dwelling with a sense of place that embodied the desert the owners had missed so much. “I wanted to create a space where we could convene with our family,” the wife says. “And have beautiful pieces that are comfortable, beautiful and transitional that reflect Arizona style but also our modern life.”

That meant finding pieces that would make the residence just as welcoming to the couple’s beloved dogs as to their family and friends. “She didn’t want anything that required extra care or could break easily,” Ferrandi says of the wife. “She wanted guests to be able to enjoy themselves and kick their feet up on the table

without worrying.” As the owners preferred a light, white color palette, Ferrandi brought in a wealth of performance fabrics and durable surfaces that could be easily cleaned. To evoke a calm, serene ambience, the designer turned to creams, taupes and tans with black and brown accents as well as varied textures, like nubby linen, to add visual interest. “It was pretty easy to keep things quiet and neutral because the wife didn’t want any loud patterns,” Ferrandi says. “She was looking for something peaceful, so we just tried to make it very organic and let the mountain shine in the background.”

Most of the public spaces are tucked into a long great room on one side of the house, so the designer looked for ways to break it up into individual sections. She moved the dining area from its original location at one end to the center, where it now delineates between the casual family space and the more “adult” living zone around the fireplace. But wherever guests choose to mingle, windows running the length of the room ensure no one is deprived of the view. “I think that the long room is stunning from every angle,” Ferrandi says. “It lets the landscape just be front and center without taking attention away from it.”

In the corner of the primary bedroom, a small fireplace that was part of the original structure turned out to be the perfect touch. Not only does it serve as the ideal spot for the couple to sit together drinking their morning coffee, but it also feels quite nostalgic. “I grew up with little fireplaces like that—they’re found in a lot of Southwestern homes,” the wife says.

Given that the couple didn’t see the house in person until it was almost finished, it’s only natural that the designer might have felt a little nervous at the reveal, but there was nothing to worry about. “I think it turned out exactly how they were envisioning,” Ferrandi says. “Just a quiet oasis in the desert.”

BODY ART

Monica Aissa Martinez melds creativity and anatomy to get to the heart of her subjects.

In addition to the expected pigments, canvases and paintbrushes, the studio of Phoenix-based artist Monica Aissa Martinez is also chock-full of anatomy books and science journals— all overseen by a full-size skeleton. Martinez, who holds an MFA in drawing and printmaking, is more focused on what lies beneath the surface of the skin than what can be seen with the naked eye.

Martinez’s current artistic journey was sparked during an intensive yoga program over a decade ago. Sketching anatomical forms in her notebook as her teacher described them, she turned the drawings into detailed studies that became the building blocks for her large-scale body portraits. “It was life changing to realize I could tell intricate stories about people by using their physiology as a jumping-off point,” she says.

Her paintings are a kind of magical realist biography—a fusion of the literal, metaphorical and spiritual. Organs,

muscles, nerves and connective tissue are depicted both within the body and floating outside of it. Chakra systems are underlaid on some compositions. And specific cells— from, say, the placenta or frontal cortex— are blown up and painted as they appear under a microscope, taking on the aspect of flowers or other organic forms.

Whether working on canvas, paper, mylar or repurposed wood, Martinez first applies a backdrop of color with nontoxic casein—further refining her canvas works with an egg tempera—then outlining the figure with graphite. Next, she draws in the skeletal structure, organs and muscles.

“By the time I’m done, you won’t see the sternum or backbone, but the skeleton is critical scaffolding,” Martinez says. And finally, she paints in layers of anatomical data, eventually filling up the entire surface.

“The Victorians called it horror vacui: fear of empty spaces,” the artist explains. “Given my Latina heritage, I’m also mindful of Aztec art—the cave paintings and sundials— where every inch is covered.”

Among Martinez’s early subjects were her parents, Elisa and Roberto. During the process, Martinez learned her mother had suffered a miscarriage, so she included seven fertilized eggs in her painting— one of which is set apart. Roberto was a psychologist who loved science, philosophy and history. “As he developed Alzheimer’s, I saw that bright intellect slowly fade,” the artist says, explaining her immersion in research at a brain bank that studies dementia. Martinez responded with a series of small-scale neurons and glia she calls “Constellation”—the name inspired by hearing a scientist compare brain cells to the Milky Way and being awed by the night sky during a rafting trip in the Grand Canyon.

Martinez approaches all of her paintings with fearless curiosity and profound empathy. “Starting at a cellular level, I want to use my art to describe a person in all their beautiful humanity,” she says. “And in the process, hopefully make something for all humankind.”

Monica Aissa Martinez’s paintings—such as Mapping a Living Organism / Human Cell - City of Phoenix (opposite, left), her “Constellation” series (opposite, center) and Self-Portrait - Body Female (opposite, right) —and drawings, including one of DNA (below), explore the body’s inner workings. She keeps small models (left), anatomy books and science journals as references.

NEUTRAL TERRITORY

Differing design sensibilities come together in a modern abode that nods to the landscape.

LUXESOURCE.COM 245

It’s challenging enough to craft a new home that speaks to its surrounding neighborhood of midcentury dwellings while simultaneously embracing the natural environment. But one that also blends the clients’ dueling styles—one Tuscan, the other Scandinavian—and adheres to local height restrictions meant to preserve mountain views? That’s a situation in need of a well-oiled team.

Designer Kaitlyn Wolfe, architect William Gansline and general contractor Landon Mondragon were more than willing to rise to the challenge to create a contemporary residence for a cosmopolitan couple in Paradise Valley. One of the first new houses built since the neighborhood was developed in the 1960s, the exterior materials played an important role in creating a sense of belonging. Clad with stucco and rust-colored porcelain tile accented by jet-black steel, the dwelling echoes and enhances the scenic desert landscape at the base of Camelback Mountain. “We wanted it to communicate with the environment,” Wolfe says. “That dialogue makes the home feel calm.”

Gansline strove to imbue the structure with an expansive feeling while still working within height restrictions. “We incorporated skylights to flood the interiors with natural light and created a wall of glass doors in the living room that pocket into the wall,” he says. “It provides this indooroutdoor feeling.”

To balance the design leanings of both the husband, who formerly lived in an ornate Tuscan-style abode with darker wood tones, and the wife, who prefers a minimalist aesthetic, Wolfe turned to neutral shades. Concrete, steel and white oak play nicely with earthy browns, each component carefully considered. “It’s one thing to choose a variety of materials,” Mondragon notes. “But to have them work together is difficult. They nailed it.” The simple, streamlined furnishings the wife favored worked perfectly among the mix of wood, stone and metal. “I think the magic was bringing in midcentury pieces and lighting while still using some warmer tones and textures,” Wolfe muses.

Though the designer selected a neutral palette, the dwelling is anything but boring. In the kitchen, a sand-colored, three-dimensional tile backsplash

plays off the simple taupe cabinetry. In contrast to the gray perimeter countertops, the island sports a white quartz with brown, gold and gray veining. “It’s a statement piece,” Wolfe says.

As is the dual-sided fireplace between the kitchen and living areas. Composed of textural black marble and hot-rolled steel, it separates the spaces without compromising flow. On the far wall, a built-in Macassar ebony bar with a cork wallpaper backsplash and polished quartz countertop adds to the drama.

The subtle color scheme extends into the primary bedroom, where gray plaster walls add dimension to the well-lit space. A pair of elegant black pendants with gold-leaf accents create glowing pools of light. The guest suite, by contrast, is rendered in white with a wall of drapery hanging behind the bed adding an ethereal quality. To ensure the room still relates to the rest of the home, Wolfe punctuated it with bronze-framed pendants and dark side tables.

The bathrooms are equally resplendent. The primary en suite features terrazzo-like porcelain, the large-format floor tile transitioning to a mosaic in the shower. A darker tile reminiscent of black marble surrounds the tub “just to give a little contrast,” Wolfe says. In a guest bath, a black tile-clad shower juxtaposes white oak cabinetry outfitted with a concrete backsplash and countertop. “You can move any finish to any part of the home, and it would still look good,” the designer notes. “It feels very intentional.”

That’s also the case for the exterior by landscape architect Philip Van Wyck, who incorporated a mix of desert and Mediterranean plants, such as yuccas, agave and cacti. A monolithic fountain in front of the residence, which sits relatively close to the street, provides a screen from passersby. “The gentle sounds of the water help create a sense of calm—something we all need,” Van Wyck says.

Another fountain elevates the backyard, which features areas for living and dining, including a counter-height bar that faces Camelback. It was a fantastic setting for the dinner the owners held for the team after the culmination of the project— just one of many gatherings they have hosted, entertaining guests nearly every weekend since moving into their new abode. “They rave about it,” Wolfe says. “That’s all I can ask for.”
