LETTER EDITOR’S

One of the great pleasures of editing this publication is being habitually exposed to design from across the country—an endless array of styles, influences, penchants and the like. In any given week, I review some three dozen homes from more than 15 cities. It’s an abundance to see, and to weigh in on. The weekly parade of living rooms and gardens, kitchens and closets, laundry rooms and bedrooms gives me a wonderful perch from which to view American design. If you asked what I’ve observed lately, I would say it’s exuberance. I’ve spotted elation expressed subtlety with tone-on-tone interiors, and conversely, seen it pronounced with heaps of whimsy and sparkle in vibrant wallpapers, glossy walls and astonishing lighting. What these homes, and the people living in them, are conveying is their taste and joyfulness. Aren’t we all fortunate to delight in the mix?

A LA CARTE MAKOTO

BENTLEY RESIDENCES

Known for its sleek, high-performance cars, prestigious automobile brand Bentley Motors moves into the fast lane with its first residential complex: Bentley Residences. Set to rise from the shores of Sunny Isles Beach in 2026, the 70-story building will be the tallest residential tower on the U.S. coastline. Bentley worked closely with Sieger Suarez Architects and Dezer Development to shape the exquisitely designed building. Its exterior will sparkle with diamond-shaped glass panels that refract light, and those same diamond motifs (a Bentley signature) are to be repeated throughout. Apartments will come with Italianmade Bentley Home furniture pieces along with a private balcony pool, sauna and outdoor shower. “It’s being built with luxury car owners in mind, and our patented drive-in elevator allows owners to park their car, on display, right outside their home—the ultimate statement of exclusivity,” says Gil Dezer of Dezer Development. Amenities will include a cinema, whiskey bar and cigar lounge, a wellness center and spa, and an on-site private restaurant. bentleyresidencesmiami.com

BLUEPRINT

Helmed by renowned Chef Makoto Okuwa, Makoto restaurant recently reopened with an upgraded location in the Bal Harbour Shops and a new look by Paris-based architect and designer India Mahdavi. Patrons are welcomed into the chic space, which feels like entering a garden fete thanks to its flora-motif wallcoverings, chandeliers blooming with flower-shaped lights and soft color palette of coral, saffron and sandalwood. Void of sharp corners, the restaurant further accentuates its ethereal feeling through tables and doorways with rounded edges. The outdoor terrace is another happy spot with nostalgic 1930s chairs covered in botanical patterns. For Mahdavi, Makoto is cross-cultural, calling together a French brasserie, Japanese restaurant and American diner under one roof. “I wanted to redefine the Japanese restaurant typology at the crossroads of cultures that were relevant to this location,”

AERIN The Miami Design District is now home to Aerin Lauder’s fourth retail store. French interior designer Jacques Grange touched the airy, tropical-chic space with pops of color and greenery. Standout pieces include retro bamboo seating and a vibrant green linen sofa, which mingle with a vintage Portuguese console crowned with blue-and-white tiles by José Canudo. The store offers a curated assortment of beauty, home decor, entertaining, fashion and travel essentials that reflect Miami’s coastal influence. “It is filled with bright florals, raffia textures and beach-inspired home accessories,” says Lauder, “perfect for sunny days and magical city nights.” aerin.com

BRITTANY BROMLEY INTERIORS

CALLIDUS HOME & DECOR It’s a beautiful new beginning for designer Katherine Shenaman, whose retail boutique, Callidus Home & Decor, now has a prominent location on the bottom floor of the historic Palm Beach Hotel. The space offers a cozy retreat to shop unique items—candles from California, diffusers from Mexico, lamps from London, shatter-resistant wine glasses and decanters from Turkey—or garner interior design services from Katherine Shenaman Interiors. “I do the buying myself; it’s a combination of items I find at shows or when I travel,” she says. “We cater to both a modern and traditional clientele, so we seek to provide accessories and home accents that complement all interiors.” callidushome.com

MALLY SKOK DESIGN Tucked away in Palm Beach’s Via Bice, you’ll find interior and textile designer Mally Skok’s new studio—affectionately nicknamed “The Sunny Spot Deux,” after her room in the 2021 Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach. The cheerful space boasts colorful textiles hanging side by side so clients can touch, feel and see combinations as well as art sourced locally and from across the country. The studio also serves as a rotating incubator for brand collaborations. “It’s a visual image of how my design mind works,” Skok says. “When a person steps inside, they can instantly understand that I like layered, colorful, interesting and fearless designs.” mallyskokdesign.com

Designer Brittany Bromley recently opened a retail space on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Wander the store to discover candles, Assouline books, custom and antique upholstery pieces, accessories and art. The swoon-worthy shop—showcasing a painted floor, chinoiserie hand-painted wallpaper and de Gournay silver-leaf wallcovering—is broken into three sections. “We were inspired by the idea of creating distinct areas, all of which would display our various design styles, each unique yet consistent in that all feel considered, layered and eclectic,” Bromley says. bbromleyinteriors.com

TALKING SHOP PIETRA CASA

SCENE

DESIGN

A culmination of seven years exploring the globe, residential designer Peter Oleck’s new showroom in Coconut Grove flaunts an exquisite collection of home accessories, materials, lighting and architectural elements that can’t be found anywhere else. pietra-casa.com Why did you decide to open Pietra Casa? After years designing projects like the Mondrian South Beach Hotel and homes from Golden Beach to Harbor Island, I wanted to create a space that offers specialty goods for luxury homes, hotels and restaurants. Teaming up with Turkish designer Furkan Tan, we’re creating new

bespoke pieces and a furniture line called Carbon Studio. In this world of fast-paced mass-production, we want to bring back a sense artisanal manufacturing and products that are driven by authenticity and quality. What sets your shop apart? Our goal is to showcase objects from all over the world that aren’t widely represented in North America: European furnishings, volcanic light fixtures from Mexico, Italian hand-stitched leather trays, mouth-blown German glass, Turkish linens and more. What’s next for you? Pietra Casa offers an immense array of products, and it’s impossible to feature everything. So, we expect to open new locations in Los Angeles, New York and Istanbul that continue creating this true sense of luxury living.

PGA NATIONAL RESORT

THE BOCA RATON

Nostalgia is the theme at the newly overhauled PGA National Resort. Evoking Palm Beach in the 1960s, its lobby vaunts two chandeliers resembling upside-down palm leaves and ’60s-style furnishings that include a semi-circle sofa and retro chairs in various hues and patterns. The space’s centerpiece is the bar, illuminated at its core by a massive replica of a banyan tree featuring more than 1,500 LED lights inspired by the grand trees found in Palm Beach Gardens. Rooms and suites by KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group boast Montague wingback headboards, walls swathed in black-and-white palm-leaf wallpaper and plush area rugs, and all offer an outdoor lounge. pgaresort.com

The Boca Raton, formerly the Boca Resort, offers a retreat teeming with oldschool glamour and modern luxury. The once-pink-hued hotel now recalls its 1920s roots with a coastal-white façade mimicking its original design by acclaimed architect Addison Mizner. Showcasing an epic makeover, with much of the interiors by Rockwell Group, the 200-acre resort features five distinct hotels accommodating every vacation style. Dreamy design standouts include Palm Court (a European cocktail lounge) and The Flamingo Grill, where a mural of hand-painted tile stuns. Wander the sprawling property to uncover original details such as arched windows, ornate marble columns and rooflines dotted with finials and spires. thebocaraton.com

For over six decades, artist Francis X. Pavy has been keenly observing his South Louisiana surroundings. The region’s unique landscape and rich Cajun culture have been driving forces behind the narrative—and iconography—of his vibrant paintings. “I’m intrigued by the complexity of life here,” says Pavy, who’s been working out of his suburban Lafayette studio for 40 years. “It has depth and meaning; there is a story to be told.” Now, Pavy is drawing on imagery from his vast body of artwork for a debut line of textiles and wallcoverings.

Marshgrass, a block print featuring small vertical lines rising from a horizontal base. He first noticed the symbol, which is used to designate marshland on a map, in a geologist’s office as a child. “I didn’t consciously say, ‘I need to remember this,’ but it became a part of an inner visual vocabulary that I filed away in my brain.” Then there is Briars, a creeping branch-like design inspired by thorny plants of the same name. As a teenager, Pavy watched as the sun illuminated a cluster growing in an empty field. “Sometimes, imagery makes a burning impression in my memory,” he says. “Or it comes back to me in a flash.” The artist, who teamed up with his wife to bring the line to fruition, is also using this opportunity to develop new

motifs, one of which portrays coastal Louisiana’s delicate ecosystem. In Stormy Waters, Pavy depicts “flora and fauna overcome by storm water.” They adorn the fabric alongside iconography of a man with his dog and a small telephone pole symbolizing “the edge of civilization.” This narrative is inspired by the state’s historic flood, in 2016, and devastation the artist witnessed firsthand. “I’m interpreting what I see in Louisiana,” he explains. “We have our own identity in food, speech and music. So why shouldn’t we have our own unique identity in art?” shop.pavy.com

LEADING MAKERS IN THE DESIGN WORLD DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE OF ART AND CRAFT SCHOOLS, AND WHY NOW MAY BE THE TIME TO ENROLL. W R I T T E N BY M A I L E P I N G E L

Over the past several years, many people have spent time getting in touch with their creative side. As a result, an exploration, and revival, of craft—think pottery, woodworking and painting—has led to a renewed interest in arts educational programs. Several highly acclaimed schools across the country offer dynamic workshops and degrees, allowing students to spend years honing in on a specialized area of study or simply attend classes to become better

acquainted with a new interest. Who better to weigh in on the merits of a formal education than three celebrated alums: glass artist Dale Chihuly on Haystack Mountain School of Crafts; industrial designer Jay Sae Jung Oh on Cranbrook Academy of Art; and glass artist and painter Corey Pemberton on Penland School of Craft. Their success stories not only bolster the legacies of these unique institutions but serve as inspiration for the next generation of makers.

For Oh, Cranbrook’s broad-thinking approach lured her from Seoul to the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, campus. “Their industrial design program lets you focus on your interests,” she explains. “The historical buildings, the environment—students from other majors like architecture, engineering, even anthropology—was fascinating to me.” This influx of varying viewpoints intensified her creativity, and she quickly garnered the attention of design pioneer Gaetano Pesce, who offered her an internship and job opportunity after graduation. While now focused on her successful eponymous firm, Oh finds guest-lecturing at her alma mater a symbiotic relationship. “I like the engagement,” she says. “I get to see what students are interested in, and who they think the rock stars of design are today.” While studying graphic design at Virginia Commonwealth University, Los Angelesbased Pemberton developed an interest in glassmaking that led him to a summer

program at Penland in North Carolina. “My hand skills improved so much that the instructor offered me a job,” he recalls. Pemberton went on to assistantships and residencies, returning to Penland for a coveted two-year fellowship where he augmented glassmaking with painting and other artforms. Today, Pemberton continues to remain busy, dividing his time between glassmaking and painting practices; an upcoming teaching stint at Haystack this summer; and serving as Director of Crafting the Future, a program creating more equitable opportunities for BIPOC students interested in the arts. “Craft schools are immersive and less formal than the collegiate route,” he says. “I’m a huge advocate [of them] and know how much you can learn.”

Regarded as one of the founding fathers of contemporary American craft, Chihuly studied glass making at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Upon graduating, he enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design where he received an MFA and taught for many years. Throughout his tenure, Chihuly spent summers teaching at Haystack in Deer Isle, Maine, during which time he realized “artists teaching artists is vital to helping students find their own path.” Founded in 1950, the school was considered experimental because it had no permanent faculty, nor did it offer degrees. Remaining true to its roots, Haystack’s workshops and residencies are still taught by visiting faculty and remain sought-after programs today. Chihuly credits Haystack with influencing him to cofound Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, and, while no longer teaching, he continues to encourage “students to surround themselves with other artists. Watch how they live, not just how they work.”



UKRAINE’S GUNIA PROJECT SHINES A LIGHT ON THE COUNTRY’S LONG-STANDING CRAFT TRADITION. W R I T T E N BY M I C H E L L E B R U N N E R

In folk art, every brush stroke and every stitch tells a story, and when those crafts are lost to time, so too is a piece of history. It’s a reality that Natasha Kamenska and Maria Gavryliuk, founders of the Gunia Project, know all too well. “Handmade items have always been at the heart of Ukrainian life, yet few people pass on the beauty of this national culture to their children,” says Gavryliuk. In 2017, while volunteering at the Ivan Honchar Museum’s National Centre of Folk Culture in Kyiv, both women began to wonder why younger generations had forgotten folk crafts integral to their heritage. It sparked an idea: Form a collective of artists dedicated to producing Ukrainian crafts for a new audience using the traditional, timeworn skills of their ancestors.

LUXESOURCE.COM

Ceramic plates available through Ukraine’s Gunia Project depict religious and folk motifs from the country’s rich artistic history.

The duo embarked on a quest to find artisans, traveling throughout Ukrainian villages to seek out craftspeople by word of mouth. At a market in the town of Yavoriv, they encountered a gunya, a handmade sheep’s wool coat that serves as a talisman-like garment used during major life events. Finding inspiration in the object, they christened the company Gunia Project in 2019. Handmade items sold through the collective include fiber arts, glass and jewelry, in addition to a large inventory of painted ceramics featuring playful takes on folk-art motifs and religious themes. Many of the pieces sport images of saints and angels that loom large in Ukrainian faith and lore (their ceramic production

began with a single artist who happened to be trained as an icon painter). While the artistic sensibility of these pieces feels modern and fresh, the subject matter is timeless and deeply ingrained in the national identity. For Gavryliuk and Kamenska, preserving Ukrainian culture for future generations has acquired even more significance as of late. “With the war at our doors, we know that our culture needs to be preserved and cherished,” says Gavryliuk. “Art is so closely intertwined with history that destroying folk crafts destroys our cultural heritage, and the country as a whole,” adds Kamenska. guniaproject.com, thenopo.com

Find & Seek TODD NICKEY, THE DESIGNER AND PROPRIETOR BEHIND LOS ANGELES’ NICKEY KEHOE, DISHES ON THE THRILL—AND IMPORTANCE—OF THE HUNT.

Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe seek out beautiful pieces for design projects as well as their Los Angeles shop from flea markets, antique fairs and the like. Shown here is one such find: a vintage carved-wood entry door.

LUXESOURCE.COM

My partner Amy Kehoe and I have built our lives around being out in the world— at craft fairs, art shows, antique fairs and even flea markets—unearthing sources of inspiration. Although I enjoy searching for things online, it’s important for us to touch and feel objects. There’s only so much you can see about patina, texture and scale on a screen! We met a young woman, just out of art school, at a craft show a few years ago, and she was making beautiful sculptures and serveware from wood. I don’t want to sound too ‘woo-woo,’ but when she invited us to pick up her work, I could feel the energy she put into making it. The way she sands her pieces gives them a unique surface, something that’s impossible to manufacture. It’s exhilarating to meet people who are passionate about creating and making. Hunting and shopping in person is also where kismet happens. At times, I almost feel like a water witch with a divining rod because something just draws me to a piece—I find what I love by clearing my mind and exploring. I recently discovered a forged-iron company that makes the most extraordinary pieces and when I first saw them, I got jelly belly for a few minutes because it was such a thrill. This is an era where appreciation for art and craft is growing, and we are embracing it on all levels, from crude to posh and fancy. The importance of handmade goods can’t be overstated—it’s fundamental; it’s everything. nickeykehoe.com

Common Threads KYLE BUNTING RETURNS TO HIS ROOTS WITH AN AMERICANA-INSPIRED COLLECTION. For hide rug designer Kyle Bunting, family has always been at the core of his work. Take, for example, the Austinbased creatives lauded range of rugs, wall coverings and home accessories, which incorporate methods passed down from his father Jim, who owned a hide art and furniture company. Bunting’s inventive take on these techniques ultimately led to his eponymous empire of beautiful yet functional décor objects for the home. Now, more than two decades since getting his start, Bunting’s work is once again being shaped by those near and dear. This time around, Bunting looked to his mother, Peggy, and her longstanding passion for quilting as inspiration for his latest collection, Stateside. Playing off the striking patterns and graphic geometry of these traditional American textiles, the colorful new rug designs fuse the handiwork of both parents—all with Bunting’s signature spin. Each floor covering is created from pieced-together scraps, culled from repurposed hide cuttings and excess material collected during production. What’s more, the collaboration also presents an opportunity to spotlight an unsung artform. Women like Peggy, and her family, have looked to quilting as a means of expression, love and practicality for centuries. “One of my most prized quilts was my grandmother’s,” she explains. “This handmade heirloom was crafted 65 years ago, and it’s evident that each stitch was painstakingly, and thoughtfully, made.” It is the Buntings’ hope that these modern interpretations may also become treasured keepsakes and serve as timeless reminders of the historical fabric that connects families from one generation to the next. kylebunting.com

“For Lutron, light is energy; light is mood; light is a narrator of time.”

SYMPHONY OF LIGHT When Lutron’s innovative designs are involved, the home is more than just illuminated; it’s reinvented. •T unable lamps and luminaires restore the romance of candlelight and synchronize with the sun to dissolve the boundary between natural and built environments. •W hisper-quiet, automatic shades act as a natural extension to the light control system, balancing access to sunlight with sanctuary from it. •E very system is custom-designed and integrated by an expert to reflect the habits, preferences and personality of the end user, ensuring that whole-home control is more than intuitive—it’s second nature.

WORK WITH NATURE Among Lutron’s top tips is to design with the light, not against it. “Think of moonlight, sunrise, light-filtered green through trees, late-night embers in a dying fire— each moment is a canvas, and light is what soaks that canvas with color and feeling,” the team says. “Blend indoor and outdoor lighting with intention to match your mood and cultivate well-being.”

WINNING STREAK

When interior designer Summer Thornton’s Dallas client asked for a marble primary bath, she took the request to heart, sheathing the space in not one, but three different types: Arabescato Corchia in large-format slabs; Grey Lilac on the sink vanities; and Calacatta Viola for the makeup vanity, casings and windowsills. “It was quite the puzzle to install, but the nuance adds depth and interest,” says the Chicago-based designer. “The accent marbles are powerful, without being jarring. We were drawn to both the lilac shade as well as the Calacatta Viola’s plum tones.” All three stones also make an appearance on the floor, where they are carefully laid out in a “Mondrian-esque

pattern” in conjunction with strategically placed textured metallic tiles. The latter, along with a polished-nickel soaking tub and an antique wall mirror, bring additional light into the space. “There’s only one window, so these reflective surfaces bounce light around the room, making it feel twice as large,” notes Thornton. The metallic fittings and accents were also chosen to help add warmth, which is important in all-stone baths that can sometimes come across as cold. To further encourage an inviting atmosphere, Thornton selected cerused-oak wooden cabinetry and a tactile wicker vanity chair to complete the stunning scheme. summerthorntondesign.com

For the primary bath of a landmarked Tudor residence in Dallas, designer Summer Thornton employed three different types of marble to achieve its dynamic appearance. Hammered German Silver tiles from Paris Ceramics offset marble flooring. The space is outfitted with a polished-nickel tub from Catchpole & Rye, fittings from Waterworks, Murano-glass vanity scones from Jean-Marc Fray and a Vaughan ceiling fixture.

MOODY MOMENT STUDIO LIFE/STYLE

Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl, the duo behind West Hollywood firm Studio Life/Style, approached this Los Angeles powder room with a sophisticated-yet-daring eye. “We knew early on that we wanted to use a stone with lots of movement and color for the custom vanity,” says Zwickl. The designers landed on Calacatta Viola marble, which features burgundy veining that pairs perfectly with a deep green plaster finish on the walls. Below, Zwickl dives into more detail. studio-lifestyle.com What was the inspiration behind the design? A powder room presents the perfect place to have a little fun! We were trying to create something moody with a touch of drama, and a dark color paired with striking stone always works well in small spaces.

Tell us about the wall treatment? A contrasting wall color can help bring out the stone’s natural tones. Here, we chose Portola Paints & Glazes’ Roman Clay in the Lone Park shade, which adds extra depth to the room and plays with the reflection of light. Lindsey Adelman scones and a Gio Ponti−style mirror complete the look.

Is the rest of the home this bold? This is one of the darkest rooms in the house, so it’s a bit of a departure. We like when the powder room serves as a little surprise for guests as they experience the home.

TURNING HEADS

Every jewel box needs some shimmer, and Kohler’s recently debuted Statement shower collection offers just the right amount of bling. The line contains four hand showers, two body sprays, four rain heads and an oval showerhead (shown in Vibrant Brushed Moderne Brass). The oval head—which is available in both 10-inch and 12-inch lengths—is designed to deliver a robust stream of water that simulates a soaking summer storm. Additional finishes include Polished Chrome, Vibrant Brushed Nickel and Matte Black. kohler.com

SUPER SOAKER

Drummonds tapped industrial designer Marc Newson to envision a collection of bath products that marries the company’s classic aesthetic with his penchant for sinuous shapes and sleek lines. Items range from shower controls to taps and mixers, but the star of the show is the Coln bathtub, which features elegant contours made from composite marble with customizable metal feet. drummonds-uk.com

CLEAN & CLEAR

Subtle details such as an arched ribbon spout and transparent lever handles give Brizo’s new Allaria Widespread Lavatory a cool, modern twist. Shown in Brilliance Luxe Gold/Clear, the streamlined faucet is available in seven additional finishes, along with the option of a square spout with knob or twist-lever handles. To complement this faucet, the collection includes tub fillers, shower components and coordinating hardware that is sure to deliver a sense of polish and effortless style to any bath. brizo.com

GOING GREEN LUXESOURCE.COM

Statement slabs are one of the most effective ways to transform a space. Therefore, when the owners of this Boise, Idaho, residence called upon designer Jordan Yankovich of KovichCo Interiors to revamp their primary bath, she doubled down on green-hued Scala marble. “This stone has so much personality, with large green pools that the clients loved,” says Yankovich. “Real stone always feels new and fresh because you’re constantly discovering different patterns in the veining.”

Maximizing natural light was important to the scheme, so the designer added a see-through gas fireplace which allows daylight to flow between the bath and bedroom. Copper, nickel, steel, bluestone and oak complement the marble and round out the room’s palette. “The client is a mining engineer, so these finishes are a nod to his profession,” notes Yankovich. “The materials are fancy, but they are used in a way that feels timeless and approachable.” kovichco.com

Limestone pavers flow through the entry (left), bathroom (below) and living-dining space (opposite), creating a timeless thread that welcomes sandy feet and muck boots alike.

EASY ELEGANCE

For designer Elizabeth Lawrence, a ground-up guest residence in Southampton provided a unique opportunity to bridge the old with the new. Building upon Georgian-influenced architecture by Michael Dwyer (largely inspired by Frances Elkins’ interiors), and led by her client’s appreciation for antiques, Lawrence began layering palette and pattern to imbue a sense of calm, collected sophistication to

the dwelling, which serves as a year-round getaway. The result reads “a bit like an English country home, but with a Southampton twist,” notes Lawrence. She kept the ethos of-a-place with choice details like subtly coastal paint colors custom-crafted by Donald Kaufman throughout, and a bespoke entry mural by Artgroove depicting the seaside town. “The mix of casual living in a formal setting is what makes this project so interesting,” muses the designer, pointing to the breezy spirit of the open-concept living-dining room—a pleasing contrast to the grand

architectural detailing. A similar dichotomy can be found in the surprising throughlines that lace together collections of wooden antiques, sumptuous, high-pile carpets and historically reverent textiles. Modern artworks and contemporary lighting are hallmarks of the design, and Lawrence’s artful placements— like an enormous Noguchi lantern above the dining table—typify the “Southampton twist” she endeavored to achieve at the outset. “At night, when that’s the only thing lit,” she notes, “it almost looks like the moon is hanging there.” bunnywilliams.com

WORLDS AWAY

LUXESOURCE.COM

When a couple’s search for a larger primary residence came up short, they abandoned the idea and turned to landscape architect John Howard to reconceive their existing Buckhead, Georgia, backyard instead. Crowning the greenspace, a potting shed designed by architect William B. Litchfield (an homage to Bunny Mellon’s folly at Oak Spring Farm), underscores the bucolic manner of the newly appointed oasis. Trellising strung with Madison jasmine and climbing roses “serves

as a transitional, unifying moment between the terraced lawn and surrounding woodlands,” notes Howard. In collaboration with Litchfield and interior designer Liza Bryan, he specified bluestone pavers, barnwood paneling and a soapstone sink for flower arranging. Happily, the clients purport to using the shed as a bar and serving area when entertaining, too, treating friends and family to all the charms of a pastoral soiree—from the convenience of Atlanta proper. howarddesignstudio.com

URBAN RESPITE

“We wanted to create a country house in the city,” shares Sara Gilbane of her clients’ Manhattan residence. Taking cues from a prolific collection of antiques and artworks, the designer set about capturing the spirit of the family’s ancestral Pennsylvania farmhouse in their newly purchased downtown apartment, which she transformed from austere white box to characterful flat alongside architect Gerard Beekman. Take the guest room, where, enveloped by a painterly Lewis & Wood wallpaper, Gilbane employed streamlined canopies to “cozy up” antique metal beds dressed in early American quilts. Or the entry hall, where the selection of tumbled stone flooring in a timeless black-and-white check lays the foundation for oil painting gallery walls and millwork painted a chalky hue that feels snatched from a country residence benefitting from centuries of patina. “We live in a world where so much is accessible and, in turn, so much is the same,” muses Gilbane. “That is in part why this ‘old with a twist’ aesthetic is resonating today— it’s just refreshing.” saragilbaneinteriors.com

Did you hire an architect

OR AN AIA ARCHITECT? MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS CREATE VALUE. No matter what kind of project you have in mind, you should speak with an architect who is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) at the earliest stage of the design process. Architects have the education, training, experience and vision to maximize your construction dollar and ease the entire design, and construction process.

ETHICS AIA architects must adhere to a high standard code of ethics and professional conduct.

EDUCATION

At the heart of every successful project is a strong relationship between client and architect. AIA architects know that the more knowledgeable their clients are, the more likely they are to fully participate in the process and enjoy the benefits of a collaborative effort.

AIA architects remain current with professional standards through continuing education requirements that exceed the standard of licensure. AIA architects go above and beyond to assure clients, the public, and colleagues of their dedication to high standards in professional practice.

COMMUNITY AIA architects form part of a vast nation-wide community of members whose shared passion set the standard for creativity, professionalism, and vision.

PUBLIC SAFETY Architects protect the health, safety, and welfare of Floridians.

David Scott

Joy Moyler

Young Huh

David Scott established his namesake firm, David Scott Interiors, with a belief that interiors should reflect the style and personality of their owner—not simply the designer. The natural connection a client has with their home drives each design, resulting in a portfolio of highly personal environments. With almost 30 years of experience, Scott has created diverse and artful designs in an array of styles for numerous clients. Visually stimulating yet supremely functional, Scott’s interiors gracefully meld the timeless elegance of the past with today’s modern aesthetic.

For interior designer Joy Moyler, fashion is a driving force behind her diverse body of work. Textiles, color and pattern seep into her projects, which are punctuated by bespoke details often found in haute couture. She developed a penchant for architecture after visiting Spain as a teenager. Enthralled by the light, color and textures of Madrid and Barcelona, she decided to pursue a Bachelor of Science in architecture. Moyler’s experience spans the globe and encompasses residential, retail, hospitality and commercial projects infused with local culture. Moyler’s portfolio also includes A-list celebrity residences, including Harry Winston’s Beverly Hills home.

A Detroit native, Young Huh received a law degree from Fordham University. While pursuing further education and an internship in interior design, Huh discovered her true calling and founded her New York City-based design firm in 2007. Resetting the design narrative for each project, Huh’s work is about finding harmony and dynamism through the application of classic and modern design principles. Thoughtful architectural details provide the groundwork for warm and welcoming interiors, each animated by sophisticated surface treatments, a singular play of pattern and color, as well as a touch of wanderlust.

Past Meets Present Through a sensitive renovation, a near-century-old residence embraces old and new. W R I T T E N BY J E N N I F E R B O L E S | P H O T O G R A P H Y B Y M A R K R O S K A M S

Architecture: Cesar Molina, CMA Design Studio Inc. Interior Design: Carola Pimentel, Assure Interiors Home Builder: Jose A. Ortega, CDC Builders, Inc. Landscape Architecture: Tyler Nielsen, Nielsen Landscape Architects


“The courtyard is the highlight of the house,” designer Carola Pimentel says. For a modern take on classic checkerboard flooring, she selected Prestigio’s Carrara and Marquinia floor tiles from Unique Surfaces Tile. Framing the front door are vintage Maison Jansen palm tree lamps.


T

he first time designer Carola Pimentel toured her clients’ prospective new residence, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. The 1925 property had been abandoned for decades, and the overgrown landscaping only added to its neglected appearance. Further complicating matters was the fact that to bring the Spanish Revival-style structure up to date, any renovation plans had to pass muster with the city’s historical board. “When it was built, it was an important house,” the wife explains, noting it was designed by prominent firm Kiehnel and Elliott. But none of these hurdles deterred the couple, who was drawn to the sizable lot located near relatives. The new owners sought to update the property to better accommodate their lifestyle with three young children. “My clients wanted to respect the existing architecture but also elevate it in a modern way,” explains Pimentel, who worked with architect Cesar Molina and general contractor Jose A. Ortega. Keeping the original part of the two-story structure intact, Molina’s renovation plan made only a few alterations to the 1920s architecture, the most notable being an expansive new window in the living room to bring light into the large space. Period interior details, such as the living room’s beamed ceiling and fireplace surround, were to be saved, while a new exterior stucco finish was specified to emulate the home’s ’20s-era façade. What had to change, however, was the interior layout, which was no longer convenient by today’s standards. A modern-looking addition was designed to house the kitchen, family room, laundry room and primary suite, while the original structure maintained the living and dining rooms, a new guest suite and the husband’s office. In what could be described as a flash of genius, the architect conceived the idea of enclosing the existing courtyard that stood between the two wings, creating a bright, vaulted space that bridges the gap between the existing and new architecture. Impressed by Molina’s design, the city’s historical board gave its approval.

To complement the renovation, landscape architect Tyler Nielsen offered a subdued palette of foliage such as Java white shrubs with a warm green tone, Bahama coffee plants and, edging the property, buttonwood hedges. “We wanted to ensure the design embraced and framed the house,” he says. “On the new addition, for example, we relied on massed trees that were more upright to give scale to the architecture. The clients didn’t want it to be too tropical, so we were restrained about our use of palm trees and opted for more shrubbery.” Inside, the owners desired classically elegant spaces that are family-friendly yet ideal for entertaining, informed by their time spent in Spain. “Madrid is very formal and colorful, but it’s also lively,” the wife explains. “As much as we love modern, we wanted to bring that piece of Madrid to Coconut Grove.” Pimentel portrayed this in moments such as a formal dining room with an abstract wallpapered ceiling, a dark gray office for the husband that mimics an English library and checkerboard flooring for the newly roofed courtyard. Yet nowhere is this concept more epitomized than the living room, where she arranged multiple seating areas for gatherings of varying sizes. Harnessing a “flair for mixing different periods from diverse provenances,” the designer describes, she re-covered the owners’ furnishings and procured new items from buying trips to Spain for an eclectic but coordinated assortment. Coexisting here are pieces such as a neutral-toned cotton sofa, antique brass side tables, a silk-and-bamboo rug and blush midcentury velvet armchairs. “It adds a luxurious feel,” Pimentel says of the latter materials. The color palette—neutral with shades of pink, hunter green, blue and tangerine— responds to the couple’s assortment of art, which consists of abstract Spanish works from the 1950s-80s. Post-renovation, the residence gives Pimentel a different outlook from when she first encountered it. “Our ultimate goal was to create serene, light-filled, functional interiors that incorporated the clients’ art collection, globally sourced antiques and contemporary design,” she reflects. The home’s history now carries on thanks to its noble restoration.

Pink 1950s armchairs mingle with a vintage chandelier, étagères and side tables in the living room. Pimentel used a Lee Jofa textile for the draperies, Romo linen for the custom bench and a Groundworks fabric for the armchairs near the fireplace. A Robicara coffee table and Tacchini sofa complete the scene.

Femme Fantasy

Using collaged elements and nostalgic objects, an artist examines themes of social constructs. W R I T T E N BY K H A D E JA H K H A N | P H O T O G R A P H Y B Y DA N C U T R O N A

ickie Pierre still possesses her childhood imagination. “I was really into fantasy at a young age, and I stayed in that state,” she says, recalling playing with dolls growing up in Brooklyn. This has served the multimedia Haitian-American artist well: Sentimental memories fuel her work, which consist of collages and assemblages that explore cultural identities, particularly characterizations of women. Pierre’s early creations consisted of fantastical paintings in tropical, pastel colors. But around 2016, she began transforming her acrylic pieces into collages using cutouts from gift wrap, wallpaper and magazines. These works are opposite of her paintings in not only method but also her dominant use of the color black, a nod to “Black femininity and the reclamation of Black bodies and my own individuality,” the artist acknowledges. The collaged elements mimic European decorative arts as well as ritualistic jewelry worn by indigenous women, such as nose rings, crowns and necklaces. “It’s about shape, form, beauty, adornment and whimsical playfulness, but it’s also inclusionary,” she observes. “It can represent so many things.” A dusting of glitter—speaking to gold gilt and its social connotation—is a finishing touch that recalls metallic toys from Pierre’s youth. But her greatest tribute to nostalgia are her assemblages, composed of vintage objects collected from her lifelong affair of thrifting: perfume bottles, wall plaques, figurines. Similar to the tchotchkes that once decorated her house, these make her think about “the passage of time and my childhood home,” she says. In her Fountainhead Studios workspace, Pierre paints each item a solid color, then uses an industrial glue to affix them to a panel, conceptualizing a proverbial princess on a pedestal. Strands of beads and doll hair physically link the objects and signify interconnectivity between ideas. “I’m investigating what issues of gender, race and age mean to me,” the artist explains. “I want it to look coordinated and beguiling, with a poetic and introspective underlying story.” Text occasionally underscores this point, and work titles are often informed by literature or music. “These forms are tied to history and my understanding of femininity,” Pierre says of her art. “It makes me feel like I’m contributing to a sense of globalism, respecting and preserving cultures that impact all of us.”

Flanked by metal and coral stone, steps on a water feature lead to the pivot wood front door. “We wanted the house to feel like it floats,” architect Stephanie Halfen says. Beau the goldendoodle eagerly awaits guests.

n South Florida, nature never remains static for long, veering from neon blue skies to sudden silvery showers in the blink of a lightning bolt. Architect Stephanie Halfen knows, at its very best, a contemporary home can harness these mercurial moods into something truly entrancing. One couple wanted nothing more than this when they recruited her and her husband, general contractor Ricardo Halfen, to design a modern residence that embraces the elements. “The challenge was to create an incredible oasis in which no matter where you are in the house, you are surrounded by beautiful views,” she explains. Cultivating an intimate indoor-outdoor relationship for this project required especially creative thinking, as the narrow lot overlooking a Miami waterway restricted opportunities to incorporate broad vistas. What’s more, the couple required an easily accessible, one-story structure for their young son and playful goldendoodle. In response, the architect conceived a modular design in an expansive H-shaped layout, with four wings that merge into a central gathering area. This makes room for four courtyards: a pair of small glass-encased side alcoves filled with lush foliage and two vast open-air spaces that flank the front and rear of the residence. These slices of sunlight and greenery infuse nature into the heart of the home, so “the internal views become the focus,” she explains. Each courtyard also presents distinct environmental experiences. The entrance, for example, centers on a built-in pond. Reaching the front door requires navigating floating concrete steps interspersed with islands of tropical flora, while the courtyard’s surrounding glass walls beckon inside. “Those floating steps make you feel like you’re walking on water,” laughs one of the homeowners. Past the front door is the core interior gathering space, where the architect elevated the ceilings to include generous clerestory windows. Through the glass, “you can see the tops of palm trees swaying,” she notes. “So whether it’s a blue or gray sky, you feel truly integrated with nature.” Materials further underscore this organic atmosphere, with warm

paneling on the ceiling and limestone floors that echo the exterior coral stone walls. Sliding glass doors lead to the rear loggia, which the architect primed for alfresco entertaining thanks to a cantilever overhang and views of the pool. The family enjoys more personal moments with nature in the four private wings. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood all the bedrooms with verdant light, as the architect situated each space to face the outdoor scenery. More expansive glass envelops the couple’s main bathroom among a thick tree canopy, which the general contractor’s team—including builders Kevin Meilan and Eli Abadi—carefully preserved, needing to replant only one 70-foottall royal palm. “We were able to align that tree with others on the property,” he says. “It was an incredible challenge we had to navigate.” Even hallways—spaces typical minimized in contemporary design—are more than purely liminal, as the team framed each corridor with glass walls, revealing a water feature or flush of greenery. Solitary strolls between rooms become miniature jaunts in an ever-changing environment. “It’s important that our projects have an element of discovery and intrigue,” the architect says. As avid design aficionados, the couple curated pieces in harmony with the home’s natural framework. They favored furnishings and decor with clean silhouettes attuned to the streamlined architecture: See the gently curved sofas, rounded tables and area rugs with angular patterns. Soft, neutral browns and creams—paired with wood grain and deeply veined stone—push the overall style “toward a more tropical modern design,” one of the clients notes. Additional saturated hues come courtesy of their art collection, including a painting in the office by iconic Miami artist Purvis Young. Reflecting the abode’s abundant light, metallic accents shimmer throughout, especially in bold chandeliers that take advantage of the high ceilings. Now the house has taken on a life of its own, breathing in the ebb and flow of light and air. The family can witness and appreciate each facet— from clear midday radiance to amber golden hours—from all angles. “That’s what we were trying to create: a home where you get to enjoy every single corner of it,” the architect reflects.

Suited for indoor-outdoor entertaining, a newly constructed home embraces its coastal environs.

Gathering Place


Architecture: John M. Brenner, Brenner and Associates Architecture, Inc. Interior Design: Rod Mickley, Rod Mickley Interiors Home Builder: John Huryn, Huryn Construction

A

fter living in their home for a decade, designer Rod Mickley’s clients had fantasies about all the changes they wanted to make. An open floor plan, they realized, would better accommodate their large gatherings. The husband, an avid sport fisherman, was emphatic about incorporating oceanic blues. Overall, they envisioned a modern yet relaxing waterfront retreat for their blended family. “We like lounging around, and we didn’t want it to feel stark and sterile,” the wife says. “It needed to be inviting, cozy and comforting.” Achieving this transformation required more than a renovation, so the couple embraced the opportunity to rebuild from scratch. Architect John M. Brenner devised a new structure that reflects the owners’ modern leanings while complementing the architectural vernacular of the area, known for its Old Florida-style coastal homes. “Vero Beach is a traditional place,” he observes, “but the clients have a more contemporary taste. It came down to adapting those conventional Florida or Caribbean styles with modern methods and materials.” To blend the two, the architect introduced classic West Indies influences on the exterior such as loggias, wide overhangs and a coral-like stone on the entry while integrating more contemporary elements inside. Nearly every interior surface is subtly enhanced, from nickel gap walls to the great room’s coffered ceiling and the family room’s exposed decorative trusses. The layout flows through open, airy spaces, boasting 10-foot-high ceilings in most rooms. Importantly, for entertaining flexibility, the owners wanted the interiors to connect to the property’s expansive outdoor spaces, which consist of covered porchways and breezeways overlooking the Indian River on the entire west side of the residence. “One of the big requirements was that the whole house open up,” notes general contractor John Huryn, a longtime friend of the homeowners. So the team installed glass doors that fully open to the exterior living spaces, granting seamless access to the outdoor kitchen, fire features and pool. “The owners allowed me to make full rooms outside,” Brenner explains.

“They’re spacious enough to furnish with large pieces and still have a very open area.” Inside, the most popular gathering hot spot is the great room, home to dining and sitting areas. The former is dominated by a sleek bar with a marble waterfall countertop and a television Mickley cleverly concealed behind a mirror. Above the adjacent walnut table that seats 10, he crowned the space with an LED light fixture that mimics a school of fish in a wave pattern. “It feels like you’re seeing flying fish coming out of water,” the designer muses. At the other end, in front of a seating area, oversize mahogany barn doors slide open to reveal the husband’s office, a deep-blue lacquered space punctuated with sport fishing trophies. Mickley ensured the husband’s love of blue flowed beyond the office, showing up in features such as accent pillows, the stair runner and the kitchen’s navy cabinetry and oceanic marble backsplash and countertops. To keep things from feeling monotone, he injected metallic accents, like the kitchen’s brass hardware, and helped the couple curate a collection of vibrant art. Notably, the designer introduced them to the work of one of his favorite artists, Julian Schnabel, and together they selected two pieces displayed in the breakfast area and a hallway. Others were sourced with the help of Findlay Galleries, which allowed the clients to “try on” artwork in the rooms, Mickley describes. “They brought a van full of art,” he says. “We pulled out dozens of pieces and walked around the house, holding them up and deciding what worked for each space.” Additional depth and interest come from the designer’s trademark strategy of incorporating items with a worldly feel. Near an antique sideboard in the breakfast area, he paired carved African chairs with a tree-trunk base table that has a marble-and-steel top. In lieu of a coffee table in the family room, he opted for a large ottoman covered in an antique kilim rug that offers a dose of color and additional seating. “He nailed it,” the wife says of Mickley’s design. “Rod really embraced what we envisioned and made it beautiful.” What’s more, the home is always ready for a celebration—and the couple has been taking full advantage. “It’s not unusual for a dinner party of 20 to turn into a dinner party of 60,” Huryn says. “That happened recently—and the house worked perfectly.”
