Don’t let its Spanish architecture fool you: Inside an Old Worldstyle home, a team embraces a 21st-century ambience.

Through the Looking Glass

Incorporating fluorescent bulbs and water, a sculptor bends reality by assembling glass for prism-like effects.

Modern Tradition

With clean-lined furnishings amid its historic architecture, a residence offers a fresh version of typical Palm Beach style.

ON THE COVER: Behind Martin Eisler and Carlo Hauner’s lounge chair and ottoman, a paneled screen displays a work by GaHee Park in a Miami living area by 10.Studio. Cassina’s Rio coffee table joins de Sede’s Snake sofa from DDC and Philip Arctander chairs on a custom rug.

MODERN ARCHES

“I’m noticing that arches are being used

ways. I consider arches to be fairly traditional, but there seems to be a movement toward arches in a more modern

less ornate detailing and subtle touches. They are being featured in door frames (with a change, thank goodness,

the Shaker style) and in the legs of tables and chairs.”

THE IMPORTANCE OF ARTISAN

“In many areas of decoration, I’m finding that there is a greater emphasis on the idea of handmade, heritage-quality goods. Whether it be a hand-thrown ceramic lamp or woven rattan furnishings crafted in a family-owned workshop—a story dedicated to the pieces collected for a home is more important than ever. To

one’s home with meaningful items is gratifying.”

MINIMALISM + NEUTRALS

“Personally, I’m collecting fewer but better things and encouraging my clients to do the same. Amazing case goods and luxurious upholstery add to my visual and tactile experience—no need to muddy that with too many accessories

… #edit! I’m also all about earthy neutrals right now.”

MICHEL SMITH BOYD, Founder and Principal SmithBoyd Interiors Atlanta, GA | 404.402.4224 michelsmithboyd.com | michelboyd

GEOMETRY LESSON

“The sculptor in me is excited to see a resurgence of basic shapes— triangle lampshades, oversize circle pendants and exaggerated box upholstery. Adding simple shapes to any space provides instant chic and a subtle nod back to beloved design “OGs” like David Hicks, Albert Hadley and Angelo Donghia. Returning to a classic form means you can work it in any space or aesthetic.”

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

Tune into our new wellness channel, chock full of content on sustainable practices, wellness architecture, mindfulness and more, launching this month on designtvbysandow.com. photo : chelsae anne horton

REVIVAL

MAYFAIR HOUSE HOTEL & GARDEN

As Coconut Grove continues to reinvent, an iconic hotel roars back to life in grand fashion. Transformed by interior design studio Goodrich, Mayfair House Hotel & Garden presents lush tropical grounds, curated art and two dining outlets: Mayfair Grill and Sipsip. Yet, it still embraces architect Kenneth Treister’s original masterpiece. Below, Goodrich principal Matthew Goodrich details what guests can expect. mayfairhousemiami.com

Upon Arrival. Guests will be excited to see the courtyard and garden lavishly enhanced with a dazzling array of plants and a direct view into the garden as soon as they arrive. The lobby is completely refashioned, bringing back the curvilinear plans that defined the original arrival sequence. The new sculpted plaster ceiling and column were also inspired by Kenneth Treister’s original design. Meanwhile, a new custom metal screen designed by Miami native Michele Oka Doner provides a layered transition between the interior and the courtyard.

Preservation and Restoration. Original elements of Treister’s design were restored to honor the architecture, including sculptural reliefs, copper light fixtures, carved wood doors and figurative door knockers. During construction, we also discovered sculpted panels that had been covered behind drywall for years and found decorative metal elevator doors in the basement that we reinstalled in the lobby.

New Incarnations. In the courtyard, we transformed a fountain that hadn’t worked in years into a comfortable seating area. We refashioned an old elevator into a small cocktail bar that opens right onto the old fountain. Guests can now drink and dine surrounded by palms and orchids.

Guest Rooms. Our team designed dozens of custom furniture pieces that make the rooms feel more like a guesthouse than a hotel and created color palettes inspired by the feeling of richness from the original hotel.

NEW IN TOWN GAUCHO

Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, luxury goods brand Gaucho opened its first U.S. store in the fashion-forward Miami Design District, where a towering horse sculpture at the entrance immediately sets the tone for the company’s celebrated equestrian culture. Known for leather goods, readyto-wear fashions and accessories, the brand is also garnering attention for its home decor line, Gaucho Casa. “Using the highest-quality natural materials that are ethically sourced, each piece embodies the heritage of Buenos Aires and its deep-rooted connection to artisanship,” Gaucho creative director Lautaro García de la Peña says of the collection that includes mohair throws, silver-plated trays, wine bottle accessories and homeware pieces. “Argentina’s epic wild landscapes have had their influences as well, with handworked silver or sculpted goat horn handles providing the perfect partnership of form and function—and a chic complement to the modern details in your home.” gaucho.com

HEALING SPACE

HELIA HOUSE

FLOWER POWER CAROL CALICCHIO

For abstract expressionist Carol Calicchio, painting bright, bold naturescapes reflects her deep affinity for all living things and her optimistic world view. Artistic from an early age, the Delray Beach creative dabbled in sculpting, photography and jewelry-making while attending New York School of Interior Design before pursuing her true calling: fine art. carolcalicchioart.com

What inspires you? I was raised in suburban Connecticut and spent a lot of time camping among butterflies and stars. When I go outside and look around, I find the colors within nature equally soothing and energetic, so I implement those hues in my paintings. The positiveness and lightness in the work feed my soul.

Describe your creative process It’s like I’m in a trance. I don’t set out to draw or paint something specific; it finds me. Something tells me which colors to use, and I just paint, as if I’m a vessel for how the universe is unfolding. Then I’ll look, and the painting will be done. That’s how my “Ocean” series started.

What’s on the horizon? I’m working on a black-and-white series called “Beauty of Darkness,” which was inspired by a rare flower that blossoms in the moonlight and wilts before dawn. It’s very intense in depth and contrast. I also have a home collection in the works including wallcoverings, fabrics, pillows and more.

After battling illnesses caused by living and working in a building plagued with arsenic, lead and mold, Dr. Elizabeth Trattner made it her mission to create a nontoxic building unlike anything else in the country. The doctor of Chinese and integrative medicine accomplished that feat with Helia House, her new healing oasis nestled in North Miami. “I scoured the country for the healthiest, nontoxic, green materials available,” Trattner says. “Everything from the floor to the ceiling, doors, sealants and insulation was selected in collaboration with an environmentalist.”

The midcentury modern building boasts a special air filtration system that kills viruses and bacteria as well as a water filtration system that eliminates harmful chemicals. More than 1,000 crystals are embedded throughout the structure for an energizing effect, while wraparound windows, plants and a Zen garden offer natural sunlight and elements of nature. “Many people would think that a space like this would feel sterile and unwelcoming, but I incorporated natural materials like untreated teak, poplar, fir, date palm lighting, ethically sourced wool rugs and Oeko-Tex linen curtains to create a warm, welcoming oasis,” says Trattner, who also chose artwork by female artisans in Morocco, Tunisia and Italy. The practice offers acupuncture, light therapy, Chinese dietary therapy, crystal and gemstone healing and more to treat acute and chronic illnesses. elizabethtrattner.com

ROAD TRIP

FROM A NEW ARTS DISTRICT IN DELRAY BEACH TO WYNWOOD’S FIRST HOTEL, ART AND CULTURE ARE BUZZING THIS SEASON IN SOUTH FLORIDA.

ANDRE DESIGN DISTRICT

A warehouse sector fashioned after Miami’s Wynwood Arts District is becoming a central hub for creatives in Delray Beach. Located on Congress Avenue, one block from bustling Atlantic Avenue, the Andre Design District is awash with 30 colorful murals, many of them painted by Wynwood names, and houses around 70 tenants who have added their own flair to their spaces. “We’ve transformed over 40,000 square feet of industrial space to interior design firms, art galleries, beauty and fi tness enterprises, creative retailers and more,” says Steven Michael, principal of B anyan Group and developer of the Andre Design District. “It’s the opportunity to bring back the cluster of art galleries, unique shops and eateries that made Delray so desirable for the past three decades.” Look for rich programming, like monthly art walks, and more cafes and a distillery to open by the end of the year. designdelray.com

ARLO WYNWOOD

For the first time during Art Week, after exploring Wynwood, get ready for a sleepover. The new Arlo Wynwood hotel presents prime access to the neighborhood’s vibrant street art and will serve as a living canvas for artists. Guests can explore more than 250 works, including exterior walls splashed by Miami locals Hoxxoh and Milagros Collective.

“Art enthusiasts can spend hours perusing the hotel’s permanent installations and special Art Week exhibits before stepping out to explore the hundreds of galleries, popups and street art,” says Jennifer Hiblum, general manager of Arlo Wynwood. “We are thrilled to o er guests an immersive cultural experience during one of the greatest art events in the world.” Designed by Meyer Davis, the hotel exudes an eclectic industrial aesthetic where organic meets modern.

Amenities include private cabanas, a rooftop pool, a bar and cafe, and a yoga deck. arlohotels.com

At the end of November, the international art world will converge in Miami for the muchanticipated Art Week. Art connoisseurs should prioritize lauded Art Basel , which will take over the Miami Beach Convention Center, open to the public December 1 to December 3.

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.”

Grounding Approach

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

LAYERED LOUNGER

Stackabl, a digital platform by Toronto design firm Stacklab that allows users to create one-of-a-kind pieces from leftover, locally sourced materials, has joined forces with New York-based gallery Maison Gerard to launch its inaugural collection. As part of the platform’s introductory designer capsule series, Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson of Drake/Anderson, designed this Madame Chaise Lounge. Layers of stacked felt remnants (a Stackabl signature) form a modern version of a traditional chaise, while the jolt of pink is an ode to midcentury fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. maisongerard.com

James Shaw’s colorful and tactile Plastic Baroque Chairs prove that a problematic and mundane material can be reimagined into something beautiful. Shaw has worked with plastics for nearly a decade and created a special extruding tool allowing him to further push the limits of the material’s assumed potential. The fruits of his labor are on display with the whimsically imperfect arms and legs of these lightweight chairs, which are topped with removable patchwork corduroy cushions. objectivegallery.com

The Malachite Rug, shown here, is made by artisans in Rajasthan using reclaimed silk remnants collected from the sari industry.

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

ICONS + INNOVATORS

Within any industry, profession or creative community, there are icons and there are innovators. Those in the first group—the icons—have a storied history and abiding level of expertise that has placed them at the very top of their field. While the second—the innovators—are discovering new ideas and ways of working that bring energy and ingenuity to their craft. And an important point not to be overlooked is that in many instances icons and innovators are one and the same. In this special section, Luxe Interiors + Design celebrates these enduring leaders and forward-thinking visionaries whose commitment to what they do and the people they do it for is both far-reaching and long-lasting.

A good contractor pays attention to their client, throughout every step in the process and the execution of every detail. The understanding of this principle is the reason the founder of Arvani Building Works is the fourth generation of his family to find success in the trade. Nikolas Arvanitopoulos, alongside sons Niko and Iason, brought his general contracting and real estate firm to life with the intention of building dream custom homes while giving each homeowner an above-and-beyond experience. “My father and grandfather taught me everything I know, and now we run the business the way we do because of them,” Nikolas shares. By the age of 21, he was president of his father’s Grecian company, and when they came to the U.S., they worked hard to show a new audience their honesty, integrity and level of quality. It has certainly paid off—in gorgeous builds and clients who become a part of the family.

COMPLEX + CUTTING EDGE

Asked to describe a current project they are excited about, Nikolas shares, “We currently have one that is 25,000 square feet directly facing the ocean. It requires a very advanced level of understanding, from technical insights to environmental knowledge and even wildlife expertise, because there are many government agencies involved to ensure all regulations are being met. It takes a sophisticated team to have the know-how and patience for a project of this size and caliber.”

THINKING FORWARD

What will Nikolas, Niko and Iason do next? “We plan to grow Arvani Building Works to continue creating the best homes in South Florida. We will take our traditions into the future, merging our timeless practices and integrity with new, advanced technology to give our clients more creativity and opportunity than ever.”

Dreamers, artists, designers, makers, masters of metal—in the BELT family and creative team, one finds it all. Together, Louis Beltran and Angela Garcia, and their children Valentina and Federico, lead this collaborative metal design studio that pushes boundaries to inspire clients with the endless possibilities the material holds. “From classic to contemporary, sculptural staircases to art commissions, if you can dream it, we can make it,” Louis says. Working alongside architects, interior designers, builders and homeowners, the studio interprets their vision, shares their metal expertise and co-creates unique pieces. In its creative journey, BELT has won many accolades and built a loyal base of repeat clientele. Asked what they believe is the secret to their success, Valentina touches on their careful approach and says, “As every hyper-technological trend rises, there is a countertrend in response. We see design gravitate towards meaningful and unique pieces with timeless aesthetics that honor and elevate the craft.”

DETAILS THAT DEFINE

“Some truly great architects of history inspire us,” Louis shares. “In particular, those of the Art Nouveau movement, such as Guimard, Horta and Gaudí, are influential. In their work, every building ornament had a meaning and intent, and their exploration of material was unbelievable. Details differentiate revered timeless architecture, contemporary or not, from the cookie-cutter kind.”

SURFACES BY BELT

BELT’s iconic work will continue to push the material limits and explore unseen capabilities. The family studio has been developing boutique collections of metal surfaces. “The versatility and incredible natural textures, tones and shapes we can create are infinite, inspiring and very appreciated by the design community,” Louis says. “We are using them for private art commissions, capsule collections of one-of-akind furnishings, wall claddings, wall fixtures, partition screens and architectural detailing.”

FIGURES OF INFLUENCE

Who motivates and inspires Jay and David?

• “I find Christophe Delcourt to be really inspiring when it comes to furniture,” Jay says.

“And I love everything for lighting from Apparatus Studio in New York City—they craft just really incredible products.”

• “Personally, I love Yabu Pushelberg’s work,” David says. “They are innovators in hospitality and retail design, and I find them really inspiring.

I’m also a big fan of Renzo Piano and his studio, as well as Herzog & de Meuron.”

Ask Jay Britto and David Charette, founding partners of Wynwood’s awardwinning interior design firm Britto Charette, what their ultimate business goals are, and they’ll tell you it’s all about legacy. “We know that design that is tested and rooted in longevity works,” David says. Jay adds, “We aim to create timeless spaces for our clients, and collectible heirloom pieces.” They, along with fellow principal Pedro Cabas, are on their way to achieving that goal, having launched their WASI porcelain collection at ICFF in 2013 after multiple collaborations with Kyle Bunting. “Our team incorporates high-end design solutions, including mechanical, electrical and plumbing, in all of our projects,” David shares. “We design custom carpets and furniture, do three-dimensional printing in-house and push ourselves to discover and then work with the best tradespeople and professionals in the industry.”

TRENDS, TECH, TIMELESS

“If you can look at a project and know when it was fabricated and installed—that is trendy and not our goal,” Jay says.

“We want to create designs that have a timeless quality and can be appreciated for generations.”

David adds, “Tech is something we do embrace, because it enables us to work with materials, such as stone or wood, in innovative ways and to create custom pieces that are truly special and site-specific.”

Social media, too, proves an innovation that is useful.

BEAUTY À LA BRAZIL

“Every time I visit my home country of Brazil, I leave so inspired by the fashion and interior design,” Antunes shares. “On one specific trip, in 2019, I saw wall panels for the first time. I immediately knew I had to bring this to the U.S. Two years later, it is our best-selling product. We made it fully accessible to the luxury market, removing the need for a carpenter and instead utilizing panels for easy installation.”

GIVING BACK

When asked to discuss the legacy she hopes to leave behind, Antunes says: “We were fortunate enough to work with Miami Learning Experience School on our first ‘wallpaper with a purpose’ collaboration. They allowed us to work with their special-needs students from kindergarten to high school, where we created a full collection out of their work. Their designs will live forever on wallpaper around the world, giving back 10 percent to the school with every purchase.”

Tucked away in a beautiful, Art Deco-style home, Casa Métier is an experience from the moment one steps inside. The boutique, specialized purveyor of luxury wallcoverings is beloved for its highly curated designs and incredible quality. But before it became the go-to for those who love interesting, statement-making walls, Casa Métier was brought to life by Renata Antunes. “After being in executive roles elsewhere, I was excited to merge my love of fashion and interior design, infusing my creativity with my business acumen,” she says. And indeed, she has, in both her signature Métier collection and other products that exude the inventive spirit often evident in high fashion. Even still, they also sit perfectly within the realm of interior inspiration, drawing influence and interest from designers the likes of Kelly Wearstler, IG Workshop and DS Miami.

Unique, daring and tailored to the homeowner—these are the qualities Luciana Fragali and her team at Design Solutions strive to imbue in every project. “To us, design means creation, innovation and advancement,” Fragali shares. “We take an idea, extract the essence of the project and implement it with our vision.” The resulting spaces and homes each tell a distinctive story, with style that reflects the end user, rather than conforming to trends. It’s a dream for Fragali, who has design in her soul. “I strongly believe that I was born an architect and interior designer,” she says. “While other kids my age were playing with dolls or on the playground, my favorite pastime was going to the mall, where there was a unique store which sold furniture for children. As I entered my teen years, the antique fair near my home became my go-to spot—I loved hunting for pieces never knowing what I would discover.”

PREDICTING TIMELESS

Asked to share an exciting new trend, Fragali pivots to offer up her thoughts on which trends will stand the test of time.

• Tulip tables: The ability of this piece to blend into any space will mean that it never goes out of style.

• Westchester sofas: These are the perfect combination of formal and casual.

• Bentwood chairs: Aside from being highly durable, these are the perfect accent piece.

• Chaise lounge: Having been around for centuries, this piece has been designed and redesigned in so many fashions—you are bound to find one you love.

• Tufted headboard: It adds elegance and grandeur to any room.

DYNAMIC ROLES

“I have had the privilege of working with all sorts of people from around the world, and I’ve come to find that in addition to being an architect and interior designer, I am also a psychologist, a friend, an advisor and more,” Fragali says. “I always want to create something I’m proud of, but it’s imperative to know how to work with different tastes and styles, and communicate to find common ground with the client.”

Ivette Arango’s story is one for the books. From being raised by an entrepreneurial Cuban immigrant, to overcoming the adversities of great loss and single parenthood, the interior designer’s experiences have instilled in her a sense of adaptability and determination. The mindset behind the work of her namesake firm, Ivette Arango Interiors, proves it. “Innovation comes about from the outside-the-box solutions we develop to meet the particular needs of our clients,” she says. “We do not simply identify trends.

THE ROOTS OF AN ICON

• An auspicious beginning: Arango’s first job was with longtime design luminary Fran Murphy. “She taught me so much about the business side of the industry, as well as the psychological side of understanding clients.”

• From a gamble to Gables: “In the 1980s, Miami’s Decorators Row was a ghost town,” Arango says. “I decided to swim against the current and buy properties in this area when most people were leaving. Things have changed since then—it’s now Miami Design District!” After being a part of the rejuvenation of this famous neighborhood, Arango moved her firm to its current location at 300 Palermo Avenue in Coral Gables. “It has an enviable design library and lots of natural light.”

True icons and innovators make sure that they are always up to speed on what’s happening in their area of expertise, the marketplace and the culture.

For Anil Kakar of Kakar House of Design, that means bringing an international approach to design. Kakar, who opened his retail store in 2012, says: “There was a need in the Miami market for something out of the ordinary and truly unique. I made the decision to source most furnishings from all over the globe. My retail showroom embodies that approach. It’s constantly changing and evolving, and I rarely repeat items. I’m always on the hunt for the most extraordinary items from all of my travels.” Another key aspect of innovation? Trusting your gut. “To be an innovator, one must follow their own instincts,” Kakar adds. “One should create based not on what the trends are, but on what feels right and what is truly best for each design project.”

CUTTING EDGE

A leading edge innovation in the industry today is laser cut furniture, which Kakar notes “can become literally anything.” He adds, “There are endless possibilities in design that translate from the computer screen to actual furniture using these high-tech machines and methods.”

INSTA INSPIRATION

Kakar cites social media as an “important tool for people to share their ideas and creative strategies.” On Instagram, three of Kakar’s favorite accounts are:

WHAT’S NEXT?

The upcoming slate of projects for Kakar House of Design include lots of new custom projects, renovations and collaborations with hospitality designers. Kakar says: “The hospitality world in Miami is on fire! The array of projects is so interesting and different, with a very international approach.

SARAH

When a caring, collaborative spirit is mixed with a lifelong passion for groundbreaking design and construction, the result is homes, spaces and environments that provide beauty and functionality, while promoting health and well-being. As the founder and lead designer at Sarah Z Designs, Sarah Zohar’s unique approach to design-build took root when she was young. “Growing up, my dad and brothers were in construction,” Zohar says. “So with design, architecture and engineering in my genes, it’s no surprise that I created my own fullservice shop.” One of the most important aspects of Zohar’s award-winning work is her commitment to biophilic design. “Whether it’s organic stone, wood, decorative pieces or artwork, I take inspiration from the outdoors and incorporate natural finishes, materials, textures and accents into my projects to create harmonious designs that elevate my clients’ lives.”

ICONIC INSIGHTS

Sarah Zohar shares her thoughts on what it takes to be a design leader.

“To be a design icon involves much more than choosing furniture and color schemes,” Zohar says. “You have to have passion, dedication, drive and vision, and you need to get to know your clients through open and honest communication and by observing how they live, so that you can understand their wants and needs. That is the formula for delivering environments that exceed their expectations and enrich their daily experience.”

THE NEW + THE NEXT

• What’s exciting you right now? We recently expanded our showroom, office and home accessories store. Our goal is to be always growing, refining and evolving.

• What do you hope the future holds? I want to leave a legacy imbued by my passion for design, and I want to be remembered for creating beautiful spaces and translating my clients’ dreams into reality.

Most homeowners bring sentimental items and treasured decor with them when relocating to a new residence.

Designers Cristina Hoyos and Melanie Weber’s clients, however, arrived with more than a few beloved pieces: a vast art collection, numbering some 400 works by emerging contemporary artists. Although not each one would be displayed, the Venezuelan couple still required a home that would accommodate their acquisitions while remaining suitable for life with three young children. With a few improvements, a structure they discovered on a lush lot had the potential to meet their needs. “They wanted to focus on their art, the walls and the lighting, both inside and out,” Hoyos says.

Architect Alfonso Jurado and builder Eduardo Arenas partnered for the renovation, a major focus of which was to bring as much natural light as possible inside and to create a more open plan. To do so, they eliminated key walls, including between the living and dining rooms, and added full-length windows to the living area. The latter now has enormous views of the Caribbean-inspired grounds by landscape designer Mercedes Porcari, who installed plantings such as ferns, ginger flowers and gardenias around the owners’ outdoor sculptures. “We wanted to create a functional but tropical space,” she says. “It’s romantic and as natural as it could be.” Jurado and Arenas also relocated the primary bedroom from its original ground-floor location to the second floor and improved the transition between the living and dining areas by looking up: “In rejigging the ceiling trusses, we created a vaulted look throughout that entire space,” the architect says.

Most walls were painted white to create a neutral backdrop for the art, yet the owners embraced an element the designers encouraged to warm up the home’s museum-like quality: lightly stained oak woodwork—the more, the better. “We suggest wood all the time to clients, but they’re usually scared to have too much of it,” Weber laughs. “We think there is never too much.” In addition to installing millwork throughout the residence, “we used engineered wood flooring in the living and dining areas and the same paneling on the walls,” Arenas adds. Flush frameless doors in the space remain concealed, creating a seamless look.

Although the updated floor plan produced the bright openness the owners desired, the reduced wall space created a daunting task for the designers: determining where and how to display art. “That became a challenge throughout the house,” Weber acknowledges. “During every call, the husband asked, ‘Where am I going to put this piece? Does it fit on this wall?’ ” One solution was constructed between the dining and living areas: a slatted oak screen equipped with hooks, letting the homeowners easily hang—and swap out—art from both sides while allowing light to pass through. The husband also proposed the idea of installing a ceiling-mounted hanging system, used often by museums, keeping many walls free of nail holes.

Within the new framework, the designers considered ways to imbue a sophisticated yet cozy vibe without drawing attention away from the art. Coincidentally, just like he had amassed their collection, the husband gravitated toward the value and meaning behind vintage furnishings, which augmented the tone set in each space. “In all of our work, we incorporate some midcentury pieces,” Hoyos notes. “The husband realized he loved this style and could collect pieces like art.” Treating the process in a similar investment manner, he researched the makers and stories behind items such as the dining area’s midcentury modern mahogany table and cane chairs, both complementing the nearby screen, and the living area’s reupholstered Costela chair and ottoman. Maintaining a clean look, the designers focused on a neutral palette and natural materials, including raffia-like rugs throughout and vintage sheepskin chairs in the living area.

Not every piece is decades old, however. The team mixed in contemporary items with a throwback look, like statement light fixtures and the living area’s curvy leather sofa. “These pieces float, like in a museum, so you can walk behind furniture to see the art,” Weber explains. Unsurprisingly, art also shows up in the children’s playrooms and bedrooms, which mirror the rest of the home in refined whimsy. “We wanted items that will last so the kids can grow older with them,” Hoyos says, pointing to the raffia wallcoverings and vintage rugs. Now the family is surrounded by two beloved collections of art and furniture, all under one roof—a little midcentury, a little eclectic and completely them.

A New Classic

Embracing contrasts, a home takes its cues from Spanish architecture and modern Italian design.

At first glance, Tracy and Alisa Bahl’s Mediterraneanstyle house looks every bit a part of South Florida’s architectural legacy. There’s coral-stone trim around the windows and cornices, a tile roof, a rotunda and even a bell tower. Step into the luminous entry, however, and the clean lines and bold juxtapositions signal that this Old Worldstyle residence is, in fact, a new build. Crisp white wainscoting opposes the steel balustrade on the dramatic curving staircase leading to the second floor, while the creamy tiles underfoot are accented with graphic details in dark stone, continuing the length of the adjacent gallery hall. “The exterior is traditional, but inside, it’s a completely different feeling,” says designer Susan Bednar Long. “The owners wanted a classic but updated look, so that contrast was intentional.”

The original midcentury dwelling on the property had long been the couple’s second home. Though it offered proximity to family and friends as well as gorgeous sunset views over the water, turning the existing structure into their forever home proved impractical, and the Bahls decided to start fresh. “As much as we loved it, the house had 1942 problems,” Tracy explains. “The space usage and flow weren’t right for us. And we wanted a second story, which couldn’t be built on top of that foundation.” Alisa adds, “We wanted a layout that worked for how we live and entertain.”

Making the most of the long, narrow site, architect Carlos Palmer designed a two-story volume with a vaulted center hallway as a breezeway between the primary rooms on both floors. Midway down the lower-level corridor, French doors open to two interior courtyards with loggias, ensuring an easy flow indoors and out. “The house is classical, but its layout is modern,” Palmer says. “The hall forms a strong axis, which ends with a round pool mirroring the bell tower at the front.”

Builder Adriana Hernandez, who helmed the project with her father, builder Luis Hernandez, applauds the owners’ commitment to authenticity. “The raw steel staircase railing feels like something someone would have done years ago,” she says. “The columns are actual coral columns, and the

pavers in front are salvaged Chicago brick. As a builder, these details take longer and require more coordination, but they make the house.”

For the interiors, Long took her cues from one of the couple’s favorite European getaways, the J.K. Place Capri, which offers a fresh take on traditional Italian design. She embraced the challenge of creating an atmosphere that would spotlight their growing art collection while bringing in a streamlined feel of traditional forms and fixtures. Because the dwelling had to be comfortable when it was just Tracy and Alisa yet flex to accommodate their visiting sons and gatherings both large and small, there are spaces for entertaining and lounging. The media room, for instance, holds a spacious sectional as well as a pool table that can act as an overflow dining table. A coffered ceiling sounds a formal note in the white paneled library, which the designer outfitted with a striped rug, mirrored bar, houndstooth-covered wing chair and white performance fabric on the settee. Just across the hall, the dining room also leans formal, but she took care to include such practical features as hidden wall storage and ring pulls on the backs of the chairs so they can be moved without touching the fabric.

Long tapped her experience in yacht design to put an elegantly nautical spin on the octagonal breakfast area, where a glossy mahogany table inlaid with chrome is joined by creamy fauxleather chairs finished in navy piping. Meanwhile, the flowing white draperies and the drum shade overhead are edged with stripes. “I’m a huge stripes fan,” she says. “I’d put them on everything.”

The designer deployed a more informal vibe for the upstairs bedrooms and the couple’s office, with a complementary palette and painted wood floors. Angled, beamed ceilings and round windows invoke the coastal nod, while a cathedral ceiling brings a lofty feel to the primary bedroom. The latter is accented with tomato red, inspired by a Horst P. Horst photograph Alisa wanted on display, and traditional lacquered linen side tables.

Best of all, the abode is an homage to the city the owners adore. “We can be in the middle of bustling Miami Beach one minute and in our pool the next, enjoying a drink and watching the sunset,” Tracy says. Alisa adds: “We love Miami, and we wanted it to be part of what we built.”

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

Playing with light and gravity, a glass sculptor pushes the boundaries of perception through his work.

WRITTEN BY MONIQUE MCINTOSH PHOTOGRAPHY BY MARY BETH KOETH

From soaring medieval cathedral windows to Victorian crystal palaces to modern skyscrapers, glass has been the material of choice for engineering wonder. It can refract light, make structures seemingly defy gravity and even manipulate perceptions of space. Artist Brookhart Jonquil harnesses these reality-bending qualities in his geometric glass sculptures.

Jonquil gravitated toward glass because “I wanted to make an object without using any physical material,” he explains. “I knew that wasn’t possible, so I found the faintest sliver of matter that would interact with light and gravity to create an object through perception.”

Manipulating clear and mirrored glass achieves this incorporeal experience. Jonquil carefully calculates his structures’ dimensions through sketches and CAD programs to create these prism-like effects. In his Miami warehouse studio stacked with glass sheets, he often cuts and bonds pieces by hand onto metal scaffolding. Together, these facets create cascading shapes that shift when observed from different angles. “Its form emerges from emptiness, emptiness emerging from form,” says the artist, who is represented by Emerson Dorsch. Sometimes paired with fluorescent bulbs, these reflections multiply into labyrinths of light.

Yet every hand-cut joint remains visible to viewers. “You understand the mechanisms and still see the mirage,” he explains. “You’re creating my work in your mind. If you close your eyes, the piece ceases to exist.”

The sculptures’ hard angularity has softened in Jonquil’s recent pieces incorporating water, which contort space in unpredictable ways— but also introduce nature. “If there’s warmth and water, life happens,” he notes. “I wanted to examine that complexity.” At the Deering Estate, nature flocked to the artist’s first water sculpture, Earth Arise, Sky Descend —a transparent Plexiglas pyramid floating in water that grew populated by algae, grass and wild animals. These explorations continued in his interactive installation at the Miami Botanical Gardens, where visitors could water plant cuttings in Plexiglas.

Jonquil’s latest piece is on display at the Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club from November 17 through December 8, compelling viewers to feel the undercurrents sustaining our daily existence through his work. Indeed, through the artist’s lens, life is truly something to behold.

In his warehouse-like Miami studio, artist Brookhart Jonquil (bottom) measures a piece of mirrored glass for a sculpture. Occasionally incorporating fluorescent bulbs (below), he uses intangible forces to create art—often rendered in angular (left) or geometric forms (opposite)—that warp the way viewers witness space and light for a visual illusion.

Modern Tradition

Blending historic with current, one designer offers a twist on the local style of a 1920s residence.

L U X E S O U R C E C O M
Interior Design: Monique Miller, Calimia Home The living room’s existing pink walls are a perfect backdrop for pieces such as a bookcase from Mecox and a Burke Decor globe pendant. The wicker table and chair set is from Florida Regency. Custom stools and a vintage bar cart add to the scene.

The first thing designer Monique Miller thought when she approached her clients’ Spanishinspired home was, “Wow. This is beautiful.” When Miller walked inside, she had another strong reaction—but for different reasons. “The Palm Beach style was intense,” the designer recalls of the interior, which was awash in shades of pink and multitudes of wallpaper. “I knew I had to peel back those layers.”

The former owner purchased the historic El Cid residence, named Villa Belmonte, after it served as the Kips Bay showhouse in 2017, transforming the individually designed rooms into a singular vibe that embodied South Florida’s vintage look. But Miller’s clients, who’d relocated to the area from New York with their young children, wanted a different approach. “They asked me, ‘Can we revamp this into something elevated and relaxed?’ ” she says. “They still wanted a nod to Palm Beach but to embrace more of the home’s Spanish architecture.”

They’d chosen the right designer: Miller is renowned for her work with Mediterranean homes. “This house definitely speaks to my personal taste,” she says. “Historic Spanish colonial structures are what I love.”

Thanks to this expertise, the designer immediately knew the angle she wanted to take: Keep those classic architectural moments while integrating modern furnishings to make the interiors feel fresh. Original terra-cotta floors, Spanish tile, cypress beams and arched doorways would be preserved. Clean-lined furnishings, natural stone, statement lighting and greenery (lots and lots of it) would then brighten the rooms. “These details are what make the interiors current,” Miller notes.

There was another element she couldn’t ignore—incorporating a more restrained version of Palm Beach style into the home. It was important, Miller explains, to still reference the locale’s design influences. To do this, she embraced the classic pink-and-green color scheme with a modern take, including soft blues. The designer considered each room with a singularity, as the 1920s architecture meant separate rooms rather than a contemporary openconcept layout. But, using the chosen color palette as the baseline—sometimes quiet, sometimes dramatic—she also ensured there was a natural

flow. “I had to think about each room individually but also holistically,” Miller says.

In the dining room, this meant coating the walls in a vivid green that reads fun yet sophisticated. “The clients wanted this room for entertaining,” she says, pointing to the contemporary vibes of the minimalist beetle chairs, sleek marble consoles and extra-wide oak table that allows for two-person benches rather than traditional head chairs.

After dinner, a transition to the living room for cocktails or coffee provides a subtler tribute to the region with its blush walls, chairs with moss-green leather seats and vintage wicker game table and chairs. “The wall color was already in the space,” the designer reveals. “But once we took out all the furnishings, including pink sofas, I realized it could work if we did it in our own way.” This included low-profile, armless, white linen sofas; a travertine coffee table; and an oversize globe pendant. “Now the color is soft,” she muses, adding that the understated palette allows the white plaster fireplace to play center stage—“whereas before, the pink felt strong and prominent.”

Palm Beach chic is nothing if not playful, so Miller also wanted to ensure the abode has a lightheartedness. In the family room, a custom sectional covered in a blue performance linen encourages piling upon. “It’s so huge, it can fit eight to 10 people,” she says. A sunny yellow breakfast nook with a jade linen-covered banquette provides an exuberant ambience for casual meals. And for even more pop, the designer covered the entry walls in bold green-and-white patterned wallpaper and installed cane furniture in the space, playing to the cypress beams overhead while setting a tropical tone.

Another green-and-white wallpaper—this one striped—provides a gender-neutral backdrop in the children’s suite, which was designed for the couple’s son and daughter (they’ve since greeted a new baby). “They wanted their kids to be together,” Miller says. “We didn’t want it to speak to being a boy’s or a girl’s space.” In fact, any child would adore the room, which features a play area complete with a poofy sofa, kid-friendly artwork and props for imaginative games.

It’s a house the designer says holds a special place in her heart, as it reflects the family and how they live. “They made this huge move from New York to Southeast Florida,” she says. “And now, this really feels like home.”

Opposite: A Made Goods nightstand holds Arteriors’ rattan Parasol lamp between the custom oakand-linen upholstered beds on a Dash & Albert rug in the children’s bedroom. The Roman shade is The Shade Store’s Luxe linen in Oyster.

THE DESIGN ENLIGHTENMENT HOME

ONE DESIGNER’S UNIQUE PHILOSOPHY GOES FROM THE PAGES OF A BOOK TO A REAL-LIFE MASTERPIECE

When Beatrice Pila wrote her book, Sacred Spaces for Inspired Living, she poured into it her ethos of interior design. It hinges on the belief that each person’s life path is as unique as their fingerprint, and so, too, should their home be. Now, some six years after its publication, the accomplished author and designer has brought to life the embodiment of her work in her own home alongside her husband, Carlos, who is an architect and builder. He helped Bea pull together a stellar team of other firms and brands. Through this impressive collaboration, she has put her philosophy into practice—and invited us in. Welcome, to The Design Enlightenment Home.

B. PILA DESIGN STUDIO

PILA-GONZALEZ, PRINCIPAL

What does the “New American” home look and feel like? This is a question Bea and her team at B. Pila Design Studio set out to answer in the creation of The Design Enlightenment Home. “We wanted to express what we consider it to be, with a strong statement in biophilia and how that adds to the overall wellness of the human experience within spaces,” Bea says. “What that means is that every space is connected to the outdoors at all times, and there are no redundancies or rooms used purely for show.” Honoring the people who will inhabit a space is at the core of Bea’s work, and in her own home, that remains evident. “We are showcased everywhere, since we had our hand in every single design element,” she says of herself and husband Carlos. Together, they have created a truly personalized Miami paradise.

ARAGON CONSTRUCTION

Before the stylistic details and custom pieces can come into play, an architect must set the tone for a project. Enter, Carlos Gonzalez-Ochoa. Bea’s other half in life and business, Gonzalez-Ochoa is the owner and principal of Aragon Construction. The duo offers a full-scale design-build experience—from initial ideas through installing the light switches—and for The Design Enlightenment Home, they were as thorough as ever. “Bea and I had a clear vision of what we wanted, and we were able to express this using our 80 years of collective experience and one core understanding about every project: planning and collaboration are key,” Carlos says. “Only an incredible team can bring such a vision to life. Luckily, we had one.”

“Appliances complement your cooking style, they chill your wine— and it just so happens, Wolf’s iconic knobs are a part of the red touches in Bea’s kitchen.”

any home, the kitchen is a centerpiece of activity and impressive design. In The Design Enlightenment Home, this is as true as ever, and the appliance selection played a key role. Through MiaAppliances, the sister company of MiaCucina, Bea sourced Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove technology for her culinary oasis. Performance and panache were both guiding factors. “We truly love how Bea took advantage of both gas and electric Wolf products,” says Shannon Lewis, the brand’s Southeast Marketing Manager. “By pairing a more traditional piece—the Wolf range with our iconic red knobs—with a fully integrated Designer Series refrigerator, Bea struck a beautiful and unique blend of classic and contemporary in her kitchen design.”

When one enters The Design Enlightenment Home’s primary bedroom suite, one feature immediately draws the eye. “The book-matched Arabescato slab feature wall provides movement and depth,” says Victoria Rehkamp, who, as the regional sales manager at Opustone, helped Bea select and source the piece. “The installation serves as an accent to combine the visible exterior landscape with the interior home.” It is indeed the perfect statement-maker for the space, as is the gorgeous countertop in the kitchen and all of the other surfaces Opustone specified. “Our work is to source the best from around the

of our favorite parts of this project is how we were able to combine natural elements with a sleek and polished European style, as exemplified in the kitchen and bar.”

ROUCO, PRESIDENT

core part of Bea’s vision for The Design Enlightenment Home rested in the furnishings. They would define the details of what it felt like to rest, work, play and gather in each space. Good thing the designer already had a lasting relationship with the owners of local Italian furnishings showroom MiaCucina. Rey Rouco, owner alongside Mark Murphy, Javier Wainer and Ariel Wainer, describes the joy of the project: “We’ve had the pleasure of working with Bea for 15 years, so we were excited to be a part of her own home’s remodel. It reflects Bea; it is serene, elegant and artistic, with its marriage of hues and textures, including glass, warm oak wood in two tones, metallics and earthy bricks. In the kitchen, the surprising and fun pops of red are suited to her personality, too.”

Right The architecture of The Design Enlightenment Home is enhanced by the theatrical lighting of the evening setting. Photography Nick Johnson Interiors USAI LIGHTING SEAN GAYDOS, SVP SALES 845.565.8500 | usailighting.com | usailighting With dynamic lighting in a home, one can decide how they want interior spaces to feel—even on a cloudy day. Jarrod Fox, a manufacturer representative for USAI Lighting, elaborates: “Lighting may start dim and warm, similar to the sun’s gentle rise. They will move to match
bright, crisp blue sky that helps keep us focused and alert, until it gradually softens into an evening sunset, preparing us for restful sleep.” This is the level of thoughtful design the third-generation, family-owned USAI brought to The Design Enlightenment Home, which features the manufacturer’s signature BeveLED Mini Complete with Color Select® Tunable White and Micro Multi-Cell with Classic White.
