Happy Endings

Lighting doyenne Gale Singer’s ultra-tailored Savannah refuge is a case study in her edited, ever-confident design instincts.

Blending fun with refinement, a design team brings 1920s influences and laissez-faire to a midcentury Alabama abode.

Drawing upon decades of travel, a Georgia artist’s inspired paintings and pottery tribute antiquity and modernity alike.

The tales of two homeowners’ lives are thoughtfully interwoven in a Nashville home with New England and Provençal touchstones.

This issue of Luxe is essentially a love letter to the people who make design happen. In addition to our annual GOLD LIST, which recognizes talents from across the country who have had their projects featured in our pages the past year, we celebrate creative originators and innovators: a community and collective of people who are grounded in their craft and dedicated to pushing design forward. We thank all of you for imagining and enriching the homes we live in. As the rhythms of daily life begin to return, and the pandemic recedes into the rear view, I am hopeful that the meaningfulness of home, and the people who reimagine the spaces of our everyday life, will remain in our hearts and minds.

Luxe celebrates people in design, including interior designers Rayman Boozer (above), Martyn Lawrence Bullard (middle) and Young Huh (right).

Healthy Planet. Healthy People. Healthy Lifestyles. 2022 IS THE YEAR OF THE HEALTHY KITCHEN. In many ways, true wellness begins in the kitchen. It is where we give our body the nutrition it needs, where we spend time bonding with loved ones over culinary projects, where we learn recipes and engage our most creative selves in the process. And at the heart of this high-performance heart of the home is its appliance suite. That’s where Beko comes in. A global appliance manufacturer with a product presence in 400 million homes in 140 countries, Beko is driven by a three-fold commitment to helping people be well through the production of appliances that promote health. The brand also believes that healthy people are only possible on a healthy planet, so it employs a zero-carbon manufacturing process. Its products are full of eco-friendly innovations and continually achieve ENERGY STAR certifications.

As part of the initiative, Beko will present 22 new cooking, cooling and cleaning products equipped with proprietary technologies and features to empower Americans to lead healthier, more sustainable lives.

Doling Out Wellness

In partnership with Dole Food Company, one of the largest fresh fruit and vegetable providers in the world, Beko is working to bring healthier food to more tables. Together, the two companies will support hunger-relief and child nutrition charities that are striving to end hunger and encourage healthier living across the United States.

TALKING SHOP BLANK CANVAS DEVELOPMENT

In 2009, Atlanta native and RISD graduate Anna McCraney (left) won first place on a Bravo TV fashion series, then blazed her way through the NYC garment industry, teaching fashion design and operating a boutique on the Lower East Side. Five years after launching a consulting business for other aspiring makers, Blank Canvas Development, McCraney headed south for Savannah, coaxed by the SCAD hub’s close-knit community and “amazing well of talent.” Just recently, her brick-and-mortar storefront and studio debuted on Bull Street. There, she displays wares by herself and her clients—all of which are American made using ethical practices and largely sustainable materials. Below, she shares her vision with Luxe. blankcanvasdevelopment.com How do you help burgeoning makers bring their ideas to fruition? We guide our clients through everything from pricing and technical drawings to patternmaking, samples and finished products. We really refine the idea for production, facilitating the entire process. What are some home goods your Savannah shoppers are loving? We carry dinnerware by Carmel Ceramica, Amsha baskets hand-woven in Rwanda (top left) and soft goods featuring my own designs: There’s one with grass and sky, a “melting flowers” print and another I was inspired to make after a trip to Morocco; it’s sort of Berber-esque.

BLUEPRINT FOUR SEASONS PRIVATE RESIDENCES NASHVILLE

It took a village to create the new Four Seasons Nashville, encompassing a hotel, public spaces and culinary concepts by Marzipan on floors 1–14, luxury residences and amenity areas by HOK on the floors above, with an 11,000-square-foot “sky garden” by Confluence, Inc. to crown it all. But the penthouses—currently the most coveted real estate in the Music City—went to L.A. designer Gavin Brodin, whose team tackled six half-floor units and a single “grand penthouse” (right) spanning the 40th floor. Brodin's concepts “elevate the Cumberland River and city skyline views via a tone-ontone palette and elements with open or low profiles, allowing all the interior and exterior beauty to be taken in at once,” he says. Expect move-in ready units by summer. nashvilleprivateresidences.com

SECOND ACTS

After meeting Brooklyn ceramicist Anne Weber Callahan through a former classmate, Georgia designer Ignacio Alvarez admits, “I was obsessed with her work; I immediately asked her to make me a personal dinnerware set.” Once Callahan learned Alvarez had previously tapped another artist to create a custom vessel for a Chicago project, it was she who suggested a collaboration. The concept was this: Alvarez would sketch the silhouettes; Callahan would throw and fire the pieces, then Alvarez would cull and curate. The resulting limited-run, six-piece stoneware collection—made to order in neutral clays and glazes, plus one with an exaggerated “lip” and suede adornments—fits the former stylist’s specifications perfectly. A second collection (set to include small accent furnishings), releases later this year. alvarezdesignstudio.com

CORTNEY BISHOP X HOLLAND & SHERRY Succeeding her first Harwood House collection, Charleston designer Cortney Bishop’s second fabric launch with Holland & Sherry, Kalos, offers a twist on the classics and a nod to her Greek roots. cortneybishop.com; harwood-house.com

On the partnership: “Holland & Sherry are the kind of creative partners who encourage artful risk-taking and praise my wish to design products that take the market by surprise.”

RAY BOOTH x ARTERIORS For his latest with Arteriors, Nashvillebased designer Ray Booth capitalizes on his successful existing line of lighting and accessories via sculptural new urn forms paired with steel carriages, producing poetic results. rayboothdesign.com; arteriorshome.com In his own words: “We’ve continued to blur the lines between old and new. I have always loved the concept of urn forms used in metal foundries; these heavy vessels pivoting along metal frames to pour out molten metals. These new pieces celebrate that idea in miniature.” On the partnership: “Arteriors continues to impress me with their network of craftspeople they’ve scouted from the world over. As a company that celebrates fresh design and embraces design partners, working with their savvy team has been extraordinary for me.”

CHRISTOPHER COLLECTION Birmingham is a city with outsized amounts of design talent, a disproportionate number of resources. But full-service design firm Christopher AI is on the forefront of changing that. Teaming the contemporary renovation of a former Homewood art gallery with a Craftsman-inspired, two-story annex, Christopher Collection provides an architectural fusion to underscore principals Chris Reebals’ and Joanna Goodman’s old-meets-new showroom concept. Among the offerings are blue-chip brands not previously available in Alabama—Janus et Cie, Officine Gullo—while wares by Verellen, Currey & Company, Montes Doggett and Matouk mix with works by collector-worthy artists. Not to be missed is Christopher AI’s line of signature bed swings, mirrors, bookcases, light fixtures and more. christophercollection.com

TRISH ANDERSEN RUGS

SCENE

DESIGN

Few folks in the carpet industry can approach the level of design darling Trish Andersen enjoys. The Savannah fiber artist first made a splash with her colorful, multidimensional wall hangings, then introduced “sweepable shag” floor mats that reinterpret them as prints. At last, after two years of product development, she’s released the real thing: a trio of mixed high cut-pile and loop-pile rug styles that boldly reinterprets her fine art. A translation of her signature tufting methods, the rugs are produced from her hometown of Dalton, Georgia, and meticulously hand-crafted by Indian artisans using Mediterranean wool. “I believe art should be accessible to all and lived with every day,” Andersen says of adapting her freehand techniques into reproducible rug designs. “In my work, I push surface texture, color and balance; it was vital to me that these elements be represented—from the varying pile heights, to the bold colors balanced by black-and-white stripes.” The line is available in up to a dozen standard sizes, with custom options available. trishandersenstudio.com

À LA CARTE

THE TWELVE THIRTY CLUB

launch photo by chia chong; à la carte photos by seth parker.

Nashville’s most extravagant new venue, The Twelve Thirty Club, comes from veteran restaurateur Sam Fox, but is bankrolled by none other than Tennessee native Justin Timberlake. The progressive three-story, 30,000-square-foot experience starts with a nostalgic honky-tonk on the ground floor, leads to a mezzanine-level speakeasy and 400-seat supper club (right), and culminates in a rooftop boîte (below) dotted with Janus et Cie furnishings. Design firm AvroKO leaned in to a “retro-future” design concept with its larger gestures rooted in Art Deco glamour, but color palette drawn from Nashville’s “countrypolitan” movement of the ’60s and ’70s—particularly the blues and greens, but especially the gleaming gold that threads each floor together. thetwelvethirtyclub.com

THREE DESIGNERS REFLECT ON AN INDELIBLE SPARK.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard

AS TOLD TO MICHELLE BRUNNER

When I was 12 years old, I began my career selling antiques from a stall in London’s Greenwich Market. It was the 1980s then, and Art Deco was the height of fashion. It was one of the first design periods that I studied, and from that, my passion grew. Because I came from a theatrical background—originally, I wanted to be an actor—it’s only natural that I would be drawn to a style so closely associated with Hollywood glamour. With the advent of cinema, Los Angeles boomed during the 1920s and 1930s, and extraordinary spaces, like the Cicada Club in downtown L.A. and the historic Sunset Tower hotel, were built. For me, the appeal of Art Deco lies in its association with decadence. The world had just come out of World War I, and there was reason to celebrate. People wanted drama and floridity. We left behind the Edwardian and Arts-and-Crafts periods, and turned almost instantly to this brand-new era symbolized by ornate geometric forms. Of all the Art Deco styles, I’m particularly fond of Egyptian Revival. It conjures the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, and with that, an air of adventure, travel and romance. In my work and in my own home, many Orientalist and Moroccan motifs blend with the geometric vibe and monochromatic palette of Art Deco. Recently, I drew inspiration from the period to inform a collection of inlaid stone and lacquer accessories for SV Casa. We did a series of beautiful cases that open into bars, inspired by Hermès and Louis Vuitton steamer trunks from the 1930s. They recall one of the first Art Deco pieces I ever bought: a 1920s alligator case, which makes me long for the time when travel was new. In those days, people used silver- and-gold jars in sleek cases for toiletries. We used to travel in such style! I’ve kept it with me throughout my journeys. It’s a great nod to my past, both in my dealing in objects of that era and my love of Art Deco itself. Martyn Lawrence Bullard on the steps leading to the pool and gardens of his Los Angeles home. The graphic patio tile nods to Art Deco geometrics.

RADAR

AS

I was born in Seoul, South Korea, but moved to Michigan when I was three. Most of my ideas about my home country came from my parents, who were passionate about collecting and preserving Korean art. One of my favorite early memories was flying to New York City with my mother. She was shopping for a scholar screen— an artwork meant to decorate the study of a Yangban (a scholar of the highest class). They depict items a Yangban might exhibit to show his refinement: books, a peony, ink brushes. My mother was also searching for folk art—colorful, informal paintings, often with suggestive subject matter. I learned then that there were two schools of Korean art: the school based on courtly formalities, and the folk art hung in the homes of merchants or shamans. Adolescent me became fascinated with folk art. Rabbits smoking pipes! Mountains in every color under the sun! The rainbow hanbok of young girls! To me, these visions were the heartbeat of traditional Korean art—and today, they inspire every inch of my design aesthetic.

Some people think decorating is about picking pretty fabrics, but it is rooted in soils far deeper than that. As I design this home, I think of all the people who have lived here over the last two centuries, my family tree that dates back 700 years, and my children who will carry the future— and who, I hope, will tell everyone’s story.

Last year, I purchased a home in New York’s Hudson Valley: a classic Colonial in the most idyllic countryside setting. As I dreamt of how to decorate, my thoughts turned to my heritage. One project I’m working on is designing a wallpaper with Fromental, inspired by the papers out of East Asia, which were traded in the New World in the 17th century. I’ll be incorporating both the structure of courtly paintings and the brightness of folk art, all presented in a modern way.

Fashioning a Narrative

TOLD

Rayman Boozer

AS TOLD TO STEPHANIE HUNT

RADAR

AS

Ever since I was a child on a farm in Indiana, fashion has been my obsession. I was the middle child of nine—the Jan Brady of our family, and sort of invisible. After seeing The Mary Tyler Moore Show, my dream became to live in a city in an apartment. At age 8, I made a pact that I would one day move to New York and do glamorous things with my life. We didn’t have a ton of money, but my mother had amazing style. She made a lot of our clothes—think: red-white-and-blue bell bottoms with matching shirts. Even at age 5, I was picky about what colors I wanted to wear, and I hated being dressed like my brothers—I wanted control! Growing up, I fell in love with magazines. I’d go down to the local newsstand and pour over Vogue and GQ. One day, a handful of subscription cards fell out, and I noticed the “bill me later” part. I asked the shopkeeper if I could have them, filled them out, and for three months, I built a library. In high school, my parents let me get subscriptions—but I held onto those issues and read them over and over.

A lot of people see fashion as trivial, but I believe that it’s a nonverbal way of communicating with like-minded people. Especially in Manhattan, you’re always presenting yourself to the public in some way. For me, fashion is armor. It’s a silent means of declaring who you are. Rayman Boozer stands at the threshold of his Manhattan closet wearing a Prada sweater and slacks (his favorite fashion house) and Tods loafers.

When I went to college, I declared a fashion design major before finding interiors. What I am is a strong fashion editor—I’m good at pairing things together in interesting ways: colors, textures, attitudes—and a mix of high-low. My velvet Gucci blazer with a Uniqlo sweater; a leather Prada trench coat with my favorite Scotch and Soda jeans. Fashion also feeds my approach to color—you see daring combinations on the runway before the home. This, in part, is what keeps my interiors optimistic and open-minded.

Provence

Happy place: About 7 years ago, I rented a 300-year-old house outside of Avignon with my family—and it was kind of an epiphany. We’d spend mornings by the pool, then drive through the Rhône and visit towns, like Roussillon, which has this incredible sandstone, terra-cotta and ochre palette. Only fitting: Provence has a similar climate to Los Angeles, and the building materials—stucco, painted wood windows and shutters, tiled roofs—are essentially the same as Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, a primary vernacular of Southern California. Dream delivered: From the minute you walk in the front gate, you’re in this other world of pea gravel, olive trees and lavender. You enter the house through a pair of French doors, and it’s all very open and transparent. To me, it’s transportive emotionally. The clients, the design team and I were all so taken with the authenticity of the Provençal lifestyle; we tried to capture it’s relaxed, casual elegance in this home. willigerarchitect.com

Rockefeller Center

RADAR

Designer Bill Musso found inspiration for his Atlanta condo in a beloved landmark’s Art Deco mystique.

main photo: getty. inset: lauren rubinstein.

Early influence: My grandmother was enamored with Radio City Music Hall. Whenever she had the opportunity, she would take me to see a live show or a movie. We’d spend time walking around Rockefeller Center, and she would point out all of the friezes and statues. Aha moment: Four years ago, I did the 30 Rock tour. I wasn’t so interested in the TV aspect, but in wandering the halls and common spaces and taking pictures! Ode to Deco: The marble floor in my entry was inspired by an elevator waiting area at 30 Rock; I worked with The Rug Company on a runner that’s literally an adaptation of the carpeting in Radio City Music Hall; and my interior doors have the same Art Deco-influenced, raised panel design. Balancing act: Inspiration is all about knowing when to peel back. Like Coco Chanel famously advised: stand in front of the mirror and remove one item. I’d never want to feel like I’m living in a time capsule (as much as I love wearing a smoking jacket). mussodesigngroup.com

A Vintage Photograph

Unexpected idea: This photo of Sonny Bono and former Mayor Frank Bogert was the first inspiration image we showed our client. We overlaid it with a pink filter to tease out the magical light that happens at sunset in Palm Springs. There’s a rugged romance—a laid-back, masculine mood to it—that sung to us. Desert journey: There’s no front yard or backyard, per se. You enter through a portal in the Ficus, then move through these different sequences that are always changing: a fire pit surrounded by muhly grass, a palo Verde grove, an olive tree dining orchard. It speaks to this notion of traveling on horseback through an ephemeral landscape. Message received: For this project, we “borrowed” palm trees from the neighbors’ yards—and the San Jacinto mountains peaking above the hedges. At sunset, with the pink grasses in full bloom, the image of the cowboys and the palms—that feeling of a total Palm Springs escape—is really what you’re getting. sdisf.com

The English Country House

Mood board: From the first time I saw the property, the story in my mind was that it was a kooky British grandmother’s house that had been passed down to the next generation. It’s a large, new construction home, but the way the rooms were laid out—the intimacy of scale and the classical millwork— suggested history. Hero piece: I’ve always been drawn to tapestries, and here, they provided a strong “old manor house” through line. We hung a large 18thcentury Flemish tapestry in the living room and wallpapered the dining room in a Scalamandré print for a European country house vibe. Homework: I pinned about a billion pictures. Upton House, a Georgian manor in Gloucestershire that we referenced, has this hall with the most perfect minty green, which inspired the shades of celadon throughout. I love historical colors; tertiary tones are so much more interesting. studiohus.com

Sophia Loren

High-octane starlet glamour inspired Samantha Todhunter’s interpretation of an Aspen ski retreat.

main photo: oliver clarke. inset: getty.

Modern muse: Our projects often begin with a sensibility imbued by a person, and in this case, Sophia Loren was one of our initial drivers for the mood and design intent; she’s the very embodiment of la dolce vita. Dramatic details: My clients wanted to transform a pastiche Colorado lodge into a home that was cool, effortless and glamorous; a space that lights up at night for entertaining, but also provides a languishing daytime salon. A core element to our work is always ‘the mix’ and for this dolce vita-driven project, the mix manifests in interesting combinations of textures and weaves. Think: mohair velvets and metallic glazed linens, marble and lacquer, and patinated brass elements. Secret sauce: It can be easy to go over the top, especially when you are going for high-impact design. The art is to know when you have done enough to tell the story. A successful room is all about artful layering drawn from travel, books, nature, art, history—and iconic people. samanthatodhunter.com

For a new home in Point Reyes Station, California, architect Dave Sturm channeled a design icon’s purist approach. Origin story: Our client grew up visiting Mexico and had loved Barragán since childhood. Field work: I was a budding architect when Barragán won the Pritzker Prize, and had been wanting to visit his home for decades. This project prompted my wife and I to spend two weeks in Mexico City. We visited several museums a day, and many Barragán buildings. I immersed myself in his spatial relationships. Good stuff: Barragán had this really limited, yet influential palette; a very high-modern aesthetic. His pink is almost like the national color. Key details: Nothing extraneous; we brought the walls all the way down to the floor—no trim, baseboards or moldings. And we used steel casement-style windows for the cleanest sight lines. Take it back: It’s a reference, not an homage. We were inspired by his simplicity. If Barragán had signed on, I imagine the walls might be pink. butlerarmsden.com

WITH HER LATEST COLLECTION, DESIGNER LORI WEITZNER DELIVERS AN ODE TO CENTRAL PARK. W R I T T E N B Y H E AT H E R C A R N E Y

Imagine wandering through Central Park. Bright pink petals highlight a grid between cobblestones. Intricate moldings and sandstone carvings come into focus on stair railings. At sunset, the city skyline turns from orange to golden to purple to gray. It’s this romantic setting that provided designer Lori Weitzner with hope and refuge during the dark days of the pandemic—while also opening her eyes to patterns, textures and colors hidden in plain sight. “It was a lesson in the idea that you’re so familiar with something that you stop looking,” says the designer. “I began to see everything in a whole new way.” The resulting collection is an ode to Central Park—an exploration of fabrics and wallcoverings that captures the beauty of a city in the midst of rebirth. “I love New York. It’s what keeps my senses alive. You pass a bakery, then you pass litter on the street. It’s all there,” says Weitzner. “Central Park is an oasis to the urban grit.” IPhone in hand, the designer would “click, click, click” on weekly rambles through her sanctuary, then return to her quiet Chelsea design studio where she printed and arranged the photos on a large white table. From there, the creative work would begin—editing, sorting, sketching and playing with colors and materials. Chariot, for example, a soft jacquard linen with subtle damask patterning, evolved from an image she snapped of traditional stonework near Bethesda Fountain. “We painted it in the studio, and then, because we didn’t want such a traditional pattern, we took a sponge

Designer Lori Weitzner turned to Central Park as muse for her latest collection of textiles and wallcoverings. The Mesmerize print, shown here on an armchair, was inspired by a carving at Bethesda Fountain.

and broke it up with texture so it would feel eroded,” explains Weitzner. Illumination, an embroidered textile, stems from sketches of foliage in the Shakespeare Garden, while Mesmerize, a cut velvet print, takes its cues from the fountain’s stone filigree. With the line complete and her schedule picking up, it might be surprising to hear that the designer still carves out time to walk in the park—but it’s a habit she’s not willing to give up. “The pandemic made me slow down and appreciate the details,” reflects Weitzner. “This collection is about nature, but it’s also about seeing things anew.”

By the 1930s, Eileen Gray was a solidified furniture designer and architect—a rare accomplishment for a woman by early 20th-century standards. Of her many contributions to the modern movement, the Irish-born creative designed the ubiquitous (and replicated) adjustable side table, which she designed specifically for her home dubbed E-1027, shown above, on the French Riviera. Gray set out to build the residence— her first ever—in her late 40s, and it still stands today as a survey of modern design.

PASSION PROJECT MATTHEW QUINN

What a beautifully layered space! This kitchen is an homage to the owner, whose zeal for art, food and life shines through in the design. When she and her family moved from Mexico to the Atlanta area, they acquired a charming bungalow property and she promptly saved her pennies for 12 years to have her dream “Matthew Quinn” kitchen, as she explained, which was truly the ultimate compliment. Wow. What did she request? Thinking outside of the box was important to the client. She wanted to make the kitchen uniquely her own, which included covering the walls with art, creating plenty of storage for cookbooks and even adding cork flooring that provides comfort when standing and cooking. But it’s really about this funky mix of colors and materials that works so well together. Talk to us about the details. The Amazonia Quartzite screamed “bar area.” The boldly colored veining of the stone is paired with an equally striking blue paint on the cabinetry that creates a vibrant, fun moment. In the kitchen, white-glass countertops and high-gloss Macassar Ebony veneer cabinetry balance out the La Cornue range and brass finishes. Makassar Ebony Veneer Cabinetry, downsviewkitchens.com. Amazonite Stone, abcworldwidestone.com.

STRATEGIC APPROACH “I fell in love with kitchens because of their technicality—I like to focus on the architectural plan first; I’m a big stickler for rectangular and square rooms. From there, we address access points, center lines, location of appliances, storage, circulation, ergonomics and functionality. After nearly 30 years in the business, I can immediately pinpoint what needs to be tweaked, but if the kitchen works well, I know I can make it beautiful.” matthew-quinn.com

CALMING INFLUENCE CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK What was the inspiration for this serene palette? A big, beautiful picture window decorates the kitchen, and we didn’t want the rest of the space to compete with that focal point, so there was a conscious effort to keep the colors more earthy and muted. We went with a two-tone paint effect for the cabinetry: a lovely olive or sage green on the island and then a warmer gray on the perimeter. Walk us through the rest of the design. The scheme was about making it simple and quiet while keeping it spacious. There wasn’t a strong desire to fill the walls with unnecessary cabinetry; rather our focus was on the

materials and finishes. A handmade subway tile with varying shades makes for a beautiful backsplash that provides subtle movement; we avoided anything too shiny and went with brushed and satin nickel hardware. How did you approach scale? This is a very large kitchen with a barreled ceiling. So we grounded the environment with a large island featuring cutting blocks at both ends and a custom pewter-and-nickel metal hood that anchors one wall. The island table developed into a multifunctional element with storage and seating, as well as a place to work, prepare food and entertain.

TOP TAKEAWAY “The key is to be a good listener, have an inquisitive mind and a holistic or all-encompassing approach. If you watch what happens in most people’s kitchens today, it’s not kitchen related. It’s a gathering space, an entertaining space, a quiet space. Sometimes it’s a retreat or a place to relax—it’s all these things. We have to understand how the kitchen is being used because this room has matured into the most important space in the home. It’s critical to get the design right. Trust the people you’re working with—a kitchen renovation is an everlasting project.” peacockhome.com La Jolla Scone, paulferrante.com.

HERITAGE MOMENT SARAH BLANK

This kitchen is in an older home, right? It’s an absolutely stunning Spanish Renaissance residence that was built in the early 1900s along the Hudson River. Unfortunately, the kitchen was in bad shape after a recent update, but I was lucky that the client wanted to go back to its historic character. I am a big believer in taking from the past to create the future and spent a lot of time understanding the original aesthetic of this property.

How does your background inform your designs? I love classical architecture and historic structures—I’ve been a part of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art for a long time. Everything I do now, even after all this time, goes back to the aesthetic of old homes and what they teach us.

LUXESOURCE.COM

Sarah Blank Design Studio chose Farrow & Ball’s Stone Blue for the island in this Irvington, New York, kitchen by Taconic Builders. A BlueStar range, Miele oven and custom hood complete the scheme.

EXPERT TIP “Here’s a trick for anyone embarking on a new kitchen project: Do not clean up when the designer comes over to see how you live. If you tidy up before I arrive, how am I going to know what the problems are? I spend a lot of time talking to clients and asking what they want, but what tells me even more is opening all the cabinets and drawers and looking at their inventory and how everything is stored. Once I know what’s behind closed doors, I can design your kitchen! My new book, Classic Kitchens for Modern Living, is certainly a culmination of everything I have learned over the past 40 years!” sarahblankdesignstudio.com

Where did you start? Before I did anything, there were several architectural changes that needed to be made, including taking down a wall, reworking a window and altering the ceiling. Then, I began the mission of taking a very narrow kitchen and making it functional. A lot of the elements, such as the metalwork and wood detailing, are inspired by 19th-century European kitchens.

“ A hand-painted, high-gloss cabinetry color was customized around the wallcovering in this Short Hills, New Jersey, project. We always ask and try to push our clients to do something a little more unexpected in smaller spaces. The outcome was beautiful.”

“The client had an impressive collection of vintage glassware and entertained a lot, so from the very beginning of our conversation we knew the bar would be an important component. The homeowner was drawn to the vibrant color and stone elements. The resulting happy mix is truly a reflection of her.” –MATTHEW QUINN

“ T his Stamford, Connecticut, jewel of a room is both a wet bar and wine room, as well as a butler’s pantry. The homeowner fell in love with the tiger maple wood, while the high-gloss ceiling and its reflective quality make the room feel deceptively large.” –SARAH BLANK

JEAN LIN, COLONY In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, then-design journalist Jean Lin sparked an idea: invite local New York City artists to craft works from debris for storm relief. In the process, Lin grew familiar with the growth and representation struggles faced by independent makers—and the idea for a new, community-driven gallery model was born. Where the industry-standard commission hovers around 50 percent, Colony takes a smaller fraction of each sale, and charges a stabilized monthly co-op fee. Their contract also includes a non-exclusivity clause, which “shows our true intention of putting the bottom line of the designers we rep before our own,” says Lin. Expanding its influence and capital, Colony has since launched an in-house consultancy offering marketing, art direction and interior design services. “The vision moving forward is that these branches of business scale in tandem,” says Lin. “Which goes back to Colony’s founding spirit and genuine belief that all ships rise with the tide.” goodcolony.com

THE CURATOR

THE INNOVATOR

“I don’t love the word ‘disruption,’ but I am passionate about asking the question, ‘how can we make people’s lives easier?’ And I think the answer to that lies in meeting them where they are,” shares Anderson Somerselle. For Somerselle, a veteran of the textiles industry, this passion manifested in a digital-first showroom designed to aggregate boutique lines—as well as their up-to-date stock numbers and samples—in one destination. “It’s an honest response to witnessing how many designers and clients start their inspiration process online,” he notes. With the lower overhead associated with a digital footprint, Somerselle also provides a more affordable representation avenue for smaller brands. “It made sense to bring together these amazing artisans in a virtual showroom first, because there’s more reach,” he explains. “Eventually, we’ll open a physical space, but that will be a totally different experience. I want people to say, ‘Wow! I want to live here.’ ” somerselle.com

THE RECONCEIVERS NOAM DVIR AND DANIEL RAUCHWERGER, BOND

In a past life, Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger worked as critics at the Israeli newspaper Haaretz before falling in love, heading west to earn their masters at Harvard and founding BoND, a holistic architecture and design firm focused on expanding traditional ideologies of home. “In the residential environment, there’s this mold of how a space should be organized—but design for non-nuclear families looks different,” explains Dvir, pointing to the themes of gathering and desire that often distinguish their work. “Design should explore many different identities and lifestyles, and we really wear that on our sleeves.” With a fast-expanding residential practice, the couple has their sights set on more cultural projects in the commercial space. (They recently designed Company Gallery, a leading queer art institution, and are fast at work on a trans-led after-hours nightclub.) “It’s very important to us to work on projects that people will have access to, and that feed us spiritually,” says Rauchwerger, adding, “the real fun comes in sharing.” bureaund.com


ZOE FELDMAN, ZOE FELDMAN DESIGN

“I truly don’t know a lot about sustainability—and that’s kind of the point!” demurs Zoe Feldman. For the Washington, D.C.-based designer, the birth of her daughter in 2018 collided with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s devastating special report on global warming, spurring her to evaluate her own role in the climate crisis. After researching avenues of impact—and

THE ACTIVIST

upon discovering that planting a tree only costs 5 cents— she designed a green pledge as a core pillar of her business. Aptly named Our Beautiful Planet, the framework includes donating her consultation fee to an environmental charity (then matching it upon contract signing), planting 100 trees for every approved design proposal (offsetting its carbon footprint), and a commitment to sourcing 80 percent vintage. Feldman hopes to turn this working template into a movement that designers can adapt to suit their practice. “These are easy things to implement,” she says. “We’re trying to show the industry that we can all take very small, simple steps and potentially, make a massive impact.” zoefeldmandesign.com


THE STORYTELLERS HOMAN RAJAI AND ELENA DENDIBERIA, STUDIO AHEAD

For Homan Rajai and Elena Dendiberia, design is both a global and local affair. What it is not is siloed around Eurocentrism. Meeting as young designers, the pair, with their respective Iranian and Russian roots, felt similarly disconnected from the world of European antiques they were living in, so they built a new framework. Questions like, What philosophies do you relate to? distinguish their client questionnaire, and Rajai and Dendiberia champion a diverse network of vendors working in traditional crafts. “There’s this assumption that—say, Persian rugs—are in the past tense. We’re educating our clients that there are living, breathing, modern-day craftspeople making these pieces,” says Rajai. At the other end of the spectrum, the firm is devoted to amplifying design at a hyper-local scale—and boasts a fast-expanding production wing of collaborations between Northern California artists. “Think of Alice Waters and what she did with farm-to-table,” says Rajai. “We’re bringing the same idea to design.” studioahead.com

THE BOTANIST JESSICA VIOLA, VIOLA GARDENS

A promise to “seek biological over technical solutions” nests at the core of Jessica Viola’s approach to the garden. Certified in ecological and permaculture design, Viola (one of a handful of licensed female landscape contractors in California) cut her teeth rehabilitating lawns into gardens in the California drought. Those regenerative principles have propelled her business since. Whether sculpting brims in the landscape to better harness rainfall, or planting for erosion control and fire resistance, Viola’s bottom line is embracing the intrinsic characteristics of each property, fostering the age-old relationships between people, flora and fauna amidst a changing climate. In this way, tackling the crisis becomes a creative exercise: “When you’re coming at things from a place of fear, you block what’s possible,” says Viola. “Instead of trying to solve all the world’s problems, I’m facilitating conditions for more awareness—and going one garden at a time.” violagardens.com

SHOPE RENO WHARTON “Our philosophy is to create homes and spaces that reflect the location, owners’ interests, timeless design beliefs and a strong link to craftsmanship.”

K

ARCHITECTS

JERRY HUPY, ARTHUR HANLON, MICHAEL MCCLUNG, DON AITKEN AND JOHN GASSETT, PARTNERS shoperenowharton.com 203.852.7250 shoperenowharton

nown for designing beautiful, functional and enduring homes that enrich the lives of their residents, Shope Reno Wharton (SRW) is celebrated for its refined residential architecture. But the firm also designs extraordinary equestrian, golf and hospitality projects. The common denominator is that they are all informed by the firm’s design philosophy and expertise. Energy efficiency, attention to environment and enjoyment, and dependability over the course of many generations all guide the process regardless of style, location or scope. Every SRW project results from a comprehensive understanding of the site, along with an intentional and

mindful collaboration between the architect and owner. And each design is imbued with the unique sensibilities one can only derive from a true love of building and craft. Shope Reno Wharton was established in 1981 and is led today by five partners: Jerry Hupy, Arthur Hanlon, Michael McClung, Don Aitken and John Gassett. Their longtime collaboration and devotion to the firm has attracted and retained a skilled staff of talented architects. Together, they offer attentive service and an inspiring portfolio of projects located across the country. Reflected in each commission is the firm’s commitment to architectural character and an understanding of how people aspire to live their lives.

ASK THE EXPERT What is the key to work-life balance? Approaching each day with purpose, whether it be personal or professional, and maintaining a level of curiosity. Share your influences and inspirations. We have always been motivated by the essentials in architecture: light and shadow, solid and void, axis and symmetry, scale and proportion. Historical examples, and places that powerfully utilize these ideas, are always inspirational to us. Up to this point, what do you feel has been your greatest success? That we have created identifiable designs of great character, from the master concept down to the details. They are like great art, which has an impact from a distance and reveals more and more as you study it and move closer.

Right A dramatic two-story stair hall combines elements of traditional composition, textural materials and streamlined detailing for a comfortable, sophisticated feel. Opposite Graceful and tectonic ceiling details and various seating options create a warm, inviting backdrop for family gatherings under this captivating covered porch.

MURPHY MAUDE INTERIORS

I

“We continuously seek out local artists on the rise and look through the lens of art to supply originality to all of our work.”

n 2014, Leslie Murphy poured her heart and soul into the ultimate project: her own home. Upon completion, it was published widely, revered on the internet and the inspiration behind many a referral. Such was the moment that launched Murphy Maude Interiors. Today, the Memphisbased firm boasts a seven-person team and is looking to acquire a new building of up to 25,000 square feet, which will also house Leslie’s latest endeavor. “This space will allow us to bring Mable, our new line of textiles, to life,” she says. In addition to this development, Leslie and team have one other fresh venture. “While we generally focus on highend residential and will continue to predominantly do that, we are now uniquely positioned to work in luxury boutique commercial environments, too.” But whether working in quaint neighborhoods or chic hotels, Murphy Maude Interiors is guided by the elements for which its designs have been known and beloved: Southern sophistication, modern elegance,

LESLIE MURPHY, OWNER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR murphymaude.com 901.848.6402 murphymaudeinteriors

timeless luxury, clean lines, original art and custom, handcrafted pieces. Of course, each space is also the result of customization. Asked to share the key to a successful bespoke project, Leslie says, “Trust. We build relationships with our clients, so they know we are working in their best interests.”

How do you include the client in your creative process? They are involved from day one, with a kick-off meeting where we get to know them, their priorities, how they live and what they envision. After that, we will also have a series of milestone meetings that involve inspiration images, Revit floor plans, furniture and finish selections and, finally, a three-dimensional rendering. Up to this point, what do you feel has been your greatest success? The building and development of a talented group of humans who are passionate and committed to this work. They bring both style and integrity to all they do. What type of project would you love to take on? We would love to design a unique, storied boutique hotel positioned in the mountains or on the beach.

hile many interior designers are quite focused on the aesthetics they enjoy, Robin Rains is more concerned with finding the perfect fit in each client. “I’m an open book, and I try to encourage my clients to feel the same way,” she says. “More than the type or style of project, it’s important to understand the type of clients I look for. Rather than someone traditionally minded who prefers not to extend themselves, I seek clients that want to break the mold and take risks. When the client is open to stretching themselves, I am inspired to push boundaries and create something beautiful.” It’s a perspective that has certainly paid off.

Through her firm and showroom of vintage pieces, Robin Rains Interior Design + Antiques, the creative has built a base of talented team members and repeat business from clients who have flown to her Nashville office from all over the world. As a result of such a resounding reputation, the firm recently expanded. “We will now have an office in Los Angeles, too,” Rains says. “We look forward to more new projects via this location.” Still, when asked to identify her most significant achievement, Rains doesn’t point to any of this. Instead, she says, “I truly feel that my greatest success has been landing in this profession that ignites my passion every day.”

ASK THE EXPERT Please name influences and inspirations that inform your work. In one word: France. My infatuation with France, the people who live there and French culture knows no bounds. I’m forever grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to travel to France. Whether it’s the beauty of the French countryside, the sheer quality of a croissant I buy at a happenstance bakery in the city or the sensibility that so many of its residents live their lives with, it almost doesn’t feel possible for me to get enough! What part has the digital age played in the success of your firm? Retail is changing and we’re excited to take part in the digital revolution of it. With that in mind, our carefully curated selection of antique and vintage pieces is now available on Chairish and our website.

Circa Lighting founder Gale Singer’s highly personalized Savannah home took shape with the aid of residential designer Rudolph Colby and designer Michael Del Piero. In the great room, plush upholstery by Lee Industries forms a tête-à-tête-esque conversation group. Not far from the sliding-glass LaCantina Doors to the terrace, HC28’s walnut-framed Palm Beach armchair pairs with a Holland MacRae Kilt side table.


W

hen it comes to her list of wants, Gale Singer, founder and president of Circa Lighting, does not waver. She is as discerning about crown molding (pass), vibrant art (irresistible) and window treatments (no, thank you) as she is about pendants, sconces and chandeliers. After about 15 years of pondering, her agenda for her own Savannah home pinpointed everything from a high-functioning kitchen with great traffic flow to pocket glass doors that open to reveal a saltwater pool and sculpted greenery. Once she found a lot she loved in an eclectic, tucked-away neighborhood not far from the Vernon River, all those years of dreaming finally came to fruition. By the time she turned over her inspiration folder to Rudolph Colby—the residential designer behind more than a decade’s worth of Circa Lighting stores—Gale felt confident he was the person to bring her vision to life. “Rudy is an artist,” she says of Colby, who, working with general contractor Josh Brooks, also orchestrated the home’s landscaping and pool. “He has a wonderful sense of style, detail and proportion. His designs are classic and timeless.” Gale is a hands-on client. “The most fun we have, ever, is when we sit down together, spread out a piece of paper and each pick up a pencil,” Colby says of their tactile process. Having initially conceived of an on-site renovation that ultimately had to be scrapped due to water damage beneath the property’s existing house, the residential designer’s “take two,” as he calls it, followed the original home’s layout quite closely. What transpired was a practice in extreme simplification, subtracting everything extra. “Any time there was a line or shadow that could be removed from a window or door or piece of hardware, she would nix it,” Colby says of his client, who dictated the project’s concealed door hinges and nearly invisible reveals. “There’s nothing trendy about it,” Gale adds of the residence, which cleverly combines modernleaning and ranch-inspired influences behind a façade of slender white Norman brick and horizontal board-and-batten siding. Though her linear, tightly landscaped home might diverge from the typical Lowcountry vernacular, it’s connected to the fabric of the city in a manner very personal to its owner: fine art. “I’m lucky

to live in a place with such close access to the Savannah College of Art & Design and all the wonderful artists that have come out of that university,” says Gale, an ardent collector. Her expansive art assortment comes to life thanks to sizable skylights—Colby’s solution for illuminating the east-west-oriented house from the inside out. “You get direct sun at different times of the year, and it’s really quite fabulous,” Colby reveals. As a lover of natural light, Gale eschewed window treatments in most rooms, adding extra layers by way of Circa Lighting fixtures. However, her selections were not chosen for dramatic impact, rather for subtlety. Most had remained stalwarts on her personal wish list for years—particularly a pair of Thomas O’Brienauthored pendants named in her honor, which today suspend over her kitchen island. To ensure interiors that would incorporate all of these items masterfully, the discriminating homeowner looked to Michael Del Piero, a designer whom Gale praises for her “neutral palettes, and ability to layer textures and to curate objects.” Del Piero, who had previously designed Gale’s Chicago loft, has long felt a sense of aesthetic alignment with her client. “What Gale wanted is what my firm is known for: livable, approachable and interesting interiors with nothing too precious or fussy,” she notes. Decorating decisions between the two were uncommonly swift, with most made on a single trip to High Point Market. “For three days, in the pouring rain, we literally furnished the entire house, inside and out,” Del Piero recalls. Together, the pair selected deep sofas with simple lines, intriguing Louise Nevelson-esque nightstands, even an oak dining table to sub as an oversize desk in the grass cloth-clad home office. “Gale is super no-frills; she wants the best but she wants it simple,” says Del Piero, who finished off spaces with antique rugs to warm up the sleek wood and stone floors. In sum, the lighting maven’s Savannah home demonstrates her strong understanding not only of design, but of herself. No space is wasted, and every element is optimized for the way she wants to live. “She has a really sharp eye,” Colby concludes. “There’s a place for everything and everything has meaning. And I think there’s a strong reason for that: Gale sees things differently.” Certainly, in the case of curating her own home, she’s seen the light.

Inside the pool is an azure-toned mosaic by Florida Stucco. “The color we chose reminds me of Turks and Caicos,” Gale says. The chaise lounges and seating are by Kingsley Bate, and the midcentury hourglass planters are Willy Guhl originals.

A Good Vintage In Birmingham, a young family breathes an exuberant new spirit into their midcentury home. W R I T T E N BY M A I L E P I N G E L P H O T O G R A P H Y BY H E C T O R M A N U E L S A N C H E Z

Architecture: James B. Laughlin, James B. Laughlin Residential Design Interior Design: Elizabeth Miles and Janie Jones, Hundley Hilton Interiors Home Builder: Robert Fry, Fry Construction, Inc.


Designers Elizabeth Miles and Janie Jones created a jewel box effect in the blue-toned bar of this Mountain Brook, Alabama, residence. The ruddy tones of a vintage rug from Paige Albright Orientals and a framed oil painting by Louisiana folk artist Lorraine Gendron lend appealing contrasts. In the dining room beyond, Kelly Wearstler’s Rousseau chandelier for Visual Comfort & Co. illuminates a tableau of colorful vases and cachepots from Ruby Ansley Interiors.


L

ife in a midcentury abode in Mountain Brook—a Birmingham suburb beloved for its charming in-town villages—certainly had heaps of appeal for its owners. But craving a floor plan that would better suit them and their two young sons, the couple contemplated whether to leave or to stay. After two years of searching for an alternative, the answer became clear: “There is never a right time to gut your house,” remarks the wife, “but we love our neighborhood. We realized there was no better place for us.” Luckily, she and her husband found the right collaborator in residential designer James B. Laughlin. Having grown up close by, he brought the perfect combination of familiarity and fresh vision. “Jimmy understood the neighborhood and respected its integrity,” the wife explains. Adding designers Elizabeth Miles and Janie Jones, a duo best known for bridging the gap between traditional and midcentury elements, ensured a residential redo that would be better than new. The result is a cheerfully contemporary home that still exudes 1950s charm, hosting black tie dinners and children’s birthday parties with equal aplomb. “The house had great bones but was in desperate need of a style injection,” Laughlin recounts. Key to the renovation was refreshing its existing red-brick exterior and formerly foreboding front door. “It wasn’t the most glamorous house on the street,” he admits. So for the home’s reinvention, “we wanted to create something with more character; a jewel box of sorts.” Laughlin created what he calls “a more 1920s look”—still petite and low-slung like the original, but with a bit more grace and refinement, courtesy of a new white-washed brick façade, classic dentil molding and custom Spanish cedar French doors that open to an Ashlandpatterned bluestone terrace. Working with builder Robert Fry, Laughlin— who draws everything by hand—likewise reconfigured the interior layout. “The original house was somewhat maze-like and lacking an intuitive flow,” he explains. Now, the entrance allows better connection to the grounds, with children running in and out, dinner guests spilling out onto the terrace, and the main living areas and bedrooms positioned to overlook the wooded landscape behind the house. “We used

real materials and 100-year-old construction methods,” Laughlin continues. “Tying old to new and making it seem seamless can be a challenge, but Robert did it.” While the renovation was taking shape, Miles and Jones got to work fashioning interiors that are traditional without being stuffy, elegant without being prim. “Our client is originally from New Orleans and loves to entertain, so we wanted the house to be colorful, fun and approachable,” Jones explains. As a family of game-players and readers, their clients’ must-haves included a custom dining table that separates into three smaller tables for poker night and a genteel library that Laughlin outfitted with quartersawn white-oak built-ins. But the room isn’t just any book repository; “this is a sexy, sophisticated study,” says Jones. The green-hued nook features a tufted sofa custom made for the husband, an animal-print rug and a roundel window—a classical touch that’s quintessentially Laughlin. Says Miles: “As the masculine counterpart to the feminine floral chinoiserie of the dining room, it makes for a beautiful juxtaposition.” Beyond the dining room’s painted double doors, she and Jones bedecked the bar with sky blue grass cloth and coordinating high-gloss trim, creating a truly memorable design moment. “Elizabeth and Janie leaned in to maximalism, which was a new concept to me,” the wife notes. “But they did it tastefully.” In the family room, presided over by a framed panel of Gucci’s heron wallpaper, a comparatively neutral palette takes effect. “You can watch the seasons change through the windows,” Jones reveals. And because their clients’ bedroom faces the treetops, the pair chose sage green upholstery for the bed, cosseting the space with ivory draperies and framed botanical studies that pay respect to the wooded surroundings. Adds Miles: “The windows unveil the lush foliage: a canvas of trees and sky to outline nature’s beauty.” Reflecting on the project, the wife says she sensed tremendous dedication from the design team at all stages. “It’s like they were all building their own home, and everyone rolled up their sleeves,” she recounts. “Jimmy and Robert brought in the right amount of light and detail, while Elizabeth and Janie injected the New Orleans character I love: laissez-faire, revelry, hospitality— and a little indulgence,” she effuses. “This house is comfortable, curated and intentional. For us, there’s no better place to be.”

orn in Virginia to parents who fled communist Czechoslovakia, firstgeneration American artist Zuzka Vaclavik comes to her canvas with no shortage of colorful stories. As a child growing up in Munich, taxiing to school on a military base, she found her solace in art. Then, upon returning stateside with her family as a preteen, she discovered its ability to bridge cultures. Today her home is Athens, Georgia, where Vaclavik earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Georgia following a stint in Cambodia. “I feel like my aesthetic is different than most people,” says the artist, who served as an adjunct professor of drawing and painting at the university for a decade. “I think that comes from all the traveling and, fortunately, being exposed to world-class museums and many different cultures from a young age.” Her 2016 foray into ceramics was intended to be a reprieve. “I thought it would be something lighthearted, to take me away from painting a little bit. But it became serious as soon as I touched the clay,” says Vaclavik, who today toggles between a duo of Athens studios. “Pottery is more physical than painting, more tactile; I love that feeling of being in the mud, creating something directly from my hands.” Her body of work in clay—largely porcelain, stoneware and earthenware—capitalizes on her drawing and painting repertoire but has opened up new worlds of discovery. Emblazoned with whimsical motifs using a needle or traditional pin tool, her silhouettes range from open vessels and wall-hung plates to antiquity-inspired alabastrons. Though her ceramics practice is nascent, Vaclavik’s paintings have evolved over the years to embody imaginative explorations of color relationships. Using a multi-step technique that includes precise masking, she lays down vibrant planes of color that have drawn comparisons to Matisse’s cutouts. With works on view regionally at Gregg Irby Gallery, Brad Walker Pottery and others, Vaclavik’s paintings will head to Iowa’s National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in 2023. Whether a pot or a painting, Vaclavik likes to leave each piece open to interpretation: “I think of it like a poem,” she says. “The nice thing about abstract work is that it engages; the viewer can bring something of themselves into it.”


Georgia artist Zuzka Vaclavik employs sketchbooks to work out palettes for her paintings: watercolors on paper as well as acrylics on canvas partly inspired by 1960s psychedelia. “Colors hold different vibrations, and the effect changes based on the elements you combine together,” she says. Displayed in the artist’s Athens studio (below), a selection of ceramic works reveals multinational and multicultural influences.

In Nashville’s West Meade neighborhood, a classic new abode weaves a tale of its owners with a joyful conclusion.

HAPPY ENDINGS


Architecture: Preston Shea, P. Shea Design Interior Design: Natalie Hager, Natalie Hager Interiors Home Builder: John Montgomery, Montgomery Classic Construction


For the entry and stair hall of this West Meade home, designer Natalie Hager tapped Central Woodwork to fashion bespoke board-and-batten paneling. “We wanted to create subtle texture on the walls, reminiscent of old New England,” says the designer, who added a touch of glamour using Currey & Company’s Bevilacqua chandelier. The custom iron stair rail is by Arc Works Welding. Here and elsewhere in the home, floors feature cerused French oak from Textures Nashville.


F

ew homeowners would describe the often complex process of ground-up construction as “invigorating and fun,” but Kent Shih, a Nashville oncologist and the owner of a newly built residence in West Meade, loved it. “Compared to what I do every day, which is life and death, building a home became a source of enjoyment,” Kent reveals. When he initially reached out to residential designer Preston Shea, Kent’s design needs were much different from today. But as his family with his wife, Stacey, quickly grew, Shea adjusted just as nimbly to requested revisions—tweaking the plans to comfortably accommodate a teenager and two babies under 2. “Kent and Stacey asked for a striking and updated take on the quintessential English country home,” Shea describes. “We’ve seen the Nashville market shift from very traditional to fairly contemporary in short order, and the Shih’s vision for a home fit seamlessly.” Exterior materials such as cedar shake shingles and copper accents—distinctive architectural elements developed in collaboration with designer Natalie Hager—reinforce this classic ideal while adding overall curb appeal. Shea credits general contractor John Montgomery, who works on West Meade projects often, for his and project manager Ray Kash’s “flawless execution” throughout. Beyond being large enough for their growing brood, the clients hoped for a home that would feel “open, happy and inspirational,” Kent notes. “Stacey and I both work with cancer patients, and one would think that would be sad and depressing, but it’s actually the opposite; I’m always inspired by their courage,” he explains. “I wanted a house philosophically in that same vein, consistent with my day-to-day.” Chimes Stacey: “I didn’t want anything dark, cold or clinical.” For Kent, that translated to vast windows that capitalize on the view. Fortunately, Hager knew how to respond to these with interiors that quelled any potential for coldness. Her task was to scale down the home’s vast proportions, employing linen draperies for texture and acoustical dampening. “It’s a voluminous house with high, vaulted ceilings,” explains the designer, noting how Shea softened the abode’s vast dimensions by way of varied ceiling heights, then grounded rooms with her suggested cedar beams and trusses. “We wanted the interiors to feel cozy and warm.” Hager strove to make the

Shih’s home highly personal, too. “I like to start with a written narrative of who my clients are and how they want to live,” the designer explains. “In a way, I think of my role as interior storyteller.” With Kent’s tastes skewing traditional, Hager was initially keen to retain nods to the modern farmhouse: an appropriate reference considering the neighborhood’s historical status as farmland, as well as Stacey’s agrarian upbringing. But as the project progressed, Stacey pushed for something more contemporary. So, taking stock of Kent’s time spent on the East Coast, Hager presented a concept that beautifully marries the couple’s contrasting aesthetics while melding with Shea’s architectural hallmarks. The result? “A buttoned-up, Cape Codinspired approach,” the designer notes. From there, Hager installed statement light fixtures to balance rooms’ proportions and impart jewelry-like sparkle. With her clients diverging on their preference for color, Hager found another opportunity to split differences equitably: Rich green was relegated to the primary bathroom cabinetry while blue makes a major statement in the kitchen—starting with its “French blue” refrigerator. “I studied in Provence, so that resonated with me,” says Hager, who matched the finish of the lower cabinets to the appliance’s cool hue. “It’s a rich, bold color, but still timeless.” Plus, those subtle Provençal influences interfaced nicely with the Cape Cod-inspired scheme. “It was important that this kitchen feel current today and 20 years from now,” continues Hager, who incorporated Stacey’s penchant for pattern via a playful backsplash tile that offered “the artisanal feel she wanted.” So, too, has the kitchen become a stage for Kent’s own fancies to take flight. “I enjoy cooking, so I love getting in the kitchen on my day off to create some gumbo,” he says. “I grew up in south Louisiana and like to cook Asian or Cajun dishes; sometimes both.” By the same token, finishing touches throughout the residence were selected with the family’s unique background in mind. “The way Natalie decorated was very heartwarming,” Stacey expresses. “The mirror in the dining room was the first antique my grandparents ever bought, and Natalie incorporated it in such a loving and gorgeous way.” And that’s exactly what Hager finds rewarding as a designer: “This home tells their story in a way that feels fresh and modern,” she says. “I thought it was important to celebrate and honor their personal journey.” In this case, it was a journey that culminated in everything they’d hoped.

Since the dining room opens to both the family room and kitchen, Hager opted to insert color and pattern subtly: by wallpapering the ceiling. A hand-blocked Galbraith & Paul design provides the pop homeowner Stacey Shih loved while retaining the understated effect her husband, Kent, desired. Benjamin Moore’s Coventry Gray on walls links the blue-tinted motif above to gray upholstery on a mix of Four Hands and Highland House seating beneath. The empire-style chandeliers are from Circa Lighting.

Above: Since the Shihs love to cook and gather, their kitchen needed space for both activities. After working with residential designer Preston Shea on the room’s work triangle, Hager accented with Spanish-made Peronda tile on the backsplash. A bold blue vent hood from Ferguson perfectly matches the lower perimeter cabinetry, crafted by Opus Luxury Cabinets and painted a custom cobalt color. Selamat counter stools lend a French Provençal feel. Opposite: Essential to gathering is a central island, so Hager opted for a custom, furniture-like piece. Inspired by Stacey’s agrarian upbringing, she channeled the aesthetic of an antique tobacco table. Constructed of hickory wood, it combines components made by Opus Luxury Cabinets and MidSouth Custom Cabinets. A Dash & Albert rug and Visual Comfort & Co. pendants provide finishing touches. The Rohl faucet pairs with a Kohler farmhouse sink, both from Ferguson.

Since the covered patio is located right outside the kitchen, Hager chose to continue the blue-and-white scheme with a mélange of matching pillows and potted greenery to link the space with the surrounding landscape. The driftwood tones of the Ballard Designs swing beds and RH coffee table marry nicely with Farrow and Ball’s Hardwick White paint on the ceiling. In a similar spirit, the exterior cedar shake siding, sourced from Walker Lumber & Supply, was left untreated to age naturally.
