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.”

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

ON THE RISE

HOUSE OF NOMAD

Neighbors and kindred spirits Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst unknowingly crossed paths numerous times (even studying abroad in Florence simultaneously) before finally meeting at a Charlotte showroom, where the North Carolina natives connected immediately over shared loves of travel design. “We always had personal goals to launch our own businesses,” reveals Minkhorst, “and when our worlds collided, it the perfect opportunity to take the plunge together.”

Three months after that fateful 2016 meeting, they o cially formed House of Nomad, a design firm known for incorporating multinational influences. Minkhorst’s marketing and advertising prowess provided a boost to Lentini’s art and business background, helping duo’s endeavor blossom to include retail stores as well as product design. The pair’s projects routinely feature items collected while hopscotching across continents, with a recent trip to Panama inspiring their 2022 collaboration with Anthropologie. In the lineup? Framed molas textiles and beaded Emberá masks, plus a sophomore release slated for spring 2023. The simultaneous success of their three-year-old satellite outpost in Charleston (“our second home,” Lentini says) partly inspired a recent relocation within Charlotte. Moving their headquarters to a nearly 3,000-square-foot space in SouthPark has put the designers’ flagship shop and studio under one roof with expanded room to display one-of-a-kind and vintage acquisitions, plus private-label upholstery and textiles, with more of both coming soon. houseofnomaddesign.com

MEET THE MAKER CHAMBERS AUSTELLE

Growing up in Charleston in the 1990s, Chambers Austelle sensed a need to bridge the gap between what she saw as conflicting identities in the South: strong, spirited women who, due to traditional societal roles, were often expected to concede their power to men. Perhaps that’s why the artist’s provoking portraits—often composites of women she’s seen in existing films or photographs—appear to challenge the status quo with their bold gazes and realistic expressions. Rendered on paper or panel in acrylic paint and soft pastels, Austelle’s figures appear on the verge of speaking—er, speaking up. “I studied photography in college, and the dark room taught me how to paint.

It showed me how to look at light and shadow, and that’s how I learned to approach faces,” recounts the artist, who frequently employs digital collage techniques to replicate portions of earlier works—producing patterned environments for her characters to inhabit. Besides taking on tons of commissions, she’s releasing a slew of prints for the holidays and intermittently producing floral studies inspired by the natural world surrounding her downtown abode. “As I become more settled in at my home, I’m much more interested in textiles,” reveals Austelle, who is readying to translate her favorite motifs to fabrics, wallpapers and table linens for 2023. shopchambersaustelle.com

“ESSENCE OF THE TIMES”

FAB COLLAB

LAUREN BRADSHAW DESIGN X SCHEIBE DESIGN

Originally from Orlando, Lauren Bradshaw learned the ropes from her designer mom before earning a business degree, launching a children’s company and cutting her teeth in L.A. Landing in Nashville in 2016, Bradshaw became part of the first wave of designers to usher in a West Coast bent. It was while seeking out special makers in the area that she discovered Scheibe Design, composed of father-son duo Tres and Nate Scheibe. Years in the making, the trio’s first fivepiece capsule collection formally launched this fall. Below, Bradshaw explains how it came to be. laurenbradshawdesign.com; scheibedesign.com

What triggered this collaboration? After so much sourcing for clients without finding what I wanted, then commissioning the Scheibes to create it custom, I thought starting our own line would be a great way to produce pieces that are beautiful, functional, interesting and memorable.

Did you always want to design furniture?

Sculpture is my favorite medium; I love to puzzle over how things fit together in 3D.

I appreciate that Nate and Tres care about materiality and proportions as much as I do.

The aesthetic of these pieces is one of soft modernism, with minimal embellishment. We were going for Swedish Art Deco, chunky and sort of Brutalist, but with feminine curves to soften it. The white oak has a California feel—without trying too hard.

Are additional designs on tap?

We’ll add to the core collection with about two pieces per year. Next on the list is a credenza version of the Hastings cabinet, then a smaller drinks table that incorporates marble, because I love stone so much; I want to do a limited run of five pieces once I find the right specimen.

I also hope to do a jewelry-inspired side table using gemstones.

German-born Horst P. Horst began his career under the tutelage of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius then Le Corbusier before encountering Vogue France photographer George Hoyningen-Huene. Over six decades, Horst’s cinematic style captivated friends ranging from Coco Chanel to Vogue editor Diana Vreeland. As celebrated as contemporaries Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Helmut Newton, Horst’s images were defined by their glamour, sophistication and meticulous preparation, combining classical with surreal for the couturiers and society figures who posed for him, among them Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Yves Saint Laurent and Wallis Simpson. On view through April 16 at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, “Essence of the Times” displays more than 60 Horst photographs spanning fashion, interiors, still lifes and portraiture, including images never before seen. scadfash.org

CHECK IN

1 HOTEL NASHVILLE

1 Hotel Nashville is not simply a spot to stay the night, but a place to kick-start good habits. Newly bowed downtown, the 178-room, 37-suite property goes beyond eco-conscious (a progressive recycling program, biodegradable components, energy-saving thermostats, in-room water filtration systems). Its design incorporates sustainable processes, reclaimed materials and biophilic elements—most evident in an 800-foot, ivy-clad façade. Workshop/APD founding principal Matt Berman’s concept for SH Hotels & Resorts was stirred by the spirit of regional landscapes and their environmental stewardship. “Nashville’s status as a cultural epicenter is undeniable,” he says. “Our team fell in love with its broad, diverse natural beauty and rich history, and wanted to share those experiences with guests.” 1hotels.com/nashville fab collab photo: joseph bradshaw. on view photos: courtesy horst p. horst estate. check in photo: courtesy 1 hotel nashville.

TROY RHONE GARDEN DESIGN

To lauded landscape designer Troy Rhone, entering a garden should be an encounter. That was exactly the idea behind the veteran talent’s eponymous shop, which debuted late last year in the space previously occupied by Pam Evans’ Maison in Mountain Brook Village. Created to showcase Rhone’s point of view for potential clients and passersby, the back portion of the studio is dedicated to his design firm of 25 years. The front quarter, meanwhile, provides a dynamic retail floor for uncommonly elegant garden accoutrements: a 19 th -century trestle table, faux bois seating and stone spheres from France; Italian and English terracotta pots; iron and han d-carved oak mirrors from Belgium. “I have a firm stance; if I would not put something into one of my gardens, it does not go in the shop,” reveals Rhone, who complements these textural wares with original art. Charcoal florals by Oakland artist Emily Farish hung through the summer; a largeformat work by local talent Emily Morgan Brown arrives shortly. troyrhone.com

LIFELYLES

When the pandemic hit, Peyton Lyles dove headfirst into a design career, scooping up an industrial space at Mercantile on Morris in the heart of downtown Birmingham. Lifelyles—a spin on his family surname—opened in February, serving as a springboard for his design services while displaying a mix of muted jewel tones, exposed brick, dried botanicals and patinated antiques he collects on weekend road trips. Newer inventory includes Loloi Rugs and Surya floor coverings, D.V. Kap pillows, chic tomes, and prints by local artist Eric Poland. “We also stock our own private-label pantry goods sourced from a small orchard in North Georgia,” adds Lyles, who merchandises these within custom cabinets. lifelyles.com

THE TRAVEL STUDIO

After a couple years of contracted wanderlust, travel agents Anne Liles and Ragan Stone experienced a surge of requests from their globetrotting clients. That intense interest spurred the duo to open a brick-andmortar studio in Birmingham’s English Village in March. Elegantly appointed by designer Jeremy D.

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

craft traditions of India are at the heart of Tantuvi, a rug company founded by former fashion designer Arati Rao in 2015. The Malachite Rug, shown here, is made by artisans in Rajasthan using reclaimed silk remnants collected from the sari industry. Its geometric step-like pattern is a nod to 400-year-old stone staircases—some of which still stand today—found in Northern India that were built to access water sources. Featuring yarn carefully colored by hand, each design can take up to two months to complete. tantuvistudio.com L U X E S O U R C E C O M MARKET S

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

In designing a dream home, the ability to source unique and beautiful furnishings, lighting, rugs, accessories and art is central to the journey. Enter, BENNETT. The Knoxville-based 40,000-square-foot showroom and design studio brings a wonderful prospect to design pros throughout the Southeast: curated goods from around the world. Although BENNETT does also carry (and celebrate) the work of local, regional and national creatives, it mixes those pieces with finds from purchasing trips in Italy and other iconic locales.

HELLO

NASHVILLE

Asked to discuss BENNETT’s next move, Jeannie says, “Expanding into Nashville is our exciting new venture. A second full-time location offers immense opportunity to bring our unique mix of products to a new market through our retail shop at the Nashville Design Collective.” In addition to its two brick-andmortar Tennessee locations, BENNETT also has a thriving online presence.

OF THE FUTURE

Thinking forward doesn’t always mean cutting-edge new concepts. Sometimes, it involves protecting the legacies one wants to leave.

“We’ve

with a dozen or so small, family-owned makers, each of whom specializes in traditions like layered, painted finishes, inlay and veneer work,” says BENNETT owner Jeannie Bennett. The relentless search for such niche, handmade, small-production offerings has made BENNETT a beloved resource—and an innovator. The brand’s custom line of imported Italian furniture is a High Point Market standout.

“Because of the quality of work we do, we expect the art, craft and furniture we’re placing in our customer’s home to remain with their family for generations. Paintings that show up in the background of family photos today will be present when those pictures are viewed in the grandchildren’s homes years down the road.”

THE BEAUTY OF AGING

Michael shares a look into the aesthetic leanings of the moment. “Some of our clients embrace the philosophy of wabi-sabi, which celebrates the beauty of imperfection and the aging of materials that are worn over time. I personally love the richness of a good patina on metal, reclaimed wooden beams that came from an old structure and marble that is worn and tells a story … like the steps of an old cathedral.”

A LANGUAGE IN STONE

Asked to shed light on some of the firm’s key milestones, Michael points to a favored product. “We are excited about our awardwinning collection that we designed for TileBar. The tiles have dimensional and graphic patterns, which are CNC-carved from marble and limestone. The concept was based on the universal language of barcodes. Our collection transforms these utilitarian lines and spaces into beautiful works of art.”

a field as creative as design, the act of being innovative often lies in one’s ability to stretch outside the box. Just ask Michael Habachy. While earning his degree in interior design, he worked with a custom architectural fabrication studio to bring drawings to life. Today, he does this for trade pros and homeowners alike, alongside his full suite of interior design services, through Habachy Designs + Atelier. “We are not limited to ‘off the shelf’ designs,” he says. “We enjoy creating millwork, interior architectural details and special furnishings for our clients. We feel that luxury should be tailor-made.” Michael also scours the world for unique pieces, connecting with ceramicists in Mexico, wood carvers in Colombia, stone carvers in India and rug weavers in Morocco, Nepal and Afghanistan, ensuring that his clients have a global view into the possibilities of design.

POINT OF VIEW

Contemporary becomes its own kind of classic at a new house on the serene shores of Charleston’s Stono River.

The sun slipping beneath the horizon of Charleston’s Stono River affords a view unlike any other. The languid humidity, lingering nearly the whole year here, filters light like a kaleidoscope, tossing color to and fro. Frame this scene in the arms of majestic, moss-draped oaks, and it’s enough to take your breath away.

Such were the natural gifts of a picturesque Charleston property, where one couple hoped to capture these Lowcountry dreamscapes from every angle. Although the pair had adored a steel-andglass addition at their previous, more traditional home, the Stono River site afforded the opportunity to indulge their midcentury preferences from the ground up. A respected real estate developer in the area, the husband already had collaborated with architects Rush and Judy Dixon on several commercial projects in the past, which made teaming up for a new residence a no-brainer. “This house is all about the view and connection to the water,” reveals Judy, adding that a benefit of embracing a modernist discipline is its inherent minimalism. “From our first meeting, these clients were clear they didn’t want something grand, fussy or ostentatious; rather, a home that would be organic, eclectic and clean,” she continues. “They understand the power of simplicity.”

Joining the project from the outset, landscape architect Steve Dudash had the fortune of consulting heavily on the home’s siting, even directing a 180-degree flip in orientation to best capture the sunset views. To further leverage the river vistas and blur boundaries between inside and out, the Dixons devised a transparent, open living space. Bound by glass on two sides, it’s bookended by the primary suite as well as a two-story tower hosting additional bedrooms and a den. “The main living area easily absorbs all comings and goings when everyone is busy at home, but still feels intimate when it’s just the two of them,” Judy says. “It was essential that every room, every space, feel comfortable on a personal scale, and with a connection to nature.”

In the public spaces, cypress ceilings, soffits and a louvered overhang that filters strong afternoon sunlight all speak to local natural materials. Such details underscore the tireless efforts of builder Jay Godefroy and his team, including

design coordinator Alexandra Frick. “Jay was exceptionally patient and thorough,” reveals Rush, who ensured a nod to classic Charleston vernacular by way of a white stucco façade.

Serenity comes not only from the breathtaking location, but from the simplicity of the interiors, where designer Allison Elebash capitalized on the Dixons’ modernist hallmarks. She anchored the main living area, for example, using a curved sofa with 1970s notes. “Solving the seating configuration in such a large horizontal space was tricky,” admits Elebash, adding that its embracing shape and golden mohair upholstery smartly combine form and function: lush to the touch, but durable enough to stand up to daily life. “I loved the practicality of these clients,” continues Elebash. In every part of the house, “they wanted to avoid anything extraneous; everything is purposeful.”

A custom walnut dining table bridges the area between this gathering space and the kitchen, where a calming palette of earth tones and sky blues is expressed through a dark gray island countertop and azure leather stools—all streamlined, per the clients’ request, so as not to compete with the views. But Elebash pushed back against the husband’s “no maintenance, no upkeep” pragmatism when it came to the kitchen backsplash. “I insisted we go with real marble,” recounts the designer, who specified a book-matched slab of Calacatta Namibia because “nothing beats the drama of natural stone.”

Situating the pool deck to capture the same sight lines as the house, however, required no cajoling. “Everyone agreed on the size, shape and location of the infinity pool, which would be surrounded by a bluestone patio,” Rush recounts. “The owners’ bedroom wraps around it, so again, there’s a connection from their personal space as well as the living room.” Keeping the pool and patio on the same elevation as the house likewise guaranteed the outdoor areas—updated by Dudash with fresh plantings of beautyberry, African iris, Foster holly and more—would be a seamless extension of the interior.

From this vantage point, the homeowners can fully soak up their fulfilled vision: a modern homage to Charleston’s ancient landscape that marries old and new, indoors and out, natural and man-made, with peace and practicality. After all, as the storied river and old oaks know, simplicity is best when nature’s beauty is so abundant.

Natural Alchemy

Channeling science, spirituality and the cosmos, an Atlanta artist explores the universal truth of impermanence.

Aconversation with Georgia artist Caroline Bullock flows seamlessly among a surprising array of topics: from her favored medium— cyanotype—to her fascination with quantum physics. Listening to the Atlanta native talk about wave-particle duality, one might wonder if she ever considered a career in science. Bullock laughs. “I’ve always been interested in what we can’t see. My work is a visual record of my very human attempt to understand the universe.”

Whether watching wildlife or contemplating seasonal change, Bullock draws inspiration from the landscape surrounding her Sandy Springs home and studio. These natural influences organically translate to the cyanotype method, an early form of photography utilizing sunlight to make a contact print. The timeless technique has proved a launch pad for Bullock, who is represented locally at Spalding Nix Fine Art.

The artist’s process begins in her darkened studio, where she coats raw paper with lightsensitive emulsion. Upon carrying it outdoors, she places found plant material atop to create a sun exposure print. After silhouettes of branches and vines emerge, Bullock’s multistep method continues. Sometimes, that means washing and toning the paper to achieve a golden hue before pouring on water and acrylic inks to add gravityassisted layers. Botanical outlines are further delineated using white paint or glitter, conjuring the impression of cosmic dust. Illusory and mysterious, these images invite questions about what is foreground and what is background. As Bullock puts it, “You’re getting both the object and its shadow, but they’re registering as one.”

Though first introduced to cyanotype while earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Georgia State University, it was while coping with the illness and death of her father in 2015 that Bullock rediscovered the classic method. “That’s when the spirituality and questioning started,” she reveals. “At the time I was doing oil paintings on panel with resin, but as I began looking to nature and science for explanations, cyanotype presented a lighter, more immediate approach.”

In 2022, Bullock augmented her body of work in cyanotype with monochromatic renditions. Bullock muses these bold works are the yin to the yang of her more colorful creations.

“Balance is a huge part of what I do,” she says. “And that’s been a great lesson for me: finding harmony among contrary things and making art that—somehow—brings it all together.”

Sum of Its Parts

Southwest of Atlanta, a new home is rooted in heritage, familiarity and treasured collections of Southern decorative arts.

An almost tangible aura of history pervades a newly built residence in Newnan, Georgia, and that’s precisely what the owners—a couple who loves nothing more than opening its glass-paned front door to greet loved ones—had hoped for. Following several years in a more rural part of the Peach State, the duo decided to bid adieu to a large horse farm and embrace a smaller footprint along with the ease of town life.

Building from scratch meant their new home would be defined chiefly by what they brought to it: the jovial spirit of country living along with a museum-quality collection of Southern decorative arts. “They wanted to be surrounded by the things they love,” the couple’s designer, Susan Bozeman, explains. “This house would feel familiar to them, but also fresh.”

Originally inspired by a residence general contractor Henry Cole had already erected in the area, the couple worked with him closely to create a custom home of their own, deferring to residential designer Mitch Ginn to draw up the personalized plans. Cole and Bozeman’s collaborative adaptation pays homage to vernacular architecture—seen in the steeply pitched roof, sash windows, louvered shutters— with equally considered interiors. “It’s a very traditional home, so the size and scale of the details, like columns and trim work, were especially important,” notes Cole, who is quick to credit colleague Tito Castillo, along with local builder David Luckie, for the project’s masterful execution. On the exterior, three varieties of Pennsylvanian stone, cedar shingles and a slate roof lend the façade gravitas; indoors, white oak floors, rough-sawn beams, a fanned-stone fireplace and pierced banisters “give a nice rustic look,” Cole notes. “I like how the shiplap isn’t uniform, and has some random gaps,” he continues. “It adds to the historical feel of the house.”

To layer the soft spaces the owners desired, Bozeman looked no further than the family itself. Cherished objects and antiques—many of them heirlooms from the wife’s mother—set the tone from the entryway, where they receive pride of place. “The Blazing Star quilt, tiger maple Windsor bench and Southern huntboard in the foyer are some of our favorite pieces,” reveals

the wife, who was equally delighted that Bozeman hung her inherited carved eagle over the front door, just as it was in her mother’s home. Farther into the house, exceptional collections of artisanal pottery mingle with 19th-century children’s chairs (now utilized by the homeowners’ grandchildren), antique hooked rugs and avian decoys aplenty. The more you look, the more you see.

An existing red patchwork rug was a nonnegotiable for the living room, where it provided the foundation for Bozeman’s design. “Because it says so much, we kept the upholstery fabrics to solids and textures in oatmeal hues,” the designer comments. Adding a built-in bar to this space was another key component. “It’s a focal point for the room,” she adds, pointing to a horse painting and carved wooden dog plaquettes accenting the feature, which nod to the couple’s love of animals. The designer went with a more subdued palette in the dining room, inserting a tall cabinet from the clients’ former farmhouse as a conversation piece. “Susan understands how to mix things in such a sophisticated way,” shares the wife, whose collections of pewter and ceramics—including Southern face jugs—were tempered by metal light fixtures with a forged look. “Iron talks so well with folk art,” explains the designer, who also collaborated with Cole to disguise the kitchen appliances within decorative millwork.

Considering their clients’ love for entertaining, the design team took care to deliver a screened porch to extend the living area, creating the spot where the couple now begins and ends each day. Bozeman opted to furnish this space with an uncontested Southern classic—wicker furniture— while the couple’s open-air grill pavilion boasts another nostalgic addition: the swing bed.

Gracious outdoor living areas continue toward a distinctly Southern garden. To keep with the property’s period charm, landscape architect Will Goodman fashioned stone terraces and brick-lined beds where landscape designer Keith Robinson planted hedging and seasonal color. Here, in a sunny spot, a dramatic faux bois bench brings in another historical note. “It makes me smile every time I see it,” reveals Bozeman, citing the pleasures of curating a house replete with meaningful objects and stories. All told, “I love when a client appreciates the items they already own,” she notes. “It makes a project that much more rewarding.”

Onward & Upward

Soulful details, authentic materials and meaningful collections give a newly built South Carolina condominium old-world essence.

As life evolves, so—inevitably— do our homes. This was precisely why a pair of empty nesters in South Carolina decided to embark on a new chapter after 35 happy years in a 1920s residence just minutes from their city’s thriving downtown. “When our children grew up and left home, we realized the space wasn’t functional for two people,” the wife shares. “It didn’t have a main suite downstairs, and it was missing many of the features that you start to think about as you get older.”

Because they already loved their neighborhood, the homeowners’ first inclination was to overhaul their existing abode. For this, they looked no further than Kathy Smith, a designer who had already worked with the wife’s family on various design projects for decades. “I love Kathy’s originality, the sophistication of the fabrics and furnishings she chooses, and her way of mixing old with new,” the wife explains, adding: “I also admire her patience and restraint to hold out for the perfect piece; she doesn’t settle for anything less than her creative vision.”

Assessing the couple’s extensive renovation plans—set to include a kitchen makeover and main bedroom addition to the home’s first floor—Smith was confident in recommending residential designer Jeremy Corkern for the project. “He does such stunning, classic, timeless work,” Smith says of Corkern. “And I knew his personality and aesthetic would meld beautifully with these homeowners.”

But fate quickly redirected their course. During the beginning stages of the remodel, the clients learned of a new condominium being developed just down the street from their existing residence. Not only would this new building boast a desirable central penthouse—yet to be spoken for—but because its construction was still in the planning stages, Corkern and Smith were permitted to customize the floor plan and interior architecture for the unit. With that, a major pivot was set.

From there, the couple’s priority became “hiring the right experts and getting the project out of the way,” the husband recalls with a laugh. Irrespective of timelines, “We trusted Kathy and Jeremy to guide us through the process,” the wife says. “We wanted simplicity and functionality for

the long term. Because we were able to stay in the neighborhood we love, we just sat back and let them lead us.”

Joining the project from the beginning allowed Corkern to rework the penthouse layout and structural elements to suit his clients. “They wanted it to feel like a home in the sky,” says Corkern, who tweaked structural columns for symmetry so that “no matter where you look, you have a view outside or to some architectural vantage point.”

Enhancing this aspect are steel doors leading to the terrace, a year-round entertaining space. Corkern also collaborated with local craftsman Greg Mock to install custom millwork: rough-hewn ceiling beams, paneled oak walls and antique oak doors. Despite its newness, “it really feels like an old home,” Corkern notes, adding: “The rooms were set up with hosting in mind—but they’re just as comfortable for the two of them.”

Following suit, Smith composed a scheme of earth tones, natural fibers and curated antiques, allowing the owners’ extensive art collection to take center stage. “These clients wanted simplicity, comfort and ease of living,” Smith says. “They’ve been collecting since they were first married, and they wanted those favorite pieces—versus a ton of color—to provide the most impact. Each work in their collection has a story.” In the entryway, for instance, a commissioned painting by artist Sally King Benedict creates a showstopping first impression. Elsewhere, framed works the wife procured during a trip to Bordeaux, France, bring a sense of poetry to the breakfast nook.

Books were another major component of the design, especially in the dining room, which Smith and Corkern designed to function also as a gathering area and library. “They’re big readers, so the combination was important,” Corkern notes. Due to its dark walls, timbered ceilings and banquette-style seating, the space acts as a cozy, intimate counterpart to the bright openness of the adjoining kitchen.

“It’s a very collected and well-thought-out residence,” Smith shares, pointing to the wealth of texture and patina throughout. “This home is reflective of who they are.” As with their newfound—albeit unplanned—condominium lifestyle, “We didn’t know what we were looking for, but when it was done, we knew it was right for us,” the wife says. “A little glamour and a little grit turned out to be it.”
