MISS“STEPHEN BURKS: SHELTER IN PLACE”

On view through March 5 at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, “Stephen Burks: Shelter in Place” marks the first major survey of the artist’s work in a decade. Distinguished for merging the technical aspects of industrial design with the heart and heritage of handicraft, Burks has enjoyed a decorated career that includes collaborations with Cappellini, Missoni, Dedar (right) and many more. Organized by theme, the exhibition displays more than 50 Burks-authored creations that explore the culturally diverse realm of domestic comforts, including his Traveler armchair for Roche Bobois with a hooded shade. But the pièce de résistance is Broom Thing, a 26-sided, 4-foot-wide polyhedral object— made of broomcorn on a solid oak frame—that elevates a traditional Southern craft with humble origins. Says Burks: “Broom-making has been a tradition in Appalachia for generations; this piece is based on a handicraft that’s been passed down through families.” high.org

Panama-born fiber artist Katrina Sánchez picked up her sewing skills from mother and grandmother, then created something new altogether. “My practice honors everything they’ve done,” reveals Sánchez, who typically employs vibrant acrylic yarns for her captivating works. “I call them soft sculptures,” adds the Charlotte transplant, whose jumbo knitted noodles, stu ed with polyester then woven together en masse, engage multiple senses at a superhuman scale. On the heels of a recent exhibit at The Mint Museum and on the verge of a solo show at Boston’s Abigail Ogilvy Sánchez shares how it all came to be. katrinasanchez.com

COCOON AWAY AT THREE COZY WINTER STAYS ACROSS THE SOUTH.

ANDIAMO LODGE

Found in the tiny town of Mentone in Alabama’s mountainous northeast corner is a one-of-a-kind getaway for relaxation, recreation and creativity. Established with a spirit of adventure, Andiamo Lodge debuted recently from chef Steve Carpenter and Colleen Duffley, a creative director and photographer. The husband-and-wife duo collaborated with designer Holly Shipman to curate the lodge’s spaces, “incorporating the perfect blend of rustic-luxe,” Shipman says. Six well-appointed rooms—each with a fireplace, en suite bathroom and amenities like Peacock Alley linens and Jan Barboglio accessories—join a stand-alone two-bedroom cottage complete with a full kitchen and hammock-slung screened porch. Guests can partake in epicurean cuisine prepared by James Beard Award-winning visiting chefs; active pursuits such as world-class golf, hiking, cycling and hang gliding; figure-drawing classes; and cozy nights under the stars with live music. If just passing through, schedule an appointment to peruse the on-site gallery chock-full of artworks and collected curiosities. andiamolodge.com

SOUTHALL

Twenty miles outside Nashville, seated on 325 bucolic acres overlooking Lake Mishkin, Southall resort revolves around agricultural heritage, farm-to-table fare and sustainable practices. Designed by 906 Studio Architects with Indidesign, the accommodations span 62 guest rooms and suites, plus 16 stand-alone cottages. “The farm influenced every aspect of our decision-making,” reveals Indidesign director Beatrice Girelli, who balanced graphic flourishes with farmhouse rusticity against a backdrop of hand-troweled stucco, reclaimed wood, custom murals and copper bathtubs. southalltn.com

SKYLINE LODGE

Initially designed as a luxurious 1920s mountain retreat, Skyline Lodge has reopened in Highlands, North Carolina, following updates by The Indigo Road Hospitality Group that include an Oak Steakhouse outpost. Nestled within the Nantahala National Forest atop an Appalachian peak, the property was re-envisioned by designer Carrie Dessertine. Her stylish updates include Fabrice Juan chairs by the lounge bar’s roaring fireplace that she says “mimic the architectural details of the building.” Artisanal objects by local makers, custom furnishings fabricated by Hackney Furniture, bespoke Southern Lady bedding and Ann Sacks tile floors outfit the 39 guest rooms and one suite. skyline-lodge.com

OPEN HOUSE

WHAT’S NEW IN NASHVILLE

Schumacher debuted a new 2,500-square-foot showroom in Nashville’s Wedgewood-Houston (above) complete with a hand-painted floral façade by local muralist Maggie Sanger. This latest locale celebrates the physical experience of working with products and clients by providing collaborative worktables and the brand’s inaugural retail boutique. Just one block away at the Nashville Design Collective, Kravet celebrated its first Music City outpost, corralling legacy brands from Donghia to Brunschwig & Fils throughout 4,600 square feet. Look for numerous designer collaborations, including a newly unveiled line with local luminary Sarah Bartholomew and Lee Jofa. Tucked within the Kravet Workspace Nashville is the latest outpost of The Shade Store—displaying more than 1,300 materials including stocked fabrics and designer collaborations ranging from Martyn Lawrence Bullard to Alexa Hampton. A few miles south in the Berry Hill Design District, Ann Sacks made a Music City entrée with its first combination slab gallery and tile showroom (below). Joining its interactive sample shop are tightly curated stone specimens ranging from Ann Sacks’ signature Terrazzo Renata designs to choice selections of marble, porcelain, limestone, granite and natural quartz.

FIRST LOOK INTERNATIONAL

AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM

Opening January 21 in Charleston, the long-awaited International African American Museum offers nine galleries: showcasing permanent and temporary exhibitions spanning archaeological, genealogical, cultural and fine art subjects. Situated on the sacred ground of Gadsden’s Wharf—the disembarkment point for the enslaved through which an estimated 80 percent of Black Americans can trace their ancestry—the modular structure was authored by late architect Henry N. Cobb to exist on this hallowed site without occupying it. Beneath is the free-to-the-public African Ancestors Garden plush with native plants, diverse gathering spaces and provoking installations by revered landscape designer and artist Walter J. Hood. “There’s a spiritual richness in the South,” Hood says. “This site is where people can find their ancestors, but it’s also a place of celebration. Our heritage has allowed us to perceive pain in joy, but also joy in pain.” iaamuseum.org

NOBU

Atlanta’s hotly anticipated Nobu restaurant has arrived at last in the city’s tony Buckhead enclave. Part of a new hotel by the same, it perpetuates design precedents first established by famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa in 1994 but enjoys updates inspired by Atlanta’s arboreal environs. The 272-seat eatery takes its cues from traditional Japanese pavilions with on-site pocket gardens and classical ikebana arrangements. Rockwell Group’s scheme marries Nobu’s iconic scorchedash tabletops with abstract shoji paper chandeliers reminiscent of paper lanterns and a bar of backlit white onyx (“a nod to the translucency of chef Nobu’s fish,” says Rockwell Group partner Greg Keffer) complemented by a 12-foot river rock installation care of local sculptor Kevin Chambers. noburestaurants.com/atlanta

Pillars of Strength

POIGNANT AND POETIC, A NEW FURNITURE LINE HONORS AN IRANIAN DESIGNER’S FAMILIAL ROOTS.

Culture and design have always felt entwined for Iranian-born architect and furniture designer Saba Yazdjerdi. She honed her skills developing cultural venues in her native Tehran, including the award-winning Argo Factory, a century-old defunct brewery reimagined as a contemporary art museum. Now based in San Francisco, Yazdjerdi’s work continues to explore Iran’s heritage through the lens of modern day design. Her recently released furniture line, Pahlevoon Series, inspired by the millennium-old Persian martial art of Pahlevan, reinterprets the sport’s traditional training gear still in use by practitioners today.

Equipment like the mil wooden clubs originally used to strengthen bygone mace-wielding warriors—were a familiar sight at her beloved grandfather’s house. “We were not supposed to touch them,” laughs the designer. “But I would

sneak in with my cousins and try to lift them.” She retained her childhood fascination with the sport that her grandfather helped revive, drawn to its sculptural paraphernalia and chivalric ethos. “Pahlevan means ‘hero’ in Farsi,” she explains. “The title is only given to someone with modesty, strength, respect and selflessness.”

Each piece in the collection subtly underscores these heroic principles. For her Mil-stone bench, the bleached-ash wood mil supports a delicate jewel slab of orange onyx. “Choosing a material that was beautiful and elegant, but also heavy was really important to convey that sense of vigor,” she says. Yazdjerdi also sees her work as a tribute to her grandfather and a way of continuing his legacy. “As a designer, it’s important to reclaim our Iranian identity, and introduce the culture, poetry and thousands of years of history to the world.” sabayazdjerdi.com

Below: Mil-stone, the latest piece created by designer Saba Yazdjerdi for the Pahlevoon Series, symbolizes the strength and spirit of the Iranian community. The bench is composed of bleached-ash wood, orange onyx and bouclé. portrait

WESTERN SENSIBILITY

Third-generation textile maker Kathryn Sanders is revolutionizing digital printing from her Missoula, Montana, studio. “Whatever idea you have about digital printing will vanish when you hold our textiles,” she says. Sanders has reimagined performance fabrics—utilizing water-based, non-toxic inks and techniques requiring less electricity. “If used correctly, digital textile printing can be as powerful a tool as the loom,” adds Chief Creative O cer Leana Becker, who is overseeing a new bespoke program for interior designers. The studio works with artists (especially those from underrepresented communities) and established brands like Philomela to bring unique designs to life. “We have unlimited colors and the ability to change scale at the touch of a button, plus digital printing is the most sustainable way to print textiles today,” Sanders explains. westernsensibility.com

Magali Avezou and François Maugin, founders of French creative studio La Succulente, describe themselves as “curators and engineers,” Avezou says. The duo champions work by emerging artists “researching durability, diversity and migration, and translating it into aesthetic, tangible forms,” she continues.

DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE LUMINARIES HONOR THE LEGACY OF BOUNDARY-BREAKING ICONS RECENTLY LOST. AS TOLD TO MICHELLE BRUNNER

Cathy Kincaid on Robert Kime

Antique fabrics and furnishings bring history and gravitas to a room. No one knew that better than Robert Kime. He was really one of the first designers to incorporate antique textiles into his work and to use an ottoman as a coffee table, which is something we take for granted now because we see it so often. His rooms are relaxed—that’s the key. They are a true English-country look; soft, relaxed, elegant and classic at the same time.

I’ve always admired the drawing room he designed for Swangrove at Badminton Estate. The walls are painted a very

pale gray. There’s a soft floral linen on the drapery and an antique oriental rug with faded warm colors. In photographs, even the cosmos appear at ease—they’re starting to droop just a bit in their vases. It’s so inviting; it makes you want to pull up a chair and Robert truly believed that rooms should be so comfortable, you don’t want to get up and leave.

The first time I met Robert was with John Rosselli at the Decoration & Design Building in New York City. He was a typical charming Englishman. Then at my London book signing in 2019, who shows up but Robert! We had the best time. We visited and chatted about books, and what was new in his shop—the usual things you talk about with a friend.

Storytelling through objects gives a room meaning and history, and Robert was such a gifted storyteller. I think that’s what antique fabrics, furnishings and accessories do to a room—they make it more interesting and also give the space a sense of timelessness.

When I look at Robert’s work, all of the different types of decorators come to mind. Some are like set designers, looking to create a totally new experience with dramatic transformations. Others work with things the client loves to conceive a room that is constantly evolving and changing. Robert was the latter. It’s been said that he always thought of himself as more of a collector than a designer, and I think that’s because deep down he was a curator at heart.

Richard Keith Langham on Carleton Varney

Carleton Varney was a real magician when it came to color; he understood its intensity and lasting power. Whether we want to admit it or not, pattern and color are stimulating. Carleton knew that. It’s what spoke to him, and—through the rooms he created—it’s what is still speaking to us today, in everything from his residential projects to resorts like The Greenbrier and The Colony Palm Beach.

The Greenbrier has such a majestic scale; Carleton really respected the bones of the resort. At the same time, he made it feel intimate through his use of saturated hues and vivid patterns. He once said that he hoped people would someday want hotels to be more than just lodging, that staying at one should be an event.

I think he would be happy to see the direction in which design is moving. There’s a resurgence of traditional motifs, fanciful prints and bold colors. You can even trace his influence to some of the newer talent today. They’re taking risks and stepping out with a little more flamboyance, which takes great confidence and panache, all qualities which Carleton had in spades. For someone like me who’s been in the business for 40 years, witnessing that continuum in design is wonderful. It’s exciting for our whole industry. There’s exuberance and good energy that you can trace back to designers like Carleton. He would have been thrilled knowing he laid the groundwork for that.

Not only was Carleton a man of style, but he was also known for his graciousness. It was that charisma that added to his ability to enliven rooms with such personality. He once said, ‘There’s so much ugliness in the world. If I can inspire people to look at their environment and help them to make it prettier, then I have succeeded.’ I love that sentiment.

In a Palm Beach villa designed by Carleton Varney, a bright rug mimics the waves of the ocean, while the painted mural includes one of the decorator’s favorite motifs: palm trees.

Robert A.M. Stern on James Polshek

When Jim Polshek became dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in 1972, I was already teaching on the faculty. Jim had accomplished a lot as an architect and had a good sense of what the school needed after the student protests of the late ’60s.

When you’re the dean of a school, and good at the job, you should not only be a curator of talent, but also of diverse points of view. Right away, Jim did just that. He had a sense, perhaps coming from his days as a student at Yale, that an architecture school was an important part of a university. He had studied under George Howe, Eugene Nalle, Louis Kahn and Philip Johnson. When Jim arrived at Columbia, with the exception of

Romaldo Giurgola, the school did not have architects of the same high caliber. But he brought in different talents, like Kenneth Frampton and Mary McLeod, and put the school back on the map.

Later, Jim acquired a reputation as a preservation architect. He always said he didn’t believe in preservation architecture because he felt any good architect should be able to build sympathetically onto an older building. He had some interesting ideas, and with the support of James Marston Fitch, who started the preservation program at Columbia, Jim formally added “Preservation” to the school’s name. Before that, it had just been the Graduate School of Architecture and Planning—this helped Columbia become something important, especially in New York City.

Jim’s impact on the profession can be traced to one of his earliest projects: the

Teijin Institute for Biomedical Research in Japan—his first big commission. In those days, the connections between Japan and the United States were very slender. The war was still fresh in everyone’s memory. But Jim went with it and designed this extraordinary series of buildings, meticulously crafted in reinforced concrete. It was quite sophisticated architecture. To this day, it is one of his best buildings.

It can be difficult when you start out so strong, but not for Jim. He made his mark with many memorable projects like the planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History and a tower above 500 Park Avenue, which again, was a good example of a new building marrying itself to an older one. I studied many of his projects carefully, and while I may have taken a different direction, I always learned from them and from him.

Setting the Tone

EXPERT ON ALL THINGS COLOR, AUTHOR

Red is a kiss, a caress, a loving embrace. Red is also a warning and sometimes a welcome. It is a symbol of power and a badge of shame. Red is deeply personal, drawing us into the sensations of our own body as well as toward our attraction to others. It stands for the warmth of the hearth and the scornful flame of vanity. It is beauty. It is violence.

When we “see red,” the flush of anger pushes us to charge like a raging bull and yet bashful blushes are signs of modesty or shyness. On the other hand, the red-blooded among us bravely wade into danger in the name of love, duty and justice. And when those fires burn too hot, red can become a smoldering signal of transgression and decadence, like

A recent study suggesting that athletes wearing red win more often helps explain why, for many centuries, it is the color of kings and captains. Charlemagne even wore red from head to foot to underscore his new authority when crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 800 CE.

Red is also a sign of luxury and until the development of synthetic dyes in the late 19th century, saturated red textiles required great expense and effort, often set aside for the richest members of society. And designers of every era have harnessed its power in dozens of ways to bring the color of human life into the home. Billy Baldwin created a luxurious, immersive garden of

reds for Diana Vreeland’s living room and David Easton deeply infused his adaptation of historical styles with red’s heat.

In a more intimate context, red kindles our passions; think crimson dresses and lipstick. Recent branding for fashion labels like Valentino and Louboutin have used the color to evoke sex and power. In red’s seductive and warming embrace, we revel in its sensuality and potency, and in full doses or as a strategically deployed accent, red awakens the senses and makes us feel alive. cueva de las manos photo: javier etcheverry, alamy stock photo. textile phot o: keith recker. john william godward photo: roy miles fine paintings, bridgeman images. mark rothko photo: national gallery of victoria, melbourne. © 1998 kate rothko prizel & christopher rothko / artists rights society (ars), new york. bridgeman images.

Double Vision

NEW WALLPAPER DEBUTS PROVE THE POWER—AND BRILLIANCE— OF CREATIVE PARTNERSHIPS.

ARTFUL GESTURES

NATALIA MIYAR X FROMENTAL

Tell us about the inspiration behind Ambia. I was commissioned by the Masterpiece London art fair to design a dining room. Knowing my heritage, they asked me to do something with Cuban influence. Soon after, Tim Butcher, Fromental’s co-founder and creative director, approached me and said, “I’d love to do a wallpaper together.” So, I started creating this idea in my mind to have an enormous artwork on the walls inspired by Cuban painter Wifredo Lam’s work. And that is how this abstracted, curvilinear design came to be. It’s not a flat print—it’s got raised elements with buckskin textures and hand-foiling. There’s a rich depth to the colors.

What makes Fromental a unique partner? Their enthusiasm for craft. My mother instilled a desire to not do what everybody else is doing, and Fromental is willing to be adventurous and elevate ideas. Tim even refers to himself as a weaver. There’s a handmade quality to Fromental’s work as if it came from the earth. Plus, there’s something fun about collaborating on a paper that’s different than anything either of us could do on our own.

How is designing a wallpaper and interior similar? It always starts with the brief—a combination of client, geography, architecture, history of place—and the context that I’m working in. From there, it’s about how I express that in the most elevated way that makes sense for everyone. nataliamiyar.com, fromental.co.uk

Interior designer Natalia Miyar conceived the Ambia wallcovering in collaboration with Fromental’s co-founders Tim Butcher and Lizzie Deshayes. The immersive design is available in four colorways and handmade by artisans in the UK.

SHADOW PLAY

What was the process like for this collection? I was beyond excited to collaborate with Calico because we have worked together many times over the years. They have set a high bar for designing wallpaper that evokes a presence beyond materiality—like a grass cloth or silk that just adds texture. When bringing a pattern and story to a room, it’s hard to come up with a concept that feels like the right scale and won’t overpower the space. I didn’t realize how difficult it is to do that well, and I have a newfound respect for those who do.

The designs are largely inspired by light. Did a certain place or time inspire you? I’m really drawn to shadows created in unexpected ways. With Bask, I had

this idea of being outside in the sun and feeling the warmth suffusing you, like being under a pergola. It’s not a specific place as it is a vibe. Then with Sylvan, it was more specific to skiing over the years and loving the view of the landscape, and bare birch trees, from the chairlift. You have the most beautiful shadows playing on the snow’s surface that are so pure.

Where do you envision these wallcoverings being used? I’m always looking for wallcoverings with color schemes, patterning and scale that can work in a myriad of spaces from a bedroom, even if it’s a feature wall, to a powder room where you might want something bolder, overscale and unexpected, to a kid’s room. I try to think of different contexts and settings for wallcoverings. kellybehun.com, calicowallpaper.com

LUXURIOUS

LEATHERS

ILLUMINARE STUDIO X LONDUBH STUDIO

Talk to us about your studio. Brynn Gelbard: Londubh Studio specializes in surface design. My co-founder Lisa Donohoe has been in the decorative arts for a long time, originally working at a high-end New York studio doing work for designers like Ken Fulk and Peter Marino. I worked in independent film production, and we met on a project.

Lisa Donohoe: When we started the company, we wanted to push the envelope and keep experimenting with decorative applications—the potential is truly endless.

Tell us about your friendship and collaboration with Illuminare Studio. Brynn: Yes! Judy Amicangelo of Illuminare Studio has been designing car interiors since the ’80s, working with Mercedes, BMW and Porsche. She swims against the tide and is a real force. She taught us a lot when we launched our first collection of wallpaper, but this new release is all leather which is her specialty. We worked with a 130-yearold factory in upstate New York on the production. Lisa: When we got the first samples back, they took our breath away. Our work is very maximalist, and with these leathers we had an opportunity to explore something new.

And the designs? Lisa: The Greased Lightning pattern feels rock-and-roll, but there is a lot of architectural influence as well. For example, Neowise was inspired by a comet that was photographed over Newgrange, a 5,000-year-old Stone Age monument in my native Ireland. Brynn: Each pattern is created from steel plates engraved with motifs and then embossed onto leather. We started with two designs because they work best with the intricate process and hope to reach a different audience than perhaps our work has thus far. illuminarestudio.com, londubhstudio.com

THE MODERN GODDESS FEATURING THE ODIN¨ BATH COLLECTION

AU NATURAL LISA

Tell us about your background and how it influenced this collection. I grew up in Montana, but I knew there was more out there. I went to school on the East Coast, spent time in Florida, and now I live in New York. I was exposed to natural elements growing up on a ranch, but I didn’t embrace it at the time. Then once I started working as an interior designer in places like Telluride and Jackson Hole, I was able to appreciate the natural environment and the beautiful views of my clients’ homes. I’ve always been one to believe that your interior should reflect your locale.

And then Hartmann & Forbes called to collaborate. What are some of the materials and techniques at play? They’re not just printed designs—they are textural. Hartmann & Forbes’ materials were exactly what I was looking for in my projects. Our collaboration is a natural pairing. Sycamore, for example, is layered with laser-cut cork, sisal, silverpainted paper and metallic embroidery, while Rocks is made with faux suede and stitching that creates a three-dimensional

trompe l’oeil effect. And because the wallcoverings have reflective materials, the light hits it in a way that changes the colors and patterns throughout the day.

While inspired by the outdoors, these designs aren’t limited to country settings, right? This collection allows for a largescale installation of mother nature’s patterns anywhere! We took some of the rusticity out of the materials, which people tend to associate using in mountain regions, and added sophisticated elements like foils and shiny threads. These natural patterns would lend themselves beautifully to a more elegant, refined interior. lkid.com, hartmannforbes.com

ETHEREAL ELEMENT

Porcelain’s materiality is reimagined with Polish-born interior designer-cum-ceramicist Natalia Landowska’s Cashew Cream wall sconce. The fixture is covered in multiple layers of glaze resulting in a delicate flaky texture that gives the piece an organic, earthen quality. At her circa-1900s Brooklyn studio, each thin, shell-like form morphs in the kiln and no two glazes appear the same after firing, ensuring that each design is a unique creation. natalialandowska.com

POWER POSE

Behold the Helena Floor lamp by Brooklyn-based ceramicist Danny Kaplan in collaboration with In Common With. A study in aesthetic purity, the fixture’s seductive form is achieved through coil-building, whereby rings of clay are stacked and then smoothed before firing. The matching shade conceals seven light bulbs, which can be dimmed by turning the brass knob crowning the top. Shown here in Stone, the lamp is available in six colorways and three brass hardware finishes. incommonwith.com

CLASSICAL NOTE

Designer Ryan Korban’s much-anticipated debut collection for RH Contemporary consists of five lighting pieces, including the Garonne Grand sconce. Pictured here against the layered walls of the historical Park Avenue Armory, the stately fixture channels traditional 1930s French silhouettes, while its sleek lines and matte finish echo a modernized, minimalist sensibility.

MIXING TRADITIONS

Old meets new in Barbara Palatin-Doyle’s Charta Alba I table lamp. For the sculpted base, the Studio Palatin founder was inspired by 17th- and 18th-century designs as well as humble brown wrapping paper from an Amazon box. Palatin-Doyle, who splits time between New York City and her native Austria, worked said paper into unique crinkled forms before enlisting Augarten Wien, a 300-year-old porcelain factory, to bring the stunning white shape to life, which is topped with a handmade Japanese Hosho paper shade. lizobrien.com

TACTILE FORMS

The White Fins pendant is handmade by Atlanta maker Dana Castle of Crosland + Emmons. Each piece is composed of white stoneware and threaded through a brass stem that can be adjusted to the desired position, encouraging one to engage with the light like an evolving piece of art. Castle avoids color as not to distract from the raw beauty of her material, and finishes each design in a chalky white glaze that “adds a softness without hiding the evidence of the hands that made it.” croslandandemmons.com

When designer Bradley Odom was tasked with renovating this Atlanta kitchen for a chef and his young family, he played into the European sensibility of the residence, a Spanish Revival built in 1903. “We wanted to stay true to the home’s architecture,” says

Odom, who reworked the space to include a new pantry, more storage and larger w indows that bring in light and take advantage of backyard views. With function top of mind, Odom arranged the long, narrow room with two movable islands—one for prep and one for serving—and a layout that provides easy access to the refrigerator, range, sink and dishwashers. Glass cabinetry replaced a cluttered desk area, providing display space for the homeowners’ collection of Astier de Villatte ceramics, durable bluestone flooring stands up to the wear of family life and a

backsplash of uneven tile lends texture. Meanwhile, a former laundry room was transformed into the new pantry, complete with a hidden door concealed within a wall of cabinetry painted a dramatic shade of aubergine that complements the kitchen’s greenish-gray cabinetry. “The clients were adamant about not wanting a white space and they set the tone, which is sophisticated and moody,” Odom says. Art also played a critical role, with two wooden game plaques-turnedsconces acting as the starting point for the entire scheme. bradleyodom.com

COLOR STORY

Fora Marina del Rey, California, kitchen, the pièce de résistance happens to be an appliance: a beautiful, blue range and coordinating vent hood by L’Atelier Paris Haute Design. The homeowner worked with the company, who specializes in bespoke ranges, cabinetry and fixtures, on the bold selection. “We landed on a custom 95-inch range with a 63-inch vent hood in Brilliant Blue that includes drawers for utensils and spice storage,” explains co-founder and creative director Maria Moraes. In addition to four gas burners, the range features a coup de feu for simmering and slow-cooking, a lava-stone barbecue and two ovens—not to mention stainless-steel countertops extending beyond the appliance for added prep space. According to Moraes, the finish color required much deliberation, and several di erent tones of blue were considered while the rest of the palette, including a brick backsplash and oak cabinetry and flooring, were kept neutral to let the range shine. Recently, the brand’s options became even more diverse: Their spectrum of colors has expanded to include five more shades (including Gossamer Pink, below), all of which is inspired by Parisian style. leatelierparis.com

“ We considered about 10 different shades of blue. The homeowner wanted something bold yet timeless and I love the nal hue we landed on.”

Tale ofTwo Kitchens

WHILE LOCATED IN THE SAME HOUSE, EACH OF THESE COOKING SPACES HAS ITS OWN DISTINCT FLAIR.

The entertaining kitchen in a GordonDunning project is inspired by a cozy English bar. The space is enveloped in Benjamin Moore’s Boreal Forest and illuminated by an RH light fixture (this page and opposite). Meanwhile, in the main kitchen, an antiqued-mirror backsplash and artwork found at a Paris flea market dresses up the area surrounding a Lacanche range. The cabinetry is painted Benjamin Moore’s Gray Mist and Circa Lighting pendants hang above the island (following page).

As part of the renovation of a Tudor-style residence in Atlanta, Lathem Gordon and Cate Dunning of design firm GordonDunning imagined not one, but two kitchens for a couple with a young child. The initial plan was to simply relocate the space—situated near the pool area—to a more central, family-friendly area of the home, but, in the end, the couple decided that having a second kitchen and bar area for entertaining better suited their lifestyle. As such, the

designers reconfigured the layout, added paneling and painted the cabinetry, walls and ceiling a deep green shade. “This cozy English bar moment is an homage to the home’s architecture,” Gordon says. “There’s a den and fireplace nearby, so it feels like the right part of the house to give you a hug before going out into the sunshine.” Meanwhile, the original living area was reworked to seamlessly flow into a new main kitchen. “Because you can see the space

from the living room, we wanted it to be clean and beautiful,” Gordon explains, adding, “the wife is very chic, and the barstools are a nod to her love of French style.” In fact, the client’s main requirement was a Lacanche range from France. Allowing it to take center stage, all other appliances are paneled, including the vent hood and walk-in pantry hidden behind what appears to be cabinet doors, making for an airy, streamlined aesthetic. gordondunning.com

Finer Points

A SALUTE TO THE ARTISANS TURNING DESIGN DREAMS INTO REALITY.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY GRACE BEULEY HUNT

Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s famous dictum, “God is in the details,” is one we happen to agree with at Luxe We could fill a small library with the exquisite custom creations we’ve had the pleasure of publishing over the years. Allow us to start here—by plucking fantastic spaces from our archives and hearing from the craftspeople behind their defining features.

Caroline Lizarraga began her painter’s journey in college, flipping flea market finds for resale. After studying decorative arts, she founded her eponymous Bay Area studio. Here, Lizarraga’s one-of-a-kind art takes the form of classic harlequin-style, painted-and-glazed floors in a San Francisco home designed by Lynn Kloythanomsup of Landed Interiors & Homes. carolinelizarraga.com

ALL IN THE MIX

PATRICIA ARNILLAS, CONTRAPOSTO ART STUDIO

Tricks of the trade: I studied Fine Arts in Lima, Peru, where I was born. Incidentally, my professors were from Italy, Austria and Germany, and I learned 15th -century techniques, such as creating tempera using natural pigments mixed with egg yolk. This training made me resourceful and proved useful when I moved to New York City in the 1980s and discovered decorative painting. Secret sauce: I have become renown among my clients for creating murals on fabric and burlap to which I apply my own concoction of pliable plaster in layers. It strikes the viewer as mildly rustic and organic, yet contemporary. On view: This mural was inspired by the vegetation surrounding a residence in Greenwich, Connecticut, by designer Erik R. Smith and architect Eric J. Smith. The homeowner wanted to bring the forest into her dining room, so I spent time on the property observing, taking photos and drafting the landscape. patriciaarnillas.com

ART OF ILLUSION

Custom fix: Clients often come to me for stencil work. Other times, they want a painted scene on grass-cloth, or maybe they can’t find the perfect color or wallpaper. That’s where I come in! Arts evolution: While painting cabinets for a construction company in Palm Beach, I was exposed to murals, gilding and other decorative techniques. On one project, I remember walking through the living room and seeing artisans painting the walls like an Arabian tent. There were folds in the corners, drapings and tassels—all trompe-l’oeil. I was amazed. That was the moment I decided to step it up. Constant muse: The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami. Each room h as layers of hand-crafted details. My dream project would be working with a team to restore that building. On view: This dining room designed by Caroline Rafferty was a favorite project. The floor’s colors, sheen and tessellated pattern were a stunning design choice. @amelia.rossi.llc

METALWORKS

Mission statement: We are a metal fabricating company specializing in everything from doors and windows to railings, gates, range hoods and specialty items.

Origin story: I went to college for theater design; my studies included set design and metalwork. After graduating, I moved to Atlanta to work in film and started making furniture for friends on the side. My business grew out of a garage 27 years ago into the organization we have now.

On view: This railing is part of a project on Sea Island, Georgia, with Thad Truett and Suzanne Kasler. We worked to develop a design to follow the flowing structure of the compound curving staircase. Road ahead: I’m inspired by my talented employees, who are the future of this craft. I think everyone in design recognizes that artisans are harder to find these days. We have to find ways to inspire young people to continue these traditions. calhounmetalworks.com

AGAINST THE GRAIN

MILLWORK

In-house specialties: Custom doors, windows, moldings, shutters, gates, light posts, stairs, paneling and any other type of architectural millwork. Family affair: My great grandfather started this company in

a small town in Mississippi, but a mass fire destroyed everything. He packed up his family, and what little they had left, onto a horse and wagon, and moved operations to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1918, to start over. We’ve been here honing this craft ever since. Day in the life: We never know what’s coming next, which keeps things exciting. One day we’re making custom wine racks and the next, we’re building 18-foot-tall mahogany shutters. On view: So many amazing wood pieces were fabricated for this project with Phillip Sides, including the living room’s beautiful white oak-paneled walls. marshallmillwork.com

ALL THAT GLITTERS

JOHN OPELLA, MINIUM DECORATIVE ARTS & DESIGN

Sweet spot: Murals incorporating gold, plaster and lacquer on wall surfaces, furniture and glass. Road map: I’ve studied fine art, architecture and interiors over the years. First, while working for artists and later, working at design studios. My craft combines these experiences, from collaborating with designers at the early stages of a project to executing them on-site or in-studio. Inspired by: 20 th -century design, from the Art Deco of Dunand and Catteau to the modern movement of Le Corbusier and Eileen Gray. On view: This home bar mural was commissioned by designer Marie Flanigan for a client who collects tequilas. It is a moody evening l andscape with gilt agave plants. My business has offices in Brooklyn and Portland, but I love getting to work with Marie because she is based in Houston, where I grew up. Plus, it’s fun to see how she transforms spaces in new and interesting ways. miniumdesign.com photos:

TOUCH OF HAND

KIRBY SINCLAIR, SEGRETO FINISHES

Next generation: My mom, Leslie Sinclair, started Segreto Finishes about 30 years ago, so I grew up surrounded by art. When I was in school, I worked on the different teams within our company to learn more about various finish techniques. Before we opened our showrooms, our house was a revolving door of design and experimentation. Top line: We are a decorative arts and architectural finishes company, with a team of design, operations and artistic personnel, who work together to create beautiful surroundings for residential and commercial projects. We install different types of plasters depending on what our clients are looking for aesthetically, and how the plaster will be used. Material love: I’ve become addicted to plaster over the years. I love the organic feeling it provides; even our whitest plasters feel warm and inviting. On view: This image shows a bathroom of black tadelakt plaster, which is an all-natural, water-resistant lime plaster that can hold darker pigments. We loved collaborating with general contractor DJ Palmore and designer Ashton Taylor on this project. Talk about two inspiring people! segretofinishes.com

Known 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.

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

LAUREL POWELL DESIGNS

When architectural expertise and interior design skills are combined, exceptional environments are the result. As the founder and principal at Laurel Powell Designs, Laurel Powell combines these comprehensive strengths with a collaborative spirit to produce homes and spaces that are thoughtfullyconceived, expertly-crafted and rich in artistry and detail. “Acting as both architects and interior designers, we coordinate nearly every aspect of our projects, from initial geotechnical exploration and civil designs down to custom fabric selections and details for pillow fabrication from our seamstress,” Powell says. “Our design process is rooted in collaboration with our curated network of craftspeople who have the talent and know-how to help bring our visions to life.” Known for her unique ability to blend traditional design concepts with innovative ideals, while staying focused on each client’s wants, needs and lifestyle, Powell and her team marry

elegance and functionality in surprising and delightful ways. “While all of our projects are rooted in classical proportions mixed with glimpses of studies and details from global influences, we are most inspired by our clients,” Powell shares.

“We want the home to be a portrait of who our clients are and who they want to be.”

ASK THE EXPERT

What project put you on the map?

One of my first projects was a custom-build home where we acted as both architectural and interior designers. Images from the project were shared across numerous social media platforms which helped us gain momentum in our pursuit to create homes that have a transcendent quality. Today we are incredibly proud to serve clients across the Southeast and around the country.

How has technology influenced your work?

Our team has worked diligently over the past few years to create a unique computerized companion to the traditional construction blueprint. With the integration of digital images, graphics software and BIM (building information modeling) technology into our design process, we are working to transform our architectural deliverables package in ways that excite and inform our clients and partners.

Going for Gusto

A classic Atlanta renovation bursting with color and maximalism holds nothing back for its convivial owners.

LUXESOURCE.COM 140
WRITTEN BY CLAIRE RUHLIN PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEFF HERR Architecture: Brandon Ingram, C. Brandon Ingram Design Interior Design: Mallory Mathison Glenn, Mallory Mathison Inc. Home Builder: Wright Marshall, Revival Construction, Inc. Landscape Architecture: Alec Michaelides, Land Plus Associates Sherwin-Williams’ Basil on the entry door sets the theme for verdant hues throughout this Atlanta home. Above a handwoven Oushak floor covering from Vintage Persian Rugs, a lantern by The Federalist suspends from a ceiling clad in Miles Redd’s Glass Paneling wallpaper for Schumacher.

oised atop more than four forested acres on Atlanta’s northern outskirts, a traditional home caught the eyes of a vibrant young family for several reasons. Besides being close to the two daughters’ school, the lot impressed with its spring-fed pond, picturesque swimming pool and spacious backyard for the children and dogs to play. Originally built in the 1990s, the residence desperately needed renovations, but the owners weren’t deterred.

Having worked with residential designer Brandon Ingram on their previous abode, the couple did not hesitate to bring him aboard. Renovating this new house was “an opportunity for them to let their personalities run wild,” Ingram shares. The clients wanted it all: color, pattern and architectural detail. Thus, the wife jumped at the chance to hire designer Mallory Mathison Glenn, a frequent collaborator of Ingram’s, to reimagine the interiors. “Our goal was to create a house that not only our children’s friends would want to visit, but that their parents would, too,” says the husband, a fan of impromptu entertaining. “We wanted something fun and light for our daughters that could grow along with them, but spaces for the adults to enjoy as well.”

Accommodating scores of guests for casual parties while keeping spaces intimate for daily life would mean a significant overhaul to the floor plan—so Ingram went all in: taking the interior walls down to the studs while reconfiguring room arrangements. “We looked at the house from a structural perspective and figured: If we could start over within the same footprint, what would we do?” Ingram recounts. Working closely with general contractor Wright Marshall to bring those ideas to fruition, the residential designer adds: “Wright is practically an architectural historian; he’s incredibly adept at making wonderful things happen.”

In the project’s most daring move, Ingram and Glenn agreed to drop the living room’s 22-foot-tall, two-story ceiling—paving the way for an expanded primary suite above. “We literally created square footage from air,” Ingram notes. “And that decision made the living room so much cozier.”

Embracing the family’s lively personality, as well as Glenn’s plans for equally ebullient

interiors, Ingram embellished classic detailing by playing with scale and proportion. “I was able to take a language of traditional millwork profiles—casings, baseboards, cornices—and animate them a bit,” notes the residential designer, who also mimicked the dining room’s mirrored wainscotting in the stair balusters. “There’s a dance between buttoned up and playful: Moments of exuberance keep things grounded on one side of the spectrum, but fanciful on the other. That’s the magic of this house.”

The kitchen—originally tucked away near the garage and newly relocated to the heart of the home—features “one of the largest islands I’ve ever done,” says Ingram. For a tongue-in-cheek choice, he added overscale corbels to frame the arched view toward the adjoining morning room (a space created partly by walling off what was once a screened porch) and onward to the pool. Outdoors, he opted to retain the charms of the existing pool house, though his clients added a copper golden retriever weather vane. “The area is such a quiet respite of colors; Mallory and I liked it being a little more mellow,” says Ingram, who also praises landscape architect Alec Michaelides’ complementary efforts. “Alec and his team understand detail and when to be respectful of the architecture.”

Because her clients adore green, Glenn anchored the residence with verdant shades ranging from emerald and teal to peacock and celadon—incorporating pops of pink, coral, rust and crimson for contrast. One of the family’s favorite motifs, the four-leaf clover, appears on everything from the quatrefoil cutouts in the mudroom to hand-painted dining room wallpaper further personalized with vestiges of the owners: from the couple’s initials to the flowers of their respective birth states. Glenn, likewise, created jewel-box moments throughout: from majolica displays in the library-like keeping room to bathrooms that each feature a different boldly patterned wallpaper. “It’s a grounded maximalism,” the designer notes.

Despite the constraints of the transformation, in the idyll of this setting, the design team was able to personalize the home at great lengths. At the same time, they honored that which came before. “What I love most about renovations is that you have the opportunity to be part of an evolution,” Ingram says. “It’s nice to know you’re integral to that ongoing story.”

ALL IN GOOD FUN

Flair and sophistication converge at the tailored South Carolina retreat of a noted attorney and renowned gamer.

L U X E S O U R C E C O M 152
Architecture: Wayne Windham, Wayne Windham Architect, P.A. Interior Design: Laura Page Bischofberger and Emily Walsh, J. Banks Design Group Home Builder: Scott Koenig, Koenig Homes Inset hardwood floor tiles by Mirth Studio and a canvas by Detroit artist Christopher Franchi and Park City, Utah, artist DeVon act as conversation pieces in the entryway. Made Goods’ Dunley sofette is accented by pillows wearing a Seema Krish fabric.

veteran gaming designer voted into the Pinball Hall of Fame in 2004, Joe Kaminkow’s future vacation home was always bound to be playful. True to expectation, the Kiawah Island, South Carolina, getaway he shares with wife Benita Riley Kaminkow, a retired attorney, embraces arcade ambience—right down to a game room tripped out with a billiard table and, of course, plentiful pinball machines.

Guests catch wind of the retreat’s lively nature right from its breezy entryway, where a collaborative canvas by Detroit artist Christopher Franchi and Park City, Utah, artist DeVon—one of numerous artworks Joe commissioned for the residence—sets an upbeat tone with a cartoon likeness of Richie Rich cannonballing into the swimming pool. In the foreground of the piece, a sharp-suited man carries a tray laden with Diet Coke—Benita’s beverage of choice. Nearby, a riff on an iconic Andy Warhol series depicting “killer shrimp soup” serves as a nod to Joe’s favorite restaurant in Marina del Rey, California. To bring in the vibrancy of their primary home in Las Vegas, Joe says: “Works by Nelson De La Nuez, Michael Bryan, LeRoy Neiman, Steve Kaufman and Olivia De Berardinis round out the mix.”

Tapping interior designer Laura Page Bischofberger to follow this pop art thread was a no-brainer, as the clients had already worked with her design firm before. Regular visitors to Kiawah Island, the Kaminkows were vacationing at a local resort appointed by Bischofberger’s colleagues when they learned of a beachfront property for sale. Authored by architect Wayne Windham, the abode boasts traditional coastal hallmarks like high ceilings, shiplap walls and free-flowing spaces. And thanks to the timing of their shoreside purchase, the couple could tweak Windham’s three-story residence to their specialized requests.

“We wanted it to feel like an extension of Charleston, but with a new vocabulary—nothing antiquated or stuffy,” says Bischofberger of her fresh coastal approach with fellow designer Emily Walsh, which capitalized on the beachy palette of ocean blues and sandy hues their clients love. Bischofberger and Walsh’s regional references include entryway floors inlaid with a bright geometric motif—a modern take on the

painted floors often seen in historical homes— and a kitchen featuring terrazzo-style quartz countertops embedded with an amalgam of recycled glass chips and oyster shells, lending a subtle nod to local vernacular.

Utilizing a material inspired by old-fashioned tabby—think shellstone—for the great room fireplace was another selection rooted in sense of place. Centuries ago in the Lowcountry, “They built foundations out of tabbies: essentially cement mixtures combined with oyster shells,” says Bischofberger, who relied upon builder Scott Koenig to execute a host of architectural changes, including revising the floor plan to make room for a workout area, massage room and small office within the primary suite.

Bischofberger and Walsh appointed such spaces with a stated goal of connecting the interiors to the seascape beyond. Finishing touches such as a handwoven rug customized to mimic the sand and ocean tides bring balance to the great room complete with a reclaimed timber ceiling. “Thanks to the architect’s vision, the windows are so well positioned it’s like being on a cruise ship; all you see is water,” adds Bischofberger, who teamed with Walsh to place an oversize, sandtoned sectional large enough for both Benita and Joe to lounge comfortably. Meanwhile, an oak sideboard with a driftwood finish buffers the sofa and breaks up the sea of upholstery while doing double duty as a dining area storage piece.

In this spot, wooden dining chairs with a woven texture mimic the sweetgrass baskets common in the area. For more literal allusions to the coastal surroundings, Joe commissioned an iconic Scabetti glass fish chandelier for the dining area and tapped a friend, Nubia Palacios Mora, to fashion a bespoke sea turtle motif for the new home—an emblem now emblazoning spa towels, floor mats, even the license plates on beach cruisers. The latter are in great demand when any number of the couple’s five children and six grandchildren come to visit—as is the playful bunk room, where a removable slide between the tealcolored beds keeps the good times rolling.

Successfully capturing both spouses, the resulting harmony of high style and whimsy is perfectly suited to a client who built his career on leisurely pastimes.

LASTING IMPRESSIONS

In Nashville, a Puerto Rican-born abstractionist inscribes her past and present through prismatic prints.

Amosaic of life’s journeys makes its way into the oeuvre of Nashville artist Yanira Vissepó, which combines elements of block printing, fiber arts and, more recently, cyanotype. Abstract and enigmatic, Vissepó’s creations allude to fragments of her personal path— including a pivotal move from Puerto Rico to Tennessee as a child.

Early in her practice, the artist gravitated toward block printing on paper and fabric for pragmatic reasons: “I was trying to create from home, and those materials were accessible to me,” she notes. But exploring the medium soon engendered a fascination with pattern making, exhuming childhood memories of seeing Puerto Rico’s ancient Taíno stone petroglyphs. Carving symbols into the rock face, the island’s indigenous forebears “were communicating with a higher power in nature,” the artist explains. In dialogue with this tradition, Vissepó developed a symbology that still anchors her work to this day. From delicate saplings to orbs reminiscent of river stones, these motifs evoke the island’s familiar waterways, wildlife, mountains and sunlight.

Today at her Elephant Gallery studio, Vissepó carves those same shapes into wood or hard linoleum, pressing directly onto paper to create minimalist silhouettes. Alternately, she’ll layer stamped impressions to render abstract landscapes. For her cloth tapestries, she swaps water-based paints for more permanent oil-based inks, brightening her black-linen backdrops using bold gradient hues for highcontrast intensity. These jewel-like emblems are frequently cut out, layered atop cotton or raw Belgian linen, then embroidered by hand onto the final composition for additional dimension.

In 2021, the artist embraced her proverbial blue period with cyanotype tapestries exploring her family legacy. A signature Caribbean Sea blue is achieved via this photographic printing process—the hue materializing once chemically treated fabric or paper is exposed to sunlight.

Nature remains core to the work; Vissepó presents outlines of rocks, leaves and flowers gathered during trips to her homeland alongside family records and photographs. As with the Taíno carvers of centuries afore, Vissepó has discovered something profoundly healing and human by documenting the ephemeral.

“Because flowers die, of course,” the artist says. “But printing gives them another life.”

Creating a bespoke home for herself and her husband in Nashville came down to one designer’s old-school artistry.

esigners produce drawings all the time, but today that more often equates to computer models versus the classic combination of pen and paper. It’s an art form that designer Connie Vernich continues to celebrate. And in the case of her personal Nashville home, hand drawings were critical to bringing her vision to life.

After finding a 1960s residence they loved on a tree-lined street in West Meade, the interior designer and her husband, David Vernich, forged ahead with a full-scale renovation informed by their travels. “We love the warm, light woods and comfortable ease of homes in Napa, California,” explains Vernich, adding that her and David’s deep love for Provence, France, also heavily influenced the design. Add a dose of neoclassicism, some crisp strokes of black, and a few risks not taken with previous projects, and you get the perfect mix.

As the transformation unfolded, Vernich and her husband felt fortunate they had tapped the duo of Daniel Smallbone and Timothy Romero, a builder and general contractor they trusted implicitly, for the redo. David, a real estate investor, had already worked with Smallbone and Romero on numerous projects in the past. So, he and Vernich were confident to defer to their expertise when Romero discovered unsalvageable water damage in the basement joists, and the pivotal decision to raze the structure was made. The Verniches would still have their dream house, but now it would emerge from the foundation up.

Luckily, the couple had already put considerable thought into a floor plan they loved—which easily translated from the renovation to what became de facto new construction. Through a series of meetings with structural engineer and residential designer Richard Chesbro, the empty nesters had thoroughly voiced their respective musts: a ground-floor primary bedroom and two-car garage for David, a two-story home office for Vernich. The pair also hoped to combine two ideas in seeming opposition: a floor plan that would be light-filled and open, yet distinctly divided. Thankfully, the designer provided a forwardthinking solution: placing two entrances to nearly every room on the ground floor. The result?

A free-flowing layout that feels intimate for the couple but just as easily accommodates a crowd.

“This project was a lot of fun, because Connie was already drawing the home’s interiors while we were still working on the plans,” reveals Chesbro, who likens Vernich’s drawings to works of fine art. “She already knew exactly what she wanted for their home—right down to the specific type of door handle.”

Hand drawings, it turns out, helped Vernich identify and refine several sticking points in the design. For the grandly scaled living room, she notes, “I began to draw the tall, rounded cabinets but wasn’t satisfied because they looked too new.” She showed the sketches to her longtime cabinet maker, Tony Leebrick, who recommended distressing the wood with a wire brush then adding a limewash treatment—moves that instantly imbued the room with patina and warmth.

Meanwhile, Vernich’s interior scheme—executed with assistance from designer Abby Sartin—is predominated by fresh green. “I think you should bring what’s outside, inside,” says Vernich, who also dialed up the glamour in a few areas—as with the Sputnik chandelier on the first floor of her office and the sleek brass trim she added to the primary bathroom cabinetry for a modernist spin.

While Vernich was able to convey most ideas easily through pen strokes and color washes, not all of her concepts could be perfectly articulated in two dimensions; a few could only be fully understood in real life. None of her staff, for example, could quite envision how her chosen check-patterned velvet would work on the barrel chairs in the vibrant green dining lounge. “Every response was, ‘I just don’t see it,’ ” Vernich says. In fruition, the fabric is what makes the space. Similarly, the designer’s sketch of the kitchen’s book-matched marble backsplash could never quite capture the drama of the final install.

Chesbro concludes the home’s success is a testament to Vernich’s experience and talent, however the designer herself gets more granular, crediting the sketches themselves for manifesting rooms of such elegance. “Drawing is my favorite part of the design process,” she shares. “There is a special connection that happens when your brain and hand are working together—and that becomes apparent when the two meet on paper.” It’s the case with all of Vernich’s projects, but for her personal home in particular, the results are picture perfect.
