At the end of the day, design is often about problem-solving—so Editorial Director Joanna Saltz recruited five Bay Area designers to share their tips for cracking every code.
Joanna Saltz @josaltz Want to talk? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joanna Saltz: How much of your job as a designer is actually solving clients’ problems? Jay Jeffers: In the beginning, it’s kind of all problem-solving: How do you make a big house feel intimate, or a small house feel big? Or somebody wants to have parties for 200 and dinners for 10—how does that all happen in one space? Catherine Kwong: And then there’s the actual hard work of making that happen. We can say, “I want this to be a serene space,” but does that mean all the toys are going in the cabinet every night? Jay: I like the client to be involved in the process. You can see their lightbulb go off when you, for example,
think up the perfect storage for suitcases in their closet. They’re like, “You can’t believe how much I hated those suitcases being stored there— you just fixed that!” And I’m thinking, Oh, great! Jo: They get to experience your solution every day. Noz Nozawa: So much of what we do is aesthetic, but it’s grounded in how to make someone’s home work for them. Even if we’re dreaming up fabulous couches, there’s a part of me that thinks, OK, we still have to make this
Fornasetti Senza Tempo’s Acquario print for Cole & Son gives a narrow powder room by Finley an expansive feel. Kelly Finley @joystreetdesign
For a client with a puppy, Nozawa used performance fabric and a dreamy— but commercial-grade—wallpaper by Calico, which is easy to wipe down.

extremely practical: They have three kids, two dogs, and three cats. Everything needs to perform. Kelly Finley: I think about the problems we face during the implementation phase. Like, I’ve never done a house where they actually followed my lighting plan—because there’s always a beam somewhere. One of my favorite quotes is from Mike Tyson: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” But I actually find solving those problems really fun and exhilarating—arguing with the contractor about whether or
up against the master suite, we were like, This could be a master bathroom! Jo: Life changing. not they can do something, challenging them when they say they can’t. Jo: OK, so what’s your favorite problem to solve? Catherine: We see this one in San Francisco a lot: The clients have a very outdated old Victorian, and they task us with creating a modern space while still maintaining some of the original character.
Kelly: I love the challenge of renovating an old house, because you’re confined in terms of space. It makes you really think outside the box! Noz: Or finding extra space in a home you’re renovating. One home we worked on had a kitchen with a very awkward nook in it, and the clients were thinking, Could it be a desk? Or a breakfast nook? Finally, because the kitchen came
Noz: Literally! The clients are stoked. Emilie Munroe: As the designer, you’re kind of the spirit guide on a journey of self-discovery for every client. You’re creating solutions for challenges they have yet to even face. Catherine: We’re doing a survey in the beginning that’s like, “Will you eat every meal in the dining room, or are you going to sit at the counter every day?” Just tell me! Because then we can work around it. Jay: Right. In the end, we’re creating dream homes. That means getting inside their heads and understanding where they’re coming from. Jo: People are basically putting their lives in your hands. Kelly: And their money!
Kwong surveys clients about their habits at the start of every project. If they always eat in the kitchen, counter stools—like the ones in this client’s cool blue kitchen—are in order.

Jay: But it happens all the time in this business: A problem turns into a solution that’s so much better than what it was in the first place.

every corner, but some ﬂoor plans just don’t allow it. Designers’ current go-to ﬁx: steel-andglass partitions. They won’t shrink the room or interrupt visual ﬂow, but they still separate it, so each area can serve distinctly different functions with plenty of sunlight pouring through. You will have to pay to play: “Because everything is custom, they can cost from $100 to $1,000 per square foot,” says Romni Cain of Atelier Domingue. Flip the page to see the endless potential of interior glass.

Divide and Conquer An angular partition highlights the architectural quirks of the space while keeping the kitchen in the kitchen. If French doors take up too much room, opt for sliding ones instead. But look into building codes before you install— most require tempered or laminated safety glass.
THE GLASS These stylish materials have practical benefits.
Enjoy the Benefits Interior glass can “extend an incredible view or add a feeling of spaciousness,” says Anna Warmoth of fabrication workshop Bananas & Hammocks. Greer Hardy of architectural glass studio Bendheim points out that the extra natural light also boosts productivity and saves energy. Definitely worth the investment!
Frame a Space Crosby Studios used interior glass to section off the dining nook in this eat-in kitchen. The transparent archway allows for shared light while striking a balance between classic and modern.
Colorful Plexiglass Using a tinted plexi in place of glass will lower the cost while adding personality. (Just take care not to scratch it!)

Into the Infinite Darkness Most people think white makes rooms feel bigger, but it’s inky hues that visually expand a space. Here are three color families to try. By Emma Bazilian Navy Blues “Using a single dark color helps the walls recede in a small room,” says Kari McIntosh, who especially loves blues in rooms with lots of millwork. For this butler’s pantry, she had an Abnormals Anonymous wallpaper customized to match the cabinet paint.

Scarlet Reds Especially when painted in high gloss—which bounces light around and fools the eye in to believing a room is larger than it is—dark red walls have tons of depth, says Dennis Brackeen. To supercharge this sitting room, he used Fine Paints of Europe’s Hollandac Brilliant 98 finish (a so-shiny-it-looks-wet oil paint).

“For a small room with bright southern exposure, there’s nothing I love more than a bold black,” says Elaine Griffin. “It takes on the flavor of whatever you layer on top.” But steer clear of ultra-flat finishes if you go this route, she advises—otherwise you’ll see every fingerprint.

Small Kitchen, Big Ideas S
The space-saving features in this cozy London kitchen were all inspired by vintage designs. By Jennifer Fernandez
O M E T I M E S , T H E O N LY
way to make a room feel right is to carve it in two. That’s just what Londonbased interior designer Mark Lewis did in this inviting family kitchen, the heart of an 1870 townhouse facing the city’s historic Hampstead Heath park. Inspired by back-of-house kitchens in English country estates and on shows like Downton Abbey, Lewis created an intimate pantry off the main space for a more functional use of the square footage. A wall with glass panes lets sunlight stream into the windowless main room. “It’s a modern style— very practical,” he says, “but it doesn’t feel out of place in a Victorian house.”
To maximize utility, a ﬂuted ceramic sink, modeled after vintage versions, sits atop exposed brick supports and creates a genius nook to hide a step stool. Above it, a drying rack frees up precious counter space. Rather than using drawers that all look alike, Lewis designed a produce holder that recalls apple crates at a farmers’ market (this keeps the refrigerator less cluttered during cooler months). With so much function relegated to the pantry, the main room works for entertaining. An existing ﬁreplace was

expanded to ﬁt a Lacanche range and hood, and custom Shaker-style joinery in a blue waxed ﬁnish gives the room a rustic vibe. Flame-textured granite countertops, inspired by those in old stone houses, are paired with Lewis’s own hand-cast brass hardware, modeled on antique drawer pulls, to tie the look together. “Nothing shouts at you,” he says, noting how the lack of upper cabinetry, a stylistic decision made possible by the pantry’s storage, contributes to the sense of openness.

tical designers, but they have no patience for the charmless luxury of many contemporary builds. “We like to add architectural character,” says Helm. “People may think it’s too fussy—until they see it.” Their trick: Do it in a way that doesn’t sacriﬁce the luxuries of modern living. With a background in interior architecture, Helm delights in uber-precise processes, like
devising custom storage hidden behind millwork. Baun (whose background is in fashion) is her opposite, stylistically speaking. “My house is extremely eclectic and very wild,” says Baun. “Betsy’s is all white!” After eight years running a design ﬁrm together, they have a new venture: Shophouse Home, which brings their discerning touch to spec houses. “They’re small, but they have built-in storage, everything you need,” says Baun. “We call them jewel boxes.”

How to Make a Little Room Feel Big
1. Pick a playful wallcovering. While Baun and Helm usually stick to a neutral palette in the bigger rooms of their homes, a graphic print or bold color in a smaller space, like the powder room above, can add impact that doesn’t overwhelm. 2. Elevate the details. Though they may seem old-school, crisp trim and millwork help define a room and work with any decor style. “Having a really modern piece of art paired with it is such a nice layer,” says Helm.
3. Splurge on storage. “Space-saving is always about where we can add storage,” Baun says. Adds Helm: “We measure every shoe!” Don’t be afraid to give up a few inches to get it right. “You won’t notice 18 inches missing from the room once it’s done,” says Helm, “but there won’t be toys everywhere.”
4. Build in functionality. A no-brainer space-saver? Furniture that’s part of the architecture. Window seats, banquettes, or inset bars, tables, and desks can turn an awkward nook into a bespoke solution.
5. Add windows where needed. Light is as much a design consideration as paint or rugs. Streaming sunlight will make a space feel way more open.
6. Float your furniture. Helm’s simple trick when a room looks cramped: “Pull the furniture away from the wall.” It’ll make the room feel larger—and more thoughtfully arranged.

After architect Ruard Veltman built the family’s dream home, complete with a pool, she and her husband, Darren, felt the surrounding area was missing something. “After the pool, it just ended,” she explains.

all big Carolina Panthers fans). To appeal to Bing’s love of English country style, Veltman conceived an open-air structure that comprised all of the above, topped with a dramatic thatched roof by master thatcher Colin McGhee, who spent six weeks creating it with reeds imported from Turkey. “It’s eye candy; something to be proud of,” Veltman says. “You want to spend time there.” And so the family does: “We’re out here year-round,” Bing says. “We use it for everything.”
Art Made for the Elements Bing and her husband had long eyed the work of artist Anke Schofield, so with plans in place for the poolhouse, Bing commissioned this lacquered piece. “I told her it had to be able to withstand heat, cold, sun, and rain,” she says—and the artist delivered.
Keeping It Cool Though the open-air structure isn’t air-conditioned, slatted walls promote good air flow. “Ruard calls it natural AC,” says Bing. The thatched roof (a golden hue on the inside) helps regulate heat year-round.

JUST AN HOUR’S DRIVE FROM MISTY SAN FRANCISCO, SONOMA COUNTY’S
rolling hills and blistering sunshine make it seem a continent away. Hence the appeal to Southern-born designer Palmer Weiss, who fell in love with the landscape on weekend excursions from the city, purchasing four acres with her husband to build a house. “I wanted it to be calming and quiet, very much about bringing the outdoors in,” she says. Instead of going the typical Tuscan-architecture-in-wine-country route, Weiss envisioned a Caribbean getaway and hired North Carolina–based architect Mark Paullin to bring it to life. But the setting—“no sea, no white sand, or aqua water, just a lot of greenery,” Weiss explains—required a subtler beachy touch. A loggia was originally planned to be open to the elements, but Weiss enclosed it at the last minute to keep out pests. “I wanted it to feel like a pool house,” says the designer, who opted for tile ﬂooring and twin wicker sofas in a fabric inspired by the color of their lawn. “With the doors open, you feel like you’re outside. It’s the best of both worlds.” Elsewhere, lightweight textiles, pale wood accents, and leafy views are the order of the day. The house is also stocked with cards and board games, as Weiss enforces a strict no-cell-phone rule outside of the bedrooms. Guests are quick to locate the chocolatebrown napping nook on lazy afternoons. “I wanted it to be like a cave in the middle of the day,” she says. “When I was a kid in Charleston, after a day at the beach, you’d draw the curtains, crank the window AC, and take a nap.”

“I’m definitely not a minimalist, but as someone who’s surrounded by pattern and color every day, I wanted this to be more calming and quiet,” says Weiss.

Now she calls it the “Sunshine House,” a place that serves as sleeping quarters for friends and family and also a workshop of sorts (full circle!) for herself. “It’s a space to try different things,” she explains, “a chance to do something fun with color.”

5. The oldest spaceshifting trick in the book? Curtains hung high above the windows to make the room feel larger than it is. The dramatic chartreuse color draws the eye up.
7. Milk-glass pendant lights from the 1920s are gorgeous and also take up little space in a small bathroom. “There wasn’t a lot of room to mount sconces,” the designer points out.

12. Painted-rattan screens in the bedroom were “a good solution in a small space, because they help create height,” Schwabenton says. The woven pattern keeps them from weighing down the room. 13. “There are several different yellows,” she says. One shade is in the Pierre Frey wallpaper, another landed on the window trim, and a deeper gold plays out on the headboard. “It’s a basic white box, so I wanted to make it colorful.”
14. Three windows were added to open up the kitchen and replace the sad 1960s aluminum ones from its prior life. Since they face the backyard, no curtains are necessary—plus, the designer notes, “the sun rises on that side!” 15. You’d never know those glossy cabinets came from Ikea. “We upgraded them with unlacquered brass hardware to give them a unique look,” Schwabenton says.
16. A tiny but deliriously fun dining set (featuring highly sought-after rattan chairs by Danny Ho Fong) is allowed because “you’re not going to have a huge sit-down dinner here,” she says. 17. Whitewashed floors keep everything bright. “The flooring throughout is plywood milled to 12inch planks to resemble a historic wide-plank floor,” the designer says. “It’s not a typical treatment, but I wanted to do something creative, and I didn’t have a huge budget.”

THE WORDS SUMMER HOME CONJURE SUN-SOAKED DAYS
and beach breezes—basically an indoor-outdoor disconnect from the world. Before the design and architectural ﬁrm Kureck Jones got to work on this Martha’s Vineyard house, built in the early 2000s, it was the opposite of a breezy vacation home. “It was a dated warren of rooms, really dark and internal,” says John Kureck. As renters, the clients had loved the house for its rightnear-the-water location, and they considered starting fresh by building instead of renovating. However, that would have taken an eternity: New construction is often a threeyear process in these parts, not to mention the two-year permit wait to put in a swimming pool. So Kureck Jones worked with Holmes Hole Builders to gut the property and
“completely open it up” for an airier, beachy feeling. Because the family had worked with Kureck Jones before, they gave the ﬁrm carte blanche, only visiting twice during the process. Kureck and his partner, Doug Jones, dug in, not for a simple nip and tuck but full-on reconstructive surgery. “We stripped it to the absolute,” says Jones. “We started from scratch.” The ultimate goal: Make the house brighter, more familyfriendly, and better focused on the panoramic ocean views beyond. So they moved the kitchen (it now opens out to the pool), added a screened porch, and replaced all 40 of the home’s small, old windows. Most of the main level’s walls were then paneled in natural ash wood, and since many of the contractors they hired were shipbuilders, the ﬁnal effect is that of a boat’s hull. “Even at night, the house has a sort of golden glow to it,” Kureck says. In a place this relaxed, you shouldn’t have to cry over spilled mojitos, especially when you’re likely to loan the place out to friends. Low-maintenance ﬁnishes were in order. Kureck Jones opted for easily swept painted-wood ﬂoors and kitchen counters made of PaperStone, which is fabricated from compressed recycled paper and is essentially immortal. So, too, is the dining table, a Carlo Scarpa design from the 1970s made of solid travertine. The family even ordered an Ice-cold glasses extra set of covers for the B&B Italia sofa can sweat all over the cork top in the living room, so that if a stain of a vintage Paul should befall one cushion, it could be Frankl table, which replaced from the same dye lot. And since is a ginormous de facto coaster. there was little need for a full mudroom to house heavy coats (this being a summer home and all), Kureck Jones installed simple ash hooks and a built-in bench with drawers in the entryway, for stashing cell-phone chargers and sunscreen. Ingeniously, the pair used color to make the house feel brighter. “You can’t paint a room white, and put white furniture in it, and automatically have it read as light,” Kureck explains, pointing out the black-and-white ﬂower artwork in the dining room and the inky ﬁreplace base. “The trick to lightness is actually contrast.”

ROLL OUT A NEW FLOOR Checkerboard linoleum flooring is a durable surface that doesn’t look brand-new. “Before we settled on Swan’s Island, we’d rented another house in Maine that had this incredible red Formica kitchen,” designer Tom Scheerer says of his inspiration for the color palette.
DON’T OVERTHINK THE FURNITURE “It was done very easily, very cheaply. We didn’t take anything too seriously,” Scheerer says of the design. Aside from a custom table and pieces from storage, the furniture is storebought. Ikea sofas and a Pottery Barn rug get an upgrade with colorful pillows.
UNPRETENTIOUS. COMFORTABLE. That’s how admirers of Tom Scheerer—one of the most esteemed interior designers in America—often describe his work. So for his own summer home on Swan’s Island in Maine, a place Scheerer fondly describes as “dead quiet,” the industry vet took adjectives like these to the extreme. “It’s a hedge against our summer life in East Hampton, which is frenetic and hectic and expensive,” says Scheerer of

this fall. Oh, and they furnished the home in just days. It’s an apt backdrop for a place where days are spent “walking, dog-walking, collecting stones,” Scheerer says. “And everyone usually ﬁnds some kind of art project.” These are punctuated, of course, by lobster dinners, and Scheerer’s famous lobster soup the next day. “Everyone is initially kind of shocked that there’s no Wi-Fi or television, but then they realize there are no planes ﬂying overhead, there’s no traffic,” he says. “It’s a different kind of experience, a cooldown from life elsewhere. It’s really just about feeding yourself and getting to bed early.”
BUILD IN A BED FRAME Scheerer’s bedroom resulted from splitting one ocean-facing room into two. The designer has an ingeniously simple alternative to a bed frame: “It’s just a wall-to-wall shelf with a mattress on it,” he explains. Bonus: It leaves space for luggage underneath.

Driving up to the home—a stately 1940 Monterey Colonial with hedges, fountains, columns, white paint, and black shutters—you might get a different impression. But the inside is warm and whimsical, the kind of place you don’t want to leave. 74
Pastel walls are paired with contemporary accents: Low-slung, ﬂaxen sofas beckon from the blush family room. Twice a month, they pull off the slipcovers and toss them in the wash. “I try to enforce a ‘no orange-dusted food’ rule, but the kids get it through,” Dennis says: Cheetos, Jackie explains. Candy wrappers behind the cushions. Kristi Bender, who co-owns the Los Angeles design ﬁrm Cuffhome with her business partner, Wendy Schwartz, has been friends with the Smiths for decades. So when the family decided to renovate their home of 14 years—ditching the dark-wood paneling, knocking down walls to open up spaces, and making the front rooms into places they’d actually want to hang out in (rather than don’t-touch-anything environs)—she got the picture instantly. Jackie kept seeing ﬂourishes she loved in all the properties she was selling and was tempted to introduce notes of each style in her own home. These enthusiasms, unbridled, could have led to a Victorian-ranch-farmhouseglass-cube grab bag. But Bender intervened. She introduced unexpected shapes and bold colors throughout, from Cuffhome’s unique rope-wrapped globe lamp in the dining room to the striking centerpiece of the home, an all-pink family room. At first, Dennis “absolutely hated it—until the painters put it up.” Cast in Farrow & Ball’s Setting Plaster,
the walls change with the light, pearly in some places, warm salmon in others, and light brown in the shadows. “I was so gunning for this,” Jackie says, grinning. Some rooms found a new purpose. “When we ﬁrst designed the home, we thought the living room was supposed to be very formal, very East Coast,” Jackie says. “But none of us ever went into it. We started to think, If we don’t live like this, what’s the point?” Bender reimagined the space as a music room, highlighting the family’s many instruments and mounting a few beloved vinyl record covers. “I can’t get enough of this room,” Jackie says. “If the doors are closed for some reason, like the kids are doing their guitar lessons in there, I’m super-bummed when I walk in the door and I can’t see it all.”

required frequent watering. “When you’re always away, that becomes more stressful than fun,” he explains. So Wallander did what pretty much nobody seems to be doing in this increasingly Brooklyn-bound city: He moved to Manhattan. “I’m always going from the cab to the airport to the rental car, over and over,” says Wallander, “so when I’m in New York, I want it to be as simple as possible.” A 350-square-foot studio in a Frank Gehry–designed skyscraper, one of the tallest residential towers in the world, is a 180 from his former home—and perfect for that reason. Every item in Wallander’s apartment tells a story: A Tibetan singing bowl purchased in Delhi, India, is put to use so frequently for meditation that he travels with it. An Authentic Model sailboat signals his love for boating and long-term traveling: “When I was going sailing for weeks, I never felt like I wanted to see land again.”
NINE MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR,
Björn Wallander is happily at home— on the road. “I probably spend under 50 days a year in my apartment,” admits the jet-setting photographer, whose work has appeared in every major glossy design magazine (including in the pages of House Beautiful). So when his lease on a charming Brooklyn apartment was about to end, the Swedish-born creative took a look around him and realized the place had one serious problem. It was just too big. The prewar architecture demanded constant maintenance, and the garden
“I’ll be late to the airport and see some street vendor and say to the driver, ‘Pull over!’” Wallander recalls. “I’d buy something, and I would know right away where it would go in my apartment.” His collection of treasures, as well as books, has grown so large that it all piles up on the ﬂoor, which gives the space the feeling that it’s humming.

And yet the little sanctuary is also deeply calming. The custom Behr paint blend of milk chocolate and mauve “is quite neutral,” he says. “When I use the monitor, the wall color doesn’t give off color reﬂections.” Also ideal for an inhabitant who spends a lot of time photo editing: The huge windows, blocked by a neighboring wall, let in a soft, ethereal light rather than harsh sunbeams. “A lot of friends have said it’s like a sailboat,” says the world traveler. “There’s always an order.”

“Even in a big house, everyone sits in the kitchen,” says Wallander, who loves to entertain. “We’ll plan to go out to dinner and my friends will ask, ‘Can we just order in and stay here?’ ” Mask: Jawara African Beads, a vendor who often sets up on Houston Street in SoHo, New York City.
