PHOENIX – When I moved to Phoenix last summer, I was bewildered by all the bright green grass I saw smack in the middle of the Sonoran Desert – in residential yards, on golf courses, at community parks. While the temperatures were hitting nearly 120 degrees, these perfect lawns sucked up huge amounts of water delivered by the shussssh-chik-chik-chik of sprinklers before the brutal orange sun rose each summer morning. But I was drawn to the more naturallooking, drought-tolerant yards, the kind of landscaping I saw in Southern California when water rationing forced homeowners several years ago to trade their lawns for chaparral. Instead of big shade trees, there were saguaro cacti and whip-like ocotillo plants stretching their long branches into the cloudless sky. Crushed red rock took the place of Bermuda grass. Golden barrel cactus replaced rose bushes. The newly published “Desert Gardens of Steve Martino” (The Monacelli

Press, 2018) shows us how a celebrated Phoenix landscape architect uses native flora to create such natural outdoor spaces for his clients. With a text written by fellow architect Caren Yglesias and photographs by Steve Gunther, we see how Martino creates what Yglesias characterizes as comfortable outdoor rooms. Terracotta pots, concrete benches and cantilevered stairs add character while hidden light fixtures provide nighttime drama. Playing with geometric shapes, light and shadow, Martino’s work recalls the functionalist influence of the late Mexican architect Luis Barragan. Rectangular slab walls painted in cerulean blue, burnt orange-red, cheery yellow or deep purple provide privacy. Martino combines desert flora with steel, rocks and those colored walls to create quiet spaces where you can reflect alone or gather with others. Tapered concrete paths lead through grounds covered by crushed rock to outdoor fireplaces or water sources such as fountains or a pipe sticking out of a wall.

Splashing water drowns out the roar of a nearby highway, while a wall hides a yard from hikers traversing through an adjacent wildlife area. Arizona’s state tree, the Blue Palo Verde, and Mexican fence-post cactus stand tall and straight like sentries alongside buildings. But there’s no grass in Martino’s projects. “Lawn has its place in a public park, but it’s ridiculous to have it at your home,” Martino said, explaining his landscaping philosophy during a recent telephone interview. “Using grass at your home really is a kind of crime. Lawn mowers are not environmentally friendly.” “And we need to save our water,” the 70-year-old added. “I always like to say, ‘Kill your lawn, save your grandchildren.’” Martino differentiates his projects from traditional desert landscaping, that old-fashioned mix of cacti, green-painted gravel and rusty wagon wheels that he likes to call “gardens of despair.” Instead, Martino builds habitats, with native plants attracting their symbiotic pollinators. In the book, he describes finding a vagabond plant known as a sacred datura in a bed of salvia, and being startled one evening when he saw a huge Hawk Moth suddenly fly away from the big nighttime bloom. Martino’s relationship with the desert goes back to his years as a troubled youth sent to live on a ranch, where he was charged with wrangling horses. He later served in the Marine Corps and studied art at a community college. The landscape architect wrote in a

separate introduction in the book that he found his life’s calling after a college instructor suggested he visit the workshop of Paolo Soleri, an Italian architect known for his ceramic and bronze wind bells. Soleri had been a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright when the American spent his winters at the desert home he dubbed Taliesin West. Martino noted his dislike of Phoenix’s manufactured feel, and the millions of dollars spent to make it look like it’s not in the desert.Here are a few of Martino’s projects featured in the book: Daniels/Falk Garden. At the Tucson property of Susan Daniels and Eugene Falk, Martino designed gardens with terraces and retaining walls over threequarters of an acre in an effort to visually connect the property with the adjacent Coronado National Forest. He situated an infinity edge pool to extend into the desert and lead the eye toward the mountains. A runnel, or narrow channel, was created to spill water into a trough that became a drinking hole for wildlife. City Grocery Garden. Interior designer Georgia Bates bought a rundown grocery store in the heart of Phoenix and transformed it into a live-in compound with garden courtyards. Martino redid the outside areas, and built a pedestrian entry and a freestanding fireplace. He left five palm trees already standing on the site, and added plants such as prickly pear cactus, creosote bush, Texas sage, and mesquite and Palo Verde trees. Casa Blanca Garden. Molly and Jim Larkin called on Martino to improve on a garden outside their nearly 90-year-old adobe home in the Phoenix suburb of Paradise Valley. Martino added more cacti and trees, along with a non-traditional lap pool and a tennis court. On a lark, he also planted his first now-signature prickly pear cactus roof garden.

Storage pieces are not what they used to be. Changes in home design and technology mean that boxy, old-fashioned armoires, dressers and china hutches are being repurposed or are making room for cabinets, shelving and sideboards in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles. Today’s decor embraces an eclectic look, and rooms might serve more than one function. Walk-in closets and wallmounted TVs are hot; formal dining rooms are not. All of these trends mean there’s more freedom in choosing storage pieces, including “wow pieces” that make a statement, said Sarah Winslow, merchandising manager at Terrasi Living & Scandia Home in Kansas City, Missouri. “The furniture police have left the building,” she said. Adam G. Tilley, senior vice president for product and marketing at A.R.T. Furniture in High Point, North Carolina, said his company and others are

offering new takes on cabinetry, including interesting shapes, finishes or embellishments that can work within traditional furniture groupings. The units might house barware, electronics or other household items. A.R.T. offers the “chesser,” for instance, a cross between a chest and dresser. It also has a sofa with a built-in bookcase. “These are fun accent pieces that are orbiting around that center core of a suite of furniture,” Tilley said. Many of the new styles offer a mix of storage and display space, Tilley said. “More and more people desire to spend their money having experiences, and the way they decorate their homes has become a reflection of that,” he said. “They are drawn to furniture that showcases the memories that were made, the knowledge that was acquired, or objects that bring those experiences home.” For example, the popularity of craft liquors and fancy cocktails has increased sales of swanky bar cabinets, said Adam Young, who with his wife, Emily, owns Brass and

Burl, a furniture store in Hackensack, New Jersey, and New York City. They also sell standalone buffets, console cabinets and shelving units, among other items. Customers are drawn to pieces that create interest through metal accents, unusual stains or interesting inlays, and fill them however they see fit – regardless of what the pieces were designed to hold, he said. “I don’t think people care about convention at all anymore,” Young said. “At the end of the day, people need function – some place to store their stuff.” Look for shapes and styles you like and don’t worry about what the piece is supposed to be for, advises Linda Merrill, interior designer at Linda Merrill Decorative Surroundings in Duxbury, Massachusetts. If a buffet works in the hall, use it there. “People have a lot of stuff that they’re trying to figure out how to hide,” she said. Repurposing a piece of furniture or using it in an unexpected spot will add to its “wow” factor, said Dinah Baxter O’Dell

“Perfect imperfection” is a trend in furnishings and decor. “It’s a return to the artisanal and the crafted, with narrative and meaning to objects,” says Caroline Till, co-founder of the London design studio FranklinTill. “Fingerprints of process and technique are part of the aesthetic appeal of the finished item.” Her studio got together last year with trend researchers from across Europe and the United States to see what’s percolating in interior design, fashion and architecture. They displayed their findings at the recent international textile fair Heimtextil in Frankfurt, Germany, and a published compilation is being used by designers as inspiration for new products. “Perfect imperfection” was one of the design directions they identified. One pavilion at the fair featured artisans working on dyeing, weaving and other crafting methods. Barrels of inky blue dye stood next to wooden racks draped with cottons that had been given pattern or left to absorb the color naturally. Till says indigo is a lead player on the artisanal stage. “(It’s) embraced by a wave of contemporary brands and designers as they revisit the craft, celebrating the imperfections and graduated hues,” she says. Indigo pieces can be found in abundance at retailers this season. Arhaus has floor poufs wrapped in indigo-dyed, mud-print-patterned cotton. Indigo and white brushstrokes add an abstract individuality to a classic Norfolk chair from Annie Selke. Houston designer Margaret Naeve is on board with the perfectly imperfect look. “From a messy bed to handmade ceramics and metalwork, I hope to see more people looking for pieces that aren’t necessarily manicured,” she says. “I love curtains that are slightly wrinkled, and vintage African furniture that’s one of a kind, obviously handmade by an artisan. The idea of mixing pieces that aren’t perfect in a polished space excites me,” Naeve says. “There’s nothing more chic than a sophisticated room styled with loose florals and a messy throw, adding a level of approachability to the formality of a carefully designed space.” Perfectly imperfect also reflects a

6 WAYS TO TOTALLY SNOOP THE HOUSE YOU WANT TO BUY Ah, house hunting. It may technically be shopping, but it can feel more like breaking and entering. Even though you know the seller wants you there, does anyone really want you traipsing through their bedroom? Or looking through their closet? Or digging around in their basement? Awwwwkward.

Refin’s Voyager ceramic tile collection was inspired by the aged and rusted metal bridges of Genoa and the architectural elements of Victorian buildings. REFLIN VIA AP

But here’s something that should feel weirder: buying a home without knowing absolutely everything you can about it. The only way to avoid the second awkwardness is to face the first head on. When you’re house hunting, don’t think of poking around in someone else’s home as nosiness. It’s a smart, must-do investigation. Here are six things you should absolutely do when viewing a home — no matter how awkward it feels. 1. Soak in the Bathroom

15th-century Japanese aesthetic: wabi sabi. Loosely translated, it refers to an appreciation of the effects of time, and the humble beauty found in things that are impermanent, old, worn or incomplete. We see it in the charm of rustic recycled wood, wrinkly linens, and vintage pieces with patina. It’s also evident in unpredictable and unique finishes, like reactive or drip glazes, color-washed walls, antiqued pieces and distressed rugs. Anthropologie’s spring tabletop line includes ceramics from Portugal with painterly drip and wash glazes in gentle hues. Feathers inspired a set of rugs by Spanish maker Nanimarquina ; the freeform rugs each have their own slight imperfections from the handmade process, and come in a soft palette of ivory, pale green and stone. Crate & Barrel’s Bringham iron vases meld a simple sculptural shape with an aged-look finish of gray, bronze and silver. Grain-rich teak slabs are connected with black wire to create the Marcel wall art that’s organic and contemporary. A new wall art piece at West Elm is crafted of aluminum, with a textural indigo finish creating a wave pattern. Spring bedding collections includes flax linen and cotton linen covers in calming hues of pool, slate, blush and a gentle gold shade called horseradish. Inspired by an old wing chair stripped of its upholstery, furniture maker Van Thiel & Co.’s collection of deconstructed seating and ottomans at Restoration Hardware exposes the pieces’ walnut wood frames and burlap and cotton base covers.

Homebuyers tend to peer into the bathroom for as long as they’d want a stranger to examine theirs: not long at all. But this isn’t the time to be quick. Josh Myler, a REALTOR® with The Agency in Los Angeles, encourages buyers to take a long, close perusal of the water closet. Flush the toilet to find any backups in the system, and turn on the faucets to check the water pressure. Besides being annoying during showers, low pressure can indicate problems with the plumbing. “Water pressure can really cause headaches down the line if you don’t dig in before you make an offer,” says Myler. But always, always check with your agent first. In some markets, or with some sellers, it’s considered impolite to actually use the toilet. Or, if the owners already have moved, the water may be turned off. And that could be, ummm, awkward. 2. Dig Around in the Closets OK, don’t actually go through the owner’s stuff, but take a close look to assess how much storage space there is, and decide if it’ll meet your needs. “People don’t like to open closets because they think it’s rude, but if you’re buying the house, it’s one of the biggest investments,” says Myler. “You want to make sure there’s enough room for everything you need.” Before you step foot in a single house, take inventory of your current storage space, and know how much you’d like your next home to have. 3. Poke Around the Attic and Basement Don’t just stick your head inside and call it good. Give the basement and attic a thorough investigation. If there are belongings piled against the wall, request they be moved before a second viewing. “I get very nervous when I see a packed basement and stuff against the wall,” says Kyle Alfriend, lead agent of The Alfriend Group in Dublin, Ohio. That’s because hidden walls and ceilings can conceal water damage, including peeling or discolored paint, rotting wooden accents, or a white, chalky substance on the wall, which indicates water intrusion. As for the attic, a quick glance should tell you what you need to know. Are there rat droppings? Molding wood? Or is it generally clean, even if dusty? BYO flashlight for an enlightened examination. 4. Meet the Neighbors Sorry, introverts. There’s no better way to get a read on the neighborhood than by directly asking the actual neighbors. Pop by their home and strike up a chat. It’s a two-fer: Not only might you get valuable information about the area — from the noisy bar on the street behind you to eager babysitters on the block — but paying attention to their attitude speaks volumes about your potential relationship with your maybe-neighbors. Do they seem excited to meet you? Or are they standoffish? “It’s not what they answer, but how they answer that will be very illuminating,” says Myler. 5. Be an Amateur Investigator Anything seem fishy? Take your suspicions to city hall. If there are additions, pull the permits or get help from your buyer’s agent. You certainly don’t want to be responsible for tearing out that beautiful porch because the previous owners didn’t comply with the law. Also, check the certificate of occupancy and any easements — especially if you’re hoping to make any major changes. Both are public record. An easement simply gives someone the right to use property they don’t own. Often that other someone is your local government that needs it for public services, such as water. Myler remembers a friend who purchased a home with the goal of building a pool, only to find out an easement for the sewer line cut directly through the middle of the yard. Another common use is a shared driveway, such as when one homeowner has to pass through another homeowner’s property to reach their home. 6. Ask Questions If your sleuthing finds something concerning, don’t panic. “Many times, there’s stuff that, at first glance, is real scary,” says Alfriend. “Often people will write off a house without digging into it, but there’s usually a perfectly logical, understandable reason, and it’s not a problem.” Say you find a gaping hole in the drywall. It might be a huge red flag — or they might have rambunctious kids they absolutely plan to clean up after. “Boys can wrestle and put a foot through the thing, and it’s 30 minutes before a showing,” Alfriend says. There’s not much the sellers can do at that point. With any problem, your first step is simple: Ask.
