community relations. As we assembled this issue, viewing hundreds of images and selecting which furnishings, textiles and accessories to cover, I considered our remarkable design community, which we are fortunate to report on in the pages of this magazine. The scope of talent, craftsmanship, ideas and influence—from architects and builders, to decorators, manufacturers and showrooms—is pretty astonishing and exceedingly inspiring. We shine a spotlight on these creative forces in the community, and discover what turns them on when it comes to design and lifestyle in our new Insider department. Check it out, and then expand beyond our pages by heading to luxedaily.com where we cover the design community at large.
Read on. Log on. Enjoy!

Clockwise from top left: P.E. Guerin: I toured this foundry and was blown away by the handcrafted workmanship and attention to detail. Schumacher: When I previewed Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s new collection for Schumacher…well, let’s just say my head is still swimming with notions of how I’d decorate with this cut velvet gem. Neil Denari: Architect Neil Denari’s influence reaches sky high, particularly in West Chelsea where his firm’s HL23 condo is firmly planted. Hutton Wilkinson: What’s more impressive: The stellar art direction of Hutton Wilkinson’s latest tome, or the jewelry itself? You decide, because I still can’t!

BY THE BAY Turner Bay Home in Fort Lauderdale offers hard-to-ﬁnd elements needed to complete any interior. It has an amazing tabletop gallery and carries fine lines like Hermès, Moser, Rosenthal, Buccellati, and Puiforcat, as well as a huge lamp selection and a tremendous amount of accessories. I recently purchased a limited collection solid silver tray from Buccellati that is incredibly detailed and conveys the feeling of an estate piece. turnerbay.com 3

MADE IN THE SHADE For a therapeutic afternoon, head to Colee Hammock Park located off Las Olas Boulevard. It’s very quaint, like an oversize estate backyard, and is on an active waterway. There are lots of shaded oak trees and a lush lawn to lie out on. Go late in the afternoon on Saturday when traffic on the New River is brisk and you can watch the boats go by. ci.ftlaud.ﬂ.us/cityparks/colee_hammock

GARDEN VARIETY Don’t miss the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach. The Garden Club of Palm Beach recently renovated the gardens and added a beautiful glass pavilion. It’s a wonderful spot to stroll through. The building itself is small, but designed in the lavish Mediterranean Revival style—old coquina stone and plaster, and the library has an amazing frescoed façade at the entrance. At day’s end, walk along the trail behind the plaza to catch a pink sunset over the lake. fourarts.org 2
HOLIDAY SPIRIT I love the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden in West Palm Beach. Every year in December the venue hosts an amazing event called the Festival of Trees. Some 40 Christmas trees are donated, a theme is selected and local designers go to town decorating the trees. It’s such a magical time. Gorgeous trees, beautiful music, grilled cheese panini, champagne and holiday cheer. ansg.org 3
BEACHSIDE BLISS I love Island Home in Palm Beach, it looks just like its name. They carry brands like Two’s Company, Oly Studio, and, of course, my company, Hamilton Furniture! I go crazy for their accessories, especially these great silver boxes with a large shell on top from Two’s Company. It’s the perfect gift. islandhomepalmbeach.com 4

KISS KISS Café Sapori in West Palm Beach is heavenly. Start with the chopped Panzanella salad, then go for the truffle risotto and finish with a lemon sorbet. The décor is warm and intimate. Co-owner Francesco Blanco is a true Italian gentleman… always offering up big smiles and kisses (on both cheeks, naturally), and you’ll never leave without a, “Ciao Bella!” cafesapori.com

FRENCH ACCENT Pied à Terre at the Cadet Hotel in Miami Beach. I love the spring pea tortellini with lobster and I always let the maître d’, Patrick Calavarese choose the wine for me. Patrick has transformed the public spaces of this historic hotel into a simply chic and unpretentious atmosphere for dining.

PHOTOGRAPHER KEN HAYDEN FOCUSES HIS LENS ON AN ANCIENT SPANISH MONASTERY, RON ARAD CHAIRS AND A PARKING GARAGE THAT EVOKES AN ALIEN SPACECRAFT.
POOLSIDE PLEASURE My backyard pool is the Standard Hotel in Miami Beach. With a membership to the spa I can use the 1970s design-inspired facilities whenever I want and I take advantage regularly. I love having cocktails poolside while taking in the views of the bay. My idea of double tasking! Try the Turkish Hamam Rub and Scrub which gives you skin like a baby’s bottom. standardhotels.com/miami 3
CONCRETE JUNGLE The parking sculpture garage at 1111 Lincoln Road designed by Herzog & de Meuron is my favorite building in South Florida. Its concrete-and-glass, skeletal frame design is completely outside the box. I like to sit and people watch in the newly remodeled public areas of Lincoln Road surrounding the building. I can even see it lit up at night from my kitchen window. Kind of reminds me of an alien spacecraft! 1111lincolnroad.com 4

CHILL PILL When I need to chill out, refocus and get my culture on I go to the Ancient Spanish Monastery at St. Bernard De Clairvaux in North Miami Beach. Best to go during a weekday afternoon and you’ll virtually have the place to yourself! I love the serenity and beauty of the garden setting, and strolling through the empty cloisters one can get lost in its 800-plus years of history. spanishmonastery.com

One thing in particular has remained since Hutton Wilkinson took over the late Tony Duquette's legacy: the jewelry is still fearless, as evidenced in Wilkinson’s new book Tony Duquette/Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry, due out this November. The lavish, unapologetic designs can be seen in all their extravagant glory in the gorgeous pages of Wilkinson’s third book. “Tony always said that the difference between animals and humans is adornment,” says the charismatic designer. “We each have to eat and procreate to survive, but how we choose to clothe ourselves is the true difference. That’s magic.” Magic, indeed. Organized by color and material, Wilkinson’s latest oeuvre showcases the captivating explosion of gems—all one-of-a-kind pieces—that is synonymous with the Tony Duquette brand. “This book was written to inspire individuality and creativity in others,” says Wilkinson. “It’s for anyone who aspires to pretty things.” abramsbooks.com

MUSEUM QUALITY When an artist is revered as one of the most significant painters of his time, there’s only one natural course of action: build a comprehensive museum dedicated to preserving his legacy. On November 18, the Clyfford Still Museum opens in Denver within a cantilevered structure designed by Allied Works Architecture, shedding natural and metaphorical light on an oeuvre that has largely never before been on public display. clyffordstillmuseum.org

Unveiled this past spring, the 53-story Ritz-Carlton, Toronto consists of a hotel, residences, spa and world-class restaurant, all laden with Canadian insignia, including works by local artists and engraved replicas of the country’s symbolic maple leaf. The 23,000-square-foot spa’s co-ed sun room, shown, is awash with natural light and serene hues. ritzcarlton.com

MODERN MARVEL HL23, the new landmark building by acclaimed Los Angeles architect Neil Denari, welcomed its first residents this past summer in Manhattan's reinvigorated West Chelsea neighborhood. The 14-story structure houses 11 full-floor residences—including two duplexes—with sweeping views of the High Line park, thanks to floor-to-ceiling, low-iron windows. The sleek exterior is a perfect fit for the modern, clean interiors by Danish designer Thomas Juul-Hansen. Adding to the narrative of the building, HL23 collaborated with April Magen, of Magen H. Gallery, and Nicholas Kilner, of Sebastian + Barquet, on selecting midcentury modern furnishings to adorn some spaces. hl23.com

SKIN DEEP Maker of sumptuous leather goods, Moore & Giles has introduced a lust-worthy material line by modern-meets-traditional interior designer Kara Mann. From rich French nubuck suede and buttery aniline leather to polished German calfskin, the new collection features three distinct styles—Crave It, Need It, Want It—each with a different inspiration and finish. The new skins have roots in fashion, borrowing inspiration from iconic pieces like the Gucci moto jacket, Hermès Birkin bag and rockerchic leather pants, just like the designer herself, who was recently named to “The Vogue 100,” a group of influential leaders in the industry known for their distinctive taste. mooreandgiles.com

Tony Duquette’s sunburst fixtures cast a twinkling glow on gray hues and silver metallic walls at the recently opened 2,200-square-foot private event space adjacent to Chicago’s Michelin star-rated Sepia. Gary Lee Partners, who designed the restaurant, was tasked with creating a sophisticated complement to the eatery’s sexy-cool interiors. The design team added stylish details, like a vintage 1910 walnut and pewter bar and an oversized antiqued gilded frame mirror that spans the back wall, which add a dramatic milieu to the versatile event space. sepiachicago.com

FOREIGN AFFAIRS It’s the private playground for jet setters—a legendary island where infinity pools proliferate and villa staff are at the ready. Mustique is most definitely a destination where dreams are built (both metaphorically and architecturally). The island’s 74 private villas are diverse in design style: there’s the über-modern Taliesin by Canadian architect Jack Diamond; Manolo Mestre’s Mexican-influenced Sheherezade, and Japanese-styled Shogun by Arne Hasselquist. The Moorishinspired Toucan Hill, shown, took the owner 10 years to complete, from its mosaicked fountains down to its eight-star-motifs throughout. mustique-island.com
CASUAL ELEGANCE Nestled on a residential street, a few blocks off Santa Monica Boulevard, you’ll find the intimate showroom of designer Rachel Horn. Known for her effortless bohemian style, Horn’s Los Angeles shop carries her inspired line of home décor and antiques. Set up in a quaint bungalow, the space is chock-full of hand-carved case goods and intricate furnishings that hold dear spots in the designer’s heart. “My showroom is a wonderful mix of all the things that I love,” says Horn. Case in point, the one-of-a-kind starburst mirror, shown, is from an artisan in the designer’s childhood home of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. rachelhorn.com

Martin Grubman, P.E. Guerin
Luxe sat down with longtime p.e. guerin fixture martin grubman for an intimate look at the history, philosophy and artistry behind the brand, started by master craftsman pierre emmanuel guerin when he left France for new york city in 1857, a cache of tiny chisels and hammers in hand. over 150 years later, p.e. guerin still stands in a four-story building on jane street whose simple façade belies the exquisite custom fixtures and hardware the company creates for clients around the world. the process remains much as it was when guerin himself first established his shop, and a visit to the foundry—the only one in existence in new york city—is akin to a trip back in time.
From historical reproductions to whimsical Flights oF Fancy, Fine decorative hardware Firm p.e. guerin FaithFully creates its handcraFted masterpieces just as its Founder did beFore the turn oF the last century.
HOW DO YOU PRESERVE THE gUERin HERiTAgE? it’s a family business, and always has been. guerin’s great grandnephew, andrew ward, runs the company, and we maintain a staff of about 60. many come to us as apprentices. the process is the same as when guerin was creating his own pieces. we still use his original tools—some are even older than the company—and when one breaks, we repair or recreate it ourselves. it’s not like we can go to the hardware store and replace it. the molds are handmade using patterns from our archive; we have an entire room full of them, stacked in boxes and on shelves from floor to ceiling. there are probably 100,000 different designs.
WAlk US THROUgH THE AcTUAl PROcESS. every piece in the shop is created, start-to-finish, by hand. we cast exclusively in sand—we go through about six tons a year—and each mold can only be used once. an impression is made in the sand using a pattern, or an actual model, and the metal is poured into the sand. that produces a raw casting, which gets hand filed and braised before going to a finish filer who smooths and refines it. after that it goes to a chaser, or chiseler, who uses chisels and hammers to re-delineate the design. the piece is polished and sent back to the chaser for more detail and texture—that’s what gives it its life-like nature—before it’s polished again, plated and patinated.
HOW MUcH cUSTOM WORk iS DOnE? a lot. one time someone came in and said, “i love hippos. can you make me a hippo faucet?” and i said, “sure!” someone else came in and said, “can you make me an elephant doorknob?” it happens all the time and no matter the request, we find a way to do it. every goofy thing you’ve ever heard of, we’ve made it. we collaborate with designers, architects and historians. guerin’s original work can still be seen in the hall of records and the villard houses in new york city, and in many historically significant buildings across the country. more current work can be found in the new york city public library—that was a restoration commission—tom Ford’s store on madison avenue and in museums.
DiScUSS YOUR cOMMiTMEnT TO cRAFT. there’s a character inherent in metal that can only be achieved by hand. you cannot accomplish it through other means. i analogize it this way: a machine-made sweater is perfect and looks just like all the other machine-made sweaters. but a handmade sweater—while not perfect—has a quality that draws you to it. it’s the same with metalwork. a hand-chased fixture possesses detail and personality and breaks up the light in a way that’s incredibly appealing. you just want to touch it. it’s a tactile aspect you get from something created by hand that you just don’t get when it’s made by a machine.

“This armchair is the perfect
Finnish architect Alvar Aalto blended sleek, contemporary lines with tongue-in-cheek ingenuity when concepting his classic Paimio chair. Deftly pushing the limits of tightly bent birch plywood, Aalto formed a sinuous frame and seat with an appealingly structural personality. Inspired by Marcel Breuer’s iconic Wassily Chair, the Paimio is deliberately crafted using native birch, which underscores its organic form.

and clever idea of this lamp in the form of a candelabra. I could see a pair in a dining room with dark brown grass-cloth walls and perhaps a peek of a fun fabric with a bit of the orange
Designers Michael Partenio and Stacy Kunstel were inspired by an antique candelabra that sent them on a quest to inject old-fashioned romance back into today’s interiors. By modernizing the shape, adjusting the height and adding a lacquer-like finish, their fresh-feeling take allows for a luminous glow to settle over its onlookers. Handmade exclusively in the United States and composed of North American maplewood, the candelabra is available in a variety of hues.

violet UNDeRGRoUND company Eduardo Garza retail $2,400
“Stones add a certain sexiness to any space. I especially love the color purple, and the amethyst is one of the sexiest stones there is. The smooth violet alongside the rugged shape makes for the perfect mix of hard and soft. Garza’s creation would look good in any room.”
Ryan Korban ryankorban.com
For designer Eduardo Garza, there’s more to art than simply fashioning together creative ideas: Only after ethically sourcing and personally selecting all the materials that encompass each one of his pieces does the design process begin. Precious metals, stones and other natural elements of the highest quality are then manipulated into striking objet d’arts, such as this vibrant amethyst accented in white gold leaf and cradled by a gilt base.
“I find this whimsical take on a classical form both intriguing and oddly humorous. It cleverly incorporates fashion into design, and is an ironic statement piece that could be utilized in almost any interior. Accessories provide the finishing touch to a well-designed room, and this figurine is the perfect piece to add personality and interest.” Jeff Andrews

The creative forces behind EDGE Wallcoverings— Phoebe Brandt and Carl Pascuzzi—are framed by unique wallpapers in their Miami studio. Opposite: One of Pascuzzi’s design icons, Anish Kapoor, collaborated with The Royal Parks and the Serpentine Gallery to create an exhibition in Kensington Gardens, which includes C-Curve, shown.

recalls. She presented Pascuzzi with the idea of marketing his computermanipulated images as eco-friendly wallpaper to design-savvy clientele, and EDGE Wallcoverings in Miami was born. The acronym stands for Exceptional Design Goes Everywhere—and, after just two years in business, the duo is off and running. Their wallpapers’ luminous motifs merge everything from flowers and snakeskin to jewels and even people. “Inspiration is everywhere,” Pascuzzi says. And, a growing list of clients are snapping up the coverings to use in venues around the country. Their current projects include eateries in Central Park Miami and a retail arcade for Celebrity Cruises’ Silhouette ship. Up next, the twosome is developing a wall-and-floor tile line, a scarf collection and home textiles. Says Brandt, “It’s morphed into something bigger than we anticipated.” edgewallcoverings.com; 877.271.6787
EDGE OF GLORY
PHOEBE BRANDT & CARL PASCUZZI I became interested in design… PB: During an internship with Betsey Johnson. I love the way she uses color and pattern. After other jobs in fashion, my interest slowly shifted to interior design and architecture.
Design icons: CP: Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Anish Kapoor and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Dream dinner party guests: PB: Diane von Furstenberg, Alec Baldwin, Kelly Wearstler, Colin Powell, Charles Osgood and David Sedaris.
I’m reading… PB: Absurdistan, by Gary Shteyngart and Front Row at the White House: My Life and Times, by Helen Thomas.
Every artist should: CP: Consider what has already been done. Then reinterpret, revamp or revolutionize it.

Miami Beachâ€™s Avant Gallery provides the backdrop for industrial artist, furniture and yacht designer Lukasz Opalinski and his sculptural chair, Indulgence, which was created in collaboration with Oneofone. Opposite: The Design Museum Holon in Israel showcases the work of Ron Arad, one of Opalinskiâ€™s design icons.
“My work is conceived from a part of me that has no limitation or ego,” says industrial artist, furniture and yacht designer Lukasz Opalinski. And with muses like Mother Nature, the universe and the Miami coastline, there’s a world of inspiration to draw from. Focusing on fundamentals like harmony, composition and cause and effect, Opalinski—who originally hails from Kluczbork, Poland—creates fluidity between each of his talents, approaching all with a mixture of balance and unity. Whether he’s collaborating on industrial art,
In conjunction with UK-based Oneofone, Opalinski created Liquidity, a limited-edition stool made from cast aluminum inspired by a photograph of chocolate being poured out of a bowl.
developing furniture or revisiting his childhood passion—yacht design—he adheres to the principles of form and function. “I always wanted to design yachts,” he admits, “but it wasn’t until I moved to Miami that I drew my first boat.” That design showcased a new yachting experience based on the unification of his ideals. Of course for Opalinski, what matters most isn’t the applause, but rather the finale. “I’d like my style to be described as one that touches people’s hearts and drives their emotions.” lukaszopalinski.com; 786.953.4127
Lukasz OpaLinski What’s inspiring you now? My inspiration always refers to nature, but I’m also driven by speed, dynamics, asymmetry, breaking the rules of gravity, the forces of the universe, structural rigidity and visual aggressiveness balanced by elegance and feminine touch.
Design icons: I really appreciate the works and philosophies of a few designers I’ve learned from, like Ron Arad, Ross Lovegrove and Ken Freivokh.
Dream collaboration: I’d love to work with Ferrari/Pininfarina, Sunseeker and Norman Foster.
Favorite decorating sources: The Business Design Center and the Surface Design Show, both in London, and Avant Gallery in Miami Beach.
Trend you’re excited by: Color wise, I’ve noticed indigos and maroons. Both can be successfully applied in detailing decorative elements, and when well distributed, are capable of triggering certain positive, warm emotions.
Picasso or van Gogh? Picasso, because I enjoy the playfulness behind the colors he used, as well as his geometry. luxe interiors

Jewelry collector Tracy Smith doesn’t usually leave the house without at least one fashion accessory. “Growing up, I always loved accessories. I’m even holding a little purse in my kindergarten picture,” says the House of Lavande founder, whose vintage couture designs—from gilded Victorian pocket watches and 1950s Schreiner collar necklaces to 1970s Lanvin pendants—have been spotted on runways and red carpet celebrities. But the
This sculptural bracelet is one of the many vintage treasures found at House of Lavande. Joseff of Hollywood Bracelet, $1,148; houseoflavande.com
Alaskan-born mother of two, who launched her Palm Beach-based business six years ago, is also equally passionate about interior design and hunting for furniture. “We’re building our dream house with Celerie Kemble,” says Smith, who’s also busy these days working on a Lavande Original collection of vintage-inspired, limited-edition pieces and plotting a line of handbags and embellished clutches. “For me, collecting isn’t just buying pieces, churning them out, and selling them. When I run across a special find, I feel something for it.” houseoflavande.com; 561.802.3737
Tracy SmiTh Favorite decorating sources: In Palm Beach, I like Mary Mahoney for beautiful china and crystal, Leta Austin Foster Boutique for luxurious linens, FS Henemader Antiques for shells, and Island Home and Mecox Gardens for fun home accessories.
Design icons: Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten and one of my newest favorites, Andrea Lieberman. I’m also drawn to Kelly Wearstler, Celerie Kemble and Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Company for interior design.
Current obsession: Tumblr.com, a visual networking site with endless, beautiful photographs of design, art, fashion and food. Also, lockets and ladies’ pocket watches worn as necklaces on long chains.
Greatest indulgence: Late night TiVo. I get to catch up on all my favorite shows: True Blood, Gossip Girl, Entourage, Boardwalk Empire and The Vampire Diaries. Almost all of these shows have featured my jewelry as well, so I can consider it research, too!

287 East Indiantown Road, Suite B-9 Jupiter, FL 33477 561.296.6100 firstname.lastname@example.org beresdesigngroup.com For Eve Glass Beres, owner of Beres Design Group, a connection to the elegance and grandeur of architecture and design began at an early age. By the time she was in college, she learned to think of the environment in layers and the personal connection within those layers. as an interior designer, Eve considers interior spaces as canvases for the lives of her clients and she is thrilled to be a part of this collaboration. Drawing on innovation, inspiration and a commitment to excellent design, her goal with each project is to create a space that truly reflects her clients’ vision.

ORGANIC CUISINE In the kItchen, “organIc” doesn’t just have to apply to fruIts and vegetables. WIth Warm Wooden accents and earthy hues, organIc desIgn brIngs a layered, comfortable look to a room that does Its oWn faIr share of lIvIng.
WHOLE GRAINS It’s sometimes easy to get lost in the sleek, minimalist lines of contemporary design; there’s something inherently soothing and appealing about a blank, uninterrupted surface. The drawback, however, is that there’s a very thin line between clean and sterile, and the team at Ornare had to tread it carefully. So, they paired the super modern cabinetry of their new Satyrium series with reclaimed wood on the walls and table and carefully sourced antique light pendants from Brazil to bring a warm, lived-in feel to this contemporary-meets-organic kitchen. “The idea was to give the space a real human element,” says Claudio Faria, director of Ornare Miami. “All of the natural woods make the straight, sharp shapes of the cabinetry more comfortable and homey.” A custom-made range hood and plenty of wine storage courtesy of GE Monogram coolers work to introduce a bit of stainless steel to the otherwise matte finishes used throughout, while illuminated shelves pop against their wooden backdrop for an unexpected touch.
“It’s important that every kitchen be highly personalized, from the layout and the location of the appliances to the accessories that line each drawer.” Claudio Faria, Ornare Miami Miami, FL

CLEAN WASH Nature calls—literally—in this bathroom by Dion McCarthy, Mark Kirkhart and Andrew Alper, of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara-based DesignARC. Pocketing glass doors slide away to create a seamless transition between indoors and out, offering a stunning view of the reservoir in the distance from the cozy contours of the Agape bathtub. “Absolutely every part of the room has a view of and a strong relationship to the outdoors,” says McCarthy. “We let the site dictate the texture and color palette, which brings a nice organic quality to the space.” It’s a quality that is carried through to the knotty wood bench and chair and the interesting metallic-inspired finish of the glazed, porcelain shower tiles by Tau Ceramica from Stone Source. While the bathroom is purposely spare to keep the focus on the unique materials and panoramic vistas, the designer is careful to point out how much the space accomplishes with its less-is-more credo. “It’s not the kind of minimalism you see in a museum,” says McCarthy. “There’s an effortless accessibility to it that speaks unabashedly to and about the human body.”
“I try to include a small piece of nature in all of my designs. It’s crucial to create some kind of refuge, especially in the midst of the din of city living.” Dion McCarthy, DesignARC, Inc. Los Angeles, CA

The proprietary recessed threshold projects only 3/16“ above the finished floor creating, an almost seamless transition from inside to outside. The doors can be designed to meet at a 90° corner, pocket right into the walls and be fully motorized – the design possibilities are vast. Our team is full of experts who are continually developing new concepts and systems that push the boundaries of what is possible.

& windows Arredo ItAlIAno Since introducing his sophisticated, cutting-edge designs from Italy to the United States in 1996, Enrico Cavaciocchi has, in a manner of speaking, blown the doors off of previously held perceptions about his industry. The door is far more than a way to enter and exit a room to the founder of Arredo Italiano—it’s a work of art. “One of my clients once told me, ‘You are a crazy artist,’” Cavaciocchi says. “He said I was ‘bold, avant-garde and a free-thinker.’ I am proud to say that we’re the first company in the U.S. to introduce the concept of a simple door as an important element of decoration.” That concept continues to distinguish Arredo Italiano and its singular line of custom doors—sliding, pocket, bifold, swinging, you name it—in original designs that range from classic to ultra-contemporary. In addition, the design side of the company offers a stunning array of fixtures, cabinetry and lighting primarily for bathrooms and kitchens. The variety, craftsmanship and out-of-the-box conceptualizing at Arredo Italiano leaves clients both satisfied and in awe. “In 2010 we completed a project for a successful group of physicians in Miami,” Cavaciocchi says. “They later told us that their patients are having a completely different experience when they come to their office. One of the patients even came to our showroom to compliment us. That is the ultimate reward.”

builder Couture LifestyLe Homes When the innovative minds behind Couture Lifestyle Homes immerse themselves in a luxury residential project, they bring more than the typical tools of their trade. In addition to 50-plus years of combined building and development experience, founders Todd Ullom and Gary Hartogh bring unparalleled curiosity about their clients— a collaborative approach that has distinguished the firm in South Florida since it opened in 2008. Through its trademarked “Lifestyle Discovery Process,” the Couture team develops a true connection with their customers, creating the context through which they can develop architectural and interior elements consistent with the lifestyle and needs of the homeowners. “As designers, we strive to inspire, entertain and provide value for our clients,” Ullom says. “To do that, we listen to their story. The story of their family and friends. How they entertain and play. How they create memories.” This extraordinary attention to detail doesn’t end there. Couture Lifestyle provides thorough documentation throughout the building process that outlines costs and schedules—and, prior to the start of construction, it commits to a guaranteed price and delivery date. Each energy-efficient project optimizes the use of “green” building materials, contributing to a disciplined, waste-free system that allows Couture Lifestyle to complete a typical 7,500-square-foot home in six months or less. The concierge-level thread also runs through the company’s commercial division, which specializes in high-end medical buildings.

designer InterIors by steven G. After graduating high school and relocating to South Florida from New York, Steven G. found work at a boutique interior design firm—and promptly immersed himself in an industry for which he was born. “I was like a duck to water,” he says. “I love to be creative—it comes naturally.” For the past 27 years, as owner of Interiors by Steven G., he has brought that passion and ingenuity to inspired design work at luxury condominiums and custom single-family estates all over the world. Today, with the help of talented professionals at his Pompano Beach headquarters (the company also has an office in Manhattan), Steven G. and his team—with access to more than 1,400 lines of products—work on anywhere from 50 to 70 projects at a time. Whether delivering design dreams inside the sky units at Trump Hollywood or bringing to life the interior of a 7,000-square-foot oceanfront condo in Palm Beach, Steven G. is constantly challenging himself to set trends, not follow them. “It’s easy to copy, but I consider that lazy,” he says. “That’s not what we are as designers.” On the contrary, Steven G. prides himself on never duplicating one of his self-described clean, comfortable and functional designs. “Even if the client wants the same interior as a model, we make it a bit different so it’s designed specifically for them.”

designer nieto design group, inc. Since opening his Miami-based design firm 20 years ago, Edward Nieto has been coloring the interior worlds of his sophisticated clientele with a palette that, from the beginning, set him apart. “In the early 1990s, everybody was doing beige—but I was doing color with different textures and materials,” says the founder of Nieto Design Group. “Having traveled so much, I found materials and designs that had not reached the U.S., so it was cutting-edge here. I developed my following with people willing to be adventurous.” To this day, that adventure doesn’t end for clients until Nieto—recognized by the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum as one of the top 20 furniture designers in the United States—adds a signature item to a project. “I still design one furniture piece for each client,” he says. “Something just for them.” The desire of every person at Nieto Design, to deliver more than expected for clients, including Academy Award-winning actors and professional athletes, is just one of the elements that distinguishes this award-winning firm, known worldwide for its out-of-the-box aesthetic. “I work very well with people who demand my attention—because I understand what they expect,” Nieto says. “I live my life that way as well. So if a client asks me something out of left field, I have an answer. I don’t believe in problems; I believe in solutions.”

designer poggi design As a college student in South America, Juan Poggi knew that his career path would fall outside the law. “My father wanted a lawyer in the family, but it wasn’t going to happen,” Poggi says. “I remember drawing interiors during my criminology classes.” These days, the owner of Poggi Design continues to win in the court of public opinion with an interior aesthetic and personal style that delights clients in South Florida and in Europe. Since opening his firm in 2006, Poggi has earned consistent buzz for the soft contemporary design that he jokingly calls “fat-free” because it’s “clean and lean—I don’t over-decorate a space.” He does, however, bring an intense passion for architecture—as well as artistic talents as a furniture designer—to each project. “I’m not a decorator; I’m a designer,” says Poggi, who works with primarily high-end clientele. “That’s an important distinction. I do all the lighting, I design the flooring and the bathrooms, and then I create special pieces for the client,—I even place the soaps in the bathroom. When I’m finished, there’s nothing left for the client to do except bring their clothes.” Poggi also is a man of his word. If he promises a delivery date, rest assured the house will be finished on time. “That’s important to me,” he says, “especially since I’m fulfilling the client’s dream.”

builder Pool Tech of MiaMi, inc. Frank De Izaguirre admits that it’s not easy to remember the correct spelling of his last name. Even the State of Florida has misspelled it on his business license. But when it comes to quality and creativity in pool design and construction, no South Florida company makes more of a lasting impression than Pool Tech of Miami, the business that De Izaguirre launched back in 1987. For nearly 25 years, De Izaguirre has maintained a boutiquesized design/build firm that focuses its talents on high-end clientele. “If you don’t have quality control in this industry, you’re just another pool company,” De Izaguirre says. Pool Tech is anything but ordinary. De Izaguirre is a member of the Master Pools Guild, a prestigious group of some 100 independent pool craftsmen who share information on everything from water chemistry to advances in equipment. To that end, Pool Tech embraces eco-friendly systems—including perimeter overflow pools with state-of-the-art collector tanks and hydraulics. “It’s almost like commercial pool design in residential pools,” he says. “It can save about $1,000 a year per customer.” Pool Tech further distinguishes itself through the use of natural materials in its design: running coral stone, for example, throughout a pool instead of porcelain tile. “That kind of detail is part of what separates our company,” De Izaguirre says.

vernacular style. The clients liked the idea, and their site offered the perfect proving ground. “The property is so dynamic,” says De Leon. “It doesn’t have a bulkhead or a seawall, it actually has a beach. The thought was to create something that felt like you’re floating in the middle of Biscayne Bay, because you can’t deny the view.” As the property was long versus wide, De Leon, who collaborated on the project with her vice president, Robert John Graboski, took advantage of its proportions by stretching the structure’s footprint length-wise almost to

designed to flow from one to the next on the first floor, while the bedrooms were placed upstairs. De Leon then extended the living space with a two-story cabana structure, which connects to both levels with a covered walkway. The entire house is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows, which afford almost every room sweeping water views, and large overhangs offer protection from the hot Florida sun. Other materials were selected in response to the elements as well. “The house is glass, stucco, stainless steel and ipe,” says general contractor Isidro Jauregui. “Everything we used can withstand the weather with minimal maintenance.” That mantra dictated the home’s greenscape as well, where Ramon Gonzalez of Tropical Way Landscaping placed high-tolerant plantings that also reflected the design team’s overall vision of the home. “I didn’t want the property to look too manicured,” Gonzalez says. “The goal was to achieve a natural, beachy look.”

The design concept was clear, and De Leon worked in tandem with interior designer Beatrice Pila-Gonzalez from the project’s inception to achieve it. “She knew what we were aiming for and what we wanted the house to feel like,” says the architect. “So it feels like a complete thought.” Following her original inspiration, De Leon gave the house a Balinese feel with indooroutdoor spaces, warm Brazilian walnut floors and intricate mahogany ceiling details. These touches also helped guide Pila-Gonzalez’s vision. “There’s definitely a contemporary Balinese undertone in the selections I made,” says Pila-Gonzalez, “but I also wanted the interiors to reflect the proximity to the ocean.” She created a subtle backdrop of soft whites, greens and blues and kept patterns to a minimum. “The story is more about texture than it is about pattern,” explains the designer, who blended modern furnishings with tropical-infused materials throughout. In the living room, low-slung Minotti seats play off sculptural chairs by Palecek. “I wanted furniture that looked beautiful from all sides,” says Pila-Gonzalez.

aqua-hued Romo fabric echoes the water outside the family room. “Even though the architecture is extremely sophisticated, I knew the house needed to be family-friendly,” says the designer, who slipcovered some of the sofas with outdoor Sunbrella textiles for easy care. Between the flowing spaces of the architecture, the streamlined furnishings and lush textures, the house encourages a carefree lifestyle without sacrificing an ounce of sophistication. “They never wanted it to feel untouchable,” says Pila-Gonzalez. “And I think that’s what architecture and design are all about. It’s supposed to be used and enjoyed, and that’s what they do.” L

It’s an artistic act of courage, the designer’s intentions stripped of all things superfluous and laid bare for all to see. Or as acclaimed Miami designer Carola Hinojosa puts it, “When you use very few components, all of them had better be perfect.” Hinojosa should know. The Bolivian-born designer has been conjuring up breathtaking modern environments for her cadre of international clients for nearly 30 years. This apartment perched high in the ocean-view tower above Miami Beach’s historic Bath Club is no exception. “My clients asked for extreme minimalism,” Hinojosa recounts. Those clients, a stylish Mexican couple with two young daughters, told Hinojosa they wanted a no-fuss holiday pied-à-terre where less is absolutely more. “Every single element had to be simple, but powerful at the same time,” Hinojosa explains. No easy task, but the family had chosen the right designer. Handed the freedom of a complete gut job, Hinojosa took full advantage, even going so far as to build out the bathroom to perfectly accommodate the oversized 4-by-12-foot glass tiles she’d chosen for the walls. There isn’t a single partial-cut tile anywhere on these glistening surfaces.

upon reflection “Foyers should always be a surprise,” says Hinojosa, who used Glas Italia’s Uno più Uno lacquered-glass mirrors found at Luminaire, as the elevator entry’s most dramatic note. Concrete walls contrast with smooth white glass tile floors inlaid with strips of Lagos Blue limestone. c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 278
That meticulous attention to detail is pure Hinojosa. Along with her regular collaborators, Bilal Barakat of Studio-1 Architects in New York and general contractors Artigues & Cubero Builders of Miami, she begins every project focused solely on the shell of the home. Furniture? It can wait. Here, Hinojosa decided that the living area (dining room and kitchen included) should be completely open, with four private bedrooms adjacent to the space. “Carola totally changed what was a very typical condo layout,” marvels Sergio Artigues. “You used to walk into the back wall of a powder room. Now, the minute you step in from the private
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 281
elevator lobby you can see the ocean on one end and the city views out the other. You see through the entire building, it’s fantastic!” To achieve that degree of transparency, Hinojosa had to hide the utility pipes that bisected the old apartment. She conceived a brilliant series of rift oak columns of varying widths that act as an opaque screen separating living room from family room while simultaneously concealing the mechanicals. “A typical unit here looks nothing like this,” says Artigues. “This space has such remarkable light, on a sunny day you can sit anywhere and read a book without turning on a lamp.” The sparkling 36-by-36-foot white glass tiles that sheath the floors enhance all the light that bounces around the flat, while expanding the feeling of spaciousness. Hinojosa says they’re a good example of the “honest” materials she likes to work with—glass, concrete, wood—to create a balance between luxury and simplicity.

The sculpture’s crimson hand is kinetic, beckoning a welcome or waving goodbye. Rift oak columns separate living room from family room. c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 282
Those simple, honest materials and the apartment’s subtle gray and white palette also nicely highlight Hinojosa’s carefully curated furnishings. She dotes on each piece like a clucking mother hen. She calls Zanotta’s Maggiolina armchairs by Marco Zanuso in the living room “fifties classics and one of the most comfortable chairs you can sit on.” She loves the jigsaw-like dining table, De Padova’s Campo d’Oro by Paolo Pallucco, “because it’s like a piece of art based on the proportional harmony of the trapezoid, all hinged so you can have it in any form you want.” And the dining room’s astonishing red Jenette Chair, by Fernando and Humberto Campana, is “another classic. You can leave a piece like that to your children and they’d be happy. That’s why it’s in the MoMA.”
pure and simple Hinojosa chose Porroâ€™s Lipla bed and integrated nightstands for the master bedroom. She used Axo Lightâ€™s AX20 lamps as bedside illumination and designed built-in cabinetry to maintain the minimalist vibe. The sculpture above the two black stools is by Pablo Tamayo and was discovered at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery.

Too bad the Bulthaup kitchen can’t be airlifted out and placed on display at the MoMA, too; in its own way, it’s just as classic. With sleek modern lines and an unfathomable ability to visually disappear into the living room, it’s an open kitchen/living area to warm the coolest of Miesian hearts. Even the pros from Artigues & Cubero Builders were overwhelmed by the fantastic end result. Artigues says that on their final walk-through, he couldn’t resist turning to Andrew Guasch, his team’s young, fresh-out-ofcollege project manager and asking, “So, where do you go from here?” L

In fact, according to architect Jorge
L. Hernandez, there was almost an “encouragement of friendly trespassing in terms of each other’s boundaries.” Like a family themselves, Hernandez would weigh in on fabric choices by designer Nikki Baron; Baron would review Hernandez’s floor plans; and even builder Oscar Hidalgo imparted his own training as an architect. Together with landscape team Jorge A. Sanchez and Phil Maddux, the

“Dream Team,” as they called them, to create a spacious yet intimate home that would also be safe and friendly for their little ones. The house sits on a large, wooded lake-facing lot. Borrowing elements from the Mediterranean style as well as from English country houses by Edwin Lutyens, the early 20th-century British architect known for landscape connectedness, Hernandez designed a more contemporary house with the kind of layered interplay with nature typical of classic garden design.
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 291
From the drive, the house unfolds in stages. Beyond several fruit trees, a pergola breaks at the drive and transitions to a deeper area, an auto court with four Canary Island date palms, emphasizing movement past distinct areas toward the front door. The exterior is made of striated layers of black Spanish limestone and Florida coral stone, which Hernandez says is “the native geological substrate. It’s porous, so it catches the light and creates pockets of chiaroscuro.” Lutyens-like touches, such as walking through orchestrated space, can be felt throughout the house. The entry area’s stuccoed living area, for example, is double-height, whereas the dining room features a low-barrel ceiling to create intimacy.

Layout and functionality were especially important factors: “We constructed the house for the family first,” says the husband, who appreciates architecture and minored in art history in college. “We wanted a big kitchen, and rooms where we could relax and play.” Consequently, spaces are laid out “like a string of pearls,” explains Hernandez, so that main rooms have views of the lake. As for the interiors, “The couple wanted it to be streamlined and contemporary,” says Baron. The sophisticated entry has a small seating area dressed in a serene palette of taupes with a splash of red; a billiards room is tucked away off one end. And following the lead of the two-tone exteriors, the flooring here, and in several rooms, is a light limestone with a 30-inch black Spanish limestone border. That width—the same throughout the house—determined by the

depth of the two faux leather-covered chests near the billiards room. â€œThe whole composition of indoors and outdoors works together,â€? says the designer. Baron repeated the dark and light themes in the dining room, too, where a black wrought-iron chandelier hangs over a rich mahogany table and walnut chairs; the walls and upholstery are tones of taupe and the floor is, again, black and white. In the spacious family room, a black Greek key-bordered rug hints at classical architecture while playing off the durably upholstered gray-and-neutral striped armchairs in the plush seating area.

It’s no surprise that these popular spaces offer views of the lake, as well as the pool. Sanchez, president of his firm, surrounded the patio with plantings, including a Podocarpus hedge and Solanum trees. “They give a sense of semi-enclosure, with some openness,” he says, referencing some of the principles of Lutyens’ work. “My wife and I love the feel of the place,” says the husband. “With the oak trees, the lake, and the varied vegetation, the property doesn’t feel like it’s in Florida, but rather like the suburbs and vacation homes of the Northeast, where we’re originally from.” Says Hernandez, “One doesn’t think of Miami as pastoral, but we like to keep certain secrets.” L luxe interiors

located on a curve of the intracoastal waterway in one of palm beach ’ s most sought - after luxury buildings , a condominium was recently transformed into a light , breezy , oceanside sanctuary under the discerning eye of local designer cindy west ray .
Originally a dark and misappropriated space, the condo, which hadn’t been touched since it was first built over 30 years ago, warranted a complete makeover. “Everything was removed, renovated, redesigned and reconfigured,” notes Ray. Up against Palm Beach’s mandated April to November construction time frame, the designer’s supremely organized team, along with Mitch Gold of Derco Construction, deftly managed to stay on their tight under two-year seasonal schedule. “When I walked into the completed project I felt like I had stepped onto a cloud,” says the wife, who lives in New York with her husband and two grown children. The couple purchased the Palm Beach condominium as their snowbird retreat. “It is just so peaceful. You never want to leave.” By all accounts the husband-and-wife team were on the same page—both enjoying and seeking light, sun, ocean, peace and quiet—looking for a fresh, new feeling.

Ray readily embraced the client’s wishes with a predominantly white interior featuring soft clean lines and a sophisticated beach house feel. She designed custom furniture pieces and infused the spaces with blue hues and accessories that glimmer and glow. “It’s a contemporary take on a Hamptons house,” says Ray. “We used tongue-and-groove paneling, hand-brushed white painted woodwork, wainscoting and dark walnut floors throughout the residence.” One of the most appealing characteristics of the property is its spacious first floor location, which affords the intimate feeling of a home with direct access from all rooms to the loggia and garden, and the sparkling ocean just a few steps beyond. “To capitalize on the indoor-outdoor connection, we used light linen Rodolph curtains that just float throughout,” says Ray. Immediately upon entering the circular foyer, one is transported into a calming, bright seaside oasis and the eye, which at first is captivated by a Venetia Studium fixture suspended over a round custom bleached and

distressed ashwood table, is drawn down a hallway that leads to the main living space and to the lawn and ocean beyond. A sense of private tropical calm is apparent. “The living room, den, kitchen and dining area are all essentially one large space divided and defined by the allocation of furniture,” says Ray. Two generously proportioned armchairs and two sofas, set around an oversize white leather tufted ottoman serving as a coffee table, provide an intimate and sophisticated gathering spot in the living room, where two glass walls offer unobstructed views of the water. Cleverly incorporated hints of the ocean abound with accents such as a pair of starfish-inspired light blue ottomans and an assortment of brilliant blue vases. “The den is delineated by a white tongueand-groove paneled ceiling,” says Ray, who gave the room a comfortable yet casual feel by incorporating wood pieces such as a vintage coffee

Blue hues are evident throughout the residence, sometimes in a surprising fashion as seen with the brilliant, blue and white loose zigzag-patterned fabric chosen for the barstools, which pull up to the Bahia granite bar separating the kitchen from the dining area. “The master suite introduces slightly more glamour,” notes Ray. “The pieces are a little bit dressier.” A cream silk tufted headboard, silver-and-glass side tables by the sofa and a crystal chandelier create a slightly more feminine and formal feeling. “The master bathroom is pristine without

being icy,” says Ray, who created a soothing retreat using mosaic tilework both for the flooring—where an inset trim gives the illusion of an area rug—and for the walls, where inset mirrors appear to be floating, adding depth to the space. Creating a warm atmosphere using clean lines and whites and blues can be a challenge, yet for this Palm Beach gem it was unquestionably achieved. “It feels like a pearl, a little diamond,” exclaims the wife. “I just want to keep it to myself. It’s just more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.” L

HigH Style It’s fitting that Zang Toi’s fashion atelier is dubbed “House of Toi.” It is, after all, where the designer crafts his luxury couture collections that, unbeknownst to many, bear striking similarities to his Upper East Side pied-à-terre. “There’s an element of glamour that shows in both my home design and fashion line,” Toi says. Inspired by Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, Toi tested his creative prowess when he set out to revamp an early-20th-century apartment with preciously detailed antiques and opuFashion veteran Valentino created these peep-toe pumps with raised black embroidery atop cream leather to mimic a lace finish.

lent textures. Much like his runway creations, it’s the well-articulated details—silver leaf, crystal accents, a two-tone palette that was implemented to mimic the appearance of a black and white photograph—that define Toi’s work. When asked what the fashion equivalent is to his home, Toi says, “I see it as a glamorous black and white gown with silver beading, worn by a modern-day Marie Antoinette.” houseoftoi.com
Trend Spotted: Fur-trimmed pillows and any type of furnishing with mink trim are so chic right now.
Crafted with solid carved beechwood and a caned back, the curved silhouette and distressed finish of this chair evoke classic French sophistication. Arpege, price available upon request; roche-bobois.com

Posh accents in the sitting room, such as a custom silver-fox rug, antique Baccarat chandelier and portraits of Marie Antoinette by artist Natasha Zupan, pop against high-gloss white walls. More of Toiâ€™s home can be seen in the book American Fashion Designers at Home, available through Assouline (assouline.com).

COLOR THEORY THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND REBEL-CHIC FASHION HOUSE LIBERTINE HAS A HIDDEN AFFINITY FOR INTERIORS, MADE EVIDENT IN THE MODERN TRANSFORMATION OF HIS RUSTIC LOS ANGELES BUNGALOW.
REFASHIONED APPROACH Fans of Johnson Hartig’s lauded eco-friendly fashion label Libertine revel in his ability to turn tired vintage clothing into couture ensembles. So, it comes as no surprise that Hartig’s eye for refashioning antiques seems to effortlessly translate to interiors, too. “I love collecting, being resourceful, mixing things up and surprising people,” Hartig says. Such was his method when he set out to design A solid piece of wood forms the band for this unique cuff, complete with a 14-karat gold accent with spinel and white coral charms. 14K YG Spinel & Coral Cuff, $6,950; devillefinejewelry.com
his Los Angeles home, incorporating a mix of vintage and modern pieces, vibrant Damien Hirst paintings and graphic black and white fabrics. Rules rarely apply to the self-taught designer, who often finds inspiration in the unexpected and pays little attention to trends, which explains, Hartig says, why the evolution of his interiors is as constant as his couture collections. “My home, like Libertine, is always a work in progress.” ilovelibertine.com
Design Tip: Go wild, edit and try as many combinations as you need until something jumps out.
Available in a number of coverings from Elite Leather, this soft angular swivel chair features a brushed aluminum base and unique upholstered body. Palos Verdes, price available upon request; eliteleather.com
Sneak Peek: I’m in a ’70s mood for spring 2012. It’s an era that made a big impression on me, even as a kid decorating my bedroom.
Interior Insight: I like to make sure every room has one great antique piece as an anchor, and then I work from there.
Part of ABC Carpet’s Color Reform collection, this antique, hand-woven rug was over-dyed in Turkey to give it a deep, saturated color. Purple Color Reform Vintage Rug, $2,999; abccarpet.com
Up Next: I was approached before to design a line for the home and wasn’t ready. Now, I think I am.
Johnson Hartig’s fall collection for Libertine is reminiscent of works of art, specifically, he says, “post-World War German expressionistic prints. We took a small area and blew it up to get the look we were going for.” 358 L U X E I N T E R I O R S

paint the town The living room of fashion designer Johnson Hartigâ€™s 1920s Los Angeles bungalow boasts a smorgasbord of colors and styles, all set against a white-painted shell and rustic wooden roof. A color-saturated painting by Damien Hirst centers a wall of art, while an oversized Lucite table and graphic chairs add modernity. Hartigâ€™s home was featured in the book American Fashion Designers at Home, available through Assouline (assouline.com).

STAYING POWER FROM THE EARLY CREATION OF DIANE VON FURSTENBERG’S ICONIC WRAP DRESS TO THE INTRODUCTION OF HER ANTICIPATED LINE OF HOME DÉCOR, IT SEEMS THERE’S NOTHING THE RESPECTED STYLE ARBITER CAN’T TACKLE.
BRANCHING OUT It’s little known that Diane von Furstenberg’s passion for interior design stretches as far back as the 1980s, when, while lovers of the DVF brand were admiring her revival of figure-flattering dresses, she released a series of books on home décor. “I love the balance between color, texture, pattern and proportion that can exist in both fashion and the home,” she says. Often acclaimed Turkish jewelry designer Sevan Biçakçi crafted this ornate ring with 24-karat gold, white, yellow and cognac diamonds and pink tourmaline cabochons. R3028, $9,887; barneys.com
for her liberal use of pattern and color, it seemed a natural transition for von Furstenberg to later debut lines of homeware and textiles. Most recently, von Furstenberg channeled her expert sense of interior design in a series of suites for the venerable Claridge’s hotel in London. “My aim was to respect the legendary glamour of the hotel, while incorporating pieces that beautifully illustrate my passion for pattern, texture and travel.” dvf.com
Muse: I am always inspired by women, nature and the 20th century. For me, these sources are timeless.
An intricate hand-carved wood frame wraps a gilded inset frame on this luxurious statement-making mirror from Christopher Guy. 50-2926, price available upon request; christopherguy.com
Design Tip: Have fun with textures, large prints, florals and stripes in ways that make you feel beautiful, but comfortable.
Philosophy: I design clothes that I love and that I think women will feel beautiful wearing. The same applies to my home products.

Interior Insight: Use boldly patterned wallpaper, bedding and rugs with calculated purpose. These should be focal points in a room.

What would your kitchen look like if it were...
Designed By A Chef
ost homeowners are primarily concerned with the “wow” factor of how their new kitchen will look when complete. Quite often, they overlook another extremely important factor: functionality. Although we hold visual appeal in high regard, we design your kitchen around how you use it on a daily basis. Do you entertain in small groups or large parties?
Trust your kitchen design and fine cabinet selection to the experts who have years of culinary experience in their repertoire, from the food and beverage operations at the Kravis Center & City Place to premier private functions on the Island. A LaBella kitchen will make a bold statement in aesthetics, while drawing accolades for it’s supreme functionality.

summer events Itâ€™s been an eventful summer for Luxe Interiors + Design. The festivities kicked off May 14, as Susan and George Ford, and James Bartle of Sandy James Fine Food and Production hosted a fundraising event at LEEDS Custom Design Showroom. All proceeds from the evening benefitted New Horizons Service Dogs. On May 18, Coverings ETC collaborated with other showrooms at Miami Ironside to fuse creativity and entertainment into an evening in which guests enjoyed live music, yoga, fashion design, mural creation by graffiti artists and a book signing with Beth Dunlop. Luxe was back in Miami along with other VIP guests from Brazil, Italy, New York and Miami on July 14 to celebrate the grand opening of the Vallve Showroom.
