The natural investment for long-term rewards


SOME BEDS CAN CHANGE THE WAY YOU SLEEP. ONLY ONE CAN CHANGE THE WAY YOU LIVE. Your health. Your vitality. The way you embrace each day. In

endless ways, life depends on how well you sleep, and how your bed makes you feel. No other bed can make you feel the way a Vi-Spring bed can. A Vi-Spring bed is entirely handcrafted from luxurious certified natural materials, without chemicals, polyesters or foam that can be harmful to you. This and so much more makes a Vi-Spring bed the most perfectly supportive, and most sumptuously comfortable bed in the world. When you sleep in a bed built with such care and attention, you sleep more deeply, rest more fully and wake more refreshed.

green shoots. We’re kicking off this spring in pursuit of optimism, creativity and new inspirations. Fortunately, we’ve come across much of it this year, starting in January at Maison & Objet in Paris, where green hues seemed to dominate furniture and accessories, and continuing with an upbeat mood at design markets in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The evening before I wrote this letter, we hosted dinner with a group of designer friends at San Francisco’s stylish Twenty Five Lusk. During dessert, Ted Boerner posed a thought-provoking question: “Do you know your life’s purpose?” Consider that for a moment while I share my response: “I’m not exactly sure and don’t mind being ambiguous about it.” Perhaps that’s because I consider uncertainty and curiosity to be welcome mats at the door of creativity and reinvention, an environment where ideas take shape and green shoots sprout up. All of us here, however, are quite assured when it comes to our passion for this magazine, and to serving our readers and the design community. Let me share an exciting project that will be in full bloom this November⎯ Maison de Luxe, our first national designer show house at Historic Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills, taking place in partnership with the City of Beverly Hills and the Friends of Greystone. We are delighted to have 25 of the nation’s top interior designers reimagine this exceptional estate. It is also our privilege to have Holly Hunt serve as honorary chair. Stay tuned…

IN BLOOM With Barry Dixon, Randall Whitehead and Susan Inglis at our panel for Design San Francisco; with Roger Thomas and Donghia President Crans Baldwin at Rubelli; with Nobilis President USA Jannice Reynolds at Maison & Objet.

spring. Welcome to the spring issue of Luxe Interiors + Design, Arizona. There are so many exciting events that have happened recently in our market. The first of several Luxe-sponsored events kicked off in February with Jon Summer and his team at Cyber Sound & Security to unveil the new Savant showroom. The grand opening of the Cyber Sound Experience Center was a huge success! Luxe was also proud to be a media sponsor, along with presenting sponsor GoDaddy.com and John Brooks, Inc., for the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS’ John Brooks Tour for Life in March. There were 10 homes on the elite home tour, including one by builder M.R.A. Custom Homes and architect Mark Candelaria, a historical George Christensen house designed by Wiseman and Gale Interiors, an Al Beadle home and a contemporary project by architect Marwan Al-Sayed, to name a few. Proceeds from the Tour for Life went directly to the center. Congratulations go out to Bill Lykins, Scott Burdick, Emily Mead and Carol Poore for delivering another successful home tour. For updates on future Luxe events like these, be sure to visit us at facebook.com/ luxemagazine.

DESIGN Just months after the one-year anniversary of his death, the fashion world—and, indeed, the world at large—is still reeling from the sudden loss of designer Alexander McQueen. His penchant for complex storytelling and over-the-top presentations challenged fashion conventions, and his absence reverberates strongly in the industry today. This spring, The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will honor his legacy as artist and auteur in Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. On view from May 4 through July 31, the 100-piece retrospective will explore the Briton’s body of work, ranging from his 1992 postgraduate collection to his final posthumous runway show in 2010. Themed galleries such as “The Savage Mind” and “Romantic Gothic” will take viewers deeper into the mind of this dark genius. metmuseum.org; 212.535.7710

PRODUCT IN PIECES We’ve long been fans of the exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into the mosaics by Sicis the Art Mosaic Factory. Now, the Italian brand has teamed up with fashion icon Christian Lacroix for a line of home furnishings. The designer (who partnered with Sicis independently of his own company) drew inspiration from his hometown of Arles, France, known as a treasure trove of Roman tiles and antiques, while focusing on maintaining clean lines and comfort. The result is a decidedly Old-World-New-World hybrid; look for it this June. sicis.com

DESIGN The allure of Miami Beach remains strong for international hotel brands, as yet another luxury project just opened on famed Collins Avenue: Dream South Beach. Vikram Chatwal Hotels, owners of upscale properties crisscrossing the globe, scooped up two Art Deco icons, the Tudor Hotel and the Palmer House, and merged them into a Moroccanmeets-1970s fantasyland. Designer Michael Czysz of Architropolis, a Portland firm known for its work with W Hotels, created a sexy, serene ambience with a cool color palette, mood lighting and sleek custom furniture. Highlights include the Chopra Center & Spa, the rooftop pool/lounge space Groovedeck and The Tudor restaurant by chefrestaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian. dreamsouthbeach.com; 888.376.7623

ART MIX MASTER Reconsider your concept of color: That’s both the request and goal of Carlos Cruz-Diez. This FrancoVenezuelan artist views color not as a static property but as an active process of the eye, and his exploration of color has been the driving force of his five-decade career. The first large-scale retrospective of his work, Carlos Cruz-Diez: Color in Space and Time, will be on view at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston through July 4. The show’s 150 works span from the 1940s to present day and include a dizzying array of media, from paintings (such as Chromatic induction 53, right), silk-screen prints and videos to room-size environments, architectural models and even a recreation of the artist’s studio. Elements of engineering, color theory, kinetics and craft all play a role in his interactive art, which often involves impressive production as well. mfah.org; 713.639.7300

BOOK BON VOYAGE If you just can’t squeeze in a jaunt to France this summer, reading Kathryn Ireland’s new book might be the next best thing. In Summers in France (Gibbs Smith, $35), readers tag along as the Santa Monica-based designer and her family enjoy a visit to their home in the French countryside. First, Ireland sets the scene, evoking the quaint charm of the medieval town of Montauban via snapshots, sketches and journaling. Then, the consummate hostess takes you inside their renovated farmhouse and her signature bohemian-chic style, sharing before-and-after photographs, guest room must-haves, marketplace shopping lists and recipes—overall, a formula for effortless entertaining that you can apply right at home. kathrynireland.com

Reimagining classic forms in a modern context is the forté of designer Maloos Anvarian, of DWM|Maloos, who credits her mash-up aesthetic to a multicultural childhood, which includes stints in Azerbaijan, Iran and France. Now in San Francisco, she draws from an equally wide range of influences (from John Galliano to Dorothy Draper to Philippe Starck) in creating her past-meets-present furnishings. A case in point: In her Mod-Louis Settee (left), Anvarian takes an antique Louis XVI-style chair and substitutes Plexiglas for the conventional upholstered surfaces. dwm-maloos.com; 415.864.3857

MAD FOR MOD Palm Springs recently played host to the sixth annual Modernism Week, honoring the clean lines and whimsical elegance of design, architecture and culture in the 1950s and 1960s. During the 10day event, guests were privy to architectural tours of the area’s mid-century modern sites, as well as films, lectures, an architecture symposium and Mad Men-worthy parties in private homes. The center of all the action was the Riviera Resort & Spa, a historic landmark known for its intriguing wheel-shaped design and celebrity clientele (including Elvis, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin). A recent multimillion-dollar renovation polished up this mod gem while giving it a fresh 21st-century spin.

There’s a tremendous amount of pride in the craftsmanship and quality of the product line. You can sense it throughout the entire facility. The average tenure of our labor force in

Reading is probably 30 years, where sons and fathers work side by side. When we are the ones bringing a concept from cradle to grave—in the fact that we have the designers here and the engineers in the factory— it brings the whole story together. It’s important that we control from concept all the way through to when the consumer gets it on their door. The amount of man-hours that go into the Archetypes line, for example, is astronomical as opposed to a fully automated factory. It’s anywhere from 15 to 20 artisans physically working on the product after concept, so every order has 15 to 20 people touching it along the way. Baldwin is an investment. We’re not the cheapest hardware brand, nor will we ever be. We want to make sure that people’s expectations are exceeded when they choose to invest in us.

Left: In Baldwin Hardware’s Reading, Pennsylvania, factory, upward of 20 artisans lay their hands on each product, from hand-polishing to hand-plating, such as in the Couture Collection (shown here). baldwinhardware.com

HEADQUARTERED IN BAY SHORE, NEW YORK, TEXTILE COMPANY DURALEE HAS GROWN LEAPS AND BOUNDS SINCE ITS START IN 1952, ADDING SEVERAL LINES AND A FURNITURE DIVISION TO ITS OFFERINGS. BUT, ACCORDING TO SENIOR STYLIST LAUREN PELUSIO OF THE DURALEE FABRICS DESIGN STUDIO, SOME THINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED, INCLUDING ITS FAMILYRUN STATUS AND ITS SUPPORT OF U.S. MILLS FOR SELECT COLLECTIONS.

As a hands-on, family-operated business, we can be nimble to trends and change directions as we see fit. We don’t have to answer to a

plan that is developed years ahead and can react when necessary. We buy a lot from domestic mills. We always go to them first. It’s a long-term partnership with the mill, and they can get us products faster than other countries. In our company, you can be a customer with a small problem or a big one, and your issue might wind up on the president’s desk. We are in touch with our consumers at the very highest level. We can make changes at the drop of a dime if we deem them necessary. What most interior designers are interested in are things that they don’t find everywhere else. So that’s the true key to the craftsmanship: where the mills are constantly coming up with new things that we have not seen before.

Kelly Hoppen Interiors: Inspiration and Design Solutions for Stylish, Comfortable Interiors (Rizzoli), $39.95

KELLY HOPPEN Kelly Hoppen Interiors

Hoppen often uses floating shelves to artfully display vignettes of frames and collected objects, all varied in form but united by their common color scheme.

The Kelly Hoppen by Welton home fragrance line was created with perfumer John-Paul Welton. Fragrance IV, from about $53; kellyhoppenretail.com

HOW IS THIS BOOK A DEPARTURE FROM YOUR OTHER SIX? It’s the way I approached the subject: standing very much out of the box and looking in. W HAT W A S T H E E X P E RIE N CE L IK E P UT TI NG T H IS B O O K T O G E T H ER? The book was a lot of fun but also a lot of hard work. From styling all of the shoots around the world, working on page layouts, selecting images, etc.—I have been thoroughly immersed in every part of the process. YOU’RE KNOWN FOR WORKING WITHIN A NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE. WHAT’S THE KEY TO CREATING A ROOM WITH IMPACT WHILE USING NEUTRALS? You highlight and emphasize using texture. I am not against the use of color and use color frequently; it’s just that color is used to accent rather than as the palette. YOU WROTE ABOUT CREATING DISPLAYS OF OBJECTS. WHERE ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE OFFBEAT PLACES TO SHOP FOR THEM? I love finding items whilst I travel, coming across a small shop that may not look like much from the outside but, upon entering, is a treasure trove. Never judge a shop by its exterior.

This living-dining-cooking venue is emblematic of Hoppen’s skill in space planning, as the room is segmented into three functional zones while maintaining a sense of flow and cohesiveness. The monochromatic color palette is another Hoppen trademark, drawing interest from contrasting forms and textures.

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THE AVERAGE PERSON MAKES IN DECORATING? Poor space planning, resulting in too much or too little in a room. Always remember to plan, plan, plan—and then plan a little more if you want everything to be perfect.

“There are no rules. And if they did exist, they should be broken or at least put to a very tough test.” —Charlotte Moss

Charlotte Moss Decorates: The Art of Creating Elegant and Inspired Rooms (Rizzoli), $50

CHARLOTTE MOSS Charlotte Moss New York

THI S I S YO U R S E VE N T H B O O K . H O W I S I T DI FF E RE N T F RO M T H E RE S T ? In so many ways, they’re all very similar because they all speak to a philosophy of trusting your instincts about decorating. I want it to be a kick in the pants to compel readers to go do something they’ve never done before but always wanted to.

Moss designed this bangle as part of her Wanderlust Collection for Halcyon Days. Marrakech, $700; halcyondaysonline.com

In typical Moss fashion, all of the rooms in the book—which were created for past showhouses—start with collages full of the designer’s far-flung influences.

YOU WROTE ABOUT WOMEN OF STYLE FROM THE PAST WHO INSPIRE YOU. ARE THERE WOMEN OF TODAY WHO DO THE SAME? There are a lot of people in my business who are doing exciting things. I love Alessandra Branca’s work because it’s bold and beautiful and fresh. And Mary McDonald, her work is very colorful and alive. YOU WROTE THAT YOU’RE A COLLECTOR. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR COLLECTIONS? Oh my god, I have too many. My most significant collections are my paintings of interiors, my 18th- and 19th-century garden plans and my bronze perfume burners. And I think I have now reached the age where I have to stop. WHERE ARE SOME UNLIKELY PLACES WHERE YOU DISCOVER GREAT FINDS? If you’re a hunter, there’s no place that’s unlikely because you shop everywhere. I don’t care if it’s all those shows out in the Hamptons or whether I’m in a little stall in the Paris Flea Market—you just find things.

For this great hall, Moss drew inspiration from the English country house West Wycombe Park, whose golden-hued façade is echoed in the ochre walls. The focal point of this comfortable gathering place is a central table stocked with books and curiosities that encourage guests to linger.

IN WHAT WAYS DOES YOUR SOUTHERN HERITAGE SURFACE IN YOUR DESIGN? It’s not so much in the physical; it’s in the ease and hospitality that rooms express. If a room just feels rich, who gives a damn? What are you going to do to make it inviting? And that is the ability—which is a sixth sense, in my belief—to really make a room welcoming. And I think you can do that if you live like that. And I think Southerners live like that.

“I am a big fan of The Rug Company, and I like everything about this carpet: from the beautiful images of hummingbirds in various stages of flight to the fine and detailed execution. It seems a tad menacing but in an amusing way. The rug is truly a remarkable piece. I’d love to use it for one of my fast-moving, multi-tasking clients. I think it’s a clever reference to our overachieving lifestyles.”

A contemporary pattern with platinum embellishments—rendered by hand—takes center-stage in this Limoges porcelain salad plate from Bernardaud. The company’s head creative designer, Catherine Bergen, fashioned this botanical image in effervescent hues of red, purple, pink and orange (shown here), offering a vibrant dose of color to any tablescape.

“For those not lucky enough as myself to enjoy the glories of California’s golden poppy in person, here is the next best thing, surrounded as if by the settling flakes of a snow globe. I tend to choose my plates in white or a simple variation on that theme and allow the food to do the color work. This plate is a jolly place to start a meal; it almost seems a shame to put food on it.”

French designer Philippe Delzers created this elegant cabinet as part of The Appartements Privés for Élitis. Delzers envisioned a modern collection with an ethnic twist, referencing long voyages and African legends. The cabinet’s bronze-sculpted handles with glass cabochons appear like jeweled bracelets against a scratched-wood exterior powdered with gold.

“This cabinet reminds me of the great pieces by Eugene Printz from the 1920s and ’30s. I love the leg and handle detail as well as the overall finish. It looks like a very rich piece. A pair of these in a big entry with beautiful ceramics or sculptures on top would look great. Similarly, a pair in a living room flanking the fireplace would be dramatic and wonderful.”

SANDRA WILkEN L U x U Ry P R O P E R T I E S What are the benefits of working with a Realtor? it’s imperative to protect your assets to either get the best price for a purchase or the highest price for a sale. An experienced Realtor can handle the complexities and protect clients. What questions should Sellers ask their real estate professional? 1) How well do you know the area where the home is located? 2) What have you sold in this neighborhood? 3) How many properties have you sold in the past year in my listed price range? What should Buyers ask? “How well do you know the area in which i want to live?” The agent should be knowledgeable regarding all the areas that might be of consideration for the Buyer.

Tucson artist Joe Pagac recently painted a wraparound mural of the Sonoran Desert in the patio area of The Historic Hotel Congress. Opposite: Pagac created this trompe l’oeil mural of a Santa Barbara-style courtyard in the California Design Center/Studio C Interiors showroom in Tucson.


Joe Pagac thinks—and works—in the big picture. Literally. From trompe l’oeil residential projects and surreal restaurant murals to performance paintings splashed across Tucson’s Rialto Theatre and Phoenix’s Eye

The romantic works of Italian figurative artist Pino, such as Flamenco in Red, inspire Pagac in his commercial paintings and personal work.

Lounge, it’s tough to look away from his arresting art. “I love to work big,” says the Tucson resident. “There’s something about it that’s so powerful. I love having a painting that can command a room or command a courtyard or command a street.” But Pagac’s Brobdingnagian mentality extends beyond paint. He recently leased a studio space in downtown Tucson’s upand-coming Gallery Row, and he’s hoping to trade on some of his local celebrity to start showing more of his works-on-canvas. And Tucson, while it’ll always be home, is just the beginning. “I want to produce a series of works and try to ship them to Tokyo or Paris or someplace outside the country and then travel with them,” says Pagac, who admits to a strong case of wanderlust. The world, no doubt, awaits. joepagac.com; 520.490.2794

OFF THE WALL

JOE PAGAC First Job: A client commissioned me to paint an underwater mermaid scene on his fence. The neighbors built a wall to block their view of it after it was finished.

Influences: Modern oil painters like Odd Nerdrum and Pino are favorites.

In My Toolbox: Some basic brushes, a fan brush, six gallons of premium paint and a paint roller. I can create anything, in any size, with these few things.

Next Big Buy: A plane ticket to another continent I have yet to explore; likely South America.

Inspiration: Boredom and a lack of access to any technology or communication devices. For these reasons, I have started sitting in on boring classes at the nearby university and doodling in the back of the room.

Luxury Defined: A eucalyptus-infused steam room.

Philosophy: Life is short; eat dessert first.

has brought the best of contemporary art to Scottsdale, exhibiting works by the likes of William Wegman, James Turrell and Mayme Kratz. Sette, trained in art history and studio art, looks for pieces that stimulate her intellect while stirring her emotions. “There’s always something seductive about the images that draw me in,” she says. “And they’re informative; they teach me something I don’t know.” That sort of inspiration doesn’t end when she leaves the gallery, either: She and husband Peter Shikany live in a highly unorthodox home, Phoenix’s House of Earth + Light by area architect Marwan Al-Sayed, which originally had a fabric roof. “It’s like a living work of art,” Sette says. lisasettegallery.com, 480.990.7342

AN ARTFUL LIFE

On My Nightstand: Franz Xaver Messerschmidt 1736-1783: From Neoclassicism to Expressionism from the Neue Galerie and Chang and Eng by Darin Strauss.

Prized Possession: A 19th-century Buddhist monk sculpture. I bought it at the Phoenix Art Museum antiques fair as a 40th-birthday present to myself.

Design Icon: Elm Design in Reykjavik, Iceland. They make fabulous women’s clothing. I own a couple of their dresses; they’re like art.

Self-Indulgence: Wheat-free coconut macaroons.

Current Obsession: Fiona Pardington, a New Zealand photographer of Maori descent. I own one of her images of a Maori chief. Out of respect for Maori beliefs, there are restrictions on the photograph with regard to reproduction and marketing. It is an honor to live with the artist’s vision and the chief ’s spirit.

larger than oneself. As part of their graduate work at Arizona State University, brothers Ben and Andrew Walker helped create the 10-member Studio 1to1. The project, which Ben describes as “a multifaceted design practice emphasizing human-centered research,” won the architecture program’s top independent thesis prize. Today, despite busy day jobs—Ben with Phoenix’s Tomecak Design and Andrew with Tempe’s Architekton— the Tempe-based duo remains devoted to the studio. “We were fortunate to segue from an academic thesis to a real-life, very political project,” says Andrew, referring to their current work on transit stations along Phoenix’s nascent light rail. Such endeavors “require us to go out into the field,” explains Ben, “to understand the places and people.” Only then, notes Andrew, can the team “develop innovative solutions that tie into research, architecture and urban design.” studio1to1.org

“We didn’t want to do what everybody else was doing,” Amy says. “We wanted it to be inspiring and something that was playful because of the kids.” Amy and Michael, once high school sweethearts in their native South Dakota, had spent time on the East Coast and fallen in love with the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. They chose Kevin B. Howard, principal architect of Kevin B. Howard Architects in Oro Valley, and designer Douglas Marsceill, owner and founder of Marsceill Design Interiors in Los Angeles, to create what Howard calls a “desertmodern Zen” home, nestled unobtrusively into the surrounding natural landscape with a jewel-like array of light-filled interiors.

Bordering a national forest, the lot not only affords pristine views but has two arroyos meandering down the slope—a challenge that ultimately made the site special. The home nevertheless bridges the arroyo with a light hand, connecting the north and south wings via the “floating” living room. A striking glass enclosure affords breathtaking views and a close connection with nature. “What people didn’t recognize as an unbelievable lot, Kevin did,” recalls builder Berner F. Loftfield, president of Tucson’s Desert West Construction, who helmed the build with Scott Schagel. “It was the last to be developed, but now it seems like the best lot in the whole subdivision.” The landscaping approach utilized a repeating rhythm of certain plants, such as Mexican fence post cacti, golden barrel cacti and elephant food. “Everything was about restoring the natural landscape,” says landscape designer Tray Gers, of Tucson’s The Garden Gate.

TRANSITION AREA The house has two outdoor rooms: the communal space off the family room to the rear, featuring outdoor furniture from Janus et Cie in West Hollywood, and another on the roof of the garage. In the distance is a pool and spa, by Cimarron Circle Construction Company in Tucson, and an array of native plantings.

With such a big family, extra thought was given to how kids and parents could interact amidst their everyday activities, so the heart of the home is a wide-open area comprising the great room, kitchen and family room. In the kitchen, “we pulled that breakfast table off the main island. The concept for me was like a country kitchen with a kitchen table,” Marsceill remembers. “Amy’s thought was that she’d be cooking and could interact with the kids while they’re doing homework.” The two outdoor rooms offer different ambiences. “The one on the north is where the house feels earth-integrated. It’s very cozy,” Howard explains. “In the south, it’s on the roof of the garage because of the sloping site. You feel like you’re on top of the world.” Marsceill chose a muted color palette, utilizing soft earth tones such as limestone floors and oak cabinetry, but adding occasional bursts of color, like tangerine pillows on the family-room sofas. At the same time, the designer favored an array of textural materials, from the antique copper on the fireplace to the sandblasted glass in the vanity bathroom sink to the smooth travertine countertops in the master bathroom. “I love mixing rustic and new materials,” Marsceill says. “And every color came from outside. The orange is from the cacti that bloom just beyond the glass. I think it makes the color feel more intense.”

PROGRESSIVE LIVING The entry stairway was fabricated by Artec Industries in Benson, featuring limestone from Conway Tile Company in Tucson. With plantings, “the premise was to renaturalize those with the same kind of rock and vegetation that would have been there originally,” says landscape designer Tray Gers. Another green-minded feature is the rooftop solar paneling, by Solar Path in Oro Valley, that provides half the home’s electricity.


SUITE SURRENDER The master bedroom centers on a floating bed from In-Ex in Beverly Hills, California, with a neon lamp in the headboard. Odeon Chairs from Donghia in LA ank a custom cowhide ottoman from Gibson in LA. The ďŹ replace is a mixture of colored concrete and brickwork that extends to the outside.


LIFE AQUATIC In the master bathroom, glass mosaic tile by Walker Zanger in West Hollywood festoons the backsplash and wraps around the wall to a thin window. The limestone flooring and silver travertine countertops are also by Walker Zanger, and the Robern mirrors are from HD Altmans in LA.

While Amy and Michael are as happy in their new home as when they first met, the striking contemporary structure isn’t lost on their children, either. “I know, at their ages, they have no clue what they’re living in, but I do know they are inspired by it. Some of them are animal lovers, and some are artists. I think that comes from the juxtaposition of being able to see the city in our front yard and coyotes and cacti in the back.” Sounds like the habitat of a happy Huether Bunch. L

UPWARDLY MOBILE A grand staircase in the foyer sets an Old World tone, ascending in a graceful curve toward the second floor.

Arizona has become that sort of place, says architect Jeff Innes, a principal (with founder Erik Peterson) at PHX Architecture in Scottsdale. “People from all over the world come here to live, and they want the look of the places they came from.” So neighborhoods like the city’s Arcadia arose from orange groves and ranches precisely for émigrés who eschewed adobe or modernist homes for architectural styles reminiscent of native terrains. Case in point: the Norman-inspired home that Innes designed for Amy and Andrew Cohn.

ACCESSIBLE ELEGANCE Crown molding by Perry Woodworks in Phoenix, an antique fireplace from Westland London and parquet walnut floors by Timberwood Floors in Scottsdale telegraph the living room’s traditional formalism. But upholstered furnishings— bergères from Ralf’s Antiques in West Hollywood, California, low-slung slipper chairs and a sofa covered in Ralph Lauren’s floral-embossed mohair—balance it with a plush sense of modern comfort.

Amy hails from Cleveland, Andrew from Long Island. “We desired a home that reflected the traditional styles and architectural elements typical in the neighborhoods we grew up in,” says Amy, who has a background in interior architecture, space planning and design, and worked closely with PHX on the layout. “Jeff, who had worked on many homes on the East Coast as an apprentice, understood how to embrace architectural authenticity while adapting it for the Southwest.” One characteristic element of desert living, for example, is an enhanced indooroutdoor relationship, commonly accomplished these days with walls of glass that open the interiors to the landscape. But how to achieve this in a historic context? “We stuck to traditional devices: French doors, a conservatory, extended terraces,” explains Innes. To further adapt the conservatory to Arizona’s punishing sun, Innes capped it with a zinc roof instead of a glass one.

Though this bath’s proportions are lavish, the cabinetry, with its warm blue-green finish, adds a French provincial air that keeps things grounded. The trellis wallpaper also brings everything back to earth by making the space feel less soaring. The tile and stone are from Facings of America in Scottsdale.


COUNTER CULTURE The secondary island, designed in the form of a bombĂŠ chest, offers a countervailing layer of richness to the all-white cabinetry by Desert Cove Woodworks in Phoenix. The marble countertops are from Stockett Tile & Granite Company in Phoenix.

Another challenge was the oblong parcel of land on a cul-de-sac with barely 60 feet of frontage. “It had to have presence,” says Innes. “Our approach was to have the house tell a story, as if it had been enlarged over successive generations. We created a gabled portion that would look like it was the original house and made the rest stucco so it looked added onto.” The decision to clad it in reclaimed, creamy-white brick came from another Arizona transplant: Nancy Brunkhorst, owner of Nance Construction in Scottsdale, which built the home. Brunkhorst grew up in the Midwest, where this material was ubiquitous. “Since it was handmade and reclaimed, plus had a great color,” she explains, “I felt it would give the texture that a home this size would need to soften its presence.” Andrew adds: “We wanted to use materials that were durable and generational, that were timeless. This brick is a trademark of many older buildings in the Midwest.”

COLONIAL CHIC Paul Montgomery Studio in Churchville, Virginia, executed the hand-painted pastoral scene that deďŹ nes the New England-style dining room, which is crisply framed by traditional wainscoting painted a creamy white. The room also features a crystal chandelier from Currey & Company in Atlanta, draperies from Pindler & Pindler in Scottsdale and a Georgian dining table and sideboard from Holland & Company in Atlanta.


BRICK BY BRICK Architect Jeff Innes designed the modestly proportioned front entry to look like an original structure that was subsequently added onto. Builder Nancy Brunkhorst had more than 50,000 white bricks brought by rail and truck from the Midwest to soften the steeply peaked roofs and large volumes of the architecture.

Clearly, the interiors also had to depart from the indigenous kivas and Navajo rugs so prevalent in Southwest décor. Innes was initially skeptical about Amy’s decision to handle this herself. “When an owner says they’re going to do the

The circular vaulted conservatory showcases diamond-patterned, leaded beveled glass, much like conservatories and solaria found in England.

interiors themselves, you kind of just hope for the best,” he says, chuckling. “But Amy just blew us away.” Taking her cues from “a number of antique pieces we had collected over the years, either passed down to us by family or bought together mostly on our travels,” says Amy, “my decisions were intuitive.” One of those intuitions was to offset the elegant architectural elements PHX created (wainscoting, crown moldings and built-ins) with “more casually upholstered soft furniture.”

GALLIC DREAMING “The master bedroom required nothing more than a bed, nightstands and a bench,” says Amy, “because the extensive woodwork and decorative hardware fill the space and define the room.” The home’s lighting design was done by LiteFX in Scottsdale.

turquoise silk-upholstered bergères, the conservatory’s vaulted proportions are humanized with supple drapery, and a wrap-around mural and damaskswathed armchairs warm the formality of the Georgian dining room. In effect, then, the road home for the Cohns doubles back to Arcadia. “Many homeowners in this neighborhood grew up here and have returned to raise their own families,” observes Amy. Whether fourth-generation or newly arrived, she adds, they come “with the desire to be part of a tight-knit community without walls and gates separating them.” A community, in other words, like the ones they used to call home.

You can superimpose a traditional treatment on a contemporary house and let the pieces fall where they will, but this was a more calculated equation.” Taking his color cue from the rock veneer of the home’s exterior, Miller went with a gray palette expressed in subtle variations of color and material, apparent as soon as one enters the sleek entryway. A large print of a Buddha by Doug and Mike Starn presides over the space’s mid-tone gray walls and vein-cut travertine floors. “It feels warm and really Zen,” Miller says. The entryway was reconfigured as part of a remodel of the master suite, kitchen and lower-level bedrooms

The foyer, with a cubed skylight, leads to a steel gate original to the house. Interior designer David Michael Miller implemented the center-pivot door in the foreground a couple of years before the major remodel; it comprises ebonized white oak, an embossed bronze plate and bronze poles cast by Corbin Bronze in Kansas City, Kansas.


SUBTLE PALETTE Two antique Chinese chests from Charles Jacobsen in Culver City, California, draw the eye across the living room. An existing ottoman covered in Rose Tarlow leather faces a fireplace with a surround fabricated by Stockett Tile & Granite Company in Phoenix. Adjacent is a Dessin Fournir sofa from Kneedler-Fauchère in West Hollywood, California, upholstered in Nancy Corzine fabric and illuminated by a lamp from Therien & Co. in Los Angeles. Behind the sofa is the dining area, anchored by a Dessin Fournir table (designed by Miller and purchased at Kneedler-Fauchère) and surrounded by chairs from Michael Taylor in LA, covered in Fortuny fabric.

and bathrooms, which replaced a congested warren of closed-off rooms with spacious areas that flow together and take advantage of the spectacular vistas of Camelback Mountain. For the remodel, which transformed as much as two-thirds of the home, Miller brought in Phoenix architect Susan Biegner, founder and partner of Biegner-Murff Architects, and Desert Star Construction of Scottsdale. Biegner had a solution for warming up the airy rooms that resonated with the contemporary structure. “We STYLE SELECTION This abstract expressionist painting by New York School artist Esteban Vicente hangs over the living room fireplace.

Some premium materials, such as the European black granite used for the lower-level bar, required long lead times to acquire, but the yearlong renovation came in on schedule, says David Schumm, project manager with Desert Star, who worked on the construction with Jerry Meek.

The remodeled kitchen flows around an island created by Christopher Peacock Cabinetry in West Hollywood and paired with Rose Tarlow Melrose House barstools, purchased at John Brooks in Scottsdale.

Peacock also constructed the painted cabinets above the Le Nid tile backsplash from Exquisite Surfaces in Beverly Hills, California.

Above the seating area, sunflower-hued pots from Antiquities in Scottsdale provide some color. A light fixture by Niermann Weeks illuminates the space.


PARADISE FOUND Camelback Mountain offers the main decorative feature in the pool area, where the homeowners can lounge on cast-aluminum chairs from Murray’s Iron Works in LA covered in Perennials outdoor fabric from Inside/Out in Scottsdale. Miller designed the bench planter clad in a greige Buddy Rhodes concrete and ďŹ lled with tubular rush.

GREAT DIVIDE To partition the master suite into a more intimate bedroom and sitting area when the occasion calls for it, Miller designed bookcases of quarter-sawn white oak (with a ceruse treatment) that disappear into pockets. Unifying the space are white oak floors from Premiere Wood Floors in Phoenix. The bed was built by Dessin Fournir, purchased from Kneedler-Fauchère, and modified according to Miller’s specifications; it sits on a Stark rug.

To add an intimate touch to the expanded master suite, which has a glass wall, Miller designed bookcases that divide the space into a sitting room and a bed-

The Dennis & Leen bedside table is a Louis XVI reproduction with a limestone top, from Dean Warren in Scottsdale.

room or slide into pockets when they’re not needed. The home’s showcase is the living room, which took two antique Chinese chests already in the couple’s collection as a starting point. Miller filled out the room with Chinese burial artifacts, comfortable seating in a range of grays and a custom black-lacquered table by Dessin Fournir that references the Chinese chests. “I wanted it to be eclectic,” Miller says. “In an earlier iteration, the room was beigey. The client likes drama and elegance, and I wanted the room to do that.” L

H O M E A S A “D I A M O N D I N T H E R OUG H ” I N S C OT TS DA L E ’S D E S E R T H I G H L A N D S . Having remodeled a 1940s home in Chicago and

built a custom home in Utah, they weren’t intimidated by the fact that the property needed some help. Originally built eight years ago, the house had good bones, but repetitive interiors with literal references to the Pueblo Revival style were begging for a design transfusion. Furthermore, the interiors didn’t relate to the spectacular surrounding vistas. INTERIOR DESIGN Janet Friedman, ASID, and Traci Shields,

The homeowner interviewed interior designers but didn’t find a fit until looking through a magazine. “There was an advertisement for Friedman & Shields with photographs of rooms that were not my taste at all; they were much more contemporary,” she says. “But they were very beautiful—and I appreciated the beauty!” Once brought on board, designers Janet Friedman and Traci Shields, of Friedman & Shields Associates in Scottsdale, drew on a transitional style they call “contemporary territorial,” a combination of contemporary design and the more relaxed territorial style, to update the home and breathe some much-needed life into it. The front door’s massive solid-wood panel was relinquished to one with windows that maintains the Southwest sensibility while brightening up the foyer. Mullioned windows throughout the home were replaced with taller clear-view windows to take full advantage of the golf course view, and the former blockwall fence that further obscured the beautiful greens was replaced with the deconstructed profile of minimalist rebar stakes. A French door was also removed, making way for a 16-foot-wide sliding glass door that brings in more light and creates easy outdoor access.

SOUTHWEST WELCOME Landscape architect Tracey Adams created a sense of arrival for the home with beds of golden barrel cactus. Rust-colored urns, a flagstone pathway and dramatic lighting honor tradition while hinting at the interior’s new contemporary vibe.


TUMBLED ORGANICS Natural stone and stripped-log rafters, known as vigas, are now more dramatic thanks to new textures like custom alder-wood cabinets from Blue Horizons in Phoenix and BeamsDesign in Silver City, New Mexico, as well as a custom spoon-carved console crafted by Earth & Images in Scottsdale. The Timber coffee table by Mimi London is composed of wood blocks wrapped in metal and was acquired at John Brooks in Scottsdale. Beverly Hills, California, artist Kyle Cody’s oil landscape, Road to Oak Alley, leads the eye to the landscape outside.


BRANCHING OUT The dining area’s custom branch light fixture by Paul Ferrante was purchased at John Brooks. The rubbedbronze Milan table base is by Century Furniture and was purchased from the Scottsdale showroom. The figured cherry Higashi tabletop is by Apache Junction artist Ronald Gill and was acquired at Trappings in Scottsdale. Dining chairs are by All Wood Treasures Co. in Tempe, in a woven fabric by Pollack from JW Harris in Scottsdale. The ginger jars are from Brix Home in Scottsdale.

Inside, dated square openings in walls near the ceiling were merged into more contemporary horizontal elements, and redundant display niches were walled over to improve visual flow and create broader expanses for large artwork. “People are moving away from clutter and toward open, cleaner, more contemporary spaces,” says builder Jason Smith, owner and principal of Identity Construction in Scottsdale. Interestingly, Smith was recruited to the project by the designers and, by sheer coincidence, was also the home’s original builder, with his father, Dan, formerly head of Phoenix Smith & Co., Inc. (Dan remains a consultant and project manager at the company, which Jason renamed when he took the helm.) “A lot has changed in these eight years as far as how we view STYLE SELECTION Designed by Paul Ferrante, this light fixture is available in a variety of finishes, shown here in iron with a Dutch metal finish, providing an organic focal point.

how a home, great room or a kitchen function,” Jason says. “What was up to date and satisfactory at the time is no longer sought after.” Walls were washed a warm neutral, and subtly reflective surfaces like reglazed cabinets and metallic glass tile above the range now dance in the light. Rich hues of copper, sage and graphite were also introduced. “Patina drew everything together,” Friedman explains. “Before, everything was flat and rough.

There was no real contrast to the stone and beams. So we put in contrasting textures like wool and silk rugs and woods like the sofa-back table that make you want to run your fingers over them.” Before construction, the man of the house scouted out a view of the sunset and staked the location of his soon-to-be-favorite chair, where an intimate seating arrangement just off the dining room has become a preferred place to relax. A dining table was positioned in the middle of the enormous great room to create three distinct living areas, and, where a heavy 5-foot-wide traditional chandelier once hovered ominously over the dining table, a delicate branchstyle fixture now adds artful ambiance that doesn’t compete with the view. The fireplace wall remains the focal point in the great room, now outfitted with cabinetry in a shallower profile for today’s slimmer electronics and liquid metal accents layered onto the copper and stone. Recessed ceiling lights and hidden illumination visually wring every drop of subtle coloration from wood, stone and metal.

EARTHY SPARKLE In the kitchen, cabinets received new life with reglazing and iron pulls by Rocky Mountain Hardware from Flair Supply Company in Scottsdale. The custom light fixture by 2nd Ave. Lighting was acquired at Alexander • Sinclair in Scottsdale, as were the counter stools by Wesley Hall. Tres Feltman tile from Ann Sacks in Scottsdale adds sheen to the backsplash.


DYNAMIC ENERGY A banquette and custom-crafted table echo the curves of the breakfast alcove. The olive wood tabletop with solid alder band was crafted by BeamsDesign so the grains radiate in a graceful sunburst. The table base of distressed hot-rolled steel was crafted by Blue Horizons. The chairs were manufactured by and acquired from Walters Wicker in Teterboro, New Jersey, and covered in faux leather from Pindler & Pindler in Scottsdale. The woven tray is from Palecek in San Francisco.


WELL DRESSED In the relaxing master bedroom, recessed ceiling channels hide mechanicals for motorized room-darkening blinds from Mr. P’s Blind and Shade Company in Scottsdale. The Berman Rosetti bed from John Brooks is dressed in seven fabrics, including silk, wool, cashmere and a variety of textured and woven fabrics that coordinate with the chaise by Classic Custom Upholstery & Furniture in Scottsdale. The alder bedside tables with zebrawood ďŹ nish were custom-made by Blue Horizons and BeamsDesign.


WARM EMBRACE The master bath includes a bust fashioned from banana leaves acquired from Trappings and purchased for the homeowner by a friend. The sea of warm earth tones includes reglazed wood cabinetry, honed travertine, a rug from Azadi in Scottsdale and a vanity bench by Scottsdale ironworker Vilma Besch in fabric from John Brooks. The vases are by Kinder-Harris for Paragon.

Outside, landscape architect Tracey Adams, of Phoenix’s Duo Design Group, redesigned the front and rear yards. Her work on the former included creating an agave garden and removing part of the patio for more planting space. For the latter, she tamed overgrown vegetation for better views and added a seat wall and fireplace, amongst other changes. Adams chose arid plants that would “perform best during the months the clients are in town,” she says. Today, the house’s zestful joi de vivre measures up to the majesty of the panoramic Arizona highlands. Best of all, the couple feels right at home. “I love it,” says the lady of the house. “The reveal was just unbelievable—one of the most euphoric moments of my life.” L

UPWARD BOUND WHILE RESIDENTS OF CHICAGO KNOW A THING OR TWO ABOUT LESS-THAN-PERFECT WINTER WEATHER, AN APPRECIATION FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS IS NEVER LACKING, AS EVIDENT IN THIS HIGH-RISE TERRACE.

Designer Jamie Dietrich crafted this home accent for Anthropologie using 19th-century glass and a found piece of coral. Beach Find Bottle, Coral, $598; anthropologie.com

URBAN EATS A quaint dining area comprising pieces from Janus et Cie occupies a corner of the 18th-floor terrace, allowing alfresco diners uninhibited views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan.

Add a pop of color to a seating area with Ballard Designs’ outdoor-friendly acrylic accent pillow, available in several designs. Tuscan Stripe, $39; ballarddesigns.com

SUBTLE SEPARATION Just as interiors are divided into rooms, so, too, should this method be applied to the outdoors. Scott Byron, landscape architect and CEO of Lake Bluff, Illinois-based Scott Byron & Company, designated areas on this terrace for different activities. “There’s a small lounging space by the barbecue, a larger dining area and a more intimate sitting spot,” he says. “It’s a very large terrace, so we had to find a way to create a sense of intimacy through furniture placement and scale.”

PICTURE SPOT Having a high-rise terrace in a large city is a luxury many choose The 31-inch depth of this reclaimed teak planter allows for strong root growth of plantings in less forgiving environments. Reclaimed Teak Flower Pot, price available upon request; halostyles.com

to enjoy. Accordingly, Byron always bases his design concepts for high-rise projects on one thing—the scenery. “Everything you do on a terrace is about the views,” he says. “A successful landscape design is kept very simple. It’s not about adding layers of stuff so much as it is about taking the layers away.” Minimal and unfussy plantings, furniture and accessories work best, as shown in the scene at right, featuring Janus et Cie’s Amalfi II collection, surrounded by crabapple, lilac and boxwood.

WIND POWER Chicagoans know their beloved habitat isn’t dubbed the Windy City without reason. As a landscape architect, Byron must consider these weather extremes. “On higher floors, we have to design a space that would hold up if it were to be hit Thin, elongated legs provide a delicate touch to Janus et Cie’s powder-coated stainless steel sofa from the Amalfi II collection.

with a Category 4 hurricane,” he says. For this project, that meant heavy wrought-iron furniture and deep, sturdy wooden planters that allow the roots of the plantings to penetrate far below the top of the soil.

Deep planters made of ipe, a South American hardwood, are durable enough to survive the winter climate and strong Chicago winds.

POOL VIEW The open-air cabana of this Newport Coast, California, estate, featuring a coffee table from Paul Ferrante and chairs from Palecek, connects two wings of the home.

DUAL HOUSE Midwestern artist Ken Rausch created this vivid outdoor painting on a copper “canvas” for Frontgate. Original Copper Outdoor Art, from $199; frontgate.com

It’s not hard to imagine a night spent outdoors when the luxuries of the interiors are present. In the pool house at right, Sheldon Harte, principal of Laguna Beach, California’s Harte Brownlee & Associates, along with Irvine, California’s EBTA Architects, incorporated such elements as radiant floor heating and retractable doors that close to the outside on command. “The structure allows people the luxury of being outside but not exposed to the elements of sun and moisture,” Harte says. “But it can also be used as auxiliary guest space.”

COMFORT ZONE Fortunately for homeowners, no longer does the “outdoor-friendly” label mean you must sacrifice comfort. “Outdoor furnishings have come so far in recent years,” Harte says. “They handle much better, Los Angeles designer Kristen Buckingham’s first line of outdoor furnishings includes this intricate piece, shown in traditional teak. Laurent Étagère, $19,500; kristenbuckingham.com

and there are so many more options in material and style.” With a plethora of possibilities—from canvas and acrylic fabrics to wood, wicker and steel furnishings to outdoor paintings, sculpture and lighting—transforming the outdoors into an extension of the home is effortless.

WEATHER REPORT Combating the everyday sun and moisture of a coastal Southern California property is best achieved through covered environments with means for temperature control. But, Harte says, that’s not the only weather concern he’s dealt with. “The Santa Ana winds can wreak havoc on exposed furniture and plants, particularly on Inspired by Roman architecture, this chair from Brown Jordan comprises hand-forged aluminum.

the coast.” Securing loose chairs, chaises and planters, or bringing them inside when the winds get strong, is essential to protect pieces from damage.

Every South Florida waterfront home begs for ample outdoor lounging space, and this Tuscan-style structure by interior designer Carola Hinojosa, principal at Miami’s Hinojosa Design Studio, and Miami architect Ramon Pacheco, of Ramon Pacheco & Associates, Architect and Planner, is no exception. “We aimed to create a very relaxed and calm atmosphere,” Hinojosa says. The spacious rear terrace features stone columns, light-walnut travertine flooring and contrasting dark wood beams on the ceiling.

SOCIAL NETWORK Designed to be enjoyed alone or with the owners’ frequent guests, the terrace is equipped with a variety of seating options, including Jeffrey Court’s crushed glass mosaics are perfect for dressing up an accent wall behind a grill or outdoor kitchen.

single chaise lounges by the pool, space for two dining rooms—one more formal and the other casual—and a lounge area. Outdoor kitchen and bar areas allow the hosts the freedom to stay near their guests. “I encourage my clients to enjoy the outdoors as much as they can,” Hinojosa says. “That’s what living in Florida is all about.”

MATERIAL WORLD Though it’s easy to enjoy an outdoor living room, South Floridians must take heed of the furnishings they opt to leave outside. “Choosing the correct materials is essential for the outdoors in Florida,” Hinojosa says. “Avoid any metals, unless they are powder Sutherland Furniture’s dining table features a teak top with lazy Susan attachment.

coated or protected, due to the risk of oxidation.” The humid climate of South Florida works best with wood, stone and outdoor-friendly fabrics, as evident in Hinojosa’s selections of the teak Sutherland furniture and fabric from Perennials seen here.

NATURAL GROWTH The uneven terrain of Colorado often brings with it architectural hurdles. In this case, it was an old-growth Ponderosa pine located centrally in the site’s building envelope. “Challenges often represent opportunities for extraordinary design solutions,” says Valerie Alexander Yaw, principal at Aspen’s Bluegreen. “We chose to preserve the tree and design the home around this great specimen.” Staying true to the environment, Yaw repurposed materials from the site and sourced local stone, boulders and wood for the outdoor living spaces.

CREATIVE FORCE Working closely with nature warrants plenty of opportunities to Upholster pillows and cushions in hues evocative of nature, such as those in this turquoise striped fabric from Perennials. Jake Stripe, Agave, price available upon request; perennialsfabrics.com

be creative. While much of the home and outdoor features are clad in natural materials, Yaw incorporated a series of contrasting stainless-steel poles, some outfitted with light fixtures, to add interest and serve a functional purpose. “I was inspired by the client’s seemingly simple request for a place to hang his robe when relaxing in the spa,” she says. “They were designed to mimic the property’s natural pine forest.”

NEW HEIGHTS While Coloradans enjoy prime outdoor weather in the summer, cold winter temperatures and high altitudes can hinder many types of plant growth. “The area’s plant palette is limited by its high elevation, but Bluegreen has spent over 10 years building Part of Summit Furniture’s Smoothie Collection, this contemporary chair features elongated lines and comfortable cushions.

Achieve a “mountain modern� aesthetic by sourcing natural materials such as stone, boulders and wood and designing and installing them in a contemporary way.
