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. If you have never slept like that before, it can be a life-changing experience. If that was not enough a Vi-Spring bed is guaranteed for life. It is no wonder Vi-Spring is the number one selling luxury bed in the world. Call or email today to see how inexpensive a Life-Changing sleep can be.

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. The spring thaw in Colorado is always a time of exciting change and growth. Not just in the physical transformation of the valleys and hills, as longer days coax color and fragrance from the winter soil, but also in the intriguing design events that signal spring has arrived in the Rockies. The first of several Luxe Interiors + Design-sponsored events kicked off in early April with the second annual Denver Designer Show House & Boutique benefiting The Children’s Hospital. This prestigious project virtually transformed the Cowperthwaite mansion, first designed in 1909 by Arthur Fisher of Fisher and Fisher Architects. It’s being offered for sale for the first time in more than 100 years, and some of Colorado’s most talented design professionals recreated spaces to honor this one-of-a-kind home. This show house was a truly unique opportunity to explore an architectural gem and be inspired by innovative design. You can find additional details at denvershowhouse.com. Speaking of inspiring and one-of-a-kind experiences, don’t forget to check out luxesource.com, one of the world’s largest directories of luxury resources. Thousands of beautiful images are just a click away, and profiles of the country’s top-tier design professionals and their portfolios are at your fingertips. We are also excited to announce our new social media address, facebook.com/luxemagazine, where you can find updates on all of the Luxe activities happening in your market. There is so much to celebrate both in design and nature with this wonderful season of spring, so enjoy the coming sun-filled days, and, as Walt Whitman said, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.”

Sincerely,

DANA L. MEACHAM Publisher

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

Housed at the Merchandise Mart’s Design Center, the 3,000-square-foot venue comprises the brand’s signature artisanal furnishings (such as the Bianca table, left) featuring intriguing textural finishes like reclaimed wood, antiqued mirror and concrete.

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.

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.

BALDWIN HARDWARE IS THE AMERICAN DREAM COME TRUE—AT LEAST, IT IS FOR SEVERIN FAYERMAN, A WWII SURVIVOR AND REFUGEE WHO ESTABLISHED THE COMPANY IN 1946. IT HAS SINCE SET THE BAR FOR STYLE, QUALITY AND DURABILITY, WITH SEVERAL OF ITS LINES STILL BEING MADE IN ITS READING, PENNSYLVANIA, FACTORY, WHERE THE PRIDE IN THE AIR IS PALPABLE, SAYS SENIOR PRODUCT MANAGER MARY NICHOLS.

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.

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. WHAT WAS THE EXPERIENCE LIKE P U T T I N G T H I S 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.

REVIEW

“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

T H I S I S YO U R S E V E N T H B O O K . H O W IS IT DIFFERENT FROM THE REST? 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.”

The combination of gold and white is so classic! I often use it in my designs when people want a neutral room.

PETAL PUSHER COMPANY Bernardaud RETAIL price available upon request

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.”

Inspired By Nature: “The beauty and palette of the surrounding landscape was much of the inspiration for Red Draw Ranch in Edwards (left). The owners had a strong vision of creating a mountain sanctuary with a winding trout stream dotted with small ponds and fields of wildflowers with mown paths for afternoons of fishing and strolling.”

Biggest Challenge: “When we started, there were thick patches of thistle and much disturbed ground, making weed control and timing of seeding critical. We were able to manage most if it through selection of more aggressive native grasses and biennials, and timing, timing, timing of seeding and planting.”

Design Elements: “We incorporated meadows, streams and the palette of existing plant communities such as aspen and blue spruce to create an extension of what existed. We used native grasses and seasonal wildflowers such as yarrow, lupine, gallardia and blue flax.”

Mission Possible: “My goal with all projects is to create and nurture viable environments that integrate humans and structures with the ecology of their surroundings. The primary goal on this project was to increase and create habitats for trout and elk especially. There was also thought put into increasing biodiversity of birds and beneficial insects, and creating a resilient ecology of climate-appropriate plant material that would mimic yet enhance the native vegetation.” evocatalyst.com

Constructive Recycling: “All rocks for the water feature were sourced from other construction projects being done in the area. Their waste was our gold.”

Public Eye: In an effort to integrate the arts into landscape and architecture, MOA has participated in hundreds of public art installations throughout Colorado.

Lofty Aspirations: The owners of a 35-acre Carbondale ranch (above), on a high plateau brimming with sagebrush and gambel oak, recruited Richard Camp Landscape Architecture of Carbondale to plan the entry sequence, outdoor spaces, ponds and gardens. The team faced certain limitations, however, as the site had little irrigation and the clients didn’t want perennial plants. Natural Solution: Drought-tolerant species were paired with diverse paving materials, such as wood, flagstone and colored concrete. RCLA delineated the spaces, including a fire pit, a garden and a gazebo, with stone walls. The result blends so well with its surroundings that it could have existed there for decades. rclandscape.net

STYLE MAKERS

A table and chairs set by contemporary furniture designer David Rasmussen lends an artful addition to his Carbondale residence. Opposite: Having recently discovered the Denver Art Museum for the ďŹ rst time, Rasmussen has a newfound appreciation for the array of artwork it holds.


An early stint in architecture wasn’t the right fit for David Rasmussen, but an understanding of space garnered during the experience nevertheless influences his true career calling of contemporary furniture design. “I picked

up the functional side of things,” he says, “how people use furniture.” The Carbondale-based craftsman learned the technical aspects of his field growing up in New Hampshire, where a high school woodworking class led to apprenticeships and then employment with artisan furnituremakers. Though his style is his own—Rasmussen’s Split Series includes side tables that have been split open and painted on top to resemble artichokes or cabbage heads—his love for mid-century modern style and designs by the likes of Charles and Ray Eames and George Nakashima is evident elsewhere. Rasmussen, who also creates sculpture and builds elaborate tree houses, custom-makes most of his pieces, and his first step comes down to that question of space once again. “It’s a discovery process,” he says. “I’ll go to a client’s house, see the space and the architecture, and use the context of their home as my starting point.” davidrasmussendesign.com; 970.510.0637

Next Big Buy: Some land where I could build a house and studio. Or a tree house in the area where I like to ski. It’s a town called Marble, named after the quarry there.

On My Nightstand: Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five, On Architecture by Vitruvius, a biography on Eames, Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, and Sarah Garlick’s Flakes, Jugs and Splitters: A Rock Climber’s Guide to Geology.

Current Project: I’ve been working on several pieces for my home, including a desk, a stereo cabinet and bookshelves. I feel like some of my best work is what I do for myself, because that’s when I get to do what I want without constraint.

Favorite Museum: I recently went to the Denver Art Museum for the first time. There was one painting from the 1400s or 1500s, and, from far away, I almost thought it was a Dalí. It was fantastical.

Ana Maria Hernando creates her colorful works of art from her Boulder studio. Opposite: Hernando incorporated petticoats and embroidered fabric in polymer resin into her 2010 installation La Montaùa Trae Barcas de Azucenas II (The Mountain Brings Us Boats Full of Lilies II) at Kemper at the Crossroads in Kansas City, Missouri—courtesy of Robischon Gallery in Denver.

Ana Maria Hernando’s Una Flor en el Mar features inks,

Six years ago, Ana Maria Hernando made the first of many trips to Mollomarca, a remote village of weavers in Peru, where her artistic eye was

drawn to the textiles—in particular the crocheted petticoats made by local women. “When the villagers would dance, I couldn’t help but notice the colorful scalloped edges showing out underneath their puffy skirts,” says Hernando, a native of Argentina who moved to the United States 25 years ago and now resides in Boulder. She ultimately purchased a petticoat from every woman in the village, and the collection eventually found its way into a series of Hernando’s art installations at places like the MCA Denver and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri. Moving deftly between painting and installation work, Hernando draws inspiration from nature and the richness of her experiences. “Everything in my life—my children, my work, my travels, every minute I am alive— becomes a part of my work.” anamariahernando.com; 303.859.0936

SKIRTING THE ISSUE

ANA MARIA HERNANDO Influence: My English tutor; I was just 4. She’d have me write a word down five times, and then she’d let me draw it. The drawing part was heaven; I knew then that I wanted to be an artist.

On My Nightstand: Piles of books and magazines—Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey, Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion and Spanish poetry books. I read like I work—lots of things at once.

Top Shops: There’s an area in Buenos Aires called Palermo Viejo where the colors and textures in the shops are so refreshing.

Favorite Getaway: Salk’awasi, the ancestral home of my teacher Don Américo Yábar, located in the mountains outside of Cusco, Peru. There are beautiful gardens and no electricity. It is my dreaming place.

Design Icon: James Turrell. His work at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas is like entering a temple.

The Architecture of Harry for James Hare.

Preservation, Inc. With historic buildings from the Gold Rush positioned alongside newer commissions like the Gio Ponti-designed Denver Art Museum, the mix of old and new allows for a rich but frail inventory. Enter in passionate advocates, like Hare, who hope to give these old buildings new purpose through the nonprofit organization. “There are many valuable lessons to be learned from how we did things in the past,” says Hare. “We don’t need all the bells and whistles to live a high-quality existence.” Whether restoring grand old mansions or the state capitol dome—the group’s most recent campaign—Hare is happiest making headway in all directions. “We can build a future with historic places,” he says. “And, when we take that approach, we’re also improving the quality of life in our communities.” shareinthecarecolorado.org; 303.893.4260

Current Obsession: I dream about one day being able to restore I.M. Pei’s Zeckendorf Plaza and repatriate the A.E. Nordenskiöld Collection of artifacts taken from Mesa Verde, which are now in Finland.

Why did you become a home builder?

How do you think your clients would characterize you?

I became a builder because I enjoy creating real tangible things that last. I embrace the entire process—from conceptual design to delivery of the home to the owner.

My clients would probably characterize me as a perfectionist. I double-check everything to ensure the job is done right.

Which projects have brought you the most satisfaction and why? I take great joy in designing and building homes that suit the owner’s needs. We bring enthusiasm and excitement to the building process.

FEATURES: McCrerey’s desire to create singular spaces at one with nature is evident in this master bedroom in Silverthorne that exudes relaxation through its Zenlike design and furnishings.

SPECIAL ADVERTIS ING SE CTION

FEATURES: This comfortable yet luxurious kitchen inside a home in Silverthorne makes perfect use of knotty adler cabinetry with glaze by Cardell, along with rustic, hand-distressed hickory flooring. The result is a room that is functional and picturesque.

FEATURES: Once again, McCrerey draws the outdoors inside, this time in a dynamic living room rich with ambience. The space, inside an estate in Keystone, combines color, warmth, texture and rich detail to create a true Colorado-style living environment.

So, despite the distance, he was the perfect fit for a Denver couple with East Coast roots that wanted to design a grand home in Cherry Creek. “We wanted the house to feel like it had been around for 75 years but have the modern features and lightness of a new home,” the husband explains. “In terms of architecture, David took our East Coast sensibilities and tailored them to Denver.” With consideration of the free eclecticism of early 20th-century homes in the area, English Arts and Crafts elements were combined with American influences. “The direction had a great deal to do with creating a light-filled house on a relatively modest-sized site,” says Neumann, who worked with Deborah Slaunwhite, project architect for his firm at the time. “Typically, these houses tend to ramble, with moments of symmetry and balance.

SERENE SETTING C O N T I N U E D F R O M PAG E 195

This house was designed in a cruciform, or pinwheel-shaped, plan in which most rooms occupy its full width and have light and views emitted from two or more directions.” The exteriors of the home fool the eye as to their age and scale. Thick, whitewashed red-brick walls combine with Vermont gray-green slate roofing and a series of gabled dormers, intended to reduce the apparent size of the house and make the east/west portion more dominant. Inside, the hub of the house is the highly functional open kitchen, off of which the mudroom, breakfast room, family room and dining room are hinged. “It’s where most of the activity in the house occurs and where we often entertain,” says the husband, a self-described foodie.

The dining room features a Rose Tarlow Melrose House table and Chippendale chairs from John Brooks in Denver. Lisa Oren Designs in Houston fashioned the draperies and sheers using Malabar fabric from The Shanahan Collection in Denver. Donghia’s handblown Venetian glass Bollicina lamp lights the room along with a chandelier from the owners’ collection.

Differentiation and definition between the kitchen, family room and breakfast room is achieved by a pattern of white-lacquered ceiling beams, and all open onto outdoor patios. Furnishings fell to Denver-based designer Melinda S. Douglas, of Douglas Associates, who had worked with the owners on their previous home in Denver. While that house had been smaller in scale, many of the items selected for it made the move to Cherry Creek. “Everything translated,” Douglas says. “The owners were so attuned to unassuming elegance that we were able to move the living room and master bedroom from one address to another.” Of course, new pieces—including antiques, upholstered soft goods, art and fine bedding—as well as custom finishes, were added to those rooms and others.

T H E Y O F T E N S A Y T H A T T W O H E A D S A R E B E T T E R T H A N O N E . And, as

this Boulder family discovered, several heads collaborating on one joint project can yield the best outcome. That concept came to define the process of give and take and mutual respect that resulted in the residence they envisioned while still reflecting the combined talents of the design team they assembled to build it. “The owners asked important questions regarding whose mind the space was going to reflect,” says architect David Barrett, founding principal of Barrett Studio Architects in Boulder, who worked hand in glove with the owners, landscape architect Luke Sanzone and builder Tim Harrington to shape the house, guest quarters, studio and barns on a 65acre horse ranch. “During the process, we became so integrated that it was impossible to tell who was leading and who was following. It became all about co-creation.” For starters, they reached a consensus on how the house would relate to the exposed site, determining that the low-slung arrangement of modern pavilions designed by Barrett shouldn’t dominate the landscape. Sanzone, who helmed the landscape aspects for Marpa Landscape Design Studio in Boulder, collaborated with the firm’s owner, Martin Mosko, to reshape the property to echo the mountains. “We sited the house so, when you look out, you don’t see anything but open space by day and the city lights in the evening,” says Mosko.

Meanwhile, materials were selected to reflect the rural structures of the surrounding farm properties and blend with the landscape. The combination of stacked stone, rusted Corten steel, recycled Wyoming snow-fencing used as siding and board-formed concrete (the latter inspired by the local slipform silos) allowed the three buildings to merge with the environment. Softening the architecture, a mix of mowed prairie grasses and drought-tolerant plants, including wooly Veronica, hug the curved walkway leading to the entrance. “The palette of low-spreading groundcovers will become a carpet,” says Sanzone. The ground shape, an important part of the overall design, “is meant to be like a journey so you can relax and lose yourself on the way to the front door,” Mosko says.

The journey continues inside, where the concrete wall that defines the garage and slowly rises on the exterior intersects the main house to delineate the foyer on one side and the kitchen on the other. In the living room, a Mondrian-inspired pattern of windowpanes captures the mountain views while a second concrete wall with a small cutout intentionally obscures the vistas. “We needed to root the house both inside and out so it didn’t feel like it was going to blow away,” says Barrett, referring to the forceful local winds. “The wall creates a cozy gathering space that turns its back on the elements and places the emphasis on the fireplace and warmth.” According to the builder, creating the board-formed concrete walls, which he likened to creating art forms, was no easy feat. “It’s not as simple as pouring concrete over wood,” says Harrington, partner in Harrington Stanko Construction in Boulder. “You have to treat the wood with different applications, do multiple concrete pours and get the mix just right every time.”

Steel reappears inside in the form of fireplace surrounds, windowpanes and a four-story circular stair that starts on the roof and completes on a subterranean level where it provides access to a tunnel that connects to the guest quarters. “We had to weld two steel tubes together and rent a building off site to stand the thing up so we could get the outside patina exact,” says Harrington, noting that an old sugar mill in Longmont had high enough ceilings so they could stand the staircase up, add the patina and let the natural sag fall vertically instead of horizontally. The continual piece of steel was dropped in place by two cranes.

Mindful of the owners’ desire to keep the living spaces welcoming but minimalist, Barrett Studio’s Nicole Delmage and Callan Childs “picked clean-lined upholstered pieces for the living and dining rooms, with fabrics that are all about fine textures and muted colors,” Delmage says. Complementary hues appear in the form of textiles, rugs and artifacts collected by the owners. “The project worked because it was done as one big soup,” concludes Mosko. “The clients drove the project, but, because the architecture, the landscape and the people were looked at as a whole, everything became one harmonious unit.” L

home—think textured-plaster walls, wood-framed windows and gray shiplap siding arranged in a diagonal pattern—was happily obliterated in favor of a contemporary, Zen-inspired dwelling. “My intention was to create a sanctuary that would feed my soul,” says McArthur, a longtime practitioner of yoga and meditation. “My feeling is that the golden years should be full of peace and happiness.” Considering that her previous home in Highland Park, Illinois, measured in at 13,000 square feet, McArthur’s modestly sized Aspen retreat embodies her present life’s mission: beautiful simplification. Architecturally speaking, the new structure comprises classic geometric shapes clad in white stucco and eco-friendly, bio-composite siding (respectively, the brightness and warmth of the finishes could be interpreted as modern tributes to Aspen’s renowned snow and forest), while the open-plan interiors showcase clean museumfinished walls, bleached white rift-sawn oak floors and a rich wood-paneled fireplace—the home’s dramatic centerpiece.

“The lines are simple, and, since we only used a few materials, there’s less visual distraction,” says architect Bob Mehall, president of the eponymous Snowmass Village firm, who worked with builder Keith Webster, principal of Keith M. Webster Construction in Aspen. Not discounting, of course, the possibility that, in the context of such rustic terrain, where timber-heavy cabins prevail, the home’s very existence as a rare contemporary jewel is itself a curious diversion.

The home’s Japanese Zen garden, a natural extension of McArthur’s quest for peace and simplicity, is another unusual departure from the local flavor—but only to a certain extent. “By design, Japanese gardens bring the larger landscape into a smaller footprint,” explains landscape architect Jennifer Dolecki-Smith, of Escape Garden Design in Aspen. To reference the region’s emblematic mountains and valleys, Dolecki-Smith incorporated a few majestic boulders, while the sand component is a reflection of the mountain lakes and streams.

and pollution from the road at bay, and the distinctive shapes of the twisting white pine and sweeping globosa spruce gracefully portray the wind. “All of these elements give this symbolic landscape a gentle sense of movement and an awareness of the passage of time,” she says. Such introspective ruminations also manifest in the interiors. The home’s Far East-inspired color palette, for example, embodies such Asian iconography as plum blossoms (represented by the lavender and plum accent pillows), Japanese cloths (actual vintage obis with a moss-green bonsai pattern drape over the living room club chairs) and ornamental Buddhist temples (gold touches imbue the rugs, upholstery and artwork). A gilded frame over the fireplace, for example, showcases quiet Balinese prayers written on palm leaves; interestingly, it also doubles as a television cover. “There’s a yin-yang, feminine-masculine quality to the décor,” says designer Kathy Hansel, owner of K.B. Hansel Interiors in Glenwood Springs. “But since the ambiance is tranquil, I think the yin—the female—prevails here.”

The home’s heftier antique pieces—a lacquered Chinese console under the stairs, a Korean altar table in the powder room (altered, no pun intended, for plumbing) and the living room’s adjustable, wooden coffee table (a repurposed Japanese shoji door)—help anchor the softness of the spaces. It could be that the home’s halcyon design achieves its harmonious vibe by embracing, of all surprising things, elements of dissent. After all, the modern architecture challenges its rustic setting; the commanding hearth heats up the serene décor; and the Japanese garden, planted with the region’s finery, transcends time and place, not just through its meditative intent, but also by virtue of its peculiar, high-altitude nook in a forest of Aspen trees.

STEP IT UP The staircase’s white oak flooring and glass railing set an airy tone—thanks also to the skylight overhead—for the rest of the house. “It’s one of my favorite parts of the design,” says Mehall.

But Alix Kogan, owner of Kogan Builders in Durango, has noticed an accompanying trend. “In the last five years, there’s been a move to a more contemporary mountain expression,” he says. “It’s a mix of streamlined materials, clean trim and lots of glass, along with some more rustic elements.” The stone-and-glass house nestled on a small plateau near Durango that Kogan and company designed and built for a retiring dean of engineering suits this theory to a tee, quite literally. Overlooking a valley where elk migrate past and wild turkey roam, the house extends outward with a T-shaped form—the best way for the design team to maximize the 270-degree lake-and-mountain panoramas. “The big thing was to capture the views,” the homeowner says. “Originally I wanted to build something curving around the profile of the hill. But, when push came to shove, it just didn’t work.”

The house was also designed with an inside-out feel in mind, taking advantage of southern Colorado’s mild climate with a covered outdoor living room surrounding a tall fireplace. “It’s not something I particularly asked for, but the way the house is laid out, it became a perfect place for it,” the homeowner adds. “Now, I do have to say that I love it.” Coincidentally, the client was overseeing the design and construction of a highly energy efficient LEED-rated university building at the time his own house was being built, so the latter became a proving ground for some of the same sustainable principles. Thanks to ample insulation, solar panels, an Energy Recovery Ventilation system, heat pumps, water conservation products and other design elements, it meets the most stringent Built Green Colorado standards and is about 44 percent more energy efficient than a house built to code. The home’s most architecturally dramatic space is its double-height great room in the back, which takes advantage of floor-to-ceiling glass to accentuate views of the landscape. Because it’s tilted slightly outward, the glass façade takes a

Large overhangs off the great room, supported by slanted columns running parallel to the glass, help reduce glare and are outfitted with photovoltaic solar panels. The great room interior is also clad in the same locally quarried stone as the exterior, continuing the inside-outside theme as well as the mountain lodge feel. Ceilings are covered in select pine and floors in distressed white oak. Yet contemporary elements, from an iridescent glass-tile backsplash to exposed portions of the steel-frame structure, add modern yin to the mountain lodge yang. Most dramatic may be a floating staircase situated against a glass wall.

“It was designed to keep a floating effect so you could look through the staircase to the views beyond,” Kogan says. In close collaboration with the owner, Kogan oversaw the entire project, including custom cabinetry and even furniture, enabling a true synthesis of the creative process. In the master bedroom, for example, a platform bed with a custom headboard and floating nightstands answers to the owner’s vision. Kogan designed an alcove around the bed to emphasize its presence. The design segregates the home into public and private spaces. While the ground floor is mostly occupied by the common areas—a great room, dining room and kitchen—the master suite provides a retreat that feels Zen-inspired in

To this end, the master bath is clad in travertine and features a teak shower bench and heated towel rack. “I think the intent was always to have a warm mountain-contemporary home,” Kogan says. “You tend to mimic some of the traditional form, but it’s articulated in a cleaner way. We had a lot of back and forth and collaboratively came up with the particular look and feel. It’s about taking all those different images in your mind and incorporating that into a program specific for client and site. That’s our passion.” 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.

Low-maintenance plant material complements the design of the terrace without overpowering the surrounding views.

Outdoor area rugs provide comfort underfoot, as well as a way to delineate the boundaries of an outdoor room.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING W I T H N E A R - P E RFECT CONDITIONS, IT’S NO WONDER THAT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIANS HAVE QUITE L I T E R A L LY FOU ND A WAY TO BLUR THE LINES BETWEEN THE INDOORS AND OUT.

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.


DESIGN MINDED

Dress up the outdoors with original artwork atop copper or all-weather canvas for the complete decorated feeling of an interior living room.

Potted flowers and plants serve as a living accessory to an outdoor room and are best incorporated early on in the design plan.

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. Wisdom Crushed Mood Glass, price available upon request; jeffreycourt.com

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.

a database of plants that thrive under these conditions,” Yaw says. Some of Yaw’s favorites include bergenia, brunnera, blue avena and Karl Foerster, all of which, in keeping with Bluegreen’s environmental mission, are perennial plants.

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