Notes from Hayley Miner about Saatchi Art’s collaboration with Trip Haenisch Art Advisor Hayley Miner shares the inspiration and process behind building the Lloydcrest collection. From the initial meeting with designer Trip Haenisch, it was clear that three main concepts would guide the direction for the art at Lloydcrest: the contemporary architecture of the house, the remarkable location perched high above Los Angeles with panoramic city and ocean views, and Trip’s design concept and the flow of the interior spaces he created. The palette and overall direction of the interior elements were refined, airy, and neutral with earth tones and rich woods to complement the natural grey stone and board-formed concrete walls. The furniture boards reflected Trip’s selection of streamlined and elegant Italian furnishings from iconic houses like Molteni, Poltrona Frau and Walter Knoll, and we at Saatchi Art interpreted his vision for the art by adding a splash of color and a sense of California airiness to this highly customized home. With all these concepts in mind, we set out to curate a collection of vibrant contemporary artworks for Lloydcrest that included paintings, sculpture and photography, more than 40 works in total. Many of the paintings and sculptures we selected in close collaboration with Trip

are from our global pool of talent, including works by artists from Canada, Germany, the Netherlands and Poland. We also included some of our stellar local artists’ work to emphasize the California vibe that complements the unforced, low-key elegance of the interiors so well. The house has a distinct modern aesthetic, which is also the perfect backdrop for some dynamic and conceptually strong works from Saatchi Art’s collection of photographers. Every step of the art selection process was guided by Trip’s extraordinary eye for sophisticated spaces and inspired by the remarkable overall design of the house. When the final installation was complete, the structure, the interior elements, the landscape and the art flowed seamlessly together. The clean lines of the modern residence were enhanced with visually striking, exuberant art while other selections added a sense of warmth and relaxed elegance.

Interview with Trip Haenisch about the Lloydcrest Project We sat down with Trip Haenisch to learn more about his process for designing the Lloydcrest Estate and his overall philosophy when it comes to interior design. How did the project come about? I was hired initially to do all the interior architecture. As the project moved along I was asked to do the interiors and help with the artwork. This is the largest space you’ve ever designed. How do you typically begin a project? It isn’t the largest in terms of square footage but the scale of the rooms are definitely the most impressive. Most projects are started by studying the existing or planned architecture then the interior architecture and then – and only then – do we move to furniture, carpets, and art. In this case, the house was built from scratch. What is your design process when tackling a project from the ground up? Is the process different than when you are working with a pre-existing space? It’s the same in the sense that I try to get the shell of the house perfect (all the interior materials – flooring, counters, cabinetry) before planning the furniture. It’s very difficult to disguise bad interior architecture with nice furniture. It never looks right. When do you start to think about art within your design? Is it part of your initial process or do you typically introduce art once a concept is set? Art is never really part of the initial process unless clients already have beautiful existing art that we know needs to be integrated. Usually it comes towards the end of the design process. A lot of the time we will hold a space for art until the right piece can be found and afforded. This may be well after the project has wrapped. What is the typical process for finding artwork for projects, and how did working with Hayley Miner as your art advisor change the experience? I usually try to expose my clients to different artists that I think they might like. If they do, we then try to find a great example of that artist’s work to purchase. Hayley was great because she exposed me to great emerging artists represented by Saatchi Art that I was not aware of.

There are a lot of sculptures incorporated into the Lloydcrest project. Are you personally a sculpture lover? I believe art can come in many forms. It doesn’t just have to be something you hang on a wall. It can be sculptural art or it can be functional art like furniture. It can also be accessories in bronze or ceramic. What’s the number one rule you follow when picking art for a space? The number one rule is that the client loves it. In a home the size of the Lloydcrest Estate the scale of the pieces became important. Small pieces in some instances would not work. I like edgy art but a lot of clients won’t go there. Do you buy art for yourself? I’ve been collecting for over 30 years. My walls are full. But I just buy what I love. I have very expensive pieces but some of my favorite things cost very little. I love photography. Herb Ritts was a friend and I learned a lot from him. Contemporary large-scale color photography is very exciting to work with. With minimalist furniture in muted colors, what was the guiding design scheme for the Lloydcrest project? I didn’t want to take away from the architecture which is stunning. The pops of color were supposed to come from the art. What do you think is the most important design rule when adding art to an interior? Are there any common mistakes that you see? It’s subjective so I see things as tasteful or not but for me the biggest mistake is not following your gut, being fearful. That is why so many art collections look the same. People buy what their friends have. They are afraid to move out of their comfort zone or they only buy “name” pieces because in their minds price ensures quality which is not necessarily true in my opinion. I mean, I’ve seen bad Picasso’s, believe it or not.
