From Les Arts de la Table to L’Art de Vivre The Refined Art of Living with THG When in the presence of remarkably well-crafted products, a euphoric feeling immediately overtakes the senses. A powerful sensation that’s substantial yet sensual, palpable yet difficult to define. The beauty, the craftsmanship, the sophistication – the qualities of these immaculate objects seem to transcend the everyday world, possessing a unique inner glow. A true je ne sais quoi. Few brands embody these traits like Lalique, DAUM, Baccarat, Christofle and Manufacture de Monaco; world-renowned ateliers with rich histories rooted in masterful and meticulous craftsmanship. These recognized brands leave no detail overlooked, creating products of the highest quality and splendor for the most discerning tastes. In the decorative hardware world, only one other company brings this same quality and sensuality to the bath: THG-Paris®. Handcrafting exquisite faucets and accessories to the highest possible standards, THG’s artisans tool, cast, mold and finish each product using celebrated techniques passed down through generations. Because of this fine legacy, THG is constantly on the search for ways to design products that resonate with their audience while communicating their distinctly understated elegance and sophistication. Oftentimes, THG’s collaborations begin with an idea from one of these distinguished brands. An exceptional detail, embellishment or design that inspires THG to craft it into a unique collection – and experience – for the home and bath. THG turns to these world class brands to help make their inspired creations, and in turn, these brands entrust THG with their reputations because they know only THG is capable of meeting their extraordinary standards. Through luxury collaboration, THG has perfected the refined art of living – bringing opulence and artistry to fine baths everywhere.

Adorned with intricate lotus leaves and delicate palmettes, THG’s Malmaison translates this iconic Christofle pattern into pure artistry for the bath. Christofle, the premier designer of French silver and decorative arts in jewelry, tableware and home accents, entrusts two of their most iconic patterns to THG.

THESE EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH: INTERARCHITECURAL PRODUCTS, LLC 209 KALAMATH, NUMBER 11 DENVER, CO 80223 303.232.5700 INTERARCHITECTURAL.COM


A bold work of artistry, Rose’s delicate DAUM crystal handles offer beautiful variations in color, with no two alike and each piece signed.

A finer example of THG’s meticulous crafting capabilities could not be better translated than with THG’s interpretation of Manufacture de Monaco’s iconic Alhambra pattern. Monte Carlo incorporates 24 karat gold, porcelain and Swarovski® crystals to create this impeccable design for the bath.

With the official title of “Purveyor by the appointment of His Serene Highness the Prince of Monaco,” two new collections by THG were created in collaboration with the esteemed porcelain house Manufacture de Monaco.

DAUM, the legendary French art crystal atelier celebrated for its mastery of the pâte-deverre technique, uses a lost-wax method to make a mold for the sculptural elements incorporated into THG’s Rose.

The magic of Lalique crystal combines with the artistry of THG to create Dahlia, a seductive new design modeled after the famous Dahlia beauty box created by René Lalique in 1931.

Bearing the distinctive Baccarat imprint, Pétale de Cristal offers beautiful, deep colors in opulent crystal. Each translucent, lotus flower-shaped handle becomes a true bathroom jewel that could only be conceived by THG.

For more than a decade, THG has collaborated with Lalique, a brand internationally recognized for creating crystal objects d’art, jewelry and beautiful porcelain.

Baccarat is internationally renowned for their unparalleled quality, clarity and intense colors in crystal, and THG has translated this mastery flawlessly in numerous collaborations. Both THG and Baccarat have been awarded the prestigious EPV Quality Label, illustrating that THG’s brand and standards are in perfect symmetry with the crystal atelier.

EDITORâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S LETTER

Five years into the new millennium, a small group of impassioned trailblazers set out to conquer design across the country. No easy feat for this band of outsiders. We plunged ourselves into design markets, from Texas and Chicago to Los Angeles, Miami and New York. Editors were deployed to scout projects; stylists were tweaking and polishing; architectural photographers snapping. Whew! We were productive, launching markets, publishing projects and networking.

On behalf of the editorial team, we hope that you enjoy this celebratory issue of Luxe Interiors + Design. On to another exciting decade aheadâ&#x20AC;Ś

memo A M Y M CC R A K E N PUBLISHER

With the holidays upon us, the Luxe Interiors + Design Colorado team would like to thank everyone who worked hard to help create some truly incredibly events. This past year we were involved in over 100 events, including, most recently, Elegant Entertaining, Flight to Luxury and the Denver Designer Show House. In September, Flight to Luxury raised over $1 million in one night to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. Open in September and October, the Denver Designer Show House involved dozens of designers and showrooms who donated their time, products and services to help us, along with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, to raise more than $100,000 for the Children’s Hospital Colorado. When I look around at our Luxe family, our readers, our advertisers, our partners, our friends and all of the amazing individuals we’ve met this year, I realize just how lucky we are to be able to do what we do. We hope your holidays are filled with love and happiness. Enjoy the issue!

CONTRIBUTORS

BEHIND THE SCENES GET TO KNOW A FEW OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS THEY TALK ALL THINGS DESIGN. PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

TERRI SAPIENZA

Writer / Washington, D.C. If I had a spare $20,000… I would use the money for a down payment on a small beach cottage. Favorite Luxe interview? My conversation with Arizona- and Chicago-based designer Kim Scodro about her own house was a total treat. She was so genuine and funny, plus very knowledgeable about design. I could have talked to her for hours—I think I did! What is your biggest creative influence? Travel. Stepping away from what I see and do everyday opens my eyes and reawakens my senses in ways that are always meaningful and necessary. Most exciting thing happening in design today? I’m always motivated by people who have the courage to take risks in order to do or create something they believe in. Whatever it is they do, it’s usually done with such passion that it ends up making a lot of other people happy, too. Photographer / New York

What’s intriguing you now in the world of photography? The ergonomics of professional and consumer cameras coming out onto the market. I think that there needs to be more thought that goes into them beyond the science and technology, such as how they can be more thoughtfully designed tools that are functional, fluid and efficient. If you could shoot anywhere in the U.S., where would it be? Buffalo, New York, in the summertime. It has incredible architecture from such amazing talents as Frank Lloyd Wright and Eliel Saarinen that I would love to shoot. I would also like to wander past all the old industrial buildings and dream up what I could turn them into. What type of architecture inspires you the most? There are so many fresh designers that are creating interesting architecture and interiors in Barcelona while still holding true to the history and authenticity of what makes the city what it is. It’s always a tough balance and they are doing a fine job at it.

COM4_Contributors_094.indd 102

CLAUDIA URIBE

Photographer / Miami

If I could photograph anything… It would be the vanishing tribes of the world. What inspires you? I love midcentury modern, with a little wabi-sabi thrown in for its simplicity and use of natural objects and processes. Top three items on your design wish list: I would love to own a Serge Mouille lamp, a throw by Loro Piana or an Easy chair by Hans J. Wegner. Most memorable Luxe shoot? I really like working on the stories for the Radar section. The jewelry shoot I did last year turned out gorgeous!

TARYN BICKLEY Writer / Chicago

Most memorable Luxe interviews? Christiane Lemieux, founder of DwellStudio, and New York artist Jenna SnyderPhillips, whose work I would love to hang in my powder room someday. Writer who has deeply influenced you? Helen Fielding. Her early columns in The Independent as fictional Bridget Jones were incredible; her single thirty-something diatribe is so profound and perfect that I still laugh out loud and agree, even as a smug married woman. What do you enjoy most about design? Nothing makes me happier than sitting in a hotel room by London-based Firmdale Hotels. Co-owner Kit Kemp’s mix of prints and textures, and the play of old and new, is completely inspiring. Someday, I hope to rehab a Chicago brownstone with all these compounding lyrical elements.

RADAR / BIG IDEAS

DEFINING MOMENTS OVER THE COURSE OF A DECADE, DESIGN TRENDS DEVELOP AND SWAY THE MANNER IN WHICH WE LIVE. AS LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN CELEBRATES ITS 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY, WE LOOK BACK AT THE FORCES THAT TOOK HOLD AND HELPED FASHION THE AMERICAN DESIGN LANDSCAPE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS AND ARLYN HERNANDEZ

HONEST ARCHITECTURE MATERIAL PALETTES

Architecture has always been the piece of the design puzzle that serves as the foundation for any next-level home and shapes how it is lived in. Contemporary elements (think glass and steel) have long been go-to mediums in the construction world for sleek façades, but honest, stripped-down materials—concrete, salvaged wood, rammed earth—are the new heroes of high-end residential architecture.

“The effect of board-formed concrete is stunning because it is typically thought of as functional with no aesthetic giveback. I love the idea of taking a temporal material like wood and freezing it in time.”

“SIMPLE, NATURAL MATERIALS IN ARCHITECTURE ARE AMONG THE MOST LUXURIOUS AND CONNECT US TO SOMETHING LARGER THAN OURSELVES.” -KEVIN LICHTEN ARCHITECT AND PARTNER, LICHTEN CRAIG ARCHITECTURE + INTERIORS

PHOTO: BILL TIMMERMAN.

-BLAZE MAKOID ARCHITECT, BLAZE MAKOID ARCHITECTURE

Photo: Arizona-based architect Wendell Burnette conceived this structural tour de force, meticulously erected by The Construction Zone in Scottsdale. The home's exterior features rammed-earth walls and a Cor-Ten steel roof, and took nearly a decade to complete.

COM_LX3_Radar_BigIdeas_108-112.indd 108

9/18/15 2:33 PM


RADAR / BIG IDEAS

“I’D CALL THIS PAST 10 YEARS ‘THE DECADE OF REDISCOVERY.’ MIDCENTURY MODERN IS ALIVE AND WELL, AND I THINK IT IS A PRODUCT OF LOOKING BACK TO A PERIOD WHEN AMERICA APPEARED TO BE STRONG AND HAPPY. BUT I PERSONALLY LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE 1960S—DAVID HICKS, ANGELO DONGHIA, PACO RABANNE.”

BACK to the FUTURE METALLICS / RETRO

What once was old is most certainly new again, as designers are paying homage to past decades and ushering in nostalgic silhouettes and retro finishes into modern day. Shag rugs, brass accents and chrome detailing are at home with coveted pieces by Saarinen, van der Rohe and Baughman. Vintage-meets-modern is the name of the game for the new luxury interior.

-JOHN IKE ARCHITECT AND PARTNER, IKE KLIGERMAN BARKLEY

“Metallics are the new neutral. They're the new transitional look; not modern, not traditional.”

“I’M OBSESSED WITH ’70S DESIGN. MY CHILDHOOD HOME WAS FILLED WITH CHROME, GLASS…THAT WHOLE HALSTONESQUE APPROACH. DESIGN IN THAT DECADE WAS GLAMOROUS, IMAGINATIVE AND THOROUGHLY MODERN. IT WASN’T THE LEAST BIT DERIVATIVE LIKE THE DECADE THAT FOLLOWED.” -DARA CAPONIGRO CREATIVE DIRECTOR, SCHUMACHER

-SUSAN FELDMAN COFOUNDER, ONE KINGS LANE

What is it that makes an interior worthy of a second glance? Fearlessness. The last decade has come to be defined as one that has seen a resurgence in daring interiors; ones built around explosions of color, pattern on pattern, one-of-a-kind furnishings, rugs and artifacts. These design elements lend personal narratives to the spaces they inhabit, infusing a unique, spirited thumbprint.

DESIGN gets PERSONAL

“We live in a world today where what was private is now public. The home has become another way for individuals to express themselves and no one wants their house to look like their friend’s.”

RADAR / FASHION STATEMENT

OFF THE RUNWAY

STRADDLING THE WORLDS OF INTERIORS AND FASHION, NEW YORK INTERIOR DESIGNER RYAN KORBAN EXPLAINS THE INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROBYN TWOMEY

COM4_RadarRyanKorban_114.indd 114

For many interior designers, working with a fashion brand is the ultimate feat—an opportunity to flex creative muscles not often sculpted in the shelter realm. But for interior designer Ryan Korban, fashion is where he first cut his design teeth. “In a sense, fashion was my first client,” he explains of his early days designing in retail. “It was my job to design around it yet not interrupt it.” The self-taught designer quickly turned industry heads with one übercool space after another and his modern-romantic aesthetic soon caught the eye of one famed fashion designer in particular: Alexander Wang. “It’s such an easy working relationship,” says Korban, who has become synonymous with Wang for their wildly successful collaborations over the past 10 years—from his many storefronts to his own home. “I think the best part of our collective work is that we both consistently strive for bigger and better in every project we undertake.” This commitment to greatness has resulted in a deeper understanding for Korban on the effects each industry has on the

other. “It’s always been important that I understand fashion in order to create interiors where fashion can thrive,” says the designer. “I think people are really starting to grasp the notion that a space can be put together in the same way an outfit is selected.” To that point, fashion houses are now looking to interiors, as “architecture and furniture silhouettes are proving to be huge influences for their brand,” expounds Korban. He further asserts, “designers whose aesthetics are based in minimalism—Jil Sander, Céline, Balenciaga—often turn to interior structures as a source of research.” And though runway collections appear to move at light speed in comparison to interior debuts, the fashion industry is largely dependent on the design world to support their lines. “These days you need to have a well-defined environment to act as an extension of the lifestyle you are selling,” states Korban. Suffice it to say, the synergy between fashion and interiors seems to be an ever-growing one that will continue to elevate each to the next level.

NAMES TO KNOW

 DAVID

JOHN DICK & KRISTA SCHROCK Los Angeles | discinteriors.com

WHY WE LOVE THEM: This design duo conceives spaces that reflect their SoCal surroundings—calm, refined and textured. Each space has a clear point of view, utilizing the natural materials and of-the-earth color palettes they’ve become known for.

LUXE PRESENTS THE TALENTED FRESH DESIGNERS WHO ARE COMMANDING OUR ATTENTION.

In their words: “Always looking to nature as inspiration, we fantasize about designing an inn in Big Sur high on a cliff with views of the treetops and the ocean. We love the idea of creating interiors that age well over time, and that are united with nature.”

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY LACY MORRIS

CATHERINE KWONG

San Francisco | catherinekwong.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Recognized for her use

of strong graphic elements and a rich color palette, Catherine Kwong’s interiors are elegant, tailored and, though modern and glamorous, still distinctly livable.

▲ FRANCES

MERRILL

Los Angeles | reathdesign.com

WHY WE LOVE HER: Frances Merrill’s designs are a study in sophistication without being too stuffy. Her interiors are marked with a bit of East Coast prep blended seamlessly with a laid-back California vibe, all characterized with layered textures and lively color. In her words: “My dream project would be to renovate the Topanga Ranch Motel. It is a cottage-style building built in the 1920s to house the road workers expanding the Pacific Coast Highway. It operated as a motel until the state bought it in 2001 and has been empty ever since. I would love to restore it into a 1930s/’40s California-style home, like a location from a Raymond Chandler novel.”

MEGAN WINTERS ‹

Chicago | meganwinters.com

WHY WE LOVE HER: Grounded in an element of high style, Megan Winters layers bold color palettes with elegant yet glamorous and edgy furnishings. Her fearless compositions are often characterized by whimsical nods and a flawless mix of vintage and modern. In her words: “The best advice I have ever received is to live life to the fullest, work hard, follow your passion and always, without exception and regardless of cost, do the right thing. In business and life there are absolutes in integrity. Don’t ever let anyone convince you otherwise.”

▲ BRIAN

PAQUETTE

Seattle | brianpaquetteinteriors.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Embracing all things outdoors, Brian Paquette’s aesthetic encompasses what the Pacific Northwest is all about: a sense of adventure. His designs utilize lots of layering, clean lines and a thoughtful use of organic color. In his words: “I am constantly inspired by the work of others in the industry, whether that be interior designers, furniture and lighting designers, textile makers, artists, ceramicists or photographers. I am only as good as the people I surround myself with and there is some really thoughtful and next-level work being done here in Seattle.”

DICK & SCHROCK PHOTO: D. GILBERT. MERRILL PHOTO: ANDRE VIPPOLIS. PAQUETTE PHOTO: BELATHEE. WINTERS PHOTO: WERNER STRAUBE. KWONG PHOTO: BESS FRIDAY.

In her words: “My biggest design complaint is when there are too many statement pieces crowded into one space; it starts to dilute the effect. It’s all about layering in the elements to speak to each other in a cohesive way so that the interiors maintain a sense of balance.”

 ANDEE

HESS

Portland | osmosedesign.com

WHY WE LOVE HER: From sleek, minimal and modern to rustic and relaxed with lots of natural woods, Andee Hess’ designs are hard to pin down. This varied aesthetic is something she equates to design being like storytelling, and that not everyone’s stories are the same. In her words: “I like to take on projects that pose new challenges; there is always so much to investigate and discover. However, residential work is always fascinating to me, as I’m entering someone else’s world and, with that, all of their expectations.”

PATRICK MELE

New York | patrickmele.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Patrick Mele’s bold use of graphic color and prints has earned him an avid following. Both relaxed and refined, his rooms feel as if they could have always been there, loved and lived-in.

PALOMA CONTRERAS 

Houston | palomacontreras.com

In his words: “Whether it’s during trips abroad, through books or articles I read or from those that have come before me, there are individuals whose talent, curiosity and contribution astound me. This is what drives me forward.”

WHY WE LOVE HER: Keeping with tradition,

Paloma Contreras seeks out classic silhouettes and timeless pieces, mixing them in a modern arrangement. Though polished and refined, expect pops of color with a bit of glam. In her words: “I would love to design a winery or residence in Napa Valley—one of my favorite places in the world. It embodies effortless, chic American style; laid-back but sophisticated, pared down yet completely luxurious. There’s a great balance of the two worlds unlike anything I have experienced anywhere else.”

 CALEB

ANDERSON

New York | calebandersondesign.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: One to take risks, Caleb Anderson’s creations

are eclectic and curious yet polished, and often his spaces have an element of surprise or a moment of the avant-garde. In his words: “I would love to restore a large historic house with solid bones and interesting architecture. I would curate the rooms with antiques and modern elements and create a magnificent garden. I am fascinated not just for these homes’ architectural characteristics, but also for the intrigue of their history.”

COM_LX4_Radar_FreshFaces_116-118.indd 118

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Andrew Brown creates spaces that have history and that feel well-traveled and collected with texture and depth. With a lean toward clean lines in a classic, high-contrast color palette, expect a seamless interweaving of styles and eras in his designs—old and new, masculine and feminine, simple and ornate. In his words: “I’m very curious by nature and am always intrigued by the history behind things. I travel a lot, which keeps my eyes open to new possibilities. In design, I try to look at everything in a different way—my mind is always thinking in terms of how to reinterpret the objects that I see that inspire me.”

RADAR / FUTURE OF DESIGN Stephen Burks, of Stephen Burks Man Made, in his new Brooklyn-based design studio. He’s currently working on collections for Dedon, Parachilna and Roche Bobois, as well as his brand’s participation in this year’s Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture in China and The Armory Show in New York for 2016.

WORLD AFFAIRS

For decades, international design has almost exclusively referenced a European sensibility. But I’m interested in a more inclusive approach that considers other world cultures. In the early days of my career, I looked at travel as purely for inspiration. Once I began visiting the so-called more exotic regions of the world and creating with the people there, however, travel grew to be just as important an aspect of my designs as sketching. Going to places like Colombia, the Philippines and Senegal has become an inextricable part of my process and life. My work with various artisan groups started when I was sought out by nonprofits like Aid To Artisans and Artesanías de Colombia to be a design consultant. But as I started to understand

MASTER OF THE HANDCRAFTED-INDUSTRIAL MIX, STEPHEN BURKS TALKS AUTHENTICITY, GLOBAL CULTURES AND THE FUTURE OF DESIGN. AS TOLD TO JESSE BRATTER / PHOTOGRAPHY BY NOAH KALINA

the role that commerce could play in benefitting these craftsmen, my manufacturing partners and I began to seek them out. I found my Senegalese basket-weaving artisans, for example, at a street fair in New York City’s West Village, and my long-term relationship with them has now included several collaborative trips to Africa to produce the Single and Triple Basket lamps and Material Composition 3 totem. This desire to return to handmade objects is becoming more widespread, and I believe that luxury in the 21st century will be defined by more appropriate expressions of authentic craftsmanship. However, as luxury brands move into new markets, they’re increasingly introduced to new interpretations of what that

means, and of technique and luxury itself. Authenticity shouldn’t be thought of as a marketing ingredient that can just be added to a production formula; it’s about being true to the culture of the product’s origin. But there are always clever ways to combine the hand with industry; in fact, it’s the coming together of industrial manufacturing and handmade craftsmanship, two seemingly disparate modes of production, that is inherently contemporary and innovative. And with this new partnership, the role of designer is shifting, as he or she is becoming a collaborator for change. The designer of the future will be at the center of every discussion of new ideas and social progress.

#INSTACRUSH @matthewhahnel

WHO: World traveler and nature lover Matthew Hahnel, a photographer that finds his inspiration in the natural world. With diverse shots of rugged mountains, coastal beaches and meandering rivers (just to name a few) making up his feed, Hahnel captures the unpredictable personality of the great outdoors. WHAT: Each exploration is expertly captured— whether it’s a vast desert with rocky features protruding hundreds of feet in the air or a dense, green forest filled with boundless trees. Expect to find some around-the-world shots—from Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park to Iceland’s Glacier Lagoon. WHY: Because Hahnel enjoys every moment of his journey, and you will, too; his striking landscapes are romantic and dreamlike.

COLLABORATION:

ROCHE BOBOIS

There’s no denying Sacha Lakic’s design roots: The sexy curves and daredevil lines of the Paris-based talent’s furniture speak to his aesthetic sensibilities as loudly as the idling of the engines of the Yamaha-powered motorcycles he used to design. And his most recent collaboration with Italian furniture giant Roche Bobois is more of the same—as illustrated by the Aircell fauteuils below—with the edgy silhouettes of chairs and sofas that would look equally as comfortable with a cashmere throw or a leather jacket draped over their arms. roche-bobois.com

BLUEPRINT DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS Denver’s cultural scene has gotten a serious makeover recently courtesy of new additions to both the Denver Art Museum and Denver Botanic Gardens. While Roth Sheppard Architects’ DAM administrative building (below) has helped reshape the Golden Triangle, the gardens’ innovative, sci-fi-inspired Science Pyramid (above) has broken the mold altogether, opening the community up to the nearly boundary-less world of architecture. The building, constructed to showcase the center’s research activities and interactive educational department, was designed by Denver’s Burkett Design and Studio NYL. Our favorite feature? The hexagonalshaped portholes featuring electrochromic glass that changes opacity, allowing the staff to control the interiors’ access to natural sunlight. botanicgardens.org

DATE BOOK KATHERINE DUPPS

When creative visionary Katherine Dupps co-founded the textile studio Katherine Rally, she did so with the intention of crafting fabrics that would retain the essence of the Balinese culture she loves so much, textiles capable of conjuring up a bit of wanderlust with one glance. Sold by the yard or as ready-made pillows, her fabrics are used across the globe in some of the most notable interior designers’ projects, where whimsical suzanis and playful peacock prints act as standout standbys. But, while she’s a woman of many talents—interior designer, mother, globetrotter and textile maven—Dupps was willing to add one more role to her list just for us: travel consultant. No stranger to itineraries, Dupps creates an Aspen to-do list as detailed as her handmade fabrics. Read below for her favorite spots in the city. katherinerally.com

9 a.m. Time for a quinoa breakfast bowl and latte at Peach’s Corner Café. The food and service there are amazing, not to mention it carries incredible art from local artists, including my favorite, Karl Wolfgang. Head Chef David Roth always keeps the menu interesting, so be sure to check out the daily specials listed on adorable brown butcher paper. 10 a.m. All of the shopping and action is downtown, so I like to start my excursions at Paris Underground Antiques. Owner Laura Blocker has one of the best selections of Georges Pelletier 1970s ceramic lamps. I am obsessed with ceramics and lighting, and his are absolute works of art. The girls at the shop will even ship your purchases home for you. 1 p.m. Stop by 520 Grill on East Cooper Avenue. Chef and owner Troy

Selby makes the most delicious fi sh tacos and my personal favorite: the ahi tuna, kale and quinoa salad. 2:30 p.m. A visit to Aspen would not be complete without a trip to the John Denver Sanctuary on the banks of the Roaring Fork River. It’s really a living garden and a tribute to someone who loved and understood the beauty of Colorado, specifically Aspen. I love to incorporate the sanctuary on my morning runs. It just gives me goose bumps to see all of the people enjoying such a special place. 3:30 p.m. One more stop before dinner and drinks: the Aspen Art Museum. It is worth going to for its controversial architecture and rotating exhibits. Plus, admission is free every day of the year. 6:30 p.m. For some serious design eye-candy, check out the Hotel Jerome and have a drink at its overthe-top gorgeous bar, The Living Room. This historic landmark hotel was completely renovated a few years ago,

with designer Todd-Avery Lenahan knocking it out of the park with the interiors. After a drink (or two), take a quick peek at the “wallpaper” made of vintage leather belts in the elevator as you head to the guest rooms. Wow. 8 p.m. For dinner, be sure to snag a table at Steak House No. 316, which is nestled on Restaurant Row. Owners Craig and Samantha Cordts-Pearce offer great food, an exclusive and cozy atmosphere and amazing service. What more could you want? After dinner, check the schedule at the Belly Up Aspen. It’s one of the best indoor venues to see live music anywhere. It’s intimate, well-run and shows range, featuring local favorites like Jes Grew, Chris Isaak, Ottmar Liebert and Kaskade.

PHOTOS: COURTESY KATHERINE DUPPS.

8 a.m. A great way to start the day, no matter the time of year, is to take a quick hike up Smuggler Mountain. Even after living in Aspen for 20 years, the view is still unbelievable.

These remarkable, original works of art by Post-Impressionist master Hugues Claude Pissarro are perfect examples of this virtuoso’s command of light and color. Much like his grandfather, the great Impressionist Camille Pissarro, Hugues Claude’s use of swift, short brushstrokes combine to create the most entrancing and desirable landscapes of the 20th century.

First Impression: Substantial, modular, biomimicry, symbolic, meticulous. Artistry: Erinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work preserves fragile, found-in-nature forms in bronze: beetles, feathers and snakes are all frozen forever in time. These organic elements are combined with geometric patterns distilled from biology, ancient symbols and precise modern shapes to create a collection with references that span centuries. Material: The polished-brass base is very satisfying; I respond to the honesty of the material. Luxury: When the bespoke nature of the piece is evident, that is luxury. Time-Honored: These bookends seem like they could be from the ancient world. I can see this collection in a glamorous foyer or library.

First Impression: Simplistic, harmonious, teasing, light, elegant. Staying Power: Calvin Klein has managed to create interesting variations on traditional home pieces, elevating their elegance while keeping a level of simplicity that allows for each piece to complement a variety of styles. Form + Function: The juxtaposition between the glass and stone materials, while repeating the same square form within both, produces a gradation of transparency to opaque. Ethos: Playfulness brings a humanistic element to a design. Without it, the simplicity would feel sterile. Found: This table should live somewhere the light would constantly change, showing off the transparent levels of the base.

JUAN GARCIA MOSQUEDA SHOP OWNER CHAMBERNYC.COM

First Impression: Irregular, solid, man-made, cozy, precious. Finishing Touch: The glossy brass finish and textured exterior create a dialogue between the inside and out. Construction: Nested inside one another, the irregular shapes resemble something that comes from nature but is flecked with a human touch—a human intervention rooted in exceptional craftsmanship. Chances Are: Risk leads to great, unexpected results. It’s a fascinating way to ideate innovative products. Here, the experimentation within the applied arts led to a successful outcome that feels very natural, like part of the same visual language. Lasting Impact: People will look at these objects 100 years from now in museums and learn about our current lifestyle and contemporary human behavior. It’s these types of pieces that will eventually transcend time.

First Impression: Complementary, elegant, quiet, expressive, balanced. Show + Tell: Every designer’s creative process is wildly different. It is difficult to look at a final piece and know how someone has arrived there. The object will always possess phantoms of the process, but if a work is successful (like here) there is also something that has not entirely been revealed, something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Mark of Success: Balance achieved via imbalance. Memory: Ten years ago I was traveling on the Trans-Siberian Railway and there was an incredibly beautiful woman that left behind an Art Deco hairpin similar to this fixture. I keep it with my drafting pencils. Play vs. Work: Playfulness is the forever mistress of all creative work.

First Impression: Textural, romantic, rugged, rich, Impressionistic. Forward-Thinking: It’s not easy to take something old and make it new, but for Designers Guild, that art seems effortless. In this collection, traditional motifs and contemporary palettes draw from the past—enlivening designs in a way that feels fresh and transformative. Work of Art: These prints don’t feel like fabric but rather painted compositions—as if Monet stopped by the studio to whip up some designs. Instant Classic: Each hand-painted fabric is quick to become an heirloom of tomorrow. That’s often the benefit of a one-of-a-kind piece, especially one that puts whimsy front and center.

LAURA AVIVA

SHOP OWNER AND PRODUCT DESIGNER LAVIVAHOME.COM

First Impression: Hand-touched, spirited, bold, evocative, regal. Composition: I love how these chairs play with form and proportion, most especially in their exaggerated torsos that reveal a soft, matte finish on the maple. Muse: Anna Karlin artfully navigates the design process in such an incredibly fluid way without relegating what she does to a specific discipline. Working with this dynamic interdisciplinary approach, she really hones the definition of what it means to create and to be a creative. Storytelling: While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly true that these chairs exude a modern silhouette, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also something nostalgic about them. They generate an emotional response and prevail a connection to objects in a compelling way.

MATERIAL MAGIC

SILVER AND GOLD ARE MORE THAN HOLIDAY MAINSTAYS: THESE RICH METALS ARE BRINGING SPARKLE TO THE HOME’S POWERHOUSE ROOMS ALL YEAR-ROUND. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

There’s a reason why materials like silver and gold are such sought-after options in the worlds of fine jewelry and art: The metals are as practical as they are beautiful—their patented shimmer and shine as powerful a statement as their longevity. So, it makes sense that as the kitchen and bathroom become more and more like proper gems in the center of the homes they inhabit, that designers and architects alike would begin to implement a bit of similar material magic into their designs—a wonderfully sculptural knob in hand-cast bronze in the bath or a ribbon of brass inlaid into a complicated tile pattern on a backsplash. Here, we borrow the best of bling to celebrate kitchens and baths that are both high functioning and high fashion.

HAUTE DISH CAITLIN MURRAY

Los Angeles-based interior designer Caitlin Murray uses big doses of high-gloss brass and emerald to transform an entertainment-friendly kitchen into a moody, modern masterpiece that is huge on style. blacklacquerdesign.com Share your vision for this enviable space. The client is young and hip and works in tech, so my partner at the time, Caitlin McCarthy of Caitlin McCarthy Design, and I felt like there was a wonderful opportunity to do something fun and out there. When we found the color for the cabinets— Benjamin Moore’s Chrome Green—we knew we had exactly what we were looking for. It informed everything we did.

Favorite thing about this showstopping kitchen? I love the edgy black Marquina marble and the way that the material interacts with the other elements in the space, like the lacquered brass and the rich green of the cabinets. The resulting combination just reads as really luxurious and incredibly bold. Everything about this kitchen was designed to stand out, and that’s what it does.

Why did you opt for brass fixtures and hardware? We didn’t want to do anything that was expected, and I think using chrome or polished nickel would have been pretty, for sure, but more subtle than what we wanted to achieve. The lacquered brass, on the other hand, is super dramatic and reads so perfectly with the color story in the space that I’m not sure the kitchen would feel as balanced without it.

In this handsome San Francisco space, for example, designer I-Ching Ueng takes the mix one step further, integrating the chromed-out accents on the kitchen’s focal wall with an attention-grabbing bronze chandelier overhead, the result of which is an effortlessly chic retreat that’s perfect for entertaining. poggenpohl.com

While German-based kitchen manufacturer Eggersmann has become well-known in the States for its sleek, contemporary kitchens with razor-sharp lines, the company hasn’t been resting on its laurels.

Leather accents and crisp stainless steel have become foundations for the company’s carefully rendered drawer organization units, including specially crafted inserts that are really spicing things up. eggersmann.com

TAILOR MADE

For tile manufacturer New Ravenna Mosaic’s latest offering—the Parterre collection—the company got personal, tasking its consumers with fl exing their creative muscles thanks to the line’s endless possibilities for customization. When designers Sara Baldwin and Paul Schatz began developing the designs, they wanted to create surfaces with the flexibility to encourage tile lovers to leave their mark, so the 18 laser-cut variations they crafted allow them to substitute natural stone with Serenity glass, shell, ceramic and even aluminum to build unique combinations for bathrooms that are as individual as the people who inhabit them. newravenna.com

Crafted from a single piece of stone, Lapicida’s Italian Arabescato marble bathtub is designed to make a statement. While its $45,000 price tag ensures the piece is as exclusive a showpiece as you can imagine for the bath, truly it is the bathtub’s creamy color and dreamy gray veining that makes it a real standout.

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

The bathtub is from Victoria + Albert; the chandelier is from 1stdibs. All of the hardware used throughout the space is from Waterworks, with the exception of the vintage seahorse hardware sourced from the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

Designers have been busy bringing gold and brass into the bath to pretty up what has, in the past, been purely practical, and these warm-toned materials are quickly giving tried-and-true chrome a run for its money. According to Tamara Kaye-Honey, the designer responsible for this pretty Southern California room, this change is only natural. “There’s a lovely patina that comes from working with materiels like unlacquered brass,” she says. “Plus, when paired with white, the palette is soothing while also feeling fresh and modern.” On the following page, interior talents from across the country share their favorite golden-hued spaces from their own design portfolios.

“BRINGING IN BRASS IN SMALL TOUCHES IS A GREAT WAY TO INTRODUCE WARMTH AND CLASS TO AN OTHERWISE SIMPLE SPACE.”

“THE BRASS MIRROR WORKS GREAT WITH THE OIL-RUBBED BRONZE HERE. I PREFER TO MIX AND MATCH. IT MAKES THINGS LOOK SO MUCH MORE AUTHENTIC.” -LINDSEY CORAL HARPER, lchinteriors.com

“There’s more of a story to a space that uses brass instead of chrome or stainless steel. Brass adds a maturity and history to any room.” -RYAN WHITE, ryanwhitedesigns.com

Clockwise from top left: The team at House of Jade Interiors struck a winning combination in this bathroom by pairing brass-framed mirrors from One Kings Lane with pendants from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. The Waterworks vanity, faucet, mirror and floor tile in this midcentury-inspired bathroom by Ryan White all contribute to the space’s timeless look; the sconces are from Circa Lighting. In this powder room by Lindsey Coral Harper, the vintage mirror from Mrs. Howard is a true standout against the teal Farrow & Ball wallpaper; the onyx countertop is from R.G. New York Tile.

AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE TRENDS, TIPS AND TRICKS THAT HELP INFUSE A HOME WITH COLOR. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

SHADE SPECIFIC Although neutral living has dominated the home space for quite some time, tried-and-true hues like cream, white and gray have found themselves with some major competition. As homeowners are veering away from playing it safe and toward having more fun in interiors, they’re turning to color to create one-of-a-kind retreats. Whether it’s a bright injection of hue on a well-curated selection of pattern-happy pillows or bold walls painted in a can’t-look-away shade, color is taking center stage. Here, we check in with some of the nation’s top talents on the best ways to bring happy hues home.

With all the many paint manufacturers and cleverly named swatches to choose from, the hunt for the perfect hue can prove to be difficult. From light and airy to rich and saturated, our most coveted colors are ones that are both easy to live with and that beg guests to take notice. Here, we share the covetable shades that have been making the most appearances on our design dream boards recently.

TURN IT UP Jill Goldberg, founder of Hudson Interior Designs in Boston, goes beyond the pale, literally, as she shares her fail-proof philosophy for designing with color. Do you have a go-to shade? There’s absolutely nothing better, in my opinion, than a vibrant, Hermès-y orange. It’s my favorite color, and I love to mix it in with lots of lovely greens and blues for maximum effect. Typically, my ideal palette is one that incorporates both a warm and a cool color. Best rooms for big color? Give me a small room, and I’ll give you big, bold pattern

COM_LX4_TheReport_194-201.indd 196

and plenty of color. Tiny spaces mean you don’t have to go overboard and fill them with a lot of furniture that’s eventually going to compete with your palette, so they feel more balanced and exciting to me. Share your formula for a room with look-at-me color that doesn’t overwhelm. There’s no perfect equation, of course, but I always try to start with a singular pattern or fabric that brings all the colors I’m dreaming of together. Then, I pull the shades I like out of it— introducing them onto the draperies, trim, carpet and contrast welts throughout the room. hudsoninteriordesigns.com

HITTER

Yellow can be a bit of a gamble in the design world; the notoriously difficult shade is tricky to work with thanks to its multitude of undesirable undertones. Designer Chenault James of Columbus, Georgia, however, has it all figured out, as evidenced in this soft and sophisticated entry foyer. “As long as I gravitate toward a strong school bus yellow, the color always works for me,” she says. “It’s my favorite shade because it’s crisp and clear and doesn’t feel muddy or weighed down.” chenaultjames.com

STYLED TO IMPRESS Bringing in color through accessories is one of Atlanta-based designer Jessica Walmsley’s favorite ways to fill a room with warmth and personality. And this pretty dining space makes it easy to see why introducing them is so effective, especially when they’re paired with funky patterns and elegant prints. “Accessories, like blue-andwhite porcelain, for example, are the icing on the cake and, other than fabric, are my favorite part of the process,” she explains. “They make a room feel layered and lived-in.” jessicawalmsleyinteriors.com

ALL IN

Although this Miami living room by designer Robert Passal is not for the faint of heart, who wants to be faint of heart anyway? With just about every color of the rainbow present and accounted for, this space does more than pay lip service to the city’s Art Deco origins, and all of the vibrant, framed artwork ties the look together with all the mastery of Picasso. robertpassal.com

A cool take on preppy painted furniture pieces, Bungalow 5’s Marco collection features a line of case goods categorized by its crisp silhouettes upholstered in rich, textural grass cloth. The nautical navy hue of the large cabinet showcased here looks especially chic when paired with the piece’s handsome gold nailheads and contemporary square pulls. bungalow5.com

BLACK MAGIC This moody-meets-majestic breakfast room by Birmingham, Alabama-based designer Rebecca Hawkins proves wrong the common misconception that dark colors don’t bode well in small spaces with style in spades. Instead, the chiaroscuro-inspired aesthetic of this sun-dappled spot gives the awkward corner it inhabits new life; a charming pop of yellow, too, on the upholstered bench helps elevate the room into a cozy hideaway that has quickly become a family favorite. 205.919.8842

As head of creative for the revered British paint and wallpaper company Farrow & Ball, Charlotte Cosby is an invaluable resource when it comes to identifying color trends. She’s sharing her predictions and picks for what designers and homeowners alike will be gravitating toward in 2016:

INSPIRATION For interior designer Angie Hranowsky, color is second nature. Here, the Charleston, South Carolina-based talent dishes on how to get it made in the shade (each and every one of them). Go big: The easiest way to transform a room and a space is to paint all of your walls a bold, bright shade. It gives you the biggest bang for your buck; plus, you can always paint over it if you change your mind later. Hang it up: One of my favorite methods to bring colorful interest into a home is to introduce beautiful artwork, like the bottle cap portrait by local artist Molly B. Right in this living space I created. It informed everything else in the room—such a statement maker. Stay small: If you’re feeling a little intimidated, there’s no shame in easing into color. Start by working in more exciting shades on your fabrics or pillows—or place an eye-catching throw at the foot of your bed. angiehranowsky.com

COM_LX4_TheReport_194-201.indd 200

What’s on the color horizon for the coming year? Bold color and colored neutrals will definitely play a big role in 2016. We’re seeing people becoming more experimental as we move out of the recession, and they’re looking to make their homes feel brighter and more confident by using color. Favorite shade of the moment? It’s Farrow & Ball’s 70th anniversary next year, so there will be a lot of exciting launches to look forward to

that will mark the occasion. In terms of my favorite right now, though, it’s Stiffkey Blue (shown here). It’s regal and romantic, a real classic. Tricks for selecting the perfect paint color? I always think the most important thing is to choose a color you love! It sounds simple, but if you want to create your perfect home, making sure it’s decorated with the patterns, paints, artworks and accessories you love is the best place to start. farrow-ball.com

11ORANGE FEEL

There’s no limit to how often and how much to use your ideal color once you’ve finally found it. So, when San Francisco designer Lauren Ranes and her client stumbled upon the dreamiest shade of citrus they’d ever seen, they didn’t hesitate to introduce it again and again into the family homestead. “The color, Benjamin Moore’s Ravishing Red, is tomato, persimmon and watermelon all rolled into one,” explains Ranes. “It’s a dignified and cheerful shade.” The result is a cohesive color scheme that relies on pattern and print throughout to make it appropriate for each space. Here, in the breakfast room, for example, a charming Schumacher wallpaper behind the shelves and blue-and-white ginger jars lend the dining space off the kitchen the touch of formality it required. laurenranes.com

BRIGHT LIGHT Formal doesn’t have to be fussy when it comes to stunning candelabras that are just as handsome during daytime hours as they are when they are all lit up—at least that’s the story Dunes and Duchess is telling with the brand’s coveted four-arm version, available in a variety of colorful finishes. dunesandduchess.com

COM_LX4_TheReport_194-201.indd 217

13

MODERN CLASSIC

One of color’s most prized properties is being able to bring a fresh, modern perspective to traditional spaces, like it does in this sweet foyer in North Carolina with inspiring architectural detail. Using a palette of soft green and subdued coral, designer Barrie Benson transformed the home’s 1950s bones into a graceful, feminine dream. “I wanted to give a nod to the old without making it feel like one’s grandmother lives here,” says Benson with a laugh. “The palette definitely sets the tone for that. It gives visitors the hint that not everything inside is as conservative as you’d expect from a more formal Southern home.” barriebenson.com

AS K T HE EXPE RT What is inspiring you now? It’s inspiring to see that wood is being seen as a sustainable resource in home building. Architects, builders and clients are choosing more wood products over heavy fossil fuel products like concrete and steel. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Our work is a reflection of the diverse group of architects and designers we’ve worked with over the years. We don’t have one specific style of timber-frame; however, I believe the quality of our product stands out. What are you working on next? Our largest and most interesting project is the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark. When the project is complete, it will be the largest freestanding timber-frame structure in the world!

COLORADO TIMBERFRAME Equal parts passion and profession, Colorado Timberframe is a testament to the success that follows when fervor meets skill. The once-boutique firm, founded by third-generation builder Keenan Tompkins, has grown into one of the largest and most advanced timber frame companies in North America. Tompkins, whose father and grandfather were both custom home builders, has been immersed in the trade, arguably, since birth. While working as a custom builder in Chicago’s North Shore, he began to infuse his work with creative uses of wood. In 2005, the builder began a new life and company in Colorado, using his favorite building material as the impetus. “I moved my family to Colorado with the vision to start a company that specialized in supplying custom timber-frame products to homeowners, builders and architects in the Colorado market,” he says. “Working with elements of wood in creative ways has always been a passion of mine, which led me to start Colorado Timberframe.” The rest—as what often happens when preparation and opportunity collide—is history. Today, the company has a tremendous 30,000-square-foot timber-frame facility, complemented by an expert team of designers, craftsmen and installers who collaborate closely with architects and builders, as well as homeowners. “More than our love affair with the beauty and integrity of timber-frame construction, Colorado Timberframe is about the relationships we make and the partnerships we forge with like-minded contractors and architects who also have a passion for timber-frame beauty,” Tompkins shares. “It’s important for our clients to work with someone they trust and can rely on to do what they say they are going to do and someone who can guide them throughout the whole process. That’s what we strive to do.”

AS K T HE EXPE RT Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? A good design is defined by how well the system functions and how simple it is to use by our clients.

Describe the philosophy behind your firm. Listening to our clients! It's pretty simple when you think about what will make a client happy. How do you define a successful project? The smile or the emails we get from our clients when they start using their system. Our business is referral driven, so getting a referral from our happy clients is a grand statement for us to measure success.

ELECTRONIC INTEGRATION “Technology is everywhere. It’s hard to imagine any aspect of our lives that doesn’t involve it!” exclaims longtime home automation enthusiast and expert Roger Koehler. “From our phones to cars to homes, technology has unquestionably changed how we engage many of our most integral devices—even how we engage each other.” At the forefront of the technological movement, or better yet, at the forefront of the research that highlights what works best at home and what doesn’t, is home integrated technology firm Electronic Integration. Koehler, who founded the Denverbased company almost 25 years ago, has spent a near lifetime perfecting the digitally intelligent residence. “Information and entertainment are at the touch of a button,” he says. “Making all of this technology work together didn’t exist 20 years ago. Electronic Integration has grown with these technology changes and the ability to make it work seamlessly.” Assessing the efficacy of new technologies, which are rapidly being introduced to the residential market, is a mission of Electronic Integration’s—allowing homeowners to not be overwhelmed with the breadth of options now available. “Technology development has been moving very fast in what and how you can control many parts of a home. The iPad and iPhone created a huge platform for that control capability,” Koehler explains. “We keep a close eye on technologies and what they can offer a homeowner.” The full-service firm is recognized for its custom-engineered home theater and whole-house entertainment systems. In addition to its dazzling in-home theaters, complete with dynamic sound, flawless large-screen displays and even seating that moves with the action, Electronic Integration offers a host of services, including lighting control and shading, music systems and security and networking.

AS K T HE EXPE RT Can you share a little about your firm and how it has evolved? Throughout my career, I have had employees, business partners and co-owned two showrooms. Now as a one-man design firm, I realize that my clients appreciate the fact that they are working directly with me, and not someone from my staff.

David Hintgen Principal 720.280.2196 david@dhinteriorsdenver.com dhinteriorsdenver.com

What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? I love starting a new project. This is when clients come forward with inspirational pictures of how they want their home to look and feel in the end. I enjoy the challenge of translating as many of these ideas as possible into their new home. What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? I have only one goal: pleased, satisfied clients. It’s not about me or my portfolio, because it’s not my home, it’s theirs. My clients have to live in the surroundings that I create for them. That’s a pretty big responsibility and I don’t take it lightly.

DH INTERIORS David Hintgen is an acclaimed interior designer whose name is commensurate with the dramatic and extraordinary. His interiors, routinely referred to as compelling and inspiring, have been labeled enduring and timeless. Based in Denver, Hintgen’s visual consistency is revealed through the all-at-once handsome yet stunning environments he creates. A refined elegance best describes his work: always rich with detail and an unpredictable use of texture, flowing from a graceful, soothing color palette. Influences for the awardwinning designer range from fine finishes to fellow design luminaries. “One thing I have always been drawn to is high-end, luxury retail boutiques: not for what they’re selling, but for their seemingly boundless execution of creativity combined with phenomenal finishes within such a limited space,” he says. “They have always been a source of inspiration for me that often transfers to my residential work. Two of my favorite designers are William Sofield and Peter Marino; in my opinion, they are at the forefront of this genre.” Over the course of Hintgen’s 15-year career, his clean, contemporary interiors, infused with glamour and discernment, have been recognized and showcased nationally. “I love contemporary because as a category, it can have such a vast range,” he says. “One of my favorite styles is one that is architecturally spacious and clean, uses 80 percent contemporary furnishings and finishes, yet incorporates a select few, carefully placed antiques.” Whether his clients are building a new home or remodeling an existing home, furnishing an apartment or opening a luxury boutique, Hintgen’s years of experience allow involvement on every aspect of a project. His diverse design background and wealth of knowledge, combined with vast industry relationships, sustains his position as one of the Denver area’s leading interior designers.

The horizontal grain of this custom cabinetry runs the full width of the kitchen, matching up perfectly from door to door. “The cabinetry resulted in a stunning effect, providing the contrast needed to help the porcelain countertops stand out,” Hintgen says.

My philosophy is simple: I put as much care, love and attention into each project as though it were my own home.

The layout of this bathroom provided the symmetry that allowed the placement of the bathtub to be centered on the window. “The view from this window was impressive. I used an unusual marble on the walls to help frame it,” Hintgen says.

For this nail salon in Cherry Creek North, Hintgen’s bold use of an 8-foot-tall chandelier in the center of the salon sets the focal point. “The owner says she has to regularly clean her windows because passersby are always peering in!” Hintgen says.

hen a couple decided to build a home in Vail Valley—a place they had both visited since they were kids—they found a pristine lot surrounded by aspen groves that opened up to cinematic mountain views. They imagined capturing those vistas with an airy, modern structure that spoke to the mountain vernacular, so they turned to architects John R. Cottle and Simon Elliot to help realize that vision. To start, the architects and the couple embarked on a three-day charette, during which they brainstormed, shared ideas and walked the property. Inspired by an image they’d seen, and brought with them to one of the meetings, the couple suggested the concept of having part of the home act as a bridge over the property. That notion provided the project’s catalyst. “The forest has such a strong presence that the design response needed to be as poetic and powerful,” says Cottle. “When we started talking about a bridge, we all agreed that it could be magical.” Following that idea, the architects sketched a design that entailed building foundations on two spots. Between those two foundations, an elevated connector space holding the living and dining areas—and marked by walls of glass— would bridge through the forest. “The transparency of the bridge emphasizes the continuity and connection from the entry side through to the tremendous mountain views to the south,” says Cottle. “It also minimizes the house’s footprint on the land.” That goal of treading lightly on the land was driven by the owners and shared by the whole team. Landscape designer Glen Ellison and landscape architect Kathy Aalto utilized native and ornamental plantings, and, notes Ellison, “particular attention was taken in the preservation of the natural grade and the existing aspens.” The builders were careful to minimize their impact, as well. “We took great care to preserve as many trees as possible,” says builder David Hyde, the firm’s president, who worked with project manager Rob Fawcett. In devising the home’s three-level layout, the architects maximized the light and views not just within the bridge, but also throughout the house. The couple wanted to live primarily on the main level and have the second level accommodate visits from their two grown sons. A central stairway, made from walnut and steel, ascends all three 234 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Architects John R. Cottle and Simon Elliot designed a contemporary house that treads lightly on its Vail Valley site. The entry door, made in collaboration between Woden Woods and Myers & Company Architectural Metals, pivots open next to the structureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steel-and-glass bridge, which offers views through the house out to the mountains.

floors alongside a window, which faces the trees outside and lets light spill in. “Having the verticality of that slot of glass reinforces the appearance of the verticality of the trees,” Elliot says. Within the main living spaces, Cottle and Elliot found another way to promote the flow of natural light. They positioned a Pennsylvania bluestone cube—containing the pantry—between the living and dining areas in the bridge and the kitchen volume, which contains a hearth room. “The cube doesn’t reach the ceiling,” says the wife, “so it delineates the rooms without blocking them off from each other; it’s brilliant.” To keep the open spaces feeling unified, simplicity was key when it came to culling the material selection. Throughout the structure, the architects—whose team also included Chris Touchette and Erica Golden—stuck to cedar and walnut in coordinating finishes as well as Pennsylvania bluestone, glass and steel. “There was a desire to make the material palette very cohesive, from exterior to interior,”

Elliot says. “On one side of the living room, the cedar siding comes from the outside, pulls through the house and goes out the other side.” Executing the crisp design required a meticulous approach. In the master bathroom, for example, the builders perfectly lined up the Pennsylvania bluestone flooring with the center of the bathtub and then continued the alignment all the way through the main level of the house, including both sides of the pantry cube. But that rigorous attitude didn’t stop with the floor. “This project demanded a level of precision and exactitude that challenged everyone involved,” says the husband. “I don’t think there was a single detail that wasn’t obsessed over.” Even the wood surfaces for the vanities and the media cabinets were hand-selected from the same flitches. The couple’s longtime designer, New York-based Douglas Wittels, was equally committed to creating a clean, geometric aesthetic. “An interior like this, where the

lines are so crisp and straight, needs to be edited,” he says. Working off the angular aesthetic of the architecture, Wittels drew inspiration from the grid-like forms of artist Piet Mondrian when designing the main living spaces. “The carpet and the coffee table in the living area, as well as the dining table and chairs, are all part of that concept,” Wittels says of the pieces’ reappearing square elements. “The nightstands in the master bedroom, with their beautiful bronze square pulls, also continue the geometric theme.” Although many of the furnishings are made of wood, glass and steel, in a nod to the architecture, Wittels custom-designed the upholstered pieces to be soft and inviting. Scale was also carefully considered. “I wanted the sofa to be very long so it could seat many people and also give the room some drama,” he says of the living area. “The furniture is all the same height—the back of the chairs, the back of the sofa and the console—so nothing is too jarring; it’s a soothing marriage.” In arriving at a color palette, Wittels took into consideration the homeowners extensive collection of contemporary art. The designer kept the background neutral to showcase pieces by such artists as Takashi Murakami, Anish Kapoor and John McCracken, among others. “The interiors are a great foil, not just for the art but also for the views,” he says. In all, the home took 30 months to build, with every detail painstakingly attended to. “We were not going to compromise on the design,” Cottle says of the efforts of everyone involved. “The challenge was executing on that. When you raise the bar, you set the goal that this is going to be a fantastic piece of art. And a lot of the art of architecture takes time to appreciate, to see how the materials are handled, to notice the details and to see how light moves through the space. Architecture can be transformative; maybe you even see the forest a little differently when you live in a bridge in the midst of it.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 245

verything is done in-house,” explains Rob McGowan, who co-founded the Denver-based furniture company Fin Art with his childhood friend Ben Olson. “There’s not a single piece that leaves these doors that our hands haven’t touched.” The duo’s pieces—from powder-coated-steeland-maple dining chairs to bars made with reclaimed cattle-car siding—can be admired in such culinary hot spots as Linger and Old Major, while their other statement-making designs, including a bar they crafted from the wing of a Cessna airplane, are custom-made for private homes. “Our workshop has created the availability and means to redefine ourselves and try new approaches,” says Olson. Indeed, since starting their company after college with little more than a handsaw and an entrepreneurial spirit, the pair have moved from a one-car garage into a 3,900-square-foot workshop and have taken on three craftsmen to help realize their creations. While commercial projects have become a substantial part of their business—they recently designed and built the entire black-steel-and-blonde-maple interior of Bar Fausto—McGowan and Olson remain true to their furniture roots. “Our credenza, with highgloss white siding and reclaimed-wood doors, started it all,” says McGowan of their signature piece. “We want to set ourselves apart by giving a modern, refined edge to the reclaimed material.” That aesthetic evolved further as Fin Art launched its One collection of made-to-order designs. “The reclaimed look has been our bread and butter, but we don’t want to be pigeonholed,” says McGowan. “We’re not giving up on that by any means, but we’re taking a new approach and focusing on simple, elegant and modern designs.” The tables, chairs, stools and credenzas in the One line are set off by smooth walnut cabinet faces, leather tab pulls and waxed-metal bases. “It’s been inspiring to challenge ourselves to come up with furniture that’s beautiful enough in its design and craftsmanship that it doesn’t need anything extra,” says McGowan. “It takes a lot of thought to make something simple and restrained.”

esign can often be a balancing act. And as the team at Duet Design Group—including principals Miranda Cullen and Devon Tobin— approached the interiors for a new house in Sedalia, they found the perfect middle ground. “The husband and wife were on different pages aesthetically,” Cullen says of the empty-nester couple from Denver, who were in the process of downsizing. “She leaned toward a traditional sensibility, and he wanted something a little more edgy. Our job was to blend those styles together so they both felt at home.” To create that home, the couple had painstakingly looked for the ideal location. It took several years to find, but their persistence and patience paid off when they discovered a jewel in the rough of Sedalia—a vacant 11-acre hilltop lot with panoramic views of the Rocky Mountain foothills. The site was ideal for the home they envisioned: a simple structure with big views, lots of windows, a large outdoor terrace

with a swimming pool, and, most important, an informal and inviting atmosphere that would become a magnet for their children and grandchildren. “They were looking to simplify their life,” says architect Michael L. Woodley, with whom the couple also worked to design their previous residence. “The idea was to create a home that could accommodate grand family events, but also wasn’t out of scale when it was just the two of them.” With that in mind, Woodley designed an L-shaped structure with two distinct wings: one with a great room containing the main living areas and the other with a master suite. The wings are connected by a gracious hallway, which opens onto a covered outdoor terrace and pool. Stairs off the entry lead to a lower level, where Woodley positioned the husband’s studio, a recreation room and guest quarters. “The structure is simple and uncomplicated, while still allowing them to live exactly the way they want to,” says the architect.

Per the homeowners’ request, custom-blended cobblestone in soft neutral tones was used on the walls, inside and out, with expansive glass openings framed in black steel puncturing the walls. “It was the perfect middle ground for both of them,” says Woodley, “warm, yet modern.” The architect oriented the house so that the sight line from the glass front door leads straight through the hallway to the pool in the back and the expansive vistas beyond. “So often a house plan is decided on and then the lot is chosen,” explains Bob Woodley, the project’s builder and the architect’s brother. “But this house was perfectly designed and built for the site it sits on.” For the interiors, the designers focused on a monochromatic palette of ivory, white and earth tones, which they blended with linen textiles, wood elements and iron finishes. “The design of this home is unique because there really is no color in it,” says Cullen. “Contrast is created with black accents, the exterior views and the homeowners’ extensive art collection.” Throughout the home, the walls and trim were painted “not white, not cream, but the perfect in-between,” she adds, and the hue provides a crisp contrast to the rustic stonework. To keep the focus on the views, patterns were used minimally on the upholstered pieces and window treatments were kept simple. “This house illuminates with amazing natural light, and by sticking with tonal fabrics and surfaces, we were able to reflect that light to create a warm, fresh and inviting environment,” says Cullen. At one end of the house, a large great room creates a grand yet welcoming gathering space. “We designed that room with several different usages in mind,” explains Cullen. Wood barstools pull up to the kitchen’s island, creating a casual eating area on one side of the room, while sophisticated chairs encircle a hefty reclaimed-wood table in the adjacent, more formal dining area. Back-toback seating areas—appointed with wingback chairs in both modern wood and classic tufted versions—anchor the opposite end. Subtle black accents throughout echo

the shade of the window frames and sharpen the more traditional elements. Cullen points specifically to the black trim on the white kitchen cabinets and the pair of agedbrass ceiling fixtures marked by bulbs dangling from black fabric-wrapped cables above the dining and sitting areas. Despite the large space, the room feels cohesive thanks to its muted palette. Those quiet tones continue in a separate parlor just off the entry—where the designers re-covered the homeowners’ sofa and two chairs with warm linen—and pick up again in the master bedroom. Inspired by a beloved image the owners found in a book, the designers wrapped the doors to the bedroom and the wife’s bathroom with creamy faux leather and detailed them with black nailhead trim.

Outside, “the views were the first priority,” says landscape designer Ben Browne. “The homeowners wanted the pool terrace to make a statement and for everything else to blend in with the surroundings.” To accommodate their requests, he incorporated native plantings and designed a low retaining wall made from the same stone used for the house to encircle the terrace. “Everything outside of the wall is natural,” Browne says, “and everything inside is manicured and sleek.” After the two-year process of completing the house, it appears that persistence and patience has paid off for the homeowners once again. “We’ve created our own private resort,” says the husband. “There’s no reason for us to go anywhere.”

“MY SEASONAL COLLECTIONS ARE FED BY THE SIGHTS AND IMAGERY AROUND ME.”

CO_LX42_SM_Quinn_264-267.indd 266

hether felting Pucci-esque bikinis or a zebra-striped elephant, Boulder-based fiber artist Maryanne Quinn taps into her graphic design background and innate understanding of color to create her whimsical designs. “I use color to define a mood and to punctuate an idea,” explains Quinn, whose works—measuring from 8 to 65 square inches—are realized in her signature overlapping patterns and crisp forms. “My clean lines and bold edges distinguish my feltings from others working with wool.” Influenced by a wide spectrum of inspirations—ranging from the night sky and snow-covered branches to conversation and vintage clothing—Quinn often keeps her work seasonal and thematic. Living in Colorado and spending her summers on the East Coast beach where she grew up, Quinn easily integrates both aesthetics into her art. Deer antlers and ski patrol signs shape her winter works, while seashell and sailboat forms appear in the summer. “My seasonal collections are fed by the sights and imagery around me,” she says. While she’s been creative from an early age, Quinn was first introduced to felting at the preschool of one of her daughters. She was instantly hooked on the tactile technique, and she practiced and experimented with pillows before moving into art. Now, her own youth proves to be fruitful grounds for culling inspiration. “For whatever reason I love drawing on moments from my childhood,” says Quinn, noting one series featuring ski hats modeled after a 1970s version her family wore on holiday. “Seeing them rendered in felt sends me right back to family picnics outside the ski lodge in winter.” In arriving at her vibrant works—offered throughout Colorado in shops including Worth Home in Vail and Tweed in Telluride—Quinn often starts with a color combination or a specific memory. After sketching a design, she turns on music and grabs her scissors and wool. “I attribute the order evident in my feltings to my background in graphic design, and the soul comes from the spontaneity of wool being worked with my hands,” explains the artist, who fuses the cut shapes together by manipulating the layers of wool with soapy water. “Time falls away when I’m at work in my studio.”

esigner David Hintgen was selecting furnishings for a project when he received unexpected news from his client. “I had been helping him with pieces for his current residence, as well as his new office, when one day I received a call,” he explains. “He said, ‘Forget the sofa we’ve been working on, I just bought a new house!’ ” The home, it turned out, was an imposing 1980s estate in Cherry Hills Village, and the client, who lived in the neighborhood, had been eyeing it for some time. “I adored the house,” says the owner. “It was one of the most unique I’d ever seen. I knew that so much could be done with it.” Designed by Barber Architecture and built by Al Cohen Construction Company—both firms are known for their large-scale corporate and public projects—the home featured commanding stone walls, slate-tiled hip roofs and a generous ridge skylight. Except for the installation of a new gate and some touch-ups here and there, little work was needed on the structure itself. The same could not be said, however, for the existing interior design. “It was quintessential 1980s, almost like walking into a time machine,” says Hintgen. “I wanted to transform the interiors into something no one had ever seen before. This couldn’t become another typical contemporary home; it had to be an extraordinary one.” Hintgen, together with architect Martin Goldstein and builders Mark Teets and Cindy Lizarraga, set out to make that happen. First, key elements were updated. Polished-brass hardware around door trims and jambs was refinished or refabricated, and Hintgen replaced the worn-out fabric upholstering the entry’s scalloped ceiling and walls with a neutral faux suede. The kitchen, with its yellow-painted metal cabinetry was also given an overhaul. Kitchen designer Sabine Buechner, of Minteriors, created a contemporary look with streamlined Leicht cabinetry, and Hintgen selected sleek rosewood and lacquer finishes. Outdated audio, lighting and other systems were all upgraded and integrated within a Crestron master control system with the help of Bill Rollin at ListenUp. When it came to the original hand-scraped, inlaid oakparquet floors that marked the entry, “we cleaned them up

and worked with the color tone, not against it,” says the designer. The rich golden hue of the floor also picks up in other areas of the house, including the skylight’s wood frame, as well as the great room’s vaulted ceiling and fireplace surround. “I knew as soon as I saw the scale of the great room that the fireplace needed to be the focal point,” says Hintgen. “But it was engulfed in oak cabinets.” The designer took down the cabinets and created a tall surround of highly patterned marble accented with angular bevels. “It’s the star of the show,” he adds. Hintgen also removed built-in sofas from the space and devised two seating areas, which he appointed with streamlined Holly Hunt furnishings and sleek pieces of his own design. Because the owner often entertains several hundred people at a time for fund-raisers and other events, Hintgen paid special attention to customizing key rooms for accommodating large groups. In the dining room, for instance, he pushed together two long glass-topped tables that can seat 22 guests and then encircled them with chairs upholstered in white vinyl. Guests can also gather around a player piano in the large formal living room, where Hintgen designed built-in sofas and covered them with the same chenille he used to upholster the walls. In the attached pool house, where the owner holds lunch meetings, Hintgen went for a bright, white look with pieces including a sectional sofa upholstered with an outdoor fabric. “I think it’s important that a pool house should not only look clean but be easy to clean, as well,” he notes. In addition to putting in new floor-to-ceiling pocket doors in the pool house, Goldstein collaborated with Hintgen on the structural redesign for a new gym in the main house and the reconfiguration of the master bathroom. As part of the reworked space, a steam room was added and designed to house a Kohler DTV shower system and a freestanding bathtub. “It was tricky balancing the design with functional elements, such as the slope of the floor and slot drains,” says Goldstein, who also supplied 3D images of the new space as well as other areas of the house. Commanding contemporary artwork found throughout the house, including a Gavin Rain piece in the living room, adds a final layer. “The owner already had a significant collection,” says Hintgen. “But as we were nearing completion on this house, he made a trip to Art Basel in Miami Beach and came back with a lot of great new pieces. It was perfect timing.” Art dealer Carol Abrams, of Abrams Art Consulting, worked with the owner on the selection and placement of his collection. “Art is an important focus of my client’s life,” says Abrams, “and, consequently, of his home.” As all of the details came together, the residence revealed a striking transformation. “It went from a dated house to something that’s contemporary, beautiful and relevant to 2015,” says Teets. Hintgen agrees, attributing the successful outcome to “a combination of elegant finishes, incredible artwork, formidable architecture and uncommon furnishings. I always knew how this house would look when it was completed,” he continues, “but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined.”

Designer David Hintgen transformed a 1980s house in Cherry Hills Village with sleek new interiors. The entryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original parquet flooring was refinished by Colorado Carpet and Rug, and the entryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceiling and walls were upholstered with faux suede by Calvin Klein Home for Kravet. A Usona table centers the space, and the Bolier console is from Chuck Wells & Associates.
