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

Christofle, the premier designer of French silver and decorative arts in jewelry, tableware and home accents, entrusts two of their most

THESE EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH: FIXTURES & FITTINGS THE HOUSTON DESIGN CENTER 7026 OLD KATY ROAD SUITE 171 HOUSTON, TX 77024 713.808.9069 FIXTURESFITTINGS.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

Luxe Interiors + Design has been busy this past fall with many exciting events. First, we hosted our 2nd Tuesday event—held in the Design House showroom at The Houston Design Center—which featured a fantastic panel discussion on the Internet and social media. Panelists included Paloma Contreras, owner of the esteemed La Dolce Vita blog, and brand strategist Kim Kuhteubl, of Me By Design. We also celebrated with Vivaldi Stone for its showroom’s grand opening, as well as with Designer Floors of Houston for its Sip Wine and Talk Design event, an evening that honored 2014-2015 ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter President Letecia Ellis and President Elect Martha Lurie. Lastly, we enjoyed being the media sponsor for the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) Texas Chapter’s John Staub Awards. Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who participated in this amazing event. Wishing you all happy holidays this season! 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.

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

▲ 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 ‹

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

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.”

BROWN

Birmingham | andrewbrowninteriors.com

 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.

WHO: Blogger, jogger and graphic designer Jessie Farris documents her latest adventures, highlighting special moments in both her travels and her everyday life via Instagram.

WHY: If you’re a sucker for succulents or flora, are over-the-moon over scenic scenes, or are taken by the day-to-day snippets of travel, Farris’ feed will give you your daily fix of Texan glory. IN HER WORDS: “I’m a graphic designer by day and a wanna-be interior designer in my free time. I’m a sucker for midcentury modern design and great color combos, too. Those two passions have sparked my love of photography. Being a trained designer has also led me to find new outlets for creative expression.”

THE INSIDER CHRIS DICKEN

OPEN HOUSE SHOPS & SHOWROOMS

Our holiday wish lists are a mile-long thanks to the openings of these latest shopping additions to the Texas market. If you’re in Austin, be sure to swing by Kettle & Brine (908-C West 12th St.) for artisanal kitchenwares and goods, James (1411 W. 6th St.), above, for the prettiest fabrics and design services by interiors maven Meredith Ellis, and Katie Kime’s inherently Instagram-able brick-and-mortar location (500 N. Lamar Blvd.). In Dallas, Jean de Merry (1505 Hi Line Dr.) makes its long-anticipated debut and showcases the brand’s signature glam furniture and lighting, while Houston’s Moroso (2800 Kirby Dr.) becomes another feather in serial design entrepreneur Adam Branscum’s hat.

Chris Dicken, owner of E.C. Dicken, has had a lot to celebrate recently: Not only did his venerable Dallas showroom turn 60 this fall, but its newest private label fabric collection launched in October, proving that Dicken is not willing to rest on his laurels. With an impressive brand roster, including cult favorites like A. Rudin, Brett Design and Keith Fritz, Dicken is already looking forward to the next 60. Here, the creative talent shares what’s on his radar in Dallas this season. ecdicken.com

What’s intriguing you in design? Recently, the trend of mixing traditional furniture with more modern and transitional pieces has been of major interest to me. This particular mix offers an amazing juxtaposition in style periods that seemingly would not be congruent but finds a pleasing equilibrium.

For the design-obsessed: Explore the Design District every third Saturday of the month during the Design Walk to discover all of our incredible art galleries, showrooms and retail shops. I also love attending the Thrift Studio event by Dwell with Dignity and mingling with designers and industry professionals there.

Luxury is… Relative to each individual. But, for me, it’s more about the experiences there are to be had every day in this richly diverse city. In Dallas, we have access to leading arts and entertainment destinations and shopping and culinary scenes.

What are your customers being drawn to lately? Custom upholstery that allows clients to individualize their style has been even more vital than usual recently. Luckily, we have many A. Rudin floor samples that customers are drawn to. What’s great is that with our many fabric offerings,

they can customize multiple elements to really make it their own. Best shopping sources: I love to explore unique neighborhoods with local independent stores and great restaurants. I can make an entire day out of walking around such wonderful areas as the Bishop Arts District and Knox-Henderson. Favorite thing in inventory? Do I have to pick just one? I’d have to say that it is ever-changing, but at the moment, it would be our private label fabric line, ECD Textiles. It is an exciting move forward for our growing fabric department.

WHAT: Each exploration is expertly captured—whether it’s a new restaurant, city skyline or even a relaxing day by the pool. Also, expect to find some around-the-world shots of Farris’ journeys, from San Francisco’s Chinatown to South Dakota’s Black Hills.

DATE BOOK SUZANNE COPPOLA

Near the corner of Persa Street sits Suzanne Coppola’s studio, Laurier Blanc—a tasteful treasure trove for all things worldly where you’ll find curiosities such as necklaces dangling with boar tusks, acrylic and burnt wood transformed into tables, or silky cowhides that add the perfect finishing touch to any floor or wall. With an eye for the unique, Coppola has been busy recently showcasing her latest finds from The Royal Hunt Collection: an expansive and showstopping compilation of hunting trophy mounts from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries that easily conjure up a sense of history with one glance. For Coppola, it’s about both the thrill of the chase and the excitement of bringing her favorite global goods home. Whether she’s traveling to French Polynesia or perusing the markets in Marrakesh, though, Houston is never far from her thoughts. “I just love the aesthetic here and how my clients aren’t afraid to add in a dose of whimsy or large unusual statement pieces into their décor,” she muses. Indeed, the city’s aesthetic is one-of-a-kind, as demonstrated through Coppola’s Houston to-do list that boasts as much personality as her carefully curated shop. Read below for her favorite spots to frequent. laurierblanc.com

-

9 a.m. Starting my day at the Laurier Blanc studio, where I’m usually cataloging finds from my recent trips. My photographer and I are currently working on our collections from my travels to Buenos Aires and the markets of Paris. 10 a.m. By this time I’m at my favorite morning spot, Picnic, which has the best coffee on the planet and a killer chocolate chip cookie to go with it. It’s right next to our new gallery space for The Royal Hunt Collection, 1926 Bissonnet Street, so I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy quite a few of their delectable pastries, too.

12 p.m. Meandering through the idyllic garden at Thompson + Hanson takes you to my favorite spot for brunch, Tiny Boxwoods. The aesthetic is divine—think sleek finished concrete floors and giant iron windows. Every time I’m here, I can’t help but dream about the imaginary home I want to design. The menu is divine and the French Picnic with rosemary ham and whipped goat cheese is hands down my favorite. Also, don’t pass on the chocolate chip cookies. They are a must. You may catch a glimpse of chef and owner Baron Doke in the back; he never seems to indulge me in my many attempts to get the recipes from my favorites out of him. 1 p.m. Sloan/Hall is a must-see in the area with such a gorgeous selection of frocks and jewelry. I love to pop in to see what’s new from my favorite jewelry designers Katie Design and Lee Ann Jones.

HEADSHOT: JULIE SOEFER. SHOP PHOTOS: LAYNE TANLEY.

11 a.m. A treasure trove of a garden nursery is Thompson + Hanson. It’s a feast for the senses and a place that seems to be straight out of the Hamptons. A gorgeous space filled with beautiful antiques, art and gifts, it offers a host of ideas to transform your garden. 2 p.m. Twenty Six Twenty is my favorite spot in Houston for antiques. Dot Dimiero and Dana Aichler’s vision for this studio is gorgeous, and they always have special one-of-a-kind pieces that draw attention. In addition to owning an antiques shop, they are also an amazing design duo who are my go-to for interior design. 3 p.m. Out and about, it’s time for an early afternoon cold-brew coffee with almond milk from Blacksmith. It has a sweet little patio that is the perfect spot to collect my thoughts and take a breather. 4 p.m. Space Montrose is a great place to check out since it features purely Texas- and U.S.-based artisans. The store has a gorgeous selection of art, jewelry and fun finds for the kids. I’ve got two young boys, and I always find something fun for them here.

5 p.m. I’m really having a love affair with the bedding collections at Biscuit. It is an impressive spot for gifts and bedding, and I can’t get enough of the faux-bois Paul bedding. 6 p.m. Doc’s Motorworks is the best possible option to enjoy a relaxed combination of cocktails and down-home Texas hospitality. Ask for Garret for extra special attention. I recommend the Houston Sipper with BAT sliders featuring applewood bacon, avocado and tomato. This is my ideal spot for a date night where my husband and I can also watch the game.

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.

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.

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

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 best part? Since it’s individually laser cut from one-of-a-kind antique stone in England, no two pieces will ever be alike. lapicida.com

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.

“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

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

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.

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:

9ART

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

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

Kelly O’Donnell, Leighton Hale and Tracey Shingledecker Owners 8570 Katy Freeway Houston, Texas 713.827.9292 backrowantiques@gmail.com backrowantiques.com

What led you to your current profession? O’Donnell and Shingledecker began 2 Lucy’s 10 years ago as a hobby while building their own homes and never expected it to become the success that it has. Hale gained his love and knowledge of antiques through his mother as a child and later worked at the design center for Richmond American Homes in Encino, California. What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? The success and growth of Back Row Antiques. We took a lot of time planning and designing to create something special and different from any other store in town.

BACK ROW ANTIQUES For Kelly O’Donnell, Tracey Shingledecker and Leighton Hale of Back Row Antiques, the journey is as important as the destination. In the realm of antiques, this means creating an enjoyable and engaging atmosphere in which clients can explore their myriad of handpicked treasures, both old and new. “It’s important to us that our clients truly enjoy coming into our store and leave wanting to come back. Nothing is more satisfying than when a new customer walks in and says, ‘Wow, this place is incredible!’ ” shares O’Donnell, one of three owners of the two-part antique shop. “That lets us know that we are doing a good job—not only by providing a place where people can find just what they are looking for, but inspire them at the same time.” Based in Houston, Back Row Antiques is owned by two distinct antique dealers: 2 Lucy’s Antiques, co-owned by O’Donnell and Shingledecker, and Leighton Hale Antiques, owned by the shop’s namesake, Hale. Blending unique tastes with decades of antiquarian experience, Back Row Antique’s proprietors have successfully created a twofold repository of rare and beautiful furnishings, décor and art, giving connoisseurs and first-time buyers boundless opportunities in which to shop, learn, discover and adore. “We love ‘the hunt’ and the excitement of finding something we've never seen before. We also love coming up with a new and interesting way to repurpose something and seeing it turn out even cooler than we imagined!” Shingledecker enthuses. In addition to fine furnishings and antiquities, Back Row Antiques is also the purveyor of a growing number of new lines as well as home accessories and one-of-a-kind gifts. “While antiques will always be our passion and primary business,” Hale asserts, “we are evolving into more than just an antique store.”

CISNEROS DESIGN STUDIO, ARCHITECTS LLC

What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? Without a doubt, the historic preservation and conversion of three early-20th-century Houston landmark structures into multiunit loft projects that are part of the continued downtown re-emergence as a viable living alternative. What are your favorite styles to work on and why? Contemporary. I like how clients respond to not having preconceived stylistic solutions determining the outcome of the process and impacting their unique sites and building solutions. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? First, participate fully in the process so that you feel that your heart and soul are in the design. Second, try to stay true to the initial ambition of the project.

For Romulo Tim Cisneros, luxury in architecture is “deliberate simplicity with the disciplined use of natural materials.” The acclaimed architect’s words are brought to beautiful fruition time and time again with a world-class portfolio of residential, commercial and hospitality projects in Houston and beyond. Established in the early nineties, the once-boutique residential-oriented firm has evolved into a largely commercial and hospitality office—though the firm designs about a half dozen custom residential projects a year throughout the U.S. The design studio’s ability to adapt to new environments and shifts in residential lifestyle preferences is exceptional, though several common denominators distinguish its creative process from its peers. “Our work has always been rooted in a responsible environmental approach while using unique responses to the site and program,” Cisneros says. “We strive to offer a clear, respectful and pragmatic response to the client, the site and the ambitions that we have established together for the project.” Developers in and around Houston have enlisted Cisneros to creatively lead and design new residences in response to the aging-in-place movement, a concept in design that enables adults to live in their homes as long as possible (thanks to smart ergonomic design). Additionally, the architect is working on the conversion of a 1920s-era four-story historic furniture factory into 95 affordable apartment lofts and a 20,000-square-foot Montessori school situated on a cliff site in north Austin. The diversity and scope of each Cisneros-designed project speaks to the architect’s solution-seeking methodology. “My favorite part of the creative process is distilling the varied wants and desires, often contradictory, of a client into a coherent and respectable design solution,” he shares. TOP: Set into a Houston urban forest, this residence engages the environment by having the entry, living room and master suite thrust over a deep ravine. The home is accessed by an entry bridge over the 30-foot-deep ravine. BOTTOM: Located on the banks of the Guadalupe River in Hunt, the linear residence provides views of the cypress-lined river from each room of the house.

The goal is to feature our different styles and amenities so our customers can see a physical representation of our work. Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? A good design is one that is aesthetically pleasing while maintaining flow and function for the customer. It blends the customer’s taste while maintaining those key features. What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? I like getting to know my clients. I then take their wish list and use it to create designs tailored to them. We input our suggestions to steer them into the design that is best for their needs and wants.

KRISTIAN BELL CONSTRUCTION When it comes to passion for the trade, commitment to innovation and dedication to client satisfaction, few custom home builders and remodelers outclass Kristian Bell Construction. The Houston-based firm, founded just six years ago, has quickly grown into one of the area’s most sought-after builders. Kristian Bell, the driving force and visionary behind the firm, could arguably attribute his success to a love for the profession, a talent for the profession and a desire to learn new and leading-edge methodologies within the profession. These elements, complemented by a design- and quality-focused approach to each project, have created a loyal and ever-growing clientele. “Our core principles center on pushing the limits of design and quality,” he says. “We relentlessly search for novel facets of new construction and adopt some of their component parts to influence our cutting-edge designs for future projects.” Bell, formerly a professional baseball player, grew up in a family with seven decades of combined home building experience. Uniquely equipped with insight into the business, as well as a talent for designing and constructing woodbased projects, Bell has risen seamlessly to each new project, from new custom homes to mid- and large-scale renovations. “Our team thrives on new challenges,” he says. “Our portfolio of creative designs has grown tremendously and gives our customers insights into the broad scope of designs we can adopt for their home.” Creating each unique project with the client wholly in mind, Bell says his clients are a major part of his team. “KBC would be nonexistent today if it wasn’t for the continued support of past clients, who so willingly and endlessly open their doors to show off their beautiful homes,” he enthuses. “Great people refer me to great people, and for that, I am grateful and fortunate.” TOP: A 1960s time capsule, KBC rebuilt this home to maintain the character and charm of its façade while modernizing it to a traditional design—all with the homeowner’s personality in mind.

What is inspiring you now? We are inspired by the coast, traveling and artwork; and color and accessories, which create drama in each space in new ways. They are key to keeping our designs fresh and ever evolving. What do you like most about your job? Doing a finished look: a few pieces of new furniture do not make a “wow” atmosphere. The budget needs to be established to get furniture, a rug, drapery, a mirror, art, accessories, plants and all the elements and layers for a good design.

THE DESIGN FIRM Houston design luminaries Kara and Eric Wuellner have been adorning many of Texas’s most glorious private residences for more than three decades. To accommodate the high demand for their handpicked furnishings and décor, as well as their multidisciplinary interior design services, the husband-and-wife duo established a sprawling 20,000-square-foot design studio and warehouse space. Today, The Design Firm, a recipient of Best Residential Design from ASID and numerous GHBA Prism awards, is a premier resource for Houston’s most discerning homeowners—a treasure trove of vibrant and intriguing furniture, fabrics, art and accessories. “Our firm is a one-stop shop for our clients,” Kara says. To ensure each custom-crafted ambience is representative of the client, the Wuellners and their team adopt an intimate research and discovery process. “In the first moments of being introduced to a potential client, the sales team asks a series of questions that identify them, almost on a psychological level. Through this approach, our designers are able to build rooms for them time and time again,” Kara explains. Despite the rapport established between The Design Firm and client, there is a significant amount of manpower that goes into each task, allowing them to accomplish 15 to 20 projects a month. “Most designers are able to do five projects a year. We are fortunate to have designers who keep our clients happy; and we’ve built a team comprising individuals who bring their special gift to the project,” she says. This uniquely equipped team includes an art department for hand-colored renderings, CAD department, install team, project manager, operations manager, master accessorizer, 10 designers, creative director, receiving and inspection department and faux finisher for furnishings. “We are able to cover a large diversity of different communities because of our team concept,” she says. “A team is good for this community.”

What are you working on next? In the coming months, we will be building a Silver Linings team in South Florida, from Miami to West Palm Beach.

SILVER LININGS Silver Linings allows you to move without ever having to lift your finger. The full-service organizational firm, established in Dallas, unpacks, puts away and accessorizes a new home quickly and efficiently—all from the hands of best-in-class moving and organizational experts. Mike Derkacz, owner of Silver Linings, explains what distinguishes his team of professionals. “Most of our team members are retired or are empty nesters. These are the kinds of people who understand work ethic, are self-directed and meet our strict security requirements. They get the job done,” he says. With a tried-and-true approach to structuring a move, Silver Linings offers a seamless process from start to completion. The morning of delivery, the Silver Linings team meets the moving company at your new home and begins to put your home back together. The team unpacks and organizes your belongings in every room and assists in arranging furniture and hanging artwork. They assemble basic electronic equipment, make beds, set clocks and do a final touch-up cleaning. They will even have your refrigerator restocked and coffee maker programmed, among many other special requests. Clients need to simply ask the team supervisor. Silver Linings is there to personally serve you and your family. The company’s success derives from its sound reputation, using word-of-mouth recommendations among clients as its primary source of business. “Referrals come from happy clients, and happy clients are the result of successfully making their new home 100-percent functional and fully accessorized in a very short period of time,” Derkacz says.

WOOD AND STONE ALLOW A MODERN DALLAS HOME TO EMBRACE ITS FORESTED HILLTOP SETTING AND CREATE A WARM BACKDROP FOR AN IMPRESSIVE ART COLLECTION. WRITTEN BY TATE GUNNERSON / PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAN PIASSICK

his area has a lot of energy, but at the same time it’s natural and peaceful, and this house reflects that,” says architect Cliff Welch of the Dallas home he designed overlooking White Rock Lake for a pair of art enthusiasts looking to start the next chapter in their lives. “Not only are there really nice views of White Rock, but the house has a real presence when you look at it from the trail that goes around the lake.” The owners—empty nesters with three grown children—envisioned a warm modern retreat that would embrace the views and create a backdrop for their extensive collection of artwork by the Dallas Nine, a group of artists active in Texas during the 1930s and ’40s, and other Texas Regionalists. “The art brings warmth into the house, and that was one of our goals,” says the wife. “We wanted the house to feel welcoming, and the team did a great job of selecting the appropriate colors and materials.” Concurs designer Allen Kirsch: “We were all on the same page that everything needed to be modern yet warm, especially since the clients’ taste in art is more traditional.” The new modern two-level home that the team created for the couple seems to emerge from the landscape, with rough limestone along the steeply sloping lot behind the house giving way to a more refined Lueders limestone at the hilltop in front of the home. “It’s a very complicated structure, because we were building into the hillside around existing vegetation,” Welch says, noting

that the lot’s triangular shape inspired him to design the home with a 15-degree shift between the main and master bedroom wings. “The entire house is positioned to maximize the views of the lake.” Building the cantilevered structure on such a hilly, wooded piece of land was not easy. “The floor and the roof cantilever out over each other, so there’s a lot of steel utilized that one can’t see,” says builder Steve Hild, who used a crane to hoist the massive structural beams up and over the existing trees. “Getting the beams to the site was very challenging.” In front, a Pennsylvania bluestone cobble terrace leads from the street to the entry, where a curved mahogany privacy screen introduces warmth and softens the home’s limestone massing. “We wanted the entry to be an experience,” says Welch. “There are faint glimpses of the lake through the screened fenestration at the entrance,

TX_LX37_KershWelch.indd 189

hinting at what’s to come.” Landscape architect David Hocker further enhanced those views by removing trees in poor health and selectively pruning others to frame vistas of the lake beyond. “Making sure that the property didn’t lose that shaded woodland aspect was important,” Hocker says. In addition, along the back of the home, a screened-in porch overlooks a deck and infinity-edge pool perched along the hill. “There’s this beautifully reflective pool surface that the house looks down onto, and then it drops off into a lush landscape,” Hocker says. While the landscape beautifully connects to its scenic surroundings, the entry acts as the perfect gallerylike setting, with ample wall space for paintings and sculptures. Here, an exposed structural steel I-beam that runs through the entire home and out to the back is painted a deep rust orange. “It never would have

occurred to me that an exposed steel beam would be attractive, but it’s one of our favorite elements in the house,” says the husband. “One of the benefits of working with a forward-thinking team is that they open your mind to endless possibilities.” Kirsch consulted on the beam’s bold hue selection and used it as an accent color throughout the interior. “The clients love orange and really respond to that color,” he says. To contrast the reddish tones, the designer looked to the opposite end of the spectrum, zeroing in on olive green, which he used for the large sofa and a pair of leather armchairs in the living room—a place the owners spend most of their time. “The natural greens beautifully mirror the trees and plant material outside,” Kirsch says. “I filled the spaces with comfortable furnishings in earthy hues— something different than the usual modern expression.” A mix of iconic pieces effortlessly pairs with cushy furnishings and custom-designed items. For instance, Eero Saarinen’s

Tulip table and chairs mingle with a walnut-topped coffee table and a Le Corbusier chair in the game room, while an Eames chair holds court in the living room next to a customdesigned side table by Kirsch. Furthermore, dining room chairs pop with orange leather, and the upstairs landing is enlivened with an orange rug. “The owners wanted color, which was a departure for me,” Kirsch says. “However, the entire project was very much a group effort.” Indeed, the owners, who were involved in the project from the get-go and attended nearly every design meeting, are quick to credit the entire team for the finished product. “We wanted a house that looked like it belonged here, and Cliff and the team did a fabulous job of designing something that fits this radically sloping lot in a way that reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater,” says the husband. “We have a beautiful home designed by a talented local team that showcases local artists. That really makes this place feel like it belongs here.”

The rear deck connects the main home to a standalone studio with large retractable screens for year-round use. A steel support beam was left exposed and painted a deep rust orange that evokes the home’s mahogany detailing. The swimming pool is by Pool Environments.

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES INSPIRED BY THE RAW BEAUTY OF URBAN SPACES, DALLAS ARTIST JOEY BROCK CREATES ABSTRACT WORKS FEATURING MINIMALIST ELEMENTS THAT REFLECT HIS SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE. WRITTEN BY LAURA MORGAN / PHOTOGRAPHY BY TERRI GLANGER

A

s the saying goes, “You can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.” But Dallas Abstract Expressionist Joey Brock may be the exception that proves the rule. His early life was spent on a 75-acre cattle farm in nearby Hamilton, but the challenging mixed-media pieces that comprised his most recent solo show, “Just Below the Surface” (at Craighead Green Gallery), owe their inspiration to far less pastoral landscapes—namely the graffiti walls and industrial warehouses of West Dallas. “I was always the quirky, creative one in my family,” admits Brock with a laugh. “I never really fit into the country lifestyle.” Utilizing photography, acrylic paint, graphite, paper, pencil and ink, Brock’s expressive works come to life in the form of multilayered pieces painted on Mylar. A closer look reveals abstracted images of his original-source material (the buildings and landscapes that he photographs and manipulates digitally) along with elements of Japanese minimalism. “The walls and the graffiti are raw and beautiful,” says Brock, who also works on canvas, clayboard and paper. “I’m intrigued by the vibrant color

juxtaposed with the old buildings.” Despite its urban genesis, the self-taught artist’s latest body of work is ethereal, ghost-like and mysterious, which seems especially fitting for his theme of modern alienation. “That was the catalyst for my recent show: being seen but not heard,” Brock says. And rather than rely on a traditional artist’s statement to frame his latest works, Brock decided to lead with a poem that challenged the viewer to engage with his work on an emotional level. “I didn’t want to be really technical about the process,” he says. “My goal was to create a visual dialogue with the viewer.” Though Brock delves into important issues (a past show grappled with the Gulf oil crisis), he doesn’t believe that one must suffer to create great art. “I do much better if I’m in a positive place,” he says. Currently, the artist is working on a solo exhibition at Desert Art Collection in Palm Desert, California, opening this December, and a nonprofit exhibition at the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts in Lubbock, opening August 2016; he was also recently selected for the 29th volume of Studio Visit—a series of juried artist books. “Art is such an outlet of self-expression for me,” Brock says. “It’s when I’m in my studio that I find the most peace.”

f ever there were interiors that look like the wellloved fashion designs of Tory Burch—functional pieces that balance contemporary style and nostalgia for the past—they’re the ones designer Ashley Goforth imagined for a young family in the West University neighborhood of Houston. Beyond the house’s transitional-style architecture are charismatic rooms filled with geometric pattern, pops of brilliant color, sumptuous texture and whimsical form. There’s also no shortage of metallic accents, which, like the way Burch’s iconic gold medallion punctuates her signature ballet flats, give the spaces just the right amount of glamour. “My client wanted something stylish and classic,” Goforth says of the wife, who appreciates the fashion designer’s feminine yet edgy style. “So I mixed rich fabrics and accessories with contemporary art and a few antiques to give the spaces depth and personality.” Goforth’s clients—a husband who works in finance and a wife who is a stay-at-home mom to three children—needed more living space but didn’t want to leave their beloved neighborhood. “West University is very child-friendly,” says

the wife. “It has great parks and a well-respected public school district. Our last house here was our very first house, but we outgrew it with the addition of our youngest child, who’s now 5 years old.” So when the couple saw a sizable home under construction and for sale in the neighborhood, they jumped on it. Once they had officially purchased the in-progress residence—conceived by residential designer Todd Rice of Rice Residential Design and constructed by builder Charles Kuck of Classic American Homes—the wife hired consultant Jennifer Frasier of Scott Frasier Homes to help her select the right interior finishes. “She encouraged me to do a palette that would be timeless,” says the wife. In the kitchen, Frasier used Carrara marble tile laid in a chevron pattern behind the stove and oversize subway tiles for the rest of the backsplash. There is also Carrara marble on the floors and a wall that acts as a backdrop for the freestanding tub in the master bathroom. Throughout the rest of the house, a medium coffee-colored stain enriches the traditional white-oak plank flooring.

Natural stone is displayed on the façade of a residence in Houston’s West University neighborhood. Designer Ashley Goforth blended traditional and contemporary styles for the interiors of the house, which was originally conceived by Rice Residential Design and built by Classic American Homes.

Once the architecture was complete and the finishes were in place, the couple commissioned Goforth to expertly dress the interiors. She too had timelessness in mind. “I always want to do something that’s still going to look good in 20 years,” says the designer, who balanced classic elements with contemporary touches. “It’s traditional but a little edgy.” For the casual dining area, Goforth painted fanciful French antique chairs a bright white and applied a coat of lacquer, and she changed the seat cushion fabric from a floral print to a stripe. The designer then chose a zebra-patterned wool staircase runner for the entry, where she placed a French antique grandfather clock that was a wedding gift from the wife’s parents. She also hung a large antique gold mirror and applied a grass cloth woven with metallic strands to the walls of the powder room. “It gives the space personality and a sort of wrapped quality,” she says. In the family room, Goforth outfitted the space with a custom ottoman that features a nickel-plated base and is covered with deep blue tufted mohair. An early-1900s painted French console sits across from the crisp white upholstery of the sofa and draperies edged with blue fretwork. For the dining room, the designer chose a massive round custom table with a brass-dipped base and surrounded it with chairs covered in leopard-print linenvelvet and cream-colored leather. “Here, the chandelier is a French antique,” Goforth notes. “It’s an aged piece that bestows history and weight to the space.” However glamorous the interiors are, they’re also entirely practical. “My clients’ children range in age from 5 to 11,” Goforth says. “So I used fabrics that are durable and easily cleaned. I specialize in that since I have young children myself.” Therefore, the reupholstered chairs in the casual dining area are covered in striped vinyl, and

The dining room showcases a custom table with a brass-dipped base and Goforth-designed chairs covered with creamcolored leather and leopard-print linen-velvet; both fabrics are by Old World Weavers from Stark.

the sofa and chair upholstery in the family room is made of a Sunbrella outdoor fabric. “The mohair on the ottoman is also treated,” says the wife. “You can spill and wipe it right off; it’s indestructible.” In Goforth’s opinion, the artwork that hangs on the walls is a crucial component of a house’s overall presentation. “Houston has a great art scene with respected museums,” she says. “Art really gives an interior individuality.” Therefore, an oil on canvas by Hunt Slonem gives the living room a lyrical quality, while a textured abstract painting by Sandi Seltzer Bryant grounds the dining room. A more personal artwork by Charles Schorre—another gift from the wife’s parents—draws attention in the casual

TX_LX37_Goforth.indd 213

dining area. “It was theirs, and I’d always loved it,” says the wife. “Schorre had Parkinson’s disease, and the piece is a bold expression of life. It’s a reminder to relish my own life as well as the blessing of our health.” Integral to the design was keeping a sense of balance: a quality that resulted in a lively mix of beautiful spaces. “These rooms are versatile and dynamic,” Goforth says. And her client couldn’t agree more. “This house is comfortable, yet there are pieces that have stories and there are pieces that are elegant,” the wife says. “It truly turned into what I wanted—feminine and classical, but with an edge. Ashley brings all of that to a home very easily.”

an Phillips, owner of D.H. Phillips, never planned to make furniture for a living, but now he can’t imagine doing anything else. After leaving music school, the now Dallas-based designer and artist held a number of odd jobs— from creating retail displays and playing back-up guitar to working for his father, an architect and carpenter who was an integral part of the 1980s revitalization of the Deep Ellum arts district. Thanks to his dad, Phillips was surrounded by carpentry and construction growing up and developed a lifelong fascination with woodworking at an early age. “My father built the house I grew up in and was always in his workshop,” he says. “I learned a lot from him.” Phillips, however, was more interested in studying woodworking that he could incorporate into his first passion— artwork—and it was this desire to learn how to create better sculptures that led him to Boston’s North Bennet Street School, which specializes in traditional trades and fine craftsmanship. “My dad had introduced me to artist H.C. Westermann, who made wood sculptures—many that included dovetailed joints,” Phillips recalls. “Wanting to learn how to make dovetails was what sent me down the furniture path.” Though his intention was to use the fine woodworking skills he learned for his sculpture, Phillips instead ended up enthralled with furniture. “I became passionate about furniture making, its history and the world of decorative arts,” he says. “It changed my whole outlook. I started to really view furniture as another type of art.” Phillips returned home, set up shop next to his dad and began honing his signature style—one-of-akind contemporary furniture pieces masterfully handcrafted with 18th-century techniques. “My taste is more modern,” he says. “I’m influenced by styles like midcentury, Danish Modern and Art Deco, but I also love classic designs, so I instinctively merged the two together.” Whether he’s carving a chair leg, chiseling a joint or planing a surface, most of Phillips’ work is forged by hand using the same tools that were available to period designers, and though his simple silhouettes are decidedly modern, they give way to hints of beautiful antique ornamentation—moldings, veneers and even secret compartments—that make each piece sing. Like Phillips’ primary choice of wood, mahogany, his furniture is designed with the future in mind. “With mahogany, the wood gets darker as time goes by and ages really well,” he says. “The material makes any piece look so elegant and I know my work will look just as sophisticated two or three hundred years down the road.”

F

or a New York City couple with four children, the prospect of moving back to the wife’s hometown of Austin was an ever-present dream. So when the couple reached a point in their careers that moving was a possibility, they put their plan into action by purchasing a swath of land fronting Lake Austin across from Mount Bonnell. “We envisioned a warm, comfortable open-concept home that lent itself to entertaining and had a strong relationship to the natural beauty outside,” says the wife. To begin, the couple assembled a design team that included Massachusetts-based architects Mette Aamodt and Andrew Plumb, New York designer Jennifer Vaughn Miller, and Maine-based landscape designer Michael Boucher. The group was anchored by builder David Dalgleish, the only team member who permanently lives in Austin. Dalgleish was a crucial choice based on not only his extensive knowledge of waterfront construction, but also his deep relationship with local craftspeople. “One of the things that was going to make this house special was the level of craftsmanship that would go into it,” he says.

TX_LX37_Dalgleish_220-235.indd 223

Because the couple desired a modern house with clean lines, the craftsmanship they sought was embedded in the details. “The quality is measured by the amount of detail in the project,” Dalgleish says. “It defines the home.” This detailed effort would bring soul to the residence, which was also a requirement. “The design had to have warmth,” says the wife. “We wanted our family to feel totally comfortable in the house and needed materials that could stand up to use and the elements.” Aamodt and Plumb accommodated the couple’s request with a two-story main home clad in limestone, ipe and slate. Nearly every room opens onto a patio, courtyard or balcony, and most look out to the lake. “We found a way to give them every opportunity to go outside,” Aamodt says. To ensure that plan, the architects worked with Boucher from the beginning. “We developed the outside spaces at the same time the inside rooms were being designed, and we attempted to fit them into the area’s park-like feel while adding a home and guesthouse,” says Boucher, who worked with former project managers Soren Deniord and Seth Kimball. Adds Plumb: “Our goal

was to stitch the house and the landscape together so that it wasn’t an abrupt transition from the inside to outside.” The front elevation, for example, includes a limestone walkway that moves under a canopy, along a stone wall and through the front door. Quality craftsmanship was also the motivation behind every design element inside the home. For all involved, that meant making every detail matter. “The clients wanted to invest in the artisans that would help make the unique elements of the house,” says Dalgleish. To this end, the builder used local craftspeople for every aspect of the residence, from the grain-matched quartersawn walnut overlay kitchen cabinets, to the bronze work on the main staircase handrail and front door, to the shimmering hand-hewn limestone on the façade and the diamond-finish plaster on walls throughout. “You can see the artisanal quality in the home’s outcome,” says Vaughn Miller, who viewed her own task in a similar manner. “I selected the furniture and art, commissioned lighting, and designed everything down to the trim on the duvets and the welts on the pillows.” Vaughn Miller’s degree in architecture allowed her to work accordingly. “I designed the home with its architectural context in mind, and how the clients would live in the spaces,” she says. “I wanted to enhance the architecture, not detract from it.” The designer also took her cue from the site and the water, choosing subtle abstract patterns, such as the shadowy wool-and-silk carpet in the living room that shifts color as the light moves across the room’s luminescent plaster walls. Twin living room sofas are upholstered in

In the formal dining room, Vaughn Miller chose another dramatic work by Maltzman, purchased from Russell Collection, which adds a colorful contrast to the walnut floors installed by French-Brown. A. Rudin chairs covered in fabric from Holland & Sherry surround brass table bases from Wyeth. An Italian chandelier from IMC-Gallery in New York lights the space.

velvet and backed with textured stone-colored linen pillows. “I used pattern judiciously because this house is about the site and the water,” Vaughn Miller says. While the house gracefully connects to the outdoors, the homeowners also needed multiple opportunities for entertaining, which Aamodt and Plumb allowed for with expansive terraces outside the living room and by the pool. “It was important to make the house flexible for different styles of entertaining,” Plumb says. “This was accomplished by designing distinctive areas that have their own scale, character and relationship to the landscape. They all hang together as variations on a theme but still feel individually interesting.” Formal gatherings hold court in the dining room, which Vaughn Miller outfitted with a custom table that fits neatly under the ceiling’s grid of

walnut beams, while the bar area includes sliding glass doors that directly connect to the pool for more casual entertaining; the swim dock features a cozy seating arrangement where one can take in lake views. When the busy couple needs some quiet time, the second-floor master bedroom provides an ideal sanctuary. “The view of the lake, framed by the balcony’s guardrail, gives the impression that the room floats on water,” Aamodt says. And that was the objective: to create a residence built upon the couple’s love of the setting, with the workmanship that would give them the best house in which to enjoy it. “These clients committed themselves to the house, to the local artisans, and to Austin,” Dalgleish says. “With them it was a legacy goal. They plan to stay here forever.”

Wood walls in a second-floor hallway offset an abstract piece by Pepa Leon from Rooms & Gardens in Washington, D.C. The multipane window wall is from Dynamic Architectural Windows & Doors in British Columbia; the door was fabricated by The Texian Shop, one of the many local craftspeople Dalgleish sought out for this project.

10/9/15 9:39 AM


Vaughn Miller opted for texture in the master bathroom with a 1960s Warren Platner bronze stool from Modern Drama in Chicago. Custom cabinets by Joseph Zambarano wear Linnea hardware from Alexander Marchant. Duravit sinks and Dornbracht faucets from Ferguson Enterprises rest on countertops from Architectural Tile & Stone. The tile flooring is by Ann Sacks.

Above: In the master bedroom, Vaughn Miller deftly mixed modern and traditional elements with an Edward Wormley for Dunbar wingback chair from Sputnik Modern, upholstered in a Calvin Fabrics textile, and companion ottoman covered in leather from Holland & Sherry. The rug is from Tai Ping Carpets. On the balcony, a Dedon hanging lounger is covered in linen from Holly Hunt. Left: The master bedroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vintage dresser from JF Chen in Los Angeles is illuminated by a sconce from The Urban Electric Co. The custom bed is upholstered in an Edelman Leather material and was fabricated by JM Upholstery in New York. A custom pillow in Dedarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soho-Brush fabric adds a graphic element.

The architects devised the glass-and-steel screen behind the bar in the game room, which includes a bar fabricated by Brian Chilton Design and Joseph Zambarano using materials from Architectural Tile & Stone. The diamond-finish plaster ceiling is by Acropolis Stucco; Vaughn Miller found the stools at Blackman Cruz in Los Angeles.

10/9/15 9:39 AM


For the game room, a sofa from Flexform in New York, covered in Holly Hunt linen, is punctuated with pillows in fabrics from Dedar, as well as Missoni Home through Stark. Mallory Pageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piece from Wally Workman Gallery also adds color. Sigurd Russell chairs from Lorin Marsh, also in New York, join a Fabricius & Kastholm coffee table from Galerie Half in Los Angeles that rests on a rug from Holland & Sherry.

The architects clad the house in a custom-cut antique Lueders limestone veneer fabricated by A.J. Brauer Stone that evokes the ripples in the lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface. Vaughn Miller completed the outdoor dining room with a custom table from Weatherend Estate Furniture in Rockland, Maine, and Janus et Cie chairs. The landscape was installed by Tait Moring and Associates.

Relaxation is complete on the swim dock thanks to a sofa and armchairs, both by Carlos Motta from Espasso in New York, covered in Sunbrella linen. B&B Italiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canasta coffee table is the centerpiece under a metal awning fabricated by Dennis Steel.
