FARM LUXE Gather vintage heirlooms, wooden vessels, handmade ceramic dinnerware, and natural textiles for a polished farm-to-table look as warm as it is welcoming.
The organic texture of nubby linens, striped or fringed for extra detailing, hits all the right rustic notes. Cambria in a polished or Cambria Matte™ finish brings natural beauty to any space without the maintenance. Explore more designs at CambriaUSA.com.
Cambria® Oakmoor Matte™, with its sweeping wave design evoking wood grain, becomes a durable farmhouse tabletop when crafted into planks.

I’ve always enjoyed the process of storytelling through visuals and mood boards. Here’s a peek at what’s on my office wall this season.
LITERARY WORK I recently spent time in a home that’s unforgettable. It told an enchanting story of the woman that lives there: what she collects, where she’s traveled, what she’s reading and who she is. The home’s narrative was entirely original—a reflection of her dreams and desires. Beyond design and decoration, homes essentially contain and convey our stories. In this special EYE ON DESIGN/GOLD LIST 2018 issue, we salute the many architects, designers, builders and artisans across the country who imaginatively create and contribute chapter and verse. What a beautiful design story, indeed.

Welcome to the January/February issue of Luxe Interiors + Design Austin + Hill Country! In October, Luxe and Bercy Chen Studio held an open house at Sky Crown Terraces, two identical and adjacent homes designed and built by Bercy Chen Studio and furnished by Scott + Cooner. Attendees enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while touring the monolithic-style structure, courtyards and habitable flat roofs. Plus, we joined Ann Sacks for its grand opening event, which was held at the company’s new Austin showroom, located at The Shoppes on 5th and Lamar. Ann Sacks and Kohler greeted over 125 guests, which included local interior designers, architects, bloggers and more. Finally, in November, we celebrated The Best Night Ever event at The Mansion with Austin NARI, who revealed the winners of the 2017 Contractor of the Year and Buzz Awards. The evening featured live music by Suede and Jane Ellen Bryant. Enjoy the issue!

BEHIND THE SCENES GET TO KNOW A FEW OF OUR TALENTED CONTRIBUTORS AS THEY TALK ALL THINGS DESIGN. PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ
Photographer / New York
KAMALA NAIR Writer / London
If you could interview anyone, who would it be? Emily Brontë—she’s such an enigma. What books have impacted you the most? The great British novels of the 19th century. I love Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and I, obviously, also have a special place in my heart for works by the Brontë sisters. On your interiors wish list: A really ornate antique over-the-mantel mirror, a writing chair that’s beautiful yet comfortable enough to sit in for hours, and a dramatic patterned wallpaper (and the guts to use it). Is there anything especially inspiring that you feel is happening in design today? The trend toward more sustainable and eco-friendly design. Dream assignment: To push myself to the limits of my fear by diving with great white sharks in South Africa—and then write about it.
Photographer / Dallas
Where do your creative inspirations come from? I would say many of my influences come from trips to a museum, flipping through one of my art books or watching a beautifully shot film. Top three prized possessions: My passport, my collection of art books and my vintage Hasselblad camera. Most fascinating person you’ve ever met: My grandfather. He had this amazing ability to captivate you with a story; he could take a mundane normal day and make it sound like a grand adventure. If money were no object, I would buy… Lifetime airline passes, because who wouldn’t want to travel to Paris just for the weekend to see an amazing exhibit at the Louvre or grab dinner in Rome. In what city would your dream shoot take place? Buenos Aires. I think what has always drawn me there has been the South American influence on old-world European architecture. I love the dramatic use of color and texture.
APRIL HARDWICK Writer / New York
Is there a certain type of design that inspires you more than others? I really appreciate items that are handmade with an artisanal touch. Current obsession: Basically anything in the tabletop category, especially earthenware with a reactive-glaze finish. Presuming you had $20,000 to blow, what would you splurge on? I would renovate our guesthouse on Shelter Island, or build an exquisite treehouse for my daughters and then outfit it with happiness. Who is the most interesting person you’ve ever met? Martha Stewart; she’s super savvy and an incredibly professional woman. Best advice you’ve ever received: Go after what you want but always be kind in the process. If not a writer, I’d be… A news reporter or textile designer—or maybe even both!
gao headshot: courtesy alice gao. vignette photo: nathan schroder. schroder headshot: courtesy nathan schroder. hardwick headshot: courtesy april hardwick. nair headshot: angie dykshorn.
Whose work are you influenced by? I adore designer Anna Karlin’s work; both her lighting and her design and art direction are amazing. Ideal assignment: This is a tough one to answer since I have a passion for so many subjects! I would love, though, if a client hired me to shoot a travel story solely with a Rangefinder 6-by-7 film camera. Any takers? Wish list obsessions: A few things that come to mind are Karl Zahn’s Cora pendant light, a Poul Kjærholm honed-marble coffee table and a vintage Jean Prouvé Standard chair. Favorite book on your nightstand: Ellsworth Kelly: Plant Drawings. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? Take more Chinese language classes in college and be diligent about studying it. Words of wisdom: Don’t define yourself by what you consume but instead by what you create.

RADAR / NEW GUARD ECHE MARTINEZ ⊲
ASHLEY WADDELL AND COURTNEY WHATLEY ▼
San Francisco | echemartinez.com
Vero Beach, FL | oliviaobryan.com
WHY WE LOVE HIM: Argentinian-born designer Eche Martinez’s masculine, dramatic interiors showcase a global perspective while nodding to the diverse and rich culture of the Bay Area. He believes in using shape and color to drive design, instead of dipping into what he calls the “pattern pool,” and cites David Hicks, Jean Louis Deniot and Zaha Hadid as major influences.
WHY WE LOVE THEM: Sister-act Ashley “Olivia” Waddell and Courtney “O’Bryan” Whatley teamed up to form the design firm Olivia O’Bryan in 2005 and have since perfected their signature coastal-cool look. Their homes are full of visual surprises—with neutral palettes that pop when punctuated by vibrant soft goods. ON THE HORIZON: The duo is excited to be working with architects Moor, Baker & Associates on a creative, understated interior in the exclusive luxury enclave of Windsor, Florida. Plus, they’ve got a residential project in the works on nearby Jupiter Island, which will showcase a more tropical vibe.
ON THE HORIZON: Martinez is literally setting sail with a new design–a private unit aboard MS The World, a luxury condominium at sea. The ship travels the globe, changing routes every year, so Martinez’s designs could be in Alaska for the summer and in Sydney for New Year’s Eve. IN HIS WORDS: “For me, new apps and websites are key to spotting the genesis of trends and color palettes. Using graphic black and white, ‘millennial pink’ and ombre effects as visual backdrops are all things I noticed online years before they started making a splash in our industry.”
⊳ CHARLOTTE LUCAS
Charlotte, NC | charlottelucasdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: A devoted fan of graphic wall treatments, Charlotte Lucas is a master of feminine-glam style that runs the gamut from traditional to mod. No wonder she cites such “fearless” female designers as Sister Parish, Madeleine Castaing and Dorothy Draper as muses. ON THE HORIZON: Lucas is looking forward to introducing new fabric and wallpaper lines through House of Harris, the recently launched coverings company she cofounded with her sister, Liz Harris Carroll. Offerings will be available through Travis and Company in Atlanta and Supply in Austin. And more is to come—this year Lucas will be consumed with exciting coastal projects in South Carolina.
MARGARET NAEVE ▲
Houston | mnaeve.com
WHY WE LOVE HER: Mixing muted palettes with unexpected large-scale contemporary art, Margaret Naeve strikes a sophisticated balance between soft and edgy. Inspired by her travels, Naeve is currently obsessing over early-20thcentury French and Scandinavian furniture and believes in a curated, collected home. ON THE HORIZON: The designer continues to introduce cutting-edge brands, such as Apparatus, Martyn Thompson Studio and Egg Collective, to her shop M Naeve, and subsequently to the Texas design market. Up next, she has a new project in the works on Houston’s much-sought-after North Boulevard. IN HER WORDS: “I look at selecting items for clients as a global shopping experience. I’m not a go-by-the-rules type of designer; I’m more intrigued by creating a ‘feeling.’ ”
IN HER WORDS: “If I could wallpaper every room in a client’s house I would! I never tire of pattern. The more the merrier for me.”
⊳ MEGAN MOORE Denver | dado.design
WHY WE LOVE HER: Employing monotone palettes and a Zen-like restraint, designer Megan Moore takes a refreshingly minimalist approach to interiors. Her thoughtful spaces favor clean lines, calming neutrals and natural, tactile materials. ON THE HORIZON: Moore is looking beyond the Denver residential scene this year with interior projects in Manhattan and Seattle in the works, giving her a new bicoastal perspective that informs her evolving aesthetic. IN HER WORDS: “Style as it relates to any specific design period doesn’t really interest me. Instead, the things people want to surround themselves with are interesting to me. I think about how people will feel in the space and how our interior environments impact us on a daily basis.”

IN THEIR WORDS: “We love our projects to feel lived-in and collected so that the clients can experience an immediate connection to the home.”

RADAR / NEW GUARD ⊳ UMA STEWART
South Orange, NJ | umastewart.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Utilizing natural light, layered neutrals and rich jewel tones, Uma Stewart designs boho-luxe interiors for the worldly, modern family that are meant to be lived-in. ON THE HORIZON: This year, Stewart will introduce a new collection to her eponymous textile line that is rooted in vintage Indian pieces sourced from her travels. She’ll take this blending of cultures one step further, too, bringing French and Indian style to two grand Victorian homes in progress. IN HER WORDS: “My design perspective is based in a well-read, well-traveled point of view, punctuated with counterintuitive touches such as original art or vintage pieces.”
MEGAN PAPWORTH AND DAWN TERRY Scottsdale, AZ, and Temecula, CA | einteriors.design
WHY WE LOVE THEM: Daughter Megan Papworth calls Southern California home, sourcing unique items from local makers, while mother Dawn Terry holds down their Arizona roots. ON THE HORIZON: The mother-daughter team are working on a complete renovation of a 14,000-square-foot, Tuscan-style home in Scottsdale.
ELIZABETH KRUEGER ⊲
IN THEIR WORDS: “Thanks to social media and networking, we’ve been able to grow the business. We are constantly inspired by the people around us.”
Chicago | elizabethkruegerdesign.com
WHY WE LOVE HER: Elizabeth Krueger is a decorating daredevil who has been known to wallpaper a ceiling with dramatic patterns. It’s those innovative moves with prints, color and texture that define her spaces and create environments that reflect both her aesthetic and the client. ON THE HORIZON: Krueger is a longtime fan of Michael Abraham Architecture and recently signed on to design a dream project with the firm: residential, new construction in the historic suburb of Riverside, a tony area in Chicago. IN HER WORDS: “My best work happens when I’m not forcing myself to be creative. That’s when I feel the ideas come out of the corners of my mind.”
⊳ JASON DALLAS
WHY WE LOVE HIM: A visual storyteller, Jason Dallas utilizes the Pacific Northwest’s natural surroundings to inform his environmentally aware interiors. Don’t mistake him for just another flower child of the west, though. Although he was raised by creatives—his father once converted a school bus into a mobile home!—he actually pursued a technical degree in architecture.
⊳ KAREN AND GUY VIDAL
Los Angeles | vidaldesigncollaborative.com WHY WE LOVE THEM: Karen and Guy Vidal’s spaces are as sunny as the Southern California landscape they reflect. The design couple’s imaginative use of colorful tile and pattern mixing has become their signature. ON THE HORIZON: Previously known as Design Vidal, the firm is rebranding as the Vidal Design Collaborative this year to reflect the creative team at the growing studio. IN THEIR WORDS: “Our fearlessness has allowed us to push ourselves beyond our boundaries and be unfettered by rules.”
ON THE HORIZON: This year, Dallas is working on a brick-and-mortar retail component to his brand and is excited to showcase a 19th-century Victorian home and a houseboat renovation, as well as several multifamily commercial projects. IN HIS WORDS: “Each design tells a story, from the colors on the wall to the collectibles on the shelf. Mixing an individual’s existing possessions with new ‘on-trend’ colors and elements can completely update and modernize any space.”

DESIGNING WOMAN ATLANTA-BASED INTERIOR DESIGNER, AUTHOR AND LIFESTYLE EXPERT DANIELLE ROLLINS JOINS FORCES WITH FABRIC BRAND BRUNSCHWIG & FILS FOR A MUST-WEAR CAPSULE COLLECTION. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID CHRISTENSEN
Whether she’s sipping a French 75 at a lawn party or playing fetch with her dog, designer Danielle Rollins cuts an elegant figure, thanks in part to the retro-chic silhouettes she favors. Now, Rollins is merging her passion for fashion with her fondness for classic fabrics in a new collaboration with Brunschwig & Fils. Here, Luxe catches up with the creative multitasker. How did the collaboration come about? I’ve always loved companies that preserve craftsmanship and tradition, and Kravet, who owns Brunschwig & Fils, does that, which is why I’ve always had an affinity for the brand. I debuted a collection of clothing made out of Liberty of London prints in 2017. So, when a regional Brunschwig & Fils showroom approached me about doing a pop-up shop, I knew I wanted to use some of their iconic fabrics, such as Le Zebre, to illustrate my love of interiors and fashion. Your pieces are named after legendary designers and hostesses, such

as Dorothy Draper and Lilly Pulitzer. What is it about these grand dames that continues to inspire? Each of them had such a strong sense of identity in the way they lived and the way they dressed. One of the hardest things is to remain true to yourself when everything in the media is telling you to change. I like that each of these women had an inner style compass. Describe the collection. We made three jackets and two different clutches in the Le Zebre and the Verel de Belval prints. The insides of the jackets are lined with Liberty of London fabric for a quirky, custom touch. Next, we’re doing
caftans for summer. Personally, it’s what I want to wear in the Atlanta heat. So, then, do you tend to design with yourself in mind? Absolutely. I’m always searching for those elusive staples that are missing from my closet. How many times do you find an item of clothing you love, then the designer pivots creatively, and you can’t find it anymore? I was looking for a more masculine approach to dressing. Men have it so easy— they find a pant they like and it’s there every single season. The pieces in this collection are meant to be flattering and kept in your wardrobe season after season.

BUTTERFLY EFFECT MERGING A MAKER AESTHETIC WITH THE LATEST TECH, DESIGNER DAVID NOSANCHUKâ€™S CONCEPTUAL LIGHTING IS POISED TO TAKE FLIGHT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID CLEVELAND
120 / luxesource.com
11/21/17 1:50 PM
Illuminating ideas as well as rooms, today’s lighting designers aren’t just making fixtures—they’re creating high art that tells a story. For his Butterfly Asteroid series of one-of-a-kind lights, New Yorkbased multidisciplinary designer David Nosanchuk embraces a unique hybrid of digital technology and handcrafted methods to weave an intriguing tale about the ever-changing natural world. “Currently, I think people are more interested in narratives than process,” the designer says. “They want to pause and ponder a relationship they may not have considered, like how a butterfly and an asteroid could possibly be related.” While it’s true that, on the surface, the winged insects have little in common with the extraterrestrial rocks, they do have one similarity, according to Nosanchuk: “Both have flight patterns that are the result of metamorphosis.” The series began when Nosanchuk was asked to design a piece about woodworking in the digital age for The Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia in 2016. “I had done a lot of traditional woodworking, and I became interested in the idea of using technology to make a sculptural light,” he says. Made from quarter-sawn steamed beech veneer, the butterfly wings are laser-engraved on both sides, resulting in a tissue-thin, translucent appearance, while their bodies are cast from solid bronze, lending heft to the delicate wings. The asteroid was modeled after a real one and built to scale using hand-applied fiberglass, giving it an opaque glow and a dreamy moon-like quality.
One of the Butterfly Asteroid table lamps by designer David Nosanchuk (left) emits a soft, diffused glow. Shown opposite is a detail of the fixture.
It’s no wonder the light caught the discriminating eye of renowned Milan-based gallerist and tastemaker Rossana Orlandi, who asked Nosanchuk to create three additional fixtures, which are variations on the same theme, for her exhibition at PAD London. “One day in July, David arrived at my office without an appointment,” recounts Orlandi. “It was a lucky meeting: He showed me one butterfly, and it was amazing. Then, he told me the concept, and I thought, ‘why not!’ ”
That positive reaction seems to be spreading to these shores: Nosanchuk recently displayed another set of unique Butterfly Asteroid pieces with Hostler Burrows at Design Miami and is set to show at FOG Design+Art in San Francisco and TEFAF New York in May. For his part, the designer is grateful for the acknowledgment but not necessarily surprised. “I think people can find beauty in the story I’m telling because it’s not overly intellectual or alienating as a piece of art,” he says. “It has universal appeal.” luxesource.com / 105

THE INSIDER LAUREN WILLIAMS
QUICK HITS ABOUT GOINGS-ON IN THE LOCAL DESIGN INDUSTRY.
From her Dallas home, Lauren Williams taught herself the discipline of fiber artistry. Fast-forward three years, and her 82,000-plus Instagram followers are one reason her monthly tapestry collections sell out through Lauren Williams Art + Home, her online fine art and home decor studio, which also offers photo prints, canvas paintings and home accessories. We caught up with the busy creative to learn more about her story. laurenwilliamsart.com
Room & Board is set to open a nearly 12,000-square-foot showroom on McKinney Avenue in the Knox District this spring. Sigh of relief: The location will offer plenty of parking spots.
Update your stack of coffee table tomes with Texas Modern: Redefining Houses in the Lone Star State by Hannah Jenkins, which hit shelves in November. It’s a voyeuristic look at uniquely different—and equally beautiful—contemporary Texas homes.
Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams was among the roster of retailers that set ground in Fort Worth when the Shops at Clearfork opened in September. Much of the company’s slipcovered and upholstered furniture, case goods, rugs, artwork and lighting can be purchased direct from the floor.
Ann Sutherland, president of Dallasbased Perennials Fabrics, has collaborated with celebrity Los Angeles designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard (above) on a collection of eight bold prints. The hues span from subdued beiges to vivid reds and sapphire blues and are available in 29 high-performance, stain-resistant fabrics.
How did you discover fiber art? I made my first piece in 2014. I wanted to fill a blank wall using something with texture, and I didn’t have the patience to learn macramé, so I dyed individual wool strands to create a canvas but with movement. It was Labor Day weekend and hot, and I was in my East Dallas garage dipping strands into dyes. What dyes do you use? Initially, I used pretty much anything you can put on a strand of fiber, from food to natural dyes. At one point, I was stealing and diluting paint from my children’s art box because it was the color I needed. Now, I’ve refined my materials and work with an eco-, animal-friendly mill in Wyoming to customize my own signature yarn that can withstand my dye techniques.

Do you have a muse? Blank walls inspire my artwork. The pillows and throws help take that art beyond the walls with coordinating fabrics.

A veteran home flipper, Lakewood designer Sarah Hargrave transformed a former 1960s attorney office into The Collective, her business headquarters and boutique. The space is filled with vignettes of lacquered and reupholstered furnishings, Turkish rugs, glass and metallic accessories, vintage lighting and paintings by Dallas artist Jenn Thatcher. “I prefer decor to have meaning and be carefully curated, so everything in the store—from the vintage fretwork club chairs to the antique chinoiserie melon jars—have a very specific story,” Hargrave says.

INSIDE EDITION LUXE TAPPED TALENTED LOCAL DESIGNERS FOR THEIR THOUGHTS ON ONE OF THE SEASON’S MOST POPULAR CONCEPTS: HYGGE.
“We curate what makes our clients feel hygge. Do they prefer light or dark spaces? Waxed-leather sofas or a silkvelvet chaise? Light pouring through wall-to-wall windows or layers of textural sheers? We interpret their needs and source pieces from local Austin shops like Caffrey’s Furniture, Black Sheep Unique and Brian Chilton Design.”
“Ultimately, your home should be a place of comfort—a retreat from the world. We create places of solace for our clients, such as a secluded reading nook for enjoying a glass of wine and a good book. Kuhl-Linscomb in Houston has everything you need to create a hygge-infused space.”
“Without question, my signed John Lennon piece titled Family Tree represents hygge to me in so many ways. It’s a simple one-line drawing created by one of the world’s most eccentric, creative beings and symbolizes relationships between people, including several generations of my family. ”
“Our designs include lush textures, comfortable furniture, throws, snuggleworthy pillows and natural elements like wood floors and stone walls. But none of these are truly hygge unless shared with loved ones, so we design with gatherings in mind, with pretty places to converse and play games.”
“For hygge, I love embroidered afghans, fluffy throws and blankets my husband, Eric, and I have collected during our travels. They are perfect for snuggling and reading a book. The best part? You can never have too many. For us, blankets represent hygge, with comfort, relaxation and laughter.”
MATERIAL WORLD Until recently, Austin builder Jan Sotelo had constructed homes using mostly only traditional materials: concrete, steel, glass and wood. But everything changed when local designer Darwin Harrison asked him to bring to life the drawings he made for his new residence with partner Robert Buckner.
That’s putting it mildly. For the project, Sotelo worked with sculpted-aluminum wall tiles, polished- and burnished-concrete floors, solid-glass bricks, Douglas-fir trim and millwork, Texas Leuders limestone flooring and exposed-steel accents. The exterior alone shows off items like quarry blocks and a metal panel typically used on commercial buildings. The list of materials spans from the oldest known to man—rammed Earth, used in an office—to one of the newest: paper stone, which appears on countertops and base trim. Another office is outfitted with red Roman brick, while the kitchenette is housed in a glass box. To meld the disparate elements, Sotello treated each connection as a separate project. The number used in each room was also limited. “When you look at any spot, you see only two or three materials at one time,” he says. “It doesn’t feel overwhelming.” For the builder, the 11-month project was a lesson in finding harmony in contrasts—which led him to term a new style of home: Darwinism. “It’s reflecting of the owner’s name,” Sotello muses. “This project is more about how it came to be than about what it is.” moderndb.com

Sited on a coveted 1-acre lot in Shoal Creek, the 4,500-square-foot home is defined by a central 75-foot glass hallway connecting the living areas. “The model for the house is what everyone thinks of when drawing one as a kid: a triangle on top of a square,” says Sotello, who founded Modern Design + Build with his wife, Kelli. “Darwin and Robert were drawn to the classic barn shape, so they wanted to be very much traditional—but get crazy with materials.”

GALLERY CHAT LIKE THE DESIGN INDUSTRY, IN THE WORLD OF ART COLLECTING EACH NEW YEAR COMES WITH NEW POSSIBILITIES. HERE, THREE LOCAL GALLERISTS SHARE THEIR PREDICTIONS FOR 2018.
▲ RACHEL H. STEPHENS
WALLY WORKMAN GALLERY, AUSTIN Looking ahead: The local market has held steady over the last few national bumps; however, we have seen the current political climate affecting buyers’ confidence in the past six months or so. Because of this, we feel it is even more important to exhibit work with an emotionally charged, engaging aspect that goes beyond interior design. Loving right now: Abstract work from Mallory Page and Diana Greenberg (Midnight in Harlem I, above) are in high demand. We predict this will continue, along with a strong collector base for our figurative artists Patrick Puckett, Ian Shults and America Martin. We are also excited to add the abstracted cloudscapes of Peter Roux. wallyworkmangallery.com
▲ LILIANA MOLINA
Looking ahead: People are buying art not only to enjoy the pieces but also as an investment. That is why we represent master artists from all over the world, including Fernando Botero (Colombia), Mr. Brainwash (France), Sophia Vari (Greece; Rive Nuptiale, above) and Julio Larraz (Cuba). We hope to see more art brought to public spaces, as we believe it can help unite humanity and connect worldwide communities. Loving right now: We’ve discovered Costa Rican artist Oscar Saborio. He hasn’t had the exposure he deserves, and we’ve enjoyed supporting him. His works have been extremely successful since we began representing him. artoftheworldgallery.com
SAMUEL LYNNE GALLERIES, DALLAS Looking ahead: I think the popularity of “art about identity” will continue in 2018. The Dallas collector is not only focused on the trends of the art world but also on their emotions being tied to an artwork. Loving right now: We discovered Metis Atash last year at Art Basel in Miami. Her signature Punk Buddha artworks (left) are sculpted in fiberglass, covered with acrylic paint and meticulously adorned by hand in upwards of 20,000 Swarovski crystals. The sculptures are inspired by ancient Daoist teachings but also reflect her respect for haute couture and contemporary art history. Each is named for an iconic figure in fashion and art, from Basquiat to Balmain. samuellynne.com

GOLDEN ERA GETAWAY Kati Curtis
I love imagining Humphrey Bogart lounging with his cigar in this room. But I can also see someone using it today.
Casablanca The Golden Era was a time when the handcrafted blended with the modern. Moroccan culture is also focused on craft and doing things in a time-honored way, but at the same time adapting that into modern life. That’s why I based my room upon a hammam, an ancient bathing tradition that continues to this day. Designing a room inspired by Casablanca has the potential of being busy and overwhelming. But my goal was to create a truly serene space. I kept the color palette fairly muted and selected faucets from the Keefe® Collection in a matte black ﬁnish. There’s an inherent beauty in the faucets themselves—solid and architectural. They really pop against the tile.

OFF the WALL WE’RE INSPIRED TO ENTER THE NEW YEAR ARTFULLY— WITH THE HELP OF FOUR OF-THE-MOMENT ARTISTS WHO ARE DEFINING A NEW ERA OF EXPRESSION.
WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH
Texas artist Jerry Cabrera’s vibrant, thought-provoking works are a celebration of light, color and motion, as seen here in Fluttering Cape, one in a series of Cape Paintings, which removes the figures out of bullfighting scenes to instead focus on the natural, graceful movements of the capes themselves. Absent in his work, therefore, is any reference to the violent aspect of the sport; instead, he uses bold, bright colors to illuminate an otherwise overlooked component of the spectacle. With Cabrera’s energetic spirit in mind, we present an assortment of dynamic items certain to inject a lively punch into the home. 1stdibs.com

PICNIC IN TALL GRASS ARTWORK PHOTO: COURTESY LISA GOLIGHTLY.
For Portland, Oregon-based artist Lisa Golightly, painting is a method of storytelling, and high-gloss enamel is the vehicle through which she creates her calm yet captivating narratives that invite viewers into the intimate moments portrayed in her work. Using found photographs as inspiration for her paintings, Golightly depicts casual social interactions and scenes that she can relate to personally, even though she doesnâ€™t quite know the figures pictured. Shown is her work Picnic in Tall Grass, which inspires us to imagine a casual outing amongst friends who were caught unaware in a moment of repose. lisagolightlyart.com

Kelly Beeman is no ordinary fashion illustrator—her abstract portraits nod toward those of Picasso while pushing the boundaries of traditional feminine forms. For this particular work, commissioned for designer Jonathan Anderson’s fashion label, JW Anderson, Beeman played with shapes and silhouettes that explore the body in a more androgynous—and lessexposed—way. With its monochromatic palette and avant-garde silhouettes, Beeman’s painting offered the perfect muse for this curation of edgy items featuring linear lines and contrasting materials portrayed in black and white. kellybeeman.com

STARING AT THE SUN ARTWORK PHOTO: COURTESY KIRSTEN BEETS.
Sun, sand, water and nature influence South African artist Kirsten Beets’ work. In Staring at the Sun (shown), Beets takes her interest in examining the way people interact with the great outdoors to all new heights, literally. Rendering it from a sweeping overhead vantage point, the artist brings a day at the beach to life with oil paint on paper—capturing nostalgia-rich details and colors that make the piece feel less like art and more like a beautiful memory. Her sun-kissed depiction of leisure influenced our selection of dreamlike pieces here. kirstenbeets.com

LACANTINA DOORS Innovating … Expanding … Transforming
Opening spaces, changing perspectives, engaging the outdoors—no architectural element has such a profound impact on how homeowners live and interact with the outdoors than sliding door and window systems. Enter, LaCantina Doors, the industry-leading designer and manufacturer of folding and multislide door and window systems that combine vast glass panels with state-of-the-art hardware. “We create innovative open space products that allow us to take advantage of new technologies,” vice president and general manager Lee Maughan says. LaCantina’s products are made to measure from its 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in San Diego, California, ensuring high-level functionality and a ﬂawless ﬁt and ﬁnish. Using “best in glass” materials, LaCantina’s systems come standard with low-e, dual-paned tempered glass for improved energy efﬁciency. “We thoroughly test all of our products for air/water/structure and thermal performance to ensure they meet and exceed our customers’ needs,” Maughan continues. As wall systems continue to drive architectural design, LaCantina continues to conceive some of the most aesthetically striking and environmentally sound door and window systems in the world.
A PHILOSOPHICAL APPROACH We design innovative products that enhance lifestyle. This is accomplished by creating products that open spaces, allowing for more natural light and fresh air to promote healthier more comfortable environments. Clean, contemporary designs, innovative features and high quality characterize the folding, multisliding and swing door and window systems from LaCantina.
As the pioneer and industry leader in open space products, we offer the most evolved systems that deliver the best quality for the best value.

WITH INNOVATIVE DESIGN AS A COMMON THREAD, THESE STRIKING SEATING SELECTIONS ARE HARDLY THE USUAL SUSPECTS.
WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALICE GAO
BENJAMIN VANDIVER BENJAMINVANDIVER.COM
Sawkille Co. marries… Traditional ideas with modern lines to synergistically create compelling furniture that is always thoughtful and subtly commanding. This particular bench reminds me… Of every country home that I’ve ever dreamt up, and although I have never envisioned a piece quite like this, it immediately holds sentimental value. Seating is the genesis of any design: It assigns the purpose of the room. I tend to look for classic pieces that also have a bit of sculptural appeal, such as this one. Luxury is… Not having to play all of your cards at once, and this bench has that inherent ease. The walnut used is sturdy, and the craftsmanship is exceptional. Even in its raw state, walnut is superior to other woods due to its grain and character, but the ebonized finish here adds a crispness to the overall design that elevates the work even further.

& co. rugs throughout: agra knot in kingfisher (shown here) and byzantine by armadillo
LINE UP THE PIECE: The Pench THE DESIGNER: Sawkille Co. FIND IT: sawkille.com
THE INSPIRATION: Handcrafted in New York’s Hudson Valley, The Pench came about through both humor and observation when two of its Rhinebeck-based design atelier’s traditional pieces merged into one—resulting in The Pench becoming its own functional and sculptural object. Substantial, timeless and fresh, this original design delivers a big dose of style and remarkable versatility.

PARTNERS IN CRIME THE PIECES: Vik Chairs THE DESIGNER: Stewart-Schafer FIND THEM: stewart-schafer.com THE INSPIRATION: Three trips to Iceland served as both the source and the impetus for the Vik chairs, the latest creation from multidisciplinary design firm Stewart-Schafer. The company’s principals, Christine Stucker and James Veal, had a midcentury shape in mind for the chairs, which were handmade in Brooklyn, New York, and they cleverly infused them with a very forward and funky approach that merges old and new.
JESSICA HELGERSON JHINTERIORDESIGN.COM
Conceptualized and styled… Is the immediate vibe I get when considering Stewart-Schafer’s work. I could see them adding set design to their list of accomplishments, as there is an avant-garde quality even in their simplest pieces. When our team is looking for seating… We look for beautiful lines that speak to us. This chair, in particular, feels like a “boudoir” bedroom kind of chair; though, I could also imagine it in a modern desert house looking out at a spectacular view through a giant window. The Vik chairs… Also feel very 1960s to me, like a rock star with giant glasses and bell-bottomed jeans would definitely own this design. For me, it’s all about… The juxtaposition of objects, so that each one gets a chance to either shine or support the others, like a beautifully patinated wood table against a sleek simple sofa, or, in this case, a design made from a sleek, single curve of steel melded with fluffy, organic fur. The balance just works.
11/21/17 1:40 PM
LOW DOWN THE PIECE: Chloé Stool THE DESIGNER: Ave Home FIND IT: avehome.com THE INSPIRATION: Embracing the less-is-more concept of design, Ave Home fashioned the Chloé stool, a homage to the uncomplicated yet chic style of French fashion. The subtle stitching on the supple leather seat breathes an understated elegance while the fluid shape of the base is inspired by neoclassical design, a marriage that has become a signature of the New Orleans-based furniture house.
WESLEY MOON WESLEYMOON.COM
It’s clear that Ave Home… Is very much inspired by their hometown of New Orleans, considering the brand’s French influence and melodious mix of old-world-meets-trendy styles. For me, a statement piece… Doesn’t have to be a big gesture. I’m not drawn to objects that beg for attention, but rather designs that are well-crafted with graceful details that reveal themselves slowly over time—ones that speak of quality or provenance. Quiet elegance and carefully edited components, like the thoughtful stitching on Chloé’s leather sling seat, go much further for me. The shadowing and light… Shone here on the Chloé stool accentuate its sexy curves and stunning detailing. It brings out the beautiful caramel color of the leather and showcases the ballet slipper-inspired, gold-leaf ornament where the arches of the base meet. Luxury is the trifecta of… Quality, hand and function. It occurs when an everyday object becomes elevated through its finishes and design elements.

CHECK MATE THE PIECES: Brice and Alban Barstools THE DESIGNER: Jayson Home FIND THEM: jaysonhome.com THE INSPIRATION: Hand-carved, highly grained and full of character, the Alban (center) and Brice barstools are statement-making both alone or as a group, braiding modernity with warmth—a Jayson Home trademark.
NATALIE MYERS VENEERDESIGNS.COM
Luxury today is more… About seeking out a select collection of carefully sourced, thoughtfully crafted, holistically designed items that imbue your home with meaning. Jayson Home… Is a go-to destination when I’m looking to add a layer of richness to complete a space. There is a sense of worldliness to the materials and colors they choose for their seemingly familiar forms. I can always count on them to source original, timeless and tasteful items. As stand-alone pieces… One would never guess that these are barstools. I like the psychological tension created by the user wanting to sit on them while also feeling that they are something elevated, not meant to be sat on—that rarely happens in the world of interiors. Modern sculptures… Or even a simplified totem pole is what these designs are reminiscent of— a relic filtered through the lens of Nordic minimal sensibilities. They feel handmade by a sculptor with the utmost control and restraint of ornamentation.
11/21/17 1:40 PM
VANESSA ALEXANDER ALEXANDERDB.COM
Minotti is absolutely synonymous… With luxury Italian design. Their whole line is impeccably designed and crafted with the greatest attention to style, comfort, detail and quality. Rodolfo Dordoni’s partnership with Minotti has been incredibly successful, adding a very signature modernity to the line. I’m obsessed with seating… And I like every room to have a standout chair, be it new or vintage. An amazing chair can bring a room to life, whether it’s a statement piece that takes its place as an architectural moment of beauty or one of great comfort that alludes to cozy private reading moments. The Halley chair… Transports me to sitting on an expansive veranda in South America, caipirinha in hand. The design is at once commanding yet understated, sharp yet casual. Low-key luxury… Is the new definition of elegance.
LAWS OF LEISURE THE PIECE: Halley “Outdoor” Chair THE DESIGNER: Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti FIND IT: minotti-la.com THE INSPIRATION: Minotti designer Rodolfo Dordoni took cues from the sinuous attitude of design that was so artfully expressed in the 1970s when concepting the Halley chair. Its organic shape was contrived with the intent of enjoying life equally indoors or en plein air, encouraging sociability and inviting relaxation in a way that only Italian furniture can do.

FREE AGENT THE PIECE: Rocking Horse THE DESIGNER: Iota FIND IT: iotaproject.com THE INSPIRATION: Armed with a powerful social mission, bespoke materials and an eye for edgy design, Iota gives a whole new—and stylish—life to the art of hand-stitching, a technique employed in all of their handmade objects. The Rocking Horse, for example, features a yarn “saddle” and is bound to incite a certain playfulness appropriate for modern and fanciful spaces alike.
Iota… Designs and produces incredibly special pieces. Every work is a collaborative effort involving designers, craftspeople and manufacturers. They also train and employ women in communities with high rates of unemployment all while making storied, striking designs—a win-win situation. I often aim for… A style that is both refined and laid-back at the same time, not unlike Iota’s aesthetic and unique approach. Understated… Is the new sophisticated. Even though it’s simplistic… The Rocking Horse stool looks and feel substantial; the chunky braids and knits, in juxtaposition with the delicate tassels, emit the ultimate look of luxury. This piece adds a fun expression of artistic license to the mix. Hand-knitted yarn… Is the focus with all Iota furniture, as demonstrated here on the bench seat. The material, along with the function of this design, appeals as much to adults as it does to children by evoking a certain childhood nostalgia. The silky, black tassels add an extra bit of whimsy.

STEVEN COOPER Just as the right combination of flavors can set apart one’s cuisine, an aesthetic blend of materials can do the same in a kitchen build or remodel. With that in mind, we tapped the expertise of Cooper Pacific Kitchens’ Steven Cooper, whose attention to detail helps him create luxury kitchens that are worthy of being the home’s main course. Read below as he discusses his strategy for crafting this efficient-yet-beautiful kitchen designed in collaboration with interior designer Pauline Moghavem. cooperpacific.com What was your main goal for this space? To create a handsome, functional kitchen for a large family with many areas for prep, serving and seating at a secondary island. We also wanted to incorporate an interesting mix of materials that worked with Pauline’s strong design sensibility throughout the home.
A La Cornue range sets the tone for layering in elements such as antique blackened steel on the custom range hood and Opal White natural quartzite on the backsplash and perimeter countertops.
How do you select finishes and fixtures? We love drama! It’s important to consider, though, how each material will perform around the elements it will certainly encounter, including water, oil, light, heat and fingerprints. For instance, a sink area will be heavily exposed to water, so that would mean a porous material might not be the best option for that space.

Tell us about your approach to using an array of materials. Really, we look for ways to establish a consistent thread between the materials running throughout the space. The conversation between polished and matte textures should have purpose in its intention. Committing to bringing that story throughout the entire space, to balancing each element’s importance, is what makes a mix of styles successful.

Designer Brad Krefman outfi tted this texturally rich and tonal Aspen, Colorado, kitchen blueprinted by Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects. “Performance was important—particularly for the countertops—so we had durability in mind,” Krefman says, “but we also used materials that are honest and rich in character.” The lineup? Copper mesh in lieu of glass on the upper cabinet door fronts, precast-concrete perimeter countertops, a Taj Mahal quartzite countertop on the island and a custom range hood featuring plaster and reclaimed oak. bkinteriordesign.com
SURFACE APPEAL Williams Sonoma Home’s Parisian-designed Bastille kitchen island is an authentic nod to French chateau style, with its hand-built, solid mahogany frame and classic maple, mahogany and cherry veneers. A black granite inlay, yellow birchwood cutting board and brass details are the perfect finishing touches. williams-sonoma.com
Unique tile steeped in artisanal character adds punch to flooring and backsplashes alike. Here, the unglazed Natural Zellige tile by Clé (shown left) is handmade with terra cotta, while Ancestral Iron (right), from the Eastern Earthenware collection, is hand-formed from terra cotta and fired in a traditional beehive-shaped kiln. cletile.com

This bathroom in Corona del Mar, California, was a balancing act for interior designer Tiffany Grayce Harris. “Every decision was meticulously made,” she says. “It was important for me to take a risk to create something exciting and unexpected.” Streamlined shiplap seamlessly conceals wall lockers and serves as a foil for the textured reclaimed-barnwood-base cabinet and the natural stone countertop and flooring—a rustic-meets-refined design formula repeated with aplomb in the bathrooms on the following page. tiffanyharris.com

“Since the sink here is such a strong element, I kept the remainder of the bathroom simple with plenty of negative space, white-painted wall paneling and an absence of art.”
“WE WANTED TO GIVE THIS BATHROOM A LITTLE ‘OOMPH’ SO WE ADDED SHIPLAP, WHICH ALSO SHOWS UP IN OTHER AREAS OF THE HOME. THE WOOD ACTS AS A NICE SPLASH GUARD, TOO, AS IT IS A LOT MORE DURABLE THAN PAINT.” “THIS BATHROOM NEEDED TO BE CHIC, MASCULINE AND DURABLE.

Color delivers instant impact. Case in point: this Houston reading room designer Selena Mackay enveloped with Phillip Jeffries’ African Raffia wallpaper in Turks and Caicos Orange—the perfect foil for punchy pillows atop a sweet settee, vintage Lucite tables and an Oushak rug. Read below, as Mackay divulges her tried-and-true strategy for bold spaces. studiomackay.com Incorporate your favorite hue. When clients have a passion for a particular color, I love to play with it in a room. This way, it becomes a reflection of their style.
Think large-scale. Go bold with color on larger surfaces, like a sofa, a rug or wall art. I like to match the more substantial pieces—such as the sofa and draperies—for a unified look. Papering the ceiling also dresses up a space.
SETTING THE STAGE FIVE TOP INTERIOR MINDS IN TEXAS OFFER THEIR EXPERT INSIGHT INTO HIGH-IMPACT LIVING SPACES WITH PLENTY OF PERSONALITY.
CATHY KINCAID HUDSON Do you have a favorite backdrop color? White is always a good choice. I like Farrow & Ball All White for kitchens and bathrooms and Clunch for woodwork. Use an eggshell finish on walls and a high-gloss on wood for durability. Spending tip: Always buy the best-quality upholstery. A frame can be re-covered over and over—it’s the fabric, not the construction, that becomes worn. cathy-kincaid.com
Name an oft-overlooked design element. Lighting! Eye-level illumination is key to keeping everyone looking great, while overhead lights should only be used to showcase objects or for fill; lamps that provide ambient glow should be in every room of the house. Color crush: The most dramatic color I’ve ever used is Benjamin Moore’s Black 2132-10 in an entry hall with a black-and-white marble floor, which we then accented with gold. janshowers.com
The top items homeowners should splurge on are... One cool piece of art and a high-quality cocktail table. They will carry your other pieces and enhance the way they look. What industry trends are you noticing? I see vintage pieces becoming more widespread as well as warmer metals such as bronze and brass. We’re also moving toward fewer things and more editing. kevinspearman.com
Favorite dark paint color: Benjamin Moore Midsummer Night 2134-20. It’s a wonderfully rich chocolate brown with a warm olive undertone. How important are antiques? Antiques or vintage pieces are an absolute must to create a place that feels authentic. I prefer to mix many periods together so that a room feels accumulated over time. You should never be able to pinpoint when a space was done. fernsantini.com
What element is often overlooked? Texture. It’s usually an afterthought, but it prevents a room from falling flat. I think about how texture can add balance, comfort and visual appeal. Current trend: More designers are carving out intimate spaces, which I’ve been doing for years—adding a comfy chair in a corner for an instant reading nook or placing a throw or oversized pillows on the bed for an inviting oasis. gingerbarber.com

Trends are ever-evolving, and one of the latest is a play on scale and color palettes. “Right now, it’s about big and bold hues,” says designer Morgan Farrow, who outfitted this Dallas lounge with a vibrantly patterned rug for instant drama underfoot. “For me, it’s about one big wild moment.” The designer softened the masculine tone of the rug’s large-scale geometric print with plush seating and pillows. In a similar move, she suggests turning to decorative cement tiles that let the floors do the talking or incorporating chevron or herringbone patterns, like those found in wood flooring, to impart an adventurous yet timeless look. morganfarrow.com
ALL IN THE MIX
Builder Marvin Morris and partner Steve Hullinger designed and built this French Provençal-style Houston residence with a mélange of old and new elements, from flooring and lighting to mirrored panels. The home’s designer, Meg Lonergan, echoed that approach when selecting the furnishings. Here, Morris and Lonergan discuss the harmony between their roles as well as the strategies that led to a beautiful outcome. morrishullinger.com; meglonergan.com
Discuss your plan for furnishing this dining room. ML: Bringing in burnished golds and metals made it warm and glam. The wife is young, modern, polished and dressy, and the whole house reflects that mix.
You each have expertise that was crucial to this home. Explain what made the project a success. MM: A successful collaboration is born out of mutual respect. It’s important to make an effort to give others working on the project room to be creative and to let pros be pros.
Tell us about your goal in mixing old with new in this space. MM: The flooring is an offbeat mix of gold-tone, 18th-century limestone tiles from Lyon, France, and new locally sourced white limestone for a fresh, eclectic feel. We also incorporated an 18-inch thick arch doorway as well as windows set back as much as 30 inches for a sense of permanence. The intent was to create layers of finishes, as if they have been added over time.

EYE ON DESIGN / OUTDOOR
TAKE IT OUTSIDE A well-executed outdoor living space encourages time spent lounging, barbecuing and entertaining outside—and establishing a distinct mood for each of these areas makes them all the more inviting. “We find a lot of respite outside, so there’s a real joy to forging alfresco spaces that are comfortable,” says landscape designer Laura Tyson, who looked to this Dallas home’s refined aesthetic as inspiration for its landscape. Read on for Tyson’s tips for enticing exterior design. tysongardens.com If there’s no natural view, create a vignette. I like to employ low ground cover, shrubs and ornamental trees at eye level along with canopy trees for their scale. Seat-height walls, open pergolas and arbors, and elements like water or fire can also help create a complex, rich landscape. Consider artificial turf. Today’s is not the AstroTurf of the 1970s—it’s much more real-looking and softer. It’s great in small lots that are shaded by large trees; it needs far less water (just for cleaning and cooling), and it’s permeable. Display pots with tall trees or shrubs. Topiaries or potted evergreens draw the eye up and accentuate the architecture. The verticality complements such elements as French doors or handsome arches.
Rising just above the water fronting one Lake Austin property is a dock under a simple metal awning. Outdoor chairs and a sofa beckon guests to this cozy spot carved out by builder David Dalgleish, who is accustomed to the challenges of constructing structures that weather sun and water. Below, Dalgleish offers insight into materials that stand the test of time. dalgleish.net Turn to ipe wood, which is built to last: Although we use teak from time to time, ipe is a little more durable and stable—it’s so strong, we have to use special saw blades and drill bits when working with it. It lasts longer than most lifetimes, and it’s beautiful, whether you keep the brown color (re-seal it every year) or let it weather to silver. Go for painted steel: For structures like pergolas or supports for walls of screened porches, it is less usual to use stainless steel and more common to use painted steel. We covered this steel awning with epoxy paint so it would blend with, rather than contrast, the wood. Look to Leuders limestone for floor surfaces: It’s extremely dense and slower to have lichens or moss grow on it, making it highly durable. It comes out of local quarries, with a rich variation in golds and dove gray.

LOCAL EXPERTS BRING THE DESIGN DISCUSSION OUTDOORS WITH THEIR STRATEGIES FOR CREATING INVITING SPACES EN PLEIN AIR.
7urban At the Dallas home of residential designer Robert Trown of Robert Trown and Associates, Inc., wroughtiron gates lead from a courtyard to a pool area, which he designed to be “like its own room,” Trown explains. “There’s a glimpse of the water, but it’s secure from dogs and children; it’s closed-off without closing off the view.” Creating visual depth, the gates frame a spillway wall with mosaic tile separating the pool and spa, and the red-clay tile roof adds texture. We asked Trown to reveal his methods for masterminding such functional and enchanting outdoor spaces. Tell us about the hardscapes here. Each of the hardscape areas was designed to function as a party space. In the front, the courtyard can be tented and set with eight tables. But I also crafted romantic, intimate spaces, like an outdoor seating area connected to the courtyard.
OASIS Do you prefer natural or faux materials? I choose not to use manufactured ones—always natural stone, gravel and reclaimed materials. If you spend a fortune on antique beams or floors inside your home, it’s a waste of money to go faux outdoors. What’s your strategy when it comes to deciding what plants to incorporate? I try to bring in reclaimed plant materials, because I find they have a more interesting character than nursery stock; they add a perfect tone, a nice shape and an instant age to a new property. I also make an effort to layer by incorporating plants that have varying leaf sizes and textures. I gravitate to large agaves, exotic palms, gnarly junipers and spruces. I also like to introduce pops of color by planting flowers for all seasons.

There is something elemental about going outside. For instance, I had a dinner party recently. We could have stayed inside, but instead we had wine by our outdoor fireplace under the moonlight and the canopy of our Live Oaks. The crunch of gravel, the crackle and glow of the fire, the touch of comfortable seating, the sound of water and the fragrance of the pinon wood all added to a major sensory and healing experience. teneyckla.com
People are investing more in their outdoor spaces, as there seems to be a current trend back to healthy living in terms of eating, spending more time outside and being more active. I’ve found people want outdoor rooms that extend their homes, kitchens and living spaces where they can entertain and their children can play. Outdoor living is vital to the whole house. It’s not just a yard—it’s another room. moredesignbuild.com

We all seek a sanctuary where we can come home, relax, unwind and enjoy being outdoors in a great setting, both when we are alone and entertaining. Yet beyond the pleasure a quality garden provides, a properly designed landscape also increases the value of the home. For timeless landscape design, we take into consideration composition, color, texture, light, shade, shadow, water and sound. mesadesigngroup.com
Many new homes contain a significant amount of glass, so nearly every room looks out to the surrounding outdoor spaces. Because families and friends gather in these exterior areas, they need to be well designed, just as any indoor rooms are. The design of an outdoor space should encompass a sense of place while also relating to the house. Comfortable furniture, beautiful rugs, pottery and fountains can help make these areas inviting. haroldleidner.com

EYE ON DESIGN / ARCHITECTURE
A chopped Sisterdale limestone veneer helps connect this residence to its Hill Country setting. “It’s vernacular architecture—not so much for sentimental reasons but to celebrate how early settlers used this stone with German smear mortar joints,” says architect Ted Flato, who offers sage words of advice below. lakeflato.com View the outdoors as another room. It changes the way you think about materials and ties the interior and exterior together with some flow. What we do on the outside informs what we do inside. Know that windows erase the line between inside and out. This is especially true when the glass extends down to the ground. An interior can be small or modest but still feel big with large windows. Weigh the options for beamed ceilings. Weathered wood creates a particular character, while a quiet wood grain—or even plaster—is a good choice when you don’t want the ceiling to stand out too much.
DESIGN THAT SHINES
ARCHITECTURAL ICONS OFFER A FEW WORDS OF WISDOM FOR FASHIONING HOMES IN THE LONE STAR STATE AND BEYOND.
MICHAEL G. IMBER
LARRY E. BOERDER
What’s trending now? Modern and contemporary architecture. Clients seem to like the casual, lesshierarchical nature of these floor plans. Top request: Most clients seem to have a distinct interest in the house being as small as it can be given the program they want to accomplish. A strong interest in maintaining a feel of intimacy seems to be a big motivator. dkarc.com
Critical exterior element: Materiality. Does it blend with the landscape or contrast with—or even deny—it? Is it handcrafted artisanal, or is it machined and industrial? What material are you loving right now? I’m leaning toward plaster. I like its plasticity—you can shape, bend and sculpt it. And it can be sexy—light just loves its subtle dimples and curves. michaelgimber.com
Favorite architectural style? I’m a traditionalist. I love when people argue about whether a house we designed is actually an old home that was remodeled. Current trends: I’d like to do more in the Georgian and English Palladian styles. I did these early in my career, and they’re relevant today with a movement among 20-somethings toward traditionalism. larryboerder.com
What makes an exterior interesting? Elements that are animated—like windows, shutters and awnings— can bring life to a building. Thoughts on kitchens: In lieu of walls completely lined with cabinets, homeowners are opting for more windows or art in the kitchen. Butler’s pantries or prep kitchens also allow owners to stow away items and reduce clutter. wilsonfuqua.com
Are you noticing any trends? There seems to be a movement toward midcentury modern. We do see some architects designing transitional and traditional homes, but our focus is contemporary and modern. Choice material: I love the thinness of steel for windows, which maximizes the amount of glass you can use. There are many color options available now. larue-architects.com

Architect Craig Stiteler of Craig Stiteler Design equipped this Houston home’s rustic French exterior with materials that stand up to the area’s humidity while imparting a timeless look. Clay brick instead of concrete, as well as integral plaster hand-troweled in lieu of synthetic stucco, will age more gracefully and with a nice patina. Stiteler’s advice for choosing materials? Vet all the options ahead of time by building sample boards, and use natural light as your guide, viewing each option throughout the day before making final selections. “We usually stay on the warm side of the color palette,” the architect says.
11 12 APPROACH fresh
Architect David Stocker opted for a contemporary riff on classic Georgian style for this Dallas house, evident in patio columns with pared-down capitals, painted-brick walls, a slate roof and paint-grip steel gutters. “It’s a good illustration of a simple palette bringing more visual appeal,” says Stocker, who fielded our questions about transitional architecture. shmarchitects.com Why do you think transitional architecture is appealing to homeowners? Architecture has historically been divided into two separate camps: The first of these is classical and traditionalist, while the second is modernist. Transitional style holds there is greatness in both viewpoints. Within transitional design,
uniting materials and controlling the palette are both very important aspects. The biggest mistakes often result from doing too much—we all need a good editor. How do you keep transitional styles looking current? Bringing in natural light is a good way to keep a design looking young and timely. But we are also happy to reintroduce materials, textures and colors that are not modern so the home has soul and spirit. Transitional style is like a breath of fresh air that continually revives us. What’s your design ethos? I believe architecture is similar to a great book, play or movie: It is meant to be discovered with a few plot turns and surprises encountered along the way.

Architect Tobin Smith designed this copper, limestone and glass San Antonio structure brought to life by Truax Construction Inc. Because of a ravine on the site, the design and the construction required absolute precision. “The roof, doors, windows, walls and ceilings—all the parts of the house—had to fit within an eighth of an inch,” builder Jeff Truax says. tobinsmitharchitect.com; truaxinc.com

Designer Denise McGaha understands the importance of construction in good design. This Dallas breakfast nook, which marries the husband’s love of antiques with the wife’s desire to mix in modern style, required design ingenuity on the part of McGaha and her team and construction know-how to hang the massive 19th-century French mirror over the antiqued mirror panel. She reflects on the project below. denisemcgaha.com Make a first impression: We wanted the residence to be exciting from the moment guests walk through the door, and incorporating this layered-mirror effect in the breakfast area, which is within direct view of the front entry, gave us that opportunity. The reflective layers make the space feel glamorous, and the process of hanging such a heavy mirror over the antique pane proved to be an engineering feat that required construction knowledge. Table the discussion: The 60-inch Saarinen table is an iconic piece, and we gave it a graymarble top to bridge the older materials in the space while making the mirror-on-mirror pairing feel comfortable. Take a seat: The design of the built-in banquette is rooted in tradition—think 1950s Chevrolet cars with channel tufting on a leather seat. The result is not fussy and was the perfect solution for this space. We covered the banquette in an indoor-outdoor Perennials velvet.
BUILT TO LAST
TAKE NOTE AS THESE CONSTRUCTION PROS REVEAL THE INS AND OUTS OF A SUCCESSFUL HOME BUILD, INCLUDING THEIR GO-TO MATERIALS.
Splurge on… Windows! Light and bright is not a new phenomenon, but suppliers have engineered some amazing new products to open walls and corners. This helps us create a great open floor plan, maximizing the best views of the property. What’s trending? A clean, contemporary look. This applies to elements from the exterior features to the furniture, and it has been requested in every market in Houston. frankelbuildinggroup.com
Key to remodeling success: We like to tell a consistent narrative from the first time you experience the house— seeing the home in the distance—to when you drive up to it, walk to the front door and enter inside. What are clients considering regarding kitchens? How the kitchen and informal living area interact. This reflects how people live today: entertaining friends and being with family in the nerve center of the house. hullhistorical.com
Sound investment for homeowners: A solid structure. Not investing in the bones compromises everything and could mean doors that won’t close, non-functioning mechanical features or worse. What’s critical for a successful remodel? Fully remedying any weak areas of the structure, not just placing a temporary fix in hopes material finishes will disguise imperfections beneath the floor or behind the walls. escobedogroup.com
Adding value: Kitchens and bathrooms are common spaces the whole family will use. The design and functionality of these spaces define how a home is experienced. Elemental ideas: I love working with authentic textures—leather, various metals, woods. It’s also fun to connect a home’s space and its family to the natural surroundings, with features like floor-to-ceiling windows bringing the outdoors in. coatshomes.com
Splurge-worthy item: Wood floors. We’re using a lot of French oak; a 7-inch-wide plank as a standard, and some engineered. Top requests for bathrooms: Soaking tubs and more open showers. We’re not doing massive bathrooms. And we’ve been using a really cool material that is like Venetian plaster but is water safe. This way, it creates a continuous look in the home if plaster is used on other walls. davidjamescustombuilder.com luxesource.com / 175

I LOVE BENJAMIN MOORE’S BONE BLACK FROM THE WILLIAMSBURG COLLECTION, ESPECIALLY AS A TRIM COLOR.” –MICHAEL AIDUSS, MICHAEL AIDUSS INTERIORS + ARCHITECTURE NEW YORK AND MONTCLAIR, NJ
11/21/17 2:19 PM
–JENNIFER POST, JENNIFER POST DESIGN NEW YORK
“Invest in large custom closets with technology. This is a fantastic place to start and end your day. A closet is a sanctuary; the perfect place for those private moments of organization we all need.” –SUZANNE LOVELL, SUZANNE LOVELL INC. CHICAGO
“Natural elements are having a moment. People are responding to a mix of woods and the simplicity of stone. The look goes hand in hand with both decoration and social awareness of our environment.” –CHRISTOPHER COLEMAN, SANCHEZ + COLEMAN STUDIO MIAMI
“If a room demands a higher ceiling, raise it. If it needs better windows, replace them. You can add fabrics and furniture, but if the architectural space isn’t elegant, it’s all for naught.” –ANNE GALE, WISEMAN AND GALE INTERIORS SCOTTSDALE
IT IS SO WORTHWHILE TO HAVE CUSTOM HARDWARE AND BEAUTIFULLY MADE PANELS OR SHADES FOR YOUR WINDOWS.” –BETSY BURNHAM, BURNHAM DESIGN LOS ANGELES

“BIANCO DOLOMITI IS THE ONE MATERIAL I USE CONSISTENTLY. IT’S A CLEAN WHITE STONE AND SUPREMELY ADAPTABLE TO A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS.”
11/21/17 2:20 PM
I HAVE A PASSION FOR ANTIQUE 19TH-CENTURY DOUBLE DOORS WITH ORIGINAL HARDWARE AND BEAUTIFUL PATINATED WOOD. THE LOOK REALLY SETS THE STAGE FOR A ROOM.” –DANA LYON, THE REFINED GROUP PHOENIX
“Animal-skin prints are captivating, glamorous, and mix in with virtually every style. Skin rugs are ancient yet can go from classical to modern, depending on how they are used.” –JESSICA LAGRANGE, JESSICA LAGRANGE INTERIORS CHICAGO
“Our go-to trim color is Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Gray. Its light, chalky blue-gray works wonderfully with antiques and natural materials.” –BROOKE GIANNETTI, GIANNETTI HOME SANTA BARBARA, CA
“I am cautiously optimistic that the design pendulum is swinging back to an appreciation of antiques and ornamentation. Some of this is a natural reaction to the saturation of megamodern, white, beige and gray interiors. I also think that, subliminally, people want a return to something cozier and with a connection to the past.”
–ELLIE CULLMAN, CULLMAN & KRAVIS ASSOCIATES NEW YORK

As a business owner, interior designer, wife and mom, Amanda Stephenson does it all. Much like her company, Gingerwood—a firm that offers interior design, renovation, construction, project management, furnishing and home adornment services for high-end homes and multifamily developments. With on-staff general contractors, including husband Brett and father Joe, Gingerwood is a true one-stop resource for all things building and design. Whether offering creative solutions for a room’s function, customizing furniture with local artisans or injecting a palette with surprising textures and colors, Stephenson and her team pride themselves on consistently upping the bar. “Our creative process starts with the ‘inspiration,’ whether a client’s geode collection or an Hermès charger,” she says. “The story of finishes, materials or fixtures evolves naturally from there. My job is to elevate the client’s inspiration into a flawless, comfortable, truly personalized space.” Working in the residential communities of Austin, such as Spanish Oaks, Westlake Hills, downtown Austin, Tarrytown and Barton Creek, as well as up-and-comers Rosedale and Hyde Park, Stephenson says the days of the big Tuscan interior have been succeeded by Spanish Colonial style, with many midcentury modern requests in the mix. “All of our projects have an eclectic flair,” she says. A self-starter, Stephenson knew early on she wanted to create a niche, high-end firm. Following her instincts, she founded Gingerwood in 2010. Seven years later, she and her hardworking team ensure clients a positive experience from start to finish. “There are no cookie-cutter formats, nor do we force our vision,” she says. “Through our expertise, we guide each client toward their ideal design.”
Milestones in your firm’s success? Seven years ago, I never expected to have a team of eight—that is a huge milestone. This growth has led to expanding into another office, and since, winning multiple local and state design awards. What inspires you?

It’s your home, where you recharge, live and love. The design should reflect what inspires, soothes and welcomes you home. And it never hurts to spice it up with splashes of the unexpected. 1. Outside, a custom sectional invites views of Austin’s Capitol and Lady Bird Lake. Cool gray, all-weather textiles envelop plush cushions to form a sophisticated and timeless color palette. 2. The custom, curved sofa and walnut-and-acrylic waterfall cocktail tables sit atop a map-of-Austin area rug—signaling the owner’s move from the Hill Country to a high-rise. A chrome-and-crystal watch-face light fixture spans the ceiling above. 3. Multiple vignettes define dining, lounging and conversation nooks in one open space, making optimum use of valuable square footage. 4. Book-matched Carrara marble frames a floating vanity composed of a lava-stone slab, blacklacquered cabinets, and hammered-bronze basins. Toe-kick motion-sensor lighting and a backlit mirror add to the design’s sophistication.

PARK PLACE MODERN MATERIALS PUNCTUATE TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS IN A DALLAS FAMILYâ€™S PARK-ADJACENT HOME. WRITTEN BY JENNIFER SERGENT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY NATHAN SCHRODER

iven a rare opportunity to build within view of prime parkland in Dallas’ University Park neighborhood, a couple with three young boys wanted their new house to be just as special as its verdant setting. Achieving that required the efforts of a tried-and-true team, with designer Leslie Jenkins’ classically minded interiors pairing with architect David Stocker’s signature steel-framed windows and doors. “The owners wanted a modern, fresh element running through the home,” Jenkins says, “but with a traditional feel, so it would be a little more timeless.” Keeping that balance in mind, the designer incorporated ceiling trim and crown molding in areas such as the living room, dressing its floor-to-ceiling windows in thick linen drapery. Throw in curvaceous furnishings and a marblepatterned fireplace surround, paired with a Claire Crowe Collection fireplace screen, and the space achieves a salonlike effect. “In the back of my mind, I always aim for a fresh take on Parisian style,” Jenkins says. A few steps away, in the open kitchen and family room area—which overlooks the pool terrace and a park entrance—she continued the crown molding around the kitchen cabinets and added a beam-like detail on the ceiling over the family room. “It’s an expansive area with seemingly no beginning or end,” says the designer, who kept the materials white to produce a clean look while also breaking up the space. Stocker sought a similar past-present mix, blending familiar gestures such as a gabled roof and a center-hall entry with huge glass doors that lead from the front yard to the pool terrace. “David uses modern materials but never abandons traditional elements,” says builder Robert Elliott, who applied smooth-troweled cement plaster on the home’s exterior and limestone trim on the windows. Elliott also engineered a slider gate that opens to the park so the owners’ children can easily come and go.
“THE OWNERS WANTED A MODERN, FRESH ELEMENT RUNNING THROUGH THE HOME BUT WITH A TRADITIONAL FEEL.” –LESLIE JENKINS
“With the fountains and the kids fishing or playing soccer, the setting is beautiful,” the builder says. “That gave us a unique opportunity.” The architect strived to capitalize on this idyllic locale by orienting every space outwards while maintaining privacy where necessary. “The homeowners have a nice view of the park, but outsiders could also have a nice view of the family if you’re not careful,” Stocker jokes. Thus, the second floor has glass-enclosed niches that bump out from the core to take in the scene, while the views below open to a patio, pool and covered terrace, all enclosed within a tree-lined fence. The structure’s L shape also ensures the residence is just one room deep at any point, meaning every space feels connected to the outdoors. Further bridging inside and outside, the doors between the family room and the terrace are rarely closed. “This house makes us spend more time outdoors,” the wife observes. Yet the sophisticated interiors are also a pleasing incentive to remain inside, where the couple can keep an eye on the children while they play in the backyard. “Our home feels so fresh and comfortable,” the wife says, referencing the aqua-, cream- and melon-hued rooms. “Amid all the craziness with our young sons around me, the soft palette is soothing.” She need not worry about spills either, as Jenkins covered all the seating in durable Perennials indoor-outdoor fabric. Colorful antique Oushak rugs in the high-traffic entry, too, are easily cleaned. Jenkins and senior designer Haley Powell looked to the wife’s personal aesthetic for direction as they selected the home’s furnishings, art and lighting. “She is very feminine and informal,” Jenkins says. This translated into geometric patterns over floral prints as well as abstract paintings in lieu of romantic landscapes. For the artwork, the duo turned to Blue Print, a home furnishing store Jenkins co-owns, measuring each space and trying out pieces that would fit until finding the right ones—eventually settling on works by artists like Arienne Lepretre and Joey Lancaster. The lighting options, on the other hand, posed a particularly unique challenge. “It’s a puzzle, especially in an open house like this in which you can see all of the light fixtures so easily,” Jenkins says. She overcame the challenge by selecting pieces that tell a story and complement each other, particularly by mixing metals where possible, with brass and black uniting many of the elements. Above the kitchen island, for instance, the brass pendants feature a hint of blue, while the entry lighting has a black finish to echo the front-door frames and custom stair rails. Jenkins and Powell kept the homeowners in mind every step of the way while outfitting the interiors, and the couple gave the designers a wide berth to do what they saw fit—an arrangement that worked beautifully. “I didn’t want to lead them in any direction,” the wife says. “I trusted them, and they totally wowed me.”

A FLOURISHING VENTURE IN DALLAS, A HISTORIC PLASTERWORKS STUDIO ENTERS THE MODERN ERA WHILE MAINTAINING ITS OLD-WORLD CHARM. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JUSTIN CLEMONS
12/12/17 2:25 PM

â€œWe are constantly thinking of how to improve or do things better,â€? says Mark Marynick (top, left), who is breathing new life into Dallas plasterworks studio Casci; a side space in the studio (top, right) is where his team experiments with new designs. A capital (above) is being molded for a historic Colonial-style Connecticut home, while a silicon mold (opposite) forms rosettes ideal for a decorative ceiling. Samples on display in the studio include a French-motif crown molding (right).
12/12/17 2:26 PM
n late 2016, rumors began to circulate among local architects and builders that Casci, Dallas’ beloved plasterworks studio now owned by Mark Marynick, was going on the market—or, worse, closing. Founded in 1930 by Italian immigrant Giovanni Primo Casci, the company transferred in 1972 to Jan and Royce Renfro, who lovingly maintained it over the decades, garnering clients nationwide, and were considering retirement. Encouraged by friend Porter Fuqua—whose father, architect Wilson Fuqua, had worked with Casci for years— Marynick visited the Renfros. “We hit it off immediately,” he recalls, yet notes the couple weren’t eager to sell. But with a Master of Business Administration from Southern Methodist University and a certificate from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Marynick had a passion for art, commerce, people, architecture and manufacturing that aligned with theirs. So by early 2017, he and Fuqua found themselves in the plaster business.
Casci’s studio is a complex of adjoined warehouses and an early 20th-century red-brick building Marynick is converting into a showroom. Under the Renfros’ careful watch, the company has retained “mountains of photographs and drawings of its productions and almost an acre of molds,” he says. These molds were originally made from animal rendering and could produce only three or four castings. But 30 years ago, the Renfros switched to silicone and urethane molds, which they used to make copies of Casci’s vast inventory of crown moldings, mantels, wainscoting, columns, medallions and more. “If our archives don’t contain the original piece, we at least have the molds,” Marynick notes. Commissions—of which Casci receives one to two a day—typically begin with samples rather than drawings, which “allows us to work through things and problem solve,” he adds. This involves carving a positive—usually wood, plaster or clay—to make a mold and then mixing

and slowly pouring in the plaster, which reveals the design when dry. Now running the studio solo—Fuqua is focusing on his family’s architecture firm— Marynick has set his sights on both classical restoration and contemporary endeavors. He put in a bid for the University of North Texas’ restoration of the Dallas Municipal Courts building and is in discussions with the Highland Park Independent School District board about donating plaster designs to the planned John S. Bradfield Elementary School library. Marynick also answers calls from clients with modernist homes—a new sector helping to sustain his firm, which is one of just a handful of plaster specialists nationwide operating at its scale and quality of work. “People want to soften modern interiors with ornament that doesn’t conflict with the design,” he says. “We can do
stripped-down versions of historical pieces or simple geometrics. Plaster is the punctuation, not the language.” What hasn’t changed at Casci is its recipe for plaster, of which the studio goes through roughly 70 tons a year. “We still use good-old USG Gypsum molding plaster, as we have since the beginning,” Marynick notes. “It’s incredibly stable— lasting 25 years or more before needing work.” The company also remains very much a closeknit business. The son of veteran foreman Jesus Garcia recently joined the team, as has noted woodcarver Paul J. Labadie. Marynick’s brother and nieces are also pitching in. And the Renfros still like to drop by. “I’ve had so much support and encouragement,” Marynick says. “It’s nice to be involved with something so much bigger than myself: a company celebrating design and craftsmanship while offering so much value.”

IN WEST LAKE HILLS, A DATED STRUCTURE BECOMES A MODERN HOME THAT EMBRACES ITS WOODED LANDSCAPE. WRITTEN BY TATE GUNNERSON / PHOTOGRAPHY BY DROR BALDINGER
12/12/17 2:26 PM
rmed with expertise and experience in home renovations, builder Matt Shoberg and his wife, Paige, don’t shy away from a challenge—which is the reason they saw potential in the traditional 1990s red-brick abode they purchased in West Lake Hills. Smitten with the neighborhood and the home’s location on a wooded 1.2acre lot, they knew they could work with architects Philip Keil and Gary Furman to transform the outdated residence into something more striking and suitable for themselves and their four young sons. “They rescued what a lot of people would have considered a tear-down and made it relevant and useful to a modern family,” Keil says. Up for the task, the architects—with project captains Arthur Furman and Drew Wilson—hatched a plan to cover the home’s brick exterior with natural gray plaster and eliminate the multiple gables in favor of a roofline with
a standing-seam metal detail running underneath. As a layout update, they added a steel-and-glass bridge that contains a new dining room and passes over a dip in the land, connecting the existing structure to one of two new wings. “Stretching out into the lot with these skinnier arms gave us spaces that are one-room deep with views, light and breezes through them from both sides,” Keil says. “It’s much more elegant.” The sloping lot was a major draw, Matt adds, as he knew it would “make for fantastic architecture.” The terrain not only allows for this dramatic bridge but also accommodates a new walkout basement, which houses a gym and is tucked into a hillside underneath the master suite in the front addition. Turning to the original portion of the home, the builder and his crew gutted the interior to the studs, moving nearly all the walls and relocating almost every room. “There is a lot of concrete and structural steel in the house,” Matt notes.
A custom front door—featuring a Shou Sugi Ban technique on cypress wood by Delta Millworks in a pivoting steel frame— establishes a casual yet refined tone in the entry of this West Lake Hills home by Furman + Keil Architects. The space features art from Drew Nussbaum—opposite the door—and by Todd K. Short from Deborah Page Projects. A Kyle Bunting rug tops slate flooring from Stone Solutions.

Walnut cabinetry by Precision Woodcrafting and exposed ceiling beams by Steel House MFG help define the family room, where an Artistic Leathers sofa from Furniture Market offers roomy seating atop an RH rug.

The kitchen houses walnut cabinetry by Precision Woodcrafting wearing Top Knobs hardware from The Hardware Hut. The gray quartzite countertops are from Alpha Granite & Tile; the Wolf rangetop is from Wilson AC & Appliance.
Some of those materials play a decorative role: A steel railing updates the sculptural stairway near the front entry, while rectangular metal “bents” that support the roof in the rear family room addition remain exposed. “It’s fun to show how the building is put together,” Keil says. Those metal bents lead from the lofted family room to a screened poolside patio containing a dining space and an adjacent sitting area. Here, the ceiling transitions from sheetrock to exposed rafters as the addition reaches into the landscape. “It’s a subtle way to dissolve the boundary between inside and outside,” Keil says. Further blurring the line, the patio shares the interior’s plaster-coated masonry walls and Brazilian black-slate floor tile. “We saw a very small sample of the flooring and took a big chance,” Paige says. “We wanted to do something we haven’t seen time and time again.” A geometric-patterned wool rug adds a soft juxtaposition to the stone flooring in the family room, where designer Wendy Williamson added a tufted-leather sofa and a steelframed cocktail table with a colorful plush top made of a vintage rug. Throughout the home, “there is a mixture of elements that feels more interesting and custom,” she says. In the adjacent kitchen, for instance, built-in walnut cabinets add an organic layer and feature a custom steelcorner detail, making them durable for an active family. The nearby dining room shows off additional thoughtful

elements such as wide-plank oak floors and grass-cloth wallpaper that foster a warm and cozy sensibility. But in this space, “lighting is the statement,” the designer says. “It was important to get it right, so we spent a lot of time searching for something unique.” As such, bespoke chandeliers made from vintage baskets and brass fixtures hang above the custom wood-and-steel dining table. Each space is tied together by a palette of warm woods and watery-blue tones. A striated blue wallcovering, for example, adds color and texture to the master bedroom, which is outfitted with a tufted-upholstered headboard and painted-wood side tables with metal studs. The walnut cabinetry makes an encore appearance in the en-suite
bathroom, pairing with light quartzite countertops and rustic limestone flooring. “We wanted the flooring to have a little age or a feeling of wear so the house felt comfortable and lived-in from the beginning,” Williamson explains. Comfortable is an understatement, according to the happy owners, who spend most of their time in the family room or on the poolside patio thanks to electric screens that lower at the touch of a button. The lofted kitchen and family room overlook the swimming pool and spa, allowing Paige to keep an eye on her boys playing outside while she prepares dinner or relaxes indoors. “We had no idea what direction the architects would take going into the preliminary design, but it really blew me away,” she says. “We love it here.”

BRITISH INVASION THE SPIRIT OF AN ESTEEMED ENGLISH ARCHITECT INSPIRES THE REMODEL OF A HOUSTON HOME. WRITTEN BY MINDY PANTIEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY PETER VITALE

n 2006, architect Virginia Kelsey visited England to tour the homes of her design hero, Edwin Lutyens, touted as one of the greatest British architects of the 20th century. Using exceptional craftsmanship to reinforce his designs, Lutyens was a master at mixing the Cotswold vernacular with more formal classicism— elements Kelsey brought to a home renovation nearly 10 years later on a wooded 2½-acre site in Houston. “Lutyens’ underlying complexity, masked as simplicity thanks to his adept use of materials, is what I strive for,” Kelsey says. “He wouldn’t hesitate to mix a Georgian exterior with a floor plan that’s nothing like a Georgian.” With Jake Housberg as builder, Kelsey transformed the exterior of her clients’ residence into a style reminiscent of an English country manor while reshaping the interiors with an open floor plan more suitable to modern life. The owners had built the house for their growing family in the 1990s, but with their adult children now out the door, they were
ready to update with a more British flair. “It was mostly design elements that bothered me,” the wife recalls of the dated structure. “I love plaster walls, and ours had a faux finish. I also disliked the maintenance on the mahogany windows, which had turned orange over time.” In keeping with Lutyens’ ethos, Kelsey strived for a richness of materials, beginning with the structure’s façade. She removed the exterior Austin limestone and then placed it back in a slightly different pattern with additional mortar left visible for an aged appearance. “The mortar has such a significant effect on how the stone looks,” the architect says. She also replaced the existing roof with reclaimed Ludowici clay tile salvaged from a federal building in St. Louis and changed the soffits and overhangs for an English countenance. The quest for authenticity continued with the grounds, which received a major facelift. Working with landscape designer Daryl McCann—alongside codesigner and

project manager Linda Bailey—and interior designer Cathy Chapman, whose senior designer was Alexandria Elam, Kelsey determined the pool needed to be relocated away from the house to create a courtyard stepping down to it. The grounds’ natural water feature also required a serious overhaul. “The pond was an eyesore, with a faux-rock waterfall and an irrigation controller nailed to a crooked post beside it,” McCann recalls. To spruce it up, the pond coping was refinished with a stacked stone wall, and plantings reminiscent of those seen in Great Britain were introduced. “Oak and holly trees reinforce the English garden idea, and boxwood-bordered perennial planting masses reflect the early-19th-century gardens of Gertrude Jekyll,” McCann says, referencing the esteemed landscape designer who often collaborated with Lutyens. Once inside, Kelsey “turned the house inside out,” she says. “Originally, all views were blocked by fireplaces, halls or other elements, limiting the connection to the outside.”
In response, she removed walls between the living and dining rooms to create a 30-by-40-foot great room lined with six sets of welcoming French doors. She also swapped a fireplace for a bay window to bring natural light into the morning room, which adjoins the kitchen. Wood from the morning room’s resawn salvaged beams now appears on the great room’s coffered ceiling, while pine floors replaced the home’s various existing ones. New bronze-clad wood fenestration eliminated the orange tones that plagued the owner and, after the team reviewed around 30 samples with the wife, the plaster wall color was pinpointed. “We needed the perfect creamy neutral—not too yellow or too gray—and we found it,” Chapman says. To cap it off, the walls were lightly sanded and then waxed for an aged finish. The nearly three-year construction process gave Chapman time to source furnishings and antiques that lend a collected feel. “The wife wanted depth and character,”

An 18th-century mantel from Chateau Domingue highlights the master bathroom, where Kelsey designed curved cabinetry. The tub, the Barber Wilsons & Co. Ltd. fixtures and The Sterlingham Co. Ltd. towel warmer are from Elegant Additions. The chair from Joyce Horn Antiques touts Matka raw silk on the frame and Le Gracieux fabric from David Sutherland on the cushion. The draperies are Cowtan & Tout; the Persian Tabriz rug is from Carol Piper Rugs.

The front porch is a welcome respite thanks to a vintage Adirondack sleeping swing from Vincent Mulford Antiques in Hudson, New York, topped with a tufted mattress in Weitzner outdoor linen from Pollack. Behind the swing, Peck & Company added custom brackets to the French antique lanterns, which were purchased from Watkins Culver. The French garden chairs upholstered in Perennials fabric are from M Naeve.
the interior designer explains, pointing to finds like a pair of 19th-century octagonal French mirrors for the hallways, a set of carved Swedish chairs from the same century for the breakfast nook and a 17th-century French trestle table in the husband’s sitting room used as a counterweight for large contemporary artwork concealing four televisions. Because of its size, the home’s great room required special attention. Chapman divided the commodious space into two seating areas separated by a French fruitwood dining table surrounded by benches. At one end, she placed a quartet of linen-velvet chairs encircling an agedleather ottoman by the fireplace; at the opposite, she paired a linen sofa with a set of wood-framed chairs in a graphic woven fabric. “The subtle furniture shapes create a cohesive geometry,” the interior designer says. “The intent was to move toward more layered English elements.” Nature inspired the color scheme’s gentle blend of earthy greens, taupey browns and terra cottas. Remaining mindful of scale and proportion, Chapman and Kelsey strived to create a sense of history that was about honoring the past, not copying it—just as Lutyens would have approved. “This house is about exploring materials and how things were done historically—and incorporating those ideas into a modern context,” Kelsey says.

OPEN HOUSE AT SKY CROWN TERRACES
In October, Bercy Chen Studio held an open house at Sky Crown Terraces, two identical and adjacent homes designed and built by Bercy Chen Studio, and furnished by Scott + Cooner. Attendees enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while touring the monolithic form, courtyards and habitable flat roofs that evoke the vernacular of the American Southwest, interpreted by Modernism.

EASTERN INFLUENCE “ASIAN-INSPIRED OBJECTS AND CHINOISERIE HAVE THE POWER TO TRANSPORT TO A PLACE OF SURPRISE AND DISCOVERY,” SAYS DESIGNER HUTTON WILKINSON. MOVED BY WILKINSON’S WORDS, AS WELL AS THE LUXURIOUS SILK WALLCOVERING AND GILDED BAMBOO MIRROR FOUND IN HIS BEVERLY HILLS BEDROOM (SHOWN), WE, TOO, WERE INFLUENCED BY ASIAN CULTURE THIS WINTER—PARTICULARLY BY THE VIBRANT, FESTIVE CHINESE NEW YEAR. IN A CONSCIOUS DEPARTURE FROM THE HOLIDAY’S QUINTESSENTIAL RED HUE, WE TURNED TO GREEN, ONE OF THE PRIMARY COLORS ASSOCIATED WITH 2018’S DOMINATING ENERGY FORM: THE EARTH ELEMENT. WITH THE BELIEF THAT GREEN IS THE COLOR OF GOOD HEALTH, HARMONY AND WELL-BEING, HERE IS TO AN OPTIMISTIC 2018 AHEAD!
