The infinite potential of a blank canvas. The reinvention of your favorite room. The home you hope to create. WE BELIEVE THE MOST PLEASING ENVIRONMENTS ARE A REFLECTION OF HUMAN DESIGN. THEY ARE A STUDY OF BALANCE, SYMMETRY AND PERFECT PROPORTIONS. WE RESPECT THE HIERARCHY AND IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE, FURNITURE AND DÉCOR THAT CREATE HARMONY. IT’S A DISCIPLINE OF ADDITION THROUGH SUBTRACTION, WHERE LESS BECOMES MORE, AND CALM IS CREATED THROUGH CONTINUITY. THE RESULT IS A HOLISTIC DESIGN THAT IS STRONG YET SIMPLE. WE SUBSCRIBE TO LEONARDO DA VINCI’S PHILOSOPHY THAT “SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTICATION.” OUR DESIGNERS PLACE YOU AT THE CENTER OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS, WORKING TO REALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR HOME, AND TO BRING YOUR VISION TO LIFE.

All you have to do is imagine. FOR AN APPOINTMENT, VISIT THE RH DESIGN ATELIER AT YOUR LOCAL GALLERY OR CONTACT US AT RH.COM/INTERIORDESIGN.

EDITOR’S LETTER

STYLE MATTERS

LX_COM10_EditorLetter.indd 84

I recently came upon this headline while scrolling online: FIVE EASY STEPS TO DEFINE YOUR HOME’S STYLE! Curiosity got the better of me, so I clicked and was served up five “looks” from which to discover my sense of self. A one-click approach to finding your style seems so, well, unimaginative. I’ve always subscribed to the belief that sartorial matters are personal and best left to marinate slowly over years, decades, a lifetime. This issue, like each one we publish, is populated with all manner of looks, attitudes and ideas (edited through our prism) and designed to spark creativity and expose you to a fresh inkling or new take on a deep-rooted idea. Here, we explore the age-old art form of portraiture, shine a spotlight on lighting that

ranges from Bauhaus-inspired to overtly maximalist, and report on tips and advice for entertaining at home. That’s our approach: to present viewpoints, designs and concepts with the hope that there’s an element or two for you to integrate and put your own spin on. Like people, the most interesting homes are layered, eclectic and unhurriedly evolved—never a quick click. From my house to yours, I wish you a season filled with beauty and enjoyed with those that you love.

Luxe Interiors + Design Arizona wrapped up summer with three inspiring events. In August, we partnered with Lavish Interiors and Staging Furniture at their combined Scottsdale showroom for an event featuring Donny Osmond Home’s furniture collection. Guests learned about the company’s interior design services and the vast staging options to accelerate home sales. We then transitioned to a Paradise Valley luxury residential listing from Frank Aazami with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty— Private Client Group to introduce a panel of influential designers who tackled the topic “Designing for the Affluent.” Panelists Robert Burg, Janet Brooks, Lissa Lee Hickman, KT Tamm, Matthew Boland and Caroline DeCesare collaborated with an audience of top design and real estate professionals to discuss best industry practices. We ended the season with Boulevard Urban Living for a fabulous grand opening of its expansive Scottsdale showroom. Guests mingled amongst the organic and contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories, many of which were sourced locally and custom built. Enjoy the best in architecture and design in this issue of Luxe Arizona!

CONTRIBUTORS

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

BRADLEY NESBITT WEATHERLY If I could interview anyone, I would… Want to talk to Kate Middleton, off the record. Any time you have the opportunity to speak to someone whose life is in front of the lens, it’s always nice to have moments that are stripped away to meet the real person, know what makes them laugh, get insight into their quirks and see who they are outside of the public sphere. Favorite Luxe interview: I enjoyed the conversation I had with landscape architect Mario Nievera of Nievera Williams. It was so interesting to see how he thinks of grass as rugs and boxwoods as wallpaper. His entire approach to outdoor landscape is so relatable to interiors. What type of architecture inspires you the most? I’m a Southern girl, so I love both Greek Revival and Georgian styles. I can almost smell the magnolia when I see a Greek Revival house; it immediately takes me home. Words of wisdom: Never let fear determine your steps.

JESSICA KLEWICKI GLYNN Photographer / Palm Beach

What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? I like that traditional methods of crafting furniture are making a comeback with many bespoke designers. I also enjoy when people repurpose antique hardware, including hinges, doorknobs and pulls. Top three things on your design wish list: I would love a marble-topped Saarinen dining table for my new breakfast room, some beautiful wall sconces for my bedroom (particularly Aerin’s black Charlton wall lights), and a redo of my pool area—something sleek yet traditional such as a bluestone pool deck. Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Growing up, all of my summers were spent at our family vacation home in Montauk. One day, while working the ticket booth at a movie theater in East Hampton, I was reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions. A gentleman walked up and said, “So how do you like that book?” I told him I loved it, and he said, “Do you want me to sign it?” I looked up and it was Kurt Vonnegut. I still have the signed copy on my bookshelf.

LX_COM10_Contributors.indd 102

NICK JOHNSON Photographer / New York What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received? On my first day as a photo assistant, I worked on a shoot of Martha Stewart with the legendary architectural photographer Scott Frances. Afterward, I was telling Scott what a great day it was and he said, “As far as your career goes, you are what you shoot.” I try to remember this to make sure I get the best shots possible. Whose work are you influenced by design-wise? Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone of Consort Design and Estee Stanley. Their work is casual, comfortable and cool. I try to take what I can from them and incorporate it into my own house. Memorable Luxe assignment: While my assistant and I were shooting a Colorado house with amazing views, we heard a loud rustling behind us and saw a bear standing in the woods. We left so fast that we forgot the camera and had to get reinforcements to go back and get our equipment. The bear didn’t indulge us for any selfies, though.

PATRICK SORAN Writer / Denver Prized possessions: Since my husband and two dogs aren’t possessions, I would have to say my neoclassical console table built in Italy around 1850 (that I love more than I ought to), a pair of wood carvings of Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris that I bought in a shop on the banks of the Nile, and the little plaque I got in ninth grade for Best Creative Writing. What books have impacted you the most? First, William Zinsser’s On Writing Well. The author recommends that a writer get to the point, tell the story and then run to the nearest door. Right now, though, I’m obsessed with the symbolism of diamonds and radio signals in Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See. If not a writer, what you would be? A flâneur is a person who does nothing much but walk around hither and yon and enjoy what he sees. I’d flâneur in Paris, Manhattan and San Francisco, thank you very much. Then I’d have lunch.

ABOUT

FACE THE BEST PLACE FOR A PORTRAIT ISN’T HANGING IN A MUSEUM GALLERY—IT’S ON THE WALL IN YOUR HOME. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

From the Mona Lisa and Girl with a Pearl Earring to American Gothic, the collective fascination with portrait art goes back far beyond even the most famous examples of the genre: back to prehistoric times, in fact, where crude renderings of faces in profile have been discovered by archaeologists in cave dwellings and in the tombs of Egyptian and Chinese royalty. Few mediums have had such staying power. So, what’s with the fascination with faces? It’s simple: Much like the best writing, portraits are a way to explore our humanity—something that highlights all the ways in which we are different and all the ways in which we are the same. So, it’s no surprise that the introspective art form has been increasingly making its way into our homes, with portraits often acting as the stars of busy gallery walls and standalone displays alike. Here, Luxe rounds up some of our favorite local and international artists that are keeping the ages-old tradition alive and fresh with new interpretations and thrilling techniques.

RADAR / ON DISPLAY

GABRIEL SCHAMA

FAMILY PORTRAITS Who: From his studio in Oakland, California, artist Gabriel Schama’s powerful profiles and portraits are a cut above—literally. All of his pieces are either carefully excised by hand with an X-Acto knife or expertly produced with the help of his in-house assistant, a laser cutter he’s named Elsie. What: Schama’s work runs the gamut, from reimagined images from newspaper articles and album covers where he’s replaced the faces with boldly hued paper-cut explosions to classic profiles executed in wood with inner workings comprised of Elsie’s precisely stacked layers (as shown in the section opener). Why we love him: There’s something meditative about Schama’s work, like a complex wood weaving or a dizzying mandala brought to life. It’s hard to look away. gabrielschama.com

KEHINDE WILEY

SHANTAVIA BEALE II, 2012 Who: No one breaks down boundaries and flips the narrative quite like Brooklyn-based artist Kehinde Wiley, whose classically inspired oil paintings are made modern thanks to their subjects. What: Highly stylized and realistically rendered portraits in rich palettes depicting black and brown men and women from all over the world in poses influenced by the works of the old masters. Why we love him: There’s so much ground the historical portrait-painting tradition has yet to cover, and Wiley’s work is helping to narrow the distance between the genre’s myopic view of the past and the incredible diversity of our everyday reality— while simultaneously celebrating it. kehindewiley.com; skny.com

CAYCE ZAVAGLIA

GARRETT, 2011 Who: Artist Cayce Zavaglia had spent her career working on photo-realistic oil portraits, but when she became pregnant 15 years ago and had to forgo using the toxic chemicals required of the practice, she switched gears: relying on nontraditional embroidery techniques to capture her subjects. What: Large-scale embroidered portraits that may as well have been plucked from the studios of the old masters. One of these complex pieces can take Zavaglia anywhere from six weeks to six months to produce. Why we love her: Zavaglia is able to capture the depth and personality of her subjects—all friends and members of her family—in their direct and unwavering glances; plus, the softness of the embroidery thread and wool she uses brings added warmth to each beautiful visage. caycezavaglia.com

OUKALY Who: Spanish painter Oriol Angrill Jordà has taken two of art’s most celebrated and oft-studied subjects— landscapes and the human form—and merged them together in his signature watercolor series, titled Blendscapes. The result? Portraits that break all the rules in the best way possible. What: Jordà’s work feels like a dream within a dream, with everything from steep mountain ranges to serene lakeside scenes depicted across the side of a face or a cheek, like a window into what his subjects are thinking. Why we love him: Because Jordà brings one of our favorite platitudes to life in his portraits: People contain multitudes. It’s a beautiful sentiment depicted in works that are both realistic and deeply imaginative. oriolangrill.com

RADAR / CULTURE

Walking in the shoes of some of the characters powering through traumatic, complicated lives in our favorite television shows may sound less than ideal—we’re looking at you, The Affair’s tragedystricken protagonists Noah and Alison—but living in their homes? That’s another story. One look at the aforementioned Noah’s effortlessly cool Brooklyn brownstone or Alison’s cozy beachfront retreat in Montauk can make even (spoiler alert) taking the blame for vehicular homicide seem a little more palatable. Catching a glimpse into the well-appointed Red Keep in Game of Thrones, too, can make it hard not to root for Cersei Lannister; surely, if she were so evil, she wouldn’t have such great decorating taste? As on-demand television becomes more of a staple of home entertainment, the remote’s role has gone far beyond pausing, playing and fastforwarding—it’s turning the small screen into a veritable Pinterest board full of décor ideas for everything from living and dining rooms to artist studios and, well, even the White House.

WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

It all comes as no shock to Steve Arnold, the production designer behind the uncannily realistic presidential-inspired sets on the award-winning House of Cards. “You would be completely amazed to know about all the emails we get from everywhere on the planet—from Australia, Europe, the United States,” he says. “They want to know where we sourced the chaise lounge in such and such episode, the fabric on the sofa in another episode. They’ll ask about the smallest little details.” So, is it just that people are spending more time in their homes and in front of the television, or has the entertainment industry itself become more keen to its audience’s design-leaning proclivities? It’s hard to tell. But for people like Arnold and set decorator Beauchamp Fontaine— who’s responsible for the easy, breezy coastal interiors on the set of Grace and Frankie, as well as blockbuster hits like The Revenant and Now You See Me—they’re still designing with clients in mind; they just happen to be fictional and on a crazy-tight deadline (sets are often

conceptualized and completed in as little as 6-10 weeks). This real-person approach is what gives the sets their soul and lived-in layers, and likely, what makes the spaces resonate with viewers. Lily Tomlin’s artist studio in Grace and Frankie, for example, was a real labor of love for Fontaine. “For Lily’s character, Frankie, the studio is the one place that is really and truly hers,” she says. “It became her refuge. So, it was important to me that we get it right.” To make it look real, then, Fontaine tapped a local ceramicist to come in before filming and work on the potter’s wheel— saving his half-thrown pots, slip and slurry, adding to the dialogue without saying a word. “What we’re doing is a different kind of storytelling,” Fontaine says. “Interiors can tell as much of a story as the plot sometimes. It’s been incredible to see viewers really catching on to that.” Above: A still of Lily Tomlin’s art studio from the set of Grace and Frankie, designed by Beauchamp Fontaine for the show’s premiere season on Netflix.

RADAR / ITINERARY

WRITTEN BY JESSE BRATTER

It’s almost time for the art world to descend upon Miami once again for the much-anticipated Art Basel Miami Beach fair—for artists and collectors everywhere to come in droves to South Florida for several jam-packed days of VIP previews, international brand appearances and auxiliary shows throughout the city’s metropolitan areas and artistic enclaves. Offering an oasis of design,

art and community in the midst of all the organized chaos will be Jessica Acosta-Rubio, whose creative agency Design Pub collaborates with designers and like-minded brands on both a local and global level to curate exhibitions and pop-ups. This year, she’ll join forces with Lululemon to host H[OM BASE]L at a residence on the Venetian Islands; the project will explore the seven chakras

through various activation stations with the help of tabletop brand Comunione, jewelry designer Joanne Stone, and other creatives. And while we’re sure to see Acosta-Rubio behind more events happening between December 1 and 4, she let us in on some of her other must-see spots for those who love art and design just as much as she does. atdesignpub.com

EAT “Egot,” an exhibit of furniture by Nun and Office GA, was previously presented by Design Pub and Giovanni Beltran. Damien Hirst's Gone but not Forgotten (above) is on view at Faena Hotel Miami Beach.

Soul Food: I’m a huge fan of Rene Gonzalez’s architectural work, and I love the indoor-outdoor Plant Food + Wine restaurant inside The Sacred Space Miami, a mixed-use facility he designed that focuses on wellness, education and community. From the restaurant to the outdoor area, this open yet private floor plan is so unique to Miami. It’s the perfect place to eat and drink while in a meeting or just occasionally with friends. The food and plating is absolutely gorgeous. thesacredspacemiami.com Feel Good: Paradigm Kitchen is a health-conscious restaurant concept in Miami Beach from the team at Jugofresh. I can’t take all the credit, but I loved helping them with some of their furniture selections from our favorite brand in Los Angeles, Bend Goods.

NOTABLE SOUTH FLORIDA-BASED CURATOR JESSICA ACOSTA-RUBIO DISHES ON CAN’T-MISS DESTINATIONS TO SHOP, DINE AND APPRECIATE DESIGN DURING ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH—AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHERE TO RELAX AND RECHARGE.

9/27/16 6:03 PM


RADAR / ITINERARY Design Pub curates pop-up exhibitions like “#101ManMade” (shown here and center), a show that coincided with a previous Art Basel Miami Beach. At bottom is a look at the Plant Food + Wine restaurant at The Sacred Space Miami.

SHOP Plain and Simple: Good design should be accessible to everyone. And no one practices that philosophy more than the cotton T-shirt brand Neushop Miami, whose two main characteristics are function and quality. The simple yet meaningful ethos of Neushop is represented by the barebones quality of the historic downtown building in which it’s housed, and in the shop’s monthly design forums and events that are open to the public. neushop.com En Vogue: The Webster in South Beach is definitely my preferred place to shop. I love that they’ve preserved the look and feel of the Art Deco building, because the best part of the shopping experience is the contrast between the historic design and the new fashion trends they have inside. And the accessories selection there is on point: I’m a huge fan of Annelise Michelson jewelry; I adore the world of Olympia Le-Tan; and because we live in Miami, I always need to splurge on new sunglasses by Mykita. thewebster.us

EXPLORE Double Trouble: My favorite design duo in town is Jessica Martin and Deon Rubi, collectively known as Nun, who work out of Little Haiti. They’ve been part of our Design Pub exhibits for the past two years, with a focus on furniture design and objects, including collaborations with Jonathan Gonzalez of Office GA. They were also a part of the incredible show, Giovanni Beltran’s “Primitive Hut,” at Noguchi Breton in Miami earlier this year. deonrubi.com

Meet Market: I’m very excited about the Mexican designers who will be exhibiting in Miami during Comisaria Latina de Diseño, a design showcase of art, fashion and interiors by Latin American artisans in a bazaar-like setting. Check it out at the Royal Palm South Beach Miami hotel from December 1-4.

STAY Checking In: Faena Hotel Miami Beach is my new go-to spot to have fun among art and architecture. The design is just breathtaking, and the Faena Theater is like a dream. It’s so magical and whimsical that they call it a fantasyland, and they have a performance every weekend called C’est Rouge! that shouldn’t be missed. Every time I find myself at Faena, I always feel as if I’m inside of a movie. It’s like Wes Anderson meets Moulin Rouge. faena.com

Moore is More: The Moore Building houses a site-specific installation by Zaha Hadid that is definitely worth seeing. We’ll have a show there during the next big art and design invasion—Maison & Objet Americas in May—with lots of limited-edition works mainly by young talents from Miami and Latin America. bridgehouseevents.com

EXHIBIT PHOTOS: ERIKA BLANCO. PLANT FOOD

View Finder: I love walking around the Miami Design District and discovering new places. Alchemist has been one of my favorite finds. The fashion boutique has three locations, with this one focusing on fine jewelry. It’s again designed by Rene Gonzalez and has an unforgettable rose gold-mirrored façade, is surrounded by palm trees and lies diagonally to the Buckminster Fuller Fly’s Eye Dome sculpture. The whole area has changed tremendously—mounting exhibitions inside temporary spaces here over the last six years, I’ve seen it all. The Design District is the most ambitious project in Miami in terms of community building and outstanding design. I can’t wait for the opening of the new Institute of Contemporary Art, all of our summer rooftop parties and more restaurants to come. miamidesigndistrict.net

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

FINE PRINT THE CREATIVE WUNDERKIND BEHIND NEW YORK’S WALLCOVERING UPSTART, VOUTSA, GEORGE VENSON USHERS IN A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF DESIGN LOVERS WHO BELIEVE PATTERN MAKES PERFECT. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA / PORTRAIT BY CHRIS GLOAG

“No one can pronounce it,” says George Venson, with a laugh, in reference to the name of his devil-may-care design house, Voutsa—an abridged version of his father’s family’s pre-Ellis Island Greek surname. And while that might be mostly true (for the record, it’s | voot | - sä), it’s had no bearing whatsoever on the company’s rapid ascent. Venson’s bold, at times risqué, wallpapers almost instantly found their niche after Voutsa’s launch in 2013, and his devotees have hardly let phonetics get in the way of translating the brand’s whimsical prints into statementmaking backdrops for daring interiors. Voutsa’s painterly collections feature wild and fantastical illustrations—from giant watercolor lips and coral-grazing goldfish to elegant birds-of-paradise and Russian dancers in mid-waltz. They’re all fun and eye-catching, but if Voutsa’s nearly meteoric rise can be attributed to any one thing, it’s to Venson’s own sheer force of will: his aversion to trends and his selfprofessed interest in charting his own course. “I have no desire to make the typical, expected things,” he says. “I want everything I do to have a bit of a twist, something no one sees coming.” It seems obvious, then, that a year after his first wallpaper collection premiered to great success, the artist-turned-product designer was on to the next thing: a capsule fashion line—in collaboration with Paul Marlow, the couture mastermind behind the retired menswear collective Loden Dager—rendered from Voutsa’s most popular patterns, which he’s currently traveling to promote in a series of international pop-up shops, like his latest in London, at right. “When I first started working with Paul, I told him I wanted to create clothing that represented my ideal look—from head to toe,” Venson explains. “We did tunics and shirts and bandannas, focusing on well-made pieces with classic cuts that could fit different body types.” For Venson, though, it’s not just about outfitting a body or a room; it’s about capturing a lifestyle—regardless of if that life is being carried out in a New York City apartment or in the Oval Office (a name he drops when asked for his dream commission). “I have a wonderfully diverse base of people interested in the work I do at Voutsa,” he says. “Whether it’s one of my wallpapers getting selected for a high-end project by a big decorator or a printed scarf going home with someone in Wyoming, I love that each person can take away a piece of this fantasy world I’ve created.”

#INSTACRUSH

@kate.lines

WHO: A Kodak camera given to Kate Lines on her 10th birthday forever changed her life. Today, from her 1970s ranch-style home, the Gilbert-based photographer, printmaker and design enthusiast is on a mission to bring colorful, quirky photos to homes everywhere, one shot at a time.

WHY: Who wouldn’t want to peek into Lines’ viewfinder for a look into her creative process? Whether documenting her most recent design project or her latest score at the local vintage shop, this girl next door has a penchant for documenting relatable moments. IN HER WORDS: “You definitely won’t see a sea of white and beige on my feed. Color and light are the two things that literally stop me in my tracks and make my heart beat a little faster.”

TALKING SHOP WITH NANCY RUBEN

THE EMBELLISHED HOUSE When did you open? We originally opened in 2007. After we outgrew two previous locations, The Embellished House made its latest debut in 2014 at the Airpark Design Center. Why vintage and reclaimed goods? Found items have a story to tell that continues from owner to owner. A new piece will only tell you who the manufacturer is and what it is made of. Vintage pieces, industrial items and architectural salvage represent us: our past, families and history. Describe the space: There are individual vignettes with exposed frame walls, open scaffolding used as shelving and salvaged factory windows in my office. Most memorable find: A pair of wooden jailhouse doors from Leadville, Colorado. They are phenomenal in patina and jailhouse lore. As soon as they were sold, I chased the purchaser to her car to ask if I could buy them back! theembellishedhouse.com

THE INSIDER STUART GRAFF

Stuart Graff has long harbored a passion for 20th-century architecture, particularly the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, so it seemed like kismet when, in February, he was appointed CEO and president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. The Scottsdale-based non-profit is dedicated to maintaining the legendary architect’s Taliesin and Taliesin West homes. “At Taliesin West, we are not only preserving the historic integrity of Wright’s winter home; we are advancing his legacy of sustainability by upgrading the property for the 21st century,” he says. Here, Graff discusses what’s catching his eye and what it’s like to keep alive the vision of one of the area’s most famous architects. franklloydwright.org For the art-obsessed: I just moved to Phoenix earlier this year from Chicago and have been amazed at the vibrancy of the arts community. I’m starting to check out the scene along Roosevelt Row, where there are spectacular local artists working and exhibiting. Hopefully, in the future, we can showcase their work at Taliesin West. The Heard Museum also appeals to my personal interest in exploring cultures. I’ve been all over the world and the United States, but the exhibits at the Heard provide a great education on our indigenous groups and exposed me to things I had not seen before. Ones to watch: Andrew Pielage, who works with us at Taliesin West and specializes in architectural and landscape photography. He really understands Wright’s use of space, light and color, and he translates that understanding across all of his work. I also recently saw Abbey Messmer’s work at the Phoenix Art Museum and fell in love with it so much that I purchased one of her paintings. Up next: We’re excited to bring live theater back to Taliesin West. In partnership with the Southwest Shakespeare Company, we will be presenting two plays this season, beginning with A Midwinter Night’s Dream in December. This is the beginning of what we hope will be a rebirth of Taliesin West to be more in line with what Frank Lloyd Wright intended: a living space where creative work such as art, architecture, music, theater and dance is presented and celebrated.

DATE BOOK MICHAEL AFSA

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Michael Afsa’s love of art has always defined him, first as a young enthusiast exploring painting, drawing and ceramics and later as a graphic designer for the likes of Apple, Scion, Nixon and Roxy. Eventually, though, his out-of-office pastime and passion won over, and he settled in Phoenix to focus on producing his art full time. Today, his three-dimensional wall pieces are hanging sculptures—abstract landscapes he creates using metals, wood, sand, twine and paint. Each canvas is a peek into an imaginary world with new species of flora in fields of creative geometric shapes and forms. While he credits his inspiration and influences to his design background, much of his creative sparks are spurred by happenings, both past and present, in the design worlds. “I look at a lot of architecture and also product design from different eras,” he says. “I like seeing how ideas and meanings are communicated and created through design.” While in the midst of exhibiting as part of a group show at Tohono Chul Park in Tucson, Afsa shares with Luxe all the can’tmiss destinations in his Phoenix hometown. michaelafsa.com 10 a.m. Begin your day with brunch at Ocotillo on North 3 rd Street. The food and outdoor spaces are awesome, but what I love most about this restaurant is that it feels distinctly Arizona. Start with some of the sweet and light plates, and then go for one of the quiches or the Southwest-inspired scrambled farm eggs. 11 a.m. Peruse the books at Changing Hands Bookstore. I’m interested in art, design and nature, so I head to those departments and see new titles are added frequently. The staff is very helpful in fi nding just the right kind of literary entertainment you’re looking for. 12 p.m. Visit For the People to shop a great selection of modern products from both local and world-renowned creators. The store recently moved into its current location on North Central Avenue, and the huge showroom is full of inspiring art and design goods. As a new dad, I especially have my eyes on the children’s toys, which I’d happily display on my own shelf!

4 p.m. If you want a physical challenge, hike the Quartz Ridge Trail, a winding trail at 32nd Street and Lincoln Drive that ascends to a spectacular view of the valley. For something less strenuous, grab a cocktail at Gertrude’s and stroll through the Desert Botanical Garden. I love getting lost in the world of nature and all of its beauty and complexity. 7 p.m. Stop in for dinner at the Asian-inspired kitchen Clever Koi. Everything on the menu is delicious, but I especially love the chicken and waffl e steamed buns and the kimchi fried rice. 8 p.m. End the night with a live show at my go-to music venue, the Crescent Ballroom. It brings to town some of my favorites, like José González, The Tallest Man on Earth and Washed Out.

1 p.m. Eat lunch at Otro Café, my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. Order the guacamole, which has a refreshing blend of citrus and spices. My favorite entree is defi nitely the Mole Negro; the sauce is sweet, spicy and so delicious. 2 p.m. After lunch, head down the street to The Colony, a hip mixed-use development. Visit eyewear shop Framed Ewe and the Phoenix General, a great little spot for fashion and accessories. 3 p.m. Make your way to the late Paolo Soleri’s residence and sculpture studio, Cosanti, in Paradise Valley. It’s a fun and inspiring place to explore his work. You’ll wander among biomorphic, domed work spaces that feature his playful wind chimes hanging throughout. 124 / LUXESOURCE.COM

STUDY in CONTRASTS

CAST AGAINST THE RAW BACKDROP OF A BROOKLYN WAREHOUSE, THE SEASON’S FINEST LIGHTING PIECES SHINE WITH REFINED BRILLIANCE.

PRODUCED BY KATE BERGERON / WRITTEN BY MIMI FAUCETT PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVID PRINCE / STYLING BY ALEX BRANNIAN

KATIE KIME

ARTIST & DESIGNER KATIEKIME.COM

It’s rare that… The words “whimsical” and “architectural” can go together, but somehow, Rosie Li pulls it off. I’m a pretty big risk-taker in general. I tend to think that there are less “rules” in decorating than most others do. When I look at Bubbly I smile, because they really went for it, and to that I can relate. On trend: The piece is gold, layered and extravagant yet with a playful curvature. All of these elements are on trend, but especially the idea of pairing opposites: extravagance with function, playfulness with formality. When it comes to luxury design… It’s all in the details, but sometimes the details can often be painstaking and much easier to just forego. When a designer like Li has spent time on the finishing touches, you can easily spot the difference. The fixture against this backdrop… Is a marriage of two ideas: respect for the past and boldness for the future. It’s a delicate balance to strike, and here it’s done very well.

THE PIECE: Bubbly 08-Light Linear Chandelier THE DESIGNER: Rosie Li FIND IT: rosieli.com THE INSPIRATION: Inspired by soap bubbles and Newton’s law of universal gravitation, Brooklyn-based Rosie Li married maximalism with geometric elegance to create a stellar brass lighting system—a sculptural take on the traditional linear chandelier.

ABOVE THE FOLD THE PIECE: Origami Table Lamp THE DESIGNER: François Champsaur for Pouenat FIND IT: hollyhunt.com THE INSPIRATION: Calling on the ancient art of origami, François Champsaur’s angular brass table lamp explores the infinite possibilities offered by metal, with the sharp, decorative lines of the material clearly on display.

DAVID MONTALBA

ARCHITECT MONTALBAARCHITECTS.COM

François Champsaur’s work shows… A strong, consistent support of extremely high-quality design and unique craftsmanship. The folded metal planes and the focus of the light on the material’s surface feel very architectural and intentional. It reminds me of both contemporary sculpture and some of our own work: It’s rooted in the past with its cast fabrication, but its form suggests a contemporary relationship and progress. On trend: This particular finish feels timeless, possibly vintage or repurposed. Lately, there has been a push toward recycled, conscious fashion, so in that respect, this piece feels in line with the current zeitgeist of design. When it comes to luxury design… A bespoke piece, be it for clothing or interiors, always feels like more of a privilege than whatever massproduced product it’s up against. Playing a role in crafting what you wear, or how you live, is the ultimate in luxury. In composition: The sculptural qualities of the lamp are very elegant, giving it a sense of formality. The polished continuity of the fixture against the rough brick background really highlights its simplicity and clean lines. A strong contrast is visually engaging; this opposition inspires dialogue.

LX_COM10_Spotlight.indd 160

9/28/16 5:55 PM


CHRISTINA BRYANT TEXTILE MAVEN STFRANK.COM

Pelle’s use of form and material is… Enchanting. Their compositions come across as both deconstructed and refined—I love that apposition. I’m all about taking risks. This is an exceptionally whimsical sconce, and it has much more of an organic shape than I’m used to seeing from Pelle. In that way, I think it’s a risk well-taken. My line of work demonstrates… My love for—and belief in—the beauty of juxtaposing texture and shape. That same quality draws me to the Lure sconce. On trend: Lure’s mix of hard and soft, the sleek metallic with the organic cast flower, is a combination we’re seeing in fashion right now. That, along with the costume-like romance and femininity of the petals, makes this piece very much in style. The rustic, industrial backdrop… Contrasted against these delicate sconces accentuates their sensuality as well as their clean-lined hardware. The way the light is cast toward the flowers creates shadowy silhouettes that echo their shapes, which is really captivating.

LX_COM10_Spotlight.indd 161

STEEL MAGNOLIAS THE PIECE: Lure Sconce THE DESIGNER: Pelle FIND IT: pelledesigns.com THE INSPIRATION: Enlisted for its structural strength yet technical delicacy, the magnolia served as the muse for Pelle’s Lure sconce. A suspended LED light, held by a slender brass arc, illuminates the fixture’s hand-sculpted cast-paper petals.

IN PLAIN SIGHT THE PIECE: Lumenariums in High and Low THE DESIGNER: John Pomp FIND IT: johnpomp.com THE INSPIRATION: Stirred by the idea of creating an environment for light to live, John Pomp captured the beauty of an illuminated cityscape contained within a pair of milky glass-crystal cloches.

LX_COM10_Spotlight.indd 162

RYAN KORBAN

INTERIOR DESIGNER RYANKORBAN.COM

I like the artisanal feel of John Pomp’s work. He is a true craftsman, which is something I am attracted to as a designer. On trend: In a world where design is often over-saturated and everything tends to look the same, I think Pomp’s Lumenariums feel original. I’m constantly searching for pieces that are authentic, and this hits that note. Silhouette is… Often the most important aspect of lighting, and the sophistication of this particular piece is really in its silhouette. When it comes to luxury design… People love great pieces but don’t want their environment to feel too decorated. People are eager for statement items, but are not looking for a polished, matching ensemble. Rather, they want to mix and match; it’s a fresher perspective. In composition: I love the juxtaposition of the lights and the backdrop. It is that perfect combination of something custom and refined with something super undone that sparks emotion. I am always inspired by the intersection of product and environment. Opposites attract. And that could not be truer than in design. This kind of contrast makes people feel—not just see. It evokes emotion that cannot be replicated.

9/28/16 5:56 PM


GEO LOGIC THE PIECE: The Wrongski THE DESIGNER: Jean-Pascal Gauthier FIND IT: jeanpascalgauthier.com THE INSPIRATION: Here, a geometric mélange of acrylic, brass, mirror and glass keeps with the suspended and balanced mobile style of Jean-Pascal Gauthier’s portfolio, which is steadily influenced by the Bauhaus movement.

STEPHANIE VON WATZDORF CREATIVE DIRECTOR FIGUE.COM

Jean-Pascal Gauthier’s work reminds me of… The Russian Constructivism movement that started in 1913 by Vladimir Tatlin, along with sculptor Alexander Calder’s work—which I love. It resembles a mobile: I like the harmony of the shapes and the mix of the triangle with the big and small bulbs. I always look to interior design… For inspiration in my own work; both worlds complement each other. I look at proportions, colors, textures, fabrics and overall elegance. In terms of luxury design: For me, quality equates to luxury. Statement piece: Any piece that is unexpected and has an interesting balance and shape to it, like the Wrongski pendant, is a “statement piece” to me. The raw iron and textured background… Juxtaposed with the clean finished lines of this hanging sculptural light fixture is especially striking. I am always looking for the unexpected: Risk can create incredible beauty and harmony. Here, the fixture is set in a surrounding that is totally contrary to what one would assume. The vintage, rusty, antiqued background with the angular, clean metal and modern shape of the lighting fixture is an unexpected contrast.

ROCK STEADY THE PIECE: Sender One Side Lamp THE DESIGNER: Christina Zamora FIND IT: brave-matter.com THE INSPIRATION: Christina Zamora's decision to employ waxed brass to pierce a piece of variegated salt crystal creates a statement-making lamp that ditches convention for something altogether more refreshing.

GEORGE AUGUSTO CREATIVE DIRECTOR STAUD.CLOTHING

Brave Matter’s pieces are… Overtly midcentury and, at times, lean toward 1960s Pop art. In this particular piece… I like that the beauty comes from only two elements: the brass stem and a salt crystal light fixture. Making such a simple piece is deceptively difficult. The mix of materials is… A perfect balance between feminine and masculine. Luxury design used to be… Primarily based on price, but I think that’s changed. Today, it’s about being special and the combination of high and low: the ability to fuse a wide range of elements and include a piece with some emotion or nostalgia. On trend: The midcentury revival exploded in the late ’90s and hasn’t let up since. This fixture fits right in with that aesthetic. In composition: The juxtaposition of the raw environment makes you further appreciate the total refinement of the light fixture. Such a contrast allows you to see certain aspects of each aesthetic with a clarity that would otherwise not be possible.

THE MUST-SEE EVENT IN HOME FURNISHINGS Celebrating 107 years, High Point Market is the world’s largest and most important home furnishings trade show. Each spring and fall, more than 75,000 home furnishings professionals come to High Point to experience the products, trends and innovations—and meet the people—that are moving home fashion forward. We spoke with three leading interior designers to hear what they were looking forward to seeing at the Spring 2017 High Point Market and capture just some of the energy and excitement that make Market Week the fashion week of home furnishings.


ADVERTISEMENT

Corey Damen Jenkins Corey Damen Jenkins & Associates, LLC “I’m excited to see some of the specific 2017 spring colors that were identified by the trend forecasters at Fashion Snoops—particularly the combination of Pantone 19-3921, Pantone 17-4911 and Pantone 15-309. Our firm is coincidentally building a home for one of our clients with these exact colors as the main palette of the first floor. Together they create a very fresh and vibrant color story, but it’s also sexy and sophisticated as well. I’m looking forward to pushing traditional boundaries with these hues. I also really appreciated what Jamie Drake had to say about how fashion and interior design are essentially in a symbiotic relationship. His statement, ‘Most of the rules can be broken if done with sophistication and style,’ should be printed on t-shirts and given out to clients.”

Kerrie Kelly Kerrie Kelly Design Lab “We are so inspired by the Old Havana and Cove trends that Fashion Snoops has forecast for the coming year. With our renewed access to the old-world elegance and excitement of Cuba and our constant desire to be near the coastline, these two color trends are paving the way for a much-anticipated shift in the design world. The Cove color trend speaks to us particularly because of our California roots. Every time we drive down the coast we are inspired by something new—waves breaking against the shore, a beachfront cafe or the laid-back style of our fellow Californians.”

Elissa Grayer Elissa Grayer Interior Design “I attend High Point Market to see and touch everything new in the industry. By being there twice a year I get to experience an incredible world of new products and absorb the talent and inspiration on display around me. I bring that enthusiasm back to my clients! Don’t forget to wear the most comfortable shoes and enjoy all the food and drink the showrooms provide.”

CLEVER DESIGN AND UNEXPECTED SOURCES OF INSPIRATION CONVERT THE HOME’S HARDEST-WORKING HUBS INTO GUEST-READY SPACES PRIMED FOR ENTERTAINING. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

Just like the best hostesses exude warmth and hospitality so, too, do standout spaces. A home that’s fit for entertaining should make handling a crowd look effortless, especially in its most hightraffic zones. Good flow, eye-catching finishes, high-performing appliances and, of course, comfort are fundamental factors in creating areas that invite crowds to linger. Whether it’s a kitchen built for sipping and socializing around a supersized island, or a powder room with enough pizzazz to make a lasting impression, your home’s busiest rooms should be ready to face the public at a moment’s notice. Here, a look at party-ready spaces and products that are as stylish as they are functional. 172 / LUXESOURCE.COM

RESTAURANT QUALITY SMITH HANES

The details-obsessed visionary behind the look of Atlanta’s hottest eateries, including The Optimist and Le Fat, is known for his warm, industrial aesthetic. For this handsome residential kitchen, designer Smith Hanes used reclaimed materials and earthy neutrals to create an atmosphere that feels both vintage and timeless. smithhanes.com

What can homeowners best learn from restaurant design? The most important thing is the lighting. The ideal plans incorporate multiple light sources on many surfaces, like under the open shelving and in the pantry. The goal is always to put people at ease and make them look and feel their best in their surroundings.

Definitely not for the clutter-prone, this showstopper pantry features custom-made steel-and-glass enclosures, playing off the materials used in the adjoining kitchen.

Describe your signature “soft industrial” look. We use materials that are characteristic of the industrial era, such as metal, glass and brick, to create a variety of textures. Pairing them with lighter colors, like cream, blush, pale gray or even, in this case, wood tones, helps to create a softer, warming effect.

PHOTO: ANDREW THOMAS LEE. STYLING: THOM DRIVER.

Share your vision for the space. The kitchen is meant to function as a place where a large family can gather, so we did an open plan with enough seating for 10 to 12 people. The client had a photo of a wall of cabinets made from old doors and windows; that was the inspiration for the glass pantry.

IN THE NAVY While a simmering pot is usually best kept out of sight from guests, you might want to make an exception for the new collaboration between venerable French cookware company Staub and Food 52. Sporting the on-trend combination of midnight blue with brass accents, the collection is a stylish addition to your stovetop repertoire. food52.com

In recent years, the wall space behind the stove has become the de rigueur place to make an artistic statement in the kitchen. Take the chevron backsplash from Nashville designer April Tomlin, for example, who created the Navajo-inspired design shown here out of MDF covered with fire-safe paint. “I was bored with traditionally used tile,” she says. Open shelves and a snowy white quartz countertop ensure all eyes are on her handiwork. apriltomlin.com

COOL RUNNINGS

DUTCH treat For this sophisticated kitchen, San Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis found her muse in an unusual place: a Flemish still-life painting. A moody mix of materials, including steel-framed glass upper cabinets and a gray island topped with Belgian blue limestone, stand in stark contrast with white lower cabinets and a Calacatta Gold marble backsplash. Low-lighting creates ambience and intrigue—the perfect dinner party guests. nicolehollis.com

Ask any chef or caterer: An oversize refrigerator is the unsung hero of effortless entertaining. And with a tray that slides out to accommodate commercial-size sheet pans, the latest built-in model from Blue Star is both workhorse and eye candy— available in 750 customizable colors, including this deep indigo. Its interior is just as attractive as its exterior, thanks to a sleek stainless-steel lining, which makes it not only goodlooking, but better at insulating cold air, as well. bluestarcooking.com

Smoky Rose wallpaper by House of Hackney sets a charming tone for this Studio McGee-designed powder room. A Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. sconce and Kohler Purist faucet break up the high-contrast black-and-white scheme with warm, brass accents.

Just because it’s a half bath doesn’t mean it can’t be full of style. Small in square footage but big in personality, powder rooms are the perfect forum to express your individuality and design philosophy—after all, you’ve got a captive audience. One way to make an impression? Let a unique wallpaper guide the overall concept, as designer Shea McGee did in this Salt Lake City powder room. “I fell in love with the vintage vibe of this rose print, which inspired the classic feel of the bath as well as the more masculine black-and-white palette,” she says. For more guest-ready powder rooms, turn the page. studio-mcgee.com

In this bathroom by Estee Stanley, the large-scale Martinique wallpaper makes a bold statement.

CHAIR

When metalworker Xavier Pauchard created the prototype for the galvanized French bistro chair in the early 20th century, he intended the simple sheet-metal creation to be used in factories. One wonders what he might think of this new iteration of the classic form. Party-ready in chic brass and fine leather, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come a long way from its humble origins. michelevarian.com

Stair GAZING

Hospitality begins at the front door; so, consider the foyer the cohost of your welcoming party, and style it accordingly. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better way to make a first impression than with a statement-making staircase. In this dramatic space, Los Angeles designer Betsy Burnham melded modern and Moroccan elements for maximum impact. In stark black and white, the mosaic tile stair risers are both sophisticated and playful. burnhamdesign.com

Not all gatherings require formal attire and canapes; sometimes, the most memorable evenings unfurl over a raucous game of Scrabble with friends. This sunny spot by Dallas-based Collins Interiors was conceived as a casual place to entertain and play board games. And since every festivity-filled night has a morning after, the area doubles as a breakfast nook, where the upholstered barrel chairs offer a comfortable perch to sip coffee and ease into the day. collins-interiors.com

Having built a reputation for creating romantic, old masters-inspired arrangements, the team behind New York City-based floral design firm Saipua shares its favorite tips for showcasing the beauty of natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty. saipua.com

Select foliage with interesting movement and choose an unexpected vessel. Use flower specimens in a range of shapes, textures and colors: Building a palette that includes some darker moments helps create drama. Consider the existing architecture and dĂŠcor of the space that your arrangement will inhabit. The container, flower selections and arrangement size should always complement the interiors.

Good riddance to the days when the kitchen remained hidden from guests. Today, it’s more common for cookspaces to feature dazzling finishes meant for prime time, as in this downtown NYC loft designed by Jenny Wolf. With old-world herringbone wood floors, dark gray-stained cabinetry and open shelving, the effect is equal parts rustic and industrial. A generous island provides plenty of surface area for guests to congregate and graze. The shining star of the space, however, is the backsplash. “I love an antique mirror wall, and I thought it would be a great way to reflect some of the light from the three large casement windows on the opposite wall,” she says. “Not only does it make a beautiful backsplash, but it’s also surprisingly easy to clean.” jennywolfinteriors.com

Sideboards are often perfunctory pieces meant to quietly sit, well, on the sidelines. Not so for this stunner from Thatcher and Shannon Davis, the husband-and-wife duo behind design company Selamat. Inspired by pioneering Australian designer Florence Broadhurst’s Pyramids fabric, this hand-carved wood credenza is the perfect combination of Italian 1970s Brutalist geometry and Hollywood Regency glamour. selamatdesigns.com

ECLECTIC MIX

“Formal, but never fussy” could be the motto for this elegant dining room by Santa Monica, California-based interior designer Jeffrey Alan Marks. “I like to put my own spin on a room this traditional to keep it from feeling too stuffy,” he says. While the detail-rich crown molding was already in place, Marks added wainscot and lacquered the walls deep blue to ground the space, which seamlessly blends old and new. A contemporary light fixture from David Weeks, an abstract screenprint by James Nares and a jewel-toned geometric rug add just the right amount of edge, and go a long way in creating this lush and layered look. jam-design.com

bedside manners

An overnight guest should feel completely at home and pampered at the same time. To that end, designer Blue Carreon follows a simple philosophy: “I like to put as much thought into guest bedrooms as I do for my own room,” he says. One look at his bedroom in Manila, and you can see why this is a winning approach. Dark gray paneled walls create a cocoon-like effect that’s ideal for slumber, while fresh flowers, a water carafe and plenty of reading material make great bedside companions. With a space this inviting, your guests may never want to leave. bluecarreonhome.com

INTERNATIONAL ART DEALER ELENA VON KOHN IS RENOWNED WORLDWIDE FOR HER DISCERNING EYE AND INFORMED PERSPECTIVE ON FINE ART. She spends much of her time traveling the globe, meeting with her extensive network of private clients, including entrepreneurs, celebrities, museums and even ministries of culture. When she is not globe-trotting, the art consultant, collector and international personality can be found in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she runs her art consulting company, ArtFortune. The firm offers Von Kohn’s highly sought-after individual expertise, as well as a team of researchers who advise on buying, selling, appraising, marketing and provenance, among other things. Born into a family of famous art collectors, Von Kohn began pursuing her art education at the age of six, ultimately going on to earn a master’s degree in art and art history. Currently representing pieces by Rubens, van Dyck, Manet, Basquiat and Warhol, she is known for the A-list artists she touts. “I am very fortunate to work with unbelievable, inspiring art,” Von Kohn says. “In addition to my clients, it is the best part of my line of work.”

“Every piece I work with has a unique story waiting to be told.”

One of Elena Von Kohn’s most recent and notable representations is a collaborative piece by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crocodile, 1984. This acrylic and silk-screen painting on canvas measures 114.2" x 178" and is among the most impressive examples of Warhol and Basquiat’s joint creations. Bruno Bischofberger originally commissioned the piece, bringing together two artists who were as fascinating as they were contentious.

TONY CALVIS + GARY WYANT CALVIS WYANT LUXURY HOMES 8755 East Bell Road Scottsdale, Arizona 480.905.0200 tony@calviswyant.com calviswyant.com Tony Calvis and Gary Wyant were introduced in the early 1980s. Shortly after, their first joint project began, and they discovered a shared drive to deliver the best customer experience—and the most beautiful results—possible. “Creating stunning homes which our clients are proud to own is a great job to have,” Calvis says. “We like knowing that our homes support their lifestyles.” While skilled in a range of architectural styles characteristic to Arizona, Wyant has become known for his light-filled open floor plans. Of the firm’s success and renowned reputation, Wyant points to the team’s dedication to quality as the determining factor. “We have a collection of people who need to do things the right way,” Wyant says. “That inability to live with yourself if you know something isn’t right runs through our ranks.”

Home building is meaningful work. Every residence will become the backdrop of someone’s life story.

How would you describe the personality of your business? We are open in our dealings, organized in our processes and accountable for our promises. Perhaps most importantly, we take our work seriously; but ourselves, not so much! How do you think your clients would characterize you? Clients tell us again and again that Calvis Wyant’s thoroughness and organization make building a custom home easy, quick and fun. What do you like most about your job? The chance to do important work. Sure, building custom homes is not brain surgery, but a great home does help people live their lives more comfortably and enjoyably. Who has most influenced your work? Calvis: Gary Wyant! Professionally, he always finds the most straightforward solution to every design dilemma. The answer is often hidden in plain sight, but Gary is the only one who sees it. Personally, there is no one more humble and caring. He just doesn’t have an ego. What projects have brought you the most satisfaction and why? Projects with the most engaged clients are always the most satisfying. What are your favorite hobbies? Calvis: Building houses. That is until my first grandchild arrived. Now I like to be a grandpa!

This desert modern home weaves a Bali-inspired floor plan with outdoor entertaining spaces, creating a beautiful resort-like design, where homeowners don’t need to leave town to take a vacation.

SCOTT PFEIFFER SONORA WEST DEVELOPMENT 8937 East Bell Road, Suite 100 Scottsdale, Arizona 602.667.3145 scott@sonorawestdev.com sonorawestdev.com Scott Pfeiffer was working on a degree in finance at Arizona State University when he took a position as a carpenter. It wasn’t long before the satisfaction of producing tangible objects inspired a change in career. In 1999, after nearly 10 years exploring the field, he founded Sonora West Development. “When I launched my firm, I found that my expertise was in helping clients design and build their custom homes from start to finish,” he says. “Not only do we help them construct their home, we also assist in the initial plans and interior selections. We are known for producing a superior quality home, but also making sure the design and interiors are timeless and contemporary. We are hired for our building expertise for sure, but also for our design talents.”

Every decision I make is exactly what I would do if the home was for my own family.

Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Yes. I try to allow the architecture to shine while eliminating unwanted details. I believe a home should be timeless, and too much fluff makes a home look dated after a few years. What do you like most about your job? I love being invited over by my clients so they can show me how they took an empty house and turned it into their family’s home. It makes me proud to watch a client show off their home with such enthusiasm. What projects have brought you the most satisfaction and why? I would say the most satisfying projects have been our complex, hillside contemporary homes. How do you define a successful project? The houses turn out best when we have a great team environment between all parties, including the homeowner, the architect, the designer and me. What is your most prized possession? I don’t quite know if they are possessions, but my Hungarian vizslas! I love my dogs, and they make my nights happy. What are your favorite hobbies? I enjoy the outdoors. My business is highly stressful, and being in nature helps me reset so I can return to work with a fresh outlook.

This 10,000-square-foot home is nestled in the Upper Canyon region of Silverleaf in Scottsdale, Arizona. It showcases custom interiors by Scott Pfeiffer.

A

nyone who has ever watched a relay race knows the smooth passing of the baton is emblematic of well-orchestrated teamwork. A bad handoff can often spell disaster, but when done correctly the transition is so seamless it can be difficult to discern where one runner stops and the next begins. For one lucky pair of empty nesters, the design team they assembled to work on their home in the Silverleaf subdivision of Scottsdale achieved a similar level of synergy that allowed them to move from planning phase to building completion in what seemed like one unified motion. Seeking respite from the harsh Midwestern winters of their primary residence in Illinois, the couple in question had decided to venture southwest due to a desire for a more casual setting from which to pursue outdoor activities. “They wanted their Arizona home to be more relaxed and have an

element of rusticity they don’t have in their prewar Chicago apartment,” says designer David Michael Miller, who took on the job with builder Anthony Salcito and project manager Jenn Scopacasa. Architect Erik Peterson, along with colleague and fellow architect Scott Carson, joined landscape designer Jeff Berghoff to round out the team. From the start, Salcito learned the clients deeply admired the architecture of Italy and southern France, an important design element. “They had definite opinions on size and scale and knew they wanted something quintessentially European,” he says. Using this essential input, Peterson formulated a first-round concept for the unusual V-shaped property. “We started with the views and determined which rooms were best suited to various locales on the lot,” the architect says, explaining the homeowners wanted the master bedroom to focus on the city lights, with the kitchen enjoying the morning light and LUXESOURCE.COM / 223

views of the McDowell Mountain Range. “Rather than a predisposed floor plan, we let things happen organically.” In keeping with what emerged as a rural Mediterranean theme, Peterson imagined the property as a homestead that had been added to over time, and he placed what might have been these “additions” at a variety of angles to jibe with the quirky property. For optimal privacy, the house was pushed as far back as possible from the street, which kept the garages out of view from the living spaces. “It also allowed us to introduce a long meandering driveway, in keeping with the European-style architecture,” Salcito says. The team then selected materials like clay tile for the roof and stucco to establish an air of authenticity. Inside, Miller introduced elements that worked in tandem with the architecture. “Erik was great at embracing the clients’ desire for texture and informality,” says the designer, who continued that same concept with antique French

LX_AZ36_HOM_MillerFrank_12.indd 227

limestone fireplace surrounds and wire-brush-painted millwork. “We needed touchstones with real age, and things like the reclaimed ceiling beams and the outside stone pushing through into the kitchen are iconic reflections of rural Mediterranean architecture.” The clients also requested rooms that felt natural and serene, and the team responded with a neutral monochromatic color scheme along with subtle interjections of texture and pattern. “We used a lot of linen, as there is a natural connection between linens and rural domestic settings,” Miller explains. “The restrained use of pattern in the living room was confined to the textiles on the pillows and the hand-knotted rug.” As a result of the muted scheme, a painted-glass mural and botanical photogravures that bookend the living and dining rooms take center stage. “The clients found the Art Decoinspired mural, and initially I was concerned it might be

too polished, but it turned out to make the exact casually elegant statement they desired,” Miller says. A design shift is evident in the master suite, where the aesthetic is noticeably more refined. Here, the use of color— a variety of hushed shades of blue—distinguishes the private quarters from the rest of the house. The adjoining bathroom extends the tone and attitude with gossamer drapes, marble floors and a nickel-coated tub. When it came to detailing the outdoor living spaces, Miller credits Berghoff for establishing a noteworthy backdrop. “Jeff understands the big picture and made the landscape fit the direction it needed to go,” the designer says. Just outside the great room, Berghoff introduced a cream-colored flagstone patio that complements the palette of the exterior

LX_AZ36_HOM_MillerFrank_12.indd 231

materials. From here, Miller created a welcoming lounge area and dining space under the shade of the loggia. The architecture also dictated the plantings of rosemary, Texas sage and green agaves in the front yard and myrtle, sage and olive trees in the back. “The various shades of green and silvery grays all reinforce the Mediterranean feel,” Berghoff explains. “Combined with the rock walls and other finishes, the house is an unassuming jewel that connects perfectly with its surroundings.” Similarly, connectivity defined the overall project for the design professionals involved, who related to each other effortlessly from start to finish. “We never drew a line between design and architecture,” Peterson says. “We went for seamless interaction, and that’s what we got.”

A Drummonds soaking tub with a Lefroy Brooks tub filler, both from Clyde Hardware, makes a dramatic statement in the master bath, where marble floors add a touch of elegance. Mac’s Custom Drapery fabricated the Jasper drapes from John Brooks Incorporated. David Michael Miller Associates designed the custom drapery hardware.

he beauty and grandeur of the American West has long been the backdrop to countless ambitious engineering feats, like the Hoover Dam and the breathtaking hiking trails carved into the earth by the Work Projects Administration in the 1930s. And today, the formidable, rocky terrain continues to inspire modern projects, including the contemporary abode architect Ron Robinette designed and built on 75 acres bordering the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. “Our goal was for this house to blend in with the desert,” says Robinette, who, for privacy, sited the house in a saddle between two large land peninsulas.

Likewise, a towering 16-foot steel ramada with a wood lattice shades the house and makes use of the desert breeze. “The structure is a giant umbrella,” Robinette explains. “It also captures the wind going through the canyon and brings it into the house.” The residence, which includes a guesthouse in a similar style, is the latest in a long line of projects the owners—entrepreneurs who recently sold their technology company—have taken on over the years, and this is their most ambitious one yet. “People come up and ask how we found this lot, and the answer is that we created it,” the wife says, “making it look like the house was just airdropped into its place.”

The arrival area, which features a long covered walkway, showcases the materials Robinette chose for the exterior: stucco, glass, porcelain tile and split-face stone. Flanking the path are specimen cacti arranged by landscape designer John Stropko, who also ensured the surrounding desert appeared untouched.

Interior designer Lynn Boutross carried the contemporary feel of the architecture to the interiors. In the great room, a wall sculpture by Christian Burchard is illuminated by the skylight over the fireplace, which is clad with porcelain tile from Artistic Tile in Chicago.

Before construction could commence, landscape designer John Stropko had to carve a flat building site out of the hillside. “The beautiful setting you see today was created by removing up to 30 feet of solid rock,” he says. Yet despite shifting the terrain, he took careful steps to make the site appear as if it had never been touched. To blend the freshly cut rocks with the reddish undisturbed ones, Stropko carefully stained the harsh white surfaces, even duplicating the veining and cracks on parts of the granite to match its surroundings. Mature trees, transplanted giant saguaros and camouflaged retaining walls veneered with excavated rubble complete the illusion of a natural environment. “The extraordinary thing here is that anyone who visits the home would have no idea the site was originally a hillside,” Stropko says. “It’s a magical place.”

_LX_AZ36_HOM_Robinette_14.indd 241

Christening him the “land whisperer,” Chicago interior designer Lynn Boutross was inspired by Stropko’s exterior work for the interiors. “I used his knowledge of Arizona and the Southwest to select materials that would look good in the harsh desert sunlight,” she says. Most of the year, the rock reflects the sun’s red tones into the house. During the summer monsoons, however, the entire valley blooms, casting a greenish hue into the interior. To make the home feel part of the land, as requested by the wife, Boutross selected travertine flooring with a range of browns and silvery grays, a neutral base that complements the natural exterior palette. In the great room, a comfortable sofa and a pair of mohair-covered lounge chairs create a cozy place for conversation, while custom walnut kitchen cabinetry

Stropko, who landscaped the grounds with low-water plants, designed concrete walkways with irregular borders that meander from the patio through the property. Guided by game trails that already existed in the foothills, he carved out new hiking loops, one of which he mapped using a drone.

and a tongue-in-groove ceiling add extra warmth. Like the one that anchors the outdoor living area, the massive fireplace surround extends through the roofline and includes a concealed skylight that allows light to wash down. “Penetrating the roof makes it feel lightweight,” Robinette says, “like it’s hovering over us.” Throughout the house, natural light sets off the many metallic accents Boutross incorporated. “Some of the metals are raw and super textured, while some are smooth and polished,” she says. “I like that interplay.” The thread in the drapery has a metallic sheen, while

_LX_AZ36_HOM_Robinette_14.indd 244

the shagreen leather panels that clad the floating feature wall in the master bedroom have a subtle gleam. True to the goal, the contemporary residence perfectly complements its desert surroundings—as well as its owners, who can be found hiking with their white golden retrievers on the newly created trails or relaxing on one of the home’s many patios. “You can see almost all the way to the mountains in Mexico,” the wife says. “This project stretched all of our abilities as far as anything could stretch them, but it turned out so well. This is the perfect house for us.”

Trained at a floral school in Paris, Wilson (opposite) brings effortless flair and unexpected touches to her arrangements, which she puts together at open tables in the shop. Her inventory includes hellebores (above) and brightly colored moon cacti housed in gold pots (right).

B “I GET FLOWERS FRESH EVERY DAY. I REALLY BELIEVE IN BUYING LOCALLY—IT’S A HUGE PASSION.”

eauty always clears my mind,” says Teresa Wilson, proprietor of Camelback Flowershop in Phoenix. For Wilson, beauty in her line of work often comes from the unexpected—unconventional materials like branches, creosote and herbs. “I’ll forage anything,” she says. “Once, I came back from hiking a trail with a wrapped tarp of cholla in a basket.” These found natural objects nestle in her floral arrangements alongside roses, peonies and tulips. She also favors branches, especially mossy ones, whose long lines add a garden feel to her exquisite designs. Wilson’s early passion for beauty led her to—where else?—Paris, where she studied at the École des Fleuristes de Paris after noticing an ad for the floral school in a magazine. “The French way of floral design is so incredibly not pretentious,” she says. “It’s unfussy, unforced, organic. I helped bring that style to Phoenix.” (Readers of Wilson’s blog will discover a pithy post she wrote about the 19th-century painter Henri Fantin-Latour, with an image of one of his luscious floral still lifes.) Opening Camelback Flowershop—appropriately situated in an area that used to boast citrus groves and sits only a short walk from a date farm—was, for Wilson, “one of those childhood dreams, a romantic idea,” she says. “As a little girl, my dad would always ask me what I wanted to do, and I always loved

nature and art. It was a fun dream. I didn’t think it would ever be a reality.” But with an artist for a mother and an entrepreneur father, her childhood fantasy had a ring of destiny about it. Although Wilson’s shop is known for its unique stems, such as blushing bride protea and king protea, much of her inventory, from zinnias and sunflowers to dahlias and Queen Anne’s lace, comes from nearby farms. “I get flowers fresh every day,” she says. “I really believe in buying locally—it’s a huge passion.” Wilson has even begun collaborating with local farmers, advising them which blooms to plant, with the promise of selling them in her shop. Connecting others with her passion seems to drive much of Wilson’s retail philosophy. When customers admitted being unsure about how to arrange succulents, she created a Succulent Bar, where staff helps visitors create their own

masterpieces using numerous plant options—the shop receives 300 new succulents a week—along with crystals, quartz, rocks, vessels and sand. “People can come here and play and get a quick tutorial,” she says. “It’s also a fun place for girls to come with their girlfriends and a bottle of wine.” While many women turn to Wilson for her ability to create elaborate bridal bouquets of unexpected elements, Wilson admits she herself would choose a more quaint arrangement— “probably just a handful of blooming herbs. Something simple, small and green: dark plum basil, blooming oregano, thyme and mint.” This rugged take on beauty isn’t surprising, coming from someone who clusters foraged wildflowers in hotel ice buckets when she travels. “I think having something from outside in your house makes you slow down,” Wilson says. “Something so fleeting and beautiful makes you pause.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 251

CLEAN SLATE DRAMATIC DETAILS ELEVATE A PHOENIX HOME INSPIRED BY THE ROCKIES AND CONCEIVED FOR A COUPLE LOOKING TO START ANEW. WRITTEN BY ALEXANDRA DROSU / PHOTOGRAPHY BY MARK BOISCLAIR

Interior designer Claire Ownby created a warm, contemporary conversation lounge for a Phoenix house designed by architects Charles Cunniffe and Jim Kehoe with a dramatic double-height steel-and-stone fireplace; the custom chairs from John Brooks Incorporated wear Holly Hunt fabric. The walnut-topped coffee table, also custom, is from Rotsen Furniture in Miami, and the rug is from Tai Ping Carpets in San Francisco.

A

fter spending 16 years raising a family in their 1950s-era Phoenix home, a couple decided it was time to embrace a fresh start, one in which their new house would reflect a more streamlined lifestyle. They sought something unique that didn’t struggle for attention, uncluttered yet warm, and they wanted to bring the outdoors inside. “It was a rebirth,” says interior designer Claire Ownby. Luckily, the couple already had the perfect lot for their new residence: the spot where their current family home sat. The plan was to demolish the structure, building a new one in its place. To celebrate this turning point, the owners staged an epic three-hour paintball war in the old house right before it was razed. “Doors were torn off the hinges and turned into shields, holes punched through walls for surprise enemy attacks,” the husband says. “It was a day of infamy!” Two years later, in place of the old home now stands a serene modern house that takes its cues from the architecture of the Rocky Mountains, a design idea that struck, appropriately, on a family skiing trip. Flipping through a magazine while on vacation in Telluride, Colorado, the husband came across a picture of a house by the Aspenbased firm Charles Cunniffe Architects. “They noticed an overwhelming character of warmth in our work,” says senior project architect Jim Kehoe. Originally, Kehoe, along with principal architect Charles Cunniffe, set about designing a house using primarily wood, “but it was a little too heavy,” he notes. “So timber was replaced by steel, which brought a lightness to the home. We took from the mountain what they liked and evolved things that didn’t quite match the setting.”

An informal dining area is open to the kitchen, which features a dual-purpose storage and dividing wall with sapele-wood cabinets by Finely Designed. The backsplash tiles are from Craftsman Court Ceramics, and the granite for the table and island came from Cactus Stone & Tile. Custom dining stools from John Brooks Incorporated are upholstered in Townsend Leather.

Rather than displaying artwork, a hallway wall supports three LCD screens that cycle through the clients’ family photos. Cyber Technology Group installed the Crestron home automation systems; the rift-sawn-oak floors are from Custom Hardwood Floors.

Creating a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces was also vital, and measures had to be taken to mitigate the Arizona heat. “Using window-glazing technology, orienting spaces to avoid direct sun exposure and incorporating bold architectural overhangs all contribute to keeping the home comfortable year-round,” Cunniffe says. The dramatic approach offers a view straight through the house to the central fireplace and the courtyard beyond. A massive double-height fireplace, consisting of a blackenedsteel vertical panel between narrower columns of stone, anchors the conversation lounge, which is flanked by the family room to the left and an informal dining space and kitchen to the right. “The natural blackened-steel

_LX_AZ36_HOM_OwnbyPhoenix_10.indd 257

panels were a great material to tie the stone and wood together,” says builder John Schultz. Boasting rough-sawncedar ceilings, the space reflects the trio of elements the architects used throughout the house: stone, steel and cedar, all of which Schultz sourced locally. These materials, in turn, were the inspiration for the neutral hues Ownby chose for the interiors. “The palette is a play of both cool and warm tones,” she says. “It’s a repetition of what was done with the architecture.” For furnishings, Ownby selected monochromatic fabrics and contemporary lines. “The interiors were approached simplistically to give the impression the family was living in a minimalistic yet warm and inviting space,” she says.

Adjacent to the central living space is a more casual lounge area that serves as a family room. The custom sectionals and ottomans, from Classic Custom Upholstery, are covered in a Holly Hunt chocolate velvet. Roadrunner Glass installed the windows by Western Window Systems throughout the house, and the rolled steel for the fireplace façade is from Ranbro Steel Works.

_LX_AZ36_HOM_OwnbyPhoenix_10.indd 259

One of the most ingenious details is in the kitchen: a striking architectural wall that doubles as storage. The wife enjoys cooking, but she didn’t want the culinary clutter visible. “We had to conceal everything,” Ownby says. “The dividing wall was built with pocket doors—there are hidden finger pulls in between the reveals. Aesthetically, we wanted it to feel like an extension of the living space.” A custom high-top table made of Blackheart Leather granite from Cactus Stone fabricated on-site offers a casual eating space. The glass doors in the dining area slide open to the backyard, beyond which is a rustic yet modern hardscape that leads to a pool surrounded by fire pits and seating

_LX_AZ36_HOM_OwnbyPhoenix_10.indd 260

areas. A low wall was also constructed “to separate the pool garden from the shaded walk through the mesquite and citrus groves,” says Kimberly Arevalo, who landscaped the grounds. That mature grove of mesquite trees, in fact, was one of the only elements from their previous residence the couple wanted to keep, along with precious photographs. “We have a wall in the house that has monitors that continuously cycle through about 1,000 images from our lives,” the husband says. Soon, he adds, they will include new memories from a beautiful, updated home “that fits our lifestyle—who we are and how we live now.”
