ON THE COVER: A stone water feature engages with the desert in a Scottsdale house designed by architect Wendell Burnette. Inspired by cracked boulders that dot the landscape, Burnette used rammed-earth walls and enlisted Wayne Holsapple of Specialty Fireplaces to create an outdoor fireplace that incorporates an “arrow” rock found on-site.

EDITOR’S LETTER

EYE ON DESIGN Design is not only a transportive experience but a reflection of our culture, fashion, art and architecture as well. At its best, great residential design summons the idea of a place and is rooted and connected to the local landscape, adding a sense of appropriateness and indigenous commentary. For this special Design 2017 issue, we’ve thrown open the doors and uncovered the best of what makes a home stylish. From kitchens and color to architecture, materials and outdoor living, we present inspiration, ideas and expert advice from top local talent in the industry—architects, interior designers, builders and other design pros. This January/February issue also marks our sixth-annual Gold List, a collection of individuals and firms from across the country who are at the top of their game. I hope this latest issue leaves you inspired and filled with a head full of rousing design ideas!

INSPIRATION

Eldorado Stone has been at the forefront of its industry for the past 45 years. From its humble beginnings to the international presence it boasts today, Eldorado’s core philosophy has remained the same—believability. Each of the company’s natural stones is replicated to the finest details of texture and color, yet offers a lightweight, concrete stone veneer solution. VARIABLE OFFERINGS Inspiration is key to Eldorado Stone’s culture. Every product is designed to evoke a unique sense of space, whether modern, traditional or highly rustic. With 150-plus colors and numerous textures and shapes from which to choose, architects and designers are able to inspire their customers with limitless applications.

MODERN DESIGN The newest of Eldorado’s extensive options, the Modern Collection features 34 new colors and 6 new profiles. Developed to accentuate contemporary designs, these stones pair refined color with clean lines to blend or contrast with neighboring elements. The results are spaces that come alive, speak for themselves and take center stage. Proof that less truly can be more.

Eldorado Stone’s philosophy creates authentic architectural products that transform spaces through color and texture.

ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP Eldorado Stone products are handcrafted through a detail-oriented, laborintensive process. Each stone is hand-painted by master artisans, infusing multiple layers of color to the stone’s unique textured surface to create a highly authentic appearance.

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

What do you enjoy most about design? The thing I love most about design is the story that it can tell. I gravitate toward spaces that have something to say about the owner: where they’ve been, what they like, who they love. Soulless spaces are not my thing, and I’m obsessed with creating a globally inspired home for myself. Whenever I travel I seek out smaller design stores, antiques and flea markets, and boutiques that feature local designers. My biggest design and travel pet peeve is people who buy kitschy souvenirs. Prized possessions: I’ve moved quite a bit while chasing my career. It’s exhilarating, but it also means I tend to clean house every year or two. So, if an object sticks with me, then it’s quite special. My favorites include a set of hand-carved olive wood bowls inlaid with bone detailing that I picked up while traveling through Africa, a vintage brass bar cart I drove three hours one-way to pick up off an antiques dealer, and a wall-sized map of the world. It wasn’t expensive and doesn’t have a fancy frame, but in all the places I’ve tried to make look like home over the years, it’s always occupied a wall. Favorite Luxe interview: Photographer and designer Martyn Thompson was a fascinating person to sit across a couch from. If his eclectic SoHo loft wasn’t inspiration enough, then his stories of moving to New York and finding his niche in the art world did the trick.

CHELSAE ANNE

Photographer / Palm Beach

What would be your dream work assignment? I would love to photograph for an Anthropologie catalog one day. Best career advice you’ve ever received: The lens and photographer are more important than the camera. Current design obsession: A blue velvet couch. If you could have one hidden talent, what would it be? Resiliency. Favorite book on your coffee table: One featuring the works of American artist John Singer Sargent. Most meaningful object in your house: A four-poster platform bed that my husband made for us.

LX_COM11_Contributors.indd 108

CHRISTINA HOLMES Photographer / New York I find creative inspiration from… My home state of Michigan. Nature and the natural linear landscapes of the countryside have always influenced me. How did you get started in your career? I shot reportage at a party where guests’ shoes were being shined with Dom Pérignon. Name one person you wish you could photograph. I would love to shoot a portrait of Paul Newman. What would your superpower be? Empathy and invisibility. Projecting emotion into every shot but never being seen in it. If I had a spare $20,000 to blow, I’d buy… Shoes for every occasion. And maybe even a day of my own time. Words of wisdom: Take the time to see the bigger picture in all that you do.

MAILE PINGEL Writer / Los Angeles My biggest creative influences come from… My library. At nearly 2,500 vintage and out-of-print titles, it’s pretty much an endless source of inspiration. My husband put a moratorium on buying any more, but I’ve snuck in a few! Whose work has impacted you the most design-wise? Big L.A. designers of the 1980s— especially Kalef Alaton, whose famous house in West Hollywood I drive by all the time. I think a lot about how he, and so many others like him, would have continued to shape California design had they been given longer lives. He was only 49 years old when he died due to complications from AIDS. Assuming that money were no object, I would purchase… A little Effegibi home spa. I’m so fascinated by all the new wellness products out there, like compact steam and chromotherapy designs for residential use. Ideal work trip: I would love to go on a driving tour of the United Kingdom to visit all the beautifully restored properties by The Landmark Trust. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? Just keep doing what you’re doing. Also, don’t wait so long to get a dog. If not a writer, I would be… A landscape designer—I’d love to create beautiful gardens for people to enjoy.

RADAR / NEW GUARD ALEXANDER M. REID ⊲

New York | alexandermreid.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Alexander M. Reid thrives on the juxtaposition of vintage and contemporary design for homes that are both comfortable and stylish. Reid’s fashion-forward aesthetic has endeared him to some of couture’s biggest names: leading him to design spaces for Rebecca Minkoff, Coco Rocha and Jenni Kayne. Using different textures, materials and bold color, especially moody black, he transforms spaces with warmth and depth. ON THE HORIZON: Reid’s agenda is full for 2017: He’s in the process of designing homes everywhere from Manhattan and the Hamptons to Los Angeles. IN HIS WORDS: “I’ve never been too keen on following the trends in home design—or anywhere, really. I operate with the knowledge and have complete faith that good design will never go out of style.”

▼ MEREDITH ELLIS

Austin | meredithellisdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Meredith Ellis’ aesthetic is informed by the greats she worked for earlier in her career: Bunny Williams, Thomas Beeton and Michael S. Smith. James–her home décor showroom housed in a tiny Texas bungalow–has a cult following, further cementing her authority in ATX’s rapidly growing design community. ON THE HORIZON: Sister Parish Design, Elson & Company and Lisa Fine, among others, are joining the James showroom, and Ellis’ vignette for AmericasMart Atlanta debuts in January. IN HER WORDS: “I’m not afraid of tradition and the classical elements that have been around forever because I know how to incorporate them into today’s lifestyle. My goal is to give my clients’ homes a soul that becomes a part of them.”

⊳ MAX HUMPHREY

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Max Humphrey’s designs are pure Americana with a whole lot of edge (think Rosie the Riveter meets punk rock). His non-linear background as a musician and film and television producer influences his crafty style and eye for the extraordinary. ON THE HORIZON: Humphrey is currently designing his first restaurant, The Cutlery, and two retail spaces for City Home, a funky home goods store. His first line of custom fabrics will launch one by one in January and will be made in the states and sold exclusively on his website.

MAGGIE CRUZ ▲

Miami | maggiecruzdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: It’s easy to spot a Maggie Cruz home when you walk in the door. Cruz raises the bar for Miami design with an unmistakable polish and burst of color. Incorporating bold art into her rooms, she brings to life the flair and exuberance of the city. ON THE HORIZON: Though she’s always designed bespoke pieces for clients, Cruz is launching her first collection of stand-alone pieces available for purchase this spring. Maggie Cruz Home Collection represents her ode to Miami, inspired by her Cuban heritage. IN HER WORDS: “I’m drawn to the vibrancy and energy of Miami and to the texture and history of Cuba. My design style is grounded in tradition and balanced with modern sensibilities.”

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 114

IN HIS WORDS: “I like every room to show signs of life. You can tell a project is mine because it will be slightly undone, with artwork everywhere, and there won’t be any karate-chopped pillows.”

⊳ CAITLIN MURRAY Los Angeles | blacklacquerdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Though Caitlin Murray is meticulous and detailoriented, her interiors are as effortlessly cool as they come. Innovative combinations in pattern, color and material make for joyful spaces that reflect the laid-back sophistication of their Southern California surroundings. ON THE HORIZON: Murray is expanding into product design this year and is currently working on an e-commerce extension to her website in hopes of launching a furniture line in the future. IN HER WORDS: “I lead with intuition and emotion, which makes every project unique. The creative process feels very fluid to me, and too much analyzing throws me off.”

⊳ WESLEY MOON

New York | wesleymoon.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Wesley Moon’s bold aesthetic and unrestrained use of wild patterns and statement-making pieces attract the most fashionable clientele. ON THE HORIZON: T. Camille Martin of TCM Studio and Aaron McIntire from Gunn Landscape Architecture are aiding Moon with the customization of a West Village triplex penthouse, created from two adjoining town houses. IN HIS WORDS: “I don’t like rooms that feel ‘decorated.’ I prefer a curated collection of beautiful furniture and objects that make it seem like the room has been evolving for years, and will continue to do so.”

STEPHANIE HAUPTLI

Los Angeles | hauptlihaus.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Stephanie Hauptli’s European background informs her multidisciplinary design work, where she blends functionality with beauty in ethereal, contemporary spaces. ON THE HORIZON: Hauptli is working on an NYC loft, an L.A. yoga studio and a restoration project with her husband, architect Andrew Obermeyer.

COLIN GRIFFITH ⊲

IN HER WORDS: “My interiors feature a strong contrast: This could be as simple as an icy gray fabric paired with an otherwise warm palette.”

Denver | griffithid.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Colin Griffith’s designs have the ease and coziness of classic Colorado design, without being over-designed. They feel lived-in and nostalgic, as if they’ve been family homes for decades. His trick is a curated use of comfortable, classic elements remastered in luxurious materials. ON THE HORIZON: Griffith will be traveling to Europe, South America and Asia for design inspiration this year with the hope of building his network of craftsmen and specialists. IN HIS WORDS: “I love seeing and hearing my clients talk about their projects with an increased awareness of space, function and how they want to live within the home.”

⊳ LAURA KEHOE

WHY WE LOVE HER: Laura Kehoe pulls inspiration from everywhere: blasting music in her studio while leafing through books and looking at images from her travels. Her style is true to both her California roots and to her firm’s home base in Arizona; she works with the environment, uses natural materials, color and light, and adds a touch of bohemian ease.

⊳ KATIE STOREY

San Francisco | storeydesign.co WHY WE LOVE HER: Focusing on an individualized approach, Katie Storey aims to create spaces that serve as extensions of her clients’ personalities. From renovating classic Victorian town houses to designing modern homes, Storey adapts to her clients’ styles to make them feel at home. ON THE HORIZON: Storey is launching her first line of signature textiles and home goods to complement her crisp, refined design style. IN HER WORDS: “We aren’t designing for Spring 2017. We’re designing for your life, because we know spaces that function better feel better.”

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 116

ON THE HORIZON: Kehoe is excited about a large project built in the foothills of Ahwatukee, which will feature traditional elements and French country touches. Because it’s not a typical design for a home on a mountainside in Arizona, Kehoe is focusing on making sure the home seamlessly blends in with its environment. IN HER WORDS: “Our aesthetic is both elegant and very livable, and our approach is one of soft-handed guidance where we collaborate and listen to our clients.”

⊳ MICHELLE MORGAN HARRISON New Canaan, CT | morganharrisonhome.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Whether it’s a masculine library or a feminine parlor room, Michelle Morgan Harrison uses her background in fashion to infuse her designs with sophistication. ON THE HORIZON: Harrison is collaborating with James Schettino Architects on a large build project that will feature her ultramodern design.

STUDIO GILD ⊲

Chicago | studiogild.com

BRANT MCFARLAIN ⊲

Dallas | rbrantdesign.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: If the Dallas homes he designs are any indication, Brant McFarlain likes to think bold. His background as a finearts scholar informs his projects, which often rely on edgy statement pieces and luxurious materials to craft polished interiors. ON THE HORIZON: McFarlain is shifting his focus to an upcoming commercial venture, bringing a fresh, luxury approach to this new space. IN HIS WORDS: “When I design a space, I consider everything from architecture to furnishings to create a harmonious aesthetic. I also blend different styles and cultural influences to add interesting layers and depth to a space—so it doesn’t have just one look.”

ON THE HORIZON: They are working on a project with Michael G. Imber, Architects and a Flemish-inspired home with Miller Dahlstrand De Jean Architects. IN THEIR WORDS: “We feel that art can make or break a room, and would rather a client buy one great piece of art than several uninspired pieces.”

RADAR / DEBUT

REVVED & READY DESIGNER CAM CROCKFORD EXPERIMENTS WITH RAW MATERIALS TO CONSTRUCT USEFUL WORKS OF ART FOR HIS BUZZED-ABOUT FURNITURE DEBUT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER

portrait: alberto laccourreye.

“My style is very sculptural and free-flowing,” says Brooklyn-based artist and craftsman Cam Crockford of his recently launched modern Deco furniture line. The groundbreaking debut, an artful and refreshing take on traditional and timeless forms, has garnered praise from some of the industry’s most discerning patrons—and it’s easy to see why. The collection distinctly embodies Crockford’s innate passion for timeless design and his deep appreciation for organic lines and textures, which he explores without sacrificing form or function. “Everything I make is a one-ofa-kind custom piece of art,” says Crockford. “My work is really about taking a raw material and manipulating it into a usable sculpture.” But Crockford is no overnight sensation: Since moving to New York City in 2010, he has held many behind-the-scenes positions with a number of notable artisans, including Tom Fruin, whose public art installations have recently become fixtures along the Brooklyn skyline, and custom furniture maker Mark Jupiter. A true artist and fabricator at heart since childhood, Crockford’s enthusiasm for his craft, hands-on mentality and intense curiosity to learn new techniques using

unexpected materials have driven him to evolve and, consequently, stumble upon fortuitous circumstances. When his friend, who works for a high-end designer, had an unusual fixture that he needed assistance devising, Crockford tackled the project without hesitation. “Two days later, he and his boss came over and were pleasantly surprised with what I had produced,” he says. “Some call it luck, but to me, it’s what happens when skilled preparation collides with opportunity. It was the turning point of my career.” Inspired by his world travels and prolific artists, like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, Crockford’s creative process starts as an improvisational exercise of roughly assembling shapes and pairing colors with complementary textures. “I usually

LX_COM11_Radar_Crockford.indd 120

begin a project with scraps from my studio, and once I have a ‘palette’ for each piece, I start to manipulate the materials into their final form,” explains Crockford. Using recycled building materials from past projects, he fashioned his first piece, the RawDeco sofa (shown), with old pine beams salvaged from a Bronx warehouse and brass tubing. “The sofa was a great foundational piece that I poured my heart into, and from this followed the rest of my first collection,” he says. Crockford will launch his much-anticipated next line this spring with the same gusto and ethos: He plans to continue pushing boundaries by using new types of industrial materials, as well as stone and glass. “I like to set the bar high for myself,” he says, “and try to never get comfortable.”

TALKING SHOP WITH LAUREN DANUSER

LOCAL NOMAD

When did you open? We opened our doors in October 2016. Why handmade gifts? I wanted to put a different spin on the “shop local” movement and carry thoughtfully designed, handmade goods from makers around the world. The idea of finding local makers wherever I traveled became the motivating concept behind the shop. Describe the space. I wanted it to feel open and modern yet cozy and organic—as well as approachable. It was really fun collaborating with architects Mihir Bavishi and Oscar Lopez from Space Bureau. They understood my vision and took it to another level. Covetable décor find: Ceramics by Gopi Shah, out of the Bay Area. We carry her hand incense holders, sgraffito hanging planters and tiny wheel-thrown copitas for holding jewelry or storing salt. Next up: My plan has always been to host a quarterly pop-up shop where Phoenix makers showcase their goods. This is one way I want to connect with the amazing creative community here and support local artists. localnomadshop.com

THE INSIDER MEIR ZENATI

Tile is the material of choice for Meir Zenati, the creative mind behind Tabarka Studio. Founded in 2000, the establishment in the Scottsdale Design District is known for its handcrafted custom terra-cotta pieces, which feature shapes and patterns informed by exotic inspirations such as the Paris Metro, Italian villas, the ancient pavers of Israel, the architecture of Mexico, African motifs, Mediterranean villages and Japanese minimalism. The longtime producer is a favorite among luxury homeowners nationwide who seek eye-catching mosaics to add interest in areas of the home like bathroom flooring, kitchen backsplashes, fireplaces and entryways. And just as clay is molded into a beautiful creation, Tabarka Studio has since evolved beyond tile to also offer wood and parquet flooring, unique stones and antique elements. Below, Zenati shares his favorite local places for artisans in Arizona. tabarkastudio.com Best cultural venue for the family: Unlike other museums in the world, the Phoenix Art Museum conveys a sense of freedom that makes art feel more approachable. When our kids were little, we took them here often, especially during the warm months. They loved the firefly exhibit and other multimedia pieces. What’s intriguing you now? I am excited by the food scene in the Central Avenue Corridor. There are very interesting design concepts and a developing food culture I find intriguing—and that Tabarka will certainly become involved with in the future. Spaces like Pomelo and Ocotillo lend a decidedly urban awareness to a repurposed environment. Go-to showrooms for pieces with character: Modern Manor in Phoenix is a great source for midcentury modern furniture. Also, Scottsdale Marketplace is a fantastic place to look for vintage and unique pieces. On the horizon for Tabarka Studio: We are focusing on new tile collections ready to launch in the spring, which are in the prototype stages right now. We are very excited about these pieces, because once again Tabarka is coming up with new concepts never seen before in the hard-surface industry.

Vertical landscaping and architectural shading systems are among the sustainable elements that will be found at Optima Kierland, the luxury highrise condominium in Scottsdale serving as a pilot project for Phoenix’s International Green Construction Code. The building’s developer, 30-year-old Optima, is known for employing such design features as floor-to-ceiling glass walls, open floor plans and simple details to let quality building materials shine, and its latest project will be no different. By its completion in August 2018, Optima Kierland will consist of four residential towers, each housing one- to five-bedroom units. Owners will have their pick among 30 floor plans, and each home will boast private garden terraces as well as negative-edge railings, ensuring clear vistas of the McDowell Mountain Range and the cityscape. On the ground level, residents will access more than 5 acres of landscaped open space, including courtyards with sculpture gardens, water features, sun decks, a cold-plunge pool and a dog park. optima-kierland.com

DATE BOOK

JOEL CONTRERAS Where others may accept things as they are, it’s clear Joel Contreras isn’t the type to sit back and keep quiet. Contreras was working as a realtor in Phoenix when he found himself continuously disappointed by the houses he encountered in the local market, particularly charming antique properties that had undergone bland renovations. Motivated by this frustration, Contreras entered the home design industry and set out to impart his own flavor in Phoenix’s residential designs. “Nobody thought to combine modernism with historic homes,” he recalls. “We desperately needed some design presence in our core with respect to housing.” In 2012, Contreras and Greg Markov, a friend and fellow realtor, founded Contramark, a firm that specializes in modern construction of new residences as well as a contemporary take on historic home renovations. The duo design and facilitate projects using a highly architectural and often artistic bent, breathing new life into otherwise plain bungalows that have great potential. It’s all a testament to Contreras’ commitment to “changing Phoenix one project at a time.” Here, the design-savvy trendsetter shares his tips for exploring Phoenix. contramark.com 8 a.m. Wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort, and enjoy the luxurious ambience of the hotel. Grab a coffee and stretch out those muscles. 8:30 a.m. Go to Camelback Mountain. It’s a moderate hike, and the views up top are incredible. You’ll need this workout to equalize the calories you’ll consume the rest of the day. 10 a.m. Uber to La Grande Orange Grocery in Arcadia for brunch. LGO was a game changer when it opened, and it remains a staple in Phoenix. I always order the Commuter Sandwich with bacon: scrambled eggs, tomato and mayo on an English muffin. 11:30 a.m. Walk to Three Fountains and The Boardwalk condominiums, and tour the properties. Built by Al Beadle in the 1960s, they’re excellent examples of local midcentury architecture, featuring elements like glass walls and central courtyards. 12:30 p.m. Head back to the Sanctuary to get some sun at the pool. 1:30 p.m. Grab another Uber to Mill Avenue in Tempe, and stop at the Cornish Pasty Co for some pasties—they’re delicious. Mill Ave has

all the charm you’d expect of a hip college town’s main street. Stay a while for drinks, shopping and people watching. 3 p.m. Take the Light Rail from Tempe through downtown Phoenix to Midtown Phoenix, and get a good feel for the city. First, stop at the galleries at the MonOrchid. The interior, which has an exposed truss system, looks like Noah’s ark—tipped over. Then admire the Will Bruder-designed Burton Barr Central Library on North Central Avenue, which has a striking glass façade. 4:30 p.m. Time for some shopping. Stop into Hub Clothing and Frances for apparel and For the People for local artisan-designed décor and furniture. 6 p.m. Go to The Parlor in the Biltmore district for dinner. This restaurant and cocktail spot has great pizza, Italian food and high design. You’ll dig the experience. 8 p.m. End the night with a glass of wine at Postino, a cool eatery and wine bar. It’s a small chain with six locations; go to the one in Arcadia, which is housed in a former 1950s post office updated with a midcentury modern style.

RIVIERA HOLIDAY

THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY

While this iconic psychological thriller by Anthony Minghella is rife with suspense and drama, The Talented Mr. Ripley’s Amalfi Coast setting elicits a calming sense of serenity, one that can be replicated year-round with an earthy, neutral palette and pops of tranquil cerulean that evoke a relaxed level of chic.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Magically traveling back in time to a period that shaped the first international architectural age of Art Deco, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris marries the present day with the vibrancy of the Jazz Age. Influenced by a combination of modernism and bold geometric forms, these interior finds prove that this sophisticated style will forever remain a tour de force.

Model BEHAVIOR LUXURIOUS AND LEGGY, THESE SEXY SEATS STRUT THEIR STUFF TO FAVORABLE REVIEWS FROM AN ARTFUL CROP OF CREATIVE CONTEMPORARIES. WRITTEN AND STYLED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC PIASECKI

ROMY NORTHOVER ARTIST DESIGNBYNO.COM

Artist to artist: Helena Sultan’s work sends a message to connect to the present. As with her company’s name, Konekt, the pieces themselves, titled Pause, are a beautiful and simple reminder to do just that. On balance: There is a conversation between these materials—the shiny and the matte, the warm and the cold. This complementary opposition displays a true understanding of balance. Authenticity is what separates these pieces: It’s clear Helena’s designs come from the heart and soul, and that really reads on a subliminal level. Color play: Cobalt, a precious pigment, is historically used in iconography, while rusty red imbues more of a wabi-sabi philosophy. I’m drawn to the tension this unexpected pairing of the chairs and background explores. Last call: The Pause pieces are bold, contoured, tactile and considered.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 158

11/21/16 11:32 AM


CASTING CALL THE PIECE: Pause Lounge Chair and Pause Chaise Lounge THE DESIGNER: Helena Sultan FIND IT: konektfurniture.com THE INSPIRATION: The Pause lounge chair and its sister chaise were born from a desire to invite users living in a world of digital overload to take a moment and slow down. Through the Pennsylvania-based designer’s use of curvaceous fiberglass shells and alluring materials—copper, mohair, brass and velvet—the results are that of deep comfort, timelessness and a penchant to make one pause.

FOREVER YOUNG THE PIECE: Contour Armchair THE DESIGNER: Cliff Young, Ltd. FIND IT: cliffyoungltd.com THE INSPIRATION: With a comely and clean design in mind, Cliff Young, Ltd.’s Contour armchair came to fruition, and with it, the generational and highly respected brand’s intention to brighten and lighten any space this sculptural piece will ever inhabit. With its inviting, lightweight form and stunning hide and metal options, this is indeed a mission accomplished.

SALLY KING BENEDICT

ARTIST SALLYBENEDICT.COM

Artist to artist: Cliff Young, Ltd., has been on the vanguard of modern and relevant designs for nearly 50 years—how impressive is that! I’m immediately drawn… To the simple lines, mix of materials and functionality of the Contour chair. It’s also attractive in that it has a modern Italian look that pops against this cobalt background. There is nothing finer… Than a supple, smooth leather to lie upon and break in to your own personal, perfect fit. The hide paired with the lustrous finish of the rose gold is a match made in five-star heaven. On keeping it real: Because the world is so inundated with the visual overload of others’ work and inspiration these days, true authenticity and original design seem harder and harder to come by. I find it critical for true artisans and designers to continue on with our paths and ideas. Cliff Young, Ltd., has always been a fearless leader in doing just that. Last call: The Contour chair feels inviting, supple, streamlined and elegant.

KELLEY JOHNSON ARTIST JOHNSON-KELLEY.COM

Artist to artist: Farrah Sit’s design aesthetic is so pleasingly minimal and functional and permeates everything she does—the Noir chair is no exception. Opposites attract: The strong and enduring quality of steel fused with the durable warmth of cotton is such a fresh marriage, visually and time withstanding. Anytime you take a risk… You learn something about yourself and the work that you do. It’s the only way to discover your truth and take a stance on the message you want to convey. Color play: The cobalt and rust hues of the background, along with the severe lighting, heighten the planar and angular quality of the composition and seem to speak the same language as the Noir chair. This study in contrasts, between the light and the dark, the hard and the soft, could actually be used to describe both the environment and Farrah’s design. Last call: The Noir chair reads as architectural, minimal, refined, purposeful and timeless.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 161

FREE AGENT THE PIECE: Noir Lounge Chair THE DESIGNER: Farrah Sit FIND IT: farrahsit.com THE INSPIRATION: Architectural planes, airy silhouettes and sleek edges define the Brooklynite’s Noir series.

LEATHER AND LACE THE PIECE: Artemis Armchairs THE DESIGNER: Kelly Lamb FIND IT: kellylamb.net THE INSPIRATION: Multidisciplinary designer (and cool Californian) Kelly Lamb took all the right cues from Artemis— the Ancient Greek deity, goddess of the hunt and mistress of the wilderness and the moon—when concepting this namesake chair. Leather upholstery and lacing reference the aesthetic of mythic times, while the metal finishes are fit for no less than a god or goddess, circa-BCE times or present-day.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 162

WAYNE PATE ARTIST WAYNEPATE.COM

Artist to artist: I’m deeply impressed with Kelly Lamb’s body of work and the balance in her execution of color and materials. Considering its composition and angles, I find this piece disarming. On authenticity: As well-known American graphic designer Paul Rand once said, “Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.” That quote has had a lasting effect on me and informs how I approach my own work and look at others. Clear-cut appeal: The Artemis feels like a classic, modern chair, but one that you were not aware of until now. I can never get enough of… Black metal and bronze. Historically, this assembly of materials has been behind the making of so many iconic pieces from the 20th century. A real beacon of luxury… Is the laced-leather detail on the back of the chair—so clever and unexpected. Last call: The Artemis chair feels clever, understated, graceful, sophisticated and effortless.

THE CLIMB THE PIECE: Sempione Stool THE DESIGNER: Natasha Baradaran FIND IT: natashabaradaran.com THE INSPIRATION: As homage to her grandfather and childhood afternoons spent lazing and feeding the pigeons in Milan’s stately Parco Sempione, Natasha Baradaran reimagined a sculptural stool that’s equal parts nostalgia and high style. Part of the L.A.-based designer’s new Curva collection, the stool and its counterparts are packed with Milanese style and are meant to celebrate dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing).

MIMI JUNG

ARTIST MIMIJUNG.COM

Artist to artist: Natasha Baradaran has a markedly effortless knack for creating harmony in everything she touches, from her interiors to her furniture. What’s most striking… About the Sempione stool is the intention and process that went into the realization of this piece. From the sweet inspiration to her ingenious use of plush and more severe materials, the whole design reads as a piece of art. On authenticity: Working in the creative world is a privilege—with it comes a responsibility to honor the past, respect the present and inspire the future. The ultimate luxury… In my opinion is being surrounded by artful works in your own home; I would love for this stool to live adjacent to the sofa in my living room. Last call: The Sempione stool is textural, plush, sculptural, heavy and light.

FULL OF GRACE THE PIECE: Stool 001 - Ebonized THE DESIGNER: Vincent Pocsik FIND IT: vincentpocsik.com THE INSPIRATION: Stature, anatomy and cattle—a curious but oh-so-successful grouping of inspirations that led to the realization of Vincent Pocsik’s Stool 001. Stirred by the bodily structure of animals, specifically that of the bull, Pocsik’s design was crafted with the same elegance, strength and balance as that of the stoic and larger-than-life creature.

JOHN HOGAN

GLASS ARTIST, DESIGNER & CONSULTANT JOHNHOGANDESIGNS.COM

Artist to artist: Vincent Pocsik’s designs hold a soft masculinity and elevated feel that derives from simple, fluid lines and hearty materials. The attention paid to the negative space is really important to the sophistication of these stools. On timelessness: Vincent’s use of traditional materials is tried-and-true and makes the most sense for a stool. So many designs are beautiful but solely so; longevity and aesthetics should never be exclusive of one another. Luxury nowadays... Seems to be going in two different directions: Some concepts are more complex and involved, while others rely on the simplicity and quality of materials to say something more understated. Stool 001’s strongest luxury is its restraint, and I appreciate that. There is something about this form… That suggests anatomical movement to me. I feel like maybe the stools want to go for a walk. Last call: This piece reads as masculine, soft, strong, chic and stable.

Villalobos & Desio | New York, NY “The new collections at High Point Market get better and better each season. We love seeing unique, tailored pieces that are ideal for city living. The range of furniture collections always surprises us. The proportions are varied, so it’s easy to source pieces for any project, whether an apartment in the city or a house in Florida. The collaborations between designers and showrooms are always inspiring. After all, it’s more than just trends, it’s about offering individual visions.” “When visiting High Point Market in the future, use social media to navigate ‘must-see’ products that editors and others are posting. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and take in all the events and parties to catch up with your peers and revel in what’s new in design.”

AVO | Brooklyn, NY “It’s hard for me to pinpoint a particular product from High Point Market that served as an inspiration, but I loved the use of color in everything—a lot of warm neutrals mixed with pops of bright hues. I find that there’s always a product ‘find’ for everyone! I particularly like to visit Historic Market Square and the cutting-edge innovations that evolve from other small businesses that exhibit there. I am very inspired by manufacturing techniques and the story behind makers. A lot of domestic manufacturers have had to fight to stay afloat and that perseverance comes out in the innovation of the product.”

Morgan Harrison Home | New Canaan, CT “I am always looking for inspiration in fabrics, interesting color combinations and mixes of materials. But color is what drives me. This past market I saw some great combinations that were consistently found throughout all of the showrooms. Blue was everywhere… in different shades and combinations, but steel blue was the color of the market. Pinks and blushes continued to be popular, and black and cream combos were everywhere in organic textures. Teal and turquoise, combined with black and pops of coral was a new look. Brown was back, but it was a brown with gray undertones. I also saw a lot of brass, and black metal legs and frames on sofas and chairs.”

The centerpiece of this Houston kitchen is the breathtaking island from Chateau Domingue; it was made from a 17th-century sacristy cabinet from Jaca, Spain. The large steel window from Atelier Domingue provides a more contemporary counterpoint to the exterior kitchen wall, which incorporates stones reclaimed from a house in Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Provence region. Pantry doors designed by architectural consultant and designer Sarah West flank the window.

CHARACTER BUILDING HIGHLY CURATED MATERIALS AND LUXURIOUS CUSTOM DETAILS BRING TIMELESS APPEAL TO THE HARDEST-WORKING ROOMS IN THE HOUSE. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

The warmth of wood, the cool touch of marble, the gleam of brass or nickel: There’s a reason why materials carry so much weight in the kitchen and bath. Capturing both the senses and the imagination, they offer a magical combination of tactile sensation and arresting beauty that goes far beyond function. Consider how an inspired mix of decorative finishes can elevate a room beyond the ordinary, or how a thoughtful installation of architectural elements can pay homage to a home’s history or bring context to a space where none existed, such as in new construction. Here, we take a look at the ways designers are using all manner of materials to add a layer of personality and authenticity to your home’s busiest hubs.

SALVAGED BEAUTY SARAH WEST

PHOTO: WADE BLISSARD.

Houston-based architectural consultant and designer Sarah West combines European treasures with clean minimalism for a fresh take on the country French look. Share your inspiration. My aim was to strike a timeless balance: The architectural antiques and salvaged beams provide a stark contrast with the clean lines of the vent hood and the steel divided-light window. Originally, the window was supposed to have an arch, but making it rectangular felt much more modern.

Let’s talk about that island. I wanted to integrate a freestanding furniture-like island in the center of the kitchen, reminiscent of something you’d have seen in France several centuries ago. It was a way to introduce history and have a beautiful piece anchoring the space. The goal was to have that immediate “wow” factor when you enter.

Why work with salvaged materials? People tend to like pieces that tell a story, but especially with new construction, it’s hard to add a sense of history to a space. Bringing in antiques lends patina and character. You can have a drawer handle and see where it’s worn from centuries of use. That kind of context is always appealing. LUXESOURCE.COM / 195

SURFACE APPEAL Less about form than function, vanities aren’t usually the first place one looks to make a splash style-wise in the bath. That may change with Chameleon Concepts’ Parsons vanity, though, which features a customizable façade with a wide range of finishes you can use to coordinate with the surroundings. The door front cleverly frames inserts of various materials such as tile, mirror, marble or leather, allowing designers and homeowners to put their personal mark on an otherwise underutilized area. chameleonconcepts.com

There are few places in the house where abundant lighting is more essential than the vanity mirror. With a three-bulb LED option, the Julien sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting ensures that you’ve got just enough coverage to tackle all your grooming needs, all while making a glamorous statement in opulent aged brass. Groovy satellite shades combine midcentury good looks with a dash of space-age cool, so your bath will be as chic as it is well-lit. hudsonvalleylighting.com

IN THE

BLACK

For the past decade, we’ve seen freestanding tubs soar in popularity, but one thing has been a constant: Whether they were vintage-inspired or contemporary and sculptural, soakers were overwhelmingly white. Now, the matte-black trend, so in vogue for kitchen appliances and personal tech, has made it to the bath in the form of the Warndon tub from Victoria + Albert. Crafted from a solid casting of volcanic limestone and resin, it’s harder and more durable than acrylic, and it comes in seven finishes. ferguson.com

These days, high-impact finishes in the bath go beyond mere tile and stone. Architectural flourishes, brass hardware and striking surface treatments combine to create unique spaces filled with character and an element of surprise. Take this Minneapolis powder room, where black and white is anything but basic thanks to a conversation piece of a vanity featuring a whimsically curvy leg. “The vanity is spectacular, but it doesn’t dominate the room because we kept the space dark and cave-like for maximum drama,” says builder Chris Van Klei of Detail Homes. On the following page, design talents from across the country share some of their favorite ways to use architectural elements, such as paneling and steel-frame doors, to impressive effect in the bath. detailhomes.com

CENTER STAGE The heart of the home is not exempt from changing tastes: Kitchen design reflects how people live, and that’s constantly evolving. The ongoing popularity of the open plan has transformed this hardworking room into a performance space in itself. It’s fitting, then, that this lovely kitchen by Peek Architecture + Design is situated in an apartment that occupies what was once part of an old theater. It’s a fine example of how color, customization and materials are coming together to create highly detailed, bespoke spaces with big drama. On the following pages, take a look at the elegant upgrades we can’t wait to bring to our own kitchens this year.

bench MARK

When it comes to sex appeal, a cozy corner banquette certainly trumps a breakfast bar. An upholstered nook evokes the glamour of dining out without actually having to leave one’s home, but, more importantly, it encourages one to slow down and sit—even for meals on-the-go. Inspired by her clients’ love of Belgian design, Minneapolisbased designer Kate Roos opted for a freestanding piece in this family kitchen. “The hand-tufted navy blue bench rests on quarter-sawn white-oak legs to keep it feeling light,” she says. Gray cabinetry, marble countertops and brass accents complete the space’s warm European aesthetic. kateroosdesign.com

RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES Even novice home cooks want to know: What features do pros and serious foodies look for in a stove? “I’m all in favor of models with a range of heat—big BTU burners and also ones that simmer well,” says expert Mark Bittman, author of the How to Cook Everything series. One method of cooking that’s been heating up over the last couple of years is induction. The cooktop’s two biggest selling points are high heat and a low constant simmer. To satisfy demand, Italian company ILVE is introducing a brand-new 36-inch and a 40-inch induction range this year, like the one shown here. ilveappliances.com

OPEN f lame

For the kitchen of this Brooklyn town house, New York architect Elizabeth Roberts knocked out walls on the parlor level of the home to create an open floor plan. “The clients are avid cooks and wanted a place where they could socialize with guests while preparing food,” she says. Clear sight lines also ensure that all eyes are on one of the space’s most unique features: a year-round wood-burning grill with an adjustable rack. Navy blue tiles from Heath Ceramics surround the grill, making it as sleek as it is practical. elizabethroberts.com

4 BALL & CHAIN

Pendant lights in the kitchen continue to evolve from purely functional to all-out fashion statements. For evidence of this trend, look no further than the Dolma chandelier from designer Windsor Smith for Arteriors. Combining a Byzantine influence with modern geometry, the light features polished-brass hexagons that form a lacy globe suspended from a delicate chain. Whether hung in multiples over an island or as a singular fixture over the sink, the open basket-weave design is sure to throw artful shadows throughout your home. arteriorshome.com

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

There’s a reason why black is the first choice for cocktail attire. It’s perennially chic, goes with virtually everything and easily hides spills. Now apply those attributes to the kitchen, and you can see why a noir cookspace, like this one from San Francisco designer Catherine Kwong, holds so much appeal. “I wanted to create an area that was moody and glamorous, but also able to withstand a lot of use,” she says. Hardworking materials like jet-painted cabinets and brickwork subway tile set the scene, while unexpected elements like flathead screw detailing on drawer fronts and a vintage bronze mariner’s sconce add shine and contrast. catherinekwong.com

TOTAL transparency Just as the right accessories elevate an ensemble, beautifully crafted knobs and pulls add polish and interest to your cabinetry. For these Art Deco-inspired pieces, designer Jessica Ahnert Davis of boutique hardware company Nest Studio proves she isn’t afraid to mix materials, combining chrome or brass joinery with acrylic. The knobs’ notched design recalls the retro lines of old-fashioned radios and microphones while simultaneously maintaining an edgy, contemporary vibe. nest-studio-home.com

With backsplashes seemingly growing bolder and more luxurious by the minute, the hunt is on for tile that delivers on both fronts. Offering a modern take on the Roaring ’20s’ love for gilt and glam, the Gatsby mosaic from TileBar combines Nero Marquina and white Thassos marble in a lively geometric pattern with crisp, brass linear accents: No wonder it’s named for the character who embodies the style and decadence of the era. tilebar.com

HOT seat

Kitchen stools tend to skew more utilitarian than glamorous. Not so with the Geisha barstool from Koket. With textured velvet upholstery that calls to mind on-trend shibori prints, it offers a perch that is both plush and posh, and its gracefully curved arms and sleek, polished-brass legs bring a new level of luxury to island dining. bykoket.com

How does one soften the interior of a modern concrete house? Why you throw it a curve, of course! That’s what Australian architecture firm Auhaus did in the form of a sculptural, statement-making range hood. Rendered in brass, the dualcylinder design provides a striking contrast to the room’s clean lines. Using wood paneling on the ceiling and cabinetry brings warmth to the palette, and heavily veined marble provides plenty of eye-catching pattern. auhaus-arch.com

FUTURE FORECAST THREE TOP DESIGNERS TALK ABOUT CURRENT KITCHEN TRENDS AND SHARE A FEW PREDICTIONS FOR THE YEAR.

KAREN WILLIAMS

ST. CHARLES OF NEW YORK What’s the biggest trend you’re seeing? We’re slowly moving away from total open-plan kitchens by finding ways to delineate spaces with architectural separations or a change of floor pattern. We’re also seeing more walk-in pantries for storage. Any must-have upgrades? Luxury finishes, beautiful chandeliers and fixtures, ranges in high-end materials, even luxury hardware— you see, touch and use these things every day. Kitchens see a lot of use, so people have come to view these touches as a worthy investment. Up next? I think there will be more personalization and an influx of interesting materials in the kitchen, such as new finishes and exotic veneers. Be on the lookout for more mixing of metals and darker palettes, resulting in new levels of sophistication. stcharlesofnewyork.com

_LX_COM11_TheReport.indd 192

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK PEACOCK HOME

What is on your clients’ wish lists? High-quality hardware in both classic and transitional styles is always important to our clientele. It is what brings the cabinetry to life and provides the mark of great design. Is the era of the white kitchen over? It’s evolved. Spaces still use white, but we are consistently seeing large sections of the cabinetry painted with a strong color to break up the neutral look. More than ever, we are noticing islands or stand-alone pieces painted in dark gray, and many of our clients are choosing to use black high-gloss oil finishes on their cabinetry. I see a shift toward darker rooms with a more masculine mood. Up next? More glass elements and dark metals like bronze and brass, creating a very eclectic collection of materials in one setting. peacockhome.com

JESSICA HELGERSON

JESSICA HELGERSON INTERIOR DESIGN Share the biggest trend you’re seeing. We try to avoid trends in our kitchens and instead have them architecturally reflect the houses they inhabit. I would rather be trendy with lighting and furniture, which is easier to replace. The worst-case scenario is to do the perfect kitchen for this year and then have it be… 2018! What’s your biggest challenge? People live in their kitchens in a way they didn’t in the past. We work on a lot of historic remodels, and it is always a question of how much we can open up the kitchen, incorporate seating areas, etc., without compromising the integrity of the house. Open shelves or closed cabinets? Both! Displaying a few objects nicely on an open shelf is great, but we usually try to place the refrigerator into a wall of cabinetry that conceals what you don’t want to see. jhinteriordesign.com

window

DRESSING Many kitchens feature a window over the sink, but few do it with as much panache as this Alys Beach, Florida, home. For this project, Nashville-based designer Chelsea Robinson drew on the Moorish influence present in the rest of the house. A swooping pointed arch highlights the window, forming a focal point for the kitchen as well as a recessed bay for the sink area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The juxtaposition of white plaster walls with dark cabinetry, warm brass finishes, Moroccan arches and a clay-tile backsplash create the perfect blend of modern elements and old-world patina,â&#x20AC;? she says. chelsearobinsoninteriors.com

BERGHOFF DESIGN GROUP

For 19 years, Jeff Berghoff has developed classic designs, transforming residential properties into stunning garden showpieces. His firm, Berghoff Design Group, now boasts more than 200 employees, each of whom collaborate with architects and contractors to deliver designs to last the ages. “I find real joy in working on sites that are pure and timeless,” Berghoff says. “It is not about a particular style, but working on items that endure and make a lasting impression.” Led to the profession by a passion for design and a love for studying old gardens rich with history, Berghoff enjoys working with his team to achieve the needs and desires of each client. “Everything we do is relationships driven,” he says. “We have been fortunate to be a part of so many projects throughout the West, particularly Phoenix and Southern California. The luxury market is increasing, and we are seeing a greater variety of projects than ever before.” Berghoff views each property as a new possibility and opportunity through which to evolve the space into a dynamic and custom garden that flows harmoniously throughout the exterior of the home. “Drawing inspiration from the full range of fine arts and culture, we are able to deliver a discernible and individual look,” he says. “We aim to exceed expectations in all aspects, so our designs embody the precise type of luxury and lifestyle for which our clients strive.”

Jeff Berghoff, President 7000 East McDowell Road,Suite 100 Scottsdale, Arizona 480.481.3433 contact@berghoffdesign.com berghoffdesign.com

Being a part of the ever-increasing focus on the earth’s natural beauty is both humbling and exhilarating.

Ask the Expert What is your creative process? What is your favorite part of it? After listening to the client’s desires, we educate them about what is realistic, refining their goals and making them a reality. Taking these notes, we expand them into a concept, pulling from the architecture and surrounding natural influences. What is inspiring you now? Traveling has allowed me to broaden my horizons, familiarizing myself with a host of vernaculars so I am better able to seamlessly enhance my clients’ exterior environments. How do you define luxury? To me, luxury in a garden is when formal beauty can feel effortless and casual.

CANDELARIA DESIGN ASSOCIATES

Encourage alfresco living, limit wasted space and improve the lives of the inhabitants. These are a few of the principles by which Mark Candelaria, principal of eponymous firm Candelaria Design Associates, creates residential masterpieces. The architect has perfected an artistic process that starts with dedication to the project and ends with a home that enhances the lifestyle of the client. With 35 years of experience designing commercial boutiques, hospitality venues and custom homes, Candelaria has built a team of professionals that understands his approach and the essence of his philosophy, which centers on client service. “We have many clients who are CEOs and work long hours, so we love to make sure they’re relaxed and excited to go into design meetings,” Candelaria says. “Many meetings end with wine and casual conversation.” Through an understanding of the client’s purpose for their home and a strong work ethic, Candelaria and his team achieve the balance of form and function best suited to each residence. Having completed beautiful homes across the country, the firm has mastered every aesthetic and the art of building to massive scales, as its portfolio can attest. Candelaria strives to create an open and inspiring environment for the clients, architects, designers, builders and craftsmen involved. Passion achieves excellence, so it’s no wonder Candelaria and his team have found success.

Mark Candelaria, AIA, Principal 6900 East Camelback Road, Suite 400 Scottsdale, Arizona 602.604.2001 info@candelariadesign.com candelariadesign.com

Ask the Expert What is inspiring you now? Our love for architecture and culture has culminated in our annual Candelaria Design Tour Italy, where we celebrate architecture, cooking, wine and good living. It’s the Candelaria Design lifestyle!

What are you working on next? We are currently designing homes from La Jolla, California, to Kansas City, Missouri, to Montauk, New York, along with many homes throughout Arizona. We are also working on the second season of our TV show Sketch, a book and more tours to Italy and Spain. How do you define luxury? Through impeccable design and architecture we improve the quality of living that is the epitome of luxury.

DREWETT WORKS

A lifelong student of detail, art and construction, architect CP Drewett spent his childhood alongside his father, building furniture and remodeling homes … a natural progression for cultivating a love of architecture. “I am blessed beyond words to have a career driven by my passion,” says Drewett, the president and founding architect of Drewett Works. A boutique architectural firm with a luxury focus, it has completed high-end residential and commercial projects, pushing creative boundaries to create designs that stand the test of time. A modernist at heart, Drewett says he makes each style his own. “Call it fusion; I like to bend the rules of tradition and reign in modernism. All the while, it’s about client satisfaction,” he says. With a lengthy list of noteworthy clients, ranging from C-level executives and professional athletes, to the founder of HGTV, it may come as a surprise to know that a blank piece of paper provides Drewett’s initial inspiration. “It doesn’t matter how many times I come to that place; it feels regenerative,” he says. “I draw and draw and draw ... until I fall in love.” While a blank canvas sparks the creative process, it’s the shared vision with the client that is Drewett’s “mental gasoline,” as he puts it. “It’s a marriage, so I make it my business to learn how people live through close listening, intentional questioning and discernment.” Next up? A family legacy project that will be in excess of 50,000 square feet.

TOP: PHOTOGRAPH BY WERNER SEGARRA | BOTTOM: PHOTOGRAPH BY GREY CRAWFORD

Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Yes—which is counterintuitive to my client-based approach. But I’m realizing my care for detail, capacity to sculpt materials, and my focus on elegance transcends “style.” What would be your dream creative project? A church, and a prison. I think both create an opportunity to explore architecture as it relates to living in the highest and lowest points of humanity. What do you like most about your job? I love that I get to be a dream weaver; to share in the creative process of crafting a place to call home—a place for refuge and a place for retreat.

01. Travertine flooring complements light taupe stucco walls in this Estancia home, where the rugged desert forms the backdrop. 02. Designed to embrace the owner’s sculpture, paintings and antiquities, this modern home located in north Scottsdale’s Estancia doubles as a gallery for the spectacular collection.

KEVIN B. HOWARD ARCHITECTS

With nature and human comfort as key influences in his work, it’s no surprise architect Kevin Howard references Frank Lloyd Wright’s desert architecture and the clean formalist detailing of Mies van der Rohe when taking on a new project. Born, raised and educated in Arizona, Howard spent his childhood exploring the desert near Taliesin, creating a lifelong respect for the desert and the art of dwelling in it. “Our firm’s philosophy is rooted in the ideals of sustainability, authenticity of materials and carefully integrated construction,” Howard says. “We’re helping redefine the relationship between the built form and nature.” Working primarily in gated communities, Howard’s namesake firm, Kevin B. Howard Architects has completed projects throughout Southern Arizona, recently branching out beyond Tucson. With the desert as his design canvas, he begins every project with a detailed site analysis, then an on-site walk with clients to evaluate the flora, fauna, topography and views available. “My best time is spent before a drafting board, designing and meditating on the site and its challenges,” he says. Working in desert modern, organic and Zen styles for their “structural and meditative aspects of living within nature,” as he puts it, Howard seeks to inspire meaningful interactions that create a higher appreciation for the Sonoran Desert. With 20 years of creating award-winning homes behind him, he looks to the future with anticipation.

Kevin B. Howard, Principal 8339 North Oracle Road, Suite 110 Oro Valley, Arizona 520.322.6800 webinfo@kbharchitect.com kbharchitect.com

Ask the Expert How would you describe your clientele? Our clients are drawn to the Sonoran Desert because of the warm weather and uniqueness of the desert environment. Most of our clients like to take advantage of the desert light, the expansive views and the ability to spend time outdoors. Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Good design takes in the clients’ needs, pushes boundaries and showcases the beauty of the natural environment. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Yes, we distinguish ourselves with climateconscious design that embraces open floor plans, blurred lines between the interior and exterior, and a keen attention to detail.

01. A platonic plane floats above the glass foyer with a view of the stairway just inside. The abstraction of simple forms contrasts with the organic sculptural desert.

R.J. BACON CONSULTING & DESIGN

Bob Bacon began designing after arriving in Phoenix in the late 1950s. Since then, he founded his firm, R.J. Bacon Consulting & Design, and created notable commercial, institutional and hospitality properties in addition to stunning residences. Rather than approaching architecture as an art form, Bacon strives to solve functional problems and elevate the resulting solutions to the level of art. “I consider ‘style’ to be the outcome of more fundamentally important and principled objectives,” he says. “I favor solutions derived authentically from their visual, cultural and environmental contexts.” Splitting his time between Orford, New Hampshire, and Paradise Valley, Arizona—home to his personal studio—Bacon is currently working on an array of projects, as well as writing a book about the daily challenges and practical realities of his profession. Asked to identify the part of his job he enjoys most, Bacon points to the creative freedom it affords him. “Because the spectra of the built environment are as broad as we wish, I am able to continuously challenge myself and expand the breadth and depth of my work,” he says.

Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Styling is what grabs us emotionally, while design determines how we feel about the results after living with it for a time. Styling encompasses colors, textures, materials, forms and other aesthetic aspects of the problem. Design includes aesthetics, but also deals with economics, efficiency, constructability and comfort. How do you define luxury? Luxury is relative and is simply the absence of want.

ROBINETTE ARCHITECTS

Founded out of a desire to design custom homes in southwest Arizona, Robinette Architects has expanded to include services pertaining to every facet of architecture, site selection and residential, landscape, outdoor and interior design. Founder and principal Ron Robinette’s lifelong fascination with architecture began at a young age, only increasing as he gained a greater understanding of the impact a structure can have on the land and its inhabitants. “The more I understand how spaces make people feel, the more I appreciate the impact of great design,” he says. Often hinging on collaboration between the architect, builder and designer, remodels and new builds alike require a working partnership between multiple firms, a concept Robinette and his team have mastered. While continuously looking to trends to identify influences and observe the reinterpretation of classic principles, Robinette points to the customization of each project as his primary source of direction. “I enjoy all styles of design, as long as they are responsive to our clients’ goals, the character of the building site and the climate,” he says. “The quality of design in our projects is recognizable, but we purposely do not work in one single style. Each home has its own challenges and specifications, so each allows us to be creative in one way or another.”

What is your creative process? After understanding the clients, it is important to understand the property. Sometimes this means daydreaming on site to observe the impacts of sunlight, the change of the seasons and the natural vegetation. What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? I think of architecture as a lifelong profession that is also my hobby. Success, for me, would be to continue to do well in this pursuit for the rest of my life. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? They should think about what they want, like and need in their home.

SEAVER FRANKS ARCHITECTS

Founded in 1975, Seaver Franks Architects works with a wide range of project types, from resort hotels and restaurants to office and retail centers to private luxury residences. Principal Michael Franks became interested in the practice of architecture early on, through the landscape and residential design office of his father. Central to Franks’ practice is the idea that an architect is both a visionary and a problem solver. “Early in the design process, we identify unique challenges that will inform our design,” he says. “These constraints present opportunities that will strengthen an overall design concept. The architecture does not succeed in spite of the challenges; it succeeds because of them.” Seaver Franks’ projects are distinguished by a confidence in spatial composition that honors natural views and the daily lives of the end user. The clarity of the massing, supported by the careful detailing of natural materials, invokes a timeless and vernacular architectural language. Franks and his team have found great design freedom in their commitment to the region and the client. It is the reflection of a practice shaped by a lifetime of study. Franks believes that great regional design functions independently of style. “It is founded in a deep respect for the complex systems that sustain life in our region and a sincere admiration for the people who have chosen to make their homes here,” he says.

What would be your dream creative project? I would love to design an opera house; I think it’s the pinnacle design challenge, bringing all of the arts together—music, visual, song, etc. These structures become iconic for their communities as well.

PHX ARCHITECTURE

On average, very few architectural firms make it past five years, so building an architectural practice with proven success for 13 years is something award-winning architect Erik Peterson doesn’t take lightly. “This is the greatest success of my career to date,” he says. As the president of PHX Architecture, Peterson, along with principals Scott Carson and Ron Skoog, has formed a strong team of diversely talented professionals brought together by a common passion for great design. Influenced by regionalism, human scale and delight, Peterson and his team work collaboratively on every project to achieve the best results. “I love the look in clients’ eyes when we present the concept and then they see it realized in form,” he says. PHX’s motto, “Living Architecture,” defines its approach, literally and figuratively—from the firm’s love of all things organic and the relationship between the built form and the human body, to the fact that the firm lives and breathes this profession. When it comes to style, Peterson leans toward contemporary for its imaginative side, and loves engaging in new technology, especially creating new materials made to look like their natural counterpart. Working mostly in high-end golf communities, PHX defines success not by project size or dollar amount, but rather, “success is defined by a happy client, period,” Peterson says. “That means we’ve exceeded their expectations on schedule, costs and service.”

KIM SCODRO INTERIORS An interior design studio based in Chicago and Phoenix, Kim Scodro Interiors has built a bicoastal client base through which it completes projects in a variety of aesthetic vernaculars and locations. According to founder and namesake Kim Scodro, this success is due in large part to a collaborative philosophy. “We work together as a team on every project and conceptualize closely with each client to design spaces that are timeless and refined, yet tastefully current,” she says. “We feel honored to be invited into the process of creating such personal and memorable parts of their lives.” Catering to the whole family, Scodro and her team aim to make everyone’s individual voice heard. Asked to discuss her influences, Scodro points first to her clients, then to industry and global culture. “Our inspiration comes from our clients’ unique personalities, styles and interests,” she says. “We also take frequent trips to important trade shows in Paris and High Point. Travel remains one of our greatest sources of knowledge.” As of late, Scodro and her team have been driven by their own work, in the form of a furniture line they have designed for 42nd Street Design. In creating the collection, the team assessed its former projects for pieces that were missing or difficult to find. Of the qualities inherent to the successful design of interiors and furnishings alike, Scodro begins by pointing to a happy client and ends by saying, “Good design is about scale and comfort. Without either of those, a room will never work.”

Color ALL ABOUT:

Color has the extraordinary ability to elicit a particular mood and create a certain ambience, which makes it a powerful tool in home design. But assembling the perfect palette today is way more fun than it has been in previous years when whites and beiges reigned supreme: Lately, homeowners have been more eager than ever to get playful with unexpected hues. Artistic wallpapers, printwearing chairs, eye-catching window treatments, splashy rugs and patterned pillows are all making appearances, whether sparingly or abundantly. Combinations like white with black or navy will forever remain classics, as well as reliable backgrounds for pops of color, but know the rainbow is yours to pursue ever boldly. We turned to some of Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading design pros for advice on how to approach color with confidence.

HOLLY OGDEN AND PATTY BURDICK Interior Designers

Did the artwork in this project influence the colors you chose? PB: The artwork was selected at the end of the design process, after the color palette and fabrics were already firmly established. We wanted to create the feel that the collection was acquired over time, so the art pieces dabble between going against the grain of the color scheme and marrying the two. Are clients typically excited or afraid to use color? If afraid, do you persuade them to take risks? HO: Most clients come to the table with a palette they prefer, but how those colors are executed usually needs to be tweaked. Whites are perceived to be playing it safe, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often the hardest to get right.

1. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid to go bold, start small by introducing color through everyday accessories like planters, bowls or books organized by hue. 2. Define areas of the home using color through artwork by displaying vibrant pieces amid a monochromatic or neutral palette. 3. Look to nearby nature for palette inspiration: ocean blues, leaflike greens and reds, earthy browns and gem tones. 4. Give neutrals a subtle yet interesting pop by bringing in metallics like gold and silver. 5. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to take risks; embrace patterns and palettes that speak to you.

COLOR THEORIES

Whether they’re inspired by the warm neutral hues of the desert in winter or the vivid shades of flowers in bloom, Arizona designers are likely to take the landscape to heart when choosing a palette. Here, four experts share their take on how to use color to complement the surroundings, establish a mood or even create a sense of surprise in the spaces they create for their clients. Lynne Beyer: I always encourage people to take risks. I love design that is unpredictable, and so do my clients. Of course, paint, wallcoverings, fabrics and finishes can be easily changed over the years, whereas the more permanent things like flooring, tile and countertops are more of an investment. I like to use color where it’s not so costly to change it as one evolves over time. Moods can be finicky, so it’s best to think about helping clients stay flexible when they want to be. Katherine Pullen: Some of the elements that influence our color palette relate to the personal tastes and experiences of our clients, while other influences relate to place. When asked about the latest and greatest in color, we often react by pointing to a beautiful mountain, meadow or lake (whether in the desert or the high country) and reinforce the notion that nature never goes out of style.

LX_AZ37_EOD_Color.indd 255

Claire Ownby: I really like to see the location of the home and the views surrounding it when developing a palette; the surroundings can have a really big impact on its selection and success. Because I prefer more neutral hues in my own personal spaces, I don’t necessarily push my clients into using a palette if they aren’t naturally drawn to it. I don’t feel vibrant color is necessary to make a successful interior; however, I am inclined to contrast textures and hues to create depth and interest. Tony Sutton: One of my favorite projects we did was a Tuscan-style house in Whisper Rock—a gorgeous, well-done home in neutrals with some burgundy reds. The basement has a secret door to the wine cellar, and it’s like walking into a contemporary New York nightclub. I painted the ceilings the fluorescent-white color used on highways, and we put a red translucent paint over that so it glows. We gave the space a completely different color from the rest of the house to convey liveliness and high action.

What influenced you to create this kitchen design? My inspiration for the design of the kitchen was a classic Regency style, in keeping with the more traditional aspects of design I incorporated throughout the rest of the condo. I gave the kitchen a solid color to work with—black—and then blended both traditional elements and modern ones.

herzlinger kitchen photo and headshot: nick johnson.

Why did you go with a darker palette? In smaller spaces, I think it’s much more of an elegant statement to use color. I use white when I have larger spaces to work with, but I wanted this kitchen to be a jewel box, so I chose black. How important is the design of the kitchen for a home, and how do you approach kitchens in general? The design of the kitchen and master bath in a home are equally important; usually, those two rooms are what make a home more salable. I approach the design of a kitchen first based on the clients’ needs: Do they have children? Do they enjoy cooking? Do they entertain a lot? These questions usually lead to the design and layout of the space. Is there one luxury appliance every homeowner should splurge on? A crystal ice maker that crushes the ice. I’m putting them in kitchens, bars, butler’s pantries and game rooms. luxesource.com / 261

For an extensive renovation of his own Phoenix house— where he acted as both the architectural designer and decorator—James McIntyre illuminated the kitchen with Moorish stars. “They’re nice bits of jewelry to create mood and escape to the fantasy that we’re in the Moroccan desert,” he says. The painting by Joe Andoe, he adds, “is a classic late 20th-century contrast to the textures and ethnicity of the house. Plus, it acts as a great focal point to the dark kitchen.”

KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL As more kitchens collaborate with the dining area in terms of function and look, designers are constantly stepping up their game, carefully helping clients through a plethora of design choices to create playful, innovative and sophisticated spaces that stand up to any other room in the house. We turned to these pros for insight. James McIntyre: The inspiration for my own kitchen (left) was a moody, dark gentleman’s club—I love a bit of a “lounge” feeling. It reminds me of the moodiness of the famous Arizona Biltmore hotel, which is only a few blocks from my home. The disadvantage, of course, is all the fingerprints on the high-gloss black lacquer. My clients rarely let me use black lacquer because of that, but this time I thought: Why not? It’s my house! Marc Soloway: We’ve created hidden pantries and, in one project, a wall of counter-to-ceiling glass that makes the kitchen feel as if it’s a part of the outside. We’ve also made areas of glass operable so you can open up the entire wall, which allows the kitchen counter to seamlessly connect with the patio counter. Robert Moric: A lot is expected of the modern kitchen: more functions, tools and solutions. One trend is to have two cabinet fronts in contrasting

finishes; for example, a hard surface of anodized aluminum for one and a warm wood finish for the other. There’s also a proliferation of noncooking appliances geared around entertaining and healthy living, like those used for wine storing and cooling as well as juicing. Jon Bernhard: Our clients are either foodies and require an extensive range of cooking devices to allow for grilling, baking, braising, roasting, sauteéing and steaming—with natural gas, if possible—or those who have staff and design the kitchen so that a dirty kitchen or butler’s pantry will be concealed from the dining room. With the growing trend toward fresh, organic food and the increased experimentation with herbs, a vertical garden within the kitchen is a more frequent feature. This “fixture” provides a temperature-, light- and humidity-controlled environment for growing vertical rows of fruit, vegetables and herbs. luxesource.com / 263

ALL ABOUT:

The materials used to construct a residence are more than just the bones of the structure; they become the canvas for the treasures, both practical and decorative, that transform a house into a lovable home. A top trend of late is bringing the outdoors in, as more builders are incorporating natural stone and locally sourced materials in their projects. Yet most intriguing is the personal spaces where they are appearing: a stone wall in the bedroom, a log ceiling for the master bath and built-in brick shelving in the dining room, among others. These organic materials strengthen a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection to the outdoors, a common objective among todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designs, with scenic views and as much natural light as possible also ranking high on homeownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lists of musthaves. Read on to see how the right material can impact a space in the best way.

Inspired by the major rock outcroppings on a site in Scottsdale, architect Wendell Burnette designed a dramatic courtyard house that feels carved from the landscape. The master bath features a 6,000-pound exterior wall that opens to a private courtyard for outdoor showering. Collaborating with interior designers Craig Leavitt and Stephen Weaver, the architect covered walls and floors in onyx.

Pared-down geometric gestures contribute to the tranquility of a Scottsdale house architect Hugh Huddleson designed for clients who asked for “Zen glamour.” In the rear garden, stone posts support eaves trimmed in blades of copper. Huddleson, who wanted the house to look like it was composed of “abstracted boulders and rock ledges set in the landscape,” worked with builder Glenn Farner, who sourced all the stone throughout the house from the same quarry for a consistent look.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR SELECTING MATERIALS 1. Mimic elements found in local nature to provide environmental context to your home’s design. 2. Make an architectural feature, like a fireplace surround, kitchen island, front door or staircase, stand out by crafting it in an unexpected material. 3. Ensure the materials used in the furniture complement those found in the home’s structural elements. 4. To create a seamless eye-flow in a space, incorporate glass pieces, such as coffee and side tables. 5. Choose materials for the exterior façade that enhance the home’s surroundings rather than compete with them.

Whitewashed double-adobe brick walls and log beams provide a tactile feel to the great room of a 1980s Santa Fe house by interior designer Chandler Prewitt, who sought the assistance of builder Douglas Maahs for the extensive refurbishment. Echoing the wall color is a pair of Ebanista’s Milano sofas; the coffee table is by Murray’s Iron Works.

ANTHONY SALCITO Home Builder

How did the materials in this courtyard (above) fit into the overall design of the residence? The home is rural Mediterranean, and all of these materials are reminiscent of that style of architecture. We refer to the stone facing as a DC Ranch blend; it was cultivated from the site. What other memorable materials did you use to construct this space?

There’s wood flooring reclaimed from Europe. Also, all of the walls are hand-finished with imported plaster, and there are French bricks in the ceilings. Do you often use sustainable building materials in your projects? Yes, and we incorporated a lot here in this particular design; a good example are the eco-friendly, unfaced,

formaldehyde-free insulation batts manufactured by John Mansfield—and they use all-natural binders. Are you finding any trends happening in Arizona home design right now? I would say this trend started years ago, but we continue to see more light, bright shades— whites and grays—that are used to contrast dark tones on interiors.

Builder Anthony Salcito was charged with constructing a sprawling Mediterranean-style house in Scottsdale with a series of wings connected by courtyards. Salcito, who used local stone and Douglasfir beams hand-hewn onsite, echoed the aesthetic established by designer David Michael Miller. “We achieved the desired weathered look the interior designer was going for,” Salcito says.

MATERIAL WORLD

From materials as ancient as mud adobe bricks to innovative, stain-resistant finishes, builders are turning to a range of the new and the old to bring architectural drawings to life. Sustainable materials are on the rise, too, in just about every step of the process. These four builders, gifted with an artisan’s eye for the smallest detail, share some of the materials they’re incorporating to bring interest and authenticity to the homes they’re crafting for clients. Randy Arnett-Romero: This home’s stone materials (shown), which consist of a mixture of granite, limestone and travertine, might have been gathered out of a field at the time it was built. We set the stone in more horizontal lines, mimicking the way a structure would be brought out of the ground layer by layer as it went up. As far as materials for current projects, we’re using pitted eroded steel, a product of ours we’ve found in the bone salvage yards of reclaimed steel outlets. It has our own signature texture and finish, and it’s unsurpassed as the newest untapped resource in the market. We use it for slab tops, tile backsplashes, wine cellars, cooking hoods and adornments to fireplace fronts—all the way down to drink coasters!

John Schultz: When it comes to reclaimed materials, our two favorites are beams and stone. Reclaimed timbers also bring so much warmth and substance to a project when dealt with and installed properly. We’ve been using large reclaimed timbers and planking in several of our homes for the last 10 years. Reclaimed European cobblestone and interior tiles are also wonderful products to work with. One project we worked on had antique mosaic tile sculptures from South America built into the walls. We also use salvaged roof tile from Europe as well as beautiful fireplace surrounds from Italy. Many people are trying to imitate reclaimed materials, but you just do not get the same look or feel.

Scott Pfeiffer: We once used curved glass on a large, contemporary home. The house had an amazing view of Camelback Mountain, but when the glass came out, the view was so distorted it looked like you were viewing it from a funhouse mirror! After reordering the entire package, the view was perfect and the glass was an amazing statement. As for sustainable materials, we’re the first to try and push them. Some of the bamboo on the market is sustainable, durable and great quality, and I believe there’s still a lot of room for this concept in our industry.

Nancy Brunkhorst: In our custom home designs, our favorite material is our hand-formed plaster. We use it for designing kitchen hoods, fireplaces, paneled walls, decorative ceilings and crowning touches in rooms. It’s the perfect detail for the cleaner, more modern designs trending throughout our industry. We’ve also been incorporating different forms of metal; we’ve used hand-rolled metal for beams and shiny slips of metal between large slabs of stone on floors for just a bit of punch. luxesource.com / 273

Architecture ALL ABOUT:

Just like the best relationships start out with a solid foundation, so, too, do exceptional homes. Without good bones, there is little an interior designer or a landscape architect can do to transform a house from ordinary to extraordinary. It’s up to the architect to balance concrete and steel with the native site or find breathing room in a city brownstone by envisioning floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard. Architects are challenged with marrying exteriors and interiors to create a seamless look, anticipating how each space will need to function from the start and incorporating the right features to maximize the potential of every room. The structural details—clean lines, intricate woodworking or even a spiral staircase— are the first things to define the character of a house and some of the last things departing guests forget when they leave. Whatever the style, be it traditional or modern, a well-constructed abode should serve as a steadfast yet visionary beginning for a standout home.

For their vacation retreat in the Santa Catalina Mountains, a Chicago couple asked architect Clayton R. Joyce to design a classic modernist house. Mullioned floor-to-ceiling windows and an open floor plan allow all-around views of the desert site to penetrate the interiors. “The 2-by-6-foot panes of glass pixelate the view, but they don’t interrupt it,” Joyce says. “Spatially, it really works.”

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON ARCHITECTURE

Drawing on elements of a homeowner’s childhood house by the iconic midcentury Arizona architect Al Beadle, architect Brent Kendle crafted a streamlined oasis in the Sonoran Desert. An interior hallway offers multiple views of the exterior, which Kendle designed with three courtyards. The bronze sculpture, titled Internal Reflection 2, is by Jennyfer Stratman; a trio of mixed-media works by Franco DeFrancesca presides over the landing.

LX_AZ37_EOD_Architecture.indd 276

1. Authenticity is paramount: If the exterior is a tribute to Mediterranean style, the genre’s ornate columns and archways should be introduced in the interiors. 2. Create an entrance with a statement-making staircase, with features such as a floating stairwell or risers highlighted in a mosaic tile. 3. Emphasize natural light by rethinking the home’s fenestration using clerestories, skylights and glass French doors. 4. Building materials should serve as an ode to the area’s historical character, such as classic brick in a New York condo. 5. Don’t sacrifice function for style: When building a home from scratch, focus first on how it will facilitate your lifestyle.

To fulfill the design dreams of Francophile clients who wanted a traditional home with a French twist, architect Matthew Thomas and interior designer Caroline Tyler DeCesare, working with builder Nancy Brunkhorst, gutted and remodeled the interiors of a Paradise Valley home. In the entrance hall, as throughout, the original millwork and trim were removed, redesigned and replaced. The skeleton of the central stairway was salvaged, then elegantly rebuilt with wrought-iron railings.

The roof design of this home is striking. How did you come up with it? The clients wanted a large overhang to face south for a large patio, hot tub and pool. However, I wanted to let the sun down into that space, so I carved out that piece of the roof.

EYE on DESIGN

What did you use to construct the roof? The material is rusted steel— mild hot-rolled steel that has been allowed to weather naturally—so, to me, it’s just a good desert material. Once it rusts, it stays that way; there’s no maintenance, and it’s in harmony with the landscape in terms of color and texture. What’s nice about this house is it’s pretty simple construction and, relatively speaking, budgetconscious because it is a simple architectural diagram. What’s one of your favorite aspects about the end result? The way the house ended up nestled into the site worked out well. We pushed it way back, gave it privacy from the neighbors and the road and focused the sight lines on the distant views. Are you seeing any trends in Arizona home design? The biggest thing I’ve noticed is that houses are becoming more reasonably sized. Most are 3,500 to 5,000 square feet, versus 6,000 to 10,000 square feet—or even bigger— 10 years ago.

Byrnes says. Landscaping, designed by Stephen Bardorf, includes low-water plants that reinforce the desert connection.

“I’ve often asked myself if it would be possible to take an ancient material like adobe and construct a modern house,” says architect Kevin Howard, who did just that for a couple in The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain. Adobe walls continue from the exterior into the entryway, where a dramatic front door is made of local mesquite wood, steel and glass. The adobe offered advantages that were both aesthetic and practical, breaking up the horizontal expanses of the house while offering superb insulation.

“The home’s color palette spun off the travertine’s silvery greige color, which is both warm and serene,” says architect C.P. Drewett, who used Italian travertine for both the interior and exterior walls of a modern home he designed in Scottsdale. Working with builder Mark Laidlaw, he installed motorized door panels on one corner of the living room to turn the patio and living room into one big indoor-outdoor space.

THE ART OF ARCHITECTURE

In Arizona, it’s all about the landscape. While architects are experimenting with materials and styles as never before, as well as reinterpreting favorite vernaculars, they all share one goal: to create homes that are permeated and enriched by the beauty of the desert around them. These pros explain their strategies.

C.P. Drewett: The site of the home is always my point of origin. Here (above), the architecture was a direct result of the boulder-strewn site at the base of Pinnacle Peak, and I wanted the design to echo the stacking, random nature of Pueblo architecture, merged with modernism. The vein-cut travertine provided a coursed structural module—making it the primary building component—and the zinc fascia gives a crisp modern edge to the cantilevered patio elements.

Dale Gardon: The site and physical context, including the topography, landscape and adjacent buildings, all form the basis for my designs. Given that, we’ve enjoyed executing authentic versions of Ranch vernacular, Spanish and Mediterranean-influenced styles—formally elegant or casually rustic—as well as modern interpretations of those styles. Some clients desire a clean modern interior, which can be incorporated in a traditional or contemporary home.

Kevin Howard: When man came out of the cave, he began using mud adobe brick. The whole concept behind this house (opposite) was using ancient materials—mesquite and adobe—and combining them with a few modern elements, like steel and glass, and reinterpreting them in a clean, modern way. Frank Lloyd Wright introduced organic modernism, and for me the future is organic. But we’re in the 21st century, so I like to combine various elements.

Ron Robinette: In most projects, I’m looking for multiple ways for interior spaces to connect to exterior ones, which, in our environment, are just as important as interior living areas. There’s something magical about being in a space that is enclosed in glass but shaded in a way that the home still feels open to the outdoors. I always like to include multiple outdoor living areas and gardens so each might respond to a different time of year in our Sonoran Desert.

ALL ABOUT:

Living Spaces If there’s one room in the house that most embraces a homeowner’s personality, it’s the living room. This is where choices such as bold color and crazy patterns can come out to play and where a homeowner’s love of antiques, modern furniture or artwork are as welcome in the space as a close friend. Here, we look at the innovative ways designers are using accessories and statement furniture to create a customized style that’s both relaxing and inviting for family members and guests alike.

“Desert glam” is how designer Dana Lyon describes the interiors she created for empty nesters in Scottsdale. Vibrant blues pop in a predominantly neutral living room, where materials such as silk draperies shimmer with metallic threads and polished-silver accents add extra shine. Seating areas allow for both group conversations and tête-à-têtes. A work by artist Joan Miró from Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco hangs above the fireplace, which was refaced in white limestone.

MODERN LIVING

With so many options when it comes to living spaces, how does a designer decide which direction to take? Here, experts share their opinions on what goes into making a living room an inviting and stylish space fit for both entertaining a crowd and indulging in solitary time.

David Michael Miller: Given the height of the beams and ceiling in this living room (shown), we wanted to create a sense of intimacy and warmth, so we chose furniture of a significant scale that would help bring balance. By carefully using generously proportioned room elements and furniture together with warm color tones, the room feels cozy and intimate. John G. Martin: The perfect living room has a variety of seating arrangements that work to create a space for both a one-on-one and group conversation and is where friends and guests do not feel detached from one another. We always want to create an inviting appeal to people to come in, sit down and enjoy time together. Lori Carroll: In any living space, it’s important that the furnishings are properly placed so they take advantage of an incredible view or an architectural feature. Lighting is also key: A space that includes ambient, task and accent lighting creates an overall balanced ambience. Laura Kehoe: The key to keeping a living space fresh and surprising is to layer the room with a variety of materials and to focus on the way the homeowners live. People are entertaining more casually, and by listening to the client we’re able to come up with new ideas that are personalized. We’re currently working on a unique octagon-shaped living area in the center of our clients’ home. Because the roof can be opened in this area, we’re designing a custom fire feature surrounded by lounge seating and a bar at the one end. It’s sure to be a wonderful space to entertain and lounge with a cocktail. luxesource.com / 287

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON FASHIONING A QUALITY LIVING SPACE 1. Create separate sitting areas in the living room for a dynamic multifunctional space—a sectional makes a great spot for watching television, for example, while a cozy wingback by a window becomes the perfect reading nook. 2. Add color through artwork, using the piece’s color palette as inspiration for the fabrics and rugs. 3. Enliven a room that lacks significant architectural interest by using wallpaper to create a focal wall or adding crown molding. 4. Invest in quality primary pieces, such as a beautifully made, comfortable sofa, to personify the space and set the tone for the living area. 5. Dark, moody paint colors are particularly of-the-moment, but be sure to put some serious thought into the color of your walls in your living space before committing; they’ll be the foundation for your design.

For a couple’s Phoenix penthouse, “we wanted to create a serene sanctuary within the city,” explains architectural designer Sarah Swartz Wessel, who redesigned the space with her husband, architectural designer and general contractor Ethan Wessel. They eliminated a third bedroom to create a clean, open layout that showcases the views as well as the owners’ collection of art and furnishings.

Architectural Designer

Tell us about the mood you were aiming to create in this room—and in the home in general. We wanted a minimal and architecturally refined interior that would not compete with the dramatic views. The changes in natural light throughout the day and across the seasons is quite intense, so the limited material palette provides a sense of peace and calm. The millwork detailing at the window walls conceals shades that allow the city view to be “turned off” when desired. Favorite end result of this project? The sense of specific experiences within the larger open floor plan. The experiences of eating at the kitchen table, sitting up to the bar on the left and being in the living space in the foreground—and the TV area just beyond the frame of the image—are all quite different and feel intimate, although they happen within the shared open living plan. We wanted the spaces to work for large parties as well as quiet movie nights at home. In your opinion, what are the key ingredients of a perfect living room? Make sure to attend to all the senses—wonderful music or the peaceful sound of a water feature, a chair that is comfortable to the touch, incense, a perfect cup of tea and a beautifully crafted or natural view. luxesource.com / 289

ERIK PETERSON Architect

In creating outdoor spaces, it’s essential to marry the inside and the outside. How did you achieve that here? The scale of this patio and the adjacent living room needed to be the same, and they needed to flow together. Here, we used large sliding glass doors, which allow the spaces to open to each other. The outdoor living area needs to be a space you want to go out and use; if it’s not cozy, then you won’t use it. Tell us about the furniture placement of the two spaces. They mirror-image each other. The outdoor patio and its adjacent living room both have a comfortable scale, a beam/truss ceiling, a chandelier, a fireplace, an area rug and cozy furniture. How did the surrounding landscape affect your design? The goal was to bring the landscape onto the patios of the home and feature the desert plants as art sculptures. I also love to integrate color into outdoor spaces. Here, we brought it in through the tiles around the pool and in the colors of the walls, cushions and pots, which blend well with the desert landscape.

Landscape architect Chad Robert was charged with creating an optimal outdoor area for entertaining on the 1,500-square-foot balcony of a couple’s midtown Phoenix penthouse. While architectural designers Sarah Swartz Wessel and Ethan Wessel added a third set of telescoping patio windows to enhance the flow, Robert made multiple improvements on the terrace, including staining the pavers, adding custom planters and designing built-in lighting.

OUTSIDE THE BOX

Turning exterior spaces into outdoor rooms that act as extensions of the interiors, all while curating plant materials and respecting the land, is at the crux of today’s landscape design. And with the landscape architecture coming into play at the very beginning of a project, the result is a cohesive outdoor living space that holds as much importance as a residence’s architecture and interior design. Here, landscape architects lend their thoughts on how to curate such a dynamic space. Chad Robert: That whole space (above) is about the view, so we wanted the balcony to be somewhat simple and clean without too much distracting color. We designed the tree planters with LED tables so at nighttime they have a glow to them that creates a soft ambient light. They illuminate the whole patio space, yet you can still see city lights. We wanted the planters to feel bulky, with thicker edges, but they’re made of fiberglass, so they’re lightweight. We couldn’t take them through the front or we’d damage the wallcovering, so we hired the rope team that cleans the Grand Canyon Skywalk to hoist them over the side of the building. Margaret Joplin: There are no rules as to what every outdoor space should have. Each setting commands its own solution. To me, that keeps things fresh and special. I trust my intuition and am willing to let an idea evolve along the way. Arizona is a big place with many climates and has many plantings I’m drawn to. I’ll always love the juniper flats of northern Arizona as well as the

beautiful saguaro, ocotillo, yucca and agave areas. And who can resist the ephemeral areas of wildflowers that evolve as their environment changes? Colors, textures, rocks, open sky—what more is there?

Jeff Berghoff: I use the architecture as a starting point for the flow of the landscape design, creating outdoor destinations for our clients to utilize as living spaces and ensuring their ease of use for entertaining. I usually base designs on traditional and classic styles—I want the gardens to be around for generations. And yet, we’re always sourcing materials from new vendors and discovering materials throughout our travels. Jeremy McVicars: There are so many remarkable plants we like to mix and layer. For instance, we’ll combine various shades of greens—gray, dark, bright— and then add colorful accents throughout. We’re also constantly bringing in new materials from overseas; recently, we imported beautiful limestone from India. luxesource.com / 295

OUTDOOR

“The house is separated and pulled apart, which created all kinds of views and areas for me to work with,” landscape designer Jeff Berghoff says of a Mediterranean-style residence in Scottsdale. He strategically chose vibrant plantings closer to the house while incorporating native plantings on the periphery to seamlessly blend into the desert beyond. A courtyard breakfast patio features a table by the house’s interior designer, David Michael Miller.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR DESIGNING OUTSIDE

this page: berghoff/miller photo: nick johnson. opposite: anderson photo: grey crawford. gers photo: winquist photography.

1. Clearly define areas for different activities such as for dining, lounging or gardening. 2. Don’t overcrowd the areas; allow for breathing room and space to wander. 3. Incorporate native plantings, which will appear to have grown naturally and thrive in the environment. 4. Be sure to provide cover from the sun when designing for the outdoors, so that guests will have a place to stay cool alfresco. 5. If you have a killer view, build the home around it and ensure it remains unobstructed when creating outdoor spaces.

When visiting a newly listed house in Paradise Valley, “we walked through the doors, turned the corner, saw Camelback Mountain—and that was is it,” the owner recalls. For an inviting outdoor seating area, interior designer Jill Anderson accented neutral furnishings with fabrics in bright patterns.

Merging natural and manmade environments was the goal of landscape designer Tray Gers, who staged organ pipe cactus, ironwood trees and other native plantings on the grounds of a house in Tucson. “In keeping with the contemporary design, I planted repeating elements in a linear way, rather than in curves,” Gers explains.

JUST LIKE A LEOPARD’S SPOTS NEVER CHANGE, NEITHER DOES THE APPEAL OF THIS TRIED-AND-TRUE CLASSIC PATTERN. WHETHER THE PRINT IS MAKING A BOLD INTERIORS STATEMENT—SIMILAR TO LATE FRENCH WRITER AND PLAYWRIGHT JEAN COCTEAU’S STUDY DECORATED BY MADELEINE CASTAING—OR GRACING TODAY’S HIGH-FASHION CATWALKS, LIKE THAT OF TOM FORD’S READY-TO-WEAR AUTUMN/WINTER 2016 LINE, THIS PRIMITIVE YET SPIRITED STAPLE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY TO REMAIN REFRESHINGLY RELEVANT WHILE INSTANTLY ADDING A LUXURIOUS TOUCH TO EVERY ENSEMBLE OR SPACE.
