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!

memo KATHLEEN MITCHELL PUBLISHER

Happy New Year! I always look forward to the new year: it’s a time for self-improvement, clean slates and fresh starts, but it’s also a time to reflect over the past year’s accomplishments. I am always amazed at the support and admiration that I see and hear within our design industry, and they all turned out for this year’s Chicago Design Summit, where there was standing room only during the day. Plus, the attendance that evening for the VIP Luxury Gala broke all previous records, showing the solidarity and strength of our design community. Industry professionals also joined together to celebrate Design Chicago, a two-day event that focused on kitchen, bathroom, home furnishings and outdoor showrooms with educational seminars throughout the two days. Plus, Luxe Interiors + Design hosted an event and discussion on “The Evolving Definition of Luxury” in DeAurora’s showroom; it was a full house with over 200 attendees. The Chicago design industry is excited, the world is looking at us, and we have some of the top talent right here in our community. In this issue, Luxe is embracing that talent with our annual Gold List, so pour a glass of wine, snuggle up and enjoy. Cheers!

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.

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.

LUXE RECOGNIZES THE DESIGNERS TO WATCH IN THE NEW YEAR, IDENTIFYING SOME OF THE BEST OF THE BEST ACROSS CITIES BRIMMING WITH EMERGING DESIGN TALENT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH


PHOTO: MANUEL RODRIGUEZ.

Blending classic silhouettes in neutral tones with accessories and art that bring us back to our cultural roots, this Alexander M. Reid-designed space redefines luxury with the innovative style that characterizes the up-andcoming batch of designers currently on our radar.


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.”

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.”

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.”

RADAR / NEW GUARD

WHY WE LOVE THEM: Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop and Kristen Ekeland bring New York edge to Chicago, thoughtfully curating homes with a touch of whimsy. ON THE HORIZON: A golf clubhouse and a lakeside estate in Canada are in the works for Studio Gild. IN THEIR WORDS: “Our firm is a partnership in the truest sense. We collaborate constantly, drawing on our collective experience to deliver the best possible results.”

JESSE DESANTI

San Clemente, CA | jettecreative.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Jesse DeSanti uses simple materials in homes that are sustainable, airy and delicate. ON THE HORIZON: DeSanti is helping to restore and revamp a 45-year-old restaurant in a small beach town, celebrating its history and seaside surroundings. IN HER WORDS: “My style is warm, inviting and livable. Each home has its own identity, but each represents my refined, eclectic style that pulls together modern, midcentury, Spanish, bohemian and traditional influences.”

 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. IN HER WORDS: “Each project varies in style from modern, to transitional and traditional, but my overall style is clean, with streamlined silhouettes and pops of color.”

BRANT MCFARLAIN ƒ

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.”

WHY WE LOVE THEM: The Munger sisters update classic pieces with fresh, current materials and use their expertise in art consulting to create homes that balance luxury with livability. 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

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.”

@patternbase

WHO: Kristi O’Meara and Audrey Victoria Keiffer, the creative minds behind The Patternbase, a surface and textile design studio based in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. WHAT: From behind-the-scenes images of studio work to fashion inspiration and fine art, The Patternbase’s feed changes often. There is one consistent theme, though: #nofilter. O’Meara and Keiffer instead choose to accentuate the reality of each image. WHY: If you find understated and simplistic is for the birds, then you’ll appreciate The Patternbase’s full-on maximalism aesthetic. Scroll through for colorful and wonderfully chaotic eye candy.

ONE BENNETT PARK

The structure rising at the corner of Grand Avenue and North Peshtigo Court is already making a name for itself. One Bennett Park marks world-renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern’s debut on the Chicago skyline, and upon completion in 2019, it will be the tallest all-residential tower in the city, standing 836 feet in height. It will also be one of the best places to be if you’re looking for green space in the Streeterville neighborhood. Bennett Park, designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, will front the structure, offering a 1.7-acre public lawn with a private entrance for owners of Stern’s Postmodern residences. Inside the condominium building, expect the utmost in luxury. Sixty-nine units will range from two to four bedrooms, with asking prices from $2 million to $15 million for a full-floor penthouse. High-end fixtures include wideplank oak flooring, Perla Venato stone countertops and Statuario white polished-marble tile. onebennettpark.com

CHECK IN THE GRAY

One of the newest places to bed down in Chicago’s Loop is housed inside one of the city’s most historic structures, the iconic New York Life Insurance Building. Under the influence of Gensler architects and interiors firm Beleco, it now stands as The Kimpton Gray Hotel. The interiors are defined by Kimpton’s quirky and modern style juxtaposed with historic details and design elements restored to perfection. Upon entry, a coffered ceiling and a grand marble staircase evoke a bygone era, leading to upper-level hallways where original marble floors and wainscoting remain outside the 293 guest rooms. The Mad Man-esque lobby bar, Vol. 39, named after a set of vintage encyclopedias found during the renovation, features tufted sofas and gilded accents, while the top-floor, South American-inspired restaurant Boleo offers a retractable glass roof for alfresco-like dining regardless of the weather. grayhotelchicago.com 124 / LUXESOURCE.COM

DATE BOOK TOM STRINGER

Chicago designer Tom Stringer’s personal style is rooted in the classics, with his love for travel and adventure introducing eclectic and cultured elements in his own home. From a loft in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, the fearless leader behind Tom Stringer Design Partners outfits homes around the globe with his mantra always top of mind: “Keep it simple and relaxed.” Though the jet-setter is greatly influenced by the world outside his home city, it’s the streets of Chicago—filled with vast art offerings and world-famous architecture—that inspire him on a daily basis. We caught up with the well-traveled creative to find out where to go in the Windy City for a design-minded tour. tomstringer.com 10 a.m. It’s opening time at The Golden Triangle. This place is not to be missed for its amazing selection of vintage and modern furnishings from all corners of the planet. The shop exquisitely displays an eclectic mix of Asian and European antiques, artifacts, lighting and accessories in curated vignettes. 11 a.m. Head over to Primitive and explore five stories of world-class collections of antiques, textiles, furniture, jewelry and fine art. This showroom beautifully integrates one-of-a-kind treasures and luxury merchandise, featuring such names as Kelly Wearstler and Ralph Lauren Home, as well as its own line of modern furniture. 1 p.m. You’ll need to book ahead of time for lunch at Roister, Chef Grant Achatz’s new casual-concept restaurant on Fulton Market, but it’s worth the time and effort. Here, you’ll eat some of the best fried chicken of your life. 3 p.m. Staying in the same neighborhood, make a stop at Pagoda Red. The store is stocked with modern art, 18th- and 19th-century Chinese 126 / LUXESOURCE.COM

antiques and beautiful furnishings around every single corner. 4 p.m. Hardly a secret, yet often overlooked, is the seemingly compact gallery Douglas Rosin Decorative Arts and Antiques, at the corner of Wells and Superior streets. This shop spans two floors with hawk paintings, sculptures, furniture and estate jewelry. It doesn’t open until 11 a.m., so it’s perfect for an after-lunch visit. 5 p.m. For a hidden gem, visit Kneen & Co on Fullerton Parkway. Tucked away in the basement of an old residential building, it houses some of the most beautiful and exclusive tabletop décor. This is luxury at its finest. 6 p.m. Take a fashion break and zip through Barneys on Oak Street. Make your way to the top floor and relax at Freds, a perfect modern-day bistro with Instagram-worthy views of Lake Michigan. It’s my top choice for a shopping-centered pick-me-up. 6:30 p.m. On your way out, swing by the houseware shop Chelsea Passage, adjacent to Barneys. For the truly

design-addicted, it boasts an incredible selection of books and small accessories perfect for gifts, capped with a superknowledgeable staff to steer you in the right direction. 7 p.m. Wind down at Ada Street in the West Loop, where you’ll find Smyth and The Loyalist. Whether you’re in the mood for fine dining at Smyth (which offers a tasting menu with eight or 12 courses) or, a floor below, drinks and casual fare at The Loyalist, this two-in-one Chicago hot spot welcomes everyone. Dress code for both establishments: Come as you are. I’ll go for that warm welcome!

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.


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.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.

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. A cool and clever exploration of “less is more,” the series’ star chair marries an unexpected pairing of steel and woven cotton, proving that opposites are often better when they’re together.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.

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.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.

Alberto Villalobos & Mercedes Desio 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.”

Brit Kleinman 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.” Credit: AVO

Michelle Morgan Harrison 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 LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

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 / 175


THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

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

LUXE LOOKS AT THE KITCHEN TRENDS SURE TO COOK UP EXCITEMENT IN 2017.

PHOTO: SIMON MAXWELL.

WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

For this spectacular space by London-based Peek Architecture + Design, an on-trend mix of brass, Carrara marble, antique mirrors and deep-blue cabinetry creates a sophisticated kitchen unit that sits well in the historic space and allows the ornate plasterwork to shine.


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.


THE LOOK / THE REPORT

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

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

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

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

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

KONSTANT ARCHITECTURE & PLANNING

An innate desire to draw, design and create led Paul Konstant to architecture as his chosen path. “I started Konstant Architecture & Planning in 1980 with the hope that my passion would become my livelihood,” he says. “What started as a dream has grown into a thriving office of talented people who turn our client’s concepts into reality.” From West Coast to East Coast; ski lodges to island cottages; and city flats to country estates, Konstant Architecture & Planning’s projects comprise a variety of regions and styles that bring their own unique challenges and design dynamics to the table. “I strive to create a solution that is respectful to its surroundings, fresh and responsive to the client’s needs, and delights their families,” Konstant says. Currently, the firm is working on a cottage on the New England coast and a villa in Tuscany—perfectly characteristic of its well-rounded repertoire. “The inspiration is endless. There are so many great architects today that it continually feeds and motivates me,” he says. “Beyond architecture, experiences always inform my work as well as art, music and nature. Most importantly, clients inspire with their enthusiasm, ideas and needs. I like to say that good clients make good projects.” Drawing from the past but looking forward, Konstant and his team recently created a new division, Konstant Home, that focuses on the firm’s growing interior design services as well as its evolving product line.

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I love design that balances traditional elements with modern. Old and new balance each other out and their relationship in a room makes the space interesting.

AMY KARTHEISER DESIGN

With current projects that include a 1920s home for a young family in the North Shore; a home for empty nesters who haven’t updated in more than 15 years; and a high-rise rehab in the city, Amy Kartheiser keeps her design projects interesting. Principal and owner of her namesake firm, Amy Kartheiser Design, Kartheiser takes a collaborative approach to every project, giving each a unique design result. “My process starts with looking at the space and figuring out the narrative with the client. Great design comes through collaboration and dialogue,” she says. “My favorite part is pulling together the mood boards and presenting them to a client. I love that they get to finally see the atmosphere that the new décor will create.” Kartheiser came to design naturally. Growing up, her mother owned an interior design firm, and she spent much of her childhood going through fabric samples and poring over trade magazines for inspiration. Upon purchasing her first home and working on its design, she knew she needed to make a career change. Soon after, she partnered with her mother’s firm, and years later opened Amy Kartheiser Design in 2014. Known for her eye for detail, layering and smart mix of styles, Kartheiser creates inviting, personal and livable interiors. When asked what defines a successful project, she says, “that it’s a positive experience for everyone involved and that the client is thrilled with their new space. There is truly no better feeling than getting a call or a note from a client who loves the way their room, house or space turned out. It helps me sleep easier at night when that happens.”

How do you define luxury? Luxury is less defined by trends and fashion, and more about building and decorating a space according to the client’s tastes and needs. Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Good design is defined when beauty meets function. It’s also when you find the most appropriate solution for the space and for the client, while balancing the details to give the space personality.

01. The living room is original to this 1930s home, where modern furniture balances with historical references, such as the crown molding and fireplace mantel. 02.

Describe the philosophy behind your firm. Quite simply, we create beautiful outdoor environments of all kinds. It is our purpose to design, build and maintain elegant environments that succeed for many years into the future.

SCOTT BYRON & CO.

What began with two young guys more than 30 years ago, has evolved into 275 passionate employees contributing to the success of landscape design firm Scott Byron & Co. Creating remarkable landscapes in the luxury markets of Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, Scott Byron & Co. has built a growing reputation for designing unique garden landscapes that have a strong visual appeal, while being technically sound. Given the company’s continued success, it may come as a surprise that owner and CEO Scott Byron stumbled upon landscape architecture as a career. “I heard about landscape architecture from a friend who was studying it in college, and I thought it sounded interesting. I took a class, and on my first day, the professor told us to look around because only one of us would graduate from the program. I called my dad and said ‘that one person is going to be me.’ I loved it immediately and have been doing it ever since,” he says. To ensure every project’s success, Byron and his team go to great lengths, spending hours studying every nuance of the site. “We get to know the property’s slopes, its sun and shade exposures, how the rain hits its structures and how it drains. We observe wind patterns, traffic patterns and pet patterns,” he says. While landscape architecture is his passion, people top the priority list for Byron. “I love watching the success of the people around me. Everyone pulls together; and that dedication and loyalty is a pretty cool thing.”

ALL ABOUT:

Color PHOTO: NICK JOHNSON.

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 Chicagolandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading design pros for advice on how to approach color with confidence.


Design director Doug Roach focused on saturated colors in this Gold Coast abode. A Donald Sultan poppy silk screen and a Baker armchair and ottoman covered in sapphire Holland & Sherry fabric bring pops of blue, while a French folding stool from Karl Kemp Antiques in New York and Edward Fieldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; custom leather-bound sisal rug add warmth.

KATE MARKER Designer

What was your goal for this room? The family is fun and dynamic. They have three young children and love to have the house filled with friends and family, so I knew they would be open to something a bit unexpected.

Which hues do you personally prefer? I tend to gravitate toward neutrals and use rich colors in small doses. Layering in shades, textures and prints in an edited palette is my preference, and I love adding vibrant prints or vintage fabrics. In this case, we chose a striking mohair for the dining chairs. Do you find color makes people nervous? I have had clients who are wary— and that’s fine, as I love neutrals. But if the home needs color and the clients need a nudge, I encourage them to consider options for low-traffic areas—a basement that needs brightening or kids’ rooms that can be more adventurous—so it’s less of a commitment.

Veering away from the typical formal dining room, designer Kate Marker decided to incorporate a fun vibe into this space. She unexpectedly contrasted Verellen chairs upholstered in a bold textile from Hickory Chair with a Pierre Frey wallcovering boldly patterned with embroidered black ribbons purchased at Holly Hunt.

Could you speak to the mix of pattern and color? The wallpaper pattern is elegant and soft, but the high contrast between the black and white infuses so much energy; together, they complement each other perfectly for a classic yet not-too-serious look.

TIPS FOR USING COLOR IN YOUR HOME 1. If you’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, leaf-like 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. Don’t be afraid to take risks; embrace patterns and palettes that speak to you.

MAKE A SPLASH

When it comes to color, there are many different approaches. Some designers lean toward neutrals and brighten up the palette with small splashes of color. Others layer different shades of the same hue, while still others live by the Mantra “go big or go home.” However, no matter their approach, designers agree on one thing: Color can make or break a room. Britt Taner: There needs to be some element of color in order to add interest to a room. Books are always a great way to do this. For this library (left), the art and the books were the planned pop of color against the gray walls, providing a more dramatic and intimate feel for the room. The yellow chair was a late addition that really brought the room to life. Jessica Lagrange: We approach color by first considering our clients’ personalities and wants. We talk to them to find out who they are, what they like and whether they have décor ideas already brewing. I like to ask clients to look in their closets: What do you like to wear? What colors make you look and feel good? Donna Mondi: I love to use color to create intense drama: Black lacquered walls or daring jewel-toned mohair on a sofa can demand your attention and instantly set the tone for a space. Color can also be an outlet for a client’s bolder side that’s been dying to come

out and play. My personal art collection absolutely reflects my dark side and can take on an eerie or ethereal quality mixed with a whole lot of sexiness. Julia Buckingham: Color choice is probably the most important part of the design schematic. Clients’ personalities, especially their fashion choices, tell me so much about what is going to resonate with them and what colors are going to trip their trigger. My clients are pretty sophisticated with very discerning tastes, but that runs the gamut from monochromatic Jil Sander to the full-blown theatrics of head-to-toe Vivienne Westwood. Janet Blutter Shiff: For me, neutral is always the way to go. Then you can add color for the “pop,” and it’s easy to swap out—buy good quality furnishings in neutrals, and you can always change for seasons, for holidays or if you just get bored and want something different. Neutrals are so easy, and consider all the layers of colors. It’s like coffee— cappuccino, latte or espresso.

Kitchens ALL ABOUT:

Whether it’s a farmhouse-inspired retreat accented with copper cookware or a modern chef’s kitchen complete with sleek marble countertops and stainless-steel fixtures, today there are more options than ever for creating a functional and beautiful space for cooking and entertaining. With an endless variation of materials, island shapes and sizes, paint colors for cabinetry and backsplash designs, there are numerous ways to make a distinctive mark on the home’s foremost gathering place. Here, we turn to experts who share their inspiring ideas for making one of the busiest places in the home both modern and timeless.

Beautiful, functional and welcoming were the goals builders Bruce and Linda Ritter had for the kitchen of their Hinsdale home. “As much as you try to get people out of the kitchen, they tend to stay there anyway,” Linda Ritter says. Kitchen designer Laura O’Brien fabricated the custom white cabinetry and cerused quarter-sawn white-oak island topped with Calacatta marble. The range is from Abt.

Tell us about this project. This was an extensive remodel of a vacation home. A lot of thought was put into how to make the spaces relate well to each other and continue the thread of the aesthetic throughout the house. Our goal was to create a kitchen that was inviting and felt like an extension of the living space. Everything was chosen with the intention of creating a gathering place. What do your clients usually look for in a kitchen? A reinvention of the typical kitchen aesthetic is often the goal. These days, many of my clients envision a kitchen that reflects the warmth of their family home. Have you ever had clients take up cooking once you finished their kitchen? Definitelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;myself included! I put in a gorgeous range for a client, and I loved it so much I started using it in my own home.

HOME COOKING Try as one might, shooing guests out of a kitchen has always proved to be impossible, and modern design thinking means embracing the fact the kitchen will inevitably be the central gathering place of the home. Today, designers are looking to create social yet completely functional spaces that serve both the chef and visitors alike, as revealed through the following commentary. Andrea Goldman: The most important thing to consider with kitchens is what will make you love it more than any other room in the house. It’s truly the center of the home, and it can’t compromise function. A practical, working kitchen can still be beautiful. Ilene Chase: My clients look for very high-functioning, almost restaurant-style kitchens. They want to bring high-end appliances into their home while still feeling personal. And now many of these companies offer integrated facilities where clients can take cooking classes. When clients see what they can do with their appliances, then they get very excited. Doug Durbin: Our clients want personality in their kitchen. They are counting on us to realize their vision. Often, the completed design is so transformed, the homeowner naturally

spends more time in the space; cooking goes from being a hobby to a passion. Tom Stringer: Clients always request multiple prep zones to increase efficiency of the room along with a dedicated space for entertaining guests. I like to design a “keeping room”—you need a space designated in the kitchen for guests to gather with a drink or an hors d’oeuvre in hand to keep the cook company but also stay out of the way. Marshall Erb: The kitchen is the most important room in the home so, whether traditional or modern, I want our designs to stand the test of time. We avoid trendy backsplashes, colored appliances or bold countertops. To add personality, we look to lighting and wall colors that are easily switched out, while the core of the kitchen—like cabinetry, countertops and integrated appliances—stand in the background.

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 home’s connection to the outdoors, a common objective among today’s designs, with scenic views and as much natural light as possible also ranking high on homeowners’ lists of musthaves. Read on to see how the right material can impact a space in the best way.

What was the client looking for in the design of this home? The owner has had a home on this site for many years, but the family had outgrown it. It was demolished, and this house was built in its place. The client gave me and the architect, Mike Abraham, the task of making this new, larger home feel like it was an expansion of several phases over many years. Tell us about the materials you chose for this project. We used stone and wood so it would seem that sections of the house had been added onto over the years. Rusticated stone and reclaimed woodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; some of it from the original houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;helped achieve this result. We incorporated a combination of granite, quartz, limestone of different types and areas of origin, concrete and even river stones. Did the furnishings play a role? While the goal of the architectural design was to make it appear the house was of vintage age, we wanted the furnishings to reflect more of an up-todate feeling yet still pay homage to the comforts of tradition. The color palette reflects the exterior materials. There was a concentrated effort made to bring the outside into the interior of the house.

A studded glass sliding door leading into the media room of this Lincoln Park high-rise apartment provides the “wow” factor requested by the homeowners. General contractor Adam Piser installed the oversized sliding barn door on a large industrial slider. “That slider helped to fuse the ancient touches with the modern ones found throughout the home,” he says.


For the library of this Lincoln Park home, architect Kathryn Quinn incorporated such elements as European white-oak floors from Apex Wood Floors and a coffered ceiling fabricated by KWI Custom Cabinetry. The custom fireplace surround was designed by Quinn and the owners and fabricated by Atelier Jouvence.

BUILDING BLOCKS True luxury means using the best of the best, and materials are integral to this notion. Be it wood, stone, textiles or surfaces, each material determines how a home is lived in. High-tech surfaces in a kitchen provide easy functionality, while rich woods create a sense of warmth and luscious textiles add glamour. Thoughtful materials define a home, as these experts explain. Kathryn Quinn: In this particular project (shown), we wanted a living room that functioned as a library, a dining room, a music room and after-dinner conversation space. It is a grand space due to its height, size and location in the house, so we needed to bring warmth. Library bookcases, wood window seats and surrounds and a coffered ceiling—all made from custom-stained alderwood— lent that desired warmth. Bruce Fox: Any home benefits from quality materials and fine craftsmanship. While shopping with clients in London, we found inspiration in antique leather panels at Christopher Hodsoll’s shop. Wanting to incorporate the idea, Hodsoll led us to an artist specializing in gilding, painting and embossing leather. Collaborating with such a gifted craftsman to create a set of exquisite custom panels was an incredible experience.

Michael Abrams: I feel that the improvement in solid surface materials and porcelain tile has been amazing over the years—it’s almost impossible to tell what is natural and what is manmade. I am also using more texture on countertops versus a polished finish; stone countertops are now offered in honed, leather and textured finishes. Chip von Weise: Materials are an essential part of architecture. Used thoughtfully, they generate the expression of a building or a space. If we do our job well, they are integral to the construction and delineation of the room or building, not just added onto it. Because of its complexity, one material we’re repeatedly drawn to is glass. It can be transparent, translucent, opaque and reflective depending on its context and light conditions.

For the renovation and addition to this North Shore home, architect Austin DePree chose to take advantage of the views. “I wanted to introduce as much glass as possible and bring the surrounding ravine environment into the living spaces,” he says.

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, envisioning 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.

Did the owners request anything in particular? Our clients, who had been spending summers here on Green Lake in Wisconsin for years and finally decided to invest in a legacy home of their own, were open to seeing something different. The exterior palette comprises vernacular materials, local limestone, cedar siding and a standing-seam roof often used in clean, contemporary style. The interior is a modern open plan that easily welcomes all-size gatherings. Tell us about the biggest challenge you faced with this structure. The house sits on wetlands, so we had to design it so the wetlands were undisturbed. How about your favorite part of the project? My clients are always my favorite part of a project! Designwise, my favorite aspect of this one is the bridge that runs from one end to the other on the second floor. It is a tantalizing walk where you catch glimpses of the lake and the surrounding landscape and can chat with friends and family sitting below. What made this project different from other ones? The site was very unique, and it was our first project on Green Lake, so it was fun to get to know this very beautiful part of Wisconsin.

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON ARCHITECTURE 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.

Architect Peter Nicholas’ clients knew what they wanted in their Bucktown home: a contemporary design with an open floor plan and large outdoor spaces. Nicholas designed a streamlined steel-frame structure anchored around a swimming pool courtyard. “They wanted light, space and openness,” he says. “And I think the way you achieve that is with a very contemporary envelope.”

With the ultimate goal of transforming a dimly lit log cabin on Lake Michigan into a light-filled retreat, home builder Oyvind Solvang used materials like whitewashedoak log end-grain cuts to create an airy atmosphere in the great room. Because the room serves as the central gathering place for family and friends, Solvang expanded it by 6 feet.

Open spaces were a key design element in designer Erik W. Kolacz and his partner’s home in Bucktown’s The Montgomery. A rift-cut oak, steel and glass staircase adds to this sense of airiness while also injecting an industrial edge that references Chicago’s manufacturing history.

When a couple decided to embrace their contemporary side, they turned to the architectural team of John Vinci, Philip Hamp and Daniel Roush. The trio transformed a turn-of-the-19th-century dairy barn in Lincoln Park into a modern home, designing simple cubic forms around a courtyard that forms a light well that naturally illuminates the interiors.

MAKING SPACE

Great architecture stems from an intimate knowledge of not just what clients want but also the site itself. Understanding the surrounding environment serves as a basis to creating a home that showcases views, receives maximum sunlight and has a natural flow throughout. These experts explain more.

Jeffry Harting: What makes our profession so exciting is being able to work in different vernaculars. It’s like being in the art room and having the options to paint in oil, acrylics, pencil or charcoal and create abstract or still life. It starts with a site analysis, and from there the space evolves. It’s a linear progression of connections from room to room. Thomas Shafer: It’s important to understand how a client envisions using their land. Topography plays such a significant role in the siting of a house, whether it’s a flat site in the suburbs where you really don’t want to have your neighbors peeking

in your windows, a house on Lake Michigan where the panoramic views are nothing short of spectacular or a ravine property that may be all about the birds, deer and fall foliage.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Jeffry Harting, Thomas Shafer, Jim Fraerman

Jim Fraerman: Style has an influence but is not the driving force behind our work. Whether modern or traditionally leaning, our homes are characterized by an abundance of natural light, clean lines and open, flowing floor plans that meld exterior vistas with interior spaces. Above all, we are seeking to shape houses with comfort and scale in mind that will stand the test of time. LUXESOURCE.COM / 249

Living Spaces Interior designers James Dolenc and Thomas Riker worked with industry colleague Stephen Honeywell on his River North loft to create a home that put his art on full display. The designers first stripped sheetrock from walls surrounding the stairwell, revealing raw concrete underneath. “Then Stephen hung this 10-by-16-foot resin painting with crazy colors against the concrete wall in the dining room,” Riker says. “It looks amazing.”

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 space that’s both relaxing and inviting for family members and guests alike.

CREATING THE MOOD

There are so many integral factors that go into a living space. Materials, color and furniture are a just a few necessities that define a place for gathering. Creating an ideal reflection of a client is about finding that perfect balance, and we turned to the following design pros for their thoughts on how to put it all together. Eric R. Keune: I inherited from my late father both an appreciation for and a physical collection of classic midcentury furniture. For the design of my own house (left), I was able to create an appropriate setting for these pieces alongside a wall of “design-fetish objects” and a substantial library of art and architectural books, with the intention of showcasing each in a thoughtful and purposeful manner.

KEUNE ROOM PHOTO: STEVE HALL. KEUNE HEADSHOT: JILL PAIDER. DEL PIERO HEADSHOT: JANET MESIC MACKIE.

Michael Del Piero: The success of a design is determined by its ability to elicit the intended mood. Each element is selected in consideration of the desired ambience. Gathering information about the clients’ lifestyle and how they will use the space is the first step. Our inspiration is based on that foundation. I feel or “see” an overall look for the home and then zero in on the details. Tracy Hickman: Often, the aesthetic gets a kickstart from the architecture of the space. Mood starts with the floor plan—formal or informal—and fabrics, shapes and placement of the furniture follow suit. We use textural fabrics with subtle color changes to build up interest. Lighting and color are probably the most important elements in creating mood in a space. Frank Ponterio: For living spaces, I like layers of color in the same hue for the room’s foundation, relying on scale and texture for balance—and for addressing the tactile senses. In my designs, color comes in the form of smaller pieces of furniture and fabrics as well as the artwork and accessories. That being said, we’ve worked on many projects with loads of rich color on every surface. The key ingredients are one-part luxury, one-part comfort and tons of interest. Add fun to taste.

When a North Shore couple approached interior designers Arlene Semel and Brian Snow for a rebuild, they desired a prolific use of wood, connections to the outdoors and Asian-inflected furnishings. In the family and dining rooms, these requests were met with a French Renaissance trestle table, circa-1780s Windsor armchairs, an antique wool rug and a Japanese screen.

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.


BRIAN SNOW

Interior Designer

Describe the first step in your design process. Even if existing pieces are part of the project, we always begin as if we’re given a blank canvas, and how the room will be used is a big part of the planning. Once we know we’re in the right direction, then we start to fill everything in. Every item has to be carefully considered. What’s your point of inspiration? It varies from project to project. Sometimes it starts with an existing piece of furniture or a rug. For this room, the gorgeous table in the middle was an early find and everything fell into place from there. Name the most important aspect of a living space. That it is comfortable and the homeowners feel at ease there. For this project, the clients were empty nesters who wanted a place where they could still entertain their children and grandchildren.

Outdoor PHOTO: NICK JOHNSON.

Whether your home sits upon an expansive waterfront lot or offers just a taste of the outdoors via a sky-high terrace, there’s no wrong way to enjoy a bit of fresh air, so long as you’re doing it in style. Outdoor spaces represent an extension of a residence’s interior and a homeowner’s personal aesthetic, and as such they should be approached with just as much care and attention to detail. What do you envision for the ideal sanctuary in the sun? Regardless of size, the opportunities are nearly endless—from a cozy gathering spot with an electric fireplace or fire pit to a water-lover’s paradise with an infinity pool or elements like a fountain and a soaking tub. Furniture pieces for alfresco dining and lounging are a must, while manicured landscaping with the perfect plants sets the overall tone. Here, experts offer their tips for designing your own great outdoors.

When Paul Berlin approached architect Ron Vari about building his Noble Square home, he already had a concept in mind: an L-shaped house that wrapped around a pool. He also had every detail he wanted to use mapped out. Sunset Pools & Spas built the pool and hot tub, while Spiegelberg Landscape Design added color to the space.


RYAN KETTELKAMP Landscape Architect

Tell us about the clients’ vision for the outdoor space of this house. This home is situated on a corner lot across from a public park, so they needed the back courtyard garden to feel like an oasis. Sitting here, they’re hardly aware that they aren’t at a summer house in Michigan. How does the architecture of a home relate to its landscaping? It’s a significant source of inspiration, as are the site and client. This home, being across from Lake Michigan, told us we wanted a beachy feel, and the client wanted a look that wasn’t overly manicured. For us, the home’s architecture was all about the bold textures of the Shingle style. What’s special about the landscaping here? We are lucky in Chicago in that we get four distinct seasons, and the garden gets to “change its clothes” four times a year. Our winter look, for instance, is dependent on texture and contrast. Evergreens contrasted with grasses and deciduous plants with strong sculptural forms are important when the plants are bare for five months.

For the design of a lakeside home in Michigan, architect Steve Rugo took inspiration from Eliel Saarinen and Frank Lloyd Wright. This influence continued to the cedar-clad and glass-walled boathouse. It is reached from the main house by sections of stairs separated by landings, where guests can perch on benches made from trees felled during construction.

In this family home inspired by English manor houses, designer Richar incorporated rich colors and woods, creating a smooth transition to the outdoors for landscape architect Lisa Jaffe to work with.

ENGAGING THE ENVIRONMENT

Great outdoor design is about several things: understanding the environment, respecting the architecture and interiors, and knowing how the clients will use the space. The popularity of transitional areas that merge the indoors and outdoors means now, more than ever, all members of the design team need to work together to create the ideal outdoor space. These experts explain why. Lisa Jaffe: My goal is always to make the clients’ vision the best it can be. This house (top) was designed to evoke the feeling of an English manor house. The pergola actually helps to transition from the large scale of the home out to the openness of the surrounding property. A series of outdoor rooms were created within the formal gardens that focused the visitors’ view and created a narrative as one experiences the outdoor space. Frank Mariani Jr.: The plantings we use for a given site are determined by some key factors: the architectural style of the home; the overall site itself in regard to exposure, grade and other natural aspects; and—of course—the preferences of the client. Many homes now extend and interact with the landscape design and include additional outdoor “rooms” that feature outdoor kitchens, dining areas and fireplaces that make integrating the overall design more important than ever. Craig Bergmann: I decide on the plant collection in the landscape design based on what I think the client will like

and, more importantly, what kind of effort will be made toward the survival of the plantings. We always provide structure in our gardens with hardy, woody and herbaceous plants. If you look at what grows naturally on the outskirts of Chicago, you’ll see a lot of strong prairie plants that hold up to winter. But we always incorporate evergreens, even though they’re not all native. We don’t entirely follow the native plant mantra, as we have to be sympathetic to people’s wishes and styles. Steve Kadlec: Outdoor living spaces function much like interiors, and consideration for the appropriate layout and furnishings is vital to the overall design. The most important element is the natural setting and how landscaping helps shape the space through surfaces, textures and colors. The furnishings of an outdoor space should relate to the spirit of the landscape and can be a departure from the interior spaces. It is important, however, to understand how an outdoor space is viewed from the inside as part of the overall interior design of the home. LUXESOURCE.COM / 265

One change led to another for the renovation of this lakeside home, which the owners purchased so their family could embrace the outdoors. “Once we realized the magnitude of the changes, we recognized it would be better from both a structural and an aesthetic standpoint to reclad the painted-white common brick façade with a higher quality and better-looking face brick,” says architect Scott Javore.

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.
