“As an architect, I enjoy working with a builder who brings our drawings to life with the same attention to detail and quality workmanship we demand in our own firm. I am very impressed with their devotion to excellence and the timeliness in which they construct their homes. With Faulkner Perrin, we have built homes in a variety of design aesthetics, exceeding the expectations of discerning clients who are looking to create a clean, transitional and classic home.” — David Stocker Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects

I’ve always felt that summer is the season when creative pursuits are ripest to blossom. It may seem counterintuitive that at a time of year when the pace slackens, a colliding of ideas would swell. Yet, it’s precisely the mind-wandering lazy days of summer, when many of us are traveling to far-flung destinations or simply puttering around in the garden on a “Summer Friday,” that the path to inspiration clears. An aha moment can lead you anywhere— hopefully, on a journey of new surroundings and experiences: from a fresh coat of paint on your living room walls to an impromptu dinner party under the stars. Creativity is a spark, best ignited with a large dose of passion, a slice of relaxation and a bit of imagination. This summer, be open to what’s new and refreshing. Hover through these days with your antennae up… sense what is possible. Let this issue, dedicated to exploring international design, be the trigger that kicks it all off.

Global Designer Collaborations that Re-imagine the Bath Space How one feels at home, personal wellness and the enjoyment of well-living are qualities that resonate more than ever today with consumers and have become must-have requirements for architects and designers when creating residential projects. As the place where the daily ritual begins and ends, the bathroom environment needs to evolve to reflect these desires. Progressive brands are thinking “outside the bath” and saying goodbye to mundane bath layouts, typical fixtures and homogenized accessories. As companies look to set themselves apart from the pack, more are reinventing the bath space by infusing it with highend European architecture and design. Rather than stick to their normal team of designers, these companies are seeking out talent known for their work in other fields to create products unlike any seen before. These revelatory collaborations tap into the designers’ unique perspectives, resulting in visionary products that go beyond the typical bathroom fare – and capture the creative spirit of imagination, innovation and art with a refined European edge. Ronbow® is one of these companies creating a difference in bath design. The new Signature Series by Ronbow features over 200 new products and 11 new collections of globally trendsetting bathroom products by nine of the world’s most distinguished artists and designers from six European countries. Known for their contributions to iconic brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vuitton, Audi, Apple and a firm recognized for several exotic Italian automobiles, these designers – each with their own unique sensibility – entrusted their prestigious reputations to Ronbow because of their ability to deliver on their requirements and ideas with innovation, great design and outstanding quality. By working with designers who may see the bathroom space and application in a different way than typical, Ronbow has created next-generation bathroom furniture and complete suites integrating a creative edge, convenient and smart innovations such as LED touch-sensitive mirrors, USB ports and plug outlets, refined accessories and unique material combinations.
VENTO - PININFARINA A 360° design house of international repute and a world-renowned symbol of Italian style, Pininfarina is arguably the most recognized brand in Italian sports car design and has designed in a multitude of other fields. The VENTO collection by Ronbow translates the Pininfarina identity into a variety of versatile and functional bathroom pieces for the design-minded consumer. The VENTO collection, or “wind” collection in Italian, emphasizes an elegant, sleek and innovative sinktop design inspired by perfectly smooth snowdrifts carved by fast, strong winds. Unmistakably, the designer’s mastery of Italian grace, sex appeal and flair are all conveyed in the sinktop.
WATERSPACE - JOAN LAO Based in Barcelona, Spain, Joan Lao is an international design icon recognized for his work in product, interior and architectural design. Since opening his design studio in 1985, he has participated in more than 3,000 interior design projects for clients who appreciate his unique design stamp across furniture, lamps and objects – one of balance and peace. Symbolizing soothing, flowing water, the WATERSPACE collection integrates natural tones, undulating textured wood finishes and a curved design theme for a complete sense of balance and tranquility.
PEBBLE - ORA ITO Ora Ito became globally famous in the ’90s by hijacking symbolic brands such as Apple and NIKE and presenting them with virtual visionary 3D products via media. He is ranked among the top 40 most influential people in the world of design and has collaborated with clients including Heineken, Toyota, Adidas and Pathé, to produce award-winning designs. Inspired by pebbles on the seashore, the PEBBLE collection represents Ito’s idea of “Simplexity” – art to give an object with complex functions a visible simplicity. The glossy white wood finish acts as a canvas to best showcase the unique, organic, “pebble-like” shapes and curves, bringing natural elegance and harmony to the contemporary bath.
Thanks to these visionary designer pairings, Ronbow has recontextualized a new world beyond the bath.
NOCE - MATTEO THUN Designed by revered Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun, who is well-known for his design work with Swatch, and Antonio Rodriquez, the NOCE collection was born to combine urban and contemporary classic styles. The NOCE collection is reminiscent of iconic 1960s vintage style with a modern, functional twist, including LEDs and integrated electrical outlets and USB ports. The suite includes mid-century modern inspired vanities along with optional hutches and more – resulting in a space that is compact but comfortable.
WIDE - PHOENIX DESIGN Phoenix Design is regarded as the leading independent studio worldwide for product and interface design, with clients including Audi, Duravit, Hansgrohe, Samsung and ZEISS. Recognized for its revolutionary design achievements, Phoenix Design has received more than 700 design awards since its foundation in 1987 and has collaborated with Ronbow for two new collections. Named for its vertically “stacked,” asymmetrical appearance, the STACK collection is built from layers of contrasting materials, colors, shapes and orientations – creating a unique, multi-functional living space. Inspired by Bauhaus design theory and style, the WIDE collection celebrates the elegance of pure, clean design and harmonious color combinations.

Welcome to the July/August issue of Luxe Interiors + Design! This April, we joined the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art to sponsor its Garden Party, which began with a private tour of a home and garden. A panel discussion followed the tour and included the design professionals who worked on the project: architect William S. Briggs, builder Tom Black of Black Construction, interior designer Elaine Honea of Les Antiques and landscape architect and owner of Lambert’s Paul Fields. Then, in May, we joined the ASID Texas Chapter for two award events, the Designers’ Choice Awards and Design Ovation. These awards celebrated our local interior designers as well as the vendors who source the highest quality products for them. The events took place at the Dallas Market Center, where guests enjoyed dinner, an awards ceremony and dancing. Enjoy the issue!

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
Photographer / Los Angeles
KIMBERLY OLSON Writer / San Francisco
Most memorable interview: I interviewed a couple who were high school sweethearts and had just built their Miami dream home. The design team created a space that was such a reflection of them, incorporating elements that evoked both their world travels and an indoor-outdoor feel, as well as adding a sound system for parties. The husband even designed some first-of-theirkind, remote-controlled gas lanterns, which are now on the market—a true passion project. What’s your design style? I like classic pieces with a sense of history, but I also appreciate clean lines without too much fussiness—and I’m definitely not someone to shy away from color. I have a tufted-velvet sofa in a lovely lime green. No regrets! Prized possessions: A gorgeous Tiffany-style stained glass lamp that my father made for me and an old doll that belonged to my grandmother, which my parents had restored as a birthday gift. I’d include my cat, Ariel, but she rules the roost, so she might object to being called a possession.
CYNTHIA LYNN Photographer / Chicago What type of design inspires you? I’m really fascinated with late19th-century architecture. However, my own personal taste is very modern. I just love when architects and designers marry the two. For example, when they choose to keep the façade of existing structures but completely modernize the living space, I think that’s just fantastic! Most interesting person you’ve ever met: My husband and I went truffle hunting in Alba, Italy, and met a truffle hunter and his dog, Gigi. He was absolutely fascinating—from the way he interacted with the dog to the history he upheld for the art of truffle hunting. It was as if he were a character written for a book. He also spoke very little English, so his enchanting personality transcended language barriers. It was one of my fondest memories, and I’m so grateful we were able to meet him. If I weren’t a photographer, I would… Run an animal rescue and rehabilitation center. I’m a huge animal person and have such a soft spot for dogs. I do what I can now by fostering, but I would love to do more someday.
JENNIFER SERGENT Writer / Washington, D.C. What do you find most enjoyable about design? I like that it’s so personal, like music. Designers can take the same fabrics and furniture (as musicians do with the same notes and scales) and combine them in limitless ways to express a point of view or mood. I see interior design as transformative for the psyche even more than for aesthetics. Prized possession: A chest my husband commissioned designer and furniture maker Caleb Woodard to make for me. The carved wood on the doors resembles woven ribbons. If money were no object, I would buy… A beach house in Fenwick Island, Delaware. I’ve vacationed there with my family since I was little, and it would be great to own something there.

Favorite Luxe shoot: A penthouse in San Francisco I photographed that had views of the Transamerica building, through the dining room window, and the Golden Gate Bridge, out the living room windows. It was great! What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? I like that there’s so much room these days for innovation and experimentation. The Internet has democratized a lot of the design world, so small firms making thoughtful pieces can thrive alongside huge companies. Most fascinating person you’ve ever met: I sat next to an army doctor on a flight out of Boise who was on his way to Liberia to head up Ebola treatment centers at the peak of the epidemic. He had so much life experience, compassion and courage, as well as epic patience, as I peppered him with questions for two hours. Top three things on your design wish list: I would love to own a heated outdoor bench from Galanter & Jones for chilly California evenings, artwork by Lauren Spencer King, and a custom quilt from Counterpane.

DRAWN TO SCALE
THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND THE BELOVED OUTDOOR FURNITURE BRAND JANUS ET CIE, JANICE FELDMAN DESIGNS HER OWN LEGACY THANKS TO A COUPLE OF MUCH-BUZZED-ABOUT NEW PARTNERSHIPS.
Share your recent decision to join Haworth and the Poltrona Frau Group. Well, it’s been a journey, but I wanted very much to ensure the future of my business: that when I’ve retired, to that great drawing board in the sky, my life’s work will be cared for and regarded with admiration and respect, and that I’ll have created a good, safe place for the people who have helped me get to where I am. Poltrona Frau is a great bastion of luxury furniture, and they’re super-respectful of the autonomy of their individual brands, so I feel honored to be the little sister of their group. They’re going to help us grow globally much quicker than I could have as a standalone company.
Is there anything you’ll miss about going at it alone? Truly, I was never really “alone.” When I was a little girl, my mother always said, “You can do anything.” I’ve lived with that in my head and heart, and she helped and encouraged me every step of the way. The best part about being independent for so long was that I got to prove my mother right. I’ve always made decisions based on my own feelings and my own definitions of what’s good or bad, so it might be challenging at first to be more collaborative and sensitive to other people’s visions, but Dario Rinero, Poltrona’s CEO, is a wonderful leader, and I’m confident we have a lot to learn from each other.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA
What led you to tap Piero Lissoni to design an upcoming collection for Janus et Cie? I’ve been tracking him for a long time, and I just think everything he does is beautiful. He’s also a total character. Every time I look at Piero, I’m struck by his physicality: I want to draw him. He’s got this long, linear, Giacometti thing happening, and it’s in his drawings and product design, too. I trust the collection will be something very special and that it will be refined and long-lived—something where, 20 or 50 years from now, people will still say they want to buy pieces from the collaboration. How do you keep your creative mojo alive and well? I love to sketch. It helps me think—to take things out of my head and put them down on paper. I started drawing at a very young age, and I was hooked the moment I took my first art class. The instructor made us look at the model and draw without referencing the paper in front of us at all. It was kind of amazing to let your brain communicate directly with your fingers and the pen and to not be burdened by having to check in on yourself. It stuck with me. Today, I often keep a journal or a notepad when I travel; sometimes, I jot down ideas, and other times, I’ll paint a portrait or a chair—anything really. I’m extremely visual, and I edit the world in my own way every day.

GUIDE & SEEK
ANTIQUING IS ALL ABOUT THE THRILL OF THE HUNT, UNEARTHING DÉCOR RICHES THAT TAKE INTERIORS TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH PROVENANCE.
Antique neophytes and aficionados alike know that when it comes to seeking period pieces in Europe, the legendary Paris Flea Market is a beacon of uncovered treasures that is not to be missed. In any given direction of the décor haven, though, there is a bevy of insider-caliber antiques dealers and emporiums silently beckoning from the far corners of southern England, Holland, northern France and Belgium, where private residences (such as Axel Vervoordt’s storied castle) open their doors to welcome guests, by-appointment only, on the hunt for uncommon goods. Here, a collection of antique garden gnomes and neo-Gothic cathedral ceilings are as fair game as British Colonial case goods and Louis-era anything. What was once a sport for design-loving history buffs, and, let’s face it, your grandmother, is now much further reaching. “Antiques are being used more overall, but less in abundance,” notes Toma Clark Haines, CEO and founder of The Antiques Diva & Co., Europe’s largest network of antiques buying tours. “More people are seeking something authentic that their neighbor doesn’t have, including the younger generation. They are looking for experiences as unique as they are and want their homes to tell those stories through key pieces.” Haines, an American expat whose home base is in Berlin, offers a crucial piece of advice no matter how obscure or conventional your purchasing pursuits: “Buy with your heart. You may not know the difference between Louis XV and Louis XVI, but if you buy what you love, you can always learn about it later.” Taking her cue, we invite you to explore our robust list of must-shop European dealers and locales—we dare you to leave empty-handed.

Lorfords Antiques Tetbury, England
Reason to go: For argument’s sake, Lorfords Antiques in Tetbury, England, has the best inventory in all of the U.K. and Europe. According to Haines: “It’s like you’ve taken the Paris Flea Market and picked out the top 10 percent of its decorative items and put them in one unexpected location.” What you’ll find: Owners Toby Lorford and Lesley Ferguson converted two World War II-era aircraft hangars, which currently house the wares of 45 dealers. It’s truly a one-stop shop where time seems to stand still (though quickly ticks away) while visitors scour every alcove and leave feeling like family. Their selection runs the gamut, including standouts like a signed 18th-century Swedish Rococo tragsoffa, late 18th-century French limestone wellhead and a pair of circa-1970s Ingo Maurer spring lamps.
Paul De Grande Snellegem, Belgium
Reason to go: Paul De Grande’s personal collection of over 10,000 antiques is reason enough to make a stop in Snellegem, Belgium. The pieces are effortlessly on display in his own home: a glorious property that greets you with marble sculptures and bronze busts set atop fluted pedestals. Just when you think you’ve seen everything De Grande has to offer on the ground level of his castle, you descend into the basement to uncover a labyrinth of goods. What you’ll find: The discoveries are wide in range: Meandering through the castle unveils cast-iron lion and unicorn andirons from the 19th century mingling fluently with a decorative carousel duck poised beside an unusual 18th-century country French vaisselier, while inlaid Chinese chairs inset with marble plaques in the backrest join 17th-century Flemish tapestries and Dutch carved coconut flasks. And as if the options in De Grande’s residence weren’t sufficient, there are voluminous warehouses a quick car ride away with a dizzying assortment of 16th- to 19th-century cupboards, vitrines, commodes, bureaus and even a life-size patinated zinc camel.
Jean-Philippe Demeyer Knokke-Heist, Belgium Reason to go: Jean-Philippe Demeyer takes obvious chances with his antiques picks, but trust us, it’s all good. The spaces in his moatencircled castle, well, one is more lavish than the next, fashioned with a cocktail of textures,
Clockwise from top: Paul De Grande’s warehouse space is a trove of antique goods. A quiet moment at Bie Baert’s personal home. You’ll find elegant historical pieces next door to the beautiful JVR108 guesthouse in Antwerp. The personality-filled sitting room at Jean-Philippe Demeyer’s Belgian home.
colors and peculiarities that all add up to a somehow melodious visual feast. What you’ll find: It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what will be available at Demeyer’s home on any given weekend, as the designer and antiques enthusiast buys whatever strikes his fancy. Nothing is off-limits, as Demeyer isn’t tied to any of the fantastic specimens he owns; in fact, he welcomes change, and observes pieces coming and going as an opportunity to hunt down more precious décor gems.
Bie Baert Brecht, Belgium
Reason to go: Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll encounter a person and place that make you feel immediately at ease. Bie Baert is that person, and her charming cottage on the outskirts of Antwerp is that place. Like walking

into an old friend’s home (coffee and tea at the ready), Baert’s magnetic personality and collection will welcome you into her eccentric world, where a pair of distressed wooden penguins and a gilded papier-mâché boot holding an umbrella will leave you wondering why you didn’t already own such quirky things. What you’ll find: Antique garden gnomes, an anatomical model of a worker bee and a menagerie of wooden lay figures somehow seem obvious, filling every nook and cranny of Baert’s home. Your resting place for an espresso and a chat, a 14-foot-long table, made out of one solid piece of oak, is where you survey your surroundings and unexpectedly spot two perfectly worn red-leather Cassina chairs and a cheery bird-adorned plaster chandelier by Jacques Darbaud, circa 1990.
Reason to go: Antiquing through Belgium could take a few days, and Philip Ver Hoeye and Frederick Aers’ luxury three-bedroom guesthouse in Antwerp is unquestionably an ultrachic place to rest. The best part? Most of the furnishings throughout the fully renovated historical mansion are for sale, as are all the finds next door at their dedicated antiques shop. What you’ll find: The lovely hosts of JVR108 recently acquired all the contents of Belgium’s famous Chateau Rozenhout, which means you can own an iconic piece from one of the great houses of Europe. Other offerings include keenly curated British, Italian, Swedish and Asian antiques that exemplify the couple’s exceptional tastes.
Monique Relander Schoten, Belgium
Reason to go: From the looks of Monique Relander’s home, “edit, edit, edit” is her mantra. An impeccable assortment of antique and vintage furnishings, lighting, tabletop and décor beckon you to roam through every room, taking in the crystal chandeliers, velvet scallop-edged settees, and oil works by Belgian artist Smaël Laurent. What you’ll find: Newly upholstered midcentury Italian armchairs, Swedish loungers and Louis XV-style caned dining chairs abound. A zebra-hide rug might lead your eye into another room where a marble-topped gueridon table with gilded swan adornments holds a Maison Charles pineapple lamp. A peek into her country kitchen, complete with a bifocals-wearing boar head holding guard above the fireplace, may reveal a medley of vintage fruit-shaped ice buckets.
Anouk Beerents Amsterdam, Netherlands
Reason to go: If you’re ever faced with the arduous choice of how to spend an afternoon in Amsterdam, we’re about to make it easy for you: Make a point to see Anouk Beerents’ inconceivably magical mirror shop. Ornate gilded mirror after mirror hung on movable tracks will leave you intoxicated and enamored, as if you walked through the looking glass itself into a wonderland. What you’ll find: Beerents specializes in 18th- and 19th-century French gilded
mirrors, specifically Louis XIV, Régence, Louis XV and Louis XVI, all of which she sources herself. To preserve authenticity, Beerents conservatively restores them with old-world techniques.
Espace Nord Ouest Bondues, France
Reason to go: Two hours north of Paris, Espace Nord Ouest is quickly becoming the European source for antiques dealers in the states that focus on decorative eccentricities, as well as major fashion retailers looking to outfit their stores with unique curiosities. What you’ll find: Seventeen professional dealers over nearly 13,000 square feet offer a downright cool assortment of 17th- to 20th-century pieces, such as industrial and shop furniture, garden décor, architectural salvage, classic French seating and case pieces, and vintage midcentury lighting and furnishings.

A lavish robe shot through with silk. A vessel painstakingly engraved with precious metals. A portrait rendered in watercolor, ink and gold. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s recent exhibition “Court and Cosmos: The Great Age of the Seljuqs” showcases the artistic splendor that flourished during the reign of the Seljuqs, whose rule stretched across Western Asia from the 11th through the 13th centuries. In conjunction with the show, the museum’s store is introducing a line of modern-day heirlooms—ranging from glass objects and jewelry to ceramics and limited-edition rugs— that celebrate the dynamic legacy of the period. “It was evident that the pattern and color inherent in the original art still influences and inspires makers today,” says Susan Noonan, the museum’s general manager of buying and merchandising.
WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY LISA BINGHAM DEWART
Among those tapped to create the new interpretations of these centuries-old designs was Barbara Barran of Classic Rug Collection in New York. “The colors are gorgeous, and I love the geometry,” Barran says of the region’s art. It wouldn’t be the first time Barran, who has traveled frequently to the Middle East, has transformed work from the area into carpets. “I’ve designed rugs based on Iznik tiles and translated them into 300-knot silk,” she notes. “The Seljuq pieces are from a slightly earlier time period, but there was something about them that was very familiar.” The source materials selected as a jumpingoff point for the rugs immediately resonated with Barran, easily informing her design direction. For example, after seeing the stone-paste mina’i bowl with an abstract pattern from some 900
years ago in the museum’s collection—which served as the foundation for the Mina’i Good Wishes rug (above)—Barran “knew it should be a wool flat weave because it needed to have the earthiness of the original bowl,” adding, “The colors were lovely and the repetition of the pattern had a gorgeous rhythm.” The other source—another mina’i piece featuring a zigzag pattern and gilding—suggested a more polished take. Offered in wool with silk accents, the Mina’i Zigzag rug hews closely to the spirit of its namesake but is imbued with a modern feel. While nearly a millennium separates Barran from the original creators, she still feels a sense of connection. “There’s a liveliness to the art from this period,” Barran explains. “You look at it and find yourself picturing the people who created it. To me, they’re not strangers.”

UPWARDLY MOBILE THE WORLD’S FOREMOST VENUE FOR LUXURY FURNISHINGS AND ACCESSORIES—SALONE DEL MOBILE—CAPTURES THE INHERENT COOL OF THE ITALIAN CITY THAT IT CALLS HOME.
Among Salone del Mobile’s many new introductions were (clockwise from top) Natuzzi’s Dorian line, Flou’s Softwing bed—an update on the company’s famous Nathalie—and Poltrona Frau’s Neri&Hu-designed mirror.
It is, as it turns out, nearly impossible to order an icy glass of water in Milan—room-temperature naturale being completely de rigueur; instead, the cosmopolitan Italian city concerns itself with a different kind of cool. Here, for one week each spring, its fashionable citizens (think plenty of black, linen, leather and painstakingly rolled-up jeans and cigarette pants) join an international conglomerate of visiting design aficionados, trading in their impossibly stylish heels and wingtips for sensible footwear all in the name of design as Salone del Mobile rolls into town. The floors of Salone, the world’s largest furnishings fair, which inhabits the sprawling halls of the Milano Congressi convention center designed by Mario Bellini, are meant to be thoroughly explored, pavement pounded—each corner of its nearly 600,000 square feet filled with furniture and accessories from the world’s preeminent creative minds. And while the talent hails from all over Europe and beyond, there’s a distinctly Italian flavor to the proceedings: a flair for the dramatic and a gravitas provided by the beautifully preserved centuries-old buildings that host the design events within the city, both in the showrooms of established Italian brands and in a bevy of what we affectionately referred to as “palazzo pop-ups” during our visit. Kohler’s showing of its new line of fixtures in collaboration with the French designer Jean-Louis Deniot, for example, takes place at the tony Palazzo Durini di Monza, a 17th-century mansion designed by the Baroque architect Francesco Maria Richini—a juxtaposition of modern chrome and porcelain against ancient stone and Renaissance art. In Bottega Veneta’s dedicated home boutique, too, the venerable fashion house-turned-luxury furniture brand pairs the sleek lines of its übermodern living, dining, office and bedroom

offerings with 18th-century frescoes by artists like Carlo Innocenzo Carlone and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. The result is startling but also, somehow, entirely inevitable thanks to the attention to detail that is paramount in Italian design. And it’s everywhere. For celebrated kitchen brands like Varenna by Poliform and Boffi, each cabinet front and drawer is a work of art—every element carefully veneered, laser-cut and dovetailed together like so many puzzle pieces. At Flou, a variety of new introductions are a pitch-perfect complement to the brand’s longtime bestsellers, like the Nathalie—arguably the industry’s first upholstered bed, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1978, which still looks utterly timeless with its tireless slipcovered reinventions. Longtime power players B&B Italia and Flexform, too, stay nimble by introducing covetable new pieces— like the Do-Maru armchair by Doshi Levien and a brand-new line of seating by Daniel Libeskind, respectively—to a roster of old favorites. On once-barren concrete plots in the middle of the convention center, each brand transforms its booth into a mini home away from home—each one different and dazzling but many embracing a rich, Italian minimalism as a common theme along with another unifier, this one a bit more material (literally): While structured Italian footwear is more or less on hiatus for the week, leather pervades everything else. It’s in the thick straps of the striking, buckled light pendants and impressive Neri&Hu-designed mirror and valet stand at Poltrona Frau; it’s used in a hundred different ways on the supple cushions of Natuzzi and Molteni&C’s many beautiful sofas and chairs; it’s inset into the ultimate desk for movers and shakers at Promemoria; and it’s woven and stitched with remarkable precision across a variety of Hermès home offerings. For all its eye candy and endless inspiration, the true beauty of Salone is in the escape it provides: Here, there are a multitude of worlds rapidly constructed, but with great care, that you can imagine yourself in, with thousands of new products with which to redesign the perfect room in your mind, and not a single person to pass judgment. They’re design lovers, after all, and they’re likely doing the exact same thing, and we’re happy to toast to that—the water may be warm, but the Prosecco is ice cold.

@rachelhorninteriors WHO: Austin-based interior designer Rachel Horn came to Texas four years ago from Los Angeles. She brings a deep love of and appreciation for the Spanish Colonial architecture and design sense of her native San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, to her eponymous interiors firm. WHAT: Along with behind-the-scenes shots of her layered interiors, sun-laden beaches, scenic spice markets, brightly hued textiles and intricate pattern work often appear in Horn’s collected feed, as she now splits her time between Austin and Mexico. WHY: Horn’s innate citizen-of-the-world mentality extends to her well-traveled Instagram shots. Follow her to find inspiration in a sense of place; and prepare to discover the often-forgotten beauty that surrounds us. IN HER WORDS: “My style is all about where I’ve been, where I’m going and who I am as a result. It comes from places rich in history and is influenced by many cultures—Spain, Morocco and Mexico are some of the favorites. My design aesthetic is based in beauty.”

Happening in Houston: I see a shift toward transitional interiors. For a while, almost everything here had a French Provincial leaning. There is also a significant use of steel-framed windows and doors, which really transform a house. Neighborhood you’re frequenting: Memorial. I have a good number of clients in this area, and it’s been an 112 / LUXESOURCE.COM
absolute pleasure to watch how rapidly the neighborhood is developing. Sightseeing for the design-obsessed: First, take in local favorites, such as the Rothko Chapel and The Menil Collection. Then, visit the city’s best art galleries, like Dimmitt Contemporary Art, Laura Rathe Fine Art and Barbara Davis Gallery. For shopping, hit Kuhl-Linscomb, Longoria Collection and Thompson + Hanson.
When did you open? We are family-owned and have been in Dallas since 1974. Describe the concept. We import unique, one-of-a-kind pieces from India, Africa and Afghanistan, specializing in architectural finds. When an old palace or a mansion is torn down in India, we seek to acquire the beautiful elements, such as the columns, carved ceilings and grand doors. Tell us about the evolution of your offerings. Antique Indian furniture and architectural artifacts are becoming harder and harder to find. To adapt, we’ve done two things: We’ve begun to take older pieces and add our own unique details, and we have started designing original furnishings. What makes Art of Old India different? Every piece we sell here has been carefully handmade by a skilled artisan. The inlay work and carving is so intricate that it takes hours to complete a single item. Most of our pieces are one-offs, so customers enjoy knowing that they won’t end up with the same things as their friends. Any news? This summer, we will have a specially curated display inspired by the Game of Thrones series. Clients will be able to see furnishings that reflect the different cities and characters portrayed on the show. artofoldindia.com WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

If anyone is “having a moment,” it’s designer Katie Scott, who in addition to being the founder of a thriving interiors practice also counts herself a successful jewelry designer and author. “I go beyond the surface of simply creating luxury,” says Scott. “It is my desire to create interiors that are soul deep— spaces that are rich in feelings and strike emotions.” We sat down with the triple threat to get her take on what’s new and now in Houston. katiescottdesign.com What’s intriguing you in design now? The growing number of savvy designers. I’m intrigued with talent, and I love watching people pursue their passions. My “ones to watch” are Paloma Contreras, Marie Flanigan and Creative Tonic.

ERIN AND JP HOSSLEY: NEIGHBORHOOD Located in the heart of Dallas’ Bishop Arts District, alongside some of the area’s locally loved gems—like We are 1976 and Dolly Python— sits the home shop, Neighborhood. Known for its extensive collection of home furnishings and accessories made by Dallas-area artisans, the edited shop reads more as a local art gallery than a home décor store. Neighborhood was founded in 2012 by husband-and-wife duo, Erin and JP Hossley, to fill a void. “We felt that Dallas needed more local culture to be represented,” explains Erin, “a place where young collectors and professionals could shop and celebrate the arts, and take home one-of-a-kind products.” Their often quirky and carefully curated collection includes local artists and makers such as F. is for Frank, Tim Kerr and Springer Design Studio, and such national mainstays as IMM Living and Gus Modern. Read below for the pair’s favorite spots to frequent for a dose of design in Dallas. neighborhood-store-design-bar.myshopify.com
10 a.m. Head to the Bishop Arts District and grab a bite at either El Jordan Cafe—for its chorizo, huevos y queso burrito—or Oddfellows for red velvet pancakes and eggs benedict. 11 a.m. Walk off that breakfast with a tour around the shops in Bishop Arts. Hit up We are 1976, Dirt Flowers and M’Antiques, and then stop into Neighborhood and say hello. We will be sure to fill you in on any other daily Dallas happenings.
3 p.m. While in the Dallas Arts District, stroll through the Dallas Museum of Art or the Nasher Sculpture Center to see their latest exhibits. Also, take a minute to admire the Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning works of Philip Johnson, I.M. Pei, Thom Mayne, Rem Koolhaas and Renzo Piano. 4 p.m. After all of your highbrow experiences, head north to Dolly Python for a one-of-a-kind new addition to your vintage wardrobe, an inappropriate cross-stitch, or that white elephant gift that will make you the talk of the party.
1 p.m. Locals do it best, so drive down Davis Street and make your way to Spinster Records for some tasty new vinyl; hit up Joy Macarons for a sweet treat; and get artisanal with kitchen goods from Set + Co.
5:30 p.m. Hustle back to Bishop Arts to be at the head of the line at Lucia for their first dinner seating. The normal two-month waiting list can be bypassed by the available first-come, firstserved seating at their four bar seats. If you don’t get there in time, no worries! Hit up one of the many other amazing and unique Bishop Arts dining destinations, such as Boulevardier, Bolsa, Stock & Barrel or Mesa.
2 p.m. Book it downtown to the Arts District and grab lunch from a food truck at Klyde Warren Park.

Or, if you'd rather, head up the street to The Kessler Theater to experience the greatest music venue in all of Dallas. 12 a.m. For the real late-nighters, stop into Nova. Kick back and enjoy drinks until last call.

Located on a quintessentially European cobblestone street in the 13th Arrondissement, the hotel boasts ample boutique qualities and unexpected details. Here, we take our lead from the hotel’s private and public spaces— outfitted with plush, organic textiles and antique metalwork throughout—for a collection of items, like luxe linens from Cultiver in dreamy, subdued hues and a delicate brass bowl by Blackman Cruz, that capture the essence of cool thanks to a little je ne sais quoi.

PARADISE FOUND SALA AYUTTHAYA: AYUTTHAYA, THAILAND
Renowned for its opulent temples and lavish sacred spaces, Thailand takes great pride in its legendary history of architecture and design. Located directly across from the Wat Phutthai Sawan temple, built in 1353 A.D. by the first monarch of the area, Sala Ayutthaya was conceived with both its namesake’s long architectural past in mind and a focus on reinvented minimalist Thai design.

At first sight: Christophe Delcourt’s piece is inspired by nature but executed in a distinctly modern way. France is all about beauty and tradition: The country has a vast design history that creatives, especially in the culinary and furniture worlds, must honor and interpret. But above all… You can always count on a French designer to revel in beauty. A statement piece… Stands out on its own, has a story and evokes conversation. To me, this entire piece reads as a sculpture: The table represents a great balance of form and function. It’s hard to achieve that balance, but you don’t get there without taking a risk. Lasting impression: Angular, dynamic, artistic, structural, modern.

At first sight: I’m struck by Peca’s clever and restrained use of natural materials. It’s such an artful mélange of brass, stone and marble. The juxtapositions within the composition… Are alluring and calming all at once; the soft textiles of the background beautifully foil the natural, hard materials used for the tray and candleholders. I’d love to see… The candleholders reimagined as a giant abacus. When scouting product for my clients… These are the types of pieces I like to introduce. It’s so important to be aware of the artisanal hand behind the designs you bring into someone’s home. Boundaries in design… Exist to be pushed: No risk, no reward.

BALDWIN HARDWARE 2
Think about your design aesthetic and finishes—what kind of hardware you will need. Design around that.
It’s not as bold as one might think to compare fashion to decorative hardware. It enhances, adorns and beautifies while fulfilling utilitarian needs—and it is every bit subject to fads and design movements. Baldwin Hardware of Lake Forest, California, is a pioneer in the realm of hardware, crafting art-worthy, design-forward pieces that successfully defy trends. “We prefer to think of Baldwin as a fashion statement for the home: part of your design aesthetic,” says Baldwin Hardware Senior Brand Manager PJ Rosch. “Baldwin is couture for the door.” Celebrating its 70th year as an industry leader, Baldwin Hardware distinguishes itself from its contemporaries with an unwavering dedication to quality materials and design, not to mention seemingly infinite styles and finishes from which to choose. “We love creating inspirational design through the depth and breadth of our products and finishes,” Rosch says. Designers for the decorative hardware firm are embracing midcentury modern aesthetics and are also seeing a greater demand for black metals. “We are loving midcentury modern right now. It’s a great nod to the past, but with an updated style,” she says. “Also, black metals are all the rage now, but brass and warm, gold tones continue to gain popularity.”
1. Baldwin® Hardware’s newest additions to its best-selling Reserve portfolio are the La Jolla and Santa Cruz handlesets, Crystal knob and Contemporary knob. baldwinhardware.com 2. The Contemporary knob features a round shape contrasted with flat edges. The knob will pair nicely with products available in the Reserve collection. 3. The square full-escutcheon Santa Cruz handleset plays to a contemporary audience with a long profile.
INSIGHT, TIPS AND MORE FROM BALDWIN HARDWARE Style genre of note: Midcentury modern. Materials and finishes: Black metals, brass and warm, gold tones. A quick and chic kitchen update: New cabinet knobs and pulls are an easy, cost-effective way to refresh a kitchen. The new bathroom: Means having more living space. Chairs, flowers and a homey vibe are in—countertop clutter is out. Trends and you: Don’t worry about trends. Be sure to infuse your own personal style into your space and make it truly yours. A new era of opulence: 2016 is about luxury and options. People want well-crafted, timeless pieces that are high quality, complemented by artisanal pieces.

Q+A WITH KITCHEN MARKETEERS CHUCK HUEBNER AND MICHAEL WEST OF DACOR
Founded in 1965, Dacor is a leading manufacturer of ultra-premium kitchen appliances. Designed and built in California, Dacor’s cooking appliances integrate function, technology and style to create intuitive products that reflect the lifestyle and needs of the passionate home chef. Dacor is also the first and only kitchen appliance brand to be tested and recommended by the master chefs of Le Cordon Bleu. Dacor manufactures a full suite of award-winning appliances, including ranges, cooktops, wall ovens, refrigeration, ventilation and wine preservation. Family-owned for more than 50 years, the company is responsible for many of the innovations that have improved the way people cook in the modern kitchen. Dacor created the 30-inch wall oven category, was the first to integrate an Android™powered tablet in ranges and ovens for the connected kitchen, and made the first continuous platform grates on cooktops, among other advances.
What are the top style and material trends for 2016? In kitchen appliances, stainless steel remains the most popular finish. Designers are gravitating toward color to offer their clients something different and fresh. Some are using color to solve problems, such as matching new appliances to established kitchen color schemes they want to keep. What should every well-designed kitchen have? Appliances placed to keep eye contact with your family or guests make for a better interactive experience. Placing a cooktop in the kitchen island with a motorized downdraft is a great way to not have your back to them, as is common with the conventional placement of ranges/cooktops against a wall. What new innovations should consumers keep an eye out for? Connected kitchen appliances that add freedom to your lifestyle, such as the capability to preheat your oven remotely using your phone, and text you when your food is ready.
Connected kitchen appliances add freedom to your lifestyle.

Ergonomics play a large role in the design of a high-end kitchen, and it is highly suggested that most cabinetry pull out or come toward you instead of looking out of reach.
Equal parts form and function, Eggersmann’s cabinetry delivers beautiful and useful organizational solutions to the modern home dweller. The company, drawing from more than 100 years of innovation, trial and achievement, is a driving force behind the concealed kitchen—a design movement that gives way to gallery-like spaces in the kitchen, and the cabinetry is art. Using earthborn, organic materials such as raw wood and concrete, Eggersmann’s ultra sleek and clean-lined cabinetry reimagines modernity in a warm and inviting fashion. “We start with the most intrinsically raw materials available, including woods, metals and glass,” shares Eggersmann USA CEO Michael Soltoff. “With these materials used in various textures, colors and sheens, we constantly push the limits of the basic core components.” The Eggersmann design foundation is built on key Bauhaus architectural characteristics—flat, smooth surfaces, cubic shapes, neutral colors and open floor plans (fundamentally pure and resounding in utility)—and is distinguished by technological feats in cabinetry composition and ergonomics, such as its electric mechanisms, custom storage, handle integration and exotic veneers. “The wide availability of parts, components, hardware and materials across the world has caused a demand and push for incredible leaps and bounds in innovation of product,” Soltoff says. “As electronic technology becomes more compact and lightweight, we see an increase in automation in our products, and it has become more of an integrated component of lifestyle, rather than just a cabinet or case good.”
1. Gray matte lacquer and veneer fineline grigio with silver moon quartzite worktop. 2. White and dark gray matte laminate and 11mm Silvertouch worktop with a custom finish WALL track system. 3. White matte laminate with oak rough-sawn and Corian worktop.
EGGERSMANN ESSENTIALS Tangible Intelligence: “Every kitchen requires functional storage space that not only is accessible, but is clever in function,” Soltoff says. “Examples include specialized pantry systems, specialty fitting dishwashers, inserts and utensil dividers.” Ubiquitous Materials, Reborn: Looking ahead, Eggersmann’s work will reveal innovative uses of organic materials, such as concretes and raw wood, as well as industrial finishes, such as stainless steel, copper, bronze and aluminum. Continuity Control: “It is important to have a specific style carried throughout the space,” Soltoff asserts. “Many kitchens are a part of and centered around the living space of the home. This doesn’t mean that the kitchen must match the style of furniture, interior trim and construction. Often, our kitchens are shown as a juxtaposition or unexpected center of the home.”

HUBBARDTON FORGE In the quest to discover fresh aesthetics and innovative designs in interior lighting, we turn to Hubbardton Forge for insight. One of the most respected brands in the lighting industry, Vermont-based Hubbardton Forge was founded upon the principles of authenticity and genuineness, giving way to handcrafted, art-worthy lighting. David Kitts, Hubbardton Forge’s Director of Design, reveals what’s in store for high-end light fixture design. “Industrial and steampunk styles are definitely on trend,” he says. “They intersect in interesting ways in their embrace of strong, imaginative design and application. Our Otto collection is a great example of that.” Kitts also notes the movement toward large statement pieces that are designed in a way where “the metal ‘glows’ through the use of LED light guide platforms and shaped elements.”
When beginning a project, remember your lighting is the first thing that guests will notice as they enter a room.
WORLD-CLASS EXPERTISE FROM HUBBARDTON FORGE Every well-designed kitchen should have: Layered lighting, such as multiple mini-pendants, a chandelier or wall sconces. Every well-designed bathroom should have: Color-accurate lighting. Materials + finishes of note: A new gloss-white finish; mixed metals; interesting glass elements used in surprising ways. LED driven: Hubbardton Forge has found ways to incorporate LED technology into the design, not just build LED fixtures. Advice for the homeowner: Think about the whole project; how one piece will interact with another. Don’t leave the lighting design for last.
1. The Louvre chose LED lighting for the Mona Lisa. The Glide LED bath bar offers a contemporary feel and is perfect for a large vanity space. 2. The brass and glass of the Otto sphere pendant combine to make a strong statement and focal point for the room. 3. The minimalistic Cuff pendant design, with its heavy steel cuff and thick blown glass captured within the cuff, works with a variety of styles.

Q+A WITH RICHARD ABBOTT OF PARIS CERAMICS
Paris Ceramics blends time-honored materials and craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology to create rare products for floors, walls, ceilings, fireplaces and other objects of art. “We have a lot of new CAD machinery that enhances what you can do in terms of profiles patterns, etc.,” explains the firm’s manager Richard Abbott. “However, you still need to do finishing by hand to give the end result a bespoke quality.” Paris Ceramics has a special relationship with time, design and craftsmanship: No other company has invested in the technology and craftsmen to reclaim and preserve antique objects and flooring back to life. The juxtaposition of the world’s oldest objects preserved by the newest laser-cutting technology is the hallmark of Paris Ceramics. Only Paris Ceramics employs in-house artisans in the United States to ensure a near-flawless finish, size and product. As for new trends in the realm of flooring, Abbott cites traditional and new patterns, an increase in the use of various shades of blue and the rise of porcelain. “We try not to copy, but to be innovative,” Abbott says.
What is inspiring you now? New and traditional patterns and textures in stone and wood. How do you choose materials for each collection? We base selection on what we like, and it has to be timeless. Is it important to have a cohesive style throughout a kitchen or bathroom? Yes, but don’t forget the whimsical and fun. Describe the philosophy behind your firm. Paris Ceramics is the premier resource for timeless flooring material with soul.
1. Floor: hammered German silver. Shower: mother-of-pearl ceramic tile. Wall: breccia marble. 2. Antique Andalusian gray and white marble. 3. Floor: distressed French refined limestone. Wall: antique bottom-cut Bourgogne limestone.

The range hood has become the centerpiece of the kitchen and often sets the tone for the kitchen design.
The kitchen has evolved from a utilitarian workspace to a familial gathering and entertaining central core of a home. The focal point of many of today’s most elegant and cutting-edge kitchens is the range hood, which was also born from a purely functional perspective. Zephyr Ventilation, based in Alameda, California, is changing this paradigm by blending high-caliber utility with high-quality aesthetics. “We have elevated the hood to its rightful place, with a focus on design, innovation and technology,” shares the company’s president Luke Siow. “Since the launch of our first hoods in 1997, we have remained true to our vision of delivering the unexpected: by deliberately seeking to change the marketplace.” The sophisticated hoods reveal remarkable technological feats within the kitchen, such as its DCBL Suppression System®, the industry’s first range hood motor powered by direct current (DC) energy (an evolutionary step from the traditional AC-powered range hood) and the newly unveiled Lucé with ICON Touch® controls, which integrate into the hood’s stainless steel canopy and control the hood’s LED lights in cloud white, deep blue and amber colors.
1. Lucé Island features industry-first, fully integrated touch controls, three-color accent lighting and a modern aesthetic. 2. Wave is a vertical-style hood with Dual Capture Zones to improve capture performance and ensure a well-ventilated kitchen. 3. Lux Island features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling above the island cooktop. 1
Q+A WITH LUKE SIOW, PRESIDENT OF ZEPHYR VENTILATION What are the top style and material trends for 2016? We are seeing a trend toward mixed materials in kitchen ventilation that incorporate ceramic, mixed metallics and glass. Colored and LED lighting are also trends we are noticing in ventilation as well as other kitchen appliances. What new innovations should consumers keep an eye out for? The Wave hood features Dual Capture Zones that collect contaminates through two points to ensure a smokeand debris-free kitchen. Lux Island features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling and Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter of the hood. Is it important to have a cohesive style throughout a kitchen? A kitchen can have a cohesive style while still communicating the homeowner’s personality and individuality. We’re seeing a lot more color, pattern and customized appliances in the kitchen that truly reflect the style of the homeowner.

FROM SOPHISTICATED STAYS TO ZEN-LIKE RETREATS, HOTELS AND RESORTS HAVE MASTERED THE ART OF MOOD-SETTING STYLE AND RISK-TAKING DESIGN IN THE KITCHEN AND BATH. WRITTEN BY MARISA SPYKER
162 / LUXESOURCE.COM
When it comes right down to it, designers often have one overarching mission: to make the home feel like a perpetual retreat. The two most-frequented rooms in the home are no exception. Baths often transform into visions of spa-like bliss and kitchens become clean, open-plan breaths of fresh air. So, when seeking aesthetic inspiration, it’s only natural to turn to the very experts of escapist style: the hospitality industry. From modernist urban highrises to secluded South American estancias, the world’s most beautiful hotels and resorts have mastered the art of maximizing views, inspiring relaxation and pushing the boundaries of great design (a room bathed almost entirely in sleek, glossy wood, for example). Here, we celebrate five-star style in all its glory, alongside products that make vacation-like living a breeze to adopt at home.

MANDARIN ORIENTAL BARCELONA, SPAIN
DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: Design maven Patricia Urquiola employed her own wall-mounted chrome fixtures from her collection for Axor in the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona’s Penthouse Suite bath. Glossy ceramic stools from Rosenthal mirror the smooth surfaces of the vanity top and tub. WHY WE LOVE IT: Leave it to Urquiola to strike just the right balance of serene and sophisticated. The metallic vanity and wall of beveled-edge mirrors infuse an element of glam in the space, while the light wooden floors and tub keep it feeling soft and warm. mandarinoriental.com
DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: The brainchild of Singapore-based architect Kerry Hill, this spacious suite bathroom is composed almost entirely of traditional Japanese Kakou Gan granite, allowing the pièce de résistance—a deep Japanese furo soaking tub—to take center stage. WHY WE LOVE IT: High above the urban bustle, the bathroom’s monochromatic gray stone décor evokes an air of simplicity that’s symbolic of Japanese culture. The space also allows the spectacular views of Tokyo and, on clear days, Mt. Fuji, to shine through floor-to-ceiling windows. aman.com
JOSE IGNACIO, URUGUAY DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: When renowned Norwegian art collectors and hoteliers Alex and Carrie Vik sought to create a 12-suite luxury boutique hotel in the middle of Uruguayan farmland, their mission was to make as little of an environmental impact as possible (think solar panels, wind and geothermal energy, a water-recycling system). The bath in the artist-designed master suite is no exception: The entire room, including the walls, door, sink and tub, is enveloped in richly veined wood locally sourced from jacaranda trees. WHY WE LOVE IT: The dark wood-clad bath pays homage to the retreat’s sprawling 4,000 acres of countryside, but sleek details like the sculptural lines of the tub, minimalist steel fixtures and recessed lighting give the space a decidedly modern feel. vikretreats.com 164 / LUXESOURCE.COM

JEFFREY WILKES Resort whisperer Jeffrey Wilkes is the creative mind behind some of the most Zen-inspiring retreats in South Asia and beyond. At the Ritz-Carlton Mandapa in Ubud, Bali, he channels the lush outdoors with rustic materials and a natural palette. designwilkes.com 166 / LUXESOURCE.COM
What was your design inspiration for this space? When we created the bathrooms for the rooms and suites at Mandapa, it was our desire to have them act as extensions of the rooms. It’s a resort, and the experience of the bath, and the relaxation one feels from the experience, is paramount. It was important to create a space where someone would take the time to linger and enjoy a soak in the tub while looking out at the view.
Tell us about the mélange of materials. Touch is always a very important aspect of a room, along with the visual component. Here, patterned fretwork, weathered timbers and leather-finished marble stone all work in combination to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Woven ceiling panels are reminiscent of local Alang-alang (thatched) roofs. We also commissioned vanity sinks carved from teak wood with small decorative patterns around them.
How is the natural environment reflected? The earthy palette of chocolate brown, gold and bronze that we introduced to these spaces is taken in large part from the landscape and rivers that surround the property. We hung a pair of round mirrors over the vanity and flanked them with uneven water drop glass lights. It helps create the illusion that you’ve just set up camp in the forest, like you’re part of the evolving landscape.

Perhaps only second in line to what constitutes a really great hotel room (behind, of course, a drool-worthy bed) are insanely comfortable bath towels. Those of the Turkish variety are often considered the crème de la crème thanks to premium cotton fibers that are known for quick-drying qualities and an uncanny ability to become even softer after washing.

WHITE OUT It’s a tall order to make a place once the stomping grounds of Frank Sinatra and Winston Churchill even more fabulous than it was before.

Part of the luxury of a hotel room snooze is what happens when it’s over—that next morning when you wake up to breakfast being rolled in on a room-service cart.

LUXE HITS THE ROAD TO GATHER DESIGN INSPIRATION FROM AROUND THE GLOBE WITH THE HELP OF THE SAVVIEST OF TOUR GUIDES.
WINDOWS ON THE WORLD It’s true that inspiration can strike anywhere— but it doesn’t hurt to take your creative muse on a trip every once in a while. From Mexico and England to Scandinavia and beyond, the colors and flavors of far-flung locales can be as intoxicating at home as they are in their respective parts of the world (think bold Yucatán tiles on a patio in Southern California or a beautifully patinaed Swedish grandfather clock holding court in a farmhouse in Texas). Here, we tapped some of our favorite interiors experts for an insider’s look at the best international destinations for design lovers.

mission: WANDERLUST Designer Laura Kirar performs her own southern migration multiple times each year: The New York-based interiors maven and product designer owns a home in Mérida, Mexico, and finds herself endlessly enthralled with the historical city’s exciting arts scene and thriving community of craftsmen. Read below, as she fashions what her pitch-perfect itinerary looks like for a fun-filled day in the Yucatán. laurakirar.com 9 a.m. I always try to start the day with yoga and a swim at home. I’m still in the process of restoring my 18th-century hacienda, so I love to spend as much time there as possible. 10 a.m. Next up is breakfast: There are always tortillas made by hand, fresh-squeezed mango juice, huevos revueltos and avocados picked from the tree in my own yard.
11 a.m. There really isn’t a “shopping district” in Mérida, but the Mercado Principal in the center of town has a little bit of everything—from food to shoes to vintage jewelry. There’s also great shopping around the Parque de Santiago in Centro, where you can find contemporary, artisan-made sandals, hats and accessories at places like Kukul. 1 p.m. The lunch at Hacienda Temozon is fantastic; I always order the guacamole con chapulines, sopa de limon, carnitas and a tequila with sangrita. If it’s Sunday, we go to brunch at Hacienda Ochil. The hacienda is picturesque and also has its own James Turrell installation. 3 p.m. Next, I make my rounds: I visit FonArt shop for the best in embroidery, pottery, and table and bed linens, Coqui Coqui for natural mosquito repellent and room scents, and the Alfaro Galeria de Arte y Antigüedades in the Centro; though, the term “antiques” should be taken lightly—it has a really eclectic collection. 5 p.m. Then, it’s another late afternoon dip in one of the many surrounding cenotes, pools that form naturally when a limestone bedrock collapses. I love the Cenote Kankirixche; it’s breathtakingly beautiful.
Counterclockwise from top: Designer Laura Kirar wandering through her favorite outdoor market, taking a dip in the Cenote Kankirixche, and starting the night with friends and La Negrita’s famous mescal.
6 p.m. Time for a siesta at home followed by early drinks at La Negrita, where you’ll find the best taquitos and mescal around.

2LOCAL flavor David Serrano, one half of the creative duo behind celebrated Los Angeles shop Downtown, spills on what he loves most about his home away from home in Mexico:
“The quality of light in Mérida inspired me to start painting again. They sometimes call it the ‘White City,’ but its skies are very blue. And, while it doesn’t have mountains, the clouds are so white and full that they almost feel like unscalable peaks in their own right. It’s a big, big world, but I’m treating this little corner of it as my very own cabinet of curiosities.” downtown20.net
This year’s first-annual Caravana Americana, which took place in March, made a big splash in Mexico City thanks to its stunning array of art, fashion and housewares from all across Latin America. From the creative minds of Regina Barrios and Alessandro Cerutti, the pair behind the cult-favorite boutique Lago DF, Caravana Americana seeks to pair Mexican makers—like 1050 Grados, Ricardo Casas and CyTF, whose handsome marquetry work is shown here— with international buyers for a weekend of contemporary design bliss that we can’t wait to mark and set on our calendars for next year. caravanaamericana.com
The former executive director of one of the newest additions to the Yucatán arts scene, Fundación de Artistas, Indira Londono (right) reflects on the region’s growing creative community and gives collectors the inside scoop on where to go and who to watch when building their portfolios. fundaciondeartistas.org
Top Mexican artists to watch: Mérida has many talented local artists, but I’m mostly interested in artists who redefine the idea of art and utilize it as a vector to create a dialogue about relevant social issues. Some of my favorites are Alexa Torre, Marcela Diaz, Stefania Rivadeneyra, Karla Madera and Uggo Gonzalez.
What makes Mexican art different? It’s difficult to categorize and compare artwork from Mexico versus the U.S. because there are many factors that influence artists even within regions of the same country—for example, the art in the Yucatán will be very different than in areas like Oaxaca and Mexico City. Here, art specifically draws influences from many factors such as its region’s Mayan ancestry, Spanish occupation and the Caribbean climate.
Must-visit art fairs or festivals for American collectors: My favorites are Noche Blanca—an event sponsored by the city of Mérida in conjunction with artists, galleries, museums and public spaces for a finely curated tour of what the community here has to offer—and the National Biennial of Visual Arts of Yucatán—which features a wide range of Mexican art, including paintings, sculptures, photography, video-art and installations.

MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD London to me is not only my original home and teenage stomping ground, it is a main artery for my decorative inspirations and design shopping. These days, I like to start my trip by booking into one of the splendid new design hotels that have sprung up across the country. My current hot spot is the super luxurious Beaumont hotel in London’s W1; it makes you feel like you’re in The Great Gatsby, but you’re not, you’re on a shopping trip with me; so, here’s what comes next: 8:30 a.m. There’s no better place to start your day than in The Colony Grill Room at Selfridges with a full English breakfast and lashings of Earl Grey tea all silver-served with the finest attention to detail. 10 a.m. Head over to Alfies Antique Market with dealers that sell everything from vintage-leather and vellum travel trunks (ask for Leslie Warander at The Tintin Shop to show you his secret stash hidden upstairs) to 1970s and ’80s Italian furniture and lighting. 11:30 a.m. From there, go to King’s Road in Chelsea. With luck, you’ll get to catch a viewing of the latest sale at Lots Road Auctions, a veritable bargainhunters local auction held weekly. My favorite antiques store in London, Guinevere, is just around the corner and is a real treat for the eyes.
12:30 p.m. After antiquing, a spot of lunch is required. I head to the Wolseley—by Piccadilly Circus—a European restaurant designed by my friend, the late and great David Collins. It’s highly stylized with black-and-white marble floors, bronze chandeliers and chinoiserie-lacquered panels. 2 p.m. A little après stroll down Piccadilly will bring you to Fortnum & Mason, the luxury food and lifestyle store that happens to make my very favorite tea, Imperial Earl Grey. After stocking up on that, I head to Jermyn Street to visit my tailor: Ozwald Boateng makes the most fun suiting. 3 p.m. No day in London is complete without art. The S2 Gallery, run by Fru Tholstrup, belongs to Sotheby’s and houses exhibits by rising art stars like Charming Baker, along with group shows, like the recent exhibit curated by Tommy Hilfiger and Jeffrey Deitch. As a photo enthusiast, I also head over to the Hamilton Gallery in Mayfair. 5 p.m. London is known for its quality upholstery and fabric houses, but for me, visiting the tiny trim shop VV Rouleaux is a necessity. This jewelbox store offers amazing trims, tassels, beads, feathers and other theatrical decorating tools. 7 p.m. The perfect day in London ends with my favorite eatery, The Ivy. Favored by London’s theater crowd, its recently remodeled interiors are cozy and glamorous. martynlawrencebullard.com

LONDON calling While Michael S. Smith has become a bit of a symbol of Americana— having been tapped by the Obama administration to reimagine the White House’s residential spaces during the First Family’s time in Washington, D.C.—the LA-based interior designer actually built much of his influential aesthetic from his time overseas in London, where he studied at the beloved Victoria and Albert Museum and fostered a lifelong love of antiques. Find out why his London calling is as loud as ever. michaelsmithinc.com What do you love most about British design? English homes, especially the wonderful country houses, have a very identifiable voice; they’re about putting various things together in a way that’s both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Since the country has a longer history than the U.S., people have been acquiring furniture and passing it down in the family for much longer, and the result is both a lack of fussiness and a
Known for his wild color palettes and playful style, Jonathan Adler doesn’t mind buttoning it up every once in a while with a dose of classic British design. Here are his top-five spots to visit in London. jonathanadler.com 1. My shops! I have one on Sloane Avenue and one on Westbourne Grove. They’re great fun (as evidenced by Adler’s Zebra British flag rug shown at right), and I’d love them even if they weren’t mine. 2. Liberty of London is a must. The building is sublime, with the most gorgeous Gothic architecture and patina. 3. It’s not a trip without a visit to Harrods. You can get literally anything there. 4. I love Alfie’s Antique Market—a —a building full of little shops and surrounding streets with shops. It’s packed with heavenly finds. I spend almost an entire day there whenever I’m in London. 5. The Conran Shop is another favorite. I love going to the flagship location in Chelsea. They always have something new and outside the box.
practicality when it comes to design. It sees very formal and important pieces feeling at home with more approachable and humanistic things: a mastery of the mix. Favorite British designers past and present: The classic example, of course, is the design firm of Colefax and Fowler; their work has been a not-so-secret source of inspiration in a lot of really good English houses. Beyond them, I love the modernity and color of the legendary David Hicks and the historical elegance of Robert Kime. Is there a historic English house you’d particularly love to design? I’d be truly thrilled to outfit places like Haddon Hall or Chiswick House—estates that have really beautiful architecture and are just extraordinary with a kind of eccentric appeal. There’s something challenging and exciting about creating personality in a home that already has so much of its own.

Los Angeles-based interiors and product designer Jill Sorensen may have left her Swedish upbringing behind in terms of miles traveled, but she continues to embrace the country’s sophistication and simplicity in her fun and quirky home projects all over the U.S. Here, she sits down with Luxe to give us a Swedish design history lesson. jillsorensen.com Favorite Swedish designers past and present: I’m a fan of King Gustav III. He was a Swedish king in the late 1700s who was obsessed with design, and during his reign, he created the style of furniture that’s the most famous in the country today: Gustavian. I also love Josef Frank, who designed the amazing Swedish Tenn fabrics that are like pieces of art. What do you love most about Swedish design? I love all things Gustavian, which is
basically a simplified country version of Louis XVI style: the distressed furniture, whitepainted floors, etc. Because of the lack of sunlight (only four hours or so a day in the winter time), Swedes are experts at adding brightness to their interiors with pastel walls and white interiors. Best shops to visit in Stockholm: You’ll find the most incredible fabrics imaginable at the beautiful Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm; it was originally founded in 1924, and it never fails to impress. I’m also always surprised at the things I find at Bukowskis auction house. It has incredible antiques up for grabs and is surprisingly affordable. Otherwise, blocket.se is also one of my favorite little secrets: It’s a resale site that is very popular in Sweden. You can find amazing things for next to nothing in your local area!

Swedish native-turned-New York and Palm Beach mainstay, Lars Bolander shares what keeps him going back to his homeland year after year: “What I love most about Sweden and Swedish design is its simplicity. The country’s sense of beauty is so uncomplicated: It’s all very pale with lots of neutral colors, grays and whites, and dove blue. I have a vacation home in a small village there with great history: As little as 50 years ago, the town telephonist lived downstairs. There was still just one phone in the whole village, and she would have to ring bells attached to people’s homes with string to alert them to a call!” larsbolander.com

ON THE ROAD WITH CATHERINE BAILEY, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, HEATH CERAMICS.
We were invited to speak at the Monocle Quality of Life conference and took the chance to go to a place we’d been dreaming and planning on going to anyway. And we weren’t disappointed thanks to the classic buildings, wonderful design heritage, and great things going on culturally and entrepreneurially. Augarten Porcelain Factory Wow! This factory (above) is such a far cry from ours in California. We love that the owners of the company appreciated their staff so much that they created this beautiful place for them to work. We think the same way: that great work comes from great work environments. We just have a different style!
Part of researching tile for the promotion of our latest book, Tile Makes the Room: Good Design from Heath Ceramics, this trip grew out of our fascination with places like Portugal, with cities and regions with layers of history that’s been preserved and respected. National Tile Museum There’s such a rich heritage of handcrafted tile in this country that they opened a museum dedicated to it (above) and set it in a former convent that dates back to 1509. The reverence for tile, a material that we so often overlook, filled us with awe. Palácio Ramalhete This hotel (shown at right) was an oasis of calm. There was gorgeous tile wainscoting everywhere, which was our favorite touch. We love hotels like this: intimate places (this one only has 12 rooms) with deep history.
Tage Andersen’s home (above), far from any major town, is an amazing work of art—and a working farm. The villa and gardens were created by Andersen, himself, a maverick florist and artist. It was designed almost as an art installation, but, again, with a farm, so it’s pleasing aesthetically but not at all precious. These trees were something that Andersen must have envisioned as many as 20 years ago; it’s taken that long to become what they are. heathceramics.com

hat began as a personal home renovation project for Chris Black, evolved into the creation of a highly acclaimed, full-service design-build residential remodeling firm, Blackline Renovations. “I lived in the M Streets for four years and enjoyed working on my own 1926 bungalow so much that when the opportunity arose in 2002 to establish my own construction business, I decided to start a remodeling company,” the East Dallas resident explains. With a philosophy analogous to that of the community’s, Blackline Renovations is steeped in honesty. “Our philosophy is to be open, honest and upfront with all clients, setting proper expectations for the project ahead of them and communicating every aspect of the project as it is underway,” he says. From a builder’s point of view, East Dallas was an alluring location for Black to live and establish a business because of its superior quality of homes and supreme location. “East Dallas is centrally located and allows me to be flexible. The age of the neighborhood also drew me in because the homes were built at a time when there were no cheap materials or methods of construction,” he says. Stylistically, his projects are diverse, ranging from Tudor to Craftsman to ranch styles. The caliber of his clientele, however, remains the same, regardless of the project at hand. “Our clientele is the type that trusts us to handle the entire project,” he says. “Our clients know what they want and allow us to put it all together for them. They have an emotional attachment to their house and want to make it the house of their dreams.”

or Kyle Brinkley, principal broker at Brinkley Property Group, being a real estate professional entails a myriad of roles—all of which he and his team enthusiastically embrace. “We look at ourselves as ambassadors for the community,” he says. “It is a lot of fun to work with people moving here; we not only show them homes but also show them the community. We help them get plugged in. It’s a great feeling.” Located in Dallas, on the Katy Trail between East Dallas and the Park Cities, Brinkley Property Group is a boutique residential real estate brokerage focused on quality and productivity. “We are not the biggest brokerage in town agent-wise, nor do we aspire to be. Building and maintaining our reputation has been at the forefront of our business since inception and will continue to shape our growth,” Brinkley says. Like many of the families who come to Lakewood/East Dallas, Brinkley knew the area was an ideal place to “put down roots” quite early in the process. “I purchased my first house in the neighborhood knowing it was where I wanted to work and live,” he says. “My wife and I have lived here for 10 years, and through our different phases of life, from dating to now with our second child, we have continued to enjoy all that the neighborhood has to offer. It’s comforting to raise a family in a close-knit community.”
A LIFE WELL LIVED: DISCOVERING LAKEWOOD THROUGH THE EYES OF KYLE BRINKLEY The diversions: Go to an outdoor concert at the Arboretum on a Thursday night. It paints the perfect picture of what it’s like to live in Lakewood/East Dallas. The atmosphere: High quality of life and a small-town feel in a big city. I can literally ride my bike to everything I enjoy doing on a daily basis. The architecture: Thoughtful, tasteful, classic. There are different pockets of the neighborhood that are conducive to specific styles ranging from traditional to modern. The people: Laid-back but conscientious. The future: We’re going to see growth from those that feel they’ve discovered the next best thing and from those within the neighborhood that have always known how great it is but are in need of different space. 2

the locals. Spend some time at White Rock Lake on a weekend morning. Go to some of the mom-and-pop restaurants with friends. And definitely make a trip to the Lakewood Growler if you like beer! What type of person is best suited for life there? Lakewood is a wonderful place for young and old people alike that can get out and pursue healthy living options.
hree generations of home building have allowed Matthew Montgomery of Montgomery Custom Homes to appreciate the family-first lifestyle afforded to Lakewood/East Dallas residents. Known for its first-rate school systems, the area appeals to new and established families alike for its quality of life and education. “My clients are very interested in the educational opportunities, and this is definitely a major motivation to live in the area. We work with young families nine out of 10 times. This is also one of the main reasons we moved our family to Lakewood,” Montgomery shares. Beyond the draw of being a safe and valuable haven for children of all ages, Lakewood has its fair share of alluring qualities for the “grown-ups” too. “Lakewood/East Dallas is just a cool place!” Montgomery enthuses. “You’ve got this beautiful part of Dallas and White Rock Lake mixed in with a lot of friendly, eclectic and loving people. I was drawn to the area because of the mix of architectural styles, the sense of a small community with people who support each other and the natural beauty of the lake and its surroundings.” Architecturally diverse, Lakewood is a melting pot for styles and design, from Craftsman, Prairie and Spanish Colonial to midcentury modern, ranch and Colonial. A new trend in residential design, Montgomery notes, is transitional styles complemented by farmhouse accents. Montgomery reflects on a few of his favorite architecturally rich neighborhoods. “I love some of the old homes built by Bertram Hill on Swiss Avenue, but my favorite architectural area in Lakewood/East Dallas is Lakewood Boulevard, with the Clifford Hutsell-designed Spanish Colonials,” he says.

he architecture is about an unfolding experience and an understanding of the site,” says architect Tobin Smith of the residence he recently completed for homeowners Dacia and Lanham Napier and their children. “As you progress into the house at entry level, you soon find yourself hovering in the trees.” Situated in one of San Antonio’s oldest neighborhoods, the 3-acre property appears to be in the wilds of Texas, an impression owed to its precipitously sloping topography that merges into a rocky wet-weather ravine. The homeowners learned about Smith through a friend, initially consulting with him about remodeling the property’s original residence. Working with the architect, they eventually decided to build anew, to better position the main living spaces in the most dynamic place where the site could be experienced and appreciated with the most intensity. “The great room of the original house looked across the ravine—the short dimension of the site—to the neighbors’ backyards,” Smith explains. “The new living-and-dining room is rotated 90 degrees from the original and straddles the ravine, addressing the long dimension of the site with no hints of neighbors.” Dacia was involved in every step of the process. An avid art collector and nature lover, she assembled a team of professionals committed to her passion for both the site and art. Smith first recommended landscape architect Christine Ten Eyck, known for connecting people with their region through outdoor spaces and landscapes. Ten Eyck then suggested designer Mark Ashby, a virtuoso of understated style. Art consultant Alexis Armstrong of Armstrong Art Consulting was already onboard: “We had been working together for years as Dacia assembled her own art collection,” says Armstrong. Builders Jeff Truax and Jim Truax and lighting expert Christina Brown of Studio Lumina also signed on to round out the team.

The group faced inherent challenges, which they overcame with striking results. “Because of the ravine, the site was very difficult to build on,” says Jeff Truax. The meticulously calibrated modern design conceived by Smith, who worked alongside project manager Kenny Brown, also required absolute precision. “The roof, doors, windows, walls and ceilings—all the parts of the house—had to fit within an eighth of an inch,” Jeff Truax explains. The main body of the copper-limestone-andglass structure parallels the ravine on the hillside. Because the home is dug into the hillside, only the second story is visible at street level, where living and dining areas occupy a wing that extends into a grove of oak trees and is hidden from the street, as well. Perpendicular to this bridge of rooms, the kitchen, entry and bedrooms also face the lush panorama. A dramatic roofline tilts up at a 12-degree angle above the great room, like an open lid. The effect directs
the view in the living areas, making the site’s natural beauty a presence in the family’s everyday life. “This room is where you get a full understanding of the site,” says Smith. The lower level includes a game room, guest room, office and gym. For the interiors, Ashby, along with designer Lillie Clark, worked with Dacia to create a new concept. “They were starting over completely,” says Ashby, noting the goal was to “bring the beauty of nature inside and create a livable space filled with only the highest-quality pieces.” Starting anew allowed them to make selections with a curator’s eye, beginning with the furnishings—most are from Italy or France and took months to construct—and then focusing on accessories, all the way down to 1950s Gio Ponti flatware. No detail was too small: Ashby even created a custom scent profile. Accommodating the request for livable, family-friendly furnishings, the designer selected durable pieces for longevity and “fabrics such as crushed

velvet and suede that get better with age,” he says. This includes the living room’s blue suede armchairs and velvet-covered Marmol Radziner sofa. With Dacia’s love of nature in mind, Ashby also “looked to elements such as wood and metal and selected a color palette that would play off colors in nature as a way to bring the outside in,” he says. This includes commissioning the master bedroom’s wood-slab headboard by Attie Jonker. Art, including Walton Ford’s crocodile watercolor in the living area, also alludes to nature. Outside, Dacia and Armstrong integrated sculpture into the landscape with Ten Eyck’s help, while Ten Eyck collaborated with colleague Cameron Campbell to design
the front entry, auto court, condensate grotto fountain and pond, plus meandering trails. “This is an inspirational site,” Ten Eyck says. “The trails invite you to experience the property from different perspectives.” Dacia’s strategy to blend art, architecture and design was deliberate. “In my mind, you can’t have one component without the other,” Dacia says. With nature as the common thread for everyone involved, Dacia’s approach helped the team embrace the challenge of building a home above a steep ravine. “We are thrilled by the result,” Smith says. “The house gives the homeowners the experience they wanted—a retreat within the city—by editing the neighborhood context and focusing on the natural realm.”

Dallas homeowners desired a large, welcoming entry for their residence. To help achieve this, Susan Palma and Muffin Lemak of The Design Girls, who assisted with the accessories and details throughout the home, chose David Hicks’ York Castle Blue velvet from Lee Jofa for chair cushions.

or builder Robert Elliott, helping new clients construct a home in Dallas’ University Park neighborhood began with a meeting in the house where they currently lived. “Sitting down with a client in their home and allowing them to explain their goals, how they live and what their priorities are is important for a new property,” he says. “You learn a lot about their style and taste, and they can communicate what they really like—or don’t like.” The clients, a couple with three young children, had solid ideas for their new home, and had even drawn up an elevation plan inspired by travels, houses they admired, and photos they’d taken of details such as windows, arches and overhangs. “The first thing that stood out was that they were very humble,” recalls Elliott. “They wanted their residence to be sophisticated yet subtle and to maximize the outdoor spaces for their children.” While the homeowners had a good idea about the elevation plan, Elliott called on residential designer Brent Slocum to address the interior architecture. “Brent was so great about helping with the inside,” the wife explains. “We told him our needs—that we love to entertain and wanted flow and no dead-end rooms—and he put it on paper for us.” Of particular note, Slocum and the homeowners agreed to locate the home’s main stairway away from the front door, which they set off to one side

rather than in the center. “We didn’t want to walk in to a staircase,” says the wife. “We wanted the entry to function more as a room than a hall.” Handling the design of the interiors herself, with the influence of friends and the good fortune of “being surrounded by people with really good taste,” she says, the wife chose dramatic checkerboard flooring for the space and covered the walls with wallpaper depicting a landscape scene. Throughout the home, a juxtaposition between traditional and modern elements abounds. For example, a grand enclosed loggia, encompassing a series of living, lounging and casual dining areas, features traditional arched windows with steel frames. “We wanted to find a balance between traditional and modern,” says Elliott. “From a construction standpoint, this achieved it just perfectly.” Likewise, the interiors reflect the wife’s overall objective of combining antiques with contemporary artwork, with eyecatching vignettes that include a blue mohair sofa paired with a lacquered Asian table and an 18th-century Italian mirror in the living room. “We wanted an eclectic feel of mixing old and new while striking a balance of having fine things and making it warm and comfortable,” says the wife. “It was a constantly changing process.” A key section of the home is the bright, open kitchen with a multipurpose family room attached. Since the homeowners like to entertain and tend to congregate in these areas, it was important that they be not just comfortable but also easy to maintain. This was achieved, in part, with a custom-designed cabinet and island system featuring white-glass countertops that “are easy to clean and don’t stain like marble,” says the wife. “I had white marble in my previous house and wanted something clean and lower maintenance.” Each of these main living spaces easily accesses various outdoor areas. In partnership with the wife, the task of designing the exteriors in a manner suited to the home’s aesthetic fell to landscape designer Laura Tyson. “There were a lot of different functions that we needed to achieve,” says Tyson, who worked with landscape installer Nick Malinowski of Outdoor Concepts.

Ideal for a young family, a covered patio equipped with RH outdoor furnishings ensures comfortable outdoor living. Tyson added topiary Ligustrums in garden boxes flanking the arched windows; trailing sweet potato vine creates a soft base plant for the topiaries in summer. Artificial turf surrounds the pool.
In addition to a small courtyard off the kitchen with a container garden for growing flowers and vegetables, the outdoor spaces include living and dining areas, and a generous backyard with a swimming pool and surrounding lawn where the homeowners’ children can play. Tyson added terra-cotta brick to the side courtyard—important visually because it’s the owners’ main entrance and is visible from the street—to warm it up and complement the white stucco walls. “I braided together these different zones of the outdoor areas by choosing a palette and staying true to it throughout,” she says. Malinowski worked with Tyson to, among other things, enable the construction of outdoor terraces, coordinate
irrigation and handle excavation for the pool, the axis of which was changed last minute to increase the area around the pool. “We had a lot of creative insight from everybody involved,” he says of the project. “Bringing it to life within city codes was tricky.” With a few tweaks to the original landscape drawings along the way, Malinowski was able to help everything fall into place. Reflecting on the success of the project, Elliott praises the wife, who truly appreciated the efforts of the entire team. “She got everyone to bond and work with her, and it was all done with taste and class,” he says. For the wife, the feeling is mutual. “We had an incredible team,” she says. “They made the whole process so enjoyable.”
Tyson looked to the residence’s refined aesthetic as inspiration for the landscape design, implementing a classic and soft look with plenty of greenery throughout. Shown here, D.D. Blanchard southern magnolia trees line a fence parallel to the pool.
BRANCHING OUT INFORMED BY DECADES OF TRAVEL AND THE BEAUTY OF NATURE, PORCELAIN ARTIST LUCRECIA WAGGONERâ€™S ORGANIC INSTALLATIONS ELEVATE TRADITIONAL CERAMICS TO NEW HEIGHTS. WRITTEN BY LAUREN A. GREENE / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JUSTIN CLEMONS
Lucrecia Waggoner of Lucrecia Waggoner Porcelain in Dallas (pictured right with an installation from her Constellation series) recently began tinting with oil paint for a touch of color (previous pages, right). Waggoner throws each vessel on a wheel before manually creating its wavy appearance. Still in process, the pieces shown opposite are glazed but not yet fired.
sign in Dallas-based porcelain artist Lucrecia Waggoner’s backyard studio states, “Nothing is easy.” This treasured keepsake from her aunt Lucia, a well-known jewelry designer and an inspiration for Waggoner, provides daily motivation. “Working with ceramics is a slow process, and many elements, from weather to timing, can affect the finished piece,” says the artist. “Seeing those words inspires me when an installation gets tough, and every day that I’m working, it pushes me to create new ideas of expression.” Although Waggoner’s process is anything but easy—a single installation requires four to six weeks of throwing, glazing and gilding hundreds of vessels, while preparing an entire show can take six months—it’s difficult to tell by looking at the final product. With delicate shapes and undulating patterns, the organic arrangements evoke a sense of tranquility, movement and ease, appearing to float effortlessly across the
wall. Waggoner often compares her installations to elements in nature, including butterflies, constellations and flowers, which she creates using porcelain, wood, oil paint, acrylic and gold leaf. “I enjoy incorporating multiple mediums in my work,” she says. The road to her signature style, sought by many prominent Dallas collectors, took Waggoner around the globe. Growing up in Mexico City, she caught the arts-and-crafts bug early at a children’s workshop in the Museo Nacional de Antropología. Then in junior high, a friend invited her to a local community center’s ceramics class, where, “I just fell in love with the touch of the clay,” she says. The artist continued honing her skills after school—she has a fashion marketing degree from the Parsons School of Design— by enrolling in ceramics-related workshops everywhere from France to Hong Kong. Waggoner eventually settled in her husband’s home state of Texas, spending two years at Southern Methodist University under artist Peter

Beasecker, focusing on ceramics before opening up her studio. She began as a traditional potter creating utilitarian items like sake cups and dinner plates, but dreamed of showing in galleries and museums. “I want people to look at my art because they relate to it or it transports them somewhere else, or simply because it’s beautiful,” the artist says. The turning point to achieve this came on a trip to Santa Fe in 2004, when she began studying with artist Heidi Loewen, Waggoner’s mentor and friend who helped her make the leap to throwing large-scale pieces. Soon thereafter, Waggoner got her platters into a small gallery, and one show led to another. This past May, Waggoner once again evolved her work for her latest exhibition at Laura Rathe Fine Art in Dallas. “This was the first time I presented an actual sculpture,” she explains. “Normally, my installations are on the wall, but this time it’s a freestanding, 9-foot-tall tree on a granite pedestal.” Attached to the tree, more than 150 vessels create the illusion of cherry blossoms, reminiscent of her time in Asia. From large sculptures to tiny teacups, Waggoner continues to challenge herself—keeping in mind that while nothing is easy, the hard work is always worth it. Now focused on having her work known internationally, Waggoner says, “I have realized my dream to be recognized as a serious artist.”

EMPTY NESTERS BUILD A COMFORTABLE CAPE COD-INSPIRED ISLAND RETREAT THAT MIXES CLEAN LINES AND SPLASHES OF SEASIDE HUES. WRITTEN BY KIMBERLY OLSON / PHOTOGRAPHY BY JULIE SOEFER
Full of movement and color and designed to endure the bay areaâ€™s climate and conditions, a welcoming landscape greets the homeowners upon each return to their Galveston vacation home. Palm trees serve to block unappealing views while also framing vistas of and from the house.
or decades, a Houston couple spent weekends with their children at a small vacation home in Galveston, yet with their kids now grown, they desired a larger getaway on the island for entertaining friends and, eventually, grandchildren. So, amidst a nature preserve with breathtaking bay views, they found a lovely spot upon which to build. “There are birds, including spoonbills and cranes, and the scenery always changes as the tide rolls in and out,” says the wife. This tranquil setting provided the ideal backdrop for a new Cape Cod-inspired abode—a project well-suited for their longtime interior designer, Marjorie Slovack. “I have a home in Galveston,” Slovack says. “So I understand how living on the water can influence you.” Residential designer John L. Sullivan Jr. carefully considered the property when drawing up the plans. “The clients wanted views across the wetlands over to the bay
waters,” he says. “But they didn’t want afternoon sun, which can be harsh, so we added overhangs, covered decks, balconies and pavilions.” Because the couple leans toward a more traditional style, but desired light and airy interiors, the interiors translated into “an open-concept living area with clean-lined architecture—not a lot of intricate ceiling treatments,” says Sullivan, who devised a spacious living area on the main level with floor-to-ceiling windows. The main priority was to capture the views and the feel of the land within a relaxed setting. The location was an important factor from the start. For example, the home had to be structurally engineered to weather hurricanes, and construction materials needed to endure the elements over time. “We used composite products like Trex decking to withstand the weather and salty air,” says builder Jimmy Clore. Every fastener is also marine-grade stainless steel, while ground-level doors are

Spanish cedar to resist expansion from humidity. Likewise, landscape designer Janielle Guzinski, who also handled the installation, selected sturdy plants and worked “to create a welcoming landscape full of movement and color that would hold up to the changing seasonal conditions,” she explains. Aesthetically, the locale also influenced the interiors. “We brought the watercolor palette—sand and water tones—in from outside,” says Slovack, who worked with the design team of Amy Lopez and Kathia De La Torre. “It’s a quiet reference to nature.” Slovack and the team covered pecky cypress ceiling beams, along with a few of the furnishings, in a light-wood finish for an airy feel. While paying homage to the seaside, however, they stopped short of being too literal. “Marjorie didn’t want to get theme-y with the expected seashells,” says the wife. Subtle references include the great room’s abstract of the Florida Keys from
Leftbank Art in La Mirada, California, as well as a clamshell holding succulents that was a gift from the wife’s father. When alone, the homeowners utilize the main floor, which houses the living areas, kitchen and master bedroom. However, the main level is also a prime gathering spot for family and friends. “Everything’s been thought about for groups,” Slovack says. In the kitchen, for instance, an oversize island with dining counter, featuring a different countertop than the perimeter cabinetry to make it a focal point for entertaining, invites guests to gather around. “When you cook a lot, everybody gravitates toward the kitchen,” the wife says, “and I wanted people to have a barstool to pull up and be in the midst of the action.” Further catering to large groups, all of the living spaces are casual and comfortable, and, instead of a lot of antiques— irreplaceable if damaged during a hurricane—practical

furnishings were key. “If you’re in your bathing suit, come on in,” says the wife. “No area is off-limits.” Adds Slovack: “We used a lot of indoor-outdoor fabrics, so you can wipe them and they won’t mold.” And because the homeowners are tall, Slovack and the design team took the height and depth of seating into account by customizing most of the upholstered pieces in their workroom. “People want to be comfortable and stretch out,” Slovack says. They also convinced the clients to incorporate recliners, converting the wife’s previous opinion of them with comfy yet tailored versions where everyone now clamors to sit. Steps were also taken to ensure guests enjoyed the outdoors as much as they do the indoors. Every bedroom has a bathroom, so there’s no waiting for a shower after coming in from the pool. Furniture layouts correspond with bay views, and the game room has a pool table, shuffleboard
table, built-in bar, lounge seating and balconies. “The cupola over the game room is a great architectural element,” Sullivan says. “It brings all kinds of light into that area.” Also in the game room, a custom coffee table, designed with two ottomans for extra seating, adds another touch of convenience and comfort. “Your private space is one of the most significant influences on your life,” Slovack says. “It’s important to set up your environment to support you.” Mission accomplished, say the homeowners, whose private getaway is perfectly primed with comfort, relaxation and the scenery in mind to not only entertain now, but also share their tradition of visiting Galveston with future generations. “I just love it,” says the wife. “Once I get out of the hustle and bustle of Houston and go over the bridge, my blood pressure drops. I am always anxious to get back to our beach house.”

FUSCH ARCHITECTS When a 24-year-old Robbie Fusch first experienced the English countryside, he knew he had discovered his passion. Today, his eponymous firm, Fusch Architects, has become known for its country French and English masterpieces. Based in Dallas, the firm is led by Fusch and partner Craig Vaughn. Although versed in a variety of architectural styles, the firm’s ability to create homes that are at once timeless, elegant and innovative has decided its success. “Our firm has established a reputation for authentic European design,” Fusch says. “Our front elevations, use of materials and attention to detail are what set us apart from our competitors.” While the nature of their designs requires the use of elements from times past, Fusch and Vaughn believe that the success of a project is determined also by its ability to maintain practicality. “We want our projects to reflect the clients’ needs both in the present and within the future, as their functions and needs evolve over time,” Vaughn says. “Luxury is respecting historic architectural precedents while meeting the needs of today’s clientele, through progressive and technologically advanced materials.” Completing work throughout the U.S. and abroad, the Fusch team aims to provide a well-rounded experience for their clients, educating them on different design styles, listening to their specific needs and keeping them involved throughout the process. Whether a country French estate or English cottage, the firm’s experts aim to give clients a home that perfectly suits their every want and need. “I enjoy giving families a home for the long run—a design that won’t become outdated or outgrown by its owners,” Fusch says. “Each design is like a puzzle: unique and exciting as it evolves.”
TOP: This country French residence was inspired by the medieval architecture of the Dordogne region in Southwest France. BOTTOM: A private estate of the Elizabethan architectural style in Dallas, Texas, this residence exhibits the charming details that Fusch finds so welcoming and inviting—aspects that every home should possess.

DESIGN GROUP, INC. RPGA Design Group, Inc. is an esteemed architectural practice that was founded by brothers Richard and Robert Garza more than two decades ago. The firm has worked on public and private projects that range from fire stations and schools to mixed-use developments and large estate properties in 26 states across the U.S. Creating buildings that are thoughtful and sensible is a fundamental goal of the firm. The practice designs buildings and public spaces that are an integrated and authentic reflection of the cities, environs and individuals they serve. “What is very inspiring is all of the different cultures on which we touch from a design standpoint and how each culture may have its particular subtlety with respect to design and how it may be introduced into other designs to work more effectively,” shares Robert, RPGA’s principal and CEO. The Fort Worth, Texas-based firm’s projects evolve in response to their specific context and program, drawing influence from the people and the place—and designing less in accordance with strict stylistic guidelines and more for the individual. “RPGA’s philosophy revolves around the client as the central organizing element in the process. By listening first to what our client wants and then incorporating our tremendous talent and design passion, we are able to thoughtfully develop a masterful design, slowly finessing the smallest details into the overall composition,” explains Javier Lucio, the firm’s principal and vice president. The team’s client- and context-driven approach is guided by restraint, precision, creativity and contemplation. “The only thing that separates a mediocre design from an excellent design is the time spent carefully thinking through the design and design talent,” says Richard, RPGA’s principal and president.

How do you define luxury? Luxury is not about size and quantity; it is about pure quality. Additionally, quality can in fact come in a small package. It is through careful and masterful design. What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? What’s most important to you? The common link in every project is the creation of a sense of place, which is sensitive to its surroundings while maintaining an abundance of character.

A one-stop shop for homeowners, designers, architects and contractors, Rick’s Hardware & Plumbing has been supplying elegance to Texans since 1976. Founded by Paul Tacker in Duncanville, Texas, the family-owned and -operated firm began out of a van, where Tacker sold hardware products. Four decades later, marked by a strong work ethic, a deep commitment to customer relations and a keen sense of design trends, Rick’s Hardware & Plumbing has grown to include three beautifully appointed showrooms in Grapevine, Granbury and Dallas. “Our concept has always been customer service driven and has continued for 40 years,” shares Arman DeLaughter, general manager of Rick’s Hardware & Plumbing, who started working for the company at age 15 sweeping floors and making deliveries. “We believe in exceptional customer service and going over and beyond for that client. We work in a family atmosphere, and we want that to translate to our relationships with our clients.” Working with a broad range of clientele, Rick’s Hardware & Plumbing is experienced in both small- and large-scale projects, such as outfitting a new luxury high-rise or palatial private residence, or helping a homeowner with a small remodeling project. “This is what makes us special and allows us to cater to a broad range of individuals—we can provide for all. We’re educated on products and savvy to design and style. We are a company that doesn’t zero in on one specific clientele,” DeLaughter says.

REDSTONE KITCHENS For three decades, discerning clients have realized their culinary dreams thanks to Redstone Kitchens. The Dallas-based kitchen design-build firm creates high-functioning, aesthetically beautiful spaces that are tailored extensively to the user. Through learning each client’s unique lifestyle and stylistic preferences, Redstone Kitchens is able to build upon a foundation of personalization to create a one-of-a-kind design. “Our favorite part of the creative process is getting to know our clients on a personal level and working hand in hand to make their dreams a reality,” shares Redstone Kitchens’ manager Robert Droste. Approaching each project upon the premise that “form follows function,” the design team at Redstone Kitchens is committed to creating an environment of organization, ease and elegance. “Our business is built on the belief that each client should be able to experience the excitement as we create a beautiful kitchen as an extension of themselves,” Droste says. With a team that is as dedicated as it is diverse, the professionals at Redstone Kitchens offer expertise in interior design, architecture, engineering and art. While clients’ aesthetic preferences range from sleek modernism to regal classicism, Redstone Kitchens maintains its commitment to enduring design. “The European style influences all of our kitchen designs, regardless of a traditional, transitional or contemporary design,” he says. Currently, Redstone Kitchens is enhancing its showroom experience with new interactive displays that reveal the latest looks in kitchen design. Visitors will appreciate and enjoy the broad selection of Downsview cabinetry available, as Redstone Kitchens is the exclusive Dallas-Fort Worth dealer for the custom-crafted, North American-made brand.

BLU SKY LIVING Beginning with curb appeal and throughout every room, high-caliber home staging can transform a property into a home with which buyers will fall in love. Blu Sky Living of Dallas has been a driving force and visionary behind countless residential stages, assisting sellers in expediting the sale of their properties while maximizing price. In 2015, Blu Sky Living's typical home sold in 72 days—an impressive feat given the average price of $3.5 million. Blu Sky Living’s approach to home staging is centered on livability and elegance, underscored by market knowledge. “Our staging services are focused on creating an interior plan that showcases the best of the home and highlights the features desired by home buyers,” explains Cindy Musgrove, the company’s principal. “Our role is to identify all aspects of the interiors that will help provide a competitive advantage and get the home sold. We then create a luxurious, cohesive design that appeals to the widest range of buyers.” With a passion for both design and real estate, Musgrove views her role in the industry as multifaceted. “The work that we do is closer to a realtor than a designer. People are surprised by that, but ultimately our job is to make the homes we stage sell at the highest price as quickly as possible,” she says. “We do that by designing a floor plan that reflects the price point and lifestyle of potential buyers while elevating the entire property. High-quality staged interiors exude luxury and add value in the selling process.”
TOP: Adding furnishings and antiqued mirrored panels opened up a small-scale breakfast room. The new vibe is spacious, chic, elegant and functional. BOTTOM: The soft and serene bedroom was transformed into a luxurious retreat, with linens from CASA di LINO and antique bergère chairs, which were custom lacquered and finished.
Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Yes. Our interiors are a sophisticated blend of carefully chosen, high-quality furnishings that complement the architecture, space and style of the home. We generate home sales by creating beautiful spaces with broad buyer appeal. What led you to your current profession? I have a passion for real estate and all things beautiful! I believe people buy a home that appeals to how they want to live. Our job is to bring out the potential of each room in the extraordinary homes we stage. Describe the philosophy behind your firm. We believe that staging is so much more than furniture. Our role is to identify all aspects of the interiors that will help provide a competitive advantage and get the home sold.

Mike Hitchcock, Managing Director of Sales and Operations Alan Odom, Managing Director of Business Development 11935 North Stemmons Freeway Suite 100 Dallas, Texas 972.488.5700 email@example.com thestonecollection.com
THE STONE COLLECTION Since launching in 2007 in Denver, Colorado, The Stone Collection rapidly evolved to encompass a well-designed facility with an inventory of more than 11,000 slabs from over 35 countries, as well as exclusive regional distribution agreements with Caesarstone, Vetrazzo and Neolith, establishing a dominant presence in the Colorado stone and tile market. Now with two new 110,000-square-foot, gallery-style facilities in Phoenix and Dallas, and a 60,000-square-foot facility in Salt Lake City—not to mention the successful acquisition of Interceramic Marble Collection (IMC) in Dallas and Fort Worth—The Stone Collection is poised to continue building its reputation as a national, leading resource for homeowners, fabricators, builders, architects and designers alike seeking the highest quality natural stone and hard surface options. For managing directors Mike Hitchcock and Alan Odom, success was already a familiarity, as they had each already brought their own businesses from startups to largescale, national leadership positions before coming together to bring The Stone Collection to fruition. The company was founded on the primary principles of delivering outstanding service through a knowledgeable and experienced staff, as well as being able to offer accessibility to the highest quality products available. “Our showroom professionals are eager to assist our clients in selecting the best-suited surface for their project. We take pride in the knowledge of our materials and the proper usage and care of each stone,” Hitchcock explains. “We search the world near and far to bring our customers the finest, highest quality natural stone and hard surface materials available, matched by a long-standing commitment to personalized service.”
TOP: A backlit Lumix kitchen installation in a modern residence in Vail, Colorado, gives life to translucent stone and transforms the slab into an impressive piece of art. BOTTOM: Book-matching, shown here in this backlit Arco Iris onyx at The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, is the process of matching two consecutive stone slabs together at their seams so that they mirror each other.
In what kinds of communities do you typically work? The Stone Collection is looking forward to opening its third location in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and is dedicated to showcasing new product lines and providing an improved customer experience. How do you define luxury? First and foremost, cost does not always necessarily equate to luxury. Luxury is much more personal. You will know it and feel it when you see it. What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? We typically recommend to our clients that they bring in any available design elements, such as cabinet, flooring and backsplash samples to aid in their selection.

DESIGNERS’ CHOICE AWARDS AND DESIGN OVATION
In May, over 400 guests arrived at the Dallas Market Center to celebrate two popular ASID award events. First, the Designers’ Choice Awards celebrated local interior designers’ go-to resources. From lighting, furniture and accessories to art and appliances, these companies supply designers with the products needed to complete award-winning spaces. Next, Design Ovation honored the winners of a juried design competition encompassing a wide range of categories. The recognition of so many talented professionals was inspiring for everyone.
