I knew the custom furnishings would require the same discerning eye and level of expertise to ensure my vision would become a reality. Collaborating with the experts at Custom Creations on such tedious details as the thickness of the round-over edge on the dining table sabots and the accuracy of the bed carving drawings, allowed for my desired vision to become a reality.” – KATIE SCOTT, Principal, Katie By Design

EDITOR’S LETTER

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

INSPIRATION

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

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

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

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

memo AMY MCANALLY PUBLISHER

Luxe Interiors + Design Houston has been busy partnering with clients for some fantastic events over the past few months. First, we celebrated the newly remodeled Kitchen & Bath Concepts showroom at The Houston Design Center. Guests perused the fully functioning kitchens by SieMatic and Wood-Mode, and enjoyed cooking demonstrations and light bites by chefs from Gaggenau, Sub-Zero and Wolf. The opening of the Modern Showhouse was another great event, where attendees toured the highly anticipated project by husband-and-wife team Nina Magon of Contour Interior Design and Karun Magon of Capital Builders. The home was staged with furniture provided by BeDesign and Internum, with art from Off The Wall Gallery. Lastly, Luxe hosted the opening of the Piney Point Showcase Home. Completed by Joy Homes, Robert Dame and Bankston May Associates, the expansive French Normandy-style château in Piney Point Village was fully furnished with the help of the project’s wonderful sponsors. Stay tuned for our continuing 2nd Tuesday events each month at The Houston Design Center. We hope to see you there. Cheers!

CONTRIBUTORS

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

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

CHELSAE ANNE

Photographer / Palm Beach

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

LX_COM11_Contributors.indd 108

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

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 113

11/21/16 12:47 PM


RADAR / NEW GUARD ALEXANDER M. REID ⊲

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

▼ MEREDITH ELLIS

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

⊳ MAX HUMPHREY

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

MAGGIE CRUZ ▲

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 114

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

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

IN HER WORDS: “Our aesthetic is both elegant and very livable, and our approach is one of soft-handed guidance where we collaborate and listen to our clients.”

RADAR / DEBUT

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

portrait: alberto laccourreye.

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

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

LX_COM11_Radar_Crockford.indd 120

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

#INSTACRUSH @alison_avenue

WHO: Natalie Alison Hewes, a former New Yorker who developed a knack for design upon relocating to Houston, where she finally had more than a few square feet of living space. After honing a glamorous, offbeat style in her new apartment, friends came calling— and now, as a result, she also takes on interiordecorating projects as a side hobby through her developing brand, Alison Avenue. WHAT: Hewes’ white-and-bright feed is a blend of elements that capture her eye, whether it’s a light-filled interior, a chunky woven textile, a sculptural plant or an intriguing Houston boutique. She delights in imperfections, travel and nature.

IN HER WORDS: “Houston has the coolest design culture. There are incredible vintage stores, thrift shops and boutiques—an overwhelming amount of inspiration, which I enjoy capturing. These unique viewpoints are igniting a cultural change translating to the design world and overall feel.”

OPEN HOUSE SHOPS + SHOWROOMS

COLLABORATION MARIE FLANIGAN X MADISON LILY In her interiors projects, renowned Houston designer Marie Flanigan has an elegantly tailored approach to organic eclecticism. It’s a dreamy aesthetic expertly applied to her latest endeavor: her second collaboration with Houston luxury rug company Madison Lily. The first addition to Flanigan’s MFI collection in three years, the line of 10 rugs was worth the wait; this time, she takes a beautifully minimalistic, painterly spin on water, landscapes, plants and botanicals. Made by artisans in India and Nepal using hand-carded, hand-spun wools, silks, linens and other natural fibers, each piece is alluringly graphic and lacks no shortage of dimension. “I wanted to celebrate a combination of raw and refined elements, such as nettle and bamboo mixed with silk,” Flanigan says. “I love how interesting and textural that contrast can be.” madisonlily.com

Texas’ newest design shops emphasize artisan craftsmanship and rich heritage, warming the heart and home this winter. At interior designer Rachel Horn’s eponymous Austin shop, Rachel Horn Interiors (1201 Baylor St.), the dual Mexico-Austin resident takes a black, white and metallic spin on Mexican tradition in hand-wrought tables, punched-iron lanterns and other treasures crafted by artisans in her studio south of the border. A romantic take on Mexican design is found in Dallas at designer Cristina Lynch’s Mi Golondrina (2727 W. Mockingbird Ln., Suite 103), where embroidered floral pillows have been hand-stitched by women in that country. And, in Houston’s Birch Modern Mercantile (1856 Fountain View Dr.), shop owners Katie Ingram and Shelley Kaplan mix goods from around the world: Handmade saddle-leather furnishings from Garza Marfa stand alongside hand-molded resin pieces from San Francisco-based Tina Frey Designs and Mirth caftans hand-sewn in India. 132 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Every venture the “soul sisters” behind multidisciplinary Dallas design firm Swoon, The Studio undertake—from branding and art direction to graphic and interior design—metamorphoses to have a distinctly refined, organic aesthetic. “Well-made, thoughtful pieces with natural materials, texture and layers are hallmarks of our work, whether we’re branding a piece for a high-end retailer or restaurant or the interiors for a residential or hospitality client,” says Samantha Reitmayer Sano, who founded Swoon in 2009 and brought on friend Joslyn Taylor as principal of interiors. Today, Swoon’s client roster includes some of the city’s most iconic companies, like Neiman Marcus, Highland Park Village and the historic Adolphus Hotel, where the duo served as the dream team behind the recent renovation of the ground floor and spa. “There’s a real sense of possibility in Dallas that comes with it being a relatively new city,” Taylor says. “There really are no boundaries, and the result is a community of creatives and designers who are incredibly warm and collaborative. It’s a rare and beautiful thing.” Read below for their favorite haunts in the city they call home. swoonthestudio.com 9 a.m. We have four kids between the two of us, so coffee is our lifeblood. Hit up Weekend, the coffee shop at The Joule hotel, for a killer almond-milk latte or our new obsession—a dirty chai latte (chai with a shot of espresso). 10 a.m. Neither of us can get enough of the brasserie CBD Provisions, also at The Joule. The daily menu is great, but in particular it has a fantastic brunch. We dream about the Carolina rice bowl, which has green garlic-pecan pesto, poached egg and ricotta. We’re also obsessed with the avocado toast and the house-made kombucha.

11:30 a.m. On your way out of the hotel, swing through Tenoversix to browse the spot-on roster of indie designers like Rachel Comey. Then stroll down the street to Forty Five Ten to take home covetable brands like Co, Le Labo and Annie Costello Brown. 1 p.m. Head to the Dallas Design District and check out Scout Design Studio and Sputnik Modern, both of which are known for inspired vintage furnishings and accessories. You’ll discover pieces like a giant taxidermy giraffe at Scout, and at Sputnik, you’ll encounter some of the most thoughtfully curated midcentury pieces we’ve ever come across. 2:30 p.m. Get some sunshine at Klyde Warren Park, where kiddos can play in the splash park and nosh on ice cream sandwiches from the Coolhaus food truck while grown-ups enjoy an afternoon glass of wine and a cheese plate at Socca Mediterranean Café in the Dallas Museum of Art. Sit on the patio, facing the park. 4 p.m. All rested? Time to explore the Dallas Museum of Art, one of the excellent museums in town. After browsing the permanent collections, continue your art walk at the Dallas Contemporary, which features inspiring rotating exhibits. We still talk about Paola

Pivi’s life-sized bears made completely of acid-hued feathers, which were on display here from April through August. 6 p.m. Oak Cliff is one of our favorite walkable urban neighborhoods for its stellar restaurants, compelling retail and generally cool vibe. Hit up CiboDivino Marketplace for thin-crust pizza on the breezy patio, then pop into Joy Macarons for stylish sweets. Follow up with a visit to our neighbor Set & Co. for the most beautiful mix of home goods in town. 9 p.m. If you’re here on the third Friday of the month, don’t miss Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art. The entire Dallas Arts District comes alive with food trucks, readings, film screenings, live music and special art-related activities that go until midnight. The energy is amazing.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

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

ROMY NORTHOVER ARTIST DESIGNBYNO.COM

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

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

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

SALLY KING BENEDICT

ARTIST SALLYBENEDICT.COM

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

KELLEY JOHNSON ARTIST JOHNSON-KELLEY.COM

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

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 161

FREE AGENT THE PIECE: Noir Lounge Chair THE DESIGNER: Farrah Sit FIND IT: farrahsit.com THE INSPIRATION: Architectural planes, airy silhouettes and sleek edges define the Brooklynite’s Noir series. A cool and clever exploration of “less is more,” the series’ star chair marries an unexpected pairing of steel and woven cotton, proving that opposites are often better when they’re together.

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

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 162

WAYNE PATE ARTIST WAYNEPATE.COM

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

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

MIMI JUNG

ARTIST MIMIJUNG.COM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SALVAGED BEAUTY SARAH WEST

PHOTO: WADE BLISSARD.

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

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

Why work with salvaged materials? People tend to like pieces that tell a story, but especially with new construction, it’s hard to add a sense of history to a space. Bringing in antiques lends patina and character. You can have a drawer handle and see where it’s worn from centuries of use. That kind of context is always appealing. LUXESOURCE.COM / 183

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

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

IN THE

BLACK

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

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

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

bench MARK

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

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

OPEN f lame

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

4 BALL & CHAIN

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

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

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

For these Art Deco-inspired pieces, designer Jessica Ahnert Davis of boutique hardware company Nest Studio proves she isn’t afraid to mix materials, combining chrome or brass joinery with acrylic. The knobs’ notched design recalls the retro lines of old-fashioned radios and microphones while simultaneously maintaining an edgy, contemporary vibe. nest-studio-home.com

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

Kitchen stools tend to skew more utilitarian than glamorous. Not so with the Geisha barstool from Koket.

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

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

KAREN WILLIAMS

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

_LX_COM11_TheReport.indd 192

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK PEACOCK HOME

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

JESSICA HELGERSON

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

window

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

–DON RUGGLES, RUGGLES MABE STUDIO DENVER

–DANIEL REEDY, ONSHORE CONSTRUCTION & DEVELOPMENT JUPITER, FL

“INVEST IN STATEMENT LIGHTING. GOOD LOW-LEVEL LIGHTING IS ALWAYS THE HEARTBEAT OF A WELL-DONE INTERIOR.”

FUSCH ARCHITECTS

Classical design and period detailing come together in the work of architectural firm, Fusch Architects. Currently designing a French estate in the Houston area and revitalizing the historic Dallas Hunting and Fishing Club, Fusch Architects has completed projects throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, in the Houston metro area and nationwide. “When opening my firm in 1976, we had a wide variety of projects including mixed-use developments, condominiums, commercial buildings, churches and more,” says Robbie Fusch, principal and president. “It wasn’t until about 10 years later that I decided to focus on high-end single-family homes.” While clients’ tastes help drive the design direction of each project, Fusch incorporates elements of strong historical architecture to create homes that feel authentic and well defined. “My travels in Europe have been influential to my work as they enable my designs to genuinely reflect their period,” he says. “Most recently, my explorations through France and Belgium have sparked my interest.” Given Fusch’s love of all things European, it comes as no surprise that his dream project is to design a Cotswold village reminiscent of those in South Central England. Although the firm looks to the past as a source of inspiration, it also seeks to meet the needs of today’s clientele with the use of progressive materials and technological advances. “Good design is classic architecture that satisfies the needs of clients for today and tomorrow,” partner Craig Vaughn says.

Robbie Fusch, President Craig Vaughn, Partner 4308 Avondale Avenue, Suite 200 Dallas, Texas 214.696.0152 info@fuscharchitects.com fuscharchitects.com

I enjoy giving families a home for the long run—a design that won’t become outdated or outgrown.

Ask the Expert Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Our firm has established a reputation for authentic European design. Our front elevations, use of materials and attention to detail are what sets us apart from our competitors. What are your favorite styles to work on and why? At age 24, I took my first trip to Europe to attend my English cousin’s wedding, and from that day forward I have been in love with the French and English country styles of architecture.

What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? My greatest success isn’t a particular project or award, but that I have been able to create and maintain such a close relationship with my staff and clients.

Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? We’re not captive to current trends, but if we did have a look, it would be timeless, comfortable, easy living and engaging.

What would be your dream creative project? I love country music, and it would be a dream to have a project in Nashville or Franklin, Tennessee—for a well-published songwriter, of course!

CHAIRMA DESIGN GROUP

“This is where the magic happens” reads the sign on the door at Chairma Design Group. An apt motto for the design studio whose focus is on “co-creating with clients and doing something none of us could do individually,” says principal Cindy Aplanalp-Yates, regarding her team of talented, passionate designers. “It’s such an amazing experience, that it really is like magic.” A life change in her mid-40s brought Aplanalp-Yates to move into interior design as a second career. This, along with her life experience raising a blended family of six children, helped define Chairma’s approach—to craft spaces where deep connections can be fostered. “My real life experiences influence our work as a firm, especially the closeness we have with our clients,” she says. Working primarily in and around Houston, the firm’s portfolio includes intown lofts, high-rises and luxury remodels from The Woodlands, to Katy and Sugar Land. When it comes to process, Chairma’s design team puts on its listening ears, honing in on the intentions and desires of each individual client. From thoughtful details, such as adding an extra-wide hallway to help a family on busy mornings, to reading between the lines when a client says they want a comfortable sofa, and knowing they really want a cozy space for their family—Chairma puts their “magic” to work, creating homes that offer a respite from the outside world, and a renewal for the senses.

ALL ABOUT:

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

Tell us about your color strategy for this dining room. The first selection made was the wallcovering. I knew we would be incorporating pops of color but had not yet chosen what those colors would be, so I wanted a neutral base that would work with anything. What are your tips for bringing color into a home? I incorporate bold color in well-thought-out doses instead of wide swathsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; accessories, art, lamps, small upholstery items and tabletop decorative items are perfect ways to interject shades without dominating a room. When using color, I always try to think in terms of longevity and how someone will feel about a space many years down the road, and I focus on the flow of the home and how it feels going from room to room. How important is color to a design? My personal palette preference leans more to the neutrals, and I prefer that as my base for a room, but color is hugely important and can convey a great deal of information. It can visually lift a room, set the mood and influence the emotions, and it gives an inside perspective on the personality of the homeowner. What trends in color are you currently loving? Neutrals and shades of gray are still very popular and continue to reign as the most requested palette by my clientele.

A wood-and-lacquer buffet from Mecox and chairs in Larsen linen from Culp Associates surround a James Dawson Design-fabricated table.

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

COLOR 101

On the path to color success, you may encounter a few gray areas. To help guide the way, we asked a few Texas professionals about their strategy. Whether you’re looking to make a big statement with a bold wallcovering or simply want to introduce a new hue through a few accessories, the designers share helpful tips on finding and applying the right shades. Chandos Dodson Epley: If color scares you, I recommend starting small. You can add pops of color with throw pillows, art and lamps. That way, when you get tired of that color, your other furnishings are neutral. For this Houston dining room (left), the client wanted turquoise, yellow and lavender. The rest of the home was neutral, and we wanted to make a statement here. The Porter Teleo wallcovering was the perfect combination of an art piece as décor. Mary Anne Smiley: I look at each project as a whole, with color being just one of the many elements I consider when creating the finished space. Sometimes color is dominant, while other times textures, art or furnishings are. In any case, I am always looking for the perfect ending to the design process of each project, with all

LX_TX44_EOD_Color.indd 209

elements blending together beautifully to create the ideal setting for my client. Cynthia Collins: When it comes to incorporating color, narrowing down options is part of the craft. Don’t drag yourself down with all of the possibilities and combinations; make a choice and move forward. Don’t be afraid! In general, look at the fabric, rug, window treatments or wallcovering with the largest pattern in the room, and use colors within that pattern as a starting place. Heather Blue Harkovich: It is fun to experiment with bolder colors in rooms that are less-frequently used, like a powder room or formal dining room. It is wise to select a more soothing color palette in rooms that you are in daily, such as a bedroom or kitchen. A softer palette creates a serene space.

Kitchens ALL ABOUT:

In lieu of upper cabinets, designer Kevin Spearman utilized open shelving in this Houston kitchen. Large windows stream in natural light, while a painted brick wall adds texture without ornamentation. “I love adding elements of the exterior to the interior,” Spearman explains. Barstools from Barclay Butera join an island topped with granite from Walker Zanger; the Kevin Reilly fixture is from Holly Hunt.

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

12/12/16 4:01 PM


In this Dallas home, an appealing tension between old and new exists in the kitchen, where a beamed ceiling plays off cabinetry inlaid with stainless steel—a unique challenge. Designer Cynthia Collins explains, “We started with a very flat-front design, but using the inlay meant we could have more interest and detailing.”

Barone also knocked down a wall between the kitchen and breakfast room and replaced it with a bar, making the kitchen a nice gathering spot for the homeowners. Backsplash tiles from Ann Sacks’ Barbara Barry collection and honed Calacatta marble countertops contribute to the white palette.

COURTNEY HILL FERTITTA Designer

What inspired this design? This Houston kitchen opens to many other spaces, so I needed to keep it neutral yet dressy. How did each element impact the end result? The honed Calacatta marble countertop, Ann Sacks’ framed-tile backsplash by Barbara Barry and honedlimestone pewter flooring create a tailored, understated base. The paneling is quiet, so I needed some movement from the marble on the flat surfaces. And because the cabinets were classic, I added an updated subway tile with a contrasting grout color. With so many white tones, the stainless-steel farm sink really stands out. Tell us how you approach each project. We prioritize a thoughtfully planned and fully functional kitchen. Kitchens are no longer “hideaway” spots but rather shared work/living/utilitarian spaces. A deliberate design is attentive to the most useful appliance-placement and storage options, with beautiful schematic elements and gathering areas for friends and family. In what way do you feel kitchen design is unique? The kitchen is just as important as any other living space. As the place where meals are prepared, families gather and guests mingle, the kitchen can be the cornerstone of any home.

Designer Jennifer Greer Hartmann planned the kitchen in this Austin home to be extremely minimal, with soft taupes and warm whites creating a classic, contemporary aesthetic. ALNO cabinets from Arete European Kitchens feature a champagne-hued lacquered finish, coordinating with the Silestone countertop, while shiplap-paneled walls outline the cabinets. Painted metal beams overhead add another layer of interest.

When designing a kitchen, creating an efficient area for cooking, dining and gathering that’s also beautiful can become the dilemma du jour. Enter these Texas-based kitchen aficionados, who have honed their craft for whipping up spaces with equal measures of form and function. They let us in on a few of their tricks of the trade.

LX_TX44_EOD_Kitchens.indd 215

Jennifer Greer Hartmann: The homeowner of this kitchen (left) wanted to hide functional aspects when not in use, so folding pocket doors conceal the prep and coffee areas, with the pantry and butler’s closet also out of sight. Because the owner—who’s from Australia—desired a contemporary home like those often found in Sydney, we selected champagne high-gloss lacquer to complement the limestone floors and shiplap paint. The house is very modern, but the warmth of these tones makes it inviting.

Kellye Kamp: A highly functional kitchen requires thinking beyond the norm and addressing functionality first and foremost. For example, because the kitchen is often a home’s most populated space, the sink, prep and cooking areas must accommodate more than one person at a time. To that end, oversize workstation sinks with large, single-bowl sinks and built-in cutting boards, colanders, mixing bowls and multipurpose dish racks are available to do double duty as a new (and much-improved) prep area.

Abbey Ragsdale: My business partner, Abby Smith, and I believe kitchens require a more technical approach than other spaces. Each detail affects the next and is just as important, from adjacencies of appliances to materials. Families spend most of their waking hours in the kitchen—for meals, homework, game night and more—so it truly becomes a major focus in the home’s overall story. Kitchen design should not be painted with a broad brush; it must be looked at through a microscope.

Peggy McGowen: My daughter and business partner, Micqui McGowen, and I believe there is no one-size-fitsall formula. However, because kitchens are the “heart of the home,” we design them from a lifestyle-improvement position—to improve family and social life. Function comes first: You won’t love a beautiful kitchen if it’s a difficult space to prepare, cook and clean up. Aesthetically, customize it to your preferences and lifestyle. A professional can help guide and save you time, money and heartache.

Right: Designer Michael Siller preferred the simplicity of a white kitchen for his Houston residence, where shades of platinum, silver and gray “give the antique period furniture an updated feeling,” he explains. Shown here, stainless-steel Kenmore Pro appliances complement the Visual Comfort light fixture and update the wood farm table and dove-gray chairs by Crate & Barrel. Below: “The clients wanted to invest in the artisans who would help make the unique elements of the house,” says builder David Dalgleish, who used local craftspeople for every aspect of this Austin project—including the grainmatched quartersawn-walnut-overlay kitchen cabinets. Fabricated by Joseph Zambarano, the custom cabinetry showcases hardware from Alexander Marchant. Caesarstone countertops are from Architectural Tile & Stone.

ALL ABOUT:

Materials

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

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

Rather than tearing down this staircase in a historic midcentury Austin home, architect David Webber updated it with new steel-plate treads—and was delighted to discover a series of turquoise medallions on the metalwork easily popped off, leaving behind a more simplistic geometric pattern. Lueders limestone flooring runs underfoot.

BEN COATS Home Builder

Tell us about this home’s façade. The inspiration for this Dallas exterior was classic Southern architecture with transitional finishes and accents. We wanted it to feel classic yet fresh and soft. The dark steel front door and front window add contrast and draw attention to the entrance, with warm whitepainted brick for softness. The painted shutters match the limestone headers to add a subtle contrast. We wanted to avoid harsh elements so it feels light. In what ways can materials be used to add detail and interest? An easy way to add interest to a space is to

LX_TX44_EOD_Materials.indd 223

apply texture or color to a ceiling. In this home, we paneled and painted the dining room ceiling with a paint meant for furniture, adding a gold sheen and warmth. Another option is to apply natural white-oak wood to the ceiling, which can change the scale and feel of a room dramatically. How has technology changed the way people think about materials? Our clients are moving toward fully automating everything. Likewise, a breakthrough in building materials is the more durable synthetic alternatives—artificial turf resembling Zoysia or St.

Augustine; quartz and porcelain resembling Calacatta marble; and tile that looks and feels like hardwood floors but with less maintenance. What’s trending in the world of building materials? For outdoor use, our clients are obsessing over artificial turf and pools with retractable covers for safety, and there’s a movement toward bars instead of fireplaces for outdoor entertaining. We are also building homes with rooms featuring glass walls, which slide open for a seamless transition from inside to outside for easy entertaining.

The white-painted brick on the façade of this Dallas home—by architect Paul Turney and builder Ben Coats—serves as a smooth backdrop to stone headers and taupe shutters, which give the house a monochromatic scheme. The door features a large grid pattern that amps up classic details elsewhere, including the slate-hipped roof and Chippendale-style detailing on the second-floor balcony.

Materials are the backbone of every home. However, it’s not just the quality of the materials that carries weight—it’s also the skill and technique of the builders and artisans trusted to work with those materials to bring a project to life. In hopes of narrowing down the choices, we gleaned some insight from a few experts in the worlds of natural stone, wall finishes, steel and more.

LX_TX44_EOD_Materials.indd 225

David Escobedo: For the woodscreen sculpture’s steel frame and the paneled wall in this Austin game room (left), we collaborated with the design team, remaining most integral in the project’s technical aspects. What differentiates us is the ability to design the technical details required for sound and precise fabrication of a concept. Technical design, and the fabrication of that design, is our forte at The Escobedo Group. In general, I look at materials that make sense— not just for the project but for the bigger picture. Because we build projects that stand the test of time, the materials we use require a level of quality resulting in longevity and sustainable beauty. April Graves: Marble, onyx, quartzite, calcite, soapstone and granite have all been classified by the Marble Institute as suitable for countertop usage, so there really is not a wrong option. It’s about being creative with the execution and exploring your options. Aria Stone Gallery works

within each client’s material selection and presents solutions based on the use of the stone selection, making it functional for the installation purpose. Leslie Sinclair: Plasters have become extremely popular for their beautiful, timeless and sophisticated look, but they also have quite a few functional benefits. They are resistant to abrasions, surface cracking and color fading, and certain plasters work as a sound barrier, insulating factor and slight fire retardant. Another favorite is stencils, which can be customized and then easily painted over for a change in look. Peter Rehme: In terms of quality, Rehme Steel Windows & Doors advises homeowners to be mindful of the difference between hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel. Cold-rolled steel will be straighter, allowing for crisper corners and cleaner lines. Moreover, it allows your paint finish to be more durable. We produce our assemblies from American-made 1018 cold-rolled steel.

ALL ABOUT:

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

Architect Jesse Hager, alongside Heather Rowell, undertook a near-total gut renovation of this Houston home, originally designed in the 1970s by well-regarded architect Frank Welch. Massive walls of Texas limestone offer an organizing presence, “breaking things up and providing thresholds and transitions,” Hager explains. Landscape architect Kevin Steed used plantings with a more organic vibe to contrast the architecture’s rectilinear forms.

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON ARCHITECTURE

In designing this Houston home, architects Russell Windham and William Curtis created a mix of intimate rooms and grand, light-filled spaces. A sinuous spiral staircase graces the entry.

LX_TX44_EOD_Architecture.indd 228

this page: windham/curtis photo: nick johnson. opposite: fusch/leidner photo: stephen karlisch. fusch headshot: courtesy fusch architects, inc.

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

THE ART OF ARCHITECTURE

Architecture is critical on many levels, the most obvious being it determines the physical environment in which we live. While there are many architectural styles— from modern to traditional—the best designs seem to consider not only the homeowners but also the surrounding environment. We asked a few renowned Texas pros to divulge some of the influences behind their work. Dick Clark: Every house I design— whether it’s in Austin or California—is affected by its surroundings. Before I start a project, I spend time on the property. My houses are site-specific; in the case of this residence (left), it has amazing views of Austin’s 360 Bridge and of incredible sunsets, which change every night. While the home capitalizes on those views, it also has overhangs that protect the interiors from the intense Texas sun. Cari Walls: My partners, Lionel Morrison and Mark Dilworth, and I think in terms of building blocks of space—proportion, light, volume, repetition, surface, mass and rhythm. Instead of conventional, restrictive floor plans imposing particular patterns of use, Lionel concentrates on fluidity, allowing

LX_TX44_EOD_Architecture.indd 231

everyday activities to happen seamlessly, spontaneously and beautifully. These flexible “hubs” also occur throughout Mark’s work at NorthPark Center, where the introduction of light and volume at key intersections creates truly powerful moments. Gary Furman: As our interactions with our environment become increasingly more virtual, our buildings can offer us a fundamental connection to the world around us. My partner, Philip Keil, and I have always delighted in designing structures that resonate with the forces of nature. Cool breezes through open windows, the play of light filtered through trees, the discovery of vistas upon entry—these are moments that connect us to the physical world.

Above: Architects Juan Miró and Miguel Rivera prioritized preserving the stately old oak trees on this Austin site by placing the house in between them. The architects also created two rooflines—one convex and one concave. The former, toward the front of the house, helps conceal the structure’s size. The upward curves of the latter, meanwhile, create ample window space to fully take in the view of the trees and the cityscape. Right: Architect David Stocker’s contemporary take on classic Georgian architecture for this Dallas home includes a colonnade composed of columns with pareddown capitals and a façade in white-painted brick. “A great home in balance needs four elements: architecture, interior design, landscape and good art,” Stocker says.

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

In this downtown Austin living room by designer Fern Santini, the Art Deco shapes of both the fluted limestone fireplace and subtle sofa silhouette mix well with the club chairs and vintage coffee table. “The Deco lines bring an elegant modernism into the space,” Santini explains.

AT HOME WITH DESIGN

At the end of the day, a house should be a home—filled with furnishings that impart meaning, beauty and comfort. Depending on the homeowners, this can translate into different things for different people, requiring an expert eye to decipher clients’ interests and needs. We invited a few design doyens to shed light on their approach. Elisabeth McCabe: I’m inspired by the European minimalism that works so well with highly edited rooms, bold woodwork and lots of white. As evident in my own living room (left), I also like to pop in a little color with art—something my husband and I love to collect together. With every project, my business partner, Caroline Finkelstein, and I begin with colors, furniture, accessories or art—whatever means a lot personally to a client—and go from there. Janet Rice: Living spaces should be designed for living. These rooms should be pleasing to the eye, inspiring, inviting and 100-percent functional. I am a big believer in using every room in one’s home— this means fabrics should be sumptuous and soft, books and magazines should be available to read, and candles should be lit so a beautiful fragrance fills the room, with side tables thoughtfully placed throughout.

LX_TX44_EOD_LivingSpaces.indd 241

John Phifer Marrs: A well-designed living space offers an oasis of peace in our crazy, chaotic world. Key elements include seating that is comfortable for the person using the room, good lighting with optional levels of brightness (depending on the activity) and a well-stocked bar (just kidding)! To make a space functional, it’s as simple as having a sturdy table within reach of your chair, adequate lighting close at hand and the perfect pillow for your head or back. Laura Umansky: We focus on creating classically current interiors. In essence, we design gorgeous residences based in performance furnishings and fabrics. Families want to enjoy living in their rooms, not just looking at them! Case goods must be of high quality and made of durable materials, and fabrics must stand up to everyday use. We use fabrics from Thibaut, Kravet and JF Fabrics, which have all partnered with Crypton Home for durability. Livable luxury can be achieved with thoughtful planning.

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON FASHIONING A QUALITY LIVING SPACE

“My inspiration came from residential designer Gregory Brooks’ beautifully designed house and the clients’ desire to finally have a home that reflected their personalities,” designer Mark Cravotta says, describing this Austin house. The residence’s primary materials—such as Douglas fir and concrete— provided a strong backdrop for the chosen color palette, including the living room’s soft, luminous green.

LX_TX44_EOD_LivingSpaces.indd 242

this page: cravotta room photo: ryann ford. styling: adam fortner. opposite: cravotta headshot: matt lankes.

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

Do you often customize furnishings? Custom pieces are a big part of our work and often solve particular problems. We customdesigned the desk/shelving unit within this Austin space to accommodate the couple’s computer work, double as a display for their books and art objects and stand on its own as a thing of beauty. What determines the mood of a room? We aim to design every room, including living rooms, to suit our clients. It really depends on the focus and different types of usage. I like to see a variety of lighting options, both overhead and with lamps, offering a number of ways to dial in the mood. Tell us your thoughts on form and function. I believe homes should be lived in, and materials should be durable and become more beautiful over time. Our recommendations are based on each material’s intended purpose. I let function drive the conversation—making sure it all works and will last. Then you can work on the most beautiful expressions of those elements. And what inspires you personally? There are so many brilliant architects and designers whose work inspires me. I love to experience and study restaurants and boutique hotels. But without a doubt, travel provides the richest access to inspiration.

What key elements should an outdoor living space have? It needs to be large enough to furnish so it can be used. We also make sure it’s oriented properly to be shaded and not subject to direct sun. And, we find a way to generate a breeze, usually with a ceiling fan, making it enjoyable (and tolerable) even on the hottest days.

How is your work unique? My partners, Audrey Maxwell and Bob Borson, and I constantly explore ways to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces by designing rooms with access to a corresponding exterior area (such as a screened porch), which encourages using them and makes them integral to daily life.

Tell us about this poolside space. This Dallas home’s outdoor dining area blurs the distinction between interior and exterior space, providing a comfortable poolside spot for alfresco dining and socializing. It is finished like the home’s interior: white walls and ceilings, concrete floors and blonde maple cabinets and doors. Complementary furniture and art truly make it an outdoor room.

Left: This 2,400-square-foot infinity-edge pool in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas was a feat of engineering that required architect Michael Malone to get an assist from Mesa Design Group and White Rock Pools. Malone balanced the residence’s modern elements with its uniquely shaped site and the homeowners’ serenity-seeking, private personas. Below: This Houston home’s heated saltwater pool accommodates lap swimming and children’s birthday parties, even in winter. A sheltered seating area and well-trimmed lawn extend the possibilities, with poolside lounges and patio furniture by Janus et Cie. Oversize windowpanes and steel doors infuse a more modern feel to the Regency-style home, conceived by architect Reagan Miller and built by Scott Frasier.

The rear loggia of this Dallas residence houses a sofa and chairs by Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iron Works covered in Perennials fabric as well as a wrought-iron lantern designed by architect Robbie Fusch and fabricated by Arte De Arquitectura De Mexico. Landscape architect Harold Leidner hand-set the limestone flooring with a cabochon tile inset and perimeter band.

This Texas Hill Country weekend home—conceived by architect David Shiflet and constructed by builder David Dalgleish—serves as a camp-style retreat. Its indooroutdoor living area by designer Blair Burton includes a wooden table and benches from the Marburger Farm Antique Show, creating a perfect spot for a quick snack or casual meal. Chandeliers are from Chateau Domingue; the sectional is from Anthony’s Patio.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

Texas weather affords residents the opportunity to spend time outdoors nearly year-round, requiring exterior living spaces well-equipped for living, dining and gathering. With so much pressure placed on these alfresco areas, we asked a few local authorities on the subject how they create outdoor living spaces that soar above the rest. Blair Burton: We gave this Texas Hill Country home’s indoor-outdoor space (above) a rustic, not-too-perfect look. We found the table and chairs separately while antiquing. Initials that matched the husband’s name had been carved into the bench years before, so it felt very fortuitous! The antique chandeliers contributed to the rustic feel, while the sectional adds comfort and durability. Situated around the fireplace, this space provides a view of the river below, accommodating the homeowners’ desire to live outside while at the river. Laura Tyson: With outdoor space design, comfort is priority. Because we’re in Texas, there should also be shade. And if you can screen it, you’ve hit a home

LX_TX44_EOD_Outdoor.indd 273

run. I grew up with a screened porch, and there’s nothing better. An outdoor living space shouldn’t just be a pretty picture from your window; it should also be a destination that pulls you outside. And once you get there, you should have durable, comfortable furniture that doesn’t require a lot of fuss to enjoy.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Blair Burton, Laura Tyson, Russell Windham

Russell Windham: My partner, William Curtis, and I approach the site of each residence as the project as a whole, meaning we design the garden and the house simultaneously. The layout of the garden is just as important as the layout of the house. The walls of the building and rooms define the garden, so the landscape is conceived before the house. It is the only way to idealize both.

THE INSTITUTE OF CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE & ART (ICAA) will begin an innovative middle school program, New Heights: Discovering Classical Architecture, in San Antonio. New Heights seeks to familiarize students with the history of architecture, the role and responsibility of architects, and professional options in a variety of architectural fields. “The goal of New Heights is to provide students with an architectural vocabulary, an understanding of composition and design, and an opportunity to consider a future career in architecture or the related arts,” says ICAA President, Peter Lyden. “We aim to inspire a new generation to become leaders of architectural preservation and urbanism.”

For more information about the ICAA, please visit our website:

CLASSICIST-TEXAS.ORG or email: INFO@ICAATEXAS.ORG

We sincerely thank our statewide sponsors whose financial support allows us to maintain the high level of quality programs and events that are offered across the state.

INSPIRATION FOUND

ANIMAL INSTINCTS WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY S. CHEVALIER

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