EDITOR’S LETTER

This issue is largely dedicated to homegrown design and to the independent makers and companies who are dialing into the made-in-America movement. To be sure, we live in a time where there are no clear-cut guidelines in design (perhaps there never were). Thanks to globalization, social media and the flood of visuals that pass our eyes daily, the sartorial choices we make for our homes are broad and vast, as they should be. Yet there is no denying the underlying current of old-school craftsmanship permeating the landscape. Call it “Americana Chic.” Stamp it “Made in America.” Today, homeowners are embracing all things artisanal, authentic and local. They want to know where the objects being brought into their homes are made and by whom. Makers in cities across the country (who we happily uncover in every issue of Luxe) are responding with thoughtfully crafted forms and materials that appeal to the new sensibility. Ultimately, of course, 21st-century design is a mix; a multicultural mash-up of ideas, with, perhaps, a pinch of Florence, a dose of Athens and, for good measure, a smattering of Detroit.

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

LAURA MAUK

Writer / Washington, D.C. What made you want to become a writer? Curiosity. I love finding out why individuals think the way they do. I also enjoy stringing words together in what I hope is a painterly way that gives people understanding or lets them see something differently. If I could interview anyone, it would be… Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frank Lloyd Wright or Donald Judd. They were all revolutionaries with such unique visions and strong characters. Each of them led an interesting life, making iconic art and architecture in authentic and thoughtful ways. Is there anything intriguing you currently in the world of design? I love the way design continues to connect to nature with lots of glass, sunlight and simple, organic materials. Form and texture have evolved and, as a result, I feel that buildings and furniture today are much more dynamic. Photographer / New York

If you could shoot anywhere in the U.S., where would it be? I would love to have the opportunity to experience, and also photograph, James Turrell’s Roden Crater in Arizona. His work is all about light, space and how we as viewers perceive our surroundings. Most memorable Luxe assignment: A Hamptons house with the talented Jennifer Post. Light is a critical feature for every architectural or interiors shoot and, in this case, the changing weather conditions worked perfectly throughout our day—cloudy or sunny when we needed it! What type of architecture inspires you? Truly bespoke structures that elegantly solve problems and create energetic, livable spaces. I’ve had a longtime collaboration with architect Ali Tayar, and the houses he has designed—from Rhode Island to Beirut—embody this approach with refinement and finesse. Documenting these environments is both challenging and invigorating.

COM_LX6_Contributors_098.indd 98

JOE FLETCHER

Photographer / San Francisco Biggest influences: Creatives in the worlds of art, photography and film, especially the work of Edward Burtynsky, Robert Polidori, Thomas Demand and Jeff Wall. Most exciting thing happening in design today: The amount of design that’s shared worldwide via social media. What type of architecture do you find most impactful? Quiet, minimalistic architecture—designs that let nature do the talking. If I could splurge on anything… It would be on a trip to Greece for my family so we can enjoy the turquoise sea and fried cheeses in the shade. Or a piece by Thomas Demand.

LINDA HAYES

Writer / Colorado Favorite Luxe interview: It was for a home on Vancouver Island. On an early meeting with the architect, Brian Hemingway, the owner of the house watched him take out a pen and just start drawing; he told me that observing him was such a magical part of the process. The image that conjured up has always stuck with me. My biggest design influence comes from… The process of architecture and its ability to transform the simplest idea into an elegant, functional structure. It reminds me that creativity is about both the journey and the destination. Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Charles Smith, owner of Charles Smith Wines in Walla Walla, Washington. He’s a bigger-thanlife personality, an intuitive thinker and a brilliant marketer. He led the recent design of his new Seattle winery, as well as the restoration of his midcentury house, with local architect Tom Kundig. Impressive!

THE ULTIMATE RESIDENTIAL TEAM, SIMMONS ESTATE HOMES, DELEO & FLETCHER DESIGN AND CLAFFEY POOLS COLLABORATED TO CREATE THIS SUPERB SOUTHLAKE ESTATE.

FOYER/ATRIUM REAR WALL:

The foyer features a custom floor-to-ceiling steel unit that creates a breathtaking focal point to the raised rear courtyard fountain. The arched steel door introduces a luminous atrium space that blends traditional Tuscan style with transitional, modern design. A combination of native Lueders cut stone, cream limestone window and door accents and clay tile roofing comprises a wellblended and classic palette of materials. The courtyard consists of Lueders stone raised walls, limestone capping, ivorycolored concrete and grass and natural planting accents.

DINING/WINE ROOM: This dining and wine room features vintage French Quarter travertine flooring, a geometric, handcrafted coffered ceiling with pecky cypress wood and a custom driftwood patina finish, a floor-to-ceiling glass wall displaying chilled wine storage, a cut stone, dry-stacked accent wall, custom wire rack shelving with wood cabinetry and expansive windows to allow for natural lighting.

BACKYARD: The separate fountain was designed to be the focal point from the front foyer. This quaint outdoor living area of the yard provides a cozy fire feature accented with a blue glass media center to tie back into the materials surrounding the pool. The water bowls provide a sleek stream of water and a breathtaking view from all angles of the home. The native custom blend of Lueders stone that was used on the home was introduced to the fountain and landscape walls as well. Artificial grass accents were added throughout the design for a unique source of greenery.

POOL AREA: This backyard oasis was designed to be an extension and inspiration of the home. The pool coping features Lueders limestone and the surrounding decks are textured and stamped concrete, along with a travertine paver overlay in the loggia. The blue tones of the glass tile featured at the spa and pool waterline complement the aqua blue Pebble Sheen finish of the pool. Luminous blue glass beads were incorporated throughout the finish to add a touch of sparkle to the waters. The black battered slate water feature wall not only adds a contemporary flair to the overall design, but also provides the client with a white noise effect.

STUDY: A modern, industrial, masculine study was the concept shared with the homeowner for this space. He wanted to be in a relaxed setting, surrounded by a special collection of heirloom books handed down by past generations. The modern, linear fireplace feature wall blends a textural stone mixture of pewter, charcoal and cream limestones. The antique reclaimed-wood beams and dark walnut cabinetry create a backdrop for the handsome furnishings.

ENTRY: The entry is a sophisticated palette that meets natural, rustic textures. The vintage French Quarter travertine defines the entry with a chevron pattern that highlights the gallery groin vaults, which define the architecture. The beautiful natural light in the atrium highlights the modern abstract art and classic entry table, introducing a transitional statement that is carried throughout the interior of the home.

RADAR WITH THE DEMAND UP FOR LOCALLY CRAFTED FURNISHINGS, FITTINGS AND DÉCOR, AMERICAN ARTISANS AND CRAFTSMEN ARE ANSWERING THE CALL.

LXCOM_Radar_Made_In_America_107.indd 107

1/21/16 6:49 PM


HOME GROWN FURNITURE PRODUCTION RETURNS STATESIDE IN WHAT IS PROVING TO BE A REBIRTH OF THE AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN. WRITTEN BY MIEKE TEN HAVE / PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ

or American furniture production, the yen for substantive, enduring quality— something commonplace only decades ago—has certainly reached a fever pitch in a day where genuineness in products is all but profuse. This nostalgic zeitgeist is ushering in a new wave of makers from various disciplines and perspectives, each bound by the desire to create in unique, original ways. “Design is the key,” says Sara Ossana of Warren, Rhode Island-based O&G Studio. “We’ve tapped into the idea that good design could save the continuity of craftsmanship.” Artist and furniture craftsman Ian Stell of New York City, known

LXCOM_Radar_Made_In_America_107.indd 108

for his highly unorthodox, mesmerizingly sculptural pieces, simply calls this widespread craving for authenticity an “American design renaissance.” “There’s a competition that has been intensifying,” he says, “and it’s pushing both quality and originality.” But what is American furniture design today? According to Brooklyn-based designer Asher Israelow, it is not bound by a style but rather an ethos. “There is no aesthetic correlation,” he says, “but it is aspirational; it’s forward-thinking. It’s reinventing the wheel. American designers are not necessarily bogged down by traditional craft techniques and apprenticeships that perhaps

our European counterparts are.” Israelow was studying architecture in school when on a whim, he took up woodworking while completing his thesis. “I’m entirely self-taught with wood. It became an obsessive hobby,” he says. Instead of becoming an architect, Israelow shifted gears to furniture because he believed it would provide more creative license. It is a circuitous route to furniture production that many young designers echo. Los Angeles-based Sabin Ousey was working in sales at Lawson-Fenning when he began making furniture for his own apartment as a creative outlet, prompting him to open his own company last January. His collection pays

homage to various viewpoints, from Paul McCobb to Spanish Colonial motifs. “America, particularly California, lacks centuries of history, so it gives us an opportunity to forge a new aesthetic,” says Ousey. “Rather than copying tradition, we are playing with historic motifs. That is how new genres and trends emerge.” New York interior designer Eddie Lee finds an egalitarian quality in today’s design scene. “Furniture makers are coming from all different backgrounds these days,” he says. “That’s a very American concept.” Stephen Antonson, the Brooklyn plaster master who references Giacometti and Gio Ponti in his sculptural line of work, thinks there is something

LXCOM_Radar_Made_In_America_107.indd 109

to this “design first” ingenuity that separates the successful American designer. “You can go to the design shows and say, ‘oh, there’s the guy that studied woodworking in school: he’s made the most amazing dovetail you’ve ever seen,’ but it’s rather uninspired design-wise,” he says. Like Israelow and Ousey, Antonson never studied plaster or furniture making in school. “I think there’s a streak of naiveté that allows good designers to do weird things, to be open to doing something backward. That’s where innovation happens. You’re not trying to make this boring, perfect thing that is like all the other boring, perfect things.” Ty Best of Chicago’s Caste Design,

None of this is to say that design traditions do not inform the current American furniture marketplace. Stickley, the pioneer of Mission and American Arts and Crafts furniture, has been around for over a century and has changed hands only once—from the original Stickley family to the Audi family in 1974—all the while employing their original, traditional woodworking techniques. That is not to say that the Manlius, New York-based company hasn’t propelled forward with every generation; Aminy Audi, the CEO of Stickley, credits this to the company’s diversification and a resistance to laurelresting. “We’ve added many different styles, from updated traditional to midcentury modern collections,” she says, adding, however, that it is the education of the consumer that matters most.

Clockwise from top: Los Angeles’ Sabin taps local craftsmen to manufacture its made-to-order offerings; the Rexford cabinet is shown. Black walnut and solid brass inlay comprises the Neversink table by Asher Israelow of Brooklyn. From the mind of interior designer Brad Ford, Field + Supply is a yearly modern makers craft fair in High Falls, New York; the U bench by Luur Studio, sold through The Future Perfect, is an example of what’s in store for fair goers. A peek at Israelow’s process.

who formerly had a life and career in the fashion industry, also echoes the sentiment: “It sounds sort of Pollyanna, but I never knew about the possibilities of what could go wrong; I went into it head first without any hesitation.” Best’s refined, hand-hewn pieces, often in weighty materials like bronze and marble, are nationally distributed by Holly Hunt. He finds the isolation of rural Montana instead of community hotbeds like Brooklyn or Los Angeles to be the best source of unfiltered inspiration. “I think if I had more contemporaries opining on my designs, my work wouldn’t be so avant-garde,” he says.

1/21/16 6:04 PM


“When people understand the work and quality behind one of these pieces, they realize it is a lifetime investment. It is something they can pass on to a future generation.” O&G Studio is a contemporary example of modernizing a deeply ingrained American motif—the Windsor chair, whose roots stem from our earliest English colonists. Ossana and partner Jonathan Glatt electrify the genre with unexpected colors and proportions. “It’s something intrinsic to the American design community,” Ossana says, “our history allows us to question authority.” New York-based interior designer Brad Ford, who has become a kind of pied piper for independent craftsmanship, says, “The U.S. has become one of the most dynamic places for burgeoning design talent.” Last October, Ford held his second-annual Field + Supply fair in High Falls, New York. “Growing up in a small town in Arkansas and being a creative kid, I always loved going to the arts and crafts fairs,” he says. “It created a sense of community that is now so often lacking.” Ford decided to take this concept and elevate it by cherry-picking some of the best American designers across various disciplines, like Israelow, Apparatus and The Future Perfect. “With Field + Supply, we want the work to be serious but the experience to be anything but,” he says, adding, “It is important that design not be alienating. Consumers are more and more responding to the meaning and soul of something that is made by hand. It automatically separates itself from other mass-produced furnishings.” Ford is so confident in the shifting consumer paradigm that this fall, he opened Fair, a showroom at the New York Design Center highlighting elevated craft and design, representing many of the American designers he curated for Field + Supply. No matter the aesthetic, whether historically referential or avant-garde, the independent American furniture maker offers a quality that an outsourced big-box manufacturer simply can’t. “My clients want to understand and know the object that they have a personal relationship with; our local makers give us that,” says interior designer Celerie Kemble, who is deeply involved in keeping artisan traditions afloat—particularly with The Alpha Workshops, the nation’s only nonprofit organization providing creative HIV-positive individuals with industry-specific training and employment in the decorative arts. “People are increasingly caring about these pieces that they live with. Furniture is a very intimate thing, and so, too, should be the process.”

INFORMED BY HIS VORACIOUS APPETITE FOR TRAVEL, JIUN HO’S SCULPTURAL LINE OF FURNITURE CELEBRATES AN ANNIVERSARY.

Above: In his San Francisco studio, designer Jiun Ho stands near one of his No More Play tables, part of the Jiun Ho Collection V line and inspired by Alberto Giacometti’s sculpture of the same name.

For Jiun Ho, the San Francisco designer behind the furniture collection that bears his name, it all comes down to narrative. “I want to tell a story,” he says of the line, now celebrating its 15th anniversary. More often than not, the stories stem from his travels (he spends at least three months a year traveling the world, with recent stops in Kyoto and Sicily). “I take a lot of pictures to remind me of my experiences,” he notes. “There are times when I look at things and say ‘that could be a base for a dining table’ and there are times when I have to look at the photo, take a step back and create from there.” He points to the Maras chair in his newly introduced Jiun Ho Collection V as an example. “If you look at the lines of the chair and the stonework found at Machu Picchu and Sacsahuamán in Peru, you can see where the inspiration comes from.” The rest of the 16-piece collection similarly draws on Ho’s wide-ranging travels and experiences, as well as weaves together the narrative threads of previous introductions and makes graceful allusions to modern art. When first launching his business, though, the designer’s primary objective was not building a furniture brand, but rather to create unique spaces and user-friendly experiences. Then a client asked him if he would sketch some furniture. “I said, ‘Sure, I can give it a try,’›” he recalls. “I came up with 35-40 pieces.” Connecting with a factory based in Southern California, Ho began manufacturing the pieces (most of which have been made in the United States ever since) and a brand was born. As the company has evolved, so has Ho’s approach. “We create the trends; we don’t let them drive us,” he says. “We focus on timeless, elegant shapes and forms and emphasize the tranquility, balance and pureness of the pieces. That, and attention to detail, is what’s important to us.”

HISTORY REPEATING AN ICONIC AMERICAN ESTATE SERVES AS A MUSE FOR WILDWOOD LAMPS & ACCENTS’ LATEST COMPENDIUM OF LIGHTING.

ARCHITECTURAL ANTIQUES: COURTESY AUTHENTIC PROVENCE.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS PHOTOGRAPHY BY CLAUDIA URIBE

Steeped in rich, historical references, the Biltmore Estate has been inspiring design and architecture since its reveal in 1895 by George Washington Vanderbilt II, grandson of famed industrialist and philanthropist Cornelius Vanderbilt. The 250-room French Renaissance château set upon 8,000 acres of pristine Ashville, North Carolina, land was designed as a country retreat for the family and remained so well into the 20th century. With certainly no shortage of inspiration to draw from—the house itself features over 100,000 square feet comprised of 35 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms and 65 fireplaces— the artisanal team behind Wildwood Lamps & Accents turned to the estate as a muse for their most recent collection, receiving unparalleled access to the pieces that made this sprawling house a home. One such piece uncovered during the brand’s creative pursuit was an ancient cinnabar box belonging to George’s wife, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser Vanderbilt. Quickly recognizing the potential in the raised floral relief etching, the Wildwood team developed big plans for the motif: Aptly named after the lady of the house, the resulting Edith lamps (shown) are conveyed in three colorways that each take on a different persona. The Edith lamp in Red, for instance, reflects a traditional Asian-like feel, while the Powder Blue hue professes a more serene garden-esque vibe; Oyster proves to be the chameleon of the group, able to live in both modern and traditional environments. All flaunting brushed finishes, modern silhouettes and sleek drum shades, this versatile collection effusively transcends aesthetics, genres and eras—taking its place as a graceful classic with a firm foothold in today’s interiors.

ATHENS, GEORGIA-BASED CREATOR SUSAN HABLE LENDS HER DESIGN TALENT AND ARTISTIC VISION TO A CHIC NEW HOME COLLECTION. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY LACY MORRIS PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRIS BRANTLEY/WHITE ORANGE PRODUCTIONS

You are involved in a little bit of everything—painting, textiles, furniture, interiors. What led you to where you are today? I’ve always been an artist, and after working for several small businesses, mostly in jewelry, I realized that it was time to start my own design company. My sister, Katharine Hable Sweeney, and I launched Hable Construction in New York City in 1999, but in 2009, I decided to make the move to Athens. This was an eye-opening experience in that I realized how productive having my own studio was for my art. Describe your design aesthetic. I don’t play by the rules and I don’t discriminate where I turn to for inspiration—one day it’s Egyptian metalwork and the next it’s a Japanese kimono. I look to different cultures for inspiration in my color palettes and patterns. Tell us about your relationship with Hickory Chair. We started working together about six years ago on an exclusive fabric collection, and we’ve grown from there. Our common goals were to create quality products and make as many pieces domestically as possible. Why do you think it’s so important to keep production stateside? It is crucial for me to see the furniture being prototyped with my eyes on the product, and I work with the designers and engineers to make sure that all of the details that make the pieces special are being executed as they should. It’s such a luxury to see the hands that go into making each piece of our collection. We love the blue mirrored console for Hickory Chair’s sister company, La Barge (shown). It’s part of 25 new pieces we are adding to the original collection for the brand, and it is made with gilded wood and blue glass. I had seen that blue shade in a few midcentury pieces, but nothing current; we searched all over until we finally tracked it down abroad. I’m crazy about simple design that is also chic, and I think this geometric piece fits the bill and would be fantastic in a foyer. What’s next? An additional collection for Hickory Chair will come later this year. The pieces are incredible, with a lot of new silhouettes, and our focus continues to be on the sculptural aspect of each design. Visually, the new collection will tell a more transitional, modern story. Incorporating an artistic approach to design, I work hard to let the tiniest of details speak for the entire product.

Why hardware? I was attracted to the partnership with Rocky Mountain Hardware because of the high-quality products they produce—handcrafted hardware made with time-honored casting methods. It was a pleasure to work with all of the talented artisans that created these pieces. What was it about Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates that inspired you? I moved to Los Angeles when I was 11 years old and it was then that I was first exposed to midcentury modern design. The Trousdale area boasts amazing midcentury architecture created by such a diverse group of architects. What I loved about these

homes in contrast to the boxy apartments that I was accustomed to in New York was that they had clean lines, open floor plans and, in a lot of cases, an abundance of glass. They were like the glamorous homes I had seen in Hollywood movies. And this collection represents that. Tell us more about the artistry and techniques. At Rocky Mountain, they still cast and finish each piece by hand, which is so impressive; they really bring to life this high level of artistry. With Trousdale, we wanted to generate products that married that craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic. The texture came out of wanting a more tactile experience with each piece, as well as serves as a way to visually emphasize the handcrafted nature. Give us a peek at your creative process. It’s a combination of sketching, looking at historical references and listening to music. “Hollywood Swinging” by Kool & the Gang was definitely inspirational in making this line. Finishes can truly transform a piece—taking something from traditional to totally rock and roll. Take us through the finishes. Trousdale will be offered in all of the Rocky Mountain finishes. Personally, I will be using the bronze light finish on a home I’m building in the Bahamas.

Lenny Kravitz has made no efforts to conceal his passion for interiors—establishing New Yorkbased Kravitz Design and producing several successful product lines. His latest collaboration with Rocky Mountain Hardware is yet another notch on his already-impressive design belt. In tune with both the artist’s modern aesthetic and love for classic design, the Rocky Mountain brand was more than prepared to bring Kravitz’s ideas to life. The resulting Trousdale collection combines a powerful ensemble of textures and shapes that culminates in a truly harmonious and showstopping array of hardware. We sat down with Kravitz as he discussed his latest collection.

COCO & DASH

When did Coco & Dash open? We opened the doors to our shop on North Henderson Avenue in September 2014. Why did you choose your location? It’s in a wonderful little neighborhood of interesting shops and restaurants that are all independently owned and unique. It’s unlike anywhere else in Dallas. What products do you offer? We’re known for our wonderful antiques and original art, but we also offer a great range of accent furniture, chandeliers, one-of-a-kind lamps and home accessories, like pillows by Thurston Reed and John Robshaw, luxe boxes and candles from Addison Weeks, Dash & Albert rugs, and gorgeous handmade lamps by local ceramist Paul Schneider. How is your shop different? Dallas is lucky to have so many great places to shop, but what sets us apart is that as owners we are always present in the shop, and, while luxury-focused, we are intent on providing value to our customers. On the horizon? We’re now offering design services and are currently working on several special events to take place in the coming year, including trunk shows and a design and lifestyle speaker series. Plus, we’ve just unveiled our beautiful new gift area to rave reviews! cocoanddash.com

“Matthew John Winters is one of my favorite Austin artists. He has an incredible eye for detail and incorporates a thoughtful use of materials that captures the spirit and energy of this city. His work is a twist on popular culture that is both graphic and iconic. His pieces just always make me smile, and I am dying to collaborate on a few wallcoverings with him!”

“We have clients at all price points, and we love working with Kravet fabrics because there’s always something for everyone. I also love a showroom where they know your name— relationships mean everything. Lauren Dobbelaer with Kravet is a treasure of a salesperson, and we absolutely could not live without her help on a weekly basis.”

“I always go to the row on Riverfront in the Design District, which is basically the trifecta of cool vintage: John at Antiques Moderne, Jean at Give & Take, and Leslie at Again & Again. They’re all great for different reasons. I prefer vintage and custom to new for the most part, and these are a few of the special places to find pieces with character and history.”

DATE BOOK ASHLEY WOODSON BAILEY

Corpus Christi native and inspirational floral artist Ashley Woodson Bailey devotes much of her time to flying back and forth between longtime home Austin—where she teaches florography classes to “budding” artists—to her new studio in Atlanta. A longtime floral designer whose art is “defined by the flower,” Bailey discovered her talent for still life after a 2012 accident left her unable to continue in her original medium. Her elegant and soulful flower photographs, gracing everything from decorative trays to wallpaper, are available at local shops such as the brand-savvy Supply showroom. And the best part of moving to Georgia is that now the designer gets to play tourist in her own hometown, as she’s detailed here in her optimal day-in-the-Austin-life itinerary. ashleywoodsonbailey.com

9:30 a.m. Head over to By George on Lamar and try on everything— hopefully leaving with something in hand. There’s nothing quite like the customer service or all the clothing you can find under one roof. They carry Dries Van Noten, my favorite brand that I want to live in all day, everyday. Ask for Susie, Renee or Mallory—you’ll never want to go anywhere else. 10:30 a.m. Meet friends for brunch at the delicious and beautiful Josephine House. Since I live in Atlanta now, I try to take advantage of all good Mexican food, so I order huevos rancheros to go with my coffee and/or mimosa. 12 p.m. Go to I Love You Pink to see stylist Farah for a haircut and color—there is no one better in the world.

2:30 p.m. Grab a late lunch at Épicerie. When my husband and I lived in Austin, it was our neighborhood spot. I just love that it feels like home and has all of that delicious cheese and wine. For lunch, I would have frites and French onion soup. 4 p.m. More shopping while I’m in town! I love going to Terra Toys for the kids and Precision Camera for my own toys. I also make a point to keep up with Kick Pleat and Uncommon Objects. The whole town is my shopping district—I don’t mind driving all over the place to get to my favorite spots. 5 p.m. Stop by Keith Kreeger’s studio on Austin’s east side and pick up some new vases for my collection (and also dream up my future dish collection). His studio is always worth a visit. 6:30 p.m. Since I’m already on the east side, I make my way to Justine’s for dinner and drinks with friends.

DATE BOOK PHOTO: COURTESY ASHLEY WOODSON BAILEY.

8:30 a.m. I like to start my morning with a walk to the courtyard from my room at the San José— my favorite place to stay—for a cup of coffee.

NICOLE HOLLIS, SAN FRANCISCO Trademark: I’m all about simplicity with an edge: black, texture, cut and form. Morning routine: Up at 5:30 a.m., I check online auctions, design blogs, The New York Times and email. Post bath and meditation, it’s family time with my husband and 4-year-old; no better way to start the day. Dream office: I surround myself with beautiful objects in my studio, but it’s constantly changing—the smallest thing can inspire. We have huge windows overlooking the San Francisco skyline, and the sunsets are spectacular.

Every single thing… About the Morehead chair is for me. From its hefty, almost updated Parsons-style lines to its somewhat Postmodern personality and early 1980s appeal, it is as much a comfy spot to sit in as it is sculptural art. Silhouette is important… For the overall balance of a room and area of perspective. What’s interesting about these chairs is how strong and grounded their profiles are. Since they are so straight, they work beautifully with curved pieces, like say a Tulip table. Locally made forever pieces… Are what everyone is after these days. Hands down, these pieces are new and now, all while combining a classically architectural frame with a perhaps retro-style fabric choice that speaks to today’s lifestyle. The best way to describe my aesthetic… Is transitional with an edge, which fits to perfection with many of the pieces offered by Highland House. The lines are clean and draped in classicism, but the textiles are fit for modern-day tastes—the perfect mash-up of timeless and fresh.

OUTSIDE THE LINES COLOR REENERGIZES THE HOME’S MOST-FREQUENTED ROOMS FOR STUNNING SPACES THAT SHUN TRADITION AND DARE TO SHAKE THINGS UP. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

Typically, when whipping up a confectionary masterpiece, you don’t want to break the mold; it’s a vital part of keeping those baked goods looking their best. But that’s where following form in the kitchen should end: The best kitchen design is equal parts functional and unexpected, which is why incorporating color is becoming such an important element for a truly remarkable space. So, while crisp white cabinetry in both the kitchen and bathroom isn’t going anywhere soon, mixing in bold hues—whether it’s on the island and appliances in the kitchen or in the form of a statement-making wallpaper in the powder bath—is fast becoming the not-so-secret ingredient to cooking up spaces that will stand the test of time. Here, we celebrate the color-happy palettes and products that are taking the workhorse rooms of the home from bland to beautiful.

HAUTE DISH TAYLOR BORSARI

Designer Taylor Borsari channels Morocco in a Coronado, California, kitchen that dazzles with heavy doses of color, pattern and glammed-out gold. taylorborsari.com Share your design vision. The house was a historic remodel, and the kitchen was a blank space aside from the blue La Cornue oven. My first goal was to integrate the color of the range so it felt like part of an overall story rather than a random dash of color. I think many are nervous to jump into a bold range choice, but this is proof that it can be done without being too overwhelming.

Best ways to introduce pattern into the kitchen? I love patterned backsplashes! This is an area where you can really set the tone for a kitchen, and it’s an obvious area you can have a lot of fun with. Even tonal or monochromatic patterns can add interest. In this kitchen, we also added the carved island, which gave us a nice, ethnic twist to help balance the backsplash, as well as the very colorful range.

COM_LX6_TheLook_KitchenBath_186-194.indd 194

How can color revive and freshen up a kitchen? Color is a great addition to everyday life. White is classic and timeless, of course, but it is also a very safe option. This kitchen is a bit of a hybrid of pattern and color, and I think it is so much more interesting as a result. Plus, as more spaces are openplan these days, embracing a little more color in kitchens allows you to connect rooms more cohesively.

BEAUTY Bringing color into the kitchen doesn’t have to mean looking to the rainbow for inspiration: quiet black matte can be just as impactful and statement-making, as demonstrated by the latest addition to Brizo’s high-fashion faucet line. Featuring a hidden pull-down wand, the Solna faucet makes a big impression with its articulating arm and fashion-forward finish. brizo.com

It’s no surprise that open shelving continues to be wildly popular in today’s kitchen, but for lovers of color, this modern design device is even more effective. Stacking brightly colored bowls, glasses, mugs and ceramics can infuse happy hues into the most neutral of kitchens, making it the perfect solution for homeowners who are looking to play it a little safer but still want to incorporate an element of fun and whimsy into their rooms. This vignette from designer Emily Henderson shows that there are no rules when it comes to styling your shelves; just don’t be shy to share your favorite pieces, regardless of color scheme or theme. stylebyemilyhenderson.com

FREE & CLEAR Snaidero’s newest introduction, Code, in collaboration with designer Michele Marcon, is challenging the kitchen’s status quo with its innovative paint-by-number system. In Code, consumers can opt for cabinets in varying finishes and colors with an easy online ordering system that makes it a breeze to mix and match for infinite layout solutions. It’s about as personal as you can get in the kitchen. snaidero-usa.com

And the best part? The oven can be fabricated in literally any RAL color—Europe’s version of the popular Pantone system—for endless opportunities for inspiration and customization. officinegullousa.com

While Duravit’s L-Cube vanity, designed by Christian Werner, takes its cues from one of geometry’s simplest shapes, it is far from ordinary. Refined down to its most fundamental form, it’s the unassuming details that sing here: from the handle-free façade to the elegant shadow gap between the countertop and the shelving—not to mention the line’s nearly exhaustive color options, like the pretty peachy version shown here. duravit.us

ART Last year’s trend toward metallics continues to be prevalent this year, and it’s easy to see why in the presence of Groupwork’s latest line of fi xtures for the bathroom, Simplify. Australian designer Sarah Trotter’s newest initiative, created in collaboration with architect Murray Barker and artist Esther Stewart, turns something as practical as a towel rack into a veritable work of art. groupworkstudio.com

MAKE A SPLASH Not content to let pristine porcelain tubs lie, the creative team at Aquabrass recently released its Kanvas collection of highly artistic freestanding tubs, each hand-painted and signed by the artist responsible for the striking scenes depicted on their glossy white finishes. From cool graffiti patterns to multicolor mosaic-inspired prints, the limited-edition series promises you’ll have a lot more to soak in than bubbles during bath time. aquabrass.com

Sconces from Galerie des Lampes and an art piece, Jay Hodgins’ Straumi 8, add an air of modern elegance to the room. The chair is custom by Anne Hepfer, upholstered in fabric from Kravet and trim from Samuel & Sons.

This serene vanity space by Toronto designer Anne Hepfer is transformed with color. Benjamin Moore’s Coventry Gray on the cabinetry acts as both statement-maker and pretty neutral against the softer walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Stonington Gray. “The cabinetry is tailored but feminine, with some round detailing to maintain traditional character but in a cleaner more current design,” explains Hepfer. Far from traditional, though, is what she sees as the next big thing in powerful palettes: “I have a feeling that gray is here to stay for a while, so we’re popping spaces with bold hits of color—fuchsia, canary yellow, teal—and, of course, black and white accents. I’m loving the play of contrast and unexpected combinations!” annehepfer.com

A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT MAKES THE KITCHEN AND BATH SOME OF OUR FAVORITE ROOMS IN THE HOME. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

MADE TO ORDER Kitchens and bathrooms spent the first part of their lives inside the home hidden away, separated from the pretty living and family rooms where all the action was happening. Today, though, the kitchen and bath are front and center, with gorgeous new options that transform the rooms into gallery-like spacesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with faucets that double as works of art, tiles that look like they belong in a museum, and lots of great new technology that ensures these spaces are as hardworking as they are good-looking. On the following pages, Luxe examines all the ways the kitchen and bath have been transformed for modern living.

MATERIAL MAGIC For this handsome Santa Monica, California, kitchen by architect May Sung, materials take center stage to great effect thanks to the wonderful grain and texture of the reclaimed wood on the island and perimeter cabinetry, which contrast powerfully with the limestone backsplash tiles from Walker Zanger. “We wanted to create an oasis that is masculine and bring in natural material, without looking like a lumberjack’s cabin,” says Sung. “All of the material had to be genuine and true to that vision.” gsubuda.com

Sure, the classic French press has its own rustic charm, but nothing says, “I’m serious about my coffee,” like a brew station that can deliver rich espresso, sweet lattes and foamtopped cappuccinos at the touch of a button. Miele’s CM6310 Countertop Coffee System does just that and then some; with four user profiles to account for different tastes and an integrated cup warmer, it’s just like having your own barista at home— misspelled name on a paper cup not included. mieleusa.com

SPLASH ZONE

A backsplash represents the founding principles of a kitchen: It should be both beautiful and functional. But, in the case of the New Ravenna tile backsplash in this kitchen by Los Angeles-based designer Kishani Perera, it goes one further: being totally statement-making. Luckily, the vast expanses of white on the cabinetry make it, and the warm, chevron-patterned wood flooring that accompanies it, visually stimulating but not overwhelming. kishaniperera.com

Touches of gold and brass are slowly taking the place of chrome and polished nickel in contemporary bathrooms, thanks to their easy warmth and timeless aesthetic. In this space by designer Casey Keasler, from the creative Portland studio of Casework, brass faucets from Kohler join mirrors—replicas of 1930s French wall consoles from RH—in creating a can’t-look-away sink area. The golden hues are the perfect complement to the cabinetry’s bold teal color. “The brass helped create a certain richness,” says Keasler. “I like a clean, quiet space where everything is done for a reason and not because of a trend.” casework.it

Some of the industry’s top professionals were asked to weigh in on the state of residential renovation. We learned that open floor plans continue to dominate, and the methods of achieving them may surprise you. From sustainable materials to neutral palettes and everything in between, today’s prevailing trends convey comfort, expression and environmental consciousness.

AMBIENCE + CONVENIENCE Bright, open and functional are a few terms frequently used to describe today’s ideal home. In achieving this aesthetic, many homeowners have turned to renovation. Denise McGaha, principal of Denise McGaha Interiors, notes that in addition to a light and airy ambience, her clients are implementing innovative interior elements. “Soft-close drawers, coffee systems, appliance pantries, silver closets, staff kitchens, sparkling water on tap, temperature-controlled wine storage, multiple dishwashers, convection cooking, touch technology for kitchen faucets, smart-home technology, laundry rooms on every floor, heated floors and in-home spas are among the top requests we receive for interior spaces,” McGaha says. In a world of constant technological innovation, it is no

OPEN-AIR ENTERTAINMENT Along with sustainable materials, outdoor living has become a prominent residential trend. The outdoor environment has gone from luxury to necessity and now includes everything from lush landscaping and entertainment spaces to water and fire features. Tal Thevenot, the president and principal designer of AquaTerra Outdoors, notes that his clients request spaces that are extensions of their homes and combine beauty, function and comfort, allowing enjoyment of the outdoors without sacrificing innovative features and conveniences. “Shade is the number one request we get,” he says. “In our area the design trends are mixed, but we feel they are leaning toward transitional style. In addition, artificial grass has come a long way in look and feel, is low maintenance and saves money, so naturally homeowners are considering that more and more.” In giving insight on outdoor renovations, Thevenot explains that an understanding of the fine details makes all the difference when dealing with plant life and hardscapes. “When it pertains to new outdoor structures there is code work that has to be done beforehand to determine the restrictions within which we must work,” he says. “For renovation of existing structures, we must inspect the integrity of all structural elements to make sure our designs can be safely built.”

PAINT GOES A LONG WAY IN CHANGING THE IMPACT OF A ROOM

While transitional design, neutral palettes and open floor plans prevail, Tiffany McKinzie of Tiffany McKinzie Interior Design identifies another trend rising to the forefront of residential renovation: bold, saturated colors in the form of accent pieces. “I’m very excited to see people expanding their palettes and incorporating strong accent colors into elements other than furniture and art,” McKinzie says. An important step when approaching a renovation is to consider whether a large-scale, whole-home remodel is necessary. Updating paint, countertops and furnishings can change the feel and function of a space without requiring the same time and monetary commitment. Regardless of the size of the project, McKinzie points to research and planning as ways to prevent stress and save time and money. “Do homework on the front end before committing to the scope of the work desired,” she says. “Spend time reading blogs, magazines or online forums about the reality of renovation and what to expect. There are many resources available to assist with establishing a realistic budget, hiring professionals and finding products. The sphere of material resources and talent has grown exponentially.”

Often, the underlying goal of a renovation is to achieve these characteristics, and according to Stephen Arnn, doing so doesn’t have to mean whole-home remodeling. “Typically, homeowners in Dallas are renovating their kitchens

the use of materials that are environmentally friendly and blend with the home. “A definite must-have for high-end residences is double-paned glass windows,” he says. “Another element to consider is shading, so we’re seeing larger roof overhangs to eliminate the effects of the sun, outdoor living rooms and the resurgence of porches. Overall, long-lasting materials are a must-have.” WRITTEN BY GRETA WOLF

WORDS OF WISDOM:

A CONVERSATION WITH STEPHEN ARNN What are some quick fixes to achieve a more updated interior or exterior? For the exterior, changing windows and doors and painting. For the interior, a myriad of lighting, color schemes, furniture, flooring and wall finishes. What are some new design elements/styles or innovations in renovation about which you are excited? The new focus on opening spaces in a home to create an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Homeowners are removing walls and adding sliding panels to open traffic patterns.

A

lover of contemporary aesthetics, interior designer and homeowner Elisabeth McCabe didn’t seem likely to be taken with a traditional-style home. But when she saw a stately Georgian-style residence in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston, she was captivated. “The house was dark and the kitchen was too small,” McCabe says. “But I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I came back seven times and kept visualizing how I would open it up and create this clean, simple interior as a backdrop for the things I love.” McCabe had been house hunting for mainly one reason: Her family needed more space. “I have a husband, Brian, three children, two dogs, a cat and a fish,” she says. “We were outgrowing our old home.” The designer and her brood, however, were already living in River Oaks and wanted to stay there. “We moved to this neighborhood from New York City 16 years ago and haven’t left,” she says. “It’s near the city and is filled with beautiful old-growth trees.” The designer gave into what felt like a gravitational pull and purchased her ideally situated would-be dream home. She was then poised to make changes but required assistance with the architecture. “My husband and I prefer contemporary design,” she says. “So, when I saw another house close by that had clean lines but still fit in with the traditional style of the neighborhood, I left a note for the owners, who called and gave me the name of their architect.” That architect was Reagan Miller—and he quickly joined forces with McCabe to help reimagine her new home. “The house was generally well-done,” Miller says.

“It was just dated, and Elisabeth wanted a more current sensibility.” Therefore, Miller painted the typical red brick white and replaced the traditional-style entrance with a modernist steel canopy that hangs above double steel front doors. For the interior, he modernized the layout. “I opened up the kitchen to the family room by removing a staircase that compartmentalized the areas,” he explains. “There were two other staircases, so the third wasn’t necessary.” Using the square footage he had gained, the architect added a small office and bedroom on the upper level. The third staircase was superfluous, but the prominent trimwork throughout the house was not. “I fell for the highprofile moldings,” McCabe says. “When I first looked at the house, I imagined painting them and the walls white so everything from the ground up would be monochromatic.” Eventually, the designer did just that. And the effect of the white-on-white design gesture was a neutralization that let the texture of the moldings burst forth. McCabe made the

TX_LX39_Tang_202-217.indd 209

wood floors a textural experience, too, by layering high-gloss polish on top of an ebony stain. Similarly, the walls and the ceiling of the study are painted black and glisten with a lacquer finish. “We added so much sleekness to this house; it’s everywhere you look,” says builder David Stone. Once the interior architecture was transformed into a bright and richly textured setting, McCabe, who resides on the board of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, was able to place her collection of significant contemporary artworks. “There’s a light box by Leo Villareal in the entry,” she says. “At night, the space turns different colors depending on the color of the box.” In the living room, sculptures by Joseph Havel are ethereal in presentation. “They’re old book pages buried in Lucite,” says McCabe. And above the study fireplace, an abstract work by Dana Frankfort has the word “think” hidden within its paint. Some works the owners identify with on a personal level, such as a lithograph by Robert Longo, while others

McCabe selected a silver-colored carpet from Madison Lily Rugs to contrast with the purple velvet on the furnishings in the study. A black-and-white Donald Baechler work and a piece by Ebru Uygun from Dirimart in Istanbul flank the doors, which lead to the living room featuring a Gaetano Sciolari-designed chandelier from Mrs. PK and Oz.

focus on form and color. The wildly diverse collection, which McCabe cultivated with the help of art consultant Melissa Kepke Grobmyer of MKG Art Management, also includes works by Kenneth Noland, Pat Steir, Andy Coolquitt and Jackie Saccoccio. The achromatic luster of the flooring and the walls was the ideal background for McCabe’s collection of whimsical furnishings, too. “I design the way I choose art,” she says. “I buy things I love, and they all seem to work together.” To this end, the designer combined antiques and modern pieces in each of the rooms. “It’s more interesting and unexpected,” she explains. Antique French chairs surround a Eero Saarinen-designed table in the dining room, where a massive and glittering Art Deco-style crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling. “I wanted that fixture for years,” McCabe says. In the entry, the designer offset an iconic vintage black plastic hand

chair with a midcentury Italian Lucite pendant, while in the living room, she juxtaposed a pair of white barrel chairs with vintage crystal sconces and a fanciful Hal Bienenfeld Art Deco mirror. McCabe’s home—a design that celebrates both traditional and contemporary styles—is a beautifully minimalist scene where her dynamic collections have the spotlight. But that’s not how it began. “This house was on the market for almost two years,” McCabe says. “I don’t think people could see how to open it up.” In her mind’s eye, the designer knew almost immediately exactly how she would transform the space. “I envisioned having almost no color and lots of texture,” she says. “I wanted to give my favorite things great presence by making everything else aesthetically peaceful.” Today, the house appears exactly the way she visualized it, proving imagination really is everything.

Miller collaborated with Cinco Pools, changing the pool’s form from an L-shape to a large rectangle. Additionally, Cinco Pools laid a series of stone pavers from A.J. Brauer Stone. Landscaping was designed by McCabe. Black lounge chairs and ottomans from Thompson + Hanson provide seating.

O  

n any given day, you can find Adam Littke, co-owner of Dallas-based artisanal kitchen and home boutique Set & Co. with his wife, Jennifer, spiraling down Instagram’s rabbit hole in search of virtual breadcrumbs left by artists, designers and tastemakers around the world. “While in the grips of Instagram, I discovered a beautiful chair made of leather, wood and brass,” says Adam, who moved from Los Angeles to Dallas with Jennifer in August 2014 and opened the store last May. “The design was superb and completely handmade by a local artist. After a few emails and phone calls, we met with Texas Rover Company in Houston and have been carrying the Humphrey chair ever since.” This affinity for virtual hunting, however, doesn’t mean that the duo lacks a desire to travel; in fact, the opposite is true. When the two traverse the globe, they seek out local artists and galleries, searching in predominantly transitional neighborhoods where they are likely to find authentic, handmade pieces with an interesting story such as ceramics, textiles, cutlery and furniture with an emphasis on quality. “Our selection process is heavily influenced by craftsmanship,” Adam says. “It’s a gut feeling. I think, ‘We love this, someone else will, too.’”” This intuition influenced

TX38_LX_SM_Littke_218-221.indd 220

the order for graphite-like teacups, bowls and vases by Berlin-based Schoemig Porzellan, as well. “We’re selling who we are as people and what we love,” says Jennifer, who primarily focuses on the store’s styling and aesthetics, and is also in the midst of designing luxury boutique hotels across the south. According to her, the duo likes to create environments that feel relevant yet perennial. One tick on the timeless column, the shop is run out of a 1922 brick mercantile building in the historic Oak Cliff neighborhood; stepping into the original retail space—which includes 16-foot-high ceilings and an ever-evolving array of products—is very much like stepping inside the private Littke residence. “So much in the shop came straight from our house,” Adam says. “The place settings, tile and overall primitive Shaker Folk Art look are practically identical.” Concurs Jennifer: “Our aesthetic is modern primitive. We love clean lines that feature the depth and texture of objects with patina and age.” The result is a mix of pieces from global and local craftsmen whose collections have one thing in common—welcoming simplicity through objects. “I’ve always been interested in well-made, utilitarian pieces,” Adam says, “and when we opened our shop, we knew we’d focus on these interests.” Mission accomplished.

he first time architect David Webber toured the midcentury house in Austin purchased by his clients, he saw right past oddities such as the continuous balcony on the second level where no doors led to the outside, and the excessive ornamentation on the sweeping concrete staircase. Instead, he focused on the beautiful beamwork, substantial structural system and the possibilities for creating an open floor plan that responded to the flowing indoor-outdoor house his clients envisioned. “The home already had most of what they wanted,” Webber says. “But they also wanted it to be more open to the outdoors and for finishes and materials to be updated and elegant.” The homeowners, too, looked beyond the peculiarities, and the wife formed an immediate bond with the 1962 structure.

TX_LX39_Webber_222-233.indd 225

“The previous owners who built the house had two girls and a boy, just like us, so determining where our twin girls and son would sleep was obvious,” says the wife, a native of Sydney, Australia. “We also saw a few elements of the house, like the copper caps and gutters, as great gifts.” There was no question that the structure, originally designed by esteemed Austin architects Arthur Fehr and Charles Granger, had great bones. “The only problem was the home was choppy spatially; there were simply too many rooms and walls,” Webber says, noting also that the finishes were luxurious but dated. “People don’t live that way anymore.” To update the main floor layout, Webber removed as many partitions as feasible to create one 80-foot-long room that steps out onto an equally long covered terrace. A glass wall with custom sliding panels

In the living room, Greer Hartmann placed chairs—cloaked in a Donghia textile—and a sofa, all by Chai Ming Studios, as well as the Blackman Cruz coffee table, on a Kyle Bunting rug.

meticulously placed to create a pattern consistent with the intervals of the existing ceiling beams now fills the back wall. “It’s an extreme idea to have a long continuous open linear space echoed by a similarly long outdoor linear open space,” Webber says. “The upstairs and downstairs are both studies on how to be open, but they do it in different ways that are complementary.” The now-larger entryway cried out for an establishing feature, so Webber collaborated with designer Jennifer Greer Hartmann on a walnut wall—featuring blackenedsteel plates interspersed to hide electrical components— that reads like a midcentury piece. According to Greer Hartmann, who worked with the owners on their previous residence, although midcentury influence was a factor, when it came to the finishes and color scheme, the

TX_LX39_Webber_222-233.indd 228

couple sought a different direction. “They wanted a more classic, contemporary feel,” says the designer, who introduced soft taupes and warm whites on the walls to initiate the desired ambience. The appropriately toned painted-ash shiplap walls, meant to look like an extension of the stained cypress on the exterior, flow from the entryway into the kitchen, where champagne-colored lacquered cabinets line one side of the space. Designing with the wife’s request for minimalism in mind, Greer Hartmann enclosed everything. “The coffee station and chopping boards are tucked away next to the oven, and a door conceals a walk-in pantry,” she says. Concurs Webber: “The home’s materials and details seem so cohesive that it’s a very quiet space visually.”

The architect removed the entire back wall of the house to make way for a glass wall with custom sliding panels built by Maverick Door and Millwork. RH chaises reside near a pool by Blue Hole Pools. The team, including landscape designer Mark Word, worked to preserve the existing oak tree. On the upper level, bedrooms that face the backyard received new Juliet balconies.

Furnishings proved to be a breeze as almost all the pieces selected by Greer Hartmann for the couple’s previous residence looked equally at home in their new digs. Their chenille-covered sofa and chairs with a jacquard weave, for example, were a perfect fit in the living room, which features all existing furnishings with the exception of a new armoire. Similarly, in the master bedroom, save the addition of new side tables, the existing pieces handily made the transition. “If you buy things you love in the first place, you can make them work anywhere,” says Greer Hartmann. Throughout the process, Webber was mindful of honoring the original architecture while embracing the need for change. “I felt like it was our duty to uphold the strongest points while taking liberties with the weakest ones,” he says. Regarding the latter, he replaced the non-functional front balcony with a single metal planter box more in scale with the building and added two planters on the lower level to establish continuity and to soften the façade of the original architecture. In keeping with the home’s clean midcentury lines, landscape designer Mark Word filled the upper level box with lady’s slipper and the lower two with foxtail ferns. “I went with monospecies as much as possible to make a more graphic and legible statement,” says Word. He then added other vegetative matter to soften the shell. To update the staircase, Webber finished the treads with steel plates and was delighted to discover that a series of turquoise medallions on the metalwork easily popped off, leaving a pleasing, more simplistic geometric pattern behind. When it came to the structural systems, the architect recommended exposing the original decking by removing the upper-level flat ceiling, which general contractors Matt Risinger and Eric Rauser, as well as project manager David Moody, accommodated. “We thought the true nature of the architecture should be expressed on the interior, and we could insulate on the outside,” says Risinger, who was hired for his expertise on old buildings and notes that the house is a net-zero energy structure. “And when the architect introduced a clerestory window that ran the length of the entire second floor, we engineered a duct system, in collaboration with integrated design and building science consulting firm Positive Energy, that worked around it.” It is this blending of inside and out that really made the difference and is why the owners are so happy with the home’s overall result. “I wanted to feel like we were in Sydney, where indoor and outdoor life comes together, and there’s that similar ease to life here,” the wife says. “I feel right at home.”

HOUSTON ARTIST AND PRODUCT DESIGNER LIZ MARSH INFUSES HER PARISIAN LOVE AFFAIR INTO A CHIC COLLECTION OF ART AND ACCESSORIES FOR THE HOME. WRITTEN BY BRADLEY NESBITT / PHOTOGRAPHY BY KATE LESUEUR

TX38_LX_SM_Marsh_234-237.indd 235

2/5/16 3:28 PM


iz Marsh is an in vogue artist and product designer with a wanderlust that continually takes her from Houston to Paris and back again. “I’ve been traveling to France throughout my life and lived in Paris for six years,” she says. “I was greatly inspired by some of the finest museums in the world, and found ancient aesthetics to contrast beautifully with modern art.” Having been a creative force in the design world for two decades, Marsh is having a revival, and by no means does she consider herself an emerging artist. “I’m more of a re-emerging artist that has been reinvented,” she says. Her résumé is vast and varied, from working for fashion houses the likes of Dior, Jimmy Choo and Bottega Veneta, to being commissioned by Brunschwig & Fils to create a collection of botanical decoupage lamps. “There’s a definite thread between fashion and art. Often times they collide and feed on each other,” says Marsh, whose travel inspiration started early: As a child, her family would go antiquing for fun in New Orleans. “That was the genesis for my love of European antiques.” Marsh began scouring Paris flea markets during her teenage years and started collecting antique prints, papers and fragments for her future artistic endeavors, soon discovering that these elements could be turned into striking decoupage collages and artwork. Years of antique-buying excursions in France and a deep passion for modern art has birthed Marsh’s current creative renaissance. Today, the designer is using her skills in an edgy, mod and fun way. Her products run the gamut from works on paper and canvas, to bespoke lamps painted with Art Deco birds or custom-colored splatter paint, to 24-karat-gold glitter circles mounted on canvases and framed in Lucite boxes, to vibrant spin Pop Art butterfly paintings and minimalist ceramic sculptures. “It all stems from my love of modern art,” says Marsh, whose work can be found locally at Longoria Collection, Shabby Slips and Watkins Culver, and who currently also has an interior design consultation business, Liz Marsh Design. “But, as you move through life, influences evolve.” From all things European to designers Kelly Wearstler and Jean-Louis Deniot, and even artist Jeff Koons’ exhibit at Versailles, for Marsh, inspiration can be found everywhere. “I adore 18th-century antiques paired with vintage 1970s furnishings and modern artwork,” she says. “That mix is exciting.”

L

ess is more,” says designer Mark Ashby when discussing the way in which he approached the interiors of a Dallas home in the Highland Park neighborhood that he designed for his friend and longtime client. “Having fewer things put more importance on everything we chose. Every piece counted.” Ashby and the homeowner have collaborated on several projects over the years, including a handful of residences, an office and a restaurant. So when the client and his family moved again, the two friends were in sync from the start. “I consider Mark one of my closest friends and a trusted adviser,” says the owner, who runs a private investment firm. “He gets me and my aesthetic, and when it comes to pulling things together and a sense of composition, Mark is at the top of this game.” Sited atop a bluff overlooking Turtle Creek, the 1920s estate house had an idyllic location but was in need of an update. Rather than tear it down, Ashby and his client decided to renovate the existing structure in order to respect and preserve its historic nature. This was in step with the owner’s overall vision, which was a home that felt collected over decades but modernized and livable for his young family. “He wanted thoughtful and reserved yet warm and inviting, and the architecture of the house lent itself to that approach,” says Ashby. “The house had great bones, but it was ready for a renovation, so we polished out the flaws and created a canvas for my client’s own aesthetic.” Ashby and his design team, led by Anne Grandinetti, worked closely with architect Jessica Stewart Lendvay to use the home’s existing bones and some new interior materials to modernize the outdated edges without changing its footprint. The extensive facelift included opening up the kitchen and breakfast room, rebuilding the bathrooms and creating entertaining nooks. “The house’s interiors had a lovely sense of scale and a very classic layout that remained after the renovation,” says Lendvay. “We changed and simplified details so it really felt like one consistent home.” Rather than discard the old-fashioned pecan paneling in the family room, Ashby gave it new life with a bleached ceruse finish. “It’s an homage to Jean-Michel Frank,” he says. Ceiling beams were bleached the same shade, making the room feel enveloped in warmth. A pair of

Jens Risom chairs, a Milo Baughman coffee table and an archival pigment print of sinuous smoke rings by Donald Sultan neutralize the traditional architecture. “The homeowner knew what he wanted,” says project manager Antony Telling, who worked with builder Tom F. Hughston of Tom F. Hughston General Contractor on the renovation and currently heads his own firm, A.T. Construction. “He and Mark put a lot of effort into getting the details just right. Every selection was thoughtfully considered.” Knowing the flooring would be a prominent feature throughout the house, the design team took great pains to ensure the wood color was appropriate, ultimately choosing a honey hue. “It looks so simple, but we really analyzed the flooring,” says Ashby. “We thought the honey color would look bright against the reflection from the water outside and feel more classical.” Walls were treated with hand-applications of white Venetian plaster, adding a quiet layer of depth and texture to every space. “There’s a very subtle sense of movement on the walls,” says Lendvay. “The plaster is so highly worked it’s like touching polished glass.” The floor color works in tandem with the white walls to provide a neutral backdrop that allows the homeowners’ extensive art collection and fine furnishings to shine. Accent and upholstery colors were pulled from the washed-out, antique Oushak rugs used throughout. When choosing the furnishings, Ashby kept his client’s preference for clean and contemporary in mind. “He loves a modern look but didn’t want to live in a modern box,” Ashby says. Therefore, a chandelier in the dining room was chosen for its weightless appearance paired with the more prominent lithographs flanking the fireplace, while a vintage Saarinen table surrounded by vibrant chairs adds color and warmth to the sparsely furnished and otherwise white room. “In contrast to the delicate look of the table and chairs, a chunky jute rug grounds the space and balances the artwork and furniture,” says Ashby. In addition, the husband drove the color direction in the master bedroom, requesting a pewter shade for the plaster to give the room a cocoon-like feel. Ashby consulted with landscape designer Mary Ellen Cowan to ensure the exterior felt as lush as the interiors. Along with native plant materials to create a sense of place, Cowan used “crisp, clean lines and subtle plantings to allow the architecture to sing.” To meld a bit of history with modern flair, she reinterpreted the classic white-wood Chippendale-style gate with “thin metal in a subtle gray so details were discovered only upon closer inspection.” The overall result is not just a house, it’s an entire mood carefully laid out by Ashby and the team. “It’s a very beautiful and gracious old home repurposed for a modern family,” says the designer. “We weren’t trying to change the spirit of house or turn it into something it wasn’t. Everything we did felt like we were honoring what we found.”

In the breakfast room, a soapstone countertop from IGM Corp. pairs with custom cabinetry conceived by the designer, along with architect Jessica Stewart Lendvay, and fabricated by Johnson & Burres. Cabinetry hardware is from Elegant Additions. Right: Whimsical yet formal, the dining room includes vintage chairs from Wyeth in New York covered in a Knoll Textiles fabric. The Bourgeois Bohème Atelier chandelier hangs above a vintage Eero Saarinen table featuring a custom top. Robert Longo lithographs, a mirror from Blackman Cruz in Los Angeles and drapery fabric from Dorian Bahr complete the scene.

The space, which opens to the back garden conceived by landscape designer Mary Ellen Cowan, was envisioned with minimalism and functionality in mind. Wood floors from French Brown run underfoot.

Marc Bacher Founder and CEO 3025 Umatilla Street, Suite 203 Denver, Colorado 303.888.7301 marc@scandinavianhardwoods.com scandinavianhardwoods.com

Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? Good design must deliver form and function at an accessible price without negatively impacting the environment. Respecting the full life cycle of these beautiful hardwoods from forest to floor is paramount. How do you define luxury? I think of luxury as any object or experience that provides a wonderful rush of enjoyment and satisfaction. Price isn’t always a defining factor, because to the customer, luxury is subjective. What are you working on next? I am focused on expanding partnerships with notable designers, architects and builders who are interested in products that tell a story. Finding those who are seeking differentiation is crucial.

SCANDINAVIAN HARDWOODS Natural beauty and distinction are the principles upon which Scandinavian Hardwoods has built its reputation for providing premier, high-performing floor coverings. “Our floors are tasteful and clean,” explains Marc Bacher, the company’s founder and CEO. “We strive to make the best-performing product that looks absolutely stunning. This is one of the many reasons why we do not have any solvents in our finish. It makes for a very clear, beautiful look. We want the natural beauty of the wood to always be front and center.” And Bacher is well versed in what it takes to create exceptional floor coverings. He practically grew up in the flooring industry while simultaneously growing the business as a young sales rep for Kährs, one of the oldest manufacturers of hardwood flooring in the world. There he discovered the importance of innovation, quality, commitment to local sourcing and sustainability, which ultimately led him into product development for the company. It was this experience that fostered his desire to build on everything he had learned and redefine accessible luxury. “When I left the company, I saw an opportunity to stay connected by bringing high design and luxury hardwood flooring to market at a reasonable price. This is what drives Scandinavian Hardwoods,” he explains. The ultimate goal for the brand is to take each project to the next level with products that provide an exceptional experience. “Beyond just looks is the history in each plank. You feel a wonderful connection to nature, along with the hard work that the people of Nybro, Sweden, have put into these products for more than 70 years,” Bacher reveals. “We work exclusively with designers, architects and builders. My goal is to help them gain greater recognition with the exceptional interiors they are creating by expanding their choices of color palettes and finishes as well as unmatched quality.”

TOP: Knots, cracks and wooden plugs give Oak Sparuto its wonderfully rustic feel, while the natural oil finish combined with smoking lends to its unique texture. BOTTOM: Oak Sevede features rich and warm tones from amber and a three-dimensional structure that enhances floor knots for a worn look and feel. In addition, the wood matures, becoming richer with time.

Teresa M. Morgan, ASID Principal 6215 Liberty Hill Dallas, Texas 214.460.1460 teresa@teresamorgandesigns.com teresammorgandesigns.com

What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? My greatest success is that I gained the courage to do things on my terms. Of course those terms are ever-changing, so I never get bored. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? My work is mostly reflective of the clients’ personality, style and needs. If anything is recognizable, it would be the eclectic accent pieces that are incorporated into the overall design.

TERESA M. MORGAN DESIGNS Once her youngest of two sons started school, former stay-at-home mom Teresa M. Morgan took a leap of faith in herself and pursued her destiny: a career in design culminating from her own upbringing by two diversely creative parents. “Design is what I am compelled to do,” she says. The result is her highly successful, full-service interior design firm, Teresa M. Morgan Designs, and a portfolio spanning both high-end residential and commercial projects. Morgan continues to redefine the term “full-service” as she anticipates the upcoming expansion of her repertoire of offerings. “I am looking forward to growing and expanding my business in the immediate future,” Morgan explains. “The custom window coverings portion of our firm continues to grow. I am also thrilled to be adding an online retail store with custom-designed decorative accessories that are unique to our brand.” Morgan’s conventional approach to design ensures that function and beauty are balanced to meet the unique needs of a particular design. “Every room has a purpose and should be designed to fulfill that purpose,” she says. “Good design takes into consideration the principles and elements of design to create a truly beautiful, functional and well-balanced space.” Morgan’s passion for creativity and design is transcended only by her desire to build meaningful, lasting relationships with her clients. For her, it is essential to the success of any project. “My creative process usually begins with getting to know my client. What do they want, need and most importantly, what is it they are looking to accomplish?” she says. “My favorite part is when my clients begin to let go and allow themselves to take part in the creative process. It's exciting for them and for me.”

What would be your dream creative project? It would be to collaborate with British fashion designer Paul Smith. I appreciate his use of color and eccentricity that is successfully showcased in co-branded product developments across design disciplines. What is inspiring you now? From accents with finish variations and mixtures of natural elements to uncommon edge trims, 2016 will be about a monochromatic palette with traditional marble accents. How do you define luxury? Luxury is a fine line, which I believe is grossly misunderstood. It's not necessarily relative to price point, but rather a fondness for perfection of natural beauty.

ARIA STONE GALLERY Established in 2013 with a single location in Dallas, Aria Stone Gallery set out to inspire a new appreciation for stone and help customers discover the uniqueness and beauty of this natural wonder. The enterprising brand created a boutique experience that included a gallery-like retail space in which slabs of stone are exhibited as pieces of artwork. Unique to the stone industry, this bold new approach soon dictated the need for a second location in Houston. “Aria seeks to provoke the imagination and challenge the current limited perception of how natural stone should be used,” says director of marketing and operations April Renee Graves. “Most importantly, Aria is recreating and restoring the inherent richness and superiority of natural stone by the manner in which we select, display, utilize and sell these works of art.” With a reputation for high standards in material selection, sourcing only the finest stone slabs is an imperative aspect of the brand’s philosophy. “Aria's material standards are benchmarked by stones that have the most vivid color saturation, consistent and harmonious vein patterning across the entire slab and composition clarity,” Graves explains. “The culmination of these characteristics in the stone lends to a dramatic, historical story behind their formation.” Aria’s approach to sourcing and showcasing stones is rivaled only by the uniqueness of the client experience. “We offer a hands-on approach to aiding clients in defining and actualizing their design intentions. Our team offers a range of design backgrounds across multiple industries that can be of great resource,” says Graves. “For clients who would like an even more authentic approach to material selection, Aria provides a program whereby clients are guided to the quarry to hand select materials for their personal projects.”

TOP: Four book-matched materials showcased in the current collection, which can also be seen on display in the gallery, including Dalmata, Zebrino Black and Gold, Arabescato Corchia and Calacatta Cielo. BOTTOM: Aria’s 1- and 3-centimeter natural stones, fabricated in partnership with Choice Fabricated Stone in Fort Worth, create depth of perception through refined juxtaposing, as well as smooth, polished finishes, in this fireplace.

What is your creative process? It all starts with preparation, gathering information and collaborating with our clients and colleagues. Presentation to the client is the final step, but it is also the most essential.

Chris Blackburn Andrew Gilbert 1722 Reserve Street Garland, Texas 214.221.0365 texascounterfitters.com

What do you like most about your job? We most enjoy providing a fun and creative working environment for all of our employees. This, in turn, helps to deliver an excellent final product for all of our clients. What is inspiring you now? What inspires us in everything we do is our goal to maintain our status as one of the most recognizable, quality, high-end stone fabrication shops in the region.

TEXAS COUNTER FITTERS A sophisticated approach and meticulous attention to detail in the fabrication and installation of natural and engineered solid surfaces has quickly propelled Texas Counter Fitters from its initial beginnings in luxury residential construction to high-end commercial projects as well, establishing the firm as one of the most sought after in the Dallas area. “We strive to provide experienced contractors and designers with the highest quality and most professional services the dimensional stone industry has to offer,” says company owner Chris Blackburn and president Andrew Gilbert. “Customer service is the guiding principal behind our success.” While customer service is a driving philosophy, the two men behind the firm have also put the company at the forefront of the industry by keeping abreast of all the latest innovations and industry advancements. “One of the most exciting new products is thin porcelain tiles, also known as TPT, that are the size of current large-format stone slabs,” Gilbert says. “We are excited about the massive application potential of this new material. We are using it for flooring, wall dressing and exterior cladding.” Along with their enthusiasm for innovation, the company founders also share an ambitious desire to embrace even the most difficult design challenges. “There is a lot of information out there via the web that clients can see before meeting with one of our design consultants to help bring together their ideas,” Blackburn explains. “We encourage our clients to think outside the box, bring us their visions and let us help make them a reality.” At the end of the day, both Blackburn and Gilbert agree that the success of a project is achieved when they have pushed the boundaries of installation and fabrication and exceeded the client’s expectations.

DESIGNER SHOW HOUSE This past November, Luxe Interiors + Design, the City of Beverly Hills and Friends of Greystone gathered to celebrate the VIP Preview of the Maison de Luxe designer show house at the historic Doheny Greystone estate in Beverly Hills, California. Over 500 VIP guests perused the reimagined rooms of this iconic estate while in sheer awe of its creativity, beauty and historic architecture. The Entertainologist, Lulu Powers, transformed the courtyard area into a decadent party atmosphere with dramatic lighting and luxurious furniture, exclusively provided by Frontgate. Guests enjoyed cocktails and assorted wines by Fantesca Estate & Winery indulged in delicious hors d’oeuvres. The evening was enhanced by a special award dedication to Luxe Editor in Chief Pamela Jaccarino by the mayor of Beverly Hills, Julian A. Gold, M.D., for her commitment to the restoration of the Doheny Greystone estate. World-class pianist Alexander Borghese provided entertainment throughout the evening by tickling the ivories of Steinway & Sons’ Special Collection Red Pops piano, which was front row center in the estate’s grand hall. Luxe extends its gratitude to the participating designers, sponsors, vendors and showrooms for their generous support of this project.
