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.

memo SHANNON RATCLIFFE PUBLISHER

Welcome to the March/April issue of Luxe Interiors + Design! Spring is in the air, and our cold, wet Southern California weather is almost behind us. With the design industry hard at work, so is the team at Luxe Southern California. This past winter season was a busy one, as we attended several events. First, we helped Surfaces USA celebrate the grand reopening of its Anaheim showroom. Plus, Luxe enjoyed a private luncheon and a tour of the Nancy Corzine headquarters, where we also held two local LuxeConnect luncheons. To kick off the spring season, we attended a special gathering at the Schumacher Estate in La Quinta, located in The Madison Club community. Coming up, we will be attending a creative design function in San Diego with Seventh & 7 Designs, and, in May, mark your calendars for Chairs for Charity, an event with proceeds being donated to the Ronald McDonald House. Enjoy the issue!

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

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!

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.”

From top: Each of Stephen Antonson’s plaster creations, like the Angele chandelier and Macklin center table, is crafted by hand in his Brooklyn studio. Century Furniture’s Thompson chest by designer Thomas O’Brien is fabricated in Hickory, North Carolina. Stickley has been making hardwood furnishings, like the Elroy chair shown here, in America since its inception in 1900.

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

WORLD CLASS

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.

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.

RADAR / SCENE

When it came time for Rubelli’s CEO Andrea Rubelli to find a designer to transform his never-before-done fiber-optic woven fabric into a piece of furniture, Rubelli found it to be an easy choice. He called upon Italian-born and New York City-based architect and designer Antonio Pio Saracino, the celebrated creator praised for his use of technology and shape. With Rubelli’s weaving prowess and Saracino’s design finesse, what resulted was a sleek and sexy sofa with spaceship-like curves and cutting-edge technology: the Star sofa. Here, the duo shares how the project went from idea to installation. rubelli.com; donghia.com; antoniopiosaracino.com

ANDREA RUBELLI

ANTONIO PIO SARACINO

When it was just an idea… It took a few years just to find the right fiber and develop the kind of weave that I wanted. Luckily, a group of technicians at my mill got passionate about the project.

Design inspiration: Lighting is such an important aspect in everything I do; so, working with it in furniture was intriguing and unusual. Getting the folded parts right was the most important aspect because that’s where the fabric releases the most light; that’s where the oval shape and curves come from. There’s no shadow when you’re sitting so the perception is that your body is floating. It’s surreal; you lose the sense of dimension.

About the design: I was making progress in terms of technology and started sharing the secret project with Antonio. When I was ready to upholster, I asked Antonio because it wouldn’t work on a Donghia sofa. The shape had to be designed with all the right curves to enhance the effect of light. The technology: It’s a great time to play with lighting right now because technology is revolutionizing the industry. The source of light is an LED, which can be dimmed by remote. The LED throws the light into the fiber optics that are woven into the fabric as wefts. A seam or staple would cut the fiber optics—limitation drove the design details.

@katiehodgesdesign WHO: Katie Hodges, an interior designer based in Los Angeles whose personal style straddles the line between fun and functional—achieved by utilizing a clean color palette with a dash of worldly textiles for some spice. WHAT: Visitors to Hodges’ colorful feed will find behind-the-scenes shots—like Hodges on a pottery wheel or on top of a ladder at an install—as well as some of her finished spaces. WHY: Because it’s obvious that design fuels Hodges’ life; thus, it’s the perfect place to garner a little bit of armchair inspiration. To her, color, texture and details are key, and we couldn’t agree more. IN HER WORDS: “For stunning architectural moments, head to Los Feliz. There’s a mix of Spanish, Mediterranean, Colonial, Craftsman and midcentury architecture all in one area, which is hard to come by in L.A. I love how every house feels different and special.”

TALKING SHOP EVAN COLE OF HD BUTTERCUP

Limited release: We did 12 sofas, each with a constellation relating to the Zodiac. For these, there are two layers of fiber optics, one with stretched fabric that allows the stars to shine. We launched the product in Los Angeles, the city of stars, which was a fun coincidence, and the others will be released one by one, starting with one in Milan in April, and so on in years in art and design fairs and galleries. When did you open? We welcomed our first guests at our new showroom in Los Angeles’ Arts District in December 2015. Why L.A.? I’ve been interested in and inspired by its arts district and have been looking for a location there for many years. The building we chose has a Jean Prouvé façade from the 1930s. It reminds me of old New York. Describe the space. Sean Dix from Dix Design + Architecture in Hong Kong designed the showroom with an urban gallery design approach. There are small platforms that are meant to highlight different looks and collections. On the floor? The selection has been handpicked for the Eastside and Downtown crowds. We have original Louesa Roebuck monoprints and a new line of Scandinavian upholstery that is fun, fresh and different. hdbuttercup.com

THE MOVEMENT CERAMICS

From the groundbreaking midcentury studio pottery of David Cressey to the Postmodern forms of Peter Shire, ceramic art and design has had a long and storied history in the Los Angeles area. It is a tradition that sees no signs of stopping, as a new generation of artists and designers continue it. Below, we share the work of a notable few.

A STREET AF(FAIR): EAST MEETS WEST It is a collaboration between two SoCal powerhouses: the West Hollywood Design District and Parachute Market. Mark your calendar for April 30th for an outdoor, European-style street fair on North Almont Drive between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard. Each year’s theme is played out through the exhibitors, and thus through the visitors. This year, it’s a look at two historic and influential design movements of Southern California: European-inspired Hollywood glamour and California Modernism. These two concepts are looked at through a lens of how they’re presented in the Los Angeles designer and maker community. westhollywooddesigndistrict.com

The well-heeled have been high-tailing it to New York City’s The Apartment by The Line since its conception in 2013. The industrychanging project is located in a bright loft space in SoHo, and everything in the fully furnished space is for sale. Now, the concept is headed west to its new Los Angeles location on Melrose Place. Here, cofounder and executive creative director Vanessa Traina Snow walks us through the new brick-and-mortar space. theline.com Tell us what we’ll find inside. We sell fashion, home and beauty, with a wide range of brands across all categories. In fashion, we carry brands such as Altuzarra, AMO Denim, J.W. Anderson, Proenza Schouler and Protagonist. We have some incredible home brands like Tenfold, Ash NYC and Skultuna, too, and beauty products from Coqui Coqui, Serge Lutens, Rodin and Sunday Riley.

What’s the feel of the shop? The store is designed as a shopable home environment. We wanted the new store to reflect its surroundings and adapt to the Los Angeles environment while staying true to our consumer and design philosophy. We collaborated with architect Andrea Steele, who also did our New York space, and our internal creative team, including myself, worked on the interior direction.

DATE BOOK MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD

British born, Los Angeles-based Martyn Lawrence Bullard has become Hollywood’s go-to decorator. He’s swooned the A-list with his signature style: daring fabrics, bold colors and cultured, well-traveled accents. The second anthology of his work, Martyn Lawrence Bullard: Design & Decoration, will release this April, and within its glossy pages, a selection of his projects from Palm Springs and Miami to Umbria, Italy, and Lucerne, Switzerland. And though Bullard considers himself a citizen of the world, he calls Hollywood home sweet home. Read on as the designer reveals how he spends the rare day off in Los Angeles. martynlawrencebullard.com 9 a.m. Right across from my office on Melrose Avenue is the iconic Urth Caffé. They serve this amazing, and quite strong, organic coffee. It has a fantastic L.A. vibe and there are all sorts of characters who frequent it. 10 a.m. Walk out of Urth Caffé and into the heart of the Design District. There are so many cool vintage shops and fabric showrooms. Stroll into Hollyhock by designer Suzanne Rheinstein; she has a lot of antique items—always with a gorgeous patina. Next, Mecox Gardens is a wonderful place to find eclectic accessories, both old and new. 11 a.m. Heading down a bit, we have Downtown, by David Serrano and Robert Willson, which is one of L.A.’s legendary design stores with fabulous midcentury furniture, great lighting and interesting art. Next door is Dragonette Limited, which has some cool 1940s, ’50s and ’60s pieces, as well as a specialized photography collection.

12 p.m. I love popping into Claremont, for its historic fabrics and woven imports from Paris, and Hollywood at Home, which is Peter Dunham’s fabric emporium. He represents different designers in an eclectic, free marketlike environment. Other options are Lucca Antiques and Harbinger. 1 p.m. Once we’ve secured some fantastic finds, it brings us up to lunchtime. Close by is Fig & Olive, a restaurant with fantastic salads and grilled fish and chicken in an airy, very light and white atmosphere with comfortable furnishings. It has a cool, Italian feel that’s very modern. 2:30 p.m. Continuing on our shopping spree, there’s a whole other design district out east that sits along La Brea. Start at Fat Chance—all the dealers buy from them; it’s a great little secret spot in L.A. Then, there’s my favorite venue, Fahey/Klein Gallery. Owner David Fahey put me onto collecting.

4 p.m. American Rag sells vintage clothes, designer jeans and cool, small European brands. It also has a homewares area, for which the team shops everything from Parisian flea markets to the souks in Morocco. 5 p.m. There’s an amazing shop situated in what used to be Howard Hughes’ office: Just One Eye is a conglomerate of fashion entrepreneurs who buy big-label pieces and mix them with Japanese denims, contemporary jewelers and first-edition books. There’s no signage, just valet parking. 6 p.m. Pop into the Soho House for a cocktail and to have a look at the city from the rooftop garden. In L.A., it’s one of the few places that does a Pimm’s Cup—an English drink with Pimm’s No. 1, ginger ale and cucumber. 7 p.m. For dinner, I honor my Italian roots at Cecconi’s. If I’m very naughty, I’m ordering the black truffle pizza.

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. Desktop items: My tools of the trade (color pencils, scratch paper and drawings), a rusty horseshoe, brass door hardware and a rock from a trip to Hawaii. Personal stationery: Custom letterpress with original artwork by Marta Elise Johansen. Mood board: Torn pages from fashion and art magazines and auction catalogues. On trend: Eighties fashion is back and inspiring interiors. I’m hooked on neon, shredded and studded accents.

Desktop items: My MacBook Pro, Kayce Hughes artwork I picked up from Rivers Spencer in New Orleans, a Moleskine sketchbook where I keep my notes and my father’s Montblanc pen. Personal stationery: Number Four Eleven in Savannah and Lavender & Mint in Houston. Mood board: Mine is a result of falling down the Instagram rabbit hole, and it’s where you’ll find work from artist Alexis Walter and architect Bill Ingram, to name a few. Never too many… Monogrammed linens. Can’t live without… My red lipstick. Guilty pleasure: Fabric. Sources of inspiration: Vintage out-of-print design books, estate sales and old classic movies—I can definitely credit Auntie Mame as being a push toward a life in design.

Dream office: Mine is just that; our new office feels so fresh with tons of natural light and shelves upon shelves full of materials and samples for easy access to inspiration.

Displaying restraint… Kara Mann’s benches are cool and current yet also possess a timelessness to them that isn’t over-designed. The main lines of the piece… Are defined in solid black, providing a frame to emphasize the natural wood grain of the base; from a creative perspective I think it’s brilliant and beautiful. The attention to detail and beautiful finishing… Is an example of Baker’s trademark of uncompromising standards towards well-made furnishings. Luxury is a by-product of superior quality and sophisticated design. I always examine… Circulation, scale and the language spoken between pieces when creating areas conducive to conversation. Kara has done a wonderful job… Designing a versatile, clean, perfectly proportioned line, and I am excited to use her pieces in our clients’ spaces.

I am attracted to the bold… Example of Kate Spade’s ability to marry two of their most signature elements together: bows and polka-dots. The chairs embody… The brand’s embrace on the interiors world, displaying both formality and playfulness alongside masculine and feminine notes.

Fashion, design, art and architecture… Are all variations on a creative theme. Some of the best furnishing collections are born from fashion icons, often causing a tidal wave of symbiotic brand revival. I absolutely love the Hooker-Rowley collaboration for that exact reason—an unexpected brand pairing that stops you in your tracks. The Fleur de Glee bench is… Unmistakably Rowley in pattern yet shows off the refined upholstery elements for which Hooker is known. Add in the modern lines and jewelrylike metalwork detailing and you’re poised for perfection. As a fluent Francophile… I love the name and inherent playfulness associated with the bench. Whimsical upholstery meets modern metal—it’s the juxtaposition that makes us stop and ponder. Interiors should not exist on a single axis… But reflect the many moods and facets of personalities. Without creativity… Design becomes predictable and expected. Here, I’m so attracted to the hard, modern silhouette coupled with the floral, feminine pattern.

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.

Softness and warmth to a stark modern space or bring a maximalist room a sense of calm modernity. Where design really gets fun and memorable... Is when you start collecting valuable—not necessarily expensive—well-crafted treasures that have a history, a story and a sense of place. We love seeing the emergence of creative artisans in America and abroad. Luxury is a contract... Between maker and acquirer. The passion and talent of a great craftsman is married to the owner appreciating and understanding the beauty of an object that is made with a heart and soul.

WINDOWS + DOORS

Through dedication to architectural integrity, attention to detail and a mastery of green building, Fleetwood Windows & Doors has become a market leader for progressive, indoor-outdoor windows and doors that are environmentally sound, technologically advanced and aesthetically striking at once. “Fleetwood employs several engineers to be certain that designs and processes remain on the cusp of available technologies,” says Mark McCoy, Fleetwood’s VP of sales. “The custom nature of Fleetwood requires more personal craftsmanship for many of its processes.”

MATERIAL OF CHOICE: ALUMINUM Fleetwood’s pursuit for “building it better, not cheaper” has positioned the company as the only aluminum door and window manufacturer that makes much of its own hardware.

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 186

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.

BLACK

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

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.

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

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.

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

SMART DESIGN:

TIPS FROM FAMOSA’S JOSIAH LILLY AND VANESSA BECKING Quick fix. Small-scale renovations can bring new life to a space without requiring large budgets and extensive time frames. According to Famosa’s principals, “The kitchen is usually where everyone hangs out. It is the focal point of most homes, so updating the backsplash can make a big statement.” High design, effortless upkeep. Asked to identify a recent game changer in the industry, Lilly points to porcelain. “You can now get porcelain tiles as large as 10 feet by 5 feet and in finishes that look almost identical to natural stone or wood,” he says. “You achieve the look of stone or wood without the maintenance.”

ENDURING INTERIORS Today, the high-end home is expected to function both as a living space for its inhabitants and as a display for guests. The areas that sustain a high level of wear and tear, floors and hard surfaces, are possibly the most crucial elements to consider when aiming for residential perfection. At Famosa, this need for simultaneous durability and beauty is well understood. Led by Josiah Lilly and Vanessa Becking, the stone and tile company has frequently found itself at the center of renovation projects. “Our core business is built on our relationships with designers, architects and builders on large, custom homes where we handle all aspects of stone and tile,” Lilly says. In speaking of the innovations that have changed the face of their

which they are particularly excited. “We are seeing a lot of translucent materials being used with LED panels behind them on backsplashes, feature walls and even countertops,” Becking says. “The light brings out the natural beauty of the stone.” With a plethora of options available for nearly every space in the home, stone and tile decisions may prove difficult to make. Lilly’s advice is to spend time planning and learning before beginning a project. “There are great tools now online to research designs and material usage,” he says. “It helps us when a client has a foundation to build on, no pun intended.”

W

hen a pair of empty nesters approached builder Chris Gallo about crafting a home for them in the hills above Laguna Beach, there was never any question that the existing house, an otherwise lackluster 50-year-old structure save for its incredible views, was a scrape. However, Gallo and residential designer Paul McClean drew one idea from the old place: “The existing house was built with the original access to the garage at the top of the street-to-street lot, and after we knocked it down, we planned to repeat that,” explains Gallo. “But the design review process required bringing the garage down to the lower street end, which ultimately allowed us to open up the site at the top for better views, create more living space, and establish a place for an entry courtyard.” Having turned the design review board’s request to their advantage, McClean entered into discussions with the homeowners about the modern structure they envisioned for their hillside perch. With years of child rearing in a conventional Irvine house behind them, the couple sought a clutter-free existence and a clean, open look for the next phase of their lives. “We got rid of every single piece of furniture and most everything else we owned,” says the wife. “It was a cathartic process that was symbolic and significant in starting our new lifestyle.” Also central to their fresh start was a design aesthetic they identified as warm contemporary—a concept somewhat complicated by the request for a “stormy skies” color scheme of cool grays, blues and purples. “The idea of a warm, comfy home with what most people consider a cold palette sounds paradoxical,

but because the building is so open to the light and views, nature becomes the art, and it brings lots of warmth to the spaces,” says McClean, who crafted the structure out of black meteorite quartzite, stainless steel and floor-to-ceiling expanses of glass. “Paul designed our home to connect to the surrounding environment, maximize the views and create a perfect flow from indoor to outdoor space,” says the wife. “Chris used reveal lines and clean transitions everywhere and made it all fit together like a puzzle, and we loved Kristin Nugent’s aesthetic from the beginning.” Nugent, the home’s designer, had her own spin on turning up the heat in the modern backdrop. “The gray was a challenge, but texture played an important role in taking the edge off,” says Nugent, who, for example, topped the smooth dove porcelain tile floor with a lush wool-and-silk rug in the living room. The seating features storm-inspired hues of platinum and charcoal, but the sofa sports chenille, and chairs are leather. “These are warm materials that are on furnishings you sink into and make you want to stay awhile,” she adds. In the adjacent dining room, chairs wearing chenille surround a live-edge walnut table—an unexpected element that enhances the dominant grays. “The natural wood element adds a depth of character that sets everything off and totally changes the room,” says Nugent. She employed a walnut coffee table in the living room to similar effect.

Texture, too, took the edge off finishes. “It’s sleek surfaces that most people associate with cold,” says Nugent. Honed finishes on the fireplace and kitchen countertops take the sheen off. The requisite purples, pinks and blues are evident in the artwork and sculptural glass pieces. Meanwhile, landscape architect Larry Steinle moderated architectural elements such as the massive retaining walls visible from the kitchen with trailing Senecio radicans that spills over the walls to lyrical effect. Elsewhere, he brought in such plantings as drought-tolerant agaves and New Zealand flax in burgundy, green and, of course, gray. “I kept things fairly low, so when you looked out you’d have a foreground but could look right over it,” he says. Steinle’s simple, Zen-like approach continues in the entry courtyard, where more succulents line the walkway, and he and the architect collaborated on how best to get visitors down from street level to the front door. The solution: A series of concrete slabs floating over a water feature created the desired effect. “The idea was to have people descend gently from the gate,” says Steinle about the entry sequence. McClean also sees it as a place to take a breath. “As you step onto the concrete platforms, there’s a sense of movement, but it also slows you down,” he says. “Hopefully it encourages you to stop and see where you are.”

KNOT WORK INSPIRED BY BOTH HER PAST IN JAPAN AND HER PRESENT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, AN ARTIST PUTS A CONTEMPORARY SPIN ON FIBER. WRITTEN BY TARYN BICKLEY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC STONER

Before beginning her fiber pieces, artist May Sterchi (shown opposite, top right) sketches her designs (opposite, bottom right). Her work ranges from simple knotted containers for plants (below) to complex, layered pieces featuring multiple colors, fringe, branches and stones (left and opposite, left).

A

t the core of San Diego-area fiber artist May Sterchi’s work is an obsession with ropes, colors and shapes. “I truly think ropes and strings are beautiful, and my goal has always been to make the most of this beauty,” says Sterchi, a Japanese transplant who grew up in Fujiyoshida City, an area at the base of Mount Fuji. Her memories of her childhood there are significant, as are her studies in calligraphy, a medium she fell into at the age of 10 and continues to practice as a prelude to her pieces. “Calligraphy is very similar to knotting, and I wanted to incorporate this into my practice,” she says. Drawn to the art form for its therapeutic effects—“it’s almost like a meditation to me,” she notes—Sterchi’s designs span a plethora of influences. Mount Fuji, talismans, shrines and memories she’s carried from Japan are paramount, but it’s her present world in Southern California that really translates into the work she creates under the Himo Art moniker. “My Blk + Wht collection

represents my current vision,” she says of the minimal, modern aesthetic. “I always like to look to the present.” Moving to San Diego in 2004, Sterchi dove into home renovations and fell in love with interior design. Her subsequent interest unearthed her first vintage macramé piece, which hangs in her home today as a reminder of her expanding, creative journey. Interest piqued, she found vintage pattern books and began teaching herself the discipline, soon developing a style all her own. “From the beginning, I wanted to explore a large variety of forms and shapes that people had never seen before,” she explains. “My work is a harmony between this stillness and movement.” Appealing to a whimsical sensibility, each piece plays upon cultural and sculptural accents, the delicate layers intertwined to bring about dimension with accents like fringes and knots. “The medium is such a versatile art form,” explains the artist. “I believe it has a lot of potential to create something unexpected.” LUXESOURCE.COM / 245

t started with the pool. “I love to swim,” says Kirk Perron, a former triathlete and entrepreneur who founded Jamba Juice. “My dream has always been to have my own lap pool.” Combine that vision of a dazzling pool with a passion for modern design and midcentury style, and Palm Springs became an obvious destination for Kirk and his husband, Humberto Rossini Perron, to build a home together. Kirk saw his opportunity when the storied Jack Warner estate in Old Las Palmas came up for sale. He bought two-thirds of the property, sold off one-third, and kept a long rectangular plot for himself—the perfect size to build around a 25-meter lap pool. Kirk then turned to

San Francisco-based designer Paul Vincent Wiseman, along with senior designer Luis Alves and Kristi Carré Freeland, formerly an associate design principal and LEED green associate at the firm. Architect James Schmidt and landscape designer Stephen Suzman, another San Franciscan, rounded out the team. Kirk acted as his own general contractor, assisted by project manager Michael Wilhelm, during a two plus-year process to design and build a home with sleek lines and organic materials that speak to its desert surroundings. Wiseman’s design vision came while shopping in New York and from an extensive collection of 1960s-’70s Danish pepper grinders in deep honey-toned wood found in San Francisco. LUXESOURCE.COM / 247

Below: Light spilling across a gate creates a dramatic shadow on the adjacent travertine wall by Landmark Masonry. In the distance, the nearby mountains provide for a dramatic vista.

“It happens often in our world where an object tells the story,” Wiseman says, explaining that the grinders set an earthy, modern vibe for the project. And because the pool figures so prominently, Wiseman told Kirk that the home should resemble “his own private Aman resort,” referring to the worldwide hotels where each is designed specifically for its local terrain and culture. Here, Wiseman says, “It was a desert house. It had to feel like it was in the desert.” From the outside in—and back out again—the house is a reflection of materials that feel right at home: Stone, wood, concrete, and weathered Cor-Ten steel mix and mingle, while floor-to-ceiling windows make a seamless connection to the landscape. The designers also stayed true to the desert palette while furnishing the home—much of it with pieces that Freeland designed. “We left nature to express the color and the pattern,” Alves says. Nature, it turned out, was full of surprises. The designers took color swatches on one of their first site visits, expecting to go with muted hues, “but we realized that we needed to go brighter and stronger with the color. We saw this beautiful desert green on the landscape—and that was it,” Alves said, referring to the chartreuse that pops from nearly every room in the house. Wiseman breathed more life into the house through art, ranging from ancient stone pots from Java to the modern metal sculptures of Adam P. Gale and bronze casts of tree branches by Larry Luchtel. “Art is the long body of our consciousness,” Wiseman says. “We brought in some old things as well as things that are new to represent that continuum.”

He also used nature as art to personify the desert: Witness the Javanese log hollow standing sentry by the pool and the Indonesian strangler vine hanging in the outdoor great room. From an architectural standpoint, Schmidt capitalized on the skinny lot. “Think long and narrow, so as many rooms as possible could get a view of the mountains,” he says. Because the mountains face west, the design required abundant shading to protect against the strong afternoon sun. Large eaves extend from the house, therefore, and the outdoor great room is tucked into a covered niche that connects the house with one of the guest rooms. Rather than making the main house one long rectangle, Schmidt designed a meandering series of them, so only one section reveals itself at a time. “The house should unfold, and there should be a sense of mystery,” he says. “It’s a journey to walk through these different spaces, and there are different experiences to get there.” Suzman answered the minimalist architecture and interiors with a desert interpretation of a Japanese garden,

where meticulously raked gravel flows around large rocks and multiple varieties of agave and cactus. He also planted stands of lacy palo verde trees, interspersed with more succulents, to balance the home’s angularity. “We were creating a painting,” says Suzman. Additional plantings, some existing, hide a nearby chimney and power lines. “We wanted it to be very private,” he adds. Kirk purchased an Airstream trailer so he could live on-site while overseeing the home’s construction, but he largely stayed out of his team’s design decisions. “I was like a kid in a candy store,” he says. “Everything they showed me, I loved.” His personal favorites are the bold references to Humberto’s native Brazil: The entry features a huge photographic mural Wiseman commissioned of the beach in Ipanema where the two met 11 years ago. And crowning the living room are two midcentury Brazilian chairs. “They tell a story about Brazil during the 1940s and ’50s,” Alves says. “It completes the house so well, and it feels like they have been there all along.”

It is topped with Caesarstone from Tomalak Tile & Stone, which also encases the Versailles tub. Heath Ceramics tiles line the shower. All of the faucets are from Dornbracht, via Ferguson.

R

aised in rural Oregon and Colorado, it’s no surprise that Los Angeles-based artist Stefan Bishop developed an early appreciation for wood from his father—a sculptor and “lumberjack of sorts,” he reports. “I was enthralled with the power of the tools, the massiveness and strength of the trees, and the smell of sawdust and gasoline.” That fascination would bear fruit during his time at California College of the Arts when Bishop began to create a series of geometric, totem-like wood sculptures, which still resonate in his practice today. After the self-described “experiential learner” left school, he honed his craft in workshops in Los Angeles and Chicago. However, it is the work of the late artist Donald Judd that had the greatest influence on Bishop’s overall aesthetic. “At first it was just dizzying, bewildering, how objects so simple and pure could completely rock me to my core,” he explains. “It took years to stop trying to understand and explain the brilliance of his work and to simply absorb it.” Since launching his own studio in 2012, Bishop has expanded his repertoire to incorporate bronze. “It allows me to make things that wouldn’t be structurally sound in wood,” he notes. In contrast to his work in wood, Bishop’s Puddle series of bronze tables have fluid lines inspired by reoccurring dreams of water, most notably a nap-time vision of golden liquid pouring down his forehead. “I saw this image of a splash that dripped down to become the base,” he says. Regardless of medium and form, Bishop’s work possesses a common thread. “Whether they are architectural pieces or organic, flowing things, I consider my work to be abstract scale models of various landscapes and topographies of both the natural world and urban, industrial constructs,” he says, noting that he visualizes a miniature version of himself inhabiting his creations. “I don’t find answers, but I don’t really need them. My work is about the exploration.”

PARADISE FOUND

IMBUED WITH THE IDYLLIC SPIRIT OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, A RANCHO SANTA FE HOME OFFERS A FAMILY FROM THE EAST COAST A FRESH NEW START. WRITTEN BY LAURA MAUK PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEREMY SAMUELSON

LUXESOURCE.COM / 265

OCSD_LX36_Barry_12.indd 265

2/3/16 12:55 PM


For a family relocating from the East Coast to Rancho Santa Fe, designer Maria Barry reimagined a traditional Spanish-style home, gracing the interiors of the dwelling with a fresh palette and a blend of contemporary and classic furnishings that are both comfortable and sophisticated.

F

or years, Easterners have headed West in search of fortune, sunnier weather and a storied landscape. In the case of designer Maria Barry’s recent clients—a family who called the Baltimore area home for 10 years— it was the warmer climate as well as the promise of an easier lifestyle that drew them to Rancho Santa Fe, an idyllic community marked by towering eucalyptus trees and Spanish-style architecture. With nothing but an armful of family photographs and a few suitcases, the couple and their two young daughters said goodbye to their traditional East Coast residence and relocated to a Spanish-style home with transitional interiors designed by Barry. “The husband worked in financial investments and traveled constantly,” the designer says. “His wife and daughters were often home alone. He vowed that when he retired, he’d buy an estate in Rancho Santa Fe and never leave them again.” And that he did. The real estate agent who helped the husband keep his promise and find the perfect California residence

for his family also introduced him to Barry. From the beginning, the designer understood this project would be dramatically different from others she had worked on. “This was their dream home,” she explains. “They were starting with a clean slate and bringing almost nothing with them. There was a lot of pressure, but I welcomed the challenge. I was completely enamored with the courage it took to pick up and move across the country to a place where they knew no one.” The fact that the family remained in Maryland until the interiors were complete lent to that challenge. “We only met in person maybe three times,” Barry says. “I gave the wife a presentation, and she loved it. Then I just sent them packages with samples and choices.” Those packages were filled with neutral-toned fabric swatches and understated selections for finishes. The imagery of furniture and fixtures she sent depicted simple but graphic silhouettes that displayed rich textures such as metal, travertine, linen and silk. “Rancho Santa Fe has rules and regulations about keeping buildings authentic,” Barry notes.

Theodore Alexander barstools pull up to a kitchen island topped with white quartzite in a leathered finish from Amazon Stone Boutique. A new finish on the island brings in the gray tones found in the home. Beveled limestone tile from European Bath, Kitchen, Tile & Stone now covers the backsplash.

Beneath an existing chandelier from Italy in the family room stand a custom dining table and Jessica Charles chairs. Built-in bookshelves provide a backdrop for the area and display a variety of organic forms that speak to the dramatic landscape of Rancho Santa Fe.

A work from Art & Frame Source and an Anthology console made of reclaimed wood create a striking vignette in the living room. To maintain a cohesive look, honey brown-colored hickory flooring from Palembas Hardwood Floors appears throughout.

“Because of that, people feel they have to do a dark, heavy interior. But these clients had a dark, heavy interior. They wanted something more current for their new house, something clean and simple with lighter colors.” Barry’s vision included strategically changing the finishes. In the kitchen, she replaced the red-and-gold granite of the counters with white quartz and brightened the backsplash with limestone subway tiles. She painted the island cabinetry a soothing gray tone and maintained the natural wood color of the rest of the cabinetry in the space. There were hardwood floors throughout most of the house, but some portions of the floor were covered with red clay or decorative tile. “We removed the tile and continued the wood to create flow and simplicity,” she says. “It’s stained a medium brown and is distressed; it’s

easy and comfortable and has a low sheen that’s very natural looking.” The designer left the cream-colored Venetian plaster walls as they were. “We didn’t touch them,” she says. “They blended well with the gray and white elements I added.” Once the look of the interior shell was sufficiently lighter and brighter, Barry customized or found furnishings that bridged the old-world style of the architecture with the updated sensibility of the finishes. “The table in the dining room is made with a live-edge piece of wood that’s 10 feet long,” she says. “It has imperfections and an irregular shape. I looked at many slabs before choosing the one I thought was perfect for this house.” Cleanlined side chairs upholstered with off-white leather offset the rustic table and a reproduction Spanish-style buffet

In the courtyard, a forged-zinc armchair and side table by Henry Hall Designs is beside an oldworld style stone fountain—an existing element on the property. The space’s terra-cotta floor tile is a warm counterpoint to the metal-framed doors.

crafted from reclaimed wood. The designer then placed a modern low-slung sofa covered in cream-colored fabric with traditional-style wing chairs dressed with taupe mohair in the living room, where a massive iron chandelier from Ralph Lauren Home hangs above a large sculptural custom coffee table with a travertine top. Barry also used bold prints and rich textures to add interest to the interior’s subdued palette. “I did contemporary patterns that read as transitional because the colors are neutral,” says the designer, who appointed the dining room with a beige silk-and-wool rug that features a white geometric print. She outfitted the living room with creamy linen draperies embroidered with a sand-colored oval pattern and sofa pillows with white fabric that showcases a circular botanical print in khaki. For the master bedroom, Barry chose silk-velvet draperies, a tufted-leather headboard and a wool shag rug. “It was unbelievable to be trusted to do a project like this,” Barry says. “The clients’ story just drove me.” And it’s a relief to know that the story—a family who moves across the country with very little to start a new life in a redesigned house they haven’t seen—had quite a happy ending. “I knew when they were arriving, so I went and turned on the lights and put fresh fruit in the kitchen,” Barry says. “I lit candles and put on all of the finishing touches. About two hours later, I got the most incredible text messages, phone calls and even a video of the two daughters running into their rooms and saying that the house was a dream come true. It was so rewarding to see those little girls’ faces. I slept well that night knowing they were so happy.” And her clients slept well, too—all together in the bright and comfortable West Coast home they had dreamed of for so long.

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.
