EDITOR’S LETTER

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

CONTRIBUTORS

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

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

CHELSAE ANNE

Photographer / Palm Beach

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

LX_COM11_Contributors.indd 108

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

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

RADAR / NEW GUARD ALEXANDER M. REID 

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

ON THE HORIZON: Sister Parish Design, Elson & Company and Lisa Fine, among others, are joining the James showroom, and Ellis’ vignette for AmericasMart Atlanta debuts in January.

My goal is to give my clients’ homes a soul that becomes a part of them.”

 MAX HUMPHREY

My design style is grounded in tradition and balanced with modern sensibilities.”

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 114

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

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 116

ON THE HORIZON: Kehoe is excited about a large project built in the foothills of Ahwatukee, which will feature traditional elements and French country touches. Because it’s not a typical design for a home on a mountainside in Arizona, Kehoe is focusing on making sure the home seamlessly blends in with its environment. IN HER WORDS: “Our aesthetic is both elegant and very livable, and our approach is one of soft-handed guidance where we collaborate and listen to our clients.”

RADAR / DEBUT

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

PORTRAIT: ALBERTO LACCOURREYE.

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

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

LX_COM11_Radar_Crockford.indd 120

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

Model BEHAVIOR LUXURIOUS AND LEGGY, THESE SEXY SEATS STRUT THEIR STUFF TO FAVORABLE REVIEWS FROM AN ARTFUL CROP OF CREATIVE CONTEMPORARIES. WRITTEN AND STYLED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC PIASECKI

ROMY NORTHOVER ARTIST DESIGNBYNO.COM

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

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

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

SALLY KING BENEDICT

ARTIST SALLYBENEDICT.COM

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

KELLEY JOHNSON ARTIST JOHNSON-KELLEY.COM

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

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 161

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

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

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 162

WAYNE PATE ARTIST WAYNEPATE.COM

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

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

MIMI JUNG

ARTIST MIMIJUNG.COM

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

FULL OF GRACE THE PIECE: Stool 001 - Ebonized THE DESIGNER: Vincent Pocsik FIND IT: vincentpocsik.com THE INSPIRATION: Stature, anatomy and cattle—a curious but oh-so-successful grouping of inspirations that led to the realization of Vincent Pocsik’s Stool 001. Stirred by the bodily structure of animals, specifically that of the bull, Pocsik’s design was crafted with the same elegance, strength and balance as that of the stoic and larger-than-life creature.

JOHN HOGAN

GLASS ARTIST, DESIGNER & CONSULTANT JOHNHOGANDESIGNS.COM

Artist to artist: Vincent Pocsik’s designs hold a soft masculinity and elevated feel that derives from simple, fluid lines and hearty materials. The attention paid to the negative space is really important to the sophistication of these stools. On timelessness: Vincent’s use of traditional materials is tried-and-true and makes the most sense for a stool. So many designs are beautiful but solely so; longevity and aesthetics should never be exclusive of one another. Luxury nowadays... Seems to be going in two different directions: Some concepts are more complex and involved, while others rely on the simplicity and quality of materials to say something more understated. Stool 001’s strongest luxury is its restraint, and I appreciate that. There is something about this form… That suggests anatomical movement to me. I feel like maybe the stools want to go for a walk. Last call: This piece reads as masculine, soft, strong, chic and stable.

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

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

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

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

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

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

SALVAGED BEAUTY SARAH WEST

PHOTO: WADE BLISSARD.

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

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

Why work with salvaged materials? People tend to like pieces that tell a story, but especially with new construction, it’s hard to add a sense of history to a space. Bringing in antiques lends patina and character. You can have a drawer handle and see where it’s worn from centuries of use. That kind of context is always appealing. LUXESOURCE.COM / 101

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

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

IN THE

BLACK

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

These days, high-impact finishes in the bath go beyond mere tile and stone. Architectural flourishes, brass hardware and striking surface treatments combine to create unique spaces filled with character and an element of surprise. Take this Minneapolis powder room, where black and white is anything but basic thanks to a conversation piece of a vanity featuring a whimsically curvy leg. “The vanity is spectacular, but it doesn’t dominate the room because we kept the space dark and cave-like for maximum drama,” says builder Chris Van Klei of Detail Homes.

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

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

bench MARK

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

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

OPEN f lame

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

4 BALL & CHAIN

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

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

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

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

AGE

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

HOT seat

Kitchen stools tend to skew more utilitarian than glamorous. Not so with the Geisha barstool from Koket. With textured velvet upholstery that calls to mind on-trend shibori prints, it offers a perch that is both plush and posh, and its gracefully curved arms and sleek, polished-brass legs bring a new level of luxury to island dining. bykoket.com

THE LOOK / THE REPORT

9

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

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

KAREN WILLIAMS

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

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK PEACOCK HOME

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

JESSICA HELGERSON

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

window

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

EYE on DESIGN

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

Interior designer Laura Umansky and builder John Calloway updated this Houston estate, which features a colorful pool pavilion with checkered floors, and chairs and benches— by Bolier & Company, Christopher Guy and Century Furniture—upholstered in bright hues. Arranged into conversation nooks, the furnishings create a whimsical space for entertaining set against the more traditional original architecture by John Staub.

Above: For the Moroccan-inspired media room of a Santa Fe house, interior designer Chandler Prewitt chose a rich green wall paint that feels vibrant during the day and moody at night. “The lights give off delicate and playful rays in the evening,” says Prewitt, who worked with builder Douglas Maahs. “It’s really a lovely place to watch movies or read a book.” Right: In a happy coincidence, the existing wall color in a Portland, Oregon, residence happened to be a favorite of designer Jennifer Leonard’s. The light, fresh tone, which reads blue, green or gray depending on the light and the hues around it, provides the perfect foil for more traditional furnishings, including the drop-leaf Pembroke table topped with an assortment of objects in the living room.

New York-based designer Ernest de la Torre had originally planned to put pink just on his client’s sofas. “But she wanted the color everywhere,” he says. “She said it made her happy.” The custom coffee table was conceived by de la Torre and uses hand-dyed straw marquetry to get its plaid effect. Chairs in the sitting area are covered in a chocolate kidskin by Keleen Leathers.

San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk set out to update a Victorian home in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood by streamlining the floor plan and selecting a mix of modern and classic furnishings coupled with unexpected elements. His strategic use of color enlivens the entry, where he hung an Ellsworth Kelly lithograph above an English Regency settee upholstered with a vibrant Casamance fabric.

KEN FULK

Interior & Event Designer

How important is color in your designs? Color is very important to me. My color choices are usually inspired by something other than design: the caramel of a vintage car’s leather, the burgundy of my favorite velvet dinner jacket, the color combination from an old Fellini movie poster. What inspired you to upholster the settee in this residence (above) with such

a vibrant hue? Not everyone is ready to wrap their rooms in pulsating color, but most of our clients appreciate the bold design statements that have become our signature. So we’ll take a traditional chair or sofa and make it feel modern by upholstering or painting it with a bold color. Can color affect the mood of a space? There are clear “happy” colors for me; bright Hermès orange is my

favorite. And I love jewel tones—ruby, sapphire, burgundy—these are such celebratory colors that sparkle in candlelight and look regal when set against brass or silver candlesticks. Any go-to hues? I’m having a long love affair with green, and it’s not letting up any time soon. We have projects underway that are incorporating a hand-painted malachite finish on walls,

inlaid green-and-white marble chevron floors and chartreuse lacquered walls. Do you have a favorite way to use color? I love vibrantly hued walls, whether painted or upholstered. The color envelopes you and creates a magnificent backdrop for a room filled with great artwork and furniture. Bold color choices also show that you are brave and not afraid to live large.

TIPS FOR USING COLOR IN YOUR HOME 1. If you’re afraid to go bold, start small by introducing color through everyday accessories like planters, bowls or books organized by hue. 2. Define areas of the home using color through artwork by displaying vibrant pieces amid a monochromatic or neutral palette. 3. Look to nearby nature for palette inspiration: ocean blues, leaf-like greens and reds, earthy browns and gem tones. 4. Give neutrals a subtle yet interesting pop by bringing in metallics like gold and silver. 5. Don’t be afraid to take risks; embrace patterns and palettes that speak to you.

Designers Robert Brown and Todd Davis filled a Miami Beach condo with rich unexpected color, including a plummy Pierre Frey velvet on their custom-designed dining chairs that complements kaleidoscopic artwork from the owners’ art collection. Brassinlaid trim in the bird’s-eye maple dining table speaks to the designers’ use of metals for added warmth, depth and a nod to 1970s glam.

COLOR THEORIES

Whether used strategically with a couple of prominently placed pillows or as a defining moment with a bold piece of artwork, color often proves to be a major element of a space. And although the comfort level of homeowners may vary when it comes to diving into the rainbow, the following designers share how working with hues that are muted, brilliant or somewhere in-between can lead to showstopping results. Robert Brown: Along with our architectural designs, color is very important to us because it evokes moods. Much like a director of a movie who dictates our view, and therefore our thoughts and reactions, color has the same impact. Rich shades can promote contemplative drama and stir deep emotions while fresh, bright ones can evoke playfulness and whimsy. Great color design is always about a balance of visual weight, and color has weight. In this Miami Beach penthouse (shown), white walls allowed us to highlight and make more dramatic the sexy hues of plum, gray, gold, ebony and blue. Julia Buckingham: Color choice is probably the most important part of the design schematic. Clients’ personalities, especially their fashion choices, tell me so much about what is going to resonate with them and what colors are going to trip their trigger. My clients are pretty sophisticated with very discerning taste, but that runs the gamut from monochromatic Jil Sander to the full-blown theatrics of head-to-toe Vivienne Westwood.

LX_NAT34_EOD_Color.indd 149

Claire Ownby: I really like to see the location of the home and the views surrounding it when developing a palette; the surroundings can have a really big impact on its selection and success. Because I prefer more neutral hues in my own personal spaces, I don’t necessarily push my clients into using a palette if they aren’t naturally drawn to it. I don’t feel that vibrant color is necessary to make a successful interior; however, I am inclined to contrast textures and hues to create depth and interest. Caitlin Wilson: I believe a room will feel ordinary without a pop of color, so color is very important in my designs. I’ve always felt that people look the best in their environment when their space is a reflection of the way they dress, so a person’s wardrobe actually has a big influence on the palette and patterns I’ll use in a space. It’s rare that people don’t love the details they carry in their wardrobe—be it stripes or certain colors they gravitate toward— and using these elements within my designs ends up making people feel more at home in their space, even if they weren’t the ones to design it.

To keep the heady mix of patterns from overwhelming a Santa Monica, California, abode, designers Betsy Burnham and Max Humphrey relied on a meticulously crafted palette. In the wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, they veered toward pinks and purples, for example choosing a trellis-design Manuel Canovas wallpaper from Cowtan & Tout and a Peter Dunham Textiles ikat for the shades.

Above, left: Inspired by the vibrant hues of a vintage wedding kimono, Denverbased designer Petra Richards coated the walls of a Cherry Hills Village dining room with bright orange lacquer and upholstered the Chippendale chair seats with a vivid green silk-cotton by Dedar. She kept the silk rug muted for balance. Above, right: For a Marin County residence, designer Martha Angus kept to bright-white walls and used vibrant shots of color to enliven each space. In the pool house, she chose a bright ikat fabric, Lampung by Echo Design for Kravet Collections, to upholster a sectional and play off white Superelastica chairs and a Bocci pendant. Left: Touches of red in artwork and textiles offset the cashmere-colored walls in the entryway of a courtyard house whose palette was inspired by the mountain site. Phoenix architect and interior designer Catherine Hayes designed glazed window walls along the courtyard, allowing the lush greenery to figure into the overall palette.

For the kitchen, she went with marble counters and traditional cabinetry, which she painted black. “The entire space is like the perfect black dress,” Herzlinger describes.

JAMIE HERZLINGER Interior Designer

What influenced you to create this kitchen design? My inspiration for the design of the kitchen was a classic Regency style, in keeping with the more traditional aspects of design I incorporated throughout the rest of the condo. I gave the kitchen a solid color to work with—black—and then blended both traditional elements and modern ones. Why did you go with a darker palette? In smaller spaces, I think it’s much more of an elegant statement to use color. I use white when I have larger spaces to work with, but I wanted this kitchen to be a jewel box, so I chose black. How important is the design of the kitchen for a home, and how do you approach kitchens in general? The design of the kitchen and master bath in a home are equally important; usually, those two rooms are what make a home more salable. I approach the design of a kitchen first based on the clients’ needs: Do they have children? Do they enjoy cooking? Do they entertain a lot? These questions usually lead to the design and layout of the space. Is there one luxury appliance every homeowner should splurge on? A crystal ice maker that crushes the ice. I’m putting them in kitchens, bars, butler’s pantries and game rooms. LUXESOURCE.COM / 155

With the homey feel of this kitchen in a rustic home along the shores of Lake Michigan, it is no wonder the family dog is drawn to it. Wisconsin-based designer Jessica Jubelirer anchored the open-concept room with an island composed of rough-hewn beams and a zinc top. It is paired with custom barstools and an Ann Sacks backsplash.

Try as one might, shooing guests out of a kitchen has always proved to be impossible, and modern design thinking means embracing the fact the kitchen will inevitably be the central gathering place of the home. Today, designers are looking to create social yet completely functional spaces that serve both the chef and visitors alike, as revealed through the following commentary. Jessica Jubelirer: This was an extensive remodel of a vacation home (left). A lot of thought was put into how to make the spaces relate well to each other and continue the thread of the aesthetic throughout the house. Our goal was to create a kitchen that was inviting and felt like an extension of the living space. Everything was chosen with the intention of creating a gathering place.

a large stove, whether they cook or not. And people want special amenities such as wine storage, separate refrigerator drawers and warming drawers. I once worked on a kitchen in conjunction with Christopher Peacock, and after the wife got this beautiful kitchen she learned to cook and didn’t tell anyone. Then she had us over to dinner and surprised us. It was lovely.

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

Tashia Rahl: The three most important aspects of a kitchen are flow, function and material selection. Upon entering the space, the walkways need to be unimpaired and delight the senses with the feeling of an airy and uncluttered space, and the proximity of sink to cooktop to fridge to large open counter space is key. I strive in my designs to create simple classic spaces that bring pure joy: luxurious materials, big spacious layouts and efficient designs that deliver convenience. That being said, I also like to incorporate elements that our clients have never seen, such as charging a phone with no wire or plug, ventilating a cooktop like a jet engine, or disguising electrical outlets completely. The details must exceed expectations.

Scott Sanders: The first question I always ask is how is the client going to use the kitchen. If it’s a serious chef or cook and they’re going to be entertaining, they need to think about how they’ll use it. Clients always want

Materials

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

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

Residential designer Paul McClean and landscape architect Larry Steinle choreographed an elegant entry sequence to a Laguna Beach, California, home notable for its subtle materiality. The series takes visitors down steps hovering above a reflecting pool, and it boasts a glass-andmetal gate by Smart Metals and a stone fountain from AguaFina Gardens International in Sylvan Lake, Michigan.

Tell us about the goal of this bathroom. We had the luxury of doing a gut renovation, yet I wanted it to feel like the tile was part of the original room. Even though the materials are new, the goal was to make it feel older— almost like an old New York City lobby. The solidity of the marble helps achieve that. I would love to use marble in every job! What role do materials play in your work? I was trained as an architect, but being in New York, where there are already so many buildings, I’m not going to be building too much. Rather I’m doing renovations, and with those, materials really matter. They play a really important role in the tactile feel of the place. They evoke emotion and history, and I think they tell the story of the past and present owners.

New York interior designer Lisa Frazar chose to encompass the master bathroom of this Upper East Side townhouse in marble as a nod to the home’s history. The marble walls and tub from Urban Archaeology are softened by the glow of brushed-nickel wall sconces by Waterworks.

How do the materials you use in historical projects compare with those you use in contemporary ones? This townhouse is the only historical project that I’ve ever worked on. Most of my work is contemporary. In this situation, I insisted on plaster walls. In every public space, we used old-style plaster. We hired a company that does everything on-site. I wanted to make it feel like a real craftsman put it together. It was about going back in time and trying to think about how things were made then. LUXESOURCE.COM / 163

MATERIAL WORLD

Few things prove as important to establishing the feel of a space as choosing the right materials. The rustic warmth of reclaimed weathered wood lining a wall provides instant character, while the appearance of marble or concrete can transform a space with a modern or industrial lean. In addition to aesthetics, as the following professionals discuss here, the right materials can open up new design possibilities, offer sustainable solutions and provide a tactile, hands-on connection with our built environment.

ASSOCIATES. CUDMORE HEADSHOT: BRANTLEY PHOTOGRAPHY. HESS HEADSHOT: ANAIS BENOUDIZ.

Briston Peterson: All of the reclaimed materials for this home (left) were handselected by the Brikor Associates team from Montana Reclaimed Lumber. The space is very contemporary and the materials provide clean lines, but they still feel warm and inviting. The use of reclaimed materials continues to be prevalent in the Aspen market, as often the project team is sensible to sustainability. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the use of these materials move from authentic reclaimed structures to applications in contemporary homes. Terry Cudmore: For building materials, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to say that some of the new porcelain, glass and ceramics tiles that we have been using instead of natural marble or granites are incredible to work with. Porcelain tiles that look like wood are really trending right now; they are amazing, and we have been incorporating them indoors for flooring as well as outside in ceilings, walls and decking. The quality of man-made materials has improved drastically. Half of our countertops are

made up of products from such companies as Caesarstone and Neolith. Sustainability is also very important when it comes to materials. The combination of new cellulose insulation, high-efficiency air conditioning and high-performance windows has greatly reduced energy use. That combined with homes that use only LED lighting make for spaces that are far more energy-efficient. Andee Hess: There are a lot of fantastic Postmodern-looking plastic composites coming out right now that have a faux terrazzo/confetti feel. I find them super interesting because of the way they are able to create an organic and flawed material with lots of character. Recycled content is also crucial, and manufacturers are doing amazing things with it. We recently specified a rosewood veneer for a coffered restaurant ceiling. Real rosewood was too expensive for the project, but we were able to find a composition veneer that looks really cool, and is somehow saving the planet at the same time. Win/win!

ALL ABOUT:

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

ESSENTIAL TIPS ON ARCHITECTURE

THIS PAGE: SANCHEZ ROOM PHOTO: NICK JOHNSON. OPPOSITE: SANCHEZ HEADSHOT: CLAUDIA CEBRIAN.

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

JOSE L. SANCHEZ Architect

Tell us about the plan for this space. We wanted this foyer to feel almost like an exterior, creating a transitional space that welcomes with framed, uninterrupted views of the garden and pool. The home is an H-shaped design, so the glass-lined entry acted as the bridging element between the two main wings of the house. Did the lighting play an important role? Natural light is the most essential tool for expressing the quality of a space. In our work, we try to find unconventional ways of using it, whether filtering sunlight through high clerestories or through narrow low windows where views need to be controlled. We particularly love incorporating glass and double-height volumes into our projects whenever it’s appropriate. And this worked so well here—the abundance of natural sunlight creates such a sense of well-being, all due to the generously scaled entry sequence.

Miami architect Jose L. Sanchez was influenced by his clients’ Venezuelan roots and Latin modernist homes in general to design this light and bright stunner in Key Biscayne, which in turn transformed it into the perfect setting for a home full of exclusive artifacts and sculpture.

LX_NAT34_EOD_Architecture.indd 171

And the materials? We love how the materials that were chosen bring the outdoors into the foyer, and we used similar elements for both the exterior and interior spaces. That white monolithic terrazzo was a particularly excellent choice. Terrazzo is seamless, with a reflective quality that beautifully amplifies the effect of the natural lighting pouring through the tall glass.

Vertical expanses of Italian travertine give a house in Scottsdale, Arizona, a modernist edge and make it gleam from afar like a jewel. Throughout, “the home’s color palette spun off the travertine’s silvery greige color, which is both warm and serene,” says architect C.P. Drewett, who worked with builder Mark Laidlaw. Drewett persuaded the owners to include a 15-by-40-foot infinity lap pool, adding sculptural value.

THE ART OF ARCHITECTURE Architecture is critical on many levels, the most obvious being it determines the physical environment in which we live. While there are many architectural styles—from modern to traditional—the best designs seem to consider not only the homeowners but also the surrounding environment. We asked a few renowned design pros from around the country to divulge some of the influences behind their work. C.P. Drewett: The site of the home is my absolute point of origin. Here (above), the architecture was a direct result of the boulder-strewn site at the base of Pinnacle Peak, and I wanted the design to echo the stacking, random nature of Pueblo architecture, merged with modernism. The vein-cut travertine, which is highest on the material hierarchy, provided a coursed structural module—making it the primary building component—and the zinc fascia gives a crisp modern edge to the cantilevered patio elements. Don H. Aitken: We are finding many of our clients are leaning toward floor plans with fewer but larger and more open spaces. Some of our houses appear, from the exterior, to follow a more traditional room layout, but many have open, flowing floor plans. Also, by developing connections to exterior spaces, like covered porches or terraces, we can facilitate and enhance our client’s lifestyle.

Jim Olson: The movement toward a more relaxed lifestyle that is also sustainable and in tune with nature appeals to me. I think a less ostentatious style fits the world better now—I like a more low-key approach using muted colors, natural materials and a design that weaves architecture into its setting.

Cari Walls: My business partners, Lionel Morrison and Mark Dilworth, and I think in terms of building blocks of space—proportion, light, volume, repetition, surface, mass and rhythm. Instead of conventional, restrictive floor plans imposing particular patterns of use, Lionel concentrates on fluidity, allowing everyday activities to happen seamlessly, spontaneously and beautifully. These flexible “hubs” also occur throughout Mark’s work at Dallas’ NorthPark Center, where the introduction of light and volume at key intersections creates truly powerful moments.

Chicago architect Kathryn Quinn designed a Calistoga, California, home with a layout that gives the feeling of having been added to over time. The materials also underscore that idea. “If a building was constructed at the turn of the century and then added onto 30 years later, the products would be different,” says builder Ryan Eames, who worked with partner and general superintendent Jack Wagoner on the house. “So we used different windows—some are black aluminum and some are clear anodized aluminum.”

Living Spaces If there’s one room in the house that most embraces a homeowner’s personality, it’s the living room. This is where choices such as bold color and crazy patterns can come out to play and where a homeowner’s love of antiques, modern furniture or artwork are as welcome in the space as a close friend.

What did you do to make this space livable and chic? Here, we merged style and comfort—we chose furnishings that created luxurious and comfortable seating areas. The wing chairs and tufted sofa bring that luxurious look and feel, but are extremely comfortable to sit in. How do you create a dialogue between a living space and the architecture? It’s so important for interiors and architecture to speak to each other, and the way to make that happen seamlessly is through furnishings, textures, fabrics and the overall vibe or aesthetic. What’s your MO when it comes to creating a color palette? Most of my clients hire me for monotone and faded hues, and then I add in pops of color. In what way do you approach lighting in living spaces? To me, lighting is one of the most important elements. It brings the mood to the room and uniqueness to the setting. I usually start with a lighting plan very early on in the design process. LUXESOURCE.COM / 181

CREATING THE MOOD

There are so many integral factors that go into designing a living space that satisfies a client’s wants and needs. Materials, color and furniture are just a few necessities that define a place for family and friends to gather. Creating an ideal reflection of a client is about finding that perfect balance of all aspects, and we turned to the following designers for their thoughts on how to put it all together. Thomas Jayne: Beauty was the point of inspiration for this living room (shown), as the pattern on the walls is based on an 18th-century dress silk; I love the play of the flowers against the architecture. The key to any living space is to have a comfortable place to sit and talk. If you don’t have that, then you don’t have a living space. After that, it’s what captures your eye. There should always be something to focus on. Jacques Saint Dizier: Good lighting can change the character and ambience of any room. My three rules of lighting are: Never have a chandelier or pendant as the primary source of light; always try to use various lighting elements—down lights, pendants, lamps, sconces—to give the room a more dramatic feel; and everything should be dimmable. Tracy Hickman: Often, the aesthetic gets a kick-start from the architecture of the

LX_NAT34_EOD_LivingSpaces.indd 183

space. Mood starts with the floor plan— formal or informal—and fabrics, shapes and placement of the furniture follow suit. We use textural fabrics with subtle color changes to build up interest. Lighting and color are probably the most important elements in creating mood in a space. Robyn Scott: When designing, I often start with the color palette, using fabrics. Textiles provide inspiration for a room and excite the client to kick off the conceptual phase. For the furniture plan, I begin with understanding how the space will be used. I then look at the shape of the room and decide what should be the focal point, which is often a fireplace wall, an art piece or a statement sofa. But the key to a space is creating a seating layout that is comfortable for a party of two or a party of six. This happens by striking a balance of soft cushy pieces with interesting pieces.

ALL ABOUT:

Outdoor PHOTO: DAVID PAPAZIAN.

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

Landscape architects Steve Shapiro and Blair Didway planted tall evergreens around the perimeter of the back garden of a 1941 Colonial Revival in Portland, Oregon, to ensure privacy. Their other choices veer toward the formal side, echoing the classic lines of the home. The fireplace from Stone Sculptures renders an idyllic spot for the owners and their guests to gather.

Tell us about the clients’ vision for the outdoor space of this house. This home (right) is situated on a corner lot across from a public park, so the owners needed the back courtyard garden to feel like an oasis. Sitting here, they’re hardly aware that they aren’t at a summer house in Michigan.

EYE on DESIGN

How does the architecture of a home relate to its landscaping? It’s a significant source of inspiration, as are the site and client. This home, being across from Lake Michigan, told us we wanted a beachy feel, and the clients wanted a look that wasn’t overly manicured. For us, the home’s architecture was all about the bold textures of the Shingle style. What’s special about the landscaping here? We are lucky in Chicago in that we get four distinct seasons, and the garden gets to “change its clothes” four times a year. Our winter look, for instance, is dependent on texture and contrast. Evergreens contrasted with grasses and deciduous plants with strong sculptural forms are important when the plants are bare for five months.

Left: The homeowners of this contemporary take on a Craftsman-style waterfront home have a perfect view of the lake from RH lounge chairs. “The swimming pool was carefully sited to sit parallel to the lake and be the heart of a rear garden that radiates from its perimeter,” explains Chicago landscape architect Ryan Kettelkamp of his outdoor design choices. Below: A terrace between the master bedroom and the main spaces of a contemporary Paradise Valley house in Arizona designed and built by Andy Byrnes is the ideal spot to take in the views. Landscape architect Stephen Bardorf created a U-shaped planter to delineate the space, decorating it with the cactus he used elsewhere in the landscape. The custom triangle sunshade fabricated by TSM Control Systems protects Gloster’s Nomad seating and ottomans.

“PEOPLE FORGET THAT AN OUTDOOR SEATING SPACE NEEDS TO HAVE BOUNDARIES JUST LIKE AN INDOOR ROOM; IT’S HARD TO FEEL INVITING AND COZY IN A COMPLETELY OPEN SPACE.” –MIMI MCMAKIN, KEMBLE INTERIORS, SOUTH FLORIDA

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR DESIGNING OUTSIDE 1. Clearly define areas for different activities such as for dining, lounging or gardening. 2. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overcrowd the areas; allow for breathing room and space to wander. 3. Incorporate native plantings, which will appear to have grown naturally and thrive in the environment. 4. Be sure to provide cover from the sun when designing for the outdoors, so that guests will have a place to stay cool alfresco. 5. If you have a killer view, build the home around it and ensure it remains unobstructed when creating outdoor spaces.

In constructing a Boulder home architect Dale Hubbard designed to reflect a modern take on old mining structures, builder Kevin Morningstar wrapped the exterior with vertical stained-wood siding. The structure opens to an expansive deck, framed with glass railings, giving the house an indoor-outdoor experience. A dining table and chairs by Crate & Barrel stand near Smith & Hawken chaise lounges, which pull up to a fire pit.

She had The Willow Farm create distinctive woven garden beds to hold the plants and centered them around an antique urn.

As designer Nancy Heller puts it, she added “as much greenery as possible” to the grounds of a Los Angeles home. The seating area rests on a concrete pad, while additional concrete forms a sculptural backdrop for the fireplace. Lounge chairs from Janus et Cie and colorful woven poufs from Serena & Lily reflect the lively feel of the interiors envisioned by designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe.

BRANCHING OUT

Turning exterior spaces into outdoor rooms that act as extensions of the interiors, all while curating plant materials and respecting the land, is at the crux of today’s landscape design. And with the landscape architecture coming into play at the very beginning of a project, the result is a cohesive outdoor living space that holds as much importance as the architecture and interior design. Here, designers and landscape architects lend their thoughts on how to curate such a dynamic space. Amy Kehoe: While we are fortunate in Southern California to be able to more easily create outdoor living spaces, we still tend to embrace the fact that we are outside, thus not forcing too many interior elements.

obsessed with McKinnon and Harris outdoor furniture; it’s so elegant and well-crafted. For plants, I love anything with colored or variegated foliage, and sweet fragrant plants.

Todd Nickey: We always, however, try to keep a strong cohesion between the indoors and outdoors when possible. Living in Southern California, outdoor space is used almost as much as indoor—so not interrupting the concept, neither inside nor outside, helps give you a sense of a greater entertainment space.

Lewis E. Aqüi: My design style for the outdoors is dictated by a combination of factors: The client’s program or wish list, the desired architectural style, and the site-specific traits of a piece of property, all combined. The client’s lifestyle and personality, and our working knowledge of art, engineering, urban planning, sustainable design, green building and horticulture mesh together to create visually pleasing and environmentally sound solutions. I try to create outdoor rooms that are interactive and personally prefer a monochromatic palette with splashes of color.

Jarrod Baumann: Right now, I’m loving the mosaic pebbles through a company called Solistone. We are creating an amazing labyrinth with agate pebbles standing on end that will be quite stunning. Also, I’m
