EDITOR’S LETTER

Napping to NAPKINS As we were shaping this issue, with a focus on entertaining, I spent several weekends luxuriating in the art of doing nothing. My most taxing Sunday activity was deciding between sleeping in and binge-watching shows. Monday through Friday, the editors and I were bantering about the merits of plate chargers, reviewing pics of high-gloss butler’s pantries and exchanging secrets for throwing fabulous dinner parties. Meanwhile, on the weekend, I was idling away. It was a short run…

Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief @pamelajaccarino

PORTRAIT: LAURA BARISONZI.

One Saturday, after lingering in my pajamas well past 11 a.m., on a whim, I invited friends over for cocktails and supper. Apparently the epic “to-place-card-or-not” editor debate that week had knocked me out of my lull. I ran to the market and picked up loads of dahlias, branzino, Japanese sweet potatoes and asparagus. Friends were tasked with bringing appetizers and dessert, affording me time to iron our vintage tablecloth, polish the Georg Jensen silverware and set the table with my favorite Pillivuyt Perle dinnerware. Place cards were swapped for individual handwritten inspiration notes at each seat. Much popping of wine corks, lively conversation and dancing ensued. It was as pleasurable as a midday bubble bath followed by a proper nap. Entertaining, for me, releases the same endorphins as, well, loafing. I encourage all of you to carve out “nothing time” this holiday season; all the better to enjoy the revelry that surely will follow.

WEDGWOOD TAPS CERAMICIST HITOMI HOSONO FOR ITS FIRST-EVER ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

T

en years ago, when Japanese ceramicist Hitomi Hosono was an intern at the Wedgwood factory in Staffordshire, England, she would happily while away hours in the company’s archives looking at old molds, or sprigs, as they are called. A nature lover at heart, she was particularly drawn to the botanical ones with imprints of delicate leaves and petals, resembling long-lost fossils. “I was always fascinated by organic forms: the veins of a leaf, the shape of its edges and the layering of a flower’s petals,” says Hosono. Those sprigs left an impression, for her ceramic explorations over the next decade took on rich, plant-like textures inspired by many of the motifs she encountered. It’s a thoroughly fitting twist, then, that she’s returned to the place where it all started as Wedgwood’s inaugural artist-in-residence, the first such program in the company’s 250-year history. “There was always a synergy between what we wanted as a brand and what Hitomi was doing independently,” says Dik Delaney, global design director for Wedgwood. “The artisan program is about driving innovation back into the Wedgwood brand through pushing the creative boundaries of the painters and craftspeople at the factories.” Hosono’s vision certainly succeeds on that front: Her pieces incorporate new techniques of raised ornamentation, intricate layering and delicate carving, even piercing holes in the clay. The end result honors the Wedgwood tradition while moving the brand’s jasperware in a fresh direction. Invented by Josiah Wedgwood in 1774, the unglazed vitreous stoneware takes its name from jasper, the natural stone it resembles. Over the years, the pottery has been made in many colors, but is most recognized worldwide for its Wedgwood blue pieces, which are adorned with hand-applied bas-relief scenes of neoclassical

or botanical motifs. For this limited-edition collection, Hosono tweaked the color palette, opting for pastel washes that conjure wagashi, the elaborate confections served in Japanese tea houses. She even reinvented one of the brand’s most iconic pieces, the Portland vase, keeping the Grecian urn form but trading in the traditional blue color and frolicking nymphs for a cheerful aqua hue embellished with fern fronds. Prunus leaves, chrysanthemums and daisies

climb, float and sway on the surface of the other pieces. “Naturally, I was drawn to the shapes of flowers and plants I knew from my childhood in Japan,” says Hosono, who grew up in an area she describes as the Stoke-on-Trent of Japan, a region known for its pottery trade. It’s no wonder she gravitated toward those 100-year-old sprigs in the Wedgwood archives. “The details of the molds reflect a great respect for nature; I wanted these pieces to honor that,” she says.

FEAST IN RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD, MAXIMALIST INTERIORS ARE OUTSHINING THE ARTFULLY PLATED DISHES, PROVING THAT WHEN IT COMES TO DESIGN, MORE IS INDEED MORE.

Whether you dine out on the regular or just do a quick scroll through culinary destinations on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that restaurants aren’t the austere, minimalist temples of cuisine they used to be. Gone are the neutral palettes and quiet finishes that telegraphed seriousness and placed the focus on the food. In recent years, designers have taken an I’ll-haveeverything-on-the-menu approach to restaurant interiors that reflects a greater trend toward maximalism. Both Martin Brudnizki’s lavish revamp of Annabel’s private club in Mayfair, and the Glade at Sketch London represent the movement at its full-tilt, over-the-top best. Artist, designer and photographer Carolyn Quartermaine says she was given carte blanche to create the surreal, Technicolor forest interior at the Glade. “The design encourages the eye to weave in and out, never settling, and this allows the mind to dream,” she says. “For us, it’s more installation than decoration.” Designers on these shores are taking a subtler, but no less ornamental approach. For the Pink Cabana at the Sands Hotel in Indian Wells, California, Martyn Lawrence Bullard combined a mélange of Moroccan, midcentury and preppy motifs to create an eclectic,

feels more bespoke, distinct and interesting: “If you create a truly individual experience, people get excited about design again and become inspired,” he says. Quartermaine adds, “Sitting, eating and drinking in exquisite surroundings— these are things that feed the soul.” PHOTOS, CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT: PINK CABANA: COURTESY THE SANDS.

old-school country-club vibe. Conjuring a sense of place through layering is essential to Bullard’s process. “It’s about escapism. You’re creating a fantasy you wouldn’t necessarily experience anywhere else, so there’s not only a memory of the food, but also the memory of the environment,” he says. Los Angeles-based designer Matt Winter shares a similar ideology: “Life is hard— sometimes you need to hit pause, get out of your headspace and enjoy your surroundings for a little while, and the best design accomplishes that,” he says. One of his recent projects, the tiki-themed Lono in Hollywood, is a mash-up of South Pacific and French Colonial influences that leaves almost no surface in the bar area unadorned. Designer Daniel Alonso of the Bonhomme Hospitality Group took a similar tack when concepting the Chicago boite Beatnik, which mixes Moorish, Mediterranean and Balinese elements in an ornate setting indicative of its bohemian theme. “I think people today gravitate toward places that evoke a sense of history,” says Winter. “A lot of major hospitality groups are using designers who understand layering, and create spaces that are unique, and feel rich and lived in.

ith a background creating sculptural pieces and ceramics, it is no surprise that David Kaihoi would look to the interior design world for his next artistic pursuit. After moving to New York City more than 10 years ago and installing fine art pieces for interior designers, such as Miles Redd, Kaihoi’s passion for the creative expanded into a full-fledged love affair with decorating. Here, Luxe gets the scoop on the artistic inspiration behind his latest collaboration with luxury floor coverings manufacturer Patterson Flynn Martin. It’s not every day that you see metal used as a rug material. Tell us about this collection and how your art inspired it. Similar to my artwork, where I have a penchant for mixing materials, I set out on this journey not knowing where it would end up. Instead of working with pattern, I added metal plates, which was a departure for Patterson Flynn Martin, and the result is a multifunctional modern tapestry of sorts. The juxtaposing tactile combination of mediums as a decorative gesture is extremely interesting and highly unexpected. We love the interplay of neutral tones and textures. The materials are as raw and simple as they can be. Both the wool yarn—which was so fresh that it smelled like a country barn—and unfinished metal are as elemental as you can get, so there is a certain kind of purity to the pieces that I wanted to maintain. Not a single dye, paint or synthetic adornment was used, and that simplicity makes it approachable. What influenced the

“I’ve worked with metal before, but never in combination with a soft, woven textile,” says artist and interior designer David Kaihoi of his latest collaboration with Patterson Flynn Martin. Matriarch, shown here, is one of Kaihoi’s favorite pieces in the collection.

collection’s battle-like names, such as Highly Decorated and Breastplate? While I wasn’t beholden to designing anything traditional, this creation, for me, was grounded in historical precedent relating to suits of armor. The Arms and Armor section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is fascinating and showcases intricate metalwork on top of woven garments, so I was trying to achieve that exquisite blend of materials with a contemporary sensibility. Favorite piece? I appreciate them all, however I love Matriarch (shown above), because

there is something appealing and powerful, yet soft about it too. It has a beautiful, strong soul that is so inviting; you’re drawn to touch it and experience its comfortability. How do the worlds of art and interior design relate to one another? The best part of being an artist is experimentation and the pursuit of the unknown. And alternatively, as a designer, it’s about creating with a real purpose in mind. Together, they offer the opportunity to make something new that’s inspirational with a personal, original perspective.

RADAR / LASTING IMPRESSION

BEST in CLASS THIS SEASON, GIVE THE GIFT OF EXPERIENCE WITH IMMERSIVE ONE-OF-A-KIND WORKSHOPS. WRITTEN BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH

Unwrapping a pretty bow-adorned present can be a pleasurable yet fleeting moment, so why not think beyond the gift box for the holidays this year? According to a study at the University of Toronto, experiential gifts, such as classes or workshops, elicit emotional responses that strengthen the relationship between the giver and recipient, making lasting memories. The following experiences are at the top of our wish list.

CORE CURRICULUM ⊲

▼ TOP CHEF Italian-American chef Giuliano Hazan has a rich ancestry steeped in Italian food and wine. His mother, Marcella, was credited with introducing the United States and United Kingdom to classic Italian cooking. Now an accomplished cookbook author himself, Hazan has taken to teaching the craft around the world. Along with his wife, Lael, and expert winemaker Marilisa Allegrini, the chef leads a weeklong immersive workshop in Italian cuisine at the historic 16th-century Villa della Torre near Verona, Italy. In addition to hands-on cooking classes, the experience includes trips to food markets, the Allegrini family vineyards, a historic mill where risotto rice is processed, a caseifici where Parmigiano-Reggiano is made and an olive press. After all, you can’t have Italian cooking without wine, cheese and olive oil. guilianohazan.com

▲ LOVE POTION Borrow an idea from the Brits: Grab your closest pal and take a trip to Provence to create bespoke fragrances for an unmatched sensory sensation—in recent years it’s become a popular girlfriends’ getaway in Great Britain. Travel to La Villa Du Parfumeur in the perfume capital of the world, Grasse, France, to learn from the olfactory experts at the distinguished Maison Molinard, a family business established in 1849. Engage your senses in a scent session where you test 100 essences to find your very own curated combination. Leave with a perfume-making diploma and a completely customized fragrance in a classic bulb-pump flask. molinard.com 052 / LUXESOURCE.COM

2015: Fleetwood designed the first luxury residential flush sill, high-performing, selfcontained subterranean drainage system for sliding doors, known as the Sub-Sillpan. 2018: Fleetwood brought the Series 4070-T to market with the first luxury residential flush sill with certified water performance and inset finished flooring. In 2019 + Beyond: Fleetwood is introducing the first luxury residential water performing pivot door.

Our milestones, several patents, and impressive selection of proprietary designs speak to the close control, attention to detail, and demand for excellence that exemplifies our approach to design.

In 1961, Fleetwood was established with the purpose of making the industry’s best sliding door in Southern California. Fait accompli for the innovative company, known for its highly customized, elegantly engineered, beautiful windows and doors that last a lifetime. Devoted solely to the luxury home market, Fleetwood lives and works by two credos: “build it better, not cheaper” and “always innovative, often imitated.” With these in mind, the Fleetwood team works hand in hand with the architectural community, responding to their wants and needs for clients with groundbreaking, midcentury modern designs that blur the line between inside and out, perfectly. “Once we have taken on a design or development, our creative process entails expansive collaboration across all major departments within the company,” Chief Operations Officer Mark McCoy says. “It’s this type of collaboration that encourages a culture of idea sharing; something that is vital to our ability to engineer the very best products.” Set to release four new products over the next few months, with plans to release an additional one to two products per year, Fleetwood continues its trajectory of success. 2

LUTRON ELECTRONICS At Lutron, innovation is at its core. In the late 1950s, inventor, entrepreneur and business magnate Joel Spira forever changed the lighting control industry with his innovative, modern, electronic, solid-state dimmer—altering the way people look at light. This humble device was deceptively simple … and it was beautiful. For Lutron, this solid-state dimmer established a legacy of scientific prowess and design distinction, earning both admiration and trust. Beautifully curated lighting scenes require more than just control of electric light, so in 1993, Lutron entered the automated window covering industry, transforming expectations with the ultra-quiet, high-performance shade. Today, more than 55 years later, Lutron delivers beautiful, industry-leading lighting, shades, and temperature control solutions for the home. Enter Palladiom, an entirely new design collection of keypads and shades, one that redefines the norms of technology, craftsmanship and style—all hallmarks of Lutron’s years of innovation. In the creation of Palladiom, Lutron demanded no less than rethinking the engineering process, inventing new tools, new treatments, and insisting on higher standards of quality. As a result, Lutron challenged its entire supply chain, and the company, giving rise to a line of picture-perfect devices to fine-tune any environment.

WHERE HANDCRAFTSMANSHIP MEETS HIGH-TECH DESIGN Lutron takes great pride in innovation, with product design and user experience being top of mind. For many Lutron products, this keen attention to detail requires precision and handcrafted finishes. One example is the company’s beautiful new Palladiom keypads and shade brackets, which are hand-finished to ensure a delicate and uniform texture. Additionally, Lutron’s custom shading solutions are manufactured entirely by hand, with experts meticulously inspecting all shades before being shipped to customers. Materials make the difference in Lutron’s products, too. The Palladiom shade brackets, for example, are meticulously hand-finished and robust enough to support a 12-by-12-foot shade with a remarkably slim 3-inch profile. Additionally, Lutron collaborates with the world’s leading textile mills to provide fabrics for all shade styles, giving customers high-performance shades that accentuate any decor.

VITROCSA For window and door innovator, Vitrocsa, it’s all about the view … opening up spaces and bringing as much light as possible into the structure. The inventor of the first sliding door system (still the most installed product in the world), Vitrocsa continues to make a name for itself with frameless window designs that boast the narrowest sightline barriers in the world. It’s a feat accomplished by inventor and Vitrocsa founder, Eric Joray, who lives and works by the credo, “Never do anything that others know how to do.” Taking an artisan approach, Joray applies his watchmaking experience to every design, relying on his dedicated and motivated staff to bring his creations to life. “They live and breathe Vitrocsa products as if they were their own,” he says. “The fact that these successes are a collective effort, but still allow for individual autonomy, ensures that everyone feels they are personal successes.” While some inventions develop from the improvement of existing products, others evolve as a solution to an architectural need. Take British architect Norman Foster, who wanted to be able to open up the windows on a terrace so that the leaves were concealed. Vitrocsa responded by custom-developing the Turnable Corner system, which has become one of its flagship products. “Our systems are the product of unrivaled expertise and a constant quest for innovation, enabling us to meet the most ambitious architectural visions,” Joray says.

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

Foxfire, the bucolic 127-acre farm in the rolling hills of Maryland’s Harford County, holds a special place in Steven Gambrel’s design portfolio: It happens to belong to his best friends. It’s also a residence the designer frequents in the fall and winter months when the region partakes in traditional equestrian events and festivities making this an ideal spot for hosting get-togethers. Because this kitchen is a true workhorse in every sense of the word and one of the most heavily used areas of the home, Gambrel made sure to prioritize both form and function. The New York-based interior designer is a true master when it comes to creating beautiful, elegant and layered kitchens. This space, which was completely gutted and reimagined, is no different. srgambrel.com; foxfiremonkton.com Where did you begin when designing this kitchen? First, I surveyed the space and determined that we needed to significantly renovate it. The day begins and ends in this kitchen, and the morning light is particularly beautiful here. So, I thought about where the sunlight is best and this is where I positioned the sink. From there, I looked at the functionality of the room which, in this case, is to serve, so I wanted to make sure dishes and glasses could be seen and accessed quickly and easily. Eliminating upper cabinets helps aesthetically with the airiness of the space, but it also makes the function of it immediately apparent because everything is visible. Tell us about your approach to texture. The clients were looking for more neutral interiors; it was fun to rethink this kitchen in terms of texture instead of color. I love big, thick stone, so I put the countertops through a heating process called sweating that makes the surface beautifully uneven but still smooth and creates a patina of sorts. The cabinets are cyrus oak, which has a gorgeous finish but is very durable. I’m always thinking about materials that will be the easiest to live with and use. How is the adjoining storage room used? This area holds the silver and decorative dishes for serving in the formal dining room—we allude to this space as the servery. Food is also laid out here for more casual evenings, but many nights center around big dinners and having friends over in the dining room. I transformed this smaller space into a pretty open room that has a very calming spirit, especially with the silver wall.


“We wanted to make this space feel lush for welcoming guests,” says Terrain’s art director Laura Harris Twilley of this Monkton, Maryland kitchen designed by Steven Gambrel. To do so, she populated the table with amaryllis bulbs, paperwhites and topiaries. A garland intertwined with eucalyptus and china berries surrounds the tableau and the Vulcan range is original to the house.

For the dining room in his historic Greek Revival home in Madison, Georgia, Jimmy Stanton, proprietor of Atlanta’s Stanton Home Furnishings, created a festive mood with lush, fresh greenery and elegantly casual table settings. A custom pecky cypress and hammered-zinc table is companyready with a blend of antique black-and-white transferware, green Ralph Lauren plates, brownglass stemware and heirloom pewter pieces. A blown-glass ball chandelier and Cole & Son’s Nuvolette wallpaper make for a dreamy backdrop.

PAST 4 PERFECT When San Francisco-based designer Holly Hollenbeck set out to design the dining room of her 1901 Edwardian home, her goal was to preserve its vintage heritage while integrating modern touches. “Visualizing how the space was originally used was key in bringing the room back to its former life,” she says. An 11-foot-long antique English table centers the space and provides a refined setting for entertaining friends and family. To contrast with the original details such as the herringbone-patterned floor and oak wainscoting, Hollenbeck added graphic wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa, a custom-designed chandelier and Milo Baughman chairs. The result is an inviting combination of history and personality. hsh-interiors.com

RAISED BAR

Artisans Zelouf & Bell describe their furniture as “poetic pieces with resonance, mystery and secrets, evoking wild cocktail parties past.” Judging from the bubblegum-pink-and-brass Stones in a Pond liquor cabinet, seen here, that description seems apt—the doors open to reveal pale-blond sycamore storage with leather-lined drawers and an ivory shagreen bar top. Much of the duo’s work is one-of-a-kind, featuring luxe design details such as reflective lacquer finishes, aged brass, detailed marquetry and mother-of-pearl inlay, just to name a few. Pieces are made by hand in their workshop in Ireland, where they helm the creative process from inception to finished product. zeloufandbell.com

FREE SPIRIT FROM THE OUTSIDE, THIS NEW JERSEY HOME HINTS AT THE FUN, FRESH ROOMS WITHIN.

WRITTEN BY MARY JO BOWLING / PHOTOGRAPHY BY RICHARD POWERS / STYLING BY ANITA SARSIDI


D

riving through suburban New Jersey, it’s common to glimpse old, gracious homes through the trees. At first sight, this shingled dwelling appears similar to its 19th-century neighbors, but the crisp black-and-white exterior hints that this home offers something a bit different. As architect Douglas Wright says, “This is a Shingle-style with swagger.” The home is nearly two decades younger than many of the nearby buildings, and the originality that is foreshadowed on the exterior becomes a full-blown artistic expression inside, which was the goal of the owners, a creative couple with a taste for the unconventional. When they purchased the land, it contained a 1950s-era house that had been built after a larger lot was divided. “The former house had many quirks, and there was no way to update it to the clients’ taste,” says Wright. So, they decided to raze the existing building and start anew. “They wanted the exterior to have a seaside, Hamptons feel,” says Wright. “But they also wanted to do something appropriate to this area.”

The architect, along with interior designer Fawn Galli and general contractor Brinton Brosius, created an interior that indulges in modernity with nods to the past. “The detailing inside is tradition in the abstract,” Wright says. “For example, the molding suggests the delicate, curving trim of the more senior homes in the area, but is more clean-lined and angular.” According to Brosius, that molding is a prime example of the bespoke elements that define the house. “None of these details are anything you can just go to a store and buy,” Brosius says. “It was all made by us for this home.” The idea of handcrafted, personality-driven design was picked up by Galli for the interiors. “My inspiration was the owners and their sensibilities,” she says. “Like them, the decor is unselfconsciously hip.” That translates into spaces like the dining room located near the entry, whose statement piece is a table that’s literally crawling with character. “It’s white and covered with black images of ants, beetles, millipedes and moths—absolutely the last things you’d want to see where you eat,” the interior


Opposite: Architect Douglas Wright made the traditional lines of this New Jersey home more modern by employing a crisp black-and-white exterior color scheme.

“THEY WANTED THE EXTERIOR TO HAVE A SEASIDE, HAMPTONS FEEL. BUT THEY ALSO WANTED TO DO SOMETHING APPROPRIATE TO THIS AREA.” –DOUGLAS WRIGHT


designer says. “The piece makes a gesture of surrealism and fantasy that keeps things interesting.” The insectadorned item is juxtaposed with a heavily ornamented 18th-century commode and more clean-lined elements such as midcentury influenced chairs and the linear, bulbencrusted light fixture. A similar exuberance exists in the lounge, a room lined with a black-and-gold wallcovering and accented with silk draperies dip-dyed for a bright pink-and-purple ombré effect. Comfortable seating is the name of the game here, and the space is furnished with a roomy round chaise, a pair of modern chairs upholstered with African mud cloth and generous floor cushions. “It’s for kicking back and relaxing,” Galli says. “It’s a place for gathering after dinner.” 142 / LUXESOURCE.COM

That’s not to say every aspect of the home is highspirited. “The way you make it work is to allow the punchy elements to exist between restful, neutral moments,” Galli says. “By balancing them, you create an interior that’s engaging and interesting, but also quiet and comfortable.” The living room, though marked by exclamation points like bright-pink ottomans with brass bases and a rosecolored glass lamp, falls into the restful category. The soft gray walls are the backdrop for a custom, L-shaped sofa upholstered with a plush fabric. Equally cush are a pair of overstuffed leather chairs and a vintage Viggo Boesen chair covered with a fluffy, off-white lambskin. Another room with quiet notes is the master bedroom, done in soothing shades of purple and gray. Pale lilac

walls establish an air of calm, as does a custom bed in a sumptuous deep-purple velvet. Silver tones found in the sunburst print on the drapes crafted from Jim Thompson fabric and in the abstract pattern of the wool-and-silk rug from Chused & Co add both texture and soft color. Because outside living is very important to the family, landscape architect Cheryl Brown and landscape designer James Doyle created grounds that, similar to the interior, play with classicism and present-day cool. “We have a very traditional, symmetrical design that’s mixed with contemporary elements,” Brown says. “There are boxwoods alongside wilder-looking native plants; a

lawn sized for tossing a football with the kids and areas for grilling.” A pool house with massive glass doors provides an oasis for those enjoying the outdoors. “The wife wanted to load up a golf cart, drive it down to the pool house and not need to return to the main house for the entire day,” Wright says. “Everything they need is here.” The same might be said for the entire project. “When we met, they were spending many summer weekends away,” says Wright. “But after the house was completed, that’s tapered off significantly. In a place like this, being at home is like a vacation.”


Above: In addition to a changing area and shower, the pool house features a full kitchen, a dining area and a seating vignette. The mango-wood table was purchased at From the Source, and the chairs are vintage Eames seats. The large paper lanterns are from Pearl River, and the surfboard is vintage. Eskayel wallpaper lines the kitchen. Right: The pool house was designed, so the family would have all they needed while they relaxed. Avery Neoclassical single and double chaises from Horchow are shaded by patio umbrellas from Frontgate. The surrounding landscape is a take on classicism as interpreted by landscape architect Cheryl Brown and landscape designer James Doyle.

BRIGHT MOVES FROM CELESTIAL IMAGERY TO HER OWN HEARTBEAT, A SEATTLE ARTIST’S WORK CELEBRATES EXPLORATION. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY MELISSA KASEMAN

LUXESOURCE.COM / 149


W

ith her boundless curiosity, it isn’t surprising that Seattle artist Liz Tran takes an all-encompassing approach to materials, creating mixed-media works with paint and inks, graphite and even glitter. A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, Tran creates exuberant pieces that probe everything from human emotion to outer space. With ideas so vast in scale, it’s also no surprise that her work is evolving into three-dimensional expressions, most notably site-specific installations. “Everything comes from painting, but I get bored, so it’s helpful to work in different formats,” she says. Those formats have included printmaking and ceramics, as well as collaborating with Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell on a Gibson Les Paul guitar for a special VH1 Save The Music Foundation auction last fall, where it brought one of the highest bids. (Tran will quickly tell you that music is a huge influence on her work—lately it’s been Janelle Monáe and Kendrick Lamar.) This summer, she brought her vision to JW Architects, where she created an installation called Cumulus. The two-story project, curated by Sarah Hurt of Seattle Art Source, was an imaginative combination of two- and three-dimensional work with a weather theme. But there are more earthly subjects, too. A group session with a naturopath led to her Heart Map paintings, which debuted with Phylogeny Contemporary at the Seattle Art Fair this summer and which will be on view starting in November at Heron Arts in San Francisco. Using five-minute recordings of her heart rate, Tran “draws out the ups and downs, and then works off that pattern, putting it into painting form,” she explains. “We learned about things like how a loud noise will make your heart rate spike. I didn’t realize how tied our hearts are to us, emotionally.” She also has a new collaboration with the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum, which licensed one of her paintings (a work inspired by Chihuly) for reproduction on goods including wearables. The latter is something Tran is intrigued by, 150 / LUXESOURCE.COM


Seattle artist Liz Tran (opposite) stands near Cumulus, her recent site-specific installation for local firm JW Architects. In Tran’s studio are a collection of fishing floats (this page), which she found, painted and then strung together.


As part of the Cumulus installation, painted three-dimensional orbs hang from the ceiling (this page). “I cut thousands of circles a year for my work,” says Tran of the scraps (opposite, top) she often uses for collages. One of the artist’s completed paintings (opposite, bottom) rests in her studio.


since she has often made attire for herself. “I’ve been thinking about how to make my work more accessible, and working in ways that aren’t precious,” she says. “I’m always trying to get back to the place where I don’t have any expectation of things. I’m less judgmental on myself working in mediums that I have little knowledge of. Creating apparel is something I’d like to pursue with a designer.” In between her busy studio practice (she works out of the converted garage at her home in the Central District but dreams of a place in the country), Tran supports a variety of progressive causes, often donating her work for fund-raisers. “Artwork is a therapeutic exercise for me—a means of processing what’s going on in the world,” she says. “People complain but they don’t get active. Everyone has something they can contribute; give and make change in the ways you can. You don’t have to be stuck in the darkness.” And it’s that very spirit that emanates from her work. When asked what she hopes people take away from it, she doesn’t hesitate: “Joy. It’s what I’m searching for myself. I want to give people a joyful interruption in their day.”

F

our days after their daughter was born, Taylor Woodard and Matt Statman had a chance to look inside a house they had long admired, a Usonian-style midcentury modern dwelling on Denver’s historic Sixth Avenue Parkway. They absolutely weren’t going to buy a new home—they just wanted a peek. Once inside, that peek quickly turned into purchase. “I had just had a baby, so you have to wonder what we were thinking,” Taylor recalls. “But the architecture and everything about the house was so our style—we couldn’t resist.” When embarking on the remodel, Matt and Taylor wanted to proceed carefully. The couple—who are partners at an advertising agency—are visually creative by nature, but he tends toward clean lines and organic forms and she is drawn to Hollywood glam. “We wanted to preserve some of that quintessential midcentury design but also infuse the house with our own style,” Taylor says. So they turned to designer Danielle Wallinger for help.

Wallinger shared their appreciation for the home, and readily intuited their desire for sophistication and a more casual indoor-outdoor feeling. Working with builder Alan Lawrence, she made subtle adjustments and additions that updated the house while honoring its past (think refurbishing the original cabinets, recasting an indoor fountain as an interior garden and installing a cool bar with a brass-mesh backsplash). Inspired by Paris flats with airy white spaces and dark-painted window frames, Wallinger started with a neutral palette of black-and-white. Throughout the home, she also added pops of emerald green, a color that Taylor loves. Wallinger sought out stylish furnishings that wouldn’t overpower the home’s architectural elements, incorporating lots of refurbished vintage furniture. “Every piece had to resonate with both of them, which meant that every piece had to be unique,” she says. While style was important, so was livability. “Sometimes you see midcentury modern and you think, ‘I know that Danish armchair isn’t going to be comfortable to sit in,’ ” says Matt. “We didn’t want that.”

When designer Danielle Wallinger reimagined this Denver home’s serene entry, the existing water fountain was recast as a Zen garden whose curve mimics the rail on the original staircase. The oak floors, here and throughout the house, were refinished by Danner Professional Flooring.


Some of the homeowners’ books, artworks and other treasures are displayed on the living room’s original built-in shelves. The coffee table, featuring a marble top from Brekhus Tile & Stone and a brass base, was custom designed by Wallinger. A pair of swivel chairs from Essential Home provide stylish and comfortable seating.

Wallinger scoured local stone yards to find the dramatic soapstone that became the living room’s fireplace surround with visual ties to the coffee table. The Eames lounge chair near the window belonged to the homeowners, and the rug is from Design Source II. Above the setting is an Arrow light fixture by Apparatus Studio, while the walls feature a gold-leaf painting by Terri McClatchie and a black, gray and white artwork by Eric Blum.


Above: The kitchen’s original cabinets were refurbished, but brown backsplash tiles were replaced with white porcelain slab from Crossville Studios. Vintage Lucite and brass counter stools from Red Modern Furniture in Phoenix and mod lighting by Lucci Decor lend the room a cool vibe. The runner is by Porter Teleo. Right: Near the game room, a wet bar was installed where a built-in television once stood. The bar, designed by Wallinger, features custom walnut cabinetry and shelving and a perforated brass screen. The monkey lamp is from Seletti.


A commissioned mural-like work by Cleon Peterson, his first work using gold leaf, makes a compelling backdrop for the dining room. The custom table, made of a burled Claro walnut crosscut slab on a brass base, is designed by Wallinger. Dining chairs by Milo Baughman for Preview were reupholstered in a bouclĂŠ fabric. The rug from B.I.C. Carpets adds a color pop.

During the project, Wallinger nicknamed this study Salon de Jardin, but the room has come to be called the Jungle Room. Here, a striking Versace palm wallpaper in gold and black sets a glam, tropical tone. Retro-modern Cupa chairs by Jannis Ellenberger for CB2 surround a round table that’s perched on a bold, blackand-white rug from Design Source II. The pop art, evoking the style of traditional Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, is by Zane Fix.

A Manuscrit runner from Nani Marquina leads to the bathtub in the master bathroom. Greenery in planters brightens a corner by the window. Oliver Jeffers’ Measuring Land and Sea hangs above the tub.

Those concepts led to collaborations producing oneof-a-kind items. For example, a late-night email brainstorm between Wallinger and Taylor evolved into a fun idea for seating in the billiard room—a long, deeply-tufted banquette with small cantilevered tables extending from the base that gives the room a cool hotel-lounge vibe. Taylor says, “We pulled a lot of inspiration from our travels.” Art is another collective effort. The couple and Wallinger have a deep appreciation for artwork, and several largescale pieces are used in the new home for visual impact. For example, a wall-sized canvas by Los Angeles-based artist Cleon Peterson was commissioned by the designer for the dining room. “In some projects, you build a room and add the art at the end,” says the designer. “In this house,

we started with the art and used it as a foundation for the design. Here, we don’t have many patterns in the furniture. Instead, it’s the art that adds most of the color and texture.” Practical considerations led to the reimagining of the home’s interior water fountain. Having two young children herself, Wallinger cautioned that their daughter, once she got older, would be drawn to the built-in feature. As a result, it was filled in to become a Zen garden, which complements some of the home’s original Japanese elements, like the shoji screen-inspired doors. The parlor—which they’ve named the Jungle Room—was inspired by the Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air. Clad in tropical wallpaper, it now features a large pivot door leading out to a lush bamboo garden. Wallinger admits that


In the master bedroom, Wallinger created a custom-designed bed and nightstands. The bedding is by Kelly Wearstler and the bedside lamps are from Blu Dot. The dresser is from ModShop and the black-and-white chair is a vintage piece. The dark Venetian plaster applied to the wall behind the bed is a gleaming accent.

Turner and his team added wood slats to the dining pergola’s steel frame to lend warmth to the outdoor space. The dining table and chairs are from RH Modern.

the dramatic wallcovering might not be for every client. “It adds a huge dose of personality,” she says. “These people are no shrinking violets, so it’s perfect for them.” Another uncommon choice is found in the master bedroom, where a dark-hued Venetian plaster on one wall creates a sense of intimacy. “I absolutely disagree with the notion that black makes a room feel smaller,” says Wallinger. “And the plaster gives this room a wonderful texture, it’s almost like boardformed concrete.” Meanwhile, landscape designer Chris Turner created or remade several outdoor spaces for family living and casual entertaining, including a dining pergola and a conversation area with a fire pit and precast concrete bench that both mimic limestone. “For the floating bench,

we added Brazilian hardwood to bring warmth,” says Turner, who also incorporated dark-stained wood slats into the home’s steel-framed dining pergola. To stay true to the simplicity of the architecture, he installed beds with textural plants such as ornamental grasses. Today, Wallinger says that the couple has succeeded in creating a home that shines with personality while maintaining its original midcentury panache. “It’s a result of them not playing it safe,” she says. As for the couple, they feel good about the home that began with a quick visit and ended in a full-blown remodel. “I feel this need to protect the history of anything that I’m a part of,” Matt says. “We stayed true to the vision that started some 75 years ago, and we feel good about that.”

Outside, a precast concrete wraparound bench is designed to look like limestone, which was conceived by landscape designer Chris Turner. The ample seating it offers makes a casual conversation spot by the fire pit. The loveseat is from RH Modern, and the throw pillows are from Pendleton.

n an era of rapid change, there is comfort in tradition and formality, and those are the very qualities that the CEO of an edgy media company appreciated about a classic apartment in an iconic neo-Gothic building on the Upper East Side. The media maven, her husband and two children had previously inhabited an East Village apartment, a Chelsea loft and an Upper East Side brownstone. “This is our alternative to moving to Connecticut,” the wife says. “We never want to leave the city, and this is the last stop.” They were planning to be away for the summer, which offered a 90-day window to add some much needed pizazz to the stately but staid residence. The couple asked interior designer Elaine Santos, who designed their previous abode and knows their style well, to run with it. “They are a fun couple with younger children so they didn’t want it to feel too serious or formal,” Santos says. “Bold color does not scare them.” Inspired by midcentury designers like Jean-Michel Frank, Santos brought in custom clean-lined furnishings that bridge the gap between the apartment’s classic bones and her clients’ more modern proclivities. “We were reverent of the architecture but we also tried to push the envelope,” Santos explains. This can be seen in the upstairs foyer where a jumbo sofa with curvaceous lines juxtaposes the rectilinear architecture of the space. The curves are also reflected in a custom brass uplight. Removing one of the cabinets that flanked the antique fireplace, Santos points out, broke down the symmetry in the formal living room, which has classic Park Avenue proportions. In its place, the designer incorporated a custom settee with rounded edges and luxurious fur trim. Throw pillows covered in ochre, teal and other saturated jewel tones enliven the room’s pale gray-green walls and neutral fabrics. Adding another layer, the ceiling is covered with a gold metallic floralpatterned paper. “It glimmers,” Santos observes.

“THEY DIDN’T WANT THE HOME TO FEEL TOO SERIOUS OR FORMAL. BOLD COLOR DOES NOT SCARE THEM.” –ELAINE SANTOS

Illuminated by a whimsical brass chandelier, a reflective gold paper does the same for the ceiling in the dining room. The formal space is furnished with a cerused-oak Edwardian-style table surrounded by contemporary chairs, which are covered in coordinating velvet fabrics that play off of the coral-colored walls. “When it’s lit by candlelight, this color is very soft and complementary,” Santos says. General contractors Michael Gerosa and Victor Paredes implemented Santos’ design for a custom built-in cabinet in the dining room. They also incorporated a new custom corner banquette in the kitchen, and built a handsome bank of shelving for the library, where Santos allowed herself to let loose. Both the library’s new built-in cabinetry and the ceiling are painted in a dark green hue that matches the bold patterned wallcovering and velvet-covered tufted sofa. Yellow pillows and ottomans covered in vibrant fabric pop against the dark hues. “The wife wanted it to be playful,” Santos says. “There were no boundaries.” That is most apparent in her dressing room: A bright pink patterned rug extends from wall-to-wall, and the ceiling is covered with a colorful floral-patterned paper. “In the context of the New York City jungle, walking into a closet with an overindulgence of pinks and flowers allows you to feel pretty girly,” the wife says. “Nobody who walks in there feels like it’s a joke, but there’s a wink.” Serenity is just a few steps away in the master suite, where the metallic four-poster bed is flanked by cerusedoak side tables with white-lacquered drawer fronts. The room’s gray hues are balanced by layers of gold, most notably the grid of reflective hand-painted squares on the paper that Santos selected for the custom ceiling. “It’s a little unexpected, and I like that tension,” Santos explains. As with any renovation, there were bumps along the way. For one, the building has strict rules about when work can be done, limiting the number of productive hours in their already tight timeline. Despite all that, the project was finished and staged by the time the family returned. “We were all high-fiving each other,” Santos says. “The wife was a very decisive person, and that helped us to meet a very aggressive deadline.” As it turns out, the couple was right—this location is the perfect compromise between the city and suburbs. The sprawling apartment has space for everybody, including bedrooms that any child would adore (think lacquered walls and sophisticated wallcoverings) and a welcoming first-floor family room, where a large sectional covered in a deep burgundy velvet creates a cozy spot for the siblings to hang out with their friends (sans parents). “There’s so much chaos, just the intensity of living in New York City,” the wife says. “We’re fortunate enough to come home to a place that feels like a sanctuary.”


In a New York City apartment, interior designer Elaine Santos created a splash in the second-floor foyer with a vintage sofa by Vladimir Kagan from AFD Warehouse, which is covered in Perennials Fabric from David Sutherland Showroom, and a marble table from Lobel Modern. The flat-weave rug is from Keivan Woven Arts in Atlanta. A painting by Lester Rapaport hangs behind the sofa.
