Be inventive. When details are unusual, even subtly unusual, that’s exciting. “The kitchen is part of the décor of the overall home now. The details, the choices you make for it tell the story of what you love. Get excited about materials, and blend them in interesting ways. Consider open shelving, not just for pots and plates but for pottery and other statement pieces. Bring in artwork. Embrace clean lines, but make it dramatic. Details can be simple but sophisticated and surprising, too.”

Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth Winner of the 2011 Stars of Design Award for Interior Design

ISLAND LIVING

SETTING THE STAGE

ON THE COVER

After a renovation deadline for the record books, a Manhattan couple settles into an easygoing lifestyle at their weekend home in Hampton Bays.

Modern furniture serves as the perfect companion to an array of antiques that brings a family’s story to light on a quiet street in New Jersey.

A mostly neutral palette inspired by the surrounding seaside landscape equals soft sophistication in a relaxing Shelter Island abode.

An Anglophile and prominent theater producer sets up shop on Long Island, creating a sanctuary and creative space to further fuel his exciting ventures.

EDITOR’S LETTER

BEAUTY MARK

D

oes beauty matter? I recently listened as a designerfriend reflected on the perception by many that decorative pursuits can feel like a frivolous concern. Certainly practical matters of daily life—the commute

to the office, the contract awaiting signature, the phone call you need to return—can eclipse our quotidian attentiveness to art and beauty. With designer Jamie Drake at the Flexform showroom in New York.

I would encourage, however, that each of us make time to thoughtfully observe and pursue beauty, art and design in earnest, and tend to it often. Beauty, as expressed through architecture and design, has a profound impact on our consciousness. Structures and façades, space planning, landscaping, interiors, furniture, lighting, and art offer up a daily dose of inspiration, inciting emotions and reactions: delight and

Far from being flippant, beauty is an expression of creativity that grounds us.

awe, uneasiness and disquiet, serenity, wonderment, and reflection. Beauty lurks everywhere: in the minutiae of a peony petal and in the grand force of Frank Gehry’s DZ Bank in Berlin, which I stood in awe of earlier this year. Far from being flippant, beauty is an expression of creativity that grounds us. We should care deeply about the placement of a chair, the color of a wall, the pattern repeat of a textile. Pay attention, readers. Beauty matters.

PUBLISHER’S LETTER

summer. Welcome to the Summer 2013 edition of Luxe Interiors + Design; our tenth issue in the New York market, and our largest one yet. Another first this summer was our partnership with artMRKT Hamptons as the official media and design sponsor for this mid-July event. We’re also partnering with artMRKT for events that will be held in Houston, Miami and San Francisco. This spring was quite busy in Manhattan, where we engaged the design community at a panel on custom rug design at Doris Leslie Blau, hosted a block party to kick of the D&D Building’s Spring Market, and held an event with Boffi in their SoHo showroom to celebrate the opening night of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. We wrapped up the season by commemorating Ligne Roset’s 40th anniversary and toasting designer Cindy Rinfret at her book signing in Greenwich. After so many exciting celebrations, it’s important to take time to slow down this summer. I plan on planting my annual vegetable garden with my youngest son and am also looking forward to getting settled into our new offices with our Luxe team and working together on fun initiatives for the upcoming year. By September I hope to be able to enjoy the fruits of my summer labor, both at home and at work, and I hope you are able to do the same. Wishing you a relaxing and fruitful summer.

JANICE BROWNE

OUT AND ABOUT WITH LUXE This season we celebrated Spring Market at the D&D Building, Cindy Rinfret’s new book and Ligne Roset’s 40th anniversary. View more of these event images online at facebook.com/luxemagazine.

COASTAL CHIC Dynamic shapes and strong lines unite to present Foreside Home and Garden’s latest selection of outdoor furniture and accents. Originally established in the early 1990s by husband-and-wife team Claire and Mark Woodsum, the brand continues to evoke a charming coastal aesthetic by virtue of a mixed palette of materials and textures. Featured here, the recently introduced Market display table imbues a classic industrial style that functions as a unique addition to any outdoor setting. foresidehomeandgarden.com

This Long Island abode’s coastal position led New York-based landscape architect Edmund Hollander to craft a maritime-inspired scheme for its front entryway. “The overarching plan is a blend of the site’s natural environment of water, breezes and swaying grasses married with the home’s traditional Shingle-style aesthetic,” says Hollander. To orchestrate this distinctive combination, Hollander elected to conceive a water feature outlined in natural bluestone, enveloped by a lush plant palette of Japanese forest grass and fargesia bamboo. “The outcome is fully aligned with my design mantra, as it was born from the site’s specific attributes and influenced by the home’s contrasting architectural elements.” hollanderdesign.com

A brilliant pool of materials and an enduring emphasis on functionality provided the foundation for landscape designer Philip Roche’s elegantly appointed layout of this Tribeca rooftop space. To create the scenic retreat, Roche incorporated a generous assortment of limelight hydrangeas and English ivy, which blankets the walls of the terrace. “I arranged the foliage in a repetitive nature to cultivate an element of cohesion,” notes Roche, who also chose to entertain a sophisticated set of McKinnon and Harris furnishings to infuse this sky-high sanctuary with a consummate dose of glamour. plantspecialists.com

EXOTIC REVAMP Midtown’s Hudson hotel reveals a novel outdoor dining experience with its recent launch of Tequila Park. Formerly Private Park, the newly revived taquería and tequila bar infuses the iconic Philippe Starck-designed property with a Mexican éclat. “We endeavored to conjure the feeling of discovering a private garden in the midst of a high-rise concrete backdrop,” notes Verena Haller, who helms the hotel’s in-house design team. Affording a tantalizing menu of dishes from Executive Chef Steve Peterson as well as an innovative register of cocktails curated by resident mixologist Julio Torres, the tony locale presents a striking display of Aztec-inspired décor and a rich tapestry of tropical foliage to help set the mood, which is heightened by acoustic guitar performances on select evenings. tequilaparkny.com

Composed of a multilayered shade oriented in an abstract pattern, Kai manifests an alluring glow that is heightened when flanked by additional fixtures. designbyhive.com

Is there anything in particular that you are working on right now? I’m thrilled to be working on a wide array of projects, from historic 100-year-old landscape renovations to custom green roof designs.

What is your favorite material to design with? I’m drawn to plant materials such as evergreens and perennials with deep inky tones, as they infuse a landscape with shimmer and texture.

HARMONY

According to Kathryn Herman, a property’s landscape design should function as a direct reaction to its architectural conventions. For the layout of this Tudorstyle compound’s sprawling grounds, the Greenwich-based landscape architect was inclined to devise an English-inspired garden. To complement the home’s elegant façade, Herman chose to break up the landscape by virtue of several compelling focal points—two of which include the featured gardens, which display a vibrant selection of layered perennials and a carefully configured assemblage of boxwood hedges. dhda.com

Influenced by the charming courtyards and artisanal details he saw on a recent visit to central Italy, Annandale, New Jerseybased landscape designer Anthony Berardo envisioned a Tuscany-inspired backyard area when orchestrating the exterior layout of this Mendham, New Jersey residence. “The transition from the home to the landscape is a calculated process,” notes Berardo, who engaged a distinctive design featuring decorative accents such as “textural Boston ivy enveloping the patio walls and lush fescue grass separated by locally quarried granite.” crossriverdesign.com

garden luxury This season, Michael Taylor Designs introduces Arcadia, a posh array of outdoor furnishings envisioned by designers Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman. Garnering inspiration from nature, Fisher and Weisman outfitted the featured lounge chair with organically shaped legs accented by hollyhock leaves. “The collection speaks to the garden setting it was designed to enhance,” notes Fisher, who adds that the generous scale and sumptuous cushioning were necessary in order to ensure an elevated level of comfort. michaeltaylordesigns.com

VERTICAL THINKING Debbie Kotalic visits Worth Avenue often. But, she’s not in Palm Beach to admire the fashion-centric vitrines. There’s a much more visually stimulating display that inspires passersby to stop, shoot a pic on their iPhone, and ponder the site of an 840-square-foot vertical garden. “It’s a very tight abstract that both counters and complements the avenue’s sprawling bougainvillea and breezy palm trees,” Kotalic says. “Everyone sees something different. It’s similar to when people look at the same cloud. What they envision isn’t necessarily the same.” A landscape designer for green wall specialists GSky Plant Systems, Kotalic is intimately familiar with every aspect of this wall. After all, she devised it, and even included a hidden optical illusion within its leafy façade. “I’ll give you a hint...it’s very Palm Beach,” teases Kotalic, who collaborated with the Garden Club of Palm Beach and landscape architecture firm Sanchez & Maddux. Behind its allure lies an intricate network of irrigation and maintenance systems that ensures the installation retains its wonder. As for the Rorschach-inspired camouflage, further gaze reveals (at least to us) a wind-bent palm tree, swaying fronds and all.


BEHIND THE BRAND

ralph pucci

MAGNATE O F TA S T E THE VISIONARY PRESIDENT OF RALPH PUCCI INTERNATIONAL DISCUSSES THE INSPIRATIONAL POWER OF ART, THE BEAUTY FOUND IN IMPERFECTIONS AND THE NEXT BIG THING. WHEN I JOINED THE family mannequin business in 1976, all the other companies were doing very ladylike and elegant mannequins. So we sprayed ours out in high-gloss colors. We went where someone else wasn’t, and that became the design philosophy of Pucci from there on out. I LOOK FOR PIECES

that are unique, simple, timeless and, most importantly, that have soul. I don’t look for furniture that’s been mass-produced; I look for special pieces that have been touched by a great artisan and a creative mind. FINISHES ARE REALLY

For our Hervé Van der Straeten show in New York, we chose Billie Holiday and Count Basie. For Ruben Toledo in Los Angeles, we had a little fun and played early Marvin Gaye and Al Green. Music is the exclamation point to the mood we’re trying to create. I’VE BEEN WORKING with Vicente

good antique or vintage collectible; something large enough to notice like a console or bookcase. FEMALE DECORATOR MUSES: Nancy Lancaster and

Madeleine Castaing. Syrie Maugham had a cool thing going on, too. SUMMER WARDROBE STAPLES: I’m spending most

of my summer in Cape Cod, so am pulling out my Irving & Fine embroidered blouses and linen coats, and a pair of eyelet pants I bought in Capri about 900 years ago. I never tire of them.

FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNERS: Christian

Lacroix for textiles, the simplicity of Bill Blass, the structural femininity of Balenciaga’s draping, and Dior’s New Look. CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

French chairs, Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Gauche, lipstick, a space to truly call my own and lock the door, and a cocktail here and there. GUILTY PLEASURE: The

Santa Palm Car Wash in West Hollywood has the best hot dog in history… and I hesitate to tell anyone. YOUR PERSONAL AND DECORATIVE STYLE:

Personal: Wasp with a bit of Audrey Hepburn meets Auntie Mame. Decorative: Wasp invited Mame, but she in turn invited Peggy Guggenheim unannounced. FASHION HOUSE YOU DREAM OF HAVING A COLLECTION WITH:

Such pressure, but I’ll say Balenciaga. I wonder if they’ll ask me… BEST GIFT YOU’VE RECEIVED? A surprise

Fashion and interiors turn toward Beijing as this capital city dazzles with striking design. Shifting gears from traditional expectations—beloved chinoiserie, blue-andwhite porcelain and graceful lattice detailing—Beijing is setting a new tone where sleek lines reign supreme and regal undertones hark back to the Ming Dynasty. With thought-provoking architecture and Chinese culture as a muse, reimagined forms take shape, never compromising function for beauty, rather combining them seamlessly. Illustrating this notion is the Grace Beijing, a contemporary hotel in the much soughtafter 798 Art District, surrounded by world-class contemporary art galleries.

“I adore this chair. The curvaceous shape and simple upholstery is a winning combination. The twig-like, gilt-iron legs infuse it with an extra dose of panache. This is the kind of piece that would work just about anywhere, especially as an accent.” BRADLEY AGATHER | DALLAS, TX | THERIEN.COM

quickly gained a following of Hollywood starlets and famed architects alike. Bringing together factory function and the outré geometry of nature, the designer creates lighting installations in a style she describes as “industrial beach.” Gifford works to “harmonize aesthetic with lifestyle,” making fixtures both beautiful and functional. Based in the Hamptons, the company is best known for its Urchin collection, which now includes an eco-friendly version. But she hasn’t stopped there; she recently launched a collection of hand-painted wallpapers. “I realized I needed to offer wallcoverings that furthered the effect of the lighting fixtures,” Gifford explains. It comes as no surprise, then, that the wallpaper is made of metallic Mylar, a texture known for its luminous sheen. helenbilt.com; 917.449.9677

HELEN GIFFORD I GOT STARTED…

When the International Contemporary Furniture Fair accepted my application for a booth while I was still a student at Parsons. Plug Lighting was the first to sell my work, and soon after shelter magazines began writing about my installations for high-profile Hollywood clients. TOOLS OF THE TRADE:

A welding torch, my Leatherman and a limitless imagination. DREAM COLLABORATION:

Yann Kersalé, I would humbly sweep his studio if I were so honored with the task. CURRENT PROJECT:

Recently a government mandate went into effect that will begin phasing out incandescent bulbs over a 10-year period. As I thought about what would happen to those outlawed bulbs, I decided to repurpose them as a design element and created my eco-friendly lighting collection. WHAT DO YOU COLLECT?

oteworthy hotels and resorts typically bust through design convention, yielding interior and architectural declarations that push the boundaries beyond residential projects. Both

creatively looser and more experimental in nature, these hotel designs’ bold assertions are definitely something to write home about, especially when an A-list decorator is at the helm. At the Viceroy Anguilla, Los Angeles designer Kelly Wearstler employed unexpected contrasts of natural, neutral-hued elegance where rugged driftwood intermingles with finely honed stone; and white, black and gold interplay with the blue Caribbean waters. The resort’s Sunset Lounge, overlooking the bay, is brimming with a myriad of design nuggets. A mesmerizing Italian marble backsplash primed for sleek open shelving stands tall and bold behind a Carrara-topped island with warm wood chevron detailing. “Be fearless,” advises Wearstler. “Incorporate a bold use of texture in your home, in your kitchen, and mix different metals and materials.” As a stylish departure to the natural backdrop, sumptuous gold (a staple of the designer’s) and shagreen-upholstered barstools offer a fashionable perch to survey the culinary action. “The raw material has so much spirit and natural beauty,” notes Wearstler. “It’s Mother Nature in her finest form. It’s architectural art.”

Be fearless. Incorporate a bold use of texture in your home, in your kitchen, and mix different metals and materials.

LOCAL FLAVOR For the retro-inspired coffee bar at The James Royal Palm (shown at left) in Miami Beach—an area known for its Art Deco buildings—designer Lauren Rottet wanted to keep in line with the design spirit of the revamped historic hotel, and luckily, already had the ideal foundation: an existing vintage green glass wall and counter surround.

painted glass. “When I design a hotel, I look to create a mood specific to that property,” says Rottet. “I felt in this particular location that keeping with the 1940s and ’50s inspiration was appropriate.” Naples, Florida-based designer Jett Thompson also approached the Scarp Ridge Lodge’s décor, particularly that the kitchen, with an aesthetic in line with the boutique hotel’s Crested Butte, Colorado, locale. A take on the all-white kitchen, Thompson warmed up the potentially stark palette by working with blonde woods and almond-hued cabinetry and accents.

from a holiday to exotic Bali. With enticing beaches, sprawling cliffs, emerald rice fields, and active volcanic peaks, this ecological wonder may possess alluring topography, but it’s the

spirited approach to design that’s captured our attention. Encouraged by the lush equatorial gardens on the grounds of luxury resort Karma Jimbaran, Grounds Kent Architects embraced the untamed environment when creating this serene soaking retreat. Cast out of a unique blend of terrazzo, marble and

sandstone, the organically shaped bath echoes the design sensibility consistent throughout the property. “The villas are built to follow the design of a traditional courtyard found in a Bali village,” explains Martin Grounds, lead architect on the project. A wide stone path dotted with river rocks connects to the freestanding, open-air tub, overhung with palms and frangipanis, while the imposing stonewall anchors the retreat giving way to the natural plant inhabitants. The awardwinning Australian firm found inspiration amidst the lush tropical landscape and peacefully nestled this stunning display of classic Balinese architecture. “There is something truly luxurious about an outdoor bath in the sweet Bali air.”

Countering the at-ease Balinese dream is TriBeCa’s Greenwich Hotel (shown above.) The 88-room brownstone boasts spaces that elicit luxury apartments rather than mere hotel rooms. Hence, you won’t find any commonplace bathrooms on the premises, only traces of meticulous attention to detail.

And that pastel mint complexion? It was added to “bring a translucent element into the mix,” says Senbahar. “It was necessary to include this eye-catching color detail to draw you in even further.”

CHARLES P. ROGERS & CO.

WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? We strive to make each design we produce functional, proportioned and beautiful, so we reference historical and contemporary interpretations when designing. WHAT LED YOU TO YOUR CURRENT PROFESSION? Our company has been in the bedding business since 1855. We have served generations of discriminating customers, interior designers and many of New York’s best-known hotels. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT? We have recently invested an enormous amount of time and energy into our new mattress factory, where we build mattresses based on our new coil system. It produces proprietary coil designs when combined with specific layering of padding materials.

For more than a century, Charles P. Rogers & Company has been known as New York’s secret source for unique beds of superior quality. Thanks to commitment, experience and seven generations of loyal customers, it remains a reliable force in the design community today. From traditional to contemporary; to sleigh beds to platform beds to upholstered beds; Charles P. Rogers & Company is known for innovative products and as a benchmark in quality and style. All of its beds are exclusive designs and made in its own factories. The company uses authentic materials and processes in construction and pays particular attention to proportion and detail in order to retain the integrity of the original design while accommodating contemporary bedding sizes. All of the products are made to the same high standards. In order to provide the highest level of service and accurate product information, Charles P. Rogers’ policy is to sell direct rather than through other retail and wholesale outlets. Whether ordering online, calling or visiting in person, the professionals at Charles P. Rogers are available to help in any way they can. They are well versed in the technical aspects of all products and qualified to assist in selecting the right style to suit particular tastes and needs.

Secret Source: Tucked behind a historic storefront in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, the Charles P. Rogers factory showroom is just around the corner from its original location on Sixth Avenue.

Paris Sleigh Bed: This French sleigh bed design has a charming balance of proportion and detail. Hand-forged of sturdy, solid-iron bar, it features beautifully detailed scrollwork, elegant feathers as joinery and matching decorative rails.

Newhouse Bed: Classic 20th-century design elements are elegantly applied in Charles P. Rogers’ original Newhouse bed. Clean and precise, the upholstered headboard is offered in a selection of full-grain leathers. The solid mahogany frame is finished to complement the leather.

For more than 150 years our business proposition has been simple: “Make the finest beds available.”

Vintage Chestnut Leather Wing Bed: Based on the iconic Wing chair, Charles P. Rogers’ leather Wing bed is generously proportioned and highly detailed with hand-applied nailheads tracing the graceful shape and solid mahogany rails and feet.

Barcelona Bed and Handcrafted Mattress: Crafted from solid mahogany, the Barcelona platform bed is one of Charles P. Rogers’ most popular, original designs. Rogers’ mattresses are still made to order at their factory, with a choice of comfort options.

WHICH PROJECTS HAVE BROUGHT YOU THE MOST SATISFACTION? All projects bring enormous satisfaction, knowing our sterling reputation is being upheld. I especially enjoy working with and learning the history behind pieces we crafted decades ago.

CARLYLE CUSTOM CONVERTIBLES, LTD. More than 50 years ago, Albert deMatteo, founder of Carlyle Custom Convertibles, responded to an overwhelming demand for alternative bedding to meet the needs of Manhattan’s high-end residences. By introducing custom-tailored sleep sofas, daybeds and trundles that paired space-saving innovation with the finest elements of upholstered design and high-quality craftsmanship, deMatteo’s modest Upper East Side storefront quickly became a Manhattan icon. For the past 30 years, deMatteo’s son, CEO Darren deMatteo, has continued the tradition of quality, comfort and design from two showrooms in Manhattan and a factory showroom in New Jersey. Known for consistent, high-quality craftsmanship, Carlyle also provides its clients with a vast selection of cushion options and styling details to accommodate their precise specifications. Such customized work requires personalized relationships based on quality, consistency and comfort—a direct reflection of the pride expressed by the entire Carlyle team.

“Each of our pieces expresses a solid sensibility for design, a timeless quality that will last for generations, and must-have comfort.” –DARREN DEMATTEO, CEO

HOW DO YOU DEFINE A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT? It’s in the wow and the appreciation you get from a client that makes it all worth it. Turning a vision into a reality. HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR CLIENTS WOULD CHARACTERIZE YOU? Trustworthy, thoughtful and caring. I give my full attention to the wants and needs of each and every one of my clients, always! WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT? We are working on two large projects. Both women, retired, are looking to build their dream house, somewhere they can relax and enjoy life. My goal is to help them create a space that will give them their wants, needs and a place to call home.

HAMPTON DESIGN INTERIORS, INC. The spaces in which we live tell a story of whom we are, whom we love, what we like to do and how often we like to do it. Whether designing an elaborate kitchen, remodeling a bathroom or transforming an entire home, Peggy Fruin’s primary goal is to find the essence of her client’s style and ensure it is reflected in their surroundings. “I want to know all about my client: whether they cook or like to entertain; are they super clean or not so much; do they like cool colors or warm colors; and do they want a space that is simply beautiful or a space fit for a chef,” shares Fruin. “Tell me about you. How do you function in your kitchen?” Established in 1998, Hampton Design Interiors has grown into a leading kitchen and bath design firm, serving residential and spec-home projects throughout the Hamptons, New York City and Long Island. Blending the personal with the practical, Fruin and her team of designers strive to create interior spaces that enhance and invigorate the lives of its owners. “I want the client to walk in and have that thrill that we gave them what they wanted—and more,” says Fruin.

“At the end of the day, for me, it’s all about the wow factor.” –PEGGY FRUIN, OWNER

A house for all seasons, it features an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining. The natural light is a complement for the slate blue lacquer cabinets, Caesarstone countertops and back-painted glass upper cabinets with no hardware for a sleek unified look.

This Southampton Village house was renovated to bring modern, sophisticated touches into the home. The chef-style kitchen features traditional white inset cabinets, Carrera marble counters and Sub-Zero/Wolf appliances.

ike many homes ripe for a renovation, this 1970s Hampton Bays residence had long suffered an identity crisis. Its former owners had inflicted a heavy hunting lodge aesthetic upon it, complete with wall-mounted

deer heads, paisley wallpaper and dark mahogany floors. Luckily, when the house went on the market, a Manhattan couple— he’s a financier, she’s in the film industry—recognized its charm and potential. “It was a big house with unbelievable water views and we thought it would be a fantastic place to host family and friends,” says the wife. “But we knew it needed some work.” What started out as a small-scale, four-month remodel—ready just in time for a Memorial Day barbecue—soon morphed into an extensive rehab. Although the scope of the project shifted dramatically, the deadline was resolute, and designer Steffani Aarons and architect Steven Wakenshaw were hired to conquer the monumental task.

In the living room, 3-globe bubble sconces by Lindsey Adelman play off the other circular elements in the space: a Jens Risom ottoman and a mirror from Ercole Home. The Big chairs, also by Risom, are upholstered in a plush Short Shag by Schumacher.

Working alongside them was builder John Devito, who noted, “While our team worked some very late nights to meet the deadline, a lot of the credit goes to the design team. Because of such a streamlined communication process, we were able to complete a project in four months that would usually take a year.” Wakenshaw restored the multicolored, gingerbread-like exterior to its quintessential Hamptons glory using weathered cedar shingles. He also ousted the large, densely mullioned windows in favor of expansive panes that liberated the sun and the views. “The existing house definitely had a rather muddled aesthetic,” says the architect. “But we simplified the house to harmonize better with its surroundings.” Also restored to their full Hamptons glory were the outdoor areas, which Wakenshaw collaborated on with landscape designer Stephen Tupu. “The site was big enough to allow us to really create a variety of exterior spaces that fulfill many purposes for the family throughout the day,” explains Tupu. “Spaces like the outdoor dining area, the terrace and the pool serve as a prime play area for the kids, but easily transition into chic entertaining areas for the adults in the evening.”

Inside, the dark floors were replaced with hardwearing white oak, which also contributed to the brightening of the home and its beachy vibe. While the homeowners desired some kind of nautical tribute for the décor, they preferred a subtler approach. “We didn’t want the house to be inundated with shells and anchors,” says the wife, who asked Aarons to derive inspiration for the interior design from two silk pillows she picked up in Thailand—their vibrant hues representing the sun (orange) and water (turquoise). In the combined kitchen and dining room, for example, turquoise shows up in the Ann Sacks Gotham tiles that line the backsplash— their embossed pattern simulating a rippling water effect. Surrounding the glass-topped Paul Mathieu dining table are iconic Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs in a saturated aqua blue.

White lacquered cabinets and sleek Caesarstone countertops serve as a blank canvas to showcase the home’s trademark colors. The turquoise Gotham tiles by Ann Sacks create an aquatic backsplash and the Onda counter stools from Design Within Reach feature a burst of orange.


Forgoing the formal dining room, this casual kitchen nook adds to the home’s breezy vibe. A set of Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs in a rich turquoise picks up on the water just beyond the expansive new panes. A Paul Mathieu table from Ralph Pucci International takes up little visual real estate, and is part of a supporting cast for the main attraction outside.


The pool area is also a reflection of the environment— new pavers are made of local bluestone and the plantings are indigenous to the area. Contour chaise lounges and their bright orange padding evoke a retro era. Right: Orange is mirrored in the Ocean Master Max umbrellas by Tuuci.

To make sure that the home’s trademark colors would pop, they were anchored into a monochromatic background. Strong silhouettes in the form of, say, the living room’s partially domed Jens Risom Big chairs— a modern take on the classic wing variety—and the crescent-shaped Vladimir Kagan Couture sofa in the family room help create sculptural interest in such a neutral context. In the master bedroom, however, the ocean shading is, well, left to the ocean. Thanks to the room’s corner location, a curtain wall of glass provides a vast panorama of the water. “You almost feel like you’re on a boat,” says Aarons, who dressed the room in tones of gray and white to play up the deep blue outside, but included soft and shaggy textures to evoke warmth and comfort—a clever tactic that keeps the view from stealing the show. The master bath is more overt about such things; a vibrant blue and green mosaic tile wall from Italy is practically a floorto-ceiling art piece—an unapologetic, and very pretty, attention seeker.

Color isn’t the only element providing depth throughout the home. A myriad of textures, a vast flokati rug, for instance, gives the family room a billowy air; the white lacquered kitchen cabinets are a slick touch; and the new stone fireplaces go a long way toward building character in what could be considered a brand-new house. However, it’s the family’s prized possessions, ranging from Aboriginal paintings to edgy black-and-white photography, that genuinely create dimension in the home. “It’s these layers of our lives that make a house feel truly lived-in,” says Aarons.

n a leafy community in eastern New Jersey, a couple found a home that would suit their growing family. The 100-yearold East Coast cedar shake house had no shortage of charms, including a steeply pitched roof and gables, generous rooms

and lovely architectural details. So, at least initially, the couple could overlook the home’s tiny kitchen and decidedly feminine decoration— a collage of pink and mint green chintz and flowered wallpaper. Upon settling in, though, they began renovating the home to suit their taste and modern lifestyle, tackling a few rooms at a time and enlisting the help of interior designer Frank Webb, who had once worked for the husband in finance, and his partner Matthew White. “It was fun, because they were with us in the early days of our design business, and we all kind of grew together,” Webb says. Webb and White started with the entryway and family room, blending traditional elements with modern flair. “I think one reason that the homeowners were attracted to us—besides knowing and loving

understanding of antiques, but with a fresh outlook.” Because the couple and the design duo are good friends, they all survived some light-hearted tussling. “The homeowners had some leather pieces that they were convinced had to stay, and that we were convinced had to go, and we finally won out on that,” White quips. Thanks to the designers’ expert touch—and the couple’s well-behaved kids—the design works for the whole family. “We wanted to have nice things, but we have too much traffic in our house to have a home that’s a museum,” the husband says. “There aren’t any rooms that are off-limits to anybody.” LUXE INTERIORS

Eventually, it was time to revamp the small kitchen. The renovation— coordinated by builder Ernst Hofmann, who marshaled the architecture and contracting services on the project—led to a major expansion of the home across all three floors and the basement, which now features a striking mudroom and a gym. “We removed the entire back wall of the house and extended the kitchen by about 12 feet,” says Hofmann. “We then added several large windows and French doors to the kitchen space.” Hofmann’s team also incorporated custom millwork to artfully blend the addition with the existing home. That millwork includes a striking octagonal coffered ceiling that White and Webb designed. “Ceilings are always a fun way to add visual interest in an underused way,” White says. LUXE INTERIORS

Now flooded with natural light, the kitchen is dressed in cheerful hues of citron and sky blue. “It’s bright, open and very functional,” the husband says. “There’s a flow around the island, and there are a lot of places for people to sit and congregate.” And the kitchen wasn’t the only place to get a jolt of color. The living room received neutral tones, but elsewhere, the palette got dialed up. “We definitely embraced color,” the wife says. “I think it’s youthful and fresh, and it brings the whole space alive.” The dining room walls, for example, were painted a deep blue that complements the couple’s china pattern. The designers added personal touches throughout the home, from the butler’s pantry’s leaded-glass window emblazoned with a fleur-de-lis and the homeowners’ initial, to an overscale daffodil photo that White took. “We have an arboretum down the street, and they have a huge daffodil bowl,” the wife says. “That’s one of our first memories of living on this street, so it ties it all together beautifully.” L

y clients have always loved Shelter Island and its getaway atmosphere,” says interior designer Sara Story of the summer residence she recently completed for a New York-based professional

couple with two young kids. “They wanted me to create a retreat for them, a relaxing place where they could spend time with their family and friends.” For inspiration, Story did not need to look far. The coastal cedarshingle home designed by architect Joshua Brandfonbrener sits three stories tall on a bluff above the ocean. When Story first came on board, ground had not yet been broken, but the natural beauty was ever-present. “Shelter Island has these lovely bands of vegetation from coastline to water’s edge: cedar groves, sassafras trees, beach grasses,” Brandfonbrener says. “My goal was to ease the house into the topography, and make it feel private, while maximizing the scenery.”

Most rooms, including the upstairs bedrooms, have ocean views. The principal level, which encompasses the kitchen, dining and living rooms, is also connected along the exterior by a 78-foot main terrace, overlooking the sea and creating an indoor-outdoor circulation loop. “I wanted the interiors to be very neutral and for the focus to be on the spectacular scenery outside,” says Story. “I took my palette from the sky, beach, water and trees.” The flooring is of white oak, complementing the casual chic beach décor. The walls are mostly a creamy hue with minimal moldings, serving as a backdrop to clean-lined transitional furnishings.

In the serene sand-and-shell-hued living room, silk area rugs add warmth to the floors, linen curtain panels subtly frame expansive window-walls and delicate sheers filter sunlight as needed. “The living room is a large rectangular space, so I broke it up by creating two separate sitting areas,” Story says. “The immediate family uses the more casual one centered around the fireplace. The other, which is slightly more formal, works well when they host social events.” 222 L U X E I N T E R I O R S

“I wove in metal accents, too,” Story adds. “Especially in a neutral space, you can create drama and interest with metals.

Lacquered finishes are another way the décor’s quiet neutrality is countered. There is a surge of saturated color by way of the lime green chair seats and curtain panels in the dining room, as well as the peacock blue wallpaper hand painted with a botanical theme. It works perfectly for more formal dinner parties at the beach. “For casual dining, I designed a perforated leather corner banquette in the kitchen,” says

would rather be poor in a cottage full of books than a king without the desire to read,” said the 19th-century English historian Thomas Babington Macaulay. Fortunately, this was a choice the owner of this house in the Long Island hamlet of

Manhasset never had to face. While he may not have imperial lineage, he is royalty in his field—the theater—where he has produced some of the biggest hits on Broadway and London’s West End. “He’s an Anglophile and loves to read,” confirms designer Sandra Nunnerley. “So the house has lots of perches to sit with a book.” The stunning testament to her client’s avocation is an impressive library with a design appropriately informed by a famous musical. “Remember that handsome paneled library in My Fair Lady where Henry Higgins teaches Eliza Doolittle how to properly pronounce ‘the rain in Spain?’ ” asks Nunnerley. “That was our inspiration.” When he went looking for a home, says the client, “I was a single man living with three children” (all now at college). “It had to have a masculine feel, but not overly so,” he says, “and I didn’t want it to be too formal. I had lived in London for eight years and liked the English cottage sensibility.” He thought he’d found these qualities, says architect Arthur S. Pier, in a circa 1960s ranch that in the ‘80s had received a “faux Georgian brick veneer.” Though ambitious original plans called for major refacing, recalls Pier, “The owner decided he didn’t want to draw attention, so he liked the fact that what was presented on the exterior was not much,

and that the surprise was inside.” Creating that surprise, however, took two years because the team discovered “it had been poorly built and spaces were haphazardly linked.” Pier and Nunnerley brought rationality to the floor plan by creating more classical Georgian axes off a central entry stair (also redesigned) and opening the rear façade to the outdoors with French doors and patios. Kids’ rooms went upstairs, while their father’s suite remained on the ground floor, adjacent, by request, to his library, which the team made double height and paneled. “The extent of the millwork was extraordinary,” explains builder Edward Reis, who actually made and applied the veneers. “The French walnut in the library is very high-end and not available in bulk. The trees grow wildly, not straight up, so the perfect pieces are rare.”

The client and his team justified the expense because architectural detail made the house “look like it’s always been there,” says Nunnerley, who also had new fumed-oak floors laid throughout. “No polyurethane or varnish,” she adds. “It’s a bit rough and raw, which gives it this wonderful aged look.” Pier adds, “All the moldings and trim bring a consistency to the house that it originally lacked.” Nunnerley’s take on English cottage style is “cleaner and clearer, but with the same sense of history and ease,” she says. So she appointed interiors with an uncluttered mix of antiques and comfy upholstered custom seating—a roomy flannel sofa in the living room next to a

DAVID DALTON

GOLDEN TOUCH

A LAID-BACK CALIFORNIA DESIGNER GIVES A LESSON ON DECORATING WITH A VIBRANT YELLOW PALETTE IN MIND. HINT: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE NEUTRAL PAIRINGS.

PERFECT PAIR In the courtyard of this California town home, designer David Dalton echoed the sunny palette of the interior to tie

COLOR THEORY

“My favorite hue of yellow is

the Imperial yellow from the Ancient Chinese court, which is frequently paired with other spicy colors and is used in generous quantities with black.”

“I believe that color is a

great tool and is probably the thing that most affects the way we feel about the spaces we live in. I’m not afraid of color and like to use it in strong, clear doses.”

Pairing yellow with neutrals, a limited edition art print adheres to Dalton’s advice. Feather Monoprint: Yellow, $750; naturalcuriosities.com

“Yellow is best suited for somebody unafraid of color. However, I think that subconsciously, we all respond well to the hopefulness of yellow.”

A travertine top joins a geometric base to create one distinctive table design. Oscar dining table, $12,750; eggcollective.com

“The most unusual color I’ve ever tried in a design project is black. For some reason, most people in America have an aversion to ample amounts of black.”

PROVING THAT A GORGEOUS GREEN WORKS WITH ANY AESTHETIC, THIS DESIGN DUO SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON SHADES FROM AVOCADO TO OLIVE.

COLOR TRAITS When Katie Schroder and Erika Rundiks of Atelier Interior Design were challenged with infusing color and glamour into a traditional home, they accepted with gusto. The homeowner attributed her love of color to a childhood spent in India and was looking for a way to liven up her study. To do so, Schroder and Rundiks used a fabric shade and lacquered kelly green shelving unit to pop against neutral furnishings and graphic wallpaper. “That particular green works

well with any style,” explain the designers. “The regalness of the color accentuates traditional design elements, but it can also serve as the added zip in a modern space.”

“Different shades of green make all the difference.

it’s important not to overpower the space. Make sure to temper this bold hue with neutrals. It also works well with small doses of yellow and orange tones.”
