His innovative design prowess has been touted across the globe with clientele ranging from next-door neighbors to A-list celebrities.

+ A TASTEFUL PALETTE Start a room makeover with a clear vision of the color palette.

BIGHO BUILDING ON PERFECTION In cutting-edge fashion, BIGHORN is building an innovative, sophisticated clubhouse, which includes four luxury penthouses. Groundbreaking ideas are common at BIGHORN. They have been foundational elements since its 1996 purchase by chairman R.D. Hubbard and 20 forward-thinking members. BIGHORN is a leading community recognized the world over for a visionary commitment to progress and excellence. For two decades, Hubbard’s outside-the-box perspectives have shaped a lifestyle and future enjoyed by members and envied by others. In its 20th season, the “innovation club” boldly presses its advantage with plans for a new clubhouse that’s unlike any other.

With four 5,000-7,500-square-foot luxury penthouses designed by the world-renowned Guy Dreier, BIGHORN has merged privacy, stunning views and the ultimate in concierge lifestyle. Designed by the award-winning architectural firm Swaback Partners, the contemporary aesthetic of the clubhouse employs a breathtaking use of space and light to blend timeless style with new, state-of-the-art amenities. The Pour House, known for its hip vibe and relaxed atmosphere, features expansive views and will take center stage for indooroutdoor dining. The new men’s and women’s locker rooms set on either side of the restaurant will enjoy the natural light and offer full-service restaurants within. Indoor and outdoor banquet facilities will service the club’s 100-plus special events throughout the year, while the glass-enclosed


HORN golf boutique will infuse Madison Avenue chic with the service and quality merchandise that has earned it a place as one of America’s Top 100 Golf Shops by Golfweek for 13 consecutive years. “BIGHORN’s clubhouse won’t be like anywhere else, because their membership is unlike anywhere else,” says Swaback’s John Sather, AIA, AICP. “BIGHORN’s successful membership is open to bold, new ideas while at the same time promoting the downtime and casual feeling that comes with enjoying a vacation retreat. It is a new gathering place that blurs the lines of art and architecture, becoming one with great friends, food and wine and celebrating life together. What could be better than that?”

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!

memo SHANNON RATCLIFFE PUBLISHER

Happy New Year from Luxe Interiors + Design! We hope you enjoy this special Gold List issue, featuring some of the very best in luxury design from both Orange County and San Diego. Luxe was honored to close out 2016 with some tremendous partnerships in the design industry. On November 8, Milgard sponsored a networking event at ChocXO in Irvine. Next, we hosted Design in the Desert, a beautiful event featuring exquisite architecture and design by Bradshaw Construction, G-Force Design and Kristi Hanson Architects, where around 200 guests explored the Gray family’s 20,000-square-foot home and enjoyed light bites and music. Also, furthering our commitment to give back to the community, Luxe helped raise muchneeded funds for Rady Children’s Hospital though a very successful auction of decorated holiday trees. Finally, to end the holiday season, a festive party was held at Famosa in Costa Mesa. We thank you for allowing us to be part of the design industry that so enriches and enhances our lives. With reflections on the past and hope for a beautiful tomorrow, we wish you an inspired prosperous and productive new year.

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.

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.

LUXE RECOGNIZES THE DESIGNERS TO WATCH IN THE NEW YEAR, IDENTIFYING SOME OF THE BEST OF THE BEST ACROSS CITIES BRIMMING WITH EMERGING DESIGN TALENT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH


PHOTO: MANUEL RODRIGUEZ.

Blending classic silhouettes in neutral tones with accessories and art that bring us back to our cultural roots, this Alexander M. Reid-designed space redefines luxury with the innovative style that characterizes the up-andcoming batch of designers currently on our radar.


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.”

▼ MEREDITH ELLIS

Austin | meredithellisdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Meredith Ellis’ aesthetic is informed by the greats she worked for earlier in her career: Bunny Williams, Thomas Beeton and Michael S. Smith. James–her home décor showroom housed in a tiny Texas bungalow–has a cult following, further cementing her authority in ATX’s rapidly growing design community. 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. IN HER WORDS: “I’m not afraid of tradition and the classical elements that have been around forever because I know how to incorporate them into today’s lifestyle. My goal is to give my clients’ homes a soul that becomes a part of them.”

 MAX HUMPHREY

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Max Humphrey’s designs are pure Americana with a whole lot of edge (think Rosie the Riveter meets punk rock). His non-linear background as a musician and film and television producer influences his crafty style and eye for the extraordinary. ON THE HORIZON: Humphrey is currently designing his first restaurant, The Cutlery, and two retail spaces for City Home, a funky home goods store. His first line of custom fabrics will launch one by one in January and will be made in the states and sold exclusively on his website.

MAGGIE CRUZ ▲

Miami | maggiecruzdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: It’s easy to spot a Maggie Cruz home when you walk in the door. Cruz raises the bar for Miami design with an unmistakable polish and burst of color. Incorporating bold art into her rooms, she brings to life the flair and exuberance of the city. ON THE HORIZON: Though she’s always designed bespoke pieces for clients, Cruz is launching her first collection of stand-alone pieces available for purchase this spring. Maggie Cruz Home Collection represents her ode to Miami, inspired by her Cuban heritage. IN HER WORDS: “I’m drawn to the vibrancy and energy of Miami and to the texture and history of Cuba. My design style is grounded in tradition and balanced with modern sensibilities.”

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.”

 WESLEY MOON

New York | wesleymoon.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Wesley Moon’s bold aesthetic and unrestrained use of wild patterns and statement-making pieces attract the most fashionable clientele. ON THE HORIZON: T. Camille Martin of TCM Studio and Aaron McIntire from Gunn Landscape Architecture are aiding Moon with the customization of a West Village triplex penthouse, created from two adjoining town houses. IN HIS WORDS: “I don’t like rooms that feel ‘decorated.’ I prefer a curated collection of beautiful furniture and objects that make it seem like the room has been evolving for years, and will continue to do so.”

STEPHANIE HAUPTLI

Los Angeles | hauptlihaus.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Stephanie Hauptli’s European background informs her multidisciplinary design work, where she blends functionality with beauty in ethereal, contemporary spaces. ON THE HORIZON: Hauptli is working on an NYC loft, an L.A. yoga studio and a restoration project with her husband, architect Andrew Obermeyer.

COLIN GRIFFITH ‡

IN HER WORDS: “My interiors feature a strong contrast: This could be as simple as an icy gray fabric paired with an otherwise warm palette.”

Denver | griffithid.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: Colin Griffith’s designs have the ease and coziness of classic Colorado design, without being over-designed. They feel lived-in and nostalgic, as if they’ve been family homes for decades. His trick is a curated use of comfortable, classic elements remastered in luxurious materials. ON THE HORIZON: Griffith will be traveling to Europe, South America and Asia for design inspiration this year with the hope of building his network of craftsmen and specialists. IN HIS WORDS: “I love seeing and hearing my clients talk about their projects with an increased awareness of space, function and how they want to live within the home.”

 LAURA KEHOE

WHY WE LOVE HER: Laura Kehoe pulls inspiration from everywhere: blasting music in her studio while leafing through books and looking at images from her travels. Her style is true to both her California roots and to her firm’s home base in Arizona; she works with the environment, uses natural materials, color and light, and adds a touch of bohemian ease.

 KATIE STOREY

San Francisco | storeydesign.co WHY WE LOVE HER: Focusing on an individualized approach, Katie Storey aims to create spaces that serve as extensions of her clients’ personalities. From renovating classic Victorian town houses to designing modern homes, Storey adapts to her clients’ styles to make them feel at home. ON THE HORIZON: Storey is launching her first line of signature textiles and home goods to complement her crisp, refined design style. IN HER WORDS: “We aren’t designing for Spring 2017. We’re designing for your life, because we know spaces that function better feel better.”

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.”

JESSE DESANTI

San Clemente, CA | jettecreative.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Jesse DeSanti uses simple materials in homes that are sustainable, airy and delicate. ON THE HORIZON: DeSanti is helping to restore and revamp a 45-year-old restaurant in a small beach town, celebrating its history and seaside surroundings.

Each home has its own identity, but each represents my refined, eclectic style that pulls together modern, midcentury, Spanish, bohemian and traditional influences.”

 MICHELLE MORGAN HARRISON New Canaan, CT | morganharrisonhome.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Whether it’s a masculine library or a feminine parlor room, Michelle Morgan Harrison uses her background in fashion to infuse her designs with sophistication. ON THE HORIZON: Harrison is collaborating with James Schettino Architects on a large build project that will feature her ultramodern design. IN HER WORDS: “Each project varies in style from modern, to transitional and traditional, but my overall style is clean, with streamlined silhouettes and pops of color.”

BRANT MCFARLAIN ƒ

Dallas | rbrantdesign.com

WHY WE LOVE HIM: If the Dallas homes he designs are any indication, Brant McFarlain likes to think bold. His background as a finearts scholar informs his projects, which often rely on edgy statement pieces and luxurious materials to craft polished interiors. ON THE HORIZON: McFarlain is shifting his focus to an upcoming commercial venture, bringing a fresh, luxury approach to this new space. IN HIS WORDS: “When I design a space, I consider everything from architecture to furnishings to create a harmonious aesthetic. I also blend different styles and cultural influences to add interesting layers and depth to a space—so it doesn’t have just one look.”

▲ AMY MUNGER AND

ELIZABETH MUNGER STIVER

Houston | mungerinteriors.com

WHY WE LOVE THEM: The Munger sisters update classic pieces with fresh, current materials and use their expertise in art consulting to create homes that balance luxury with livability. ON THE HORIZON: They are working on a project with Michael G. Imber, Architects and a Flemish-inspired home with Miller Dahlstrand De Jean Architects. IN THEIR WORDS: “We feel that art can make or break a room, and would rather a client buy one great piece of art than several uninspired pieces.”

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

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.”

WHO: Artist Fernando Mastrangelo casts sculptural objects out of unexpected materials such as salt, sugar, coffee and corn. He recently exhibited seven pieces from his new Drift series—his first collection cast with sand— at The New gallery in Los Angeles. WHAT: Expect to see images from Mastrangelo’s most recent works, including a new series for MMaterial, his sculptural furniture line, called Ghost. His feed mirrors his design aesthetic: sculptural and minimalistic.

6AM

A new mixed-use development is coming to the corner of 6th and Alameda streets, furthering the boom of downtown Los Angeles. The aptly named project, 6AM, from Irvine-based real estate developer SunCal, will anchor 14.5 acres on the southeast corner of the Arts District and will bring a host of essentials to the area. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning firm Herzog & de Meuron, the property—still in its conceptual phase—will offer livework residences and offices geared toward the artistic community. The development will feature two hotels, exhibition space, pools and a fitness center, plus retail shops including a grocery store and a European-style food hall. The site also includes green spaces, a river walk and plenty of underground parking (more than 3,400 spaces). The building will run on alternative energy sources and meet LEED certification. Herzog & de Meuron’s design sits thoughtfully in the setting: Its low-lying, 40-foot base is in keeping with nearby historic buildings, while towers projecting upward reflect the L.A. skyline. suncal.com

IN HIS OWN WORDS: “When people see my work, I hope they feel a moment of escape from their everyday lives. It’s about being transported and recreating the peace and wonder of the natural world within our built environment.”

ON DISPLAY POP ART DESIGN

In early January, the Orange County Museum of Art opened “Pop Art Design,” an exhibition organized by the Vitra Museum, in collaboration with several European collections. Pop art, the most influential art movement since 1945, reflected a growing dominance of celebrity and mass media culture, and looked to elevate the most commonplace items by putting the focus on process and technique rather than content—perhaps the most iconic example is Andy Warhol’s soup cans. Fifty years on, Pop art continues to inspire discussion and study. By showing design objects with Pop art works, the show documents how early 1950s design explored consumerism even before the arrival of the movement in the 1960s. Running through early April, the exhibition includes masterworks such as George Nelson’s 1956 Marshmallow sofa and Milton Glaser’s 1966 psychedelic poster of newly minted Nobel Prize-winner Bob Dylan. ocma.net 132 / LUXESOURCE.COM

TALKING SHOP WITH

UNA MALAN

THE INSIDER STEPHEN KENN

Design must-dos in DTLA: I’m a big fan of the new Hauser Wirth & Schimmel gallery in the Arts District, as well as The Broad. Also, Hammer and Spear is a great place to shop for home goods and furniture.

convey to others what I care about. I like that we’ve moved away from ornate details and into an appreciation for modern form and function, but a good story is the new frontier in my opinion.

Favorite place to recharge: There’s an awesome little “glamping” spot along the coast that my wife and I like to visit called El Capitan Canyon. We also love spending an afternoon at Huntington Library’s botanical gardens, LACMA or the Hammer Museum.

Ones to watch: Brendan Ravenhill, Jason Koharik, Early Work, Jonathan Cross Studio, Waka Waka and Wrk-shp.

The future of design: My eyes keep gravitating to work that has an emphasis on original process, as well as good materials. How things are made really matters to me. I’m looking to invest in objects that help 134 / LUXESOURCE.COM

What clients want: Last year we developed a collection of leather with a local tannery. Each color was based on an object that I had collected while traveling. As a result, we’ve been getting a lot of requests for the material. I love furniture made with good leather—it wears so well and looks better and better with age.

When did you open? We opened our doors at 8748 Melrose Ave. in West Hollywood in March 2016. Describe the space. I think of it as an atelier. It’s nestled above a hidden courtyard, so it’s very private. It’s incredibly charming with wonderful natural light and a very relaxed energy. We showcase furniture, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers, as well as custom leatherwork from Bill Amberg Studio in London. What’s new in the shop? We have exquisite furniture and lighting designs from Dmitriy & Co., Matthew Fairbank, Robert Marinelli, Gabriel Dean, Venice M, Kalin Asenov, Hélène Aumont and Ted Boerner. We also offer the bespoke services of French American Wallpaper, which designs the paper to exactly fit your space. What makes Una Malan different? Personal attention and collaboration. There seems to be a return to the boutique experience. One doesn’t have to see every single piece in the collection as long as there is a selection to interact with to understand the finishes and the quality. unamalan.com

CURATOR LAXART

“This position is a dream deferred. I’ve always wanted to live in L.A., but I kept getting jobs in Chicago. Now, as the new director of LAXART, I have the chance to reboot an organization. There’s a lot of latitude, and I have a long wish list of programs I’d like to incorporate, such as shows with a socio-political bent and a whole range of activities. I want to formulate a more streamlined space for exhibitions that talk about now—thematic, issue-oriented exhibitions that will bring a more defined sensibility and disposition to the space. When someone hears the name of the venue, I want them to understand what it’s all about.” –HAMZA WALKER, LAXART.ORG

“Five years ago we asked the scary question, ‘What next?’‘” says designer Stephen Kenn. “I’d been curious about making furniture and my wife canceled a trip we’d been planning to invest in the first round of prototypes.” It worked, and the investment led to the creation of an innovative studio in downtown L.A. Kenn’s signature furniture collection, Inheritance, is made using recycled materials including military tents and parachutes. Recently, he collaborated with Japanese brand Colony 2139 to produce a line of nautical-inspired furnishings, and he was just tapped by Swiss brand Victorinox to design a capsule collection of convertible furniture. Now, we’re tapping Kenn for the latest on design in L.A. stephenkenn.com

DATE BOOK BEN MEDANSKY

Last July, ceramic artist Ben Medansky watched his L.A. studio go up in smoke. A transformer behind his building had fallen onto pallets, igniting them and setting fire to the structure. Once safe to enter, Medansky made a Facebook Live video to document the damage for insurance purposes. He walked through the burned-out space quipping, “A lot of things got a really nice raku firing.” Little did he know, friends were rallying behind him, establishing a GoFundMe account to help him recover. After the fire, Medansky, who has collaborated with Kelly Wearstler and Herman Miller, worked out of a friend’s studio before finding a new space last fall. “It made me pivot without having to make excuses,” he says. “Now, I want to work on a more monumental scale—public or outdoor art.” With life anything but normal these last few months, Medansky shares the makings of his “typical” day in L.A. benmedansky.com 10 a.m. Our workday starts around mid-morning. I like to make sure everyone—we’re a team of six—has time to walk their dogs or go running. We should enjoy the climate we have here and do something good for our bodies. For a morning pick-me-up, I’ll grab a coffee at Go Get Em Tiger in Los Feliz. 12:30 p.m. I like to get lunch at Grand Central Market in downtown. I’ve been going to Sticky Rice for years. My favorite dish there is the barbecue chicken. I also like Salazar in Frogtown for Mexican food. 2 p.m. In the afternoon, I’ll spend time in the studio sketching, or our team will meet up again to discuss current projects. Recently, we’ve been working on a book about my work that we’ll self-publish. The goal is to sell it on my website, and hopefully at the galleries that also carry my work. 136 / LUXESOURCE.COM

4 p.m. We like to center our days, so we do an afternoon meditation session. It helps give us energy. I love the saying, “Center your day before you center your clay.” When I need a break from the studio, I’ll stop by a gallery like Ochi Projects or Siglo Moderno for inspiration. 5:45 p.m. The last few minutes of the workday, we do what we call “delta plus.” Delta is the mathematical symbol for change, so we talk about something we could work on. The plus is a good thing, so then we say something positive. 6 p.m. After work, I’ll do yoga at home or take the dog for a hike in Griffith Park. 8 p.m. In the evening, I’ll go out to a show or a performance. I really like WIFE, the theatrical dance group. If I’m in the studio or at home all day, it’s important to get out and take advantage of everything that’s here.

RIVIERA HOLIDAY

THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY

While this iconic psychological thriller by Anthony Minghella is rife with suspense and drama, The Talented Mr. Ripleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amalfi Coast setting elicits a calming sense of serenity, one that can be replicated year-round with an earthy, neutral palette and pops of tranquil cerulean that evoke a relaxed level of chic.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

Magically traveling back in time to a period that shaped the first international architectural age of Art Deco, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris marries the present day with the vibrancy of the Jazz Age. Influenced by a combination of modernism and bold geometric forms, these interior finds prove that this sophisticated style will forever remain a tour de force.

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.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.

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.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.

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.


MARKET / SPOTLIGHT

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.”

“If you want to maximize your time at High Point, schedule yourself for one venue or area per day, and make sure to finish your day having dinner at the bar at the Proximity Hotel or Green Valley Grill.”

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

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.


KITCHEN + BATH

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 / 187


THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

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

best in

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. On the following page, design talents from across the country share some of their favorite ways to use architectural elements, such as paneling and steel-frame doors, to impressive effect in the bath. detailhomes.com

Clockwise from top right: To create a focal point and keep this master bath feeling open, Beth Keim employed a custom shower door by Tuan Hoang Le of Fe26 Design & Fabrication. In this bathroom by Kishani Perera, custom paneling painted in Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal sets a refined mood. Marble tile from Daltile, laid in a herringbone pattern, lines the walls of this Kristin Rocke-conceived bath; a pair of Avron sconces from Bourgeois Boheme Atelier complement the hand-carved Carrara marble sink.

HEARTH & HOME

Nothing coveys French Provincial charm more than a traditional kitchen fireplace, but an unexpected niche reads refreshingly contemporary in this William R. Hefner-designed kitchen that offers French Mediterranean elegance with a laidback, California twist. 1 / Simple Pleasures: Add a little extra glow to otherwise neglected alcoves with a small, wood-burning firebox. This one is neatly embedded into the wall and exudes the same crackling fireside magic without being too intrusive. 2 / Close to Heart: Take advantage of the heat by elevating your fireplace off the floor. This spot is perfectly situated to spread warmth throughout the kitchen and breakfast nook. 3 / Bare Necessities: Forgo that fussy mantelpiece and, instead, choose a flush, picture-box frame that seamlessly blends your firebox with the dĂŠcor. Only crisp white surrounds this fireplace, simply accented with a demure art piece. 4 / Pride of Place: Turn utility into creativity by displaying your logs as a decorative element. Here, a custom recess is cut just below to store spare wood in a chic wicker basket.

Gathering by the fire never looked so refined, as sleek lines and creamy hues bring a sophisticated edge to this fireplace, designed by Elizabeth Vallino for a picturesque Montecito retreat. 1 / About Face: Spread the warmth by introducing a two-sided fireplace as the centerpiece of your room. This doublefaced design creates inviting and intimate conversation spots on both sides while still retaining the room’s airy ambience thanks to its minimalist mantel and sky-gray finish. 2 / Surface Treatment: Add a little more flair to your fireplace liner with decorative tiling. These exposed subway tiles offer a pristine white accent to the space’s Zen profile. 3 / Center Stage: Opt for a wide, wraparound hearth that’s ready-made for nestling by the fire, as well as displaying choice décor objects, like this gnarled wooden vase and oversize river stone. 4 / Even Keel: Provide balance for your modernist hearth with some more organic furnishings. In this living room, the serious curve appeal of the asymmetrical coffee table by Oggetti pairs nicely with the streamlined fireplace.

NEW ROMANTICS

THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Sara Story

200 / LUXESOURCE.COM

A grand fireplace gets a mod revamp in the hands of designer Sara Story, transforming the majestic living room of the historic Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills with playful takes on color and silhouette. 1 / Period Piece: Go bold with your mantelpiece by layering statement artworks over each other for an eclectic finish. This vignette embraces both the past and present, pairing a traditional oil painting with an Abstract Expressionist classic by Louise Fishman. 2 / New Gloss: Preserve the aged patina of your mantel, and instead revive the surrounding walls with an invigorating hue. This pale green by Farrow & Ball creates a clean palette to showcase the fireplace’s intricate artistry. 3 / Grand Scale: Contrast your fireplace’s baroque ornamentation with avant-garde furnishings. These pastel ceramic stools by Hun-Chung Lee make lovely objets d’art as well as an ideal perch by the fire. 4 / Artful Balance: Create a visual counterpoint to your formal fireplace with something equally striking. The Peter Lane sideboard just opposite of the hearth adds textural drama with blue ceramic relief panels and feels extra special when paired with a vivid Ron Gorchov painting.

LUXE LOOKS AT THE KITCHEN TRENDS SURE TO COOK UP EXCITEMENT IN 2017.

WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

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.


THE LOOK / THE REPORT

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

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

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

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

TOTAL transparency Just as the right accessories elevate an ensemble, beautifully crafted knobs and pulls add polish and interest to your cabinetry. 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

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

Ask the Expert Dean Meredith Owner and Principal

What are the key influences in your work today? The client’s program and how they envision their residence. Secondly, the site’s topography, views and landscape and, of course, the budget.

1125 Camino Del Mar, Suite A Del Mar, California 858.755.5591 wdeanmeredith@gmail.com deanmereditharchitecture.com

DEAN MEREDITH ARCHITECTURE

At the age of eight, having recently lost his father, Dean Meredith began taking art classes and proved to have a natural gift for design. The endeavor would prove the catalyst behind a life of creating. When Meredith enrolled in architecture as an elective in high school, he knew he had found his passion and purpose. Speaking to the way his history informs his daily pursuits, the owner and principal of Dean Meredith Architecture says, “It is my intention to create architecture as an art form, blending structure and landscape to produce not only a sculpture that respects and incorporates the natural surroundings, but is an environment of fluidity, openness and light.” Although proficient in executing the nuances of an array of established styles, Meredith believes in focusing on customization. “Stylistic preferences can be interpreted by an architect in myriad ways,” he says. “I recommend clients compile images and inspirations. I do not copy, so pictures are the starting point, and in the end, all aspects of the design become a comprehensive whole resulting in a stunning, bespoke structure.” Still, Meredith points to a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired, contemporary aesthetic as a favorite, in part because of its penchant for inspiring the qualities he identifies as inherent to designing great architecture. “It requires a clever imagination, an understanding of proportions and an intuitive sense of design.”

02

What is your favorite part of the creative process? Sketching. I draw every design by hand from an instinctive vision. It feels almost magical to me. I sketch, and suddenly, the design comes to life. Describe the philosophy behind your firm. The firm's focus is on architecture as an art form, blending each uniquely designed structure seamlessly, like a tapestry, into the land form while in complete harmony with nature and the environment.

01. In the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright, this award-winning home features stepped, overlapping horizontal overhangs anchored by two-story ledger stone walls and planters. 02. Dramatic curved ceiling soffits echo the exterior's winglike, curved roof forms (see photo 03). 03. Following the curved shape of the lot, this contemporary home, with roof overhangs shaped as wings, was inspired by a hang glider perched on a coastal bluff. 04. Inspired by architects Charles and Henry Greene, this Craftsmanstyle home stays true to its design roots, incorporating all the true Craftsman features. 05. Positioned on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean, this contemporary home integrates a bold, curved form as a nod to an ocean wave, while maximizing panoramic views.

CUSTOM WOODWORKING

Ask the Expert Dan Luna Owner 23400 Peralta, Suite 1 Laguna Hills, California 949.859.3631 dan@danlunawoodworking.com danlunawoodworking.com

DAN LUNA WOODWORKING

In a craft such as woodworking, you cannot simply be skilled with your hands and precise with measurement taking—you must love what you do to create extraordinary work. Dan Luna, owner of his namesake firm Dan Luna Woodworking, exemplifies this philosophy. “As a kid, I worked with my dad in his upholstery shop. Although I was learning upholstery, I was always creating little wood projects. I feel that is what inspired me to take woodshop in high school, and that is when my true obsession started,” Luna shares. “I ate it. I breathed it. I would lay awake at night thinking about what I would create next. From that time until now, my passion has not stopped.” Luna’s love for the trade can be seen in his firm’s body of work, accumulated during its 25 years in business thus far. Providing superior craftsmanship through a process that facilitates the ultimate in customization, Luna and his team meet and exceed expectations as part of their daily routine. “I’m focused on creativity and quality throughout the process,” Luna says. “But the most important thing, at the end of the day, is that the client is 100-percent satisfied.” With projects throughout Southern California, from Newport Beach to San Juan Capistrano and the famously affluent Coto de Caza, the firm has an extraordinary breadth of services and specialties, including staircases, kitchens and baths, theaters and antique reproductions, to name a few. “I take each project, big or small, and treat it as if it were one of my children,” Luna says. “From the conception of a design through nurturing and watching it grow into something spectacular, it is very satisfying and inspiring.”

01

02

What is inspiring you now? For several years, I have tuned into nature and music. It puts me in a place of playful imagination, somehow freeing my mind to create things out of the ordinary. What is your creative process? I sit down at my drawing table and think about a meeting with the clients, designers, architects and builders. As I look through notes and inspirational images, my mind starts processing the information, and my pencil goes to paper. What are you working on next? I am working on a line of furniture. It’s on a small scale, but very high-end and caters to our clientele. It’s something that I love to do.

INTERIOR DESIGN SHOWROOMS

LE DIMORA

When neighbors and friends Maria Barry and Cindy Cerenzie recognized their shared passion for the home, Le Dimora was born. What started as a 1,500-square-foot showroom has grown to encompass more than 12,000 square feet of state-of-the-art space. Offering full interior design services and home furnishings to accommodate nearly every need, Le Dimora has become a destination for residents throughout Southern California and beyond. Barry, a longtime interior designer, and Cerenzie, who has a background in engineering and business, successfully run a multifaceted company by complementing each other’s considerable skill sets. “The focus and culture at Le Dimora is unique,” Barry says. “Our reputation for courteous service and our laid-back approach has set us apart from others. We have nine extremely talented and experienced designers in our employ, and each one has an area of expertise.” Serving a variety of clients seeking to bring an array of aesthetics to life, the Le Dimora team strives to convey customization in all it does. Of the firm’s philosophy when it comes to collaboration with the client, Cerenzie says, “We aim to inspire them to try change and blend multiple styles to create a unique look.”

Maria Barry, Principal Cindy Cerenzie, Principal 13470 Highlands Place San Diego, California 858.261.0600 ledimora@ledimora.com ledimora.com

Luxury is the highest level of quality.

Ask the Expert What are your favorite styles to work on and why? Barry: We love to blend styles together. My new personal favorite is the blend of modern and rustic. I would like to build and own a modern barn-style home. What are you working on next? We are concentrating on making our showroom a success and focusing on the product development of our own private brand. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Not anymore. The opening of our new showroom was an opportunity to reinvent ourselves. We are changing with the needs of our clients.

Ask the Expert What is your creative process? I always start by finding a fabulous rug! It grounds the space and sets the tone for the room.

Leanne Michael Principal San Diego, California 858.761.6287 lmluxelifestyle@gmail.com leannemichael.com

What would be your dream creative project? My dream creative project would be to preserve a colony of historic buildings and renovate them into a luxury lifestyle residential community.

L U X E LIFESTYLE DESIGN

From owning a furnishings and floral design boutique in Rancho Santa Fe to beginning a design career in Santa Barbara to opening a full-service interior design, garden design, entertaining and holiday decorating firm—L U X E Lifestyle Design—in San Diego, Leanne Michael has proven a true Californian and a versatile, experienced design professional. A stickler for authentic spaces, Michael has what she calls, “the curse and blessing of a detailed eye.” Noting an appreciation for authenticity as key to her selection and design process, she values projects with history and the use of genuine materials, from collections of tile to the natural patina of aged woods to an array of artisanal textiles. “No fake wood beams, substitutes or anything painted to mimic something it isn’t on my watch,” she says. “I prefer accepting design projects that respectfully declare homage to preserving the integrity of the home’s architectural roots, whether Spanish, Moroccan, Italian, French or California coastal. This allows me to create custom features with historical influences in mind, all while providing modern amenities to meet the needs of today’s busy families.” Striving to produce spaces that combat the often-hectic lives of their inhabitants, Michael imbues her designs with a feeling of warmth, seclusion and romance. She adds, “Anyone can design a pretty room. I create spaces in which you will want to linger; spaces you want to get to know.”

02

How do you define luxury? I believe luxury is what we make of it; with what allows each of us, individually, to carve out an area in our home or garden that fills our soul with comfort.

Handpainted Fortuny-inspired wall art was made to resemble fine linen. A wood Spanish dining table and leather chairs are complemented by a fresh European floral arrangement and a table setting by Michael. 03. This space features a chocolate bouclé sectional with custom pillows; an original painting of Catalina Island by artist Karen Wilkinson; and a handcarved wood mirror from Mexico. 04. Spanish white walls in a matte finish and a custom faux finish on the fireplace mantel lend elegance to this room, which also features a plein air oil painting of Montecito by artist Jordan Pope.

Jennifer Mehditash began her design career in Lisbon, Portugal, where she created both high-end residential masterpieces and five-star luxury hotels and spas. In 2008, she moved to New York, establishing her firm, Mehditash Design, in one of the most competitive and desirable design markets in the world. Today, she lives in Newport Beach and lends her considerable talents to homeowners and professionals from coast to coast. “Having spent much of my career in Europe and, more recently, on the East Coast, I have found there is a tendency to mix patterns and colors in unexpected ways and without trepidation,” she says. “I enjoy creating moments of happiness and feel my time at Sotheby’s also afforded me an ability to balance modern and traditional pieces.” Mehditash goes on to describe her philosophy as one focused on customization, saying she allows each design to be unique, devoid of trends and centered on the homeowners. “I aim to remain a small boutique firm so I can continue to be involved in the process and have direct relationships with my clients,” she says. “I hope my designs are genuine reflections of their desires and tastes rather than representations of my aesthetic.” Of her most recent inspirations, Mehditash points to warm wood tones mixed with color and patterns, as well as comfortable textures and strong pieces of art. “I love that we are starting to see more variety in design,” she says. She adds that variability is also the key to a constant challenge, for which Mehditash strives. “When each project is in a different style and location, it keeps me on my ‘designer’ toes,” she says.

Terra Bella Landscape Development has been creating masterful works of landscape architecture and construction for the past 12 years. With president Jason Jarvis at the helm, the firm has become the leader in Southern California for high-end design-build services, catering to the top home builders, architects and interior designers in addition to the region’s luxury homeowners. Spawned out of a passion for aesthetics in natural beauty, Terra Bella uses creative design to enhance the everyday lives of its clients. In achieving this goal, the firm focuses on the nuances of luxurious living and how they translate to landscapes. “Luxury is time,” Jarvis says. “Spending time in surroundings and environments that make you feel good—that’s luxury. This is what we strive to give our clients every time we create an outdoor oasis.” Given its clientele, which includes professional athletes, music industry professionals and CEOs, it is no surprise that an understanding of high-end living plays a role in the firm’s process. Inspired by ranch, desert and coastal living, Jarvis strives to discover objects of nature that one wouldn’t expect to find in a residential landscape. He points to an unexpectedly versatile plant as being one of his favorite and constant inspirations. “I am obsessed with succulents and have been for the last 10 years,” Jarvis says. “I collect them and love to show clients how diverse their coloring can be.” Known for his execution of construction, Jarvis’ mantra to his artisan crew is, “We are only as good as our last job, so focus on the details.” This attention to detail enables Jarvis and his team to achieve the vision of every homeowner.

What do you regard as the greatest success in your career to date? Our relationships with our clients. We sometimes do two or three homes for the same individuals, and we become family. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Although our work has a common visual thread, each project we do has an element of surprise and expresses the distinct essence of the clients.

INTIMATE LIVING INTERIORS

After spending six years perfecting her craft in the model home and residential interior design industries, Kari Arendsen launched her own firm, Intimate Living Interiors. Today, it is an awardwinning national company with a team of six creating beautiful interiors from the ground up. From evaluation, schematic design and development to procurement and installation, Arendsen enjoys every step of the design process. When speaking of the philosophy behind her firm, Arendsen touches on the importance she believes our surroundings play in daily life. “The spaces we live in have a profound effect on our well-being,” she says. “Colors, textures and materials are just some of the tangible elements that impact how we feel in our daily lives. But creating a truly inspiring environment goes beyond look and feel. It is essential to know how energy flows through every room and how light interacts with every surface.” Through collaboration with her team, Arendsen distills individual preferences, translates personal styles and incorporates worldly fascinations to help each client realize the dream of living in a home that brings them joy and an inspired quality of life. “Our primary goal is to create a space that is distinctive to the client,” Arendsen says. “We leave them with an interior of which they could never have conceived, with innovative function, impeccable and distinctive style, and an unwavering support to their overall well-being.”

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, print-wearing 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 Southern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading design pros for advice on how to approach color with confidence.

Do you have a signature approach to color? It all starts with the foundation of the primary materials. What colors are the stucco, stone or concrete? Is it a cool or warm palette? Where is the home sited? A home by the coast will naturally dictate different color families than one in Tahoe or the desert. Also, we listen to our clients. Will we be creating sophisticated interiors, which involve complex colors; or is it a quirky, happy home and one where we would use more clear, vibrant hues? What’s your favorite way to bring color into a room? Our work is very modern; often we ground neutral furnishings with area rugs in saturated hues. It provides an element of contrast, and you don’t have a bunch of colorful chairs and sofas all competing for attention.

How did you get the blues in this room (right) to work together? Whenever we mix slightly different hues the key is to really own it—to not fall into the trap of trying to get things to match too well. It’s more interesting in a minimal, clean space to play with subtleties of color. Here, the area rugs and the art play a large role in helping the colors work well together.

MAKING THE RAINBOW WORK

When it comes to color, there are as many takes as there are shades on a color wheel. Sometimes going big and bold with jewel tones is the answer and sometimes it’s all about going quieter with neutrals and letting the view, the art or the architecture take center stage. And, as these designers can attest, sometimes color might just come to the rescue.

Vance Burke: In Palm Springs, a vacation vibe is always in play, so here (shown) I used citrus tones to offset the desert neutrals. I am a believer that the location of the project affects the color choices. For a home in Vermont, I once painted a guest room floor fire engine red, a ceiling pale aqua, and inside the bookcases raincoat yellow. To bring the room to order, we covered everything in a crisp black-and-white ticking. When you walked into the room it was fresh and fun—but when tucked into bed—serene. Leo Parrella: Color is key to our designs, whether we make bold choices or choose an absence of it. When working on a recent oceanfront project, we intentionally refrained from using any color on the walls, instead allowing the dramatic blues of the ocean to engulf the home. Reinforcing the colors of the Pacific, we used bold vintage Japanese indigo textiles throughout. Martyn Lawrence Bullard: Color to the rescue—that’s always my mantra. When

a room is dark, I add a bold color. It immediately gives the space soul and an inner light from the depths of its tone. Clients can be scared of too much color, so I choose one primary hue and add layers of the same tonal color to make them comfortable. Once we have established that, I then add more shades that coordinate and spice up my palette. I like color on both the walls and the fabrics. Sometimes white is the perfect backdrop for a heavily patterned fabric, but often I will pull the prominent color from a fabric or rug and add that to the walls to create a harmonious color flow. Lori Gentile: My process depends on the clients’ taste and relationship to color. One of the first questions I ask is, “What are your favorite hues?” I love to look through my clients’ closet and see what shades and patterns they wear. This tells me a lot about their comfort zone. Bottom line, though, is there is no one way to work with color. There are no rules—just creative minds bringing unique possibilities to every project. LUXESOURCE.COM / 259

How did you bridge the modern/traditional divide in this kitchen (shown)? This entire house has a modern-meets-traditional philosophy. And since the kitchen is the heart of this home, we thought it was important to keep the idea consistent. We used traditional classic proportions for all the elements but freshened the details of the cabinet doors to make them crisper and more modern. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intriguing you with kitchens at the moment? We are integrating kitchens more into the architecture of the home as the room becomes more open to the rest of the house. We also like to put a window behind the cooktop. People always put a window at the sink, but a window where you are cooking is pretty great. Describe your approach to kitchen design in general. People tend to live in the kitchen, and the experience of preparing meals is central to a lot of families. Recently, we created a kitchen with a special area for baking with the kids. Design is about supporting these experiences. Are there any materials you are using more these days?

KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL

In the kitchen, aka the hardest-working room in the house, design pros will tell you some things are a given—generous work spaces, lots of light and sturdy, durable tools. But, they’ll also point out that it’s a great place to play and experiment with new ideas, or use tried-and-true options in surprising ways. There’s always something new under the sun, and the room makes for plenty of opportunities to express creative visions. Paul Williger: Some clients are really into cooking and want an almost commercialgrade kitchen. For others, it’s more about the kitchen’s look and feel, about a beautiful room to be in while you are getting a cup of coffee. Kitchens now can look like another furnished room in the house, which adds a lot of style and charm. I designed a kitchen once where we made all the cabinets out of antique pine furniture. It felt like a furnished room with a table as the island. In all the projects, everyone’s objective is beauty, which you can’t lose sight of while trying to accommodate more practical needs. More traditional kitchens don’t need to lack fun or inspiration. I tell clients, let’s not do the same kitchen you see every time you open a magazine. Let’s look for opportunities to make your kitchen unique and personal to you. Laurie B. Haefele: I go to EuroCucina every other April in Milan to see what

is coming down the pike as far as cabinetry and finishes go. At the moment, everything is motorized in order to cover up appliances and plumbing fixtures: pop-up appliance garages in countertops, large motorized sliding doors to hide wall ovens and telescoping faucets with sliding countertops to cover the sinks and create a monolithic block when closed. Sliding countertops allow for knee space when they are in their open position while pivoting countertops allow people to sit either across from each other or side by side at islands. Dan Luna: Access to the Internet has become essential in kitchens. Internet access, USB ports and charging stations must be designed the way utility drawers used to be designed. Plus, lighting is very diverse now. LED lights placed in subtle ways enhance the design of the kitchen while also providing essential counter lighting.

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.

Was there a particular reason you used koa wood for this space (above)? FG: For this project, we lucked out on the koa, as it is hard to find, but a large koa tree was knocked down in a windstorm on the island of Hawaii and was then licensed to be removed and cut into veneer. Normally, koa trees cannot be cut down, so it is rare and almost impossible to get. How did the lighting and materials interact? LW: We used lighting throughout the house to create mood, depth

and drama. There is backlit stone in the steam room and in the powder room, with accent lighting behind the closet doors and many other places, where it’s strong enough to create an ambient glow without any of the overhead lights being on. What other materials did you incorporate? FG: There is an electrified glass that was used in the house to create privacy at the touch of a switch, and we used a granite that had an unusual occlusion of white quartz and burnt orange tourmaline

for the backlit walls in the steam room and powder room’s backlit walls. Are there any other notable materials you are seeing lately? LW: The porcelain tile industry is very exciting and sustainable. We are using a lot of large-format tiles for all the exterior surfaces where we might have used natural materials in the past. Window systems and structural glass sliding doors are also exciting as the frames are getting smaller, which increases the connection of the interior with the exterior.

Taking to heart their client’s directive to create a rare and extraordinary La Jolla residence, architectural designer Fred Gemmell and architect Lauren Williams made dramatic material choices throughout.

Before the building process began on an Orange County house overlooking the ocean, architect Carlton Graham took a walk on the beach on the hunt for inspiration.

MATERIAL WORLD

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a golden age for materials. The old standbys have become lighter, stronger and more durable. Talented professionals are using them in new and surprising ways, rethinking just where and how to incorporate them. At the same time, technological advances are creating some mind-blowing, never-before-seen options, so it seems like the only real limits are of the imagination. See-through concrete, anyone? Carlton Graham: Titanium is a luxury material for roofs and wall cladding. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a standout on any project, especially those by the beach with highly corrosive environments. Titanium has a duller surface than stainless steel, and it also has a very high strength-to-weight ratio. When it comes to building along the ocean, materials that will endure time and the elements are so important. Chris Ferqueron: Framing materials have changed drastically over the years to improve occupant safety in terms of wind load and seismic loads. There are thousands of structural connectors, and new materials that are lighter, stronger and less expensive. There are a lot of homes now, too, using large, slim-line windows and doors that minimize the frame and maximize views. Josiah Lilly: I just came back from two weeks in Europe attending tradeshows and visiting factories and the strongest

trend is definitely the large-format porcelain materials. You can now get 10-by-5-feet tiles that are only a Âź-inch thick, which greatly reduces the cost for cladding buildings compared to traditional methods of installing heavy stone. Years ago, porcelain tile was thought off as a cheap substitute for real stone. With the improvement of the technology, porcelain is now being used as a viable option. The better porcelains being produced look very close to real marble or limestone and maintenance is almost nonexistent. Derek Pritchett: The most exciting thing about sustainable materials these days is the creativity they spawn. The use of materials that may not have been intended for an application is not uncommon. Designers and consumers are taking bigger risks with the use of some reclaimed materials resulting in really amazing finishes, details and design elements.

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.

An entry sequence defined by stone, metal and wood introduces a Palm Springs home that architect James Schmidt planned as a series of rectangles intended to slowly unfold to create a sense of mystery. The long, narrow design also allows for mountain views from most of the rooms. Large eaves run around the perimeter, shading the structure from the intense desert sunlight.

To that end, he wrapped a stainlesssteel fascia around the home, which, depending on the time of day, changes its appearance. Custom Honduran mahogany doors by Westside Door & Moulding mark the entrance and are flanked by windows from Fleetwood Windows & Doors.

Above: To tie a contemporary Montecito home into its wooded surroundings, architect Ron Radziner crafted it from Santa Barbara sandstone—excavated from the home site itself—as well as cedar, glass and plaster. Its strong rectilinear volumes stand in the landscape as a piece of sculpture. Ample terraces and balconies provide for coveted indoor-outdoor California living.


An L-shape plan focused on simple rectilinear forms wraps around the pool and spa of a Malibu retreat. The nearly all-steel framing of the structure meant architect Richard Manion could place entire walls of glass on the rear faรงade in order to maximize the spectacular views of the Pacific.

The louvers deflect sun and contribute a measure of privacy while also bestowing what the architect terms an ethereal texture on the building.

How did the site influence the home’s plan? As with all of our projects, we look to find a clear diagram that sits nicely on the site. In this case, the plan is a backward L shape to create a courtyard open to the south and the west to capture the sun and the views. It also shields us and creates privacy from the neighbors to the north. What inspired your use of the panels? I had been using cement panels for a while in the traditional way—flat on the building in normal 2-by-4 panels. I wanted to skin the flat, solid, unglazed parts of the building similarly but also wanted to create an external shading system to shield the building from the sun and create privacy, all without a change in material. The solution—even though it took a while—was obvious. We came up with utilizing the panels as thin blades. Do you normally encourage clients to push the envelope? I have worked very hard to be in a place where clients come to us and ask us to think outside of the box. Thankfully, most clients that come our way do just that. The question is how far are they willing to go? Then, the bigger question is how far can I take it? We just finished a project where the entire façade was put together with industrial double-stick tape. Imagine the clients’ face when I first proposed the idea.

Inside a Cape Cod-style dwelling in Newport Beach by Christian R. Light, designer Melinda Grubbs reinforced the traditional theme, gracing the interiors with neoclassical architectural elements. For the entry, which features a charming oval window, she used overscaled paneling for the walls, a detail drawn from years of collecting images.


Fans of both the warmth of traditional design and the clean lines of contemporary design, architect William Hefner’s clients turned to him to devise a residence that encompassed both. He responded by giving them a structure composed of standing-seam-metal pitched roofs, splitface limestone and wood siding. Inside, the floor plan is open, embracing a relaxed lifestyle.

HOUSE WORK

Southern California, more than perhaps anywhere, overflows with a rich bounty of residential architecture. From modern marvels to cozy contemporary bungalows, there’s a little bit of everything. What do the best of these have in common? For these architects, it has to do in large measure with a strong sense of place and connection to their surroundings, not to mention a feeling of refuge.

William Hefner: I’m always trying to design homes that preserve as much open space as possible. I like to keep the site available for gardens, outdoor living areas and a chance to enjoy the climate and all the wonderful variety of plants that we can grow here. Nearly every project we do has a substantial exterior room, usually covered, heated and lit so that it can extend the living space out into the garden. This house (above) embodies that style and has a mix of traditional and contemporary elements. Barbara Bestor: I think the site tends to drive the big ideas—be it urban or view-centric, Venice walk streets or hillside enclaves. On the interior, even

within a family home, I like to make spaces for public life, such as a big naturally lit open kitchen and smaller nooks where you can retreat to read a book. People live differently now than they used to. As architects, we want to provide space for family activities together—enticing people to abandon their screens and devices and really connect.

Christian R. Light: The relationship with the outdoor environment, the types of clients we have, the opportunities to design unique properties and the diversity of styles—all get me excited about design in Southern California. LUXESOURCE.COM / 285

ALL ABOUT:

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. Here, we look at the innovative ways designers are using accessories and statement furniture to create a customized style that’s both relaxing and inviting for family members and guests alike.

Against a Spanish Colonial Revival backdrop, designer Mona Hajj pulled together a mix of periods and styles in the living room of a Beverly Hills house. The collection of vintage ceramics rubs shoulders with Art Deco-inspired custom chairs, a Rose Tarlow Melrose House coffee table replete with chinoiserie details, Khotan and Sultanabad rugs, and an A. Rudin sofa with a contemporary profile.

LIVING OUT LOUD

Gone are the living spaces of the past that firmly said look but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch. A new generation wants them to be more than just easy on the eyes. While rooms still have to look beautiful, designers are placing the emphasis squarely on comfort and functionality, so they work as both cozy spots for families to gather and gracious places for entertaining. And, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re throwing in a few surprises, too.

Kristin Nugent: Reflecting the personalities and lifestyles of my clients is always multidimensional. My objective is to create a warm and inviting home with the proper space planning to transition into a wonderful flow giving way to large groups, special events or intimate dinners. My goal is to design in a way that exceeds their expectations of what they could have ever imagined their home could become. Amy Meier: The magic happens between the pieces. What I mean is that it is not necessarily about each individual piece, but more about the entire collection and how the individuals interact with each other and contribute to the overall composition. Therefore, it is important to think holistically about how each piece in the room will fill its space and add to the whole. It is like putting together a puzzle, but instead of trying to create a tangible, visual image, I am trying to create something more abstract, a mood or an emotion, that one feels when they enter the space.

Wendy Blackband: Sparking a certain mood or atmosphere in a home is always interesting and really depends on the client and their personality. Artwork can reveal a lot about the homeowner and the vibe of their space. Younger clients with an eye for art may have more modern pieces that give off a hip feel, while older clients may favor the more traditional end of the spectrum. Rugs can also play a key role in setting the tone for a space; we use a lot of natural fibers and jute rugs in our designs that give you more of a coastal, informal vibe. Color and texture play a very important part in our design. Kathryn M. Ireland: Color and textiles help set the mood but most important are the lighting and furnishings. I think about lighting right from the start. All the lights have to be on dimmers. And every room needs a great piece of furniture and a great piece of artwork. You should also make sure you have enough seating and that the room can hold a group without being squashed. LUXESOURCE.COM / 289

Right: For clients eager to feel as if they were on a perpetual vacation, designer Ohara Davies-Gaetano decided on an “island contemporary” concept for their Laguna Beach home. In practice, it meant comfortable, easy furnishings, such as the custom sofa and faux-bamboo Currey & Company armchairs in the living room, and a palette of understated greens, oranges and neutrals.

Above: “The view commands all the attention, and rightfully so,” designer Michael Fullen says of a Laguna Beach house. To keep the focus directed outward, the warm neutrals reflect the oceanfront locale rather than compete with the landscape, while the clean-lined furniture choices, including the armchairs, coffee table and sofa from Holly Hunt, make a peaceful statement.


Joining the sculptural Ron Arad coffee table in the living room of a Pacific Palisades house—with interiors crafted by designer Annette English—is a vintage green ceramic lamp and a dramatic Ironies light fixture from Kneedler-Fauchère. They give visual weight to the space, keeping the generous volume of the room from becoming too overwhelming.

Designer Estee Stanley’s endgame for the living room of a Beverly Hills home was a cloud-like experience that also yielded top-notch function. A Chesterfield sofa and linen wing chairs have billowy silhouettes; the sheers are gossamer-light; and the globe pendants—actual Art Deco relics from New York City’s Grand Central Terminal—are heavenly bodies in their own right. Multiple seating areas ensure ideal conditions for entertaining.

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 luxw 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. And the key to creating a successful living space? A really comfortable couch! LUXESOURCE.COM / 293

Outdoor 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 designer Marcello Villano looked to desert natives to integrate a family’s renovated midcentury Palm Springs getaway into its surroundings. He hauled in 20 tons of boulders and planted brittlebush, red barrel cacti, palo verde and other desert plants. The clients, Villano says, “wanted it to be very natural looking—like it wasn’t designed.”

CARLOS ELENES This space (right) is reminiscent of France. How often do you turn to archival sources for inspiration? Travels through the south of France, and an extensive photo library from these travels, allowed us to draw from authentic images, as opposed to borrowing from publications available to all. This enabled us to give the detailing a more personal touch and helped us create a more authentic representation of the real thing. What do those sources teach us about indoor/ outdoor connections in the modern day? Climatically, the south of France is very similar to our region, and the manner in which these sources embrace the indoor/ outdoor relationship was truly inspiring. American architecture tends to be front yard, house, backyard. What we are seeing more these days are homes that create outdoor spaces within the heart of the home, which connects the home to the exterior, floods the home with light, and provides better natural ventilation within the home. 296 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Left: Encompassing some 15,000 square feet, an Irvine abode still manages to feel intimate and comfortable thanks to architect Carlos Elenes’ thoughtful design, which took advantage of the lot’s generous depth. It allowed him to devise an H-shaped plan, giving him the chance to create multiple courtyards to maximize the amount of light flooding into the interiors. Below: Interior designer Jan Turner Hering worked closely with landscape architect Erik Katzmaier to create outdoor spaces for a Newport Beach home reminiscent of the French countryside, planting olive trees, citrus and a low-maintenance herb garden. Santa Maria stone paving and an outdoor fireplace yield a stylish spot for entertaining.

“Building that large vertical wall without a roof was one of the biggest challenges we had,” builder Ryan Hill says of the open veranda of a La Jolla house designed by architect William Hayer. “We had to tie it back to the foundation to offset wind during the construction and create rigid and moment frames to help the walls flex as needed, to allow for the windows.”


Left: The vines that landscape designer Molly Wood coaxed along an iron trellis spanning the southern-facing courtyard of a Newport Beach abode provide shade but allow shafts of sunlight to peek through. The resulting space, with its secret-garden feel, serves as the centerpiece of the home and functions as an alfresco dining room, finished with Kingsley-Bate chairs and a custom light fixture. Below: Designer Timothy Corrigan graced the outdoor spaces of a classic Paul Revere Williams home in Los Angeles with the same sophistication and ease as he did inside. Corrigan furnished a fireside seating area with a cozy upholstered sofa and lounge chairs from RH that reflect the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior palette and offer similar comfort.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR DESIGNING OUTSIDE 1. Clearly define areas for different activities such as for dining, lounging or gardening. 2. Don’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.

A low hedge of Euonymus japonicus, oak and redwood trees afford an outdoor seating area a protected feel. The poured-concrete space, anchored by a fire pit, is one of several distinct outdoor destinations planned by landscape designer Brian Farrell for a renovated Beverly Hills abode. “The owners wanted to be able to make as much use of the outdoor area as possible, and they let our design minds go,” says Farrell.

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.

TAKING IT OUTSIDE

Given our spectacular climate, it’s no wonder that we like to live outside, and nowadays, it’s easier than ever to create comfortable and inviting outdoor rooms with as much personality and style as any found inside. For these designers, it’s all about hitting the right balance—creating generous spaces that bring the best bits out but still keep the focus on the natural world. 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. 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 space. Cari Berg: We have been using fully upholstered seating outside, which I love. Our upholsterer uses teak or marine wood for the frames and then outdoor

foam for the filling on the cushions. With so many unbelievable choices in outdoor fabric, there is unlimited potential to make any outdoor space comfortable and gorgeous. And, using these fully upholstered pieces helps to avoid spaces looking like they were all furnished as a “set.” Upholstered pieces can pair easily with wood or metal-framed pieces, which is much like the approach we take to an interior space. It opens up so much potential and keeps things interesting.

INSPIRATION FOUND

ANIMAL INSTINCTS WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY S. CHEVALIER

JUST LIKE A LEOPARD’S SPOTS NEVER CHANGE, NEITHER DOES THE APPEAL OF THIS TRIED-AND-TRUE CLASSIC PATTERN. WHETHER THE PRINT IS MAKING A BOLD INTERIORS STATEMENT—SIMILAR TO LATE FRENCH WRITER AND PLAYWRIGHT JEAN COCTEAU’S STUDY DECORATED BY MADELEINE CASTAING—OR GRACING TODAY’S HIGH-FASHION CATWALKS, LIKE THAT OF TOM FORD’S READY-TO-WEAR AUTUMN/WINTER 2016 LINE, THIS PRIMITIVE YET SPIRITED STAPLE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY TO REMAIN REFRESHINGLY RELEVANT WHILE INSTANTLY ADDING A LUXURIOUS TOUCH TO EVERY ENSEMBLE OR SPACE.
