 13 HOMES THAT EXUDE

SOUTHERN CHARM Deep, wraparound porches, stately columns and casual, laid-back living are all considered hallmarks of true Southern design. And with their distinct charm and character, the houses on this list will have you dreaming of lazy summer nights on the porch in true Southern style. luxesource.com/southern-charm

▲ HIGH GROUND: 14 MEMORABLE BALCONIES From a French-inspired patio in a seaside cottage to a modern terrace overlooking the cityscape (shown), these balconies provide the perfect space to either entertain or just relax solo outside with a cocktail. Here, we showcase a few of our favorite outdoor patios that will leave you wanting to spend all your time under the open sky. luxesource.com/memorable-balconies ▲ AN ITALIAN-STYLE MALIBU HOUSE WITH COASTLINE VIEWS A good story is one that takes its readers to another time or place through striking details and colorful imagery. For the narrative of this Tuscan-inspired estate, the design team began with a commanding Italianate façade featuring old-world elements and lush greenery that opens into interiors that balance authentic touches complemented by modern, tailored furnishings. See all the chapters of this story unfold at luxesource.com/italian-style-home.

EDITOR’S LETTER

WHAT’S NEW

_LX_COM12_EditorLetter.indd 84

The season of renewal (current projects! fresh ideas!) is here—and yet spring can also be a time when buds take a tad longer to bloom and concepts need coaxing to get started. We’ve all been there with the proverbial blank page staring us down. So, consider this New + Now issue to be an inspiration injection, where we update your point of view with discoveries that allow you to step outside the day-to-day and dive into something altogether new. Costas Voyatzis, the man behind yatzer.com, the global kaleidoscope of what’s happening in art, fashion and design, lets us in on the top brands to watch in 2017. We also

present the latest in side tables, report on the trend of vivid color making its way into homes across the country (Farrow & Ball Chappell Green, I have my eyes on you!), and head outdoors for a showcase of sumptuous new textiles. This spring, we also invite you online to the enhanced luxesource.com. Browse around and take a look. We’ll be tweaking things in the weeks to come, but hope you enjoy our ever-evolving digital home for design inspiration and discovery.

CONTRIBUTORS

BEHIND THE SCENES PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

LIZ ARNOLD Writer / New York Favorite Luxe interview: I really enjoyed speaking with designer Michael Siller and luxury rug specialist Larry Hokanson about their own Houston home. They are both history buffs and enthusiasts of Russian classicism, and they are incredibly knowledgeable on the intersection of history and design. They filled their interiors with reproductions of exquisite pieces selected during trips to The State Hermitage Museum in Russia, and I still have plans to show up on their doorstep one day to see it for myself! Who is the most fascinating person you’ve ever met? Eva Zeisel. She was a playful Hungarian-born industrial designer who was imprisoned by Joseph Stalin’s regime before moving her ceramics into mass production, and she had the first one-woman show at the MoMA. Sadly, she passed away in 2011 at the age of 105. Prized possessions: A coin pendant of Queen Elizabeth II—a gift from my late father—that I wear on a long necklace; a vintage French upholstered armchair in mustard yellow that’s so low you feel like you’re in a sports car; and my computer, which stores all of my writing and ideas.

EMILY MINTON REDFIELD Photographer / Denver

What do you find inspiring about design today? Having nostalgia for 1970s wallpaper, I love seeing the new designs and appreciation for this art form. I can’t wait to put an Abigail Borg paper in my powder room and make it a fresh, retro jewel box. Unforgettable Luxe shoot: One of my most memorable projects was a home designed by my visionary father, Joseph Minton. Not only were the house and location beautiful, but I was also able to do the shoot in my pajamas alongside my dad. On your coffee table: I am inspired by design books and have them all over my house, but I am mostly fueled by fiction. My recent favorites are City of Thieves by David Benioff and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Most fascinating person you’ve ever met: The Maharaja of Jaipur at a small dinner party in Delhi, India, when I was 24.

LX_COM12_Contributors.indd 98

MARK ROSKAMS Photographer / New York Whose work are you most influenced by? Photographer Raymond Meier, who does such brilliant and innovative work in the commercial advertising and editorial fields; photographer François Halard, who developed a unique style in the world of interior photography; and designer and artist Doug Meyer, a longtime friend and collaborator who gives me so much inspiration in regards to design. What type of design inspires you? I really enjoy Santiago Calatrava’s bridges, buildings and public spaces, as well as Brutalist architecture of the old regimes, which are such amazing structures in their own right. Favorite assignments: In 2010, I worked on a book with Rizzoli in Puglia, Italy, and then on a second book last year. They were both great projects, and the memories of meeting people and seeing firsthand the beauty of many things—humanity, history, architecture, life, food and passion—will last forever. I am continuing this endeavor with a new book I am planning this year on the stables and barns of the British Isles.

LAURA FISHER KAISER Writer / Washington, D.C. My biggest creative influence comes from… Viewing art. I try to go to a museum once a week. Dream assignment: I would love to have a time-machine talk show called What Were You Thinking, where I interview famous, and infamous, people from history. Most-loved book: The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World by Andrea Wulf. She rummages through the scientist’s notebooks and inside his mind to show how his ideas helped create modern environmentalism. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Think big, but master the details. Also, find a good therapist. If not a writer, I would be… A Smithsonian museum curator.

MAKING DESIGNERS AND CRAFTSMEN FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE BUILDING NEW FUTURES TOGETHER AND REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE MADE IN AMERICA. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA

The portrait of an artist as a solitary genius, toiling away and perfecting his craft in isolation, may be a romantic notion—a testament to a love of artistry so intense and allconsuming that nothing else matters—but it’s also a relic of the past. Today’s craftsmen and creatives don’t want to suffer for their art; instead, they’re using their creations to build bridges not only to the people who will ultimately invite the pieces into their homes but also to those who share their passions: fellow makers. As manufacturing in America continues to fight to thrive in the competitive global economy, the you-can’tsit-with-us mentality is giving way to communal tables, which in many cases have been built in collaboration by the people who sit around them. In places all over the country, this longing for connection is redefining what it means to be made in America, resulting in growing communities of independent designers who work side by side, collaborate regularly and sell their wares together. Here, we share some of our favorites.

NEW YORK WHAT IT IS: Located on Canal Street in New York City, Colony is equal parts showroom and gallery with carefully curated goods from independent designers—many with ties to the area and working studios in nearby Brooklyn. Founded and curated by entrepreneur Jean Lin, the design co-op also has a strategic arm, named Colony Consult, developed to help designers better position their work in the retail market. WHAT IT DOES: Colony provides a community for the furniture, lighting, textile and object designers who call it home. In addition to offering a brick-and-mortar location for members to showcase their goods, Lin also thinks outside the box with a series of exhibits and pop-ups with neighboring non-endemic businesses to drive new traffic to the space. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Industry darlings like Erickson Aesthetics, whose in-progress copper Manifold chair is featured on our Radar opener, count themselves part of Colony, as do craftsman and designer Aaron Poritz (pictured far right), whose gorgeous Abner toolbox (shown on the previous page) offers both form and function; lighting upstart Allied Maker and its Voyager 333 chandelier (shown right, top); and the woodworking wunderkinds behind Vonnegut/Kraft, who are responsible for the handsome Black Crescent lounge (right, bottom).

▲ JOIN DESIGN

SEATTLE WHAT IT IS: Founded in 2008 by the prolific minds behind some of the Pacific Northwest’s most successful creative practices—Grain, Iacoli & McAllister and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, for example—Join Design has become much more than a venture to showcase local talents and now includes more than 50 members

LX_COM12_Radar_Made_In_America.indd 104

from independent design studios all over the country. WHAT IT DOES: In addition to hosting events and exhibits featuring products (made in the USA, of course) from its impressive roster of makers, Join also solicits new product design, curates its own collections for popular trade shows, offers mentorship programs and organizes retail pop-ups. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Multimedia artist Aleksandra Pollner’s

unique and modern approach to traditional furniture constructs, as shown in the table above, left, is breathtaking; designer Melanie Abrantes creates chic accessories (above, right) using beautifully grained wood and cork, the nonconventional material of our dreams; and The Granite’s expert handling of form and function makes even the most mundane of objects extraordinary.

ΠL.A. BOX COLLECTIVE

LOS ANGELES WHAT IT IS: A community built by Los Angelesbased furniture makers, L.A. Box Collective started as a way to bond over the group’s shared commitment to working with sustainable materials while engaged in sustainable practices— something they continue to honor through a particularly thoughtful mission statement. WHAT IT DOES: Not only does the collective encourage and provide support to makers who seek to tackle their craft with a mindful approach to the environment, it also puts on joint exhibitions of work completed under a common theme: For example, last year, its 10 members debuted a show at the Craft & Folk Art Museum, titled “Windfall,” which featured new works crafted exclusively from wood sourced from local trees felled during California’s historic San Gabriel Valley windstorm of 2011. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Casey Dzierlenga splits her time between Los Angeles and her home base in New York’s Hudson River Valley, where she mostly mills wood from her own land before transforming it into clean-lined masterpieces with an organic feel, as demonstrated by the wonderfully simplistic yet impactful aesthetic of the Alma credenza and Lorca coffee table

(shown above and right); while a foundation and love for midcentury designers fuels designer and craftsman David Johnson’s original works as well as his careful Danish modern restoration projects that somehow capture and preserve their makers’ intentions while offering up a little something extra.

PARIS WHAT IT IS: A Paris-based showroom dedicated to introducing international design lovers to the best of American design, Triode is expanding the conversation surrounding what it means for a product to be made in America to a whole new audience. Founder Jacques Barret presents this generation of American classics along with reissues from greats like Finn Juhl and Richard Neutra. WHAT IT DOES: Barret is making the domestic design movement cool again by bringing it to the epicenter of global chic, Paris— home to one of the furniture industry’s most well-respected yearly celebrations, Maison & Objet—and allowing the pieces to stand on their own against friendly competition from all over the globe. DESIGNERS TO WATCH: Based in New York, Anna Karlin’s eye-catching contemporary furniture forms (shown at left) feel vaguely European but are all produced with the help of local artisans; and Apparatus, Rosie Li and Bec Brittain’s illuminated offerings break the mold on traditional lighting from studios in Brooklyn.

HUBBARDTON FORGE’S DESIGN DIRECTOR DAVID KITTS SHARES HOW ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S OLDEST AND LARGEST COMMERCIAL FORGES IN OPERATION IS EXPANDING—WITH ITS NEWEST LINE, VERMONT MODERN—AND REDEFINING AMERICAN CRAFTSMANSHIP. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY S. CHEVALIER

Speaking of process, tell us how you brought your visions to life. Our design process starts off very hands-on: We make a sketch and often work with steel, paper or foam models, and then we figure out how to illuminate the initial concept. As an unconventional design group, we were able to “loosen up” and really have fun with the offerings. We quickly realized, though, that fun isn’t always easy; there’s a fine line between a design that is simple and a design that is pure. Striving for this purity has been both enjoyable and challenging. Why is it so important to continue to honor the company’s tradition of craft? It’s a part of Hubbardton Forge’s legacy—the commitment to the handmade—and it was one of the driving forces behind Vermont Modern. Everyone here believes in it, which is good since a lot of people contribute to the final product. For example, three different departments work intently on constructing the actual form—from molding and cutting the steel to cleaning raw edges and prepping the material for welding. After the elements are forged

LX_COM12_Radar_Debut.indd 108

together, they’re cleaned again before heading to the final three departments, starting with the finishing team. In this stage, the products are powder-coated and cured in our ovens, then sent to assembly, where they are completed and tested before shipping out. Share some of the materials you added to this line to complement Hubbardton’s signature steel. We introduced Vermont maple in a natural finish that is locally sourced from Maple Landmark, a wooden toy crafter 30 miles north of the forge in Vermont. We thought the wood element added a nice natural contrast to the steel, and its natural state adds a touch of Danish modern appeal.

Do you have a favorite piece in the collection? While I am intrigued by the Metro pendant (shown here), and the duality of its piping acting as a functional and primary decorative element, I am also drawn to our Copernicus design. It is very different from anything we have ever done, as it is very minimal and comprises only three basic components: an LED light, steel rails, and wooden balls that act as isolators. In the past, we would have tried to add a forged-steel element to give it something more, but with Vermont Modern we are really trying to keep the design pure by boiling it down to its innate essence.

PHOTO: JUDE GOLDMAN .

Hubbardton Forge’s newest collection is innovative and fresh and marks a shift from its more traditional offerings. What was the inspiration behind the line? The initial goal for Vermont Modern was to appeal to a younger, more urban demographic, to people who appreciate high-quality, contemporary design from a socially responsible domestic manufacturer who still crafts each piece one at a time.

RADAR / BEHIND THE BRAND

Family Affair MCKINNON AND HARRIS EMBRACES A LOCAL, HANDMADE ETHOS, INSTILLING A SENSE OF TRADITION AND PLACE IN THE COMPANY’S OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS.

“We always say that we don’t want to be the biggest outdoor furniture maker in the world; we just want to be the best,” says Anne Massie, the cofounder, with her brother Will, of Richmond, Virginia-based McKinnon and Harris. For the siblings, the key to being the best means keeping things local. The pair opened their doors in 1991, and the area, itself a historic center of craft, provides a spark that has allowed the company to thrive. Says Will Massie, “McKinnon and Harris could never live in an industrial park; we crave the energy and inspiration of our city.” Born from rough pencil sketches, McKinnon and Harris’ furnishings are handmade in a workshop flooded with light thanks to a clerestory running the length of the building. After being refined by the Massies and their team of engineers, the designs are put into production in a process relying on methods both old and new. Hammers, mallets, hand files of varying shapes and sizes, chisels and clamps can be found in the factory, along with a 62-person force of craftspeople who possess knowledge and skill born of years of practice. “You can palpably feel the drive for excellence and innovation and hear the hum of hands working and the sounds of metal being formed,” says Will. Time-honored practices, though, share space with cutting-edge technology, especially when it comes to the company’s coating process, which manages to be both environmentally friendly and effective. Inspiration for their pieces comes from traditional sources: A new collection launching this spring came by way of a nautical-feeling, French Art Deco chair from the 1930s. The roots of new designs also start closer to home—namely from Anne’s garden at her historic residence. “Spending a lot of time there makes it easy to realize what would

LX_COM12_Radar_BehindTheBrand.indd 110

make my own outdoor spaces more comfortable,” she shares. There’s also the Wyatt garden table collection, titled after the Massies’ grandmother, Ella Wyatt McKinnon Massie, while their Beaufort club chairs are named after a family dog always on the lookout for the most comfortable seat. The siblings are committed to keeping their focus on outdoor furnishings and their operations local. “Absolutely no one knows as much as we do about building and coating beautiful aluminum furniture,” notes Anne. “For now, we plan to continue innovating and perfecting our first love.” And, in keeping with that smaller yet better ethos, they’re staying small and close to home. “Our pieces deserve to never see a factory floor,” says Will. “Plus, it would be impossible to achieve our level of perfection on any larger of a scale. Mass-producing McKinnon and Harris’ Beaufort club chairs gather around a Wyatt table or overseas manufacturing would (top) at the home of company cofounder Will Massie (shown center, left, be a completely soulless endeavor, with sister and business partner Anne Massie); the duVal-Alexander sun and we couldn’t do it.” bed is shown above.

DESIGN PASSPORT LOOKING TO BOOKMARK A NEW MUST-READ WEBSITE? LUXE CATCHES UP WITH COSTAS VOYATZIS, THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND YATZER.COM AND ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING VOICES IN INTERNATIONAL DESIGN. WRITTEN BY BRIELLE M. FERREIRA PORTRAIT BY YIORGOS KAPLANIDIS

What made you decide to launch Yatzer? My obligatory draft in the Greek military came up. I had actually delayed it for quite a while, but at the age of 26, I couldn’t put it off anymore. So, I was drafted, and I had to leave my job, the career I was forging and all the contacts I had made behind, and I worried that the year and a half in the military would halt my career. It was this fear, that I’d lose touch with the industry, that actually became the catalyst for yatzer.com. I wanted to stay connected even though I wasn’t physically present. It began as my private blog and evolved into what it is today. Share your most-loved part of the job. I love to attend trade shows and do market coverage because I always discover hidden design gems. Although it takes days to complete my research after the shows, I can’t wait to press the publish button and share my discoveries with people who don’t have the chance to travel

Perhaps it’s not hard to believe that the same place that gave us the Acropolis and the Parthenon—Athens, Greece—would still be making major offerings to the worlds of architecture and design. Today’s contributions, though, aren’t being built with painstakingly stacked brick or stone, but with pixels: Greek native Costas Voyatzis’ international website, yatzer.com, has become an undeniable resource for design lovers all over the globe. Here, Voyatzis, a former magazine editor and avid traveler, retraces the path that led him to creating one of the hottest corners on the web and serves as the super-hip tour guide for all the best of the overseas creative scene. yatzer.com

and attend these shows but want to “relive” them through my eyes. But, also, it is important to cover these events for the people—designers and companies—who, although they have participated in the shows, due to their hectic schedules, don’t even have the time to check out what’s happening in the stand around the corner from theirs or in a different hall from the one they are in. Do you have any favorite trade shows? Definitely the first place belongs to Salone del Mobile Milano, which is a part of a much bigger event, Milano Design Week. Although there is never enough time to see everything, it is still the place where the industry’s major trends are born. Next, I have to mention Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, because who can ignore Scandinavian design? And, then, the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium, which has been happening every two years since 1968; the careful curatorial job behind it is visible in every detail of the fair. Top five brands to watch in 2017: For furniture, I’ve got my eye on Ginger & Jagger out of Porto, Portugal; for lighting, London’s Bert Frank has so much promise; Fabscarte from Milan has my vote for shaking up the world of wallpapers; Barcelona-based Octaevo is turning traditional stationery on its head; and, finally, Kikof from Tokyo has absolutely incredible offerings in ceramic tableware. Tell us about the products you have on your own wish list. There’s desk sculptures by graphic designer and architect Kristina Dam from Copenhagen. The set comes with a round paperweight in stoneware, a triangle bookend in marble, a wooden cone and an arc in brass (all shown on previous page). I also love the Ora Sculptural

table clock by the Switzerland-based design duo Panter & Tourron—a collaboration between Italy’s Stefano Panterotto and Alexis Tourron from France. The Stadium Light No. 1 by Danish furniture and product designer Niclas Jørgensen is also a favorite, as are the Touch trays by Studioilse for Zanat. Finally, I’m a big fan of the Plugged series of carafes, jugs, soliflore and table lamps by Lebanese interior architect and product designer Richard Yasmine. Why do you think it’s important to talk about design with a multicultural lens? There are many design sites around the world that focus on domestic design, but I believe that yatzer.com gives readers a wider perspective. It affords them the opportunity to see the trends as they are being created around the world, and they can therefore witness their progression and subsequent development. Is there a particular country whose design scene is really interesting you right now? What instantly comes to mind are the wireweaving works being created in Africa. These are amazing to me because the artists are combining modern technology—telephone wires—with traditional weaving techniques and craftsmanship. The results are so unique.

From top: The Plugged series of drink and glassware from Lebanese designer Richard Yasmine; an assortment of Touch trays by Studioilse for Zanat; and the Ora Sculptural table clock by Panter & Tourron.

MARCIANO ART FOUNDATION This spring, the Marciano Art Foundation unveils its new home in one of L.A.’s most curious buildings. The foundation, established by Guess cofounders and brothers Maurice and Paul Marciano, purchased the 110,000-square-foot Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in 2013. The imposing, windowless white-marble structure was designed by Millard Sheets in 1961 and quickly became a Wilshire Boulevard landmark. Empty since 1994, the foundation allowed the building to retain its original features but gave Kulapat Yantrasast, the founding partner and creative director of Culver City architecture firm Why, the opportunity to create a modern 65,000-square-foot exhibit space. Admission is free, but the foundation is quick to point out that this is not a museum, per se. Rather, Maurice calls it “an incubator for artists.” The inaugural exhibition, “Unpacking: The Marciano Collection,” is organized by former MOCA curator Philipp Kaiser. marcianoartfoundation.org

TALKING SHOP WITH PAUL DAVIDGE

NOT SO GENERAL When did you open? We opened our doors at 7209 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood in December 2016. Tell us about the concept. I wanted to cater to a broad clientele whose common interest is a love for good design, so I created a gallery-showroom-store hybrid. By featuring everything from off-the-shelf items and made-to-order furnishings to vintage works, I’m able to offer something to clients with different budgets, spaces and lead-time parameters. And the location? We’re in an up-and-coming part of Hollywood that many view as the best neighborhood to source the latest in contemporary design, fashion and art. Why L.A.? Although I’m from London, L.A. has been my home for 10 years. The city has changed a great deal during that time, becoming a mecca for creators in art, fashion and design. However, it is still difficult to find good contemporary work as L.A. tends to focus on midcentury design. Describe the shop. Instead of vignettes, we have an art gallery feel—works can breathe and be more appreciated for their design and craftsmanship. Clients have embraced this uncluttered approach as they can envision how pieces can suit their specific needs. What will visitors find? The ombré glasswork of Amsterdam-based Germans Ermičs, exquisitely crafted furniture by domestic artisans, exclusive pieces by L.A. design studio Early Work, and we just got some cool resin chairs by New York-based Kim Markel. For most of our designers this is their only home in L.A., so you won’t be able to find them anywhere else. notsogeneral.la

IN HIS WORDS: “Within this finite format, using only my phone, I have been able to dabble in photography. I don’t think there is necessarily a strict vision, but I suppose it’s a reflection of my own sensibilities as a designer, or maybe sometimes an homage to images by other photographers I admire.”

SHELF LIFE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IS HAVING A BANNER SEASON FOR COFFEE TABLE DECOR. HERE, ARE FOUR NOTABLE TOMES BY CREATIVES TO ADD TO YOUR HOME LIBRARY.

ADOBE HOUSES: HOUSE OF SUN AND EARTH From its earliest structures—and especially its iconic Spanish Colonial missions—California has been associated with adobe architecture. In this new book, with photography by David Glomb, author Kathryn Masson delves into 23 adobe homes, including historic Casa Boronda built in 1817 in Monterey and Casa del Oso, a contemporary home in Santa Barbara that illustrates how adaptable and relevant the vernacular style is today. The book examines adobe architecture’s interior traditions and courtyard gardens, often lined by a covered walkway that helps shade the house. rizzoliusa.com

MIDNIGHT MODERN: PALM SPRINGS UNDER THE FULL MOON TOM BLACHFORD Over the course of three years, Australian photographer Tom Blachford documented the modernist houses of Palm Springs entirely by moonlight. The images have an ethereal beauty and present some of the area’s most famous homes (the Kaufmann Desert House and Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms Estate, among them) in a bold new way. Without sunshine and sparkling pools to distract, a more mysterious side of Palm Springs is revealed. powerhousebooks.com

RANCHES: HOME ON THE RANGE IN CALIFORNIA MARC APPLETON The American West still beckons with a new book from renowned L.A. architect Marc Appleton. Alongside photographs by Melba Levick, Appleton tells the tale of ranch-house architecture and its interiors, with styles as varied as the 150-year-old Rancho Camulos adobe near Fillmore (the setting for Helen Hunt Jackson’s novel Ramona) and Jack London’s New England-style Beauty Ranch in Glen Ellen. The book features 19 ranches that run the stylistic gamut from rough to refined showcasing living on the land. This coffee-table book is a testament to the enduring appeal of a romanticized yet often unforgiving way of life. rizzoliusa.com

TROUSDALE ESTATES: MIDCENTURY TO MODERN IN BEVERLY HILLS STEVEN PRICE

LAUNCH NICKEY KEHOE

L.A. designers and shop owners Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe of Nickey Kehoe have long been known for their innovative approach to creating homes, but with the launch of their new collection, Heart of the Home, they have turned industry tradition on its ear. Rather than releasing two large series annually, the duo have decided to release four micro-collections over the coming year. “It allows us to produce more idiosyncratic, timely, narrative-driven pieces rather than conventional collections. It lets us be nimble,” says Nickey. “It also allows for a more intimate conversation with our clientele.” The designers are known for creating kitchens that double as living areas in which clients can welcome family and friends, and they created Heart of the Home with that lifestyle in mind. The collection includes such furnishings as the Spindleback dining chair (above) and the Curved sofa (below), which were inspired by vintage pieces, a three-tier freestanding island and smaller handmade items including whiskey tumblers by Sheldon Ceramics. “It speaks to the evolution of space and how we live today,” Nickey says. nickeykehoe.com

Trousdale Estates, a 410-acre residential enclave in the hills overlooking Los Angeles, has been home to numerous Hollywood stars—Elvis Presley, Elton John and Jennifer Aniston, to name a few—since the 1950s, yet only now has a book been published on its spectacular history. Author Steven Price documents more than 50 homes, presented by decade, highlighting designs by leading architects of the day such as Wallace Neff and Paul R. Williams and their contemporaries who brought many of the homes into the modern day. Price’s peppering of historical events and society gossip make it an entertaining read. reganarts.com 144 / LUXESOURCE.COM

With concurrent projects in Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades and Brentwood, designer Alison Palevsky is fast on her feet, and just last year launched her eponymously named Brentwood shop. The boutique, which offers fine furniture (including her own collection, XPalevsky), decorative objects and jewelry, has quickly become one of the city’s go-to design destinations. While the shop and residential projects require her to be on the Westside, meetings frequently take her to the Eastside. “I also use vendors as far as South El Monte, so I’m always running from place to place,” Palevsky says. What she’s picked up along the way is a deep understanding of Southern California culture and how people want to live today. New to the shop is the custom Joile bar cart, which she originally designed for a client, and a marble collection from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Embedded with brass studs, the pieces “will add edge to any interior,” she says. Here, Palevsky dives into her daily routine scouring shops while sourcing for projects and inspiration. Although, she adds: “A typical day for me is never typical.” palevsky.co Greek salad—it’s prepared tableside. If you’re up for a caloric splurge, order it with the truffle fries. 2 p.m. After lunch, wander through Thomas Hayes Studio in Hollywood. There, you’ll find a great mix of contemporary and midcentury modern pieces. I often go there searching for barstools or end tables for clients. 3 p.m. Next, make your way to Neptune Glassworks downtown, where owner Uri Davillier designs and fabricates custom lighting and glassware in addition to artwork and exhibits. A great example of Davillier’s work is on display at Otium—he designed the lighting in the restaurant. 4:30 p.m. After visiting Otium, walk next door to The Broad museum to check out its collection of postwar and contemporary art, as well as one of the new rotating temporary exhibits. Just a short drive away is Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, a new

international gallery devoted to contemporary art and modern masters—it’s definitely worth a visit. 6 p.m. Since you’re on the east part of town, make it a point to stop for drinks at Perch—a rooftop bistro with stunning views of the city. End the day with dinner at Bestia where great design— think industrial tile, steel and marble mixed with pendant lights and airy booth seating— blends with even better food. The menu is rustic Italian with handmade pastas, pizzas and, of course, pastries.

STRIPED DOWN NATASHA LAW: IN HER WORDS

7

Medium: Gloss on aluminum. Trademark: Delicate while maintaining a distinct contemporary feel. Women’s intuition: To capture the female form in vulnerable and intimate moments. Sources of inspiration: Usually from an image I find or a photo I’ve taken. Over the last few years, my process is generally sparked by a person or people around me and something about them I want to capture. Art school confidential: I grew up in a creative household, so after receiving my degree in history, I returned to art school because it felt natural and right. Role models: Ellsworth Kelly, John Baldessari, Tom Wesselmann, William Eggleston and Annelies Strba. Life motto: Don’t 4 panic. My art is… Vivid, figurative, simple, seductive and graphic.

KATE LONG STEVENSON: IN HER WORDS

8

Medium: Acrylic, gouache and watercolor—layered with charcoal. Trademark: Abstract Expressionist, representational and feminine. Women’s intuition: The female form is universally relatable and beautiful, and I love to take that familiarity and turn it on its head. Art game changer: Decidedly the biggest shift in my career was the decision to create for myself and not the market; it’s refreshing to produce work that I am passionate about. Creative influences: Painterly work—from Impressionism to John Singer Sargent’s brushstrokes and glowing color—and Abstract Expressionists like Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning. Never too many… Laughs, long conversations, lunch dates or snoozebutton hits. My art is… Gestural, energetic and mysterious.

CURVE APPEAL CAROLINE WALLS: IN HER WORDS

6

Medium: Both oil and synthetic polymer paint, along with charcoal and graphite. Trademark: Figurative—I tend to drift between abstract works, breaking down the line and form of a figure, and representational pieces. Women’s intuition: I deeply appreciate the aesthetics of the female form, its curves and sensuality, but I’m also interested in what lies beneath the surface, as the unseen aspects of a person are so easy to overlook. Art school confidential: I have always had a keen interest in the arts, so after five years of working abroad as a designer and art director, I finally returned to Melbourne, Australia, and enrolled in a postgraduate visual arts program. Creative influences: Marlene Dumas, Elizabeth Peyton, Louise Bourgeois—all women who work figuratively and with the female form. My art is… Spontaneous, fluid, sensual, free and evocative.

9

Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas. Trademark: Mythopoetic and magical while forming a unique visual reality. Women’s intuition: Approaching portraiture in a fresh way, I want my female subject to have color and flavor and evoke an otherworldly dimension of pure mystery. Art school confidential: After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, I moved to New York City and the exposure to the art world and museums ultimately stimulated my desire to be a painter. Creative influences: Nature, light, color, meditation, Japanese aesthetics, tantric painting, and poetry by Han-Shan and Pablo Neruda. Dream collaborations: Traktung Yeshe Dorje and the band Just a Tourist. Role models: Sarah Sze, Nick Cave, Yayoi Kusama, Kara Walker and Kerry James Marshall. Life motto: Unlearn. My art is… Sublime, mysterious, abundant and real.

CONCRETE JUNGLE A TOUCH OF GREENERY ACCENTUATES AN IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY OF SIDE TABLES, CEMENTING THEIR STATUS AS CHIC ADDITIONS TO ANY URBAN DWELLING. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATE BERGERON PHOTOGRAPHY BY KATE BENSON

SUSAN COLLINS WEIR

INTERIOR DESIGNER STUDIOCOLLINSWEIR.COM

The Parker nesting tables… Play with motifs from various eras. It’s clear from the tables’ neoclassical and early-19th-century influences that Showers cleverly drew her inspiration from traditional, triedand-true European design that somehow feels extremely fresh. Composition: The decorative aspect of the design is a strong counterpoint to the minimal urban backdrop, while the decadent bronze complements the magnolia leaves, adding warmth to the concrete. On keeping it real: Authentic and original design is vital to the work of designers. It drives the profession forward and underpins our collective advances, challenging us to reinvent the norms and push art and design forward. I’m impressed with Showers’… Innate ability to mix and revamp decorative styles, and her line with Kravet exemplifies her knack for bringing this cross section of furniture genres to one of the industry’s top design powerhouses. Creatively speaking: Good proportions and strong materiality are what I look for in an accent table, and these nesting tables epitomize both.

LX_COM12_Market_Spotlight.indd 168

1/18/17 11:40 AM


BRONZE BEAUTY THE PIECE: Parker Nesting Tables THE DESIGNER: Jan Showers FIND IT: kravet.com THE INSPIRATION: Inspired by her antique and vintage finds while traveling through Paris, Dallas design dame Jan Showers collaborated with Kravet to create a collection of glamorous yet practical pieces that add a stately-meets-subtle warmth to any setting. Showersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fondness for vintage brass and bronze, as well as good cable jewelry design, was the catalyst for the Parker nesting tables, which perfectly capture the designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penchant for all things Parisian.

TINY WONDER THE PIECE: Pedestal THE DESIGNERS: Vera Kleppe and Åshild Kyte FIND IT: esaila.com THE INSPIRATION: Stirred by a perennial curiosity to explore fresh materials and unexpected design forms, Norway-based design studio Vera & Kyte continually pushes the envelope with its sleek and electrifying creations. Pedestal holds true to those aesthetic ideals, making this versatile side table a perfect—and dynamic—addition to any home.

JEREMIAH BRENT INTERIOR DESIGNER JEREMIAHBRENT.COM

Vera & Kyte’s designs… Feel so easy and chic. What a unique pairing of form and function throughout this piece while maintaining total simplicity; nothing is over-designed, and yet it still feels like high design. Material connection: I love how the marble and perforated steel almost seem at odds, yet they are so harmonious together. Having lived in New York City… I am connected to this composition instantly. There is nothing like partaking in daily life (which can be real and messy and beautiful all at the same time) in a place like New York to truly understand the concept of a “concrete jungle,” and this composition reflects that experience perfectly. Visual play: Pedestal’s luscious curves cast against the sharp corners of the concrete highlight Vera & Kyte’s piece in a distinctly effortless and luxurious way. Creatively speaking: This table is a gorgeous compilation of so many periods of design and a true jack-of-all-trades: It’s as edgy as it is sophisticated and would work perfectly in just about any space.

I’m enamored by… Sean O’Hara’s masterful use of natural materials. The intricacy and sheer geometry it took to perfectly configure each piece into the finished product is incredible. This attention to detail and artistry elevates the design to an utmost standard of luxury. Material connection: These accent tables encompass multiple senses, providing not only sight and touch but also conjuring the sense of smell with their natural wooden qualities. A statement piece… Like this one can stand proud on its own accord without the need for additional attendees. Let’s be honest, no one wants a room full of items that compete. There is beauty in the ability to cultivate and curate our surroundings. Design is cyclical… Ever-evolving and ever-changing. We have to be cognizant of the pulse that inspires us to reinvent and keep design current. Creatively speaking: This design reminds me to find playfulness in refinement and that whimsy and sophistication are a beautiful blend.

LX_COM12_Market_Spotlight.indd 171

INTO THE WOODS THE PIECE: Spruce Occasional Table THE DESIGNER: Sean O’Hara FIND IT: oharastudio.com; arudin.com THE INSPIRATION: It’s clear that Sean O’Hara, an accomplished artisan and avid skier, gets his kicks from the great outdoors, or in this case from the frozen mountain landscapes where pinecones are bountiful and enchanting species of wood are abundant. Assembled with layers of imbricated solid-wood plates and shown here in both the Grey Sienna and Espresso finishes, the Spruce occasional tables remind us that bucolicinspired designs are indeed evergreen.

SET IN STONE THE PIECE: Italia Terrazzo Stone Inlaid Table THE DESIGNER: Susan Hable FIND IT: maitland-smith.com THE INSPIRATION: Artist by trade, Georgia’s Susan Hable is a magical force in and of herself, helming the multimedium Hable Construction design studio with her sister and partnering with Maitland-Smith to create an accessories line that is distinctly modern and full of flavor. The Italia Terrazzo Stone Inlaid table illustrates her aesthetic ideal, which Hable realized by mixing patterns to add dimension to each piece within the collection. Mission accomplished.

TODD NICKEY + AMY KEHOE INTERIOR DESIGNERS NICKEYKEHOE.COM

Susan Hable’s designs… Seem rooted in nature, and we love her ability to create modern compositions with her subject matter. Her collections with Maitland-Smith bring out the company’s whimsical side in an earthy and delightful way. Composition: The understated nods to an urban garden evoke, for us, a South American midcentury mood. Material connection: With its many iterations, terrazzo often gets overlooked in certain applications, as it’s often used in large commercial spaces. We love that this particular use of the stone blend appears to read as foliage and has a transporting quality. There’s a reference to precious stones with this moody color palette that feels extremely luxurious as well. On keeping it real: In today’s crowded marketplace, we gravitate toward pieces with an emotional charge more than ever. The artistic intentions in Susan’s designs do not go unnoticed here with this dynamic piece.

TWIST OF FATE THE PIECE: Fold Accent Table THE DESIGNER: Darryl Carter FIND IT: millingroad.com THE INSPIRATION: A master of color and style, Darryl Carter introduces his inaugural collection with Milling Road, a Baker lifestyle brand, designed to embody an individual and thoughtful spirit. With pieces sensitively scaled, each creation was concepted with a curatorial sensibility that is reflected here in the Fold accent table, which boasts a multifaceted base that is both understated and extraordinary—a Carter trademark.

LX_COM12_Market_Spotlight.indd 173

BELLA MANCINI

INTERIOR DESIGNER BELLAMANCINIDESIGN.COM

I find Darryl Carter’s work to be eternally inspiring: He is able to convey a sense of serenity with his nuanced neutral palette and minimalistic collections of sculptural furniture. Material connection: There is a subtle tension between the industrial feeling of the powder-coated metal base and the elegant marble top. Creatively speaking: I’m especially drawn to the asymmetry of the bases and how their restrained luster allows for the angles to pop. I’d love to flank a sofa with a pair and position them askew to bring visual interest to an elevation. The industrial quality… Of the metal and the dynamic twist in the base remind me of artist John Chamberlain’s sculptures made of crushed automotive metal. They both share a sort of “machine age” elegance. On keeping it real: In a very dense world of design, it’s imperative to have a narrative and remain authentic to your aesthetic and values. Carter’s collection with Milling Road is a perfect example of just that.

RISE AND SHINE THE PIECE: Put on a Pedestal THE DESIGNER: Caracole FIND IT: caracole.com THE INSPIRATION: With a highly curated portfolio of high-style furniture, Caracole continues to wow the furniture market with timeless designs, brilliantly highlighted à la Put on a Pedestal. Inspired by a faceted bracelet, the accent table reads as a symbol of true luxury, resplendent and modern all at once. With its silky gold bullion finish, the piece, dare we say, shines bright like a diamond.

SUMMER THORNTON

INTERIOR DESIGNER SUMMERTHORNTONDESIGN.COM

Caracole’s dazzling accent table… Reminds me of a cut-jewel ring. Those sharp angular cuts and that grandiose yet practical shape catch your eye the way a fine piece of jewelry might. Composition: I am all about contrast when designing a space, and the pairing of the industrial environment with an as-polishedas-they-come piece feels luxurious, personal and even a little edgy. Finishes are the key… To a really gorgeous design. Oftentimes, gold and brass, albeit classics, just aren’t polished enough for me, but a gold bullion finish brings an incomparable sheen—it’s practically a gold mirror finish, which I find sexy and dramatic. Creatively speaking: Much of my work is grounded in traditional lines and architecture, so I’m always on the hunt for pieces that provide that necessary edge. The shape and allure of Caracole’s design fits the bill in that it’s fresh with just the right amount of flair.

ELDORADO STONE OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

When beginning the design or renovation of any outdoor living area, Brent Spann, president of Eldorado Stone, advises clients to “think about how you live and what you enjoy doing—be it reading, hosting, family time—and plan the space for that use.” He continues, “Ultimately it should fit the homeowner’s lifestyle and within the scale of the space ... with ample seating, a fire feature, shade and a kitchen, of course.” While many design trends come and go, the focus on indoor-outdoor spaces remains with an emphasis on creating a cohesive look for a seamless transition from the inside out. Conversation and living spaces with fire as a central point continue in popularity, as well as the extension of “smart-home” technology to outdoor living spaces. To accommodate today’s vast variety of outdoor options, Eldorado Stone offers an extensive outdoor product lineup, ranging from elegant fire bowls to inviting seating walls and beautiful outdoor kitchens, that transforms any personal retreat through color and texture. “We seamlessly marry design with functionality, making it easier than ever to create a memorable space,” Spann says.

Q+A What is inspiring you now? Year-round use of the outdoor space, even outside of the Sun Belt. Creative use of the space and amenities beyond going outside to grill a steak. Also, creating secondary living spaces for smaller areas in your outdoor space, like in a side yard or balcony. What are some design elements/innovations in outdoor living that you’re excited about? Outdoor-rated fabrics, furniture and appliances that look like they would belong in your indoor space. Not your grandmother’s plastic-covered lounge chair. What makes your product/brand distinctive in terms of material selection, product quality and functionality? Our fire bowls bring a heightened level of design and elegance to any outdoor space and come in a variety of styles, from classic to modern. Made from strong, glass fiberreinforced concrete and hand-sanded through a four-step finishing process, each fire bowl renders a true one-of-a-kind creation with subtle variations in color and texture, similar to natural limestone. 1

“Outdoor living is not a trend, but an extension of the home and an area that gets as much design attention as any other part of the house.” 2

FLEETWOOD WINDOWS & DOORS OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

An integral component of every home design, windows and doors go beyond changing one’s view. They impact security, energy efficiency and the resale value of your home. So when choosing the right doors and windows, homeowners must consider myriad decisions; everything from material selection and insulation to ease of use and maintenance. And for a seamless transition from the inside to the outside, “your window and door products must blend with the architectural intentions of the home,” says Mark McCoy, General Manager of Fleetwood Windows & Doors. To take the most advantage of the views, more and more homeowners are seeking larger expanses of glass for their multi-sliding and pocket doors, such as operable doors with leak-proof flush tracks that house glass larger than 60 square feet. “The insulated glass industry is introducing new technologies making larger glass available,” McCoy says. “And we are rising to the occasion, designing new and innovative products to accommodate this advancement with great success.”

“We create large, modern-style windows and doors that operate smoothly, require little maintenance and last for decades.”

THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE ALUMINUM Aluminum has become the material of choice for windows and doors because of its inherent strength, beauty and versatility. Since 1961, Fleetwood Windows & Doors has been using this fantastic resource to create its enduring windows and doors. As the most green and sustainable window material, aluminum is in high demand in luxury modern home designs across the country. To meet this demand along with the growing movement in green design, Fleetwood has applied thermal technology to its shapes to improve energy efficiency. Additionally, as insulated glass becomes available in larger sizes, the company continues to innovate with new aluminum products to accommodate today’s changing market.

HUBBARDTON FORGE OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

Lighting designer and manufacturer Hubbardton Forge has helped extend interior residential spaces seamlessly to the outdoors with its equally aesthetic and functional light fixtures. “Today, we think about the ‘home’ differently. It doesn’t end at the back door,” says David Kitts, design director at Hubbardton Forge. “People want to live fully, both indoors and out. We have given a lot of thought, during the creative process, to materials and finishes that stand the test of time and weather.” This vigorous approach distinguishes the company, which has, despite its success, maintained its handcrafted, domestically made values. Founded (and still based) in Vermont, Hubbardton Forge makes sure that, as Kitts notes, “Any piece leaving the forge is touched by multiple hands throughout the process of its creation. When you look at a Hubbardton Forge lighting fixture, you’re seeing the artistic achievements of a team dedicated to design.”

WESTERN WINDOW SYSTEMS OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

The popularity of outdoor living continues to surge at a record pace with consumers prioritizing these spaces as critical to a home’s overall look, feel and design. One trend growing in popularity is 90-degree multi-slide doors which, according to Scott Gates, president and CEO of Western Window Systems, “enable consumers to utilize moving glass walls to open up two walls of their home and flow the kitchen and living room to the outside.” Sustainability is also key, and an essential part of the design process at Western Window Systems. “Outdoor living is enabling consumers to leave a smaller carbon footprint,” Gates continues. “By making their outdoor patio a true feature and living space of the home, consumers are now able to build smaller, smarter homes. We believe everyone deserves the ability to open up their home on a beautiful day to entertain guests, laugh around the fire pit and enjoy a beverage.”

“We create products that are taller, wider and with more glass than anyone else in the industry. ”

CASTELLE OUTDOOR LOOKBOOK

The exposure and interest in the outdoor room and outdoor decor has skyrocketed, with many new homes designed around outdoor spaces or renovated to incorporate an outdoor living area as a focal point. Thus, enjoying the best of outdoor living is at the heart of luxury outdoor furniture manufacturer, CASTELLE. “Every outdoor space should incorporate elements for lounging, cooking, dining and entertainment,” CEO Steve Lowsky says. “And each room within the outdoor space should provide comfort, durability and the opportunity for showcasing personal style.” With the multitude of options available in outdoor decor today, styles can be mixed and matched according to homeowners’ preferences, such as with CASTELLE’s new Vertice line. Designed with contemporary styling, oversize seating and sleek angular lines, the diverse collection complements any home or owner’s lifestyle. When sourcing high-end outdoor furniture that’s easy to maintain and longlasting, Lowsky suggests looking for these distinguishing characteristics: intricate aluminum castings and extrusions; multistage finishing; artisan-applied antiquing; all-weather cushions; and state-of-the-art functionality in fire features and action furnishings.

DESIGNER COLLABORATION BARCLAY BUTERA With designer collaborations and collections trending in outdoor living, CASTELLE debuts its innovative designer collection from celebrity author and designer, Barclay Butera. Incorporating the creativity of Butera with the handcrafted luxury of CASTELLE, the collection showcases glamorous, yet inviting furnishings for designers and design-conscious buyers. “Creating this spectacular collection has been a fantastic experience. When I first approached the design process, I was inspired by this magnificent geometric ceiling carving I saw in an English manor,” Butera says. “And I’ve incorporated this pattern into carpets, wallpapers and now the fretwork for outdoor furniture; I think it translates beautifully!”

A ROOM WITH A HUE RICH PALETTES AND DRAMATIC CONTRASTS BRING ENERGY, PERSONALITY AND MAJOR STYLE TO THE HOME’S MOST-FREQUENTED ROOMS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

While it’s safe to say we are still living in the era of the all-white kitchen and bath, there’s no denying even the smallest flourish of color can cast an irresistible spell. After all, 90 percent of what we take in via our senses comes to us through the gift of sight, and there’s little that commands our vision more than bright, beautiful color. No wonder a palette change has the power to reinvigorate a tired cook space or bring spa-like serenity to a bath. A color refresh offers a fearless antidote to what are often neutral utilitarian spaces, and who knows that better than designers? For some it’s a minor dalliance—the oft-quoted “pop of color” comes to mind—while for others, it’s a full-blown affair with a particular shade, as in this stunning forest green kitchen. Whatever your style, join us as we make the case for painting with bold strokes. 226 / LUXESOURCE.COM

GREEN SCENE

DEVOL KITCHENS This British company is leading the way in kitchen design, offering a fresh take on traditional English style. For this particular project, designer Helen Robson employed unexpected color to create depth and drama. devolkitchens.co.uk

How do you usually bring personality into the kitchen? While open shelves are practical, they also allow the client to display a bit of character, whether it’s through a collection of bowls or, in this case, lots of old paintings. A kitchen is so much more than a utilitarian space and having an area to display something personal helps to create a warm, welcoming feel. What’s your favorite thing about this design? I love that this kitchen is actually a really simple design of four bespoke cabinets. Simplicity is key in carrying off such a daring color choice. Of course, I also absolutely love the room’s originality and how it’s totally infused with the personality of the client. It never felt like she was trying to copy a look, but to devise something that was completely her own.

Share your vision for this project. Our client’s father was an antiques collector; so, we wanted to create something that really reflected that old gentleman’s club look. Dark colors are very of the moment, particularly green. In addition to being on trend, green also evokes nature. Part of the reason it works so well in this kitchen is that it ties the whole space together and brings about a cozy feel in an otherwise cavernous space.

WALL

The ever-popular color blocking trend isn’t confi ned to the runway. For this Laurel Canyon, California, kitchen, architect Barbara Bestor used a wall of dark blue and walnut cabinetry to anchor a predominantly white space. “The not-quite navy is a classic color, but here it feels modern,” says Bestor. Carrying the walnut through to the island and incorporating handmade ceramic lights by Heather Levine help balance the angular lines with more organic elements. The result: a cook space that’s sleek without sacrificing warmth. bestorarchitecture.com

UNDER THE

HOOD

When a stove is the star attraction, the supporting players need to stay relatively neutral, as in this family kitchen from Sarah Richardson Design. “The client requested the La Cornue range, so we decided to go bold with the color and mix metals for interest,” says designer Natalie Hodgins, who, along with Kate Stuart, helmed the project for the firm. Keeping the fixed elements, such as the soft gray millwork and honed marble countertops, quiet allows the bright blue stove and hood to steal the show. sarahrichardsondesign.com

PATTERN MAKER

Whether used in a backsplash or underfoot, tile is a sure way to dial up the pizzazz in the kitchen. Proving that even the classics can benefi t from a revamp, both subway and hexagonal styles feel exciting when rendered in new colors and finishes, as demonstrated in the above offering from Clé. The company’s latest hex collection features subtle color blocking in blush and coral shades and can be rotated numerous ways to produce different, graphic designs. cletile.com

Artisan Tracy Glover uses traditional Italian techniques to craft exuberant, one-of-a-kind handblown glass lights in a multitude of shapes, patterns and colors. The Enoki pendant (shown here in plum with an oil-rubbed bronze fi nish) is just one example of Glover’s commitment to customization. tracygloverstudio.com

In this master bath, situated in a Victorian townhouse in the heart of Notting Hill, London, a Spey castiron tub from Drummonds provides the perfect canvas for color. Brass fixtures were left unlacquered and unpolished to allow them to age naturally and acquire a rich patina and golden color. On the wall behind the tub is a vintage Art Deco screen, sourced from France.

Soft hues make spaces feel serene, so it’s no wonder muted tones are a perennial choice for the bath. A far cry from the retro bubblegum pink lavatories of yesteryear, today’s pastels pack their biggest punch when used sparingly. Here, a colorful roll-top cast-iron soaker picks up a pale coral from the whimsical patchwork tile floor. Shades of salmon, cream, cobalt and olive blend to form a space that doesn’t so much jolt you awake as ease you gracefully into the day.

Every painterly detail of this wallcovering has room to breathe while making a perfect conversation starter for those gathered around the table. 2 / Neutral Revival: Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to compete with the illustrative detail; instead of bold colors, opt for neutral hues, like in the soft taupe of the textured area rug and dining chair slipcovers, to act as complements in the space. 3 / Room with a View: Forgo the formal chandelier and preserve a clear sight line to your dramatic wallcovering with more simple lighting. The delicate framework of this lantern-inspired pendant adds quiet architectural interest overhead while letting the artwork shine through. 4 / Garden Variety: Continue the idyllic charm of your provincial wallcovering with some rustic decor accents. This trio of worn wooden urns, filled with hydrangeas in full bloom, makes the perfect companion piece.

To give a rather austere London town house a youthful edge, New York City- and London-based designer Rebekah Caudwell cranked up the color by bringing in Jonathan Adler aquamarine velvet sofas and a red cabinet from Sabina Danenberg Atelier; the curtains are Pierre Frey’s Mauritius linen. “I wanted the look to be joyous and energetic—more Palm Springs than bookish Bloomsbury,” she says.

AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE LATEST TIPS, TRICKS AND TRENDS TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR HOME. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

TECHNICOLOR VISION With the arrival of spring comes a riot of color. Consider the brilliant yellow of daffodils or the bluish-purple of hyacinths bursting forth from the ground. But why should Mother Nature have all the fun? This period of rebirth and renewal is the perfect time to rethink color inside the home. For the last few seasons, white walls have dominated the design space, but tastemakers are now slowly turning to saturated hues and bold brights that command attention, as in the vibrant and cheery sitting room shown here. “Your home affects your mood, so why not make it a happy place?” says the room’s designer, Rebekah Caudwell. Over the next few pages, come along with us for a lively romp through the many colors on the spectrum.

HAUTE HUE

There’s a reason fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli’s signature shade was “shocking pink.” The fearless style maverick believed the vivid color had life-giving properties. No wonder designer Amanda Nisbet chose a similar fuchsia for the dining room of this Park Avenue apartment in New York. “The saturated pink silk walls are luxuriously sexy, while still being cozy and welcoming—the perfect atmosphere for a successful evening,” she says. amandanisbetdesign.com

2PINK

PRETTY IN

Shaking off its girly connotation, blush has emerged in the last year as an unconventional yet versatile neutral. Here, it lends a merengue-like quality to a plush, velvet club chair. With its channel-back design, the Charlotte armchair by India Mahdavi is strikingly sculptural and elegant. It’s proof that this particular shade of pink is all grown-up now. ralphpucci.net

THE REAL

Just like a good book can be an escape from reality, a library should be a haven from the outside world. For this Greenwich Village apartment, New York-based design firm Tilton Fenwick blanketed the library walls in a rich teal lacquer, a color inspired by the classic Schumacher print in which the sofa is upholstered. “Since the room has no windows, the lacquer envelops the space, creating a jewel box effect,” says the firm’s founder Anne Maxwell Foster. We can’t think of a more stimulating environment in which to while away a few hours. tiltonfenwick.com

Variegated shades of indigo are hand-applied to concentric wrought-iron circles to form the Graduation chandelier by Hiroshi Koshitaka. The brilliant sapphire hue was inspired by the color of vintage textiles dyed to look like a starry night sky, with gold-leaf accents and a warm interior finish contributing detail and depth. At over 4 feet tall, it makes a seriously impressive—and colorful—statement. curreycodealers.com

charming Taking a “what’s old is new again” approach, Atlanta-based designer Melanie Turner injected fresh life into a traditional blue-and-white chinoiserie-inspired guest room with the addition of emerald greens and acid yellows. “Custom pagoda-style window treatments bring a dose of whimsy, while reflective elements such as the hammered-gold bed, vintage mirrors and a unique Bunny Williams gilt drink table add shine and serious glamour,” says Turner. melanieturnerinteriors.com

COLOR

Blue continues its reign as a cabinet color of choice in the kitchen, but judging from this dining space, its popularity is spreading to other parts of the house. Here, San Francisco-based designer Grant K. Gibson employed Sandberg’s floral Raphael wallpaper and high-gloss blue paint to draw attention to a built-in bar area. The result: a functional entertaining hub that’s also a stunning focal point for dinner guests. grantkgibson.com

FRENCH TWIST

For this luxury apartment on the Rue Bonaparte in Paris, designer Gérard Faivre looked to the building’s Second Empire pedigree for inspiration. “Emblematic colors from that era—oranges, greens, blues and shades of gold—symbolized wealth and luxury, and now bring sparkle to the home,” he says. With its friendly, convivial atmosphere and bistro table and chairs, the space also pays homage to the chic cafes of its neighborhood, Saint Germain-des-Prés. gerardfaivreparis.com

PUNCH

Austin-based designer Elizabeth Mollen of Stone Textile found inspiration for this living room in an unusual source: her client’s collection of midcentury flamingo prints. “We picked a deep-blue wall color and used that as a starting point, then pulled colors from the artwork,” says Mollen. A violet rug, pale lavender upholstered sofas and a green malachite stool add to the color story, creating a subtle and sophisticated jewel-toned palette that’s definitely not for the birds. stonetextilestudio.com

There’s more than one way to make a bold entrance: consider this New Orleans foyer designed by Ty Larkins. A graphic, black-and-white hand-painted floor brings youthful joie de vivre to a foyer painted with Farrow & Ball’s Chappell Green. “The introduction of black tempers the vibrancy of the wall color, resulting in visual harmony,” says Larkins. Apple green lampshades and 1940s-style French furnishings strike a balance between whimsical and traditional. tylarkins.com

RENOVATION Renovation means transformation. Whether changing the foundation or improving your home’s flow, increasing the function of a kitchen and bath, or upgrading windows for energy savings, communication is key to any project’s success. While aesthetics plays a starring role when it comes to reasons to renovate, increasing the value and character of one’s home have found an even greater level of importance. Giving rise to the world of renovations is the great outdoors, where decks, rooftops, hardscapes and more have found a new home, so to speak. When taking on any project, industry pros remain committed to incorporating “green” alternatives—creating a healthier world and home, inside and out.

No home renovation is complete without new, plush bedding and linens. Between the Sheets of Orange County and Los Angeles has helped adorn countless interior spaces with its sumptuous furnishings, fabrics, accessories and bedroom and bathroom linens. The company’s talented staff assists homeowners and designers with large and small residential interior renovations and offers insight to what works—and what doesn’t work—in today’s updated homes. For starters, adding color in repetition over a backdrop of neutrals is a small yet impactful change for an interior. Selecting white, ivory or taupe for walls, floors and furnishings can help ensure a more timeless interior. However, bed scarves, seemingly futile strips of fabric that lay atop a bed, are superfluous, the company’s staff observes. Instead, use a throw to embellish a bed top, which offers utility and decoration.

“When renovating a home, become involved at the start. Begin with neutrals, add color. Be patient.”

At Denise Morrison Interiors, it’s all about creating a vision for each home that is exciting and welcoming. “Every space presents its own opportunity,” says the firm’s namesake and principal designer Denise Morrison. “Great design incorporates balance, texture, color and scale. We never lose sight of a client’s desires, but we also encourage the unexpected, especially when we know it will enhance the overall look, feel and mood.” Whether working on new designs or remodels, Morrison and her team strive to create within this philosophy. Asked to identify renovations that are often overlooked yet add value, Morrison points to lighting. “It can set the mood and add so much charm to a home,” she says. “Properly planned art lights, a pin spot over a cocktail table and adequately lit kitchens and work spaces can dramatically impact the comfort and style of a home.”

“We are a team. Once that is established, great ideas begin.”

Morrison advises against using trendy construction materials to make design statements as they are large investments and not easily altered. Rather, she opts for trendy objects that can be easily updated, such as lighting, fabrics or smaller furniture pieces. She adds, “I also always incorporate something vintage, regardless of the aesthetic, as it creates a sense of history and prevents a space from looking predictable.”

J WALSH CONSTRUCTION, INC. San Diego | California | 619.892.7908 | jwalshconstruction.com

Southern California homeowners remain at the forefront of today’s building renovation trends in the use of new technologies coexisting with repurposed and environmentally sound building materials. Clean design, whether it be traditional or contemporary in style, is now being defined by the user experience. Jon Walsh, president of J Walsh Construction, Inc., builds this methodology into projects where innovative and technologically advanced building materials meet with old-world craftsmanship. Recognized as a premier builder known for the revitalization of historic, traditional and contemporary homes, Walsh predicts that 2017 building trends will continue to integrate indoor-outdoor living; provide for flexible space to maximize the user experience; repurpose unused space for storage; and integrate technological advances in materials with the precise craftsmanship for which his team is known. Walsh notes the current UX design innovations, born in the technology sector, are seen in building materials, such as seamless doors, which provide flexible and integrated living spaces, and smart home technologies, which support ecological issues and the repurposing of space to reduce the carbon footprint of the residence. This “clean design” trend underscores the lifestyle and cultural changes which are prominent today.

“User-focused environments are the current trend in home renovations in 2017. Integral to this userexperience (UX) design trend is the integration of new technologies, flexible living spaces and environmentally sustainable materials to create a clean design style and functionality.”

MATERIAL CHOICES 1. Opt for more sustainable and environmentally sound products. 2. Say no to VOCs. Volatile Organic Compounds are released as gases from products such as paints, lacquers, building materials, furniture and carpets. 3. Integrate and repurpose materials when possible, or donate sinks, doors, light fixtures and lumber, stone and other building materials. 4. Consider the conditions under which materials are produced. 5. Think and shop locally. 1

A CONFLUENCE OF OLD + NEW “Our work on many historic homes in the area, designed by Irving Gill and Sy Richards, informs our ability to integrate new technologies and materials into residences of all kinds,” Walsh says. “Gill’s use of space is a classic example of how the environmental considerations of today can be informed by the architectural designs of the early part of the century.”

SK DESIGN & BUILD El Cajon | California | 619.277.9904 | skdesignnbuild.com

The possibilities in which to reinvigorate a home are seemingly limitless, but resale interests should be considered when renovating—just ask custom home builder and remodeler Sarmad Kaka of SK Design & Build. Kaka, whose work spans highly personalized new construction to commercial venues to reimagined, upgraded spaces in existing homes, notes the importance of blending individual tastes with long-term value. “Updating kitchen appliances is worth the most per square foot and will make the difference, while kitchen cabinetry and countertops are at the top of the percentage of kitchen costs, but also show the most return,” he explains. “In kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing fixtures with high-end finishes help, and the more closets, the better.” Above all, Kaka notes, environmentally driven residences, outfitted with energy-efficient products and recycled, enduring materials, prevail in California. “There are systems that make the most of every energy dollar and every drop of water,” he says.

“When people look at new homes, they are drawn to the plans and architectural lines; but the real beauty of any space is more than skin deep.”

RENOVATION ADVICE Visual impression and first impact should be highly regarded in remodeling projects. Create a clear, full concept that has the budget, schedule, style and colors well identified. Use items that translate the design concept in a simple way, avoiding complicated ideas; focus on the valuable products. Take into consideration that any changes through the first stage are acceptable, while alterations after the execution will cause financial and timely damages. Try to pick items from the local market that ensure a return as much as possible. Green building products, practices and techniques make a big difference.

ALL THINGS CONSIDERED + Eco-friendly homes bring in a higher value. + Master bedrooms are a high commodity for buyers. + Modern vanities and kitchen cabinets help infuse a space with a more contemporary look. + Windows with high R-values help resist heat and cold transfers from the outdoors. + New technology in porcelain and vinyl flooring gives a strong impression of natural materials. + Innovations in lighting provide artlike pieces, enriching ceilings and walls.

Discerning homeowners and design professionals have long sought the products of Sub-Zero and Wolf. Combining contemporary design with superior performance, the renowned company has carved a niche in the marketplace where utility, aesthetics and technology converge. Its acclaimed appliances teem with possibilities for high-caliber cooking, high-tech interaction and high energy efficiency—from flush inset cooktops, handleless wall ovens and integrated refrigeration to convection steam ovens, countertop ovens with convection, built-in coffee systems and wine refrigeration. Before embarking on a kitchen renovation, it’s advisable to visit a Sub-Zero and Wolf Showroom to learn firsthand what’s new and next in the appliance spectrum. Microwaves, for example, are gradually becoming obsolete with the advent of the Wolf convection steam oven, which, according to Sub-Zero and Wolf West and Southwest President Randy Warner, is unprecedented in its versatility and intelligence. “Choose the cooking mode combining steam and convection that is ideal for your dish, and the oven’s unique digital technology adjusts all of the details of cooking. Bake bread, roast prime rib, even bring leftovers back to steamy, flavorful life,” Warner says.

“A kitchen renovation not only adds value to your home, but becomes a space where you, your family and guests enjoy a lifetime of moments worth savoring.”

VINTAGE CELLARS San Marcos | California | 800.876.8789 | vintagecellars.com

Wine storage has evolved from its highly utilitarian origins to become an artisanal showpiece within a home. From contemporary glass-front cellars, holding 250 to 500 bottles horizontally, to classic, finely crafted rich wood wine cellars in species such as white oak, Sapele mahogany and black walnut, design styles for wine storage are as varied and distinct as the objects on display. Gene and Cira Walder, principals of Vintage Cellars, a custom wine cellar designer, builder and purveyor based in San Marcos, California, typically create cellars that store and showcase hundreds to thousands of bottles. The breadth of styles has increasingly become more modern, with glass, metal and acrylic features incorporated into the design; however, the classic approach to wine cellars, with custom wooden racking, remains a mainstay. In the near three decades of business, the Walders have become experts in constructing wine cellars into existing structures. Their first piece of advice is to work with licensed, bonded and insured contractors. “If building permits are required along the way, obtain them to ensure personal value and overall safety of the home,” Gene says. “Be straightforward with your budget and realistic with your timelines.”

“With unique design elements interlaced into luxury lifestyles, ‘wine as art’ is becoming ever-present.”

A PROJECT OF A LIFETIME “In the early 2000s, a client requested a project in a cave he had dug into the hillside of his Marin County estate. His wine cellar housed 45,000 bottles of rare French Burgundy and Bordeaux wines,” Gene Walder shares. “The project required several months of design, production and installation within the restrictive conditions of the narrow cave corridors. Upon a recent conversation, the client still loves his wine cellar, and everything functions as perfectly as it did 15 years ago.”

WHAT’S NEW IN WINE STORAGE + Dramatic improvements in temperature- and humidity-controlled cooling systems and insulation + Innovative new lighting options + Remote access to wine cellars’ internal climate and environment + Increased energy efficiency, such as high R-value insulation, dual-paned thermally insulated glass and solar (where possible to offset cooling costs)

T

he new San Diego house that designer Susan Spath created for her clients speaks with a French accent. But, Spath is quick to note, “There are historic details that are French, but always with a new twist. I call it deconstructing—taking old elements and simplifying, so it’s not overly fussy.” She points to the slab installation of limestone as one area that merges timelessness with a modern edge. Architect John Jensen concurs: “This is a contemporary version of a country French home—real stone, real brick, real slate roof tiles.” Getting the four-bedroom home, dressed in Southern Buff limestone and sitting on half an acre, to capture the feeling of a rambling country farmhouse was not without its challenges. “It’s a narrow lot,” says Jensen. “It became a necessity to be as efficient as possible with the room layout, especially the circulation, so that the path from

room to room uses as little area as possible.” The result is a floor plan that feels ranch-like, because most of the living spaces and master bedroom suite are contained on the first level. At its core is a 40-by-40-foot space consisting of the kitchen, an adjacent great room and a morning room, the last comprising stylish living and dining areas connected to a covered outdoor room. The sheltered outside space doesn’t miss a beat in transition and features a cozy upholstered sofa, armchair and ottoman, yielding indoor comfort outside. Vaulted ceilings over the morning room, kitchen and great room and a tray ceiling in the master bedroom, installed under the direction of builder Greg Agee of Greg Agee Homes, lend volume and architectural interest, and barreled dormers bathe the spaces in light from above. Exposed hand-distressed Douglas-fir beams emphasize that farmhouse feel, while painted cabinetry hints at elements added over time. LUXESOURCE.COM / 281

The great room’s seating—a pair of sofas in a Fabricut textile and lounge chairs in a Robert Allen chenille— emphasizes comfort. A Lillian August coffee table is central to the space, while the round Habersham Home tables add colorful notes. Southland windows, dressed with draperies in a Robert Allen fabric, offer views to the pool. Grounding the room is a Decorative Carpets floor covering, and lighting the area is a Fine Art Lamps lantern. The urns filling the cabinet niches are from Four Hands.

Careful planning went into other spaces as well. “We actually reframed the house to fit the kitchen,” says Spath. “There was not enough room to fit all the appliances, so we opened a wall.” Here, Habersham Home cabinetry is finished in matte white, dry brushed and subtly highlighted with gold and is grounded by a gray-finished island with a Côte d’Azur limestone top. The same stone dresses the backsplash, while the counters are finished with quartzite. Nearby is the great room, which integrates the fireplace and flat-screen TV into a feature wall with niches for decorative accessories. “The room is casually comfortable but still elegant, as it is all open to the other rooms,” she says. The home’s dreamy, pale palette reflects the outdoors, with blues, creams and whites in a range of muted tones defining the spaces. The wife asked for a bit of color, namely lavender (notably in the master bedroom), but the overall effect is natural and not jarring. “What’s important for me,” says the designer, “is that the eye travels, that nothing is super loud. It’s peaceful, with an inside-out approach. Walking through the house is very calming. It’s warm, and the palette makes it feel comfortable.” For all its old-world charm, Spath brought in touches of glamour that animate the spaces. The morning room’s coffee table and occasional tables are finished in brass and are accented with more brass-tone accessories. Likewise, light fixtures lend another dramatic layer, including a swooping chandelier over the dining table, a pair of pendants over the kitchen island and a substantial lanternform design in the great room. A powder room, anchored by an eye-catching black-and-cream checkerboard-pattern floor, takes a likewise glam turn, sporting a pendant and sconces composed of gold-edged flowers and a wallcovering featuring birds perching on delicate branches.

A Stroheim wallcovering and Davis & Davis carpet provide the foundation for the master bedroom. Hovering above the Century bed is a Fine Art Lamps chandelier, while sitting atop the Modern History chests are Theodore Alexander lamps. Swathed in a Maxwell Fabrics textile, the chaise is perfect for lounging. The windows sport draperies in a Fabricut material and shades from Superior Roman Shades.

As with the architecture and interiors, the gardens—the work of landscape architect Steve Ahles—reference traditional style mixed with modernity. Perhaps most reflective of that impulse is the expansive swimming pool replete with a stone cantilever coping and a separate but adjacent raised spa that spills into the pool. “It’s classical, rectangular—nothing fancy, new or shiny. But it’s a great solution that fits the yard very elegantly,” says Ahles. The plantings too have a decidedly traditional-meets-modern feel. Ahles describes it as “clean, clean, clean—kind of linear with tiered plantings, including roses, lavender, blue fescue grasses, privet and boxwood.” Spath contributed to the look outside as well, placing pots filled with ornamental calamondin, a hybrid citrus and kumquat that sports glossy green foliage and aromatic orange fruit. Ultimately, the abode the designer and the rest of the team created seamlessly blends old-world impulses— Jensen even instructed the masons to lay the exterior stone irregularly for authenticity—with contemporary comfort. And while the accent may be French, the home speaks an international language of style.

NATURAL HABITAT FOR A TRIO OF LA JOLLA CREATIVES, THE WORLD AROUND THEM PROVIDES ENDLESS INSPIRATION FOR THEIR COMPELLING COLLECTION OF TEXTILES AND WALLCOVERINGS. WRITTEN BY YELENA MOROZ ALPERT PHOTOGRAPHY BY NINA CHOI

T

he La Jolla space Modra Studio Textiles & Wallcoverings cofounders Fernando Apodaca, Tamalyn Krecic Shea and Sarah Shea share offers spots for working with oils, charcoals and pastels, allowing them to easily move between the mediums that serve as the foundation of their designs. The creative base where they dream up their varied and intriguing wares, though, extends far beyond their studio walls. In fact, they head to the beach almost daily and sketch there nearly every week, on the hunt for inspiration. “In the summer, we snorkel frequently,” says Apodaca, the company’s art director. One such field trip yielded a pattern in their new collection. As the story goes, senior designer Sarah Shea was working in the tide pools on a series of drawings—abstractions of sea foam floating in the ocean and watereroded rock formations—using metallic gold ink. The result, a golden, lacy motif, aptly named Tidepool, became a scarf and eventually a design suitable for drapery in their upcoming spring 2017 collection. The team subsequently filmed the fabric floating in the Pacific waters to see how it fit in the environment that drove Sarah Shea to pick up her paintbrush in the first place. “Its ethereal quality validated the concept,” says Tamalyn Krecic Shea, the brand’s CEO and creative director. Modra’s dreamy textiles and wallcoverings hit showrooms in New York and San Francisco in 2016, including Studio Van Den Akker and De Sousa Hughes, but the company’s origin dates to 2008, when Tamalyn Krecic Shea and Apodaca met at a fund-raiser. By 2011, they were discussing how textiles derived from fine art could tell a story. LUXESOURCE.COM / 293

Modra Studio’s Tamalyn Krecic Shea and Fernando Apodaca (right) are shown at work in their La Jolla studio. Apodaca’s architectural sketches (above, left) join the company’s Obsidian fabric and a tape artwork that inspired a new textile, Facets. Also filling Apodaca’s sketchbook are drawings of rose windows (above, right). Shown opposite is a collection of the studio’s compelling fabrics.

“I already had a passion for experimental sculpture—weaving various mediums like paper, leather, masking tape and glass into a myriad of forms,” says Apodaca. Textiles gave him and his colleagues a medium that could offer a new way for their work to be appreciated—with designers incorporating it into their own projects. Modra Studio’s offerings defy easy stylistic categorization. Some designs brim with riotous, saturated color while others are restrained, understated and monochromatic. They’re most often rendered in cotton, linens and velvets and may be embroidered, digitally printed or handsilk-screened depending on the design. In the case of Glyph, featuring curvilinear line drawings inspired by the sea life of the South Pacific, the team opted for hand silk-screening the design on natural linen to give it a warmer, more organic feel. For Turkana—an allegorical design rendered first in carved and woven paper depicting the winds that buffet Lake Turkana in Kenya—they used digital printing to capture the original artwork. Much like an abstract painting, Modra Studio’s wares express a notable depth of feeling. “Textiles play such an integral role in helping designers bring meaning into an environment,” notes Tamalyn Krecic Shea. “We want those who experience it to be drawn back and see different layers each time, just like a favorite painting you never tire of because it’s always revealing something new.”

nterior designer Paul Vincent Wiseman refers to “the long body of our memory”—a metaphor he uses to describe his work at the Bel-Air home of longtime clients. As he puts it, “We bring our past and our future simultaneously to a place. I’m pulling the house from the past but also projecting it into the future.” The past of which he speaks is the ornate Beaux Arts home on San Francisco’s Nob Hill that he decorated for these clients, and the future is the home in Bel-Air that looks nothing like it. Actress Judy Garland originally commissioned the house from architect Wallace Neff in 1938. It is airy and open, situated on 2 1/2 acres with a pool and writer’s cabin in back; and though the exterior exudes old-line East Coast style, the interior layout is classic L.A. casual. The owners had considered buying it in the mid-1970s before decamping to San Francisco to work and raise two daughters—they bought it on the spot when it came back on the market shortly after they retired and returned south. “I walked in and fell in love,” the husband says. “It almost took my breath away.” Adds the wife: “It had been beautifully restored. You feel the serenity as you walk in.” The owners had no problem abandoning their Beaux Arts aesthetic—and many precious antiques—to create a new environment. “We love good design and what’s appropriate for a place,” the wife says. “Nob Hill felt like a Parisian apartment, but what was right for Nob Hill isn’t right for L.A.—in a canyon, with a more casual lifestyle.” To that end, they instructed the San Francisco-based Wiseman, along with design principal Brenda Mickel and associate design principal Jessica Redondo, to go where the house led them. “Because we trust Paul completely, we gave him no directive,” the wife says. “We asked him to tell the story of the house.” The story had already begun with the previous owner’s beautiful renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms, and all the rooms were painted pearly gray, which provided a

“WE BRING OUR PAST AND OUR FUTURE SIMULTANEOUSLY TO A PLACE.” —PAUL VINCENT WISEMAN

LX_NA35_CA42_HOM_Wiseman_18.indd 298

pleasing neutral setting for the team to move forward. “It was in perfect condition,” Wiseman says. Mickel agrees. “We didn’t have to change anything,” she says, “which is incredibly unusual for our firm.” The designers added to the foundation by using gauzy linen Roman shades throughout the house to establish a visual flow and sisal rugs with Ultrasuede grid lines that connect the spaces in the first-floor rooms. “It was a detail as well to add that trim so it wasn’t a vast amount of sisal,” Redondo says. The color scheme emerged from those gray walls and the wife’s collection of pale pink, blue and celadon vases that came from Nob Hill and now grace the master bedroom mantel. “They were in these dreamy colors, so we just built around that,” Mickel says. Wiseman’s “long body of our memory” perspective informed how the home would be furnished. Antiques that made the cut from San Francisco were used sparingly in the new interiors, and the furnishings that survived were reupholstered in glazed linens. “All the new furniture was very contemporary, and all the old furniture was covered in contemporary fabrics,” Wiseman says. Most of the new furnishings are custom—the curved seating in the home’s prominent bay windows and the modern sectional and stitched-leather coffee table in the sun room—while the owners’ surviving antiques get top billing wherever they are placed. The deep honeyed finish on matching antique rosewood chairs in the living room, for example, stands sharply in contrast to the pale linens around them. “We tried to use fewer antiques but let them be special, so they would stand out as sculpture,” Wiseman says. The same idea applies to the foyer’s 19th-century French commode topped with two stark-white plaster lamps in the style of Giacometti. A gilded Japanese screen in the dining room, meanwhile, looks across the room—and the centuries—to a grid of Marc Chagall prints, all of them grounded with Madeline Stuart chairs sporting pared-down neoclassical silhouettes. “We took their traditional roots and peeled them back,” Redondo says of the effect. Likewise, in the master bedroom, Wiseman upholstered a four-poster bed and the owners’ existing armchair in linens, bringing a set of English nesting tables into focus—just enough of a traditional touch but not too much. As for the home’s own place in Hollywood lore and architectural pedigree, Wiseman says that Neff’s layout was a joy to work with. “He understood proportions beautifully, and he got that storybook ambience down,” the interior designer says. But the only spirit inhabiting the house belongs to the owner. “You feel a lot of glamour in this house,” Mickel says, “but that really stems from the wife—she’s a really understated, glamorous woman.”

C

hange is something of a constant in the lives of designers Robin Strickler and Jessica Nutt’s clients. Through the years, they have called a high-rise apartment in New York City, a retreat in Colorado and a Beverly Hills abode home. Most recently, the empty nesters traded a Tuscan-style house in Shady Canyon for a modern two-story dwelling on a rolling green golf course in Newport Beach. “This is such a gorgeous setting,” says Strickler, pointing to the beautifully landscaped grounds featuring swaying palm trees and native succulents around a swimming pool. “It’s like staying in a resort.” Strickler was no stranger to the area where her clients now reside, having worked on several of the homes, ranging from a minimalist vision with sculptural, low-slung Italian furnishings for one resident to another, glitzier affair for an international executive. “All the homes are unique, but this one feels so much different,” Strickler says. “These clients wanted a very comfortable, timeless and understated interior.” Although the home’s existing rift-sawn oak flooring and crisp white-lacquer kitchen evoked a casual sensibility that was apropos for the sunny coastal setting, the house also came with gray walls and ceilings that rose to 25 feet in some places. One of Strickler’s solutions to soften and warm up the interiors was to employ a variety of eyecatching wallcoverings. In the entry, she chose an abstract design that resembles squares of gold leaf, which she combined with a metal-and-shagreen console and a mirror composed of stacked beveled-edge glass panels in a brass-tone frame; it creates a dramatic introduction to the residence. “We wanted something really different and special for this space. The wallcovering adds texture, and it has a little bit of a shimmer,” Strickler says, noting that the pairing also creates a more formal feeling.

“THESE CLIENTS WANTED A VERY COMFORTABLE, TIMELESS AND UNDERSTATED INTERIOR.” –ROBIN STRICKLER

LX_CA42_HOM_Meridian_12.indd 316

Another wallcovering, grass cloth this time, lines the shelves of the bespoke cabinetry in the great room, where Strickler designed the system to go around a newly incorporated gel-burning fireplace. “The cabinetry grounds the space,” she says. The fireplace, set in a stone-faced surround that runs all the way to the ceiling, serves the same purpose. Covered with a gray glazed finish, the cabinetry’s restrained antiqued hue is something of an aesthetic departure for the clients. “It’s very soothing and elegant,” Strickler says. “The owners came from a house that had a Tuscan style, so we decided to make the palette here much more light and airy.” The shade makes an ideal backdrop for an occasional chair covered in an overscale floral fabric with a natural-wood base and a pair of oatmeal linen-covered sofas, which the wife loved from the get-go after seeing them on the designers’ website. “They’re formal, elegant and classic,” says Strickler. A modern waterfall-style cocktail table with a clear-silvered finish and a rustic stump-form side table—a found object—yield unexpected layers to shake things up. In the great room’s dining area, yet another wallcovering, this one a lustrous metallic version made of shimmery squares, distinguishes the space while softly reflecting the light cast by the massive chandelier. “It gave the dining room a feeling of separation from the living room and made the wall feel less bare,” Strickler says. “It’s not a grass cloth, but it has a little bit of texture that’s really pretty.” Surrounding the whitewashed-oak pedestal table, the tall wing chairs with pared-down modern silhouettes— upholstered in silky cotton-velvet on the guest chairs and an embroidered design on the host chairs—ensure comfort during dinner parties. Tactile materials also bring depth to the second-floor family room, which Strickler and Nutt outfitted with custom white-oak cabinetry and a sectional in another neutral hue. A rich wallcovering again appears behind the plush tufted headboard in the master bedroom. Although the suite is adorned in a palette of neutral shades, a sculptural pendant light fixture, draperies with wide stripes and a pair of oversize bedside tables with a chevron pattern add visual interest. “The patterns and textures sort of mix up the serene palette,” Strickler says. “They make it look so much more interesting.” Finally, the designers employed grass-cloth accent walls in the rest of the bedrooms, opting for varying neutrals in each to differentiate the spaces. Strickler and Nutt’s clients, who designed and built several of the residences they have called home, allowed the designers great latitude when it came to crafting their newest residence. “Our aesthetics meshed well from the beginning, and the design process was a collaboration of ideas between us and the homeowners,” Strickler says. The result is an understated dwelling that brims with subtle character thanks to the team’s thoughtful use of texture, pattern and color.

“The spaces we live in have a profound effect on our well-being. Colors, textures and materials are just some of the tangible elements that affect 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. We distill individual preferences, translate personal styles and incorporate worldly fascinations to help each client realize their dream of living in a home that brings them deep joy and an inspired quality of life.” — Kari Arendsen - Principal Intimate Living Interiors has received multiple national and international awards while creating distinctive, enduring and life-changing spaces for clients throughout the U.S. and abroad. Kari’s design vision draws from a multitude of resources, with influences stemming from her extensive travels and life experiences. She and the ILI team have mastered the art of creating the perfect living environment—blending the reclaimed with the refined, the unexpected with the essential.
