Beauty and Sustainability NEOLITH® STRATA ARGENTUM Space I NEOLITH® Urban Boutique Milano (Italy) I Designed by Héctor Ruiz I Photography: Dámaso Pérez Fototec

Neolith® is an architectural skin capable of dressing up any interior or exterior commercial or residential space where it’s applied from floors and walls to kitchen countertops, facades and even furniture. The large format minimizes the number of joints in cladding for decorative and hygiene benefits. The minimal thickness allows it to be directly applied to an already existing surface without the need for prior removal.

It’s a low-maintenance material given its special resistance to scratches, stains, chemicals, high temperatures and traffic. Neolith® also provides the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality given its unlimited possibilities and capacity to resemble all-natural materials like stone, wood and metal.

TRENDING NOW

Every summer, industry leaders and influencers travel to Las Vegas Market to discover hot news and top trends in the world of home design. Here, three interior design firms and “Ahead of the Curve” panelists share what they’re seeing and experiencing in the market, and incorporating into their projects right now.

Currey & Company Francine Wall Sconce

Global Views Quartz Hall Pendant

QUARTZ, CRYSTALS AND MYSTERY Having a natural element that brings glamour and transparency can give a room the allure of mystery. The way quartz material is being shifted into veneers for furniture, lit to create magic within light fixtures and transformed into sculptures so its natural beauty shines on a bookcase, is putting us into a trance.

Steve Somogyi and Filip Malyszko Steve + Filip Design Chicago, IL

Phillips Collection Quartz Sculpture

Noir Buddha Chair, Teak

UNIQUE ART FURNITURE We live in a global world where every major city has gravitated to a modern aesthetic, so it can easily feel the same. Carefully curated, unique pieces add a twist and set a room apart.

Sandra Espinet Los Angeles, CA

Currey & Company Ashby Swing-Arm Sconce

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MIX The majority of my clients today are asking for “updated traditional homes.” I love the balance of time-honored materials and craftsmanship in each of these pieces, making them relevant to how we live today. It’s the mix of old and new that makes something interesting.

RADAR / IN CONVERSATION

Something BORROWED ARCHITECT NINA EDWARDS ANKER SWIFTLY ADVANCES THE CONVERSATION ON SUSTAINABLE DESIGN. WRITTEN BY HEATHER CARNEY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY LESLEY UNRUH

Leave it to Nina Edwards Anker to design a residence that personifies sustainability. The New York-based architect received her doctorate from The Oslo School of Architecture and Design leading to her acclaimed Southampton project, Cocoon House. Here, Anker opens the doors to her Gold LEED-certified home and forward-thinking approach to the built environment. What was your biggest takeaway from studying in Norway? The minimalist aesthetic really resonates with me. Norwegian Pritzker Prize-winning architect Sverre Fehn made structures nestled into the landscape. I was drawn to the contrast between the little homes set against the vast water and snowscapes. That shaped my attitude as to how architecture relates to nature. Let’s talk about the Cocoon House and its unusual curved shape! I was inspired by a yurt in Vermont. I’m interested in how we can use scientific technologies to do what our ancestors did. One of my favorite times of year in the house is a sunny winter day, sitting in a T-shirt in the living room with no heat on and it’s still so warm. These ancient typologies worked for a reason. Your perspective focuses on affect before effect. The starting point is you have a family member with a health issue—in this case, my son has asthma—and you address that before anything else, so the house is a purely timber ‘breathable’ structure. It’s better for breathability and for the climate in terms of CO2 release. So health and sustainability go hand-in-hand? How we address our spaces in terms of well-being and the environment should be in sync. The orientation of the site, breezes, sunlight, lack of clutter—that’s all wellness. Share another example of a well-designed LEEDcertified building. I love the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center. It’s a gateway between the urban and natural landscape. Just because it’s sustainable, doesn’t mean it needs to be overly technical or intimidating. What's next? My book on the Cocoon House launches in August. I’m also working on the Flora and Fauna Extinction Project, making furnishings inspired by plants going extinct in the natural world.

LX_COM31_Radar_InConversation.indd 96

In the hallway of the Cocoon House, translucent colored skylights are designed to enhance the experience in each space. Colors range from vermilion red, signaling sunset and rest, above the master bedroom, to deep yellow, indicating zenith and activity, near the living room.

Paradise FOUND AFTER AN IMPASSIONED RESTORATION, THE SAN YSIDRO RANCH OPENS THE LAST OF ITS DOORS. WRITTEN BY GRACE BEULEY HUNT PHOTOGRAPHY BY TREVOR TONDRO

The silver lining to nature’s wrath is that it tends to bring out the strength and ingenuity in people— and such was the case when mudslides struck the San Ysidro Ranch in 2018. Nestled in the Montecito foothills, much of the beloved resort was buried under mud when a deluge following the Thomas Fire sent rivers of topsoil down the mountains. For owner Ty Warner and the architects at Appleton Partners—who had collaborated on its historical restoration years prior—the mission was clear. First, revive the property to even greater splendor. Second, protect it for future generations by working in tandem with the topography. “We kind of rebuilt from an earthworks point of view,” explains Ken Mineau, principal and project architect. This translated to using the enormous sandstone boulders that had tumbled down the mountain to buttress the banks of the San Ysidro Creek and the foundations of its abutting cottages—a few of which were rotated away from the water. In an imperative investment, a debris basin above the ranch was enlarged to catch future fall, and 400 mature olive and oak trees were planted to restabilize the terrain. With the landscape reborn, a crew of roughly 250 subcontractors descended each day for a year and a half, intent on reestablishing the same architectural flavor to the damaged buildings. Materials catalogued during their first renovation, such as antique oak floors and limestone slabs, were installed anew as an assembly line of tradesmen worked their way up the creek. “It was a Herculean effort, but it’s back to what it was and that’s a beautiful thing,” Mineau says. “Every rock, every tree, every roof is back in place.” Save for one exception: The boulder that came six inches shy of wiping out the 1825 Old Adobe. That stone will remain alongside the historic landmark, defiant. This season, bringing the revival full circle, the last four creekside cottages reopen, beckoning guests with bird song and a piece of history embalmed with great care. “It’s a healing moment,” notes Mineau. “This particular story is just one of many past and many chapters to come.”

Verdant gardens, groves of olive and citrus trees, and an array of California vernacular guest bungalows distinguish the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. Appleton Partners worked to restore and preserve its singular sense of place following mudslides exacerbated by the Thomas Fire.

A NEW WAVE OF CUSTOM HOMES ADDRESSES AN INCREASED APPETITE FOR NATURE-FIRST DESIGNS. WRITTEN BY MARY JO BOWLING PHOTOGRAPHY BY ELLEN LEAK

The words “development” and “sustainability” don’t always go hand-in-hand. But a growing number of architects and developers are working to change that perception, and are doing it in a way that connects luxury homebuyers with nature. “The smart use of natural resources in architecture is the key to a better future,” says David Lang, principal at Lang Architecture, who recently designed a lakefront community in Taylor, Mississippi, with this approach in mind. “For buyers, it’s an investment in preserving and protecting the landscape, which furthers a sense of ownership.” At Splinter Creek, the setting takes center stage. Homes on the 650-acre property “minimize human intervention into nature, while maximizing the effects on habitants,” says Lang. Each home—in addition to being crafted with sustainable materials and passive solar techniques—is designed to seem as one with the bucolic landscape. Inspired by nearby barns, Lang composed the handsome, modern structures with materials such as cypress timbers and galvanized metal. “The locally sourced wood will gray as it weathers,” says Lang. “And when it does, it will blend in with the environment.” But that’s not to say “blending” the dwellings means nestling them into the ground. On the contrary, homes sit, at least partly, on stilts and piers. Not only does this give them the appearance of hovering, it minimizes the touch of man on the earth. “It also allows for a great water view,” adds Lang. Experiencing the water and nature is also by design. Large window walls are oriented to the lakes and the volumes are broken up into separate buildings—sometimes connected by a traditional dogtrot, or open-air passage—allowing residents to experience their surroundings as they move through the day. The architect calls the luxurious homes meticulously detailed and refined, but they’re not opulent mansions—most designs clock in at roughly 2,000 square feet. “Although they are generous, especially in the public spaces, they are smaller houses created that way intentionally, so they don’t overwhelm the landscape,” says Lang. “To us, a strong connection with nature and simplicity are the ultimate luxuries.”

LX_COM31_Radar_Buzz.indd 100

Each home at Splinter Creek sits upon 2 to 18 private acres, offering buyers seclusion and an immersion with the raw natural surroundings— the latter of which architecture principal David Lang describes as “a necessity for well-being.”

DESIGNERS WEIGH IN ON THE PERFECT WHITE PAINT. PRODUCED BY KATHRYN GIVEN WITH SARAH SHELTON / PHOTOGRAPHED BY DAVID PRINCE

“I tend to favor color in my interior design work, but my go-to favorite neutral is Decorator’s White by Benjamin Moore. It’s crisp and clean.”

“Pratt & Lambert Timidity is my No. 1 choice. My entire New York City apartment is painted in it, including the ceilings. It’s an elusive and beautiful khaki shade.”

“Wimborne White by Farrow & Ball is a true white with just enough warmth. I used it for my design studio and shop. I love that it feels bright, but not too stark.”

–JOE LUCAS

–THOMAS O’BRIEN

–SARAH BARTHOLOMEW

“For as long as I can remember, Benjamin Moore White Dove has been a mainstay for designers. It is a classic, soft hue that goes with everything, and we use it constantly for trim and cabinetry.”

“Even when using a base color, it’s important to define the story and point of view. I gravitate toward gray and creamy tones, like Dover White by Sherwin-Williams, to better support surrounding layers of color.”

“Farrow & Ball Pointing is perfect for living spaces. It’s the loveliest soft white that doesn’t read too austere or brilliant. It works well in modern and traditional applications as well as for trim!”

THE INSIDER DANIEL ROMANOFF

Interior designer Daniel Romanoff, known for his tailored aesthetic, has joined Harrison Design’s Los Angeles office as its new director of interiors. “It’s been such a surprising turn of events—it seemed meant to be,” he says. “I love working in a variety of styles, but it’s important to me that my designs always remain balanced, classic and tailored. I’m thrilled to be bringing my skill set to the firm.” Luxe caught up with Romanoff to get his take on work and play in SoCal. harrisondesign.com What are you working on at the moment? Two ground-up projects in Los Angeles as well as three gut renovations of apartments. I need to be busy, so it’s been great to hit the ground running.

OPEN HOUSE SHOPS + SHOWROOMS

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Cambria (9208 Charles Smith Ave., Rancho Cucamonga), a leader in American-made natural quartz surfaces, has launched 20 new designs with tones and organic veining techniques never before achieved (below). Luxury kitchen appliance manufacturer Dacor has opened its new flagship in Irvine (18565 Jamboree Rd.) The brand was founded in Southern California more than 50 years ago. To accommodate their growing line, Portola Paints & Glazes has relocated to a larger space in North Hollywood (10835 W. Magnolia Blvd.). Their newly launched second collection of paints places a greater emphasis on earth tones, including golds, greens, blushes and terra cottas.

Share the best thing about L.A.’s design scene. Southern California has this amazingly chic, quiet and casual vibe. In terms of product, so much here feels understated and elegant. I also appreciate the camaraderie; there’s a genuine community here. Who’s on your radar? I fell in love with the work of ceramicist Ryan Mennealy when I stumbled upon his creations at Harbinger. His lamps are fantastic! I also love everything at Formations and visiting Galerie Half. Quintus is another place with exciting pieces and finishes. How do you enjoy your downtime? I live in L.A. during the work week, but I feel most at home in Palm Springs. I escape there on weekends with my husband and we savor time spent with family and friends, along with a never-ending list of home projects. 114 / luxesource.com

The Norton Simon Museum’s new show “Unseen Picasso” brings together 16 prints made between the 1930s and the ’60s (primarily nudes and muses), but the exhibition seeks to explore the nuances that make these particular prints rare—how the Norton Simon’s differ from other prints done in the same edition, for example, or why their 1946 lithograph Two Nude Women (below) is the only one from that campaign to be printed in color—specifically, an earthy red. The show is on view May 15 through October 19. nortonsimon.org

TALKING SHOP PETER DUNHAM

Long a beacon of the La Cienega Design Quarter, Hollywood at Home is showing off a new look. “It’s friendly, welcoming and breezy,” says founder and designer Peter Dunham, who chose a Farrow & Ball pink shade for the space’s “intrinsically happy” vibe. “I always want to associate my collection with happiness.” Here, Dunham reveals the details of the makeover. hollywoodathome.com What inspired the redo? I felt it was time to give the space a refreshed vibe. One of the biggest changes was opening our front room to connect with the outdoors, which is so much of what we’re about. The idea is also to have items in stock for those wanting to do small refreshes and busy designers on a mission to accessorize their projects. How does the showroom reflect your aesthetic? My style is essentially California eclectic: a blend of American, European and global influences. Hollywood at Home gives me a way to bring these pieces together in clean spaces with high ceilings and great natural light. It’s a laboratory for trying out new patterns and how they mix.

Describe the new displays. Our front room is now a grab-and-go destination; you can shop cushions, lamps, throws and accessories all in one place. We also created an area for our indoor-outdoor teak furnishings, the core of our new brand, Peter Dunham Home— in-stock, ready-to-ship furniture. Wallpapers have also grown, and there’s a shop-in-shop for my own line of textiles. Your favorite debuts? Our dining bench, which I hope people will use in mud rooms and kitchens. And since we’ve got a lot of geometric textiles, we’re adding curves and flowers and reinventing one of our best-selling prints, Zanzibar, as a Sunbrella performance woven.

CHECK IN

The newest boutique hotel in Los Angeles is a polished-up jewel in an unlikely spot. Long a residential neighborhood, historic Whitley Heights was home to legends Rudolph Valentino and Marlene Dietrich, among others, along with many charming garden apartments. The hotel, The Prospect Hollywood, is cleverly born of the latter, a protected 1939 Hollywood Regency design with vibrant interiors by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who once called the neighborhood home. The hotel’s lobby doubles as a stylish lounge where guests are served a continental breakfast under gilded palm trees in view of a lushly planted courtyard just beyond. Its 24 rooms are inspired by the silver screen and exude Bullard’s glamorous yet playful style with their vibrant colors, chinoiserie wallcoverings, leopard-print carpets and vintage finds. The hotel also boasts an exclusive partnership with private work space and members’ club NeueHouse, which all hotel guests have access to during their stay. theprospecthollywood.com

SHELF LIFE FROM CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE TO GARDENS AND THE DECORATIVE ARTS, THESE FOUR NEW BOOKS CELEBRATE THE DIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA STYLE.

▲ SCOTT MITCHELL HOUSES Scott Mitchell Houses is the first book about the celebrated architectural designer known for creating modernist homes that respond to their natural surroundings. Mitchell’s designs are humanistic and offer a warmth seldom associated with minimalist contemporary design. It’s a vision that’s won Mitchell favor from such renowned figures as architecture critic Paul Goldberger, who wrote the foreword; Calvin Klein, also a contributor to the book; and chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, who commissioned Mitchell to design Nobu Malibu. Fashion designer and film director Tom Ford even used one of Mitchell’s homes as a film location for Nocturnal Animals, his 2016 neo-noir thriller. rizzoliusa.com

⊳ DAVID WISEMAN This tome offers an in-depth look at L.A.-based designer and artist David Wiseman’s extensive body of work. Wiseman takes his cues from the natural environment (he used fallen tree branches found on a local hike to create his signature piece, the Radial Branch Chandelier, now in the collection at LACMA) and is best-known for his exquisite craftsmanship and detailed creations in bronze, porcelain and plaster. This book features sketches and photographs of his elaborately sculptural furniture and environmental installations, many of which are in private homes and rarely seen. rizzoliusa.com

California Homes II is the long-awaited follow-up to architect William Hefner’s 2013 book and gives readers another indulgent look at Studio William Hefner’s impressive portfolio—this time with an in-depth look at homes ranging in style from contemporary to traditional. A fifth-generation Californian, Hefner has a profound understanding of refined spaces, openness and natural lighting that seems to come as if by birthright. His practice integrates architecture, interior design (headed by his wife, Kazuko Hoshino) and landscape, and this richly illustrated monograph artfully conveys the depth of character he instills in every project. imagespublishing.com

▲ PRIVATE GARDENS OF SANTA BARBARA In Private Gardens of Santa Barbara, Margie Grace, principal of Grace Design Associates, takes readers on a journey through 18 gardens on properties that run the gamut from luxury estates to modest homes and even a few surf retreats. Their common thread is the practicality with which Grace approaches her work, realizing outdoor spaces that support the lifestyles and personalities of her clients. Each design takes into consideration soil health, native plantings, animal habitats, pollinators and water efficiency as well as beauty. Grace even published her own garden, which is divided into distinctive spaces, inspired by her neighbor, botanical garden Lotusland. gibbs-smith.com

As the principal designer at her namesake firm and the president of Kern & Co., which has a showroom in Solana Beach and an intimate boutique in Rancho Santa Fe, Susan Spath is deeply ingrained in the world of design. She’s also quite familiar with her region of work, being a longtime resident of The Golden State. It’s all evident in Spath’s portfolio, which serves as a visual representation of how clients and colleagues alike have described her style: timeless and tailored. But what does she find most rewarding about her job? Well, … “On this particular project, the client cried with joy when we revealed the home. It was everything they had dreamed of, and that is success, to me.”

The kitchen is worthy of its reputation for being the heart of the home.

THE ESTATE. Brought in for the full remodel of a Mediterranean-style residence, Spath was tasked with the redesign of the bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room, office and bar/game room. She and her team started with floor-plan renderings and drawings, which included details on custom cabinetry, fireplace designs, flooring, baths and lighting design. Next, they coordinated with the builder and landscape architect, and soon, work was underway. In the end, a masterwork of bright warmth and sophistication was revealed.

CAPTIONS 1. An antique French fireplace embodies the sophisticated simplicity of the living space. 2. A clean and understated office inspires a clear head. 3. A backlit onyx backsplash is a highlight of the bar and game room. 4. Spacious and airy, with large glass doors leading to a balcony beyond, the master bathroom is a truly tranquil place.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS > Subterranean recreation. The basement received a major overhaul. “We transformed a dark, confined space into an open and functional bar and game room,” Spath says. “I also added a powder room and laundry room to this level, and converted an old, tired theater into a more transitional space that better suits the homeowner’s taste and needs.” > The designer’s favorite. The kitchen, too, was demanding. The Kern & Co. team completely changed the floor plan, maximizing space and adding a pantry. “There are several distinctive features about this home, but the kitchen is the one I love most,” Spath says. One look at its high ceilings, beautiful cabinetry and uniquely indooroutdoor feel, and it’s easy to see why.

Built in 1820 for a merchant, and soon after purchased by Governor William Aiken Jr., whose family owned the home for 142 years, the Aiken-Rhett house offers a glimpse into antebellum and post-war life in Charleston. Now under the stewardship of the Historic Charleston Foundation, the organization is dedicated to sharing the stories of the enslaved men, women and children who maintained the estate, while also showcasing furniture, architecture and finishes from the mid-19th century.

BEAUPORT, THE SLEEPER-MCCANN HOUSE, GLOUCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS The provenance of the Sleeper-McCann House reads like a rich design novel. Henry Davis Sleeper, one of America’s first professional interior designers, built his summer retreat along the New England shore in 1907. He filled its rooms with a masterful mix, ranging from hand-painted 18th-century Chinese wallpaper to salvaged kitchen doors from his mother’s family’s home. After his death, Helena Woolworth McCann, a fellow collector, purchased the residence and kept much of the design vignettes intact.

HOLLYHOCK HOUSE, LOS ANGELES

Oil heiress Aline Barnsdall commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design his first Los Angeles project—Hollyhock House. Named after Barnsdall’s favorite flower, the floral motif can be found throughout the home. Completed in 1921, it is an early example of Mayan Revival style. In 2015, the estate reopened after a $4.3 million restoration, and in 2019, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, making it the first modern architectural cultural site in the United States to earn the accolade.

MIAMI MOMENT VIZCAYA MUSEUM AND GARDENS, MIAMI

Just south of downtown Miami overlooking Biscayne Bay stands the otherworldly Vizcaya estate. Owner and businessman James Deering envisioned the 1920s property as a modern and subtropical interpretation of 18th-century Italian villas. Despite its historical inspiration, the waterfront estate was constructed with modern techniques and technology for the time. Inside, old and new influences merge, such as Baroque and Renaissance antiques paired with works by contemporary artists.

AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN BY SUB-ZERO AND WOLF HELPS PUT MORE OF THE GOOD LIFE INTO EVERYDAY LIFE.

Your Outdoor Kitchen Starts Here As with the indoor kitchen, an outdoor space should be a reflection of who the owner is, how they live and what they love. This sentiment is shared by Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove. Its best-in-class, versatile products can be experienced at the Costa Mesa showroom and are designed to suit any lifestyle—whether that of the year-round grill master, the alfresco entertainer or the never-miss-a-sunset devotee. “With Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the possibilities are nearly limitless and can come together to create an outdoor space as distinctive as its owners,” the Costa Mesa team says. Although they retain the iconic design elements for which Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove is known, these outdoor products are specially engineered to withstand temperatures of up to 110 degrees, UV rays, salt and moisture elements. Now, homeowners can prepare the same delicious gourmet meals in their open-air kitchen as they do indoors.

LX_SCAL61_AD_Subzero_mp.indd 1

THE ART OF THE GRILL Uniform heat distribution is critical for flawless grilling, which is why Wolf outdoor grills use two types of heat, direct and radiant, to achieve the ideal temperature. Direct heat from the gas burners delivers searing temperatures and rapid preheating, while radiant heat sources distribute temperatures evenly. Plus, every outdoor gas grill is sculpted in precision welded, double-wall stainless steel, so it will not rust or hold water.

“TECHNOLOGY SHOULD SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE, NOT COMPLICATE IT.”


Continuity of technology is a critical component of home renovations. At Modern Home Systems, a San Diego-based company specializing in home automation, designated home theaters and outdoor entertainment centers, the objective of each residential project is to find a solution that fits the homeowner’s lifestyle while incorporating as much of their existing technology as possible. “People come to us to create seamlessness among their technology,” says Otto Benson, president of Modern Home Systems. Intelligent Illumination In constant development, lighting design from a technological perspective is particularly noteworthy. “Lighting control has become a huge part of our industry,” Benson shares. “We have the capability to create scenes with your lighting, whether that be to fit your schedule or for the lights to naturally dim and brighten depending on the actual sunlight coming through the home.”

FINE GRAIN WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATHRYN GIVEN

Move over white. Brown is back—think upholstered textiles, painted living room walls and, specifically, kitchens and baths with rich wood elements. While some may flash back to the paneled kitchens of the 1970s, today’s modern interpretation offers warmth and honors the material’s rich hues and patterning. Certain woods, such as walnut, have a beautiful depth to them that can easily cross boundaries between contemporary and traditional design. As shown here, it really shines when paired with other textures and tones.

LUXURIOUS WOOD DETAILS DRESS UP THE HOME’S MOST FUNCTIONAL ROOMS.

3/19/20 12:19 PM


Court Atkins Group Design Director Deborah Van Plew worked with Element Construction to create this natural wood-inspired Bluffton, South Carolina, kitchen. The walnut cabinetry is by Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry from Palmetto Cabinet Studio. Swaim stools pull up to the island across from a Wolf range, while the side countertops are in Fresh Concrete by Caesarstone.

THE LOOK / KITCHEN + BATH

PERFECT PLANKS

Deborah Van Plew, design director for Court Atkins Group, offers a different perspective on the coastal kitchen for a vacation home in Bluff ton, South Carolina. While still light and bright, the design nixed a traditional white color scheme in favor of beautiful walnut surfaces and dynamic stone accents. courtatkins.com

What elements did you start with? The owner loves green, so the Blue Tides marble appealed to her right off the bat. We started with this material using it on the waterfall island and the full-height backsplashes. From there, the walnut cabinetry offered a warm, organic factor providing just the right complement to the busy stone. The wood really enhances its beautiful green tones. The design is so seamless. There are a lot of intersecting lines here. Instead of hardware, we went for a clean, streamlined aesthetic, but that meant there was no wiggle room for elements to

be off by an inch or two; everything had to align perfectly. We also thought about scale. It was important to carry vertical surfaces like the wood cabinetry to the ceiling for everything to feel integrated and connected. Where are the appliances? The kitchen faces a large great room. I didn’t want anyone to feel as though they were constantly looking into a kitchen but rather just another living area, so we created a galley behind the range. That’s where we tucked all the things you really have to use on a daily basis, including several appliances.

HIGH STYLE

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK In the nearly 30 years since Christopher Peacock founded his eponymous luxury cabinetry company, he’s seen kitchen trends come and go, but wellmade, straightforward designs will always stand the test of time. For one of his latest projects, the king of quality kitchens walks us through how he

approaches putting together the home’s hardestworking room. peacockhome.com Where do you begin when designing a kitchen? For me, I usually start the process before I’m even inside the space. It’s important to be aware of the detailing, materials and arrangement of the rest of the home so the kitchen design is both cohesive and a natural progression. A big mistake is thinking of this room in a vacuum. Walk us through your approach to the materials. The dramatic stone was the first thing I picked out. I considered it as a piece of art in guiding the rest of the scheme. For example,

the gray and blue cabinetry colors were pulled right from the veining. Walnut has been around for a long time but there’s something about this particular wood that I just love. It brings such depth to a design and can simultaneously feel both modern and traditional. How have kitchens evolved? Today, these rooms are not considered separate spaces. Instead, they often open up to living areas, particularly in cities and urbans developments. Because of this fluidity, I wanted the elements in this kitchen to read almost like furniture: The island, oven and wall cabinetry all become decorative pieces incorporating different materials and colors.

WOODEN WONDER

MARIE FLANIGAN

photos: julie soefer.

In a Houston home, designer Marie Flanigan renovated and reinvented the master bathroom to create a statement space with stunning architectural details. Since the original bath was very dark, the first step was to brighten the room and welcome in natural light. To avoid altering the envelope of the building, she implemented a solarium ceiling allowing sunlight to flood the area during the day through solar tubes on the roof. Additional lighting was also added for a soft glow at night. marieflanigan.com

For bathrooms, especially, Flanigan recommends addressing functionality from the very beginning to ensure space is utilized in the best possible way and appliances or fittings are positioned in areas that flow easily. Although the footprint of this room was not changed, so many more usable areas were added including the vanity, bathtub and kitchenette nook. After the technical, ‘macro’ aspects of the design are decided, Flanigan says she turns to micro details like color, texture and materials. Paneled marble walls create an elegant, subtle focal point and were designed to encase the mirrors and sconces. While green stone slabs were the first-round pick, Flanigan and the client eventually decided on honed Calacatta Bettogli, an elevated and refined option. Walnut elements and unlacquered brass finishes, including wood inserts on the Samuel Heath sink fittings, were also introduced to add warmth and comfort to the bathroom. “Natural tones will never go out of style,” says Flanigan.

This spectacular Houston bathroom, designed by Marie Flanigan alongside Kelsey Grant and Sydney Manning, features Ralph Lauren sconces from Visual Comfort & Co. and an Urban Electric pendant. A Palecek chair completes the vanity area.

REFINED ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS LIFT INTERIORS TO NEW HEIGHTS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY GRACE BEULEY HUNT

THE

An eight-story townhouse offered Westport, Connecticut-based architect Roger Ferris a unique opportunity to design a statement staircase. Twelve feet in diameter and comprised of seamless white Corian cladding with white oak treads, the monumental structure was fabricated as a single piece off-site and in turn, lowered in through the roof. Notes Ferris, “It acts as a reinterpretation of a common feature that is well conceived and artfully executed.” ferrisarch.com

STRENGTH IN SIMPLICITY “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci in the 1400s, the mantra has rung true for centuries, echoed in all areas of art and culture, and perhaps none so much as architecture, a field distinguished by thoughtful restraint and fortitude. The next few pages showcase an array of timely architectural inspiration unified by clean lines, powerful function and understated wow-factor. To open the conversation, look no further than this sculptural staircase by architect Roger Ferris—a testament to the enduring dazzle of a less is more approach.

MAJOR PANE

If the view to the courtyard is any indication, a stay in the premier guest room of architect Bobby McAlpine promises to be a singular experience. Located on the lower level of his Atlanta home, the dramatic chamber is flanked on either side by sunken gardens enjoyed via ocular pivoting sash windows fabricated by DQ Ironworks. Aiding in the luminous feel despite its subterranean siting, white plaster walls, ceilings and floors host furnishings of exaggerated scale, such as the 12-foot-long Niermann Weeks table topped with antique French urns. “It was most important to make this room one you’d never forget,” says McAlpine. mcalpinehouse.com

LIGHTNESS of BEING

In the hilltop San Francisco neighborhood of Noe Valley, Malcolm Davis Architecture set about pouring daylight into a historic townhome without sacrificing privacy. Rather than punching windows through its side walls, which would have yielded undesirable views, Davis imagined a long, slim skylight punctuated by the building’s freshly exposed wood framing. Notes the architect, “This is such a captivating element because it’s a moment where a modern insertion expresses the original ‘old bones’ of the house. The skylight creates a feeling of warmth and a connection to the outdoors where you wouldn’t expect it.” mdarch.net

Rachel Bullock and Molly Purnell were working as architects in Los Angeles when a notion struck: Indoor/outdoor furniture options to their tastes were dispiritingly limited. The duo spent the next year learning to weld and soon after, LAUN, their kicky outdoor furniture line, was born. Shown here, the travertine and copper Chord Daybed—inspired by the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels—highlights their dynamic point of view. “We approach furniture similarly to architecture,” says Purnell. “We analyze each piece in terms of materiality, color and texture, and then we synthesize those ideas with more logical form and function requirements.” launlosangeles.com

“Originally, this space was going to be an office for the husband. However, the children fell in love and commandeered it within days of wallpapering,” shares architect Rafe Churchill of this cozy bonus room. Situated in the front portico of the Stanford White Award-winning Greek Revival he built in Sharon, Connecticut,

the space's softly sloping eaves, herringbone linen-clad walls and ceiling, and a fanlight window with views spanning 40 miles create an inspiring retreat for all ages. Notes Churchill, “We wanted to embrace the pastoral setting and historical location while creating a family home conducive to contemporary living.” hendrickschurchill.com

Pivotal MOMENT

For a home on Miami’s Venetian Islands, Strang principal Alexandra Mangimelli drew inspiration from the strong horizontal lines and deep overhangs of modernist architect Alfred Browning Parker, devising a structure she describes as both “rhythmic and purposeful.” To usher the home’s exterior strength into the sleek interiors, the architect opted for a custom black pivot door of imposing scale. Whether closed or open to 180 degrees, the immersive portal erases the divide between indoor and out, connecting the homeowners and their guests with the interior courtyard, sculptural cistern, and beyond, the waters of Biscayne Bay. strang.design

6 FANCY FRIEZE Plaster has transcended its traditional roots of late, lending gravitas to contemporary, even modern interiors. “We’ve seen a notable upswing of interest in sculptural relief, both figurative and abstract,” says Adrian Taylor, principal of Hyde Park Mouldings, the Long Island studio specializing in the design, fabrication and installation of artisanal plasterwork. “It seems people are realizing anew that the marriage of architecture and sculpture can yield sublime results,” he adds. This custom prototype—a simplified floral frieze for G.P. Schafer Architect—speaks to the medium’s fresh face for the new decade. hyde-park.com

TRÈS SLEEK

With a trend toward digital detoxing at home, it comes as no surprise that the latest arrivals in home automation strive for subtlety and timelessness on appearance. Take Meljac’s Classique Collection, which is newly available stateside in slim 38 mm dimensions— ideal for controls that must fit in tight wall spaces—and shown here in perennially chic light bronze. Bespoke and hand-finished, Meljac’s products are inspired by French designs of the 1930s. meljac.com

After researching vintage and international public libraries, a bibliophilic couple presented Stuart Silk Architects with an unusual ask for their Issaquah, Washington, lake house: a doublestory library. Enamored with the brief, plans were drawn for a dramatic slate-toned sanctuary with dark herringbone floors. To the right of the entryway, a powder-coated steel spiral staircase fabricated by Northwest Stair & Rail, Inc. weaves to the upper level of the library, which hosts more shelves of books, a comfy, tucked-away reading nook, and a secret passageway to the master bedroom. stuartsilk.com

BREATHE EASY

Prior to designer Mary Frances Young’s arrival, a Manhattan apartment’s crowning feature—namely, a plastered brick, barrel-vaulted ceiling—was shrouded by dark building materials and furnishings. Allowing the architectural envelope to take center stage, Young painted the walls in Benjamin Moore’s Paperwhite and paneled the floors in crisp white oak topped with a custom Amadi carpet, setting the stage for her airy take on the 19th-century parlor. “The building is a historical ice storage facility with wide hallways and big spaces. My hope was to happily mix the old building bones with new finishes and furniture,” Young notes. youngandfrances.com

LX_COM31_TheLook_TheReport.indd 233

Few wall treatments rival the grandeur of marble fluting, an architectural tradition passed down and reimagined for millenia. For a modern spin, consider Pinnacle, new from Artistic Tile, which trades classical fluting associations for CNC-cut triangular grooves— an intriguing contrast against the marbles’ natural veining. Available in three stones—Bianco Dolomiti, Nero (above, left) and Calacatta Gold (above, right) marble—the tiles can read bold and graphic or soft and textural, making them a dimensional addition to interiors of any flavor. artistictile.com

If you don’t live in an English country house but pine for the aesthetic, allow Jamb’s line of fine reproduction chimneypieces to add a characterful flourish. Born from founder Will Fisher’s own prolific collection of antique fireplaces, each customizable replica references historic British mantles of the 17th century, and the Georgian and Regency eras. New to the inventory, the Easton bolection (shown) revives a beloved 18th-century design in painterly Breche marble to stunning effect. jamb.co.uk

“If you love it now, you’ll love it later.”

FOR YOUR ATTENTION A blast from the past. Remember the polished brass that was everywhere in the 1980s? According to Yermian, it’s making a comeback. “But in satin,” she says. “Whether for cabinet hardware or lighting fixtures, satin brass is a great way to add warmth and sophistication to any room.”

2

Staycation vibes. Yermian’s go-to recommendation for homeowners is to relocate. “Don’t try to live through the mess of demolition. Take a weekend trip or enjoy a stay somewhere local.” She believes so passionately in this that JY actually offers services to pack and move personal items for its clients.

When Jaki Yermian and her team at JY Design Interiors set out to begin a renovation, they have the homeowner’s happiness top of mind. “Our signature style is all about light and bright spaces that include unexpected textures, patterns and colors, chosen specifically to make the client fall in love with their home again,” Yermian shares. “We also alter the layouts of commonly used areas to promote family time and togetherness. Good design is not just beautiful; it’s functional.” Indeed. After all, isn’t that a driving motivation for any homeowner undergoing renovation? To make things more “them,” but also more fluid? The JY team endeavors to achieve this by starting with the client. “We are heavily focused on them—their priorities, wish list and personal style,” Yermian says. “We conduct extensive interviews, analyze the site and select pieces by hand to bring their vision to life.”

LX_SCAL61_SS_TIR_JYDesignInteriors_mp.indd 1

“Powder rooms are like the jewels of a home,” Yermian says. “They are the perfect place to wow your guests and be bold with your finish selections. Go for that unique wallpaper or faucet that gives you heart eyes, but which may not feel cohesive or functional enough for a more frequently used bathroom.”

For many homeowners pursuing a renovation, the goal is to create spaces that better suit their personal style and needs. Enter, Orange Coast Interior Design. The firm, led by Anita Jacobi, has built a reputation for bespoke environments. “Just as no two people are alike, no two rooms should ever be alike,” Jacobi says. “Our commitment to interpreting each client’s ideas, desires and lifestyle results in interiors that exceed expectations and fall outside the boundaries of any predetermined style or genre.” Still, a few principles guide the OCID team on most every endeavor: the design must feel luxurious, it should have an air of sophistication no matter the aesthetic, and comfort is key. Asked to describe a project that put her company’s work in its best light, Jacobi replies, “I hope they all do. That is my goal.” A look at OCID’s portfolio and repeat clientele proves that she has indeed already achieved just that.

+ O utdoor living environments only gain desirability.

GOING HOME GOES SMART “Innovative technology is becoming more and more of a must for our clients, especially those who are young professionals with fast-paced lifestyles,” Jacobi says. “They want the convenience of starting dinner, or heating up the hot tub, from their car before they get home.”

Among the most popular requests Stuart Dean receives is a desire to make floors better suit the modern style, and the team has found a sustainable way to do it. “We can take a high-gloss marble or granite floor or countertop and dull the stone,” Lynch says. “This gives it a honed finish, which achieves a more modern look. It costs just a fraction of what replacing the stone altogether would, and we are reusing the material, so it’s a win-win.”

CASES FOR UPKEEP + E nvironmental factors play a role. In this coastal climate, where structures are subjected to ocean breezes and saltwater corrosion, Santa Ana winds, UV rays and pollution, the periodic restoration of exterior metal, wood and stone is essential.

When one feels that the overall impression of their home is a dated one, many big renovations might be pursued. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Sometimes, the details one overlooks, like finishes, can make the biggest impact. Just ask James Lynch, the general manager of Stuart Dean in Orange County. “A quality restoration of wood balustrades, stone countertops, metal gates or a crystal chandelier can completely rejuvenate a residence,” he shares. “Unintentional neglect allows these surfaces to deteriorate, and this quickly makes a home look unkept. The process of updating these also seems to reconnect the homeowner with their spaces.” He and his team have seen the latter firsthand, as they specialize in beautifying architectural elements, from bronze and stainless-steel fixtures to natural stone floors and wood furnishings. Like alchemists of old, Stuart Dean’s artisans can transform finishes.

F

or years, homeowner Steven Rauber has pored through shelter magazines for inspiration. “If I see something I like, I cut it out and it goes in my file,” he says, and, with the advent of online sources, his range of visual references has expanded further. By the time he was ready to build a new house for his family on Coronado, he knew exactly what he wanted— something contemporary and clean-lined, intended for informal living. “It was just up my alley,” says architect Bill Bocken, whom Steven commissioned to turn his vision into reality. “The plan was simple and almost Zen-like.” Bocken was up to the challenge and distilled Steven’s vision of easy, modern simplicity into a two-story home that organizes around a rear courtyard. The architect began by retaining two walls of the original structure because they extended into the existing setbacks. “This gave us more of the lot to work with because we could build the house closer to the side and front property lines,” says the architect. Inside, the spaces are comfortable and familyoriented—what Bocken calls “laid-back Zen,” explaining, “You can go from one space into another, but there are no hallways and giant foyers.” Custom pocket doors allow the entire first floor, including the master bedroom and all of the public spaces, to open to the exterior. “This is all about informality and ease of maintenance,” says Bocken, “The rooms communicate with each other across the courtyard and the pool versus how a normal house is set up, where you’re going from one interior space, and then you go through to another.” A wall around the home’s perimeter compensates for its proximity to the street and shields it from passersby. Water features in the entry and in the rear further enhance the feeling of complete privacy and reinforce the Zen factor.

“YOU CAN GO FROM ONE SPACE TO ANOTHER, BUT THERE ARE NO HALLWAYS OR FOYERS.” –BILL BOCKEN

Enriching the structure are handsome finishes and architectural details. A granite floor runs through the first floor (including into the bathrooms, around the pool and out toward the entryway), knitting the home into a cohesive whole. Rather than drywall, Bocken and Steven, who served as the builder, opted for a plaster finish for the walls and ceilings. “They have a life of their own, and, depending on the way the sunlight hits it or the lighting that was built into the house, the walls have a glow to them,” notes Steven. To accentuate the feeling of simplicity, the architect eliminated baseboards and added a slight reveal at the tops of walls to separate them from the ceiling planes. With the home’s framework in place, Bocken pulled designer Irene Kim Coppedge onboard. (The pair first worked together when the architect renovated Coppedge’s own home and ultimately encouraged her to explore a career in design.) “It needed a lot of furniture and the last 10 percent,” she says, alluding to those essential finishing touches. “Floors were picked, walls were done. Some furniture was in, but most of it was not.” While Steven wasn’t afraid of color (such as the orange cushion on the outside banquette), “we kept veering into a monochromatic look,” reports the designer. Consequently, the home is replete with natural tones and textures like unhoned marble and rough-hewn wood for an organic, clean and edited look. “My client had just moved back from Mexico and had either sold or gotten rid of almost everything save a few pieces of furniture and some artwork,” Coppedge explains. “When we started filling the space, we realized that we did not want to buy things just for the sake of having things. It felt freeing to be on this side of under-furnished.” The furnishings reflect Coppedge’s intentional approach, and the importance of each piece is amplified. Together, Coppedge and Steven designed notable pieces for the home, such as the 11-foot-long, stone, knife-edge dining room table. A similar, smaller table had inspired him, but, unable to find exactly what he imagined, he went custom. “There aren’t too many 11-foot tables,” shares Steven, “so if you want an 11-foot table, it’s almost something you have to do yourself.” Surrounding the table are more custom designs: chairs with seats that suspend in leather slings. “They rock bath and forth and make for a really comfortable chair,” he notes. The result of the close collaboration among client, architect and designer is a serene space that reads as generous and welcoming. “We had a fabulous time,” says Coppedge of the experience, “It was just so fun. We were all really happy with the way it turned out.” Steven is especially pleased: “Contemporary is all about the feeling you get walking into spaces, and you don’t necessarily know why they feel good, but they do.” And this house does.

The granite flooring “has a little bit of a blue-green color to it,” says Bocken. “It has just enough movement without being busy.” Opposite: To keep the neutral palette lively, designer Irene Kim Coppedge opted for pieces with texture to them, such as the living area’s velvet RH sofa, the pair of wood and metal tables from Hold it Contemporary Home and the plush carpet from Coles Fine Flooring.

Steven and Coppedge collaborated on the dining table—an 11-foot slab of marble atop a wood base they had fabricated in Mexico. With the stone’s edges beveled to a knife point, it almost seems to disappear. The custom chairs’ seat cushions are centered on a leather sling and are perfect for comfort and conversations that last long into the night.

I

n the hands of Venice-based artist Elizabeth N. Orleans, ceramic, the same material used to make a humble coffee mug or a vase for fresh-picked flowers, can also profoundly transform a physical environment. One of Orleans’ early forays, known as “Internal View,” occurred in 2005 with a site-specific installation for the Museum of Contemporary Art at the Luther Burbank Center of the Arts in Santa Rosa. There, she applied thousands of her white convex ceramic forms to the gallery walls and ceiling to otherworldly effect. “The audience could walk through them; they could touch them. It was an immersive experience,” says the artist. With the encouragement of Ed Moses, the revered West Coast postwar artist, who visited her in the early days at her studio—a former Coca-Cola warehouse where she moved in 2008—she started thinking even bigger. “I was making smaller objects, and he told me to stop wasting my time,” she recalls. “He saw that I had greater potential.” That led to her “Inner Space” series. In that, she took the convex shapes that were protruding from the wall and made them concave (with other shapes to follow). “I realized I could use the space inside of a wall to create an effect like the work is potentially growing within it.” Her ambitious scale is not the only thing that sets Orleans apart from other artists exploring the same medium—it’s also how she reimagines seemingly quotidian forms. “I’m using a traditional material in a traditional manner, in that I’m firing and glazing it,” she explains, “but I’ll take it out of its typical context.” Her ladders are a case in point. She takes a practical tool and negates its functional purpose. “A lot of

LX_LA61_SM_Orleans_4.indd 279

my work is about breaking down those barriers of ceramics being utilitarian and bending the mind of the viewer,” she says. While Orleans tends to focus on a larger format (“I have dreams of making staircases and floors,” she says), the artist operates on other scales too. “When you give someone something small, they can hold it in their hand; it’s almost something to meditate with,” she says. “A small object can have great importance to an individual.” And, those acquainted with Orleans’ abstract, white work may be surprised by some recent pieces, which incorporate bright colors. Again, the artist is playing with expectations: “I am consciously taking things that most people are afraid of like a snake, and putting colorful polka dots on it. It’s still this powerful force,” she says, “yet it changes the way people perceive it.”

Artist Elizabeth N. Orleans works out of a studio in Venice (opposite). Her ceramic sculptures run the gamut from small-scale, whimsical pieces such as polka-dot snakes (above, left) to room-size installations.

CHANGE of PLACE AFTER BIDDING ADIEU TO HANCOCK PARK, A FAMILY DISCOVERS THEIR DREAM HOME WAS THERE ALL ALONG. WRITTEN BY MAILE PINGEL / PHOTOGRAPHY BY SAM FROST

T

hough they were happily living in a Hancock Park craftsman, the unsolicited offer to sell that designer Taylor Jacobson’s clients received was one they couldn’t refuse. The day they were set to move into temporary digs, reports Jacobson, “the husband went to a showing of what would become their ‘forever home.’ They put in an offer and got the house.” But it wasn’t just any house. The 1922 Colonial Revival, only a few blocks away from the craftsman, had belonged to celebrated interior designer Timothy Corrigan, who had lived there as a child and had bought and renovated it for himself some 10 years ago. Stately in style and lovingly tended to by Corrigan, the home needed only a few adaptations to accommodate its new inhabitants. The owners reunited the team who had done their previous residence, Jacobson and architect Elissa Scrafano, to handle the changes. “The house isn’t landmarked, but we kept the exterior envelope the same,” explains Scrafano. “It had great bones.” With the help of Scrafano’s project manager, Debbie Gloria, and general contractor Saul Lopez, the group added French doors to the sun room, enlarged the central stairway’s skylight, installed a kid-safe stair rail, refreshed the master bedroom and bathroom, and cleverly reconfigured two upstairs bedrooms into three of equal size for the children—two girls and a boy. “We had to create the new interior plan of the three rooms considering all of the existing windows—those couldn’t be changed,” says the architect, adding, “It was challenging!”

Designer Taylor Jacobson incorporated several custom pieces into the living room of her clients’ Hancock Park house, including a sofa and a brass coffee table inspired by a midcentury French design. The swivel chair is from Room & Board, and the kilim is from Jamal’s Rug Collection. Above the mantel is a Mineral Workshop piece from Lawson-Fenning.

Natural light fills the central stairwell thanks to a skylight created by architect Elissa Scrafano. There, Jacobson paired a walnut credenza from 1stdibs with a Danish-style oak stool. “We wanted the stair runner to be a focal point here,” says the designer of the two kilims she found at Jon’s Rugs and cleverly had sewn together.

3/19/20 12:39 PM


Further modifications were largely restricted to the surface since all of the historic elements—paneling, doors, moldings, hardware and fireplaces—were retained. “The updates are sensitive to the architecture yet capture the essence of a modern family,” says Jacobson. “Our goal was always to reflect the owners’ playful spirit and to balance that with the more traditional style of the house.” And because she has known the husband and wife for years, there was an overall ease to the project. “I’ve gained their trust,” the designer says. As with their previous residences, the couple wanted color and pattern, and a feeling of casual comfort. Jacobson knew just what to do. She kept “the gorgeous green den and sconces” but put a new spin on the adjoining vestibule, papering it with a design by Hunt Slonem. “I loved the bunny paper in bright yellow to complement the dark green walls of the den,” she says. “We’ve done wallpaper in all of their houses, so they didn’t need convincing—they’re definitely ready for a bit of fun.” In fact, it was the husband who found the exuberantly tropical wallpaper for the powder room—think M.C. Escher meets the Caribbean. For the master bedroom, they chose a floral that’s dynamic but not overwhelming. “The wallpapers convey a sense of whimsy and levity, which was important to the clients,” she adds. In contrast, Jacobson kept transitional spaces white. “That’s a concept I return to again and again,” she says, “a bright, neutral palette for the main artery of a home, with smaller spaces clad in dark wallpaper or paint to create cozy zones.”

“This is a cozy space for the whole family to relax, watch TV and play games,” Jacobson says of the den. She retained the rich wall color and outfitted the space with a leather RH sectional, an ottoman in Christopher Farr Cloth fabric, and an octagonal table from Pat McGann. In the vestibule is a Hunt Slonem for Groundworks wallpaper.

3/19/20 12:39 PM


The homeowners’ tastes hadn’t changed since doing the craftsman, so Jacobson repurposed many furnishings. “The living room pieces are a direct transfer, but I knew we had to have a caramel leather sectional in the den to complement the dark green walls.” She also brought in vintage kilims, using them not only to upholster the sun room’s ottoman but to create the stair runner. “You see it immediately upon entering the house, and it sets the tone for the whole place,” Jacobson says of the latter, and shares, “I had a lot of fun sourcing them. It was a fun puzzle to find two that felt compatible enough to work as one complete stair runner.” In what’s become something of her hallmark, wicker, rattan and cane pieces dot each

room. “I love the warmth and texture they bring, especially as a play against bright colors and patterns,” says the designer. “If they’re vintage, even better.” For Jacobson, working within a traditional architectural framework was a pleasure. “The proportions are classic and so well-conceived,” says the designer. And doing it with longtime clients made the experience even more gratifying. “I’ve worked with them for nine years, and it’s very satisfying to see our time together culminate in a beautiful home that is a reflection of who they are. It’s just a great example of a young, modern family living comfortably and stylishly in a traditional space,” she observes. “I hope many family memories are created here.”

While the kitchen’s layout remains the same, the space received an update with a new Silestone countertop and backsplash from Mission Tile West. Rejuvenation supplied the globe pendant lights and walnut counter stools. The antique Persian runner is from The Rug Affair.

I

t was supposed to be just a kitchen remodel. The owners envisioned new cabinets and counters for the Laguna Beach cottage they had purchased 20 years ago and where they were now raising teenage daughters. Then, they showed the work-in-progress to Dave Frith. “Never invite your architect friend over in the midst of a renovation to ask their opinion,” says Frith, the architect friend in question. His visit led to a ground-up renovation that opened the entire one-story residence to the outdoors and made the home’s rather small footprint feel larger than it is. Designer Tania Cassill was brought on for the beach-chic interiors, and the result is a voluminous, flowing kitchen-dining-living space with views of the pool and ocean beyond. During the design process, Frith, Cassill and the wife met weekly to review ideas. Their client, the architect says, “had strong opinions on colors, finishes and materials, which made it easier to guide the project.” That the residents had also lived in the house for a while helped when devising a new scheme. “They really knew how it worked and how they used it,” he recalls. For example, the family is active; the teen girls are very involved with sports, so schedules are busy, and mealtimes are fast and flexible. Removing the kitchen’s structural wall allowed for an island—a logical solution for casual dining. Measuring 11 feet, it also delineates space in the adjacent, now-open plan great room. To capture previously untapped views of the ocean, a set of stacking glass doors open up to the pool, the ipe and brick deck and landscaping by Zucker

Design Associates. Frith also removed the attic and raised the ceiling up to the existing roof, adding volume. Working with general contractor Ron Martz, Frith made a number of other architectural changes, starting at the entry. The front door, now a Dutch-style number with an oxeye window above, was moved to the street side of the house rather than languishing off a long outdoor breezeway. Enclosing the space allowed for a new entry hall inside that functions as a gallery for the couple’s art collection. The architect also relocated an existing powder room, which in turn freed up space for a larger master bathroom and a walk-in closet. The couple tasked Cassill with the interiors after hearing her name through friends and seeing her work in a magazine. Besides handling the furnishings, the designer worked closely with Frith on the architectural details to ensure they create a spacious feel. She designed kitchen cabinetry in a smoky shade of white oak that stretches nearly to the white-painted ceiling. The effect, she says, draws the eye up and keeps everything open. With the new openness came a desire for lightness. “A lot of their existing furniture was too heavy, so we streamlined things and created a more sophisticated California-casual look,” Cassill reports. In the living area, that translates to the colors represented outside. Shades of sand, sky and water appear in the white oak coffee table, leather club chairs, nubby upholstery and a hemp rug. A subtle palette also sets the focus squarely on the couple’s extensive collection of colorful art. “They purchased pieces that appealed to them and evoked an emotion,” shares the designer, who points to one of their newest finds, a Charlotte Culot piece that hangs behind the dining table. The interiors aren’t all about textures and neutrals, though. Unexpected touches abound. On the kitchen island, there is cement tile with a hand-drawn line motif, and the brass interiors of the pendant fixtures above have a subtle glamour. In the master bathroom, a starburst pattern animates the tile floor. Cassill got a little more playful in the master bedroom with a mix of patterns and textures in blues and whites. She covered the walls with indigo grass cloth, treated the windows with striped Roman shades, and dressed the bed in vivid blue print. About two years after the team began, the renovation was complete, and the beach cottage was finished with updated flat-panel siding, a copper standing-seam roof and, to preserve the cozy feel, new windows and doors in a more traditional style. “Everything has been elevated,” says Cassill. “The stacking doors are almost always open to the outdoors, the surfaces are so pretty, the kids love the den, and their bedrooms and bathrooms are so much nicer. They use everything just as we designed it.”

In the great room of a Laguna Beach cottage, designer Tania Cassill unified the dining and living areas with neutrals of various textures. For comfortable seating, she placed a lowprofile Croft House sofa. She paired a French farm table by Clubcu and dining chairs from Design Within Reach with an Allied Maker light fixture.
