ANTENNAE UP!

I’ve always felt that summer is the season when creative pursuits are ripest to blossom. It may seem counterintuitive that at a time of year when the pace slackens, a colliding of ideas would swell. Yet, it’s precisely the mind-wandering lazy days of summer, when many of us are traveling to far-flung destinations or simply puttering around in the garden on a “Summer Friday,” that the path to inspiration clears. An aha moment can lead you anywhere— hopefully, on a journey of new surroundings and experiences: from a fresh coat of paint on your living room walls to an impromptu dinner party under the stars. Creativity is a spark, best ignited with a large dose of passion, a slice of relaxation and a bit of imagination. This summer, be open to what’s new and refreshing. Hover through these days with your antennae up… sense what is possible. Let this issue, dedicated to exploring international design, be the trigger that kicks it all off.

Global Designer Collaborations that Re-imagine the Bath Space How one feels at home, personal wellness and the enjoyment of well-living are qualities that resonate more than ever today with consumers and have become must-have requirements for architects and designers when creating residential projects. As the place where the daily ritual begins and ends, the bathroom environment needs to evolve to reflect these desires. Progressive brands are thinking “outside the bath” and saying goodbye to mundane bath layouts, typical fixtures and homogenized accessories. As companies look to set themselves apart from the pack, more are reinventing the bath space by infusing it with highend European architecture and design. Rather than stick to their normal team of designers, these companies are seeking out talent known for their work in other fields to create products unlike any seen before. These revelatory collaborations tap into the designers’ unique perspectives, resulting in visionary products that go beyond the typical bathroom fare – and capture the creative spirit of imagination, innovation and art with a refined European edge. Ronbow® is one of these companies creating a difference in bath design. The new Signature Series by Ronbow features over 200 new products and 11 new collections of globally trendsetting bathroom products by nine of the world’s most distinguished artists and designers from six European countries. Known for their contributions to iconic brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vuitton, Audi, Apple and a firm recognized for several exotic Italian automobiles, these designers – each with their own unique sensibility – entrusted their prestigious reputations to Ronbow because of their ability to deliver on their requirements and ideas with innovation, great design and outstanding quality. By working with designers who may see the bathroom space and application in a different way than typical, Ronbow has created next-generation bathroom furniture and complete suites integrating a creative edge, convenient and smart innovations such as LED touch-sensitive mirrors, USB ports and plug outlets, refined accessories and unique material combinations.

VENTO - PININFARINA A 360° design house of international repute and a world-renowned symbol of Italian style, Pininfarina is arguably the most recognized brand in Italian sports car design and has designed in a multitude of other fields. The VENTO collection by Ronbow translates the Pininfarina identity into a variety of versatile and functional bathroom pieces for the design-minded consumer. The VENTO collection, or “wind” collection in Italian, emphasizes an elegant, sleek and innovative sinktop design inspired by perfectly smooth snowdrifts carved by fast, strong winds. Unmistakably, the designer’s mastery of Italian grace, sex appeal and flair are all conveyed in the sinktop.

WATERSPACE - JOAN LAO Based in Barcelona, Spain, Joan Lao is an international design icon recognized for his work in product, interior and architectural design. Since opening his design studio in 1985, he has participated in more than 3,000 interior design projects for clients who appreciate his unique design stamp across furniture, lamps and objects – one of balance and peace. Symbolizing soothing, flowing water, the WATERSPACE collection integrates natural tones, undulating textured wood finishes and a curved design theme for a complete sense of balance and tranquility.

PEBBLE - ORA ITO Ora Ito became globally famous in the ’90s by hijacking symbolic brands such as Apple and NIKE and presenting them with virtual visionary 3D products via media. He is ranked among the top 40 most influential people in the world of design and has collaborated with clients including Heineken, Toyota, Adidas and Pathé, to produce award-winning designs. Inspired by pebbles on the seashore, the PEBBLE collection represents Ito’s idea of “Simplexity” – art to give an object with complex functions a visible simplicity. The glossy white wood finish acts as a canvas to best showcase the unique, organic, “pebble-like” shapes and curves, bringing natural elegance and harmony to the contemporary bath.

Thanks to these visionary designer pairings, Ronbow has recontextualized a new world beyond the bath.

NOCE - MATTEO THUN Designed by revered Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun, who is well-known for his design work with Swatch, and Antonio Rodriquez, the NOCE collection was born to combine urban and contemporary classic styles. The NOCE collection is reminiscent of iconic 1960s vintage style with a modern, functional twist, including LEDs and integrated electrical outlets and USB ports. The suite includes mid-century modern inspired vanities along with optional hutches and more – resulting in a space that is compact but comfortable.

WIDE - PHOENIX DESIGN Phoenix Design is regarded as the leading independent studio worldwide for product and interface design, with clients including Audi, Duravit, Hansgrohe, Samsung and ZEISS. Recognized for its revolutionary design achievements, Phoenix Design has received more than 700 design awards since its foundation in 1987 and has collaborated with Ronbow for two new collections. Named for its vertically “stacked,” asymmetrical appearance, the STACK collection is built from layers of contrasting materials, colors, shapes and orientations – creating a unique, multi-functional living space. Inspired by Bauhaus design theory and style, the WIDE collection celebrates the elegance of pure, clean design and harmonious color combinations.

Welcome to our gorgeous summer issue of Luxe Interiors + Design San Francisco! Once again, we are thrilled and honored to have been part of some exciting events. First, we cohosted a lovely evening with Integrated Resources Group, where we enjoyed presentations by Signum Architecture and Adair Design Group and incredible wine by Chateau Montelena to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Judgment of Paris. It was an inspiring evening for all, and we thank IRG’s Dilmohan and Ameeta Chadha for their warm hospitality at their incredible facility! A few weeks later, Luxe was privileged to work with Zeterre Landscape Architecture to celebrate its 10th anniversary and new location in the SoMa district. Once again, Jarrod Baumann outdid himself with his incredible design aesthetic. The indoor space is simply gorgeous and, combined with the outside garden, was the perfect setting for the most beautiful evening. It was a fun-filled and elegant night, and we were joined by top industry leaders in the Bay Area, all of whom were there to honor Zeterre and celebrate its new location with friends and colleagues. Thank you to everyone for all of your continued support. Enjoy the issue!

CONTRIBUTORS

BEHIND THE SCENES GET TO KNOW A FEW OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS THEY TALK ALL THINGS DESIGN. PRODUCED BY SARAH RAMIREZ

LAURE JOLIET

Photographer / Los Angeles

KIMBERLY OLSON Writer / San Francisco

Most memorable interview: I interviewed a couple who were high school sweethearts and had just built their Miami dream home. The design team created a space that was such a reflection of them, incorporating elements that evoked both their world travels and an indoor-outdoor feel, as well as adding a sound system for parties. The husband even designed some first-of-theirkind, remote-controlled gas lanterns, which are now on the market—a true passion project. What’s your design style? I like classic pieces with a sense of history, but I also appreciate clean lines without too much fussiness—and I’m definitely not someone to shy away from color. I have a tufted-velvet sofa in a lovely lime green. No regrets! Prized possessions: A gorgeous Tiffany-style stained glass lamp that my father made for me and an old doll that belonged to my grandmother, which my parents had restored as a birthday gift. I’d include my cat, Ariel, but she rules the roost, so she might object to being called a possession.

CYNTHIA LYNN Photographer / Chicago What type of design inspires you? I’m really fascinated with late19th-century architecture. However, my own personal taste is very modern. I just love when architects and designers marry the two. For example, when they choose to keep the façade of existing structures but completely modernize the living space, I think that’s just fantastic! Most interesting person you’ve ever met: My husband and I went truffle hunting in Alba, Italy, and met a truffle hunter and his dog, Gigi. He was absolutely fascinating—from the way he interacted with the dog to the history he upheld for the art of truffle hunting. It was as if he were a character written for a book. He also spoke very little English, so his enchanting personality transcended language barriers. It was one of my fondest memories, and I’m so grateful we were able to meet him. If I weren’t a photographer, I would… Run an animal rescue and rehabilitation center. I’m a huge animal person and have such a soft spot for dogs. I do what I can now by fostering, but I would love to do more someday.

JENNIFER SERGENT Writer / Washington, D.C. What do you find most enjoyable about design? I like that it’s so personal, like music. Designers can take the same fabrics and furniture (as musicians do with the same notes and scales) and combine them in limitless ways to express a point of view or mood. I see interior design as transformative for the psyche even more than for aesthetics. Prized possession: A chest my husband commissioned designer and furniture maker Caleb Woodard to make for me. The carved wood on the doors resembles woven ribbons. If money were no object, I would buy… A beach house in Fenwick Island, Delaware. I’ve vacationed there with my family since I was little, and it would be great to own something there.

Favorite Luxe shoot: A penthouse in San Francisco I photographed that had views of the Transamerica building, through the dining room window, and the Golden Gate Bridge, out the living room windows. It was great! What’s intriguing you now in the world of design? I like that there’s so much room these days for innovation and experimentation. The Internet has democratized a lot of the design world, so small firms making thoughtful pieces can thrive alongside huge companies. Most fascinating person you’ve ever met: I sat next to an army doctor on a flight out of Boise who was on his way to Liberia to head up Ebola treatment centers at the peak of the epidemic. He had so much life experience, compassion and courage, as well as epic patience, as I peppered him with questions for two hours. Top three things on your design wish list: I would love to own a heated outdoor bench from Galanter & Jones for chilly California evenings, artwork by Lauren Spencer King, and a custom quilt from Counterpane.

DRAWN TO SCALE

THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND THE BELOVED OUTDOOR FURNITURE BRAND JANUS ET CIE, JANICE FELDMAN DESIGNS HER OWN LEGACY THANKS TO A COUPLE OF MUCH-BUZZED-ABOUT NEW PARTNERSHIPS.

Share your recent decision to join Haworth and the Poltrona Frau Group. Well, it’s been a journey, but I wanted very much to ensure the future of my business: that when I’ve retired, to that great drawing board in the sky, my life’s work will be cared for and regarded with admiration and respect, and that I’ll have created a good, safe place for the people who have helped me get to where I am. Poltrona Frau is a great bastion of luxury furniture, and they’re super-respectful of the autonomy of their individual brands, so I feel honored to be the little sister of their group. They’re going to help us grow globally much quicker than I could have as a standalone company.

Is there anything you’ll miss about going at it alone? Truly, I was never really “alone.” When I was a little girl, my mother always said, “You can do anything.” I’ve lived with that in my head and heart, and she helped and encouraged me every step of the way. The best part about being independent for so long was that I got to prove my mother right. I’ve always made decisions based on my own feelings and my own definitions of what’s good or bad, so it might be challenging at first to be more collaborative and sensitive to other people’s visions, but Dario Rinero, Poltrona’s CEO, is a wonderful leader, and I’m confident we have a lot to learn from each other.

What led you to tap Piero Lissoni to design an upcoming collection for Janus et Cie? I’ve been tracking him for a long time, and I just think everything he does is beautiful. He’s also a total character. Every time I look at Piero, I’m struck by his physicality: I want to draw him. He’s got this long, linear, Giacometti thing happening, and it’s in his drawings and product design, too. I trust the collection will be something very special and that it will be refined and long-lived—something where, 20 or 50 years from now, people will still say they want to buy pieces from the collaboration. How do you keep your creative mojo alive and well? I love to sketch. It helps me think—to take things out of my head and put them down on paper. I started drawing at a very young age, and I was hooked the moment I took my first art class. The instructor made us look at the model and draw without referencing the paper in front of us at all. It was kind of amazing to let your brain communicate directly with your fingers and the pen and to not be burdened by having to check in on yourself. It stuck with me. Today, I often keep a journal or a notepad when I travel; sometimes, I jot down ideas, and other times, I’ll paint a portrait or a chair—anything really. I’m extremely visual, and I edit the world in my own way every day.

GUIDE & SEEK

ANTIQUING IS ALL ABOUT THE THRILL OF THE HUNT, UNEARTHING DÉCOR RICHES THAT TAKE INTERIORS TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH PROVENANCE.

Antique neophytes and aficionados alike know that when it comes to seeking period pieces in Europe, the legendary Paris Flea Market is a beacon of uncovered treasures that is not to be missed. In any given direction of the décor haven, though, there is a bevy of insider-caliber antiques dealers and emporiums silently beckoning from the far corners of southern England, Holland, northern France and Belgium, where private residences (such as Axel Vervoordt’s storied castle) open their doors to welcome guests, by-appointment only, on the hunt for uncommon goods. Here, a collection of antique garden gnomes and neo-Gothic cathedral ceilings are as fair game as British Colonial case goods and Louis-era anything. What was once a sport for design-loving history buffs, and, let’s face it, your grandmother, is now much further reaching. “Antiques are being used more overall, but less in abundance,” notes Toma Clark Haines, CEO and founder of The Antiques Diva & Co., Europe’s largest network of antiques buying tours. “More people are seeking something authentic that their neighbor doesn’t have, including the younger generation. They are looking for experiences as unique as they are and want their homes to tell those stories through key pieces.” Haines, an American expat whose home base is in Berlin, offers a crucial piece of advice no matter how obscure or conventional your purchasing pursuits: “Buy with your heart. You may not know the difference between Louis XV and Louis XVI, but if you buy what you love, you can always learn about it later.” Taking her cue, we invite you to explore our robust list of must-shop European dealers and locales—we dare you to leave empty-handed.

Lorfords Antiques in Tetbury, England, houses 45 dealers in two repurposed World World II aircraft hangars.

RADAR / TROVE

Lorfords Antiques Tetbury, England

Reason to go: For argument’s sake, Lorfords Antiques in Tetbury, England, has the best inventory in all of the U.K. and Europe. According to Haines: “It’s like you’ve taken the Paris Flea Market and picked out the top 10 percent of its decorative items and put them in one unexpected location.” What you’ll find: Owners Toby Lorford and Lesley Ferguson converted two World War II-era aircraft hangars, which currently house the wares of 45 dealers. It’s truly a one-stop shop where time seems to stand still (though quickly ticks away) while visitors scour every alcove and leave feeling like family. Their selection runs the gamut, including standouts like a signed 18th-century Swedish Rococo tragsoffa, late 18th-century French limestone wellhead and a pair of circa-1970s Ingo Maurer spring lamps.

Paul De Grande Snellegem, Belgium

Reason to go: Paul De Grande’s personal collection of over 10,000 antiques is reason enough to make a stop in Snellegem, Belgium. The pieces are effortlessly on display in his own home: a glorious property that greets you with marble sculptures and bronze busts set atop fluted pedestals. Just when you think you’ve seen everything De Grande has to offer on the ground level of his castle, you descend into the basement to uncover a labyrinth of goods. What you’ll find: The discoveries are wide in range: Meandering through the castle unveils cast-iron lion and unicorn andirons from the 19th century mingling fluently with a decorative carousel duck poised beside an unusual 18th-century country French vaisselier, while inlaid Chinese chairs inset with marble plaques in the backrest join 17th-century Flemish tapestries and Dutch carved coconut flasks. And as if the options in De Grande’s residence weren’t sufficient, there are voluminous warehouses a quick car ride away with a dizzying assortment of 16th- to 19th-century cupboards, vitrines, commodes, bureaus and even a life-size patinated zinc camel.

Jean-Philippe Demeyer Knokke-Heist, Belgium Reason to go: Jean-Philippe Demeyer takes obvious chances with his antiques picks, but trust us, it’s all good. The spaces in his moatencircled castle, well, one is more lavish than the next, fashioned with a cocktail of textures,

Clockwise from top: Paul De Grande’s warehouse space is a trove of antique goods. A quiet moment at Bie Baert’s personal home. You’ll find elegant historical pieces next door to the beautiful JVR108 guesthouse in Antwerp. The personality-filled sitting room at Jean-Philippe Demeyer’s Belgian home.

colors and peculiarities that all add up to a somehow melodious visual feast. What you’ll find: It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what will be available at Demeyer’s home on any given weekend, as the designer and antiques enthusiast buys whatever strikes his fancy. Nothing is off-limits, as Demeyer isn’t tied to any of the fantastic specimens he owns; in fact, he welcomes change, and observes pieces coming and going as an opportunity to hunt down more precious décor gems.

Bie Baert Brecht, Belgium

Reason to go: Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll encounter a person and place that make you feel immediately at ease. Bie Baert is that person, and her charming cottage on the outskirts of Antwerp is that place. Like walking

Clockwise from far left: Collected vignettes like this one are plentiful at Monique Relander’s shoppable home. Anouk Beerents’ charming shop in Amsterdam features a bevy of gilded mirrors. Truly unique finds are around every corner at Espace Nord Ouest. An antique clock at Lorfords Antiques.

into an old friend’s home (coffee and tea at the ready), Baert’s magnetic personality and collection will welcome you into her eccentric world, where a pair of distressed wooden penguins and a gilded papier-mâché boot holding an umbrella will leave you wondering why you didn’t already own such quirky things. What you’ll find: Antique garden gnomes, an anatomical model of a worker bee and a menagerie of wooden lay figures somehow seem obvious, filling every nook and cranny of Baert’s home. Your resting place for an espresso and a chat, a 14-foot-long table, made out of one solid piece of oak, is where you survey your surroundings and unexpectedly spot two perfectly worn red-leather Cassina chairs and a cheery bird-adorned plaster chandelier by Jacques Darbaud, circa 1990.

JVR108

Antwerp, Belgium

Reason to go: Antiquing through Belgium could take a few days, and Philip Ver Hoeye and Frederick Aers’ luxury three-bedroom guesthouse in Antwerp is unquestionably an ultrachic place to rest. The best part? Most of the furnishings throughout the fully renovated historical mansion are for sale, as are all the finds next door at their dedicated antiques shop. What you’ll find: The lovely hosts of JVR108 recently acquired all the contents of Belgium’s famous Chateau Rozenhout, which means you can own an iconic piece from one of the great houses of Europe. Other offerings include keenly curated British, Italian, Swedish and Asian antiques that exemplify the couple’s exceptional tastes.

Monique Relander Schoten, Belgium

Reason to go: From the looks of Monique Relander’s home, “edit, edit, edit” is her mantra. An impeccable assortment of antique and vintage furnishings, lighting, tabletop and décor beckon you to roam through every room, taking in the crystal chandeliers, velvet scallop-edged settees, and oil works by Belgian artist Smaël Laurent. What you’ll find: Newly upholstered midcentury Italian armchairs, Swedish loungers and Louis XV-style caned dining chairs abound. A zebra-hide rug might lead your eye into another room where a marble-topped gueridon table with gilded swan adornments holds a Maison Charles pineapple lamp. A peek into her country kitchen, complete with a bifocals-wearing boar head holding guard above the fireplace, may reveal a medley of vintage fruit-shaped ice buckets.

Anouk Beerents Amsterdam, Netherlands

Reason to go: If you’re ever faced with the arduous choice of how to spend an afternoon in Amsterdam, we’re about to make it easy for you: Make a point to see Anouk Beerents’ inconceivably magical mirror shop. Ornate gilded mirror after mirror hung on movable tracks will leave you intoxicated and enamored, as if you walked through the looking glass itself into a wonderland. What you’ll find: Beerents specializes in 18th- and 19th-century French gilded

mirrors, specifically Louis XIV, Régence, Louis XV and Louis XVI, all of which she sources herself. To preserve authenticity, Beerents conservatively restores them with old-world techniques.

Espace Nord Ouest Bondues, France

Reason to go: Two hours north of Paris, Espace Nord Ouest is quickly becoming the European source for antiques dealers in the states that focus on decorative eccentricities, as well as major fashion retailers looking to outfit their stores with unique curiosities. What you’ll find: Seventeen professional dealers over nearly 13,000 square feet offer a downright cool assortment of 17th- to 20th-century pieces, such as industrial and shop furniture, garden décor, architectural salvage, classic French seating and case pieces, and vintage midcentury lighting and furnishings.

A lavish robe shot through with silk. A vessel painstakingly engraved with precious metals. A portrait rendered in watercolor, ink and gold. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s recent exhibition “Court and Cosmos: The Great Age of the Seljuqs” showcases the artistic splendor that flourished during the reign of the Seljuqs, whose rule stretched across Western Asia from the 11th through the 13th centuries. In conjunction with the show, the museum’s store is introducing a line of modern-day heirlooms—ranging from glass objects and jewelry to ceramics and limited-edition rugs— that celebrate the dynamic legacy of the period. “It was evident that the pattern and color inherent in the original art still influences and inspires makers today,” says Susan Noonan, the museum’s general manager of buying and merchandising.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY LISA BINGHAM DEWART

Among those tapped to create the new interpretations of these centuries-old designs was Barbara Barran of Classic Rug Collection in New York. “The colors are gorgeous, and I love the geometry,” Barran says of the region’s art. It wouldn’t be the first time Barran, who has traveled frequently to the Middle East, has transformed work from the area into carpets. “I’ve designed rugs based on Iznik tiles and translated them into 300-knot silk,” she notes. “The Seljuq pieces are from a slightly earlier time period, but there was something about them that was very familiar.” The source materials selected as a jumpingoff point for the rugs immediately resonated with Barran, easily informing her design direction. For example, after seeing the stone-paste mina’i bowl with an abstract pattern from some 900

years ago in the museum’s collection—which served as the foundation for the Mina’i Good Wishes rug (above)—Barran “knew it should be a wool flat weave because it needed to have the earthiness of the original bowl,” adding, “The colors were lovely and the repetition of the pattern had a gorgeous rhythm.” The other source—another mina’i piece featuring a zigzag pattern and gilding—suggested a more polished take. Offered in wool with silk accents, the Mina’i Zigzag rug hews closely to the spirit of its namesake but is imbued with a modern feel. While nearly a millennium separates Barran from the original creators, she still feels a sense of connection. “There’s a liveliness to the art from this period,” Barran explains. “You look at it and find yourself picturing the people who created it. To me, they’re not strangers.”

UPWARDLY MOBILE THE WORLD’S FOREMOST VENUE FOR LUXURY FURNISHINGS AND ACCESSORIES—SALONE DEL MOBILE—CAPTURES THE INHERENT COOL OF THE ITALIAN CITY THAT IT CALLS HOME.

Among Salone del Mobile’s many new introductions were (clockwise from top) Natuzzi’s Dorian line, Flou’s Softwing bed—an update on the company’s famous Nathalie—and Poltrona Frau’s Neri&Hu-designed mirror.

It is, as it turns out, nearly impossible to order an icy glass of water in Milan—room-temperature naturale being completely de rigueur; instead, the cosmopolitan Italian city concerns itself with a different kind of cool. Here, for one week each spring, its fashionable citizens (think plenty of black, linen, leather and painstakingly rolled-up jeans and cigarette pants) join an international conglomerate of visiting design aficionados, trading in their impossibly stylish heels and wingtips for sensible footwear all in the name of design as Salone del Mobile rolls into town. The floors of Salone, the world’s largest furnishings fair, which inhabits the sprawling halls of the Milano Congressi convention center designed by Mario Bellini, are meant to be thoroughly explored, pavement pounded—each corner of its nearly 600,000 square feet filled with furniture and accessories from the world’s preeminent creative minds. And while the talent hails from all over Europe and beyond, there’s a distinctly Italian flavor to the proceedings: a flair for the dramatic and a gravitas provided by the beautifully preserved centuries-old buildings that host the design events within the city, both in the showrooms of established Italian brands and in a bevy of what we affectionately referred to as “palazzo pop-ups” during our visit. Kohler’s showing of its new line of fixtures in collaboration with the French designer Jean-Louis Deniot, for example, takes place at the tony Palazzo Durini di Monza, a 17th-century mansion designed by the Baroque architect Francesco Maria Richini—a juxtaposition of modern chrome and porcelain against ancient stone and Renaissance art. In Bottega Veneta’s dedicated home boutique, too, the venerable fashion house-turned-luxury furniture brand pairs the sleek lines of its übermodern living, dining, office and bedroom

offerings with 18th-century frescoes by artists like Carlo Innocenzo Carlone and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. The result is startling but also, somehow, entirely inevitable thanks to the attention to detail that is paramount in Italian design. And it’s everywhere. For celebrated kitchen brands like Varenna by Poliform and Boffi, each cabinet front and drawer is a work of art—every element carefully veneered, laser-cut and dovetailed together like so many puzzle pieces. At Flou, a variety of new introductions are a pitch-perfect complement to the brand’s longtime bestsellers, like the Nathalie—arguably the industry’s first upholstered bed, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1978, which still looks utterly timeless with its tireless slipcovered reinventions. Longtime power players B&B Italia and Flexform, too, stay nimble by introducing covetable new pieces— like the Do-Maru armchair by Doshi Levien and a brand-new line of seating by Daniel Libeskind, respectively—to a roster of old favorites. On once-barren concrete plots in the middle of the convention center, each brand transforms its booth into a mini home away from home—each one different and dazzling but many embracing a rich, Italian minimalism as a common theme along with another unifier, this one a bit more material (literally): While structured Italian footwear is more or less on hiatus for the week, leather pervades everything else. It’s in the thick straps of the striking, buckled light pendants and impressive Neri&Hu-designed mirror and valet stand at Poltrona Frau; it’s used in a hundred different ways on the supple cushions of Natuzzi and Molteni&C’s many beautiful sofas and chairs; it’s inset into the ultimate desk for movers and shakers at Promemoria; and it’s woven and stitched with remarkable precision across a variety of Hermès home offerings. For all its eye candy and endless inspiration, the true beauty of Salone is in the escape it provides: Here, there are a multitude of worlds rapidly constructed, but with great care, that you can imagine yourself in, with thousands of new products with which to redesign the perfect room in your mind, and not a single person to pass judgment. They’re design lovers, after all, and they’re likely doing the exact same thing, and we’re happy to toast to that—the water may be warm, but the Prosecco is ice cold.

WHO: Cameron Marks is a much-loved chain of lifestyle shops in Santa Cruz with a minimalist take on California’s quintessential style. Thanks to the eye of resident photographer, Keeley McGowan, and the effortlessly cool influence of the brand’s Australian cofounder, Vanessa Ambrose, the shop’s Instagram is both dreamy and playful. WHAT: Expect to find unique compositions of the shop’s covetable collections. No matter if it is a new line of denim or a found furniture piece, each photo seems thoughtful and well-styled.

KEN FULK

Interior designer, event planner and creative maestro Ken Fulk, known for his occasionally irreverent, always stylish interiors and unparalleled fashion sense, has a lot to fête as of late: His muchanticipated book, Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World, comes out in the fall, and he is simultaneously serving as lead designer and creative director of The Harrison, a buzzy luxury condominium project in SoMa. Here, the dapper designer shares what’s on his radar in San Francisco this season. kenfulk.com What’s intriguing you in design at the moment? The pendulum has begun to swing back to a greater love for the decorative arts and craftsmanship. Many of the city’s grand homes have changed hands, with new owners stepping up and becoming stewards to them, spending the vast sums it takes to maintain and restore them. Must-sees for design lovers: The restored lobby at the Pacific Telephone Building at 140 New Montgomery is a breathtaking Art Deco jewel. Another notable destination is the city’s Conservatory of Flowers, the oldest existing public conservatory in the western hemisphere. Also, the Herzog & de Meuron-designed de Young Museum is essential. 108 / LUXESOURCE.COM

IN THEIR WORDS: “Our Instagram is all about what we’re currently excited about. We’re having fun developing our own signature style. Curating an Instagram feed is similar in a lot of ways to how we curate the shop!”

BLUEPRINT UBER

Neighborhoods of note: Dogpatch and Hayes Valley. Both are at the epicenter of a new food and retail scene. Small local vendors give each an only-in-San Francisco quality. For the artistically inclined: Head to the Minnesota Street Project. Comprised of three warehouse buildings, it provides affordable spaces for artists, galleries and nonprofit arts organizations. It’s the face of sustainable contemporary art. Ones to watch: Emily Holt is opening her new retail concept, Hero Shop, soon. Also, Lyle Owerko and his incredible photography have relocated from New York to San Francisco. We are looking forward to a show of his work in our Peep Show gallery this fall.

Ride-hailing company Uber has dropped a pin for its new home in the Mission Bay neighborhood. Slated for completion in 2019, the project will consist of an 11-story building and an adjoining six-story structure, connected by a series of glass-and-steel bridges. SHoP Architects and Assembly Design Studio teamed up to imagine the headquarters, which will be constructed from the ground up— a rarity for the dense city. “We wanted to create an experience that reflects the landscape, energy and climate of San Francisco itself,” says SHoP’s Associate Principal Omar Toro-Vaca. The project will encourage pedestrian traffic and retail endeavors and includes plans for streetscape and recreational improvements. shoparc.com; assemblydesignstudio.com WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

ONERICA A TANOV ROLL

This past spring, a swanky watering hole called Wildhawk opened—in the location of the former Lexington Club— to the delight of locals in the heart of the Mission District. Named in honor of its free-spirited muse Lola Montez, a famous courtesan and activist who came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush in the mid-1800s, the bar oozes eccentricity and old-school glamour. “The design is at once modern and historic,” notes San Francisco-based designer Jay Jeffers, who was tasked with its interior spaces. Palecek barstools wrapped in animal-printed Moore & Giles leather belly up to the bar, while leather sofas and upholstered seating from Arteriors are arranged in cozy vignettes on the original patinaed hardwood floors. The color palette is comprised of dark greens and a classic combination of black and white. Jeffers introduced unexpected twists on traditional design elements to the space; for example, a floral wallcovering, designed by Michael Angove for Surface View, recalls chinoiserie. When envisioning the design, Jeffers kept one thought in mind, “What would Lola want today?” And in the end, he concludes, “I think she would be proud.” wildhawksf.com

When did you open? I opened up shop at 853 Valencia St. on Black Friday in 2014. Tell us about your offerings. At any given time, you’ll find hand-thrown porcelain plates, bowls, mugs, cups, planters and porcelain jewelry here. My shop is 95% my work; although, I will sometimes display handcrafted, golden ceramic booty made by Meegan Barnes. I occasionally have pop-up shops, too, inviting another artist to sell with me for a weekend. Describe your (self-proclaimed) smallest shop in San Francisco. The tiny space idea came from growing up in Puebla, Mexico, where these types of spaces are more common. My shop is in the best location—on Valencia Street. That’s why I knew it would be a success. People love buying art straight from the artist, and they respect that I am out there producing and selling my work. As for its design, I wanted to enhance the white of my porcelains. I think the combination of wood and ceramic is classic. melriceceramica.com 110 / LUXESOURCE.COM

Nature has always been an inspiration for Bay Area clothing and homewares designer Erica Tanov. Her eponymous brand, complete with cult following, is known for its ethereal patterns, subtle color palettes and lived-in aesthetic. Entering the scene with a small collection of seamed slips and chemises nearly 25 years ago, Tanov’s boho sensibilities have extended to women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, jewelry, apothecary items, home goods and fabric. This summer, in what she calls a “natural evolution” of her dreamy range, the designer is introducing a line of wallpaper. The hand silk-screen-printed range of papers boasts two patterns, Fern and Tendril. Each design is an elegant interpretation of the late-morning shadows that cross Tanov’s garden patio. Fern (right) is characterized by subdued silhouettes of individual fronds, while Tendril seems to vibrate with slender, never-ending spirals. Available in six colorways, the papers will be stocked at the designer’s outposts in Berkeley and Larkspur and on her website. ericatanov.com

Nestled on designer-friendly Sacramento Street in Presidio Heights sits a San Francisco design mainstay, Anyon Atelier. “Our focus is representing independent artists and artisans, and sourcing unique vintage items,” says Lindsay Brier, founder of the atelier and its adjoining full-service residential and commercial interior design firm. “We’re inspired by the coastal California lifestyle and landscape, as well as contemporary, cosmopolitan cities like San Francisco and New York.” Brier was raised with an appreciation for wellmade and time-tested décor, citing memories of trailing her mother around her antiques shop in Russian Hill. Now, she sits at the helm of Anyon, which carries an enviable, everrotating selection of goods from designers like Rebecca Atwood, Peter Sheldon and Martha Sturdy, as well as artists like French photographer César Ancelle Hansen and painter Shauna Pickering. Brier, a Bay Area native, can’t imagine setting up shop anywhere else. “There is an exciting mix of styles and so much energy surrounding the tech, design, art and architecture communities in San Francisco,” she says. Here, the expert design purveyor shares her favorite spots to frequent. anyondesign.com

10 a.m. Take a stroll a few blocks north and you’ll see the famed Lyon Street steps. Luckily, you’ll approach them from the top in this direction, and not from the bottom! On a clear day, you can get a beautiful view of the Bay. 10:30 a.m. You’ll find you’re now just a few blocks from Sacramento Street shopping. Start at Sacramento and Broderick, and work your way up the next six blocks. Anyon is between Walnut 112 / LUXESOURCE.COM

and Laurel, just seconds away from some of our perennial favorites, such as March, Hudson Grace, The Future Perfect, Jessie Black and St. Frank. 1 p.m. After a morning of walking, head over to Fillmore Street and snag a window seat at Jane. With its inventive salads and graphic black-and-white interior, it’s the perfect place to refuel. 2 p.m. Just as Sacramento Street is an important interiors destination, Fillmore Street is the place for all of our fashion favorites. Do some window-shopping at Alice and Olivia, and be sure to stop into Freda Salvador. This local shop makes beautiful leather shoes that are also super comfortable.

3 p.m. Take a leisurely detour downtown to visit the newly reopened and much-anticipated San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. After being closed for three years, this will be the city’s favorite place for getting inspiration for the foreseeable future. The renovation now houses even more interior gallery space than the MoMA in New York. 7 p.m. Finish your day with dinner at the wonderful AQ on Mission. The chef’s tasting menu goes to great lengths to highlight the delicious and inventive seasonal nature of California cuisine.

Using a clever blend of materials and a brilliant palette of pale pinks and blues, fashion journalist-turned-hotelier Vanessa Scoffier takes a casual yet chic approach to traditional French design with Hotel Henriette. Located on a quintessentially European cobblestone street in the 13th Arrondissement, the hotel boasts ample boutique qualities and unexpected details. Here, we take our lead from the hotel’s private and public spaces— outfitted with plush, organic textiles and antique metalwork throughout—for a collection of items, like luxe linens from Cultiver in dreamy, subdued hues and a delicate brass bowl by Blackman Cruz, that capture the essence of cool thanks to a little je ne sais quoi.

Inspired by local island life and traditional Dominican Colonial architecture, interior designer Celerie Kemble collaborated with historic preservationist Elric Endersby to create the idyllic retreat of Playa Grande Beach Club. A blend of vintage and contemporary elements, this tropical oasis showcases a palette of vibrant hues paired with neutral tones of raw, natural materials. In a style akin to the hotel’s breezy and native design, Sebastian Herkner’s poolside rocking chair for Dedon—made of a solid-teak frame—uses organic elements in a similar way, with laid-back sophistication in mind. So kick back, relax and style your own seasonal seaside hideaway.

PARADISE FOUND SALA AYUTTHAYA: AYUTTHAYA, THAILAND

10

Renowned for its opulent temples and lavish sacred spaces, Thailand takes great pride in its legendary history of architecture and design. Located directly across from the Wat Phutthai Sawan temple, built in 1353 A.D. by the first monarch of the area, Sala Ayutthaya was conceived with both its namesake’s long architectural past in mind and a focus on reinvented minimalist Thai design. Visionaries Siriyot Chaiamnuay and Arisara Chaktranon of architectural firm Onion embraced a purist palette and pale pops of serene colors—not unlike Cle Tile’s Vintage Rose accents and Louise Gray’s Quilt No. 3. shown here—and commissioned local talent to help construct the tranquil refuge in the heart of this storied city.

LIFESTYLE BLOGGER, MARKETING CONSULTANT & PRODUCT DESIGNER WITANDDELIGHT.COM

At first sight: Christophe Delcourt’s piece is inspired by nature but executed in a distinctly modern way. France is all about beauty and tradition: The country has a vast design history that creatives, especially in the culinary and furniture worlds, must honor and interpret. But above all… You can always count on a French designer to revel in beauty. A statement piece… Stands out on its own, has a story and evokes conversation. To me, this entire piece reads as a sculpture: The table represents a great balance of form and function. It’s hard to achieve that balance, but you don’t get there without taking a risk. Lasting impression: Angular, dynamic, artistic, structural, modern.


PALME D’OR

THE PIECE: Zer Coffee Table THE DESIGNER: Christophe Delcourt MADE IN: France FIND IT: avenue-road.com THE INSPIRATION: Using graphic zebrano wood veneer as his medium of choice, designer Christophe Delcourt employs sculptural form to successfully reimagine the art of marquetry—breathing new life into a classic technique.

NATURAL SELECTION THE PIECE: Hauri Candleholders and Lava Trays and Candleholder THE DESIGNERS: Caterina Moretti and Ana Saldaña MADE IN: Mexico FIND IT: peca.com.mx THE INSPIRATION: The designers focused their creative lens on raw materials found in nature—think volcanic rock and black-and-white marble—when creating these objets d’art, proving that texture and form are true works of art unto themselves.

SARAH & SHERMAN SAMUEL

DESIGNER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR SARAHSHERMANSAMUEL.COM

At first sight: I’m struck by Peca’s clever and restrained use of natural materials. It’s such an artful mélange of brass, stone and marble. The juxtapositions within the composition… Are alluring and calming all at once; the soft textiles of the background beautifully foil the natural, hard materials used for the tray and candleholders. I’d love to see… The candleholders reimagined as a giant abacus. When scouting product for my clients… These are the types of pieces I like to introduce. It’s so important to be aware of the artisanal hand behind the designs you bring into someone’s home. Boundaries in design… Exist to be pushed: No risk, no reward. Lasting impression: Balanced, sculptural, geometric, artful, bold.


STRING THEORY THE PIECE: Husk Medium-High Chair THE DESIGNER: Marc Thorpe MADE IN: Italy FIND IT: moroso.it THE INSPIRATION: The contoured lines of these handwoven polyethylene yarns result in a playful seating dialogue sure to keep potential perchers charmed and intrigued.

At first sight: Naturally, I love the riot of bold, carnival colors Marc Thorpe used with this piece, which feels perfectly timed for this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. And as a champion of color… I’m always encouraging my clients and readers to embrace hue in all forms, from soft shades to zingy brights. I’m drawn to Italian design… Because artists combine native craftsmanship with industrial processing techniques, manifesting in products that reflect inspirations across the world stage. A statement piece… Is that hero object that captures the eye and provides a resting point. Lasting impression: Proud, witty, fierce, bold, sexy.

IN THE MIX THE PIECE: Full Moon Collection THE DESIGNER: Chaehoon Moon MADE IN: Korea FIND IT: damooncollection.com THE INSPIRATION: Product designer Chaehoon Moon is fearless when it comes to her material choices, assembling stunning handcrafted yuhgee tableware (borne from a combination of copper and tin) with a traditional ott-chil (textured Korean lacquer) finish. But it’s the pieces’ subtle collision of these tangibles that proves to be so unforgettable.

MAT SANDERS

At first sight: Chaehoon Moon’s collection has a galactic elegance. To me, the pieces represent what’s next in design: total understated futurism. Korean design… As seen here, practices beautiful restraint and simplicity, which is much harder than it looks. Handmade is the truest luxury: Handcrafted using new materials and traditional inspiration, these pieces have a magnetic energy you can’t deny. The cast palm shadows and velvet background… Remind me of dreamy, high-end entertaining on the West Coast. I could imagine myself… Dishing out fresh crudités in these fab, modern vessels. Lasting impression: Refined, clean, lustrous, minimal, gentle.

At first sight: We love that Gabriel Scott’s bench mixes modern with traditional design, and we also go crazy for anything with a good rivet. Provenance and history are key for us: We are storytellers, and the pieces that we present to our clients should have an amazing tale to tell. The Madcaps love a great velvet: It’s like Auntie Mame went to Venice before heading to Morocco for heaps of cocktails. A statement piece… Can serve as a conversation starter when you meet someone at a party and have no idea what to talk about. We’d like to see this bench… In a hallway under a blowsy floral wallpaper. Lasting impression: Riveted, gilt, versatile, chic, edgy.

PALOMA CONTRERAS INTERIOR DESIGNER PALOMACONTRERAS.COM

At first sight: Rachel Horn’s tables are a fresh update on a classic design; she pulls classic shapes, design and motifs and seamlessly updates them with a modern point of view. Mexico is home to some of the most incredible artisans: Metalwork is the country’s specialty, and the connection between the age-old technique and Rachel’s designs is very apparent. Nothing worth having comes easily: The best moments in design happen beyond our comfort zones. The simple silhouette of these tables takes on a whole new level of interest through the designer’s use of rough-hewn texture on the legs. The blush velvet hues and moody shadows of the composition read as lush and vibrant… And I am instantly transported to a beautiful courtyard in San Miguel de Allende. Lasting impression: Classic, refined, fresh, polished, textural.

BALDWIN HARDWARE 2

Think about your design aesthetic and finishes—what kind of hardware you will need. Design around that.

1

It’s not as bold as one might think to compare fashion to decorative hardware. It enhances, adorns and beautifies while fulfilling utilitarian needs—and it is every bit subject to fads and design movements. Baldwin Hardware of Lake Forest, California, is a pioneer in the realm of hardware, crafting art-worthy, design-forward pieces that successfully defy trends. “We prefer to think of Baldwin as a fashion statement for the home: part of your design aesthetic,” says Baldwin Hardware Senior Brand Manager PJ Rosch. “Baldwin is couture for the door.” Celebrating its 70th year as an industry leader, Baldwin Hardware distinguishes itself from its contemporaries with an unwavering dedication to quality materials and design, not to mention seemingly infinite styles and finishes from which to choose. “We love creating inspirational design through the depth and breadth of our products and finishes,” Rosch says. Designers for the decorative hardware firm are embracing midcentury modern aesthetics and are also seeing a greater demand for black metals. “We are loving midcentury modern right now. It’s a great nod to the past, but with an updated style,” she says. “Also, black metals are all the rage now, but brass and warm, gold tones continue to gain popularity.”

A quick and chic kitchen update: New cabinet knobs and pulls are an easy, cost-effective way to refresh a kitchen. The new bathroom: Means having more living space. Chairs, flowers and a homey vibe are in—countertop clutter is out. Trends and you: Don’t worry about trends. Be sure to infuse your own personal style into your space and make it truly yours. A new era of opulence: 2016 is about luxury and options. People want well-crafted, timeless pieces that are high quality, complemented by artisanal pieces.

DACOR

Q+A WITH KITCHEN MARKETEERS CHUCK HUEBNER AND MICHAEL WEST OF DACOR

Founded in 1965, Dacor is a leading manufacturer of ultra-premium kitchen appliances. Designed and built in California, Dacor’s cooking appliances integrate function, technology and style to create intuitive products that reflect the lifestyle and needs of the passionate home chef. Dacor is also the first and only kitchen appliance brand to be tested and recommended by the master chefs of Le Cordon Bleu. Dacor manufactures a full suite of award-winning appliances, including ranges, cooktops, wall ovens, refrigeration, ventilation and wine preservation. Family-owned for more than 50 years, the company is responsible for many of the innovations that have improved the way people cook in the modern kitchen. Dacor created the 30-inch wall oven category, was the first to integrate an Android™powered tablet in ranges and ovens for the connected kitchen, and made the first continuous platform grates on cooktops, among other advances.

What are the top style and material trends for 2016? In kitchen appliances, stainless steel remains the most popular finish. Designers are gravitating toward color to offer their clients something different and fresh. Some are using color to solve problems, such as matching new appliances to established kitchen color schemes they want to keep. What should every well-designed kitchen have? Appliances placed to keep eye contact with your family or guests make for a better interactive experience. Placing a cooktop in the kitchen island with a motorized downdraft is a great way to not have your back to them, as is common with the conventional placement of ranges/cooktops against a wall. What new innovations should consumers keep an eye out for? Connected kitchen appliances that add freedom to your lifestyle, such as the capability to preheat your oven remotely using your phone, and text you when your food is ready.

EGGERSMANN USA

Ergonomics play a large role in the design of a high-end kitchen, and it is highly suggested that most cabinetry pull out or come toward you instead of looking out of reach.

Equal parts form and function, Eggersmann’s cabinetry delivers beautiful and useful organizational solutions to the modern home dweller. The company, drawing from more than 100 years of innovation, trial and achievement, is a driving force behind the concealed kitchen—a design movement that gives way to gallery-like spaces in the kitchen, and the cabinetry is art. Using earthborn, organic materials such as raw wood and concrete, Eggersmann’s ultra sleek and clean-lined cabinetry reimagines modernity in a warm and inviting fashion. “We start with the most intrinsically raw materials available, including woods, metals and glass,” shares Eggersmann USA CEO Michael Soltoff. “With these materials used in various textures, colors and sheens, we constantly push the limits of the basic core components.” The Eggersmann design foundation is built on key Bauhaus architectural characteristics—flat, smooth surfaces, cubic shapes, neutral colors and open floor plans (fundamentally pure and resounding in utility)—and is distinguished by technological feats in cabinetry composition and ergonomics, such as its electric mechanisms, custom storage, handle integration and exotic veneers. “The wide availability of parts, components, hardware and materials across the world has caused a demand and push for incredible leaps and bounds in innovation of product,” Soltoff says. “As electronic technology becomes more compact and lightweight, we see an increase in automation in our products, and it has become more of an integrated component of lifestyle, rather than just a cabinet or case good.”

1. Gray matte lacquer and veneer fineline grigio with silver moon quartzite worktop. 2. White and dark gray matte laminate and 11mm Silvertouch worktop with a custom finish WALL track system. 3. White matte laminate with oak rough-sawn and Corian worktop.

EGGERSMANN ESSENTIALS Tangible Intelligence: “Every kitchen requires functional storage space that not only is accessible, but is clever in function,” Soltoff says. “Examples include specialized pantry systems, specialty fitting dishwashers, inserts and utensil dividers.” Ubiquitous Materials, Reborn: Looking ahead, Eggersmann’s work will reveal innovative uses of organic materials, such as concretes and raw wood, as well as industrial finishes, such as stainless steel, copper, bronze and aluminum. Continuity Control: “It is important to have a specific style carried throughout the space,” Soltoff asserts. “Many kitchens are a part of and centered around the living space of the home. This doesn’t mean that the kitchen must match the style of furniture, interior trim and construction. Often, our kitchens are shown as a juxtaposition or unexpected center of the home.”

HUBBARDTON FORGE In the quest to discover fresh aesthetics and innovative designs in interior lighting, we turn to Hubbardton Forge for insight. One of the most respected brands in the lighting industry, Vermont-based Hubbardton Forge was founded upon the principles of authenticity and genuineness, giving way to handcrafted, art-worthy lighting. David Kitts, Hubbardton Forge’s Director of Design, reveals what’s in store for high-end light fixture design. “Industrial and steampunk styles are definitely on trend,” he says. “They intersect in interesting ways in their embrace of strong, imaginative design and application. Our Otto collection is a great example of that.” Kitts also notes the movement toward large statement pieces that are designed in a way where “the metal ‘glows’ through the use of LED light guide platforms and shaped elements.”

When beginning a project, remember your lighting is the first thing that guests will notice as they enter a room.

WORLD-CLASS EXPERTISE FROM HUBBARDTON FORGE Every well-designed kitchen should have: Layered lighting, such as multiple mini-pendants, a chandelier or wall sconces. Every well-designed bathroom should have: Color-accurate lighting. Materials + finishes of note: A new gloss-white finish; mixed metals; interesting glass elements used in surprising ways. LED driven: Hubbardton Forge has found ways to incorporate LED technology into the design, not just build LED fixtures. Advice for the homeowner: Think about the whole project; how one piece will interact with another. Don’t leave the lighting design for last.

1. The Louvre chose LED lighting for the Mona Lisa. The Glide LED bath bar offers a contemporary feel and is perfect for a large vanity space. 2.

PARIS CERAMICS

Q+A WITH RICHARD ABBOTT OF PARIS CERAMICS

Paris Ceramics blends time-honored materials and craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology to create rare products for floors, walls, ceilings, fireplaces and other objects of art. “We have a lot of new CAD machinery that enhances what you can do in terms of profiles patterns, etc.,” explains the firm’s manager Richard Abbott. “However, you still need to do finishing by hand to give the end result a bespoke quality.” Paris Ceramics has a special relationship with time, design and craftsmanship: No other company has invested in the technology and craftsmen to reclaim and preserve antique objects and flooring back to life. The juxtaposition of the world’s oldest objects preserved by the newest laser-cutting technology is the hallmark of Paris Ceramics. Only Paris Ceramics employs in-house artisans in the United States to ensure a near-flawless finish, size and product. As for new trends in the realm of flooring, Abbott cites traditional and new patterns, an increase in the use of various shades of blue and the rise of porcelain. “We try not to copy, but to be innovative,” Abbott says.

What is inspiring you now? New and traditional patterns and textures in stone and wood. How do you choose materials for each collection? We base selection on what we like, and it has to be timeless. Is it important to have a cohesive style throughout a kitchen or bathroom? Yes, but don’t forget the whimsical and fun. Describe the philosophy behind your firm. Paris Ceramics is the premier resource for timeless flooring material with soul.

ZEPHYR VENTILATION

The range hood has become the centerpiece of the kitchen and often sets the tone for the kitchen design.

The kitchen has evolved from a utilitarian workspace to a familial gathering and entertaining central core of a home. The focal point of many of today’s most elegant and cutting-edge kitchens is the range hood, which was also born from a purely functional perspective. Zephyr Ventilation, based in Alameda, California, is changing this paradigm by blending high-caliber utility with high-quality aesthetics. “We have elevated the hood to its rightful place, with a focus on design, innovation and technology,” shares the company’s president Luke Siow. “Since the launch of our first hoods in 1997, we have remained true to our vision of delivering the unexpected: by deliberately seeking to change the marketplace.” The sophisticated hoods reveal remarkable technological feats within the kitchen, such as its DCBL Suppression System®, the industry’s first range hood motor powered by direct current (DC) energy (an evolutionary step from the traditional AC-powered range hood) and the newly unveiled Lucé with ICON Touch® controls, which integrate into the hood’s stainless steel canopy and control the hood’s LED lights in cloud white, deep blue and amber colors.

1. Lucé Island features industry-first, fully integrated touch controls, three-color accent lighting and a modern aesthetic. 2. Wave is a vertical-style hood with Dual Capture Zones to improve capture performance and ensure a well-ventilated kitchen. 3. Lux Island features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling above the island cooktop. 1

Q+A WITH LUKE SIOW, PRESIDENT OF ZEPHYR VENTILATION What are the top style and material trends for 2016? We are seeing a trend toward mixed materials in kitchen ventilation that incorporate ceramic, mixed metallics and glass. Colored and LED lighting are also trends we are noticing in ventilation as well as other kitchen appliances. What new innovations should consumers keep an eye out for? The Wave hood features Dual Capture Zones that collect contaminates through two points to ensure a smokeand debris-free kitchen. Lux Island features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling and Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter of the hood. Is it important to have a cohesive style throughout a kitchen? A kitchen can have a cohesive style while still communicating the homeowner’s personality and individuality. We’re seeing a lot more color, pattern and customized appliances in the kitchen that truly reflect the style of the homeowner.

FROM SOPHISTICATED STAYS TO ZEN-LIKE RETREATS, HOTELS AND RESORTS HAVE MASTERED THE ART OF MOOD-SETTING STYLE AND RISK-TAKING DESIGN IN THE KITCHEN AND BATH. WRITTEN BY MARISA SPYKER

162 / LUXESOURCE.COM

When it comes right down to it, designers often have one overarching mission: to make the home feel like a perpetual retreat. The two most-frequented rooms in the home are no exception. Baths often transform into visions of spa-like bliss and kitchens become clean, open-plan breaths of fresh air. So, when seeking aesthetic inspiration, it’s only natural to turn to the very experts of escapist style: the hospitality industry. From modernist urban highrises to secluded South American estancias, the world’s most beautiful hotels and resorts have mastered the art of maximizing views, inspiring relaxation and pushing the boundaries of great design (a room bathed almost entirely in sleek, glossy wood, for example). Here, we celebrate five-star style in all its glory, alongside products that make vacation-like living a breeze to adopt at home.

Were it not for the ocean views, one would think the Rococo-inspired kitchen and bath shown on these pages were straight out of an estate in Paris. Houston-based architect Mihai Angelescu and designer Rodica Mirea captured a look of timeless elegance when imagining this villa located on the private Bahamian island resort of Over Yonder Cay.

MANDARIN ORIENTAL BARCELONA, SPAIN

DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: Design maven Patricia Urquiola employed her own wall-mounted chrome fixtures from her collection for Axor in the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona’s Penthouse Suite bath. Glossy ceramic stools from Rosenthal mirror the smooth surfaces of the vanity top and tub. WHY WE LOVE IT: Leave it to Urquiola to strike just the right balance of serene and sophisticated. The metallic vanity and wall of beveled-edge mirrors infuse an element of glam in the space, while the light wooden floors and tub keep it feeling soft and warm. mandarinoriental.com

AMAN

DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: The brainchild of Singapore-based architect Kerry Hill, this spacious suite bathroom is composed almost entirely of traditional Japanese Kakou Gan granite, allowing the pièce de résistance—a deep Japanese furo soaking tub—to take center stage. WHY WE LOVE IT: High above the urban bustle, the bathroom’s monochromatic gray stone décor evokes an air of simplicity that’s symbolic of Japanese culture. The space also allows the spectacular views of Tokyo and, on clear days, Mt. Fuji, to shine through floor-to-ceiling windows. aman.com

ESTANCIA VIK

JOSE IGNACIO, URUGUAY DESIGN FEATURES OF NOTE: When renowned Norwegian art collectors and hoteliers Alex and Carrie Vik sought to create a 12-suite luxury boutique hotel in the middle of Uruguayan farmland, their mission was to make as little of an environmental impact as possible (think solar panels, wind and geothermal energy, a water-recycling system). The bath in the artist-designed master suite is no exception: The entire room, including the walls, door, sink and tub, is enveloped in richly veined wood locally sourced from jacaranda trees. WHY WE LOVE IT: The dark wood-clad bath pays homage to the retreat’s sprawling 4,000 acres of countryside, but sleek details like the sculptural lines of the tub, minimalist steel fixtures and recessed lighting give the space a decidedly modern feel. vikretreats.com 164 / LUXESOURCE.COM

ESCAPE ARTIST

JEFFREY WILKES Resort whisperer Jeffrey Wilkes is the creative mind behind some of the most Zen-inspiring retreats in South Asia and beyond. At the Ritz-Carlton Mandapa in Ubud, Bali, he channels the lush outdoors with rustic materials and a natural palette. designwilkes.com 166 / LUXESOURCE.COM

What was your design inspiration for this space? When we created the bathrooms for the rooms and suites at Mandapa, it was our desire to have them act as extensions of the rooms. It’s a resort, and the experience of the bath, and the relaxation one feels from the experience, is paramount. It was important to create a space where someone would take the time to linger and enjoy a soak in the tub while looking out at the view.

Tell us about the mélange of materials. Touch is always a very important aspect of a room, along with the visual component. Here, patterned fretwork, weathered timbers and leather-finished marble stone all work in combination to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Woven ceiling panels are reminiscent of local Alang-alang (thatched) roofs. We also commissioned vanity sinks carved from teak wood with small decorative patterns around them.

How is the natural environment reflected? The earthy palette of chocolate brown, gold and bronze that we introduced to these spaces is taken in large part from the landscape and rivers that surround the property. We hung a pair of round mirrors over the vanity and flanked them with uneven water drop glass lights. It helps create the illusion that you’ve just set up camp in the forest, like you’re part of the evolving landscape.

Perhaps only second in line to what constitutes a really great hotel room (behind, of course, a drool-worthy bed) are insanely comfortable bath towels. Those of the Turkish variety are often considered the crème de la crème thanks to premium cotton fibers that are known for quick-drying qualities and an uncanny ability to become even softer after washing.

BALANCED EQUATION THE DESIGN TEAM: Interior Design / Redmond Aldrich Design Architecture / Amato Architecture Landscape Architecture / Michael Callan Landscape Architect, and Visions Landscaping and Design Inc. 174 / LUXESOURCE.COM

THE CHALLENGE: Transform the cramped quarters of a 1950s Colonial into a family-friendly retreat for a Hillsborough couple. “We have young kids, but I still wanted our house to be beautiful,” says owner Sarah Evars, a design enthusiast who isn’t afraid to take creative risks with textiles and patterns. “She rates high on the fearless scale for sure,” says designer Chloe Redmond Warner. THE WORK: Architect Rebecca Ivans Amato collaborated with the owners to expand and remodel the house, featuring a newly enlarged kitchen. There, Warner swooped in to craft a colorful breakfast area that

combines naturally forgiving patterns and a mix of custom and retail pieces. A gallery wall including the children’s artwork is displayed above a built-in banquette. The Eero Saarinen table is from Knoll, and the white-lacquered chairs are by Bungalow 5. THE RESULT: “The house is chic yet conducive for family life,” says Warner, who was able to achieve that balance thanks, in part, to her clients’ willingness and enthusiasm. “The owners weren’t just fearless—they were trusting, which made it possible to achieve a house that is unique and hopefully will make them happy for years to come.”

THE CHALLENGE: Rejuvenate a Mediterraneanstyle Marin County abode to ensure ample common and entertainment-friendly spaces for a family with five children. “Their home in the city leans toward traditional, so they wanted to go a bit more modern for this one,” says designer Martha Angus, who worked with senior designer Katie Braznell McCaffrey on the project. THE WORK: To keep things interesting, the designers infused each space with vibrant shots of color, as exemplified by the dining room’s bright blue lava stone tabletop. “It’s kind of become our signature style,” Angus says. “And the clients were totally game.” However, the unusual dining space—essentially a two-story silo—

required a different approach. “We knew that we needed to do something that would completely change the acoustics,” explains Angus, referring to the space’s echo-chamber effect. “We came up with the idea of tenting the room, but only going halfway as high as the silo. It was quite an engineering feat.” THE RESULT: The sky-high structure, carried out by builder Corey Covington, with tenting made from Quadrille’s Arbre de Matisse and Taj Linen, creates a space that’s intimate and dramatic. The dining table from Sue Fisher King is framed with Elgin Minor side chairs by Niermann Weeks, and crowned by an Avron plaster chandelier from Bourgeois Bohème in Los Angeles.

THE CHALLENGE: Combine a newlywed couple’s differing design tastes without compromising the sensibilities and style of their Oakland Hills residence. “My house in Corona del Mar was beachy and feminine; whereas, my husband’s house in Danville was very masculine,” the wife says. “We wanted to find the right aesthetic as a couple.” THE WORK: Designer Will Wick went to work on the interior spaces, while home builder David McMorran presided over structural renovations. Inside, Wick envisioned crisp and organic modernism that combined new pieces with vintage and one-off surprises as accents. “It’s important for homes to feel special,” says Wick. “Even

if I’m designing a super-modern apartment, I always want to make sure there is a piece here and there that feels unique.” For the breakfast room, Wick found the perfect union of furnishings with a custom banquette using vintage Mastercraft bases and a custom claro walnut top. Praia Pipa by Brian Hodges hangs behind the Compass chandelier by Apparatus. THE RESULT: “Less is more,” says Wick. “Often a clean, spare aesthetic can pull off that masculinefeminine feel.” The newlyweds are thrilled with the home, which has become like a winning epilogue to their happy ending. “It’s a great merging of our two tastes,” says the wife, “and a great party house.”

Read below, as she fashions what her pitch-perfect itinerary looks like for a fun-filled day in the Yucatán. laurakirar.com 9 a.m. I always try to start the day with yoga and a swim at home. I’m still in the process of restoring my 18th-century hacienda, so I love to spend as much time there as possible. 10 a.m. Next up is breakfast: There are always tortillas made by hand, fresh-squeezed mango juice, huevos revueltos and avocados picked from the tree in my own yard.

11 a.m. There really isn’t a “shopping district” in Mérida, but the Mercado Principal in the center of town has a little bit of everything—from food to shoes to vintage jewelry. There’s also great shopping around the Parque de Santiago in Centro, where you can find contemporary, artisan-made sandals, hats and accessories at places like Kukul. 1 p.m. The lunch at Hacienda Temozon is fantastic; I always order the guacamole con chapulines, sopa de limon, carnitas and a tequila with sangrita. If it’s Sunday, we go to brunch at Hacienda Ochil. The hacienda is picturesque and also has its own James Turrell installation. 3 p.m. Next, I make my rounds: I visit FonArt shop for the best in embroidery, pottery, and table and bed linens, Coqui Coqui for natural mosquito repellent and room scents, and the Alfaro Galeria de Arte y Antigüedades in the Centro; though, the term “antiques” should be taken lightly—it has a really eclectic collection. 5 p.m. Then, it’s another late afternoon dip in one of the many surrounding cenotes, pools that form naturally when a limestone bedrock collapses. I love the Cenote Kankirixche; it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

Counterclockwise from top: Designer Laura Kirar wandering through her favorite outdoor market, taking a dip in the Cenote Kankirixche, and starting the night with friends and La Negrita’s famous mescal.

“The quality of light in Mérida inspired me to start painting again. They sometimes call it the ‘White City,’ but its skies are very blue. And, while it doesn’t have mountains, the clouds are so white and full that they almost feel like unscalable peaks in their own right.

The former executive director of one of the newest additions to the Yucatán arts scene, Fundación de Artistas, Indira Londono (right) reflects on the region’s growing creative community and gives collectors the inside scoop on where to go and who to watch when building their portfolios. fundaciondeartistas.org

Top Mexican artists to watch: Mérida has many talented local artists, but I’m mostly interested in artists who redefine the idea of art and utilize it as a vector to create a dialogue about relevant social issues. Some of my favorites are Alexa Torre, Marcela Diaz, Stefania Rivadeneyra, Karla Madera and Uggo Gonzalez.

What makes Mexican art different? It’s difficult to categorize and compare artwork from Mexico versus the U.S. because there are many factors that influence artists even within regions of the same country—for example, the art in the Yucatán will be very different than in areas like Oaxaca and Mexico City. Here, art specifically draws influences from many factors such as its region’s Mayan ancestry, Spanish occupation and the Caribbean climate.

Must-visit art fairs or festivals for American collectors: My favorites are Noche Blanca—an event sponsored by the city of Mérida in conjunction with artists, galleries, museums and public spaces for a finely curated tour of what the community here has to offer—and the National Biennial of Visual Arts of Yucatán—which features a wide range of Mexican art, including paintings, sculptures, photography, video-art and installations.

FIRST PERSON

MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD London to me is not only my original home and teenage stomping ground, it is a main artery for my decorative inspirations and design shopping. These days, I like to start my trip by booking into one of the splendid new design hotels that have sprung up across the country. My current hot spot is the super luxurious Beaumont hotel in London’s W1; it makes you feel like you’re in The Great Gatsby, but you’re not, you’re on a shopping trip with me; so, here’s what comes next: 8:30 a.m. There’s no better place to start your day than in The Colony Grill Room at Selfridges with a full English breakfast and lashings of Earl Grey tea all silver-served with the finest attention to detail. 10 a.m. Head over to Alfies Antique Market with dealers that sell everything from vintage-leather and vellum travel trunks (ask for Leslie Warander at The Tintin Shop to show you his secret stash hidden upstairs) to 1970s and ’80s Italian furniture and lighting. 11:30 a.m. From there, go to King’s Road in Chelsea. With luck, you’ll get to catch a viewing of the latest sale at Lots Road Auctions, a veritable bargainhunters local auction held weekly. My favorite antiques store in London, Guinevere, is just around the corner and is a real treat for the eyes.

12:30 p.m. After antiquing, a spot of lunch is required. I head to the Wolseley—by Piccadilly Circus—a European restaurant designed by my friend, the late and great David Collins. It’s highly stylized with black-and-white marble floors, bronze chandeliers and chinoiserie-lacquered panels. 2 p.m. A little après stroll down Piccadilly will bring you to Fortnum & Mason, the luxury food and lifestyle store that happens to make my very favorite tea, Imperial Earl Grey. After stocking up on that, I head to Jermyn Street to visit my tailor: Ozwald Boateng makes the most fun suiting. 3 p.m. No day in London is complete without art. The S2 Gallery, run by Fru Tholstrup, belongs to Sotheby’s and houses exhibits by rising art stars like Charming Baker, along with group shows, like the recent exhibit curated by Tommy Hilfiger and Jeffrey Deitch. As a photo enthusiast, I also head over to the Hamilton Gallery in Mayfair. 5 p.m. London is known for its quality upholstery and fabric houses, but for me, visiting the tiny trim shop VV Rouleaux is a necessity. This jewelbox store offers amazing trims, tassels, beads, feathers and other theatrical decorating tools. 7 p.m. The perfect day in London ends with my favorite eatery, The Ivy. Favored by London’s theater crowd, its recently remodeled interiors are cozy and glamorous. martynlawrencebullard.com

English homes, especially the wonderful country houses, have a very identifiable voice; they’re about putting various things together in a way that’s both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

Known for his wild color palettes and playful style, Jonathan Adler doesn’t mind buttoning it up every once in a while with a dose of classic British design. Here are his top-five spots to visit in London. jonathanadler.com 1. My shops! I have one on Sloane Avenue and one on Westbourne Grove. They’re great fun (as evidenced by Adler’s Zebra British flag rug shown at right), and I’d love them even if they weren’t mine. 2. Liberty of London is a must. The building is sublime, with the most gorgeous Gothic architecture and patina. 3. It’s not a trip without a visit to Harrods. You can get literally anything there. 4. I love Alfie’s Antique Market—a —a building full of little shops and surrounding streets with shops. It’s packed with heavenly finds. I spend almost an entire day there whenever I’m in London. 5. The Conran Shop is another favorite. I love going to the flagship location in Chelsea. They always have something new and outside the box.

practicality when it comes to design. It sees very formal and important pieces feeling at home with more approachable and humanistic things: a mastery of the mix. Favorite British designers past and present: The classic example, of course, is the design firm of Colefax and Fowler; their work has been a not-so-secret source of inspiration in a lot of really good English houses. Beyond them, I love the modernity and color of the legendary David Hicks and the historical elegance of Robert Kime. Is there a historic English house you’d particularly love to design? I’d be truly thrilled to outfit places like Haddon Hall or Chiswick House—estates that have really beautiful architecture and are just extraordinary with a kind of eccentric appeal. There’s something challenging and exciting about creating personality in a home that already has so much of its own.

Los Angeles-based interiors and product designer Jill Sorensen may have left her Swedish upbringing behind in terms of miles traveled, but she continues to embrace the country’s sophistication and simplicity in her fun and quirky home projects all over the U.S. Here, she sits down with Luxe to give us a Swedish design history lesson. jillsorensen.com Favorite Swedish designers past and present: I’m a fan of King Gustav III. He was a Swedish king in the late 1700s who was obsessed with design, and during his reign, he created the style of furniture that’s the most famous in the country today: Gustavian. I also love Josef Frank, who designed the amazing Swedish Tenn fabrics that are like pieces of art. What do you love most about Swedish design? I love all things Gustavian, which is

basically a simplified country version of Louis XVI style: the distressed furniture, whitepainted floors, etc. Because of the lack of sunlight (only four hours or so a day in the winter time), Swedes are experts at adding brightness to their interiors with pastel walls and white interiors. Best shops to visit in Stockholm: You’ll find the most incredible fabrics imaginable at the beautiful Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm; it was originally founded in 1924, and it never fails to impress. I’m also always surprised at the things I find at Bukowskis auction house. It has incredible antiques up for grabs and is surprisingly affordable. Otherwise, blocket.se is also one of my favorite little secrets: It’s a resale site that is very popular in Sweden. You can find amazing things for next to nothing in your local area!

The reverence for tile, a material that we so often overlook, filled us with awe. Palácio Ramalhete This hotel (shown at right) was an oasis of calm. There was gorgeous tile wainscoting everywhere, which was our favorite touch. We love hotels like this: intimate places (this one only has 12 rooms) with deep history.

Tage Andersen’s home (above), far from any major town, is an amazing work of art—and a working farm. The villa and gardens were created by Andersen, himself, a maverick florist and artist. It was designed almost as an art installation, but, again, with a farm, so it’s pleasing aesthetically but not at all precious. These trees were something that Andersen must have envisioned as many as 20 years ago; it’s taken that long to become what they are. heathceramics.com

“A home’s real measure of value is in the gratification of the people who live there.”

C

ass Calder Smith Architecture, established by UC Berkeley graduate and architect Cass Calder Smith, has been doing business in Northern California for more than 25 years. Founded in San Francisco, the firm now has a second office in New York, expanding its influence and project capability to encompass two of the country’s greatest cities. Smith has seen the area increase its international appeal and become more cosmopolitan and contemporary. Still, some of its more original characteristics remain. “It’s completely casual,” Smith says. “There is a strong emphasis on the outdoors and how it merges with the everyday. Recreation is a high lifestyle priority. In relation to design, I would term it casual modernism.” The area’s tendency to lean toward designs of this aesthetic is key for Smith, who calls the members of his team “card-carrying modernists.” Known for both commercial and residential projects, Smith has a unique perspective on the relationship between the two. “The common thread among all of our residential projects is a relatively consistent degree of informality,” Smith says. “Our clients want to live in relaxed but well-designed and nicely crafted homes. Our restaurant designs also reflect this casual modern lifestyle. I’m noticing a broad cultural shift toward informality.” The firm’s recently published monograph, EAT LIVE WORK, features not only 25 years of beautiful homes, but also a selection of commercial projects.

A VISIONARY CULTURE Variable aesthetics. “Mountain homes are more rugged and rooted, while houses near the coast are delicate and light,” Smith says. “They all seem to be very connected to their landscapes.” Global inspiration. Smith often travels to the Mediterranean, a location he favors for a quality of light similar to that of Northern California. Resources + innovation. “This is a place of pioneers, so there is always a focus on the cutting edge,” Smith says. “For designers, moving here is very magnetic due to the natural beauty and the caliber of people.”

The town of St. Helena, where he lives and runs Centric’s main office, has benefited for years from McDonald’s involvement in the community and his love of building the magnificent structures inherent to Napa Valley. The area’s architectural diversity creates a culture of innovation. “With the increase of estate land purchases, Northern California has created its own brand of design and lifestyle,” says McDonald, whose approach to business both inside and outside the region incorporates a strong understanding of the regional style. “We establish common goals early on, allowing for an environment where everyone can perform at their best. Our experience, skills and roll-up-our-sleeves work ethic allow us to deliver exceptional results.” Given its status as one of California’s premier builders, Centric’s process is clearly working.

stablished in 1989, Debbas Architecture’s first project was a local flower shop that set in motion an architectural journey its founder, Charles Debbas, describes as colorful and inspiring. “Being in the Bay Area allows us to reach out, physically and creatively, to places and people who look to this wonderful bed of invention we live in for unique ideas and solutions,” he says. “Northern California mirrors every face of humanity. Those who most enjoy living in the region appreciate its diversity, natural treasures and spirit of innovation.” Debbas’ philosophy is rooted in a holistic approach to design, through which he strives to create structures in perfect cohesion with the surrounding environment. Northern California, it would seem, offers the ideal canvas with which to work. “I find there is still room to weave the landscape, architecture and interiors together,” Debbas says. “With the incredible natural wealth that is our palette, I believe less in adopting a particular style and more in absorbing the site and its environment as inspiration.” Debbas goes on to note that while design is subjective, there are common threads that bind successful projects. “Other than a good weave of proportion, function, lighting and materials, its essence lies in humility and restraint,” he says. “By stripping architecture to its core, we can reveal one’s soul and engage the senses where clutter only suffocates.”

It comes as no surprise that their firm, Maggetti Construction, has found success in the area since its doors first opened. Today, the general contractors strive to provide the best service and quality to the location in which they have built their thriving business. Asked to describe the Northern California lifestyle, the two principals give different answers, each offering insight into the local ethos. “People here spend a lot of time being active outside,” Mitch says. Dave adds, “It’s perceived as hectic with Silicon Valley constantly expanding, but I find it very laid-back.” With a variance of elevations, landscapes and people, the region is home to a somewhat eclectic aesthetic, and it would seem the residents are as diverse as their homes. “We’ve built contemporary masterpieces in the mountainside and old-world homes in the city,” Dave says. “Busy professionals who desire high-quality services and honesty comprise most of our client base. The newer generation is high-tech and hardworking, but there are many different areas, so any type of person can find comfort here.” With continued growth and a vibrant, culturally rich community, Northern California offers ample opportunity to experience the natural world and the greatest of today’s innovations simultaneously.

VICTORIAN REVIVAL

SITUATED ON A CALISTOGA VINEYARD, A HISTORIC HOUSE IS REVIVED FOR MODERN LIFE. WRITTEN BY LAURA MAUK / PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAUL DYER

LUXESOURCE.COM / 211


F

irst impressions can be deceiving, something architect Richard Beard found to be true when he originally saw the vineyard in Calistoga— complete with historic buildings from the late 1800s—that his clients, Kisha and Jason Itkin, had recently purchased. “When I drove up to the property, the place looked derelict,” says Beard. “But beyond its run-down state was something impressive.” The couple had called on the architect to develop the property to include a winery and a residence, and the direction for the latter began to emerge. “The main house had a classic wraparound porch, and when I went inside, it was as if the interior had been frozen in amber,” says the architect. “The floors, walls and ceilings were covered in dark wood, but there were views of the beautiful landscape from almost every room. It was a postcard picture of a Victorian-era farmhouse.” Beard, who designed the house while a senior principal at BAR Architects and has since started his own

firm, could see its potential. “I knew it was the kind of building that could be designated a historic resource in Napa County,” the architect says. “So, I did some sketches and showed the Itkins what they could do with what was there. And they got really excited.” Jason, an attorney, and Kisha, president of the couple’s invitation-only winery—named Theorem Vineyards—live full-time in Texas and have been visiting the Napa Valley several times a year for almost nine years. “We’ve fallen in love with the area,” Kisha says. “We love wine and the boutique winery experience. When we decided to purchase a getaway, we looked in Napa for something with great vineyard soil.” Their search yielded the late 19th-century property that awed Beard and was originally inhabited by Dr. R. Beverly Cole, a prominent San Francisco physician. “It was fun to imagine how we’d peel back the layers of retrofitting,” Kisha says. “There were these original elements peeking through. It was amazing that so many were still there.”

Eric and Silvina Blasen, who designed the landscape, planted the approach with Midnight Mexican sage.

After studying the structure, Beard decided which elements should be maintained and what needed to change. “The house had character-defining features that were important to keep,” he says. “The wraparound porch had a Greek Revival-style handrail and columns that were beautifully naïve in a country-style way.” Beard had the porch and its details reconstructed as they were, reclaiming the house’s resplendent presentation in the landscape. “The windows were these gorgeous double-hung windows with multiple panes,” Beard says. “We fixed them so they worked properly and added new ones with single panes to tell the story of old and new elements coming together.” He also replaced layers of old roofing with new composition shingles and restored what original exterior redwood siding he could while applying new redwood to portions that were in disrepair. Inside, the architect stripped away the dark and dated elements and tore down walls that divided rooms. He reorganized the floor plan, creating living, dining and kitchen areas that are delineated by cased openings but still flow in and out of one another. “You feel like you’re moving from one room to the next, when it’s really just one big space you can see through,” says Beard, who sanded and applied a dark stain to the original Douglas-fir floors and then completely recreated the ceilings with Douglas-fir beams so that they’re vaulted and display dramatic airiness. He also repurposed the interior siding by turning it around—so the inside now faces out—and painting it white. “It was this Victorian beadboard that has so much character,” he says. “We found a piece that still had the original 1880s label on it from a mill in Oakland. We framed it and gave it to the Itkins.” The house’s colorful history also proved inspirational to designer Nicholas Proietti. “Those original windows with the iron counterweights and old strings were an epiphany for me,” he says. “When they open and close, you hear them clank and you sense the house’s history and significance.” Playing off that weighty feel, Proietti chose lighting with an equal sense of presence. The designer selected a massive

iron chandelier for the entry, which doubles as a dining area, and a striking vintage copper fixture for the master bath. In the kitchen, he hung leather-wrapped steel pendants. “I wanted the lighting to help create a timelessness,” says Proietti, who kept to a neutral but highly textured palette throughout. To counter the iron and the copper, as well as Beard’s design for a sculptural blackened-steel fire surround in the living room, Proietti utilized soft textures, including a cream-and-black Moroccan-style rug in the living room and a cream hair-on-hide rug in the adjacent entry. He added more layers of tactile materials to the living room by placing armchairs upholstered with caramel-colored leather alongside a custom sofa covered with linen-velvet. “I didn’t want anything to take away from the views,” Proietti explains. “The landscape has so much color depending on the season. I used muted colors so Kisha and Jason can experience the outdoors even when they’re inside.” And for when the Itkins do spend time outside, landscape architect Eric Blasen and his wife Silvina, a horticulturist, created a variety of experiences. The front porch looks to the existing vineyard, while the east side of the house features a garden. The Blasens, working with project manager Gary Rasmussen, preserved a variety of old fruit trees, including citrus, pear and persimmon. “On the west side, we did a courtyard and planted a Sophora japonica tree to help create a shaded seating area,” Eric says, and Silvina adds, “The back of the house looks to Mount Saint Helena, and that’s where we placed a hot tub and a fire pit.” Builder Paul Ryan managed the construction for the renovation. “The former Cole residence is a historic structure in a county that treasures its heritage,” he says. “But it was so dilapidated and had such an odd interior that at first I thought it might be better to tear it down. Richard proved me wrong. What he created is absolutely stunning. He kept all of the wonderful character, but when you walk inside, it’s a completely different world.” And that was exactly Beard’s vision. “This home always had such opportunity,” says the architect. “I knew it would be something spectacular if I could maintain the historic elements but redo the interior so it functioned well for modern life. Like any architect, I love new construction, but it was so rewarding to be able to repurpose an entire house with such history. Talk about sustainable design.”

visual merchandising at Bloomingdale’s and with a men’s fashion start-up in Shanghai before switching gears and returning to school to study textile design. For example, the unexpected inspiration behind her premiere Decay collection was a corroded drainpipe. Drawn to the almost romantic patina and texture variation of the oxidized metal, Miller started experimenting with rust dyeing. To begin her process, Miller scouts out unique rusted objects, ranging from doorknobs to bolts, which she finds from architectural salvage suppliers such as Building Resources—a favorite haunt, where she has come to be known as “Rust Girl.” She then sprays linen-cotton or silk with a water-vinegar solution and wraps the object, or sometimes several, in different manipulations of the fabric. She leaves it to oxidize for about two days before unwrapping it. “The rustdyeing process is unpredictable and creates these beautiful organic shapes,” says Miller. In dealing with the inconstant nature of her method, the designer has adopted, as she calls it, an “experimentation with no expectations” ethos. “I have perfectionist tendencies, and this is why I like these processes,” she adds. “They force me to let go of set ideas and tap into true creativity.”

Once an assortment of rust-dyed fabrics appeals to Miller, she scans them into her computer to manipulate the colors, adds and combines elements together, and turns them into repeating patterns before sending them out for samples. Waiting to see how the visuals translate onto yardage fills Miller with nervous excitement. “Seeing the actual product in full repeat on fabric is completely different from anything on the screen,” she says. While the dyeing process creates fabric studies with an almost wabisabi-like aesthetic, the finished designs tend to reflect the familiar classic motifs found in damask, lattice and ikat. In the beginning stages of developing a new collection, Miller can experiment with novel techniques for up to four weeks with months of refining thereafter. Currently, she is captivated by the reflective interactions of light and dark on photo paper. Instead of making traditional black-and-white prints, she is investigating alternative camera-less processes such as lumen prints, chemigrams

Miller creates textile studies by allowing fabric-wrapped rusted objects to oxidize in a water-vinegar solution (top, center). The rusted objects leave a pattern on the fabric (above), which Miller later scans and manipulates on the computer.

and cyanotypes. Through her experiments, using these techniques with vintage and expired photo paper, she is discovering design elements reflective of Rorschach tests and painterly textures that will make their way onto fabric and wallpaper. While the designs in her collections continue to evolve, one thing that won’t change for Miller is the allure of natural elements. “Everything I do is inspired by nature in some way,” she says, noting sacred geometry and the golden ratio as specific examples. Her designs explore those notions in subtle and textural ways. “Throughout history, so much great design has drawn from geometric principles,” she says. “The amount of geometry that exists in the natural world is awe-inspiring.” 230 / LUXESOURCE.COM

T

his project is as much about the land and trees as it is about the structures on the site,” says architect Eric Haesloop of a family’s relaxed, cedar-clad retreat he designed on a verdant 20-acre parcel with giant oak trees and a tranquil spring-fed pond. “It’s right next to a vineyard in a really beautiful part of Sonoma County with rolling hills. The owners and I looked at several different properties, and this one just stood out.” Working with project team Mary Griffin, Mark Hoffman and Jerome Christensen, Haesloop sited the house to harmonize with the majestic oaks and to frame views of the pond. The architect designed the home as two separate volumes: The larger pod contains the main living areas and a master bedroom, while the smaller one includes a guest suite. A green roof covers the structure of the guest suite and sections of the main volume, and a thin cool roof that almost appears to float connects the two parts of the house. “The roof enhances and extends the tree canopy,” Haesloop explains. “It’s a light horizontal line that works with the cedar siding.” The thin canopy both protects an outdoor LUXESOURCE.COM / 235

living area—complete with its own fireplace and hardwood floors—and also frames a view of a magnificent oak tree and the pond in the distance. Nearby, Haesloop positioned a swimming pool and detached guesthouse, which he sheathed with the same cedar siding as the main structure. “The L-shape of the house and the guesthouse and pool bracket each other and, in a way, the yard between them is the biggest room,” Haesloop explains. “Outdoor living was very important to the owners.” But, before construction could begin, the stables and other buildings on the former equestrian property had to be dismantled. “We actually recycled most of the material,” builder Jim Murphy explains. “The windows were recycled, and a lot of the lumber was donated and shipped out. We saved as much as we could.” That strategy was just the beginning of the project’s environmental slant. Designed as a passive house with no air conditioning, the structure is powered, in large part, by two photovoltaic arrays, the largest of which was sunken into a pit behind the house that was excavated by John Benward Company. “The owners were interested in a sustainable house, and this was designed to be a net-zero building,” Haesloop explains. Adding to the relaxed feel of the project, landscape architects Larry Reed and Bill Hynes used plantings to define spaces by function while accentuating the area’s natural beauty. “Our clients didn’t want a whole lot of structure to the landscape, so we gave them an open meadow to circulate between the main house and guesthouse,” Reed explains. “We did a lot of research on native California grasses that would thrive underneath oak trees.” A variety of indigenous grasses, shrubs and perennials surround the meadow, and they become gradually taller and wilder toward the outer perimeter. Fruitless olive trees also play a key role, framing both the parking court and a vegetable garden behind the garage. Near the pond, the plantings become more riparian in nature, and the landscape 236 / LUXESOURCE.COM


A covered outdoor living area, situated between the main houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two volumes, is appointed with a pair of woven sofas and an orange chair, all by Paola Lenti from Dzine. The custom walnut coffee table was designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop and built by Ed Clay.


architects worked with a water-quality specialist to design a pumping system that would filter the pond. “That process improved the clarity of the water,” says Hynes, “and also created a better environment for fish and invertebrates.” The importance of the surrounding landscape is keenly felt inside, as well. Haesloop designed the main structure’s great room—which contains an open living, dining and kitchen area—with a tall ceiling and two walls of sliding glass doors. Clerestory windows wrap around the entire space, letting in light and cooling breezes. Long pieces of Douglas-fir wall paneling and built-in screens both emphasize and soften the home’s rectilinear form. “The wood makes for a warm, enveloping interior that works well with the trees,” Haesloop explains. “It’s about getting the values from the inside and outside to work together, so that the space really flows throughout.” To complement the warmth of the wood, designer Margaret Turnbull centered the great room’s living area with an antique rug that the owners brought back from Istanbul and then chose furnishings within an equally bold palette. “The clients are highly color motivated, so we were able to use some pretty strong hues,” Turnbull explains. “We tried to discover what would make their hearts sing over many years.” She chose a low-slung sectional covered with deep-red textured cotton, for example, to face a wood stove positioned against a board-formed concrete wall with built-in shelving. “The sofa has a relaxed attitude, and it also gives the volume of the space more grandeur,” explains Turnbull, who kept all the furniture low in height so as not to block the views. The designer employed a similar formula in the guesthouse, pairing a colorful rug with a trio of low chairs; a built-in bench provides additional seating. “The furnishings throughout are sculptural and invite you in, but they aren’t demanding attention,” Turnbull says. “The architecture, landscape and the interiors together are what make this such a special environment.” Indeed, the thoughtful design of spaces that flow seamlessly from inside to outdoors and back again encourage a casual lifestyle. “There’s an episodic quality to living in this home, which includes everything from kayaking in the pond and cannonballs in the pool to enjoying the fire pit and pizza oven,” Haesloop explains. “The result is much greater than the sum of its parts.”

MAKING A STATEMENT SOPHISTICATED FURNISHINGS, BOLD COLORS AND CURATED TREASURES MIX TOGETHER IN LUXURIOUS LAYERS FOR A DESIGNERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S OWN NOB HILL RESIDENCE. WRITTEN BY TERRI SAPIENZA / PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRISTOPHER STARK

INTERIOR DESIGN / AMY WEAVER, WEAVER DESIGN GROUP


T

here aren’t any bare walls, that’s for sure,” says designer Amy Weaver of her Nob Hill home, “but layering is what makes a house interesting.” When it comes to Weaver’s sun-filled two-bedroom apartment, which is outfitted from floor to ceiling with a collection of personal treasures, each with their own backstory, interesting is an understatement. “I think I was meant to live in this apartment,” says the designer, “because everything fits!” Weaver had long admired the historic 1920s building before moving in. Its black-and-white façade, with ornate architectural detailing and French doors, windows and ironwork, give it the look of a boutique hotel from the outside. Inside, residential spaces boast soaring ceilings, intricate millwork, marble flooring and spacious rooms

with “perfect scale and proportion,” says Weaver. Her own unit features expansive windows offering sweeping views of the surrounding city, including a peek of The Bay from the master bedroom. Little was left to do prior to moving in, aside from painting and hanging wallpaper. “When the architecture is this good, it makes things easy,” she says. “It enhances everything you already have.” But what Weaver already had was pretty fabulous in its own right. Over time, the designer has amassed a vast collection of art and accumulated antiques and keepsakes from her world travels. “I love to travel, and I usually pick up a piece of art because it’s easy to bring home and it’s a good memory,” she says. “I’ve been collecting for the last 25 years, and I always find places for the things I buy.” She also likes to include something unexpected in

every space—the plaster sheep head in the living room, for example—and to mix centuries and price points, which she believes is key to making a room more appealing. “I like blending old and new together, especially contemporary art mixed with antiques,” she says. “I have fine pieces alongside things from CB2. It’s about taking something from the past and making it fresh. I think that’s good design.” When it came to the color palette, Weaver opted for neutral canvas followed by an infusion of color through art, textiles and accessories. Given the designer’s background in fashion—she spent 10 years at Macy’s, eventually overseeing all special service areas for 18 stores—she is armed with an affinity for fabrics and the ability to combine colors and patterns in ways that make spaces look cozy and effortlessly chic all at once. “I prefer spaces that feel warm and lived-in,” says Weaver. “I like my homes to be comfortable.” In the entry and living room, she chose a muted backdrop paired with black accents. “Black adds richness and grounds a space,” she says. “It’s like the eyelashes of a room.” The inky color provides more than just a finishing touch in the dining room, where Weaver dressed the walls in four coats of high-gloss Black Forest Green paint by Benjamin Moore. “I love a black room; it’s so mysterious,” she says, “and in this room in particular it just feels right, as if the color has been here forever.” The glossy walls are a foil for the tactile surfaces found in the dining room. For instance, in the space’s sitting area, Weaver hung artwork made from old books above the sofa, which she flanked with a pair of gilded lamps that are crowned with feather shades that she picked up in Paris. The leopard-print rug adds another layer of texture as well as some playfulness—a hallmark of Weaver’s work “It’s a fun neutral,” says the designer, “and I thought sisal would have been too flat.” A diamond-patterned sisal rug was perfect, however, for the living room, where it’s paired with a tactile Phillip Jeffries wallcovering and provides a muted ground for several

seating areas. Weaver, a frequent entertainer, opted for a two-sided chaise, upholstered in a smart stripe, rather than a sofa in order to accommodate more guests. “It’s truly the party room in my home,” she says, adding, “It can seat 12 easily.” For another seating area near the windows, Weaver upholstered fanciful antique chairs with black-and-beige linen divided straight down the middle. Fornasetti pillows complete the graphic look. “Fabrics are the clothing for your furniture,” she says. “Without beautiful textiles and trim, furniture seems flat.” Vibrant art and throw pillows punctuate the room with color, energy and interest while simple window shades, which can be pulled almost completely out of sight, help take advantage of the natural light and every inch of the view. Weaver installed wallpaper in the entry foyer as well— choosing burlap to balance the sleekness of the existing

marble flooring. “I am crazy about wallpaper,” she says. “Paint does the trick, but it doesn’t have the warmth or depth that wallpaper brings to a space.” For a little extra oomph—and another layer—she piped the paper with black grosgrain ribbon, and then lined the walls with framed antique architectural prints. In both the kitchen and master bedroom, Weaver switched gears, swapping the darker hues for pale blues, lending a softer, more feminine feel to the spaces where she spends the most time. The serene master bedroom, with its cozy wool carpet, custom bedding and water view is her favorite place in the apartment. From room to room, the inspired combination of her commanding artwork, sophisticated furnishings and bold textiles reveals a home that’s elegant, whimsical and, most of all, personal. “I love buying items that speak to me,” says Weaver. “So often people are afraid to put their own stamp on their home. I’m not afraid; I embrace curated design.”
