EDITOR’S LETTER

EYE ON DESIGN Design is not only a transportive experience but a reflection of our culture, fashion, art and architecture as well. At its best, great residential design summons the idea of a place and is rooted and connected to the local landscape, adding a sense of appropriateness and indigenous commentary. For this special Design 2017 issue, we’ve thrown open the doors and uncovered the best of what makes a home stylish. From kitchens and color to architecture, materials and outdoor living, we present inspiration, ideas and expert advice from top local talent in the industry—architects, interior designers, builders and other design pros. This January/February issue also marks our sixth-annual Gold List, a collection of individuals and firms from across the country who are at the top of their game. I hope this latest issue leaves you inspired and filled with a head full of rousing design ideas!

CONTRIBUTORS

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

What do you enjoy most about design? The thing I love most about design is the story that it can tell. I gravitate toward spaces that have something to say about the owner: where they’ve been, what they like, who they love. Soulless spaces are not my thing, and I’m obsessed with creating a globally inspired home for myself. Whenever I travel I seek out smaller design stores, antiques and flea markets, and boutiques that feature local designers. My biggest design and travel pet peeve is people who buy kitschy souvenirs. Prized possessions: I’ve moved quite a bit while chasing my career. It’s exhilarating, but it also means I tend to clean house every year or two. So, if an object sticks with me, then it’s quite special. My favorites include a set of hand-carved olive wood bowls inlaid with bone detailing that I picked up while traveling through Africa, a vintage brass bar cart I drove three hours one-way to pick up off an antiques dealer, and a wall-sized map of the world. It wasn’t expensive and doesn’t have a fancy frame, but in all the places I’ve tried to make look like home over the years, it’s always occupied a wall. Favorite Luxe interview: Photographer and designer Martyn Thompson was a fascinating person to sit across a couch from. If his eclectic SoHo loft wasn’t inspiration enough, then his stories of moving to New York and finding his niche in the art world did the trick.

CHELSAE ANNE

Photographer / Palm Beach

What would be your dream work assignment? I would love to photograph for an Anthropologie catalog one day. Best career advice you’ve ever received: The lens and photographer are more important than the camera. Current design obsession: A blue velvet couch. If you could have one hidden talent, what would it be? Resiliency. Favorite book on your coffee table: One featuring the works of American artist John Singer Sargent. Most meaningful object in your house: A four-poster platform bed that my husband made for us.

LX_COM11_Contributors.indd 108

CHRISTINA HOLMES Photographer / New York I find creative inspiration from… My home state of Michigan. Nature and the natural linear landscapes of the countryside have always influenced me. How did you get started in your career? I shot reportage at a party where guests’ shoes were being shined with Dom Pérignon. Name one person you wish you could photograph. I would love to shoot a portrait of Paul Newman. What would your superpower be? Empathy and invisibility. Projecting emotion into every shot but never being seen in it. If I had a spare $20,000 to blow, I’d buy… Shoes for every occasion. And maybe even a day of my own time. Words of wisdom: Take the time to see the bigger picture in all that you do.

MAILE PINGEL Writer / Los Angeles My biggest creative influences come from… My library. At nearly 2,500 vintage and out-of-print titles, it’s pretty much an endless source of inspiration. My husband put a moratorium on buying any more, but I’ve snuck in a few! Whose work has impacted you the most design-wise? Big L.A. designers of the 1980s— especially Kalef Alaton, whose famous house in West Hollywood I drive by all the time. I think a lot about how he, and so many others like him, would have continued to shape California design had they been given longer lives. He was only 49 years old when he died due to complications from AIDS. Assuming that money were no object, I would purchase… A little Effegibi home spa. I’m so fascinated by all the new wellness products out there, like compact steam and chromotherapy designs for residential use. Ideal work trip: I would love to go on a driving tour of the United Kingdom to visit all the beautifully restored properties by The Landmark Trust. What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? Just keep doing what you’re doing. Also, don’t wait so long to get a dog. If not a writer, I would be… A landscape designer—I’d love to create beautiful gardens for people to enjoy.

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 113

11/21/16 12:47 PM


RADAR / NEW GUARD ALEXANDER M. REID 

New York | alexandermreid.com WHY WE LOVE HIM: Alexander M. Reid thrives on the juxtaposition of vintage and contemporary design for homes that are both comfortable and stylish. Reid’s fashion-forward aesthetic has endeared him to some of couture’s biggest names: leading him to design spaces for Rebecca Minkoff, Coco Rocha and Jenni Kayne. Using different textures, materials and bold color, especially moody black, he transforms spaces with warmth and depth. ON THE HORIZON: Reid’s agenda is full for 2017: He’s in the process of designing homes everywhere from Manhattan and the Hamptons to Los Angeles. IN HIS WORDS: “I’ve never been too keen on following the trends in home design—or anywhere, really. I operate with the knowledge and have complete faith that good design will never go out of style.”

▼ MEREDITH ELLIS

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

 MAX HUMPHREY

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

MAGGIE CRUZ ▲

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 114

IN HIS WORDS: “I like every room to show signs of life. You can tell a project is mine because it will be slightly undone, with artwork everywhere, and there won’t be any karate-chopped pillows.”

 CAITLIN MURRAY Los Angeles | blacklacquerdesign.com WHY WE LOVE HER: Though Caitlin Murray is meticulous and detailoriented, her interiors are as effortlessly cool as they come. Innovative combinations in pattern, color and material make for joyful spaces that reflect the laid-back sophistication of their Southern California surroundings. ON THE HORIZON: Murray is expanding into product design this year and is currently working on an e-commerce extension to her website in hopes of launching a furniture line in the future. IN HER WORDS: “I lead with intuition and emotion, which makes every project unique. The creative process feels very fluid to me, and too much analyzing throws me off.”

 WESLEY MOON

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

STEPHANIE HAUPTLI

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

COLIN GRIFFITH ‡

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

Denver | griffithid.com

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

 LAURA KEHOE

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

 KATIE STOREY

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

LX_COM11_Radar_NewGuard.indd 116

ON THE HORIZON: Kehoe is excited about a large project built in the foothills of Ahwatukee, which will feature traditional elements and French country touches. Because it’s not a typical design for a home on a mountainside in Arizona, Kehoe is focusing on making sure the home seamlessly blends in with its environment. IN HER WORDS: “Our aesthetic is both elegant and very livable, and our approach is one of soft-handed guidance where we collaborate and listen to our clients.”

RADAR / NEW GUARD

WHY WE LOVE THEM: Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop and Kristen Ekeland bring New York edge to Chicago, thoughtfully curating homes with a touch of whimsy. ON THE HORIZON: A golf clubhouse and a lakeside estate in Canada are in the works for Studio Gild. IN THEIR WORDS: “Our firm is a partnership in the truest sense.

RADAR / DEBUT

REVVED & READY DESIGNER CAM CROCKFORD EXPERIMENTS WITH RAW MATERIALS TO CONSTRUCT USEFUL WORKS OF ART FOR HIS BUZZED-ABOUT FURNITURE DEBUT. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY BRITTANY CHEVALIER

PORTRAIT: ALBERTO LACCOURREYE.

“My style is very sculptural and free-flowing,” says Brooklyn-based artist and craftsman Cam Crockford of his recently launched modern Deco furniture line. The groundbreaking debut, an artful and refreshing take on traditional and timeless forms, has garnered praise from some of the industry’s most discerning patrons—and it’s easy to see why. The collection distinctly embodies Crockford’s innate passion for timeless design and his deep appreciation for organic lines and textures, which he explores without sacrificing form or function. “Everything I make is a one-ofa-kind custom piece of art,” says Crockford. “My work is really about taking a raw material and manipulating it into a usable sculpture.” But Crockford is no overnight sensation: Since moving to New York City in 2010, he has held many behind-the-scenes positions with a number of notable artisans, including Tom Fruin, whose public art installations have recently become fixtures along the Brooklyn skyline, and custom furniture maker Mark Jupiter. A true artist and fabricator at heart since childhood, Crockford’s enthusiasm for his craft, hands-on mentality and intense curiosity to learn new techniques using

unexpected materials have driven him to evolve and, consequently, stumble upon fortuitous circumstances. When his friend, who works for a high-end designer, had an unusual fixture that he needed assistance devising, Crockford tackled the project without hesitation. “Two days later, he and his boss came over and were pleasantly surprised with what I had produced,” he says. “Some call it luck, but to me, it’s what happens when skilled preparation collides with opportunity. It was the turning point of my career.” Inspired by his world travels and prolific artists, like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, Crockford’s creative process starts as an improvisational exercise of roughly assembling shapes and pairing colors with complementary textures. “I usually

LX_COM11_Radar_Crockford.indd 120

begin a project with scraps from my studio, and once I have a ‘palette’ for each piece, I start to manipulate the materials into their final form,” explains Crockford. Using recycled building materials from past projects, he fashioned his first piece, the RawDeco sofa (shown), with old pine beams salvaged from a Bronx warehouse and brass tubing. “The sofa was a great foundational piece that I poured my heart into, and from this followed the rest of my first collection,” he says. Crockford will launch his much-anticipated next line this spring with the same gusto and ethos: He plans to continue pushing boundaries by using new types of industrial materials, as well as stone and glass. “I like to set the bar high for myself,” he says, “and try to never get comfortable.”

TALKING SHOP WITH LAURIE FURBER

ELSIE GREEN When did you open? We recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of our online shop, and we opened the retail boutique in August 2013. Tell us about the store concept. We offer pretty, eco things for every room in the home, extraordinary personal service and lots of ideas and inspiration. Our intent is to build our business by helping other small entrepreneurs build theirs. We always invest a portion of our sales in philanthropy projects—whatever speaks to us. What’s on the shelves? The majority of the collection is vintage, with some newly made pieces sprinkled in. Highlights include our expansive collection of vintage china, flatware and fabrics, as well as Moroccan tea glasses and our reclaimed-wood dining tables. Where do you hunt for the shop’s vintage wares? Most of the vintage pieces— we handpick every one—come from France. Tell us about the in-store design studio. We wanted a space in the store that allowed us to show some of our custom capabilities in a real-life setting. So, we converted one of the back rooms into a showplace for things like our custom furniture, color consultation, custom lighting and custom fabrication. And we can also find you at the Alameda Flea Market? You can spot us in aisle Q every month. What’s next? We have a fun collaboration in the works with a beloved blogger, but mum’s the word for now. elsiegreen.com

“I love the work of Bella Ironworks in Alameda. Artist Jill Turman, who drives a pink forklift, can fashion anything you imagine out of metal. I like supporting other women-owned businesses.”

“I’ve been tracking Mariah Nielson’s (the daughter of artist J.B. Blunk) work as a curator and designer. Her project, Permanent Collection, epitomizes NorCal style. Every design item and accessory has a timeless elegance.”

“I am in love with the work of textile artist Carrie Crawford from Mineral Workshop in Fairfax. Her framed art and dyed-fabric pillows are both modern and bohemian, old-world and new-world.”

BLUEPRINT 181 FREMONT RESIDENCES

SoMa will soon be home to the tallest residential tower west of the Mississippi. The building, 181 Fremont, will ascend more than 800 feet into the sky with a spire from the crown that reaches toward the clouds. One of only two towers to connect directly to the new Transbay Center’s five-acre park (the other is the Salesforce Tower), the dazzling structure developed by Jay Paul Company and designed by the internationally renowned Orlando Diaz-Azcuy features a state-of-the-art exoskeleton in a striking sawtooth pattern. Inside, the lobby oozes with opulence—a sprawling banquette set beneath a gold-leaf dome with a flowing fabric shade, originally handsketched by Diaz-Azcuy. “To enter the lobby of this building is like walking into a living sculpture,” he says. Each of the 55 custom condominiums—slated for summer 2017 move-ins—boasts a unique layout, personalized design and breathtaking views of the bay, as well as luxurious details such as Calacatta marble from Italy, paldao wood sustainably sourced from New Guinea, and polished-brass door handles custom-crafted by Parisian artisans. 181fremontresidences.com 112 / LUXESOURCE.COM

#INSTACRUSH

@apartment_34

WHO: Lifestyle blogger Erin Hiemstra has been chronicling interiors since 2007, and her keen eye for style and design provides daily inspiration for her more than 52,000 followers. Lately, she’s been feeding us enviable renovation updates of a San Franciscan Victorian home she and her husband bought two years ago. We like everything we’ve seen so far, but she likes to say it’s still a work in progress.

WHY: Her true passion is cultivating a life well-lived, and through her blog, she hopes to help followers do the same. IN HER WORDS: “I’d say my style is sophisticated casual. While I lean toward the modern, I don’t want things to feel austere. I believe spaces are made for life to happen in them, rather than just be looked at.”

MINNESOTA STREET PROJECT

THE INSIDER WINDY CHIEN

Artist and product designer Windy Chien has dipped her toes in just about every corner of the creative world: She has presented film work at Sundance, owned and operated San Francisco’s legendary Aquarius Records for 14 years, and helped build Apple’s iTunes. Then, in 2015, she launched her own studio in San Francisco’s Mission District, where she artistically explores the idea of daily rituals. Her “Year of Knots” project, which involved learning and posting about one new knot-tying technique every day in 2016, recently concluded and she’s still working through where to take the study next. Here, Chien shares what’s on her radar in San Francisco this season. windychien.com What’s on your mind about the local design scene? Like any longtime resident of San Francisco, I have mixed feelings about the tech boom and all the money pouring into the city. But the silver lining is that local interior designers and architects working on big residential and commercial projects are going out of their way to bring commissions to local artists. Must-see for art lovers: Pier 24 is like a holy temple for photography. We tend to take that medium for granted these days, but the simple film camera was “high-tech” a hundred years ago.

“San Francisco is being challenged to sustain a vibrant arts-and-culture environment in the midst of a booming corporate business climate. The threat of galleries, artists and art professionals leaving the Bay Area en masse due to rapidly increasing rents across the region was the inspiration for creating Minnesota Street Project. We realized the root cause of the problem was a lack of available, affordable real estate, and we decided that providing a space

solution would be the most effective, immediate way to prevent an exodus. The Project is home to galleries and artists with a range of experience—from mainstay galleries with 30-plus years in the business, like Rena Bransten Gallery, to newcomers such as Bass & Reiner. Hopefully, our model will inspire new ways of patronage and the Project’s mission will reverberate.” —DEBORAH AND ANDY RAPPAPORT, MINNESOTASTREETPROJECT.COM

Ones to watch: My sisters in fiber and textiles: Liz Robb, Meghan Bogden Shimek, Jess Feury, Kristin Colombano of Fog & Fury, Kate Miller of Elworthy Studio, April Rose of Rainbow Kimono and Jenny Fong of Modern Shibori. Ultimate project: I’m inspired by the potential of public art installations and would love to make a huge piece for an airport. Large installations inspire a sense of awe and offer the opportunity to move around, under and even within the work, so the relationship to the viewer is always changing. Inspiration of the moment: I love the threaded rainbow gradients of installation artist Gabriel Dawe. His work traces shapes in what would otherwise be unrecognized interstitial spaces, like the space around stairwells.

INSTACRUSH PHOTOS: ERIN HIEMSTRA. THE INSIDER PHOTO: MOLLY DECOUDREAUX. CURATOR PHOTO: MARIKO REED.

WHAT: Hiemstra’s goal is to find beauty in the everyday—whether it’s a picturesque Greek island, a perfectly styled room or fashion classics. But she also sets out to share the unexpected, from an interesting shadow to a cool architectural detail.

DATE BOOK CHRISTINA BRYANT

7 a.m. Head down to Pacifica to surf. One of the things I love most about living in San Francisco is the easy accessibility to nature. This is a great spot, just a 25-minute drive south of my Presidio Heights home, where I can truly get away. 9 a.m. Back in the city, grab a coffee and light breakfast at As Quoted in Presidio Heights. Its simple and well-executed menu includes a turmeric latte (for pretty skin) and gluten-free avocado toast.

DATE BOOK PHOTOS: PORTRAIT, SUZANNA SCOTT; VIGNETTES, COURTESY ST. FRANK.

One of the newer additions to Sacramento Street’s design row in Presidio Heights is the globally inspired St. Frank. “Our goal is to offer a new luxury lifestyle rooted in the home and built for today’s sophisticate—someone who travels around the world, who wants authentic products with rich histories, and who cares about ethical sourcing,” says Christina Bryant, founder and CEO of the St. Frank brand. The look is modern bohemian, but it’s more than just unique, beautiful products. “Our mission is twofold: first, to support economic opportunity for artisans and, second, to preserve traditional artisanal craft,” she says. To do this, St. Frank partners with entrepreneurial artisan workshops and vintage textile vendors around the world to make products using craft methods. Bryant, who has her flagship store in San Francisco, with two other locations in Palo Alto and Culver City, gives us her insider tips on where to explore in the Bay Area. stfrank.com

“Home Land Security” exhibition in the former military barracks. The setting gives you access to areas of the park not usually open to the public. 2 p.m. Take an Uber across town to the Ferry Building. This is a cliché recommendation for a reason. Stroll the small specialty shops, including Far West Fungi, which is entirely devoted to mushrooms! Meet a friend for lunch and sample from a few different vendors or head straight to Hog Island Oyster Co.

10 a.m. Pop into St. Frank’s flagship store on Sacramento Street, just a few doors down. The shop houses the largest selection of our collection and, as of late, includes a “Pillow Bar” where you can build your own custom pillow from our fabrics. From there, stroll east down Sacramento Street and enjoy one of the best home-shopping streets in the country. Anyon Atelier, Hudson Grace, March and Sue Fisher King are can’t-miss stops.

4 p.m. Next, head to the Mission District for boutique shopping. Because I’m a book nerd (I will never convert to an e-reader), I stop into Press for amazing art, design and other niche book genres from small independent printers—and cute cards, too.

12 p.m. Go to the Presidio for a walk, where you’ll see some of the city’s best views. Be sure to check out the exhibits; I really liked the recent

5 p.m. Mosey over to Dolores Park to relax and people watch. This is a whole different side of the city—and a colorful contrast to the tony Presidio Heights.

6 p.m. Meet a friend at Beretta for a cocktail or glass of wine to start the evening. This is a trendy, buzzing spot with good ambience. 8 p.m. Finish off the night at Zuni Café. This charming San Francisco classic is one of the very first restaurants I went to in the city. Bring your crush and split the roast chicken.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

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

ROMY NORTHOVER ARTIST DESIGNBYNO.COM

Artist to artist: Helena Sultan’s work sends a message to connect to the present. As with her company’s name, Konekt, the pieces themselves, titled Pause, are a beautiful and simple reminder to do just that. On balance: There is a conversation between these materials—the shiny and the matte, the warm and the cold. This complementary opposition displays a true understanding of balance. Authenticity is what separates these pieces: It’s clear Helena’s designs come from the heart and soul, and that really reads on a subliminal level. Color play: Cobalt, a precious pigment, is historically used in iconography, while rusty red imbues more of a wabi-sabi philosophy. I’m drawn to the tension this unexpected pairing of the chairs and background explores. Last call: The Pause pieces are bold, contoured, tactile and considered.

CASTING CALL THE PIECE: Pause Lounge Chair and Pause Chaise Lounge THE DESIGNER: Helena Sultan FIND IT: konektfurniture.com THE INSPIRATION: The Pause lounge chair and its sister chaise were born from a desire to invite users living in a world of digital overload to take a moment and slow down. Through the Pennsylvania-based designer’s use of curvaceous fiberglass shells and alluring materials—copper, mohair, brass and velvet—the results are that of deep comfort, timelessness and a penchant to make one pause.

FOREVER YOUNG THE PIECE: Contour Armchair THE DESIGNER: Cliff Young, Ltd. FIND IT: cliffyoungltd.com THE INSPIRATION: With a comely and clean design in mind, Cliff Young, Ltd.’s Contour armchair came to fruition, and with it, the generational and highly respected brand’s intention to brighten and lighten any space this sculptural piece will ever inhabit. With its inviting, lightweight form and stunning hide and metal options, this is indeed a mission accomplished.

SALLY KING BENEDICT

ARTIST SALLYBENEDICT.COM

Artist to artist: Cliff Young, Ltd., has been on the vanguard of modern and relevant designs for nearly 50 years—how impressive is that! I’m immediately drawn… To the simple lines, mix of materials and functionality of the Contour chair. It’s also attractive in that it has a modern Italian look that pops against this cobalt background. There is nothing finer… Than a supple, smooth leather to lie upon and break in to your own personal, perfect fit. The hide paired with the lustrous finish of the rose gold is a match made in five-star heaven. On keeping it real: Because the world is so inundated with the visual overload of others’ work and inspiration these days, true authenticity and original design seem harder and harder to come by. I find it critical for true artisans and designers to continue on with our paths and ideas. Cliff Young, Ltd., has always been a fearless leader in doing just that. Last call: The Contour chair feels inviting, supple, streamlined and elegant.

KELLEY JOHNSON ARTIST JOHNSON-KELLEY.COM

Artist to artist: Farrah Sit’s design aesthetic is so pleasingly minimal and functional and permeates everything she does—the Noir chair is no exception. Opposites attract: The strong and enduring quality of steel fused with the durable warmth of cotton is such a fresh marriage, visually and time withstanding. Anytime you take a risk… You learn something about yourself and the work that you do. It’s the only way to discover your truth and take a stance on the message you want to convey. Color play: The cobalt and rust hues of the background, along with the severe lighting, heighten the planar and angular quality of the composition and seem to speak the same language as the Noir chair. This study in contrasts, between the light and the dark, the hard and the soft, could actually be used to describe both the environment and Farrah’s design. Last call: The Noir chair reads as architectural, minimal, refined, purposeful and timeless.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 161

FREE AGENT THE PIECE: Noir Lounge Chair THE DESIGNER: Farrah Sit FIND IT: farrahsit.com THE INSPIRATION: Architectural planes, airy silhouettes and sleek edges define the Brooklynite’s Noir series. A cool and clever exploration of “less is more,” the series’ star chair marries an unexpected pairing of steel and woven cotton, proving that opposites are often better when they’re together.

LEATHER AND LACE THE PIECE: Artemis Armchairs THE DESIGNER: Kelly Lamb FIND IT: kellylamb.net THE INSPIRATION: Multidisciplinary designer (and cool Californian) Kelly Lamb took all the right cues from Artemis— the Ancient Greek deity, goddess of the hunt and mistress of the wilderness and the moon—when concepting this namesake chair. Leather upholstery and lacing reference the aesthetic of mythic times, while the metal finishes are fit for no less than a god or goddess, circa-BCE times or present-day.

LX_COM11_Market_Spotlight.indd 162

WAYNE PATE ARTIST WAYNEPATE.COM

Artist to artist: I’m deeply impressed with Kelly Lamb’s body of work and the balance in her execution of color and materials. Considering its composition and angles, I find this piece disarming. On authenticity: As well-known American graphic designer Paul Rand once said, “Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.” That quote has had a lasting effect on me and informs how I approach my own work and look at others. Clear-cut appeal: The Artemis feels like a classic, modern chair, but one that you were not aware of until now. I can never get enough of… Black metal and bronze. Historically, this assembly of materials has been behind the making of so many iconic pieces from the 20th century. A real beacon of luxury… Is the laced-leather detail on the back of the chair—so clever and unexpected. Last call: The Artemis chair feels clever, understated, graceful, sophisticated and effortless.

THE CLIMB THE PIECE: Sempione Stool THE DESIGNER: Natasha Baradaran FIND IT: natashabaradaran.com THE INSPIRATION: As homage to her grandfather and childhood afternoons spent lazing and feeding the pigeons in Milan’s stately Parco Sempione, Natasha Baradaran reimagined a sculptural stool that’s equal parts nostalgia and high style. Part of the L.A.-based designer’s new Curva collection, the stool and its counterparts are packed with Milanese style and are meant to celebrate dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing).

MIMI JUNG

ARTIST MIMIJUNG.COM

Artist to artist: Natasha Baradaran has a markedly effortless knack for creating harmony in everything she touches, from her interiors to her furniture. What’s most striking… About the Sempione stool is the intention and process that went into the realization of this piece. From the sweet inspiration to her ingenious use of plush and more severe materials, the whole design reads as a piece of art. On authenticity: Working in the creative world is a privilege—with it comes a responsibility to honor the past, respect the present and inspire the future. The ultimate luxury… In my opinion is being surrounded by artful works in your own home; I would love for this stool to live adjacent to the sofa in my living room. Last call: The Sempione stool is textural, plush, sculptural, heavy and light.

FULL OF GRACE THE PIECE: Stool 001 - Ebonized THE DESIGNER: Vincent Pocsik FIND IT: vincentpocsik.com THE INSPIRATION: Stature, anatomy and cattle—a curious but oh-so-successful grouping of inspirations that led to the realization of Vincent Pocsik’s Stool 001. Stirred by the bodily structure of animals, specifically that of the bull, Pocsik’s design was crafted with the same elegance, strength and balance as that of the stoic and larger-than-life creature.

JOHN HOGAN

GLASS ARTIST, DESIGNER & CONSULTANT JOHNHOGANDESIGNS.COM

Artist to artist: Vincent Pocsik’s designs hold a soft masculinity and elevated feel that derives from simple, fluid lines and hearty materials. The attention paid to the negative space is really important to the sophistication of these stools. On timelessness: Vincent’s use of traditional materials is tried-and-true and makes the most sense for a stool. So many designs are beautiful but solely so; longevity and aesthetics should never be exclusive of one another. Luxury nowadays... Seems to be going in two different directions: Some concepts are more complex and involved, while others rely on the simplicity and quality of materials to say something more understated. Stool 001’s strongest luxury is its restraint, and I appreciate that. There is something about this form… That suggests anatomical movement to me. I feel like maybe the stools want to go for a walk. Last call: This piece reads as masculine, soft, strong, chic and stable.

Alberto Villalobos & Mercedes Desio Villalobos & Desio | New York, NY “The new collections at High Point Market get better and better each season. We love seeing unique, tailored pieces that are ideal for city living. The range of furniture collections always surprises us. The proportions are varied, so it’s easy to source pieces for any project, whether an apartment in the city or a house in Florida. The collaborations between designers and showrooms are always inspiring. After all, it’s more than just trends, it’s about offering individual visions.” “When visiting High Point Market in the future, use social media to navigate ‘must-see’ products that editors and others are posting. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and take in all the events and parties to catch up with your peers and revel in what’s new in design.”

Brit Kleinman AVO | Brooklyn, NY “It’s hard for me to pinpoint a particular product from High Point Market that served as an inspiration, but I loved the use of color in everything—a lot of warm neutrals mixed with pops of bright hues. I find that there’s always a product ‘find’ for everyone! I particularly like to visit Historic Market Square and the cutting-edge innovations that evolve from other small businesses that exhibit there. I am very inspired by manufacturing techniques and the story behind makers. A lot of domestic manufacturers have had to fight to stay afloat and that perseverance comes out in the innovation of the product.” Credit: AVO

Michelle Morgan Harrison Morgan Harrison Home | New Canaan, CT “I am always looking for inspiration in fabrics, interesting color combinations and mixes of materials. But color is what drives me. This past market I saw some great combinations that were consistently found throughout all of the showrooms. Blue was everywhere… in different shades and combinations, but steel blue was the color of the market. Pinks and blushes continued to be popular, and black and cream combos were everywhere in organic textures. Teal and turquoise, combined with black and pops of coral was a new look. Brown was back, but it was a brown with gray undertones. I also saw a lot of brass, and black metal legs and frames on sofas and chairs.”

The centerpiece of this Houston kitchen is the breathtaking island from Chateau Domingue; it was made from a 17th-century sacristy cabinet from Jaca, Spain. The large steel window from Atelier Domingue provides a more contemporary counterpoint to the exterior kitchen wall, which incorporates stones reclaimed from a house in Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Provence region. Pantry doors designed by architectural consultant and designer Sarah West flank the window.

CHARACTER BUILDING HIGHLY CURATED MATERIALS AND LUXURIOUS CUSTOM DETAILS BRING TIMELESS APPEAL TO THE HARDEST-WORKING ROOMS IN THE HOUSE. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

The warmth of wood, the cool touch of marble, the gleam of brass or nickel: There’s a reason why materials carry so much weight in the kitchen and bath. Capturing both the senses and the imagination, they offer a magical combination of tactile sensation and arresting beauty that goes far beyond function. Consider how an inspired mix of decorative finishes can elevate a room beyond the ordinary, or how a thoughtful installation of architectural elements can pay homage to a home’s history or bring context to a space where none existed, such as in new construction. Here, we take a look at the ways designers are using all manner of materials to add a layer of personality and authenticity to your home’s busiest hubs.

SALVAGED BEAUTY SARAH WEST

PHOTO: WADE BLISSARD.

Houston-based architectural consultant and designer Sarah West combines European treasures with clean minimalism for a fresh take on the country French look. Share your inspiration. My aim was to strike a timeless balance: The architectural antiques and salvaged beams provide a stark contrast with the clean lines of the vent hood and the steel divided-light window. Originally, the window was supposed to have an arch, but making it rectangular felt much more modern.

Let’s talk about that island. I wanted to integrate a freestanding furniture-like island in the center of the kitchen, reminiscent of something you’d have seen in France several centuries ago. It was a way to introduce history and have a beautiful piece anchoring the space. The goal was to have that immediate “wow” factor when you enter.

Why work with salvaged materials? People tend to like pieces that tell a story, but especially with new construction, it’s hard to add a sense of history to a space. Bringing in antiques lends patina and character. You can have a drawer handle and see where it’s worn from centuries of use. That kind of context is always appealing. LUXESOURCE.COM / 163

SURFACE APPEAL Less about form than function, vanities aren’t usually the first place one looks to make a splash style-wise in the bath. That may change with Chameleon Concepts’ Parsons vanity, though, which features a customizable façade with a wide range of finishes you can use to coordinate with the surroundings. The door front cleverly frames inserts of various materials such as tile, mirror, marble or leather, allowing designers and homeowners to put their personal mark on an otherwise underutilized area. chameleonconcepts.com

There are few places in the house where abundant lighting is more essential than the vanity mirror. With a three-bulb LED option, the Julien sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting ensures that you’ve got just enough coverage to tackle all your grooming needs, all while making a glamorous statement in opulent aged brass. Groovy satellite shades combine midcentury good looks with a dash of space-age cool, so your bath will be as chic as it is well-lit. hudsonvalleylighting.com

IN THE

BLACK

For the past decade, we’ve seen freestanding tubs soar in popularity, but one thing has been a constant: Whether they were vintage-inspired or contemporary and sculptural, soakers were overwhelmingly white. Now, the matte-black trend, so in vogue for kitchen appliances and personal tech, has made it to the bath in the form of the Warndon tub from Victoria + Albert. Crafted from a solid casting of volcanic limestone and resin, it’s harder and more durable than acrylic, and it comes in seven finishes. ferguson.com

These days, high-impact finishes in the bath go beyond mere tile and stone. Architectural flourishes, brass hardware and striking surface treatments combine to create unique spaces filled with character and an element of surprise. Take this Minneapolis powder room, where black and white is anything but basic thanks to a conversation piece of a vanity featuring a whimsically curvy leg. “The vanity is spectacular, but it doesn’t dominate the room because we kept the space dark and cave-like for maximum drama,” says builder Chris Van Klei of Detail Homes.

LET YOUR FIREPLACE BE THE HEART OF YOUR HOME AND STYLE, WITH RADIATING DESIGNS THAT ADD MAJOR WARMTH TO THE SPACES THEY OCCUPY. WRITTEN BY MONIQUE MCINTOSH

PHOTO: PHILIP HARVEY.

Any room with a fireplace inspires visions of enchanting evenings, and this jewel box of a living room certainly fulfills, with lush textiles and earthy embellishments collected by designer Stephen Sutro for this Presidio Heights home. 1 / Clean Slate: Paint your fireplace the same color as the surrounding wall for subtle impact. Here, the formality of the mantelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beveled molding is softened with a seamless wash of dark gray, creating a uniform canvas for playful accessories. 2 / Against the Grain: Think beyond the mantel when introducing interesting wood accents around the fireplace, like this medallion of sculptural, gnarled wood in lieu of the usual mantelpiece artwork. 3 / Close to Heart: Create seating catered to fireside conversations with a rich variety of textures. For example, an assortment of club chairs in buttery leather, along with a velvety teal tufted ottoman, make a perfect perch by the hearth. 4 / Pride of Place: Make your fixtures equally as worthy of the limelight as your fireplace. This layered chandelier leaves a clear view of the mantel and adds warmth against the dark gray walls with its tortoise-shell finish.

Cottage living gets an upscale update in this Napa Valley home designed by Kara Mann, with a fireplace that reads truly refined thanks to sculptural lines and creamy hues. 1 / Country Charm: Surround your fireplace with a textured backdrop for a true statement wall. Here, V-groove paneling evokes the traditional country home, while its whitewash surface plays well with more minimalist décor. 2 / Bare Necessities: Up the impact of your mantel by editing your décor down to a few memorable pieces that catch the eye. Dark accents, like the starburst mirror and the trio of candlesticks, stand in sharp contrast to the fireplace’s milky palette. 3 / Rocky Road: Break up the clean profile of your fireplace with something more freewheeling. The jagged surface of these custom selenite-topped tables by Blackman Cruz provides the perfect antidote to the fireplace’s pristine lines. 4 / Artful Balance: Create sophisticated symmetry around your hearth with matching furnishings. Here, the fireplace is neatly bookended by two Ochre sofas covered in soft Holland & Sherry fabric, as well as two brass floor lamps by Richard Shapiro Studiolo.

The raw, knotted texture of these stunning ceiling beams—reclaimed from an old Pennsylvania Dutch barn—works perfectly with the fireplace’s antique limestone. 3 / Something New: Pair your vintage surround with thoroughly modern seating. These sleek, unapologetically contemporary couches and club chairs from Christian Liaigre help reframe the rustic fireplace for modern-day living. 4 / Top Shelf: Dress down the formality of your grand fireplace with some built-in shelving, which creates an ideal spot to display more personal touches like family photos, favorite books and travel mementos.

CENTER STAGE The heart of the home is not exempt from changing tastes: Kitchen design reflects how people live, and that’s constantly evolving. The ongoing popularity of the open plan has transformed this hardworking room into a performance space in itself. It’s fitting, then, that this lovely kitchen by Peek Architecture + Design is situated in an apartment that occupies what was once part of an old theater. It’s a fine example of how color, customization and materials are coming together to create highly detailed, bespoke spaces with big drama. On the following pages, take a look at the elegant upgrades we can’t wait to bring to our own kitchens this year.

bench MARK

When it comes to sex appeal, a cozy corner banquette certainly trumps a breakfast bar. An upholstered nook evokes the glamour of dining out without actually having to leave one’s home, but, more importantly, it encourages one to slow down and sit—even for meals on-the-go. Inspired by her clients’ love of Belgian design, Minneapolisbased designer Kate Roos opted for a freestanding piece in this family kitchen. “The hand-tufted navy blue bench rests on quarter-sawn white-oak legs to keep it feeling light,” she says. Gray cabinetry, marble countertops and brass accents complete the space’s warm European aesthetic. kateroosdesign.com

RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES Even novice home cooks want to know: What features do pros and serious foodies look for in a stove? “I’m all in favor of models with a range of heat—big BTU burners and also ones that simmer well,” says expert Mark Bittman, author of the How to Cook Everything series. One method of cooking that’s been heating up over the last couple of years is induction. The cooktop’s two biggest selling points are high heat and a low constant simmer. To satisfy demand, Italian company ILVE is introducing a brand-new 36-inch and a 40-inch induction range this year, like the one shown here. ilveappliances.com

OPEN f lame

For the kitchen of this Brooklyn town house, New York architect Elizabeth Roberts knocked out walls on the parlor level of the home to create an open floor plan. “The clients are avid cooks and wanted a place where they could socialize with guests while preparing food,” she says. Clear sight lines also ensure that all eyes are on one of the space’s most unique features: a year-round wood-burning grill with an adjustable rack. Navy blue tiles from Heath Ceramics surround the grill, making it as sleek as it is practical. elizabethroberts.com

4 BALL & CHAIN

Pendant lights in the kitchen continue to evolve from purely functional to all-out fashion statements. For evidence of this trend, look no further than the Dolma chandelier from designer Windsor Smith for Arteriors. Combining a Byzantine influence with modern geometry, the light features polished-brass hexagons that form a lacy globe suspended from a delicate chain. Whether hung in multiples over an island or as a singular fixture over the sink, the open basket-weave design is sure to throw artful shadows throughout your home. arteriorshome.com

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

There’s a reason why black is the first choice for cocktail attire. It’s perennially chic, goes with virtually everything and easily hides spills. Now apply those attributes to the kitchen, and you can see why a noir cookspace, like this one from San Francisco designer Catherine Kwong, holds so much appeal. “I wanted to create an area that was moody and glamorous, but also able to withstand a lot of use,” she says. Hardworking materials like jet-painted cabinets and brickwork subway tile set the scene, while unexpected elements like flathead screw detailing on drawer fronts and a vintage bronze mariner’s sconce add shine and contrast. catherinekwong.com

For these Art Deco-inspired pieces, designer Jessica Ahnert Davis of boutique hardware company Nest Studio proves she isn’t afraid to mix materials, combining chrome or brass joinery with acrylic. The knobs’ notched design recalls the retro lines of old-fashioned radios and microphones while simultaneously maintaining an edgy, contemporary vibe. nest-studio-home.com

With backsplashes seemingly growing bolder and more luxurious by the minute, the hunt is on for tile that delivers on both fronts. Offering a modern take on the Roaring ’20s’ love for gilt and glam, the Gatsby mosaic from TileBar combines Nero Marquina and white Thassos marble in a lively geometric pattern with crisp, brass linear accents: No wonder it’s named for the character who embodies the style and decadence of the era. tilebar.com

FUTURE FORECAST THREE TOP DESIGNERS TALK ABOUT CURRENT KITCHEN TRENDS AND SHARE A FEW PREDICTIONS FOR THE YEAR.

KAREN WILLIAMS

ST. CHARLES OF NEW YORK What’s the biggest trend you’re seeing? We’re slowly moving away from total open-plan kitchens by finding ways to delineate spaces with architectural separations or a change of floor pattern. We’re also seeing more walk-in pantries for storage. Any must-have upgrades? Luxury finishes, beautiful chandeliers and fixtures, ranges in high-end materials, even luxury hardware— you see, touch and use these things every day. Kitchens see a lot of use, so people have come to view these touches as a worthy investment. Up next? I think there will be more personalization and an influx of interesting materials in the kitchen, such as new finishes and exotic veneers. Be on the lookout for more mixing of metals and darker palettes, resulting in new levels of sophistication. stcharlesofnewyork.com

CHRISTOPHER PEACOCK PEACOCK HOME

What is on your clients’ wish lists? High-quality hardware in both classic and transitional styles is always important to our clientele. It is what brings the cabinetry to life and provides the mark of great design. Is the era of the white kitchen over? It’s evolved. Spaces still use white, but we are consistently seeing large sections of the cabinetry painted with a strong color to break up the neutral look. More than ever, we are noticing islands or stand-alone pieces painted in dark gray, and many of our clients are choosing to use black high-gloss oil finishes on their cabinetry. I see a shift toward darker rooms with a more masculine mood. Up next? More glass elements and dark metals like bronze and brass, creating a very eclectic collection of materials in one setting. peacockhome.com

JESSICA HELGERSON

JESSICA HELGERSON INTERIOR DESIGN Share the biggest trend you’re seeing. We try to avoid trends in our kitchens and instead have them architecturally reflect the houses they inhabit. I would rather be trendy with lighting and furniture, which is easier to replace. The worst-case scenario is to do the perfect kitchen for this year and then have it be… 2018! What’s your biggest challenge? People live in their kitchens in a way they didn’t in the past. We work on a lot of historic remodels, and it is always a question of how much we can open up the kitchen, incorporate seating areas, etc., without compromising the integrity of the house. Open shelves or closed cabinets? Both! Displaying a few objects nicely on an open shelf is great, but we usually try to place the refrigerator into a wall of cabinetry that conceals what you don’t want to see. jhinteriordesign.com

window

DRESSING Many kitchens feature a window over the sink, but few do it with as much panache as this Alys Beach, Florida, home. For this project, Nashville-based designer Chelsea Robinson drew on the Moorish influence present in the rest of the house. A swooping pointed arch highlights the window, forming a focal point for the kitchen as well as a recessed bay for the sink area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The juxtaposition of white plaster walls with dark cabinetry, warm brass finishes, Moroccan arches and a clay-tile backsplash create the perfect blend of modern elements and old-world patina,â&#x20AC;? she says. chelsearobinsoninteriors.com

SADAF AMIRI AVERY INTERIOR HOME Santa Clara, California 510.504.9053 inquiries@averyinterior.com averyinterior.com

Dabbling in design for nearly 10 years, Sadaf Amiri turned her passion into a career as a luxury home staging and interior design professional. “I helped a realtor friend stage a listing, and had a blast reimagining the space,” she recalls. “After that first home, I was hooked and Avery Interior Home was born.” Working with one goal in mind—a happy client—Amiri approaches every project knowing her clients are trusting her with an important transaction, selling or designing their home. “We’re there every step to ensure the client is thrilled,” she says. Rather than design around a certain piece or color, Amiri focuses on emotions and moods as her key influences. “Once we know what we want to evoke, we focus on the right pieces, colors and layouts to capture those feelings,” she says. For inspiration, she looks to the beauty of everyday objects, from door paneling to a kitchen faucet. “These are the details that set a room apart.”

Making sure that a space makes you smile, every time you enter it, is the defining characteristic of a well-designed home.

Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? No! You won’t recognize the Avery Interior look because each home and project is unique. But you will recognize the Avery Interior ‘feel’—the feeling that when you walk into a room, you don’t ever want to leave! What are your favorite hobbies? While I love painting (especially watercolor landscapes), as a working mom I spend every extra moment with my son. Thus, my current hobbies include Legos and puzzles! What is your most prized possession? My father's old watch winder, which he left me upon his passing. While it no longer winds his trusty timepiece, it contains a few photos of the two of us as well as a picture of my dad holding my son as a newborn. Who has most influenced your work? In terms of pure design aesthetic, I am most influenced by Coco Chanel. Her designs are truly transcendent; the epitome of classic timelessness. I hope to achieve the same with my work. What is one thing your clients would be shocked to know about you? I have been with my husband since we were 13 years old. Not only were we college and high school sweethearts, we were actually junior-high sweethearts! How do you think your clients would characterize you? I think that they would characterize me as fun, energetic, hard-working, appreciative, considerate, punctual, determined and loyal.

Amiri’s client wanted to design the living room around the coffee table—the first piece the owners bought for their new home. With winter in mind, Amiri chose a mix of warm tones to blend with gray, the client’s favorite color.

GUSTAVE CARLSON DESIGN

Growing up in Connecticut, architect Gustave Carlson was always fascinated by the farm vernacular, exploring barns and meadows as a young boy. This penchant evolved into a love of well-crafted furniture and cabinetry—both of which he incorporates into his firm’s projects today. Based in Berkeley, Gustave Carlson Design draws from his past to inform its approach to residential projects coast to coast. “We have a connection to the site, and each building has a landscape connection to indoor and outdoor spaces,” Carlson says. “The key is circulating in and around the interior and exterior; introducing new technologies and found objects, and studying the landscape conditions.” Working with families and second homeowners, Carlson begins by asking for a wish list, then searches for images that represent their desires, and incorporates them into the finished product. “My creative process is to present as many ideas as possible with as many possibilities as I can,” he says. “The homeowners edit, remove and combine ideas until it feels comfortable.” Paying attention to every detail, Carlson and his team take into account everything from the building materials, the light quality and the furniture, to the color and mass of the building. “We want our collaborative process and vision to be an elegant experience for every homeowner,” he says. Currently, the firm is working on a Sonoma County farmhouse—bringing his love of modern-day rural design to life.

Gustave Carlson, Principal 2718 9th Street Berkeley, California 510.524.5181 gustave@gustavecarlsondesign.com gustavecarlsondesign.com

Good design is understated and edited to allow the building, landscape and rooms to breathe.

Ask the Expert

What are your favorite styles to work on and why? I love courtyard homes. They give you various views of the indoor and outdoor spaces, and those views help to inform the overall design. Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? Our work is recognizable through its detail of circulation and design principles. However, our buildings take on many forms, from luxurious modern to casual farmhouse contemporary.

How do you define a successful project? The sign of a successful project is when something very unexpected comes up in the design or in the construction, and it becomes an opportunity for improvement.

HOME BUILDERS + REMODELERS

NORTHWALL BUILDERS

Builders Brad Bennigson and Wakefield (Wakey) Mist work with many different architects and clients, and in many different styles, but their projects share common ground in their execution and keen attention to detail. Founded in 1996, NorthWall Builders brought Bennigson and Mist on board in 2005. They later became managing partners of the firm. Tasked to keep its focus and dedication on the superior craftsmanship of new homes and major remodels, they bring to each project a deep appreciation for the art and science of home building, a thorough understanding of the construction business and an unwavering commitment to service. “Our main objective is to execute the design intent and bring clients’ visions to reality,” Bennigson says. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, many of the firm’s clients welcome a forwardthinking, boundary-pushing approach. “This gives us the opportunity to use advanced building techniques and innovative technologies,” Mist says. Both which have become hallmarks of the firm’s success. “We love developing creative solutions to complex problems.” While neither pinpoints a favorite style, both agree they love contemporary for its complex precision and historic renovations for the mix of old and new. With many long-standing clients, the firm clearly focuses on building more than homes. “We pride ourselves on our relationships and attribute our success to the positive referrals we receive from clients and partners,” Bennigson says. “Our relationships don’t end the day the family moves into their home.”

Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes “good design”? A space that draws you in and beckons you to stay and enjoy it. A space that feels comfortable and usable, not untouchable. What would be your dream creative project? To work with three-dimensional modeling detailers and execute details that are traditionally too complex to carry out in the field.

Maria Haidamus Principal

What is inspiring you now? I am inspired by San Francisco. The city continues to reinvent itself in the most creative ways, and I love discovering it all over again. However, ultimately, my inspiration comes from spending time with my next client.

San Francisco, California 415.794.4864 maria@haidamus.com mariahaidamus.com

MARIA HAIDAMUS INTERIORS

Drawn toward simplicity and organic design, Maria Haidamus shies away from projects that are overly intricate or “stuffed with objects,” as she puts it. “I love having one or two items that tie everything together.” Experienced in both residential and commercial renovations, Maria Haidamus Interiors simplifies the design process for clients, offering an understanding of complex projects from beginning to end. As a young girl, Haidamus spent much of her time moving furniture and repositioning art, informing her career move into design and architecture. “I never had any guessing phases,” she says. “Whenever I walk into a room, I immediately envision it in different ways.” Largely influenced by global travel, she immerses herself in the local art and architecture of the countries she visits, “enriching my internal library and imagination,” she says. So, when taking on any new project, she embraces the creative process, which includes problem solving and interacting with vendors, resources and artisans to come up with the best solutions for her clients. “I always listen, really listen, to my clients,” she says. “I believe they usually know deep down what they want; it’s my job to help them get there.” Inspired by her travels as well as client experiences, unique treasures and historical perspectives, Haidamus delivers creative, edgy designs reflective of her clients’ unique personalities.

How do you define luxury? Luxury might sound glamorous or over-the-top, but I define it as warmth, comfort and simplicity. What do you strive to create when you’re working on a project? I always strive to improve flow, layout and overall functionality of a space, while preserving architectural integrity.

01. The clients requested a comfortable interior for their 1905 San Francisco home. Plush upholstery in bold colors adds warmth while contrasting the classic architecture. 02. Luxury and comfort come together in this Noe Valley Victorian home, where earthy tones and natural elements create an inviting space.

BLASEN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

Founded in 1993 by husband-and-wife team Eric and Silvina Blasen, San Anselmo-based Blasen Landscape Architecture employs a unique approach built on Eric’s command of landscape architecture and Silvina’s expertise in horticulture. Now comprising four designers, the firm’s portfolio exudes a passion for design, art and nature. The Blasen team, currently working on projects in the San Francisco Bay Area, Miami, Montana, Napa, Pebble Beach, Santa Barbara and Silicon Valley, begins its process with an in-depth analysis of the site and context. Eric and Silvina strive to create gardens that meet all of the goals and expectations of the client while fitting into the surrounding landscape. “It is very important to us that the landscape design and the architecture engage with each other in a thoughtful way,” Eric says. “Our strategy hinges on a dialogue with the architecture through materiality, color and stylistic language.” As part of achieving this overarching objective, the firm places a premium on client involvement and collaboration. According to Silvina, the individuality of each space is the most crucial component. “For us, it is not about a particular style, as we enjoy working on modern gardens as well as traditional ones,” she says. “Rather, it is about collaborating with clients to create meaningful places. When we are able to build trust, it results in thoughtfully designed gardens.”

Silvina Blasen, Principal Eric Blasen, Principal 500 Red Hill Avenue San Anselmo, California 415.485.3885 info@blasengardens.com blasengardens.com

Ask the Expert What is inspiring you now? We are now working on several projects across the country with distinct landscapes, climates and flora. It has been invigorating and rewarding to expand beyond regional plant communities.

What are you working on next? We are designing a private preserve and garden on 350 acres near the Bohemian Grove in California. The preserve will also be used as a hands-on classroom, providing opportunities to learn about the regional environment and sustainability. How do you define luxury? Luxury is when everything is tailored just for you. Design that is truly one of a kind, that is luxury.

ALL ABOUT:

Color Color has the extraordinary ability to elicit a particular mood and create a certain ambience, which makes it a powerful tool in home design. But assembling the perfect palette today is way more fun than it has been in previous years when whites and beiges reigned supreme: Lately, homeowners have been more eager than ever to get playful with unexpected hues. Artistic wallpapers, printwearing chairs, eye-catching window treatments, splashy rugs and patterned pillows are all making appearances, whether sparingly or abundantly. Combinations like white with black or navy will forever remain classics, as well as reliable backgrounds for pops of color, but know the rainbow is yours to pursue ever boldly. We turned to some of San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading design pros for advice on how to approach color with confidence.

In contrast to the traditional backdrop of a 1915 Bay Area home, designer Maria Tenaglia opted for streamlined furnishings and a dynamic use of color. Jewel tones highlight the library, where walls are painted with Benjamin Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Perfectly Pesto, and an aubergine-and-gold rug by Kyle Bunting grounds the space. A Holland & Sherry chartreuse velvet covers the custom tufted sofa, while a purple Nina Campbell fabric for Osborne & Little dresses custom wing chairs.

Draperies made with an apricot-hued Kelly Wearstler textile for Groundworks play off the muted Celerie Kemble for Schumacher wallcovering. A bright yellow Lulu DK fabric slipcovers host chairs, and side chairs wear seats covered with a Bob Collins & Sons floral.

Whether used strategically with a prominently chosen fabric or boldly with walls dripping in candy-toned paint, color often proves to be the defining element of a space. And although a homeowner’s comfort level may vary when it comes to diving into the rainbow, here designers share how working with hues that are muted, brilliant or somewhere in-between can lead to showstopping results. Palmer Weiss: Designing this room (shown) required walking an aesthetic tight rope as the space needed to be sophisticated, moody and worthy of a glamorous and languorous dinner party, while, at the same time, it’s basically a hallway to the fresh sunny kitchen, where family life dominates. You don’t want to get whiplash crossing the threshold! We went for drama in the subtleties of the high-gloss pale lilac walls, the deeper tone of plum in the rug and chairs, the acid green cut-velvet banquette and the play of decorative lighting. In doing such, we were hoping the space felt as dramatic at night as it did friendly during the day. Ian Stallings: Every client is different. Some are much more trusting and

LX_SF14_EOD_Color.indd 225

willing to make bold selections, and others want to be more reserved in their design choices. It’s always exciting when people push themselves out of their comfort zone and make a daring color choice. In the end, they are always happy we went the stronger direction, and it usually becomes their favorite part of a project. Jennifer Jones: As designers we try to remain open to all colors, since each project is so different. That said, my personal aesthetic veers more toward cool than warm. I could work with slate blue, wispy gray and moss green all day every day! The subtlety and sophistication of cooler tones brings a calm and tranquil feel to a room.

Interior & Event Designer

How important is color in your designs? Color is very important to me. My color choices are usually inspired by something other than design: the caramel of a vintage car’s leather, the burgundy of my favorite velvet dinner jacket, the color combination from an old Fellini movie poster. What inspired you to upholster the settee in this residence (above) with such a vibrant hue? Not everyone is ready to wrap their rooms in pulsating color, but most of our clients appreciate the bold design statements that have become our

LX_SF14_EOD_Color.indd 227

signature. So we’ll take a traditional chair or sofa and make it feel modern by upholstering or painting it with a bold color. In what way do you use color to affect the mood of a space? There are clear “happy” colors for me; bright Hermès orange is my favorite. And I love vibrant jewel tones—ruby, sapphire, burgundy—as these are such celebratory colors that sparkle in candlelight and look regal when set against brass or silver candlesticks. Do you have a go-to color? I’m having a long love affair with green, and

it’s not letting up any time soon. We have projects underway that are incorporating a hand-painted malachite finish on walls, inlaid green-and-white marble chevron floors and deep chartreuse lacquered walls. What’s your favorite way to use color? I love vibrantly colored walls, whether painted or upholstered. The color envelops you and creates a magnificent backdrop for a room filled with great artwork and furniture that feels collected over time. Bold color choices also show that you are brave and not afraid to live large.

Designer Ken Fulk set out to update a Victorian home in Pacific Heights by streamlining the floor plan and selecting a mix of modern and classic furnishings coupled with unexpected elements. His strategic use of color enlivens the entry, where he hung an Ellsworth Kelly lithograph above an English Regency settee upholstered with a vibrant Casamance fabric.

Kitchens ALL ABOUT:

Whether it’s a farmhouse-inspired retreat accented with copper cookware or a modern chef’s kitchen complete with sleek marble countertops and stainless-steel fixtures, today there are more options than ever for creating a functional and beautiful space for cooking and entertaining. With an endless variation of materials, island shapes and sizes, paint colors for cabinetry and backsplash designs, there are numerous ways to make a distinctive mark on the home’s foremost gathering place. Here, we turn to experts who share their inspiring ideas for making one of the busiest places in the home both modern and timeless.

Designer Sherry Williamson, working with architect Andrew Mann and builders Michael McCutcheon and Alex Hodgkinson, spearheaded a meticulous renovation of a couple’s East Bay home with the goal of creating a simple and eco-friendly environment. The kitchen exemplifies the structure’s minimal materials palette as the walls, ceiling and floor all boast FSC-certified American white oak. A central dining area is appointed with a Knoll table and chairs by William Haines Designs.

KEN LINSTEADT Architect

How important was the materials selection for this kitchen (shown)? Very important. My clients were seeking a house that felt at once old-world Provincial and modern at the same time. The rustic materials juxtaposed with the modern elements help with this dialogue. Also, the kitchen ends up having the same materials palette as the rest of the house, which makes it less “kitcheny.” Tell us about the layout. The clients wanted a spacious sitting area that was visually connected to the kitchen, and I felt that pulling the dining nook to the side of the kitchen helped integrate the sitting area more directly. As an architect, how involved are you with the kitchens in your projects? We have always designed our own kitchens, including all of the hard surfaces. The kitchen is so integral to the entire feel of the house that I can’t imagine disconnecting it from our overall design concept. Ultimately, how much can you break the mold when it comes to kitchen design? We always make sure that the bones of the kitchen are highly practical and functional, and then we like to add elements that follow the spirit of that particular house. It’s always different— as it should be! LUXESOURCE.COM / 231

KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL

Nowhere is the design adage “form follows function” truer than in the kitchen. Packed with utility, this workhorse space is designed to perform. But more and more, it’s also thought of as a gathering space, where people are naturally drawn to congregate and linger. Here, professionals offer their perspectives on how to arrange this pivotal room, without sacrificing an ounce of service or style.

Lorissa Kimm: We took a very minimalist approach to the materials throughout our entire house (shown), focusing on just a few: French oak on the floors, rift-cut white-oak cabinetry with accents finished with a matte-white conversion varnish and countertops of Calacatta Vagli Oro marble. Our kitchen is completely open to the living room, and the materials palette is the same, so there’s a real seamless quality to both spaces. You never get the feeling that you’ve left one and entered the other. Eriche Wilson: Most clients want the kitchen to complement the design of the rooms that are open to the kitchen. They also want the functions of the kitchen to disappear. We work with Arclinea cabinetry, and we almost always cover the refrigerator and dishwasher with cabinetry panels so they integrate seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen. We also frequently use

LX_SF14_EOD_Kitchen.indd 233

pocket door systems to hide cooktops, ovens and sinks. Something that’s also becoming more common is utilizing a butler’s pantry, where messes from prep and cooking can be hidden and the “public” section of the kitchen becomes part of the entertaining space. Our clients who entertain can also have caterers use the butler’s pantry so that the noise doesn’t disturb their dinner. Catherine Macfee: When it comes to kitchen design there are no set rules in my mind. The goal is to customize the space for the needs of the cook and how she/he enjoys entertaining with their family and friends. Designing a kitchen is similar to solving a puzzle. One dumps all of the required pieces on the table and noodles with how they will join together. Once all the required pieces have a home, the artistry begins by adding unique finishes and introducing a different mindset on storage.

ALL ABOUT:

The materials used to construct a residence are more than just the bones of the structure; they become the canvas for the treasures, both practical and decorative, that transform a house into a lovable home. A top trend of late is bringing the outdoors in, as more builders are incorporating natural stone and locally sourced materials in their projects. Yet most intriguing is the personal spaces where they are appearing: a stone wall in the bedroom, a log ceiling for the master bath and built-in brick shelving in the dining room, among others. These organic materials strengthen a home’s connection to the outdoors, a common objective among today’s designs, with scenic views and as much natural light as possible also ranking high on homeowners’ lists of musthaves. Read on to see how the right material can impact a space in the best way.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR SELECTING MATERIALS 1. Mimic elements found in local nature to provide environmental context to your home’s design. 2. Make an architectural feature, like a fireplace surround, kitchen island, front door or staircase, stand out by crafting it in an unexpected material. 3. Ensure the materials used in the furniture complement those found in the home’s structural elements. 4. To create a seamless eye-flow in a space, incorporate glass pieces, such as coffee and side tables. 5. Choose materials for the exterior façade that enhance the home’s surroundings rather than compete with them.

Architect Daniel Piechota designed a Carmel house to have two volumes connected by a bridge, which floats above an outdoor stairway joining the lower-level arrival area and a central courtyard. Connecting the house to its bucolic landscape, tight-knot cedar siding and cold-rolled reclaimed-steel panels clad the modern structure. “The exterior materials were put together with really fine detailing,” says builder David Stocker, “and that’s one of the things that makes this house fabulous.”

DAVID STOCKER Home Builder

Can you describe the wood used to clad this home (opposite)? This is western red cedar, which is common in our area. It’s very resistant to termites and weather, and it ages on its own to a very nice gray color. When installing, it was very important to use laser levels to maintain the straight lines around the whole house. How do you think the material choices affected the feel of the modern structure? The combination of the rustic materials soften the hard angles

and the expansive use of glass on the house. It’s very contemporary and light, but it’s still warm. What was the most memorable building material you’ve worked with? We built a very large house using rammed earth as the spine of the building. The other materials— steel and wood—radiated out from it. The material is beautiful and natural, but unforgiving. In what way have you seen materials evolve? We have so many engineered

materials now for the structure. They are straight and true and don’t shrink, so they allow some of the contemporary expressions and small reveals to work well. Which materials do you find are best suited to building in the Bay Area? The materials that work the best in our area are the ones that are found close by. They last in the weather here along the ocean, and the colors, because they are native, fit really well into the natural environment.

A distinctive materials palette helps define a contemporary house by architect Greg Faulkner, with interiors by designer Sarah Jones, in Northern California. Outside, hot-rolled steel and cedar siding, some of which was charred with a shou sugi ban technique implemented by builder Jim Morrison, clad the structure.

MATERIAL WORLD Few things prove as important to establishing the feel of a space than choosing the right materials. The organic warmth of a rammed-earth wall provides instant character, while the appearance of marble or concrete can transform a space with a modern or industrial lean. In addition to aesthetics, as professionals discuss here, the right materials can open up design possibilities, offer sustainable solutions and provide a tactile, hands-on connection with our built environment. Michael McCutcheon: When it comes to new technology, we have installed everything from “smart house” controls—Nest, Sonos, Philips Hue and Alexa Voice Service—to “smart glass,” which changes from clear to translucent at the flip of a switch. On the materials side, one of our new favorites is liquid-applied membranes, which are state-of-the-art in waterproofing. Products such as Prosoco Cat 5 Rain Screen not only keep the water out, but they also seal the building so well that it’s easy to meet the most rigorous standards for air infiltration, which is a big deal to green builders. Mary Ann Gabriele Schicketanz: A contemporary house, that’s basically a box, can be either really bad or really good, and it all hinges on proportions and material selection. There are so many advantages to

a modern house—the way it flows, the bigger openings—and the reason people often don’t like modern houses is that they can feel cold. So we try to balance a contemporary approach of composing a house with a rich materials palette. We design projects that have a very strong relationship to their environment, so we try to use materials that are from the site. In the case of this house (shown), it was literal, in that the stone we used was actually quarried from the property. Tim McDonald: I think all materials should be suitable to the area. We have a temperate climate, which allows us to use more innovative materials, but my love is for permanence. If every structure I build would last 500 years I would be happy. That would require a lot of concrete, stone and metals such as copper, zinc and stainless steel. LUXESOURCE.COM / 241

Architecture PHOTO: STEVE HALL/HEDRICH BLESSING.

Just like the best relationships start out with a solid foundation, so, too, do exceptional homes. Without good bones, there is little an interior designer or a landscape architect can do to transform a house from ordinary to extraordinary. It’s up to the architect to balance concrete and steel with the native site or find breathing room in a city brownstone by envisioning floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard. Architects are challenged with marrying exteriors and interiors to create a seamless look, anticipating how each space will need to function from the start and incorporating the right features to maximize the potential of every room. The structural details—clean lines, intricate woodworking or even a spiral staircase— are the first things to define the character of a house and some of the last things departing guests forget when they leave. Whatever the style, be it traditional or modern, a well-constructed abode should serve as a steadfast yet visionary beginning for a standout home.

Chicago architect Kathryn Quinn designed a Calistoga home with a layout that gives the feeling of having been added to over time. The materials also underscore that idea. “If a building was constructed at the turn of the century and then added onto 30 years later, the products would be different,” says builder Ryan Eames, who worked with partner and general superintendent Jack Wagoner on the house. “So we used different windows—some are black aluminum and some are clear anodized aluminum.”

In what way do you feel modern architecture, like this residence (shown), works with this locale? An open architecture plan allows for more access to light as well as more access to the landscape both physically and emotionally. This house is organized as two sheds with an open, fully glazed space between. Here, in that central space, one associates directly with the landscape, sun and weather. It feels outside, yet it’s fitted for comfort. And how important is the site? It’s critical. The site response is the driver for the design and orientation— an open or closed space, the massing of a structure, everything. The U-shaped courtyard in the back of this house captures both the view of the mountains and the warmth of the sun. The user is tucked inside the form, protected from the wind. These attributes had to be informed by the distant surroundings. What type of materials do you prefer to work with? We use local materials, like cedar trees that exist here in the landscape. Concrete is universally produced, so we also use it consistently. Is sustainable design often a consideration in your work? It’s inclusive of all aspects—orientation, glazing, systems, insulation, weather tightness and durability.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

From the trademark Victorians in San Francisco to the Eichlers of Marin County, the Bay Area has its fair share of eye-catching architecture. Today’s architects are continuing that tradition by crafting homes that honor the land—whether among the vineyards of the wine country, the redwood-dotted coast or the steep hills of the city—with forward-thinking structures attuned to the lifestyles of their clients.

Charlie Barnett: The inspiring beauty of the mature redwood forest at the back of the site had a huge impact on the design of this house (above). Walls of glass, high ceilings and natural materials allow the rooms to feel as though they are extensions of the landscape and really begin to communicate with the forested site. The scale of the entry door echoes the majestic scale of the trees, and the proportions of the rooms allow the spaces to flow in a way that connects the house to the land. Daniel Garber: Given the state’s requirements and building code, it is difficult to not design sustainably in California. Even so, sustainability is a special focus of our firm, and we have done research that has been presented at the U.S. Green Building Council. Many years ago we added a sustainability manager, who is an environmental engineer rather than an architect, to our staff because of our commitment to become better stewards of the built environment.

Steve Simpson: I think architecture in the Bay Area has been heading in a much better direction for the last five to six years. The local architecture has been trending much more modern, which I think is great, and substantially more sustainable and environmentally friendly. I would like to see it continue on this present course.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Charlie Barnett, Daniel Garber, Steve Simpson, Cass Calder Smith

Cass Calder Smith: The site is always very important. When designing houses in San Francisco, the slopes and the views of the sights always offer opportunities to work with. I like to be up high, so, when I can, I put living spaces near the tops of buildings for the best views and light. The Bay Area has very nice natural light and bringing that into spaces and using it to render the interiors is something I work on very much. For rural sites, the hilly topography is a different kind, but also sets things up to be interesting. A house on a hill is almost always more interesting than on flat land. LUXESOURCE.COM / 249

ALL ABOUT:

If there’s one room in the house that most embraces a homeowner’s personality, it’s the living room. This is where choices such as bold color and crazy patterns can come out to play and where a homeowner’s love of antiques, modern furniture or artwork are as welcome in the space as a close friend. Here, we look at the innovative ways designers are using accessories and statement furniture to create a customized style that’s both relaxing and inviting for family members and guests alike.

In designing the Pacific Heights home of a longtime client, designer Suzanne Tucker made strategic updates, including replacing the living room’s fireplace mantel with a 17thcentury French Louis XIII limestone version. She then appointed the space with a custom sofa and upholstered two chairs with Tamora Weave by Groundworks. An antique Sultanabad rug anchors the sophisticated room.

Above: Designer Jay Jeffers created a dynamic interior for a Cow Hollow condominium with vibrant shots of color and strategic uses of pattern. In the living room, for example, he had Willem Racké Studio give the walls a Venetian plaster treatment in robin’s egg blue and then chose an ikat-patterned rug by Tai Ping. He kept to solid fabrics for the sofa by Thomas Pheasant Collection for Baker and the Ironies armchairs. “I like to do one large dramatic print and then tone it down from there,” he says. Left: “The furnishings are artful, but all are used in day-to-day living,” says designer Kendall Wilkinson of the thoughtful selections she made for a Bay Area home. Inspired by the surrounding landscape, she worked with ochre-colored rugs and an understated palette to complement the area’s golden light. In the game room, sculptural pieces, including Warren Platner chairs and a custom Ironies drum table, bask in the sunlight from the room’s steel-framed window.

CREATING THE MOOD

It all starts in the living room. Often the focal point of the floor plan, this central space—whether formal or fun, classical or rustic—sets the stage for the feel of the house and establishes the aesthetic direction of what’s to follow. Here, designers share some thoughts on pulling together this important room and what it takes to make a stylish and comfortable living space.

Gina Gattuso: The clients’ love of France and the glamorous fashion sense of the wife inspired this living room (shown). We went with large-scale pieces to balance the room, and we created a pale background and then brought in drama with stripes and hues of hot pink. The living room should reflect how the client lives as well as set the tone for the whole house. This space is elegant yet casual with several seating areas.

LX_SF14_EOD_LivingSpaces.indd 257

Jacques Saint Dizier: Good lighting can change the character and ambience of any room. My three rules of lighting are: Never have a chandelier or pendant as the primary source of light; always try to use various lighting elements—down lights, pendants, lamps, sconces—to give the room a more dramatic feel; and everything should be dimmable. Pamela Babey: To start with, the size and shape of the room, the proportion and the location of the windows, the natural light and the balance of the room all must be evaluated. Of course, one must also understand what the client has in mind. A formal room? A relaxed room? Another hint can be the answer to the question: “Is there something special you want to include?” It’s nice to have an object to begin with, to build upon. From there, you start with a plan, which leads to imagining the activities in the room and images of the major pieces of furniture. Then the layers and the story just begin to unfold.

Designers Paul Vincent Wiseman and James Hunter worked within a rich palette of beiges, grays and golds for a Bay Area home, which features pillows made with a rust-and-gold Fortuny fabric resting on Plantation chairs in the living area. The fireplace panels echo the geometric motif established by the built-in shelving Wiseman and Hunter developed with architect Charlie Barnett.

Interior Designer

What was the starting point for the design of this living room (shown)? Function came first. The clients wanted a television in the living room, but they wanted it hidden over the fireplace. How did you approach the furniture plan? Again, function came first. It’s kind of like plants: They look the way they do because they have to function well in the climate in which they live. The clients like to entertain, and they have children. So everyone needs to be comfortable and have a place to put a drink. I feel proximity/distance is very important for people. Some people want their own chair, some want to perch, and some want to snuggle. Regardless of style, all rooms need to have these options. Do you usually design the living room to set the tone for the rest of the house? Yes. In this house, because the living room, dining room and kitchen are one, we took our cues from Charlie Barnett’s architectural design: bold and simple. What is the one thing that every living space needs? A place to be alone and a place to gather. Note the reading nook in this living room. It’s a large room, but you can lie down with a book with the fire going and feel like you have your own room within a room. LUXESOURCE.COM / 259

ALL ABOUT:

Whether your home sits upon an expansive waterfront lot or offers just a taste of the outdoors via a sky-high terrace, there’s no wrong way to enjoy a bit of fresh air, so long as you’re doing it in style. Outdoor spaces represent an extension of a residence’s interior and a homeowner’s personal aesthetic, and as such they should be approached with just as much care and attention to detail. What do you envision for the ideal sanctuary in the sun? Regardless of size, the opportunities are nearly endless—from a cozy gathering spot with an electric fireplace or fire pit to a water-lover’s paradise with an infinity pool or elements like a fountain and a soaking tub. Furniture pieces for alfresco dining and lounging are a must, while manicured landscaping with the perfect plants sets the overall tone. Here, experts offer their tips for designing your own great outdoors.

As part of the renovation of a Napa Valley residence, architect Andrew Mann designed a clean-lined, airy pavilion that was sited by landscape architect Scott R. Lewis to stand separate from the main house and enjoy views of the neighboring vineyards. Designer Kara Mann, who is based in Chicago and New York, appointed the space with an RH sofa and chairs, to create a sitting area, and Dedon chairs paired with an RH dining table.

“The outdoor space had fantastic bones, but we wanted to refine it and tailor it to the owners’ needs and style,” says landscape designer Stephanie Stillman Stephens of the backyard she revamped for a Pacific Heights Victorian. She kept the existing concrete walls and glass railings and added a stainless-steel kitchen and blackened-steel planters. Rosemary, creeping thyme and olive trees round out the plant palette.

ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR DESIGNING OUTSIDE

THIS PAGE: LEWIS PHOTO: MATTHEW MILLMAN. OPPOSITE: ERDMAN GARDEN PHOTO: R. BRAD KNIPSTEIN. WEBSTER HEADSHOT: DREW ALTIZER PHOTOGRAPHY.

1. Clearly define areas for different activities such as for dining, lounging or gardening. 2. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overcrowd the areas; allow for breathing room and space to wander. 3. Incorporate native plantings, which will appear to have grown naturally and thrive in the environment. 4. Be sure to provide cover from the sun when designing for the outdoors, so that guests will have a place to stay cool alfresco. 5. If you have a killer view, build the home around it and ensure it remains unobstructed when creating outdoor spaces.

For a Bay Area home set next to a grove of mature redwoods, landscape architect Scott R. Lewis cleared away underbrush from a section in the backyard to create a seating area circling a fire pit. Emmet lounge chairs from Room & Board surround the flame, and from there a pathway made of crushed granite twists through the towering trees.

Landscape designer Valerie Erdman of Terra Fina Design added a vegetable garden and a topiarylined border to the grounds of a European-inspired Marin County home. She had The Willow Farm create distinctive woven garden beds to hold the plants and centered them around an antique urn.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Whether looking out to towering redwoods or stretches of vineyards, the Bay Area’s topographical variety makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors. So it’s not surprising that design professionals, like those here, are making the most of these alfresco offerings, whether landscaping acres in the wine country or appointing a backyard in the city. Valerie Erdman: The vegetable garden (above) was designed in keeping with the overall formal European flavor of the rest of the garden. It is modeled on a foursquare plan, and an antique French urn acts as the central focal point. To soften the formality of the space, I added woven willow hurdles, which surround each of the four raised planting boxes. Woven willow is one of my signature materials, and I incorporate it whenever possible. There could be nothing more charming than a garden nestled in a basket. Jarrod Baumann: Right now, I’m loving the mosaic pebbles from a company called Solistone. We are creating an amazing labyrinth with agate pebbles standing on end that will be quite stunning. Also,

I’m obsessed with McKinnon and Harris outdoor furniture; it’s so elegant and well-crafted. For plants, I love anything with colored or variegated foliage, and sweet fragrant plants. Fragrances in the garden always conjure good memories.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Valerie Erdman, Jarrod Baumann, Katharine Webster

Katharine Webster: I design outdoor spaces that my clients will want to use on the most beautiful of days and on the dreariest of days. We actually have clients telling us all the time that they used the pool in the rain, sat under the pergola on a chilly, foggy morning, or kept toasty by the fire pit in an outdoor garden room; the outdoor experience felt more compelling to them than being inside. That is the power, and the allure, of an integrated outdoor space, thoughtfully designed to reflect the lifestyle of the client. LUXESOURCE.COM / 265

“There’s a Japanese philosophy of allowing things to unfold slowly rather than all at once, and that sense of layering is one of the most powerful parts of this project,” says landscape designer Bernard Trainor of the grounds he designed for a residence in Carmel. Crushed gravel and poured-in-place concrete pavers lead a covered outdoor sitting area toward a fire pit. Ornamental grasses and native plants abound.

Builder Philip Wilkinson constructed a Bay Area home, by architect Charlie Barnett and designers Paul Vincent Wiseman and James Hunter, that sports an expansive outdoor bathing area. Within the alfresco space a Barcelona tub by Concreteworks rests on poured-in-place concrete, and a Sand Dollar chaise by Link Outdoor perches on the adjacent ipe deck.

In designing the grounds for a 1915 Bay Area house, landscape architect Jeff George put in a bocce ball court, a putting green, and a fire pit and conversation area in the backyard. His challenge was, as he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;fitting in all of these contemporary uses, but also weaving them into the traditional aspects of the home.â&#x20AC;?

SHANAHAN EXTERIOR PHOTO: PAUL DYER.

To complement Ken Linsteadt’s Frenchinspired architecture for a home in Los Altos Hills, landscape designer Nancy Shanahan worked with ornamental grasses, red hot pokers, fruitless olive trees and ample amounts of lavender. “I wanted the landscape to root the house to the property,” she says. “It softens the strong lines with large unfussy drifts that lend texture and movement.”

NANCY SHANAHAN Landscape Designer

Do you have any favorite materials and plants that you usually work with? My go-to materials are definitely natural stone surfaces, lots of basalt boulders, dry creek beds lined with plantings and beautiful irregular cobbles, ipe accents and boulder fountains. For plantings I always turn to ornamental grasses and native shrubs. What inspired your design for this landscape? The owner wanted reminders of her earlier years in Provence, so we chose areas of gravel, grapevines, scrambling thyme, a bank of lavender and big drifts of ornamental grasses. Tell us about some of the elements in the backyard. Sycamores shade the gravel courtyard areaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a much-needed reprieve in the very sunny backyard. The interior courtyard was a nod to a French Provincial town square with its gravel, water fountain, olive tree and grape vines scrambling up the wall. What are the best ways to entice people to spend time outside? Build a sanctuary for them that can be seen from the house. Create a great place to sit out of the sun looking over the garden, and build in color, texture and movement. Build it, and they will come!

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