Q: What was your inspiration for starting a new division of Zeterre Landscape Architecture? JRB: We have had so many great opportunities at Zeterre, designing incredible gardens in cities all over the world. I have found that there is definitely a niche that needs to be met in the equestrian “arena”. So many landscape designers don’t understand the nuances of equestrian facilities. Our team absolutely knows what true equestrians want and need for their horses. Equestrian facilities don’t just have to be functional. There is so much opportunity for them also to be beautiful - if careful thought goes into master planning them!

Q: What equestrian properties inspire you the most? JRB: I love some of the ranches we have toured and worked on in Montana and Kentucky. Much thought is given to simple things like the fence color that compliments the trees during their fall color and the riding arena/rings that are surrounded by special trees that give seasonal interest. I have also done a great deal of research in the equestrian estates around Chateau Chantilly in France (that one designed by that wild aristocrat who thought he was going to be reincarnated as a horse, so he built the most amazing stables he could dream up...) there are some really great ideas found in that region.

Q: What kind of background do you have that helps you understand the equestrian community? JRB: I personally have been riding horses for as long as I can remember. I rode with my grandmother when I was a toddler and that feeling, that exhilaration of riding, has never wavered. I currently play polo every chance I get, I have competed in dressage, and have designed several very successful horse farms where they have loved that we knew the needs of the horse community and designed each detail, with that in mind. Additionally, each member on the team I have for Equus Nobilis, is an equestrian. They are artists, equestrians, and landscape architects.

We applaud the talented design professionals whose work enhances our environment, inside and out. I am, therefore, thrilled to present this special issue, recognizing the winners of our first annual Luxe RED Awards, honoring excellence, innovation and the best residential architecture, interior design and landscape architecture projects from across the country. Please join me in congratulating all of our winners! A big shoutout, as well, to our esteemed panel of judges: Ellie Cullman, Holly Hunt, Kathryn Ireland, Tom Kligerman and Paul Wiseman, who, along with me, whittled down 1,600+ entries and weighed in on the projects.

Phoenix | theranchmine.com

OUR TAKE: The rapidly urbanizing landscape of Phoenix lends itself to Cavin and Claire Costello’s innovative approach, which is driven by their pioneering spirit. Their three-pronged philosophy is: “Honor the past, challenge the norm and inspire the future.” IN THEIR WORDS: “Our work blends the vernacular influences of both historic and midcentury Arizona with modern desert living. Clean, powerful geometries use sun and shade to create dynamic simplicity with organic details.” FUTURE PLANS: The Costellos are starting to work on Aliado, a renovation and addition to a midcenturymodern house in Scottsdale, Arizona, originally designed by Charles Schreiber and Arthur Schreiber. The renovation opens up the house for indoor-outdoor living, and focuses on restoring the curb appeal in an area where tear-downs are all too common.

▼ JONATHAN FELDMAN

San Francisco | feldmanarchitecture.com OUR TAKE: Jonathan Feldman’s homes are akin to poetic odes: They pay tribute to Mother Nature, enhancing the natural beauty of a site. His designs aim to balance boldness with simplicity while always keeping an eye on sustainability. IN HIS WORDS: “Nature is so beautiful in Northern California, and we are lucky to be designing on some spectacular properties. Our clients tend to be very open-minded to new ways of thinking about design, and as a whole they are committed to minimizing their ecological footprint, which is so important to us.” FUTURE PLANS: On the heels of his first design of a restaurant in Oakland, Feldman is working on a funky Santa Cruz, California, surf house, corporate offices in the new Salesforce Tower and multiple Napa winery projects.

⊳ ANIK PEARSON

New York | aparch.net

OUR TAKE: Anik Pearson’s seasoned practice lends itself to historical preservation, residential projects and furniture design; her custom installations and metalwork case goods blend seamlessly into the spaces she creates.

MAX STRANG ▲

Miami | strangarchitecture.com OUR TAKE: You’ll recognize Max Strang’s work by his architectural signatures: deep overhangs and dramatic façades. His design style pays homage to the Florida modernism of his youth and its site-specific structures. IN HIS WORDS: “Modernism loves the tropics and subtropics. Bright sunlight and deep shadows enable bold designs with sharp, crisp lines. I really enjoy letting the sun-controlling features become the architectural identity of the building.” FUTURE PLANS: Strang and his team will soon begin construction on The Fairchild, a 26-unit boutique condominium project in Coconut Grove. With the addition of his new Sarasota office to his existing locations in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Strang is excited to support clients on his native coast.

LX_COM19_Radar_ArchitecturallySpeaking.indd 80

IN HER WORDS: “The people who live in New York City come from all cultures and provenances. There’s every type of building, from colonial and minimalist to traditional and contemporary. As a result, there is no lack of choice or inspiration for design projects.” FUTURE PLANS: An Upper West Side duplex apartment from 1919 offers Pearson the opportunity to showcase her clients’ art collection by recreating an historic artist’s studio inspired by the era’s American Beaux-Arts style.

⊳ JEFFREY ALLSBROOK AND SILVIA KUHLE Los Angeles | standardarchitecture.com

OUR TAKE: Homes by Standard Architecture beckon attention for their clean lines and imaginative structures. Led by partners Jeffrey Allsbrook and Silvia Kuhle, the team is not afraid to edit design down to its purest forms, welcoming people into spaces where shape and structure don’t overpower, but coexist. IN THEIR WORDS: “The Southern California climate and flora are paradisal. The sunlight is so consistent here that filtering it in different ways animates the interiors.” FUTURE PLANS: A large addition and remodel of a 1920s Spanish house is in the works, featuring a two-story library and atrium that integrates the original fireplace into new bookshelves. Plus, Standard just began work on a coffee shop on Hollywood Boulevard.

⊳ MELODY EMERICK

Portland | emerick-architects.com OUR TAKE: When drafting a plan, Melody Emerick visualizes how the space will truly be inhabited in order to understand the site and to make sure to include an element of humor. IN HER WORDS: “Portland is known for its depth of talented craftspeople, and we are so fortunate to be able to tap into these passionate individuals. Whether it’s an electrician helping us develop a new lighting system or a cabinetmaker executing a complicated wood detail, they are the ones who make our projects look great.” FUTURE PLANS: Emerick is working on a wellness center nestled in the scenic Columbia River Gorge area. She also just finished a remodel of a midcentury home with views of Lake Oswego.

CELESTE ROBBINS

Winnetka, IL | robbins-architecture.com OUR TAKE: Using a minimal yet warm aesthetic, Celeste Robbins celebrates natural light and materials in her work. IN HER WORDS: “Living near Lake Michigan is a constant reminder of the strength nature plays in our design dialogue. What’s most memorable in each design are timeless qualities of warmth, serenity and livability.”

JEFF PELLETIER ⊲

Seattle | boardandvellum.com

FUTURE PLANS: Robbins is working on a beachfront vacation home on Lake Michigan and a glassy modern home in Deerfield, Illinois—both of which feature open living spaces.

OUR TAKE: Since discovering Lego blocks at the age of 2, Jeff Pelletier knew he wanted to be an architect. He believes a tour of one’s home should take a long time—not because it’s large, but because there are details in each room that tell different stories worth sharing. IN HIS WORDS: “I really love that there is a great population of people in Seattle who are not only really proud of their city and region, but will fight to make sure that we protect them, both in terms of respecting the character of the built environment and by making sure we take care of the natural environment, too.” FUTURE PLANS: Board & Vellum is working on an interior design project for a local historic collegiate Greek house, as well as a horse sanctuary outside of Seattle and an urban park in North Seattle.

⊳ DILLON KYLE

OUR TAKE: DKA principal and founder Dillon Kyle brings a distinct contemporary style to a city characterized by heritage homes of traditional aesthetics. The firm’s affinity for sleek lines and open spaces creates homes and commercial sites that welcome second glances.

⊳ BURTON BALDRIDGE

Austin | baldridge-architects.com OUR TAKE: We subscribe to Baldridge Architects’ philosophy that buildings should be designed with a certain level of permanence in mind. Burton Baldridge believes spaces should stand the test of time. IN HIS WORDS: “There are so many talented small firms in Austin doing work with real meaning and importance. I live and breathe design, but I could do that anywhere. I can forgive Austin for its traffic and its blistering summers because, simply put, it is a great place to be.” FUTURE PLANS: Baldridge has residential projects in Wyoming and Fort Worth in the works, as well as the Arrive Hotel in East Austin.

LX_COM19_Radar_ArchitecturallySpeaking.indd 82

IN HIS WORDS: “Houston does not have a particularly remarkable landscape: It is not home to mountains or a dramatic coastline, so the setting presents an unusual opportunity for architecture to make a place more beautiful. Architecture must be sensitive and respectful to its setting. At the same time, it shouldn’t take itself too seriously.” FUTURE PLANS: Upcoming DKA projects include a kitchen remodel in a post-war traditional home, a high-rise penthouse unit and new construction residences with an outdoor living focus.

MATERIAL WORLD

RICH IN HISTORY, THESE THREE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS ARE CURRENT DESIGN-INDUSTRY DARLINGS. HERE, A CLOSER LOOK AT THEIR ONGOING APPEAL. WRITTEN BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

CONCRETE THOUGHT  It was over a century ago that Thomas Edison designed the first poured-concrete house. Years later, Frank Lloyd Wright made brilliant use of the material when he constructed Fallingwater, which was completed in 1937. By the 1970s, concrete had become the favored medium of the Brutalist architecture movement. These days, the versatile material is making a big impact in modern home features. Case in point: this sculptural staircase by Splyce Design.

Once a factory staple of the Industrial Revolution, steel casement-style windows went on to grace English Revival and Mediterranean-style homes of the 1920s before falling out of fashion for cheaper aluminum replacements. Today, designers and homeowners alike are smitten with the romantic look of the windows and doors, as seen here in a home by Texas builder Ben Coats. Lovingly salvaged or new, the multiple panes and delicate muntins work with a variety of architectural styles.

SURFACE VALUE  During the 15th century, thrifty Venetian workers discovered a new use for discarded chips of marble. They set the shards in clay to create colorful terraces around their own homes. Use of terrazzo peaked in the 1970s, but it appears to be on the rise again, thanks to artful interpretations in both interiors and furniture from manufacturers and designers, such as this kitchen by Inbetween Architecture.

MODERNIST MECCAS LUXE HIT THE ROAD IN SEARCH OF ARCHITECTURE NIRVANA AND FOUND IT IN THREE SMALL TOWNS RESPLENDENT WITH MIDCENTURY MASTERPIECES.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MICHELLE BRUNNER

Completed in 1956, the Boissonnas House is one of five significant houses in New Canaan by architect Philip Johnson. Consisting of a series of connecting steel, brick and glass pavilions, the home encourages a strong connection to nature, thanks to its expansive windows.

In the late 1940s, five architects who were linked to Harvard University settled in the Connecticut countryside, finding the rolling hills and low stone walls as attractive as the proximity to New York City. There, nestled among the white clapboard farmhouses and center-hall Colonials, they designed forward-thinking houses for themselves and like-minded neighbors. Known as the Harvard Five, the group consisted of Marcel Breuer, Philip Johnson, Eliot Noyes, Landis Gores and John M. Johansen. The houses featured open floor plans and lots of windows. At the time, locals had mixed reactions. When Johnson’s Glass House was completed in 1949, some were shocked by the structure’s transparency. One scandalized woman reportedly exclaimed, “I could never live in such a house!” To which Johnson famously quipped, “I never asked you to.” Over the years, about a quarter of New Canaan’s modernist homes were lost to demolition. Today, many of the remaining structures are being snapped up and meticulously restored by a new generation. “Thirty years ago, a lot of folks would have torn down these buildings,” says Hilary Lewis, chief curator of the Glass House. “Traditionally, if something is 25 years old, it’s considered old fashioned. Fifty years later, it’s beloved again. I think we are now at the right point in the cycle.” In May, the Iconic Houses Network will offer tours of several New Canaan midcentury houses that are usually not open to the public. aanmelder.nl/ihc2018. The Glass House is open May through November. theglasshouse.org

RADAR / ITINERARY

Next Stop: COLUMBUS, IN ⊲ This Midwestern town may be small, but it has an impressive reputation as an architectural giant, thanks to visionary and local businessman J. Irwin Miller. In 1934, Miller became the general manager of the Cummins Engine Company. A champion of modernism, he believed that great architecture could act as a role model for society, inspiring people to think boldly and strive for excellence. To that end, he established the Cummins Foundation, a public works program that brought to Columbus blue-chip architects such as Eliel and Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Richard Meier, Harry Weese and Eliot Noyes to design schools, libraries and offices. In town, you’ll find more than 70 noteworthy buildings and landscapes, along with seven national historic landmarks—including Miller’s own home, designed by Eero Saarinen, in collaboration with Alexander Girard and Dan Kiley. Watch last year’s indie film Columbus to witness the abundance of these buildings and their quiet yet breathtaking beauty. “When I walk across the plaza at twilight, I get a feeling of hope for humanity in my heart,” says T. Kelly Wilson, director of graduate studies in architecture at Indiana University. “I think that emotion has to do with the context. You’ve got this humble Midwestern town and there are these radical acts of human ingenuity peppering the landscape. The architecture in Columbus isn’t loud or flashy, but it’s extraordinary.” columbus.in.us

A rare residential jewel among Columbus, Indiana’s, outstanding architecture, the Miller House (left), designed by Eero Saarinen, gets a lively jolt of color from Alexander Girard’s bold interior furnishings. An elegant pair of green doors offers a whimsical welcome at this Palm Springs home (bottom, left). Designed by William F. Cody in 1962, the Abernathy House, (bottom, right) is another fine example of Palm Springs Desert Modernism.

According to the National Register of Historic Places, Palm Springs has the highest concentration of midcentury modern architecture in the United States, and it’s no wonder: Long before Elvis stayed in his honeymoon hideaway and Frank Sinatra partied into the wee hours at his Twin Palms estate, this desert town attracted some of the most forward-thinking architects of the modern era. Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright), for instance, designed a hotel there in 1923, and Rudolph Schindler, Albert Frey and Richard Neutra arrived in the 1930s and went on to create some of Palm Springs’ most iconic houses. “The desert has always been a destination for creatives,” says Robert Imber, owner of Palm Springs Modern Tours. “First, avant-garde artists came, then early Hollywood. In the 1940s, Charlie Chaplin and Claudette Colbert came to the desert seeking privacy from the paparazzi.” Later, the likes of Sinatra and his Rat Pack cronies put it on the map as a raucous retreat. This is the image of Palm Springs that looms large in most people’s minds. There’s a reason Slim Aarons’ photograph Poolside Gossip is a beloved emblem of desert modernism. It captures all of the sun-drenched grooviness of the era, showing two elegant women lounging in the backyard of Neutra’s stunning Kaufmann House with the San Jacinto mountains looming in the background. While many of the well-known houses are privately owned, several open their doors to the public during Palm Springs Modernism Week, a twice-yearly celebration of midcentury architecture and design.

J.B. BLUNK: NATURE, ART & EVERYDAY LIFE

Chile native and Sonoma resident Catalina Marin feels strongly about preserving cultures and traditions from the past, and it’s this passion to bring old-world techniques to light outside of her country that led her to launch Treko. The contemporary line of luxury textiles, whose name means “yarn of wool” in a native Chilean dialect, is handmade by artisans from the island of Chiloé using traditional weaving and knitting techniques dating back to the 16th century. Here, Marin reflects on design and creativity in the region. trekochile.com For inspiration: Living and traveling abroad makes you realize the differences and similarities between regions. The south of Chile, where my sister now lives, and Chiloé island influenced me to start Treko. It reminds me of Sonoma’s coastline and its coloring, ruggedness and natural way of living. In San Francisco, I love the de Young museum, the Exploratorium and the botanical gardens. Comforts of home: In my house, I like having simple, all-natural materials that make you feel something. I think I have wool in every single space. Its coziness and its aromas bring me back home. For the finer things in life: I love exploring places that carry handmade pieces. Sacramento Street is a great resource for that; I’m a big fan of March, Anthem and General Store. The Erin Martin Design Showroom in St. Helena is also exceptional. On your radar: I met Laine Justice about two years ago, and now she’s one of my favorite artists. Her painting and collage work is unique, detail-oriented and thoughtful. I also think ceramicist Richard Carter is both talented and humble at the same time. 084 / LUXESOURCE.COM

CELLAR NOTES ASHES & DIAMONDS WINERY

A love letter to the Napa Valley of the 1960s, everything at Ashes & Diamonds Winery merges both old-school and modern sensibilities—from the lighthanded, Burgundian approach to its wines to the midcentury-inspired architecture. So, when proprietor Kashy Khaledi tapped Silver Lake-based architect Barbara Bestor, she had a very specific vision in mind for the winery: modern with a vintage California aesthetic. “The design embodies a California manifesto of contemporary design, with nods to the Palm Springs postcard fantasy,” Bestor says. A folded-plate roof of prefabricated steel and porthole windows do just that, making a midcentury statement from the outside. Inside, the main tasting room boasts a living room vibe with blonde-wood tones, while sliding glass doors create an indoor-outdoor feel. ashesdiamonds.com

What better place for a retrospective of late NorCal craftsman J.B. Blunk than the Oakland Museum of California? It’s home to The Planet, which the museum commissioned the artist to make when it opened in 1969. The redwood sculpture, weighing in at 2 tons and still on permanent display, is the centerpiece of “J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life,” on view through September 9. Emphasizing the artist’s back-to-the-land creative approach, the show brings together more than 80 objects from Blunk’s oeuvre, including chainsaw-carved woodworks, abstract sculptures and jewelry. “He built our home by hand using all-salvaged materials,” says Blunk’s daughter, Mariah Nielson, who worked closely with curator Carin Adams on the exhibit. “My belief that art and design should be lived with, not made precious, comes directly from my father, who always encouraged visitors to utilize, touch and sit on his work.” museumca.org

INSIDE EDITION LUXE TAPPED FIVE BAY AREA LANDSCAPE PROFESSIONALS TO SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS ON CREATING INVITING OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES.

“We love to incorporate water features into our designs. There are infi nite possibilities when it comes to the aesthetics and sounds—from the overall style, material selection and scale, to placement and water flow. Done well, water features play into our senses and can make people feel differently about being in or passing through a space.”

“It’s important to think about how you use your interior rooms and design the garden as a series of outdoor spaces that are extensions of the inside. Many of our clients need a respite from the everyday chaos of running their companies, so we design healing gardens that delight the senses and take them back to square one.”

“We invent landscapes that are modern and about the future—those that harvest water, generate energy, incorporate technology and adapt over time. I like to incorporate electrical and mechanical elements into our work: moving doors and windows, sliding and pivoting seating and screens, and pumps to move and atomize water.”

“Our clients are looking to expand the boundaries of their living spaces by creating outdoor rooms to live within their gardens. If a space lacks a view, I’ll create a ‘wow’ factor with a fabulous focal point, be it a beautiful tree, a garden antique or a piece of modern sculpture.”

“We see the garden as a forum for the imagination to wander. The history of color theory—from Rudolf Steiner to Josef Albers—provides insight for us into how tones shape a space. Planting often allows for variability of hues and textures. Of course, color is really light and, ultimately, the great light feature is fire, which shows up in many of our projects.”

NIDO LIVING

When did you open? We opened in the Design District in 2013. What’s in the name? Nido is Italian and Spanish for “nest”—we see the way a nest is built as a metaphor for furnishing a home or office. Why focus on European design? Aesthetically, my business partner, Tammy Tran, and I are both drawn to the quality and sophistication of European furniture, lighting, closets and wall systems. Some of our best sellers are lighting by Gallotti & Radice, dining tables by Riva 1920 and Draenert, and Arketipo’s Atlas sofa. What’s new for summer? We recently added two lines that will be in the showroom in June. Rimadesio offers closets, wall systems and interior doors constructed mainly from glass and aluminum. Agape is a luxurious line of bathroom products and furnishings from Italy. nidosf.com

San Francisco heritage furniture brand McGuire joins forces with architecture design firm Marmol Radziner in an exciting collaboration between two iconic West Coast brands. Inspired by the lush canyons of Los Angeles, the Canyon Collection blends natural materials with elemental forms and is McGuire’s most modern and architectural collection to date. “Energized by McGuire’s long-standing history expressing the region’s aesthetic and their reputation for impeccable craftsmanship, we sought to design pieces that would suit a canyon home and a relaxed California lifestyle no matter where a person resides,” says design principal Ron Radziner. The 24-piece line features McGuire’s signature natural materials—solid oak, white bronze, natural rawhide and planed rattan—in contemporary new ways that are rooted in Marmol Radziner’s modern architectural approach. mcguirefurniture.com

CHECK IN LUXE PREVIEWS THREE CONTEMPORARY BAY AREA HOTELS WITH FRESH INTERIORS AND IMPRESSIVE BAR AND RESTAURANT DESIGNS TO MATCH.

▲ HOTEL NIA

▲ HOTEL KABUKI Why we love it: Anyone who remembers Hotel Kabuki pre-renovation will notice one key difference upon entering the lobby: sun streaming in through expansive factory-paned windows. The once-dark, moody interior is now filled with natural light. It’s all part of Brooklynbased Mark Zeff Design’s reimagining of this iconic Japantown property. Blending a bohemian aesthetic with contemporary Japanese design, the interior offers a nod to the hotel’s heritage with elements like shou sugi ban wood and shibori-dyed fabrics, plus guest rooms with gallery walls featuring traditional and modern Japanese art and calligraphy. The lobby feels like a stylish friend’s living room, complete with a library and vintage European tripod lamps. “Using a simple restrained palette of black and blonde wood allowed us to layer in more eclectic details in the furnishings and rugs,” says lead project designer Stacie Meador. Wine and dine: A trellised ceiling of rough-hewn Douglas-fir beams and reclaimed Czech factory pendant lamps make a bold statement in the Bar at Hotel Kabuki. jdvhotels.com

▲ THE SANDMAN Why we love it: A trendy hot spot for a weekend getaway, The Sandman is a throwback to roadside inns popular in the 1960s. Throughout the hotel, warm earth tones are punched up with pops of peach, palm green and navy. “At the Sandman, we really wanted to create a property that carried the spirit of carefree summer days,” says designer Brian Smith of Studio Tack. Coffered ceilings inlaid with mirrored squares and solid brass sconces lend a modernist feel to interior spaces. One-of-a-kind elements—including a rose-tinted mirror with hand-painted silk fibers and mohair by Ben and Aja Blanc from The Future Perfect—mix custom with antique. “When we found this Eames-inspired tubular chrome-and-leather chair, we knew The Sandman’s lobby had to have it,” Smith says. Wine and dine: Perfect for summer lounging, the Pool House & Bar beckons with a cozy indoor-outdoor space of rattan sofas and ottomans just off the property’s heated pool and hot tub. sandmansantarosa.com

Why we love it: A reflection of its Silicon Valley surroundings, Hotel Nia embodies the spirit of the area through a balance of art, science and technology. “We were inspired by the entrepreneurial innovation that is the essence of Silicon Valley and how it is influencing the world,” says designer Colum McCartan of McCartan design firm. The interiors of the 11-story glass building blend high-tech and high-touch with innovative elements like a digital “do not disturb” system and fabric panel headboards with bedside lighting in each room. The hotel’s glass façade fills the interior with natural light to complement Calacatta marble floors, Venetian-style plaster walls and brushed-metal details throughout. Wine and dine: A symbol of Mediterranean culture and hospitality, Porta Blu (meaning “blue door”) is named after its namesake design feature. As an extension of this greeting, blue doors hang from the ceiling throughout the restaurant. The menu celebrates Northern California’s ties to the Mediterranean. hotelnia.com

FOR THE LOVE OF TRENDS From vibrant color palettes and curved furniture to textured wallcoverings and metallic touches, trends are always evolving. Las Vegas Summer Market’s “Ahead of the Curve” program exclusively previews what’s new in the home furnishings and design world. Three top interior designers and “Ahead of the Curve” panelists share the trends they're loving and incorporating into their design projects.

“I’m thrilled to see a trend in dark and moody interiors made livable by organic and natural textures." Amber Lewis

Amber Interiors, Los Angeles, CA

“Out with the basic and in with the exceptional!” Laura Umansky

Laura U Interior Design, Houston, TX

“I am seeing a shift from loud prints to quiet texture, earthy colors and surface comfort.” Brian Paquette

Brian Paquette Interiors, Seattle, WA

Currey & Company Mariette Wall Sconce

Roost Home Collection

Palecek Capitola Counter Barstool

Noir Agamemnon Chair

ORGANIC ELEMENTS

SCULPTURAL LIGHTING

UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE

“Every year that I visit Las Vegas Market, I’m taken aback by all of the creativity. Right now, I’m particularly inspired by organic and natural touches that elevate dark and moody spaces. I have always been a true believer in a more homemade approach to decor, so the ability to source found objects and products made of organic materials makes LVM a great resource.”

“Say goodbye to traditional table lamps and conventional crystal chandeliersÑ sculptural lighting is an exciting trend and a must in my interiors. I look for inspired forms, new materials and gorgeous finishes—monumental and statement-making pieces. These two fixtures embody all of these elements. I can’t wait to use them in one of my upcoming projects!”

“A growing trend that I am incorporating into my work is, for lack of a better word ... quiet. People value comfort and are taking a more thoughtful approach to living. With that said, I am stepping away from bold patterns and embracing pieces with daring curves and material juxtaposition that make a subtle but dignified statement.”

Las Vegas Market is open to the trade only, July 29 – August 2, 2018. Don’t miss the Las Vegas Market and Luxe Interiors + Design “Ahead of the Curve” trend presentation on July 31st. Register online at lvmkt.com/Luxe

INSIDE Out OUR EDITORS REFLECT ON FURNISHINGS FIT FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS.

PRODUCED BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALICE GAO

PAMELA JACCARINO

VICE PRESIDENT, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

A hammock offers… A fresh perspective on your surroundings. It has a purposeful anxiety-evaporating design: There’s a certain freedom and romance in the notion of being suspended midair, lying on your back and swinging to and fro. The color… Extracted from plants and minerals, is handdyed, which infuses the yarn with its own wonderfully imprecise hue. On craft: I love that this classic cradle is made by hand in collaboration with skilled artisans in El Salvador who use old-world handweaving techniques. Dedication to craft is a design trait I admire. The Delmi Hammock… Is an “analog” retreat, a crocheted midair breather. I would relax into it (sans tech device) for a bit of daydreaming before curling up with a classic novel—followed by a proper afternoon nap! I would place this hammock... In my backyard garden, under our majestic Royal Poinciana tree. My favorite outdoor pursuit... Is a strenuous hike in the woods, which I consider a tonic for the spirit.

SWING TIME THE PIECE: Delmi Hammock THE DESIGNERS: Robert James Ramirez and Melissa Riling FIND IT: pouch.nyc THE INSPIRATION: A young company with an oldworld touch, Brooklyn-based Pouch utilizes classic techniques of Central America to weave hammocks that suggest easy living amongst the chaotic lifestyle of metropolitan cities. The designs are elevated; the brand uses beautiful hand-dyed fabric and intricate patterns to create space-defining pieces that add movement and physicality to otherwise still environments. With roots in Chalate, El Salvador, Pouch’s corporeal approach inspires a more fluid living style.

ROCK ON THE PIECE: Kantan Rocker THE DESIGNER: Tadao Inouye FIND IT: brownjordan.com THE INSPIRATION: These rockers have history. Late Japanese designer Tadao Inouye originally created this award-winning chair in 1956 for Brown Jordan, and it is just as relevant today. Updated with a brass form and Suncloth straps in a mélange of colors, the reinvented Kantan Rocker is at once minimalist and boldly sculptural. The fluid shape echoes the movement of water, while the lattice weave resembles a precisely laid stone patio; it is this juxtaposition that makes the design a chameleon that can blend and interact with many aesthetics.

LISA BINGHAM DEWART

HOMES EDITOR, LOS ANGELES AND PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Five words to describe these chairs: Surprising, bright, fun, colorful and comfortable. The Kantan Rocker… Has the right amount of midcentury flavor combined with a modern approach to color. I describe my aesthetic as… Midcentury Gothic. I live in a 1931 Spanishstyle house, which still has a lot of its original metalwork and tile, but tend to gravitate to midcentury design in terms of furnishings. I’m also a big fan of color—one of my favorite pieces is our bright orange kitchen table my husband had custom-made. You’ll also find in my home a ton of art and design books we’ve collected, liberally sprinkled on most surfaces. Color is… Always the way to my heart. But, I think balance is incredibly important. Generally, for a project to grab me, it needs to have a point of view and tell a compelling story. I love outdoor living areas that… Bring a jolt of color into the landscape, whether it’s through bright cushions or pillows, an outdoor rug or a fun powder-coated finish.

SHANNON SHARPE

HOMES EDITOR, NEW YORK AND CHICAGO

At first sight: This is a perfect casual-entertaining piece for summer parties. Outdoor furniture should never be too precious. I would place it… On the patio of a villa somewhere on the beach in Southeast Asia—maybe Koh Samui in Thailand. I envision this bar cart pulled up next to me holding a cocktail and treats while I lounge in a hammock looking out at the ocean. The exterior space of my dreams… Would be centered on entertaining, so this item would obviously play a role. One also can’t forget the point of being outdoors is to enjoy the natural beauty, so mine would be filled with flora and fauna, and the furniture would incorporate as many organic materials as possible. I enjoy being outdoors… Even more during the evening than the daytime. I love watching the beauty of a summer sunset with friends and then gathering around a fire pit and talking late into the night. To me, that is the perfect alfresco experience. The best indooroutdoor transition occurs when… The architect, interior designer and landscape architect worked together as team, rather than separate entities.

LX_COM19_Market_Spotlight.indd 154

HAPPY HOUR THE PIECE: Bar Cart THE DESIGNER: Henrik Pedersen FIND IT: gloster.com THE INSPIRATION: The bar cart continues to reign in popularity as a musthave in well-designed interiors of varying styles, and Henrik Pedersen’s model for Gloster takes the trend outdoors. His exhibits a mastery of restraint and a celebration of natural materials: The cart is constructed in teak, with soft joints where the wooden elements meet, and the trays are inspired by pebbles from the beach, molded and tumbled by the natural forces of the ocean. Much like a softly shaped stone, the piece has a tactility to it, drawing us in to trace the clean lines and examine each detail.

DINNER PARTY THE PIECE: Daybreak Round Dining Table THE DESIGNER: Marc Kurlander FIND IT: linkoutdoor.com THE INSPIRATION: Designer Marc Kurlander was inspired by the symmetry and repetition found in the contours of succulents to create the intriguing base of the Daybreak Round Dining Table, which is made of conjoined teak and stainless steel. Kurlander’s background in pottery and industrial design fostered a rich understanding in the constraints of different materials and the processes that contribute to varying outcomes of form and feel. The shape and details of oftenoverlooked elements—such as succulents—frequently influence his work, which often utilizes natural materials.

My first impression of the Daybreak table… Is its contrasting materials and how effortlessly the teak and steel join forces to create such a sleek yet functional outdoor piece. It’s a fresh take on a go-to item. Where it belongs: This table would make a statement in an outdoor dining space for owners who desire the durability of teak but with a little more “oomph” in the design. Because of its clean lines and the band of steel on each leg, I can see this table working well in the exterior space of a more modern or contemporary home. But the silhouette also makes it conducive to any traditional setting. When it comes to head-turning design… Furniture need not make a loud statement to qualify as a “statement piece.” I’m a true believer in the impact of a classic item made new again through a subtle twist. Sometimes the simplest things make the biggest impressions. I’m always on the lookout for... Materials and furnishings that bring the beauty, comfort and ease of a well-designed indoor space to the outdoor experience.

POT LUCK THE PIECES: Ando Planters THE DESIGNER: Joannah Kornak FIND IT: hollyhunt.com THE INSPIRATION: Executive creative director of Holly Hunt, Joannah Kornak believes these planters are an absolute necessity. They are the result of her own Goldilocks tale: After a hunt for new and exciting pieces to hold greenery proved disappointing, she created her own that are just right. Kornak’s approach to designing for outdoor living hinges on harmony with nature, durability and fun, all projected through an innovative and unexpected fusion of materials. Here, frosted resin and deep, blackened steel starkly contrast with the organic contents of the vessels.

MARY ORE

HOMES EDITOR, ARIZONA

What catches my eye… Is the surprising palette that’s an about-face from the standard-issue planter shades of gray, white and terra cotta. On the form: Kornak has a gift for creating clean, contemporary pieces with an element of the unexpected. The simple lines fall into the “less is more” spectrum of elegance. Looking at the colors… The lavender and chia shades are versatile enough to work all year round, indoors or outdoors, and offer a pleasing contrast to the green foliage the pieces are designed to hold. About the material selection: The powder-coated steel bases offer ballast in terms of color and material to the vessels, whose resin surfaces have a serene opacity. They are innovative because… Even something so simple as a hue decision becomes a design statement when it comes to planters. For the colorways, Kornak makes sure you’re spoiled for choice: They also come in blood orange, lemon, marsh, ocean, sky and deep sea. All shades pair perfectly with Holly Hunt’s Great Outdoors textiles. The impression they leave: The Ando planters read as chic, modern and restrained.

SIT BACK THE PIECE: Virginia Bench with Herringbone Back THE DESIGNERS: Anne and Will Massie FIND IT: mckinnonandharris.com THE INSPIRATION: The brother-sister duo behind McKinnon and Harris are antiquarians by nature who believe the garden is the extension of the home. With this in mind, they designed the Virginia Bench as an ode to their first collection, released in 1991, which featured benches inspired by the Regency style popular in England in the late-18th and early-19th centuries. This piece brings the look into the present with contemporary elements such as a complex curbing crest rail and tapered front legs.

LX_COM19_Market_Spotlight.indd 160

BRITTANY CHEVALIER MCINTYRE HOMES EDITOR, MIAMI AND PALM BEACH

On the brand: McKinnon and Harris have always reimagined traditional notions of structure and form without making their pieces appear anachronistic or unconventional. The piece is reminiscent of… The garden bench crafted by the renowned 20th-century English architect Edwin Lutyens, who imaginatively adapted traditional architecture to suit the styles of his day. To me, outdoor living is… About taking a moment to absorb your natural surroundings and exist in the present—enjoying a thrilling page-turner while basking in the sun’s ethereal rays or conversing with family and friends over a sunset cocktail. My dream outdoor space… Consists of grass, a small field of wildflowers and a lattice-covered pergola with wisteria and bougainvillea growing above. This isn’t too much to ask, right? What’s trending: Homeowners are striving to do everything outside they can do inside, so recently I have seen many outdoor cooking areas with pizza ovens and high-end appliances that are often found inside the home.

GENSUN Whether furnishing an outdoor space or dream outdoor kitchen, designers and homeowners look no further than Gensun, the one-stop showroom for everything outdoor living. “We manufacture everything in the catalog,” says president Jan Trinkley, referring to Gensun’s expansive collections of outdoor furniture, kitchens, fire pits, accessories and more. “This gives us the ability to control quality from beginning to end.” It’s a unique proposition for a unique company that differentiated itself 17 years ago, creating the best in cast-aluminum furniture. Since then, it has evolved to mix and match materials, including extruded, stamped and wrought aluminum with woven materials, capturing beautiful detail in every design. No matter the material, Gensun’s commitment to durability, comfort and low maintenance remains. As outdoor entertaining trends, Gensun delivers with new offerings, such as swivel lounge chairs, balcony-height fire pits, and custom options to create any look one desires.

ALL ABOUT ALUMINUM Every Gensun product is framed in aluminum. More expensive than steel, aluminum is lighter in weight, doesn’t rust and holds up extremely well in the elements. “We use the highest-quality cast aluminum, alloy 356,” Trinkley says. “Other companies say cast aluminum but cast aluminum comes in many varieties.”

EXPRESSIONS BY WEATHEREND If bringing yacht construction integrity to outdoor furniture wasn’t enough, Weatherend takes its old-world traditions to new design heights with Expressions. Custom in more ways than one, the Expressions line comprises seating, tables and cabinetry—each carrying its own “expression,” often inspired by geography, symbolism or the environment. Take the “Santa Fe” with its Southwestern flair or “Ebb & Flow,” drawn from the ocean’s changing tides. Aside from the line’s 30 to 40 standard expressions, it pushes further, giving designers the ultimate creative license to specify any “expression” they want. “Designers often want to complement an environment and express their vision,” owner Gil Harper says. “Not only do we create what they need, but we provide a three-dimensional image in advance to ensure their design objectives are met.” From a mega-yacht on the West Coast to a client in Nantucket, the applications for the Expressions line are endless … as are its design possibilities.

THE ULTIMATE ‘EXPRESSION’ OF DESIGN: NO LIMIT TO THE IMAGINATION Weatherend expands on its tried-and-true forms with the new Expressions line. Honoring the centuries-old traditions of the past, its pieces speak to the future with these standout features: + Express elegance, substance, durability and heirloom quality + Built in Maine with yacht-building techniques + Feature Weatherend’s yacht finish for ease of maintenance + Made of a marine composite material for ultimate durability + Come in standard and completely custom designs + Provide an affordable option for fully customized outdoor furniture + Give designers a broader palette to choose from + Complement all Weatherend product lines + Available in unlimited color and exterior wood options TOP.

ZEPHYR San Francisco-based Zephyr has been at the forefront of the industry for the past 20 years with performance and design-driven ventilation hoods. Adding to its Core, Designer and Pro Collections, Zephyr makes an indelible mark in the pro-style category with the new Titan hood. Delivering more power, using less energy and featuring a virtually silent motor, Titan is arguably Zephyr’s most forward-thinking hood to date. “This year, we wanted to create a less boxy, pro-style hood; a more low-profile design with beveled edges that would house the latest technology,” president Luke Siow says. While the consumer focuses on kitchen design more than ever before, Zephyr responds, giving home chefs every option to meet their cooking needs—from its groundbreaking new PowerWave™ blower technology and electronic LCD controls, to LED lighting and more. In classic Zephyr style, Titan elevates the kitchen hood to a new level of design and technology.

TITAN + POWERWAVE™ TECHNOLOGY: THE ULTIMATE WORKHORSE PowerWave™ Blower: The ultra-quiet, 750 CFM PowerWave™ blower with optional 1,300 CFM dual-blower upgrade is easily the most powerful internal blower on the market today. Five Size Options: From 36 inches up to 60 inches to accommodate even the largest pro-style ranges. Pro Baffle Filters: Titan includes oversize professional baffle filters with a grease collection tray for no-mess cooking. 6-Speed Electronic LCD Control Panel: “We simplified this feature, so it’s intuitive,” Siow says. “When you need to change the filter or update any other feature, the display spells it out.” And 6 speed controls give consumers every noise level option, from loud to undetectable. Airflow Control Technology™: ACT™ allows the installer to limit the maximum CFM to meet local codes without compromising on design. LED Lighting: New directional LED lighting can be positioned to accommodate different cooking areas. TO SEE MORE, VISIT LUXESOURCE.COM/ALLACCESS

NATURAL

FORCES MOTHER NATURE INSPIRES THE DESIGN FOR THESE AIRY, CHIC KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

Though the physical location and chosen aesthetic of these spaces may diverge—a modern kitchen on Texas’s Llano River; a master bath in Kona, Hawaii, with an organic feel; a fashionable poolside shower in Brentwood, California—the point of inspiration is singular: nature. Each space argues that high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms should expand outdoors and do so seamlessly. Take, for example, this kitchen by Austin-based architect Michael Hsu. “My clients wanted a house that blended into the landscape,” says Hsu, who employed generous sliding glass doors and windows, and a material palette that mirrors its waterside locale. On the following pages, we focus on nature-oriented interiors as well as the latest materials celebrating this connection, including a hard-wearing kitchen work surface suited for alfresco use, an open-air dining set with a designer’s touch, a classic favorite counter stool in a new, on-trend color, and more. Here, we make the case for integrating the outdoors into our busiest spaces. luxesource.com / 175

OUTDOOR VOICES MICHAEL HSU

Oneness with nature was not simply the inspiration behind architect Michael Hsu’s design of a reimagined fishing camp in Mason, Texas: “It was the founding principle,” he explains. An organic materials palette juxtaposes a mostly modern kitchen scheme, all set to a framed backdrop of the Llano River. Hsu walks us through the space. hsuoffice.com Describe how your client wanted the space to feel. They originally had a fish camp on the property, where they came every summer. They didn’t want to lose that feeling or connection with nature, so the house is primarily glass with as little structure as possible so as not to obstruct views to the landscape.

What are some tricks for creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space? Lots of glass with large sliding doors is the obvious answer. But I think what makes for a smoother transition between the spaces is the furniture that bridges them together. Blurring the line between the inside-outside activities so you don’t sense you have moved from one area to the other can be done simply with the furniture arrangement, as if the glass didn’t exist.

photo: wynn myers.

How did the furniture and finishes keep with this sentiment? Materials like the stone were selected from local sources, while the majority of the remaining façade is glass to make the house more transparent. The goal of the furniture was comfort and authenticity. The palette reflects the natural environment of the Llano River.

There are few more obvious examples of indoor-outdoor design than this Kona, Hawaii, bathroom by San Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis. “We wanted to avoid literalism while exploring the theme of locality,” she says. “You won’t find palm-frond designs, wicker or ukuleles in this space.” Instead, Hollis employs elements like an open-plan scheme, varying natural wood tones and a sleek vanity to reinforce the outdoor connection. “The home reflects what Hawaii means to the client,” she says. “They relax here, entertain and celebrate being together and living in the outdoors.” nicolehollis.com

Here, she shares her fondness for dining en plein air and her tricks for creating the ideal outdoor dining space. charlottemoss.com “Childhood memories of picnics and dinners on the patio are among the reasons I love alfresco meals. As a designer, I approach setting the outdoor table as another chance to decorate. I collect whatever is available from the garden for centerpieces, such as topiaries (as seen at right), roses with tomato leaves, white cosmos with lady's mantle or even just a handful of hosta leaves. There are a number of ways to create an intimate, enclosed space for dining outdoors: Vine-draped pergolas are one way to define an area. Adding potted plants to the corners of a terrace help to frame the space, while planted hedges impart an air of a secluded garden, lending a sense of mystery.�

AND ZEN East Hampton, New York-based firm Landscape Details employed hedges to frame this property and create interlocking spaces for art and ancient artifacts the clients collected over the years during their extensive travels. Surrounded by a verdant backdrop of lush greenery, a stone pagoda statue sits at the end of a gravel path, providing a stunning focal point perfect for reflective moments. landscapedetails.com

Chic side tables shouldn’t be relegated to interiors. Drawing on global inspiration for his outdoor collection, designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard created a sculptural perch that looks like a treasure one might find in a Marrakesh marketplace. Equally suited to hold mint tea or margaritas, it’s crafted from brass, which will oxidize when exposed to the elements, developing a darker patina over time. frontgate.com

What’s better than one showstopping place to unwind? Two, of course! For this decked-out bi-level chill zone, Beverly Hillsbased landscape designer Christine London extended the interior spaces of a Los Angeles home to create exterior rooms for gatherings both large and small. The upper fireplace offers an area to convene before or after dinner, and sits adjacent to the outside kitchen and dining area, while the lower level is next to the spa and master bedroom for easy access on any night. “Utilizing a hillside that was previously inaccessible, the design creates interest in the level changes and gives the property diversity,” says London. “We wanted to design areas that could expand for entertaining or be intimate and cozy, according to need.” Mission accomplished. christinelondonltd.com

HOT

SPOT Having a front door that opens to a side yard rather than a front yard is an unusual feature on any house. Barker Evans Landscape Architecture decided to make the most of it and turn the unremarkable side lawn of this Chicago-area home into an inviting courtyard. Now an outdoor dining space and a fire bowl greet guests at the door and sit adjacent to a new addition by Robbins Architecture. “The materials reflect the original limestone foundation, but the large dimensional cut pavers and pea gravel give it an updated, contemporary feel,” says partner and landscape architect Kris Barker. barker-evans.com

HEAVENLY ANGLES This San Francisco urban garden from Arterra Landscape Architects was designed as much to be gazed upon from above as to be utilized and enjoyed—the main living level of the house looks directly down on this space. In addition, an existing stairway from that level down to the garden was set at a 62-degree angle. “Rather than fight it, we aligned the whole design with that angle,” says partner and landscape architect Gretchen Whittier. Graphic interest is created from alternating strips of stone paving with pebbles, while reflective orbs lend a sculptural element. arterrasf.com

PAULINA OLDENBROOK Paulina Oldenbrook Interior Design 485 Magnolia Avenue Larkspur, California 415.941.4222 paulina@paulinaoldenbrook.com paulinaoldenbrook.com The name Paulina Oldenbrook has become synonymous with high style and multifaceted collaboration. One part principal designer, one part boutique owner and curator, Oldenbrook offers homeowners the ultimate design experience. She’s the creator behind Paulina Oldenbrook Interior Design and Paulina Oldenbrook Home & Design. While the studio and storefront offers a carefully crafted selection of home furnishings, accessories, lighting and more, the firm provides the team to bring it together. Through it all, Oldenbrook aims to emphasize practical luxury and focus on the client’s personality. “It is incredibly satisfying, to me, to be a part of a team that transforms someone’s life and home in positive and dramatic ways,” she says. “I am blessed to be able to participate in my clients’ life stories.” No matter the scope or style of the project, Oldenbrook and her team approach each client’s vision with dedication to their motto: “Do it once and do it right ... every time.”

I possess a passion for transformation and improving the quality of everyday life. Milestones in your firm’s success? Most recently, I unveiled a new collaboration of furniture, fabrics and accents with Williams Sonoma Home. One thing your clients would be shocked to know about you? I have a secret addiction to Hallmark movies and TV shows about weddings. I love, love! Dream creative project? I like Andrew Skurman’s classical architectural traditions of French château, Mediterranean villas and Georgian country homes, and Robert A.M. Stern’s contemporary classical architecture. It would be a dream to collaborate with them. Travel destination that has most influenced your work? Napa Valley has influenced many of my projects, including Marvelous Spring Mountain and Charming Chalk Hill. I’m also inspired by the manor houses and cottage-style homes in England, which can be seen in my Mesmerizing Mill Valley and Exquisite Equestrian Ranch projects. What are your design pet peeves? Why? Open shelving in kitchens really bothers me. It photographs well and looks cool, but the reality is that the shelves get dusty and have to be styled constantly to look right. My other pet peeve is over-accessorizing. Fierce editing is key.

JOHN GRABLE ARCHITECTS ⊲ National Winner, Major Restoration or Renovation This innovative single-family residence in San Antonio was renovated with sustainability and the historic context of its neighborhood in mind. Much consideration was given to the site to help reduce impact. Hence, some former elements of the previous 1948 structure were incorporated into the new design. Passive systems utilizing neighborhood archetypes were also implemented to produce shading and reduce solar gain.

Inspired by the surrounding landscape, interior finishes include rammed-earth walls, CorTen steel and sympathetic colors. Low-maintenance and human-scaled, this home celebrates palpable nature and a stylish sense of place.

Signature Kitchen Suite’s new pro range series—available in both 48- and 36-inch configurations—features groundbreaking technology that makes even the trickiest techniques easy to handle, thanks to the versatility of its built-in capabilities, such as a cooktop chromium griddle and Ultra-Low™ burners.

MENU-PLAN AROUND THE CULTURE OF REAL FOOD: Embrace the notions of simplicity, authenticity and locally grown ingredients enjoyed at their peak. Dishes should ideally contain two to three flavors so you can taste the different elements. BE THOUGHTFUL ABOUT LIGHTING: Dim bulbs and let candles set the ambience. A mix of round votives, pillar candles and taper candles­­—lit at different intervals 20 minutes before guests arrive—ensures they burn at various heights. FORAGE FOR FLORALS: Skip fancy arrangements and go for an unexpected look. Cut your own flowers, greenery and branches, and arrange them in unusual vessels. CURATE YOUR TABLESCAPE: Mix and match for an interesting vibe. Pair a solid-colored charger with a dinner plate that has a fun pattern, and work in vintage utensils, which will also help bring a sense of culture and history to the proceedings. GUESTS WILL WANT WINE, BUT DO ALSO PLAN TO GREET THEM WITH A SPECIAL DRINK: A welcome self-serve tequila cart or champagne bar poised at the entrance of your home makes for a bit of whimsy and sets the mood for what’s to come.

Large windows, a tall glass door and a skylight, from which gleaming copper cookware cleverly descends, usher in sunlight.

KITCHEN TOOLS for HEALTHY COOKING LOAD UP ON KITCHEN STAPLES THAT WILL HELP YOU CHANNEL THE PROFESSIONAL CHEF WITHIN CHEF’S KNIFE Proper knives in a range of shapes and sizes make prep easier. A carbon or stainless-steel paring knife, bread knife and chef’s knife will get you through just about anything. Try before you buy, and consider balance, weight (hefty or lighter) and size (8-inch for versatility; 10-inch to cut more volume; 6-inch knife for agility). MANDOLINE Investing in a quality mandoline is akin to having an at-home sous chef. It’s particularly useful for making super-thin cuts and cooking food evenly. When choosing a mandoline, decide on blade shape and a hand-held or stand model. Also consider slicing shapes: round for crunchy cukes and radishes; ribbon for carrots and zucchini; matchstick for anything julienned.

Concrete mosaic tiles and plank walls complete the comfortable, casual vibe.

CAST-IRON SKILLET Versatile and durable, the cast-iron skillet is perfect for frying and searing and can be put into the oven for baking. You can make just about anything in it, but here’s a pro tip: Next time you make a roast, sear the meat on all sides in a heated cast-iron skillet, then put the whole thing in the oven to finish cooking. MORTAR AND PESTLE Forgo the chop of the food processor, and go oldschool cool with a large granite mortar and pestle. From crushing spices or salts to making anything that’s a paste­—tapenade, aioli or hummus or pesto—the age-old stone-grinding tool may be as good as it gets. CUTTING BOARDS We love flexible plastic cutting boards for their easy pot-transferring abilities and even easier cleanup—just be sure to buy them in duplicates, so you can avoid cross-contamination by designating one for meat and one for veggies.

PUSH PARSLEY PAST ITS PRIME WITH SIGNATURE KITCHEN SUITE’S SUPERIOR REFRIGERATION TECHNOLOGY, HERBS WILL LAST LONGER, BUT THERE’S MORE YOU CAN DO ⊲ Take herbs out of their supermarket bags as soon as you get them home. Cut the bottom of the stems, and place the snipped herbs in a jar with an inch of water. Refrigerate your bouquet. ⊲ Don’t wash your herbs until you’re ready to use them. The extra moisture speeds up the aging process and leads to shriveled leaves and premature decay. ⊲ Keep basil out of the refrigerator. This is one of the few herbs that does better at room temperature (and even better if it gets a bit of natural light). ⊲ To keep your herbs fresh for months, snip the leaves into an empty ice-cube tray. Fill up each compartment about threequarters of the way with water, and pop in the freezer. Defrost as needed. Don’t mind some extra prep time? Use your fresh herbs to make any combination of flavored oils, vinegars, butters or pestos and store those accordingly.

Geometric order—pure and simple—is the principle behind the creation of this harmonious landscape in San Francisco. Organized from a single point, the garden integrates the angles of the residence and extends the architecture into the oddly shaped lot. The result is a graceful sequence of space and form that feels infinite.

Panoramic views of Austin are key at this residence sited on a high bluff. Exchange between indoor and outdoor spaces occurs via ample use of glass, two interior courtyards and rooms that open onto the expansive rear terrace. Amenities include a lap pool, an outdoor shower, a summer kitchen and a fireside lounge.

THE ART of the PANCAKE If there’s one food that’s ubiquitous with breakfast, it’s the pancake. But while this fluffy morning mainstay can be a rounded piece of heaven when done properly, too often, unreliable cooktops lead to flapjacks that are charred and uneven­—or completely underdone. Admittedly, it’s easy to miss the mark on the picture-perfect finish–a golden color and an unblemished, smooth canvas for a hearty helping of syrup. Or rather, it was easy to miss the mark. Signature Kitchen Suite’s new dual-fuel pro ranges come fully equipped with chromium griddles that deliver consistent and even heating for a drool-worthy pancake that’ll make you flip. Follow our tried-and-true tips to help you get the lightest, fluffiest pancakes you’ve ever tasted.

RED_OutdoorLivingSpace.indd 253

1

Take it easy. Never overmix the batter. It overdevelops the gluten, which results in tougher pancakes that don’t rise as well while cooking.

2

Add some sour to your sweet. Mixing in buttermilk or even milk with a squeeze of lemon to your dry ingredients can enhance the pancakes’ flavor–the touch of acidity brings balance to the combination.

3

Opt for oil, not butter. Although pancakes are generally captured in photographs with an enticing square of butter on top, save it for the breakfast table. Instead, use vegetable oil on your skillet, as the ingredient is less likely to burn than butter.

THE KITCHEN IS THE NEW LIVING ROOM ORANGE COUNTY | SAN DIEGO

▼ HULTON DEVELOPMENT, INC. Seamless describes this midcentury-modern home in Del Mar, California, after it underwent a complete transformation. Walls were reinforced, a foundation was added and new limestone floors were laid inside and out. Custom woodwork included walnut doors, ceilings and casework. Smart planning and plenty of glass ensured breathtaking panoramic views to the east and west.

Kitchen design has become more dramatic and interesting, with artfully curated non-kitchen-y living spaces. Today, islands resemble works of art; cabinets look more like those found in the library and kitchen furniture is more tailored. The island is the new sofa. As the focal point for prep, gathering and dining, the island is the place to congregate. For decor, consider an industrialstyle freestanding worktable on casters topped with a thick marble slab, or a worn French oak farm table with shelving. Both options pair nicely with sleek stainless-steel appliances and den-style walnut or dark green-painted cabinets. The refrigerator is the new cocktail table. As entertaining has become more relaxed, guests help themselves to what’s in the refrigerator. This hero appliance has to look as good on the inside as the outside, plus maintain food freshness. With its clean, modern lines, Signature Kitchen Suite’s new French door refrigerator becomes a coveted design objet in the kitchen. The oven is the new fireplace. Sure, roasting s’mores over an open fire can be charming, but the sticky aftermath is less than romantic. If you’re craving something sweet, opt for a s’mores casserole instead and then let Signature Kitchen Suite’s Speed-CleanTM oven make fast work of the cleanup in just 10 minutes, using only water. With all of the pro range’s bells and whistles, though, dessert is, ironically, just the beginning.

Using the right tools can help get you there. Equipped with a powerful two-speed convection fan, Signature Kitchen Suite’s high-caliber 48-inch pro range helps the Technicurean™ quicken the cooking process and achieve an even roast. Below, we revisit some time-honored tips to further guarantee a successful serving. Brine it: This technique shouldn’t be reserved just for the Thanksgiving turkey. Prepare a wet or dry brine that incorporates salt, pepper and aromatics (think: orange, lemon, rosemary or other herbs), and transfer the submerged or prepared poultry into the fridge to sit with the flavors. Truss it: Tie up any loose ends—literally. After rinsing, drying and incorporating any additional seasonings to the skin, use cooking twine to tuck in the wings closer to the bird and criss-cross the drumsticks over the open cavity. Besides achieving a picture-perfect form, the process helps white and dark meat cook evenly. Flip it: Always roast the bird upside down. With the breast at the bottom and legs atop, all the juices run through the chicken, ensuring it is moist and delicious. Let it rest: It may be difficult to resist the urge to carve the chicken when the fragrant aroma of those skillfully cooked ingredients fills the kitchen, but experts agree: It’ll be worth the wait. Once the dish is out of the oven, leave it to cool for 15 minutes to ensure the juices settle.

We tapped designer and National Kitchen + Bath Association board member Young Huh to break down what’s new and next in the luxury market. What kind of stone is commanding attention in high-end kitchens today? Beautiful natural stone with dramatic movement and interesting veining is probably what most high-end homeowners are hankering for. We are seeing a lot of extraordinary slab installations, sometimes with book-matching. Stone such as sequoia brown, which looks like petrified wood, and dalmata white, which has dramatic black rippling, are very popular. When it comes to backsplashes, which patterns or tiles are having a moment? We just developed a line of mosaic tiles with AKDO that are based on mathematical patterns. I think people are looking for attractive geometrics that also incorporate color. There was a long period of simple white kitchens and baths; I think we’re going to see movement away from that with color, pattern and drama. What are some popular finishes you’re seeing with faucets or hardware? Black plumbing is giving brass and chrome a run for its money. A touch of black always gives a little snap to your decor.

Through a high standard of environmental stewardship, Humboldt Redwood manages productive forestlands while operating efficient manufacturing and distribution facilities. In all it does, the company employs an awareness of high-quality products and the customer’s needs to deliver the premier product from which it gets its name—redwood. Humboldt Redwood lumber and timbers are two of the most environmentally friendly building materials available for outdoor living projects. They are renewable, recyclable, biodegradable and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified forestlands (FSC-C005200). “A freestanding redwood timber shade structure should last 40 years or more,” says Jessica Hewitt, Humboldt Redwood’s director of marketing. “The service life of a well-constructed redwood deck is generally 20 to 30 years.”

Using high-quality materials in a thoughtful way takes good design to the next level.

PATRICIA BENNER LANDSCAPE DESIGN Los Angeles | California | 323.933.1091 | benner-design.com

When Patricia Benner designs an outdoor space, she aims to delight the senses, convey serenity, and enhance it aesthetically, functionally and ecologically. It’s a tall order, and one she thrills at achieving, with the help of her team at Patricia Benner Landscape Design. Benner’s own style is rooted simultaneously in classicism and modernism, and client input is a primary guide in her process. “I spend a lot of time discussing the clients’ lifestyles, wish lists and garden experiences to develop an understanding of how they are likely to use their space,” she says. “In addition to these factors, the architectural style of the home and the site’s attributes influence the design.” As she balances each of these considerations, Benner keeps efficiency in mind. In an effort to create water-conscious designs, she uses native, droughttolerant plants where possible. On a related note, she advises clients to be wary of overwatering.

Gardens should inspire calm and tell a story. This can’t happen when a space lacks a cohesive feel.

At Terra Outdoor Living, quality is the mantra. One look at its materials list, which includes resources like premium-grade teak, marinegrade stainless steel and German-engineered concrete, makes this clear. After purchasing his own home and searching for the ideal outdoor furnishings to no avail, Steve Keihner set out on a mission: to offer a superior product at an affordable price. In line with this goal, Keihner and his team are devoted to innovation, and strive to stay up to date on the latest techniques. “Ten years ago, outdoor furniture primarily comprised garden benches, sun loungers and dining tables,” Keihner says. “The advent of highly durable materials has brought design and function to a new level. I’m most excited about flexible design materials, such as all-weather wicker or Textilene wrapped around aluminum framing, which allows for any form or shape you can imagine.” Terra has also embraced a fusion of materials, mixing concrete, steel, glass and teak in new ways.

TRAILSCAPE Northern California | 530.852.5155 | trailscapeinc.com

In the eyes of Randy Martin and his team at Trailscape, a home’s outdoor living environment doesn’t end with the patio. Through the creation of trails, the firm enables its clients to explore the full extent of their property, from backdoor to forest’s end. And while the establishment of a trail may seem simple, Trailscape approaches the process with an abundance of detailed planning through which it strives to optimize the experience for those traversing the path. “I love the way a trail directs a person’s eye,” Martin says. “When there is something interesting to see, we will often use the trail to give them a peek, generating curiosity, and then deliver the view through a window of oak branches. Then, we will pull them away from the view and present it again from a different perspective. The trails are about what occurs on them: the deep conversations, connection to the land, time spent with loved ones, and the delight of one’s heart and soul.”

Our trails meander like a ribbon through the forest.

SERENITY. SECURITY. SUSTAINABILITY. While offering the property owner a way to take part in recreational, fitness and social activities, Trailscape’s creations also serve a more serious purpose: protection from forest fires. “With all of the fires we’ve had lately, we have discovered that our trails can make for a great firebreak,” Martin says. “Through these, firefighters are better able to create fire lines.” One client’s feedback says it all: “Your trail saved our home.”

ichard Felix-Ashman’s sensibilities as an architect and designer converge as he recalls his first impression of the stately Presidio Heights residence he’s since restored as a West Coast home for his New York City clients. “It was quite stunning. It had a very urban façade inspired by the brick and limestone house fronts on the Place de Vosges in Paris and the feel of a grand Normandy country home in the back, and you could see the magnificent proportions of the architecture,” he says. “That resonated strongly as we started to think about what it could be.” Built in 1930 by famed Bay Area architect Albert Farr, the home had seen better days. “It was a hodgepodge inside, and too drafty and cold,” shares one of the owners. “We thought we could renovate it over time, until I went to plug my laptop into a wall socket and realized there were no three-prong plugs anywhere in the house. We thought, ‘We might as well gut it out.’ ”

As Felix-Ashman orchestrated the home’s transformation, he left the reception level’s grand proportions mostly intact while he opened up the warrens of rooms that were once delegated to waitstaff on the top and bottom floors. Working with architects Jessica Vass and Jessica Wu, along with designers Alice Crumeyrolle and Ashley Herman, Felix-Ashman mined historical texts on French houses for inspiration to incorporate period-appropriate moldings, plasterwork and materials such as French limestone and reclaimed barnwood. “The 1930 vintage also brings Deco to the story,” he says, “and this weaves with the French city narrative, brings a sense of modernity, and gives cues for furnishings and other details.” Light, too, was paramount, so the team expanded the dark entry hall and added terraces off the dining room and living area to establish a better connection with the garden below. Felix-Ashman also created more openness by inserting an expansive arched opening between the dining room and kitchen, and in a modern take on that theme, added oversize arched steel-frame windows to

LX_SF22_NATpickup_HOM_Handel_14.indd 279

the enlarged garden level below. “The steel mullions and muntins are extremely slender, lending a lightness to the space and the view,” says the architect. The vista reveals a rambling English garden designed by landscape architect Eric Blasen and horticulturalist Silvina Blasen. “It was a jungle back there,” says Eric Blasen. “Our goal was to make it more useful and attractive from inside the home as well as outside.” Other decisions, such as the installation of a home automation system, integrated lighting, radiant heating and new copper piping, addressed the home’s functionality. General contractor Dan Matarozzi, project manager Alexandra Kovacs Jones and superintendent Robin Beauchamp oversaw the construction work and ensured all the intricate finish details were installed properly. “It speaks volumes of the skill attributable to the many artisans, plumbers, plasterers, cabinetmakers and other tradespeople on the job who helped bring the bones of the house up to date and create interiors that were a throwback to the traditional style,” Kovacs Jones says.

Inspired by the bread ovens of old European kitchens, FelixAshman designed a fireplace encased in Venetian plaster. Wall art by Emily Payne from the Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley hangs above the fire feature and barstools by Soane Britain pull up to the kitchen island.

4/4/18 1:15 PM


For the interiors, Felix-Ashman let the architecture drive the design: The reception and master-suite levels exude the formal, urban aesthetic of the home’s Parisian façade while the top and bottom floors hew to the rear elevation’s more rusticated, Norman style. A neutral palette fills the home, save for strategic pops of color where certain pieces stand out as sculptural elements. The team used neutral groupings where soft hues rendered in linen, velvet and wool shift attention to the room’s shapes and forms. “We’re always trying to strike a harmony between the architecture and the furnishings,” Felix-Ashman says. Velvet- and mohair-covered armchairs, for example, inject warmth into the formal living room. “They’re comfortable, and not precious at all,” he says. “The velvet captures the light beautifully and plays off the architectural features of some other pieces in the room—hard against soft.” The team worked with Christopher Peacock to create a custom kitchen designed specifically for the owners’ needs. “It was one space the clients could really get

involved with,” Felix-Ashman says. “They wanted to know what was inside every drawer and behind every door.” He then proposed a fireplace behind the kitchen island that was centered in the arched view from the dining room. “Now it feels as if it was always in that location,” he says. Of the home’s private spaces, the master suite underwent the most significant changes, including the addition of an annexed sitting room. A custom, doublesided vanity set at a jaunty angle is the centerpiece of the master bathroom, which has a view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the oval soaking tub. The project credo from start to finish, Felix-Ashman says, was “heritage meets modernity,” and he praised his clients for allowing him to follow that path without any deviation. “It’s not so modern, not so old,” says one of the homeowners. “Richard told us his goal was to have visitors question whether the house was all original or recently updated. It was a clever idea, and we fell in love with it.”

The oak-paneled cigar salon features sconces by Ingrid Donat from Carpenters Workshop Gallery in New York and an iron-andglazed-lava-stone sideboard by Christophe Côme from the Cristina Grajales Gallery in New York. It holds the owners’ vintage cameras and a work by Keith Haring.

aised in a house with a 24-hour wedding chapel as the living room, Oakland painter Donald Bradford couldn’t help but start out in performance art. “There was a pulpit and pews, and there were two bathrooms where the couple could change, and they would come out in their wedding clothes,” he recalls. While his uncle led the service, he and his cousins peeked out from the kitchen door, giggling at the height of the drama—the kiss. Fast forward past the third-grade teacher who noticed his artistic talent, past the bully he distracted with quick sketches of Mickey Mouse, past the two years in college studying theater arts, to the moment he realized acting made him too nervous. Bradford turned to painting, although his early canvases have a performative feel: He staged his friends in scenes from mythology and the Bible, and then he painted them. Bradford has long moved on from theatrical scenes, but his interest in narrative—and ritual— remains. He tends to do more than a dozen paintings on a theme, and his series have included 1940s love letters between a Petaluma suitor and a Wellesley College student; open books about artists; his own bulletin boards on which, Bradford says, “images and news clippings were chosen

A work in progress (right) shows a collection of milagros.

to almost set up a narrative.” In all of these works, story is suggested, but not unfolded, for the viewer. While there’s reverence, there’s also wit, as in one series in which he isolates the ritual objects of a wedding and examines each one. These are still lifes with a modernist attitude. “The classical, typical still life is a whole bunch of stuff,” Bradford says. “But I have austere, flat backgrounds, and I like doing a really simple thing— one glass with a flower in it, one open book, one votive candle.” The Bay Area Figurative Movement was inevitably an influence. “I’m probably more of a ‘painterly painter’ because of them,” says Bradford. “From far away, my work can appear photographic, but up close, the brushstrokes are very loose.” His palette, inspired by Italian painter Giorgio Morandi, is primarily “beautiful shades of white and grays with accents of color,” Bradford says. “You’d never call me a bright colorist.” The artist’s studio is three rooms off the house he shared with his late partner, Richard Bassett, a textile and Braille artist. They each had a studio and shared a “dirty studio” in between. Since Bassett’s death five years ago, “I just spread out,” says Bradford. “I go back and forth between paintings—undercoats or drawings on one, which I can make in a distracted mood, or filling out details on another, which requires real concentration.” Throughout the studio, a new series is in progress. When friends traveling in Europe sent the artist photos of hand-written prayers parishioners left in churches, Bradford soon began to write his own—for a beloved cousin with cancer, for ill friends or for those affected by mass shootings. His Prayer Paintings will appear in a solo show at the Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco from June 13 to July 20. Here, both ritual and story come together, but in these paintings, the words, too, are his own.

MODERN MANOR A STATELY ABODE IN PACIFIC HEIGHTS IS REFRESHED FOR AN ACTIVE FAMILY.

WRITTEN BY KIMBERLY OLSON / PHOTOGRAPHY BY AUBRIE PICK

W

hen Wendy Holcombe and Carl Kawaja bought their home—an 1898 Classic Revival-style residence perched on a hill overlooking the San Francisco Bay— they appreciated that it had light on all sides in densely populated Pacific Heights. Yet as their young children became teenagers, and battles ensued over bathrooms and hangout space, the family had to do something about the interior layout. “It was too ornate for who they were,” says designer Tineke Triggs. “They’re much more eclectic, and the family is into karaoke and movies, so how do we create that for them?” Architect Mark Thomas, who has known the couple for 20 years and worked on other projects for them, set out to strike a balance. “It was a handsome house, so we wanted to respect its existing architectural qualities,” he says, noting the graceful original central staircase, which was painted to highlight its features. “But we also wanted to make it open and bright and family-friendly, instead of a museum.” Thomas made small additions to the lower level and main floor. “It allowed us to reorganize interior spaces and take advantage of the now-omnipresent views to downtown San Francisco from the back of the house,” he says, adding that the vistas as they are now didn’t exist when the home was constructed. “This house is in Cow Hollow, which was formerly farming and dairy land.” With the vastly changed landscape, Thomas, working with general contractors Jay Blumenfeld and Allison Hammer, found ways to maximize natural light and showcase the bay scenery. “The first, second and third floors have pocketing glass doors at the rear that create a wonderful indoor/outdoor flow,” says Blumenfeld.

Opposite: In the living room, Triggs designed walnut cubes to display shadowboxes by George-Ann Gowan, a friend of Wendy’s, and to showcase mementos from Carl’s travels. The Flexform sofa wears a Jane Churchill fabric, the chairs are by HBF, and the coffee table was designed by Triggs. Dressing the space are draperies in Schumacher’s Shalimar Sheer, fabricated by Susan Lind Chastain, and overhead is a Moooi light fixture.

On the main level, what used to be a dark, divided kitchen with bump-outs for ductwork and a chimney is now a clean rectangle that continues to an expanded terrace with a spiral stair to the yard below. “The new deck has transformed our lives,” Wendy says. “It opens this level to the outdoors.” Triggs further refreshed the kitchen’s sitting room and breakfast area by washing it in white with bright dashes of color. A sleek white sofa, for example, sports a pillow in a whimsical fabric by Austrian-Swedish designer Josef Frank, a tribute to Carl’s Swedish heritage. “We brought in blues and greens in the back interiors of the house to mirror the natural beauty of the San Francisco Bay and its surrounding landscape,” Triggs says. Thomas created more generous openings between the kitchen, dining and living areas, which ease movement through the spaces. Decorative millwork honors the home’s traditional roots, but its clean lines speak to the Scandinavian style Carl and Wendy lean toward. In the same vein, Triggs placed the family’s heirlooms and some

of their heavier furnishings next to modern, streamlined pieces. “It was fun to research Swedish patterns and design, and to look at things that were passed down,” she says. “In Europe, people will keep their grandfather’s chest but put an Eames chair right next to it.” Triggs also found ways to display treasures from Carl’s travels, via display cubes in the living room and special vessels and stands around the house. “He comes home with arrowheads from Vietnam, ax heads, antique medicinal tools and navigation devices,” Wendy says. “She made sure all of it had a place, and it delights my husband to come in and see all of it.” Meanwhile, Triggs had a brainstorm for transforming the nondescript stair landing. “I said, ‘Why don’t we have a real library, a prominent place to display your books?’ ” she recalls. Custom bookcases now flank a bespoke leaded-glass window designed in a Swedish pattern. “That used to be a blank wall,” Wendy says. “There’s now some purpose behind it.” The home’s lower level—an underutilized walk-out basement—was redesigned to include a game room and

theater, gym with wine storage, and a mudroom. Ever mindful that the home had to stand up to three teens and their friends, Triggs used indoor-outdoor fabric in the theater for added durability. The kids also have ample space upstairs—with no more bathroom showdowns. “Each kid got their own unique bedroom and bathroom areas,” says Hammer. Adds Blumenfeld, “Before, there wasn’t a good flow program, but now there’s a main hallway that serves as the spine of those rooms.” The most dramatic upstairs transformation was in the master suite that expanded to occupy the entire back of the house. The new layout includes a walk-in closet and sliding glass doors that open to a terrace with breathtaking views. “It’s quiet in back, so we sleep with the sliding doors all the way open most nights,” Wendy says. “It’s amazing to sleep like that in a city.” With the renovations complete, the house finally matches the couple’s style and suits their busy family. “What’s cool about how they live is that, every time I’m there, there’s someone in the kitchen, there’s someone in the living room,” Triggs says. “The house is fluid, and they’re not afraid to use the rooms.”

Lighting designer Jonathan Browning and his husband, Marco Heithaus, transformed a 1930s bed and breakfast in Noe Valley into their hilltop abode. In the living room, the sectional by The Bright Group is covered in orange mohair by Cowtan & Tout and the Minotti armchairs are vintage from 1stdibs, reupholstered in a Cowtan & Tout linen. The rug is vintage from Morocco, and the drinks table and floor lamp are by Jonathan Browning Studios.

L

ove is patient, and it’s a good way to describe the 17-year journey that lighting designer Jonathan Browning and his husband, Marco Heithaus, traveled to transform their Noe Valley home. The 1931 structure had become a down-at-the-heels bed and breakfast when the couple bought it in 1999; nearly two decades later, it has become a grand hilltop abode that combines Browning’s reverence for Mediterranean Revival architecture with Heithaus’ minimalist-modern instincts. Despite its challenges, the couple saw enough promise in the B&B to undertake the home project—a venture that closely mirrored the growth of their business, Jonathan Browning Studios, where Browning is the creative director and Heithaus is the chief financial and operating officer. “This building was just a total disaster. There was nothing redeeming about it except the exterior architecture,” says Browning, noting that the façade bore a closer resemblance to the Spanish-influenced stucco homes that are endemic to his native Los Angeles than the Edwardian and Victorian architecture that’s more prevalent in San Francisco. Another bonus was its double lot, making the property twice as wide as its neighbors. “What we have is what no one gets in San Francisco—we have this massive front yard,” the designer says. Browning, who handled the interiors and residential design, and Heithaus, who oversaw the construction, started the renovation process with the garden. They replaced an unremarkable front lawn with an exotic courtyard, sunken from the street and brimming with lush vegetation. “By the time the house was finished, the landscaping looked grown in already,” Heithaus says. They lived in the house more than two years before renovating inside—around the same time they were designing Browning’s first lighting collection in 2002. They removed the old lath and plaster to install

Opposite: “I wanted the ceilings to evoke the grandest estates from the 1920s,” Browning says. So, to create the Renaissance Revival ceilings, which are showcased in the living room, the couple turned to Fischer & Jirouch for the plaster ornament work and to Willem Racké Studio for the faux-mahogany glazing. Outfitting the space are a Dutch Renaissance-style mirror by APF Munn and sconces by Jonathan Browning Studios.

new systems and insulation, and had thick, hand-troweled plaster applied over new drywall. They replaced all the flooring, window frames and doors with custom Honduran mahogany. Each new element came as they could afford it. “We were struggling,” Browning says, noting that he set up his drafting table under a tarp to avoid the construction dust. “We did the renovation in the most expensive way we could do it, but there wasn’t enough money left for decoration. People were wowed by the house, but politely underwhelmed by the decor.” Yet, Browning and Heithaus were undeterred. The furnishings could wait while they got everything else right, like installing mahogany beams, decorative plasterwork and paneled coffers on the ceilings. “These are Renaissance Revival ceilings,” Browning says. “I didn’t want the Mexican

look that a lot of homes in California have.” He made a deal with his friend, decorative painter Willem Racké, to paint the plaster. “We did a trade—he has some of my lighting,” Browning says. “He did this faux finish in mahogany to match the real mahogany beams. It makes the house beautiful, warm and special.” The couple had achieved enough success by 2008 to purchase a warehouse downtown for their operations—just as the economy took a dive. To survive, they had to rent out their beloved home and move into the warehouse. “The irony is, we bought this building as a way to not work out of the house,” Browning says. Eventually, they moved back in, and Browning inked a deal to design lighting for RH, which gave the couple the resources they needed to complete the home’s interior design.

On the rear terrace, lounge chairs by RH Modern flank a pool that was built in the 1960s, to which Browning added new flagstone coping. The David Sutherland for RH dining table and chairs enjoy a prime view of downtown San Francisco.

The idea was to infuse the revivalist architecture with a modern vibe. “I wanted all the work relating to surfaces to look original, as if we had simply restored this home— then furnished it in a very modern way,” Browning says. They turned to The Bright Group to source most of the clean-lined upholstered furnishings. Browning also incorporated vintage pieces that add warmth but maintain the contemporary feel, like 1950s terrazzo-and-brass cocktail tables in the living room; a 1960s chandelier over the dining table; and myriad accent pieces bought at the Paris Flea Market and in the Marrakesh souks. “I like the soul of pieces that start somewhere else,” he says. And while there’s a sprinkling of his light fixtures through the house, the statement pieces are by others. “It’s a little bit like being at work to see a bunch of my own lighting,” he says. “It’s refreshing to see someone else’s work to understand their genius.” Heithaus, a modernist at heart, led the design for the sleek kitchen, where the counters and walls are covered in Carrara marble. “I like to cook and entertain,” he says. “So, the kitchen was a big deal for me.” Heithaus kept the walls free of cabinetry to preserve the clean look, and specified two long islands on wheels, so they can be moved around for entertaining inside and outside. Browning, ever the traditionalist, put his personal stamp on the office. “When I work at home, I want a world I can step in to that is from the 19th century,” he says. “It was the high point in American residential architecture.” As a couple, they have renovated five houses in their 23 years together—and are currently working on another in Los Angeles—but this one stands out among the rest. “It wasn’t so much of a renovation as a reinvention,” Browning says, adding that he accumulated a library of books on period residential architecture in the process. “It allowed me more freedom to design with a look to the romantic past of California.”
