a new view... The Tweak: it’s an ever-present verb for those of us in the business of design. Our days are consumed with upgrades and installs; recasts and transformations; alterations, punctuations and slightly-to-the-rights. A decade ago we began publishing Luxe Interiors + Design, and for this celebratory 10-year anniversary, we’ve done some refurbishing of our own with a refresh of our magazine pages. We’ve reassembled its parts in a way that makes for a better read. We’ve introduced more robust feature stories, revitalized the typography, and clarified the navigation of our departments. You’ll find news and discoveries for the season in “Radar,” the latest décor and product introductions in “Market,” and inspiring ideas for the home in “The Look.” Design never stands still, and we’ve certainly evolved over the past decade. What hasn’t changed much, however, is the mission of our magazine: to inform and inspire, cultivate ideas, and connect design enthusiasts with design talent. As always, and hopefully for the next 10 years and beyond, we hope you enjoy our magazine.

having a moment: Dutch and Belgian designers like Piet Boon and Axel Vervoordt. Boon is breaking through the worlds of architecture and décor with his collaboration with Land Rover. on your horizon: Opening an office for my design firm, Worth Interiors, in the Hamptons. happening in Colorado: I think Colorado designers and architects are creating a new “Mountain Modern” aesthetic particular to our location. Who is exciting you right now? At Town, we’re carrying furniture by Brooklyn-based Hellman-Chang, lighting from John Pomp of Philadelphia and de Le Cuona’s luscious linens and cashmeres. your go-to shops: In Denver, HW Home is great for home décor, and for luxury ski wear and clothing, I go to Gorsuch in Vail. Designer Eddy Doumas started Worth Interiors in Avon and is co-owner of Town in the Denver Design District. He owns a ridiculous number of Lanvin sneakers and wishes Milo Baughman were still working today.
2 the architect CarloS alvarez
What’s intriguing you in design? The idea of timelessness and reusing buildings in new and better ways; design that is great yesterday, today and tomorrow. architecture, present and future: I don’t think architecture moves that fast. I try to keep up with the interior designers in our office and sometimes, I like where they are going and sometimes I don’t, but they keep me thinking. Interior design is more like fashion in that it changes based on people’s perceptions. Architecture is far more permanent. if i wasn’t an architect, i’d be… A photographer. looking forward to: The Denver Botanic Gardens summer concert series and new exhibits coming to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. 100 / luxe interiors + design
Spanish wonders: I have dual offices; one in Denver, one in Bilbao, Spain, and in my opinion, that country’s most beautiful building is a tie between Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao—though they couldn’t be more different. Carlos Alvarez is the founder of Alvarez Morris Architectural Studio in Denver. If Mies van der Rohe were alive, Alvarez would commission him to design his home.
3 the designer beth Slifer
What’s intriguing you lately? The world of design is shifting. Color is becoming chic again. We’re seeing an economic recovery here in Colorado and clients are definitely looking for more upbeat environments.
latest covetable purchase: An Arne Jacobsen Egg chair, which he designed in the ’50s for the lobby of what was then the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. It’s a bright purple and complements the blue, gray and white décor of my new kitchen. Beth Slifer, founder and creative director of Slifer Designs in Edwards, considers herself an organizing virtuoso. She’d love to design a hotel in the Caribbean, and is constantly looking to acquire new art, as it never goes out of style.
images: Clockwise from center right: A seating area in designer Beth Slifer’s Florida home. This Vail residence’s master suite was designed by Eddy Doumas. The unique slatted façade of this house in Denver is a recently completed project by architect Carlos Alvarez.
Design greats of the past that are still relevant today: Billy Baldwin epitomized eclecticism in the 1950s and ’60s. He famously mixed cotton with silk and gilt, and he also pared down the “stuff” in a room to be livable. for inspiration, i look to… The fashion industry, which is first to use color experimentally and provides clues on the mood of our clients. We have been through an austere phase, but now fashion and home design are becoming more playful. What’s trending: After a slavish reliance on pewter, chrome and stainless steel, we are seeing more brass and gold. Aerin Lauder is one tastemaker designing and manufacturing simple shapes with gilded finishes combined with dark enamels and matte black. Touches of gold offer bright contrast to neutrals and stand out among more 2 colorful interiors.

THE INSIDERS Preferred art medium: There’s nothing like oil. It’s forgiving, easy to blend and produces what I call “happy accidents” while I’m working. Tracy Weil is an artist and co-founder of the RiNo Art District in Denver. He’s always wanted to be tasked with painting a dazzle camo battleship a lá Norman Wilkinson…and creating his own wallpaper.
5 the jeweler todd reed
recent inspiration: Getting to know Cartier a bit more since the exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.
what can’t you get enough of right now: I’m all about The High Line in New York. It has really rejuvenated the West Side of Manhattan. I’ve been enjoying watching the plant life fill in as well as the surrounding art and development this one project has spurred. As a community builder myself, I love seeing successful transformation stories like this.
4 the artist tracy weil
Having a moment: Banksy’s mystery and stellar content is so intriguing, as is his (her?) connection with multiple generations. Banksy has redefined public art. Keep an eye on: Denver artists Yoshitomo Saito, Chris DeKnikker and Hadley Hooper. Hooper illustrated a stunning children’s picture book called The Iridescence of Birds: A Book About Henri Matisse. 102 / luxe interiors + design
what’s trending: Op art (or optical art) is becoming more popular these days. For the past few years, I’ve been exploring what’s regarded as dazzle camouflage. During World War I, artist Norman Wilkinson worked with the British military to paint battleships in highly visual Postmodern patterns to distract and confuse the enemy—all pre-radar—on which direction they were traveling in. I find this extremely fascinating, particularly the collaboration between art and the military. I feel these bold visuals will continue to influence art and design in the coming years as they produce a strong statement and stand out in today’s world full of excess. Not to miss this spring: The RiNo Art District open studio tour on May 9. architecture as art: The Sculptured House—which is also called the Sleeper House after it appeared in Woody Allen’s sci-fi movie, Sleeper— built by architect Charles Deaton in the ’70s. I want to live there. Also, Denver’s Union Station, as it’s a perfect example of how a historic landmark can be updated to adapt to a new generation.
on my horizon: I’m looking to grow my high-end business and have a larger couture collection base. Gold (and diamond) standard: I know its old school, but I can’t tire of gold lately. Also, I was able to get these beautiful gray diamonds from Canada’s Ekati Diamond Mine; we are having them faceted and they are delicious. top 4 things to experience in Boulder: The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the work of Rebecca DiDomenico, Madelife, and Nod & Rose. dream vacation: Going on a one-month retreat of silence. Playing tourist at home: I’d start with a hike in the foothills and then pop into The Kitchen. Then, I’d walk on Pearl Street and end the day with dessert at Oak at Fourteenth. Todd Reed is a jewelry designer based in Boulder. He prefers to work with raw stones, can skillfully peel an orange in one long piece and has way too many ceramic cups.
images: Clockwise from top left: Jewelry designer Todd Reed’s Venice store, which was dreamed up by Denver-based architecture firm Tres Birds Workshop. The interior of Reed’s California showroom is as unique as his raw stone pieces. Community builder Tracy Weil has artist Chris DeKnikker on his radar for his salvaged-wood creations. Mike Whiting’s pixelated rhino sculpture stands proud in Denver’s RiNo Art District.

what’s intriguing you? In general, the popularity of appreciating quality is great. It seemed like, for some time, it was okay to just have good design, even if nothing was backing it up. I’m glad that craftsmanship is becoming so important. More specifically, in jewelry, I’m always interested in seeing what Arunashi will come up with. As for design, it feels like Denver-based architect Michael Moore at Tres Birds Workshop is really on it right now. The studio designed my Boulder headquarters as well as my store in Venice, California.

CUTTING-EDGE WORKS EMPLOY TECHNIQUES AS VARIED AS THE ARTISTS WHO CREATED THEM. WRITTEN BY JESSE BRATTER / PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS
ELISA GOMEZ MIXED MEDIA Whether it’s the energetic rhythms of an upbeat salsa number or the transportive sounds of a classical opus, all music moves Elisa Gomez in an indescribable way. The Austin-based abstract painter translates this feeling to canvas using brushes, palette knives or even her bare hands. The graffiti effect in Am I Free From This Dream #2, left, is a result of her fast-paced strokes and layered textures; it's part of her series with local composer Walter Nichols—a visual portrayal of his musical arrangements. Of her wish for viewers to have the same reaction to her art as she has to music, she says, “I hope people are taken to a deeper, more meaningful place.” elisagomezart.com
TROY SIMMONS CONCRETE Troy Simmons is so captivated by Brutalist architecture that he translates the vernacular to canvas, juxtaposing raw concrete against sleek pigments (see Durchbruch, left, shown vertically, and Serendipity, below). Approaching each piece like a construction project— his heaviest weighs 300 pounds—the Miami artist creates 3-D renderings and drawings before chiseling away at the cement. “My creative process reflects who we are as humans,” Simmons says. “We all carry complex yet beautiful experiences in our souls.” See his work this May at JanKossen Contemporary Art Gallery in New York. troysimmonsstudio.com
SARAH RASKEY MIXED MEDIA The Swarovski crystals in Sarah Raskey’s 24kt Gold and Glamour, above, is a good indication of the high fashion that permeates her work. The elegant result is a far cry from the mad-scientist process that gets her there: picture materials spilled over, others set on fire, and power tools strewn about her Chicago studio. “I love the dance that takes place among art, fashion and self-expression,” says Raskey, who, as an art therapist, helps others find healing through creativity. “I want viewers to feel that my art encourages the human spirit.” Raskey will be incorporating Maya Romanoff’s handmade textiles into her work for an exhibit at its Chicago showroom this April. sarahraskey.com

JAMIE LEE REARDIN ILLUSTRATION “When I was little, I dreamed of becoming a Disney animator, and my interests later expanded into fashion,” recalls Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jamie Lee Reardin. “I eventually fused these passions, and from my imagination emerged these gawky gazelles with long, impossibly thin silhouettes.” Their dramatic appearance, seen in Aline, left, speaks to Reardin's fascination with complex personalities like Cruella De Vil and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride. Her talents ultimately caught the eye of Dior Beauty's Dianne Vavra, which turned into the ideal collaboration. Now with each pen stroke and watercolor mark, she's surpassing her childhood dreams one character at a time. jamieleereardin.com
ELOISE CORR DANCH PAPER All Brooklyn artist Eloise Corr Danch needs to create her swoon-worthy works are her grandmother’s heavy metal scissors, X-Acto knives and a colorful imagination. Whether flowers, headpieces, illustrations or myriad other objects, it’s the endless color wheel and the way light reflects off its surface that attracts Danch to paper as her medium. Since her studies explored fashion history and construction, translating her floral creations for editorial fashion spreads and window dressings comes naturally—they've been used to embellish Diane von Furstenberg’s New York and Paris flagship stores, for one. “I love the play between the utility of clothes and the artistry and romance of fashion,” she says. “I hope the defining message of my work is beauty. Whether in the form of color, line or silhouette, I am always seeking to create something beautiful.” eloisecorrdanch.com

KELSEY BROOKES ACRYLIC
From an overlook at McWay Falls in Big Sur, California, Oakland artist Laura Plageman stands with her camera, marveling at the relationship between man and nature—the idyllic vista calling out to her, yet its inaccessible beach and falls remaining out of reach. In that vein, Plageman created a second image, left, that appears part illusory and part tangible, altering her original printed photo of McWay Falls and then photographing the result as a still life. Comprising her Response series, the photograph presents a seemingly impossible scene yet shows evidence of its construction through crumples and folds in the paper. “I delight in making an image that’s at once familiar and unfamiliar,” she says. “I want the viewer to look at the details and discover the image for themselves.” photolp.com
JEAN WELLS MOSAIC One look at Jean Wells’ mosaic-mirrored sculptures and it’s easy to see the influence of pop culture on her work. So it’s no surprise that when asked to name an artist favorite, she points to Wayne Thiebaud for reflecting food and humor in his paintings. Wells, too, turns to iconography and nostalgia when sculpting her fanciful objects and fast food re-creations using glass she cuts by hand; Conversation Piece, right, is an example of Wells recalling her youth. What's more, her mosaic soda bottles can be seen traveling the world this year as part of a Coca-Cola exhibition. “My motivation is spreading happiness,” muses the Seattle native. It’s a fitting mantra for an artist whose work gushes with sentimentality and whimsy. wellsart.com

BROOKES PHOTOS: ONE POINTED ATTENTION NO. 11 (DETAIL) AND ONE POINTED ATTENTION NO. 10, PHOTOS BY PHILIPP SCHOLZ RITTERMANN / COURTESY QUINT GALLERY.
For San Diego-based painter Kelsey Brookes, a scientistturned-artist, there is no left brain-right brain distinction. “You have one brain and it can become interested in whatever you purposely direct it toward,” he says. To this point, in his artistic endeavors, Brookes still explores cerebral patterns and molecular structure—but instead of examining them through a microscope, he maps them out on canvas using Golden acrylic paint and Winsor & Newton Series 7 sablehair brushes. In contrast to their vibrant colors and intricate patterns, as seen in his One Pointed Attention series, right, Brookes calmly creates his psychedelic works while listening to NPR or, sometimes, in total silence. Check out his molecular prints this spring at Quint Gallery in La Jolla, California, and see other works at New York’s Eric Firestone Gallery in June. kelseybrookes.com

WrITTen AnD prODuCeD BY mimi faucett
Ignacia Murtagh’s personal connection to pre-Hispanic native cultures began in the place she calls home: Southern Chile. “I fell in love with Chile’s poetic tradition that reinforces design as the vehicle to turn tiny but relevant details of nature into useful and significant interior elements,” she says. As a young designer, Murtagh has always attributed her design sensibility to the exuberant geography of her surroundings. Her most recent project—a series of three side tables for Bernhardt Design—directs that credit to the Andes Mountains. “The Los Andes tables were inspired by mountains that are strong and imposing but at the same time graceful and slender,” she describes. This
sculptural elegance was achieved with the tables’ unpredictable heights, organic angles and contrasting sharpness. Murtagh spent a year with the designers at Bernhardt sketching, modeling and ultimately learning to work with a new material: wood. “Ceramics are malleable. You can accomplish complex designs in a short time and change elements quickly,” explains the designer. “Wood is out of your control. The character of the grain, colors and textures are expressed differently in every piece. Once you understand the material, however, wood becomes limitless.” Armed with an aesthete’s eye and an ever-growing material repertoire, Murtagh is proving to be just as limitless herself.

NO MEDIUM IS OFF-LIMITS FOR ARTIST DAVID WISEMAN, WHO TAPS SILK AS HIS NEW MUSE FOR A LIMITED-EDITION RUG DESIGN.
WRITTEN BY MIRANDA AGEE / PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ
Clockwise from top: David Wiseman’s limited-edition rug design for R & Company. The artist’s Glacier pendant in Smoke. A Lily of the Valley installation from a past solo exhibition of Wiseman’s at R & Company. A one-of-a-kind Collage fireplace screen in bronze and porcelain. This Small Geode vase in bronze is one of 25 made, each signed and numbered. A custom commission for a private New York residence.
Glass, bronze, porcelain: For artist David Wiseman, his material selections are as varied as his creations. His scene-stealing designs can be found all over the world, from large-scale porcelain installations for Dior boutiques in Shanghai and Tokyo—which he designed in collaboration with architect Peter Marino—to being a part of the permanent collection at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. Now, in partnership with R & Company, the Los Angeles-based Wiseman is taking his intricate skills to the ground level with a limited-edition rug design inspired by his travels and rooted in historical craftsmanship. Designer Todd Oldham gave you your big break. Tell us more about that. My first project was a nature-inspired hat hanger. Todd, who I had met when he was a guest lecturer for one of my classes at RISD, actually ended up ordering a bunch of them to give as gifts. Then, when I graduated college, he offered me a job. What are your favorite materials to work with? Bronze is endlessly fascinating to me. There are so many different alloys and patinas, and when you bring it up to a high polish, it’s a true work of art. How did rugs come into the picture for you? R & Company approached me with the idea to translate my designs into a rug collection. I went to Kathmandu to meet the weavers and to better understand their process. When I got there, I was blown away. Meeting them completely changed my concept because I needed to be as detailed as they were. Can you speak to the handmade aspect? It takes anywhere from six to eight months to create one rug and only 12 are being made in two distinct colorways. Because of the high quality of silk that they use, there are 4.5 million knots in each carpet.
Textiles are a new arena for you. Did you have to think differently? It started the same way I begin all of my designs, with pencil and paper, but I quickly learned that there is no room for error. The Tibetan and Nepalese communities of rug makers were so skilled at being able to capture the drawings they even wove my subtle eraser marks into one of the samples. How did your travels come to influence this particular project? The concept is about fusing my favorite patterns from around the world so I thought it would be appropriate to add a common Tibetan motif— such as billowing clouds—into the design. What else inspires you? I always turn to nature and its history in the decorative arts. I love seeing how different cultures have internalized nature and included it in their indigenous ornamental patterns. With everything you create, what are you always looking to achieve? Finding the poetic truth about what each material wants to become. I’m obsessed with that.

ASPEN DESIGN ROOM
@amberlphotography WHO: Amber Sovorsky, a Boulder-based shutterbug who specializes in lifestyle and adventure photography, capturing the outdoorsy habits of Colorado’s thrill-seeking enthusiasts. WHAT: Expect to find glimpses of life in perpetual motion—from finely nuanced mountain-scaling shots to skydiving panoramas—all set against the backdrop of some of the prettiest landscapes Colorado has to offer. WHY: Because Sovorsky’s just like that friend you can always count on to try anything once. So, you’ll feel compelled to cheer her on (from the comfort of your living room couch, of course) as she documents her recent free fall out of a hot air balloon, for instance.
IN HER WORDS: “I love working with film cameras. There’s something about the perfect way they pick up light, the grain, and the patience they teach me. They’re constantly challenging you to nail the shot right then and there.” 138 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN
SANDRA FETTINGIS What happens behind the scenes in the studios of some of the state’s best craftsmen and artisans? For artist Sandra Fettingis, creativity means constantly evolving and finding new ways to share her incredible, geometric sculptures and installations with ever-larger audiences. “I begin with a concept, thought or feeling, which I spend time researching and examining to find the details of a piece,” Fettingis says. “Once those have been identified, I jump on the computer and start designing. This is probably where I spend the bulk of my time. When the design is complete, I fine-tune it for fabrication, which usually involves laser or router cutting.” Next, the delicate business begins of finding the perfect finishing touch. “Afterward, and depending on the material, I will approach the piece with paints, stains, paper or fibers and move on to the final assembly,” she says. “If the work is just a stand-alone piece, I am done at that point. If it’s site-specific, I complete the installation at the locale.” sfettingis.com

luxe tapped talented local designers for their best sources and recommendations to shine a light on some of the city’s finest offerings in art and design.
“I respond to artwork that has an immediate visual appeal— in some cases it’s beautiful, or strange, sometimes really direct, other times quiet. There’s always, though, layers of content and questions behind it. In the case of public installations, I like work that somehow estranges itself from its site and makes you look at characteristics you might not immediately notice, whether it’s visible elements like architecture or invisible ones, such as social relations or history.” -lauren Wright, biennialoftheamericas.org
“ Stopping into Paris Underground Antiques is like walking into a treasure chest. It has the most extraordinary lamps, furniture pieces and accessories—all incredibly unique finds that can make a room sing. Ask for Jennifer Blocker while you’re there; she’s great.”
“ I always try to incorporate a piece from Eron Johnson Antiques into my projects for clients— whether it’s furniture or a found object. His historical knowledge is staggering, and I find that I learn something new from him each time I shop there.”

fashion forward NINA GArcIA
One of the most well-respected names in fashion, Nina Garcia loves design in all its many forms. Here, the editor and television personality shares her secrets for great style—both on the runway and off of it. What new runway trends would you like to see reflected in the home? The Seventies were a big trend this season. I think it would be interesting to see fabrics from that era—like suede, denim and patchwork—incorporated into the home in an elegant way. Which fashion designer would you love to see develop his or her own home collection? I love Fendi and Armani’s home lines. They fit well with my subdued, pared-down luxe aesthetic. I’m not much of a print or pattern person myself, but I would love to see Mary Katrantzou or Proenza Schouler do a textile collection. Your home features masterful layering, thanks to the wonderful rugs throughout. Why is investing in rugs so important? They lay the groundwork for the entire space, tie everything together and add character to a room. There are many great places for rugs, but my favorites are Tai Ping, Doris Leslie Blau, Stark, Safavieh and Marc Phillips.

let’s talk fabric. Do you find you’re drawn to the same textures for your wardrobe as you are for your home? When it comes to interior design, I am attracted to simple, neutral color palettes but very rich texture because, for me, that’s where you can bring personality in. I think the same could be said for my wardrobe. My bedroom curtains are cashmere, and I love a good cashmere sweater, as well. Same with a shaggy fur coat—on a pillow? Fabulous. share your home design staples. I’m always hunting for Swedish midcentury furniture, textured carpets and unique pieces during my travels. They’re what I splurge on. What are your favorite shops and showrooms to visit when you’re at home in new York? I always stop into Gallery BAc. The selection is amazing, and carlos Aparicio is a dear friend of mine who actually helped me decorate my apartment. I also like Maison Gerard, Karl Kemp Antiques and 1stdibs.

ARMSTRONG CENTER FOR DANCE
After nearly a decade of hunting for the perfect spot, the Colorado Ballet’s Armstrong Center for Dance has finally found a permanent home at 1075 Santa Fe Drive in Denver. The former headquarters of a sewing machine and parts distributor, the one-time warehouse has been completely overhauled and reimagined by the dedicated architecture team at Semple Brown Design. The new 30,000-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art performance and rehearsal space, all with a decidedly modern appeal thanks to large expanses of glass and concrete and a sharply cantilevered roofline that juts out over the sidewalk. “Throughout my career, I’ve noticed that whenever a professional company owns its building, they flourish,” says Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs of this new addition to the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. “We want to be in the national spotlight and our new building will help us to fulfill that dream.” coloradoballet.org; semplebrowndesign.com 142 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

This spring is all about surprising color combinations and pink and ruby have long been a fixture on the fashion scene with interiors following in close pursuit; Alexandra von Furstenberg’s sexy side table and Tai Ping's feathery carpet, to name a few. Industry giant Miles Redd loved the duo so much he chose it as a main palette for his Manhattan town house, right. “I wanted the space to feel like you were submerged inside of a raspberry soufflé,” explains Redd. “I’ve always been attracted to these colors because they feel so alive—and I love the backdrop pink provides for pictures.”

The hyper contrast that exists between navy and peridot combines all the carefree nuances of springtime. The playful palette also conjures notions of excitement and adventure, which was exactly the visceral reaction New York designer Sara Story sought to create in the dining room shown. “I love this fresh color combination,” says Story. “I’ve always enjoyed mixing opposing textures, materials and pops of color—in this case a vibrant chartreuse seat fabric was just the right accent to the stunning Gracie wallcovering.” Here, Fireclay's latest tile collection, Cool Motif, marries the two powerhouses perfectly.

Chicago designer Patrizio Fradiani of Studio F emphatically applied the electrifying duo of citrus and amethyst in this retro-fitted seating niche. “The inspiration was to provide a touch of glamour combined with bold colors,” he explains. “Though an unusual pair, they are quite complementary and their juxtaposition was intended to energize the space with summery notes to combat the gloomy Chicago winters.” Chanel’s dreamy new quilted shoulder bag embraces a cheery citrus tone while Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman’s sleek bench shows off amethyst in a more refined fashion, proving that this lively pair is here to stay.

boys club “It’s material that makes an object or space tactile,” muses Lauren Geremia, principal designer of San Francisco’s Geremia Design. And, when presented with a vast array of the season’s fabric offerings, Geremia opted for a serene palette of neutrals to create the refined, masculine space shown here that invites intimate gatherings and quiet conversation. “I wanted the dining space to be minimal but mature,” she explains, “selecting simplistic patterns and muted colors that allow an opportunity for layering and creating dynamic, textured compositions.” Rose Tarlow Melrose House “napkins” sit atop place mats fashioned from a Knoll Luxe material to ground the tablescape, while a Cowtan & Tout fabric dresses the vintage midcentury chair frames and Pierre Frey’s stunning abstract textile takes its place as artwork—all giving way to a neutrally color-coded dining room where masculine notes abound and simplicity speaks volumes.

sitting pretty Designed to stop you in your tracks, this striking vignette fashioned by New York-based designer Young Huh proves that there is an art to making an entrance. “I imagined a welcoming spot where guests could arrive and be greeted with drinks and sweets,” says Huh. “My goal was to create an impactful area through contrasts in color and pattern.” To achieve her vision, Huh employed Schumacher’s Iconic Leopard fabric to flock the walls and adorned an accent pillow and the base of an ottoman with Duralee’s Eileen Kathryn Boyd collection. Rebecca Atwood’s playful spots find a home on a classic Bunny Williams stool, Beacon Hill’s Lilliflora textile, from the Ankasa Bespoke collection, drapes the table and Huh’s own fabric design for Peter Fasano graces the dining chair. “The more you mix, the more lively the room is,” says the designer, “what better stage for a little get-together.”

natural habitat Innately drawn to organic textures and wild prints, Dida Home’s David Miranda and Diana Uribe set out to create a bar scene perfect for cocktails, conversation and creative textile choices. “We had our mind set on using fabrics with earthy colors and organic shapes,” says Miranda, “giving way to a cheerful palette perfect for unwinding.” Starting with the drapery, where Chivaso’s Wild Jungle is layered adjacent to de Le Cuona’s quietly elegant Mali, the look continues with Dominique Kieffer’s Sousvide, designed by Paola Navone, seamlessly applied to the surface of the bar cart. Hunt Slonem’s Fritillery for Groundworks takes flight on a decorative marble slab, while Slonem’s Catelayas 2 makes its way into a mirrored frame on the gallery wall. Navone’s Quai Branly cloaks the armchair to complete the scene. Says Uribe, “In this space, materials set the temperature but color and print dictate the mood.”

Eternity Each of us experiences the inside and outside of our lives on a daily basis. On the outside we arm ourselves in order to protect our internal life, our intimacy, our loved ones, and our personal beliefs. We have one face we share with the world, while watchful that nothing penetrates the sanctity of our internal peace. From inside we have all the windows to the world, but we only open them to the ones we trust. In â€œEternityâ€? we live peacefully encompassed by the healing rose, symbolizing Compassion and Love.

ELIZABETH ROBERTS ARCHITECT ENSEMBLE ARCHITECTURE, DPC
Architecture: The Zio buffet’s strength is in its simplicity of form, the natural grain of the wood, and its long, low proportions. It’s classic. Creativity: As a whole, Zio feels both solid and subtle, while angled, rounded legs offer a whimsical element. I think we’re drawn to fun, accessible environments, and playful pieces like this create a nice juxtaposition to older, more detailed furnishings, art or architecture. Impression: A statement piece should be bold and noticed. This buffet’s refined details and sleek silhouette make it just that.
SARA COLOMBO CURATOR NEST CASA
Design: The collection is unmistakably Rodarte. This rug gives the illusion of lace and a feeling of romance. Imagination: Each design speaks to fantasy and has an ethereal quality. The overlay technique has such organic movement. Storytelling: The provenance of objects in the home is truly meaningful. Every collected piece should tell a story and become part of your own narrative. Color: I am a big believer in color and love that the hues in this line are strong but not overpowering. I can see the Cobalt Motif design under the blue velvet couches in my sitting room.

Feel: Supernova is ethereal and weightless, with a classic, nostalgic appeal. It was designed to be touched. Look: The celestial, space-age aesthetic of the desk brings me back to seeing the Milky Way at Ayers Rock in Australia. The onyx panel illuminates, like the quiet glowing band spread across the night sky in an abstract, almost haunting way. Vision: It is crucial to have passion, to dive into a design concept and be inspired by it. Striking a particular balance between form and function is the ultimate art form.

CRAFTSMAN JEFF MARTIN JOINERY
Designer: Dan Yeffet has a strong command of authorship running through his entire body of work. I love his adventurous material studies and conceptual thinking. Composition: The Peacock candleholders have a great mix of rich, opulent materials being utilized for such a primitive form of light. The polished brass reflects the light and enhances it from a technical standpoint. The simple structure of the two separate pieces coming together is intelligent and subtle, while the pieces themselves are cheeky and whimsical. Creativity: Artists should have fun playing with concepts or production methods. Imagination seems to be the way of driving innovation forward.

Composition: What appeals to me about the Asscher chandelier are the contradicting notions within the design. It is a daring piece that is geometrically composed yet remains unpredictable.

What was your inspiration behind this palette bursting with color? The original space was a bit overwhelming with dark stained wood throughout. The thought of painting it was unnerving, but the client wanted to take the space from “old world” to “timeless with sass!” We were able to get there with shades of white as the base, infused with dashes of vibrant color. The neutral palette begged to be dressed up with a richly hued throw pillow, artwork and rug. Since it’s so bold, I assume the artwork was the jumping-off piece? Surprisingly, the art was actually an afterthought. The room had been painted and the furniture was purchased, but in order to button it up it needed a certain pop of something spectacular. I chose the piece by Bob Knox because it was so the client— young and unafraid to take color risks. The foyer often acts as an unloading place for keys, bags and shoes. How do you ensure that the space remains both beautiful and practical? In this instance, I considered those elements and worked in the antique console table and gilded chair to house items when dropped at the door. There should always be a place to sit, a place to hang things, and, also, a little bit of eye candy. Interior Design / Andrea Schumacher / Andrea Schumacher Interiors / andreaschumacherinteriors.com.

dining room TAKING A CASUAL YET SOPHISTICATED APPROACH, DESIGNER BARBARA MULLEN CREATES AN INTIMATE SPACE FLECKED IN GOLDEN TONES.
I can’t peel my eyes from the jewel of the room: the chandelier. The Jean de Merry chandelier was something I found early on. It was such a special piece that I immediately knew it was perfect for this space. The juxtaposition of the dark finish worked so well with the fumed white-oak millwork and plaster walls. I love the idea of a clean space highlighted with a striking sculptural element. What other elements also lend to the clean, sophisticated vibe? The architect, Cottle Carr Yaw, provided a beautiful backdrop for me to work with. The subtle play on color—found in the fresh pop of yellow from the Castel linen on the dining chairs—offers a unique golden tint to the room. The client loved this color and it paired perfectly with the dark walnut table and chairs. The yellow flows over onto a funky vintage lamp that is balanced by a quartet of artwork, all highlighted by recessed lighting that can be dimmed to create varying moods.

Should a dining room be a space reserved for special occasions or for everyday use? A dining room should definitely be both. It should be a flexible space worthy of either an intimate dinner party or hosting a large crowd. I think this particular space reflects the best of both worlds. The table can be adjusted depending on the number of guests and is paired with durable fabrics found in the rug and cushions, making it ideal for all styles of entertaining.

girl’s bedroom SOFT COLORS AND GRAPHIC PRINTS PROVE TIMELESS IN THIS ROOM BY THE DESIGN TEAM OF PETRA RICHARDS AND KRISTINA STERLING.
I’m so taken aback with the play on both color and pattern. We wanted to design the room in various ways and the mix of different patterns and textures creates a sense of playfulness. The bold black-and-cream pattern of the draperies and pillows adds a certain element of drama to the space. We originally considered the hand-printed wallpaper in a black-and-white version, but after careful deliberation, we settled with a more soothing color choice.
It’s not very common to paint a ceiling. The walls and ceilings are the canvas of a room, so we don’t believe in leaving them white. In this case, we chose the soft pink color of the ceiling to complement the custom blush-hued duvet featuring Schumacher’s Chinois Palais fabric, truly grounding and connecting the space. The silk pillow on the bed adds yet another subdued accent.
Did your design choices naturally reveal such a sophisticated and playful space? Our focus was ensuring that the space was timeless. The bronze statue draws attention to the window, which overlooks the Denver Botanic Gardens, while the playful artwork and candytinted table lamps provide extra pops of color. We paired the textural modern rug beneath a classic chandelier to add a hint of sparkle and glamour.

an in-depth exploration into whatâ€™s new and notable in kitchen design. written bY arlyn hernandez
THE NEW MODERN KITCHEN when it comes to modern kitchen design, there are two distinct schools of thought: one embraces the simplicity and sheer functionality with zeal, while the other remains unconvinced, preferring the welcoming aesthetic of a more traditional style. regardless of your persuasion, thereâ€™s no denying the downright impressive innovations and design gusto being cooked up as of late that could convert even the most classically inclined. From mechanically operated walls that conceal gadgets and storage to intuitive appliances that learn and adapt to your cooking methods, discover the latest ingredients making up the new modern kitchen.
With the kitchen arising as the new epicenter of the home, bolder design is spicing up this bustling room. In this Hamptons residence, here and below, New York designer Guillaume Gentet created a personality-filled space using custom cabinetry by Effeti USA with whispers of lilac throughout. “People forget that the inside of a cabinet should be as pretty as the outside,” he says, referencing the violet (Pantone 7444 UP) of the island, which is echoed in the shelving concealed behind the wood panels. The owners’ art, like the Buddha sculptures by Marlene Rose, continues the artistic flavor of the room’s aesthetic.
THE FAUCET Every line and visible design element counts in a minimal space. Therefore, making major impact with a sculptural faucet, like Franke’s new Planar 8 Flex semi-professional version, is essential. The masculine, squared-off silhouette doesn’t just pack a visual punch, though; its 360-degree swiveling spout is highly functional and allows for maximum movement around the sink.

Color doesn’t have to be reserved for tableware and accents anymore: Large appliances, such as Bertazzoni’s Pro48 6G dualfuel range (shown here in a mouthwatering orange), are getting their turn in the shade game and becoming increasingly popular as owners seek to imprint their personal stamp onto every room of their home.
Designing kitchens for the past 40 years, it’s safe to say that Chicago-based Mick De Giulio knows a thing or two about what makes for successful culinary quarters. Here, the maestro lends some counsel and maps out what’s currently on his radar.
There’s no excuse for having a disorganized kitchen today with all the great solutions out there. What are some of your favorites? Motorized doors to hide nooks for small appliances and creating charging stations by putting USB ports inside of drawers are a go-to of mine. Another is a cabinet I recently designed called Metal Boy (shown above) for keeping pots and pans organized and accessible. It has recessed LED lighting so cookware is easily viewable and becomes like sculptural pieces. Metal seems to have become part of your signature look. How do you keep it from feeling too sterile? I love using silver nickel and polished stainless steel, but I always layer different materials and textures into my designs, sometimes even with very subtle changes. Honed and brushed stones, hand-scraped woods and fabrics for soft seating add comfort and are a great complement to the shine of metals. What’s exciting you right now? Steam ovens and induction cooktops. There’s so much you can do in a steam oven, from baking bread to roasting juicy meats, and induction has so many things going for it as far as safety and heat control.
Modern kitchens tend to get a bad rap for being cold and industrial, but new material combinations are changing that rather unfair judgment. Maintaining a streamlined look, this design by Eggersmann integrates solid American walnut along the space’s periphery to soften the highgloss cabinetry and hard quartz surfaces.

7 talking KiTcHEn TEcH Gone are the days of one-dimensional appliances. Ranges no longer just cook; they’ll send a text to the family when dinner is ready. Need to pre-heat your oven but you’re still at the store? Your smartphone can get that started so it’s at the perfect temperature when you get home. Here, Lamont Gaines, showroom manager of Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery in Boca Raton, Florida, breaks down the newest innovations.
Smartphone capabilities are infiltrating the appliance market. What are some highlights? The ability to measure the temperature of your meal in the oven without being anywhere near the kitchen—let alone at home—via a digital thermometer is huge right now. Also, you can now download recipes into your oven and watch cooking tutorials via a Wi-Fi-enabled touch-screen panel on your range, which is so useful for the amateur cook.
Let’s talk about innovations in cooking. What new options exist? If you have the space to accommodate it, steam ovens (like Miele’s ContourLine M Touch Combi-Steam version at left) should be strongly considered. There are models that let you store personal profiles to steam your vegetables or fish to the exact tenderness preferred. Wine storage and serving systems are becoming more prominent in the custom kitchen. Any suggestions? Dual-zone refrigeration is the only way to go to keep your whites, reds and champagnes at the appropriate temperatures. There are also dispensing systems—check out the Discovery WineStation by Dacor—that will serve just the right amount, from a taste to a full glass, and preserve the freshness of the rest of the unused bottle.

Indoor-outdoor living is king right now. Blurring the lines between inside and out is particularly successful in the kitchen, where incorporating plein-air cooking, al fresco dining and edible gardens satiates an entertaining-rich lifestyle. In this California home, I-Ching Ueng—designer and manager of Poggenpohl’s San Francisco showroom—stuck to a sleek design as not to compete with the lush garden just through the disappearing sliding glass doors. Silestone countertops in White Zeus Extreme and a stainless-steel panel backsplash reflect the sunlight to further enliven the space.

THE HARDWARE Stainless steel may reign supreme, but gold and bronze details are giving the long-standing heavyweight a run for its money. The warm and luxurious finishes add a definite je ne sais quoi and can be employed on cabinets— like Rocky Mountain Hardware’s Empire pulls—or plumbing fixtures, and bridge the gap between the modern and traditional design arenas.
Slab stone such as marble and quartz has long been the go-to countertop material in the modern kitchen for its uniform look. Though its dominance in this arena certainly isn’t subsiding, there’s been a movement toward mixing it up with more personality-driven tilework for backsplashes, floors and feature walls. Hand-painted tiles lend a human touch to an otherwise pristine space. Though be advised: The graphic nature of this look is not for the demure design enthusiast.

A brawny hood has always been a staple in a well-stocked kitchen, but they can be a bit of a blemish if the intent is to keep everything as simple and unassuming as possible. Enter the decorative ventilation option. These new devices are masters of disguise, hiding in plain sight in the shape of chandeliers and lighting fixtures, disappearing into countertops at the push of a button, or taking sculptural form like in Elica’s Space model that not only looks completely unexpected, but is also 35-percent quieter than traditional designs.

However, open shelving concepts are breaking that mold. “We wanted a sense of openness and casual ease,” says California designer Vanessa Alexander of the kitchen space shown at left she remodeled for a Malibu beach house. “I avoid upper cabinetry as much as possible. Floating shelving provides a greater sense of space and can be dressed in such a flexible way with practical and décor items that lend life, color and texture.” Tip: Stick to a cohesive palette for any tableware on display to achieve a polished look.
Induction cooking has been a burgeoning trend in culinary technology over the past few years, competing side by side with its electric and gas counterparts. The newest offerings, such as Gaggenau’s CX 491 full-surface cooktop, right, are taking the already beloved advantages of speed and safety to the next level with intuitive free-positioning abilities. What exactly does that mean? Place cookware anywhere on the surface, and the stove will instantly detect its individual location, size and shape, heating up only that precise spot to the specified temperature. It’s so inherently practical, it’ll make you wonder where this functionality has been all along.
The kitchen drawer has been elevated countless notches with storage solutions that would make even the most meticulous homeowner weak in the knees. Shown here is SieMatic’s aluminum interior accessories system, which features an integrated spice rack, USB connections, an angled knife block and anti-slip inserts. Fully customizable, no space is lost, keeping every spatula, cutting board and measuring spoon in the order best suited to the user.

Families are gravitating toward the kitchen more and more for all aspects of living. Homework is worked on at the island, conversations are had at the breakfast bar, so itâ€™s no wonder that the call for a more fluent dialogue between rooms is being answered. Snaideroâ€™s Way design, for instance, showcases an open library unit and styling evocative of furniture. Modular pieces let the homeowner lay out any footprint they want to create a seamless transition from one area to the next.

DEBBIE KLEIN ART + SOUL GALLERY
1615 Pearl Street Boulder, Colorado 303.544.5803 email@example.com artandsoulboulder.com
“I am so impressed and amazed by the amount of creativity in the world,” enthuses Art + Soul Gallery owner Debbie Klein. A longtime art aficionado, Klein’s professional evolution from student to artist to owner is both personal and pragmatic—a fine balance of impulse (she moved to Boulder “to make jewelry and see as many Grateful Dead shows as possible”); intuition (she grew up in a family of collectors); and experience (her first job out of school was in customer service for Christie's auction house). The Boulder-based Art + Soul Gallery, founded more than 15 years ago, is a culmination of a lifetime immersed in the art world. “I get so excited to be able to bring in exceptional work to share with my clients,” Klein says. “I have love and passion for the artists, designers and the work I represent.”
What do you like most about your job? I love making the connections between people and art. The emotional component that attaches someone to a painting or a piece of jewelry is fun to discover. How would you describe the personality of your business? Denim and diamonds! We love the casual, low-key sophistication of Boulder, and that is reflected in our gallery. My staff and I strive to create a place where everyone feels welcome, comfortable and gets the personal attention they deserve. What are the key influences in your work today? I look at both fine art and jewelry from the perspective of my clients. One decision influences the next. There is so much amazing work out there, but not everything fits our aesthetic or our market.
What projects have brought you the most satisfaction and why? Our first introduction to many of our long-term clients began with assisting them in the purchase of their engagement ring or wedding set. We have had several proposals in the gallery; all of them have said yes!
1. The Art + Soul “gallerinas.” Their warmth, professionalism and enthusiasm are the key components in being voted No. 1 in readers’ polls for more than a decade. 2. This is our greeter, customer service rep and all-around guard dog, Harry Winston Klein. 3. Not only can you find love at the gallery, but also hope, joy, peace, dreams and magic.
Is your work easily recognizable? Why or why not? The artists and designers we carry have become our brand. There is a consistency that runs through the work in terms of quality and exceptional design that makes it distinctively ours. Who has most influenced your work? My grandmother Mim. She loved beautiful things and had the best sense of style in all aspects of her life. She taught me that you cannot buy happiness, but treating yourself every once in a while can certainly make you smile.

Balanced Living thanks to a thoughtful architect, a boulder couple receive a home that respects not only its historic surroundings but their contemporary tastes as well. written by mindy pantiel / photography by emily minton redfield
s architect dale hubbard can attest, building a modern home in a historic district is never easy. there are local review boards to contend with, not to mention concerned neighbors who feel that the new house will somehow contradict the local vernacular. so when hubbard’s clients purchased a property in boulder’s coveted mapleton historic district with plans to go contemporary, he knew he had to tread lightly. “this area is considered the jewel in boulder’s historic crown, so there were lots of eyes on this project as we moved forward,” he says. a pair of outdoor enthusiasts with two young daughters, owners John and lisa canova had searched for five years when they finally found a partially built site. “the previous owners had scrapped an existing house and built the foundation, but eventually chose to discontinue the project,” says John, noting the past owners had also managed to receive approval for a bauhaus-inspired building. even though it was a far cry from the stately victorians and grand brick estates that dominate the area, and despite an expiration date on those already approved plans, the way had been paved for the new owners’ desired modern structure. “we decided to take a slightly different approach this time around,” says hubbard, whose inclusion of a gable roof in his initial drawings must have had the entire neighborhood breathing a collective sigh of relief. “we wanted to pay reverence to a certain typology, but rather luxe interiors + design / 237
The hunt for comfortable seating for the living room resulted in a natural linen Restoration Hardware sofa and a pair of Fritz Hansen wicker chairs arranged in front of a Kansas limestone fireplace.

Thanks to a combination of vertical stained-wood siding, divided light aluminum-clad windows and blued-steel paneling, the rear exterior of the house has a decidedly contemporary look. The walk-out basement patio includes chairs from Restoration Hardware.

than a high Victorian we opted for an interpretation of the more demure mining structures that were prevalent in this area years ago.” That resolve translated into simple single windows and a deep front porch on the street side and more complex fenestration, including a wall of sliding doors that opens to the creek, on the rear exterior. “The house almost deconstructs from front to back,” says Hubbard, who incorporated the foundation and an original freestanding garage they were required to keep into the new design. “It’s always a challenge to work with an established footprint but this one made sense, and the garage, a leftover from the 1970s, was fairly modern.” Complementing the more classical roof and porch elements is a materials palette that works with the mixed architectural message. Wide flange steel columns support the welcoming entry, and the overall structure is a combination of stained-wood siding and limestone. “We were very specific about the way we implemented the stone, and I worked closely with the masons to make it look more like something you’d see in an old structure,” says Hubbard about the nod to the surrounding homes. Inside, the open floor plan and a sculptural woodsteel-and-glass staircase are pure 21st century. “We treat every new staircase as an exciting design element and distinct vertical space,” says Hubbard. “It’s not just about how you go up and down; it’s what you see along the way that’s important.” Among the sights is a tongue-and-groove ceiling that connects the living room, dining area and kitchen— which contractor Kevin Morningstar says illustrates the architect’s keen eye for subtle detail. “We were trying to figure out how to deal with the seam between the ceiling and wall, and it was Dale’s idea to tuck in a piece of steel trim all the way around, almost like a reveal,” says Morningstar. “It’s one of those things most people wouldn’t notice, but if it wasn’t there, they would.” luxe interiors + design / 243

The lavish deck punctuates the indoor-outdoor nature of the house with seating that includes views of the creek, where all manner of wildlife routinely gather. The chaise lounges by the fire pit are from Smith & Hawken, and the dining table and chairs are from Crate & Barrel.
Throughout the entire project, John, who runs an advertising consulting firm, and Lisa, a teacher, weighed in on finishes, furnishings and artwork. By their own admission, they spent hours on the Internet to find the right linen sofas for the living room and the perfect Ralph Lauren chairs to surround the custom black walnut dining table, the latter fashioned from wood salvaged from a tree cut down by the city near their previous home. “Lisa likes color, but I’m more into neutrals and clean lines,” says John, explaining the quiet hues that define the open space. In direct contrast, the artwork tends toward the bold and colorful, and much of it shares one common theme. “Most of the pieces were painted by Los Angeles-based surfers,” says John, who along with his wife also runs 248 / luxe interiors + design
luxury surf and yoga retreats in Costa Rica and Mexico. “This is a family home, so it was important to have some elements of warmth.” Nowhere is that more obvious than in the kitchen, where the rich walnut cabinetry and expansive marbletopped island firmly beckon all who enter to come in and hang out. From there, it’s just steps to the outdoor living area, where the deck provides ample room for lounging, eating and watching the elk, bears, foxes and even the occasional mountain lion that wander into their creekside locale. “We love the floor plan and the connection to the outdoors,” says John. “It’s amazing that we are just four blocks to Boulder’s busy downtown, but when we’re out here it’s like we live in a wildlife preserve.”

hen Stephen Shachtman wants to wow visitors with Colorado’s scenic beauty he takes them to Devil’s Backbone. “It’s close to our Loveland home (a midcentury remodel-in-progress he shares with his wife and infant son) and there’s an amazing little hiking trail with great rock formations and views,” says the artist and sculptor whose unabashed love of the outdoors is central to his life and his work. Shachtman’s earlier sculptures feature organic shapes inspired by an encounter with a giant squid or images of distant cosmic nebulae, while his recent body of work highlights linear forms reminiscent of the monolith in the opening scenes of 2001: A Space Odyssey. “In a way, all of my work is wrapped around science and nature,” he explains. “Gravity just pulls me in that direction.” From the confines of his metal shop near downtown Denver, where he also creates utilitarian pieces like lighting, railings and planters, Shachtman employs a chain hoist to move massive steel sheets and sculptures without assistance. Ultimately, he transforms the raw materials into fine art sculptures such as Bridge, voted best new public art by a local publication in 2013. Located in southwest Denver, this minimalist assemblage of Corten steel, polished granite and sheets of laminated glass resembles an open doorway. “I like the idea of my work being used as a gateway,” Shachtman says. “I have always been drawn to creating an environment for people to experience going through or around, like a portal to what I imagine.” Shachtman earned his Master of Fine Arts in jewelry design and metalsmithing, both of which he continues to teach at Metro State University and Arapahoe Community College. And while those skills comprise a relatively small portion of his work, they exert a clear influence on his larger creations. “My interest is in applying smaller techniques to larger concepts, and some of my sculptures are actually reminiscent of jewelry,” says Shachtman, who calls on jewelry and metalsmithing techniques like enameling, piercings and hammer forming/texturing to create a narrative thread. To add color and patina, the artist incorporates stacked, laminated glass and applies acrylic paint, enamels and various chemicals like liver of sulfur and acids. “It’s all self-driven,” Shachtman explains about his solitary process. “My end product always represents me, and it’s something I plan to be doing for the rest of my life. There is no exit strategy.” L 252 / luxe interiors + design

he half-acre was the last vacant lot in a coveted neighborhood in the Beaver Creek Resort and featured panoramic views, including those of the White River National Forest, that were stupendous. But there were reasons the property had remained unclaimed: In addition to possible soil settlement issues, the extremely steep site had a 40-foot elevation change from front to back. To build the expansive home the owners wanted, it would take a clever design and some fancy feats of engineering. After interviewing several architects, the owners clicked with Kyle Webb, who not only welcomed the challenge but also promptly assembled his dream
team of interior designer Jan Chenault, builder Travis Bossow and project manager Stacey Goehring to get the job done. “Along with the owners, we had a really good team,” says Chenault, who cites the project as her favorite in a 37-year career. “Everyone talked to each other, and we had tremendous respect all around.” Being simpatico counts big time when a project takes 2 1/2 years, including one just to secure permits. “In Beaver Creek the approval process is complicated, to say the least,” explains Webb, referring to the meticulous environmental, neighborhood and zoning restrictions in addition to special codes for snow, wind and energy conservation. And, of course, the

community has to weigh in. “We worked out a very specific building envelope and then tweaked it a few times,” he says, noting one neighbor was concerned that a gable overhang on the entry would block the view. In response, Webb swiftly replaced the obstructing roof form with a smaller sod roof still in keeping with the modified stone farmhouse design. A green advocate, the architect incorporated other sustainable features such as a solar thermal water system and ample natural day lighting into the getaway, which is used year-round for ski holidays and as a respite from the hot summers of the owners’ native Florida. To further save energy the house was divided into three levels, with the top floor (living/ dining room, kitchen, master suite and sitting room) functioning as a self-contained apartment when the couple are there by themselves. When guests pile in, they open the middle level, which contains three bedrooms and a rec room, and when there’s a full house, three additional bedrooms on the lower level allow the house to sleep up to 18. Bossow’s first order of business was to shore up the road in front of the house to bear construction equipment. Then, he spent two months painstakingly pouring the foundation in four stages, employing 30 square feet of rigid foam fill to stabilize the auto courtyard. “Our company was able to realize significant savings for the owners by reducing concrete and backfill with the utilization of the rigid foam fill that also diminished lateral pressure on the foundation walls,” says Bossow. The effort allows the house to hang out over the hill, making the inhabitants feel as if they are floating over the mountains. Indeed, there are 180-degree views, as windows take up most of the walls. Natural light floods every space, even the game room, where the light comes down through 16-foot-tall window wells. Taking her cue from the surrounding wilderness, as well as the structure’s contemporary clean lines and stone, metal, glass and wood palette, Chenault created a soothing color scheme of rich grays and browns punctuated by bursts of orange and green in the main living areas and a flourish of hot pink in the daughter’s room. The cathedral ceilings of the kitchen, game room and living room are clad in locally harvested beetle-kill pine that, according to Bossow, came with its own set

of challenges. “The material is somewhat unstable if not properly dried and maintained. If the wood isn’t super dry, it warps, shrinks and twists, so we try to eliminate as much of that ugliness as possible,” he explains, noting his crews spent hours handpicking the best pieces to achieve the desired warm, rustic look. Early in the process, Chenault and Webb took their clients to a Denver stone yard, where they managed to find all the slabs they needed for the entire house in one day, including copper-colored marble for the spa, mottled black granite for a powder room vanity and gray granite for the kitchen counters. “That particular day they had the most interesting stone I’ve
ever seen,” Chenault recalls. “They had this onyx that looked like billowing clouds, all golds and grays. I wasn’t sure what we would do with it, but we just had to have it.” That onyx became the pièce de résistance as a massive fireplace surround in the master bedroom, where instead of laminating it directly to the wall, the stone was installed on top of sheets of LED lights. Chenault says the effect exceeded her wildest dreams. “When the fire is lit and the lights are on, the stone just glows, bathing the room in this golden aura,” she says. “The result, like everything in this house, is absolutely magical.” L

“HUMOR AND WIT ARE NON-THREATENING WAYS OF EXPRESSING MY PERSPECTIVE. I WANT MY WORK TO BE JOYFUL BUT IT’S A LITTLE SUBVERSIVE, TOO.”
ith so much of contemporary art trending bolder these days, Margaret Kasahara’s colorful interpretations of diversity, identity and culture have a welcome witty and personal quality. Relying on metaphors that are both humorous and interpretive—a cowboy hat and a hamburger share a canvas with sushi and cherry blossoms—the Asian American of Japanese descent voices her dialogue through form, color and composition, the effect both light-hearted and provocative. “Humor and wit are non-threatening ways of expressing my perspective,” explains the former commercial illustrator. “I want my work to be joyful but it’s a little subversive, too.” The artist’s recent work focuses on how identity is shaped by relationships and the culture in which we live. “I explore ideas, perception and misperception, and how assumption and stereotypes are restricting and limiting,” she says noting a painting titled Role Models, which features four symbols representing women of Japanese heritage with each symbol meant to evoke a certain stereotype. “I’m expressing the absence of strong Asian American role models in our culture.” Kasahara, who lives and works in Colorado Springs, first began painting when she was a young student. “I think of my interest in the arts as a calling—something I have to do,” she says. Her works are often defined by bright colors, detailed textures, minimal form and a
graphic two-dimensional quality that sends a clear, crisp message. “In the period just prior to my current work I painted large fruit still lifes and used them metaphorically to express ideas of belonging and the relationship of individuals to the group,” she says, referencing an image of a bowl of fruit with an apple on the side to make her point. Favoring oils, oil sticks and found objects like fabric, glass and mirror, Kasahara produces roughly eight pieces a year on her signature 48-by-48-inch canvases as well as some smaller drawings and mixed-media pieces. Moving forward she is likely to continue utilizing her own experiences as inspiration. “I’ve discovered the more personal I’ve become with my work the more universal it has become,” she says. “By sharing honest and intimate feelings about ourselves and our lives, we find we have much in common—shared hopes, fears and dreams.”

t came as quite a surprise to Gene Gay and David Thompson that moving from San Francisco to Denver would involve more than just a shift in geography and altitude. As they discovered, the clean, contemporary lines and open layouts so prevalent in Bay Area homes were not the norm in the Mile High City, where designs trend on the more traditional side. In fact, finding a modern floor plan to accommodate the weekly dinner parties they routinely host for anywhere from two to 30 people required some effort. “We looked at about 50 homes in two weeks,” Gene recalls. The search ended with an airy house in Washington Park that had it all: a modern look, open floor plan and close proximity to downtown. In building the house, the husband-wife team of Jamie Beard and Pete Aurzadniczek had coincidentally crafted the interior spaces with entertaining in mind. “If I were hosting a party, I would want to be able to see everyone who’s there,” says Beard, noting the home’s top level is supported by a series of exposed I-beams rather than load-bearing walls, leaving the main floor wide open for bigger gatherings. To bring the interiors alive with color and personality, the couple wanted a designer willing to challenge their tendency to play it safe. “It’s not that we didn’t like or want to use color, but left to our own devices, we usually end up with a fairly limited palette,” Gene admits. “We needed someone to push us out of our comfort zone.” Gene, an executive chef, and David, executive vice president of global operations and technology for Western Union, selected designers Katie Schroder and Erika Rundiks to tackle the task. They admired the team’s deft use of strong colors and clean-lined designs, which they hoped would provide a catalyst for changing things up. “Beyond budget and discussing how we live and use spaces, we really gave them no guidance,” says Gene. The designers quickly realized that despite the home’s architectural lines, their clients weren’t interested in a minimalist look. “Whenever we suggested things in that style, they would say ‘No,’ ” Rundiks says. “We ended up showing them a hundred fabrics in seven different color schemes so that they could see how the patterns and colors relate within each scheme.” The couple’s classic leanings became apparent when they immediately gravitated toward herringbone linen, tartan plaid and velvet striping. Gene first fell in love with a bright yellow silk striped in turquoise plaid, which when transformed into accent pillows delivered a shot of adrenaline to the tailored gray living room sofa. In the dining area, a wool tartan in similar shades highlights the winged host chairs set against a wall of cobalt lacquered cabinetry. “We loved the deep blue,” Schroder says. “It’s vibrant and eye-catching but subtle, and because the design of the built-ins is fairly simple, it can handle the color.”
“Texture and finish can be just as much of a strong point as contrasting colors.” -Katie Schroder
The neutral walls and rough-stacked fireplace surround provide a calming juxtaposition to the effusive hues. “Texture and finish can be just as much of a strong point as contrasting colors,” Schroder explains, noting the variation between the uneven marble blocks around the fireplace and the raw steel beams, glossy lacquered cabinetry and rich upholstery. According to the design duo, the same philosophy also holds true with wallcoverings, which they layered lavishly. In the home office, turquoise grass cloth is an organic counterpoint to sleek gray built-ins, while the strong verticals of a different grass cloth give backbone to the diagonal metal staircase. “The homeowners love wallpaper, because it’s a way to create a really crisp canvas with pops of interesting color,” says Rundiks, who selected a metallic pattern in one guest room that makes it glow in the evening light. Elsewhere, tile, fabric and rug patterns provide additional “wow” moments. The lower level gets energy from the speckled lobster-colored ceramic backsplash in the second kitchen installed so Gene could develop recipes for Étonné, the catering company he started after the move. Orange tones extend through the rest of the space, along with touches of the now-familiar turquoise. For continuity, those same tones also appear in the outdoor living areas. Upstairs, Gene and David wanted the master suite to resemble their favorite hotels in London, such as The Soho, whose rooms have tall headboards upholstered in bold patterns with complementary draperies against monochromatic walls. Schroder and Rundiks put their own spin on that idea with lipstick red walls and a canopied headboard in dramatic black and khaki prints. “The wall is the punch,” Rundiks says, “and the canopy is the main stage.” Now fully at home in his Denver digs, Gene claims the designers were successful in attaining the energy and color that the couple sought. “When I’m relaxing in the living room, I see the yellow/turquoise plaid to my left, the red cabinet in the entry and on into the sitting room,” says the homeowner. “The color combinations are beautiful and there’s a wonderful flow that just feels right.” luxe interiors + design / 275
