Inspiration For over two decades, Hudson Valley Lighting has been driven by Founder and Owner David Littman’s vision to produce timeless, heirloom-quality collections through a wide range of styles from the 19th and 20th centuries. ARTISAN CRAFTSMANSHIP

Hudson Valley Lighting is dedicated to artisan craftsmanship in creating masterful, high-quality designs with a focus on exceptional materials and careful attention to detail. The results speak for themselves—antique-quality lighting designs that look beautiful for generations to come.

UNIQUE AESTHETICS

When I see a piece of antique furniture, my imagination goes wild about its history and how the lines and details are still relevant today. Great design is something that spurs curiosity, imagination and emotion. — DAVID LITTMAN

Spanning in style from historic to artisan and transitional to contemporary, Hudson Valley Lighting uses high-grade materials such as solid cast brass, crystal, acrylic and blown glass. Superior manufacturing techniques, such as brass forging and hand-rubbed finishes, along with innovative technologies, allows one to appreciate the difference firsthand.

AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE

The quality and spectacular beauty of each Hudson Valley Lighting fixture can’t be found in more industrialized products. This unique experience, not typically seen in lighting design, provides its owners with a profound sense of pride and extreme appreciation for a lifetime of enjoyment.

Where Are You heAded? In the world of design, journeying—in some way, shape or form—is a constant. The turn around a showroom corner can lead to an inspiring discovery. An architectural structure rising from the landscape might spur a Moleskine full of ideas. From early September through late June, the pace in our industry is rapid-fire with fresh introductions in textiles, furniture, lighting, home accents and materials. To a large extent, this is what stimulates us, excites us, and nudges the design zeitgeist along. If ever there was a time to decelerate though, it is summer, when the pace slackens and so many escape to far-flung places (Will everyone be shopping in Europe this summer? Seems so). Taking a journey—whether it’s as modest as transitioning from your living room to the backyard for an afternoon, or more elaborate, as in two weeks overseas—further encourages the design dialogue. For those of us with a desire to remain curious, and sweep through life with a fine-tuned eye, the adventure never stops.

NEW+NOW GET TO KNOW FIVE TEXAS INFLUENCERS AS THEY SHED LIGHT ON WHAT’S OF THE MOMENT IN DESIGN, ART AND ARCHITECTURE. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ

1

1 THE DESIGNER

2 THE CURATOR

What’s exciting you lately? The line between art and furniture is blurring. Galleries like Maison Gerard in New York and Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London feature examples of how these worlds are merging.

Intriguing you now: I’m excited that the traditional hierarchy between art and craft has happily expired. I’m also delighted that visual artists who work with sound are getting more attention.

Can’t get enough of… Midcentury American art from Peyton Wright Gallery in Santa Fe, ceramic dinnerware from Tyler Hays at BDDW and the work of Ty Best from Caste— his pieces are sculptural, beautiful and altogether unique. Happening in design: I’m seeing a cross-pollination of styles, geographic locales and eras. I appreciate designers who are not bound by a purist sensibility but rather pull from many influences to create something exciting and new. The best of these will be the classics of the future. Prized possessions: A wall-hung wood carving of a horse that my father did in high school. Checking in: New York City has so many great boutique hotels. I try to stay someplace new every time I go. Two recent favorites of mine are The Ludlow and The Marlton. Supply and demand: My clients want to be able to use everything in their home without worrying about anything getting damaged, so durable outdoor fabrics by companies like Perennials and Great Outdoors are providing new possibilities for indoor upholstery that not only look and feel amazing but can literally be cleaned with bleach and not lose their color or integrity. Mark Cravotta is the owner of Austin’s Cravotta Interiors and dreams of designing an elaborate, high-end tree house for a client one day.

090 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

VERONICA ROBERTS

Having a moment: Nina Katchadourian, a Brooklyn-based artist. I’m organizing a touring exhibition of her work that will open at the Blanton in the fall of 2016, but this has really been her year. One of my favorite works by her, a video she made in 2005 called Accent Elimination, was featured in the Armenian Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia and won the most prestigious Golden Lion prize for best pavilion. She’s doing a project for MoMA in New York about dust at the museum. She always finds ways to help us look at the everyday differently. Can’t get enough of… New York-based artist Donald Moffett. Originally from San Antonio, he makes some of the most luscious monochrome paintings I know of, but also has a strong interest in history, politics and justice that I admire. When I arrived at the Blanton two years ago, I decided we needed to collect his work in depth. I’ll be presenting a small show celebrating those acquisitions this fall. International relations: I just visited the new Fondazione Prada arts complex in Milan by Rem Koolhaas. The exhibitions were revelatory and I am completely enamored of the café that Wes Anderson designed. What a brilliant idea for a museum to invite him to do this! Coming to fruition: In 2016, a building designed by Ellsworth Kelly will open on the Blanton grounds at the University of Texas at Austin. It’s the only building he’s ever designed and

has three walls of stained-glass windows, stone panels and a totemic sculpture inside. It will draw in art lovers from around the globe. I can’t wait to have this jewel of light and joy in Austin. Veronica Roberts, the Blanton Museum of Art’s Modern and Contemporary Curator, is seriously coveting a table from Garza Marfa or a chair by artist Roy McMakin from the line he’s recently produced with Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin.

Having a moment: Renzo Piano. His work is everywhere and so excellent. Where we’ll find you this summer: Admiring Piano’s work (among many others, of course) at the new Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. constant muses: So much of what impacts my work comes from Scandinavian, Latin American and Japanese cultures. More specifically, Alvar Aalto, Ricardo Legorreta and Tadao Ando. Those are the core of who my heroes are. décor wish list: An Ingo Maurer light fixture. What’s trending? Sustainability, though I hope it’s not so much a trend as a lasting practice. Architect Dick Clark of Dick Clark + Associates is anxiously waiting for someone to task him with designing an art museum. 092 / luxe interiors + design

Happening in Texas: I have been fascinated with Lawrence Halprin’s Heritage Park Plaza in Fort Worth for several years (since I hopped the fence to explore it after it was closed in 2007 due to safety concerns.) I’ve heard rumors that the city is fund-raising to renovate the park and I am hopeful that it will open to the public once again sometime soon. Must-see this summer: British artist Phyllida Barlow’s exhibition at the Nasher, entitled “Tryst,” will be unlike anything you have ever seen at the Center. On view through August 30, this monumental architectural installation will confound and disorient the viewer. Picking favorites: Nancy Grossman’s Bust of 1968 has to be my preferred piece at Nasher. Raymond and Patsy Nasher acquired the work just a year after it was completed, which I find remarkable, considering not only the subject (to put it simply, it’s a mannequin

summer itinerary: If you’re venturing out of Texas, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, is worth the trip alone. Closer to home, make time for the Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun self-portrait at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth (as well its Renzo Piano Pavilion) and shopping in the Knox-Henderson area. add to your library: Inside Design, by Michael Greer. I look to it again and again. covetable recent purchase: A one-of-a-kind Art Deco sterling silver tea service. splurge-worthy: I’d love an original piece by John Dickinson. John Phifer Marrs is an interior designer, shop owner and avid antiquer. If he had to switch jobs with anyone, it would be offbeat film director John Waters… but only for a day.

on tap for you: We have an exciting lineup of exhibits that challenge and interrogate the medium of sculpture, such as Giuseppe Penone’s quiet explorations of the metaphysical connections between art and nature, Piero Golia’s social and architectural experiment—the Chalet Dallas—that will transform the Center’s Corner Gallery into an artist’s speakeasy, and Alex Israel’s quasi-narrative installation that will comprise new sculptural objects made in the vernacular of Hollywood movies.

a love for the majestic landscapes and indigenous people of the Southwest, were featured in galleries and museums throughout New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona.

Polt’s mindful interpretations dance in front of your eyes, almost magically, to reveal his subject’s heart and soul. It’s no wonder that his commissioned artwork is prominently displayed in magnifcent homes throughout the world.

Today, Polt’s creative talent has come full circle, combining classical realism with contemporary stokes in his individual portraits. “I enjoy the challenges and heightened artistic awareness of capturing the spirit and personality of each subject,” he says.

The artist’s talents were acknowledged early in life. Polt’s frst-grade teacher, so impressed with his natural abilities, arranged for the artist’s frst one-man show. Polt remembers hosting the show at 6 years of age, sensing that his life’s purpose had been defned.

His latest project, a true showstopper, captures an array of Hollywood’s well-known personalities. You will feel as if you’ve met your favorite actor when you’re in the same room as one of these breathtaking originals. Whether a movie star, corporate CEO, military offcer or soldier, mother, father, wife, husband or child, Polt’s extraordinary talents and consummate professionalism puts everyone at a celebrated status.

He went on to earn a degree in Illustration Arts and was engaged by The Wall Street Journal to draw black and white portraits that accompanied its front-page articles. While in Manhattan, his studies continued, drawing and painting under the direction of the renowned Frank Reilly of the Art Students League. In the mid-70s, Polt changed gears: He had found fresh visual inspiration in an art community nestled in the mountains of Taos, New Mexico. He lived there for many years. His paintings, depicting

There are very few gifts as priceless as an Allen Polt original. His art will speak loudly, long after we are gone, to the many generations that follow. Polt is a member of Oil Painters of America and Portrait Society of America.

Brought together by a love of all things textile, Stacy Waggoner and Kate Reynolds teamed up to create a cutting-edge design studio offering fabrics, rugs and wallpaper motifs from top designers around the world. Now, almost a decade later, Studio Four NYC boasts some of the hottest names in textile design alongside emerging talents, with much of the duo’s success lying in their creative acuity for partnering with artists, innovators and risk-takers. This summer, Studio Four releases three not-to-be-missed lines that fit just that mold. Designer-painter Rebecca Atwood first burst onto the scene—paintbrush in hand—captivating her Instagram audience one bespoke pillow and dreamy watercolor print at a time. Her artistry soon led to a partnership between Atwood and Studio Four, one that has since developed into a blooming design venture as the Cape Cod native sets to release her debut collection of hand-painted and marbleized fabrics with the studio. “Her textiles are so chic and livable,” says Reynolds. “Be on the lookout for her wallpaper collection to launch soon.” Just when you thought leather had nothing new to offer, Brit Kleinman, of Brooklyn’s Avo, enters the field, proving the possibilities have only just begun: Her jaw-dropping block-printed cowhides, branded with bold, artistic patterns and daring geometrics, incorporate a touch of modernity into the timeworn material. “We love leather and the luxury of something that keeps getting better with age,” says Waggoner of the partnership. “Brit is changing the way that people use and experience this textile.” Studio Four’s next debut proves that the art of plaster isn’t lost but rather in a state of renaissance thanks to Celeste Coughlin of Asterisk Designs. This doyenne of Venetian

plaster developed a specialized technique for transcribing waxed plaster onto paper, coining a perfect science to translate this ancient (and tedious) process onto a custom roll of wallpaper. “We have always loved the gorgeous, creamy texture of Venetian plaster walls,” says Waggoner, “and when we met Celeste we knew we were destined for something great to unfold.” With all these exciting collections debuting this season, Studio Four’s Chelsea showroom is the perfect spot to garner inspiration for any and all design endeavors. “Design is a luxury,” says Reynolds. “It should always inspire and never intimidate.”

A HISTORICAL HAVEN IN A SEAPORT CITY, AN ACCLAIMED ATHLETIC CLUB AND A 1930S BEACHSIDE REFUGE ARE ALL GIVEN NEW LIFE BY SOME OF THE BEST NAMES IN DESIGN. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MIMI FAUCETT

An infamous, members-only social club that once entertained the likes of Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor is being boldly reimagined by acclaimed architect Richard Meier. Located in the South Florida town of Surfside, the Surf Club will be a visual dialogue between the old and the new, transforming the original 1930s club into a Four Seasons boutique hotel and residences. Meier’s material palette will be simple: Floor-to-ceiling glass will maximize horizontal views of the Atlantic Ocean, while local surfaces, namely flooring of porous coral stone, will detail the exterior. Inside, handpicked furnishings will be set amidst the clean backdrop of the architect’s signature color—white. thesurfclub.com

CHICAGO ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION CHICAGO Founded in 1890 by families of American sports royalty (think Wrigley and Spalding), the Chicago Athletic Association has been a fixture in the Windy City for more than a century. The famed location, originally designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, has now been revamped into a luxury lifestyle hotel by design duo Roman and Williams. “We were devoted to preserving the character and details of this historic building while creating a new language,” say the designers. The aesthetic maintains the building’s original fireplaces with bas-relief wood carvings, expansive marble staircases and stained glass, yet speaks to classic Americana with vintage artifacts like wooden gym ladders, Victorian-inspired lighting and leather furnishings. chicagoathletichotel.com

THE PALLADIAN HOTEL SEATTLE The Palladian Hotel, established in Seattle in 1910, was named for the Palladian windows that defined the architecture of the time. Today, San Francisco-based designer Nicole Hollis has taken this historically significant building and given it a speakeasy vibe with a sense of humor (pillows printed with Tom Selleck’s portrait, for example). Reclaimed-wood headboards juxtapose crisp, white Frette linens in the guest rooms, while brass accents, velvet upholstery and a tufted-leather check-in characterize the lobby, with the hotel’s original doors standing at the entrance of the gym. Ornamented by custom Ladies & Gentlemen light fixtures, Hollis’ warm yet playful interiors program boasts a quintessential Seattle feel and reflects the pulsating street culture found just outside. palladianhotel.com

HE SAID, SHE SAID URBAN BOY MEETS RENAISSANCE GIRL IN DESIGNER WINDSOR SMITH’S EPONYMOUS DEBUT COLLECTION FOR ARTERIORS.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS

“I want my pieces to feel like something you would hand down to the next generation,” explains designer Windsor Smith in reference to her new 40-piece collection for Arteriors. Brimming with furnishings, lighting and home accents in a range of tonal golds, mixed metals and varied marbles, the line flirts between masculine and feminine dichotomies. Case in point: Smith’s Athena sconce (shown here in silver) was inspired by the delicate drop of an earring, while the Atlas sconce (shown in gold)

reveals the same caged form but in a more industrial, geometric outline. “It is through shape and silhouette,” says Smith, “that instant sculpture is evoked.” Laced with neoclassical and GrecoRoman influences, the collection leaves a rich patina in its wake, beckoning centuries past while maintaining modern relevance. “My goal was to reinterpret traditional in a beautiful, lasting way with utilitarian pieces that are meant to be used and not thought of as too precious,” Smith explains. Mission accomplished.

GrAy MALIN TeLLS A TALe Of WhIMSy ThrOuGh SurreAL IMAGery Of ANIMALS rOAMING The PArker PALM SPrINGS. WrITTeN ANd PrOduced By jesse brAtter

Photographer Gray Malin journeys to far and away places, capturing eccentric moments that spark fantasy and wonder, like llamas adorned in balloons amidst Bolivia’s salt flats, or rainbow-hued sheep in Australia. In his new fine art series, Gray Malin at the Parker, he keeps his zest for adventure close to home, shooting at the Parker Palm Springs as exotic animals playfully explore the iconic resort that unites luxury with amusement. Malin put down his camera to discuss the enchanting series, where monkeys are bellhops and giraffes are the guests, temporarily on view at the hotel. With an infectious joie de vivre, he proves the old adage: not all who wander are lost.

How did animals become your muse? I have a deep love for flamingos and penguins and couldn’t stop envisioning them on the property. Working with them and the capuchin monkey, zebra and baby giraffe was so much fun—I wish I could live in this fantasy every day. Any divas on set? We had trainers to direct the crew and myself on how to interact with them to keep them as happy models. Zack the zebra wasn’t much of a fan of the balloons, as they kept popping, but he was a professional and we got the shot. Images of animals in dreamlike settings are one part of your repertoire, but you’re also known for aerial shots of beach scenes. How do you capture the perfect composition? When I’m in the air, people and objects begin to stand out and

form patterns below. Once I’m up there, everything magically comes together visually for me and I’m able to capture the natural art that is being created below in the distance. What’s the most daring stunt you’ve done to get the perfect shot? Standing on a 10-foot inflatable boat in the waters of Antarctica, shooting beach balls up against icebergs the size of a skyscraper that could break apart at any moment. It was the thrill of a lifetime. You’ve said your favorite part of your job is getting to see the world. Can you offer a piece of travel advice to those filled with the same wanderlust? If you’re ever in Bhutan, you must visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, one of the country’s most sacred religious sites. Built in the 8th century on the side of a cliff, it is something of another world.

dream sequence

Your new fine art series focuses on exotic animals in unexpected places. What inspired the collection? Since living in Los Angeles, I’ve always enjoyed the quick escape to the desert, and the Parker Palm Springs has been my longtime favorite hotel there. This was a chance to let my imagination run wild, and apparently it ran right into a menagerie of wild animals enjoying the hotel with me.

WRITTeN AND PRODUceD BY lisa bingham dewart

“It’s fantastic to drift and just let a place wash over you,” designer Tracey Boyd says of her approach to travel. Until recently, her chances to do just that were rare. As the creative director of the coveted fashion label Boyd, she was constantly in motion, creating edgy yet feminine clothing. Her singular vision—one collection featured fleece ball gowns—won her a New Generation Designer of the Year honor at the 2000 Rover British Fashion Awards, along with a devoted international following, but little time for anything else. “When I moved into a more organic way of designing, I decided to go on trips for two or three months,” she says. “I wanted to go deeper.” This change of focus yielded Aboydbazaar, a collection of clothing and accessories influenced by her biggest passions: life, travel, art and fashion.

Since then, Boyd has been busy soaking up the world’s sights and sounds, be it the modern shapes of Singapore’s skyline or the traditional beading practices in Penang. India remains a favorite destination and a constant source of inspiration. “It’s such a place of contrast,” says Boyd. “When I’m there, I have too many ideas. I have to file them away and then come home to make sense of them.” With the luxury of time, the designer can now absorb the lessons from her travels and incorporate them into her work, such as in her latest venture, Boyd, a line of furniture inspired by her journeys and currently available through Anthropologie. “I’m obsessed with finding out how things are done but looking at them in a contemporary way,” she says. “Then, I put my own spin on them.”

Next on Boyd’s itinerary? She’s heading to the U.S., where she’ll launch Boyd with Resource Decor at High Point Market in October. Imbued with color and texture, the line mixes modern and traditional shapes in materials ranging from lacquer and metal to concrete and shells. Before that, however, she’ll pack a bag with a sketch pad, a few of her Aboydbazaar shirts, a collection of black and white beads and a beloved Dries Van Noten scarf and head to Puglia, in Southern Italy, to a convent that was reinvented as a hotel. “It’s filled with tribal art, textiles and miles of books on art, sculpture and furniture. It’s like having a holiday in the most fabulous library with incredible food and beautiful gardens,” says Boyd. “It’s a mixture of work and play and sums up my ideal way to travel.”

#INSTACRUSH @gypsyfloral

WHO: Sunni Graham and Emily Reid, two freespirited Texans who joined forces to open Gypsy Floral & Events in funky Austin. WHAT: You’ll find plenty of earthy and rustic arrangements and interesting compositions full of hazy succulents and cacti in their “luxe Bohemian” Instagram feed. Also, expect a few behind-thescenes shots of flowers in the raw and sneak peeks of the duo’s beautifully messy studio floor. WHY: Graham and Reid strive to capture a moment in time—one that’s representative of the larger aesthetic of the event they’re working on—a mostly easy feat considering the flowers and gorgeous objects they’re surrounded by every day. IN THEIR WORDS: “People have always been enamored with the natural beauty of flowers, but most people don’t see flowers up close all the time, so photographing them makes them more accessible to the rest of the world. Photography also makes something ephemeral last forever.” 118 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

It has been more than 15 years since the Pearl Brewing Company packed up production and headed south to brew their beer in Fort Worth. Their 22-acre San Antonio complex, however, stayed and sat empty for years until Silver Ventures, a private equity firm led by city native Christopher “Kit” Goldsbury, saw the potential to build out a culinary-centric neighborhood. Dozens of high-end shops and celebrated restaurants followed. Now, the latest addition comes in the form of a beautiful boutique hotel housed in the original brewhouse and designed by the New York-based firm Roman and Williams. When Hotel Emma opens this fall, it will showcase elements of its former life—turn-of-the-century industrial equipment reimagined as light fixtures, cast-iron spiral staircases, original exposed-brick walls and wood-beamed and pressed-tin ceilings—all alongside hospitality’s most modern conveniences. thehotelemma.com

CURATOR “At first glance, Blue Print in Dallas appears to be a quaint furniture and accessories shop, but if you take a closer look, you’ll fi nd an amazing collection of one-of-a-kind artwork from a plethora of talents. The art ranges from colorful abstracts to neutral sketches, and everything in between.”

“Kuhl-Linscomb in Houston is an experience in itself; it’s almost like a compound, comprised of five separate buildings, and it carries everything from linens and fi ne china to wonderful furniture pieces. I also love Mecox for antiques. They have a constantly evolving inventory spanning nearly every era you can think of.”

“Houston’s Laura Rathe Fine Art has a great variety of pieces from artists all over Texas. I am especially drawn to their latest collection from Meredith Pardue, an artist out of Austin. I’ve also been working with up-andcoming artist Cyndy Aldred. She is still a bit under the radar and I love that.”

“The art scene in Marfa is dynamic right now: There is an incredible energy and so many talented people. The town has unique offerings in everything from film, theatre, poetry and music to robotics, geology and meditation—creativity infuses everything. Keep an eye out for Robert Irwin’s permanent, large-scale installation at The Chinati Foundation, scheduled to open in 2016. Ballroom Marfa is special in town because of the ambition of the artist-driven projects and commissioned installations. I’m looking for risk-taking, relevance and quality. These opportunities allow artists to immerse themselves in a radically different environment and offer something new to the natural and cultural landscape.”

THE MAKER TYSON PENDERGRASS

Woodworking runs in the blood of Tyson Pendergrass, one half of the team behind Austin’s Petrified Design, along with co-designer Gable Bostic. “We both come from families that work with their hands, and we wanted to continue that tradition,” says Pendergrass. After bonding in college over their love for design and architecture, the two moved to the Texas Hill Country and took up residence in an old cabin built by Bostic’s father. It was there that they conceptualized their first furniture pieces. We spoke with Pendergrass about his take on quality craftsmanship and sustainable design. petrifieddesign.com Describe your aesthetic. The idea for Petrified Design took shape when we started bending metal rods. It gave us direction and established a background for our design principles. Removing unnecessary components in the construction process gives purpose to every detail in a design. We believe that honesty in design is one of the main ingredients in creating a timeless piece. Favorite material to work with? Wood. The material itself is beautiful, organic and each piece and grain of it tells a different story. We love to mix it with other materials that complement and highlight its best properties to create pieces that are made to last.

120 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

What inspires you? We draw ideas for our pieces from our surroundings, and we think there’s value and significance in using local, sustainable materials. It’s always special to see how someone interprets our designs in their own lives, and helping make that vision come alive keeps us going. Share your process. First, we take to our sketchbooks and figure out the overall design. From there, we adjust it using computer software and work out all the details and angles. After we’ve created something we’re happy with, we build a prototype and test it thoroughly for comfort and durability. Only then do we put it into production in our workshop.

SANDRA JORDAN: SONOMA COUNTY

MONTROSE SHOP When did you open? We welcomed our first guests to our shop at 1723 Westheimer Road in Houston in January 2015. Why Houston? The city is going through a renaissance where people are curious about smaller makers and supporting homegrown businesses; it was the perfect place to plant our Paris-meets-Texas-inspired brand. Tell us about the space. My co-owner Kim Nguyen and I built an aesthetic that is uniquely ours—a marriage of Kim’s risky and feminine style with my rustic, practical approach. We worked with Bob Martin of Merge Studios to custom-design the shelves and tables while keeping the integrity of the space. Will you be hosting events? We’ll be bringing the community together over a great meal with our quarterly Montrose Dinner Series. On the horizon? We’re launching our online concept in early June—it’s a flash sale meets pop-up e-commerce site. Every quarter, we’ll offer 25 of our favorite products for a limited time or until that item sells out. montroseshop.com

9 a.m. Start the day at Shed for breakfast—its architecture by Jensen Architects is beautiful, and it carries wonderful items for the house and garden. It also serves a custom blend made by my favorite local coffee house, Flying Goat Coffee.

10 a.m. After breakfast, check out the Harry and Maggie Wetzel Native Plant Garden. It’s a tiny hideaway reclaimed from an old parking lot with more than 80 species of native plants each grouped by habitat. 10:30 a.m. Hit the Healdsburg Farmers’ Market. Most of the produce is grown within 10 miles of the market, so it’s a great place to get the freshest Dry Creek peaches. I also always get my veggie starters here. 11:30 a.m. Take an art walk along Grove Street on the Foss Creek Pathway on your way to the main square in Healdsburg. It’s sponsored by the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation, and it’s beyond lovely.

12 p.m. Next, visit the Plaza. It’s our main square, and it has some wonderful art and design destinations, including my favorite: Saint Dizier Home. The store features local, handmade metal furniture—from tables of all shapes and sizes to beds, stools and shelving. Artist Aletha Soulé also displays her amazing wine country-inspired ceramics here. 1 p.m. Stop for lunch at Barndiva. It’s one of my favorite spots in Healdsburg and highlights the best ingredients from Sonoma and Mendocino counties. The chef, Ryan Fancher, has worked with Thomas Keller at The French Laundry in Yountville and Per Se in New York. All of the food is superb; plus, my fabric—Prima Alpaca—is used on an upholstered wall here, which provides a showcase for their rotating selection of artwork. 2 p.m. A visit to wine country would not be complete without a wine tasting. I love Copain Wines, which has a gorgeous view and interesting nontraditional wine varieties, and J Vineyards & Winery does great wine and food pairings. 4 p.m. Head to the Farmhouse Inn for a spa treatment. The spa is located in the inn’s former carriage house and incorporates ingredients from the surrounding land, such as Spring Forest honey, heirloom cider apples and fresh herbs, into their services. 7 p.m. Leave your dinner plans in the hands of Michelin-starred chef Steve Litke. His menu is inspired by the diversity of California cuisine, featuring Mexican and Italian influences.

If there is anything to take away from an exploration into Baldwin Hardware’s products, it is the following: Quality reigns supreme—always has and always will; continuity of design accents (i.e., hardware) is important; and hardware should be a direct reflection of the homeowner’s aesthetic and lifestyle. A legendary name in cabinet and door hardware, accessories and locks, Baldwin is a staple in the industry, with a strong track record in creating enduring products. “From our American roots to other parts of the world, we like to look at what is classic and on trend and make sure our hardware reflects the desires and aesthetics of the homeowner and design community,” says Baldwin brand manager PJ Rosch.

INsIgHT + AdvIcE

from the professIonals Is It Important to have cohesIon of hardware throughout a home? 1

Yes, you want your hardware to be a reflection of your style and that means your style throughout the home must include the same high quality and finishes.

what Is InspIrIng BaldwIn now?

On Trend Synergy: While contemporary is a predominant design style, fusing looks is gaining popularity, such as modern interior designs in retro styles; black and white in geometric patterns; and organic materials in a space with pops of color. Variant hues: All shades of red are in, as are many shades of green. A resurgence of yellow brass is also noteworthy. A new kind of door: Pocket doors are huge on the list, from small spaces in New York to more industrial or rustic spaces. The best of brass: Traditional polished brass works well for the classicists, whereas a more transitional setting might call for a satin brass. A note on brass: Like everything in fashion, the popularity of brass ebbs and flows; however, it is less a trend and more a classic mainstay.

Historic and modern architecture. There is so much out there to love.

what are some tIps for the prospectIve hardware consumer? Think about the hardware early. Many people leave it until the end, but it is an integral part of the design and it should not be an afterthought.

What kitchen and bath trends should We anticipate for 2015? In terms of colors, gray will continue its reign in popularity, but other classic neutrals will join the palette for the year. Clean and contemporary lines will also dominate the kitchen and bath space.

The use of stone and tile in the home dates to antiquity and has survived millennia for a good reason: unwavering functionality. The use and look of these materials has gradually evolved, but did not undergo a noteworthy transformation until the 21st century. Companies like Cosentino, the global parent company of leading market brands for kitchen and bathroom quartz surfaces, have been prime movers in new applications and aesthetics of stone. “Cosentino’s research and development program has long been valued in architecture and design communities because of what its innovative manufacturing processes make possible,” says Lorenzo Marquez, Cosentino’s vice president of marketing. “Through a proprietary technique called Particle Sintering Technology, Cosentino has created an accelerated version of the process rocks and stones undergo over thousands of years in nature. The result: a stable material suited for an array of installations in the kitchen and bath, as well as outdoor kitchens and living spaces.” Versatility, a distinguishing characteristic of Cosentino-derived products, gives way to design cohesion and is the trait that will come to define this era’s stone and tile.

hoW have things changed in your industry in the past five years? Most notable is the demand for largeformat kitchen islands that serve as the home’s central hub, rather than the traditional kitchen table. In the bathroom, stand-alone showers have gained traction in place of the conventional shower and tub enclosures.

advice for someone beginning a project involving stone or tile: When it comes to material selection, durability and ease of care are just as important as how it complements the aesthetic of the space. This is often an installation job best left to professionals.

every Well-designed bathroom should have…

A striking focal point or stunning vignette.

every Well-designed kitchen should have… A central gathering space—be it a kitchen island, peninsula or dining table—that serves multiple functions for the entire family.

As homeowners place greater emphasis on functionality and ease of use to meet their family’s demands, durability for long-term use is key.

The kitchen, once an exclusively utilitarian space, has evolved into an aesthetic, central core of the home. Beyond open floor plans and heightened designs, kitchens are now becoming technologically rich, connecting end users to the infinite possibilities of the web. dacor, a leading designer and manufacturer of kitchen appliances, has been a driving force in the progression of the smart kitchen. The family-owned, california-based company is behind such kitchen innovations as the discovery iQ dual-Fuel Range, offering users cooking tutorials, recipes and text message notifications when food is ready; the discovery iQ Wall oven, featuring a built-in Android™ tablet and Bluetooth® technology and voice command; and the discovery Winestation, a four-bottle dispenser that preserves wine up to 60 days. dacor’s cEo charles Huebner notes the importance of connectivity in the kitchen but advises against technology for “technology’s sake.” “consumers will soon be bombarded with all things connected and should be aware of what they are buying for their home and why,” he asserts. “With dacor’s appliances, technology simplifies the cooking process and makes the culinary experience accessible to everyone, empowering the individual.”

Even though we are known the world over for our advanced cooking technologies, we still see ourselves as a small shop that builds beautiful, handcrafted appliances.

We are still seeing the same basic kitchen suite as in the past: range, hood, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. As technology moves forward and people gain a greater appreciation for food preparation, they are becoming aware of proper food storage to extend the life of their purchases as well as conscientious waste disposal.

The exclusion of all things extraneous best describes today’s kitchen. A kitchen without boundaries or barriers, a kitchen free from conventional thought and restrictions, a kitchen created to reflect the individual.

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

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

The trend of people spending more money on bathroom and kitchen remodeling— top requirements of new home buyers—continues to increase because these two rooms have become more important for boosting resale values.

Like jewelry, hardware is a powerful accent that can elevate, contemporize or even transform aesthetic quality. Equally remarkable is the utility of kitchen and bathroom fixtures and decorative hardware—an element of residential design that was once left to the discretion of professionals. Today, plumbing fixtures, accessories and hardware selection are as much a priority of the homeowner as cabinetry, a by-product of the increase in kitchen and bathroom remodels and the ubiquity of design ideas and information. In general, people are spending more on fixtures and hardware and placing greater value on the quality, craftsmanship and technological capabilities of these new products. california hardware manufacturer newport Brass, a premium brand of solid brass faucets and fixtures, is a noteworthy name in the industry and has adorned many of today’s residences with its contemporary, elegant and cutting-edge products. “We are dedicated to being at the forefront of the industry by incorporating technology, innovation and craftsmanship—all with a focus on creating products that bring value to our clients’ lifestyles, wellness and comforts,” shares david Emmons, director of marketing for Newport Brass. “We were one of the first manufacturers to implement Pvd (physical vapor deposition) finishing technology, a highly specialized process mastered by few manufacturers in the industry. Newport Brass now offers 29 finish options and multiple styles that can fit in any luxury bathroom or kitchen décor.”

dEsIgN dIALogUE WITH newport Brass what Is your advIce to someone BegInnIng a project InvolvIng hardware?

what constItutes a welldesIgned kItchen and Bath?

consider two main factors when making a decision: 1. Is the style of the faucets or fixtures going to complement the room and offer a complete line of matching components? 2. Are the fixtures and components going to provide the functionality and performance the client is requiring, offering a personalized bathroom or kitchen design?

Quality and durability should never be overlooked, and layout and product selection with proper placement should serve a purpose. A well-designed space feels natural, looks in place and offers uncompromising enjoyment.

Poggenpohl began life in 1892 in a small german showroom. From the beginning, the ambition was to improve the kitchen. good fortune came to founder Friedemir Poggenpohl in finding craftspeople and designers to execute and expound upon his sleek, utilitarian aesthetic. Today, Poggenpohl is an industry innovator, from sustainable building methodology to fresh concepts in materials and finishes to ergonomic cabinetry. What Poggenpohl created more than a century ago is the kitchen of today: devoid of the superfluous, aesthetically modern and unabashedly centered on functionality. To further educate about the very latest in kitchen design, Poggenpohl luminaries I-ching Ueng, san Francisco showroom manager and designer, and Luiza Bajkowska, New York city Poggenpohl designer, shared a few of the most alluring new looks in the kitchen. “White gloss finishes seem to be dominating; clients want clean lines and the least amount of busyness—the opposite of the outside world, where they are being overloaded with information and clutter,” Bajkowska says. In addition to high-gloss and matte finishes, as well as handless design (a technology that speaks to the clean-lined Poggenpohl aesthetic), Ueng notes a general paradigm shift in the kitchen. “More and more people in the United states are following what has been true in Europe for many years, which is that kitchens are viewed as products, not just building materials,” she says. Ueng makes an interesting point, which might be taken a touch further: kitchens are viewed as art, not just products.

Durability is a must—melamine took over the lacquers.

The big picture: Modern style with clean design Sources of inspiration: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, sustainability, advancing technology Well-designed kitchen: Intuitive workflow, no confusion Well-designed cabinetry: Functional! On the radar: Retro design woven into pure and modern spaces Continuity vs. eclecticism: cohesion. Either monochromatic or a thoughtful combination of colors and materials that integrate with the rest of the décor of the house Uniquely Poggenpohl: german precision and innovation with flexibility that aspires to individual needs 2

Every well-designed kitchen should have a good working axis between the stove, refrigerator and sink— and beautiful stone or tile. WHAT’s trendIng

decoration: consumers are looking for creative patterns and colorways for floors and walls. Moroccan and Southern Italian motifs offer amazing geometric and figurative patterns that can be used in many ways, even in modern interiors. Organic shapes in stone are trending, as are gray and blue in both ceramic and stone. Porcelain tile technology that mimics other materials, like wood, stone or concrete, is a major trend being embraced for residential and commercial work.

The temperature just spiked courtesy summer’s latest interior accents and fashion accessories that appear to be heavily influenced by four distinct cities. Here, the Southwestern feel of Santa Fe creates an instant heat wave by way of Ralph Lauren’s printed throw alongside Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams’ reinvigorated Kazan chair. In a city known for its great respect of art and culture, Santa Fe continues to inspire; case in point is the renowned Santa Fe Indian Market (detail shown below) that draws an array of folk artists and enthusiasts from around the globe. Even one of fashion’s elite, Veronica Etro, turned to the desert for her latest RTW line, as traditional Navaho prints, daring fringed heels and bohemian embellishments strutted down the runway. These free-spirited pieces are no mirage, but rather the perfect tangibles for imbuing a little adobe-chic into any home.

The Côte d’Azur has lured individuals of the art and design worlds for centuries, and it would appear that its most recent persuasions over fashion and interiors have us once again longing for a deep breath of that fresh coastline air. Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg looked to the French Riviera for inspiration when creating her painterly Spring/Summer 2015 RTW collection, giving nods to Matisse and Picasso, frequenters of this seaside escape, through fun floral patterns displayed on wispy silks, while San Francisco interior designer Antonio Martins evoked a touch of coastal style when fashioning this impressive haphazard-tiled wall, exuding ancient references brought into modern day with a striking sideboard reminiscent of a coral reef. At this rate, we’re ready to grab our passports and say bonjour to laidback living at its best.

Always the trailblazer—whether it be in fashion, food or design—Milan has long been setting the tone for the rest of the world. And, when it comes to style and décor, it’s not just about the art of the mix, but more importantly, the element of surprise. Here, designer Barry Dixon’s seemingly turn-of-the-century Synapse pendant complements both the sleek, modern lines of B&B Italia’s Metropolitan ottoman and the delicate form of Nina Tolstrup's Tall chair. Milan is by nature an effortlessly sartorial city, yet it’s not a reputation easily received without great thought and consideration. British fashion duo Peter Pilotto exercises the city’s fearlessness in their latest runway collection, where silhouette and pattern are brazenly exhibited through unorthodox materials like Perspex.

COPENHAGEN

STRAIGHT FORWARD

Many mistake the fact that simplistic design requires less effort, but quite to the contrary; it’s the simple silhouettes and uncomplicated structures that change the way design is perceived and experienced. It is this philosophy that dominates the persona of our next influential city: Copenhagen. Blonde wood, open shapes and brushed-gold finishes are constant qualities synonymous with Denmark’s capital. Barber & Osgerby illustrate the art of this finesse in the Hula stool, which by appearances is seemingly straightforward, but upon further investigation, offers itself as either fixed seating or a rocking stool. But perhaps the father of modern Danish design, Finn Juhl, whose colorful sideboard is shown, sums up quintessential Copenhagen style best of all with his clean-lined furnishings. “One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects,” he says, “but one can spoil quite a lot of happiness with bad ones.”

Feel: The Air sofa is a modern shape that will feel more classic as time passes. It seems like a piece that would inspire our personal aesthetic to grow and change. Color: The strength of the color is that it’s a bold shade that acts as a neutral. The mossy green recalls nature and feels fresh. Statement: This silhouette demands attention and would inform the design of the rest of the room. It sets a tone of sophistication and class—you can’t go wrong with those brass legs! Sense: This piece would smell of old maps, leather and cigars, yet with a hint of perfume.

Collaboration: Partnerships like this bring together old and new creative talents, often resulting in beautiful and unexpected design. Collection: The pieces feel like a blend of both antiquity and modern taste. Each pattern is rich and intricate, but together they remain cohesive. Palette: Gray is the new white. The soft palette whispers of the beauty found in the handmade and nuanced details that feel very aligned with Fortuny’s heritage.

Designer: I am taken with how playful and fearless Christopher’s work is; he’s an artist with a sense of humor. His collection, for me, recalls the Space Age. Contrast: The contrast of black and white is striking. These tables are modern art sculptures and conversation starters. Color can complicate the design process and take away from the bold minimalism of a silhouette. These tables, especially the painted piece, still feel simple though the pattern is random and wild.

I believe the importance of the maker movement is in keeping the tradition of skilled labor alive; it is design and skill passed down from one generation to the next. final thought: “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’’—William Morris

happy hues and bold palettes turn the home’s hardest-working spaces into functional showpieces that think outside the box. written by brielle m. ferreira it’s easy to see why white kitchens and bathrooms are so popular in the modern home—like a signature dish perfected over many potlucks and dinner parties, they are ideal for the chef who wants to play it safe. they’re elegant and classic and show no signs of going out of style. for those seeking a little more adventure in their interiors, though, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the allure of color, of bold, lookat-me spaces that demand the spotlight. thankfully, today’s bold kitchens and baths banish all memories of the avocado refrigerators and pale pink tiles of yesteryear; instead, their vibrant palettes borrow their power from high fashion and graphic style for spaces that are decidedly à la mode.

interior designer andrew howard cooks up a dreamy kitchen scene in varying shades of blue for this familyfriendly florida kitchen. andrewjhoward.com How did you decide on the serene blue palette? it was a happy accident. we were looking for countertops, and we weren’t quite sure what we wanted to do, but when we found this interesting blue marble, everything clicked. the whole kitchen was then born from there.

favorite thing about a colorful kitchen? it has a special “wow” factor you don’t get from a more traditional space. the kitchen is where your friends and family spend about 90 percent of their time when they’re with you; it’s fun to give them something they’ve never seen.

What would you say to those afraid of using color in a kitchen? don’t be! even if you’re a little hesitant to paint all of your cabinets a certain shade, you can bring in color in small ways for a big impact. a hint of hue on your backsplash or barstools can go a long way.

SO REFRESHING The dreamy mixology depicted in powerhouse recipe developer María del Mar Sacasa and photographer Tara Striano’s beautifully bound volume, Summer Cocktails, proves that there’s more than one way to bring color to the kitchen, like through pretty garnishes and powerful potions crafted to keep the party going. quirkbooks.com

LEAFY GREENS Legendary Palm Beach ceramicist Dodie Thayer’s signature lettuce ware has been highly coveted by a rather formidable crowd—think Brooke Astor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis—since she threw the first plate back in the 1960s. However, with the supply of the iconic green (Duncan Irish Green to be exact) tableware in serious decline, it was only a matter of time before these vintage beauties went extinct; that is before Tory Burch stepped in, with the fashion heavy hitter recently teaming up with Thayer to put the preppy staples back into production and back on kitchen shelves for good. toryburch.com

MAKE A SPLASH

Glass mosaic tiles from Ann Sacks in navy, turquoise, gray and white are laid together in thick chevron stripes that transform the backsplash of this crisp kitchen into a work of art. The space, by San Francisco-based designer Ali Davin, relies on this colorful statement piece to bring life to an otherwise simple, Shaker-style kitchen. “When you have a bold graphic moment like the backsplash, you can’t give it a lot of other competition,” says Davin. “It’s important to keep the built-in lines clean and ornamentation and hardware to a minimum.” jutehome.com

COOL RUNNINGS The newest colorway from vintage-inspired appliance company Smeg—a sunny modern yellow meant to become the focal point of the kitchen—embraces the cool retro style of the brand’s signature refrigerators and ovens with a bit of extra flair not meant for the faint of heart. smegusa.com 178 / LUXE INTERIORS + DESIGN

Heavy metal get cooking with copper There’s something delicate yet steadfast about the blushing metallic tones of copper and rose gold, which brings some much-needed warmth and serious feminine flair to the kitchen. It is the next generation’s answer to stainless steel and it’s catching on fast, with companies like Frigidaire introducing new lines of appliances in this lustrous hue and brands like Dornbracht offering the finish as a new option on most of its classic faucet silhouettes.

Walk me through your thought process for this space. It was all about maintaining a low profile with the landscape while at the same time doing something fantastic in its own right with the pool. I like the balance of deferring to the view in some ways, but also trying to ‘one-up’ it at the same time. The entire house looks out to this area, so we went with a very architectural approach with the landscape. The idea was for the space to become a permanent and unchanging part of the view.

WrITTen By HannaH toles

How did the design unfold once you decided on that approach? The feel of the space was purposefully designed to be very controlled—a contrast to the natural setting in the background. The starting point was the view and from there the idea developed that we jut the pool out as far as we comfortably could so that when you are out at the deep end, you are literally out in the treetops. There was no backyard to this property so we made the back area as large as we could.

Is a dark pool a typical request? Dark-bottom pools do seem to be making a bit of a comeback. In this case, we wanted the water and the pool to be a contrasting element, very strong in its aesthetic and presence. With the lighter hues of the house and patio, and with the sky in the background, I opted for a darker color for the pool to achieve this. I think the most dramatic aspect of this pool, however, is the experience of being out at the far edge, in your lounge chair, perched on the edge of this 20-foot drop.

What was your jumping-off point? The adjacent room in this condo is painted in a neutral palette with colorful accents, so it made sense to continue the same palette into the dining room. We started with the amazing Saarinen table and Platner chairs, and decided to incorporate color through the other elements in the space since the predominant furnishings were white. Were there any happy accidents here? The previous owner actually left the vintage credenza behind. My clients thought they might want a different piece in the space but it ended up working perfectly here. I like the vintage quality and casualness that it brings to the space. Also, while it wasn’t a large part of my design, I love how the concrete column reveals how the building was constructed. It might be a tendency for some to try to mask the concrete, but it lends an urban touch to the sophisticated space. What’s your philosophy on using dining rooms? Spaces in a home should be comfortable enough to use on a daily basis. The key is to incorporate plenty of comfortable chairs and great lighting. You should celebrate your beautiful rooms and special things routinely. For instance, why only use good china for special occasions? Use it instead for breakfast on a Tuesday!

How much did the location play into the design? This place had everything to do with how and where it was located. We built the home in an L-shape, so that no matter if you’re indoors or out, you still get a sense of the environment. This particular pool area opens up to a meadow and receives direct sunlight, perfect for the climbing roses on the pergola and sweet, pink rosebushes that border the perimeter of the pool. I love that the home integrates itself with the landscape.

Was the style of the home inspired by anything in particular? We crafted a traditional building that fits seamlessly into the region. While Southern Colonial Revival architecture inspired the design, we took our first cues from the clients, who led us to design a house based on their programming—which included plenty of space for family and friends. The Germans and Czechs who settled in this part of Texas built homes similar in this style, so we also interpreted that historical aspect into the home.

Tell me more about the design details of this space. We chose white for the color of the house because here in Texas, you have homes dominated by sizable, old trees and the big, bright sky. Nothing pairs better than white and it’s also great at reflecting the heat. We used cedar shingles on the pitched areas of the roof and copper on the flatter areas because it sheds water better. Adjacent to the kitchen, the porch is a real room, at 16 feet deep, that’s perfect for entertaining.

nothing says summer like a sweet cocoon made to play host to the perfect midday nap. designed by daniel pouzet and fred frety, dedon’s nestrest is a cozy hideout, borrowing inspiration for its elegant, simple lines from the construction of birds’ nests in nature. dedon.de

for new York-based landscape architect edmund hollander, two things are more important than all else when designing a successful outdoor living space: comfort and fun. so, he often turns to pergolas to yield a pretty spot that pushes people outside. “pergolas are wonderful because they’re so versatile,” he says. “they provide shade for those who want cover but allow light in through their slats for sun worshippers. depending on where you sit, you can have a completely different experience. plus, draping them in wisteria, climbing roses or bougainvillea can create a wonderful sense of place.” hollanderdesign.com

While his gardens grace the properties of some of the most beautiful homes in the chicago area, landscape architect p. clifford miller tries not to get too carried away by their breathtaking structure and symmetry; instead, he focuses on practicing sensitivity to the needs of the site. here, miller shares his thoughts on creating statement-making gardens. What are some of your favorite plants and blooms to work with in your designs? i love crabapples, as they are quintessentially midwest and a wonderful way to shake off the cold. fothergilla “Blue shadow” is another personal favorite, as its glaucous blue leaves can brighten a semi-shady spot all summer long. Share some exciting trends in landscape architecture and outdoor living. right now, we’re seeing a lot of outdoor kitchens, fire pits and water features. none are new, necessarily, but the demand keeps rising. also, low-maintenance plantings, indigenous flora and organic gardening are huge now. best way to integrate water features and pools into verdant surroundings? in a formal garden, lining up the water feature on a critical axial line or controlling a hierarchy of sights and sounds with its location may prove optimal. using strong geometry in the design of the feature will help, as well. landscapeartistry.net

miranda Jones, one half of the brother/sister duo behind san francisco’s galanter & Jones, shares the inspiration and motivation behind the young company’s much-coveted, genius line of heated outdoor furniture. Where did the idea to create your all-weather pieces come from? my brother and business partner, aaron Jones, dreamed it up when he was doing a design/build project in a chilly backyard. our pieces give you the toasty feeling of being in a hot tub but without having to get wet.

How do you create your shapely silhouettes? We use the human form as our inspiration, with comfort being key. When your body anticipates that something will be comfortable, the piece becomes naturally inviting.

What are some of your favorite materials to work with? We’re very intrigued by the cast-able medium. it is amazing and versatile and allows us to explore more ergonomic and interesting forms.

form or function? function always comes first, but good function should also dictate good form. Beauty and simplicity are equal attributes of both. galanterandjones.com

Container gardens continue to increase in popularity, as water becomes more of a valuable commodity, especially in droughtprone areas like Southern California. Just because they’re practical, however, doesn’t also mean they can’t be fun. Los Angelesbased designer Kathleen Ferguson suggests using pots in unexpected shapes, colors and textures to add interest to your outdoor space. “Succulents and cacti are my favorite plantings for container gardens,” she says, “but I love fitting them with herbs and other edibles, too. They allow you to truly enjoy your garden year-round.” kathleenferguson.com

A well-done hardscape can unify all the elements in a garden, which makes it an integral part of the outdoor experience; however, it can be hard to foster a dreamy, romantic aesthetic from large expanses of paver or limestone.

What led you to your current profession? We wanted to create a gallery where visitors felt transported, as if they had entered a sanctuary. We designed an environment as artful as the work it houses.

Guillermo Cardenas, Curator Carlos Enrique Rodriguez, Director 1113 Dragon Street Dallas, Texas 972.998.4803 info@muzeion.com muzeiongallery.com

MUZEION GALLERY Ancient Egyptian sarcophagi, vivid pre-Columbian textiles and Indian maharajas’ jewels are just a few of the rare and ancient wonders to be found at Muzeion Gallery. Led by curator Guillermo Cardenas and gallery director Carlos Enrique Rodriguez, the Dallas-based gallery boasts pieces originating from locations all over the world and time periods ranging from 2,000 B.C. to the present. Constantly traveling in their quest to build the finest collection of global art, Cardenas and Rodriguez bring artworks from revered eras and cultures, and an assortment of mediums, to the walls of Muzeion Gallery. Authenticity, a key to the value of each work, is confirmed through Muzeion’s intricate verification process. “We pride ourselves on offering one-of-a-kind art that has never been copied or duplicated,” Rodriguez says. “Each masterpiece’s authenticity is guaranteed with extensive provenance research or a thermoluminescence test, assuring that patrons take home museum-quality works that are unique and genuine.” The gallery’s latest collection highlights wearable art in the form of amulets. Historically thought to bring good fortune to the wearer, the pieces of artisanal jewelry are viewed as centers of power and energy. Taking antiquities off the shelves and placing them in a modern context, the Amuletos collection exhibits pieces—some dating back 3,500 years—for the modern enthusiast with a taste for elegance and ancient luxury. Muzeion, derivatively meaning “temple of the muses,” was given its name to convey the philosophy on which it was founded. “Our primary purpose is to promote a love and passion for art, history and culture that will be preserved for future generations,” Cardenas says. “When you take home a piece from Muzeion, you are housing art that belongs to humanity, an item with intrinsic value that transcends time.”

Wes Marmaduke Owner 5952 Royal Lane, Suite 223 Dallas, Texas 972.533.6866 info@princetonconstructiontx.com princetondallas.com

PRINCETON CONSTRUCTION Since its inception just four years ago, Princeton Construction has become well known for bringing custom-designed proposals to life. Owner Wes Marmaduke founded the Dallas-based firm after spending nearly a decade in the business, during which he mastered an understanding of the most important thing a custom home builder can possess: a happy client. “It’s all based on customer service,” Marmaduke says. “Working with our clients is what inspires us. They motivate us to put out the best possible product, and in doing so, we can take pride in our work.” Frequenting the high-end residential market and accepting just two to three clients per year, Marmaduke and his team spend an abundance of time with each homeowner and architect in their exclusive client base. The firm has completed stunning residences throughout the Dallas area, from University Park to Highland Park, and is experienced in an array of design styles. While transitional is his personal favorite, Marmaduke enjoys the challenges that each style offers, whether ultramodern or traditional. “The style really depends on the architect and the homeowner,” he says. “We create homes that accurately reflect the intention in the architect’s design and achieve every aspect of the homeowner’s wants and needs. We don’t do speculative homes.” The Princeton Construction team works alongside clients from beginning to end, maintaining a positive, hands-on environment that invites commentary and collaboration. Using efficient materials that promote function, the firm provides an unparalleled product and level of service. No client walks away from a Princeton-built home without the utmost satisfaction.

ARIA STONE GALLERY Worldly, educated and refined are a few of the qualities by which Vinny Tavares, founder of Aria Stone Gallery, describes his clientele. That the individuals browsing Aria possess these characteristics is no surprise given the quality of stone found in the gallery. Tavares, a passionate enthusiast of rare stone, maintains an unwavering commitment to quality and attention to the details of a slab. “In terms of materials, quality is found in color, content and clarity,” he asserts. “In terms of fabrication, seamless-edge trims and book-matched veins across surfaces denote quality.” The Dallas-based luxury boutique displays a curated collection of exotic natural stone from the most exclusive quarries in the world. “Each stone is a unique piece of artwork,” he says. “We display slabs in a gallery-like environment to best showcase the full beauty of each one.” Tavares travels frequently, from Brazil to Africa to the Middle East, in search of the most sought-after stones in existence. “Only a small percentage of the blocks mined in quarries yield what are considered first-quality slabs,” he explains. “As a result, most stone imported into the U.S. is not first-quality material, meaning that a slab may be fine structurally but not as rich in color or as well-balanced in its veining and movement as in premium slabs. We are one of only a handful of U.S. importers who bring in first-quality slabs, no exceptions.” Unique to the stone industry, Aria Stone Gallery is a retail establishment that sells to the trade and directly to the public; its business model is underscored by transparency, education and information. “Aria seeks to provoke the imagination, challenge the status quo and expand the current, limited perception about the uses for natural stone,” Tavares says.

TOP: White Beauty granite was used to create a custom, floating vessel sink and a wall behind the freestanding tub in this modern bathroom retreat designed by Joanie Wyll. BOTTOM: Designer Tiffany McKinzie used a book match of Grigio Italia marble as a focal point in this modern bathroom.

What steps can clients take to make their experiences more personally rewarding? We’ve just launched a new website with an appointmentbooking feature. We very much enjoy spending one-on-one time with clients to best serve them and highly recommend using this new online tool. How do you define luxury? Luxury in the stone industry is natural, rare material that is hand-selected for top markers, such as content of pattern, clarity and color intensity. It’s much like buying a diamond. What are you working on next? Opening Aria’s next location in Houston.

Aria Stone Gallery was started with the intention of allowing people to shop for stone the way they would for art. Clients can see every detail that the earth has created in these rocks.

The constant pursuit of the perfect slab is what defines Aria.

Designer Joanie Wyll created this contemporary kitchen with one feature in mind: the river jade island. The dark cabinets play as contrasts to the dancing colors in the Brazilian quartzite.

Left: A bar cart from Mecox complements the chrome and mirrored accents in the living and dining rooms of this Galveston home. The oak flooring was bleached twice, and then a white stain was applied on top—an effect that reflects light throughout the house. Opposite: The owners requested shiplap paneling throughout the rooms to emphasize the waterfront location. In the dining room, designer Laura C. Singleton placed a custom chandelier over a table from Mecox and white leather chairs with stainless-steel frames from High Fashion Home.

t’s telling that designer Laura C. Singleton had never been to her best friend’s weekend house in Galveston during the 13 years she and her husband owned beach properties. “We never entertained at the beach house because it wasn’t really decorated to our family’s tastes,” explains the homeowner. “It never really felt like home to us.” That changed when the Houston couple decided to buy a new retreat on Galveston’s quieter bay side. This time, however, the wife was in charge of the décor, and she asked Singleton to mastermind the interior design during a total overhaul of the 1980s-era house, which was reorganized to accommodate a new ground-level outdoor kitchen, lounge and pool; an open main level

for cooking and entertaining; plenty of beds and bunks for the daughter’s friends (and guest quarters for their parents); and a private master suite away from the fray. “I’d never done a beach house,” says the designer. Perhaps that’s why she was able to avoid the expected coastal vernacular. “I wanted the design to be hip,” she adds. “It’s Malibu meets Galveston.” Singleton joined a team that included builder Jimmy Clore and architect David Mullican. Together with architectural designer Michael Andrew Meller, who had worked on the couple’s primary residence, they transformed the existing house into a gracious, well-appointed vacation home. “It was unique for us to turn an older house into the look of what we are building today,” Clore says.


The wife, who runs a marketing firm whose clients include real estate developers, had a few ideas of her own. “I’m exposed to really great interior design and architecture all the time,” she says. “So I pretty much knew what I wanted.” To that end, she prepared an extensive look book of every architectural detail and interior design style she was after and distributed it to the team. “I’ve never had a client bring so much information to the table—it was very organized,” Mullican says. And during the construction, the husband was also instrumental with his own ideas—and elbow grease, helping with everything from the framing to purchasing and installing windows. “He was very involved, a kind of self-appointed builder-contractor,” Meller says, adding that the husband was especially helpful with the kitchen and master suite. The resulting open-plan design makes the most of the water views, Mullican says, including a new tower addition off the rear corner where three of the four sides face Galveston’s main canal. “Giving people every opportunity to see the view from inside was a primary goal,” Mullican explains. As for the inspiration behind the interior design, Singleton says, “The owners are a vibrant couple with a young daughter, and she’s got a ton of friends. I knew they would be there every weekend, so the million-dollar question was: How do you make it glam and super-chic while withstanding sandy bathing suits?” Her solution: Bathe everything in white, with durable, easy-to-clean fabrics and flooring. She then turned to chrome accents and mirrored surfaces throughout the main living areas. The white upholstery, wall paneling and bleachedoak floors, she says, visually expand the space. “As for the mirrored surfaces,” she says, “they reflect light, which is so important, especially in a house on the water. And the mirror adds a touch of glamour that the client wanted.” The living room’s crowning piece is a massive 10-by-10-foot Plexiglas-mounted photograph of wild horses on Canada’s Sable Island, which the owners purchased from wildlife photographer Debra Garside. “We really wanted to have a killer image of a horse,” says the wife, noting that her daughter is an avid equestrienne.


The wife wanted the new kitchen to be a soaring space that’s open to the living and dining rooms. Barstools from CB2 pull up to Calacatta Gold marble countertops from Cantu Tile & Stone. Pendants from Restoration Hardware illuminate the scene, which includes millwork and cabinetry fabricated by Cheyenne Custom Cabinetry.

Cheyenne Custom Cabinetry fashioned the millwork. Marble tile flooring continues the home’s white theme; the countertops and tub surround are Calacatta Gold marble from Cantu Tile & Stone. Opposite: Singleton chose a lively Donghia pattern for the master bedroom’s custom headboard and pillows. The sofa from Restoration Hardware rests on a Chinese sea-grass carpet and a cowhide rug. Artwork by Hunt Slonem was purchased at Elizabeth Moore Galtney Art Advisors; the chandelier is from Memorial Antiques & Interiors.

Art enlivens other spaces in the house, as well. “We picked one piece of artwork for each room and were really selective,” says the wife. Three of artist Hunt Slonem’s signature bunny paintings hang over the bed in the master suite, while the guest room features a vivid aerial view of a Saint-Tropez beach by photographer Gray Malin. Singleton also incorporated her friend’s many finds throughout the house. “I’m a major ‘junker’ and always have been,” the wife says, ticking off markets in Paris, Manhattan, and closer to home, the Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top as her favorite haunts. One of her best scores, a

white peacock she found at Marburger, holds pride of place on a perch overlooking the living room. Downstairs, a pair of vintage chairs shaped like giant hands adds personality to the new Restoration Hardware furnishings near the pool. Built with an indoor-outdoor feel, the new house has now become the go-to party spot for their neighbors, both in Galveston and Houston. “The house is just the right size to push you outdoors while still feeling comfortable,” says the wife. “We entertain all the time but it’s fun and informal. We’re able to sit by the water, eat dinner and visit with friends. It’s such a wonderful place where we can truly relax.”

Textile designer Mili Suleman’s colorful assortment of fabrics, shown opposite, can be purchased directly through her brand, Kufri Life. This charming vignette in Suleman’s Richardson studio includes Tribal, a handwoven, ikat-dyed textile in black and natural.


I “My work is a culture clash; a happy, eclectic Mix of everything that i love.”

t’s been said that there’s an invisible thread that connects us all. For textile designer Mili Suleman, it’s her collection of handwoven and hand-printed fabrics that intertwine her Indian heritage and a deep connection to a family living an ocean apart. Residing in Dallas for 17 years, Mumbai-born Suleman has crafted a vision that not only bridges the eight-thousand-mile divide to her mother in Oman—who travels with the miltifaceted designer on explorative trips and assists her with negotiations—but strengthens the link to her Indian roots with her handmade designs. “On a trip to India, I saw these amazing heritage processes like weaving, block printing and ikat dyeing, and I fell in love,” Suleman says. “My mother’s passion is quilting, so I knew she would enjoy exploring these textile processes as much as I do.” Two years in the making, Kufri Life, named after a picturesque summer getaway in the Himalayan mountain range, captures a kaleidoscope of cultures and colors. All of the weaving and dyeing is done in India, yet Suleman creates many of the patterns here in the U.S.— conceiving fresh riffs on timeless designs. “My work is a culture clash—a happy, eclectic mix of everything that I love,” Suleman says. “I design fabrics that are globally inspired and a blend of traditional textile techniques with simple patterns that fit into everyday living.” Think rich palettes, woven textures and uncomplicated motifs that capture the history and energy of Suleman’s international aesthetic into exuberant custom pillows, table linens, fabrics for home and apparel, and private label collections.

Well-versed in resplendent Indian fabrics, Suleman’s also comfortable dipping in and out of other aesthetics, like her prints that conjure a journey through Asia, Indonesia and Africa. “Currently, I’m obsessed with everything African,” she says. “The designs have a graphic element to them with earthy colors and raw textures.” The brand also embodies Suleman’s casual spirit. “It’s an easy-living aesthetic that takes me back to summers on the Indian coast,” she says. Today, a cozy studio in Richardson serves as Suleman’s design home base. With Moroccan rugs underfoot, stacks of vintage magazines topping tables and one-of-a-kind furnishings, she settles in behind her computer. A graphic designer by profession, it was a natural progression for Suleman to transition into another creative outlet. “It’s exciting that I’m finally creating my own sense of design from things that have influenced me throughout my life,” she says. “It’s also great to know that, through Kufri Life, I’m doing my part to preserve these incredible heritage techniques and support the people of India.”

warm wood elements and large windows that capture natural vistas allow a redesigned house in austin to take full advantage of its picturesque setting. written by tate gunnerson / photography by paul finkel luxe interiors + design / 229


Architects Ryan Burke and Eric Barth conceived a modern trellis fabricated by Steel House MFG, designed to not interfere with an existing tree in front of this Austin home’s entrance. The front door is by Buffelen and windows are by Marvin Windows and Doors, both purchased through BMC.


E

very space in this house has its own fingerprint and a unique relationship to the outside,” architect Eric Barth says about the Austin home that he and architect Ryan Burke designed for a family with young children. The duo created a brand-new linear home, perched on a gently sloping hill, with a midcentury vibe using much of the brick and other materials from the original 1960s-era house that once stood on the site. “It’s an extreme idea to disassemble a house and reuse the parts,” Barth says. “But it’s more sustainable and there’s something about that continuum that we really like.” According to the architects, builder Branson Fustes was instrumental in the success of the labor-intensive project. “Branson was committed to the idea of doing something sensible, even if it was counter to the way most houses are built today,” Ryan Burke explains. The home’s transformation still astonishes Fustes, who weaved together the original and new brick so that they are indistinguishable. “The result is a cohesive palette and texture,” Fustes says. “It was originally a very dark house with a big imposing roofline, and now it’s all open spaces with an abundance of natural light.” Indeed, light floods into the house from long rectangular clerestory windows, strategically placed skylights and floor-to-ceiling expanses of glass that look out onto a series of courtyards, each designed with its own function. “The courtyards are connected like a string of pearls on a necklace that weaves throughout the house,” Barth explains. “You get this expanse of glass and daylight, but you’re never looking at the street or a neighbor, so it’s private even with the shades open.” The largest, partially covered courtyard, complete with gray Lueders limestone pavers, connects the main home to a casita that the husband uses as his office. Here, landscape architect Sara Partridge continued the limestone in the front of the home, where it was laid as rectangular pavers with grass growing between them to facilitate water drainage. The casual aesthetic continues in a smaller

courtyard—visible from several interior rooms—where Partridge planted native grasses around a coral bark Japanese maple tree that will change color throughout the seasons. “The team wanted something natural that would kind of creep into the interiors,” Partridge explains. Creating a strong connection between inside and out was so important to the architects that they adjusted their design to accommodate the mature oak trees that grew on the site, actually varying the ceiling heights to make room for the old-growth branches. “The lower ceilings allow the house to stay underneath the branches, and we popped up ceiling heights where we could,” Ryan Burke explains. “It’s a pretty magical moment when you’re in the living room and you can see tree branches in every direction.” In areas with higher ceilings, the long rectangular clerestory windows frame the treetops and offer another source of natural light, while those strategically placed skylights bring brightness into the deeper interior spaces. In the master bathroom, for example, the architects carved out a portion of the ceiling over the tub. “By controlling the ceiling planes, we were able to create these little moments of exception,” Barth explains. There’s another such moment in the kitchen, where a wood trellis prevents the space’s high ceilings from feeling too cavernous and provided a place to affix task lighting. “We went to great lengths to make this kitchen feel nestled into the space,” Barth says. “There’s a language of planes, beams and columns, which are being supported by brick masses.” Working closely with interior designer Allison Burke and the homeowners, the team selected the materials palette for the entire home. Rift-sawn white oak, which has been used for built-in bookcases in the living room and cabinetry in the kitchen, complements the cypress ceiling and walnut flooring that run throughout the house. “I wanted the white oak and cypress to flow together so that the interesting grain of the walnut floors would stand out,” Allison Burke explains. In the kitchen, white quartzite countertops and a back-painted glass backsplash echo the paint used to unify the new and reused brick throughout. By contrast, the designer brought in patterned rugs with green, blue and yellow hues for the living areas. “A lot of the color palette was driven by the tones found just outside,” she explains. The carpets also add interest to the otherwise clean and contemporary furnishings. In the entry, for example, a small rug with a blue tribal pattern coexists peacefully with a modernist console, while in the dining room, a rug is paired with a live-edge table and a whimsical glass-and-leather chandelier. “The husband is a modernist and the wife is more traditional,” Allison Burke says. “So we tried to bridge the gap between the two.” According to the architects, the project’s success can be attributed to the strong relationship between the owners and design team. “This house is a simple poetic gesture that has a lot of depth,” Ryan Burke explains. “There’s no line between the interior design and architecture, and that’s the hallmark of a great collaboration. At the end of the day, this project was a smashing success.”

Opposite: In the dining room, the ceiling pulls short of the wall, allowing natural daylight to filter into the space from clerestory windows. Displayed above a teak-slatted console from Bevara in San Rafael, California, is a pair of oil paintings by Stella Alesi. Millwork throughout the house is by TRC Carpentry Services. Below: Creating an island of pattern and color in the dining room is another Kalaty carpet from Oriental Rug Gallery of Texas. Bontempi leather chairs from Nest Modern encircle a table featuring a salvaged-steel base and a pecan top fabricated by Hewn. A Pelle chandelier from Lightology in Chicago crowns the space.


Above: A courtyard with gray Lueders limestone pavers connects the main home and a detached casita, which has many uses, including the husband’s office and a family room. The area also provides a place for the children to play and ride their bikes. Left: Armchairs and a plush sofa, all from Nest Modern, create a private place for conversation in the detached casita that is used as a family room. An existing table rests on a David Hicks wool rug. Outdoor fans cool the exterior courtyard, which can be used as an open entertainment space or a screened-in patio.


Creating the back of the house is a brick retaining wall and gray Lueders limestone terraces steps. Landscape architect Sara Partridge used native stone and plants so that the scenery wouldn’t compete with the architecture.


For a small courtyard visible from many of the home’s interior spaces, Partridge planted native grasses around a coral bark Japanese maple tree that will change color throughout the seasons. The area was inspired by a Japanese garden.


Above: A carpet from Flokati Rugs in Jersey City, New Jersey, is juxtaposed with sleek surfaces, such as limestone flooring from Stone Source and walls clad with tiles from Ann Sacks, in the spa-like master bathroom. A fixture from Arteriors illuminates the scene, which includes a Kohler bathtub purchased from Moore Supply Company. Right: The master bathroom’s tufted bench from Back Home provides a place for respite. A custom mirror hangs over cabinetry made of rift-sawn white oak and featuring hardware from Alexander Marchant. Caesarstone countertops from Architectural Tile & Stone reside with sinks by Kohler and faucets by Hansgrohe, all from Moore Supply Company.

light show Artist jAy shinn tAps the inner recesses of his mind to conjure up his decidedly modern And AbstrAct works of light. written by lauren a. greene / photogrAphy by justin clemons


S

ince he first picked up a brush at the age of seven and turned his bedroom in Magnolia, Arkansas, into a studio, artist Jay Shinn has experimented with practically every medium from charcoal to wood. But it was a high school field trip to Washington, D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden that set his lifelong fascination with light into motion. “For a long time I thought about this work I saw by Luis Tomasello,” says Shinn, who vividly remembers the sculpture’s reflective qualities. That seed of inspiration would soon be cultivated further at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, where resident artist Milton Resnick told Shinn he really needed to think about bringing light into his art. “After that, light and illusion became a huge part of my work going forward,” says Shinn, who splits his time between Dallas and New York. However, never have they played such an integral part then the last six years, as the artist has pushed the boundaries with his geometric light-projection paintings and neon installations. Experiencing his work firsthand can have a mesmerizing effect on the viewer, so it’s not surprising that Shinn taps his unconscious to create them, letting forms and colors develop organically. To begin, Shinn turns to drawing, one of his favorite ways to work, as he sketches out ideas and then allows one decision to lead to the next. The process is not unlike the way he used to draw as a child—uninhibited by constraints—and that lends the final pieces a rather enchanting result. “Light has a certain magic to it that’s all-encompassing,” explains Shinn. “And with projected-light pieces there’s an element of mystery that hopefully takes someone to another place.” Next up for Shinn: a large-scale installation project for Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and shows in Italy, Houston and Paris. “I’m always looking forward to what’s next rather than dwelling on a piece once it’s finished,” says the artist. And Shinn has plenty to focus on.

W

hen a couple relocated to Dallas, they found a spacious house in the tree-lined University Park community—and quickly snapped it up. They appreciated its traditional details and big yard, which had room for a pool; however, the home’s dated feel and heavy décor weren’t quite their taste. Having lived in the South, the couple, who have two adult daughters, were familiar with more formal, draped interiors, but this time they wanted to switch things up. “We envisioned a home that was light and airy with happy colors and plenty of room to ramble,” says the wife. Adds the husband: “We didn’t want ultra-formal rooms but comfortable areas that were bright and easy to live in.” To achieve these goals, the couple turned to designer Tiffany McKinzie. “We hit it off immediately,” says McKinzie of the wife. “She brought a few design books to our first meeting, so I was able to quickly ascertain her style, which is a mirror image to her personality: bright and bubbly. She wanted to incorporate color without overpowering the spaces.”

To begin, the couple chose a neutral background palette of white and gray, yet to satisfy the wife’s craving for color, McKinzie added dashes of various hues throughout. The dining room’s custom head chairs wrapped in a vibrant fuchsia textile embody this notion, as does a custom banquette in the breakfast nook featuring a plum indoor-outdoor fabric. In turn, the family room includes a large ottoman swathed in a teal micro-velvet, while a dark fuchsia carpet from Feizy Rugs lays the groundwork for a bold setting in the den. “The wife didn’t want the house to be too serious; she wanted spaces to be a little unexpected and was fearless with color,” says McKinzie, who oversaw the renovation aspects of this project, including repainting the interior, gutting a portion of the kitchen, replacing decorative fixtures throughout and updating the master bathroom, among other endeavors. The couple was especially eager to revamp the kitchen, which originally had no eating area. “We love sitting around the kitchen table and didn’t want to use the dining room all the time,” says the husband. “So we had a table made

This Dallas home’s brick exterior features wrought iron, which was brought in by the previous owner from New Orleans. Owner Gerick Schraub and landscape designer Susan Newell, of Green Earth Services of Texas, worked with the current owners on the landscape. Newell selected spartan junipers to frame the house.

and a banquette built in. It’s now the focal point in the space.” McKinzie also brought in new appliances and gave a glass cabinet a citrusy orange interior for a pop of color. “Orange is such a strong hue, so I was mindful to not incorporate too much of it,” McKinzie says. This design element also sets the tone for the family room—a space adjacent to the kitchen—which features orange accents mixed with other secondary colors. “We didn’t want every room to feature the same tones but instead for there to be a flow throughout the home,” McKinize says. “I created visual breaks from the pops of color by having some rooms feature softer palettes, such as the living room, which includes lilac and white. It has only a small dose of additional color: the artwork above the fireplace.” McKinzie then had several upholstered furnishings custom-made, such as the master bedroom’s bed and têteà-tête in the den. Next, she sprinkled in vintage finds such as a 1970s brass-and-glass bar cart in the dining room. “I love incorporating vintage pieces into my designs,” McKinzie says. “Elements from bygone eras offer a different flavor and make for wonderful conversation pieces.” Furthermore, a 1950s Chippendale-style Asian cabinet sits perfectly poised in the family room. “We lacquered the piece a bright orange, and it’s within eyeshot of the front door. So you walk in and see this vibrant cabinet,” McKinzie says.


The living room sofa is upholstered in Schumacher’s Sophia velvet and is joined by a gold faux bois Global Views table; a seaside display centers an Oly cocktail table, here and left. Resting on a Lapchi rug from Interior Resources are A. Rudin chairs from EC Dicken and a Scott Arthur Yerkey Design acrylic table from Ellouise Abbott. Artwork by Ruairiadh O’Connell hangs over stools from One Kings Lane.


Opposite: On the home’s backside, a spacious covered veranda provides shade from the hot Texas sun and features existing furniture; classic teak steamer chairs from Thos. Baker reside on the side of the home. A pool by Claffey Pools surrounds the landscaping, which has a tropical flair and includes windmill palms. Below: The breakfast nook with a custom banquette is covered in a plum indoor-outdoor fabric by Chella Textiles. Chairs from Palecek mingle with a custom table, both crowned with a Visual Comfort fixture from Taylors on Ten. The Conrad Imports shade, purchased from EC Dicken, was handcrafted from vetiver root.


“The owners wanTed a very simple, clean-lined hampTons-sTyle pool wiTh minimal decking.”

-Tiffany mckinzie


In the master bedroom’s seating area, chairs by Hickory Chair, covered in a Pindler fabric, provide a prime spot for conversation. Side tables and floor lamps, all from Arteriors, round out the setting along with a custom ottoman by McKinzie covered in a Clarke & Clarke velvet. Artwork is by Scott Reeder.

To incorporate pattern into the spaces, McKinzie and the wife wallpapered several rooms. “The warmth of a textured wallpaper or an amazing grass cloth adds so much depth and personality to a room that paint just isn’t capable of doing,” McKinzie says. Pattern was also added in the form of fabrics—some by Effe Collection, founded by Alice Franklin, who traveled the world taking photographs before founding her textile company. “Her patterns are brilliant and different,” says McKinzie. “Everything comes from her love of photography and what she finds to be beautiful in nature.” Throughout the project, the couple worked with New York-based art adviser Laura Solomon, of Laura Solomon Fine Art, to find new pieces and place them throughout the home.

They especially enjoy discovering up-and-coming contemporary artists. “I love how art can transform the mood of a room with texture and color,” says the wife. “The pieces provide energy, light and playfulness.” McKinzie brought in a few pieces, as well, such as two original works by Naomi Ernest in the living room and another by Ernest in the master bedroom. Throughout the process, the wife honored principles of feng shui, an ancient Chinese practice used to create balance in a home. “It was about designing rooms that evoked harmony and calmness,” McKinzie says. As the wife considers their home’s new vibe, she says, “Feng shui has been a great guiding force. Now, the home has such good energy and flow.”


Suzanne Kasler’s desk from Hickory Chair coordinates with an Oly chair covered in Effe Collection fabric from EC Dicken in the master bedroom. A custom bed upholstered in serene Pindler velvet is dressed in bedding from Peacock Alley. Bernhardt nightstands from Gorrod Gallery sport Arteriors lamps. The rug from Truett Fine Carpets & Rugs grounds the space and a Mongolian wool footstool is from Huff Harrington in Atlanta.

AT HOME WITH BELLA VITA

Luxe Interiors + Design joined Bella Vita Custom Homes to celebrate the grand opening of its Preston Hollow model home. Guests toured the property while enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, hand-rolled cigars and live music. Bella Vita wants you to “live beautifully,” and this party enabled everyone to visualize him or herself doing just that.

FROM PAPER TO PRODUCTION

Hornbeak-Ortiz creates fashion-forward lifestyle lines, while Smith’s one-of-a-kind pieces are designed onsite in her Alabama studio.
