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.
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.
Washingtonâ€™s revolutionary style pays fitting homage to its namesake. Ornate and ethereal, the detailed curves of its artisan-crafted glassware are balanced by the pristine clarity of its inner framework.

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.

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

“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.

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.

“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.”

Excitement is permeating the kitchen and bath industry—just talk to an expert, and you’ll feel it too. Materials, both new and centuries old, are transcending the ordinary, even the “high-end” rubric; instead, they are interesting, they evoke warmth—they tell a story. The key words are no longer form and function but rather, beauty and technology. Together, these two formerly opposite elements create intimate spaces that are vividly original. Eggersmann

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.

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.

Make sure your hardware and accessories match your design aesthetic and never sacrifice on quality or design—it will show.
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.”
1. Discovery iQ Dual-Fuel ranges are available in 36" and 48" sizes. Range can be configured in designer colors with DacorMatch™ Color System. 2. New Discovery integrated refrigerator is available in timeless stainless or custom panel models in 30" and 36" widths.

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.

tangIBle IntellIgence: “Every kitchen requires functional storage space that not only is accessible, but is clever in function,” soltoff says. “Examples include specialized pantry systems, specialty fitting dishwashers, inserts and utensil dividers.”
uBIquItous materIals, reBorn: In 2015, Eggersmann’s work will reveal innovative uses of organic materials, such as concretes and raw wood, as well as industrial finishes, such as stainless steel, copper, bronze and aluminum.
contInuIty control: “It is important to have a specific style carried throughout the space,” soltoff asserts. “Many kitchens are a part of and centered around the living space of the home. This doesn’t mean that the kitchen must match the style of furniture, interior trim and construction. often, our kitchens are shown as a juxtaposition or unexpected center of the home.” 1
Equal parts form and function, eggersmann’s cabinetry delivers beautiful and useful organizational solutions to the modern home dweller. The company, drawing from more than 100 years of innovation, trial and achievement, is a driving force behind the concealed kitchen—a design movement that gives way to gallery-like spaces in the kitchen, and the cabinetry is art. Using earthborn, organic materials such as raw wood and concrete, Eggersmann’s ultra sleek and clean-lined cabinetry reimagines modernity in a warm and inviting fashion. “We start with the most intrinsically raw materials available, including woods, metals and glass,” shares Eggersmann UsA cEo Michael soltoff. “With these materials used in various textures, colors and sheens, we constantly push the limits of the basic core components.” The Eggersmann design foundation is built on key Bauhaus architectural characteristics—flat, smooth surfaces, cubic shapes, neutral colors and open floor plans (fundamentally pure and resounding in utility)—and is distinguished by technological feats in cabinetry composition and ergonomics, such as its electric mechanisms, custom storage, handle integration and exotic veneers. “The wide availability of parts, components, hardware and materials across the world has caused a demand and push for incredible leaps and bounds in innovation of product,” soltoff says. “As electronic technology becomes more compact and lightweight, we see an increase in automation in our products, and it has become more of an integrated component of lifestyle, rather than just a cabinet or case good.”
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.”

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’s experts weIgh In
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.

walker Zanger Widely regarded as one of the world’s most esteemed purveyors of luxury stone and tile, Walker Zanger was founded more than 60 years ago with the vision to combine the authenticity of meticulously hand-selected marble and stone with the efficiency of new technologies. The company is still guided by its original vision, curating stones from all corners of the globe to ensure the best quality while implementing technology that has yet to be seen elsewhere in the industry. “We take advantage of new technologies, like waterjet or laser etching, to create new types of products,” says vice President of design and Marketing Jared Becker.
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.

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.
market / spotlight
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. Story: This collection reminds me of ancient vessels found at archeological digs in Egypt and then revived with an artisanal sensibility that fits into today’s world.
the ColleCtion: Alchimie de Venise the deSigner: Fortuny for L’Objet find it: l-objet.com the inSPiration: Iconic Fortuny patterns were applied to create the company’s sophomore collection for L’Objet, inspired by the diverse artisans found in the city the textile house calls home: Venice.

luke edward hall interior designer, stylist and illustrator
Brilliance: The resin top of this bench is quite kaleidoscopic. For me, it’s all about color and pattern: A vibrant mix of shapes and materials can make something quite classic in style feel fresh and modern. fun: Playfulness is very important. I like design with a good heart and a strong personality. Mood: This bench attracts attention. It feels Jurassic—the top looks as if it’s made from ancient, vibrant fossils. It would make for a great psychedelic addition to an entryway.

artist and designer young in the mountains
Designer: I am taken with how playful and fearless Christopherâ€™s work is; heâ€™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. Vision: The tables are seemingly optical illusions: If you look at them long enough, you might see something unexpected.
shaping a legacy the pieces: Clockwise from top: Palm, Ruby and Gordon Wall Brackets the designer: Robert Long find it: robertlonglighting.com the inspiration: Continuing his late father’s legacy, Long has recreated these sconces with the same meticulous construction and core values his father crafted 50 years ago.

artistry: Robert Long’s pieces redefine the traditional sconce. His lighting style blurs the line between art and functional design. Materiality: The handblown glass adds rusticity to the sophisticated design, while the polished brass balances the fixture with modern simplicity. craftsmanship: The handmade process breathes life into a product and into our homes. 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

benjamin vandiver interior designer benjamin vandiver interiors + lifestyle
Timelessness: Investing in steadfast brands, like Sahco, is paramount in many of my projects. My clients want to know that the products we use have stood and will stand the test of time. Perspective: Clouds is a way to incorporate an organic approach to projects without diluting a structured and studied interior. Color: I’m always looking for a sophisticated way to introduce color; the fluid, adaptable palette of Clouds fits this challenging task. Design: I see myself using the muted tones of this fabric in bedrooms, mostly—Roman shades, upholstered headboards or on the walls.

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.

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

this seasonâ€™s must-haves and design essentials for heating things up al fresco. Written BY brielle m. ferreira
the great outdoors thanks to the many innovations in technology and digital conveniences, our lives have become a study in seamless living, with phones and other handheld devices providing an effortless transition between work and downtime, study and recess. this trend, too, has found its way into the design of our homes, where outdoor spaces have become just as comfortable and wonderfully complex as interior living and dining rooms. from whimsical seating options and creative landscape architecture to all-weather fabrics that are as beautiful as they are durable, today, more than ever, there are no boundaries or restrictions on making the most of your time outdoors.

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

teak is a dependable outdoor staple, but sometimes it can be interesting to bend the rules a little. literally. the tres chic chaise lounge from tommy Bahama, for example, uses the material’s best properties—it’s resilient, weathers beautifully and is water-resistant— and introduces an unexpected, sinuous silhouette for a sleek, modern style that’s built to last. lexington.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
life’s not all fun and games—that’s what outdoor spaces are for. so, go ahead and fan your competitive ﬂame by introducing venues for both sports and recreation. this handsome tennis court by celebrated new York interdisciplinary firm sawyer | Berson, for example, proves that you can have it all: style in spades and a killer backhand. sawyerberson.com

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

tall, vertical manicured shrubs have become de rigueur in ultra-exclusive enclaves like palm Beach—the subtropical setting of this backyard scene by designer thad hayes—where privacy is at a premium. the trick to making these disparate hedges and bushes, like the plush ficus and flowering bougainvillea here, work together is a keen trimming job with lots of sharp right angles that transform the expanses of green into veritable living sculpture. thadhayes.com

Because modern design is all about blurring the lines between indoors and out, selecting the appropriate color palette to tie the two separate areas together is an absolute necessity. on this welcoming, covered los angeles patio, designer Jamie Bush brought the yellows and oranges from the home’s family room poolside for a cohesive look. “i think the perfect outdoor space needs to be as appointed and comfortable as an interior living room, so you never feel like it’s second best,” says Bush. “for this space, we used items like a chunky area rug, vintage pottery and an african side table to make the outdoor lounge area feel like an extension of the house.” jamiebush.com

ESSENTIALS Outdoor furnishings guru John Danzer, of New York-based Munder Skiles, looks to the history of the genre to craft his timeless, well-built offerings. Here, he shares his tips for effortless outdoor living. Take stock: Think about how you use your home, not only when you’re there with your immediate family but when you’re entertaining extended family and friends, too. Simplify: Don’t overcomplicate your life. My job is complex, but my furniture is not. Look for well-designed furniture that
fits the shape of your body and is naturally comfortable. Let nature shine: I can’t stand furniture being too prominent in a garden. Everything you bring into your outdoor space should be able to recede so you can enjoy the real reason you’re out there: to be closer to nature. munder-skiles.com
Anyone who thinks that being made to sit on the bench is a bad thing probably hasn’t watched the sun set from one in the midst of an elegant garden. With a classic silhouette and intricate scrollwork, this sophisticated bench from McKinnon and Harris may just be better than hitting the game-winning home run. mckinnonharris.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. Integrating some lush groundcover, like thyme or dichondra, between the stones, as the Lambert Landscape Company did for this pretty Dallas home, can completely transform the space. lamberts.net

l d u n f a ti d u l a o e b b A MARYLAND COUPLE SEEK DESIGNER GUIDANCE TO INJECT MODERN ENERGY AND DARING COLOR INTO A HOME FILLED WITH FAMILY HEIRLOOMS.
WRITTEN BY JENNIFER SERGENT PHOTOGRAPHY BY STACY ZARIN-GOLDBERG
Designer Erica Burns searched for colorful books online to augment her clientâ€™s existing collection and fill out the built-in shelving in the family room. Brushed-cotton chairs in a rich peacock hue and a vintage-rug-covered ottoman, both by Lee Industries, extend that rainbow into the room.
had this vision of making it a little jewel box,” homeowner Candace Ourisman recalls thinking when she and her husband, Chris, purchased their first house together in Bethesda, Maryland: a 1948 center-hall Colonial with a recent twostory addition off the back. They already had many of the gems—the couple moved in with an impressive collection of antiques handed down from both their families—so the next step was infusing the home with jolts of contemporary style and Candace’s unabashed love of color. Candace had been chronicling her inspirations for the new home on her personal style blog, using phrases such as “proud and fearless,” “daring yet classic,” and “minimal yet opulent” to describe the saturated images of interiors and fashion that she was posting. But she needed help channeling it all into a home that “wouldn’t look like a circus,” she explains. After interviewing several designers, the Ourismans landed on Erica Burns, whom Candace had met through a mutual friend, and in the first meeting, the couple knew she understood what they were looking for. “I could feel this traditional thread laced through what they wanted, but with plenty of color,” Burns explains. “It was very 1970s glam—and a little bit Kelly Wearstler,” the Hollywood designer whose interiors make frequent appearances on Candace’s blog.

Right: A provocative photograph by New Yorkbased photographer Ben Watts dominates the family room.

The layout of the home lent itself to the lady of the house’s jewel box notion, with smaller rooms in the original section presenting an opportunity for wildly different hues and patterns from one space to the next. “I liked the idea of people walking through these separate rooms, and each space having its own energy,” Candace says. Emerald and gold take the stage in the dining room, where an elaborate gilded mirror—a gift from Chris’ grandmother—occupies an entire wall, and the windows are dressed in billowing green silk-taffeta. To avoid a country club feel, “the dining room just needed something really bold on the walls,” Burns says. Wearstler’s graphic Channels wallpaper fit the bill, topped with a Made Goods chandelier fashioned from brass palm leaves. “It’s so Candace,” the designer adds. “It’s Palm Beach-y, but it’s edgy Palm Beach-y.”

Across the foyer, Burns embodied the “floral amazingness” Candace had described in one of her blog posts with Isaac Mizrahi’s Mega Chintz on floor-toceiling drapery panels, which explode in purple, pink and blue blooms. “I’ve always loved that fabric, but never had the chance to use it,” she says; the owners’ living room gave her the long-awaited opportunity. The draperies dictated the color scheme, which Burns indulged with deep eggplant-hued velvet on the sofa, kelly green cording on the white linen slipper chairs and varied juicy hues on the throw pillows. Anchoring it all is a large antique coffee table, gilded demilune table from Candace’s mother and a neutral sisal rug. Art played a large part in each room’s design. Candace, who collects fine art photography, hung an oversize print by Polish photographer Sonia Szóstak in

the living room—a black-and-white image of models in swimsuits that adds contrast to a room filled with vintage pieces. “I wanted something graphic, and I like that it’s a little sexy,” says Candace. “Sexy” gets amplified in the family room addition, where an even bigger print by fashion photographer Ben Watts depicts women on rainbow-colored bicycles. “I loved the energy. It felt so positive and happy and strong,” Candace says. Burns then stepped in, combing the wife’s collection of vintage books for covers in red, yellow, blue and green to create another rainbow on the adjacent shelves. Candace had blogged about the Watts and Szóstak works before placing them in her home, and she had mused about many of the color combinations that now fill its rooms. “She has a great eye for spectacular things,” Burns says. “She had the vision and the antiques; I helped her bring everything together.”
Burns enveloped the master bedroom in Benjamin Mooreâ€™s Hale Navy. To contrast the deep slate blue, she sprinkled in lighter elements, such as the bed and customized bench by Noir Furniture, a flokati rug by Restoration Hardware, a brass chandelier by Visual Comfort and white tassel Arteriors Home lamps.
landscape designer heather shouseâ€™s one-of-a-kind creations help keep chicago flourishing with greenery. written by april hardwick / photography by cynthia lynn

isit any of landscape designer Heather Shouse’s projects and prepare to be met with a visual feast. At Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, for instance, a variety of plants hanging in black ceramic pots appear to cascade out of the ceiling, cleverly hiding wires from the restaurant’s digital menu boards. It’s just one of the many ventures Shouse has taken on as founder of Bottle & Branch, a firm specializing in botanical installations, landscaping and floral design. Shouse spent most of her childhood summers outdoors assembling found objects into terrariums— which are now a niche part of her company—so it’s not surprising that this pastime has bloomed into a thriving business. “Terrariums are a great way to create a little biosphere that replicates a place or a feeling,” Shouse says. A creative visionary with an encyclopedic knowledge of plant life, Shouse lives by the maxim that if you can dream it, she can create it. “We’re not just a landscape design firm; anything you ask us to do, we can make happen,” she says. “I have an excellent team of welders, carpenters, electricians and glassblowers.” Which is why, as Shouse points out, none of her projects can be replicated. “We want these creations to be one-of-a-kind, so the clients feel like we’ve given them a unique product,” she says. With a loyal following, Shouse’s calendar is booked filling popular Chicago eateries and homes with green walls, plant installations, florals and exterior landscaping. She relies on both word of mouth and frequent collaborations with such large restaurant clients as Boka Restaurant Group, who often turn to her again when opening other outposts. Shouse works closely with each owner and chef throughout the process before pulling the designs together at her home on the Fox River, where she has a greenhouse and workshop. “I grow edible plants in the greenhouse and produce all of the terrariums in my workshop,” she says. “Balancing all of these different projects keeps things interesting.” The designer is particularly excited about her most recent venture: an all-tropical patio for Element Collective’s new seasonal sidewalk cafe, Expat. “I got a lot of inspiration for the landscape design during a trip to Puerto Rico,” says Shouse. “I’m excited about this project because I typically use more Midwestern perennials, and this is a chance to play around with tropicals.” Sounds like another visual feast in the making.

Heather Shouse maintains several landscape elements for Chicago’s Boka restaurant, including a green wall, shown here and previous pages, which features preserved mood moss, wall-mounted staghorn ferns and artwork by Rachel Convers.

or Tod and Bonnie Greenfield, commissioning a home designed specifically for them and their two teenage daughters just made sense. After all, Tod runs the family company, Martin Greenfield Clothiers, which for decades has been tailoring bespoke suits for U.S. presidents, pop stars and hit cable television shows. So when the couple decided they wanted a home that would need less maintenance than their aging 1960s-era split-level, they called on architect Stuart Narofsky to build anew. “The original house needed a lot of repair work, and so we chose to start from scratch instead of renovating what we had,” Tod explains, noting that the original abode’s wooden shingles needed to be scraped and painted regularly. “We couldn’t find any place that we liked better than our special piece of land, so we opted to just knock our house down and start over.” The result is a modernist concrete home clad with reclaimed wood milled from black locust trees that grew on the site before being felled during Hurricane Irene. “Right from the beginning, Stuart was interested in creating a kind of pathway that wound around a central courtyard with a series of almost pavilion-like rooms that were building up as they spiraled around,” explains architect John DeFazio, who assisted during the initial planning stages. In fact, the J-shaped home literally straddles a dip in the landscape, allowing the lawn to pass underneath the building. “The landscape actually moves through the house,” explains Narofsky, whose firm handled not only the architectural plans but also the construction and interior design. According to structural engineer Nat Oppenheimer, of Silman, using concrete to build a home is more complicated than using it in more typical commercial designs. “The column grid and layout were predicated almost entirely on walls and partitions inside the house rather than the usual, simpler structural grid,” he explains. “Because of this, we had to be very conscious of the size, layout and profile of the concrete.” To minimize the impact of the construction 160 / luxe interiors + design
Separating the main living area from the sunken seating nest that overlooks the forested yard is a modular bookshelf made from pin oaks that were removed from the property. To reinforce the connection to the exterior, a custom sofa and matching loveseat covered in gray leather by Spinneybeck was designed by Ways2Design to resemble boulders.

on the land, landscape architect Jeff Dragan transplanted many of the plant material, including English oak, Japanese umbrella pine and Colorado blue spruce trees, as well as a variety of shrubs, to a temporary nursery. “We moved the material and then put it back after construction,” Dragan explains. “The house didn’t need a lot of foundation planting or accents.” Indeed, because nearly every room has direct access to the rolling green lawn, the house seems to be part of the landscape. To bring the sunshine inside, the courtyard side of the house was clad in a translucent polycarbonate panel, which floods the home with daylight. In the evening, the panel is illuminated from the inside, which creates a warm glow in the courtyard. “The house is full of discoveries,” Narofsky says. In places where drywall would ordinarily be, Narofsky either exposed the rough concrete surface, which was poured into wood forms that lend the surface an organic
appearance, or he covered it with custom MDF panels that had been screwed onto oak framing. “We expressed the oak framing rather than hiding it,” Narofsky notes. “It became a real arts-and-crafts endeavor.” In fact, nearly every railing, bench and vanity in the home was built using wood salvaged from the property. “We had to figure out what we had to work with and how to implement that in the house as we went along, all while making it a luxury home that’s super-functional,” explains interior designer Katrina Hermann, who worked alongside interior designer Jennifer Rusch. “As you go through the house, you see all these interesting elements, which come either from the deep recesses of our brains or from the backyard.” To contrast the reclaimed wood, mottled concrete and other organic elements, the designers took special care to create other, more decorated areas. “We tried to find places in the home that we could kind of polish for

The structure was built from poured concrete with vertical siding from wood milled from black locust trees felled during Hurricane Irene. The roof is a liquid-applied roofing system by Kemper System.

Bonnie and achieve that high level of design within this deconstructed atmosphere,” says Rusch. In the kitchen, for example, sleek counter surfaces—white Corian for the island and stainless steel for the perimeter—complement contemporary cabinetry from Eggersmann. “We felt that the kitchen should be this sort of glamorous, smooth and seamless millwork masterpiece,” Rusch adds. The living room was furnished with oversize sofas that were designed to resemble large boulders coming out of the ground. “We upholstered them in raw cut buffalo hide and let the natural cuts define where the seams were going to be,” Hermann explains. “While they look very rigid, they are actually very comfortable and seat a lot of people.” Narofsky’s favorite spot in the house is a sunken seating pit surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the forested backyard. “You step down into it and you’re hovering off the corner of the house,” he says, noting that it was inspired by the iconic 50s-era Eero Saarinen-designed Miller House in Indiana. A custom bookshelf creates a sense of separation between the nest and nearby living room. “I put the nest in the prime viewing spot of the property,” he says, “and it’s the most wonderful place to sit. Whenever I visit the house, I’m just in awe.”

“MY STUDIO IS BASICALLY A GREENHOUSE. I’VE ALWAYS LOOKED TO NATURE TO SPARK MY IMAGINATION.”
T Above: Barnacles inspired Jenny Kiker’s latest fabric print for Living Pattern, her modern line of bespoke wallpaper and textiles. Right: A repeating pattern of maidenhair ferns allows these wallpapers to bring the outside in. Opposite: All of Kiker’s designs begin with sketches she draws or paints in her studio.
rue artists can be known simply by experiencing their work: one look at their pieces and immediately you have a window into their soul. Such is the case with Jenny Kiker, who pours herself into her creations using walls as her canvas. Living Pattern, her bespoke line of wallpapers and textiles, comprises mini reflections of her that are at once fresh, modern and organic. Her prints are a menagerie of lush flora and fauna that bring the outside in, with muses ranging from maidenhair ferns to the small detail of a beetle’s back. “I was looking through the book Pheromone: The Insect Artwork of Christopher Marley and immediately fell in love with this gorgeous Goliath beetle’s shell markings and knew I had to make it into a paper. It’s a new take on a cheetah print,” says Kiker, who works with her partner in business and in life, Chris Johnston. Kiker’s by-hand approach to making pattern is what sets her apart, drawing and developing her motifs in her studio before they are printed in Chicago. Though she uses traditional techniques, she does so with a clean, contemporary lean that speaks to her love of Australian design. “It’s bright with hints of modern but still organic,” she notes of the region’s aesthetic. “Australian designers are the world’s trendsetters to me. I love how they take black and white and add saturated pops of color.” When the artist isn’t busy brushing her next stroke or inking her custom stamps, she can easily be spotted driving around town in Little Donkey, her 1990 ecruhued Ford Ranger, foraging for new inspirations to bring back to her studio. Perched above the Brass Scale Antiques shop in West Palm Beach, Florida, her work space is brimming with nods to Mother Nature. “I’m a plant hoarder,” she says. “My studio is basically a greenhouse. If I’m not sketching, I usually have a plant mister in my hand. I’ve always looked to nature to spark my imagination.” luxe interiors + design / 177

t’s the lush landscape that draws visitors into this white sprawling home in a verdant suburb of Milwaukee. Like a rich textural patchwork, a terraced garden unfolds in nuanced shades of green, rose and amber, manicured with shapely boxwood where it needs to be, and a little wild with creeping sedum and drifts of lavender and nepeta where it’s more suitable. Lannon stone steps slope down a path to a pond, where an old willow’s wispy branches arc above. On the more than 4-acre site, two weathered barns look as though they’ve been standing since the turn of the century. In fact, they are actually a more recent addition—crafted from reclaimed wood—as is a charming stone folly that seems as if it was plucked from the countryside in Brittany, France. These endearing features, however, were not always so. “I can’t say that there was anything magical,” explains the wife about the couple’s initial encounter with the property. “We were young, and it was the first house we purchased. But we liked the location and that it offered a lot of privacy on a pond.” Adds designer Jessica Jubelirer: “The owners understood that the property provided a unique opportunity to create a home that fit their needs and reflected their personal taste.” The original structure, though—a white clapboard two-bedroom ranch with black shutters, built in
1967 and purchased by the couple 22 years later—was absent of a particular architectural style. “Every side was covered with sliding patio doors, and the floor plan just wasn’t right,” says the wife. Yet the couple, along with architect Jorgen R. Hansen, could see the possibilities; Hansen imagined the home as a Greek Revival that would look like it had evolved over time, stretching up and out over the property, with a whisper of asymmetry. Inside, the architect reorganized the existing floor plan, creating a more formal entry under a circular dome in a square front hall that leads into formal areas to the right and a new family room and kitchen to the left. Windows not only admit light but also gloriously frame views of the landscape, while extra-wide door openings add to the expansive feeling of the home. “In all the main spaces, you can see light in multiple directions,” says Hansen. Still, the plan is very traditional, with many rooms defined by ceilings with coffers, vaults and beams. “They wanted contemporary living but in a traditional fashion,” says Jubelirer. The couple, who share the home with their teenage son, have been collecting antiques for many years. While they are both history buffs and antiquities aficionados, the husband is especially fond of late-18th- and early-19th-century styles, as well as Federal period furnishings. “I love old
Architect Jorgen R. Hansen designed a new two-story wing for this pristine Wisconsin home, which faces a pond on the north side and features such spaces as a large family room, kitchen and breakfast room, among others. The existing building was re-clad in lap siding, painted white to match the addition for a seamless transition.

wood with character: dense grain, worm holes, spalting and especially patina,” he says. Adds Jubelirer: “They particularly love wood pieces that tell a story.” To achieve a balanced look, Jubelirer took stock of the owners’ many antiques, added new elements where appropriate and tweaked existing furnishings with new upholstery and slipcovers. “The goal was to incorporate these traditional elements with comfort and modernity in mind,” she says. The designer furthered this notion in the cozy library, hanging modern artwork against walls covered in a tweedy wool bouclé. “It softens everything in the room and is a great backdrop to the millwork,” she says. In addition, the walls in the husband’s office are wrapped in cognac-hued glazed-leather blocks, a rich backdrop for his collection of historical etchings. Finding just the right elements—such as the statement-making dining room rug— suits the overall organic process. “Each piece is unique and rich and creates a layering effect,” says the designer. Layering continues in the kitchen, where an antique rug covers quarter-sawn white-oak floors, and antique lanterns lend a beautiful patina. “Her vision was very simple, timeless and clean, with white-painted cabinets and traditional undertones,” says Jubelirer of the wife’s wishes.

notion while also nodding to the scenery outdoors. In turn, the cedar-plank ceiling and walls in the sun room were brushed with milk paint to allow the wood to show through and painted a blue-green shade to connect with the flooring and outdoors. “It feels like an extension of the terrace, especially since the floor is also bluestone,” says Jubelirer. “The spectacular property and landscape were always a driving force when shaping the interiors of the home.” Outside, landscape architect Judith Stark redesigned the terrain that was shaken up because of remodeling, excavations and new grading. She created a stone retaining wall, which informed more formal terraces, one covered with a pergola. “Each space outside has a
different mood and personality, much like the interiors, with areas of sun and shade,” says Stark. The husband enjoys horticulture and provided a variety of plant materials for Stark to work with. In addition, he was very hands-on during the design of the outbuildings, which he worked on in collaboration with the mason who also maintains the lawn and a carpenter who loves to use reclaimed wood, borrowing details from both American and European architecture. “Each of the main spaces in the house has a connection to the outdoors,” says Hansen. “The old home used to seem like it was just floating in a lawn. Now, it’s a pristine white house offset by the deep green colors of the surrounding landscape.”
