In a Greenwich, Connecticut, estate, timeless antiques and a modern art collection shake up an otherwise traditional Georgianstyle brick Colonial.
The classic architecture and picturesque vistas of this Hudson Valley house became the perfect backdrop for a homeowner’s prized possessions.
When a New York-based designer tackles an oversize SoHo loft, a shocking shade steals the show amongst the tailored, Asian-inspired décor.
A young family moves out of the city and finds an Arts and Craftsstyle home that came equipped with covetable views of New Jersey’s Navesink River.

Designer Inson Dubois Wood painted the den of this Greenwich, Connecticut, home a mossy green hue to complement the many antiques and pick up the blue tones in the Safavieh silk rug. Page 272

hen it comes to style, for some it’s about making a bold statement, while others opt for elegant, inviting interiors. Architects and designers are in the
business of fueling the creative dreams of homeowners, yet it is no simple task, as each project has to resonate with the client and connect with its sense of place. In this annual Gold List issue, we once again celebrate the ideas and visions behind today’s industry tastemakers. While there’s no question that sceneries and lifestyles across the country are diverse, these passionate champions distill it down and share a common thread: imagining and designing homes that ring personal and true. Practical matters, of course, also factor in: When asked what every home needs, designer Thom Filicia answered, “a soul, a point of view, and a spot to make a really great cocktail!”

[mia romanik] one or two, make sure it’s Art Basel in Miami Beach or the FIAC in Paris; they have something for everyone. Who’s on your radar right now? Daniel Turner, Michael Rey, Matt Sheridan Smith, and Theodora Allen are young and up-and-coming artists on very good career trajectories. They’re all talented and quite different in terms of style.
Any tips for novice collectors? Above all: Buy what you love. Though, it is very important to do your research and see as much art as possible. For me, when I’m looking for pieces, it’s always instinctual—a feeling I get about the work. Then, I follow the artist for a while, and if that feeling stays, I’m sold; I’m a believer. miaromanik.com

MONTCLAIR ART MUSEUM
“Kathryn Markel, of Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, is incredibly knowledgeable and warm, and she has a real respect for even the novice’s opinion. She represents many talented artists, so there is truly something for everyone inside her Chelsea gallery.”
“I’m into a lot of esoteric art, and lately, I’ve fallen in love with local artist Keren Brender. She’s very young, but the work she’s producing is way beyond her years. My favorites are the pieces she’s done with X-ray imaging; they feel so intimate and personal.”
“In terms of purchasing art, I think Barbara Gladstone and Gavin Brown have made incredible strides in supporting, discovering and introducing new artists in their young galleries. Sears-Peyton Gallery is also very good, and they have some really beautiful pieces.”
-SARA GILBANE SULLIVAN
WHO: Ambra Medda, a girl who has had a hand in different WHAT:
The exhibit “Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s”
examines the themes of identity politics, digital revolution and globalization through the eyes of the talented artists who lived through—and who have attempted to make sense of—this polarizing period in mainstream culture through installations, paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photography, video, and digital art.
You can visit
the museum at 3 S. Mountain Avenue in Montclair, New Jersey. WHEN: The show will begin on February 8 and run through May 17.
Expect to find 65 works from over
45 artists working in America, including Doug Aitken, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Glenn Ligon, Julie Mehretu, Prema Murthy, Shirin Neshat, Catherine Opie, Gabriel Orozco, Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Kara Walker.
Because you don’t have to look back too far to learn more about the history that has shaped our society today; sometimes, you only need to search as close to home as that Nirvana record you couldn’t live without.

facets of design, as cofounder of both L’ArcoBaleno and Design Miami/, is on to her next venture creating a video series documenting craft traditions found in various regions of the world. WHAT: Medda seizes each day, regarding it as an opportunity to see more, learn more and connect more with the people and ideas surrounding her, fueling her deep passion for design. Capturing the unexpected in her vignettes, expect to see snapshots from museum outings and frequent travels mixed in with the occasional overhead shot of her favorite metallic Roger Vivier shoes. WHY: Travel the world from the comfort of your phone by adding @ambramedda to your Instagram feed. With an intuition and insight about the design realm that is bar none, Medda’s feed is fresh, thoughtprovoking and the essence of cool. [in her words]
“It’s about capturing the moments and images that inspire me in my day-to-day. Whether I’m strolling through a city or encountering a new designer’s work, the key is to always be open, alert and ready to shoot.”

TALENT SHOW [jason middlebrook]
Hudson artist Jason Middlebrook likes to make beautiful things. “Beauty forces people to stop and look,” he says, “to ponder and think and hopefully wonder.” In short, he uses his art to begin a dialog with those who view it, one that centers around nature and its inherent complexities. Middlebrook’s pieces, his intricate paintings and sculptures, reflect where he’s going and where he’s been—with some three-dimensional elements he learned from his ceramicist father and a love of plants and trees he inherited from his landscape designer mother. Here, a conversation with the artist after wrapping his recent show at Untitled in Miami. jasonmiddlebrook.com Describe your aesthetic vision. I’m really a site artist. Every piece, project and show then that I participate in is about the site. I use wood and paint to create a dialog between nature and humans. A single slab of wood from a tree in the forest has enough information for me to build an entire body of work around it.
What materials do you most enjoy working with? In the last 10 years or so, I have used bronze, steel and mosaic glass tiles in my art and have really enjoyed working with all of them. Primarily, though, I use old growth hardwood and acrylic paint to capture viewers and inspire reflection.
Who’s another local artist to watch? Jeffrey Gibson is doing some very interesting work here and so is Geoffrey Good. Good is a jewelry designer, who owns his own showroom in Hudson, and his work is really amazing. Also, keep your eyes peeled for the artist Lisa Sanditz; she’s another one of my favorites.
What does it mean to be an artist in Upstate New York? It’s amazing. I’ve made a real home here. The Hudson Valley region is so supportive of artists, and there are museums peppered throughout the area. Some great artists have moved here. Brooklyn is not sustainable any longer, and artists need low overheads in order to follow their dreams.

And for his part, Hayon delivered in a big way: His Vico collection, which features a two- and three-seater sofa and armchair, seamlessly marries function with the slick style and quirky, creative silhouettes for which he is known. cassina.com

egardless of their creative persuasion there is something that all artists have in common: we all have a voice,” muses rug and textile designer Madeline Weinrib, who began her illustrious career not by practicing her whipstitch or learning to
loom, but rather as a painter. Unsure of exactly how to translate her ideas from canvas to housewares, Weinrib proceeded with caution, initially hesitant to delve into a then male-dominated rug industry. She ultimately took a leap of faith after recognizing that there was great potential, and soon began to flex her artistry while putting her passport to good use, making frequent trips to Turkey, Morocco, Nepal, and India to garner inspiration and cultivate relationships with other craftsmen. “Artisans are masters at what they do,” says Weinrib. “They’ve worked extremely hard to develop their talents.” The many influences and takeaways collected along her journeys find a home inside Weinrib’s Manhattan showroom, an artful space that reflects more than the designer’s aesthetic. “My studio is an extension of my home,” she says. “Everything is chosen with pure love.” From custom floorcoverings and sumptuous fabrics to exquisite furnishings and modern accessories, each offering is designed to inspire clients, honor the bespoke, and spotlight philanthropic endeavors—such as Weinrib’s ambassadorship for Project Mala, an initiative that aims to build schools and provide opportunity in India’s rugproducing region. It is all a part of Weinrib’s greater objective: To have her artistic vision and unmistakable style tightly woven into everything she touches. Says the designer, “It is imperative that whatever I create feels like it is part of my body of work, and that it reflects my point of view—my visual voice.”
Weinrib will be opening two outposts abroad: one in Luke Irwin’s ultrachic London showroom and the other in Mumbai at Bungalow 8. The designer’s enigmatic prints find a home on a Paul McCobb bench, below in Remy, and on the famed silhouettes of three Manolo Blahnik pumps, center. Shown right is an image snapped by Weinrib of the Blue Mosque in Instanbul.

Weinrib began her collection of Indian photography after being inspired by an exhibit seen some 20 years ago at New York’s Sepia Eye Gallery. The designer’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Gemma and Daphne, rest on her Black Mu ikat slipper chair.
This winter, Weinrib debuts the Kuba Collection (Salome is shown above), inspired by vintage African textiles, as well as an assortment of handwoven Moroccan throws, far left, the Purple Sunder umbrella for New York’s Neue Galerie (its Sunder suzani fabric is shown left), and a perfectly packaged Moroccan argan oil, center left. madelineweinrib.com
without borders in her third line with baker, designer laura kirar offers a glimpse into a life well-traveled.

e’ve created a collection that inspires spaces evocative of an evolved lifestyle: relaxed, elegant, well-traveled, and
thoughtfully composed,” describes designer Laura Kirar of her most recent partnership with Baker. The steadfast furnishings brand is placing Kirar in the driver’s seat for the third time, and in this latest collaboration, she gives us a peek into her personal travels and the art of collecting. Reflecting architectural elements from around the world— such as the lyrical curves of Moorish archways seen in her Arabesque bed—the collection carries an unexpected mix of forms shaped by timeless silhouettes. Each piece speaks of luxury while maintaining a strong raw aesthetic that is often found in Kirar’s creations. “I am thoroughly inspired by historical details and proportions,” explains the designer. “When I spot something ‘perfect’ on my travels I photograph or sketch it, and it lives in my inspiration library.” Citing such influences as Spanish Colonial doors with hammered nailheads and exotic cabinetry from Portugal, Kirar integrates decorative wood finishes with primitive-inspired metalwork. Pieces, like the of attention—from conception, to prototyping, to completion. “Every experience I have—reading, traveling, studying, people I’ve met—is really informative and allows me to constantly change and grow,” says the designer. “Life is what teaches me.”

BEHIND THE BRAND
HOLDING PATTERN SCHUMACHER DEBUTS AN ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION 125 YEARS IN THE MAKING THAT CHRONICLES ITS OWN RICH HISTORY OF PARISIAN INFLUENCES AND CLASSIC AMERICANA. WRITTEN BY ARLYN HERNANDEZ PRODUCED BY CARA GIBBS
uch can change over a dozen decades. In fact, most things do: technologies progress; mindsets evolve; styles come, go and come back again. But for textile house Schumacher, who celebrates 125 years in business, one thing has remained pre-
served—authenticity. Founded in the late 1800s by Parisian Frederic Schumacher, the brand remains faithful to the integrity of its patterns’ origins. Take Shengyou Toile, for instance; its charming design still leans on hand-drawn and -engraved techniques today as much as it did in the 18th century, lending exquisite detail.
What has evolved, though, is its pedigree. Collections include those penned by design greats as far back as Dorothy Draper to as recent as Timothy Corrigan. And it has left its own fingerprints throughout the pages of American history in the worlds of politics, cinema and television: During the Kennedy administration, the White House’s Blue Room walls were lined in a Lampas silk, while the silver screen showcased Hydrangea Drape in Gone With the Wind. To celebrate the last 125 years, Schumacher has carefully combed its vast archives to reintroduce 17 old favorites for a new generation. We sat down with Creative Director Dara Caponigro to give us some insight into the storied company and its commemorative collection. WHAT HAS GIVEN SCHUMACHER ITS LASTING POWER? We’ve always
HOW DID YOU NARROW DOWN YOUR SELECTIONS? Ultimately, we
had an underlying respect for classicism with an eye to the future; being innovative, stylish and current with a classic backbone—no matter the decade.
wanted to pick prints that are still relevant. In some cases, we blew up the scale, changed the colorways, even made loose interpretations of originals.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION.
It reflects the breadth of the Schumacher legacy, our passion for luxury and our history of designer collections. IS THERE A PERSONAL FAVORITE?
I love so many of them for different reasons. Our Serengeti pattern speaks to today’s world. It’s ultraluxurious but also soft and warm. You just want to put your face against it! I also love Citrus Garden; it’s modern yet charming, and so sweet.
WHAT MAKES THESE PATTERNS SO TIMELESS? Good design is good
design; it’ll last forever. Take our Indian Arbre print. The tree of life motif dates back to the 17th century, but people still love it. It’s about understanding your past in order to create something modern. WHAT’S ON TAP FOR THE FUTURE?
We’re looking to focus and expand on the Schumacher brand, and introduce new furniture and products. We recently debuted two wallcovering collections; I think Fabulous Faux is pretty rock and roll. There are a lot of exciting things to come.

triple threat three
share a common thread that melds tradition with innovation.

f you look closely at an antique find, you can see its age spots and laugh lines. And if you listen carefully, you can hear its story. Lighting master David Littman considers this a fascinating phenomenon, and he hopes the time-honored
yet forward-thinking fixtures by Hudson Valley Lighting, Corbett Lighting and Troy Lighting conjure the same sense of curiosity and admiration. Marrying traditional artistry with an innovative, modern approach, the pendants, chandeliers and sconces produced by the lighting trio indeed captivate. With design and manufacturing facilities in New York and California, as well as abroad, the brands engage specialty craftsmen who practice age-old techniques—think handblown glass and lost-wax casting—while employing advanced technologies. Hand finishers apply gold and silver leaf; lavish silks join Japanese papers; and polished crystal juxtaposes organic materials like bamboo and handwoven abaca. And the teams put as much care into creating experiences as they do producing the fixture itself—the shadow the light will cast, the ambience it will create in a room. This year, Hudson Valley continues to bring an updated twist to classic designs, mixing metal, acrylic and tungsten filament bulbs for its lantern-like Andover pendants. Troy takes its sophisticated-casual collection to new depths with Dine N Dash: rustic-pop art fixtures whose embossed and plasma-cut words nod to culinary persuasions. And Corbett makes its fashion-minded Rockstar lights runway-ready with jewelry-inspired agate. They’re three distinct makers telling their own narratives, but each tale ends in a promise of quality and craftsmanship. littmanbrands.com
Littman Brands produces more than 600 new designs per year, incorporating natural elements, mixed metals and jewelry-inspired materials like delicate chains, seen in Corbett’s Vixen, shown right; Corbett’s Chimera pendant is shown far right. Lately, Littman Brands has had a large push for LEDs in the decorative arena, led by innovations through another one of its companies, CSL (Creative Systems Lighting).

WADE TERWILLIGER AND RICO BACA, OBJECTS20C, CO-FOUNDERS
Brazilian furniture has captured the market’s attention, with Brazilian designers focusing on quality materials and construction. Additionally, they seem to have a sense of modern design and proportions. Jorge Zalszupin is one of the leaders in this genre; his designs are modern, proportioned, well-crafted, and exciting. Less is more. Modern designs offer simplicity. The unique silhouette of the PO-801 armchair is quiet, warm and sexy. We see it used as a pair or standing alone in a living room or bedroom. Objects20c’s clients appreciate and invest in good design, quality materials and craftsmanship. They would love this chair. In with the old: Furniture and decorative arts are a reflection of the past—the culture, the materials and the technology of the time. In our opinion, it grounds us. We always agree that our clients know what is best for their lifestyle. Style vs. comfort: Wade is sometimes willing to accept a little less comfort for something that looks off-the-charts fabulous. This season, we are excited to be finishing a new section on the second floor of our gallery focusing on contemporary art and design.
the piece: PO-801 Armchair

In the 1960s, Polish designer Zalszupin moved to Brazil to develop his sensual, modern style. The straightforward frame and uniquely angled arms of this chair were rediscovered for Espasso’s 2014 launch.
the collection: The Slag Series
the designer: David Taylor
For Taylor, contrasting the raw, haphazard aspect of slag with polished materials such as aluminum and brass brings sophistication to what is essentially an unwanted waste product.
JESSE CARRIER AND MARA MILLER, CARRIER AND COMPANY, INTERIOR DESIGNERS
David Taylor’s work is strong and rugged, but somehow still very pretty. There is a brutalist quality to his pieces. The Slag Series is sculptural, intriguing and daring. Opposites attract. Using a raw material like slag with refined polished metal makes the objects “naturally” less formal and intimidating. Taylor says, “Beauty needs corruption.” We agree! The tension created by variety is dynamic and interesting. Lighten up. Something that doesn’t seem too precious works with both the collective conscious and the enjoyment of acquiring a piece. Natural materials that stand the test of time are always a good investment. What is luxury? Quality and uniqueness: paying attention to methods of fabrication and design philosophies. The devil’s in the details. We tend to diverge on the details—size of an area rug, window treatment style; we’ve learned to give and take, and trust our instincts (even if we have to defend them!). Anything new? We are working on a book to be released in fall 2015. It’s a real privilege to reflect on what we do and why we do it.
TODD NICKEY AND AMY KEHOE, NICKEY KEHOE, INTERIOR DESIGNERS
Brian Gennett is creating something artful that is also completely useful. In 3 words, these trays are: Cubist, primary and graphic. One-of-a-kind: In a world of big-box stores, it’s refreshing to find something handmade, especially using vintage materials. Gennett is based in L.A., and the graphic movement of color in these trays feels specific to our stomping grounds. The Fishscale, Angles and Herringbone trays remind us of Italian marble stationery. Back to the books: The bold geometric patterns crafted by the vintage book covers would be an asset to a color story and an impactful addition to any space. Let it go. Today we are all overexposed to what other artists are doing. It is important to not take it all so seriously—let your creativity unfold without restraint. Todd tends to be a less-is-more guy. Amy takes more risks when it comes to color. What’s next for Nickey Kehoe? A new chapter in our furniture collection.

BALANCE the piece:
Balance LED Task Lamp
the designer: Hubbardton Forge
A company that has spent 40 years crafting metal, Hubbardton Forge uses its distinct techniques to create pieces that celebrate form, material and artistry.
SHEA SOUCIE AND MARTIN HORNER, SOUCIE HORNER, INTERIOR DESIGNERS
We are big fans of Hubbardton Forge. In fact, we used some of their pieces in a private hunting lodge in Wisconsin. Made in America: It’s becoming increasingly rare to find things manufactured domestically, which makes it all the more special when we can source through artisans keeping craft alive in the U.S. As designers we are drawn to the Balance LED Task Lamp’s architecture and scale. It’s all about material. Aged bronze always gives a warm feel and the blend of the two-toned finish adds a dynamic, exciting quality to the piece. It’s reminiscent of a Mies van der Rohe building: balanced, architectural and severe. We love bronze; polished nickel, too. Both are malleable from a fabrication standpoint and can be made in a wide range of color values. We see the Balance lamp on a front entry hall table as a sculptural element. We can always agree on our starting point: finding out how a client wants to live and then deliver. Any news? We are excited about the continued expansion of our SHIIR rug division; we just opened our ninth showroom.
set in the piece: Overlin Console
the designer: Khouri Guzman Bunce Lininger
find it: kgblnyc.com
KGBL created an expertly crafted piece that is unapologetically modern. Carved from a single block of statuary marble, the Overlin console’s stone top is contrasted by a graphically bold base of silicon bronze.
RON WOODSON AND JAIME RUMMERFIELD, WOODSON & RUMMERFIELD’S HOUSE OF DESIGN, INTERIOR DESIGNERS
Our first impression of KGBL: Their work is academic, clean and tailored. The Overlin console is quite elegant yet raw. The softness of the marble combined with the strength of the bronze frame is both dramatic and complementary; both materials are substantial and beautiful in their own right. The clean lines of this piece enhance the form on an architectural level. How would you accessorize the console? With a simple composition of books, a Le Labo candle and a petite bouquet of flowers. We believe good design is always tasteful, timeless and noteworthy. When shopping for a client we lean towards rich tones versus lighter colors. Sturdy and durable materials such as stone and bronze, like in the Overlin console, are a definite go-to. Back in time: This piece belongs in the Bauhaus era. What’s keeping you busy these days? We are working on a grand dame of a structure from a 1940s, old Hollywood style and the client is a wonderful collector of modern art; the juxtaposition is quite inspiring.

SACHIN AND BABI AHLUWALIA, SACHIN + BABI AND ANKASA, DESIGNERS
the collection: Eden and Foliage
the designer: Hella Jongerius for Maharam
find it: maharam.com
Hella Jongerius thoughtfully created a collection inspired by nature. Eden and Foliage balance positive and negative space and play with scale. The positioning of the foliage is elegant without being too highly structured. In perfect harmony: The spacing of the foliage is harmoniously polar, almost melodic.Â You can see movement in the print through the placement of the leaves. At first glance we are inspired by the application of a classic theme to create a modern aesthetic. The use of color blocking and shape gives Eden and Foliage a compelling industrial feel. As in our Spring 2015 RTW collection, this collaboration has a careful and precise utilization of space. Think big. We prefer large-scale patterns and refining the play on big and small shapes to create visually appealing pieces. Go-to inspiration: We have always observed through an anthropological lens the way todayâ€™s woman dresses, as well as lives. We never disagree on what is relevant and fresh on the market.
Jongerius reinvented the traditional botanical with this collection of two woven jacquards: Eden, with its high-contrast plant silhouettes, and Foliage, with its realistic blockprinted leaves, take a modern approach to flora and fauna.

Owner Paul Covello felt a deep yearning to give others the same experience he had growing up in the picturesque city of Woodstock. Opened just last summer in his hometown, Hotel Dylan on Maverick Road does just that. After enlisting the help of designers Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the team designed the hotel in such a way that perfectly pays homage to the area’s rich history. An oversized Michael De Feo flower installation greets guests on the façade of the hotel, while inside, each room highlights a great musician from the era through photographs by Elliott Landy. Tucked away right outside the heart of the town, take yourself back to a time when it was all about peace, love and music. thehoteldylan.com

Exposed brick walls, emerald-hued draperies and crystal chandeliers set the tone in the new addition to Tribeca’s restaurant scene: White Street. Once an armory, the sophisticated space was refreshed by Nella Vetrina, who gave it a modern take on old-school New York. Chef Floyd Cardoz and his team serve up mouthwatering plates such as braised-beef short ribs, which pairs well with the signature drink Garland, a refreshing take on the vodka gimlet. whitestreetnyc.com

Chef Bill Taibe is Connecticut’s pioneer in the farm-to-table concept—a true artisan when it comes to food. I get a craving for the fried chicken sandwich at his restaurant, The Whelk in Westport. I don’t know what they do with the chicken, but it’s really delicious and is paired with pimento cheese, bread-andbutter pickles and cabbage slaw. My dear friend designed the interior, which feels as if you’re sitting in someone’s kitchen near the beach—it’s light and airy yet still homey. thewhelkwestport.com
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM
The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield hosts a contemporary cocktail party on the first Friday of every month. It never seems to work out with my schedule, but it’s on my to-do list to attend. The event seems like an easy way to sneak in culture, live music and time with friends. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to visit, as I really enjoy the museum and want to support it. aldrichart.org
The Mayflower Grace, in the tranquil town of Washington, is a must for a Connecticut getaway. The quintessential New England-country retreat boasts rooms with a traditional, countryside feel. I recommend staying in Suite 32 in the main house; it has a fireplace and an astonishing balcony view onto the Shakespeare Garden. Plus, the spa is an unexpected oasis and was designed to perfection by the late Randall Ridless. Don’t forget your swimsuit to enjoy the thermal sanctuary—it’s just like the Turkish baths! gracehotels.com/mayflower

The Westport P.A.L. Rink at Longshore sits next to the Long Island Sound, making it a fun place to people watch in the winter. Afterward, you can take a stroll through the village of Southport with its stunning Georgian, Victorian and Federal mansions, once home to sea captains. The streets are still paved with original blue-slate walkways and cobblestones— just like a Norman Rockwell painting. wpalrink.com
My go-to home accessory shop is Bungalow in Westport, owned by Wende Cohen, who has an amazing eye for gathering an inspiring assortment of antiques and home accessories from all over the continent.

They have the greatest collection of pillows, artifacts and accessories. bungalowdecor.com
The Yale campus is a living history of architecture over three centuries old. My favorite building is the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, which is a must-visit around noon. The exterior is constructed of Vermont marble, which becomes translucent at midday when hit by the sun and magically lights up the interior of the building. It’s a very unique and modern setting juxtaposed with stacks of leather-bound books. yale.edu

color blind black and white are stylish staples in the fashion world, and the high-contrast look is now taking the lead in interiors, as well, alongside a few shades of gray and a touch of pink.
This carefully curated selection of carpets appears to be seeing the world in black and white—but through rose-colored glasses—with sleek monochromatic tones punched up by cool pinks, deep fuchsias and graphic patterns. Famed rug purveyor Kyle Bunting plays with the absence of color in his latest collaboration with Austin designer Fern Santini in the hide shown, while Portland-based Kush adds gentle pops of blush and textile queens Serena & Lily stun with a chunky abaca imbued with textured bravado.

global view the strong flavors and influences of the middle east yield to the exotic, and the same can be said of the region’s use of rich, saturated hues.
The deep palettes of the rugs found here, filled with full-bodied sapphires, opulent emeralds and fiery rubies, have us ready for an exploration abroad. Laying the groundwork is Organic Loom’s Turkish Vintage carpet that’s grounded in a rich cerulean yarn and complemented with indigo etching, while Vanderhurd’s Islamic Star evokes a strong sense of history by way of pattern, and Designers Guild’s sumptuous ombres add luster courtesy the Phipps collection fashioned from India-sourced silk.

natural selection finding neutral ground shouldn’t be too difficult down a serene yet expressive path.
There is a certain art to the adage less is more. For starters, this pragmatic compendium of rugs shows that a subdued palette can be as deeply rich and textured as one that is brightly colored. Alexander McQueen’s Monarch Fire for The Rug Company cleverly conveys the whimsy of a butterfly without a literal interpretation, acting as a quiet yet striking backdrop for the composition; Bunny Williams lends her refined taste to Dash & Albert when creating quality jutes that mix with cozy cottons; and Warp & Weft keeps it simple yet luxurious with their next-level silks.

“I genuinely do not remember a day in my life without painting,” says artist Domingo Zapata. “I am lucky to do what I love for a living.” Opposite: Zapata’s painting, A Bullfighter in Cipriani, depicts what he thinks a bullfighter would do if he came to New York: “He would have brunch with his bull at my favorite restaurant,” he says.

techniques,” he says. “By thoroughly studying a 200-year-old painting, I can interpret how it fits into today.” The result is a vibrant piece of art that simultaneously excites with its newness and comforts with its familiarity. This approach to art is perhaps what landed a commission to create a 25-by-10-foot mural for the lobby of the Freedom Tower: The collage-like piece will fashion an American flag created with materials from every state, such as steel from Chicago and sand from the Florida coast. One of the most poignant aspects of this piece is the 50 mirror-like stars that will reflect its voyeurs. “Everyone who stands before this mural is a part of it,” adds Zapata. “We are all united in respect of the tragedy that happened here, but we are also embracing the future.” dzapata.com; 310.745.0989

“I cannot remember a starting point, but art and design have always been in my life, mostly through my mother,” says Rosemary Hallgarten, on how she started her career in textile design. Opposite: As a true world traveler, Hallgarten likes to unwind at the Hotel Unique in São Paulo, Brazil.

For Westport-based textile designer Rosemary Hallgarten, nothing is more beautiful than soothing palettes and natural textures when forming the essence of her design story. “I approach much of what I do like a writer,” says Hallgarten, who launched her namesake brand in 2006. “Just as writers wait for characters to form their story, I wait for visual characters.” Be it luxurious silk and cashmere from Nepal, Brazilian industrial leather, or soft alpaca sourced from trips in Peru, every fiber in her handmade pieces balances
The shimmer on Hallgarten’s metallic-washed linen adds a punch of sophisticated flair to an otherwise subdued yet highly durable fabric.
material integrity with local sustainability. “By paying attention to these nuances, my rugs live and have a soul,” admits the expat, whose mother is also a designer. Whether she’s creating textiles for pillows, throws or her custommade rugs, Hallgarten’s inspirations run deep and are often influenced by her travels to such cities as Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Beirut. Says the designer, “In seeing different combinations of colors and textures and witnessing the way people interact, I get the chance to get out of my framework and only then does my brain begin to move.” rosemaryhallgarten.com; 203.259.1003

Furniture that is both beautiful and functional. My taste is very modern, but I like to mix in items with a personal history. DESIGN ICON:

“I am responsible for giving my clients a home that imparts context and personal style to their collections,” says Richard Mishaan of his design approach. Opposite: One of Mishaan’s trusted sources for contemporary art is the PK Shop at the Paul Kasmin Gallery.

Now, Mishaan is going mainstream with hotel commissions in Miami’s South Beach and his native Cartagena, Colombia. There is little doubt that each project will be filled with pieces from his myriad home product lines and accessories from Homer, his Greenwich Village shop. “It always comes down to democratized good taste, and now there are no excuses for not having a beautifully designed space.” richardmishaan.com; 212.223.7502

What’s your philosophy when it comes to kitchen design? It’s all about comfort for me. A kitchen should feel like a living room with furniture and décor. If you can find one great piece, make it a dresser or armoire and keep all your plates, glasses and linens in there. It mixes things up and keeps your counters clear. This room is so full of character. Nothing is too stiff. I like to make people smile by using quirky things like art with funny sayings, antique pieces and pottery made by local artisans. Art isn’t something you see too often in the kitchen. Art finishes off a space. I have a Damien Hirst in my Santa Monica kitchen; it’s really cheerful. Your best piece doesn’t have to be in the drawing room. What other touches are key to a cozy kitchen? Textiles. Use fabrics or an old quilt thrown over the table. A tablecloth can totally change the mood of a room. Let’s pretend you’re hosting a dinner party. Who’s there and what are you serving? Arianna Huffington, movie producer Art Linson, John Edelman from Design Within Reach, and designers Windsor Smith and Martyn Lawrence Bullard: People who enjoy eating and have a lot to say. And I’d make a simple salmon with warm potato salad and asparagus. Oh, and a wonderful ice cream. And you’re cooking all of this on your AGA stove, of course? I’m a lifelong fan of AGA, and I also represent them in the U.S. I learned to cook on one, as did my boys; it’s a staple in an English kitchen. Radiant heat is really the best way to cook. How do you keep all these elements laid-back yet luxurious? Luxury is in the layering of the art, rugs, fabrics, furniture…you have to treat it all equally. When all those pieces live harmoniously, that’s where the magic is. Go outside of your comfort zone. There’s nothing worse than a boring house; it’s worse than a boring person!
kitchen + Bath
bathing beauty fashioned by designer schuyler samperton for a supermodel with a nomadic spirit, this los angeles bathroom is—much
This bathroom belongs to supermodel Carolyn Murphy. Tell me how the space came together. The house had such great bones, and the previous owners did an amazing job at selecting many of the finishes you see here. All the materials feel like they had a former life. I helped her pull it together. It’s very human and cozy; you just connect with it on an innate level. Carolyn herself is a wanderer, and this space fits that spirit. It’s so perfectly imperfect. That’s what I love about it. It has a patina. The floors are reclaimed, the sink unit has a distressed chalky gray-green finish. Nothing is too sterile. I don’t mind leather that’s scratched or metal that is tarnished. I actually prefer those imperfections. It’s easier to relax in a room that is slightly flawed. That large art piece just draws you in. That is something Carolyn previously owned. The tea-stained background worked so well with the marble and stone throughout. There are also prints on the other side of the tub that are framed with deep-toned mats. They play into the vintage vibe, as do the wild harvested flowers. I love how dramatic they are; it’s opulent yet relaxed. Does that speak to your overall design aesthetic? I have bohemian tendencies, and like layering pieces of more humble origins with those of a fancier pedigree. I love finding unusual things in unusual places. Any recent anecdotes? I found a 22-foot-tall totem pole in Idaho. There was no paint on it, just this beautiful carving. I used it for a lake house in the Sierra Nevadas. When I saw it, I knew it was perfect. Besides a giant totem, what one element ties together a room? That’s tough. I love rugs, though, whether antique or something I find at the flea market; they round out a space. Set the mood: how do you relax? Diptyque has the most unique scents. I’m drawn to their lotions and, of course, their candles. They transport you.

like its owner—equal parts beautiful and relaxed.
Nostalgia reigns supreme throughout this Los Angeles home designed by Schuyler Samperton. In the master bath and powder room, materials whisper of bygone eras and tell the tale of a homeowner seeking a relaxed, soothing lifestyle.
Lakeside Residence, Lakeside MI • NanaWall Aluminum Framed Folding System SL70 and NanaScreen Classic
NanaWall: For All Seasons NanaWall opening glass walls give you the best of both worlds: a beautiful way to visually expand your space when open, and an energy-efficient barrier against the elements when closed. Architect David Raino-Ogden featured NanaWall in his renovation of a Lake Michigan home. “The design required the walls to withstand wind, rain, sleet, and snow common to a northern lakefront setting. After much research, we found NanaWall to be our only choice,” said Raino-Ogden.
NanaWall systems are engineered for use in virtually any conceivable building type and come in a variety of options to match any architectural style.

ask the expert SPEAKING TO YOUR LINE OF WORK, WHAT CONSTITUTES “GOOD DESIGN”? The ability to create good design is a rare gift, and we are fortunate to work with a number of designers who inspire us with the creative solutions they employ. WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? We listen to what each client asks for and, in keeping with our overall aesthetic, curate our collection based on those needs. WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? Most of our brands are family owned; we consider those owners part of the SUITE NY family. Watching their businesses grow through us is one of our biggest joys.
SUITE NY For aficionados of midcentury modern and contemporary furniture design, the brilliantly curated collection inside SUITE NY’s 8,000-squarefoot showroom is, in and of itself, an irresistible draw. But the ever-expanding allure of the company launched by Kris Fuchs and Maria Sepulveda in 2006 also speaks to intangibles beyond its 30-plus lines of sophisticated furnishings. Best friends for more than three decades, the former college roommates infuse their business with unmistakable warmth and enthusiasm that not only lights up the showroom in New York’s NoMad district but also funnels into SUITE NY’s superior level of online and in-person customer service. “From the moment a client steps into our showroom or picks up the phone, our experienced sales associates manage finish selection, accurate ordering, tracking, shipment, receiving, inspection and, finally, white-glove assembly and installation,” Fuchs says. “Only when all these points have been executed flawlessly, and the client is happy, do we consider a project a success.” It’s no wonder that, in addition to its roster of discerning domestic and international residential clients, SUITE NY maintains corporate partnerships with the likes of W Hotels and American Express, for which it is furnishing VIP airport lounges. Fuchs and Sepulveda work closely with award-winning creative director Chris Kraig to keep SUITE NY on the cutting edge of jaw-dropping furnishings, lighting and home accessories, drawing on renowned as well as up-and-coming international designers.

WEBSITE barbarabellinteriors.com BARBARA BELL OWNER
BARBARA BELL INTERIORS More than two decades into an award-winning career that has firmly established her brand as a go-to source for inspired interior design in the Tri-State Area, Barbara Bell easily could rest on her laurels. Instead, the founder of Barbara Bell Interiors continues to expand her design knowledge and influences—from ideas acquired on trips to Africa and the Middle East to mixing contemporary design with classic. “We do have some hallmark signatures, such as our work with color, usable and comfortable spaces and the incorporation of lots of art,” says Bell, whose firm has participated in five major show houses in Westchester and Connecticut. “But mostly, our projects are an expression of the client’s personality and their interests.” To that end, an enduring appeal of Barbara Bell Interiors is its ability to bring any desired style to fruition, whether revamping the spaces inside a converted barn in the affluent village of Irvington or an ultra-modern penthouse in Manhattan. The firm’s history of not only rising to an occasion but exceeding expectations was personified in the American Dream Home for which it served as the lead design team, working with 23 sponsors to turn a 5,400-square-foot penthouse at RitzCarlton Towers in White Plains into a luxury masterpiece. “We strive to create spaces that are beautiful, that work well—and that elevate the client’s everyday experience,” Bell says.

HOW DO YOU DEFINE A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT? As the project progresses and family members begin to see what I have envisioned for them, they become excited and anxious to have such a detailed and personalized space. WHAT DO YOU REGARD AS THE GREATEST SUCCESS IN YOUR CAREER TO DATE? In 2011-2012, we designed and built an outdoor kitchen/backyard oasis that appeared on the DIY Network; in 2008 and 2010, I received national awards for residential outdoor lighting. WHAT IS INSPIRING YOU NOW? Our Outdoor Kitchen Design Store, opening in March, promises outdoor cabinetry, appliances, fire features—and much more. It will inspire people to live beyond the walls of their home.
THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN DESIGN STORE BY PREFERRED PROPERTIES The difference between outdoor living and living outdoors fabulously begins with a great design and ends with meticulous workmanship. This rewarding type of lifestyle leads the discerning family to live beyond the walls of their own home outdoors, elevating family time and enjoying quality time in life. This is how Michael Gotowala, designer and founder of The Outdoor Kitchen Design Store by Preferred Properties, illustrates his creative vision of luxury lifestyles and living outdoors. The secret of the company’s success is to understand the personalities of all family members and mimic their familiar indoor lifestyles outdoors. Whether for large, catered gatherings or an intimate, outdoor kitchen for family and friends, Gotowala’s creative vision can make entertaining beyond the walls of the home possible for any occasion. Three decades into its run as one of the region’s premier outdoor living designers and outdoor kitchen builders, Gotowala and the award-winning team at Preferred Properties continue to exceed client expectations. “Our masons are adept at building stone up to the second floor for stability and accenting stone islands that protrude through a weatherproof ceiling,” Gotowala says. “This creates the potential for stone fireplaces, stone bars and stone kitchen islands ‘floating in the air’ on the second floor—and a covered lower level for outdoor dining and conversation.”
The impact of a dramatic outdoor fireplace and its potential to anchor a space is evident in this poolside layout by fabulous outdoor living designer Michael Gotowala.
Cooking outdoors isn’t just about grilling. Look no further than this high-end Evo, one of the many items available on Preferred Properties’ website, where great outdoor kitchen ideas begin.

“The difference between outdoor living and living outdoors fabulously begins with a fabulous design and ends with meticulous workmanship.” –michael gotowala, founder
Gotowala’s award-winning talent as an outdoor lighting designer brings landscapes and hardscapes out of the dark with innovative, artistic and visually striking elements.
This sprawling outdoor oasis perfectly demonstrates Preferred Properties’ expertise at designing functional, multilevel outdoor kitchens and pools as well as living room and great room spaces.

ask the expert WHAT DO YOU STRIVE TO CREATE WHEN YOU’RE WORKING ON A PROJECT? We strive to create beautifully designed, wellbuilt homes that reflect the collaboration between client and architect, while incorporating the site and environment. WHAT ARE THE KEY INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK TODAY? One of our favorite architects is Sir Edwin Lutyens, whose imaginative ideas continue to inspire us. We have great respect for all architects who execute their ideas flawlessly, regardless of style. WHAT DO YOU REGARD AS THE GREATEST SUCCESS IN YOUR CAREER TO DATE? We value the ability to produce great architecture in an increasingly regulated world. Our homes create places of refuge and comfort, apart from the bustle of everyday life.
SHOPE RENO WHARTON ASSOCIATES It’s one thing, architecturally, to pay homage to historical precedent in design. It’s quite another to seamlessly fuse a variety of those influences into expressions so powerful, so honest, that the work takes on its own sense of permanence. Such is the melting-pot approach to American architecture at Shope Reno Wharton Associates, which infuses a traditional sensibility into modern residential and commercial masterpieces that blend naturally into their environments. The results—in projects as diverse as a rustic house in Aspen, an island estate in Rhode Island and a sprawling equestrian property in New Jersey—have distinguished the Connecticut-based firm as a true original, one capable of enriching the daily experience for its high-end clients. To that end, Shope Reno Wharton brings a collaborative approach to its award-winning projects, providing clients with direct communication throughout the process and drawing inspiration from their needs and personality. “While there is always a single partner who leads each project from beginning to end, the design reflects the input of many,” the partners agree.
“Each project reveals our firm’s creativity, as well as unending attention to sculptural form that’s memorable but reflective of today’s lifestyle.” –ARTHUR HANLON, PARTNER
Located in Dutchess County, New York, this rustic stone and timber residence overlooks an equestrian center on 500 acres of rolling hills.
Dramatic volumes and creative use of traditional materials create a unique home.

STEVEN HARRIS PRINCIPAL
STEVEN HARRIS ARCHITECTS Of the countless elements that distinguish the thoughtfully conceived, exquisitely rendered high-end residential projects at Steven Harris Architects, perhaps none speaks to the spirit of the award-winning firm like its ability to connect. To its discerning clients. To locations that span the globe, from New York to South Africa. Even to the surrounding spaces that ultimately complement a freestanding building. Part of that connectivity is inherent to a company, launched in 1985, that encompasses interior and landscape design, as well, under the Rees Roberts + Partners banner. But it’s also a testament to the uncanny ability of Harris—who’s taught architecture at Yale for the better part of three decades—to collaborate with clients in a way that leads to seamless integration, no matter the scope and complexities of the project. “They all look very different; it’s a function of the location and the owner and how they live,” Harris says. “Our goal is to make what we do seem completely effortless and inevitable.”

KELLIE BURKE INTERIORS Without her clients, Kellie Burke likes to say, she would be just another interior designer looking for work. But ask those same longtime clients, and they’ll tell you that without Burke’s uncanny eye for seeing the unique potential in a space, their luxury homes wouldn’t possess the “wow” factor for which the firm that bears her name is known. That is one of the many gifts that the former studio artist has delivered to her high-end clientele since launching Kellie Burke Interiors in 1995. Playing off one of the firm’s core philosophies—that a home should have a well-traveled aesthetic as opposed to a matching, store-bought look—Burke and her award-winning team are at their best when collaborating on a creative journey with clients. “I go for the, ‘Where did you ever find that?’ effect,” says Burke, who leans toward old-world style with modern, functional accents. “Clean lines are great for chic, but the ‘wow’ is found in an oversized corbel carved in mahogany.”
“I try to push the limits of my clients and allow their personal style to go a bit over-the-top.” –kellie burke, founder and designer
Traditional and contemporary interior elements find seamless harmony in this chic living room space that brings touches of color to complement an otherwise black and white motif.

hen a globetrotting couple from Russia decided to put down roots in Greenwich, Connecticut, they looked to interior designer Inson Wood to help them select furnishings
for their recently constructed Georgian-style Colonial brick mansion. A kindred spirit of sorts, Wood is also an art dealer and travel connoisseur, whose eclectic approach to design reflects his multicultural background of residing in far-flung locales around the world. “In an ideal world, these clients would have been moving into an old baronial mansion,” Wood says. “Because there are none in Connecticut, we created our own.” To create more of an old-world feel, Wood appointed the interiors with classic materials such as tumbled Botticino marble floors in the entry foyer and white Chesney’s marble for several of the home’s seven fireplaces. In an intimate library adjacent to the front entry, the designer created the feeling of a centuries-old enclave by incorporating oak wall

paneling distressed with a wire brush and cerused French white-oak flooring laid in a herringbone pattern. Flanking a leather Chesterfield sofa is a pair of bronze lamps with a hammered finish. “What I’m trying to cultivate is a hand-warped and natural feel to the entire project, so that nothing feels brand-new,” Wood explains. “Every material has a very interesting texture. There are almost no flat or smooth surfaces.” Even the Venetian plaster used on the walls in the center reception area has been hand-waxed and formulated with gold dust. “It’s a shimmer that can you can barely see, but it adds warmth to the white walls,” Wood explains. “The effect is fancy and elaborate yet also very subtle.” Columns distinguish the reception area from the open dining and

about,” Wood explains. Although the designer took a more European approach to the project, he furnished the home with an eclectic mix of furnishings from different regions and eras. In the dining room, for example, modern artwork and simple Swedish furnishings complement the comfortable contemporary pieces and neutral palette that Wood selected for the adjacent living area. For the more intimate spaces, he added colorful antique rugs and commingled ornate French and Russian furnishings luxe interiors
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 279
with pieces from the owners’ existing collection. “The way that I design and live is very eclectic,” Wood explains. “Many times we create these historical mansions to be period-perfect, when in reality, they would have included pieces from many different countries.” Indeed, in an elegant sitting room with gilded moldings and crystal chandeliers that were inspired by Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon, Wood placed a Buddha head atop an antique Biedermeier desk. On the other end of the spectrum is the husband’s office, where the designer incorporated African masks and trophies from the husband’s safaris

In the kitchen, brass pendants illuminate an island that was painted gray to distinguish it from the white cabinetry on the perimeter. Hand-painted Marlborough tiles line the backsplash and complement the Kashmir white granite countertops. The range is by La Cornue.
An intricate glass chandelier creates an elegant feeling in the breakfast area without interfering with the natural light or the views of the exterior. Cerused-oak flooring complements the Swedish table and chairs.
A large manicured lawn landscaped with shrubs along the perimeter decorates the rear entrance of the palatial estate, which sits on 4 acres of land and includes a heated swimming pool and a tennis court. The home is an ideal place for large-scale entertaining and intimate gatherings of friends and family.
In the powder room, a floral tone-on-tone wallcovering from Harlequinâ€™s Juniper collection, purchased through Zoffany, establishes a warm palette that complements the cream linen draperies from Curtainworks and the upholstery on a late 18th-century Swedish Gustavian sleeping bench from Dawn Hill Antiques.

A large bay window in the master bedroom frames the picturesque view of the manicured grounds and provides space for a pair of plush antique chairs. Underneath the bed is a Persian rug from Lillian August that helps to create a quiet sophistication in the room.
Although Wood often finds himself educating his clients about the provenance of certain pieces, such explanations were not necessary in this case. “They both have very good taste,” he explains. “We discussed every little detail, and every decision was reached by consensus. They are an international family who have traveled widely and experienced many different cultures, and that is what is represented in the design of their home.” L

tudy nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” Of all the lessons the late architect Edgar A. Tafel learned from his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright, this was likely the one that resounded most clearly the day he found
himself standing on a rocky 3.7-acre plot in the Hudson Valley. With sweeping views of the Hudson River estuary and a lush, vibrant hillside, the site demanded a home that would bow to its surrounding natural beauty while making a powerful statement of its own. It was a challenge that Tafel—who had been by Wright’s side during the construction of the legendary Fallingwater—was uniquely qualified to undertake. The structure he designed for this magical place has all the markings of a Taliesin-approved home: expertly executed cantilevers, large expanses of glass and a painstakingly selected material palette that allows the house to blend seamlessly with the breathtaking setting. The result is a timeless architectural jewel box that holds the same appeal today as it did upon its completion in 1948—something its current homeowner is happy to attest to.

Landscape architect Burton DeMarche used the homeâ€™s lush setting as an extension of the architectureâ€™s clever cantilevering, building terraced patios into the property to provide different levels for optimal viewing of the Hudson River beyond the free-form pool.
DeMarche paid close attention to the selection of materials when crafting his plan for the landscaping, opting to build terraces and retaining walls with natural stone that closely resembles the materials used for the foundation and on walls throughout the homeâ€™s interiors.

“I knew the house was ‘the one’ the moment I saw it,” he says. “I’d never experienced anything quite like it.” He was so smitten, in fact, that it wasn’t until he got a visit from interior designers and sisters Jayne Michaels and Joan Michaels about 10 years after
A Moroccan rug from Doris Leslie Blau sets the tone for the screened-in porch, where the rich hues of the vintage leather sofa and Jacaranda coffee table by Percival Lafer, both from Weinberg Modern, and Pierre Chapo-style chairs from Magen H.

purchasing the home that he realized something was missing. “He’s a brilliant, sophisticated man,” says Jayne. “He recognizes quality and has a great eye, but he needed some help pulling the interiors together.” After the three bonded over their mutual love for the movie North by Northwest—known for its stunning sets that took their cues from Wright’s designs—they decided to work together to craft a plan for outfitting the home that would echo its inspiring architecture.
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 293
While the Michaelses were able to use much of what the homeowner had collected through the years, from contemporary art to important midcentury pieces, there were still plenty of spots to fill. In the living room, for example, the homeowner’s prized Vladimir Kagan Serpentine sofa looked a little lonely before the designers paired it with a set of handsome Swedish leather chairs from the 1940s and a regal Børge Mogensen wingchair. “We developed a great back-and-forth dialogue about what worked in the home,” says Joan, “and we all responded mostly to items that came to us from our antiques dealer friends—these very unique, slightly rustic pieces with character. We didn’t want to bring in a lot of shiny, new things. We felt as if the house was speaking to us, and we wanted to answer accordingly.” So, from the dining room’s solid pine Swedish chairs from the 1930s to the slinky midcentury lines of the bed in the master to the well-loved Laverne Tulip chairs in the guesthouse, as well

To complement the homeownerâ€™s dining table, the designers found a set of beautifully crafted Swedish chairs designed by Axel Einar Hjorth in the 1930s. The artwork, titled Angled Ring, is by Robert Mangold; the vintage rug is from Doris Leslie Blau; and the Swedish vase is from Weinberg Modern.
“We Wanted their eyes to go right outside, to be reminded of What a special place they’re in.”
296 l u x e i n t e r i o r s
The design team made every effort to defer to the vistas wherever possible—and it’s easy to see why. One particularly magical view, according to the owner, is from the pool itself, where he can look out over the treetops to the unrestricted panorama of the Hudson when he’s standing in the shallow end.
An untitled black-and-white artwork from prolific rug and textile designer Madeline Weinrib—a friend of the homeowner’s—hangs over the fireplace in the guesthouse and echoes the palette on the sculptural Tulip chairs by Erwine and Estelle Laverne. Two coffee tables from the homeowner’s collection lend a casual feel to the space. A vintage Märta Måås-Fjetterström tapestry rug from Doris Leslie Blau drapes the sofa.
DeMarche took his responsibilities to the home and its surrounding environment seriously, preserving the site’s delicate ecosystem at every turn. “We wanted a plan that would resonate, both visually and ecologically, with the beauty of the regional landscape,” he says. c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 294
as the incredible array of vintage Swedish and Moroccan flat-weave rugs throughout, they used well-loved furnishings and accessories to imbue the home with style as classic and ageless as its architecture. For all the thoughtful consideration given to the interiors, however, the designers were careful never to upstage the real star of the show: the majestic vistas right outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. “We kept everything low and sparse very purposefully,” says Jayne. “When someone walks in, we want their eyes to go right past the furniture to the outside, so that they can instantly be reminded of what a special place they’re in.”
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 299
In addition to the gentle waters of the Hudson visible as far as the eye can see, the delicate landscape designed by Burton DeMarche— which features terraced stone patios, indigenous plantings and a free-form pool with a small outlet waterfall—is just as breathtaking. “Our approach was to play off the native site elements: Natural ledge outcroppings were preserved and given prominence within the composition, and granite boulders removed during excavation were repurposed to retain slopes and add sculptural value to the hillside gardens. Stone slab steps and granite paving were also locally sourced to retain the site’s native artistic integrity.” All of this provides the illusion that the home’s surroundings have been virtually untouched. It’s this purity that the homeowner finds himself responding to again and again: a fact that is supported not only by the simple way he lives when he’s visiting for the weekend, but also by the art that adorns the walls of his midcentury abode. “When I first moved in I had a lot of really lovely, powerful Expressionist pieces,” he says, “but I’ve evolved. Minimalist, conceptual art resonates much better with the tonality of the place, its architecture, landscape and interior design, and I want to honor that for as long as I’m here.” L

In the master bedroom, the designers selected a low-slung vintage Danish bed for better access to the views, and a Marianne Richter Swedish flat-weave from Doris Leslie Blau.

n the 1957 Audrey Hepburn movie musical Funny Face, an eccentric fashion editor, brought to life by the inimitable Kay Thompson, admonished her staff to “Think pink! Everything that you can think, and that includes the kitchen sink.” But this is not a color
met with abandon by most designers, especially when the shade in question is a particularly bright shade of fuchsia. Nevertheless, that was the color requested by designer Ernest de la Torre’s client, a mother and grandmother in her 70s who had been living at The Plaza Hotel for three years and wanted to move to SoHo to be closer to her son and grandchildren. “I was only going to put pink on the sofas,” de la Torre recalls, “but she wanted the color everywhere. She said it made her happy.” Rather than resist, de la Torre embraced it. “Why not,” he adds. “I’d never done an all-pink apartment before.”
304 l u x e i n t e r i o r s
Chairs in the sitting area are covered in a chocolate kidskin by Keleen Leathers. The custom coffee table was conceived by designer Ernest de la Torre and uses hand-dyed straw marquetry to get its plaid effect. Left: For one side of the living room, de la Torre designed a nailhead-trimmed console in red horsehair from John Rosselli & Associates and hung an elaborately baroque-style shell mirror acquired from Drake.
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 304
Recognizing that the palette could quickly become overwhelming, de la Torre gave it a more balanced context by mixing in “elements of subdued fantasy and rawness.” In this case, fantasy skewed toward nature-inspired elements taken from Asian and Indian cultures, where, says de la Torre, “pink is pervasive.” Rawness refers to the industrial origins of the building, originally designed by Cleverdon and Putzel in 1895. Not conceived for residential use, it had begun life as an apparel and hat manufactory and, prior to its 1990s apartment conversion, had housed offices. Because of this, the space lacked the symmetry that is essential to classical proportion and grace, which impart livability to so many homes. With that in mind, the design team had to build the symmetry in. Builders Steven Scordio and Anthony Scordio were charged with executing that symmetry within the existing plan. They did so by mirroring the centruy-old architectural elements. For example, sleeping 306 l u x e i n t e r i o r s
De la Torre softened the existing stainless-steel kitchen with organic elements such as the trio of custom pendants covered in a deep beige Clarence House horsehair and 1970s teak barstools from Drake. New lacquered-wood cabinetry by Scordio Construction updates the space, giving it a more crisp, streamlined feel.
Grounding the casual breakfast nook just off the sitting area is a vintage horn-inlay Karl Springer game table surrounded by four custom cerused-oak chairs covered in a pink floral embroidered silk by Manuel Canovas. An 18th-century embroidered Chinese panel hangs on the wall.

quarters for the grandchildren featured a wall flanked by openings at both sides that infelicitously looked into a closet and bathroom. “I suggested surrounding it with a steel-and-glass wall,” says de la Torre of this raw, industrial part of the space. The move closed off those spaces while providing access to the door on one side. The opposite side emulates that doorway but doesn’t open into either space. But, as Steven Scordio admits, achieving that kind of radius, so that everything had symmetry and would be in proportion, was somewhat of a challenge. Designed by architect Edward Siegel, the library is another departure from the home’s loft-like character. Siegel ornamented it with egg-anddart cornices and moldings and Corinthian columns that are seemingly 310 l u x e i n t e r i o r s
In the boysâ€™ room, custom steel windows from A&S Window Associates hide a closet and bath. Below the round vintage Ralph Lauren mirror, Anthony Lawrence-Belfair fabricated the custom trundle daybeds in a durable Stark vinyl, accessorized with John Robshaw pillows. The lamp in the corner is vintage Gordon Martz purchased through Drake.
A Sabina Fay Braxton washed silk-velvet was upholstered on the walls and on the headboard in the master bedroom and is broken up by metallic linen draperies made by Lauren Hwang. The metallic bedding is from Frette, and the silver parchment-wrapped nightstand was custom designed by de la Torre.
On the opposite wall of the master bedroom, an oversize Vladimir Kagan wood-and-glass console from Todd Merrill sits under a vintage Sergio Bustamante hammered-brass angel wings mirror. The lamp is a vintage cloisonné purchased through 1stdibs. c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 310
more at home in a Park Avenue pre-war apartment. “It becomes a neoclassical set piece in this modern building, which has very tall ceilings, exposed beams and electrical conduits,” Siegel says. The library is also one of the more personal spaces in the home offering a casual and comfortable space to read and be surrounded by things the client loves. Built-in bookshelves not only store books but provide ample space to house a curated collection of Asian-influenced pottery, vintage collectibles and black-and-white family photographs. The personal touches help bring the lofty space back to down to size. In the master bedroom, pink utterly evaporates, and is swathed in teal: the client’s “other favorite color.” But elsewhere it is clear—in a way that would have pleased Kay Thompson’s character—that de la Torre was able to “think pink” from a new, thoroughly modern perspective.

Arts and Crafts-style architecture while also transforming the dark interiors into a light and airy contemporary space. Enter designer Kati Curtis, who was called upon to do just that—and she pulled it off without moving a single wall. Because the owners—he’s in finance and she’s a stay-at-home mom to their two young children—were satisfied with the home’s overall layout, they wanted the original architecture to remain intact. However, when it came to the dated kitchen and five bathrooms, they knew they had a gut renovation on their hands: The kitchen received new clean-lined

The sunken family room, where the homeowners spend most of their time, contains 12-foot-high ceilings. To allow a clear view to the river when seated, designer Kati Curtis made sure the contemporary sofas from Cisco Brothers and a cream chair and ottoman from McGuire were no higher than the bottoms of the windows.
A patterned Donegal wool carpet from Stark grounds the family room and recalls the Arts and Crafts era of a century ago that inspired the original architecture of the house. The natural variation in the wood of the Clubcu walnut coffee table hides spills, while its organic shape allows easy access from any angle.

white cabinetry to replace the dark wood, as well as two new Caesarstone-topped islands; a clawfoot soaking tub was added to the master bath in front of the window to take in river views. From the outset, the designer had to work with spatial and proportion issues. As was common in construction a couple of decades ago, the house boasted plenty of architectural bells and whistles, such as dormers and oddly formed spaces, including two octagonal-shaped roomsâ€”one downstairs and one upstairs. â€œTypically, Craftsman-style homes have
In the bay-windowed sunroom off the family room, a demilune sofa, a pair of rattan chairs and a modern coffee table are all from McGuire. An onyx-based lamp from Arteriors, and a white metal sconce and trio of pendants from The Urban Electric Co. contribute to the casual vibe.

9-foot-high ceilings,” she adds. “This house had very high ceilings, so we needed to bring things down to a more human scale without making any architectural changes whatsoever.” The house was steeped in deep earth tones, so light and bright became the watchwords. “The woodwork
Only the Viking stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator were retained from the formerly dark-paneled kitchen. New all-white cabinetry—designed by Curtis and Canyon Creek Cabinet Company—along with two wenge-wood islands topped with white Caesarstone brighten the functional space. The sparkling backsplash is by New Ravenna Mosaics.
was beautiful, but it was stained very dark,” Curtis recalls. Everything from the wall panels and stair balusters to moldings and beadboard ceilings was treated to a sweeping whitewash. “The dark wood actually emphasized the home’s lofty proportions,” Curtis says. “Painting all the woodwork white helped combat this effect and offset the scale.” luxe interiors
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 319
The newly whitewashed woodwork and the consistent use of pale grays, taupes and other neutral colors throughout the house went a long way toward establishing a sense of unity and organization. Because her clients were “shy about bright color,” says Curtis, upholstered pieces were covered in pale neutral fabrics. The designer also introduced muted tones of red, green and blue into accent pieces—mere hints of color that nonetheless pop against the understated backdrop. In the formal dining room, Curtis made clever use of Thibaut wallpaper with an overall bird pattern—reminiscent of the lush wallcoverings of the Arts and Crafts era—to also help achieve architectural aims.

Thibaut’s bird-patterned wallpaper helps the long, narrow formal dining room become more intimate. The splayed-leg table and chairs were designed by Curtis for The New Traditionalists. The chair backs are upholstered in an ikat fabric from Kravet and the striking chandelier, with an oil-rubbed bronze finish, is by Jonathan Browning Studios.
The Drexel Heritage hutch in the formal dining room was refurbished to give it more of an antique feel; the pale yellow armchairs are from Cisco Brothers and the wall sconces are from Holly Hunt. Another patterned Donegal rug from Stark runs underfoot.
A custom sofa with a carvedwood frame, one of two by Kati Curtis Design for The New Traditionalists, anchors the more formal living room, which is used for entertaining. Woven shades on the windows let the river views shine through. The elegant marble-and-bronze oval side table is by Global Views.

“The room is long and narrow with a vaulted ceiling,” Curtis says. “The luxurious patterning of the wallpaper counteracts a ‘tunnel effect’ and

distracts from the harsh geometric lines of the ceiling.” The presence of two young children required that nearly everything be easy to clean. Seating in the family living areas, for instance, is covered in outdoor fabric, and in the dining room, the children can color on the stone-topped table without ruining it. The coffee table in the family room, a free-form wood slab with natural variation, was chosen for its durability and spill-resistant material, as well as for its beauty. Patterned Donegal
The spectacular wooden boathouse on the river, primarily used as guest accommodations and for parties, was left completely intact. A graphic blueand-white striped rug packs a visual punch beneath a coffee table, both from Restoration Hardware. The woven-wicker chairs are from Palecek, and the barstools are from Straight from the Crate.
A classic clawfoot soaking tub from Kallista anchors the master bathroom and sits under a window in order to highlight the incredible scenery outside. Calacatta Borghini tiles from Ann Sacks cover the room, and the fixtures are from Rocky Mountain Hardware.
c o n t i n u e d f r o m p a g e 323
wool rugs—like those popular in the early 20th century—can also be found throughout the home and are “beautiful yet practical, as far as hiding stains and dirt,” says Curtis, who also brought in beanbag chairs and a vibrant patchwork carpet from Flor for the attic playroom. “It’s a fun space where we could go crazy.” Now, the home is classic, elegant and serene, while also being supremely suited for family living. Above all, it is flooded with light—an uplifting testament to the magnificent power of pale. L

In the master bedroom, the warm blue Benjamin Moore paint on the walls sets a serene tone and echoes the river views. The bed frame is from Restoration Hardware and the chaise is from Cisco Brothers. Matching side tables from Atelier Delalain hold a pair of lamps from Arteriors.

DREAM Totem I, II & III From $57,500 Lindsey Adelman thefutureperfect.com
L I G H T I N G D E S I G N E R Lindsey Adelman employs her signature cocktail of impactful materials in her recent collection for The Future Perfect. “Totem doesn’t take itself too seriously,” she notes of the unique trio of light sculptures she crafted with friend and master glass artist Nancy Callan. Thoughtfully created and meticulously executed, the shapes of Totem I, II and III are informed by Callan’s renowned sculpture work. “The construction is seemingly simple, like a child’s toy, but with highly crafted, fragile components,” says Adelman. Here, milky-toned glass pieces mingle with shiny brass, wood and porcelain, resulting in a vertical stack of disparate elements. The collection carries with it Adelman’s impeccable skill at flawless construction, but the most delightful and compelling element of Totem may be its blatant playfulness, an extension of the designer’s distinct style.
