Breathing new life into the printed page, creating buildings more sensitive to their context, and moving toward maximalism 6

environments, and interior designers are rediscovering the finer points of magnificent details. Here are the latest trends in art, architecture, and design. ART

Using bound books as their base, artists are creating page-turning sculptures. London-based Claire Brewster transforms atlases from the 1930s to the ’70s into flights of fancy by fashioning light-as-a-feather birds from their pages, allowing them to wing their way over the maps. “I create the birds flat and pin them so they are raised up and have a feeling of movement,” she says. Her works, which are in the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and the Bury Art Gallery in England, sell for US$1,100 to US$20,000. She also produces paintings

that are collaged with images from books and magazines. Jodi Harvey of Colora, Md., takes a literal approach to book art, recreating key scenes of stories in 3-D by breaking the printed pages into basic shapes and sometimes adding special effects like motors and lights. Her Peter Pan has page-paper children soaring over rooftops and her Tom Sawyer shows the boy floating down the Mississippi River on a raft. Her works have been exhibited around the world. ARCHITECTURE

Seamlessly integrating buildings with landscapes has long been a guiding principle of architecture. Now, some architects are taking the tenet further, creating buildings with different sides that reflect each environment they face. “It’s part of a movement to make architecture more sensitive to context, even if the context is only one street

or one block,” says architect Don B. McDonald, whose namesake firm is based in San Antonio. For this reason, McDonald’s award-winning luxury apartment complex in San Antonio, Cellars at the Pearl, is two-faced. Part of a larger cultural and culinary campus with 19th-century roots, the Cellars, an L-shaped, two-winged concrete structure of 200,000 square feet, has a forward-facing classical frontstreet side and an industrial facade along the riverfront, the one-time hub of the city’s commercial district and site of a former warehouse. “Architecture communicates just like books communicate,” McDonald says. “The Cellars at the Pearl is talking to two different audiences, two different communities.” DESIGN

Minimalism has maxed out, and rooms are reveling in the multilayered look.

“Interiors often follow trends in fashion,” says Los Angeles-based interior designer Natasha Baradaran. “Fashion houses like Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana have started to push the limits of patterns, multiple colors, and textures, and my clients are more willing to take risks lately, such as playing with patterns and colors in a single space.” In the master bedroom of one such client, Baradaran paired a purple and white marbleized wallpaper with largescale Venini sconces and contemporary furnishings, and juxtaposed them against a 1970s-style slanted-wood ceiling and wall-to-wall shag carpeting. Designer Kirill Istomin, who has offices in Moscow and New York, says maximalism’s “courageous mix of colors and textures and luxurious finishes, along with great art” allows people “to celebrate their unique personalities with confidence” and “to help tell their story.” 7

The Craftsman Home Evolves The Arts and Crafts movement, which started more than a century ago in England, is often fused with more modern styles


Very modern homes, like this one in Jackson, Wyo., are often inspired by the classic Arts and Crafts style.


he Arts and Crafts movement, which started in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century, has had a lasting impact on home design. Its signature details can be seen in everything from English cottages and California lodges to bungalows and modern coastal architecture. Hallmarks of the style include low-slung roofs, deep eaves, large front porches, exposed beams, and the use of unadorned wood and other materials, according to Christopher Long, who holds the Martin S. Kermacy Centennial Professorship in Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Architecture. Many of those design elements, as well as the quality workmanship and straightforward architecture, are still seen in contemporary homes, says Long, who was also co-curator of The Rise of Everyday Design: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and America, an exhibit earlier this year held at the Henry Ransom Center at the University of Texas. The movement, also called Craftsman, lasted through the first decades of the 20th century, expanding from the U.K. to the U.S. It was a response to the industrial age, when designers, architects, and artisans grew concerned about mass production taking over.

In contrast, Arts and Crafts homes celebrated craftsmanship and handmade elements, Long says. And raw materials aren’t masked or disguised. “There’s a truth in materials,” Long says. “Wood should be shown as wood, metal is metal, and so forth.” Architects like the Greene Brothers, based in California, and Frank Lloyd Wright took up the mantle, spreading the style throughout the U.S., Long says. The movement ended around 1930, but architects and designers today borrow heavily from its key ideas. “Craftsman style gels very well with coastal architecture,” said Nick Phillips of Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty in North Carolina. “There are a lot of similarities in Craftsman and much of the Tidewater architecture that we have in our area. Craftsman features like rafter tails, board and batten, and exposed beams all fit very well with southern coastal architecture.” Phillips also points out that traditional Arts and Crafts elements work well with more modern styles. He is currently marketing a five-bedroom, six-bathroom “modern Craftsman-styled masterpiece” in Wilmington, N.C. “It’s a fusion between modernist architecture and Craftsman,” he says. “You get the clean lines and the minimalist, form-follows-function style from the modernist, but with a warmer and more traditional touch with the addition of Craftsman trim details. The result looks more contemporary than a traditional Craftsman home.” Priced at $2.3 million, the property was renovated in 2016, and features a classic Craftsman silhouette with its pronounced roof lines and front porch. But it also has floor-to-ceiling windows. 10 (3)

This house in North Carolina, shown at left and at top, reflects a more classic style. Shown at bottom, a Jackson, Wyo., home that’s all about light and space.

Inside, the great room has both exposed beams and a bright, updated space. In Mendocino, Calif., exposed beams are a prominent feature of the Brewery Gulch Inn, a lodge represented by Sarah Schoeneman of Mendo Sotheby’s International Realty. She also co-owns the inn with her husband. “It is very much in the Craftsman style, with lots of wood,” Schoeneman says. “But it has a contemporary finish with a gorgeous concrete floor that’s stained—it almost looks like rawhide.” The entire lodge was built from redwood salvaged from the Big River, Schoeneman says. The Craftsman style touched more than just architecture. Lighting, furniture, wallpaper, and other interior design elements all were built with the Arts and Crafts treatment in mind. British designer William Morris, a leader of the

movement, became known for elaborate wallpapers, which are still available. Color choices were inspired by nature, with an emphasis on blues and greens. Paint company Sherwin Williams carries a collection of the historic colors, ranging from Library Pewter to Dard Hunter Green. At the Brewery Gulch Inn, they’ve continued that tradition, with much of the furniture and decor handcrafted by local woodworkers and artists, according to Schoeneman. The inn has 10 guest rooms, plus an additional tworoom suite. The property is listed for just under $4 million. Separately, American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School is closely associated with the Craftsman style, sharing the same attention to quality and handcrafted design. It is known for flat roofs with broad eaves that protect ample outdoor space. A contemporary home in Jackson, Wyo., builds on that concept by combining the horizontal lines of the Prairie School with concrete, glass, and Kota stone, a limestone that comes from the Kota district in India. Wooden beams and window panes, signature Craftsman details, soften the home’s sleek modern lines. Inside, the floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the Teton Range, while the cedar ceilings, built-ins, and wood paneling give the home a cozy, solid feel. The four-bedroom, six-bathroom house is currently listed for $15 million by Brett Frantz of Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty. “All the windows and the glass provide what you want in this setting,” he says, referring to the sweeping views of the mountains. “The drama is nearly unmatched in Jackson Hole.” 11

Hot Springs Around the World 12

From Japan to Chile, spots worth a dip


here are few natural offerings as serenely replenishing as a dip in a hot spring on a cold day. Primitively soothing and therapeutic, it’s no wonder that many cultures across the world and through the centuries have taken to them in one form or another. Japan, Iceland, Russia, Mexico, Ethiopia— all these countries and more boast a long history of humans basking in geothermal pools. Hot springs—simple pools of water, in rock or sand, heated by the natural movements of the earth—remain irresistible, for both pleasure and health, especially when the temperature drops. Here are some of the best springs around the world to dip into.


The Japanese are extremely fond of their onsens, the local term for hot-spring saunas. An onsen tour would be incomplete without a visit to Hokkaido, a mountainous island in 13

the far north, where storied springs are visited by cold macaques in the wintertime—the only monkeys in the world to partake in such pampering. On Hokkaido, check out the fall foliage at Jozankei Hot Springs. Note that swimwear is disallowed in most onsens. In Gunma, a charming town full of hot springs on Honshu island, there is Takaragawa, a charming onsen nestled beside a picturesque brook in the mountains and once a popular haunt for shoguns and samurai. COLORADO

Though hot springs abound across the American West, few states offer as many pristinely beautiful ones as Colorado. At the entirely natural, spring-fed Strawberry Park Hot Springs in Steamboat Springs, the legendary ski town, there is a no-light policy. Bask, then, in their 104-degree mineral water,

within large natural-stone pools surrounded by pines, under a sprawl of clear stars. A small hike through the woods is required. But to really feel off the map, journey to Dunton Hot Springs in Dolores. Its six pools shine red from a skin-pleasing mineral cocktail found in the water, at more than 8,000 feet elevation. NEW MEXICO

Often overlooked, New Mexico also has plenty of hot springs to relax in. Outside the artsy mountain town of Santa Fe, check out San Antonio Hot Springs, about two hours west. Accessible by either a burly vehicle or a five-mile hike, it boasts a series of pools carved along a hillside in the stunning San Diego Canyon. In the southern half of the state is the charming Jordan Hot Springs, located in the Gila National Forest. These little pools in the woods are not far from

the Gila Cliff Dwellings, a collection of stone dwellings constructed by ancient nomadic tribes. ICELAND

Like Japan, Iceland—another highly geothermal, geologically complex country—boasts a world-class hotsprings culture. Make time for the Blue Lagoon, near Grindavík, a much-visited but spectacular bright sky-blue pool in the middle of coal-black lava fields (it also features a restaurant and a swim-up bar, along with its own skin-care line). For something more low-key, try the Secret Lagoon in Fludir, a lesser-known spot that features an active geyser. The springs at Landmannalaugar (say that five times fast), located inside Fjallabak Nature Reserve, in the southern Highlands, is another popular spring, offering breathtaking views of psychedelic mountains.

Another geothermal mountainous country, Chile abounds with springs. At the remote Termas de Banos Colina springs, at the foot of the San Jose volcano near the Argentine border outside BaĂąos Morales, are several pools overlooking snow-capped peaks. At such a chilly height, the steaming water will be much appreciated. Then, like something out of a fantasy novel, is Termas Geometricas, a Japanese-inspired hot-spring resort located within a fantastically lush canyon rainforest in Villarrica National Park, dense with fog. Cherry-red walkways suspended over a stream lead to 17 pools, each with its own changing hut. Termas Laguna Verde, located near the highest active volcano on earth, Ojos del Salado, is rustic but unforgettable. 15

Milk Paint Endures

The simple, all- natural formula dates back to ancient Egypt, and is having a resurgence 16

makes every grain and beautiful imperfection come to life. One of the oldest forms of paint, milk paint dates back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, where it decorated pyramids and cave dwellings. The simple, all-natural formula, as its name suggests, is made from milk protein and a combination of lime, earth pigments, and clay. When mixed with water, these ingredients make a liquid paint that can be used for a variety of applications. “Up until about the mid-1800s, paint wasn’t available to buy commercially, so people had to make their own formulas with what they had readily available,” says Sausha Khoundet, founder of Sweet Pickins Milk Paint and now owner of Old Fashioned Milk Paint based in Tooele, Utah. “Early American colonists and Shakers used milk paint to coat their furniture and interiors—and many of these pieces still look as good today, if not better,” Khoundet says. “Milk paint gets better with age.”

While often prized on antique pieces, milk paint is having a resurgence in popularity today, in part because it’s completely natural. “The formula is environmentally friendly and has no VOCs [volatile organic compounds] or harsh chemicals, and people are gravitating toward products that are all natural and safe,” says Amy Howard, CEO of Amy Howard Home, a line of furniture-refinishing products based in Memphis, Tenn. There’s also a trend toward a casual, lived-in farmhouse style. “Creating a perfect, ‘chippy’ worn finish with milk paint is the easiest way to get there,” Khoundet says, noting that customers buy her company’s original milk paint formula to recreate authentic period looks in historic homes, particularly for cabinets and furniture, as well as decks, sheds, and outdoor pieces. In addition, more people are picking up a brush because there are so many easy ways to do it yourself. “Milk paint can be used almost anywhere modern paints can be used,” says DIY expert Marian Parsons, founder of Mustard Seed Interiors and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Rochester, Minn. “What it does best is soak into raw wood like a stain, but it also provides the coverage of a paint. Additionally, it can be utilized as a wash to get beautiful, authentic-looking aged effects on furniture, cabinets, walls, and floors.” Parsons explains that when milk paint is brushed over an existing finish without first sanding the surface, it doesn’t adhere completely and flakes away, giving it that signature vintage look. “This creates the illusion of old, chipping paint that looks like it could’ve been original to the piece,” Parsons says. “We have seen artisans create striking effects with milk paint using layering techniques as well,” she says. “This paint can do things that most modern paints can’t.” The formula also has the benefit of longevity. “It has an indefinite shelf life when it’s stored in powdered form, which means it won’t corrode over time,” Parsons says. Howard, whose company currently has 14 shades of milk paint based on pigments sourced from quarries in the South of France (when the quarry runs out, so does that specific shade), prizes the substance for its patina. “Milk paint has depth of color and a great deal of authenticity that evokes the feeling of time,” she says. And because the paint comes in a powder form, you can control how thick or thin you want it to be by the amount of water you add. Working with it is easy: Simply apply with a brush or sprayer, lightly sand to smooth out the surface after it’s dry for a buttery finish, and then coat with a sealant such as wax, Khoundet says. “It’s completely user friendly.” While the paint tends to feel thinner than mixed paints purchased in a can, which can take some getting used to, Parsons notes, “the advantage of the thinner consistency is that it’s quick-drying and very forgiving when it comes to brushstrokes and drips.” 17

An Enlightened Style Louis Sarkozy creates a loafer collection that blends utility with a tribute to creative thinking 18

Somewhat accidentally, Louis Sarkozy has entered the fashion business.

ouis Sarkozy is no fashion aficionado. In fact, he says, he and fashion industry insider Pablo LGómez-Lechón were recently denied entry into a “rather

fancy hotel” in Barcelona “because I’ve worn the same sneakers for the past three weeks. I’m much more of a utilitarian when it comes to what I wear,” Sarkozy says. “It’s about comfort, utility, and simplicity.” And certainly, the 22-year-old son of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy never dreamed of entering the fashion business. But when Gómez-Lechón, who’s the founding partner of the Spanish loafer boutique Boonper, reached out to Sarkozy on social media about advertising a pair of shoes on his Instagram page, the two teamed up and created Boonper’s Enigma collection. Sarkozy, who studied philosophy and history at New York University, originally had the idea to create a line of accessories that would stylishly and discreetly honor the great intellectuals of the past, from scientists to writers. When he saw the quality and comfort Boonper provided, and the versatility of driving shoes—which suit his utilitarian style—he thought it the perfect fit. “There’s room to grow, there’s room to be creative, and there’s room to tell stories, as long as it’s subtle,” he says. “It’s called the ‘Enigma Collection’ because in an ideal world, you pick up the shoes, and you get to the very symbols, colors, designs, and fabrics of who the shoes are referencing.” The Enigma Collection’s first line, which launched this past spring, features four styles, each paying homage to a historically significant figure: Marie Curie, Sigmund Freud, William Shakespeare, and Thomas Jefferson. “They’re famous enough to be recognized by all, but also specified in different academic fields,” Sarkozy says, which is why he pitched these four, among a few others, to Gómez-Lechón and Boonper’s other founding partner, Victoria Falomir. Sarkozy says he enjoyed dissecting the work and lives of the four thinkers who inspired the first line of the Enigma Collection. “For example, to consume the enormous work of Madame Curie in two or three eloquent and discrete symbols, it’s a fun mission,” he says. For the “Curie” shoe, Sarkozy and his team landed on an imprint from Curie’s journal entry from the day she isolated radium and a radioactive symbol. The “Sigmund” moccasin sports a dreamcatcher, while the “TJ” pays tribute to the 13 original colonies. The “William” is inscribed with Romeo’s famous final line from Romeo and Juliet.

The handmade leather loafers also diverge from other designer shoes when it comes to price—the four styles range from US$330 to US$365, while most high-end loafers run between US$500 and US$700. The collection is sold internationally online and will soon hit its first storefront at a retailer in Paris. To model the shoes, Sarkozy and his team worked with photographer and the New Yorker journalist Nicolas Niarchos, who paired each style with a modern version of its past intellectual. For example, New York architect Robert A. M. Stern modeled the Jefferson-inspired loafer, and Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker was photographed in the Sigmund. Boonper plans to expand the collection to women’s shoes and other men’s styles in the coming seasons, and Sarkozy—who says his first foray into the world of fashion has been “tremendously fun”—sees the potential for the collection to expand into other accessories, such as belts and wallets. “I want this to be a very long-term relationship because it’s fun to have this little project and also try to sell our little baby that we came up with and to make it grow,” he says.

Miranda Kerr’s 5 Favorite Things iranda Kerr’s home, she says, is her sanctuary. And her interior design style of choice is “contemporary with M clean lines and timeless pieces,” she tells Reside . ®

The Australian-born model and entrepreneur lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Evan Spiegel, 29, co-founder of Snapchat, and her sons, Flynn, 8, and Hart, 1. (As of publication time, Kerr was pregnant with her third child.) The house itself boasts lots of natural light and open spaces, she says. “With two children and another on the way I try to create spaces that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional for a family.” They also love to entertain family and friends. “So we spend a lot of time outside in the garden and by the pool,” she says. Aside from being a busy mom, she’s a multitasking businesswoman, running KORA Organics, a line of Australianmade skin-care products made of natural and certified organic ingredients. She started the company in 2009. She’s also a collector. “I love collecting pieces from all over the world, but one of my favorite things to collect is books and also crystals—I have crystals in every room,” she says. Kerr, 36, shares her five favorite items at home.

Royal Albert Friendship Tea Set

“I love to drink tea and have a special teacup (it’s one from the collection I designed for Royal Albert) that I have my tea in each morning,” she says. “If I’m traveling, I also take the teacup with me so it feels like I have a little bit of home with me no matter where I am.”

“You can find them in nearly every room of the house, from the bathrooms to my bedside table, Flynn’s and Hart’s bedrooms to the kitchen,” she says. Her husband, she says, opts for the Noni Glow Face Oil and the Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating 2-in-1 mask.

Omakase Everywhere Seven places to indulge in the multicourse dining style— outside of Japan


he Japanese tradition of omakase, an extravagant multicourse meal that loosely translated means “I trust you,” T traces its history to the way sushi was originally served.

“A sushi chef’s job was always to find a variety of seasonal ingredients, and customers would then defer to the chef’s creations,” says Trevor Corson, author of The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice. In recent years, omakase has become an even more decadent (and pricey) experience that can span well over two hours. But it has kept to its original tradition, in which the chef creates a menu suited to his or her creativity—and to the foods that are in season—and interacts with customers during the lengthy meal to create a warm, interactive experience. So, where are the best places around the globe to experience omakase outside of Japan? Here are seven to consider. 1

SingleThread, Healdsburg, Calif.

“This three Michelin-starred restaurant, led by chef/owner Kyle Connaughton in California’s wine country, offers an 11-course omakase menu that’s off the charts,” says Nancy Singleton Hachisu, a Japanese food expert and author of Japan: The Cookbook. The omakase menu, presented kaiseki style (which originated in Kyoto), features fish imported directly from Japan, such as rudderfish and Hokkaido sea urchin. “The omakase here is lovely, thoughtful, and impeccably sourced,” Hachisu says. 2

Otoko, Austin, Texas

At this intimate 12-seat restaurant tucked away in the South Congress Hotel, expect an omakase experience that blends Tokyo-style sushi and Kyoto-style kaiseki with fish flown in from Japan daily. Head chef Yoshi Okai, featured in Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs of 2017, is known for his playful take on omakase and his innovative use of ingredients such as pine nuts and black truffle oil. Note: You’ll need to book tickets for omakase three months in advance.

Hiden, Miami

The lucky eight who are granted the passcode to the front door can expect a seven- to- eight-course omakase experience at Hiden, named for the legendary small, secret omakase restaurants of Japan. A unique passcode is emailed to guests a few hours before their seating time, and the code expires within 15 minutes of the reservation—so you can’t arrive late to dinner. The menu, served during two seatings, is the creation of chef Tetsuya Honda and sous chef James Weinlein and features cold and hot dishes, a sushi selection, and dessert. 4

Sushi Nakazawa, New York

Diners are promised a feeling of euphoria after indulging in the 20-course omakase prepared by chef Daisuke Nakazawa. Nestled in a picturesque street in Manhattan’s West Village, Sushi Nakazawa features ingredients sourced domestically and internationally based on what fishermen have handpicked for the chef. The menu, which might include bigfin reef squid, skipjack tuna, and Japanese sea urchin, is crafted in the style of Edomae sushi, the authentic sushi that was invented in Tokyo over 200 years ago. Dessert at this restaurant, which received a rare four-star review from the New York Times when it opened in 2013, is always Nakazawa’s renowned egg custard.


The Araki, London

When Mitsuhiro Araki closed his three Michelin-starred restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo, and opened The Araki in Mayfair, Londoners were thrilled to experience his world-famous Edomae-style sushi sourced with mostly European fish. Today, chef Marty Lau—who began apprenticing under sushi master Araki in 2015—has taken the helm of this venue, which boasts nine cypress counter seats, all facing the master. 6 Hōseki, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Located in the luxurious Bulgari Resort situated on the manmade Jumeirah Bay, an island carved into the shape of a seahorse, omakase aficionados are drawn to Hoseki—which means “gemstone” in Japanese—a nine-seat dining room overlooking the Dubai skyline. Here, chef Masahiro Sugiyama serves a multicourse omakase menu where no two meals are exactly alike.

bring Your garden inside How to find your “soil Mate” and Make Your Home Bloom


ringing plants indoors can open your home to a breath of fresh air, both from an aesthetic and a holistic perspective. B They add life and color wherever you put them and have a

host of health benefits. “Studies show that indoor plants can reduce stress, boost concentration and creativity, improve air quality, and, as most plant parents can attest, are therapeutic to care for,” says Eliza Blank, founder and CEO of The Sill, a direct-to-consumer plant brand with locations in New York, West Hollywood, and San Francisco. These days, finding your soil mate is as easy as ordering from Amazon. The Sill also offers plant delivery right to your door. In addition, there are online companies like Bloomscape, which ship full-grown plants straight from the greenhouse to you—already properly potted and with the necessary drainage. “Plants are like anything else these days, you can sit on your phone and order them while you’re on the subway,” says Elizabeth Stuart, principal of Elizabeth Stuart Design in Charleston, S.C. “But considering what type of plant works for you is like deciding what kind of pet fits your lifestyle,” Stuart says. “Are you a goldfish kind of person or a high-maintenance cat kind of person? Plants are no different.”

Most indoor plants need little light.

Choose Carefully

Be realistic about your time commitment, Blank says. Plants can be delicate, and the wrong kind of care can have grave effects. “Eighty percent of plants are killed by overwatering, and the other 20% are killed by no watering,” says Fernando Wong, founder of Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design in Miami. Generally, indoor plants aren’t as susceptible to seasonal changes, Blank says. “However, the changes you make to your indoor environment (using an air conditioner in summer or heater during winter, for example) can impact your plants’ overall health,” she says. She recommends keeping houseplants away from anything that causes an extreme temperature change or a warm or cold draft, since plants prefer stability. Wong recommends species such as cactus plants and succulents because they require almost no care. “Ficus lyrata, otherwise known as the fiddle-leaf fig, is also a great choice because all it needs is a little sun and very little water,” Wong adds. Palms such as areca, bamboo, and Chinese fans are ideal year-round

indoor plants, Wong says. “Phalaenopsis orchids are also a reliable and beautiful choice because of the long time they keep their blooms,” he says. Stuart loves the dark green of a philodendron, which only needs low light, as well as African violets, which also retain beauty year-round. She recommends keeping African violets in bright light and watering them from underneath in the tray (if water gets on the leaves, it can burn them when light hits). “This is where a long-spouted watering can comes in handy. Water from the bottom about once a week, then they bloom and bloom,” she says. Handle With Care

Each variety of plant is different. Some require lots of water and others just a quick sprinkle every other week. “Many plants let you know what they need via their leaves. For example, a wrinkled leaf coupled with dry potting mix could signal a need for a drink,” Blank says. “One of our No. 1 tips for new plant parents is to know what type of environment your plants are native to, e.g. a desert or the tropics. That knowledge will help you figure out how much light your plant

needs to survive and generally how often it’ll want to be watered,” she says. Here’s the dirt on soil: “Usually, the soil that your plant comes in when you first buy it is filled with nutrients and doesn’t need any fertilizing to begin with,” Stuart says. However, over time, it’ll need a bit of fertilizer. “Also remember, overwatering and underwatering produce the same symptoms,” Stuart says. For example, when a plant looks weathered, you may think it’s not getting enough water, when actually, it’s getting too much water, she explains. “Just stick your finger in the dirt and that’ll let you know what your plant is trying to tell you.” Let There be Light

The beauty of the indoor plant is that most need only moderate light, Wong says. “You should always think about the intensity, duration, and quality of the light your plants will get,” he says. “You can have beautiful plants in very dim light, like philodendron and peace lilies, while others like paddle plant and fiddle-leaf fig need a very bright light,” Stuart says. But there are also great options even for low-light spaces. “At The Sill, we make it easy for our customers to find plants based on the amount and quality of sunlight in their home, by grouping plants by low light, bright light, and everything in between,” Blank says.

Curate the Look

Plants add color to a room and have a host of health benefits, including cleaner air.

There are myriad ways to display indoor plants—you need only a bit of imagination. Stuart prefers to give large plants space in a cozy corner. She also likes putting smaller plants on a bookshelf with trays underneath them to capture water and protect furniture. “You can display them in baskets or fun pots that you find in flea markets, or even in interesting silver wine coolers,” Stuart says. 25

Brand Power There is nothing more powerful than a big name coming together with a stunning property By Iyna Bort Caruso


hen it comes to branded residential developments, the name can make all the difference. “Luxury brands resonate with people,” says Deirdre O’Connell, chief executive officer for Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty in Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. “There’s a certain confidence customers enjoy when buying a luxury-branded product because the company’s reputation is based on it.” In Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., for instance, there is the Porsche Design Tower. It features a parking system in which a robotic arm places one’s vehicle in a private glass elevator that whisks both car and resident right to their door. Other examples include St. Regis Residences in Bermuda and Boston as well as a Four Season Private Residences in Montreal. Experts agree people are willing to pay extra for the highest level of service.

Han Chong’s New Take on Luxury The Malaysian - born designer’s brand, Self- Portrait, is finding a varied fan base— from Beyoncé ­ to Michelle Obama to British royals — by redefining femininity

When you launched Self-Portrait, retailers pushed you to go for a luxury price point. You resisted. Wouldn’t it have been easier to go along?

There are plenty of brands out there designing luxury fashion, but it’s not accessible. Although it might have been easier, I wanted to bring something new to the table by bridging the massive gap between high street and luxury. I’ve always believed fashion should be more inclusive. Luxury shouldn’t only be for the privileged few. My goal in starting Self-Portrait was to change people’s perspectives on what makes a luxury brand. Leaving Malaysia to come to London— how tough was that transition?

n 2013, when designer Han Chong launched his contemporary womenswear brand, Self-Portrait, he faced a stern Iresponse from retailers: Nice designs, but not expensive

enough, they said. Shoppers expect a certain price point from luxury brands, they said. Tough, he said. Well, essentially that. He stuck to his guns, determined to offer luxurious wares at prices that aren’t cheap, by any means, but aren’t astronomically high either. The gamble paid off. His ultrafeminine dresses, with sheer lace, delicate eyelet, and frilly trim, quickly won over high-profile fans, including Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, royals Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, plus Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, and a slew of other bold-faced names. Born in Penang, Malaysia, Chong, 40, now lives and works in London, and his label is sold at major retailers, from Selfridges to Net-a-Porter to Neiman Marcus. 30

It was my tutor at college who encouraged me to move to London to study at Central Saint Martins. [Which he did, and this year Chong will launch a scholarship program there to support young talent.] It’s been the most rewarding experience. London is diverse and inspiring. There’s always a gallery opening or a pop-up. I could think of no better place to live and set up a business. What did you find most surprising about London?

It never stops moving. And the one thing you’d change about it, if you could?

The weather.

Ah, yes. Does being an expat give you a perspective that’s helpful in your business?

In London, almost everyone you meet is from somewhere else. Everyone has a unique perspective on the city. However, within a business, you have to focus on building your own story and vision, rather than looking at what others are doing. When I launched Self-Portrait, I focused on creating a signature—the “Azalea” [a dress style of sheer textured lace that fast became a red-carpet staple, worn by Miranda Kerr, Bella Thorne, and Maisie Williams, among others]. It helped to get the brand noticed. A designer’s schedule includes lots of travel. Do you enjoy that, or are you a homebody?

I spend half my time traveling. At the moment, I’m still enjoying it! It’s the nature of the job that you get to meet many interesting people during your travels. But London will always be a home that I’m happy to come back to. You opened your first stand-alone store in London last year. How’s that going?

The experience was a learning curve— there is so much involved! That being said, it’s so great to have a space [in which] to interact with our customers. I love popping in to speak with them. Their feedback is so key when I’m designing. It’s all for them, after all.

was deeply inspired by the setting’s neutral colors of sand and water, and the warm tone invites the cozy feeling you get when you have some quiet time away from your hectic schedule. Veyla Natai is in the Natai Region of Phang-Nga Province, only 30 minutes from Phuket International Airport in Thailand. It is a beautiful, hidden gem with 110 meters of pristine beachfront on the crystal clear Adaman Ocean. The highly limited freehold beachfront land drives the area’s prestige status. The area and the villas offer a truly extravagant lifestyle—of waking up just a few steps away from the sand.

developer. She has been interested and involved in the art scene in Thailand since a young age, and was the founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Store in Bangkok. (She also was the face of the Thai National Museum, for its product design and merchandising divisions—an effort to promote the arts in an accessible way.) She is now working closely with Thai art collectors to promote Thai arts. Her passion for art is not limited to traditional Thai pieces, though. In 2008 she created real estate development firm Ideas 1606, and since then has built the brand Veyla, developing multiple award-winning high-end residences in Hua Hin, ChaAm, and now Veyla Natai, in Phang-Nga Province. Her experience in the luxury goods and retail sectors is unmatched, and when it comes to her real estate development brand, Veyla, no compromises were made. Veyla focuses on people and time—the people who choose to spend their time here and the people in the community that surrounds it. Veyla’s goal is to bring tasteful design and quality construction to luxury residential developments while only choosing pristine locations—those blessed with serenity, beautiful natural landscapes, and modern-day conveniences. In an effort to preserve the timeless legacy of the Phang-Nga Province, Veyla Natai carefully sourced one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, artifacts, and accessories, all handmade by local craftsmen, with long, traditional history. The villas embrace traditional charms with modern-day technology, using only the most advanced cutting edge technology for temperature, lighting, humidity, and ventilation control, all accessible by the smart system at your fingertips. The architectural design is mono-

chromatic with simple lines—using as inspiration the color of the sand on Natai Beach, which has distinctive colors unlike any other beaches. The interior design of Veyla Natai is based on the same color scheme; the materials are wood, weaving, and textile—made in the traditional method in a warm sand color for a soft and relaxing tone. Veyla Natai has two main types of villa­—both with three bedrooms. The beachfront villas, Veyla Beach, have scenic Andaman Ocean views. From the rooftop at night, you can see all the stars in the sky, and hear the sounds of the waves crashing into the sand. The second type of villa, Veyla Sea, is a three-story panoramic sea-view villa; an infinity pool on the second floor of each just weaves itself endlessly into the ocean. The residents of Veyla Natai can enjoy recreational facilities at Veyla Sand, a common area featuring a 25-meter swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, an outdoor screening space, a lounge, a sun deck, a moon deck, an exercise room, a chef’s table dining area, and a DJ station, to name a few. Veyla seeks to provide its residents with the most comfortable visit and stay possible. The project will be managed by the region’s leading management company, Elite Havens, so residents can rest assured their homes are being taken care of while they are away. Not just a lifestyle choice, Veyla Natai is also an investment. The villas can create income for owners when they are away. By joining the rental management program, owners can enjoy seamless service. It’s a true gift—to be able to take the time, sit still and quietly, and only focus on what truly matters to you.

Rome’s Peak Neighborhood Monteverde Vecchio offers the “best views of Rome”

In the city of Seven Hills, Gianicolo (the English spelling is Janiculum) lays claim to No. 8. (Although it’s Rome’s second-tallest hill, it fell outside the boundaries of the ancient city when the seven were named.) Enclosed by an ancient stone wall, the hill in general—and Monteverde Vecchio in particular—offers “the best views of Rome,” says Barbara Alessio, senior sales manager for Italy Sotheby’s International Realty. There’s much to see and do in the area, which, in a quaint tradition dating to the 19th century, salutes the arrival of noon each day with the firing of a cannon.

Villas With Views

Monteverde Vecchio, which Alessio 34

says is “one of the most elegant residential areas of Rome,” is bordered on the north by the ancient Aurelian Way, on the west by Via Portuense, on the east by the ancient Gianicolensi walls, and on the south by Viale Trastere. Its large, luxurious villas, built in the 1910s through the 1930s, are set among manicured gardens and are reached by sloping, winding roads shaded by trees. There is a wide price range, Alessio says, with villas commanding about €7,000 per square meter. One of her current listings, a 1930s traditional-style villa that’s 865 square meters (9,310 square feet), is on the market for €5.9 million. There are also some apartment buildings from the same period. A medium-size apartment in good condition in a nice building on a desirable street can bring €5,000 per square meter, Alessio says, adding that a penthouse would be in

the same price range as a villa. “If it has a spectacular view, the price can go up 30% beyond that,” she says. She adds that “there are lots of old-money and old-name families, and many of them have owned their villas for a hundred years.” What Makes It Unique

Small and unsung, Monteverde Vecchio offers the perfect balance of city and suburban living. “You have to be a native Roman to even know this neighborhood exists,” Alessio says. “It’s a beautiful, quiet place that’s five minutes from all the amenities—shops, restaurants, and nightlife—of Rome.” On the dining scene, locals favor Antico Arco, an Italian restaurant whose wine cellar, located in one of the city’s ancient catacombs, contains

some 20,000 bottles representing 1,200 labels from around the world. Caffe Fiorini, open from breakfast to after-dinner cocktails, is “the kind of place you can stay all day,” Alessio says. The unpretentious Bar Gianicolo, in the Piazzale Aurelio, attracts students and teachers from the nearby American Academy of Rome. Next to it is Piazza Garibaldi, a square that appeals to tourists who gaze at its breathtaking views of the Eternal City. “People park and look at the views and sunsets,” Alessio says. “For couples, it’s a romantic spot.” Monteverde Vecchio’s Homebaked coffee shop and eatery, owned by Americans, sells treats popular in the U.S., including brownies and bagels. “It’s the only place where you can get cinnamon rolls and pumpkin pie,” Alessio says. In Trastevere, a 10-minute drive

away, Pasticceria Valzani, established in 1925, sells chocolates and desserts; Pandora Della Malva offers contemporary jewelry and art; Joseph Debach creates handmade shoes; and Polvere Di Tempo sells hourglasses, compasses, and other time-related antiques. Monteverde Vecchio has two parks. The 454-acre Villa Doria Pamphili, the largest public landscaped park in Rome, is home to a 17th-century villa and Vivi Bistrot, a restaurant with a healthy, organic menu; Villa Sciarra, named for the villa on the property, became a public park in 1932. But the neighborhood’s most prominent landmark is the Garibaldi Monument, a larger-than-life bronze statue of the statesman riding a horse into battle, commemorating the French army’s 1849 assault on Rome. Cultural life in Monteverde Vecchio is

centered on the American Academy in Rome, a research and arts institution. “It brings in artists, events, concerts, and cultural discussions,” Alessio says. Residents send children primarily to local state schools. Two well-known private international schools provide alternatives: Ambrit International School, a kindergarten-through-middle school that’s less than three miles from Monteverde Vecchio; and St. Stephen’s, a coeducational, nondenominational day and boarding school for students in grades nine through 12, two miles away. The American University of Rome is also in the area. And John Cabot, a 10-minute drive away in Trastevere, is an American liberal arts university. With all its amenities, Alessio says Monteverde Vecchio is Rome’s hidden treasure. “Once people discover it,” she says, “they never want to leave.”

Monteverde Vecchio’s large, luxurious homes are set amid manicured gardens.

Where Art and Travel Meet These three cities shaped these iconic artists —and vice versa etting up close and personal with the art world’s biggest names is always a thrill; museums worldwide provide G easy access to priceless works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Andy Warhol. But to really understand these masters, it’s best to check out the cities that nurtured and inspired them. Lifelong devotees make pilgrimages to the following destinations, just to further develop their appreciation of their favorite artists:

Pablo Picasso’s

A mural by Pablo Picasso decorates the facade of the Col•legi d’Arquitectes in Barcelona.


Pablo Picasso moved to this Catalan capital at age 14 in 1895, and studied at La Llotja art school. Housed in a Gothic building in the Plaça Palau, the school was near Picasso’s home in the Porxos d’en Xifré; from his terrace there, he painted surrounding rooftops. Museu Picasso, housed in five Gothic palazzos, features more than 4,000 items, including rare early pieces and Blue Period masterworks. A short distance from there, the Plaça Nova is the site of Picasso’s only outdoor works in the city. Picasso’s friezes decorate the facade of the Col·legi d’Arquitectes. Visitors in a hurry can take the year-round Turisme de Barcelona’s Picasso walking tour. Stops include La Llotja, the Col·legi d’Arquitectes, and the Quatre Gats, a beer hall and cabaret where the master held his first solo exhibition. Round out a Picasso-focused visit with a stay at The Serras Hotel Barcelona, a luxury haunt housed in a historic building where Picasso had his first studio in 1896.

New York City

To Andy Warhol—who moved to New York from his native Pittsburgh in 1949—the city was a canvas, a medium, and an inspiration. Warhol’s imprint can still be found all around Manhattan, with several key spots situated near his longtime home on the Upper East Side. Warhol was once turned down by the Museum of Modern Art; today, the museum’s permanent collection includes roughly 250 of his works, including Gold Marilyn Monroe. The Guggenheim Museum also houses a collection of Warhol’s paintings, silkscreens, and photographs; highlights include Orange Disaster #5, Self-Portrait in Drag, Electric Chair, and Flowers. Warhol fans can also retrace the artist’s steps at one of his regular hangouts. He was a loyal customer of Serendipity 3, the legendary dessert spot in Midtown East where Warhol was said to be partial to the lemon icebox pie. In SoHo, the old-school French bistro Raoul’s hosted Warhol throughout the late 1970s and ’80s. The Odeon, which opened in Tribeca in 1980, is another downtown

hot spot that was regularly frequented by Warhol and friends such as Jean-Michael Basquiat and Keith Haring. Mr. Chow, a slick restaurant known for its pricey Chinese cuisine, was one of Warhol’s favorite eateries during his later years. Warhol was a legendary shopper, and by some accounts his commercial lodestar was the flagship Bloomingdale’s. A short walk from his townhouse on East 66th Street, “Bloomie’s” was something akin to a museum of consumerism in Warhol’s eyes. Serious Warhol followers can’t leave New York without paying respects to one of the artist’s factories, as he called his studios. The site of Warhol’s first Factory, on East 47th Street, is now a parking lot; the site of the final Factory, on East 33rd Street, hosts a modern glass-and-steel building.

Tribeca’s The Odeon was a meet-up spot for Andy Warhol and other notable artists.

Georgia O’Keeffe’s time in the American Southwest served as inspiration for her paintings of New Mexico landscapes and images of animal skulls. In 1997, 11 years after her death, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum opened to the public in Santa Fe, N.M. The museum’s collection encompasses more than 3,000 works. It also oversees the preservation of O’Keeffe’s home and studio along the Chama River in Abiquiu, about an hour north of Santa Fe. The national historic landmark is open for tours by appointment. Notable hotels and resorts such as the El Dorado Hotel and La Fonda on the Plaza offer O’Keeffe-themed packages, and the Santa Fe School of Cooking offers a three-hour Cooking Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe class, which features stories and insights into O’Keeffe’s life from Margaret Wood, the artist’s longtime assistant. Culinary enthusiasts can also enjoy the O’Keeffe Table tasting menu at Eloisa Restaurant; the artfully presented, five-course meal pays tribute to O’Keeffe and the foods she grew and cooked at her Abiquiu home. Before departing Santa Fe, serious O’Keeffe fans are wise to stop by the New Mexico Museum of Art, which has a few of her works in its collection that may be on view at any given time. 37

Creating Cozy Corners How to carve out a snug little nook that makes you feel right at home

here’s something about a snug little spot that evokes all the warmT and-cozies.

“There’s nothing that gives off a homey vibe like a cozy nook; it’s the perfect space to curl up with a cup of tea and read a book,” says Christine Markatos Lowe of Christine Markatos Design in Santa Monica, Calif. “We find that it is the small cozy areas that end up being used the most,” says Emily Williams, co-founder of BradyWilliams, an interior-design studio in London. “For the bookworm, add a reading nook with a window seat flanked with bookcases and sconces. Or, for the leisurely couple, fill an empty corner with a comfortable chair or chaise longue and a small accent table to offer an area to read or enjoy a glass of wine,” advises Donna Mondi, founder and principal of Chicagobased Donna Mondi Interior Design. Your corner can be as simple as adding a few furniture pieces or as complex as incorporating a custom window seat, Mondi says. All it needs is a stylish touch to make it a standout spot. 38

Placement Makes Perfect

“Creating a nook in heavily used rooms is a great way to add another layer of seating, off a master bedroom, in a kitchen, or even in an office for a change of scenery when you’re sick of sitting at your desk,” Markatos Lowe says. Mondi says she prefers to put nooks in bedrooms, offices, or family rooms. Carleton Varney, president and owner of Dorothy Draper & Co. in Palm Beach, Fla., says the best spots for alcoves are at a window, in the corner of a larger room, or by a fireplace. “Dormers in roof lines also create an exciting opportunity,” Varney says. Look to Logistics

“These should feel like defined spaces and be able to stand alone while still coordinating with the rest of the room,” Varney says. You also want to make sure the free space around seating allows for flow and for traffic to stream through naturally. “Overcrowded areas can detract from the design vision and overall aesthetic of the space,” Mondi says. Another thing to keep in mind is furniture placement. “Avoid positioning the seating so that your back is facing the overall space, or you will never relax,” Williams says. Ideally, you should have something nice to look at and/or a window on one side. If you’re considering a window seat, design it deep enough to make room for comfortable cushions, Williams says. Make Color a Consideration

Color is a matter of preference. If you want the nook to feel like a continuation of your space, neutrals are a safe bet, as are dark and tonal hues, Williams says. Just make sure you layer with texture for added interest. “Try to ensure aspects of the color palette blend from

one area to the other,” Williams says. You might also pick coordinating patterns that are cohesive with the rest of the design elements, Markatos Lowe says. But they don’t have to repeat the exact motifs in the rest of your home. “They can be distinct enough so the nook has its own identity in the room as a separate space,” she says. Varney recommends contrasting the colors of your cranny to the rest of the space to help it stand out. “If you take the color of the room and do a deeper shade, it draws your eye,” Varney says. “I always feel painting smaller spaces bolder, deeper colors (rich wine, sea blue, forest green, warm gold, for example) is more interesting; just refrain from using white, as it’s too harsh for a comfortable space like this,” Varney says. Figure Out the Look and Feel

“I love to use rich, textured fabrics for the cushions or seating. Some of my favorites are velvets, alpaca wools, and mohair,” Mondi says. “Since these are typically small-scale pieces, infuse a fun pop of color with a rich, saturated hue.” Varney loves nubby fabrics that feel like blankets. “Think comfort,” he says. “We always prefer to do a built-in piece that feels like it’s always been part of the home and opt for luxe materials like velvet and soft linens,” Markatos Lowe says. She recommends including hard surfaces to rest a cup or book. Lighting is another essential element. “If you don’t have enough natural light, consider enhancing the space with swing-arm sconces or a reading lamp,” Mondi says. And all lighting should be on dimmers to change the mood. “Other accessories, such as screens or plants, can partly zone the space,” Williams says. “And something attractive like artwork, a window, or plant will focus the eye.”

According to Christian, good instinct has always been at the root of Hemmerle’s success. “For my parents’ generation, it was not so much about strategy,” he says. “They just made very good gut decisions, which led them to where we are today.” Hemmerle produces about 200 pieces a year. Each can take up to 500 hours to make, and all are created in-house in Munich, where the company’s sole boutique is also located. In 1893, brothers Joseph and Anton Hemmerle founded the firm there, upon taking over an established goldsmith’s operation. Two years later, Hemmerle was appointed “Purveyor to the Court” by Luitpold, Prince Regent of Bavaria, and it soon became known for its “bejeweled fantasies”—a description that holds true today. In the 1970s, Stefan Hemmerle modernized the company by taking it in a design-driven direction, which integrated unusual materials, such as iron and wood, with its precious gems. In 2019, Christian and Yasmin continue to usher in a new era at Hemmerle. They cater to an increasingly international clientele and innovate

York; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York all counting Hemmerle jewels in their collections. Christian, who also sits on Tefaf’s board of trustees, recalls a recent trip to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and his surprise at seeing works by the Dutch master alongside those by American sculptor John Chamberlain. “There were so many years between the two, but it showed me that everybody gets inspired by their surroundings,” he says of the exhibition. “Hemmerle’s challenge today is to take just a small, abstract element of something, whether it’s a shape or a color palette, and reinterpret it in our work.” While some Hemmerle jewels prioritize color and clean lines in striking designs, such as their signature Harmony bangle, other pieces contemporize history. Their Egyptian Story collection, for example, was sparked by the Hemmerle family’s visit to Cairo to meet Yasmin’s family. Inspired by ancient Egypt’s reverence for jewelry, Hemmerle created pieces based around materials like turquoise, motifs such as scarabs (dung beetles), and artifacts including faiences and amulets, to pay homage to the country’s distinct visual vocabulary. And last year, for its 125th anniversary, Hemmerle created several jewels, called Revived Treasures, such

as a necklace (on page 40) featuring a faience from Egypt’s Amarna Period, 1352–36 BC, from which emeralds and sapphires hang on a flexible strap of hand-sewn agate beads knitted over silk. Other Hemmerle jewels serve as reminders of the house’s regard for whimsy. Take for example its Tarantula brooch. Comprised of yellow gold, diamonds, sapphires, and conch pearl, the piece is captivating in its radiance, as well as in its highly realistic form, down to the chill-inducing texture of its furry legs. For their 2011 Delicious Jewels project, Christian and Yasmin designed a collection that took the form of vegetables. A book of the same name was also published, featuring recipes by food writer Tamasin DayLewis alongside the jewels. But don’t ask Christian and Yasmin to pick their favorite piece. “Like with kids, even if you have a favorite child, you don’t share it because it would do the others injustice,” explains Christian. But if you ask him which project best represents his and Yasmin’s contribution to the heritage brand, he concedes, “Definitely our Delicious Jewels. It’s important not to be too serious. Life needs humor.” Stephanie Sporn is a staff writer for This article originally appeared in Sotheby’s magazine.

in their designs using unconventional objects found in nature, such as acorns from New York’s Central Park and pebbles from Munich’s Isar River. Stones range from diamonds and jade to tsavorites and melo pearl. “My dad never looked at materials by value. He just looked at beauty,” Christian says. “He taught us to walk around with an open mind and get inspired. Obviously, diamonds and rubies are more precious than tourmalines, but tourmalines can be just as beautiful.” As Christian and Yasmin take on more responsibility at Hemmerle, and as the firm’s presence at fairs, museums, and auctions skyrockets, it is clear that Stefan’s playful imagination and passion for beauty aren’t the only attributes that have influenced the couple. Rather, his conviction empowers their steadfast belief that increased demand shouldn’t compromise their bespoke process. “Our pieces are taking more and more time to create because we are extremely detail-driven,” explains Yasmin. “We believe that it’s the last 5% of the workmanship that really makes the jewel.” As evidenced by their designs, ranging from Paul Klee–inspired geometric earrings to necklaces that incorporate ancient artifacts, art is a major inspiration for Christian and Yasmin.

Bangkok at Night Top- notch spots in the Thai city— from a hotel’s rice barge to a bar serving art- inspired cocktails


o some, the mention of Bangkok at night leads to thoughts of touristy T dinner shows and adult entertainment. But in recent years, forward-thinking owners and operators have modernized nightlife in Thailand’s largest city across various categories. Take your nighttime fun in the sprawling metropolis to a higher level with a visit to the Tower Club at lebua, home to the vertigo-inducing Sky Bar.

From an open-air perch 63 stories above Bangkok, the bar provides a show-stopping place to enjoy craft cocktails inspired by the solar system. For a sexy speakeasy experience, head to the Thonglor neighborhood, where Rabbit Hole lurks behind an unassuming wooden door.

coolest places for a nighttime rendezvous—provides a stage for Supawit “Palm” Muttarattana’s modern art-inspired cocktails. A mix of stylishly dressed locals flock to the green-marble bar while enjoying drinks such as the Flower Carrier (gin, rum, chardonnay, lemon, osmanthus, and bitters), inspired by the 1935 Diego Rivera painting of the same name. For performances, one of the finest opera companies in Southeast Asia, Bangkok’s Opera Siam, is nearing its 20th season. There you’ll see established classics, contemporary new works, and world premieres from Asian composers. Keep an eye out for selections from the Thai composer S.P. Somtow’s Dasjati series, a 10-part ongoing sequence that, when finished, will be among the largest unified works in all of classical music. Leading the charge among Bangkok’s high-end offerings are the city’s top hotels. Set on three acres of verdant frontage along the Chao Phraya River, The Siam is a 39-unit urban luxury resort, conveniently located in the Royal Dusit District. Guests and nonguests alike can enjoy the resort’s notable food and beverage options, including Chon, a Thai restaurant with a cooking school; the sophisticated Deco Bar & Bistro; and private sunset dinner cruises aboard The Siam’s goldenteak rice barge. The grande dame of the city’s society scene, the Mandarin Oriental,

Bangkok, dates to 1876. Perched on the banks of the bustling Chao Phraya River, the flagship property has been a must-visit for generations. Nowadays, the resort has modernized its evening offerings, luring scores of nonguests with nine restaurants and bars, ranging from French gastronomy at Le Normandie to world-class cocktails and live music at The Bamboo Bar, which has hosted the likes of Ray Charles, Duke Ellington, Dionne Warwick, Louis Armstrong, and Mick Jagger. For a truly only-in-Thailand experience, make reservations for Sala Rim Naam, an immersive experience that combines traditional gourmet Thai cuisine with live entertainment by performers in vivid traditional outfits. The nighttime is a fine time for pampering, and Bangkok is one of the world’s premier spa destinations. Most of the leading spas, while culturally rooted in ancient Thai techniques and traditions, also offer a wide variety of innovative therapies and cutting-edge technology. Several of the city’s top day spas stay open well into the evening, allowing weary travelers the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved foot massage before, or even after, dinner. The Oriental Spa at the Mandarin Oriental, open nightly until 10 p.m., offers incredible packages, such as the Spirit of Isaan, a two-and-a-half-hour ritual that incorporates natural Thai elements such as a rhythmic bamboo massage and a body wrap consisting of

black sticky rice, coarse coffee beans, and jasmine-rice soap. The Siam’s Opium Spa, also open nightly until 10 p.m., is another primo destination for pampering. Workout warriors can opt for a private Muay Thai boxing session followed by a relaxing massage treatment. Not to be outdone, the award-winning Peninsula Spa, housed in a stunning Thai colonial-style building by the Chao Phraya River, satisfies the need for pampering until 11 p.m. nightly. For a truly local-style evening activity, look no further than where the wealthy come to play: Bangkok’s highend shopping malls. Locals stream into these modern-day temples of consumerism at all hours; some come for marathon shopping sessions, others just to cool off in the air conditioning. All of the in-demand labels and brands—both domestic and foreign— are present, and scores of food and drink options ensure that no one leaves hungry or thirsty. Among the notable options—all open nightly until 10 p.m.—are the Siam Paragon, home to impressive glass-and-steel atriums and the flagship stores of Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Versace; Central Embassy Mall, the city’s first-ever “ultraluxury lifestyle mall,” built on the grounds of the former British Embassy; and the luxe EmQuartier, which features an open-air garden, six stories of dining terraces, and a five-story waterfall. 45

Calatrava’s Dubai Record - Breaker The famed architect’S observation tower Is the Centerpiece of the Dubai Creek Harbour luxury district

The tower is grounded by a complex web of cables.


The tower, which will soar 3,044 to 4,593 feet, will be the world’s tallest. (By design, the exact height won’t be revealed until it opens in 2020, so competitors with projects under construction can’t immediately try to inch past it. But the tower will be taller than the current title-holder, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which topped out in 2009 at 2,722.44 feet.) Sited on the waterfront of Dubai Creek, the cultural and historic center of the United Arab Emirates city, Calatrava’s observation tower will be the centerpiece of a larger luxury development district called Dubai Creek Harbour, which at 2.3 square miles, will be three times the size of downtown Dubai. Dubai Creek Harbour is being marketed as a major tourist destination. It’s next to the 1,532-acre Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, the home of various migratory birds and 500 flamingos. The district will have seven islands that include office, residential, and retail buildings. Calatrava, the Spanish architect and engineer who designed the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York, the Turning Torso tower in Malmö, Sweden, and the City of Arts and Sciences entertainment complex in Valencia, Spain, modeled the Dubai Creek Tower on the natural forms of the lily and the shape of the minaret. “The building’s design is inspired by the Islamic tradition, evoking the same history that brought the world the Alhambra and the Mosque of Córdoba,” he said in a statement after winning the design competition. “These architectural marvels combine elegance and beauty and mathematics and geometry. The design of the tower is rooted in classical art and the culture of Dubai. It is also a major technological achievement.” The tower, which looks like a spaceship poised for takeoff, is anchored by artful cables meant to evoke the ethereal ribbing of the lily’s leaves. The system is reminiscent of the one Calatrava employed in Jerusalem’s Chords Bridge,

which was inspired by the strings of a harp. The cables form a gossamer cocoon around the tower’s central stem, which terminates in an ovalshaped bud-like finial illuminated at night by a beacon of light. The tower will have 10 observation decks, including the Pinnacle Room, with 360-degree views that span beyond the city. There also will be a series of decks, including two VIP observation spaces that recreate the ancient Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. One of the decks will include a café, and there will be event spaces throughout. The tower’s ground-level Central Plaza will include retail stores, a museum, educational facilities, and an indoor auditorium. In addition, the tower will have a number of balconies that rotate. Energy-efficient and sustainable, the Dubai Creek Tower will feature a hightech cooling system; water collected from it will clean the building’s facade. Landscaping and vegetation will help shield the structure from the sun, and an integrated shading system and wing doors will increase its green factor. In announcing the selection of Calatrava’s design, Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of developer Emaar Properties, said it “was a perfect fit for our requirement for a landmark that defined our urban core for Dubai Creek Harbour.” Noting that the tower will bring great economic value to Dubai and the U.A.E., he added that “it will position Dubai Creek Harbour as one of the most desired residential, leisure, and touristic attractions, providing tourists and residents with a modern, luxurious, and sustainable environment in which to live, work, learn, and entertain.” Calatrava considers the tower a vehicle for art and beauty. “This project is an artistic achievement, inspired by the goal of making this space a meeting point for citizens, not only from Dubai and the U.A.E. but all across the world,” he said in a statement. “It is a symbol of belief in progress.” 47

Four Exclusive Estates in a California Enclave The stately homes of Woodside offer a refuge among the redwoods, and a tranquil retreat on the edge of Silicon Valley


hen it comes to forested hideaways near bustling urban centers, few are as refined as Woodside. This town of 5,500 in Northern California is a haven for W the region’s innovators, creatives, and sportspeople: Its properties are secluded

and serene, its landscape idyllic, and the economic engine of Palo Alto and the esteemed halls of Stanford University are all within reach. This is equestrian country on the cusp of the city, and the properties here feel like sanctuaries. Whether your days are spent recreating or ideating, Woodside offers private country living to the active and discerning buyer. 1

For the Equestrian...

The best of this destination town can be seen at this traditional Woodside estate. Thanks to the area’s temperate climate, the home provides a green getaway: cloaks of wisteria, stately hornbeams, and wild grasses surround the property, enhancing the sense of history and privacy. The vibrant hub of Silicon Valley is less than 15 minutes away— and, suitably, the property includes a separate 621-square-foot office for the enterprising professional. The estate was bought by shipping magnate Captain William Matson in 1924, but it was his daughter, celebrated equestrian Lurline Matson Roth, who commissioned the world-class 2,897-square-foot stables and adjacent riding ring. This is a home that lends 48

itself to health, wellness, and active living, as further evidenced by its fitness studio, tennis court, swimming pool, spa terrace, and abundance of trails and wildlife corridors. 2

The Vintner...

This Woodside vineyard estate is tailor-made for life in the sun, and is exceptional even by local standards. Situated in a neighborhood known for its large acreage, private properties, and secure setting, this is one of the few homes in the area that features its very own field of grafted aged vines; fittingly, its wide selection of amenities includes a wine room. Built for the active family, this home features an au pair suite, a separate entertainment pavilion, and a truly inspiring arboreal playground

spanning three large trees. The home has been remodeled twice since it was built in 2009, and its interiors are infused with an airy, modern simplicity. The contemporary details continue behind the scenes, in the buildings’ many technological features and sustainable LEED Platinum-certified design. 3

The Founder...

When it comes to spectacular architecture, this Woodside Italian villa is a timeless construction that unites classical Tuscan splendor with contemporary California style. When the original homeowners redeveloped the property, replacing the plot’s original Cliff May-designed ranch home, they preserved the building’s carved wood ceiling, crafted in Venice circa 1490; they knew this would be a showpiece for their new villa. They subsequently sourced and handpicked many of their materials in Italy—including wood beams, local stone, and 300-year-old terracotta roofing tiles—to build a home unlike any in the area. The result is a stunning residence

that evokes a rambling country estate. Nearly every room overlooks the gardens and the surrounding redwood forests; the central great room is notable for its 11-foot windows and latticed skylights. The master suite, with its signature Venetian plaster tray ceiling, boasts a bath that overlooks the meadow in the backyard, and a rooftop terrace with views of the lawns and outdoor pool. 4

The Family...

Entertaining guests is child’s play at this sophisticated family farmhouse that combines clean lines and futuristic tech to offer creative spaces and relaxation

to visitors and residents alike. The bespoke architectural touches are truly one of a kind: 40-foot vaulted ceilings in the great room are bisected by a flying bridge connecting the second-story bedrooms. This open-concept approach continues out onto porches and patios, where the home’s state-of-the-art audiovisual systems controls music and lighting throughout the house and outdoor spaces. For the growing household, that’s only half the fun. From the climbing gym and media room in the basement to the artist loft on the upper landing to the in-ground trampoline, skateboard ramp, and professional-grade putting

green in the yard, this home offers unparalleled recreation opportunities for the whole family. And all of these outdoor amenities are laid out tastefully amid the property’s mature oaks and manzanita trees, staples of the iconic Woodside landscape. Picturesque hills with towering redwood forests are yours in Woodside, where cycling paths and horse trails crisscross nature preserves and the Pacific Ocean is less than 20 miles away. With the central pillar of the world’s tech sector and some of the nation’s top schools on its doorstep, it’s no wonder artists, equestrians, and venture capitalists call this fashionable town home. 49


Hublot’s Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Red Ceramic.


R E S I D E FA L L 2 0 1 9

Color Theory When it comes to throwing shade, these watches don’t stop at the dial

lue and green dials have been on-trend in luxury watches for B years. But for those who want to make

an even bolder statement on their wrists, nothing speaks louder than a watch that fully embraces color, case and all. While PVD coatings have been used to turn case metal black, blue, and other shades, using advanced materials, such as ceramic, makes the color more than skin deep. Hublot spent four years perfecting its proprietary bright red ceramic, made by fusing heat and pressure through a special technique that doesn’t scorch the pigment. The patented material not only is vibrant and glossy, it’s also superdense, making it even harder and more scratch-resistant than typical ceramics.

The audacious Swiss brand launched the material in last year’s Big Bang Unico Red and followed up with this year’s 45mm Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski Ceramic (US$24,100), a limited edition of 200 pieces powered by the skeletonized automatic HUB1155 chronograph movement. Given that brand ambassador and French pop artist Richard Orlinski is known for sculpting animals in brightscarlet chromed resin, the red ceramic was a no-brainer for the faceted watch case that defines the line bearing his name. For slightly more timid souls, Hublot also makes ceramic cases in white, black, blue, and green. Ulysse Nardin also has been experimenting with alchemy, fusing lightweight carbon fiber with red epoxy resin to create the new Skeleton X Magma (US$25,000). The brand launched the open-worked Skeleton X line earlier this year, showcasing the X-shaped, manual-winding caliber UN-371 movement’s pared-down architecture, and dispensing with the dial for an unobstructed view through the watch. While the Skeleton X is striking in more conventional materials, the new carbon and resin case transforms it into a futuristic 43mm beast. The design is further amped up with fiery red applied to the indices and its namesake X framework. Even better, the material’s inherent irregular, undulating patterns make each watch unique. This year, IWC focused on its popular aviation range with several new models, including the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition Mojave Desert (US$9,100), limited to 500 pieces. The military-infused design claims to be the first watch with a sand-colored ceramic case. The 44.5mm automatic chronograph is powered by the IWC-manufactured caliber 69380, with a classic columnwheel design that pairs the chronograph function with dayand-date displays. The brand’s bidirectional pawl-winding system efficiently generates 46 hours of power reserve. Endowed with a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields, a screw-down crown, and an antireflective crystal that remains secure even when air pressure drops, this robust watch is built to handle extreme missions. The unusual color chosen for the ceramic case was inspired by the Mojave Desert, home of the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake. The shade, which perfectly matches the uniforms worn by Navy pilots, is created by combining zirconium oxide with other metallic oxides, bringing new meaning to the term “khaki fever.” 51

Toy cars can mean big business for collectors


ollecting toy cars is a great introduction to the real thing. Not only is it much less expensive, but you won’t have to C build or rent garage space to display your treasures.

As soon as there were cars, there were toy cars, with tinplate German models appearing as early as the late 19th century. Most had to be pushed by hand. A market for U.S.-made cast-iron cars (sturdy, but heavy!) developed early in the 20th century, in part because of the World War I–era blockade of German products. Hubley was incorporated in 1894, and made finely detailed vehicles into the 1990s. Competitor Arcade built a moving van that today is highly collectible with five-figure prices. Soon toy cars (some selling for only a penny) were made all over the world, in all sizes. British die-cast models such as Matchbox, Dinky, and Corgi became popular in the early 1950s. One of the most valuable toy vehicles in the world is a Tippco Mickey and Minnie Mouse Motorcycle made in Germany in 1932. A pristine example was sold for US$56,000 in 2010, a high-water mark for toy cars. RM Sotheby’s is a regular vendor of toy vehicles, which are often included as “automobilia” in the sale of large classic-car collections. Last year, for instance, a lot of five battle-scarred metal toy cars from the 1920s was sold in New Hampshire for US$1,440 as part of the late Henley Group CEO Michael Dingman’s extensive car collection. Inexpensive toys like these

were often thrown away, so survivors are rare. Minic toy cars were made by the Lines Brothers in England after World War II. Most had wind-up mechanisms (though Tri-ang Minic Motorways HO-scale electrics were also made) and could be raced against each other. The Guyton Collection, auctioned by RM Sotheby’s in St. Louis in May 2019, exceeded expectations with US$11.7 million in sales. Among its lots were 23 separate Minic toy car collections, ranging from store displays to service stations, military trucks, and racing cars—some in original boxes. Ron Sturgeon, founder of the DFW Elite Toy Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, says toys with their boxes can be worth double those without. “The first thing kids do is throw the boxes out,” he says. Also disappearing are removable people and accessories. Nonpowered models are generally worth more than those that are radio controlled. Plastic models are mostly not collectible, unless they’re particularly rare. Tin cars, which are fairly fragile, are sought after. ­­­ Kurt Forry, memorabilia specialist at RM Sotheby’s, says collectors should be on the lookout for mint condition, Japanese tin/litho cars with their original boxes, and any models based on vintage Ferraris or Porsches. “Examples like the Ferrari Tipo 500/F2 by Toschi and the Alfa Romeo P2 by CIJ are classic toys

that are always on the rise if offered to the right audience,” Forry says. Also desirable: German-made Guntermann and Carette toy cars, now around 100 years old. “They have wavering values at auction compared with what they used to bring, but are still valued at US$10,000-plus,” he says. Toy expert and blogger Stacey Bindman says pedal cars are among the largest toy collectibles, but generally haven’t drawn large sums at auctions—though rare examples in excellent condition have realized thousands. A “Kidallac” pedal car from the 1950s—with padded seats, chrome hubcaps, and a detailed dashboard—sold for US$1,495 as part of RM Sotheby’s Ponder Collection auction in Auburn, Ind., in 2007. A wood-bodied MG pedal car with an automotive-grade paint job sold there for US$2,013. James E. Dobson, founder of the Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum in Bay City, Mich., says his collection stretches to 16,000 pieces—almost all truck toys. A prize in the collection is a 50-pound model of the GMC Futurliner buses that toured the country as part of General Motors exhibits in the late 1940s and early ’50s. Dobson paid US$850 for it—now it’s worth US$5,000, he says. Some models are genuine works of art. In 1980, former General Motors lawyer Ron Phillips launched the Jeron Quarter-Scale Classics, which were

radio-controlled models of extraordinary detail, some with functioning brakes and running V-12 or V-8 small-block engines. The great cost of making the models meant they weren’t a commercial proposition, and not many were made of designs that included the Maserati 250 F, the Mercedes W154 Grand Prix racer, the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, and the 250 GTO. The Jeron quarter-size models, which cost more than US$30,000 new, were exhibited not in toy shops, but at prestigious auto events such as the Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance and the SEMA Convention. Just the engines have been auctioned for more than US$14,000. Prototypes of the 1969 Hot Wheels Volkswagen Beach Bomb, a Microbus van, are very rare. Because the buses were never mass-produced, those prototypes are worth around US$125,000—if you can find one. Today, most car models are made in China, and some—inexpensive now—could become highly collectible, especially if nobody buys them and few survive. Remember to save the boxes.

A peek into the world’s most exclusive wine and spirits clubs

t the world’s most exclusive wine and spirits clubs, members get to experience some of the best bottles out A there. But perhaps more important, they also gain access to

the people who know why they are the best: sommeliers, wine producers, and libation gurus who have put in the hours and who know the history of the spirits, the esoteric brand biographies, and the alchemic intricacies of a spirit’s production. Indeed, there is something to be said about exclusivity. For those who can fork over the cash—and it is typically a lot of cash—and who have an appreciation for fine drink, joining one of these clubs can be worthwhile. By nature, these clubs can be a bit hard to find. To make your search easier, here are some of the world’s most prestigious and exclusive ones. Cielo Club

Part of Moraga Bel Air, a pristine estate in the Santa Monica Mountains outside Los Angeles, the name of this club refers to a block of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vines at the summit of the vineyard, overlooking the Pacific; cielo means “sky” in Italian. Though a strenuous hike is required to reach that area, the club itself is effortless. Beyond deliveries of wine cases in the fall and the spring, it provides members with access to events at the Moraga Library Salon located on the estate, which is the former home of Victor Fleming, director of Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz. Multnomah Whiskey Library

The waiting list to become a member at this cozy, stupendously stocked whiskey bar in Portland, Ore., is about two years. Nonmembers can still visit without a reservation, although there can sometimes be a long wait—but it’s worth it. Home to 1,800 whiskeys priced from $5 to $800 a glass, a bevy of heavenly cocktails, and a world-class food menu to boot, Multnomah is a pleasant place to spend an afternoon or evening. Be sure to try the elk tartare.

To join this famed wine society, one first needs to become a member of France’s Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the world’s oldest gastronomic society. The Société Mondiale du Vin (commonly known as Mondiale) was formed for members who had a passion for vino. Members, many of whom are practicing or aspiring sommeliers, get access to a wide variety of exquisite and often rare vintages. Open to professionals and amateur connoisseurs alike, new members are admitted during a special ceremony and awarded a tastevin (tasting cup) to wear. Keepers of the Quaich

It is rather difficult to become a member of this uber-exclusive society: You must have worked in the scotch industry for at least five years and be invited to join. To date, there are around 2,700 members from over 100 countries. Meetings for the group (which has its own tartan) are held twice a year at Blair Castle, the seat of the Duke of Atholl in Scotland. Honor guards for guests are members of the Atholl Highlanders, Europe’s only legal private army. These are highly ritualized, prestigious affairs, with scotch aplenty and engaging guest speakers: Ronald Reagan gave a talk at one. 55

The brand specializes in gift items such as the Ultimate Beauty Bag, containing chocolate lipsticks and kisses and irresistible hand-painted confections adorned with pithy phrases like “Love You a Latte” and “Let’s Do Brunch.” Avanaa Chocolat

While roaming the streets on a trip to the city of Oaxaca in Mexico, Catherine Goulet was inspired by small workshops making chocolate from cacao beans. Spurred by the idea of crafting chocolate in Montreal, she visited plantations around the world for a year, eventually establishing Avanaa in the city’s Villeray neighborhood.

Jonathan Grahm is the vision behind this stylish Los Angeles–based chocolate empire, epitomizing the city’s hip art, culture, and fashion scenes. One of the youngest chocolatiers in the U.S., he took over Compartes when he was just 21 and purchased the company at age 24, adding his panache and that quintessential L.A. flair. Of all the company’s chocolate delights, Grahm’s award-winning ganache-filled truffles are the most sought after. They are handmade and taste as delicious as they look. The Nostalgia Collection, an assortment of classics, offers chocolate-dipped pretzels, Oreos, and grahams all in one delightful package. Veruca Chocolates

“Each piece we make is like a piece of art, handcrafted with love,” says Meghan Ryan, owner, chocolatier, and professionally trained chef. Beautifully designed bonbons, sea salt caramels, Champagne truffles, and other luxury chocolates are available to purchase

Honey-caramel chocolates decorated like bees, crunchy toffees, and chocolate-covered peanut-butter candies are a small representation of what this couple-owned company sells in its online shop. John and Kira Doyle support growers in their hometown of Philadelphia, using produce from urban school gardens and local farms. Their ganache-filled confections consist of a flavored cream and Valrhona chocolate emulsion coated in a waterfall of chocolate. S’mores & Caramel Marshmallow Heaven—the duo’s deconstructed s’more—combines layers of caramel, graham cracker, and milk- and dark-chocolate goodness. MarieBelle

Enthusiasm, drive, and a penchant for chocolate have led Maribel Lieberman down the path to sweet success. The Honduran native uses cacao harvested in the Americas paired with fresh fruit and other ingredients, such as English lavender, Puerto Rican rum, and Tahitian vanilla. The nine-piece New York Ganache Collection—consisting of the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, and other NYC landmarks—celebrates the Big Apple. Lieberman opened her first MarieBelle shop in 2001 in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, and she has since expanded to Brooklyn and Japan, with more stores in the works.

Orange Is the New Wine sustainability is one of the reasons this style of wine is catching on

hy are you hearing so much about orange wine? Because sustainability, organics, biodiversity— W buzzwords in the food world—are extending into your wine

glass. Soon you’ll be hearing guests at restaurants asking the sommelier how the grapes were grown, in addition to asking the waiter whether the chicken is organic. “Natural” wine, as it’s commonly known, refers to a subset of wines produced with minimal intervention from the maker. Within that category is orange wine, a style gaining traction alongside natural wine, largely because much of it is made in a manner consistent with natural winemaking techniques. Those techniques usually include using organic grapes, producing wine biodynamically (in accordance with moon cycles, among other rules), or adding nothing to the grapes in the production process: only using naturally occurring sulfites and sugars, for example. It isn’t that all orange wines are sustainably produced, but most orange wines tend to be natural because the process is more hands-off. Orange-wine producers are very interested in terroir and the true, authentic flavors of the grape. The whole grape.


No, it isn’t wine made with oranges. And no, there’s no such thing as orange grapes. “In a nutshell, it’s white wine made like red wine,” explains Doreen Winkler, a New York–based sommelier who specializes in orange wines. “It’s white wine on the skins.” When red-wine grapes are fermented— the first step in making wine—they are left with the skins on. In contrast, whitewine grapes are pressed first, removing the skins and stems and leaving only the juice. When orange wine is made, white-wine grapes are fermented with the skin on. For this reason, some winemakers, sommeliers, and wine professionals prefer to call orange wine “skin-contact” wine. It’s more accurate, they argue, in regards to how it’s produced and also what the finished product looks like. Indeed, most orange wines take on an orange tint or hue because of the presence of grape skins, but the depth and intensity of color has much to do with how long the wine is fermented with the skins. This also dictates the taste and texture. Winkler adds that it “works out differently” depending on what grapes are used, too. In general, an orange wine tends to be more full-bodied than a white wine, with some tannins present. “It depends on the grape and where it’s from, but mostly I get an amazing nose full of nuts, flowers, and deep aromatics” with an orange wine, explains Winkler. “The mouthfeel is extremely soft and medium-to rich-bodied. The taste is very appealing.”

How to Drink It

Orange wine can, like all wines, be drunk on its own or with food. “On the palate, they [orange wines] are dry and big, and even have tannin like a red wine,” says Leo Au, the chef sommelier (aka the head sommelier) at the Upper House in Hong Kong. “I like to pair orange wine with spicy food like curry dishes and kimchi,” he says. Winkler, who recently created an all-natural wine list for an Indian restaurant in New York, and created the all-natural wine program for the Michelin-starred restaurant Aska when it opened in New York in 2013, suggests pairing orange wine with pork chops with grilled peaches, barbecued meats and vegetables, and washed-rind cheeses.

Aarón Sánchez’s Favorite Cookbooks The celebrity chef and TV judge looks for traditional recipes with personal touches t’s easy to spot Aarón Sánchez these days—with the celebrity chef appearing on television, in the kitchens of restaurants in INew Orleans and New York, as well as on bookshelves.

The MasterChef judge’s first memoir, Where I Come From: Life Lessons From a Latino Chef, was released on Oct. 1, and details how he came to be so ubiquitous. There are 11 recipes included “that really illuminate the times in my life that made a big difference,” he says. “I want people to understand that my particular interests and likes are diverse.” Sánchez, 43, opened his first restaurant, Paladar, in 1999 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He’s also the owner and chef at Johnny Sánchez, a Mexican restaurant in New Orleans. He prefers to stick to traditional cultural dishes, adding his own contemporary techniques. And when he turns to other chefs for inspiration, he looks for cookbooks with a personal touch, too. Here are some of his favorites.

1 Whole Hog BBQ by Sam Jones

“I really love Sam Jones, the great barbecue master from North Carolina. The idea is sometimes people feel intimidated about cooking the whole hog, and I think Sam does a really good job of making it very straightforward— really sort of insightful and easy to do. The idea of smoking hogs and getting all the best parts of it I think is really amazing.” 2 Buttermilk Graffiti by Edward Lee

3 Genuine Pizza by Michael Schwartz

“Michael Schwartz did this unbelievable book that talks about pizza and demystifies how hard it is to make pizza. He’s doing a really good job of making pizzas in a way that is very accessible to families, and I really love what he’s doing—talking about pizza doughs, how to do the step-by-step, then building pies based on what you love.” 4 The Power of Sprinkles by Amirah Kassem

“Amirah is actually from my hometown of El Paso, Texas. She’s really cool,

and she’s put a lot of fun into making cakes. Kind of what [Milk Bar founder] Christina Tosi has done—doing a lot of fun, new innovative stuff that’s playful. Serious, but also super fun. So I’m really in love with The Power of Sprinkles.” 5 Aloha Kitchen by Alana Kysar

“I do a lot of events in Maui and Oahu—I’m just a big fan of the islands. This book encompasses the traditional stuff but also brings to life a lot of the things ... that might seem a little bit foreign to people. This book does a good job of demystifying all of that and making these Hawaiian recipes really sing. You don’t have to be on the islands to cook that food.”

Top: Gabrielle Geiselman

“This book is really his journey of meeting folks in the Appalachian Mountains, cooking food, and having really good stories. While the stories

have recipes behind them, it’s more about the experience.”

the discovery of glass remnants in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. But today, hand-blown glass is on trend and treated as art. Some glass artisans create one-of-a-kind works, and interior designers often commission them to craft pieces for their clients. “We tend to use hand-blown glass as accessories, votive candles, glassware, pitchers, vases,” says interior designer Michael Violante, principal and partner of V&R Interiors in Santa Fe, N.M. He and his partner, Paul Rochford, have selected hand-blown lighting fixtures for clients that were “absolutely gorgeous” and unlike any other. “If you want a focal point, hand-blown glass lighting can accomplish a lot in terms of upping your decor,” Violante says. Rochford says hand-blown glass creates visual interest in a room. “So many elements in decor are geometric, and hand-blown glass is free-form,” he explains. “So every piece, no matter how small or what it is used for, becomes a piece of art.” Glass blower Paul Arnhold, who’s based in Brooklyn, N.Y., takes his inspiration from classic silhouettes but adds his own twist. “I want each piece to be something I’ve never seen before,” he says. “My best-selling glass is bold and statement-making—playful shapes with interesting color combinations.” Often his work is utilitarian. “You can take a wavy bowl off the coffee table, fill it with crushed ice, and use it to serve caviar,” Arnhold explains. “Or you can

fill a vessel with freshly cut flowers.” Unlike mass-produced items, handblown glass is irresistibly imperfect. “The mark of the hand is what we are always drawn to,” says architectturned-lighting-designer Alison Berger of Alison Berger Glassworks in Los Angeles. She explains that individuals are naturally attracted to the fluidity, irregularity, and flaws of hand-blown glass. “It’s a subconscious draw,” she says. “When you realize that something is made by hand, the piece just feels different.” Berger designs and fabricates high-end lighting fixtures and accessories sold to designers and architects. She employs age-old glass-blowing techniques when creating her art-like pieces—such as the Word Pendant, etched with the writings of Leonardo da Vinci. Each fixture is meant to be layered in a room and take on a sculptural quality rather than act as the primary source of light. “The work we do is electric candlelight,” she says. Beyond pendants, sconces, and chandeliers, Berger offers decorative objects and furniture. Clients use these collectible hand-blown pieces in nearly every room, including libraries, stairwells, and even kids’ rooms. To tell whether an item is handblown, look for tiny bubbles and imperfections. Even the most precious piece might not be entirely symmetrical—and that’s essential to its allure. “In a world of uniformity, there’s something really beautiful in knowing that something was handcrafted,” Berger says. “It’s unique because of that. That elevates the piece. That elevates the story.”

Regal Rugs Ben Soleimani’s “attainable luxury” cuts out the middleman

Ben Soleimani (4)

esigner Ben Soleimani’s goal for his textile company is an impressive D one: to offer “revolutionary pricing for

Ben Soleimani’s rugs are inspired by nature, travel, and contemporary art.

the quality of the design.” After years of designing for others, he decided it was time to create his own brand, launching the eponymous Ben Soleimani line in February 2019. “I saw an opportunity in the market to bring design-center quality directly to consumers at unprecedented pricing,” he says. And it was a business with which he was very familiar. A fourth-generation designer and purveyor, Soleimani’s family owns Mansour, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious antique rug dealers (they have a royal warrant from the Prince of Wales, which means they’ve designed for the royal family). So growing up, Soleimani’s world was fibers, textures, and weaves. Born in Iran and raised in London, he was already drawing designs at the tender age of 7 to pass the time at school; by 8, he could identify any rug by origin. As a young man, Soleimani, 47, opened an outpost of Mansour in the U.S. and ran the business for decades before leaving to partner with Restoration Hardware, where he launched a collection in 2010. Now, Soleimani’s new direct-toconsumer business sells superior-quality rugs, pillows, and throws without going through a middleman or compromising on quality. His company is the source, enabling him to keep costs down—his rugs range from $445 to $2,595. He also offers special pricing to industry professionals through a dedicated trade program.

Based in both Los Angeles and London, the company produces designs that are “modern, but timeless and practical,” Soleimani says. “I stick to a neutral palette most of the time. I want my offerings to be as beautiful today as they will be decades from now.” Soleimani’s inspiration comes from “nature, travel, contemporary art, and the seemingly mundane, like the patina of a weathered wall, or the way the sand is shaped by the water,” he says. And his approach to design is rather minimalist: “I take all my inspiration and knowledge of an item and try to translate it into something that is vastly simplified. I appreciate traditional design, the care and quality, but I lean toward the simple and beautiful. I redefine and simplify—it is one of my signatures,” Soleimani says. For his creations, Soleimani works with a wide variety of materials, including wool, silk, wood, stone, brass, leather, and linen, all of which he sources himself. His rugs often take months to make, since they are handwoven by expert artisans. Styles include contemporary, traditional, Moroccan, indoor/outdoor, and flat-weave designs. While right now the business is only online, there are plans to open brick-and-mortar stores in key cities across the country in the near future. But first, Soleimani is focusing on the launch of his furniture collection. “The offerings are contemporary, with natural materials, good lines, and attention to detail,” he says. “It’s both your foundation pieces and designs that are showstoppers.” 63

Integrated Architecture and Construction


By Polhemus Savery DaSilva

olhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders (PSD) has spent over two decades designing and building beautiful custom homes throughout southeastern New England. As a fully integrated architecture, construction, landscape architecture, and property services firm, PSD collaborates closely with clients to create timeless and character-filled homes that work for the way each client lives now, are adaptable for the future, and remain beloved for generations

to come. Featured here is “Sundowner,” a home with broad flat columns, big overhangs, crisp triangular roof shapes, window sizes ranging from extra small to extra large, fat window muntins, and a flaring copper chimney cap, all which give it the iconic character of “home” that a child’s drawing might evoke. Slight exaggeration combined with traditional forms makes the house feel familiar but different; timeless but fresh and unexpected; inviting but bold. Featured opposite is “North-by-Northeast,” a home that sits on a bluff at a point where the highland bends, creating a promontory from which much of the several square mile Nauset marsh, dune, and beach system can be seen. Spectacular views span from northwest to southeast, although the bend in the shoreline created a triangular lot with planning challenges. Turning challenges into design opportunities, a robust home was created that acts as a knuckle, maximizing frontage to the wrap-around view and taking full advantage of the high plateau above the beloved beach and ocean. As special as the homes PSD creates is their highly collaborative process. A leading integrated firm in the area, the team provides a turn-key approach that seamlessly connects architecture and construction, ensuring single-source accountability and creative continuity from inception to completion. From site selection to architectural design to building construction and detailed handwork, PSD shepherds every project via a carefully coordinated process. The team emphasizes clear, direct communication to keep clients engaged and excited, alerts them as decisions are needed, and shares progress at every step. The contentiousness and uncertainty that often characterizes home design and construction is gone. In response to the demand for information and clarity, PSD shares a project management system with their clients. “They share our screen and can see it from anywhere,” Aaron Polhemus, PSD President & CEO says. “It gives the client full transparency and visibility and it streamlines the process with multiple points of contact. It forces everyone to stay on track.” PSD’s main office is located in East Harwich, on Cape Cod and their satellite office is located in Hingham, on the South Shore.
