SOUTHERN COASTAL LIVING and colour, among other essential design considerations. She shares her gracious hospitality and invites readers into her life and home. ‘I wrote this book for many reasons,’ said Joni. ‘Mostly, I wanted to share my philosophy of luxury without pretense. For me, it’s all about how we use space vs. how we see it. Of course I want the homes and resorts I design to look beautiful, but they won’t actually be or feel beautiful if I haven’t understood and then planned for how people will live in and use each space. That’s what creates comfort in my view.’ ‘Where will people sit and read? What and where will the conversation areas be? How is the view incorporated into the room? How do the indoor and outdoor spaces relate to one another? These, to me, are the basics of comfort. ‘Then I look for luxury products that are user friendly because I want to create a relaxed, easy atmosphere. Now that there are luxury fabrics that actually wear well, I look for beautiful fabrics, especially upholstery fabrics, that allow us to put our feet up on the furniture. Fabrics need to be able to stand up to the daily wear of wet bathing suits and sandy feet of children, their friends and pets, so performance fabrics come in very handy. Furnishings, and seating especially, should be comfortable for lounging, for flopping and for those naps that you can only take when you’re on holiday.’

Joni Vanderslice invites us into her life and home in her new book which is packed full of beautiful photographs and design advice

Joni Vanderslice, ASID, president and owner of J

Banks Design, founded her multidiscipline design firm 30 years ago. Since then, she has nurtured the Hilton Head Island–based operation into an internationally recognized force in residential and resort design. Through the years, J Banks Design has received

Southern Coastal Living

For more than three decades, Joni Vanderslice has led J Banks Design, her Hilton Head Island, South Carolina based firm, to national and international scale and is renown in hospitality and residential design. In Southern Coastal Living, she tells her story by touring readers through southern coastal homes that showcase her design philosophy of luxury without pretense. With inspiring interior and exterior vistas that establish a sense of place, the homes she designs embrace families and guests alike. Welcoming, stylish and comfortable, each residence expresses the distinctive personality of its owners while radiating the relaxed elegance of the region’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Her stylistic range includes ever-fresh blue-and-white palettes that mirror the coastal waters and sky; vibrant hues that complement the region’s light; and equestrian motifs and themes from nature that are true to the locale. In inviting living rooms, gracious dining areas and kitchens that are the heart of the house, casual family rooms, and elegantly relaxed outdoor settings from veranda to poolside and dock, she layers the elements of design to tell her clients’ stories. She explains her approach to artwork and collectibles, texture, lighting

Southern Coastal Living is published by Gibbs Smith (www.gibbs-smith.com)

J Banks Design Group to national and international renown in hospitality and residential design. In this, her first

monograph, she tells her story and features homes that each radiate their own statement of southern coastal style.

Joni’s “luxury without pretense” philosophy is show-

cased in residential resort homes on and near Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Designed to feature the inspiring vistas from both inside and outside the home, these resi-

dences create relaxed indoor/outdoor living for families and guests alike.

A variety of styles includes the classic blue-and-white theme that simulates the coastal waters and sky; rich,

vibrant hues that respond to the natural bright light; equestrian themes; and lush private spaces that promote relaxation. There are kitchens and family rooms and men’s

spaces, where hobby accoutrements are part of the décor, as well as outdoor settings around poolsides, verandas, and docks.

Vanderslice also shares more than her philosophy on displaying artwork and collectibles, incorporating texture,

choosing lighting, and color, among other essential design

considerations: she also shares her gracious southern hospitality and welcomes readers into her life and home.

MAKING A HOME PERSONAL I like to collect and surround myself with objects that reflect my taste, my interests and life - they make me feel comfortable

P

eople who lack confidence in their own taste are often influenced far too much by show homes, interior magazines and hotels, which are designed to appeal to as many people as possible. They end up with homes which are soulless, bland and devoid of personal expression. I like to collect and surround myself with objects that reflect my taste, my interests and my life - things which describe who I am and where I have come from - whether they are good or bad, stylish or kitsch. They make me feel comfortable. So I try to do the same for my clients. I take them on a journey, stretch their imagination, expose them to new ideas and get them to think about what is possible in different ways. In turn, I want to learn from them and understand their experiences and what makes them tick. Then I can respond to their ideas and needs in a genuinely personal way.  I once knew a designer who allowed the client to bring nothing but his clothes to his new house and within a year he had moved, as it never felt like home. However beautiful a house may be, if a client does not enjoy living in it, then the design is a failure. I prefer to work very closely with clients and slowly build up a sense of what they like. Starting points can often be quite obscure. A project may evolve from a favourite piece of furniture or a painting, but it is the layout which is the most important decision. Understanding how the client lives and wants to use the house can lead to quite an unusual layout. We are currently designing an upsidedown house - the top floor has the most magnificent views over the garden of a London square. It is the obvious place to live, so a lift is essential - and a big one, not a vertical coffin. The lift has been designed

Mike Fisher, Studio Indigo Founder and Creative Director T: + 44 (0) 207 349 1290 www.studioindigo.co.uk

as a mini art gallery with precious and beautiful art and materials which benefit from being seen close up. The lift is also largely made of glass, so you are always aware of where you are in the building. I am working on another project where I have to adhere to the principles of Vastu - which is a bit like the Hindu equivalent of Feng Shui. Its rules throw up all sorts of challenges. For example, beds have to face north - even when there are wonderful southerly views. But fulfilling Vastu’s requirements also leads to unusual and imaginative solutions, making the end result feel all the more personal. One of the best ways to ensure a house feel like home is to take the client on a trip - Italian marble yards are usually a great success. It often works out that the marbles you had in mind are discounted when the client sees fossilised timber, beautiful onyx and a whole range of startling marbles in daring colours. But that is what it is all about and a hard day’s work is rewarded with a delicious plate of pasta and some good Chianti. Sometimes it is necessary to travel further afield - hunting for beautiful semi-precious stones in India for a unique master bathroom. The world is our market place so we like to show people a range of things which are new, exciting. I always enjoy taking clients to our favourite fabric houses - Rubelli, Pierre Frey and Alton Brooks, for example. We ask them to wander around and pick out any fabrics they like. It doesn’t take long for a colour scheme to emerge and, with a bit of skill, their choices can be turned into a coherent scheme quite easily. At the end of a project we often have a pair of slippers made in a client’s favourite fabric - just as a bit of fun.

TAKE THE TREND TEST If something is truly classic, its popularity will resurface time and time again

A

s we toured the Sutton Place, a New York City apartment my client recently purchased from an estate sale, my very young associate sniffed, “this looks so dated.” I agreed with her, but I remembered that mitered mylar wallpapers were all the rage, along with hugely graphic black and white porcelain floors, not so long ago. I suspect my 21st century, stylish associate was unaware of the pervasive influence of Angelo Donghia as far back as the 1960s. “What were they thinking?” she said as her eyes caught the over-scaled, taupe, faux-bamboo bookcase. “And this ditsy little flowered print in the kitchen, can you believe it?” she gaped - a favourite of Sister Parish Designs. Her youthful incredulity at these iconic examples of the past only reminded me how rapidly the fashion for interior design changes, just as the fashion in clothing mutates by the day. So we spoke of these various influences as we walked through the apartment’s time warp. We talked of the influence of Angelo Donghia and how his broad-strokes glamour appealed to the 70s bold, graphic sensibility. We spoke of Baldwin’s love of chinoiserie and how that bit of exoticism appealed to a generation cleaning off the cobwebs of staid, formal rooms. And we talked about Sister Parish’s country house kinship, where chintzy fabrics, quilts and cotton plaids de-stuffed a generation yearning for pretty. As we walked out of the apartment, we reminisced about this year’s trends and influences on design. What seems so current, trendy, chic, hip and irresistibly fashionable and appealing now that might render a home or apartment dated in the future? The first word out of both our mouths was “grey!” It is not simply the movie and its many shades; this colour has infiltrated everything from fabrics to finishes to stone selections. I recently wandered through a fabulous stone yard, and a third of the stone imports were some variation on the theme of grey. While other manufacturers seem to be reinventing the wheel, there are some so innovative, who capture the imagination of the design world so intensely, they raise up the whole genre. Phillip Jeffries’

creative take on grasscloth, for instance, has spawned a burgeoning industry. So hot is the demand for this wallcovering, and so intense is the love of this texture, that designers can’t hold at only hanging it on their walls. Now, they are also wrapping chests of drawers, bedside tables, and consoles with grasscloth. 2016 will be noted for its embrace of Southeast Asian and Indian embroideries so complex, so elaborate and so affordable that one would think we had returned to the Gilded Age. Notable has been the revival of Chinese hand-painted murals lining the walls of entryways, dining rooms and parlors. Their elegant figures of brides, bamboo, Chinese landscapes and tea houses have even made their way back to the forefront of the fabric world, printed on curtain-worthy cottons - a highly elegant and romantic alternative to the world of sharper geometrics. If you are in the market for a standing tub, they have never been more available than now. It is not simply the exquisite designs created by English, French and Italian companies but American companies, such as American Standard and Kohler, are creating gorgeous pieces as well. Some trends find a quick denouement. The carpet industry has gone gaga for splatter-art rugs with massive, messy, spotted repeats that may mimic, but certainly won’t endure compared to the bookmatched marble masterpieces. So the upshot of my conversation with my associate was a teaching moment for both of us. We, as designers and interior aficionados, have an up-to-date vision that we always try to keep current. If something is truly classic, its popularity will resurface time and time again. However, with social media making things more visible and attainable, these newer trends tend to come in and out of fashion more rapidly than ever, making it almost impossible to get ahead of the curve. I am fairly certain that the designer who created the apartment we are now gutting considered his/her work timeless. And we also consider our work timeless, though I suppose it’s only until the next gut job occurs. Perhaps we should simply do the best work we can to enjoy and celebrate the moment in time.

TANGIBLE CHARACTER Michael Amato says that when it comes to fine design, it’s what it’s made of that counts

T

he modern eye doesn’t have to go far for inspiration. With the touch of a finger, our smart phones can transport us to faraway worlds and back again in mere moments. While platforms like Instagram are effective tools for sharing inspiration, differentiation in design becomes more crucial in order to stand out in a sea of posts and hashtags. In this visually oversaturated market, using dynamic materials that tell a story in a unique way is crucial when it comes to creating an impactful product. Ultimately, interior designers and consumers look for quality, creativity and personality in furnishings. To stand out in all three categories, it’s necessary for product designers to explore unique materials that ultimately define how a fixture takes place. I’ve seen a resurgence of high-quality, natural materials being used in design. Brass, once a thing of the 1970s, is on its way back in a big way. In home décor, it’s being used in its natural form, not just coated or plated. It can be hewn or polished, and I think that versatility, along with its durability, adds to its appeal. Marble, once reserved for floors and countertops, is now being used as an accent. More frequently I see fixtures where stone is used as an accent. The design aesthetic of a product can be heightened by the mixing of different materials. For example, antique brass can be combined with mirrored glass and tell a completely different story than if it was paired with say, British leather. Thinking limitlessly about mixing materials is a way to ensure constant design innovation. Admirable design pioneers like Milo Baughman and Hans Wegner are premier examples of this approach. In today’s landscape, the reappearance of copper is notable, but what’s more significant is how it’s mixed with other materials like glass or marble. There are a lot of designers I admire who are mixing materials and have helped shape the current design landscape. I’m a big fan of French-American industrial

designer Raymond Loewy, who made incredible design innovation contributions across various industries. His “nolimits” approach to design exists in today’s environment still. In present day, Alessandro Michelle, creative director at Gucci, is a great example of an artist who is creating products with mixed materials. I just saw some amazing Gucci handbags he designed that were leather and needlepoint. Another design trend becoming increasingly important is the ability for a product to tell a compelling design story, and the sourcing of materials comes into play here. I was introduced to a company in Tuscany where fourth and fifth generation glassmakers make glass the old fashioned way. When a client has their glass in their home, they are not only preserving a centuries-old art form, but they are able to feel personally connected to a special family tradition. The origin of that material adds an intimate storytelling component that goes beyond form or function. It’s personal. The impact materiality has on product is both practical and visual. To an educated, design-savvy eye, well-sourced materials look fundamentally better than those that are mass-produced. Sometimes I have to educate my clients about the importance of well-sourced materials, but once they understand that natural materials tend to have a better lifespan, they understand the value and want the best resources from the best source. At the end of the day, people’s homes are personal, and the pieces they invest in to put in them should be too. I hope that manufacturers and customers alike will continue to place emphasis on origin and materiality. I travel frequently and when I do, I am constantly gathering inspiration for new lighting fixtures. I’m very pleased that there is no lack of creativity around the globe, past or present.

LUXURIOUS FINISHES A fresh look is necessary in a world that is driven by a desire to reinvent itself says Simon Orrell

W

hat makes one interior distinct from another is the clever curating by an interior designer of colours, textures, materials and styles to create something that suits the client and their architectural space. Handmade finishes have a huge role to play in that process and can help the design professional achieve a truly original look. Included in the armoury of finishes that a design professional should have at his fingertips are a number of handmade surfaces that can be applied not just to furniture and accessories, but also to wall finishes and other architectural elements. Shell, shagreen, straw marquetry, mica, parchment, gesso and cracked eggshell offer distinctive effects and are expensive enough to avoid becoming too mainstream. At the highest end of interior design, there’s a lot of interest at the moment in different shells – kabebe, black lip, mother of pearl, hammershell, tiger brown lip and cowrie to name just a few. Shell offers lustre that makes it very attractive and opulent, but also offers variety since different shells lend themselves to different treatments. Cowrie, for example, can look spotted like a leopard but sand it flat and the surface metamorphoses into a veiny pink marble. Black lip shell is very exotic and sophisticated. Straw marquetry is going to be more popular as people get to know about it. Straw work is not on a lot of designers’ radar at the moment, but those that are using it are loving its intricate patterns and its sheen nonetheleast because it feeds into the revival of 1930s finishes. As a raw material it may sound humble, but with painstaking work it can be magnificently transformed. Its shimmering surface is remarkable and the pattern moves as it catches the light. A sunburst motif or any design going in different directions has such dynamism.

And straw marquetry is never going to be a mass-market finish because it’s so hard to do, so its inevitable rarity will preserve its originality. Mica is another alluring material sometimes seen as a veneer in ultra-expensive refurbs. It was used by the ancient Egyptians to make mirrors and seen on a luxe desk once belonging to style arbitrators Pierre Berge and Yves St Laurent. A type of mineral composed of aluminium silicate, micas can be split into very thin sheets and are prized for their metallic sheen. Multi-layered and resembling filo pastry, the layers come in tones of brown, grey, silver and gold and are ideal for vertical surfaces such as walls, mirrors or cabinet door fronts that aren’t exposed to regular traffic. Shagreen enjoys steady interest and is loved for its texture. Made from the skin of rays, the surface is very grainy because of the spines or papillae and when ground down and polished, the nodules provide contrast. This surface is superb in its natural form and makes any neutral scheme interesting but can also be effectively treated and coloured. Finishes are vital when it comes to offering the design industry a fresh look, which is necessary in a world that is driven by a desire to reinvent itself. Scagliola, a composite of plaster, glue and pigments that successfully imitates marble, is a material we are experimenting a lot with along with Selenite. Selenite, wands of crystal made from gypsum, is another new surface for us that could prove to be exciting. We’ve just made four drum tables for a client in Riyad that have a luxurious milky finish reminiscent of rock crystal. We love it when experiments can be translated into exceptional pieces of furniture. It makes design so much fun!

nterior Designer, Erik Galiana, was tasked with the project of turning this classic New York Fifth Avenue two-bedroomed apartment into a modern and contemporary space. The family has homes in London, India and San Francisco, but were wanting a base in New York where both their children are currently studying - to feel like home when they increasingly spent time in the city. The 1,276sqft apartment is built with classic New York pre-war architecture, and it was important to the clients to keep the aesthetic of the building whilst simultaneously modernising the interior in a sympathetic manner. Having previously worked with the couple on a previous home, Galiana had a firm

relationship built up and was able to utilise that to meet their exact design needs without compromising on a style that was befitting of the apartment. As well as incorporating a lot of furniture from their previous, new construction property, Galiana integrated lots of new pieces and accessories to give the apartment a fresh new feel and capitalise on the sleek look. A beautiful dark wood herringbone floor throughout this apartment gives a rich tone and the walls have been painted a variety of neutral tones to complement this and allow the artwork and furniture to stand out.The entrance hall displays opera posters in frames for a striking red accent on the walls, and a central circular hall table holds a vase of lillies for further colour.

OPPOSITE: The grand entrance hall to this pied Ă terre features a rich dark-wood floor, and neutral tones on the walls. An accent of red is added by the framing of Opera posters on the wall, and a door leads off to the equally elegant kitchen area. ABOVE: The dining room has a glass table and console table to keep the room light and airy and maximise the view of the wooden floor. Abstract art adds interest to the classically elegant half panelled walls.

A large geometric print rug adds texture, and dark red cushions and throws add colour to the space. RIGHT: The elegantly simple master bedroom is dominated by a large bed with an oversized cream leather headboard. Texture is added by a large soft grey rug and a variety of throws and cushions. Â

The dining room benefits from white wood panelling on the bottom half of the walls, and a glass dining table (and accompanying chairs were designed by Thomas Faulkner) allows full view of the opulent floor below. Thin backed chairs and a console table complete the room, whilst a variety of abstract artworks adorn the walls giving a pop of colour. The living room is a mostly monochrome space with a large geometric print grey rug and grey sofas and footstools. A glass computer table to one side provides an area for working, and a splash of colour is added with dark red throws and cushions. The walls feature a collection of black and white images of famous American stars in keeping with the New York location. The master bedroom is dominated by a grand bed with an opulent padded cream leather headboard. Texture and interest is added with a collection of throws and soft cushions in a variety of styles, and a soft grey rug gives an additional warmth to the floor. Matching bedside tables with large cream lamps complete the elegant look and the New York views are evident from the window. The whole apartment is a triumph of understated sleekness and is elegant in its simplicity. It has a definite home from home feel for the clients when they are visiting the city and is finished to the immaculate high standard that Galiana is renowned for.

AVENUE MARCEAU This stunning apartment is a work of art from start to finish and has all the hallmarks of a Gérard Faivre classic home WORDS KATY BRISCOE | PHOTOGRAPHS MATHIEU FIOL


G

érard Faivre describes himself as ‘neither architect, neither decorator, nor real-estate professional’, yet without doubt he is a virtuoso of metamorphosis who gives a contemporary feel to properties that are full of history. This stunning apartment is a work of art from start to finish, and has all the hallmarks of a Faivre classic home. From the moment you step into the grand entrance hall, the tone of the property is set with its beautiful original parquet flooring, subtle grey walls and the statement ceiling painted with a metallic sky motif that is evident throughout the building. Hanging from this artistic centre piece of ceiling is a series of stainless steel pendant lights from

Tom Dixon – just one of the many incredible feature lights that make such a bold statement in every room. Moving on to the living room, the stunning silver sky effect on the ceiling is echoed in a blue rug which also swirls with drama with a marbling effect which ties it in beautifully to the grand original marble fireplace dominating the mirrored wall. Oversized grey sofas provide a seating area for many, whilst the theatrical and slightly Dali-esque ‘Melt Chrome’ and ‘Mini Melt Gold’ pendant lights create a unique talking point whilst brilliantly lighting the space. Above the fireplace, bronze sculptures by Arnaud Kasper add to the playful feel of the room. A second sitting room is dominated by a fantastical chandelier by Christine Rouvière for the Cinabre

FRONT: The grand living room is theatrical and unique - from the unusual and slightly Dali-esque ‘Melt Chrome’ and ‘Mini Melt Gold’ pendant lighting hanging from the stunning cloudy silver sky painted ceiling, to the molten marble swirled blue rug below. The whole room has a playful and sculptural feel to the design. ABOVE: More stunning pendant lights dominate the dining room which is given extra depth and perspective with a wall of mirrors running alongside the table. Stunning grey silk print dining chairs add an informal feel to the contemporary dining area which is dressed with metallics.

Gallery Paris. This contemporary creation, made with raw materials and precious metals, is inspired by the relief of the Moon and other planets. Looking right at home against the silver cloud design upon the ceiling, it gives the whole room a celestial quality and ‘other-worldliness’. An impressive amount of seating sits upon another bold rug design. The theme of mirrors and dramatic lighting is continued in the dining room which features a whole wall of mirrors to double the perceived space. The glass dining table keeps the feeling of infinity within the room that Faivre was trying to achieve and allows a full view of yet more art on the floor with another swirling blue pattern. The bedrooms are a slightly calmer take on the same theme - with the original parquet floor continuing throughout and the same neutral tones of greys and silvers used in the décor. Clever use of wall lights and lamps give the room a cosy feel and the use of many layers and textures on the bed makes it feel very inviting. Gérard describes his work as the most satisfying vocation there is. ‘The happiness I feel in undertaking and finishing each project is a concrete, tangible pleasure which visitors can feel when they enter the main gate of the property. The decision to buy comes quickly. One falls in love with a house immediately, passionately or not at all.’

ABOVE: Simple textures of grey make this bedroom a simple and elegant space and the simple palette on the walls allows the artwork to stand out and draw the eye in.

he perfect bath. These three words conjure up an irresistible, timeless vision of relaxation, reflection and restoration. Every other room in a house has multiple uses and functions. The bath is the only space in your home that is all about you - a highly personalised domain that, in addition to being part of life’s daily routine, serves as a private retreat. In The Perfect Bath, Barbara Sallick, co-founder of Waterworks, blogger and life-long design devotee explores the process of designing a dream bathroom in great detail alongside beautiful images. Sallick, who has been hailed as the ‘grand dame of bathroom design,’ stresses that today’s bath is an expression of personal style whether you call it your sanctuary, retreat, oasis or spa. She suggests that perhaps no room in the house requires as much planning as the bath complete with a checklist of all the questions you should ask yourself about functionality, plumbing infrastructure, lighting, comfort factors and storage. She then creates a blank canvas for the room covering colour, materials, surfaces, as well as balance, scale and proportion. Barbara shares exceptional case studies and talks with seven of today’s top designers and architects including Suzanne Lovell, Pamela Shamshiri,Thomas O’Brien, Lee Mindel, Gil Schafer, Tim Clarke and Steven Gambrel. Creating the perfect bath is one of the most important aspects of a renovation or new home construction. The Perfect Bath is sure to not only be a visual treat for readers, but will also become an essential, lasting resource of inspiration.

GIDEON’S BIBLE Despite not always following standard rules of design, this home captures the Hamptons spirit WORDS MINDY PANTIEL | PHOTOGRAPHS ERIC PIASECKI


FRONT: In the living room, matching custom sofas by Mendelson are covered in a Rogers & Goffigon linen. OPPOSITE: In the octagonal home office, a Sputnik chandelier hangs above custom built-in furniture. LEFT: Custom curved benches in a Gastón y Daniela fabric surround a Lee Jofa table in the library.

ideon Mendelson didn’t ‘get’ the Hamptons when he was a young man growing up in Wetchester County. ‘All I saw was what the media told us about the allocation and phoniness,’ he says. ‘But my father really loved it here and he and my mother rented homes in a variety of locales every Summer. He taught me it wasn’t about the shops and movie stars, but rather the community of people who love this life.’ That version of the Hamptons is what the interior designer and his partner sought for their own family, including their 19-month-old son, Owen. Hoping for a home with a sense of history, the couple toured 35 properties before determining that classic cottages were just too small to accommodate routine weekend visits from extended family and

friends. With family taking precedence, they opted for a spec home in Sagaponack with a typical shingle style exterior and 5,000 square feet rooms in need of personality. ‘The challenge of spec houses is that they are built without furnishings in mind,’ says Mendelson, who has degrees from Columbia University (architecture) and the New York School of Design. ‘The scale of the rooms was large, so my goal was to make it feel as personal as possible. I also saw it as an opportunity to show how different design styles and periods could live together.’ His first furniture pick – a 19th century coffee table with a walnut plank top on a new wood base, established his penchant for merging old with new. Mendelson followed up by topping the living room’s formal fireplace


RIGHT: Colour and pattern play a major role in cosying up the bedroom and making it feel comfortable. Playing with various prints within the theme of the sandy creams and sea blues colour scheme of this house has given this room a soft and interesting feel that keeps the eye moving around the space.

mantel with a contemporary convex mirror by Hervé Van der Straeren. The theme continues in the kitchen, where an uber modern David Weeks lighting fixture is suspended over a kitchen table surrounded by reproduction Edward Wormley chairs from the 1950s. ‘Whether you put one modern piece in a traditional room or the reverse, it’s the eclecticism that keeps it fresh,’ he says. Mendelson’s distinctive style is about much more than pairing individual pieces – it’s about creating ensembles that embody a sense of comfort and surprise. ‘ We all have an aesthetic vocabulary we grew up with that’s familiar,’ he says. ‘But it’s the unexpected choices that give you something new to experience every time you

enter these rooms.’ In the entry, where traditional Demilune tables complement grasscloth covered walls, it’s the Carlo Scarpa Italian glass lighting fixture that delivers the unpredictable punch. Throughout the house, Mendelson strikes a balance between the expected – slopearmed sofas topped with nubby linen in the living room – and unexpected, like snakeskin on the library ceiling and a Sputnik light fixture in the home office. While at Columbia, Mendelson also studied film and the cinematic influence is obvious in the way he composes a space. ‘ I am very conscious of how things

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Outdoor dining has its very own space with this beautiful covered wooden decked area with rattan chairs and a long dining table decorated to pick up the blues and greens of the landscaped pool area beyond. Making the most of every space, this delightful nook has been transformed into useful storage space with a bench seat and numerous hooks for bags and hats. The whole house has been themed around a ‘Hamptons’ palette of sandy creams and sea blues giving a uniformity to the space, and really dragging the outside colours in to the rooms. Artwork that ties in to the scheme has been cleverly chosen to hang on the walls and smaller objets d’art are displayed in clever ways such as on this unique set of tables.

are framed,’ says the designer who placed an Elger Esser photograph on the living room wall to bring out the chartreuse in a wide-striped settee, and added a multilevel lacquered and bronze coffee table that almost seems to dance across the space. In some areas of the house, the stereotypical Hamptons beachy blues and sandy creams take a detour, thanks to Mendelson’s slightly unconventional style. The office wallpaper for instance sports a bold turquoise stripe, while the zebra-print staircase runner is olive. Colour and pattern also play a major role in cosying up the expansive master bedroom. ‘It’s difficult to make rooms this big feel comfortable,’ says the designer, who added seating at the end of the four-poster bed to scale things down. ‘Playing with various stripes on the chaise and drapes keeps the eye moving around the room in different ways, and the chairs are also the perfect height for a climbing station for Owen.’ Despite not always following standard rules of design, Mendelson’s home captures the Hamptons spirit, and more important, is a place his late father would have loved. ‘As a whole, there’s something comfortable about it,’ he says. ‘You might not understand everything at first but it feels like you’ve been here before. It all feels like home.’

DESIGN PROJECT

TAYLOR HOWES

Celebrating the essence of Mediterranean living in a chic holiday home in South France

WORDS KATY BRISCOE | PHOTOGRAPHS TOM SULLAM


T

aylor Howes lends its impeccable design flair to this exciting project - furnishing a stunning 10,000 sqft villa near Mougins in the South of France. Built in extensive grounds incorporating a football pitch, tennis courts, vineyard and a hotel sized swimming pool, there is no better place to escape the relentless noise of the city than this restful holiday home. Preferring a French provincial style, the fantastic light quality in the South of France lends itself to pastel tones and soft linens, with joinery pieces in pale oak and whitewashed timbers to encapsulate relaxed Mediterranean elegance.

Interior design was placed in the capable hands of Taylor Howes, whose project portfolio runs from private residences and boutique hotels to luxurious show homes. Taylor Howes’ brief was simple. ‘The clients have two young boys and wanted us to create a child friendly holiday home that was in keeping with traditional French style, but with all the modern amenities,’ says Creative Director, Sandra Drechsler. ‘We have worked on two projects for them previously, both located in London, so they had complete confidence in our choices.’ The house is every inch the family home, engineered towards growing children. Beautifully

landscaped grounds alive with fragrant lavender feature an impressive swimming pool and children’s sized football pitch. Inside, a spacious ground floor playroom comes complete with a snooker table and bespoke sideboard, made with children in mind owing to its decorative handles fashioned into numbers. Proving that playrooms can also be an adult friendly space, Taylor Howes has added refined touches such as dining chairs lacquered in soft grey from Italian label Billiani and a super comfortable L-shaped sofa from London retailer Coexistence, where the family can watch television. Throughout the rest of the house, descriptors like stylish and sophisticated spring to mind thanks to tasteful furniture, luxurious fabrics from the likes of Fox Linton, Dedar and Altfield and a soothing neutral colour palette of sand

colours that echoes the tranquility of its setting. The ground floor features honed travertine flooring throughout, starting in the kitchen where a centrally located La Cornue island unit steals the limelight. The kitchen leads into a separate dining room, opening out onto a sun-drenched terrace overlooking the swimming pool. Upholstered dining chairs from Poliform’s Velvet collection soften the look of the bespoke wedge dining table, which is lit by Kevin Reilly’s spectacular Altar pendant lamp. The teal colour of the dishes hung on the back wall is picked up by the scatter cushions in the impressive reception room, where smart bespoke sofas, are clustered around a bespoke bleached oak coffee table.

natural sand colours helps make the space more welcoming, and the use of dark timbers warms it up. Sharing the ground floor is a guest suite comprising a living room, bathroom and bedroom, thoughtfully furnished with twin beds that can be pushed together or separated as desired. The talking point is a pair of Jackie bed heads by Collet Sandrine for French manufacturer, Pierre Fray, upholstered in rich aubergine linen to match the bed bases and flanked by bedside tables. The bedroom leads into the guest living area, dominated by a bespoke sofa upholstered in aqua blue linen. Continuing the coastal theme is a large shell print by Trowbridge Gallery that hangs on the wall. Upstairs is given over to a further four bedrooms, the most impressive being the master bedroom complete with a small terrace. This includes bleached oak floorboards, a bespoke bed complemented by a buttoned headboard and a bespoke sofa, made to the width of the bed. The crowning glory of this impressive house, however, is the cinema room, fitted with large, relaxing armchairs and sofa in dark tones. There is even a bar in the cinema room, propped up by bar stools, meaning that the property really does cater to the homeowners every need.

ABOVE: The family room is simply decorated in a neutral palette with soft linens and throws, and has a quirky touch with two pentagonal stools at the bespoke coffee table. The Ammonite triptych by TROWBRIDGE GALLERY hangs proudly above the sofa

CASA NUNO

A restful utopia where the clever interplay between designer pieces, items bought at flea markets and vintage Nordic furniture sets the tone for the unique villa WORDS KATY BRISCOE | PHOTOGRAPHS MONTSE GARRIGA


E

ndless views of blue skies, merging into the deep blue of the ocean, was one of the main selling points of this utopian Portuguese villa, set high up on the Alentejo coast. Although the house itself was initially architecturally poor, clothing designer Nuno Benito saw past its faults to fall in love with the privileged view of the beach and lush vegetation of the surrounding farmland. To turn this project into his ideal holiday home, he began a reformation project designed to uncover all the property’s hidden beauty, whilst playing on the strengths of its enviable views and relaxed atmosphere that the Portuguese lifestyle dictates. The main architectural changes came from

deleting partition walls to expand and integrate the kitchen and living space into a cleaner, freeflowing open plan space. Whilst raising the roof gave the impression of a double height space and opened the room further still. The original garage and office were also converted into two guest bedrooms with their own bathroom, making it ideal for holiday visitors and family. The overall design of the property has been kept light and airy with neutral walls and floors, and strong accents of colour are used sporadically throughout the rooms in vibrant statement pieces such as purple rugs and the wonderful geometric print flooring in the master bedroom. With so much natural light

FRONT: The endless views and blue sky were a main selling point for this property, which celebrates its outdoor space with a wonderful swimming pool and patio area. OPPOSITE: The guest bedroom is dominated by the bright geometric Americo rug from Carpet Diem, whilst the eclectic collection of artwork above the bed is lit by the grand Sputnik chandelier hanging from the ceiling. ABOVE: The open plan living area is a testament to Benito’s ability to mix designer pieces with vintage junk shop finds. A soft leather sofa, some chairs from the 50s, a random 1960s lamp from the former East Germany and an antique porcelain tiger all surround the low level glass coffee table.


RIGHT: The dining area adjacent to the main living space contains a large glass table and white leather upholstered dining chairs. Large windows and an oversized lighting fixture ensure the room is flooded with plenty of light at all times of day and night.

flooding through the large windows and full height glass doors, the house feels bright and warm, and there is a natural progression from indoors to the outdoors, which is a superbly furnished and inviting space designed to draw you outside to make the most of the Portuguese sunshine. The large outdoor pool is surrounded by wooden loungers typical of the region, and has quirky tree trunk tables arranged around them. Comfy homemade cushions rest on each lounger, inviting people to lay back and enjoy the endless views of countryside and beach beyond. A separate outdoor eating area is also set up with designer white Panton Vitra chairs set around a bespoke table made of boards from houses damaged by the 2004 tsunami. Huge palm trees punctuate the skyline and the views are truly breathtaking. Inside the house Benito’s eye for style, and ability to mix designer

pieces with vintage finds, is apparent throughout. The living area is dominated by a large fireplace and arranged around a low coffee table are a soft leather sofa in a burnt orange, some 50’s chairs from France, a 60’s lamp from the former East Germany and a Portuguese porcelain tiger acquired on a visit to a local antique shop. These are all set of by the vivid purple rug from the collection of Carpet Diem which adds a splash of colour to the room. The adjacent dining area is dominated by a large glass dining table, with wooden chairs upholstered in white leather. At the end of the room a matching wooden vintage dresser proudly displays designer pieces as well as antique finds, such as the Mercedes Seco lamp sitting beside an orange vase sourced from Germany.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: The bathroom is full of rustic charm with its heavily polished concrete floors and walls and the rough stone sink contrasting against the contemporary stainless steel taps and fixtures. The living area makes the most of the stunning countryside views with full height glass doors out to the pool area. The double height ceiling in the living area gives the room a grand and spacious feeling, whilst the neutral walls and light flooring keep the room bright and airy.

The bathroom is a triumphant juxtaposition of designer style and rustic charm. The walls and floor have been made from polished cement giving a smooth and light-reflective patina. Whilst on the counter top a heavy stone sink has been roughly carved to visually stand out against the contemporary stainless steel taps and shower visible behind the sleek glass divide. In the guest bedroom, the bed head wall is dominated by framed works of art giving the room an art gallery feel. The bright and geometric Americo rug from Carpet Diem dominates the floor bringing a bold splash of colour to the room. Two tables from the 1960’s that once belonged to a hotel are artfully placed either side of the bed, housing matching lamps in alternating colourways, whilst the grand Sputnik chandelier hangs above the bed to light the room. This finished project is a delightful house set within even more delightful landscape. A restful utopia where the clever interplay between designer pieces, items bought at flea markets and vintage Nordic furniture sets the tone for a truly unique villa that wonderfully sums up the tastes and styles of its owner.

BETTER IN SMALL DOSES Your surroundings should be a reflection of your life and not your recent trip to Home Goods

I

nterior designers have a love/hate relationship with trends. We are children of the 70’s and 80’s respectively so this is probably why we tend to shy away from anything ‘trendy’- too many visual scars! Although it is interesting to see gold lame coming down the runways again, we don’t generally prescribe to the practice of following trends in the home. In fact as a rule, we try not to follow trends. Yes, we have loved seeing Mongolian lamb on every conceivable surface and yes, we’d be happy to lacquer your ceiling but, by and large, we see our job as your interior designers to steer you away from ideas that are too much a part of popular culture and more towards the timeless. That’s not to say that we object altogether. The biggest problem we see with trends is that they can be exhausting and expensive to follow. While trends in fashion change at least three times a year, in interior design, change comes about more slowly. It’s simple to change a tee shirt or a hem line; a sofa or cocktail table is more difficult. Unlike your daily wardrobe, for the most part, the home is not for public viewing - or commentary. While the home should reflect the homeowner and all of their interests, it does not necessarily have to reflect their public persona. One thing that’s great about trends is that a little goes a long way. If something is easily changeable we’re all for it. It’s important to remember that virtually everything we’ve seen in design was at once considered trendy. Minimalism, Maximalism and everything in between has been considered the look of the moment. Egyptian Revival, Baroque, Rococo, Beaux Arts – all at one time were ‘nouveau’ both on your body and in your home. The trick to finding a way through the trends is to identify what works for you in your home and in your life. It’s easy to pick up a magazine and try to emulate the designs you see in print and in the editorial features. It’s another thing to live with the design that you actually love for what it represents to you as opposed to where it is currently featured. 26

Bridge for Design High Point Market Special Issue 2016

A particular trend that has real staying power is that more and more people want to be comfortable in every room of their homes. Disappearing are the days of the formal living room. Dining rooms have to be ready for both champagne and chocolate milk! The builders and architects we work with are creating totally open floorplans for more family and guest interaction. We think this is fantastic. To that end, when we are working with our clients and the time comes to accessorise the room and add artwork to the walls, we find that using family heirlooms, found objects and pieces that tell a story are more important than ever. If you’re going to live in every room in your house, your surroundings should be a reflection of your life and not your most recent trip to Home Goods! For reasons emotional or financial, almost everyone has to make one or more existing pieces work into a newly designed space. We generally welcome this challenge. A balance has to be struck between what works in the space and what makes you happy to be in it. One rule has always proved true for us in interior design: if you love it, it will work. In conversation it might make you sound nuts to describe a room with Chinoiserie fabric and mid-century furniture. In person it may just blow your mind. Good design does not have to make sense, it has to give you a feeling. Whether that feeling is being at home or simply being inspired, the evocation is the essence of a well done room. Like most things in life: good cheese, good wine, and sequins – trends are better in small doses. We applaud incorporating them into your home if you truly love the look. Just be sure it’s for your pleasure. That way, it will always be a sound investment. Some things never get old. Some things improve over time. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the feeling we get when we come to that place we call ‘home’. When you cross that threshold, it should be all about you. The clothes are tossed, the public persona put away and your home and all it evokes truly envelops you.

SOUTHERN COASTAL LIVING and colour, among other essential design considerations. She shares her gracious hospitality and invites readers into her life and home. ‘I wrote this book for many reasons,’ said Joni. ‘Mostly, I wanted to share my philosophy of luxury without pretense. For me, it’s all about how we use space vs. how we see it. Of course I want the homes and resorts I design to look beautiful, but they won’t actually be or feel beautiful if I haven’t understood and then planned for how people will live in and use each space. That’s what creates comfort in my view.’ ‘Where will people sit and read? What and where will the conversation areas be? How is the view incorporated into the room? How do the indoor and outdoor spaces relate to one another? These, to me, are the basics of comfort. ‘Then I look for luxury products that are user friendly because I want to create a relaxed, easy atmosphere. Now that there are luxury fabrics that actually wear well, I look for beautiful fabrics, especially upholstery fabrics, that allow us to put our feet up on the furniture. Fabrics need to be able to stand up to the daily wear of wet bathing suits and sandy feet of children, their friends and pets, so performance fabrics come in very handy. Furnishings, and seating especially, should be comfortable for lounging, for flopping and for those naps that you can only take when you’re on holiday.’

Joni Vanderslice invites us into her life and home in her new book which is packed full of beautiful photographs and design advice

Her stylistic range includes ever-fresh blue-and-white palettes that mirror the coastal waters and sky; vibrant hues that complement the region’s light; and equestrian motifs and themes from nature that are true to the locale. In inviting living rooms, gracious dining areas and kitchens that are the heart of the house, casual family rooms, and elegantly relaxed outdoor settings from veranda to poolside and dock, she layers the elements of design to tell her clients’ stories.

J Banks Design Group to national and international renown in hospitality and residential design. In this, her first

monograph, she tells her story and features homes that each radiate their own statement of southern coastal style.

Joni’s “luxury without pretense” philosophy is show-

cased in residential resort homes on and near Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Designed to feature the inspiring vistas from both inside and outside the home, these resi-

dences create relaxed indoor/outdoor living for families and guests alike.

A variety of styles includes the classic blue-and-white theme that simulates the coastal waters and sky; rich,

vibrant hues that respond to the natural bright light; equestrian themes; and lush private spaces that promote relaxation. There are kitchens and family rooms and men’s

spaces, where hobby accoutrements are part of the décor, as well as outdoor settings around poolsides, verandas, and docks.

Vanderslice also shares more than her philosophy on displaying artwork and collectibles, incorporating texture,

choosing lighting, and color, among other essential design

considerations: she also shares her gracious southern hospitality and welcomes readers into her life and home.

BLUE & WHITE The marriage of blue and white has been an enduring motif in the decorative arts

T

here are some matches that just seem like they’re made in heaven. In my opinion, blue and white is one of them - and to me, it also feels innately and classically southern. That could be because blue is the hue that we see most around us every day in our environment. Our southern skies are so often a bright, clear wash of aqua, interrupted only by white clouds that remind us of cotton. Many of us in this region also live close to the ocean, a lagoon, a lake, or a river. Blue comes in an almost endless variety of tones, which our vistas show us so magnificently: indigo as the last light dies at sunset; cobalt in the lobelia just beyond the front door; the Wedgwood blue of hydrangeas; the powder blue of early morning skies and the slate-tinged grey-blue of the Atlantic in Winter months. Since blue is also on the cool end of the colour spectrum, it does actually feel cooler to walk into a blue or blue-and-white room, especially when the temperature tops 100 degrees Fahrenheit on a sizzling hot Summer’s day. Blue-and-white accessories are very collectible and classic southern favourites. This makes sense, historically speaking: as our forebears sailed around the globe, they regularly brought back home the fine works they discovered abroad. Not least among them were the porcelains and ceramics in blue and white that now adorn so many of our historic houses. I have always found it fascinating that although the patterns differ, the palette itself unites cultures as far flung as the Chinese, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish, Japanese and Moroccan, just to name a few. Psychology indicates that blue surroundings allow the brain to become more creative which suggests to me that the colour has a relaxing effect. In my experience, everyone responds quickly to blue-and-white fabrics in all sorts of patterns, from stripes to nautical themes, from nature views to geometrics and more. Our coastal clients very often prefer the combination of blue and white to any other. And that makes sense to me. In linen and cotton, blue- and-white designs look sharp. They are fresh, crisp and clean and make a room feel bright and happy. One of my clients in Florida, in fact, has asked that I use blue and white, and only blue and white, in her homes - and I’ve now done that in the three I have designed. With her, I feel that I have used every blue-and-white fabric that exists. Ever since the ancients discovered pigments and dyes, the marriage of blue and white has been an enduring motif in the decorative arts. For many designers, myself included, the two remain a perfect pairing. From inky indigo to ice blue, from broad stripes to narrow bands, from intricate geometrics to complex florals, the range of possible hues and patterns is endless. Their juxtaposition also feels to me like a part of my southern heritage, perhaps because it ties us into this landscape of water and sky. Blue and caramel is another of my favourite combinations. Here is another perplexing truth: colour can, and does, change depending on environmental factors. From one time of day to another, from one location to another - meaning surroundings, longitude, and latitude - the same colour can seem to be a different hue entirely. The living room walls of my family home on Hilton Head Island exemplify that kind of changeability. When people ask me for the paint colour, which is grey, I give them the paint chip. Their response, always, is, “no. I want your blue.” Now, our house is right on the water, and our living room focuses on that view. We get a great deal of natural daylight, as well as reflected light on the water. Because of where we are and the quality of light that fills the room over the course of the day, that grey reads as blue. At night, it becomes another colour altogether. That’s why I always advocate adapting the palette to the place as well as the person.

THE LIBRARY OF CHAIRS The chair is a perfect DNA marker for the ever-changing evolution of furniture design

T

he chair has captivated designers, architects and consumers more than any other genre of the decorative arts. Chairs resemble the human body, an anthropomorphic form possessing backs, legs, arms and seats, bestowing a natural familiarity which helps explain their universal appeal. As educators and historians, we use chairs to teach and train students because they symbolise the life and time of the designer, maker, and user. As with any work of art, we can learn about the culture of each chair by looking at how it was made, who made it, when and where it was made and why it was created. We can look to the social, political, religious, and economic factors that influenced the chair’s origin. Thus the chair is a perfect DNA marker for the ever-changing evolution of furniture design. George Nelson was the Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company and designed much of the 20th century’s most iconic modernist furniture. Mr. Nelson wrote, “every truly original idea, every innovation in design, every new application of materials, every technical invention for furniture-seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” Another great designer of the 20th century, Mies van der Rohe, wrote, “the chair is a very difficult object. Everyone who has tried to make one knows that. There are endless possibilities and many problems. The chair has to be light, it has to be strong, it has to be comfortable. It is almost easier to build a skyscraper than a chair. That is why Chippendale is famous.” 44

In2011,mywife,Martha,andIestablishedSIDE(SuttonInitiativeforDesign Education) at Salem College. You may recall the article in the Spring issue of BRIDGE by Dr. Rosa Otero about the 240 year old women’s educational institution in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. A major component of SIDE was the establishing of a “teaching” chair library. This resource is unique in that no other college or university in the country has assembled a comparable collection of chairs that students, scholars, design professionals and manufacturers can study and use as a source of inspiration. Containing 45 chairs which are considered “icons” by furniture historians, each chair is unique in its design, use of materials and technology, innovation and creativity. The chairs in the Sutton Chair Collection have stood the test of time. The designers of these icons, including Thonet, Mackintosh, Breuer, Gray, LeCorbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Wright, Wegner,  Baughman, Jacobsen, Starck, Gehry, and Charles and Ray Eames (just to note a few) are highly regarded for innovation and insight. Credit is also due to those manufacturers who had the commitment to put these designs into production: companies such as Knoll, Artek, Vitra, Coggin, Herman Miller, Cassina, and Emeco. The Sutton Chair Library is open to the public and is devoted to the advancement of knowledge of furniture and design for members of the furniture industry, design professionals, scholars and students.
