E DITOR ’ S LET TE R

Style isn’t just about the way you dress or decorate your home, or about the things you choose to buy. Right now, I’m inspired by people who live fearlessly and with confidence, whether it’s launching a business or defining their career with a new visual language. They teach us so much by welcoming us into their homes/spaces/o∞ces, and we become friends in the process. Like our cover stars, Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone, whose path from creative directors to interior designers to product designers is a model for anyone setting out to make his or her name in design. Their new line of furniture is a not-to-be-missed riot of cool colors and shapes that feel of the moment, accessible, and entirely customizable. In our entertaining section, we bring to life a party celebrating the debut book of my friend (and frequent Domino contributor) photographer Jessica Antola at the Paris apartment of Ajiri Aki—who, coming from a career in fashion, has just launched her curated tabletop and linens business, Madame de la Maison. Antola’s series of portraits, landscapes, and interiors in sub-Saharan Africa had her explore how people relate to their environments in the most personal and honest ways. Most of these pictures are unstyled, capturing women on their way to work, on boats, and with their children, proving that style is everywhere— you just have to take the time to stop and look. Similarly, in Paris, Dorothée Meilichzon is defining French design by crafting chic hotel and restaurant spaces you won’t want to leave. And in New Orleans, artist Armina Mussa takes us through her adopted city, sharing the places that inspire her work for Saint Heron. The palette is one you will want to duplicate at home and reveals a di≠erent take on the Louisiana/Southern locale. For a last splash of color, see our favorite hues of the moment that are anything but typical: lilac, bracing blue, fierce orange, and deep burgundy. Throughout these pages, we curated the coolest objects for fall and gathered the people whose careers and taste we admire. Here’s to an inspiring season ahead!

DESIGN INSPIRATION

CULTURE FIX

Aquatic shapes and colors, and I’m always inspired by our neighborhood natural-spring pool, Barton Springs, in Austin.

Reading Motherhood by Sheila Heti; watching classic musicals like The Sound of Music and Singin’ in the Rain; listening to Stan Getz, Mississippi John Hurt, and the Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid soundtrack.

LATEST PROJECT

Nativo, a photography series that explores cowboy symbolism in relation to the charreada, a Mexican rodeo with traditions predating the frontiersmen folklore of the American West.

FALL STYLE M UST-HAVE

U P COMING P ROJECT

CULTURE FIX

I’ve been building a modern tree house for the kids with a James Turrell–inspired skylight, set for completion later this year.

I’m always in the middle of a few books; right now it’s The Stranger in the Woods, about a man who lived alone in the Maine wilderness for 27 years.

FAL L ST Y LE MUST- HAVE

RECENT ADVENTURE

In Northern California, we stay pretty mild year-round. But my favorite jacket is a waxed-cotton chore number from Freemans Sporting Club.

A family trip to the Grand Tetons and Jackson, Wyoming, to visit some of the places where my wife, Kendra, and I used to camp while growing up in the West.

GATHERINGS GO-TO

A great playlist is key for a dinner-slash-dance party: 1960s surfer music with some Serge Gainsbourg or Gal Costa— and classic hip-hop, of course. RECENT ADVENTURE

Traveling to the northern coast of Puerto Rico with my family. We were so inspired by the island’s beauty, resilience, and all the people we met there.

GATHERINGS GO -TO

GATHERINGS GO -TO

Mid-century modern is a constant— Charles Eames, Arne Jacobsen, Jean Prouvé, Harry Bertoia—and the universe of India Mahdavi.

I’m currently shooting a book for Alain Ducasse’s new pastry chef, Jessica Préalpato, of the Plaza Athénée in Paris, which launches in October.

FAVOR IT E FAL L COCKTAIL

CULTURE FIX

When I travel, I always bring a little stash of chocolate to o≠er. It’s the most thoughtful gift. And the ritual of opening a box after dinner and sharing with friends is the best.

A variation on the classic gin and tonic with plum-infused sloe gin and elderflower tonic at Papillon restaurant, right around the corner from my photo studio in Paris.

My brother gave me Modern Women: 52 Pioneers, which sits by my bed. Such an inspiring read! I am also a serious TV addict and just finished The Rain, a Danish show.

An unforgettable week of food, design, and sights in Tokyo and Kyoto.

FLOWER POWER

P I LLOW TA LK Squishy noodles, quilted money, poufy cartoon characters—these female artists are transforming the humble pillow into sculptural objects that are anything but square.

SEAMED AND SEWN

Originally from Kentucky, the Queens, New York–based fiber artist Natalie Baxter found her calling young. “Quilting reminds me of my grandmother, who grew up in Appalachia,” she says. One of her betterknown installations, Warm Guns, is a wall of quilted rifles made with recycled cloth, tassels, and spandex that confronts ideas around masculinity and violence using traditionally feminine materials. Other works—like Money Quilts, resembling giant fabric dollar bills, and Alt Caps, which reimagines text pulled from a negative review as hand-sewn su≠ragette-style banners—further play with expectations. “My goal is to wrap up serious issues in a flamboyant package,” says Baxter.

New York prop stylist and sculptor Molly Findlay was searching for the perfect couch when she had an aha moment. “I was feeling very hemmed in by how permanent a sofa can be,” she explains. “I thought it would be fun to dismantle and reduce everything to its most simple form: a long string.” And so Mrs. Noodle Pillow was born. The original model—40 feet long and covered in bright Brussels velvet—is like a malleable indoor jungle gym–meets–art piece smack-dab in the center of your living room. “Our kids pile them up, string them out, or coil them into a nest,” says Findlay. “With all the craziness going on in the world, it feels really good to come home to a giant hug.”

Sad Rose With Stigmata by Hein Koh, photograph by Dan Bradica; Portrait of Natalie Baxter by Joshua Simpson; Portrait of Molly Findlay by Nina Choi.

Seven years ago, Brooklyn artist Hein Koh began experimenting with ripping up cloth and sewing the pieces back together. “I found it meditative and relaxing,” she says. Her first soft wall sculpture—a painted acrylic eye made out of canvas and stu≠ed with Poly-fil—paved the way for her oversize works, including a one-eyed ice cream cone, a crying rose, and a humanlike hamburger. “I started anthropomorphizing everything after my twin daughters were born,” she explains. Inspired by artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Claes Oldenburg, Koh cites metallic spandex and sequins as her latest favorite textiles: “I’m like a kid in a candy store when I’m surrounded by my materials.”

THE MODERN REGISTRY Bid farewell to cumbersome silverware collections. After the vows are said and done, today’s newlyweds are driving around New Zealand in an Airstream for a year with little more in tow than hiking boots and a custom hashtag. They are light on their feet and have no interest in big, heavy things that might weigh them down. Instead, it’s all about curating cool experiences and objects that are meaningful and in the moment. Our executive weddings editor, Molly Rosen Guy, shares her favorite ideas.

“I do a lot of walking, and these are all places I’ve stumbled upon and now return to often. It’s like a ritual,” says Armina Mussa of exploring her adopted city. The artist moved from New York to New Orleans in 2013 to help launch Saint Heron, an online platform and shop that celebrates diversity in design, art, and music, created by her friend Solange Knowles. Now co–creative director, Mussa oversees projects like a new ceramics line with Los Angeles–based artist Kenesha Sneed of Tactile Matter and an upcoming Saint Heron ≈ Ikea collaboration. In her own work, Mussa published a conceptual book in 2015, Unknown Wyoming, and had her first solo show this year, “Small Sculptures and Symbols”—featuring 45 brick-size pieces in unfired

The metaphor is a personal one. In 2015, Mussa was attacked at her home. She has turned the traumatic experience into a journey of healing and resilience, looking to New Orleans as a place of rebirth and refuge. “Moving here was like starting over, and now I’m living a second life. I have a very deep and emotional connection to the city,” she says. Here, Mussa shares the places that she draws on daily for inspiration.

C A N E A N D TA B L E 1113 Decatur Street, caneandtablenola.com Like so many places in the French Quarter, you walk in o≠ a loud street and find an intimate, candlelit spot tucked out of the way. Cane and Table is known for its mixologists and organic wine list. Tell them what you want and they’ll throw together something amazing, like the floral liqueur–based drink I had recently.

A secluded bar with a small garden serving French-Japanese cuisine, N7 is located in the 9th Ward. Dishes are on the lighter side and always delicious, like the sake-cured salmon and avocado salad—as well as “can to table” o≠erings such as smoked oysters and mackerel pâté. It’s one of those places where you end up drinking wine with friends all night. Best vibe! O K AY B A R 1700 Port Street, okaybar.com

The owners are usually behind the bar at this Bywater hangout, the only business on an otherwise quiet residential street. There are vintage films playing on a small TV, and the back room has a ’70s feel. Get the spicy beef tacos.

For Edith Young, getting “younger people interested in very old things” is a calling of sorts. The Rhode Island School of Design alumna and New York–based multi-hyphenate (photographer-designerwriter, for now) has lent her talents to the millennial trifecta of female-led brands—Glossier, Outdoor Voices, and, most recently, Man Repeller—as photo editor and in-house photographer. She credits the entrepreneurial influence of those companies’ founders as an essential component in launching her own startup endeavor: making art history cool via painterly Pantone prints. A humorously enticing research prompt (“The best red is to copy the color of a child’s cap in any Renaissance portrait”) derived from a quote by fashion icon Diana Vreeland led Young to begin cataloging distinctive crimson hues over the course of two years. A school project provided the impetus to distill her color bank into her first print: a four-by-five grid studiously annotated with the title of each historical artwork. After being inundated with Instagram requests, Young

decided to put a suite of the palettes into production. Having moved back into her parents’ Manhattan apartment following graduation, she scrappily fulfilled the first 200 orders out of her bedroom—a former master closet converted by her mother, interior designer Stefanie Scheer Young. Young’s creative trajectory and cultural fluency can be attributed in part to her art-loving parents, who would often bring her on trips to auction houses, antiques fairs, and museums. For their home’s audacious hues, Scheer Young toured exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, analyzing how the curators employed “richer, more complex colors.” Other unexpected inspirations include a handful of peacock feathers that helped determine just the right pairing of blues in the dining room and bar area. “After testing dozens of paint samples, we had confirmation from nature that it wasn’t crazy to have them together,” quips Scheer Young. The splashy yet considered palette continues throughout the rest of the apartment, from emerald

and amethyst tones popping against a softer gray-green in the living room to solid black setting the stage in the powder room for a striking, three-dimensional canvas by George Ortman. The family’s penchant for collecting unique mementos creates more artful and witty combinations. While conspicuously free of color, the kitchen’s all-white surfaces put the focus on an extensive set of heirloom Royal Copenhagen dinnerware—as well as a photo from Young’s Pie Eating Contest series (now available as a Man Repeller collaboration with Framebridge). And the scarlet-hued zebra wallpaper in Young’s bedroom? The diminutive square footage prompted her to take a risk with a Scalamandre pattern she fell for after seeing it in Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. A small but growing collection of black-and-white photography personalizes the space. The cumulative e≠ect of living in such a “stimulating environment” inevitably informs Young’s own work, which continues to be in high demand.

A WHOLE NEW AURA

ADVERTISEMENT

Benjamin Moore partnered with designer, artist and best-selling author Justina Blakeney on a family project with a lot of heart. BEFORE

I am so excited that Domino and Benjamin Moore asked me to try Benjamin Moore Aura & Bath Spa paint, especially since my sister Faith and I are remodeling our parents' condo, so the timing is perfect! This project is very special to me. My parents are moving into this condo that originally belonged to my great grandparents, Ida and Papa Si. It’s been thirty years since the home has been updated and we want it to feel totally new and fresh for this new chapter in our parents’ lives.

AFTER

The easiest and most affordable way to dramatically change the look, feel, and even function of a space is to use color. For bathrooms, it’s especially important to pick paint colors that are flattering to skin tones. It’s hard to go wrong with warm hues: light peach, soft pink, warm beige, brown and golden tans. Benjamin Moore is so reliable when it comes to color. The hues are always rich and full, and Aura Bath & Spa makes it possible for the color to work its magic while also resisting moisture and humidity. It's a definite game changer for bathroom design. In our parents' new bathroom remodel we used Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa paint in Pink Beach 1172. It goes on very easy, and the finish looks velvety, providing the perfect soft glow. Pink Beach plays beautifully with the artisanal tile, softly reflects the light, and really ties the room together. I love the vibes that an open shower can bring, but it creates a lot of humidity. Not all paints can withstand this type of environment and normally, we'd be limited to using paint with a glossy or semiglossy finish, but Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa paint's matte finish is mildew resistant and is designed specifically to withstand moisture and humidity. All that, plus the warm, rustic vibes of a matte finish? Yes, please! — JUSTINA BLAKENEY T O L E A R N M O R E A B O U T T H E A U R A B AT H & S PA C O L L E C T I O N V I S I T W W W.

“I truly love fashion, and I’m not limited to one style, but that results in a lot of clothing!” Clare Vivier knows how to negotiate. When her husband, Thierry, wanted to turn the dressing room in their Silver Lake Craftsman home into a bathroom, she made him an o≠er he couldn’t refuse. “I said, ‘Sure, I’ll give it up—as long as I can turn our spare bedroom into my closet.” It was a win-win situation. The space has since become home to the accessory designer’s extensive, ever-evolving wardrobe, a mash-up of streetwear–meets– French girl cool–meets–arty eccentric that she chronicles on Instagram. “I truly love fashion, and I’m not limited to one style, but that results in a lot of clothing!” explains Vivier, whose brand, Clare V., is coveted for its chic bags and fun, quippy tees. “When shopping, I try to ask myself: Do I have anything really similar? If the answer is no, and I love a piece and can a≠ord it, I’m probably bringing it home.” To store her finds, she assembled a hodgepodge of furniture— hanging racks, a dresser, and a big vintage armoire—but the room “was still pretty chaotic,” Vivier admits. One of the biggest issues was keeping such a sizable closet clean. “Because I spend a lot of time in there, I wanted it to be easy to tidy up and maintain a zen feeling,” she says.

Enter California Closets designer Nicole Caswell. “Our goal was to create a boutique-style closet that would display Clare’s eclectic collections,” she says. Caswell added ample storage and shelves of varying sizes, as well as strategically placed hooks for hanging dozens of handbags. Vivier wanted to show o≠ a rotating archive of clothing—which includes treasures like a blue-and-white–striped Chanel suit, a feather vest, and a new Stella McCartney ta≠eta skirt—so Caswell installed a custom cabinet with forward-facing garment rods to do just that. A multilevel drawer organizer keeps jewelry in place, while another holds scarves. And then there is Vivier’s envy-inducing assortment of colorful shoes and boots, which now have their own closet with angled shelves, so the designer can easily survey her wares and find what she needs. Tying it all together is the graphic wallpaper she collaborated on with Wallshoppe that serves as a backdrop for the entire room. “I love how uniform and clean everything is,” says Vivier of the newly organized space. “It’s functional while not feeling stu≠y. And it still feels like me.” Closet californiaclosets.com; Lotus Stripe Wallpaper by Clare V. for Wallshoppe wallshoppe.com; Denim and Beach Pillows from $175 heathertaylorhome.com.

MATE R IAL WO R LD How Clare Vivier brings a bold fashion sense to her spaces.

G O B R O A D F O R I N S P I R AT I O N “I’m loyal in my life, but definitely not with my design periods!” says Vivier, who balanced out the contemporary feel of the new wardrobe system with vintage furniture such as a metal and wood slat chair. “I feel like every era has beautiful pieces in fashion and design, and I’m very open to mixing all of them.”

F I N D YO U R CO LO R CO M B O S “Certain outfits need another color to make them feel more you. I rarely wear my nutmeg dress except when I have a red or royal blue scarf to pair with it,” says the designer. To make her Popsicle-hued striped rug work in the room, Vivier went to her go-to palette and chose red wallpaper and blue gingham Heather Taylor Home pillows.

S AV E W H A T Y O U L O V E The floral print of the space’s Lotus wallpaper was inspired by kanga cloth the designer bought on a trip to Tanzania years ago. “I like to hold onto things, because they’ll come around again in style and then I’ll be ready,” explains Vivier, who recently put two sharp-shouldered blazers from the 1940s back into rotation.

Like many city-dwelling moms-to-be, one of the first things I thought after hearing I was pregnant was: Where are we going to fit the baby?—not in the grander scheme of things but on the practical level of living in a 400-square-foot Brooklyn apartment. My husband and I are lucky enough to have a small spare room that has doubled as both o∞ce and guest room (a queen-size blow-up mattress fills all available floor space). But rather than completely hand over the nursery-in-the-making to cutesy animal prints and primary hues, we hoped to find a middle ground—where cool art, warm neutrals, and vintage furniture created a place we would also want to hang out in (even at 3 a.m. in a sleepless fog). Here’s how it turned out, with five takeaways on building your own babyland.

A crib feels like a splurge (and space invader) when you won’t be using it right away and your newborn is in your bedroom. Still, a convertible version gets you through the toddler years, so once you’ve found the right design and price point, “bed” can be checked o≠ the to-buy list. And for all those middle-of-the-night feedings, dimmed, soft lighting in the form of sconces brings in a softer glow.

BABY MAKES THREE

As renters, rather than invest in painting the room, we preferred keeping things white and adding color with an accent wall in a sunny floral (and removable) wallpaper. Other pops came from art and soft goods. I repurposed a dresser into a changing table that will transition beyond the diaper stage ( just make sure it’s at a comfortable height for you to bend over). Separating stu≠ into what you need on hand every day (diapers, lots of them) versus not having to access as often (seasonal clothing, baby’s and ours) is helpful when carving out storage areas. We installed a shelf above with larger baskets, while smaller hampers tuck easily into corners.

FA L L 2 0 1 8

An heirloom crib seemed questionable for safety reasons, but I love vintage, so we went with a Danish teak design for the nursing chair. Turns out most mid-century styles have slimmer profiles than what’s available new (modern gliders and rockers can be weirdly bulky). And there’s just something comforting about sitting in a well-loved chair that’s been around longer than you have.

AND BABY MAKES THREE

As much as I like open and airy, having some closed shelving seemed pretty essential in a smaller nursery. We customized this simple pine cabinet by lining the back with the same wallpaper to tie in with the opposite wall. It gives us the option to throw stu≠ in, close the doors, and feel tidy—a real triumph for new parents.

The art shaped the vibe of the room—a surf-inspired print by Schuyler Beecroft, a meditative sound-bath piece, a whimsical work by the amazing Gordon Harrison Hull, a photo snapped at the tidal pool where my husband grew up in Southern California. Everything can ultimately move around and doesn’t need to be delegated to a kid-only space. That said, we kept the colors bright and shapes simple so the gallery wall is (hopefully) baby-approved.

STYLING BY FINOLA INGER

Pippa Small is not the type of person to live in a minimalist white box. “Color just makes me happy,” she says emphatically. The jewelry designer’s passion for vibrant hues is apparent throughout her small flat in London’s North Kensington neighborhood, which she shares with her 6-year-old twins, Mac and Madeleine. Another highlight: the lovingly curated collections of pieces from Afghanistan, Bolivia, and other far-flung places she regularly visits to create her designs with local artisans. A lifelong traveler who grew up in a globe-trotting family, Small spent her childhood meeting the Maasai people in Tanzania and befriending Berbers in Morocco with her adventurous painter mother. The experiences “ignited this fascination in me with the way other people live—their religion, their environment, their landscapes,” she says. As a young adult, she pursued a career in NGOs, fighting for

land and cultural rights, before moving to Borneo while completing her master’s degree in medical anthropology. “There is something endlessly fascinating about human creativity and its ability to transform materials,” says Small, who saw a way to work with communities whose skills and traditions were in danger of disappearing. With that in mind, she launched her fine jewelry business in 1995 and started collaborating with the very indigenous and tribal people she had been helping. After landing a collection at Barneys New York, big-name fashion designers like Tom Ford and Phoebe Philo soon came calling. At home, Small’s travels are reflected in every corner. Much like her jewelry—which follows the natural shapes of stones in clean, simple designs—her unique spaces celebrate imperfection and fluidity. “I use my flat as a constant source of inspiration,” she says. Here, she walks us through some of her decorating ideas.

F I N D YO U R PA L E T TE Sticking to particular colors helps “unite everything,” according to Small, who suggests picking your favorites and keeping within that spectrum—whether earth tones or pastel hues. The saturated pinks, purples, and oranges that might otherwise look jarring together create a cohesive whole when woven into textiles and art across the space. “It’s a celebration of life, embracing color like that,” says Small, who painted her bedroom a “remarkably soothing” turquoise that reminds her of aquamarine stones.

TU RN STOR AG E I N T O D I S P L AY The designer often brings her work home in the form of souvenirs from travels and inspiration for future pieces. Beads picked up in India and South America are draped over an African wooden bowl. The open shelves in the living room cupboard show o≠ Small’s collection of ceramic objets from Japan and wooden toys from the Guna people of Panama. And in the kitchen, vintage plates and teacups stored on a wooden rack create a whimsical touch. Each item contains a personal memory or “untold story,” adding to the overall narrative.

C R E AT E A TA C T I L E R E A L I T Y Small turns to books as a reference rather than Pinterest—and her well-stocked bookshelves and stacks of tomes scattered throughout the space reflect that preference. “Learning to read was the equivalent of getting a driver’s license for me,” says Small, who owns hundreds of books on tribal cultures, mythology, and ancient jewelry. “It’s lovely to have elements that have a human connection to them. It brings a di≠erent dimension to your home.”

The challenge was taking this large, impressive, but irregular-shaped

Formerly known as the New York Telephone Company Building, the 33-story structure was among the world’s first Art Deco skyscrapers, designed by distinguished architect Ralph Walker and declared a New York City Landmark in 1999. While the residence’s Roaring Twenties allure played an important role in Leifer’s vision, the sweeping vistas also informed the unit’s palette.

space and making it feel usable and friendly,” explains interior designer Bennett Leifer, whose eye for contrast was one of many reasons Domino enlisted him to reimagine a model unit at the One Hundred Barclay building in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. Tasked with designing Loft 13B—a three-bedroom residence boasting water views, prewar grandeur, and angles to spare—Leifer brought in daring pops of color, punchy patterns, and luxe materials.

“You see the natural elements of the river and parks, and there are so many beautiful buildings down here—the glow at sunset bounces o≠ all the reflective surfaces,” he says. Splashes of deep green, sea blue, and statement pink spotted outside are thoughtfully echoed within the family-ready loft. An emerald silk wall covering envelops the ultrachic master suite, while raspberry and cobalt hues brighten the guest bedrooms. One detail close to Leifer’s heart is the Manhattan-inspired wallpaper he designed in collaboration with de Gournay for the dining area. “I live on Gramercy Park and it’s always been important to me. It feels like a very iconic New York moment.” With the color story falling into place, Liefer turned to finding a seating arrangement that would tie the space together. “Flat walls are the exception in that room. I played around with a lot of di≠erent shapes and nothing felt right,” notes the designer, who ultimately decided to anchor the open floor plan with a semicircular sofa. “Having something amorphous in that angular setting works really well.”

When it came to lighting, he kept to organic and sculptural forms. “I focused more on things that felt handmade or just very simple,” he says. And throughout the residence, whimsical large-scale prints impart a lively dose of personality. The result strikes a fine balance— much like the finished project as a whole.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY VIRGINIE GARNIER STYLING AND TEXT BY AJIRI AKI

When I first met photographer Jessica Antola almost a decade ago, our paths had surprisingly never crossed despite having so many people and interests in common. We immediately hit it o≠ and talked for hours about both having just moved to New York from Paris (I returned seven years ago and settled with my family), her frequent travels throughout Africa, and my early upbringing in Nigeria. We’ve since maintained a transatlantic friendship, meeting up often and always encouraging each other on our various projects. For me, it was recently launching Madame de la Maison, a linen and antiques rental and sales business, and for Jessica, it was her first monograph, Circadian Landscape, a collection of photographs she took between 2011 and 2014 during trips through sub-Saharan

Africa. To celebrate the new release—and to thank Jessica for the role she played in leading me to find my true passion—I hosted a lunch at home, bringing together mutual friends from Paris and New York (who happened to be in town), including fashion veterans Jen Mankins of Bird and Michelle Stein, designers Victor Glemaud and George Sotelo, writers Lindsey Tramuta and Emilie Meinadier, and Benjamin Lanz of The National and Beirut and his wife, musician Sonya Hofer. The di≠erent places where our worlds collide—and Jessica’s artist statement in the book on how people express themselves in relation to their environments—guided the look and feel of the party. I love a theme, because it’s a thread that helps pull things together creatively.

TA BL ESCA PE The starting point for the decor was two of my favorite images from Circadian Landscape, Tofinu Girls, Benin 2014 and Washing Day, Senegal 2011, which I matched to a wax fabric found at a local flea market and made into a runner. Antique Limoges gold-rimmed plates seemed appropriate (Africans love their gold jewelry), paired with Madame de la Maison’s Thyme tablecloth and Lavande napkins. For a personalized touch, I asked my friend illustrator Jessie Kanelos Weiner to create ombré menus and print postcards that added an extra touch to the table and served as a memento for each guest. A thoughtful tablescape set the mood for the event.

MENU Since becoming a more experienced entertainer, I’ve learned that you do not have to cook to host people! I can’t make a big Nigerian meal to save my life, so I ordered shrimp fried rice, jollof (a one-pot rice dish), and chicken suya from African Kitchen in the 11th arrondissement. At home, I threw okra, tomatoes, and Scotch bonnets into a skillet with a little ras el hanout (a North African spice mix), then added plantains sliced Hasselback-style with some garlic olive oil, and baked it in the oven for 25 minutes to o≠er as a side dish. For cocktails, a spiked punch is something you can premake and guests serve themselves. My version has hibiscus tea and ginger juice, with Prosecco, a little vodka, and mint to garnish; or lemon juice, gin, and ginger beer topped with rosemary as a second option. To me, graze boards are the new cheese and charcuterie plates. The idea is to slightly overfill a platter with ingredients, while keeping color and pattern in mind. You’ll have a pretty spread with minimal e≠ort required.

FLOR A L S I wanted the florals to be reminiscent of the dry climate and bizarre plants at my grandmother’s house in Nigeria, as well as the sculptural-looking greenery in Jessica’s photographs. Dried flower expert Alix Mobuchon of Racine, who works with such fashion brands as Chanel and Isabel Marant, created two large arrangements that fit the theme. On the table, I like to keep florals cheap and cheerful but impactful—arranging baby’s breath or wax flowers in small vintage vessels, for example, or using fragrant eucalyptus or ruscus to make a runner. I loath giant blooms that block the person across from you. Bigger statement bouquets can be put on the mantel or o≠ to the side—no ducking and diving to speak to your guests!

BEET & YOGURT DIP Inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi 1 ∏ pounds beets 1 chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 ∏ cups plain Greek yogurt 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp honey 1 tbsp za’atar (see recipe below) Salt Sesame seeds for garnish

Place the beets in a shallow baking dish with a few tablespoons of water and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or until tender, then set aside to cool completely.

Eat With All of Your Senses Large-scale platters make snacking (and prep) super-easy. When assembling a fall-themed crudité plate, consider contrast and let color be your guide. Begin at the deeper end of the spectrum—figs, pomegranates, radishes, and grapes—and work your way to the lighter side, incorporating wax beans, Bartlett pears, and Romanesco cauliflower. A roasted beet yogurt dip completes the ombré e≠ect.

Peel the beets and slice into small cubes. Put in a food processor with the chile, garlic, and yogurt, and blend. Drizzle in the olive oil, honey, za’atar, and a pinch of salt, and blend until thoroughly incorporated. Pour into a bowl and garnish with a generous pinch of sesame seeds.

Vintage Cool — Baltimore-based restaurateur Lane Harlan, owner and creative director of W.C. Harlan, Clavel, and Fadensonnen (coming soon), encourages you to uncork one of these options for a refreshing change. WHITE

Take a cue from wine drinkers in the Alps: tasting the acidity of a Riesling cutting through a fat-laden roast or a Chenin Blanc with a rich cheese fondue will change your mind about enjoying a white in the colder seasons! For example, Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion for serving lighter styles you can drink all day while grazing. The trick is to balance acidity, which keeps your palate fresh and clear, with a lower alcohol content (think: 12 percent) that’s less voluptuous or weighty. U N F I LT E R E D

The texture and added microbial goodness of unfiltered wines mean you don’t need to make a big statement with food. They can be served at every stage of a meal and are a true snapshot of a natural life cycle; without the addition of sulfur, the wine will react to the air around you and evolve as it wants to evolve. ORANGE

Orange wines—actually skin-contact wines, which are fermented with the skin of white-wine grapes left on—have a liveliness, distinct hue, and unique flavor that sets them apart (they’re touted as being good for digestion, too). Most producers won’t put “orange” on the label, so do a quick search on the winemaker and/or vineyard to be sure you’re buying something made with care rather than just a trendy bottle. (Georgia has some surprisingly good offerings.) Try pairing with mushrooms, blue cheese, and raw chocolate.

Line a deep wicker tray with plastic, fill with ice, and place on top of any table surface to double as a bar. Pop in a few bottles and arrange florals directly in the ice to tie the look together.

AT HER RUSTIC-MODERN HOME IN BOLINAS, AN HOUR NORTH OF SAN FRANCISCO, PHOTOGRAPHER THAYER GOWDY CARVED OUT HER VERY OWN SLICE OF PARADISE, ONE WOOD PLANK AT A TIME. FA L L 2 0 1 8

“It was like a West Coast Grey Gardens,” says Thayer Gowdy, comparing the state of the ramshackle house she bought less than two years ago to the famously derelict Long Island mansion. What now appears as a whitewashed, loftlike oasis with a terraced yard tailor-made for parties was once “pretty much a complete teardown.” In other words, a dream come true.

F O R Y E A R S , Gowdy—a photographer who works for brands such as True Botanicals and Vera Bradley—had a paint chip palette pinned to her refrigerator with bucket-list goals scrawled across each shade of white. “One was to sail in Turkey. Another was to have a baby. The third was to buy a house in Bolinas,” explains the Vermont native and longtime Bay Area resident. “I never had the baby, but I have the house.” Moving to a favorite neighborhood seems a lot simpler than giving birth—however, living in the well-protected counterculture enclave that is Bolinas, a hard-core boho paradise of unpaved roads and gentle longboard waves, does require determination. Gowdy gave up her apartment in Brooklyn, leased her house in San Francisco, took a small rental nearby (plus some storage units in Sausalito), and started a disappointing cycle of what was e≠ectively real estate whack-a-mole, making bids on homes that would vanish to higher o≠ers. Finally, when she happened upon a mess of a property next door to a friend’s place, she was intrigued. “Seriously, it was so bad that no one wanted it,” she recalls. Gowdy got a private loan, then had to fix up the property in under nine months to qualify for a more traditional home loan. That’s when the hard work really began. “This project would have felt daunting to most people in terms of a production schedule and just getting it done,” she says of her ambitious approach to DIY. “But the day I signed the papers, the tree removal guys were waiting up the street. The real estate agent was like, ‘You’re doing this now?’” Gowdy and a friend milled the wood and built a fence, a deck, and smaller pieces throughout the house. “Everybody I know helped,” she says. The resulting space is large enough to accommodate guests (to pay back the many favors called in) and has a beautifully raw feel, with unfinished window frames and oversize rugs from Soufiane Zarib, a dealer in Marrakech, scattered around. Natural elements, like baskets and wooden pegs for storage and a 15-foot-long wooden bench in

An intrepid maker, Gowdy (above) was hands-on with almost everything in the home. She designed the geometric stained-glass windows in the living area (previous spread), which her father, Joe Arborio, then built in Vermont at their joint small craft business, Wilderness Workshop.

And finishing touches, such as a beloved turntable and favorite photos by her friends and colleagues—one by Rennie Solis of the surfer-director Malloy brothers gathered around a fire, another by Magdalena Wosinska of a model wearing a bunny mask, high heels, and not much else—keep a playful edge that Gowdy is known for in her own work. Because she also uses the home as an o∞ce and photo studio, Gowdy added a few exterior doors and created a large, open layout to allow for unfiltered natural light. She skipped window treatments in most rooms and left art o≠ certain walls to maintain a clean white backdrop. The casual indoor-outdoor flow, according to the photographer, is so you can “come through the back gate, drop your board, rinse o≠ your wetsuit, and leave everything outside.” Future plans include a deck extension to connect

certain areas. And the terraced garden, which Gowdy designed with low-maintenance gravel and built-in seating, is already a well-used gathering spot. The only detail from the original structure that remains is the cast-iron tub, set outside for an openair soak. A triangular window cut into the fence o≠ers a sliver of a view of the Pacific. It’s an apt metaphor for the house in general. Sometimes you just need a little bit of vision to see the infinite possibilities. That plus a shocking amount of hard work to see it through to the end.

t h aye r g owdy ’s ru l es fo r h o m e re n ovat io n s

P L AY U P C O N T R A S T “Every house I’ve ever lived in I’ve painted the outside black and the walls white,” says Gowdy. It’s both a nod to her classic New England roots and a modern twist. When she has the time (and energy), she plans to treat each faded shingle with tinted linseed oil to make them darker. “It’s a passive way of heating your home; the black warms things up in the winter.”

FA L L 2 0 1 8

ASK FOR HELP “If I hadn’t produced photo shoots for the past 20 years, I never could have done this,” says Gowdy, recognizing that she’s lucky to know a host of multitalented builders through her line of work. “My friend Robert taught me to mill wood and did all my steel gates. My friend Curtis and I built the kitchen. He also makes a great cactus pear brandy!”

G E T C R E AT I V E While the original kitchen plans included marble countertops, Gowdy’s budget determined otherwise: “You have to build the wood counters before you install marble. I liked how it looked, so I just finished with three coats of marine varnish”—a prime example of her roll-with-thepunches attitude. She makes mood boards, but tries to stay flexible. “The fun part about doing a house is being organic.”

114

M A K E YO U R OW N R U L E S Because the floors of the old house were so uneven, Gowdy blew her budget having them leveled and didn’t have much left over for hardwood. “I considered building a kiln so I could dry and season the planks myself,” she says, laughing. After much deliberation, she made a more practical choice: “I went onto a builders-supply website and bought 4,000 square feet of vinyl plank flooring, sight unseen. It wasn’t ideal, but I like the way it looks. Since then, I’ve had friends copy it.”

fashion photographer Christian Högstedt, never pictured leaving downtown Manhattan, where studio shoots and work events are all conveniently close by. But when their expanding family outgrew a Tribeca loft, the couple considered decamping to Brooklyn. Last year, they moved with their 2-year-old daughter, Matilda (and son Jude, now 7 months, on the way), to a prewar Brooklyn Heights building that was serendipitously located next door to a playground. The apartment, spread over two floors, felt like a step back in time, with its four fireplaces and curving walls whose rooms once entertained a myriad of pastimes. “Our bedroom was an old gentlemen’s cigar room,” says Walsh. “The bones of the space are crazy. The ceilings are so tall and the moldings have entire narratives to them.” The couple sought to maintain the original features with one exception: lighting. Högstedt, who shoots for publications such as S T Y L I S T E R I N WA L S H A N D H E R H U S B A N D ,

Marie Claire and Vogue, understands the power of good glow. He replaced each of the pendant fixtures to create a rosier, almost golden, light and painted and scribbled on paper lanterns from Pearl River Mart for a cool DIY moment. Drawing on her expertise, Walsh saw the project much the way she dresses her clients—including Sarah Jessica Parker, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Thandie Newton, women who embrace vibrant palettes and prints on red carpets and in everyday life. “Our home is evocative of our style DNA,” Walsh explains. “It’s walking that line of clean and a little crazy.” In the living room, a black-and-white– patterned couch serves as the focal point, along with a stark black daybed set by the windows, both covered in brightly patterned pillows. When paired alongside mismatched artwork, lots of plants, and co≠eetable books neatly piled on almost every surface, the e≠ect takes on a free-spirited feel.

A polished playfulness resides throughout the house, with irreverent art, lots of design books, and graphic textiles on display.

“Your home is your sanctuary, so you want it to be cozy and calm,” says the stylist of finding the right balance. “But you have to be brave in your choices or else it won’t have personality.” Walsh, who also runs the multimedia platform Sbjct Journal, admits this sense of boldness is relatively new. She and Högstedt’s first apartment was kept spare mostly due to her self-doubt in creating spaces that make a statement. “Over time I started to own my style and felt more comfortable being allowed to have an opinion,” she says. “Those decisions end up being the ones I love the most.” The apartment’s art collection reflects that same personalized approach, where the couple’s most prized pieces are a nod to their storied careers. In the dining room, a photograph of Kate Moss posing on a bathroom sink, by Mario Testino (Högstedt was his assistant for many years), shares the room with a signed Irving Penn flower print, which the late photographer presented to Walsh at a Vogue shoot years ago. The works join a high-low mix, ranging from fashion photography to quirky prints scored in antiques shops. The decor goal overall was a “Scandinavian meets Peruvian” vibe,

FA L L 2 0 1 8

where minimalist design gives way to layered textiles in the form of patterned rugs, alpaca blankets, and gigantic children’s pom-poms from Lima. (The couple traveled extensively to Peru with Testino, who introduced them to his native country’s centuries-old design craftsmanship.) Other finds reflect Högstedt’s Swedish heritage: Josef Frank pillows hail from Stockholm staple Svenskt Tenn, and various objets, such as brass candleholders and trays, are by Skultuna. Walsh tries to limit the amount of toys strewn throughout the house, but acquiesces when they’re design appropriate. A miniature white table with Herman Miller–inspired chairs makes for a perfect tea party spot in the dining room, and a childhood armchair reupholstered in a Liberty print blends in next to the ornate brass fireplace. Her favorite perch for nestling Jude is a folding butterfly chair in the living room, using a co≠ee table Högstedt made with Vogue magazines stacked under a plate of glass as a footrest. “We love the combination of whimsical and clever,” says Walsh. “We don’t take our home too seriously. Life is short and you should smile at the things around you.”

Lourdes Hernández may be best known for the melodious, emotive music she performs under the stage name Russian Red. But she’s also in the business of creating meaningful spaces. A native of Madrid, Hernández came to Los Angeles in 2013 to record her most recent album and has since set up a home there. Playing at the L.A. club Largo one night several years back, she hit it o≠ with another guitarist, Zach Leigh (“He shared his amp with me”)—and they’ve been together ever since. The couple quickly realized they wanted to collaborate on other ventures. Leigh works in real estate, and Hernández loves interior design, so a building project was a natural next step. They scouted an old progressive church and former civil rights meeting place in Highland Park and, knowing they had found something special, started on renovations. The pair reopened the 4,000-square-foot event venue as Ruby Street and moved into the basement apartment. A day after the first concert kicked things o≠, someone reached out

FA L L 2 0 1 8

to see if Ruby Street could host a wedding. It could. A few months following that success, Hernández and Leigh threw their own wedding in the historic Arts and Crafts building. “It was like blessing the space with our own experience,” says Hernández. In 2017, it was time to stretch their legs, literally. Hernández longed to live in a more walking-friendly neighborhood. “We walk everywhere in Madrid,” she says. “You take that for granted until it is taken away from you. It’s this thing you can’t identify that makes you less happy.” They started house hunting and found a Mediterranean-style cottage on the border of Silver Lake and Los Feliz. The previous owner was an artist who painted a mural at the local school nearby—where Hernández and Leigh envisioned their future children attending one day. Learning the property’s backstory was important to her: “You need to get to know a house as you need to get to know people.”

The couple brought in an architect to consult but, after thinking through several design iterations, decided to take on the project themselves, working from the ground up. “The house has a flow of its own that you can’t really feel until you’re in it,” explains Hernández. “Once we understood how we would live in it, it was easy to choose materials and colors.” She was at the construction site every day during demolition, marinating ideas. “I kept imagining a home that is very cozy but also modern.” The result is welcoming and low-key glamorous—much like Hernández herself. Vast arched window frames original to the structure (the front door was redone in matching pine) fill the large common area with sunlight. Hernández tossed around some “crazy ideas” for the adjoining kitchen and living and dining rooms, but

ultimately realized “all these spaces had to coexist and I didn’t want them to feel overwhelming.” She opted for mostly white walls, with finishings and furniture in muted greens, blues, and pinks that are punctuated with whimsical touches, like a graphic animal-print rug and her own handmade woolen tapestries. The kitchen is an ode to Southern California with its pistachio cabinets o≠set by a marble island, copper-topped barstools, vintagestyle Smeg appliances, and pastel pendant lamps. The pale pink hues extend into the couple’s bedroom, where the walls remain bare, except for a few pieces of black-and-white art to complement the quieter vibe. “The whole idea is that you just go there to sleep and when you wake up, it’s really relaxing and peaceful,” she says.

“I kept imagining a home that is very cozy but also modern.”

Being on the Eastside of L.A., Hernández and Leigh wanted a pool—with a twist: They installed it in front of the house (where there was more room) along with a firepit and fence, so to always be partyready. Hernández often invites people over and makes paella outside. “We stir, get hot, jump in the pool, jump out, keep stirring,” she says with a laugh. The duo also built a basement annex apartment for visitors from Madrid and beyond. In the short time they’ve lived there, a rotating roster of guests have taken up residence—a microcosm of the gathering space created at Ruby Street under their current roof. Now that the house is done and Hernández is in between

recording albums, she’s in constant search of new projects: In addition to taking acting lessons, she’s releasing a small collection of clothing this fall in partnership with the boutique Desperate L.A. “I like being able to wear something all day long, then add a shoe and an amazing handbag and portray a di≠erent energy—but I have struggled to find those pieces,” says Hernández of her motivation behind designing the line. With rompers and jumpsuits that could go from concert to pool party in a snap, the designs channel that up-for-anything vibe. As Hernández describes it, “Upbeat yet balanced, like our home.”

CUR ATED & CAREFREE

For 25 years Sibella Court has

been wowing the world with her bespoke interiors, lively hotels, and clever, carefree approach to both life and work. Her Sydneybased studio, The Society, bears a sign that reads “F*ck Everything, Become a Pirate,” which has become a mantra for the freespirited freelancer. A decade ago she launched her first set of hardware in collaboration with Anthropologie, and now she’s kicking o≠ a second independent line of industrial pieces, including anchor door knockers, shield hooks, and haberdashery scissors. The debut coincides with her new book, Imaginarium, which Court calls “a journey through my image library of objects, travel, color, and interiors.” Add to that a few hospitality projects, her own home remodel, and a surprise wedding to her now-husband, Ben Harper (who runs operations at The Society), and one could say that Court is enjoying her next chapter of success. Often calling herself the “captain” of her brand, Court wears that hat with refreshing irreverence, from her nods to the pirate life to the much-loved “Press for Champagne” doorbell at her Hotel Palisades. Nearly every one of her designs features a curiosity cabinet of objects for people to hold, admire, and marvel at. But while the entrepreneur may be known for her relaxed bohemian spirit and dresses in casual neutrals, she pushed herself to be bolder when remodeling the 1,300-squarefoot Art Deco apartment she shares with Harper and their 4-year-old daughter, Silver. “I get very excited about how attracted people are to the same shades over and over again. It informs their fashion, accessories, car, even hair, but then the default is so often white when it comes to their homes,” says Court, adding that she always encourages her clients to create a beautiful backdrop. “I decided to take my own advice and use color in every room with a no-white-wall policy.”

Pulling from her line of house paints, Court came up with a “subtle but stormy palette.” She chose 10 hues for the entire apartment and stuck to them down to the accessories, a trick she swears works in any combination. Moody, sea-inspired shades of green, blue, and soft gray play o≠ the nearby coast—such as the rich teal sofa in the master bedroom, a “perfect tone to lift the mood.” The distinctive indigo in the kitchen highlights her must-have “humble materials” of zinc, brass, rope, leather, and cane, all of which patina nicely over time. The room became a lab for trying out Court’s new hardware, from drawer pulls to hanging shelves to a custom-made knife rack by blacksmith Saul Tomkins of Coloforge (which is for sale online as of September). A marble island with stamped iron legs and a fixed brass dome lamp she commissioned from California lighting designer Hilary Nagler of Flea Market RX are more examples of her commitment to promoting what she hopes is the resurgence of old trades. (Her father, a master builder, passed on his deep appreciation for brickwork and steadfast materials.)

“I decided to take my own advice and use color in every room with a no-white-wall policy.”

For the patio, Court hired a scenic painter to reimagine the blackand-white tiles at 10 Corso Como in Milan as a graphic statement wall. “Pattern,” she says, “can reflect how you use a space”—and the lively terrace is where most of the entertaining happens. Fortunately it’s outfitted with a bar and fluted, shallow stoneware sink from Tasmania, the perfect spot for mixing drinks or cutting fresh flowers, which she gets at the market every Saturday. Sinks, Court admits, are her greatest weakness. Months back, when Harper told her to go buy a dress for his birthday party (which was actually a surprise proposal–turned– on-the-spot wedding), she returned with a 19th-century marble sink that she’s currently keeping in hiding, vowing it will dictate the look and feel of their next home.

FA L L 2 0 1 8

As for now, Court is content to highlight more found and favorite objects, further infusing the space with personality. The hallway alone is a medley of thoughtfully displayed souvenirs, including a Chinese bench, dip-dyed paper lantern, Japanese pilgrim jacket, nautical rope, and Moroccan rug. Somehow, the pieces come together seamlessly. Whether a repurposed flag for a bed covering or artwork casually clipped up on silk cord rather than framed, Court’s interiors leave her guests with a sense of wonder and delight. “There should always be a concept of play,” says the designer. And from her well-loved imaginarium of a home, she has achieved just that. Opposite page: Dampier Lantern 70 $110 shop.thesocietyinc.com.au; Moroccan Rug from Soufiane Zariib.

I collect them like objects. They all become my life library, which I draw on for inspiration to dream up the interiors and products I design. This alchemy is part history, part reality, and a whole lot of make-believe. At my design studio and store, which is housed in a warehouse from the early 1900s, overflowing

arched bookshelves tickle the ceiling alongside labeled and numbered drawers that were once shop-fitting pieces. Art lines the walls, and the desks are old dressmakers’ tables. The studio encapsulates the timeless essence of a cabinet of curiosities—encouraging you to pick up the things that brim from the many shelves and boxes. Imaginarium is an actual place, as well as a place in my imagination.”

“A colorful house can be subtle, calming, and a beautiful backdrop to layer with your life’s souvenirs,” says Court, who adds character to her apartment with storied collections.

Amped-up pastels and Cubist accessories create a successful pairing. “There’s a modern take, but it’s also casual and comfortable,” says Quattrone of the home.

design enthusiasts,” says Mat Sanders of Consort, the studio–turned–highly customizable furniture line he cofounded with his partner, Brandon Quattrone, that gives customers creative control. The two first met on a Brooklyn rooftop in 2012 the night before Sanders, a longtime digital decor editor, was headed to Los Angeles to launch the lifestyle site MyDomaine.com. “I was immediately enamored with him and his e≠ervescence,” says Quattrone. So much so that he quit his job as an architect at SoulCycle to join Sanders on the West Coast. Within a year, the duo were already collaborating on interiors projects: a mountain retreat in Telluride, Colorado, and a musician friend’s home in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood. By late 2013 they decided to make it o∞cial, and Consort was born. “We definitely have a nonlinear trajectory, but I think that’s what “ WE WANT TO EMPOWER

makes what we do a bit di≠erent,” explains Quattrone of their professional path thus far. A combination of his minimal sensibility and Sanders’s fashion-forward approach has attracted interior design clients ranging from actress-entrepreneur Jessica Alba to hairstylist and Ouai founder Jen Atkin. Despite the success, the duo recently started phasing out high-profile residential projects and brick-andmortar outposts in favor of focusing on their line. Now available only at Consorthome.com, the 44-piece collection channels French modernism through L.A.’s laid-back lens. Each style is shown in its most basic form, alongside anything-but-standard options of color, hardware, fabric, and size. Clearly they’ve found the right formula: Playing with cameo pink velvet, matcha green linen, and dozens of other materials and finishes is hugely helpful for anyone couch shopping (and habit-forming for those who are not).

Moments of calm are punctuated by the odd playful detail, like the hammerhead mounted over the dining table and life-size brass palm tree in the meditation room (an essential for the couple).

The couple’s Larchmont Village loft is the ultimate expression of the polished Cali cool they are known for. After spending night after night perusing Zillow, they zeroed in on the home of their dreams— an open, bright, and airy space that is in walking distance of their go-to co≠ee and brunch spot and neighborhood Italian joint. Concrete floors, huge windows, and a balcony that Quattrone describes as “larger than most NYC apartments” only upped the appeal. “We knew it would be easy to do our thing here,” says Sanders. That meant finding a balance of their personal styles. Sanders lives to add, add, add, while Quattrone is constantly trying to scale back. “We’re always

FA L L 2 0 1 8

drawn to di≠erent things, so it creates a fun mix,” says Quattrone. The result is clean yet layered, where novelty (the shark mount in the dining room was scooped up at a Miami auction) is o≠set by pedigree (a rare Paul McCobb side chair prototype is another prized possession). Pulling from Consort, the home showcases a few favorite designs, like the cozy but elegant Marcel sofa and sleek Admiral dresser—with sensible basics peppered throughout for good measure, such as a simple CB2 sofa bed in the guest room. “We love to break rules and ignore convention,” says Sanders of the breezy curation. “Toying with the unexpected adds personality.”

In life as in work, a healthy dose of irreverence keeps things interesting. This is perhaps best summed up by the gallery wall, where high-low pieces hang from floor to ceiling, including the typically o≠-limits closet doors. Quattrone kicked o≠ the grouping by giving Sanders a large-format print of a rib cage in high-contrast black, white, and gold from L.A.-based Natural Curiosities. “People always comment on it when they come over and say, ‘I never thought I would like something like that, but now I’m rethinking everything about myself!’” says Sanders. Since then their collection has grown to encompass a photograph of a gay pool party from the 1970s and a friend’s painted interpretation of an Instagram post of Sanders dressed up as Iris Apfel. With the demands of a new business pulling them in a million di≠erent directions, making the loft a chill zone is a priority. “L.A. has really gotten into our souls,” says Sanders. “We love a home that allows us to breathe and unwind.” They retreat to their newly minted meditation room—a former spare bedroom now decked out in graphic

accents and a selection of crystals—when they need to reboot. And the couple’s mindfulness practice helps keep Consort’s mission in sight: “It’s about getting together and creating some magic,” says Quattrone. Texture (brass, velvet, glass) and color (peachy pinks and saturated hues grounded by black) unify the space.

ever mind that Leith Clark has been named one of the 25 most powerful stylists in the world, or that she’s collaborated with Mario Testino, David Bailey, and Bruce Weber. Never mind that years ago, after working as an assistant at British Vogue, she founded Lula—a glossy, high-fashion tome featuring such style icons as Marianne Faithfull and Kirsten Dunst—or that she is currently the editor of Violet, a less flouncy, more intellectual take on femininity through the lens of growing older. “At this stage in my life, I want to learn about the women who make me look forward and inspire me,” she says. The aforementioned credentials might lead one to believe that Clark is a black-sunglasses–clad, couture-obsessed cliché of Anna Wintour–like proportions—but nothing could be further from the

truth. Soft-spoken and una≠ected, the Canadian-born powerhouse is a green tea–drinking homebody who prioritizes spending time with her family (husband James Hatt, a production designer, and 3 ∏-year-old daughter Astrid) when not traveling the world styling clients such as Keira Knightley and Zoe Kazan. “We’re both very busy, so we try to do a lot of chilling and reading at home,” she says. “Astrid loves to paint in the garden and play her toy piano.” Clark laid down roots in London after meeting Hatt on a production job more than a decade ago. “We’re both visual and creative people, but we have di≠erent tastes,” she says. “If our style was a Venn diagram, there would only be a small crossover.” One such aesthetic meeting point is their five-bedroom Victorian townhouse. Located five

A vintage cane chair in the bedroom (left) was picked up at Brick Lane Market when the couple first started dating. “James carried it for blocks and blocks over his head to the car. It’s so heavy,” says Clark (above). The hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper is “maybe my favorite thing in our house—definitely the most luxurious!”

miles north of the city in Stroud Green, the area has all the quaint, small-town trappings that appeal to Clark’s romantic sensibility. “At the end of our road is a shop that sells champagne, and across from that is another that sells green juice,” she says, laughing. “What more could you ask for?” Because the property required five months’ worth of work, the family moved to a barn in Surrey while Astrid was still a baby. Every detail of the renovation was a labor of love and a chance to incorporate Clark’s a∞nity for dreamy, woodland-inspired patterns and textures. “We found vintage ’70s Liberty peacock-printed fabric at Kempton Market and upholstered all of the closet doors with it,” says Clark. The surface above the front stairs is adorned with an ethereal House of Hackney wallpaper, while a de Gournay chinoiserie panel holds court

An abundance of florals, oak parquet floors, and reflective surfaces add warmth and texture to the home. The gallery wall in the entrance continues the theme, featuring a portrait of Clark and Astrid by U.K. artist Unskilled Worker and framed butterflies from a school friend of Clark’s.

across from Hatt and Clark’s bed. “I became obsessed with the brand when I was styling a Chanel ad,” she says. “It’s the most extravagant thing we’ve done for this house. Every morning we wake up to a wall of birds and leaves.” Astrid shares her mother’s love for all things flora and fauna; in her bedroom is a printed rug that Hatt had made from a photograph of a daisy field. “She is always picking wildflowers on her way back from school and putting them in glasses all over the house,” says Clark. Also peppered throughout the space are treasured artworks and curios—an oil pastel drawing of witches hanging above the fireplace and a portrait painting by Yelena Yemchuk propped at her desk. Being surrounded by the collection of whimsical pieces keeps Clark feeling engaged and creative. Most of the time she works from home, in her bedroom or the dining room, where “the light is the nicest and there is a record player.” This fall, she launches a new clothing collaboration with Orla Kiely, inspired by Queen Elizabeth II, the Bloomsbury sisters Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell, and bohemian aristocrat Penelope Tree—and “what it would have looked like if all these women

had met.” Otherwise, Clark is busy commissioning and editing stories for Violet, pulling references for the red carpet, planning press tours for clients, and curating mood boards. But when it comes to describing her aesthetic, she refuses to put words to the unique style she has cultivated that speak to the top names in fashion. “As soon as you say what you are, then that’s what you are,” she says simply. “If you don’t say it, you can bend it and alter it and change it.” But one thing is certain for the ever-evolving visionary: “I’ve always been drawn to beauty.”

Ever the stylist, Clark paired silver subway tile, a Sonic Youth poster, and powder pink walls in the bathroom for a cool ’90s moment (right), while a painting of witches lends a quirky note to the living room.

Austin designer Sarah Wittenbraker comes from a long line of fearless women. “My mom has such an eye for mixing patterns,” she says. “She wasn’t afraid to wallpaper the kitchen or upholster something in a bright color.” As a kid growing up in Dallas, Wittenbraker frequented vintage stores and was always pulling together outfits from mismatched pieces. “I’m as inspired by fashion as I am by interiors,” she explains. In addition to her namesake design studio, Wittenbraker oversees Worn + Domestic, a site that posts weekly fashion and home style boards, some curated by friends and colleagues like Austin blogger Camille Styles and Los Angeles stylist Jane Black. She applies similar methods to dressing and decorating, beginning with a black-andwhite base and slowly layering in brights until the mix feels right: “My go-to everyday uniform is black jeans, a white blazer, an oversize statement necklace, and red lipstick.” In her own space, a 1960s brick home in the Tarrytown neighborhood near Lake Austin, she starts with her love for wallpaper. The first pattern the designer chose was of mini fluorescent mushrooms on black paper from British brand 17 Patterns. “I couldn’t a≠ord a lot of it, so I put a small dose in the back of the bar,” Wittenbraker explains.

FA L L 2 0 1 8

“That set the tone for the whole house.” For months, the living room remained mostly black and white until she added a vintage sofa upholstered in a bold floral fabric. Slowly, more colors and textures came in: a powder blue–upholstered bench from Austin vintage store Wendow; an abstract painting by local artist Diana Greenberg; and vintage safari chairs in chrome, brass, and gray suede. Leaving the right amount of breathing room can sometimes prove di∞cult. “Restraint is really hard for me in my own house,” Wittenbraker admits. To balance the busyness, she focuses on the feeling she wants to achieve in each space. In the kitchen, where the family cooks and the kids do their homework, she maintained a simple palette of white soapstone counters, deep blue cabinets, and brass trim work. A series of subtle but distinctive decorative square reliefs carry from the kitchen into the living areas, then outside to the exterior walls and door. In the entryway, the same motif transforms into a graphic Lee Jofa paper covering the walls and ceiling, paired with a botanical print from Austin’s beloved Supply showroom. Curves and nature-inspired patterns soften clean lines, and a mélange of modern and traditional details create recurring themes that don’t feel tethered to any single era.

The home is a collaborative project, informed by contributions from Wittenbraker; her architect, Elizabeth Baird; and every member of the family, including husband Rick and kids Lulu (13), Oscar (10), and Beatrice (8). Encouraging the same sense of self-expression her mom instilled in her, Wittenbraker let the children select their own fabric and wallpaper for their rooms. Lulu chose a coral headboard and Flat Vernacular floral curtains; Oscar opted for a “climbing room,” complete with monkey bars; and Beatrice picked pink for the walls and navy peacock curtains from Tilton Finwick. Family is central to Wittenbraker’s work—her business grew out of the need to reimagine their lives. In 2008 she was working as a freelance writer and doing interior design on the side for fun. The recession hit, and Rick’s department was cut. (Today he works as a partner at outdoor clothing brand Howler Brothers.) With two children—and another on the way—plus limited funds, the couple agreed to try something new. A friend helped secure Wittenbraker her first paid interiors gig—a whole-home design with a tight,

five-week timeline. “It was so much fun,” she says. “I pulled it o≠ with the help of my husband and mom, who came into town to iron all the bed skirts.” That job quickly led to referrals and a fully booked calendar. “Those early years were super-tough,” Wittenbraker recalls. “I felt like I had to take every job to make ends meet, I wasn’t charging enough, and I was racing around with three children.” With the help of a mentor, she restructured her business, hired sta≠, and raised her rates. Her studio is currently in the midst of its first large commercial project, Austin’s Domain Northside shopping center, where she is commissioning large-scale outdoor sculptures from local artists. If bravery is being yourself, in spite of fears and failures, Wittenbraker lives it. In her dining room wallpaper, a little bug appears every so often in the repeat of the climbing-vine pattern, making its way across the leaves. It’s her favorite detail and an apt metaphor for her home. “It’s clean where it needs to be, crazy where it needs to be, and there’s plenty of room to evolve,” she says.

L AY E R B Y L AY E R Inspired by fashion, Wittenbraker often uses clothing as a starting point for interiors. Here, she shares her go-to strategies.

BRIGHTS “It’s very hard for me to buy a little black dress,” she admits. “Instead, I’ll look for a bright color like chartreuse.” Similarly, no room in her home is without a pop of pink, gold, or peacock blue.

B L ACK AND WHITE The interior designer opts for the classic combo as a base for both outfits and rooms. In her hallway, a two-tone pattern from Miles Redd for Schumacher adds graphic punch. “It’s also wipe-able, since my kids leave handprints all the way up the stairs.” Deconstructed Stripe Wallpaper by Miles Redd fschumacher.com.

BRASS “I can’t not have a big, vintage brass and gold necklace,” says Wittenbraker. In her home, brass shows up in the details—the hardware in the kitchen, the handles on the dining chairs, and the barware in the living room. Mack Leather Barstool covered in Kravet Vinyl Fabric from $379 cb2.com.

The act of closing one’s eyes and quieting the mind for a few minutes a day seems like a small gesture, but it can have a life-altering e≠ect. Just ask cult film director and avid Transcendental Meditation (TM) follower David Lynch. His eponymous foundation, which launched in 2005, has provided free TM training to more than 1 million children and adults internationally, with the goal of increasing that number to 10 million in the next five years. The organization began with its Quiet Time program, implementing two 10- to 15-minute meditation practices during the day at more than 50 inner-city schools across the U.S., as well as underserved school communities around the world. Within three months, the benefits were measurable. “There’s an improvement in graduation rates and a reduction in dropouts, suspensions, and expulsions,” says David Lynch Foundation CEO Bob Roth. “Most important, the kids are happier.” From there, the foundation extended its reach to help veterans, prisoners, and women who are survivors of domestic violence. For indie sleepwear brand Sleepy Jones, collaborating with the foundation was a natural pairing. This fall, the company is launching a line of pajamas printed with pine trees (a nod to Twin Peaks) and lightbulbs based on a handsketch by Lynch. T-shirts emblazoned with quotes from the director’s popular meditation book, Catching the Big Fish, and TM founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi round out the collection—which will donate 20 percent of proceeds to the foundation.

“It’s this connection between art and the practice of slowing down and being mindful that made sense for us,” says Sleepy Jones cofounder Chad Buri. “David Lynch really speaks to moments of mystery, whether it’s staring at the bark of a tree or seeing the flicker of a lightbulb; these are entry points for the imagination.”
