ANOTHER UNCONVENTIONAL STORAGE SOLUTION

ANOTHER UNCONVENTIONAL STORAGE SOLUTION

Will Nathan House

And that’s not the only instance of

Shea’s clever approach to storage .

She also installed a 35-foot bench that

Nathan can use to stash his belongings.

It boasts a striking, faux brick facade and runs the span of the living and dining room areas.

A SITTING AREA
Considering Nathan’s busy schedule,

a cozy, relaxing area to unwind after a long day

was a requirement, too.

Shea crafted an inviting nook from a small elevator vestibule

(the building’s first floor is a commercial space).

The designer positioned a bench with an upholstered

cushion from Stitchroom in front of a built-in bookcase. LVWood Hickory flooring,

a NAFCO Studios table, and a black and white photograph

taken during one of Shea’s trips to Amsterdam complete the area. ออกแบบบ้าน

TOUR HOMEPOLISH CO-FOUNDER WILL NATHAN’S

Will Nathan House

It takes a certain caliber of interior designer

to oversee the gut renovation of a home owned by a Homepolish co-founder.

Just think about it.

Since 2014, the startup has garnered attention

for its success with teaming clients up with designers who match their style and, more importantly,

their budget. Still, New York-based designer Becky Shea was up for the challenge.

Over the course of seven intense months,

Shea and her team worked closely with

Will Nathan, who is also the founder of Object Limited and Partner at Trail Mix Ventures,

to transform his SoHo loft into an industrial retreat that suits his bicoastal lifestyle.

The project appealed to Shea for two reasons: she connected with Nathan’s business acumen as a fellow entrepreneur

and they share an appreciation for history and architecture.

And so the process of revamping the 2,800-square-foot loft in a landmark early 20th century building began. ออกแบบบ้าน

DARREN STAR’S NEW YORK LOFT IS NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT

DARREN STAR’S NEW YORK LOFT IS NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT

modern living room

Network and studio executives hear 500 pitches a year.

Maybe a dozen make it to your screens. Those are terrible odds. But not for Darren Star. In 1990,

he launched Beverly Hills, 90210,

a prime-time soap opera about teenagers who create a kind of family. He followed that with Melrose Place,

about another self-created family,

this time of young adults. Then he introduced Sex and the City, the first series to showcase unmarried

career women who lean on one another,

not on men. Along the way, he became an icon: a writer who invented a genre.

At first glance, Star’s longtime friend Lee F. Mindel has designed a Manhattan loft in a

discreet building just off lower

Fifth Avenue that looks more like an urban retreat for a monk than the New York City base of a media impresario.

It reads as a rhapsody in white and gray:

brick walls, as Mindel puts it, “limed to create a veil of lightness,” freestanding millwork room dividers that look like

“floating sculptures,”

unadorned windows that

celebrate the neighboring buildings and fire escapes and serve, as Mindel says, as “framed urban art spaces.” รับออกแบบบ้าน

FASHION DESIGNER LISA PERRY GOES BACK TO THE FUTURE

Spend any time at all with fashion designer

Lisa Perry and it quickly becomes clear that,

in addition to her love of fashion, she has a serious passion for interior design. So when she was ready to showcase

her work in a book, Perry—along with publisher Martine Assouline—decided to feature, yes,

her dresses, but mostly her homes, including a vacation retreat in the south of France.

Assouline, a well-known tastemaker,

was impressed from the moment she visited Perry at her Manhattan penthouse.

“So many homes have no personality,” Assouline says. “This was different. Lisa’s

world is so aesthetically—how do you say?—consistent.”

Anyone who is familiar with her fashion line,

which is inspired by her collection of 1960s looks by designers such as André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin,

will notice that Perry’s residences have a similar Pop Art feel.

With bright white as the backdrop,

she adds jolts of color and blue-chip contemporary art.

“I’m a girl who loves a theme,” she says. รับออกแบบบ้าน

DISCOVER LOFTY VIEWS IN ONE OF NEW YORK CITY’S

DISCOVER LOFTY VIEWS IN ONE OF NEW YORK CITY’S

Living room, Room, Interior design, Furniture, Building, Property, Ceiling, Wall, Table, Coffee table,

In the era of the skinny, super-tall skyscraper, Herzog & de Meuron’s 56 Leonard stands out—literally. Not just because it looms 821 feet above TriBeCa, a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan known for its 19th-century cast-iron low-rises, but more so for its bizarre shape. Made of uneven cantilevered blocks—no two floors are the same—the design becomes progressively incongruous toward the top. Taken as a whole, it looks unstable, almost shaky, which is why it’s now affectionately referred to as the Jenga tower, after the block-stacking game. “This building was iconic before it was even built,” says the interior designer Richard Mishaan, who can see the expressive concrete-and-glass structure from the conference room of his downtown studio. “It’s an extraordinary feat of engineering.” What Mishaan brought to a sprawling apartment there with four terraces, austere interior architecture, and panoramic views was a similar kind of balancing act.

Mishaan designed the space for a young family. He played to the parents’ avidity for contemporary art and glittering gemstones while providing stimulation for the children in the form of wild patterns and bright colors. “You can’t be too slick in a family apartment—kids have to be kids,” he says. That said, he sidestepped a “Fisher-Price child-friendly” palette with a scheme of rich hues that would appeal to just about any age group. สถาปนิก

THIS SHOWSTOPPING NEW YORK FAMILY HOME IS DECEPTIVELY GLAM

THIS SHOWSTOPPING NEW YORK FAMILY HOME IS DECEPTIVELY GLAM

gideon mendelson house tour

After a young family of five living in Greenwich Village

decided to move into a new apartment

that would keep them in the Manhattan neighborhood

but better fit their growing number,

they sought out interior designer Gideon Mendelson, who had designed their original home .

For this project, Mendelson used neutral tones

in the common areas, like the living room and the kitchen. In smaller spaces, he took risks with pattern—

witness a faux marble–painted floor and a wallpapered ceiling in the foyer.

The black dining room pops with a gold ceiling, a dramatic effect that contrasts with the adjacent ivory living room.

Mendelson studied architecture,

and that training influences his design approach.

He creates rooms where form comes first and contrasting

textures give spaces their shape. Usually, he says, it takes some time living within a space for clients

to understand the full impact of the design.

“When we’re done with a project, the client is of course happy with how it looks, but that’s just the initial reaction,”

says Mendelson, who waits to hear their reaction several months later. “They might call to

say that they just had a cocktail party in the house and the circulation worked beautifully and we were able to have a good time.

Or they’ll say, ‘My son is doing so well,

he’s flourishing in school, and it’s the way you designed his room.’

To me, that is so satisfying to hear.” สถาปนิก

FOR THIS RENOVATION, THEY DITCHED THE SHARK TANK

FOR THIS RENOVATION, THEY DITCHED THE SHARK TANK

alexandra loew   venice beach

When Alexandra Loew was hired to overhaul the interior of a gargantuan contemporary house in Marina del Rey,

California, she had her work cut out for her.

Designed in 2006 by the late architect Michelle Ertzan, the home had an elegant Le Corbusier–style

facade in white plaster with steel casement windows.

But inside, it was outfitted with a 10,000-gallon shark tank and a glittery basement discotheque, among other extravagances.

The result, as described by the real estate website Curbed, was “an assaulting jumble of bad finishes and weird layout.”

Turning this screwy temple of madness into an elegant abode

for her clients—a family of six—was going to be a heavy lift,

but Loew was prepared.

The Los Angeles–based designer trained as an architect at SCI-Arc and UCLA and cut her teeth working for Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne’s firm Morphosis.

It was a mix of that pedigree and her study of Corbu’s

early houses built in and around Paris,

including Ozenfant House and the Villa Savoye, that helped inform her approach on this project.

What was required of her and her collaborator Hope Alexander was nothing short of a full gutting of the interior—shark tank and all.

From her home in Los Angeles,

Loew told ELLE Decor about her vision for this modernist home.

TOUR THIS GLAMOROUS, ART-FILLED L.A. MANSION

TOUR THIS GLAMOROUS, ART-FILLED L.A. MANSION

Patio

Despite the extensive renovation,

much of the architecture that the couple

initially fell in love with remains. Visitors enter past white columns adorned with baroque reliefs,

leading into a double-height atrium that glows in the neon lettering of artist Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon.

The illuminated sculpture hangs below the original lace-like millwork with an archway on each side,

offering a peek into the sun-drenched interiors beyond.

“It’s not easy to make a beautiful old house comfortable for contemporary living,” Fong says,

commending the couple for preserving

the essence of the mansion history while bringing the interiors up to date. Sonya,

on the other hand, describes a much more intuitive process: “I just wanted to hang on to everything

original that was good.”

It is one of the more colorful elements in a house that hews to white walls and soft gray mansion

wool rugs—neutrals that accommodate,

rather than compete with, newly acquired works of art. “Rugs to me are like your favorite jeans,”

Fong explains. “It doesn’t matter what you put on top of them if you get the right one.”

Sonya says she never worries about

how an artwork might clash with the decor. She does, however, have to answer to her children’s budding connoisseurship.

“They certainly have opinions,” s

he says with a laugh. “They see things through different eyes. I’ve noticed that as I get older—I’m in my 40s now—my kids help to keep my eye a little fresh.” รับออกแบบบ้าน
