The Open-Air Arrival AN ENTRY HALL THAT DOESN’T abandon the outdoors? How very Florida. The Lars Bolander-designed home features a broad foyer that remains open to a loggia on the far end, inspiring designer Alizee Brion to create a total embrace of the tropical landscape. Hand-painted palms and a terrazzo path pick up where Jobe Lopez’s evergreen entry garden leaves off for a welcome that feels like a mystical walk through a palm forest. Trending: Quiet Rooms CALL IT THE RISE OF THE SCREEN asylum. “More and more, clients are asking for quiet spaces inside their homes,” says designer Sarah Magness, who turned a second-floor study into a technology-free meditation room (right). Similarly, in a detached garden casita, Keith Baltimore and Marva Kalish banished the idea of a guest suite with all the…

the ultimate outdoor idylls

❶ CHANNEL ST. BARTS: Jonathan Savage drew upon his visits to the Caribbean island to lighten a previously dark cabana, draping the rear wall in a breezy white sheer, inviting sunlight through slatted Indonesian teak, and fitting the ceiling with thatched panels. ❷ SCREEN OUT DISTRACTIONS: On the master balcony, Alessandra Branca fashioned a soft privacy screen from a striped indoor/outdoor fabric from her new collection. “It’s an oasis within an oasis overlooking a beautiful garden,” she says. ❸ LURE IN THE LANDSCAPE: Joe Lucas mixed an array of organically inspired elements on the terrace, from textural rope and bamboo to banana-leaf patterns and woodland faux-bois, giving the natural world an esteemed seat at the table. ❹ EMBRACE THE WILD: Drawing inspiration from the bougainvillea’s free-form roots, designer Colette van den Thillart took…

the shell seeker

PATTERNS IN SEASHELLS have always been some of my favorites,” says Madrid-based artist Andrea Zarraluqui, whose delicately exuberant designs often capture the nuances of sea life, from schools of fish to branching corals. Here, grayscale depictions of scallops, scotch bonnets, and striped bonnets bring the shells’ innate curves, angles, and shades into sharp relief. And for Zarraluqui, who grew up near the Andalusian coast, it’s tenderly autobiographical. “In my childhood, everything related to the sea,” she says. “It brings sweet memories to me.”…
