1. FRANKIE, WILL, AND OLIVE KOPELMAN AT HOME IN NEW YORK.2. A HOUSE BY PETER MARINO ON MIAMI BEACH’S STAR ISLAND.3. EIESHA BHARTI PASRICHA AND HER DAUGHTER IN LONDON.4. SHONDA RHIMES’S L.A. SWIMMING POOL.5. AT FASHION GROUP INTERNATIONAL’S NIGHT OF STARS."Renovating a house in real life is not like it is on TV. On TV, the home renovation takes place during a clever 30-second montage while a Stevie Wonder song plays. The actor playing TV Shonda holds up swatches and nods, peers at tiles and nods, uses a sledgehammer on a wall and smiles… and never loses patience or the...

1. SUPERMODEL ERIN WASSON FOUND A TERRAZZA ON EBAY FOR HER MALIBU HOME. (1. CHRISTOPHER PATEY)2. CUSTOM TERRAZZAS IN MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD’S PALM SPRINGS SCREENING ROOM. (2. DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN) 3. KELLY WEARSTLER’S SAND-HUED SOFAS. 4. DE SEDE’S TERRAZZA DS-1025. Swiss designer Ubald Klug was known for taking on unconventional projects. There was his so-called bed for working, a prefab housing prototype, a study for the cockpit of a French airline. So, in the early 1970s, when Klug presented the furnituremaker de Sede with a fresh idea, it’s no surprise that he put forth something groundbreaking, pun intended—a sofa that resembled a pile of...

flavor pairing

1. A PLACE SETTING AT LAUREN BUSH LAUREN’S FEED SUPPER (FEED PROJECTS.COM). 2. MIDNIGHT SKY PITCHER ($100) AND MUG ($44). 3. BUSH LAUREN IN RALPH LAUREN AT THE FEED SHOP & CAFE, WHICH SHE DESIGNED WITH WEDDLE GILMORE. Bridging the Anglo-American gap has always been a Ralph Lauren specialty, but it’s safe to say the fashion legend is now upping the ante. Lauren was recently named the first American fashion designer ever to be made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, joining the company of U.S. presidents. And just in time to toast his new title,...

1. JUNG WITH A RECENT WEAVING AND HER SIDEKICK, SHADOW.2. SUNLIGHT FLOODS HER L.A. STUDIO, ILLUMINATING TAPESTRIES IN PROGRESS.3. EXPERIMENTAL METAL AND GLASS CASTS OF JUNG'S TEXTILES. At Mimi Jung’s Los Angeles studio, several looms reveal hundreds of hours of work. In one weaving, gauzy mohair seems to creep across the weft, like a live edge. In another, highlighter-yellow rope threads through thick poly-cord. “I can work an entire day on just two inches,” she says of her slow, solitary practice. Though the textile artist has long been realizing commissions for the likes of Yabu Pushelberg, Philippe Malouin, and Jamie Bush, she’s...

the french connection

“If I can tell a story about craft, then I am happy,” reflects Paris-based designer Raphael Navot, who has translated his love of bespoke construction and finely tailored details into a new furniture collection for Roche Bobois. Whereas one table reveals a patchwork top of meticulous oak parquetry, another bears a sculptural form hand-coated in concrete. Side chairs, meanwhile, sport backs in different heights, silhouettes, and fabrics, encouraging mix-and-match schemes. And a curvaceous chaise has been upholstered as tightly as a tennis ball—a flourish sure to bring a smile to Navot’s face. roche-bobois.com ■...

island time

THE NEW POOL AT HOTEL LE TOINY'S BEACH CLUB. (ALL IMAGES COURTESY OF RESPECTIVE COMPANIES) Pedicured toes are officially back in the sand on St. Barts, where beloved waterfront hotels have reopened after Hurricane Irma damaged the island in 2017. This past October, Hotel Le Toiny unveiled a complete restoration, with eight additional villas and a spectacular new pool at its secluded beach club (letoiny.com). Le Sereno, meanwhile, has debuted its own makeover, including rebuilt modernist bungalows, a new spa and fitness center, and a reimagined restaurant that practically extends to the water’s edge—barefoot dining encouraged (serenohotels.com). And more transformations await,...
