announcing the milieu 2020 designer showhouse

Several years ago, when Pamela Pierce, the founder and editor-in-chief of MILIEU, first conceived of a future showhouse in Houston, she always knew that the charity she would choose to benefit from the event would be Clayton Dabney for Kids with Cancer. “It’s very dear to my heart, and I was proud to have served as a board member for years,” says Pierce. The stated mission of the Dallas based charity, which also operates an active Houston branch, is to provide “needy families with children in the last stages of terminal cancer, assistance in creating everlasting memories by providing last wishes, gifts, special events, family travel and financial assistance with household expenses.” Pierce adds, “Now that we’re hosting our first showhouse, I’m happy to know that a significant portion of…

village life

AS A EUROPEAN, Benjamin (a.k.a. Benni) Frowein, understands New York. As President of Schumacher fabrics, he understands, too, how to make a house very much a home. His apartment, on the second floor of a classic nineteenth century townhouse in New York’s West Village, is small, with a wrought-iron-ladder fire escape serving as an occasional terrace. “This is all I could wish for in New York,” he says, “with views from the front to other townhouses, and in the back into a green courtyard. This is New York, but I’m awakened by birds twittering. Honestly, I love it.” Upon moving to Manhattan from Berlin, following working stints in China, South Africa, and a variety of European cities, Frowein was intent on creating what he calls, “the perfect, but typical Manhattan apartment…

Katrin Cargill, European Editor for MILIEU, hosted our first workshop, during Focus/19 at London’s Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. In a presentation entitled “Colour, Creativity & Cocooning,” Cargill welcomed to the panel three acclaimed tastemakers of our time—Bernie de Le Cuona, Founder and CEO of the de Le Cuona brand; Beata Heuman, the noted interior designer; and Harald Altmaier, the prolific floral designer, photographer, and former Creative Director of Pulbrook & Gould. The three guests at the sold-out afternoon program, which took place on September 17th at de Le Cuona’s space in the Centre, shared their personal perspectives on the elements that define interiors. Following the discussion, the audience asked questions of the panelists, and guests were treated to a showing of de Le Cuona’s “Rare Alchemy” collection of fabrics. Materials…

through the lens

Miguel Flores-Vianna can’t stop looking at the world. But as one of the world’s most prolific photographers, including being a MILIEU contributing photographer, he doesn’t always like what he sees. “I take photographs the way I do… to record things as I feel they should be, rather than as they are, as though I want to help the viewer imagine better versions of the worlds and characters in each and every one of those images,” he writes candidly in his new book, A Wandering Eye: Travels With My Phone (Vendome; $45). Flores-Vianna may be a man of few words, in this book anyway, but every photograph here works as a visual narrative. A phone atop a chair in a Normandy castle, an array of copper pans against a wall in…

editor’s say

Home is one of my favorite words. Another favorite is Family. My home reflects the way my husband and I live there, while it is also a comfortable place where we welcome—among others—our grandchildren, other relatives, and friends. Many people—MILIEU readers and colleagues on the magazine’s staff, as well as other friends and family members—have asked me over the years to publish my own home. To be honest, I’m not big on self-promotion; I shy away from it. But I am grateful for and flattered by all of the requests to show the work I’ve done in my own home. So, with this Winter issue, the first of our 2020 editions, I am sharing my home. I welcome all of you to take the tour with me in these pages. The interior designers…
