lighting trends 2019

ECLECTIC AESTHETIC MODERN MIX RUSTIC REFRESHED TECH SMART ECLECTIC AESTHETIC Individual. Personal. Unique. You want your lighting to reflect your personality. Sensational light fixtures reflect your individuality, creative spirit, or global outlook. For eclectic tastes, lighting pairs traditional and funky, modern and vintage, or bright color with sleek shapes. The mix can be subtle, combining rustic and industrial elements. Or the combination can be spectacular, integrating crystals, aged metals, and sinuous shapes. MODERN MIX Sleek lines and chic materials—with up-to-date touches—define contemporary lighting designs. With nods to classic design elements, reinvention guides the clean-lined style of modern fixtures. Geometric shapes interact with metal and wood finishes for a sophisticated industrial edge. Punctuated with black, white, neutral, and metallic accents, modern lighting acts as a cohesive design element and appealing focal point in airy, open-plan spaces. RUSTIC REFRESHED The cozy…

mastering millwork

ELEGANT HOMES: What factors contribute to great millwork design? JORGE CARRANZA: Scale is essential. Millwork is sometimes applied in transitional spaces or used to define storage, and it shouldn’t feel like you designed the four walls and then tacked on storage or wall paneling afterward. It’s also important to make sure your choice in millwork style aligns with the style of the home. Millwork is often implemented into a design to update an existing home. It can create a more modern feel inside a traditional home, for example, but you don’t want to feel like you’re walking through two different homes. Maintaining cohesiveness is key. EH: What trends are you seeing? What styles are clients gravitating toward? JC: As with architecture, there’s a shift toward embracing seamless, clean lines. People are still looking for…

fresh vintage

Ben and Jenna Sietsema’s newly purchased 1921 Dutch Colonial had a lot going for it—especially if you didn’t venture inside. Located on a channel between two lakes and backing up to 12 acres of wooded park, the house with its barnlike gambrel roof and flared eaves turned heads in an East Grand Rapids, Michigan, neighborhood of traditional-style homes. “The lines of the home were just terrific, so the goal was to keep the exterior as close to the original as possible while updating the interiors,” says interior designer Jean Stoffer, who teamed with architect Jeff Visser on the project. The directives: Play up the farmhouse feel in a light-filled, modern way and connect the interiors with their nature-rich surrounds. New shutters, copper gutters, asphalt shingles, and a front porch honor the architecture’s…

the road less traveled

You can’t judge a book by its cover. Nor can you judge a house by its exterior—at least not Jared and Sabrina Livermore’s Michigan residence. Classic cedar-shake siding and arched windows lend the facade a traditional cottage look. But as you step through the front door, that quaint facade quickly gives way to downright sumptuous interiors. Luxurious finishes and layers of pattern evoke a sense of another time and place. And that’s no accident. Every inch of the home was meticulously planned by interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins, who helped the Livermores execute their vision of Paris-meets-Morocco in the heart of the Great Lakes State. “The goal was to produce something very tailored and French with neoclassical hallmarks, and then layer on top some Bohemian, Eastern-inspired flair,” Jenkins says. The worldly endeavor…

from the editor

Great architecture is the foundation of good design. It narrates the first chapter of a home’s story—establishing the voice of each room, introducing the key characters, and setting the tone for what’s to come. There are few who weave an architectural tale better than Alabama-based architect Jeffrey Dungan. When tasked with designing a new lakefront home that would match the splendor of its setting, Dungan began as he always does—by studying the topography, views, and light. His goal was to create spaces that flow effortlessly from one to the other, leading guests on a journey through the house toward the magnificent views (“Lake Escape,” pages 30–37). Interior designer Liz Hand Woods then used a tapestry of materials to create living arrangements that complete the story. In Dallas, architect Mark Hoesterey and interior…
