As anyone can tell from their impeccably curated instagram feed, 20th-century European design is the chief wellspring of inspiration for L.A.-based design firm “Milan was the cradle of modern decoration,” says Richard Petit of his favorite design capital. “The culture of innovation, academic rigor, and artistry produced one maestro after another.” But for this master bath in an L.A. cottage it was the Theo van Doesburg floors in J.J.P. Oud’s 1918 De Vonk house in the Netherlands that inspired the team. They used annsacks tile to riff on the bold pattern and made it feel refreshingly modern.

jenniferdoebler and Pat Kelly decided to decamp from their Greenwich Village apartment in Manhattan in 2009, and build a new life in a new home with their two daughters, Scarlett and India, in Berkeley, CA. “Berkeley has lots of great old houses that hadn’t been messed with in the 1980s,” Deobler explains. An online search led the couple to the perfect setting for their reimagined vision of domestic bliss: an archetypal Northern California redwood home built in 1915 in First Bay Tradition style, a vernacular dialect synthesizing elements of East Coast Shingle style, American Craftsman, and English Arts and Crafts.

“No matter how grand a house was, Renzo Mongiardino never forgot that a family was going to make a life there and so always managed to make it easy to live in,” writes editor martinamondadori of her grandparents’ home outside of Venice that was restored and decorated by the legendary designer over 50 years ago. Mongiardino rearranged the ground floor of the 17th-century villa in order to make the family’s everyday life more comfortable; and for an Italian household that was, of course, centered around the kitchen. vietriinc ceramic tiles complement the collection of copper objects Mondadori’s grandmother had assembled over her lifetime.

“If you’re simplifying a project, you’re making it stronger,” declares Eduardo Cadaval of cadavalsolamorales, who sees this aesthetic Occam’s razor as the unifying element in the architecture firm’s work. At its most extreme, this surgical simplicity reduces plans to daring geometries, like this Y-shaped pool pavilion on a compound in Tepoztlan, Mexico that pushes indoor-outdoor living to the limits.

When he’s not jet-setting for celebrity clients like kimkardashian and chrissyteigen, celebrity makeup artist makeupbymario retreats to a plush penthouse apartment on the Upper East Side that he calls “a refuge from the chaos of the city and my life." Dedivanovic enlisted the help of designer ryankorban to transform the sleek and modern condo into a home that feels fresh and not overly decorated. “I wanted to channel the new generation’s interest in design and relationship to luxury as something that’s meant to be used and not put away on a shelf,” says Korban. “Mario is so young and successful, and he has such a lifestyle. I wanted it to feel aspirational and a little frivolous—things don’t always have to be so practical.” Take the home tour through the #linkinbio Photo by franparente; text by jenfernand

While many high school buildings might be rather bland from a design perspective, there are others that are veritable works of art—we wouldn’t blame you for mistaking them as universities, private homes, or even castles, in some cases. Grosse Pointe South in Michigan, for example, features a stunning Georgian Revival main building designed by Detroit-based architect George J. Haas. Feeling nostalgic for back-to-school season, we rounded up the most beautiful public high schools in every state of America. See if yours made the list through the #linkinbio Text by stefaniewaldek

Noting her Upper East Side townhouse’s good bones, barneysny fashion director marinalarroude enlisted friend and designer studiogiancarlovalle to help push her toward an aesthetic that’s both bold and playful. Art by Andy Warhol lends a graphic element to a stark space furnished with a vintage Gio Ponti mirror and an A. R. Cordemeijer daybed. To keep the modern aesthetic more approachable, Valle incorporated natural texture. “I’ve always loved the feel of sisal rugs,” says Larroudé.

20 years after L.A. chef Michael McCarty purchased a post-and-beam home by midcentury architect Douglas Rucker, it burned down in the Great Malibu Fire in 1993. Only the pool house and tennis court remained. So he and his wife, artist Kim McCarty, started again with new plans. “We took everything about the original house but worked very hard to get the scale to be perfect,” says Kim. The new version is a perfect example of classic Malibu architecture meets McCarty entertaining magic: white walls for Kim’s art, raw beams, floor-to-ceiling windows, and doors that allow indoor-outdoor living and ample natural light—all topped off with the sophisticated flow of a world-class restaurant.

Fashion designer cjronson and singer/songwriter nateruess may be the poster children for young and in love, but their newly renovated NoHo loft is decidedly adult. “The idea was to take a raw downtown loft and make it look and feel like a grown-up uptown apartment,” Ronson explains, pictured here in their breccia capraia marble-clad master bathroom.

The way toryburch and designer #DanielRomualdez tackled decorating her 15,000 square foot Southampton estate was the way a lot of the large homes were done before decorators played such a role. “Back in the era of the great American country house, from the 1890s to the 1920s, there was no storyboarding,” he notes. “It was much more organic.” Inherited furniture, personal style built on instinct, and a sense of patina built up over generations dictated the design. In a guest bedroom, a leafy pattern by brunschwigfils bursts over the walls and bed, and the perfectly tailored bedding is by leontinelinens and dporthaultparis.

“We felt strongly that we needed to give the space a heart,” says the architect Thomas Heatherwick as he stands in the atrium of Africa’s most highly anticipated building, the zeitzmocaa in Cape Town, which he designed and which will open to the public next week. The building, once a grain silo and, for the better part of a century, the tallest building in sub-Saharan Africa, marks a lot of firsts: It’s Heatherwick’s first project on the continent, his first museum, and the first major contemporary art museum both in Africa and dedicated to African contemporary art.

When it comes to using color, architect-designer indiamahdavi says she has one goal: “To bring some kind of joy and happiness.” Hence her hallmark palette of succulent shades that she describes as “slightly off” are often deployed in velvet, a fabric whose sensual qualities “bring you back to being a human being” in a world that is daily distracted by “the light that shines from inside a computer screen.” That romantic humanism led French fabric house lamaisonpierrefrey to ask the architect to create her first fabric collection. “True Velvet” launches this month with more than 30 colors in cotton and mohair, and solid and patterned varieties.

We got the first look into goop’s first permanent store opening this month in L.A. Goop Lab was designed by romanandwilliams and gwynethpaltrow with a real home in mind; it is complete with a living room that customers are welcome to lounge in, an apothecary for trying on products, a functioning kitchen, plus a greenhouse and a porch. “We see the store as an extension of goop HQ: You’ll see our food editor cooking in the kitchen at events or our beauty buyers trying out the in-store beauty services," says Paltrow.

delphinereedkrakoff bought Clark House in New Canaan, CT that once belonged to eccentric copper heiress Huguette Clark because of its mysterious history and amazing potential. But they transformed it into an airy, modern family home thanks to pared-down designs and consistent upholstery treatment of neutral fabrics. In the master bedroom, a custom hermes bench sits at the foot of the Christian Astuguevieille bed and a Serge Mouille two-arm sconce floats above.

“This is where I took my first steps at 15 months and where I learned to ride a bike a few years later. This is where Peter and I celebrated our wedding in 2006, and where I spent the night before chatting until three o’clock in the morning with my best friend in the yellow bedroom overlooking the long gallery. My parents were married here, too, in 1975 in the little family chapel in the garden, my mum wearing a gorgeous embroidered Valentino dress and holding a simple gardenia bouquet.” Editor martinamondadori invites AD to her family’s Italian villa that was impeccably restored and decorated by legendary Renzo Mongiardino over 50 years ago.

“Even within the open plan, each space feels like a complete thought, a proper room differentiated from the other areas of the loft,” observes John Gachot of gachotstudios who worked with L.A.-based designer Paul Fortune to reimagine a dated Manhattan loft for clients cjronson and nateruess.

Nearly 50 years after its creation, Gaetano Pesce’s revolutionary feminist “up” chair is more relevant than ever. The seat’s bulbous shape, inspired by silhouettes of ancient fertility goddesses and accompanied by an affixed ottoman resembling a ball and chain, was rife with meaning. “It’s an image of a prisoner,” Pesce says. “Women suffer because of the prejudice of men. The chair was supposed to talk about this problem.” Today, the design has developed quite a following: fashion designers lisaperrystyle and maxazria (whose striped up chair-and-ottoman sit in the living room of his L.A. home pictured here) and Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis are collectors.
