The coastal enclave of Pompano Beach is experiencing a rebirth, with a new pier, on-trend restaurants and developments such as the area’s only on-the-sand luxury condominium Solemar.

Designed to mirror the ocean with a crystalline, wave-inspired façade, the 20-story tower’s resort-style amenities include spa treatment rooms, a wine salon and a media room. Homes showcase open layouts designed to maximize ocean views and are decked out in Italian cabinetry and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, with interiors touched by revered design firm Meyer Davis.

All 105 homes are wired with Darwin, a technology that monitors and regulates air, water and light quality—meant to help residents sleep and feel better.

“Toca Madera is one of our favorite inspirational dining experiences in the Valley. The ambience of the natural greenery, open roof and moving glass walls is the perfect backdrop to yummy craft cocktails and organic Mexican flavors.”

“One of my favorite things to do is sign up for a massage at the Sanctuary Spa at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa and relax for lunch poolside. The hotel is on the north-facing slope of Camelback Mountain and was converted into a sort of organic, midcentury modern-styled boutique hotel and spa. On a random Sunday, when seasonal folks have retreated to cooler climes, I love to go up there for the day, feel like I had a vacation of sorts and enjoy the stellar views of Paradise Valley from the comfort of a lounge chair.”

“The Scott Resort & Spa is the perfect getaway to escape the heat. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you feel transported to a lush, Havana-inspired oasis filled with beautiful art, photography and artifacts. Take a dip in one of the refreshing pools, and don’t forget to treat yourself to the spa!”

To add a playful touch to the backyard, look no further than the Ebba Chair by KAOI and THINKK Studio in Thailand and the Spaghetti Outdoor Lounge Chair from Italian designer Francesco Favagrossa, both exclusively at the MoMA Design Store.

“The Ebba chair was all over Instagram when it launched during Bangkok Design Week 2020,” says Annie Auchincloss, home buyer at MoMA Design Store, of the graphic design-inspired chair with a canvas seat and metal frame in squiggle and zig-zag lines. “It would look equally as good in your living room or backyard.”

The Spaghetti chair’s design dates back to the 1970s, with flexible PVC bands in bright colors perfect for summertime: yellow, orange and red, or blue, turquoise and white.

It’s time to reconnect with the city’s design scene.

NYCxDESIGN’s “An Ode to NYC” exhibition returns this month with a focus on new beginnings. The expansive showcase, now in its second year, revolves around the theme of “Our Future City.” With sights set on what’s next for the creative community, the initiative honors the businesses, culture, and people impacted by the pandemic.

A vibrant poster campaign featuring works by 16 designers will be displayed in 75 showrooms, storefronts and digital screens throughout the city’s five boroughs. Artworks include depictions of Manhattan’s legendary architecture, as well maps, inspirational messages and imaginative spins on Milton Glaser’s iconic “I Heart NY” logo.

All pieces will be available for purchase on Poster House’s website and via QR codes. Proceeds will benefit Silicon Harlem, a nonprofit committed to promoting digital equally in underserved communities.

“As such an important thread in New York’s cultural DNA and overall economy, the design industry once again underscores the power of art as a vehicle for change during this period of recovery,” says Elissa Black, executive director of NYCxDESIGN.

An Ode to NYC” exhibition locations include The Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, Fulton Center, and on board the NYC Ferry’s fleet, as well as in showrooms or retail locations by the following partners: the A&D Building, Artistic Tile, Caesarstone, Cosentino, Design Within Reach, Eventscape, Fabricut, Herman Miller, Kohler, Pindler, Room & Board, Sherle Wagner, The New York Design Center at 200 Lex, The Shade Store, and Tile Bar.

SANDOW, the operator of NYCxDESIGN, is the parent company of Luxe Interiors + Design.

COLOR CUES

Vintage finds, contemporary pieces and pops of color carve out a warm gathering space in the living room, featuring Harvey Probber’s Nuclear cocktail table, Milo Baughman club chairs revamped in mohair, a Homenature Halsey sectional and a Joseph Carini area rug.


GATHERING SPOT

In the living room, Krieg included plenty of seating and spots to place drinks, such as the Holly Hunt sofa from Jennifer West Showroom, the Knoll chaise, a Verdesign armchair, the Magni Home Collection coffee table and an Urban Hardwoods side table. Lighting was an important consideration, and among the delicate pieces are an Ochre table lamp, a John Pomp floor lamp, and sconces by Alison Berger Glassworks for Holly Hunt.


IDEAL RETREAT

A laid-back space that fosters an “on vacation” vibe, the bright open family room’s reflective plaster walls create a soothing backdrop for a cozy seating area anchored by a vintage Moroccan rug from Bungalow. Monarch AV installed smart home technology in this room and throughout the rest of the house, creating an easily livable environment.


BERRY HUES

Designer Dustin Fowler took a light-hearted approach in the living room, where groupings of colorful prints by Georgia artist Susan Hable for Soicher Marin supply modern contrasts to the classic architecture. A Suzanne Kasler-designed sofa for Hickory Chair continues the color story in pink RMCOCO fabric, accented by pillows in Designers Guild’s Shikhara Berry textile.

Walls and ceiling awash in Sherwin-Williams’ Black Fox telegraph a moody vibe in the study, where a Design Within Reach sofa joins several Arteriors light fixtures and furnishings, including abstract cocktail tables in alternating brass and black finishes. The Larsen and Lee Jofa lumbar pillow fabrics were recommended by designer Lee Kleinhelter, who consulted with Lacourse during the project’s initial stages.


GRAND VISIONS

A two-story great room forms the heart of the home. The Tufenkian carpet from Driscoll Robbins Fine Carpets defines the living area, appointed with a Holly Hunt sofa and Joseph Jeup side chairs, all from Jennifer West Showroom, alongside Berman Rosetti coffee tables from Trammell-Gagné. The windows are by Glasbox Windows & Doors, and the doors are by Sky-Frame.


CENTRAL SEATING

In the living room, May arranged the Verellen sofas and swivel chairs, a Baker ottoman reupholstered in a Schumacher pattern, and a Theodore Alexander coffee table beneath a ship chandelier sourced from a beloved local restaurant. A Stark carpet grounds the space.

“Raising the ceilings by 8 feet made all the difference,” says designer Bill Musso, who selected Randolph & Hein swivel chairs from Ernest Gaspard & Associates for the living room. Clad in a charcoal Liaigre fabric from Jerry Pair, they echo the dark oak floors and woodwork by Fagan. A piece by Belgian photographer Isabelle Menin introduces color to the mostly neutral palette.


NEUTRAL NOTES

A carpet by Azadi Fine Rugs and an abstract painting sourced through Isabella Garrucho Fine Art in Greenwich, Connecticut, inject a contemporary note in the living room while still harmonizing with the more traditional lines of the architecture by Mark Candelaria and Meredith Thomson. On the sofa and armchairs is a crisp Larsen solid.


VISTA CENTRAL

The formal living room of this home designed by Fred Wilson and Andrea Goldman still has a lake house vibe thanks to relaxed furnishings like the linen-covered custom sectional by Montauk, slated coffee table by John Rosselli and details like the wicker baskets.

The living room’s oversize, black-stained coffee table from Mandalay Home Furnishings in Garden Grove, California, balances the significant scale of the custom white sectionals. Low-profile Four Hands side tables and two glass Arteriors table lamps preserve the view.

A chandelier with 27 candle-like glass pendants by Shakuff illuminates the double-height living room. Douglas H. Kresge LLC installed the Lutron-powered lighting and the draperies made from a custom woven indoor-outdoor fabric by Calvin Fabrics. The armchairs are vintage Edward Wormley and the rug is by Marc Phillips.


JUST A PEEK

The formal living room was inspired by the couple’s grayscale artwork by Susan Hall. “We pulled the subtle, steely tones of that piece into the space,” says designer Dan Rak of the pearly handwoven rug from Oscar Isberian and the monochrome Dômiers wallpaper by Nina Campbell that frames the fireplace. The chandelier from Cai Designs adds a touch of gold.

In the living room of this Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina retreat, a duo of Dmitriy & Co. Magari sofas, flanking an Andrianna Shamaris coffee table, provides ample seating for the family of five. The room’s semi-gloss ceiling—painted in Benjamin Moore’s Super White—offers a luminous contrast to soft plaster walls by local artisan Suzanne Allen. Designer Jenny Keenan commissioned the hanging lantern through The Urban Electric Co.


HARMONY + RESTRAINT

“The original architect, Ned Sawyer, had a minimalist international-style house in mind,” interior designer David Michael Miller notes. “What’s so compelling is how clean and restrained it is.” In keeping with that ethos, the new owner decorated the living room with a streamlined A. Rudin sofa upholstered in Theo fabric from J.W. Harris Inc. and a Michael S. Smith Inc. armchair from John Brooks Incorporated. With the addition of trays, a Liaigre Galet ottoman, also from John Brooks Incorporated, becomes a cocktail table.


OLD HOLLYWOOD

At one end of the sumptuous living room, a purple Le Jeune sofa wearing Pierre Frey velvet and topped with purple silk ikat pillows from Jerry Pair is pure Hollywood glamour. White chairs upholstered in Donghia fabric flank the Duran coffee table with a borosilicate glass top and silicon bronze base from KGBL in New York. The silk area rug is from Fort Street Studio, also in New York, and artist Carolyn Ray painted the Holland & Sherry linen drapery sheers.

As a central element, water endows the modern dwelling with the quality of an oasis. It’s introduced at the front door with a cubist fountain and a rock-lined pool that ripples from the front to the back underneath a long, glass-sided hallway. In the backyard, the lap pool is mere steps away from the living area and is a frequent gathering spot for the family. “They wanted this home to feel like a retreat, and celebrating the concept of water helps make that happen,” says Walton. “Wherever you are in the house, you can glimpse water.”

It’s fitting, then, that the glass passageway seems to float between the black metal-clad portions of the dwelling, which contain the living and dining areas and the main bedroom suite. According to Walton, the hall provides a transition that’s both practical and soulful. “Walking down it to the bedroom, you have a feeling of lightness,” says the architect. “There’s the sense of going to a space that’s quiet and removed, a place where you can relax.”

The concepts sound lofty, and that was the intent. “This project took a few years to construct,” says general contractor Eben Schreiber. “The clients have a great understanding of design and architecture, and they were meticulous—and that’s a good thing. Their appreciation of quality shows in the details of this house.” Walton calls out the stairway composed of floating treads and a rail that resembles a wide, unbroken ribbon of metal as one of those defining features. “The treads and the articulation of the rail, they speak to the whole dark-light, floating-grounded contrast found throughout the house,” she notes.

Working closely with Walton on the interior architecture, designer Alexandra Loew staged a balancing act herself. The designer, who completed the couple’s primary residence in the southern part of the state, kicked off this project by asking them how they wanted to feel in this home. Their answer was distilled to a single word: harmonious. To engender that feeling here, the designer started by studying the architecture of places of peace around the world, looking at everything from temples to meditation spaces for inspiration. Her goal was to create a sense of tranquility while embracing the husband’s appreciation of minimalism and the wife’s enjoyment of cozy spaces. “They gravitate to black and white tones, so we have a lot of those,” says Loew. “But we’ve added in many textures and finishes that give the spaces a tactile quality. The linen-and-silk carpets, the weathered wood of some rustic antiques and the embossed leathers in this home give it a warm, earthy and inviting nature.”

Operating on the idea that peace is hard to achieve with the presence of visual clutter, Loew worked with Henrybuilt to create the kitchen cabinetry, the bedroom closet systems, the bathroom vanities and the mudroom and ski lockers. “There is a sense in this house of everything being in its place,” she explains. “This is a family for whom physical decluttering leads to mental decluttering, so well-considered storage was necessary for moments of creativity and repose.” With the elements of everyday life behind a door or in a drawer and a soothing color palette in place, the designer was able to highlight what she calls the home’s finest art. “The most important artwork here is the view,” Loew notes. “The landscape is an ever-changing, always beautiful canvas.”

This family plans to enjoy the retreat and its landscape for many years to come. “There were two things that were really important to these clients: the feeling of harmony and refinement they wanted to create here and the fact that this is a forever home they want to leave their children,” says Loew. “All of us understood this is a legacy project.” And, like all good legacies, it is meant to be as enduring and timeless as the mountains that surround it.

King & Queen Suite

You guessed it—the top room category at the recently opened Neighborhood Hotel in Lincoln Park is fit for royalty, albeit the more modern, Harry-and-Meghan type. This boutique property by Rebel House Interior Design is in an 1893 historic building and features only 14 suites, creating a private experience that serves as a base camp for city exploration. Inside King & Queen, which sleeps six guests and has two full baths, happy pops of color everywhere from the walls to the pillows create a cheerful, peppy vibe—and that’s to say nothing of the snacks. Find a stocked kitchen (or request a private chef) to cook a meal in your full kitchen, then lounge by the fireplace.

Peninsula Suite

This ultra-private 3,600-square-foot space on the 18th floor of the Peninsula Chicago received a contemporary face-lift from designer Bill Rooney last fall. Immense windows let in abundant natural light, illuminating a luxurious dining room with a Murano glass chandelier. In the large living room, relax among gilded walls, a fireplace and baby grand piano. Three bedrooms accommodate larger families, while the thoughtful study features Bubinga wood furnishings and a custom leather desk equipped with all your work-from-hotel needs. Outside, the suite’s 2,000-square-foot wraparound terrace is the ideal summer hangout.

Sake Suite

Oases of sophistication in the industrial design-heavy West Loop, the four Sake Suites at Nobu Chicago— designed by Studio K—challenge the rules of hotel design with Venetian plastered walls, wood floors and high exposed ceilings balanced by low furniture. Accents like sisal and wool rugs and mango wood millwork are a texture lover’s dream, emphasizing natural materials with Japanese roots. Surprising details like chicken-wire glass doors entering the bathroom add an unexpected touch that culminates in a space that’s at once calm, contemporary and opulent.
