Furloughed during the pandemic, Miami-based interior designer Kenzie Leon Perry turned lemons into lemonade when he started his own firm, Ze Haus Interior Design Studio, and launched a spirited collection of throw pillows, drapery, fabrics and wallpaper recalling the vibrancy of Miami and the Caribbean. Here, he shares his colorful approach.

How do location and culture influence your pieces? I worked in Jamaica and throughout the eastern Caribbean for an all-inclusive hotel as an interior designer for more than six years, so I’m directly influenced by the culture, people and environment. Having worked with rigid hospitality brand standards while employed at corporate design firms, it was important for me to flip the color narrative by introducing bright and bold hues in the Caribe collection.

What inspired the collection? My Miami neighborhood, Buena Vista West, which is a part of the Little Haiti community. I hand-painted yardbirds (the chickens roam my neighborhood) wearing headdresses and fedoras and surrounded by sugarcane, a Caribbean delicacy grown in the Florida Everglades. The collection has three coordinating patterns as well as original painted portraits of Caribbean people.

Favorite item in the collection? The Plis Kann print, consisting of sugarcane stalks arranged in a chinoiserie pattern, because it blurs cultures with an Asian feel.

What’s next? I’m working with a New York wallpaper manufacturer to produce, market and sell an exclusive wallpaper line designed by myself.

Recently opened at the Commodore Perry Estate in Austin, Lutie’s Garden Restaurant adds one more great reason to visit the lush property.

Designed to meld warm hospitality with the jovial spirit of its Jazz Age legacy, “Lutie’s is delightfully old-fashioned, like the best version of country club-meets-charming garden party,” says creative director and designer Ken Fulk.

Eye-catching details include tumbled black-and-white stone floors and a green latticework ceiling hung with plants; a grand oak bar lit by retro Murano glass chandeliers (above); custom-upholstered furnishings like tufted teal barstools and freestanding scalloped banquettes covered in a bespoke floral print; plus wood-and-brass café tables and chairs with a ticking stripe seat. Head outside to linger even longer on classic wrought-iron pieces covered in Lutie’s signature florals.

RH’s newly unveiled RH Dallas, The Gallery on Knox Street is as much an experience as a destination. The 70,000-square-foot, tri-level space not only houses one of the largest collections of home furnishings in the world, but also features a dramatic rooftop restaurant and park, wine bar and in-house interior design services.

As RH Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Friedman states, “RH Dallas, The Gallery On Knox Street represents our ongoing quest to revolutionize physical retailing with architecturally inspiring spaces that blur the lines between residential and retail, indoors and outdoors, home and hospitality.”

With that in mind, the new structure’s striking Venetian plaster exterior is lined with French doors opening onto inviting courtyards and terraces. Access each level via a grand double floating staircase, and definitely head all the way to the top: The third floor reveals the restaurant and opens onto a green roof park inspired by classic European gardens, studded with a series of intimate RH Outdoor lounge spaces.

Headquartered in London, leading British interiors brand OKA—which was founded in 1999 by Sue Jones, Annabel Astor and Lucinda Waterhouse—has debuted its first-ever American location in Houston. “It’s been our dream to bring OKA to the States since the very beginning,” says Jones. “And Houston was the perfect fit for us—a big city in the heart of the U.S. with residents who already live by the OKA ethos that a beautiful home is designed to be enjoyed with friends and family.”

The new 9,000-square-foot space houses all the essential ingredients required to bring the British way of life into the home. Product highlights include The Chronicle Collection of home fragrances with candles made by Cire Trudon and OKA icons like the Stafford dining chair, hand-crafted rattan accessories and the blue-and-white Kraak China Collection. Additionally, look for the elegant, whimsical tableware collaboration with American fashion designer Adam Lippes.

Oak Farm Vineyards, a 70-acre California estate in the heart of Lodi’s celebrated wine region, is a dream event locale. Its historic barn is available during temperate months, and the Club Room works for small gatherings. Now Oak Farm’s owners, the Panella family, have added a 2,000-square-foot Barrel Room for events, as well as a commercial kitchen. The interior features natural wood finishes, rolling pendant lights emitting a warm glow, and an 11-foot antique wood bar. “This area feels grand, with vaulted ceilings and lots of light,” says Heather Panella, co-owner and general manager, who spearheaded the design with her mother-in-law, Dorothy Panella, co-owner and managing partner. “We envision this room to be used for all types of private parties, corporate events and small receptions,” Heather says. “We also anticipate that it will be used for our own wine club events as well as seasonal festivities.”

The lobby and living room at Aspen resort The Little Nell have always been among the chicest meeting spots in town, but a new redesign by Luis Bustamante Studio of Spain quite literally casts the spaces in a new light.

The lobby sports lightened-up wood finishes and introduces a motif of striking geometries, seen first in round brass tables that rest atop a geometric-patterned rug. The split-level living room beyond features new furnishings along with bold paintings by Bustamante, formerly a professional painter and sculptor.

“Because Luis Bustamante’s background is in sculpture,” says the design firm’s Julian Castillo, “he conceives space as a whole piece of art, where there is a strong interplay between the materials, lighting, furniture and artwork. Then there’s the place: In response to the climate in Aspen, especially in winter, the first thing you’ll feel here is coziness—the feeling of being embraced, warm and protected.”

In other words, all the vibes a storied ski resort should deliver.

Spring Bungalows nod to the stunning setting with indoor-outdoor bath areas, and the Historic Cottage complements its trio of bedrooms with a stone fireplace and a covered deck where you can unplug and take in the view.

Growing up in Shanghai, Cosette Liu worked as a barista and embraced the way the coffee shop felt like a collective space for story sharing. When she moved to Chicago in 2017, she sought to bring that concept to the city—and particularly to the artist community—with her new shop, Living Water Tea House.

“I wanted to create an open and calming space for people to share their stories and learn about a new culture,” she says. Having traveled extensively to tea farms and factories throughout East Asia, Liu learned from local planters and the process of growing and making tea; she serves some of her favorites, such as Dong Ding Oolong from Taiwan and Uji Matcha from Japan, in her Little Italy shop.

Beyond tasting tea and enjoying East Asian-style pastries, visiting Living Water is a chance to experience the handiwork of Chinese artisans: Think handmade teacups—including Shino ware, Jian Zhan and Dehua porcelain pieces—as well as bowls and plates available for purchase.

“We often ignore the importance of objects that surround us,” says Liu, a ceramicist herself. “I want to shift the attention by making these everyday objects a little different.”
