@evanyurman, chief creative officer of @davidyurman, and his wife Ku-Ling spent years house-hunting in upstate New York before they happened upon the perfect spot: an old bluestone quarry perched on the side of a mountain with nearly 200 acres unfolding beneath it. Enlisting @moschellarobertsarchitects they redesigned and expanded the existing structure to fit their aesthetic and familial needs. The interior of the home is now wrapped in linear slabs of wood and concrete that simultaneously project coolness and warmth. He and Ku-Ling collaborated on the decorating, which features a revolving roster of midcentury pieces, from Ib Kofod-Larsen and Hans Wegner chairs to Noguchi lamps, all in honest, authentic materials.

Inside a light-filled Brooklyn row house, fashion designer @ullajohnson and her family live in laid-back elegance. Many of the walls are finished in a blush-hued pearlescent plaster, and the hearths feature colorful marble inlays inspired by Italian mosaics. Living finishes, such as unlacquered brass hardware and soap-coated wood floors, add to the layered design. “The touch of these is like velvet,” Johnson says, brushing her feet along the Douglas-fir planks laid out in a chevron pattern across the parlor floor. “When I design clothes, all I think about is, Well, it’s beauti­ful, but how does it make you feel? That, for me, was an organizing principle in this house as well.” In the master bedroom, an organically shaped mirror by @rogangregory, a close family friend, hangs above the mantel, which showcases delightful woodshop sculptures by two of the couple’s children.

@rubycity was born in a dream. Months before her death in 2007, the late San Antonio artist, patron, and collector Linda Pace had a vision of a hilltop complex with towers like crystals. Upon waking, she sketched her fantasy, later tapping #AD100 architect Sir David Adjaye (@adjaye_visual_sketchbook) of @adjayeassociates to adapt it as a hometown showcase for her trove of postwar and contemporary treasures. “I call it a little temple for art,” Adjaye says of the nearly 14,500-square-foot complex, which opens to the public October 13. Constructed in collaboration with local firm @alamo_architects, the building, its sculpture garden, and its plaza are, true to its name and Pace’s vision, all red, with tinted concrete surfaces that sparkle thanks to embedded glass. (The team conducted upwards of 20 tests to ensure the steadfast shade.) Outside, the structure seems to refract as visitors move around it, its angular shape shifting from monumental to intimate.

When Crown Princess Marie-Chantal (@mariechantal22) of Greece moved into her parent’s 1913 Manhattan townhome, she tapped legendary designer @francois_catroux to freshen it up. The house’s stonework, moldings, and paneling were all preserved, but out went the gilded leather wall coverings, heavy curtains, and red velvet sofas trimmed in passementerie, all dismantled meticulously and placed in storage for some future day. White, gray, and taupe hues now canvas nearly every wall. “We wanted to start with a clean slate and see the rooms for what they were, then decide what kind of furniture could sit nicely in them,” Marie-Chantal explains. In the entrance hall, a custom sofa in the style of Jean Royère, a Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne side table, and @donaldbaechler artwork decorate a corner.

At @poppydelevingne and @caradelevingne’s intoxicating Los Angeles retreat, the sisters’ divergent personal tastes come into high relief in the design of their individual bedroom suites. Cara’s bedroom, above, is a moody affair, reminiscent of a proper gentleman’s club, albeit one with serious sex appeal. “The room feels like the Playboy Mansion with a touch of Art Deco and a David Hicks pattern thrown in for good measure,” Cara says of the heady vibe. Above, an artwork by Jonathan Yeo hangs over a custom sofa. See more of the home from our September issue cover story through the link in our profile.

Beauty-industry billionaire @anastasiasoare of @anastasiabeverlyhills has a strong passion for design and is her own interior decorator. Going from room to room in her hilltop estate, a visitor is introduced to splendid pieces from midcentury designers, including Gio Ponti, as well as the likes of Paul Evans and Hans Wegner. She is particularly fond of Evans, saying, “He was such an artist—an American artist. His pieces are so unique and he has two periods: brutalist and cityscape. I like the brutalist.” These pieces are first introduced to Soare’s home and then, after some time, reupholstered to fit the space. In the master bedroom, above, a Federico Munari–designed sofa has been refreshed in moss green, and two Italian chairs have been reborn in crushed velvet. “I thought that I needed some color in the bedroom and the green worked with the green outside,” she says. “I think the two chairs are so cool looking; they look like bugs." The Pucci de Rossi–designed side table is the same color as the crushed velvet. "I thought that worked so perfectly.” See more of the home through the link in our profile.

When @phoebecalliope and Nicolas de Croisset’s North Fork, Long Island home was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy, the couple opted to build anew, tapping #AD100 architect @toshiko.mori to devise a modernist house that would both survive coastal flooding and blend in with the local vernacular. “We are both fans of modern architecture, but we wanted to create something that worked in this context,” says Nicolas. Building on the original cottage’s footprint, Mori devised a two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot house, with a shingled exterior that nods to traditional East Coast summer homes and an asymmetrical hip roof. “The house looks different from each side, with different proportions, so it’s not static,” says Mori, who elevated the structure eight feet off the ground (well above the flood level) to create a shaded outdoor room. Inside the home, window walls wrap the beach-facing façade, making you feel, Phoebe notes, “like you’re on a boat.” A square skylight, meanwhile, bathes the mezzanine loft in sun while recalling the work of James Turrell.

Sylvie Johnson’s Paris atelier brims with books—more than 700, by her estimate. There’s a 19th-century technical guide to weaving, and reference books that range in subject matter from Japanese textiles to Donald Judd. She credits such volumes—and the mentorship of a haute couture weaver—with teaching her a new craft when she left the art world some 15 years ago. Studying complex techniques, then experimenting on a small hand loom, she eventually created samples that could be produced at large scale by a team of weavers. #AD100 maestros like Lee Mindel, Annabelle Selldorf, and Jacques Grange took notice, becoming loyal clients. And just last year, the rug company @meridastudio tapped her as its creative director. “Without the technique, you don’t have freedom,” says Johnson, who has impressed the artisans at Merida’s Massachusetts mill with her know-how. Four collections in, she has pushed those experts beyond their comfort zone with her approach. Learn more about the design sensation through the link in our bio.

“I am a romantic futuristic, not a nostalgic,” says #AD100 interior designer @jacquesgarciaofficiel; for him, the past is not just inspiring but forever alive. This is evident in his 17th-century Sicilian monastery, Villa Elena, where exaggeration and elaboration are the rule rather than the exception. Above, the walls of a temple that stands at one end of the property’s glamorous swimming pool have been lushly painted in emulation of the garden room of Rome’s Villa of Livia, and through the doorway, a Jacob-Desmalter daybed wears a velour corduroy.

“We wanted the house to be elevated and elegant, but it had to be a real living space that was not too precious,” explains fashion designer @ullajohnson of the Brooklyn row house she shares with husband Zach Miner and their three children. To help her achieve this delicate balance, Johnson tapped #AD100 architect @elizabeth_roberts_architecture and Peter Marino–trained interior designer @alexisbrowninteriordesign_.

@anastasiasoare, of @anastasiabeverlyhills, discovered that she is drawn to furniture that subscribes to the “golden ratio”—which is the same rule that she uses when shaping brows. “I didn’t understand why I was so attracted to [Italian midcentury modern designer] Gio Ponti until I found a book about him and learned that his work is based on the golden ratio,” she says. “I use the golden ratio to create the perfect shape on my clients’ faces. And he uses the golden ratio on his furniture.” Soare first purchased the land for her oasis-like home in Beverly Hills, which borders her main estate, to guard her south-facing views. She then constructed this two-bedroom house for entertaining, importing 160 slabs of Italian marble to decorate the surfaces. The light-filled living room (above) is brimming with midcentury pieces, including a Hans Wegner–designed “Papa Bear” chair and a Vladimir Kagan–designed couch.

From the AD Archive on @archdigestpro, April 2006 issue: Harmony and proportion pervade a Dallas estate and its gardens, showing that classicism is at home even on the range. Finished on the cusp of the Depression in 1929 and designed by the noted Revivalist architect John Scudder Adkins, the house was occupied by the same generation of the same family of American diplomats and industrialists who originally built it before Nancy Cain Marcus came upon it. After she purchased the estate, the University of Dallas professor tapped New York-based @petermarinoarchitect to brighten the home while maintaining its original bones. “The house belonged to a very good housing stock from the ‘20s and wasn’t in any way a bad copy of a chateau,” says Marino. “The proportions and layout were more American.” Take a tour of the home from the 2006 issue of AD on the new digital archive, exclusively available for AD PRO members.
