The rager I threw with my best friend, Meredith, on our junior year abroad in Paris, after which her <em>bougie</em> Luxembourg Gardens apartment would never be the same. My wedding reception at a Balinese-themed courtyard in San Francisco, complete with a sexy bossa-nova band and the smooth jazz stylings of Marcus Shelby. The <a href="/Design+Inspiration+Lonny's+NYC+Relaunch+Party" target="_blank">Lonny relaunch party</a>&nbsp;last summer at a&nbsp;$12 million triplex penthouse in SoHo. But now that I&rsquo;m a mom and officially on the toddler-birthday circuit, my goal was to plan an event that would be equally enthralling for kids and adults. After all, who better than my friends, family, and neighbors&mdash;my support system for the last four years&mdash;to help me celebrate getting through those intense early years of parenting?</p> <p>To be clear: I&rsquo;ve got absolutely nothing against Disney. Heck, I&rsquo;ve been known to enlist the babysitting services of Elsa and Anna on many, many an occasion (long car rides; unexpected conference calls; lazy weekend mornings. Don&rsquo;t judge). But when it came time to plan the joint birthday party for my four-year-old daughter, Poppy, and my three-year-old son, Rhys, I had something a little different in mind. Because both of my kids loved fairies and forests, I wanted to come up with a concept that expressed their interests and captured their imagination without being overly literal. Thanks to my job at Lonny, I had amazing design resources to draw upon. And of course, this party would be the perfect excuse to have some fun with styling out a few tabletop scenarios. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Little did I know it would turn out to be a truly epic event&mdash;complete with superhero capes, DIY magic wands that actually lit up, decadent brunch treats from a master baker, and a dessert bar for the ages. (Also: topiaries!) Here&rsquo;s how it all came together, with massive thanks to all the players involved.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="NEafKfTRL0L" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="NEafKfTRL0L"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/sEv7rTRZjiZx.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="A brass rabbit and vintage scale as party decor: why not?" /></div> <div class="below">A brass rabbit and vintage scale as party decor: why not?</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="SfCdGxQpHCX" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="SfCdGxQpHCX"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/ZZuAy8Awuzhx.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="My little family in birthday-party mode." /></div> <div class="below">My little family in birthday-party mode.</div> </div> </div> <div class="separator two"></div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE SETTING</h3> <p>In the artistic, industrial-atmospheric neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn, <a href="http://www.curiousjanecamp.com/" target="_blank">Curious Jane</a>&nbsp;is one of those gems that celebrate creativity and childhood in a fresh and engaging way.&nbsp;The brainchild of local mom Samantha Murphy, the company provides classes, camps, and parties and events for girls ages six to 11. &ldquo;Everything we do is project-based and all about tinkering and exploring,&rdquo; says Murphy. &ldquo;Our goal is to remove fear of failure and let the girls create, invent, troubleshoot, and build.&rdquo;</p> <p>With its high ceilings, large windows, and colorful hand-painted fabric panels by Brooklyn&rsquo;s <a href="http://fortmakers.com/" target="_blank">Fort Makers</a>, the Curious Jane studio is a natural fit for an all-ages party. On one side of the space, we set up the expansive brunch table and bar; on the other, the children&rsquo;s craft table, staffed by three patient, personable instructors with an innate knack for storytelling. The theme of the party was <a href="http://www.curiousjanecamp.com/magic-mystery" target="_blank">Magic and Mystery</a>, which brings together &ldquo;surprise, sparkle, sleights of hand, fairy houses, elements of nature, and more,&rdquo; explains marketing and outreach coordinator Melisa Coburn. During the party, my kids and their friends were absolutely enraptured by the projects&mdash;a decorate-your-own superhero cape and a DIY wand with a battery-powered light&mdash;and could have kept going all day, without a single bored attitude or toddler tantrum in the mix. &ldquo;Last summer, we invited girls to recommend projects and themes via our Curious Jane Idea Quest, which inspired popular new classes such as Kitchen Chemistry, Mini Pet Design, and Spa Science,&rdquo; says Murphy. (<a href="/Easy+Kids+DIY+Project+Glitter+Jars" target="_blank">Click here</a> for an easy DIY Glitter Jars project from their <a href="http://www.curiousjanecamp.com/whats-inside/" target="_blank">Spring 2015 magazine</a>.)

Proust&rsquo;s madeleine had nothing on Miette founder Meg Ray&rsquo;s macaron.</p> <p>To welcome guests to the party and provide them with a generous, help-yourself way to create their own goodie bags, I set up a dessert table of Miette goodies on the company&rsquo;s signature jadeite cake stands. (Also in the mix: vintage-style candy dishes and platters from Manhattan vintage prop-rental company <a href="http://www.octavia-brown.com/" target="_blank">Octavia &amp; Brown</a>, and a candy-stripe tablecloth from online party-supply shop <a href="http://www.shopmerimeri.com/toot-sweet-general-party.aspx" target="_blank">Meri Meri</a>. &ldquo;You need both variation and uniformity&mdash;for example, cake stands and serving plates need to be different heights, but of a similar style,&rdquo; advises Ray. &ldquo;You don't want one item to overshadow the others.

It&rsquo;s such a simple, crowd-pleasing meal, with the promise of an entire day ahead to work off the mimosas. Luckily, we had <a href="http://www.runnerandstone.com/" target="_blank">Runner &amp; Stone</a>&nbsp;within easy reach of our party location. Known for their sui generis breads and pastries, baked in-house by Per Se alum Peter Endriss, the restaurant is one of Brooklyn&rsquo;s most popular brunch destinations. Endriss and his team planned a menu of market quiches, salads, baked French toast with homemade raspberry preserves, and all the pastries our group of happy guests could keep down.</p> <p>Riffing off the fairies-and-forests theme, Lonny staffer Sarah Jean Shelton and I styled out a spring woodland table incorporating natural materials such as vintage woods and greenery at various heights. The vintage prop-rental house <a href="http://www.octavia-brown.com/" target="_blank">Octavia &amp; Brown</a>, a Lonny favorite, provided many of the table&rsquo;s structural pieces (trays and boxes), as well as its most eclectic flourishes (old books and brass mice). Textural elements such as moss runners, mercury-glass mushrooms, bark vases, and silk rose pomanders came from <a href="http://www.serenespacesliving.com/" target="_blank">Serene Spaces Living</a>, a fabulous new source for tabletop accessories and home decor. And because I&rsquo;m crazy about boxwood, ferns, and topiaries&mdash;I mixed both fresh and faux for the lush and layered forest effect. Boxwood mats and balls came from Serene Spaces Living, as well as Bunny Williams&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.treillageny.com/" target="_blank">Treillage</a>; and the stunning ornamental myrtles, potted mosses, and ferns were the proud products of Milton Candelario&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.nytopiary.com/" target="_blank">NY Topiary</a>, a must-visit shop in Manhattan&rsquo;s Flower District for anyone who loves unusual plants.</p> <div class="dynamic-widget" data-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget/AJOfBP_fv9m" data-style="width:800px;height:573px;float:none;" style="width: 800px; height: 573px; float: none;" data-widget-guid="AJOfBP_fv9m" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="slideshow_widget"></div> <div class="widget fc-unordered-list-widget w80 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="nZ6ewAJ1kBr" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/list_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="list_widget"><span class="maple">How to Throw a Kids&rsquo; Party with Vintage Decor</span> <p>In this day and age of disposable toys and an ever-changing lineup of animated movie characters, planning a child&rsquo;s birthday party can seem like a daunting task. Here, tips from Octavia &amp; Brown founder Liz Geddes on decorating a memorable celebration with vintage flair.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li> <h3 class="designerTitle">PICK A THEME</h3> <p>&ldquo;Just because you&rsquo;ve decided to skip the <em>Frozen</em> party route doesn&rsquo;t mean you can&rsquo;t have a fun, kid-friendly concept,&rdquo; says Geddes. &ldquo;We love flower and woodland themes in the spring and hot chocolate + sledding in the winter.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> </li> <li> <h3 class="designerTitle">STACK, MIX, AND LAYER</h3> <p>&ldquo;Use vintage boxes and crates to create height-filled displays on food and dessert tables. Layer linens and don&rsquo;t be afraid to flip the boxes upside down and around to achieve the best look. Add vintage cake stands, tins, and containers for a pin-worthy table.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> </li> <li> <h3 class="designerTitle">THROW A PICNIC</h3> <p>Grab a stack of wool blankets and have your guests head to the park. (Look for Pendleton, Hudson, or wool camp blankets at antiques stores in the summer.) &ldquo;We love to stock vintage wicker picnic baskets with wine and goodies for the adults, while loading small retro camping tins with snacks for the kids,&rdquo; says Geddes.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li> <h3 class="designerTitle">ADD CHARACTERS IN SMALL DOSES</h3> <p>&ldquo;Find opportunities to work your child&rsquo;s favorite toy into the party. We love to hide mini superheroes in the table decor and around the event space. At the start of the party, ask tiny guests to keep their eyes out and then collect them before they leave.&rdquo;</p> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w80 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="D-Iv4_wST1s" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="D-Iv4_wST1s"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/w2qz5DWeKVYx.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="An All-Ages Brunch Party " /></div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE DETAILS</h3> <p>Because no party is complete without a disco ball, Curious Jane&rsquo;s Samantha Murphy suspended one over a seating area and set up an impromptu photo booth&mdash;complete with fan!&mdash;so the kids could pose with their light-up wands as their superhero capes billowed behind them. Almost every surface of the space was embellished with a creative element, down to a bathroom wall turned into a gallery of some of my favorite washi-taped photos of Poppy and Rhys. In place of traditional birthday cakes, we stayed artisan and local with two pies from Four &amp; Twenty Blackbirds. As for my children&rsquo;s reaction? &ldquo;This is the best day ever,&rdquo; Poppy announced with her arms around her brother. They may not remember this party, but I sure will.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="3_o_UDTy9qd" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="3_o_UDTy9qd"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/y7l0XrchfNWx.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="Curious Jane's decorate-your-own superhero capes were a huge hit with party guests." /></div> <div class="below">Curious Jane's decorate-your-own superhero capes were a huge hit with party guests.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="psS-a6L1Ryz" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="psS-a6L1Ryz"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/-94pverj-P8x.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="Create a casual gallery wall with washi tape and your favorite snapshots from family vacations." /></div> <div class="below">Create a casual gallery wall with washi tape and your favorite snapshots from family vacations.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="l9-Vq41B5mN" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="l9-Vq41B5mN"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/gTvKHJaVV9Ax.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="An All-Ages Brunch Party " /></div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w80 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="omFsM4Bu4-M" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="omFsM4Bu4-M"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/Sn_-j4y2f9Ox.jpg" title="ALL-AGES BRUNCH PARTY | LONNY.COM" alt="And then there was pie: black-bottom oat and salted caramel apple from Four &amp; Twenty Blackbirds.&nbsp;" /></div> <div class="below">And then there was pie: black-bottom oat and salted caramel apple from <a href="http://www.birdsblack.com/" target="_blank">Four &amp; Twenty Blackbirds</a>.&nbsp;</div> </div> </div> <div class="separator one"></div> Fri, 22 May 2015 10:03:14 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Family+Living+2015/articles/FW-vtY9LLBr/An+All+Ages+Brunch+Party FW-vtY9LLBr A Healthy Memorial Day Alternative to BBQ Burgers <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="kzieIU2Jnxv" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="kzieIU2Jnxv"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/qXP3FEB-bE6x.jpg" title="Fancy summer grilling" alt="Photographs by Genevieve Garruppo/Lonny, Recipes developed by Christina Garruppo" /></div> <div class="below">Photographs by Genevieve Garruppo/Lonny, Recipes developed by Christina Garruppo</div> </div> </div> <p>The smell of hot coals, the <a href="/photos/Pool">pool</a>'s lapping waves&mdash;the easy days of summer are here again.

Just remember&mdash;don't fear the fish head! &nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="08bD05xe1w-" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="08bD05xe1w-"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/aJ9WidigIT7x.jpg" title="Red Snapper" alt="A Healthy Alternative to Barbecued Burgers This Memorial Day" /></div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Whole Grilled Red Snapper<br />Serves 4</strong></p> <p>This recipe can be used with any mild white fish from the market. Make sure the flesh is firm and smells like the ocean, and the eyes are clear.&nbsp;You can do this outdoors&nbsp;or on a grill pan indoors.</p> <p>Ingredients<br />- 1 4- or 5-pound whole fish, gutted and cleaned&nbsp;<br />- 2 lemons, sliced in rounds<br />- 1 bunch fresh thyme<br />- 1 bunch flat leaf parsley<br />- 5 cloves garlic, peeled<br />- Kosher salt to taste<br />- extra-virgin olive oil</p> <p>Bring&nbsp;your grill to medium heat. If you're using a charcoal model, push coals over to one side of the grill. You will start to cook the fish over the coals and finish it on the other, cooler side.</p> <p>Meanwhile, pat the fish dry. Stuff the belly of the fish with the lemons, herbs, and garlic. Let&nbsp;sit at room temp for about 30 minutes to&nbsp;allow for even cooking.</p> <p>Once your grill is hot, rub the grates with olive oil. Rub the fish with a little olive oil and season with salt. Put the fish on the grill in the exact spot you want it; don't touch it for 6 minutes or until the skin crisps up and you can move the fish easily without sticking. Slightly lower heat and cook for another 6 minutes, or until the fish is fully cooked. (If you're using a charcoal grill, cook&nbsp;the fish over the coals. Flip the fish and cook for&nbsp;another 6 minutes on the&nbsp;other side of the grill to finish cooking it without burning the skin.)</p> <p>Once the fish has finished cooking, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow for all the juices to settle so your fish is flaky and moist.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="cqt8L53f9b5" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="cqt8L53f9b5"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/NKr64whz1rxx.jpg" title="Potatoes" alt="Summer Grilling Menu" /></div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Grilled New Potatoes</strong></p> <p>This is one of my favorite ways to eat potatoes. Cooking them in highly salted water makes them flavorful and not dried out. I like to finish them on the grill for a smokey, crispy finish.</p> <p>Ingredients<br />- 1 pound new potatoes, washed<br />- 8 cloves garlic, unpeeled<br />- 3-4 sprigs thyme<br />- 2 sprigs rosemary<br />-salt and pepper to taste<br />- olive oil</p> <p>Put cleaned potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Cook over medium heat. Once the water starts to warm, add salt. Don't boil the potatoes; instead, simmer them until you can put a fork in them but they do not fall apart, about 20-30 minutes. Drain them and let cool.</p> <p>Heat up your grill to medium-high. If you are using a charcoal grill, spread an even layer of coals on the bottom of the grill for direct heat.</p> <p>Once cooled, gently smash the potato to reveal&nbsp;some flesh but still keep their shape.

I had no idea how true that was until I began&nbsp;revamping my&nbsp;<a href="/Decorating/articles/kRgRku90Dc7/Before+After+Editor+Apartment+Makeover" target="_blank">apartment</a>&nbsp;and learned how&nbsp;boring&mdash;not to mention inconvenient&mdash;a naked window can be. Thankfully, Lonny market editor Cat Dash was experiencing&nbsp;the same internal&nbsp;struggle in her own living room after procrastinating on installing window dressings for years. So we set out to change our ways, testing out the custom treatments that are now available through <a href="http://www.roomandboard.com/catalog/custom/custom-window-treatments" target="_blank">Room &amp; Board</a>'s new partnership with the Shade Store.</p> <p>The process&nbsp;began&nbsp;with a round of consultations at the store's Soho location. R&amp;B design consultant Rick East met with us to hash out the many details to consider: our goals, our style preferences, and the amount of fabric&nbsp;needed. East carefully examined before shots of the room, making note of structural obstacles&mdash;a window-height radiator, crown molding, support beams&mdash;and took us through the many options, from pleats and ripple folds&nbsp;to double-track hardware. After a few conversations we decided to pair&nbsp;sheer drapery and a neutral-hued solar shade (pictured above) to keep my space feeling airy and light but also to allow for some privacy. We placed the order, and a few days later a&nbsp;Shade Store representative came to take in-house measurements&nbsp;for the perfect fit;&nbsp;a couple of weeks later my new custom treatments were installed&mdash;all in less than a half-hour. The process was quick, easy, and remarkably smooth, and the new drapery opens up the room and even make the ceilings feel higher.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="9Te3Ti3VjSh" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="9Te3Ti3VjSh"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/GKQOt4p7QT8x.jpg" title="Custom Window Treatments by Room &amp; Board" alt="Lonny market editor Cat Dash's living room pops with&nbsp;custom Roman shades by Room &amp; Board." /></div> <div class="below">Lonny market editor Cat Dash's living room pops with&nbsp;custom Roman shades by Room &amp; Board.</div> </div> </div> <p>The same was true of Dash's experience. She and East chose streamlined Roman shades in dexter dark grey&nbsp;for the twin windows in her Midcentury-style living room, opting for&nbsp;a blackout lining for privacy. The twist: East suggested&nbsp;a pull that&nbsp;lowers shades from the top down as well as the bottom up, which also lets in light. The treatments now add polish and personality in a room that for many years felt unfinished. And so after a painless process, Dash and I&nbsp;found that all of our&nbsp;fears&mdash;the sheer&nbsp;volume of options, the significant cost, the anxiety of getting accurate measurements&mdash;were unfounded, and the rewards were better than we had even imagined.</p> Wed, 20 May 2015 10:45:17 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Decorating/articles/2kgNZDp741z/Before+After+Custom+Window+Treatments 2kgNZDp741z A Spanish Home with Global Style <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w30 no-top-padding" data-widget-guid="6Z-nl1eqctL" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="6Z-nl1eqctL"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/fJRNFeCiXf-x.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="The hallway down a house of visual delights." /></div> <div class="below">The hallway down a house of visual delights.</div> </div> </div> <p><span class="dropcap">T</span>he word <em>eclectic</em>&nbsp;may be overused these days, but there&rsquo;s no better way to describe the work of L&aacute;zaro Rosa-Viol&aacute;n, a Spanish interior designer responsible for some of most fashionable hotels and restaurants in the world. Drawing inspiration from his globetrotting lifestyle and a vast knowledge of architectural history and art, Rosa-Viol&aacute;n creates contemporary spaces that offer glimpses of distant lands and times: for a seaside hotel in Girona, Spain, he reimagined the Mediterranean coast of the 1950s, and for an upcoming restaurant in London, he dreamed up a retro-futuristic Asian metropolis. The common thread in these markedly different interiors is compositional balance paired with cinematic flair, talents honed by Rosa-Viol&aacute;n while studying visual arts in Madrid. &ldquo;I try to bring a bit of exoticism to every project,&rdquo; says the designer, whose firm, <a href="http://www.lazarorosaviolan.com/" target="_blank">Contemporain Studio</a>, has taken on approximately 150 new commissions&nbsp;in the last two years.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="3zTdMrbZA2U" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="3zTdMrbZA2U"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/pB00RoCXf37x.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="The dining room features original boiserie&nbsp;and an expansive table designed by Rosa-Viol&aacute;n's firm, Contemporain Studio." /></div> <div class="below">The dining room features original boiserie&nbsp;and an expansive table designed by Rosa-Viol&aacute;n's firm, Contemporain Studio.</div> </div> </div> <p>His new house in the Eixample neighborhood of Barcelona has exoticism to spare. Filled with jaw-dropping mosaics, moldings, stained glass, and boiserie, the <em>fin de si&egrave;cle</em> residence that Rosa-Viol&aacute;n shares with his partner, Devin Winter, could be the set of a period film. When they discovered the 4,000-square-foot property two years ago, it looked neglected but featured plenty of original details that were remarkable examples of the city&rsquo;s golden era of design and architecture. &ldquo;What we call Catalonian Modernism, which is really Art Nouveau, has a distinct personality,&rdquo; explains Rosa-Viol&aacute;n. &ldquo;The style is a bit kitschy, very uninhibited.&rdquo;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="NqDSWtuId5b" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="NqDSWtuId5b"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/Rw2z51-g8hCx.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="The kitchen island is surrounded in carved wood panels from the Art Nouveau era.&nbsp;" /></div> <div class="below">The kitchen island is surrounded in carved wood panels from the Art Nouveau era.&nbsp;</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="d365GwVY-P0" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="d365GwVY-P0"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/C85SeCjiCvwx.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="Despite the presence of pets, the custom-made sofa is upholstered in white leather and velvet." /></div> <div class="below">Despite the presence of pets, the custom-made sofa is upholstered in white leather and velvet.</div> </div> </div> <p>An extravagant home epitomizing the tastes of Barcelona&rsquo;s bourgeoisie of the early 20th century is exactly the kind of dwelling the couple had in mind. &ldquo;Since we travel so much, we loved the idea of living somewhere that was unmistakably Catalonian,&rdquo; says Rosa-Viol&aacute;n. The dining room, for example, is covered in intricately carved oak panels depicting monkeys, lizards, and baroque plants, not unlike the imagery you see walking down the labyrinthine Gothic Quarter in the city center. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s a very atmospheric home,&rdquo; he adds. &ldquo;At night, with all the lights on, it feels like you&rsquo;re walking into a themed party.&rdquo;</p> <div class="dynamic-widget" data-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget/jmsdupNKfib" data-style="width:800px;height:1200px;margin:0 auto;" style="width: 800px; height: 1200px; margin: 0 auto;" data-widget-guid="jmsdupNKfib" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="slideshow_widget"></div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="FqtIHDWp-sW" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="FqtIHDWp-sW"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/0pQSNPhmN-9x.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="A Spanish Home with Global Style" /></div> </div> </div> <p>While the built-in elements are strictly from the Art Nouveau period&mdash;including cabinetry with stained-glass details and elaborate ceiling moldings in polychromatic wood&mdash;its furnishings demonstrate Rosa-Viol&aacute;n&rsquo;s affinity for a wide-ranging variety of styles. In the master bedroom, a large chinoiserie wall panel from 1890 complements a 1970s wooden nightstand by Alvar Aalto. An enclosed gallery overlooking the back garden is outfitted with a white L-shaped custom sofa, leather-and-wood chairs created by &Aring;ke Fribytter for Sweden&rsquo;s Nelo M&ouml;bel, and a Murano glass chandelier purchased from a Venetian antiques dealer. &ldquo;Almost all the furnishings are Italian or Scandinavian,&rdquo; Rosa-Viol&aacute;n says. There&nbsp;are also pieces designed by Studio Contemporain, such as a stainless steel armoire in the study and an oak-and-brass four-poster bed in the guest bedroom, which is frequently occupied by visitors. (Rosa-Viol&aacute;n and Winter, who&rsquo;s from New York, have a wide network of international friends.)</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="AUo6rnK3uhD" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="AUo6rnK3uhD"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/wWViz8QZB86x.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="A mirrored side table from a Brussels flea market stands next to a Philippe Starck tub." /></div> <div class="below">A mirrored side table from a Brussels flea market stands next to a Philippe Starck tub.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="JXmkBCEzLAP" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="JXmkBCEzLAP"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/BfLX3CyrYRux.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="The guest bedroom's oak-and-brass bed was designed by Contemporain Studio." /></div> <div class="below">The guest bedroom's oak-and-brass bed was designed by Contemporain Studio.</div> </div> </div> <p>&ldquo;People are surprised that we have such a weird home, because I used to live in a more contemporary place,&rdquo; says Rosa-Viol&aacute;n. &ldquo;But we wanted our guests to see Barcelona when they step inside.&rdquo;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="e-nLXmEFgbn" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="e-nLXmEFgbn"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/xxHYHeY826zx.jpg" title="LAZARO ROSA-VIOLAN | LONNY.COM" alt="Crisp white sheets with navy trim exist in tailored contrast to the lushness of the chinoiserie panels installed in the master bedroom." /></div> <div class="below">Crisp white sheets with navy trim exist in tailored contrast to the lushness of the chinoiserie panels installed in the master bedroom.</div> </div> </div> <p></p> <div class="separator one"></div> Wed, 20 May 2015 09:09:03 -0700 http://www.lonny.com/Home+Tour/articles/oimiJf5Jey2/Spanish+Home+Global+Style oimiJf5Jey2 IKEA's New Furniture Wirelessly Charges Your Phone <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="6Q6MjCM1mzp" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="6Q6MjCM1mzp"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/BNXnG8Ymx8ix.jpg" title="IKEA New Furniture Will Wirelessly Charges Your Phone" alt="IKEA's New Furniture Wirelessly Charges Your Phone" /></div> <div class="below attribution">Photos: Ikea</div> </div> </div> <p>It's the universal&nbsp;struggle of our age: You're at 2% battery.

For Austin, Texas&ndash;based interior&nbsp;designer <a href="http://www.kimlewisdesigns.com/" target="_blank">Kim Lewis</a>, the current movement toward micro dwellings&nbsp;has enormous&nbsp;appeal. "I definitely see it as a reflection&nbsp;of the housing industry&mdash;the desire to better find a way to live within your means," says Lewis, who has also worked on high-profile interiors for the Hollywood set (see our recent story on actress <a href="/lonny+celebrity+homes/articles/ayPxLPH9yxm/Open+Door+Policy+Home+Tiffani+Thiessen" target="_blank">Tiffani Thiessen's home</a>). "It also represents a free-spirited philosophy; many young couples want or need the flexibility to travel or to live in multiple destinations. This style of living allows for that." Which was exactly the case for homeowners Aaron and Meredith, who were moving from Colorado to Austin with their two rescue dogs, Olive and Zoe, to open&nbsp;a second location of&nbsp;their&nbsp;urban winery. See how their 400-square-foot home came together on <a href="http://www.fyi.tv/shows/tiny-house-nation/videos/400-sq-ft-wine-tasting-house" target="_blank">this episode</a>&nbsp;of FX's <em>Tiny House Nation</em>, and read on for small-space living tips from Kim Lewis's inspired design.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="LZIIf5MbIbn" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="LZIIf5MbIbn"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/EP6vmuyeuvlx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Designer Kim Lewis on the home's colorful, extra-wide steps, which double as additional seating for outdoor entertaining." /></div> <div class="below">Designer Kim Lewis on the home's colorful, extra-wide steps, which double as additional seating for outdoor entertaining.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="VlvtokIV2aK" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="VlvtokIV2aK"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/T8kFMxoncpmx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Sculptural plants and objets add textural interest and color within the mostly restrained&nbsp;interiors palette." /></div> <div class="below">Sculptural plants and objets add textural interest and color within the mostly restrained&nbsp;interiors palette.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="D68Xt0Qr-SL" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="D68Xt0Qr-SL"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/KIMvYBnDk2Ux.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="A 400-Square Foot House in Austin Packed with Big Ideas" /></div> </div> </div> <p>"Clean lines, rich textures, bold colors" was the couple's request for their new residence, which was built on two trailers connected by a covered breezeway. Lewis drew up the layout to maximize Aaron and Meredith's other primary desire: as much entertaining space as possible. "The challenge is, you're trying to put a lot in a little box and make it functional, livable, and stylish," says the designer, a veteran of several popular television productions. "I drew McMansions on <i>Extreme Makeover</i> every day&mdash;it's so much easier to fit things into larger spaces. But then you realize you really don't need as much as you think."</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="V-uRVwSZpic" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="V-uRVwSZpic"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/y9Uf2cTiFuex.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="A countertop that runs from wall to wall, plus a movable island, gives the couple plenty of prep area.

Open storage and hooks for pots and pans are other good&nbsp;uses of space.</div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE KITCHEN</h3> <p>"Aaron was very adamant about the kitchen not being bulky, with lots of appliances," Lewis says. Two low-profile refrigerator drawers provided one ingenious solution: they supply&nbsp;as much storage as a standard refrigerator while freeing up added space for a countertop.&nbsp;Another important consideration was the weight of the materials themselves. "Because these homes are going to be mobile, things like granite and heavy hardwoods don't work well&mdash;they would make the house too heavy to pull with a regular truck driver's license," Lewis explains. "So while we used Silestone countertops along the back wall, the island is topped with wood so it's lighter."</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="8C2Iv4zKvzw" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="8C2Iv4zKvzw"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/zkegRI1xWCzx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Kitchen accessories in woods and whites look cohesive, not busy." /></div> <div class="below">Kitchen accessories in woods and whites look cohesive, not busy.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="3RsimYyFlQk" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="3RsimYyFlQk"><img src="http://www1.pictures.lonny.com/mp/KhEHYMkKLxqx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Sliding doors turn&nbsp;the deck into a true&nbsp;extension of the home." /></div> <div class="below">Sliding doors turn&nbsp;the deck into a true&nbsp;extension of the home.</div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE FINISHES</h3> <p>Even a color-loving designer like Lewis knows when to stay disciplined. "Generally, I would say that when it comes to tiny homes, you want to minimize color on the inside. I like to use textiles and smaller elements to pull color in," she says. The installation of dramatic black wall tile in the kitchen led to the decision to&nbsp;paint the ceiling in the same hue: "There's a misconception that dark colors make a space seem smaller. But this had the opposite effect&mdash;it elongated the trailer." Open kitchen shelving suspended from leather straps becomes&nbsp;a sleek, high-contrast feature that also stays true to the couple's midcentury-leaning aesthetic. And the flooring, which was salvaged&nbsp;from a 1960s Austin home, serves to underscore that aesthetic.</p> <div class="dynamic-widget" data-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget/zt2GZQEdPPJ" data-style="width:1000px;height:668px;margin:0 auto;" style="width: 1000px; height: 668px; margin: 0 auto;" data-widget-guid="zt2GZQEdPPJ" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/slideshow_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="slideshow_widget"></div> <p>In keeping with the overall "Midcentury meets Marfa" vibe&mdash;a reflection of Aaron's streamlined tastes and Meredith's more bohemian design preferences&mdash;the bedroom is decorated with Guatemalan textiles that pop against the wood floors and white walls. The couple's Eames Shell Chair serves as a handy bedside reading nook; sliding doors and multiple windows make the space feel airy and bright.&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="nLjCFG4ud-x" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="nLjCFG4ud-x"><img src="http://www4.pictures.lonny.com/mp/FBnSsz4Nntfx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="A wall nook for books is also backed by copper paneling; a map above the bed speaks to the owners' interest in travel." /></div> <div class="below">A wall nook for books is also backed by copper paneling; a map above the bed speaks to the owners' interest in travel.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="xnTKLuQMJgi" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="xnTKLuQMJgi"><img src="http://www2.pictures.lonny.com/mp/-DfXvYyHYtPx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Barn-door track acts as a space saver in place&nbsp;of standard bathroom doors." /></div> <div class="below">Barn-door track acts as a space saver in place&nbsp;of standard bathroom doors.</div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE BATHROOM</h3> <p>Perforated-copper panels from Parasoleil were an important design element&nbsp;both&nbsp;inside and outside the home. (Lewis also used them to create a pergola ceiling at the home of one of her celebrity clients, the singer/songwriter Jewel.) Here, they're installed on track to create barn-style&nbsp;doors for the couple's smartly configured bathroom, which features a cheery&nbsp;message spelled out in floor tile. Next to the bathroom, part of the ceiling was repurposed for a cubby area to store the couple's camping and fishing gear.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w100 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="YmQIpWAzgyg" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="YmQIpWAzgyg"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/qgzgN9Jna4Nx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="The two-trailer design allows for storage where a bed is typically located in a single-trailer home." /></div> <div class="below">The two-trailer design allows for storage where a bed is typically located in a single-trailer home.</div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE CLOSET</h3> <p>One of the most innovative parts of the entire design is Lewis's decision to build a storage area on a platform over&nbsp;the&nbsp;trailer's gooseneck. "We used pipe fittings to make a little perpendicular ladder&mdash;and now they basically have a walk-in closet," says Lewis. There's even a&nbsp;combination washer-dryer for added efficiency.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="W476SxugmW6" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="W476SxugmW6"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/hcWLIeulPvVx.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="Pipe fittings are mounted on the wall to serve as&nbsp;clothing racks." /></div> <div class="below">Pipe fittings are mounted on the wall to serve as&nbsp;clothing racks.</div> </div> </div> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain right w40 no-top-padding mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="5kIanfW-BmV" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="5kIanfW-BmV"><img src="http://www3.pictures.lonny.com/mp/TXN4ZWQRKt0x.jpg" title="TINY HOUSE IN AUSTIN | LONNY.COM" alt="The breezeway features built-in doggie beds under a bench." /></div> <div class="below">The breezeway features built-in doggie beds under a bench.</div> </div> </div> <h3 class="article_heading maple">THE OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING AREA</h3> <p>Extra-wide steps, a covered breezeway complete with ceiling fan and doggie beds under a padded&nbsp;bench, and a pass-through bar area are just a few of the fun surprises of the exterior.
