#AD100 designer @roseuniacke gave an 1880 house on London’s storied Tite Street—that Chelsea lane of terracotta-red houses where Oscar Wilde so artfully once lived—a delightful splash of color. “It’s like being inside an apple,” the designer smilingly says of the verdant, hand-blocked wallpaper in the living room, which was spotted in the Victoria and Albert Museum archives, reproduced, and recolored for the historic home. “My clients were keen to respect that history but didn’t want an academic re-creation of an Aesthetic Movement scheme,” Uniacke explains.

After traveling to the @fourseasons resort in Kona, one couple decided they wanted a place of their own in the magical Hawaiian area. “They kept sending me pictures and saying, ‘But we don’t really like the houses,’” says #AD100 designer @rodmanprimack of @rpmiller, who was in the middle of designing the clients’ NYC apartment. Pastiches of clichéd Hawaiian style, none felt special. And after a summer of disappointed searching, Primack suggested that the couple, serious collectors of art and design, build something they would really like. The result, in collaboration with architect Tom Kundig of @olsonkundig, is a modern home that can host 20-plus family members and friends, but doesn’t feel big and fussy. “It’s full of amazing pieces, but at its heart, it’s a beach house,” says Primack. In a guest bathroom, a @hellajongerius sheep chair sits beside a @duravit tub. See the rest of the home through the #linkinbio Photo by @dominiquevorillon; text by @shaxrielger

Most famous for having been the "Winter White House" of John and Jacqueline Kennedy, this 1923 Mediterranean-style villa, perched above 200 feet of prime Atlantic coastline in Palm Beach, has been reimagined through a careful top-down overhaul. To direct the renovation of late society architect Addison Mizner’s historic façade, much of which is landmarked, the home's new owner brought on longtime collaborator Andrew Sheinman of @pembrookeandives. “This house is part of the rich history of Palm Beach—it is fun to think of all the people who have spent time here and have walked these halls,” says the owner of the home, where President Kennedy is said to have formed his cabinet, written “Profiles in Courage” and his inauguration speech, and spent one of his last nights before his assassination in Dallas. “We kept much of the original architecture of the home, but created a completely new interior,” she adds.

For @nateberkus and @jeremiahbrent, the one space that seems to deviate from the distilled masculinity of the rest of their L.A. home is the master bathroom. It features hand-painted murals by @jmobley67 along with architectural details of a Prunella marble richly veined in deep purple and brown. “The stone’s a little weird for us, but we loved it,” Berkus confesses. “It has an old Venetian quality, and that influenced the molding profiles.” The molding and panels from @wtrwrks frame a @signaturehw tub and @duravit sink.

When #AD100 duo @rodmanprimack of @rpmiller and @olsonkundig were tasked with designing a family’s home in Hawaii, they noted the clients were “very comfortable with letting things age and develop a patina.” That included the architecture. Architect and designer thoughtfully chose materials and finishes that will weather the tropical climate, and the entire roof can be opened so that trade winds cool the house. “In no way is the structure meant to be hermetic,” Primack declares. A colossal chandelier of bronze branches adorned with porcelain blooms, by @dwisemanstudio, hangs in the main house’s sitting room. And a big George Nakashima cabinet purchased at auction lines the far wall. See the rest of the home through the #linkinbio Photo by @dominiquevorillon; text by @shaxrielger

Amid the glistening skyscrapers of downtown New York sits one structure that stands apart for its organic façade, a stack of hewn bluestone slabs that takes structural cues from its neighbors but bucks traditional materials. Now, one of the townhomes in 12 Warren, designed and developed by @ddgpartners, has an equally unique interior. The developers enlisted @carlos.junqueira, founder of the beloved Brazilian design gallery, @espasso, to outfit the triplex unit. Junqueira worked in tandem with designer Cristiana Mascarenhas of @inplusinc to devise a rich, yet livable interior that showcases the best of contemporary and midcentury Brazilian design.

For a family's home in Kona, Hawaii, landscape architect David Tamura originally imagined vertical palms lining the pool. But after a trip to a nursery plantation decided to use specimens growing in a natural curve—to dramatic effect.

Comedian @sebastiancomedy and artist @lanagomez's L.A. home designed by @kellywearstler is chockablock with color and pattern. “They both love color, and their personalities are so unique,” explains Wearstler, who worked closely with Gomez on the project. “And Lana was pretty much up for anything.” While the couple was down for decorating with art-forward furniture and blue-chip oddities, of course, there was one thing that neither Gomez nor Maniscalco wanted to budge an inch on: comfort. Their current sofas in the living room, custom-made by Wearstler and upholstered in a @claremontus patterned fabric intended to diminish the seating’s hulking silhouettes, are a whopping three and a half feet deep. Below, Wearstler turned a painting by Gomez into a rug fabricated by @therugcompany.

“We go for a very clean, masculine look. We don’t like to live with a lot of color,” @jeremiahbrent says. “Or any!” @nateberkus swiftly chimes in. As for what constitutes clean and masculine in the couple's new L.A. home, the designers layered rustic furnishings of wood and stone, juxtaposed with more tailored Continental pieces. In the dining room, 1950s Jacques Adnet chairs join a 19th-century English table, and circa-1970 Georges Pelletier ceramic pendant lights float above. A painting by Matt Connors hangs atop a Directoire limestone mantel. See the rest of the home through the #linkinbio Photo by @thefacinator; text by @mayer.rus; styled by @lawrenhowell

#AD100 duo @rodmanprimaack of @rpmiller and @olsonkundig designed two houses for the same family, one in Hawaii and one in Long Island. The designer and architect's success on both projects boils down to the desire—and the discipline—to keep it simple. “Whenever things start to get complicated, Tom asks, ‘What would a farmer do?’ ” says Primack. “That question always brings us back down to earth.” Adds Kundig, “You can overthink, overengineer, and overcomplicate anything, but you don’t have to.” See both homes through the #linkinbio Photo by @dominiquevorillon; text by @shaxriegler

As a new crop of boutique lodgings reminds us, living in style is as easy as checking into a hotel. @snohetta’s “the 7th room” cabin in the sky at Sweden’s @treehotel is one such, and not only does it make for a stunning getaway, it also sets the scene for aurora borealis gazing.

It's Poppy's world, @nateberkus and @jeremiahbrent are just living in it. When hunting for a new home, the designers were allured by the majestic 200-year-old oak tree rising in the backyard of this Hancock Park property. “We pictured Poppy, and eventually the rest of our family, playing under that tree, and we thought this was a place we could put down roots,” Brent says. But the clincher for Berkus and Brent was an encounter with the then–home owner and her eldest daughter, who were sharing a bottle of wine in the kitchen. “Jeremiah and I had the exact same thought—that we’d like to raise kids who want to hang out with us when they grow up. There was a lot of love there, and you could feel that energy,” Berkus says.
