AD’s September 1988 issue was the first to feature the private homes of top fashion designers. (“Our researchers say this is a first in magazine publishing,” editor Paige Rense wrote in her letter at the time.) There was Yves Saint Laurent’s Paris home decorated by Jacques Grange (1), James Galanos’s Neoclassical home in the Hollywood Hills (2), Zandra Rhodes’s Victorian townhouse in London (3), Sonia Rykiel’s Paris salon (4), Geoffrey Beene’s Art Deco-filled New York apartment (5), and Hanae Mori’s house in Tokyo by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Kenzo Tange and British designer David Hicks (6).

Designed by architectural firm @fergusonshamamian , the elegant structure of this Italianate mansion in Los Angeles provided designer @madelinedstuart with a classical canvas to create gracious yet inviting spaces filled with antiques and traditional details. Stuart covered the walls in opulent textiles and painterly effects to create depth and dimension within the rooms: A stenciled pattern was nearly sanded away to add nuance and softness to the living room; walnut paneling was installed in the library for coziness (above)—and added heavily researched custom pieces that were designed to be stylistically accurate but also make the house comfortable for family gatherings and quiet moments alike. “People like to hunker down and feel cozy,” Stuart says. “No one wants to feel like a guest in the palace.” Take a tour of the space via the link in our bio.

Building a house from the ground up is a major undertaking for anyone. But for former TV executive Sheila Bouttier, the process was nothing short of revelatory. While overseeing the construction and decoration of her family’s home in Los Angeles, a modern stone-walled cottage surrounded by gardens, she found a new passion that led to a completely unexpected career path. Just over a year ago, Bouttier opened @galerieprovenance , a design gallery specializing in vintage furniture from Europe. The idea came to her after making several trips to France, Sweden, Denmark, and the U.K. in search of pieces by the likes of Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, and Kaare Klint, whose lean sculptural designs could complement her unique art collection.

“I’d always wanted to do a dark-red library, so I started with the joinery and everything else came after,” says @hannahcecilharden of designing the den in her London family home. Her father’s company, wall coverings house @degournay , had recently established a hand-embroidering studio in Calcutta, and she decided this would be an opportune place to showcase the craft, choosing one of de Gournay’s @abranca designs in a custom colorway of teal, scarlet, and saffron. The space is outfitted with @vaughandesigns sconces, and an antique bench wears a @libertylondon print. Discover more of the home through the link in our profile.

For their client’s Italianate mansion in Los Angeles, designer @madelinedstuart and architectural firm @fergusonshamamian helped free the space of faux-Mediterranean tropes. “Los Angeles teems with faux-Italianate residences, scattered throughout its most sought-after neighborhoods,” Stuart writes in her new book “No Place Like Home,” released this month by @rizzolibooks. “Fortunately, my clients were extremely familiar with significant examples of Italianate architecture.... This was never going to be a house that could be described as Tuscan modern.” The elegant structure provided Stuart with a classical canvas to create gracious yet inviting spaces filled with antiques and traditional details. In the living room, carefully curated antiques—including a pair of 18th-century Tuscan lanterns, 18th-century Italian bergère chairs, and 1960s tole lamps—surround a gilt bronze cocktail table made by French artist @paula_swinnen.

Embracing is the word Rudy Weissenberg uses to describe his and @rodmanprimack ’s maximalist approach in thir Mexico City home, and it would be hard to improve on, especially as it applies to color. Many of the rooms are enveloped in subtle gradations of a single shade: aloe green for the study, a saffron kitchen, ultramarine in the master bedroom, a coral guest bath. (above) The effect, Primack says, echoes of some of his favorite Milanese apartments. “I don’t understand why everyone’s so afraid of using color,” Weissenberg adds blithely. “I think correct color creates space and emotion.” Above, the guest bath is covered in custom Mexican tile while an @anndraneen mirror and @fabien.cappello lamp from @agoprojects decorate the space.

Inside a white clapboard Hidden Hills house with a view overlooking the city lights of Los Angeles, Scott Disick ( @letthelordbewithyou ) has crafted a warm yet pared-back space filled with midcentury gems. Disick’s interest in interiors and furniture began as a teen when he read design magazines and wished for a Minotti sofa. “But then for a pretty long time I stopped caring, because I didn’t really have any place to [express] it,” he says. “Once I was doing my own house, it came back to me and I started remembering all the magazines I used to read, the furniture brands, and different eras." Back then he liked Italian midcentury; now he likes French midcentury. "Things change over the years, but I’ve always loved furniture,” he adds.

For @annehathaway and husband Adam Shulman’s California country house, #AD100 designer @pamelashamshiri of @studioshamshiri used the 1906 Swiss chalet–style architecture as a jumping-off point for the fanciful, decades-spanning interiors. “We were dealing with a California fantasy of a Swiss chalet, built as a hunting lodge and a winter getaway, so we looked at a lot of historical Swiss imagery,” she explains. Above, the terrace is outfitted with a variety of outdoor furniture by @liefgallery. Take a tour of the house through the link in our profile.

From @archdigestpro : In the latest episode of Behind the Design, William Sofield and @studio_sofield vice president Emma O’Neill invite AD PRO inside their Manhattan office. The #AD100 firm's studio in the historic Schermerhorn Building in NoHo is "part workspace and part Wunderkammer," as AD's @mayer.rus describes it in the September issue of the magazine. A walk through the office offers an opportunity to revisit mementos from the firm's layered history: A Popsicle-stick basket that Sofield made at age 18 here; vase-shaped lamps the practice designed for a New Yorker Oscar party in the '90s there.

As the daughter of @degournay founder Claud Cecil Gurney, @hannahcecilharden grew up immersed in a world of glorious hand-painted wall­paper. Not surprisingly, the director of global marketing and development for de Gournay designed almost every room in her London family home from the walls in. But by the time Gurney got to the second children’s room, she’d gone through pretty much every color of the rainbow. So a grisaille African landscape is instead surrounded with pops of primary accents: cobalt curtains trimmed with tomato-red pom-poms, canary-yellow framing, and a graphic black-and-white carpet.

Soon after its 1957 introduction, Eero Saarinen’s Pedestal table for @knollinc was everywhere, from modern homes across the nation to commercial interiors. A custom version with marble top, terrazzo base, and functioning fountain was devised for Saarinen’s iconic Miller house in Columbus, Indiana. A fleet with polished bronze tops and black enameled aluminum bases was sent to the Four Seasons restaurant in 1959. Recently, they were sprinkled throughout Saarinen’s 1962 TWA Terminal, reborn as part of the TWA Hotel at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, above.

In their Mexico City home, @rodmanprimack of @rpmiller and Rudy Weissenberg have crafted a space to show collectors what living with adventuresome contemporary design can look like. Embracing is the word Weissenberg uses to describe the couple’s maximalist approach, and it would be hard to improve on, especially as it applies to color. Many of the rooms are enveloped in subtle gradations of a single shade: aloe green for the study (above), a saffron kitchen, ultramarine in the master bedroom, a coral guest bath. The effect, Primack says, echoes of some of his favorite Milanese apartments. “I don’t understand why everyone’s so afraid of using color,” Weissenberg adds blithely. “I think correct color creates space and emotion.” Also pictred in the study above is a steel-and-stone sculpture by Alejandro Paz and pendant by @pedroyjuana.
