Timeless Luxury | North America’s Finest Victorian Manors

If ever there were an antithesis for contemporary design, Victorian architecture would be it. From turrets and towers to spindles and brackets, ornamentation is the telltale characteristic of these cherished homes.

Victorian manors can often be found cheering up neighborhoods, with warm and whimsical colors inviting visitors and residents alike to cozy up in more traditionally defined rooms.

Their complex roof lines—with distinctive gingerbread trims—are each their own unique blend of playfulness, timely elegance, and grandeur. As North America embraced this architectural era without abandon, it plays host to some particularly stunning estates.

Transform Your Space: Curating Art for Your Home

Your home serves as the outward expression of your inner-self, something of a vessel for your spirit. To capture that essence, clear structure, a thoughtful palette, and ambient lighting hold key roles; but it’s what you display in this space that makes it unique. Curating art for this blank slate is what makes a home uniquely yours.

Perhaps you’re a strategist, focusing on pieces with a kind of visual mathematical precision; maybe you’re a minimalist, preferring one or two bespoke pieces where the light hits them just so; or it could be that you’re a bona fide enthusiast, peppering your dwelling with an eclectic mix of oils and photography, not to mention a strategically-placed sculpture or two.

If you’re unsure of where to start when it comes to art, you’re in luck—the home itself is one the best starting points when looking for curation clues. After all, everything from the white quartz of kitchen counters to industrial-chic finishing touches can inform your art collection. Consider your abode a look book for inspiration, and transform it from blank slate to bespoke gallery. No gallery-white walls necessary.

Identify Your Taste

ONE Sotheby’s International Realty – Contact Alexa Iacovelli for more information

Some things in life speak to you, and you alone, and that can lead to feeling torn between aesthetic aspirations and authentic representation when decorating your home. In theory, you may love the idea of sharp, mod looks and lines, but in practice, find yourself choosing bold colors and organic shapes.

The same can be true of art curation. You may admire the broken grid gallery walls in a recent issue of Wallpaper*, yet in a gallery, you’re drawn to a single, enveloping piece commanding the space. Instead of trying to conform to an idea of what should be into your home, consider what instinctually draws you in.

Focus on Mood

Gulf Sotheby’s International Realty – Contact Leigh Williamson for more information

How do you want to feel when you walk into a room? Elated? Relaxed? Inspired? Just as you took great care in finding a home with an infinity pool to end your days on a mellow note, equal attention should be given when seeking poolside art to complement it. Perhaps the wave-like quality of a smooth marble sculpture reminds you of peaceful shores, or maybe the mirrored shards of a mixed-media piece in the library help shift your focus to self-reflection.

You can embrace, amplify, or transform moods with the right curated collection. Art can shape not only how a room looks, but also how it makes you feel.

Play Matchmaker

Sotheby’s International Realty – Montecito Brokerage – Contact Suzanne Perkins for more information

You have this room in your house that’s truly magnetic. When friends and family are introduced, they immediately get it. There’s something about the way the furniture frames the window, or textures you’ve added throughout—it simply works. Now you just need to add some final polish by finding that perfect finishing touch.

When you’re searching for new pieces to fit the bill, bring mementos of your favorite rooms with you—think photos, fabrics, swatches, or even small hardware. Trained in the art of curation, gallery directors can help create an encompassing artistic voice for your space from similar textures, colors, or cues. Sometimes the smallest slice of similarity is a match worth marrying.

Frame it Right

Sotheby’s International Realty – Wine Country – East Napa Street Brokerage – Contact Ginger Martin and Gregg Lynn for more information

Framing your new favorite piece isn’t simply about the physical frame. In fact, your burgeoning collection may not require wall mounting at all—it’s about how it works within the space. Great arrangements draw in the eye and invite it to explore nearby, but they continually loop you back to a focal point.

Decide what you want the focal point in your room to be. It doesn’t have to be the art, but it could be a breathtaking view, elegant handcrafted side table, or even a prominent lighting fixture. Wherever you want your eye to start and finish, frame it with complementary—but not overpowering—furnishings and works, so you keep coming back to your favorite spot.

However you decide to curate for your inner-sanctum, let it reflect your personality and show yet another side to how you love to live.

5 Innovative Home Trends from CES 2018

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas continued the trend we’ve highlighted in years past towards new and exciting connected devices for the home. Of particular note this year is the integration of other key technology segments.

Voice Assistants

TCL’s Roku-Enabled “Alto” Smart Soundbar

As evidenced by the proliferation of Amazon Echos and Google Homes throughout the world (not to mention the iOS counterpart, Siri, introduced over 6 years ago), the sprint towards Star Trek-level voice control continues unabated. CES this year highlighted hundreds of devices powered primarily by Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa (with Microsoft’s Cortana bringing up the rear and Apple’s Siri practically non-existent), with one of the most practical and useful being a Roku-enabled Smart Soundbar by upstart manufacturer TCL. Instead of stumbling with multiple remotes to control the volume, picture settings, or navigation on your connected streaming devices, you can simply ask Roku to “watch Netflix” or “play Pandora” and it will immediately perform the command and control any devices needed to do so.

Augmented & Virtual Reality

Rokid’s AR Glasses

Augmented Reality (AR) is taking a huge step forward this year, with new phones and tablet devices making the most out of the technologies being built by Google and Apple. At CES, this is reflected in some new gadgets, including a pair of glasses from Rokid that will combine voice control, artificial intelligence, physical gestures, and facial recognition to create an immersive Heads-Up Display (HUD) to push forward the wearable AR world forward.

Not to be forgotten, Virtual Reality is still a major influence this year, with one of the most enticing additions also being one of the most obvious – wireless VR headsets. HTC, with their VIVE line of devices arguably the current leader in the dedicated headset space, announced the availability of a wireless adaptor that will allow full, untethered motion. Given the VIVE’s truly impressive picture fidelity, adding this freedom of movement will contribute tremendously to a fully immersive VR experience.

Smart Lighting

Vivid and Customizable Wall Panels by Nanoleaf

While the aforementioned Echo and Home devices have brought the ability to control your lights with a simple phrase to the masses, the application of smart lighting is still fairly simplistic. While Philips was one of the first manufactures to bring color control to the masses with their Hue kit, at CES a company called Nanoleaf is looking to transform not just your lightbulbs, but your walls into an infinite palate. An update to their existing Nanoleaf Light Panels (formerly Aurora), their new offering is a square LED panel that can be arranged across a wall to offer full visual and color control. The most obvious initial application would be storefronts and nightclubs, where you can imagine a color visualization synced to pulse-pounding music. However, the end goal is to apply to the home, where the application could have a dramatic effect on the mood of the user and the style of the living space.

Ultra High Definition TVs with High Dynamic Range

HDR Enhances the Home Viewing Experience

With Apple coming into the 4K fray late last year, 4K content, displays, and devices continue to be the big thing in home entertainment. While resolution tends to be the preferred talk track of manufactures (and CES had its share of niche 8K displays as proof-of-concepts), there’s also been a shift towards content and displays that take advantage of High Dynamic Range (HDR). HDR essentially allows for an incredibly large color palate when compared to previous video formats, showing more realistic colors from the darkest blacks to the brightest whites. As Consumer Reports describes it, while traditional non-HDR displays can show up to 17 million unique colors, displays utilizing HDR can reveal up to 1 billion colors (that’s billion, with a ‘B’).

Sony’s New AF8 Bravia OLED UHDTV

Sony was one of many TV display manufactures to showcase their new 4K HDR TVs, which now include support for the recently announced HDR 10 standard, which will bring an even larger range of colors to content moving forward. Their AF8 Bravia OLED UHDTV is one such example, and even has a unique approach to sound – instead of having a dedicated speaker system, the TV uses the display itself to project the sound outward.

“Out-of-the-Box” Gadgets

The wildcard technologies are often the most fun at CES. Some interesting ones this year included:

Folding clothes will never be the same…

Not all of these are fully practical, but there is one that every home in the world will want – FoldiMate, a machine that will fold your clothes for you. It supports shirts and pants in children’s sizes up through XXL, as well as sheets and pillowcases, and provides them to you in a neat, single pile that you can place directly into your closet or drawer.

Never has the future felt so useful.

Designing the Perfect Minimalist Home

Silence is golden. So is subtlety. There is a fantastic mystery attached to minimalism. In real estate, this applies not only to a property, but to its owner as well. It could be that these contemporary home designs feel as though they are devoid of clues. Perhaps there are fewer pieces of statement-making art, or the sentimental treasures we collect over the years are hidden in shelving that requires a knowing push or pull where a knob might otherwise expose the secrets within.

Minimalism encourages reflection, thought, restraint, and smart conversation. This is especially true when it comes to designing an impressive minimalist home. Where so often there is a tendency to fill a space, clean, contemporary residences rely on the consideration of light patterns, conservation, and intuition, among other details.

Spacial Philosophy

$4,650,00 USD | Amagansett, New York | Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage

Finding an identity or philosophy for a new space can come about a few ways. It may be rooted in a historical or local context, maybe it stems from an entire culture—like Elysium, a “place of happiness”—or perhaps it comes from a design principle such as wabi-sabi, which encourages its subjects to embrace the beauty in imperfection (cracks, scratches, and a warm, visible wearing-out process are encouraged).

Deliberate Materials

Price Upon Request | Mykonos, Greece | Greece Sotheby’s International Realty

Time and again we hear of fine materials being sourced from all over the globe. While craftspeople and artisans are not easily centralized for our convenience, there is something to be said for going on a hunt for local, raw materials. It is an investment in time, which can be more rewarding than originally thought. If you do outsource, do your research and look for texture—this will add a richness to your space.

Natural Elements

8.800.000 € | Costa Den Blanes, Mallorca | Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty

Pay attention to when the light lands in your space and where. Take care not to uproot foliage unless absolutely necessary. Minimalism doesn’t necessarily speak to a starkness, but an interest in working with what is simplest. When it comes to landscape architecture, or even window treatments, that may mean leaving a towering oak exactly where it is. Working greenery into a recessed wall facade or interior courtyard is also welcome.

Spatial Focus

8.800.000 € | Costa Den Blanes, Mallorca | Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty

Eliminating distraction is paramount to clean spaces, and paring down display items allows time for eyes to rest, shoulders to drop, and guests to take in what is there. Not to say that one feature piece should steal the room, but rather that the items of visual interest displayed allow for pause.

Scale and Form

$10,000,000 USD | Jaffa, Israel | Israel Sotheby’s International Realty

Layout is a chief element in minimalist homes, even in small spaces (an apartment may be tall instead of wide or feature a loft bedroom). In larger spaces, flow is secondary to purpose-led rooms and circles back to philosophy. How are we living in our spaces? How much time do we spend there? What elevates these rooms, hallways, or yards? Light, sound, openness? Long hallways allow for more movement; the soft curve of a staircase brings in organic form; scattered floating shelves nod to a love of linear art.

Additional design direction may seem more obvious: with pared-back color and a love of neutrals, natural materials will shine. Carry this style throughout your space (metal accents, lighting design, fabric choices). In these simple spaces, distraction is gone; we tap back into ourselves.
