The Minimal, Masculine Eagle Rock Hideaway of a Top Creative Director

Since relocating to Los Angeles from New York, former Mast Brothers creative director Nathan Warkentin has devoted time to the gut renovation of the Eagle Rock home he shares with his wife and infant son. It was the first time, he says, that he’s had the chance to translate his interest in interiors fully into his own space, which is a 1,500 square-foot study in agreeable contrast: indoor collides with outdoor, antique combines with contemporary, minimalism mingles with warmth.

This Athens Studio Is an Imaginative Oasis Full of Light

The workspace of Greek designers Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis — founders of the acclaimed architecture firm LOT and its smaller, experiment-driven sibling studio, Objects of Common Interest — is located in a landmark theater building in the center of Athens.

When asked about his relationship to color, furniture and interior designer Fabien Cappello stifles a laugh. “I find this so funny,” he says, “but I am colorblind.” This comes as somewhat of a shock after having seen the inside of Cappello’s Mexico City studio, a 1,075 square-foot space littered with designs in various stages of development: yellow and red fiberglass plant pots; a woven lounge chair with teal legs; lantern-like prototypes made of blue, orange, and pink wire.

Get Ready to Fall for Studio Proba’s New Metallic Rugs, On View at Roll & Hill

Studio Proba is debuting a new four-piece rug concept titled Luster — blending bamboo silk, New Zealand wool, and metallic yarn — at Roll and Hill’s Mercer Street showroom, starting this Thursday. Punctuated by muted tones, the collection represents a break from Proba's usual brights and was created in the spirit of embracing challenge. “It’s rare to find metallic yarn in rugs meant for everyday use,” she says. “It was interesting to introduce it into a medium where it doesn’t belong.”
