reputation for being the season of renewal, but, for me, autumn—with its back-to-school, new-year-new-me energy—has always been the best time for a reset. Fittingly, our October issue embraces the themes of change and reinvention, with close looks at design’s complicated past, dynamic present, and ever-changing future. Our cover this month features a 1960s house in Beverly Hills intelligently reworked by architect Luis Fernandez for himself, his partner, and their son. Legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek once lived in the house, when its decor was more swinging ’70s than haute family crash pad. The changes Fernandez has made pay homage to that history while bringing the interiors into the 21st century. In the pages that follow, you’ll find fresh takes on classic furnishings and accessories for every room, plus ideas for that renovation you’ve been dreaming of embarking on. May we suggest limewashed walls or perhaps a built-in bed? See our Builder section on page 79.
This month’s POV essay (page 53) is a thoughtful piece by design journalist Aileen Kwun that asks us to reconsider chinoiserie; she explains the fraught history of this ubiquitous decorative arts trend and what lies below its pretty surface. Also in this issue, EARTH: a special report on the brands and firms thinking holistically about sustainability in interiors, architecture, and beyond. The letters in EARTH stand for design Excellence, Accountability, Renewal, Transformation, and Humanity—and each of the companies we profile operates by those tenets as it leads boldly in an industry with so much power to effect change.
