Geometric Pool with a View in Phoenix

Perched on picturesque Echo Mountain in Phoenix, this Wendell Burnette-designed desert home featured from our Indoor Outdoor issue, comes with a pool that is "half terrace, half cool-water retreat...projected toward the canopy of the desert sky." Enclosed by 13-foot-high white plaster walls, light dramatically filters through the holes that bounce from the water onto the far wall. “One volume gets the city and the valley,” says Burnette, “and the pool frames nothing but sky. There’s a dialogue experientially between these two elemental volumes. They talk to each other.” The pool feels as laterally finite as the house feels spacious—but the view goes up forever.

Modern and Young: A Furniture-Filled Living Room in Los Feliz

“We literally had no furniture so we were starting from scratch,” says actor Adam Campbell of the recently renovated Los Feliz abode he shares with wife and fellow actress Jayma Mays from our Furniture Issue. “We thought: Let’s give it a go ourselves, and if it looks disastrous then we’ll think about using an interior designer.” The young couple's living room is the best reflection of their burgeoning furniture collecting skills—a cool mix of high and low: vintage and contemporary furniture, design-shop purchases, and internet finds fill the space, such as a mid-century Danish sofa, square blocked rug by Scholten & Baijings for Hay, and a long wooden table. To the right, a Plugged Pendant lamp from Muuto hangs above a white legged Pure dining table from CB2, while tubular steel side chairs from Danish Modern L.A. and Verner Panton chairs found on, you guessed it, Craigslist, graciously await a fluttering of guests. As Mays says, “I feel that our furniture reflects the marriage of both old and new and hopefully does so with a bit of levity and color."
