It all started with a chandelier. Not any chandelier, but a playful carved wooden one reminiscent of an 18th-century theater prop, created by the eminent French interior designers Michelle and Yves Halard. Dee Salomon happened to be in Paris in 1999 on the last day that the Halards’ shop, Maison Yves Halard, was open, and she ordered this irreverent light fixture to be made and shipped to her home in Brooklyn.

It was a long weekend in New York last week, where the schools closed for the Jewish New Year and New Yorkers reckoned with an annual tradition. “Let’s go apple-picking,” someone says, and every year you insist you’ll resist. The 80F (27C) heat; the dust; the bumper to bumper New York plates; and the task itself – picking sodding apples you will never, ever make into a pie (when, in your entire life, have you ever made a pie?) – none of that matters. Like a trigger from a hypnotist, hear those words and you, a city person, are compelled by some law of physics to rent a car, identify a farm and drive out to fulfil your autumn quest in a jacket too warm for the day.
Movement-focused film in art galleries doesn’t usually mean cool fight scene choreography or toe-tapping beats. Historical benchmarks – for example 1960s and 70s mavericks such as Bruce Nauman pacing his studio on camera, or the Judson Dance Theater’s studies of dance in daily life – typically have stark aesthetics and cerebral appeal.

AD100 interior designer Michelle Nussbaumer’s more-is-more approach to decoration feels either inspired by the Pacific Ocean’s magnitude or like a brazen attempt to be the equal of the irrepressible view at this cliff-hugging vacation home in Laguna Beach. “This house is really something very different for the family,” says Nussbaumer, who has worked on the multigenerational family’s other properties for almost two decades. “[They] raised [their] kids in more traditional homes, and now that there are grandchildren around, it’s the era of the luxury fun house.”
