Cover Story

Spring Interiors: The Design Gene

Is aesthetic sensibility as heritable a trait as eye color? Do our homes either adhere to our parents’ style or rebel against it? Six case studies in the transmission of taste: from Santiago Calatrava’s son Gabriel, whose architectural engineering is very much the family business, to the artistic folie à deux of a mother-daughter combo, to Cornelia Guest’s relationship with Templeton, her parents’ famous estate, to Maira Kalman and her dream room. By Wendy Goodman
