What do we have in common with Jonathan Adler, Horst Schulze and David McLay Kidd? We're proud to have been prominently featured in the Fall, 2006 issue of Estates West Magazine. The Scottsdale-based publication is the foremost luxury lifestyle and real estate authority in the West, reaching West Coast elite via subscription, newsstand sales and strategic circulation to luxury resorts, private jets, high-end real estate agents and high-income earners.
In "Tall Order", writer Jenny Stanley and John collaborated on the unique needs of downsizing large estates into the smaller space of a high-rise locale, creating a distinction between cozy and crowded:
"In a small space, everything kept should serve an important capacity,” Trosko says. Reconsider hobbies that are only occasionally enjoyed; utilize climate controlled outside storage facilities for seasonal items, décor and luggage; and donate unwanted items to local charities. “After you’ve pruned your possessions, your storage should be organized into four categories: everyday accessible, exhibit, conceal and long-term,” he says."
In the next few weeks, while John is away in Italy, we'll be featuring exclusive tips, notes and additional highlights from our interview (or should we say "intervista?")
