WE L C O M E

s fall closes in and winter months draw near, there is still much uncertainty in the air — more than we were hoping for, at least. But we’ve found sanctuary in our spaces — and each other — and carved out comfort in creative ways. After more than a year spent with screens and technology ruling over our lives, we’ve all gained a new appreciation for slowing down and being in the moment. The state of flow that clouds over when time and to-dos feel a little farther from your mind. We’ve found that the best way to cultivate gratitude and presence is by leaning into simpler times: the good old-fashioned nostalgia of a simpler way of being.

P. 2 6

With each story between these covers, we hope to help you soak up every morsel of inspiration. From the quintessential cowboy lifestyle of the wild west (PG. 26) to the restorative powers of nature (we present an excellent case for making Yellowstone National Park your next destination on PG. 74), we’ve found joy in returning to the classic, tried-and-true practices of days gone by. We hope to empower you to take your comfort into your own hands with a DIY outdoor cushion hack that doubles as an opportunity for self-expression (PG. 22) or put your garden harvest to good use with hearty preservation recipes (PG. 70). The beautiful homes profiled in this issue are rooted in traditional materials and aesthetics, seeking out timelessness rather than trends. Enduring style just feels right these days, and serves as a testament to the stamina we’ve all had to muster over these challenging times — looking back to find our way forward. However you choose to rebuild your new normal, we hope you find new ways to make home your own, and new opportunities for finding joy in the unexpected. Stay safe and stay inspired.

DISTRESSED DIY If you’ve ever repeated the phrase “nothing ain’t cool until the new wears off” then you’re right on track for understanding the ethos behind shabby chic furniture. Think distressed denim jeans in furniture form. It has a well-worn look and an antique appeal. It produces a sense of a storied past and a sturdy frame.

This particular aesthetic is one of the reasons Storage Wars is still on TV, but you don’t necessarily have to go mining your grandmother’s attic to achieve it. In fact, there are three distinct DIY approaches that can help you transform anything from a dining chair to a dresser into a rustic work of art.

DRY DISTRESSING

WET DISTRESSING

RESIST DISTRESSING

Use sandpaper (we recommend starting with a coarse grit and moving to a finer one to ensure a smooth finish) to wear down corners, edges, and any raised details. This technique is best saved for pieces of solid wood construction this way you’ll be revealing the beauty of natural grain rather than something otherwise unappealing.

This technique must be deployed before a paint color has been fully dried and is best used for multi-color layering. Use a damp cloth to wipe away the edges and corners of the top layer of paint.

This approach must be considered prior to painting, as it requires you to apply a solution like beeswax on areas of the piece you’d like to keep raw. It works to prevent the paint from adhering to the surface where applied.

ENLIGHTENED A Study on Light and Paint Color It’s no secret that lighting plays an essential role in how we perceive color. It’s how navy blues can appear nearly-black at dusk and more brilliant at dawn, or how a white wall can suddenly pick up a yellow undertone as the sun is setting. But as ubiquitous as this knowledge

is, the rules behind its effect largely remain a mystery for the average home owner. We’re unpacking the secret ministry of lighting so you can be better equipped to select colors that work in harmony with your home’s natural and artificial lighting.

NATURAL LIGHT

ARTIFICIAL LIGHT

NORTH FACING WINDOWS This will translate into a soft, warming effect. Dark paints will appear darker and lighter shades will be slightly dimmed.

FLUORESCENTS This word might call to mind images of a sterile hospital or an office setting, but there’s a time and a place for them in the home, too. This type of bulb will help intensify warmer hues like reds, yellows, and oranges. On the other side of the spectrum, it will dull down greys and blues with cooler properties.

SOUTH FACING WINDOWS This exposure will intensify colors. White or super light neutrals might be washed out in this setting, but darker colors will be brighter and more brilliant. WEST FACING WINDOWS The lighting in this room will shift throughout the day, with shadows in the mornings and a warm glow in the evenings. EAST FACING WINDOWS Similarly to west facing windows, light will change from morning to night, with shadows in the evenings and a warm ambiance before noon. Of course, any of the impacts of natural light can be mitigated or complemented with the help of artificial lighting.

VINTAGE Think of Edison lights, which have risen in popularity in recent years. These exposed bulbs emit an utilitarian or industrial glow, and will compliment warmer hues quite nicely. LED OR INCANDESCENT This is the most popular type of lighting in the modern home. It will put cooler tones in their best light and have little to no effect on warmer shades.

PRO TIPS Always test your paint colors to see them in action before you commit. Wait at least 24 hours and observe the paint in both morning, afternoon, and evening light to see how it shifts with each iteration of natural light it will expect to encounter. If one wall received more natural light than others, you can strategically place a standing lamp, or even go a shade or two lighter/darker to give the room a cohesive color.

Fa Firepit

B U I LDI N G YO UR BACKYARD BLISS

Crackling flames, good conversation, and toasty s’mores comprise the recipe for a perfect fall evening. There are few things more soothing than an open firepit in the crisp autumn air. It’s the

perfect setting for a good story, a good drink, and good company. Make your backyard the place to be this season by updating fireside chairs with fresh paint and a new color!

S E ATING SPRU CE U P BASE –– Pick up some unfinished Adirondack chairs or prepare your existing furniture to accept a new coat of paint. Lay them out on a drop cloth on a flat surface and in a well-ventilated area. Ensure each is free of splinters, clean, and free of any chipping or peeling previous coatings. Sand all over to make for a good tooth for the new coating to adhere to. COAT –– Using one coat of exterior oil-based wood primer, apply your first coat to the chairs and wait for it to dry.

PAINT –– Apply two coats of your finish coat, letting paint dry in between each coat. Leave to dry for at least 72 hours before returning to service. ALL SET –– Arrange each chair a safe distance from the fire pit and you’ve got yourself the perfect new perches for friends and family to gather over the flames.

New Place? No Problem!

The Best Paint Colors For a New Home o you’ve purchased a new home and you’re ready to make your mark on it. Congratulations! Before you start busying yourself with renovation plans that seem to shoot off into every direction, the first step is taking a moment to appreciate the milestone. The next thing that should be done (provided the house isn’t in need of any major structural changes) is determine your color palette. Whether you’re working with colors that shift like a kaleidoscope from

room to room or a bleak foray of solid grey throughout, taking some time to choose your wall colors with intention can save you a lot of time in the long run. You want to create a balance between the necessity of imbuing your home with your own unique personality and maintaining enough versatility that will allow your home to grow alongside you. We’re sharing the timeless shades you should be considering.

No matter what the layout of your home looks like and whether you want to keep things neutral or go completely bold, there will come a time when you need a trusted white.

Here is where you’ll want to start bringing in a little personality. Opt for a shade inspired by nature to ensure it will play well with others.

Mixing in darker shades isn’t a requirement for a well-rounded space, but it does help to create depth. Invite a robust shade with dark undertones to help your space feel grounded.

Chantilly Lace OC-65 This tried-and-true white is easily one of the most popular wall colors—and for good reason. With a cool undertone, it won’t read as yellow against warmer hardwoods or morning light. A safe bet for a powder room, a floor-to-ceiling wall color for an open concept space, transitional areas like hallways, or wall units.

Saybrook Sage HC-114 Muted enough to pair with just about anything but still rich and refined enough to create visual interest, this shade feels equal parts timeless and trendy. A great option in either smaller doses or large: great for kitchen cabinets, an accent wall, or a calming bedroom retreat.

Hale Navy HC-154 Classic and traditional, this deep blue has been a well-loved navy for years in the trade community. Known for its easy-going and good-natured qualities, it’s the shade you want gracing the walls of an office space, exterior, or even a moody bedroom.

STUNNING 826 This shade is versatile and appears crisp and professional on camera (and off!). It also increases productivity and focus so you can stay aligned with your to-do list. DOLPHIN’S COVE 722 This hue is perfect as a background color because it goes well with nearly all hair colors and skin tones, but it also has a calming and centering effect, keeping you on task and zen at the same time.

FAIRMONT GREEN HC-127 Green is energizing, relaxing, and sophisticated. It also presents a polished and sophisticated aesthetic to any onlookers. MUSKOKA TRAIL 974 A warm white is a sophisticated chioce, and it’s a better option to a stark white which lacks personality. It’s no nonsense, which makes for less distraction when you are speaking, but it still offers character.

Outdoor Cushions BUILT TO LAST Outdoor cushions have advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years. From reticulated foam to the expanding variety of waterproof fabrics, there is an enormous selection in various price points to help add comfort to your backyard patio or deck.

FABRIC There are two main variations in outdoor fabric: solution dyed versus printed. Solution dyed is just as it sounds; the acrylic is dyed and then woven into various patterns and designs. Printed fabric has the pattern or design imprinted on top of a neutral base fabric. The biggest differences the consumer sees in these two options are found in price and durability. Solution dyed fabric has the higher cost, but it is more durable. Outdoor fabric comes in thousands of prints and patterns. Having your patio cushions recovered or rebuilt is a great way to bring new life to your outdoor decor.

CONSTRUCTION Foam cushions come in varied thicknesses. A typical depth is six inches, which offers plenty of lounging comfort. Reticulated foam is most commonly used in quality cushion construction. It is perforated, which will speed up the drying process—in the event the interior part of your cushions does indeed get soaked. Foam is often covered in a waterproof ticking, which further prevents moisture from getting inside. A six-inch cushion that does get wet should dry in two hours sitting flat. To speed up this process, sit the cushion on end!

STORAGE What do you do with all this stuff in the winter?! Cushions and outdoor furniture don't need to be put inside during our winter months. However, it is a good idea to protect them from furry friends who might make a cozy home in your lovely cushions!

Journey to the oldest dude ranch in America and immerse yourself in the cowboy culture of the west in Wolf, Wyoming. From exploring the breathtaking countryside on horseback, to fly fishing, mountain hikes, and waking up early to watch the wranglers round up the horses, a stay at Eatons’ Ranch will take you back in time for an authentic western experience.

FA L L 2 0 21

If binge-watching Yellowstone with Kevin Costner has you itching for the ultimate cowboy experience, look no further than Eatons’ Ranch. The oldest dude ranch in America is located in Wolf, Wyoming, and will fulfill all of your Wild West fantasies. Stretching across 7,000 acres of picturesque countryside and tucked in the pine-covered slopes of the Bighorn Mountains in northeastern Wyoming is a place that will take you back to a simpler time. Everything from quintessential cowboy activities like waking early to watch the wranglers bring the horses in and fly fishing on Wolf Creek, to the genuine cabin lodging, barbecue cookouts and a Friday night dance at Howard Hall, Eatons’ Ranch provides an ultimate outdoor adventure vacation for anyone looking to trade in their shorts and sneakers for boots and a buckle. Brothers Howard, Willis, and Alden Eaton first established their horse and cattle ranch in North Dakota in 1879. The popularity and number of people interested in an authentic western adventure propelled the trio to find a more suitable and varied riding terrain for their growing guestlist, so the family uprooted, moving to the current ranch location 30 minutes from Sheridan, Wyoming. More than 140 years later, Eatons’ Ranch is now in its fifth generation of ownership. Back in 2017, before the current cowboy craze and rise in popularity of shows like Yellowstone, Walker and Wynonna Earp, At Home editorin-chief and cowgirl-at-heart Bahia Taylor packed her prairie dresses for a family road trip from her home in St. Adolphe, Manitoba through North

and South Dakota, Montana, to the undisputed highlight - a vacation at Eatons’ all-inclusive ranch in Wyoming. “I have always loved horses and western riding and Eatons’ offers experiences that allow guests to go out on horseback unaccompanied by a trail guide if they chose, which especially appealed to me,” Taylor says, adding that she saddled up her horse as much as possible while on the range. “I rode out at every opportunity and explored the beautiful landscape on horseback over sprawling fields, into the rocky hillsides, and through forests and across streams.” While Taylor was galloping and grazing, her family was immersing themselves in their own interests and making memories - and history back at the ranch. “The fisherfolk in our family had great fun in the stocked pond and my son combined trap shooting with archery and shot a clay pigeon out of the air with an arrow - a first at the ranch!” Taylor says. “We were there during the total solar eclipse and 165 miles off the path of totality - so that was pretty incredible!” For guests looking for an authentic dude ranch experience, Taylor says to try it all. “Do everything!” she encourages. “Enjoy the things you love and learn about things you’ve never done and try activities out of your comfort zone - you might just surprise yourself. I’d absolutely love to go back and do an overnight pack trip on horseback in the Bighorn National Forest!”

A DAY IN THE WESTERN WAY OF LIFE 5:00 A.M. Arise and shine in one of Eatons’ Gold Coast Cabins. Sip your morning coffee on the porch while listening to the soothing sounds of Wolf Creek. Bringing the entire brood? Four different cabin lodging categories are suited for guests and families. 6:00 A.M. Get your cowboy hat and head down to the corrals. The early wakeup is well worth it when the wranglers round up the horses and you watch all 220 thunder over the rolling hills and back to camp. 7:30 A.M. Feast on a hearty biscuits and gravy breakfast before saddling up for your own unescorted ride. Worried you’ll get lost? Just let your horse lead you home. 9:00 A.M. Use your freedom to explore the ranch’s trails, rolling hills, and majestic pastures. Ride alongside the wondrous wildlife and watch the deer and the antelope play. TO DO LIST: Plan to embark on an all-day ride and an overnight horseback escapade in the Bighorn National Forest. Eatons’ Ranch supplies horses, guides, cookout staples and all the necessary equipment for this exclusive and memorable pack trip.

11:00 A.M. Stop and dip your feet in the calming waters of Wolf Creek or cool off in one of Eatons’ best kept secrets - a secluded swimming hole with small waterfalls less than a mile into the canyon. 12 NOON Lunch at the ranch will bring back your fondest memories of summer camp. Located in the dining room, meals are served buffet-style at tables that seat six to eight of your newfound friends.

1:00 P.M. Grab your tackle box for fishing on the stream or duck pond where rainbows, brookies, browns, and large-mouth bass abound. TO DO LIST: Book a fly-fishing excursion on the property down by Wolf Creek Canyon.

3:00 P.M. With limited cell service, escape from civilization and unwind. Swim or lounge next to the ranch’s spacious pool, leisurely explore the rustic and resplendent ranch grounds, or curl up on a rocking chair with a good book.

5:00 P.M. Meet up with friends at the Main House for happy hour. The Apartment bar offers a complimentary beer and wine hour every night.

7:00 P.M. Enjoy your dinner entree in the dining room or by the creek at Stanley Camp on Saturday. Whether beef and chicken or fish and pasta, Eatons’ Ranch will entice your taste buds with authentic western fare.

8:30 P.M. Take in the grandeur as the sun sets behind the Bighorn Mountains.

9:00 P.M. Kick up your heels at the Friday night dance at Howard Hall. Two-step or line dance to Boot Scootin’ Boogie or enjoy listening to live country bands. Yeehaw!

12 MIDNIGHT You’ll be asleep before your head hits the pillow when you retreat back to your clean and humble creekside abode.

Not adept at riding like a wrangler? Lessons and guide rides are available for even the newest rider, and staff will select a horse based on your size and riding ability.

The only thing better than your classic white subway tile back splash is knowing that you are supporting a company that takes their impact on the environment seriously.

s with many creative endeavors, what started as an inkling quickly became a career for stay-at-home mom Marlaina Teich. “I started thinking I needed another outlet,” she shares, recollecting life before starting her own firm. “All day we’re surrounded by the home, [and] I needed a career where I could make my own schedule… around soccer practices and baseball.” Marlaina was still completing her interior design degree when her phone started ringing: neighborhood friends requesting consultations. “It was a simple start like that. One referral led to another referral, and I started to build my business.” Now, Marlaina is widely considered one of Long Island’s top interior designers, with features from Fox News, NBC, and The CW. The positive press she’s garnered helped land her a role as president of the Designers and Builders Alliance of Long Island, where she built connections with fellow trades people united by their shared goal of giving back to their community. It was through the relationships built within the organization that she landed this particular

project—a referral made by fellow members (an architect and builder) who had already begun construction on the North Shore home. “The client was looking for a down to earth designer but one that could handle a largescale renovation. And they recommended me,” shares Marlaina. The clients were two doctors that lived a busy, fast-paced life and needed help bringing their traditional 1940s build up to date, while maintaining the integrity of the home’s traditional appeal. “They wanted to keep the same feel of the house, they just needed it to work for their family.” With three children of her own, Marlaina knew exactly what that meant. “When you get home, you want to have a calming atmosphere. You want it to be very functional. So we wanted to bring in a soothing color palette so it would encourage everyone to relax while they were at home.” Marlaina looked to the family’s favorite vacation spot in the North Fork for inspiration. “The water on the shoreline, the sand, the reeds in the water,” were all a jumping off point for the soft blues, creams, and greens that pervade the home. Because of these muted characteristics, she turned to other elements to maintain visual interest. This home operates as an ode to textiles: fabrics act as layers of warmth, softening up the cooler color palette and ensuring an inviting environment. This emphasis on material is no accident either. In Marlaina’s past life (prior to having three children), she worked in fashion, instilling in her a deep appreciation for all things texture. “The patterns of the area rugs are more modern, using abstract designs and large-scale geometric pattern. We also brought in some glass and metal for a more modern appeal.” Marlaina has a penchant for glam finishes, an instinct she tempered with this more traditional-leaning client. Instead, it was more about finding those subtle opportunities to play, while still respecting the home’s architecture. The home still had the original staircase intact from 1943, although its dimensions were nowhere near current standards. Marlaina and the team worked to update the structure and restore its former glory, a beautiful nod to the home’s history that sits right at the front entryway. The home’s layout was another challenge: the previous living room was essentially one large rectangle in need of more definition. The architect suggested a two-sided fireplace to separate the space, leaving room

for an entertaining area on one side and a formal living room (complete with a custom sectional) on the other. Marlaina flanked the fixture with French doors on either side, forming two functional spaces perfectly suited for a young family. “It really looks like it belongs there,” comments Marlaina. “They pretty much trusted me right from our first meeting on,” shares Marlaina (describing every designers dream client). “It’s a process right? It’s supposed to be enjoyable.” A sentiment true in theory, but rarely in practice when you’re dealing with the nitty gritty of a remodel. At one point, they had brought in an area rug for the clients to visualize in the space. Aware of the client’s traditional tastes while still understanding the value in pushing a little outside of the comfort zone to achieve the best results, Marlaina wanted to give the family the opportunity to see items they wouldn’t typically gravitate toward in context. “I just wanted to see her reaction. She said she didn’t like it at all. She walked out of the room then came back to me and said ‘you know what, I can’t believe it, but I love it!’” Ultimately, the marriage of trust, traditional appeal, and modern glam thrived in this partnership of designer, home, and client. Every decision was made with care and consideration, leading to a beautiful backdrop where life can unfold and inspiration can bloom. A well-appointed kitchen to function as the heart of the home. The perfect spot to debrief after a long day or enjoy a casual meal.

Balance Design: Sommer Tate, Folkway Design & Wares Text: Carlee Baigrie Photography: Jen Burner

A long-forgotten property and a home gutted to the studs gets new life with a timeless touch.

FA L L 2 0 21

THERE ARE SOME DESIGNERS WHO MANAGE to impart a distinctive mark on the spaces they touch. The faintest signature that runs through their body of work. This is certainly true for self-taught Sommer Tate of Folkway Design & Wares. Hers is a style that feels familiar and fresh all at once, carefully marrying the new with the old. This fine balance is what feels so compelling about her work. With no formal education and only a decade under her belt, it’s clear that Sommer was born with that expert eye—the one that knows just what a space needs. Sommer’s most recent project was in her native Dallas, and involved a long-forgotten home nestled on three acres of land that had been left to grow wild—a rare breed in an otherwise urban area. At the back of the property sat a creek flowing amongst mature trees and overgrown weeds. “Someone had bought it with the intention of fixing it up,” explains Sommer. “But I guess that didn’t happen.” The client happened upon the lot and saw the potential. Already gutted when Sommer had her site visit, it was easy to envision the possibilities. “The architecture was kind of interesting… I would call it a kind of Ranch house. It had multiple sets of French doors opening up to the porch… just an interesting layout.” These were features Sommer wanted to highlight in her design, opting to keep the home’s original floorplan intact. The scope of this project focused on finishes rather than furnishings. For Sommer, that meant “picking materials that, even if they’re fresh, are going to last. They are not going to feel dated.” This reaching for timelessness is distinct and clear throughout the home, with classic materials like brick and wood acting as anchors. The clients also had a penchant for mid-century modern design, a request that led to the home’s unique appeal. “We [brought] in a few funkier things, like the cement tile in the master bathroom,” shares Sommer. “We don’t want to take any kind of fads,” she explains, “but we want to bring in the old and the new. We have the green cabinets and that feels kind of new and fresh, but a brick backsplash feels like it could be there forever.” The kitchen acts as a case study in this balancing act. With the green cabinetry, you have an infusion of boldness that still feels perfectly at peace with the timeless traits of the other features. “I feel like colors can act as neutrals,” explains Sommer. “With paint and stains, we stayed creamy white throughout. I think if you keep consistency throughout a lot of the spaces, you can add these darker moody bold colors and it feels just kind of grounding rather than startling. It gives it some contrast.” With the kitchen, Sommer was also careful

to elevate the space with artwork and other wares. “it’s kind of an open concept house and you can see it from every room, there’s a big porch off of the back, and we wanted to make it feel less like a utility space and more something that flows right into being a living space.” Playing with opposites is an artform, and Sommer makes it all look easy. The aesthetics of a “Texas Ranch House and Mid-Century Modern design aren’t typically seen together, but in this space they are made to make perfect sense. “That’s the most fun part,” says Sommer, with genuine excitement evident in her voice. “Seeing a space—especially a house that’s just been sitting there— and having the creativity…to think, what makes sense in here, what feels right in here.” Once the project was complete, Sommer staged the home using her impressive Sommer's simple approach to styling keeps the home's natural finishes in the spotlight — a move that feels just right in the context of this space.

collection of antiques, items from friends’ homes, and pieces borrowed from local shops. “We’re always collecting! I think that’s why I love doing this job, it’s kind of my hobby at the same time, I’ll go out to an antique store if I’m looking for something fun to do.” Her final touch of old-world charm, delivered through accents and accessories, completes the scene, complementing the character of the home’s now timeless finishes and providing her clients a hint of direction for their own approach to styling. Because the clients were in step with every decision, there was no grand reveal, but we’re betting they’ll be enjoying Sommer’s work for decades to come. Sommer is a big proponent of open shelving in a kitchen, seizing the opportunity to showcase treasures from past lives and infuse personality.

The Mediterranean Marvel Design: Sarah Malek Barney, BANDD Design Text: Carlee Baigrie Photography: Molly Culver.

Classic Mediterranean-style architecture meets the contemporary demands of a client that hails from NYC. Masterful design ensues, with the help of BANDD Design.

FA L L 2 0 21

orn and raised in Austin, Sarah was eager to start her career in the fast-paced world of the entertainment industry after graduating from the University of Texas with her communications degree. She packed her bags and moved to LA, where she worked as an executive for Creative Arts Agency, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and SXSW. There, she met her writer husband and the pair eventually decided to relocate back to Austin. After another seven or so years spent in the industry, she started questioning the creative itch she had always felt but had never quite been able to scratch. “One day I woke up and said, ‘What if it’s design?’ and I went back to school and got my degree.” (If only we could all learn to follow our gut like that!). Sarah’s courageous leap of faith paid off quickly. One month after starting a firm which she anticipated might function as a side hustle, she had enough business to quit her full time job. The following month, she hired her first employee. Now, BANDD Design is an award-winning firm and a team of ten with 120 projects under their belt. This particular project, a Mediterranean marvel with an epic view of Hill Country and downtown Austin, fell into her lap with similar ease. While she was working on a previous project, her team decided to test out a new marketing tactic, putting out a lawn sign on the properties of one of her project. The lawn sign was only up for a mere 24 hours (it was stolen, which is why this advertising technique was abandoned afterword), the client, a young family hailing from NYC in need of some interior direction, spotted Sarah’s sign and decided to get in touch. “That’s the first and only project we’ve gotten like that,” laughs Sarah, recollecting on the twist of fate. At the time, the family was still in a rental home, so BANDD’s early involvement allowed for maximum impact. They set to work trading inspirational images back and forth and getting to know the personal style the clients wanted to achieve. “We typically call this a design discovery,” explains Sarah. “We want to make sure we’re speaking the same…language.” The clients also came with a lot of their own furnishings, and although they weren’t necessarily keen on keeping it all, this helped give Sarah and her team a baseline understanding of what they were typically drawn towards to work with. The assessment helped determine the direction and approach BANDD took with their work, an aesthetic Sarah describes as a mix of “traditional, classic, and contemporary.” While architecture rendered in the Mediterranean style yields plenty of character (hello archways!), Sarah cautions about its tendency to overwhelm with its ostentatious detailing. “We wanted to quiet everything down,” she explains, “softening the edges of some of the curves. It wasn’t necessarily about taking anything away but just pairing it back and refining it a little bit.” The best example of this is the fireplace, which Sarah calls the home’s defining feature. In its original form, it was “super ugly” as Sarah puts it bluntly. “It had lots of arches and weird mantels and niches that just didn’t make sense. We picked out the detail and softened it, brought in some cleaner materials so it felt updated but it still played into the architecture of the home.” The result is a streamlined but still sculptural fixture that stretches up to meet the ceiling, defined further with a subtle color block of a muted green paint. Another challenge in the main living room was the grandiosity of the ceiling height (talk about first world problems!). Although a stunning feature, the formality of it didn’t mesh with the client’s more casual and youthful

sensibilities. “We wanted it to be livable, so we brought in more of that comfort and personality.” With so much open space to fill, Sarah played with color to inject life into the space. “I love color, but not necessarily the bright and bold colors that scream at you. I prefer to do it a little more quietly. The best way I’ve found to do that is by bringing it in through small touches and also through pattern. We play a lot with pattern, and I find that by using small scale pattern, they almost start to look solid and neutral, so it’s a really great way to balance out a muted color palette and marry those two things together without it feeling forced.” The space also incorporates plenty of variety in terms of materials: between matte black faucets in the bathrooms, gold-trimmed mirrors, and geometric tiling, the home achieves many things at once while still maintaining a cohesive feel. Mature and sophisticated, without losing the playful and youthful energy that inspired Sarah. The home has come a long way since it’s beige beginnings (evidently, the previous homeowner’s color of choice!), with Sarah calling it almost “unrecognizable” in comparison with its before images (she even startled herself when her marketing coordinator recently uploaded an image of the side by side fireplace update). The clients agreed, quickly falling for their new cozy abode. Although, there are still a few updates coming in the future, with the budget falling short of being able to incorporate a kitchen reno. Thankfully, the family have already enlisted the help of BANDD to tackle that project as well. “That’s always the biggest compliment — bwhen they want to keep going.” In the meantime, we’ll be looking forward to seeing the results of phase two! BANDD Design isn't afraid of being a little adventurous, as evidenced by the bold selection of patterns, ranging from geometric grids to playful and feminine.

ristin Kostamo McNeil never imagined she’d be designing homes—never mind homes of this caliber. “I knew I wanted to be in a creative field,” she shares, recounting her early college years as an advertising student at Michigan State University. “I was a child of the 90s. I would pull ads out of magazines and plaster them on our walls.” The idea of solving problems through strategic communications appealed to her. But after developing a friendship with an interior design major, she knew she had to step in another direction. “I used to just go in her room and watch what she was creating.” After a year of completing the prerequisites, Kristin applied to the program and joined the small percentage of students accepted to the program. “It was like my Disney moment—the clouds parted and the birds started chirping. I thought ‘this is it!’” The following years were formative ones for Kristin, spent honing her skills and eating up every morsel of wisdom her professors would impart. “Once I figured it out, I just, there was no turning back for me. It was like blinders on running full speed.” Grateful to have found her true calling, Kristin worked in the industry for several years, relocating to San Diego from her native Michigan before ultimately starting her own firm in 2012: Anne Rae Design. Kristin and her design associate, Ivan Segovia Jimenez, were brought onto this particular project by the contractor, a frequent collaborator of Anne Rae Design’s. Immediately, the pair began reviewing architectural plans previously drawn up, paying close attention to layout to quell concerns brought up by the clients, who were particularly keen on achieving symmetry in the kitchen remodel. “They are entertainers, they love to have people over, they love to have parties… and their kitchen before was tucked up toward the garage, it was like a little black hole. It was cramped, it wasn’t functional for a family with two young kids.” Keeping in mind the clients’ love of cooking, Kristin decided to swap the location of the kitchen with the family room, giving way for the view to be seen from the heart of the home. “We did these doors that she could open wide up and it really brought the outside in.” To further facilitate the flow of life her clients imagined in the space, she replaced the originally planned dining table for a second island—a move that allowed for maximum utility (and plenty of drawer space for storage). The clients had also requested an authentic, artisanal styled pizza oven, which sits directly opposite the 60-inch range (the biggest Kristin has installed to date). Thankfully, the way the oven was positioned lined up with an outdoor fireplace, so there was already a cavity to work with. These two key features (the range and the oven) work to balance one another and anchor the space. “Immediately [after completing the renovations] they started having people over and there would be pizza nights on Fridays, people just mingle in and out.” The problem solving aspect of design is what truly feeds Kristin’s passion that she first discovered as a college student. “Coming up with solutions that make a space really functional,” is what drives her. In addition to these technical aspects, the couple also wanted to infuse the design with pieces of their heritage to help it feel uniquely theirs. The wife is from Poland, and had spent decades collecting the white and blue pottery pictured on the FA L L 2 0 21

shelves in her trips back and forth from her homeland. Kristin borrowed influence from the collection, opting for a softer shade of blue for the tiling of the backsplash. Paying tribute to the husband’s Italian roots, Kristin introduced a current of European style into the home’s finishes. Artisanal features and an old-world charm is infused throughout with rough-cut stones surrounding the range alcove and reclaimed beams. Because these features have such a presence in the space, she was careful to execute them using a subdued color palette. When you’re operating within a farmhouse framework, it’s easy to fall into cliches and tropes—a common problem with the aesthetic that results in a design that feels derivative—the opposite of the bespoke vision the clients were hoping for. To combat this tendency, Kristin focused on creating character through subtle touches rather than obvious thematic cues. “We have elements that you see in a lot of current farmhouse spaces,” acknowledges Kristin, “[but it’s about] pulling details that feel authentic rather than massproduced. It keeps it feeling unique and not too contrived. We let the elements—the textures—really sing.” Operating with authenticity at its core, the finished design reflects the personalized approach Kristin took, carefully considering every detail at length (they had several meetings dedicated to drawer organization alone) and incorporating as much of their own personal stories into the fabric of the home. It was finished right before the holidays, giving the homeowners a chance to entertain in their newly minted space. “They opened up those back doors, and she said it was perfection.” And with the attention Kristin paid to longevity, there’s no doubt they’ll be hosting the holidays for many happy years to come. The blue and white pottery featured on the shelving here was a part of the homeowner's personal collection, which was brought back trip by trip from her native Poland. The vessels helped determine the color palette's direction, bringing a touch of her old home into her new one.

Start with a trip to your local business supply centre or craft store and pick up some pre-cut labels or stickers. After that, head on over to www.dafont.com to select a couple of fun custom fonts —they're all free on this site. For these labels we used a little magic to print them - if you're going to try this be wary of the dreaded paper jam. We printed out a test sheet from our layout program, and then adhered our labels with removable tape to the printout so we knew that the area would line up, and ran them through a second time. Voila! Custom, printed labels. We then got creative with raffia, burlap and gift bags to complete the look. Receiving something homemade as a hostess gift is always such a treat! Better yet when it looks like you picked it up at a posh shop.

PRESERVING FOODS There are two basic methods to try: Boiling water baths are best for strong-acid foods such as fruits (including tomatoes), vinegary foods (pickles and relishes) and cooked sweet jams, butters and conserves. Pressure canners are needed for low-acid foods (anything with a pH higher than 4.6) such as vegetables, fish, meat, soups and sauces. It brings foods to a temperature high enough to kill the botulism spores that grow in a low-acid environment. Some helpful canning hints and tips: • Always follow up-to-date recipes and don’t change a recipe. It is important to be exact. • Choose produce at its peak – vegetables that are just mature, fruits that are just ripe. Pectin looses its gelling ability and acid decreases when fruit is overripe. • Use a stainless steel or enamel boiling canner. • Keep everything clean. Wash produce and wash and sterilize jars and lids. • Be sure jars and lids are in good condition and free of chips and scratches. • Work in small batches.

Timeworn mason jars carry an heirloom quality that harkens one back to autumns past.

STEP BY STEP...

1. PREPARE JARS AND LIDS. Wash jars, lids and bands in hot soapy water. Rinse well and drain. Place lids in a small saucepan and cover with water; simmer until ready to use. Do not boil as this may break the seal. Sterilize jars by filling a boiling-water canner about 2/3 full of water. Fill jars with hot water and lower into canner, making sure they are covered by at least one-inch of water. Bring water to boil and boil for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and lift out to dry.

2. FILLING JARS

Use a sterilized wide-mouth metal funnel when filling jars to avoid spilling food on the rim. Always leave room at the top of the jar to allow for heat expansion. Leave ¼ inch headspace for jams, jellies, marmalades and conserves and ½ inch for pickles and relishes. Use tongs to remove lids from simmering water and dry with a clean towel. Top jar with dry lid. Screw band over lid until just secured. FA L L 2 0 21

3. PROCESSING Arrange jars in canner. Do not let the jars cool as they could crack. Make sure cans are covered by at least two inches of water. Cover pot with lid. Bring water to a boil and start timing. Turn off heat and lift out and dry. **Note have a kettle of boiling water handy in case you find you miscalculated the amount of water needed.

4. TESTING SEALS Test seals by pressing on top of each lid. It should be tight to touch and slightly indented. If the lid makes a noise then the seal is not strong enough. You can also unscrew the band and pick up the jar by the edges. If the seal breaks then store jar in the refrigerator.

5. STORING

Keep jars for up to one year in a cool, dry place. When opening jars check to make sure contents are not moldy or foul smelling. When in doubt - discard jars.

Yellowstone National Park preserves the most extraordinary collection of steaming hot springs, gushing geysers, mudpots, and fumaroles (steam vents) on Earth.


ISTOCKPHOTO

traddling the three states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming sits the vast and wild landscape of Yellowstone National Park, the first in the world to be given such a title. Spanning two million acres of mountain wilderness (the largest in existence to date), Yellowstone was signed into federal protections on March 1st of 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Their intent was for the land to act as “a public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit of the enjoyment of the people” a statement that can be found engraved at the highest point of “Roosevelt Arch,” which welcomes guests at the entrance to the park. This legislation spurred a global movement aimed at protecting the world’s most precious areas, distinguished by their rare geological features, abundant wildlife, and natural beauty. The United States of America would go on to designate 58 more sites as national parks—that’s over 84 million acres of public lands upon which Americans and tourists alike can roam free. Yellowstone may be a relatively recent attraction to the modern world, but its history goes back millions of years, beginning with a volcanic explosion 2.1 millions years ago that covered the region in ash— among the largest eruptions known to date. This event shaped the epic landscapes and features of the park: with a giant reserve of magma toiling beneath the surface, hydrothermal marvels like hot springs, geysers, and mud pots are staples of this expansive wilderness. Over 4 million visitors flock to witness the park’s unique hydrothermal wonders and abundant wildlife annually. In fact, the park’s wild roaming bison are the only free-ranging herds remaining of the hundred that once covered the Great Plains. The park is also home to 285 species of birds, several families of grizzly bears, wolves, elk, and over 1000 different kinds of plant life.

Although the rugged landscapes of Yellowstone conjure scenes of cowboys and cattle (perhaps especially so if you’ve seen Paramount Network’s latest family drama of the same name), it’s actually the American Indians who have the deepest connection to the park. According to archeologists, the oldest artifacts date back 11,000 years, and it’s estimated that 26 American Indian Nations and cultures have traditional ties to the region. It’s likely these ancestral tribes hunted, fished, and gathered among the lakes, rivers, ranges, and trees, using its thermal waters as key components of their medicinal and religious ceremonies. There are oral histories in circulation today that situate Salish ancestors in Yellowstone as early as 3000 years ago, but in the 1600s, shortly after many North American tribes began acquiring access to horses and travel became more accessible, more tribes began traversing the landscape, with Lakota Sioux beginning their exploration of the land in the 1700s. By the late 1800s, fur traders and other explorers began noting Yellowstone’s exceptional magnetism and iconic landscapes, sparking interest in the wonders of the west. In 1863, gold was struck, sending a surge of excitement throughout the country and attracting prospectors who hoped there were more riches to be found. The enthusiasm rippled throughout the nation, perking the ears of the Pacific National Railroad, who thought an attraction like Yellowstone might help advance their plans of western expansion. The company sponsored the first formal expedition (the Washburn-Langford-Doane expedition) in August of 1870, bringing along photographer Thomas Moran, who was able to capture the attention and imaginations of the world with his vision of Yellowstone. It was thanks to this expedition (and the photographs taken throughout their travels) that congress was able to understand the true magnificence of the park’s allure.

Now, the park is open for Americans and tourists alike to roam its tremendous valleys and mountains. Creeks running rampant throughout the land, geologic marvels and bewildering beauty that feels so much bigger than dirt and rock. The wonder of the west evokes the image of a way of life that feels foreign in today’s fast-paced world. Its charm reminds us of the privilege we share in enjoying these public lands and the responsibility we have to continue to protect them. If you’re heading to Yellowstone, don’t forget to stay in the moment. The simple pleasure of existing at the same time, in the same place, as something so massive and sublime. Embrace that feeling of insignificance, telling you your problems are just as small. Let yourself feel the wind on your face and the sun on your back, and plant your feet firmly in the ground: the land that thrived thousands of years before you and will continue for a thousand more. Yellowstone is the only place in the United States where bison have lived continuously since prehistoric times. The herds are considered pure descendants of the vast herds that once roamed the grasslands of the United States.

LAMAR VALLEY

A trip to Yellowstone would not be complete without some aimless wondering through Lamar Valley, where all sorts of wildlife can be spotted roaming its vast hills. Although often overlooked by tourists, the sprawling landscape is just the breath of fresh air you need (and it’s relatively scarce in terms of crowding as well).

GRAND PRISMATIC SPRINGS

One of the region’s unique hydrothermal events spurred by previous volcanic activity. Around the edges of the pool sits a multi-colored bacteria (which cannot cluster in the center due to scorching temperatures), producing a rainbow-like effect. Although invisible to the naked eye, at the center of these blistering springs sit billions of organisms called thermophiles.

OLD FAITHFUL GEYSER

Located in the state of Wyoming and named during the iconic expedition of 1870, this geothermal features spews roughly 1000 gallons of scalding water approximately every hour, reaching heights of ninety to one-hundred feet in the air. Because of its predictable nature, the explorers and company gave it the fitting name of “Old Faithful”.

HERITAGE AND RESEARCH CENTER

Located near the north entrance of the park, the Heritage and research center is a great place to visit if you’re keen on learning more about the origins of the park. Here, you’ll find museum collections, archives, a research library, an archeology lab, and a herbarium.

MORNING GLORY POOL

Another geothermal sensation, the Morning Glory Pool is often referred to as the “Fading Glory Pool”, since it’s been losing its vibrancy throughout the years due to guests of the park throwing objects down its seemingly infinite center depth. Despite this, the pool is still a must-see.

THE GRAND CANYON OF YELLOWSTONE

This stunning spot is rated Yellowstone’s number one attraction on Trip Advisor. Over 24 miles long and 1200 feet deep, there are multiple look-out points to see, but one in particular stands out above the rest. Artists Point, aptly named for its ability to move and inspire, is located on the South Rim and provides a breathtaking view of Lower Falls (which often sports a rainbow at its base).

Woven Histories: PendlEton Blankets Around the same time as America was awakening to the beauty of Yellowstone, a young English weaver named Thomas Kay was beginning to bring a long-time dream into existence. In 1863, the young man made the trans-continental trek to begin working in Oregon’s woolen mills. Thomas passed his tradition and talent on to the next generations, and the family re-opened the then-defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills in 1909, resuming production of Jacquard blankets, introducing new colors, designs, and patterns. Coveted for the durable, anti-microbial, and water-resistant properties of wool, the company produced their blankets, robes, and shawls for Indigenous tribes, forming deep connections with the Native North American population, taking special care to learn about the customs, mythologies, and traditions of the people to better provide for their preferences. This knowledge informed the iconic designs that put Pendleton on the map. Today, they stand true to their roots, giving back to Indigenous communities and celebrating their deeply intertwined heritage. Their geometric motifs (hallmarks of Pendleton) capture the spirit of the west in timeless fashion. Bring yours to stretch out over the wild, wild, country of Yellowstone for a picnic or a mid-hike pit-stop and you’ll look as at home in the serene scenes as the ancient treelined ranges themselves.

Inspired by Astrology: Discover the hue handpicked for your Zodiac sign from the experts at Benjamin Moore. Love the color associated with your sign?

Aries (Ram): March 21–April 19

A muted green like Rosemary Sprig 2144-30 echoes the loyal character of Taurus and also represents the Earth sign’s connection to nature. This pleasing hue is a natural fit for kitchens—think of how stylish it would look on cabinets in a glossy finish.

Gemini (Twins): May 21–June 21

Cancer (Crab): June 22–July 22

Leo (Lion): July 23–August 22

Virgo (Virgin): August 23–September 22

This Sun sign naturally brings to mind a cheerful yellow. Like Gemini, Sunburst 2023-40 exudes a sense of fun and optimism. Paint an accent wall in your breakfast nook with this sunny shade or wherever you need a jolt of energy throughout the day. ©2021 Benjamin Moore & Co.

Color representations may differ slightly from actual paint.

Taurus (Bull): April 20–May 20

Aries are known for their boldness and passion. A soft, mellow pink like Pleasant Pink 2094-60 can speak to their emotions but also provide soothing balance. Use this hue for a fun accent wall or to craft a glamorous powder room.

Rich, gilded hues are a perfect match for the majestic Leo. Blair Gold HC-22 is an elegant, burnished honey hue that injects a room with understated luxury. We love this golden hue in a dining room and other formal spaces.

Libra (Balance): September 23–October 23

Libra stands as the ultimate symbol of balance and harmony—qualities epitomized by the color green. Lush AF-465 is an indulgent shade of green that reflects Libra’s love of beautiful things. This is a hue that you can wrap yourself in from floorto-ceiling, especially in an elegant library or office.

Cancers are known for their relaxing presence, and nothing says “cool and collected” better than a watery blue. With its gray undertones, Lakeside Cabin 1658 brings an elegant ease to any space. Use this shaded blue in the bedroom or wherever rest and contemplation are needed.

Virgos are reliable, grounded and focused; but they sometimes need moments of levity, which is where a gentle pastel like Sea Froth 2107-60 comes in. This rosy hue works wonders in a bathroom, creating a space that’s both soothing and flattering.

Scorpius/Scorpio (Scorpion): October 24–November 21

Scorpio is an unpredictable sign full of passion and mystery, and purples are the master of mood. A dusty mauve, Sanctuary AF-620 is a versatile midtone that keeps things from getting too serious. Use it in the place of a neutral for unexpectedly beautiful results.

Sagittarius (Archer): November 22–December 21

Capricornus (Goat): December 22–January 19

Aquarius (Water Bearer): January 20–February 18

Pisces (Fish): February 19–March 20

Sagittarius is a free spirit with a zest for life; and crisp, radiant Morning Light 183 represents this feeling of constant adventure. Use this light yellow to brighten up kitchen walls or to welcome guests in an entryway.

Known as the water bearer, Aquarius finds inspiration in the dazzling hues of the sea. Majestic Blue 2051-40 is a bold turquoise that echoes this sign’s creative streak. Use the color to make a statement on your front door or to enliven an old piece of furniture.

Capricorn is the sign of calm and stability, which calls for a classic, reliable favorite like Hale Navy HC154. A color known for its sensibility as much as style, this dark blue looks good anywhere, but we especially love it for sprucing up cabinets and millwork.

Pisces is a sign that ushers in spring with fresh, energizing hues. Sea Foam 2123-60 is a light, zippy blue-green that provides a cool, clean slate. Create spa vibes in the bathroom with this hue, or brush it onto a ceiling to bring in the feeling of clear blue skies.

or anyone seeking serenity and calm (and these days, aren’t we all?), now is the right time to take a deeper look into the deceptive simplicity of the classic neutral color scheme. Long a favorite of designers and decoristas, neutral palettes are perfect when we’re seeking rejuvenation, restoration and relaxation. They act as a perfect backdrop for beautiful furnishings, dramatic art and curated collections, and allow spaces with excellent architecture to really shine. The foundation of a succesful neutral scheme always begins with a layered composition of muted tones and a mix of shades. Determining the right mix of tones and varying the degree of contrast between them is a delicate dance based on light sources and other hard furnishings in the space; the key is to ensure that the eye can distinguish the various layers. Adding structure with darker elements is an excellent way to help ground the pallette. The real magic comes from adding a variety of textures. Think rough, slubby linens to woven materials, to chunky knit throws, to rough stoneware vases. Add warm wood tones, rich metal finishes, and varying sheens in your paint and surface finishes, and you’ve got everything you need for a timeless and comfortable home that’s perfect as-is, or ready for playful shots of color and of-the-moment accessories.
