REPURPOSE

it's a thing Recycle | Upcycle | Repurpose the thing: an abandoned wood door

Photos courtesy of RSZ Interiors.

Interior designer Rosa Santiago Zimmerman is always on the lookout for furniture to rescue. Case in point: This modern, clean-lined desk started out life as an abandoned door that she found laying on a curb one day. She was in need of a desk that was long and wide enough to serve as a work area when she reviewed architectural plans and drawings. She decided to repurpose the wood and add a playful twist—table legs she purchased from IKEA. Rosa loves her desk and even though, as a designer, she has access to the best of the best, this is one of her favorite pieces.

Rosa Santiago Zimmerman • Owner of RSZ Interiors • Over 17 years of design, décor, renovations, staging and project-management experience. • 100 Rue Charlemagne Dr., Braselton • Bilingual in English/Spanish • RSZInteriors.com

make it happen The abandoned door was made of high-density fiberboard (HDF), composed of compressed wood fibers to make it very dense and strong. The HDF was sanded and a primer was applied to seal and waterproof it. Then came three coats of Behr® Pencil Point paint in a high-gloss finish. During the third coat, a mahogany glaze stain was mixed with the paint to give the illusion of wood grain. Then Rosa added three coats of high-gloss varnish. Once the top was completed, she nailed ¾-inch copper nail heads to the wood’s border to give it an antique look. Last, she attached four Vika Fintorp IKEA metal table legs.

2/20/17 6:08 PM


from barn to modern family home HGTV star Chip Wade was approached by homeowners in Georgia’s Forsyth County with an unusual request. The husband-andwife duo along with their two teenage boys adore their animals. They wanted to remodel the barn that housed their beloved horses in a way that would incorporate the stables into the family’s living space. Instead of building a new house from scratch, Chip and HGTV’s “Elbow Room” crew went to work to make it happen. The result? A barn conversion like no other—what was once only a functional space filled with animals turned into a luxurious living space for the human half of the family.

BEFORE

we love smart solutions! This family wanted a way to feel close to and see their animals all the time. The solution? A picture window looking directly into the stable. The design turned two horse stalls and a storage room into a living room space and opened the ceiling up to the roof. They used clever animal-friendly details, like building a room for dogs under the stairs, a “catwalk” and storage on the second level and windows where horses could check in on the family. Rustic elements from the original barn were repurposed as design features, like the stall’s barn doors that were turned into closet doors. “Sometimes, you have all you need—it’s right under your nose,” Wade says. “When you know how to rework square footage intelligently, it’s amazing what you can create. For this family, finding a way to be as close as possible to their animals (without the smell) was just what they wanted!”

COVER STORY

Home Cooking

Peter Servold of Pete's Paleo dishes up healthy recipes By Laura Janelle Downey Photography by CatMax Photography

P

eter Servold used the art of cooking to woo Sarah Menkes seven years ago. “We did a Paleo challenge together,” he says. “I went to the store and got every vegetable and different proteins.” From there, he’d go to Sarah’s place to prepare the meal. And when he arrived, Sarah would be plugging away on her computer while sipping a glass of wine. “I would be in the kitchen cooking and I thought, ‘This would be a good life, this would be a good thing.'” It ended up being a great thing. The two got married in 2011 and the following year, opened Pete’s Paleo, an online meal delivery service with commercial kitchens in San Diego and Atlanta. “People take everything so literally with the Paleo diet and they say, ‘Paleolithic? Do you cut with a rock and cook over an open fire?'" He sees the diet in a different light. “It's

better described as the ‘Great Grandmother' diet," he says. “If your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize it as food then it is probably not food."

The basic tenets include nonprocessed meats, fruits, fish, vegetables, nuts and seeds. “We eat beef, fish and chicken. It's about variety," he says. “Paleo is just about getting outside of your comfort zone. If you know how to cook a sweet potato, you can cook every root vegetable that exists like rutabaga, beets, turnips, and all kinds of squash," Pete says. “They all kind of cook the same. You just toss them in olive oil and put them in the oven for a little while. It’s about not being intimidated by it." With demanding schedules, Peter and Sarah make time to catch up on their day over dinner.

“We run the company together. We are 50/50 in everything so it’s like having a board meeting right next to the stove where I’m cooking,” he says. “We’ll relax a little and recap what’s going on with the company.”

FIND MORE THAN 100 RECIPES INSIDE PETER'S BOOK, "PALEO BY SEASON: A CHEF'S APPROACH TO PALEO COOKING."

As for whipping up something in the kitchen, Peter says, “Be bold and try new things. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake.” He supports local farmers. “It’s the beginning of spring here in Georgia and I’m buying ramps, asparagus and snap peas. Everything that is green is going to be so fresh, sweet, and beautiful,” he says. At home, Peter continues to prepare Sarah’s favorite meals whenever he gets the chance. “Sarah really loves castiron chicken thighs. Each time, I’ll just use different seasonings like curry or adobo.” He’ll pair the dish with roasted purple sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli. “In 35 minutes, you’ve made an unbelievable nutrient-dense meal."

REPAIR

the right fix If It's Broke, You Can Fix It! …Well, Maybe.

The problem: My son accidentally put a hole in our wall when his weight equipment fell against it. How can we repair it without replacing the whole piece of drywall?

The fix: You’re clearly not the only parent to have to repair a teen’s wall—any home-improvement store will sell patch kits. Lightly sand the hole to remove debris, then apply the self-adhesive mesh patch from the kit. Using a drywall knife, apply lightweight joint compound in a crisscross pattern, blending it with the wall. Put more pressure on the knife when you reach the outer edges of the patch so the compound “melts” into the drywall. Let the compound dry, sand it lightly and paint.

The problem: I’ve removed the “popcorn” ceiling in my bathroom, but how do I apply the new plaster finish so it looks smooth in the corners?

The fix: Everybody and their mother hates those dated popcorn ceilings. When you apply a smooth plaster finish, do yourself a favor and get a corner trowel. This handy $15 gizmo will save you hours of trying to apply plaster in corners without a seam that shows. Just apply dollops of plaster to wall corners and smooth it with one swipe of the corner trowel to create a perfectly seamless finish every time.

I can laugh about it now… One summer I built a king-sized platform bed in my basement. Trouble was, when it came time to move it upstairs, I realized it was WAY too big to fit through the stairway door. I had to saw all that gorgeous woodwork into pieces and reassemble it in the bedroom.

The problem: I want to update the color of my front door— what’s the easiest way to paint it?

The fix: Believe it or not, using spray paint is a great problem-solver. Tape off the trim and walls around the door with painter’s paper and spray paint the door in long, even strokes. This painting method covers the surface more evenly than with a paintbrush, which can leave marks. And it dries extremely quickly, which is a plus in Georgia’s humid climate.

Best Hardscapes

Think Outside the Backyard Box Add interest to your yard with hardscapes

Aside from the occasional ‘snowpocalypse’—or at least the foreboding forecast—we’re lucky to have year-round use of our outdoor living spaces in Atlanta. Whether you want to perk up your front yard or beautify the back patio, a few design changes can transform the look of your outside space. Incorporating hardscapes can be a simple way to refresh and refine your outdoor design to maximize enjoyment throughout the year. Curve Appeal: Hardscape designs that are too linear can cause a space to look unnatural. Use curved lines and shapes so your patio and pathways transition smoothly into the rest of the landscape. Curves can also make retaining walls seem more inviting and less imposing. The Tandem Wall collection from Belgard includes curved walls for an elegant, organic look with the timeless appearance of chiseled stone. Function that Flows: Divide your outdoor space into several living areas segmented by use and function. Nestle a firepit into the corner of your yard,

041-059_BEST OF.indd 42

for example, to create a cozy space. A paver stone path can lead the way, while retaining walls make an attractive privacy “fence.” Mix Things Up (or Down): Get creative while adding lift—walls have the ability to add dimension and drama to lackluster landscapes. Retaining walls can be used to create built-in planters, direct traffic flow or provide extra bench seating. Embrace any elevation grade issues with staggering levels for a sunken seating area, pool or fire pit. Cap It Off: Column kits and cap units are great sources of embellishment. Ask a contractor you trust to build a stone mailbox, spruce up a lamppost or add a column to a freestanding wall. For more design tips, download an Idea Book from Belgard at Belgard.com/AHI.

Bask in the glow of the massive stone fireplace in winter or get some respite from the heat under the shade of the peaked timber roof.

This peaceful retreat was created on a barely used backyard slope. Random flat stones and small boulders were used to mimic a natural streambed with a hidden pump to recycle water from the pond below back to the top of the slope. Spreading, flowering perennials, like Iris and Canna Lily, were planted and allowed to grow into each other and up to the waterfall to soften its look. Add a bright blue Adirondack chair as a destination and you now have a garden “aha!� moment.

Outdoor Living Trends Home is where the hearth is Modern outdoor living combines these two traditions into one with outdoor fireplaces and firepits. This trend will continue to be one of the fastest growing phenomenons in outdoor living for 2017.

Mimicking the indoor environment Outdoor living room designs continue to mimic the look of their indoor counterparts, including furniture design, lighting fixtures, decorative accessories and flooring. Expect to see an increase in the popularity of larger format pavers with natural textures and design elements.

Rise of the outdoor chef Expect to see an increase in brick ovens as more homeowners learn that these attractive fixtures can be used for more than just cooking pizza, but can actually function as a full-use outdoor oven.

Turns out, it is easy being “green” As homeowners learn about the benefits of permeable pavers, the trend is beginning to make its way into the residential arena, particularly for driveways, and is expected to continue to grow. COURTESY OF BELGARD.COM/BLOG

Outdoor Grill Guide Gas • Propane cylinder is cost-effective, but pay attention! It can run out just when you need it the most! • Cost: $140 to $3,000 • Easy to adjust grill temps • Little wait time for grill to be ready

Charcoal • Considered to offer the best flavor for food • Cost: $100 to $400 • Briquettes provide consistent heat • Lighting fluid can be dangerous to use • Longest heat time of any type of grill

Wood Pellet • Pellets are eco-friendly and energy efficient • Smoke from wood infuses food with flavor • Cost: $600 to $2,500 • Even temperature distribution

Electric • Never run out of fuel—heat source is home’s electricity • Cost: $170 to $250 • Safe for use in small spaces or balcony • Not as easy to adjust heat temp quickly

Hybrid • Cook with gas or charcoal—offers more food flavor options • Cost: $300 to $3,000 • Gas option allows fast startup • Doesn’t get as hot as gas grills

Yes No

Firepits/Fireplaces Do you want a:

Firepit

Fireplace

How many people will be seated nearby to enjoy the fire’s warmth or ambiance? _____________________________________________________ Will you use furniture for seating or do you want built-in seating? Furniture

Built-in seating

What fuel source do you prefer for the fire feature? Real wood logs Natural gas Hidden propane tank Do you have kids or pets that need to be protected from the fire element (say, by a hearth)? Yes No Would you like a firepit that is: Flush with the ground

Raised

Portable

Do you want a fire feature that: Connects with the patio or other hardscape? Stands alone and is placed out in the yard? Is covered by a patio cover or pergola?

What’s Hot in Pools and Spas in 2017 “Spools” These water features are much smaller than traditional swimming pools, but are longer than the usual spa. Strong jets of water allow the user to swim “upstream” to get a workout in a relatively small area. The temperature can be kept cooler than a spa so that the swimmer isn’t uncomfortable but, post-workout, you can raise the water temperature and relax those tired muscles.

Beach entry Wade into your pool just like you would walk through the sand to get to the ocean. This type of pool entrance is perfect for families with small children who need a portion of the pool to be shallow or for adults who want the benefit of cooling off in the pool without making such a big splash.

Fire/water feature combo

What optional extras would you consider for your fire feature? Fire/water combination (fire feature with an integrated fountain, for instance) Hearth for seating ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ NOTES: ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________

A fire feature incorporated into a pool design makes perfect sense. What’s better than a nighttime dip lit by the glow of a firepit or fireplace? When the temps plummet, you can still enjoy the water’s edge with a fire feature that has seating for everyone, whether you’re roasting s’mores or warming your feet by the fire.

Top-Quality Turf TifTuf™ Bermudagrass stands the test of time

A

home’s lawn is its first impression, and making a beautiful first impression demands the best-quality sod.

Introducing TifTuf, a revolutionary new standard in turfgrass varieties. The sod can withstand all the extremes Georgia’s unpredictable weather can have on your lawn. TifTuf was developed by Drs. Wayne Hanna and Brian Schwartz from The University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences. After 25 years of testing in Georgia’s own “backyard” of Tifton, Georgia, hence the name, the testing gave way to the creation of a drought tolerant, wear-and-tear tolerant, and partial shade tolerant new sod. TifTuf’s superior drought tolerance means your lawn will need less water to maintain its lush green color. It has been engineered to flourish in

a variety of conditions (sun exposure, humidity, severe temperature changes) while maintaining environmental sustainability. TifTuf allows you to have the verdant lawn of your dreams without subjecting the environment to unnecessary hardship. Part of the pleasure of having a beautiful lawn is actually getting out and playing on it. TifTuf is a warm season lawn that will repair itself during the growing season, meaning it will spread to fill any wear and tear caused by playing and running or from pets. Besides the regrowth ability, it is also proving to simply better withstand damage caused by high foot traffic. If you want to practice a sport wearing cleats on your TifTuf lawn, don’t worry about it and go for it! Another standout feature of TifTuf is its shade tolerance. Dogwood and pine trees are common in

Southern landscapes, but their bountiful shade can hinder the growth of most turf grass. TifTuf has been grown under shade conditions, doing very well under high pine shade (equates to 50 percent shade or “partial” shade) as long as it gets at least five hours of direct sun. Being a Bermudagrass, it will always thrive when exposed to direct sun, all day long. One of the struggles with switching to a new turf is the initial maintenance with getting the sod to take root. TifTuf has been tested in real world installations and during the high heat and drought of late summer-fall 2016, when irrigation systems couldn’t possibly keep up with the environmental challenges, many new TifTuf lawns were laid around Atlanta. In that real-life test, TifTuf shone as a game-changer as a successful, lowwater use lawn. The University of Georgia recommends having your soil tested prior to installation so you can better understand its condition and plan an appropriate fertilizing schedule based on the test.

IT’S ALL IN THE NUMBERS Requires 38 percent less water than common Tifway Bermuda. (Source: Federal Special Crop Research Initiative) Even in 50 percent pine shade, TifTuf maintained vitality. (Source: Dr. Brian Schwartz – UGA) TifTuf’s spring green up rating is 1.1 points higher than other Bermudagrasses typically grown in the Southeast. (Source: Dr. Brian Schwartz – UGA) Switching to TifTuf pays for itself in a median average of 1.7 years under drought conditions. (Source: Dr. Clint Waltz – UGA)

Q

With TifTuf, what seasons can I expect rich, green-colored grass? A: TifTuf is the lawn that stays greener longer. It stays greener during a drought, it stays greener longer into the fall (withstanding some frost), and it greens up earlier in the spring than other warm season lawns, including other types of Bermudagrass. An owner can expect to have well over half a year of green grass; in the Atlanta area, that equates to April through November.

Q

I’ve had problems with unhealthy sod in the past. How can I ensure I am getting the best product? A: Make sure you purchase “Certified Turfgrasses” from a sod grower. Certified Turfgrass types have a documented history and pedigree, they have ensured purity in production and harvesting, and they are grown and inspected under strict rules and guidelines. TifTuf Bermudagrass is grown only under Certified conditions and the sod farm can provide paperwork to prove it. The Georgia Crop Improvement Association (www. certifiedseed.org) monitors all these aspects of Certified Turfgrass.

Q

How can I use my water most efficiently when irrigating my turfgrass? A: Reducing disease is also an important aspect to plan for when setting your irrigation timer. Watering your lawn only in the early morning (before sunrise) facilitates efficient use of water— allowing water to soak into the ground and be absorbed by roots while reducing the risk of water loss due to evaporation in the heat of the day. Plus, morning watering allows the grass leaf blades to air dry during the day, reducing the risk of lawn diseases from moisture remaining on the lawn overnight.
