FROM THE EDITOR DESIGN&LIVING

New Year,

New Hues A

s we enter the new year, I love reflecting back on the homes we've featured over the past year. It gives us an opportunity to zoom in and really pay homage to some of the best spaces and most talented designs thus far. To do this, we browsed through thousands of photos from our 2016 issues, and chose just a few of the rooms that we knew deserved a second glance. These are the designs that had us asking for more. We hope this special Design & Living Look Book is just the ticket to take you into the new year reeling with ideas and brimming with inspiration. Getting lost in pictures, I'd almost forgotten what time of year it was. Alas, this is the time that Pantone announces its esteemed color of the year. Last year, we tried really hard to embrace Pantone's 2016 choice–a soft pink named Rose Quartz and a baby blue named Serenity–but personally, it just didn't stick for me. I like to say these are colors that only the wealthy can truly embrace. Because just as fast as they're "in," they tend to fall "out." I don't know about you, but I am not someone who can afford to change out that soft pink arm chair or baby blue settee after merely a year or two. My furniture better

be "in" for the next five to ten years. Period. So, I graciously bid adieu to last year's nursery-like colors and gave a warm welcome to Greenery, Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year. I'm not the only one who loves this year's chosen hue. Architectural Digest referred to it as "a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew." As I sit in the midst of another long North Dakota winter, I have only one thing to say. Green is good. I bet Architectural Digest won't be quoting me anytime soon. All colors aside, I have a feeling this year is going to be incredible. Stop worrying about that baby blue settee you can't take back, mark your calendars and set your sights on these upcoming events.

With so much motivation to improve ourselves at the change of a calendar, it's no surprise that many people have similar New Year's resolutions. From losing weight and eating healthier to spending more time with family and saving money, Fargo Monthly explores some of the more common types of resolutions this month and gives some local suggestions for making them happen in 2017.

We always hear about the endless hours of hard work NDSU student-athletes do in the weight room. But what exactly are they doing? We go inside the Sanford Health Athletic Complex's weight room and the Bison strength coaches show us what the Bison are doing to out-muscle opponents. Some may be useful for that New Year's resolution you're about to start.

When you're in a commodity business like payment processing, how do you set yourself apart from the competition? It turns out the answer is simple: do more for your customers than anyone else. The team from West Fargo-based BNG fills us in on the secrets, challenges and frustrations that come with building a million-dollar business.

DESIGN&LIVING ORGANIZATION

How To Get

ORGANIZED In The New Year

T

here's no need for any more chaos caused from unorganization. Your life, body and mind will feel less stressed when your surroundings are peaceful. Oftentimes, the hardest part about getting organized is decluttering your spaces. Make this your most organized year yet with these helpful tips from Ursula Hegvik of Smart Spaces and Melissa Schmalenberger of MS. Simplicity. BY Devin Joubert PHOTOS BY Paul Flessland

Hegvik's Tips For Getting Started: • When decluttering any space, get everything out in front of you. "Separate things into different piles: keep, throw away and donate," said Hegvik. • When you know what you want to keep, don't put everything away until you've finished going through the whole space. • Categorize your "keep" pile when putting things away. "For example, put dress pants together, but separate them from your jeans," said Hegvik. • "If you have a tough time getting rid of things that might be of sentimental value, get out a fourth pile and put those things in a box. "Put the box out of sight. Put a reminder on your calendar. If you don’t go back to retrieve something after 2-6 months then you might have an easier time getting rid of those things," said Hegvik.

73


DESIGN&LIVING ORGANIZATION

URSULA HEGVIK

Tips For Organizing Your House In 2017 Hegvik had some special tips to make your home extra organized.

CLOSETS • Put lighting in your closet or even in your drawers. Sensor lights are good options, or even the kind you can click on. • Get your shoes off the ground and up in shoe shelves so you can see them.

KID'S CLOSET • Give your child a system for their closet. Give them a specific spot for their laundry. • Think about keeping socks in a drawer at the entry so your kids (and you) don't have to rush back to the room to grab socks in case you're in a rush in the morning. • Set up a garment valet to get your kids in the habit of getting their clothes ready the night before so it cuts back on stress in the morning. This can even be done by hanging a hook on the wall at their height. • Use boxes, baskets or even ziplock bags to categorize things together.

GARAGE • Get things on shelves behind doors in a garage, storage room or bathroom.

75


ORGANIZATION DESIGN&LIVING

PANTRIES • Group similar things together. Put the soups together and the cereal together. • If you have adjustable pantry shelves, categorize the food items by height, weight and size. • Use baskets to dump snacks or categorized food items in. Then you can also get rid of the bigger cardboard boxes that snacks usually come in. It'll clear up space.

KITCHEN • Have a tupperware dump drawer. Scoop drawers work perfectly for this. • Get those containers where they all fit. They are a one-size-fits-all so it helps you cut back on clutter and frustration when trying to find a lid.

MUD ROOM • Fasten hooks to the wall for the jackets. • Use baskets for hats and gloves.

MS. Simplicity's Ways To Simplify Your Life • Set a use-by date. Give yourself a date to use an item by. Place the date on the item and make sure that you use it by the date. Feel free to donate if you have not used the item. This works for books and magazines that need to be read or boxes that need to be unpacked. • Reverse your hangers. In order to determine which clothes you wear, reverse the hangers and as you wear something, return the hanger in the proper position. After a period of time you will see what clothes you actually wear so that you can donate the ones you don’t wear. • Label this & label that. Marking what goes where can help family members remember where things go. Once a habit is created, the label can be removed. • Discard all the duplicates. If you have too many of an item, keep the ones you use and discard the rest. There is no reason to have duplicates if they all have the same purpose. Closets are full of black pants and black shirts that have the same purpose but only a few are ever worn.

76

DESIGN & LIVING | J A N U A R Y 2 017

• Get things up in your garage. Garages are filled with forgotten space. Look up to the ceiling to hang hooks for bikes on the walls. Try to hang systems to store your rakes and shovels. • Invest in quality products. Instead of having to replace items frequently because they become cracked or broken, which creates mismatched sets, invest in one good set and ditch the rest. This works for dishes and many kitchen items. • Avoid mishap in your mudrooms. A mudroom is not a drop zone. It can be decorated with practical items to aid in organization. Use pretty baskets to house your mittens and hats or a beautiful tray to place keys and spare change. This can make the room more welcoming.

ARTFUL BEGINNINGS Inspiration has never been difficult for Berglund. When she was younger, she enjoyed coming up with new ideas such as painting with ink made from flower petals and berries she found in the woods. “I also wood-burned with a magnifying glass and only started a few fires,” she joked.

HER ARTISTIC STYLE Berglund works with mediums from paint and collages to digital photography and art. “My medium changes all the time. Right now, I’m enjoying digital art and playing with new brushes while trying to make it look traditional. I also love landscape photography,” said Berglund.

fell a couple months ago. Maybe there is a lesson behind it. If you see something interesting, take the picture right away or if you want to do something, just go do it, because later you might not be able to. It is a gift, just like life,” Berglund said.

PIECE #2: INTO THE WOOD Berglund took out her sketchbook to show how this piece started on two pages and moved it to Photoshop. “I also made a digital brush from a branch. That’s what makes it look like a forest behind the trees. I wanted to create a light that draws the eye back, making the viewer want to adventure into the woods. This painting was about 20 layers of drawings, paintings and parts of photographs in Photoshop. Some people think digital art is easy, but a lot goes into it, so it can be hard,” Berglund said.

PIECE #1: PERFECT REFLECTIONS This photograph (see opposite page) is Berglund’s favorite print. She took it of the river in the woods behind her house early in the morning. “The mist was rolling off the water. That tree is no longer there since it

PIECE #3: FIRST FROST SERIES “On a foggy morning, after the first frost, the woods were wrapped in spider webs. It looked like you were

stepping into a fantasy land. I’m sure the spider webs are there normally but they stood out with the frost. It added an extra dimension,” said Berglund. These photographs were taken with a macro lens closer to the ground. She loves using the macro lens to shed light on things in the forest that might not be noticed otherwise. 79


ARTIST DESIGN&LIVING

WORKSHOP: creating in the country Berglund believes that inspiration and creativity are missing from our day-to-day lives because we are always rushing from one place to the other. Instead, we should take time to slow down because that’s when we’ll start relaxing and noticing the smaller details in life. “When I was growing up, people didn’t know what the word stress was. I believe creativity helps a person think and become calm. It is a great stress reliever,” said Berglund. With the first “Creating In The Country” workshop, Berglund will lead students through a guided lesson to create a multimedia collage on canvas. It will be $35 and the price covers materials, a lesson and guidance. Appetizers will be served. It will be a safe haven for people wanting to get away from the busyness of life to recharge. You don’t have to be an artist, but make sure to register early, as class size is limited and will fill up fast. 80

When Flessland returned from Norway, he wanted to make his work easily accessible to the public. “The photos from Norway are pretty special to me with my heritage, and also because Minnesota and North Dakota have a lot of Scandinavian roots. It has an emotional connection for me and hopefully also for others,� he said.

THE GALLERY RECEPTION NIGHT In December, Flessland debuted his work at the Spark Gallery in the Smart Spaces showroom. All pieces are currently available for purchase.

WHILE IN NORWAY While in Norway, Flessland kept costs down by volunteering on organic farms through the WWOOF program. "I planned to be at two farms, each for a month. The program was great because I worked 30 hours a week on the farm in exchange for free room and 84

there were a ton of sheep running around. I chased a few and took pictures of them,” said Flessland.

Lofoten 1 Flessland went to Lofoten, an archipelago in northern Norway, with a French man he met on the second farm he worked at. They hitchhiked from Tromsø and rented a car once they arrived. The first night, they drove through the mountains at dusk to find a place to sleep. “It was foggy and light because of the midnight sun. I couldn't pass up on the photo opportunity,” he said.

Lofoten 3 While on the same hike, Felssland came upon a sandy beach that inspired him. He took the picture at four in the morning. It was a four-minute exposure. "It's the longest exposure I've done so far," he said.

Lofoten 2 “We went for a midnight hike in Lofoten. We wanted to see the sunset, but of course, it was foggy at the top. This photo was taken around one in the morning and

Kongshaug On the left side of the image there's a small village, Vik, with a stave church. “It’s a special village, because the stave church in Moorhead is the exact replica of that one,” said Flessland.

Market

he October High Point Market in North Carolina is the largest furniture trade show in the world, drawing more than 75,000 buyers. Each year, a team from McNeal & Friends attends this market to touch and feel furnishings with our clients and storefront in mind.

The energy of the crowd, new trends and timeless dĂŠcor is infectious as soon as you enter the first of over 2,000 showrooms and exhibits. Of course, we have our favorites we make certain to visit, however, the schedule is fluid so that there is always room to discover new finds. This year, we placed orders in textures for all senses: preserved greens, rich neutral antique rug ottomans and poufs, sumptuous velvet and linen custom upholstery furniture and reclaimed pieces that fit in any dĂŠcor, just to name a few.

What do McNeal & Friends designers look for in furniture? Personality and comfort. Lee Industries' custom furniture combines multiple elements with frames, fabrics and techniques. We particularly love this sectional’s choice of a neutral palette, subtle striping on the seat and back, solid arms and base and unexpected bolsters. If you don’t have a grand window feature to highlight your room with color, opt for accessories and artwork.

Four Hands expertly marries modern and industrial styles with traditional paneled walls without sacrificing coziness. Clean lines make the rustic wood and raw iron work well together. The sectional’s cloud-like seating and the Moroccan-inspired wool rug soften the room.

Four Hands' sleek, Italianstyled sofa is a reinvented classic, while the rustic reclaimed wood and soft wool rug keep this modern room casual and inviting.

ith a career in home building spanning more than 30 years, Rick Samson has no plans to retire anytime soon. These days instead of being the boss, he's happily entrusted son Chad Samson to take the lead, while he takes on the role of project manager. This stunning 3,850square-foot Oxbow home is proof that the father-son duo doesn't miss a single, beautiful detail.

With this duo working together to general contract the house, attention to detail was at the forefront. "My favorite part is building relationships with our customers and bringing their visions to life," said Chad Samson. "I enjoy working with customers from the design to completion. We do all of the finish work, make custom millwork and add in the details like the tongue and groove ceiling and beam work."

Main Level This one-story home by Samson Construction features three main-floor bedrooms with a master suite, two full baths, one powder room, a den, dining room, kitchen, laundry room and craft room.


DESIGN&LIVING HOME Entry To frame in a dramatic entrance, Samson Construction chose massive, reclaimed wood timbers in Douglas Fir. To make these heavy timbers work for a modern-day interior, the team had them cored out before bringing them inside and assembling them with exposed iron brackets.

"THE STONEWORK BY NITZ MASONRY ON THE PATIO AND FIREPLACES WERE REALLY KEY IN THE HOME. HE ACTUALLY SET UP SHOP HERE FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS AND DIDN'T MOVE. THE STONEWORK GOES ALL THE WAY AROUND THE HOUSE. ANOTHER KEY PERSON WAS DAVE RANDASH OUT OF MINNESOTA WHO DID ALL OF THE PAINT AND STAIN WORK. HE REALLY BROUGHT THESE WOOD BEAMS TO LIFE." - Chad Samson

Family Room In the family room, the duo used reclaimed wood beams to create ceiling interest. One of Chad Samson's favorite features, these unique, white oak beams came from a barn that was built in the 1800s in the Fergus Falls, Minnesota, area. Just off of the family room, the homeowners created a separate den space for their two daughters to play, watch movies and practice piano.

HOME DESIGN&LIVING The Landscape Located on the Oxbow golf course, this home is centered around gorgeous views of the course and water. The backyard features a maintenance-free deck, hockey rink, stamped concrete patio, paver fire pit and an outdoor kitchen area overlooking hole 16 on the golf course.

Kitchen For the kitchen, the homeowners worked with Wendy Dynes of Wood Specialists to create their classic white design with an oversized granite island and quartz surround. White, painted maple cabinets, stained maple and a unique backsplash with white Chicago-inspired brick tile complete the look. The kitchen includes an apron-front wash sink, prep sink, steam oven, ice maker, wine storage, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Wolf appliances.

Three-Seasons Patio Just off of their 2,200-square-foot garage, the homeowners have created a three-season patio that's perfect for taking in the view during the summer and serves as the warming house for their outdoor hockey rink in the winter. The homeowners play couples golf on Friday nights and also wanted to be able to invite guests on a whim. This informal space became the perfect place for gathering friends, neighbors and kids around the bonfire or inside the enclosed patio.

Lower Level In the lower level, a custom designed bar, granite countertops, maple stained cabinetry and seeded glass create the perfect backdrop for the homeowners' love of UND. As an accent wall behind the TV, the homeowners incorporated a pebble-inspired wall covering with stained maple media storage. Creating another focal point is the stunning mantel with white oak beams, open shelving, custom stonework and limestone seating.

esign & Living took a tour through Legacy Custom Homes' unique two-story model house that's for sale located in a quiet West Fargo neighborhood. The house was completed in May 2016. Brian Tulibaski of Legacy chose the unique features carefully, from a 100-year-old reclaimedwood ceiling to cottage style trim windows and door frames throughout the house. It is a restful and unique house with a country cottage feel. How the home was built dictated how Monica Hart of Monica Hart Interior Design staged the house. LIVING ROOM The living room ceiling is an absolute showpiece. It was built with reclaimed wood from a 100-year-old barn from North Dakota.

FLOATING SHELVES The floating shelves were also built from the same reclaimed wood that the ceiling in the living room was built from.

"I put the sofa at an angle so the room seemed more open and cozy. I chose the white table (in the kitchen) so it felt light and surrounded it with fabricslipcovered chairs for texture," said Hart.

Brian Tulibaski FUN FACT The lower level is incomplete at this moment, but this is the first house in North Dakota to have been built with a Premium Composite Wall, which is a new product that keeps out dampness, mold and more.

HOME DESIGN&LIVING LAUNDRY ROOMS One of the perks that this house offers is two laundry rooms, one on the main floor, and another on the upper level.

OFFICE Double French doors open to a gorgeous office space lit with the perfect amount of natural light from the window. It would make a great office, a cozy study or even a small library.

SECOND FLOOR LIVING SPACE A reclaimed barn-wood door by Finnu opens up to the second floor living space. The natural lighting in this room creates a relaxing atmosphere that's great year-round. Just as with the rest of the house the second floor living space has wide, white poplar-trim baseboards.

POWDER ROOM The white wainscoting and the floating shelf above the toilet bring the cottage styling into the powder room. The mirrors are wrapped in maple and painted with a white trim.

JUNIOR SUITE "When parents have young children, they want to be on the same floor as their kids. But as they age, they don’t want the stairs. Or they’d prefer a main floor master. This offers a little of both. Then they can transition to the lower floor if they'd like without changing homes," Tulibaski said.

JACK & JILL A nice soft light fills the Jack & Jill bathroom, making it great for families with boys and girls.
