FROM THE EDITOR

On

I

Time

like to think that I'm on time for most things, but lately, I've begun to notice a spiralling trend. With every increase in degree, I become less punctual for all things. Late for work, late for photoshoots and meetings and, my least favorite, late picking up the kids. This would also explain why I'm wearing a sweater in my 'Lake Living' editorial photo (it's actually from April). Why do I do this to myself? Not wanting to admit my downfall, I know why I do this. I'm just doing what some call, 'living on lake time.' To be clear, there's nothing wrong with living on lake time. I think it's our mind's way of telling us to slow down and actually enjoy the best season of the year. Even with my brain on auto pilot, I knew I'd better pull it together for the annual, mad search for the area's best lake homes. This equated to a lot of phone calls and a couple of trips to the lakes, praying to the weather gods for calm waters and picture perfect sunsets. Last year, we fought the rain and got soaked in the process. This year, we happily soaked up the sun. We are so happy to share with our readers these beautiful lake area homes. Once again, each home is as distinct as its owners and throws mundane living concepts right out the front door. From the Big Detroit

stunner to Bemidji's rustic remodel, every one is worthy of national recognition for their architecture, design, landscape and all-around creativity. One of my favorite finds of this issue: the architects who start to demo one cabin only to find another hidden within. Maybe not so uncommon around here, but still, how great is that? You know what's even better than the lake? Margaritas at the lake. Like I said, there's nothing wrong with living on lake time.

SHARE SUPPORT of Diversion financial plan with commissioners

ow is not the time to pause on the FM Area Diversion. Without its protection, 20,000 homeowners in Fargo-Moorhead will see incredibly high increases in flood insurance premiums in as little as four years. Currently, flood insurance premiums in certain areas of Fargo range from $2,000 to $5,000. This is as much as $40-$100 million in annual premiums leaving the local FM economy if/when the Federal Emergency Management Agency remaps. Should we invest in insurance or invest in protecting our community? The Financial Plan released by the Diversion Authority in May shows one way to fund and finance the project. The plan calls for an extension of existing sales taxes, but requires no tax increases or use of special assessments. Cass County Commissioners and Fargo Commissioners will now consider specific ballot language and whether this is the best funding method to put on the November ballot. We have new representation on the Fargo Commission. Please share your support of the financial plan with all commissioners and ask them to approve adding sales tax extensions to the November ballot. To learn more about specifics of the plan and to access contact information for commissioners, visit hbafm.com

Reasons to support the FM Metro Flood Protection Financial Plan: 1. The current Metro Flood Protection Financial Plan is affordable. 2. Extension of existing sales taxes represents a multi-generational approach to ensuring the long-term financial health of the project: • Without property owner payment of special assessments • Without increasing taxes, after voterapproved extension of existing sales taxes 1. Cass County half-cent sales tax

2. Fargo half-cent sales tax passed in 2009 3.Fargo half-cent sales tax passed in 2012 4. Fargo one-cent sales tax (onequarter cent dedicated to FM Area Diversion passed in 2006) 3. Financial plan includes multiple delivery models. • Fargo in-town flood mitigation designed to support Diversion, not replace as protection. • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will use traditional design-bid-build for Southern Embankment. • Diversion Authority using innovative public private partnership (P3) delivery model to design, build, finance and maintain the Diversion channel.

The Giveaway of a Lifetime officially kicks off this month as Designer Homes of Fargo-Moorhead prepares to give away a $500,000 house. One lucky person will win this life-altering prize. But what would your life look like if you actually won this home? We caught up with the Gilbertsons, who won a house four years ago in the first Giveaway of a Lifetime. Their tale will show you just how much this giveaway can affect someone’s life.

aturday, June 9, 2012, was exceptionally hot. The temperature easily peaked at 90 degrees. However, the 800 or so people who packed into the Scheels Arena braved the heat in an attempt to get their name called out to come on stage to compete in the Giveaway of a Lifetime. For the last several months, Designer Homes of FargoMoorhead took entries to win a $500,000 home. On this day, one lucky family was in for the surprise of a lifetime. “I was just excited most of all to be part of the 800 because they said there were more than 50,000 entries,” said Michele Gilbertson. Out of the 800 people who were finalists, 25 were chosen to come on stage to unlock a special door. 17 people attempted, but it was key 18 that proved to be

the lucky one. Michele Gilbertson unlocked the door to her dream home and a door to a new future for her family. “I have been doing some research into the number 18,” said Michele Gilbertson. “I guess, in the Jewish tradition, that’s the symbol ‘Chai.’ That’s something that’s associated with prosperity and long life.” As remarkable as it was to be the winner among 50,000 other people, it was what the Gilbertsons did after they won the house that was truly special. A TOUGH DECISION Michele’s sister, Mary, had always been the rock of the family. Valedictorian of her class, Mary had taught fourth grade for almost 40 years and just became a grandmother. On April 18, 2012, though, Mary passed


The first Giveaway of a Lifetime occurred in 2012 when the Gilbertsons won the $500,000 home.

away from pancreatic cancer. The Gilbertsons lived on a farm in Kindred, N.D., and were soon faced with a decision: continue their modest lifestyle or live in their brand new home. “I tell people that I compare it to giving a baby up for adoption,” said Michele Gilbertson. “I felt that house was mine. There were so many things that lined up. The number 18. Mary died on the 18th. It sits on Persimmon place and the Persimmon is orange, her favorite color. When we finally closed the deal, the day the check was written was December 14 and that’s her birthday. There are many more things like that that showed that Mary is still alive on the other side and she’s okay.” Michele and her husband, Art, decided to sell the half-million-dollar home in order to put aside some

money for their children and Mary’s grandkids. The Gilbertsons took some trips that they’d never been able to afford. Nowhere fancy but Michele took her sisters to Washington, D.C., and the Gilbertsons went to see Jay Leno at Dakota Magic Casino in Hankinson, N.D. Really, just a bunch of little trips that allowed their family to become closer. Some of the biggest changes, though, occurred in their day-to-day life. Before they won the Giveaway of a Lifetime, Art drove a ’93 Ford Explorer that had no radio, no air conditioner and a door that didn’t work. He now drives a Suzuki from the early 2000s on his 30-mile commute to work in Fargo. While it was a tough decision, the Gilbertsons stand by their choice to sell the house.


GIVEAWAY DESIGN&LIVING

“I think we made the right decision. It’s not that it was easy. It’s still my dream house because I still dream about it. I dream that I’m sneaking through it,” said Michele, with a laugh. During the brief period of time the Gilbertsons owned the home, one of the first things that Michelle did was put a quote from Proverbs 16:33 on the wall. “We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall.”

Art bought his son, Levi, his dream car: a 1986 Chevy Camaro. "Most people have their dream cars that they’ll probably never drive that are like $10 million," said Levi. "Mine was $1,500. While most people decorate their walls with their dream car, I have it on my lawn.”

THE GILBERTSONS' ADVICE FOR THE NEXT WINNER “The best thing that we did was, after that first weekend, we called a guy we go to church with who’s a financial planner and he put me in touch with a CPA,” said Art. “One conversation saved us a lot of money.” “That would be my biggest piece of advice is to get to a CPA yesterday,” said Michele.

WANT TO VISIT THE HOUSE? Located at 4200 54th Ave. S. in the all-new district at The Pines development in South Fargo, the home will open for tours on July 9. You’ll be able to tour the house Mondays through Thursdays from 3 - 7 p.m. and on the weekends from 1 - 5 p.m. Visit the home and enter to win.

FAMILY ROOM Entering after the homeowners had picked their finishes and lighting, Hill met with the couple to learn more about their desired style, then got started on choosing the accessories and furnishings. "I think they did such a great job," said Hill. "For me, walking into it was pretty easy, they had brought it far and I could easily see the end product."

"I love this rug. It has leather with jute woven through. I thought it would be really nice and durable for at the lake," said Hill. "They wanted something low maintenance where the kids could walk right in and not worry about sandy or dirty feet. They wanted their home to look great, but they also needed it to be very family-friendly. So when picking everything, of course you have to keep that in mind. With the rug, it doesn't matter if sand is going to get in it, all you do is lift it up and sand falls through."

DESIGN DESIGN&LIVING KITCHEN Sharing the role of general contractor, Lute Simley of Paula Rae Homes and the homeowners worked together to complete their coastal retreat. "We were just really looking for something that was different from our house in Fargo," said the homeowner. "So, I really wanted to go with the white cabinetry. When I saw that backsplash, I just thought it looked so lakeish to me. We wanted it light and bright. The cabin's not very big, so I thought if we did lighter and brighter it would open up and brighten the space. I was looking for more of a coastal look rather than rustic." A grey, furniture-style island with bead board accents make subtle plays off of the apron front sink design that inspired it all. "It's what helped me to choose the doors and the grey bead board in the entryway with the hooks," said the homeowner. "The sink was really what kind of started it and helped me to pick all of the other finishes." To maximize seating, Hill chose woven island stools to make the most of the space by tucking four underneath.

"Initially, the loft upstairs was going to be our bedroom, but we just thought, our girls are five and three so we wanted to be close to them," said the homeowner.

With two young kids, the family utilized a Dutch door, as it's commonly referred to. A split door like this provides safety for little ones and allows them to easily check on the girls. "The shadow boxes are like the one Pinterest project that I actually finished," said the homeowner. "Those are the swimsuits that they had when they were little."

LOFT BEDROOM "Since we live mostly on the main level, the girls have kind of turned this room into their upstairs play area. The old cabin that we had to tear down really didn't have great views of the lake. So, that was something that we really wanted, to make sure all of the bedrooms had a view to the lake. Now this space is for guests, but eventually my husband and I will move up here."

COLLABORATING WITH A DESIGNER "It was our first time working with a designer," said the homeowner. "I kind of have an idea of what I like, but pulling it all together, I just feel like I don't have a talent for that. Trever was so easy to talk to and so easy to work with. I told him what I was looking for. I wanted sort of a coastal look and he gave me some ideas for furniture and we talked about what sort of colors and textures I liked. "Every time he'd (Trever Hill) send me something, it was exactly what I was envisioning. He totally nailed it in terms of what little I could give him and what I wanted. He has such a talent for hearing what the vision is and making it happen."

Seeking an escape from their busy lifestyles, the Masseys found their year-round Lake Melissa home in 2002, embracing the daily commute to Fargo and the slower pace of lake living. 44

LAKE LIVING DESIGN&LIVING

Built in 1997 by Frank Hanson Construction, the unique design of the Massey's home happens to look almost identical to another home in San Juan Island, Wash. The previous owners, Mike and Linda Swanston, saw a photo of the San Juan Island home and were so

inspired that they asked a local architect to recreate it, making adjustments to suit their Minnesota lifestyle. Purchasing the home in 2002, the Masseys made some modifications to their cedar shake home, adding on the breezeway and garage that same year.

KITCHEN

Countertop level windows and rustic pine cabinets give this home a unique architectural appeal with a local twist. "The modifications they made were made to accommodate Minnesota," said Lee Massey. "In the original design, they left a lot of the cabinets open, so I'm glad they chose to change it and enclose those in this design."

46

GREAT ROOM

Rustic beams and pine built-ins create matching daybeds, libraries and lofts with ship ladders, framing in a perfect view of the lake. According to the original owners, the timber ceiling beams came from a railroad train trestle that was built in Mandan, N.D. "When we first saw the house, it just intrigued us with the dual lofts," said Lee Massey. "I love the wood, it is so warm and acoustically good for piano. Honestly, the porch is probably one of the biggest things for us though, it's just kind of a cozy, chill room. The sun sets right between those trees."

49


DESIGN&LIVING LAKE LIVING

Built on three acres with plenty of space for their two dogs to roam, the Masseys keep a well-groomed landscape with the original rock hearth from the old farmstead on the property. Even the walkway has its own history. The pavers on the north sidewalk, and also in the circular gardens around the driveway, are the original pavers used on Eighth Street South in Fargo, likely from the late 1800s.

51


LAKE LIVING DESIGN&LIVING

Originally, prairie grasses extended around the home and trees blocked the view to the lake. "We really wanted to improve the view of the lake. So, the first summer we did a bunch of ground clearing ourselves," said Lee Massey. "Over the past 14 summers, we've worked with two tree trimmers who have come out and slowly sculpted the view."

52

DESIGN & LIVING | J U LY 2 016

Linda Massey explained, "When we first came out here, you couldn't see the water or the house from the lake. The trees were very thick. You have to get permits and you have to go through so many hoops to get anything done. So, we didn't do any cutting, but we did a lot of trimming."

"THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WOULD NOT WANT TO BE UP THIS HIGH. THERE ARE DAYS WHERE IT'S HARD TO BE UP HIGH, BUT IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE PRIVATE AND IT'S DEFINITELY AN AMAZING VIEW." Homeowner, Lee Massey

With exactly 95 steps from the top landing to the dock, the Masseys installed an automated chair lift to get them and their 10 grandkids down to the water with ease.

Not to be outdone by the backyard, the Masseys front yard facing the water holds even more beauty. "In the 1930s, there was a ski jump that we believe might have been on this property. Our first summer here, we had heard about the ski jump, so we went to the Becker County Historical Society and they heard of it but didn't have any pictures," said Lee Massey. "Long story short, we ended up going to the barber shop on Washington. The guy that owns it is an amateur historian. We went and

met him and he said, 'Yeah, I think I know something about that.' The next morning at 8 a.m., we got a phone call and he said, 'I've got pictures for you.' The people who own Fair Hills, their grandpa was an olympic caliber ski jumper and they actually had a qualifying jump made. These are the only photos that we could actually find and no one can verify that it was on this spot but we know it was on this beach anyway."

Rustic Redesign

Right around the corner from Ruttger's Birchmont Lodge resort on Lake Bemidji you'll find Susie and Paul Sproule's stunning family retreat. Purchasing the home three years ago, stunning is a word the Sproules would never have used to describe it back then. Having outdated finishes and an inefficient layout, the family longed to breathe new life into their tired lake home. See how Chris Hawley Architects transformed an outdated lakeside property into their rustic dream home.

BEFORE When Susie and Paul Sproule purchased the home from her sister, her sibling was quite sure the outdated design and layout was not worth saving. "The old lake home was tired, outdated and unoriginal with poorly utilized spaces," said Susie Sproule. "The new lake home has an open concept that encompasses its square footage's full potential."

BY Tracy Nicholson | PHOTOS BY K.B. Photography

The Sproules played a pivotal role in this remodel, working with Chris Hawley and Jackson Strom of Chris Hawley Architects in Fargo. Hawley and Strom acted as design leads, helping with interior, exterior and all decision-making while Zetah Construction of Bemidji also helped to complete the project.

DESIGN GOALS

REDESIGNED RUSTIC: KITCHEN

"The end result I had in mind for our lake home’s remodel was a family retreat with a rich Montana feel," said homeowner Susie Sproule. "The most important aspects I wanted were large open gathering spaces, a big fantastic kitchen – we live in our kitchen – and large windows peering out to the lake."

Built in the late '70s or early '80s, there weren't adequate windows looking out to the lake, so Hawley and Strom expanded the kitchen and opened up the space. In the process of remodeling, the architects actually came upon the original '50s cabin when they tore out the kitchen.

Redesigning the kitchen meant maximizing the view and pulling the outside elements in. Natural finishes like the stacked stone, leathered, granite countertop and knotty alder cabinetry create a warm interior connecting to the woodsy exterior. Adding in further design elements, Zetah construction provided the strapping and the custom wood wrapped hood. "Chris Hawley and Jackson Strom were absolutely fantastic to work with," said Susie Sproule. "I gave them a lot of free reign, but they definitely delivered. There was great communication with us throughout the whole process. They truly went above and beyond my expectations, especially with all the product research they did for me."

redesigned the existing footage, taking space from the original two living rooms to create a spacious kitchen. “It's almost like a getaway cabin now," said Hawley. "There’s a spot for her and her girls and a den for her husband. Everything about the project is very natural and kind of elegant. Our strategy with the lakeside is always to use as much glass as you can get."

57

FAMILY ROOM

Seeing true potential in the home's existing wood ceiling, the architects opted to re-stain the ceiling for a more contemporary appeal. Adding in reclaimed wood beams, a dry-stacked stone hearth and custom designed banisters gave the home a rich, mountain lodge feel.

BEFORE

Collaborating on the final design, Hawley, Strom and Susie Sproule worked with Restoration Hardware to give the space a rustic, yet timeless appeal. "I really wanted a home that was inviting and comfortable. The architect did a good job of capturing a rustic lake home feel with rich and modern art accents," said Susie Sproule.

RUSTIC CURB APPEAL

Hawley and Strom took a multidimensional approach to the roadside exterior, recognizing the original elements that had potential and simply redesigning it, adding in natural textures and tones. The architects used earthy elements like reclaimed pine siding and refaced the original brick chimney with dry-stacked Montana rocks. For a contemporary take on the original roof angles, they utilized Corten, which is a

self-healing steel that never deteriorates. Incorporating earthy, natural elements to warm up the sharp angles of the roofs and garages, the architects relied on vertical panels of warm cedar to give the home that mountain house feel. “She liked the front of our old office with its vertical cedar, so we put that on the exterior of her house," said Hawley. "It’s very much like a Montana style of home."

For those who worry about the maintenance of using cedar on an exterior, Hawley said, "For wood, in general, if you want it to be perfect and pristine, it requires maintenance. Some think that the more weathered it gets, the better it looks. I call it the 'blue jean aesthetic.' It’s like an old T-shirt that gets more comfortable with more wear. They might have to re-stain it in five years or so. It could be as much or as little as they want. If you start out with a pristine finish, you may want it like that forever."

"ARCHITECTS CALL IT ‘360 DEGREE ARCHITECTURE,’ SO 360 DEGREES AROUND, IT SHOULD LOOK GOOD. WITH THIS, WE HAD THE MOST OPPORTUNITY ON THE ROADSIDE TO DRESS IT UP, WHICH WAS A PROCESS OF DRASTICALLY REINVENTING THE HOUSE." Chris Hawley, Chris Hawley Architects

Not being able to extend the home any further toward the lake, Hawley and Strom designed the lakefront with the same vertical, cedar siding, adding in stone and pilaster columns for interest and depth. Since they couldn't extend outward, the architects cleverly attached them to the exterior, giving the illusion of a supporting column and adding much needed depth.

“This house looks like we did it from scratch," said Hawley. "I would probably not design a house like this from scratch, but because we had something in front of us, and we had all these constraints, I would argue that we had something better, even though it was a remodel. It’s really about being super creative. It’s inspiring to understand that a remodel doesn’t have to feel like a remodel."

Pond Lake Living on the

For Heidi and Todd Lockaby, the best lake living meant relocating from a nearby lake to a pond. Owning a cabin on West Battle Lake already, the two longed for the serenity of the water, but could do without the boat traffic. With a love of golf, the Lockabys seemed destined to come across the gorgeous pine filled forest of Thumper Pond Golf Course in Ottertail, Minn. Helping to complete their dream home, the couple recruited interior designer Sylvia Lunski of Fargo's Design Direction. "We have a lake home on West Battle Lake and we don't like the lake home feel because you're on top of everybody. So, one day, we walked out and we saw this lot. It had big beautiful trees and had the water feature, plus it has the golf course across the way. So, it really had everything we wanted. I'm originally from Wadena and Todd was from Fergus Falls. So, this is kind of a halfway point for our families," said Heidi Lockaby. 64

FRONT ENTRANCE

Creating a dramatic entrance meant working as a team with architect Chris Doehrmann, contractor Mark Stone, interior designer Sylvia Lunski and landscaper Ben Hovde. Combining visions, gorgeous wood arches were constructed, stained and stamped concrete was used on the steps and driveway with the focus on the home's one-of-a-kind, custom windows and doors.

The three color choices, the metal on top and the California Pine glue lams, we just wanted a lot of interest. We were going for something really different. Every detail in this home, including the border on the driveway, invites you to the home. The door, the windows, the arch, everything had to be custom made."

"We wanted a very open, inviting entrance. That was huge because we feel

the Lockabys obtained a soft, yet contemporary look. "You can custom order the color you want," said Heidi Lockaby. "So, Sylvia helped us pick out the color so it really stood out nicely from the trees. We really liked the terra cotta look. Marvin Windows actually used us in their book because every window was custom. If you notice the way the sides and slats are, all of these windows have never been made before."

EXTERIOR ACCESSORIES

Making a trip to Georgia's market, the Lockabys purchased the large urns

and all of their patio furniture. "I was really passionate about having a little oomph, so I wanted to get it wrapped and have the coloring around it and make the steps look really rich," said Heidi Lockaby. "The topiary pine trees, those were really my husband's passion. He thought it really gave the home that extra, contemporary flair."

DESIGNING WITH DIRECTION

"The house was pretty much drawn when I got involved. We did some tweaking of the plans, but the overall concept was there. My role was working with them on all the finishes, like the ceramic tile," said interior designer, Sylvia Lunski. "We've got two different sizes and we ran it all at a diagonal to get a different dimension. I worked with them on the cabinet selections, finishes and really all the interior finishes like countertops, lighting and paint."

DESIGN & LIVING | J U LY 2 016

Appreciating how Lunski was able to lead and understood the home's architecture, the Lockabys relied on Lunski for her expertise in envisioning the space and tweaking areas like the downstairs which the architect had originally planned as a smaller space. "She's got that education beyond things just looking pretty," said Heidi Lockaby. "I really respected that because I was really nervous that I like a lot of color. She also let me make the choices."

GREAT ROOM

Playing off of the grand ceiling design in maple, Lunski helped the Lockabys choose an equally grand Italian floor tile and granite fireplace surround. "We wanted a lot of movement in the ceilings, so you see a lot of steps in the ceiling, arches, lines, that was all a part of the passion that we wanted, a lot of interest in the architecture itself," said Heidi Lockaby. Heated floors and a smart home system are also features throughout the home.


DESIGN&LIVING LAKE LIVING BARN DOOR ART

Throughout the home, attention to detail is at the forefront. From the custom windows overlooking the pond to the collaborated design of the unique barn doors. With Heidi Lockaby custom designing the doors, Bayer Built is now using the finished product in their brochures and website, showing off the contemporary, metal inlaid and glass features. "You'll see there are a lot of barn doors throughout the home and they really ended up being art on the walls as well," said Lunski.

FOYER

Inside the entrance, the appeal is no less dramatic. The Lockaby's architect created a barrel vault ceiling in maple wood with contemporary wall details and lighting to give the angles interest. "The architect really did a nice job with the open feeling, yet providing a lot of privacy with views to the pond," said Heidi Lockaby.

"The right of the home overlooks the pond, so we positioned it to where it was very inviting and open, but yet very private. You cannot see through those windows even if you put your nose up next to it."

KITCHEN

Doing the dishes has never been prettier. Overlooking the majestic pond, the Lockaby's kitchen was designed with family and friends in mind. Lunski helped them choose the stunning, Brazilian granite island, zebra wood addition, and backsplash with a mix of glass, stone and metal.

"Our cabinets are not matchy matchy. What you see here in the kitchen is different than in the vestibule and different in the powder room and master," said Heidi Lockaby. "We spend so much time entertaining in the kitchen and nobody makes their kitchen big enough. Now, when we entertain, everybody's together, but they're all in the kitchen."

BUTLER'S PANTRY

From the kitchen, custom barn doors in maple and frosted glass lead to a multi-functioning butler's pantry. With an expansive patio just outside the door, the Lockabys needed the butler's pantry to work overtime as a serving area for guests. To make this happen, floating cabinetry was installed with an under-lit pass through and flanked with leather finished granite. This pass through could be accessed from the entrance going to and from the covered terrace.

Lunski beautified the design, adding even more hidden storage with a stainless steel tambour door. "Sylvia came up with the idea to put wine glasses here and add the extra shelf," said Heidi Lockaby. "She also helped me with the backsplash tile. I initially wanted to do silver, but she had said to use something in a warmer tone with more contrast to set it off. She was right."

MASTER BATH

To create a regal master bath, Lockaby and Lunski chose walnut cabinetry and a Quartz surround on the soaking tub with ceramic tile backsplash. A steam shower with ceramic tile and glass doors keep the space open. "My husband insisted we do this vanity area, so I could sit and put my makeup on," said Heidi Lockaby. "I have not sat and put my makeup on there yet," she laughed.

Insisting on finding an accent tile with some bling and shine, Heidi Lockaby looked to Lunski to search out her showpiece tile. As Lunski explained, "I'm so glad she held her guns on that tile, because the tile became the art for the room and just really made a big difference."

MASTER BEDROOM

Longing to create a true master bedroom experience, the two worked to incorporate the custom barn door designed with mirrors on both sides entering the master bathroom. "I think it's spacious and has a nice, clean look," said Heidi Lockaby. "I have to give my husband credit on the furniture, he chose these pieces. The lighting was also a real passion for us." "It's contemporary but totally warm and different than the rest of the house," said Lunski. "In this room, we didn't use any blinds at all, because if the draperies are needed to be shut for privacy or light control, they just pull shut and they have a lot of subtle texture and pattern in them."

73

PATIO

With an almost-four-part patio and three entrances, just outside their master is a lounge area where the Lockabys have their morning coffee. Entering from the great room door, glass overlay tables segmented for easy entertaining lead into a more open lounge area in full sunlight. Just off of the kitchen and pantry, the pass through leads to a bonus area with couches, fire table and outdoor television. "My husband picked out the granite patio flooring," said Heidi Lockaby. "We also wanted the pergola look, so when you're standing down by the pond, it looks like a wrap around type of pergola. Karvonen's has helped me set up the deck area. Most decks have those great big tables and it takes up one spot. Karvonen's had said we should order two and push them together if you need, instead of ordering one big table. I thought that was a great idea."

Bold Design on Big Detroit

BY Tracy Nicholson | DAYTIME PHOTOS BY J. Alan Paul Photography OPENING SPREAD PHOTO BY Helio Studio

An architectural masterpiece, the lake home of Keith and Jo Streyle on Big Detroit is nothing short of spectacular. To complete the Tomlinson & Sons-built home, Dana and Rita Tomlinson chose an all-star design team, including an architect from BHH Partners, a landscape architect from Land Elements and interior designer Lynne Shears. Combining the team's expertise with Jo Streyle's love of design and family, the Streyles created a lake home that makes a bold statement from the road to the lakeside. 77


DESIGN&LIVING LAKE LIVING FRONT YARD VIEW

Entering the Streyle's lake home property, we were struck with the contemporary contrast of the dramatic design. A custom mailbox designed by Straightline Design and an art panel fence with clean lines were just one of many features designed by Land Elements to mimic the clean lines in the home's windows. A paver driveway leads to a modern playground area with an artificial turf putting green and an additional garage leaning towards the same impressive architecture of the home designed by Tony Stoll of BHH Partners. A unique landscape challenge taken on by Bryan Leininger of Land Elements was the large footprint of the home and garage. Because of this, the driveway, front patio and front walk were all constructed completely with permeable pavers. The base for the playhouse is also built from a permeable playground surface.

"There was a very minimal plant palette on this project," said Leininger. "Plants were only used in locations where screening or buffering was necessary. At the driveway entry wall, we used a row of five whitespire birch to contrast both neighbors more natural, mapledominant landscape."

Introducing color to the entry, Land Elements used three large statement planters and a dramatic, Basalt column water feature and front fire pit with seating area.

GREAT ROOM

Spectacular 24-foot cedar ceilings and floor to ceiling windows give this great room an artful view of the lake, patio and pool area. For the interior finishes, Jo Streyle wanted to focus on the unique, grey washed, wide plank wood floor, as she knew it would be a pivotal design element.

FOYER AND STAIRWELL

Entering the Streyle lake home, one would expect something elaborate residing beneath this gorgeous staircase, but for the Streyles, it was all about family with a play area custom made for their 10 grandkids, all under the age of 11. "We knew that the open staircase would need to be a show stopper," said interior designer Lynne Shears. "So, the Streyle's chose steel for the stringers to provide the structure, large wood treads with

integrated lighting and glass railings to allow the staircase to feel like it is floating." "Working with Keith and Jo, I learned their love of modern architecture, materials and finishes," said Shears. "They wanted to create a lake home that their family could retreat to for the summer and holidays. So, a focus on livability was important. The way you feel when you first walk in is almost cinematic as the lake pulls you in and the whole home is built around it.

Abiding by code, the Streyles knew an enclosed pool was a certainty. The original location was off the sunroom, which would have forced their guests to walk through a gated pool for lake access. Instead, the Streyles shifted the pool to the space in front of the master bedroom, then created a spa area just outside of the sunroom. To avoid constricting the view to the lake, glass panels were used around the pool, flanked by stunning torches along the pool deck. 86

The Blue Barn O O SHOPPING AT THE LAKE

ver the lake and through the woods, you might just find a blue barn. Tucked away, just off Highway 78 in Ottertail, Minn., is one of the area's best kept secrets. Open last spring, The Blue Barn has brought Jen Blaskowski's passion for junking to a whole new level. Even if you're not in the market for repurposed finds, it's worth the scenic trip. Every nook and cranny of this barn was handmade and built with love and a creative passion for the past. LIVING THE JUNK LIFE Living just next door to the newly completed The Blue Barn, owner Jen Blaskowski and her mom Jo Strommen are often found cleaning, painting and repurposing their finds. With Strommen and her husband recently relocating from Montana, Blaskowski finally has the full-time help she needs to find her treasures and recreate them into one-ofa-kind pieces for her occasional store.

SHOPPING DESIGN&LIVING

"We all work together on projects and It's just such a great union of all of us junking, building, finding and fixing." Jen Blaskowski, owner The Blue Barn

"My mom and stepdad go junking with us. We usually do one or two farmyards a year in Montana. We camp out and we get dirty and filthy and it's so fun," said Blaskowski. "They've been a part of it from the very beginning, but my mom was driving from Montana for every sale, once a month at 600 miles. So, we're like, it's enough. You just need to come here and be a part of this. So here we are." THE RUSTIER, THE BETTER With the ability to recreate almost anything, Blaskowski lives to find unique items like chicken coops and authentic hardware bins. When most people see tattered and timeworn, she sees her next great project. "It makes me happy to think that something that's probably 70 years old will come into someone's house and then it'll last another 30 years or more. I just love old things and rusty things," said Blaskowski. "I tell people,

94

DESIGN & LIVING | J U LY 2 016

'If you love it, who cares if it belongs outside?' Bring it in, clean it up and put some paint on it. Make it your own and then you can love it all over again." BUILDING A BARN In the midst of remodeling their home, Blaskowski's husband took note of the junk filled garage and decided to take action. Supporting his wife's passion, he decided to build her a barn. Choosing Blaskowski's favorite color, they picked a cheery shade of blue and two years later, it was open for business. "My husband's gone all week, so every weekend, all weekend, this is what we did. We built it, and even poured the concrete foundation. We tried to make it look rustic and old inside. It's perfectly our style," said Blaskowski. "My husband is just amazing, he can make anything happen."


Not missing a single rustic detail, Blaskowski's barn walls are circle sawn pine milled near Pelican Rapids, Minn., at Blueberry Lumber. "He has a huge saw out in the middle of a field and he just sends them through and that's how the circle saw cuts the lines in the wood," said Blaskowski. Embracing the imperfections, she even asked her husband to intentionally leave gaps in the wood to recreate the look of an authentic barn.

At The Blue Barn, Blaskowski doesn't just display her fun finds, she also has a knack for design. Inside the store's small bathroom, she expertly modified a mop bucket into a sink, layered harvesting machine screens behind the mirror and created a unique light fixture from an old gasoline funnel. "I love texturing and layering, so I added the rope because it's something soft," said Blaskowski. "It's also a color, so it's not just all metal and shiny. The little tray for the soap, that's a throwback from Montana, where I grew up."


SHOPPING DESIGN&LIVING

Loving this at first glance at a flea market, Blaskowski was immediately drawn to the now favorite piece, an old chicken coop. Making it her own, she added wood and re-imagined the bottom flap, pulling it down for a cleaner look, making it a place to put notes or words on to give the piece a practical purpose.

"I feel so lucky every day that I can come out here and do what I love. And it's all because of my husband. He just believed in me and we started building, little by little." Jen Blaskowski, owner The Blue Barn

CONSIGNORS "The consignors are huge for us, they really help make the store what it is," said Blaskowski. "A lot of stores that I've worked for in the past don't give any credit to their consignors, so I hung up that big sign just for them so they know what a huge part of my team they are."

"People look at that sawmill table and think that it's so old and someone's going to get hurt, but you can't even cut yourself on it if you tried," said Blaskowski. "It's actually a wine barrel with a four foot saw blade for the table. That's us, just take it and make it. It's a one-of-a-kind piece." OCCASIONAL HOURS Since it's not zoned for commercial property, The Blue Barn can only have occasional sales once a month. For the newest finds, mark your calendar for the last full weekend of each month. Sales start Thursday and run through Sunday. Hours are 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and on Sundays from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. JUNKING BY APPOINTMENT If you're checking out The Blue Barn's Facebook page, Blaskowski welcomes shoppers by appointment for pick-up or purchasing.

40 Years IN THE MAKING Artist Michael Dunn

ith a society leaning more and more toward science and technological progress, high school art classes are at risk of being downsized or cut each year. Many people don’t see the need for these programs when students could be taking more science or math classes. However, for Fargo native and veteran teacher Michael Dunn, art has always been more than just a class, it’s been a refuge.

To local artist Michael Dunn, art has always been more than a hobby or even a career. It has been his outlet and his retreat. "As a kid, I always drew and doodled and I had a place," said Dunn. "We lived in a house, my siblings, stepdad and me, and we had a closet – it was quite large – and what I did was I put a little table in there, and I had a little lamp and that's where I'd go. That was my refuge. And that's where I drew and drew and drew and that's where I went." Football, Art and War Dunn stayed in Fargo until he finished high school — regardless of the fact that the rest of his family moved out to Seattle before he was done. Though he had originally intended on entering the military and fighting in Vietnam after graduation, Dunn attributes being where he is today to a single phone call to his high school football coach. Thanks to that one call, Dunn ended up with a football scholarship to the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, N.D. About not going to Vietnam, Dunn said that, "Had it not been for art, had it not been for sports, I would not be here. So I tell that to people, now this generation doesn't know much about Vietnam, but it's clear where I was going. There was no doubt about it."

His time in Wahpeton was cut short by a career-ending neck injury in his second year. Thinking that was the end of college for him, Dunn dropped out and did what he called “the hippie thing” for a while and hitchhiked around the United States. When Dunn did decide to go back to school, he based his decision off of where his friends were and ended up at Valley City State University. After graduating with a double major in art and physical education, Dunn began his long career as a high school art teacher. He and his wife spent time at a couple of different schools in North Dakota before finally returning to Fargo in 1988 and Dunn began his career at Moorhead High School. Keeping Art in School Coming from a dysfunctional family and struggling academically throughout school, Dunn knows the importance of keeping arts in today's schools. He empathizes with students who struggle in school or have trouble at home, and he knows that having access to art classes is beneficial to them.

"As far as what's important about this, it's their salvation, it's their refuge, it's all those things that you do and all those things you're about when you're inside yourself," said Dunn. "This is just one of many ways to convey your thoughts, feelings, ideas and expressions." After 40 years of teaching, Dunn has finally retired from his career as an art teacher, but the impact he has had on his students will continue for generations to come. “One of the seniors, I gave this little speech to. I said, ‘This is what’s going to happen in your life. You’re going to go out and become doctors and lawyers and rocket scientists, but there will come a time when this will resurface, and when it does, take it. When your children are old enough and all this, it’s here. This is your thing. Everybody’s got their thing in life that they go to and this is yours.’ And they will.” Dunn's art can be found on display at Underbrush Gallery in the 25th Street Market in Fargo.

THE ART OF THE FINISH

& D

o you remember the old Girl Scout song, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold?” That pretty much sums up what we are seeing in a major trend today for finishes in our homes. By Karla Krengel Photos by Zuo, Thompson Traders, Ferguson, Karla Grengel and Laura Cramer

111


DESIGN&LIVING TRENDING

es my friends, gold as a color, from hardware to plumbing fixtures, is resurging in popularity, albeit in the form of brass and rose gold. Yes, you read that correctly. Brass is back on trend. (All I have to say is “Yikes!” and I hope the 1980s keep the shoulder pads and don’t return those to us too.) But, alas, I am in the minority here (at least on the topic of brass) and I think I just might need to expand my thinking to include “champagne and roses.” BRASS IS BACK! Let’s break down exactly what is trending in brass. Brass, as you imagine it, is by some designers, not what is back on trend. They say it is more along the lines of “antiqued brass,” which is roughly a brass with a black/brown glazing, for lack of a better term, or “champagne” brass, which is a brass that has almost a very light peachy, coppery hue. Some designers will disagree with the word “antiqued” in regard to brass. “Champagne bronze” is what plumbing manufacturer Delta calls it. “Brushed bronze” is what Kohler calls their color – and the list goes on. Bottom line is, whatever you call it, brass is back.

Love the trend of rose gold or antiqued brass, but you aren't ready to commit to something you need to have professionally installed? These tables from zuo are your answer.

ROSE GOLD'S WORLDWIDE INFLUENCE And rose gold? Reports from designers who attended the recent EuroCucina in Italy (Europe’s Kitchen and Bath Show for industry professionals) report seeing rose gold on display in almost every manufacturer’s booth. We think of rose gold in jewelry, but why and how did it make its recent transition into our homes? “Historically, rose gold gained mainstream popularity in the 1920s when Cartier released their coveted Trinity Band, which consisted of gold, platinum and rose gold bands intertwined,” noted Knikki Grantham, trend manager for Hickory Hardware. “Then again it peaked during the war period when the government banned the use of platinum for consumer use, many jewelry makers turned to rose gold for their statement jewelry. After a brief stint in the '50s, rose gold faded again and became vintage."

Recently, rose gold was thrust into mainstream, largely due to Apple’s popular rose gold finish on the iPhone. Thus far, Hickory Hardware has used a rose gold finish in an antiqued application, paying true homage to the role it has played historically. Our Williamsburg and Cottage collections both lend themselves to a classic, traditional setting,” Grantham said.

113


INSIGHT FROM LOCAL EXPERTS The trend has the Fargo-Moorhead marketplace clamoring, too. Jenna Greenheck with Waterfront Kitchen & Bath in Fargo didn’t hesitate to say, “Oh yes, we are seeing it locally. It is typically the female homeowner, especially those following the trends, who come in asking for it. They come in knowing what they want. It is a distinctive finish. A lot of times they’ll see it in a print and they bring a picture in of what they want.”

“It is the people with discerning tastes. I have people coming in asking for them (the brass and gold finishes), as I am lucky enough to work on some super high end, eclectic projects," noted Alisha Nermoe, Senior Plumbing Associate at Ferguson’s in Fargo. “When I first started, I could not get that brass out of people’s houses fast enough. I truly think it is a lot of finishes, like all trends, it comes back around. Manufacturers’ say, ‘I’m going to bring it back and add a modern or traditional twist.’ But, what we’re seeing today, it is not what I’d call ‘antiqued brass,’ it could be considered 'satin brass' or more of a matte gold or a champagne bronze. Kind of more like a brushed brass with a brown undertone, which is so on trend. When you put it next to chrome, it has a little bit more pizazz, more depth for color, a show stopping piece – versus that of chrome or brushed nickel.”


DESIGN&LIVING TRENDING

Zephyr Ventilation, which makes vent hoods for kitchens, recently introduced the limited edition “Okeanito” hood, which is available in rose gold and black mirror stainless. “The Limited Edition Okeanito gives consumers the option to get out of their stainless steel comfort zone. Rose gold adds warmth and color to the kitchen and the Black Mirror Stainless is a bold focal point,” said Luke Siow, Zephyr President. “A lot of people associate the golds with being wealthy or richer,” noted Nermoe. “Dornbracht has a free standing tub filler which is matte black on the base and rose gold for all the accents. It is a statement piece and sells for around $10,000. We have one on display in our Fargo showroom; we move it around – it probably weighs as much as a Buick and yes, it is selling,” she noted. “I love Dornbracht’s traditional finishes with a modern flair,” Nermoe added.

115


Designers have mentioned that here in the U.S., Dornbracht was one of the first to show rose gold. They added the rose gold sheen to their fitting Tara and Tara Classic, as well as their single-lever 360° range-ofmotion mixer Pivot, which it introduced in 2013. They call the high gloss finish Cyprum – a name derived from the Latin word "Cuprum" for copper. The finish is made of 18-carat gold and copper. As we are hearing, look for the on-trend metals being mixed with matte colors, normally black or white. The combination is eye catching. The combination of this white and rose gold sink from Thompson Traders recently caught my eye, and was in fact some of the inspiration for this story idea.


DESIGN&LIVING TRENDING

So, did the Girl Scouts have it right? Do we make new “friends,” but keep the “old?” “Polished nickel, we still do 10 times as much in that,” said Nermoe. “Polished nickel is huge, it has a rich, classic and timeless look you don’t typically see with chrome.” “We still do a fair amount of old rubbed bronze, for a more traditional home or in lakes area,” explained Martin. “It is a little more woodsy, rustic. But, I think the warmer version of brass, whatever you call it, will be a finish which will be around for long time. Before it was chrome nickel or a dark finish; there was never a happy medium between oil rubbed bronze and brushed nickel. It fills the void. There is now a cool to warm tone all the way across.”

Avery Commons

With a creative design by Holly & Co. Classic Homes, Avery Commons in Cottagewood feels nothing like the typical townhome. In fact, showcasing their design on this year's Parade of Homes, Holly & Co. outwitted more than a few touring guests with their clever floor plan, offering all the appeal and privacy of a single family home with the low maintenance of a townhome.

About Avery Commons These association-based townhomes are fully customizable and consist of nine buildings with 18 townhome units. Townhomes start at $368,900. "As far as the exterior, we didn't want it to feel like you're sharing your driveway, or sharing your sidewalk," said Kirsten Waverek of Holly & Co. Classic Homes. "We wanted it to feel like your own house with privacy." Just across the street, Holly & Co. will be offering five single family homes for even more privacy. There are no age restrictions for living in this neighborhood. Association fees manage lawn care and snow removal.

DESIGN&LIVING BUILD Upscale Downsizing With a floor plan placing all necessary rooms on the main floor, these homes are a must-see option for empty nesters, as well as families looking to downsize. "The whole thought behind Avery Commons is simplified living. This is a great option for empty nesters that have a place at the lake and want easy living. They don't want to have to worry," said Waverek. "If they've spent a significant amount of time raising their family in a 5,000-square-foot home, they just don't want to deal with it anymore. They're downsizing. So, we really wanted to create a product that was what we call 'upscale downsizing.' You're still getting the amenities you want, but you're not having to accommodate the square footage." "We've actually had some interest too from younger professionals who are just starting out on their career. They put in a lot of hours and they don't want to be in an apartment, but they don't want to be dealing with all the house care stuff on the outside," said Elliot Steinbrink, Project Manager at Holly & Co. "If they're traveling or if they're gone, they know that their yard is getting taken care of, their snow is getting moved and they don't have to worry about that among all the other things that they're doing."

Low Maintenance Living Sprinkler system and seed are included with each townhome. Landscaping can be added to the contract or done afterwards. Homeowners here actually own the land, so any patio or yard work is completely customizable.

Touring Avery Commons Currently for sale, this Rennie plan by Holly & Co. features mainly standard finishes with upgrades to the cabinetry, fireplace surround and master bathroom. Since it overlooks Cottagewood pond, residents here don't see neighbors, just gorgeous views. Main Level On the main level, beautiful finishes are key for Holly & Co. Handscraped woodlike, laminate flooring, Carrara marble tops, polished nickel, built-ins, french doors and their signature character windows make it a stand out home.

Laundry Just off the kitchen is a convenient walkin pantry, coat closet and laundry room. "In this case, we did stackables here, but somebody could come in and do side by sides, you'd just lose a bit of countertop space," said Steinbrink.

COLOR Color, without realizing it, can profoundly affect how we feel both mentally and physically. The mind wears the colors of the soul. The early work of color psychology goes back to Carl Jung, who studied colors as a tool for psychology. This led to color therapy, which is accepted and used as a reference by architects, interior decorators and designers. By Linda Birmingham Photos courtesy of Sherwin Williams

"COLORS, LIKE FEATURES, FOLLOW THE CHANGES OF EMOTIONS." Pablo Picasso

MOODY BLUE

There are thousands of colors and names for each one of them. One of my favorites is Sherwin Williams's "Moody Blue." Though the name sounds like a color that could agitate, it's not. On the contrary, it's a green-blue that we often use in bathrooms and bedrooms to create a spa-like atmosphere, instilling feelings of calmness and serenity. Cool colors are best suited where people want to relax. Greys, browns and taupes are neutrals that are clean and calm and can be a great backdrop in any room. Paired up with neutral furniture, they are the safest paint colors and oftentimes the richest.

Designingwomen2 will occasionally recommend a red tone. Red is used more often as an accent color or in dining rooms where social behavior is encouraged. Red tones create intimacy and warmth. Don't be tempted to select red for a bedroom, however, it's not meant to promote relaxation.

Yellow is just a happy, warm color. When a person enters a buttery, soft, yellow room, they feel cheerful and optimistic. However, depending on intensity and the tone, yellow can also be tiring to the eye and bring out feelings of anger and frustration. Color Confused? I always emphasize that choosing colors for your home is one of the most important decisions in the decorating process. If you don't feel confident and you're just not sure, please feel free to consult with one of us at Designingwomen2.
