a letter from the publisher

If you take out

the team in

teamwork, it’s just work. Now

who wants that?


—Matthew Stover

Have you noticed what makes a winner? If you live in Columbus you don’t have to look far to see it. Obvious winners are our Buckeyes, whose men’s football and basketball teams have won every game but one since I arrived in town in July. (In Cincinnati it only takes two weeks to lose two games.) Coaches Thad Matta and Jim Tressel know, as well as any of us, that individuals don’t win cham­ pionships. Recently, I noticed this same attitude when my wife Sarah and I attended the annual CotY awards hosted by the Central Ohio office of NARI. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry is made up of folks from the fields of remodeling and design. I could not be any more impressed that these people who com­ pete with each other in many cases, gather to share ideas about best practices and laugh heartily while they are together. They recog­ nize that good competition helps us grow. And I would be remiss if I did not men­ tion our winning team at Housetrends. It takes committed graphic designers, writers, photographers, sales and production people to build each issue, and no one part is more important than another. Despite the last two Sarah and Sam Wilder years of economic challenges, the magazine you’re holding is our biggest February magazine in three years. (Everyone exhale audibly.) Whether or not you’re a fan of contemporary design, I think you’ll be entertained by what’s inside this issue. There’s a great overview of contem­ porary kitchens, a beautifully complex small bathroom space (a CotY winner), a primer on collecting mid-century modern and a tulip pictorial that will have you thinking about spring. Let’s celebrate…after all we are a city that knows how to win.

internist and his wife first walked into a house that was on the market in Bexley,

Plus the two are particularly drawn to ranches. Their first home together was a small ranch in Indianapolis. The couple, both of Indian descent, love the genre’s all-American appeal—the style was originated in the 1930s by several California architects. “My husband says, ‘We’re in America, so we’ll have an American home,’” she says. “It reminded me of photos I had seen of great mid-century homes in LA,” he says. “It had beautiful overhangs that are typical of that time period.”

A few tweaks One thing the husband saw that he thought was out of character for the layout of this style of home was the fact that the kitchen and family room were not connected. Actually there was a wall between the two areas and a fireplace was wedged in a walkway between the two rooms—possibly the result of an earlier remodel. “Typically, these homes were designed with an open floor plan where the main cook could participate with family,” he says. “The first thing I wanted to do was open that space up. One thing led to another and here we are.” “Here we are” signifies the end of an overhaul which began about a year after the couple purchased the home and ended nine months later. Work would include a total kitchen and foyer makeover; significant updates to every bathroom in the home; a finished basement with a theatre room; a new laundry room; and closet systems. When J.S. Brown & Co. came on board to lead the remodeling efforts, the homeowners already had initial plans from an architect and had selected an Indianapolis-based kitchen design firm. The couple needed a local remodeling team to coordinate the logistics, further design the remaining rooms in the home, and make the plans a reality. “They wanted to do it all at once and get it over with,” says Monica Miller, a designer with J.S. Brown & Co. who saw the job through along with project manager Dave West. “They have two active girls and they needed a house that their family could spread out in and use every inch of,” Miller says.

Wide open spaces The new open floor plan has lots of benefits. The kitchen is now open and connected to the adjacent family room and eating area. “This opens up our views outside,” she says. “We love the connection you feel with the outdoors when you live in this style home.” continued > OPENING SP READ: A Mod Area Rug from two vintage st ore an chors the Shetland Sheepd chairs in the family room.

Island home In the center of the room stands a sleek island covered with Mocha Caesarstone rising up from the floor, across the top surface and back down. It houses no appliances or sink, but rather space for storage and a couple of barstools. It’s no surprise that this has turned out to be the hub of a lot of the home’s activities. “It’s turned out to be even more functional than we thought it would be when we designed it,” he says. Guests gather here, kids use it for homework—and the list goes on. “My four year old pulls up a stool. She has an easel, but sometimes she just prefers to paint here,” he says.

Function first In fact all furnishings in the home are selected with function in mind and the hope of creating an organic feel. “We feel when we look at the furniture it doesn’t necessarily stand out,” she says, “It looks like it was always there.” Two mid-century chairs seem perfect for flanking the fireplace in the hearth room. When the homeowner came upon them at Flower Child in Short North, she fell in love with them, even though at the time she wasn’t totally up to speed on the midcentury look. “I was just trying to buy furniture because we had this big empty space to fill,” she says. “I was surprised by how comfortable they were.”

The couple’s four-year-old daughter loves how the new floor plan allows her to ride her scooter “around and around” between the interconnected rooms. And her 13-year-old sister loves the new place too. “This is the kind of style that appeals to young people,” her mother says. “It’s full of color and more on their scale. We have no massive pieces of furniture.”

Now we’re cooking Even though the paint is barely dry, the couple has already hosted several family gatherings. Since the family lived in the home during the renovation, they frequently took advantage of kind offers of a warm meal from friends and relatives. “That’s why we are hosting so many holidays now,” she says. “We owe them.” As the primary cook, the wife loves the new Viking stove—her first time cooking with gas. One of her favorite meals to prepare for family and friends is a classic Indian dish, Tomato Rice. (See we are for recipe.) Her husband takes credit for the striking range hood that looms over the entire surface of the stove. The Vent a Hood insert he discovered creates an incredibly efficient updraft—something he feels is important to their kitchen. “Indian cooking often uses a lot of oil and has scents that tend to linger,” he says.

Mid-century to the core Today the homeowner is far more familiar with mid-century specifics and shares her husband’s philosophy when it comes to furnishings. “Pieces need to just stand for what they are,” he says. “If they have a lot of affectation and are too much on the eye, they don’t really satisfy.” Those sound like words straight out of a Modernist movement text book.

landscapetrends More than 5,000 brilliant tulips mass together, creating a crimson river of color that flows across the front lawn of a Westerville home, welcoming visitors and dazzling passers-by. Synonymous with spring, tulips are among the first bulbs to announce the end of the snowy season. Their cup-shaped blooms top sturdy stems that reach more than a foot to greet the earlyspring sun. “We planted the bulbs in dense pockets in curvilinear forms to highlight the perimeter of the front landscape gardens and to achieve the dramatic statement the homeowners were seeking,” says Jon Spayde, landscape designer and president of Landfare, Ltd. “Tulips are among the hardiest of bulbs and will hold their blooms for several weeks, depending on availability of water,” he adds. Spayde’s dramatic design is centered on existing star magnolias and dogwoods the homeowners wanted to retain. Planted in late fall—before the first freeze—these French, Red Emperor border tulips, with their bright red petals and black, yellow-accented centers, seemingly stand sentinel to the backyard treasure created by the homeowners. As guests are invited around the side of the two-story brick home, they are led along a phalanx of azaleas and hydrangeas skirting the deck and patio, which are adjacent to the rear entrance, to discover a hidden gem—a beautiful meditation garden, also designed and implemented by Spayde. continued > OVERLEAF: A harbinger of spring, this blooming dogwood sets the stage for the dramatic scarlet show, visible from the street.

“We wanted to create a peaceful place where we could enjoy being outdoors, but feel as if we shut ourselves off from our daily cares,” the homeowner explains. “With our back yard facing a golf course, we enjoy the vast expanse of green, but also desire privacy where we can relax with family and friends,” she adds. Encircled by a screen of six-foot arborvitae, the couple’s outdoor living space is accessed through an antique iron gate they rescued from a salvage yard. Mounted on brick columns, the entry gate is across the circle from matching gates on the other side, that perfectly frame the setting sun. continued > ABOVE: Masses of fragrant spring tulips create a bold statement, softened by star magnolias.

Birdsong and gently falling water mingle to create a restful backdrop for conversation and relaxation. “On warm summer evenings when everyone gravitates to our little bower and we light the candles and turn on the accent lights in the fountain, it feels like we are a million miles away, yet right at home,” she says.

Unad rn e A look at Housetrends’ favorite contemporary kitchens that focus on function By Karen Bradner

In the essay “Ornament and Crime,” Adolf Loos writes that ornamentation contributes to objects becoming out of style and eventually obsolete. This doctrine became a foundation of the Modernist movement that was popular in the U.S. after World War II. Homes, kitchens and furniture from this time period are often referred to as “mid-century modern.” After the 1970s, the look transformed slightly to what is now called “contemporary,” but the two concepts share a minimalistic, clean-line conviction. ● In cooking up a contemporary kitchen, the primary ingredients are: an open floor plan; efficient space planning; modern appliances and a minimalist design. Take a look at some of these spaces that have recently caught our eye and why.

“The evolution of culture marches with the elimination


ornament from useful objects.” —Austrian architect Adolf Loos, 1908

bathroomtrends Most homeowners hope their home has that “wow factor”—whether it’s their landscaping, kitchen or bathroom. But while one Grandview Heights couple’s guest bathroom had a definite “wow” factor, it wasn’t necessarily a good thing. Chances are likely that upon entering the 70s-era space guests may have thought, “Wow! This is definitely a dated bathroom.”

OVERLEAF: A glass block window, original to the space, is reflected in the vanity’s mirror. OPPOSITE: The curved lines of the cherry countertop allow for easier movement in the tight area. TOP: The blue “before” the bathroom’s makeover. ABOVE LEFT: The commode was recessed into the wall, just a few inches, to give much needed shelf space above. ABOVE RIGHT: Tile accents tie the space together in a subtle fashion.

Seeing blue “It was quite a mess,” Matthew Ray president of Custom Classic Renovations says of his clients’ bathroom. “Not abused or neglected…just blue. Blue tub, blue sink, blue fixtures and white tile.” The homeowners purchased the home in 1997 from the wife’s mother. The house has been in her family since the sixties, and it’s where she grew up. The couple knew their lower-level guest bath needed work when the sink began having drainage issues and the toilet used a large amount of water to flush, but they were skeptical about another renovation project due to a negative experience on a previous kitchen remodel five years earlier. The homeowners took their time selecting a contractor and explained that it was an internet search that led them to

Custom Classic Renovations’ website. The two were impressed by the company’s slogan, “Cheap Work is Never Good, and Good Work is Never Cheap.”

Tall order, short space The homeowners’ wish list centered on the need for a walk-in shower. “As we get older, we know we’ll want an accessible shower on our lower level,” the wife explains. “We also wanted to update our fixtures to make the space more energy efficient.” The homeowners turned to Ray’s team and interior designer Kellie Toole to transform their dated space into a contemporary, spa retreat. “The bathroom was modest in size, but we gave it a large feel,” Ray says. The design team gutted the bathroom down to the studs and then worked

together to maximize the 5x9-foot space. “The door being in front of the commode made things tight, so we pushed the commode into the wall framing,” Ray says. “This created a space above for storage, which was an added bonus.” A floating cherry countertop also opened the space, and it was design compilation. “My husband picked the vanity,” the wife explains. “He took a picture of his vision to Matthew, and his team made it a reality.” The guest bath is located off the remodeled kitchen, and Ray says the cherry wood was selected to carry the material of the kitchen floor into the space. Three coats of clear polyurethane were applied to protect the wood from water damage. The glass block window opposite the vanity was the only design element kept continued >

from the original space. Ray explains that glass block is not only making a comeback aesthetically for its clean lines, but it allows for maximum daylight. “If we’d installed a regular window, we would have lost two to three inches of the light source on each side.” A Zen mirror, wallpaper and shower tile, selected by Toole, finish the space with a natural, calm feel. “The bathroom really was a combination of the three of us,” the wife says of the homeowner, contractor and designer trio.

This walk-in shower was the central issue behind the remodeling efforts.

The homeowners were so impressed with Ray’s team that they asked them to complete other renovation projects in their home including refinishing their hardwood floors and building a mantle and built-in shelving for their living room. “We really enjoyed working with Matthew and his group,” the wife says. “They are fun and enjoyable to be around. This renovation was a lot of fun.” Ray agrees noting that they took their time working with the homeowners so they would have time to think through every design decision. The finished product was not only beautiful in the homeowners’ and Ray’s eyes, it was also selected as a Contractor of the Year (CotY) award winning project. “We decided to submit this bathroom renovation for the CotY awards because the judges always look for a unique space that no one else has,” Ray says. “I like a challenge, and I like unique projects. This bathroom was definitely both.”

According to this well-respected and comprehensive book, there are five types of Modern houses built in America after 1935: Minimal Traditional, Ranch, SplitLevel, Contemporary and Shed. Our focus here is a subtype of Contemporary: the flat-roofed American International.

The long and short of it The Bauhaus School in Germany developed a program of applied arts that influenced art, architecture, furnishings, graphic design and industrial design. The program incorporated nascent Modern concepts of simplified forms and design based on functionality with an absence of historical references. Many artists of the Bauhaus impacted design elsewhere in Europe, the U.S., Canada and Israel as they fled the growing power and disapproval of the Nazi regime. In 1932, America was introduced to the

International style by a seminal exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art: “The International Style: Architecture Since 1922” that identified and defined the major architectural style born of the Modern concepts that evolved in the 1920s and 30s. The main tenets of the International architectural style (which was based in large part on the Bauhaus philosophy) included radical simplification of form, lack of ornamentation and rejection of historical reference, use of concrete, steel and glass building materials and functionalism. (Functionalism emphasized an “honest” or “transparent” expression in the design of the structure, believing the design elements that served its occupants should not be disguised with useless decoration). Architects Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius were the trendsetters. The International

style has had lasting impact on commercial and residential architecture in the United States. American International homes sometimes take on a “vernacular” (domestic, local) flavor, using materials particular to their locales. Although some maintain a strict adherence to International ideals, some examples adhere more to the “spirit” than the “letter” of the law. Some also incorporate attributes of other modern styles, such as Shed (roofs), and Art Moderne, which was influenced by the streamlined industrial design of airplanes, ships and autos. Art Moderne was similar, and simultaneous to the International style, but not as severely lacking in decorative details. Editor’s note: This quick look at American International style contemporary homes is the first in a series of six guides on residential architecture. Stay tuned!

Is it any wonder

that the musical revolt against Andy Williams

and Lawrence Welk spawned Elvis Presley and The Beatles? Should we be surprised that beehive hairdos in the 50s stirred us to let our hair down or that high-backed, buttoned up sofas were transformed into low slung, open sitting areas that were built to party on? (Do we even need to discuss those brassieres that made breasts look like rocket ships?)

It only takes a spark

It is apropos, then, that there is a resurgence of those simple, straight forward contemporary designs after the overindulgence of the last decade. The trend toward contemporary architecture and kitchen design isn’t the only place that this return to form is evident. The appeal of collecting mid-century modern furniture and accessories has also been rekindled. F Housetrends magazine visited with prominent enthusiasts of this era in Ohio to get a glimpse into a decorating style that can add some avant-garde color and an eclectic bent to any home. When you meet these collectors, you’ll find they have an unbridled enthusiasm that can be at first startling and then oddly infectious. Mid-century modern has that kind of effect on many people, most of whom never saw the approaching obsession.

Joe Valenti, owner of Flower Child, two mid-century modern stores located in Columbus and Cleveland, says most collectors start with “one point of inspiration that ignites the passion.” He feels that the “form follows function” dogma and mid-century modern’s ability to complement many different styles of décor also fuels its popularity. Valenti believes, “The sleek lines, vibrant color and uniqueness of the products allow it to work with modern, industrial and even arts and crafts décor.” The catalogue of mid-century modern is a bit daunting because of its scope—nearly every category of home products manufactured from the late 50s to the early 70s contained items that would be considered to be from this genre. Some of the most beloved categories of the oeuvre include furniture, art, lighting, rugs and barware. There are also a myriad of decorative items like vases, bowls, time pieces and kitchen accessories that have a devoted following. One of the staples of most mid-century modern homes is decorative glassware. The Ohio River Glass Companies in West Virginia housed many of the prominent glass companies in America. Blenko,

Rain­bow, Higgins, and Fen­ ton were major suppliers of this colorful art glass that is highly collectible today. As a rule, with art glass collectors, bigger means more collect­ ible because fewer pieces were made. The bright orange, greens, blues and yellows cre­ ate a palette with a wide range of shapes and styles that allow many new collectors to have fun with design on an open shelf, end table or mantle. LEFT AND ABOVE: Art glass is one of the staples in collecting. The ability to choose shapes and colors and arrange them to your taste, décor and price range makes collecting art glass a great place to start and grow.

A philosophy of life

The furniture of the era is open, clean low slung and angular. Because the era was steeped deeply in cocktail parties and entertaining at home, most of the sofas and sectionals are open on one end to invite conversation. (And most of the fabrics were built to allow a splash of gin without staining.) The furniture was also designed to sit in the middle of an open floor plan, allowing it to look as good from the back as from the front…much like the plunging backs of the party dresses of the day. Some of the furniture manufacturers that are highly collectible are Herman Miller, Paul McCobb, Heywood Wakefield and Knoll. Many of the classic lines of furniture are once again being produced using the original designs.

62 059-066 nFEA ModernRush.indd 62

For some, the collection of mid-century modern has even dictated their lifestyle. Joy and Bruce Rice live in the Rush Creek area of Columbus which was entirely developed with mid-century modern architecture in the late 1950s and 60s. Those homes are being rediscovered today by collectors along with all of the mid-century products those homes housed in the day. The Rush Creek Village neighborhood has recently gained recognition as one of America’s National Historical Places. All 49 homes in it were designed by Ted Van Fossen and built by Martha and Richard Wakefield. Most of the houses featured open floor plans with built-in lights and furniture, and were typically around 2,000 square feet on three levels. It is entertaining to watch how animated the collectors get when talk turns to their specific object of collecting desires. Joy Rice believes the lure of collecting mid-century modern is a combination of the thrill of the hunt, the memories that some objects represent, and the satisfaction in creating your own unique personal décor. Her affection for Ohio and California pottery from the period “borders on an addiction,” she says. Rice also likes the idea of recycling, reclaiming and appreciating found items. “They have a design and style that is unique and nearly all of the items from the period were built to last,” says Rice. Co-owner of Clintonville’s Boomerang Room, Karen Greene Dilgard, shares a similar philosophy. “The choice is clear to me,” she says. “Invest in quality, midcentury pieces or waste good money on new furnishings, most lasting only a few years at best. I choose to recycle the classic and iconic pieces that have stood the test of time.” TOP: The color palette of mid-century modern is consistent enough to match objects across many years and product types. Fiesta and California art pottery accent an original George Nelson clock. BOTTOM: A metal Curtis Jere wall sculpture is a rare find but still affordable at less than $200. RIGHT: Many mid-century modern homes, like this home in Rush Creek, have built in bookshelves, furniture and even lighting that matches the architectural design. (In this case the trim matches the furniture.)

OPPOSITE TOP: Hanging swag lights were all the rage for their ability to mellow it out and direct light onto objects and surfaces that one needed to accent.

Decorating with mid-century modern is a bit of an art in itself. Nizny offers some tips on putting it all together. “Try things…go beyond the tepid box and be experimental. It will take trial and error to get the exact look you want,” Nizny suggests. “Your space should feel like your sanctuary.” Valenti believes it is easier to “create corners of modern beauty” as a starting point and grow your collection from there. He also believes that good interior design uses groupings of three, five or seven objects and that it’s essential to always use the same color palette three times in each room.

The eye of the beholder There is a bit of an art to collecting midcentury modern pieces. Valenti laughs recalling that when he first began collecting it twenty-five years ago his friends would say, “If it’s ugly, Joe owns it.” continued >

But if you stand back and really observe what mid-century modern design is, there is a conclusion that can be drawn. The designers of the day had the courage to step away from tradition and accepted standards of design to create new and dramatically different work. Their courage broke barriers and set the design world on a new course. They are designs that still inspire today and are setting the tone for a new century.

Clean any connective tissue from the breast and thinly slice down the length of the breast. Lightly flatten the pieces with a mallet. Roll the prosciutto together, chop as fine as you can. Mix together with the spinach and cheese. Divide into 4 equal parts. Divide the chicken into 4 equal parts. Begin wrapping each portion of the stuffing with the chicken, being careful to cover any gaps. Season with salt and pepper, and drizzle some balsamic vinegar over the stuffed chicken. Cook in a 350º F oven for 40 minutes. While the chicken is in the oven, simmer the red bell peppers, diced tomatoes, stock and basil on low to medium heat for 15 minutes. Transfer to a blender or use an immersion blender to puree the sauce. Season to taste and serve. Makes 4 servings.

One of the hottest culinary trends in Columbus is to invite an experienced gourmet chef like Matt Prokopchak from Trattoria Roma into your home. Personal chef services range from a romantic dinner for two, all the way up to a big bash to show off a newly remodeled kitchen. Many people that have had the pleasure of this culinary experience say it is both entertaining and convenient. The opportunity to interact with one of the top chefs in Columbus can be quite exciting. Some homeowners have commented that another benefit to personal chef services from restaurants, like Trattoria Roma, is that the kitchen is left looking as good, if not better, than before the chef and culinary team got there. Having a chef come into your home is not just about the great taste of the food, it is about enjoying the full culinary experience. If by chance you are just looking for great tasting food you can request drop off catering or prepared gourmet meal delivery service.
