a letter from the publisher


I love how it makes me feel. Being in here can brighten any day.


—Jayne Sachs

Jayne’s cheerful outlook on life is infectious. It was such a pleasure getting to know her and witnessing the joy she feels every time she enters her newly remodeled kitchen. Like Jayne, I think we all have that one room in the house that has the power to alter moods. In fact, this issue is all about altering one of the most important aspects in life—your home. In addition to Jayne’s dramatic kitchen renovation, we’re also showcasing an unbelievable outdoor living space tucked behind a historic Eaton home. Mark and Kathy Willis have managed to retain the home’s 1830s charm while adding modern amenities their whole family can enjoy. Both Jayne and the Willises were able to incorporate salvaged pieces into their renovations, so we couldn’t think of a better time to introduce you to the world of reclaimed furniture. We’re offering tips on how you can repurpose and reuse many different kinds of furnishings and highlighting a few local businesses that can help you embark on this new adventure. Be sure to check out for bonus photos of the homes featured in this issue, as well as additional home and garden ideas if you are ready to tackle your next remodeling project. Happy Halloween and Happy Decorating!

It seemed a rather daunting task—

transform an overgrown back yard into an outdoor paradise that replicates the historic beauty found inside Mark and Kathy Willis’ Eaton home. F The family moved into the period home in 1999. Mark and Kathy say the yard had served its initial purpose, which was to offer a space for young kids to play. Now it was time to recreate a new lifestyle that would serve grown-up activities, including a place to practice their golf swing—a favorite family pastime. Priorities first Over time, the back yard became a forgotten piece of the Willis homestead. Then the project was delayed, in part, due to Mark’s cancer diagnosis in June of 2010. “The diagnosis made us think that life is too short and we want to enjoy every minute of it,” says Kathy. With no suburban basement for “hanging out”, Kathy and Mark wanted to offer a recreational space so their kids could have friends over to visit. “It wasn’t as daunting as it looked,” says Dave Swearingen, a landscape architect and owner of The Site Group. “It already had a sense of intimacy. Every square foot was contained.” continued >

Kathy and Mark were just glad to see The Site Group’s plans in hand. After a long search that included five total bids, they were thrilled to see a landscape architect that understood a contemporary outdoor space didn’t do justice to the beauty of an 1830s period home. Even though Kathy had collected photographs of a southern-style Charleston garden, her dream idea, “it was tough to communicate that to designers. It was the longest part of the process.” While open outdoor recreation spaces are all the rage right now, Swearingen says the couple kept a primitive décor inside, adopting the original character of the house and adding modern conveniences. So he set out to create a design and find materials that allowed the new space to continue the antique, classic story found on the home’s interior.

Preserving the past One original feature of the house—a detached summer kitchen, used currently for storage—remained in place, although The Site Group turned the fireplace around so it faced the newly created pavilion that serves as the main feature of the renovation. Summer kitchens were once the only way to cook during the hot months. “Dave was the only one who knew what it was,” laughs Kathy, recalling her long search for the right contractor. Like the inside of the Willis’ home, Swearingen set out to create a period look that included modern conveniences. The Site Group used brick pavers for the patio as they offer a rustic appearance and durability. Swearingen also installed slate flagstone on the pavilion floor as well an accent stripe around the patio. “The flagstone has a nice hand-tooled edge to give it an antique feel,” he says. An existing limestone retaining wall saved a bit of time and resources. The Site Group then used buff-to-blue stone from Wysong Stone Co. in Lewisburg, Ohio for another retaining wall and for a grill counter, the latter of which is blind-mortared. Because the home is situated in an urban setting, adding a water feature to help drown out the traffic noise was an important element to the family. The Site Group jumped at the chance to modify an old cast iron water feature into a cascading fountain. The historic, finished product faces the main outdoor patio and can be heard from additional, adjacent seating areas. Swearingen says there were some drainage issues on the property, but they were solved by ‘re-routing’ water away from neighboring land, allowing it to ‘percolate’ and gradually soak into the landscape flowerbeds. continued >

Modern comforts Of course, even though the house’s history dates back long before television, it was one outdoor priority as was a bar and dining space. The television is tucked into the corner of the pavilion, hanging near the fireplace above a comfortable sectional sofa. The family spends a lot of time lounging out here, watching golf tournaments and other sporting events, rain or shine. continued > A small pavilion was constructed between the house and summer kitchen. INSET: Durable outdoor furniture, with buttery yellow cushions and accent pillows, beckons family and friends to sit and stay awhile.

In addition to the pavilion, the patio is surrounded by already-established pocket gardens featuring iron planting urns and the rich textures reminiscent of the old south. Since installing a backyard chipping and putting green isn’t characteristic of deep-south properties, The Site Group had to find a way to make it accessible without overshadowing the historic beauty already underway. They brought in Buckeye Putting Greens, based in Springboro, to help with this portion of the overhaul. The putting green is expertly hidden behind a white fence and colorful plantings.

Enjoying the great outdoors Swearingen says open-air outdoor spaces are a current trend, having taken over three-season rooms for the time being. “People seem willing to trade the protection of indoor rooms for outside beauty.” Kathy agrees. “We’re active, outdoor people. Since we don’t have a front porch, I tell my children all the time that one of my favorite things growing up was sitting outside listening to the rain. Now we have the perfect, private spot to do that and many more activities.” Last year the family hosted 60 people in the new space to celebrate Mark’s 50th birthday. “We couldn’t have been more comfortable,” Mark says. Thanks to the fireplace, the Willis family can enjoy the outdoors down to about 50 degrees, and Kathy adds the space is cooler than she expected after a long, hot day on the links. Swearingen especially likes how the finished project proves that a contemporary style isn’t the only option for open-air pavilion spaces. “If you have a primitive or sleek interior, you don’t want overstuffed chairs outside,” he says. “Some people just accept what’s popular versus working with the indoor story. I always tell people to look at what they enjoy inside and see if it can be taken outdoors.”

an instant connection Trotwood kitchen renovation showcases popular trends

By Julie Thompson | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp/Visual Edge Imaging Jayne Sachs says she felt physically uncomfortable when she first walked through the kitchen in the home she and her husband would soon buy. F Those feelings were a big deal to Jayne, who as a singer and songwriter relies heavily on the emotional impression things and places make on her. Still, the allure of the Trotwood home overshadowed the kitchen’s failings and gave her enough drive to see how she could transform the space into something she would someday sing about.

kitchen trends

Before & After

Looking toward the future Jayne and her husband, George Carras, had ample time to think about their decision since the home was in foreclosure. The move would be a big change for the couple. They were currently living in a house built specifically for them, but since designing that home their family had grown with the addition of two children. They were now looking for a home that could accommodate family living more than one that was characterized by contemporary design. Jayne took advantage of the time she had by calling on an interior design expert to help her think through the kitchen space and envision its potential. “I brought in a designer who I have been working with for years,” she says of Winnie Cleavenger of Winteriors. “I wanted her to see it before we made an offer and to see if it had potential from a design stand point. When I told her that it didn’t have a pantry, we decided that would be the starting point.” Jayne had enough confidence to know she could buy the home and transform it into the haven she dreamed about for her family. However, what she didn’t realize was all that awaited her on the other side of the door.

A door into the past Jayne and Cleavenger set out to find a unique and special door that would not only serve as the pantry door, but also as the starting point for the kitchen’s entire design. “Winnie mentioned finding an old salvage door for the kitchen and when she said that, something clicked and it just felt so right,” Jayne says. continued > OVERLEAF: The oak pantry door was saved from a demolished Cleveland, Ohio home. LEFT: The black painted perimeter cabinets feature a glaze that gives the wood an antique look.

housetrends greater miami valley 41 038-044 tKIT AnInstantConnection.indd 41

9/20/12 1:20:37 PM

The two began researching salvage doors and eventually came upon one in Indianapolis. The beautifully rounded oak door had been saved from a home torn down in Cleveland, Ohio. The door—as unique as its design was—wasn’t what caught Jayne’s attention. It was its hardware. The door’s hinges were a separately salvaged piece taken from a former allgirls boarding school called St. Mary of the Woods. “Not only did I love the name (of the school) and the images that it brought up in my head, but I told the guy I loved having hinges that may have helped girls in the late 1800s sneak out of the building at night,” she says. Jayne felt an instant connection to the door’s history—even if it was mainly about its small black hinges—and the girls who used it. She once attended boarding school herself. She knew then that she had not only found the catalyst for her kitchen design, but also the beginning of a beautiful new song.

Creating a warm atmosphere The door became the centerpiece for all the details that followed. Both its design and color created a working palette from which light fixtures and glazes were chosen. Just because Jayne allows her decisions to be driven by feel doesn’t mean she leaves her logic behind. For months, she spent hours at her computer researching ideas and consulting with Cleavenger about how each idea could work. The two took a rather untraditional route in planning the kitchen and decided to start by painting its walls before anything else was chosen. While painting is usually the last step in a room’s remodel-

Before & After ing plan, Jayne knew she couldn’t make other decisions until the room was covered in a color that made her feel good inside. Jayne chose to paint the walls Greenfield Pumpkin by Benjamin Moore, which not only warmed the room, but also brought out the deep hues in the pantry door and the room’s original oak floors. Next, she wanted to find a color for her custommade cabinets. She tried a lighter tone, but soon realized she needed something darker to match the iron straps on the pantry door. She chose Sherwin-Williams’ Black Bean with a glaze that eventually altered the color after several rubs. Jeff Miller, owner of M/M Construction, constructed the kitchen and wasn’t the least bit fazed by Jayne’s non-traditional way of creating her kitchen design. In fact, his Brookville business specializes in unique projects. “It was completely her vision,” Miller says. “We tried to take the things that she liked and make it so that it would be symmetrical and balanced. Personally, I felt it came together really well.” The functionality of the room was also important. Jayne wanted its design to promote fellowship not only within her family of four, but also with guests. The design of the island was an integral part of accomplishing that. Originally, the design called for two islands, but then it was decided that one would create a more cohesive, dramatic effect. The island’s lighter cabinetry adds a nice contrast to the dark woodwork in the room and the matching granite countertops tie it together with the main work area. Meanwhile, the iron chandeliers hanging above the island match the style brought out in the pantry door’s scrolls. continued > LEFT: The range hood serves as the centerpiece of the room and soars to the ceiling, creating a dramatic effect.

Before & After

Coffee and comfort Perhaps the second most important aspect of her kitchen—behind the pantry door’s design—was the need for a coffee station. Jayne is a self-proclaimed coffee lover and admits that a warm cup of java just makes her feel good all over. Miller made the coffee station’s countertop four inches higher than the other counters in the kitchen. The counter’s height set the area apart, but Jayne was also in pursuit of a unique backsplash to add to its look. She spent hours on the Internet looking for a unique tile design and, unbeknownst to her, stumbled upon a designer from her past. Jayne chose a coffee cup design that had been created by Evelia Sowash, a Dayton artist who had helped her create one of her first album covers in the early 1990s. Jayne was thrilled to work with someone she knew and also to support another local artist. After all, the creation of her kitchen had become less of a construction project and more of an artistic experience. Each artistic touch has turned the kitchen into a space that beckons her presence. It’s a room that evokes good feelings and promotes family unity. “I have many favorite times in my kitchen,” Jayne says. “One is when my kids are at the island and I am able to give them a quick bite to eat and we talk and I’m able to get things done while I am still facing them.” Perhaps even more powerful, however, is the room’s ability to lift her spirits with one long look. “I love in the morning going to get my cup of coffee and standing back in the corner and just looking at it,” she says. “I love how it makes me feel. Being in here can brighten any day.”

eoo Creative thinking turns would-be trash into ingenious treasure

savvy style

By Stephanie Aurora Lewis Repurposing-inspirational stores are recycling meccas for the eco-savvy, creative, and adventurous homeowner. When patrons visit these stores, they hopefully walk out with a treasure that will tell a story about its past and foretell of its owner’s future ingenuity. These stores help us to save memories and to avoid waste.

9/20/12 1:22:28 PM


A patron usually has one of three different general ideas for their treasure. One, they will reuse the item as it was originally designed such as a bathroom sink relocated to a new home. Secondly, the item could be generally used in the same way, but located creatively such as older kitchen cabinets used for a laundry room. Thirdly, purchased items can be used for completely unique purposes such as an old door used for a table top. Store owners receive donations or arrange special purchases from people that own buildings that are either renovated or demolished. In fact, these store owners are a type of hero that goes into areas where building materials would normally be sent to the landfill and they gather it all up and take it back to their store to clean and organize so that it can be purchased often for only a fraction of its original price. The variety of acquired materials ranges from basic architectural supplies such as over-ordered items to vintage light fixtures, decorative banisters, and century-old oak wood trim. On one hand, excessive building supplies are reused rather than wasted. On the other hand, special architectural features and history are preserved. “You can look at some of our items and recognize that we are keeping the city’s history alive,” says Lisa Doxsee, communications manager of Building Value in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Unpredictability must be seen as an opportunity more than as a challenge. “Often times, the items are ‘project starters,’” says Doxsee. Items move quickly, so your project ideas must be flexible. Some of the most common challenges include finding items that are the correct size for their intended repurposed locations and functions. For example, if a homeowner plans to purchase a vintage sink for their bathroom remodel, it may take several weeks before finding the sink that has the desired style and the specific size needed. Sometimes traveling from store to store or making a trip to another city is needed if you do not have a time constraint. In this case, flexibility and planning ahead are key strategies for a repurposing project. It is so much easier to purchase a new coffee table from a furniture store rather than to make enormous efforts creating a coffee table out of unusual sorts of salvaged materials. There are advantages, however, and rewards for ingenuity and hard work. For a college student, the repurposed coffee table may better fit their budget. For the artist, the coffee table will engender a dearness that comes only from building a vision. For the eco-savvy homeowner, repurposing is one of the most enjoyable ways to improve the environment by diverting waste from the landfill. Aside from frequenting a repurposing store for a home project, store owners have noted high school students come to find supplies for theatrical settings, artists find reclaimed materials for sculptures, jewelry, and furniture, and entrepreneurs such as restaurant-owners find the unique items they need to create a fun and swanky interior design.

Resources such as magazines and blogs are useful for the creative repurposing homeowner. If inspiration comes easy, but fulfilling the inspiration is a challenge, there are contractors and specialized furniture companies that can construct the project. “We have posted photographs of ideas that our patrons have shared with us to help shoppers come up with their own ideas,” says Chris Sauer, owner of Columbus Architectural Salvage. Employees and store owners are also great resources for the patron who needs guidance with creativity, inspiration, and/or the realization of the project.

Some extreme designers have taken repurposing to another level by renovating an entire kitchen by using all salvaged and reclaimed materials. In this case, mixing up materials is a key design element.

It would also take careful thinking and purchasing so that the project’s materials are all purchased in advance before beginning construction. Take care to recognize personal dangers such as lead paints that

may coat many of the best items in the store. No matter how large or small the project, there is great satisfaction to be found when saving waste and creativity meet.

furnishingtrends Whether or not you plan to use materials from a reuse store, it would be of great value to think about donating your items because, “Deconstruction is simply the right thing to do. It creates jobs, it reduces the amount of waste going to our landfills, it saves valuable natural resources and it preserves architectural antiques that are abundant in historical buildings,” says Jerry Janszen, director of Building Value in Cincinnati. Below is some information shared by Lisa Doxsee from The Deconstruction Institute website: The deconstruction of a typical 2,000-square-foot wood frame home can yield 6,000 board feet of reusable lumber. This is equivalent to 33 mature trees, or the yearly output of 10 acres of planted pine. The average American home (2,000 square feet), if demolished, would produce about 10,000 cubic feet of debris. Deconstruction is more labor intensive than demolition. Consequently, more time and money is spent on hand labor than on the operation of heavy equipment. Building Value’s job training program creates well-paid, entry-level jobs for the construction trades. The average single family home contains 5,174 pounds of steel and 1,830 pounds of plastics. Net green house gas reduction from recycling this material is 2,956 pounds, a benefit equivalent to the annual CO2 absorption of 114 trees. Each year the United States buries about 33 million tons of wood related construction and demolition debris in our landfills. As anaerobic microorganisms decompose this wood, it will release about 5 million tons of carbon equivalent in the form of methane gas. This is equivalent to the yearly emissions of 3,736,000 passenger cars. Every ton of wood that is reused avoids the creation of 60 pounds of green house gases that would have been created to harvest and mill new lumber.

The Society for the Improvement and Conditions of Stray Animals SICSA was started in 1974 by a group of volunteers looking for an alternative to the traditional animal-welfare systems in place in our community. Volunteer-only in the beginning, SICSA now has 25 paid staff and over 300 volunteers working together to build a strong humane community. With a mission of promoting the welfare of companion animals and nurturing loving, lifelong relationships between animals and people, SICSA offers numerous animal –centered programs and services including: • Caring for stray and unwanted companion animals until they can be rehomed; including high-quality medical care, nutrition, socialization, training and support. • Expert and easily-assessable matching and adoption services between potential families and our animals both in our center, which is open seven days a week, and in locations throughout the community. • Experienced and low-cost spay and neuter services for low and moderate income families, aimed at reducing the number of unwanted and stray pets in our neighborhoods for those who would normally not be able to afford it. • Professional humane education programs for children, youth and adults to help inform and promote issues around animal welfare and pet owner responsibility. • Community involvement through volunteerism for young people and adults, resulting in a decrease in isolation and an increase in skills for both the volunteer and the animals they serve.

Housing and Exercise: Cage should be large enough for bird to fly short distances and should be cleaned every other day. Lining the cage with a thin layer of gravel will aid in the cleaning process -- and the parrot’s digestion. Betta Fish Life Span: Up to 3 years. Best For: Any age. Feeding: Commercial betta food. Housing and Exercise: You can skip the complicated aquariums and filter. Just keep your betta’s fish bowl water clean and warm. They do best in water that’s 78 degrees to 80º.

Feeding wild birds is not only rewarding, but it supplies them with a much-needed source for energy, especially when natural food sources are limited. When you offer local birds a place to dine, you’re sure to catch a glimpse of species that you may not see otherwise. These are a few helpful tips to help you enjoy feeding wild birds even more. • Birdseed, like all food, has an expiration date. Before refilling feeders, remove any old, moldy, or clumped seed. • Introduce enthusiastic children to wild bird feeding with suet. • Before you buy a feeder, consider where you want to place it. You’ll want to be able to see it and easily add seed when the weather is bad. • Leave your hummingbird feeders filled with nectar and visible for two weeks after you see your last hummingbird. • Feeders with protective metal barriers keep hungry squirrels away from your birdseed. • Spring and summer are the most stressful periods for our wild bird population. • Clean your feeders regularly and rinse thoroughly.

Nature Bathroom remodel inspired by natural materials

By Christina Kleiner Photos by Daniel Feldkamp/Visual Edge Imaging Randy and Robyn Lane were strolling through the Cincinnati Home and Garden Show in 2011 hoping for a little inspiration when they stumbled upon the display that sparked their next home improvement project. Over the last 14 years, they had updated several rooms in their Lebanon home, but they had yet to touch the master bathroom. “It was a typical 90s bathroom with white cabinetry, light blue tile and white grout, which is so difficult to clean,” Robyn says. “We built the home before we had children and, after all these years, the space wasn’t practical.” continued >

A chance encounter While perusing the home show, the Lanes met contractor Dwayne Davidson, owner of Morrow, Ohio-based Trim Masters Remodeling and Custom Building. Davidson’s show display featured a custom master bathroom. “I do this each year at the show,” Davidson says. “I find that it allows people to envision what they can do in their own home and it gives them a chance to see what we are capable of creating.” The Lanes met with Davidson several times in order to come up with a blueprint for their bathroom remodel. “The space had a lot of potential, thanks to the vaulted ceiling and skylight,” Davidson explains. “They have a great house but the bathroom just didn’t fit. They wanted a space inspired by nature, with a

little pop of color.” In order to take advantage of the natural light coming in through the skylight, Davidson suggested removing the original shower wall and replacing it with glass. Creamy, earth-toned travertine was carried up to the ceiling and a recessed shelf, accented with glass mosaic tile, runs the length of the shower wall. A chrome rain showerhead and hand-held wand add convenience and style. “Our biggest challenge in the old bathroom was that it was always dark,” says Robyn. “By taking down the wall and adding the glass doors we no longer feel like we’re showering in a cave.” continued >

OVERLEAF: Dry stack slate accentuates the wall behind the freestanding soaking tub. ABOVE: Rectangular travertine sinks establish the modern theme in the master bathroom. OPPOSITE: The espresso double vanities are counter-height to accommodate the homeowner’s tall frame.

Thoughtful details The Lanes also had to take their height difference into account when designing the new bathroom. At 6’7”, Randy stands well over Robyn’s 5’4” frame. “We needed to include accouterments that we could both easily use,” Robyn adds. They were able to find a freestanding acrylic soaking tub and counter-height espresso vanities that accommodate both of their statures. The unique vanities feature travertine countertops and sinks. Sleek waterfall faucets add a modern touch, while the center cabinet separates the vanities and offers convenient draw-

ers. “I found the vanities online and fell in love with the smooth streamlined design,” Robyn says. Davidson suggested covering the wall behind the bathtub with dry stack slate natural stone to complement the rich espresso finish of the vanities and to bring out the tones of the glass tile in the shower. “The detail and intricacy of natural stone will never go out of style,” he says. “You can’t go wrong with travertine or slate.” continued >

OPPOSITE: The travertine shower features a recessed shelf boasting glass mosaic tile. TOP LEFT: The shower also features a hand-held showerhead. TOP MIDDLE: Artos waterfall faucets add visual interest to the bathtub and vanity sinks. TOP RIGHT: A rain showerhead hangs from the ceiling.

A bright complexion Robyn chose a soothing gray-blue hue for the walls for the perfect pop of color. “We couldn’t be happier with how our bathroom turned out,” she says. “It is such an inviting, natural space, and it fits in beautifully with the rest of our house.”

TIP NO. 05 REMODELING No one likes to cut a budget, especially when it’s his or her own. But when it comes to planning a remodeling project, homeowners must establish a realistic budget . . . and actively manage it. Preparing for a remodeling project is a lot like preparing to buy a car. You may know the room and style you want, but the options you choose may drive the price higher than you can reasonably afford. But there are ways to stretch the remodeling budget and end up with stylish results within budget. IN THE KITCHEN UÊÊvÊ >ÌÊ >Ê «œÃÈLi]Ê ÀiÕÃiÊ i݈Ã̈˜}Ê >««ˆ>˜ViÃ]Ê >˜`Ê LՈ`Ê ÞœÕÀÊ ˜iÜÊ cabinets around them. This could save you anywhere from $1,500–5,000 easily. However, be aware that appliances, like anything electrical, are sensitive to change and may develop problems if they are moved. Should you decide to avoid potential appliance “burn–out” and purchase new appliances, choose energy conscious models for a reduction in your utility bills.

Even a high-end chrome faucet is considerably less than a mid-range brass or porcelain version. A standard two-handle faucet generally costs less than single handle. Faucets and handles are sold separately, so you may want to choose a chrome faucet with brass or porcelain handles for a different look. Faucet caution: The price variances in faucets reflect the various internal >˜`Ê iÝÌiÀ˜>Ê vi>ÌÕÀiÃ°Ê Ü>ÞÃÊ V…œœÃiÊ >Ê v>ÕViÌÊ ÜˆÌ…Ê Ài«>Vi>LiÊ internal parts.
