Green House Effect

I HAVE A THING FOR HISTORIC HOMES. Thanks to the Facebook page “For the

Love of Old Houses,” my daydreams are filled with visions of snatching up abandoned, neglected properties and restoring them to their prior glory. I’m reasonably certain that my imagination has no connection to my actual skill set or bank account. So, I’ll settle for smaller, more realistic tasks around my own abode, a 1926 bungalow that beckoned me with its lovingly maintained woodwork, hardware, and kitchen cabinets. As I prepare for an upcoming project—taking the exterior color from dull, light olive to a more pronounced, yet-to-be-decided shade of green—I also look forward to working on my landscape and figuring out where to incorporate more native species. In this issue, writer Amy Lynch outlines ways to increase sustainability (p. 28) not only in newly built structures, but in aging dwellings like mine, too. Although I reject even a notion of replacing my inefficient original windows, I have already taken some eco-friendly steps by adding insulation, upgrading the roof, and switching out appliances. And I rationalize my addiction to houseplants based on claims that they improve air quality. We have yet to reach summer, but this edition has me thinking ahead to winter, when heated flooring would be a welcome comfort underfoot. Our cover package (p. 38) highlights the latest trends in bathroom products and surfaces, plus luxury features (a wine chiller!) that make the W.C. a very desirable place to be. After that, we’ll give you a peek into a highly customized southside hideout (p. 54) that includes a Japanese soaking tub in the master suite, displays of unique art and collectibles, and a kitchen fit for a chef. I hope these pages provide ideas and inspiration, as well as useful information to find vendors for your endeavors.

A Study in Blue

WHEN JULIE BOUTILIER was tasked with

revamping a dark, paneled library, her clients pointed the lead designer and owner of Cornerstone Interiors in a direction that allowed plenty of leeway for interpretation. “They gave me an essence, and I went from there,” she says. The room, just inside the entrance of the home, had previously been surrounded in stained wood. In an effort to brighten the space, Boutilier decided to go bold with the color and chose Benjamin Moore’s “Twilight” as the primary shade for the walls, doors, and shelving. “[My client] said that her husband loved blue, and so then I just decided to paint the whole room blue,” Boutilier explains. To create a dramatic focal point, she set the fireplace apart by applying a gray hue against an off-white background. Many of the furnishings were specially ordered for the study. A pair of Herman Miller Eames lounge chairs in black and brown leather with matching ottomans flanks the hearth. Behind The adjacent dining room and porcelainfloored hallway are accented by glittering chandeliers from Currey and Company over the table and Visual Comfort in the foyer.

them, a wood table and chairs with graphic zig-zag upholstery contribute to a neutral furniture palette that provides balance against the vivid walls. Soft-beige window treatments designed by Boutilier and fabricated by KBD Home through its custom drapery service allow filtered, natural light to enter. The setting is grounded by Big Sky premium hardwoods in the “Bodega Bay” finish from Viking Flooring and a large area rug from Stark Carpet that was tailored and serged locally. Boutlilier did not work alone in this remodeling venture. She collaborated with Joe Logan of Jones Building Group and contractor Mark Williams, who expertly installed the floors. “There is nobody better in the city. He is crazy good,” she says. 26

different things to different people, but for architects, builders, landscapers, and designers, the term refers to a focus on thoughtful environmental stewardship and responsible use of time, energy, and resources— concepts that are becoming increasingly popular among Central Indiana residents. “It’s not just about energy savings, but also durability of materials, flexibility, and functionality,” says David Rausch, owner of David Rausch Studio. “People and habits change over time, and being able to build structures that are adaptable to those changing needs is so important. A lot of it simply comes down to using good judgment and smart planning without the overuse or underuse of resources.”

Paradigm shift THERE ARE MANY REASONS for homeowners to sit up and pay closer attention to their habits and surroundings. “Some people think about reducing their carbon footprint or having a direct impact on climate change; some may be focused on using less energy in the home and seeing that impact through reduced monthly utility bills,” explains Dan Porzel of Zionsville-based Cedar Street Builders. “Some may be primarily interested in improving indoor air quality and the overall comfort of the home.” The Cube House by NEON Architecture and Cedar Street Builders.

Windsor Park’s Arsenal Row development by NEON Architecture and Cedar Street Builders consists of four units designed with efficiency in mind. The layouts include open floor plans and peaceful outdoor areas.

The altruistic elements of green building often generate the strongest calls to action, but sustainable building and design offers other benefits, too. “There’s also a health consideration— people are concerned with how the quality of the air in their homes is impacting their families,” says Brian Burtch, owner of NEON Architecture. “We’re building homes so much more airtight, but we still have to be very conscious about achieving air movement.” Popular in Europe, the Passive House initiative is now gaining momentum in the U.S. with the goal of reducing the need for heating and cooling through eco-friendly practices that may include 30

increased insulation, thicker walls, multi-paned windows, and maximizing a structure’s exposure to radiant sunlight and/or shade.

Bright future WITHIN THE CENTRAL INDIANA market, favored home products and projects involve the use of geothermal heating systems that rely on innate energy from the earth itself as opposed to fossil fuels. Although solar panels aren’t widely used in Midwestern residential construction, in part because energy costs are

already comparatively lower here than elsewhere around the country, Rausch predicts a shift to come. “We do see interest in the concept,” he says. “There’s just not a good recipe to implement solar into very many of our projects just yet, but I see that changing in the next five to 10 years.” Rapidly renewable resources like bamboo and cork continue to earn accolades from environmentally conscious homebuilders and designers. “Companies are constantly looking for natural alternatives for insulation,” Burtch points out. “As the U.S. starts to allow for industrial use of hemp, I think we’re going to see it popping up more often. There are a lot of interesting ways you can use it, and it’s quickly reproducible after harvesting.” “From an interiors point of view, clients tend to get excited about anything that’s recycled, reclaimed, or repurposed,” says Mary Bonin, an interior design associate with David Rausch Studio. “For example, plastic water bottles are now being used to make a felt-like material that can be utilized in acoustic panels on walls and ceilings. And, through patented processes, denim and paper can be transformed into durable countertops, flooring, and panels. It’s really exciting!”

Porzel agrees, mentioning that many consumers seem to derive a sense of personal satisfaction from knowing that they’re keeping items out of landfills. “One of the biggest changes we’ve seen over the past five years is the development in LED lighting,” he adds. “The energy it takes to light a home is now a fraction of what it was. We’re excited to be implementing a new project that I think will become the standard before long: lighting that uses low-voltage cable in lieu of the typical 120V that’s no longer needed for power. This makes wiring easier, more flexible, and more energy efficient.”

Financial matters WHILE SOME SUSTAINABLE products and

projects can cost more upfront than more traditional counterparts, the long-term energy savings helps many people recoup their investments and may even add value to their homes as well. “We typically have to spend a little more on windows and insulation to buy better-performing, more durable products, but the homeowner will eventually recover this cost,” Porzel says. “The nice thing is that environmentally friendly products like flooring, paints, wood, siding, and plumbing fixtures have gotten so popular, they’ve become the norm and aren’t costing the homeowner more.” Because these products usually offer longer lifespans and increased durability, purchasers don’t need to replace them as often, resulting in further economic benefits over time.

Small measures CREATING MORE EFFICIENT living quarters

doesn’t require you to build a whole new house from the ground up. “We talk to a lot of current homeowners who are trying to decide whether to move or to renovate,” Burtch says. “In many cases, it can be more sustainable to reconfigure, reuse, or repurpose what you already have; upgrade to eco-friendly finishes; or replace inefficient windows and doors.” Rausch indicates that glass technology has come a long way in recent decades to improve quality and thermal comfort. “There’s a lot of housing stock in Central Indiana that was built between 1985 32

blown-in attic insulation can make a positive impact, as we tend to lose a lot of heat out the top of the home. And, check weather seals on windows and exterior doors that may be letting a lot of warm air out.” Making changes and upgrades to historic homes can present unique challenges when it comes to preserving integrity while bringing properties up to date from an efficiency standpoint. “We need to remember that the building codes we use today were developed years ago and are the minimum standard allowed by law,” Porzel stresses. “Why should we aim to just achieve the bare minimum when we can now implement energy practices that will keep these structures relevant in the future?”

“You can focus on sustainability and still create a formal, styled landscape.”

quality, and declining bird and insect populations, eco-conscious landscaping extends the tenets of conservation well beyond a home’s interior walls. “Our goal first and foremost is to do no harm,” says Michael Painton, co-owner and head designer of Greenscape Geeks Landscape Architects. “Sustainable landscapes support plant and animal life and keep pollution out of our water systems.” Painton says he’s seeing a push for more rain garden and bioswale (“a fancy word for ditch”) projects to capture and make use of natural precipitation in low spots where water tends to pool, preventing it from running off directly into storm drains. Some Central Indiana organizations even offer matching funds to sup34

port such efforts. For lawn and garden purposes, he urges homeowners to lean toward the use of native perennials like purple coneflowers and Prairie Blazingstar to encourage pollination. “We tend to use those on almost any site that gets sun,” he explains. “On our first few installs last year, bees and butterflies were buzzing around those plants before we’d even gotten them in the ground.” To attract and feed Monarch butterflies, Painton recommends planting butterfly weed; he also cites Red Twig Dogwood, Prairie Dropseed, switchgrass, Oakleaf Hydrangea, oak sedge, and serviceberry shrubs as examples of other native species that thrive in our growing zone. Another bonus of using

native varieties? Low maintenance. “Once you’ve gotten native plants established after the first year or two, they pretty much do their own thing, saving you the time and money of upkeep,” he explains. Painton notes there’s a common misconception that sustainable landscaping just means letting your yard grow wild and messy. Not true, he says. “You can focus on sustainability and still create a formal, styled landscape,” he assures. “Native plants offer instant impact when they’re blooming, and they look attractive year-round, so you can plan for seasonal interest. Nature has an inherent way of making sure there’s something beautiful happening all year long.”

ASS-PRODUCED dining tables and

cookie-cutter chairs may appeal to some consumers, but that’s not what Purposeful Design delivers. David Palmer launched the faithbased, not-for-profit organization in 2013 after seeing a need to create employment options for men in recovery from the throes of addiction and homelessness. “David was going to Wheeler Mission and praying with these men, and over and over, he kept hearing them say how much they wanted jobs,” says Margaret Carter, sales director for Purposeful Design. Palmer brainstormed with some fellow College Park Church members, and the idea to put these men to work and teach them a useful trade was born. The first Purposeful Design 36

products were constructed from pallet wood within the confines of a small church workshop. As word spread about the group’s mission, a number of local sources pitched in to provide wood, supplies, and materials. “We hire men mainly through our partnership with Wheeler Mission, but not exclusively,” Carter says. “Any prospective hires go through an interview process so we can make sure they’re clean, sober, and ready to work.” Purposeful Design’s slogan is “Rebuilding lives. Building furniture.” The company currently employs about a dozen men, several who’ve been with the program since its founding. A typical workday includes furniture production and skilled training, but also prayer time, Bible study, counseling, and mentorship connections. “We’ve also started our own School of Woodworking and Discipleship,” Carter notes. “It’s a volunteer-led, three-week class that focuses on woodworking skills, job readiness, and Photography by TONY VALAINIS

discipleship. Of those who’ve attended our five graduating classes so far, 90 percent have gone on to land jobs.” The furniture itself is custom-made using wood and metal, and ranges from simple planter boxes and bookshelves to elaborate sliding doors made from reclaimed barn wood and massive woodslab dining tables. Some projects also incorporate technology and lighting features, cement, marble and stone; most take six to eight weeks to complete. From its humble beginnings, the company has blossomed, recently moving into a new 28,000-square-foot production facility with an open-to-the-public showroom. It claims Eli Lilly and Company, Notre Dame, the Indianapolis Colts, and

Purposeful Design works closely with local furniture dealers, architects, and design firms, but word-of-mouth testimonials and social networking have gone a long way to increase business. Interior designer Deanna Whetstone, principal of Whetstone & Associates, learned about the organization when she saw it featured on a local news broadcast and thought the products would be a good fit for one of her projects. “I like the fact that they help individuals identify their talent and show them God has a bigger plan for them,” she says. “I’m a big fan of second chances and the idea that our mistakes don’t have to continue to define us.” Whetstone has since ordered large conference tables for commercial entities, as well as custom beds and walls for residential use. “Purposeful Design matches the same values I want to provide for my clients and produces creative, custom products of the highest quality,” she says. With space in its new digs to accommodate up to 50 craftsmen, Palmer and his staff are hoping for more business, more growth, and more opportunities to help men turn their lives around. “We keep praying to find out what God wants us to do next,” Carter says. “Jesus was a carpenter, after all.

we usually head the bathroom. It’s the first and the last space in our homes where we spend time every day. “Bathrooms are a central hub of the home,” says Sarah Hallenbeck, project manager and interior designer at Victory Surfaces. “It’s your personal sanctuary where you wash off the day and get ready in the morning for your next adventure. Having that personal retreat from the world is hugely impactful; the performance and look of your bathroom can make or break how you feel about your home.” Making the most of this often-unsung workhorse of a room all boils down to matters of personal taste, need, and budget. Above all other factors, though, functionality reigns supreme, especially if you’re considering taking on any renovations, upgrades, or improvements. “This isn’t a room where people entertain, so it can be deeply suited to individual needs and/ or desires,” says Shannon Roark, architectural sales specialist for Architectural Brick & Tile. “A bathroom has to function, otherwise the homeowner has just wasted time and money.”

“Function and design have to play well together in order to create the ultimate bath oasis.”


IM HOME | 2019

Today’s most popular bathroom features and products manage to marry convenience and aesthetics to meet the demands of busy, modern lifestyles and families. “Function and design have to play well together in order to create the ultimate bath oasis,” explains Mary Wright, sales and design associate at Economy Plumbing Supply. “Function has to be easy and user-friendly for the client, but without sacrificing design. The homeowner needs to be able to see how beauty translates to function for the two aspects to coexist.” Here, our Central Indiana industry experts weigh in on some of the latest bathroom trends and point out what to look for in the future.

FARMHOUSE CHIC When fashion and lifestyle blogger Beth Chappo and her husband planned their new house, built by Christopher Scott Homes, they wanted the master bath to evoke the atmosphere of a private spa. Dubbed the “Modern Farmhouse Bathroom” on her Seersucker + Saddles site, the spacious retreat is “a place John and I thoroughly enjoy daily,” Chappo posts. A large steam shower and deep clawfoot tub provide attractive spots for pampering. But the linear, hexagonal wall tiles, shown to her by Ashley Bedwell of Rowland Design, steal the show on the walls behind the vanity, surrounding the tub, and in the shower. The light-colored cabinetry designed by Shannon Poe of Chateau Kitchens contrasts with the tile without stealing attention from the graphic pattern. And all is accented with gold-toned hardware and plumbing and light fixtures that tie the look together and add an element of luxury. We haven’t even mentioned the best part yet. In a space that would traditionally be used as a linen closet, the Chappos decided to add a decadent convenience: a wine fridge. The chiller, which is a favorite component of the room, is tucked neatly into a night kitchen that includes a microwave and reverse osmosis water-filtration system. Having a selection of reds and whites readily available for soaking with a good book or having a nightcap before bed contributes to an overall sense of ease and relaxation. Cheers!

“Some people want to explore a modern, clean vibe in the bathroom, while the rest of the house may seem more traditional or transitional.”

MARKET WATCH Trends sometimes take a little bit of time to filter across into the traditionally conservative Midwest region from the more cutting-edge east and west coasts. However, when it comes to bathrooms, Central Indiana appears to be keeping pretty close pace to its larger metropolitan counterparts, thanks to innovative designers who pride themselves on staying current and well-informed. And they pass that knowledge on to clients to create opportunities to pursue bolder design. “Some people want to explore a modern, clean vibe in the bathroom, while the rest of the house may seem more traditional or transitional,” Roark says. “That’s what’s so great about design in the last decade or so—the rules are loosening up and people are having much more fun designing their bathrooms.” “The Midwest is right on target for all of the desirable features such as tile, walk-in showers, and extra amenities like towel warmers and lighted mirrors that create a high-fashion design,” Wright adds.


IM HOME | 2019

SIZE MATTERS Of-the-moment consumer inclinations toward largerscale tile and flooring products help create the optical illusion of space, which in turn helps make smaller bathrooms feel larger and more open than they actually are. “Large-format porcelain tiles are great for showers,” Roark says. “This slab look makes for a stylish and practical shower since there are few, if any, grout lines.” Working to reduce or eliminate obvious seams in floors and tiling eases the pains of maintenance and cleaning for homeowners. Roark also mentions that installing larger rectangular tile on shower walls vertically—as opposed to horizontally—in a staggered or stacked pattern is an effective way to draw the eye up and out. “Long, linear tiles in sizes from 4-inch x 12-inch to 8-inch x 48-inch and greater are extremely popular,” he adds. Porcelain and natural stone are still the modern materials of choice for many homeowners, offering an appealing combination of durability and timeless beauty.

NEUTRAL TERRITORY You might think you’re seeing double when you step inside the master suite of this northwestside home that’s a stone’s throw away from Holliday Park. The identical his-and-hers bathrooms, renovated by WrightWorks, mirror each other on opposite sides of a common wall. Cabinetry designer Nate Slabagh of Nathan Alan Design collaborated with Matt Harris of MW Harris to give the clients plenty of storage in the sleek, high-gloss acrylic cabinets. The square Lacava semi-recessed sinks punctuate the long, quartz countertops and add a geometric accent. Horizontal tile and bench seats in the showers supplement the overall earthy color scheme of tans, browns, creams, and grays, maintaining perfect harmony in both spaces.

s the most sizable pieces in the room, freestanding bathtubs with separate curb-less showers go a long way toward evoking a sense of spa-like sanctuary in many modern bathroom design plans, sometimes with separate drying-off areas that incorporate seating, hooks for hanging up robes, and clever use of cubbies to hold a selection of towels and toiletries. “ThermoMasseur baths with heated back rests and air jets coupled with water offer the ultimate relaxation, creating water movement that flows up the spine and cascades over the shoulder blades to pull stress away from the body,” Wright adds by way of support for the bathroomas-spa-retreat concept. Wright mentions that the practice of transforming dressers or other large-scale furniture pieces into statement vanities continues to remain strong, while Hallenbeck notes she’s seeing a lot of wall-to-wall shower niches, inset lighting, and high-contrast monochromatic materials with pops of color for accent purposes.

NATURE CALLS The great outdoors makes an appearance inside this Zionsville home that takes advantage of houseplant-friendly humidity in the master bath. The lush, tropical-looking space, designed and remodeled by Nancy and Jennifer Mince of Mince Kitchen & Bath Design with the help of DGC Contracting, features a variety of tile from the Tile Shop that mimics the appearance of river rocks, tree bark, craggy hillsides, and mossy trails. The end result feels like a hike in the woods, complete with waterfall effects from the faucets above the freestanding tub and leaf-shaped sinks, all of which came from Plumbers Supply. Because the bathroom is situated above the garage, heated flooring was installed to prevent chilly feet. The towel bars are heated to provide extra comfort.

ocal experts agree that textures and patterns are hot right now for bathroom design— especially on accent walls—in startling shades and juxtaposing finishes for a yin/yang final result. “Mixing honed and polished finishes within hard surfaces such as stone and tile can be a nice way to create some playfulness, even in a sophisticated room,” Hallenbeck says. “Alternatively, honing an otherwise proper stone makes it feel a little more informal.” “Cement finishes are huge; the breadth of offering runs from refined to salted and aged,” Roark adds. Natalie Gertiser, Ferguson’s Carmel showroom manager, calls out integrated LED mirrors, minimalist details that show off clean lines, and industrial-style faucets as some of the most-requested client asks she’s receiving, as well as hardware in shades of matte black, chrome, and brushed gold. “Minimal design looks really nice, but you need to be able to utilize all the storage you can get,” she says. “The same goes for lighting; you want to make sure you have ample lighting in a bathroom. If you only have sconce lighting around the vanity area, you’ll need to add some ceiling lighting as well.”

athrooms require a lot of containment, and finding a place to put everything can be a common challenge in many homes. “We’re always trying to find creative ways to incorporate more storage or product-specific storage,” Hallenbeck says. “There are narrow cabinet pull-outs specifically made for storing tall cans of hairspray upright. Or, if a standard cabinet drawer depth is wasting space, there are sliding insets that can better utilize narrow, vertical storage for make-up and jewelry.” Wright mentions homeowners love the idea of creating unique space-saving solutions—for instance, built-in electrical outlets in cabinet drawers where blow dryers and curling irons can be stashed.

JACKPOT! Inpired by hotels in Las Vegas, the owner of this waterfront Cicero property turned to Dawn Wattles of Cabinetry Ideas to make her bathroom dreams a reality. Wattles collaborated with Bob Donaldson of G.R. Donaldson and Peter Whitten of Kittle’s Design Studio to reimagine the bath area that includes a glassed-in European wet room enclosure for the tub and shower. A formal look is achieved in the classic styling of the custom-made double vanity built by Greenfield Cabinetry with surface material from Cathedral Marble & Granite. The sconces and curved mirrors add an air of elegance. Along with the x-shaped bins for handy towel storage, the light-gray cabinetry features a special armoire for a stackable washer and dryer, keeping all the laundry on the upper floor of the house.

“We’re always trying to find creative ways to incorporate more storage or productspecific storage.”



long with kitchens, bathroom renovations and updates are some of the most significant projects homeowners can undertake to add value to their dwellings, although it’s important to maintain a degree of neutrality if you’re entertaining thoughts of selling your house anytime soon. “If homeowners are planning to sell in the near future, I try to remind them about the general expectations new homeowners tend to have,” Roark says. “If the answer is no, then the freedom to suit the bathroom to their specific taste

can take a larger, more creative turn. It’s the designer’s role to discuss the pros and cons of all the choices. Our process often begins with a piece or a material that inspires the client—a decorative mosaic, for example. Then, we can create a highly functional bathroom around that.” Universal bathroom design features that increase accommodation and accessibility can also come into play if the homeowner plans on aging in place, although Remodeling Magazine’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report indicates more favorable returns on investment in upscale than mid-range market projects. 2019 | IM HOME



verall home trends appear to be moving in the direction of ecoconscious features and materials, and bathrooms are no exception. But Gertiser says the depth of the dive can depend heavily on the client and the budget.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT “A small percentage would prefer to focus on design as opposed to how long the features will last, but most want a nice design that also incorporates function and sustainability,” she says. “The great thing about tile is that its origins are environmentally friendly based on natural ingredients such as

clay, sand, feldspar, and water,” Roark adds. “And, it doesn’t require toxic chemicals to clean. It feels good to know that our industry claims many manufacturers who are dedicated to meeting sustainability guidelines and taking advantage of reclaimed materials like tile and glass.”

Customers can test out the flow of water from various showerheads and faucets at Economy Plumbing Supply.

FUTURE PERFECT new generation of smart products. “Smart toilets offer a combination of heated washlet seats that self-clean,” Wright says. “Additionally, the current environment already offers LEDlighted mirrors that connect to WiFi,

which allows the user to perform tasks while listening to their favorite playlists. Steam showers can now also offer controls that generate a healthy steam experience paired with audio technology and light therapy.”

SUIT YOURSELF If you have the eye and the right resources, you can take the DIY route with your homeimprovement projects. Local boutique owner Adam Hampton of Hampton Designs Studio & Shop made over most of the bathrooms in his lodge-style Wanamaker house. Built in 1990, the place was due for some updates when he bought it in 2017. Many items were ordered online to create the overall black-and-white color scheme, but tiles were purchased locally at the Tile Shop. He also took an existing clawfoot tub and gave it an upgraded style and lease on life by having it painted black and silver by Suzette’s Tub Saver. The result is a dramatic centerpiece that looks brand new.

After launching a handful of Indy’s hottest restaurants, a local dining-scene duo dished up plans for a Greenwood hideaway catered to their specific tastes and interests.


2019 | IM HOME



D AND SASATORN RUDISELL’S residence makes a striking impression sitting on the apex of a cul-de-sac in Greenwood’s Calvert Farms development. A large double door flanked by a pair of two-car garages that mirror each other makes it clear from the street that this isn’t your typical suburban home. Ed says he suspects the neighbors wonder about the interior. “We’ve gotten a lot of looks,” say Ed, whose copious tattoos and metalhead aesthetic suggest he isn’t the type to worry about a sideways glance from passers-by. It’s no surprise that the proprietors of some of downtown Indy’s prime spots for food and drink—Black Market, Rook, Siam Square, and The Inferno Room—have a distinctive dwelling. Nestled on a sloped lot and designed around an outdoor courtyard, the home manages to achieve a feeling of privacy while also beckoning in natural light. Situated not far from the neighborhood where Ed grew up, the home


IM HOME | 2019

is custom built and designed to suit the restaurateurs’ tastes and lifestyle. “We needed a fast vein into the city,” Ed says. “But we wanted to do an interesting home.” The unique abode was constructed by Greenwood-based Rick Campbell Builder. Interior designer Nikki Sutton of Indianapolis-based LEVEL Interior Architecture + Design oversaw every aspect of the inside, from window placement to the textile and furniture choices. The collaboration with Sutton was the natural outgrowth of her work on the Rudisells’ businesses. “She’s built three restaurants for us,” Ed says. “She knows how I move. She knows what’s realistic.” Besides making a statement with the exterior, Sutton says the couple made daring choices in terms of materials and space allocation. The home also features eye-catching lighting fixtures, personally meaningful artwork, and injections of color and pattern throughout.

“They are some of the boldest clients I’ve ever worked with.” —NIKKI SUTTON, LEVEL INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN

The exterior structure of the Rudisells’ home forms a letter H, with bedroom suites on one side and living areas on the other—including the combined great room and kitchen at right—all separated by an entry hall in the middle.

2019 | IM HOME


WHILE PLANNING THE FOOTPRINT of their dwelling, the couple was inspired by their love for Italy and homes designed around private courtyards, like those found more commonly in European cities. The unusual layout of the house, its placement on the lot, and the structural design were done by Craig McCormick at Blackline Studio, where Sutton worked when the project began. Ed and Sasatorn settled on a floorplan that looks like an “H” from above, with a three-sided, shielded outdoor space open to the back of the property. One leg of the H is dedicated to personal quarters—two bedroom suites and a laundry room—and the other leg to the common spots, including a connected living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as a basement hangout and gym.

“Designing your own home can enhance the things you like to do.” “We’re pretty private people at home because we’re so social at work,” says Ed, offering a tour while sipping a glass of red from a collection that will soon fill the wine cellar nestled under the basement stairs. Privacy and natural light were big priorities for the couple, and the design of home miraculously manages to embody both with its placement of large windows overlooking the backyard and rear of the home, along with transom windows above the bathroom vanities in each of the two bed chambers. The foyer and dining and living rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows that beckon the sun. “Sunsets are pretty awe-inspiring here,” says Ed, referring to the window above the sink off his professionally appointed kitchen, where they occasionally host small get-togethers. The master bedroom on the second floor and the guest bedroom on the ground level were built like hotel suites, and the light-filled gathering places create a vibe that is spacious, upscale, and uncluttered. “I wanted it to feel like a vacation house,” Ed says. They chose a style that balances between contemporary and classic, with touches throughout the home that nod

The entry into the home has been dubbed the “Sephora Room” because its black-and-white striped table and fuchsia chairs mimic the cosmetics stores’ signature color scheme. The adjacent stairwell hosts a special spot for sentimental objects.

Near the home’s entrance, the guest suite features pops of gold and yellow to contrast with the gray furniture and neutral backdrop.

to their shared love of travel, Ed’s enthusiasm for occult art, and Sasatorn’s roots in Thailand. “As far as the style, I know that with their restaurants they tend to design a little more contemporary,” Sutton says. “Since [their house] was going in Greenwood, I thought something more transitional would be appropriate.” Ed mentions that modern homes tend to feel cold to him, and he wanted to experience a sense of warmth when returning from a long day of work. The couple also chose to prioritize living space over bedrooms. “We wanted better utilization of the space, not to have four or five bedrooms just to say we did,” he explains. “It’s functional.” The basement, which has windows and an outdoor patio with walkout access to the courtyard, houses the wine cellar, a wet bar, a sumptuous hangout den with a dark-gray sectional for Ed, and a sleek workout room for Sasatorn. It has two bathrooms, and the one off the fitness area features a cedar sauna. “Designing your own home can enhance the things you like to do and not waste space on the things that don’t matter to you,” Sutton says. The basement could be converted to two additional bedrooms if the pair decided to sell and needed the number of bedrooms to better reflect the square footage. But after eight months spent building their dream home, the couple isn’t ready to move any time soon.

DESPITE THE DISTINCTIVE ambiance in each of the Rudisells’ restaurants, designing their home started off a bit rocky, according to Sutton. “Every day was a war [early on],” she says with a laugh. “Not so much because he knew what he wanted and she knew what she wanted—they both felt uncomfortable making commitments.” The couple agreed on their desire for a feeling of spaciousness—Sasatorn in particular wanted to avoid creating a residence with a cluttered and cramped vibe—but they could settle on little else in the beginning. Sutton says the turning point occurred when they went to look at materials at Mont Surfaces in Indianapolis. There, she says, she noticed her clients were attracted to materials with an injection of color and fluidity, and that began to guide her in terms of degree they were willing to diverge from classic, conservative choices. “They had one requirement, which was: Do not paint everything white, black, and gray,” she says. Doses of color are infused throughout, from the bright-pink chairs stationed across from the large double front door where the Rudisells sometimes take their morning coffee, to the sultry forest-green velvet chairs in the library area of the basement where Ed records his “Shift Drink” podcast. Rich navy-blue upholstered chairs surround the dining table, and daffodil-yellow tile makes the first-floor laundry room a cheery space for chores. Movement is achieved through pieces like the bold granite backsplashes behind the kitchen stove and the downstairs wet bar.

“They had one requirement: Do not paint everything white, black, and gray.”

The lower-level lounge showcases collections of rum, reading material, and tiki mugs, with a Ralph Steadman sketch of Hunter S. Thompson hanging alongside the bookshelves.

The honey-blond woodwork creates a unifying color repetition throughout the home—from Sasatorn’s custom closet and Ed’s Japanese soaking tub on the second floor, down to the ceiling beams in the kitchen and main living area and bookshelves in the basement.

“This is one of the first houses I’ve done where it doesn’t have a general flow… not everything coordinates from area to area to area. It’s a little old-fashioned in that each zone has its own aesthetic,” says Sutton. Yet the home doesn’t feel disjointed. Each room seems designed for its purpose and reflective of the couple’s particular passions. Although Ed is not a chef, his kitchen is designed for one, with a professional six-burner stove, a convection oven, and a wine fridge. Custom black cabinets


IM HOME | 2019

and a pantry tucked behind the cooking area hide the appliances and create a sleek and modern vibe. Sasatorn’s pride is her capacious closet upstairs, which looks like it belongs in a luxury clothing store with its chandelier and feminine pendant fixtures, custom drawers, racks, and cabinets that display her collection of purses and Hermès scarves. “I wanted it to look like a boutique,” Sasatorn says. Ed has a smaller, less grandiose closet containing black band-logo tees and a collection of Hawaiian

shirts. His closet leads to the master bedroom, which features the “most contentious point in the house,� a large soaking tub Ed insisted on adding. The vessel abuts a large window with a retractable curtain overlooking a stand of pine trees. He jokes about his neighbors seeing him on the rare occasions he uses it. The austere master bedroom, painted a subdued mauve, otherwise contains only a bed flanked by two mirrored nightstands. The master bath connects to the bedroom seamlessly, featuring a spacious walk-in

shower and a long vanity with double sinks and a lighted makeup mirror in between. A toilet room is situated at the very end of a unique, delicately patterned gray-and-white tiled floor designed to look like an intricately woven rug. Theoretically, the couple has everything they need to stay cloistered in their sanctuary upstairs. A small bar with a fridge and a coffee station is a hotel-like convenience that saves them from going downstairs in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning.

BECAUSE OF THE ABUNDANCE of windows and soaring ceiling with wood beams, the space for artwork is limited in the open living, dining, and kitchen area. But a colorful, large-scale portrait of the writer Charles Bukowski and a Pop Art painting of a rhinoceros on a fire-engine-red background draw the eye, as do a pair of gold-and-glass chandeliers with Art Deco–like silhouettes above the dining table. After work, Ed can listen to vinyl on his Technics record player and recline on an extra-long gray sectional chosen to accommodate his 6'2" frame. He can turn on a gas fireplace with a quirky installation that makes it appear that human skulls are burning within the firebox. The skulls are a nod to Ed’s interest in occult art and iconography. On the other side of the fireplace is a sunroom with floor-toceiling windows that can be accessed through the dining room. The bright enclave serves as a home base for Padma, a 10-yearold greenwing macaw who loves “dancing” to hip-hop and showing off for guests with her imitation of Sasatorn’s weight lifting. When not in her cage, Padma enjoys a custom-made perch in the living area or a ride around on Ed’s arm. The home contains Easter eggs, such as the artificial agave plants standing sentinel beside the front door, for the homeowners and guests in the know. “These little things are just for us, like inside jokes,” Ed says. The space under the stairs leading to the second floor became a tiered display for memorabilia, decorative vases, and tchotchkes, including family photos and the ashes of their beloved late dog, Gypsy. A powder room near the kitchen gives off a Mediterranean vibe, with its patterned tile and mirror framed by pieces of broken glass, and contains one of several paintings by Thai artists selected by Sasatorn. Ed’s library and lounge, which houses his sizable collection of rum, also gives display to Muppets and tiki memorabilia, instruments, and books on topics that include cooking and spirits. “This house makes me lazy,” says Ed, despite being in the middle of a grueling stint of working 12-hour days at his restaurants with no end in sight. “I don’t want to leave.”

“This house makes me lazy. I don’t want to leave.”


IM HOME | 2019

Padma was originally intended to be Sasatorn’s pet, but the playful, entertaining macaw developed a rapport as Ed’s trusty sidekick.

The overhead lights in the great room can be programmed to any color on the spectrum, casting different moods and effects on the furniture and art.
