Going Green IF YOU’VE SPENT ANY TIME ON
Pinterest, you’ve likely seen lush corners of uber-cool homes spilling over with greenery. Inspired, you stopped by the local nursery and picked up a plant or two, only to find a few months (or even weeks) later that it had turned into a brown crumbling fern or shriveled succulent. We’ve all been there. I, for one, never asked for the plant life. The plant life was thrust on me when someone gave my boyfriend a potted aloe vera. He set it in the middle of his shady apartment, and it promptly began to grow at a 90-degree angle. After doing some research, I repotted it, insisted that he find a way to put it near a window, and took over the watering regimen. Its withered tips plumped up, and new leaves sprouted straight up. Over time, my confidence grew, as did my collection of plants. Yours can, too. With the right tools and a little common sense (which we try to provide on page 32), anyone can have a green thumb. Well, almost anyone. A plant’s survival mostly depends on light, and if your home just doesn’t have the right amount, you may have to look elsewhere for stylish home décor. Good thing we’ve got you covered on that end, too. Check out some of our favorite trends this year, starting on page 12. Personally, I love the array of items decked out in Pantone’s Color of the Year, ultraviolet. Then, peek inside some of the chicest homes in the city. One couple filled their condo’s shared workspace with tons of cool art and custom pieces (p. 20). Another family, inspired by their crosscountry travel, built an extremely modern, minimalist home in Zionsville (p. 40). The home uses materials and design ideas from coast to coast, and its expansive windows make the surrounding fields and forests the star of the home. Regardless of what you’re drawn to, I hope you find inspiration in these pages. It’s spring! Throw out that dingy couch you’ve had for 15 years. Paint the living room a new color. And—gosh darn it—keep trying to grow those houseplants.

Downtown homeowners, Curt and Carolyn Schmidt, are both art enthusiasts and commissioned this statement piece by local studio Blice Edwards. The pink neon and rusty letters juxtapose the feminine and masculine.
They commissioned Carolyn’s brother, Bob Taylor Sculptures, to create this metal piece named “C and C.” It features a large “C” inset with a smaller one, standing for the couple’s initials.
The Schmidts knew they wanted modern design, but Carolyn (who says she she isn’t a very serious person) also wanted playful things. The custom colorful pillows were a perfect match
Balancing Act THIS COUPLE’S SHARED WORKSPACE IN THEIR DOWNTOWN CONDO DOES A LOT OF MULTITASKING.
IM HOME | 2018
by Summer Daily
Modern paintings by local artist Jason Zickler were hanging in the model condo when Curt and Carolyn toured it. They fell in love with his work and bought a piece for their own home.
WHEN CURT AND CAROLYN SCHMIDT FIRST
saw this downtown condo with floor-to-ceiling windows, they knew it was the one. The couple, who had lived in a beautiful but very traditional suburban home for years, were ready for a change, and if they were moving to the city, they wanted to do it right. With the building’s modern architecture, stunning views of downtown Indianapolis, and—again—those floor-to-ceiling windows, this condo oozed with sophisticated urban vibes. Of course, moving from the suburbs to a highrise requires some downsizing, and while homeowners often have rooms dedicated to specific uses, apartment dwellers need them to pull double duty. This space primarily functions as the couple’s office, but it’s also a cozy den where they can cuddle up with a good book or watch a show on the TV mounted above the intricate Alfonso Marina cabinet. The Schmidts turned to Rowland Design for interior design work, and the team created a space inspired by juxtaposition. Two Blu Dot desks (one red, one black) sit edge to edge. Feminine textures are balanced by masculine ones. The space makes modern décor feel homey. Most homeowners might cringe at the idea of sharing an office, but Curt and Carolyn feel perfectly at home in this space. Plus, although it juggles a variety of themes and ideas, it’s anything but traditional. n
Another small sclupture by Carolyn’s brother sits next to a collection of horsehair vases made by her 83-year-old mother who began throwing pottery in retirement.

Susan Yeley’s husband, Brian, and her three children don’t mind the smaller backyard if it means more space inside.
Mod Squad A STUDIO ADDITION GIVES THIS INTERIOR DESIGNER SOME MUCH-NEEDED SPACE AND FRESHENS HER 1960S SPLIT-LEVEL HOME.
by Bailey Briscoe
SUSAN YELEY IS THE FIRST TO ADMIT SHE’S great when it comes to spicing up the inside of a house, but she’s at a loss when it comes to gardens and lawns. “I’m a designer, not a landscaper,” she says. So what is a designer to do when she gets fed up with her unruly outdoor scenery? Susan’s answer was to add more house to cover it up. Well, that was one reason. As much as she hated having a large lawn and little landscape inspiration, there was a more practical reason Susan and her husband Brian added over 1,000-square-feet to their 1960’s split-level home in Bloomington.
IM HOME | 2018
Susan’s design business, Susan Yeley Interiors, was quickly outgrowing its bedroom-sized quarters on the upper floor of the Yeley residence. Susan, her three employees, and their design “stuff” previously occupied one of the home’s four bedrooms, meaning two of her three children were bunking together. There wasn’t enough space for her kids—or her business—to grow. Even the dog agreed that Susan needed a new work space. So in June 2016, they broke ground on the studio addition that would give them a real office space, an additional family area, two more full-baths, and a walk-in closet to boot.
As Seen on the Internet To get inspiration for client projects, Susan is constantly flipping through stacks of home décor magazines and falling down the Pinterest-shaped hole full of shiplap and gallery wall how-tos. But as a designer of other people’s spaces, she doesn’t always get to execute what she likes. “A lot of this project was me doing what I’ve seen and haven’t been able to do for a client,” Susan says, pointing to the linear drain in the ensuite bath on the second floor of the addition, which allows the slate gray tile to seamlessly cover the bathroom and shower floor. Light wood accents, a freestanding tub, skylights, and high windows finish out the mostly white-washed, clean-lined space. Also upstairs, an expansive walk-in closet doubles as a rec room and storage locker. Jutting out over the ground-floor of the addition, the closet offers a genius way to hide the HVAC system.
In the original great room (above) and kitchen (right) the Yeleys embraced the warmer colors and midcentury modern vibe of the 1960s home.
IM HOME | 2018
In addition to more office space, the Yeleys added a master bath on the second floor as well. Susan combined modern elements like the bare bulb vanity lights (top) with warm accents like the photo collage displaying favorite memories (bottom).
Putting Up Walls The Yeleys added directly onto the back, left side of their home, creating an L-shaped floorplan. A few steps lead from the kitchen down into the family room, which used to be the extent of the space. Now, the family room leads into a vestibule where the Yeleys added a full bath. Just down 26

the hall from the bathroom, the room expands into brand-new living and working quarters. Light spills into Susan’s work space through a wall of westwardfacing windows comprised of varying sizes of rectangles. By installing windows on the south wall, too, a faux corner window was created for less. Putting up new walls meant Susan was able to create a “starkly modern”
space, something she will never be able to do in the original section of their 1960s-era home. “I love so many different styles but don’t have more than one home,” she says. “I needed to do something different but cohesive.” By matching the wall, ceiling, and trim in the same white hue, skipping the trim around the windows, and adding a simple baseboard, Susan contrasted the warmth of the rest of her home with a fresh look. A concrete floor, poured before the walls even went up, is marked by its exposure to the elements and construction crews. Lofted ceilings soar above the portion of the room where the design magic happens, and a small, cozier section of the room functions as both a family and work space. It features a small kitchenette, a yellow tweed couch Susan bought from a friend in her neighborhood, and a colorful Aztec-inspired rug she found on Ebay. The entire addition is full of pieces like this. Rather than filling the space with expensive artwork and furniture, Susan layered in meaningful mementos she’s acquired throughout her life. A dartboard hangs at a level Susan claims is too high for art, to which Brian argues, “It’s not art;” a framed, hand-written poem gifted to her by her youngest daughter on a day it was needed most completes a gallery wall; and textiles from the family’s trip to Guatemala are sprinkled throughout. In the studio portion, pairs of desks assembled from old closet doors and salvaged Ikea legs line two walls covered with idea boards tacked with sketches. Two rolling desks form a center island. Shelving, drawers, and more cork boards cover the back wall of the room.
Personal Touches Keeping in mind the needs of their family, Susan designed the space to be flexible. Clients enter the office space through a bold red exterior door located off the left side of the home, so they can drop in without trekking through the family’s living space. While the space primarily serves as her office, the frosted-glass door that connects old and new Yeley territory can be locked from the inside, allowing the space to double as an Airbnb or mother-in-law suite. The family frequently accesses the backyard through the new side door and uses the extra bathroom labeled “both” and outfitted with a look-at-me yellow-bordered door. The mostly soundproof room also plays host to many of Brian’s Sunday morning soccer viewing parties and their children’s
Much of the addition’s décor, like the tweed couch bought from a neighbor and the rug found on Ebay (above), isn’t brand new. Both the family and design staff utilize the new full bath (right).

sleepovers. It’s a space designed to be lived in by real people, and people are exactly the reason Susan is in the design business. “People are the real inspiration to me,” she says. “I don’t know anything about you or what you bring to the situation, but that’s so fun to me.” For this job, Susan jokes that she made a fabulous client, while her husband, with his many opinions about their home, was more difficult. But it gives her joy to have created a space the entire family loves, and it’s one that will allow her to continue to be the Manager of All Things Kids and the creative director and owner of Susan Yeley Interiors for many more years to come. n

It’s a Jungle in Here YOUR GUIDE TO GROWING PLANTS THAT WILL SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN YOUR HOME.
FROM AIR PURIFICATION TO amped-up visual appeal, houseplants add a host of benefits to any environment. NASA research shows that houseplants actually cleanse indoor air by filtering out certain chemicals and increasing oxygen and humidity levels. On the therapeutic side, plant owners often derive a sense of personal satisfaction from tending their charges, as well as enjoying an increased sense of wellness just being in the presence of live greenery.
“Plants have a way of making those around them feel more calm, relaxed, and mindful,” says Scott Bardash, marketing director for Allisonville Nursery, Garden & Home. “Generally, when plants are around, people feel more stimulated and are all-around happier. In offices, plants can even serve as living walls that reduce noise and stress levels.” If you’ve been thinking about upping your home’s green factor, what are you waiting for? Let’s get growing. 32

Browse pots, hanging planters, soil and fertilizer, and—of course— lots and lots of house plants at Allisonville Nursery, Garden & Home.
Get Ready The first decision to make when selecting plants for your home is to figure out where you’re going to put them. Pick your spot, and then take a quick survey of the microenvironment. “The single most important consideration is the light level. That’s the primary success factor in growing any plant,” says Toomie Farris, president and CEO of McNamara Florist. “Then, think about the amount of space you have available and what shape and style of plant you prefer.”
“The single most important consideration is the light level. That’s the primary success factor in growing any plant.” toomie farris, president and ceo of mcnamara florist
When staking out your spot, keep in mind that plants don’t take well to extreme temperature swings. Try to avoid positioning them near furnace or air-conditioning vents and exterior doors that open and close frequently. When it comes to determining how much light your plants will get, southern and western facing windows tend to receive bright direct light, and northern and eastern windows tend to receive indirect light. A plant sitting in a window shaded by large trees or on a table in the interior of a room will need to be one that thrives in low light and shady areas. 34

In addition to a large selection of prickly cacti (top), leafy growers, and happy succulents, Grounded Plant & Floral Co. also carries a variety of incense, perfume, and other sweetsmelling home goods (bottom).
Beginner gardeners might struggle with the fiddle-leaf fig tree (far left), which can be a bit picky, while snake plants (top) are nearly impossible to kill. The peace lily (bottom) is another hardy plant that will even bloom year-round in the right conditions.
Get Set Now it’s time to make a trip to the plant store and take a good, long look around to see what appeals to you the most. Philodendron, spathiphyllum (peace lily), dracaena, sansevieria (snake plant), chlorophytum (spider plant), aloe vera, and ferns are all hardy starters that tend to do well in moderate, indirect light. Ficus trees (particularly the fiddle leaf fig variety) are currently hot sellers, and herbs often perform nicely on kitchen windowsills, provided they get a lot of sun. “Succulents and cacti are also very popular right now,” adds Brett Cox, a plant specialist with Sullivan Hardware and Garden. “They do need a high level of light, but they come in a 36

“Whether it’s a f lowering plant, colorful foliage, or a palm tree that reminds you of a special vacation, the most important thing is that you love it.” scott bardash, marketing director for allisonville nursery, garden & home
lot of different varieties with attractive colors and foliage.” When shopping, Farris recommends examining each prospective purchase for vigorous growth, healthy color, and appropriately sized pots to
accommodate the roots. “Plants are sometimes acclimatized to move indoors by spending time in shade houses before they ship to plant stores,” he mentions. “They can be more costly, but are well worth it. Plants shipped straight from highlight fields to stores may be shocked going to lower-light home environments.” Professional staff members at nurseries and garden centers are well versed in their inventories, ready and willing to help customers zero in on the perfect addition to their new green space. “Whether it’s a flowering plant, colorful foliage, or a palm tree that reminds you of a special vacation, the most important thing is that you love it,” Bardash assures. “Don’t be scared to pick something because it requires a little more care or because you’ve killed a plant in the past. We can find something that will fit your needs.”
Grow! Once you get your new plant home, you’ll need to figure out how much water it needs to stay healthy. Water too much and the roots will rot, too little and your plants will wither. Make sure all plant pots have drainage holes in the bottom and drip trays underneath to catch any run-off. An easy way to judge whether it’s time to water or not is to stick your finger down two inches into the soil. If it feels dry, it’s probably a good idea to give your plants a drink. Alternately, pick up
smaller pots right after watering to test how heavy they are when fully hydrated, then compare a few days later to see how much they’ve lightened up. For gadget fans, an inexpensive moisture meter provides instant feedback on how dry the soil is, removing all guesswork about when to water. What you water with is just as important as how often. Bottled or filtered water that’s free of chemicals and added salt is usually better for your plants than tap or softened water. You may be eager to repot your new plant as soon as you get it home, but the experts recommend leaving your plant in the pot you bought it in to minimize stress until it acclimates to its new surroundings.
“Generally, plants don’t need to be repotted more often than every six to 12 months, and you should only move up a size that’s an inch bigger in diameter than the old pot,” Cox explains. “It’s like kids and shoes; when their toes started getting tight, then you know it’s time to move up to the next size.” If you plan to transfer your plants to an outdoor location for the summer, ease them into the transition by taking them out for a few hours of sunlight for a week or two and bringing them back inside at night. And don’t forget to change the soil at the end of the season when you bring plants back in to keep any nesting bugs outside where they belong. n
Sullivan Hardware and Garden supports a number of local growers, so you’re guaranteed to find healthy, thriving plants at their indoor garden center.

N AIRSTREAM TRAVEL TRAILER might not seem like an obvious inspiration for a new house. but one zionsville family used their roving habitat as a starting point for their dream home on 20 acres of land.
Pull up to the home, dubbed Copperwood by owners Kevin and Rachelle Swan, and the first thing you might notice is the sleek and shiny Airstream parked to the west of the modern, wood-covered dwelling. The similarities aren’t obvious on the exterior, save for the cool lines and rectangular shapes. But the interior’s open, flowing spaces, and copious natural light prove that a traveling caravan can, in fact, translate into a permanent home. The original Airstream is now a convenient extension of the home, serving as a spare bedroom for guests or a getaway vehicle for family trips. “We wanted the Airstream to be incorporated as sort of a bedroom, to feel like we are camping,” Kevin says. “It’s not a typical Indiana house.” The Swans worked with Christopher Short, owner of Haus, Architecture For Modern Lifestyles, to design and build the home. Derek Mills served as the project’s construction manager. The couple met Short when Kevin photographed Short’s wedding a decade ago. At the time, the Swans were living in a Zionsville neighborhood. It was nice enough, even though the neighborhood association liked to send letters whenever the Airstream was parked at the home.
IM HOME | 2018
The genius of this perfectly modern Zionsville home—designed by Christopher Short for homeowners Rachelle and Kevin Swan— was driven by the open-road-like freedom of a 20-acre lot and the spirit of wanderlust as embodied by the couple’s Airstream Travel Trailer, which doubles as a spare bedroom. Below, early sketches of the project.
IM HOME | 2018
Copper-colored glass tile that lines the pantry wall of the kitchen stands as a subtle homage to a home the owners call Cooperwood.
They started looking for land and found the 20-acre plot in rural Zionsville about six years ago. The couple thought they had found the perfect spot with an open field, wetlands, and mature trees. The finances weren’t there, though, and another buyer grabbed it. “I had still dreamed about this land,” Rachelle says. “I felt so much peace on it. And I thought, ‘That’s fine. I have to let it go.’ But there are few places where you drive up the first time and it feels like home. That’s how it felt.” Other forces were at work. The buyer happened to be a friend of a friend, and a few years later, decided to sell. Texts and emails ensued, a deal was made, and the Swans had the land. Before building, though, the Swans piled their kids into the Airstream and took a six-month trip around the country. They confirmed their love for the minimalist lifestyle and natural settings. They came home and set out to design a house that mimicked the lifestyle, but added a few creature comforts like doors and a full kitchen with room to spread out.
IM HOME | 2018
“There’s style and there’s functionality,” Rachelle says. “As a mom, my must-haves were to be highly efficient with cooking and laundry.” Enter Short. Short’s company did some work on the Swans’ previous home, but the company primarily did whole-house renovations, not new construction. The rapport and trust were there, though, and the Swans asked Short to help them build the home of their dreams. They played around with different ideas, reaching across the nation for the unique building materials necessary for the modern home. Wetlands and an old pipeline running across the property made the home’s location an obvious one, overlooking the trees and shielding the home from outside eyes. The modern work demanded perfection, and Short was committed to giving it. “In a modern house, everything has to be perfect,” Short says. “If something is not perfect, it shows, just because the detailing is more minimal, the trims are more minimal, and the interior is a little sparer. When things aren’t perfect, they show.”
A semicircular gravel drive curves in front of the home, an inauspicious welcome to an abode that is anything but. The single-story, rectangular structure is lined with ash wood that has been thermally treated and left to weather in the elements. Much of the indoor wood is the same, although its natural hues have remained intact while shielded from the outside light and temperature swings. Nearly everything about Copperwood is deliberate, designed to be beautiful and functional while energyefficient. The house faces the south, with an overhang to keep it cool in the summer. In the winter, the sun is low enough to shine through the glass doors with light and heat. A dug-out trench against the front of the home ensures that natural light will flow into the lower level. Look up and see a corrugated metal roof that covers the home’s main living area, mimicking the Airstream and allowing nature’s perfect soundscape during an Indiana rainstorm. The roof is supported by 32-foot treated wood beams that were shipped in from Texas. “A metal roof is very practical,” Short says. “We’ve
actually been doing quite a few metal roofs. The corrugated metal has structural integrity. We used it here because we wanted to see the underside.” Visitors enter the home by crossing a bridge made from composite decking material. Both sides of the living room are lined with large windows, giving the whole area an airy, open feel. The Swans—who own all the land they can see from their home—need not be concerned about privacy. Instead, they can enjoy the feel of living outdoors without constantly being exposed to the Indiana elements. Rachelle and Kevin designed much of the interior, bringing some of their own furnishings and ordering many materials online through Wayfair, Lowes, and local merchants like ICC Floors. Take, for instance, the cork floors that line much of the home. The couple intentionally eschewed carpeting for allergy reasons— even the two cats are hypoallergenic—and instead went with cork floors that provided warmth and durability. “We would order cork samples and test them by dropping things on them,” Kevin says. The interior is simple, based on a palette of gray, white, wood, and black steel. When color is incorporated, it comes in a shade of blue or—in the case of the partial wall dividing the kitchen work area from the living space—copper.

A common bathroom shared by the kids’ bedrooms features simple vanities that jut from the wall, while a judicious splash of blue echoes the big-sky views of the outdoors present throughout the home.
Partial walls are a common theme throughout the home, which features only a few doors. On the main level, the living room and kitchen area bask in the sunlight. (The cats don’t seem to mind the sunlight, either.) Double beams across the ceiling hide the canned lighting and emphasize the home’s natural feel, while a wood-burning stove adds physical and aesthetic warmth. A sink and range are part of an open cooking area, with sleek white KraftMaid cabinets and gray quartz countertops. There’s no fussy pendant lighting in this area. Instead, the couple chose a linear pendant by Stickbulb from Y Lighting to brighten the area. The partial wall separating the kitchen from the prep area and pantry is covered with coppery glass tile, an apt

highlight to a home named Copperwood. The home’s double oven sits behind the partial wall, and the whole area is lined with counters and shelving to keep kitchen prep and cleanup conveniently located out of sight. There is also space carved out for Rachelle’s desk and work area, which allows her to enjoy the view of the land and the couple’s beehives while she’s working. Kevin’s office has been set up in an open room along the other side of the front room area, with an eclectic equilibrium bookcase and a cool blue accent wall adding color and visual interest. The bedrooms extend beyond the living room, one of the few areas in the home that have physical doors. Even so, the master suite features an open hallway leading to the room, which boasts a large picture window looking out over the land and sliding double doors that open to the home’s back porch. The master bed sits against a wood-lined partial wall separating the bedroom from the master bath suite. Blue makes another appearance in the master bath, where a simple white vanity juts out from the wall and a deep tub sits in front of the window. There’s a quiet calmness to the whole area, and the cabinets cooperate. “All of the cabinets and drawers are soft close,” Kevin says. “Sometimes when I am away from home, I forget, and I wind up slamming everything.” The kids’ bedrooms are equally simple, although each child enjoys a door for privacy. They share a bathroom and a large walk-in closet. Both the parents’ and the children’s walk-in closets have their own washer and dryer, making life a lot easier for a busy mom. “I take it from the dryer to the hanger,” Rachelle says.
The master bedroom, above, and bathroom, below, provide picturewindow views and a sense of solitude.

Copperwood’s basement has been designed for durability and fun, and feature a guest space for visiting friends or the couple’s adult children. Soft cork floors line the basement, where Rachelle has carved out a homeschool and learning area for the kids. A warm brown sectional sofa is set up in front of a television for comfortable family movie nights. The dugout lets natural light stream through the windows. The area has been dug out in 30-inch increments, a stair-step pattern that allows the family to enjoy the open space without adding railings for safety. Future plans call for adding boulders to the space, which won’t be difficult, because the property is full of them. Kevin plays competitive table tennis, so it’s not surprising that he dedicated another basement room to his avocation. An automatic

table is set up for practice in the middle of the floor, which is conveniently lined with competition-level flooring to make it easier on the player’s knees and adding a pop of vibrant red to the room. Just off the table-tennis room sits a workout room, outfitted with fitness equipment and a Murphy-style bed for guests. Remember the Airstream? It’s still part of the home, parked on the west side under the metal roof’s overhang. The traveling caravan is loaded and ready for a weekend trip or even to serve as a spare bedroom when family is in town. It’s also a reminder of how a home named Copperwood came to be. What’s in the future? Kevin and Rachelle dream of inviting other Airstream owners to come and enjoy a retreat on the space. Maybe they’ll use the secluded acreage for church retreats or workshops. One thing is certain: There won’t be many homes like Copperwood in the neighborhood. “It’s definitely not a typical Indiana house,” Kevin says. n

“My wife said, ‘This isn’t what you want in a backyard,’” Zelibor recalls. “I told her not to worry. We could make it into what we want.” That is exactly what they did, creating a cozy, comfortable Colorado-inspired paradise that features living, dining, and recreational areas for an intimate evening at home or a gathering of family and friends. “It’s compact, but it’s got a lot going on,” Zelibor says. “We’re out here all the time.”
WHEN BILL AND KIM ZELIBOR FIRST
° BLOSSOMING FRIENDSHIP °
toured their Carmel home eight years ago, they knew it was the perfect place to put down roots. They loved the location. They loved the neighborhood. They loved the corner lot, and they loved the square footage. In fact, the only thing they were less than enthusiastic about was the backyard, which was small and lacked ambiance.
When it came to creating an overall vision for the backyard, Zelibor knew he wanted a fireplace, water feature, and pergola, but despite having a background in landscaping, he didn’t quite know how to bring the elements together in the space. He contacted a number of firms and had plans drawn, but nothing stood out until he contacted Lowell Rolsky of Pro Care Horticultural Services. “I contacted Lowell about doing some work on the patio, and when I showed him some of the designs I had, he asked if he could draw something up for me,” Zelibor

says. “It turned out to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” The design would evolve and change over five years, but with Rolsky by the couple’s side with innovative ideas and solutions, the backyard gradually transformed into the outdoor area of their dreams. Zelibor said Rolsky never shied away from trying something new, even if he’d never done it before. “He’d figure out a way. His ingenuity was unlike anything I’d ever experienced before. Lowell would always tell me we are only limited by two things: my money and his imagination, and his imagination never runs out,” Zelibor says.
° LAYING THE FOUNDATION ° Construction began with the relocation of several large pine trees on the property and pouring the footer for the fireplace and water feature. The following spring, the stonework on both elements was completed using a combination of sandstone, cultured limestone, and a mixture of granite and mica trucked in from Idaho. The pergola was installed next and the result is a stunning outdoor

living space that boasts a closeable roof and can be enjoyed all year-round. Zelibor says the Idaho stone was a challenge because they were looking for something that would accent the sandstone and offer additional color variation on the fireplace and pergola columns. It was heavy, durable, and next-to-impossible to cut, so it required extra time to find the pieces they wanted to remain visible and make sure they fit into the available space. “It was like putting together a puzzle,” Zelibor says. “We would go through the pallets of stone to find the ones we wanted and would put them in a pile by the fireplace. The next day, the crew would come out and say, ‘Uh-oh, they’re at it again!’” Because they live on a corner lot with deep setbacks, the Zelibors were keen to add a bit of privacy to their outdoor space and asked Rolsky to create a gate adjacent to the driveway so guests could access the backyard without going through the house first. Rolsky had some gates from a recent flower and patio show that provided the perfect portal to the swirled, stamped concrete patio, outdoor kitchen, and gathering spaces outfitted with furniture from Wicker Works of Brownsburg. “That was another Pro Care connection,” Zelibor

says. “Lowell told us about them and we went out to their showroom in order to find the perfect pieces for our yard. We were very impressed with what they had to offer.”
° FINISHING TOUCHES ° With the outdoor living room, dining room, and kitchen areas completed, the only space left to consider was a small portion of terrain and a forgotten corner on the northwest corner of the yard. After sodding the space five times and watching the grass die off due to too little light and too much water, Zelibor opted for artificial turf complete with a four-hole putting green from Progreens & Turf in Bluffton. “The turf is great and solves a lot of maintenance issues, but I have to admit, I hate seeing anything on it so I am constantly blowing off any leaves and debris that end up on it,” he said. In the lost corner, they decided on an additional structure complete with a swing and an additional fire feature.
A tranquil sanctuary (top) is tucked away in a once-forgotten corner of the yard. Surrounded by lush treescapes, it’s the perfect place to take a dip in the hot tub (bottom).
“Lowell was jealous that I thought of the fire pit and he didn’t,” Zelibor says. “We really just wanted to add a bit of character to the back corner so that people would be drawn to it. The last thing we added was the hot tub. We didn’t want to go with gunite and we didn’t want to sink it into the ground, but we still wanted it to look built in.” It is a backyard that is further transformed with landscape lighting and plenty of holiday décor at various times of the year. According to Zelibor, it is the place where he and his wife greet local trick-or-treaters at Halloween and it is also fully decked out at Christmas. Rolsky says he is really proud of the space he helped create and that the Zelibors were a joy to work with. “Bill’s background in landscaping made our discussions easier, because he could look at the plans and envision what it might look like off the paper. Not everyone can do that,” he says. It was a collaboration that resulted in a comfortable and cozy space that the Zelibors enjoy whether alone or surrounded by family and friends watching sports on the weekends. “Lowell did a great job of coming up with the best idea for every need,” Zelibor says. “We are thrilled with the result.” n

MICHAEL HORNBECKER NEVER THOUGHT
his dream home would be located in a small town like Lebanon. But after the Washington, D.C.–area native came to central Indiana for a medical residency at St. Vincent, his family decided to settle down. The Hornbeckers initially resided in Zionsville, but when Michael took a job as a primary care doctor at Witham Health Services, it made sense to put down roots nearby.
IM HOME | 2018
“I had always wanted to build a home,” says Michael in the kitchen of his immaculate, airy two-story house on a corner lot in a development just 2 miles from downtown Lebanon. “The nice thing about Lebanon is that it’s growing,” he says. “It’s such a nice place to be, and you can get downtown in 30 or so minutes.” Michael’s wife—who is originally from Toronto— spends about 30 percent of her time traveling for her job at Eli Lilly and Company. When she is away, he shuttles their kids to sports and music classes and takes care of the family’s two friendly dogs, a bichon frisée–poodle mix named Oreo and a coton de tulear–poodle mix named Louie. The active family needed a space that not only accommodated their schedule and lifestyle but also evoked a timeless vibe they could continue to appreciate over time.
The center island in the kitchen (opposite page) incorporates easy-to-clean Cambria quartz countertops. Oak hardwood floors flow into the connected dining room (left) with its subdued palette and stunning coffered ceiling. A cluster of glass-ball pendants illuminates the first-floor powder room (above).
THE PROJECT “I spent so much time planning every aspect of our home,” Michael says. “Now when I walk into it after a long day at work, I feel relaxed.” The Hornbeckers selected Thrine Construction as the builder to create a custom home based on a floor plan Michael had already found online. Part of Thrine’s appeal was the fact that the company does only a few projects each year. “You’ve got to find someone who is going to take their time with you,” Michael says. “I also highly recommend working with someone who works closely with a designer.” Through Thrine, the Hornbeckers connected with Michele Koken, owner of Noblesville-based MB Designs. She started working with the family at the framing stage
of the construction. Michael, who has a passion for interiors, took the lead on choosing elements to make their new custom house into a home. “We didn’t want a cookie-cutter house,” Michael says. “We also didn’t want a humongous space, just a space that was for us.” Things that were important to the Hornbeckers at the outset of the design process included an open plan, a first-floor master suite, an open basement, and play space for their two children. “They wanted a classic, transitional style for their home,” Koken says. “They also wanted it to look great and really jive with their needs as a family.” This included a large kitchen island with comfortable upholstered stools for perching and easy-to-clean Cambria quartz countertops, as well as durable fabrics

and furniture and oak hardwood floors throughout the house. The connected kitchen, dining room, and living area use a soothing palette of soft whites and grays. “A few things may be trendy and unique, but I want it to be timeless,” Koken says. “At five to 10 years, we can still look at pictures of the home and think it’s beautiful.” Enduring elements included the white custom kitchen cabinets, coffered ceilings in the living area, and classic trim details throughout the home. Michael counts the trim and wainscotting as one of his favorite elements of the design. Some of the lighting and accessories add trendy highlights, which can be easily updated as tastes evolve. Koken also points to the herringbone-pattern tile detailing and wall-mounted faucet in the first-floor powder room. 62

E Y E - C AT C H I N G ACCENTS Did the family have to make any compromises during the construction and decorating of the home? Michael says no, but adds that he quickly realized he needed to be more realistic about some of his plans. “Our budget for lighting was way too low,” he says. Indeed, some of the home’s most arresting attributes—and among Michael’s favorites—are the unique lighting fixtures around the home, many of which were sourced from a company called Arteriors. The lighting made some au courant contributions to the classic design, as well. One of the most notable pieces is a 40-inch chandelier made of replica sea glass suspended above the circular dining room table. “The cost of that light equaled our initial lighting budget,” Michael says. “It took an army of people to put it up there.” Because the chandelier is a statement piece, other fixtures and features in the dining area and adjacent kitchen were chosen to serve as a subtle complement without competing for attention. “Not every area is going to be a focal point or it’s going to be visually confusing,” Koken says. “It’s about achieving a balance.” Other eye-catching fixtures include an ethereal and almost sci-fi-looking cluster light in the powder room and a bronze spider lamp with a note of steampunk that hangs in the study where the Hornbeckers’ daughter also practices piano. Koken ordered the one-of-a-kind fixture and had a local contractor modify the flush mount with a chain so the fixture could work with the study’s high ceilings, another nearly ubiquitous feature in the home. A focal point of the living room is a nod to the Hoosier state—a rustic wood fireplace mantel salvaged from a 110-year-old barn in Logansport and a hearth made of Indiana limestone. “I wanted something to have a historical feel,” Michael says. He also wanted a couch that could accommodate his 6-and-half-foot frame and elegant furniture that’s durable
enough to weather the challenges of a busy household with kids and dogs. Large pieces scale with the home’s high ceilings but still maintain the bright, spacious vibe. Other details include custom hand-sewn drapes and artwork sourced from Arteriors and Z Gallerie. “It’s a very calming atmosphere and it has those special features,” Koken says. “You walk in and it’s just a beautiful space.” Another special feature is the double front door. Because the front of the home faces south, Michael’s original plan to commission a solid-wood door would have likely resulted in warping over time. He found a solution from a Georgia company that was able to build a custom door out of composite decking. The material has the look of wood and the durability needed to withstand the sun-saturated front of the home. Completing the first floor is the master suite, which includes a bedroom, bathroom, and closet that doubles as a dressing room. The Hornbeckers plan to remain in their home after their kids leave for college, so having a master suite on the first floor makes sense for the long term.
The master suite opens to a luxurious bathroom (above) with heated floors, a double shower, and a custom vanity.

Luxuries in the master bathroom include heated floors and a heated towel rack, along with a vanity for Michael’s wife, including a custom drawer with holders for her blowdryer and hair irons. A spacious walk-in shower features double shower heads.
FA M I LY S PA C E S For now, the upstairs is the domain of the Hornbeckers’ children, each of whom has his or her own room connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom. Their 12-yearold daughter’s bedroom features a pink and lime-green theme, with a cozy reading nook and elements showcasing her love of music and theater. She wanted to include white boards to express her creativity, so Koken found

embellished green frames to dress up the office-space staple and blend three panels seamlessly into the decor. On the flip side, the couple’s 10-year-old son—a threesport athlete—wanted to highlight his love of Indiana teams in his room. A gray and blue palette offers a muted contrast to his sister’s bright scheme. In order to create a transition between the two spaces, Koken cleverly blended the children’s color choices in the shared shower room. A bold black-and-white-patterned tile floor spans both sides, and the separate vanity areas can each be closed off by a door. In addition to the children’s bedrooms, the upstairs includes a shared recreation area that the family decided to add later in the project-planning process. The upstairs hallway leading to the space takes a jog around the roof line and opens into a cozy retreat with a sectional couch,
television, and even a shared desk along the far wall that can be used as homework space. A large closet houses the children’s toys. “Their family is very tidy. Every time I visit, everything always looks perfect,” Koken says. “We understand that and had storage solutions for the family throughout the house.” In addition to copious storage, the family also had a whole-house vacuum system installed. Small plastic covers that appear to be outlets throughout the house actually conceal retractable hoses that can be connected to vacuum attachments and used for convenient cleanup. Under each of the home’s sinks is also a Dustbuster-like appliance that can be used for spot tidying. The Hornbeckers built their dream home in 2015, but the improvements have been ongoing. Just last summer, contractors put the finishing touches on the outdoor living area, adding a pool and hardscaping for the family to enjoy in the warmer months. Metzger Brothers Construction dug the pool, while BPI Outdoor Living did the hardscaping. A pergola covering a dining area and built-in barbecue set the stage for backyard entertaining or family cookouts. A fire pit with brick seating and outdoor lighting make a cozy setting after dark. Trees, bushes, and grasses installed by landscapers will grow and enhance the privacy of the exterior living space over the years.
LESSONS LEARNED Future plans to complete the Hornbeckers’ already stunning space include finishing the basement that runs the entire footprint of the house. That project will create another area where relatives can stay while visiting from out of town by adding a bedroom and a wet bar. As for lessons learned, both Michael and Koken recommend working with a designer early in the process of custom building and designing a home. “Space planning is a huge part of what I do,” Koken says. “I like being involved from the beginning, even if it’s a custom floor plan. You’re there every step of the way.” Be willing to adjust your budget and expectations. Finding looks, colors, and fixtures you like onsites like Houzz or Pinterest can help your interior designer understand your style and source items for your home. Michael scoured Houzz and shared his ideas with Koken, but also gave her freedom to contribute her creativity and expertise to the process. “They truly trusted me and we vibed well together,” Koken says. “It’s rewarding to see how much they love their home. They’re kind of like dream clients.” It makes sense that the dream client wound up in their dream home. “Our home is open and elegant but very comfortable,” Michael says. “It truly feels like we live at a resort.” n
