Renovate & Refine

Home Sweet Fashionista TIPS FOR RENOVATING AND REFINING DURING AUTUMN ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY JULIE BROWN PATTON

O

ne of the most straight-forward places to start with home makeovers during autumn is the front door.

"Homeowners really are unlimited in the statements they can make through the

appearances of doors. But the majority of people have never bought doors before, so the task can seem daunting," says Mike Rachocki, owner of The Scobis Company, a Chesterfield-based custom wood doors and door hardware company at 137 Chesterfield Industrial Blvd. Scobis teams have been handcrafting doors since 2001.

"We can help with door selections as much as customers would like, and can provide inspiration from different sources," he reassures.

“Ask yourself what the true goal is—if you want to go lighter or warmer, for example— and definitely ask what bothers you most.”

They also offer appliances, tiles, backsplashes, wood floors, lighting designs and closet systems.

Mike says one of the most common factors homeowners are trying to

"Ask yourself what the true goal is—if you want to go lighter or warmer, for example—and definitely ask what bothers you most," she says. Beth says the industrial look is a strong trend, and that many people are seeking cleaner lines and less layering or clutter in rooms. "Redoing a room also can be as simple as switching out the lighting or replacing a table with a different finish," she says. To make space or to exchange items in preparation of upcoming holidays, Encore Consignment Gallery at 287 Lamp & Lantern Village offers a 10,000-square-foot showroom of ever-changing, gently used furniture and home decor items. The shop includes bar stools, living room furniture, dining chairs, dining tables, bedroom furniture, bunk beds, outdoor furniture, entertainment centers, coffee tables, rugs, florals, accessories and wall decor. Encore co-owner Barb Lampe says if only one or two "star" items can be the target of a quick facelift for pizzazz during autumn, she would recommend considering lamps, artwork, candlesticks or a cozy piece that adds a pop of jewel-toned or warm colors of the season.

tyle is not the same as fashion. Indeed, style is more important at Bespoke Apparel, where two generations of haberdashers

are eager to assist men with custom clothing designed to make individual personas come alive. At Bespoke Apparel, stylish menswear reflects quality clothing items that are timeless and unique, not as fleeting as fashion wear tends to be, due to changing trends. "We consider our designs fashion-forward, but more importantly we find ways to accentuate each customer's individuality," says Bespoke partner and stylist Dani Corbitt, who works with her father, David Corbitt, at the tailor shop located at 169 Lamp & Lantern Village. "It's safe for men to choose navy blue suits and white shirts, but we help them become more adventurous in creating their wardrobe. Ninety percent of the time, they are really grateful we expanded their comfort zone," Dani says with a grin. "Men often realize they are in a box and can stay in it, or step outside it. We help them build an inventory for getting to choose when they will do whichever style. It's all about an image." She says she and her father developed and perfected a process for coaching men through new custom clothing choices. "Guys don't feel like they are shopping with us because we first build rapport," she says. "We talk a lot about what type of job they have, where they are heading with their career if they have clients, what type of people they typically deal with and what items may be missing in their existing attire." Most men want someone they trust to guide them through options, she adds. "In certain industries, it's really helpful to send specific messages with clothes," she says. David founded Bespoke Apparel in 1989 in Atlanta with the underlying principle that the correct type of wardrobes can make

"We like to think of it as giving each client the Cary Grant fitting frame." She says they also can bridge professional and personal wardrobes for clients, as well as give tips on how to preserve items. "We have men who get tired of or outgrow their suits before they actually wear out." Regarding this year's fall fashion trends for men, Dani says woven looks will be popular. "Wool ties, silk that looks like wool. In St. Louis, we have a men's fashion flavor all our own. It's a bit traditional, often subdued, but elegant." Other trends for this year, she

Farm Fresh FALL INTO FAMILIAR FOODS ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

about farm fresh items obviously would have high-

lighted the city's iconic Rombach Farm and Pumpkin Patch. Alas, this summer, Rombach family members closed their operations indefinitely. For decades, the

business at 18639 Olive Street Road offered produce, hayrides, children's activities, a country store and lots of photo ops. Through teary eyes, many Chesterfield families will be searching for new pumpkin destinations, ushering in new traditions this year. For starters, farm items are as close as local Dierbergs grocery stores, which carry fresh produce, such as the herbs, vegetables and mushrooms grown by Utterback Farms in Middletown, Mo. For tomatoes, corn, peaches and watermelons, Dierbergs also partners with local farmers, such as Bader Farms, Meyer Family Farm, Ochs Melon Co. and Relleke Farm. Local Schnucks store managers celebrate selling locally grown items from farms and orchards in seven states.

When specifically in the mood for fresh Italian foods, follow the aroma of fresh spices into Viviano's in Chesterfield. The grocery store carries cheeses, olive oils, vinegars, imported prosciutto, artisan-cured meat products, frozen stuffed pastas, house-made lasagna and tiramisu, and

refrigerated, pre-cut dishes. They also have baked goods, such as pizzelle, biscotti, amaretti and sfogliatine. Some West St. Louis County residents like to pick out fresh produce at nearby farmers markets in Ellisville, Wildwood, Eureka, Kirkwood and St. Charles. One everyday option is produce-centric Fresh Thyme Farmers Market at 13957 Manchester Road, which offers Midwestern-grown products. A second year-round, fresh food source is The Fruit Stand at 14433 Manchester Road, a family-owned store with seasonal goods, local vegetables, garden herbs and preserves from small vendors. Fresh meats in Chesterfield can be secured at The Smokehouse Market in the Valley, along with housemade soups, salads, pickles, olives and desserts. Get homegrown produce at Stuckmeyer's Farm Market and Greenhouse, a fourth-generation family-owned vegetable farm located between Fenton and Arnold at the intersection of Highway 141 and Highway 21. During the season, they sell green onions, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, cucumbers, blackberries, beets, green beans, sweet corn, peaches, watermelon and cantaloupe. In addition to fresh produce, the Stuckmeyer team opens their pumpkin patch and Fort Spooky September 30 through October 31. They host Halloween "Farm Fun Days" on weekends during October and offer for purchase

pumpkins, apples, fresh fruits, vegetables, gourds, corn stalks, Indian corn, straw, garden mums, kettle corn, hot dogs and caramel apples. An inflatable slide, hayrides and pony rides also will be available. On September 30, a Budweiser Clydesdale will be in the pumpkin patch from 11 a.m. to noon. This will be the third year for this special event, which includes taking pictures with the beloved horse. Additionally, Stuckmeyer's hosts their 20th Annual Antique Tractor Show on October 1. People head to Thies Farm and Greenhouses in St. Charles for strawberry picking and for the autumn Pumpkinland, where kids can enjoy fall activities, farm animals, mazes, hayrides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, pony rides and a corn cannon. Fall produce for sale includes squash, pumpkins, eggplants, spinach, lettuces, broccoli and fruits, such as cantaloupes and apples. Driven by weather, Wind Ridge Farm in New Melle some years still has "u-pick" peaches through Labor Day. During summers, they offer blueberries and blackberries. Lakeview Farms in St. Peters offers "u-pick" strawberries and raspberries during summers, and sells decorative gourds during September through October.

Two Illinois-based farms that prompt many to make an annual pilgrimage to them include Mills Apple Farm in Marine, where the orchards offer apples and peaches, along with pumpkins, and Eckert's Country Store & Farm in Belleville. Eckert's owners claim it is the largest family-owned, pick-your-own orchard in the U.S. It started as a simple roadside stand in 1910 and now is operated by the sixth and seventh generations of the Eckert family.
