Defining Modern

S

ome common definitions of the term “modern” include: - “of or relating to present and recent time" -  “characteristic  of  present  and  recent  time;  contemporary;  not antiquated or obsolete” - and “of, relating to, or characteristic of contemporary styles of art, literature, music,  etc.,  that  reject  traditionally  accepted  or  sanctioned forms and emphasize individual experimentation and sensibility.” The last definition really rings a bell for me, as well as, I expect, many of our readers’. In this issue, you will read about modern trends in upscale homes, as well as tips from an interior designer on ways to incorporate modern features into a room without the need to start from scratch or entirely moving away from the traditional look long favored in Oklahoma. We also offer a short primer on modern art: how it’s defined, where and how the art form developed, some of its key players, etc. Central Oklahoma residents have several museums close by where they can get up close and personal with some pretty impressive examples of this art form, including the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, which graciously provided us with examples from their holdings for this story. Inside, we also look at a metro construction company that served as the “brain and brawn” behind the remodel of a famous stop along Route 66, the Round Barn in Arcadia, and on a homeowner who enlisted the help of a full-service construction and remodeling company to repair hail damage to his roof and siding, and, happily, ended up with a fullscale exterior home remodel that boosted his home’s curb appeal and value. And our popular Hot Spot restaurant review this time shines the spotlight on Norman’s La Baguette West, which shares many similarities with its sister on West Main Street but is described by owner Rudy Khouri as “quainter, more of a bistro setting.” This little gem is the perfect location for a romantic date night, a celebration with friends or a dinner that you won’t soon forget. We hope you enjoy our March issue, which is also chock-full of other informative and inspirational stories. And as always, we invite you to offer feedback on our Facebook page: facebook.com/ClevelandCountyLifestyle/. May the luck shine on you this St. Pat’s Day!

‘THE BIG ’ READ City Scene

Author-surgeon Atul Gawande

11TH EDITION TO FOCUS ON BEING MORTAL ARTICLE CHRISTIAN POTTS

For the past decade, the Pioneer Library System has made its PLS Big Read and NEA Big Read a springtime tradition. The 11th edition of the event is bringing literature into the 11 communities served by the library system. This year marks the first time the book has been a nonfiction selection and also the first time it’s come from outside the NEA’s list. Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande, focuses on a difficult topic–the end of life. The author, a practicing surgeon, looks into the way medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending. The PLS Big Read is presented this year in a collaboration between PLS and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Two separate programs throughout the PLS service area during the PLS Big Read will focus on the book. Each PLS Hometown library will host a scholar-moderated community book discussion of Being Mortal. Discussions include: Shawnee, 7 p.m. March 2; Norman Central, 2 p.m. March 5; McLoud, 6 p.m. March 7; Newcastle, 6 p.m. March 7; Noble, 1 p.m. March 9; Purcell, 6 p.m. March 9; Southwest Oklahoma City,  6:30 p.m.  March 9; Tecumseh,  6:30

Not only does this piece satisfy previously mentioned modern qualities, it is also is a great way to display new modern accessories.  GO GLOBAL

European, American, and Chinese furniture is common in traditional homes, so to infuse a little variety into the mix, seek out décor from  Africa,  South America, or  Southeast Asia. Geometric prints and natural elements such as rough-hewn wood and teak are influences from these regions. Geometric forms can be seen again on the lamps and in the print on the pillows. Some of these prints have an African vibe, while the banana leaf vases and sculptural wood forms seem South American in origin. Add a touch of the South Pacific with a simple tropical leaf, or succulents in a bowl, a very modern touch.  Gia Rose, IIDA/ASID/AIGA, is an interior designer and gallery manager at Designer’s Market in

Again, no one  simple answer. Says Bailey, “Colonialism, the Enlightenment, secularization, revolution, capitalism, industrialization, urbanization, socialism, and anarchism are a few of the big ones.” Though Bailey declines to select a “top-five” list of modern art masters, quipping that “art history isn’t that neat and tidy,” a quick internet search on modern art comes up with some names of several renowned modern artists–among them Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Salvador Dali, Paul Klee, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol. Bailey did, however, offer up the names of some of this state’s most important modern artists: The Kiowa Six, Allan Houser and Leon Polk Smith. Want to learn more? There’s a wealth of information available on the internet and in books, but a more fun approach would be to visit area museums and art galleries that feature modern art (among other genres). In Cleveland County, your first stop should be the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art (see sidebar). You’ll also want to take a drive north to check out the modern art collections held by the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.  22

f you are ever in Norman, Oklahoma, your bucket list might go something like this: visit the University of

Oklahoma campus, spend some time at the National Weather Museum or have lunch at the award-winning Sooner Legends BBQ. For those who enjoy history, a trip north on old route 66 will put you in Arcadia, the site of the internationally famous round barn. This description may not have you jumping out of your seat and grabbing the kids and a road map, but the story of this unique American land-

a dance hall, and the booming agricultural town of Arcadia

in taking on its restoration just might pique your interest. Almost 120 years ago, William Odor had the ambitious idea to create a barn that defied common architectural practices. He wanted a structure that could withstand Oklahoma’s unpredictable weather conditions, most notably tornadoes. Mr. Odor was simply looking for utility, but thanks to the curiosity and persuasion of those around him, the barn provided so much more. The loft was converted to gathered there for all sorts of occasions, not to mention the tens of thousands of travelers stopping by to see if the rumors of this intriguing spherical feat were true. Over the years, the building has seen a lot. Life has happened around it. Route 66 no longer brings droves of chrome-covered family wagons past its story-filled walls.

The refurbishing of the Arcadia Round Barn, a landmark and tourist attraction on historic U.S. Route 66, was handled by a Norman-based construction company.

Looking at photos taken before its restoration, it seemed to be headed for a certain burial into the Oklahoma red dirt. Until 1992, no one had the resources or the expertise to revive this once thriving piece of Oklahoma culture. Some web research will uncover the “Over-The-Hill Gang� as being the brains and the brute of this restoration project. What you might not know about is the team that continued to revitalize the structure when it needed further repairs, truly preserving its history into something the

city of Arcadia and Oklahomans could take pride in once again. That team is Affordable Construction Co., a Norman-based company that has provided an array of home remodeling, construction and storm damage-repair services for 40 years. Affordable founder and president Dan Glazier learned of a news report saying that the Round Barn again was in dire needs for repairs and they were having trouble finding a contractor due to the unique shape and expertise for a project of this magnitude. “Since I was born and raised in Oklahoma, I love being involved with the community and

preserving our historical buildings and culture as well as touching the lives of Oklahomans,” said Dan Glazier, owner and founder of Affordable Construction Co. “It was truly a pleasure to ease the stress and worry from Mr. Sam, chairman of the Arcadia Historical Society during the time we made repairs.” It is that attitude that made Affordable Construction Co. the perfect candidate to step up on the Round Barn project. Their choice to accept the challenge was easy because of its profound impact on so many people.  Glazier and his team knew this was an ambitious undertaking, much like Odor’s during its original construction. The extent of liability and safety for the crew working on a four-story-tall structure in poor condition was apparent, but that did not stop this company. It took special care and a good eye to make sure the building was water-tight as well as pleasing to the eye. In the end, the pristine results that have come to define the company were achieved, and the most rewarding part of the project was realized: to be a part of Oklahoma history and help a nonprofit organization like the Round Barn. Since completion, Affordable still hears of the positive wave they helped put in motion. Several new clients of Affordable have asked about the project or spoken highly of the impact it had: a proud moment for the team. Glazier even told of a customer who appreciated the company and the involvement in the community so much, their search for a new career lead them to join the Affordable family! So next time you are in town, stop by the Round Barn on old Route 66, and experience a rich history that includes William Odor, Arcadia and Affordable Construction Co.

hopping for homes online through virtual tours and 3-D modeling programs is becoming increasingly

popular, and is definitely the wave of the future. It’s a great way to “prescreen” your potential new home, especially if your current digs are too far away to make shopping in person practical at first. In fact, about 96 percent of potential home-buyers go online first to research and look at possibilities. Once you’re serious about relocating, however, nothing replaces the benefits obtained by working with a local professional Realtor who knows the crucial, ever-changing details that will impact your quality of life far beyond the new home’s walls, says Loren Coburn, real estate broker and owner of RE/MAX Elite in Norman. “When I start working with clients I get to know people on a personal level; that lets me match the person to the home,” Coburn said. “Depending on what they’ve already established up front, as a Realtor you

As Realtors we live and breathe the local community, and we give clients the personal touch of knowing the area and the homes and being able to answer all their questions.”

First-time homebuyers, in particular, may not think about anything but the house itself, when in fact that’s only one piece of the entire picture. A good Realtor will know the surrounding neighborhood, schools, long-term city development plans, local issues, activities, events and any other pieces of information that impact on your family’s quality of life beyond the purchase date.

For instance, Norman’s dual identity as both a metro commuter suburb

and home to the state’s largest university give it a unique “big town/small town” feel, due to the ebb and flow as the students leave town between

semesters. This is a combination that gives it–and the surrounding Cleveland County–an appeal that reaches out to all types of prospective

home buyers. Even with the internet, many who are just moving to the

area have no idea what’s available, which neighborhoods are the best fit for them, or they learn in-depth details that influence their decision.

to be able to break down the purchase for them and take the lead in the negotiating process, which really takes the pressure off the client,”

Coburn said. “We serve as that middle person, and we can make a big difference in negotiating lower closing costs, etc.

“Many people who are on the fence about buying make that deci-

Anderson, a broker associate with expertise on home-buying and remodeling said, “Valor promised—and better yet, delivered—all the things an excellent company should do from start to finish. Rayson gave me a quote and stuck to the price.” He added that, as with any remodel work, surprises popped up; despite that, the company never asked for additional funds.  “The contractors were meticulous and would stop if anything looked out of place,” he said. "All the workers were professional and kind.  34

In addition, the gutters were replaced with black gutters to give a bit of definition and make all the other colors pop. New shutters were also added to break up the light gray on the siding with the dark gray on the lower brick. Anderson said, that he is “thrilled” with the new look, as he “really could not stand the brown siding and blond brick from before.” “I would recommend Valor Systems to anyone,” Anderson said. “Their bid was very reasonable, especially for the excellence and professionalism of their work. Even the extra work that I added on top of the roof work was very reasonable.”


When looking for a company for any remodeling project, big or small, Valor Systems' owners, Rayson and Ashley Sanchez, recommend that home buyers obtain more than one quote and call for references. When calling for references, questions should include: “Did the remodeling company really listen and perform the work as requested and in a timely manner?” “Did they stay within the budget?” “Were they responsive to your concerns?” “Would you use them again?” Valor Systems, LLC, is family-owned and -operated in Oklahoma and boasts over 20 years of industry-leading construction experience and a solid background in the insurance field. Rayson Sanchez, describes Valor Systems as a “progressive company built on respect, industry knowledge and, most of all, integrity.” The company is located at 1824 Atchison Drive, Ste. B, Norman, OK 73069. For more information, call 701.3390, email info@valoroklahoma.com or visit valoroklahoma.com. In addition to the new roof, Anderson's house was refitted with new, smart siding; a metal roof over the patio, new black gutters and new shutters, among other improvements.

hen I pulled into the parking lot of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church 35 years ago, I was looking for a place to put my Montessori school. Ever since, this church has been a wonderful home for Southwind Montessori. Montessori education recognizes that all children move at their own pace. I’ve probably taught 2,000 children at Southwind. My alumni are now returning with their children, which is the finest compliment I can receive. What I like most about Republic is they are a home-based bank. They have the nicest staff of any business I’ve ever seen. I don’t know what they are doing over there –– but whatever it is, it works! They are impressive. I’m all about the children at Southwind, and Republic helps me provide for their needs. Republic is my partner.”
