HOW TO FIND IT ALL

UNEXPECTED TREASURES Aimee and Alain Joyaux live the loft

lifestyle in downtown Petersburg. B Y PAU L E T T E R O B E R T S - P U L L E N PHOTOS BY TODD WRIGHT

It can be daunting, whether you’re hunting for the perfect lamp or completely renovating your house, to find the right sources. In this issue, we’ve done that legwork for you and assembled a comprehensive guide to make your search easier. Stash this issue somewhere safe and pull it out when you need it. Furniture mavens Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams are coming to Ruth & Ollie’s in Carytown to talk about their new book, The Comfortable Home, and we were lucky enough to get a chance to ask them a few questions (for the entire interview, go to rhomemag.com). Furniture was also on designer Thom Filicia’s mind when we talked to him as he prepared for the launch of his new line for Vanguard, which will be carried exclusively in Richmond by Williams & Sherrill. And R•Home columnist Wendy Umanoff found a bounty of repurposed home accessories that caught the eye of local stores at the New York International Gift Fair this year. We’re also a town brimming over with talented artists, thanks to the top-ranked School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. We were curious how an artist lives away from the gallery and at home. Artist Pam Anderson found the perfect cottage in Forest Hill and arranged her things with precision to tell the narrative of her life with art and objects. Aimee Joyaux and her husband, Alain, found an inspiring pre-Civil Warera warehouse in Petersburg, which they are still busy renovating. Chris Palmer found a way to work at home by turning the living room of his Fan apartment into a combination studio space and gallery. Sandy and Heyn Kjerulf, major benefactors to the local art scene, also have been collecting both international and regional art for more than 40 years. In fact, their collection inspired the renovation of their three-story Fan home, a house that had been R•HOME TWEETS! abandoned for 20 years. Once friend and 3north architect Follow R•Home on Sandy Bond took the structure to its walls, he was able to Twitter at twitter. redesign the house to emphasize light and space — and in com/RHome a style that rewrites history and brings the interior right up Magazine! to the 20th and 21st centuries. We hope you’ll be intrigued and inspired by all of the things other Richmonders are doing right now to their homes. Even more important, we hope that with our guide we’ve made it just a little bit easier to get your projects up and running. The first step is to turn to page 52!

Roberts-Pullen worked for local architecture firms for nine years. She has written about art and architecture for Art Papers, Style Weekly and R.Home. For this issue’s story about Aimee and Alain Joyaux’s ambitious conversion of a Petersburg warehouse/storefront to a residence, she discovered a happy convergence of art and architecture.

Jeff Saxman Saxman has produced product, food, and portrait photography for clients such as Hamilton Beach, Reynolds, C.F. Sauer, UPS, Wal-Mart and Special Olympics Virginia. He spends his free time playing volleyball at Richmond Volleyball Club, working with Boy Scout Troop 1891 or trying to get to the mountains or river with his wife and two boys. He shot this month’s cover in his Shockoe Bottom studio.

S

candal is hard thing to shake — or suppress. Arabella Huntington was a very private woman, and it may be because she had a thing or two to hide. Born in Richmond in 1850, Catharine Arabella Duval Yarrington grew up in a boardinghouse run by her mother located near Capitol Square. Collis Huntington was a railroad tycoon nearly 30 years older than Arabella. The two probably met when his company (the C & O Railroad) built the line that connected Richmond to the Ohio River Valley; evidence also suggests that he provided financial support for the family prior to and after the family relocated in New York when Arabella was a teenager. Things then get a little murky. “She was a survivor,” says Susan Rawles, assistant curator of American Decorative Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Although there’s no record that a marriage took place, Arabella took the name of John Worsham, owner of gambling parlors in Richmond and New York, and the putative father of her child,

A stained-glass window was meticulously restored by conservator Carey Howlett's team.

Archer Worsham. After John Worsham’s death and nine months after Collis Huntington’s wife’s death, the two were married in 1884, and Arabella entered New York society on equal footing with families like the Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts. In fact, she would later sell her house on 54th Street to John D. Rockefeller Sr. Working with firms like Pottier & Stymus, Herter Brothers and Sypher & Co., Arabella Huntington decorated the 54th Street house in the high style of the Aesthetic Movement, an art-and-design movement in the second half of the 19th century that emphasized beauty and craftsmanship. Influenced by Japanese art, it overlapped with the Arts and Crafts Movement that became so influential at the turn of the 20th century. The combination of Arabella’s exceptional taste and Huntington’s money resulted in a remarkable room that, 129 years later, has been transported more than 300 miles to the city where she grew up. It is on view now in the new McGlothlin wing of the VMFA.

Howlett's team works to remove old adhesive from the backs of tiles.

The ribbon detail, a holdover from earlier French-influenced style, can be seen in this Aesthetic Movement fireplace.

hen Chris Palmer moved into his Fan apartment in the fall of 2008, he envisioned a space where people would be visually entertained, and not just by his artwork. “I like the idea of people coming in, sitting and looking around,” he says. “A friend walked in and jokingly said I have a salon.” Palmer, who teaches drawing and printmaking at Randolph-Macon College and printmaking at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School, has made the front room of his apartment multifunctional: a dining room, a showroom and a studio. “It’s a wonderful space for me,” he says. “I come in here late at night, put on some music and draw.” It’s an important showcase for Palmer’s personal work, including a collection of luscious, one-of-a-kind landscape prints. It also highlights some of his favorite finds from students past and present. A ceramic vase created by a former middle-school student sits on the sill overlooking Hanover Avenue, and another on a wooden

table greets guests. The room also serves as a revolving gallery of art. When the mood strikes, Palmer will rotate one of his own pieces with one that he’s received from an exchange of 30 artists. One of his goals was to keep everything in the room inexpensive. Most of the furnishings cost less than $200 or were given to him by friends — and he never throws anything away, he says. A workman’s chest from Sears holds his supplies; a trio of outdoor chairs offers guests a panoramic view of the room. Palmer relishes the apartment’s location. “I can draw here and print at the VMFA Studio School, have people over, take a break and go to dinner,” he says. “It’s a great little meeting place.”

Don’t Talk About Pizza Club Victoria and Joe Deroche burn wood and bake pizza in their backyard By Brandon Fox

don’t even want to tell you about Pizza Club. If I do, you’re all going to want to join, and then I’ll never be able to fight through the crowd and get my hands on a piece of any amazing pizza concocted there again. Each month on a Sunday, artist Joe Deroache and his wife, Victoria, invite friends over for a different kind of potluck. Victoria announces a theme, and guests bring pizza toppings related to that theme. (When I visited in late March, the theme was “spring.”) Dough is provided, and each guest (or couple) makes an inventive pizza designed to impress, to delight and to satiate. Then Joe whisks it away on a long, wooden pizza peel to the wood-burning oven in the backyard. “Joe makes it look easy,” says Tom Sullivan, who also brewed a special toasty, caramel-ly beer he calls “Scottish Wee Heavy.” He brews something different for each Pizza Club. In the beginning, the Deroches didn’t have good luck with the oven. “The first two tries after we got it were a disaster,” Joe says. He was a little worried — and annoyed. Joe then tells me a story to illustrate his point. “My mother once had a bird named Roscoe she really, really wanted to talk, but when it didn’t — well, it still was the family pet — but it didn’t get quite the attention it did before.” “That bird was forgotten,” Victoria says later. “I was going to write ‘Roscoe’ in big letters across this pizza oven,” Joe says. 

Here’s my favorite (and the most unusual) pizza: DESSERT PIZZA — CREATED BY CURTIS BROWN

INGREDIENTS • 1 round of your favorite pizza dough • 1 quart of strawberries (or to taste) • Honey • Confectioners’ sugar • 2 tablespoons of chopped, fresh mint • Balsamic syrup (usually, but not always, called saba)

ABOVE: Joe Deroche readies the oven while Russell Bell looks on. BELOW: Samantha Anderson and Rhoan Jones slice up their shrimp and garlic pizza.

ABOVE: Victoria Deroche brings out just a few of the 31 rounds of pizza dough that would be used that night. BELOW: A plethora of toppings brought by the guests.

(“I wouldn’t let him,” Victoria adds). Instead, after those first two tries, they turned the corner pretty quickly. Luckily. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be treated to an earthy fiddlehead fern, pancetta, flat-leaf parsley and goat-cheese pizza. Or one with thinly sliced purple sweet potatoes with mozzarella and Parmesan. Or the most interesting and profoundly spring-like pizza, which was made by Deanna Rodgers and topped with sliced lamb, peas, feta and a blast of chopped, fresh mint sprinkled over top while it stood steaming, just out of the oven. It was pouring rain that night, and Joe spent nearly three hours soaking wet, feeding the fire and baking pizza, fortified with little but beer and the occasional slice of pizza. “I made dough for 31 pizzas this time,” says Victoria, “I had two KitchenAids going.” All the dough was used, even the last one, which, when we all saw Joe’s face when he 22

M AY / J U N E

was presented with it, made someone say, “I don’t know if that (pizza peel) is steaming or Joe’s head.” Inside, where it was warm and dry, folks were drinking an Italian summer standard, Prosecco with a lashing of Aperol and soda — a “Spritz.” Each pizza that came in from the outside was sliced into slivers so that everyone could get a taste. “People at Pizza Club are always asking, ‘Am I full?’ You only eat an eighth of a piece [at a time],” Victoria says. “But then you pick and you eat, and by the end of the night, everyone says, ‘I am full!’” I can attest to that. And I had an advantage since I was single-mindedly hanging around the tiny spot carved out from the plates of cheese and crackers and tapenade and other great things to eat on the kitchen island where the pizzas generally landed. All night long.

DIRECTIONS If you don’t have your very own wood-burning pizza oven, preheat your normal oven to 425 degrees F. Wash and de-hull the strawberries, leaving some whole and a few chopped thickly. Sprinkle the pizza dough with a few of the whole strawberries (six to eight) and lavish with honey. Dust generously with confectioners’ sugar. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, watching carefully so that pizza browns and doesn’t burn. Remove from the oven and add the rest of the strawberries or to taste. Sprinkle all over with the chopped mint and more confectioners’ sugar, finishing with a drizzle of balsamic syrup. Eat with abandon.

Design for Mankind Thom Filicia: Part interior designer, part television personality, part therapist  By Carrie Nieman Culpepper

Thom Filicia is one of the most wellknown interior designers working today. First launched into Americans’ living rooms in 2003 as the smiley design guru on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Filicia has ever since straddled the worlds of high and low design. His private clients include Jennifer Lopez and the W Hotels chain, but the egalitarian Filicia also spruces up the homes of misguided everymen and women on his Style Network show Dress My Nest, now in its fourth season. This spring he launches a new home collection with Vanguard, complete with furniture, floor coverings, lighting, textiles and more. Jamie Coffey, creative director of Richmond’s Williams & Sherrill Interiors, was so impressed by the collection that he decided to carry every piece. He calls it “warm modern” and is particularly taken with the collection’s chameleon-like versatility. “It enables you to bring that one modern piece into your home to elevate things. You can take that coffee table and put it in front of a very traditional sofa, and it works.” In between shooting episodes of his new Style Network show Tacky House, premiering this spring, and traveling to his new fixer-upper in upstate New York, which will be the subject of his second book, we managed to catch Filicia in transit and ask him a few questions.

The pieces in your new line are all very different from one another. What was your inspiration?

A

The line was inspired by iconic furniture pieces that have proven themselves for many years, but with a fresh take for the way we live today. I wanted to create a versatile aesthetic that reflects a fresh yet timeless approach to design, and balances elements in unique and beautiful ways: refined details mixed with raw edges, industrial played against organic, and materials, textures and palettes interwoven in unexpected ways. … I’m always trying to give people the confidence to reflect their own personalities through design. I think all of the pieces allow someone to do that, and that’s another important theme that I believe unites the collection.

Q

{

Was there any element within the collection that you designed as a reaction to what you see in design?

A

My Strathmore console is a reaction to beautiful consoles that lack functionality. Often you see these fabulous consoles with captivating bases, but they have no storage or other functional elements. The Strathmore has a really beautiful design and interesting base, but also is functional in a way that doesn’t take away from the aesthetic.  

A

I got stuck in the elevator of my office building with my dog Paco one day for an hour with a few other people. One person particularly was freaking out, so I did my best to make light of the situation, distract them, tell some jokes, etc. Turns out one of the other passengers was a talent manager. We exchanged numbers and the next day she called and asked me if I wanted to audition for a TV show. The rest is history!

It’s actually the subject of my new book, which is going to be my guide for renovating, decorating, gardening and entertaining with style. It’s part memoir, part renovation manual and part entertaining guide, and follows me as I renovate and decorate this 90-year-old cottage on a lake. The design is going to be classic but timely and very appropriate for the architecture of the home, its location and, of course, me.

Too often, people make the mistake of designing a room that matches rather than one that coordinates. Rather than a matchy-matchy look that is over-decorated, a stylish room should include a variety of pieces that are casually connected through distinctive pairings and unexpected contrasts. The overall look of a room becomes much more original and authentic when things are mixed up but retain subtle repetitions of colors, shapes and themes.

Willow fencing An Englishcottage favorite, it works well with natural, free-form gardens, according to Anna Aquino, a local landscape architect. The woven fencing is flexible and can be molded around plantings to create shapes and delineate areas of your garden. It offers privacy and can be used as a screen around a sitting area or along the back edge of a cottage garden.

Bamboo Long the bane of gardeners for its invasive growth pattern, bamboo is making a comeback in the garden. As a plant, it can be hard to control, but when cut and turned into fencing, it can make an eco-friendly option for garden partitioning, according to Drew Harrigan, owner of Four Winds Design. Garden-supply companies offer bamboo as short, picket-sized fencing and as an edging material.

reating garden “rooms” may be a popular new landscaping style, but it doesn’t work without attention to one oftenoverlooked detail: separation. Without a partition, garden styles (and the plants themselves) can easily blur into one and create a mess rather than a sophisticated display. But don’t settle for the boring concrete edgers at your local homeimprovement store. There are plenty of fresh ways to highlight special portions of your garden.

mammoth magnolia trees in your front yard. New dwarf varieties like Little Gem can make a perfect hedgerow. Plant them within 7 feet of one another, and the trees grow together in a bush-like pattern, Aquino explains. Unlike most hedges, however, the trees have large branches that you can shape into archways.

Parterres Once the purview of

only the serious (or professional) gardener, parterres are making a comeback. Parterres are short shrubs, usually less than 2 feet tall, and are grown in a geometric shape to border a flower or herb garden. A new cultivar, the Justin Brouwer Korean Boxwood, starts at around 24 to 30 inches and grows very little, making it easy to keep in check. “With Justins, you plant them and that’s where they stay,” Aquino says.

Light It’s a nighttime trick, but

uplighting can easily delineate an entertaining space or a sitting spot, says Matt Templeton, owner of Illuminations Landscape Lighting. Choose your space — it helps if you have a focal point like a bench or seating wall — and then find anchor points around it for lighting. It’s dramatic and immediately draws the eye, Templeton explains.

S

ure, Maggi Tinsley could buy bunch of new furniture, but finding inventive ways to use the pieces she has is more fun. “I have a lot of family furniture,” she says. “It’s more of a challenge to work with.” Rather than ditching old furnishings, Tinsley looks at their structure. If it’s still sound, she reupholsters the piece with contemporary fabrics, re-styles and reuses it. She then mixes these items with contemporary art for a look she describes as personalized, or quirky traditional. Given her gallery background and current position as marketing and publicrelations coordinator for the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, Tinsley has developed an extensive collection. She also has acquired an array of artwork, home décor and knickknacks from two unmarried aunts who traveled the world and brought back gifts for her. She places all these treasures throughout her home, so that every wall, nook and cranny includes something special to behold.

A

rtist Aimee Joyaux and her scholar/craftsman husband, Alain, have paid the ultimate compliment to a town. Anticipating a departure from their academic lives in Indiana, they dreamed of a home large enough to support their passions. Their requirements were simple: proximity to an international airport for easy access to their house in France, a large quantity of inexpensive space so that they could live and work under one roof (Aimee wanted a big studio, and Alain wanted a shop) and a moderate climate so that heating a large space wouldn’t break the bank. They chose Petersburg. The couple bought a pre-Civil War warehouse that was on the verge of collapse in the downtown area. “It’s really Alain who has the vision,” says Aimee. When they first toured the building, Alain saw potential while she saw a disaster. They took detailed measurements of the building back to Indiana and spent another year planning and consulting with building experts. They scoured scratch-and-dent stores and salvage yards for inexpensive materials and fi xtures. They collected old chalkboards for flooring, discarded limestone architectural elements, Victorianera salt-glazed paving bricks, laboratory counters, doors, sinks and anything else they thought they could use. It took two semitrailers to move everything to Virginia. For nearly six years they lived in a small house close by while Alain, a museum director-turnedbuilder, labored mostly alone on the three-story, 11,000-squarefoot building on North Sycamore Street. Tending to all aspects of the renovation, he started by stripping the building to its shell, discovering layer upon layer of materials added during its 150-year existence. Eventually, he uncovered enough heart pine flooring for the second- and third-floor living spaces, as well as a portion of the

“The city of Petersburg, the patchwork of old buildings . . . the topography of the city is inspiring to me.” —Aimee Joyaux ABOVE RIGHT: Wall Street skyscraper sculptures by Aimee Joyaux BOTTOM RIGHT: Alain Joyaux removed the old plaster from the warehouse wall and decided to leave the brick with its unusual markings exposed.

cast-iron storefront trim at the exterior street entrance. Ever the student of history, Alain used such original architectural elements to inform subsequent construction decisions. In architectural rehabs, unexpected conditions often end up shaping the character of a new space. When Alain removed crumbling plaster from existing walls, he found whitewashed brick that had been deliberately chipped with chisels so that plaster would adhere to it. Rather than hide the chips with drywall, the pair opted to live with the textured surface. Now the wall works as another layer of art in this art-filled home. Alain based other design decisions on necessity. Concerned that spilled liquids in Aimee’s studio could reach electrical wiring, he covered the entire studio floor with rubbery battleship insulation. The material not only resists moisture but also looks like stone planking and is soft underfoot. Despite the many conditions that challenge visual harmony in this space — the size of the building, the assortment of materials, the con-

trasts between old and new — a unifying honesty and depth of thoughtfulness floods every corner. Alain’s attention to craftsmanship, from the massive wall of bookshelves in their living area to his custom cabinetry throughout the building, speaks to an elevated level of care and intention. Plentiful space is an added bonus for two people who like collecting. Alain, who has already amassed an impressive art and book collection, is acquiring large power tools, while Aimee, whose silver-print collection lines walls throughout the house, is in the process of adding printing presses to her bevy of specialized equipment. With a darkroom and various print- and book-making tools and machines, Aimee’s studio is an artist’s fantasy. In fact, the setup (which is larger than some houses) rivals those of many college art departments. Aimee says that the size of her studio offers advantages. “The scale of my painting has been affected by the space — I can have four big paintings going at one time.” As for inspiration, Aimee need not travel far to find it. Alain’s art collection, which includes prints by Goya, Matisse and Berthe Morisot, fuels her creativity. Aimee adds, “I walk my dog a lot and we go through all the alleys and backstreets. The city of Petersburg, the patchwork of old buildings, remnants of buildings that have been torn down, roof pitches, the topography of the city, is inspiring to me.” Stories are still to come; they want to see an antiques store in their street-level space (they have already imported enough French furniture to start a business), and Alain is planning a summer kitchen and an outdoor courtyard where he will plant a tree and use a salvaged tree grate to protect it. “I love narratives,” says Aimee. “Life is full of stories.” 

From Gerald Donato to Eleanor Rufty, it’s an impressive gathering of Richmond’s best artists and complements a collection of work by international stars of contemporary art including Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg and Alexander Calder. Sandy Kjerulf recalls their first acquisition — a Calder print —as a couple. It took them 10 years before they could agree on a piece they both liked. “We both loved the image, color, everything about it, including that it wasn’t that expensive,” she says. All artists are on an equal footing, and it’s a testament to the Kjerulfs’ eye that Virginia Commonwealth University MFA student pieces hang gracefully next to internationally known work. Both Heyn and Sandy have spent countless hours dedicated to the arts as well as human services, serving on boards and acting as advisors to the City of Richmond’s Public Art Commission, the Richmond Symphony, ChildSavers and 1708 Gallery (just to name a few). In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the couple went to Louisiana to help the Center for Contemporary Arts in New Orleans get back on its feet. When the Kjerulfs first looked at the threestory Fan property in 2000, it had been vacant for 20 years, boarded up, waterlogged, and came complete with sagging sills and squatter tenants. Before they bought the property, they called on architect Sandy Bond. He was familiar with the house from his daily commute and was impressed with its bones. Upon investigation, the three soon realized that it was going to be a complete gut job; the first step would be to take

the structure down to its brick walls. Chip Spitzer of C.E. Spitzer Inc. came onto the project as the builder, and it was the partnership and collaboration — as well as creative tensions — between Spitzer, Bond, architect Jay Hugo, also from 3north, and the Kjerulfs that resulted in an innovative restoration. “The process was organic, and when issues arose in construction, the team collaborated on how best to work through [them],” says Heyn. From the demolition in the summer of 2000 to an autumn of planning, actual construction

spanned most of 2001. The Kjerulfs moved in that December. Art played a major role in determining the design of the interior. The Kjerulfs had a substantial collection that they had accumulated over 20 years, and they wanted to ensure that it would be the centerpiece of their new home. One of the bigger challenges was reconciling the Kjerulfs’ desire for an open floor plan while still retaining the wall space to display their collection. Many of the design decisions were made

with light in mind. The entire back brick wall of the house was replaced by steel and glass, which allows daylight to permeate the kitchen and basement. What was originally an old coal cellar was deepened to create a comfortable den and media room. Behind the house, the back patio was lowered significantly to allow for even more natural light in the basement. Together, Heyn and Sandy Kjerulf have made a major impact on the Richmond art landscape over the past several decades as collectors, patrons, and consultants. Their home

is a testament to their love for the arts as both a gallery for the collection that it houses and the thoughtful way in which it melds past and present in its innovative contemporary renovation. “Each piece of art that we have collected has a special meaning for us,” says Sandy, “and tells a story of our lives together, and of the artists that we’ve gotten to know in the community and beyond.”  John Haddad is past president of the board of 1708 Gallery and served alongside Sandy Kjerulf, who is a board member emeritus.

he enormous, framed pencil drawing of breasts above the couch in Pam Anderson’s living room creates an intriguing contrast to the tidy white-picket fence, flower flag and potted plants outside her pale-yellow 1920s Craftsman bungalow. “It’s a pretty scary piece to have in your living room,” Anderson says of her 1995 drawing, The Bluest Eye, which she describes as kind of surreal, kind of vaginal, kind of like a flounder. Then again, every object in this home tells its own story, drawing in the eye, requiring closer examination. Born in Richmond but raised in Charlottesville, Anderson received an art degree from the College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in painting from Washington University in St. Louis. When searching for a house in Forest Hill, she saw a garage filled with easels (now her studio). That cinched the deal. A well-known arts figure in Richmond — the upper-school art teacher at Collegiate, an emeritus member of 1708 Gallery and a board member of the Visual Arts Center — Anderson was the 2004 recipient of a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts fellowship and the 2009 winner (in the Fine Art category) of a Theresa Pollak Prize for Excellence in the Arts from Richmond magazine. She has shown her work in various galleries around the city and has been represented by New York gallery Kathryn Markel Fine Arts since 2005. Beyond glossy résumé and a large public persona, her home and art reveal the more deeply personal details of her life. “My work is really autobiographical,” says Anderson, a breast-cancer survivor. “I’ve always been ruminating on loss — issues of aging, sexuality.” Over the years, the themes of self in her art have primarily changed through medium. She’s worked in ceramics, prints and oil, and her current work is collage-based. “You’d be surprised what I can adhere to pa-

“Everything in my house is there for a reason. I like each room, in a way, to have a specific feeling.” —Pam Anderson

per,” she says. “From pencil to sewing to paint, to pieces of wood. I use throwaway items — it takes them out of the trash and elevates them. I’m trying to make things stay.” Portrait of My Desire, a companion piece to The Bluest Eye, hangs in her dining room. Selfportraits flank the desk in her office, offset by a collage featuring the poetry of a friend who died while in Italy. Anderson’s bedroom, painted white and pale blue to create the sensation of floating in the sky, holds her most sacred objects, including her art books and the ashes of her father, a boyfriend and her cat. With furnishings mostly inherited or scavenged, Anderson has done all of the interior design and decoration herself. “My artistic sensibility informs my decorating in its emphasis on editing and placement. Everything in my house is there for a reason. I like each room, in a way, to have a specific feeling, or perhaps embody even a person.” As she lives alone, Anderson’s placement of each object is both intimate and intentional. She is pleased with the throw pillows from Target and delighted by the lambskin

rug she found at Costco. But the most important things in her home were made by hand. Each room is lined with books and art — her own as well as that of her students and other renowned artists like Greg Carbo, Theresa Pollak, Chris Chase, Langdon Graves, Heide Trepanier and Kathryn Henry-Choisser. “My house is very sentimental in that I have ‘holdings’ from a lot of different people in my life,” she says. Anderson’s studio — where she spends much of her weekends and summers — houses various art materials, scraps for collage, bits of nature, a rubber model of the human brain, a huge print of a poem by Elizabeth Bishop, various works in progress, a stone fireplace and an old crib filled with thousands of ceramic casts of her fingers. “It’s a crib or a coffin,” she says. “It shows that place between life and death.” While many of the big questions she asks in her art are still unanswered, her search is well-documented. “It’s not a cold house,” she says. “People come in and say, ‘this is like being in a little heart.’ ” 


The bedroom, decorated to feel like the sky, displays one of Anderson’s ceramic pit-fired vessels and her charcoal-andshellac bowl drawing.

Closing the Gap Women in Architecture By Courtney Crane Dauer

I

n a show to celebrate women in architecture, “Glass Ceilings,” the Virginia Center for Architecture has assembled work from barrier-busting pioneers such as Mary Brown Channel, the first female architect registered in Virginia; Lois Gottlieb, an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright; and Lilia Sofer Skala, who fled the Nazis with her architecture portfolio under her arm. “This exhibition, which is a world premiere, is invigorating to the profession,” says curator Donna Dunay, an architecture professor at Virginia Tech and chair of its International Archive of Women in Architecture Center. “Our mission is to preserve art and stories and to tell the stories behind the drawings. We’re filling a historic gap.” The show will run until June 6 at the Virginia Center for Architecture.

A smaller boutique hotel, Rittenhouse 1715 (1715 Rittenhouse Square, 877-791-6500 or ritten house1715.com, rooms from $249 ), provides an oasis of quiet in the city in a restored turn-of-thelast-century carriage house.

Who needs Europe? Ten minutes outside Philly you’ll find The Barnes Foundation Galleries and Arboretum (300 North Latch’s Lane, Merion, Pa., 610-667-0290 or barnesfoundation. org, $15, reservations required ) and its astounding collection of artworks by Renoir, Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and more. Dr. Albert Barnes was known for incorporating his vast array of paintings and artifacts into “ensembles” for educational purposes. My favorites are the large Renoir nudes that hang above two outlandishly bigseated wooden chairs. Comfy. What happens when you take a building and mosaic the hell out of it — inside and out? At Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (1020 South St., 215-733-0390 or phillymagicgardens. org; admission: adults $4, children 6 to 12 $2, children 5 and under free), Isaiah Zagar has covered every inch of the building and courtyard with tile, bike wheels and glass. Jaw-dropping, eye-popping, neck-straining and wonderful, it’s 3-D graffiti, with the coolest bathroom in Philly.

Starting at downtown and then for the next 18 miles to Valley Forge, it’s possible to bike the paved path along the Schuylkill River without fearing autos (Human Zoom, 4159

SHOP Joseph Fox Bookshop (1724 Sansom St., 215-563-4184 or foxbookshop. com) is everything a bookstore ought to be. Known for its architecture books, its fiction and children’s sections are impressive as well. I admit it. Egan Day (260 S. 16th St., 267-773-8833 or eganday.com) is my sister Kate’s spare, sleek jewelry store. But it won Best of Philly ’09 for fine jewelry, so I’m not alone in thinking the store is a work of art. As the exclusive Philadelphia representative of renowned artists Ted Muehling, Gabriella Kiss and others, Egan Day is filling a niche in Philly with exquisitely made objects.

Main St., 215-487-7433 or humanzoom.com). Inline skaters, though, are a different story. Pass Boathouse Row and bike alongside the crew teams and dragon boats for a classic Philly feel ($30 a day).

Naked Chocolate Café

Not far from Rittenhouse Square, my sisters and I shared beautiful small plates of scallops, chorizo and shrimp at Mémé (2201 Spruce St., 215-7354900 or memerestaurant.com) — small enough so that we had room to try several desserts. Smart thinking (entrées from $19 to $44). Every mouthful of the blue-crab and avocado salad with fried green tomatoes and grilled hangar steak at the tiny-yet-tremendous Pumpkin Restaurant (1713 South St., 215-545-4448 or pumpkinphilly.com) was succulent. Get dessert. You won’t be disappointed (entrées from $23 to $25; tasting menu, $35; cash only and BYOB). Naked Chocolate Café (1317 Walnut St., 215-735-7310 or naked chocolatecafe.com) has a jazz pianist playing at 3 p.m. on Thursday afternoons. It made stuffing my face with coconut-almond bonbons almost civilized (assorted baked goods from $2 to $6). As a reward for a long walk sightseeing, head to Franklin Fountain (116 Market St., 215-627-1899 or franklinfountain.com) for old-school ice-cream creations. Sate yourself with the homemade ice cream and hot fudge, New York egg creams and seasonal, homemade pies in a classic setting (hot-fudge sundae with tax, $9).

Owners of the successful home-furnishings company, Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams, Gold (right) and Williams have also written a new book, The Comfortable Home: How to Invest in Your Nest and Live Well for Less (Clarkson Potter). R•Home had a chance to catch up with them and ask a few questions. R•HOME: What was your impetus in writing this book? Bob Williams: We really wanted to create a book to help people get started decorating their home. We want people to make a list of basic questions to ask themselves: What do they really want this room to do? R•HOME: Is that the very first thing you should do? Bob: Definitely. You know, a lot of people think, “I can start with the color” or other things, but we really encourage people to sit back . . . by answering some of those basic questions, they can start designing a room that really fits. R•HOME: What’s the next step? Mitchell Gold: In the book, there’s lots of pictures of rooms for people to take a look at and say, “Wow! That’s really something that resonates with me — that’s something I like.” Look for rooms you like ... look around, look at pictures, look at our book, and To read the if there are things you really like, try to entire interview mimic it. with Mitchell Gold Bob: An easy way to do that is to create and Bob Williams, a notebook and start tearing out images go to rhomemag. from magazines. When you’ve got a com. couple of pages full, you’ll start to notice a little bit of a theme.

7 TRAINING THE CONSUMER As a young apprentice, Tim McCready was given the task of making 100 pencil-post beds. “It was the exact antithesis of the romance of woodworking, but I learned a lot,” he says. Seventeen years later, McCready has his own shop, Bankston & Bailey Fine Furniture & Architectural Woodworking, in Scott’s Addition where he makes one-of-a-kind commissioned pieces. He’s now sharing his expertise in four-week classes for two students at a time, because he loves his craft and hopes it will not fade as we focus on the bottom line. Students make whatever they like – a poplar corner desk and a maple coffee table are two recent student projects – and no doubt leave with an appreciation of the craft. Classes, $450, include instruction, shop access and supplies; students provide the lumber. Contact him at 357-2111 or read his blog at woodmechanic.blogspot.com. —Elizabeth Woodroof Cogar

The Inconstant Gardener Coming to terms with a brown thumb By Maureen L. Egan

S

omehow in the spring it feels okay to write about all the plants I’ve killed. Looking outside at the lifeaffirming horticultural frenzy popping out all over eases my guilt (and the chances I’ll get caught). If PETA ever changes its name to Plants: Ethical Treatment Also, I’m in trouble. But for now, no one’s going to notice the corpses of abandoned cyclamen and oxalis in my yard amid the profusion of blooms outside. Spring actually makes me feel a bit bold. So I’ve murdered some plants, your honor. Prove it. I’ve killed an orchid, but really, who hasn’t? I don’t blame myself so much as the dead-end apartment we lived in at the time — all concrete and no natural light to speak of. Not even a petunia could hang on in there. How my husband and I did for two years I’ll never know. Honestly, though, behind the bravado is a bucketload of guilt. Had I filled the bucket with water instead, there wouldn’t be a problem, but I hate to water plants. Don’t really know why. Outside I’m a practitioner of tough love. I’ll plant you and water you at first, but pretty soon you’re just going to have to suck it up, so to speak. Every once in a while, during a prolonged dry period, the guilt of spending money on azaleas and leaving them to wither gets to me, so I’ll head down to the creek with a bucket and do my penance. But when the drought is bad enough, there’s nothing to squeeze out of the creek, so hey, who needs a drink more, the residents of metro Richmond or these azaleas? That helps make me feel downright upright about not watering. Mainly, I’m lazy, I guess, and ornery, too. In my defense I’d like to add that I am usually dehydrated myself, so at least I’m consistent. I’m just not the watering kind. I could use Willie Nelson warbling some background music here: “To all the plants I’ve killed before. The ones I shouldn’t have let in the door. Guess you helped my breath (sorry ’bout your death). To all the plants I’ve killed before … ”

I did love them all and have spent many a happy moment wandering about the Great Big Greenhouse looking for my next victim — I mean, purchase. It’s a wonder they let me bring things home from there anymore. I expect to see a photo of me next to the register: “Don’t accept this woman’s checks, cash or credit cards.” But I’ve loved and lost. I’ve also hated and not lost. Several years back, nice people sent us two huge peace lilies after other nice people died. After years and years of neglect, these ugly things won’t die, and it’s killing me. They sure as heck aren’t living the life, but I can’t tell if they’re experiencing an agonizing, drawn-out death or an agonizing, never-ending life. Either way, I’d just as soon they’d be done with it. But see, like lots of murderers, I’m actually quite soft-hearted. I can’t bring myself to bring them to the compost heap. No good reason, except that I believe they are only, as Billy Crystal said in The Princess Bride, “Mostly dead.” So I can’t pull the trigger, and here they stay, unconvincingly impersonating plant life. Lately, perhaps in a fit of revenge, one of my favorite plants has turned against me. Walking into my kitchen every morning is becoming a downer. The lucky bamboo that was so happy to see me last summer when I brought it home has taken a turn for the worse. Quite literally. I fear it’s suicidal. It’s not exactly contributing to the feng shui around here. I suppose it’s under a lot of stress, living with a plant murderer and all, and so miserable on my cold kitchen windowsill, it’s twisted itself into an impressive knot. But now it’s heading downward, the wrong way on a one-way street to where the sun don’t shine, about to plunge off the windowsill straight down into the garbage disposal. I’ve seen Little Shop of Horrors and The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. I’m afraid my luck is about to turn and the plants are plotting against me. Something tells me this doesn’t bode well for my ancient and unlucky sewer line. Those plants really know how to hurt a girl.
