Editor’s Letter


The Great Outdoors

id you know that honeysuckles are pink? I didn’t actually EXTRAS know that either — all of the honeysuckles strangling my shrubbery are pale yellow. However, Pantone, that arbiter of color, has declared Honeysuckle Pink this year’s big color. I don’t have a problem with that; I like pink. And I think you’ll see in this issue that we’ve found lots of great things in pink for you from around town. We’ll tell you how to track down those pink things, too. Right here, between the covers of the May/June R•Home, you’ll find a guide to everything you need to fix, change or improve your home. It’s a giant list of stores, craftspeople, designers, landscapers, architects and more. No longer will you be able to claim that you don’t know where to get that ratty chair recovered or who to faux-finish your powder room or how to repair your wrought iron fencing. We have the answers. It’s officially been spring for more than a month, and it’s time to start sprucing up the domicile. For inspiration, you might want to check out the two houses we’re featuring on Page 34 and Page 40. Deanna King, owner of Strawberry Fields Flowers & Gifts, never thought she could be happy anywhere else except the city, but a house in Hanover County changed all of that for her. Its airy, open rooms and rustic modern style gave her new insight into the charms of country living. Mongrel owner Mark Burkett didn’t want to add Tour this house! onto his house to expand its square footage.

MAXIMIZING Peace of Mind

An organized home reduces stress! A growing number of Americans openly agree that clutter in their homes is a source of great anxiety. Moreover, many find their home so disorganized that it prevents them from getting anything done. In addition to revealing how a lack of home organization can cause stress, studies have found that 85% of Americans experience positive benefits as a result of a well organized home. These benefits include: üChaos becomes order üIncreased efficiency and productivity üGreater control over your environment

üReduced stress and frustration üEasier access to your belongings üGreater calmness üGreater convenience and comfort

At Closet Factory, we don’t do custom closets or any custom organization solution the way other companies do. Most will measure your space, and then fit pre-fabricated parts into a few model patterns they’ve built hundreds of times before. While many will call this custom this is not Closet Factory Custom. Closet Factory build real Custom, organization solutions. Closet Factory makes any storage solution work better for you. By starting with an idea no one else does: that every person uses their closet differently. Which is why Closet Factory Designers start from scratch, and don’t build, or install a thing until they see how you live and what you need.

Nicholai Jerome works on a giant hand sculpture for the shop Living.

R•Home: How did you get started working with metal?

Heavy Lifting N i c h o l a i J e r o m e o f S pa r ta n S t u d i o s m a k e s c u s to m m e ta lw o r k p r o j e c t s  By Elizabeth Cogar Batty


Nicholai Jerome: My father had an art business in Texas, and my dad’s side of the family was all Russian immigrants who were ironworkers. I grew up around metalwork tools, and I’ve been scan it building things since I was single digits. I went to community college and took drafting and design, weldGet free app at gettag.mobi ing and metallurgy. See pg. 8 for info I did my first client work when I was working as a DJ and made a sign for Tiki Bob’s Cantina. Since then I’ve made quite a few signs and custom items — one out of an old film reel with a glass top, one out of railroad ties encased in plastic, also end tables and consoles. I also make art pieces, sculpture like the hand I’m working on now for the shop Living (on Grove Avenue).

n a 4,000-square-foot Scott’s Addition space, Nicholai Jerome spends his days bending steel to his will. As owner of Spartan Studios, Jerome is juggling “artistic functionality” projects for both interiors and exteriors of homes and businesses as he works 16 hours daily. It’s an industrious-looking place — layers of dust, noise from tools and music, flying sparks and a slightly organized jumble of works-in-progress, tools and scraps of every kind of metal that might find their way into future projects such as railings, arbors, trellises, kitchen pot and wine racks or patio furniture. It looks a bit chaotic, but the finished products that emerge from the studio feature sleek, clean lines. Clients include Helen Reed of HL Reed Design, the Glave Kocen Gallery, Ruth & Ollie, restaurants like C’est Le Vin and individuals who’ve commissioned objects for their home or garden. You can contact Nicholai Jerome of Spartan Studios at 986-9440 or visit spartanmetalwerks.com.

R•Home: What do you enjoy most about the process?

Jerome: The satisfaction of the finished work, but also the process of having an idea and trying to figure out how to solve the problems of making it happen — the aesthetics, functionality and strength. And the tools … torches, wrenches, angle grinders, plasma cutters, and I even have a light saber! R•Home: What do you find most challenging?

Jerome: Other than the heavy lifting? I suppose

trying to be as exact as I can — no tolerances. I’d say my tolerance is down to about a 1/16th, but I want it to be zero, that is, no variation from perfect. When you’re doing work by hand with old techniques, it’s difficult. But motivation is a big part of what keeps me at it. I love what I do. R•Home: Who works with you?

Jerome: I have three apprentices right now. It’s a very collaborative process. I do most of the design work, and they are learning how to do the metalwork. Also, my father [Rick Smith] makes stained glass here, and [seamstress] Lilly Evelet and glassblower Scarlett Colyer share the space, too. R•Home: What do you aspire to do?

Jerome: Bigger things. Have a bigger company, a complete shop with carpentry, masonry, glass, welding, all to produce fine art pieces. I’d love to have a team of artisans go with me to do art pieces and projects around the world. I love design, and I love architecture. I’d like to make things that will be appreciated, serve a purpose and be around for a very, very long time.

Best Back Porch in Richmond ENJOYING FOUR SEASONS OF THE “BIG WILD”  By Kris Spisak

hen Tasha Tolliver and Raymond McKinney moved into their University of Richmond-area home, they were relocating from the Fan District. Their two daughters, who were used to playing on sidewalks and in small neighborhood parks, looked into their new backyard with awe. Beyond a grassy lawn, the yard sloped gently down before rising to a wooded hill, full of songbirds in the summertime and scurrying squirrels in the fall. The girls dubbed their new yard the “Big Wild.” The house had a small back deck when they moved in, but Tolliver says, “This yard warranted more.” She grew up with a large Victorian back 

Porch cont’d

“This is ourr second living living room, ourr mai main n hanging out spot. We absolutely love it.”  TASHA TOLLIVER

Down the handsomely angled back steps, it’s an easy transition from relaxation to play for the whole family, including their dog, Polo.

porch in Mullens, W.Va. She knew the beauty of a space where one could be surrounded by fresh air and natural light, while still enjoying the cozy comforts of home. “I wanted a space like that for our family,” she says. Built in 1930 by noted architect Edward Jones, their brick Cape Cod had already been renovated in the 1980s, nearly doubling its size at that time. Taking the “Big Wild” that they looked out upon as their inspiration, the family hired Morgan Pierce of Grace Street Home Additions (now at 3North) to take on another expansion. This renovation, just like the one before, was dedicated to maintaining the historic style of the home. Segmented archways and columns echo Edward Jones’ original vision. Dark hardwood floors made of ipe wood from South America sets a tone of graceful simplicity. “Whatever was added on needed to feel organic with what was there already,” Tolliver says. The original deck was extended and covered, and in addition to that openair space, a screened porch was added

with doors connecting it both to the rest of the porch and to the kitchen, creating a new circular flow. With fi nishing touches added by Kat Liebschwager, co-owner of Ruth & Ollie in Carytown and owner of Kat Liebschwager Interiors, the new screened porch found a perfect balance of traditional and modern style, comfort and distinction. In the fall, McKinney watches football on their porch, during the last warm days of the season. This past year, as Christmas snow fell, the family watched the fl akes swirl from the covered back porch, surrounded by heat lamps and blankets. “The only problem was that we had to keep running out

for more fuel for the heaters,” says Tolliver. “It was so nice that we just didn’t want to go inside.” “This is our second living room, our main hanging out spot. We absolutely love it.” And who wouldn’t want to spend time on such a back porch, surrounded by the “Big Wild” and all the comforts of home? The end result has become the family’s favorite part of the house — a room used all four seasons of the year.

Mossy & Moldy MY BRAIN IN 3-D  By Maureen Egan


he sun shines, blossoms bounce in a soft breeze, and a hammock beckons. A painting of Eden has inspired me to write poetic picturebook lines more than once: Down at the creek, water wanders, tadpoles tickle toes, and feet feel cool… Down at the creek, dragonflies dance, butterflies balance, and no bees sting. Oh, enough with the italics — I know what it’s really like out there! There’s no rhyme or reason to my yard’s state of disarray, so my figurative bubble bursts once I spend more than a few minutes outside and actually look at what’s going on in my yard — or maybe that’s just my brain exploding. Going out in my yard makes me confront the evidence that I haven’t followed through on any of my 47 plans for transplanting, transforming and transcending in 304 easy steps. I live in fear that my yard is a 3-D version of my brain — creative, clumsy and cluttered — with the added attractions of leaf mold and bugs. That makes walking through my yard akin to walking through my brain; it’s too psychedelic and chaotic for my taste. Get me out of here! My poetic self dabbles in fantasy, half-remembered bliss, idylls in the outdoors. The more prosaic me sighs a lot and utters lines not suitable for children. I hang my head at my disheveled front yard — I call it nouveau mess — that looks like it leads to the Clampetts’ backyard. I’m waiting for inspiration; I swear a lot. In the meantime, our old minivan parked just so hides the worst

of it from the neighbors. Since when does a dirty and dented 2001 minivan not connote curb appeal? My yard has its good points, as does my mind. They both respond well to a concerted round of raking out beds, but then one thing leads to another and trouble starts. I might discover a hand tool that I lost a season or two ago in the vinca major, so that makes me happy, but I just as often lose the tool that I mean to use in the present, so that makes me insane. With paths and a creek and several levels, my yard looks like someone planned it and then gave up. It’s not so much that looks are deceiving, but looking invariably leads to perceiving problems and conceiving new projects. There are well-intentioned endeavors, and then there are the “Well, what the hell was she thinking?!” variety. At best, they’re almost always unfi nished, which is often just as well. I tend toward the whimsical (read: wacko), and my husband tends toward the practical (read: boring). When perhaps I should be outside watering or problem-solving or propping up an eroding hill, instead I get distracted by a fallen branch that is awesome! It’s perfect for something. It looks like an animal’s skull and would make a fantastic sculptural mailbox at the dilapidated treehouse over there. So off I go, possibly led astray by leftover shards of fl agstone that would make a classic and cool mini-Stonehenge in another desolate section of the yard. They really would. Too bad there’s no app for that. It’s no wonder my husband is afraid to pick up sticks and stones in the yard; it’s difficult even for me to distinguish my artsy collections from the fi rewood and junk piles. I must give myself credit where it is due, though. My grow-my-own pine-straw plan —throw pinecones willy-nilly along paths and hope for the best — is working. A couple of loblolly pines have jumped up alongside the paths where pine straw belongs. That they are Charlie Brown Christmas tree-esque charms me enough that I believe the project is successful, even though the four needles of pine straw they will drop will never relieve me of my (and my dutiful brother-in-law’s) annual pine-straw retrieval duties. My ivy extermination project is going about as expected, too. It’s going to kill me. The key to it has been giving up all hope. Putting that into effect streamlined the process. The ivy has won. It decimated the vinca minor that hugged those hills for decades, but it couldn’t hang on through a series of droughts. That damned ivy is better at following through than I am. I might as well just sit this spring out — or in — and catch up on my writing: Down in my yard, ivy attacks, pricker bushes zing, sewer line cracks, and bees do sting.

I live in fear that my yard is a 3-D version of my brain — creative, clumsy and cluttered.

Harry's History

The Daniel Call House on West Grace Street

Call Collected t h e m a n y fa c e s o f t h e daniel call house  By Harry Kollatz Jr.


he clapboard house at 217 W. Grace St. was built in 1794, while Thomas Jefferson and George Washington still lived — but on the southeast corner of Ninth and Broad. And therein lies our story. John Hopkins, United States commissioner of loans, lived at the northwest corner of Seventh and Broad streets and constructed the house nearby as investment property. Its first occupant was French national Jean-August Marie Chevallié. He came to Virginia during the Revolution as a (possibly secret) agent for Pierre Beaumarchais, watchmaker, writer, musician and spy. Chevallié soon prospered in the renowned Richmond milling business. Daniel Call lived in the house from 1798 to 1820. Call was a student of George Wythe, John Marshall’s brother-in-law and a lawyer of distinction. Also among Wythe’s pupils were Jefferson and Henry Clay. Call married Wythe’s niece Elizabeth Taliaferro (pronounced “Tolliver” in Ruchmund-ese). She died in 1793 following the birth of their daughter Anne. In May 1797 he wed Lucy Nel-

son Ambler, sister-in-law of attorney and statesman John Marshall. Call handled cases involving Virginia’s elite. He also voluntarily recorded the precedents of court proceedings and began publishing them as books in 1801. Besides Call’s intellectual pursuits, he was also known for the size of his gob. Call’s mouth was so large that his great-grandson recalled, “If he yawns, you’re gone by God!” After Call moved out in 1820, he kept the house as rental property until his death in 1840. Mann S. Valentine I bought the site and later sold “one wooden house” to Alexander Brooks, $169 for the house and $1.25 for the fence. Brooks rolled the house

Call’s Quoits Daniel Call also belonged, with father-in-law John Marshall, to the “Quoits Club,” a group of 25 prominent men who biweekly met at a shady spring north of Broad and just west of Hancock Street. Club co-founder the Rev. John Buchanan owned the property. They feasted on barbecue roasted at the site, consumed mint juleps and engaged in hurling brass rings at pegs, a game similar to horseshoes called Quoits. Club rules forbade the membership to speak of politics.

up Grace Street to Madison. The family lived there for decades. The house in 1883 became the property of All Saints Episcopal Church. Various private schools during 1888 to 1936 held classes there, including those taught by author and women’s rights activist Mary Johnston. During the early 1900s, the Call house became a gathering place for the Richmond Art Club and was saved in 1906 when All Saints trustee Peter Mayo was dissuaded from tearing it down. Extensive interior alteration and modernization was required in 1936 by the Frank A. Bliley Funeral Home. The mortuary left around 1981. The building then housed Alexander Dean clothiers and later the Medical College of Virginia Pre-Natal Health Center. Today, as they did in the past, the floors resound with running young feet and walls echo with children’s laughter. The Richmond Preparatory Christian Academy convened its kindergarten classes there in 2006. Though uprooted, moved and made over, the Call House’s history demonstrates the colorful life of an old house allowed to endure.

realize that I’m in the minority, but the appearance of these six-legged denizens of our gardens and parks after a long, cold, drab winter is akin to seeing old friends. For others, the spring emergence of insects marks the continuation of a battle that’s been waged for centuries. Gardeners worry that uncontrolled populations of insects will inflict untold damage to their favorite plants. Marketing firms selling pesticides reinforce these concerns by spending millions of dollars annually to remind us that bugs are bad, and the only good bug is a dead one. We talk about “good” and “bad” insects as if they represent a natural dichotomy, but our relationship to insects is complex and should be considered within a broader ecological context. “Beneficial” and “pest” are

more applicable terms when considering insects and their direct impact on our lives. Beneficial insects can provide us with useful services or products, such as lady beetles (1 ) eating aphids or silkworms producing silk. European honeybees usually top the list of beneficial insects thanks to their pollination services, and honey and wax production. But the job of pollinating native plants usually falls on species indigenous to North America, such as the bumblebee (2 ). Unfortunately, all bees are in trouble these days due to a perfect storm of habitat loss, pesticide use, disease and parasitic mites. In addition, there is the decline of native pollen and nectar sources in today’s gardens and parks. There are many other kinds of beneficial insects right outside our doors. Black soldier flies (3 ) are wasp-like insects that don’t bite or sting. Just the name “fly” is enough for some folks to dismiss them all as pests. However, the adults are frequently seen in gardens resting on plants and walls, while their flattened and leathery larvae lead more secretive and subterranean lives breaking down compost and mulch. Paper wasps (4 ) are another much-maligned garden insect and deserve a second look. Yes, they sometimes build their nests in inconvenient places near doors and windows — and are quite capable of defending their nest location with painful stings. But they spend much of 

their time scouring gardens and woods not only for nectar, but also for other insects, many considered pests. These wasps mash up their prey with powerful jaws and offer them up as food to their larvae suspended upside down in the nest. The benefit of insects goes beyond what they eat or don’t eat and can be purely aesthetic. Butterflies (5 ) are always crowd-pleasers and don’t suffer the stigma of most insects. But it’s easy to overlook their plant-munching offspring as they flit from flower to flower to sip nectar. Even the boldly marked fenneland parsley-eating caterpillars (6 ) of the black swallowtail butterfly can inspire respect when they defensively expand their stinky fluorescent orange osmeterium (which looks like thick antennae) in a gesture of defiance. No Richmond summer would be complete without the choruses of crickets and katydids, and the buzzing and wails of amorous male cicadas. The heavy pulsing drone of the northern dusk singing cicada (7 ), the largest and arguably loudest singing insect in Virginia, fills the air just as the sun shines its last for the day. The challenge for us is to transform 7 northern dusk-singing our fear and cicada, Tibicen auletes (Germar) loathing of insects into at least a modicum of appreciation and respect. By knowing more about the multilegged “enemy,� most people can develop a grudging respect, if not a full-blown admiration for insects. By taking the time to get to know some of the species that share our spaces, we can begin to see how most insects benefit our lives materially and aesthetically, and increase our enjoyment of Richmond’s natural heritage.

To get away from distractions and become more independent. I wanted to focus on my grades and my goals.

2.) What do you think is the advantage of coming to Blue Ridge School?

The small class sizes. With only eight other students in class, it is easier to ask questions. My teachers make sure I understand before we go on to something new. I actually get algebra now.

From the Fan to the country By Valley Haggard Photos by Adam Ewing Styled by Wendy Umanoff

Before she moved to western Hanover County in July 2009, Deanna King had never seen a tick before. Or the thick nest of burrs that she spent two hours picking out of the fur of her golden Labradoodle. “What in the world are these?” she wondered. “I’ve always lived in a suburb or a city,” King says. “The country was so new to me. It’s been a really eye-opening experience.” Originally from Rochester, N.Y., King had been a Fan resident since 1990 and the owner

of Strawberry Fields Flowers and Gifts on Strawberry Street since 2005. Leaving the city wasn’t exactly on her to-do list. But when a house she’d seen on a winding country drive was still on the market a year later — and for half the original selling price — she and her husband thought, “‘It must be meant to be.’ We live crazy like that — we just let things fly.” Their house in the Fan sold quickly, and after purchasing the 3,500-square-foot house that they coined a “coun-

try cape,” they moved in a few months later. Set amid 12 acres of sprawling woods that include an historic mill built in 1735, the home was built in 2006. “That was a point of contention, because we love old houses,” says Deanna. “We decided to come in and give it enough character to make it feel older.” Although she loved the open living room space that boasts 18-foot ceilings and a view of a waterfall at the intersection of Bull Creek and New Found River, she wasn’t a huge fan of the skylight and Palladian windows, which she felt made the house look dated. “I guess you’re trying to bring in modern and new but mix it with old, too,” says Deanna. “I like modern, but I don’t like everything modern.” To increase the rustic feel, she bought an eclectic mix of furniture from Sheppard Street Antiques. She also added a stone fireplace and hired Eric Schmoldt of Advantage Construction to design molding for

every room and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Schmoldt also did repair work on the mill, which King felt was her responsibility to maintain. Prior to purchase, the new house had been finished but never lived in, and there was more work to be done. “The whole inside was just blank — undone,” says King. With minimal lighting, no yard, no driveway and an exterior that had been primed but never painted, they expanded the house and completed a number of finishing touches. Recessed lighting, concrete countertops and new kitchen fixtures were installed. They renovated the upstairs bathroom and painted the in-

yard into a space that’s more amenable for entertaining. In the meantime, King has been soaking up the benefits of country life. “I get the best of both worlds,” she says. “I’m downtown all day, but it’s great to come home because it’s so peaceful. It’s pretty and relaxing. When we were in the Fan, we never really went outside. We just didn’t have the luxury — we’d go walking, but it’s not the same.” Recently she and her husband took a walk to a 300acre farm that breeds Arabian horses near their house. “I’d never had that experience before,” she says. “Being out here has made me become more of an animal lover. I thought ‘Oh my God, a pregnant horse?’ It’s been awesome.” 

terior walls in off-white shades. “In the Fan, I felt that every room had to be a color. Now, I’m in my neutral phase. The orange bathroom is the most colorful thing downstairs. Orange has been my favorite color since I was a little kid. I had to have something!” Designer and home stylist Wendy Umanoff (who also styled the R•Home photo shoot for the story) helped Deanna achieve her goal of striking a balance between the old and the new. “Wendy’s a little bit of everything,” says King. “What was great is that she and I could work together.” Umanoff walked King through the process of designing a custommade dining room table at Van Jester Woodworks in Scott’s Addition; she also helped King with color, fabric and furniture selections for the house, often bringing samples by for her to see while King was working at Strawberry Fields. Although King has made substantial progress toward perfecting her haven in the country, she’s not done yet. “It’s still a work in progress,” says King. “We really like to look at art and find pieces. There are still a lot of empty walls around here.” In addition to collecting more artwork, she plans to renovate the master bathroom and is in conversations with an architectural landscape firm about transforming the back-

Mongrel’s Mark Burkett nearly doubled the footprint of his home with outdoor rooms By Megan Marconyak Photos by Barry Fitzgerald

A bright red front door peeking through a mission-style gate is the first indicator that Mark Burkett and Jay Pearson’s Westover Hills home has plenty of personality. The copper gate, made by Cathy Vaughn to cut through a “living” ivy fence, reveals a hint of the interior’s splashy style that’s otherwise hidden from the street. Burkett, co-owner of Carytown’s Mongrel and two chocolate-and-stationery shops called chocolatepaper in Roanoke, has a bold, sharply defined aesthetic,

which is reflected throughout his home, yard and garden. In 1992, Burkett moved into his Cape Cod home, which was built in 1949. Over the years, he has left the house’s structure mostly intact. He redid his kitchen when he first moved in, and it’s on tap for another update this year. He also removed an old furnace and added a natural gas heating system and fireplace, along with central air. “I like 1950s mid-century modern. It was such a simple pe-

Mark Burkett has moved taste-wise from white walls to deeper, stronger colors. “It adds warmth and just gives me a good feeling,” he says.

Cabinets made from old windows set off Burkett’s collections of glass and Fiestaware. He added French doors to bring the outdoors inside.

Italian vases from the 1950s and 1960s (with a few from the ’20s and ’30s) are displayed on the mantel in his living room, which, like most of the rooms in his house, features small lamps. “I like accent lights instead of an overhead glare, and I use a lot of dimmers,” he says. “Every room has three or four lamps in the corners.” Upstairs are two bedrooms and one bath, and Burkett and Pearson use the entire floor as a master suite. The larger bedroom contains a bed, dressers and a desk; they transformed the second bedroom into a walk-in closet, with hanging racks and one wall lined with four sleek, black dressers from La Différence. “Every woman who comes into this house loves that room,” says Burkett. Over time, he’s changed the wall colors. “I used to have white

riod,” Burkett says. He mixes mission and mid-century pieces together throughout his home. “I like the color, I like the lines and I like the style,” he says. Burkett showcases his collection of pink elephant glassware from the 1950s in one of two lighted corner shelves made out of old windows in the dining room. “It’s just fun stuff,” he says. “It’s the thing that got me started collecting.” On the opposite wall, Fiestaware also is displayed in a glass cabinet made from old windows, and a large glass dining-room table from La Différence fills the center of the room. “I like the clear glass with so much other stuff going on in here.” Burkett also collects paintings by Carlo of Hollywood, and they fill the house with their trapezoid-shaped frames. He found the first one at an antiques mall. “The asymmetrical frame caught my eye,” he says. After that, he kept looking for more. He’s found Carlo’s work in a variety of different mediums, but despite searching for years, he hasn’t been able to find much information on the artist. “I think Carlo sketched the originals, then other people finished them,” he says. Today he has about 35 Carlo paintings displayed throughout his house. He also used to collect paintby-numbers paintings and still displays a few favorites in his dining and living rooms. The rest of the other 300 or so are stored away.

walls, then I went to gray,” he says. Now, most of the walls in his home are painted in strong colors, like the gold in his living room and the teal in his glassed-in porch. “It adds warmth and just gives me a good feeling,” he says. “The colors also change with the sun throughout the day.” When Burkett first enclosed the patio, he replaced the screens with old glass window panels from a friend’s 1950s house. After he upgraded to weatherproof glass, he moved the glass panels to an adjacent space to create one of several outdoor living areas. “I left it rough and let it peel,” he

says. “It sets the boundaries for the outdoor room.” Although Burkett loves his home, he sometimes wishes the rooms were bigger, and that’s inspired him to add space by creating those outdoor living areas. His house is 1,500 square feet, and he’s added about 1,100 square feet of decking and outdoor rooms. When he moved in, the only thing behind the house was a brick patio. Burkett has added three seating areas with pergolas and ceiling fans, a koi pond, extensive gardens, and two cottage sheds for storage. Light and a view of the outdoors is one of the most important elements throughout Burkett’s home. “I love light coming in, and bringing the outside inside,” he says. He replaced the double window in his dining room with a set of French double doors, which has become one of his favorite elements of the house. “Weather-permitting, the doors are always open.” 

front gate The mission-style front gate, made of copper piping by Cathy Vaughn, cuts through a “living” ivy fence.

WALK-IN CLOSET Upstairs, a second bedroom was turned into a walk-in closet. One wall is lined with black dressers from La Différence.


Art lines the stairway leading to the second floor.

The master bedroom is filled with works by Carlo of Hollywood. “The asymmetrical frame caught my eye,” he says of the first one he found.




season eats Kendra Feather cooks up easy vegetarian dishes that take advantage of spring’s bounty. by brandon fox | photos by kip dawkins | styled by marcie blough

May and June are bursting with berries like the ones in this cocktail (top left) and spring greens like the baby spinach (just below), along with all-yearround cherry tomatoes that you can combine with black-eyed peas (far right ).

Don’t scream, all of you unrepentant carnivores out there. Vegetarianism isn’t as horrifying as you think. “I’ve always felt the main reason people were resistant to it was because [vegetarian food] was marketed poorly,” says Kendra Feather, owner of Ipanema Café and Garnett’s Café. “Vegetarian food is often linked to animalrights activism, which some people find very aggressive. PETA has made some terrible choices in the past that did more harm than good to the vegetarian cause.” Feather opened her vegetarian restaurant, Ipanema Café, nearly 20 years ago. “I discovered vegetarian cuisine through a cookbook called Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison,” Feather says. “To this day, it’s still my favorite and so is she. I’ve never been a vegetarian — I have been more of a pescatarian for most of my life.” In his 2008 book In Defense of Food, best-selling author Michael Pollan exhorts: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Finally, people seem to be

listening. The popularity of vegetarianism is on the upswing, and veganism, or a diet that avoids all animal products including eggs and dairy, has seen a surge as well, partially because of its appeal as a weightloss technique. “Honestly,” says Feather, “you can sell anything in America if you appeal to people’s vanity. Tell them that it will make them skinny and look younger and voilà! A perfect example is the Skinny Bitch book. It’s a vegan diet written by a former model (Kim Barnouin, along with Rory Freedman).

The menu created by Kendra Feather (above right ) captures the taste of springtime in dishes like Dijon-crusted tofu (at left), fresh asparagus topped with a golden fried egg (below left) and bright green creamed spinach (below right).

That would have been an impossible concept 12 years ago.” Yet despite its growing popularity, vegetarian food can be a hard sell to the committed and occasionally defiant meatlover. “You cannot reproduce the taste of animal fat,” says Feather. “The taste of roasted fennel to me is like the flavor of sausage, but the depth of flavor added by the fat is missing.” How to solve that problem? Feather says to “learn how to develop layers of flavor without that fat. Shallots and olive oil. 50

m a y - j u n e 2 011

White wine reduction with a bay leaf. Little tricks like that help give a flavor boost.” With this in mind, you’ll find a menu created by Feather for a springtime vegetarian dinner party on the next page. Strawberries, asparagus and greens — these are the fruits and vegetables of May and June. Most of the ingredients can be found at farmers markets right now. Best of all, the recipes are easy, accessible and delicious — even for the novice or parttime vegetarian. 

Recipes Sautéed Asparagus with Shaved Parmesan and Fried Yard Egg

Creamed Spinach

A yard egg comes from a yard bird. Translation: a chicken egg comes from a chicken. Any eggs can be used, but those bought directly from a farm are fresher and taste a lot better. ingredients  1 large bunch of asparagus, the woody ends snapped off

 1 tablespoon of butter  1 clove garlic, minced  Parmesan cheese

 1 egg  Salt and pepper to taste

directions Boil a large pot of salted water and blanch the asparagus until it softens and turns bright green (about 2 to 3 minutes). Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium cast-iron pan and sauté the garlic until fragrant. Drain the asparagus and throw it in the pan with the butter and garlic, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until al dente, then remove it. In the same pan, adding more butter if needed, fry the egg. Arrange the asparagus on a plate and shave Parmesan cheese over it to taste, and top with the fried egg.

Skillet Mustard Tofu

ingredients  1 block of extra-firm tofu  2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard  1 tablespoon of olive oil  Salt and pepper to taste directions Cut the tofu into thin slices. Smear each slice of tofu on one side with the mustard (similar to the way that you’d spread mustard on bread for a sandwich). Add the olive oil to a medium cast-iron skillet and get it super hot. Add the tofu slices, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and sear until they’re good and crisp. Flip them over. Sear. Serve immediately.

ingredients  1 pound of baby spinach  1 tablespoon of butter  1 clove of garlic, minced  2 shallots, minced  2 to 4 tablespoons of heavy cream, to taste  Pinch of nutmeg directions Melt the butter in a pan. When it bubbles, add the spinach, minced garlic and shallots. Stir until the greens begin to wilt. Add the heavy cream and a pinch of nutmeg. Stir until the cream is heated through and serve.

Sautéed Black-eyed Peas, Cherry Tomatoes and Yard Onions over Corn Grits

Yard onions are just what you think they are — those wild onions persistently growing in almost everyone’s yard. Chives can be substituted. ingredients  1 cup of stone-ground grits (Byrd Mill Co. in Ashland makes very good grits)  4 cups of vegetable stock or water  Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of butter 1 clove of garlic, minced 1 dry pint of cherry tomatoes 1 can of black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed  1 tablespoon of olive oil    

 Pinch of cumin  1 sprig of fresh thyme, leaves minced  1 tablespoon of yard onions (or chives), chopped

directions Bring the stock or water to a boil and add the grits. Turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the grits are nice and thick. Add the butter, salt and pepper, and stir until well combined. In a medium cast-iron skillet, gently heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant. Sprinkle with a pinch of cumin and add all of the other ingredients, except for the yard onions, to the pan and then sauté until the cherry tomatoes are on the verge of bursting. To serve, top the grits with the cherry tomatoes and black-eyed peas. Sprinkle with the chopped yard onions.

Lace Johnny Cake with Honey, Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream

The Other Brandon Cocktail

ingredients  1 cup of stone-ground cornmeal  1 1/4 cups of water  1/2 teaspoon of salt  2 teaspoons of vegetable oil

ingredients  2 ounces of Catoctin Creek Roundstone rye whiskey (smallbatch rye made in Loudoun County)  1 slice of orange

 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries  Dollop of whipped cream  Wildflower honey, to taste (Bearer Farms in Oilville is a local producer)

directions In a bowl, mix the stone-ground cornmeal with water. Stir in the salt. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium skillet and drop the batter by spoonfuls to make silver dollar-sized circles. The batter is so thin that it will cook quickly, and the edges will look lacy. Wait until the edges brown and bubbles appear on top. Flip it and cook until the other side is done. Place the Johnny cakes on a plate, drizzle them with wildflower honey and top them with sliced strawberries and whipped cream.

By Brandon Peck

 4 or 5 fresh blackberries
  1 tablespoon of wildflower honey  6 fresh mint leaves
  Soda water

directions Dilute the honey with a little hot water (you want to dissolve the honey or otherwise it will seize when the ice hits it). Add the berries, the mint and the orange slice. Muddle in a cocktail shaker. Add cracked ice and the rye whiskey. Shake, then pour over fresh ice that you’ve added to a cocktail glass, and top with soda water. Garnish with a skewered blackberry and orange twist or mint leaves.

amassed the most points for writing, art, photography and presentation in the specialty publication division. VENUS AND CUPID, by Artemisia Gentileschi (Italian), 1625. This oil-on-canvas painting was acquired in 2001.Gentileschi painted independent women who suffer but are celebrated for their courage and beauty. After she accused her art tutor of rape, she was put in thumbscrews, a test to determine her claim’s veracity. Her attacker served some jail time. Just 53 Gentileschi paintings are known, and five are in public collections in the United States.

n April 15, 1910, around 3 p.m., a motorcade of more than 30 vehicles bearing officials and dignitaries of the city of Manchester crossed the James River into Richmond. The motorcade converged on City Hall, and a formally dressed assembly of the city’s administrators, as well as

business and civic leaders, met the delegation on the steps. The auspicious occasion was the unifying of Manchester and Richmond into one city after an April 4 referendum. Of Manchester’s 9,715 residents, 513 voted for annexation, 224 against. (In 1910, neither blacks nor women could cast a ballot). There’d been talk of consolidat-

William T. “Booster Bill” Dabney, a member of the Richmond Board of Aldermen, went door-to-door advocating annexation in Manchester.

The councils of both cities adopted ordinances for annexation in 1909; it would be known as Washington Ward. Then, on that somewhat chilly April 1910 afternoon, Manchester’s long-serving Mayor Henry A. Maurice presented Richmond’s Mayor David Crockett Richardson with a large red, white and blue floral “key to the city” emblazoned with a “Greater Richmond” banner.

SPLOTCH #22, Sol LeWitt (American), 2007. The last sculpture LeWitt made, thus unseen by the public. The 8-feet-high, colorful fiberglass piece welcomes visitors in the new atrium. John B. Ravenal, the Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, says it’s like a “hallucination of mountain peaks.”

Talk about house tour success. Days before the West Grace Street Association’s Candlelight Home Tour, event chairman Pam Embrey had to change her voicemail message. “Sorry, we’re sold out,” it stated.

Plenty of classically proportioned rooms, carved staircases and rich moldings were on view. “But it’s the food and wine pairings that set this home tour apart,” said volunteer Julie Harrison. Chefs from neighborhood restaurants — Cucina, Gus’ Bar and Grill, The Camel, The Empress and Emilio’s Restaurante

Español — served up their food in person. Avenue 805, Belmont Butchery, Kuba Kuba, The Republic and Brownies by Teresa also participated, and wines from Barboursville Vineyards were featured. Eclectic décor set the tour apart as well. The Talavera farmhouse at 1835 W. Grace St. inspired visitors with its 19th century plaster ceiling in 

Talavera is also called the “Poe House,” referencing Edgar Allan Poe’s frequent visits in the summer of 1849 (he died in the fall of the same year). “This has become our signature event,” says Tom Griffi n, president of the West Grace Street Association. “It shares what we have, and the changes we’ve achieved, with the rest of the city.” An urban renaissance was on full display that night. Plans for next year’s tour are already under way, and the date’s been set: Feb. 11, 2012.

Gary Waugh of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation


R•Home: What’s the program’s primary purpose? Waugh: Plant More Plants is all about planting trees, shrubs and perennials that will prevent runoff, filter rain as it comes down, slow the flow of rain water and result in less runoff or erosion. R•Home: Are there particular plants you encourage or discourage under the program?

Sometimes More is Better P l a n t M or e P l a n ts ’ p l a n for h om e ow n e rs to h e l p c l e a n u p t h e C h e sap e a k e B a y  By Sara Jackson

When it comes to cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay, only one target group’s pollution rates are still on the rise. And it’s not farmers or industrial sites or commercial/manufacturing plants. It’s average urban and suburban homeowners. While pollution rates for most other groups have been declining for the past decade, urban and suburban storm-water runoff has continued to rise, says Gary Waugh, spokesman for the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation in Richmond. So state conservation officials kicked off a new initiative focused squarely on John Q. Homeowner. The Plant More Plants program launched on March 7 in partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. We asked Waugh to outline the program’s basic premise and how Richmond gardeners can help. 94

m a y - j u n e 2 011

Waugh: There’s a list of preferred plants on the Plant MorePlants.com website. We definitely encourage planting of native plants, but they don’t have to be. One thing we do discourage, though, is invasive plants like kudzu. And we’re not encouraging annuals, either. They don’t usually have the deep root systems or the ability to slow water runoff like shrubs or perennials. The website also has a list of nurseries, landscape designers and other participants in the program who can help homeowners find the right plants for their landscapes. We even have a set of sample plans for creating gardens in corners, hedgerows, alongside driveways and other areas. R•Home: Are there parts of the average yard that are better suited to these types of plantings? Waugh: We’re encouraging homeowners to plant perennials along slopes to help catch runoff and filter it. Also near hardscape surfaces like roofs, driveways, sidewalks, etc.

R•Home: Are there any established gardens in town where homeowners can get ideas on which plants to plant more of ... and where? Waugh: The State Capitol is revamping its front gardens to reduce storm-water runoff, add a rain garden and other conservation efforts. Also, the Science Museum of Virginia is completing a number of garden projects this spring. Being an old railroad station, there is a tremendous amount of pavement and hard surfaces that can result in runoff. Also, take a look at the Second Presbyterian Church on Fifth Street. Within the last year, they redid their garden and playground there as a rain garden. It was one of the first in Richmond, and they’ve won several awards for their work there. R•Home: How did you come up with the “plant more plants” concept? Waugh: People are staying at home and using more of their disposable income around the house. So the timing seemed right to say, “Do this to improve your living space, make your backyard into an oasis ... and by the way, it’ll help clean up the bay.” We know the TV ads are a little over-the-top. One of our ads is “out-Jones the Joneses” by planting more plants. We had a little fun with that. People are very proud of their homes and how they look. We wanted to appeal to the pride that people take in their landscaping.

“We’re encouraging homeowners to plant perennials along slopes to help catch runoff.”  Gary waugh
