A View to Remember By Kirsten E. Silven Photography by Walt Roycraft

When Jamie and Mike Franklin first bought this home on ¼ acre just south of downtown Lexington 27 years ago, they knew it would be an excellent place to raise their growing family and planned to stay for about five years, but over time the couple fell in love with the house… And, of course, the grounds! “The garden took shape and evolved over time,” shared Jamie. “When we moved in there were hardly any plantings or trees and no fence.” Today, the garden is truly a labor of love for Jamie and Mike, who began working on it as a way to be outside close to their children, but ultimately developed a keen affection for the task that kept them going long after the kids had left the nest.

3 1 Architectural salvage on the fence adds a sense of structure and visual interest to this garden vignette, which also features baby tears and ferns to add texture and greenery to the space. 2 The Four Seasons grace this classical garden space, which also features an impressive wall of Limelight hydrangeas, mature English boxwoods and peonies, as well as creeping Jenny and creeping thyme for groundcover, and yellow roses with a few annuals in terra cotta planters to add pops of color. 3 Up close and personal, the beauty of this Nikko Blue hydrangea is breathtaking to behold.

The lot backs up to the University of Kentucky Arboretum and has matured into a beautifully designed space with a variety of separate outdoor “rooms” that are ideal for entertaining, relaxing and quiet contemplation. Both the house and the outdoor spaces have been the focus of several extensive remodeling projects, including a new addition for the home and many changes for the garden layout. The result is nothing short of exquisite, with a hardy foundation of green and white tones that includes mature English boxwoods, many varieties of hydrangeas, peonies and hollies, accented here and there by pops of color from potted annuals, pink and yellow roses, peonies and Nikko Blue hydrangeas. Originally, the home itself was red brick, but the couple opted to paint it a stunning sage color that has prompted several passersby to stop and enquire about its origin. As a professional designer by trade, Mike is attracted to the possibilities offered by using hardscape as a tool for making the design appear “finished” and he has worked to give the garden definition with a hint of formality. www.kentuckyhomesandgardens.com

4 Peering through an arbor covered in wisteria, this shows the smaller of two circular areas in the garden, revolving around an armillary sculpture on a pedestal are a number of mature English boxwoods, limestone hardscape, oak leaf hydrangeas and hollies, while pink New Dawn roses adorn the other arbor, which is just visible across the expanse of lush green lawn. 5 A study in elegance and thoughtful design, the home’s rear lawn is mostly a green-and-white dream with a few other colors added here and there, often to celebrate holidays or special occasions. Major plantings include mature English boxwoods and limestone hardscape, creating a framework for the other plantings, which include many varieties of hydrangea, peonies, daffodils and wisteria, as well as lilies, baptisia and summer phlox. 6 Here, the side of the garage is painted a cool sky-blue hue, while a substantial wrought iron sculpture adds visual interest and a fountain lends a whimsical touch to the space. 7 This view looks over the beautifully manicured rear lawn from under a pergola and patio that leads into the home through a set of French doors. The cut limestone hardscape creates a striking base for the design, which includes a decorative urn upon a pedestal surrounded by English boxwoods as a center focal point, an ornamental Japanese maple and plenty of hydrangeas, including Nikko Blue, Blushing Bride, Endless Summer and Limelight varieties.

14

5 8 As part of a walkway that is laid out in a “T” pattern, this is just one of two benches found in this section of the garden, which creates a quiet place to relax or enjoy some tea or a glass of wine. The topiaries are all quite symmetrical in this area, which has a classical feel and is defined by mature English boxwoods and yellow roses, as well as creeping Jenny and thyme groundcover. 9 Situated on the home’s back porch, this gardener’s rack is functional, but also adds a charming touch to the look and feel of the space, while the personalized placard was a gift from the homeowner’s sister.

8 There are also different areas of sun and shade, along with plenty of things to discover, including hidden pathways and a number of seating areas, as well as whimsical garden statuary and a few pieces of architectural salvage, which lend a slight rustic feel to certain areas. The garden also produces blooms throughout the spring and summer seasons, thanks to a careful selection of perennials that continue to provide color and texture year after year. “I love blooming flowers,” Jamie revealed. “We share them with friends and neighbors, and can always bring them inside to cheer up any room.” Although this garden might have started small, it has definitely grown into something truly special, offering a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life and a place to gather with family and friends for years to come.

WHAT’S COOKING IN KENTUCKY

1

Explore the

Culinary Artistry of

Proof on Main

By Kirsten E. Silven Photography Courtesy of Proof on Main As one of the premiere dining spots in Louisville—indeed the entire region—Proof on Main has received an impressive list of accolades and is located in the city’s famed 21c Museum Hotel. As such, the restaurant and bar always feature rotating contemporary art exhibitions curated by 21c, which serves as a perfect complement to the restaurant’s culinary artistry. “We focus a lot on kitchen culture; how we treat each other, our food and the environment around us,” shared Chef Mike Wajda, who hails from Kinsman, Ohio, where he grew up in a family that always had a home-cooked meal on the table. “This has a direct reflection not only on the plate, but the guest experience as well.” A favorite among locals and visitors alike, Proof on Main is located in the heart of downtown Louisville and the bar is a busy local hotpot. Expect to find inventive dishes that are infused with local flavor and a strong commitment to local farming. “Our menu changes often,” Wajda said. “Farmer and foragers from the region are

16

dropping off new products daily. One dish that has stayed on the menu for a while now is the chicken liver pop tart. The filling often changes with the seasons, but it’s an adult version of a childhood memory.” Proof on Main is a modern American restaurant by definition, where guests can feel relaxed as they venture outside of their comfort zone, whether that experience comes from the ever-changing art on the walls, or the progression of seasonal produce and ingredients. “I like the idea of getting engaged with our food—maybe eating with your hands with our white linens on the table,” shared Wajda, who has also worked as chef de partie at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay at the London Hotel in New York City, and traveled from coast to coast with Michelin starred chefs as part of the Mina group. Proof on Main founders Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson’s Woodland Farm is located 24 miles east of downtown Louisville, offering plenty of opportunities for collaboration

with the restaurant team and providing everything from bison and hogs to chicken, fruits and vegetables. “Taking our team on farm trips, foraging excursions and staying sustainable gives us a deeper connection to the food and in return we have less waste,” stated Majda. “Above all, our team’s attitude and desire to deliver a great experience sets us apart from the rest.” Be sure to check out the monthly Fork & Bottle Series event at Proof on Main, which pairs up some of the restaurant’s favorite distillers, winemakers and brewers to create special tasting menus and pairings. Upcoming dinners will feature Jimmy Russell of Wild Turkey Distillery, Drew Kulsveen of Willett Distillery and Brent Elliot of Four Roses Distillery. Just be sure to call ahead for seating, as the events have limited availability and fill up quickly. For more information, call 502-217-6360 or visit www.proofonmain.com.

HOMESCAPES

1 1 A beautiful, inviting bedroom can be created in many ways, but the very best bedding makes the room one you never wish to leave. 2 When searching for new sheets, know what you love and ask a professional for help. Donna Osif of Bedded Bliss in Louisville asks first-time customers, “Do you like your sheets cool and crisp, or soft and satiny?” 3 When buying a mattress over 14” thick, either have custom sheets made or purchase sheets with deep pockets, else the corners will quickly tear, advises Osin.

Quality sleep starts with the right bedding. By Christina Noll

Are you looking for a reason to go to bed other than being tired? The key to really looking forward to bedtime is super comfortable, high quality bedding. Turn your bedroom into a safe haven with these tips from Donna Osif, founder and president of Bedded Bliss in Louisville. 1. Start with the sheets. “Sheets are most important, whether they are crisp and cool, or soft and satiny,” says Osif. Osif adds that ironing your sheets will help you sleep even better! 2. Don’t forget the pillow. “Use whatever works for you,” says Osif. “I prefer down.” 3. Add a cozy blanket. “Next you need a very soft cozy blanket, and the new coverlets that are being developed today are also soft and have an incredible feeling,” Osif says. 4. Set the mood. Try scented sheet sprays, or dab some rosewater on your sheets before you go to bed. “Burning a candle while reading or watching TV is quite relaxing,” says Osif. You’ll also sleep better if you workout regularly and meditate before bed. Most important is a dark room! When it comes to linens, head to a reputable store such as Bedded Bliss, or a store in your city, where they can recommend certain types of linens to meet your personal needs. Speak with sales people that are highly knowledgeable about the fabrics, how they feel, the wrinkle factor, reports of what other customers really love, and the best way to take care of the sheets. “The sheeting market, is quite tricky for us in the business, yet alone a customer being bombarded with info, or going into a department store and having no idea where to start,” says Osif.

So when a client comes in, Osif starts with a simple question: “Do you like your sheets cool and crisp, or soft and satiny?” Most people are set on one type of sheet or another. “We listen to our customers needs, and can then help them create the perfect comfy bed,” says Osif. They also work closely with designers. “Many of our customers usually have a fabric, color or rug that they are already committed to, so they will bring fabrics and paint chips in, and we can work around what already exists,” she explains. “We also are very good at cross merchandising manufacturers. An online retailer cannot pull together product from different vendors, which is almost always necessary...plus it is what makes the bedroom unique.” Osif also cautions against buying based on thread count. “The quality of the cotton is number one, so imagine if you have long smooth cotton fibers, and you are weaving them, the end result is a soft exquisite fabric,” she explains. “Now think of cotton with short fibers, and slubby pieces of cotton woven together—no matter what thread count you weave these into, short, slubby fabric is just going to be more nasty fabric—making them a high thread count won’t change that...not ever.” Finally, make sure you are sleeping on a good mattress. Osif does recommend that if you are buying a mattress that goes up and down, it works best in upholstered beds with wrap frames, or wooden beds with frames that do not require a skirt. “Also, before you buy a mattress over 14” thick, you are going to need custom sheets made, or find sheets that have the deep pockets that have 18” corners, so they will fit a 14” mattress,” she says. “You need extra inches that will fit under the bed, or your corners will pop off, and your fitted sheet will rip.”

LANDSCAPES

Driveways By Bill Henkel

Your driveway is one of the most important parts of landscaping, as it gives guests and neighbors a first impression of a home. It’s also likely that a driveway will be driven on constantly, so it needs to be durable and functional. First things first—your driveway should be safe, clearly defined, approachable and designed to accommodate your vehicles. Your driveway should be at least 9’-12’ wide with enough space to allow both driver and passenger doors to open freely. This will allow passengers to be able to step out onto a solid surface and move easily into the house. Driveways can be made with concrete, asphalt, brick, stone, gravel or pavers or a combination of these materials, which will create attractive entries and visual interest. Be sure to consider drainage to prevent ice and water buildup which could lead to slips and falls. If your driveway crosses a sidewalk, be ever mindful of the need for 180 degree vision for pedestrians, pets and bikes. Providing an adequate turn around, if your space allows, can eliminate the hazard of having to back out into the street, which is dangerous and illegal in some places. Backing situations should be avoided where possible. While backing uphill is possible, backing downhill can create a host of problems. Curving driveways can have visual appeal but be a problem to navigate, so whenever possible make your driveway generous.

Now that your driveway is properly functioning it’s time to consider the aesthetic experience of arrival and departure. Most driveways pass the property on one side or the other and are fairly close to a property line. These “left over” spaces are perfect places to create visual interest such as garden spots that allow you to add your own personal touch as you say hello or goodbye to your guest. Creating gardens with seasonal blooms around your driveway can add a vision of color and warmth to the entrance of your home. Side yard gardens with a driveway are the perfect place for evergreen borders that can be used to help define property lines and create a feeling of privacy. Colorful perennials can add light and seasonal interest. Small trees lining either side of the drive can create a tunnel effect, thus enhancing the experience even more. You can also do your part for our planet by installing a permeable paver driveway. It helps control runoff, filter rain water and return it to the ground water system. Last but certainly not least, your landscape lighting should include your driveway and walks since it adds curb appeal to your home and provides a safe path to and from your home.

No longer just a place to sleep or seek refuge, some modern-day children’s rooms have taken creativity to a whole new level, inspiring their growing occupants to dream big—and take a break from the constant demands of technology once in a while. “We’ve seen more parents opt to keep electronics—video games, tablets, televisions, cell phones—whatever—out of the bedroom,” shared Donna Outlaw, interior designer with Dwellings in Louisville. “This gives children a place to unplug, where they can relax and read, do homework, play and sleep that does not involve the virtual realm.” If you’re looking for ideas to create a space your kids will love, an imaginative children’s room is the perfect place to explore ideas that would never work in another part of the home. From castles and princesses, to pilots and storybook favorites—the possibilities are truly endless. “As a 37-year veteran of the design trade, it is still exciting when asked to participate in designing children’s rooms,” shared Mary Cynthia Martin of Martin Durr Caldwell Interior Designers in Danville. “It never fails, that if the child is involved and under the age of 9, they have consistent design colors

28

they request regardless of trends. Little girls favor pink and purple and little boys ask for red, black or navy!” Don’t be afraid to play around with a number of whimsical ideas when designing a special space for your little one. From polka dots and other extra-bright color patterns on the walls and floors, to themed built-ins and custom-made beds, the room can be as unique as your child. Just remember to develop a theme and work outward from there in order to develop a space that works. “The biggest challenge in creating an exciting youth room is remembering ‘less is more,’” Martin shared. “There are so many cute patterns for children and people just get carried away with each individual aspect instead of looking at the whole.” From a practical perspective, designing a child’s bedroom can be challenging, considering how fast they grow up. It’s hard enough to keep up with the endless demands of new gadgets, clothing and shoes, much less having to worry about updating an entire room every time your little tyke has another growth spurt. Fortunately, there are ways to work around this and create a well-designed space your children will love for many stages of life.

“Remember that your children will not remain their current age for long, so choose furniture that will transition with them through their teens and even college years,” recommends Robin Cole, interior designer with Robin’s Nest Interiors. “Accessories are easy to update for every stage of growing up and young adulthood when a strong foundation is there.” Of course, for those who opt to go all out and create something truly unique, the design can also help ensure your child’s room is a favorite place for sleepovers, thus keeping him or her closer to home. Think about it: How many kids did you know growing up who had a castle, Cinderella carriage or boat in their bedroom? What about a plane “flying” in for a landing? “The satisfaction that comes with delivering the final design is what motivates me,” shared David Depaulo of Bella Home Builders, who makes remarkable handcrafted beds that can serve as a focal point that children will cherish. Depaulo also incorporates a variety of unique design elements that have included a real 1919 pickup truck, historic gasoline pumps, a Cinderella-style carriage bed and much more. “I prefer to use the real thing as the basis for my designs,” he added.

Concept, design and construction: David DePaulo of Bella Home Builders. Image courtesy of Randall Perry Photography.

When it comes to designing a nursery, today’s technology makes it easy to know if it will be for a boy or girl, but some parents still like to be surprised, while others might be having twins—one of each sex—and still others plan to have several children in succession and would like to transition the space for the next baby without going through a complete design overhaul.

4 Using an authentic Mahogany-hulled boat built in 1945 that was in need of some repairs, David DePaulo of Bella Home Builders created this imaginative bed and desk combo, which beautifully complements the wooden beams and window panes in this youthful yet masculine space. Concept, design and construction: David DePaulo of Bella Home Builders. Image courtesy of Randall Perry Photography.

Martin says the use of modernism and shades of gray are prevalent today, while furniture had very simple lines and many wallpapers and fabrics consist of geometric patterns. White woodwork can set off subtle shades of gray and is usually paired with accent colors like tangerine or yellow. “The trick to understand is that not all shades of gray are created equal,” she added. “There is red-gray, yellow-gray and blue-gray.” Regardless of which shade you select, remember that mixing them does not always play well together and requires a fine eye to make it work, so it’s generally best to select one accent color for the room and play that up instead of blending too many different hues. Finally, keep in mind that the more you contrast the smaller a room will look.

4 Rooms larger than 18 x 20-square-feet have more space to indulge in multiple patterns, but with everything else that comes with most kids’ rooms (toys, clothes, school items, etc. strewn about), too many patterns can be chaos to the eye. Instead, keep the design impact at eye level, with the exception of a patterned carpet or rug, using wall art, wallpaper, window treatments and murals. No matter what age your child may be, these practical tips for creating a functional yet imaginative space for him or her to grow will help you create the perfect balance of practicality and creativity that appeals to parents and kids alike!

The Continuum of Living a

Creative Life By Heather N. Russell-Simmons Photography by Teri Dryden

Teri Dryden credits her successful career as an artist to, “Amazing people who believed in me, challenged me and supported me.” Her latest milestone is a solo show at the prestigious B. Deemer Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky, after a journey that began with a chance encounter with one of those amazing people at a Trader Joe’s in Los Angeles, California. “I introduced myself to Marilyn Lasarow because she looked so much like her sister who had directed me in a play,” said Dryden. “She invited me to an art class she was teaching, but I declined, saying I couldn’t draw a straight line. Marilyn insisted, saying, ‘If you show up, I’ll get you started’. “And there, in a studio on a hillside in Laurel Canyon, California, Marilyn opened me up to all the possibilities of creating,” said Dryden. “I loved drawing, but I held my pencil so tightly that it seemed inhibiting,” said Dryden. So, on a summer day, she began to play with canvases, paint and other mediums in her back yard. “That day, I felt a sense of freedom in the way I was moving my whole body; reaching and stretching, working my arms and elbows. That playful creative process was more freeing than drawing.”

“People think they’re missing something if they don’t understand abstract art,” said Dryden. “But that’s not the case at all, because everyone can take away their own thoughts, feelings and ideas about the work.”

32

2

Highly process oriented, Dryden has come to understand the techniques and the mediums. With that understanding comes the confidence to follow her intuition creating authentic collages and mixed media. “I start each piece of art with a line,” she said. “The lines I draw are a direct connection from my heart to the surface of the paper or canvas. Then I react to that line and see where it takes me. In the back and forth and flux, I apply and take away; I paint, sand and scrape,” she explained. Dryden works with acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal and pastels. For collage, she’s interested in discarded items- whether an outdated medical book she was given to deconstruct and repurpose or fruit bags and bus tickets she found on the ground during a trip to India. “I try to find surprises,” she said. Dryden works from a home studio in Louisville, Kentucky where she believes she getting braver as an artist. “In my search to do one thing better, something else often reveals itself and moves me in a different direction,” she said. “I think that’s the continuum of living a creative life—every experience moves me.” Dryden’s work is available at B. Deemer Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky; New Editions Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky; View Gallery in Jackson, Mississippi; and Contemporain Bankston/Adams Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

1 In 1991, when Ben Tyler bought his 3,700 sq. ft. Queen Anne Victorian home in Crescent Hills, the house was painted white with a green shingle roof. During renovations to restore the home’s exterior, Tyler worked with preeminent color consultant Bob Bucktner who is known for his work with San Francisco’s famed Painted Ladies on Steiner Street.

LaborofLove By Heather N. Russell-Simmons Photography by Walt Roycraft

In 1991, Ben Tyler and a friend were renovating houses when they learned a Queen Anne Victorian home located in Louisville’s Crescent Hill neighborhood would soon be on the market. Tyler, now owner of Ben Tyler Building and Remodeling, talked with his wife Lisa and they decided to buy the home for themselves. “You could tell it was a great Victorian house with nice architecture,” he said. “It was something we wanted to invest in.” “Based on records, we believe the house was built around 1890,” Tyler said. The 3,700 sq. ft. home, a former manse for Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church down the street, was in an estate when the owner died. The home had been converted into a duplex with two stories of additions in the back. With two others in his crew, Tyler tore down, remodeled and renovated the home back to a single-family dwelling. The white paint and green shingle roof were eventually redone after consulting with Bob Bucktner, a leader of San Francisco’s 1970s Colorist Movement that spawned the city’s famous Victorian houses known as the Painted Ladies of Alamo Square’s Postcard Row. “In 1994, while we were repainting, a heat gun caught the attic on fire,” said Tyler, who lived in a neighbor’s Carriage house with his wife and two-month old daughter while the fire damage was repaired. “We rebuilt the roof and restored the built-in copper gutters as part of the repairs,” he said of the work that also included modifying the front porch with turned columns and a custom railing. Tyler’s career as a contractor began after enrolling in law school. “That’s when friends asked if I wanted to renovate a building with them,” he said. “I loved the building renovation. It’s always a question that drives me: how did they do that; how did they build that?” Tyler went on to reach a degree of competency in trim carpentry before starting his own business. “Older homes are our specialty,” he said. “We deal with a degree of intricacy that separates us from other contractors. We handle difficult structural issues, whole house renovations and large additions.”

Thinking back to the purchase of his home in Crescent Hill, and phases of change the house has gone through over the years, Tyler said he is an optimist when it comes to renovations. “If a building has good bones, if the exterior is good enough, I can make it great with certain touches.” Those exterior touches may be a new front porch, a new roof, dormers or window trim. “What’s the possibility? What are the limitations? How can we deal with those?” he asked. “Problems are solvable, but the owner has to decide if it’s worth it.” “I like homes with intricate woodwork,” Tyler said, noting the original staircase in his home was continued up to the newly finished third floor during the fire restoration. “A staircase can be a work of art. The better looking the staircase, the better looking the house.” The intricacy of Tyler’s staircase is evocative of the decorative excess that defines Queen Anne homes. The movement, popular in America from 1880-1910, was the result of mid-century reformers in England emulating a time during the reign of Queen Anne in the early 1700s when workmanship was emphasized over superficial detail. That ideal transformed into high-style architecture characterized by the asymmetry, steeply pitched roof and embellished oriel window on the second floor of Tyler’s home. Tyler developed his appreciation for history as a child. “I grew up in Louisville, but my mother was from Maryland,” he said. “Everything is old up there. I didn’t realize it then, but that history was home.” That sense of history is reflective in the home’s interior. “Lisa and I like the things that were given to us by our parents,” he said. “Our bedroom furniture belonged to her parents and the dining room table is from my childhood home. That has meaning to us.” “We should move every two years; I’m a contractor and Lisa is a Realtor,” said Tyler. “But we’ve lived here since 1991. It’s been a labor of love to renovate and remodel, to keep making this a better home for our family.”

2 The home had been converted into a duplex walled-off at the original staircase. “All the trim and all the walls where white on the second floor,” he said. “Downstairs, everything was pea green.” In resorting the duplex back to a single-family home, Tyler paneled underneath the staircase and added a closet there. He also turned the staircase newel post and replaced the second entry door with a window. “As we removed plaster used to create the duplex, we found original, varnished pocket doors to the living room,” he said. “Thankfully they were not green!” 3 Tyler’s renovations continued the original staircase past the second floor to the third attic, duplicating the details of the home’s craftsmanship.

A portrait of Tyler’s two children, Malory and Graham, hangs above the sideboard. A portrait of his mother, Geraldine Frost Baker, hangs above her writing desk on the right. 5 The wet bar area is a converted pantry between the kitchen and the dining room. “We opened this up in 2003 or 2004 and added the custom cabinetry,” said Tyler. A door to the cellar rests in the ash floor, complete with gas springs for safety. “The door weighs about 120 pounds.”

6 Crown moulding and a custom bookcase are the only additions to the living room. “Most everything here, including the stained glass that looks out over the front of the home, is original,” said Tyler, whose reverence for history is further evidenced by the portrait of an ancestor, Benjamin Lawrence, that hangs in the room.

7 “This room, with the bay window that overlooks the front of the house, gets terrific morning light,” said Tyler.

The coffered ceiling and marble fireplace surround lend a grand feel to the space, which is also home to a number of precious antiques and family heirlooms. 4 The custom, Amish-made kitchen cabinets reach all the way to the 10-foot ceilings and perfectly match the trim color, while the granite countertops and tile backsplash create a strong foundation. The floor here is ž-inch solid hickory that was selected for its hardness and durability, as well as its character, with a satin polyurethane finish. The kitchen opens to the great room, a breakfast nook and the formal dining room, and is also connected to a large, walk-in pantry.

4 Nestled on an expansive, one-acre lot on Lexington’s south side, this more than 5,000-square-foot home has a distinct French Country feel and a wide variety of timeless touches. It was built two-and-a-half years ago by Jeff and Theresa Scates, who own and operate Scates Builders, LLC a local company that services the extended central Kentucky area. The business was growing rapidly at the time and they needed a way to show clients what they were capable of, so the couple decided to use their own home as a prime example, instead of building a standard model. “We bought the last lot in the subdivision,” shared Theresa. “It feels like we have the best of both worlds, because it backs up to a nature preserve but is also close to shopping, the tennis club and the airport.” The couple has four children—all now adults—so Theresa and Jeff wanted to have plenty of room for everyone to come visit often and be together comfortably. As a result, the home has five bedrooms, three full baths

and one powder room, as well as a large dining room that can easily accommodate the entire family as it continues to expand, and there are seating areas throughout the common rooms that are separate but still together, creating the ideal environment for entertaining and visiting.

of bright color placed here and there with choice accessories and artwork. For example, Theresa selected “Fenland” by Sherwin Williams for the wall color throughout the great room, kitchen, dining room and entryway, which allows for enormous freedom when selecting accent pieces.

There are bespoke touches throughout the entire home, including 10-foot ceilings, custom window treatments, woodworking and cabinetry, as well as trey ceilings and stunning, ¾-inch hickory flooring with a satin polyurethane finish that is tough enough to handle lots of traffic and provides a beautiful base for the couple’s extensive collection of antiques and family heirlooms.

The home exhibits intense attention to detail and timeless design, with a long list of special touches. This includes a walk-in shower in the en-suite master bath, eliminating the need to clean stubborn glass shower doors, as well as substantial custom woodworking at every turn, such as elaborate crown moldings and trim, wainscoting, coffered ceilings and reclaimed wood.

“My favorite areas are the kitchen and adjacent outdoor living areas, which are part of the great room,” shared Theresa. “The entire space has a stunning presence when you walk in, but it’s also inviting and very functional.”

Much more than a model, this new Kentucky home is a place for the Scates family to continue growing and make memories for years to come, while serving double duty as a testament to their passion for quality home building and a living example of craftsmanship that comes standard.

From a design perspective, the home has a neutral palette throughout, with pops

The walnut table is one of many treasured family heirlooms in the home – this one from Theresa Scates’ mother – while the trey ceiling picks up hints of the bronze, green and brown tones found throughout the room, and the painting above the antique sideboard provides a pop of color. 6 Located near the great room with the entryway just visible beyond, this charming and highly-functional breakfast nook features a custom-made table that expands the island seating found in the adjoining kitchen, where bar stools in a bright red fabric play beautifully with the crimson tones in this custom window treatment. 7 As Theresa Scates’ personal study, this warm and inviting space boasts a reclaimed wood ceiling, custom built-in shelving and gorgeous, quintessential Kentucky views of the neighbor’s horse pasture and barn. The desk is a French antique, and the window seat was built especially for the family’s beloved dogs, a Brittany Spaniel and German Short-Haired Pointer.

8 Situated close to the kitchen and the study, this dry bar has a granite countertop and glass tile backsplash, providing a convenient place for a wine refrigerator and some added storage. 9 The en-suite master bath has a large, walk-in shower with travertine and glass tile accents that has become one of the trademark designs of Scates Builders; a favorite because it eliminates the need to clean shower doors. The soothing cool blue wall color here is “Oyster Bay” by Sherwin Williams, while the angled claw-foot tub lends a charming touch and granite countertops complete the space. 10 French doors open to the en-suite bath from the home’s expansive master bedroom, which has gorgeous pastoral views and is flooded with natural light. The trey ceiling features a decorative medallion, while the chandelier lends a whimsical touch and custom window treatments complete the look.

and Erika Jones’ house is approximately 8400 square feet 1 Marion spread over three floors, each with two bedrooms, all on a 5 acre lot

surrounded by beautiful farmland. The house was designed with an old world European feel and a French country theme. To achieve the look on the exterior, they used brick and four-inch dimensional stone. The real stone is made in casts of different shapes that lay like a brick, for easy installation and a fabulous finish.

2 In the main floor great room, the Jones’ choose vaulted ceilings and an open concept. “We wanted to give the ‘wow’ factor so we vaulted the family room and put in the large wooden beams,” said Jones. The brick and stone fireplace features a herringbone pattern for added intrigue. Floors are walnut. All of the furniture was custom made or chosen for the space. 3 From the moment you enter the home you notice the rich walnut floors, which are throughout the main floor. The heavy metal ornate front door is called Donatello and is made in California. The Jones’ chose the Donatello doors for all the exterior doors, with the exception of the basement patio, because they tie in nicely with the French country theme.

4 4 “The kitchen is the hub of the house where everyone congregates,” said Jones. Custom three-inch granite countertops with a chiseled edge in the kitchen were made by placing two pieces of granite together. “In the butler’s pantry we did a single granite so customers could see the difference,” said Jones. The cabinets, by Barber Cabinets, have curved inset doors. Lights are called Fine Art and came from Debbie Lail. The entire room, which flows into the living room and dining areas are done in soft, neutral tones. The appliances are all Wolf. After growing up in Eastern Kentucky, and then living in Lexington for years, Marion Jones never imagined he would want to go back to living in the country. But that all changed when he and his wife, Erika, discovered Walden Estates, a group of five acre tracts developed by John Michael Montgomery and located near Nicholasville. Jones, owner of Bluegrass Fine Homes, built his first house in Walden Estates in 2008 and has since built six of the 11 homes located there. His current home sits on a lot that backs up to farms that will never be developed. Jones loved the property from the beginning, but at first it was not for sale. He tried three times to buy the lot and the third time was the charm. The reason he wanted that particular location, in a gated community at the dead end of the subdivision, is evident in the sunrises and sunsets. “It’s peaceful and very quiet. When I first moved here I didn’t think a sunset in a different spot would look any different but it sure does,” said Jones. He jogs a few mornings a week and enjoys the fact that there is no traffic in the gated community. “Watching that sun come up sure is nice,” he said. When Jones set about building his house, he had obvious experience, as a homebuilder. However he wanted his home to be a showcase— something he could show his customers as an example of what is possible in home design. He and Erika chose plans off the internet and worked with local architect Brad Milburn to tweak them. He also had designer Debbie Lail, with Window Wraps and Interiors, provide the interior design. “There was a whole lot of thought and time and design that went into this and Debbie really outdid herself,” said Jones.

The home has a French country style with faux finishing throughout the entire first floor and glazed woodwork. “No one needs a home this size,” admitted Jones, “I use it as a selling tool. People have a hard time visualizing what they want.” The house is a way for Jones to show his clients what is possible, so they can decide if that’s something they would like in their own custom home. For example, both master closets have floor to ceiling custom cabinets all the way around. “When I ask people in an interview about building, they may not be very interested in built-in cabinets in the closet,” explained Jones. “But when they see it—well the last three custom homes we did, once they went through and saw it, they had to have it.” Jones’ office is conveniently located on property, in a 5,000 square foot garage that houses the office, work stations and supply storage for the company. His wife also works for the company as office manager and his two grown sons are both realtors, making it a truly family business. “We separated the office from the house but it’s very convenient,” Jones explained. “We purposely separated family time and work time so I don’t have anything in the house that is business related.” Inside the house, Jones made sure to include every luxury, both for his family and to show potential customers. At almost 9,000 square feet finished, the home includes three floors and six bedrooms. The main floor features the open concept popular among homebuyers. All the floors are walnut and the entire first floor features seven different faux finishes, hand painted by artist Tony Kay over six months. “As a show home, we tried to do a different finish in each of the rooms,” said Jones. “I know it’s not for everybody, but it’s something we wanted to show to customers.” The effect is not only in keeping with the French country theme, but also breathtaking in its beauty.

5 The first thing visitors will notice in the breakfast area is the tray ceiling done in a wagon wheel style to mimic the round table below. The inset is faux finished to look like marble and to coordinate with the look of the countertops. The chairs offer a unique feature: they are gator-backed. “We picked out the hides and surface and paint color and the chairs were custom made and hand built,” explained Jones. 6 In the dining room, another wagon wheel tray ceiling offers the perfect juxtaposition to a round table; this one seats ten. The faux finish on the wall, one of seven featured in this home, is a favorite of the Jones’. “Under that there was a complete other faux finish but we didn’t like it so we started over,” he explained. 7 The Jones’ take extra care not to call their home study an office, because their company office is located on site nearby. Here in the relaxing home study, they had walnut wood stained from floor to ceiling to match the large walnut desk. A windowpane-coffered ceiling completes the traditional feel of this room.

7 The first floor includes a large living room, dining room and kitchen, along with the master suite and a separate guest bedroom, which has it’s own bathroom, morning kitchen and even it’s own thermostat so guests can control their temperature. The home is wired with Control Force so everything—from lighting to temperature to music and television—can be controlled from your iPhone. “The roof is so large that we incorporated two bedrooms with a jack-and-jill bath on the top floor for guests,” explained Jones. It also has a separate HVAC so when no one is there it can be closed up to save energy. “My two boys live downstairs and they have a complete kitchen and complete wet bar with dual TVs,” said Jones. The circular bar is surrounded by a 110” screen and two 36” screens, making it a true sports bar downstairs. “We tried to spare no expense and get real creative to give customers an idea of what they can do,” said Jones. The showcase of style and amenities continues outside the home with a portico that has been customized with an old world look and feel using cobblestone pavers and white stucco walls framed by a dark wood coffered ceiling. The Jones’ based the idea on architecture they loved from several visits to Europe.

What might be considered the centerpiece of the home is also located outdoors—the oversized patio that seats 40 people. “For me the outdoor living is my favorite spot,” said Jones. The patio includes a full kitchen with warming drawer, icemaker, grill and even built in trashcans. There is also a 73” TV and fire pit. “We actually put speakers around the fire pit so you can still hear the 73” TV from there without blowing out the people over by the kitchen,” said Jones. The sound system extends throughout the space, in the landscaping, so that the sound quality is more similar to a nightclub than a typical outdoor speaker system. “It’s built to the max for entertaining,” said Jones. The patio scene becomes even prettier at night when the landscape lighting and outdoor columns are illuminated. “When the SEC basketball was playing, all our neighbors came here and watched it out on the patio together,” said Jones. “It was pretty cool to have the whole neighborhood here.”

10 8 The master bedroom was designed to be both calming and practical. The large room required a massive bed, so the Jones’ chose from several old-world style options proposed by Debbie Lail. The result is a bed that sits proportionally in the room—and has the added touch of posts that light up at night! The room also has a morning kitchen, with a coffee maker, sink and small refrigerator, which the couple uses twice a day. The master has access to the patio with a sliding door. 9 The master bath offers a spectacular view rivaled only by the amenities offered. The bath features a claw foot hydrotherapy tub, steam shower, heated floors and granite countertops. There is also a set of his and her walk in closets with custom built-in cabinets, shoe racks and a complete dressing area with three-way mirror. 10 The outdoor patio comfortably seats 40 guests and features a fire pit, 73” television screen and full kitchen complete with warming drawer, ice maker, grill, stove burners and built in trash cans. On the upper level, the porch off the master bedroom offers a remote control screen that can be lowered on nights when the bugs are biting, but allowing you to keep the scenic country view. Furniture throughout the outdoor patio is made with outdoor fabric to last.

DISCOVERING KENTUCKY

Buffalo Trace Distillery Made in the heart of the Bluegrass and enjoyed around the world.

By Christina Noll Photography Courtesy of Buffalo Trace Distillery “If you’re a fan of history, a bourbon enthusiast, or just looking for a fun trip, you should visit Buffalo Trace,” says Kristie Wooldridge, Public Relations Associate Manager/Communications at Buffalo Trace Distillery. Thousands of visitors each year agree—Buffalo Trace is a must see destination, whether you live right here in Kentucky or are traveling to the state. Located in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery is a National Historic Landmark and features a picturesque bluegrass setting and a fascinating history that spans over 200 years. It began when Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. purchased a small distillery on the land in 1870 and called it O.F.C., named after the old fashioned wood-fired copper stills used to produce the whiskey made on site. Taylor began modernizing and expanding the operation, including the use of a steam heat system that is still used by the Distillery today. The Distillery changed hands and was run by several other prominent whiskey names before being christened Buffalo Trace in 1999. You can read more about the history of Buffalo Trace at www.buffalotracedistillery.com Today, eighteen different Kentucky bourbons are made at the Distillery, including the namesake Buffalo Trace, as well as Blanton’s, Ancient Age, W.L. Weller and the infamous Van Winkle. When you visit, you can enjoy complimentary tastings and tours as part of your experience. “We offer five different tours, each tour lasts about an hour and there is a tasting at the end,” explains Wooldridge. “Each tour has a different focus so you’ll learn something new on every tour you take.” For example, on the Bourbon Barrel tour,

you’ll follow the life of a barrel from how it is made to filling it with bourbon and through the aging process. “We have a National Historic Landmark tour which takes a deep look into our history and architecture,” says Wooldridge. The Hard Hat tour takes visitors into the still house to see the fermenters and the micro still. There is also a Ghost Tour, which explores some of the unexplained sights and sounds some have experienced at the Distillery, and goes up to the Stony Point mansion which used to be the home of former Distillery president Albert Blanton. “We also have a Trace Tour which gives a general overview of the Distillery and takes a look into one of our aging warehouses and our hand-bottling hall,” says Wooldridge. You don’t have to be a bourbon enthusiast to enjoy your time at the distillery. “Buffalo Trace has a rich history that dates back to 1786, we have beautiful botanical gardens that you can walk through, historic architecture is visible throughout the Distillery and simply learning about the techniques and process that have been in use at the Distillery for hundreds of years is quite fascinating,” explains Wooldridge. The tours are open to all ages, so it can be a family event. “We even have non-alcoholic root beer and bourbon balls for those who don’t drink, or are not old enough,” she says. Soon there will be something entirely new to discover at Buffalo Trace. Wooldridge explains, “Last summer we went into an old building onsite, called the OFC Building, which had once been used for distilling but has long since sat vacant.

The plan was to shore up the foundation and renovate the space to then utilize it as an additional meeting and events space, but when the construction crew pulled up the foundation we discovered, to our surprise, the original 1873 foundation for the O.F.C Distillery, including four fermenters from 1882 when Col. E.H. Taylor Jr. was distilling on the grounds!” Once the distillery remnants were found, the Distillery immediately halted construction and began work to dig out the fermenters and preserve the space. Now some finishing touches are being added to the space, including a newly installed catwalk. This new discovery will be part of a yet-to-be named tour that we’ll be announcing sometime this summer. Also coming up this summer is the annual Fourth of July 5K race called the Great Buffalo Chase. It’s just one of many community events the Distillery hosts throughout the year that are complimentary and open to the public. Other events in this category include the annual Easter egg hunt and a holiday event called Lighting the Trace, when thousands of lights are hung around the Distillery and community is invited to join as the switch is flipped to turn them all on at once. Around Christmas, the Distillery also hosts Santa nights. Paid ticket events include Disturbia at the Distillery during Halloween, Buffalo Love Valentine’s event, and a series of dinners tailored around Distillery legends. The Distillery also hosts weddings, anniversaries, corporate meetings and other events as well.
