What began with a spark… emerges as an icon.

The difference is Gaggenau. We have been perfecting one oven for 30 years. Our latest rendition accentuates its distinctive design: the door is now created from one imposing 90 cm wide sheet of 3 mm high-grade stainless steel. It represents one vast entrance to culinary potential. This remodelled, hand-crafted work of art represents the culmination of our finest principles, skills and ethos. We’ve christened it the EB 333 in recognition of our 333 years of working in metal. This has always been more than an oven; it is a promise to create masterpieces.

HELLO

Making it YOURS Dreaming of all the design options at Design & Detail Photography by Colin Miller/Strauss Peyton.

44-51

34-43

18-24

Growing up, I was always fascinated with one of my grandmother's dearest friends, Edna Poffenberger. The Poffenbergers were like family. They were included at all our family functions — holidays, weddings, baptisms and funerals. So why was I infatuated by the Poffenbergers at an early age? To tell the truth, I couldn't wait to see what they would wear! Ruthie, Edna's daughter-in-law, would arrive, time and time again, dressed like a true movie star! Colorful blouses and swirling skirts, dangling earrings, flowing hair, red lipstick...I thought Ruthie looked just like Marilyn Monroe! Bonnie, Ruthie's teenage fashion-conscious daughter, also dressed with a free-spirit flair like no other. The Poffenberger home was more of the same. Their home’s interior truly reflected their glamorous lifestyle. Knowing what you love and how you live is one of the easiest ways to personalize your own home. Let’s hope you never go to a party and recognize the host’s living room furniture as identical to yours! Today, many furniture lines now accept fabric choices, other than their own, at all price points. This customizing feature was limited to only the high-end pieces until recently. So have no fear design enthusiasts…a twinning living room doesn’t have a chance to be anywhere near! Homeowners quickly learned from architectural designer Garrison Salinas, of Garrison LTD, that displaying family heirlooms, formal china and treasured keepsakes that were once hidden behind closed cabinets never to be seen or used can give your home the character and meaning it is screaming for. Now empty nesters, the homeowners’ original vision combined with Garrison’s innovative ideas created the dream home they had no idea how much they would soon love (pages 44-51). Monte Herring’s top priority was to build his client an exquisite home focused on entertaining. After listening to the homeowner’s wishes, Monte replied, “So basically you want a small boutique hotel” (pages 34-43). If you want something done right, your best bet is to call in the design professionals. In the long run, they will save you time, money and avoid many a headache by assisting you with an upcoming project. St. Louis is home to quite an extraordinary group of professionals more than willing to accommodate you. With that being said, I’d like to introduce the 2019 class of St. Louis Homes + Lifestyles rising design stars, our 5 Under 40 design professionals (pages 18-24). Come shop with us at our self-guided I’m Still Gorgeous Tour on Saturday, October 5, from 10 a.m. — 4 p.m. If you want to ditch the car and ride with us, we have a VIP package including transportation and lunch and wine at Oliva on The Hill.

Caleb Bauer, Bauer Falls

SLHL: Share an experience that was a major influence on your career decision. Caleb: Having a personal relationship with the outdoors influenced me. I always knew I wanted to work with my hands and explore the wilderness. My childhood was spent floating Missouri's beautiful rivers and navigating the woods. Ever since I was a child, I've been drawn to being outside and becoming one with nature. As an adult, I continuously take backpacking trips and spend as much time outdoors as possible. There's a peace that's found in nature that no possession will ever give you.Â

Photography by Kristi Muensterman/Once Upon a Portrait Studios

SLHL: What is the biggest compliment you’ve received in your career? Caleb: A garden enthusiast upon seeing the St. Louis Homes + Lifestyles 2018 Garden of the Year said, "This has got to be one of the top 10 waterfalls in the country." He then hired us to build him a 600-foot waterfall over 20 feet wide that falls 100 vertical feet into a private lake. And the second biggest compliment is on every single project because our clients allow us the freedom to artistically create each waterfall without many upfront plans. They trust us entirely to be the waterfall artists that we are. SLHL: Who has been the biggest influencer in your career? Caleb: My older brother, Josh, and I started Bauer Falls together. He introduced me to the waterfall industry after spending several weeks in Africa on a mission trip where he met someone that builds waterfalls for a living. I would have never been able to start the business without him, and we constantly bounce ideas off of each other. We're a team that's focused on continuously creating better waterfalls and moving forward so we don't become stagnant or lackadaisical in our approach. We're passionate about making each project better than the last. He's the best business partner I could ask for and a great role model as well as a brother. SLHL: What was a project or experience that was a turning point in your career? Caleb: Millstadt Falls, (recognized as St. Louis Homes + Lifestyles 2018 Garden of the Year), because it catapulted us forward into building

large-scale waterfalls. Up to that point, we had been progressively creating more elaborate water features, but it was truly hard to explain what level we could take it to. Since we were given the opportunity and created this expansive waterfall, it showed people what we're capable of and allowed us free reign when it comes to creative design on all projects since. Millstadt Falls is the project that opened the door into the next level of waterfall design. SLHL: What does it take to achieve a high level of success before 40? Caleb: "Work hard, work hard, work hard," and be respectful of everyone. There's a lot of talented people and a lot of different industries; none are better or worse than the other. We're all just out there trying to make a living for our family. One's career choice doesn't define who they are as a person. Life's a team sport and if you can find even one thing you're good at and work hard at it, you'll end up succeeding and becoming part of a bigger team. Trust yourself, go with the flow and have fun.


Photography by Nicole Miget and Drive Social Media

SLHL: Who has been the biggest influencer in your career? Julie: Chris Berry. She gave me my first design job right after college, and I worked with her for almost 13 years until she retired. I learned more from her than I ever did in school. She taught me how to think outside of the box and push my ideas of what good design is, how to be a strong woman in an often male-dominated industry, and how to enjoy my job! SLHL: What was a project or experience that was a turning point in your career? Julie: Remodeling my own kitchen really made me empathize with my clients and what it’s like to go through the design and remodeling process. I experienced having carpenters, plumbers and electricians in my house everyday, dinner from paper plates for weeks at a time and sometimes getting overwhelmed by design and product choices, all of which helped me better relate to the personal experiences of my clients. SLHL: Tell us a story from your childhood where your creative design genius kicked in. Julie: I still have vivid memories of being on a childhood vacation in Barbados and sitting on the beach with watercolor paints and brushes, painting a series of animal portraits. My parents still have them framed in their house, and I suppose that’s when I knew I’d always want to do something related to drawing or art. In fact, I still do all of my construction drawings by hand with pencil and paper.

Julie Cullmann, Anne Marie Design Studios

SLHL: What does it take to achieve a high level of success before 40? Julie: I firmly believe in a strong work ethic and the importance of providing great customer service. It’s essential to spend a lot of time at the beginning of the design stage asking questions of and listening to clients to make sure we as designers understand their wants and needs. Having happy clients will encourage them to share their successful renovations with others and to come back for future projects. SLHL: What’s your favorite part of your job? Julie: I love learning about new products and design applications. It's so important for designers to stay on top of what’s new and exciting so that we don’t get into a rut.

Meghan Heeter, Castle Design

SLHL: Who has been the biggest influencer in your career? Meghan: The owner of Castle Design, Emily Castle, has been biggest influence in my design career. She is a wonderful mentor and loves to share her business and design knowledge and experience with up-and-coming designers. SLHL: Tell us a story from your childhood where your creative design genius kicked in. Meghan: When I was 12 years old, I set out to redecorate the bedroom I shared with my sister, Molly. With a limited budget, I had duvets made from a patterned Ralph Lauren sheet set. I used curved curtain rods and store-bought drapery panels to hang makeshift, half-crown canopies over our twin beds. I even convinced my mom to let me paint the wood floors and trim red! I wouldn’t say the end result was genius, but the experience certainly sparked my passion for interior design. SLHL: Where do you see your field expanding in the next 10 years? Meghan: I believe design will continue to expand from a digital and technologic standpoint. Visualization apps and communication tools will continue to improve to help designers sell creative concepts to clients. Social media will become more business focused, used as a tool to attract new clients and promote designers and projects.

Photography by Alise O'Brien

SLHL: What does it take to achieve a high level of success before 40? Meghan: I believe that it’s so important to cultivate your curiosity to remain passionate and engaged in your career. I take time out to travel to design symposiums and showrooms throughout the country to learn about the latest trends and innovations in design. Even when I travel for pleasure, I make it a priority to tour at least one historic home or architecturally significant site. Learning is a lifelong endeavor that, when fostered, ensures true success. SLHL: What’s your favorite part of your job? Meghan: Interior design is such a uniquely personal endeavor. As I work with clients to learn about their style, tastes and how they live, I enjoy the process and the amazing connections I make. Most of all, I love helping people make their dream homes become a reality.

SLHL: What is the biggest compliment you’ve received in your career? Lauren: The biggest compliment a client can give me is “I trust you.” Hearing that from a client means that I’m doing my job right and inevitably we will all be proud of the results. SLHL: Who has been the biggest influencer in your career? Lauren: The biggest influencers on my career professionally have been Emily Castle and Dana Romeis. The opportunity to be able to work with both of these women has been immeasurable. Their commitment to helping advance my career as a designer has brought me to where I am today. On a personal note, another big influencer in my career is my husband, John. He’s just an amazing partner who encourages me to pursue my dreams and works really hard with me to balance work and family. SLHL: Tell us a story from your childhood where your creative design genius kicked in. Lauren: I love change. Rearranging my room was endless entertainment for me as a kid. Luckily, my dad was a civil engineer, so our house was always stocked with graph paper, scales and colored pencils. My dad taught me how to measure my

room and make scaled drawings with the graph paper. I would draw my furniture to scale in various arrangements and choose my favorite. It would be years later when my career was far from design that I remembered how much joy this gave me. Funny how looking back, I was always headed toward design; it just took a few detours for me to get here. SLHL: Where do you see your field expanding in the next 10 years? Lauren: In the next 10 years, I can see working with more clients on their vacation homes. People are really working toward a strong work and life balance and investing in properties away from home that they can retreat to frequently with family and friends. I can see my design work shifting to traveling with clients as they invest in their homes away from home. SLHL: What’s your favorite part of your job? Lauren: My favorite part of my job is showing clients a fresh perspective. I love hearing “I haven’t seen that before” or “I never thought of that.” Ultimately, helping people make their homes feel like a representation of themselves while offering a design edge is what makes this my dream job.

Elizabeth Kavlock, Dashing Design by Elizabeth

Photography by Megan Lorenz

SLHL: What is the biggest compliment you’ve received in your career? Elizabeth: It’s not one large compliment that sticks out. I’d say consistently hearing a single solitary comment from my clients: "We chose you because of your excitement about our design, about our project, so we can’t help but be excited too,” along with, "No one else thought of that." I recognize that I was being told that same thing consistently. It is fuel to my fire. I want people to enjoy the process, and I want to be what is different than the other ideas out there. Not focusing on being better — just different. Those compliments remind me of why I am where I am and reminds me to never lose that love for each and every project. It keeps my motives in line with creativity, helping people and making the world more beautiful. All of that remains first and foremost. SLHL: Who has been the biggest influencer in your career? Elizabeth: My not-so-obvious biggest influencers would be my parents. To hear that they "brag" about my accomplishments to people no matter what achievement, save every magazine that features my work, and that they pull them out and show people inspires me. They are the first to have genuine pride and encouragement without expecting anything in return. I know that my desire to keep that up is part of the foundation that influences me to keep giving them something to beam about. SLHL: What was a project or experience that was a turning point in your career? Elizabeth: The biggest turning point was when I got pregnant with my biggest fan: my daughter. Without her, I wouldn't have taken a leap into being my own boss so that I could be active in her life as a working mom. She allows me to hold onto my creative outlet and stay in this industry. If she hadn't come along, would I have taken the chance on myself? Maybe, but I wouldn't be motivated to be balanced and bring such good thing to the table, knowing I have two little eyes watching me and learning by my example.

24

OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

SLHL: Where do you see your field expanding in the next 10 years? Elizabeth: I see it expanding organically. I want to continue meeting people and taking challenges while remaining reasonable with myself and seeing where it leads. Maybe I’ll go back to school to expand what I have to offer to my existing clients outside of what I do now. I would like to do more work out of state and be able to have a name outside of St. Louis, as well as do more commercial work: the type that improves and benefits cities that are in need of beautifying. If I keep my focus balanced and on what is important in life, I’ll be where I need to be in 10 years. SLHL: What does it take to achieve a high level of success before 40? Elizabeth: It takes the right motivation, humility, allowing yourself to be uncomfortable and allowing yourself to doubt yourself. That's what keeps you hungry to impress, deliver, execute etc., for your clients and for yourself. Imagine each scenario before it happens. Imagine success even if you doubt it. It takes practice, which may be the most powerful tool. Learn. Always be a sponge. Take risks. Look for the opportunities where people feel limited or stuck and make your solution look effortless, regardless if you are nervous inside. And have fun! Play at work, and play at home. Stay creative like a child. Be flexible, and identify what your creative clock is and milk it. But that wall will come, you will hit it, so allow yourself time for life and rest. Lastly, you’ll need support. It comes in so many different forms; no matter the form, remember to appreciate your supporters.

ARTIST

Sustainable

GEOMETRY By Tyler Bierman Photography by Colin Miller/Stauss Peyton

Ben Lowder is and has always known that he is an artist. Today, it's obvious. He creates bright and bold reconstructions of recycled wood, discarded vintage advertising to create statements on our modern society. His clout spans from coast to coast, and he even has a piece hanging in Will Smith's production company, Westbrook, Inc. However, way before that, Lowder was just a midwestern child with a lot of creativity. He would find little ways to garner praise for his early creative ingenuity. He recalls one of his earliest memories from when he was a toddler, “I remember taking a bunch of change that was on our coffee table and making a mosaic pattern. Then someone came over and said something to the extent of, 'Wow, that's really beautiful! Who made that,' and it was me, so I was very proud. A lot of my formative memories are like that. That creativity has become an integral part of my own personal mythology.�

26

OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

Ben Lowder takes natural geometry and recycled materials and turns it into art.


Lowder grew up and applied that creativity to his studies of signs and symbols and commercial advertising at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. It's here that he encountered the legacy of another huge influencer, Buckminster Fuller, the creator of the geodesic dome. From there, he became a graphic designer, a career he would continue on with for the next 15 years. Really it wasn't until he decided to fulfill a three-generation family tradition of building his own home that everything came together for him as an artist. Lowder explains, “When I got married and started having kids, we built a home. I get migraines, so I wanted to create a place that was a headache-free zone. To accomplish this, I used a series of design principals that were pre-industrial revolution, before the advent of air conditioning and heating, that essentially uses sacred geometry to align with nature instead of implementing technology to counteract the elements.” It's this experience and method of its construction combined with his expertise and waning passion for advertising that collided into what would become his new career as an artist and his signature style. As he puts it, “I took my college education on semiotics and my experience in commercial art and design, and I distilled these values into art objects that were coded with all this information: the sacred geometry, the sustainability of reclaimed materials and the deconstruction of advertising.” The process of creating one of these pieces is as unique as the ideas that they are comprised of. Lowder continues, “It's three-fold, which is funny because a lot of it is triangular. It starts out with a kind of treasure hunt. I'm searching for the heritage materials of our culture that are sprinkled around the heartland: rusty, metal signs and reclaimed barn wood. Then there's a sort of ritual I do to cleanse it. I use white sage, which releases it from its former usage. It makes it neutral so that I can reconstruct it into something that aligns with my core values or idea for the project.” Looking forward, Lowder still plans on going from coast to coast to share his work, but his home base will be right here in St. Louis. Not only are his roots here, but he also believes in the importance of the Midwest and this city’s influence. As he puts it, “I wanted to plant a flag in St. Louis. I think this city will factor in as one of the most important cities in America moving forward. This 20th century way of life is in need of evolving and progressing, and I think St. Louis is where that's happening.” Lowder has a gallery show on October 26th at the Open Mind Art Space in Los Angeles, CA.

Beet salad

Edibles & Essentials’ FRESH TAKE ON FOOD No business can be all things to everyone, but Matthew Borchardt’s cozy café-meets-market in South City is many things to a whole lot of local foodies.

OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

Chef-owner Matthew Borchardt has married what really are two distinct business approaches — the selling demands of retail and the craft of fresh food preparation and service — into an entity that makes us wonder why this duel-purpose model can’t be the default. When Edibles & Essentials opened its doors in St. Louis Hills nearly five years ago, Matthew expected the artisan market to dominate. He and wife Mary Beth stocked the shelves with “the best of the best” in local food and drink products, as well as fine food from around the country and the world. Local purveyors and products such as Buttonwood Farms, Red Hot Ripletts, Companion Bakery and more are available. There are at least 100-plus other pantry staples to cover the must-haves — think olive oil, honey, pickles, dressings, dinnerware and pretty much everything else necessary in a well-stocked kitchen. But what Matthew does in his own kitchen was bound to have an impact

Beet Salad: Beets love goat cheese like Desi loves Lucy. The cheese enters in the form of a tasty fritter in Chef Matthew’s version. The other match made in Heaven? The pickled red onion and maple vinaigrette that have popped in on the affair. The chef sprinkles on almonds for good measure. Sea Scallops: Pay close attention for the secret to perfectly cooked scallops, which are only somewhat trickier to master than the fried brussels sprouts served on the side. A hearty squash puree completes the plate. It’s up to the lucky diner to decide how much of it gets gussied up with vanilla bean brown butter. Pumpkin Spiced Cake: It’s not necessary to be neck-deep in PSLs every fall and winter to appreciate Matthew’s cozy cake. The cinnamon buttercream on top is indulgent all by itself, but then craveable candied pecans give it a satisfying crunch.

Available summer produce inspired tomato salad and guacamole; at other times, pickled and marinated foods, chicken and tuna salads, and other house-made dishes are packaged for grab-and-go market shoppers. “The business has changed considerably since we opened,” he says. “Because of the quality of the food, it’s developed more as a restaurant than a market. The market reflects the restaurant food and the food reflects the market.” Matthew’s hyper-seasonal focus keeps chutneys, fruit, nuts and charcuterie boards looking a little different at any given time in the restaurant.

There’s little one could add to the discussion about his signature breaded and fried ribs (a scrumptious cherry-smoked “sacrilege” dreamed up by his brother) or the much-lauded pork belly bánh mì tacos that hasn’t been said. The fact that these faves never leave a menu that otherwise changes weekly is testament enough.

hen he’s considering new projects, builder Monte Herring has a guiding philosophy. “I only want fun projects,” he says. So, when a potential client wanted a new build with lots of entertaining space for frequent small dinners and large charity events, Monte was intrigued. The client also wanted a commercial-grade kitchen, outdoor entertainment spaces and guest bedrooms with en suite baths. “I said to him, ‘So, basically you want a boutique hotel,’ and he said, ‘Well, yeah,’” Monte says with a laugh. Herring Design & Development had its newest fun project. After considering several options, homeowner and builder eventually settled on a lot in the heart of Kirkwood. Monte shepherded the proposed teardown of the vacant apartment building that occupied the lot, a process that sailed through the city’s Landmark Commission. The Herring team was off and running to design and build a new home that would blend seamlessly with its neighbors on a historical street. Monte envisioned a home that would stand the test of time and that looked like it already had. “I wanted the home to have an old, castle-type feel, but like it had gone

Builder Monte Herring designed the lounge with several goals in mind. The room is a transition from the dining room to the kitchen, and it also holds overflow guests who inevitably gather in the kitchen, no matter how large it is or where it’s placed in a home. And the lounge provides an intimate space for guests to relax or watch TV. Holly Hunt furnishings, with artwork by Dan Byrne. OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

Architect Michael Abraham and builder Monte Herring collaborated on the board and batten theme for the staircases and in paneling used throughout the home. “The slat effect lets a little bit of light come through, and it also gives you a hint of what’s to come as you move through the rest of the home,” says Monte.

through a completely modern renovation,” he explains. The new home’s façade is primarily stone with stucco utilized in some areas. Zinc was used on several sections of roof. “These are materials that will stand the test of time,” Monte explains. “I think it’s going to be hard to date this home in the years to come.” For the interiors, Monte focused on modern lines while paying homage to design styles of old. For the walls, he designed a board and batten type of paneling. The staircases received the same type of design treatment with an important detail — Monte’s team left gaps between the slats to let light peep through. Bamboo floors with a hand-scraped look unify most of the spaces on the first and second floors. The flooring “already looked old, going

back to the castle feel of the design. Bamboo’s durability means it will hold up over time,” Monte says. Ten people fit comfortably at the table in the dining room, which is just off the entry. Monte placed a small lounge between the dining room and the kitchen. “No matter where the kitchen is, no matter where the dining room is, or how they connect to each other, people always hang around the kitchen, so the lounge is designed to hold some overflow,” he says. He outfitted the lounge with a serving bar topped by Direcsco Belgian quartz and placed a large TV against a paneled wall. Lowering the lounge ceiling about six inches from the adjacent dining room makes the lounge feel even more intimate. Professional chefs work their magic easily in a kitchen with the feel


of a commercial restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets with a comb finish house an impressive collection of barware and china — enough for almost any size gathering. Monte balanced commercial-grade appliances and a rolled steel beam above the range hood with an island of rustic barn wood topped by a quartz waterfall countertop. He encased a swinging, restaurant-style door leading to the butler’s kitchen in a soft gray leather. A nearby wall is leather as well. This mix of materials, particularly the use of leather, gives a more elegant and richer feel to the commercial vibe of the space. The doorways leading to the great room, along with its fireplace, feature curved limestone cut specifically for this home, says Monte. “The cut limestone and the masonry of the fireplace were all detailed

with the help of Chicago architect, Michael Abraham,” says Monte. Chrome beams draw the eye to the 22-foot high ceiling in the great room. A trio of doors leads to the courtyard, which features a large sitting area, outdoor kitchen, firepit and reflecting pool. At the opposite end of the great room, large pocket doors lead to a master wing that’s both serene and masculine. The master bath features an outdoor shower with a heated floor — one of the homeowner’s must-haves. An outdoor sitting area complete with TV, ceiling fan and fireplace is adjacent to the bedroom. In a house built for entertaining, the basement is party central. Monte anchored the space with a polished concrete floor that stands up well to a lot of feet.

table supported by one blade of chrome anchored into the concrete and that continues through the glass wall of the wine room. Why would he design a table the defies convention? “Because we can,” Monte says with a smile. “Because it’s cool. Because everybody else has table legs. We try to do things that break the mold a little.” The “cool factor” continues as glass doors from the basement open onto another outdoor entertaining space. Concerned early in the design process with the proximity of the neighboring homes, the homeowner and the design team considered a sunken entertaining space that would help minimize noise if parties ran late into the evening. “Recessing this courtyard down in the ground helps contain some of the noise and also provides privacy,” says Monte. The sunken courtyard also features a stone-clad fireplace and walls softened by comfy, cushioned chairs and swings. “Someone started calling this space ‘the grotto,’ and I think that’s a great description,” Monte says. One of the homeowner’s requirements for the new home was a four-car garage. Two bays are attached to the home, and a detached carriage house has two additional bays on the ground floor and guest quarters upstairs. In just 300 square feet, Monte designed a charmer of a guesthouse with a beach cottage vibe, right down to the shiplap walls and ceilings, white cabinetry and built-in bed tucked into a dormer. Since its completion in 2017, the homeowner has hosted thousands of guests at events both large and small. At times Monte is a guest as well. “This is a very active house, and I really enjoy seeing it alive with people the way the homeowner wanted it,” says Monte. “This project was both challenging and a lot of fun.” See stlouishomesmag.com for resources and additional photos.

Architect: Fumagalli & Lampe, INC. Contractor: Schneider Construction Services Interior Designer: Garrison LTD

As principal of Garrison LTD, Garrison Salinas has been applying his multitude of design skills to clients’ projects since 1992. While his construction background, extensive resources and creative ingenuity are recognized throughout the industry, the architectural designer’s foremost talent may be his unique ability to interpret the client’s objectives, ensuring a finished plan that is dynamic, architecturally valid and aesthetically pleasing inside and out. This stately residence in Frontenac is a perfect example. Custom built for the owners 26 years ago, the five-bedroom two-story had never been remodeled and was no longer functional for the couple’s empty-nester lifestyle. They briefly considered moving but loved their environment and decided to add a four-season room instead, since they enjoy outdoor grilling year-round. Already familiar with Salinas’ styling, the owners began the planning process in early 2018, and at this point, the project took a dramatic turn. Analyzing his clients’ objectives — in other words, “what they really wanted,” Salinas suggested reconfiguring the main-floor living spaces to better suit their current needs. The couple responded to his vision with enthusiasm, adding, “We didn’t hire an architectural designer; we hired Garrison!” Under the new plan, the original living and dining rooms would retain their dimensions, but the rest of the main level would be totally redesigned, adding 408 square feet and creating more functional space for the couple to entertain their adult children, grandchildren and guests. Special elements would also provide the opportunity to display treasured family heirlooms that had been stored away for years. “Tradition is very important to us,” the owners agree, “and we wanted to make these items part of our family’s memories, as well.” Once architect Lori Fumagalli had completed the drawings, work began in June of 2018 with Schneider Construction Services as the general contractor. Making the renovation even more remarkable, Salinas phased and tailored the entire process, enabling the owners to live in the home during

construction. “Garrison’s subs were great, and there wasn’t a single problem,” the husband notes. Salinas recommended classic East Coast styling — open, warm, casual and easy to maintain, with “pops of European.” Capitalizing on the 10-foot ceilings, transoms were added to various windows and doors, and the existing caramel oak floors were extended and feathered into the new spaces then refinished in an “espresso bean” tone. For an authentic coastal feel, the window casings and muntins were painted black and the drapes replaced with organic Overland woven shades. Repurposing is another of Salinas’ skills, as evidenced by the formal dining room, which underwent relatively few changes. The vintage damask wallpaper was retouched, and a traditional chandelier was added, complementing the owners’ magnificent, over 100-inch round mahogany dining table. Other furnishings include an antique breakfront, side table and clock inherited from the owners’ grandparents and great-grandparents. The living room, however, was completely transformed and converted to a luxurious pub-style bar. Centorbi Cabinetry was responsible for the woodwork, including the rich paneling and Salinas’ cleverly designed bar, which features a cutout/dropped workspace. Granite tops the work surfaces; the cabinetry houses a refrigerator and wine cooler, and the original fireplace surround was faux-painted to look like wood.

The rest of the main level was expanded and renovated to create the “functional family center” requested by the owners. The library walls were removed, making this space an extension of the family room and a perfect location for the grand piano. Visible from the entry foyer, the family room fireplace remains a focal point, but was modified with a dropped hearth and raised mantel. Fully open, the family room, kitchen and casual dining area are designed for large gatherings and a host of activities taking place simultaneously. The selected textiles emphasize the coastal décor, with durability and ease of maintenance being particularly important factors. For example, the expansive Arhaus sectional is upholstered in a light-toned, stain-resistant Crypton fabric — sturdy but soft in Belgian linen, then fiber-sealed for added protection. Since the kitchen was sure to become the hub of family activity, one of the owners’ earliest requests was an oversized island that would allow everyone to cook, eat, chat and even watch TV together. Centrally located in front of the fireplace, the 8-by-10-foot island is topped in easy-maintenance manmade quartz and fitted with an undermount sink. Tucked under the L-shaped overhang are comfy bar chairs from Restoration Hardware, covered in a "Belgian linen-like" fabric. Observing that his clients are “very quality and design conscious,” Salinas devoted special attention to this vast culinary space, creating a

classic décor with European touches that would remain in style “forever.” Backed with limestone tile resembling Italian mosaic, the range hood is faux-painted to match. The hood support is finished to look like distressed iron, and mixed metals, crystal accents and walnut backsplashes lend still more character. Both functional and decorative, the banks of creamy gray cabinetry include glass-fronted doors that showcase a wonderful array of the owners’ heirloom china and serving pieces. The renovation also allowed Salinas to include a feature anyone hosting a dinner party would appreciate. Hidden behind frosted doors is the “dirty” kitchen. Lined with subway tile and equipped with a porcelain farmhouse sink and second dishwasher, this space is designed to keep the caterer and/or messier aspects of entertaining – e.g., food preparation and clean-up — out of guests’ sight. Fulfilling the owners’ original concept, the casual family dining area comprises most of the added square footage and, sunlit by windows on three sides, provides direct access to the home’s rear yard, patio and well-used grill. The Arhaus trestle table was made in Italy and faux-painted and weathered by hand, complementing the kitchen’s décor, and pre-owned dining chairs were refinished to match. Against a side wall, a custom walnut armoire with vintage bronze hardware serves as the wife’s desk. A tribute to Garrison Salinas’ unique talent, this gracious residence is not only brilliantly planned and superbly appointed, but also something of a “time capsule” for the owners. They now enjoy a home that is beautiful, functional and ideally suited to the way they live today while staying surrounded by items that remind them of cherished family yesterdays in a classically designed milieu that will retain its stylish ambience for countless tomorrows.

they knew they needed to downsize from the one-acre plot they had previously tended. In the selection of a place to move, they carefully vetted the location, selecting a hillside lot that stretched upward so that view of their garden would fill every window of their new home. “The whole back of our home is windows,” says Ken, “so no matter where we are, we can see the garden. We had to argue with the builder who wanted to put the fireplace along the back of the house. We made him find another place for it.” While Maria and Ken felt totally comfortable with their gardening


skills and being able to paint a picture with plants, they needed someone to stretch the canvas so their work could begin. To do that they called on Caleb, Josh and David Bauer of Bauer Falls. Ken and Maria had a long association with “the boys,” as they call them. “I think we were their very first customers at our old house when they formed their own company,” recalls Ken. That association had been so successful, they knew immediately who they wanted to design the natural looking water features at their new home. While the topography was correct for what the Bowers wanted, it

was a long way from being ready to plant. “They pointed to where they were going to build their house and told us to use our imagination to create a little oasis,” Caleb recalls. The project required both imagination and an excavator. “The place was a jungle,” Caleb continues. “The hillside was covered in bush honeysuckle and vine honeysuckle. Josh was on the excavator and created this giant ball of honeysuckle vine that filled our trailer.” Two weather-dependent months and 17 palettes of stone later, the bones of the garden had formed. A 100-foot stream bed spilled STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

down the terraced hillside and into a pond, pathways and soil led up and around the water feature and there was a spot for a swimming pool. The Bowers had the balance they wanted between pond, pool and garden. With the canvas ready, Maria and Ken began their artistry. Loving the contrast between yellow green and blue green foliage, they selected yellow Tiger Eyes sumac, Blue Atlas cedar, blue spruce and spreading Saybrook Gold juniper. They added the purple foliage of Forest Pansy redbud. Green Giant arborvitae provided screening along the sides of the property. Nandina went in for year-round interest provided by lacy foliage, white, lilac-like blossoms in early summer and red berries in winter. Different types of hydrangeas with a variety of bloom times added to the mix. Crepe myrtle was there for summer color. Tiny mazus reptans covered the ground around stepping stones and glowed with chartreuse foliage and tiny purple flowers.

OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

For help with larger selections and major planting, they called on longtime friend David Haring of Sundown Landscape Contracting. The hostas, ferns and other perennials, they planted themselves. While there are some annuals in their garden for continual color, the Bowers are strong believers in perennials because of the constant change they bring to the landscape from the dogwoods and creeping phlox in the spring to burgundy foliage of the oakleaf hydrangeas in the fall. “It is always interesting to walk around the garden,” says Maria. “It is different this week than it was last week.” Making the garden a true oasis is the continual sound of the water that cascades down the hillside. “We are near Gravois Bluffs,” explains Ken, “but when we are out in the yard, we never hear the sound of traffic.” The Bowers love of gardening goes back for more than 35 years when Maria first joined the Southwoods Garden Club. “I got a lot of books and started reading about different trees and shrubs,” she recalls.


“Ken got interested because I was interested.” “Both of my grandparents were farmers and I grew up on a farm until I was in seventh grade,” Ken adds. Through the years, the Bowers have added to their knowledge and focused on the plants they love, employing that list of favorites to create their new garden. “We also ran away from some things,” notes Ken, adding that they had a long list of invasive species that they were determined not to plant in their new space. In this garden they have also used more rock mulch, which Ken finds longer lasting and easier to deal with than organic mulch. The Bowers have an ongoing relationship with “the boys” of Bauer Falls involving maintenance and small projects. It is nourished by their names pronounced the same although spelled differently. “The coolest thing about the Bowers is every time we come back, it is prettier than when we were there before,” says Caleb. “They always put on coffee

and pull out snacks. They are almost like parent figures to us. “We are working right alongside them. They are such good and devoted gardeners; you can tell they get real joy out of it. For us, being there is like a dream, no matter what time of year we are there, being in their landscape is like being in another world. You totally forget where you are.” To maintain their plant-life painting, the Bowers estimate that they each spend two hours a day in the garden. “The hard work amounts to less than an hour; the rest is just piddling,” Ken says with a laugh. There is joy, they both agree, in simply being outside surrounded by beauty. “We like to be outside as much as possible,” adds Maria. “We love to read and learn about different plants. It is always interesting just to walk around the yard. There is a calmness and relaxation you get out of it.” See stlouishomesmag.com for resources and additional photos. STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

A shallow pot with drainage hole is ideal for forcing these wonderful, small daffodils. Fill with 2 inches of potting soil and add some bulb food. Position bulbs close together but not touching and cover with potting mix so that bulbs are about half an inch below the pot rim. Gently firm soil around bulbs and water well. Cover pot with newspaper and place in a dark location at 30 to 50 degrees for about 12 weeks, check soil periodically and water as needed. Shoots should be three to four inches tall before moving into the light. To force the flower, place the pot in indirect light at about 60 to 65 degrees for three to four days, then place it in full sun until blossoms open in approximately three to five weeks. Make sure to keep the soil moist! After about 16 to 17 weeks after planting, these 7-inch tall daffodils will sport a bright yellow flower. Tete a Tete is great for its compact size, profuse flower and bright yellow color; it’s also great for both forcing and displaying in a garden bed, not to mention it’s a cheery addition to any window sill!


With one of the few true blue flowers in nature and with a heady perfume, “Blue Jacket” Hyacinth tops my list of favorite bulbs. Its rich, blue flowers add intense color to the landscape and containers. Hyacinth can easily be forced for timed blooming, making them ideal for holiday displays. They bloom about six weeks after planting. Ann Lapides, Sugar Creek Gardens.

Our favorite forced bulb is the “Amadeus” Amaryllis. The large, double petals of their white blossoms are streaked with red accents. They make a beautiful holiday showpiece when forced indoors during the winter months. These long-lasting blooms make a festive gift that is easy for even a novice plant lover.

Paperwhite, or Narcissus, is one of the most foolproof flower bulbs to force. Planting forced paperwhites is so simple, even my aunt Betty could do it, and she was blind! Also...the novice (or your kids!) can easily accomplish paperwhite bulb forcing. Many varieties of paperwhites are available, ranging from all white flowers, which are my favorite, to those composed of both light yellow and white. The fragrance, well, even Aunt Betty could find them! Scott Hepper, award winning Master Floral Designer.

Grow your own saffron! These beautiful purple crocuses will flower inside and offer you pure saffron on each flower's stigmas. Bulbs can be cooled in fridge and forced to bloom out of season inside the home. David Sherwood, Sherwood’s Forest Nursery.

SHAWS VISION

OCTOBER

Stay up-to-date in your landscape with planning tips and events from the Missouri Botanical Garden.

All of October Container grown and B&B (balled & burlapped) trees and shrubs can be planted. Loosen the soil in an area 2 times the diameter of the root ball before planting. Mulch well after watering. A few degrees of frost protection may be gained by covering tender plants with sheets or light-weight fabric row covers. Continue harvesting tender crops before frost.

October 1–15 Seeding should be finished by October 15. Dig sweet potatoes before a bad freeze.

October 15 – 31 Spring bulbs for forcing can be potted up now and stored in a cool, frost-free place until it is time to bring indoors, usually 12 to 15 weeks. Continue mowing lawns until growth stops. Keep leaves raked off lawns to prevent smothering grass. Trees may be fertilized now.

SMALL SCALE

OH BOY! A talented couple designs a sweet space to bring home their new bundle of joy. By Melissa Mauzy Photography by Anne Matheis

After finding out they were expecting a bouncing baby boy, Trisha and Scott Arnold got to work creating a precious place for their new addition. Trisha, an artist and art teacher, says she wanted something different for the space, and texture was at the top of her list. “I wanted a different texture on each wall,” she explains. “And I wanted to create warmth using a neutral color palette with a pop of midnight blue.” Handy husband Scott helped the vision come alive. Gray-washed shiplap on the changing table wall was the first texture she picked. Next up, two walls are painted Midnight Blue by Behr. The most unique feature in the space is the wood waterfall effect on the ceiling that trickles down the wall. “I saw a wooden waterfall effect on a kitchen island at a home store, and the lightbulb went off,” Trisha explains. Scott created the waterfall treatment using pallet wood and spent hours taking apart pallets to make Trisha’s dream nursery come true. “I came home from a trip and he surprised me with the finished wall. I was in tears and so excited,” she says. For furniture, the couple selected their crib, rocker and changing table from Treasure Rooms. They chose a natural rustic finish, Trisha says, because she wanted something light, yet not white because of the gray and warm wood tones already in the room. The rocker cushion was custom ordered with a fabric Trisha selected to complement the color scheme in the room. Trisha says she has an eclectic taste throughout the home, and she loves to repurpose items. The ceiling swag above the crib was part of her sister’s nursery 18 years ago. She tweaked the design a bit and hung it from the wood pallet ceiling treatment. Her second purchase after the gray shiplap was the mobile that hangs over the crib. The three-tiered mobile features nine fabric birds perched on twigs. Trisha customized the fabric to fit her taste. For the finishing touches, she found accessories for the nursery as she discovered them. The art in the room was important to her, and the bunny, llama and giraffe prints fit along with the other animal-inspired decor in the space, like the white ceramic dog lamp and animal hooks displaying the baby’s hats. Trisha’s creative vision and willingness to take risks in the design coupled with Scott’s craftiness has resulted in a warm and masculine space that will grow with sweet Sullivan Michael as he gets older.

A CLEAN SLATE

After a burst pipe wreaks havoc in the kitchen, designer Emily Castle brings life back to the space. By Miun Gleeson Photography by Alise O’Brien


Architect: Schaub + Srote Contractor: Greg Terbrock Design + Build Interior Designer: Castle Design

When a burst pipe unleashed about 200,000 gallons of water damage to this house in Lake St. Louis, not one room escaped unscathed. A massive remodeling effort included the kitchen, presenting a design opportunity that doesn’t come around every day. “It’s not too often you take something down completely to studs and get a clean slate,” says designer Emily Castle. The previous kitchen enjoyed a rustic aesthetic with heavy timber touches throughout. While the darker look complemented the light and airy views from the lake, the remodel was an opportunity to reimagine how light flowed in the space. The new color scheme of cool grays and whites augments the light outside, integrating the natural lake setting in a different way. The original footprint of the kitchen was expanded to include the bar height countertop and a built-in banquette. The seating options and high-end appliances conveniently accommodate two things this gourmet kitchen has in abundance and that typically go hand in hand: lots of family members and entertaining them. From a lighting standpoint, one of the biggest design challenges to contend with was the low, 8-foot ceiling. Castle knew she wouldn’t be able to add pendants or any light fixtures hanging from such a low ceiling. In order to give lighting interest in another way, she installed recessed lighting to softly and unobtrusively illuminate the space while ensuring the space wouldn’t feel small. Two oversized sconces from Visual Comfort are standout features in the kitchen. Flanking the kitchen hood, the sconces are made from mercury glass and aged black iron. Castle created continuity by repeating the black iron on the cabinetry hardware. The discerning materials in the remodel help to create textual interest and sophistication. Such touches include two-toned cabinet drawers that are white with a deeper gray inset. A backsplash made with Polarstone Calacatta Vagli quartz blends seamlessly with the classic subway tile on either side. The end result shows how a blank slate can yield an inspired space full of modern elegance and functionality. See stlouishomesmag.com for resources and additional photos.

Balancing

FORM & FUNCTION The Barcelona chair stands the test of time. By Ashley McGoff Photography courtesy of Knoll Inc.

84

OCTOBER 2019 STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM

When Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was commissioned to represent Germany in the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain, he knew he had to create something magnificent. Regarded as one of the pioneers for modernist furniture design, Mies wanted to display his skills while premiering the progressive design culture of his native Germany. With this in mind, Mies created the Barcelona Chair, one of the most iconic pieces of furniture of the 20th century. Mies began with the vision of creating not just a chair, but an “important chair…a very elegant chair.” Knowing that the King and Queen of Spain were going to be in the exposition’s attendance propelled Mies to design a chair that would be fit for a king. To create this “elegant chair,” Mies began his design with a unique positioning of the chair’s legs to create a highly cantilevered seat. The distinctive design of this seat was framed by two chrome-plated curved front legs and two s-shaped back legs to create a truly unique piece for its time. Mies designed a chair with the perfect balance of form and function. Although only two chairs were made for the exposition, Mies’s chair became so popular that it was put into production right away. Several manufacturers have produced the chair, but the honor now belongs to Knoll, which has built the chair since 1947. Small updates were made over the years as the seat is no longer crafted using pig-skin leather but rather with sumptuous cowhide leather. The chair now comes in several different options of luxurious leather in a bevy of colors. Even though minor adjustments were made, Mies’s original vision remains to this day. The Barcelona Chair is for someone who appreciates fine craftsmanship and unparalleled style. A chair as sleek as this will fit right in with any modern design style. Pair this seat with the complete line of Barcelona furniture, such as the Barcelona Ottoman, or let the exquisite beauty of the chair speak for itself. See stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

Lemp Mansion, St. Louis, MO Photography by Otter Graphics.

In 1838, John Adam Lemp emigrated from Germany to St. Louis. Seeing the potential of lager beer, Lemp built a modest brewery and created an industry. The Lemp Brewery was phenomenally successful; it established the Lemp family and their home as symbols of wealth and power. The Lemp Mansion — built in the early 1860s — boasts 33 rooms, a loft, grand hall, patio, gazebo and coach haus. With a fortune to bankroll its occupants’ whims, the mansion became a Victorian showplace; visitors will be awed by mantels of Italian marble and African mahogany, hand-painted ceilings and unique furnishings such as a glass-enclosed, freestanding shower. Of course, the mansion’s most impressive amenities are the auditorium, ballroom and swimming pool located in an underground cavern. Nowadays, the Lemp Mansion is a restaurant and inn. But beware. If you stay overnight, you might have a paranormal experience. The demise of the beer barons is a story of mystery and tragedy in the form of unexplained deaths.

For many years, Bacon’s Castle was known merely as the home of Arthur Allen, a prosperous tobacco agent, and his family. In 1676, however, Nathaniel Bacon led Virginia settlers in an armed rebellion against Governor William Berkeley. During this uprising, known as Bacon’s Rebellion, the Allen house was seized by several of Bacon’s men and occupied for four months. Thus, it became known as Bacon’s Castle despite Nathaniel Bacon never having lived or even having stepped foot on the property. Interestingly, the castle is the oldest brick dwelling in North America and a rare example of High Jacobean architecture in the New World. Also, it has triple-stacked chimneys, a reconstructed 17th-century English formal garden and a slave dwelling from the 1830s. Bacon’s Castle was originally built in 1665, and consequently, it has accumulated over 350 years of history. If you visit Bacon’s Castle, which is now a restored and furnished museum, you can discover many tales about the centuries-old building, including the strange phenomen that locals report.

Bran Castle, Bran, Romania Photography courtesy of Bran Castle.

Throughout the centuries, Bran Castle has been both battlefield and royal residence. Most famously, however, it is known for being Dracula’s castle. Despite Count Dracula being fictional, this castle has forever been tied to his legacy because of a few lines in a book. In writing Dracula, Bram Stoker’s description of the vampire’s Transylvanian castle is strikingly similar to the real-life appearance of Bran Castle. In particular, Stoker explains that Dracula’s castle is “on the very edge of a terrific precipice.” The same is true of Bran Castle, perched precariously on the top of Mount Izvorul Călimanului. Instead of striking fear into its visitors, however, this position affords Bran Castle with a view of the picturesque village of Bran. As it stands, the medieval fortress is a museum displaying the art and furniture collected by Queen Marie of Romania. A tour will reveal narrow, winding stairways leading through about 60 rooms, many of which are connected by underground passages.

CLASSIC or CRAZE

Terrazzo is making a statement in current design trends. We asked local design professionals if it’s a classic design element or nothing but a craze. Edited by Moe Godat Photography courtesy of Artistic Tile

CLASSIC

Terrazzo is not only a classic, it is steeped in centuries of historic relevance. Having just returned from Italy, I saw ancient examples of beautiful terrazzo floors in Rome, Venice, Sienna, Florence, everywhere we stayed; most of our charming boutique hotels sported a Terrazzo floor and, as one of our walking tour guides pointed out, the floors remain perfect, intact and elegant throughout the perils of history. Magnifico! Kris Keller, The Design Source Ltd. The art form can be traced to ancient times in Egypt, popularized in Italy and then used in the United States in the early 1900s. It was used profusely in older St. Louis homes in Clayton and the Central West End. Although terrazzo is quite expensive it’s lifespan can last up to 100 years. Terrazzo tiles are less expensive and thus popular today. Terrazzo can be used for flooring, furniture, kitchen counters and any other surface that can be uniquely customized and stain resistant. It’s low maintenance and ability to be polished to look new makes it a highly desirable product. The sustainability factor is a plus in my opinion and definitely a classic. Joni Spear, Joni Spear Interiors. It’s not a craze, thank goodness. That means for St. Louis it will remain unique and timeless for the right purpose. For other areas of the country, like Florida, it’s among many popular choices. For commercial spaces, it can be a staple. For Mid-century Design, it can hit the right note. I hope we continue to use it sparingly and with skillful design intent. Given its price tag, I don’t expect it to become overdone. Dana King, Dana King — Design. Build. Remodeling. Terrazzo is a classic! Today's terrazzo has been around for more than 50 years. Homes have had terrazzo on their sunroom floors for 80+ years. A unique stone that dictates the entire space of the room it inhabits! You truly notice its presence! Carol Temple, Pizazz 2 Interiors.   Years of use and the fact that it still looks great makes this material a classic. David Schneider, Schneider Kennedy & PURE Home Design. What is old is new again. Terrazzo actually began in Italy around 1400. It is a poured composite material mixed with chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass and other materials. Terrazzo is easy to pour and create custom flooring and walls treatments. Terrazzo is currently being used again on countertops and flooring tiles. It is popular because it is highly durable, easy to maintain, and will last for the life of the space that it is used in.  Modern uses of terrazzo give a retro feel to a space. The popularity of terrazzo waxes and wanes but due to the customization aspect and high durability, terrazzo will be used for many years and is a classic design element. Barbara Collins, Barbara Collins Interior Design.

CRAZE

It’s definitely a trend. I can see it as a viable choice for a commercial design project for durability but not residentially. I just do not see it taking hold in the Midwest. There are so many other great options out there I struggle to find its appeal. CJ Knapp, Yours By Design.

BOTH

Terrazzo is one material that can be both classic and craze! Time-honored terrazzo as seen in older, stately homes is a classic. Historic homes with graceful foyers and sweeping stairs covered in beautiful dark charcoal terrazzo are elegant and can be beautifully traditional or reinvented into more transitional spaces. However, the trendy multi-color terrazzo making up furniture pieces or modern countertops and flooring is a craze. Kathleen Matthews, Designer Savvy Design Group.
