Have you ever thought that something just wasn't right with a particular space in your home? Maybe it's been bugging you for awhile and you've already made numerous attempts to make the room cohesive by moving practically everything around at least a dozen times to no avail! What could possibly be holding the space back from blossoming into another happy space for you? What's missing? Nature! Think about it. Is there anything more beautiful than a freshly cut lawn after a rainfall or a garden that is bursting with fl wers? The colors of nature provide us with enough inspiration to transform the interior and exterior spaces of our homes into a beautiful canvas of cohesiveness. From the moment you step onto the sidewalk all the way to the front door, color follows you into the house. Matching the outdoor colors of blooming perennials and annuals to a color in your foyer or front of your house results in nature tying the indoors to the outdoors. I do not have a blue house, but I do have a collection of Royal Copenhagen blue plates in my dining room that I inherited from my maternal Danish grandmother. It wasn't until I purchased blue cushions for the front-porch furniture

combined with blooming pots of blue annuals that the dining room finally come together. The view out the dining room window now ties the outdoors to the indoors and the indoors to the outdoors! Stepping outside this time of year and feeling the sun's warmth on your face is what makes this upcoming season so special. Spending time outdoors with family and friends in comfortable and functionally designed spaces (page 72, page 74 and page 80) becomes the perfect backdrop for making long-lasting memories. The additional outdoor living spaces are enjoyed and are just as pretty as our indoor spaces – not to mention the cut fl wers we can bring into our homes from our own blooming gardens. And if you're like me, sometimes I can't force myself to cut the fl wers blooming in my yard because they look perfect as is. What a great excuse to rush off to my favorite florist or nursery to add to my menagerie. Enjoy your summer!

JIM HEETER,

Outdoor Décor Connoisseur EDITED BY MELISSA MAUZY PHOTOGRAPHY BY COLIN MILLER/STRAUSS PEYTON

Take one step inside the Gifted Gardener and you will be surrounded by inspiration for both your home and your garden. Jim Heeter, owner, will help you fall in love with your garden all over again with products and accessories to create a well-done space. From fountains and pots to garden adornments, the Gifted Gardener has everything you need to create the perfect outdoor oasis. SLHL: What is the trend in outdoor accessories for the summer of 2015? Jim: Raw Nature is a dominant trend right now. The usage of reclaimed wood, stone finishes and natural accessories are arriving in everything from planters to lanterns. SLHL: I have my table and chairs, but where do I go from there to make my outdoor space more inviting? Jim: Bring the feel of an indoor living room outdoors by adding perimeter seating areas and cross-functional furniture like an inviting garden bench or a storage ottoman incorporating cushions in any of the amazing new outdoor fabrics. SLHL: Is there a way to use garden ornaments without going overboard? Jim: So much about decorating with ornaments is about creating the unexpected, a surprise around every corner, a temptation to draw you into the gardener's vision. I wouldn’t be a good retailer if I cautioned about going overboard

OWNER OF

THE GIFTED GARDENER, KNOWS HOW TO TRANSFORM A BACK YARD LANDSCAPE INTO A STYLISH SETTING. SLHL: How does interior decorating spill into the garden? Jim: Just like interior design, form follows function outdoors. Whether you’re hosting a summer cocktail party, grilling for two or planting a seasonal vegetable garden, decide how you want to enjoy your outdoor space and plan accordingly SLHL: I love lanterns. Where do they go and what do I do with them? Jim: When the sun goes down get your glow on! Lanterns and string lights are an inexpensive way to set a party atmosphere and extend a summer night on your deck or patio. With the advent of realistic battery candles with timers, I include lanterns in almost every room inside and out! I especially like to group a mix of lanterns down the center of a farm table for a casual dinner, or line your front porch or deck stairs with a progression of cascading lanterns to welcome guests in or out of your home. SLHL: What statuary do you utilize in your landscape? Jim: I have a weakness for rabbits, from statuesque, to whimsical. They now outnumber my guests at summer soires. In my garden, there’s never a hare out of place! See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

BONSAI BUCKA OOS

Cass Bonsai Gardens’ Ciskowski brothers ply wood in the business where they got their roots.

BY BARBARA E. STEFANO PHOTOGRAPHY BY KIM DILLON

Brothers Milt and Brian Ciskowskis' trajectory toward their current calling has had as many twists and turns as one of their many manipulated trees. The two started their careers on their grandfather’s farm, where they raised cattle and helped in the flo ist shop he founded on Cass Avenue in 1910. They eventually moved the shop and greenhouse to North St. Louis, closing up and re-emerging as Cass Bonsai Gardens at 6145 Quercus Grove Road in rural Edwardsville, IL, in 1998. The bonsai biz indulges the brothers’ lifelong green thumb and a bonsai passion that, for Brian, 60, started about 30 years ago with a series of unfortunate junipers. “Most people’s first [bonsai] tree is the little garden juniper,” says Brian. “That’s usually the first one they kill, and most people give up after the first one. I killed my first three.” Inexpensive, hardy and green year-round,

22

they’re also good bonsai starters because they can take shape so quickly. “Those are really instantly gratifying because they already have that sort of [bonsai] character,” says Milt. “A little pruning and, within an hour, you can have it looking like something.” “You don’t even need a lot of fancy equipment,” Brian adds. “If you’ve got scissors and wire around the house, you can get something going.” But, while juniper may be the novice’s bonsai of choice, the Ciskowskis work with a large variety – ficu , pines, maples, fruit trees, tropical – both native to the region, and imported from all over the country and around the world. Everything’s ripe for experimentation if pruning and repotting are properly timed. “One guy I know has a poison ivy tree that he’s been working on for years,” says Brian. “He’s not allergic to it, [but] no one else will touch it.”

5/19/15 3:29 PM


The brothers pot their specimens in a soilless mix of fir bark and a fi ed clay product that prevents overwatering. While Milt, 63, manages the growing, it’s Brian who manipulates it. Careful pruning of the branches steers the shape, while trimming large roots encourages the growth of many smaller roots that keep the plant healthy and limit its size naturally. Then comes the wiring that forces growth to create the desired look. “It’s like putting on braces,” says Brian. “You put the wire on really tight and let it bend. You just have to be careful – don’t overdo it. You can always go back and tighten it bit more if it’s too loose. When the wire starts cutting into the bark after a few months, we take it off sl wly. You don’t want it to cut into the bark, but you want it to scar a little. The calluses help it keep its shape.” Prices for specimens sold at Cass Bonsai Gardens can range wildly,

based on the materials and time put into their care. A small tree for the desktop can be had for $15 to $25; mediums, $75 to $100. Then there are the large, decades-old, imported trees Brian has worked since picking up the art 30 years ago, that can run into the thousands. “The most I ever sold one for was $12,000,” says Brian. “It takes the right tree, the right time and size, and the right buyer. I have a friend in New Orleans who sold one for $50,000.” For those who’d like to try their hand at the art, Cass Bonsai Gardens sells starter materials that run about $25. And, at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, you can join the Ciskowskis with the St. Louis Bonsai Society at the Missouri Botanical Gardens to pick up tips and tricks.

Parlor Games Bar Les Frères dishes rustic French fare an intimate, Parisian parlor setting. BY BARBARA E. STEFANO PHOTOGRAPHY BY COLIN MILLER/STRAUSS PEYTON

Bar Les Frères was never supposed to be a restaurant. When Zoë Robinson opened the Paris-inspired bar on Wydown in Clayton in 2012, she really only envisioned it as a cozy waiting area for patrons itching to get into her popular Italian restaurant, I Fratellini, across the street. But the bid for a liquor license required food, and Robinson is not one to do food halfway. “We didn’t mean to do a full menu, but people were having hors d’ouerves, and we thought, ‘Well, let’s do a full menu,” she says. “The kitchen is small, so we wanted to go with very classic dishes and just do them well.”

26

Robinson expanded the original bar into the neighboring space in 2013, adding a contrasting chartreuse to the walls in the new room. The combined 1,500-square-foot space gets its warmth both from the sunny hues and from classic marble and dark wood tables and fi tures, upholstered chairs and modern and classic art that evokes the intimate and welcoming parlor of a hospitable Parisian. “I like people to think of it as a romantic space, but it’s also very lively and festive,” says Robinson. “It’s a nice mix of masculine and feminine with taxidermy, leather, skins and oil paintings. It’s all candlelit, so it’s nice and warm.”

Executive Chef Ny Vongsaly, who also helms the kitchens of I Fratellini and Robinson’s Bobo Noodle House on Skinker Boulevard, keeps Bar Les Frères’ menu rustic and traditional. Robinson swears customers would revolt if French comfort foods like lobster bisque, potato blinis, gruyere souffl and Vongsaly’s bouillabaisse (brimming with lobster, scallops, monkfish, clams and mussels in a roasted tomato broth) ever dropped off the menu. Still, Vongsaly experiments when he can, offering his own handmade Toulouse Sausage and a rotation of desserts that includes variations on French classics: Pot de Crème au Café, chocolate Grand Marnier mousse, crème brûlée and the floating island, to name a few. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for more information.

THE COOKING SCHOOL MENU POTATO BLINIS: Butter and sour cream add richness to these pint-sized, savory potato pancakes. They’re topped with a dollop of crème fraiche and caviar. CHEESE SOUFFLÉ: Equal parts gruyere and frothy egg whites are at the heart of this airy starter that looks more intimidating to prepare than it really is. It’s spiced with a bit of cayenne and chopped chives. “With a little salad on the side, it’s wonderful,” says Robinson. COQ AU VIN BLANC: In this summer twist on a wintertime classic, chicken legs and thighs are slow-braised then poached in a dry white wine. The mushrooms and pearl onions that typically accompany the red-wine version are replaced with carrots and fl vored further with tarragon, fla -leaf parsley and chives. “The herbs are really the key to that dish,” Robinson says. Vongsaly serves the decadently tender meat with creamy celery root puree. POACHED PEAR: “It’s poached with red wine – something fruity,” says Vongsaly. “I would say probably less than an hour, so they don’t get too soft.” Once the wine – a Malbec or another fruit-forward variety – soaks in with a bit of sugar (and perhaps a dash of lemon juice to balance out sweeter pears), the resulting juice is reduced to create a beautiful, burgundy-colored sauce. Vongsaly chills the fruits, then fills them with uns eetened cinnamon whipped cream and drizzles them with the chilled reduction.

When there is sense in the details, the details make sense.

In discussing elements of mid-century modern design, one will likely encounter an amalgam of descriptions most throw around aimlessly. It’s classic, it’s organic, it’s simple, boring, strange, retro, disposable, on and on and on with a wealth of others depending on who’s doing the describing and how many cocktails are involved. Certainly it’s been all of those things, for better or for worse. But occasionally one approaches examples that are anything but aimless, which embrace a concept mid-century modern embodied at its very best: mindfulness. “We tried to plan out every square inch of this place in a creative way,” Kent Turner says of the little more than 1,500-square-foot condo he and wife, Susan, purchased on Skinker in January 2014. Following gutting and six, or maybe eight, months of measuring, planning, tweaking, re-measuring, detailing and a bit more planning, the couple moved into the space on the eighth floor of the high ise. “When we demolished the interior, we retained a portion of the core where the guest bath and laundry are located,” Turner says of one of the few territorial markers in the remodeled floo plan. “We retained some of the walls that define the bedroom, master bath and closet/dressing room.” But not much more. From the dark walnut floo ing by Boardwalk Floors, to the even darker custom cabinetry covering the south wall of the living room by Full Circle Design Works, to the all-new shining hardware and leading-edge lighting fi tures, the condo is a study in invention and mindful restraint for a major renovation. Keep what works, ditch what doesn’t. Evaluate and repeat. But, always keep the walls white. Turner sits in a chromed tubular-steel chair fit ed with black leather cushions on the fringes of a deep, richly colored rug. He reclines with a structured poise – ankle resting on kneecap, arms bent on the chair rests at 90 degrees, palms touching and fingers squeezing and resting, squeezing and resting. He’s the planner, the STLOUISHOMESMAG.COM JUNE/JULY 2015

pragmatist. A proclaimed minimalist and president at Cannon Design by trade who seamlessly translates his working values into his home life, as evidenced by his least favorite part of the condo. “You may not have noticed,” he says, sitting before a glass coffee table large enough for a coffee house roaster to sit upon, flan ed by light couches as sleek as they are comfortable. “Because no one does, ever. No one notices but you, Kent,” Susan interrupts with a laugh. She was right, however. I hadn’t noticed. Turner has an acute sore spot for the rounded corners of the vast marble countertop in the bright and spacious kitchen designed for a dinner party social phenomenon: everyone ends up standing in the kitchen. “I think about them often. A lot,” he says, turning to his wife who sits smiling, stroking their Welsh terrier, Brady. Susan brings a familiar ease to the space, like the refle tion of the beautiful day shining back into the sitting area from a textured Italian metal cabinet holding family photographs and keepsakes. “It’s just now starting to feel like home,” she says. “My Christmas cactus is just blooming and my orchids are coming back.” And her blooms indoors aren’t the only signs of spring witnessed in the condo. Eighty feet below is the western edge of Forest Park, even more a sight to behold when it develops an organic skyline showcasing the spectacular, if brief, seasonal changeover in full view. The Turner’s entire eastern wall, steel and glass, frames the only uncontrollable aspect of the home, which – with no effort at all – highlights the natural beauty, lines and shapes of the space. Fundamental elements of modernism. This meshing of effortless and uncontrolled, pared down and planned is where the condo finds its roots in the design movement. Built in 1962, the building was designed to allow residents gracious living with unprecedented high-rise access to the natural beauty of the park. Though a number of high rises have been constructed

throughout metropolitan St. Louis, the Skinker building remains one of the best, if not one of the only, mid-century modern structures in the city. Arguable nothing built in the last few decades rival the fundamental elegance and design integrity of this building. When it came to moving from the sprawling and full Central West End home the couple shared on Pershing for 16 years, the high rise by the park was all that would do. “I miss hearing my footsteps in the empty hallways,” says Turner, “but that’s about it.” For the Turners, it took considerable downsizing to upgrade. Furniture was donated to children and family members, trinkets and heirlooms were moved to the lake house and there was a culling of black coats. “He said I had too many,” Susan says, looking into the generous walk-in closet situated between the master – and only – bedroom and the master bath. The closet included, storage space was paid a particular level of attention in the redesign. "Particular" meaning objects like game boards, craft supplies, shoes and yes, coats, were noted and meticulously fit ed into their respective spaces. They’re an exercise in mindful restraint, the couple and condo. And Susan says she chooses her “battles.” “If I really want something,” she says, “I put my foot down and ask for it. Otherwise, it’s reassuring to know Kent is planning for the rest. It’s one less thing to worry about.” “Susan was very patient with me, as she always is,” Turner explains in reference to choosing 801 S. Skinker to be home. “She was freaked out, wondering if this could possibly work.” But is has, and her nook in the corner housing her desk, artwork from grandchildren and a prime position in the cozy corner of the casual sitting area, is symbiosis in style; complete with an abundance of abstract color field canvases and art pieces, some by artists known to the world, others who are the world to the homeowners. “We have a lot of art, art is very important to us… we wanted to entertain and open it up. And to have storage built in,” Turner says as his eyes sweep the entirety of the condo, an act that takes all of eight seconds to accomplish in full. “Our inspiration wasn’t much more complex than that.” See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

The brick floo ing is original, and the trompe l’oiel limestone arches and walls were created by St. Louis muralist Claude Breckwoldt. This page: The spacious foyer opens to the step-up living room, illustrating the multiple levels that add interest to the home’s interior architecture.

IMPECCABLY RENOVATED OVER A 15-YEAR PERIOD, THIS FRENCH TUDOR IN LADUE IS A TRUE MASTERPIECE.

Purchased in 1999, this stunning residence in Ladue had thoroughly captivated the new owners with its lush grounds and classic French Tudor styling. Embellished with rough-hewn beams, finely crafted woodwork, arched entryways and magnificent fi eplaces, the multi-level home was built in 1925 and symbolizes the luxury of its era. A number of changes would be necessary to suit the couple’s lifestyle, and they planned to begin immediately, renovating the home in stages. Still, a remarkable coincidence seemed to indicate this was the place destined for them to raise their family. Native St. Louisans and high school sweethearts, the couple were amazed to learn that the home’s original owner was the obstetrician who had delivered the husband! In 2000, the first items on the renovation agenda were to flip the garage to the opposite side of the home and add a master suite above

the kitchen. An exhaustive search led to architect Howard Koblenz. “Howard ‘got’ the house,” says the wife. “Unlike some of the architects we’d consulted, he didn’t want to change everything. He understood why we loved this home and was respectful of its architecture when redesigning the spaces to meet our needs.” The former garage was converted to an offic on the upper level, with a billiard room and wine cellar on the lower level. Then, the upstairs bedrooms were remodeled and an upper-level laundry room added. Fast forward to 2013, and it was time to tackle the kitchen – a gut rehab that also presented the opportunity to add a casual dining area. The wife envisioned this space as a “conservatory,” or more accurately, an orangerie, since a true conservatory has a glass roof. Again, Koblenz was brought in to create the architectural design.

Opposite: Sunlit and spectacular, the newly-added orangerie serves as the family’s informal dining area.

This page: A drop-leaf side table provides extra serving space in the orangerie, and an array of pressed ferns from Jules Pass Antiques lends a touch of nature.

Once the major structural work was completed, the owner “needed someone to pull the house together and make it livable.” Friends referred her to Garison Salinas, architectural design consultant and principal of Garrison Ltd. Salinas’ tasks included unifying the spaces, making them “comfortable and welcoming, not too formal”; finding places to showcase stored antiques and pieces from the couple’s international travels; and choosing furnishings that would be sufficiently durable for entertaining and regular use by the couple’s three young daughters and their friends. Salinas established the overall theme in the entry foyer, retaining its

original brick floo , adding a wood ceiling, and enhancing the walls and archways with a faux limestone motif designed by Claude Breckwoldt. The foyer also forecasts a significant feature of the home – multiple raised and sunken levels that give each living area its own sense of identity, while maintaining the openness of the floo plan. Visible from the foyer, the step-up living room is dominated by a massive fi eplace, rough-hewn ceiling beam, and classic pediment windows. “The woodwork was a big issue,” explains the owner. “It’s one of the things we loved about the house, but some had oxidized.” Restored by master wood artisan Rich Acton, the woodwork is now

an orginal, rich espresso. Formerly painted, the fi eplace mantel and limestone surround were stripped, an original dogwood blossom motif was carved into the mantel at the time the house was built, and Breckwoldt enhanced the limestone effect. Display niches at one end of the living room were transformed into faux-limestone keystones. On the opposing wall, a small closet was converted into a dry bar, and an open arch above the grand piano was railed with wrought iron. At the owner’s request, the room’s furnishings are “organic, textural – and movable,” allowing guests to rearrange the seating for conversation areas. An exquisite, pre-owned antique settee determined the soft sage and light taupe cream color scheme, which is carried through by a Lillian August sofa, upholstered in Belgian linen, with polished bronze legs and nailhead trim; Baker slipper chairs; and side chairs in a grosgrain basket weave. Nesting tables with French antique mirror tops serve as a coffee table, and the neutral wool-and-silk area rug was custom-made to accommodate the room’s large dimensions and contoured spaces. Describing the dining room as “so European,” Salinas calls attention to the faux-limestone walls, decorative ceiling and inlaid 18th-century French gondola table which can seat 16. “There are no nails in the entire table,” he noted, “and we had it completely restored to museum qyality.” The graceful dining chairs were reupholstered in mohair; bronze-toned Dupioni silk drapes line the windows; an antique sideboard fills one wall; and two exquisite curved cabinets, one suspended above the other, provide storage for glassware. Concerned that a chandelier would detract from the spectacular dining ensemble, Salinas illuminated the room with low-voltage, museum-quality can lights. Accessible from the adjacent butler’s pantry, the pine-paneled, step-down family room was originally the library and is now a hub of family activity. Salinas raised the ceiling to add spatial volume, and Fusion Media Systems disguised the large-screen TV with a dramatic mirror above the original Michelangelo marble-faced fi eplace. Seating includes a comfy sofa in a durable cotton/poly herringbone, nailhead-trimmed velour swivel chairs from Carolyn Peterson Design, cushioned wicker and ladderback chairs, and a large ottoman with a crackle-finished bas . The butler’s pantry was opened to the newly designed kitchen, creating a vast space for the wife’s culinary talents, as well as beverage and buffet service. A collaborative effort of Salinas, Jim Baygents of National Kitchen & Bath, and Koblenz, the kitchen revolves around

Alabaster-and-antique brass lights from Visual Comfort are suspended above the island, and three separate sink areas – one in the island and one at each end of the kitchen – allow for multiple functions to take place simultaneously.

A LOVELY LANDSCAPE brimming with family memories old and new.

or most people, one garden would be enough. But not for Kathy Dubuque. In the six years she and her husband John have lived in their Ladue residence, Kathy has created fi e or maybe six different gardens, depending upon how you count. All surround the couple’s European, country-style home; all have their own personalities. In keeping with the charming, Old World look of the home, a courtyard garden, fenced by boxwood, filled with hydrangeas and highlighted by garden statuary, accents the front of the home. At the back, you have your choice. There is a sun-filled cutting garden overfl wing with conefl wers, zinnias, snapdragons, liatris and phlox. Not only is it colorful and beautiful, it allows Kathy to cut bouquets for the house at a moment’s notice. A few steps away, just outside the back door, an herb and kitchen garden, literally ripe for the picking, flou ishes. Filled with blueberries, strawberries, multiple tomato varieties, pole beans, sage, basil, chives and pots of mint, what’s for dinner is right at hand.

54

Stroll past all the color, but still close to the house, and you’ll encounter a bit of leafy green serenity in a small water garden. Encompassing a water lily-filled pond and waterfall, the water garden is strategically located to bring the soothing, rippling sound of fl wing water into the master bedroom. Nestled in the center of the yard, a free-form swimming pool beckons. It blends into the surrounding landscape via a collar of willowy liriope/ monkey grass around the exterior edge of the pool deck. On the side away from the house, the liriope cleverly conceals a drainage area at the bottom of a slight hill. Just up that slope, Kathy’s shady, white garden literally glows. From the first dogwoods through frost, silver-leaved ’Jack Frost’ brunnera , white-striped hostas, white-leaved caladiums and white impatiens, all backed by feathery ferns, add light to the landscape even after dark. A flags one walkway from the pool also provides access to Katy's cottage surrounded by boxwoods, rose of Sharon and five airy, multi-trunked, serviceberry trees.

You would think those lush, beautifully planted areas would be enough for any home. But Kathy has one more special garden spot to peek into and it whispers its appeal to garden visitors of every age. Tucked into the side yard, a small, ornate, wrought-iron gate hints that there is something behind it to explore. The wee fairy perched at the center of the gate offers a clue to the enchantment down the gravel pathway. It was the gate that called to her from the pages of a Mackenzie-Childs catalog which began it all, Kathy explains, detailing her fascination with the fairy garden. “Then, I added statues and wind chimes and bird houses,” she continues. “I found a tiny wrought-iron table and chairs and a small bench. I collect where ever I go. I found a big blue mushroom at an antique store in Palm Beach. A friend brought me tree stumps from their farm. I like to use things with solar batteries that light up at night, even though they don’t always work. I even have a tiny campfi e.” To add to the night-time charm, Kathy's husband, John strings small white lights through the trees. “It’s a job to put it out each spring and take it in each

58

fall,” she admits, but well worth it in the delight it brings. In addition to creating the make-believe world for her own fi e grandchildren, Kathy also holds fairy garden parties for the grandchildren of friends. “It is kind of like doll houses. You can go crazy with a fairy garden,“ she notes, laughing about her passion for collecting tiny garden ornaments. “ When I start to put in the donkey and the cart, people need to tell me to stop.” A series of lush, over-fl wing window boxes filled with Wave petunias, wishbone fl wers and caladium tie the garden directly to the structure of the house. Around the property, a screen of viburnums and arborvitae keep all the spaces private and personal. “I’ve gotten so I really love arborvitae, she says. “They provide such a soft, feathery backdrop.” Kathy can’t truly recall when her gardening genes came to the fore but the passion is defini ely there. “I’m really self-taught,” she says. “And I’m lucky to have a lot of people who have helped me by giving me good advice.” Her own talents and her advice-giving friends succeeded so well that last year her garden was selected to be on the prestigious

Missouri Botanical Garden tour of private gardens. “One of the people who came through the garden on the tour told me her earliest memory of me was when I was planting petunias outside of an apartment building in Richmond Heights,” Kathy recalls. In addition to being beautiful, Kathy’s garden refle ts the warmth of her personality and her love of family. Throughout the various spaces, objects from her family, her husband’s family and previous gardens accent the landscape. Among the boxwood and hydrangeas, a somewhat “persnickety” fountain featuring a flu e-playing Pan and an armillary were both in the garden at a previous house. There are urns, tables and chairs and even an olive gathering pot with family history that have found their way into the various spaces. “It’s really a garden of gathered memories,” she says.

60

Also throughout the gardens are bird houses and bird-friendly plants and shrubs. “Every single bird house has a bird family in it,” Kathy says proudly. As a testimonial to the hospitality offered to the feathered community, one bird left a calling card. Shortly after the Dubuques had sealed the driveway, a wild turkey strolled through the still wet sealant leaving foot prints on the front walk, which the couple has seen no reason to remove. While others might spend weekends in a wide variety of recreational activities, Kathy reserves Sundays for checking water in the various gardens and giving everything a nice dose of plant food. “I have the house of my dreams and the garden of my dreams,” she says. “It doesn’t get any better than that.” See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

WATER LILIES

WATER HYACINTH

Tropical or hardy water lilies are a must for your pond or water feature. Not only do water lilies bloom all summer long, they also provide shade and protection for your fish and help eep the pond water clean. David Sherwood, Sherwood’s Forest.

“The Water Hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) is an easy-to- grow, free-floating plant. The delicate, purple fl wers bloom throughout the season and add a pleasing splash of color to the pond. They are great for surface coverage and algae elimination. They also provide a protection from predators for koi and other fish. A vigorous reproducer, it is important to remove excess growth as needed.” Jim Graeler, Chesterfield Valley Nursery.

LION KING JAPANESE IRIS, IRIS ENSATA

WATER MARIGOLD

“The Lion King Japanese Iris, Iris ensata, is absolutely exquisite! Nothing less could describe the incredible show of this Japanese iris. These majestic plants grow to a stately height of 4 feet and are topped with gigantic 8-inch fl wers. Fully double, and much larger than the species, each ruffled petal disp ys a wide, grape purple edge that feathers into the pure white center. During the growing season, it thrives in standing water.” Ann Lapides, Sugar Creek Gardens.

“Water Marigold is an attractive water-garden plant with bright green, half-dollar sized foliage with lovely fl wers that stand up above the foliage and bloom from morning to afternoon. The foliage sits flat against the water making them ideal resting spots for frogs. Water Marigolds are a hardy, non-invasive choice for your water garden.” Julie Evans Straatmann, Passiglia’s Nursery & Garden Center.

EXPERIENCE MISSOURI'S

native habitat BY HOLLY BERTHOLD PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN

The Shaw Nature Reserve (SNR) encompasses 2,400 acres of natural Ozark landscape, breathtaking Meramec River frontage, and an extraordinary diversity of native plant and animal habitats. The Missouri Botanical Garden founded the Shaw Nature Reserve, formerly known as Shaw Arboretum, in 1925 when coal smoke in St. Louis threatened the living plant collections at the Garden. The orchid collection was moved to the Reserve in 1926, but pollution in the city abated before it was necessary to move the entire plant collection. The Reserve became a focus for native habitat management and restoration in the 1980s. As a result, the Reserve is able to offer 14 miles of hiking trails through an array of Ozark border landscapes, including forest, glades, tallgrass prairie, oak-hickory woodlands, savannas and wetlands. David Orthwein, who serves on the advisory board, explains his passion for Shaw, “What started out as day visits to the Reserve in my youth has evolved into an appreciation for these unique habitats. I even created my own prairie fifteen years ago and now have a beautiful landscape of coreopsis, Indian paintbrush, black-eyed Susan and Echinacea and species that are only found in well-established, mature prairies such as the shooting star. The

66

Reserve’s prairie restoration is probably the best I’ve seen – it’s very inspiring.” SNR provides visitors a uniquely varied experience of Missouri’s rich biological heritage. The Whitmire Wildflower Garden is a five-acre demonstration garden with paths that meander beneath massive oaks, over water and through beautiful displays of native wildfl wers. A home gardening demonstration area provides information and examples of the Midwest’s hardiest and most attractive native wildfl wers, shrubs and trees. Several historic buildings are also found at the Reserve including The Bascom House, an elegant brick home built in 1879 by former Confederate Col. Thomas W.B. Crews, The Maritz Trail House, a rustic stone and log picnic pavilion, serving as a meeting point for many of the Reserve’s hiking trails and The Dana Brown Overnight Center a complex of historic buildings from the 1850s, carefully taken down at their original locations and reconstructed at the Reserve. The Shaw Nature Reserve is located on Interstate 44 in Gray Summit, Mo., 22 miles west of the I-44/I-270 interchange at exit #253 (two exits west of Allenton/Eureka). The Nature Reserve is open everyday. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

THE VINEYARDS

In Summer

Basking in the sunshine in Italy’s legendary Tuscan Hills

BY LORRAINE RAGUSEO PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF QUINTESSENTIAL WINES

North of the equator, if the weather cooperates in June, July and August, the world’s vineyards grow lush and verdant. Much like the avid St. Louis gardener, it is during this period that the experienced vignerons, winemakers and vineyard managers know that their role is largely to ensure that the vines take fullest advantage of what Mother Nature may throw at them, as their leaves grow larger and greener, and their fruit matures. It is no accident that most of the areas from where the world’s best wines come are also major tourist destinations, especially in summer. The graceful vines, almost always in rows and usually in the traditional trellis-style growing system, where the plants climb up wooden stakes and across wires strung between each stake, add to the already picturesque hillsides and valleys where vineyards are most often found. The Cortonese family has been most fortunate to tend to their vineyards in one of the most beautiful wine regions in Italy, just outside the Tuscan town of Montalcino. Long time Tuscan farmer Leonardo Cortonese

68

planted a few Sangiovese grapevines on his land in 1970 (replacing some olive trees, which was the farm’s main crop at that time). They have grown into more than 19 acres in what is now considered the best parcels of the most famous parts in Italy’s fabled Tuscany wine region (made even more famous by the book and movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” and other romantic travelogue/home improvement-style novels). Leonardo’s son Marco and his sons are making world-class Brunello di Montalcino from these incredibly dark and juicy grapes. Marco is in charge of vineyard management, while one son Tommaso, a college-educated oenologist, makes the wines, and another son, Giulio, works in winery management. Like all farming, it is hard work. But, when it’s taking place among such beautiful scenery as in this sun-kissed part of Italy, and your work is a labor of love, it is much more enjoyable. The Cortonese farmhouse where Marco was raised – a typically rustic-looking Tuscan stone villa and barns dating back to the late 19th Century – sits on a rise, surrounded by the family’s vineyards.

Tommaso Cortonese, co-owner of La Mannella, and also the winemaker conducting a “green harvest” to prune away grape bunches that do not look like they will yield superior fruit and to help the grapes left on the vines to become more concentrated in flavor.

In summer, it’s not uncommon for the family to dine al fresco on one of the farmhouses’ many patios. As this part of Italy sees many hot, sunny days, light fare is preferred. There may well be steaks grilling nearby that will be served with Tuscan white beans and roasted tomatoes. To start, the traditional Panzanella Salad is usually served. Stale Tuscan bread is softened in water and extra-virgin olive oil from La Mannella’s own trees, then tossed with balsamic vinegar, lettuce, diced tomatoes and cucumbers – the epitome of elegant simplicty. The steaks are a great match for the Brunellos while the Rosso di Montalcino is a better choice for the salad. When you see how the Cortonese’s enjoy life while tending to their vineyards in summer, you can easily understand why so many people flock to Montalcino and other vineyard-laden wine regions around the world for a few days, a few weeks, or a lifetime.

Small Space, GRAND DESIGN

THIS ALL-SEASON SPACE MIGHT BE SMALL ON SIZE, BUT IS TRULY GRAND ON STYLE, UTILITY AND INGENUITY. BY SARA GRAHAM PHOTOGRAPHY BY KIM DILLON

The challenge for this Clayton back yard was to create an outdoor living space within a very constrained footprint. The final product is a masterpiece. A pool, Jacuzzi, deck, grill, fi e pit and lush landscaping combine gracefully on the plot with, what feels like, plenty of room to spare, thanks to Baker Pool design team. The space is a natural extension of the house, providing an indoor/ outdoor area for entertaining year-round that seamlessly extends the home’s contemporary interior design to the outdoors (and vice versa). French doors open wide directly onto the deck from the kitchen, inviting easy fl w between the two spaces. Even when the doors are closed, the glass panes offer a view directly to the pool, centered on the fountain. Landscape designer Scott Gamelin with Flora Design and Landscape fittingly describes the back yard as “a large shade garden with a pool in the middle.” When the homeowners purchased the home in 2012, they wanted to preserve as many trees on the property as possible, including a fl wering cherry and a fl wering pear tree around which the deck was built. The rest of the landscaping features low-maintenance flowering shade plants, such as hydrangeas, hostas, azaleas, iris and creeping Jenny and was designed to provide privacy, seasonal color and a connection to nature in an urban environment.

All of this beautifully set the stage for the primary feature of the backyard – a limestone-rimmed saltwater pool with cascading waterfall and large “floating steps.” The waterfall adds height and dimension while also masking noise from the nearby streets of downtown Clayton. The steps add yet another layer of design intrigue, while also providing a pathway to the back lounging deck. It’s a perfect example of “form following function,” explains Baker Pool Construction Director Robert Warren. Building the walkway into the pool in lieu of a sidewalk along the side introduced a dramatic design element and allowed the small pool to be extended by an additional fi e feet. The now 16’ x 28’ pool maxes out at a depth of six feet with a steep slope to the deep end creating an ideal depth for water aerobics. The pool is heated to allow usage from April through October. The deck surface layered with tile is just as impressive. On one side is a world-class outdoor kitchen, and on the other, a rectangular fire pit with seating for 10. The kitchen area features a stainless steel grill, refrigerator, counter-mounted beverage cooler and matching stainless steel drawers for storage. The space is framed by a tall brick wall that defines the space while also providing privacy from the neighboring property just on the other side. The gas fi e pit, a cozy gathering space

on chilly nights, is constructed of limestone and filled with colored glass. The deck is continued on the far side of the pool with a lounging area that extends out over the water (and also hides the poolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fil ers). When the pool is drained and covered for the winter, the hot tub, located just below the deck, becomes a cold-weather retreat. Though integrated into the backyard design with matching ipe Brazilian hardwood facing, the plumbing and heating system is separate from the pool so that it can be used year-round. The entire space is transformed at night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; copper pendant down lighting installed in the trees and copper perimeter balusters provide striking architectural lighting to the pool, waterfall, large trees and garden sculpture. Eight hidden speakers and a subwoofer provide directional sound throughout the area. All of the lighting, speakers, waterfall and pool heater are controlled by a phone app. This all-season space might be small on size, but is truly grand on style, utility and ingenuity.

BY THE LAKE

BY JAMIE SIEBRASE PHOTOGRAPHY BY KIM DILLON

With dramatic landscaping and unexpected finishe , two Lake Saint Louis homeowners give lakeside recreation a whole new look.

“We had no plan,” says homeowner Larry Malashock, who purchased a rundown three-seasons home during his transition into retirement. The whole place was a fi er-upper, and the overhaul started in the main home. After expanding and remodeling there, Malashock turned to the ramshackle pool house. “It was basically a toilet and sink when we started,” he says, explaining, “It was built on stilts, and the support was giving way.” The first step, then, was demolition; once the original structure was cleared, interior designer Ellen Kurtz of Ellen Kurtz Interiors helped the Malashocks craft a chic and comfortable resort-inspired cabana with high ceilings and an array of plush, modern finishes: oversized fans, an intricate LED and solar lighting scheme by Extreme Electrical, poolside misters, a wireless sound system — even faux palm trees from a supplier in

74

Wichita, KS. There’s a taste of the tropics inside, too, where small aqua pebbles give the bath and changing rooms an elegant yet relaxed feel. “We wanted something that was functional as more than just a bathroom,” Malashock says. Hence the pool house’s lower level, working as an offseason storage unit. And, of course, there’s the bar, too, which comes fully equipped with a kegerator, ice maker, refrigerator and grill — all positioned behind a sprawling lake-blue granite countertop the homeowners stumbled upon at Bedrock International. “They love the color blue,” says Kurtz who, based on the countertop selection, picked Oceanside Glasstile from ICS Surfaces for the bar’s backsplash and incorporated blue and rust hues into a mosaic the Malashocks’ handy sons installed. Up above, a showstopping polyurethane-coated piece purchased at an art show in Marco Island

competes with Cardinals games on the flat screen — both off which add welcome pops of red to the color scheme. After resurfacing the existing pool, the Malashocks built a waterside deck they’d later top with heavy Amini’s wrought-iron furniture capable of withstanding lakeside gusts. And, it’s these layers the homeowners cultivated that really enhance the resort-inspired ambiance. “You go from house to pool to a deck with a bar then down to another deck with seating by the lake — not many people have so many different tiers,” Kurtz says. Another novelty is expertly plotted landscaping between the top and bottom tiers — and, that wasn’t so easy to achieve. “ The previous owners had over-landscaped, and you felt like you were walking through a tunnel to get outside,” says Malashock. Beyond that, the rest

of the area was gravel and weeds. “We had the most horrible looking yard on the lake,” says the homeowner. Over fi e months, Malashock – with the help of Nature’s Re-Creations – transformed his vacant hill into an inspired waterfall and boulder-infused slope that draws the good kind of attention. The task required a structural engineer, a 250-gallon underground reservoir and two massive retaining walls. After digging boulders into the hillside, Malashock integrated plants that were “more about beauty than about being indigenous,” he explains. Day lilies and roses, then, were bright choices — ones visitors see up-close when hopping patios by way of path or on the unexpected built-in tram. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

BEAUTIFICATION

A BARE BACK YARD IS TRANSFORMED BY A STATEMENT STRUCTURE. BY SAMANTHA HUBBARD PHOTOS COURTESY OF CALIFORNIA CUSTOM DECKS

A barren back yard is no place for a beautiful bride. With an outdoor wedding in mind, these homeowners enlisted the help of California Custom Decks to design their dream deck in time for their spring nuptials. “We didn’t have any particular hard-set goals designed in mind initially,” says Mike Brueggenjohann of California Custom Decks. “They wanted something that was going to look really nice, really kind of pack the punch as far as the aesthetics of the area.” With such a significant amount of outdoor space, the design opportunities were endless. Brainstorming turned into a rough draft, and after a few tweaks and adjustments, the final dra t was given the green light. Step by step, once the building begins, it usually takes about two

80

and a half to three weeks to complete construction. From day one, the deck is built in full width from the ground up. Construction crews begin by marking the 750-square-foot area and digging the holes for the structure’s supports. After inspections are passed, piers are put in place and framing begins. “The gazebo is really the starting point for the detailing,” says Mike. A pagoda roof with a cupola top covers the gazebo while decorative Victorian braces fill each corner between the roof and the structural posts. Victorian era spindles and a classic white coloring continues the Victorian theme throughout the deck’s design including an arched bridge walkway. An eco-friendly wood alternative floor color from Fiberon incorporates

AIR CONDITIONERS 101 How do I know if it is time to replace my air conditioner? Marc: A rule of thumb is that if a system is more than 10 years old and a repair will cost more than 25% of a replacement, then replacement makes more sense. What are the benefits of replacing my air conditioner? Marc: Three things...EFFICIENCY, RELIABILITY & TECHNOLOGY. The last decade has brought big changes in air conditioners. The new generation uses much less energy. If you are replacing a 20 year old air conditioner, you may find that a new one will use 50% less electric. Also, new technologies offer better comfort and much better dehumidification. What else do I need to know? Replace the whole system at once: An air conditioner consists of two pieces, the compressor that sits outside and the evaporator coil that sits on top of your furnace. Peplacing just one of those two parts is a band-aid, not a complete replacement. Request proof of efficiency: Air conditioner efficiency is measured in SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). Manufacturer websites brag about SEER ratings BUT actual system effiency depends on the ‘match’ of the air conditioner, coil and furnace being installed. Ask your contractor for an ‘AHRI’ certificate to back up their claims. Get the size right: A qualified contractor should select the proper system size by doing a “ACCA Compliant Manual J Load Calculations.” Preplan: It seems like furnaces and air conditioners always fail on the hottest or coldest days of the year and you are forced into making a big decision without time to research. SmartHouse specializes in pre-planning eventual replacements so you can get the best results with the least hassle.

a color streaked wood look that mirrors the multicolored woodland background of the back yard. Brown hues contrast the crisp white paint, creating fl w between the structure and the surrounding forest. The floor panels of the lower portion of the deck connected to the gazebo are laid out horizontally, which gives a visually interesting juxtaposition next to the angled panels of the upper section. The process of turning this plain outdoor area into an attractive addition to the home went smoothly. “They had an idea of what they wanted to accomplish,” says Mike. “We were able to package together the description, detail and drawings to replicate what that is so they could visually understand what we were going to do.” From start to finish, the outdoor transformations are tailor-made for the homeowners. Using their ideas and imagination, “it’s adding a

82

unique element to the house, a unique space that they don’t already have inside,” says Mike. “When we build these different areas, whether it’s a deck or a gazebo or a room, we look at these projects as outdoor family rooms.” Mike hopes that by building a spacious outdoor oasis, he can encourage families to gravitate toward spending more time and making long lasting memories together. A monumental moment in this couple’s life occurred on their California Custom Deck. The homeowners were married in the gazebo as family and friends watched from surrounding chairs. While their back yard is now a place for future family bonding, it will also stand as a fi ture in marking their family’s beginning. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

Transparent Landscape, Seoul, South Korea PHOTOGRAPHY BY FERNANDO GUERRA

The garden of SAMPIO Laboratory, a Korean food company, has an interactive installation designed by UnSangDong Architects. The “Memorial Pot” is a stepped, iron landscape made of three old chimneys now functioning as planters that were part of a soy sauce factory 60 years ago. The other component of the landscape is the transparent hill, a sculpture-like

landscape that frames the scenery. Composed of an iron plate-stepped landscape, it combines the future with the past. The inside of the stepped landscape is the chimney-recycled fl werpots. The architects aimed to create a harmony between the chimney of the past and the scenery of the present.

Element Restaurant was designed by Reminger Design, which concentrated on uncovering the beauty of the raw space by exposing glazed brick, structural steel and concrete floors. Reclaimed wood walls paired with contemporary artwork and lighting provides a striking juxtaposition between the historic

and industrial feel of the space with modern and sleek design. Because of limited square footage, every guest in the dining room has a seat at the Chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table around the strategic, three-sided open kitchen. Upstairs, the lounge provides a more intimate setting complete with a postcard view of the Gateway Arch. Exposed structural roof beams and comfortable seating areas balance polished concrete floor .

IS IT A CLASSIC OR IS IT A CRAZE For our June/July outdoor issue, we asked local professionals if composite decking is a classic or a craze. Have wood-alternative decks replaced the traditional stained wood? Here’s what they had to say.

CLASSIC “It is my opinion that composite decking is both less expensive and more maintenance free than wood. Therefore, I imagine clients would prefer this option and it would be a classic.” Tom Manche, Tom Manche Interiors. “I defini ely think composite decking is a new ‘classic.’ I chose composite decking when I built my home five years ago. It offers the look of real wood, but it is available in so many more colors and textures. Another advantage is that you can combine choices of planks, rails, and light posts from different companies to achieve a much more custom look. And, of course, the biggest benefit is it is almost maintenance free and doesn't splinter. Ease on bare feet, and baby's knees.” Gail Doveikis, G.M. Doveikis & Associates. "Composite decking is classic. The current generation of capped composites account for 80% of our customer's choices now, and that number continues to increase with the improved performance and appearance coming from the leading brands. It has even become a major consideration for those buying a house with an existing deck, as a professionally constructed composite deck is viewed as an asset to the buyer." Mike Brueggenjohann, California Custom Decks

"Today, we see composite decking regularly in backyards across our area. Similar to many other landscape materials, I think what we will see with composite decking, is  that the material will evolve over time. Much like pavers  have done since they were first introduced to the market. The  quality, price, and designs may  change, but the material is here to stay." Jim Graeler, General Manager / Lead Designer, Chesterfield Valley Nursery. "Lower maintenance and improved product design will make synthetic deck products like capped composites and pvcs into classics. Home-owners continue to look for products that require less maintenance and add value to their homes. Synthetic deck products have evolved in performance and appearance in the past decade. Available in a wide range of colors, capped composites and pvcs offer homeowners the opportunity to customize their outdoor living spaces." Pat Leahy, Outdoor Living Inc.
