hello ®

Happy 250th

COLIN MILLER/STRAUSS PEYTON

Birthday St. Louis! In 1764, Pierre Laclede and his 13-year-old scout Auguste Chouteau selected a site near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and named the new village St. Louis after Louis IX of France. Thus, a fur trading post was born and our stellar city came to life. Fast forward 250 years, and you’ll find a diverse mix of people and neighborhoods celebrating a semiquincentennial milestone. Residents, visitors and newcomers to our fair city have the unique opportunity in 2014 to experience an once-in-a-lifetime St. Louis yearlong birthday party including grand events to small neighborhood gatherings. The 250 Birthday Weekend, February 14-16, pulls out all the plugs with family festivities, an evening ball and the much-anticipated announcement of the birthday cake locations. The 250 four-foot fiberglass cakes are decorated by local artists and are placed at heritage sites within 15 counties throughout the area. Keep your eye out for them around town. A treasure hunt is sure to be in store!

TOWN & COUNTRY

Photograph by ANNE MATHEIS

CITY OF ST. LOUIS, MO Benton Park. Designated

as a sustainable neighborhood in 2004, Benton Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Most homes date back to the late 19th century, many with the original moldings, stained glass and fixtures intact. Century-old trees shade streets, and residents tend to maintain meticulous porches, lawns and gardens. Central West End. The Central West End is

right across from Forest Park, caddy-corner to Washington University and five minutes from downtown. However, most residents find few reasons to leave the neighborhood. The business district’s cobblestone streets are dense with restaurants, stores and galleries. Not far from the Central West End’s business district, you will find gated streets lined with turn-of-the-century mansions and larger historic homes. The area also includes high-rise apartments, condominiums, and luxury apartments.

12

Dogtown. Just south of Forest Park and the

Saint Louis Zoo is a neighborhood affectionately known as “Dogtown.” This lively, tree-lined neighborhood consists of smaller, older homes, apartments and local restaurants and bars; it also boasts a front-row view of the St. Patrick’s Day parade route during the city’s popular Irish celebration. The Hill. Settled in the late 19th century by immigrants from northern Italy and Sicily, this well-established neighborhood embraces its heritage. The Hill boasts meticulously maintained homes, locally renowned Italian-American restaurants, bakeries, delis and specialty grocers. Holly Hills. Established in the 1920s, Holly

Hills is a charming neighborhood located in South St. Louis near the intersection of I-55 and Loughborough Avenue. Both single-family and multi-family homes, from brick mansions to bungalows, anchor the tree-lined streets. The neighborhood boasts excellent schools, churches and the third largest park in the city of St. Louis, Carondelet Park.

Lafayette Square. Named after a Revolutionary War hero, Lafayette Square is all about history, from streets lined with Victorian “painted ladies” to 30-acre Lafayette Park, not only the oldest park in the city, but also the first park west of the Missouri River. Located southwest of downtown, Lafayette Square has a fine collection of bars and restaurants, including SqWires Restaurant and Market, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar and Square One Brewery. In addition to Victorian mansions, you will find luxury apartments, lofts and condominiums.

renewal project, downtown St. Louis is one of the hottest housing tickets in the city! Lofts and apartments range from small rental units to lavish penthouses. Downtown has access to dry cleaning services, hardware and grocery stores, as well as a large selection of fine and casual dining spots. Within walking distance of the lofts and condominiums are famous sports and entertainment venues, as well as historical landmarks. St. Louis Hills. Constructed between 1930 and

1960, most of the homes in St. Louis Hills are brick, but their architectural styles include gingerbread bungalows, larger ranch houses and an eight-sided Art Deco house. Like many St. Louis City neighborhoods, the community is centered around green space — in this case 60-acre Francis Park, which hosts a weekly outdoor concert series during the summer months. Shaw Neighborhood. Bordering the west side of this historic neighborhood is the Missouri Botanical Garden, planned and installed by Henry Shaw. Shaw Neighborhood received its historic designation in 1985 and boasts beautiful,

Today, the neighborhood is filled with bistros, coffee houses, florists and art galleries. Skinker-DeBaliviere. Beautiful, tree-lined streets and historic homes characterize the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood. Its development began during the 1904 World’s Fair. Within walking distance of Forest Park, Washington University and the Delmar “Loop," the area was designated a Local Historic District in 1978. The large single-family homes and expansive apartment buildings, ranging in style from Classic to Tudor Revival to bungalow-style, boast exquisite early 20th-century architectural details in their art glass, millwork and fireplace mantels. Soulard. One of the oldest communities in the city, Soulard is filled with renovated brick rowhouses and breathtaking Victorian-st yle homes, bars, pubs, restaurants and businesses – many of which are centuries old. Named after Antoine Soulard, the first developer in the neighborhood, the two-block area of land known as Soulard Farmer’s Market was donated by Julia Soulard in 1838 with the stipulation that it remain a public market. Today, the market still remains open all year. Tower Grove. This area actually includes two neighborhoods – Tower Grove South and Tower Grove East. They both surround Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Homes in this area range from impressive mansions to quirky, turn-of-the-century flats with pocket doors and fireplaces. Both neighborhoods are demographically mixed, housing residents in historic homes to graduate students. Also of note is South Grand Boulevard, an up-and-coming stretch of ethnic restaurants, hip bars and shops. RELOCATING IN SAINT LOUIS 2014

Senior Living

Picking the right place for your loved one BY Caroline Michler

If you find yourself moving and bringing an aging parent, it can be hard to know where to begin. Transitioning into an senior living facility can be a tough time for you and your loved one. Communication about what your loved one needs and what they are feeling is important.

Where to start: a conversation about what your loved one needs in a facility. Are they still fairly independent but need help getting t o a p p o i n t ments? Or do they need frequent medical care and medication management? Determining how much care your loved one needs can help you narrow down facilities and determine if they need to be in assisted living facility or a nursing home.  Be clear about how much everyone is willing to pay.  Get a feel for the facilities in the area before you move at: Medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare. Here, you can compare facilities and find out information about health inspections, staffing ratios and much more.  Listen to the concerns of your loved one. Understand it will be hard to leave home, and acknowledge any feelings of loss they might have.  Have

What to look for: services do they offer? Ask about transportation, meals, housekeeping, security and medical care. Find out what is included in the price and what costs extra.  What emergency plans are in place?  What is the space like? Would your loved one be sharing a room, bathroom or kitchen with other residents? Is there a common room where residents can socialize?  If you can go in person, take note of the atmosphere. Is the staff friendly? How do the residents seem? Do they interact? Ask about group activities and outings. It’s important to see if your loved one would feel at home here.  Visit together if you can.  What

After the move: as often as you can, and keep in contact when you can’t.  Help them decorate their room to make them feel at home. Encourage them to participate in group activities or outings.  Continue to listen to what they are feeling.  Communicate any concerns to the staff.  Visit

Complimentary Colors By Samantha Hubbard

Just as clothing becomes outdated with time, so does paint color. Interior designer Ellen Kurtz, Ellen Kurtz Interiors, shares current paint trends and tips for choosing the best color for your new home. Beige has become an interior paint color of the past as gray takes the spot of the new neutral. From soft gray to charcoal, this modern look is paired well with deep blues and greens. People are shying away from earthy tones as soft pastel color tints, such as light pink and light green, are also gaining popularity. Falling into step with the pastel trend, Pantone has named Radiant Orchid the color of the year for 2014. The vibrant pastel purple is softened by light pink and fuchsia undertones creating a contemporary look. If switching to soft pastel walls doesn’t suit your style, another way to break away from the traditional is to paint the ceiling or have an accent wall. Paint the ceiling the same color as

30

the wall to accentuate crown molding. Smoky blues are good ceiling colors besides the normal shades of beige. The accent wall, or feature wall, is usually across from the room entrance and used to draw the eye to a focus point piece such as a fireplace, bed, piece of art or mirror. A rule of thumb for picking ceiling or accent wall colors is to use a different shade from the same color palette as the wall. The accent wall should be a shade darker than the rest of the walls. The proper paint color is also very dependent on the room itself. Paint the walls of a small room a deep color, like charcoal gray, and pair it with light furniture to create an open effect. If you have rooms that blend into each other, such as a connected kitchen and living room, paint the ceiling or the trim a different color. Painting woodwork and trim colors like charcoal, gray and umber instead of the usual white will make the room cozier and give it a rustic look.

Softening

Your Space with Rugs

BY Caroline Michler

Paige McClellan from Niche, a home furnishing store in downtown St. Louis, advises looking beyond just the color and pattern when choosing a rug. It’s important to think about size and material, she says. Check out her tips for selecting the ideal rug for your new home. Size When choosing a rug always consider its destination. • A rug in an entry way should cover as much floor as possible. • A 36-inch perimeter around the dining room table should allow chairs to move around without catching on corners. • A standard measurement for bedroom rugs is 18 inches on either side of the bed. Depending on the room, the perimeter at the foot of the bed could be larger. • If a living room rug does not fill the entire space of the floor, don't feel pressured to make every piece of furniture fit entirely on top of the rugs surface. Instead, just make sure some piece of the furniture, like the front legs, touches the rug. Material Picking the right material for the space is important. • Because shag is soft and absorbent, it’s best for bedrooms or living areas. Shag is not an ideal choice for entryways, dining areas or spots where children and pets frequent. • Jute and sisal rugs are inexpensive and durable, making them a good choice for entryways and under other rugs. • A cut-pile rug is good for all spaces. • A flat-weave wool rug is best for high-traffic, such as dining rooms, because it’s durable, inexpensive and reversible. • Flat-weave wool rugs become softer with time. No matter the quality level, wool area rugs will experience some shedding. . y Saga Rugs b able at il a v a Rug

32

Padding Constant walking and movement on the rugs not only wears down the top but also the bottom from the friction between the floor and the rug. Pads can double the life of a rug. • Reversible felt is the best padding in between carpet or hardwood. It is best under flat weaves. • PVC grip is best for indoor use or hard surfaces. • The edge of the pad should come within 2 inches of the rug perimeter.

Rug available at Savvy Surrounding Style.

Treatment Deep cleaning a rug can extend its lifespan. McClellan recommends getting rugs in medium traffic areas, like living rooms, deep cleaned once every three years. If you have pets or children, every two years would be better. For treating spills in between treatments, try Resolve. is. at Amin ailable v a g u R
