Q: Can astigmatism be corrected, and do eye exercises help? A: Astigmatism causes blurred or distorted vision at all distances. Like nearsightedness or farsightedness, it can be corrected with glasses, contacts or refractive surgery. Soft contact lenses are the most popular option for correction, and patients can find various contact lens options, depending on their visual needs. Unfortunately, eye exercise programs that claim to reduce the need for glasses and contacts don’t have any scientific evidence to show they work. It boils down to the eye’s anatomy—problems with how the eye is shaped contribute to nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Eye exercises cannot change the shape of an eye, nor reverse the effects of aging on the eye. —Dr. Jennifer Wademan, OD Bidwell Optometry 2545 East Bidwell, Suite 160, Folsom 916-983-0896, bidwellvisionsource.com
How can I clean my carpet and lessen the time it takes them to dry?
Ask the Experts photo © Victor Koldunov/fotolia.com.
Carpets need steam cleaning or “HWE” (hot water extraction). To reduce excessive moisture, vacuum extremely slowly to remove dry soil; average-sized living rooms should take 1520 minutes to vacuum. Thorough vacuuming means less water will be used during the cleaning process. We recommend using your own vacuum and not the carpet cleaner’s. Choose a carpet cleaning company with “up-to-date,” powerful “truck-mounted” machines—one that uses rotary extractors (for deeper cleanings) and large air movers (to pick up and blow moisture off the carpet). Meanwhile, crack windows at each end of the house to get moisture out of the home. —Dean Carter, Owner Carter’s Carpet Restoration 4911 Windplay Drive, Suite 1A, El Dorado Hills 916-933-7807, carterscarpet.com February 2016 - stylefedh.com 9

two decades, eventually attaining the rank of captain. Since his honorable discharge in 1974, Whiten has remained a strong advocate for veterans’ causes. He’s the founder of the Serrano Salute to Valor, an annual golf tournament that raises funds to provide veterans with educational scholarships and other assistance. For this and other efforts, Whiten was recently named El Dorado County’s Veteran of the Year. “There’s a lot of need, more than most people understand,” he explains, pointing out that many veterans—despite help from the GI Bill—do not have enough money for books or other living expenses while attending college. “We fill in some holes in their coverage and hopefully make their lives a little better.” — Amber Foster

oe Whiten still remembers growing up in the countryside 40 miles outside of Pittsburgh. He had to work odd jobs—many involving backbreaking labor— in order to save up enough money to attend college. A knee injury put an end to his hope of a football scholarship, but he went to college anyway, with the help of a dedicated high school chemistry teacher who loaned him enough money to enroll. Inspired by that teacher, Whiten completed a chemistry degree, later moving on to a successful career—first as a chemistry teacher himself, and later as a chemical sales representative. While still in college, Whiten joined the ROTC, and was later commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve. He went on to serve in the Reserve for nearly

Preschool Programs for All
FUN FACTORY PRESCHOOL: AGES 3-4 This popular program has served Folsom families for more than 20 years, with classrooms at the Folsom Community Center and at the Folsom Sports Complex. Children may enter the program at age three and continue the following year, or attend a single year. Classes for fouryear-olds are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and for three-year-olds on Tuesdays and Thursdays; the program follows the FCUSD instructional calendar (but doesn’t observe the staff development days). Fun Factory teacher Ms. Kay describes the program as “a good balance of developmentally appropriate curriculum in a play-based setting.” Typical daily activities include small-group stations, arts and crafts, carpet time for songs and stories, outdoor exercise, and a snack break; theme days, holiday celebrations and occasional off-site field trips take place throughout the year.
Presidential Trivia In honor of Presidents’ Day on February 15, and the many legendary leaders of this great country, take a moment to test your knowledge with these historic questions.
1. Who was the only president to serve more than two terms? 2. Who was the oldest elected president? 3. Who was the first president to live in the White House?
4. Who issued the Emancipation Proclamation?
KINDERGARTEN READINESS: AGES 4-5 The Hinkle Creek Nature Center provides a unique setting for this program with a curriculum focused on preparing students for grade school with social and academic skills. Kindergarten Readiness teacher Ms. Aileen says her joy as a teacher “is to know I’ve done my best to prepare students to be kind, make good decisions, and be a good friend and role model.” Classes take place Mondays through Thursdays each week starting in September and continuing through May. Kindergarten Readiness focuses on pre-reading skills including alphabet sequence and phonics, plus verbalization of facts and concepts.
PRESCHOOL SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES Folsom Parks and Recreation offers a variety of programs that are designed to introduce little ones ages two and older to fundamental activity skills while also encouraging parent participation. Classes include Spanish immersion, ballet, dance and creative movement, soccer, taekwondo, tennis and basketball. The Folsom Zoo Sanctuary offers a story time gathering, featuring special zoo puppets and an introduction to a live zoo animal, at 10:30 a.m. on the fourth Thursday of every month. The Folsom Sports Complex offers Little Friends Open Gym, a drop-in preschool playtime, from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays. — Lesley Miller To learn more about the Fun Factory and Kindergarten Readiness programs, visit the classrooms between 4-6 p.m. at the March 2 Open House.

Ben’s Huli Huli Chicken & Hawaiian Café
t Ben’s Huli Huli Chicken & Hawaiian Café, the taste of the ocean and sun-kissed beaches of Hawaii linger with every bite of succulently sweet “Huli Huli” chicken. The café wall tells all that, in Hawaiian, “huli” means to turn (referring to how the chicken is cooked on the grill). My Huli Huli Chicken Plate came with two large pieces of perfectly grilled meat, jasmine rice garnished with toasted coconut shavings, a slice of pineapple—a sweet interlude to the meal—and a helping of macaroni (patrons can also opt for a green salad). You quickly sense that the chicken marinade is made with care, so it came as no surprise when I was told ingredients like ginger and pineapple are left to seep into the meat overnight, delicately flavoring every bite. On the wall, another Hawaiian word caught my eye: “ono,” meaning delicious or tasty, which aptly described the plate before me. At Ben’s, lemon water is passé; instead, they serve pineapple water that’s subtly sweet and strikingly refreshing. You’re also serenaded by island music and treated to an overall atmosphere that can only be described as tranquil—it’s like taking a summer vacation for lunch, and I’m certainly traveling back for seconds.

“If you’re looking to please your taste buds, the Fresh Salmon and Pappardelle Pasta from Bacchus House Wine Bar & Bistro will do the trick. A hearty amount of salmon (no skimping here) is sautéed with scratch-made noodles, leeks, shallots, capers, tomatoes, spinach, dill and Meyer lemon cream sauce, resulting in a meal that’s the perfect mix of light and indulgent.” bacchushousebistro.com

FACTS & FIGURES — Compiled by Sharon Penny
Age of Folsom’s Ashland Station. Established in 1860, it’s the oldest freight station west of the Mississippi. It originally stood at the corner of Folsom-Auburn Road and Greenback Lane, and in 1972 was transported across the Rainbow Bridge to its current location next to the Folsom Chamber of Commerce.
Age of the Granite Center School on Mormon Street, which was completed in 1912; in December, the Folsom Historic Home Tour celebrated the school’s century birthday. Architect George C. Sellon—California’s first state architect—designed it, in addition to San Quentin Prison and Sacramento’s first skyscraper, the Cal-West building on J Street (now home to the Citizen Hotel). and more.
Age of the Orangevale Avenue Bridge, which was designed by Sacramento County Surveyor Drury D. Butler, the man who also built the 12th Street Bridge and the Rainbow Bridge. There are 38 bridges still in use today that were erected by Sacramento County during Butler’s time in office…and that, folks, is how you build a bridge.
“The best pasta dish in Folsom is the traditional Spaghetti from Visconti’s Ristorante! Delicious handmade noodles serve as a vehicle for mouthfuls of the most amazing marinara ever—it’s flavorful, fresh and simply perfect.” viscontisristorante.com
“The Baked Meat Lasagna from Dominick’s NY Pizza & Deli is the closest thing you’ll find to homemade Italian lasagna—words fail. Bellissima!” dominicksmarketdeli.com/ folsom

Offering you an opportunity to proactively work off the chips and dip you’re bound to eat, the Sacramento Running Association (SRA) hosts the California Family Fitness Super Sunday Races on the morning of February 7. Runners of all ages and abilities can sign up for the 5K or 10K, and kids can take part in a 1K or a peewee 40yard dash. The races all start and end on Sacramento State’s football field. “What really sets us apart is that we’ve integrated the theme into just about everything,” says Ellen Moore, executive director with the SRA. “To finish on 18 stylefedh.com - February 2016
the football field is really exciting. We’ve got a big inflatable football helmet [that people can run] through. The Sac State cheerleaders are cheering them on, [and we have] a postrace tailgate party where people can drink beer and eat hot dogs.” The SRA is a nonprofit that not only serves elite athletes and seasoned marathoners, but also works to find new ways to encourage the community to run. So put on your eye black, headbands, jerseys or “Super Sunday” race shirts in the NFL team color of your choice, and run first before snacking later! For tickets, visit runsupersunday.org. •

Your skin doesn’t forget. Let us help you protect it. Sun damage is cumulative over one’s lifetime, and too much sun can cause skin cancer – the number one most common cancer in the world. The incidence of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, more than doubled in women from 1973 to 2004, and nearly doubled for men. The Skin Cancer Foundation suggests the following: - Do not burn and seek the shade, especially 10am-4pm - Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths - Cover up with clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses - Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher - Apply 1 ounce (2 tbsp) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside; reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating - Keep newborns out of the sun; sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months - Examine your skin head-to-toe every month and see your doctor every year for a professional skin exam

Learn, Listen and Reflect by LeeAnn Dickson
ot every city in the U.S. is recognized around the world, but as the saying goes: Folsom is on the map. Nearly 50 years ago, an electrifying combination of a country singing star and a maximum-security prison brought the city into the limelight of international stardom. When Johnny Cash performed to inmates in the Folsom State Prison cafeteria on January 13, 1968, the artist, his career, the city of Folsom and the prison would never be the same again: The Man in Black had made an impact on the music world that still resonates today. Robert Goss, dindering re e rector of Folsom’s ag Guitar im Parks and Recreation Department had an idea. He wanted to connect the American River Bike Trail and the Folsom Lake Trail with a 2.5-mile swath through Folsom. Goss, a lifelong Cash fan, took the concept of the Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience to the city council, and it was unanimously approved. “I’m lucky to have a great staff and city leadTrail map
ership with the vision to help make this happen,” Goss says. “I work with some very creative people.” Their plan is to honor and celebrate Cash for his place in Folsom history—all while advancing public art and recreational trails. “This is significant for the city,” Goss says. “The art experience tells a story about the impact Cash has had, and continues to have, on our community and prison...and how the Folsom Prison concert impacted his life and career.” In late 2014, the first phase of the project—which includes a 1.2-mile trail and a pedestrian/bike bridge that spans Folsom Lake Crossing and East Natoma Street—opened to the public. Phase two of the endeavor, slated to break ground this summer, will finish up the trail with a 1.25-mile segment on prison property. After the completion, there will be a huge fund-raising effort to bring the “art experience” to the trail. The estimated $8

hold between 100-200 people. It’s designed for impromptu concerts or just a place for Cash fans and trail users to rest, relax and reflect. The grounds will include a series of interpretive spaces and features designed to tell the story of the famous concerts held at the prison. The Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience will be a first-class destination for the millions of Cash fans around the nation and the globe—a place to learn, listen and reflect on one of the greatest musical artists and entertainers in history.
More discussion on the public artwork that’s slated to be installed will continue next month in this two-part series. folsomcasharttrail.com

million will be raised through community events, corporate sponsorships and social media contacts. All of the art pieces are inspired by Cash and the Folsom Prison concerts, and at each end of the trail there will be a seven-foot tall guitar pick; as with the first note of a song, the pick will mark the beginning of the trail. Between, many more opportunities to be immersed in Cash’s life and music will abound. “The trail is designed to be interactive,” Goss explains. “The more you read and reflect, the deeper the storyline goes, and with it your experience.” Along with the art, the three-acre Johnny Cash Legacy Park is planned. This intimate outdoor amphitheater—with grounds reminiscent of a guitar and a 50foot tall Man in Black sculpture—will

beautiful inside and out Preparing for Plastic Surgery by Abigail Blank
he decision to have cosmetic surgery is one that comes with numerous factors. While it can be a wonderful and positive change for many, there is much to consider when deciding if going under the knife is right for you. Therese Sorrentino, LMFT, in Folsom, specializes in helping people cope with the emotional effects of cosmetic surgery— both before and after. To help patients prepare, Sorrentino explains what’s most essential to a successful outcome. “By 30 stylefedh.com - February 2016
knowing oneself, a patient will be more able to partake in a successful doctorpatient relationship—one in which she or he is able to articulate their own personal motivating factors for cosmetic surgery,” she says. She’s also quick to point out that while cosmetic surgery can enhance your self-esteem, it cannot change your life. This same sentiment is echoed by Dr. Reginald Rice, who is double board certified in ENT, facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery and practices at Marshall
Plastic Surgery Center in Placerville. Making sure you have a clear understanding of the benefits and limitations of your elected surgery is one of the most important parts of ensuring a positive outcome. “This can be critically important,” Dr. Rice says. “I can perform a ‘perfect’ surgery with an excellent surgical outcome that is a complete failure from my patient’s standpoint, if the results or outcome is not what they expected.” Another essential aspect for potential cosmetic surgery patients to consider is the reality of recovery and the amount of time needed for healing. As Sorrentino explains, “After the surgery, a patient may become temporarily depressed. This can result for multiple reasons and is normal; it takes time to heal, and how you look right after surgery may not be what you expected…it can be a shock.” But both Dr. Kenneth Sumida, board certified plastic surgeon and medical director at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, and Dr. Rice agree that it’s imperative you and your surgeon be on the same page when it comes to the expected outcome. This is the best way to ensure you will be satisfied with your procedure. “Complications can happen after any surgery, but many can be avoided with good surgical planning and technique, and pre- and post-operative care,” Dr. Sumida explains. Sorrentino recommends anyone considering cosmetic surgery to seek a few sessions of counseling both before and after. Since many patients experience anxiety before surgery, a counselor can help manage any concerns and work through any self-esteem issues that may be accompanying their desire for the procedure. Therapists can also help patients postsurgery, as they often deal with intense emotional reactions to the changes in their appearance. While Dr. Rice says that only a small portion of the population seeking cosmetic surgery suffers from body dysmorphic disorder (a mental disorder that causes someone to obsess over a perceived flaw), it’s important to remember that the effects of cosmetic surgery in your life are only so far-reaching. Dr. Rice summarizes: “[With] all of the issues a patient faces in considering plastic surgery, if I had to choose the most important one, it would be that the patient understands plastic surgery will not change their life.”

cappuccino cruisers Revving to Help the Community
ike many successful ventures, this one started at the local coffee shop. Seeking new ways to draw customers, a coffee shop owner placed an ad in the hometown newspaper. The ad was answered by a couple who had the idea of gathering with friends every week to display their classic cars, enjoy the camaraderie and, hopefully, bring business to the coffee shop. Several Sunday afternoons and specialty coffees later, the car club earned its name: Cappuccino Cruisers. Since its inception in 1995, Ray and Chris Marchese, along with sister Patty Wyckoff, have welcomed dozens more classic car buffs to the club. They’ve also dedicated the club’s efforts to community service— collecting nearly $200,000 worth of donations over the past 21 years. The funds are donated to local organizations such as Twin Lakes Food Bank and the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary. “We agreed from the start to host events that would benefit local charities,” says Ray. “Soon we discovered the local food bank, which serves many families, so we hosted 32 stylefedh.com - February 2016
two truckloads of toys and more than $300 in cash— benefited the Folsom Police Department’s “Helping Families in Need” program. The group’s weekly events have become a summertime tradition in Folsom. Each Wednesday evening from April through October, the Cruisers gather to show a collection of pre-1974 cars, trucks, street rods and customs. Free to the public, the casual cruise-in nights bring a nostalgic atmosphere to town, much like in the movie American Graffiti. “We look at our cruise-in nights as community and L to R: Jack Binning, Ray Marchese, family-oriented events, Chris Marchese, Lisa Smith and Tom Codina where you might go out to grab a bite to eat and then take a walk a toy run. When we called the food bank down memory lane,” Ray explains. “We play to tell them we had canned food, toys and rock ‘n roll music from the ’40s through the money for them, they couldn’t believe it. ’70s and some from the early ‘80s as well, They referred to us as their angels.” and give out awards and raffle prizes. Our cruise-in events have grown to be Northern California’s longest-running and largest of the kind.” One of the group’s beloved benefactors, the Folsom Zoo, is the site of their annual May Family Day event, scheduled this year for May 29. Sponsors provide funds to enable the Cruisers to purchase and give away 600 passes for families to enjoy a fun day among the animals. Two additional events that families won’t want to miss this year include Tribute America on June 29, which pays tribute to all of those who protect and serve our country, in addition to a large fund-raiser in late July to benefit local
This past December, the Cruisers held their 21st annual “Christmas is for Kids” Toy Drive where approximately 150 classic cars were on display and the event proceeds—
causes like the Zoo, Folsom Police Department’s K-9 and Mounted Patrol units, Twin Lakes Food Bank and the Folsom Public Library.

money their total.” Worse yet? “They will have to start all over again in saving for retirement, and they will have lost time that will cost them more in additional contributions if they want to catch up.”
Mistake 3 / Thinking Retirement Saving is a ShortTerm Plan “You have to commit to a long-term savings plan and not worry about the shortterm fluctuations,” says Barrientos. While your retirement savings may go up and down, every dollar counts. Start early and make regular investments, even if contributions are as low as three percent of your income.
7 Golden Retirement Mistakes by Kristen Castillo
o retire with an annual expense of $40,000 a year, you need to save a million dollars, so how can you make sure you’re on the right track? “The key is starting as early as possible and trying to maximize your contributions,” says Louis J. Barrientos, co-founder and CEO of FC360, Inc. in Roseville, who recommends saving five to seven percent of your salary, as well as one percent more every time you get a raise. “The older an individual gets the more conscious they are about the balance in their retirement account and whether it’s enough to sustain into the golden years,” says Paul Lee, CPA principal of PSG Certified Public Accountants in Roseville, who encourages clients to be consistent in saving. If you need to contribute more, the IRS allows catch-up contributions of $6,000 once you turn 50. To make sure your retirement 38 stylefedh.com - February 2016
“That’s free retirement money in the bank, assuming you stay with your employer long enough to be fully vested,” says Lee. “You want to make contributions at least up to your company match.”
Mistake 5 / Not Being Aware of Alternative Retirement Plans Even without employer retirement plans, you still have savings options. “You can contribute into traditional or Roth IRAs and you have the ability to do so by April 15, 2016, to make it eligible to be applied for the 2015 tax year,” says Lee.
years are the best they can be, avoid these seven golden mistakes.
Mistake 6 / Withdrawing Contributions When Changing Jobs
Mistake 1 / Waiting Too Long to Get Started
Withdrawing money now “will result in the full amount being taxed along with additional penalties from IRS and your resident state,” says Lee, who recommends leaving your money in the same plan, if allowed, or rolling it over into another IRA for more investing options and flexibility.
It’s never too soon to start saving. “Because retirement for many is over 3040 years away, we see a lot of individuals thinking they’re too young to start so they delay signing up for an employer plan,” says Barrientos, which could mean missing out on matching contributions and having to catch up later.
Mistake 2 / Cashing Out Early Don’t treat your retirement like a piggy bank, notes Barrientos. He says using your retirement money for non-retirement expenses before age 59-and-a-half means you’ll be “subject to taxes and penalties, which average around 30-50 percent of
Mistake 7 / Gambling with Your Retirement Your retirement account should be in a diversified portfolio, says Barrientos. “Many individuals who manage their own investments think they can use their retirement funds and ‘play the market,’” he says, noting bad investment decisions could impact the success of your retirement plan.

INSPIRATIONS BACK TO BASICS
White and grey is such a stronghold in design because of its inclusion of classic white, which is timeless, and the many available tones of grey. The combination is calming, simple, clean and beautiful; plus, it works with interiors that are modern, traditional and transitional.
The impact walls with dimension, texture and depth can make on a room is tremendous and, done correctly, can be more impactful than a great piece of art and often even replace the need for it. • Stikwood (reclaimed wood for your walls) gives an authentic texture and feel to a space, makes a great impact, and is easy to install. • The dimensional quality of 3D Wall Panels by Inhabit Living makes a real architectural statement, and being paintable makes is customizable for the space. • The Peel and Stick Wall Mural by Eazy Wallz is a wonderful treatment that makes a very dramatic impact with hundreds of visual options.

TREES PLEASE You can’t open a design magazine, website, blog or walk into a design-savvy restaurant or store without seeing a fiddle-leaf fig tree. Thankfully, these beauties don’t only spruce up a space, but are relatively low-maintenance too.
MIX IT UP From hardware and lighting to furniture and décor, gold and copper metals will be huge this year!
SING THE BLUES
Whites and pinks will be big this year but blue, navy, indigo and denim shades are everything!
Geo is everywhere you turn, and these Agate Coasters (set of 4) from West Elm are simply amazing!
MICHELLE BOYLE, OWNER OF CALIFORNIA CHIC STAGING + DESIGN, ROSEVILLE, 916-872-4600, CALIFORNIACHICDESIGN.COM
Texture is everything, and these Mongolian Lamb Pillows from West Elm are heaven!
We know gold is making a comeback, but copper is a nice transition for those not quite ready to jump back into the ’80s and ’90s. Adding a few accessories—copper bowls, candleholders or a table, such as this Cuff Cocktail Table by Global Views—can be a nice addition to break up all wood tones in a space.
THE RIGHT LIGHT
Replacing a tired light fixture with a contemporary, futurist-inspired piece, such as this Rondure Pendant Light by Uttermost works like a charm—even in transitional and traditional spaces. Lighting really sets the tone of a room and can be an important focal element.
Leather fringe of the ’70s is making a comeback in the home, from pillows to light fixtures—such as this Boho Chandelier from Currey and Company—though adding a simple pillow with bright colors and patchwork designs adds an interesting pop to any space!

Leathered granite countertops— an alternative to polished granite or quartz—are honed, rough and created by using wire brushes on the stone; what’s more, they hide fingerprints and smudges well!

Brass fixtures add sophistication and style to any room. We especially love them in this bathroom against the white walls and fun tile accent. This chic bath would be an amazing addition to any home.
Who says you can’t put a bright Turkish textile on Moroccaninspired tile? This bathroom is the perfect blend of Bohemian living, with its warm, natural elements and great mix of pattern.
WHITE IS RIGHT
Clean, crisp, sleek and bright are just a few words that come to mind when staring at this drool-worthy kitchen. We love ourselves a white wall, and this fresh and modern space is proof that white is oh-so right.

Geometric prints are on trend for 2016 and can be found in all categories of home décor—in both neutrals and bright colors. This is a trend you can easily incorporate into your existing space; simply buy a decorative geometric object for your tabletop, a geometric lamp or printed lampshade for your existing lamp, or add some geometric wallpaper and geometric-shaped furniture like a coffee table or side tables. I especially love these products: Avizza Table Lamp by Pacific Coast Lighting Ebony by Andrew Four-Piece Framed Graphic Art Set by Paragon Trigg Wall Vessel Large by Umbra. NOTE: Use anywhere around your home as a planter, or for storage of supplies and knickknacks. Dashiell Two Piece Sculpture Set by Vertuu Design Inc. Harmon Small Accessory and Harmon Large Accessory by Arteriors. NOTE: These look great in a bookcase, sitting on top of a stack of books or caging an orchid.
SING THE BLUES
Blue is trending in a big way! And not just one shade of blue, either—everything from navy to one of Pantone’s color of the year: serenity. Blue can act as a neutral or as a bold statement hue. Navy has become a standard option for many upholstery manufacturers; the classic color schemes of blue and white or blue and yellow are back in a big way, too. Another option is to use many shades of blue to create an ocean of color. Scandinavian style uses dusty rose, frosty gray, soft blue/gray with untreated woods and mid-century furniture.
GLAM IT UP Luxury and glamour go hand in hand. Expect to see wallpaper with metallic backgrounds or a pearlescent finish, lighting with lots of crystals, wood furniture with mirrored or gilded finishes, and sofas and other upholstery with deep acrylic button tufting, nailhead trims and velvet fabrics—all done with a feminine flair and some floral thrown in. Women all over the U.S. are embracing their femininity and making their homes reflect it! 44 stylefedh.com - February 2016

BACK TO BASICS
Clean, classic lines are always trendy.
LIGHT AND BRIGHT One of the most popular color trends is to keep it light and airy with a pop of color like a teal accent wall, chair or pillows. Large, oversized textured metallic pictures where less is more add a “wow” factor, along with engineered hardwood large planked flooring in neutral and light colors.
COLOR YOUR WORLD One of the most important things to consider in working with a designer is that the latest color palettes are only available to designers and not usually found in your local paint store. There are several associations that designers participate in or have connections to. Keeping the clients’ design goals in mind, it’s our job as professionals to make their dreams come true!
SHELLEY RODGERS, DESIGNER AND OWNER OF FABULOUS FINISHES, FOLSOM, 916-803-3289, FABULOUSFINISHESHOMES.COM
SHINE ON Carpets, flooring, wallpaper and décor in a shiner accent of neutrals, known in the design world as “damask,” are also trending.
February 2016 - stylefedh.com 45
INSPIRATIONS POLISHED SIMPLICITY We can achieve this look by making the classic and timeless more crisp and polished—mixing traditional with modern; mixing luxurious accessories and accents with organic material; introducing metal, glass and stone elements to timeless classics; adding saturated accent colors with refined texture and crisp solid textiles. Statement art pieces are also a must.
VINTAGE ECLECTIC This look can be achieved by adding vintage or vintage-inspired elements juxtaposed with modern elements, rich but tonal colorways, weathered or worn finishes contrasted with touches of shine and gloss, or luxurious linen and velvet textiles. All of this can only be achieved with a good foundation, such as choosing the right Oriental rug to build around.

Antiqued brass nailheads add traditional detail, while soft gray canvas, a unique wing shape and splayed nettle wood legs give this Kensington Carter Dining Bench by Four Hands a contemporary presence; also available in side chairs.
SACRED SPACE The formal dining room is becoming desirable again. I’m finding that with hectic schedules and busy families living in a techdriven society, we’re craving “unplugged” space and family down time. What better way to come together at mealtimes than with an updated, formal dining room?

LESS IS MORE Soothing color palettes with an emphasis on simplicity—especially neutral off-whites combined with soft sage or olive greens—are a top choice. The necessary interest can be achieved with contrasting materials and colors.
The brand Visual Comfort offers something for every taste and has exceptional quality and timeless style.
CHRISTIN BALZER, OWNER AT HAVEN STUDIOS, EL DORADO HILLS, 916-256-2580, HAVENSTUDIOS.COM
WORK ZONES Instead of the work triangle, it becomes more and more common to utilize work zones in today’s kitchens. If you like to entertain, you know how important it is to give your guests a place to hang out and perch while you’re preparing food. It’s even better when there’s extra workspace for them to help.

INSPIRATIONS SQUEAKY CLEAN
Universal design, which allows for accessibility by all, should be considered in all design discussions. Barrier-free showers without a shower dam to step over will allow people to stay in their homes longer. Safety considerations, such as grab bars—which can be decorative and not commercial looking—allow for protection, functionality and help with access in and out of tub areas or showers. A tile floor border around the shower and smaller tiles within the shower visually enhances where the bathroom floor ends and the shower area begins—a visual cue that’s helpful to everyone, not just those who are visually impaired.
Wood-look tiles are functional and attractive, providing the look of real wood in a durable, more-easily maintained surface (i.e. no scratches from pets, easily mopped). In addition, many of these tiles have textured surfaces, thus providing for no-slip surfaces in “wet” locations. Install these tiles in all areas of the home and adjacent to other existing tile surfaces (entryways, kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms). The new and existing tile floors can flush out with each other, so no floor transitions or raised moldings are required between rooms, thereby allowing for ease of movement without trip hazards.

Even lowbarrier shower entries facilitate getting in and out of them. Utilizing a coved, Corian shower pan with a small lip at the shower entry is easily maintained (i.e. no grout) and less costly, since there is no need to re-frame the floor or jackhammer out concrete to lower the floor.
Kent Eberle photo by Dante Fontana. Squeaky Clean photo by Dave Adams. Other photos courtesy of their respective companies.
Capturing space from adjacent areas can allow for increased functionality; for example, taking closet space from an adjacent room can allow for a roomy steam shower. Tiles are getting larger and longer, which means less grout and less maintenance, as well as a great look! Bench seats—whether corner seats, fold-down seats, or blocking installed between wall studs (for future installation)—should be considered in showers for increased functionality. Handheld showerheads on “slidebars” allow for adjustment and flexibility of use by all bathers and can double as safety grab bars.

DECK THE WALLS
Not only does wallpaper add a statement, but it brings in visual energy as well as another layer of texture and depth to any room, too. If you’re nervous to commit, I suggest using it on one wall, possibly the one the sofa backs up to, or a piece of furniture that needs a little extra attention to make the “pop” you want to see in the room. Other great places include areas in your home where you aren’t always in, such as powder rooms or dining rooms.
MIX AND MINGLE It’s bling like you’ve never seen! Gone are the days of “matchy matchy” and in comes a new wave of mixing metals. Your jewelry isn’t the only one that gets to have fun anymore in this department; now you will find spaces decorated with multiple metals, offering a new look to the standard monochromatic style.
SAMANTHA CROW, PRINCIPAL DESIGNER AND OWNER OF JUXTAPOSED INTERIORS, ROCKLIN, 916-719-3681, JUXTAPOSEDINTERIORS.COM
GREY DAYS Grey is the new black. Taupe also has a very strong hold in the market. Both grey and taupe are being used as neutrals to ground a room, regardless of the style.
EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN Traditional and modern architecture and interiors are back! As people have moved away from the Tuscan trend, they are moving to one of these designs or a blend of both, which is called transitional. One of my favorite things to do is take something old and make it look new with the use of updated textiles or color.
METAL MIXTURES To keep things interesting, people are mixing their metals. For example, they might have polished nickel or brass lighting like this Zanadoo Large Chandelier by Arteriors, or antique brass drawer pulls.

INSPIRATIONS ROSY OUTLOOK
I predict a lot of beautiful, soft and radiating pink/rose quartz (Pantone’s color of the year!) mixed with warm metals like copper and rose gold. I especially love this Dornbracht Cyprum Kitchen Faucet in rose gold.
FIGHT FOR YOUR WHITE I feel there will be a turn away from cool grey tones on walls; my clients are loving ivory, bone, creamy whites…and comfort!
FROM THE GROUND UP Pattern floors—whether it’s a herringbone wood floor, painted hardwood or cement tiles—are all the rage.

Piggyback Ribs Smoky-Sweet BBQ Perfection by Jeremy B. Neely // photos by Dante Fontana
here are many schools of thought when it comes to barbecue, and some folks tend to get a bit dogmatic about it (I’m looking at you, Texas). I try to keep it simple and not worry what the BBQ zealots say. For me, I focus on two key characteristics: texture and taste. If the meat is tender (but not mushy) and the flavor is smoky and pleasing, I’m a happy camper;
…the ribs were everything I hoped for: tender, flavorful, smoky, messy and awesome.
by itself—tender chicken breast with a BBQ-style dressing on top of a good garden salad—while the ribs were everything I hoped for: tender, flavorful, smoky, messy and awesome. The crust was just right, and the juicy pink meat came off the bone with the perfect amount of gentle tugging. The house BBQ sauces were excellent too—the spicy version offering a nice vinegary zing; with or without a little extra sauce, the ribs were terrific. As far as sides, the baked beans were smoky and sweet with just a little kick, the shells and cheese were on point, the slaw was sweet and creamy, and you can’t go wrong with a deliciously moist cornbread
Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs
BBQ Chicken Salad
and I’m excited to report that Piggyback Ribs passes my “rigorous” test with flying colors. The eatery sports a clean, comfortable dining room with flat-screen TVs and plenty of space. It’s a local, family-owned operation run by Folsom residents Dave and Trish O’Brien. Their approach to barbecue involves a combination of roasting and charbroiling. When I asked if they adhere to a certain school of BBQ, the duo smiled and said that it’s “Dave’s style.” While they focus primarily on ribs—offering up baby back and spare ribs on the pork side, and single or double ribs on the beef side—you can also appease your appetite with a salad, “Piggy Dog” for the 52 stylefedh.com - February 2016
kids, finger-lickin’ good sides, draught and bottled beers, wines by the glass, and desserts like cheesecake and chocolate cake. When I dropped in to pick up a few bites, I grabbed the Piggyback Sampler (baby back ribs, spare ribs and beef ribs with two regular sides), a half rack of baby back ribs (includes two regular sides), and a BBQ chicken salad. The salad was a meal
muffin slathered in butter and honey. So when you get a hankering for some succulent smoky-sweet perfection, drop into Piggyback and get a half rack…or three. You’ll be happy you did.

taste SHRIMP CAPONATA Affairs to Remember by Sandy Axelrod (Motivational Press, 2015, $34.95) This combination of sweet, succulent shrimp with wine and vegetables makes a very satisfying meal. Make sure to have plenty of good crusty bread on hand to sop up the delicious juices! • 2 tbsp. plus 1/4 cup fruity olive oil • 2 lbs. large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail left on • 2 large red onions, diced • 10 large garlic cloves, minced • 2 medium white eggplant, sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds, then cubed (if you can’t find white eggplant by all means use regular eggplant) • 4 small zucchini, sliced into half moons • 3 red bell peppers, seeded and diced • 4 medium ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced • 1/4 cup capers, drained • 3/4 cup dry white wine • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar • 3/4 cup raisins • Kosher salt • Freshly ground black pepper • 2 tbsp. za’atar (found in Middle Eastern markets, optional but delicious)
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp generously on both sides with salt and pepper. When the oil is shimmering sauté the shrimp in batches until opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the
shrimp and tent with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining oil to the pan and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onions and sauté until translucent and slightly colored, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Put the eggplant in the pan and season generously with salt and pepper and cook until slightly softened and starting to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook until starting to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the peppers, tomatoes, capers, wine, vinegar, raisins, salt, pepper and za’atar if using. Bring to a boil and cook until some of the liquid has evaporated. Top with the cooked shrimp, cover and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning to your palate. To serve, transfer to a large serving bowl. Serve hot. Makes 8 servings.
2013 FATE VIOGNIER Fate wines are created by Thomas Allen, an experienced sommelier living in Jackson who makes wine from grapes produced in Amador County. This is his third vintage under the Fate label, and his first experience creating a white wine. Viognier is a very temperamental grape from the Rhone region in France whose origins can be traced all the way back to the Roman Empire. The nose of the 2013 Fate Viognier has subtle hints of peach and honeysuckle, but the finish has dry minerality, which pairs perfectly with the abundance of flavors and textures found in this month’s Shrimp Caponata. —Geri Walcott, Events Manager, 36 Handles Pub & Eatery

great balls of blah Décor Gone Wrong by Tom Mailey
y wife has good taste when it comes to appointing our home. The furniture matches; our walls are adorned with family photos; knickknack shelves have just the right amount of knicks and k n a c k s . S o w hy s h e insists on continuing to display the one item in our home that makes no decorative sense is baffling to me. It’s on our FOR MORE TOM’S TAKES kitchen table. In fact, it AND... takes up a substantial WHAT’S COMING portion of it. I had to NEXT MONTH? move it before sitting DON’T MISS STYLE’S “20+ down to my laptop to EATS AND DRINKS AROUND TOWN,” PLUS MUCH MORE, write this. I’m looking at VISIT STYLEFEDH.COM. it right now. 66 stylefedh.com - February 2016
It is a great big bowl of balls. Now, I almost get the bowl part. We eat cereal out of bowls, and soup, and it’s on our kitchen table. I kinda see a connection. But the balls? No. One is made of woven reed; two others, woven twigs. One has a bell in it, like a cat toy… it might be a cat toy. Another seems to be a large wad of dried moss, and still another appears covered in scales made of almond shavings. One I think is some kind of ocean sponge creature, or creatures. The whole ensemble is weighted down with a single heavy ball of polished granite. There isn’t one that you could throw, hit or bounce. They’re ornamental only. They’re useless. Now, I’m no Frank Lloyd Webber or
Wright or whatever his name was; home design is not my forte: When Vickie met me years ago, the sole artistic statement in my studio apartment was an old Nike poster of early-’80s basketball star Darryl Dawkins sitting on a throne above the words “Chocolate Thunder.” My couch looked like it was made from the kilt of a color-blind Scotsman and my living room lamp was a bare bulb at the end of a brass stick. Vickie taught me useful interior décor tips like, posters are better left in your college dorm room, couch patterns shouldn’t remind you of an explosion at a ribbon factory, and lamps should have shades. But even I know there is no point to a bowl of balls—figuratively or literally. More than anything, the ball bowl is just in the way. The kitchen table is not only a place to eat, it’s a place to study, write or browse the Internet. I don’t believe it was ever meant as a place to sit and contemplate a bowl of random balls. Also, what to do with the ball bowl when we do sit down to eat, study or surf the web? The bowl itself is the size of one of those Chinese sun hats, only upsidedown. The only space large enough for it besides the kitchen table is the pool table. But the pool table already has a purpose—it’s where our laundry goes. The last time it was actually used for playing pool was 2011. So usually the bowl just gets shoved back and forth from one side to another, like the sole piece to an odd, unwinnable board game. I wish I had the courage to state to my wife that, you know what, the bowl of decorative spheres has reached the end of its usefulness in our house—we’ve gotten our money’s worth, dear, but it’s time to move on. However, that would require a couple spheres of my own, and those have been in my wife’s purse for the last 25 years. So, this bowl and I will continue to co-exist. I’ll move it when I need to, ignore it when I don’t, and when it’s really bugging me, maybe I’ll distract myself by finally putting away the laundry and shooting a game of pool.
