MARY BROWN MALOUF, food editor, hadn’t

tasted goat cheese until the ‘80s when her friend Paula Lambert, owner of Dallas’s The Mozzarella Company, started making it. “It was fresh, tangy and reminded me of lambs and springtime,” Malouf says. Today, her kitchen is never without it. “In Get Your Goat,” (page 111) Malouf dishes up some recipes, expert tips, a list of goat-cheese-serving eateries and an introduction to Mesa Farms and its owner/ cheese maker Randy Ramsley. “His story is so inspiring,” Malouf says.

It’s no wonder she enjoyed writing about this issue’s kitchen remodel (“Striking the Balance,” page 46) where pros—along with the home’s outgoing owners—transform a dated, cramped Avenues kitchen into an open family-friendly space. “Renovations can go bad fast, especially when a home is stripped of its original character,” she says. “The best remodels harmonize the old and new.”

Finish Line N

OT LONG AGO, while photographer Scot Zimmerman and I were shooting a home’s spectacular chef-style kitchen, we couldn’t help but marvel at the enormous La Cornue range. A behemoth of stainless steel and gleaming brass, it had the turn-on factor (and matching price) of a racing-red Ferrari. I couldn’t help but ask the homeowner how she enjoyed cooking on the magnificent machine. “My husband is the cook,” she told us, “and he only does that in the butler’s pantry. We wouldn’t dare mess up this room.” Whoosh! Talk about a zero-to-60-in-four-seconds letdown. Instantly, the kitchen had stalled out. It’s absolutely true what designer Brenda Laurel said, “A design isn’t finished until someone is using it.” I’m happy to report that this issue of Utah Style & Design is packed with “finished” rooms, homes and, yes, even a barn. All are enthusiastically “driven” by their owners, all of whom personally created their projects or played a large part in doing so. Builder and designer Ezra

Lee constructed a home in Lehi for his young family. It teams fun and functionality with confident, contemporary design. In her updated Federal Heights home, Marilyn Kalbach worked with designer Michele Dunker to prove livability and luxury can easily, and stylishly, coexist. Builder Lane Myers filled his family’s new Midway home with comfort, honest materials and modern farmhouse style. And in Pleasant Grove, Page and Brian Westover enlisted talented pros to help them create a new working farm replete with greenhouses, gardens and a surprisingly multi-purpose barn that anchors the property with purpose and iconic beauty.

TRAD WITH A TWIST Your first official act of spring: Refresh your fabrics. Designer Jason Wilde chooses seven updated classics and offers insight on what makes them new for today’s décor.

Jason Wilde


“We’re seeing a more traditional direction in design,” says Jason Wilde, principal of Harman Wilde Interior Design in SLC. But, he insists, this doesn’t mean stuffy, stiff or staid. “It’s comfortable, clean and authentic.” No more artificial stage-set interiors—no more exaggerated chevrons, heavy industrial elements or stark white-on-white décors. “Today’s look is like going home,” he says. “It feels comfortable and safe.” Boring? Not a chance. For proof, he offers seven reimagined classic fabrics and tips on what makes them perfect for the fresh new look of today’s traditional home.


perfect for indoor use as well.

“The exaggerated scale and bold coloration turns this menswear staple on its end,” says Wilde. “I’d definitely use it for draperies, and it would make amazing bedding.”

2. CHINTZ “More contemporary colors like this acid green make chintz look new and fresh,” says Wilde. “When it comes to chintz, more sheen is more modern. And today, florals are bigger.” Elizabeth by Schumacher

5. HERRINGBONE First, it’s not chevron. It’s herringbone, Wilde emphatically points out. “It’s also embroidered and a natural for Mid-century to old-money Palm Beach.”

“Awning stripes are so expected, but a pinstripe is fresh and new,” Wilde explains. Crisply colored, this outdoor fabric is

“A relaxed textile and soft colors put a more casual spin on the classic trellis pattern,” says Wilde, who likes this renewed fabric for upholstering cushions, chairs or even a sofa.




A rift of plaid, this has a handdrawn feel perfect for a light cotton, not a heavy wool. “It’s windowpane instead of Prince of Wales plaid,” Wilde says. “That makes it feel fresh, as do its colors.” Lucas Check by Frederick Mason

7. STRIPE OF BIRDS “Normally seen on chintz and among exploding floral patterns, birds look new on this fabric,” Wilde says. This pattern-type lets you add a trendy theme or motif to your décor without over-committing or breaking the bank, he adds. “This would be perfect for a custom kidney pillow.” Birdsong by Chivasso

1 Fresh Pea Soup with Mint A classic flavor combo Cook 1 chopped onion and 2 chopped leeks in 2 Tbsp. butter until they are soft. Add 4 cups of chicken or vegetable stock and 5 cups of peas. Cook until peas are tender, then stir in about 1/2 cup of chopped fresh mint leaves, 2 tsp. of salt and 1 tsp. of white pepper. Puree in a blender, one cup at a time. Serve warm or cold. Top with a dollop of crème fraiche.

2 Three-way Peas A festival of pea-ness 1


Saute 4 minced garlic cloves and 1/2 tsp. grated ginger in 1 Tbsp. of olive oil. Stir in 3 cups snow peas and 3 cups of sugar snap peas and saute until barely tender. Stir in 4 cups of pea shoots, cook for just 2-3 minutes, then serve.

3 Mushy Peas A British favorite with fish and chips Bring a shallow pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add frozen peas, and cook for 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain peas and transfer to a food processor. Add a few Tbsp. of butter, salt and pepper to taste, and process until still thick but with small pieces of peas. If it seems too thick, mix in a Tbsp. of heavy cream. Stir in 2 tsp. of lemon juice. It’s a great side dish for ham. 3

A variation of a Venetian favorite Cook a minced clove of garlic in 2 Tbsp. olive oil, then stir in a heaping cup of Arborio rice and saute a minute. Add a quart of warmed stock or water, a ladleful at a time, cooking until absorbed after each ladleful. Stir in a cup of peas, 1/4 cup diced, frizzled pancetta and 1/2 cup corn. Finish with 1/4 cup or so of grated Parmigiana-Reggiano cheese.



VALLEY OF THE SUN Spring is slow to arrive in Utah, but in Phoenix the season is in full bloom. For proof, visit the city’s celebrated Desert Botanical Garden where acres of wondrously planted desert are woven with meandering trails, spectacular vistas and striking venues. More than 23,000 accessioned cacti and succulents, of all shapes and sizes, are gathered from all over the world and presented in an outdoor gallery, placed and paired to accentuate their forms, colors and unique characteristics. “We present them as art, not simply species tagged with their name,” says Horticultural Director Brian Kissinger, who passionately views the desert landscape as a canvas and the cacti and agaves as his medium. “We create beauty for beauty’s sake, not just displays,” he explains. The garden’s peaceful paths, towering saguaros, fragrant desert blooms and swathes of shapely agaves flowing across the landscape combine to create an unforgettable sensory experience. Don’t miss the season’s calendar of events, plus a new Butterfly Pavilion and Horticultural Campus, both opening this spring. Desert Botanical Garden,

“We forget to appreciate the amazing, dazzling world that surrounds us, full of a million different shades that have the power to lift our spirits or soothe our moods.”

“Layering is essential, whether it be a natural fiber rug under a dhurrie or an assortment of wood, shagreen, and bone-inlay boxes.”

“If you have animals, probably stay away from owning a rocking chair.”

“When making a floral arrangement, it is best not to overthink the placement of colors, thinking too much about it will keep you from noticing the serendipitous beauty of nature.”

“I believe in living each day to its fullest, loving with an abandoned passion and decorating to our heart’s content.”

“Any surface, architectural element, or detail that is meant to be perceived as aged must have the proper scale, fabrication, aging, patina and texture.”

X Marks the Spot The menu at Table X isn’t the only thing showcasing imagination, creative talent and quality ingredients. The Salt Lake City restaurant’s interior is equally impressive. Table X’s food is getting rave reviews, but the décor is equally delicious. From the old building’s original barrel-vaulted ceiling and birch floors to the daring interior conceived and created by designer Andrea Beecher and pros from Parallel Lines, the restaurant is one of the most stylish in Salt Lake. “We are very detail-oriented in our food and approach to service, and it was natural for us to want to be just as meticulous with the design and the message that we were sending,” says Nick Fahs, one of three chef/owners. That message: Be prepared for delightful surprises, from what’s served on the plate to the décor that surrounds it. Decorative treatments range from understated to surprising. “Sometimes our food can be humorous and interactive,” Fahs says.”You can see some subtle elements of humor and interaction in the design too.” We asked Beecher about these and her inspiration, fave feature and the importance of details.


U TA H S T Y L E A N D D E S I G N . C O M

My design inspiration was a summer trip I took to Iceland. The dark basalt landscape brightened with colorful wildflowers inspired the restaurant’s backdrop of black, gray and white on which the food is like the foliage and flowers­—the art in the space. We didn’t want the environment to distract from the fresh, vibrant food. My favorite feature is the veil, a brass cage that masks the kitchen lights. Suspended from the ceiling, it’s steel grid backed by steel mesh finished to to look like bright burnished brass against the black wall. The large space works because we broke it up but kept it open. Curtains create a front vestibule that open into the big reveal. Three 8-foot-tall, tufted booths create intimate settings on one side of the room while banquettes on the other side hug the tables in

the middle. The kitchen sits in the center of the room so patrons on all sides can interact with the chefs and watch them work. Details should be a seamless experience from the largest to the smallest elements, like our 75-footlong wall mural referencing rock formations, down to dishes handmade by local artisan Clark Marshal. This ensures a design’s integrity. Don’t miss the back dining room. It has a 16-foot custom communal table, views overlooking a working garden and two large murals by David Lecheminant. You’ll be surprised by the opening between the restrooms’ shared, stone wash basin. It’s a little salacious, a little sexy. Table X, Andrea Beecher,


Fresh Spin One of the most versatile and hardest working spaces in Utah homes, today’s laundry room is awash in style and fully loaded with fabulous, functional features. BY BR A D M EE


U TA H S T Y L E A N D D E S I G N . C O M







Porcelain tile floors, leather-finished granite countertops and storagerich cabinets fill this Holladay home’s laundry room with practicality and fresh style. Interior designer Kristin Rocke contrasted the light and dark surfaces to add a hit of drama while choosing classic door fronts and a lantern pendant to bestow timeless flair. In the corner cabinet, a pie-shaped Lazy Susan houses easily-accessed vases and open shelves hold grab-and-go baskets. “We wanted a multi-purpose space that would work for laundry, crafts, wrapping and work,” says interior designer Caitlin Creer, who worked with homeowner LeeAnn Myers to create this spacious, lightfilled room. Navy cabinets by Christopher Scott Cabinetry pair with a backsplash wall of brown hand-formed tile, a herringbone patterned floor and a mix of quartz and butcher block countertops to give the versatile room a fresh take on farmhouse style. Midway home by Lane Myers Construction. Shiplap walls, a farmhouse sink and a custom ceramic-tile patterned floor foster the classic coastal feeling of a Holladay home’s spacious laundry room designed by Elizabeth Kimberly Design and built by Jackson & Leroy. Painted a soft gray, custom cabinets provide abundant storage space, as do deep shelves sized to fit a collection of striped baskets. A wide counter topped in Caesarstone stows a trio of laundry bins below.

In Bountiful, designer/architect Robert McArthur added a skylight to deliver light to a windowless laundry room and used shelves and open cabinets to create a feeling of openness and space. Custom copper-finished tiles and hand-made accent garden tiles animate the room, as does a large-floral wall covering. ”Wallpaper adds a little drama to the mundane task of doing laundry,” he says. An expandable, hanging rack adds function and flexibility. In Park City, designer Jenny Samuelson chose pale yellow cabinets, light gray walls and white trim to cheer a vintage-style laundry room.

U TA H S T Y L E A N D D E S I G N . C O M

Hex floor tiles, a rolling laundry cart and classic ceiling-mounted lights foster the timeless design, as do even the small details including glass knobs and a wall-mounted ironing board.


Surprising details can elevate the style of even the most practical of spaces. In this Midway home, Caitlin Creer and LeeAnn Myers charmed a small laundry room with patterned flooring and an interior dutch door. Hushed-toned walls painted with Benjamin Moore’s Collingwood offsets the laundry room’s fresh white trim, door and appliances.



In a contemporary Holladay home’s light-filled laundry room, a polished nickel industrial light fixture hangs above a custom work table island made of powder-coated gray steel and raw-oak slabs. The table provides an ideal place to fold clothes or spread out a project, and its shelves stow laundry baskets below. Concrete floor tiles energize the space and stainless steel countertops foster its functionality. Interior design: Elizabeth Kimberly Design; Contractor: Jackson & Leroy. In Lehi, a contemporary sitting room doubles as a laundry space and craft room. Sleek white cabinets hide the washer and dryer while a peninsula designed with a waterfall countertop provides a place to fold

clothes or sit while working on homework and projects. Design by Ezra Lee Design + Build; cabinets by Marwood Design.


A Visual Comfort pendant illuminates a Holladay-area laundry room completely clad in Schumacher wallpaper. “All the pattern makes the room really festive and fun to be in,” says interior designer Anne-Marie Barton. Rather than conceal the appliances behind cabinetry, she “celebrated” them by leaving them open to the practical, yet pretty, room. An upholstered window bench rests on cabinetry by Premier Woodwork, and tile flooring resembling wood planks flows throughout.

newly-purchased 1905 Avenues home. Tobler couldn’t wait to take on the challenge: Transform the Livers’ kitchen from claustrophobic and outdated to family-friendly and modern, while still maintaining the home’s turn-of-the-century charm.

OPPOSITE: Once small and outdated, the Livers’ kitchen now enjoys expanded space and a fresh design while retaining it’s turn-of-thecentury character.


“It was a kitchen for hobbits. I felt like, ‘I can’t breathe in here!’” Tobler says. ”The size would be an issue for most people, but it was especially problematic for Greg and Julie, who cook and entertain often.” Gatherings around charcuterie platters and hand-crafted cocktails weren’t in the cards unless the space was reorganized. First item on the agenda: Reconfigure the spaces. Architect Ann Robinson of Renovation Design Group drew up plans for a more functional family space by modifying the existing pantry and mudroom layout, and removing a wall between the tiny kitchen and an unusable living room featuring a working fireplace. “Greg envisioned sitting by the fire sipping whiskey après-ski while chatting with friends and

PAST PERFECT Brittany Tobler’s top tips for mastering modern design while paying homage to authentic architecture.




Don’t overdecorate


No need for bold patterns when a home’s original features can shine on their own. “We used neutral-colored linen Roman shades for the windows to showcase the frame of the window,” the designer says. She also made sure the home’s original stained glass windows and lighting fixtures were left intact and on display.

Look for leads


Why start from scratch when an old home is flooded with design clues? “We special ordered the fireplace tile to complement tile on another fireplace in the home,” Tobler explains.

Pick the right pros


“Hire vendors that understand and respect old homes,” Tobler suggests. The subcontractors chosen for this project—from the painter to the woodworker—understand the high level of craftsmanship required for Avenues homes.

Mix it up


When it came time to choose new flooring that would run into the original flooring from the adjoining dining room, Tobler was prepared. “Matching new wood to old wood floors is always a challenge,but as long as the woods are close in hue, type and size like this red oak, it’s totally acceptable to see a little variance between the new and old flooring.”

Curate with care


Display pieces that reflect the personality of the house as well as the homeowners. This home doesn’t scream fine china or crystal stemware—instead, colorful everyday pottery and glasses are the perfect fit.

family in the kitchen,” Tobler explains. Without the obstructive divide, the old living room transforms into a cozy, off-the-kitchen sitting area. She gave the fireplace a facelift with new tile, similar in color to that adorning the home’s other fireplaces. Now, the sun streams through the sitting area into the kitchen in the mornings and sets behind the backyard’s 100-year-old Norway maple tree seen through kitchen windows. Fortunately, removing that wall didn’t strip the home of its identity. “We kept the exposed brick, the original wood around the windows, all the stained glass and most of the lighting fixtures,” Tobler says. “It doesn’t happen with every house, but with this home, I had a really strong vision of where I wanted to go. There’s so much character already, and it was really important to me to maintain that.” The designer expanded the charm of kitchen’s original exposed brick by running brick veneer along the room’s longest wall. Here, two symmetrical nooks house appliance storage, cookbook shelving, a wine rack and the family’s control center with a bulletin board and desk. Next up? The cabinetry. Charlie Hastings of Wood Revival matched the painted millwork and cabinet hardware in the kitchen to those of the pantry, but finished the mudroom doors and bench with wood stain. Hastings also designed and installed the kitchen’s main attraction: a nine-foot-long walnut-topped island. Tobler says, “Along with soapstone countertops, exposed brick wall and a white farmhouse sink, Greg was set on having a butcher block island.” Accessorizing the room came with it’s own set of challenges. “Greg is more traditional, but Julie’s taste is more modern.” To appease both, the designer suggested incorporating traditional and contemporary additions including classic bentwood stools but with a punch of color, tailored occasional seating but with a mid-century edge, and a rustic wooden coffee table but with industrial legs. Pendant lighting boasts a schoolhouse vibe, yet the clear glass and shiny nickel provide an updated look. “With old home remodels, it’s all about balancing old and new,” Tobler says.

Soapstone countertops, exposed brick and a white farmhouse sink were among the homeowner’s must-haves for the renovation

hen floral designer Kellie Jackstien creates floral arrangements, she focuses on the detail and beauty of each bloom—its shape, color and texture. And when it comes to working with springtime blossoms, she’s in design heaven. The deep tone of a merlot-hued Japanese sweet pea or the dramatic arch of a heavy-headed parrot tulip, for example, can put her on cloud nine. “Spring flowers feel so fresh and new,” she explains. “Plus, many are grown in natural conditions rather than greenhouses, so they are more vibrant.” Jackstien, owner of Artisan Bloom, recently collaborated with event planner Mara Marian of Fuse Weddings and Events to transform the interior of La Caille’s light-filled Grand Pavilion for a chic, celebratory White Party hosted by Utah Bride & Groom magazine. The event’s aesthetic: “a glam and romantic design full of polished and luxe details,” Marian says. For the floral arrangements, Jackstien worked with Esprit Raw Flowers and chose vibrant, toneon-tone purples and fuchsias. “The monochromatic palette is modern and highlights the textures of the flowers,” says Jackstien, explaining that modern used to mean sparse and clean lines, but today it’s about bloom-to-bloom design with lots of texture. On the following pages, Jackstien’s White Party creations inspire ideas for creating similarly striking springtime florals to brighten any room, including yours.

Low and Lush Black calla lilies and fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids drape from a centerpiece of fragrant lilacs, dark-purple hydrangeas and merlot dahlias forming the arrangement’s compelling composition. She arched the stems to keep the arrangement’s height below eye-level, preventing the riot of flowers from obstructing views and conversation over the table. She chose a footed antique-brass bowl to keep the cascading flowers from hiding the gold-toned container.



“A lot of thought goes into making an asymmetric arrangement look like little thought went into it,” says Jackstien, describing her creation of this voluptuous arrangement of Darcey garden roses, licyanthis, black calla lilies, fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids, artichokes, dark purple hydrangeas and merlot dahlias. The designer used a mass of ebullient blossoms, rather than greenery, to shape the centerpiece and then draped eye-catching orchids and calla lilies on one side while making the blooms on the opposite side equally arresting. “Asymmetry is harder to achieve than it looks. The balance has to be right and the colors have to be in the perfect spot,” she explains. Floral designer Kellie Jackstien, Artisan Bloom

Off Balance


Simple and Stunning Jackstien showcases four colorful anemones in a surprising container—a stemless champagne flute. “It’s uniquely appropriate for a cocktail party,” she explains. She included a chocolate geranium leaf to make the anemones’ violet and pink tones stand out. “Green and purple are so spectacular together,” says the designer, who wanted to highlight the individuality of the blossoms. “If I used a mass of flowers, you would lose the beauty of the individual blooms.”



Creatively Collected


Starting with a group of bronze containers, Jackstien created a highand-low composition of flowers and candles staged on low-sitting cocktail tables. “I love to layer complementary, side-by-side arrangements and nestle them together,” she says. “You get the wow-factor of a large arrangement and the texture and depth of lower ones.” An abundance of eggplant-hued tulips, fuchsia anemones, hydrangeas, artichokes, sweet peas, budded lilacs and tight clusters of gray-green brunia berries flourish on a backdrop of chocolate geranium leaves. “You have to choose foliage as carefully as you do flowers,” explains Jackstien, who selected the geranium leaves for their fuzzy texture and fragrance.

Branch Out “I love any fruit that is still on the branch,” says Jackstien, who uses everything from branches of crab apples and kumquats to persimmons and pears in her designs throughout the seasons. For these centerpieces, she chose springtime’s stemmed artichokes to add texture and surprise to her floral-heavy arrangements. “They bloom and grow like a flower.”

Glam Slam Jackstien paired stemless flutes of purple and eggplant-colored Japanese sweet peas with taper candles flickering in tall glass cylinders. “Never have an unlit candle at a party,” she says. “It says the occasion isn’t special enough.” A mirrored table amplifies the sparkle and colors of the composition.

PETAL POINTERS Designer Kellie Jackstien on... floral trends, hot colors, mistakes to avoid and must-have vases. What’s today’s hot look for arrangements? Most of my work is weddingbased. The bohemian, deconstructed look is more popular with Utah brides while out-of-state clients prefer more classic, bloomheavy arrangements with cleaner lines and more neutral colors. What’s a common floralarranging faux pas? People lose the impact and interest of individual blooms by using too many of the same flower in an arrangement. What is your advice for keeping cut flowers fresh longer? Clean water is imperative. If an arrangement’s water is cloudy, I run water over the flowers until the water clears. I also mist flowers daily because they drink from their petals, too.


What’s new with color in 2017? We are seeing more color and brighter greens. Foliage will be vibrant with fewer dusty greens and more bright, grassy tones. We’ll even see more green roses. What vases should everybody own? Two clear-glass cylinder vases: one eight to 10 inches tall and the other wider and shorter, around four inches tall. These are classic, clean, modern and make floral design so easy. Flowers almost arrange themselves in these vases.



Farm Raised

Page and Brian Westover passionately lead a talented team to create Snuck Farm, a family-owned farm and legacy project on a bucolic property in the heart of Pleasant Grove. BY BRAD MEE


A small herd of alpacas gathers in the front pasture of Snuck Farm in Pleasant Grove. The new barn features a hayloft and working area at one end, kitchen and living spaces at the other, and a large passthrough in the center. RIGHT: “It’s a unique way to separate the working and living areas,” says project designer Louise Hill about the tall passage through the middle of the barn. The passthrough connects the front pasture with the back yard, garage and greenhouses.

hen it comes to having a love for farming, family and community, Page Westover doesn’t fall far from the tree. She drew upon her grandfather and father’s passions as she and her husband Brian created Snuck Farm, a new working farm located in the heart of Pleasant Grove. “It began as a legacy project,” says Page. “I

wanted to build something that would last through the ages and would involve our family.” Snuck Farm is named in honor of Page’s grandfather, Boyd “Snuck” Fugal. He and his wife Venice cultivated the land where the farm and greenhouses now stand, a small 3.5-acre portion of the original Fugal family homestead settled in the late 1800’s SPRING 2017

and acquired by Boyd in 1945. “My grandfather was a community servant, there to help anybody,” Page recalls. That same sense of giving inspired the project’s development from the beginning. “We wanted to preserve the land and the rural, wholesome feel of Pleasant Grove,” says Page, who was joined by Brian and her father Guy Fugal on this endeavor. “This place is special to us, and we wanted to save it to somehow share with the community.” Surrounded by residential developments where open farmland once flourished, Snuck Farm conjures another time: bucolic, peaceful and purposeful. “We fell in love with the small community farms in England that we saw during my parents’ LDS mission and knew we had to do something similar with this land,” Page explains. The Westovers and Fugal began the journey in January of 2013 by meeting with landscape architect Jeremy Fillmore, who designed the farm’s grounds and helped develop a site plan identifying where to locate the new buildings: a barn, garage/workshop and multiple greenhouses in addition to others that could be added later. The Westovers then signed up architect Warren Lloyd, project designer Louise Hill and project manager Anna Friend to design and create Snuck Farm, including its main attraction, a spectacular barn. “The piece of property is incredible,” says Hill, who imagined the expansive acreage of years past rather than the existing three-plus-

acre plot so she could help design a barn large enough to appear original to the land. “We wanted the barn to look like it had been there forever and things just grew in around it,” she explains. Indeed, the 7,330-square-foot barn is impressively large. It boasts a hayloft and working barn at the east end, kitchen and living areas at the west end and a unique pass-through connecting them in the center. “One of the interesting constraints about the project is that the site is long and narrow, so we needed access through the barn rather than just putting a big barn in middle of the field,” Lloyd explains. With 14-foot-high openings and a vaulted ceiling of more than 30 feet, the pass-through easily allows vehicles to travel from the front pasture to the yard, garages and greenhouses behind. The passthrough frames spectacular views of Mount Nebo to the south and Mount Tipanogos to the North. Inside, it features three large chandeliers that illuminate the wood and stone-clad interior space ideal for hosting large gatherings, al fresco dinners and plant sales. “We put a lot of flexibility into the barn’s design,” Page explains. Unquestionably, Page is most drawn to the new greenhouses where she and her team grow greens hydroponically—not in soil but in nutrient-enriched, recirculated water to conserve water and eliminate agricultural runoff. She and Brian knew they wanted to grow much of the farm’s produce this way, but had to search out SPRING 2017


“My Grandma came from a long line of sheep herders, and she loved keeping sheep and watching them in the pasture,” says Page, who chose the art in the living area as a nod to her grandmother’s heritage. From the sitting area, one can see across the pass-through into the barn’s working area.

experts and advice on how to do it. “No one near us was doing this, so I had to do a lot of cold calling and research,” says Page, who visited hydroponic greenhouses as far away as New Zealand. Today, herbicide- and pesticide-free greens and herbs, from assorted lettuces and kale to basil and bok choy, grow year-round inside the greenhouse. The Westovers sell to restaurants and cafeteria groups as well as to the community of Utah County through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm membership program. Members purchase subscriptions giving them access to the farm’s freshly harvested greens and other local food products that can be picked up

weekly at locations across Utah County. “People want access to fresh food, and this is an easy way they can get it,” says Page, whose passion for food and community drives her work. In addition to producing garden-grown vegetables and fresh eggs, Page and her team hold classes for CSA members and the public and host an annual plant sale on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Snuck Farm’s mission statement—eat well, do good—is a simple, heartfelt one that guides Page and her family each day as they grow the farm into the future. “We are a work in progress and it’s so exciting to think of all the different things we can do,” she says.

“Snuck Farm is one of Utah’s hidden treasures,” says Mary Crafts-Homer, founder and CEO of Culinary Crafts. “The vision of a hydroponic farm was the beginning of a masterpiece—a space to create farm-to-table artisan food within the walls of artisan architecture.” CraftsHomer and her team at Culinary Crafts have hosted and catered three pop-up dinners at Snuck Farm, all of which included the farm’s fresh-picked produce served under the soaring ceiling of the barn’s pass-through. For salads, she served heads of baby butter lettuce fresh-picked from the hydroponic greenhouse, plated heirloom tomatoes from the garden with fresh pulled mozzarella, just-picked basil and a balsamic reduction sided with herbed olive oil and house-made focaccia. “The opportunity to serve greens, herbs and vegetables at a dinner in the same GPS location where they were grown is a foodie’s dream come true,” Crafts-Homer says.

She and her team introduce each course served, detailing where the foods come from, describing how each course is prepared and explaining what inspired the unique menu for the popup they’re hosting. “We offer pop-ups so more people can experience our unique brand of catering,” Crafts-Homer says, explaining that before the pop-ups, the only way people could enjoy their catering was to be a client’s invited guest. “Now, anyone can purchase a ticket to experience our one-of-a-kind, multi-course meals,” she says.

Fresh Start Designer Michele Dunker and client Marilyn Kalbach update a Salt Lake City home, infusing it with classic, chic and delightfully posh style. BY BRAD MEE

hen Marilyn Kalbach first visited her future home located on a tree-shaded street in Salt Lake’s Federal Heights neighborhood, she was charmed by its tailored gardens, high ceilings and brilliant interior light. The traditional décor, dark colors and crowded furnishings, however, caused her pause. “I could see there were things I really loved and others I wasn’t really sure,” she recalls about the 1980s home. So she turned to interior designer Michele Dunker for a second opinion. The two had collaborated on three of Kalbach’s previous homes and had developed a friendship that extends beyond the projects. “Michele really understands me and I understand her,” Kalbach explains. “When you’re in sync with your designer, it really helps.” Dunker immediately recognized the property’s underlying beauty. “Once we discussed Michele’s vision, I could see it would be a great home for me,” Kalbach says. “We were most drawn to the home’s classic elements,” Dunker recalls. The exterior, she explains, is European-inspired—simple with interesting windows. Lush gardens envelop the cream-colored house with wisteria-covered trellises, manicured hedges, shaped topiaries and mature shade trees. “It takes a long time for gardens to reach this stage—they’re an art form,” she says. Planters of boxwood orbs add to the landscape’s timeless style and frame an impressive front door. “The door is amazing, tall and grand,” says Dunker. “In Europe, doors and ceilings are massive, and this home’s original owner understood that.” Compelling scale and timeless style continue inside. “We decided to take the home from massively traditional to traditional-contemporary,” says Dunker. She added molding and shadow-box details to enhance the existing molding and replaced the dark, red-andhunter-green color palette with one of warm whites lay-

ered with ivories and taupes. “I prefer a calming neutral environment,” Kalbach explains. Dunker choreographed a mix of old and new, clean-lined and ornate elements that dance throughout, adding sophistication and endless surprises. In the foyer, for example, she dressed the barrel ceiling with grasscloth lattice wallpaper from which a single Thomas Pheasant pendant light hangs above a custom cowhide-topped table accented with gold studs. The foyer affords direct views into a beguiling living room. There, and throughout the home, expansive windows and French doors allow dazzling natural light to flood the interior. The soaring ceiling, more than 12-feet high, draws the eye upward with molding masterfully formed in a classic bordered-ring pattern. A Parisian pendant by Boyd Lighting hangs above the serene room where plush seating fills the space with elegance and ease. A palette of luxurious fabrics unifies the furnishings, and Dunker and Kalbach spent hours making the selections. “I love looking at fabrics. We would go through baskets of them, and I’d practically drool over the wools, tweeds and angoras,” Kalbach recalls. ABOVE: A large skylight illuminates a large gallery featuring ornate railing by artist Taras Siniagovsky.

Located at the end of the gallery, a Baker table by Thomas Pheasant is paired with whimsical Oly benches and a plush, custom daybed upholstered in a Mark Alexander mohair. Dunker added molding to the end window wall to create dimension and architectural interest.



Wisteria grows over a trellis covering the large outdoor patio.“It’s where I live in the summer,” Kalbach says. The patio is level with the kitchen and family room that overlook it, making the outdoor area seem more a part of the home’s living space, Dunker explains. Outdoor fabrics are by Opuzen.

A Thomas Pheasant chandelier hangs above a cream-colored Bernhardt table paired with a luxe, high-back settee. Two custom chests frame a garden-view window dressed in tailored Holly Hunt draperies and Conrad shades. “This is my favorite room, it’s so tranquil and inviting,” Kalbach says. As it turns out, every space—inside and out—delights Kalbach. The calming master bedroom offers a cherished place to lounge and read in front of the fireplace. The lightfilled gallery provides abundant wall space to display art and, at its end, a library table surrounded by whimsical benches, stacks of books, curiosities and a custom daybed anchors a sun-warmed spot where Kalbach retreats in front of windows overlooking the gardens. During the summer months, these gardens—and their trellis-covered patio—become an outdoor living room where she spends time relaxing and entertaining. Indoors and out, Kalbach enjoys every space she and Dunker have created. “This home has the right owner,” Dunker explains. “It deserved somebody like Marilyn to make it so special.”

Busy working parents, the couple required that their home would maintain itself even with the clutter and mess of three young boys. “I wanted an organized, easy-to-clean home that was also inspiring,” says Ashley. Before Ezra headed to the drafting table, he and Ashley asked how they pictured themselves living in the home and using the spaces within. Ezra asks his clients the same questions every day.

In their previous home, the master bedroom was located on the main floor and the children’s rooms were upstairs, resulting in many sleepless nights going up and down stairs. When they designed this home, they created a sleeping level: All bedrooms are upstairs. To retain the privacy of their master bedroom, Ezra designed a spacious suite that includes a separate

sleeping area, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet— with each zone clearly defined by its unique function. A lounge-like laundry room serves as a transitional space between the master suite and the boy’s bedrooms and includes a craft table, sitting area and TV. “I can do laundry, the kids can do homework and Ezra can watch a movie, all in the same place,” says Ashley. Ezra designed the home’s lower level solely for entertainment and activity. It includes a sport court, climbing wall and sunken trampoline. “This sets me up for success as a father,” he says. “It’s so easy for SPRING 2017

A separate shoulder-season patio, steps above the pool area, features a fire pit and enclosed barbecue, allowing the family to enjoy being outdoors, even when weather is not ideal. Ezra designed many elements of the house to meet specific purposes. “The butler’s pantry is completely separate from the kitchen and features open shelves and counters. Everything is within reach and eyesight,” says Ashley. “I know exactly what I have and I

do most of the food preparation in the pantry—which keeps the kitchen clean.” The master bathroom features dedicated his-and-hers drop stations. “We literally drop everything from our pockets into these areas,” explains Ezra. “Instead of cluttered nightstands, we have a place for everything.” A cabinet dedicated to toiletries is located steps from the shower so everything needed to prepare for the day is front and center. “Small details can save time and make life more efficient,” says Ezra. The couple strongly believes function and form are equally important when creating livable space. As Ezra explains, “You can appreciate a well-designed home.”

very home I build, I build as if it is my own,” says Lane Myers, principal of Lane Myers Construction. In this case, the home actually became his own. He and his wife LeeAnn didn’t always plan on moving in, but halfway through constructing the farmhouse-style home that Lane had designed and intended to sell in Midway, he and LeeAnn knew they simply had to keep it. “It was even better than we had imagined it would be; it was perfect,” Lane says. The couple not only loved the home, but obviously had firsthand knowledge of the care and quality that went into creating it. That made their decision to move in even easier.

For more than 25 years, Lane has built everything from Victorian to Craftsman houses and was intrigued by the idea of creating a farmhouse-style home. “I wanted to do something different,” he explains. “Farmhouse style is so timeless. It’s as cool now as it has ever been.” To begin, Myers purchased a one-acre lot in the heart of Midway. “It was ideal—flat with cottonwood trees down one side,” he recalls. “I was like an artist with a blank canvas.” Myers looked to past projects for inspiration as he moved forward, taking the best features of the homes he had built



over the years and weaving them into the new Midway modern farmhouse. “LeeAnn and I wanted main-floor living for the two of us,” explains Myers, who located the master suite on the main level along with the foyer, great room, office, guest suite, main laundry and mudroom. He placed additional bedrooms and baths, a second laundry and a bonus room on the home’s second level—along with a spacious suite with its own living and dining areas, kitchen, bedroom and bath. “It’s like a built-in casita,” Myers says. “As parents get

older or kids come back home, we wanted a separate place for them to stay.” In addition to the carefully conceived floor plan, Myers paid keen attention to the details. “ Details set a home apart,” he says. Originally Myers considered a large pivot door for the home’s main entry but he decided on a more style-appropriate half-light door with seeded glass and a custom hand-forged doorknob and lock set. For numerous interior painted-brick walls, Myers chose worn rather than wire-cut brick and insisted the mason create sloppy mortar joints. “People ask if they

are the original part of an old house,” Myers says of the brick’s character. Naturally aged timber beams, a forged iron railing, hand-selected fireplace stones and wire-brushed, white-oak flooring are among the materials that breathe authenticity into the home. While the house is large with impressive scale, Myers prevented the interior’s volume from reducing the level of comfort. Large trestle wood beams and tongue-and-groove planking adorn the great room’s soaring 22-foot ceiling, helping to lower it visually. “They prevent the room from feeling like a

gymnasium,” he explains. A planked ceiling performs similarly in the kitchen. Throughout the home, Myers created hallways that are generous, but not overly wide. “Bigger is not better,” he explains. “It’s a fine line. Too big can be uncomfortable.” Interior designer Caitlin Creer collaborated with LeeAnn to enrich the home with comfort and character. “Our goal was to create a family-friendly, timeless interior that would be a welcoming place for friends and family,” Creer says. Hushed tones quiet the rooms, infusing them with calm. “The walls are light gray—not too blue or too brown,”






FARMHOUSE CHIC 1. Shimmering metallic grasscloth wallpaper lends elegance and texture to the chic powder room. A wood-based vanity adds a touch of rustic charm. 2. Located on the second floor, a bonus room provides a spacious area where kids can hang out and spend time away from the main living areas of the home. 3. Walls of worn, painted brick and hand-selected stone suffuse the living room with texture and farmhouse style. 4. The front door’s distinctive hand-forged hardware performs like a memorable handshake of the house. 5. An industrial wood chandelier by Arteriors hangs above the family room where a wall of windows and wide sliding doors open to a patio and spectacular landscape. 6. A wall-hung sink and patterned concrete tile floors lend vintage charm to a kids’ bathroom.

A large sparkling pool can be seen from the back of the home. Mature cottonwood trees overlook newly landscaped property in the heart of Midway. BELOW: French doors and large windows throughout the home open the interior to patios, a pool and scenic mountain views.

Myers explains. In the light-filled living room where stone, painted brick and custom shelves animate the fireplace wall beneath, two nailhead-trimmed sofas covered in carefree outdoor fabric offer spectacular patio, pool and mountain views. In the dining room, Gustavian-inspired host chairs pair with a farmhouse-style table beneath an iron lanternlike chandelier; in the master bedroom, a linen wingback bed looks through French doors to a private patio and fireplace. “We balanced rustic details with a hint of elegance and formality to create refined-but-casual living spaces throughout,” Creer explains. After a career designing and building unique residences for others, the Myers have created their own special haven, one they and their family can enjoy for years to come. “This house is so special,” Lane says. “We’ve truly created a timelessforever home.”




Get Your Goat

Easy ways to savor and serve fresh, flavorful goat cheese. BY MARY BROWN MALOUF


SPRING HAS SPRUNG and for many of us that means a heightened desire for fresher, more flavor-forward foods. Enter goat cheese. Its farmyard aroma, creamy texture and tangy taste complements many foods from meat to fruit to vegetables, making it a go-to ingredient for chefs this season and throughout the year. SPRING 2017



Let’s Talk Tortas Chevre layered with other foods is called a torta. They’re easy and impressive to make and allow for nearly endless improvisation. Chopped smoked salmon? Chopped dried apricots? Chopped sundried tomatoes? You get the idea.


Cut a log of goat cheese into one-inch slices. Drain excess oil from pesto, then reassemble the log with pesto between slices. Wrap in plastic and chill. Line a mini loaf pan with plastic wrap, then alternate layers of softened goat cheese with tapenade. Chill until firm. Line a small terrine mold with plastic wrap. Mix equal parts cream cheese and goat cheese with crushed oregano, then layer the cheese with drained pimentos. Chill until firm. Cut a crottin in half horizontally. Thickly spread your choice of filling on the bottom half, then replace the top. Chill until firm.

The Goats of Mesa Farms NEAR CAINEVILLE, just outside Capitol Reef National Park, is the source of one of the most prized goat cheeses in Utah. Mesa Farms is tiny—only 50 acres—and owner Randy Ramsley produces more than cheese from his little farm. He also grows produce and bakes bread. The little purple house has become a favorite roadside stop for foodies in the know. Goats graze in the field out back on a management intensive system that protects the health of the landscape as well as the goats. Cheese is Mesa Farms’ star product, although there isn’t much of it. In 2017, Randy will milk 45 does, averaging about 18 gallons of milk a day, resulting in about 18 pounds of cheese. Caputo’s, in SLC, buys every bit of it, except what is sold at Mesa Farm Market in Caineville. According to Matt Caputo, “We have a 2.5 pound to 4 pound Tomme that we call ‘Barely Legal.’ This one is unpasteurized and is

aged the minimum of 60 days, which is required for the sale of unpasteurized products. It’s an Italian style Toma.” Mesa Farms produces three cheeses: chevre, feta and Tomme, an aged semi-hard alpine-type cheese with a naturally moldy rind. According to Ramsley, a French woman named Roseline stopped by Mesa Farms one day and became so fascinated with the cheese that she returned a year later with a French recipe for the Tomme, now prized by Utah chefs. Mesa Farm Market, Caineville,

FLAVOR FACTS Look for local fresh goat cheeses like those from Shepherd’s Cheese and Drake’s Family Farms if you want a milder flavor. The “goatyness” of goat cheese has several causes. Goat’s milk is naturally homogenized, so it ages faster than cow’s milk—as it ages it gets “goatier.” Some say the milk’s flavor is naturally stronger if the bucks live with the bucks and does year round. Goat’s milk is closer to human milk than cow’s milk, so it’s better tolerated by those with a dairy sensitivity.

FAST, FRESH, EASY Simple recipes that start with one crottin of goat cheese Any of these make a great dip for crudites or spread for crackers, apple or pear slices, pita triangles or baguette rounds. • Mix with a Tbsp. of olive oil and fresh thyme. Or basil. Or tarragon. • Turn on your processor, drop in a garlic clove and a little salt. • Put a crottin and 3 tablespoons of oil-packed dried tomatoes with oil in the food processor and blend. Other great recipes: • For a warm snack, stuff mushrooms or artichoke hearts with the goat cheese mixture and pop in the oven for a few minutes. • Warm some raspberry jam with some thyme leaves in the microwave and pour it over a cake of goat cheese.

DEEP FREEZE Fresh goat cheese is great to have on hand. Fortunately, you can freeze it. Double-wrap it in plastic, then place it in a freezer bag. Date it. It will keep up to three months. Thaw it in the refrigerator.

CHEVRE IS WHAT most of us think of when we say “goat cheese.” People have been making this fresh cheese for thousands of years. Goats were domesticated before cows and cheese keeps longer than milk, especially when treated with salt, so chevre ( French for she-goat) was the perfect food for nomads in the Middle East. It is one of the most versatile of cheeses—chefs crumble it on salads, stuff it in chicken, mix it with herbs and oil to make a spread, coat it in crumbs and bake it, even add sugar and egg to make goat cheesecake. Find it in logs, tubs or the traditional French crottin— a cake of cheese about 2-3 ounces. SPRING 2017
