editor’s note

heartfelt design


hen you look at this issue’s

cover, I’ll bet your pulse quickens. The strong architecture, the vibrant colors and the fearless furnishings—it makes the heart race. That’s what great design does. Creating excitement with content is key to my job, and it’s something I love. When I first saw this interior, the decision to feature it was a no-brainer. The project belonged in the magazine. In the design world, we refer to rooms like this as “editorial.” They pop on the page with big personality and witty details. Sure, this room may or may not fit your style. Too colorful, too quirky, too modern: maybe, maybe not. Too provocative? Not a chance. Regardless, if a room is well designed, it stimulates thought. And with thought comes ideas as well as the inspiration to take a fresh look at your own spaces. We loaded these pages with this kind of compelling editorial. Designers Belle Kurudzija and LaMar

Lisman join architect Ann Robinson to transform the cover’s mid-century modern ranch from tired to inspired; this house captivates. Designers Jessica Bennett and Suzanne Hall refresh a once rustic Orem home with elegance that’s as comfortable as it is chic. Meanwhile, design pro Beth Ann Shepherd dazzles a Montage residence with full-on mountain glamour. Faux fur and sexy chandeliers paired with log-end wallpaper and patchwork cowhide? You bet. “We wanted every corner to excite and entice,” she explains. It’s a lesson to take to heart. When it comes to the home, every inch deserves stirring design be it subtle or sensational.

MIXER OF THE MOMENT: BEER Crave a cocktail but love your brew? No problem. Beer-based hoptails are all the rage, quenching thirsts with their surprising twist. The parallel trends of craft beer and artisanal cocktails have crossed streams: “Hoptails,” cocktails using beer as a mixer, are the latest twist on libations. Combining the personality of a cocktail with the food-friendliness of beer results in a beverage that’s eminently drinkable. Proof of popularity: The Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America presented their first-ever hoptail competition at their convention this past spring. The winner, called the “Delightful Deception,” was an unlikely combination of lambic beer, Bols yogurt liqueur, grapefruit juice and jalapeño. Make no mistake; this type of concoction is on the rise. As craft beers continue to rise in popularity, bartenders are increasingly concocting beer cocktails in Utah and nationwide.


This hoptail is famous as a summer quaffer, but it’s also the perfect winter brunch beverage. Here’s our version of the Michelada, a Mexican beer and tomato cocktail. INGREDIENTS Juice of 1/2 medium lime Ice Mexican beer, such as Corona 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 2 Tbsps. tomato juice 1 tsp. hot sauce, such as Tabasco 1/2 tsp. Maggi or soy sauce Freshly ground black pepper Smoked salt, for rimming the glasses Green onion brush, lime wheel and cherry tomato for garnish. INSTRUCTIONS Mix lime juice, tomato juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce together. Rub the rim of a glass with cut lime, then dip in smoked salt. Fill glass with ice, pour in tomato mixture and fill glass with beer. Garnish.

natural selection From posing sculptural skulls to framing colorful insects, Jean-Michel Arrigona passionately makes art from some of nature’s most arresting creatures. For Utah artisan Jean-Michel Arrigona, converting insects and countless creatures into art is not a dramatic change from his 23-year former profession of making furniture. “Furniture had beauty, and this is a natural beauty,” he says. Arrigona started posing bugs 13 years ago after buying one while traveling, and today he sells his fascinating art creations from his Midvale showroom Natur.

Arrigona obtains the subjects from across the globe. From Jewel Beetles from Thailand to Giant Blue Morpho butterflies from Peru, all insects are obtained legally, often from sustainable bug-rich preserves.

From selecting and rehydrating insects, to staging them in real-life positions, Arrigona loves the posing process most. “It’s not just about selling a bug, but about presenting it as art,” he says.

Butterflies in acrylic boxes, bats in glass domes, bird-sized beetles in frames— Arrigona sells displayed pieces and also customizes clients’ creations. Got a net? You can even bring in your own bugs.

“There is a bug for everyone,” says Arrigona, who focuses on the form, color and texture of each piece—even the creepiest crawler—to elevate it as art. He also shares their stories. Creations range from $7 to $1,800 each.


Big on bugs? Head to the Natural History Museum of Utah to see its Entomology collection or attend the “Bug Brigade,” where you’ll learn about, observe and even handle live insects. nhmu.utah.edu/bug-brigade –Sage Singleton

As the owner of Platinum Landscape, Rick Meinzer is a big fan of stone. It’s a key element in his designs, injecting style, scale and substance to projects throughout Utah and across the Mountainwest. We asked Meinzer to share some rock-solid strategies for choosing and using stone in a memorable landscape. Can you guess the biggest mistake most of us make?

rock your world Landscaping with stone requires some heavy design strategies. Pro Rick Meinzer offers tips for integrating it into your garden.

Selecting undersized stones is the most common error people make when landscaping with rock. Outdoor scale is so expansive that it’s better to err by choosing stones that are too big rather than too small. Select landscape stone to complement the home’s style and current stone elements. If existing stone is attractive, match it. If it’s not, complement but don’t repeat it. To ensure continuity, avoid pairing strongly contrasting stones like chunky sandstone and rounded river rock in the same project. To get the biggest bang for the buck when using stone, choose a feature piece with strong character (color, lichens, shape) and position it as a focal point. It will make a big impact and cost much less than installing a stone wall or walkway. To foster a natural look with stone, bury one-third of large rocks below ground level. Create outcroppings or groups of rock rather than peppering individual boulders across a property. When adding a retaining wall, remember it is less costly to install a stone wall than a concrete wall faced in stone. Create a subsurface for flagstone paths to provide stability, level ground and longevity. Choose quartzite instead of sandstone for walkways. It resists fatigue and flaking. Use stone on multiple elevations in the landscape—underfoot, on walls, posts and in planting beds to create dimension. As with all elements, be mindful not to overuse stone or you can diminish its design impact.

Clockwise from upper left: Undulating stone walls enhance a Park City home’s landscape; stone steps lead to a crushed stone path; set into the earth, large boulders surround an in-the-ground gas fire feature; complementing the home’s exterior, stone clads low walls, floors and a hot tub.

Take the Anasazi Trail just outside of Ivins to the southwest, and head about a mile east to see boulders adorned with intricate carvings. The arts Ivins’ artistic souls reside in the Kayenta community where Coyote Gulch Art Village welcomes visitors to browse art galleries and studios. If you prefer the performing arts, see a Broadway musical at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre. dining Salt Lake magazine editor Mary Brown Malouf recommends Xetava Gardens Café in the artsy Coyote Gulch community. The blue corn pancakes for breakfast or lunch are a safe bet, but to get the full experience, make plans for dinner under the stars. golf Nearby, you’ll find the Entrada at Snow Canyon Golf Course, which offers stunning greens placed among the red rocks and lava flows.

tep aside kale and brussels sprouts, cauliflower is taking the title as the latest unlikely star of the kitchen. More than a cloud-white head of bland, cauliflower surprises

with hues of orange, purple and chartreuse as well as unexpected preparation possibilities. Look beyond the usual rocky (or mushy) side dish of buttered florets. Forget cauliflower’s

modest role as an inevitable part of a crudités platter. Instead, take inspiration from innovative chefs who are crumbling, creaming and roasting it for a delicious reveal on the plate.

Prep Pointers Choose

Put florets in food processor with 2 Tbsp. cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. salted butter, 1 clove minced garlic and pulse until smooth. Thin with chicken or vegetable stock, if necessary. Season liberally with pepper. Garnish with chopped chives.

Roasted Cauliflower Toss cauliflower florets in olive oil and place in an ovenproof pan with mashed garlic. Roast at 500 degrees for about 15 minutes, turning frequently so cauliflower browns lightly. Squeeze lemon juice over the florets and sprinkle with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

icture the inside of a vintage snow globe. Feathery flakes swirl around an A-frame cabin and a warm glow emanates from the windows as smoke curls from the chimney. Inside, a table laden with wine bottles and gleaming glasses sits at the ready. But look closer and the nostalgic scene gives way to a thoroughly modern sense of comfort and fun. All set for a party, a foot-high dinner table surrounded by big satiny pillows beckons guests to get comfortable on the floor. In the background, a talented tattooed chef is hard at work in the open kitchen. That was the scene at Katie Eldridge’s lovingly renovated cabin in Brighton Estates on a blustery night last March. Owner of Panic Button Media in Park City, Eldridge is a part-time resident of this remote neighborhood located about two miles from Guardsman Pass. There, winter means the only modes of transportation are snowcats and snowmobiles, and watchful neighbors are the most precious commodity. All were employed for the dinner Eldridge hosted as a fundraiser for the National Ability Center (NAC)—a Park City nonprofit known globally for supporting and enabling the dreams of people with disabilities and making it possible for them to engage in all kinds of sports. Most NAC benefit dinners (there are several, all on the same evening) are staged in palatial

Snow flurries flying, guests convened just off Guardsman. Some climbed into a compact snowcat, others hopped onto snowmobiles. About 25 minutes later, they all piled out into knee-deep snow and stomped into the cozy cabin. Vintners Jason and Suzanne McConnell of Rivino Winery were already settled in, ready to pour their wines, all donated to the cause. Rivino, a boutique winery in Mendocino, produces only about 2,000 cases a year. After treating guests to fat, juicy strawberries sprinkled with cinnamon (surprisingly compatible with Rivino’s chardonnay), chef Asi Yoked of Park City’s Reef’s Restaurant served a gorgeous red snapper ceviche with mango, shallots, grape tomatoes and fresh ginger. Next up, white shrimp with watermelon and Bulgarian feta; filet mignon with a mild tomato “stew” and a fresh quail egg. Hot whiskey Malabi (a rich milk pudding) fortified each diner for the ride back to the Pass. Bellies full, guests reluctantly headed back out into the night, back into the snowcat, back on the snowmobiles, back to a world made a little better through generosity and gracious entertaining.

Superb Craftsmanship

The new kitchen, built on site, boasts extraordinary workmanship elevating its quality and character. Notable features include full inset-style doors and drawers fitting exactly within the perfectly square cabinet frames, walls built out to be flush with the cabinets and trim pieces that terminate precisely. “The most challenging and rewarding part of the project was maintaining the high level of detail without missing a single thing,” says Ford.

Period Design

The owner favored the 1901 home’s arts and crafts cottage style over its Victorian leanings. Capturing the Shingle style character was “about being honest with the materials and the craftsmanship,” Cornelius says. In the kitchen, the team prioritized a functional floor plan distinguishing the cooking and mingling spaces and linked the room to those nearby with large openings that ease the interior’s traffic flow.

tep into the new kitchen of this circa 1901 Salt Lake City home and you’ll find it difficult to determine what’s original and what’s not. That’s exactly the intent of the homeowner who hired architect/designer Scott Cornelius and contractor John Ford to expand and remodel the entire Shingle-Style home, giving it modern ease and vintage charm. “The goal was to make the house function better for the family without losing its historic nature,” Cornelius says. With the architect’s down-to-the-details design and Ford’s skillful execution, the homeowner’s objective was remarkably realized.

Glass-front Cabinet Doors

Glass-front doors give a sense of openness and make the upper cabinets look lighter,” says Cornelius, who describes the feature as common to butler pantries of the era. To enhance the treatment, the team inset tile inside the cabinets creating the illusion that the running-bond backsplash expands upward and behind the cabinet shelves.

Mixed Materials

Understated granite and glazed celadon wall tile provide visual relief from the widespread wood of the quarter-sawn oak cabinets. The stainand-oil finish was favored over paint for its easy maintenance and the richness and sense of permanence it lends the room.

“The most challenging and rewarding part of the project was maintaining the high level of detail without missing a single thing.” — John Ford

Design Details Layered Lighting

Never mind ceilings pocked with countless recessed lights. Vintage Holophane industrial pendants drop from the high ceiling bringing it down to a comfortable human scale while illuminating the kitchen with style. “Hanging fixtures give a better light and relate better to the space,” says Cornelius. Ford created a small apron to conceal under-counter LED lighting that illuminates the tile backsplash. He also installed task lighting over the sink.

Forget stainless steel. This ceramic, apron-front farmer’s sink better suits the room’s casual, vintage style. New windows feature unfettered lower panes that frame views while upper portions are broken up to relate to the patterning of the room’s upper cabinets.

Hide and Seek

The team played hide-and-seek with the pantry by concealing it behind a door of vertical tongue and groove paneling that lines up perfectly with that of the wall. The adjacent refrigerator is completely trimmed out with wood and is designed to somewhat resemble an old icebox. USD


Featuring a simple design and matte nickel finish, the kitchen’s hardware is so honest that it showcases attachment screws. “Often, overly fussy hardware is used to attract attention when the cabinetry isn’t interesting,” Cornelius says. Here, conversely, the plain handles allow Ford’s furniture-quality cabinetry to showcase his artistry.

WHY IT WORKS Details that make all the difference in this remarkable remodel.

Wide doorways and generous sightlines improve the flow between the individual rooms that comprise the new floor plan. Inset-style carpentry exemplifies the way quality cabinets were built a century ago and are designed to last indefinitely. A small amount of stainless steel lends a modern edge without being so prevalent as to appear dated in the future.

Unifying the interior spaces, a stunning wood staircase and the living room’s beams and built-ins feature white oak that link to the kitchen’s floors and cabinetry. Artisan-quality, precision-fit brass pegs enable homeowners to adjust the cabinets’ interior shelves. A distinct bead detail, executed by hand, adorns the perimeter of each drawer front.

A solid choice for bathrooms throughout time, stone is making a splash today in some very showy, very surprising ways. by Brad mee

ing a new look to bathrooms of all types. Sure, stone is known as a long-lasting, highly-durable option for bathroom walls and floors, but it’s today’s surprising treatments and unique fixtures that are making the material more dazzling, more dynamic and definitely more statement-making than ever before. From glowing onyx and classic marble to ornate agate and patterned granite, stone has become today’s decorative must-have for splashy spaces, from showy powder rooms to luxurious master baths.

Although Salt Lake’s Grand America Hotel is renown for traditional design enriched by dark stately woods, polished marble floors and elegant woven tapestries, designer Frank Nicholson took a different tack when designing the 5-star hotel’s newly-expanded and remodeled spa. A swoon-worthy palette of textured fabrics, honey-hued woods and mixed stone surfaces shape the light-toned, modern décor. The look is understated but definitely not boring, thanks in no small part to the inclusion of stunning Rainforest Brown serpentine from India. “Its large-scale veining has big movement and makes it really dramatic,” says Italia Granite’s Cory Ellsworth, who sourced countless slabs of the deep brown material for flooring insets, gleaming accent walls, spacious showers and elements enriching the 20,000-square-foot spa. “The concept was to combine a contemporary sophisticated residential warmth with dramatic textural materials that connect the new facilities specifically to the experience of being in Salt Lake,” says Nicholson, who created a space that reflects the natural beauty of the West. “The monumental scale placement of the Rainforest stone provides unexpected drama and a sense of being in a special place.”

Onyx is a unique and rare standout choice for the bathroom. Each piece is a one of a kind.

Onyx is soft and scratches and stains easily. Avoid acidic liquids and any objects that will scrape the surface.

Onyx is available in a broad selection of colors and features, distinctive patterns and veining that create bold visual statements.

Seal onyx after installation and clean with stone cleaner on a regular basis to help prevent scratching and staining.

Think light. Onyx’s translucent quality allows you to accentuate its beauty with backlighting.

Check your wallet. Onyx is one of the most expensive natural stone options and not a top choice for those on a tight budget.

At Ease

A team of party pros offers a fresh, stress-free approach to throwing a serene winter soirĂŠe. BY brad mee

orget late-night feasts, overdressed décors and harried hosts indulging guests in holiday excess. That was so last season. The calendar has turned, and this winter we crave light and bright, calm and comforting. With that in mind, we invited a team of catering, event-planning and floral design pros to pool their talents while hosting a dinner party in downtown Salt Lake City. After all, who better than the experts to show us how to entertain with style and ease? The result was a relaxed get-together that was as modern and fresh as the chic loft in which it was held.

THE PLAN The Blended Table’s Emery Lortsher and Colour Maisch are well known for planning and catering memorable events throughout Utah, so when asked to help stage a winter soirée with fellow pros, they were good to go. Inspired by a recent trip to the Northwest, they decided on an Asian-influenced menu and envisioned a chic, contemporary setting and décor that would complement the cuisine. Enter event planner Gary Vlasic who turned to cityhomeCollective’s Cody Derrick for a spectacular on-the-market loft owned by one of Derrick’s clients. Decoration Inc.’s Amanda Hansen fashioned the party’s flowers, mixologist Ryan Manning poured drinks and a few associates and friends rounded out the short guest list.

Opposite: Floral designer Amanda Hansen paired Coral Charm peonies with magnolia branches in a resin vase resembling marble.

Clockwise from upper left: Colour Maisch prepares a wrapper for spring rolls; the kitchen island doubled as a buffet from which guests filled their bento boxes; Maisch and Lortsher crusted a whole sea bass from Aquarious Seafood Market and served it as a main course; patterned napkins added character and color to the dark dining table.


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



“There was a time when the hostess had to do everything, but the whole kinfolk, gather-around approach has changed things,” Lortsher says. Today, guests often contribute, easing the work, cost and stress of throwing a party. Hired help also lightens the load. Maisch and Lortsher decided on a casual gathering with guests participating and supplementing the spread with agreed-upon dishes and take-out fare. “You have to manage the offerings to avoid redundancy and people bringing similar things,” Maisch says. Partygoers ordered drinks from Manning, made spring rolls together, plated bento boxes buffet-style and dined informally throughout the evening. “It’s not potluck. It’s planned participation where friends naturally want to take part,” Lortsher says.

Open spaces, modern furnishings and soft light flowing through floor-to-ceiling windows made the 3,300-squarefoot Broadway Loft the ideal spot to host the early evening get-together. “During winter, it’s nice avoiding cold and dark when going out,” says Lortsher. An open kitchen’s island served as a high-style prep and serving station for the fare while a nearby counter performed as the bar. The loft’s open floor plan ideally suited the small group allowing guests to wander, socialize and nosh at their leisure. Some drank and dined in the hip seating area while others gathered at the dining table where flickering candles, flower arrangements and colorful linens elevated the loft’s chic ambiance.

Bento boxes fostered the party’s casual Asian style and allowed guests to easily partake in dishes including grilled kabocha squash, green papaya salad and steamed dumplings.

READY TO PARTY? From cocktail parties to casual gettogethers and intimate sit-down dinners, entertaining at home is all the rage. Party-planning pros Emery Lortsher and Colour Maisch of The Blended Table offer tips for making the most of your at-home soirée.

Order out You don’t have to make every dish yourself. Incorporate take-out from your favorite restaurants into your menu, reducing the pressure of extensive shopping and cooking.

Pour with a Pro Signature cocktails and specialty drinks elevate the élan of most any party. Enlisting the help of a professional bartender who can pour with precision and chat with guests takes the pressure off the host.

Invite involvement Plan your menu and encourage guests to bring a dish. Different from a potluck approach, this focuses on specific fare and requires coordination to avoid duplication of foods.

Mix it up Today’s casual get-togethers often involve guests cooking, prepping and serving foods together, making for fun and memorable moments. But be careful, warns Maisch. “Interactive parties work for small groups but not well for large gatherings. Too many people and it can become a free-for-all.”

MAN THE BAR What’s a party without a signature cocktail? Mixologist Ryan Manning served up the evening’s simmering sip, the Yuzu Toddy. Ingredients: 2 oz. Yamazaki 12 yr. Whisky 1 oz. yuzu juice* 3/4 oz. simple syrup made from unrefined sugar** 3 oz. boiling water, plus enough to preheat mug

Instructions: Prepare a 10 oz. mug by filling it with boiling water. Empty the mug then fill with whisky, yuzu juice and simple syrup, and then top with 3 oz. boiling water. Garnish with clove studded orange segment or lemon peel. Stir and serve. *Bottled yuzu juice can be found at most Asian markets that carry Japanese products. **Bring equal parts water and sugar to a simmer over medium heat until sugar fully dissolves to make simple syrup. Can store in refrigerater up to one week (longer if fortified with a little vodka). Using unrefined sugar lends a richer, more complex flavor that complements fine spirits.

Shimmering votive holders and an assortment of gold vases overflowing with Red Charm peonies and blue thistle dress the dining table.

“I began with containers that could perform as decorative objects and stand on their own,” says floral designer Amanda Hansen who passed on “obligatory glass” for a mix of gold bowls and vases as well as boxy marble-looking resin vessels. Large, ruffled peonies, in shades ranging from pale coral to deep red, made eyecatching statements throughout the loft. Single blooms floated in small bowls while multiple stems mingled with splaying magnolia branches in large vessels and still others mixed with deep blue thistle in various vases running down the dining table. “Grouped arrangements look less structured and forced than a large single centerpiece,” says Hansen, who kept the table’s informal florals compact and low allowing seated guests to see over and around them.

Plan the flow and furnishing placement to comfortably accommodate guests. Move furniture that will be in the way and position the bar away from the food.

THINK SMALL The best appetizers are most often small bites or contained foods that allows guests to nosh with one hand while holding a drink or napkin in the other.

Clockwise from top left: A steaming hot cocktail warms the white winter day; Emery Lortsher and Cody Derrick chat in front of a large canvas by artist Hyunmee Lee; dumplings from Takashi added to the list of mouth-watering appetizers served; tea and quince gelee served with matcha tea cookies ended the evening’s light meal perfectly; the open floor plan encouraged guests to move around and mingle throughout the evening.

HIRE HELP Let professionals ease the stress of throwing a party. “Our mission is to discover what our clients want and what makes them happy,” says Lortsher, who, along with Maisch, incorporates clients’ favorite family recipes and entertaining ideas into events, large and small.

Period Pop A respectful renovation and daring décor move a midcentury modern home into the 21st century. BY Brad mee

The home’s butterfly roof allows the cedar slatted ceiling to slope upward, drawing the eye up and out through floor-to-ceiling windows. New ceiling insulation, solar panels, bamboo floors and energyefficient windows are among the renovation’s ecofriendly additions. Boldly furnished sitting areas animate the large, open great room.

Below: The step-down entry boasts a new door and glass entry wall; modern furnishings add color and interest against cedar-slatted surfaces.


ttering the words “good bones” to describe a house is akin to using “sweet personality” to sell a blind date. The expressions sound warning bells. But when architect Ann Robinson used the former phrase to explain the original condition of a mid-century modern home that she, designers Belle Kurudzija and LaMar Lisman, and contractor Matt Russell recently remodeled, it was pure flattery. “We knew this house was great from the beginning,” says Robinson of the dynamic Salt Lake dwelling that dates back to the 1960s. “Our goal from the start was to remodel it, while respecting its unique style every step of the way.” Nestled in a quiet Cottonwood neighborhood, the 3,000-square-foot, single-level dwelling has what few homes can claim: authenticity. Its flat architectural planes, big windows, wide-open rooms and strong connection to the outdoors are archetypal of classic mid-century modern design. Fortunately, the owners’ commitment to maintaining the original style remained steadfast throughout the renovation process. “Preserving the architectural integrity of the home was extremely important,” Lisman says.

The shimmering riveted brass fireplace treatment was added early in the home’s life. The designers added clear glass firebox doors.

For the sort who appreciate and live in homes of this kind, there is little waffling when it comes to remodeling decisions. They remove imprudent alterations made over the years and lovingly restore damaged and timeworn elements. The home’s owners took this route, while also adding modern conveniences and sustainable features to their must-have list. Following their clients’ lead, the pros transformed the dwelling into an improved version of its original self, complete with a few surprising twists. The fun begins at the step-down entry, where a new glass wall and modern glasspaned door draw light into a foyer completely clad in cedar planks. Its once-cherry wood floor is now ceramic tile, a modern solution that’s more functional, says senior project designer Kurudzija. The small foyer steps up into an impressively large great room walled by expanses of new energy-efficient windows linking indoors and out. This splitlevel transition from a private entry into an open, light-filled interior is a hallmark of mid-century modern design and one the team resolutely retained. “We spent a lot of time choosing replacement windows with frames that don’t impose on the views or the architecture,” Russell says. Many additional features define the great room’s distinctive design. Overhead, a cedar-slat ceiling follows the lines of the unique V-shaped butterfly roof while unifying the open living, dining, kitchen and entry areas. “The ceilings make the whole space,” Kurudzija says. A brick wall extends from the great room out onto the patio, visually linking indoors with out. Lisman and Kurudzija strategically painted this and other walls chalk white. “White creates a gallery look that allows the architecture to stand out,” Lisman says. It also provided the ideal backdrop for a bold mix of bright colors and shapely forms introduced by large-scale furnishings, eye-catching art and select accessories. “We used color and function to divide the large living room,” says Lisman, who worked with Kurudzija methodically to form conversation and reading areas devoid of structural barriers. Beginning with intensely colored rugs placed atop new winte r 2 0 1 4


bamboo floors, the duo formed three high-style groupings. For the first, they clustered four zebra-patterned wingchairs that break the room’s low horizontal lines and add a highly unexpected pop of pattern. A second grouping pairs a lowprofile tufted orange sofa with an iconic Eames chair. For the third, they placed a navy womb chair and round nesting tables in front of the stunning riveted brass fireplace. While individually impressive, the room’s furnishings were teamed to fill the space with statement-making style. “This is all about the look, not the separate pieces,” Lisman says. To transform the dark, outdated kitchen into a light-filled, functional space, the team enlarged an existing window,

reconfigured the room and installed a new breakfast bar to replace a solid wall separating the kitchen from the adjacent dining area. Kurudzija and Lisman swapped the kitchen’s laminate countertops with quartz, and installed beech wood cabinets distinctly designed with matching horizontal grain that runs continuously across the doors and drawers. Rodlike hardware dresses the cabinets, while “quirky” geometric patterned glass tile animates the backsplash. “I had the most fun on this project,” Kurudzija says. The same holds true for all of the professionals. From the start, each had a special fondness for the 50-year-old house, good bones and all. USD

Serene Sanctuary Designers Jessica Bennett and Suzanne Hall recast a rustic Highland home as a luxurious retreat BY Jessica Adams Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat

hen an interior designer and a homeowner meet for the first time, their conversation often covers a laundry list of must-haves and talk of personal style. Throw in a few inspirational photos and the design project is good to go. It’s not often, however, that a client presents her preferences through a meticulously prepared PowerPoint, but when she is an executive software engineer, that scenario doesn’t come as a surprise. This Highland home is a serene, clutter-free retreat providing a reprieve from its owner’s logic-based occupation. Suited for the jet-setting fashionista, the interior is peppered with personal effects of Hermès scarves and Valentino pumps, reflecting its lived-in luxury. While working with this client, designers Jessica Bennett and Suzanne Hall of Alice Lane Home Collection strove to cultivate the home’s cocoon-like, comforting ambiance. “She didn’t want anything too exact because she deals with that all day long,” Bennett says. “Understanding who she was as a person made it easy to work with the house.” The home boasts a fresh, clean-lined interior, warmed with a neutral color palette, perfect for its always-on-thego owner. In the main living areas, Bennett and Hall incorporated natural elements using living plants and framed

In order to further personalize each space, Bennett and Hall called in local visual artist and designer Tyler Huntzinger, best known for his inspiring plasterwork.

Huntzinger presented his interpretation of the drawing to the homeowner as a reminder that her grandfather is always watching over her. Bennett

and Hall completed the celestial effect with a chandelier that appears to cascade from the plaster foliage, replacing what was once rugged beams. “When we first came to this house, it was heavy with rustic detail, featuring dark, hammered beams extending across the ceiling,” Hall points out. “It threw your eye so you didn’t know where to focus, and it felt nervous.” The team removed the beams, dropped the ceiling and floated a large circle that diffuses the ceiling’s harsh angles, relaxes the room and showcases Huntzinger’s artistry.

as the great room’s finishing touch. It not only tones down the rustic feel of the original rock, but also adds an ethereal aura to the room. “It looks like heaven ruffled its feathers,” Hall says. “When I first saw it, that’s what came to mind and I thought it was absolutely perfect.” The kitchen is another flawless representation of function meets fashion with impeccable Calacatta Marble countertops and sophisticated dove gray backsplash. Embroidered white linen roman shades give the room texture and delicate luxury, and pendant fixtures above the island and dining table perform as jewels that polish it all off.

I love that Alice Lane provided a canvas for that.” USD

t’s not surprising the owners of this Montage Deer Valley residence turned to designer Beth Ann Shepherd to elevate the elegance of their mountain getaway. Shepherd specializes in chic. “Our client asked for decadent diva design,” says Shepherd, owner of the L.A.-based firm Dressed Design. “I told her, ‘You want glam? We are glam.’” And in just a few short weeks, Shepherd transformed the five-star condo’s granite-laden and dark wood-clad interior into what Shepherd affectionately refers to as the Ice Castle. “Think of it as a reflection of the morning after a winter storm with everything sparkling like sun on new-fallen snow,” she says. To accomplish a winter wonderland effect, Shepherd adorned the residence with rich textures, polished metals mixed with steel and chrome, and dazzling statements. “I love drama,” she says. “I try to get it into every room.” In the guest bedroom suite, for example, she covered one wall with kindling stack wallpaper imported from Europe. Espresso, ebony and bark colors enrich the other walls melding natural elements with contemporary design. Shepherd layered the space with tactile delights—furs, textured surfaces and suede—to elevate the effect.

The homeowners wanted their luxurious residence bejeweled throughout. In the master bedroom suite, Shepherd and team responded by designing around a chrome and steel chandelier that dangles like a piece of Harry Winston jewelry. They then added a European white-oak paneled ceiling. “My goal was to create a modern, clean and elegant palette for a family who was used to a very traditional mountain home,” explains Shepherd. “Mixed metals juxtaposed with the hand-scraped white oak ceiling are a fabulous, unpredictable visual delight. It takes the room to a whole new level.” Layering furs, an alligator-stamped bench and a chenille sofa adds textures, creating a sexy, chic and luxurious space.

The entire interior is adorned with elements inspired by a Studio 54 mix of glamour and decadence. “We replaced the outdated staircase banister with one based on 1970’s design,” says Shepherd. “It was one of the smallest changes that made the biggest impact.” The new link-design banister and an adjacent wall’s polished nickel steer head infuses instant glamour. Similarly stunning, big brushed-brass handles on the nightstands in the master bedroom suite perform like jewelry. “I love Halston fashion and the ‘70s simple, sophisticated styles,” says Shepherd. “This leather-paneled nightstand is like that with simple lines set off by bold handles that remind me of earrings.” W inte r 2 0 1 4

The designer balanced opulent details with practicality. Every inch of the residence had to be multifunctional. For example, a small viewless alcove in the living room did not seem to have a specific function. So Shepherd created a luxurious camp getaway for children.

The designer also enhanced and lightened the living room’s traditional dark cabinetry by adding Italian ivory mohair panels and inserting antiqued mirrors behind the built-in bookcases. Similar dynamic treatments flourish throughout. “We wanted to create spaces in which every corner excites and entices,” the designer says. To her client’s delight, Shepherd and her team did just that. USD

Up in Smoke Fire-infused flavor burns hot as one of 2014's top food trends. by mARY BROWN MALOUF

photos by adam finkle

No wonder the flavor of fire was named one of the top food trends of the year. Americans are eating

more smoked seafood and meat than ever. They’re also eating smoked corn, smoked cauliflower, smoked chocolate gelato. They’re sipping smoked vodka and, yes, even smoked water. Weird. How about smoked ice cubes? Forbes reports that Ian Tulk, lead bartender at Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail, Colo., “puts ice cubes in the kitchen’s meat smokers; after the cubes melt, he pours the water back into ice cube trays and freezes them.” Tempted to take up smoking? We’re here to help you get started.

Top tools How to smoke at home

Traditionally, the art of smoking was limited to trained professionals because of the size of the equipment and the overpowering odor of smoke that accompanied the process, but modern tools put smoking within reach of home cooks. The battery-operated smoking gun allows you to smoke virtually everything. Load it with your combustible of choice, point and shoot cool smoke flavor into anything. Because it’s cool, you can smoke anything from salad to meringue. If you want to.

Lighting Up The start of Mary Malouf's smoking habit

It was one of those wedding gifts. Between us, we had accumulated three ex-spouses and had set up households in five different states before we settled together in a small house in Salt Lake City. In short, we had amassed more small appliances—blenders, toasters, juicers, salad spinners, mandolin slicers, hydraulic cork extractors, wine snorkels—than we could use and had no space to store them. And this Cameron smoker, a gift from a foodie friend, seemed like just another kitchen gadget—that year’s bread mixer, pasta machine or panini maker. So, the smoker stayed shiny and untouched in its box, next to a forlorn earth-toned crock pot, for two years. Then one day, as we loaded it in the car with the other detritus of life destined for Deseret Industries, my unreconstructed packrat of a husband said, “Look, it even comes with wood chips! Let’s at least try it once before we dump it.” So we bought a piece of salmon and followed the instructions, sealing it in the pan and placing it over low heat on our gas stove, just to see. Takeout Chinese was always an option. Fifteen minutes later, we considered ourselves smoking geniuses. The fish was moist and rosy, just tinged with the taste of the alderwood. We added a tiny squeeze of lemon. And the house was not, as we had feared, filled with choking fumes. We’re chain smokers now.



Liquid Smoke, that ‘50s favorite, is actually made from real smoke. Who knew? The smoke from wood chips is condensed into solids or liquids, then dissolved in water by a process called destructive distillation.

A stove-top smoker (see Lighting Up) is a more authentic way to get that irresistible aroma. About the size of a brownie pan, the smoker has a rack, a perforated pan and a sealable top, as well as assorted wood chips.

Into the woods

Fas hi oni ng your fi r e flavor Woods from fruit- or nutbearing wood are generally good for smoking, however, avoid woods with too much resin or sap. Mesquite smoke is strong and can overwhelm more delicate foods if you use too much. Cherry and Apple: Slightly sweet and fruity; mild, so good for poultry and ham

Hickory: Popular and pungent, so use it on heavy beef Oak: A strong but not especially pungent smoke; good for beef Alder: Is great with fish, especially salmon Maple: A lighter, sweeter hardwood good with pork

Pecan: Use on large cuts of meat.

Tip: Spice up your smoke by adding one or more of these ingredients to flavor your wood: tea, fresh orange or grapefruit peel, jasmine rice, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, star anise pods and rosemary branches.

smoking section Viet Pham proves that in Utah, smoking is not only allowed, it’s embraced.

smoke in the city Chefs around town are firing up their menus, using smoke to pump up the flavor in many of their traditional dishes.

Here in Utah, all the buzz is about Viet Pham’s new restaurant in Park City, Ember & Ash. Back in September, Pham’s foodie friends received a photo on Facebook: “a sea of mussels smoking gently over blue spruce.” Wow. The very idea makes one’s mouth water. “I think it’s a primal thing,” Pham says. “The smell of smoke is the essence of cooked food, part of the basic human relationship between humans and food.” That said, Pham offers some cautions to would-be smokers: “Less is more. Smoke is a strong aroma and can easily overpower other flavors. It’s best when used subtly–an elusive hint of smoke is often best."

Even if you don’t have time to smoke your own, there are lots of products you can purchase that will add that inimitable flavor and fragrance to your food. San Simon smoked cow’s milk cheese from Spain, available at Caputo’s, is just one (though one of the best) of the many smoked cheeses. Others include smoked Gouda, smoked mozzarella, smoked Cheddar, Bruder Basil, Rogue Creamery Smoked Blue Cheese and local Apple Walnut Smoked Beehive Cheddar. Smoked shellfish— oysters, clams and mussels—are available

Gnocchi with smoked tomato nage from Pago.

at gourmet markets like Liberty Heights Fresh. Coarse or sea salt smoked over wood is a great way to add a final fillip of flavor. Several local stores carry smoked salts, including Harmons. Chipotles are just smoked jalapeno peppers. A teaspoon or more of them, chopped, adds extra flavor to baked goods, meats, salads, casseroles and just about anything.

m a k i n g arrangements

The Trend is Clear hile your back was turned, bromeliads have uprooted fussy flowers and leafy greens in arrangements with wondrous results. Surprised? Don’t be. Not only do these compelling plants offer bold symmetrical style, but they also require very little care. Some don’t even need soil, including Tillandsias. Orchid Dynasty’s Clint Lewis teamed their spiky forms with lichen and pumice rocks in a long glass trough. Also called air plants, Tillandsias absorb nutrients through their foliage and, with regular misting, continue to captivate.
