Born

in a

Barn

Salvaged wood adds

historic character

to a new home in

German Village

BY STEPHANIE AURORA LEWIS

Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

What was once a dusty, derelict parking

lot in central German Village is

now a cozy new home that boasts

eclectic and historic charm. “If finding

an empty lot in German Village

was not challenging enough, we then

embarked on a journey to create a

design for a new home that mimics

the historic character of the area,”

says homeowner Michele. “The

design efforts and craftsmanship of

the assembled team helped make our

dream a reality.” ➻

Holding court

The home is largely organized around a centralized, internal

courtyard where key rooms spin-off in cardinal directions. The

great room, master bedroom, and large office all have access to

the outdoor air within the courtyard. This space features plenty

of comfy seating for dining, watching a game on the outdoor

television, or gathering in front of the wood-burning fireplace.

Lush landscaping is softly lit for an added dose of evening

ambience.

“With a customized approach, we were able to add depth and

character to the space after dark,“ says Matt Baker of Outdoor

Lighting Perspectives. “Being able to extend usability of the

outdoor living area into the evening, with subtle accent lighting,

was key.”

The home is designed to reference surrounding German

Village architectural details. From the exterior, the house looks

like there was an original home that later included a large addition.

In character with the surrounding community, much of

the exterior and interior walls are brick.

“To achieve the historic look, my husband Terry asked the

masonry contractor to construct sample walls of the limestone

and brick so we could approve of its historic character,” says

Michele. ➻

from the weather. 4 The back yard is the perfect place when

the couple wants to feel grass under their feet. 5 Lush landscaping

and soft lighting create an inviting scene in the courtyard. 6 The

great room is one of three access points to the courtyard. 7 A hornbeam

hedge adds softness to the courtyard surround.

Old becomes new

A unique trait of this home is the grand

scale use of salvaged, historic wood throughout.

Large timbers, taken from deconstructed

barns, frame the ceiling in the great room and

decorate the ceiling in the master bedroom.

Most compelling, “the salvaged floorboards

on the first floor come from an Ohio barn

that predates the Civil War,” says Michele. “We

wanted to become a part of preserving history

by using reclaimed wood.”

“I have traveled all over Ohio and have since

visited at least two thousand barns in search of

good, quality first-growth timber,” says Doug

Morgan of the Mount Vernon Barn Company,

who would supply the couple with lumber for

flooring, cabinetry, stair treads and more. “It

is our goal to eventually save at least 100 Ohio

barns, of which we have already salvaged 75.”

The company evolved out of Morgan’s hobby

and goal to build a second, family home in the

country. After twenty years of salvaging barns,

he decided at last to open his shop to customers

who have a similar vision.

The craftsmanship of the early Ohio settlers,

who worked the wood by hand from harvesting

to final construction, and the incredibly

high quality of this ‘first-growth’ wood is what

inspires Morgan’s team to save barns. “We

will deconstruct and transport the barns from

one location to the next,” he says. “Or we will

hold on to the material, clean and store it for

repurposing in other new build and renovation

projects.”

Morgan goes on to explain that the barns

in Ohio are unique amongst the United States

because of the superiority of the wood. “The

density of the wood and the straight lines of

the grain make the wood we find in preserved

Ohio barns two or three times better than

9_

10_

_ 11

wood we can purchase today.” ➻

8 Salvaged white oak was used for the stairway

treads, supported by Amish-built metal framework.

9 An antique wooden dough bowl finds a

new purpose in the half bath. 10 A multi-pendant

chandelier hangs above the staircase landing. 11 A

speakeasy style door is used to greet guests at the

home’s front entrance.

Local talent

Terry and Michele have enthusiastically supported a wide variety of

craftsmen for their home. “I met a ceramics artist at the Columbus

Arts Festival one year and asked him if he could create a sink basin

for us that would complement a native artisan mirror that I acquired

during my travels to Mexico,” says Michele.

The stairway is perhaps more of an artistic expression than an

object of function. The chunky wood treads are four inches thick

and sourced by Morgan’s salvaged white oak wood supply. Morgan

then coordinated metalworking craftsmanship from nearby Amish

workers to build the metal framework for the stairs. Metal artist

Mark Lagergren of Mark Metal Works was commissioned to

custom-create the range hood, the master bathroom shower, the

exercise room walls, customized bookshelves, and the framework for

the circa 1928 antique wooden dough bowl that Michele reinvented

into a sink for the half bath. ➻

The deceptively new, yet “old” home displays

many beautiful stories through its history of design

and construction. Contrasts between light and dark

materials, smooth and rough finishes, antiques

juxtaposed against modern elements, outdoor and

indoor spaces that blend together all make the

home an exciting place to dwell. It is not surprising

to hear Michele say, “We wake up every day, hear

the beautiful bells of St. Mary’s church nearby, and

think… ‘Wow, we get to live here!’”

imaginations run wild

Let your child's personality shine

with these creative kids' room designs

BY HILARY DANINHIRSCH

Like their adult counterparts, social media often shapes kids’ tastes and sense of style, but

children can be trendsetters in their own right. When it comes to their bedrooms, a sacred

space where they will spend a lot of their time, many children like to have a voice and a

hand in decorating choices. Even with a parent’s guidance, many choices are made based

on how the décor fits the individual child’s personality. ➻

housetrends.com 43

1


The buzzword in bedroom décor for

children is playful. Bright colors, whimsical

patterns, mix-and-match styles,

along with contrasting fabrics, textures

and textiles, are at the top of the list.

Alternatively, a neutral palette complemented

by pops of color is another way

to approach a kid’s bedroom design.

Some children like to choose themes

for their rooms, whether that be reflective

of a favorite hobby, sport, animal,

cartoon character or Disney princess.

“What is so special about décor now

is how personal and informal good

design can be. Every level of décor

aficionado has a voice and a reasonably

priced channel to work from to create

their unique space,” says Carol Miller,

PR and Product Marketing Manager for

York Wallcoverings. “Children’s spaces

today are an extension of family taste

and values, often moving from small

child through teen concepts in their

use. Adaptability and joyful sophistication

is key.”

Fortunately, today’s child has a myriad

of style options from wall treatments

to furniture to accessories.

1 Picturebook wallpaper from the Yuval Zommer collection for Villa Nova. 2 The Waverly Kids collection with robots from York

Wallcoverings. 3 100 Million Years Ago wallpaper border from York Wallcoverings. 4 Watercolor Giant Llama wall decal from York

Wallcoverings. 5 Cactus Growth Chart from Chasing Paper.

Imaginative wall treatments

Whether the choice is paint or wall

treatments, the goal in decorating a

child’s bedroom is to reflect the personality

of its occupant.

Rather than cover a whole wall in

wallpaper, a wallpaper border could do

the trick, like the 100 Million Years Ago

border depicting prehistoric creatures

from York Wallcoverings, sure to delight

many young dinosaur aficionados.

“Modern children’s décor focuses on

whimsy and imagination, with soft colors

and shapes that beckon wonder,”

Miller says.

To that end, York Wallcoverings also

carries a variety of removable wallpaper,

from its RoomMates collection, such

as the playful Doodle Scallop peel and

stick wallpaper and the lively Watercolor

Llama Giant wall decal.

The Cactus Growth Chart by Chasing

Paper is a peel and stick product that

growing children will love as they chart

their own development.

Daydreaming about faraway places is

a child’s birthright. Artist Christopher

Corr transports kids across an ocean

with his Teeny Santorini wall covering

from Villa Nova, featuring simple

sketches of a Mediterranean village,

or the busy Manhattan setting with

his New York City wall covering that

depicts taxis driving below the famed

skyline. ➻

Whimsical accessories

Inspired by a certain wicked witch, but designed for a princess, the pink Magical

Mirror by Circu indeed has a magic touch—on the outside it looks like a mirror,

but houses a television inside.

Villa Nova has an array of kids’ bedroom accessories sure to complement

many styles. The Amazon Rainforest, including the Lily Pad Rug River, the

flat-woven Tiny Turtles rug and the Amazon cushion featuring two wading

flamingos, was the inspiration for the Frann Preston-Gannon collection.

Another featured designer from Villa Nova is Yuval Zommer, whose designs

reflect friends from nature, such as the Ladybugs cushion, illustrating ladybugs

relaxing on leaves, and the matching hand-tufted Ladybugs rug.

The Christopher Corr collection from Villa Nova is bright and fanciful, like

its Sundance cushion featuring a collection of smiley-face sunshines and the

happy-go-lucky Sundance rug. ➻

Fantasy furniture

From beds to desks to chairs, kids’ bedroom furniture

should be fun as much as it is functional.

Most kids are wildly imaginative, so furniture that

sparks creativity is always popular.

Beds with a built-in loft or one that has a “tree

house” built over it, like the one by Pottery Barn

Kids, is fun for children, both for the activity of

climbing upward into a secret space and for the

encouragement of imagination. Similarly, Crate

& Kids, the kid-oriented Crate & Barrel line, has

a Tiny House twin bed, which captures the feeling

of living in your own house.

Circu’s Fantasy Air Balloon will have every

child dreaming about floating up, up and away,

while the Teepee Room, a children’s tent bed, can

accommodate built-in bookshelves.

This year, the hot seat for children’s chairs

includes animal themes, such as the oak and walnut

Bambi chair by Hygge Life, sculpted to look

like a reindeer, or the company’s eclectic elephant

chairs and table made from European beech wood.

Once in a while, a kid has to sit down and do

homework or make an art project. The Christopher

Corr New York desk, a Villa Nova product, with its

glass top and neon chairs, reflects the bright lights

of the Big Apple.

When playtime is over, toys need to be put

away, perhaps in Circu’s gold toy box, finished in

gold leaf, built to resemble a gold bar.

MIDCENTURY MODERN

A retro remodel shines in German Village

1 The homeowners wanted

a gathering space near the

kitchen, so this sitting area

replaced a dining room.

2 Midcentury furniture looks

right at home in a space that

used to be a sitting room.

3 The classic German Village

façade belies little of the interior’s

modern twists.

4 A major goal was to bring

additional light into the great

room. This was accomplished

with bookcase lighting and a

new wall of windows.

MOVING TO OHIO from Austin, and Los Angeles before that,

Vince Thompson and David Thomas desired a home with plenty of light and

the open feel they were accustomed to. When they bought a home built in

the 1880s in German Village, they knew it would take some doing to achieve

that, and to create the right atmosphere for their modern taste. F Being

new in town, Dave researched contractors on his own to find the right fit for

the job. “The one that stood out was Dave Fox,” he says. “I liked their style.

We wanted something more midcentury modern and I felt like they could

do it.” After meeting with design consultant Tom Eastwood of Dave Fox, the

homeowners were sold, “He came out with ideas we loved,” Dave says. ➻

housetrends greater columbus 59


5 Steel i-beams replace a

structural wall and add an

element of architectural

distinction.

6 Opening up the floor

plan gives the homeowners

and their guests considerably

more elbow room.

5

The kitchen is open

The kitchen remodel was the game changer for the first floor, transforming

a segregated layout into a bright, inviting space. Removal of

a midline wall converted a galley kitchen into an open and integrated

cooking and entertaining area. An eight-foot island now sits where the

wall used to be, with exposed steel i-beams providing the necessary support

overhead and making a modern statement across the white space.

The cabinets and drawers keep the kitchen light with modern edge.

Designer Andrea Conley explains, “Vince likes black cabinets, which

is sharp and on trend right now. So we mixed gloss white with matte

black cabinets to keep it light and bright.” This same modern color mix

carries to the island countertop of Cambria quartz. The waterfall edge

and wave-like design in the quartz is an eye-catcher, “It’s a focal point

of the room,” she adds.

“Mixed metals are really popular right now,” Andrea says, citing variations

across the kitchen hardware, including brushed brass on the cabinets,

a matte black sink faucet, stainless steel toe kicks, and the older

Italian brass light fixtures the homeowners acquired in Madrid.

60 housetrends.com


A smart switch-up

A room swap of the sitting and dining rooms brought the first floor layout into

further alignment with the homeowners’ lifestyle of interaction in and around

the kitchen. “We’re not big formal dining people,” explains Vince. “We always have

congregation near the kitchen.” The new sitting room off the kitchen is an open and

inviting conversation area adorned in midcentury modern style. “The scale of our

furniture is 1960s. It’s little, so we wanted this open feel,” explains David.

For the great room in the back of the house, gaining light in the space was the

main goal. Subtle yet impactful changes, such as changing the bookcase shelves

from wood to glass, and adding lighting inside the bookcases, made it happen.

These updates also bring modern sophistication to the room creating more visual

interest around the fireplace.

A modern makeover to the upstairs bath improved its look and use of the space.

“The bathroom needed some love,” says David. “The layout was choppy, it made

the space seem smaller than it actually was.” Removal of an oddly placed “cave-like”

shower and separate bathtub made way for a larger vanity and shower bathed in

natural light. ➻

A warm welcome

After spending four-and-a-half months living in their

garage carriage house, during the cold winter months,

David and Vince were ecstatic to return to their

home. What they moved back into was a breath of

fresh air, “It was like moving in for the first time, in a

completely different house.” As for working with the

team at Dave Fox, Vince says, “We’ve done our share

of remodels in other places we’ve lived, and we’ve

never had contractors foresee everything like they

did and just take care of it. They made this easy.”

BEST OF TWO WORLDS

A new urbanism community in Lewis Center

combines tradition and technology

BY LAURI GROSS | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

In southern Delaware County there is a community of Craftsman-styled homes with generous old-timey

front porches featuring wide, tapered columns and neighbors who wave to passersby. The feeling it evokes is

reminiscent of the charming Columbus neighborhoods where many of us grew up, such as German Village and

Clintonville. ✦ This new 1,200-acre development, called Evans Farm, adheres to the principals of new urbanism

and was the site of this summer’s Parade of Homes, sponsored by the Building Industry Association (BIA) of

Central Ohio. New urbanist communities incorporate walkable town centers, and a mix of single-family homes,

row houses and apartments over ground-level retail. ➻

housetrends greater columbus


Upon entering one home in particular, however, visitors

are immediately transported from a traditional

exterior to a cutting-edge interior with major wow factor.

Built by Bob Webb Homes, this model, which won

the Parade’s People’s Choice Award, was designed to give

possible homebuyers a better perspective on the construction,

design and technology involved. Scott Shively,

Chief Operating Officer for Bob Webb Homes, says, “You

can go behind the scenes to see the additional insulation

or plumbing. You can go to the basement to see how it’s

put together. We use it to get ideas flowing.”

The space is designed for flexibility. For instance, the

home “could easily be a six-bedroom,” says Shively. “The

way we decorated it, it is five bedrooms. One room is a

trophy room, which could be a second first-floor bedroom.”

Another space could be used as an apartment. “It

has a separate entry, and is over the garage,” says Shively

of this 1,200 square-foot area. “It could be for a boomerang

kid, guests visiting, and more,” he adds.

Beautiful built-ins

Nearly every room features built-in shelves, benches and

other storage solutions. Shively says, “Our master closet

is not a huge room but we make every inch of closet

space usable with a pull-down rod system. It’s like getting

double closets in one room.” ➻

1 The traditional craftsman-style exterior, gives little warning

of the interior’s high-tech modern luxury. 2 In the grand

room, colorful lighting above the Cambria Quartz Island, and

transom windows that look up into a second-floor open area,

add drama. 3 Glass walls slide out of the way to allow for

easy access from the modern eatery to the courtyard.

4 Showcasing a new trend, this Messy Kitchen allows everyone

to enjoy the meal and the open living areas while the

mess remains hidden. 5 Built-in white shelves conceal an

entry into the home’s “she-scape,” an inviting space where

the woman of the house can read or work or just be alone

while still being near the kids’ loft area.

The technology in the home allows for an additional

level of flexibility. “Control4 is the system that controls

the house,” says Shively. “It does everything: speakers,

security, outdoor lights, blinds, draperies. Everything

is controlled through your phone.” It also includes a

lighting system that reacts to natural light outdoors. “It

captures the essence of the natural outside light so in the

morning, if it’s a grey day, it will turn lights up inside,” he

adds. “If it’s bright outside, the lights will adjust to match

that. It can connect with music too, and lights will flash

with the beat.”

Wants and needs

A basement wine cellar in this model home holds 612

bottles in a custom-crafted bar area. “People say they

love it, but maybe they wouldn’t want one so big,”

adds Shively, who pointed out that this is another way

the model is great at inspiring ideas. Because, he says,

“People want what they want.”

6 A protected courtyard features a phantom screen

that raises and lowers with the touch of a button.

7 A lower level entertainment area features storage

for 612 bottles of wine.

Storage Solutions – Mirco Kitchen

Remodel by Dave Osmond Builders in partnership with Residential Design Solutions

This remodel was presented with a design challenge: create a fully functioning kitchen in the

lower level of the home that was seamless and invisible for entertaining guests.

Solution – create a free-standing mahogany cabinetry with hidden kitchen appliances and additional storage

that when closed, blends into the other elements of the room. Each cabinet holds a special feature including a

full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator, microwave, electric stovetop, sink with disposal and dishwasher.

Extending Your Entertainment Space

A Basement Transformation. Project by Keefer Contractors

Families are always expanding, and finding creative ways to increase family

gathering spaces in homes is a project seen by remodelers more and more

frequently. These homeowners described their ideal area as a place to simply

sit down and unwind with their family and grandchildren to enjoy holiday

celebrations, enjoy some exercise and a quiet comfortable workspace.

NACO0819.022


A study with light, natural wood textured walls was created to

provide the homeowners a place to escape in a good book.

Custom open-air shelves were

included in the kitchen instead

of upper cabinets to open the

room. Lighter design elements

such as the white subway tiles,

stainless steel appliances and

white dishware complement

the dark wood shelves and

give the kitchen dimension.

Natural Wood is Making a Comeback

Home décor trends in 2019 are returning to warm and comfortable styles last seen in the 1990s. As homeowners

plan to redecorate, remodel or build new, adding elements of natural wood is an easy way to make their homes

more inviting.

Close the door on bright and white! Even in more modern designed spaces, the look and feel of warm wood

tones are growing in popularity. There are many ways to incorporate wood into a home:

Interior doors: Barn-style doors are becoming a common way to add a rustic patina to a room and can be

customized in design and choice of wood.

Interior trim: If you are planning to remodel, you might consider bringing the beauty and style of natural wood

into play through new interior trim such as crown molding, baseboards or door casings.

NACO0819.028


Fireplace mantel: Adding a custom wood mantel

surrounding the fireplace is a great way to add

warmth without the fire.

Built-in bookcases:

Consider adding shelving or bookcases that can stretch from floor to ceiling or anywhere in between.

Country in the City

Remodel by Kitchen Kraft

Living on a beautiful acreage in Gahanna, these homeowners wanted to cohesively tie in the

natural aesthetic of their property into their kitchen remodel, while focusing on a design that

will last through the decades. To not take away from the beauty of the outdoors, no kitchen

cabinets were placed on the back wall. Instead, the deep blue island was designed to optimize

storage in the kitchen, as well as provide additional seating.

NACO0819.025


Not only did the homeowners want to focus on a long-lasting design, but they also wanted to configure the layout

to ease aging in the home. Before this remodel, the washer and dryer lived in the basement that was accessible by

stairs. Utilizing the now open space, the washer and dryer were moved into the kitchen and hidden by barn doors.

It’s all in the details for this home! From the clean, white subway tiles, to the industrial pendant lighting,

to the open shelf trinkets that blend together in a perfect formula to give this space its country style.

NACO0819.025


Shopping for lighting can feel like a daunting process with thousands of lighting fixtures on the market. Options

offering connected and smart home features, narrowing and refining your decision can feel overwhelming.

It doesn’t have to be that way - in fact, picking out the perfect lighting to complement any room should be a fun,

enjoyable experience. To help narrow and refine your search, here are some tips:

• Articulate your decor style.

• Take in samples of your cabinetry wood, flooring and paint colors while shopping for lighting.

• Identify if the light will be used for ambient purposes or decorative.
