Experiencဠ

Loveland ranch-style home

designed for couple with a clear vision

BY AMY HOWELL HIRT

Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

There comes a point in life when you know what you want and don’t want,

what’s a necessity and what you could do without. Such was the case when

Steve and Margery Schnicke sat down—nearly every morning for three

months—to design their new home.


2 3

Steve, a builder, has constructed 15

versions of this home over the years,

not to mention hundreds of others.

“With his experience, he had great

ideas on architectural features and the

structure of the home,” says interior

designer Ann Hoffman of Hoffman &

Albers Interiors, who helped the couple

create a cohesive design.

While Steve gives a shrug when

asked about his aesthetic leanings, his

wife has been working with Hoffman

for over 20 years, and had a clear vision

of the fresh-yet-traditional style she

was seeking.

Their home, which was completed

less than a year ago, is an emblem

of their new life together. They were

married on the property in 2016 with

Steve’s four daughters and Margery’s

three sons by their sides.

Yours, mine and ours

Every room unites their influences—

past and present. In the kitchen, the

size of the massive island and the

champagne bronze finish on the faucet

were Steve’s ideas, while lanterns over

the island are the same lighting that

Margery had in her previous home.

The subdued marble backsplash is a

complement to zig-zag marble tile in

the wet bar around the corner, which

the couple saw installed as powderroom

flooring in one of Steve’s projects.

While the couple selected these

finishes on their own, they needed a

little help piecing together what each

of them brought to the home’s design.

“Ann’s challenge was how to blend

our (existing) furniture pieces with our

new life,” Margery says.

Marrying old and new, Hoffman

based the home’s palette on a blueand-white

rug, with touches of red,

from Margery’s previous home, and a

painting above the fireplace which commemorates

a backyard bonfire on the

couple’s wedding day. A new pale-red

sofa and deep-cobalt leather recliner

join Margery’s yellow sofa in the great

room, picking up hues from the painting

and creating a “happy, sunny room,”

Hoffman says.

For the kitchen island, Hoffman

found stools with arching lines that

mimic those on the backs of the dining

room chairs, which Margery inherited

from her grandparents. To fill in the

blanks elsewhere, Hoffman drew from

the couple’s existing stock—sometimes

quite literally pulling pieces from a

lower-level storage room.

“A lot of times it’s not until you get

in your home and have everything in

place and start living with it that you

see a need for something. We would go

to a storage area in the basement and

it was amazing how many pieces we

could find to refresh a space,” Hoffman

says. ➻

2 In a wide hallway off the kitchen, the

wet bar, which the couple expanded

from 4 feet to 7.5, houses the microwave

drawer, a fridge and icemaker.

3 Margery sewed all the home’s curtains

herself with help from Hoffman in

choosing the fabrics.

4 A champagne bronze kitchen

faucet adds an elegant touch

to the marble of the kitchen

island’s countertop.

5

Back in the great room, benches that

previously functioned as cocktail ottomans

were reupholstered for additional

seating. And a desk and area rug perfectly

sized for the foyer actually came

from the living room in Margery’s previous

home.

6

Easy living

But many of the couple’s decisions—

and customizations to the house

plan—rested more on function than

aesthetics. They thought long and hard

about how they would live in each

space, and what would make it feel

comfortable and easy.

“I always tell people, ‘Go with your

gut,’” Steve says of his clients, and the

couple followed that advice.

With a household of just two and an

additional laundry room on the lower

level, a wall separating the laundry

from the master closet was simply an

inconvenience. So they removed it and

created an easy-in, easy-out space com-

28 housetrends.com


plete with shelving and baskets for sorting laundry, a table

for folding and a built-in bench for slipping shoes on and off.

Margery, an avid cook, likewise expanded the plan’s simple

hall pantry into a “fancy pantry,” as Steve calls it, to keep her

dozens of cookbooks readily available. Other smartly considered

details, like a toaster housed in an outlet-equipped

drawer, keep daily essentials fully accessible yet fully concealed.

In fact, one of Margery’s favorite features in the house

is one you can’t see: a custom-built paper towel holder tucked

into a kitchen wall cabinet. ➻

7

5 In the master bedroom, the couple raised

the window height to accommodate a

Queen Anne-style sofa that originally

belonged to the family of Margery’s late

husband.

6 The dryer is ventless, so there’s no worries

over dust accumulating on the clothes

in the couple’s spacious closet.

7 An elegant pantry stands opposite the wet

bar. “It was supposed to be a food pantry

and it became her fancy pantry,” Steve

says.

8 The painting over the fireplace, by local

artist Alicia Cummings, was a present

from Margery to Steve for their first

anniversary.

Chic conveniences pair with comfortable

spaces, exemplifying the relaxed

lifestyle the Schnickes are creating

together, season by season. Just off

the great room, there’s a cozy outdoor

living room with a fireplace inspired

by a lodge the couple visited in the

Adirondacks.

“We’re really looking forward to

fall and watching football out here,”

Margery says of the outdoor space.

“People ask why we didn’t downsize,”

she adds. “But we did – going from two

houses to one. We like to think we

‘right-sized.’”

11

9 Massive blocks of Indiana limestone that

make up the outdoor fireplace were

inspired by a lodge the couple visited in

the Adirondacks. Steve wanted “a massive,

masculine-looking fireplace.”

10 The couple moved into their new home last

December and enjoyed plenty of evenings

on the outdoor patio during their first summer

in the home.

11 When they began planning their empty

nester abode, Steve shared this house

plan—which has always been a favorite of

his—and Margery fell in love with it, too.

Raid the

Mini-Bar

Sit back, relax, and

enjoy a drink without

feeling guilty

BY SYDNE SANTO

The mini-bar has developed a bad

reputation over the years. Typically

found in hotel rooms, it lures you

in with the promise of refreshing

cocktails and fun little snacks, only

to sock you with an outlandish bill

when you check out. But homeowners

have caught on to the

charade by incorporating mini-bars

into their own spaces. Check out

some of our favorite home minibars—they’re

fully stocked and

won’t break the bank. ➻

Farmhouse Fresh

From white fireclay to stainless steel, farmhouse sinks are

enjoying a renewed popularity with a larger range of materials

and more options than ever before.

BY GINA MILLER

housetrends.com 51


Farmhouse sinks have gained in popularity over the past

few years thanks to stars like Chip and Joanna Gaines, but

really they’re nothing new. These sinks come from a time

when water had to be carried into the house from outside.

The large, deep sink held water fetched from nearby wells.

Today, the farmhouse sink is a focal point for the kitchen, but

it’s more than just a pretty kitchen feature.

There are many appealing qualities of an authentic farmhouse

sink. They’re often much deeper and wider than a traditional

sink basin, making them ideal for homes without a

dishwasher. The exposed, protruding front adds an extra dose

of style to your kitchen. And with farmhouse sinks coming in

so many fun materials including porcelain, enameled cast iron,

stainless steel, copper and marble, you are able to customize

your home to fit your style and needs.

The meteoric rise of geodes

BY CHRISTINA KLEINER

I remember learning about geodes in grade school science class. I loved the

amethyst color of the crystals and found it hard to believe that a seemingly unattractive

rock could hide something so beautiful. I even recall my mom having an

amethyst geode on a plant shelf in our living room. So, imagine my surprise when

I started seeing geodes and agate pop up in interior design. ➻

Bachelor

leaves beige behind

in Mt. Adams and goes

bold in Hyde Park

70 housetrends.com


BY SARAH J. DILLS | Photos by Connie Kimsey

John Morelock loves living in Hyde Park. “It is the perfect location,”

he says of his contemporary condo nestled in the historic neighborhood

at the heart of Cincinnati. “I’m a block off the square,

I can walk to Rookwood, or I can be in OTR in ten minutes.” ➻


The location was so perfect, in fact, that John bought his

new home pre-construction. “They showed me a floor plan

and I was sold,” he recalls. So he made plans to pack up his

life in Mt. Adams and move.

But as construction was underway in Hyde Park, John

realized his former Mt. Adams furnishings wouldn’t transition

aesthetically to his new home. He also realized he didn’t

have a clear vision for the interior design of the space.

A nice couch

“I really didn’t have a clue,” John admits about making

décor decisions. So he asked Julie Greiwe, with Greiwe

Development, the firm that was developing the condominium

complex 2770 Observatory. “She said she had just the

guy for me.”

Randy Basselman is a senior designer with Greiwe

Interiors and specializes in creating comfortably chic spaces,

which was of upmost importance to John.

“I told Randy I wanted a nice couch and a remote that

works,” John says with a laugh. “And he delivered. It’s a

great place to watch football.”

The comfy, Bernhardt sofa is nestled in the open-concept

living room, dining room and kitchen. The space appears

larger than it actually is thanks to eleven-foot ceilings

enjoyed by homeowners on the first floor.

The gourmet kitchen has one of the largest islands in the

building providing John with plenty of space for entertaining.

While John does enjoy the room, he admits he eats out

more than he cooks. The kitchen was designed to be simple

and understated. “The Wood-Mode cabinetry was chosen

to blend seamlessly with the trim work in the rest of the

space,” Basselman says.

White, custom double crown molding and plantation

shutters give the space a traditional nod to Hyde Park’s history;

while custom, mid-century-inspired built-ins play nicely

with the building’s modern architecture. Randy designed

the bar in the dining room and the cabinets flanking the

fireplace. The pieces were then fabricated and installed by

Miller and Slay. “I wanted something that would be current,

but not too modern,” Randy describes.

John gave Randy carte blanche while

selecting furnishings, fabrics, wall

treatments and artwork. The latter

became a focal point in John’s home.

3

Art gallery entrance

The front door of John’s home opens

into a spacious foyer and then a hallway

leads guests to the main living area

on the right and bedrooms on the left.

Randy wanted to focus on treating the

foyer and entry hall as two separate

spaces and focal points, as this would

be visitors’ first glimpse of the home.

The foyer features a bold wall treatment

by Harlequin paired with a sleek

chest of drawers. Decorative plates, featuring

a pattern similar to that of the

wall treatment, are displayed on either

side of a more traditional mirror. ➻

Focal fabric

Basselman advises homeowners on where to invest

their design budget. He recommends quality upholstery,

seating and furniture. Then you can fill in with fabrics,

throw pillows and accent pieces that can interchange

with trends and tastes. This design trick is showcased

in the master bedroom where neutral, staple furniture

pieces are paired with bold drapery, throw pillows and

art.

“I showed John two options for the drapery and

he liked the bold pattern,” Basselman explains of the

Christian Lacroix window treatments.

Respite retreat

John admits he’s not home much. But when he is home

he couldn’t be more pleased with the way the design

and construction of this space turned out; although he

sometimes wishes he’d made his office a tad smaller and

his family room a little larger since he enjoys relaxing

on his comfortable couch and watching football with his

remote that works…most of the time.

Walls that talk

Because almost everything in the home was new to the

space, it was important to Basselman that he mixed pieces

to create the ambiance of a collection. The plates are an

example of something that looks like it could have been in

John’s family for years. Basselman admits the plates are

not originals or overly expensive. Instead, they are what he

refers to as a designer find. Basselman loves working with

clients to maintain their budget by mixing one-of-a-kind

pieces with less expensive finds.

This can be seen in the entry hall. Basselman wanted to

create a gallery feeling in the long, narrow space. “We needed

some big pieces,” he explains. “I tried to find pieces that

looked like John’s had them for twenty years.”

Two paintings of Cincinnati by local artist W. Michael

Meyer pay homage to the city John has called home for thirty

years; the city where he started his business and raised

his four sons, who now all work in his company. A contemporary

chaise rests under one of the paintings. Positioned at

the end of the hall, and reflected in the entry mirror, a large,

bold contemporary piece draws the eye into the home. This

is another designer find that Basselman had to convince

John needed to be in the space. “I’m not usually drawn to

contemporary art,” John explains. “But it’s my favorite piece;

so I‘m glad Randy was persistent that it needed to be here.”

Luxury vinyl tile provides

an exciting alternative

to traditional flooring

l

BY SYDNE SANTO

When it comes to building your perfect home, there

isn’t a detail you should overlook. This includes

your flooring – as the sole piece of your home that

receives the most use – it’s important to find the

perfect flooring to fit the needs of you and your

family. Because of the increased demand for quality

flooring, luxury vinyl tile is skyrocketing to become a

staple in the flooring industry. ➻

housetrends greater cincinnati 83

What is luxury vinyl tile?

Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, is often mistaken

for common types of flooring like laminate

or even standard vinyl tile. However, LVT

differs from its popular predecessors by

incorporating a protective layer at the top

of its design, known as a wear layer, to protect

from scuffs and stains associated with

frequent use. Because of this, LVT requires

drastically less maintenance than that of its

counterparts.

Further, because of heightened 3D printing

capabilities, LVT can mimic both the

designs and textures of hardwood and natural

stone flooring for nearly a fraction of the

cost, allowing you to build the floor of your

dreams without breaking the bank. ➻

5

How is it made?

LVT is made of several layers that are fused

together under pressure and heat. These layers

include a vinyl backing, a resilient core, an image

layer (this layer contains your chosen design) and

a wear layer.

While it’s important to choose a flooring design

that represents both you and your home, the wear

layer is one of the most important pieces in maintaining

the quality of your LVT because it serves as

a protective layer between heavy traffic and your

flooring design.

Because of the vast amount of flooring options

available, it’s important to research and explore

several different options before landing on the

one that’s perfect for you. But, by choosing luxury

vinyl tile, you’re sure to find a design and style you

love that will support your lifestyle for many years

to come.

TIME

IS

OF

THE

Hobby garden grows to full-time

passion for Southern Ohio homeowner

BY SARAH J. DILLS | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

Time is very important to Mary Higgins. “I like to be on time,” she

explains of getting her garden going each spring. “I have time frames

for everything. Every daylight moment in spring is important.” ✦

Mary’s meticulous time structure may expose the Type-A side of her

personality, but it allows her to be completely creative and artistic in

her home garden—which is a living work of art. ✦ She spends 35-40

hours a week in the garden at her home, which does not include the

time she spends working in other gardens. ➻

ESSENCE

housetrends greater cincinnati 95

Mary’s love of gardening began

when she was growing up on a farm

in Centerville as one of seven children.

“My mother had gardens, and I

was always outside planting seeds with

her,” Mary remembers fondly. “I would

raid the neighbors’ daffodils to make

a bouquet for my mother. I just loved

flowers.”

When Mary’s parents passed away

about 10 years ago, the farm became

part of the Centerville-Washington

Township Park District. Their historic

house, now called the Smith House,

as well as a garden that Mary and her

siblings planted in memory of their

parents, continue to thrive today.

“People often comment on how

much time I must spend in my gardens,”

Mary says. “But I do have a life

outside of the garden. People waste so

much time in our society today. I go out

first thing in the morning while most

people are still in bed, and then I go out

after dinner. It’s about prioritizing what

is important to you.”

Dealing with Mother Nature

“This was probably one of the coldest Aprils on record,” Mary says of the

stressful weather she’s been trying to work around this year. “Our springs

seem to be getting shorter, leaving less time to prepare gardens for the

season.”

“Last year was kind of horrendous too because we had an early spring,

but then we had a freeze in May. Luckily, I have double eves on my house

that somewhat protect the plants, but the Japanese maples still got frostbitten.”

Mary explains that once she starts working in her flowerbeds, it is a

domino effect. She cleans out the beds, cuts plants back, separates perennials,

and then she has her annuals coming right behind.

“It’s always crazy for me, because I have thousands of annuals that are

put in here each year. I have to get those early, for supply and demand, so

the weather is always challenging. If my annuals are delivered before the

last frost date, I have to try to keep them protected.”

Luckily, Mary added a sunroom to her home 35 years ago to collect

plants. “I was very interested in tropicals and container gardening,” Mary

says. “It was hard because there wasn’t a whole lot available, but now

everything has caught up to what I’ve been doing for years.” ➻

1 The evergreen area on the west side of the house features a Montgomery

Blue Spruce on a standard and a Weeping Norway Spruce tucked behind a

container of geraniums and two hedges of boxwoods. Beds of begonias add an

extra pop of color. 2 Inspirational and quirky statuary can be found scattered

throughout the gardens. 3 The beautiful purple hue of the Tall Phlox creates

a colorful focal point. 4 An urn planter next to the front porch is overflowing

with coleus, caladium, Rex begonia and variegated English ivy. Nearby, a small

statue is tucked under a Butterfly Japanese maple adorned with creeping Jenny

ground cover. 5 The centerpiece of the front yard is the homeowner’s so called

“donut hole”—a stone base surrounding begonias, gold barberry and boxwoods.

The two upper levels include petunias, million bells, dipladenia, coleus

and a tropical lantana standard tree perched at the top.

Self-taught expert

It can be intimidating talking to Mary

about gardening. She’s an expert. Her

garden is nationally recognized. Large

companies rent the space for advertising

photo shoots and commercials. Her

garden is award winning and toured by

visitors who roll down her residential

street by the busload every summer.

However, Mary wants people to know

that she started like everybody else—

when she moved into her home, with

her husband Michael, in 1978.

“There was nothing here. I started

from zero and more-or-less taught

myself,” Mary remembers. “I read a lot,

watched garden programs on TV, and

did projects by trial and error.

“Believe me, I had my ups and downs

with some of the plants when I first

started. But a lot of people, they get discouraged

and give up,” Mary says. “The

biggest reward for me is when people

tell me my gardens have inspired them

to create gardens of their own.”

Mary began gardening her half-acre

lot when she decided to stay at home

to raise her two sons, Ryan and Kevin.

At first she did one project a year,

mostly around the house. She would

then have a fence installed, or an arbor

or deck built—and then design flowerbeds

around the structures. The family’s

property is perfectly situated along

a park, so it seems much larger. “The

park is a beautiful backdrop to the garden,”

Mary says. “If there were houses

back there, it wouldn’t look the same

at all.” ➻

including Black-Eyed Susan, Dragon Wing

Begonia, hosta and hydrangea surround

Family affair

Michael didn’t necessarily see Mary’s vision for the garden when they first

moved into the home. “But now he appreciates it as much as I do, especially

when he sees how much everyone else enjoys it,” she says.

The couple recently had to kill off a large section of grass in their back

yard because it became infested with Poa Annua Grass. Poa Grass, often

referred to as annual bluegrass, is very difficult to control. “Poa Grass dies

out when it is hot, which leaves dead patches in your grass,” Mary explains.

“I always say, growing flowers is easy for me…but growing good grass gets

tricky.”

Through all of the ups and downs of building and growing and regrowing

this garden, Mary says Michael has stayed by her side. Through

watching and helping Mary over the years, her two sons have developed

green thumbs themselves. “My oldest son, Ryan, has a very beautiful garden

in Centerville,” Mary says. “It’s taught them so much about enjoying a

garden and working in it – on the weekends and at night. I personally think

all children should learn more about gardening.”

And while Mary’s summer garden has always meant the family couldn’t

go on vacation from spring through summer, she wouldn’t trade it for

anything. “I did every bit of this garden myself, so it is very important to

me that we stay in this house. We also love the lot and the surrounding

neighborhood,” Mary explains. “Even when we wanted more space, we

added an addition instead of moving.”

The Higgins’ garden, like the fifth member of this nuclear family, has a

heartbeat that can be felt by the thousands of people who have walked its

paths and explored its nooks and crannies for the last 31 years.

There’s something

appealing about colorful

dishes, and this is an

eye-catching one.

Perfect for fall and

winter, this delightful

medley will warm you

through and through.

It’s easy to make,

good for you, and

will satisfy your

craving for comfort

food. Orange and

purple carrots and

parsnips are highly

nutritious foods

with many health

benefits so make sure

to add this to your

cooking repertoire.

Enjoy!


HONEY GLAZED CARROTS AND PARSNIPS

2 tablespoons butter

3 medium orange carrots, cut into ¼-inch coins

1 medium purple carrot, cut into ¼-inch coins

3 medium parsnips, cut into ¼-inch coins

¾ cup chicken broth

5 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

1 teaspoon paprika

Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add carrots and parsnips and cook while stirring for

about 3 minutes. Add chicken broth and 3 tablespoons

of the honey and stir to combine. Turn the heat to medium,

cover and cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove lid and season

with parsley, paprika, salt and pepper. Turn heat to medium-high

and cook while stirring until carrots and parsnips are tender

and nicely glazed with honey sauce, about 5 more minutes.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons of honey, stir and

remove from heat. Serves 4-6
