Dayton couple incorporates their travel

mementos into their outdoor living space

BY SARAH J. DILLS


housetrends greater miami valley 19

“YEARS AGO, I used to pick up ornaments when I

traveled. Now I seem to pick up landscaping ideas,”

Angela Dunaway admits with a laugh when discussing

her newly renovated back yard. “But I love having different

design influences. It makes me feel like I’m on

vacation all the time.” F And she’s right. A trip to Italy

can be tasted when Angela prepares pasta for her large

family dinners around their repurposed, barn-wood

table. Children’s voices telling ghost stories on family

camping trips can be heard floating up from the smoke

of the wood-burning fire pit. And the Famous Oysters

‘Turtlefeller’ from The Turtle Club in Naples, Florida

can be smelled as you walk by the fire torches surrounding

the pool. F Angela and Dan Dunaway love

to travel. And with the help of Ben Bayer, a partner

with The Site Group, they’ve brought a piece of their

travels home with them to their back yard.

Deeply rooted

The Dunaways, life-long Daytonians, met playing opposite each other in the

Centerville High School production of Oliver. The two were married before starting

medical and law school, respectively. Their family grew to include four sons, so the

couple moved to their current home—situated on four acres—to give their boys

plenty of room to roam and explore.

That was 18 years ago. And as the boys grew so did the scope of their yard. “The

space looked great until Hurricane Ike came through and took down about 50

trees,” Angela says of the 2008 storm. “Then it looked really sparse, so we started

thinking of ways we could spruce it up.”

The couple originally worked with Bayer and The Site Group when they had

some outdoor lighting installed, so they contacted the trusted contractor and began

working on a project that included expanding their deck, installing a gas fire pit and

some plantings, and creating a gravel walking trail.

“I love to walk. But there are not a lot of areas to walk close to our house, so Ben

built a walking trail for me. Three times around is a mile. The dogs and I love it,”

Angela says of her frequent walks with her two golden retrievers.

Angela adds that The Site Group comes and refurbishes the gravel on her path as

part of their maintenance program offered to clients. “We call it the Site Gardener,”

Bayer describes. “We visit the property once a month to weed, prune, and check

the walkway.” ➻

was added after the homeowners

expanded their deck and outdoor

kitchen area. 3 The gas fire torches

scattered around the pool were

inspired by the homeowners’ family

trips to The Turtle Club in Naples,

Florida. 4 A soothing rock waterfall,

surrounded by green shrubs and

hostas, is situated under the trees,

just beyond the gas fire pit and pool.

Longing for water

Angela and Dan both grew up with pools, and Dan wanted

one in their own yard. Angela, however, had a major roadblock

– three roadblocks to be exact.

“Where the pool sits now, there used to be three beautiful

maple trees that turned the most amazing colors during the

fall,” she describes. “Everyone that knows me knows I love

fall. I would never cut those trees down, even though my husband

wanted a pool. A year-and-a-half before we installed our

pool, those trees all died – one right after the other. I teased

him about doing something to them… but it was really just a

sign that it was time to put in the pool.”

The couple contacted Bayer once again and they began

planning to completely overhaul their outdoor space. “I had

been teasing them about installing a pool in their old playground

area,” Bayer says. “So I was excited to redo the project

we’d done for them eight years ago.”

The Site Group partnered with Buckeye Pools to build the

family a pool complete with a sun shelf, LED lighting, and

fire and water features. “The Dunaways are very active and

athletic, so we made sure this was a sport-friendly pool with

anchors for basketball hoops and a volleyball net,” Bayer says.

The entire outdoor renovation started in August and was

completed before Thanksgiving. “That year was so warm that

after the pool was complete, they swam while we were working

on the rest of the project,” Bayer remembers.

5 The back yard includes multiple seating and

entertaining areas adorned with cozy furniture

in light cream and blue hues. 6 Two fire bowls

with water features, which are plumbed into the

pool pump, sit atop massive stone columns next

to the pool. 7 After three large maple trees

died, the homeowners installed a swimming

pool in the back yard, complete with a sun shelf,

LED lighting, and fire and water features.

Little Italy

“I love to cook, so I am always trying

different recipes,” Angela says. “I love

to grill. In the fall I love to do a big

pasta dish. Our wood table caters to an

Italian meal.”

Angela is referring to the massive

dining table they had Village Salvage

construct for them out of salvaged barn

wood. “I have such a large family and

love to entertain, so I wanted a huge

table. That’s where we got the idea for

the pergola – it is reminiscent of a trip

we took to Italy.”

Angela has an outdoor kitchen area

right off the deck where she can prep

for outdoor meals. She then simply

walks down the steps, across the

expanded fire pit patio and through the

gate, constructed by Hess Fencing, into

the pool surround where her dining

area is located. The pergola is showered

with color from hanging baskets and

massive annual containers. ➻

“We have a nursery that works with us to maintain our clients’ planters yearround,”

Bayer explains. “We come out and get the containers at Thanksgiving, and

empty them for winter storage at the nursery. Around February the planters are

filled with plugs, which means they are bloomed and ready for delivery around

Mother’s Day. It’s a nice Mother’s Day gift.”

This is the first year the Dunaways have taken advantage of the service. “I cannot

wait until Mother’s Day when they bring them back,” Angela says.

10

Camping trip

Dan spent a lot of time camping with

his family growing-up. While Dan and

Angela enjoyed the maintenance-free

warmth of their gas fire pit right off

their deck, the family missed the rusticfeel

of a natural fire. “We do love sitting

by a wood-burning fire,” Angela says of

their decision to create a natural fire pit

farther back in the yard surrounded by

trees. “It’s so cozy in the fall.”

“This fire pit not only gives them the

camping-feel, it gives them a place to

burn the brush they collect off all their

trees,” Bayer adds.

The couple had a tree fall, so Bayer

and his team cut it up and used the

stumps as the bases of the benches.

The seats are constructed of repurposed

barn beams, and the fire pit is

a Chilton Flagstone, which gives it a

unique color. Bayer hollowed out parts

of the tree to create one-of-a-kind

path lighting leading guests to the

cozy spot. ➻

8 The Site Group expanded the fire pit surround they’d originally constructed in 2010 when the deck was expanded. 9 A tree that fell on

the property was cut up and the stumps were used as the bases of the benches surrounding this wood-burning fire pit. 10 The outdoor

living area consists of multiple spaces, including this gas fire pit, situated on four private acres.

Let it flow

“My biggest worry was that it wouldn’t all flow together

because of all the different looks,” Angela says. “But as a

whole, it doesn’t seem like it’s designed in separate pieces. It

just flows so well, and we really use each space equally.”

And while Angela admits that her older three boys might

be a little confused about why their parents waited until

they moved away to install a pool, she says her son at the

University of Dayton enjoyed bringing his friends home last

summer. “On my birthday, all my boys were in town, and we

had a blast by the pool. I jokingly asked, ‘What did we used to

do on my birthday?’”

Angela loves her new back yard, even during the snowcovered

winter months. “The dogs and I love going out on

the walking trail in the winter,” she explains. “It is so peaceful

out there when everything is covered in snow. I love that I can

enjoy it year-round.”

Bayer could not be happier to see his clients enjoying their

outdoor oasis. “Creating spaces outside for people to relax

and spend time together as a family, that is why I got into this

business,” he explains.

And as much as Angela loves her hometown, she admits

that the views make her feel like she’s on a constant vacation.

“It’s nice, every now and then, to get away…without having

to leave home.”

walls, creates a cozy atmosphere in this sitting room. Photo by Joe Traina


Oh my goodness, I love shiplap! To me, it says

seaside retreat or rural farmhouse, and whether

it’s in its natural rustic state, stained or painted,

shiplap can make a beautiful statement in any

home.

Emerging trend

I was first introduced to it on my favorite HGTV show,

Fixer Upper. Chip and Joanna Gaines are a hoot to

watch. They take these old, neglected homes and turn

them into show houses—and like everyone else, I am

heartbroken that the show is coming to an end. But

when Joanna comes across shiplap, hidden behind

some awful ’70s paneling, she goes crazy! She has

made this wood plank a décor trend and may be the

only person who loves shiplap more than I do.

What is it?

So, what exactly is shiplap? It’s rough sawn pine wood

boards, often used in barns or historic homes for

insulation. Others argue that it’s used on old house

exteriors for framing, just beneath the siding or in

the construction of barns, sheds, and outbuildings.

Shiplap has rabbets, recess or groove cuts on each side,

which allows the boards to overlap and form a tight

seal. So it gives excellent weather protection, allows

for movement, and is perfect for outdoor use. To take

things a step further, some say that this material actually

comes from containers that were once used to ship

cargo, so it’s common in old homes that were built

along the railway.

Since shiplap can be found underneath drywall

in older houses it can be used as décor or an accent

wall. White wash adds brightness without covering up

the wood grain, giving it a Cape Cod or coastal vibe.

Stained shiplap can bring a warm richness to a room,

while leaving it au naturel gives it a more rustic, rural

feel. Shiplap can also be repurposed and used in new

construction in an effort to pay tribute to the historic

past of old houses.

With so many ways to incorporate shiplap into

your home, however you choose to do it, you can’t go

wrong.

about

COLOR

These are the colors everyone is talking about this year

BY CHRISTINA KLEINER

As 2018 gets underway, it’s time to take a closer look at the colors that will define

the year. Fresh pops of green, warm neutrals and shades of gray dominated

2017. But this year, we’re seeing an explosion of color, including rich

jewel tones, spicy reds and bold blacks. Here’s some inspiration

for those of you ready to take the plunge. ➻

Caliente paint by Benjamin Moore

Fiery red

Talk about hot, hot, hot! Caliente,

this year’s top color pick from

Benjamin Moore, is a sizzling red

that gets your heart racing. This

charismatic shade can help energize

a contemporary dining area or

add spirited personality to a cozy

bedroom. It’s also the perfect shade

for an accent wall—either indoors

or outdoors. ➻

Punch of purple

The color experts at Pantone

always keep us on our toes

by thinking outside the

color wheel—and this year

is no exception. Ultra Violet,

Pantone’s 2018 Color of the

Year, is the epitome of rich,

luxurious color. This complex

purple with a hint of blue can

make a statement in any space,

whether it’s a contemporary

kitchen or a modern downtown

loft.

Live in the moment

This soothing blue-green hue’s nod to nature is what led Behr to select

In The Moment as its 2018 Color of the Year. The mixture of blue, gray

and green makes us think of a cozy cottage in the country. But In The

Moment also serves as the perfect backdrop for fans of mid-century modern

design. This versatile neutral works in just about any space—from a

mod dining room or a farmhouse kitchen to a serene guest bedroom or

an inviting front porch. ➻

Deep Onyx paint by Glidden


Black Magic paint by Olympic

Black is back

If you are looking to make a statement, then black is your color. In fact, most

of the home and garden industry, including three paint manufacturers, are

betting that black is this year’s new neutral. Glidden selected Deep Onyx as its

top choice, while Olympic chose the timeless look of Black Magic. Both shades

would look great as accent walls—think fireplace surrounds or dining rooms.

But if you just want to dip your toes into the black pool, consider using the

dark hue as an alternative to white paint on doors, trim and cabinetry.

Black Flame is PPG’s take on this bold neutral. Classic black mixed with

a hint of dark indigo, this beautiful color has the ability to complement the

tailored look of traditional décor or create the perfect backdrop for a modern

design aesthetic. ➻

A green-blue mystery

Portraying a sense of adventure, Sherwin-Williams chose to

walk on the wild side by selecting Oceanside as its 2018 Color

of the Year. This complex green-blue hue responds to changes

in light, which gives it beautiful dimension and versatility.

Oceanside blends well with a variety of colors—from bright

pink and dark navy blue to crisp apple green and juicy orange.

Use it to liven up a welcoming dining area or boost creativity

and thought in a home office.

SENSATIONAL

SHOWSTOPPERS

An editor’s favorite finds from

a pair of mega home shows

BY MIKE GENNARIA

While 2018 marked the third straight year I attended

Design & Construction Week, the shows that combine

to make up the event—the Kitchen & Bath Industry

Show (KBIS) and the International Builders Show

(IBS)—once again did not disappoint. F I saw brand

new products and celebrity presenters from the largest

manufacturers in the world, as well as items I had

never seen before from smaller companies trying to

make a name for themselves in the crowded home

and garden space. F What follows is a list of some

of the products that grabbed my attention during my

visit to the Orange County Convention Center in

Orlando for the industry’s largest annual showcase.

SMEG

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily is my Love collection

SMEG, the Italian maker of luxury appliances, made the

United States debut of their Sicily is my Love collection at the

show. This collection, which includes toasters, blenders, mixers

and more, is a result of SMEG’s collaboration with Dolce &

Gabbana. The hand-painted items have beautiful bright colors

while pointing to the companies’ shared Italian heritage.

Also on display was one of the 100 SMEG x Dolce & Gabbana

refrigerators created during this same collaboration. Some

of these one-of-a-kind refrigerators are available in the U.S.

through Neiman Marcus for $50,000. ➻

Designed and built in Germany, Kesseböhmer products

offer a variety of sleek and functional kitchen

storage solutions. The one, in particular, that caught

my eye at the show was the iMove. A recent addition

to the Kesseböhmer line, the iMove is a shelving

system for wall cabinets with a handle that allows

the user to pull the shelves down and toward them

– making reaching everything in the cabinet easy.

“Taking accessibility to the next level, the iMove is

the intelligent pull-down system for wall cabinets,”

according to Kesseböhmer. “Never having to get

a stool or chair to reach a top shelf is a dream for

many, and can finally become a reality.”

MONOGRAM

Monogram Island

The latest product from Monogram, GE’s

luxury appliance line, still is a work in

progress, but I was among a small group

of designers and media members who

got a sneak peek. The Monogram Island,

which has a 94-inch-by-43-inch profile,

will take the place of a standard kitchen

island and offer an array of possibilities.


FIRE PIT ART

Third Rock © Globe

of The Earth fire pit

If you want to add a show-stopping piece to

your outdoor space, take a look at this.

Based in Lebanon, Tennessee, the staff at

Fire Pit Art handcrafts the amazing Third

Rock© using ¼-inch mild carbon steel. They

cut out the continents and leave the bodies of

water, allowing the fire to shine through the

openings in the sphere.

This fire pit typically is 36 inches in diameter,

40 inches high and weighs in at a solid 275

pounds. However, if you need to go bigger, Fire

Pit Art can do that, too.

It has a glass-ceramic surface complete with five induction cooking elements,

digital touch controls, a warming zone, pan presence sensors that

heat to the size of the cookware and shut off when none is present and a

wireless charging zone with Qi inductive technology for recharging mobile

devices. An optional wireless cooking probe also will be available.

The goal is to create a place where the whole family can gather, whether

that be to cook, do homework, recharge those devices or simply chat. You

can expect the first commercial units to arrive this fall.

KALLISTA

Grid Faucet

Earning the Best of Show award at KBIS

was the Grid Faucet from Kallista, a

division of the Kohler Co. This striking

yet simplistic faucet is brought to life by

3D printing technology.

“Through innovative 3D printing

technology, Kallista was able to masterfully

turn a complex vision into a stunning

reality,” the company says. “With

its unique outline form and discreet

interior waterways, Grid’s minimalist,

geometric design delivers an altogether

different and unparalleled faucet experience

that will complement any contemporary

setting.”

Featuring a lightly textured matte

black finish, this sleek and durable faucet

will be available this summer. ➻

SOMERTILE

Reptile Hex Colours Mix

This unique product is a new item from New Jersey-based SomerTile. These

porcelain tiles, which represent “patterned reflections of snakeskin scales,” are

hexagons that can be used on a floor or a wall.

The Reptile Hex Colours Mix has “41 different textured designs that come

together to create varying patterns when arranged together.” The tiles are made

in a range of colors, including cobalt blue, creamy beige, emerald green, violet

and more.

Regardless of the application you choose for these tiles, they surely will create

a wow factor in your space.


NK WOODWORKING & DESIGN

Lotus Bath Collection

My time at the show was winding down, and, frankly, I was making my way out of the Orange

County Convention Center when I was stopped in my tracks. A gorgeous bathtub, part of the

Lotus Bath Collection by NK Woodworking & Design, was like nothing I had seen before.

These bathtubs are handcrafted from sustainable hardwoods and finished with a specialized

clear composite barrier. The look is simply amazing. Functional works of art, the bathtubs were

designed by Nathie Katzoff of NK Woodworking & Design, fabricated at NK’s shop in Seattle,

Washington and can be shipped anywhere.

KALAMAZOO OUTDOOR GOURMET

Smoker Cabinet

The Smoker Cabinet from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet

is available as a built-in under-counter unit (the first of its

kind) or as a freestanding cart. The portable cart version,

which looks like a small kitchen island for your outdoor

space, can easily be moved.

The Smoker Cabinet utilizes gravity-fed charcoal, resulting

in simple temperature control and efficient heat

delivery. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet says, “Thanks to

thoughtful engineering, a single, seven-pound load of

charcoal can maintain an ideal 225°F smoking temperature

for up to 16 hours.” The hardest part may be deciding what

to smoke first.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY

KITCHEN REMODEL

Ambitious design proves that anything is possible

BY JULIE THOMPSON

After living for 17 years in their Centerville home, Teri and Dr. Michael Halasz had to make a decision.

Would it be more worthwhile to move in search of their dream home, or could they transform

their current property into a space they couldn’t have imagined? F Their house search, however,

made them realize that the homes fitting their specifications extended far beyond their budget.

Downsizing wasn’t an option either, as these soon-to-be empty nesters wanted to maintain a space

where their children could eventually visit with their own families, and where they could continue

to entertain throughout the years. As part of their Jewish heritage, hosting large family gatherings

was an important tradition they intended to keep. “It’s not unusual for us to have over anywhere

from 20 to 30 people at any given time, whether it’s for a family dinner or parties,” says Mike. ➻

Bringing a vision to life

After Mike and Teri made the decision to stay, their desire

to remodel their kitchen and dining area would lead them to

reach out to Jane Barlow, of JB Adaptations, after seeing the

results of her previous work in a neighbor’s home. Barlow sat

down with Teri and Mike and began working with them to

develop a plan that would capture their vision and make it

a reality.

“We really just clicked with Jane,” says Teri. “Remodeling

is such an overwhelming process; you have so many options,

and it was really nice to have somebody talk to you, get your

ideas, and then help you narrow it down. She wanted to know

how we cooked; the kinds of things we made; how much

entertaining we did?”

It became apparent they would need to transform the

tightly separated kitchen and dining room areas into a much

more open floor plan. “Right away, it was evident that the

biggest challenge was how to create extra space,” says Barlow.

“Plus they didn’t have enough storage where they were. It

was very tight and enclosed. There was no openness about

any of it.” ➻

Barlow’s plan began with knocking down the load bearing wall, which separated

the dining room from the kitchen, as well as a wall between the kitchen and an

adjoining office. In addition, a partial opening between the kitchen and family room

areas was expanded to complete the transformation.

To help solve the storage issue, a pantry, enclosed by a rustic barn door was built

into a dining room wall, and a large 10x5-foot island was installed in the kitchen.

Though the island seats up to five around its outer perimeter, it offers significant

preparation and storage space in the areas facing the sink, ovens and refrigerator.

“What I found with the big island is that I have much more space,” says Teri. “I can

still use the outside rim as a buffet area and still have plenty of space to prepare.”

The Halasz’s open floor plan also means that both hosts and guests can remain

fully connected in the same space whether they are working in the kitchen, at the

island, or sitting at the family’s massive dining room table.

“The improved flow has allowed them to move the people into the family

room and out the adjoining patio doors,” says Barlow. “It’s a natural progression

where they can easily move outdoors in nice weather. Before, they had a table

really close to those double doors and it made it tough to go outside.” ➻

5 A support beam and posts were installed and camouflaged with a faux finish that

resembles exposed wood beams and pillars. 6 A chrome pot filler blends in perfectly

with the geometric look of the backsplash behind the electric range. 7 A beverage center,

complete with a glass front undercounter refrigerator and a small sink, is tucked into the

corner of the kitchen.

A rustic, modern design

The overall design is a timeless combination of modern with

various rustic natural wood accents from the Pergo Outlast+

flooring to the hand-painted faux wood beam, which divides

the kitchen from the dining room.

The kitchen’s focal point is its cooktop, which is accentuated

by a sleek stainless hood and a unique geometric shaped

black and white tile backsplash and handy pot-filling spigot.

Carrara marble subway tile with beautiful veining was used

to create the main backsplash, providing a perfect contrast to

light gray cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Stunning

pendant lights float above the granite-topped island, while

dimmer controlled recessed lighting is placed throughout the

dining room and kitchen.

“The biggest thing we like is the amount of space, and how

we can ergonomically function together while we have family

and friends in our home,” says Mike.

To see another kitchen with rustic elements and unique

materials, go to housetrends.com and search: Rustic elegance

8 A wall separating the original kitchen and an office was

also removed, allowing for even more cooking space.

Hiding in Plain Sight

Disguise your appliances for big impact in the kitchen

BY CHRISTINA KLEINER

Photo by Mike Kaskel

Streamlined, sophisticated, sleek—these are the buzzwords of the moment when it comes to kitchen

design. It seems that we are all looking for creative ways to simplify our lives and our private spaces.

Homeowners have an appetite for cooking environments that are convenient, yet stylish and designers

are going to great lengths to turn those desires into reality. While kitchen appliances are a necessity—

from keeping fresh foods cold to aiding in clean up after a big meal—we’re seeing them less and less.

No, they aren’t disappearing entirely; they’re being disguised. ➻

housetrends greater miami valley 69


Rid yourself of clutter

Hiding appliances is a simple, yet significant way to bring instant organization and

a clean design aesthetic to the kitchen. Even though you might yearn for that cup of

coffee to jump-start your morning, you might not want to see the coffee maker sitting

on your counter at three o’clock in the afternoon. Rather than cluttering your

countertops with small appliances, try hiding them in plain sight. ➻

Rather than disrupting the

sleek aesthetic of this modern

Tampa, Florida kitchen with a

bulky overhead range hood, the

designer installed a retractable

downdraft vent hood that virtually

disappears into the counter.

finished, it looks great with the door

open or closed. Photo by Dave Bryce

Barn doors continue to be all the rage in home design. This Cincinnati, Ohio kitchen

paint, to turn the 48-inch refrigerator into the focal point. Photo by Emily Beiting

The elephant in the room

Measuring a whopping 48 and sometimes 60-inches wide, the refrigerator is usually the behemoth appliance that keeps kitchen

designers on their toes. For years, a sleek, stainless steel refrigerator was the go-to choice. But despite its popularity and ability

to establish a modern design aesthetic, stainless tends to break up the flow in a kitchen. Designers are now taking a different

approach—making the refrigerator disappear.

PERSEVERANCE

PAYS OFF

Oakwood couple embarks on a handful

of impressive bathroom remodels

BY CHRISTINA KLEINER

There’s an iconic scene in the 1986 film The Money Pit, where Walter, portrayed by Tom

Hanks, is waiting for a bucket of water to warm up in the kitchen. After casually flipping

on a light switch, he ignites an electrical fire that travels along the wiring throughout the

kitchen, blowing a blender, the television and a host of other appliances. The scene culminates

with Walter and Shelley Long’s character, Anna, pouring the hot water into the

bathtub, only to watch it fall through the floor to the room below. ➻

Unexpected roadblocks

You might snicker watching Walter’s

reaction as his kitchen literally explodes

around him, but if you are a homeowner,

your heart sinks and you cringe

in horror—because you understand

and appreciate his struggle to keep it

together in a moment of crisis. While

Walter and Anna’s story is a comedic

work of fiction, one Oakwood couple’s

home remodeling story couldn’t

be more real. Their story started in

2012, when they had the opportunity

to purchase a 1925 Elizabethan Tudor

designed by local architect Louis Lott.

“I grew up in Oakwood and I remember

driving by the house and liking its

unusual architecture,” says the wife.

The previous owners had lived in the

home for 30 years, so the couple was

prepared to do some renovations to

make the home perfect for themselves

and their two children. But just one

week after moving in the basement

flooded. “After that it flooded 22 more

times, so fixing the basement became

our first priority,” the wife says.

They repaired the basement and then all of the plumbing in the house failed.

“We determined that all of the main water lines needed to be replaced,” says the

wife.

While working with their insurance company, which ultimately covered much of

the damage, the couple set out to find a contractor to help them replace the plumbing

and renovate all of the bathrooms in the house. They approached Eric Buecker,

owner of Buecker’s Fine Furniture & Interiors, for recommendations. “They had

purchased two red leather camelback sofas from us for their great room,” he says.

“They didn’t realize that we also do remodeling.”

Working together with the homeowners and a series of subcontractors, Buecker

and his team set out to first replace the plumbing all the way down to the two main

stacks in the house. “We replaced one stack, which allowed us to start construction

on the bathrooms on one side of the house,” he explains. “Once that side was

complete, we replaced the second stack and remodeled the remaining bathrooms.”

In all, the process took roughly three and a half years. “It turns out that having

grown up in an old house prepared me for the quirks and surprises,” the wife says.

Handcrafted beauties

Despite their differences in appearance and style—all five bathrooms have one

major element in common—Rookwood Pottery tile. “I grew up with Rookwood tile

in my childhood home and I’ve always loved its handcrafted look,” says the wife. “I

knew from the very beginning that we were going to include the handmade tile in

our home.”

The master bathroom was the first bathroom they tackled. It also opened their

eyes to what they were going to find in the rest of the house. “I figured we would

have a few inches of concrete and lath in the walls.” Buecker says. “Instead the old

floor tile was installed in nearly two inches of concrete, with lath underneath that,

and then four more inches of concrete that held all of the old plumbing.” ➻

Troy Denlinger of TJ Construction & Tile, worked

with Buecker throughout the entire construction

process, from demo to tile installation. “We hauled

over seven tons of concrete and old tile from the

house,” Denlinger says. “The demo was the toughest

part. Once that was finished, we leveled all the

floors and walls to prep for the new tile.”

Both Denlinger and Buecker enjoyed the complexities

and uniqueness of the Rookwood tile.

They were able to tour the Rookwood Pottery factory

in Cincinnati and see first-hand how the tile

is made. “The tile is remarkable. The variations in

color, the hand-glazed details and painting—that’s

the beauty of these tiles,” says Buecker.

The homeowners selected a combination of

camel and blue tile for the master bathroom. “My

husband wanted a focal point that resembled an

Oriental rug in the shower,” says the wife. “So we

pulled from three different blue tones to create the

look. It is simple but ornate.”

Other unique details include the arched shower

entrance, the 1x1-inch red decorative tile used as a

border on the floor, and the diamond border on the

walls, which mimics the diamond shape seen in the

home’s original leaded glass windows.

The boys’ bathroom on the second floor, adjacent

to the master bath was next on the list.

Featuring predominately blue 6x6-inch field tile

adorned with accent pieces and borders, the homeowners

are particularly proud of the historical significance

in the space. “We were able to repurpose

the original pedestal sinks,” says the wife. “And,

while we really wanted to keep the original lighting,

none of it was up to code. But we were able to

find great vintage lighting online and it really looks

great in the space.” ➻

The homeowners say they receive a lot of compliments

on the black and white bathroom. “We initially

planned to use marble tile, but ultimately chose a

variety of black and white field tile from Rookwood,”

says the wife.

The tile helps to establish the Art Deco feel to

the bathroom, while complementing the age of the

house. An arch was added to the tub/shower area and

a hexagon and diamond pattern on the floor finishes

the overall look. ➻

The homeowners selected color palettes of yellow and green for the remaining

first floor powder room and second floor guest bathroom. “We chose this beautiful

Citrine tile for the powder room,” says the wife. “Paired with the floral decorative

tile, the yellow color might be my favorite.”

The highlight of the guest bathroom is the Whitman Rook tiles seen on the

pedestal sink wall and in the shower. These tiles are from historic molds shown in

Rookwood’s 1912 catalog. Paired with 6x6-inch field tile and Bellamy molding in

a beautiful green color, the bathroom is a true homage to days gone by. “Some of

these tiles were part of the Heritage collection featured in our architectural catalogs

from the 1920’s,” says James Malone, sales associate with Rookwood Pottery

Company. “The homeowners wanted to stay true to the age of the house. These

tiles helped to achieve that desire.”

The honeycomb-inspired design of the black hexagon flooring further completes

the vintage look. “My husband wanted to add the black hexagon tile. He was even

able to help lay the tile in this bathroom,” says the wife. “At first I was worried that

the black tile would stand out too much, but he really made a great design decision.”

Meant to last

Since 1880, the Rookwood Pottery Company has been making this handcrafted,

one-of-a-kind tile. “The fact that it is made right here in our own back yard makes it

even more special,” says the homeowner. “The renovation was definitely an adventure,

but we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.”

Buecker and Denlinger echo the homeowner’s sentiment. “Each bathroom is

unique in its own right. If you look at them separately you would never know they

are in the same house,” Buecker says. “And they are made to last—these bathrooms

are going to be there for another 100 years.”
