ᅀET IN STONᄉ

A charming new patio keeps

with old-world style in Upper Arlington

BY SUSAN ZINGRAF | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

After an extensive renovation to the interior of their home impacted their existing patio space, one Upper

Arlington couple decided that was the catalyst they needed to begin planning a new outdoor haven. ➻


“We had a wonderful patio before, but

we had to redesign it due to the new

construction,” says the homeowner.

The original limestone exterior of the home along with the

property’s mature trees and landscaping led the design direction

for the new outdoor space. Landscape designer Jonathan

Spayde of Landfare Ltd., with whom the couple have had a

long-standing professional relationship, created an elegant new

patio. The space serves as a natural extension of the couple’s

characteristic 1932 home, which was Royce built, with a design

inspired by Cotswold cottages in England.

“We wanted to carry through the old-world feel of the house,

and create a timeless landscape design for the patio to complement

the home’s age,” says Spayde.

Fire starter

A new wood-burning fireplace, constructed of limestone, is

a prominent feature of the new patio. Surrounded by chaise

lounge chairs and curved seating, the fireplace is a work of art.

“The mason matched the stone and placement pattern to

that of the house. Even the grout needed to match what was

used decades and decades ago,” explains Spayde. In the grilling

and dining area, a custom limestone cabinet houses the grill

and stainless steel appliances in the same fashion. He adds,

“Everything ties in seamlessly so the new elements do not look

like an afterthought.” ➻

1 Built in 1932, the home’s design was

inspired by Cotswold cottages in England.

2 A bluestone sidewalk, leading from the

driveway to the front door, is framed by

a boxwood hedge. 3 The wood-burning

fireplace, with its custom designed screen,

allows evenings on the patio to be extended

well into the fall. 4 Hydrangeas, ferns

and hemlocks line the path leading from

the lounge area to the dining space.

custom built to match

the original stone of

the home, includes

a refrigerator, ample

storage, and plenty of

countertop space to

handle a party. 6 An

intimate conversation

cluster, near the dining

area, is the perfect

spot for a pre-dinner

cocktail. 7 Event planner,

Sean Moseley, adds

just the right touches to

set the mood for openair

entertaining. 8 The

same bluestone pavers

used on the floor of

the screened porch are

continued to the outside

patio for a smooth

transition.


Singing the blues

With a classic style and muted earth

tones, bluestone pavers used for the

walkways further complement the

house and new outdoor features.

“We had bluestone on our previous

patio and liked the look and feel of

it, so we wanted to keep that choice,”

the homeowner says. In the new iteration,

the bluestone is extended into the

existing screened-in porch to visually

connect this original indoor space with

the new outdoor area. ➻

The landscaping is designed to tastefully

soften and balance the abundance

of stone. Boxwoods and hemlocks provide

green life year round. In season,

large blooming magnolias, hydrangeas,

and a symphony of seasonal flowers

including spring bulbs, summer annuals,

and fall mums decorate the patio.

“The landscape gives the property

more color, opens it up to reflect a

more sophisticated design, and is complementary

from season to season,”

Spayde adds.

When the couple wants to head outside

and unwind after a long workday,

spend time with family, or enjoy cocktails

with friends, their new patio is a

welcoming space closely tied to home,

in more ways than one.

“We’re out there as much as possible,”

the homeowner says. “We love

it.”

Utilize nature’s

using fresh

fruit as an

eye-catching

cake topper


VANILLA AND FRESH BERRY NAKED CAKE

Cake

2 cups cake flour

¾ teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

1½ cups sugar, divided in half

2½ sticks unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup sour cream at room temperature

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

6 egg whites at room temperature

Strawberries, blueberries and cherries for decoration

Preheat the oven to 350° and line bottoms of two 8-inch cake pans

with parchment paper and butter and flour the sides. Sift the flour, leavening

and salt with ¾ cup sugar. Mix the dry ingredients on low speed for 30

seconds. Add half the sour cream and the butter one tablespoon at a time.

Once blended, add the remaining sour cream and vanilla. Beat on medium

speed about 3-4 minutes until the batter lightens in texture and becomes

aerated. Make sure the batter is thoroughly mixed.

In another bowl, whip the egg whites on medium high until they

form soft peaks.Turn the mixer to medium low and slowly add the

other ¾ cup sugar. Turn the mixer to medium high and whip the whites

to full peak. Fold the whites into the base in 3 parts until there are no streaks

of egg white. Divide the batter evenly between the 2 pans. Bake 25-30

minutes until the center of the cake springs back when lightly pressed or a

toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool 10

minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a cooling rack. Split each cake

into two layers. Fill and ice between layers and on top with Classic Vanilla

Buttercream Frosting. Decorate top with fresh strawberries, blueberries,

cherries and delicate white flowers such as elderflower.

FOR THE LOVE OF

BACKSPLASHES

1

Trendsetting kitchen backsplash design ideas

BY CHRISTINA KLEINER

We seem to have developed a love affair with the backsplash. Once deemed as the protector of the

wall behind your cooktop or sink, the backsplash has now become one of the most important design

elements in the kitchen. You can pick out your favorite cabinet, the most durable material for your

counters, and the perfect range for your cooking needs, but the backsplash seems to take on a life of

its own. There are so many options available, more so than ever before. Here’s our take on some

of the most popular trends and styles available to you today. ➻

housetrends greater columbus 55

SMOOTH TRANSITIONS

We’ve been seeing this application more and more

in kitchen design—big, beautiful slabs of granite,

quartz, and glass being carried up the walls. Easy

to clean and easy on the eyes, if grout lines aren’t

appealing to you, a slab or panel backsplash might be

the perfect alternative. ➻

1 A slab of Cambria’s Brittanicca

quartz was used for this backsplash,

drawing eyes to the stunning

gray veining that mimics the

look of marble behind the range.

2 This kitchen features a 3/4-inch

glass panel backsplash back-painted

in peacock blue acrylic paint.

3 The Star White glass slab from

Walker Zanger is completely

maintenance-free and creates a

sleek design aesthetic in this contemporary

kitchen.

4 Cambria’s Galloway quartz was

carried all the way to the ceiling

behind this stainless steel range

hood, creating a dramatic focal

point in this modern kitchen.

5 Gorgeous slabs of Calacatta

Gold marble from Artistic Tile

were used for the countertops

and backsplashes in this kitchen,

creating a seamless transition

from counter to wall.

housetrends greater columbus 57

WALL ART

A few years ago 1x1-inch

mosaic tile was everywhere.

The shiny, minute tiles

were the go-to choice for

anyone with the desire to

create an eye-catching focal

point behind their range or

cooktop. That trend slowly

transitioned to sleek linear

mosaic tile, which is still

quite popular today. But,

the mosaic tile backsplash

has morphed once again,

thanks to a wide variety of

shapes, bold patterns and

impressive designs. ➻

6 The alluring curves and soft blue hue of this backsplash, comprised of Walker Zanger Jet Set Mai Tai in Cadet Blue, creates an illusion

of movement behind the range in this elegant kitchen. 7 The graphic nature of Oceanside GlassTile’s Devotion Lotus mosaic tile creates

a couture look in a clean, modern kitchen. 8 Crossville’s Ebb & Flow mosaic wall tile in Flora & Fauna successfully blends the beauty of

stone with the clean look of glass, creating a timeless backsplash design. 9 The subtle pattern depicted in Artistic Tile’s Shiraz Bianco

mosaic tile blurs the lines between traditional and modern design, allowing this backsplash to stand out in any atmosphere. 10 The iridescent

look and geometric shape of Oceanside GlassTile’s Tessera Meridian mosaic tile adds the perfect touch of bling to this kitchen.

HOP ON THE SUBWAY TRAIN

You can’t go wrong with a traditional subway tile

backsplash—it’s timeless, classic and beautiful. But

we are now seeing some very unique variations of

this rectangular tile that’s putting a twist on this

kitchen design staple. If you like the look of subway

tile or brick patterns, this could be the backsplash

design for you. ➻

14

15

11 The large format field tile backsplash is the perfect complement to this modern farmhouse kitchen. The 8x12-inch black natural stone

tile from Jeffrey Court creates the ultimate focal point behind the sink. 12 The handmade Décor collection from Hastings Tile & Bath

puts a unique spin on classic white subway tile. The 3x6-inch tiles offer patterns ranging from hand-drawn horizontal lines to vertical lines

and dots—adding character and whimsy to an otherwise ordinary backsplash. 13 The sleek brick shape, paired up with the metallic shine

with hints of brown and blue, allows Artistic Tile’s Kyoto Steel tile to stand out in the crowd. 14 Offering a hint of romance and glamour,

this backsplash features Iris Ceramica’s Be In collection of tile. The vintage-inspired modular tiles come in a variety of soft colors, including

white and gray, laying the groundwork for an invitingly clean kitchen. 15 The epitome of luxury, Artistic Tile’s Calacatta Gold field tile

commands attention in this kitchen. The classic Italian polished white marble features soft gray and gold veining for a one-of-a-kind look.

housetrends greater columbus 61


16

PATTERNS A GO-GO

The backsplash is a great place to experiment

with bold designs, patterns, colors and

materials. From eclectic cement tile to floral

porcelain tile, a pattern backsplash works in

any kitchen style.

17

16 The patchwork look might not

be for everyone, but it sure does

create an eye-catching design. This

contemporary kitchen comes to life

thanks to the South Beach patchwork

cement tile backsplash from

Villa Lagoon Tile. 17 By randomly

mixing and matching the geometric

shapes featured in the Tangram

collection, designed by Atelier,

from Hastings Tile & Bath, homeowners

are able to create a truly

original backsplash. 18 Resembling a

Moroccan mosaic, Walker Zanger’s

Duquesa Fatima decorative field tile

makes a beautiful vintage statement

in this kitchen.

BALANCE

Dublin couple marry their tastes

for a win-win kitchen remodel

BY LEE RHODES

Photos by Marshall Evan Photography

Even the most compatible people can disagree wildly on interior

design. And when a husband and wife don’t have the same taste,

the design process can feel less like spouses working together and

more like distant cousins trying to agree not only on style and color

scheme, but also on the nuances of cabinetry and countertops.

✦ That said, Annie and Mark Laufersweiler of Dublin are a shining

example of how people with different tastes can work well

together. With the help of kitchen designer Olivia Kern Meadows,

their renovated kitchen is a marriage of Mark’s preference for rustic,

natural features and Annie’s sleek, modern style. ✦ “Their kitchen

remodel features clean, sleek lines but also textur ed and rustic

elements, finished off with more modern-edge detailing,” explains

Olivia. ✦ “It was an interesting start,” adds Olivia, who works with

The Cleary Company, the team that handled design and construction.

“Mark loved the house and wanted to stay, but Annie was

ready to downsize and move somewhere else. It was a love-it-orlist-it

kind of thing.” ✦ They decided to “love it.” ➻


From the floor up

The renovation took approximately

three months, and the Laufersweilers

worked their way up, starting with the

floor, choosing Antiquity Medieval Oak,

which has rustic tones and texturing

but is refined enough for Annie’s liking.

“We decided to go with caramel-colored

wood for a rugged floor,” says Annie.

“My husband got the rugged look and

I still got the sleek feel.” Additionally,

the engineered, hardwood prefinish of

the floor meant that the family’s dogs

would be comfortable during the renovation

and not be indisposed while the

floors were drying.

Cabinetry was next on the agenda,

and the couple considered several color

iterations, including a glazed cream,

before arriving at the tranquil Pale

Almond by Benjamin Moore. “We tried

to work with the glaze and then realized

it would be worth it to paint the

cabinets to transform the space,” says

Olivia. “We worked together to find a

versatile, light color that would go with

the backsplash as well as the beams,

floor and other wood elements.”

The island had previously been granite

and the work areas were all marble,

but the couple opted for quartz everywhere

in the renovation. “It’s a nice,

creamy gray so it brings depth and

brightens up the space without being

too stark,” says Olivia. The backsplash,

with a brick look, adds a modern flair

and an element of texture as well. ➻

2 Countertops in Caesarstone quartz are

the perfect complement to the cabinetry,

and the opaque London Fog color adds a

touch of sophistication.

Good idea and a good design

Annie’s not ashamed to admit that she found some inspiration

from HGTV. While watching the network, she saw a sleek

range hood and wondered if the look could be replicated. The

design team had already suggested Annie remove the microwave

that was previously situated above the range, so it was

a win-win. The microwave was relocated to the island, in a

space that previously housed an unused second oven. Then

Olivia found a cabinetmaker who could match the profile of

the rest of the island, adding storage in the form of a baking

sheet drawer. “You can’t even tell it wasn’t part of the original

design,” says Olivia.

To fully showcase the island – and the rest of the kitchen –

the team updated the light fixtures that shine down upon it,

opting for pendant lights and improving the canned lighting

in the ceiling as well. “The lighting was a lot of fun to shop

for. It was like a candy store for my husband,” says Annie with

a laugh.

In shiplap shape

The fireplace provides another source of light, but more so,

warmth and a distinctive touch of character. The original

kitchen also contained a fireplace, which the family used

non-stop, but it needed a makeover. Previously, it was plain

drywall with square tiles. The vision for the new fireplace

was to make the wall more of a focal point and connect this

fireplace with a nearby fireplace in the family room. The latter

was accomplished by extending the shiplap wall in the family

room into the kitchen and using reclaimed wood on the

mantel to tie the two rooms together. ➻

3 A range hood seen on a television program was the catalyst

Annie and the design team needed to replace an over-the-range

microwave.

“The shiplap wall was also a way to combine Annie and

Mark’s two conflicting tastes,” says Olivia. “We gave it clean

lines and a semi-gloss, but it also lends itself to his taste

because it’s rustic.” And the aforementioned dogs? Their

favorite seat in the house is the window seat flanking the

fireplace.

The stainless steel around the mantel mirrors the appliances,

not unlike the way the ceiling mirrors the floor. The

ceiling’s exposed beams, added as part of the renovation, create

visual interest and, once again, lend themselves not only

to Mark’s taste but also to Annie’s refined one. “The room

already had the uplighting in there, so it was screaming for

the beams,” says Olivia.

It’s no surprise that this project won a regional Contractor

of the Year (CotY) award from the National Association of the

Remodeling Industry. But accolades aside, the remodel was

ultimately about updating the look of a kitchen with great

bones while creating a functional space for a busy family of

six – not to mention their beloved dogs.

5 Most of the original cabinets stayed in the same position, but

a few fresh coats of paint make them look brand new.

John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino, who host

HGTV’s Kitchen Cousins, Cousins Undercover

and Cousins on Call, share their best piece of advice,

their favorite project and the real deal on costs.

BY MIKE GENNARIA

Q What is the most important thing a homeowner needs

to know before they start a remodeling project?

A Anthony Carrino “The most important piece of advice that I give to every client,

and it’s the reason we started our podcast, is planning. For our television shows,

for 30 minutes of TV, the project is a three, four or five-day build. That means eight

weeks of planning so we can execute that quickly. So when people are doing a home

renovation of any size, I really say three months to four months is your planning

process before you start making a mess.”

Q Do you have a favorite project you have worked on?

A John Colaneri “It was five years ago now. Superstorm Sandy hit New Jersey. Being

from New Jersey, it was a big emotional impact to us. We teamed up with Ellen

DeGeneres, and we did an entire house renovation in five days for these two first

responders that had five feet of water in their house. The best part about it was they

were supposed to have their wedding two weeks later after Superstorm Sandy. But

their venue was totally destroyed. They had their wedding at their house, and it was

great. And, honestly, it gives me chills to this day.”

Q Do you ever run into issues with reality when it comes

to your types of shows and how customers view pricing?

A Anthony Carrino “All. The. Time. I think that some channels do homeowners an

injustice in the sense that they are not conveying what things cost. And not only does

the product cost money, but you have labor involved in that, too. That’s why John and

I love the education process so much, because it really is important to educate people

on how much these things cost.”

PERSONALITY

Homeowners show no fear

when decorating these little gems

BY KAREN BRADNER

Even though they are typically the

smallest rooms in our homes, powder

rooms often get showered with

more than their fair share of pizazz.

The four basic elements necessary—

vanity, toilet, lighting and mirror—

take on an inviting appeal when extra

touches on the walls, floors, and

even sometimes the ceilings, come in

to play. F Here we have three collections—showcasing

tile, wood and

wallpaper—that illustrate how these

surfaces can add a whole new layer

of personality. ➻

WALLS THAT WORK WITH WOOD

By simply adding a grid of 1"x 3" strips of poplar to this accent

wall, the designer added a classic element to the space with

a subtle touch. While it is painted a crisp white, the wall is

anything but plain, as the wooden details transform it from a

simple white wall to one with dimension and shadows.

Wanting to keep with the traditional feel of this home, which was built in

1918, the designer matched the detail of the dining room’s wainscoting for this

adjacent half bath. Seen in the mirror is a blue door that swings between this

room and the butler’s pantry which has its walls, cabinets and ceiling all painted

the same blue.

In this handsome half bath, the designer created a wall treatment that, while it

looks like custom paneling, is actually a simple applied wood molding done with

3/4" wide squared MDF trim. Then she painted it the wall color in a high gloss

sheen to make it more durable. ➻

MAKE IT POP WITH PAPER

Wanting this room to be really special, the

homeowner was willing to take a bit more

of a risk with its design. The first sample of

this wallpaper the designers showed her was

taupe. When she saw the color options she

decided to go with the dramatic black version.

The designers agreed it was the perfect

choice.

allow more space for a kitchen renovation.

Its new hallway location fits

the natural flow of traffic through the

a diamond and arabesque trellis, and

atop that, an ogee design. The variety

Creating a new space while using the

owner’s vintage mirror and chandelier

demanded a mixture of classic fresh

elements such as; white painted nickel

a marble countertop. When paired

with the paisley wall covering and the

feel that runs through

the rest of this home, the
