HELLO

nea PEEK

Colin Miller/Strauss Peyton

Welcome to SLHLs second annual Favorite Spaces issue! We are extremely excited
to give you another sneak peek into some of St. Louis best design professionals
favorite spaces in their own homes. So get comfortable, grab a cup of tea or a glass
of wine, and savor each and every beautifully designed space.
Amie Corley, interior designer and young mom, enjoys spending time with her
family in her cheerful sunroom (page 44) that is at once comfortable and chic.
Bright colors, fanciful artwork, vintage finds and mix-and-matched furnishings
come together masterfully to create a kicked-back, family-friendly hangout that is
still big on style.
Interior designer Ellen Kurtz has done a fabulous job transforming her unfinished
lower level into a rustic and rugged entertainment space reminiscent of the Old
West (page 46). Her expert use of textiles, fabrics and finishes, as well as unique
furnishings and accessories, gives this fun for all ages room durability and
panache.
With the mountains rising regally in the background, interior designer Steve
Toedebuschs loggia (page 48) at his California home is magical in every way. Rich
in detail and custom touches, this refined poolside oasis is Steves favorite place to
get away from it all.
Happy, happy, happy! Thats how I would describe interior designer Joni Spears
marvelous family room (page 52). Who wouldnt want to spend time in this colorful,
eclectic space? Joni has created a delightful gathering area, chic and sophisticated
yet relaxed and friendly, to share with family and friends.
Interior designer Heidi Hartwigs living room (page 54) is a study in the elegance
of traditional dcor. Its deep chocolate walls serve as a rich backdrop for luscious greens, reds and golds and classic
furnishings that are as timeless as they are beautiful.
Bold, bright and fresh. Interior designer Denise Fogartys revamped dining room (page 56) is all of these things.
With a brand new look, this welcoming and spirited space is one you would never want to leave.
Kitchen designer Julie Cullman has fashioned a kitchen (page 60) that uniquely blends contemporary and
traditional style. With its clean lines and soft hues, this cooks kitchen is one that Julie will enjoy for a long time.
Tranquil and serene, the spa-like master bathroom (page 62) in interior designer Jane Ganzs home is the
epitome of elegance. A true retreat, this is the ideal spot to relax at the end of a busy day. The finest finishes blend
beautifully with the latest technology to make Jane's master bath the ultimate luxury.
A quietly masculine guest room (page 64) is one of interior designer Diane Breckenridge-Barretts favorite rooms
in her home. Lovingly designed with her grandsons in mind, this softly hued room, with its classic details and a
touch of whimsy, would make any guest feel special.
And last, but certainly not least, is SLHLs favorite home with a view (page 30). Situated on a stunning bluff
overlooking the Missouri River, this St. Albans beauty is truly spectacular in every way, with stunning views from
every room that capture natures splendor.
This special issue of the magazine is one of my favorites, too. I hope it will become one of yours.

HELLO

Enjoy the

Ben Gibbard, an American musician born


in the 1970s, wrote I wish we could open
our eyes, to see in all directions at the same
time. Oh what a beautiful view. Thats how I
felt when I read this issue of SLHL; that every
single page was a new view, a glimpse into
the lives and spaces of some of the best
design professionals in St. Louis.
Winners of our second annual Favorite
Spaces contest, these talented individuals
each offer unique perspectives on what makes
them happiest at home; each has a different
point of view and theyre all beautiful!
In this autumn issue, we also share with you SLHLs favorite home with a view, a stunning jewel that rises
majestically over the Missouri River at St. Albans. Again, its all about the views. Designed and built to take full
advantage of the natural beauty surrounding it, this home took our breath away.
For my birthday this year, my wonderful husband, Barney, surprised me with something Ive been secretly
coveting for years a hot pink scooter! Isnt that funny? I have always loved watching people zoom around on
these mini motorcycles and thought how fun it would be to have one of my own. So now I do!
And as I was zooming into work the other day, it struck me that one of the things I love most about my
scooter is the opportunity it gives me to enjoy the views. Theres something kind of optimistic and uplifting
about the time I spend on my scooter. With the wind rushing through my hair and the cool breeze on my face,
I just feel happy, especially knowing that the view ahead on the road, and just in life is rosy and bright.
So as we make our way into another fabulous fall, we at SLHL hope you are inspired by the views, not only on
our pages, but in your own lives as well.

SLHL staffers share their seven favorite design


trends featured in the magazine in 2011 with these
must-have items that embody each trend.

1. This transitional rug feels like a playful take


on Victorian wallpaper prints, and the subdued
chocolate and vanilla colors really let the
detailed pattern shine. Its a fresh, clean accent
that would complement contemporary or
classic dcor.

2. A soft blend of wool, angora and cashmere


gives this throw a velvety texture perfect for
curling up with on a chilly night. The soothing
colors are calm and welcoming and would be a
nice complement to any living room during our
cooler seasons perfect with a chai tea latte!

Liz Miller, Assistant Editor


Favorite Trend: High Fashion Floors (March)

Favorite Trend: Crazy for Cozy (Jan./Feb.)

3. I love the combination of the style and


floral pattern of this chair. The shape reminds
me of my favorite flower the tulip! I would
definitely use this to add a wow-factor in my
bedroom.
Lauren Schrader, Art Director
Favorite Trend: From the Garden (June/July)
Astrid Chair in Posy, handmade in the United

4. All of the excitement from the royal wedding


in April turned me into a bit of an Anglophile.
I love how the simple crown on this pillow
contrasts so nicely against the classic bold colors
of the Union Jack. Incorporating this iconic
symbol into home dcor is the perfect way to
pay tribute to our friends across the pond.

5. The curved legs on this sleek leather chair


add a traditional look to its otherwise sharp,
contemporary design. The shiny lacquered
wooden legs and nailhead trim add elegant
detail to the crisp black and white upholstery.

6. Sophisticated and striking, I love the air of


glamour that mirrored furniture adds to a room,
and this brilliant accent table radiates class. It
transforms from one design style to the next
and would be an eye-catching addition to a
chic, modern bedroom or a subtle highlight in
an over-the-top living room.

This color has a little more yellow in it than other chartreuse


greens, which I think gives it a little more pop. It goes beautifully
with browns, charcoals and even whites, adding a vibrant color. It
also goes really well with coral, which is my all time favorite color. In
fact, I have those colors [chartreuse and coral] in my living room.

against a dark gray-glazed wall, and it
complements darker and lighter hues of lavender
(such as hydrangea blue). It could be used as a focal color against stark white,
cream or other neutral settings. The freshness of this color also works so well with
metallics gold, silver, chrome, etc. We have used this perky, happy color as an
accent in pillows, throws, custom rugs, ceramic accessories, floral arrangements,
art and chair covers.

Teal for a long time has received a bad rap. This year it has
come back with a vengeance and is popping up everywhere.
This bold hue looks great as a accent wall. It can also make a
statement as a throw pillow, a fun accessory, an area rug or
picture frame. However, this color should never be used as a
bridesmaid dress!

This is a transformative color. Its not your typical chocolate brown; it


has subtle undertones of purple that adds interest and drama. Purple
is hot right now, and this color is more complex than a deep purple.

The new hue I am excited about is a

of green. I especially like it paired with
deep chocolate brown. I have recently
incorporated it into my own home, with some new toss pillows in a wonderful
graphic suzani pattern.

I like this yellow because it has a lot of


gold in it, and its warm, rich and sunny. It
just has an uplifting, happy feel. This color
would look great in a room with high
ceilings and in a room with a lot of light.

It has been said that red stimulates


conversation; it is inviting, warm and always
flattering. Use it on walls with a glaze for
drama, paint a foyer ceiling for an unexpected
dimension, or use it as an accent color in fabrics or on pillows to add
depth and interest.

Blue

I love blue; not quite navy, but deeper than royal. I like to incorporate
transferware pieces, like the traditional blue willow pattern. I just used a
linen fabric with a blue and white chinoiserie pattern from Lee Jofa in a
master bedroom.

Juicy steaks, rosemary-scented legs of lamb, thick-cut pork chops ahhh, music to my ears.
Okay, you guessed it, Im an admitted meat lover, and when autumns chill nips the air, I feel all
the more justified when my eyes make a mad dash for the delicious meat entres on the menu.
So its understandable then that I also enjoy the ripe red wines that go best with them.
There are probably thousands of Cabernet Sauvignons on the market from nearly every
grape-growing country in the world. But there arent very many winemakers who can boast
of producing top-quality Cabs from two hemispheres.
California native Robert L. Pepi is a winemaking consultant for one of Argentinas oldest
wineries, Valentin Bianchi, while also producing his own single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet
Sauvignon Eponymous, as well as wines for other California producers.
Its a fascinating exercise to try Bobs 2008 Eponymous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
(grown on a small mountain vineyard right below Bobs house), then the 2008 Two Angels
Mayacamus Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (with grapes from a vineyard Bob owns near the
top of the Mayacamus Mountains on the Sonoma side), and finally, Valentin Bianchis 2008
Famiglia Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon from the Bianchis high desert vineyards in the foothills
of the Andes Mountains.
At three different price points (Eponymous retails for around $45, Two Angels at
approximately $27 and Famiglia for about $18), each is a great bargain given the pure
expressions of the Cabernet grape in every bottle.
Other, more hearty big red wines fit the bill when enjoying substantial fall fare, including
Spains signature grape, Tempranillo. Very little blending is done in Spain, so many of its wines
are 100 percent Tempranillo. The differences stem from the terroir (a combination of soil,
altitude and climate) in which the grapes are grown; the type of oak used (primarily coming
from France, the United States or Eastern European countries) to age the wines; and the period
of time the wine resides in the oak.
In Spain, certain designations on the label indicate how long the wine has aged. If a wine
is labeled Crianza, it must age in oak a minimum of one year, with an additional one year
of aging in the bottle before it is released for sale. Bodegas Muriel Crianza from Rioja Alta
and Tinto Figuero 10 Months from the Garcia Figuero family in the Ribera del Duero are two
well-priced, beautifully executed Crianzas that are shining examples of the high-quality wines
coming from their regions.
If you follow the Duero River from Spain into neighboring Portugal, youll end up in that
countrys renowned Douro Valley. Though the river has subtly changed names, this area
grows comparable big reds that have become highly prized for their sophistication and fruitforward style. Unlike Spain, almost all of Portugals top red wines are blends of three to more
than 20 grape varieties. Quinta do Vallado, where the family descended from the Ferreira port
house, founded in the 1700s by Portugese legend Dona Adelaide Ferreira, produces many of
the highest-rated Douro Valley red wines. The winerys Douro Red 2008 is a relative bargain for
a five-grape wine of this depth and dark fruit flavors.
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the richness of the big reds. And you can be sure Ill be
savoring them all winter long. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.

utumn is a special season for a native St. Louis


couple who recall falling in love with a potential
homesite during Oktoberfest a few years back.
We were viewing the property from a helicopter, and the
leaves were just spectacular, the wife remembers. Situated
on the soaring bluffs of St. Albans, the 8-acre site offered
majestic views and an opportunity to build a secluded luxury
estate that took full advantage of the sweeping vistas. Today,
their European-influenced home is romantic and welcoming,
nestled among towering trees and directly overlooking the
Missouri River and surrounding countryside.

Situated adjacent to the Country Club of St. Albans, SLHL's favorite


"home with a view" is part of a community comprised of more than
300 homes in 13 unique neighborhoods, each just minutes from the
manicured grounds of the golf course. The road leading to the hilltop
home mimics a switchback, zigzagging through a series of near-hairpin
turns, climbing all the while. Designed by architect Dick Busch, the
house is impressive without being ostentacious. The beautiful stone

facade echoes the color of the nearby bluffs and softly changes from
chalk to pewter as the sunlight fades from day into evening. Designed
to maximize the views, nearly every room of the spacious home has
westward-facing windows that frame the river valley beyond. The
owners had considerable input into the architectural design and admit
that getting it right was an evolving process. My husband must have
redrawn the plans a hundred times, laughs the wife, and the husband

sheepishly agrees, Its sort of a hobby of mine! But both are quick to
pay tribute to the primary architect and many artisans who turned
their dream into a reality. The design process was so collaborative and
positive everyone made valuable contributions, from the architect
to the stonemason to the framing carpenter, the husband notes. We
were fortunate to work with so many highly skilled people.
The result is a home that not only perfectly suits the site but also

beautifully reflects the owners attention to detail. The interior feels


exceedingly cozy in spite of the expansive windows and generously
sized rooms, thanks in part to the soft palette, warm lighting and
scaled-for-comfort furnishings. Another key reason the house feels so
enveloping is that the ceiling height varies from room to room, and
sometimes even within a room, boosting the intimacy factor of certain
spaces and helping to define specific living areas with few interior

the wedding was here on the grounds.
As the sun sinks low on the western

Why she loves it:

Palm Beach meets bohemian is how interior designer Amie Corley


describes her cheerful sunroom. Ive tried to establish a balance between
wild artwork and fun, colorful upholstery, says Amie. I believe that spaces
should look curated styled and assembled over a period of time rather
than all at once. Amie mixed vintage finds, such as the chartreuse Knoll
chairs, with new pieces including the urbane white coffee table. Creating
a kid-friendly space that the whole family could enjoy was Amies
mission, as her sunroom triples as a family room and TV room. The bright
colors keep us happy, and the mismatched style is a perfect blend of
comfortable and chic, says Amie.

Why the judges love it:

This room is all about the successful blending of opposites vintage


and modern, eclectic and traditional, and bright colors contrasted with
neutrals. It stylishly marries a personal and cozy feel with an alive and
upbeat ambience. This is an engaging, fun space for todays modern

Why she loves it:

The inspiration for interior designer Ellen Kurtzs


rustic lower level was her western movie buff
husband, Ty. The space was unfinished when Ellen
began planning the remodel, and she made sure
it was as kid-friendly as it was Old West-rugged
every step of the way to accommodate the couples
children and grandchildren. The space needed a TV
area, a pool table area and a bar, says Ellen. Using
concrete countertops and stained concrete floors
made it easy for cleanup and Little Tikes cars! Barn
wood for wainscoting, slate for the fireplace and tall,
fabric-covered booth seating tie the rooms theme
together fashionably and flawlessly.

Why the judges love it:

This lower level is a gorgeous example of how to


do a themed room correctly. The authentic, rustic
details work together to create a warm entertaining
area. The textile and fabric choices, such as the
leather and nailhead trim adorning the front of the
bar, are not only on theme but work together to
create a stylish, fantastical retreat.

Why he loves it:

This poolside sanctuary in the California home of interior designer Steve Toedebusch is his pride
and joy. It is a loggia off the living room and is used most of the time for entertaining and just
relaxing, says Steve. Rich, unique details, including custom-made light fixtures and crosscut
travertine marble flooring, give the space show-stopping edge. His outdoor retreat is a soothing
spot to read and admire the view during the day and transitions into a cool, cozy space to dine in
the evening. With the doors open to the living room and candlelight, it can be a magical place,
says Steve.

Why the judges love it:

This warm, coastal-inspired outdoor living space is a flawless example of high design and dcor.
The whitewashed ceiling and beams add a Cape Cod feel to the sophisticated seating area and
are complemented by the cream-colored curtains that add a beach cabana feel. The minimal,
sleek design and simple furnishings make it a welcoming oasis.

time is cherished, says interior designer Joni Spear.
The family room is designed to be a vibrant space
that naturally draws us together. The bright fuchsia
walls are happy and hospitable and pop against
the white leather sectional sofa and molding. Bold
colors were inspired by the rug, which grounds the
space and plays nicely off of the wall palette, says
Joni. The flat-screen TV and family computer make
this room a popular hangout for the whole family
and as Joni describes it, a wonderfully endless
stream of friends.

Why the judges love it:

The white molding against the bold walls in this


bright space add chic sophistication and formality
to a relaxed, inviting family room. With an eyepleasing layout and welcoming furnishings, the
designer has blended elements of refined style
with a joyful, family-friendly color palette.

positioned above the fireplace
brings the whole family together
to keep warm while watching
games during the bustling coldweather sports season.

Why she loves it:

Filled with traditional, romantic charm


and sophistication, interior designer Heidi
Hartwigs living room combines classic
furnishings with warm color. The luscious
window treatments pop off the chocolate
mink walls, which were painted by a local
artist, says Heidi. Much of the furniture
was handpicked and purchased in Florida
and shipped to St. Louis. I love the
Century Furniture sofa in the buttery gold
fabric with beautiful bullion trim, says
Heidi. Other favorites in the room include
the Henredon chair in green velvet
damask, the wooden secretary filled with
small antiques and the refined, stately
lamps and light fixtures.

Why the judges love it:

The dark brown walls are a good choice


they work with both the wood tones
of the furniture and the rose and green
fabrics and accent colors. This room
is everything a successful living room
should be: breathtaking and inviting,
while retaining a strong feeling of
personality and comfort.

Why she loves it:

The dining room is a very important space


in interior designer Denise Fogartys home. It
acts as a study for her son, a conference room
for her meetings with sales representatives
and an entertaining space for parties and
get-togethers. So, when Denise decided to
redo the rooms dcor, she chose a bright
and welcoming color palette. Bold green
paint and vibrant reupholstered chairs add
personality, and crisp white chandelier
shades balance the room with sophisticated
style. After months of eyeing artwork that
didnt quite fit with the dcor of her house,
Denise found a home for the pieces in her
cheery new dining room. The artwork was
one of the final touches. It made the whole
room feel more like the rest of my home
beachy, says Denise.

Why the judges love it:

Opposite page: The newly upholstered Chippendalestyle chairs pop with eye-catching color.

This room has a fresh look thats interesting


without feeling too contrived. The contrast
between the dark wood and crisp, bright
upholstery fabric and paint is pleasing, and
the striking green walls really make the art
pop. Using the strongest color on the walls
was a bold choice that paid off.

Why she loves it:

Its [helped] transition me from being a single person to


a married person, says kitchen designer Julie Cullman of
her kitchen. I started the design process when I was single,
and by the time it was finished, we were getting married.
Julie shares that she and her new husband chose to host
their wedding reception at their home and that the kitchen
provided a happy place to celebrate with friends and
family. When asked what she loves most about the space,
she doesnt hesitate to say its the glossy countertops. The
green countertop on the island and around the sink [are
my favorite parts], says Julie. Its an unusual material, and
I love the greens, grays and cream colors. Other favorite
items include the professional-style appliances (Julie loves
to cook), the restored vintage dining table purchased at a
flea market and the mid-century chairs she inherited from
her grandmother.

Why the judges love it:

Clean lines and quiet dcor make this uncluttered kitchen


restful. The green and gold palette and lovely natural light
is complemented with a skillful use of subtle color the
pear hue warms up the stainless steel and balances the
strong black accents. This kitchen is a very adept mix of
styles it is contemporary, with nods to the mid-century
design of the home.

Why she loves it:

The elegant master bathroom in interior designer Jane


Ganzs home captures the feeling of a tranquil spa
retreat. Complete with a fireplace and television within
sight of the enormous, in-ground bathtub, the upper
level includes hand-blown glass sinks, glazed antique
cream furniture and silver patina and crystal wall
sconces. From polished porcelain tile with iridescent
mosaic squares to a coffered ceiling with intricate
molding, a crushed glass chandelier and a skylight,
this bathroom is truly a therapeutic retreat from head
to toe. Its a perfect place for a glass of wine and
meditation as I watch the glow of the fireplace, made
of aqua burning glass, says Jane.

Why the judges love it:

Elegant restraint makes the fine materials used to


create this spa-like master bath serene and chic.
Technology for ultimate comfort is seamlessly
incorporated with a fireplace and television, and
the marble gives the room its twist, moving it away
from the expected. The echo of the cool color of the
marble in the upholstery choice for the two chairs is
also a lovely, unexpected touch.

Why she loves it:

Creating a subdued yet lively guest bedroom that will charm guests
of all ages is challenging unless youre interior designer Diane
Breckenridge-Barrett. Diane describes this space as perfect for all
my grandsons and says that the design is in the details. When I saw
the chest, with its maritime motif, I knew I had found the perfect
inspiration for the room, says Diane. Every time I walk by this room,
I cannot help but appreciate the details that pull [it] together. The
custom-made caramel duvet covers with aqua accents are playfully
complemented by the aqua walls, knitted pillow shams and plaid
fabrics that pepper the rooms dcor.

Why the judges love it:

Exuding quiet masculinity with its subdued but warm color scheme,
this room shows careful attention to detail. The welting on the
bed covering draws in the blue of the ship on the antique dresser
without seeming overly coordinated. Its a versatile space where
a guest of any age could rest comfortably. The headboards, made
with nailhead trim and plaid upholstery, are a good everything old
is new again nod to classic decorating.
