  • First Impressions

    By late February, most of us in central Ohio have a healthy case of cabin fever, espe-cially since old man winter promptly showed up with a blanket of snow on the first of December. Its been three long months and we are ready for the sun to shine and warm our bones. And we are ready to get outside and get moving on those projects around the house.

    One way to get a jump on spring and dive right in even before the snow has melted is to attend the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show, presented by gridSMART from AEP Ohio.

    Whether you are planning a new addition to your home, remodeling an existing area or simply sprucing up, the spring home show promises plenty of ideas that will give you both inspiration and motivation.

    One of the main attractions will feature 14 gardens themed to Gardens that Rock! Our own gardening writer Michael Leach, in his Great Outdoors column, takes a look at why rock gardens are both practical and pleasing to the eye.

    Also inside this issue, youll find features on master bedroom suites, luxurious baths and exotic dcor one of which just might inspire you to do some redecorating or remodeling of your own.

    The show will be held Feb. 26 to March 6 at the Ohio Expo Center and will be filled full with eight days worth of attractions, events and exhibitors all of which are sure to put you in a spring state of mind. See pages 76-77 for more detailed information. Hope to see you at the show!

  • For military captains or captains of industry, retreat and surrender is a last resort.

    But knowing when to retreat often can save the day especially

    when that day is busy and stressful. For the harried head of household, falling back, reloading and regrouping is sometimes the smartest strategy.

    And what better place to lay low than in the master bedroom?

    The luxuriously appointed master suite has become the ultimate escape a private place where homeowners literally can shut the door on a hectic day.

    Whether they decompress in a king-sized bed draped with cozy textiles or in a Jacuzzi tub set to stun, homeowners who have mastered the suite life have commissioned a masterpiece in the liberating art of surrender.

    People dont want a bedroom any-more, they want an owners retreat, says Kevin Knight, home builder and owner of Kevin Knight & Company.

    Knight and interior designer Pamela Stavroff Stefanescu created a master suite addition that feels more like an apartment getaway for Muirfield Vil-lage homeowners Shelley and Mike Radcliffe.

    This is my favorite room in the house, Mike says.

    The Radcliffes master is minimalist and modern yet soft and soothing, with an emphasis on pampering extras and sophisticated functionality.

    We wanted this to be a pleasant space to relax, Shelley says.

    The entrance to the suite feels as if it leads to a second home. Behind the door stands a hallway with a living area and office at its far end. To the right of the door rests the bed room quite literally.

    All they want to do in here is sleep, read and watch TV, Stavroff Stefanes-cu says.

    The TV is camouflaged behind a wall paneled with ribbon-striped mahogany, and a balcony shows off the couples pristine views. A pair of pocket doors can be closed to separate the space from the rest of the master suite.

    Farther down the suites hallway sits an exercise room. The equipment faces a wall of windows. A beverage station with refrigerator, icemaker and dish-washer separates the space from the hall. Peeking through the station are his-and-her sinks facing one another.

    Beyond them is a freestanding Ja-cuzzi tub with an adjacent two-person shower. Green glass and black absolute granite give the space a modern, re-fined vibe. Light pours into the bath-room through a wall of windows near the tub and a skylight in the shower. Radiant heating seeps through the flooring to keep the space cozy despite its minimalist style.

    This bath is Zen, quiet, spalike, Knight says.

    Beyond the bathroom is a large liv-ing area flanked by pale-green velvet couches and more custom-made, ribbon-striped mahogany cabinetry and a desk. A crackling fireplace warms the room. Large-scale pieces from the couples contemporary art collection pepper the muted green walls of the thoughtfully designed suite.

    If we slapped a stove back here, we could live back here, easily, Mike says.

    Green and brown hues dominate

    the rest of the suite and mimic the natural views visible through the gener-ous windows. Motorized shades easily can be drawn for privacy.

    When designing the dcor, Stavroff Stefanescus guiding principle was simple, modern elegance.

    (A master suite) should be sophisticated and mini-mally appointed so things are restful, she says. Too much stuff is not restful. It makes people nervous.

    The designers philoso-phy is shared by an Upper Arlington homeowner who recently completed a master suite addition to her home of 40-plus years.

    I wanted it easy, she says. Im usually in a hurry and I didnt want to have to fluff cushions and all that.

    The third time really is the charm for her master suite. She has two previous masters upstairs.

    By adding a ground-level third suite, the homeowner has refined her escape to beautiful bare bones and created a first-floor living area that can be negotiated with ease as she gets older.

    With interior designer Susan Matrkas help, the homeowner also has crafted a place where she can pause her busy schedule as a restaurateur and active member of her community.

    The master addition was built last year by Michael Matrka, Inc. An oval ves-tibule gracefully leads into the bedroom off a small din-ing room and sitting area.

    The vestibule creates an effortless entrance with recessed shelves and beauti-fully muted stone tile.

    The restful ivory and beige colors draw the eye languidly into the subdued whites, taupes and beiges

    that cover every surface of the master bedroom and bath.

    I dont like a lot of color, so its very soothing, she says.

    The homeowner found inspiration for her alabas-ter-hued bedroom and some of the furniture and textiles found within from the bedrooms designed by Susan Matrka and Sally McDonald at the 2009 Decorators Show House.

    From the outside, the master addition flows seam-lessly. In fact, the home-owner says that when some old friends recently drove by her home, they told her they didnt even notice the new addition.

    The main thing was, I wanted it to architectur-ally fit onto the house, she says. There (are) so many additions that look like theyre additions.

    Other must-haves included generous closet space, a fireplace, hidden TV cabinet and a steam shower in the bathroom.

    An upholstered reading chair and floor lamp cozy up near the fireplace, and favorite pieces from the homeowners extensive art collection present sooth-ing scenes of nature and architecture. Calcutta gold marble and gold fixtures warm the crisp-white bath-room.

    Matrka says the bed-room presents handsome examples of a few ingre-dients that any successful master suite must mix in, such as a soothing color palette, quality linens, great lighting, plenty of orga-nized storage space, cozy carpeting and comfortable chairs.

    I cant think of a single thing thats missing, the homeowner agrees.

    With the popularity of big box stores and the availabil-ity of boutique and online shop-ping, homeown-

    ers can acquire specialty items from just about any destination their curiosity can conjure. Persian rugs, Asian art, Spanish tiles or African furniture incorporating exotic dcor from far-flung locales has never been so simple or affordable.

    But what draws people to a faraway lands design sensibilities is completely personal and often speaks volumes about their own journey.

    East meets WestEverything has a story, says Nancy

    Ikels of her familys extensive collection of Asian antiques and accessories. The native Texans favorite part about col-lecting Asian dcor is the history of each item from what purpose the item served to how she happened upon it.

    Ikels collection reflects her familys story as well. Her husbands work took the couple and their two children to Shanghai, China, where they lived from 2000 to 2002.

    While there, Ikels acquired a houseful of Asian dcor.
