For me, spring has always represented a time for fresh starts, changes, new opportunities. looking back over the years, Ive noticed a pattern. Really great stuff both personally and professionally has come my way in the spring, like finding out I was going to have a baby to landing an awesome job, thankfully on different occasions. </p><p>years ago, a friend told me my good fortune during this time of year had something to do with the month I was born (april) and the way the stars and the planets were aligned. Im not sure whether that has anything to do with anything, but Ill take it any way I can get it.</p><p>In keeping with the theme of fresh starts, beginning with this issue, youll notice some changes to the magazine. the design is cleaner, sleeker and theres more white space. </p><p>as always, we have some great features. Our cover story, titled bIg art, has some fantastic examples of how to display big, bold artwork </p><p>without overpowering a room. In at Home With, we get to see the personal side of 10tV morning news anchor Jeff Hogan. and our great Outdoors feature pays tribute to some of central Ohios public gardens. </p><p>Whether you are a regular reader or this is the first time youve picked up a copy of the magazine, I hope you enjoy it. Please e-mail me with your thoughts on our new look.</p><p>5300 Crosswind dr., Columbus, ohio 43228</p><p>From the Editor</p><p>Central OhiO hOme &amp; Garden is a publiCatiOn Of the COlumbus dispatCh advertisinG department. fOr advertisinG infOrmatiOn, COntaCt debOrah JaCksOn at 469.6136 Or dJaCksOn@dispatCh.COm.</p><p>Cover photo john knouff</p></li><li><p>spring 2012</p><p>ON THE COVER Big Art 8</p><p>DEPARTMENTSAt Home With 16</p><p>Great Outdoors 37</p><p>Our Backyard 50</p><p>fEATuRESThings We Love 48</p><p>8 37</p><p>16</p></li><li><p>On the Cover</p><p> Story by jeff thitoff PhotoS by john knouff</p><p>BIGArtWhen Artwork Dominates a Room</p><p>8 Central ohio home &amp; Garden SPrinG 2012</p></li><li><p>Clocks are experiencing a resurgence in popularity as pieces of artwork. this one was featured in </p><p>fischer homes 2011 biA Parade of homes entry.</p><p>Central ohio home &amp; Garden SPrinG 2012 9 </p><p>Big, beautiful art is a welcome sight, but the placement and selec-tion of such large pieces of art can be challenging unless you can tap into the expertise of those who know a little something about it.

For instance, some people like to have a minimalist look ev-erywhere, except when it comes to the art they want bold artwork that pops, she says</p><p>That is both the interesting and enjoyable part of the process for Pheiffer.</p><p>Artwork doesnt have to match the room complete-</p><p>ly, and part of my job as the designer is to show clients different perspectives and different art and how it can work in a room, Pheiffer says. If I am working with someone who is extremely traditional, I might have them consider putting a large piece of contemporary abstract art in an area and nine times out of 10, they love it.</p><p>Thats the best way to tell if the large art works in a room if the homeowner loves it, she says.</p><p>Sharon Weiss, owner of the Sharon Weiss Gallery </p></li><li><p>three bold medallions hang over the fireplace in Crystal nelsons Powell home.</p><p>Central ohio home &amp; Garden SPrinG 2012 11</p></li><li><p>Choosing art and selecting how to display art is, well, an art.</p><p>From top to bottom Fischer Homes, a participant in the 2011 BIA Parade of Homes, displays a large theater reel in the basement. Crystal Nelsons family photos come to life with unique floor-to-ceiling wall treatments. Faux tiles and floor-length mirrors give Laura Watsons basement more depth and style. </p><p>in the Short North, has been collecting Ohio art for more than 40 years. She has one critical piece of advice for potential buyers when trying to decide on which art to purchase, no matter the size of the piece.</p><p>You have to love it, because you are going to live with it, Weiss says. When someone sees something they like, I tell them to come back and look at it again and see if they have the same reaction.</p><p>Once youve fallen in love with the art, Weiss says you will find a way to fit it into your space. </p><p>But how do you make sure your large art is a complementary piece to your room and not overpowering? </p><p>Choosing art and selecting how to display art is, well, an art.</p><p>In Crystal Nelsons previous two homes, she had a large medallion mounted over her fireplace. When she enlisted the help of Pheiffer and Shanna Young on her Powell home, Young sug-gested adding two large mirrored medal-lions and having the three pieces lined up above the fireplace.</p><p>It is something different, and I thought it was a great idea by Shanna, Nelson says. It doesnt overpower the room because we have a tall ceiling, and it gives a defined look with a little more pop to it.</p><p>Mirrors are an unconventional dis-play of art, but are starting to emerge as large pieces that are friendly to the eye. </p><p>Pheiffer used mirrors in Dublin resi-dent Laura Watsons basement. </p><p>We took floor-to-ceiling mirrors with smoky glass, so you couldnt get a perfect </p></li><li><p>reflection, and dressed them up with window treat-ments, Pheiffer says. Its become a unique piece of large art work.</p><p>Watson says when people enter her basement, they often mistake the mirrors for windows. Pheiffer says the mirrors give the wall texture and dimen-sion.</p><p>Adding texture, instead of color, is another way to display big art without overtaking the room. </p><p>In the Watson home, Pheiffer added huge, wood panels to a wall and also surrounded a flat-screen television with tiles. Once it was framed out, Pheiffer says it looked like artwork.</p><p>Another unconventional type of large art enjoy-ing a surge in popularity is clocks.</p><p>They are very practical, but if you notice the framing and the detail on the clock, you can see how its art, Pheiffer says. We recently put a clock up in a clients house that was 60 inches in diameter.</p><p>For the last couple of years, if you go into stores or look at catalogs there are huge sections of clocks theyre metal, wood, iron; sometimes they have glass on the back. Its amazing with what theyve come up with in terms of clocks.</p><p>Its a different form of art, instead of doing just your typical framed or canvassed art, Pheiffer says.</p><p>Michelle Ethridge-Craycraft of InStyle Interiors recently worked with a client who changed her din-ing room into a lounge area.</p><p>There was a big painting in the room, and Eth-ridge-Craycraft decided not to hang the piece.</p><p>It looked so good just leaning against the wall, she says. Its a large piece, but its not overpowering because it matches the dcor so well.</p><p>Matching the dcor in the room is a surefire way to make sure your art doesnt completely dominate the space, says Ethridge-Craycraft.</p><p>Weiss Worthington cottage features hundreds of pieces of art, both large and small.</p><p> No one piece is overpowering, yet every time you enter one of the rooms a new painting or sculpture seems to catch your attention.</p><p>It took quite a while to place everything, and Im sure Ill keep adding pieces as I fall in love with them, Weiss says. Like I said, if its a piece you love youll find room for it. </p></li><li><p>WBNS-10TV morning news anchor Jeff Hogan is a man on the go. He covers breaking news in central Ohio, and has competed in more than 25 triathlons and marathons. Hogan loves all aspects of sports watching, reporting and </p><p>competing. He covered sports for 11 years before switching to news. News had always been in the back of his mind, so when the opportunity presented itself, he took it. It was about time I got a big-boy job, jokes Hogan. But, if given the opportunity, Hogan also could be a professional </p><p>napper. He can fall asleep anywhere, anytime. Jeanne, his wife of 14 years, will attest to it. </p><p>At Home With</p><p>16 Central Ohio Home &amp; Garden SPRING 2012</p><p> StORy by RebeCCa walteRS PHOtOS by jameS d. deCamP</p><p>Jeff HoganSalmon rice </p><p>aSparaguS waS a big hit i baked it in </p><p>parchment paper all together So </p><p>when it came out, it waS thiS reStaurant-</p><p>quality meal.</p></li><li><p>Central Ohio Home &amp; Garden magazine sat down with the couple to find out what happens when the cameras arent rolling and its just time at home with the family.</p><p>H&amp;G: Describe a typical day for you.</p><p>Jeff: Half my day is done before people shower. It is pretty fast paced until mid-morning. We are on the air for two hours and 35 minutes, so I pick my bathroom breaks wisely. The days are long and the hours are odd, but that was part of the whole switch (from sports to news). In hindsight now, its perfect so I can </p><p>spend time with my kids.I enjoy being a part of the way </p><p>people start their day. People come up to me and say I woke up with you this morning, or You were in my bedroom this morning, and I say Dont tell my wife. </p><p>H&amp;G: After a busy day, whats your favorite room in your house to relax? </p><p>Jeanne: Its Jeanne time. Jeff: After work its some kind of </p><p>physical activity running, biking, golf or something around the house. Home is a weigh station Im here changing gear, grabbing golf clubs or getting some shorts to go running, swimming, biking. I enjoy doing things around the house, mowing the grass.</p><p>H&amp;G: You still havent told readers what you do to relax.</p><p>Jeff: All that doesnt sound relaxing? Honestly, my relaxing time is between dinner and bedtime, and spending time with my girls and whatever they want to do. We played shoe hockey on the hardwood floors last night. That was fun. </p><p>H&amp;G: A favorite spot in the house?</p><p>Jeanne: If he sits down, he falls asleep.</p><p>Jeff: Yes, if I sit down, I fall asleep. </p><p>Jeanne: He has two speeds stop and go hes either asleep or training for a marathon.</p><p>Jeff: Shes right I work hard, play hard. But, to relax, I cook. So its the kitchen, and the best part would be making something to eat that my girls like.</p><p>H&amp;G: Do you enjoy gardening, cooking, working on things around the house?</p><p>Jeff: I consider myself the Schneider (the super on One Day at a Time) to a fault. I refuse to call a handyman until something gets out of control. </p><p>I (we) painted almost the whole </p><p>Central Ohio Home &amp; Garden SPRING 2012 17</p><p>Hogan clips recipes by The </p><p>Columbus Dispatch </p><p>food writer Robin Davis.</p></li><li><p>56 Central Ohio Home &amp; Garden SPRING 2012</p><p>The Hogan family from left to right Jeff, Skyler, Kate and Jeanne.</p></li><li><p>Central Ohio Home &amp; Garden SPRING 2012 19</p><p>house. It was brutal, but it was better than paying someone else to do it.</p><p>Gardening, not so much, I leave that to Jeanne.Cooking relaxes me, and I love making new </p><p>creations. I will try anything, but my girls will not. (The Columbus Dispatchs) Robin Davis is my inspiration. I clip recipes. </p><p>Jeanne: Its true. They are all in our pantry.H&amp;G: Do you cook together, or do you kick Jeanne </p><p>out of the kitchen? Jeff: Jeanne is in charge of the vegetables and the </p><p>fresh ingredients. Im in charge of the hearty main course. I dont measure anything, either.</p><p>Salmon rice asparagus was a big hit I baked it in parchment paper all together so when it came out, it was this restaurant-quality meal.</p><p>Jeanne: It was off the charts. He really shocked me with that one, and the girls liked it. Other meals (the girls) enjoy are his waffles and sweet potato pancakes. Nine times out of 10, the dishes are to die for; they are extraordinarily creative.</p><p>Jeff: Sometimes Ive gone into the pantry when seemingly we have nothing for dinner and come up with some pretty awesome stuff, just concocting.</p><p>H&amp;G: Tell readers something they dont know about Jeff Hogan.</p><p>Jeff: I can juggle, have a black belt in napping and drive a 12-year-old car that has a coat hanger holding up the tailpipe. (He drives a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that the family has nicknamed Chitty Chitty, Bang Bang and the Toilet Bowl.)</p><p>I have delivered doughnuts, paved driveways, installed satellite dishes and worked in construction with my dad.</p><p>I have kept every single press pass I ever used.I am an ordinary person with an extraordinary job.Jeanne: Hes a great snow skier. He has </p><p>snowboarded in Canada over undetonated explosives. He looks for hills and mountains that say Do not go beyond this point. </p><p>He also donates a lot of his time for good causes. It makes me feel good that hes out there. </p><p>it waS about time i got a big-boy job, jokeS hogan, who haS kept all of hiS preSS paSSeS. </p></li><li><p>Jan BenadumColdwell Banker King Thompsonwww.JanBenadum.com</p><p>614-206-3373</p><p>M...</p></li></ul>
