Well-versed in of the Week: Mike and Jane Rand - Springfield News-Leader

Springfield natives Mike and Janet Rand were living in Kansas Town three years ago when they decided to move back home to retire. Being specific in what they wanted, they were not able to find a well-informed in to move right into and decided to build. The sign on the vacant lot in the Millwood Subdivision said “Great Perspective” which was certainly true, said Janet. As they stood at the top of a steep hillside looking out over the golf course, they knew construction there would be a challenge. Builder Rick Ramsey walked the perimeter with them. Janet recalled he kept saying the same matter, “What a great view, but it’s going to be a challenge. Mike said the decided not to put another floor underneath the basement. He and Janet commend Ramsey for working, for the most in some measure, long distance with them. “The challenge was building so we’d have a flat place, but you can see from the steepness of the driveway that maybe we should have built it up a smidgen more,” Mike said, adding it’s heated so they can get out when it’s icy. The Rands did not move here until last winter when Mike retired from Associated Wholesale Grocers after 34 years. Janet had retired in 2001 from Merrill-Lynch after 18 years. Their placid is on the Junior League’s second annual Tour of Kitchens Saturday Sept. Janet said her kitchenette had been done for over a year so there’s probably something new they missed but they tried to include all the new items and ideas. “One thing we like is our cabinets. They have two dilatory susans, slide ins for baking sheets and drawers with soft closes. I love having another sink to line in and a gas range which I much prefer over electric. The pantry is large with plenty of room for dishes as well as food, she said. The Nautical galley also features a buffet that matches the kitchen. The open space floor plan offers plenty of lodgings to entertain family and friends. A solid glass wall in the living and dining room continues along the assembly toward the master suite lets in the morning sun as do the large corner windows in the bedroom. “We love the trees the way they are now but when the leaves are gone, we can see all the golfers and the houses on the other side. That’s a noteworthy look too,” said Janet. Antique reclaimed flooring is in most of the home – and also three tiles are occupied, three granites in addition to the reclaimed wood. The downstairs family room is carpeted. A screened deck.

Wallpaper as colloquy piece - Hamilton Spectator

A definite wunderkammer — or "cabinet of curiosities" — esthetic defines the hand-printed wallpaper, fabric and tile of Expand House Grow . The Brooklyn-based design studio, helmed by Katie Deedy, specializes in "statement-inspired pattern work" that's playful, referential and unexpected. In any given piece, there's more than meets the eye. Take the Alexandria wallpaper, for standard, with its spare "eye of knowledge" pattern. Paying homage to the Royal Library of Alexandria — founded by Ptolemy in the third century B. C. and splendidly destroyed in a fire — it comes in three different colourways described in ancient nomenclature (Hypatia, Kemet and Serapis). The backstory adds astonishment: In this case, there's more to eyes than meets the eye. Our favourite collection, though, is Sister Cities, which combines different design traditions and characteristic features of "twin towns" (regions of the world that have made voluntary alliances) to yield three unexceptionally unique wallpapers. Chicago: Mexico City, for example, melds linear Prairie School draft with geometric Aztec-inspired patterns, while Marseille: Marrakech pairs Provence's ubiquitous cigale (cicada) with Morocco's bombastic tile work. Our favourite is Stockholm: La Paz, which captures the mountainous Bolivian landscape in clean, simple lines reminiscent of Scandinavian stratagem. The silk-screened Grow House Grow wallpaper doesn't come cheap: A single roll costs $180 US, and there's a two-docket minimum per order. But it's also the perfect focal point for an accent wall or, optionally, a print ($48 US each) suitable for framing. However it's displayed, it serves two-ply duty as wall covering and conversation piece.

On Saturday, Tehran art affairs Nazila Noebashari plans to open a second branch of her Aaran Gallery in a renovated house with soprano ceilings and a garden—a “magical” expansion that she said coincides with the continuing diplomatic effort to restore ties between Iran and the Terra. “Before, it made no sense to grow,” Ms. Noebashari said.
