power for your flowers

I’M PRONE TO ROMANTICISM, I confess, but spring feels like magic to me: the first fresh mint leaves in the backyard box of herbs, the tiny green shoots that push up between last year’s woody remnants of my hydrangeas, the unfolding of a hundred small wonders in a single day. My children slide on their rain boots (even on sunny days) and march through the yard, calling out reports about newly discovered tulip buds and “roly polies” (those charming bugs that curl up as soon as they’re touched). All this adds up to a whopping dose of beauty that is, for me, worth some serious investment in my yard and garden—a task I’ve grown to appreciate. I grew up in South Florida, where I’m pretty sure any old seed will germinate in…

Natalie Warady STYLIST “Living in a ‘decorated’ home can often be a fantasy when you have children,” says Natalie Warady. “Nearly everyone struggles with finishing their design dreams and embracing the way kids live at home.” But Warady’s work—styling the homes for “The Ultimate Weekend Hangout” (page 68) and “On The Bright Side” (page 74)—proves that you can get finishing touches that are beautiful and childproof. Warady’s go-to tip for outdoor parties is just as low-maintenance and lovely: “Create daybeds and places to hang out around the yard, so people have plenty of areas to lounge and chat.” Kathryn O’Shea-Evans WRITER A former senior editor at House Beautiful magazine, Kathryn O’Shea-Evans got a lesson in harnessing Colorado’s solar energy when she interviewed Boulder architect Dominique Gettliffe about passive solar design for “The Sun Tamer” (page…

an honest art

Giselle Hicks’ appreciation for the potter’s lifestyle—one she has found to be filled with art, food, and intimate gatherings—began before she even knew it, during childhood moments spent at her parents’ table in Southern California. “My mom and dad owned a restaurant, and we were a super food-centric family,” says the artist, now based in Aspen. “Sitting around the table was an important part of both daily life and special occasions.” A natural-born creative, Hicks knew she wanted to go to art school (her clue: “I always wanted to be alone, drawing, for hours,” she says), but she didn’t discover clay until she arrived at Syracuse University. There, in the ceramics department, she found an inviting community—and a warm reminder of her upbringing. “The potters I know like to eat together,…

natural instincts

When Jay and Susan Freeman bought their contemporary spec home in University Hills, the huge backyard was largely empty, save for a concrete patio accessed by a sliding glass door. So they hired Chris Turner and Paul Wrona of Denver’s Elevate By Design landscape architecture firm to reimagine the blank canvas as a space for entertaining. Their request was simple: “We wanted to make the outside align with the inside as much as possible,” Jay says. Crafted from a mix of wood, concrete, and metal, the resulting design contains three separate zones—outdoor kitchen, dining area, and fire pit with seating (next to a water feature that’s backlit at night!)—that blend into one welcoming space.

outdoor savvy

LOOK FOR ELEMENTS THAT CAN BE REUSED BUT IMPROVED. In this case, Wrona and Turner added a wooden deck to the existing concrete patio. PAY ATTENTION TO FLOW. Allowing for movement is key. This space may be small, but there are no cramped areas or potential bottlenecks. USE MATERIALS THAT RELATE TO THE HOUSE. The wood and metal used on the home’s exterior are similar to those in the landscape design. AND ECHO THE ARCHITECTURAL STYLE. Inspired by the home’s geometry, Wrona and Turner repeated clean lines in the landscape by choosing hardscapes with crisp right angles. USE PLANTS TO SOFTEN THE HARDSCAPES. Ornamental grasses, like Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass, provide an airy backdrop t o t he patio spaces.…
