About the Home

The home at 2513 Ridgefield Road was built in the early 1970s and updated perhaps some 20 years ago. The interior today is filled with the current owner's eclectic mix and a continuum of primitive American to modern furniture, art, and creations. It is comfortable, colorful, sometimes overwhelming, and kitschy, hinting at the owner's Anglophilia. A life-long Missourian, the owner's collection and accumulation (or horde) of works include Regionalist and local art, artists you may recognize, friends’ artworks and photography, and farm and vintage furniture. Juxtaposed with mid-century clocks, advertising art, and tins, nearly everything has a Missouri or familial story that reminds the owner of road trips in the USA or English sojourns since the 1970s.

One framed shadowbox shows his mid-Missouri heritage with a painted tie rack made by his father for his new father-in-law in 1948, which includes a family tartan tie and photos of the owner as a child sitting at his grandparent's table with '50s-style curtains behind. The curtain fabric is now the shadowbox background and also covers a pair of pillows made by family friends on a nearby sofa. The memorabilia and history of the home's artifacts are sure to be interesting and evoke nostalgia.
