From Film to Fruition

I’ve watched some movies over and over again, just to see my favorite character: the house.

Living La Vida Local

When walking through the Block 42 condominium home of her clients Gary and Janie McCurdy, interior designer Janis Bevers has two main points to make: an urban lifestyle is now not only possible but is fast becoming a choice of many Oklahomans; and it is also possible to create the space that reflects that lifestyle by using the talents of local artisans and craftspeople.

Lucky Number 13

There are certain occupational hazards that accompany particular lines of work. For someone who is passionate about interior design, owning a fine home décor and furniture store is dangerously akin to being the carb addict who owns the cinnamon roll shop.

Inspiration Nation

When it comes to home improvement projects, I am a dedicated do-it-yourselfer. With the help of my dear husband, I’ve tackled everything from installing bathroom tile to refinishing hardwood floors. But when I say I can do it, I am compelled by journalistic integrity to point out that just because one can do something doesn’t mean one should.

Building on a Concept

Homebuilders and craftsmen, like professionals in any field, seek opportunities to create something of lasting value. It is a desire to contribute, to be a part of a project that will endure.

Long Days Forgotten

Slice Magazine’s True Brew Release Party

Mine Field

One of the oldest gemstones known to man, turquoise is prized for its distinct blue-green color.

The ABCs of Animal Rescue

Whether you’re looking to adopt a pet or trying to help a homeless stray, there are many options and resources for doing so in central Oklahoma.

Global Market

Worldfest, the annual event benefiting Oklahoma-based World Neighbors, is a shopping mecca with thousands of hand-crafted, fair-trade products that will give you a leg up on that coming-sooner-than-you-know-it holiday gift gathering.

Shelter from the Storm

We live in a state that, for all its progress in recent decades, continues to rise toward the top of another statistical ranking – 11th in the U.S. for the number of women killed by men.

This One’s for the Cowboy

It has emerged over time as one of the leading repositories of Western art and culture in the world from its perch atop Persimmon Hill, yet this bastion of art and culture has never held an event for its own benefit.

Diamond Anniversary

Still stately after all these years, the Civic Center Music Hall turns 75 this month, and the occasion will be marked with a spectacular event worthy of the treasured performance hall. From past to present to future, the show most definitely will go on.

Pave the Way

As my children and I get back into the school routine, I am reminded of how many children are unprepared for their educational careers.

Intimate View

As longtime drinker William Wilson began trying to regain his sobriety and rebuild his life, he realized the importance of mutual support among recovering alcoholics.

Square Deal

To raise funds for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s creative agenda, 150 of Oklahoma’s finest artists are putting their best square feet forward.

Fish Tale

In a landlocked prairie state, any restaurant with a focus on seafood faces the inevitable questions: Is it fresh enough?

Hello, Governor!

Back in 1997, Friends of the Mansion, a non-profit group dedicated to restoring and preserving the Oklahoma Governor’s Mansion, started a little thing called Septemberfest.

In the Spotlight

Our state fair is a great state fair – according to Scott Munz, who’s had 24 years of insider’s perspective.

New Rules of the Road

Most of us have a limited amount of time to work out, and we shouldn’t waste a second of it on outdated facts. To clear the confusion, here’s a quick primer...

You Pay for What You Get

In this world of instant gratification via the internet, we are seeing a real change in product and what we have to pay for delivery.

A Breath of Fresh Air

The sky is blue; the city is green. Pittsburgh, once infamous for steel mills with smokestacks belching smog and smut, has transformed itself as it transitioned away from an industry-based economy.

Setting the Table

Inspired by our farm-fresh fashion shoot, this setup of homemade quilts and wildflowers helps make a country feast extra-festive.

Welcome to the West

Filled with art and memorabilia, the house on the hill at Express Ranch reflects Bob Funk’s hardworking, joyous life.

Interpretations of a Heritage

For this quartet of Western artists, being a part of the land and lifestyle they portray adds extra resonance to their spirited creations in various media.

Farm to Fashion

No catwalks? No problem. With cooler weather allowing a more robust mix of textures and fabrics, this fall’s rich, polished ensembles look stunning in any setting.

What We’re Talking About...

A dash of this, a jigger of that - a brief collection of trivia, miscellany, current events, tidbits of popular culture and other ephemera that we think are cool.

A Reinvented Classic

Generations have been raised on blue boxes of mac and cheese. Now every restaurant, from high-end to local diner, has their version of this American classic. As you can probably guess, this gal cannot turn down a decadent, bubbling baking dish, so here is my version!

Tune It Up!

When OKC Philharmonic Executive Director Eddie Walker says, “This seems to be one of those seasons where all the stars kind of lined up,” music lovers across the metro should take notice.

High-Tech Cowboys

The cowboy of 2012 is about technology, genetics and breeding the best stock.

Beginning a Photographic Journey

Author and photographer M.J. Alexander has been here, there and everywhere in Oklahoma. The unrehearsed, authentic experiences that have lingered form the basis for this new series.
