[nest] Inside Innes Station

11 June 2010 by Denise Grays 18 Comments

As a lifelong Wichitan, I’ve watched Old Town evolve and develop over the years. Time passes and formerly polluted ground becomes shops and clubs, and neglected warehouses become trendy loft living spaces. I was curious about what the living spaces were really like on the inside. Not just an empty model space a property manager would show you, but a home once someone moves in and breathes life into the place.

I met artist Kyle Kolkovich at a tweetup at Old Chicago in Old Town, where she mentioned she lived in Innes Station. I thought, what a great opportunity to get a peek inside and share with verb[ICT] readers!

Kyle and her husband Richard were kind enough to allow me to ask a few questions and show off their home.

Where are you and your husband from originally?

My husband Richard and I are both originally from Georgia. He grew up just on the Georgia/South Carolina line. I grew up just north of Atlanta on a fibers farm.

What kind of work do you both do?

Currently I’m a full-time fiber artist creating accessories for home and life in my apartment studio. I used to design bedding, fabric, and carpet. Richard is a software developer. He works from home.

How did you find Innes Station?

When we first visited Wichita we loved the Old Town area, so when we looked for apartments we decided to find one in that area. Actually, I called our apartment building and asked if they had something in the size we needed and applied for it without ever seeing the place. We saw it the day we moved in. Luckily, we were happy with it.

How do you describe the style of decor of your home?

I would describe as comfortable, modern, and eclectic. We like the bold bright colors and graphic prints that modern design has, but love the comfortable, homey feel of casual design. We have many items that have been given to us that we’ve made work by refinishing, painting, or recovering. I think decor-wise, we relate with Crate and Barrel, though we own a lot of Ikea.

The Kolkovichs enjoy the ample space loft living provides and the downtown location is great for being in the midst of entertainment and cultural events. Kyle mentioned that many of their neighbors are not originally from Wichita, but from larger cities. Hopefully downtown loft living will catch on with native Wichitans as well.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that
    not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of Wordpress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction
    of a good platform.

    time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment.
    Is there any approach you’ll be able to
    take away me from that service? Thanks!

    For some women, losing hair is a symptom of a medical problem.
    However, genetics and male sex hormones do not fully explain the exact mechanism that will cause hair loss to start.

    These also emit the full spectrum of light, on an even basis.

    The running cost of these lights is less than half of HID or other types
    of lighting systems. They produce the two main wavelengths that plants need for their growth,
    which are the blue light and the red light.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment.
    I believe that you should write more on this topic, it may
    not be a taboo matter but typically people
    don’t discuss such subjects. To the next!
    Cheers!!
