THE FOUR SEASONS

This year-round room features windows that easily pop out during summer; welcoming the cool Michigan breezes.

  • Vintage trolley cart-turned-coffee table
  • Vermont Castings wood burning stove provides heat in the winter months.
  • Decorative pillow, repurposed from Tom’s Father’s old bachelor Manhattan Dry Cleaning laundry bag.
  • An old-school watering jug found new life as a lamp.

PLEASE HAVE A SEAT

James and Tom know that their guests tend to congregate in the kitchen, so seating is maximized.

  • Zinc tables are virtually indestructible and boast a rustic look – perfect features for a vacation home.
  • The breakfast nook is a cozy spot to drink a cup of joe and read the morning paper.

A WARM WELCOME

A space to maneuver one’s arrival with arms filled with packages and happy pets darting about.

  • Located just off the garage.
  • Abundant light keeps this space from feeling like a back hallway.
  • Plenty of seating and places to put packages down as you wrangle with boots and scarves.

LIGHT, FRESH AND HAPPY

This intimate living room measures 15 x 15, but the feel of the space is wide open.

  • The wall are bathed in Benjamin Moore, White Dove.
  • The painted brick fireplace and abundant wood details add texture and interest.
  • Tight-back sofas always look crisp.
