Lakeshore Cottage

The owners wanted their new home to feel inviting, family-friendly, and bright. Inside this modern farmhouse cottage is a light, crisp interior that is both approachable and high style. Finishes were kept intentionally simple so as not to distract from the view – the white walls and black windows emphasize the constantly-changing hues of Lake Michigan. Whitewashed wood flooring runs throughout, providing character and warmth, and giving the home a casual “shoes-off” vibe. The simple black-and-white backdrop in each room is fresh and sophisticated, creating a bright canvas for patterned tile, colorful artwork, and carefully chosen accessories.
