FURNISHINGS + STYLING

A relaxed year-round home by Lake Michigan.

 

This new build at the beautiful Cottages at Harbor Shores was a blank canvas, and though it is in a lake shore community, the clients wanted to make sure it was livable all year for them. Subtle nods to water, tranquility and a balanced mix of materials and styles will keep this design relevant and flexible for years to come, and personal touches make the home feel like it has been curated for years.

A historical home gets a new look.

 

The young family that purchased this early 20th century home had a strong vision, and had already removed walls to open up three smaller rooms into one open space. Paladin came in to design the custom-built cabinetry in the kitchen, creating a layout and flow for the newfound space. Material selection and application was fun, as we wanted to make sure that the windows were open and able to bring in a lot of light. The Carrara quartz kept a clean surface that did just this. The pantry was a fun detail, almost hidden from a quick glance as it matched the walls and was tucked into an existing opening left over from the original space. The back of the pantry touches the back of the built-in shown in the living room, another custom design. This room holds a lot of toys, books and activities, and creating a nice place to display the couple's fun and interesting collection while still hiding away some kid items was a great fit. This fresh take on a classic home allowed the home's original details to shine, while complimenting them with clean lines and a simple palette, creating the perfect space for a modern family to grow.

 The raised quartz backsplash adds an elegant detail, and is also a functional way to keep the kitchen walls low-maintenance.

 Opening the smaller rooms up to each other allowed this family to spend time together during meal prep + clean up, and kept the kitchen at the heart of the family’s activities.
