A weekend house that is traditional and modern at the same and surrounded by ample greenery, this little delight in Jones, Michigan was designed for a busy Chicago couple who wished to escape the rush once in a while. A Searl Lamaster Howe Architects creation, the weekend house feels relaxing and inviting with a private façade draped in wood. As you step inside, darker shades take over as the slate flooring and dark stained oak usher in plenty of gray. The living space sits next to the kitchen on an elevated platform while the dining area and other social zones are neatly tucked behind.
A beautiful blend of light and dark wooden finishes can be found in every room of the house with floor to ceiling glass windows bringing in ample natural light. Décor in the living area is largely transitional in its style with a beautiful tufted coffee table in green at the heart of it all. On one side you can find the fireplace while the other three sides have glass walls that offer unabated views of the green landscape.
It is the levels above that contain the luxurious cabin-style bedrooms with modern rustic charm and bathrooms that promise to leave you rejuvenated as you take in the many sights and sounds outside. A spacious wooden deck with bright red chairs, smart workspaces and space-savvy walk-in closets complete a home that is both efficient and graceful.
