Welcome Back Cottage

Feeling some inspiration this morning and jumping back in after a really long nap.  A little client research along with some inspiration from my sweet wife on the current project we are working to complete.  This place on the southwest side of Michigan sparked some attention.  Simple yet crisp and creative.  White is king here, however they toned it down with stains and subtle accents in furnishings and cabinetry.
A make-up of fresh new contemporary design ideas while still incorporating the existing structure.

Scrap, clean, bolt and paint.  Well, not always that easy but as you can see they found a way to bring all those elements to life.  Exposed trusses, structural beam and pipe columns.
Check the old school roll-up shades in the windows.


The before and after.  Have that vision and stick with it.

Outdoor Details



This cottage is fresh.  Just check the setting/view above.  I sometimes feel like the wraparound porch can take away from the main house but with such a kickass setting you really can't go wrong here.  It comes across a little simplistic but they do transform the vibe with the barrel roof on the porch.  I also like the way the tight lines in the railing and roof play off of one another.  And finally to top it off, the rustic qualities of the stone work that seamlessly tie the patio to the wall and steps.

The Dog Stair



This is just out of control and totally hilarious.  A full on custom built set of stairs just for the dogs.  The designers killed it here incorporating the 2 sets side by side and tying all of the interior lines together.  The shapes and patterns from structure and furniture all play off one another.  The best part, in my opinion, is the handrail.  Safety first for the pooch.  You can also check this post over at Fred Flare.

The Sheep Cottage

A guest quarters/sheep shearers cottage with modern lines, rustic industrial finishes and crazy scenic views.  This place is hot.  Handcrafted details throughout from the metal shelving to the wood clad interior walls.


The volume is fresh and well showcased with geometric design.

The Long Library

A ton of books and limited space?  No problem here.  This long hall/corridor was quickly converted into a library with a few rows of shelving and a bench.  It ties in well with the badass, 100 year old mosaic flooring too.  Also a genius little design idea with the desk lamps on the ceiling.  A creative touch to providing directional lighting in the space.  This post also ran here.

Keyless




This is how you do keyless.  Check it.  August is the company putting this out later in the year.  It's pretty fresh.
