A 1965 European Style cottage located in the unique Williams Creek neighborhood had suffered years of neglect and at one point, the possibility of a complete tear down was discussed. Insert new high‐profile art patrons paired with an uninhibited seasoned designer and the idyllic house is once again a storybook cottage and a welcomed rebirth to surrounding neighbors.

Perfectly suited to the clients, the formal interior layout provides the necessary walls for displaying the well curated art collection. Thoughtful  attention  was given to every detail of this renovation. Finishes, custom furniture and casework were balanced to compliment both the art and the bones of the original house 

A bold design move to paint a library space teal was presented to the couple. First met with hesitation but fully trusting their interior designer, the finished space ensued a wow-factor of sophistication the modern couple loves.

This lake house had originally been two separate structures that are now joined, an original cottage and an adjacent out building once connected by a porch. The new remodel has married the two buildings with the addition of a central living room. The cottage volume contains the kitchen, dining spaces and entry on the first level. On the second-floor lives bedrooms with porch access, individual bathrooms and a casual family room.  

The former out building houses the master bedroom with an ensuite bath featuring a bathing tub with direct views to Lake Michigan. A soaring fireplace flanked by floor to ceiling window walls is the anchoring feature of the new living room. A covered porch directly from the living room offers a second fireplace and provides a protected respite.  

All interior finishes, furnishings and fabrics echo a peaceful ‘Zen’ making the project a tranquil haven to be enjoyed all year.

This grand house was brought to fruition by a decade of planning, collecting, designing and building. The design was influenced by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s neoclassical estate in Paris. Much of the home’s design focus was based on the proper display of the owner’s vast antique collection. Careful collaboration was considered when finding a home to accommodate each piece. When the project completed every displayed painting, treasured antique and heirloom seamlessly found its place within the space it inspired. 

Design highlights include clean neutral main level walls adorned with white moldings which are punctuated with soft hues of lavender, teal, gold and champagne. Custom pattern rugs, floor to ceiling draperies and hand painted wallpapers reinforce the specific style of the house. Distinct seating arrangements throughout the residence allow areas for reading, relaxing and conversation. Accessories and furnishings were thoughtfully curated to blend harmoniously and provide a timeless aesthetic to the design.

Rowland Design collaborated closely with the client’s contractor to invent a new custom home that was smart, energy efficient and stylish. The family’s Kentucky and Florida roots were considered during the design development resulting in an eclectic and contemporary aesthetic suited for the young family.

The client desired a home that blended seamlessly with the existing character of its surrounding village neighborhood. A soft neutral color palette was used cohesively through out the home and provided a back drop for bolder feature walls. Key finishes such as wide plank oak floors, black iron and gold fixtures added a layer of sophistication and warmth.  

The new build has a thoughtful blend of public and private spaces. Large windows combined with a generous screen porched offers a connection with the surrounding landscape.

Nestled in 50 acres of densely wooded land, this unique residence overlooks a private lake surrounded by gently sloping terrain. Designed in 1964 by architect Don Wood, the dwelling shares the water with one other house both originally built as primary residences for young families.  

While embarking on the complete renovation and addition to this family home, it was paramount for the current designer to successfully retain the overall vernacular and character of the original design.

Rowland Design was commissioned to redesign an existing lake front home to accommodate a client’s outdoor lifestyle, and take better advantage of the resort-like site. The project required improving garage access as well as the reconfiguring of the major living spaces. While the exterior of the building remained mostly unchanged, the interior rooms were repurposed and reproportioned to create a contemporary water side environment. 

Existing home features such as the fireplace were removed or relocated to unblock views of the adjacent lake. Along with a host of other spaces, a new kitchen was created for the refresh positioning itself as the heart of the home.

Originally constructed in 1911, Rowland Design thoughtfully transformed this Warfleigh neighborhood vintage farmhouse. The interior was selectively demolished to make way for an updated plan catered for contemporary living while retaining character elements of the original building.

Second floor living space was repurposed for modern living. An intimate home office niche featuring a continuous window series was added to afford views of the front lawn. A field stone fireplace appropriate to the home’s vintage was also added and serves as a focal point for the central living space.
