Gaining a fresh perspective, a young family’s move from the city to one of the country’s best places to raise children also provided them with the western shores of lake Michigan, well-developed urban forests, and a whimsical backyard. This return to pure living was the inspiration for uncovering the charm of a 1904 cottage by stripping away a thirty-year-old partial renovation. The bathroom transformations bring light and charm into petite spaces and serve as everyday reminders of the harmony that can be found between the past and present.
