Eifler Associates

Door County Retreat
Juddville, Wisconsin

The Cottage is located on the western side of the Door County Peninsula with spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the setting sun. Eifler & Associates and the client elected to design the summer home using materials primarily from local sources, emphasizing a regionalistic approach to building.

The building is oriented to views of the lake to the west with extensive use of windows and doors, whereas the entry side, to the east, is characterized by cedar siding and long, narrow “strip” windows, for privacy and energy efficiency. Natural materials such as stone from nearby Sturgeon Bay, cedar, and Douglas fir are used throughout as interior and exterior finishes to further reinforce the connection between the inhabitants and the natural setting. The home is designed to be in conformance with Wisconsin’s new stringent energy standards.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An amazing rug can entirely change the design of a room. There are a few great design elements of this particular rug. The bold colors of the rug allow it to function as art. They also make it possible to have a room filled with neutral furniture that still stands out. And the stripes elongate the room and draw your eye towards the floor. Geometric rugs and colorful woven rugs are other great choices for a floor piece.
This is so simple and warm and clean. The rug absolutely makes the room.
Becky Harris added this to Dazzle Them With a Rug
This oversized area rug marks the boundaries of the lounging area, and the strips draw the eye outside to the view.

Door solutions + really like the sliding panels. Easier than bifolds. Nice in the light timber colour. Could be timber of white aluminium. Nice glass panels above the doors.

Don't love the picture....just saving b/c of "square large floor cushion"....idea for something like that to lay/ lounge on in front of fireplace with laptop....could be round or rectangular that fits under a piece of furniture and can be pulled out when needed (or always displayed on floor)?!?

Stripes are a great way to create the illusion of a longer, larger space. In this shot, contrasting colors and widths make the room-sized floor covering a visually arresting design element.
