Michigan ResidenceTraditional Bedroom, Detroit
David Reeve Architectural Photography; This vacation home is located within a narrow lot which extends from the street to the lake shore. Taking advantage of the lot's depth, the design consists of a main house and an accesory building to answer the programmatic needs of a family of four. The modest, yet open and connected living spaces are oriented towards the water.
Since the main house sits towards the water, a street entry sequence is created via a covered porch and pergola. A private yard is created between the buildings, sheltered from both the street and lake. A covered lakeside porch provides shaded waterfront views.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Add height. There’s a common saying that applies to small rooms: When you can’t build out, build up. Loft beds are great space-savers in small bedrooms, and built-in cabinets and drawers can stretch a room’s floor plan.To create visual depth, use off-white on the walls and a crisp white for the built-ins. Finish off the look with colorful bedding — perhaps in patriotic hues — and your small bedroom will make a big statement.Similar paint color to try: Summer White from Sherwin-Williams.
Even a single quilt can be that one magical thing. Sure, this is a really efficient use of space. But that Americana quilt totally wakes up the room.
