This whimsical family cottage was designed by architects J. Visser Design in collaboration with Francesca Owings Interior Design, located in Holland, a city on the shore of Lake Macatawa, Michigan. Built by Insignia Homes, this residence is a showcase of timeless architecture coupled with an elegant emphasis on outdoor living. The home’s warmth comes from an abundance of natural light highlighted by a mix of tactile and natural materials, including hand-planed hardwood floors and a palette truly inspired by Lake Michigan.
