Lake Bluff, Illinois
This suburban addition and renovation breathes new life into once-tired interiors while respecting – and even celebrating – the best of tradition. Consistently-detailed architectural features and materials, from custom-crafted millwork and trims to flooring, are the keys to indistinguishable transitions between old and new spaces. As well, nature is welcomed at every opportunity, through abundant, undressed windows that invite gorgeous landscaped views inside. From its bay-windowed new potting room to the French doors gracing its intimate library and dining space, this home honors its owners' relationship to nature.
