Designed by J Visser Design, this transitional small family home, located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Holland, showcases neutral coastal interiors with 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 color palette truly inspired by Lake Michigan.
Transitional Small Home with Coastal Interiors
This is not a very spacious home, therefore expanding its outdoor spaces was a smart decision made by the architects and designer. The front porch features comfortable furniture and an irresistible porch swing.
Pale Gray Kitchen
This kitchen is full of inspiring ideas! I love the casual and neutral atmosphere of this space.
The pendants above island are the “Ralph Lauren Andover Pendant”.

Great design choices don’t need to be complicated or expensive. In this powder room, the designer mixed some high and low items that surely make this space feel very appealing and welcoming to any guest.

The family room is where everyone goes at the end of the day to relax, talk or just spend some time together. I am loving the colorful fabrics against the neutral colors.

Small Space Solutions
You have to get creative if you live in a small house. Closet laundry rooms are a good option, especially if you want to have a laundry room on the second floor. This will save you space, money and make your life a little easier.

The master bedroom is pure serenity! I am loving the natural hues and soft textures you find here.

Back of the House
This home was brilliantly designed for this small lot.
Impressive water views can be enjoyed from the upper floor and from this large balcony.
A fully equipped patio is located just outside the kitchen, on the side of the house. This space is perfect for entertaining and very low-maintenance!
A beautiful view of the house at night. I have to say that it’s easy for me to fall in love with any house with picked fence. Aren’t they extra charming?
How are you doing today? The weather is getting colder here and fall has completely arrived. I am planning on going to an orchid near by with the kids during the weekend to get some apples. I want to bake some apple pies with them… I love the smell of cinnamon and apple around the house. It brings that “home-sweet-home feeling that makes you love your home even more. 🙂
I hope you have an excellent day and we will talk again tomorrow.
Take care, my friends!
