After sharing a small lot modern farmhouse last week (thank you all for always helping the blog grow by sharing the posts with your followers on Pinterest and Instagram – you guys really make this community and I appreciate each and every one of you!), I honestly couldn’t be happier today sharing a home that is definitely gorgeous but also feels extra special because it was designed by a dear interior designer that I admire both professionally and personally. Get to know Laura Davidson of Dwellings a little better… I’m sure you will appreciate her talent as much as I do!
“Hey there! My name is Laura Davidson and I’m an interior designer based in Grand Rapids Michigan, with a design studio Dwellings. Thank you so much for taking the time to peruse this project!
Our client purchased 76 acres of land in 2013, and on it resides the original barn, full of character and set the tone for the development of the property. We remodeled the barn with white board and batten, refurbished the original metal roof and added massive gray barn doors. Fast forward two years, and the team is assembled for building this family country estate. Visbeen Architects handled the architecture, and Tim Nagelkirk from Colonial Builders partnered with me to take the plan from paper to this wonderful family home.
We were honored to be selected as the 2017 Cosmopolitan Home of the Year. It was a labor of love for a wonderful family!”

Main Kitchen Island Design: “The main kitchen island was designed by me, and we had our cabinet maker company build it. The countertop is Cerused Oak and the base is painted in Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee. The X-Base is a subtle farmhouse theme in the house (a nod to barn doors). The homeowner has a large family and I wanted to offer them a family gathering area, therefore the island offers seating on both sides.” – Laura Davidson of Dwellings.
