Green Lake Home
I have been blessed that I was allowed to create this house! I had worked with these clients in the past, and when they asked if I would do a new house for them, it was an honor. My clients allowed me so much creative freedom which in turn brought out the best in everyone.
We started with an amazing canvas in the lot itself, with a challenging grade. The home sits so perfectly on the lot, which we designed to take advantage of the view and to accommodate a pool. The house is light and fresh, with green windows and green undertones in the roof. The galvanized gutters and downspouts maintain the fresh feel.
Our clients are so generous with their time and spaces, and we wanted a home that would allow them to entertain, but feel comfortable for their family at the same time. The flow of the home works so well and the spaces are defined just enough.
The home for me took on a vision immediately. Working through the details of the house design, cabinetry and kitchen design, surfaces, appliances, plumbing and lighting were effortless.
It was so rewarding during the last several weeks of the project to see all of the decisions made over the previous months take shape and come to life. The final details make the magic of the house, not to mention the furnishings, rugs, lamps, accessories, drapes, blinds and art. I had been ordering and selecting for quite some time and it was so exciting to put it all together. Almost everything came from Dwellings.
This project incorporated a great team of people. From the Kerry Fitspatrick- home designer, Tim Verstrate- builder, and all of the trades, it was well orchestrated. Photography by Patrick Gietzen

Many years ago I wandered into Dwellings and discovered what I had been looking for, for so long. I have tried many different furniture stores and many different designers in the past 20 years but when I walked through the doors of Dwellings I knew that I had made a connection. The warmth and friendliness of the store was equally matched by Laura and her staff. Over the past several years I have used Laura exclusively for all my decorating and designer needs. Laura has remodeled many areas of my current home. I’m a very busy person who likes change in my home but doesn’t have time to go out and shop. It’s so easy with Laura. All I have to do is stop and talk to her about what I’m thinking of doing and before long she’s got fabrics and furniture to show to me. Laura takes the time to not only to get to know me but my entire family so she’s able to create a beautiful home for all of us. She can blend many different taste all under one roof. We recently did a total build project with Laura from the very beginning stages where she helped us select a builder, a house designer and then of course all the interiors needed. I totally trusted all of her choices and today have a spectacular warm welcoming home for my family and friends.
