Antique and new furnishings create an eclectic cottage mix in David Bradley’s home in the Michigan beach town of Saugatuck.
When David purchased the 1,100-square-foot house, its charm had been stripped away. “It was vinyl-sided and very linear. It reminded me of a mobile home,” says designer John Cannarsa, who reworked the floor plan for better function and returned the house to its 1950s cottage style—with modern accents.
John moved the entryway, added a porch, and expanded the kitchen and dining room within the footprint. New painted wood floors, wall panels and wainscoting deliver inviting texture. A refurbished stove and retro-style refrigerator highlight the kitchen’s throwback design.
