Okay guys. we’ve made it to the end. the last reveal. well, at least the last reveal for the remodel of the existing spaces for this house. (see how i’m not committing that there won’t be more in the future?) the finale for the midwest malibu cottage is our family room, its story is now live at the front + main blog, and i’m a little at a loss for words (😱) because it’s a little bittersweet reaching this moment! two years ago this week we saw this house for the very first time and today we celebrate achieving that goal we aspired to in the bathroom here on that sunny sunday afternoon. •

in our final room at our midwest malibu cottage we wanted to embrace our cali-quaint vibe in-full, one last time, as a means to combat the considerable darkness of this environment. we know we’ll spend a lot of time down here through the grey, limited-daylight midwest winters here, so we conceptualized a space that would feel like a beachside cabana, shaded from the summer heat and ready for lounging after a day in the sun. if you’ve stuck with us for a while, you can probably guess the formula: white and wood! but this time we’ve tried some new things since this is a unique space in our home. •

at the end of the project, we look back on the comments guests have made, and the most common word used by people who have come down here is “coastal”, so we’ll qualify our work as a success on execution toward concept, and maybe the most rewarding thing we’ve heard was when the countertop install guy walked down here and said, “i’ve never seen a basement like this in wisconsin.” 💪🏻
