Mequon, Wisconsin, United States
Constructed almost entirely of local stone, this 6,800 square foot lodge appears organic and at peace with its surroundings near Lake Michigan. The residence sits high on a forested bluff and according to architect Wade Weissmann, was carved out of a large estate that had originally been master planned by famed designer Jens Jensen. It terms of details for the project, Wade Weissmann revealed that a traditional Adirondack palette was employed for all the millwork and that the owner’s love for natural materials is evident throughout. Peabody’s Interiors was commissioned to design a warm and inviting interior with rich textures of stone and wood details. According to Peabody’s Interiors, “rustic and natural elements are reflected in the furnishings with hints of their favourite leathers, everywhere from accent rugs to sofas. It’s all brought together by a palette of rich earth-tones, which also acts as the perfect backdrop for highlighting the contemporary fixtures and colourful works of art.” Photography by David Bader.
