Our Furniture Plan for a California Costal Meets Modern Scandinavian Home in Lovely Traverse City


We've been hard at work on this project for awhile now and are excited to be nearing the finish line. Orders have been placed and pieces are gradually arriving and being carefully inspected at our warehouse to be stored until the big installation day.

The project scope was to furnish and decorate four spaces in this newly built Traverse City house, including their living room, primary bedroom, guest room, and lower level TV area.

The client's style is a blend of Californian costal and modern Scandinavian, which we were super pumped about! The couple wanted a neutral palette with layers of texture, plus a nice blend of wood and metal.

The Living Room Plan


The living room will feature two spindle lounge chairs opposite a sofa with beautiful clean lines. The show stopper of the space will be chunky, modern 46" waxed oak coffee table, and we've blended in a nice variety of accent lighting. We've since changed a few of the pieces from the original style board, but the overall design will remain.

The Primary Bedroom

The primary has beautiful structural features, including a brick accent wall and reclaimed natural wood floors, which is always a treat to work with. The couple has a giant walk in closet not pictured in the layout below.

Since there wasn't much need for storage in the master bedroom, we designed a seating area with a large comfy sofa—perfect for morning coffee or reading with the kids. We again utilized a blend of different wood species, stains, and metal finishes, and kept an overall neutral palette with grays and taupes, accented with a bit of blush.

The Guest Bedroom

The guest bedroom currently functions as storage for the family's impressive board game collection, but with a stunning view of Lake Michigan, it will soon be a perfect retreat for the family's guests.


The color palette for this space is mainly black and white, tone-on-tone (you know me!), allowing the beautiful view to remain the focal point.

We've designed a sweet little seating area where guests can enjoy morning coffee or an evening drink, and since there's no closet storage, we've included a fun little garment rack for guests to hang clothing.

Along the back wall, you can our clients have an extensive collection of board games. We still needed a place for these to live, so we've specified two dramatic, oversized pine bookshelves which will span the back wall and look a bit more pulled together than the current cubbies.

The Lower Level Living Room

The lower level had several existing pieces that we worked around, but we added in some fun storage and accent seating.


So our plan here: instead of a coffee table, we're using a chunky modular ottoman in a fun striped fabric, a credenza to house snacks and be a home for their popcorn machine, as well as a modern walnut TV stand to live beneath their giant TV.

For artwork, the plan is to create a fun gallery wall surrounding the TV, which will carry over onto the opposite wall, making it a playful space to watch movies or hang out as a family.
