Season of Growth

Savor the slow life in a lakeside cottage that was revamped with rustic charm and modern touches in just eight weeks.

PATIO PERFECTION. These French bistro-style dining chairs add a dose of cottage charm to the patio area. Kate bought the chairs from Wayfair for less than half the cost of near-identical designer chairs.

OPPOSITE| VACATION CALLING. Guests can follow the red-brick path to the front steps of the Leo Cottage, which is surrounded by leafy greenery and an award-winning garden.

SMALL SPACES. Believe it or not, this humble corner used to be a hallway before Kate set her sights on it. The barn door is a stylish space-saver. Textured mirrors, a spiral woven rug and an eight-bulb rope chandelier enhance the cottage’s earthy, organic charm.

When flowers begin to bloom and fresh greenery inspires a change of scenery, Kate Marker, designer and owner of Kate Marker Interiors, and her family of four hop in the car and head north, bound for Union Pier, Michigan. They escape to their vacation home, a 1,400-square-foot bungalow just two hours outside their hometown of Barrington, Illinois, where they happily trade asphalt roads for streets of gravel and towering skyscrapers for mom-and-pop shops.
