CONSIDERATIONS FOR YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE

Five Tips New Investors Should Know Securing your financial future

I

f you are just getting started on investing, it’s important to get a grasp on the basics. A proper perspective from the beginning may improve your opportunities for long-term investment success. Here are five concepts that can be helpful for new investors to understand: 1. IF YOU ARE YOUNG,TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE Building wealth through investing is not about getting rich quickly. Rather, it’s about taking advantage of what works best for your circumstances. If you have recently entered the workforce and desire to set money aside for the future, your biggest advantage is time. Earnings generated in your portfolio, even if modest in the beginning, can compound over time. Compound interest is a very powerful concept for investors. The more time you give your money to grow, the greater the potential for positive rewards.

2. BE PREPARED FOR MARKET SWINGS Any variable investment you choose – such as stocks, bonds or real estate – is subject to fluctuation. History shows that markets move up and down over time. Be prepared to see your portfolio suffer losses at various points throughout your investing life. Historically, markets have recovered from negative periods (although in some circumstances, individual investments such as a specific stock can suffer losses and never recover). Try to maintain a long-term view with your investments by not reacting to day-to-day events. If you have significant time to let your money work for you, this can be to your advantage. 3. FIND YOUR COMFORT LEVEL IN THE MARKETS Markets are unpredictable, so it’s important that you’re intentional about the level of risk you’re willing to accept. You can choose investments that are less susceptible to fluctuations if you wish. When selecting conservative investments, be sure to consider the effects of inflation. Otherwise you may inadvertently be taking on more risk than you realize. Or, if you are willing to ride those swings, you can take more risk with the hope of earning higher returns. But remember, there are no guarantees. To maintain a consistent investment approach, find a level of risk you can live with over the longterm and invest accordingly. 4. SPREAD YOUR WEALTH THROUGH ASSET ALLOCATION Asset allocation is the process of spreading your investment dollars across several categories of investments. The mix of categories, or asset classes, you own is an important factor to your overall portfolio performance. In other words, how you divide your money between stocks, bonds, cash, cash alternatives, mutual funds, and other asset classes will determine the outcome, and hopefully return, you realize. 8 | spring 2017

As you select your investments, consider dividing your money among asset classes that respond differently to market forces. This investment concept, called diversification, can help you minimize the effect of market swings. If your investments in one class are performing poorly, there’s potential for your investments in another class to be performing better. Ideally, gains in one class can help offset losses in another, which can help minimize the overall impact of volatility on your portfolio. 5. MAKE YOUR LONG-TERM FINANCIAL SECURITY A PRIORITY It can be challenging to focus on the long-term when you have other pressing financial obligations, such as paying off student loans or building an emergency fund. However, if you can allocate a small portion of your budget to your future goals, you may ease your financial burden down the road. Consider investing a percentage of each paycheck into a workplace retirement plan or an individual retirement account (IRA). You’ll become accustomed to living within the rest of your paycheck while the amount you have earmarked for retirement is given time to grow. A successful investor maximizes gain and minimizes loss. Though there can be no guarantee that any investment strategy will be effective, and all investing involves risk, keeping these basic principles in mind may help you invest more successfully. b

DISPATCHES FROM THE WORLD OF DESIGN

The Good Things in Life Luxury Evolution

W

hat are the good things in life? The post-bling luxuries of the ’80s and ’90s introduced luxury trends that come into clear focus while interior designers, architects, and custom home builders observe a shift of perception, lifestyle and value attitudes of their new clients. So, what does luxury mean now? Warren Buffet is known to say that “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” Can this be the mantra for a new millennium of designers and builders? Luxury as earlier defined conjured opulence, perhaps indulgence, and exclusivity. Fast forward to the present and luxury appears to resonate in terms like inspirational, meaningful, or experiential. Style dictations fade, granting license to figuratively and literally design for the way we aspire to live in a new sense at home. Luxury seems to imply appreciation and enjoyment derived from custom built environments by way of personalization that become the backdrops for memories and everyday simple pleasures. We are enjoying a revolution of luxurious expression more personal than displayed. Perhaps we pursue fewer things but more enriching experiences now while planning the renovation or building of our homes. Certainly millennial

10 | spring 2017

attitudes and baby-boomer reconsiderations of lifestyle have influenced our design blueprints in the quiet suburbs and bustling city centers alike. Longevity, alternative finishes, sustainable materials and production means are buzz words of the moment as we become familiar with the values they represent and are broadly more accessible. A blossoming supply of artistic resources has emerged purveying value-full home accoutrement with stories that resonate with users. Appliance and gadget gurus rejoice in technology that brings convenience to daily household routines. Precious time is freed to be spent on pursuits including family, home, travel, or creative exploration to name a few. Intimate interior spaces such as libraries for peaceful reading or writing, home studios for meditation and yoga, and sun-filled lofts for painting and crafts for example are designed-in for personal enjoyment. All adding up to the value of experiences at home not price tags.

Luxury, in the traditional sense is still evident to a certain degree as formulas for taste and style are highlighted by designers who influence the way our environments look, feel, and function. Retrospective and appreciative of the past, modern influencers deliver fresh interpretations and unique points of view. What came around goes around as design motifs of other eras are dusted off and re-applied in fresh context by a new generation of pioneers. Reclaimed with new, refined with industrial, precious with humble remixes shaken and poured become irreverently provocative recipes for unencumbered luxury coming to vivid life in experiential and immersive design vignettes of the stores, restaurants and hotels which we flock to near and far.

Just two, 30minute sessions a week to become a healthier, stronger, better you ...

Scratch below the golden surface of old luxury and reveal the hand of the maker and thoughtfulness of design and construction. The original principals of classic luxury still exist for those who appreciate them - the pursuit of fine craftsmanship, extraordinary detail, and quality defined by integrity with sincere commitment to craft. Grand Rapids is blessed with abundant visionary interior designers, furniture designers, architects, artists, craftsmen, and home builders who represent and sustain these qualities through preservation of local heritage.

As Grand Rapids and its environs enjoy proximity to pristine Midwest landscapes and natural features near which to build dream homes, it could also be said that luxury is derived from that beauty as well. b

2013, Brandi and Tim Engen purchased 76 acres of land in the southern part of Grand Rapids. On it, resides an old barn, full of character and charm. And now, a mere four years later, the site is also home to the “2017 Cosmopolitan Home of the Year.” The barn, remodeled for large gatherings and celebrations, still claims its initial appeal and character that served as the inspiration for the home. “The barn is original, over 100 years old. It began the dream and has morphed into the estate,” explained the owner Tim Engen. The estate, built by the partnership of the Engen family and Tim Nagelkirk of Colonial Builders, is nothing less than magnificent. With the architectural design by Wayne Visbeen, Visbeen Architects and interior design by Laura Davidson, owner and lead designer of Dwellings, the 10,275-square-foot home is stately, yet, it holds a warm and welcoming elegance. From every angle, inside and out, it is a sight to behold. The collaborative design process between the Colonial Builders team and Laura Davidson centered on making the house, above anything else, a family home. With five children, ranging in ages from 4 months to 9 years, the Engens needed functionality — perhaps the most important component for a peaceful household. When asked about the collaboration, Brandi articulated it quite perfectly, “With five boys, we just don't have time … and we don’t have the experience, or background. The team took care of the major decisions, and we just had to fine tune. Communication is key, especially in today’s day and age, I felt like this team was unmatched; we communicated well; everyone was proactive.” The team came together in a fashion that was meant to be. Davidson previously worked with the extended Engen family. Based on suggestions from her sister-in-law, Brandi decided to visit Davidson's studio and retail store. She was blown away. With the designer on board, next came the choice of builder. “Picking a builder came down to the fact that it’s not just picking someone who is the most competitively priced; it’s someone who can partner with you on a project,” said Engen. “I felt like Tim [Nagelkirk] was far and away the best choice we could have made. It’s been an incredible experience. Looking back on it, it was clearly the best choice.”

The kitchen’s palette of colors and textures is a calming blend of grey, neutral, white, wood, and metal. The quartz countertops from Great Lakes Granite Works are complemented by the tile backsplash that is carried to the ceiling, wrapping into the window box with mitered edges for the visual effect of perfect lines everywhere. The custom Wolf and SubZero appliances, from Gerrit's Appliance, are punctuated by the custom-crafted range hood. It captures the attention and draws the eye toward the kitchen from other areas of the home. Adjacent to the family room and open to the kitchen is a custom, built-in banquette table complete with footrest that offers another place for family to gather.

Tim Nagelkirk, owner of Colonial Builders, is now a two- time “Cosmopolitan Home of the Year” builder (an annual honor that started in 1995). He highly values relationships with clients which was more than evident in this year's collaboration. “They gave us room to be creative which was fun,” said Nagelkirk. “Once you build trust, everyone can work together to create the most amazing final product possible.” Observing Nagelkirk’s quiet confidence, it’s easy to see why the Engens had faith in his work ethic and craftsmanship. The positioning of the home on the acreage had everything to do with the character of the existing 14 | spring 2017

trees, the natural undulations, and lighting. “We spent a lot of time walking the crop field to visualize the perfect, final position of both the home and the drive,” said Nagelkirk. “We wanted to capture all the beauty of the property not only from the drive up, but, from the inside viewing out.” Sunrises and sunsets were not only considered but prioritized. The long and narrow footprint of the home was part of the Visbeen plan to capture the best light. Visbeen Architects takes the client through detailed live drawings during initial meetings, listening to the needs and desires of the family and creating homes with symmetry which inspires a sense of calm. This

unique process was the genesis for the masterful final product. Family-friendly finishes and functional design were at the core of the project and something that is second nature to Davidson. She develops environments that define spaces yet there is continuity throughout. Her design aesthetic for the family home is comfortable and durable yet there is a fresh appeal at every turn. You love to be there because of how the space looks, you don't want to leave because of how it makes you feel — there's a happiness to Davidson's designs.

The dining room is visually inviting with contrasting but complementary patterns on the rugs and chairs, accent lighting, and custom layered window treatments. Offering unimpeded views of the countryside, the main floor family area encourages conversation and relaxation. The reclaimed beams on the ceiling add immediate character and warmth. Weighing in excess of 600 pounds each, they were re-sawed on sight and set with hand cranes, The engineered-hardwood floor from Century Flooring extends throughout most of the home and is both beautiful and durable.

Walking in, the foyer is purposefully mirrored; on one side is a powder room, and on the other a coat room area with enough space for coats, bags, some storage, and a bench. As Nagelkirk and Davidson pointed out, coat closets are not functional for today’s families. They now want places to hang their coats and put belongings that are open and more accessible yet organized and visually appealing.

framing each room, window and area perfectly,” said Davidson. “In design, somebody has to be in the background and although technically the paneling is in the background, it was a purposeful design element bringing cohesion to the rooms.”

The foyer area also utilizes the use of transom windows, an architectural feature carried throughout the home, allowing natural light to travel from space to space. It is also here that one of the most daunting tasks in the design process is introduced: laying out the beautiful wall panels with precision.

A twenty-foot-high fireplace also captures attention upon entering and was built with a custom stone veneer. A limestone hearth, reclaimed wood mantel, and custom metal fireplace doors finish the look as the eye is drawn high, revealing the second floor walkway and metal railings. All custom metal work throughout the home was designed by Nagelkirk, Davidson and Dan Carlson who completed the finish work.

“It was like a puzzle to make sure that from every angle in the house, the paneling was perfect, 16 | spring 2017

“We spend a lot of time laying out each detail,” said Nagelkirk. “Scale and symmetry are what make a space feel great.”

The engineered-hardwood floor extends throughout most of the home and is both beautiful and durable, a must for busy families. “Hardwoods allow for design flexibility for years to come,” noted Davidson. “I almost always pick the hardwood floors first. It suggests the tone of the house.” Immediately, the impressive attention to detail is evident. Colonial Builders head carpenter was integral in helping bring the vision to life. That did not exclude Nagelkirk from making his mark however, as he assured each room had a seamless look and each detail was addressed. Whether that meant custom heating grates to blend in seamlessly or customizing removable baby gates to keep the Engen children safe yet look beautiful with the home’s custom-iron railing system, the Colonial Builders team made sure that the tiniest of details received attention.

“They let us be creative which was fun. Once you build trust, everyone can work together.”

Past the laundry room, a multi-use office space is found. The focal point of this room is the large, counter-height island, perfect for family crafts and projects. Davidson designs the majority of her surfaces to be counter height for comfort and continuity of scale. The island is flanked on either side by symmetrical windows and two desks; it is a perfect place for family fun now and homework in the future. The office cabinetry features a cross hatch pattern making it feel a bit more rustic. The grasscloth wallpaper adds a touch of texture to the room and also absorbs noise. Above the island, the eye is drawn to a whimsically large light fixture that fills the space perfectly as if it were customized for the room. At the end of the island is a loveseat for one or more of the children to gather and watch a show while mom or dad gets some work done.

“In design, somebody has to be in the background and although technically the paneling is in the background, it was a purposeful design element bringing cohesion to the rooms.”

Highlighting the owner wing is the bedroom suite offering a gorgeous sleeping area with unparalleled views of the wildlife on the back side of the property. Two symmetrical bookcases surround the arched opening and provide space for keepsakes and pictures of family. The adjoining bathroom maintains the counter-height sinks, one for each owner, with beautiful quartz countertops. With radiant heat flooring throughout the home, cold feet is never an occurrence. The steam shower has an oversized rain head, several jets, access to music, and a heated bench. It’s easy to see why it is a favorite with the boys at bath time. A spacious walk-in closet streaming with natural light and filled with custom cabinetry completes the space. Offering unimpeded views of the countryside, the main floor family area invites entertainment

and encourages conversation and relaxation. Besides the picturesque views, the reclaimed beams on the ceiling offer a subtle feeling of nostalgia. They add immediate character and warmth while instilling a sense of history, harkening back to the days when the acreage's barn was farm functional. Installing the beams was a challenge but definitely a worthy one. “The reclaimed wood beams weighed in excess of 600 pounds each and were re-sawed on sight, splitting them in half and set with hand cranes by our talented team of finish carpenters,” said Nagelkirk.

“Building a house is a very emotional journey. Our job is to make it pain free. The biggest compliment is that it feels like home; it sounds trite but it is true.”

The tile backsplash is carried to the ceiling, wrapping into the window box behind the sink with mitered edges for the visual effect of perfect lines everywhere.

Off the family room is the flex room, a place for the kids to play and store toys. As the kids grow, it may become an extra office or homework space. One of the visions of the team was to be sure that the home would grow with the family. Visbeen relayed that during the live drawing process that he engages the client in, he gets a sense of the owner’s priorities. The house needed rooms that could grow and change with the large family. This space is a perfect end to that means.

The banquette chairs are interchangeable with the kitchen stools allowing for flexibility in entertaining and accommodating larger groups. The surrounding spaces and stairs to the upper level intentionally emphasize the open view while creating another functional space for gathering family and friends.

Directly parallel to the kitchen is a cozy, family, hang out area. Outfitted with a comfortable and durable sofa and large TV, here the boys can view a show, read, or play while mom is cooking dinner. Behind this family room is the auxiliary pantry, home to a custom Bekin’s coffee center, second sink, microwave, refrigerator and storage. This room elevates the idea of a butler’s pantry to allow for quick access to all that might be needed in a busy family of seven.

Designed to have that “added on” look, the space's walls appear to have once been exterior walls, although that was never the case. The heated bluestone floor is carried out to the circular patio area which features a hot tub and custom grilling station. From here a view of the children’s play house and old-fashioned tire swing keeps kids in sight — a great place to entertain on just about any Michigan evening. The dining room is the most formal and traditional in the house but highlights the thoughtfulness in Davidson's design choices. It is visually inviting with contrasting but complementary patterns on the rugs and chairs, accent lighting, and custom layered window treatments. The table and chairs are durable enough for a large family. Most interestingly, the cotton fabric on the seat coverings are laminated for extreme durability. The finishes in this room illustrate quite clearly that the Dwellings design philosophy is about form, function, and family. In the back hallway two design elements give a more sophisticated feel to the many functional elements found in this area. A checkerboard pattern on the floor is accompanied by a custommilled, oversized, beadboard. For today’s busy families the mud room is a must.

with true louvered doors to keep the air flowing through the contents. Ample space is available for baskets, coats, and sports equipment. The light fixture in the back area again draws the eye upward where transom windows let in the natural light. There is a small powder bath for quick teeth brushing before school. Also, the back doorways lead to two separate garages. One garage houses the cars and the custom built-dog washing station; the other houses what can only be described as “the toys for the boys,” both big and small.

“Your house has to be able to grow and change and adapt to the family.”

“One of my favorite challenges on a home is to design and create practical and useful areas to help a client’s everyday living become more efficient and organized while still being eye appealing,” said Nagelkirk.

The upper level caters to the children. Here, another family room was custom engineered with surround sound and large TV from Streamline Systems and includes a comfortable sectional for hanging out with friends and playing video games or, for having a family movie night.

and storage. As they grow, this second level will grow with them. There is also an upper level laundry room that will help keep the continuous task of a large family up-to-date and organized. Lastly, there are two more bathrooms to accommodate a busy household. When speaking of the decision not to finish the lower level, the needs of the family were utmost in everyone’s mind. The kids' interests will develop over time and will influence the level's design when ready. “Your house has to be able to grow and change and adapt to the family,” said Nagelkirk. “We did not finish the lower level because of the needs of our family right now,” said Engen. “It’s not typical for a builder to try to save you money and hold off on an expenditure. I feel like most builders would probably say spend the money, spend the money! Drywall dust is going to be a mess later ... most builders and designers wouldn’t do this because it is obviously a financial gain if we finished it.” The trust was there from the start and never faltered the entire project. Currently, the lower level includes a few areas that do suit the family. For Tim and Brandi, there is a well-equipped workout room. The kids have toys and a place to run around and be boys without disturbing the upper levels. One of the most unique rooms in the house is Tim’s safe room equipped with a vault door that houses state-of-the-art security equipment as well as some of his treasures. This room could be straight out of the Old West with a manly, rustic charm including rough, raw wood floors and plenty of areas for displays. The Home of the Year was a collaboration executed by a team of dedicated professionals and a family with a dream. “Building a house is a very emotional journey,” said Davidson. “Our job is to make it pain free.”

The positioning of the home on the acreage had everything to do with the character of the existing trees, the natural undulations, and lighting. Sunrises and sunsets were not only considered but prioritized. The long and narrow footprint of the home was part of the Visbeen Architect plan to capture the best light.

“The biggest compliment is that it feels like home; it sounds trite but it is true,” said Davidson. “When we are doing a house, we can see it already done. The nuances are clear. There has to be trust on the owners part that it will come together.” This trust and vision helped create a timeless estate, the happy home of the Engen family. b

BUILDER S NOTE “Without the great work of the entire Colonial team and subcontractors, none of this would be possible. It’s a collaborative effort and this estate was so much fun to construct — I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of it!

MARY NEVER MISSED AN EPISODE OF JACQUES COUSTEAU AS A child and her love of painting the ocean creatures seen on his show began when she was 10 years old. “At age 12, I visited the Gulf of Mexico with my cousin Karen and our fathers. We walked the beach, swam and played in the surf and went deep sea fishing on a commercial fishing boat. Every bit of it thrilled me — I loved the wind in my face, the taste of the salt in the water, my blonde hair tangled … I was hooked on all of it!”

y age 18, she pursued her passion at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Mich. But, the beckoning call of the Gulf swept her away, and Mary moved to Mustang Island in Port Aransas, Tx, calling the island her home for 12 years. Mary painted the ocean and creatures beneath from her new home and would RSVP “yes” to any and all invitations for diving explorations, travel to exotic locations and new adventures. While most use a camera to document travels, Mary chose to paint her experiences and documented her combined passions for travel, boating, scuba diving and snorkeling with her art. “Ambergris Caye, Belize … there was no electricity, no hot water, and I didn’t care! The clear waters of the Caribbean opened a whole new world for me. I learned to snorkel, free dive, hunt for lobsters, eat conch, swim with sea turtles and sharks. It was amazing and beautiful — I knew I wanted all of this in my life forever.” Mary has always loved boating, and at different times worked as a deck hand and mate on crew boats in the oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico, on a fishing charter vessel, and crewed on a 65-foot Bertram International Sport Fishing Yacht. Childhood boats, other people’s boats, her own boats — she loved boats and eventually her 21year-old-dream of owning a Schooner was fulfilled in 2002.

CAPTAINING THE SCHOONER WIND DANCER IN GRAND HAVEN IS A SHARED DREAM COME TRUE FOR MARY AND HER HUSBAND CHIP. PASSENGERS FEEL THE WIND IN THEIR FACE AND EXPERIENCE THE TRADITION OF SAILING ON A GAFFRIGGED VESSEL ON THE BEAUTIFUL WATERS OF LAKE MICHIGAN.

The well-known Schooner Wind Dancer in Grand Haven, Mich. is a shared dream come true and passion for Mary and her husband Chip. Passengers feel the wind in their face, hear the song of the sea, and experience the tradition of sailing on a gaff-rigged vessel on the magical waters of Lake Michigan. Coastal Living magazine featured Wind Dancer in their May, 2017 issue as number 5 of the 10 top things to do and see in Grand Haven. Mary has a passion for scuba diving and painting the beautiful world found above and beneath the waves. Her current mediums include oils on canvas and acrylics on marble. The natural veining and color of the marble creates depth not found on a blank canvas. This innovative, original art form adds detail to the underwater background and Mary enjoys "painting into the marble.” Her work is collected locally and internationally. A master scuba diver and sailor, Mary has seen the changes in our reefs and waters. Conserving and protecting our marine environment is vital to her. As an ocean advocate and proud member of the Ocean Artist Society, she hopes to spotlight awareness on preserving our water planet by sharing the beautiful marine images in her paintings. The vastness of the water witnessed from boating, and the minute, intricate details of life under water all amaze Mary, furthering her commitment to preserving it all.

Karlee Sayre – Future Marine Biologist Instead of sitting in a traditional 4th grade classroom, the Sayre family embarked on an adventure most people only dream about or see in movies. They somehow transported their 64-foot Schooner Wind Dancer from Grand Haven, Mich. to Fort Lauderdale, FL sailed around the southern coast of Florida into the Gulf of Mexico, hitting different ports through Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas to Port Aransas and Mustang Island. They took their time and dropped anchor before dark each evening to fish for their dinner and relax. They lingered awhile longer in their favorite ports; Key West, Boca Grande and Tarpon Springs and visited many turtle hospitals and aquariums along the Gulf. Karlee learned 4th grade math and many lessons on how to live at sea. As part of her home-schooling curriculum, she kept an epic journal of the adventure filled with sweet innocence, wild-eyed wonder, and delightful drawings. “Dolphins on the Bow!” were words that halted the crew of 3 from whatever they were doing. The dolphins loved playing near Wind Dancer and interacting with the bow breaking through the waves and racing the wake. These encounters never ceased to amaze and

E MARINERS AT HEART, the owners of this coastal beauty and their love for the open waters of beautiful Lake Michigan was the impetus behind acquiring this shoreline site. Feeling a bit land-locked in their Spring Lake waterfront home, they learned about the potential listing of this highly desirable property and pounced on the chance to buy it. They had previously built four other homes with David C. Bos Homes and had used Melissa de Alvare of Classic deSign to provide design inspiration. They knew exactly who could make their lakefront dream home ship-shape. There are six guiding principles in building a home with Bos's firm. One of this home’s most awe-inspiring features illustrates his first principle: Find the perfect seat. As Bos explained, “Our design is intentional — whether on Lake Michigan or not — and we strive to capture the perfect location to maximize the view. This site was unique as it’s a low, gradual slope out to the lake rather than one perched on a high bluff which is typical for lakefront property. Our goal was to capture sweeping panoramic views of the lighthouse and pier from most rooms of the house.”

The client asked Bos and his architect to evaluate the original home for a potential remodel. “Once we came out and started talking with the client about what they envisioned, we realized we were looking at a substantial remodel.” This is where Bos’s second guiding principle: Understanding your lifestyle and life stage comes into the design picture. “Before we begin the design process, we need to understand how the client will live in the home and what they want to achieve,” Bos explained. “Your custom home should be a reflection of who you are and how you live. In this case, they are empty nesters, with kids and grandkids, who love to entertain guests. We also wanted this cottage to become a full-time home in the future where they could live comfortably at that stage of their lives. We put all that into perspective then get to work on the design.” All that research led to the original home being gutted to the studs, exterior walls reframed to accept new window sizes, and a new roof. In essence, it’s a brand new custom home as it would be difficult to point out any trace of the original house that remains. Melissa de Alvare has known the homeowners for almost 30 years. With that history, her input was critical and with a comfortable working relationship as part of the build team, design decisions flowed easily. “Because of our longstanding relationship, I know what their expectations are and how to keep them in the loop. People are busy and design decisions are major and shouldn’t be sprung on them at the last minute. I’m able to present options two to three weeks before they need to decide so they’re secure in their choices and not shooting from the hip,” she explained. Since de Alvare and Bos had built for the couple before, they didn’t want them to feel they were walking into the same house in a different location. “This was a chance to start fresh and do something entirely different from any home they’ve built before,” de Alvare said. “Like anyone, their tastes have evolved as they’ve traveled through life. Their home is a reflection of things they’ve acquired and who they’ve become over time.” The couple pictured a warm, comfortable home for entertaining family and friends, but something that still felt like a cottage.

An expansive wraparound porch travels from the south to west façade offering easy family flow from the core areas of the home for easy summer entertaining and family time. The porch ceilings feature tongue-and-groove beaded fir wood and the railings are custom-made steel cable with recessed LED lighting from The Lighting Corner for dramatic nighttime impact.

From the outside, it presents an authentic beachfront feel with its low-maintenance cement board shake topped with a metal roof. The roof promises a symphony of sound when rain combines with the waves.

The home intentionally frames its best asset: the big lake.≈The main floor spaces including the great room, kitchen, and dining room are structured to maximize lakefront views. The living room area honors its roots with a Lake Michigan stone fireplace mantle and hearth. Both husband and wife are cooks and their kitchen, from Straight Line Kitchens, accommodates a dual-team approach with an oversized refrigerator and double ovens. Quartzite surfaces offer durability and white subway tile with a natural marble basketweave backsplash behind the Wolf range, from Bekins Appliance, creates a timeless appeal.

Step inside to see how Bos’s third principle: Be clear on costs and budget comes into view. “Everybody has a budget,” explains Bos. “We’re transparent about costs and good listeners to deliver what the client wants … on their budget. It’s their house we’re building, not ours.” De Alvare is very good at 3-dimensional sketching which she feels gives her clients a visual advantage to picture the end design result and is incredibly helpful to clearly communicate the finished design look to subcontractors. Since the client loves to entertain and wanted a fun, low-maintenance getaway, ceramic tile was selected throughout the main floor to withstand sandy feet. The living room area honors its roots with a Lake Michigan stone fireplace mantle and hearth. The home intentionally frames its biggest asset: the big lake. Once inside, you still feel the dramatic, expansive draw of the lake as so many of the main floor rooms including the great room, kitchen, and dining room are structured to maximize lakefront views. De Alvare points out another unique architectural feature that was driven by the home’s location near the lighthouse channel. Once the architect came up with the idea of two-level turrets on the southwest corner of the home, it “blew the lid off ” a more conservative remodel and the entire upper floor was reimagined to accommodate the sweeping view. Despite this “no holds barred” approach, the home still fits with the fourth design principle of a David C. Bos Home: Make a statement, with architectural integrity providing a living space that lives large while feeling intimate. “Everything we design will have a thread of timelessness,” Bos added. The homeowner contributed one of the most striking elements of the home that you see carried out in so many of the home’s warm details. He discovered raw walnut boards at a high-end lumber company, bought a truckload, and had stored it for 20 years for future woodworking projects. This house turned out to be one. Bos's millwork company hand-milled it into custom flooring, doors, and trim accents; even in the circular turret ceiling of the owner suite. This isn’t a client who does anything halfway which dovetails neatly with Bos’s fifth principle: Maintain the highest standards. The client loves details and the quality is apparent in the fit and finish throughout the home. One telling example is a remote blind system custom-built into every window header — even in the curved walls of the turrets. The blinds retract neatly into a sliver of trim work in the header. It all adds to the clean aesthetic of the home which de Alvare designed to feel crisp and

beachy with subtle nautical features like the shiny hardware details. Both husband and wife are cooks and their kitchen accommodates a dual-team approach with an oversized refrigerator and double ovens. De Alvare suggested quartzite surfaces for their durability and timeless white subway tile with a natural marble basketweave backsplash behind the Wolf range. With her guidance, the couple incorporated steam ovens for a healthier way to prepare vegetables and fish. “Part of my service as a designer is to research new trends and let my client know they exist as a helpful lifestyle option,” de Alvare explained. 40 | spring 2017

lake. Like every dedicated mariner, the sound of the waves and wind are invited through windows on every wall and arched doorways retain the romance of the stunning view.

To make this home serve future life stages, Bos included a guest suite with a built-in window seat with lake view and en suite bathroom to serve as an owner suite if main floor living is required someday.

Bos Home, this home was constructed with his sixth principle in mind: Maximize your resale and investment. “Whether the home is 1200 or 9000 square feet and custom-built, we guide our client to ensure that everything that goes into the home adds to its resale value,” noted Bos. “And this home is beautiful. With the sharp horizon line through every window, you feel like you’re sitting on the lake. You don’t want to leave. There’s a strong desire to hang out, have a cup of coffee, and wait for the next sunset.”b

Imported Luxury TEXT BY ERINN FINLAN PHOTOS BY DAVID GUTHRIE

o much about European travel is visionary. Yet, for those that experience the journey, there’s an ineffable quality, one where the wanderlust can only be equaled by the destinations themselves.

Taking those cues from the old continent, homeowners Stephen and Julie Dalm created an artful, layered reimagining of the European vignettes discovered on trips to Rome, Marseilles, Pisa, Monte Carlo and Barcelona. “For me, there has to be a story. There has to be depth,” Dalm says of her three-and-a-half years of idea-gathering, both overseas and stateside.

Together with architect Wayne Visbeen, and builders DeHaan Homes, Dalm sought to intertwine the experience of each room with the flavor of a centuries-old palette. “I feel like dramatic people equal dramatic taste,” Dalm says of the Sicilian roots that helped nurture her affinity for grand and storied architecture. The home first hints at that

grandness with a combination of cultured facade materials. Stone, wrought iron, copper and brick ground the opulent, rubbed bronze corbels, and stow honing archway of the entry. Crafted by Bella Grande Entrances, a regal set of 10-foot doors serve as the introduction in to the foyer amidst the brushed travertine flooring. Here a sweeping staircase and wrought iron railing lead the eye to towering ceiling heights,where a visible Juliette balcony awaits discovery from one-of-two upstairs suites. A trio of columns create the transition into the formal dining room. The capitals, each adorned with bands of architectural foliage at the columns’ tops, are a detail that repeats throughout the home, creating continuity in even the smallest of moments.

ceiling, chandelier and hand-scraped walnut floors round out the dining space and add to the continued feel of imported luxury. “I’m always drawn to things like arches, pillars, finials, corbels and antiques, no matter where I am. People talk about simple elegance, but I see architecture and design in terms of layering,” Dalm says. Her decision to add a third column to the dining room - where many would choose the expected two “bookend” columns - speaks to her fearless and distinctive aesthetic. If the character of the home is carved out in these striking details, then the soul can be found through the foyer’s arched opening to the formal living room and kitchen. Situated at the back of the residence, both rooms command views of the calming, wooded backdrop. Threaded throughout all three floors is a veritable tour of chandeliers, and none more imaginative than the two Schonbek crystal statement pieces that cast a sparkle of romance above the granite, oversized kitchen island.

Adjacent to the kitchen, a Louis XV-inspired stone fireplace anchors the formal living room and provides the gravitas for the entire first level of the home. Coupled with a Michelangelo marble surround, known for its amazing variance in tone, the sheer scale and splendor of the mantel and overmantel suddenly feel more graceful than heavy in their beauty.

GRAND RAPIDS BREWING COMPANY Reimagined, reinvented and reopened as the Midwest's only USDA-certified organic brewery. From our re-purposed wood tables to our retro art, we like reusing where it makes good sense. But, in reopening GRBC as the Midwest's only organic brewery, we knew we were taking a new step in the right direction. One sip and you'll know, too. Know what goes great with organic beer? Our hand-crafted food. From award winning chili and house-made sausages to our brewhouse burger, everything on our menu was made to be enjoyed with our beers. Grab anything off our pub friendly menu to go with your pint and you'll see what we mean. Grand Rapids Brewing Company. Organic never tasted so good. 1 Ionia St. SW Grand Rapids MI 49503 616.458.7000 • grbrewingcompany.com Cosmopolitan Home Grand Rapids | 71

EVENTS FOR A CAUSE

Gala 2017 The Centering Pregnancy® program of Spectrum Health

T

he 2017 gala supported the CenteringPregnancy® program at Spectrum Health. Spectrum Health had nearly 8,000 births last year. However, many mothers do not receive the appropriate prenatal and postnatal care — care that will help them have a healthy baby. The CenteringPregnancy® program takes a unique “small group” approach to prenatal care. Because the program addresses health inequalities through greater access to care, Spectrum Health will better serve the mothers and babies at greatest risk. Thank you to the Gala 2017 supporters!
