Summer Always Comes

JASON HULET

We scheduled the shoot for the cover of this issue on a spring day that promised summery conditions. But when the day dawned, it was gray and chilly and dreary. Nevertheless, I set off optimistically with our art director, Nicole Steffen, and freelance photographer Courtney Kent to the gorgeous house on Sleeping Bear Bay that you’ll read about in our story Beach House, Refreshed. Armed with bottles of lemonade, pretty aqua striped towels, a couple of pairs of flip-flops and bags of camera gear, Courtney and Nicole set up shop on the deck, ready to give our readers a taste of summer Up North. Gray as it was, it was still easy to imagine what a sunny June day would feel like on this deck. The smell of warm sand, juniper bushes and fresh water rolling up from Lake Michigan—and those gemlike blues and greens that play across Sleeping Bear Bay on summer days. Ditto for envisioning a summer day in the other two homes we’ve featured. Deb and Mike Brenton pretty much feel like they are in heaven on their rooftop deck atop their Uptown Townhome on Traverse City’s State Street. From three stories up, Grand Traverse Bay grins big and blue from the northern horizon, and from the south side of the deck they can watch kayakers paddle past on the Boardman River. Then there is the stunning Elements of Style home on East Grand Traverse Bay, where a glassed-in walkway leading to the master bedroom delivers a view of summer water that makes you feel like you are on the beach when you are still in your jammies. In a region that is beautiful 12 months of the year, summer is, of course, the pièce de résistance—the time when we live to be near water. Our beloved masterpiece showed its glowing face just as Courtney started clicking: a wonderful blue sky swept over the lake from the west, pushing the cloudbank out of its way. The lake glittered a gazillion colors of green and blue, the sand shimmered, the beach towels fluttered. Ah, yes, summer in water country.

Self-proclaimed foodies who love walking to Traverse City’s dynamic restaurants and the biweekly farmers market, Mike and Deb Brenton knew they wanted a kitchen that could fulfi ll their cooking desires. Designers from Traverse City’s Kitchen Choreography provided the plan, with features that include wine refrigerator, steam/convection oven, Wolf range with grill and a fl at screen TV. The highly functional maple cabinets are painted marshmallow cream, the island countertop is Sandalus Brazilian quartzite, and the perimeter counters are Uba Tuba leathered granite. The bar stools are from Holland Bar Stool Co. A glass stairway bannister allows an unobstructed sight path to the view of State Street from the dining area window.

The dining area window seat is perched over State Street, a view that Deb loves. “There is always something going on— it’s like a motion picture,” she says. Deb worked with interior designer Meg Whiteford on the creamy-toned palette that plays off the hickory fl oors. The dining room set is from Golden Fowler, in Traverse City. 

O

wning their quarter-share unit at the full-service Crystal Mountain resort in Thompsonville taught Mike

and Deb Brenton how much they loved parking their car and forgetting about it as long as possible. “The feeling of not having to get into a car for anything was really, really great,” recalls Mike. Their vacations at Crystal Mountain also renewed the couples’ desire for a second home in Northern Michigan. So when Deb’s sister told them about a new development in downtown Traverse City within walking distance of everything from the beach to restaurants they were more than interested. And when they found a unit that allowed them to have a ground floor office for their Brenton Law Group, well, done deal. While they still maintain a home and office in East Lansing, the couple is easing into Traverse City life—wearing their walking shoes.

Through the living area window, Grand Traverse Bay winks beyond the streetscape horizon. The gas fi replace is from Source Julien, in Traverse City. Matt Coffey, of Matt Coffey Design in Traverse City, fabricated the metal facade. The sofa, wingback chair and glass-topped table are from Golden Fowler; the lamps are from Nest Grand Traverse. The table with the lamp is from At Home in Suttons Bay. The rug is hand-knotted, purchased by the couple on a trip to Turkey. 

The rooftop deck is the townhome’s pièce de résistance. A built-in wet bar is tucked in along the approach to the deck, where a grill and a fl at-screen television are set to entertain. A hot tub and shower are planned. Topping it all off is that the roof is green—meaning layers of vegetation and other substrate lie on top of the standard roof, and the system helps retain and treat storm water. Net effect? The vegetation cools the roof, improves air quality and fi lters water draining off the roof into the Boardman. 

Designers Jenna Wedemeyer, from Chicago, and Angela Goodall, of Traverse City’s Kitchen Choreography, began the reno at the fl oor by having the original natural blonde maple sanded and stained a smoky gray—a look the designers echoed with new ceiling beams. The 1980s-esque pickled pine paneling used extensively in the home is updated with coats of Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

Jenna had the living room furniture, including the couch and four swivel club chairs, custom made in Chicago. The couch is upholstered in mohair and the chairs in chenille, both fabrics selected for their comfort and ability to stand up to children and pets. The bronze and glass coffee table and metal drum table add an ethnic accent. 

Left: The bar stools are clad in leather, meaning they are both durable and comfortable. The pendant lights are crocheted—the creation of U.K. designer Naomi Paul. Note how the color of the pantry door plays off the glass backsplash tiles. Angela exchanged a peninsula that originally separated the kitchen from the dining room for an island that functions more effi ciently for food prep and for mingling with the cook. She also designed—and her Kitchen Choreography team fabricated—the range hood, with its bronze band that matches the open shelving. The kitchen counters are White Macaubas quartzite, a material that resembles marble but holds up better. Ann Sacks glass backsplash tiles (style Jute; color Azure) refl ect the watery view out the window.

Stand in the woods near the Lake Michigan shore on a windy day and listen to the waves crashing, muffled by curtains of leaves and moss carpeting. This is a rare place—where earth and wood meet water and air in a stunning elemental collision. In one such pristine place, near the miniscule hamlet of Eastport, north of Traverse City, Joseph Mosey designed a house that manages to nod diplomatically in both directions. Mosey’s clients had regularly visited friends who lived just down the beach from the property. On their visits, they’d often walked past a small cottage there, not giving it much thought. But when the home came on the market, the friends persuaded them that the property was worth a look. The tiny, old cottage was overgrown but sited nicely, and the couple knew they could easily place a home in the same spot. Northern Home & Cottage

Masons worked about 14 months, selecting and placing every stone to maintain a natural-looking horizontal orientation that fit the lines of the architecture.
