Stunning Details Inside a Vintage-Inspired Walloon Lake Cottage Gracious on Walloon- A Look from the Outside In

The Little Details: Perfecting the Home

Interior designer Jennifer Keiser of The Quiet Moose worked with the Gusicks and their team—builder Nick Fettig of Harbor View Custom Builders, architect Greg Presley and Jill Brecheisen of Kitchens by Design—for two years, consulting on finishes, trim, cabinet profiles, tile, countertops, flooring, lighting, stone work, exterior and interior paints, wallpaper, mirrors and furniture. “The Gusicks had a great vision,” says Keiser. “The furniture pivoted off the blue hues in their kitchen cabinets and granite counters and the rich browns and grays in their walnut floors and custom fireplace stone.”

The bunk-room style is vintage nautical. In the kitchen, Brecheisen custom-designed the range hood with its brass accent band to coordinate with the surrounding hardware and fixtures. Dual Cove dishwashers flank the sink, the refrigerator is a built-in panel-ready Sub-zero, the range is a 48-inch Wolf Gourmet and the 7-by-8-foot island is topped with natural quartzite polished Nuvalato and is packed with storage space. The barstools are Vanguard with a custom leg finish to match the cabinets. The dining table and chairs (arched top, smoked nickel nailhead trim) are by Barclay Butera.

The primary bedroom echoes the entire home’s sophisticated casual blend of color, pattern and texture creating an inviting and understatedly elegant interior. The primary bath includes a double-bowl vanity, and each vanity side has personalized drawers as well as a decorative linen and towel storage cabinet. “We selected a bold graphite paint to add dimension and depth to the space,” says Brecheisen. “The cabinet styling is very classic and complements key elements in the home.”
