"My mom taught me to make sure that the interiors of a house are reflective of the nature of its surroundings, location, and architecture. Our family has had two lake homes—one in Michigan and one in Wisconsin—and both have had cozy Adirondacks, On Golden Pond-style interiors. Which is very appropriate for their settings given that they're on cool, wooded, northern lakes with loons and bald eagles outside. This has taught me to always have a strong sense of place when designing homes for clients." —Elizabeth Cooper
