House Tour: East Coast Shingle-Style Home

  • June 30, 2018

With its sleek, traditional design, East Coast inspired elements, and beautiful custom cabinetry that graces every room in the home, this Lake Minnetonka house is a stunning display of expert design.  

With the goal of bringing East Coast timelessness to the Midwest, our Studio M Kitchen & Bath and Studio M Interior designers worked together to perfectly curate each room in this home. You’ll notice how each space is unique in its design yet seamlessly flows with the style of the rest of the house. This project is a true showcased collaboration of the two design teams working together along with Stonewood LLC, and Res Tech Systems.

“Our Studio M design teams helped us think about how we live day to day and created spaces that reflect our lifestyle and bring us great joy. Through this process, they have almost become part of our family! The end result speaks for itself in ways that words cannot express – this home is us!” explained new homeowner of Stonewood Built and Studio M Kitchen & Bath-designed East Coast Shingle-Style Home.

The kitchen is the backbone to this Artisan home. With the homeowners’ desires in mind, the teams worked to create a space for both cooking and entertaining. The large kitchen island and fully integrated column refrigerator and freezer anchor the space, while the beautiful metal hood is the stunning centerpiece. The white inset cabinetry keeps the space clean yet traditional and the soft blue and gray tones throughout the home tie the East Coast charm in throughout this Lake Minnetonka home. Special features and accessories in the kitchen are a wine refrigerator, steam oven, fully integrated dishwasher, and customized cabinet and drawer organization.
