Glen, what was your client looking for in the design of this home? The owner has had a home on this site for many years, but the family had outgrown it. It was demolished, and this house was built in its place. The client gave us and the architect, Mike Abraham, the task of making this new, larger home feel like it was the next expansion of several phases over the years. Tell us more about the materials you chose for this project. We use stone and wood so that it would seem that the sections of the house had been added onto over the years. Rusticated Stone and reclaimed wood – some of it from the original house – helped achieve this result. We incorporated a composition of granite, quartz, limestone of different types and areas of origin, concrete and even river stone. The furnishings played a big role. While the goal of the architectural design was to make it appear the house was of vintage age, we wanted the furnishings to reflect more of an up-to-date feeling yet still play homage to the comforts of tradition. The color palette reflects the exterior materials. There was a concentrated effort made to bring the outside into the interior of the house. Reclaimed wooden beams and exposed stone walls gave the impression this newly built vacation home on Geneva Lake is centuries old. Interior designer Glen Lusby complemented these architectural materials with a trio of lounge chairs from the deAurora showroom Covered in a Donghia matelasse, all found at the Design Center in the World Famous Chicago Merchandise Mart.

In the main house, reclaimed wood beams, exposed stone walls, fireplaces and wide thresholds separating the hardwood floors give the impression that the home was cobbled together over the years, one addition at each time. The truth, it was built assembly-line style in 3 stages. After the foundation was poured there were multiple trades on site at all times, moving from left to right. The owners tap Chicago-based designer Glen Lusby, of Glen Lusby Interiors, to serve as the unofficial liaison on between the various craftspeople.” We’ve been working with Glen for years and years, he’s a gifted gentleman,” the client explains. Inspired by the view, Glen blanketed the interiors in a pallet of ivories and gray-blues, which repeats throughout the house. “The major theme is comfort and softness,”Lusby explains.” There’s nothing stark about this house, and no hard edges.”
