Many Chicagoans squeeze in few escapes from the city each year. We have friends with a getaway cottage in Michigan and have enjoyed spending idyllic days with them at the beach, picking apples and antique hunting. We can totally "get" why folks choose this part of the world for vacation homes - especially when you factor in the very short trip from Chicago. This month, one of these homes is featured...
...on the cover of Azure. While the location (Michigan City) is familiar, it is not your typical south shore cottage - it is a very modern home designed by Brad Lynch.
The L-shaped wood and glass structure is set in a wooded preserve close to the shore. According to the owners it has been a pleasure to visit throughout the seasons as well as a perfect backdrop for their vintage furniture collection. Check out the article by Edward Keegan and more photos by Christopher Barrett right here for all the details.
