The Bubbles House

Ann Arbor, Michigan
Location
  • Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • This is a home for a busy family of four. Both parents work and a college age daughter in and out of the house weekly plus a busy high school age daughter living in the house. A Golden Doodle and two cats for sure add to the energy level of the family in this 2600 sq.ft. house. The home owner who is an interior designer has a passion for bubbles, or circles, to be less exact. She incorporated the shapes of bubbles into her design and solved the lighting issues in the staircase and the kids' bathroom. The result is a comfortable and pleasant home for the family for the years to come.
