Recreating a home inherited from the previous generation presents us with a unique challenge as designers: how can we preserve the fantastic childhood memories held by the original design, while also improving its capacity for future memory-making? These questions drove our renovation of this Lake Arrowhead cabin that came to us with its original 1970s interior. Our team at Norman Design Group embraced a sense of warmth and togetherness in our design solutions. By the final reveal, we successfully welcomed the family into a new chapter of family dinners, sunset boat cruises, ski weekends, and warm fires.

What we love about this project: the unique use of textures, stone detailing, playful artwork, and a floor plan that encourages centralized social activities. The bright, upbeat atmosphere of the home welcomes in boaters from the lake and creates a one-of-a-kind space for family memories.
