Saturday is the day for one of my favorite house tours—lots of talented Chicago-based designers with homes in the Michigan/Indiana area near the lake are on the committee to scout and find houses for the annual Celebration of Home & Garden tour, which benefits the Heartland Alliance. The home pictured on our May/June cover, a charming modern take on a classic cabin, was featured on last year’s tour. This year, look for the log cabin of Chicago designer Larry Boeder, a stately 10,000-square-foot Georgian on Lake Michigan, a 1920s cabin and gardens owned by a landscape designer, and more. Tickets ($125) can be purchased Saturday morning at Lovell & Whyte (14950 Lakeside Road, Lakeside, Michigan).
