Steve Roberts and Pat Nowak.

My husband Steve Roberts and I live in Holland, Ohio on a large lake. Because of the home’s openness we have chosen paint that is neutral but enjoy the boldness of the lake and have splashed color throughout, opting for aqua, blue, yellow and red. Hardwood floors are dotted with softer accent area rugs and the metal and glass pieces are used for contemporary ambiance.
