MHome allows us to take a glimpse into the personality of a home. Whether the house is large or small each has a distinct presence that is unique to the owners. We have previewed many fabulous homes and before I left my post as the Editor of MLiving, I thought we’d take a look at my home.

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.

Accents for the home include art favorites and fabulous glass from local artists and those collected on travels in the US and Europe. Lake living should be easy and fun whether on the sun porch or entertaining neighbors on the deck, accented in aqua, lime green and blue.pat-n-steve-home-2
A great summer day at the Nowak/Roberts residence is traveling around the lake, catching up on daily news from other lake lovers.
