A Refined Contemporary Home with Subtle Prairie Style by Bruce Kading

With over thirty years in the interior design industry, and a strong background in architectural design, Bruce Kading of Bruce Kading Interior Design has earned multiple awards for consistently creating impeccable high-end residential and executive office designs. The Minneapolis interior design firm has nationally recognized projects across the United States, from Pennsylvania to Montana to Florida.

In the lush lakeside community of North Oaks, Minnesota, Bruce Kading collaborated with the owners of a 1.9 acre of land to create a beautiful and relaxing home with a subtle rustic, prairie style. When it comes to working with clients, “the most important lesson I’ve learned is to listen to the client, they hold the key to a happy home,” says Kading. The clients wanted a home that was clean and simple with architectural details and plenty of organic materials and textures. Working closely with his clients, Kading’s meticulous attention to detail and fondness for a sense of age and history produced a classic contemporary home surrounded by woods and a lake.
