Project vision or goals

This lake house offers respite from busy city life. The family will weekend here to slow down spend quality time together while enjoying boating, fishing, and host friends. The space needs to be welcoming, peaceful, and casual. Visitors should feel relieved to leave the chaos of daily life behind, if just for day, to enjoy the present moment with people they love.

Project challenges
  The project began as a small refresh and grew in scope over time. What started as a request for paint and light fixtures turned into a full face-lift of much of the home. The client did not love the traditional taste of the previous homeowner or the lack of elegance and simplicity that is a result of good design and skilled building practices.
Project solutions
  The red oak floor was stripped, bleached, and re-stained throughout the living spaces. Candy colored, pastel walls were painted over with a warm white paint. Outdated and cumbersome light fixtures and window coverings were replaced with more elegant solutions to elevate the overall feel of the space as well as enhance the quality of light. Natural seagrass wallcovering was added at the entry to bring texture and calm. Overtly ornamental finishes and fixtures were replaced with simple, timeless and more modern choices. Woven wool carpet replaced the less cozy, builder grade nylon product.
