Lake House Inspiration {Client Project}

This past weekend I got a call from a possible client. She stated that she is closing on a new town house towards the end of August and wanted to get some ideas for her new place. We meet at the end of the week to discuss strategy and get a feel for what she is looking for.

I am very excited about this project because she says she needs all new furniture etc. and only has a few pieces that she will keep in the new place! Yeah!!!! Designer's dream project!

After we talked I started to do a hunt for possible inspiration shots to bring to our meeting. She stated that she wants the place to feel like a lake house and be light and airy even though it is a town house in the city. And she also wanted to make sure that it was entertaining friendly.

Here are a couple of the images I have pulled so far to further our discussion later in the week........


This photo has the bright and airy feel that I think she is looking for. Light walls, light upholstery, rustic wood finishes, and dark accents for contrast. I feel this space says relaxed yet in a sophisticated way. Perfect contrast of the light lake house feeling but keeping a slight city look.


Though this is technically a coastal project in the photo it does have that light airy feeling with the light fabrics, drapes, and walls.


This bathroom just says lake house to me. Nothing fancy....light and bright.....and has the added wood tones for warmth.


I love the casual feel in this photo.


Light and bright....found pieces for an eclectic mix that looks like it has been collected over time.


I love this kitchen. Depending on her space I would like to possibly keep lower cabinets dark and do white on top. Then again, adding found objects to give it that collected feel.




We will see how the meeting goes! I have tons more images to discuss with her but kept them to a minimum here. Then, once I find out more of what she is looking for I will start to hone in on the details. Can't wait!
