Plush love seats are arranged around a wooden coffee table on an upper levels of the terraced lakehouse. The seating area overlooks the boathouse and waters of Horseshoe Bay through windows that maximize the use of daylight.
Five wicker chairs with cream-colored cushions are seated around a low coffee table. The seating area overlooks the surrounding plant-life and Horseshoe Bay, and a set of French doors leads back into the lakehouse. A challenge to the overall design of this home was to blend the casual lifestyle of lake living with an over-arching aesthetic that was at once both vernacular and sophisticated. Jay Corder and his team reinvented and crafted rough materials to successfully blend these competing notions.
Skip the demolition phase and keep the base of your current kitchen island to save money. Georgia designer Beth Johnson created a much larger island by using the base of the homeowner’s original island to support a larger countertop. She painted it and added molding to look like wainscotting. She replaced the dated laminate with HanStone quartz, and installed legs to support the counter’s extended width and length.
A huge deck gets prime lake views and the lake itself is just a short stroll away (through pretty trees, no less!). The outdoor space is smartly divided with a dining table on one side and a conversational grouping on the other. Stairs down from the deck are situated right in the middle.
This combined kitchen, living space and dining room are perfectly coordinated in this coastal design theme.
Subtle periwinkles, blues and seaglass tones dominate the space, even repeating the seaglass color on the island lighting, which was painted to match the color palette in the space and bring in a pop of color in the island area. Warm, toasty white oak shiplap was chosen to balance the practical floor tile that would take all the abuse from kid traffic.
This hallway connects the mudroom to the new powder room. The floor to ceiling shiplap makes this hallway something special. Designer Kristina Crestin started collecting vintage 5’s and used this hall to display them in a creative way.
Once a wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area, this nook is now a treasured retreat. By flooring the once open space and adding a window seat, bookcases and table, this is now a cherished spot to lounge and read a book, do homework or play a game.
Located beside the pool, this bathroom is just bright and fun. A white wallpaper with a scribble paper is whimsical and interesting. Ceilings are painted a soft, muted blue that adds color reminiscent of the sky and is relaxing.
Obviously, the fish wallpaper is adorable and eye-catching in this powder room. But don't overlook the other creative design in this small space. The window was strategically placed to allow a mirror to be installed and to have a unifying trim. The window sill extends, capturing the backsplash thickness. The floating vanity has a toilet paper recess for stashing multiple rolls, making it quick and easy so no one ever has to change a roll of toilet paper!
A little boys dream room always includes a rock climbing wall! This is certainly an active way for little ones to get to their bunk. The bold chartreuse green color was matched from the rug and used on doors and windows in the room.
A wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area became a newly found space with the design of this cozy space. By adding a floor, designer Kristina Crestin was able to carve out this little nook. A deep, long window seat with pillows and reading lights is perfect for lounging. Bookcases were built in to the awkward sloped ceiling, creating one of the kids most favorite places.
