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.
Built in bunks feature little windows, adding natural light to each bunk space. By adding a wing wall to support the bunks, a desk ledge area was created to act as a good drop zone for charging devices. The bold chartreuse green is pulled out of the rug and onto the doors and windows in the room!

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!
The kitchen has a clean, coastal feel in a transitional way. Designers added color in kitchen seating areas, notably by including simple navy blue Tolix stools. Subtle periwinkles, blues and seaglass tones dominate the kitchen area, even repeating the seaglass color on the island lighting, bringing in a pop of color in the island area.
A built in desk and storage shelves are the perfect homework spot in this girls bedroom. White walls and shelves contrast with the blue painted ceiling adding visual interest and pink accents match the rest of the room design.

White shiplap is a stunning focal point along with the stone fireplace surround. Blue accent walls really make the bright shiplap stand out in the space. Simple chairs with blue cushions and a stone coffee table make up the rooms furnishings.
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.
