Is anyone else out there in need of a little summer inspiration today? If so, you came to the right place. Today's featured online design plan was created for Jason and Karen's brand new lakefront home.
The main feature in this space is the amazing panoramic view of the lake from six large windows. We took our design queue from the water and got to work creating a sophisticated nautical inspired living room.
We positioned their furniture in a way that allows easy access to the deck where they will spend most of their time. This arrangement also provides a pretty view of the new living room from the deck. You can see in the true-to-scale illustration above that we placed a sofa table behind the sofa, this dresses up the back of the piece.
You can also see that we incorporated a large (11 foot long) built in media unit with custom bookcases. It will look similar to the image above. This will also be a beautiful feature to see when looking into the space from the deck.
We chose a color palette of warm grays and sandy beiges.
We added color, texture and pattern in pillows and accessories.
Nautical accent pieces, like this beautiful rope mirror and a gray-washed wicker wing chair add to the relaxed lake front living flavor of this design.
Solid colored upholstery make the sofa and side chairs timeless. Mixing a tan sofa with gray chairs breaks up the set and keeps the room interesting.
Tri-colored striped drapery were recommended to frame the windows. This will highlight the lake view beautifully. We suggested the fabrics shown above to the left; white, jute and charcoal. These drapes can be made in 26 different colors, for more information on them please email me at: TheYellowCapeCod@yahoo.com.
Extra large beach inspired art and a set of character rich oars were used as large-scale wall decor.
In addition to the products shown here, we provided a custom paint color suggestion, step-by-step instructions on implementing their new design, and a complete product source list that included additional products (side chair, occasional tables, console table, additional art options, accessories).
Thank you, Karen and Jason for giving us the opportunity to design this space. Congratulations on your beautiful new home!
