Light-Filled Lakeside Living Space

White walls and neutral furnishings remake this beautiful home into a light-filled lakeside retreat. The family room portion of the open-concept living area was arranged to make the most of the view of the water through the open wall.

Neutral Fabrics Feature in Open-Concept Living Space

A pair of white occasional chairs accompany a linen sofa and fawn leather wingback chair as a relaxing gathering spot for fire-warming, lake-contemplation and TV-viewing in the family area. The light walls throughout this lovely home are punctuated with colorful original art, lending a splash of energy to the overall calm.

Effortless Entertainment With Wall of White Built-Ins

With an open layout shared between the kitchen, dining and family rooms, the light seamlessly flows. A delicately limewashed brick fireplace attends a neutral living space with pale gray walls and a built-in cabinet to accommodate both television and decorative objects. White crown molding and baseboard provide a gentle contrast to the gray.

Open-Concept Living Space Graceful in Neutrals

A fawn leather armchair and gray linen sectional provide casual and attractive seating for the open-concept family room in this lakeside retreat. A gently limewashed brick fireplace with floating wood mantle marries nicely with the light wood furnishings and floor.

White Country Kitchen Overlooks Sundrenched Breakfast Nook

A graceful white kitchen feels a little bit country with pale gray countertops atop white Shaker cabinets with black hardware. Contemporary white pendants overhang a working island. The open-concept space encompasses a breakfast nook, perfectly situated in a bay window for copious morning light.

Bay Window Breakfast Area With Banquette Seating

A contemporary orb chandelier in black and brass harmonizes beautifully with the geometric aspect of the bay windows in the breakfast area. The mixed dining suite consists of a black rectangular table, a set of pale wood chairs and a white banquette with colorful woven cushions.

Neutral Sitting Room for Relaxing or Work

The front sitting room of this waterside home features white wood shutters and white walls and millwork to make for a lovely bright space. A neutral ottoman and white slipcovered sofa join a wicker desk and chair with a neutral stripe to make for a calm and graceful space.

Cheery Coastal Style in Office Nook

A fun desk chair covered in a woven neutral fabric joins a pale wood desk with textured drawer fronts in the front sitting room. Original artwork overhangs the office nook to lend color and cheer to this calm, contemporary space.

Open Home Office Works in Color

With its cased opening left unadorned, a home-office is open for business. The walls feature gray textured wallpaper with white millwork complementing. The room is furnished with a contemporary slab-top desk and console cabinet as well as an olive-green velvet armchair, blue cabinet and leopard-print rug for color and cheer.

Spacious Game Room in Wood and White

A huge game room provides room for recreation in this redesigned lakeside retreat. Hand-hewn ceiling beams complement the hardwood floors and lend warmth against the white ceiling and walls. A casual seating area with a leather sectional and neutral armchairs is the place to judge in comfort the pool competition behind.

Fresh Gray-and-White Primary Bedroom

The primary bedroom is adorned in pale neutrals and coastal texture — the walls painted gray with white molding and the windows featuring gray linen shades. A white upholstered bed is dressed in white-and-gray cotton, and the bedside dressers are a lightly washed wood. The room features a beautiful bay window with a comfy hammock chair for relaxing with a book.

Minimalist Primary Bathroom With Classic Touches

The contemporary slab-front double vanity and cabinets in a medium wood lends warmth to the primary bathroom, with a white freestanding tub and sandstone-colored floor tile. Contemporary scones join a classic wool runner to finish the space.

Delightful Pink-and-White Child's Bedroom With Gold Accents

A delightful child's bedroom is kitted out in white and pink, with bright white walls and furnishings and a pink wavy wallpaper on the ceiling. A midcentury sun light in gold overhangs a sweet floral table. A custom bookcase with center bench seat keeps the space organized and offers a place for the pup to relax, with a little light competition from the charming rug with blue and pink accents.

Fun Gallery Wall Over Child's Desk

A modern brass table lamp attends the simple white desk in a child's bedroom. The desk is large enough to accommodate two acrylic and blue wood chairs. Simple steel cables create a photo gallery wall above.

Coastal Bedroom Offers Room for Relaxation

White walls and light wood flooring feature in a tasteful bedroom. A neutral bed with upholstered headboard is flanked by two light wood dressers, and a sweet bench with brass legs in a pale violet velvet rests at its base. A basket pendant light warms the light-filled space.

Light-Filled Bedroom Provides Tranquility in Blues

The guest bedroom has been painted a beautiful pale blue with a slightly darker window shade and accent pillows that are darker still, reminiscent of the sky and water outside. A rattan swing chair occupies the window corner, adding to the friendly coastal feel of the room.

Classic Colors and Modern Lines for Primary Bathroom Tile

The white brick wall tile in the primary bathroom is complemented by a gray mosaic on the floor and a black honeycomb on the accent wall behind the contemporary freestanding tub, for a classic monochromatic look.

Fashionable Furnishings for Child's Pink Bedroom

A child's bed sports a lovely rattan headboard and embroidered pink linens with woven pillows in pinks and blues. A lacquered pink nightstand with acrylic legs and drawer pulls accompanies the bed. The walls are painted a delicate white and the ceiling a sky blue.

Child's Desk Set Provides a Dip Into the Dramatic

The designers used the sweetest of white window shades with tiny rainbow ball fringe for this child's room. A white lacquered desk with acrylic and gold pulls is accompanied in high drama by a light-blue velvet armchair with fur throw pillow, a nice complement to the sky-blue ceiling.

Pink Child's Bathroom With Freestanding Tub

The child's bathroom features a pink vanity with white top and a freestanding tub atop a lightly veined marble floor. The walls are finished in a beautiful wallpaper in pastel hues. A gold-framed mirror, gold faucet and drawer pulls and a bright yellow bench lend a touch of dazzle to this sweet retreat.

Custom Wallpaper in Pastel Hues

Gorgeous custom wallpaper adorns the child's bathroom in pinks, purples, blues and whites. An arabesque gold-framed mirror and a pair of brass wall sconces overlook a pink vanity with white top.

Spacious Covered Patio With Outdoor Entertainment

The spacious covered patio features a brick fireplace with barnwood mantle and a vaulted shiplap-paneled ceiling. A pair of contemporary wood fans keep the space cool while the family relaxes in comfort in stylish outdoor furniture in coastal colored fabrics.

Firepit and Treehouse Accompany Lakeside Pool

The home features a lakeside outdoor pool with adjacent firepit set within gray pavers. A wonderful treehouse — a childhood essential — also provides exquisite views of the water.

Lakeside Pool in Flagstone Patio

Wire lanterns hang in the perfect climbing tree complete with treehouse, located between the home's pool and the private dock access to the lake beyond.

Poolside Firepit and Outdoor Dining

The pool's ample flagstone patio offers both a firepit and an outdoor covered dining area. The home's white exterior and black metal roof are a classy combination for this waterside abode with copious windows.
