The past month I’ve been looking at homes with my daughter and her family. They sold their house and need to find a new one, pronto. They know I like looking at houses and sometimes ask me to tag along. Today’s lake cottage by Vive Workshop reminds me of some of the homes we’ve seen. This charmer with Southern roots is sure to capture your heart.
Step inside the front door and you’re immediately greeted by comfortable, cozy spaces. A dark accent wall highlights the dining room and really makes the chandelier and wood finishes stand out.
Although the cabinets are a creamy white, the kitchen emanates warmth and charm with a blue kitchen island and cross-back bar stools.
A black kitchen counter top adds drama and depth to the room, without feeling over-powering.
Modern furniture mixes with vintage pieces to create eclectic appeal in the lake cottage family room. A print of Spanish moss on a live oak tree gives a nod to the home’s Southern location.
Under-the-eaves bedrooms can be a challenge to decorate, but this one is nicely done with a two-tone paint treatment.
A black metal bed takes center stage in a child’s bedroom. Mixed patterns and colors on the bed create home style appeal.
You’ll find more mixed patterns in the master bedroom with its retro beach bather artwork.
