It’s time for a little summer getaway to the lake. Every day this week, we’ll be sharing pictures of our completed lake house project on Kentucky Lake in Eddyville, KY.
You’ve seen the construction photos over the past two years… remember these?
Well, it’s finished now! So, let’s start at the front door! (and please excuse the time stamp… it’s wrong, these were taken this weekend)
Makes you want to walk right in and grab a cocktail, right?
Let me break it down… the front door lets in a fabulous amount of light, but also required some privacy. The pretty little relaxed romans keep the outside out and the light in. Now about that bench… it’s a flea market find. Our Clare spotted this beauty at the fair grounds flea market and strapped it to her car and carried it home. We HAD to have it! Did you notice the art? There is more to that piece than meets the eye. It is the work of our beloved local artist, Amber Wallace, and has lots of loving details. The canvas is layered with pages from the house plans…. the actual blue prints. She painted them onto the background so the homeowner would have her very own piece of memorabilia on the wall. The colors were taken from our fabrics in the room. Any details I missed? Just ask…
This is the living room and it’s really where we began with interiors. Those geeeeorgeous beams hold a special place in my heart. We thought and thought and thunk some more about those. We wanted them to be just.right. and lead seamlessly into the trusses in the kitchen. I think we got there. It feels airy and fresh in the whole space. The fabrics on the sofa, pillows and ottoman were some of the first selections we made. The light fixture that is peeking out at the top of the photo has an entire story of it’s own. Remind me to tell you about on another post. (but don’t forget… it involves I-65, three police officers and potentially making it on the morning news)
On to the breakfast room. This little corner has some of the best views in the house… so it had to be great. We went with a farm table and colorful side chairs. The light fixture was quite a process. We fell in love with a birdcage chandelier… that is no longer in production. So what’s a girl to do? Hire an iron worker to make one, obviously. Can you tell from the picture that the rug has a pear on it? It’s called the Au Pear rug. Get it?
Okay. That’s Day 1. Hope you like it! We are heading to the master bedroom and bath tomorrow… see you then!
