New Lake House – Serene Master Bedroom with a View

The homeowners and builder, MWG Custom Homes, made sure to take advantage of every opportunity to view the lake in this newly built home. The master bedroom was no exception.

The soft coastal color palette creates a relaxing vacation-home feeling that they enjoy each day.

The homeowners said they enjoy coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening in the extremely comfortable chaise loungers, which during the winter are faced into the room… come spring, they face outward towards the beautiful sunset.

The wall of windows mirrors those in the dining area at the end of the kitchen – adding balance to the exterior of the house facing the lake.

It was my pleasure to work on this stunning home. Special thanks to MWG Custom Homes and the Vann’s for including me in this beautiful project!

New Lake House… Family-friendly Great Room

When our homeowners were designing their new custom-built lake-front home, they had family and friends in mind.  Spaces were well thought-out, including the great room, where they would spend most of their leisure time with their two small children.

This family-friendly sofa, purchased by the homeowners, was the start of a super-comfortable space… perfect for movie nights with the kids.

The great room is designed for family living with a comfortable sectional and round reclaimed wood cocktail table – easy for toddlers and young kids to maneuver around. Custom details like the stone fireplace, custom built bookcases and coffered ceiling were designed based upon the customer wishes.

The gorgeous custom-built stone fireplace and bookcases, styled with personal family photos and finds, add warmth and personality to the space. Light and crisp paint colors are bright, fresh and on-trend, while the wall of windows frame the view of the lake. Truly a “great room” to come home to!

New Lake House… Kitchen with a View

A recent design project with MWG Custom Homes introduced me to Kelly and Judd, homeowners who contracted MWG to build their dream home on a serene lake in Central New York.

Kelly and Judd wanted a kitchen designed to entertain family and friends – truly the heart of the home.  The end result was a stunning kitchen with an amazing view of the lake.

Kitchen in a mix of beige, gray and white – one of my favorite kitchens to date! The backsplash features a tile that the homeowner fell in love with… and you can see why:}

Beauty and function – this kitchen can handle more than one cook in the kitchen. Perfect for making family dinners and entertaining guests.

This kitchen was built for entertaining… with a huge kitchen island to the right; a wine bar island in the center; and a water-view dining area at the left (waiting for the arrival of the homeowners custom-built round dining table). All have a view to the lake thanks to a stunning round wall of windows. We chose an eclectic mix of lighting that adds interest to the space. We handled the seating for the counter, wine bar and dining table with the same principle – coordinating not necessarily matching.

With a large built-in wine/beverage cooler close at hand, the wine bar island is a welcoming spot to relax after a long day.

The dining table will be well worth the wait. Can you imagine dinners with the sunset on the lake?!

This kitchen project is almost complete – our dining chairs are ready… just waiting for the arrival of the custom-built round walnut and metal dining table.  A smart purchase by the homeowner.  Can’t wait to see it!
