Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

When I first saw this lake cottage I knew it was a special place, not only for its striking architecture, but also because of its surroundings. 

Designed by MAC Custom Homes, this cottage grabs your attention the moment you set your eyes on it. With the red exterior, I am sure the architect had this purpose in mind. But the exterior is not the only thing that surprises, the interior of this lake cottage is also very interesting.

While many homeowners nowadays prefer to paint any woodwork they find, this cottage displays all of its pine walls, cabinets and ceilings with pride.

I actually have to say that I felt surprised by how warm the space seems to feel with the natural wood. But if that isn’t for you, I am sure you’ll love the second floor of the cottage. The bedrooms, bathrooms and the bunk room are very neutral — and painted!

This lake cottage doesn’t stop there. There is also a detached guesthouse with a great mudroom, laundry room and a very practical pet shower.

Here, you’ll find a lake cottage that is perfect for entertaining… you can bring the whole family to spend summer with you. There’s plenty of space for everyone!

Enjoy!

Lake Cottage

Beautiful shingles (painted in a red exterior paint) and metal roof. I also love the expansive deck.

 

Kitchen

I can see many people just saying to themselves now: “Why didn’t they paint the ceiling? I would…” Right? I get what you’re saying and I admit that was the 1st thing that came to my mind too, but I have to applaud them for keeping the ceiling this way.

This is not yet another copy-cat kitchen and I love that! 😉

Country & Cottage-y

I really like the color of the painted cabinet with the natural wood. It’s really warm and welcoming.

Space

Great space with an inspiring design.

Family Room

No, I won’t pass the bucket with white paint! 🙂

I have to say that if this was mine someone would have to hold me to not paint this entire space (just being honest here), but this doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I actually think it’s great for a cottage in the woods, by the lake like this one. But I would be very tempted… how about you?

Dining Room

The dining table is huge and perfect to have everyone eating at one place!

Using a bench on the opposite side of the table allows even more guests to seat.

Scrabble

Got too many scrabbles during Christmas and don’t know what to do with it? Here’s an idea! 🙂

Jokes apart, isn’t it clever?

Bedroom

This bedroom has nice lake views and fantastic built-ins!

Small Bathroom

Don’t you just love this bathroom? Oh, yes, they painted the pine here! 😉

All Love

Oh, I love everything about this bathroom… the floors, walls, ceilings… everything!

Bunk Room

This bunk room is full of great ideas!

Kids

Can you picture how much fun the kids would have here? Pillow fights, anyone?

Gray

Great gray floors and walls.

Built-ins

These built-ins are fantastic, especially in a shared space like this one.

Kids Bathroom

The bathroom has a great (and huge!) sink and great light fixtures. I love the classic black & white look!

Loft

If the bunk room wasn’t big enough for all of your family/friends, you can still find more space at this loft-style bedroom.

Desk Built-ins

Smart and spacious computer station.

Cottage

The cottage is surrounded by nature.

Deck

What a wonderful place to relax.

Guesthouse

The guesthouse is perfect to get ready for the lake… all the mess and wet feet mark stays there!

Turquoise Mudroom

This mudroom feels bright, happy and uncomplicated. Love it!

Puppy Shower

If you have a pet, you know you would love to have a pet shower. Am I right?

Storage

Plenty of storage. I love the paint color.

Laundry Room

This is not a big laundry room, but it’s very practical and not mention, gorgeous!

 

Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

 I hope you enjoyed seeing this lake cottage today. Now, you tell me… would you paint all of that pine? 🙂

Wishing you all a very peaceful and healthy day.

Focus on that today… Aim peace and health!

    The sense I get from this home is – fun times & memories galore! I can just imagine lots of little bare feet running around, night time story telling and tucking in a lot of precious children/grandchildren in those special bunk rooms 🙂

  2. Katherine said,

    What an amazing home – you certainly know how to find them. I love the kitchen – it makes a change to see something different to a white painted one, although I have to say the Family Room would certainly get painted if it was mine 😉

  3. Cheryl said,

    I am in love! Love the red exterior, I don’t know if I would be that brave but I love it. Love the scrabble tile newel post, nice bit of whimsy. Love that they didn’t whitewash or paint all of the wood – although I would be seriously tempted to paint those built ins in the family room. I would really struggle with not painting out a bit of the wood, just a tiny bit. The bunkrooms rock. Pet shower…they’ve thought of everything.

  4. Kim & Cottage Coastal Store said,

    loved this tour! thank you!!

  5. Melissa said,

    Some wonderful ideas for catering to the needs of a large number of kids.
    Loved the scrabble newel post. Did you notice one side had lots of names spelt out? I made out GRANNY, CHARLES, MATT, THERESE, ROBERT, and MEGAN.
    So many fun and practical ideas. Thanks for this.

  6. Faye said,

    A very individual home. I think I would paint some of the wood, but the kitchen ceiling I would leave well alone..it is lovely! Some wonderful ideas.

  7. Carolyn said,

    What a lovely and charming vacation home! I think the natural pine evokes the feel of cabins and camps of yore. I like the mix of finishes shown here, but I also like the warmer glow that a more golden, honey finish on the pine would provide. Here it’s lightened to keep it from being so dark, but I love the cozy snug feel of those older cabins with their honey colored wood walls and ceilings.

  8. Kelly said,

    Where did the sink come from? The triple faucet sink? Company? Website? I love it!

  9. Michele said,

    For the red lake cottage, did they apply any stain to the knotty Pine walls? Thank you

  10. Hi Michelle,

    I don’t have this information but feel free to contact the designer.

    Thank you,

    Luciane @HomeBunch
