Lake Hhouse. Inspiring Lake House. #LakeHouse

Located in Lake Keowee, South Carolina, this lake house with transitional interiors uses the natural contours of its site to open three levels of living space to beautiful views of a tranquil lake. Expansive water views are visible from all of the key living spaces.

An inviting  foyer with reclaimed tongue and groove oak ceiling and neutral ship lap wall paneling delivers a sense of elegance and airiness. The same graceful feel extends to the transitional kitchen with custom white cabinets and to other more intimate spaces.

The architect Thomas J. Markalunas, from Markalunas Architecture Group, envisioned a family-friendly first floor plan, consisting of living, dining, kitchen and exterior patios to entertain family and friends.

Start the week dreaming with this beautiful home which features inspiring transitional interiors.

 It’s wonderful to have you here today! I hope you could relax during the weekend and feel completely ready for this brand new week that’s starting.

As I mentioned before, I am celebrating my birthday today and I spent my Sunday baking my favorite cake with my kids. Even my 2 y/o helped! I literally spent my whole afternoon baking it and I won’t lie, I am exhausted! I can barely feel my legs! LOL

You know… there many things that are going on in my life at this moment. I am trying my best to find peace since my grandmother’s passing and this will be my first birthday without her. I can’t say that it will be easy, but I am surrounding myself with my husband and my kids’ love and I know I will have a good day.

Life is about adjusting yourself with the changes and finding a way to become whole once again.

Today, I embrace the necessary changes for my growth and the growth of my faith. Today, I also embrace gratitude, because for everything we loose, for once was given to us.

Hold on tight everything that matters to your life. Show your gratitude and don’t delay on living.

with Love,

I would also like to know the color of the white ship lap, looks whiter but bathrooms look tan?

[…] Favorite stairs. Favorite porch. […]

This home is gorgeous and the lighting selections are the Jewels to the project!

What manufacture is the Breakfast Nook light fixture from? Really would like to find out!


LOVE your herringbone tile in the bath!!!! Do you remember the brand.
Thanks so much,

I’m loving the French doors with the 3/4 glass and wood on the bottom. Do you know where they can be purchased? I have looked locally and can not find a similar match.
Thank you!

i love the area rug in the picture of the foyer. Is it possible to find out more about the rug to order one? Thanks for any assistance.

Gorgeous!! What material was used for the paneled walls? I’m loving that!

Is the house plan published somewhere for this home?

I love the stain color on the ceiling in the “Foyer” and “Let’s Cook” photos. Can you tell me what it is and the type of wood used?

Love the lakeside house. Where did the kitchen island lights and the light over the Bullard table come from. Would love to have a very scaled down version of the house for my self.

Best Regards,
Madonna Lynn

Can you tell me where to get the lighting fixtures over the island and the breakfast nook?

I found the kitchen lanterns. If you zoom in you’ll notice a clover design around the edge. So I googled “Clover Lantern” and they popped up!

Visual-Comfort-CHC2155 Aged Iron with Wax
Clover 6 Light Square Lantern

Does anyone know which part of the Lake this is on?

Hello, can you please tell me the source where I can purchase the rug in the dining room of this Lake house,thank you!
