Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

Designed by Barnes Vanze Architects, Inc, this lakefront cottage has a very happy, up-beat feeling. The interiors are relaxed, but also tailored, which is not always easy to do. The kitchen feels very fresh and it reminds me of a summer day, with its light green walls and beautiful floors.

The cottage, which sits on a two and a half acre wooded site, is located in a private community island on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay and was inspired by the homeowner’s previous home.

Take a look and be transported to summer!


Lakefront Cottage

Is there anything better than spend a sunny afternoon in the front porch just relaxing and feeling the warm breeze?

Come On In

This lakefront cottage feels very welcoming.

Front Porch

Lovely Front porch. The trim color is Benjamin Moore: White Dove.

Living Room

The decor feels very warm, but what you really can’t miss is the view of the lake. Simply beautiful!

Dining Room

I love the touch of turquoise brought into the room with the accessories. Light fixture is by Circa Lighting and the paint color is Farrow and Ball: Ball Green (#75).


Fresh Summer

This kitchen is perfect for a cottage. It’s full of charm and it’s not too serious. Range is by Wolf.


According to the architect, the “beams” were made of 1×8 boards. They’re roughly 7-1/4″ deep by 8-3/4″ wide.

Bedroom & Sitting Area

Oh, what a beautiful bedroom! I love the soothing color and decor, not to mention the view. Wall Color is Farrow and Ball Lulworth Blue (#89), Trim Color: White Tie by Farrow & Ball and Light Fixture is by Currey & Co.


The cottage is surrounded by nature.


Peaceful and colorful.

Isn’t this cottage simply perfect? I liked seeing the how every room has its own color, its own personality, yet everything blends so well together. Very inspiring and relaxing.

    Is the kitchen island also painted in Farrow and Ball: Ball Green (#75)? If not, what color is it? Very pretty!

  5. Hello Melle,

    Unfortunately, I don’t know the color of the island, but I don’t believe it’s Green #75. The island is lighter than that.

    Have a great day and thank you for stopping by, Melle.

    Hi Luciane,

    Being the persistent person that I am. I went on a internet quest to try to figure out what color was use. My conclusion, Cooking Apple Green No.32. Close enough for me!

    Thank you for your response!
    Melle 🙂

  7. Melle,

    I did the same thing and came w/ the same conclusion!!! LOL

    I got my Farrow & Ball paint samples and I got the same result. I believe this is it! 🙂
