Lake Home with Beautiful Interiors


Perched on a hill overlooking lower Lake Minnetonka in Minnetrista, Minnesota, this striking lake home designed by Stonewood, LLC, suggests endless water recreation and peaceful views.

At 6,500 square feet, there is ample size, but the home’s features – artful millwork details, beautiful woodwork, radiant heating, intricate hand-carved limestone fireplace surround, and wraparound front porch – make the home cozy and livable.

Even though this home was staged for sale, you can feel inspired by its beautiful interiors, spacious kitchen and soothing neutral color palette.

I hope you have a good time here.


Lake Home with Beautiful Interiors

A view of the beautiful Lake Minnetonka.


This house has five bedrooms and six bathrooms.


I always enjoy seeing homes that are designed to take advantage of its views.

Front Entry

A wrap-around porch make this entry feel very inviting.


A spacious foyer welcome guests with timeless vintage-inspired furnishings.

Paint Color

Benjamin Moore  Revere Pewter HC-172.

The entire main floor is painted in Revere Pewter HC-172.

Living Room

 Great decor and architecture are found in this living room.

  Home Decor

The large sea urchin on top of the coffee table is by Oly.

Sofa on left is by Hickory White.


The beams bring character and adds warmth to the space. Also, note the stone fireplace and the built-in on the left. The door on the right leads you to a screened porch.


This spacious kitchen is perfect for entertaining! It has a huge island and it opens to a cozy den and butler’s pantry.

Light & Dark

I love the combination of white cabinets and dark stained island. It creates a nice balance between white and dark cabinetry.

Island Pendants

The geometric pendant lights are the “Amethyst Ceiling Lamp Small”, similar to the “Steel Polyhedron Pendant by Restoration Hardware”.

Dark Kitchen Island Paint Color

Stools would be better if replaced for upholstered ones.

Backsplash & Countertop

There is a travertine subway tile on as the backsplash under the hood with a natural stacked stone acting as the backsplash under the cabinetry.

Countertop is cashmere granite.


Range is a Wolf 48-Inch Gas Range with Charbroiler and Griddle.


Wouldn’t it be nice to cook here with a view like that?


This is a neutral kitchen that feels warm and very calming.

Eating Area

The eating area mixes interesting pieces together, from a hammered metal top dining room table to French-inspired chandelier and chairs.


Table is the “Bernhardt Quentin Dining Table”.

Butler’s Pantry

This butler’s pantry is perfect! I love the cashmere granite countertop and the white wine cooler.

Light Fixture

Light fixture is the Capiz Pendant by Pottery Barn.


The butler’s pantry leads to a powder room and mudroom.


The mudroom has a practical built-in bench that offers extra storage.


A screened porch is my kind of porch… they keep all the bugs away while you can still enjoy the warm breeze.


A gorgeous fireplace is the focus point in the room, maybe loosing just to the stunning lake views.

Fireplace stone is Tennessee Field Stone.


Perfect spot to watch sunsets…

Home Office

This cozy home office was efficiently designed with cabinets that offers plenty of storage.

Powder Room Paint Color

I love the warm greige paint color in this powder room. Also, notice the stencils on the ceiling.

Similar Greige Paint Color: “Farrow and Ball Elephant’s Breath”.

Floors & Staircase

Gorgeous hardwood flooring!

Landing Area

 Beautiful iron spindles and newel posts.


Great bookshelves are found in this level.

Master Bedroom

Double doors welcome you to the master bedroom.

Bedroom Design

This bedroom is stunning! I love the expansive lake views you get from here!


Although this bedroom was staged, the decor is pretty and it has the ideal scale for the size of the room.


Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up with a peaceful view like that?


The master bathroom is very spacious – like almost every other room in this house!


This bathroom offers double vanities and a separate vanity area.

Marble Shower

Shower tiling is Bianco Carrara Marble.


Beautiful windows and freestanding tub.

Laundry Room

 Laundry rooms should always be practical and offer plenty of counter space. This is a laundry room done right!


The basement in this home is great for entertaining. It has a fairly large family room, billiards room, bar and wine room.

Invite Your Friends Over

The view of the entire space. Isn’t it a fun basement?

Billiards Room Design

The papier-mâché animal sculptures add some drama to the billiards’s room.


 The bar and wine room were nicely designed. It’s masculine but far from tasteless.

Family Room

The family room opens to the expansive backyard and lake.

Guest Bedroom


Neutral colors are always a smart idea for guest bedrooms. They’re soothing and can please anyone.

Guest Bathroom

Separating the sink area from the shower is a wise idea when it’s a shared bathroom.


 Beautiful architecture and grounds.


 The property is very private and it has direct access to the lake.


This would be an excellent place to have al fresco dinners.


Waterfront living can be truly special.


Just bring your kayak!

Home Sweet Home

This home was sold in 2012 for almost $2.2 mil. Have any thoughts on the price?

Interior Design Ideas: Paint Color


 Hi, everyone! Did anyone have a peaceful weekend? It was nice around here… the weather still insane (it took me many, many hours to complete this post since our powder kept going on and off all day long) and we’re going through yet another snow/rain storm. Please tell me you had a nicer weather where you are! :-)

So, since the weather didn’t cooperate, we stayed at home, cooked together, watched TV and I did some laundry. Exciting? Nope, but I live for these quiet, “we-have-nothing-to-do” kind of days…

Wishing you all a very calm, healthy and Blessed week.

with Love,
