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!
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.
Lovely Front porch. The trim color is Benjamin Moore: White Dove.
The decor feels very warm, but what you really can’t miss is the view of the lake. Simply beautiful!
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).
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.
