Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Hello, my wonderful friends! How are you today? I have been working on this lake house tour for the last three days and I truly can’t wait to share it with you. This home has the best of everything… Modern Farmhouse architectural details and a lake view that will leave you in awe!

Here, the talented designer and architect, Benchmark Design Studio, shares some insights on this project:

“Classic lake home architecture infused with contemporary sentiments defines this remarkable beachfront residence. Inspired to be both bold and timeless, the project—from early sketches to the final modern masterpiece—was a collaborative effort between Mike Schaap Builders, Inc and Benchmark Design Studio and illustrates how when it comes to modern luxury, the difference is always in the details.”

This home is actually for sale, so feel free to contact the designer for further details. 🙂
