Is there anything better than waking up, seeing big tall trees and a lake right in front of you? This traditional lake house is located in Minneapolis and it was designed by TEA2 Architects and the interiors are by Billy Benson Co.
The house exudes charm and beautiful decor, but what really makes this traditional lake house feel appealing is the comfort you can find in every room.
Nothing was overlooked, yet nothing became too precious. This house feels as the simple elements were added slowly, with a big emphases on timeless architectural design.
Traditional Shingle-Style Home
The architecture of this house is charming and timeless. The beautiful window box makes the curb-appeal of this lake house even more attractive. The plants in the second floor window box are lime green and purple Sweet Potato Vine and Canna Lily.
The roof and the gable end walls are both cedar shingles. Shingle color is a 50/50 mix of Cabot’s Bleaching Oil & Weathering Stain. The steps are bluestone.
I’m enchanted by the architecture of this space. Notice the curved walls and windows. Truly impressive.
The front door was custom-made.
Living Room Design
You can’t help by fall in love with the family room. perfectly designed and with incredible views of the lake.
The sofas are from Hickory Chair Furniture. The sofa fabric is from Highland Court – Barley Stripe.
The rug was custom designed and made by Aubry Angelo. Widows are by Marvin Windows.
Living Room & Kitchen
The fireplace stone is Northern Buff Limestone.
Paint Color: The trim and walls are Benjamin Moore Glacier White.
This island is exquisite. I love its design and how sculpture it feels in this space. I also like the windows and the glass doors on the cabinets.
The countertop is Arcadia granite. Also, notice there are three faucets. That’s a first for me! 🙂
The floors are stained walnut with hand distressing.
The traditional dining room is full of natural light.
Light fixtures are from Hammerton.
Beautiful details can be found in this room. The vanity is 36″w and it is from Black Wolf Designs. The sink can be found here. Wallpaper is by Romo.
What a great family room! I love the surprising red with the blue and white fabric.

This bedroom feels comfortable and playful. The cover is custom made; the fabric is Manuel Canovas – Rosa Union.

This space feels peaceful and elegant. The ottoman is from Kisabeth Furniture and the carpet, a combination of wool and linen, is from Aubry Angelo; the style is called Aria.
Paint Color: The trim is Benjamin Moore Glacier White – AC-40 and the wall is Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan HC-81.
This bathroom is so well designed that almost don’t feel like a bathroom. I simply love it!
The wall color (Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan HC-81) makes the space feel large and calm.
This is the kind of porch that can make me fall in love with the house. I often prefer light colored outdoor furniture because it feels calmer and beautifully contrasts with the landscaping.
The columns are approx 11′ tall and have a circumference (at the base) of approx 4′-6″ and the ceiling is Western Red Cedar with a clearcoat finish.

The landscaping was done by Matt Wilkens at Damon Farber.

The home and the views are marvelous. I really like the Western Cedar wood work.4000 finished square feet is a nice size home. This would be a nice home for Beaufort South Carolina.
We are trying to build our family home and love this design!!! Is there any way to get the floor plan?
