Luxury Lake House Project

This lake house was not missing the incredible view or stunning outdoor entertainment space; however, the interior was in need of a design renovation that would reflect the magnificent exterior. As soon as Shae and Holly saw this space, they knew there was incredible potential for a luxurious design. The client is beautiful, stylish, and adventurous, which made her willing to take design risks. Shae and Holly wanted to weave her personality (and desire for comfort!) into the dynamic new layout. The lower level renovation would require contractors, materials selections, and a detailed design plan for the project. The SDS team began by creating 3D design renderings for a total kitchen transformation, including the removal of several walls. The existing small dining room was converted into a magnificent walk-in panty with an oversized fridge and freezer. The large keeping room was transformed into the new extravagant dining space with lake views that is now perfect for parties and entertaining. After opening up the kitchen footprint by removing walls, the design team anchored the dream kitchen by incorporating a custom 9-foot island with stunning quartz countertops and dramatic light fixtures.

Shae and Holly then began working on the custom furniture for the rest of the lower level. The large living room was the perfect place for an oversized sectional, which they covered in a performance fabric that protects against stains, spills, and odors. Given the amount of light coming in from the reflection of the lake, the SDS design team wanted to make sure the custom, tailored draperies were as functional as they were beautiful. To enhance the lake views, the SDS team used a neutral color palette and large scale prints. Layering textures and patterns made this luxurious design rich in detail. Even the selected rugs, hand-knotted out of soft bamboo, silk, and wool, add another layer to this dynamic design. To synchronize and balance the other elements, finishing touches and accessories were brought in from the Shae Design Showroom located in Franklin Square.
