Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

Beach House-A Nantucket Beach House to Just Unwind In

Beach House-A Nantucket Beach House to Just Unwind In

Even know this house is located in Nantucket, which is surrounded by salt water, this gorgeous house is located on a lake. (it maybe a salt lake-most likely) The lake house is a vacation home you can truly unwind in. I love the easy-flowing floor plan and the white slip-covered furniture, which is kid-friendly because it has been made with stain resistant fabric.

The kitchen was designed to be the hub of the house. The cottage style open-kitchen combines the kitchen, dining room and a breakfast nook, even has your own library ladder to reach the higher cabinets. The ladder is practical and a pretty detail. I can picture the family gathering for a morning breakfast, before heading out for a day on the lake, and then coming home and meeting in the kitchen , preparing a plate of cheese and crackers to bring outside to enjoy the end of the day. Nantucket summers are short in length, but if you’re lucky enough to enjoy a summer there..it will definitely be unforgettable.

The designer, Amy Studebaker uses white as the primary palette for the lake house’s interior and adds warmth and dimension to the house by using a variety of warm textures, designer worthy antique furniture and pops of color. The backyard has an incredible view of the lake, and if you think the house wows you, the infinity pool will leave you drooling, the pool is stunning and looks like it melts right into the lake. …so beach pretty.

A lovely porch, inviting adirondack chairs to sit in and watch the sun say good night.

The entry way.

An all Americana Breakfast Nook.

An open-flowing kitchen which combines the kitchen, dining area and breakfast nook..perfection for a summer vacation home..it is all about family time.

Cottage style-white slip covered furniture…

Vintage bathroom vanity is a refreshing look…with round port-hole inspired mirrors..

This bedroom reminds me of a darling bedroom you would find in a Captain of a boat’s home.

This bathroom is so pretty, what a perfect spot to finish the day …soaking in a gorgeous bathtub as you overlook the stars shining on the lake… and the distressed wood bathroom vanity adds a visual pop of color…

What a great bedroom for the kids to share with each other the day’s adventures…and maybe a few ghost stories.

On the lower level, the game room.

As I said, the star of the show is the infinity pool and the lake…
