lakeside relaxation


What could be more peaceful than lounging poolside, on the quiet shores of a secluded lake?  That’s exactly the setting you’ll find at the Silverock Cove Pool House.  Silverock Cove is a community of lakeside homes located on Smith Lake, near Crane Hill, Alabama (about 45 minutes north of Birmingham).  Silverock Cove was master planned and designed by our sister company Dungan Nequette Architects.  Doug worked with the architectural team to design the interior details of the homes, as well as to select the exterior paint color schemes for the community.  We’ve already furnished a model home in the development and recently we completed furnishing the new Pool House as well.

Designed as a social center for the initial phase of the development, the Pool House features an Owner’s Lounge, restroom facilities, a small catering kitchen and most importantly–an incredible view of the infinity edge saltwater  pool and Smith Lake beyond!



In the main Lounge area we placed a cozy moss green velvet sofa and durable aged leather club chairs.  Chunky stump-like lamps, a nickel-plated antler lamp with a wooden shade and playful turtle-printed pillows relate the decor of the space to the lakeside surroundings.  Rustic barnwood siding–with its original paint intact–covers the end walls of the space while hand-built steel windows along the length of the space erase the line between interior and exterior.


The steel windows were built on site by Greenbottle Workshop–the same group which installed similar windows in the Hopkins Finley Residence master bedroom addition, which was recently featured [here].

The exterior of the building features horizontal siding with translucent panels beyond, causing the building to glow like a lantern at night.
