Smith Lake cottage

Hey, it’s Doug…hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. The day back to work after a long weekend always seems rough, doesn’t it? I thought maybe today we could prolong the time off just a little bit longer by giving you a look inside of a lake house we designed at Silverock Cove on Smith Lake in Alabama. We created this house as a model home and it was so well received it sold mere days after we completed it!

The Living Room is a mix of striped fabrics combined with a pale blue canvas slipcovered sofa. The wall of windows overlooks beautiful Smith Lake.

Paige and I found these vintage botanical prints at Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta. They are hung on the wall with simple metal display clips.

We hung a vintage green industrial pendant over the custom designed wood and steel table. I worked with Dungan Nequette Architects, who master planned and designed all the homes at Silverock, to develop the interiors for the lakeside cottages found in the development. The kitchen design is simple and straight forward--perfect for a weekend getaway. Paint washed pine plank walls are found throughout the main level of the home.

At the top of the stairs, Hannon and I hung a vintage tobacco basket from our Rosemary Beach shop over a vintage green bench Paige's mom discovered for us. The newel post is a custom design we created.

The Master Bedroom has an amazing view of the lake! The ledge behind the bed is accessorized with a variety of objects including sleek task lamps from Ikea. A vintage chair from our Mountain Brook shop gives a cozy place to hang out and enjoy the view.

In one guest room we layered a vintage quilt found on Etsy with a duvet cover from Ikea and fun Thomas Paul pillows from our Mountain Brook shop.

Paige and I found this AMAZING painted flag chest at Scott's and bought it immediately for this fun is it?!? It's the perfect accent for another one of the home's Guest Bedrooms.

In the lower level Den, we created a cozy study area. We paired an antique oak desk with a vintage schoolhouse chair lacquered white. A vintage life preserver completes the vignette.

  2. Gorgeous work Doug! I love the rails on the staircase and the color of the kitchen cabinets. They look almost like zinc or dark metal.
