Lake Lanier Home by Laura Ramsey Interiors
Rooms with a View
With summer coming to an end and Labor Day weekend right around the corner, the REstyleSOURCE team is dreaming of one last long weekend somewhere out of town. If you’re dreaming like us, take a peek at this stunning, light-filled lakehouse, a recent project by Georgia-based Laura Ramsey Furniture & Interiors. The perfect spot for a get-away-from-it-all vacation–or a restful place to live your everyday life, if you’re lucky!–we can just imagine curling up in one of the many comfortably upholstered chairs seen here and taking in that amazing view. This home is located on a gorgeous piece of land with a stunning view of northern Georgia’s Lake Lanier. A combination of natural stone and wood provided a design theme and added a hint of a rustic element to the house; it was Laura’s goal to bring the beautiful natural exterior setting into the home’s interior. We chatted with the Laura Ramsey design team for more details on this heavenly getaway by the lake…read on for more design details and check out some of our REtyleSOURCE product picks to help you get the look in your own space!
Lots of natural light streams through the giant windows located in the living area overlooking the lake. To keep with the relaxed feel of a lakehouse, the design team used light, comfortable upholstery in the living area. Detail and contrast were then added with the use of darker-toned chandeliers in the foyer, dining area, and kitchen.
“I love the amazing view off of the living room. The upholstered swivel chairs are perfect here, because you can either face the television and guest seating on the sofas, or else face the lake. What a great place to have coffee in the morning!”
The house is filled with handsome details such as dark stained beams and floors which contrast beautifully with the wood clad cream walls. The family’s antique center table is also placed in the foyer, along with a pair of more modern LEE bongo ottomans to help update & balance the look.
The home is filled with a lot of natural light. We wanted to keep the space clean and relaxed but also use pops of color where appropriate. Luckily the home owners love green, which is why you see it used throughout the home. From the detailing in the drapes, to the pillows on the sofa, and the LEE dining chairs, the touches of green left the home feeling vibrant but not overwhelming. Green is a great color for a lake house!
The green color scheme continues throughout the dining area with LEE Industries slipcovered dining chairs in Inca Pistachio, a cotton blend fabric with pin striped detailing. The designer then filled the rest of the dining table with simple linen slipcovered chairs, in keeping with the crisp, clean style of a classic lakehouse. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy breakfast with that kind of view?
