This recently purchased lakefront home was move-in ready. The vaulted great room, which included the primary living and dining area in one open space, had a beautiful tongue and groove ceiling with exposed wood beams along with a wall of windows overlooking Lake Lanier. The clients were challenged with trying to incorporate the furnishings from their previous traditional suburban home into their new environment.
We enlisted the services of a local custom cabinet company to design a built-in wall unit that would fit the clients’ large flat screen TV, components and interesting collection of books and accessories. A large custom leather sectional is the ideal space for relaxing, reading, watching TV and entertaining.
The area rug pulls together all of the colors used in the great room, and a grouping of the clients’ artwork above the sectional provides a pop of color.
A traditional matching dining room set is replaced with a round dining table that can expand to allow for additional seating. Comfortable dining chairs invite guests to linger longer and a natural seagrass area rug defines the space within the great room.
We selected a unique chandelier above the dining table in a more transitional style that complements the new furnishings. A large piece of artwork is custom sized and framed to fill an otherwise bare wall.
We finished the space by placing some key accessory items (not too many) in just the right places. Voila! Tom and Angela’s new lakefront home is ready for them to enjoy!
