Lakeside Family Cottage

Photographer: Anice Hoachlander from Hoachlander Davis Photography, LLC Project Architect: Melanie Basini-Giordano, AIA

-----

Life in this lakeside retreat revolves around the kitchen, a light and airy room open to the interior and outdoor living spaces and to views of the lake. It is a comfortable room for family meals, a functional space for avid cooks, and a gracious room for casual entertaining.

A wall of windows frames the views of the lake and creates a cozy corner for the breakfast table. The working area on the opposite end contains a large sink, generous countertop surface, a dual fuel range and an induction cook top. The paneled refrigerator and walk-in pantry are located in the hallway leading to the mudroom and the garage. Refrigerator drawers in the island provide additional food storage within easy reach. A second sink near the breakfast area serves as a prep sink and wet bar. The low walls behind both sinks allow a visual connection to the stair hall and living room. The island provides a generous serving area and a splash of color in the center of the room.

The detailing, inspired by farmhouse kitchens, creates a warm and welcoming room. The careful attention paid to the selection of the finishes, cabinets and light fixtures complements the character of the house.

Does the black and white tile continue into the dining area? I will have a similar layout in a new home. I wish to use black and white tile in kitchen area but have been struggling with the idea of continuing the tile into the dining area. Look forward hearing from you.

Use sweep greens and browns, no florals, go with geometric fabrics, one cognac colored leather chair, have an office space with storage...easy care floors and/or carpets

Looks like Tansy Green by Sherwin Williams. I painted my kitchen cabinets this color and love it.

Question about this ceiling - Could you tell me the size of boards used? They look to be fairly flat against the ceiling and is such a nice neat look. The coifered ceiling is a bit cumbersome for my room. This looks perfect! A beautiful room.

The "beams" were made of 1x8 boards, so the beams are roughly 7-1/4" deep by 8-3/4" wide.

Thank you,
