Do you ever dream about how you would decorate a second home if you ever had the chance? I do.
For instance, I often dream about how I would decorate a beach house if I ever had the chance. Or a mountain cabin. Or a lake house. Or a guest cottage.
This is one of those day dreams I hope to see fulfilled. One of these days.
In the meantime, I oooh and ahhh over the ones I see online.
And in this case…the one I got to sleep in.
As with many second homes, this house is filled with a mix and match of furniture, bedding and accessories repurposed for lake house living.
Nightstands and beds get spruced up with a bit of green paint.
Dated lamps and lamp shades, now painted pink, have a new life at the lake.
Childhood trundle beds and quilted bedding re-purposed as a place of rest for sleepy family members.
The wall of windows in this bedroom looks straight out across the lake where you’re greeted with a lakeside sunrise every morning.
Breathtaking, if you’re up early enough to catch it!
Cotton sheets and ultra soft blankets are the perfect ending to long exhausting days in the sun.
And it doesn’t hurt at all that everything is just as cute as it is comfortable.
This bedroom holds two (only one shown) queen size beds decked out in blue and pink.
A bit of a reoccurring theme here…blue, pink and floral.
The window treatments are simply twin flat sheets hung from clip rings.
The Jack-n-Jill bathroom connects this bedroom with the bedroom shown at the top of this post.
This is a great example of the often necessary combining of new and old in remodeling…pairing the aqua bowl sink, modern faucet and new counter tops with the existing mirror and yellow tile.
These bedrooms could easily argue the point that a good night’s sleep may be more attainable if you’re sleeping in a cute room.
There’s an equally cute kitchen to go along with these cute bedrooms.
