This is the time of year when we are all dreaming of sitting on a dock at the lake, cruising in a fast boat, or just sitting on the beach, enjoying a cold beverage and reading a book. Those lazy days of summer. When I saw this beautiful lake house in Alabama from House Beautiful drop in my inbox, I just had to share it with you too.
I heard from the architectural firm that designed this house, McAlpine Tankersley, and this home is on Lake Martin. I know for a fact that the state of Alabama has some beautiful lakes. Lake Martin, for one is gorgeous. I had the pleasure of seeing it a few times when I was living there. This house is just gorgeous, so enjoy the views. I did see that this is a primary residence for the family that lives here and not just a weekend retreat.
They called this the tipsy chandelier, I can definitely see why. The “drunken” wood-and-iron chandelier is a French antique.
Love this view!
Sun rays were salvaged from an Italian church. Windows are painted Dragon’s Breath by Benjamin Moore.
Wasn’t that dreamy? I haven’t been invited to any lake houses like this, but wow what a treat that was!
Hope you are all enjoying your summer too.
