Meet Kelly, with Lily Pad Cottage, an almost brand new blogger who has been at it for just a few months. She lives in Michigan with her hubby and two adorable kiddos and they built the most gorgeous lake home that I was just dropping my jaw over. The views are stunning and Kelly has done a fabulous job of making this architecturally pretty house a home for her family.
You’re going to love it!
I couldn’t help but add a pic of Kelly and her cute as can be kidlets. What a pretty family.
The exterior of their lake house has shingles that I love. I’m always a sucker for shingles that give that Nantucket feel. Check out the pretty window boxes too.
And this is the back yard. I know, I’m jealous too! Isn’t that gorgeous, to see this view every day?
From the back of their house, the lake view is right there. The living room windows are huge for I’m sure that reason.
Kelly’s style is so pretty, traditional, cottage, modern, so inviting and warm. I love the fireplace tile and the built ins in all white.
And she’s got my fave color palette of blues and greens with plenty of white to keep it all calm. With a water view, you just have to have some blues going on.
Closer look at the dining room table.
I adore Kelly’s kitchen. She’s got a nice island/peninsula that divides the kitchen from the family room.
Of course, I love the open shelves and white subway tile. So gorgeous and so much my taste too!
Beautiful dark hardwood floors and white Shaker cabinets. We’ve been reading the same playbook, Kelly!
Kelly’s master bedroom is calming in soft blues, grays and white.
And again, the view! I can hardly stand it, what a crazy beautiful view. Kelly, you must feel like you’re on vacation every single day.
If the view from the bed isn’t enough to have you drooling, check out the soaker tub and those big windows. Hello gorgeous water!
Kelly got her wish for marble countertops in the master bath and it is just so pretty and calming too. Again, look at the view reflected in the mirror.
Her daughter’s room is charming in pink and green.
And her son’s nursery is masculine, yet calming as well. She did those plank walls by herself. Impressed, I am!
The playroom got a makeover with lots of blue and white and it is so charming and functional for a family.
Last but not least, the mudroom which I’m sure is a space used constantly. This family has to spend a lot of time outdoors. I know I would if I had that in my backyard.
Thanks, Kelly, for letting me share your amazingly beautiful lake home in Michigan. I hope you’ll all go over and say hello to Kelly, I know she and Lily Pad Cottage would love to meet you!
