This coastal farmhouse style lake house is casual and comfy and the full time resident of an empty nester couple! A year’s long search for the perfect home that will serve them well in years to come is decorated with a refreshing style. And the view is amazing, so let’s learn more about Lisa’s journey and style!
As most of our home tours these are regular folks that I’ve gotten to know on Instagram over the years. Rather than just grabbing homes from the internet, I enjoy sharing real people and their lives. You like it too and it’s always appreciated when you leave comments and visit the homeowner’s links as well! That being said…find Lisa at A Simply Styled Nest, so head over and follow her! Let’s get started with the tour…
The exterior of Lisa’s self described coastal farmhouse style home is modern and up to date. However, like many our homes it was far from perfect when Lisa and her husband first set their eyes on it. When you see the difference of this view above and the image below, it’s dramatic. Before…and the value of the power of paint!
They fell in love with the waterfront view while searching for a lake home. I mentioned to Lisa I remember this lake well, as we used to go boating there with our kids and family who live in Charlotte.
Coastal Farmhouse Style Lake House Tour
Fall porch is ready for fall at Lisa’s lake house…
And a colorful Christmas. Note how the steps have been painted a darker color which is probably a more practical choice.
“I’m Lisa and so excited to be one of Janet’s home tours! I have 3 grown sons in 3 different states and my husband and I have been married for 32 years. I was a Kindergarten teacher for years and then stayed home for many raising my boys…but my forever passion is interior decorating. I love color!”
“My husband and I grew up close to fresh water lakes…and it is so wonderful how life has come full circle!”
“Four years ago the youngest of our 3 sons left for college. After 23 years in the same house raising them we began house hunting for a place close to a large airport to ease my husband’s work travel. We also were dreaming that we would find our retirement home near a lake so our children would have a place to come and bring their families and we could make lots of memories.”
“After an exhaustive 2 years of seeing dozens of houses we found our diamond in the rough on Lake Wylie in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our home is not new…it was built in the early 90’s and needed lots of updates and TLC! “
“We moved in to our forever lake house…a dream come true….in April of 2019.”
“Our house had great “bones” so we were quite happy to move in and begin tackling lots of projects. Our first big one was painting the brick exterior white and the dock and deck spaces gray.”
“Next I added open shelves to the kitchen for displaying some favorite pieces.”
Lisa mixed in watery blues, natural wicker and oodles of white paint to define her coastal farmhouse style.
“I then painted our outdated marble and gold fireplace and surround”
Note the use of texture and vintage books grouped by color!
“And finally, I painted and retiled the laundry room in our coastal farmhouse style home.”
“We replaced all of the old aluminum blinds with bamboo shades and painted throughout the house to give it a coastal cottage feel.”
“My style is a mix of modern farmhouse, cottage and coastal…and I always want it to feel casual, cozy, and welcoming!” A great coastal farmhouse style!
“Soft blues are my favorite and I love mostly neutral furniture with pops of color added with accessories, textiles, and artwork…and I love changing my color accents seasonally and just when I’m inspired!”
The Foyer – Coastal Farmhouse Style
Seasonal Stylings In The Dining Room
“Our lake house is situated on a cozy cove and our sunroom with all of the window views and access to our upper patio is where you will find us when we aren’t sunset cruising in the lake!”
“Our home is definitely a dream come true!”
Master Bedroom With A Water View
“Future projects for us here are adding new landscaping and a vegetable garden, a master bathroom complete renovation, adding a rustic stone fireplace surround with mantel and wood beams in the living room, new farmhouse style windows with window boxes and board and batten shutters.”
