Water Colors: How to Get the Lake Look
Happy cottage vibe
Patti Mutch wanted the home to have a happy, young cottage vibe. Colorful nature-inspired accents and sky blue ceilings throughout give a sense of the outdoors continuing into the space.
"The exterior color is so happy, and it sets the tone for where we went with the palette inside," says interior designer Kathryn Chaplow, who filled the two-and-a-half-story, window-wrapped home with sky blue ceilings, leaf green dining room chairs, sand-color sofas and striped rugs that inspired the home's playful accent colors. "We didn't want to match the house to the lake, but we wanted to create a natural palette that fits the setting."
