White ship lap walls, large grid windows, reclaimed wood accents...that's what we picture when dreaming of a lake house. It's not everyday you get the chance to design such a home here in the Salt Lake Valley. So, you can imagine our excitement when we received the opportunity to not only design a home along the beautiful shores of Oquirrh Lake in Daybreak, UT, but also a home that would be featured in this years 2015 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. A rare and exciting opportunity indeed! Just weeks away from its debut, Destination Homes is working hard to bring our designs to life! While you wait in anticipation, we want to share with you some of our inspiration and what you can expect to see and feel in the Lakeside Loft.
We want people to feel like they're in a space where they can relax and really take in the amazing lake views that this loft has to offer. When you walk through the front doors, you'll feel a peaceful energy in the home. We've designed the entrance to be light, bright, and airy. White ship laps walls will surround the entryway and move up the stairway into the loft's living space. Needless to say, it will be a staple in this lake house design.
We'll extend that light color palette throughout the home to help achieve that lake-side feel we're looking for. It's always a good idea to keep the bones of the home neutral. This allows for the rest of your furnishings and accessories to really pop and make your space your own. One design trick we'll be using in this home is to float the furniture away from the walls, giving the illusion that the loft is much larger than it actually is.
From the very beginning of the design process, we made sure to make the lake the focal point in the home. The lake is so beautiful and really gives that feeling of relaxation that those feelings should extend into the home as well. We've brought a lot of greenery into our design to achieve this. You'll seamlessly be able to flow from the outdoors to indoors. Are you getting excited yet?
Stay tuned for more updates and sneak peeks of the Lakeside Loft over the next few weeks! We can't wait to show you how our vision comes to life! You can also find out more about the Lakeside Loft here.
