Because an existing client was so taken by our ability to listen and capture their vision, they called us in to redo their second home — a retreat on Cedar Creek lake. However, this project came with a new challenge: Since it would be used primarily for entertaining, they wanted a design that would combine aesthetic charm with the type of low-maintenance, high quality furnishings and materials that were conducive to weekend getaways and family gatherings. We began by breathing fresh life into the home with new windows, a kitchen redo and updated bath. Then, we transformed the dark interiors by creating a bright and airy environment that showcased the incredible lake views, topping it off with furniture, accessories and accent pieces that defined the new space. The result: a second home that was every bit as comfortable, elegant and inviting as their primary residence.
