Lake House Dreaming


When it comes to summer vacations, it seems that most folks are either lake people or beach people.  I always thought of myself as the latter... until a relaxing weekend on the lake with a group of friends from college made me think otherwise.  Now I am dreaming of one day owning a lake house close enough to Atlanta to spend summer weekends relaxing and enjoying nature with family and friends.  Unfortunately, I tend to dream big, as in this gorgeous Bill Ingram designed home on Lake Martin in Alabama.  It is pure lake house perfection! 
What about you, are you a "lake person" or a "beach person"?

The home sits on a large lot with panoramic views of Lake Martin

Love the casual shingled exterior
Detached garage in a shade of dark green
that complements the trees and shrubbery
Welcome home! (I wish)
Varying shades of leafy green are used throughout
 the house, blending with the beautiful natural surroundings
A stone wall and ceiling beams are rustic, yet chic
The dining space is casual and inviting, with hints of drama 
A massive kitchen island perfect for entertaining 
The master bedroom has elements from nature - like the
fabric canopy with ferns in sepia tones
Lake house living is all about the outdoors -
even the master bath opens out to the yard!
