Beautiful Lakeside Cottage Summer Home Tour 2022

Looking for ideas on how to decorate your cottage home for summer? Well, you’re in luck! Today, we’re giving you a sneak peak into our lovely lakeside cottage. From bright and airy spaces to cozy gathering spots, this home is sure to inspire. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the tour!

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I always enjoy our time together.

I’m so excited to share my lakeside cottage home tour with you today! This has been a dream of mine and my husband for years. We wanted a place on the lake that would bring our family together. This past year, we finally found “the one.” I can’t believe it’s finally a reality.

Everything about this place is perfect for our family, from the view of the lake to the cottage charm. I hope you enjoy taking a look around as much as I enjoyed decorating it.

I am joining the most wonderful group of talented Ladies for The Bloggers’ Best Summer Home Tours, hosted by Kelly from The Tattered Pew. You will get to see 30 amazing home tours over five days. You are in for a real treat. If you are coming over from the lovely Amy from Amy Sadler Designs, welcome. Isn’t her home amazing?

Today, I am sharing Lakeside Cottage Summer Home Tour 2022. Come on, I’ll show you.

How to Set A Beautiful Table for The Fourth of July

Take a tour of our charming lakeside cottage: Brightened up your home for summer. Isn’t the color of the front door so much fun? I absolutely love it. French Blue is my favorite color-it’s perfect for welcoming our family and friends to the lake. Our lake front cottage home is freshened up and ready for summer.

I have painted the walls a fresh white to add to the cottage charm. I have added flowers, natural decor items, and vintage items throughout to adorn the home in time for family get togethers or just to enjoy at home!

Who doesn’t love to spend the summer in a beautiful lakeside cottage? Dreaming of cooler temperatures by the water, and lazy days filled with family fun can make your soul smile.

I love this entryway. I added the French doors, vintage lighting and vintage bench. The best part is that you see the lake from the moment that you walk in the door.

The moment that I walked into this house and saw the range and range hood-I fell madly in love with this house. I knew that I wanted to spend many hours in this kitchen making meals for our family and friends.

I painted the island this lovely green. It adds so much character to the cottage kitchen.

Isn’t this the best place to wash dishes? There is a view from every room in the house. Our cottage is nestled among the trees on the banks of a serene lake, and we’re excited to show you around. T

he interior is decorated in a cozy, cottage style with lots of natural materials like wood and stone. Almost everything was purchased from and antique store, estate sale or Facebook marketplace.

Nothing is too precious-I wanted to create a home that was comfortable and lived in.

The dining room is one of my favorite rooms in the whole house. I love all of the windows. I added this vintage chandelier over a rustic style table. It’s the perfect place for sharing great food, fun conversations and playing lots of games.

One of my favorite things is to tie a boxwood wreath to my chairs and barstools with a beautiful ribbon. I have four barstools at the counter. I can’t wait to see the smiling faces of my fur grandbabies sitting at the bar. Oh what fun!

The living room is such a warm and cozy place to spend some time-and the view is amazing! My husband and I love to turn the chairs around and put our feet in the window sills and just watch the lake, especially if there is a storm brewing outside.

Isn’t this so much fun? It is my favorite wall in the whole house. It makes my heart smile.

The family room is another one of my spots in the house, it’s the perfect place to curl up on the sofa and take a nap. It is also the only room with a tv, it’s great for watching a movie together.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
