Carlton Landing: paint is done, now on to floors



Nautical navymodern farm house at #carltonlanding

Apologies in advance for the overabundance of lake house posts, but it’s kind of a big deal over here in our lives right now! Plus I know I’ll look back someday on all of these photos and remember the process. So humor me. 🙂

Last weekend we made a super fast trip to Carlton Landing to have a design consult about our house. We stayed in the coolest little guest cottage  with the most unusual floorplan

– all the bedrooms were on the ground floor and the upstairs housed the kitchen and living room with a stellar balcony and fun little loft bedroom. A gigantic balcony looks over Firefly Park. And in the backyard resides a truly gorgeous pool with another little guest house. Fun, right?

I get asked often about how to rent a cottage at CL. The best way is to call Steve at 888.619.1889 and chitchat about when you’d like to go check it out.baker-house

Our house has made some progress since our last visit. All of the painting has been done, and it’s finally starting to look like a real house!

The biggest thing I’m working on right now are light fixture choices.  The only one I’m stumped on is in the stairwell. There’s room for two hanging lights of some kind.


There will also be two pendants over the kitchen island. And there’s room for either a pendant or a fan in the space surrounding the loft.

The banisters on the railing of the loft show what the wood floors are going to be stained like. I cannot even wait to see what they look like all finished!railing


Everything was so clean and bright with all that fresh white paint. The house gets a ridiculous amount of light all day long. SO SO HAPPY.white-living-room



Especially this eastern facing window in the upstairs bedroom. I love that we have a view of the lake (at least for now).


Progress is happening! Can’t wait to see all the tile and flooring go in next.

Got any lighting recommendations for me?
