Get the look: Serene Chambray Lake House Living Room

Thanks to everyone for the kind words on my lake house living room reveal with the One Room Challenge. I wanted to go a little more in depth to give sources for everything and talk a little bit about why we chose certain things since it was such a fly by the seat of my pants week getting the reveal up.


I’m counting the days til summer break (one more week!) and then I plan on never leaving this chair. For three solid months. Just bring me a stack of books and a never-ending supply of iced tea (Haha #inmydreams).  The furniture from Huntington House is so beautifully made and the quality is exceptional.  I toured their showroom at High Point and it was one of the most comfortable lines of furniture that I saw the entire market.  The Soho swivel glider was Simon’s one request for the room – and it’s a good thing we have another one on the way because I’d have to fight him for this chair. We went with Crypton’s Heather fabric in the pale blue colorway (it also comes in the most delicious pale blush color too).  It’s a no-brainer to use Crypton, especially in high traffic zones like our lake house where it gets heavy use from not only us, but renters too. It’s soft, durable, and comes in a bajillion different colors and prints.

Tangent: The #1 most FAQ I get about Crypton is where to get it. It’s available both to the trade but also to regular ol’ consumers like you and me.  Companies like Joann Fabrics as well as CalicoCorners carry it by the yard;  you can check out the product locator to find it in your area.

The drapes were custom made for me in Crypton’s Cross Current pattern in snow colorway.  Tripod floor lamp by West Elm.  The rug is Annie Selke’s Bella in navy wool.

Bar cart by Fermob in Capucine colorway  via Annie Selke (also available in a slew of other colors). Handmade camp stool by me (see DIY here or purchase similar).  Striped boxes by Emily Ley. Riviera bin (what Harry the Fiddle Leaf is resting in) by Serena & Lily.

Obsessed with those lanterns by Smith & Hawken at Target. They come in 2 different sizes.  Again with the Riviera binsYellow pouf.

Reproduction Eames lounger (and it’s slowly losing its buttons – grrrr). Baby by me. Baby’s favorite blanket: Blue fleece Annie Selke throw blanket.

Play the Day Away art print c/o Minted.  Lanterns from Target (sold out; similar).

Boerum farm house table from West Elm (not available in this colorway anymore).  Safavieh indoor/outdoor french bistro chairs from Hayneedle (such great quality and the price point is so good). Un Deux Trois print by Rifle Paper Co.  Stonewashed linen coral throw blanket c/o Annie Selke. Ibiza coral stripe pillow c/o Annie Selke (on mega sale!).

Custom coffee table made for me in OKC. Bella navy wool rug c/o Annie Selke (10×14 size).

The scale of the sectional (Huntington House’s 7227 sectional) was super important for this room. The former sofa was too deep for the space, so finding a sectional to increase the seating but not overwhelm the room in depth was crucial.  The fabric is Crypton’s Silex in navy blue and it is oh so luscious. The sectional is a tight back design, so the throw pillows are great for adding a little extra plushness (not to mention the perfect napping headrest).

Custom Roman shade by Loom Decor in Sunbrella Lido stripe fabric. Typewriter framed print c/o Minted.  Navy vase by Lawrence McRae.

This photo made me laugh because not only is the back door open but so is the pantry door. I can STILL hear my mom in my head yelling “SHUT THE PANTRY DOOR!” when I was a kid.

Serena & Lily Nantucket handpainted pillow paired with their  Juniper pillow in blue.

I’m awaiting my roman shades from Loom Decor for the front 3 windows where the TV sits. I was late in getting my order in on those! I think it’s going to provide the perfect pop of texture and interest with all the white walls, drapes, etc. I mean, it’s a whooooole lotta white, right? Plus those articulating sconces are going to be absolutely delicious against the lido stripe fabric. The shades will be identical to the one at the back door.

Media storage: Ikea Kallax unit with custom midcentury legs via Etsy. Wood crates from Target.
