Boho Beachy: A Scandinavian-Inspired Lake House at Carlton Landing


OOH I do love a good house tour, don’t you? And this one is near and dear to my heart here in Carlton Landing. Located on pretty and hidden Pistache Park, the Liberty floorplan is the perfect blend of Scandinavian style with modern unexpected touches. I’ve worked with the builder, Scissortail Homes, on other projects (they also did our master bedroom add-on a few years back) and they asked if I’d furnish the living spaces to help get this house sold. Bonus: the buyer can also have the option to purchase it furnished, totally turn key. As in, show up with your pajamas and toothbrush. Couldn’t ask for a better deal than that!


In this living room I wanted to keep everything bright and generally neutral with a pop of color in the rug. The sofas are covered in Inside Out Performance Fabric and are ready for all the mud, sweat, and tears that lake life can throw at it.


Upstairs in the landing between the two bedrooms, there was just enough room to create an additional lounge/hang out spot. With a wall-mounted TV on the opposite wall and a comfy deep sofa to relax on, it’s a great little getaway for the kids so the parents can take over the downstairs. I’ve said it over and over again, but I love designing for small spaces. Maybe it’s the problem solver in me, but I love figuring out a way to maximize the function of it. This little nook upstairs in #projectliberty almost seemed too small to function as another living space, but the right proportioned sofa (by @kimsalmela and covered in family-friendly @cryptonfabric) fit perfectly. Personality courtesy of some fun art, and an equally stylish wall sconce.

What’s up that spiral staircase, you ask? Why, only the most fun bunk room —


I wish I could take credit for these incredible feature walls but that’s all Scissortail. They’ve done a great job of integrating texture into their homes through feature wall focal points.
