Lakehouse in Maine

My clients purchased this lakefront home in the fall and enlisted RDI to redecorate the entire home from the previous owners’ very traditional style. The bones of the home were already impressive and we knew we had to enhance the amazing views of the lake that the property had.

They wanted a more sophisticated feel but also wanted to keep it somewhat casual. It needed to handle lots of gatherings and their three active teenagers as well as stand the test of time. We also needed to complement the amazing architecture. There was a request to add a home office for the couple to work from home on occasion and finish the lower level family room to include a pool table and builtin bar with a mandatory wine fridge and ice maker.

Since the clients lived in another state, much of the planning and decisions were done via email and digital ideaboards.. The clients were very generous in allowing us to take the reigns in the overall design and options chosen with only a few joint decisions. The final reveal was jaw dropping and a few tears of gratitude were shed. Truly a beautiful home for many generations to come.

Lakehouse in Maine

The master bedroom is soothing and stylish with the unexpectedly modern plaid drapery and crisp, white bedding. The lighter rustic wood tones continue in here as throughout the house and is found in the bed frame, nightstands and dresser. The metals create a nice contrast with the soft goods and the addition of the charcoal feature wall creates drama. Photography: Peter G. Morneau
