Four Inspiring Styles for Your Lake House Getaway
Unwind with these welcoming retreats anchored in livable comfort.
The hottest month of the year has us dreaming of nostalgic weekend getaways near the quiet comforts of a lake house. Filled with memories of summer days spent by the lake and autumn weekends to see the rich fall foliage, a lake house is a great place to unwind, spend time with family, or entertaining friends. For us, the perfect lake house can be boldly modern, filled with cottage charm, have a touch of nautical, or lean on the rustic side. Whatever the style, lake house interiors have a sense of ease and warmth anchored by a feeling of livable comfort.
To help you pinpoint which design aesthetic fits your needs, we've gathered a few ideas for lake house decorating. Whether you want a fresh and sophisticated update, you need to brighten up old ceilings or create a refined yet rustic oasis. These beautiful lakeside homes featuring Visual Comfort lighting blend the beauty of nature all around while creating a welcoming retreat that allows you to relax and rejuvenate.
A modern lake house combines contemporary design with a sustainable style. This design aesthetic mixes big-city living with country cabin comforts. Elegant, tranquil, and cozy, the modern lakeside house is all about bringing together the best of both worlds.

A nautical theme is an excellent approach for any lake house. It's fun, unpretentious, and comfortable Summer Living at its best. Nautical style doesn't have to be filled with anchors or shipwrecked art all over the wall, but it can boast a fresh seaside-chic vibe while paying homage to maritime living.
