This house is undoubtably a classic in style and colour palette and is sure to give you serious house envy. This home is awash with a beautiful soft palette of whites, taupes, greys greens and blue.  This colour scheme is a muted version of all the colours found outside the house in the sky, lake, trees and stones. Don’t call it Hamptons though because the location is lakeside in Altanta USA.

What makes this home special is the balance of natural materials such as wood and stone used throughout against the main player – white. I spied this beauty way back in 2012 and its still just as relevant for inspiration today.


Im sure that this kitchen is quiet large in size and what we cant see is the actual size of the room and the butlers pantry. I do love the extra table/counter space on castors in the kitchen area.  It’s unusual to have a split “island” bench so to speak, but I love that its flexible and a prep area also doubles as a casual dining table 

Open shelving gives the right balance on the back wall and I love that they used the small space next to the range hood for a pretty & practical space.  Its hard to spot but the lower cabinetry next to the oven is in black.  The butlers pantry has a library ladder to access the full height of the room and cabinetry that stores all the glassware & china.

When you have large open living areas the key to making a space work is to create zones.  Even though there is what could be considered a more formal dining area, I love the timber table that sits in front of the white lounge. This table is not necessarily for eating, but games, cards, coffee, or just conversation,

The zones are also structured by the use of the jute rugs. This whole room is based on texture, from the rugs to the reclaimed timbers and shiplap panelling.

The master bedroom is so simple and beautiful.  The white and taupe colours are perfect. and are carried through into the ensuite. Can you spy the glass pendant hanging over the mirror?  Its little details like this that make this home amazing.

The other rooms and spaces continue the classic palette of whites, neutrals and greys. Just the right amount of blue makes an appearance in one of the guest rooms.
