I know its been awhile since I’ve done a post and as promised I will post more…more about what I’m working on…more about our travels…more about classes, more about everything and yes…the Lakehouse too!
So while I’m here in CA I’m thinking about the house, I lived there almost a week…we are 75% moved in after the home was shown on our local builders, Parade of Homes event… what I am thinking about is…. not wanting to remove the Lakeside Gatherings quilts off from the beds…so what can I do to make that real? Put the remaining kits we have for these quilts on sale while I show you the 3 bedrooms in the Lakehouse…business and fun at the same time…I will post again showing you more after we are 100% moved in…promise.
Here we go…the master bedroom in the house…has the a great boarded ceiling with the large reclaimed barn beams. The walls are 10 foot but then this room has the added vaulted ceiling, the white circles are speakers and lights. The curtains are light gold and cream with wide stripes, they really don’t cover the windows…they are just to soften all the hard edges of the room…
I have a great morning view of the lake…this pic is of the staged house before we actually moved in…so it is partially furnished….see the quilt hanger? Wonder what I will put there?
Here is one of the two guest rooms…its grey walls were the perfect spot for Ladies on the Lake to live…It is not a queen sized quilt but this bed is…so just roll down the sheet a little further to make up for the smaller quilt. Our bed and nightstands are from Uban Evolution...a made in America again store using reclaimed woods and materials to make cool stuff…Nick and I buy lots of our home furnishings from them…They are featured in catalogs like Sundance..but here in Appleton WI is there home/outlet where things are much more affordable. If you get a chance stop in there… say I sent you!!!
Ladies on the Lake info is HERE. It’s beautiful grey and yellows are so loved by everyone…doesn’t matter if you make it for a guy or gal…they will LOVE it!
Then last but not least…Anchor Point…which most of you are familiar with…and have read my posts about it…it has a predominant place in our home…You can have your own Anchor Point…it comes in 3 sizes…102″, 60″ and 24″square. Make it for your home, your sailor, your cottage/lakehouse or your fisherman in your life. It’s an easy but awesome quilt!!!
This is our stairs to the second level of our home…that is the 102″ quilt! Its so amazing here…like it was made for it…my builder even hung it for me…they wanted it there for the home show…The stairs are 3/4 carpeted with 1/4 black stained where the iron railings are connected…the newel posts and the hand rail are stained wood…..a another view from the upper level…how cool is our “chandelier”…nothing sparkly or shiny in my house…lol….love those Edison bulbs too!!! Here is a quilt made by my friend Randy, using this pattern, isn’t he clever!!! The star block is the mini size and he made 4 of them!!!
Almost forgot the last bedroom…there are only a pair of antique quilts on the beds here…but I know you will still love this room…I worked with Bellwether Interiors when building our house…I loved Leslie and Christa…they helped make sure things went smoothly and I didn’t make any foolish or out of date choices…it was amazing and our house we built is indescribable…when I came home from the cruise and seen it for the first time all done…I had to sit down…there were tears streaming down my face…I could not fathom that this was OUR home…even though I was there making all the final choices it just was overwhelming beautiful…I’m glad I got to come home and not see that week clean up and staging…even when they decided to use a different bed and they when to our Menasha home and disassembled that pencil post black bed…hmm it hadn’t been moved in many many years…so can you imagine? But oh well…Leslie wanted that bed instead of the other we had and she got it!!! One thing Leslie taught me about painting a room a dark color, this is navy…use a FLAT finish, not even satin…looks amazing!!! These beds we made from a looking at a Pinterest photo and were in the old lakehouse, they still look lovely here. I also love that the lights that we used on the beds are the same as the lights on the outside of the new house…easy to clean the bugs off when living at the lake.
Please help me get the kits for these sold…if you know someone who might be interested in one please let them know about it…They won’t go any cheaper..we will take the kits apart and cut into FQs or F8th’s or something…this fabric is getting hard to find. We have only a few Ladies on the Lake kits and more of the others…
Thanks for letting me show you the house pics!!! I have some great ideas coming up for you to use in your house too!…until next time…keep stitching!!
