I'm Dreaming of a White May Day

Nope.  Pretty sure Bing Crosby did not sing those words.  So rather than acknowledge the big S-word that is coming our way weather-wise, I'm going to dream about my lake house (Kip just rolled his eyes, I can feel it). But I would love to have a little lake house someday.  We don't have a beach near us, but we do have the most gorgeous lake, Tablerock Lake, a couple of hours away.  If I'm going to have a second home, I want it to be a place we could go to often.  This won't happen anytime soon, but it's fun to pretend. 

This Lake Martin, AL retreat from Tracery Interiors captures the freshness of what I would want to do in my lake house.  They used one of their favorite whites, Benjamin Moore China White, through out the house, and I love the look.  See here for some of their favorite whites - they do it so well.  I'm sure some of y'all have seen this before, but I love it so much.  This would be a perfect retreat for me (although I'd add in some more blue and white:) )

Have a lovely day! 


  1. Oh I love this home. The metal chairs with the kitchen table is great. I also like the guest room with the two canopy beds!

  2. Beautiful example of a stunning lake home! This lake is just 1 1/2 hours away from us and is also right on the way to Auburn where my youngest is in college. I often wonder if we should give up our beach house and build a lake home? But then, the beach always wins out…it isn't but 4 1/2 hours away so that's not too bad! I sure hope you aren't really still getting snow? I can't imagine! Thanks for sharing this! Hope you are doing well!

  3. I would LOVE to have a lake home so I could have a pontoon boat to cruise around in! Beautiful home.

  4. Love their work and how funny used a few rooms for my virtual beach house post tomorrow over at Chic Coastal Living..guess great minds think alike!

  5. Ahhhhh, so lovely! And you must come visit me in my imaginary beach house in Boca Grande, Florida! :)

  7. One of my favorite homes....love the white fabrics mixed with the rustic beams!
