Get the Look: Lake House

For a hot minute when we were house hunting last year I thought I might fancy an untouched 1960s ranch style home on a lake. My dream is to renovate a rancher and on a lake—even sweeter. Anyone would want their very own lake house after reading Thom Filicia’s book, American Beauty, right?
I fantasized about gutting the place and turning it in to my own slice of lake house heaven but then reality set back in and I quickly realized that lakefront property even though completely dated and lacking in charm, carried an unreasonable lakefront price tag and that possibility was eliminated.

As summer carries on and we retreat to the water whether it be a pool, lake or river, let’s indulge and decorate the lake house in our minds.
