Design Inspiration: Earthy Lake Home Interiors

Neutral + Natural Interiors

made from the ingredients of the Earth

What is it that makes earthy materials feel trusted? Of all things you can build with, why do we gravitate towards wood, stone, and the like?

Maybe we have more faith in materials we found rather than created ourself. It’s these things that are the ingredients of the Earth itself. They are staples in both design and build.

Natural items are timeless themself. Both able to stand the test of time and able to be used in any place at any time.

Why do we love cozy cabins and lake homes? They are their own escapes. Wild and hidden. Secluded and humble.

Do you imagine a luxurious space? Full of nice things and high gloss finishes? Or do you prefer a quaint and modest cabin?

Beauty is subjective. Who is to say one is more desirable than the other. Our own preferences are much more complex and rooted in things we feel and find to be true. Our own idea of what’s best for a dwelling space varies from person to person.

You must figure out what your own Heaven on Earth looks like. It’s then translated through architectural elements. A landmark of your own – a physical representation of your heart’s desire.

Here’s a few design ideas for a earthy lake home in the woods.
