Create This Look: White Low Country Coastal Lake Cottage

While I spend a few more days in the desert enjoying the rugged landscape and healing sunshine, you might expect me to blog about Mediterranean style stucco mountain homes or pueblo architecture. But I’m still more drawn to airy white lake houses and classic coastal designs. So let’s return our attention to a blog favorite. This White Low Country Coastal Lake Cottage by Lisa Furey will inspire with design ideas and resources for creating the look (with the exact paint colors, furniture, and decor).

When I discussed this inspiring Palmetto Bluffs coastal cottage project, Lisa Furey said the architecture was actually a result of seeing a photo of a property she saw online.

As far as I know, she never did find out the name of the architect responsible for the inspiration house she found.

Furey calls the property: “My own little slice of heaven on earth.” The goal was to create a low country coastal design which would not scream ‘beach house.’

The location? Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, SC.

This home is sited on a lake across from a nature preserve so the views to the outdoors were extremely important.

In less than 2,000 square feet, Furey designed it with both ‘open and airy’ in mind.

Inside, you’ll find: vaulted ceilings, expansive windows, glass doors and floating stairs.

As far as furnishings, the house is decorated with freshened traditional design, durable finishes and fabrics, space saving ideas, and the unexpected.

I’m sure you’ll agree the results are stunning, inspiring, and so perfect for modern coastal living in a relatively small space.

The board and batten exterior has so much character!

The entry has a simple, clean, unfussy, and minimal mood.

And who can have a lake house porch without a porch swing? (Notice the haint blue painted ceiling.)

This property is actually three structures: a main house, carriage house, and guest house. Wouldn’t it be dreamy to be able to design three separate little kitchen areas?
