Lake Burton Home by Pritchett + Dixon

Following up my recent post about boat houses, is a featured house that one of the boat houses belonged too. So with every beautiful boathouse, most likely comes an equally impressive lake house. Famed Atlanta architect team of Todd Pritchett and Craig Dixon from Pritchett + Dixon Architects are staples in Atlanta Homes mag and have designed numerous lake properties in the area. Atlanta is around 5 hours to the closest beach, so some people opt for lake houses instead since they are closer and there are an abundance of lakes within a 2 hour drive or less.

Relaxed Casey Key Florida Home

Coastal Living featured this beach house in Casey Key Florida that was designed for a carefree and relaxed environment for family and friends. With four children and 3 dogs under one roof, this home was designed to withstand abuses that come with lots of energy. Lots of white is throughout the house with pops of blue help keep this house looking clean and orderly.

Vintage furniture with chipped pieces and allowing her children to ride their skateboards on the new hardwoods help keep this house low maintenance with a "put up your feet" kind of feel. 

White denim slipcovers on the sofa make it easy and carefree where they can be washed in a little bleach every 3 weeks. Sofa from Posh on Palm and slipcovers by Rachel Ashwell

The cabinet's blue paint matches Benjamin Moore's Blue Allure allows the white dishes to pop.

The kitchen was gutted with colors to match the rest of the house with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances as well as the touch of blue.

Custom made benches for the Restoration Hardware teak table make it easier for more people to sit and gather at the table.

The owner's love of antiques continued throughout in the master bedroom. 

An outdoor face lift of sage green was given to the previous gray cedar siding giving the home a Key West feel. 

The previous bath was tiny, so during the renovation they used space from the screened in porch to extend the bath to allow room for free standing tub.
