Open to a breathtaking lake view, the expansive living room is the heart of Blog Cabin 2014, inviting all who enter to gather and relax.
This open and airy gathering space is furnished with the home's picturesque surroundings in mind. With the view of Lake Hamilton just outside the window, club chairs are positioned to accommodate conversation and keep the water in sight.
A round coffee table complements the functional floor plan, making it easy to reconfigure the furniture to accommodate family and friends. Clean lines and blue glass invite contemporary style into the space.
"Pieces of furniture that are louder than the wall colors prevent a room from becoming too blah," explains project manager Dylan Eastman. A stylish red console provides the perfect balance to energize the space.
The Blog Cabin team strategically designed a versatile sitting area with reconfigurable club chairs. "Whatever they may be used for, they work perfectly in a large space like this," says Dylan. "If you wanted to sit with your friends, talk and look at the water, you can arrange the chairs on one side or move them around to face each other and play card games."
It was fitting to incorporate a pair of yellow skis into the décor, since Polk County is recognized as a watersport paradise. These vintage accessories provide a pop of color and tell a story of the area.
Surrounded by oak trees and Lake Hamilton, it was important for Blog Cabin 2014 to blend seamlessly with the property. When reconfiguring the floor plan, attention was paid to opening rooms and improving the flow of natural light. Prairie-style windows and double doors make up the south wall to provide a scenic view from every angle.
