Connecticut Lake House

Connecticut Lake House

A mix of traditional, contemporary and ethnic objet d'arts makes this lake side retreat both welcoming, fresh and airy.

The search for a house centrally located to different parts of Connecticut was nearly exhausted when, at the last minute, the homeowner decided to expand the search to include Middlebury. There quite literally in the Middle of the state was a lakefront little gem that suited all of the must haves and bordered a quiet little lake across from a nature preserve to add to the bargain!

The lake frontage can be enjoyed from most of the rooms of the house. This makes a sort of living backdrop that the owner wanted to save as a focal point. The changing nature of the pond from day to day adds an element of living artwork. The decision to keep things clean and simple was made to allow little distraction form this tableau.

A mix of traditional, contemporary and ethnic objects makes this lakeside retreat both welcoming and fresh and airy. This art collector wanted to home to be stream lined to focus on the artwork and view and still have the feel of timeless elegance with antique family pieces. Contemporary art in this case mixes flawlessly with antiquity to create a very casual but elegant atmosphere. 

As future additions and improvements evolve for this lakeside retreat, careful consideration will be paid to keeping the cottage style simple and understated not to distract from the beauty of its surroundings.
