Welcome to Melaine’s lake house outside Seattle, Washington.
I’ve been a fan of her blog My Sweet Savannah for a long time and was excited when she offered to give you a tour of her beautiful home.
Come on in!
Melaine Thompson’s Lake House
Melaine is a self-taught decorator who started blogging as a way of showcasing her hand-painted furniture and signs.
She describes her style as “traditional with a cottage/vintage twist. I like mixing old and new.”
“Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of creating beautiful spaces. Even before I started grade school I was rearranging my bedroom on my own.”
“My mom would drag me around to garage sales and thrift stores,
and now I am doing the same with my kids.”
You can catch a glimpse of the lake outside the dining room windows:
Melaine says the family room is her favorite place in the house because it’s a comfy gathering spot for her family.
I think every lake house needs a stone fireplace…
Her Son’s Bedroom:
The Master Bedroom:
She loves dark gray and says the paint color Seal by Martha Stewart is a good one.
She also likes Ralph Lauren’s Oatmeal because “It’s a warm off-white, a good neutral.”
Barn doors in the bedroom:
A cozy nook in the hallway:

I love how warm and welcoming this kitchen looks.

Thanks to Melaine for sharing them with us.
