The upstairs at the lake is done in a very different style than the rest of the house- it is softer and restful, done in blues, tans, and white. It's easy to relax upstairs! Our room is the smallest of the three bedrooms, and was inspired by a large print I found at a garage sale- a hammock and quilt on a breezy beachside porch. I loved the feeling and wanted to hang out on that porch. We used white furniture- an antique dresser, wicker nightstand and mirror, and a reproduction Windsor chair- all second hand finds. I hung an 1800's Norwegian sailing print alongside a 50's paint-by-number, and added an old white shelf that I adorned with shells. The quilt and shams on the bed are done in soft Americana tones and were found at a thrift store for $15! The best decoration in the room is the view of the lake out the window! The bathroom on this level is done in soft gray/blue, tan, and white. It is done very simply and cleanly with sea bird prints, shells, and starfish hung over the simple white shade. It includes a dormer window which gives the room architectural character. The other two bedrooms are used by our oldest son and three grandchildren and have yet to be decorated- maybe we'll be inspired soon!
