Multiple rooms and levels can be daunting to design as one project. For this reason, a recent client turned to Decorilla instead. She needed a full-scale modern rustic interior design for her new build at the edge of Lake Winnipesaukee. And what she got is a layered homey masterpiece – see the results below!

The Challenge: Modern Rustic Lake House 

From the pantry to the patio, every inch of the lake house needed a coordinated interior design. Although nearly finished, some aspects also needed finalization. The doors, staircase, and deck are among the most pressing. Fortunately, it was all doable. But first, the interior designer had to: 

  • Expand the deck on the second floor
  • Update doors and windows to feel lighter
  • Ensure laundry and mudroom has high countertops and benches to allow for easy use and storage of tall boots
  • Use a cohesive color scheme for the entire lake house interior design
  • Include the same tile and wood accents in the powder room and bathroom design

The client was thorough in ensuring the designers knew what they wanted for their modern rustic lake house. In fact, they put together a presentation indicating their likes, needs, and room challenges. It was clear the client wanted a modern rustic interior with a touch of contemporary farmhouse design. 

They loved shiplap walls, loads of wood features, and a slight industrial element in accents. Additionally, blue tiles also feature throughout – especially for bathrooms. But the most crucial factor was the modern rustic interiors needed to be cohesive – from the kids’ room interior design to the patio.

Lake House Master Bedroom Interior

The master suite is a pillar of rustic, cozy minimalism. Modern rustic home décor is minimal here, but the room still has a comfy and embracing air. Natural materials, in wood furniture and the wool rug, give a tactile feel, while crisp white linen and a sleek sofa add refinement.

A neutral color scheme decorates the room, with one exception. A bold lumbar pillow. Its colorful design is a bright and welcoming touch. Opposite the king-sized bed and nightstands are window walls and an intimate patio. It is the perfect segue from the natural-feeling interior to the outdoors. 

Contemporary Rustic Bunk Room

The kids’ bunk room is certainly a fun place for a sleepover. Eight bunk beds flank a durable gray rug at the center of the room. In addition, two built-in benches give children ample space to play, socialize, and relax.

The blue-gray hue of the furniture continues throughout the house. Here, it’s paired with a lively, bold red for a bright and youthful look. Each bed has a set of curtains for privacy as well as scatter pillows to make it extra cozy. 

Modern Rustic Bathroom Interior Design

Each bathroom has a similar base: light, golden wood, white countertops, modern sconces, and blue feature tiles. As a result, the interior tells a complete story. It’s a nature-lover’s paradise with soft and calming hues and huge windows showing off the views.

The lake house bathroom interiors are very similar, yet each is individual and aesthetically pleasing. The contrast of wood, blue and black against white subway tile and walls make visually striking spaces.

Finally, the kids’ bathroom matches the bunk room scheme. Red accents a neutral color scheme and black and white feature floor. Here twin showers and toilets save space as well as bring practicality for big family get-togethers. 

Spacious Mudroom

For such a spacious house, the mudroom needs to be equally roomy. And this one ticks all boxes. It comes with high benches to allow tall boot storage. Furthermore, there are plenty of coat racks, shelving, and cabinets, in addition to the perfect station for washing, folding, and drying laundry. As a result, the lake house interior can be neat any time of the year. 

Light Laundry Room

Last but not least, the laundry room rounds off the modern rustic lake house design. Duck-egg blue cupboards line the white walls, while a light grey starburst tile adorns the floor. The lightened color scheme is practical in a room with no windows, as laundry rooms often are. That said, the space is just as uplifting as the rest of the interior.
