Beach Street Project Reveal

If you’re from Minnesota you know how beautiful of a fall we’ve had. Warmer temperatures, sunny skies – some days it felt as if Summer was going to stay forever.

But a few weeks ago, we got the first glimpses of autumn. The leaves began to fall, there was a crisp in the morning air, and we were off to photograph our Beach Street project!

We couldn’t have asked for a more picture-perfect (no pun intended) day to capture this home. Located on one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes, this house has it all. Views, comfortability, and a level of attention to detail we aspire to achieve in every project we have. It’s a beautiful balance of modern and traditional, and we have a feeling you all are going to love it just as much as we do.


Right as you enter the front door, you are greeted with the best view in the entire home. Sweeping views of the lake, arched beams, and our client’s grand piano that has been in their family for years. We drew a lot of our inspiration in this home from the great outdoors, so we wanted to include as many organic materials in the spaces as possible. From the stone fireplace, large wood beams, and natural fibers in their furnishings – this space became not only a thing of beauty, but practical and comfortable for our clients and their family/friends.


Next up, the kitchen. This home has a large, open floor plan which is great for our clients and their love of entertaining. We knew we wanted to keep the color palette neutral in this space but details like the white oak ceiling and range hood brought a level of warmth that makes this room so special. In addition, we opted for bronze cabinet hardware and light fixtures to add a pop of contrasted.


This is where we had a bit of fun! From the soft blue paint color to the patterned backsplash tile, pantries are a great opportunity to be a bit more playful. Aside from food storage, we also used this space to house a few more appliances such as our client’s speed oven and beverage fridge. This allowed the kitchen to only feature the staple items and created a separate space for them so that the kitchen could remain clean and not overly cluttered with appliances.


The mudroom features natural wood tones as previously seen in the kitchen to create cubbies and drawers for our clients belongings. Being a mudroom, our focus when it came to the design was to put together a space that was both functional and inviting. They wanted a place where they could store their coats, shoes and bags before entering into the main living space. And we opted for selections (like the dark, slate tile floor) that would hide the inevitable dirt and debris that gets trekked in from the outside.


Because there is no television in the great room, the family room is the designated spot where our clients can gather to watch a movie and unwind. It’s located the lower level, but there is an abundance of windows which makes it just as bright and airy as the main level. To maximize the cozy factor, we opted for a large leather sectional and an upholstered ottoman as the main furnishings. A sleek, modern fireplace rests under the mantle and we couldn’t think of a better place to be come winter time.

Off of the family room is a smaller, powder bathroom featuring a graphic, contemporary wallpaper that is just as beautiful and playful as the black sink mounted on the wall.
