Project: Modern Beauty: The Coves at Bird Island—a lake home for one lucky couple

Design area: Interior

ServicesDesign and remodeling, new art and decor, layout changes; new painting and trim, updated flooring, and all new furnishings
 ChallengeUpdating interiors to make this lake house a modern and elegant vacation get away.

It is always a privilege to help a couple or a family see their remodeling dreams come to life. In this case, we were asked if we could help bring some modernity to the space, without losing the comfort and coziness that everyone desires in a lake house. With these types of projects, our team brings their expertise to the table, with the desire of doing something beautiful. 


Plenty of seating for everyone!

Nuance updated the color palette, providing new paint and trim, updated lighting, and chose furnishings that really complemented the space. All the wooden floors were redone. The structure itself was magnificent, so we had an amazing canvas to work from, with the gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows. The Nuance team worked to elevate the space to even new heights. We’d also like to recognize the following people and their tremendous work:
    • Misty and Erik Lancaster for giving all the walls woodwork, cabinets, and lighting new paint and personality 
    • David Waters for finishing the wood floors and bringing them back to life
