Lake Martin Vacation Home

Lake Martin, AL

Anchoring a prominent peninsula along the shores of Lake Martin, this house is a gracious getaway for an active, young Alabama family.  The home’s grand hall rises to 35 feet with rough-hewn timber beam framing floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the water.  The vigor of the natural materials and scale of the room called for furnishings of equal bearing.  Modern touches with their own sculptural quality, upholstered pieces in linen and cotton and galvanized accessories counter a few softly stated French antiques.  These pleasing contrasts create vitality and make the spaces come alive. A predominantly white color palette extends from room to room creating continuity.
