Glamorous country retreat with lake views

Texas Country House-01-1 Kindesign

Architect designed this Westlake, Texas traditional lake house retreat with the great twentieth-century British architect Edwin Lutyens, in mind. Lutyens was best known for his imaginative adaptations of traditional style, and both Lamb and interior design firm have followed suit here. This limestone residence is cozy in front, but opens to the lake with mullioned floor-to-ceiling windows. Oushak rugs, a subtle palette, and comfortable sofas aren’t so serious when paired with quirky occasional chairs. Glamour is serious, though, in the master suite where luxe is a pleasure to behold.

But it’s all been toned down and lightened up to look casual, appropriate, and modern enough for someone living in the 21st century. Nothing looks horribly gaudy or absurd, which it easily could, if not careful. This is a masterful translation of the traditional into the… Read more »
