Home of the Month: Lake House Reveal
Good morning y’all! I’ve been waiting for today for awhile and I’m so excited to share my parent’s lake house with you as the first installment of a new series: Home Of The Month. Each month I’ll be sharing a fabulous home tour from friends, family, fellow bloggers or designers.
I haven’t been very successful at keeping up with any of my own series so far but I think I can handle once a month and I’m trying to add more consistency to my posting schedule so it’s really a win win.
ALSO, I’m starting a hashtag #SShomeofthemonth on Instagram and if you are a designer, home blogger, or just have a really fab home tour with beautiful photos and would like to be one of our monthly features tag your best pic and I’ll be choosing some to share!
Beware, these posts will be photo heavy but I’m not complaining :)
My parents recently finished building their new home on Lake Norman and it is a stunner! They basically designed, built and decorated it all by themselves which makes it all the more impressive. So without further ado…
There are no houses on the other side of the street so they have a 360 degree water view!
I drool over this door every time I pull in the driveway.
Oh yeah, that’s me on the left :)
Open Living Area.
The entire back of the house is doors or windows so there is a ton of light coming in with gorgeous lake views.
Heading to the powder room.
I had to take advantage of this lovely distressed white mirror waiting to be hung.
This is one of my favorite corners in the house.
My favorite tile in a herringbone pattern…and my favorite boots.
Outdoor Living Area.
View from the back.
Isn’t she a beauty and aren’t my parents incredible designers?!?!
I’ll be writing a source post soon so if there’s anything you would like to know about leave a comment and I’ll make sure to include it.
**Remember if you have a home tour that you think would be a great feature make sure to tag #SShomeofthemonth on Instagram and I’ll be choosing some homes to feature!**
I can’t wait to see more beautiful homes each month!
Cheers, it’s almost Friday!
We are working on plans for our lake house remodel and love what you are showing. Is there a way you could show the floor plan? It would be very helpful since I have an issue with our kitchen relocation. Thanks so much.
Hi Johanna, thank you for reading! Unfortunately I do not have an the actual floor plan that I can send. Sorry about that!
Would you mind sharing the exterior paint color? We are building a very similar lake house now and love
this color !
Hi Cheri! I’m so glad you love it. The exterior walls are Sherwin Williams Intellectual Gray at 150%. The darker siding at the gables is Sherwin Willams Anonymous. Hope that helps and good luck!
I see you don’t monetize your website, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional bucks every month because you’ve got high quality content.

Can you tell me the mirror in the laundry room , advise where I can get this??
Hi Beth! Sorry for the delay! It is from HomeGoods so I don’t have an exact link :( Sorry about that!
Beautiful home! Your parents are very talented; you are too. I tried to read all about f the other comments o I wouldn’t waste your time for having to repeat but it didn’t see any info on this particular thing…where did the bed in the master bedroom come from?
Love this HOME! Can you please tell me what Brand + Style Kitchen Hood was purchased? We have been in an exhausting hunt for the perfect kitchen hood for our remodel.
Absolutely brilliant exterior. What brand and color of shingles are being using here?
This lake house home is beautiful! I would love to know the exterior paint brand/colors as well as the paint color in the master and third bedrooms. Very beautiful and peaceful Thank you!
Hi Kristi! Thanks so much for reading! Here is the post with the interior sources. https://simplestylings.com/home-of-the-month-lake-house-sources/

Do you happen to have the exterior paint and trim colors? Beautiful home
This is a beautiful home! We are starting the process of building a house. I have been looking for weeks. I finally ran across this pin! OMG!!!! This is exactly what i’m looking for! Thank you for sharing. Just Perfect!
You are welcome Lacey! I’m thrilled you like it! Good luck with your build!
HI — SO BEATIFUL! CAN YOU TELL ME THE COLOR ON THE CEILING IN BETWEEN THE WHITE BEAMS. IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL WITH THE SILVE STRAND WALLS. THANKS SO MUCH?
I would like to know the color of the ceiling and walls with the white beams in the living room. We will be ready to start painting in a couple weeks and this is perfect soft colors.
Hi Lisa! Thanks for reading! The wall color is Silver Strand and the trim paint is Extra White, both by Sherwin Williams! The other color we used in most of the bedrooms (and love!) that goes well with these is Sea Salt, also by Sherwin Williams. It’s a tad lighter than Silver Strand and not quite as saturated but a lovely blueish/green/gray neutral too! Hope that helps! Here is the link to the source post https://simplestylings.com/home-of-the-month-ocean-isle-beach-house-source-guide/
Hi Lisa! Oops, I gave your the wrong link. Here is the link to the lake house sources but the beach house colors are very similar :) https://simplestylings.com/home-of-the-month-lake-house-sources/
I love it! Would love to know what the granite is in the kitchen called?
Hi Leah!! It’s called Golden Fusion from A Cut Above in Mooresville, NC.
Hi Katie! SO sorry for the delay! It’s called Golden Fusion from A Cut Above in Mooresville, NC.
What is the wood flooring? Type and color please!!
Love it …. your parents did a good job.
But wait …. my style too. Thanks
What is the name of your kitchen countertops? Are they granite? Love them!!!!!
what is the name of the counter tops?? the tan backsplash???
What is the exterior stone called?
Question about the tv on stone fireplace. Did they have to drill thro the stone and run wires? Or was it already set up for that when built?
It’s all beautiful & I’d especially like to know all your paint colors & cabinet colors as well.
Is like to know too please!
This house is stunning! Can you please tell me what color the kitchen subway tile is, ceramic or glass, and where you purchased it? That’s exactly what I’ve been looking for! Thank you! ?
Hi Sharon, so sorry for the delay! It’s gray glass subway tile from Lowe’s! Standard 3″x6″ Hope that helps!
Thank you so much for your reply! I will definitely check that out!!!
Absolutely gorgeous, Summer! Your parents must love living there and I bet you love visiting!!
The home is beautiful. We are in process of pulling together plans of a lake house. Our lot it long and skinny and terraced. But this is definitely the look I am going after.
Question– where are her appliances. Can you do a display of closets or pantry at least.
This home is absolutely beautiful! I looked on the house designers website, there are so many craftsman’s plans to choose from, would your parents know the name or plan number that they went off of for their drawings. We are in the beginning stages of our planning and know we want an angled house like this and from the pictures it looks a lot like what we want. I would like to see the floor plan layout to get a visual of the inside. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Gina! They do have great plans! Unfortunately the link and/or name of the plan that we used has changed on the website. I haven’t been able to go look through all of them to see if I could still find it :( Sorry I know that’s not much help! They have since sold the house and files are in storage…
Your parents already sold the lake house they just built??
Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing! You helped give me ideas to update our house!
Your parents home is beautiful!! By any chance do you know what the name of the paint colour & brand they used in kitchen is called? I’ve been looking for that colour but it’s so hard to find its either too minty green or too baby blue. Thank you in advance.
Catherine from Ontario Canada
Hi Catherine! It’s Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams. Sea Salt also by SW is good one too! Hope that helps :)
Hi, Can you please tell me what the color of the powder room is. Thank you.
What brand is the vanity in the powder room
Your parents already sold the lake house they just built??
They sure did! They lived in it for almost a year then decided they wanted to downsize and build a house at the beach lol :)
Is this the same color as the wall behind the fireplace shelving?
What a gorgeous home! Could you let me know what tile is used in the laundry room (in the herringbone pattern) and the powder room?
Hi Tina! This is the link for the tile :) http://www.lowes.com/pd_486467-1813-1095731___?productId=50015950&pl=1&Ntt=leonia
Thanks so much! Is that the same tile used in the powder room (looks like a square tile)?
Hi Tina! No the tile in the guest bath is a square tile that actual was just a simple one from Lowe’s but I don’t have that info on hand :( I’ll see if I can get it and I’ll let you know.
What brand is the vanity in the powder room
What a beautiful home! What is the ceiling height on the first floor?
Hi Alissa! Sorry for the delay! They are 12′ ceilings :)
Where did you get that grey armless chair?
Hi Kim! It is from HomeGoods!
Such a beautiful home! Thank you for sharing it. Wondering what stone that is everywhere/fireplace. Thank you!
Hi Marie! Here is the stone info. Old Southern Stone did the stone work. http://www.oldsouthernstone.com/Home.html We can’t find the exact information but the salesman Curt will be able to tell you the color and blend of stone (sizes). Tell him it’s for the Hogan house on John Connor road :) Hope this helps and sorry it’s not more accurate.
Do you remember the floor stain or laminate color/type?
Beautiful home! We have the same paint colors on our home and are now deciding shingle color. Could you please tell me the color of the shingles on this home. Thank you so much!
Hi Julie, thanks for your comment! I was actually trying to dig up the info. My parents have since sold the house (boo!) and their files aren’t readily available but my dad is looking! Sorry, I never got a shingle question so it wasn’t answered in the blog post! Hopefully I’ll have that to you soon!
Really they did a great job. Thank you for taking the time to what seems like endless questions and am hoping you’ll answer one more. What type of material are the Kitchen countertops made and what is the color. Thank you.
Hi James! Sorry for the delay, we actually have sold the house since the post was written so it we don’t have all the info readily available :) The granite is called Fusion and it’s from A Cut Above Granite in Mooresville, NC. Have a great weekend!
I was wondering if we could find out the exterior paint color and what stone?? We are getting ready to replace siding and will paint and do vaneer!
The house is amazing and beautiful!!! Congratulations to your parents for a great job! My only negative is you are walking around their new home with your boots on. They should adopt a no shoes or boots policy to keep their new home clean?. Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks so much Diane! It is lovely :) And good call on the no shoes!
Hello, I love the house. We are looking to build a house soon. Where can I find this builder?
Hi David! Thanks so much! We actually found the house plans in www.thehousedesigners.com under the craftsman style plans.
David with Humphrey Construction in Dallas, NC, drew the plans based on what we found on this website. Humphrey Construction oversaw the construction but my dad subcontracted most of it out himself, so essentially we built it and picked all the selections. That’s probably not much help that is a great site for plans!
Gorgeous! Would you please tell me where the leather chair and couch was purchased? I am redoing our family room, and this is the color scheme I am going for.
Thanks so much!!!
Hi Karyn! Sorry for the delay! The sofa is from Dutchman’s! http://www.dutchmansdesigns.com/ Sorry I don’t have the direct link because they ordered it from the store. They bought the leather recliner from Haverty’s about 8 years ago. But they did just by a new one a Rug and Home that is similar, just a bit smaller! Sorry, hope that helps!
Is it the Cindy sofa…and what is the fabric…is it white or a beige linen…can’t really tell from picture! Thanks!
Hi Julie! I don’t see the exact sofa on there anymore. It looks more like the Nantucket because it’s skirted and it is light beige linen like fabric :) http://www.dutchmansdesigns.com/products/nantucket-3-seat-slipcovered-sofa.html
Hi! Where is the guest bathroom vanity from? It’s perfect! Thanks!

Hi Cindy! So sorry for the delay! The Paint color (island): 50% Attitude Gray by Sherwin Williams and the rest of the sources are here https://simplestylings.com/home-of-the-month-lake-house-sources/
LOVE the center island color. It does look a little more blue in the picture than on the website. What do you mean by 50%?! Thank you!
Thanks Alyse!! 50% means it’s half of the actual color. Basically it’s diluted. You can tell the paint store to mix a color at 50% and they should understand! Thanks for reading!

Beautiful home and great location! I love the colors, so serene and peaceful. We are painting our master bedroom/bath this spring. Your blog has inspired me to get started. Also, love the lamp and baskets in the entryway. Please share your sources soon!
Thanks so much Penny! I’m so happy to hear this as inspiring you guys is my #1 goal! You can find the lake house sources here. https://simplestylings.com/home-of-the-month-lake-house-sources/ If there is something you don’t see here feel free to shoot me an email at [email protected] Thanks!
I love the entry way…who makes the zebra rug??
Thanks so much Crystal! It’s from Rugs USA similar to this one http://www.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/rugs/rugs-usa-zebra-print/cream/200CFVL05A-2608.html
The home is beautiful! Can you tell me where they purchased the leather chair in the living room? We love it, and are about to be looking for one! Thanks!
Hi Jennifer! Unfortunately they bought the leather recliner from Haverty’s about 8 years ago. But they did just by a new one a Rug and Home that is similar, just a bit smaller!
Thank you for getting back with me.
Your parents home is just stunning!! Is the living room and front entryway really silver strand? It seems like a lighter blue than the green that silver strand seems to have. But the lightening can make a difference! I just wanted to double check with you because I love the color in those areas and would love to what color it is! We just moved to SC (outside of charlotte) and cousin your blog randomly! I recognized the name of the lake your parents live on! :)
Hi Kirsten! It is Silver Strand throughout the living areas. They do have a lot of light that comes in which helps but I find it’s still a pretty neutral blue/green/gray! They have Sea Salt in the master bedroom which is similar but has a bit more color but I feel like it is a slightly lighter. I love both of them :)
Lovely. Could you please tell me the brand and paint colors used on the interior. Thanks
Summer, I have seen a few of these photos but finally had the chance to take the whole tour, and oh my gosh – your parents’ new home is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I am dying over all the pretty details, the color palette, and all the finishes. It’s my dream home! Thank for for sharing it. Loved seeing all the spaces!
Aww, thanks so much Lisa! It really is a dream home. Don’t think that there isn’t always a plan B in the back of my mind, lol!
We may build in the Lake Wylie area of South Carolina. Can I have the name of the builder who built your parents’ house? It
s exactly what we are looking for.
Summer, I am late to the party, but wanted to take my time viewing this lake house! The wait was worth it because it is one amazing styled home! Kudos to your parents eye for design and to you for capturing it through your eye for design and photography! I can see where you got your love for costal home décor. The herringbone floors, sofas, and paint colors are definitely on my list of must know for sources. XOXO
Thanks Sarah! They are pretty amazing :)
What a stunning home! I can see where you get your eye for design!
Aww thanks Bethany! My parents are pretty talented :)

Thanks so much Alex! I love they front entrance too! So happy you liked the tour!
Where did they get the dining room chairs? Could you please share the light blue wall paint color?
Hi Pam! I think they got the chairs from a local store call Lee Lighting but I’m going to double check that. The paint color is Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams.
Tell your parents, the Rampeys are moving in. They won’t even notice us. Seriously, love the house…it whispers, peace. I also love the print about your mom. I want that for my awesome mom too.
I will definitely tell them Liz! We at least need a girls weekend! I got that print for mom for mother’s day and I’ll let you know where I got it!
Plans have changed. We are meeting at the lake house. :)
I’m amazed. It’s stunning. What a talent!
