Lake House Interior Colors

It’s been a few years since we’ve talked paint colors! I was looking back through my old posts and I realized my Lake House Paint Colors post was missing a lot of my new paint projects. I still love our original lake house interior colors, but you know I love to change things up. Not to mention I’ve added some new colors to the mix with the addition of the pool house and guest cottage.

So let’s start the paint tour! You can click on each bold word to see more of each space.

First up the color I get asked about the most – what white paint did we use? I wanted a really true white for our living room so that the lake view outside would be the star of the show. Extra White is my go to if you are looking for no undertones.

I used it all over in the pool house and bunk room as well. It just feels fresh and crisp.

If you are looking for a really great soothing gray/blue/green color for your bedroom Silverstrand is my go to. It’s such a beautiful color that looks different depending on the light.

I obviously love grays and blues, because they work so well for a lake home. Blustery Sky is another favorite color that we painted our primary bathroom vanity.

Our kitchen island used to be painted Blustery Sky as well, but I switched it up a few years ago when I was craving a bit more contrast. I chose Blue Note which is a really great deep navy color.

I loved it so much I carried the color over into the snack bar area in the pool house.

Boothbay Gray is another favorite of mine. This is such a versatile color and would work great on cabinets as well. I love the way it looks in our mudroom with our slate flooring.

One of the newer colors in our home is this gorgeous deep teal color we used in my daughter’s bedroom makeover. She wanted a darker ocean color and we chose a fun color blocking treatment with Azores.

Now that my kids are older the basement family room needed a bit of an update. We use this as a movie room/hang out spot, so I decided to go with a nice dark cozy color. Kendall Charcoal is a great warm deep gray.

Writing this post is making me realize how many new spaces I painted this last year! I decided I wanted a subtle contrast on our living room bookshelves. I used Agreeable Gray to warm them up a bit.

For my son’s bedroom we chose Functional Gray. This is also a nice warm gray, but not quite as deep as the Kendall Charcoal.

Over in his bathroom we went with a deep navy on the tongue and groove paneling. We chose Polo Blue and I love the contrast with the white trim. His cabinets are Light French Gray.

We also used Light French Gray on the cabinets in the laundry room as well.

Over in the guest cottage I chose to go with a little warmer white color. With the walnut colored wood floors I didn’t want the contrast to feel too stark. Simply White is my go to for a warmer white.

Since the cottage is so small (600 sq ft) I stuck to white walls throughout, but I wanted to add a little more interest with the trim color. I decided to try to match the new cabinet color. I had it color matched at my local paint store, but it was really close to Rockport Gray.

Lastly I receive a lot of questions about our exterior paint color. We actually have shake siding by Mastic and the color is Natural Slate. It’s one of those colors that looks blue in some light and charcoal in others.
