When it comes to decorating a lake house for the holidays, nature knows best! Lush greenery, fresh berries, and a stunning woodland-inspired tree create a wonderfully festive setting for wintertime family getaways.
When Betty and Sam Franklin purchased their beloved lake home in the 1990s, they embraced their forest setting and opted for a traditional mountain-house style. But after a time, they wanted a lighter and more airy escape with a neutral palette and natural textures. So four years ago, the Franklins began a full-scale remodel, resulting in a sophisticated rustic retreat that’s ideal for entertaining in every season—especially the holidays.
