Inviting summer lake house in Minnesota offers dreamy waterfront views


Martha O’Hara Interiors in collaboration with builder JPC Custom Homes has designed this gorgeous summer lake house, located on Maple Lake, Minnesota. Dreamy panoramic lake views and a mostly neutral color palette complements the bold cabinets and rustic wood elements throughout, resulting in a space that is idyllic for weekend getaways with family and friends.

A bright and airy entry highlights exquisite architectural details, instantly making you feel welcome. With a neutral base, the designer mixed in bright colors and patterns. The bench seating and entry rug enhance this elegantly styled space. Continue below to see the rest of this stunning home…


The kitchen is covered in one of the designer’s favorite and most-requested blues, Farrow & Ball Hague Blue, paired with a beautiful custom stained white oak island.
