Lake House IKEA Run + Move In

Lake House IKEA Run + Move In

This is a little bit of a past project post, but I realized that I hadn’t posted much about the interior of the lake house. Since the house has a midcentury modern style, we went with a lot of midcentury modern style furniture (much of which was from IKEA, although some was from higher end brands), complemented by more “lake house style” decorations. This involved a run to IKEA that filled an entire trailer, plus the back of the F250, with furniture:


The upstairs has several sectional couches connected together that are pointed outside, allowing everyone to have a nice view of the woods and the water. There is also a TV area (even though we keep TV to a minimum at the lake house, Game of Thrones still calls occasionally). The master bedroom has the bedroom set that used to be in the master bedroom of our main house in Verona, which fits the space and style well.

Downstairs, there is a sleeper sofa and some other seating around a large TV mounted on the wall, which will create a great space for watching Badger away games in the fall. We go to every Badger home game, but for Saturdays when the Badgers are away from Camp Randall, it will be nice to come up to the lake house with friends and watch the game on Saturday morning and then hang out on the lake afterwards.

Finally, we have a full bar setup upstairs, which again fits the style of the house well and fits a lot of nice glassware and bottles.
