"We did not want the interiors to overpower the architecture or appear fussy," says Bill. A neutral palette and classic furniture that's upholstered in natural linens keep things seamless. Bill repeated exterior materials inside, including the stone in the entry, to ease the transition between indoors and out. Several seating and dining areas arranged in the large central living room feel intimate. "Bill really mastered the refined and relaxed mix in this lake house," says Homes Editor Jennifer Kopf. "Who wouldn't want to spend the weekend here?"
