Get Inspired: A Renovated 100-Year-Old Lakeside Home

The sunny breakfast area features white floor-to-ceiling windows—the perfect way to start your mornings. The area features a cantilevered table by Marc Krusin that is surrounded by Naoto Fukasawa armchairs.

To make the kitchen more functional, Dorsey added a working area with more cabinetry by Christopher Peacock for additional storage.

Another room with large windows is this neutral living room. Dorsey’s clients wanted a warm and comfortable place to relax with the family that still complemented the other rooms of the home. The sofa is from B&B Italia, the coffee table by Liaigre, and finished with a chandelier by David Weeks.

I discovered the galley kitchen on Instagram and decided to do a deep dive into this home. This home is a great balance of modern and sensibility. I love how Dorsey focused on the kitchen and designed the rest of the home around it. It’s a beautiful lakeside home
