Lake House Bedding

We’ve been so pleasantly surprised by how much we’ve used the lake place during the fall and winter. Maybe it’s just the pandemic, but the change of scenery has been nice, even when the weather is cold.

We spent last weekend there and I pulled together some things in our bedroom and I thought you might like to see.

The master bedroom was the only room that didn’t come furnished when we bought the condo so I bought a bed and these nightstands right away so we’d have furniture, and I brought down some mercury glass lamps really similar to these that I had at home.

I wasn’t sure what to do about bedding though until I bought a pair of red and blue pillows at a recent estate sale and decided to use them as the starting point for everything else. This was the vision board I created for the room to see how everything would work together.

Here’s how it’s coming so far.

The bedding all came from Amazon, including these paisley sheets, a striped navy duvet cover, and an Eddie Bauer buffalo check duvet cover that I’m using without an insert so it’s more like a blanket.

Underneath the bed, I layered this jute rug. (I’ve become a big fan of jute rugs because they give me the natural look I love but are fairly comfortable underfoot.)

In the corner I put a wicker chair that we picked up at a resale shop near the condo. It came with a red and white cushion that now seems meant to be.

My other plans for this room include new paint; the room is currently painted a very pale yellow with the exception of the accent wall behind the bed. I want to paint the whole room in a light neutral.

I plan to add a second insert to the striped duvet cover to make the bedding extra full.

Finally, I’m keeping my eye out for a dresser to go on the wall opposite the bed, a mirror to go on the wall opposite the sliding glass doors to reflect the lake, and some fun artwork.

Thanks for following along on this little lake house journey. It’s been a really fun project to work on.

P.S. So we bought a lake place and mix and match bedding.

  1. Love this, Julie, and everything you’ve chosen! I use a duvet cover without insert on our bed. We use a dual-control, electric blanket beneath it, and it keeps us nice and cozy in winter.

    1. Thanks, Katie. Good luck with the house hunt. Can’t wait to see what you choose.
