About one year ago we received an inquiry about a new build in Shadow Lakes, Indio California. Shadow Lakes is a very private, very secluded development nestled around a beautiful man made lake surrounded by tranquil palm trees and breathtaking desert landscape.
I remember the initial drive to the house and my jaw dropped as we entered the community, it felt like a resort, a retreat for close family and friends to get away and spend quality time in luxury. That is the exact dream our clients had for their vacation home that they themselves coined the Lake House.
Here are some images from that very first visit.
The style of the home had been established as Tuscan but we wanted to give it a modern edge, a twist that we knew our clients, the Chapman's, would be onboard with as they themselves live on the cutting edge and while they have an appreciation for tradition and classic design they also wanted the house to reflect their sense of playful style.
We started with a clean and classic base to the house - selecting finishes that have movement to them but aren't overpowering.
The lighting in the house had to be a perfect mix of classic, modern and fun. The views in this house are both breathtaking from the interior and exterior so we wanted to make a statement either way. When enjoying a beautiful dinner with friends outside or relaxing on the lake the house is eye catching.
There is just so much to this house, so many pictures, so many great memories to share during the process of being involved in such a stunner.
I think my favorite aspect was working with such incredible clients and of course the builder, West Coast Builders, who I cannot say enough amazing things about. Their attention to detail is like no other I have had the pleasure of working with.
I also love how comfortable and fun the house feels when you walk in. It is no small feat to take on a 5k+ house and make it feel full and balanced. I think we nailed it and I am so proud of everyone involved.
Thanks for reading.
