Our Lakeside Loft

June 11, 2021

Disclosure: Thank you to The Home Depot and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring today’s post. All items were selected, purchased, and loved by yours truly!

I’m sitting in this exact spot as I’m writing today’s post – I would have never guessed when we bought our lake house a year ago that this upstairs loft area would quickly become my afternoon work zone retreat, morning coffee drinking spot on the balcony, and the home of evening movie nights. I always knew this space had great potential, but it needed a vision. It is such a fun area of the home that overlooks the lake and has a great balcony attached, however, up until this point I didn’t know if and how we would utilize the area…until now.

Insert all of my finds from The Home Depot that really made this loft area complete. The Home Depot has an incredible amount of really great decor at prices and quality you will love. I was shocked just how much I found there when browsing online and continue to add to my cart every time I hop on their site. They offer fast shipping and have so many brands you know and trust along with their own exclusive brands [Home Decorators Collection being one of my favorites!] Whether you are redoing an entire room or just looking for a few extra pieces to make your space feel that much more special, you can find it all here!

Now to take a little look around the loft — we’ll start with the spot I’m hanging out in right now [and yes, you better believe my legs are propped up on this pouf as we speak]!

Bar Harbor 20 in. x 20 in. x 20 in. Blue and Ivory Pouf • Anji Mountain // 20 in. x 20 in. Fuzz Navy/Ivory Textured with Fringe Wool Standard Throw Pillow • LR Home // Chunky Knitted Throw // Light Brown Mango Wood Coffee Table in Round Shape / Other Tables

Amalia White Marble Top with Light Brown Solid Wood Accent Table / Other Tables // Marduk 25-1/2 in. Brass Table Lamp

Large Oblong Teak Wood Candle Holder with White Unscented Candles // Aluminum Gold Jacks Sculptures (Set of 2) / Similar 5 Inch Aluminum Jacks // Light Brown Mango Wood Coffee Table in Round Shape / Other Tables // Coffee table in brown // Similar Rug

We have had the above couch, but it was time to cozy it up with throws, pillows, and all the texture possible. I loved bringing in the soft knit throw and then grounding the room with something a little more substantial like this round wood coffee table [currently sold out, available in brown here!]

For the entertainment section, I bought this dresser [yes, I bought a dresser to use as an entertainment stand] and it works perfectly! I love the whitewash wood and all of the decorative detail on it. It has plenty of cabinets and drawers for movies, games, and of course – snacks 😉

Now all that’s left to do is finish up my coffee station and snack station and this loft will be complete! Be sure to check out The Home Depot for all your furniture and decor needs!
