House Tour: House Snooping at The Lily Pad Cottage



Wow, the weeks are really flying by!
I can’t believe that it’s my favorite day of the week already.
Oh – and I’m happy to report that Spring has finally made its way to 
North Carolina!
This week we’re snooping around Kelly’s home at
The Lilypad Cottage.

Wait til you see her back yard.  Swoon!

Hi! I’m Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage and I’m so excited to share our home with you! Thanks Suzy for having me over today. I’m a wife and stay at home mom to my 2 favorite kiddos and in my spare time I love to blog about all things creative.


We live on a small lake in Michigan and were blessed to be able to build our home here in 2010. I had so much fun designing every little detail (and driving my general contractor, architect and hubby nuts in the process!), and of course I’ve been switching it around and causing decorating chaos ever since we moved in. We hope this will be our forever house, so I have the next 40 years or so to play around and figure it all out. Come on in and see what it looks like this week…
  This is our sunny living room/dining area where the Mr. and I spend our evenings relaxing.






I love all my built in shelves, it’s so fun to display all my vintage finds and old books. I’m constantly changing them around.




My kitchen – where I love to experiment with all sort of fun recipes.






The Master Bedroom



Our view in the master bedroom (sigh…so ready for some sunshine again, spring is really taking it’s time this year!)


 My FAVORITE spot in the whole house, my tub, a place to restore my sanity at the end of the day!




The Playroom – which never, ever looks this clean, if you open those big toy closets you will be buried under an avalanche of barbies and matchbox cars…



The Mudroom – which is also normally complete chaos. 🙂



My daughter’s new big girl room, we had so much fun designing this bright and cheery room together.

 And finally the very best part of our home (except it looks nothing like this at the moment, can’t wait til the lake thaws!) our backyard.


Thanks again Suzy for letting me share today!

    Love all the paint colors and that “nest” pillow is adorable! What a beautiful home! I’m off to visit her blog now. 🙂

  6. What a great lake house! I love all of the references to the lake, especially the “Lake” sign with the arrow. I live on a small lake and would love to have one of those. Wonderful job of decorating a lovely home.

  7. Great cottage. I love Kelly’s style and color palette. Perfect for a lake house. Thanks for the peek!
