Little House on the Lake

I've been thinking about lakes and lake houses for the past few months.
We are very close to getting one.

Should we paint it pink like this sweet little cottage?

My husband would say "uh, probably not!"
While I may not get to paint it my favorite color
I have been looking on Pinterest for
decorating ideas.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Just look at the homemade bunting...
the blue porch swing, pillows and the white wicker!

There is an attic bedroom perfect for the kids.
I am on the hunt for matching twin beds.
Everytime we find them on craigslist they're sold
before we can get them.
I'm sure a little patience will pay off.

OR maybe red?
Minus the gigantic fish.

This is also charming!
The vintage ribbons and trophies
 really give it a cottage feel.

Pretty soon I will do a post about the
lake house we've found.
I've been waiting to see
if it all goes through...

For now I am "pretend" decorating
and loving every minute of it!

Linking to a Patriotic Link Party here.

Linking to Pink Saturday.
Enjoy your weekend!

Such pretty rooms. I had the pink cottage on one of my Pinterest boards. I do miss being on Pinterest and keep thinking of going back!

I remember seeing that home on Pinterest. I think I saved it on my "pink" board. =0) I'm getting that creative urge too!
Happy Pink Saturday!

I am sure you will find what you like on the lake, but this is a darling one you shared. I like it even in pink.
