Modern Lake House Photo Tour: The Bedroom Wing

Tour bedroom spaces, an office, and mudroom in our Modern Lakehouse!

We’re sharing more of our Modern Lake House. Before, we went through the main spaces — Entry & Dining, Living Room, and Kitchen. Now, we are doing the first wing of the house — the master suite, office, powder bath, guest suite, and mudroom. We can’t share all the sources, but trust us—we share and give as much as we can!

You can get caught up with the rest of the home by watching the first webisode, and touring the Living Room, Kitchen + Nook, and Entry + Dining Room.


Master Bedroom


Surrounded by tall trees, the home is designed with large windows to enjoy the view. With the black windows, we wanted to incorporate a tight color palette of black, white, and neutral that is softened with natural elements like wood, leather, and woven textures.


Typically, if we have the space to do a bench at the end of the bed, we will. But this room is large! Large enough to do a full on daybed at the end, which is perfect for relaxing in the space. The leather strap detail on the bolsters tie in with the beams, wood floors, and nightstands.


We were in love with the tonal color palette in the vintage rug we sourced for the space.


We love a good seating area in a space. It’s made complete with an antique lounger, side table and floor lamp. One of the most striking moments in the home is the full slab marble fire place. It’s mirrored in the bathroom behind the tub as well. A simple but beautiful side table with a touch of wood warms the space.


Master Bathroom

The full slab of marble is one of our favorite moments in the space. It’s replicated in the adjoining bedroom’s fireplace. We carried the black throughout the space with the pendant, sconces, and hardware on the cabinetry.


We needed a graceful but industrial pendant to hang over the tub. The Precision Pendant is simple, beautiful, and has a cool detail at the base of the light.


We’ve been waiting to use this marble mosaic for a long time! We knew this would be the perfect space for it.

There were a lot of cold elements in the space, so we knew we wanted natural wood cabinets to tie in the other natural wood throughout the home.



The office was the perfect space to go dark with shou sugi ban built-ins, an Apparatus light, and grid paneling.


We designed the open cabinets with a bit of a broken grid detail and a large void for artwork. We used a local and renowned artist, Holly Addi for an original piece for the space.

The room has an angle, which we used to place two pieces from Block Shop Textiles. We love their graphic pattern framed in a light natural wood to complement the structural wood desk.


Powder Bathroom

Instead of wall paneling, we went with a dark grasscloth to give the space texture and dimension. We designed a floating marble vanity and wall mounted sinks with a natural wood shelf to tie into the rest of the home.


Guest Suite

This might be one of our favorite bedrooms we’ve ever done. We fell in love with this couch and designed the room with it as the jumping off point.


The Newcomb Table Lamp in a stunning matte bronze brings out the deep, warm tones in the vintage rug and contrasts against the white paneling beautifully.


We did side tables instead of nightstands, because it is a guest bedroom, so you don’t need the extra storage. Instead of folding the throw across the bed, we tucked it under the fold of the duvet and laid it vertically.


Baskets are great for filling open space and providing any small amount of storage guests may need.


This area can serve as a place to sleep if there are a lot of guests, and creates another space for them to just relax and chill.


The sculptural build of the Mayotte Offset Floor Lamp is beautiful and unique, but it doesn’t stick out in an obnoxious way. The gold finish detail on the inside of the shade makes all the difference.

We carried both natural wood and black throughout the home, so we used both in the vanity. It’s enhanced by the chevron tile on the floor, and grid tile on the walls.


The tile choices were subtle, but we didn’t want anything to be competing with the patterns, so we designed the vanity to have minimal hardware.




The mudroom is just pretty. We built a beautiful unit that has plenty of storage space and the coolest wire fronts on the bottom drawers. The space is complete with a dog shower and subtle vertical paneling.

  1. Will you be sharing more details on where to purchase these pieces? I love the nightstands but didn’t see them on the Mcgee and Co website. Also, where is the artwork from, it’s beautiful! Thanks!

    1. I wish they would respond to these things but hardly ever. What’s the point of posting if you can’t respond to your readers?

      1. Hi Jamie, they actually do post sources. Find them on iliketoknowit app 🙂 You will get more details on sources.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! ???

    I would love to know the details on the roller blades in the bedroom. They work perfectly with the black windows.

    Thanks for continuing to inspire!

  3. Hey there! As always…such beautiful spaces and choices! I’m sure the clients are thrilled! I have looked thru the site, but I was wondering where you choose your wood flooring? It looks like a wide plank. Is it engineered? Real wood? Any information would be appreciated and thank you in advance!

  4. Every corner and detail in all of the rooms is breathtaking! Given the lovely nature outside, big windows are such a great idea because the first thing you see when you wake up is nature at its best. Love the coziness and vintage spark you brought to space with antique looking rugs that bring layers and textures in. Wooden floors and other details are gorgeous and add the earthy tones. Just wonderful!

  5. Can you share the tile brand and name in the powder bath? It’s so gorgeous, especially with the black grasscloth!

  6. Hi studio mcgee! the house is absolutely amazing,. Is it possible to give away the colour on the wall used in the office area? Works beautifully in a darker areas and this is what I am after but cannot find . It would be great to hear back from you.

  8. I’d love to know the source for the vertical white tile (behind mirrors and in shower) for the guest suite bathroom – please!
