Naturals for Lakeside Decorating

As warmer temperatures arrive, family interests turn to summer time activities. For many people, a lake home is a second home . . a weekend or summer getaway. With trips to the lake already in the making, it's time to think about sprucing the place up. If your tired coastal look needs some updating think natural. An emphasis on natural elements in a colonial plantation decorating style may be just the updated look to inspire you . . .  How about West Indies style? 
West Indies style insures a unique look for today's modern lake home. With warm, friendly, inviting and relaxing in mind, natural fibers and textures meet the decorating challenge. Add tropical warmth and island romance to a lakeside decor with West Indies inspired furniture and accessories. West Indies decor appeals to the homeowner who favors a tropical look mixed with British or French colonial influences. Natural elements and organic materials reflect a casual West Indies decorating style. Dark wood furniture complimented by rattan, sisal and cotton creates a casual decor  reminiscent of exotic tropical resorts.
