Project Highlight: Before and After for Lakeside Living

A beautiful couple in the Seabrook area contacted the MFI team requesting an update to their lakeside home. Our designers set out to create spaces filled with the peace and tranquility one might find in a spa.

The entire project consisted of a master suite and two guest suites. We featured the master suite in a previous blog for your reading pleasure: Waterside Master Bedroom.

We thought you may enjoy seeing a few before and after photos of the master bath adjoined to this updated room along with some photos of two guest suite transformations.

Soothing neutral tones set the tone and soft grey London shades frame the newly installed air tub.
Our designers created the impression of increased square footage by opening up the shower, lowering the bath tub, and modifying the vanity.

The vanity is transformed!

Who doesn't love a fresh and elegant closet?

This crisp look was achieved by enclosing the variety of storage solutions behind paneled antique mirrors and adding a pewter chandelier that fills the room with beauty and light. The addition of a tufted linen ottoman and an ultra-plush area rug complete the sophisticated closet space. 

Of course, if you’re going to live in luxury, you want your guests to be pampered as well. Our team designed two remarkable guest quarters for this home and we hope you love them as much as we do.

The view from this room served as natural inspiration for our team’s design. A neutral palette accented with crisp blue hues evokes the timeless and casual elegance one finds in the perfect vacation home.
Guests are welcome to get cozy with this striped pique cotton coverlet and coordinating custom drapery.

Antique weathered dresser adds unique charm and increased storage.
You can see the entrance to this space in the dresser photo above.
A large storage closet was converted into a large sitting area through the addition of a window and paneled walls. Comfortable window seating creates a relaxing space to enjoy the lakefront view 

We love how the graphic print accent pillows add a touch of bold to the otherwise neutral space.
Also note the fun use of mixed metals in this room - feel free to mix things up a bit in 2013. Not sure how? Contact us!

Following the master bedroom's lead, this clean, calming suite suggests to any guest that they are welcome to kick up their feet and unwind.

Organic bed linens and stylish lighting.

A great demonstration of how drapery can do a remarkable job of exhibiting a graphic pattern in a subtle and tasteful way.

Tri-colored limestone mosaic flooring and travertine countertops.
Check out that fab chandelier!

Statement making bronze sink with embossed botanical detail.
We are thrilled about the transformation that took place throughout this project! Our goal was to create an enchanting hideaway where our clients and their loved ones can comfortably live, relax, slumber, and entertain in grand luxury. Mission complete.


  1. Beautiful! The renovations on the bathroom are amazing. I wouldn't have even known it was the same home.

  2. Thank you! We are so glad you like it. Our team had a great time working on this.
