Thom Filicia: Architectural Digest

ad1This month’s Architectural Digest features a stunning lake house designed by Thom Filicia. Incorporating all kinds of wood and tree motifs throughout the home, Filicia toes the line between kitchsy and charming with aplomb. While a lake house like this might in someone else’s hands start to look a bit staged, Filicia knows just when to hold back and when to go full force ahead. Below, eclectic birch wrapped chandeliers bring a little rustic charm into this family kitchen. birch wood chandeliersIn the sunroom, a polished wood slab coffee table pairs beautifully with textured side tables.

    Thanks for showcasing this home. Somehow it slipped past us. And it is a real beauty. The lanterns that you showcased looks like someone needs to tackle them as a DIY project. The kitchen and daughter’s rooms are real works of art.
