Bikini Point

 NY Based Designer, Meg Braff's lake house  has been fondly  dubbed "Bikini Point". It has been in the family for three generations. Southern Living Magazine recently shared these images of her  1960's Mississippi Lake house.  Comfortable and welcoming, with an understated chicness make this  a perfect lakehouse.

                                                           This sign is so darn cute.

This room is great! Open and airy and  original tile brick floor was brought back to life.

Meg painted the grass cloth wall covering Blue, to add more weight and texture to the room.

The bookcase and window casings  were also painted blue  to blend in and create a cohesive look.

A great blend of the traditional and transitional with an island feel.Great lanterns on the mantel.
I am not normally a fan of floral, but I love this room. It is so bright and cheery!
If you have your own" Bikini Point" I would love to see it!

Sadly, our little old cottage is nowhere near as charming as Bikini Point.

Love the grass cloth painted blue and the blue trim. The vaulted ceiling in the living room and the brick flooring are great. And of course, love the cute Bikini Point sign :-)
