Step inside a stunning, nautical retreat by designer Jessica Waks. See how she mixed classic chic Hamptons style with a country aesthetic to create a space that’s perfect for hosting family and friends.
Jessica used a palette of sand, indigo, cream and black throughout. The foyer hints at what’s to come with a breathtaking lake view and natural accents, including a sisal carpet and a round walnut pedestal table. Tall ceilings in the great room offer a grand feel, while a cozy sectional, slipcovered chairs and a settee with barley-twist arms maximize seating. The family loves to entertain, so a kitchen with a large island and a breakfast nook was essential. Paisley-print wallpaper warms up the dining room, where a long table provides ample seating. With a grand master bedroom, a global-inspired guest bedroom and a third-floor bedroom designed for sleepovers, this lake house is ideal for weekend guests.

this house doesn't look stunning to me compared to other videos by House&Home. I would not believe at all if someone told me the interior was done by a professional.. the house looks just so normal. anyone could do it like that.
No visual interest, not play of color and textures in an aesthetically appealing manner. Her ultimate design "vibe" (I swear she used that word way too often) ended up being: boring, lifeless, impractical (I.e.: white carpet in the entryway?!?, curtains to shield one bed yet nothing to keep the sun out of the guests eyes, etc.), dated color palette, poor use of a dated wallpaper motif, simple and "safe" choices ad nauseam.
I've seen some beautiful interior designs on this channel, but this was not one of them. Either this designer is new to the field, or is making poor choices in her design concept. The _only_ exception to that would be if the client insisted on these poor choices to the chagrin of the designer - then, and only then, it would excuse the home presented above. As an Interior Designer, I am trying to understand two things: how this design ended up featured on this channel, and what led to the lack of aesthetics and visual appeal in the featured residence.
Anyone else can agree or disagree with my pov, I don't mind. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. As I realize my pov may be deemed controversial, I expect it. The truth is, I think people need to understand that it's poor form to give a client dated interior design. Unless the home is of a specific period or architectural design, it's better to keep modern designing concepts in your arsenal. Otherwise, the client will pay several thousand dollars (or more) for a new design that was already 'old' by the time it was completed. smh.
