Lakeside Loft Parade Home

White ship lap walls, large grid windows, reclaimed wood accents…that’s what we picture when dreaming of a lake house. It’s not everyday you get the chance to design such a home here in the Salt Lake Valley. So, you can imagine our excitement when we received the opportunity to not only design a home along the beautiful shores of Oquirrh Lake in Daybreak, UT, but also a home that would be featured in this years 2015 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. A rare and exciting opportunity indeed!

Just weeks away from its debut, Destination Homes is working hard to bring our designs to life! While you wait in anticipation, we want to share with you some of our inspiration and what you can expect to see and feel in the Lakeside Loft.


We want people to feel like they’re in a space where they can relax and really take in the amazing lake views that this loft has to offer. When you walk through the front doors, you’ll feel a peaceful energy in the home. We’ve designed the entrance to be light, bright, and airy. White ship laps walls will surround the entryway and move up the stairway into the loft’s living space. Needless to say, it will be a staple in this lake house design.


We’ll extend that light color palette throughout the home to help achieve that lake-side feel we’re looking for. It’s always a good idea to keep the bones of the home neutral. This allows for the rest of your furnishings and accessories to really pop and make your space your own. One design trick we’ll be using in this home is to float the furniture away from the walls, giving the illusion that the loft is much larger than it actually is.


From the very beginning of the design process, we made sure to make the lake the focal point in the home. The lake is so beautiful and really gives that feeling of relaxation that those feelings should extend into the home as well. We’ve brought a lot of greenery into our design to achieve this. You’ll seamlessly be able to flow from the outdoors to indoors. Are you getting excited yet?

Stay tuned for more updates and sneak peeks of the Lakeside Loft over the next few weeks! We can’t wait to show you how our vision comes to life! You can also find out more about the Lakeside Loft here.

Holly’s Pick – Wallace Sofa

If you are having a hard time deciding which of the amazing new sofas to get at Wonderland I highly recommend the Wallace sofa.

This sofa looks great in any space. I really love the tufted cushions, which adds striking detail to its square back. The sofa is not only beautiful, but comfortable as well. When paired with some great pillows, everyone will be asking about your new sofa!


You’d never guess it has a price tag as low as $1,430.00 either. So come check out the Wallace and all of our other new sofas here at Wonderland.

Show N’ Tell – Cottonwood Craftsman

We recently completed a beautiful home renovation for a client and after much anticipation we’re thrilled to finally show you the transformation! Looking at it now, it’s hard to believe that this home started out with dark interior walls, deep stained wood finishes, and heavy Victorian furnishings. The home is now bright and inviting, which is exactly what our client was looking for!

While there was quite a bit of demolition involved throughout the house, we were able to keep a lot of the home’s original mill work by simply giving it a face lift with a new coat of paint and adding new finishes. We hope you enjoy this before/after transformation of the Cottonwood Craftsman!

Rugs 101: Rug Design

Now that you’re up to speed on the different types of rugs and where to use them throughout your home (check out that post here if you missed it), let’s talk a little bit about rug design. If you have a room that’s ready for a redo this summer, consider starting “from the ground up!” You might be surprised to learn that rugs are often times the jumping off point for us. Just as we dress the walls with art to establish the personality of a room, rugs are a piece of art on the floor that can inspire a complete design. Here are a few things you should consider when selecting a rug design for your space:

Select a colored rug that speaks to you and repeats your favorite hues throughout the design, or choose a dramatic rug and let it be the colorful statement piece in a neutral room.

Colorful Rug

Your rug can dictate the mood of your space. For example, a traditional or structured print feels more formal,  a loose and abstract pattern will evoke a light and airy feeling, and a neutral rug with a relaxed stripe can create a more casual atmosphere.

Striped Rug
Maybe you’ve fallen in love with a gorgeous oriental rug or are inspired by beautiful geometric Navajo and Aztec prints. If that’s the case, go with it! Let your rug determine the design style in your room. For instance, with a Southwest rug, simply add some woven baskets and repeat geometric shapes throughout the space and you will have a cohesive design.

Navajo Rug
As we always say, your home should be your favorite place on earth! Keep that in mind when selecting your next rug and choose something that you will love now and for years to come! Because the best design is one you love.
