There’s nothing quite like escaping the city during the dog days of summer, especially when you have a waterside destination entered into Google Maps. Of course, the thing about vacations is…they end. Eventually, you have to go back to regular life at home—or do you? We’ve channeled the iconic lakeside towns of upstate New York and rounded up seven home decor pieces that will bring the area’s modern farmhouse look to your everyday routine. Think: nautical textiles you can layer on top of your existing furniture, the perfect country table, and the quintessential Adirondack chair in a fresh colorway. Lake house–inspired living never looked so good—or cost so little. A total transformation will set you back just $500.

If you want to use your porch more this summer…

Can you think of a better spot to enjoy your morning coffee? Scenic views optional.

If your sofa is looking blah…

No lakehouse look is complete without some blue and white. These striped throw pillows hit the mark without being over-the-top nautical.

If your floors could use a fresh layer…

Similarly, pile this just-nautical-enough denim-blue wool rug on top of an existing jute carpet for an easy refresh

If you’re tired of your basic dinnerware…

Elevate your summer salad game with bold dishes that remind us of the steel-frame windows often found in modern farmhouses.

If your kitchen could be a little bit more lit…

Something as simple as swapping out a light fixture can transform your space. We recommend this industrial twist on a barnyard pendant.

If you’ve been having dinner at the coffee table…

This design, the perfect combination of rustic (the wood veneer) and modern (the mid-century silhouette), will inspire you to actually set the table.

If you’re lacking on the seating front…

Put these chairs, a classic Windsor style in a sleek black finish, around the above wood table and revel in the contemporary cabin vibes.
