August 8. The beginning of the end. Of summer, that is. Before the summer comes to a close, we thought we’d take a little trip–to Jenni Kayne’s Lake Tahoe Home via Domino Magazine!


We love it when a house has a feel of continuity. 


And, from beginning to end, this home has that quintessential Lake Tahoe feel.


The wood adds that perfect rustic touch that simply screams “mountain.” It makes us want to pack our skis!


A gorgeous farmhouse sink is always welcome. The stunning white marble juxtaposes wonderfully with the raw wood.


Painted bricks and open shelving feel at once mountainous and refined. 


Various shades of wood combine to create a kitchen that is at once warm and open.


Simple accessories and furnishings are our favorite thing for a home that feels cozy and wonderfully uncluttered.


Comfortable, crafted linens…


And unique furnishings reminiscent of the landscape beyond the windows create bedrooms that are made for dreaming,


No matter what the age!


Every rustic space needs a little spot of luxury. A clawfoot tub serves that purpose well.


Well-placed towels can become wall art when used in the right way!


Even the mirror and sconces are in perfect keeping with the feel of this Lake Tahoe stunner. We know we’d love to be cooling off there right about now! What do you think? Would you rather spend your last days of the season at the beach or in the mountains?
