I’m really obsessed with this house and property after watching the Netflix series, Ozark. I’ve got a few pics I found on the internet and then I’m sharing what I would love to do to in this house, if I owned it.
First of all, this is a good, meaty series with some drama, some violence, some pretty people, and mostly, exquisitely beautiful scenery.
Although I understand most of the series was shot in Georgia due to the tax incentives they have in that state for film-making, I hope the views and aerials are somewhat accurate. That really is what drew me to the series. The views. The views from this house.
I love the A-frame and rather mid-century style. It's quirky but solid looking. There was obviously some thought and design that went into the structure. You can see a few more images at this link.
Even with all the windows and light, I think it seems dark and dingy inside. I know they are trying to show the house as an untouched property of an old man, so it does comes off that way. With a nice remodel and some appropriate furnishings though, I bet that house could really be a relaxing sanctuary by the water.
I am imagining the style or concept I would use would work with the existing structure and some of the materials. I love the idea of keeping the stone and then using walnut or a natural medium warm wood tone like that black maple I’m linking to below, to accentuate the mid-century mod vibe of this house.
I keep coming back to this project I saw in HB years ago as inspiration.
I probably would do some cooler tones however, in this house, like a neutral grayish white on the walls and then maybe some dark grays. I love the use of warm wood here though, and some of the more natural, textural finishes.
The rustic materials relate to the lakeside setting and I like using some touches of black and charcoal gray to give it a more up-to-date edginess. I would no doubt paint the wood on the exterior some kind of black or dark gray too, because I just LOVE black houses.
I'd do some slate floors on bottom floor and then use that same slate out on a patio. I'd incorporate warm wood cabinetry and doors for a solid look, maybe even some plank paneling in a few places, and then do some floating stairs in the same wood tone with steel cable railing.
I'd use a leather finish black granite countertop in the kitchen with some earthy tiles of some kind, preferring to keep the structure tied to the lake and natural environment and less so to the mid-century appeal.
Here are some of the furnishings I'd use.
