Adirondack Style

We recently took a trip to Lake George, NY for a short family vacation. In between the wave running, the tour of Fort William-Henry, the miniature golf and swimming in the lake, I got to do one of my favorite activities, WINDOW SHOP! I love seeing home décor items that uniquely express a particular place. There was definitely alot to see in Lake George!

I love this rectangular lamp (above) that has various sizes of branches surrounding the base. I found it at the Indian Tepee Gift Shop in Bolton Landing, a little town just north of Lake George Village. It has all kinds of rustic goodies, like the items below that really accentuate the Adirondack style.

Another wonderful gift shop is the Trees Adirondack Gifts and Books. It is also in Bolton Landing. It features a wonderful array of home décor items, art by local artists, books and jewelry. I spotted this wonderful antler chandelier (above).

A unique and rustic decorating idea that I spotted at Trees Gift Shop was this branch hanging from the ceiling. It was lined with miniature white lights. What a wonderful yet simple way to add a natural-looking sparkle to a room. Great addition to a country-themed Christmas décor.

Here’s another unique floor lamp that incorporates the antler design. This would be a wonderful conversation piece with a rustic flair!

There was yet another great Home Decorating store that I ran into while visiting the town of Bolton Landing. It was called Next Summer. It features supplies for the lake house. I just adored it’s modern edge to a traditional concept.

The beautiful Lake George area had a bounty of indigenous decorating items for the home, lake house or your pinterest board. I adored window shopping and drinking in the natural and rustic perspective of wonderful little home decorating stores that exquisitely feature the Adirondack style. I encourage you to visit this picturesque and creative area yourself!
