The Allure of a Home on the Water


The allure of water is universal. Water views seem to soothe away stress and encourage contemplation. A shoreline interior should begin by considering the setting.

The first step is to ensure that views are visually accessible, and that exterior doors can be accessed. The two rooms below, by architects on Houzz, each have two focal points–the water and a hearth.

Window treatments can soften a space and are often necessary to control light. But they should not take away from the view.

An outdoor conversation cluster is a gathering spot, a focal point, and a destination to move toward throughout the evening. This applies to traditional, transitional, and modern homes alike.
