Waiting for the big idea to strike? There's plenty to inspire in this airy, bright workspace. Everything you need is here: comfortable seating, generous (yet subtle) storage ... and you can't beat the view from that office window.
One of the best things about this kitchen is its view of the Puget Sound. To maximize this feature, a wrap-around window bank was installed to enhance the family's enjoyment of the beautiful scenery. Not only do the windows give the family a great view of the ocean from their kitchen, they also let in tons of natural light, which gives the space the feeling of having the ocean right at its doorstep.
An ipe wood deck wraps around the modern home, providing plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. If the weather isn't cooperating, move the party indoors, where oversized windows offer uninterrupted views of the scenery.
Stone walls, sloping beamed ceilings and a mural that wraps the space turns this kids' room into a whimsical, child-like dreamland. Beds are built into niches around the room, allowing ample space for young guests. A wood balcony overlooks a window seat that filters in natural light.
A triptych of arched glass windows surround wrap-around window seating in a neutral transitional dining room. A hammered copper breakfast tabletop is an elegant touch while a mix of funky patterned pillows add a fun splash of color.
Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," went for rustic charm when designing the living room. The room seems as if it's perched over the water with its wraparound windows. She arranged the seating around the perimeter of the room so each seat has the perfect view of the water. The shades of blue in the upholstery represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a lighthearted look.
