Waterfront homes tend to have a design sensibility all of their own. There’s a reason why we describe some styles - both in overall structure and interior design - as being “coastal” or “beach house”.

There’s just a certain atmosphere that carries through to the buildings we inhabit on our vacation time near the water, whether it be a sunny beach or a quiet forested lake.
