In researching island color applications, architect Thad Truett discovered that bright blue was traditionally used on porch
ceilings to chase away ghosts and insects.
When the doors are open in the great room, you find yourself sitting on the beach. To create what the architects call a "living porch concept," UV-filtering glass doors and windows wrap three walls of the soaring 25-foot space. Sliding doors open to covered porches and further blur the line between inside and out.
