The seascape steals the show in this indoor/outdoor space. When the transition is seamless, you can enjoy storm watching and stargazing from a box-seat perch.
• Skip the railing altogether (if building codes permit) so you can soak up maximum scenery.
• Consider white. Here, a pale palette makes the bright blue sea all the more brilliant.
• Install pocket doors to transform an interior room into an open-air retreat. First, though, check on site conditions such as wind direction, sea spray, and bugs.
