Islands situated close to the mainland have long been popular places to live. On the one hand, closeness to the mainland means that island residents retain convenient access to all of the amenities that can be found in more populated locations. On the other hand, smaller populations means that island communities tend to be both more private and more peaceful. Not to mention the chance to live in an unspoiled landscape, which is something to be valued in the modern world.
To see an example of how good island living can be, there are few examples finer than Casa Del Sol, which is situated close to Seattle. It sits on a forested island standing out in the sea, providing its homeowner with spectacular surroundings that combine two contrasting environments. At the same time, masterful planning lets Casa Del Sol incorporate said surroundings into its premises, resulting in a harmonious whole.
For the most part, the interior of the home is both open and well-lit, since it has been built to maximize the usefulness of the spectacular view. No matter where the homeowner stands in Casa Del Sol, he or she can look out upon an unspoiled landscape that seems close enough to touch. In fact, considering that the home makes use of nanawalls that can be folded up, said surroundings are close enough to touch.
Complimenting the spectacular view are a well-appointed set of furniture and fixtures. The entire home boasts tile flooring, which pairs well with the wood and stone that sees so much use. Likewise, the simple but well-made furniture contributes to its simple luxuriousness.
