Since homes can come in a remarkable range of styles, colors, materials, and a hundred other important and not so important factors, it should be obvious that not all homes are as well-suited to all purposes as the rest. Much as how you choose your clothing to suit the weather, your vacation will become that much pleasurable if you can spend it in a home that has been erected for that precise purpose out in the natural landscape.
Consider this vacation home high above the water. Surrounded by coniferous forest on three sides, its front provides a spectacular view of the beautiful waters of Puget Sound, separated by nothing more than rock cliffs that protrude into the Pacific Ocean. In short, it is the perfect example of a contemporary home created to fit into its surroundings with a barely a seam.
Proof can be seen in the natural building materials used to build the home, including but not limited to wood, stone, and metal. Coming in colors such as browns and oranges, it is no coincidence that the result is both warm and welcoming, well-suited for people in need of some rest and relaxation. Even the use of stainless steel appliances do more to enhance the effect through contrast than detract from it.
At the same time, the home takes full advantage of its closeness to nature by combining numerous windows with plentiful outdoor space. The windows provide their users with constant reminders of the beauties of nature, while the outdoor space lets them eat, drink, and have fun up close in the same.
