There used to be a saying about the design of yachts: “at the end of the day, its you who have to row ashore”.
For those purist sailers who did row rather than use the outboard, rowing was sitting with one’s back to where you wanted to go which forced you to look at her, your boat. For this to be a pleasurable experience, she had to look beautiful, creating the perfect end of a pleasuable day sailing.
The curve of her sheerline, the rake of her counter, the stem kissing the water, when these were right, she remained in memory, beckoning for the next opportunity to let her free in the sea.
Why should a home be any different? When a building is to be a place in which we live, where we plan to spend much of our life, why not invest in beauty as well as convenience?
Convenience makes a home easier to live in, but beauty alone makes our home a place we want to be.
Driving back home, turning into the driveway, your home, a place of warmth and beauty, welcoming you home is priceless.
