In a transitional take on floor-to-ceiling windows, the family room
features cottage-style double-hung windows with sills that sit on the baseboards. “The main seating group faces the television and fireplace, but because the room is all glass, no matter where you look, you still see water,” says Banks. Even the lamps flanking the sofa are clear glass so you can see through them. The canvaslike
indoor/outdoor fabric on the extra-long sofa and matching chairs is made to withstand fading, spills, and small children.
