Available in the market for a waterfront trip house, designer Diane Hemmersbaugh and her husband found a 1974 cottage overlooking Mill Creek on Solomons Island. They bought the Maryland property and started an replace that might lean on that scenic waterfront view. An current coated deck on the rear acquired an overhaul that changed a handicap ramp with steps main immediately from the porch to the yard and dock past. The designer saved the wood decking and cable rails that didn’t impede the view, then painted the woodwork a recent white. A teak eating desk and metallic chairs present a casually elegant environment; cozy rattan chairs are enlivened by Sunbrella material.
“The coated patio is among the surprising joys of this house,” says Hemmersbaugh. “We actually spend many of the day there, beginning with espresso and together with glad hour and dinner. It’s fantastic to see the altering mild on the water through the day and into the night.”
