Wednesday was another day filled with scouting shots for magazines, with more to come this afternoon. I love taking scouting shots, seeing beautiful homes is a definite perk of my job, but not being able to show you all those gorgeous homes until after they get picked up by someone and published is a complete bummer!!!
It's all I can do not to show you these homes that make me giddy when I walk around them! Both of today's homes were breathtaking, one I had visited before, the other was brand new to me and was as delightful as my friend Susan had described it!
They are both in such amazing settings, right along the water, with views to die for. And as I snapped away at both the interiors and exteriors of these two homes I had to wonder to myself...if you live in such a beautiful home with heavenly views...do you ever really feel the need to go on vacation?! Isn't just waking up to those views like being on vacation every day of the year?!
I know that when you live in homes like the ones I photographed today that there are plenty of places besides the beach where you can vacation, but I'll let you judge for yourselves!
What if your home was a charming, rambling cottage nestled in the woods with a beautiful patio and outdoor shower?
And you could sit on your patio and take in that view? Or gaze upon the water while taking a bubble bath, or from any room in the house for that matter?
And when you tired of that view you could meander to your front yard and sit on this bench and watch the birds and the deer?
What if you lived in a 4 story house, nearly surrounded by water, and when you woke up each morning you were able to look out at this?
And you could come out here in your PJs and drink a cup of coffee or tea?
Or when you went up to your cupola you were able to stare out at this lovely view?
And when you wanted a change of scenery, you could go to yet another deck and look at this view?
As the sun was setting, maybe you would come out here and sit with a glass of wine and a good book or the latest issue of your favorite magazine?
And then end your day here, with a meal overlooking the water?
So, if those were your views each and every day of the year...would you ever go on vacation?! I'm not sure I would!!!
