From HomeDesignLover.com: "Who would not love to live in a place near the waters? Well, living near the ocean is indeed serene but a similar feeling can also be acquired when you have a house near the river. From the name itself, you will know that the house we will feature today is definitely near a river. The River House is located along the Columbia River in Washington. It is a weekend retreat home where the family can spend quality time together away from the noise of the city. From the home’s location, they can get a good view of the river which brings in tranquility to the home. The design of the house has a strong connection to its environment as it is surrounded by fresh greenery. The interior of the house also brought in the beauty of the environment. It uses warm earth colors giving the home a cozy feel. With its high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, the house felt a lot more spacious allowing them ease of access. Two different styles were combined in the interior, the rustic and the elegant style. Can you imagine their fusion? With nature around it, this home is indeed perfect for a family’s weekend retreat. We are sure they are all looking forward for the weekend because this place is such a paradise. It looks even more beautiful when fall comes and the surroundings seemingly changes it garments with lovely autumn colors all around! This modern home is designed by McClellan Architects who made sure that they could provide the needs of the family for the home as well as keeping in mind its aesthetics and function."
