Designer Richard Tubb gives his Alabama lake house a glass-walled addition that blurs the boundaries between inside and out.

The addition, which includes a galley kitchen that opens onto a spacious living room, offers a bird's-eye, panoramic vista of the lake through windowed walls on three sides. Muntins painted a dark hue complement the pine walls coated in Richard's trademark neutral shade and help the elongated floor-to-ceiling windows draw all eyes outward to the serene scenery beyond. "This house captures you," says Richard. "When you are standing in this room, it feels like you're on a boat. Guests sit in here and say that they're going outside, but they never do!"
