Two walls of windows, through which the view starts with a country road. Across the road is small lake lined with cottages on the far end.
Today, the vision projected is a winter scene, a blanket of white. Evergreen, pine and spruce trees with bending branches that strain under the weight of wet heavy snow. Beyond them is the frozen lake. A snowmobile circles as ice skaters glide with long strides. An ice fishing hut is at the center to complete the tableau.
Not soon enough, the promise of spring will transform the windows setting, as buds freckle naked branches, the lake will try to thaw, and mud will peek through the patches of melted snow, where grass will eventually reemerge.
Then summers lush green leaves will top several mighty oak trees, and partially obscure the view of the lake. Beyond the oak trees, the blue lake hosts a smattering of kayaks and fishing boats as they peacefully sway with the gentle waves.
Falls picture is vibrant with bursts of red, orange and yellow. These purged colors line the road and cover the summer grass. Steam rises off the blue water of the lake with white foamy waves.
These two walls of windows are transformational art, and they breathe life into this drafty old house.

What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
