How would you describe a 'barefoot home'?

15 years ago

Yesterday I was skimming a book, The Barefoot Home: Dressed Down Design for Casual Living, and it struck me that that describes the feeling that I want to get out of my house when it is completed. I want the type of home that is comfortable for kids and adults to come into unannounced and enjoy themselves and relax. I want it open and airy, and not at all fussy. We plan to have a very open floorplan, hardwood floors, lots of windows, natural materials, etc., but I wonder if that is enough.

What do you think that a "barefoot home" would look like? And what would you do to make it that way?

I look forward to reading the responses...
