The walls and ceilings are hand plastered. The client's selected the color themselves - it is a nice off-white - not too bright and not too yellow.

The flooring is random lengths of Hickory. It has a lot of character! It is finished with OSMO clear satin finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home is filled with furnishings and accessories that the owners have collected together over time, with just a few new pieces brought in for the remodel. One of the owners is a book publisher; the built-in bookshelves that border the living area are stocked with volumes that are chosen for guests to browse. The wood floors are FSC-certified madrone finished with a nontoxic water-based sealer.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Warms Up In These 6 Great Homes
Large contemporary windows let in the view while wood floors, wood trimwork and well-worn oriental rugs add comfort and a sense of history.
