Conard Romano Architects

This shingle-style home enjoys views up Lake Washington and into Meydenbauer Bay. In response to the sloping, north facing site, the house is elongated east to west to allow south light to penetrate the rooms on the north side. Its three main volumes, each oriented to optimize views and respond to the sloping site, house a library, formal living and dining, and large family room. Each has its own adjacent terrace to provide complementary outdoor space.

Exterior terraces are made of antique granite “planks” salvaged from flooded villages behind China’s Three Gorges Dam, also the source of the driveway cobbles. An earth sheltered guest house, clad in stone, doubles as a pool cabana in the summer months. The three-car garage is designed to support half-court basketball with a sport court floor and glass backboard.

We are thinking about putting a butcher block counter on the island of our new home. Do you think the counter should basically "match" the hard wood floors, or at least be close to the same color? It looks like they are in this photo. Thanks!

It doesn't have to match the hardwood floors, but it does look nice if they are very similar. I would either choose a butcher block that is very similar in color to the hardwood floors or go the other direction and choose one that contrasts nicely. Something in between will tend to look like you were trying to match the countertop to the flooring color and just missed. So, for a butcher block counter, I'd recommend either matching it to the flooring (like in the photo you attached) or going with a color that contrast well. Matching would be my first choice. I did notice that in most of the designer kitchen photos here at houzz, if the kitchen had butcher block counters and hardwood floors, they most often do appear to match or are very similar.
