A name in the history of Seattle architecture that we don't see come up often enough around here is Ellsworth Storey. A master of combining contemporary trends with local materials, some of Storey's homes are still considered among the best in the city. Per HistoryLink, "The window designs, the extensive use of local wood, wide projecting eaves, and siting of these adjacent houses combine Arts and Crafts sensibilities with the Swiss building type." That's pretty evident in the Swiss Chalet-style 4-BR in Mt. Baker that just hit the market asking $928K. While there have been clear updates, you can still see plenty of original materials that almost certainly came local as Storey was one of the original masters of what would come be known as "regionalism." No matter how you decorate it, the leaded glass windows, French doors and other touches will keep this house firmly affixed in the style its creator chose.
