Roy Lundgren design sit on an Orcas Island hilltop

Exposed beams are one of the subtle decor choices. They’re reminders of the wood structure and the surrounding nature, but don’t intrude. While this a great supply of windows, the house doesn’t devote itself to glass, which can be a bit intimidating if you’re the one who has to wash all of them.

Stainless steel appliances seem to show up everywhere, and somehow manage to blend with the color scheme by not being overly polished.

The color tones are taken up a notch in the three bedrooms and two bathrooms, especially where they get to play with a variety of ceiling angles on the second floor. The second floor also provides yet another view opportunity thanks to a balcony.

Built in 1994, it could look like a retiree’s home, but the office suggests work happens anywhere. Telescope and its distractions are optional.
