Getting the Look

The Arts and Crafts wallpaper above the fireplace is from Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers (707/746-1900). Polly Moore chose the Birchwood pattern for the living room and Fir Tree pattern for the dining room. A Morris chair completes the look.

The white subway tile backsplash in the remodeled kitchen highlights the warmth of the new wood cabinets. New ceiling beams evoke the look of traditional coffers.

Echoing Motifs

Reproduction art glass lampshade (next to sideboard) is from Brass & Glass (510/654-0929). The Celtic ribbon motif echoes the accent tiles in the kitchen backsplash.

The View from the Window Seat

A view of Monterey Bay from the window seat ― a hallmark of Craftsman architecture ― puts nature on display. One of a pair of original Stickley rocking chairs faces the view.
