Now, the room benefits from a built-in sideboard and wider, open doorways. Adding the sideboard yielded four square niches. The Pauleys hired Chehalis, Washington, painter Robert Flanary (holtonframes.com) to fill those slots.

New cabinets were constructed, while old ones were repurposed. Originally located on another wall, the glass-door cabinets now bookend a madrone-topped sideboard. New glass knobs from Omega Too (omegatoo.com) match the originals.

The new natural palette links the indoors with the outdoors. Wall paint is Twisted Oak Path #226, and the sideboard is Cleveland Green #1525 (both from benjaminmoore.com).
