Architect Gregory J. Bader was in charge of renovating this shingle style house in Seattle. The interiors were decorated by Axel Vervoordt. Warm colours and elegant lines define this home with stunning views of Lake Washington. Let's take the tour.
Comfortable sofas and chairs are mixed with European antiques in the great room. An 18th-century French chest and a 1740s Italian settee flank the fireplace.
A banquette in the bay window with a stunning view of Lake Washington. An 18th-century beechwood-and-leather roundabout chair and a late-Victorian red leather barrel chair are grouped near a Regency center table.
Nineteenth-century equine paintings from the stables of a castle in Germany hang in the formal stair hall, which connects the entrance gallery with the library on the top floor. The 18th-century walnut chairs are French.
French doors open onto a terrace in the dining area on the main floor. An eclectic mix of antique seating surrounds the table. The chandelier, from the late 19th century, is Dutch.
A painting by Charles Joseph Watelet hangs above an 18th-century Venetian burl walnut desk in the library. The circa 1720 side chair is English.
