Living room fireplace is marble; walls are the original "pickled wood" – pickling was a method of making the walls look aged yet elegant.
The living room faces west and opens at its corner to the newly rebuilt deck.
Fireplace on feature wall of living room, paneled in hardwood. The swanky, curving sofa seems custom-made for the room, but was originally in the Wong's Pearl District office.
Trish Grantham's artwork adorns many of the walls of the art loving Wong family's house. The expansive living opens to floor to ceiling windows on two sides.
View from living room through the pass-through wet bar into the dining room. Such touches make the house a perfect setting for an elegant cocktail party, in the 1950s or now.
The dining room - view into the living room includes fireplace and pass-through bar.
Child's room includes Trish Grantham murals.

Glam details: transom lights flank the front door. The white-painted wood and geometric pattern are both intriguingly atypical of the popular, more rustic Northwest Regional Modernism so many architects were practicing at that time in the 1950s.
"Hi Honey, I'm home!" – The door knob of the front door is unapologetically oversized.
Stylized and spare wood ceiling of entryway. The brick clad entry is set back from the busy, curving street and flanked by a carport.
