The painting studio in this Whidbey Island, Wash., home also serves as a performance venue for chamber music concerts.

An operable, interior garage door separates the painting studio from the living room.

When the studio door is open, it highlights the home's double-height ceilings and loft-like feeling.

An inviting fireplace anchors the living room, which is encircled above by a mezzanine-level sleeping loft.

The studio's Homasote walls boost its acoustical qualities.


Views of the evergreens and sky outside create a restful atmosphere.

Western red cedar with a semi-solid stain clads the home's minimalist exterior.

Decks off the rear of the house allow for outdoor living.
