 closet door disguised as part of the board-and-batten wall paneling opens to reveal the office's secondary workspace with file drawers, desktop, and storage cubes

A home office overlooking the deck is outfitted with armchairs and club chairs upholstered in a textured red-and-white check. Linda repeats the graphic yardage as draperies for windows with woven-wood shades. Built-in bookshelves feature an oversize wall clock, letters, and collections. A double-pedestal desk is positioned for views of the water, while silhouetted boats sail behind the desk chair as striking artwork.
