Stunning views, but how much white, beige, and warm grey can one stand? No Merlot at the party!
I’d be interested in seeing what the house was like in 1973 just after completion...I’d bet it was gentler on the landscape and warmer and visually richer at its interior.

Absolutely correct, DRN. The house was featured in AR in the 70s. It was originally much smaller, and the color scheme was not dead white, nor the rather bold hues popular in the 70s, but a warm array of colors, autumnal, as I recall. When the view from one's wall of butt-joined slabs of glass is of snowcapped mountains, one needs something in the way of color that does not call to mind the interior of a freezer in need of defrosting.
