Could there be more than a half-dozen Usonians with board-and-sunk-batten ceilings ?
The interiors in the photo set appear to be green-biased; either the color balance is off or the house has been treated to an ox-blood stain treatment -- and the decor has been carefully edited. Maybe all three ?
For the curious, these photos are of the original portion of the house:
#3 original living room
#4 original living room looking toward masonry "cubes"...the passage to the left of the fireplace was opened by Wright in the later '40's expansion, the wet bar to the right of the fireplace is an enclosed passage which led to the original entry.
#11 original master bedroom as altered/expanded by Wright in the later expansion project.
#13 terrace side of original living room, original bedroom wing is to the left...it would appear the long cantilevered trellis at the tip of the living room wing has been shortened; see plans here:

#5 another angle of the original living room

The original Sondern living room looks to my eye as a more nuanced version of the Loren Pope living room...I love it.

Ironic, if so, that the auction house should have come to our attention this year for its sales of multiple Wright works-on-paper---works whose provenance suggests that they were stolen from Taliesin while Mr Wright was still alive...
