Gustiv Stickley and his magazine, The Craftsman, first set the tone for the turn-of-the-twentieth-century house commonly known as Bungalow. He specified essentially organic colors for the exterior, such as natural gray, greens (dull, warm, and moss), bone, and biscuit. Such shades suited the unpainted natural materials with which he paired them, including stone, bricks of various hues, and redwood. Interior woods were usually left unpainted.
