This polished master bedroom is filled with bright color, and a showstopping Kelly Wearstler wallpaper. Our client has a great 1920's bungalow in the Seattle's Rainier Valley. Her style is artistic and glamorous, and she loves statement pieces. We decided the best way to transform the grey boxy room that she started with was to add statement walls. We designed the custom wainscoting and applied a major WOW wallpaper, and then filled the room with cozy, vibrant accents. The perfect complimentary ceiling fixture and custom closet doors that echo the lines of the wallpaper were the finishing touches.
This kitchen is in a house built in 1922, so it needed to reflect the era in a traditional, timeless manner. However, the owners wanted it to also be fresh, clean, and current. We used floor-to-ceiling subway tile to reflect the light and make it easy to keep clean (a must with two boys!), custom built cabinetry so that everything would have a place, and included some fun details like a French blue Viking stove, brass library lights and hardware, and a traditional farmhouse sink from England.
We designed two different but complimentary looks for the room to keep the eye moving; one side is an ethereal blue color we created for the project and has marble counters, while the other side of the kitchen is warm white with wood butcher block countertops. Both sides have the same brass hardware and cabinet design so that the room is cohesive.
This project involved some major demo work (an old unused chimney previously took up a lot of wall space) and some reconfiguring in order to make the room work best for the family. There was originally an eating nook off the kitchen, but now that the boys are busy with school and sports, it had become a dumping ground for backpacks, projects, and soccer shoes. We moved a wall and added a large bank of cabinets that have room for all of the boys' gear, and a bonus closet for cleaning supplies that previously had to be stored in the basement. The family is thrilled with the new use of the space tailored to their needs!
This complete room redecorate refreshed the living, dining and entry for a client that loves color. It now features perfectly proportioned furniture, statement lighting, custom window treatments, and accessories to bring in layers of texture.
Our client's home is on a forested lot, and we all know Seattle can be a little dreary, so they really desired a master bedroom that would be flooded with as much natural light as possible. They also love dreamy but strong colors! We opened up the window wall with double French doors, and then added lacquered bedside tables and oversized mirrors that would bounce the light around. A soft palette of blues and grays reflects the Seattle sky, but accents of navy, orange, and turquoise keep the space exciting.
We recently completed a complete transformation of a 1940s retail building into a chic, glamorous, approachable bridal shop for The Dress Theory - Seattle's most lovely place to find your dream wedding dress.
The design is feminine (men very rarely cross the threshold of a bridal shop, so the owner wanted a space that would be perfect for a special day with the girls!), cozy, and relaxed for a comfortable shopping experience. The space is flooded with beautiful light that reminds us of the chicest of all cities, so this was very much a chance to play pretend and design for our "single girl living in Paris" fantasy.
