Beautiful Riad

Posted on Wed, 19 Jul 2017 by KiM

A chill wind is whistling around my house, tugging on windows and licking under doors. I’m cold and miserable and need a little lift. Time for a virtual getaway. Ah Morocco can you get anymore perfect? Sunshine sliding down smooth plaster walls, dappled shadows on plunge pools, mid century classics mixed with medina finds. A beautiful escape to the Beautiful Riad Marrakesh.

A glam penthouse in Chicago

This is quite the modern, glamorous penthouse in Chicago, architected and designed by the incredibly talented Kara Mann. But the pièce de résistance is that bathroom. DAMN GIRL will you look at that marble!!!!

A renovated 1940’s home in Seattle

Posted on Tue, 18 Jul 2017 by KiM

When unexpected styles collide. A fabulous home designed by Seattle-based Brio Interior Design. A 1940’s home where the client’s mother spent her teenage years was purchased from the grandfather’s estate shortly after his passing. The purchase and renovation were a way to reinvent history by making an old home new again for the young family who decided the house carried too many precious memories to be sold to the next highest bidder. Perched atop a generously sized waterfront lot in north Seattle with panoramic views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic mountain range, the aesthetic of the home is classic meets modern and eclectic. It’s fun, colorful and whimsical. Perfect for a family that dines most days together in a formal dining room around a table that family members have gathered at for decades to celebrate the best things in life.

A pretty kitchen by Caitlin Wilson

Posted on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 by KiM

I don’t typically use an adjective like ‘pretty’ to describe a kitchen but it’s the first word that came to mind when I saw this space designed by San Francisco and Portland based Caitlin Wilson. Marble subway tile, mostly white cabinets, brass, pastel accents…I can’t help it. SO PRETTY!
