After raising a family in this 1928 Mediterranean-style Seattle home the owners were interested in a renovation that would serve their next decades as empty nesters. An early 1990s kitchen remodel was incongruous to the rest of the house, so our first design challenge was creating a new, well-functioning kitchen that had a harmonious connection to the warmth and romance of the original architecture. Hand glazed and cerused cabinet finishes with special door details and back splash tiles helped us create something unique for our clients. At the main floor, existing furniture of quality was maintained and reupholstered. New fabrics, furniture and area rugs helped update the project in modern way. Custom furniture was created for the renovated Master Suite using local trade workrooms. An updated Master Bathroom increased the function of a challengingly small floor plan and the new materials and vanity connect the second and main floors. The quiet sophistication of this design unified the spaces with respect to the past.
