Seattle Home

In Seattle’s Magnolia district, this 1968 architectural gem quietly celebrates modernism and easeful living. Originally built for personal use by the architect, its unique u-shape enfolds a central courtyard and gives each room a perfect view of nature and the Puget Sound.

We delighted in the home’s inherent warmth. Our mid-century modern selections complement the original cedar walls and shoji screen pocket doors with child-friendly, natural materials that provide ample tactile and visual comfort..  

We sought out vintage furnishings from all over the West Coast to strike a balance between historical and handmade pieces. Upstairs, in the formal living room, we amplified the family’s love for music with a seamless record console cabinet. In each guest bedroom, we crafted minimalist yet restful moments for visitors to unwind in the home’s tranquil atmosphere. Splashes of color and hearty plants throughout evoke liveliness and bridge the interior to the surrounding greenery.

In our favorite space, the cozy downstairs den, we went low and solid—a custom travertine table is the gravitational center framed by a plush sectional and lit by soft, handmade lamps. Outdoors, in the courtyard and poolside spaces, we opted for the loungy and indestructible 1966 collection from Richard Shcultz.
