Lake Chelan
Vacation homes allow people to live in a casual atmosphere that reflects their interests and personalities. A canoe suspended from the ceiling and a naturally shed antler chandelier in the great room reinforce the lodge feeling that these clients were looking for. Acid stained concrete floors covered by custom Tibetan carpets are rich backdrops for cozy chenille covered upholstery. Warm rich colors are used to create an atmosphere of calmness and tranquility, a perfect escape for the weekend.

Interior Show Seattle Interiors Show 2003 "A Coastal Retreat"

Creating this display for the Seattle Interiors Show allowed me to step into a fantasy, making the perfect "Coastal Retreat", complete with a zen garden. The use of cool, calming colors and interesting textures provided the perfect backdrop for the beautiful Asian pieces used throughout the space. The Budji opium bed is a haven to escape to, a place to relax. The beautiful garden features a pair of antique Chinese doors and a water feature provides a soothing sound. The powder room area Antique Chinese cabinet is the perfect base for the art glass sink. Smooth pebbles in the limestone floor reinforce the cool aqua colorscheme, repeating the stones in the zen garden.

Bridle Trails Ranch Remodel

This ranch remodel transformed this property from outdated uninspired architecture to dramatic and bold. The use of sandstone and swooping the ceiling in the rear gave this home a completely different feeling. Located adjacent to Bridle Trails State Park, these clients are now able to keep their horses in the back yard, just a moments ride to the park. Burnished copper on the fireplace mantle and wrapping the kitchen bar add an interesting element. Beautiful carpets in rich colors anchor the dining and great room seating area while sumptuous chenille sofas provide comfortable seating.
