The DeLeeuw Residence By Young And Remington

Young and Remington designed this house in 1965 for a WWII veteran/pilot and his family. It is safe to say that this home would be considered a dream house for me and probably most of you. It doesn’t feel like there is an element that is out of place. I am quite sure that there has been a lot of love, blood, sweat, and tears put into this stunning example of mid century modern architecture. The current owner obviously have a passion for MCM and it shows with how they chose to furnish their home. The period pieces found through the house only add to the truly authentic structure that it is. Every room in this place it spot on!Did I mention it is currently on the market?

Residence For Two Collectors

This residence for two collectors by Wheeler Kearns Architects is quite the museum. The first thing that caught my attention were the dark stained end cut floors, pretty impressive. Paul Evans in more than one room…what? I am sure there are plenty of artists I don’t recognize smattered throughout these interiors. George Nakashima makes an appearance in these spaces as well. You know you are doing OK if you are hanging a Louis Poulsen PH Artichoke Pendant in your freaking closet. I would love a personal tour of the place and getting history of each piece would be a great experience. Read More

Modern Artist Residence By Heliotrope

This modern artist residence by Heliotrope is a breath of fresh air. I can’t tell if this is new construction or a reimagined structure. The house is nestled in-between older homes and it stands out in such a great way. The interiors are a bit contemporary for me but I am sure if you furnished the home with some nice vintage it would shine just as bright. I like how the ceilings are open, it makes the house feel bigger than it really is. The house is in Seattle and knowing that make it fit into its surrounding that much more. Read More
