HOURS OF OPERATION

LIVING A HEALTHFUL LIFE IS EASY WHEN YOU’RE AT THE CLUB, BUT TRUE WELLNESS EXTENDS TO THE HOME. THIS ISSUE IS ALL ABOUT HOW TO MAKE YOUR SPACE A SANCTUARY FOR WELLBEING. To set the mood for good health and happiness in the home, I suggest starting with the story on page 34 that digs into the concept of hygge—the art of being cozy and comfortable. In the Pacific Northwest, it serves as a good strategy to combat the cold, gray weather and occasional seasonal affective disorder. Bellevue Club member and local interior designer Ann Lundquist is a huge fan of hygge, and she designed her own Belgium-style Medina home with the idea in mind. Get inspired with photos of her work on page 50. If you’re already happy with the look and feel of your home but you want to find more ways to get moving within it, check out the feature on starting a home yoga practice with Bellevue Club teacher Nicky Ruiz. She breaks down the 10 simple postures that can change the way you wake up in the morning. Lastly, if your definition of wellness includes hitting the road every now and then, be sure to read “Van Go” on page 60. The feature highlights a Seattle-based rental company that specializes in outfitting renovated VW vans with all the creature comforts you can imagine.

MORNING MOVEMENTS Start your day with this basic yoga series to awaken your awareness in the comfort of your own home. written

by

lauren hunsberger

by

taryn emerick

The series of yoga poses known as sun salutations is the backbone of most traditional yoga practices. It’s also a great sequence to start your day (hence the name). The movements are simple, effective and can be done in just a few minutes right in your bedroom. No stretchy pants necessary. “A morning yoga routine, no matter how big or small, reduces stress and anxiety. Asana (physical yoga) releases endorphins, improving mood, alertness and memory function,” says Nicky Ruiz, Bellevue Club yoga teacher. “The yoga practice is a means of attaining mindfulness. Awareness of your body, your posture, the way you breath, how you move, the moment, and also how you think. The more likely you are to attain these connections, the more likely you are to maintain them throughout your day.” Ruiz emphasizes that your practice doesn’t have to be elaborate to influence your mind and life. “Less can be more. It’s far more important to be consistent than to make each yoga practice a big thing or obligation. Even simply taking a few minutes to sit upright and remove busy distractions by closing your eyes, taking slow deep rhythmic breaths and setting an intention can be a yoga practice. Yoga is meant to offer relief from the pressures of everyday life, not serve as another task on the to-do list.”

Ruiz demonstrates the movements that make up basic sun salutations. She suggests repeating the series five to ten times.

7. URDHVA MUKHA SVANASANA / BHUJANGASANA

1. SAMASTITIHI

8. ADHO MUKHA SVANASANA

Start in an equal stance, with your weight evenly distributed in both feet. Concentrate on rhythmic breathing. 2. URDHVA HASTASANA

Inhale. Reach your arms up. Then lightly lift the belly up and in (a core engagement known as Uddiyana Bandha).

Inhale, lift the chest in upward-facing dog or cobra. Exhale. Engage bandhas (or core). Push back into downward-facing dog by reaching your hips back and up. Root down through the heels. Remain here for five to 10 deep breaths. 9. UTTANASANA

Exhale. Fold forward, bending the knees as needed.

Step forward. Inhale and lift up halfway. Keep your knees unlocked and draw the shoulder blades together. Exhale. Fold forward. Bend your knees as needed. Remain here five to 10 deep breaths.

4. ARDHA UTTANASANA

10. URDHVA HASTASANA

3. UTTANASANA

Inhale, and lift halfway. Lengthen entire spine. Stay strong in the legs. 5. KUMBHAKASANA

Exhale. Step your feet back to plank. Shift body forward while inhaling again. 6. CHATURANGA DANDASANA

Exhale while slowly bending the elbows to lower the body, either all the way to the floor and or just slightly.

Inhale and sweep the arms overhead while keeping a bend in the knees and the legs strong to help lift the body. (BACK TO) 1. SAMASTITIHI

Exhale and bring the hands together at the heart center. Feel the equal stance again. Check in with your breathing. From here, you are in the perfect place to start the series again.

FIRE TOES POSE:

For a little extra heat, stretch your feet every morning with this enlivening pose. Ruiz explains that it helps practitioners connect to their foundation, the feet! “Recognizing your foundation is an important realization that can help carry you through your day. This pose will help remove the effects of slouching and side sleeping, and it will open the heart and throat, a common place for people to hold stress and anxiety.”

EMBraCE HYGGE, THE aRT OF COZINESS aND CHaRM Residents of the Pacific Northwest experience more rain and cloudy days than most—meaning we take to shelter inside for the better part of the year. Our natural inclination to move indoors and find comfort in our dry homes has created a culture that craves cozy, comfortable living.

TITLE FEATURE

T

hat oh-so-Seattle style landed our community in the top spot for America’s “Most Hygge City,” according to Sperling’s Best Places. Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, whether at home or out, as cozy, charming or special. In the last two years, United States pop culture has obsessed over hygge. In 2016, the Oxford Dictionaries put hygge on the shortlist for “Word of the Year” and book after book was published about the concept of Scandinavian coziness.

Hygge is not to be overlooked as a lifestyle craze that comes with a whiff of smugness but is gone the next season. Several studies about happiness land on Scandinavian countries as having the “most happy people.” With that in mind, what harm can come from adopting a few of their lifestyle habits? Seattle’s reign as “most hygge” is due to our abundance of coffee shops and love of reading. We are a population that enjoys indoor board games and other activities, as well as our constant rain, which keeps us indoors often.

If you want to bring a little more hygge If If bellevue club march 2018 | 35


If you want to bring a little more hygge into your home for comfort and coziness 24/7, try a few of these Danish decorating tips:

BRING THE OUTDOORS INSIDE With the long winters and dreary skies, the Danes bring natural elements like twigs, plants, and nuts indoors. There’s also something about kindling, a roaring fireplace and its warmth that makes people feel closer to nature. That simple pleasure and its smell is very hygge. The Bellevue Nursery is a great source for indoor plants perfect for this environment. LIGHT A CANDLE OR TWO No recipe for hygge is complete without candles. Turning down the electric lights and lighting candles throughout a room can transform the environment. Add an aromatherapy candle to the mix for ultimate hygge. Stop by Glassybaby’s Bellevue location for a simple, sweet votive to enhance the environment. FILL YOUR SPACE WITH COMFORT Pillows and blankets are a must. But just like a cozy sweater, the cushions in your house are a very personal decision. Cotton? Wool? You choose. West Elm, Pottery Barn and Pier 1 are all here in our backyard. UNPLUG Creating a hygge atmosphere is only half the fun; you could adjust your habits too. Try unplugging your TV or keeping your phone in another room. Have one or two rooms in your home dedicated to hygge—comfortable, soft, natural and distractionfree. Instead of looking at a screen, try reading a good book or playing board games with friends.

A Guide to Commissioning Art written

Step 1

Buying art can be like falling in love—the emotional attachment you have to the pieces in your home makes your heart skip a beat each time you walk by. Hopping from one social gathering to another and hoping to find your match can be exhausting and limits your options. It’s the same when it comes to art. You can visit galleries, follow your favorite artists and hope one day you fall in love, or you can take matters into your own hands and commission a piece of art you know is just right. Local artist Melanie Biehle breaks down the process below.

CHOOSING AN ARTIST Commissioning art is a creatively engaging and rewarding process, but it is also a commitment of time, money and trust. Before jumping into the process, it’s important to have a game plan. First and foremost, pick an artist you connect with and already enjoy. “For instance, if you’re looking to commission a portrait, don’t hire an abstract painter,” Melanie Biehle, a Seattle-based artist explains. “The key is to find an artist whose style will complement your own.” Biehle is a local abstract artist influenced by the city and the ocean. Her work is strongly influenced by street art, mid-century textiles and Southern California surf culture. Biehle has been featured in HGTV Magazine, Seattle Refined, Uppercase Magazine, Flow Magazine and Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine. For Biehle, the process that comes with creating a commissioned piece of art and merging her ideas with another person’s is rewarding. “I love the process of collaboration and seeing what emerges from blending ideas, color palettes, and styles to create something completely unique.” Most artists should have websites, social media accounts and client reviews. Don’t hesitate to ask for anything you need to feel comfortable about your choice.

Step 2

KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, BUT NOT TOO WELL

Step 3

SIGNING THE CONTRACT AND GETTING TO WORK

There are a few key things to consider when commissioning a new piece: where it’ll go, what you want it to look and feel like, and if there are other pieces you enjoy and can point to for reference. Once you contact an artist, they’ll most likely ask you for some information like the size you want, the style and what timeline you’re working with. Your budget will also be a factor in the size, materials and timeline. Each artist works differently. Biehle also asks her clients if there are any color palettes they particularly enjoy or any colors they don’t want to see in the piece at all. She will visit a local client’s home to see the space where the painting will hang. Most artists want several details about the piece you’re looking for. “But not too many,” Biehle says. “You want to leave some room for the artist to merge their creative vision with yours.”

Once the basic details are communicated, the artist will most likely brainstorm, provide mood boards and remedial sketches or examples of their concept. Once the creative direction is approved and contracts or payment handled, it’s time to get started. Biehle normally sends one or two work-in-progress pictures to keep the client involved along the way. Then, once it’s finished, the piece is off to its new home. Every artist proceeds differently when it comes to each step of the artistic process. Some want more details, some fewer. Some are good at staying in contact and want you to be involved, and some don’t. Just like dating, pick your artist wisely and choose someone who makes you feel comfortable with his or her process.

Step 4 FALL IN LOVE

Remember to leave a little room for magic. “It’s great to know what you want, and it’s helpful to provide the artist with direction,” Biehle says. “But if you also choose to enter the collaboration with a bit of an open mind, there’s a chance that you could end up with even more than you first imagined.”

HOME IS WHERE THE HOUSEPLANTS ARE


With the rise of house jungles, “jungalows” and urban rainforests, indoor plants have exploded in popularity in the past couple of years. Now, instead of family photos and books lining shelves, it’s common to see a fiddle-leaf fig or a snake plant. written

by

samantha lund

Much like the seasonal life of a plant, the indoor gardening trend comes and goes. Beginning in the early 2010s, the indoor cacti and succulent trend emerged, as people were looking for cheap, easy and low-maintenance plants to keep alive—much easier to live a hectic lifestyle with a succulent waiting for you at home rather than a pet. That trend evolved from low-maintenance cacti to bigger, more lush indoor gardens as new and young plant-fans grew in gardening confidence. Then social media took over. With a flurry of Instagram accounts and hashtags, the urban “jungalows” became the latest styling trend—and even though it can be joked about as another millennial craze, there are some very real advantages that come with surrounding yourself with a green plant gang. The indoor jungle has taken over, and in 2017 Pantone’s “Color of the Year” was greenery.

Above and beyond adding a pop of color to a space, living with plants can reduce stress and pain, help you sleep better, improve air quality, lower background noises and keep air temperatures down. “Plants transpire, absorbing carbon dioxide and exuding oxygen in return,” Bellevue Club’s Garden Floral Manager Lisa Yost says. “Studies have shown that living plants in an interior space improve productivity.” The recent boom of urban rainforests makes most plant-human relationship researchers excited that younger generations are most likely going to have a strong, lifelong connection to nature. Now, you know you want to begin your own indoor paradise complete with spiraling vines and tiny succulents lining your kitchen window. But where do you start? “Since light is the ultimate factor for success in growing plants indoors, any low-light-tolerant plant will perform better,” Yost explains. She suggests looking into Chinese evergreens (aglaonema), pothos (philodendron), dracaenas, snake plants (sansevieria) and last but not least, cast-iron plants (aspidistra). “However, if you have lots of natural light, you can successfully grow many different types of plants.”

When it comes to care and watering, Yost suggests new gardeners come up with a schedule, keep a simple checklist and err on the dry side. “I don’t know how many plants I have killed with kindness by overwatering.” For example, Yost suggests choosing one day every week, or every other, depending on your plants, to make sure you water them, clean them and look for any little pests making your houseplant their home. She also suggests spending money on good soil as it’s akin to good nutrition in humans. “They also have life-spans like we do,” Yost says. “Don’t take it personally if a plant dies, even after many years of the same care.” With a rise in gardening demand, there’s also been a rise in specialty gardening blogs, books and stores. It’s never been easier to get into growing something green. “I suggest if you’re serious about growing plants, go to a reputable nursery with a trained staff to help you,” Yost says. Before you go, pick a place for your plant in your home so you know the amount of light exposure and plant size you’re looking for. “And of course, there is always the Internet with a plethora of knowledge right at your fingertips.”

Old World meets eastside

Interior designer and Bellevue Club member displays a different side to eastside style

Ann Lundquist is not a fan of trends.

Take one step into her Medina home and it’s obvious. Eschewing the gray, brown and sage-green color palettes often found in the Northwest, she prefers warm creams and whites with pops of red, pink and yellow. Her décor relies heavily on Old World antiques and fresh flowers, and even the structure is distinct, modeled after a Belgium stripped-down style that holds symmetry, clean lines, minimal features (there’s no molding) and garden access in the highest regard. “We built this home 15 years ago. It was a really fun process,” says Lundquist, an interior designer and Washington native. And every last detail of the house is meaningful to her. She drew the floor plan herself and says the best part of the process was that she was able to focus on exactly what was most important to her—creating a home perfect for entertaining and brimming with charm. “I absolutely love having people over to my house. Setting up a nice little bar, having laughter in the house, lighting candles, and taking care of people in a really relaxed way—that is my heaven,” Lundquist says. The way she designed it, every room in the house can be used to entertain. “I really wanted a big welcoming entry for that reason. We’ve even put a long table in there before,” she says. Once she had a good footprint, she added layers of furniture with beautiful fabrics, antique tables and mirrors mixed with modern art. It’s a collected look that she’s curated throughout the years.

“I challenge my clients to push against the trends. Make sure what you’re putting in place can really stand the test of time.”

52 | march 2018 reflections


• “One thing I tell residential clients is to try and have a little more patience with the process. Take the time to find your unique perspective on your home,” she says. “I encourage people to create their own little world.” Of course, her other big piece of advice is to think outside the box. “I challenge my clients to push against the trends. Make sure what you’re putting in place—modern or traditional—can really stand the test of time,” she says. “Pick timeless pieces with maybe one quirky light fixture.” While she relies on certain principles of design, Lundquist says the look and feel of her own home isn’t necessarily for everyone. When she’s working with clients, she doesn’t impress her style upon their homes. The basement of the house was designed to be her studio, which is filled to the brim with fabric swatches, design books and plenty of inspiration.

“Everyone has a unique point of view or taste, and I can help hone that. I’m not here to put my stamp on it. I’m here to express your vision and prevent you from making mistakes— it’s so common and expensive to make mistakes,” she says. Lundquist has acquired tricks and tips to avoid making those mistakes over the decades she’s been in business as an interior designer. “When people are trying to figure out what they like, I suggest playing with putting a piece of art in your home that is slightly outside your comfort zone—but resonates with you. And then work around that piece, building a little bit of a collected look with a few antiques. Even if you prefer mostly modern, and I love to design modern homes, it’s really nice to have a yin and yang of old and new,” she says. “Have some reference point to the past.”

Ann’s entertainment tips Interior design and entertaining go hand in hand for Lundquist. Here are her tricks for hosting an easy evening that’s sure to please. ON AMBIANCE: “I definitely use a lot of candles. I also make it a point to turn on lamps all over the house; that way, people don’t feel restricted to just one part of the house. And I have dimmers on everything, even exterior light.” ON THE BASICS: “It takes time to build up to it, but having the equipment makes entertaining easy. Have enough plates, platters, table settings, big bowls for salads. Have enough chairs. I have a bunch of folding chairs from Cost Plus, and I use them all the time.” ON THE FOOD: “I don’t think people expect insanely complicated food. I do a bunch of salads and cook-ahead dishes, and then maybe make one hot thing fresh out of the oven.” ON BEING HOSTESS: “I’m a huge proponent of mastering the art of imperfection. I entertain with that in mind, and I’m very relaxed about it.” ON ENTERTAINING MORE: “I think sometimes people don’t think their house is finished enough to show it, but I really encourage people to not overthink entertaining because when you have people over you swirl around and freshen it up, maybe bring in fresh flowers. And it looks better after a couple of hours.” ON HER FAVORITE TYPE OF EVENT: “What I really like is the random dinner party. People don’t expect it to be lavish. It can be simple.”

“On a road trip, all sorts of things can happen on any given day.”

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN

If you haven’t taken a peek at the hashtag #vanlife on Instagram, you might not realize how coveted the idea of traveling by van is these days. In an article last year, The New Yorker explained #vanlife as “a one-word life-style signifier that has come to evoke a number of contemporary trends: a renewed interest in the American road trip, a culture of hippieinflected outdoorsiness, and a life free from the tyranny of a nine-to-five office job.” Of course, with a rental, you only get to escape that world for a week or two at a time, but even just dabbling with van life has struck a chord with the public. In early 2016, Peace Vans Rentals launched with four vehicles. In just over two years, they’re up to 19 vehicles, including Vanagons, Eurovans and two modern Mercedes camper vans. July was already fully booked before January ended. “These days, most vacations are so preprogrammed and preplanned and preordained; the opportunity for serendipitous experiences is somewhat limited,” Sitner says. “On a road trip, all sorts of things can happen on any given day.” 62 | march 2018 reflections


“By definition, you’re introducing a little variability in your vacation [with a road trip], so we like to counter that with comfortable predictability: nice cutlery, dishes, and high-end linens and sleeping bags.”

SOMETHING TO RELY ON

That sense of spontaneity is what attracts people to vacation in a van, but we’re also a culture that likes to have our creature comforts. To that end, Peace Vans Rentals stocks their vehicles with a French press coffeemaker, a 12-part spice kit, a premium sound system, a modern refrigerator, curtains for privacy, all the cookware you could need (such as a cheese grater, a garlic press, whisks, measuring cups, mixing bowls and more), pots and pans, wineglasses and maybe even a few surprises—basically, all the essentials from home in a pretty cool package. “By definition, you’re introducing a little variability in your vacation [with a road trip], so we like to counter that with comfortable predictability: nice cutlery, dishes, and highend linens and sleeping bags,” Sitner says. That predictability extends to the condition of the fleet. To get a van ready for the rental pool, the company invests a minimum of $20,000. “While it retains nostalgia, under the hood it’s basically a new vehicle,” Sitner says. This ensures a smooth ride so that renters can worry about when they’re going to take their next bathroom break or where they’ll stop for the night instead of whether their vehicle’s on the verge of breaking down.

p h o t o s p r o v i d e d b y p e a c e va n s

“They’re amazing smile machines,” Sitner says of the fleet. “Every single renter is smiling when they pick up and smiling even bigger when they drop off.”

HIT THE ROAD

Once you’ve got your home away from home locked down, deciding where to go is the fun part. The company has developed several detailed itineraries to offer inspiration, from the San Juan Islands to the Oregon high desert to Eastern Washington. The most popular destination, though, is the Olympic Peninsula. “There are snow-capped mountains, a rain forest, coastal beaches, wild rivers—there’s so much you can do on the peninsula,” Sitner says. If you’re not sure if van life is up your alley (and those Instagram images don’t have you convinced), you’re welcome to drop by the shop and take a closer look. This can also be helpful in deciding which style is best suited to you. In 2017, more than 700 passengers traveled 154,651 miles, making an estimated 3,195 s’mores and probably a whole lot of new friends, too—these vehicles are attention grabbers. “They’re amazing smile machines,” Sitner says of the fleet. “Every single renter is smiling when they pick up and smiling even bigger when they drop off.”
