Huniford’s presentation, titled “American Design in the New Century,” featured a slide show of rooms he has designed for clients on both coasts. “To me, interiors should not be about trends; they should be about people and how they live,” Huniford said—and that, in a nutshell, is what Seattle Homes & Lifestyles celebrates as well. In this issue, we feature dream homes—and a dream garden—that were created expressly to fit the way their owners live, whether it’s a land-based city home with a water view for former floating-home residents or a Camano Island second home that is both “contemporary and craftsman” for a retired couple who love to host family and friends. We also feature another second home, on Whidbey Island, and a garden that satisfies its owner’s desire to grow vegetables and herbs, flowers and fruit—as well as to include classic features such as stately columns, a grotto and a pool with a marble fountain. Also in this issue, our regular departments include stories about great island shopping finds (Style, page 14), decorating with a Moroccan flair (Trend, page 16), a modern table setting (At the Table, page 20), a Capitol Hill kitchen remodel (Before & After, page 54), Leschi real estate (page 68), our staff ’s favorite picnic items (Right Now, page 80) and more. Dream homes are not the only palette for 21st-century redesigns. As I type these words, our designers and technology experts are polishing a revamped SeattleHomesMag.com website. In addition to great content from our print magazine, exclusive online articles and our popular Design Dish blog, the site will feature a fresh new look and greater interactivity. We invite you to take a look and let us know what you think.

Whether you are looking to add unexpected accessories to your primary home, furnish a second home or simply pick up souvenirs from a day trip, an island shopping adventure may be just the ticket. Shops on Whidbey and Bainbridge islands do beachy and more, offering a variety of styles from antique to international to contemporary and beyond. We were excited to find vintage ikat fabric in the Langley carpet shop owned by a former diplomat couple and were charmed by a new boutique on Bainbridge that offers all handmade crafts and accessories. Set sail for the islands, and you’ll surely discover items to love.

MOROCCAN WRITTEN AND COMPILED BY NANCY CLARK

Bazaa‡

SURROUNDED BY UNSURPASSED BEAUTY, Morocco garners its design aesthetic from the exotic North African locale. From the ocean, desert, mountains and countryside emerges a luscious color palette of natural colors, ranging from sand to saffron, ginger and paprika. The exotic feel of Moroccan-inspired décor derives from patterns and textures influenced by Spanish, French and Islamic design, exhibiting an eclectic mix of intricately carved wood furnishings, delicate paisley patterns, highly textured Kilim rugs, quatrefoil motifs, Moorish arches and metal lanterns. The re-emergence of these ethnic elements in modern design highlights the timeless quality of Moroccan style, creating interiors with layers upon layers of furnishings, tapestries and textiles.

eter David has always been interested in light. As a child, he painted tissue paper onto his windows, observing the different effects created by the changing outdoor light. “Glass is the only thing that I have found that can capture the nature of light,” David explains. His fascination with glass and his lifelong artistic affinity led him to open Peter David Studios Inc. in 1980. Thirty years later, his glassworking company is still going strong, creating custom pieces for clients across the country and beyond. Currently, David is designing a 306-square-foot glass ceiling for a hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. In addition to international commissions, Peter David Studios creates custom pieces for local clients, including a sculpture in the Seattle City Council chambers and glasswork at Swedish Medical Center. The studio creates more than 350 different kinds of glass and incorporates them into projects using stained glass, fused glass, neon glass, sculptural glass, etched glass, carved glass and the fabrication of glass furniture. David’s years of work have not gone unnoticed. He won an award for “electric fine design” in Sign of the Times magazine for a neon-filled bonsai tree sculpture and was published in a design spotlight in Architectural Digest in 2004. He has also been featured in several books and national publications. One of his bonsai trees is in the permanent collection at L.A.'s Museum of Neon Art. Peter David's son, Nathaniel David, now helps run the company as vice president and production manager. Although the younger David has been around glass his entire life, it wasn’t until 2001, when he began working in his father’s studio, that Nathaniel became involved at an artistic level. “I have client consultations and work with designers to help them realize their vision, and from that I help translate the vision to an actual item for our staff in the shop,” he says. The realization of vision is important to both men and stands as a cornerstone of the business.

According to Nathaniel, experimenting with the medium is an important part of this realization. “Many of our most striking things have been developed simply by taking a tool, a process or a material and just seeing what happens when

you do something different with it,” he says. “If you misuse something in a certain way, you really can get a fascinating result.” As father and son have discovered, there are benefits to following the light.

As May eases into June, spring slips into summer in the Northwest, and our thoughts turn to vacation getaway destinations close at hand. A Penn Cove second home (page 26) was a design labor of love for the lady of the house, who created a space that is both elegant and relaxed. On nearby Camano Island, another second home (page 34) meets its owners’ desire to have room for everyone, without overpowering the established neighborhood they love. And in Ballard (page 40), a couple of former live-aboard boaters find their land legs, without sacrificing a spectacular water view. Sometimes one’s own landscape can provide all the escape you need, and our featured Clyde Hill garden (page 46) certainly proves this point. We hope these stories help inspire your own transition to summer, with plenty of ideas for imaginative getaways near or far.

what it might look like. The Nashes contacted the Feagles’ architect, Todd Soli of Soli Terry Architects, and began dreaming—on paper. Inspired by the stately beach houses that dot the Northeast, Amy asked Soli to create that look for her family. Two years later, in 2002, the Sammamish couple and their four children had a vacation place of their own, next door to their friends’ getaway. That was also the year, unfortunately, that Jeff got traded to the New York Giants. A bittersweet goodbye was eased by Amy’s regular visits with Michelle in New York, where the friends share their penchant for design by shopping together for antiques. Amy’s love of traditional style, which she shares with Michelle, fueled design plans for the Nashes’ vacation home, on Whidbey’s Penn Cove. Amy worked with Soli, fine-tuning the plans until they achieved the architectural look she was craving. Amy wanted to re-create the look of a Cape Cod beach house.

“It’s the little details that are the hardest decisions, but they make a big difference,” she says. Details such as mullioned windows and extra-wide moldings provide the perfect backdrop to the home’s classical styling. “She just has a touch,” Soli says of his client. “She pored over every inch in the plans and put a lot of time into it.” Though not formally trained in design, Amy knows what she likes, and she found and bought every antique fixture and piece of furniture for the house herself. “I learned by shopping in antique stores and seeing things when I travel,” she says. “I just choose pieces I like.” The result is a space that ultimately reflects Amy’s personal style. Despite the old-world elegance of antique fixtures, the Nashes deliberately left pomp and circumstance out of the plans. The family’s casual

lifestyle shaped aspects of the design, and an open floor plan was important. They wanted plenty of space to entertain and room to foster family togetherness. Amy even questioned the necessity of a formal front door, since she knew the family would come and go through French doors that open to the back porch and the beach. (In the end, architect and homeowner opted to include one to stay true to the architectural style.) For gatherings, Amy usually cooks casual dishes in the gourmet kitchen and sets up a buffet on the enormous soapstone center island. “The house was really centered around this kitchen,” she says. Here, her love of design almost overtook her love of cooking. “I had a really clear idea of the look I wanted,” she says.

china gave Amy exactly what she envisioned for their traditional home. The family shares meals around a long table and custom-made benches that Amy chose to accommodate a crowd. “We had about 16 people up for Thanksgiving, and we all fit around the table,” she says. Dark wood paneling above the table, an idea from Robert—of which he is very proud—adds visual interest and defines the space within the open floor plan. The dark wood is repeated upstairs, on the hallway’s striking barrel-vault ceiling. “Architecturally, the roofline is one of the more interesting aspects of the design,” Soli explains, adding that the use of shed dormers and gables allows for intriguing spaces, some of which are used for extra storage. “One of the really clever things Todd did was make the firewood-storage structure open up through a small door into the house,” Amy says. “That way, we don’t have to go outside in the cold to get more wood.” Adequate storage was critical for this large family, and they got it with spacious second-floor closets and built-in cabinets throughout the house. Now that their youngest, Charlotte, is 11, the family finds they use the

house differently from when it was first finished. On one weekend trip, their oldest, Ethan, 19, brought friends from high school. A separate suite, complete with a small kitchen, above the detached garage allows for more private guest accommodations and is a fun space for Tasia, 17, and Logan, 14, to hang out with friends. Until recently, the house was electronics-free, as the Nashes preferred that the children read or play games together when they were younger. A recently added TV is reserved for video-game use. Eight years ago, Amy never imagined taking a home from start to finish or the amount of effort it would take to get exactly what they wanted. The house, like the family, will probably continue to evolve. Amy acknowledges that she’s always moving furniture around or adding new elements to the décor. “Otherwise, it’s too boring!” she laughs. One thing that won’t change, however, is the special memories they make here with friends and family. The Feagles will be back to visit this summer, and all is well.

ayne English is a retired economist and property investor, but in their second home, he and his wife, Jo Ann, live more like sea captains. The spacious Camano Island house overlooking Utsalady Bay is filled with international treasures and mementos of the sea. And when the water’s siren call is irresistible, they need only step across their lawn and down the hill to reach the bay and their boat moored just offshore. Wayne, who was born in nearby British Columbia, and Jo Ann have long spent summers and holidays on Camano Island. Years ago, they rented a house on the island for a couple of summers and then purchased a new home in Utsalady in 1985. Charmed by the neighborhood’s mix of longtime island residents and vacationers, they started working with H2K Design’s Wendy Kennedy and Garrett Kuhlman and architect Dan Nelson of Designs Northwest Architects on plans for new construction in 2000.

The Englishes asked for a home that was contemporary but also craftsman in style. They wanted the home to be oriented toward the water, with plenty of room to accommodate family and friends. They needed a garage for cars as well as for the boat when they can’t be here. And, though they knew it would have to be a big house, they didn’t want it to overwhelm its surroundings. “We didn’t want to intrude on the neighborhood,” Jo Ann says. “It’s huge (4,800 square feet), but it doesn’t look like it.” Inside, the homeowners wanted to incorporate glass, tile and stone, and they wanted the house to connect them to their travels. Wayne’s favorite thing to do at their vacation home is to hop in the boat—he loves to power over to LaConner for the day or go visit his brother’s place in Coupeville—but Jo Ann’s sense of style drove the interior design of the project. “I always feel there should be one person in charge,” Wayne says. “I generally

deferred to her.” “But he has more garage than I have kitchen,” Jo Ann quips in reply. “With Jo Ann’s love of flora and fauna, the water and glass, we tried to distribute the natural environment throughout the house without it being a cliché—the typical botanicals,” H2K’s Kuhlman explains. Wrapped around a structural column in the living area, a metal shroud crafted by Seattle’s Peter David Studios (see related story, page 18), is embedded with shells and barnacles. A series of framed seaweed prints, reproductions from the British Museum, lines one wall in the living room. At Jo Ann’s request, the designers integrated glass wherever possible. Counter tops in the kitchen prep area and bar, and the tub deck in the master bath are cast glass, also from Peter David Studios; the master-bath shower, transoms and pocket doors throughout the house feature etchedglass panels; and sidelights on either side of the main entry door are made from fused glass. Backsplashes in the master and main-level bathrooms are iridescent glass tile. The home also reflects a love of family and friends, with plenty of space for guests to spread out in relative privacy. The Englishes’ daughter and her family lived in Australia, their son and his family in California, and there’s room for all of them—and more—in Wayne and Jo Ann’s vacation home.

The designers provided room in the house to sleep 14 but created a private second-floor master suite with an adjacent library for Wayne and Jo Ann. The main floor holds the living room, dining room, kitchen and pantry, sunroom, office, a bathroom and a guest room with twin beds. Two more guest rooms, each with a queen-size bed, occupy the lower level, along with a family room (with a billiards table), an exercise room, two baths and a bunk room with beds for four. A year of planning preceded three years of construction and in 2003 they moved in. Now Wayne and Jo Ann enjoy their home in all seasons, with a view of sheltered Utsalady Bay—and Mount Baker, the Skagit Valley, Whidbey Island and beyond—from almost every room. “The house changes between day and night,” Wayne notes, labeling the look “understated elegance.” “It’s very cozy feeling and very warm,” Jo Ann adds. “It’s really pretty from outside and from the water.” Wildlife passes through their yard or on the water: seabirds, herons, ducks, loons, river otters, seals and eagles—plus countless boats. Living like retired sea captains, Wayne and Jo Ann couldn’t be happier in their Utsalady home. For resource information, see Sources, page 78.

onna and Chuck spent 17 years on the water. They first lived together on a 42-foot powerboat moored at Shilshole Bay Marina. Five boats later, though they had expanded their floating home to 85 feet—still at Shilshole—they decided they were ready for solid ground. The property they found for their home on land is less than a mile from their old moorage. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood above the waterfront, the site has a wide-open view over Ray’s Boathouse and the waterway near the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. The couple hoped to capture as much of the view as possible, to minimize noise from an adjacent train track and to build a home they could live in forever—so they wanted at least one floor to be wheelchair-accessible. “We so much wanted a garage. And we wanted big showers,” Donna says. They also wanted a large cooking area and a place to keep their growing wine collection, one of the hazards of owning a wine distribution business for the past 22 years. Donna and Chuck also own a vacation home on San Juan Island, and it was there that they were referred to architect Geoff Prentiss—who also owns an island home. “We felt like we connected, and Geoff sort of understood where we were coming from,” Donna recalls. “We both have places on San Juan Island, we both have houses in Seattle, and we both like to take vacations on boats.” Plus, they liked what they saw of Prentiss’ work. “We were looking for a contemporary house, and we loved all the work he did.” The couple were eager to get started but warned the architect that they couldn’t start building until they sold their boat. So they put the boat up for sale, and Prentiss and his team—project principal Dan Wickline, Michael Peterson and Cheryl Click—started on plans for a modern, SEATTLEHOMESMAG.COM MAY & JUNE 2010

comfortable home with reminders of Chuck and Donna’s life on the water. Light blue Milestone counter tops flow down the sides of the base cabinets and pour across the kitchen floor. Next to the front door is a narrow, rectangular window, a bit like a porthole. Interior walls are white, but reflections from the sky, floors and counter tops make them appear the palest blue. The architect's willingness to use color was another selling point for the homeowners. “We like blue, and Geoff’s not afraid of color,” Donna says. “The clients were partial to blue as a color theme in the house. We worked to incorporate that as a strong design sense without it actually overwhelming the whole house,” Prentiss explains. “So it became a matter of balance, which meant limiting how much and how many blues were used as well as selecting other colors (gray and white) to offset the blues.” Also reminiscent of a life on the water is the walkway from the street to the house. The cedar bridge—“the dock,” accessorized with a metal cleat—crosses a “moat” of various grasses, ferns and native sedges. Structurally, the house is essentially two rectangular volumes set one on top of the other, with the second floor skewed at a 25-degree angle from the main level. The lower box is the kitchen and great room, guest room and bath and two-car garage; the upper box holds an open office, laundry and spacious master suite. Almost every room is oriented toward the water, with huge windows on the main floor and a wall of NanaWall slide-fold doors across the front of the living and dining space.

((MAY & JUNE 2010

“The lower volume parallels the bank and gives maximum exposure to the general view,” Wickline explains. “The top volume, of shorter length, is rotated to better orient the upper volume to the view of the Olympics beyond.” The angle of the upper level also creates room for a roof deck and a green roof on top of the lower level, and it gives the home a covered front entry. Another thing the couple liked about the firm’s designs was how interiors and exteriors work together. “It’s something we saw in a lot of [Prentiss] homes, whether it was a log cabin or a contemporary home,” Donna says. “They really flowed in and out.” The wall of slide-fold doors that opens to the first-floor deck accomplishes this flow in their house. Outside the second-floor office area is a green-roof garden on the triangle created by the juxtaposition of the two boxes. Planted with a variety of sedums, it serves as a colorful foreground to the water view, reduces storm-water runoff and helps moderate heat inside the house. Anchoring the structure is a basement for storage and the mechanical workings of the home. It also holds a 470-square-foot wine cellar, visible from above through a rectangular glass window in the dining room floor. “The two things we probably love the most in this house are the garage and the spacious shower in our master bedroom,” Donna says with a laugh. It’s probably no coincidence that those are two things they couldn’t have on the boat. For resource information, see Sources, page 78.

uropean influence stretches far. This Clyde Hill garden is steeped in classic Italian design—a liberal use of stone, with patterned beds neatly drawn in boxwood—and yet dominated by plants that reveal an eye for color and form reminiscent of a traditional English landscape. Though it’s a continent away from old-world Europe, the garden perfectly suits its three-and-a-half-year-old neoclassical house that is reminiscent of an Italian villa. Most Clyde Hill gardens are designed to face the big picture—Lake Washington— but this landscape turns its eye inward. Landscape architects Ken Philp and Scott Holsapple, from Kenneth Philp Landscape Architects, and the homeowner created an enclosed space around the half-acre-plus garden—but didn’t sacrifice a fine lake prospect, which can be seen from the second-story terrace. “So often, the landscape gives over to the view,” says company principal Philp. “It’s infrequent that a garden holds so much intimacy, and yet you still get the view.” Within an encircling evergreen hedge, the landscape comprises space for activity and entertaining, as well as beauty, so there’s something to suit the entire family: a swimming pool, an outdoor chessboard set in patio pavers, secret hideaways, flowers, food and fragrance, all formally presented. In the tradition of grand European gardens, all the important design elements are here, including a generous entry, boldly flanked by stone lions, and beds lined with low, clipped evergreen plants. Two white wisterias grow as standards in the entry court. Their treelike form requires careful and ruthless pruning, but the reward of cascading, fragrant white flowers in late spring makes the attention to detail worthwhile. That careful observation, so important in formal garden design, carries through all the choices of plant and place. The corners of the wisteria beds before the front door bloom with hellebores in winter and lily-of-the-Nile (Agapanthus) in summer. The blue and white floral spheres of agapanthus are an accent to the overall color scheme the homeowner chose for the front landscape of peach and apricot, especially evident in roses such as ‘Shropshire Lad’ and ‘Sombreuil.’ Those shades segue into the pale stone of the house and reflect in the beige-toned marble (called cedar brown) of the 30-foot-long fountain that sits across from the front door. The garden exemplifies a continual collaboration between the homeowner, Philp and Holsapple, who served as project manager. The homeowner’s love and knowledge of plants and design, gained through both travel and research, are evident. “My husband jokes that if I buy another garden book, the house will begin to tilt,” she says. The garden looks older than its years, because many particularly fine plants were dug and held off-site during the house construction. A dogwood, Japanese maples and two winter-blooming camellias, the latter now trellised on either side of the

front door, are among the plants that returned to give the new garden age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do like to move my plants around,â&#x20AC;? the owner says. Plants selected for ďŹ&#x201A;ower and form soften the precise deďŹ nition of a classic landscape. The homeowner, a keen plantswoman, chose abundantly and well when ďŹ lling the garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of my six children will accompany me to a nursery,â&#x20AC;? she says of her frequent shopping trips. Set against the formality of the garden are the grottos, which surprise and delight. Stairs near the pool, set amid a calm green lawn behind the house, descend rough, bold granite walls to a fountain just outside the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small, hidden space,â&#x20AC;? the homeowner says of the seating area and water feature with an ornate concrete pillar and urns dripping with water. Every Italian garden has a grotto, and the hard stone surfaces of this one appropriately echo the dripping water; moss just starting to grow on the column gives the grotto its requisite ancient appearance. On the north side of the house, simulated granite holds back the hillside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a retaining wall,â&#x20AC;? Holsapple says of the enormous carved rock face, created by Turnstone Construction Shop. Rough stone steps lead down to the spa grotto. The simulated-granite walls beside the path are dotted with planting pockets, where specialty plants, such as a corkscrew hazel, grow. Water weeps from the rock face of the spa grotto and cascades down a recess in the boulders. The hot tub, sheltered under the walkway above, stays secret while the rest of the patio opens to the sky; the ďŹ&#x201A;oor of the patio is laid with a chessboard in stone pavers. The beauty of the garden lies in its ornaments as well as its usefulness. Raspberries grow along the driveway; a potager, full of herbs, fruit and summer vegetables, is only steps from the kitchen door; two bay trees, grown as standards, ďŹ&#x201A;ank the gate that divides the kitchen garden from the front landscape at the northwest corner. A pomegranateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;barely hardy in the Puget Sound regionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;basks in the heat and light against a southwest-facing wall where it not only ďŹ&#x201A;owers but also sets fruit. Above the pool in back, the homeowner keeps her cutting garden. From the cutting garden to the grottos, the homeowner and landscape architects worked together as they created the design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project was the most collaborative and vision-driven by a client,â&#x20AC;? Philp says, but the homeowner gives credit to the formal garden style when she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the classical design sense that really lets the garden come together.â&#x20AC;?

WHEN THE OWNERS OF THIS CAPITOL HILL RESIDENCE moved in, they were already familiar with its history and character. The 1905 home had been in the wife’s family for years and was much beloved but needed updating for a modern family of four. THE SOLUTION: To modernize—but not destroy—the home’s 1905 charm, the owners called on The Johnson Partnership. “Our biggest design directive was to make the kitchen bigger and more comfortable while integrating the design with the house and preserving its historic feel,” says project manager Ellen Mirro. The family loves to read, and the kitchen needed more storage, so the architects added bookshelves as well as new cabinets. With the help of Todd Warmington, custom cabinets were built to replicate the existing ones. “When I was growing

up, I remember my dad finding the historic cabinets in the garage and hanging them up,” the wife says. Though the owners could not find a match for the existing red linoleum, their second choice—reclaimed French tile— reminded them of their time living in France. The new French oven was also a tribute to the old room, which once housed an industrial stove. They updated the existing pantry and expanded the room with an eating nook. “It feels much more open,” the wife says of the new kitchen. “Just the other day, we hosted a birthday party for family. We could fit everyone in.”

KEEPING IT CONTAINED Husband-and-wife team Jay and Dixie Stark of DA Stark Interiors created a unique retail and office space composed entirely out of reused cargo shipping containers—the first of its kind in the Seattle area. Dixie Stark Home came to fruition with help and guidance from Jay Fogarty of Fogarty Construction and structural engineer Greg Coons of Swenson Say Faget. “The walls of the containers were left exposed for juxtaposition between soft and elegantly tailored furnishings and corrugated industrial walls,” Jay Stark explains.

WRITTEN BY RACHEL GALLAHER

DON’T LET ITS SIZE FOOL YOU: The Leschi neighborhood holds its own when compared to larger areas nearby. Leschi offers residents sweeping views of Lake Washington, a diverse population and ample opportunities for various outdoor sports. At 0.36 square mile, Leschi holds 856 single-family homes, and the neighborhood’s eclectic mix of real estate gives it a lot of character. “Leschi has a wide spectrum of ages and styles of homes, including craftsman, tudor, colonial, midcentury and Northwest contemporary,” notes Coldwell Banker Bain real estate agent Karen Freeman. “The type of housing is so varied, the demographic moving into the area reflects the diversity.” Located three miles east of Pioneer Square, Leschi draws people from nearby downtown Seattle. Named after a local Nisqually chief, Leschi has a history dating back centuries—to when it served as a seasonal Duwamish tribe settlement. By the 1890s, Leschi Park and the lakefront served as a vacation and leisure destination for local European settlers. As the neighborhood continued to develop, people started to move here and call Leschi their home. Today, the Leschi waterfront still draws outdoor-activity seekers, and two parks—Leschi Park and Frink Park—provide plenty of space in which to play. “[Leschi is] an active residential community with a large number of homes that have amazing views of Lake Washington. It’s surrounded by parks, marinas, water sports, cafes and wonderful routes for bicyclists, runners and walkers,” Freeman says. But outdoor sports aren’t the only draw. Leschi holds two small business cores. The area along Lakeside Avenue South is home to Leschi Market, a gym and restaurants such as Daniel’s Broiler, BluWater Bistro and Ruby Asian Dining. A smaller commercial area on the Leschi–Mount Baker Ridge at 31st Avenue offers a spa, financial offices, a pet store and the Re-Past Bakery and Café. Even with its laid-back, suburban vibe, Leschi is just a 10-minute drive from the bustling activity of downtown Seattle, and its proximity to the Interstate-90 floating bridge allows for easy access to the Eastside. Leschi’s architectural medley and diversity of residents make this waterfront enclave perfect for urban-minded neighborhood living.
