and that’s why Seattle Homes & Lifestyles is excited to be a sponsor of the 2011 Tour of Architects. The two-day tour features projects on Bainbridge Island (March 19) and in the greater Seattle area (March 20). If you’d like a sneak peek at what the tour will include, turn to page 50, where we feature a Mercer Island midcentury-modern remodel that will be part of the Seattle tour. Turn to Details (page 76) for a glimpse at one of the homes on the Bainbridge tour. In this issue, we also feature a young traditional home in Medina (page 42), a modern home overlooking Gamble Bay, on the Kitsap Peninsula (page 62), and a landscape design that complements the surrounding Skagit Valley farmland in Mount Vernon (page 56). Also between the covers of this issue: Market Editor Stacy Kendall talks to four local interior designers about their favorite colors for the year ahead in Style (page 26), and we reflect on some beautiful new mirrored home décor products in Trend (page 32). Our At the Table stories (page 36) include an excerpt from Becky Selengut’s forthcoming cookbook, Good Fish: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast, and seasonal wine recommendations from the wine director at Seattle’s Purple Café and Wine Bar. Right Now (page 96) is all about our favorite colors this year. We hope this issue gives you plenty of ideas for spring projects of your own.

THERE’S A TAG FOR THAT In this issue, SH&L introduces a new feature especially for smart-phone users. The 1-inch-square black-and-white graphics (like the one at left) are called webtags (otherwise known as mobile tags or QR-Codes), and you’ll find them on some of our articles and advertisements. Each webtag is a custom bar code that links to a URL, and they work on devices such as the iPhone, BlackBerry or any web-enabled phone. So webtags are printed direct links—like a URL—but you don’t have to type them into your computer or phone. Instead, go to mobiletag.com/en to download the tag reader on your smart phone, then use the camera

lens as a scanner to read the code in the graphic. This activates the phone’s Internet browser and opens a custom URL on your phone screen. Try this: Hold your smart phone over the page and scan the webtag at left. Your phone should open our Seattle Homes & Lifestyles magazine home page. As you read this issue of the magazine, you’ll find these tags on some of the pages. Try scanning the webtags to see online versions of the stories or to get more information from our participating advertisers. Like Facebook and Twitter, webtags further blur the line between print and online, making it even easier for us to interact with you.

BECKY SELENGUTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GOOD FISH RULES

EXCERPTED FROM THE FORTHCOMING COOKBOOK BY BECKY SELENGUT, WITH PHOTOGRAPHS BY CLARE BARBOZA

â&#x20AC;&#x153;GOOD FISHâ&#x20AC;? IS SEAFOOD FROM A FISHERY THAT IS WELL MANAGED; it is ďŹ shed or farmed in such a way as to protect the environment. It is low in mercury and persistent organic pollutants (POPs), healthy and absolutely delicious. Many factors are considered in determining which ďŹ sheries are sustainable, including the type of gear used to harvest ďŹ sh, the relative abundance of the species, the amount of accidental bycatch of nontarget species, and the safety of the waters from which the ďŹ sh are harvested. The plot in this evolving story hinges on the health of our oceans and the sustainability of our ďŹ sh. You, the consumer, are the protagonist. The most important thing you can do is ask questions. With each type of seafood included in my new cookbook, I pose questions you might ask your ďŹ shmongers in order to be sure you are purchasing seafood that is healthy for you and your family as well as for our oceans. This book isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about what you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a celebration of what you can do. Eat these ďŹ sh with joy, share these recipes with your favorite people, and know that you are actively doing your part to ensure that seafood survivesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and, perhaps someday soon, thrives again. The book is divided into sections by seafood type, with ďŹ ve recipes for

each kind of seafood, in addition to information about when it is in season, what to look for when buying and tips on caring for your ďŹ sh. THE FIRST SIGN OF SPRING ON THE PACIFIC COAST is when fresh halibut starts appearing in the markets. Though halibut is in season March through November, frozen halibut is usually available year-round. A halibut starts its life as a round ďŹ sh with an eye on either side of its head, as you might expect. By the time it is six months old, however, the halibut has settled down to the bottom of the ocean and made a transition to life as a ďŹ&#x201A;atďŹ sh. Monterey Bay Aquariumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Watch lists PaciďŹ c halibut as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Choice.â&#x20AC;? U.S. North PaciďŹ c halibut is also certiďŹ ed as a sustainable ďŹ shery by the Marine Stewardship Council. This ďŹ shery is recognized as one of the best managed in the world, according to many leading ďŹ sheries specialists, and has a long history, dating back to the early 20th century. ;ccX:]g\.GighU]bUV`YGYUZccXFYW]dYgZfcah\YDUW]Ă&#x2030;W7cUghAOa_cObQV0]]Ya ''# eWZZPSW\P]]Yab]`Sa;Og 0SQYÂĄASZS\UcbWaOQVSTe`WbS`PZ]UUS`1VST@SW\dS\bSRQ][Q]]YW\U W\ab`cQb]`O\RT]c\RS`]TbVSaSOa]\OZZ]QOZT]]RaRObOPOaSASOa]\OZ1]`\cQ]^WOQ][

2 jalapeĂąos, seeds and membranes removed from 1â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or both, if you want less heat 2 stalks lemongrass, woody top half discarded, chopped ½ cup roughly chopped shallots Âź cup cilantro stems 1 clove garlic 2 tablespoons chopped fresh galangal or gingerroot 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, ground in a spice grinder 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, ground in a spice grinder Âź teaspoon salt Âź teaspoon dried turmeric, or 1 teaspoon grated fresh turmeric 5 KaďŹ&#x192;r lime leaves,* or zest of 2 limes (about 2 teaspoons) *KaďŹ&#x192;r lime leaves are sold fresh in Asian markets.

Chicken or vegetable stock or water 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk 1 tablespoon ďŹ sh sauce ½ pound halibut ďŹ llet, skinned and cut into 1-inch cubes Black sesame seeds, for garnish (optional) Topping: 1 teaspoon vegetable oil 4 Fresno chiles, seeded and minced 2 tablespoons minced red onion ď&#x2122;˘/ď&#x2122;&#x2DC; cup chopped cilantro leaves 2 limes, peeled and ďŹ&#x201A;esh cut into small dice Salt

1: Add the jalapeĂąos, lemongrass, shallots, cilantro stems, garlic, galangal or gingerroot, coriander, cumin, salt, turmeric and one of the KaďŹ&#x192;r lime leaves to the bowl of a food processor and blend, using up to Âź cup chicken stock to help the mixture process into a smooth purĂŠe.

Place a spoonful on top of each serving of curried halibut. Wine pairing: A German Riesling, such as Joh. Jos. ChristoďŹ&#x20AC;el

Erben, an Ă&#x153;rziger Wurzgarten, a 2006 Spätlese, a Moselle or an Alsatian GewĂźrztraminer. Sustainable substitutes: Halibut is a ďŹ rm yet delicate ďŹ sh, meaty and mild tasting; some say it is a steak in ďŹ sh form. A substitute for halibut would be Alaska PaciďŹ c cod.

CHRIS HORN CAUGHT THE WINE BUG after college, while busing tables at an Italian restaurant in the University District. Each night at the end of the shift, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d relax with a plate of food and glasses of wine. He remembers thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man, I have to make this my life.â&#x20AC;? From there, he waited tables at Saltyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Alki and was able to meet and learn from esteemed sommelier Tim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. A few years later, Horn joined Wild Ginger as wine and service captain before becoming assistant wine director and lead sommelier. He joined Purple CafĂŠ and Wine Barâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seattle location as wine director in 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing about my job is that I have at least 100 bottles of wine open every day,â&#x20AC;? Horn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was given the opportunity to build a wine program from the ground up, and as we approach our ďŹ ve-year anniversary, I believe we have assembled one of the most interesting and dynamic wine lists in the state.â&#x20AC;? When it comes to choosing a selection of his favorite Northwest wines for spring, Horn opts for lighter reds and aromatic whites that pair well with fresh ďŹ sh, fruits and vegetables.

ach perfect relationship begins in its own way: a chance meeting, a blind date, a friendship that grows into something more. For interior designer Graciela Rutkowski and her Medina clients, it started about ďŹ ve years ago with a mutual friend and a phone call. The homeowners had just ďŹ nished building a new house and were looking for someone to help them ďŹ nish the interiors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used several designers in the past, and my husband has been like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nope, next one,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? the wife explains. A mutual friend got wind of their dilemma and gave them Rutkowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a ringing endorsement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best.â&#x20AC;? One phone conversation later, the designer was on her way to Medina for a ďŹ rst meeting. The connection was instant. Rutkowski thought her clients were â&#x20AC;&#x153;lovely, sweet and graciousâ&#x20AC;? and saw that the home had beautiful bones and great potential. The homeowners appreciated Rutkowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention to detail and sense of style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has this perfect balance, and it spoke to both of us,â&#x20AC;? the wife says. They decided to take it slow, working on the home one room at a time. First up was the eat-in kitchen area: the heart of the house, where the homeowners share family meals, entertain and help their two daughters with art projects. Rutkowski took into account their love of a reďŹ ned-yet-casual look. She also heeded their request for comfortable, functional and child-friendly pieces. After the design choices for the eating area were discussed and ďŹ nalized, the homeowners headed to Hawaii for a planned family vacation and Rutkowski started working on the installation. When the family returned, the space had been transformed. Rutkowski had added a wood trestle table that easily accommodates six, as well as comfortable seating in the form of open-back chairs, upholstered armchairs and an easy-to-clean white sofa to keep things elegant but relaxed. Lighthearted orange gourd lamps and trellis-patterned citrine curtains frame the window looking out to the backyard.

“My husband said she is like the Four Seasons of decorating,” the wife says of Rutkowski and her special touches. “She had the most beautiful flowers and champagne out. It’s first class. She makes it really personal, and she adds that extra boost of service.” Over the next four-plus years, Rutkowski and the homeowners worked their way through the rest of the home. And as in every successful longterm relationship, they collaborated and compromised along the way. It took Rutkowski and the homeowners nearly a year to discuss and choose the design for the dining chairs, for example. The husband, who Rutkowski jokes should have been an architect because of his great eye, was all about the details. Rutkowski recalls debating the wood finish (whitewash with gold trim or entirely gold leaf ), the cushions (she brought in three versions for sit tests), the fabric (options were stain-tested in Rutkowski’s office) and the embellishments (two different rosettes were made for comparison) before finally picking a winning combination. “He put me through my paces,” Rutkowski says with a laugh. “He made me a better designer.” Throughout the rest of the home, the steady designer-client relationship has produced beautiful results. In the family room, Rutkowski redesigned the built-ins around the fireplace and added wall-to-wall chocolate brown carpeting in a square-trellis design. Playful patterned pillows give the neutral-colored seating some extra life, while a pair of leopard-print armchairs and matching dog bed for Jack Russell terrier Max show the designer (and, by extension, the homeowners) isn’t afraid to take some risks. In the kitchen, Rutkowski scaled down the island to better fit the size of

the space, added honed Calcutta carrara marble counter tops and painted the cabinets a fresh white. Orange leather barstools with nail-head trim tie in to the eating area’s orange accents. The house also has a personalized space for each family member. Rutkowski decorated the wife’s home office in hot pink and black. She added a zebra-print area rug and a black lacquer chair for a touch of glam and three wall-mounted memo boards for displaying pictures and cards. Upstairs, the husband’s office features dark walls and built-in cabinets, with a comfy leather chair for reading. Max also has his own giraffe-patterned dog bed on the floor here, too. In the playroom, Rutkowski gave each daughter her own desk space and pink lacquer chair for doing homework. A custom mural by Roxanne Murphy-Smith depicts an imaginary scene in Paris, which the family often visits in real life. The painting includes the family’s favorite shops and even miniature versions of the girls and Max. As the project nears its end—the master bedroom was just finished earlier this year, and Rutkowski plans to work on an outdoor seating area next—there are hints this close designer-client relationship will continue in a different way. “I really have gotten to know them as people,” Rutkowski says. “They’ve become really good friends, and I’m lucky to have gotten to work with them.” The feeling is mutual. “She’s our friend, and she’s just a lovely, wonderful person,” the wife adds. “We’re so glad that we found her.” For resource information, see Sources, page 94.

uring their new-home hunt, Bill Bunker and Joanne Kennedy toured a midcentury-modern residence on Mercer Island. They sensed immediately that it was the one. “We made an offer on this home the day that it came on the market,”Joanne says. Having lived in several traditional-style residences around the Seattle area, the couple knew exactly what they wanted. “We [were looking for] a dated 1950s or 1960s ranch that needed some love,” she explains. Though she was trained as an architect, Joanne found that between raising two young daughters and working at her job in marketing, she had little time to draw plans for the remodel. After several years of putting ideas on the back burner, the couple was ready to pass the work on to another expert. Enter Coop 15’s Lane Williams, a Seattle architect who had previously designed a project for the couple’s Mercer Island neighbor. Williams found working with Joanne a collaborative process, rather than a struggle for the pencil. “Working with another architect on the project really

made our work easier, because we were dealing with her ability to make decisions and understand the thinking behind the design,” he says. “Joanne was always very open to our ideas and contributed as we went along.” Joanne agrees, as her intention was not to interfere. “The best architecture comes when an architect is able to see their vision through,” she says. Bill was equally active as a participant, Williams says, “which is something we always hope for when we are working with couples.” The home, originally designed by Northwest architect Leo L. Fischer, was ready for updates to make it more livable and family friendly. The main living areas of the house were cramped and isolated from one another, and the finishes and fixtures were outdated. Supported by Coop 15 project manager Trevor Dykstra and collaborating with contractor Joe McKinstry of the Joseph McKinstry Construction Company, Williams worked to maintain the character of the existing structure while creating a more modern and comfortable home. “There’s a fine line when you are trying to respect the best qualities of the original architecture,” Williams says. “There were some modifications made, but it’s still in the style of the original, a style that is very deeply rooted in the midcentury work being done in the Pacific Northwest at that time.” Joanne and Bill’s goals for the remodel were similar: “We wanted to retain the spirit of the ’60s house but wanted to really refresh it and make it more comfortable,” Joanne says. Several structural elements were changed. Coop 15’s design altered the gabled roofline of the garage to make the entry more welcoming and enclosed an existing courtyard between the garage and the house to create a family room. Williams and his team also removed the interior walls

that separated the main-floor living areas to create a better flow between rooms. The main-floor bedrooms were made more private by adding a pocket door in the hall, and the bathrooms were reconfigured to optimize the existing space. Additionally, the original wall of windows along the back of the house was fitted with new energy-efficient windows and two large sliding doors that access the dining and living rooms. This combination allows an abundance of natural light to shine in the living areas, while bringing the outside in during the summer months. “[The sliding doors] open up the backyard to us,” Joanne says. “It’s so nice to hear the sounds from outside.” An existing narrow deck that runs along the living and dining rooms was modified to add steps down to a new stone-paved terrace for outdoor entertaining. “It makes access to the backyard more gracious,” Williams says. The existing kitchen was cramped and isolated from the rest of the house—“a classic one-person 1960s kitchen,” Joanne says. The homeowners longed for an open kitchen where they could still feel connected to family and guests. The U-shaped room now provides plenty of space for two cooks to work simultaneously, as well as ample storage in the walnut cabinetry. Just off the kitchen is a new family/project room where Allison, 10, and Sarah, 7, can do homework and remain close to the heart of the home. Keeping with the couple’s original intentions, the new layout encourages unity and conversation, rather than isolating family members from one another. Each living area flows into the next with ease. “We love having the everyday spaces. The kids love it, and they have a place where they can just be,” Joanne says. “We feel like we’re all here together.” For resource information, see Sources, page 94.

THE LANDSCAPE NEAREST TO THE HOUSE IS FORMAL WITH GEOMETRIC SHAPES AND STRAIGHT PATHS, BUT JUST OUTSIDE THE OPENWORK FENCE, THE DESIGN SOFTENS WITH A GRAVEL PATH THAT CURVES AROUND THE FRONT GARDEN.

A NEW HOME AND LANDSCAPE DESIGN BLEND SEAMLESSLY INTO THE SURROUNDING SKAGIT VALLEY FARMLANDS

T

he iconic landscape of the Skagit Valley—wide-open farmland framed in conifer-covered hills rising to the Cascade Range—is to be celebrated, admired and enjoyed. So felt Pat and Richard Smith, longtime residents of the area, and that’s what they wanted in a home and garden on 1.25 acres in Mount Vernon. They communicated this desire to landscape architect R. Scott Lankford and architect Dan Nelson, principal, of Designs Northwest Architects when they brought them in to design the project. “I knew I wanted the house to be accessible to the garden,” Pat says. “I love being outside.” The result is an appealing, eclectic mix of materials, plants and styles. “There’s a hierarchy of spaces,” Lankford says, describing the change from formal design close to the house to the greater environment of potato and wheat fields. Near the entry, Mexican feather grass, long-flowering potentilla and hardy geraniums grow. The curving path around the east side of the house turns a walk into a stroll. “I wanted it more casual,” Pat says. It’s a mark of how the formality begins to lessen. “The landscape

deconstructs as it moves out into farmland,” Lankford explains. The Smiths, Lankford and Nelson began the process in 2007 with a walk around the property the Smiths had purchased four years earlier. “It’s nice to do architecture and landscape design together,” Nelson says. “We do a lot of sketching, a lot of visualization with our clients. It’s amazing how close the first sketch we did here was to the finished project.” The old farmhouse on the site was not salvageable, and “it didn’t sit right on the lot,” Pat says. “We wanted to take advantage of the most light.” The existing milk barn was kept and remodeled; now it’s the entertainment area, a place for gatherings. For the new house and garden— the developed area now takes up just under an acre, with the landscape a quarter acre—some basic adjustments needed to be made. The site was uneven, with depressions that stayed wet throughout the rainy season, so landscape contractor Western Gardens built a huge berm 2½ feet high using surrounding farm soil, upon which the house, garage and garden now sit. Lankford planned the gravel path that circles the house just outside the fence to accommodate changes in the soil, which swells when saturated and shrinks when dry. He created a

subgrade, layered floating system with geotextile fabric over compacted crushed rock, allowing for the soil to change size without moving the surface path, which is topped with local dark basalt gravel framed by pavers. A low, openwork fence around the house and formal entry surrounds and divides the space without obstructing the views as it marks the easing of formal style into fields and natural landscape. Lankford sited elements to draw the eye to specific views. The line from the entry courtyard looking west passes through the trellis, along a breezeway between the house and garage and down the walk past the milk barn to an old water tower on a neighbor’s property. The breezeway itself harkens to a time when a family’s comfort could be controlled by manipulating the elements instead of flipping a switch on climate control. Situated between the house and garage, the large sliding doors, which open to 8 feet, can close to shelter the front patio from the prevailing southeast winds that start up most afternoons. Slide the door open between the back patio and the cherry-tree courtyard, and the entertaining area is enlarged, reinforcing the sense of wide-open spaces that the farmland produces. Dual purposes show up in both home and landscape. Nelson designed a cupola above the family room; it’s an architectural whimsy that adds character to the building, but it also allows natural light into the center of the room, which would be much darker without it. In the entry garden,

Lankford incorporated a formal rectangular fountain—which began its life as a water trough for the dairy herd. The landscape never overwhelms; even at maturity, the garden will not outgrow the house or obstruct the view of Mount Baker to the northeast or fields to the south. The sense that the home and garden grew up together is a mark of the collaboration among the Smiths, Nelson and Lankford. In some places, the distinguishing lines between the house and garden almost vanish. Large windows invite in the view, and wide French doors open onto the back patio, doubling the size of livable space. A few plants retained from the previous landscape, including a 60-year-old cherry tree in front and a Japanese stewartia in back, hold pride of place and can be admired from indoors or out. Those trees now anchor younger plantings in a landscape that Lankford designed to be multilayered with interest throughout the year, including winter-blooming hellebores in the shade garden, fragrant viburnums in spring, coneflowers and black-eyed Susans in summer and colorful October Glory maples that line the access drive in fall. A rich mix of plants adds depth to the landscape, contributing to the farmhouse atmosphere and retaining the sense of history and continuity of the region. “In our old house,” Pat says, “I felt separated from the outside. Now I feel like I’m outside even when I’m in.” For resource information, see Sources, page 94.

SEATTLEITES SEEKING AN ESCAPE FROM THE CITY FIND THEIR IDYLL ON THE KITSAP PENINSULA

–

ometime in 2002, Jeff Harrison and Matt Sikes first started thinking about getting a vacation home. They had recently finished a major remodel on their north Capitol Hill house and completed both the front and back landscaping, so they were ready for a new design challenge. Their top priority was that a second home needed to be close enough to the city that they would use it regularly. They wanted a place that would let them escape the stress of corporate life—Matt works in finance and Jeff in IT—instead of increasing it with a long drive in traffic. So they drew a circle on the map around Seattle that represented approximately 90 minutes’ travel time and decided to look only inside that boundary. A year and a half later, in May 2004, Jeff stumbled—online—across a piece of property overlooking Gamble Bay, on the Kitsap Peninsula. It met their distance requirements, and the price was right. That weekend, he and Matt asked their realtor to drive out with them to take a look at it, and they liked what they saw. The 0.65-acre property sat on a treed bluff overlooking the bay, less than 15 minutes from the Kingston ferry dock.

To design a home for their perfectly situated lot, they approached architect Ben Trogdon, of Ben Trogdon Architects, with whom they had worked on the remodel of their primary home. Working with Trogdon and the firm’s Jamie Meyers, Matt and Jeff decided on what Matt calls “a glass box” that would sit near the edge of the bluff. The 1,600-square-foot house consists of two rectangular volumes that intersect at a right angle. Glass-and-aluminum garage doors along the western side of Matt’s “glass box” roll up to open the main living area to breezes off Gamble Bay, and French doors swing open on the south side of this volume to a dining terrace. Wider and shallower, the second box has wood siding and contains the master bedroom and bath at one end, and a guest bedroom at the other end—all with windows that open to the view. A wooden barn-style door slides across the entry porch for privacy, and a loft above the kitchen provides extra space. Getting permits, drilling the well and completing other pre-construction tasks ultimately took more than two years. Finally, construction was progressing on schedule when a surprise career opportunity changed their plans. Matt, then an executive at Starbucks’ Seattle headquarters, was

offered a leadership position with the company’s Europe/Middle East/ Africa division—which meant moving to Amsterdam. Ultimately, it was too interesting an offer to refuse. Matt flew to the Netherlands to begin work in May 2007 and Jeff stayed behind for a month to organize the move—and finish the Gamble Bay house. The initial architectural design was done by Trogdon and his staff, but most of the furnishings and finishes were chosen by the homeowners. For consultation on finishing touches, Matt and Jeff turned to the late Jan Sewell, of Jan Sewell Design. “Jan had helped us with the colors in our Capitol Hill house in Seattle through several renovation projects, and we loved the way she could bring warmth and beauty to ‘gray’ Seattle,” Matt recalls. “Once the house was framed in late 2006, Jan helped with design and color. We spent one afternoon choosing colors for the entire house, room by room.” The trio chose Sewell’s favorite color—Ralph Lauren’s Raffia—for the

**MAR. & APR. 2011

bedrooms and hall, which was also the foundational color in Matt and Jeff’s Seattle home. “It’s a great, warm greenish-khaki color that can change depending on the light,” Matt explains. They chose dark gray for the main living area and kitchen to “bring in a little drama” and to complement the outside/inside siding. “A few other colors were thrown in for contrast, and, once again, we knew Jan’s pitch-perfect eye for color had nailed what the house needed,” he adds. Sewell’s sudden death in late 2010 was an emotional blow for the far-away homeowners, but her vision lives on in their Port Gamble escape. In addition to helping with paint colors, she encouraged Matt and Jeff to choose two different types of granite for the kitchen counter tops. They used Wine River on the east-facing counter and a matte-finished Absolute Black anticato on the island. “Jan gave us confidence to mix the two granites while throwing in a colorful glass tile backsplash that brought the two together,” Matt recalls.


To create their low-maintenance landscape plan, the couple called on Kingston landscape designer Shayne Chandler. Matt and Jeff tore pages out of magazines that had the look and feel they wanted and gave them to Chandler with a request to “make it feel like we’re on the water,” Jeff recalls. The designer took that idea and ran with it, creating a metal grid “dock”—anchored by wooden pilings—that pushes out into the garden. Around the dock, he planted silvery Elymus magellanicus, Leptospermum lanigerum ‘Silver Form,’ hebes and euphorbia. “I wanted to use a lot of drought-tolerant plants to create the beach feel on the water side of the house,” Chandler says. In a northwest corner, where the living room meets the guest bedroom, he designed a peaceful rock garden to be viewed from inside. “That’s one of the few shady spots,” Chandler notes. “I wanted to enclose it and make sure there was interest close up.” Here, he placed rhododendrons and ferns among boulders with shallow indentations to catch rainwater.

DESPITE MATT AND JEFF’S BESTLAID PLANS to create a weekend escape less than 90 minutes from their Seattle home, they now have a beautiful vacation home approximately 15 hours from their primary residence outside Amsterdam. But it’s still an idyllic location where they can enjoy the best of the Northwest, and escape the stresses of everyday life. For resource information, see Sources, page 94.

THE NORTHWEST DESIGN AWARDS, Seattle Design Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual design competition, rewards design excellence in 10 categories. Continuing a tradition started last year, Seattle Homes & Lifestyles annually presents a Publisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award to one of the ďŹ rst-place-winning projects. This year, the Publisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award goes to Seattle interior designer Steven Hensel, of Hensel Design Studios, for a whole-house remodel he designed for a client in Big Sur, California. The project earned Hensel another ďŹ rst-place Northwest Design Award (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won more than 15 NWDAs in the past decade) in the Whole House $400,000 and More category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm, inviting and elegant, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of place where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want to go and relax,â&#x20AC;? says SH&L publisher Cathy Fitzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It draws you in.â&#x20AC;? The 3,000-square-foot midcentury home is cantilevered on a cliďŹ&#x20AC; 600 feet above the PaciďŹ c Ocean and has stunning territorial views. Hensel came on board to revive the houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tired interiors while still making the beauty of the outdoors the main focus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to respect its history while providing more comfort,â&#x20AC;? Hensel explains of his design goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[We] quietly designed furnishings [with a] nod to the era while upgrading the level of comfort, quality and luxury.â&#x20AC;? Hensel opted for a muted color palette so as not to detract from the views, and he looked to the site itself for design inspiration. Lyptus wood is used throughout, while stone and glass repeat in various spaces. Dramatic ďŹ&#x201A;oor-to-ceiling windows oďŹ&#x20AC;er sweeping views of the oceanside cliďŹ&#x20AC;s beyond. The result is a welcoming home with enviable views, reďŹ ned taste and timeless style.

hen Capitol Hill homeowner Elsa Rosenkrantz decided it was time for a little luxury, she embarked on a project to remodel the interior of her early 20th-century Dutch colonial revival–style home. One of the major changes was the addition of a master bathroom on the second floor, but finding a way to maintain the classic style of the house while creating a modern addition proved to be a challenge. “I wanted it to still feel like a 100-year-old house without functioning like a 100-year-old house,” Elsa says. THE SOLUTION: The homeowner asked Cathy Gaspar of Gaspar’s to turn her vision into a reality. Consolidating an existing office, water closet and storage room created space for the new bath and walk-in closet. To give the

BEDROOM BATHROOM CLOSET HALLWAY bathroom adequate ceiling height, they increased the size of a dormer that links the bath to the master bedroom. “We were really careful not to make it look like a modern addition,” Gaspar explains. To avoid an overtly modern sensibility, Gaspar lined the shower and lower wall behind the vanity with crisp white subway tile, which fits the home’s classic style. The rest of the walls are painted in an earthy oak color that contrasts with the white tile and provides a neutral backdrop for the rest of the room. A large vessel sink atop the custom wood vanity adds to the room’s timeless feel. The new bathroom, Elsa says, blends perfectly with the rest of her home. “It has a soothing, spa-like ambience,” she says. “I love it.”

<=GHCF=7<5J9B WRITTEN BY JUSTINE ARMEN

BRITISHď&#x161;şBORN STEEL ENTREPRENEUR PETER KIRK came to the Northwest in the 1880s in hopes of establishing a successful steel industry here. The stock market crash of 1893 dampened Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook, but the economy boomed due to other lucrative local industries. In 1892, Washington stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst wool mill was established in Kirkland, supplying wool products to Alaska gold rush prospectors, as well as to the U.S. military during World War I. Kirklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake Washington shipyard also thrived, building warships for the U.S. Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least 25 World War II warships were constructed at what is now Carillon Point between 1917 and 1940. Since then, Kirklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy and population have continued to grow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a huge number of people who have never moved [away] from Kirkland,â&#x20AC;? says Mayor Joan McBride, who has lived in the city for 50 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Kirkland, you tend to stay here.â&#x20AC;? Windermere broker Lynly Callaway notes that Kirkland was aďŹ&#x20AC;ected by the down economy, but not to the extent that other areas of King County were. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The silver lining is that for people who have wanted to live in Kirkland but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t previously aďŹ&#x20AC;ord it, the decline in prices combined with extremely low interest rates â&#x20AC;Ś make this an amazing time to purchase a home,â&#x20AC;? she says. Since the late 19th century, Kirkland has accommodated residents with a large number of job opportunities and housing options. With a little

more than 11 square miles of land and a beautiful lakefront setting, the geography of Kirkland oďŹ&#x20AC;ers an array of natural backdrops in which residents can immerse themselves while walking or biking to work. Despite being the 18th largest city in the state, Kirkland has maintained a smalltown feeling. In her years living in Kirkland, McBride notes a high quality of community involvement within the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighborhoods, which she describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazingly vibrant.â&#x20AC;? Kirklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical footing, reputable community and magniďŹ cent landscape make it an alluring place to retire or start anew.
