Because the focus of Seattle Homes & Lifestyles is home design and décor, we do not often hire models for our photo shoots—though we do love to show homeowners in their residences. But when we decided to feature stylish nursery décor in this issue’s Style column (“Baby Love,” page 18), we knew the picture wouldn’t be complete without a model. And of course she stole the show. The 9-month-old daughter of our studio photographer, Hank Drew, Mia was accompanied to the photo shoot by her personal assistant (mom Lara). She displayed none of the diva characteristics that models are reputed to have and tolerated direction (and silly faces) from the photographer very well, even while being held by a complete stranger (shown here). Also in this issue, we spotlight an elegant Queen Anne remodel (page 32), a Yarrow Point house redesigned for a family’s changing needs (page 38) and a landscape designer’s own Kirkland garden (page 44). Our regular departments include stories about a local artist and rug designer (Talent, page 26), the favorite products of staff and designers in this issue (Right Now, page 80), stocking an Urban Pantry (At the Table, page 28), a Bainbridge Island kitchen remodel (Before & After, page 52), Bellevue real estate (page 70) and more. We hope you enjoy this issue and that you’re also following SH&L online and through social media. We’ve found that our Design Dish blog (blog.seattlehomesmag.com) and our pages on Twitter and Facebook are wonderful ways for readers to send us feedback, and we love hearing from you.

SO MUCH DEPENDS ON THE NURSERY. Whether it’s your first child or your fifth, this room is special—despite the sleepless nights. This is the place where the family brings home each tiny new addition for the first time. Pink may seem predictable for a little girl, but the soft gray and plum in Dwell Baby’s Gio nursery palette add interest, and the effect is anything but average. We designed for a tot with taste, starting with one of the most important pieces in the nursery: the rocking chair. Modernica’s Rocker Arm Chair comes in 16 delightful colors, and this design classic will bring enjoyment to more generations than one. For added amusement above a modern changing table from Tottini, we chose a quirky mountain-goat mobile made by the Duvall company Skyflight Mobiles. With a nursery that is this bright and playful, Mom and Dad won’t mind being sleep-deprived. Well, maybe.

AS DESIGN DEVOTEES, we’re obsessed with color—exploring fresh combinations, how they evolve and why. Though neutrals are a way of life for many Seattleites, one of the top color gurus is one of our own: Bainbridge Island–based Leatrice Eiseman is director of the Pantone Color Institute. The annual color palettes that Eiseman helps develop for Pantone impact design worldwide. Those schemes guide us in determining how the look of our living spaces will change—and each year’s new colors are shaped as much by current events as by design trends. Of the eight palettes released for 2010, we were particularly inspired by a collection that Pantone named “Resourceful.” The palette’s eight colors (see swatches, above) resonate with us in the Northwest because, now that winter is over, color is creeping back into our lives and even more so into our homes. The combination is a dynamic mix of vibrant sunset hues and elegant neutrals that Eiseman says is in keeping with our regional desire to incorporate the outside environment in our inside living spaces.

“We understand these colors in the Northwest, but it’s the mix of cool and warm tones that makes the combination fresh,” the Pantone director says. Mauve Orchid may conjure up memories of 1980s pastel chic, but Eiseman says the 2010 version casts a rosy glow of sophistication. “We added it as a warming element,” she explains. And while the rest of the world may be just warming up to ideas such as repurposing resources and sustainable materials, these are concepts to which Seattleites were early adapters. Such ideas served as muses for this palette. “Resourcefulness implies that we’re more clever in using things, and that idea carries over into being more creative with color,” Eiseman says. We like this palette for its inventive combination of vibrant tones, paired with down-to-earth neutrals, and we found examples in some of this season’s most exciting accessories and furniture for the home. “The trend is about reinventing color combinations and perking up a tired room,” Eiseman says. “And this color palette is a way to start.”

TALENT

RUG DESIGNER AND CERAMIC ARTIST LIZ GAMBERG says she has never been intimidated by the act of artistic creation. She has had her hands in art since childhood, when she began fashioning pottery and shaping prints. Now her handmade collages, ceramic art and rugs communicate natural simplicity and modern impulse, brightness and depth. After graduating with a degree in mathematics, Gamberg spent several years teaching math at local schools and community colleges while also making art that blends design with function. Although her visual art influences are clear— Matisse and Chagall, as well as natural imagery— Gamberg’s formal education influences her artistic endeavors too. “Math informs my art,” says the now full-time artist. “I feel my designs are balanced without being symmetrical. I tend to gravitate toward odd numbers of objects. When designing a rug, painting a ceramic piece or making a collage, I don’t think about how to apply math. But it’s all connected subconsciously.” Though Gamberg’s various creations include painted tables, hand-carved stamps and backsplash tiles, her most recent medium is rugs. She realized her collage style would translate well to rugs. “It’s the transferring of one two-dimensional medium to another,” she says. Once Gamberg completes a rug design, she sends it to Nepal, where the wool is hand-spun and hand-dyed, then knotted by weavers according to the artist’s specifications. The weavers are certified through RugMark/Goodweave, an organization dedicated to ending child labor in the carpet industry in South Asia. Each rug is custom made and certified fair trade. Gamberg has had a colorful career and a broad range of influences, but the math teacher–turnedartist sees a pattern buried in seeming contradictions. “I don’t see my career as so varied,” she says. “It feels like there have always been these two threads that continue to weave together: math and art.”

a

y pantry is an ever-present character in my life. Sometimes it pulses and bulges with too many ingredients, bought with good intentions but never used. Sometimes I open it up, look at all my well-stocked shelves full of grains, fruits, nuts and preserves, and think, “I have nothing to make.” Pantries are fickle—sometimes offering a wealth of options and sometimes feeling completely bare, even when packed to the gills. Stocking a pantry takes organization. It’s easy to fill it with ingredients that seem fun at the grocery store but sit untouched for months once you get them home. In my own pantry, I’ve been staring at the same bag of amaranth flour for far too long. It drives me crazy to waste the space and have this bag of grain taunting me every time I see it. So now I have to figure out what to make with it. My forthcoming book, Urban Pantry: Tips & Recipes for a Thrifty, Sustainable & Seasonal Kitchen, in bookstores in April, aims to demystify that age-old question: “What’s for dinner?” It provides a creative and wholesome foundation to start thinking about food in a fresh, different, delicious way. Recipes maximize ingredients the average home cook tends to have around. If you make roast chicken one night for dinner, for example, plan on using the leftovers the next day in a panzanella salad. Making the most out of your time spent in the kitchen is a smart way to start thinking about food. And varying the ingredients considerably keeps food interesting. I’m not a culinary genius—I’m just organized. Living an organic, healthy, seasonal, sustainable, insert-other-eco-buzz-word-here lifestyle does not mean you have to eat boring food better served to horses. I’m a city girl through and through. I may have dirt under my fingernails and a farmer’s tan, but I also like to drink fancy cocktails with basil-scented syrup and have champagne on a Tuesday night. Why not? Life is short. Too short for running out to the grocery store at 8 p.m. because you ran out of flour and your friend can’t make her gravy that tastes so good over her world-famous roast chicken. Here’s a recipe that uses eggs—one of the most neglected staples in the pantry. It also calls for another, less familiar, staple in my pantry: caster sugar, a superfine sugar that dissolves quickly in liquids. Eggs have a long shelf life, plus they are protein-rich and inexpensive and they cook up in a flash. They can be used for quick meals at home, far beyond the standard breakfast regime. Eggs can be poached, fried, baked, boiled, whipped into dressings, used as garnish—or used to create desserts such as this one. I discovered pavlova after I started making ice cream at home and had extra egg whites. Pavlova is a baked meringue dessert traditionally topped with simple fruit left unadorned. Because pavlova is so sweet, there is no need to add sugar to the fruit on top.

2. Beat the egg whites in a standing mixer until foamy and thick, usually about three to four minutes. Pour in half the caster sugar and beat until incorporated. Add the remaining caster sugar and beat until the mixture forms firm peaks. Using a fine-mesh strainer or sifter, shake the powdered sugar over the mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the powdered sugar, incorporating it well, which will take several folds. 3. Using an offset spatula (or butter knife), spread the meringue into a uniform disc on the parchment. Place the baking sheet on the center rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for another 45 minutes, until the pavlova is slightly golden, and turn off the oven, leaving the meringue to dry out overnight. Do not open the oven door! 4. Serve the next day with the crushed fruit of your liking—passion fruit, berries or stewed peaches work well. You can also serve with a generous dusting of cocoa powder for a subtle chocolate flavor. *Note: Pavlova holds at room temperature, loosely covered with parchment paper, for a week. Crumble up any leftover bits and store in a glass jar in the freezer for ice cream toppings.

7ELC^M¶–PIN× Spring is a time for new growth, rebirth, rejuvenation—and perhaps a little remodeling. In this issue, Seattle Homes & Lifestyles celebrates all of these things with two elegantly updated homes. One of them, on Queen Anne, was renovated to meet the needs of a young family (page 32). The other, in Yarrow Point, was the second collaboration between the interior designer and his clients, who now have teenagers (page 38). In Kirkland, a landscape designer shows off some of her most creative work—and favorite water features—in her own garden (page 44). These stories just might inspire you to do a little spring freshening of your own.

The stately Georgian Revival–style house overlooking Parsons Gardens has a stunning symmetrical façade and great bones, but it needed interior updating to better fit the lifestyle of a growing young family. “It was a bigger, older home—lots of small rooms, no closets, a staircase for servants. We just don’t live like that now,” says the wife, who was expecting the couple’s second child during the remodel. The choppy floor plan wasn’t the only problem. The previous owners had painted the walls stark white with primary-color accents for a museumlike feel—great for showcasing art, but not so great for busy family life.

The homeowners asked Burfiend for a warmer look that combines their traditional and modern tastes into a youthful yet sophisticated eclectic style. “I wanted to create a comfortable, inviting environment—to have something that the whole family can enjoy, spill things, what have you,” Burfiend says. “We didn’t want to have any rooms that were off-limits for kids,” the wife agrees. With principal architects Stuart Silk and Michael Troyer and contractors from Roberts Wygal also on board, the design team planned a fast-track remodel so the homeowners could move in and get settled before the birth of their daughter.

Most of the project involved redefining spaces on the main and upper levels. Silk and Troyer removed a service staircase and tore down a wall, fireplace and all, between the kitchen and the formal dining room to create an open area that is now the hub of family life. The former dining area was rededicated as a family room adjacent to the kitchen, and now the homeowners can cook while enjoying sunlight and garden views through south-facing windows. An elegant new dining room next to the kitchen features a zero-clearance fireplace and unique wine racks; it is perfect for both large holiday meals and casual pizza dinners. A wall separates the kitchen and family room from a formal living and sitting area. Pocket doors can slide shut when the homeowners want to entertain while the kids watch TV in the room next door. Upstairs, Silk and Troyer expanded the master suite into a neighboring

bedroom to open up enough space for a walk-in dressing area and a spalike bathroom. Although they were reworking the interiors, the design team was careful to respect the traditional elements of the original home. The architects matched the existing hardwood floors and crown moldings and designed French doors to fit the style of the home’s existing windows and doors. “It takes a real quiet, soft hand to work on these houses and be sensitive to protect the heritage but accommodate modern elements that families require today,” Silk says. Throughout the newly defined spaces, Burfiend created the eclectic look that the homeowners desired. In the study, a white lacquer desk, high-sheen casework and a traditional fireplace mantel—salvaged from the wall that was removed between the old dining room and kitchen—

The feeling is mutual. Burfiend lauds the designersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teamwork, and architects Silk and Troyer describe the owners as perfect clients who make quick decisions. Eight months after the start of the project, the homeowners and their 2-year-old son were settled into their new home.

nterior designer Doug Rasar often works on multiple projects with the same clients over the years. Not long ago, Rasar and architect Brandt Hollinger (who has since retired and moved to California) revisited a home on Yarrow Point that they had designed more than 10 years ago for a Bellevue family. The couple’s then-young children had since grown into high school students, and the family was ready for a new look as well as a remodel to meet their changing needs. Since their first collaboration, Rasar had worked on the owners’ Montana ranch and their business office interiors. The designer welcomed the opportunity for another “joint venture.” “We always have a lot of back and forth,” Rasar says of the relationship with his clients, who were involved in all aspects of the redesign. In its original conception, the shingle-style home kept to traditional décor and primary colors. This time around, the idea was to introduce a more

muted and sophisticated color sensibility and to infuse the interiors with both eclectic and modern touches. “The whole agenda was to make this a more mature family house,” says Rasar, who used dark, rich earth tones for the finishes and furnishings. The first priority was to enhance the home as a gathering spot for the teenage twins and their friends. Rasar and Hollinger enlarged the kitchen and moved it to an outside wall so the owners can enjoy natural light in that room. They created an informal dining space in the former kitchen area and converted what was once the main living room into an inviting library. Other additions include a media and game room and a covered outdoor patio with a fireplace that serves as an all-weather entertainment area. Upstairs, they reconfigured the children’s rooms and the closets. A collection of exquisite contemporary American artwork—which the owners had originally acquired for a corporate office—found new life in

the redesigned home. Many of the pieces are now focal points that are given added relief by deep hues on the walls. Rasar, who believes in creating a highly individualized look for each project, shopped in New York and Los Angeles as well as Seattle to outďŹ t the new interiors, as well as creating many custom light ďŹ xtures with Gulassa & Co., Inc. The home is now a harmonious mix of both old and new European, Asian and American furnishings. As in all Rasar interiors, the home contains many unique features. In the media room, for example, Rasar juxtaposed stained and painted wood on the walls. He also seamed together small area rugs to form a larger ďŹ&#x201A;oor rug and designed a custom sectional with a back upholstered in woven tribal rugs. The marriage of diverse elements is perhaps most surprising in the kitchen.

The Kirkland house that she and her husband, Leon, had built for them 24 years ago after they moved to the Northwest from California is adjacent to a spring-fed wetland. A stream runs east of the house, then diagonally through the front landscape where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then diverted into the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storm drains. Warman added water of her own design: fountains that burble, gush and weep as well as basins that hold still water throughout the garden. Water collects in depressions atop basalt basin stones and in a shallow copper bowl, where it reďŹ&#x201A;ects images and light. As a landscape designer, Warman knows that water features, plants and garden accessories must be integrated elements in a landscapeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pieces working toward a whole eďŹ&#x20AC;ectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and she knows that every garden begins somewhere. In her own garden, the ďŹ rst piece she added was a ďŹ&#x201A;agstone patio in back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all ďŹ ll dirt,â&#x20AC;? Warman says, describing the blank slate with which she started in 1985. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted a place for my daughter to ride her Big Wheel.â&#x20AC;? But because the house sits to the back of the quarter-acre lot, it was close to the property lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make this more private,â&#x20AC;? Warman says, standing on the back deck. So at the top of the bank above the patio, they planted English laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) and Leyland cypress (x Cuprocyparis leylandii) that grew into a tall green wall to accompany native willow, buckthorn and vine maple. For years, that was the extent of Warmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home garden design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This climate didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t engender gardening in me,â&#x20AC;? she says of often gray, rainy days in the Puget Sound region. Still, a high school job in a Southern California ďŹ&#x201A;ower shop and a love of plants eventually led her to garden design. In 2002, when she worked in the indoor plants department at Molbakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Woodinville, Warman met Don Marshall, who runs the environmental horticulture program at Lake Washington Technical College in Kirkland. She decided to enroll in the program and soon began using her talent for design and knowledge of plants to create gardens that included an award-winning display for the 2007 Northwest Flower & Garden Show. Warmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolved love of plants and new skills as a designer led her to dive back into her own garden creation. Because she wanted a focal point that

could be enjoyed from inside the house as well as from the garden, Warman and her husband installed a trough fountain at the edge of the patio. A secondary benefit was that the fountain provides an aural privacy screen. Its design is sleek and classic: Decorative metal-toned concrete tiles set into quartz tile are fixed with copper pipes as spigots on either side of a central spout fashioned from an antique coal scoop. Concrete accented with small, embedded tiles covers the cinderblock that forms the fountain, which is capped with Arizona flagstone. As Warman worked on her own garden and began helping clients with their garden dreams, she realized her main interest lies in foliage and form—“I look for leaf shape and texture,” she says. “I don’t plant for [how a plant] flowers, because flowers don’t last.” At the east end of her backyard flagstone patio grow native plants that include sword fern (Polystichum munitum), red-flowering currant (Ribes sanguineum) and high-bush cranberry (Viburnum edule). “I start a lot of plants in containers,” Warman says of the ceramic pots that sit on her deck, on the front porch and throughout the garden. In one large green container grows Ginkgo biloba ‘Jade Butterflies.’ The ancient ginkgo is Warman’s favorite plant, the one she chose as her business logo: “It symbolizes strength, longevity and wisdom.” The fan-shaped leaves of ‘Jade Butterflies’ are especially large and scalloped.

A quiet shade garden outside the dining room at the corner of the house was designed “mainly for viewing through the windows,” the designer explains. This garden claims the spot of her son’s former sandbox—he’s now 16. Warman designed it for winter, with glossy fronds of the tassel fern at the base of the Japanese pagoda tree (Sophora japonica), along with native wild ginger and hellebores. Evergreen shrubs add color year-round—the red foliage of heavenly bamboo and mottled cream-pink-white-and-green leaves of Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘Goshiki.’ Outside the shade garden, through a gate flanked by Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Lady in Red,’ sits a patio screened from the street by trees and large shrubs. A copper fire cauldron draws family and friends here to enjoy the garden in the evening. “Our son is a musician, and he and his friends come out here, roast hot dogs and marshmallows and play music,” Warman says. A purple-leaf plum tree creates a canopy for the patio; the tree is underplanted with more tassel ferns and silver-leaf bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’). Water from the hillside runs through a rock-lined channel in the front garden—after Warman and her husband cleared out invasive blackberries. Native plants reclaim the eastern edge of their property and, with permission, the Warmans now clear noxious weeds off their neighbor’s hillside, too, and help maintain the canopy of evergreens and bigleaf maples.

Each of the more than 300 diďŹ&#x20AC;erent kinds of plants in Warmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden plays its part.

BEFORE & AFTER

The variety of shades in 3-grade hickory flooring creates a farmhouse aesthetic.

`][\hUbX hYlhifY

A new back porch connects to the kitchen via a mudroom. The open-plan kitchen and dining room means plenty of space for a family-sized dining table large enough to seat 12 people.

WRITTEN BY AARON MONCIVAIZ PHOTOGRAPH BY PETE SALOUTOS

THE KITCHEN IN THIS BAINBRIDGE ISLAND HOME was dark and small, and the home’s choppy and restrictive layout made the owners feel as though they were sitting across from each other on a small train, architect Peter Brachvogel explains. THE SOLUTION: To help them create an open kitchen with room for a dining table, the homeowners brought in Brachvogel and Stella Carroso of BC&J Architects. “The idea was to move the kitchen to the sunnier back porch area,” Brachvogel says. The old kitchen was at the center of the house, with no windows. Now the room, well lit by west-facing windows with backyard views, is a more comfortable place for family gatherings. Brachvogel and Carroso painted the vaulted ceiling charcoal and installed hemlock wood strips, spaced a quarter inch apart, to create an appealing shadow line and to add texture to an

otherwise plain ceiling. To keep with the home’s farmhouse aesthetic, they used matching hickory flooring. At the homeowners’ request, the architects added an exit to an adjoining mudroom and a passage to the master bedroom to prevent bottlenecks in the high-traffic area. “Our kids were growing and it was difficult to have more people in the kitchen,” the owner says. “But this flows better. It’s more welcoming.” The owners also found a new—and better—use for the old kitchen space: They turned the windowless area into an appropriately low-lit study.

PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY HUGHES STUDIO ARCHITECTS

F989G=;B=B;;F99B WRITTEN BY RACHEL GALLAHER

WHAT STARTED AS A DESIRE TO MAKE ROOM FOR A SIMPLE STUDIO in Deb Prince and Jerry Diercks’ waterfront Salmon Bay home eventually transformed into a plan for a fully renovated, environmentally friendly home. “The catalyst was that Jerry needed a studio to work in, and that was the whole tipping point,” explains architect Cheryl Hughes of Hughes Studio Architects. “We decided, if we’re going to do this, let’s do it right.” To work within the house’s original footprint, Hughes and the homeowners opted to reconfigure existing spaces to make them more functional. They renovated the basement, excavating the ground on the water side and adding windows to let in light. “Not all of the elements of the remodel appear green at first glance, but it was a shared goal from the beginning,” Hughes explains. The pool, for example, is integrated with a solar hot water system that warms the house through an in-floor system when it is cold outside and heats the pool during warmer months. Rooftop photovoltaic panels generate electricity, which powers the home. Inside the house, all of the appliances are Energy Star; floors, interior doors and cabinetry are made of sustainable woods such as lyptus, bamboo and ipe. Many of the home’s elements, such as the slide-fold doors, were available at local stores, and all of the cabinetry and interior doors were made by the contractor, cutting down on the overall carbon footprint of the project. But materials and design are not the only elements of a green remodel: “The biggest green thing about the whole project was that they didn’t move,” Hughes says. “They didn’t tear down the house they already had. They used every inch of space and intend to stay there the rest of their lives.” For resource information, see Sources, page 78.

DOWNTOWN LIVING

OVER THE BRIDGE and across the lake from Seattle lies Bellevue, a 31-square-mile city that is now the fifth most populous city in the state. What is now the city of Bellevue was mostly dense woods and boggy terrain—with few homes—until the early 1900s. The discovery of coal in 1867, followed by a logging boom, encouraged an influx of settlers over the next 40 years. In the early 20th century, the area became a thriving and prosperous farming community, and the 1940 opening of the Lake Washington floating bridge (now known as the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge) attracted people from Seattle. Bellevue was incorporated as a city in 1953. In the past 20 years, Bellevue has experienced rapid growth that has made it one of the most populated cities in the state. Yet many of its neighborhoods still boast the small-community feel of the early years. Each section of the city has its own unique attractions, making for diverse real estate options within the city limits. Property in Bellevue ranges from chic downtown condos to suburban midcentury ramblers, according to Windermere media contact Sonja Riveland. “Moving here 25 years ago was one of the best decisions my husband and I ever made,” says Leslie Lloyd, president of the Bellevue Downtown Association.

“Looking back, the great schools for our kids, strong sense of community and proximity to jobs are reasons we’ve stayed and continue to love our city.” At less than one square mile, Bellevue’s downtown is only a fraction of the city’s total land area but is the hub for a flourishing community. It is the city’s fastest-growing neighborhood, with a current population of more than 6,000 and an employee base of almost 45,000, Lloyd says. Though dominated by condos and apartments, downtown Bellevue is a family-friendly place to raise children. The area boasts a low violent-crime rate, feeds into Bellevue’s highly ranked public school system and is very walkable, with gyms, grocery stores and other amenities just blocks away from many residences. Although the economic downturn led to a significant decrease in unit sales, Windermere real estate agent Matt Deasy says sales in Bellevue are up 19 percent from 2008. Bellevue’s rapid commercial development and population growth of the past few years don’t have an end in sight—Lloyd predicts that the number of city residents will more than double by 2020—and her description of the area might explain why: “Vibrant, thriving, livable—a great place to be. Downtown Bellevue is the economic and cultural heart of the Eastside.”
