NESTLED BETWEEN THE ADVENTUROUS OUTDOORS AND BELLEVUE’S URBAN DOWNTOWN LIES THE QUIETLY POSH SUBURB OF MEDINA, WHERE DESIGNER STEVEN HENSEL TRANSFORMED A FRENCH-INFLUENCED RESIDENCE INTO A CASUAL, TRANSITIONAL STUNNER.

Prior to deciding that this would be the place where she would plant her roots and raise her children, homeowner Renée Harbers embarked on an extensive house-hunting excursion that spanned most of the West Coast. The long journey concluded in Medina, where Harbers came upon her dream home—complete with her desired layout, a handsome pool, and a coveted neighborhood located on a prestigious golf course. But she still had one last hurdle: The fussy French interiors didn’t reflect her family. “The home had all the features for which we’d been searching, but the décor simply wasn’t our taste,” she says. “I knew I needed to find a designer who understood my lifestyle.” INTERIOR DESIGN Steven Hensel, Hensel Design Studios ARCHITECTURE Curtis Gelotte, AIA, Gelotte Hommas Architecture HOME BUILDER Craig Halterman and Jonathan Fast,
