Inspiring modern home in Seattle decorated with mid-century classics
This modern home in a residential neighbourhood of Seattle, Washington was designed by local architects PB Elemental. The geometric design, modern use of concrete and metal cladding makes a bold statement of contemporary architecture and the inside doesn't disappoint. Lots of airy, flexible and open living areas have been created with additional outdoor space on the rooftop terrace. The openness and flexibility of the living areas has been managed by using carefully selected pieces to designate different uses and styles to capture mood and application.
Step into the living room, with high ceilings and full height windows the outlook is beautiful and the rooms are bright. The optimistic feel is matched by bright, exciting furnishings and artwork that must mirror the owners personality.
A library area has been created with a large built in bookcase and the Eames lounge chair signals sophistication and quiet contemplation. The upholstered occasional chairs make the area more social but it's still the more serious part of the living area.
The dining table has been made by extending the countertop out to create a 5 seater and the white tulip chairs are retro yet still modern. Using a Louis Ghost chair on the end mirrors the large windows and airiness of the home as well as being a practical way to provide seating without the visual bulk of a traditional dining chair.
Downstairs, the owners have placed another mid-century classic Eames rocking chair (RAR) to punctuate the modern, angular look of the hallway and staircase with something playful and inviting.
The upstairs patio must be a fantastic place to entertain or relax on a warm summer day
The bedrooms have been furnished with bright coloured pieces and artwork to inject some extra personality into the angular, modern rooms. The effect creates balanced, fun and quirky rooms
At night, the home looks stunning
