This beautiful Dutch Colonial style home with a traditional interior styling was designed by Paul Moon Design, located in the Yarrow Point neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Nestled on Lake Washington, this 6,000 square foot residence was built for a family of four and can best be described as cozy, open and inviting and surprisingly kid-friendly. From the front door, the home beckons you in, and as you enter, you will notice a grand staircase and crisp white interiors with contrasting dark stained oak wood flooring. The dining room is central to an open plan living room on one side and kitchen and family room on the other. This arrangement is perfect not only for family interaction, but also has a nice, easy flow for entertaining guests. The spacious home features an eat-in kitchen island for casual dining, opting out of a breakfast nook. The design of the home was inspired by the Hamptons home featured in the movie “Somethings Gotta Give”. Its from this that the interior designer on the project, Susan Marinello Interiors, knew right away what the client was looking for: a sophisticated, clean environment that is very serene and flooded with natural light.
Walls of French doors opens the house to the outdoors, while the interior palette is kept serene to play a complementary and supporting role to what is going on outside the home. A neutral color scheme was inspired by the regions sky and water, with walls painted in soothing hues of oyster, flax and sandy beige. Accessories and artwork give sudden bursts of color, while fabrics are selected to be more neutral, in hues of oatmeal and chocolate.
What We Love: The warmth of the interiors, layered textures and extremely charming exterior facade. This home is stunning from the moment of entry with the soaring ceilings in the foyer and the coffered ceilings in the main living spaces adds sophistication and elegance.
