Daymon's Open Plan with an Open View Rental

House Tour

Name: Daymon Bruck
Location: North Capitol Hill — Seattle, Washington
Size: 1600 square feet, 2 BR
Years lived in: 2 — rented/live-work

This Seattle-based brand designer calls a 2-story 1960's loft building both home and work. With expansive windows and views of the city, water, and lush green hills, Daymon is a lucky man: he wakes up to this backdrop, works in front of killer vistas, and can take breaks throughout his days with peeks at the outdoors (either with a telescope or by stepping into his charming yard/patio area).

We love Daymon's mix of flea market, Italian, and modern pieces, along with the varying textures and finishes of marble, fiberglass, wood and leather. Nothing seems out of place, and everything seems strikingly special. Enjoy the glimpse!

Inspiration: "Beautiful things go together."

Favorite Element: view, outdoor space, location, open floor-plan

Biggest Challenge: it's a big space to fill!

What Friends Say: "WOW.....how did you find this place?"

Biggest Embarrassment: dirty windows - there are so many to keep clean.

Proudest DIY: a beat-up black $40 dresser flea market find that I painted Chinese green
