It's not hard to spot that Scott and Jacqui Scoggin are lovers of great design and vintage style when you step into their Tacoma home. A husband-and-wife business team, the duo are owners and artists at Year Round Co., where they create original art prints, lifestyle products, and custom design right out of their home.
The space is open, relaxed and genuine. As a visitor, you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in the door. The openness of the layout almost gives the impression of a vacation home—somewhere you could put up your feet with a good book. The couple has definitely adopted pieces of the Washington atmosphere as well, with earthy tones, a nod to native wildlife, beautiful reclaimed furniture and various vintage accoutrement.
The rooms are peppered with personalized details, family mementos and original artwork, some passed down for generations! A lot of the most interesting pieces—such as the screen-printed pillows and prints—are created by the couple themselves, which can be found in their shop! (That is, if you can take your eyes off their adorable new puppy, Nico!)
Enjoy their sweet home—it is a breath of fresh Washington air!
Apartment Therapy Survey:
Our Style: Flea Market/Contemporary
Inspiration: Beautifully crafted items, usually vintage or handmade. Nature.
Favorite Element: That our house is made up of objects and things we've made and collected together.
Biggest Challenge: Having enough time and money to do more major upgrades (i.e. kitchen and bathroom)
What Friends Say: They say it feels warm and inviting and that we have so many little details and interesting things to look at. And the chalkboard wall is always a conversation starter.
Biggest Embarrassment: It's not really an embarrassment, but the kitchen hasn't been updated since we moved in and there's lots of things we'd change about it to fit our style.
Proudest DIY: There's so many, but the built-in bookshelves and fireplace Scott built really make this once awkward area of the house feel cozy and functional.
Biggest Indulgence: After renting live/work spaces, just buying our house was an indulgence, especially for all the space we now have.
Best Advice: Buy and/or collect what you love. Many of the pieces we bought 10 years ago are in style now, but we'll love them even when they trend back out. Don't be afraid to go through and toss items out that no longer work or at the very least change them up so they do! If you can't decide a wall color, paint it white or gray and fill it with artwork you love.
Dream Sources: Old houses and barns filled floor to ceiling. Travel.
