Name: Jen
Location: Seward Park, Seattle

I fell in love with this house online, before I'd even moved to Seattle. It was an estate, so it hadn't been touched since the 60's. But there were great original bones - a flagstone entry way, a stone fireplace that divided the front and back of the house. Not to mention a view of the lake.

When I was re-doing it I had a totally different color scheme in mind - cooler, with more greys. But the house wanted color, dictated by the red oak floors. Grey did nothing for it! I would say my style is simple - i don't like too much in the way of tchotchkes or things on the counters. My ornaments are books, art and my dog. I like earthy, ethnic patterns. And lots of light - the most important decor when you live in Seattle!
