David Alewine, the creator of The Linen Napkin, has a passion for craftsmanship. He believes that "the things that leave a lasting impression ... are those that are made by the hands of a person with a deep passion for their craftsmanship." So it's no surprise that all of the table linens offered on The Linen Napkin are handcrafted by David himself.
I am already overwhelmed (as I look out my window over the the uncarved jack-o-lanterns/Thanksgiving decoration pumpkins that languish, half frozen, on my front porch) to find myself smack in the holiday season. Am I the only one that it has snuck up on? Trying to catch up (already), I feel like I need a jolt of holiday music and some seasonal decorating to get me up and running.
Name: Jennifer Location: Portage Bay - Seattle, Washington
Two years ago, we figured out that we are not house-fixer-upper people and moved from a rambling 1902 house to a smaller one-story-with-a-finished-basement house in the Portage Bay neighborhood. (Close to the water, so my partner, Therese, could stand-up paddle in the mornings before work.)
I am excited to announce that I will be a Design Coach in Puget Sound Energy's design competition Re-Energized By Design. Follow me after the jump to find out more about the contest and, if you are in the area, how you can become a contestant.
Name: Nick Wafle, Grad Student, University of Washington Location: Capitol Hill – Seattle, Washington Size: 900 square feet Years lived in: 2 years
Kudos to Nick for not letting the meager budget of a student get in the way of living in a stylish and comfortable apartment. After seeing a few photos of the space, you realize that his home fits him perfectly, and you can definitely see the East Coast inspiration throughout.
