Last month we introduced the Design & Chemistry House Tour Trilogy with Brooke’s Modern Boho Loft. Now get ready for Part 2 as we get a peek at Tyler’s space weeks before he and Brooke moved in together as a married couple.
After meeting Tyler during Brooke’s tour, I was excited to see his style and get a glimpse of what their shared space might ultimately look like. And as it turns out, their tastes are extremely symbiotic. Tyler and Brooke’s love of old, quirky, and nostalgic items was instantly apparent when I first entered the lovely light-filled space.
Tyler is creative director and partner of Flint Design which he recently opened here in Seattle. Flint specializes in creative strategy and branding for various businesses. As a very talented graphic designer you can see all of his design sensibilities entering his home space with his attention to detail in light, layout, color, and conceptual balance that you find throughout each room. Tyler’s home has a very old-timey masculine color palette of brown, creme, and red that runs throughout the living and dining areas that seems to exude an incredible sense of warmth, comfort, and style. There are lots of industrial DIY pieces, like the dining table, pipe bookshelf, and copper light stand, scattered in with the stunning vintage furniture and unique odds and ends that make this home a perfect meld of styles. As with Brooke’s home you can find yourself getting lost in the details around every corner.
Tyler and Brooke have so many great pieces that I’m not sure how they will be able to choose what stays, what goes, and what new pieces are moving in. They have enough of a common style with some great differences that I’m sure their new place with be nothing short of stunning. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
Stay tuned for Part 3: Brooke & Tyler!
