Casey Rogers and Juan Esteves have put A LOT of work into the house they own in West Seattle — like a full top-to-bottom remodel.

The electrical, heating, and cooling systems all got an upgrade. They took the bathroom count from one-and-a-half baths to three full baths. And they worked to improve what they describe as the connectivity between the living spaces and the backyard.

And although the couple worked with a contractor, they handled ALL the design of the space. “The slat wall, the fireplace, all of our furniture and decor … we drew inspiration from our travels and some design firms that we liked, and in collaboration with our contractor developed a design for our house,” Casey writes.

But as anyone who’s ever undertaken a remodel knows, the redo wasn’t without any challenges. For the couple, it was trying to find space for a bathroom upstairs, with Casey explaining that the solution “was to add a dormer to accommodate an ensuite bathroom for each of the upstairs bedrooms.” 

“Because we didn’t work with a designer, we had to make all of the decisions ourselves,” Casey admits. “We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of decisions (and one of us is an indecisive libra lol) and choices to make — even selecting a shade of white paint was hard! (We chose Sherwin Williams Swiss Coffee for our white paint, by the way.)”

The design of their house, which is on a corner and has views of trees and greenery out of every window, is subdued but sophisticated. “We like a modern space that balances warmth and coolness through colors and materials; we like having a simple canvas to add splashes of color,” Casey describes. “Much of the art and decor was acquired from our travels around the world! Our friend Colleen describes our style as ‘Modern Deco Minimalism’ and we love it.”
