Name: Sara Knowles
Location: Beacon Hill Neighborhood, Seattle, Washington

My partner Logan and I recently relocated to Seattle from Washington, DC, and found a lovely little house to rent in the Beacon Hill neighborhood — conveniently on the same street as my sister!

It is a charming craftsman that has been recently updated but retained some of its period details, like the beautiful original cabinetry in the kitchen and much of the original hardware. It has around 900 square feet of living space on the main floor, as well as an unfinished basement which we have converted into a craft room and ping pong/game room.

My favorite thing about this house (besides living down the street from my sister) would have to be the incredible amount of natural light it gets. We’re lucky to be perched on a little hill, so on a clear day we have a nice view of the mountains – one of the mean reasons we decided to move West! My style is heavily influenced by the natural world, so being close to the water and mountains has definitely been inspiring.

I spent the last three years working as a buyer for a vintage furniture store in Washington, DC, and during that time accumulated (er, hoarded) lots of eclectic goodies. The best part about moving into this house was finally having a space to showcase and enjoy all of those treasures. Now I’m focusing on starting my own interior styling business in Seattle, so setting up our home has been a wonderful first project.

Thanks, Sara!
