Spaces

Our spaces are where we live. Our rooms, from living rooms to bedrooms to bathrooms to closets, reflect our personalities. In many cases, they reflect the Pacific Northwest’s best qualities—its natural beauty and a culture of innovation and creativity. In a place where sunshine is at a premium, we covet whatever natural light the daytime gives us. The spaces here reflect that with striking views, high ceilings, and open floor plans. Bringing the outside in, via windows and skylights, is a common theme. That’s understandable. With all the beauty that surrounds us, why wouldn’t we? Take a look at these spaces we’ve selected for the style, originality, and inspiration they give us. – Meri-Jo Borzilleri
