Before and After: A Sophisticated Seattle Penthouse
When our clients asked us to help them redesign their Seattle penthouse, we were excited to reimagine the high-rise space! It has incredible views of the cityscape, but the interiors were not as exciting. Since this is a second home for our clients we wanted them to have a gorgeous space with interiors inspired by the pied-a-terre interior architecture and the Pacific Coast setting.
Despite those fantastic windows, this Seattle penthouse was a little dark and the space needed much more personality. We brought in sophisticated furnishings and a great wallpaper that highlighted the coastal setting. It’s the perfect mix of Parisian pied-à-terre and Pacific Coast hideaway!
In the living room, we lightened the look with a neutral rug and warm gold furnishings. A unique wallcovering on the ceiling brings the eye up and makes the space seem larger. Textures, animal prints, and fabulous art and accessories add personality and life to the living room, too.
The paneling in the study was a bit dated, and it made the room seem dark. We lightened and brightened the wall color, which completely transformed the room, taking advantage of the incredible light coming through the bank of windows. A sleeper sofa adds function for our clients, giving them a place for guests to sleep over. And a mix of patterns, art, and unique accessories give a glimpse into our clients’ favorite items and collections.
The paneling behind the bed in the primary bedroom was more modern looking, so we kept that and updated the fixtures and furnishings. Using lighter bedding and lamps helps balance the darker paneling and adds a more layered look.
We also took advantage of a small nook with shelving and created a sophisticated home office, giving our clients a lot of functionality.
We knew we wanted to lighten the guest bath, so we added a great wallcovering that mimics the misty skies and water views right outside the window.
