NO SMALL PROJECT
Katie worked alongside Peter Swindley Architects to create the 6500+ sq. ft. renovation and addition of an existing tudor style home in the Windermere neighborhood of Seattle. Special attention was placed on maintaining the original style of the home, while modernizing with the latest and greatest luxuries.
A cedar shake roof, brick masonry chimneys, and metal clad arched dormers help maintain the home’s original character, always a high priority with the homes Katie designs.
Katie creates a custom wall of cabinetry, equipped with hidden speakers and electronics, surrounding the mantle to achieve a seamless and tidy family room space.
A SENSE OF HISTORY
The inset cabinetry is designed with bolection molds, beaded face frames, and brass hardware. A brush painted finish is applied to give the kitchen a sense of history.
A SERENE BATH
A steam shower book-matched in Calacatta marble slabs, Waterworks fixtures and fittings, Calacatta mosaic floor, and custom stained his and her vanities all combine to provide a serene escape for the owners to unwind.
NATURAL LIGHT THROUGHOUT
High priority is placed on providing natural light, direct and indirect, throughout the interior.
A noticeable trademark of tudor homes is their high-pitched rooflines. The team extends this strong architectural element into the new addition, and restores the old to match.
Katie incorporates high end simplicity throughout the home by using authentic materials in a streamlined and classic way.
AN ENTERTAINING KITCHEN
The grand kitchen is designed around entertaining, equipped with a beautiful soapstone island, double ovens, a steam oven, a warming drawer, a high-powerd microwave, a 47 inch wide stainless double bowl sink, a 60 inch built-in refrigerator/freezer, a separate bar and bar fridge, and a striking Calacatta slab backsplash which provides the wow factor.
