Stephen's Mid Century in Seattle
What I Love About My Home
My partner and I both fell in love with our mid-century condo, built for the Seattle World's Fair as an example of modern architecture. Our apartment is bathed in natural light afforded by wraparound windows even during Seattle's many overcast days. We've been slowly doing all the renovations ourselves as time and budget permits, including a full gut of the kitchen, refinishing all the floors, and bathrooms. Our style is eclectic, with modern blending with flea market. We like entertaining and making our home feel welcoming, cozy and lived-in.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
There have been many challenges in creating our home, but by far, the small galley kitchen was the most daunting. It took five times longer than we anticipated, it was difficult to work in such tight quarters, and because none of the walls were square, we faced lots of frustrating times in trying to creatively squeeze in our cabinets. There were weeks where we had to either eat out, or creatively assemble dinner in the guest bathroom. We can both pick out small mistakes we made during the trial and error process, but that is both the joy and reality of DIY. Overall, it's been a labor of love, and it makes our space more personal with lots of stories to tell.
