Very cool home and so personal,the use of vintage desk lamps is brilliant!
Really like this space a lot and would also like to see an update photo shoot.

The stairs to the loft are gorgeous,but no martini's for me before bed!!

I buy that wheatgrass that you can pick up pretty cheaply in the produce section of the grocery store.They chew that down to the nubs and have never really bothered going after my other plants.I replace it about every two weeks or so.It's not a steady diet but more like a supplemental treat.

I rented a very old mini house (servant house?) with a drop dead view of the Sound.The bathroom was a add on so the only way to access it was thru a closest.The rod was hung on the angle and the opening to the bthrm was on the right.For privacy you closed the closet door. After I moved, it became the local radio stations "haunted house".Then it and the rest of the block were torn down for office/condos.with drop dead views of the Sound!

Before I read your statement and going thru the house tour I thought "Oh,you went grey trendy" which being a PNW gal who has the required webbed feet,just makes the area feel gloomy.Then after reading your situation,I realized what you were up against. I really like your openness of design and use of space.
I would have liked to see(gosh I can't believe I'm going to use that term)pops of color.

The condo I live in has a staggered view(part landscape,part neighbor)The new folks that moved in put there little girls in the bedroom that directly faces my kitchen.Every time I look they are elbows on the sill watching me.I know it could be worse(creepy pervert) but still its disconcerting.The family is new to this country and speak very little English,and I've made attemps to be friendly,but how do you tell someone there kids need another hobby.I close my shades now,but I hate a dark kitchen.I hope they grow out of it.Meanwhile,sigh!

With my extra cherries I'll pit them (yes,it's a bit of a hassle,so worth it)and then freeze them.Come Nov,Dec,Jan I'll pull a bag out,let them thaw just a little bit and then eat them like candy! Summer in a bag.
