Seattle Home Inspirations

Happy Monday!  The movers are here and have started is a strange but good feeling to have this day finally arrive.  Even though we still have the trip in front of us, the design enthusiast in me has already started scouring the web for the house hunt that will follow.  Other factors besides the home itself will play into our decision, such as schools, commutes and that silly thing called money, but right now I am just dreaming a bit!  I thought it would be fun to share a few beautiful homes with you along the way. 

First up is this home, available for a cool $26M!!  That is not going to be my future home but some lucky person will get it!   I thought it was a tasteful, unique mix of furnishings and art, and the kitchen is really nice.  Take a look...

Love this kitchen with all of the cookbooks and open shelving.
I think I especially like it becuase although the house is grand the kitchen looks very approachable.

Not bad eh?
Just in case you are in the market, you can find the details here.

Also, thank you for all of the well wishes for our going away parties.  They were wonderful, although teary at points. I am kicking myself for leaving such a fantastic community of friends and family behind, but a new one awaits us in friendly Seattle! A few bloggers have already reached out to me with helpful advice, connections, etc. and it is much appreciated!  OK back to packing now...have a great day!

This is a great house! I love the idea of an island in the bathroom. I haven't seen that before. This house might be over your budget, but I'm sure you will find something perfect for your family. Good luck with the packing. x Sharon

Gorgeous house with such a rustic eclectic feel and great indoor/outdoor space. I love the rug by the piano and that fabulous ceiling.
