Washington weather is so bipolar. We get warm sunny days reaching 80 degrees and higher and then poof we’ve seen rain with the temperature being in the 70’s. With all this back and forth with the rain, homeowners can’t decide on being outside or being inside. Like I stated in last months newsletter, a covered patio may be exactly what you need to keep out of the wetness and not so warm. There are also enclosed patios, or even sun-rooms that could bring you much joy as being outside, within the comfort of your home. Nice big beautiful windows to let in all that light, a new sliding glass door for access to the backyard, or even just leave it open to let the breeze in. We can build your dreams.

Wake Up Your Kitchen Design With These 5 Breakfast Nook
[realtor.com: Jane Chertoff]
While over sized islands have been #kitchengoals for years now, this year’s kitchen has a new status symbol: the breakfast nook.
A breakfast nook offers an ideal setup for meals (and not just breakfast!) without pressure and formality of the dining room table. Plus, it works equally well in large and small kitchens. That’s more why more and more clients are requesting one in their kitchen design, says Carol Estes, an Interior designer in Southern California.
“Nooks are having their moment,” she says. “They take up less floor space than a traditional table and chairs, and they aren’t just for families with kids. They appeal to all ages and should be cozy, comfortable, encourage engagement, and communication.”
“If you have a transitional-style home, don’t use ultra-contemporary furniture and features,” she says. “This nook should look like part of the kitchen, not an add-on. The style should blend into the room.”
“Straight boxes [as benches] allow storage under seats, too,” Estes points out.
Set up a bench (whether built-in or not) against the wall or island, and cover it with cozy pillows and cushions. Complete the look with chairs and a table that are easy to move, so that anyone can slide in and out.
Look for an oversize chair or small bench that fits your measurements. Then add a tulip table and another chair, if you have room.
“Oval or circular pedestal tables work best for easier access here, since they have no corner or legs,” Estes says.
“I love the idea of a floating bench – it adds a cleaner look that can be softened by textured pillows,” she says. She recommends black sconces or another modern pendant light fixture to complete the look.
As for installing your floating bench, you may want to get professional to help. It can be a bit tricky, depending on your wall situation.
“i love the idea of a modern, bohemian vibe, which includes a well-balanced mix of clean lines and vintage textures,” she says.
To create your boho look, use walnut cafe chairs or even rattan-style chairs, and then use lots of comfy, textured pillows. Add a cool, modern light fixture. Finish up with some plants for a pop greenery, which is sure to cheer you up each morning.
