Home Tour: A Perfectly Balanced Creative Seattle Pad

Designer Brian Paquette was challenged by his clients to transform a plain, personality-free house into a calming retreat fit for a creative pair. Located in a small section of Seattle known as Tangletown, the three-bedroom, three-bath home was purchased by Paquette’s clients a little over a year ago. Photographers and creatives who opted to transform one of the bedrooms into an office and another into a tranquil meditation room, the couple are travelers who wanted to create a relaxing space that would reflect their passions and lifestyle.

“They wanted simplicity and space,” says Paquette. “A place to just breathe and recharge their creative batteries.” By combining ethnic and industrial influences with a tonal color palette, Paquette delivered a comfortable home fit for the couple and their beloved cat.
