Neutral basics like a circular jute rug and sectional sofa create a basic functional background (and provide plenty of seating for entertaining and lounging), while colorful drapes and a throw pillow pack in the personality. Ikat curtains in a fan pleat design are installed at ceiling height to give the illusion of taller ceilings.

Year-round Garden Room
This garden room is a Northwest take on the lanai. It's open on two sided and provides flexible options for outdoor living. The architect conceived it as a summer deck that would "float" in a sea of salal, but it was transformed into an all-season outdoor room when he and the owners decided to add a roof, a fireplace, and walls that slide closed in stormy weather.
