Pacific Northwest Modern

When I think of the term "Pacific Northwest Modern", this condo in Bellingham, WA is exactly what comes to mind.

Since the pacific northwest can be gloomy and gray with all the cloud cover, its nice to see so many windows.

I always wondered if the home owners have to get used to living in a "fish bowl" at night since all the neighbors can see in?

The windows allow the homeowners to take in the spectacular views particularly at sunset. I see two problems with the staging of this home. First the furniture seems out of scale with the size of the room and height of the ceiling and secondly, as beautiful as the carpet is, it would have been so much nicer with hardwood floors.

The kitchen matches the style of the home with clean, contemporary lines and shows off the beautiful woodwork.

Oddly enough I love the concrete ceilings.

This condo was staged a little better and I prefer the hardwood floors to the carpet in the previous condo. The simple cut wood artwork on the walls is interesting.

And of course the view. You just can't go wrong with a view of water!
