Design: Outdoor Living
WINNER: Arkitek: Design & Architecture
Navigating a steep site, this project optimizes outdoor space, seamlessly integrating a dining pergola, water feature, lounge and hidden hot tub into a compact patio.

Interior Design: Bath
WINNER: Schulz Design Consulting
This complete transformation of a dated primary bathroom into a modern spa oasis includes a freestanding tub adorned with a Carrara marble surround and a captivating double-entry shower. The custom rift white oak vanity is complemented by a stylish painted-wood backsplash wall.
Interior Design: Kitchen
WINNER: Kelly McDougall Design
The owners’ previously remodeled 1971 home was dark and dated. They desired an open and usable kitchen that felt more inviting for their family of four. The new floor plan reconfigured the kitchen for a better work flow and use of the space, relocating the existing pantry and laundry room while showcasing the pantry design with an arched entryway.
Interior Design: Other
WINNER: Cozy in Love Spaces
The Wilshire Living Room and Chapman Entryway were designed cohesively to provide a PNW family a cozy space. The neutral color palette pops with the French gray custom built-in as the focal point. Traditional, Victorian and Parisian touches were brought together with mixed textiles including leather, wood, brass and velvet.

The Big Fir residence blends into the landscape of a newly planted vineyard, giving the retired clients a chance to enjoy the literal fruits of their labor.
