When your job as a sports executive for a Seattle pro team equals lots of travel, where do you live? and how does it work? After moving to Seattle, my clients spent time searching for a suitable condo for their lifestyle. During the sports season, they attend every game which means lots of travel.
The condo they located and purchased was a perfect solution with easy access to the city, airport, work and a quiet neighborhood. So they set about making it work for their lifestyle of entertaining, sports viewing and travel.
Our firm updated the color palette and then began exploring flexible furniture options for smaller and larger group occasions. Small seats in the form of ottomans are easy to pull into the conversation or viewing range. Even before adding the dining chairs, there are eight seats.
The nature of the job means a flatscreen is much more important. For this reason, I positioned the flatscreen above a long console with a display shelf below and drawers. All the necessary components were readily moved into the adjacent closet for a clean appearance. And those small seats become a variation of stadium seating when friends and family gather to watch a sports event.
As a sidenote, the color scheme was the result of my client sharing a favorite dress as an inspiration. So the custom area rugs I designed along with fabrics were a nod to that favorite dress.
This easy open plan Seattle condo design readily moves into entertaining for friends or a quiet evening for the two of them. Likewise, leaving for a sports weekend is easy too. With a second home in the Southeast, adapting to cross country living makes this Seattle urban condo well suited to my clients.
