The Microsoft couple who hired a local designer to furnish the living room, kitchen, dining room and reading room in their new home in the prestigious Issaquah Highlands area wanted modern and minimalist, but they also wanted comfortable and homey.
Their wish was Bellevue designer Nichole Jacobson’s command. She owns Jacobson Interior Design.
“The home is modern but still has a sense of warmth which results from the selection of finishes and colors,” Jacobson said. “They attempted to incorporate existing furniture from their previous home that just didn’t work. The grandeur of the home designed by Scott Allen Architecture of Seattle demanded some very prominent pieces to help sculpt and define the various spaces of this open floor plan.”
She helped the homeowners pick out the perfect pieces for their 4,500-square-foot home that features vaulted ceilings with warm hemlock wood paneling and plenty of natural light. The owners with Norwegian heritage dubbed the results of their newly designed space as “Scandi-eclectic-modern.”
