Spring 2017 Issue Of Windermere Living Magazine

The Spring 2017 issue of Windermere Living is fabulous! This is the first issue of Windermere Living featuring homes from around the Western United States. Since Windermere Real Estate is a regional real estate company, with over 300 offices spread across 10 states, it makes perfect sense to broaden the scope of Windermere Living from the Pacific Northwest to all the Western states where we have offices.

I’m so honored to be featured in this issue, on pages 28 & 29. My feature includes 6 of the properties I sold in recent months. My featured properties include both buyer represented and seller represented homes.

I hope you enjoy the latest issue of Windermere Living as much as I have. If you would like to have your own copy of this magazine, please send me an email at kathryn@windermere.com.

Seattle Maison Magazine: Spring 2017 Issue!

I know I say this just about every time a new Seattle Maison debuts, but I think the Spring 2016 issue just may be the BEST version yet! I love, LOVE the fresh topics, and this issue features a spotlight on my favorite stomping grounds around Mercer Island!

Bold colors, geometric patterns, splashes of jewel tones and vibrant blues – these trends are hot right now. In the article, Looking On The Bright Side, you’ll get the scoop on how to incorporate over-sized art pieces, wall paper, and splashy accent pieces into your current décor. I’ve been drooling over all the photo examples in the article. Oh my!

Safer, Cleaner Air

The March/April issue also includes a fabulous article featuring 7 plants that look beautiful in your home and will help purify the air. Formaldehyde is one VOC producing chemical that is commonly found in household products, building products, and furniture. It’s also one of the toughest to dispel from your abode. The 7 plants discussed in the article not only purify air of a variety of toxic chemicals, they are all champs at removing Formaldehyde emissions.

As always, Seattle Maison includes local housing market stats, to keep you in the loop on our red-hot, fast-paced real estate landscape.

Rain, Rain Go Away…

March has definitely been a lion so far – wet, rainy and cold. Let’s hope that the second part of these saying – out like a lamb – arrives soon! I’m definitely looking forward to warmer days, gentle spring breezes off the lake, and sunshine! Until then – delve into the wonder of color within your home and dabble with some the techniques shared in the pages of Seattle Maison magazine!

January/February 2017 Issue of Seattle Maison: renew, refresh, and rejuvenate!

The January/February 2017 issue of Seattle Maison is all about renew, refresh, and rejuvenate!

There are some fabulous images that demonstrate all the fun, beautiful ways you can work the Pantone color of the year, Greenery, into your home décor. On page are perfect pairing with Greenery, everything from a monotone look to a retro vibe to the cool tones reminiscent of a winter’s night. Lovely!

If decluttering is one of your New Year resolutions, check out the article on pages 8-10 to get the skinny on how to best recycle those old electronics. You can start planning your Seattle area Valentine’s Day date night with the article Cupid’s Cuisine on pages 13 and 14.

There is so much more in this wonderful issue – planning a tropical get-away for some much needed R&R, special touches to add vintage charm to your home, and of course some King County real estate statistics to keep you informed.

I hope you enjoy the first Seattle Maison issue of 2017 as much as I do. If you would like to the one of the first to get your own issue in your inbox, please send an email to kathryn@windermere.com and I’ll add you to the mailing list for the next issue.  And for now, you can read the whole January/February issue right here!

Seattle Maison Magazine: The Holiday Happenings Issue

CoverSeattleMaison_NovDecThe Holiday Happenings issue of Seattle Maison is quite special! I think this is my favorite issue of 2016. Articles cover interesting holiday topics like The PNB’s The NutCracker by the numbers (guess how much snow is used in the Act 1 snow scene!), how to care for your pets during the hustle and bustle of the season, and on-trend gifts priced at $50 or less. There’s a guide to fun holiday events occurring around the Puget Sound Region. There is even an informative article discussing why making a home purchase during the holiday season can be a boon for buyers.

I hope you have been enjoying Seattle Maison magazine. I look forward to sharing it with you during 2017. If you would like to be the first to read it, send me an email at kathryn@windermere.com and I’ll subscribe you Seattle Maison for next year. Cheers!
