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 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!
