My Vineyard Home

Welcome to Lake Chelan and Amos Rome Vineyards!  When we sold our big house in Seattle, we bought and remodeled a condo in Edmonds and also bought some land in Eastern Washington to start our retirement dream!  We have about 12 acres of Merlot, Cab Franc, Pinot Noir and Malbec planted and in the middle of the vineyard, we built a huge garage with a 2 bed/2 bath unit above.  We wanted something open so we could host a lot of people and share the beauty of the area.

I jumped on the gray and white kitchen bandwagon and love it!  The cabinets are two tone- darker Cityscape (SW7067) on the lower and lighter Argos (SW7065) above.  Large scale white subway tile and medium brown hardwood floors all blend together beautifully with Desert Gold granite countertops.  Color is supplied by my Fiestaware dishes in multiple colors!  It was interesting to design and plan around all the furniture I already had which we brought from our Seattle home. Walls and ceilings are Wool Skein (SW6148) with Arcade White (SW7100) trim.

Our great room flows right from the kitchen with a large table and black granite bar and into the seating area.  We had dark red leather furniture but wanted to add a bit more color so ended up choosing Riverway (SW6222) in the livingroom.

Also had to spray paint and recover our old chairs! A bit hard to tell in these photos but metal is now grayer and the fabric also has quite a bit of gray going through it.Master bed and bath are also in the gray theme with Intellectual Gray (SW7045) which looks more green.  Bath cabinets are the same light gray as the kitchen with left over Lennon granite from our Edmonds condo!

Guest bath is also the same light gray kitchen cabinet color with the same kitchen granite.  Wall color in guest bed and bath is Upward (SW6239) which looks more blue.I would love to hear what you all think of all the colors I have chosen – a bit of a crazy mixture but with all the windows and sunlight we get here, it seems to work.  Still a work in progress as I have many bare walls that need to be addressed…..

Removing built-ins

When we bought our condo, every room had built-ins.  To me, it just made the spaces seem smaller.  So we set out to remove them all and we really liked how it all turned out!  This was the master bedroom – we removed the shelves and painted the accent wall Benjamin Moore Driftwood.

The guest room built-in had to go as well. 

Accent wall is Benjamin Moore Desert Twilight.

This was the den.  We removed the shelving and the track lighting.  We painted the walls Benjamin Moore Shelbourne Buff and added can lights.

The hallway had a glass display case and track lighting.  When we removed this, we were able to add a hall closet off to the left.

The dining area was the biggest change.  We removed the built-in and changed the hexagon tray ceiling to square to modernize it.  We also added wood trim and lighting to warm up the space, and hung a chandelier.  We repeated this wood trim where the crown moulding was in the living room with added hidden lighting.  We are really happy with how this turned out and how it compliments our furniture much better!  Accent paint is Benjamin Moore Kingsport Gray.

Master bath for two

The old master bath was cut up into small pieces and only had one sink…even though there was plenty of counter space.  We wanted to open it up and make it feel larger without actually adding any square footage.  We decided to demolish the wall between the shower and toilet and add glass instead.  This allowed us to make a larger shower stall as well.

By using the accent mosaic horizontally, your eye is drawn side to side, to make it appear larger.  The floor tiles flow right up the wall as well.

We added the mosaic tile to frame the mirror and even though there is only one sink, there are two faucets.  The hanging glass pendants are like jewelry in the space!

Opening up the Kitchen

The old kitchen was closed off and not well thought out.  When you opened the dishwasher, you could not get into the cabinets above or next to it for unloading.  Plus, the corner area was not accessible at all.  With the dropped ceiling and half wall, it felt a bit like a cave.

By moving the dishwasher to the other side of the sink, I was able to create a corner lazy susan and have access to all cabinets.  It meant I had to off-set my sink a bit so it is not directly under the window but by doing a single sink, it is less noticeable.  Also, by putting a power outlet strip under the cabinets, I didn’t have to break up the backsplash tile.

By dropping the half wall and extending the counter, the space feels more open to the living area and we created an eating bar as well.

My easiest “fix”

This was the guest bath when we bought our condo.  Everything was in really good shape, just out-dated.  But I didn’t want to put a lot of money into something that wasn’t used as often, so decided to try to keep the toilet, tub and all that perfectly good white tile. 

By adding accent tile and Benjamin Moore Sea Haze paint, it brings a new look to the existing space.  Walnut cabinets and a new sink and granite counter brought warmth and texture as well.
