This gorgeous Bellevue, WA remodel won designer Candace Nordquist Interiors the 2015 Chrysalis Award for the $500k to $1M category, along with builder Sockeye Homes. While the heart of the home is in the open plan kitchen/dining/living area, the focus is the ‘belle view’ that lies outside the wall of windows. White walls and light grey flooring help fill the space with light and are punctuated by darker, walnut-hued lower cabinetry in the kitchen. A modern Lucite coffee table and dining chairs provide interesting accents without detracting from the natural beauty outside.
A large island defines the beginning of the kitchen area with seating for up to eight. PentalQuartz countertops in Cotton White continue the white theme along with a white textured backsplash, and white upper cabinetry. Stainless steel appliances and fixtures, and three pendant lights finish the space. The tranquility and calming effect of the simple color palette truly make this home the perfect place to enjoy the view.
