Northwest Home: A Mod Mix

The latest issue of our magazine about home design, architecture and decor.
FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

The latest issue of Northwest Home (found inside the January issue of Seattle magazine) showcases a bevy of hot kitchen islands (including cool custom works and in-store options.) Columnist John Stevens shows us how to create a swank speakeasy-style cocktail lounge at home. Plus, our Home of the Month, which stars an island stand-out wearing Persian granite, is an intriguing bit of mod suburban infill on Kirkland's waterfront (tour it, 1/20).
