When John and Jan Drinkard moved out of their large house on Mercer Island, they were ready for change. With their daughters grown up and leaving the nest, they decided to buy in the brand new 1521 building on Second Avenue in downtown Seattle. They moved into a generous 2000 sq/ft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with stunning 180+ degree views of Puget Sound, the Space Needle, and fascinating layers of city life below.
Their style also did a 180. Their previous home was decorated with more of Jan’s tastes; it was on the traditional side, full of color, pattern, and florals. For their new condo, it was John’s turn; he wanted the style to be very contemporary with hardly any ornamentation or detail. The minimalist approach turned out to be a perfect solution for this modern space. Clean lines and subtle textures in the interior leave the view as the uncontested main attraction.
