The second home for a couple based in L.A., this two-story penthouse in Seattle easily reflects their edgy tastes. In the entry hall, for example, 5’ long chainmaille chandeliers make quite the impact, while a photo set of Bob Marley offers a glimpse of the rare art that's featured across the home.
When the owner of a run-down, century-old row house near D.C.'s Union Market asked Kerra Michele Huerta to help renovate their space, the designer leapt at the chance to get creative. After the construction crew dug out the basement to create a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a full kitchen for guests, Huerta stepped into the entryway and used remnants of unsalvageable pine floors to design a "welcome mat" inlay in the new foyer. The coat rack was repurposed too; though it seems right at home next to the bright red art, it's actually comprised of old pipes.
Lively wall hangings and a bright green and white patterned area rug greet guests the moment they set foot in this neutral entryway. A wooden front door adds a rustic touch, while an antique white dresser acts as a table for decorative vases and a lamp.
Floating wood shelves on a wall-mounted mirror add depth to this eclectic wet bar. A cluster of glass-blown pendants illuminate the granite countertops, while black barstools cozy up to the raised bar with purple mosaic tile detail.
This hall features a rustic wood bench with black and white throw pillows and a colorful modern painting hanging above. White wood plank walls lead the way to a doorway that frames a glimpse of the adjacent home office.

Charged with creating a playroom for her clients' daughters, SuzAnn Kletzien set out to design a multipurpose space for play, study and possible sleepovers.
