Smitten with Seattle

When our friends decided to get married just outside of Seattle, I was thrilled to have an excuse to finally visit the famously rainy city.  I had never been, but the allure of the first Starbucks, Sur la Table and Pike Place Market were enough to have me packing my rain coat weeks before the big day.  As a designer, I was ecstatic that the city was even better than I had imagined and I couldn’t get enough of the endless historic brick buildings, cobblestone alleyways, fresh seafood and flowers, and countless design shops scattered around town.  I came back to LA completely refreshed, inspired and with an overwhelming desire to return to Seattle someday soon.

Tulips for days at Pike Place Market.

More tulips and sweet lilacs… rare in LA and a faint reminder of home with the world famous Beecher’s in the background.

Seafood temptations at Pike Place Market.

Some of the best salsa I’ve ever tasted.

Fresh fruit and rhubarb… a sweet reminder of my Grandma’s famous rhubarb pie.

El Mercado Latino rivals any Mexican food market in SoCal.

Gallery wall and green glass inspiration at Watson Kennedy (favorite store EVER)!

I have been dying to stock our bar with flavorful mixers and vintage champagne coupes since stumbling upon this display also at Watson Kennedy.

  1. Hi Meg, Megan here – J’s “sister”. I just found your blog and am loving it! I am severely lacking in the design department. I wish I had known you two were in Seattle! It was probably a short trip packed with activities, but I would have loved to see J and meet you. Let us know next time you’re in town. (And just FYI, September is about the best time ever to be in Seattle!)

  2. Hi Megan! So bummed we didn’t get together while we were there! I would have loved to have met you! I will definitely let you know when we’re there next… hopefully soon :-) I love Seattle!
