Pacific Northwest Style

I once lived in Seattle and learned a lot about Pacific Northwest style.  An influence of Japanese design can be seen in the often minimalist architecture, interiors, and clothing.  The art and design community in Seattle reflects the cloudy skies, and lush forests and rugged coastline.  The town of Mukilteo, Washington, is one of the towns that lines the Puget Sound. Our friend Lynda makes her home here, and her choice of Modern Robe fabrics reflects her Northwest lifestyle.


Lynda chose the long version of the Modern Robe, a good choice for cool and misty mornings.  This elegant salt-and-pepper print, in 100% cotton, has been described as "abundant white circles, as drawn on a chalkboard". The graphic print shows beautifully in this robe.  The surprising but delightful combination of the sash, in "Rhode Island Red", adds a dash of energy that we love.


The "Third In Line" design is by one of our favorite fabric designers: Marcia Derse.  The fabric combination worked out beautifully... and Lynda tells us that she loves her robe.
