Seattle Designer Gives Her Tudor a Makeover

When Seattle Designer Judy Tall finalized her divorce, she packed up her belongings in Mercer Island and began the move to her newly purchased Tudor in Denny Blaine. According to the Seattle Times, she fell in love with the neighborhood and her master bedroom with an abundance of natural light, but wasn’t 100% sold on the rest of the place. She waited a year before remodeling, and says that “you have to know how you live in a house, and what works and what doesn’t.”

Before Tall became an interior designer she was an acupuncturist, and tries to brings elements of healing into play with her design concepts. She told the Times that whether you’re moving into a new space, or someone recently moved out or in, there are several emotions that come into play when redesigning or remodeling your home. Tall said that a large portion of her clientele chooses to remodel because they’re going through a life transition, and that’s just what she was going through when she decided to redo her home in Denny Blaine. From her choice in tranquil paint colors, to the picture rail below the coved ceiling, Tall tried to make each and every room in the place more cozy and comfortable for her to live in. She believes that every change serves a purpose, and should bring great joy to a living space. For more information about her Tudor design, visit the Seattle Times.

Construction on East Harrison Closes Street for Summer

Last week, Seattle Public Utilities began construction  of local sewers and storm water improvements and work will close a section of Harrison Street between 30th and 31st off for the next several months. Harrison which is the street that runs along the south side of Bush is favorite street for Denny Blaine residents to take home.  Given the extent of the construction that is needed, work is scheduled to be completed in October, and work hours are scheduled typically between 7:30am-6:00pm, Mon-Fri.  Traffic will be detoured off of E. Harrison St between 30th and 31st for the duration of the construction work. Pedestrian access will be permitted during construction, please be aware of the traffic congestion this may cause for the duration of the summer!

Construction will include a 35,000 gallon underground storm water storage tank and a new 18″ combined sewer pipeline on East Harrison Street between 30th and 31st Avenue East. This work will greatly reduce the potential for sewer backups and storm water flooding along 31st between E. John St and E. Republican St, an area experiencing heavy problems.
