Usually bright red trim and lots of diagonal millwork might be difficult to pull together, but somehow here it all seems so innocent and charming. Notice the diagonal accents even on the shutters.
From bottom to top: good concrete forms, well spaced railings, double porch supports, and those sweet leaded windows all make this porch a standout.
The colors emphasise the materials nicely, even down to the shells at the base of the post.
The owner researched historical documents to get good guidelines for this smart refurbishment. The scale of this space is very inviting. The color story, gloss black trim on brick, is chic. The fenestration is superb, how exciting to see a well executed contemporary interpretation of the classic retail window scheme. The lighting is unobtrusive and appropriate. The signage is a pleasant accent. But the awning, WOW, it really brings this building to a higher level. What a pleasure to walk under this awning to shop. Phinney Ridge, Seattle, WA, USA
