Obsessed: Nikki and Kari's Seattle Apartment

My college friend Nikki and her sister Kari are two women who really do live "the good life" up in Seattle, Washington. Not only do they live stylishly (chocolate croissants for breakfast anyone?), but they work hard and play hard, and by play hard I mean they are always go, go, go, when it comes to doing one fun thing after another. What they're into is usually all over the place and that's what I love about them; during a December visit we went to the Kanye / Jay-Z show one night and drag queen superstar Dina Martina's Christmas show the next. Hello, perfect weekend!

They share an apartment in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood, and I'm always so impressed by the way their unique style comes through in their home. Whether it's an assortment of Mexican beer in the fridge, a colorful bouquet picked up from the Fremont Farmers' Market or a newly curated bedroom vignette that shows off one-of-a-kind art and sentimental treasures, they always stay true to themselves and it definitely shows.

Nikki gave me permission to snap these pictures below of their place while I was up there this past weekend. Sorry about the gloomy lighting in the photos, but that's true Seattle for you!

 I love their entry / desk area right when you walk inside. It's so functional but still so cute.

I'm totally obsessed with the "cucina" sign above the doorway.

The gold and white deer container is actually a set of super-stylish measuring cups!

A friend decorated their apartment with the papel picado banner as a cheerful reminder of their travels.

Turquoise and white ikat pillows add some "pop" to the neutral couch, and aren't those windows fantastic? 

Wall art made by Nikki!

Can't get enough of this colorful vignette in Nikki's bedroom 

Loving how personal this space is...

And that's "el final!"
