Last October we threw a party. Art, floral, architecture, textiles, furniture, cheese, music & a killer sunset view of Puget Sound gave us good reason. Plus, a Madron tree with true grandeur stands just next door in Kinnear Park.

Piano Nobile, a husband & wife design team, had completed a rooftop patio + Semaphore Glass House project at a home in west Queen Anne. Fruitsuper Design, L & G Studio, Piano Nobile, Standard Socket and July Floral all contributed & styled their wares. The homeowner curated a live musical performance and invited Creative Advantage along to tell the party goers about their programs.






Flowers, flowers. Flowers.



We collaborated on placing select furnishings, light fixtures, living plant props & floral throughout the various seating areas.

The Glass House will serve as a solarium, collecting heat from the day for tender plants or for cozying up in the middle of a winter storm. I especially love the sharp angles of the structure, the track sliding door out to the patio and the orientation facing west. At the push of a button, a window-clad garage door motors horizontally to close off the glass room from the rest of the house below. You have to see it, to believe it. And did I mention the view yet?

Party on Seattle!
