“Colorful Kitchen and Sophisticated Bathroom Remodel in Capitol Hill Highrise Condo”

“Belltown Design transformed my condo from dark and dated to bright and contemporary."

“Paula McHugh and Robbie Liddane worked tirelessly to transform my condo from dark and dated to bright and contemporary.  I told them I wanted to completely flip the space and they accomplished it with professionalism and attention to every detail.  Every surface of my two bedroom two bathroom condo and all furnishings were replaced -including an extensive electrical overhaul and reconfigured kitchen.  Paula's professional contacts/resources went above and beyond my expectations from window coverings, wallpaper hanging, and custom furnishings.  I wanted to expand my vision and Paula guided me with confidence and flexibility.  I recommend Belltown Design for any interior  design project.”

First Hill Plaza is one of Seattle’s iconic high-rise residences, 33 stories built in 1982 on Capitol Hill, includes enviable amenities such as concierge, swimming pool and tennis courts. Our client was eager to give new life to this condominium, which was tired, dark, and lacking in vitality, so we fully remodeled the space. We retained the original layout after exploring several options while fully remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms. We installed new Ash wood flooring, created a unique interior paint color scheme, carefully curated wall papers and tile patterns, and redesigned the lighting. New window treatments were also in our work scope, as well as custom upholstered cushions, bedding, and furnishings throughout. Essential to this interior is that it feel light, sophisticated, and fun, without shying away from color and re-invigorating this condo with playful pops of color throughout!
