Maybe you don't just want to be near the water, you actually want to be on the water. This is a floating home on Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. The photographer skillfully captured the lit-up Space Needle in the distance and the reflection of lights on the water, a vibrant illustration of the amazing blend of city plus nature that is Seattle.See more of this home Tell me about your dream home. Would it be any of these?
The roof deck is another common signature of houseboats. This modern beauty in Seattle benefits from being in the city but feels like a retreat.
1990s. Cell phones, personal computers and the Internet meant that we were all more "connected" to one another at the dawn of the information age. A center of this new age was Seattle, home to many of the tech companies that would come to dominate the economics of the decade. And you can't mention Seattle without mentioning grunge and a sense of isolation and alienation just when we were all becoming more connected.The colors of the decade included grays and a muted palette of reds, blues and greens and blues.
