Hometown hero Renee Erickson continues to expand her popular Capitol Hill doughnut and coffee shop, General Porpoise, recently in Amazon in South Lake Union, and now in Pioneer Square.
General Porpoise, known for its luscious sugar-coated doughnuts oozing with fillings like lemon curd, strawberry rhubarb jam, and vanilla custard, recently opened at 401 1st Ave. S in the Merrill Building, at the corner of 1st Ave. S and S Jackson St. With 30 seats, the shop will serve the pastries fans have come to know and love. The new shop’s next-door neighbor is Flora and Henri, the home of bespoke products for children, women, and home, whose bright, airy, whimsical aesthetic perfectly suits Erickson’s Sea Creatures group and the duo’s design firm, Price Erickson. The cafe is gorgeous with soaring, large-timber ceilings, white brick walls against bright magenta accents, a meeting room, and a marching troop of papered-elephant lanterns by local artist Jeffry Mitchell, as well as massive windows to let in light and show off the interior. When in Seattle, pay a visit.

Loving this beautiful blush trend for a kids room. Blush has a softness, a warmth and calmness all in one which is so perfect for a kids room. Blush mixes well with lots of colors, but works best with monochromes, greys and greens. Alternatively, the wall to wall blush color is perfect for a bedroom.
Here are some more blush rooms that showcases beautiful blush:
If not an all blush room, white and blush make a great combination too. But it doesn’t have to be blush walls with white decorations. Instead, use a white backdrop with lots and lots of blush decor from rugs to baskets to bedding and more. And the white background makes these blush colored decorations pop even more.
Add some fun and make it a whimsical blush room. The color blush lends itself to so many moods and styles of room. Here blush is complemented with touches of green which is another colour combo that works so well. Loving the moody, magical feel that all the blush decorations help create.
Blush and grey feels like it’s a match made in heaven! It doesn’t matter what shade of grey you use, from lightest to darkest, it just works so well with blush. Both colors are calming and warm so, together they create a wonderful, inviting space for kids.
An all blush room can look super stunning by mixing different shades of blush from the palest to much darker tones. The combination of the soft blush bedding against the dark wall – just beautiful.
Architect Andreas Martin-Löf resides in one of the stunning Stockholm residences developed with Oscar Properties. The Lyceum developments are the result of an incredible transformation of the historical university buildings into modern and exclusive homes. Andreas’ work and home is featured in My Residence (the international bookazine by Residence magazine), and interestingly, he has become known not only for transforming culturally and historically valuable buildings in Stockholm for the high end market, but also for renewing the quality of Stockholm’s low-cost housing that is so essential in large cities. Here’s a look inside his beautiful home.
Specially designed in laboratory green, the kitchen is by Swedish cabinet-makers Kvänum. Stools in teak and iron are by Pierre Jeanneret and the pedestal is by Matti Carlson, custom-designed for Martin-Löf’s home. The 1950s style sofa in the living room has been upholstered in specially made fabric by Astrid Textiles, while the armchairs and Kangaroo chairs in teak and rattan are also by Pierre Jeanneret. The table is Travertine and the lamps in this room and the dining area are designed by Andreas Martin-Löf Arkitekter, as part of their Objects Collection.
CREATING A BEDROOM HAVEN WITH WHITE WALLS + WARM NEUTRALS
Planning a white bedroom but don’t want it to feel sterile? The white walls can feel a little boring and stale – inject a bit more warmth. Fabrics, such a linen headboard can make a big difference to the space, injecting texture and contrast. Team white with neutral elements such as warm wood and linen bedding, especially lovely when the sun is streaming in through windows. These beautiful bedrooms and retreats provide some great ideas for creating a neutral bedroom haven all year round.
