Yakima Residence for Doug Rasar

Seattle's "Bummer Summer" ho-hum blah-blah weather has been taking it's toll on my emotional state so it was a treat to make the quick jaunt east over the mountains and in to the perpetual sunshine of beautiful Yakima Valley for two days to photograph an impressive remodel by interior designer Doug Rasar and architects Sullivan Conard and KDF.

The home is sited with views out over the Yakima Valley and the new landscaping features a massive water feature of large stepped reflecting pools that lead to gardens and outdoor patios.

The challenge was to capture the scale of the grand spaces while also maintaining the intimate feel of the smaller living areas.
