Could This Seattle Home Really be 'the Perfect Rental?'

When interior designer Sara Knowles and chef Logan Cox were first hunting around Seattle for a place to live, this 1924 Craftsman-style house immediately caught the couple's eye, as it had newly been remodeled by the landlords and offered a pristine "blank canvas," something of a rarity when it comes to old homes that have hosted many a tenant. Dubbed the "perfect rental" by Design Sponge for this reason—and probably also due to Sara's eclectic style—the cozy but spacious place now offers an assortment of treasured antiques, like the pine farm dining table, mixed with Craigslist-scored couches, thrift store accessories, and even a few low-end Ikea piece thrown in. The duo's favorite details in the new home? A "corner of curiosities" used to display various travel finds, and a special area devoted to creative projects. "After years of apartment living, I feel so lucky to have a space to store supplies and a quiet spot to craft and write snail mail," says Sarah. "This room gets a ton of natural light so it's an inspiring place to spend time." Take a look below, and determine the levels of perfection.
