Family finds Pioneer Square to be the fine life

Annie Strain wanted clean, uncluttered lines in her open kitchen and chose Corian for the countertops and cabinetry. The large monitor on the wall is both a TV and a computer so she can follow recipes on it. An island topped her wish list, and she loves that it has become a gathering place, a homework station, extra dining table and even a "family hot tub." Husband Jeff, daughter Madeleine and the bathing Jackson love it, too.
