Tri Pointe Homes Collaborates with Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk on Seattle-Area Community

Tri Pointe Homes recently unveiled Woodlands Reserve, a new 31-home community in Kirkland, Washington, a lakeside Seattle suburb that is home to major employers like Google and Tableau.

Interior design expert and television host Bobby Berk designed, finished, and staged the interiors of two model homes for Woodlands Reserve. His two design schemes displayed in the model homes, “Midcentury Modern” and “Serene Scandinavian,” helped inspire Tri Pointe’s complementary design schemes, “Upscale Farmhouse” and “Zen Modern.”

“Innovation is in our DNA, so it felt like a natural fit for Tri Pointe to be the first builder to make Bobby Berk’s inspired designs available to Seattle-area home buyers,” says Ken Krivanec, president of Tri Pointe Homes Washington. “From a fantastic location in the high-demand Juanita neighborhood, to stunning interiors and home layouts designed for how people live today, Woodlands Reserve is the whole package.”

Designed with the millennial demographic in mind, the homes offer spacious plans with flexible design options that will appeal to growing families and professionals alike.

The serene palette of colors and materials, and nods to nature throughout, underscore the natural beauty of the local area. Drawing on midcentury and Scandinavian influences, each model offers design details that exemplify the warm, minimalist appeal of the Bobby Berk aesthetic.

“With Mount Rainier, national parks, and alpine lakes all within reach, Greater Seattle’s natural abundance makes it a hot spot for all things outdoors and recreation,” says Berk. “When designing Woodlands Reserve, Kirkland’s latest new-home community, I drew inspiration from both the great outdoors and the midcentury modern aesthetic.”

The community neighbors the Lake Washington waterfront with skyline views; connects to a network of parks, hiking trails, and bike paths; and is a quick commute to downtown Seattle and the nearby school district.
