Meet Kristin Myllenbeck, Seattle Mom and Cool Pool Maven

After spending the day with this Seattle mother/wardrobe stylist, it makes perfect sense that she decided high-style kiddie pools were her calling. Kristin Myllenbeck is a sartorialist with an unflappably sunny attitude. She launched Mylle last year, and her gorgeous inflatable pools have quickly become a coveted summer essential for design-minded folks. She also makes being a mom look like the most fun job in the world (along with running a cool pool biz) and hopes to eventually have at least four kiddos of her own splashing around in the yard. She’s well on her way—she and her boyfriend are currently parents to sweet 3-year-old Suvi (which means ‘Summer’ in Finnish) and are expecting their second, a boy, in a few months. Kristin shows us around her minimalist city pad in Seattle, and talks about everything from her current pregnancy cravings to why the best outfits are the ones she’ll be embarrassed by in the future. Click through the full tour and interview below, and prepare to be inspired!

    Wow! Where to start with this incredible barefoot momma? How about the first picture, with her gorgeous pedicure visible on her right toes and partial sole and the unbearably cute undersides of her left toes? That left big toe is beautiful beyond words! Picture #2, barefoot and pregnant. No words to describe the beauty and femininity. Picture #21, lovely long slender toes. The pedicure is impeccable. Picture #31, another beautiful shot of Kristin’s exquisite bare feet. I so love dark color pedicures, and black specifically.
