One of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint has been sprucing up interiors and exteriors since 1945. The company has evolved over the years to keep up with the latest advancements in painting technology. Among the multi-hued fruits of this evolution are weather-ready exterior paints, whose modern formulas scoff at the elements and prove ideal for realistic yet unflattering outdoor murals of the neighbors. With more than 1,600 shades to choose from, painters will find it nearly impossible to settle, like a bowl of jello during an earthquake. Luckily, customers can take advantage of the handy virtual decorator to narrow their choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to which room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.

Featured in Spokane CDA Living as the city's most favored purveyor of tables, cabinets, living-room, and traditional furniture, Walker's has been replenishing sparse floors with quality furnishings for more than 30 years. Cover up a cumbersome oubliette or manhole with the Napa Collection's chocolate-brown sofa, or peruse the home office section to locate a more appropriate means of book storage than the milk crates or hollowed-out tauntauns of college days. Nearly all the furniture you'll test-drive in-store is actually in-stock, which means restless homeowners won’t have to sit on empty kegs, cable spools, or unemployed character actors disguised as divans whilst waiting for their precious cargo to arrive.
Oftentimes, hobbies are neglected when more serious work comes calling—like a career in clinical psychology. But for Alan Tower, it was the contrary, as he quit his practice to dedicate himself to a lifelong hobby that germinated as a mail-order nursery. Eight years later, he established Tower Perennial Gardens, and went on to serve as chair for the American Hosta Society convention and founder of the Spokane Hosta Society.
Today, Tower Perennial Gardens is home to thousands of varieties of plants, trees, and flowers, which spread across 8 scenic acres and originate from every continent except Antarctica—by decree of Santa Claus. Myriad display gardens showcase cacti, shade plants, and flowering trees to provide inspiration for green-thumbed visitors. But for non-DIY customers, Tower’s team of professionals enthusiastically offers its services to forge a lush landscape from scratch or restore a rundown garden to its former glory.
