Lovely Modern House Interior // Jessica Helgerson


The clients for this project were a young family with a very modern aesthetic. The trick was to take their hundred-year-old Northwest Portland house and make it feel fresh and current.

A palette of whites and cool grays creates both continuity and contrast throughout the home, particularly through our selection of wall colors, e.g. a light-gray entry that leads to a medium-gray living room and a dramatically dark-gray dining room and library. Other creative surface treatments include laser-cut mirrors, whose organic shapes dance along the entry walls, reflecting surprising snippets of the interior. The house is now fresh, bright, functional, and contemporary, while remaining true to itself.

The project was honored with the 2011 Pacific Northwest Design Award for Best Residential Project Under $400,000.
