The Story

Homes built in the 1920s and 1930s have an abundance of character, but sometimes require a little reworking to create spaces for the way in which we live in today's world. The home owners contacted Jason after seeing a featured project in an Alaska Airlines Inflight magazine article on interior design trends (see the Media page to read the article). Phase 1 of the remodel involved creating a "living bedroom" -  a master suite as a self-contained space with a spacious master bathroom, functional walk-in closet and bedroom with enough room for an extra seating area. To accomplish this goal, we moved a wall about three feet to increase the overall size of the bedroom and bathroom area. Resulting space is layered with rich colors, beautiful materials and artwork to delight the senses. Because this couple are art aficionados, we were deliberate in our lighting design, creating individual moments throughout the space for treasured pieces. A quaint seating area looks out through double French doors onto the garden, providing a sense of space and connection to the outdoors.

Over the next year, Jason worked with the homeowners to transform the rest of the by updating colors, furnishings, fabrics, accessories and so on. Rich textures, patterns and materials are used throughout the home, including a black recycled polyester wall covering in the powder room, elegant white on silver wallpaper in a guest room and intricately detailed fabrics in the living room. The resulting design is elegant and sufficiently livable, and will serve this couple for years. This home was also featured in Oregon Home magazine. See the full spread here.
