Today, we’re looking at a remodel of a 1950’s ranch in Portland Hills.
I have run across a few house tours of work done by Jessica Helgerson before and always been very impressed. She and her team have had several houses featured in places like Atomic Ranch and Design*Sponge as well as winning multiple awards for creative, sustainable, and budget-conscious design.
Today’s post features one of her projects involving the remodel of a 1950’s ranch Southwest of Portland. The site states that the house is being done in two phases and what we have seen here is just the first phase. Based on what is shown here, I cannot wait to see what they do with the rest of the house. Every room shown in this house is perfectly put together (and amazingly photographed too I might add). It has a very warm and inviting feel with a base of mid-century modern styling. The kitchen is a must see as well, featuring a very nicely done white design that is balanced with the warmth of wood keeping it from being too sterile and cold like many white kitchens can be.
Another reason I focused on this particular project is that they added a little breakfast bar / coffee bar seating area off of the kitchen. This is something we have been seriously considering, and their setup is very similar to what I envisioned so it served as a great visual inspiration of what could be done. I hope you enjoy and please remember to check the whole house out on her website:
