This Modern Home design with Furniture Around It is designed by Jessica Helgerson.
This project is a complete remodel of a turn-of-the-century Southeast Portland four-square. The old space become more practical, glamour and cozy. A small kitchen with a back pantry become big and airy space. Several windows and built-in shelves were also added to make the space more practical. Woodwork throughout the house was done in a dark ebony as were the floors on the first floor. The furniture around the house was chose in the way to create eclectic blend of modern and ethnic styles. Some of the pieces were custom made locally: the sofa that fits into the bay window; the living room chairs which are cozily upholstered in sheepskin; the blown glass sculptures; and so on.
