if i had the money to hire an interior designer, jessica helgerson would be at the top of my wish-list. her portland-based interior design firm always creates the most serene, welcoming environments and i’m still swooning over this incredible home she shared with us last year. so i was thrilled to hear from jessica about her latest project, a glamorous portland four-square. jessica and her team completed remodeled a turn of the century, south east portland home by gutting a small and disfunctional kitchen, back pantry and mud room to create a large and airy kitchen. they also added box beams to the dining room, separated the entry from the living room with deep cased opening, added a mantle, built-in shelves, and two windows at the fireplace, and a second window, and a wood ceiling and wainscoting to the upstairs bathroom. i just love the way jessica plays with light and dark so well- the bright white walls, dark wooden trim and pops of green everywhere make me instantly want to move in. there are also beautiful glass pieces by artist andy paiko incorporated throughout the home. want to see more of the home? just click “read more” at the bottom of the post for the rest of the home photos and full-sized images after the jump. thank you to jessica for sharing this home with us, and to photographer lincoln barbour for sharing these shots.
[ps: sarah is still traveling abroad this week and will be back with another weeder’s digest. apologies for the time out, but hard working girls like her definitely deserve a week off every now and then]
