It’s hard to say it more simply than this: Jessica Helgerson is my favorite interior designer. Everything she touches is perfect for me, from retail to residential. And she’s a total sweetheart to boot. She and her team at JHID in Portland just finished designing the interior of a great new Mexican restaurant, Corazón. I love how earthy and laid back the space feels while still being cool and sophisticated. It’s a look that Jessica does so well, and she’s done a great job of incorporating natural materials and decorative elements, too. I love the manila ropes and tile work, but the ombre wooden chairs tug at my heartstrings. I’m definitely going to check this out in person this summer, but in the meantime, you can see more of this space on Jessica’s website. xo, grace
