Sneak Peek: Caitlin Wilson Design’s Oregon Project

by anne

We’ve already been fortunate to peek inside Caitlin Wilson’s Philadelphia home (and office), but today we have a special look inside one of Caitlin’s recent projects. The home sits on a lakefront ranch in southern Oregon. It’s actually the second home to a pair of hardworking, fun grandparents from San Francisco who love to host their ever-growing family and many friends. Construction began in 2009, and the project was completed in late 2011. The home’s style is refined rustic retreat, and the goal was to make it feel masculine yet playful, fresh and sophisticated while embracing classic elements of the clients’ taste to create a timeless but unique space. Many thanks to Caitlin, Rachel and Ashlee Raubach for the beautiful photos! — Anne

Suggested For You


  • Not surprising that this Philly gal has come up with yet another gorgeous home design! It’s so chic, yet totally different than her own home. Great to see some versatility! I also love the deer skull motif that’s been subtly worked in throughout the home. It’s so cheerful and gorgeous, and not overly feminine!

  • I love this house – it has the exact atmosphere I would go for if it wouldn’t look silly in an old Dutch village dwelling. :-)
    By the way, I can’t pin image #10 (the black bed, gorgeous). It registers as a broken image. It only happens with that particular image though, and I saw that the same thing had happened to several people…..

  • While I like this home, I feel like the balance between feminine and masculine is won over by feminine. Maybe I need to see more photos? The deer skull in almost every photo is one of the only masculine things about most of the rooms. Otherwise it feels pretty feminine to me.

  • I love the look of this home. It is difficult to put words to the style…relaxed, current yet old and new. Great touches of color. I would like to know the material used for the floor in the second bath, if possible. I love the look. Thanks for sharing!

  • Love this! I also love Caitlin’s home! After looking at it again, I am super curious about the markets in Dubai -which ones?!? I live in Abu Dhabi and would love to know her shopping spots!

  • this is my dream home, from the color of the kid’s twin bed to those corals and pinks and whites. What an amazing showcase! I’m quite a fan of Cait’s design.

  • Not my dream house! I really don’t get the current vogue to celebrate dead animal heads. There is nothing glorious or aesthetically pleasing about a decapitated Bambi. It’s kind of grotesque.

  • What a BEAUTIFUL home! Where do I find all of the mounted antlers that you have in all the rooms? I love the look!

  • Love the color pallett here, can anyone help me identify the fabrics in the last photo? especially the aztec looking fabric. TIA

  • I am from Oregon and was wondering what town or city this home is in. It is so nice- I really love the rustic touches that don’t feel cliche.
