NW NOB HILL HOUSE
FULL KITCHEN & PRIMARY BATH RENOVATION + FURNISHING
Nestled in the hills of the Alphabet District in NW Portland, our clients own a lovely family home. After an unfortunate flood, we were called in to help with a complete kitchen and primary bath renovation plus furnish the main level of home, including the entry, living room, dining room, and family room.
The kitchen features warm cherry wood cabinets, a beautiful quartzite countertop, a stunning Roll & Hill light fixture, Fireclay tile backsplash, Viking appliances and a living finish brass faucet from Rohl. We were excited to partner with Clarkbuilt for the construction and cabinet fabrication. A family room just off the kitchen allows for cozy, comfortable get-togethers. We designed a cushy built-in sofa in the family room for watching for lounging and TV watching, and a custom desk to hold games and art supplies. The clients had a large personal art collection that was highlighted extensively in the design, each piece holding a bit of family history or an interesting story.
The primary bath, which was the source of the flood, received an entirely new layout. We removed an existing tub/shower and replaced it with a custom double sink casework by Kula Solutions. New custom mirrors by Hufnagel Design Build plus Cedar & Moss sconces are layered on top of Fireclay tile to complete the vanity. Where the existing small single sink vanity once was is now a new walk-in shower complete with a glass surround.
Furnishing for the home included the main living area with an elegant blue velvet sofa and nesting marble coffee tables. We chose a comfortable leather wingback chair for reading and a dramatic and modern pendant to juxtapose the home's traditional architecture.
This project was unique primarily in its use of color. Wanting to combat the grey of Oregon winters, our clients invested in painting their walls before contracting our services. The colors they chose allowed us to explore new avenues and develop a truly special space. One can't help but feel cheerful visiting this lovely NW home.
