Fully reinvented and re-imagined, we took a poor example of a Cape Cod style home here in Portland and transformed it into something original.
For the exterior, we were influenced by English/Tudor and even Storybook revival styles but kept the look clean and modern with monochromatic color and simple lines. The reclaimed wood awning added dimension to the look and kept it from becoming too serious.
Influenced by the shapes and patterns of Morocco and even the Southwest, the interior took on a whole different personality than from the outside. We were able to unify both areas of the home with color and material usage. The result was harmonious. Light walls and floors were the foundation of the design while unlacquered brass, tile and lighting were the finishing touches. The aged wood and neutral colors throughout grounded it all.
Behind the scenes, we fully rearranged the layout to work for the footprint of the home while paying special attention to the way modern families live. That meant opening up some walls for flow and entertaining while keeping other spaces modest and cozy. The result was a unique home that nods to both traditional and modern design and ways of living.
