Living Room Towards Piano

Removing a powder room that bisected the main floor created one large living room.

See details on the following slides.

Bar Area

The living room’s bar area is defined by an antique French frieze fragment repurposed as a mirror frame. The radial arrangement of four wing chairs creates instant coziness.

Living Room Details

Artwork and oddities find a home on an antique Chinese pedestal table. A statue of a head from Thailand lends a dose of zen to the living room.

Dining Room

Zinc 18th-century Portuguese finials are presented as sculpture on stone pedestals in the dining room, where mirrored doors increase the brightness. Antique orchid pots and candlesticks adorn an intimate pair of custom tables. The custom open-grid wall permits a peek into the living room, where 19th-century zinc capital molds crown custom chests.

Hallway Table

The hallway’s marble-and-gilt 18th-century Italian table, purchased when I. Magnin closed in San Francisco, is flanked by 18th-century shield-back chairs. The 1930s mirror is French.

Kitchen

The kitchen’s sleek concrete countertops and linear architecture are softened by a collection of Vietnamese plates on the wall, vintage tole trays, and spiraling topiaries.

Kitchen Towards Range

A stainless-steel backsplash brings industrial-style modernity to the stove wall.

Kitchen

The streamlined cabinets designed by Henry receive a subtle dose of richness with a strié finish.

Kitchen Details

Organization is mandatory with stainless-steel open shelving. A colorful terra-cotta ram oversees all.

 

Exterior

A pair of old Portland street lamps flank the entry.

Den

The den’s high ceilings allow for dramatic decorating with oversize accessories and art. “High ceilings—anything over 8 feet—create a sense of spaciousness,” designer and homeowner Henry Brown explains. Even when square footage is limited, the lofty altitude will expand breathing room for a more comfortable environment.

See more from this room on the following slide.

Den Sitting Area

An antique Asian side table and curious artwork by Jeff Bertoncino inspire creativity in the den’s sitting area.

 

Den Daybed

The den doubles as another guest room that features a daybed plus comfortable seating and bookshelves. Monkey prints above the daybed add a touch of playfulness to the room’s quiet palette.

Guest Bedroom

Sisal carpet and corals on the window ledge create an organic feel in a guest room. A masculine color scheme creates a subtle yet sophisticated retreat for visitors.

Master Bath

Natural light flows freely through the bathroom, where marble and glass combine to create an indulgent spa-like atmosphere. The shower features a glass wall, which provides breathtaking views of their stunningly serene Oregon setting.

 

Master Bedroom

The symmetrically composed master bedrooms features twin swing-arm sconces for bedtime reading and a tall, upholstered headboard.
