Holly + Tony
Kitchen + Living/Dining Renovation
A SE Portland '60s ranch kitchen + great room are revamped for a family of five.
Frumpy at first glance, the house had an open plan and retro ranch flavor that is rare for Portland and lends itself to easy, family-friendly living. The owners had one clear request: that the range be placed so they could look out to the living room and through to the back yard, and keep an eye on their small children. The desire for something cheerfully different led to a Mediterranean-inspired tile palette, with ample daylight to play off the colors of the Heath Ceramics tile backsplash. An eat-in kitchen continues the retro feel, with vintage-reproduction furniture suit the era. A sunken living room, vintage marble fireplace, and new wool carpeting keep things cozy.
