Modern Beach House Remodel
Whole House Renovation in Arch Cape, OR
Originally from Salt Lake City, this client was drawn to the quiet cove of Arch Cape for his full-time move to the beach. The 1980s house was not in good shape when he found it, but its oceanfront site and solid bones made it worthy of a gut renovation.
We kept the brick fireplaces and timber elements of the house, but opened up the rooms, and added a back deck to capture spectacular views. A chic, vintage-modern sensibility expresses the owner's desire to have a coast home without sacrificing his city background and tastes. A dark, moody palette gets a lift from pops of color.

Lozenge-shaped hex tile in both bathrooms echo the kitchen scheme, and convey the owner's love of midmod design motifs.
Bright + dark
The guest bath continues the theme of dark cabinetry with a splash of bold tile.
Thrift store style
The owner sourced all artwork for the home from thrift stores, mixing eclectic kitsch and midcentury ephemera into the decor.
Living room before + after
The owner loved the home's brick fireplace and trusses, so we kept them. Roll over to see the living room before + after.
