  • Northwest Garden, Although we live in the "burbs" we have used our garden to help make our house stand out. It's just a simple garden with hopefully alot of color and texture. The soil started out as clay but after many years of amending and working it can grow just about anything., Landscaping

  • Whistle while you work..., This multipurpose room is seen directly from our small galley kitchen.  As the kitchen has an elegant wine bar feel we tried to make this laundry/utility room feel more like an old world pantry. The dry good jars are real space savers but don't let the bagettes fool you - they’re fake! Baskets hold everything: detergent first aid aprons light bulbs extension cords etc.  We leave the door open more often now which makes the kitchen feel like it has a bit more square footage., Closets & Utility

  • Northwest Contemporary Kitchen Remodel, We purchased our outdated 1964 home 10 years ago and have been remodeling it slowly. We recently finished the kitchen/laundry addition. One of the main drawbacks of our home was the fact that there was no laundry room. The washer and dryer were previously located in a small closet off of the main  hallway. 

After much thought, we decided to include the washer/dryer in the new kitchen area. We'd seen this many times in European homes and decided it would be a good fit for us as well. So far, I've really enjoyed it. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it has been really handy! Also the high counter tops over the washer/dryer makes a great buffet area, easily accessible to the patio area (coming soon...)

By far, the most difficult item for me to pick out was the counter tops. I really love the look of cement but was nervous to use it because it's not as durable. After months of looking at different materials we finally decided on quartz counter tops by Caesarstone in Raven. Hard to tell in the photos, but it's a very soft black/deep gray. We went with stained concrete for my table though and I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, it's my favorite part of the kitchen!

I've spent countless hours both watching HGTV and browsing here on the website getting ideas for the remodel. RATE MY SPACE was the source of much inspiration and I've been looking forward to finally adding my own photos to it :)

Our goal was to create a warm, cozy kitchen area that all four of us could enjoy. Used warm colors to help counter the LONG, gray Oregon days. We're happy with the results!

Thanks for taking a look :)

  • Hodgepodge to Heavenly, See the "before" picture.  The old and dangerous wrought iron spikes were the first things to go and we think adding the wrought iron on the balcony worked.  The stone face and wall additions helped add some character along with the window and door surrounds.  We hope you agree., Home Exteriors

It's a small home, but high ceilings and plenty of built-ins make it feel open and comfortable.
