a vintage and modern Oregon home


I have a soft spot in my heart for old homes, but who wants to live without the modern conveniences of the twenty-first century? Well, this little vintage Oregon cottage has been lovingly updated with modern touches, but still maintains the beautiful 1920’s details from the decade it was built. 
  

The secret of the design is to keep it simple and uncluttered and bring in elements that are reminiscent to the era that the home was built.


I just love all the modern furnishings and how they juxtapose against the traditional fireplace, windows and mouldings. Isn't this rug amazing? It brings the whole room together, perfectly combining all the grays with that vibrant sofa!


Windsor chairs have been my thing lately. Even though they originated around 1710, they have a totally modern vibe. They simplicity of the design must be the key. Love that light fixture too. It really makes the room more youthful!


My kitchen has white shaker cabinets and black granite counter tops similar to this look, and even though it can be a little plain, I love that it’s a neutral backdrop for the rest of the kitchen. In this home, it’s perfect, especially with that gorgeous Lacanche stove! 


So bright and airy, but it’s still such a cozy kitchen!

This little kitchen fireplace is new, but it looks like it’s always belonged in the home!


This upper landing area is new and does triple duty as a home office for the adults, a play area for the kids and a reading nook for all!


The Ochre chandelier in the master bedroom is everything!


Perfect vintage style in the master bathroom with just a little pop of wallpaper in the w.c.


Built-ins the boys’ bedroom maximizes play space! 


The built-ins have a streamlined traditional style,
in keeping with the rest of the home. 


Lots of mirrors, white walls, dark floors and tall ceilings create the illusion of more space and keep it looking gorgeous! All the wallpaper in the home is by Marte Armitage, and it’s definitely a perfect match with this house.  What a lovely little bedroom!

  1. What a gorgeous home! All the little details are there that make a home inviting and warm...lots of white contrasting with dark wood floors (love that herringbone pattern in one of the rooms) and beamed ceilings. The crown mouldings in the living room are massive and awesome! Thanks for posting this...it's inspiring! ~Carol in San Diego

  2. I'm with you...I prefer an older home with modern conveniences. There is something to be said about the charm and character they possess. I love this home, particularly the kitchen and baths. Congrats on your new site also.
