This house was designed and built as a vacation rental in Portland Oregon. We wanted the materials to be unique, but also very durable. Modern, clean, and warm was the design objective. The lived edge bar top, brought in the warmth with the coastal grey quartz counters.

This kitchen has a modern open floor plan, tons of useful storage, and a warm modern touch. We used lots of sustainable materials from the Pratt and Larson locally made tile, to the sustainably harvested lived edge shelving.

By opening up a wall between the kitchen and dining room, we were able to make this kitchen bright, airy and beautiful. A skylight angeled on all 4 sides allows sun to stream in. The white cabinets are dressed up with quartz counters and green backsplash tile.

Getting rid of the soffits and pony wall in this kitchen opened up the space to the living room, which was a beautiful connection. High gloss custom cabinets, with eco crush counters, and ET2 lights create a modern and crisp kitchen.

We used the old fir pony wall for a backsplash to add warmth and history. The wood backsplash, concrete counters, and farmhouse sink incorporate old styles, with a modern open layout.

These live edge shelves brings a rustic, natural element to this mid century modern kitchen. The floating style allows for a clean modern look on the wall. These shelves transform the area to showcase artistic kitchen elements such as spices, vases, and ceramic dishes.

We performed a face-lift on this SE Portland kitchen. The family that purchased the house liked the layout but needed the former white kitchen to be funkier. We added a fantastic poppy green color to the cabinets, added lumicor panels on some of the cabinets and changed the hardware.

The clients wanted to update the kitchen while staying in the same footprint. We took out soffits, which dramatically opened the space up, switched the stove to the peninsula as a downdraft gas range, that enabled a much better work flow. The tile is Pratt and Larson, counters are quartz, and flooring is Oak to match the existing.

Storage is a key element with kitchens, especially for recycling, garbage and compost. In this kitchen we added 4 pull outs for those waste items, and the fourth stores the dog food. Above are horizontal cabinets which hide appliances such as toasters, blenders, coffee makers, etc. There is electrical there for ease of use.

This kitchen used to have a small 30" door from the living room, not a lot of light, and a really funky layout. We opened the wall graciously connecting the dining and kitchen areas, added large casement windows, and reconfigured the appliances while adding more counter space.

The tall pantry is perfect for food storage and having the glass cabinets with orange painted interiors is a fun touch and allows her beautiful work to be showcased. The door to the basement is painted with a chalkboard and magnetic paint.

Salvaged wood from Portland is what these amazing grain-matched kitchen cabinets are made from. The matte black cabinet pulls add a wonderful contrast to the warmth of the wood.

This kitchen once had a large wall separating it from the rest of the house. We removed that wall to open up the space making it bright and flow better. Salvaged fir with matched end grain brings a warmth and peaceful beauty to the room. Ann Sacks matte glass tile adds a grounding backdrop.

In designing this kitchen, connecting the inside to the outside, adding natural light, and using sustainable materials were the primary objectives. The wood is reclaimed siding from Lewis and Clark College. The kitchen was featured in Natural Home Magazine and on the Portland Green Building Home Tour.

This NW Portland Pearl District kitchen had a good layout but the materials were dated and worn. We painted the cabinets; added satin etched glass inserts, poured cream-colored concrete counters, and for some bling used ASKO glass tiles for the back splash.

This kitchen exudes many green considerations such as recycled glass cabinet pulls, linoleum flooring, and natural wood finishes. Indoor air quality was addressed by using zero VOC paints and adhesives.

ASKO glass mosaic tiles allow this kitchen back splash to shine. Used as an accent against the cream toned concrete counters and brushed nickel faucet it adds a playful sparkle to the room.

We used FSC certified locally sourced Madrone flooring that gives an artistic pattern and warmth throughout the house. The counters are honed granite and the ET2 lighting adds wonderful character to the modern kitchen.

FSC Certified wood was used throughout the house, the madrone flooring comes from small-certified forests in Oregon. The madrone adds warmth, character and mosaic artistry to the main floor. This kitchen was featured in Oregon Home Magazine, the Green Building Edition.

One of our favorite aspects of design is being able to re-think spaces. By extending this kitchen island a few inches we were able to add wine storage in a playful and functional manner. Circular patterns are repeated throughout the house, so if the cabinet is empty or full the pattern looks great.
