Stunningly timeless Tudor style home in Portland

Mt Tabor Tudor-Jessica Helgerson-01-1 Kindesign

This Tudor style house sits atop Mt Tabor in Portland, Oregon, suffering from severe disrepair, the home was given a full remodel by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design. The clients are a modern family of four and had purchased this 1920s English Tudor several years ago before retaining the help of a designer. With several bad remodels under its belt, the designer wanted to retain the original character and charm of the house and fix everything that had gone wrong. The designer re-worked the layout to create spaces to fit the family’s lifestyle of cooking, eating and spending time together. The narrow galley kitchen was completely transformed by taking out a wall. It is now quite spacious with a breakfast nook and nicely sized island. The space opens up to an adjacent “snug room” that features cozy built-in seating, fireplace, and a concealed television behind a paneled wall. The powder room was re-located to an outer wall so it could take advantage of natural light from an existing window. The living room features an inviting furniture layout with two L-shaped sofas centered around a coffee table and fireplace, the focal point to the room. In the living room, we designed two L-shaped sofas to create a simple and inviting furniture layout, which centers around a generous coffee table and fireplace.

On the upstair level, a closet and small master bath were re-configured to generate a more spacious master bathroom, laundry area and a generously sized master walk-in closet. Two additional bathrooms that were already existing to the home were also re-designed, adding a custom mosaic tile pattern to each. The color palette was comprised of watery grays, which compliments the warm hues from the rugs, wood flooring and furnishings. The designers were also responsible for designing custom light fixtures and a built-in cabinet with glass doors in the dining room.

In the dining room, an heirloom coffee table is the center point of the room. The walls have been painted in Benjamin Moore’s Dark Pewter, which highlights the built-in china hutch.
