Modern Oregon House in the Trees
This outdated 90’s home in Portland, Oregon was reimagined as a sprawling, modern refuge set against an explosively lush, forested green space.
With the modern farmhouse trend dominating home improvement television and Pinterest boards, it is not surprising that it is a frequent client request. However, Allison Smith Design envisioned something more timeless, with the addition of whimsical elements that draw from the verdant natural surroundings.
This client loved modern design, with its high contrast and clean lines. Along with black and white, the gorgeous, wooded backdrop inspired us to make liberal use of various shades of green throughout the home. For many, green is refreshing, restorative, and soothing, while also being cheerful! It is the color of new growth, abundant in nature.
We layered in plants and many other natural elements to add texture, layers of interest, or simply to round out a space.
This project was a complete renovation of the entire 5,536 square feet, including five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
