Homes - Brush Prairie House

Another stunner from our friends at Jessica Helgerson Interior Design. The white backdrop with wooden accents is one of our favourite combinations - white serves as a modern and clean starting point and the wood pairings lend a Scandinavian, fresh and organic feel. I've yet to see a design project by Jessica that I wouldn't die to move in to - her work is a constant source of inspiration. Her way of celebrating the outdoors and creating open, modern and inviting spaces that feel so fresh is what I love best. Read on for Jessica's insight on the project.

"We were called in to furnish the front rooms of this lovely house in southern Washington. The clients had recently moved in, had given away all of their old furniture, and wanted to start from scratch."

"A white sectional leather sofa defines the living room area and is architectural in feeling, echoing the white walls that surround it. A buffalo-hide rug and a vintage chair give texture and warmth to the otherwise cool palette."

"The dining table is a thirteen-foot-long, five-inch-thick slab of reclaimed acacia wood, with a natural woven chandelier that is similar in color and feeling to the Hans Wegner wishbone chairs that surround the table. The abstract paintings, a series entitled ‘Momentum,’ are vermillion ink on pale grey vellum by Portland artist Heather Watkins."

"The den offers a counterpart to the open and airy great room. It is dark, cozy and comfortable with a plush silk-velvet sofa and curtains all in the same shade of deep grey as the walls. The art piece in the den was designed by JHID designer Emily Knudsen and screen-printed here in Portland. It includes dates, initials, and places of significance to the clients."

The lead designer for Bush Prairie House was JHID designer Jesse Moyer. All photos by Lincoln Barbour.
