Hampton's Inspired Retreat February 24 2018

The Setting

 

The Oregon Coast

 

The Challenge:

 

This project was quite the transformation. The clients fell in love with the location and the square footage but not the architectural style. The home was built in an Old World Tuscan style and our clients wanted the new interiors to connect with the ocean and the rugged Oregon Coast. The overall design aesthetic was a nod to the East Coast Hamptons style. The existing walnut floors and woodwork were refinished and add warmth and contrast to the back drop of crisp, clean white. The palette of blues and grays are carried throughout the entire home with texture and pattern used for visual interest. A mix of traditional, transitional and contemporary furnishings create balance and a timeless look.

 

The Solution:

 

The palette of blues and grays are the spirit that is carried throughout the entire home with texture and pattern used for visual interest. A mix of traditional, transitional and contemporary furnishings create balance and a timeless look. 

Transitional Masterpiece January 29 2018

The Setting:

Two-story residence in Lake Oswego, OR

The Challenge:

When the homeowners first approached Bella Casa, they were looking to simply update their home furnishings. As the project progressed they decided to do major renovations on the entire home including a total kitchen overhaul, raising the sunken living room to the same level as the rest of the first floor, as well as a custom rail for the curved staircase. In the mean time, the clients had already purchased quite a bit of furniture that we now had to make sure still fit in the newly renovated spaces. While they wanted the new decor to be sophisticated and more contemporary, they have two younger children so we selected upholstery options that are easily cleaned and kid-friendly.

The Solution:

As the project progressed the overriding concept began to take shape. The overall palette would be grays, creams, golds, silver and black. Varied textures and tone-on-tone patterns were added for variety.

NW Hills Condo October 16 2017

The Setting:
3 Bedroom Condo located in NW, Portland.

The Challenge:

This is a second home for our clients. Their main home is a bit more traditional, but for their “place in the city” they wanted to go with a more contemporary look that was still comfortable and inviting. Friends and extended family are always welcome, so the furnishings had to be hard-wearing as well as beautiful and functional. They love neutral palettes but also wanted to bring in bold hits of color to add drama. The views are one of the main attractions in this condo which we took into consideration as we selected furniture and layout.

The Solution:

We started by designing a custom leather sectional for the main living room and a custom sleeper sofa in the family/game room for additional sleeping. There was some minor reworking of built-in cabinets and bookcases which saw new life with glass shelves and lighting installed. While the palette is neutral, the space is anything but boring with the additional of colorful accessories and dramatic, oversized art.

The Setting:
2 Bedroom Condo located in SW Downtown, Portland.

The Challenge:
The clients are East Coast transplants who moved from a traditional, single-family home into much less square footage. They requested a space that would be sophisticated and stylish but comfortable and cozy enough to entertain the grandkids when they spent the night. With the exception of the master bedroom, all new furniture was specified as well as lighting and most of the accessories. 

The Solution:

 


Lake Oswego Residence September 01 2015

Interior Design by Gregory Crowe  

The Setting:
Expansive two-story home featuring a wooded setting with spectacular lake views.

The Challenge:
The clients had several pieces of existing furniture and art, including two Chinese Horse Shoe chairs that they wanted to integrate with new contemporary furniture. The main areas of focus were the entry, living, dining and master bedroom. The clients were inspired by sleek, contemporary hotel lobbies and wanted to bring that feel into their home without it feeling stuffy or too formal.
