KITCHEN Designer Jessica Helgerson transformed a once-awkward collection of three small rooms into an expanseive and bright kitchen that opens directly onto the garden t hrough new French doors. The Aga range, groove-paneled ceiling, vintage industrial stools from Get Back Inc (getbackinc.com), and Pelham pendant lights (brownandgoldlighting.net) provide period style. Smooth Carrera marble runs down the counters and travels up the backsplash to provide visual continuity throughout the kitchen, and the hue of the oil-rubbed bronze drawer pulls echoes the dark trim throughout the house.

LIVING/DINING ROOM The ceiling in the dining room is a puzzle of eight-inch box beams, with a perfect geometry that Helgerson credits to contractor Gregor Mitchell of the Works Inc (theworkspdx.com). Shimmering glass touches amp up the glitter, from the Bubbles chandelier by Prospetto (available at luxlights.com) to local glassmaker Andy Paiko’s sophisticated forms (andypaikoglass.com) on the coffee table. Chairs crafted by Kai Fuhrmann (pdxmasterfurnituremaker.com) and upholstered in sheepskin throws provide a whimsical counterpoint.

STAIRWELL A formerly blasé entrance in which the living room blurred into the entryway is now a space of its own, with a cased opening and low seating ledges. “We wanted to give the house some glamour,” says Helgerson, pictured here. “But also to make it appropriate to the period.”

MASTER BEDROOM Perforated silver-plated lights by Zenza Lighting (available at interbasics.nl sparkle and make the house really pretty at night,” says Helgerson.
