A Wonderful Remodeled Portland Home Embraces Wabi-Sabi — House Tour

Name: Angela and Wubbi the Bulldog
Location: SE Portland, Oregon
Size: 2,500 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

When Angela purchased her turn-of-the-century home, the kitchen was literally falling off the back of the house. “After moving in, I learned the original 1906 kitchen was moved from the center of the house onto the BACK PORCH! That little tidbit explained the slope of the kitchen floor! I had myself a genuine indoor/outdoor kitchen. For that reason and more, everything was ripped out down to the studs, a solid foundation was poured, and all new everything was installed…”

A Calm, Renovated, "Post-IKEA" Portland Home — House Tour

Name: David and Katy Kippen, and dogs Violet and Wally
Location: Laurelhurst — NE Portland, Oregon
Size: 650 square feet
Years lived in: 12 years, owned

When Katy and David bought their 1922 Craftsman bungalow in Portland a dozen years ago, they visualized a place where they could enjoy privacy and calm, despite their home’s very urban location. With time and patience they have created their ideal space: modern, minimal and inspired by “nature, open spaces, and contrast.” The updates the couple have managed over the years — including gutting the kitchen and bathroom, and completely updating the landscaping — honor the vintage era of the home.

Katy is the owner and designer of Grayling, and David is part-owner of a hardware store in Portland. Katy explains the reasoning behind the calm, simple aesthetic of their home, “we both work in retail and our stores are highly stimulating environments. When we come home, we like to let our eyes rest.”
