Lofty Living in Portland

January 4, 2013

What a week and what a start to the year! We closed the shop down on Wednesday to pack up Christmas and well, Christmas is still in ruins in the Spruce workshop but somehow we managed to rearrange and restyle the entire storefront! Whoops, a minor casualty of 5 creative girls working together :) We closed the store for an extra day to put ourselves back together and it feels so fantastic to start the year organized, fresh and clean! Unfortunately, my house can’t say the same and my handsome hubby is folding laundry as I type…which (no offence to Brad) means it’s pretty bad if even he noticed the mountain! Ah well, I’ll pretend that this amazing loft is mine for a moment instead of worrying about dust bunnies…

Located in Portland’s Pearl District, this loft was originally converted out of an industrial warehouse space and was opened up by Jessica Helgerson‘s team who transformed it into the warm and inviting family home that it is today. I especially love the kitchen with its open shelves, dark beams, concrete floors and, ooh, that chandelier! Not to mention the stunning harvest table and vintage Eames DKW chairs, swoon

Oodles of storage, layered textures and patterns and plenty of natural materials complete the package, all of which are key components of Jessica’s signature style. Her work is so refreshing in that each home and space designed by her team is completely unique and full of personality yet in keeping with natural elements found in the Pacific Northwest. And I’m seriously coveting that wall of shelves…

Well, I suppose I should go put some laundry away now and tend to my dust bunnies but enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! I love her style too. The floating tv console is pretty great as well.

I agree Stacey, such a great way to help the big black box to blend in :)

I love the mix of moody dark ceilings and floors with all bright white walls…might be tough to pull off without these loft ceilings though! Thanks Dionne :)

I love that kitchen! And the Pearl District is our favourite place to hang out when we visit Portland!
