I’m crushin’ a lot this week. Oh yes I am. Jessica Helgerson has been on my radar for months and I just now realized I had yet to post about her! Based in Portland, Oregon (a place I’ve never been and am dying to go to), this green designer has quite a talent for making modern spaces feel warm and traditional spaces feel modern. She and her husband, architect Yianni Doulis work on many top to bottom renovation projects together (so cute) and the results, as you can see, are pretty spectacular.
This first home is totally the kind of space I am CRAVING right now- clean lines, crisp white, modern yet with a hint of nature to it. What I am especially loving is that it was a plain ol’ ranch style home that was made into a modern marvel. While looking at real estate, I have been attracted to the open layouts of ranches, but am typically a traditional Georgian or Colonial style girl exterior wise. THis is one great example of how you can take a boring ranch and spice it up in a modern way.

A couple other spaces that made me jealous:
