It could not be less about the house of an interior designer like Jessica Helgerson . This renowned American interior designer is appreciated for its adaptability, coherence and respect for the style and age of the house she decorates. Some years ago he decided to move to the countryside and he did it in a small farm of two hectares on Sauvie Island, 15 minutes from Portland (Oregon, United States).
In a masterful lesson of renewal and reuse, Jessica rescued this small house to make it her home. The house dates back to the decade of the 40s when it was built to accommodate the workers of the Vanport Village shipyard. In 1948 it was dragged to Sauvie Island by the swollen waters of the Columbia River. There it was used as a control station for goose hunting and later it was set up as a rental house.
In the decor from her house we can appreciate the talent of this designer, especially if we see her other works, she has an extraordinary ability to adjust to the home and get the best out of it. The house is small and therefore Jessica has worked hard on the issue of the organization. Especially in a small house with children and a lot of relatives who go on weekends.
All the details of the house are lovely, but this beautiful and simple bathroom in retro style it fits so well in the house that it leaves you a bit overwhelmed.
Since the acquisition of Jessica and Yianni the house underwent a major remodeling, but without increasing the size. They decided to adapt to its surface, that is by freeing the interior of partitions and basing almost all the space in a large interior room. The floors were renovated with local wood, Oregon oak and the roof was also fixed by removing the old covering and replacing it with a green one, planting moss and ferns from the banks of the Columbia River.
A house wonder, simple, authentic and renewed as it should be done, it is as if the house was asking for the style and manner of its new fourth life. This lady, Jessica Helgerson He has an extraordinary sensitivity to listen and see what the house wants. Congratulations!
