Dream Kitchen Inspiration by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

22 August 2015


This kitchen was renovated by Portland, Oregon, based Jessica Helgerson Interior Design. Of the project, which pretty much achieves my idea of the perfect kitchen, Helgerson writes:

“The original kitchen was a narrow galley, with one window. In order to create the new kitchen we removed a wall between the old kitchen and an adjacent family room. We also opened up the connection between the kitchen and dining room with a large arched opening that lines up with the opening to the living room. In order to keep the family room function, we installed a comfortable sofa at one end of the room, and a television hides behind cabinet doors. We designed the island in a style reminiscent of a traditional Spanish table, but made it higher for counter use, and added storage and seating.”

“When we were first meeting with the client she walked us through the whole house, and when we complemented her on a beautiful glass-front cabinet in the bedroom she said she did love it, but had never found quite the right use for it. We suggested integrating it into the new kitchen, and it now lightens and adds interest to a long wall of storage.”

Interior Designer Cameron Kimber’s Sydney Home

27 July 2015


Cameron Kimber is one of Australia’s leading interior designers. By his own description, “Three words dominate my designs: comfort, relaxation, and elegance. As one moves from house to house or country to country there are pieces that stay with you. I see my role as an interior designer, as part editor and part designer to create and beautify a place you want to be. My aim is that every room in the house has an over-all look and feel of comfort and relaxation with certain panache – a touch of the unexpected but always being very polished.” His old residence in Sydney certainly fits the bill.
