Although most of the work I do is in Chicago, I am always happy to work on projects elsewhere.
One that I recently finished was in Portland, Oregon.
This couple bought a house that was being foreclosed on 65% through it’s renovation. The home needed to both be finished and fixed – much of the previous renovation needed to be redone. This is a situation that I see often – a rushed renovation marred by poor design, poor craftsmanship or both.
Here are some of the befores, stay tuned….

Came across Anna James’ work and fell in love. Not unlike a recent post regarding draping an interesting surface over a less compelling one, I have always been enamored of great color combinations and patterns that help to define a piece or space. James’ taste is brilliant and her use of crafting a surface to define an object is compelling. Verona is on.

This slide is part of a collaboration between Ab Rogers Design and DA.Studio for a residence they call Rainbow House. Better not let this get out to the kids of the world.
