Midcentury Home in Portland Gets a Simply Exquisite Reno

Dwell recently put the spotlight on a gorgeously renovated 1950s home in Portland, Oregon, owned by "midcentury-design enthusiast" Ty Milford and his family. Originally the work of noted local architect Saul Zaik, the wood-clad house with a low-pitched gable roof has been extensively updated by Portland-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson, whose firm once also revamped an Oregon mini cottage and Brooklyn brownstone. For the Milfords' home, Helgerson enhanced what was working (i.e. sprucing up the open living and dining area with new wood finishes) and undid what wasn't (i.e. restoring a wall in the family room that had been taken out in a prior remodel).

Milford's adoration for all things midcentury is exhibited throughout the 2,600-square-foot residence. In addition to a George Nelson clock collection, the home displays a dynamic assortment of Eames chairs and Case Study beds. Head over to Dwell for the full tour.
