We significantly expanded a 1920’s Portland home by adding a fourth bedroom to the second floor and converting the basement and attic to livable space. We relocated the kitchen to the back of the house, closer to the garden, and added a generous new steel-sash window which floods the pretty room with sunlight. We designed custom pickets for the stair, which we reconfigured to access the attic and basement. The color palette for the house is soft and muted and the new details are in keeping with the history of the house, but the furnishings are youthful and modern.
The senior designer for the Neely House project was Chelsie Lee.
