A black-and-white palette gives a contemporary edge.
While the existing 1969 Northwest Portland home was nice, it needed some updates to fit the homeowner’s current phase of life. The couple created a true primary suite by converting their son’s bedroom into a walk-in closet. The whole house renovation touched every room, and the black-and-white contrast created a cohesive look. The space feels bright and contemporary with a lighter palette, modern materials, and additional lighting.
