Contemporary Spin

Location: West Linn, OR

Traditional home. Contemporary taste.

When the couple purchased this one-level in West Linn, they knew they had a project on their hands.

The challenge? The couple has different tastes. He’s more traditional, while she’s always been a fan of contemporary homes. This 1989 home features various arches and columns, as well as white carpet, raised panel cabinetry, wainscoting, and built-in cabinets. The goal was to make impactful decisions while focusing on the kitchen, master bedroom, paint, and flooring.
