Even when you purchase a home that has recently been renovated, chances are that you will be wanting to put your own stamp on it; personalize it, if you will, to make it yours to reflect your personal taste in design. That was definitely the case when a Portland, Oregon couple purchased this 1940’s Georgian style home from a bachelorette who had recently transformed it into her “dream home”. The new owners called upon Holly Freres of JHL Design to help renovate the space. They were seeking less of a feminine “princess” feel, as they described it, in favor of something a tad more modern, masculine, and edgy. The overall result maintains the original roots of the home with its traditional architectural elements that serve as a backdrop for everything modern, masculine and edgy…everything the new owners dreamed of.
