Fresh Spaces By Jessica Helgerson

I first came across the airy, bright homes by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design a few years ago on Design*Sponge, and I still have a few of those first images saved in my design inspiration folder. Based in Portland, Oregon, the team creates sophisticated, colour-infused interiors.

Blogger Grace Bonney selected this living room as one of her favourites, and it’s easy to see why. Large branches indoors reflect the stunning greenery visible beyond the windows, and a rustic maple coffee table — made by Jessica’s husband, architect Yianni Doulis — ties in with the organic theme.

The firm’s website says, “[Jessica’s] life in Europe and her travels in India, Mexico, Morocco, and the Far East have strongly influenced her work.” I wonder if her travels inspired the use of these gorgeous mudroom floor tiles? Simple hooks, a minimalist built-in bench and wire baskets are effective entryway solutions.

The stunning tile continues into this warm white kitchen. Fairly sure I love everything about this kitchen — the black window frames, the bright stools, the painted beams, the arched doorway — I could go on!

This living room design combines comfort with great style. I adore how the Arco floor lamp hovers over the seating area.
