Forest Green Kitchen

Interior design and renovation created to elevate the interior and exterior of an architect-designed home in a hidden area of Portland’s NW hills. The design is comfortable yet elegant, infusing the family’s acquired treasures from world travels throughout the home (canoes and totems included!), resulting in a playful and meaningful interior. The exterior was re-imagined to integrate with the surrounding forest, and lead into trails landscaped throughout the 50 acre property.

Blue Kitchen

Our clients bought a home on a tree-lined street in North Portland’s Overlook neighborhood that had been comfortably lived in and not renovated since sometime in the 1940’s or maybe the 70’s… hard to discern, but you get the picture.

The young couple hired Bright Besignlab to help collaborate on a full home overhaul – kitchen planning and design, guest bath design and remodel, and designing the addition of a new master bath + closet suite, as well as overall color palette throughout.

The finished product is an exciting, playful yet sophisticated array of pattern, color and texture – juxtaposing modern finishes and old world techniques.  The kitchen design includes blue azure concrete tiles from Ann Sacks, Bright Designlab detailing on custom washed gray oak cabinets and waterfall of pentalquartz with warm, winding, walnut floating shelves. and glossy white upper European style cabinets.  Brass hardware and beat lights provide a sparkling warmth and light.

White, Black, Pink: Part 1

A newlywed couple came to Bright Designlab having just purchased their home in NE Portland: a completely modernized traditional Portland home. The scope of the project was to fully furnish the spaces and make their new nest livable, functional, and reflecting the couples undeniable charismatic personality… with room to grow.

White, Black, Pink: Part 2

The shingled home is three stories tall (now with renovated attic floor) and very light, bright, and open, with traditional moldings and details. Bright designlab pulled together a selection of classic pieces, along with handcrafted, vintage and custom furniture to complement.

Japanese Minimalism Kitchen

Our client longed for a show-stopping whole-home remodel of his Mid-Century Modern house in the hills of NW Portland. We created a design based on the concept of Japanese minimalism and executed it throughout the home, keeping the aesthetic clean, modern, and masculine.

Bohemian Modern Kitchen

Our clients bought a home in the Creston-Kenilworth area of SE Portland; a 1959 classic that was just sitting pretty, waiting for an artist’s touch.  A lovely Mid-Century blank slate to work with.

The young couple hired Bright Designlab to help collaborate on a full kitchen plan and design – one that would showcase Jeff Hulme’s original pottery and one that would keep the growing family together in the kitchen during mealtime.

The finished product has a bohemian, handcrafted look, with custom designed open shelving of steel and oak, cork floors, and navy cabinetry with cut out handles to show off the ApplePly. Every drawer has a purpose, and the rest, is truly an art display.

Modern Plywood Treehouse: Part 1

Our client, a Creative Director for the skateboarding world, was looking for a kitchen and powder room filled with texture and life, and a showcase to exhibit a finely curated collection of art in all forms. What emerged from the collaboration is a kitchen that is a sculpture in itself, modern and masculine. The wall of plywood shelving which frames the forested site was designed by Bright Designlab – executed by the fine carpenters at Hammer & Hand.

Modern Plywood Treehouse: Part 2

The kitchen cabinets are ebonized wood in which you can still see the texture of the woodgrain below the inky surface, accented by sleek brass pulls, open light wood shelving with brass brackets and a quartz top. The custom peninsula has a black Western walnut top and legs over a plywood base with a black pipe footrest. The Bertoia barstools were part of the client’s own collection.

Bungalow Kitchen

This young couple came to Bright Designlab with a predicament: They love to entertain, however their existing kitchen was sorely lacking the function and flow needed to host friends and family. In addition, though the house is from the 1920’s, the kitchen had been remodeled in the 1950’s and just didn’t fit… it was time to make a change.

Bright Designlab  reimagined the kitchen to mingle the clients’ modern aesthetic with elements that speak to the sensibilities of the 1920’s structure.  The new plan embraces the adjacent dining room, adding a small wet-bar, and allowing guests to easily interact with their hosts. To gain functional space without adding square footage, deep counters, additional windows, concentrated work zones, and a pantry were designed in, to make the space feel open and work well for two cooks to work in tandem.
