Steal This Look: Midcentury Modern Living Room in Portland, Oregon

April 25, 2017

Yesterday we featured a cedar-clad midcentury house in Portland, Oregon, with a design refresh from interior designer Courtney Nye, who found a happy medium between her clients’ “Anthropologie” and “modern” styles. Here’s a closer look at her (mostly local) sources and a few ideas of our own.

For more of the house, see Portlandia: Reimagining a Midcentury Ranch.
