Portland-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson and her team renovated a lackluster loft apartment by stripping it down to the bare essentials then
rebuilding it up with industrial materials in soft colors and textures. The kitchen is finished with pale wood, complementary brass fittings, and one inch mosaic wall tiles. Here we list sources and appealing alternatives to the key elements of Helgerson’s design.
