Holly + Tony's Sixties Ranch

Kitchen + Bath in Portland, OR

A SE Portland 1960s ranch kitchen + living + baths are revamped for a family of 5. 

Frumpy at first glance, the house had an open plan and retro ranch flavor that is rare for Portland and lends itself to easy, family-friendly living. The owners had one clear request for their kitchen: that the range be placed so they could look out to the living room and through to the back yard, and keep an eye on their small children.

The desire for something cheerfully different led to a Mediterranean-inspired tile palette, with ample daylight to play off the colors of the tile backsplash. An eat-in kitchen continues the retro feel, with vintage-reproduction furniture suit the era. A sunken living room, vintage marble fireplace, and new wool carpeting keep things cozy.

This project was published in Atomic Ranch magazine. *Three years after the kitchen + living room project, we remodeled the master bath + kids' bath.

We are so happy with our new space. Our kitchen and living room have been completely transformed. It was a genuine pleasure and honor to work with Michael. We really felt that we were working with an artist and an architect throughout the entire process. He possesses a unique combination of vision, creativity and professionalism as well as an amazing ability to listen and get a feel for our ideas. His presence throughout the process, his ability to advocate for the homeowner, and his obsessive attention to detail resulted in the finished product being of the utmost quality.

A bold configuration of Heath Ceramics handmade ceramic tile makes a splash, adding to the vintage vibe of this '60s ranch.

The existing kitchen was gutted and opened up, to make way for the new.

The existing Carrara marble fireplace was a stepping stone(s) to a midcentury Italian–inspired approach to the project.

We refinished the original built-in mahogany sideboard in the dining area, and reframed it in cherry wood to coordinate with the kitchen cabinetry. We also gave the sideboard new custom cherry pulls, to match those in the kitchen.

Mahogany vanities at the master + kids' baths add warmth to the bathrooms, while bold tile schemes keep things cool.

The kids' bath gets a bright-orange budget-friendly tile (while their parents get handmade ceramic tile). But neither bathroom skimps on function and attention to detail.
