Remodel of a Beautiful but Sadly Run-Down Country House

This project by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design was a complete remodel of a beautiful, but sadly run-down country house on a 250 acre estate. The property, which cascades down from the house, first to a beautiful pool and then to a river and forest, reputedly has the best salmon fishing in the state. 

“In the course of our design work, we completely re-worked the floor plan, converting space that opened out onto the pool, but had originally been a five-car garage, to a welcoming family room and library. We also added a garden kitchen at this lower level. On the upper floor, we significantly remodeled all the rooms and opened the living room to an adjacent study to create a generous great room with a two-sided fireplace and a welcoming seating nook.  

Our aesthetic goal for the project was to assemble a warm, casual, family-friendly palette of materials; linen, leather, natural wood and stone, cozy rugs, and vintage textiles. The dark beams and windows create a strong graphic element which is balanced and echoed by these more delicate textile patterns. “
