80's home meets Modern Glam Renovation (Lake Oswego, OR)

This property is truly an example of how good modern design can completely rejuvenate an outdated property. The home was featured on the 1981 Street of Dreams tour and was filled to the brim with early 80's home building trends..the dark wood panelling, mirrored glass reflection in the hallways, pink carpets, unfortunately little had been done in terms of updating the property since then so when the new owner purchased the home, she knew exactly what she wanted to have some major changes done. The minute we looked at the structure of the home we knew this had some excellent potential! The large windows in the family room was what drew her, natural light was an important factor to the home. Out went the oppressively dark floating cabinets, and in went new cabinets, a stunning open bright kitchen, new lighting, new floors, new tile work, new soaking tub, and gorgeous fixtures throughout. Even a paint of pink color on the entrance original door! All these renovations breathed new life into the property and made its early 80's bones seem strikingly fresh and modern.
