Dwell recently put the spotlight on a gorgeously renovated 1950s home in Portland, Oregon, owned by “midcentury-design enthusiast” Ty Milford and his family. Originally the work of noted local architect Saul Zaik, the wood-clad house with a low-pitched gable roof has been extensively redesigned by Portland-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson, whose firm once also revamped an Oregon mini cottage and Brooklyn brownstone. For the Milfords’; home, Helgerson enhanced what was working (i.e. sprucing up the open living and dining area with new wood finishes) and undid what wasn’;t (i.e. restoring a wall in the family room that had been taken out in a prior remodel).

Milford’;s adoration for all things midcentury is exhibited throughout the 2,600-square-foot residence. In addition to a George Nelson clock collection, the home displays a dynamic assortment of Eames chairs and Case Study beds. Head over to Dwell for the full tour.
