More from Jessica Helgerson

Posted on Fri, 3 Jul 2009 by KiM

As I promised yesterday, here is another gem from the portfolio of Jessica Helgerson. I can’t quite decide which I love more. This one is a bit more mid-century while yesterday’s project was a bit more glamourous. Here’s what Jessica had to say about this project:

A complete remodel of a once run-down split- level ranch house. This project involved removing the existing kitchen entirely to create a bright, airy great room. The existing master bath was removed as well and relocated to the back of the house where it now opens on to a lovely garden. The color palette is extremely restrained throughout with dark ebonized floors, white walls, and splashes of various shades of green. All the furnishings, including the gorgeous rocking chaise, are vintage finds that we reupholstered and refinished, with the exception of the coffee table which was made by Jessica’s husband architect YIANNI DOULIS from a slab of locally salvaged eastern hardrock maple. Antiques – including a pair of Portuguese eel traps hanging over the mantle, the Chinese garden stools, a rustic mirrored cabinet, and the French blown glass demi-john bottles – add a patina of age. The master bathroom cabinets are made of kirei board – an engineered panel product made from the stalks of the Sorghum plant which is grown around the world for food.

I could definitely live in a place like this!

i love the light open feel of this home. The touches of green are beautifully fresh.

bonito demais os ambientes.


1. That living room is truly stunning. Of course hard to find anything that is wrong but the two strokes of genius are the table and branches. Really makes the room pop!
2. What the heck is our dog doing there? Scary resemblance.


This is the most lovely thing I have seen in a long time! Modern and elegant… I agree the touches of green are brilliant – they really elevate the rooms.

love the house

wow, what a place! It's fantastic. It feels like it's a garden rather than a home! I love it.
