Over the past 10 months, we have been working on updating a beautiful Rummer in Beaverton for a delightful couple. The remodel has included removing the existing cork floors and refinishing the original concrete floors, painting both the interior and exterior, replacing all the interior doors and trim, updating the bathroom with new floor tile and vanity counters, and adding custom roller shades for privacy.

The palette was simple. White and black. The exterior was painted a matte black, with glossy black beams that carry through to the interior. The wood eaves were left exposed to add warmth and contrast. The front door was painted a fun mint green. The interior walls are painted a soft white with white trim and doors creating a blank slate for brightly colored furnishings and artwork.

We have slowly, but surely started furnishing the space with a gorgeous custom leather sofa from Perch Furniture, set a top a graphic chevron rug. Both a live edge coffee table and walnut slab dining table were hand built by our talented clients. A set of vintage, green leather Eames Chairs with new wood bases, and a stunning pendant light compliment the new dining table. The clients found a pair of Bertoia diamond chairs for a killer deal which we painted the same mint green as the door.  We designed a deep built-in bench with custom seat cushions in the nook off the kitchen which will for now serve as a loungy reading space, with plans to add a small kitchen table and two chairs (not pictured).

We are currently working on the master bedroom which will include a custom bedframe with built-in nightstands, light fixtures, art and bedding.

Here are a few photos of our progress:

  1. I am currently in the process of renovating a Rummer in Beaverton. Who did you use for the concrete floors?
