Inside Emily Henderson's latest transformation!

This beautiful Portland, Oregon home belongs to Ken and Katie (Emily Henderson's brother and his wife) that they bought with the intention of flipping. With the help from Emily and her team, this home has been expanded by 1,300 square feet and with a third floor addition, thanks to a change of floor plan. The results? A bright, airy and spacious abode with character and soul. Let's take a look, shall we?

How gorgeous is this home? Modern yet classic with a hint of casual glam, this abode feels effortlessly fresh, inviting and timeless. A combination of blues, neutrals and recurring elements such as brass, silver and marble are incorporated from one room to another to create flow and a sense of cohesiveness. Chic, calming and thoughtfully designed, what's not to love about this stunning home? Your thoughts?

Favorite room of the week!

This beautiful eating area and kitchen is designed by Celerie Kemble. By incorporating a red and white palette, this space feels youthful and energetic! I like how the designer uses the same type of French bistro chairs and counter stools to tie both areas together. A gorgeous custom leather bench grounds the space and provides additional seating. To create contrast, a classic style table is juxtaposed against an unexpected modern light fixture. Meanwhile, the kitchen is kept predominantly white for a bright and airy feel. Fresh and effortlessly chic, what's not to love about this delightful breakfast and kitchen area? Your thoughts?
