Hurst Avenue ResidenceScandinavian Bedroom, Portland
Residential remodel of an attic space added a master bedroom, master bath and nursery as well as much-needed built-in custom storage into the hallway and eave spaces. Light-filled on even the most overcast days, this Portland residence is bright and airy with balance of natural materials playing off a white backdrop. The cedar wood plank walls in the master bedroom and bath give a tactile sense of natural materials and make the rooms glow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
After: Architect Jenny Guggenheim reduced the size of the master bedroom to make it feel cozier and to carve out space for a nursery. Wall paneling made from reclaimed redwood fencing warms up the room and doubles as a headboard. The wood was cut to fit the wall.
5. The pathways on either side of this bad aren’t wide, but the two floating cubes create the illusion of more space since they don’t fill the entire gap. Pendant lights save surface space. The feature wall is planked cedar.
6. Get better sleep. Distractions can make it more challenging to fall asleep, so if you’ve been having trouble getting some quality shut-eye, clearing the clutter from your bedroom may help. Leave the worries of the day behind when you enter your clean, serene and clutter-free space to rest and destress.
AFTER: Guggenheim shrunk the master bedroom to make it feel more intimate and to create space for more upstairs features. Custom paneling made from reclaimed redwood fencing also warms up the room and doubles as a headboard for the couple’s bed. “The client wanted wood with character,” Guggenheim says. The wood was cut to fit the wall, sanded and given a clear, low-sheen finish. Wood paneling: Meridian Hardwood Floors
