Rooms to Live for

Bold confident choices blended  with the elements of colour, pattern and  texture  bring each room to life. Various lifestyle demand that each room be unique quality pieces of livable art.
 John Thompson Designer, the innovative creator of each of these rooms is progressive design firm located in Portland , Oregon.
Escaping from their rather neutral boxes, each room took shape. The house became the home that greets each client. A masterpiece for their refined but eclectic tastes. The proper mix of colour and visual texture unfolds the layers. The use of sophisticated textiles blends with the
 accessories, art work and beloved family heirlooms. These rooms  express the personality of each homeowner. 


 In this living room the deep peacock teal blue become the backdrop for a very eclectic home furnished with ethnic,modern or antique pieces. the wunderkammer on the wall organizes the various finds of visual and textural eye candy. The textile on the sofa is from wholesale fabric house.www.pollackassociates.com
Recreating her life after years of having nothing, This client used her limited to purchase a custom sofa built for her specific needs of comfort and her small space. The mix of various shades of grey are tried together by the beautiful area rugs by www.lapchi.com it is a wonderful blend of silk and wool that are woven to create the luxury in this simple apartment.
The strong colours of this unusual area rug become the foundation for the vivid spring colours for this lively home for  empty Nester couple. The various textiles of cotton teal velvet, striped silks, rich Jacquard tapestries from www.clarencehouse.com  take on the adventure of the shocking colours that lift the casual upholstery to a new level. The white walls and furniture become a back drop for the couples collection of artwork from Henk Pander, a local NW artist featured at www.laurarusso.com
High in the mountains in Truckee, California, Becomes the modern vacation  lodge for a multi generational family. The attention to detail in all the finishes from the Cypress planks on the ceiling to the custom pieces fromwww.donghia.com and from Portland, Oregon based furniture company, www.thejoinery.com create the warmth that greets the family each time that travel from the city to relax in the mountain retreat. For more on this lodge, refer to my earlier blog,residential design project from inception to move in , date January 15, 2012.

Green became the new neutral as this dark space comes alive, The pale celedon chairs from www.hbf.com loved by the homeowner started the design process. The elegant custom sofa covered in white wool sateen brought the much needed life into this space. the wool sheers fromwww.clarencehouse.com soften the stronger contemporary windows in  this modern condo in the Pearl in downtown Portland, Oregon.
This client took the average house and turned into an Aspen inspired bachelor's home. The sofa is covered in www.robertallendesign.com and the occasional chairs were covered in a soft chenille velvet fromwww.brentanofabrics.com. Big leaf maple was chosen for the custom hand chisled fireplace mantel from www.endurawood.com.

The elements of our lifestyles help make the selections for each of these home for people on the move to clients seeking solitude with their meditation. Each are bold choices for design.
