Kitchen of the Week: Cheery Retro Style for a 1913 Kitchen
Modern materials take on a vintage look in a Portland kitchen that honors the home’s history.
Kitchen at a Glance
Who lives here: David Spencer, Jerry Petty, son Jack and dog Sheba
Location: Ladd’s Addition neighborhood of Portland, Oregon
Size: 300 square feet
Budget: $64,000 (includes all building and material costs for the full remodel, custom cabinetry, traditional plaster walls and electrical and plumbing)
The previous kitchen had scored plaster wainscoting along the walls, painted to look like tile. After ripping out the wood, Cooney installed 3-inch square tiles that would match the style while upping the kitchen’s practicality.
