Georgian Facelift - It Begins

This is the first installment about one of our ongoing projects which is currently under construction. A couple from Portland, OR with three young children hired Stephan Jones|Studio to re-design the front façade and landscaping of their Georgian-style house. There were three particular challenges to this project: downscaling the façade to blend with the owners’ aesthetic as well as that of the neighborhood; creating privacy from the main thoroughfare on which it is located; managing the project from afar, particularly at a time when the coronavirus pandemic is making site visits impossible.

Problem to Solution: Farmhouse Living

Part of the joy of being an interior designer is finding solutions to the particular challenges presented by each project I work on. Every home is puzzle and all the pieces must fit together perfectly for the project to be successful. I take great pride in devising a creative plan that is physically beautiful, functionally sound and in keeping with my clients’ needs, sensibilities and tastes.

Stephan Jones | SHOP

The Shop is part of an overall transition for me and my interior design studio that included a new website, a new logo, and even a new name, Stephan Jones|STUDIO. It began with moving into a new storefront location on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood in January. It was a thrilling transformational process, brewing for several years, then coming to fruition over the past eight months.
