Today we present you our gallery featuring images of the total interior redesign of an 8,000 square foot home in Portland, Oregon by Nordby Design Studios.

The company began as Nordby Architecture LLC on January 1, 2002 by Jon Nordby. His goal was to ensure that his clients’ projects far surpass what they had envisioned. In the meantime Jon was joined by partner Julie Nordby, an award winning interior designer. With the new addition, the name was changed to reflect the full breadth of the company’s scope. 

With over 35 combined years of design experience, Nordby Design Studios crafts a wide breadth of styles and structures for residential and commercial development.

This home, located in the Bethany Area of northwest Portland, Oregon, was a complete interior redesign to meet the needs for a young family of six. The striking elements throughout the home are as functional as they are beautiful. A major goal was to retain a light and airy feel despite the use of dark hardwood floors, accents and cabinets.
