Portland Interior Designers: Introspecs


In today’s Portland Interior Designer profile, we introduce you to Allisen Larsen, the principal designer of Introspecs Interior Architectural & Design Services.

Allisen has worked in interior design for 11 years, and has had a passion for the field since she was only 10 years old.

Allisen prides herself on working collaboratively with clients to create unique spaces that meet their needs.

We asked Allisen to take a little time away from her work (and her wedding planning — she’s getting married in Spain!) to answer a few questions for us. Fortunately for us, she obliged.

KGC-logo-smallHow did your interest in design develop?

I was drawing floor plans of my dream home when I was 10 years old, after looking through a Metropolitan Home magazine. I will never forget the delicious smell of those pages.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat makes you different from other designers??

Skillset-wise, I’m legit with a degree from the University of Oregon in Interior Architecture, Minor in Architecture. Personality-wise, I’m pretty easy-going yet super organized and responsive, I’m a great listener and very open communicator, and I’m highly intuitive which allows me to design intelligently for each client in a unique way.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat has been your key to success?

Slow and steady growth, aligning myself with both clients and strategic partners that share my same business ethics, great team dynamics, open team communication, stability in business organization and continued refining of target projects.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat is the highest compliment you’ve been paid for your work?

This is a tough one, but I think I feel most humbled and appreciated when my clients can feel how much I care for them and our design results being driven by their personal family wants and needs.”

KGC-logo-smallHow would you describe your design style?

Soft modern, buttery, custom cozy, crisp and fresh, warm and welcoming.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat is your idea of what a beautiful home should feel like?

I think a beautiful home has a soul that has been slowly and carefully curated through time, with special pieces that carry meaning and memory for people, and whose design elements communicate fluidly through all spaces but tell slightly different stories.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat inspires your creativity?

An open-minded client, but one with some idea of likes and dislikes as well. I also get super creative when I have chunks of time to get really into the design flow process.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat excites you about design these days?

Custom, locally hand-crafted products that fit within an interior and a client’s environment perfectly.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat is the most rewarding aspect of your work?

Happy clients, no doubt. Of course, it’s always fabulous when my designs are followed to the end, and the creative, fun ideas are realized!”

KGC-logo-smallWhat are some of your favorite finishing touches when designing a room?


KGC-logo-smallHow involved in the day-to-day details of a project do you like a client to be??

Very responsive, but also trusting in the team process.”

KGC-logo-smallWhat advice do you have for homeowners reading this interview who are looking to remodel their home?

When in doubt about paint, a piece of furniture, it’s worth an hour or two of a designer’s time to direct or verify you’re heading in the right direction. And if you’re doing a kitchen, bathroom or larger-scale remodel project, (and you’re not an architect or designer yourself) ABSOLUTELY, without a doubt, hire a designer. The amount of money you’ll be investing in your home (and increasing it’s value) will more than cover those costs and save a lot of heartache in the long run.”

KGC-logo-smallWhen you are not designing, what are you doing?

These days, I’m planning my wedding in Northern Spain! :)”

We invite you to browse some of Allisen’s work below, and to consider Keith Green Construction for your Portland roofing and construction needs.

When is it time to replace or repair your roof? What every homeowner needs to know

ou may have heard the saying, “The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.” This is a sound decision if you’re a homeowner and you want to minimize home improvement costs, especially when it comes to replacing or repairing your roof.

Throughout the year, your roof protects you against the elements and is constantly expanding and contracting, drying up and cracking. With time, it’s normal that your roof deteriorates. If the roof is in need of repair, the line of defense of your home is broken. A faulty roof could lead to damage to your ceiling, walls, insulation, electrical wiring, floors, furniture and more.

[Need emergency roof repairs? Click to hire a pro roofing contractor.]So on the next sunny day, and twice a year after that, inspect your roof to prevent the worst from happening and incurring greater emergency repair costs down the line.

10 things to look for during your roof inspection

So how do you know if it’s time to have your roof repaired or replaced?

First, walk around your home and closely examine the roof for obvious signs of damage, leaks, or aging. You can use binoculars to examine it more carefully. Some people climb onto their roofs for the annual inspection, but it’s best to leave climbing to professionals, who can access your roof safely.

[Not sure how to inspect your roof? Get a pro to do it for you]

Inspect the roof for:

  1. Torn, loose, damaged (or missing!) shingles, shakes or tiles
  2. Shingles that curl up or are cracked
  3. Granules from shingles or pieces of roofing materials in the gutters
  4. Dark areas or signs of water damage visible on the roof surface
  5. Gutters that droop or are blocked
  6. Water leaking from the gutter or the pipe
  7. Signs of mold or moisture
  8. Bird nests or signs of vermin infestation
  9. Plant shoots on the roof or in the gutters
  10. Dark spots or water stains on ceilings inside the house*

Deciding on whether to repair or replace your roof

Now that you’ve taken note of the condition of your roof, you’ll have to decide if you need to repair your roof or replace it entirely. There are costs to consider with either decision.

Many homeowners choose to repair individual damaged shingles, slates or tiles to extend the life of the roof. The downside is that new shingles may not match the color of your current shingles, and you could lose some curb appeal. Ask your contractor to match the shingles as closely as possible if you are choosing to patch up your roof. If parts of the roof need repair, there’s a good chance that it won’t be long until you’ll have to repair (or replace) the rest, too.

It may work out cheaper in the long term to reroof with durable and sustainable roofing  products that will last you a dozen years or more than to patch up bits and pieces over the years. Your roofing contractor will be able to help you to make that decision.

Investing in your roof is certainly an expense, but consider the peace of mind you’ll have from knowing that your roof is strong enough to protect your home and family from harshness of the elements.

When to call in the pros

If you have never inspected your roof for damage, or you see signs of impending leaks, cracks, or wear-and-tear, contact a professional roofing contractor. That single phone call or email could save you thousands before the next big storm hits!

Portland Interior Designers: Senoj Design


Welcome to the latest installment of our Portland Interior Designers segment, which profiles talented interior designers working in Portland, Oregon. Today, we profile Hanna Elizabeth Jones, Designer and Owner of SenojDESIGN.

Originally from the Gulf Coast, Hanna moved to Portland in 1994, where she established her career in Interior Design. From full-room design, down to the details of custom pillows, Hanna believes that design should be “fun, innovative, curious, classic and always comfortable”.

KGC-logoHow did your interest in design develop?

I have always been inspired by color, scale and solving puzzles….hence design being the perfect fit!  There is a beautiful balance between finding solutions and expressing creativity though color, textures and pattern, it is the best of both worlds — math/science and art!.”

KGC-logoWhat has been your key to success?

Creativity, flexibility and listening.  You have to have all 3 create success in the design world I truly believe.”

KGC-logoWhat is the highest compliment you’ve been paid for your work?

Being invited back into the spaces that I create on a social level.  I have wonderful relationships with my clients and we become a team working together to achieve the goal of a space perfectly suited to the individual’s taste, needs, and wish list. Creating these lasting relationships really is a fantastic compliment.”

KGC-logoHow would you describe your design style?

Traditional with a splash of eclectic.”

KGC-logoDo you have any rules? If so, do you ever break them?

No rules.  Except maybe don’t settle for your second favorite.  Surround yourself with items and materials you love.”

KGC-logoWhat is your idea of what a beautiful home should feel like?

A beautiful home is not necessarily one that has a specific aesthetic but rather one that honestly reflects the person or people that live there. If you don’t like wearing dresses and you force yourself into one you won’t be comfortable and those around you can sense that. But when you are comfortable with what you’re in, it shows. This creates a beautiful home — having it reflect you.

A great wool rug, linen drapes and grasscloth walls with a splash of a Greek key somewhere doesn’t hurt though!”

KGC-logoHow would you describe your own home’s interiors?

Timeless.  I keep the large items classic and clean.  Found and collected objects add the touch of antiquity and pops of fun are found in my pillows and art.  I like to change items out when my mood dictates it as well as the seasons, keeping the “pop” items small and less expensive allows me to have a new feel when ever I want.”

KGC-logoWhat inspires your creativity?

Lots!  Movies, magazines, books, travel, food, art, you name it and I can find some inspiration!”

KGC-logoWhat is the most rewarding aspect of your work?

Having clients truly love where they live.  Not just like, or enjoy but LOVE.  It is so important.”

KGC-logoWhat is your favorite room to design, and in which style?

I love living rooms. Creating the floor plan of how we use, traverse and enjoy our spaces is really one big jigsaw puzzle with many solutions!

I also really enjoy small spaces where you can add lots of panache — powder rooms, foyers, even hallways. You can be bold and fun in these spaces…it’s not like you live your whole day in them so you rarely get tired of the punch!”

KGC-logoWhat are some of your favorite finishing touches when designing a room?

Details such as tapes on drapes and ottomans, unexpected textures (I cannot get enough hide and mohair!), a splash of acrylic somewhere and a stack of great books goes a long way.”

KGC-logoWhat are your favorite ways to add color and texture to a space?

I love walls for both color and texture — specifically grasscloth and great wallpapers.  I love to mix up my textures and most are with natural materials such as linen, wool, leather and metals. It is all about the balance of timeless meets modern, cold meets warm, bright meets subdued.  Pillows, throws and a great accent chair are fantastic ways to bring texture in without overdoing it.”

KGC-logoWhat’s your approach to interacting with clients?

Ask then listen.  You may have what you think is the best idea ever for a space, but if the client is not going to be comfortable with it and truly love it, it will show and your design will lack the cohesion that makes a space really shine.”

KGC-logoHow involved in the day-to-day details of a project do you like a client to be?

That is entirely up to them. The process is a lot of fun but some people would rather not be involved with every little decision and others love the process.  Each client and space is unique and I allow the client to decide their level of involvement.”

KGC-logoWhat are the most common decorating mistakes made by homeowners?

Settling. Not surrounding yourself with items you love. They don’t have to match in style but when you adore all the items you live with, it shows.

Also one of my biggest pet-peeves: buying sets of furniture. Mix it up, it will look more edited and curated than buying the chair that goes with the sofa or the whole master suite having the exact same look.”

KGC-logoHow can a homeowner discover their signature style?

Look through magazines and tear out the pages.  Then hand them to someone that doesn’t have an attachment to them and see if they can pick out trends (like a designer!).  Do all of them have tufted upholstery?  Do they all have natural elements?  Are the colors cool/warm/neutral? Clean lines? Rustic wood?  Big art?  Adding a few trends together is what a signature style is all about.”

KGC-logoWhat advice do you have for homeowners reading this interview who are looking to remodel their home?

Compile your wish list of aesthetics and function. Images (Pinterest, magazine pages, saved photos, Houzz, dog-eared book pages) will eliminate communication breakdown between you and the designer and/or contractor. Also, things that you do not like are just as important as ones that you do! When starting a project, it is a process of elimination — eliminating styles, color, textures and materials until we are left with the winning selections!
Also, realistically think about your budget. This is a big one and can keep the process from being exasperating and frustrating. Having a well thought out budget allows the designer to save you time by looking at the appropriate vendors, materials and selections.”

KGC-logoWhat improvements can a person make to their home without spending a lot of money? You pick the room?

Clear clutter, create interest in a handful of items — whether that is paring the room down or amping it up, use your current furniture and re-arrange it throughout the house for a quick change up (yes, the pair of x- benches can be the coffee table or the accent chair in the living room as the entry chair, also swapping rugs around makes a huge difference).
Other big improvements for cheap: touch up your trim with fresh paint, wash your windows and screens, flowers, flowers, flowers, use a magic-eraser (what did we do before these!?) on your cabinets and get some new pillows. Bam — new place!”

KGC-logoWhen you are not designing, what are you doing?

Playing!  Playing in my world consists of: cooking, wine tasting, entertaining, paddle-boarding, cycling, being with my animals, being outside, trying to be close to water, looking for an adventure, traveling and spending time with my amazing partner, friends and family.”

KGC-logoShare something you would like the world to know about you or your ideas.

I am half Icelandic, born and raised on the Gulf Coast and always wear gold jewelry. I am 1 of 5 kids and have a weak spot for lamb and cheese. My nickname is Livet.  I grew up riding dressage and stadium jumping and can sail a boat. Billy Joel is my favorite artist and I am terrified of snakes.  I have traveled all over but the Cayman’s and Slovenia have been some of my favorites.”

Portland Interior Designers: Walls Too Windows


This month, we launch a brand new segment on keithgreenconstruction.com. We’ll be profiling local, talented interior designers, working in Portland, Oregon.

When we came across the work of Patti Marvitz and her interior design company, Walls too Windows, we knew we wanted to showcase it. Fortunately, Patti was happy to answer a few of our questions.

KGC-logoDo you have any rules? If so, do you ever break them?

Rule # one. You are not paying me to tell you what you want to hear. Rule #2. You live here, it is my job to give you want you want to the best of my ability.”

KGC-logoWhat is your idea of what a beautiful home should feel like?

Beauty is defined by the eye of the beholder and everyone’s vision is a bit different.  If it is providing you harmony and balance, then it is beautiful.”

KGC-logoWhat excites you about design these days?

Everything excites me about good design.  I am passionate about what I do.”

KGC-logoWhat is the most rewarding aspect of your work?

I have the best job in the world.  I meet so many wonderful people that invite me in to their most personal spaces.”

KGC-logoWhat was one of your favorite projects to date, and what made it so special?

Two come to mind.  One was a show home, done in a high end Western Theme.  That was sooo much fun.  The second was an Asian influenced design that took top awards (well actually both designs did). That client was amazing and fun to work with.”

KGC-logoWhat’s your approach to interacting with clients?

I really really try to listen to what vision they have and then make that become reality.”

KGC-logoHow involved in the day-to-day details of a project do you like a client to be?

That varies with each client.  Some are excellent at visualizing and are a great asset. Others second guess themselves at every turn.”

KGC-logoWhat are the most common decorating mistakes made by homeowners?

Scale is a big one.  Furniture/accessories/art too big or too small.”

KGC-logoHow can a homeowner discover their signature style?

In my experience, most homes are eclectic and provide a combination of styles.  If done right, this can be very rewarding and interesting.”

KGC-logoWhat advice do you have for homeowners reading this interview who are looking to remodel their home?


KGC-logoWhat improvements can a person make to their home without spending a lot of money? You pick the room.

Clean up any clutter, purge unnecessary stuff and paint.”

KGC-logoWhen you are not designing, what are you doing?

Biking, hiking, lifting weights.”

KGC-logoShare something you would like the world to know about you or your ideas.

I love good wine and good friends.”

Kitchen Remodeling Tips: Making the Most out of a Small Kitchen

Have you ever noticed that everyone always seems to converge in the kitchen? You have a den, living room or family room… and yet the kitchen is where your family so often gathers, and where priceless memories are created.

Having a small kitchen can cramp your style. Fortunately, there are many kitchen remodeling tricks you can use to make a small kitchen look and feel much roomier.


1. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Home designers often use mirrors to fool the eye into thinking a space is much larger than it is. Try adding a mirrored wall or backsplash to your kitchen to create an illusion of grandeur.

2. Glass Cabinetry

Aside from mirrors, there are other ingenious ways to give greater depth to your space. Consider replacing your solid cabinets with glass cabinets, and watch the walls recede. Fill those cabinets with color-coordinated and/or glass dishes to keep the room from looking cluttered.

Glass Cabinets with White and Glass Contents

3. Direct the Eye Upwards

It is well known that high ceilings can make a room look larger. Even if you don’t have high ceilings, you can create the illusion of higher ceilings by directing the eye upwards. To do that, try adding beautiful details to the top of your walls with colorful prints, stunning moldings, or decorative serving dishes.

Direct the Eye Upwards

4. Let the Light in

Brightening up a kitchen can instantly make it look vaster. Try using minimal window treatments to invite natural light. And consider pot lights & streamlined light fixtures to brighten up your kitchen without creating visual clutter.

5. White is Right

As a general principle, to create the illusion of a larger kitchen, ensure that the eye can glide smoothly over the space without stumbling, by avoiding jarring color contrasts.

Sticking to white is an excellent way to reflect the light you have, and make a small kitchen seem vaster. Unfortunately, an all-white kitchen can also look sterile. Consider using different shades of white, and a blend of textures to warm up your decor.

6. Open up the Space

If at all possible, consider opening up a wall to an adjoining room to invite more light and make a small kitchen feel airy.

7. Sleek Cabinetry

Heavy and ornate cabinetry can weigh down a small space. You can make your kitchen feel much roomier by using sleek cabinets with straight lines and minimal adornments. Consider stainless appliances to reflect light.

8. Streamlined Furnishings

Try trading in bulky tables and chairs for streamlined, lightweight furnishings with open legs that let you see through to the wall and give a larger sense of space.

9. Built-in Kitchen Benches

Fit more seating into a small corner with a built-in kitchen bench.  Don’t miss the opportunity for more storage by building in drawers.

10. Expanse of Tiles

You can make a small stretch of wall seem wider by covering it with an expanse of tiles. Consider small pale tiles that are wider than they are tall, to create the impression of width.

11. Recessed Storage

Adding storage cabinets can cut into the square footage of your small kitchen. Try building recessed shelving right into your wall to gain storage without using up valuable floor space.

Cluttered surfaces can make a diminutive space look even smaller. Make the most out of your space, with efficient storage solutions that put everything at arm’s reach while keeping your countertops clear.

Infographic: The Value of 11 Popular Portland Remodeling Projects

Value of Portland Remodeling Projects
Renovating your home offers many benefits, not least of which is the pleasure of living every day in an evironment you love. 

Some home improvements provide the added benefit of boosting the value of your home at resale.

If you live in Portland, Oregon, find out how much of your renovation investment you can expect to recover at resale.

7 Ways to Add Value to Your Home in Portland, Oregon

If you are like most people, your home is one of your biggest assets. Maintaining and renovating your home makes living in it a pleasure. And if you play your cards right, your home improvements will also be reflected in the value of your home when it is time to sell. The challenge is to know where to spend your dollars.

There are several types of remodeling projects that will give you more bang for your buck. Not only will you love the results for yourself, you’ll also recover much of your investment at resale time. According to Henley Wood’s 2014 Costs vs. Value survey data for people living in Portland, Oregon, you should consider the following home improvements to maximize your return on investment and increase the value of your home.

Curb Appeal

A good first impression can definitely boost the value of your home. For instance, according to the survey’s Portland, Oregon data, when you sell your home you can expect to recover:

  • More than 90% of the cost of replacing either your entry door or your garage door.
  • More than 81% of the cost of replacing your windows.

Also consider re-paving your walkway or driveway for an immediate lift, as well as some low-cost cosmetic landscaping.

Basement renovation

How much use are you making of your basement? Invest in remodeling your basement, and you can recover 86% of the costs at resale. Consider proper insulation, drywall and a coat of paint to brighten up the space.

Then, why not transform your basement into a media room, or even a man cave? Remember that adding a bathroom to the basement can significantly boost the value of your basement remodel. This is especially true if you have a separate entry point to your basement, which presents rental income possibilities for future buyers.

Upgrade Kitchens

Our kitchens are the heart of our homes, and where we tend to spend most of our family time. A beautiful upgrade to you kitchen will enhance all of those treasured family moments. The great news is that a kitchen remodel is also likely to significantly boost the value of your home.

According to the survey, if you live in Portland, Oregon, you are likely to recover 78%-82% of your mid-range kitchen remodeling investment at re-sale.

Upgrade Bathrooms

How many of us have inherited dated bathrooms with cheap or even chipped bathroom fixtures? According to the survey, if you remodel your bathroom, you can recoup more than 75% of your investment at sale time.

Consider better lighting, replacing your fixtures, and introducing his and her sinks. Cramped for space? Try adding storage space with a recessed vanity. You may also want to consider some extra perks like a whirlpool tub, steam shower, or heated floors.

Build a Deck or Patio

Building a new deck or patio is a great way to take advantage of those wonderful, summer days. It’s also a great way to increase the value of your home. According to the survey, if you live in Portland, Oregon and build a deck or patio, you can expect to recover 68% to 79% of your investment at sale time.

Keeping Your Home in Top Shape

One of the best ways to reduce the value of your home is not to properly maintain it, so that it deteriorates over time. A leaky roof, for example, can cause extensive damage to the inside of your home. Replacing your roof is a great way to preserve the value of your home and you can expect to recover more than 72% of your investment at sale time.

Low-Cost Improvements

Low-cost improvements such as new rugs and a great paint job can go a long way toward improving the appearance of your home. Just be aware that the unusual paint color you love might be a turn off for future buyers, so consider staying away from bold colors.

Now that you have all the facts, why not set up a renovation plan and budget? You can beautify your living space, while you protect your investment. Just be sure to select a reputable contractor you can trust.
