Problem/Solution Kitchen

Cars still had running boards when Diana and Jonathan Cathey's kitchen was built in 1941. Clearly, an update was long overdue.

Room at the Top

Perry Heitman had a tall order for his small house: Add a full-featured master suite, complete with sitting room, atop a one-story bungalow-- without making the house an awkward fit for its historic Portland, Oregon, neighborhood.

Collecting can be a birthright passed on from parents, or a personal path traveled over a lifetime. But building a beautiful collection doesn't require either a legacy or a lifelong commitment. Sara and David Gomez weren't born with antique spoons in their mouths, and they haven't spent years on the prowl. Still, their collection of McCoy pottery and other love-at-first-sight pieces creates a joyful, cohesive look-- and a fresh palette-- for their Portland, Oregon, home.
