We asked the designer of this charming rustic home to reveal how it all came together. Garrison Hullinger, the owner and principal designer at Garrison Hullinger Interior Design
in Portland, Ore., expressed how proud he was of the home's construction and design—97 percent of the construction materials and all of the furnishings were made in America. Read along as he shares even more fun details about this inviting space and offers his top designer tips for decorating any home.1. What were you trying to accomplish with the design of this space/project?
These clients wanted a space that felt bright and expansive, yet had a feeling of warmth. We wanted to fill the home, in a small and impactful way, with natural elements (e.g., natural stone in the great room, reclaimed wood in the recreation room, and even using more of the barn wood on the mirror in the guest bathroom). We also wanted the family to feel comfortable in their home and not feel like they couldn't enjoy it every day through the year.
