Casey Keasler values experiential knowing. The creator of interior decoration company Casework just recently finished an almost five-year remodelling of her 1966 Portland, Oregon, house, which she passionately calls the “Ranchalow” thanks to its ranch-meets-bungalow ambiance. “I utilized your house as a little a testing room,” the designer states. “Doing a great deal of the work myself provided me a much better understanding of the information and procedure, which reinforced the style in addition to my relationships with suppliers and tradespeople.”
In developing a style plan for the 1,250-square-foot midcentury house that would match her requirements and show her individual design, Casey followed the exact same procedure as she provides for all her customers. “We are extremely determined as we establish the combination and vision, and constantly set 3 crucial expressions,” she describes. For her own house they are: “golden hour”– the heat and radiance of that actually stunning September sunlight; “simple like Sunday early morning”– house as a functional, comfy, easygoing reprieve; and “ranchalow”– a color and products combination that harkens to midcentury cattle ranch houses and 1920s Artisan cottages.
Upon getting in the home in the center of the one-story house, big windows flood the front location with light, while the primary seating location is tucked comfortably within 3 walls– an ideal setup for a sectional and tv plus shelving. “I have good friends over a lot to hang out, play cards and parlor game, and see motion pictures,” the designer states.
