COLOR TOUR: Allie’s Creative Chic Southwest Hills Home


Sugar Dust | 0011

Nestled in Portland’s Southwest HIlls, Allie’s 1954 home transcends eras with its Sugar Dust | 0011 exterior and Into the Stratosphere | 0627 trim. The wood front door and established plants add texture and warmth to the classic color scheme.

Allie spends much of her workday on video calls in her home office, and she knew she wanted a vibrant color behind her. Warm Fuzzies | 0830 was just the hue to bring the sunshine inside.

Serene Setting | 0622

Allie and John’s bedroom is truly a calming space with its Serene Setting | 0622 walls and ceiling. Monochromatic drapery takes the cool color story even further.

Another corner of the Serene Setting | 0622 primary bedroom. We love how the dark wood and simple accessories honor the cool blue.

In Fletcher’s room, creativity and imagination run wild! Allie and her son designed this hand-painted mural using Island Breeze | 0693, Peninsula | 0654, Mystic Tulip | 1064, and Casa de Oro |1026 for groovy waves and Tropical Heat | 1082 for a glowing sun.

Featherstone | 0229

Sons Fletcher and Riley share this bathroom in the lower level of the house. Bold accents look right at home with the warm neutral of Featherstone | 0229 on the walls.


Place of Dust | 0539


Captain Nemo | 0542

The boys use this basement bonus room for building projects and playing games with friends, and it was the perfect place for one more fun mural! Allie used Place of Dust | 0539 and Captain Nemo | 0542 to paint the abstract gray shapes.
