COLOR TOUR: A Beautifully Updated Vintage Home in the Kenton Neighborhood


Midnight Wanderer | R017


Dried Hydrangea | R074

Tucked into North Portland’s Kenton Neighborhood, this updated 1925 home features rich Midnight Wanderer | R017 siding and an inviting Dried Hydrangea | R074 door from the new Miller Paint Northwest Collection along with a rebuilt porch, new lighting and contemporary accents.


Urban Calm | R031


Coal Black | R090

Clean, crisp and high contrast! Step inside Virginia’s home and you’ll be greeted by a sophisticated neutral palette that includes Urban Calm | R031 walls and Coal Black | R090 banister and trim.


Stone Fence | R026

The welcoming living area on the main floor celebrates the family’s love of music and art. A coastal painting by Virginia’s mother in law and a deep blue rug complement the Stone Fence | R026 walls in this space.


Stone Fence | R026

The family dog Polly is ready for her people to join her in this serene space. An updated fireplace surround in white tile strikes a beautiful contrast with the creamy Stone Fence | R026 walls.


Urban Calm | R031


Raven Grass | R072

An open concept kitchen and dining area is unified by warm, neutral Urban Calm | R031 walls. We love how Raven Grass | R072 accents and defines the bar-style seating at the kitchen counter.


Soft Sea Glass | R062

A great place to have a casual meal or just relax, Raven Grass | R072 defines the heart of the kitchen. A sweet pop of Soft Sea Glass | R062 makes the mud room at the back of the kitchen a point of interest.



Soft Sea Glass | R062

Polly supervises the kitchen from the adjoining mudroom, where she can access the backyard and her dog bowls. Inspired by the colors of the Pacific Northwest, Soft Sea Glass | R062 connects the inside of the home with the outdoors.


Bedtime Blue | R084

The white furniture, lighting and bedding in the en suite is beautifully contrasted by rich, moody Bedtime Blue | R084 walls. Warm accents tie this space together to create one of our favorite colorful bedrooms!


Dusk Cloud | R073

On the upper level of the home, Virginia has an airy and light home office space, for which she selected cool Dusk Cloud | R073.


Chickpea Please | R128

The nursery is also upstairs, and feels warm and modern with its Chickpea Please | R128 walls and complementary rug. Natural elements and textures work well with this cozy hue.
