Steal This Look: A Modern Townhouse on a Tight Budget
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Craig Olson and Sean Igo are the founders of Canoe , one of our favorite go-to Portland shops and an early online presence for good design. A while back, when we heard they were renovating a vacation home in Phoenix, we asked them to keep us posted. They did, and the results are impressive. Working with a tight budget of $40K, the duo turned a foreclosed mustard-yellow-walled-purple-staircased-shag-carpeted townhouse into a simple, clean space, outfitted with midcentury classics As Olson notes, "The project was more about creating an easy, casual, calm space rather than a lux vacation home." N.B.: We will be featuring the renovation process in an upcoming Rehab Diaries; in the meantime, here's a Steal This Look on the living area.
