You'd never know by looking at it now, but Nick and Risa's beautifully liveable
Portland home was in shambles when they bought it —sight unseen!—as a fixer-upper project. A major part of all that "fixing" was converting the old kitchen into the powder room and adding an addition for a new kitchen, all of which they did themselves. Now the kitchen is their favorite part of the home. As Risa says, it's "where I spend most of my time - cooking, eating, entertaining, working and coloring with my daughter."

Love the look? Risa and Nick gave a detailed kitchen resource list to Apartment Therapy:

    • Counter tops are white Carrera marble fabricated and installed by Classico Marmo • Rift Sawn Fumed White Oak island counter top from The Joinery in Portland • Cabinets are stained Rift Sawn White Oak • Electrolux 36" Dual Fuel Range and Refrigerator • Miele Dishwasher • Heath Salt & Pepper Shaker • Collection of vintage Dansk pepper grinders • Hansgrohe Faucet • Small oil paintings by Malaika Zweig • Architecture black & white photo by Risa • Brass chandelier by Risa, inspired by Lindsey Adelman's 'You Make It' Chandelier' DIY project • Vintage grey glass pendant by unknown
