Bottle + Kitchen at Hotel Rose

Hotel Rose, located in Portland, Oregon, received a complete renovation inside and out. The lower level restaurant was remodeled into a restaurant, bar, and two meeting spaces. The directive, Alice in Wonderland meets Gastro Pub, led to the color, texture, and unique materials which accomplished the vision. The restaurant and bar flooring design was 1 of 5 winners for Interior Design Magazine Product of the Year 2014, in the GLITZ category.


Guest Rooms at Hotel Rose

The new design incorporated the color from the first floor renovation in the new guestroom and suite.


Meeting Space at Hotel Rose

The meeting spaces are attached to the Bottle+Kitchen restaurant and incorporate many of the colors, textures, and patterns from the neighboring lounge.

University Inn

This 1950’s hotel was recently renovated with a nod to the same era. Zebra custom carpet and window coverings are paired with contemporary furniture and sliding, barn-style doors.



Thailand Restaurant

The original space was twice the size, outdated, and darker than the owner wanted. The goal was to create a rich space with a mix of contemporary and traditional elements. While all of the artwork came from Thailand, we offset the traditional feel with contemporary chairs, table tops, flooring, and lighting. A particular highlight is the rock wall and bar.

Groaning Board

Groaning Board is a pub serving British fare on the waterfront in Portland, Oregon. The design incorporates deep color, locally made lighting fixtures, and a bar back made from reclaimed wood and crate boxes.


Bamboo Thai

Previously a night club, the owners of this space wanted to be able to accommodate large parties without the 3,800 square feet of dining space becoming overwhelming. There needed to be an elegant bar that felt separate without requiring the use of full walls. To achieve the dream, we gutted the space and started nearly from scratch. Beams were wrapped in rock. Bamboo planters and draperies were added to make it feel less cavernous. The original hardwood floors were refinished. A lounge was created when we redesigned an existing raised area into a comfortable space for seating. The artwork was commissioned for the space and hangs on the walls, shown off by the various light fixtures and fabric textures throughout.


D-Wa Cafe

Formerly a burger shack, the space was transformed into a casual dining experience. The design goal was to create a space where people could feel comfortable sitting for hours while surfing the web or grabbing food to go. With a nod to the local families and the technology company employees in the area, D-Wa even featured a self-service Thai Iced Tea station. The pink elephant, which became the cafe logo, was designed to incorporate that feel of Portland. Even though it is a Thai restaurant, the contemporary finishes, furnishings, and bold, light colors are a contrast to the more traditional Thai restaurant feel.


Second Floor Lounge

The challenge: design a tapas lounge that can be transformed into a nightclub every day. Many of the design elements needed to be stored during the night club’s hours. Before starting, the overall appearance was dark and sexy, but cold. To balance that air, we took inspiration from fire, as flames are warm, alluring, and sultry. We used orange, black, taupe, and graphic designs to bring in warmth while still working with the club’s current design. Privacy panels were added for each booth, and wall sconces and table candles added a warm glow. We hid the DJ booth behind back-lit panels.



 “We are looking forward to working with Ida and her team in the future.”
