Scandinavian-Style Makeover  

A Hamptons Beach Retreat Gets a Scandinavian-Style Makeover  


Taking cues from their style-conscious clients, Portland-based Jessica Helgerson Interior Design transforms an Amagansett home into a light-filled, Scandinavian-inspired getaway.

Jessica Helgerson and Chelsie Lee ofJessica Helgerson Interior Design just happened to be in New York City when they were asked to work on a home in Amagansett, a small beach town in the Hamptons. "The NYC-based clients found us online," says Lee, the senior designer on the project. "We met up with the owner for coffee and knew right away we wanted to work with her." 

Partnering with local architecture firm TBD Design Studio, they explored several different plan options for the 3,000-square-foot home. Ultimately, the changes were significant—nearly every room shifted.

The designers bleached the original oak floors and added wood planks and beams to the ceilings, painting them white to maintain a minimal, Scandinavian approach to all new millwork and cabinetry.

The kitchen expanded to a location where there had been a screened-in porch, increasing its interior footprint.

After hearing about their aesthetic aspirations, we felt inspired to pour all of our design energy into radically transforming their house.

When it came to furnishing the home, the designers took cues from their cool and stylish clients—and were inspired by their personal taste when selecting furniture, lighting, and art.

The decor also includes special bespoke furniture such as the armoire, kitchen island, and a desk that were designed in-house by Lee and Helgerson, then crafted in Portland and shipped to Amagansett.

Neutral natural leathers, handmade ceramic tiles, nubby wools, and wood add warmth and an organic quality to the mix.
