Osmose Design enlivens a 1930s residence with eccentric, handcrafted details.
In a home full of delightful surprises, it’s only fitting that its origin story involves a dash of serendipity: When designer Andee Hess was contacted by musician Charlie and her husband, Todd, to remodel the kitchen in their 1930s Tudor home in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, they discovered they were already acquainted—not only did they share mutual friends, but they were also fans of each other’s work.

After: Living Room Fireplace
This spirit of creative kinship extended to the design process with the founder of Osmose Design drawing from myriad influences such as boat casework, Greek caves, and the American studio craft movement for a remodel that would expand beyond the kitchen. Overhauling previous work done to the Tudor, the project would reimagine the living room fireplace, an underused niche, and the main floor bathroom. Hess used sweeping plaster forms, handcrafted wood elements, and statement tile for a look that’s organic, bohemian, and entirely unexpected.
