Portland-based studio Jessica Helgerson Interior Design rehauled a Fort Greene brownstone with furnishings and finishes in bold colors and tactile materials. In the basement lounge area under the stairs, a giant sofa is upholstered in 18 Peruvian blankets that JHID collected over several months. The paintings are by Heather Watkins, a Portland artist. The coffee table is custom design in solid fir, which adds a lighter counterpoint to the Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal paint used in the alcove.
