So, you’ve been following along with the Portland traditional fixer upper on all EHD social channels (we’ve storied this a TON), read up on the renovation plans we’ve hit on so far on the blog like what color the front door should be, some of you have even offered up your furniture/art/home goodies for the staging of the home…AND NOW IT’S TIME TO ACTUALLY SEE THIS BABY IN PERSON. As a reminder, Team EHD will be at the Dunthorpe residence Saturday (tomorrow!), July 21 from 3 to 7 pm.

The house is officially on the market as of yesterday, July 19, and you can see the listing here with all the juicy details.

A few reminders if you’re coming to the open house/party:

  • Shoot us a quick email at hello@emilyhendersondesign.com with an RSVP subject line to let us know you’re coming so we can plan for all of you (you may get an out of office notice from the email, but don’t worry…we’re seeing the messages roll in).
  • Please don’t wear stiletto heels (gotta protect these gorgeous floors for the future buyer).
  • Either take a car-sharing service (Uber/Lyft) or park near the Riverdale Grade School at 11733 SW Breyman Ave. and take the shuttle over (we’ll have someone coming around regularly to pick you guys up and bring you to the house). There will be no parking on site, so pretty please plan accordingly.

For anyone not able to come, here are a few more sneak peeks so you feel sort of kind of like you’re here. We’ll be shooting the whole home starting next week for the blog, so stay tuned for FULL REVEAL posts comin’ atcha later next month and beyond.

Okay, okay, we know you’re here both for the listing details and those sneak peeks, so here you go:

We’re excited for everyone able to attend on Saturday to see the house and to meet you all. See you then! Xx


  1. Wow!! The house you have created with your brother is amazing! Wish I could be there tomorrow to see it all in person.



  2. Spectacular!

  3. HGTV should let you design the their next dream home.

  4. Gorgeous! Congrats, Emily!

  5. Oh I wish I could come, it looks soo good!

  6. Oh Wow! I’d live there in a heartbeat. BRAVA!

  7. Looking forward to it!

  8. That is such a chi chi neighborhood. I would say it is easily the most old money neighborhood in Portland and is chock a block full of mansions and very exclusive public schools! 😳 That is crazy you did a house there. 15+ years ago I was a temporary nanny and worked in several homes around there. They are magnificent. And it is an OLD neighborhood with very large, very private wooded lots that Portland’s elite have lived in for over a century. You guys scored on the location choice.

  9. Are the stair balusters custom? Or could I order from somewhere? I’ve been looking everywhere for a link!

    1. I’d love to know the answer too. I love them!

    2. Me too!!! 👌

    3. I would love to know also!!

    4. I am looking for that as well! Will be waiting to hear!

  10. Anyone know where the rug is from in the post picture? Looks like gray and white checkered…

  11. So gorgeous! Please tell us where you sourced the bed frame. Thank you!!

  12. Oh My Goooosh! If I lived in Portland and had a bag full of money, I would be all over this! I hope you post more about this house. It is really beautiful.

  13. Sooo gorgeous! I’m going to glean as much inspiration from this as I can!

  14. So Beautiful!

  15. It’s really beautiful. The kitchen and outdoor spaces are especially dreamy. Congrats to your team! Hope you have a speedy sale.

  16. That master bath is so beautiful it makes me cry. Love this house. It’s so, so, so good.

  17. Tapping my toes, waiting for the video tour! Looks pretty fabulous and not typical of Emily’s more eclectic style. Love it.

  18. Can’t wait to see this beautiful home in person this afternoon and there will be two others with me

  19. Can you tell me what the color of the kitchen cabinets is? Thanks

  20. It’s gorgeous, Emily! Once again, you’ve knocked it out of the park! 💗

  21. LOVE the colors of the cabinets in the kitchen and wet bar, the outdoor fireplace and the crazy laundry room sink!

  22. I’d be interested to see who is the artist of the painting in the master bedroom. Please??

    1. Me too!

  23. Stunning! I have been a long time fan and i truly think this is one of your best works. Congrats!

  24. Gorgeous!!!! So refined and informal at the same time. Some of my favorites of your work yet!!!! Bravo Emily and team. 👏👏👏

  25. WOW this is absolutely stunning!!! I want to be in it. It’s really inspiring as we renovate our house. We aren’t super traditional but this shows how you can incorporate traditional elements without it feeling super traditional. Nice work!! Where is the plaid couch from????

    1. Plaid couch is Schoolhouse Electric!

  26. Please share details on the stair railing and balusters!! It’s exacrly what I’ve been looking for — perfect
    compromised between straight & squared ans ovey ornate twists & birdcage.

  27. Gorgeous! I can’t wait to see the source list on a few items.

  28. Sneak PEEK pleeeSSSEEE!!!

  29. Wow. Perfection! One question, What is the last picture in the listing photos? I’m puzzled.

    1. I wondered the same thing… Bocce ball court? Future pool? The home is amazing.

  30. Wow! I hope you and your brother make a boatload of money and then do this again and again and again until you don’t have to work unless you want to! You’ve turned this old beauty into a place that can provide happiness and memories to another few generations. AND THAT is good work. (Kudos to your devoted team as well!)

  31. Beautiful home ! Well done!I would love to see the resource list on the rugs

  32. So interesting to see the difference between the listing photos vs the preview photos further down in the post! Styling and photos can make such a difference (I mean in knew that but it just really struck me…) The listing pics did not really grab me but the sneak peak pics I was totally loving it!

  33. Absolutely gorgeous!!!!

  34. dream home indeed… well done!

  35. How dare you make this house so gorgeous! I’m offended! Seriously though, it’s so pretty it hurts.

  36. Throughout, the most beautiful home and style I have seen in a very long time. Perfection. Sources please! Especially floors, paint, stair rail, living room chair and rug. Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration!

  37. You have outdone yourself! This is truly a wonderful interior. I love that the whole house is done and that we can see the consistent style across the whole thing. Also, that staircase is to die for!! My favorite thing in the whole place, I think. The owners will barely have to furnish or decorate because all that architectural detail carries the home.

  38. I seriously could not BELIEVE how many people were there last night! It was crazy! The house was amazing, I was thoroughly impressed. The styling was fantastic, so many wonderful pieces and touches in every room. I’m super curious: were you guys able to stay in your original budget? And I assume the landscaping was not included in those original numbers, how much (and who did you use, I live here and need to redo my yard! ) did that add to the budget? We’ve never met (and certainly couldn’t happen yesterday, that line to meet you was crazy long, ha!) but I know most of your family and it was so nice catching up with your mom. Congrats on the project, you and Ken make a great team!!

  39. I would almost jump on a plane for the insanely long flight from Australia to see this magnificent beauty in the flesh. Just, WOW.

  40. Stunning! Wish I could be there to see it in person!

  41. Wow, ah-mazing! The whole house is so beautiful, and I think I would actually enjoy doing laundry if I could do it in that laundry room!

  42. Awesome!
    Well Done!


  44. Truly stunning, the owner-to-be is surely lucky!

  45. You may have addressed this, but what do you do with all the new furnishings, bedding, art, etc that you used to stage the house? Does it get donated, thrown out, resold? Just wondering, as it all looks very beautiful and high end

  46. I love the ivory curtains! Where did you get them from ?

    1. They are from Decorview!


    Such a beautiful transformation

  48. Who did the beautiful rails?

  49. What color are the kitchen cabinets? Absolutely love! Beautiful home!

  50. What color are the kitchen cabinets?

  51. Where can I buy the stairway bannister?
