Jennifer Ryan, interior designer and owner of Jennifer Ryan Design, has been featured on the international home design website HOUZZ for a very special design and remodeling project—her personal home in Bellingham. The HOUZZ story includes photos of the home’s interior and exterior, along a story detailing the renovation project, and how Ryan and her husband, Scott Hendrickson, live and work in the home.
“I’m thrilled to see my work and my home on the HOUZZ website,” said Ryan. “I love sharing ideas and getting inspiration from HOUZZ photos from all over the world, but I didn’t expect to be featured when I submitted my own photos of my house.”
Ryan’s home remodeling project began back in 1992, when she purchased what was then a duplex. She started by removing the dividing wall and upstairs kitchen, and returning the 1903 Dutch Colonial to its original single-family layout.
Since then, she’s torn out more walls, removed carpet and linoleum, stripped and painted woodwork, updated the kitchen and remodeled a third-floor attic into a guest bedroom with a common area, plus twin beds for extra guests. The room, which Ryan describes as her “favorite space in the house,” features new skylights, a reclaimed stair railing purchased years ago at an auction, antique metal beds and a cow-print carpet. “It’s bright and fun,” said Ryan.
Houzz is a Palo Alto, California-based web platform for home remodeling and design that offers visual idea sharing for homeowners and home-related professionals. Website visitors can browse photos of kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and more, plus find professionals to complete their projects, from interior designers to contractors.
“As a writer-photographer covering Jennifer Ryan’s home for Houzz, I had the chance to carefully study Jennifer’s home,” said Kimberley Bryan. “The attention to detail in the home is astounding, and the overall effect is edgy romantic with hits of mystery and surprise. Covering Ryan’s home was a real visual treat.”
Jennifer Ryan Design was launched 30 years ago, and has since renovated, updated and decorated thousands of projects from as close as Bellingham to as far away as Hawaii. Services include interior design, remodeling, custom tile design and installation, project management, color consultations, upholstery and soft coverings for homes, offices and boats.
“It’s very gratifying to see my hard work appreciated by the HOUZZ team,” said Ryan.
