Bend, Oregon Custom Home

The River House

Nestled in the picturesque beauty of Bend, Oregon, the River House stands as a testament to dreams fulfilled and family legacy embraced. This 3300-square-foot haven, overlooking the tranquil Deschutes river, was born from the vision of a young family with a desire to create a home where memories are made and dreams come true.


Illuminating Details

Special attention is given to lighting, with carefully placed beams in the living room and soffit details in the fireplace. The house comes alive at night, with strategically placed lighting enhancing the overall ambiance.


Design Philosophy

Inspired by the flowing river that graces its surroundings, the River House is designed to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor spaces. The overall aesthetic is light, airy, and infused with a touch of hygge, creating an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. The choice of materials reflects this harmony, with cold concrete tiles juxtaposed against warm wood tones.


Unified Spaces

A unique design feature of the River House is the continuity of materials throughout the space. The tile behind the fireplace matches the island seating, island countertop, sink, and runs along the upper cabinets, creating a cohesive flow. The same material extends to the range wall and into the pantry, unifying the entire living space.

Our Favorite Details:

The fireplace wall is a true work of art, showcasing a seamless blend of tile and a custom wall plaster finish with an ombre effect. Crafted by the skilled hands of Juanita Perdomo from WallsArt, Inc.

Art Deco Meets Nature

The primary bathroom is a blend of elegance and natural elements. From the art deco-inspired floor and sconces to the pebble floor in the shower, every detail is carefully curated. Green watercolor tiles add a touch of nature, creating a calming and romantic retreat.

Powder room drama

The powder room offers a delightful departure from the rest of the house, adding a touch of whimsy and fun. It’s a space where the unexpected meets design, ensuring that every corner of the River House tells a story.

Family-Focused Spaces

The game room, strategically located near the main living area, serves as a hangout for the two preteen boys. Complete with a giant oversized river rock table and artwork from New Zealand, it’s a functional, cozy space designed to accommodate the energy of multiple teenagers.


At the heart of the River House, a custom live edge solid wood table with curved metal legs, designed and crafted by Tim & Celeste of Iron Roots Design. This bespoke creation, showcasing the raw beauty of nature through its live edge and harmonious blend of wood and metal, serves as the focal point of the dining area. Seating eight, it becomes a gathering place where family stories are woven into the very grain of the wood.
