One of the many things I love about summer in Oregon is the annual Portland Street of Dreams! The new show opens this weekend and I'll be there, snapping pictures left and right to share the best - and the worse - of what I spy.
Remember the never to be forgotten kitchen (and I'm not saying that in a good way) from last year?!
An all time favorite design was from a few years back when the show was moved from the sprawling lots in the country and suburbs of previous seasons to several condo building downtown in the Pearl. This penthouse was designed by local Interior designer Kimberlee Jaynes.
Named 'An Uncommon Life," these spaces captured my imagination. Touring the space I encountered several magical moments. What an absolute pleasure to see design with a unique vision. Kimberlee Jaynes, along with design associate Richard Rolfe brought warmth, patina and wit to a cool modern space.
Look below. The color, texture and old finds mix beautifully with the steel framed view...restful, but with a reminder not to linger too long, the city is waiting below. A pocket office is tucked into the closet space, utilizing every corner of this 2,000 square foot home.
The "Longing" sculpture immediately caught my eye. It is surrounded by views out to the terrace and city, icy blue walls, pillow covered chaises alongside a dramatically simple fireplace...I could long for a space such as this!
Out on the expansive terrace, unusual outdoor decor...toss in a coin and make a wish.
Buddha in a Bird Cage? Oddly poetic and beautiful sitting in front of the shimmering silver leaf covered wall.
I simply can't wait to see what is discovered at this year's show!!
