6 TIPS TO TRY FROM A MID-CENTURY MASTER / GREGORY AIN

Embrace-natural-assets GREGORY AIN

There is nothing I’d like better than to settle into a sweet mid-century home in sunny, Southern California. However, I live in rain-ridden Portland, and moving to L.A. isn’t happening. Plan B: I’d like to design a house that has aspects of what I love about said mid-century honeys, while still working with the vibe […]

PORTLAND MODERN HOME TOUR / SERA ARCHITECTS

Sera-Architects-exterior

The Modern Home Tour hit Portland this weekend. It went something like this: Get prepped for the rain. Run from my car, through the rain, to a house. Look, adore, admire. Run back through the rain to the car. Repeat. Oh, I forgot there was a break for lunch/beer in there somewhere. I did have […]

The Made Stately series is back. I have been struggling with this series for quite some time, because it’s REALLY HARD to find modern design that’s worthy of the Made & State pages in every state. Not that each state doesn’t carry intrinsic value on some level, but modern American made design, not necessarily. So […]

I’M A HOME-TOURING GOOD TIME

PORTLAND MODERN HOME TOUR

Home tours are good, home tours with me – really good. Here are a couple of reasons why (oh, and welcome to the Portland Modern Home Tour, 2013): 1) I usually say something not so flattering about the house, WHILST the homeowner is within earshot, by accident of course. Good time. And a good time […]

MADE STATELY / ALASKA

ALASKA ARCHITECURE

  It’s week two of our Made & State MADE STATELY series, and as you can see Alaska is our state “de jour.” I don’t really speak French, but I like to inject it into my writing for affect. Anyways, back to Alaska. While it is a mecca for some, like outdoorsy enthusiasts, it isn’t […]
