Guys, the Portland house goes on the market next week, which is just crazy. Half of my team is up there this week prepping it for some upcoming events and I come up on Sunday to finish the install and get it ready for the realtor open house July 19 and general open house on the 21 (where anyone is welcome and I’d love to meet any of you). I’m incredibly excited and yes, very nervous about the deadline and frankly revealing this project that has been insane to design and manage from afar with my schedule. Hopefully, there are a few buyers interested in this 5,000-square-foot custom home (that can be sold fully furnished) in the best school district, with almost an acre of land. I know all of you are wondering for how much it will be listed and I’ll wait for the listing to come out to tell you the exact amount, but it will be between $2.5 – 3 million. Let’s get to some sneak peeks (pardon the tape, dust and tools throughout…it’s still a work in progress), shall we?
FRONT ENTRY & STAIRCASE:
MEDIA ROOM WET BAR:
Now, some last minute details:
We likely still need art for the install, so if you are an artist in Portland and interested in your work being placed in the house and photographed, credited, etc., let us know (shoot us an email at [email protected]) and if it’s the right fit, we’d borrow it with the potential of the future owner buying the pieces. We could also use some smalls, pillows, textiles and accessories. If you are local and have a shop that we could come and look at to pull from we would love to showcase your items.
We would also love food and drink recommendations for the party—any good catering or microbrews out there in Portland looking for some exposure at a fun party with lots of influencers? Reach out and let us know.
If you want to come see the house and hang out with me and my crew, then head over to the Dunthorpe neighborhood next Saturday, July 21 between 3 pm and 7 pm. Parking will be an issue near the house, so park near Riverdale Grade School (11733 SW Breyman Ave.); we’ll have shuttles that can take you over to the house. Keep an eye on my Instagram next week (and the Friday before) as we’ll share more details over there as the date approaches.
For anyone wondering what the plans are in terms of blogging about the home being that it’s going to be for sale VERY soon, fear not because we have a ton of posts in the pipeline (progress posts with all the nitty gritty as well as all the final reveals which we’re shooting in the coming weeks…lots of fun stuff to share as soon as we can).
In the case that you’re itching to know more about what’s in these rooms and can’t wait for the final reveal, here are some of the resources:
- Entry: Staircase
