I had never been to Oregon (or the PNW for that matter) before we moved out to this region last summer, but let me tell you: there is a reason why Portland is so trendy these days. Although it's changing and growing a ton, along with the rest of the Upper Left, there's still a lot of the city's original character to see.
Bonney's 1904 Portland home is one of those character spots that is standing the test of time. From Bonney:
There is a tribute in every corner of this home, perhaps to someone Bonney knows intimately or an unknown person whose beloved belongings ended up in a thrift store and are now cherished here. In the same way, Bonney is also paying tribute to the homeowners before her by living in and loving this space today.
You know what's also never a mistake? Using said vintage rug as a headboard - pure brilliance, Bonney!
And even though they may occasionally suffer from short life spans, Bonney also will never turn down a good plant.
This home is nothing if not warm, welcoming, and nostalgic. Bonney, thank you so much for welcoming us in!
