Decor dream (from 128 USD)

Travel back in time to the 1980’s Art Deco Revival in this beautiful home. This house was built by founder and creator of the Original Gardenburger product, Paul Wenner, and was born from inspiration he got when on a trip at South Beach, Florida. This large, roomy, and comfortable shared living space is a common area for all guests. Make yourself feel at home and perform a little song on the mini stage. How cool is that?! The back wall of the living room is also tastefully decorated with a fiber optic cityscape of fireworks. Can you believe that this faux fireplace was once used as a set piece in a Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers movie? We won’t blame you if you say this is the coolest kitchen you have ever seen in your life. Just look at those shining lights! This funky space looks more like a dressing room for celebrities than a kitchen. Lie on the comfy queen-sized bed, and admire the twinkle from the faux stars as they glimmer in the dark. Or look to the side to observe the bright and cheerful fish as they glide peacefully in the clear waters of the fish tank. The second bedroom includes a single bed for an additional visitor or child. Head to the hot and steamy sauna before cooling off in the bathtub. Don’t you think the dramatic lighting fits the specific areas perfectly?

Doesn’t this beautiful garden look like it is in the middle of a magical forest? The cabin glows at night, the fairy lights glimmering behind the backdrop of the leaves a beautiful and magical sight.

Situated less than a mile (1.6 km) from the University of Portland, this colourful and bright loft is located near restaurants, a fitness centre, farmers’ market, and thrift stores. The loft itself is full of interesting touches, from handcrafted light fixtures to the use of reclaimed wood. Here’s a close up of some of the custom light fixtures in the kitchen. PS: the kitchen shelves were once high school bleachers! Race up those stairs, there is even a side light to guide you up when it gets dark at night. Enter the airy and spacious bedroom, complete with a comfy bed for two and a small desk for any last-minute presentations to be done. Nothing beats the feeling of fresh air on your face. Step outside, the backyard is a wonderful place for you to relax if it gets too stuffy inside.

The hosts have installed a wood-burning stove that warms up in minutes. Admire the stellar views of St. Johns Bridge as you sit around the toasty warm fire pit. This outdoor space can also be used for a night of al fresco dining, giving you the perfect Portland experience! The outdoor living area is a shared space for everyone to use, where various events are held for the community. What are you waiting for? Join in, make new friends, and exchange stories!

Modern "passive" house

Certified as one of the most energy-efficient houses in the United States, this “passive house” means it is primarily heated by the sun and stays warm or cool with the help of airtight insulation. Hence, due to the low power, the energy is offset by roof solar panels, enabling the home to be net-zero energy. Designed and built by PDX Living, the home has been featured in a variety of publications, has been used as a film set, and has been showcased on tours sponsored by the Earth Advantage Institute. A heat-recovery ventilation system delivers fresh, filtered air to each room in the home 24/7/365, great for those with allergies. Some reclaimed features of this house are the crate hardwood floors, high-efficiency multi-colour indirect lighting, custom fixtures throughout, and twist-and-turn triple-pane windows. Embrace Portland in all of its beauty as you chill out on the deck and wave hello to the neighbours across the street!
