What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. Love Your StuffYou’re the boss of your stuff. So whether you crave an austere minimalist space or a bustling artistic one, how much you keep is up to you. There is no magic number of belongings; there is no objectively “perfect” way of being in your home. Does your home make you happy? If the answer is yes, you’re golden.
Who lives here: Emily Katz and Adam Porterfield; their dog, Donut; and their cat, CowbearLocation: Northeast Portland, OregonSize: 1,600 square feet (149 square meters); three bedrooms, 2½ bathroomsYear built: 1906 A floor-to-ceiling embroidered self-portrait of homeowner Adam Porterfield’s girlfriend, Emily Katz, stands as the focal point in the bright and open living room. Some of the couple’s favorite pieces in the home include the driftwood light fixtures, like the one seen here —made as a collaboration between the couple and sold by Porterfield through his company, Golden Rule Design — and their collection of colorful textiles, which includes a kilim rug.The couple describe their joint design aesthetic as “a modern maker-collector home.” Each room is filled with prized finds from their travels and visits to thrift shops and estate sales, as well as pieces by their favorite artisans. The home is also an incubator space that houses prototypes of some of their products in progress.Dream catcher: Anna Korte; mirror: Golden Rule Design
