When I got the email inquiring about consulting on the interiors and decorating of a Portland Tiny House, I was thrilled. These are some of the jobs I love the best. Collaborating with people to make their spaces more magical feeling, more intentional, useful, and beautiful. Genevieve was a wonderful client, and had an incredible Pinterest board of items I already loved, so the vision from the beginning was clear.
I stopped by to take some photographs after the space had been up and running for about a month. It was so great to see my ideas implemented and working smoothly.
When we first began the project, which was a garage her and her husband were converting to turn into an Airbnb, it was a bare space. They originally were going to go with a faux wood flooring, but I convinced them to use a real wood. I am so glad they did! The wood offers such a warm and cozy feel to the place.
We used a lot of white and natural materials to decorate the space. A beautiful and special rug from Kaya Kilims was used as a headboard. I love repurposing rugs in this way. They aren’t only for the floor! Imagine the possibilities!
Other textiles came from collecting at vintage shops.
I like matching tables but mis-matched lamps. I always love having my own bedside lamp and table. From a Feng Shui perspective, it creates balance. The end tables are from Urban Outfitters.
On our install day, I walked into their house, and Genevieve had laid a beautiful spread of snacks out for us to share. Her daughter was around being so sweet and curious throughout the process too. You can tell a lot of love will go into the Portland Tiny House for years to come.

Thank you to Genevieve and the Portland Tiny House! I loved this project and hope to work with more amazing people like this.
