Meanwhile back at the Ranch...

I recently had the opportunity to go to the musical, OKLAHOMA,at the Gerding Theatre in Portland, Oregon.  It inspired me to blog about the guest house design project for my longtime client in the west hills above Skyline. This last spring, photographer Adrienne  had a chance to photograph it finally. She was intrigued by the beauty of the property. It is truly a special home. The guest house is kind of special also. It was fun seeing her take photos. I remember her running down to gently greet the horses that were out in the fields. It was nice to see her joy in capturing these images.She is a delightful professional. I hope to work with her again.
   At the end of the summer my client had a huge barn dance. It was an event  that was truly the highlight  of the summer.
The Over scaled Hounds tooth chenille on the wall mounted headboard is from Glant Textiles.See link below. Available through The wool blankets are from
The Silver and turquoise bolo add a sense of humour to the skirt of this chair covered in a fabric from kravet.

Settle in for a crisp Autumn evening in front of this fireplace mantle.
Relax on this sofa covered in Clarence House fabric. While sipping a glass of wine enjoying the view of the duck pond and the main house a couple hundred yards away.

The crewel work pillow is also a fabric from Clarence House.

Back side of the pillow covered in the crewel is from Mark  Pollack.

Oh what a beautiful morning to wake up in this guest house above the stables. To see more of my work, please go to the links at the top of this page. To make an appointment for your unique design project give me a call at 503-367-0920 or email me at
