While living in Chicago, Joanna had already accumulated a collection of treasured pieces with an cozy, earthy style, so making a new home in Portland was a natural fit. However, with the influx of other transplants that were also coming to the city, finding an apartment with charm and space was highly competitive. As luck would have it, Joanna stumbled upon this gem when she was in the neighborhood looking at another apartment. When that space didn't work out, she happened to see a "FOR RENT" sign that had just gone up in the house in front of which she'd parked. Destiny? We think so.
