Name: Anisa Makhoul & Graeme Nelson Location: Portland, OR Size: 1200 square feet Years lived in: 4 I visited Anisa and Graeme’s home in SE Portland on a rainy, gloomy, winter’s day. Stepping inside was a lovely escape from gray. You can feel the love that has gone into updating and furnishing this home. It had me wanting to take cello lessons in the bright dining room or cook a 5 course meal in their spaciously renovated kitchen!
Makool Loves You. Graeme is a freelance web developer. Together they have created an inspired home. There is a sense of history here that can’t be denied. The windows are original to the house and have the character that old windows do. The pine floors and reclaimed wood cabinets in the kitchen give it a rustic quality that doesn’t overwhelm, but is very satisfying. The farmhouse sink they’ve added to the kitchen looks right at home next to their other more modern appliances. There is balance in this house. Old and new, colorful and calm, kitsch and class. The overall effect is a lovely space designed for living.
Get Back, Inc., they don't even list their prices online, but I dream of owning most their site
