Why we have a crush on this property:

From the vibrant teal exterior to the sunset orange front door, this floating home is eye-catching in the best way. Docked right along the Columbia River, this charming home lives on scenic Hayden Island in Portland, Oregon. At a glance, the multi-angled roof lines and asymmetrical windows marry with the wood siding to give the home a look that is modern, funky, and rustic all at once. When the sun sets, seeing the windows aglow with warm light beckons you inside.

An 800-square-foot interior unfolds across two stories. The first floor comprises a dining area with water views, a one-wall kitchen with a cool golden ceiling treatment, a small but thoughtfully updated bathroom, and a stylish living room with a geometric accent wall.

If the entire space feels artfully designed to you, you’re on to something: The owner is also a painter whose work is characterized by “abstract marks, bold colors, and gold highlights,” according to her website. Upstairs, the spacious bedroom boasts a ladder that leads up to a cozy loft area, as well as direct deck access through a set of glass doors.

Head down the stairs from the upper deck to the larger one below, where you can snuggle into a hammock or pull up a seat by the fire pit and watch the sun go down by the water.
