Our home, which I lovingly call the #1927funkycottage on Instagram, was built in 1927 in the Piedmont neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. It's a three level home, with a finished basement we recently remodeled, and it's two-bedroom, one bathroom. We plan to add a third bedroom and a second bath in the next few years. I am a PR Director for a large cannabis company and my husband Etai Rahmil is a glass pipe artist. We live here with our two cats, our dog Cricket, and about 65 house plants.
We've styled it in a way that truly fits both of our personalities. The home is filled with my plant obsession, which pairs nicely alongside Etai's collection of Bay Area street art prints. Both of those elements also feel great alongside the wood and vintage collection we've got going on.
As first-time home owners, we've tried to be very intentional about building a home that we both love. We've lived in eight spaces in nine years together, so having a real home base for the first time in our adult lives has given us both such a sense of peace. We love our home so much, and while there are always things we would change, we've had so much fun making it our own and look forward to seeing it continue to evolve.
Describe your home's style in 5 words or less: Art-forward Funky Vintage Jungalow
What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room is the living room. We were seeking an open concept home with vintage charm and we definitely found it, but we had some space restrictions that felt limiting at first. I think what we've landed on is an arrangement that speaks to both form and function, and allows us to live comfortably in the space, while also celebrating our personal styles and our love for plants.
Etai found the green velvet couch and bench at Anthropologie, and we discovered the coffee table at World Market while we were waiting for our custom order to come. The combination of those two things, along with the custom cabinet and dining table from Knot Steel Co, and the custom bench from my brother Dakota, allows the room to be very multi-use and flexible. I think we'll continue adding plants in that room for years to come!
What's the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last room we finished since we moved in was the basement. It was a ton of work but I'm really happy with where it landed—and we use it every day!
We recently hung up a big piece of driftwood that we found on the Oregon coast to finish off one of the walls down there. We draped air plants and hung some small low-light friendly potted plants down there and I'm loving how it turned out.
Any advice for creating a home you love? My husband Etai is the more logical one when it comes to making purchases, while I can get excited easily and want to buy anything I love. My biggest piece of advice if you live with a partner is to only buy things that you both love. Any time we're looking for an item, we consider many options before making a purchase. It's helped us be very intentional and has allowed us to curate a space that we both love.
