It rains a lot in Portland. In fact, it ranks third in the country for the wet stuff, with 164 rainy days annually. Residents have to adjust as best they can; one of the best ideas is a cheerfully painted home. Not insanely bright, not modern farmhouse all white, but just enough color to lift the spirits after the sixth day of rain in a row.
The owners of this sweet bungalow, which could be considered English Cottage style, have taken that idea to heart, starting from the front door. The arched door gives a hint of the deliciousness within with a color lifted from a mango sorbet, a light, sweet orange. That enters into a jewelbox living room with the original fireplace, blue painted ceilings, some blue furniture, and some more sorbet colored chairs. Not also the handsome pointed archways, repeated throughout the ground floor.
That same blue can be found in the kitchen’s painted cabinets. The kitchen boasts a quartz island, high end appliances, and a breakfast nook. There are four bedrooms in all: two above and two in the finished lower level. The lower level includes a family room, fireplace, the other bathroom, two bedrooms, and high ceilings. It’s adorable how the owners have carefully kept the original bathrooms, including a spanky green sink. Another super cute touch and an idea worth stealing is a display of vintage globes in a bedroom.
