Whether it’s a Holiday feast or a never ending game of monopoly, the family table is an fundamental piece of our culture.

Standard TV & Appliance’s recently-renovated Bend showroom was abuzz Friday with delicious appetizers, artisan gifts, and partygoers to celebrate Oregon Home’s latest issue. The event was a resounding success – thank you to all who joined us in celebration of the local home industry.
A review by Brennan Conaway
Portlanders love to re-think basic assumptions about house and home. We transform lawns into vegetable gardens, houses into urban farms, backyards into chicken runs, and change garages to ADUs. We are always re-imagining our city and how we live in it, always experimenting, so it’s no surprise that the latest tiny house film is all about Portland.
The changing of seasons brings the desire to freshen our interiors and give new life to the forgotten spaces in our homes. But sometimes we need a creative boost to get started.
When is it time to bring in professional designers? The Prewetts, who own a cozy home in Southwest Portland, were not initially convinced they should take such action when tasked with remodeling their living and dining rooms. But after considering taking on the project themselves, they quickly realized they could use professional help.
Light and color require balance. Without light there would be no color. Without color our homes would be unbearably bland. It is only because of light encountering an object that we are able to see it. And when we do see that wall or chair or art, it should make us smile. Or, better yet, take our breath away.
