Portland’s Color Scheme

Our trip to Portland this summer got me so inspired about modern-but-still-classic color schemes, especially on the exterior of homes.

I think one of my favorite things about Portland is the homes. We stayed in an airbnb in a family’s basement and the interior and exterior were both so beautiful. In fact, driving down any street you will be able to feast your eyes on some beautiful homes. The architecture style is often Craftsman, Arts and Crafts, Bungalow, and my personal favorite–one of those I previously mentioned plus modern additions and revisions. A modern fusion, perhaps. There’s even a cool hashtag for those on instagram– #housemullet.

My computer is giving me some problems, so I can’t create an inspiration board or anything for you right now. So how about some eye candy?

I think the magical combination is natural wood + soft green (or earthy purple) plus a pretty punch of matte black. Something to contemplate as the fall approaches… pretty color scheme for a dinner party, or a small room refresh, or outfit!
