June and Joe moved from LA to Portland just 1 month ago, and yet their nest is already perfectly decorated.  The house was built in 1910 and most of it’s design is authentic, which means a totally adorable kitchen, and wooden windows.  Junes proves her great sense of style and design (she is also a fierce thrifter), mixing Antiques and mid-century furniture in an eclectic – and perfect way.  Decorated on a budget, this home is stylish and filled with vintage treasures.

Hello friends and readers!   You may have noticed that Boat People has shifted into the summer speed and is enjoying the sun, just like you are.  The store is still open, of course, and we have a killer summer sale coming up next week, so please stay tuned for more!  But you know, slowing down and taking time to smell the flowers is necessary!  Plus it’s  relaxing, and inspiring.   We are already super exited for the FW11 collection launch coming in august!  But until then, let’s chill!

So, 1/2 of Boat People is « gone fishing » in Portland Oregon.  Yup, I’m (Ari) visiting some friends here for the next weeks.  I’ve arrived yesterday, after an horrible overnight transfer in Newark and a 6h flight stuck beside a dude who forgot to shower after his 40k marathon!  Gosh!  

The Sellwood neighborhood my hosts live in is very very charming, 1 block away from a cute street filled with vintage furniture stores.  As their owners, June and Joe’s home is lovely and romantic… and packed with amazing vintage finds!  I’ll post pictures of my trip as it goes along.  For now, meet the neighborhood’s cow-cat that’s hanging out with me right now!

Enjoy your week and don’t forget to comment to earn your chance to win a vintage look!!

Bon lundi chers lecteurs/trices!  Quel joli weekend!  J’en ai profité pour faire un peu de ménage à la casa et par le fait même prendre quelques photos de mon intérieur pour faire suite au billet « Vintage living » publié il y a quelques mois.  Vous remarquerez que j’aime le design minimaliste et contemporain, puisque que j’accumule tellement de stock dans notre entrepôt et atelier, je souhaite que mon intérieur soit le plus « slick » possible!  Presque tous les meubles sont vintage ou d’occasions, trouvés dans des magasins usagés ou chez Showroom Mtl et Homatuvu.  Sur ce passez une belle semaine et n’oubliez pas de commenter le blog pour courir la chance de gagner un look vintage!
