There are so many things at Woonwinkel that I have my eye on — it’s getting ridiculous. Here is a collection of my current faves below and now that I’ve put it together, I realize that there is a distinct blush pink, white and brass thing going on. They carry so many timeless, lovely, versatile designs — it’s hard to narrow down my shopping list. I have one of the large strappy leather baskets and it’s beautiful — I use it for magazines, but I think it would be sweet for linens or firewood too. I’d love to bring a few more dreamy things home to decorate our new house. So good! If you’re in Portland — make sure to check out Erica and Kristin’s wonderful downtown PDX shop!

Hello! I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA on the I HEART PDX posts with all my moving madness. This edition is pretty epic though, so maybe that will make up for it a little bit. When the leaves turn and pumpkins replace peaches — it’s officially the season of non-stop amazing events around town. HAVE FUN OUT THERE! I’m still consumed with getting our new home repaired, but maybe I’ll see you at a few of these — SO GOOD. xo Jen

Hans “specializes in functional sculpture that retains its sense of self by leaving exposed the bare, raw material on the surface of her vessels.

There are so many great things in the new Schoolhouse Electric collection! I’ve spent the past few days at our new house working with repair people and spending those mind-numbing, overlapping 4-hour work windows wandering around the empty new space — decorating with my mind. Of course, snoozy things like a new sewer lines, electrical repairs, functional faucets and a zillion moving expenses take precedence, but a girl can dream. We need A LOT of lighting, shelving, appliances and hardware — so it will be a little at a time.
Some of my faves from the new Schoolhouse collection are the Luna Natural Brass pendant, the Plaza Chandelier, the Factory Modern No. 4 Sconces, the Library Ladder, the Brass Rails for pans and kitchen tools, Brass Planters, SECO Marble Board, the Modern Scout blankets and I’m totally obsessed with the all the Cabinet Knobs (brass hex!!). They’re also working with some AMAZING artists and designers this season, like Jen Ament, Fail, Wayne Pate, Studiopatró, Leah Duncan, Rennes, Jill Dehan and many others. More HERE.

Since opening their doors in 2011, charming and homey boutique Red Sail has been a wonderful addition to Portland’s Northeast Alberta Street. Owner Stacy Maiano stocks an excellent selection of housewares, gifts, accessories and paper goods, including a host of items produced by local makers. I love walking into Red Sail and seeing the rainbow of glossy ceramics, illustrated tea towels, candy-hued Baggu bags and art prints on display. I stopped by recently to find out which items Stacy suggests for the upcoming season transition and here’s what she recommended…
The modern geometric vessels from Portland-based makers Caravan Pacific are available in white and a cheery robin’s egg blue that’s exclusive to Red Sail. Use it as a vase for flowers, a planter once the weather turns cold, a pen catchall or use it to store kitchen utensils. Any use will add a happy pop to your space!
I also love the handcrafted, and appropriately named, Alberta Table Lamp from Caravan Pacific. The design is modern and sophisticated and I think the ceramic base and wood accents compliment each other beautifully. I can’t help but imagine it’s warm glow as the days grow shorter and the dreary winter months set in. Red Sail has the Alberta table lamp in black with red oak, white with walnut and turquoise with cherry wood. I’m eyeing the white version for myself.
At the top of my own wish list are the cotton herringbone throws made in Maine by Brahms Mount. They’re so soft and pretty, I want to use them for picnics now and for cuddling into once the cold nights arrive. Late season campers and beach walkers would do well to throw one over their shoulders for some truly indulgent comfort. Now I just need to decide which one to get — there’s so many colors.
The laser engraved leather triangle clutch from local makers Sons & Daughters are another of Stacy’s current favorites. Red Sail has both the cognac and dark brown versions in stock. I love this design which is a perfect hybrid of modern and bohemian styles and would make an excellent back to school gift.
