Portland Treasures: Cozy Mid Century Lodge

I love snuggling up with a blanket and a good book on a cold winter day in front of the fire. There's nothing like it. So, in lieu of the recent gloomy Portland weather, I thought this an appropriate post.

I was browsing through Apartment Therapy today and stumbled upon a Portland gem. Designed by architect Roscoe Hemenway, this 6000 sqft ranch home won House of the Year in 1954. The owner has undertaken some significant remodels and created a beautiful mid century lodge full of character and taxidermied eccentricity. She has achieved a particularly nice blend between indoor/outdoor spaces by utilizing walls of windows and outdoor seating areas.

It's brooding. It's dark and cozy. A perfect retreat for those cold, rainy Portland days we all know so well. Take a look. Images: Andres Leoncavallo.
