Luster of the Pearl at the Encore
Here is a glimpse of what you will see at the Luster of the Pearl at this year’s Northwest Natural Street of Dreams.
I have many wonderful artisans and great partners to thank for the amazing work at our penthouse at the Encore. First my design associates Pamela Sandall and Julie Hranicka, our long days and evenings paid off with a great space and good memories. Next, Jon from Artistic Innovations. I have never met a more humble, talented or contentious decorative painter in all of Portland. Your work speaks for itself and your artistic touches in the space make me very proud. I could not have worked with someone more devoted to the project.
My friends at Parker Furniture, Bella Furnishings and The Design Side by Madison who let us borrow key pieces from their showrooms that perfectly captured our vision. You were each a pleasure to work with and I will forever be grateful for your generosity and faith in our work.
Our beautiful handmade Barbara Barry rugs from Tufenkian perfectly tied in our great room. Portland Closets installed lovely cabinetry for our closets and utility room. The artwork from Caplan Art Design was truly stunning and provided much needed inspiration for the space. Amy thank you for coordinating commissioned pieces we needed in the penthouse. I don’t know how you put up with us! Susan from Moonlight Blinds who worked tirelessly with delayed fabric to provide beautiful framing for such a lovely view of Portland. Tom from Dig, thank you for creating such a show-stopping outdoor space. Your outdoor design work gets complements everyday I visit the penthouse. Kai from Master Furniture Makers, your work is exceptional and we appreciate all you did for us. Bruce from Barnwood Naturals, we lovingly used your reclaimed Douglas Fir barnwood and appreciate your eagerness to participate. Thank you Pangaea for letting us raid your accessory stash at the last minute. You are an angel. Laura from Lisacs Fireplace, your kind easy-going attitude was just what we needed and we love our outdoor torches. My dear friends at Sherwin Williams in the Pearl, thank you for your help with with custom paint, wallpaper and even midnight labor when we needed it. You guys rock.
Thank you to our contractors including Callaghan’s Custom Installation, DeKort Electric and Rick from Wallpaper Pro who worked through challenges like the pros they are. I truly appreciate your dedication to the project.
