Pad Peek: Layered Portland Retreat
We first spotted the layered, plant-filled home of Liz Kamarul on Instagram, and we immediately knew we needed to share it! Liz, a home stager, and her husband, Tim share their Portland, OR home with their dogs, Cudi and Bo. Liz describes their home as a “moody, plant loving, bohemian retreat” where she feels free to “listen to my gut instincts and experiment”.
Liz says that their couch, which she scored for free from one of her home staging consultations, is my one of her most prized treasures. “It changed my life for the better”. We definitely know it’s the envy of many of her Instagram fans, if the comments each time she posts a photo of it are any indication. Of course we love how she mixes the patternful upholstery of the couch with a range of textiles in other patterns (which, if you follow her on Instagram, you’ll see change fairly often).
“Tim (who is a graphic designer and graffiti artist) and I enjoy creating art, love to travel, and eat out all the time because neither one of us enjoy cooking, although it is a goal to become better”. We love their art wall in the living room, and the plants, macrame, and even lighting which all add lots of visual interest. We’re even more obsessed with their system to train the vines of this plant to climb up the wall.
This statement wall, which Liz painted by hand (!!), proves that you can make a big impact with pattern- even on one wall. The botanical theme of the mural provides the perfect backdrop for her peacock chair too!
Adopt An Idea: take a cue from Liz to add a little fun to any table! Simply attach upholstery trim like fringe or pom poms to the edge of the tabletop with small finishing tacks- instant boho flare!
Thanks for the peek into your pad, Liz and Tim! If you love their beautiful, layered home as much as we do, be sure to follow Liz on Instagram.
