Stealable Idea #1: Wainscoting
Whether a dining space or bathroom, wainscoting adds a new dimensionality and texture to a space.
Stealable Idea #2: Wallpaper
Wallpaper can be an alternative to paint, or an addition. We love this bold design complemented by dark wainscoting and gold accessories.
Stealable Idea #3: Shelving
We love these high shelves throughout the bistro, great for storing treasures that shouldn’t be touched!
Known for their turkey dinners, this 1879 establishment is Portland’s oldest restaurant!
Stealable Idea #1: Stained Glass
The arched stained glass is not only breathtaking, but unique and we love it!
Stealable Idea #2: Gothic Arches
These dark framed Gothic arch mirrors are romantic and classy.
The above Gothic arch window was custom made by Versatile Wood Products. There are a few good options in Portland for salvaged stained glass: The ReBuilding Center, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, Old Portland Hardware & Architectural and Chuck Franklin Glass Studio.
Stealable Idea #3: Dark Wood Paneled Walls
These dark wood paneled walls are dramatic and a perfect way to balance the tall ceilings.
