Portland Vintage Eclectic 

 

My visit to Portland began with a beautiful Friday morning drive and a strong coffee.  Upon arrival, my client and I visited each room, including a remodel underway on the second floor.  We agreed to a "refresh" of the existing living spaces on the first floor but first a bit of shopping for some small but needed additions.  After a quick trip to HomeGoods and Pottery Barn, we left with silver candlesticks, bone-colored candles, a beautiful grey throw and a couple of pillows.  We travelled back to the house with a memorable side trip to the Eventide Oyster House!  Here are the resulting photographs after a day well spent.

This home...the way life should be.

     "Every time I walk into my living room I feel a warm and cozy sensation come over me!  Betsy has a natural talent for turning your space into an inviting and relaxing place to be.  She truly understands how to find the perfect balance between her own aesthetic and your own personal style and personality.  She is a joy to be with and made the whole experience really fun and inspiring. She can turn a little forgotten corner of your house into a small unexpected and special new spot. Her services range from completely taking over a space for people who just don't understand interior design and aren't interested in doing it themselves to the person, like myself, who loves to decorate and has a good understanding but just needs that intuitive guide to share her talents and help me to express myself in a tasteful and productive way. It was a great learning experience. She also drove up to Portland for a reasonable travel rate which I appreciated since there isn't anyone in my area who offers a similar service. I highly recommend Vignette/Betsy to anyone! You will love spending time with her!"
