DESIGNING<br />

A KITCHEN<br />

FOR YOUR LIFE<br />

Rebecca Green<br />

Broker<br />

ABOVE A well-designed kitchen<br />

can make meals a breeze.<br />

LOCATION: 1832 SW Elm Street,<br />

Portland<br />

Whether you’re a gourmet chef, a budding host or anything in between, a<br />

functional, beautiful kitchen makes the creation of any cocktail, dessert or<br />

meal that much better. The kitchen really is the heart of many homes, and good<br />

design is inspirational. Kitchens are where many of us entertain our friends<br />

and nurture our families.<br />

Oregon is a place where we value our land’s bounty and prepare it in the<br />

comfort of our own homes. We are seeing more and more rooftop growing,<br />

community gardens and elaborate organic beds in backyards. Farmers markets<br />

are thriving throughout Portland and the surrounding communities. With a<br />

well-designed kitchen—clean lines, proper placement of tools, and lighting<br />

that illuminates the local fare we’re cooking—the enjoyment factor of cooking<br />

is an elevated affair.<br />

Kitchens are also decision-making rooms when it comes to purchasing.<br />

Thoughtful layouts, unique infusions of style and high-tech appliances are<br />

consistently on trend. No matter what the case, we can help you think through<br />

these critical lifestyle decisions.<br />

A SUSTAINABLE<br />

OUTDOOR SPACE<br />

ABOVE Try landscaping with<br />

catmint or other droughtresistant<br />

plants to conserve water.<br />

WATER-EFFICIENT PLANTS<br />

Cut down on water use—this saves you money and saves a resource we often<br />

take for granted. The Oregon State University extension service suggests<br />

grabbing catmint, pineapple sage and other drought-resistant plants. Then<br />

capture the water you do use by putting down a thick layer of mulch, or use<br />

drip irrigation for pots to make sure it all goes where you want. Next-level<br />

sustainability—get rid of your lawn entirely and try xeriscaping, which<br />

eliminates the need for irrigation.<br />

THE RIGHT WOOD<br />

If you’re considering a new deck, think long-term for the wood you<br />

use. According to Sustainable Northwest Wood, a for-profit lumberyard<br />

subsidiary of the nonprofit Sustainable Northwest, options can include<br />

wood—like Western Red Cedar—certified by the Forest Stewardship Council,<br />

or Juniper decking, which is known for being exceptionally durable.<br />

SAVE THE BEES<br />

You can make your yard an attractive wayside stop for bees, hummingbirds,<br />

butterflies and other creatures with hardy, handsome plants. Start with<br />

lavender and Russian sage for an unforgettable pop of blue and purple, then<br />

try zinnias to mix up your color palette. For a larger, bee-friendly plant,<br />

Pacific rhododendrons grow exceptionally well in and around Portland.<br />

LAKE OSWEGO LIFESTYLE<br />

Kendall Bergstrom-deLancellotti<br />

Principal Broker<br />

I remember living on the waterfront in Lake Oswego in my<br />

early 20s as I was just starting out in real estate. The best<br />

memory is a feeling—opening the front door of my home and<br />

seeing water lapping over the edge of my dock from passing<br />

boaters; serene mornings of flat water when only early risers<br />

had no wake from other skiers; the sun rising over the lake<br />

with bald eagles making their morning route of discovery,<br />

and late afternoons full of laughter, adventure and fun while<br />

waterskiing and wakeboarding.<br />

Now, after nearly twenty-five years of living and working<br />

in Lake Oswego, I have truly come to love my home. Living<br />

on the lake provides a true vacation lifestyle when work is<br />

done. When considering relocating to Lake Oswego, note that<br />

there are 750 waterfront homes and twenty-one easements<br />

for homeowners living off the lake but with access rights for<br />

boating, swimming and paddleboarding.<br />

The downtown Millennium Plaza is newly refreshed,<br />

doubling the size of retail, restaurant and shopping space.<br />

Enjoy local dining favorites such as Five Spice, Salt & Straw<br />

and the newly opened artisan Pizzeria Sul Lago! Weekend<br />

farmers market, Sunday symphony and Monday movie nights<br />

bring a sense of community togetherness through the<br />

summer along the waterfront. Come home and enjoy!<br />

COMMUNITY BACKYARD<br />

Steve Studley<br />

Broker<br />

The life you live can be defined by the place you live it in, so<br />

live it in a place full of life—southwest Washington.<br />

Here, you will be glad home is more than the house you live<br />

in. It’s the community that surrounds you and the experiences<br />

you have when you step outside. It’s the activities you can<br />

enjoy on a Saturday afternoon. It’s the memories you’ll look<br />

back on and say, “This is where I lived.”<br />

In southwest Washington, those experiences and memories<br />

are full of all the beauty and grandeur of one of the most<br />

desirable corners of the world. Whether dining alongside the<br />

Columbia River, hiking in the Gorge, kayaking on Vancouver<br />

Lake, or visiting one of the region’s many stunning wineries—<br />

the lifestyle you can enjoy when this community is your<br />

backyard is vast, and as peaceful or as adventurous as you<br />

wish it.<br />

Come step out with us—discover the fullness of what a<br />

home can be.<br />
