I am quite taken with John and Jen Vitale's house which featured on Freunde von Freunden recently. John is a skateboard designer and Jen, a stylist. Their home is a Navajo-hued stucco building in Portland, Oregon with lots of light and architectural charm. Filled with plants, records, books, natural objects and a fine collection of handmade kitchen items (check out the pots in the kitchen cupboard), it seems their home exudes an appreciation for the simple things in life. I would love a natural, stripped-back home like this but, I am so drawn to colour & pattern that it's kind of impossible.
