When Calle and Nicole bought their two-bedroom bungalow at the base of Portland’s Mt. Tabor, they loved the original charm of the 1923 home, but knew they would need to be intentional to make the space work for their family of four. Creating a home that Nicole describes as «texture-rich, kid-friendly and inviting… all with a light, bright Scandinavian feel,» was a top priority for the couple. Another wish for their home: They wanted to be able to host Calle’s relatives, who live in Sweden and South Africa, on their extended visits to the States.
