Monthly Recap: Portland Interior Designers Tell All

August is a month I always look forward to, because the weather is to die for in Portland, BBQ's happen more times than not, it's wedding season and it's just an awesome month. As I look back and reflect on the month of August, I realize it passed quickly, but GHID was able to accomplish so much as a team with these 31 days! The month was full of fun out at the Happy Valley Street of Dreams, including receiving our beautiful photography from Blackstone Edge, meeting wonderful potential clients, Garrison put his floral arranging hat on to help add some love a beauty to Alison's wedding, and last but not least, we attended the Home Builders Association awards night. Read on for some more details and inside looks at all of the happenings from GHID's month together!

Oops Blackstone Edge did it again! This year it was a big challenge for GHID to design two Street of Dreams homes, but it's an even bigger challenge for photographers to come in and shoot two homes in 1.5 days. We knew Blackstone would be able to do it and they did an amazing job (go figure)! See above for some never-before-seen photos.

 Alison Drops The Van Delden And Adds The Fedderson

Our Senior Interior Designer, Alison Van Delden became Mrs. Fedderson on August 16. The wedding was flawless. Their love is what every little girl dreams of finding in life. Their vows were incredibly heartfelt and touched me so deeply that I cried the entire time. Garrison, being the best boss one can be, put his floral arranging hat on and did ALL of their arrangements. I am so excited to see these two continue on their journey together!

Award's Night For The Street Of Dreams

Last week, we attended the Street of Dreams Award's night. We were wined and dined and it was fun and tasty! GHID was laughed at a little for all having the same tastebuds and drinking extra dirty martinis, but that is how we roll - what can we say? We were beyond thrilled to be a partnered up with Westlake Development for The American Spirit Street of Dreams home, which racked in a ton of awards! We say it every time, but we also mean it every time...we couldn't do it without everyone's donations, help, creativity, dedication and time, so thank you all for the honor of saying that GHID was a part of a home that won the following awards:
