I’m very excited that an article I wrote for American Bungalow magazine made the cover of the Winter 2013 Issue #80! The article is about an amazing home on the Oregon Coast that sits on a secluded cove with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the rugged Oregon coastline and a 1920s-era bridge that was part of the original Oregon Coast Highway. American Bungalow has posted the full article on their website, and you can read it here.
My in-laws are friends with the owners of the home and I had always been curious about what it looked like inside. After starting this website, I was even more curious to see the inside and perhaps write about it. The owners are lovely people and they graciously welcomed me into their home. We sat and talked for a good couple of hours, and they encouraged me to take as many photos as I wanted while they walked me through every room. This home is special. Not just because of its location, but because its design is outstanding as well. Many of the home’s details were inspired by homes designed by Greene & Greene in Southern California, as well as Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman Farms in New Jersey.
I quickly realized that an article about this home needed a bigger stage than my website could provide, so armed with photos of the home, I approached the editors of American Bungalow with the idea of writing an article about the home for the magazine. I was thrilled when I was informed that not only did they want me to write the article, but they would be sending their Principal Photographer, Alexander Vertikoff, to Oregon to photograph it!!
I’m really pleased with how the article turned out and getting to see Alex work was a real treat as well. The home and site are jaw-droppingly beautiful, and Alex’s photos really bring that to life on the page. The Winter 2013 Issue #80 is on newstands now, and if you’re a subscriber, it should be arriving in your mailbox any day now.
