Hi! We are Leila and Ted.
We visited Portland twelve years ago and never left. The beauty and mystery of the Pacific Northwest motivates us every day. We get to share that with a community of warm, generous, and hard-working (despite what you may have read ;-) ) folks, who come together to make this such a special place in the world.
By day, Leila mixes flour, butter, and a pinch of this and that, with whatever stone fruit or wild berry is in season, to make golden, flaky pies. Ted is most often in his studio space, working on an illustration project, painting a portrait, or experimenting with an unfamiliar medium.
After work we can be found walking through Portland's many neighborhoods, and keeping company with our friends and community.
The house has been photographed by a couple of blogs and a large handful of fashion photography has taken place here as well including a memorable shoot for Apartment Therapy (website hidden).
