Rejuvenation salvage buyer Trisha Anderson reports on Serving Up Style, an annual Portland design event.
Each year, prominent design teams are invited to create fantastic, stunning, and whimsical dining environments for a four-day showcase during the Portland Fall Home & Garden Show. Serving Up Style culminates with a fundraiser gala, auction, and awards ceremony. The rules are simple: each design group gets a 12′ x 16′ space with a concrete floor and away you go!

and a pair of Blenko glass lamps adorn the buffet
This was Rejuvenation’s third year participating in the event, and the second year my design firm, Abode Design, partnered with Rejuvenation to create a space. The inspiration for this year’s design came the instant I saw Rejuvenation’s new Blenko glass lamps (available in early November). The colors, the shades, and their sheer scale got my creative juices flowing.
The room, entitled “Boho Artistry,” was created around the idea of curated space – how one expresses their personal history through the interior design of their home. The back story came together quickly: Our space would represent a 1960s artist loft, the home of a traveler and eclectic collector.
A paint-covered salvage table, vintage “origami” chairs, layered rugs from Kush Handmade Rugs, a striking salvage Moroccan chandelier, and pendants dressed in Rejuvenation’s Moravian Star Shades all came together in a room that told the artist’s story. Best of all, Pacific Northwest artist Jennifer Ament installed her amazing handmade prints on the wall. They provided the final authentic brush stroke!
We were so glad to be able to help Molly’s Fund by participating in this event. Houzz readers were pretty excited, too: Boho Artistry been added to nearly 900 ideabooks!
