Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Name: Emily Kurzweil and Grady Jurrens, and Eva (6), Sam (3), Edie (3) and Juni the Boston Terrier Location: Laurelhurst Neighborhood — Portland, Oregon Size: 3,200 square feet Years lived in: Owned 5.5 years Emily and Grady moved from Chicago to Portland when their eldest child was just an infant. They wanted to be close to family, and bought their home in Portland's historic Laurelhurst neighborhood with children in mind. A few years later, when their twins were born, their house realized its full potential as a colorful, functional family-friendly home. From the tree-lined street, the 1923 home looks traditional, but when you walk in the front door and see hot pink walls and modern furniture in the dining room, you know that this family is fun. Through the use of color, pattern and fabrics, the couple has created a home that is memorable, comfortable, and totally kid-friendly.
