Collaboration with Artist, Zach Hixson

By Laura Cavanaugh, March 27, 2020

When I signed the listing agreement for this beautiful craftsman home in First Addition, I knew the staging was going to need to be on point. At 4,288 sq ft, the house is huge and has many rooms…each needed a purpose. Due to the size, I was unable to use my normal stager, Copeland + Co. I reached out to On Stage and they were kind enough to allow me to meet them at their warehouse and pull furniture for the staging. The staging turned out amazing and perfectly showcased a “lifestyle look” of the home. I needed large scale art for the house and while staging companies can typically fill that need, I didn’t want inexpensive art to cheapen the look of the house. I reached out to a very talented artist that I follow on Instagram and that I have personally bought work from. I wasn’t sure if he’d be open to the idea of hanging some pieces in the house, but I was overwhelmed with gratitude when he said yes. The art is show stopping and was honestly so perfect for the home and created the cohesion it needed.

I can never thank Zach enough…if you are looking for amazing, original art, painted in a studio in McMinnville, you should reach out to him.

Growing up in a small town in the Willamette Valley, Laura quickly learned the beauty of Oregon.  Whether snowboarding at Timberline or playing on the beach in Gearhart, she knew that the diversity and beauty of the landscape would make her a native Oregonian for life. Moving to Portland over 12 years ago, Laura has called each quadrant of Portland home and loves how each neighborhood has its own unique vibe. A love of architecture and interior design made becoming a real estate agent a no brainer. Her goal in working for Living Room is to help her client’s real estate dreams come to fruition, whether that be a first home, an investment property or selling a home full of memories. She looks forward to the opportunity to make each and every client a client for life. In her spare time, you can find Laura chasing after her two adorable kiddos, Sloane and Holden, perusing Interior Design blogs, shopping for vintage treasures or, as an avid runner, hitting one of the amazing trails this city has to offer.
