today is all about illustrator matte stephens. you can catch a peek into his new work and studio over on our guest blog (with sarah fox), but we wanted to share a bit more of his awesome retro-inspired home right here. isn’t where he lives so indicative of his style of illustration? you can find more, full-sized images of his home right here, and don’t forget to check out the other installments of his sneak peeks in the past here and here. the home is truly always a work in progress. [thanks, matte!] -anne

[Above: We moved to Portland several months ago. We first moved into a Victorian house that wasn't set up very good for us. So we set out to find a Mid Century Modern place. We found this condo in SW Portland and just fell in love with the place and the area. The condos were built in 1956 and have flat roofs with little back yards. They are one story and are shaped in a u with a courtyard in the middle. The people who live here take really great care of the garden /courtyard.It is a wonderful place we feel very lucky to be here.]
