sneak peek: lark press

by anne

after traveling to portland, oregon in february for a friend’s wedding i’ve become quite fond of the city and love checking out all the portland sneak peeks that keep popping up. while so many of the homes we feature showcase independent artists, there is something about portland that seems to focus on local artists and shops even more. the trend continues today with the home of letterpress printmaker, jean sammis of lark press. CLICK HERE for the full post (including additional images), and don’t miss her etsy shop (i love the “summer is coming” coasters). thanks, jean! –anne


Girl and sassafras leaves [red silkscreen] by two sarahs on etsy.


I discovered this calendar by the Wild Unknown on Design Sponge, of course. The letterpressed gun is by Nik Bresnick, my Lark Press cohort and artist of Bittersugar.

Oh Charley Harper! I thought this Michigan Audobon Society poster would fit in well as my husband is a Yooper.

Oh, little treasures can be hard to find! I found this tiny sea urchin on a secluded beach on Lanai, Hawaii. And I found this sweet dish at the lovely shop, Una, in Portland.


We built this small house/mother-in-law quarters last summer. . . Sarah Landwehr, obviously one of my favorite artists and storyteller extraordinaire, silkscreened these two characters and turned them into planter decor. In the late afternoon when the sun shines through the effect is magical! My ficus tree seems to like them too.

My favorite space in the house is the kitchen.  The light in the breakfast nook is the best! I purchased this owl from the lovely folks at Noun: A Person’s Place for Things in Portland.
