We love Househappy’s home state of Oregon and we love Design*Sponge, so when we saw that they did a roundup of the state’s best homes, you can bet we were excited. Many of the homes that made the list are in Portland, too, so we’re definitely a little envious of these digs.

Summer isn’t over yet, right? (Right!?)

The ease into fall will be a bit easier with these colorful geometric-patterned umbrellas from David Saunders (aka David David). Not only are the umbrellas design-forward enough to brighten up a rainy afternoon, the maple wood shaft doubles as a walking stick when the umbrella is closed.

Time to start perfecting our rain dance.

We love rearranging our furniture, but sometimes—thanks to tiny urban apartments—it’s easier said than done. This super flexible space created by Russian design studio Ruetemple makes it so much easier to keep a room looking fresh.

“It was necessary to design a study space, guest sleeping accommodation and a space for various types of recreation, so that one could sit with a book, watch a movie, or welcome a crowd of friends, have a dance party and then accommodate everybody for a night, all in one room,” said the architects.

Who knew moving furniture could be so fun!
