The artFlat is a two room (entire apt), including large kitchenette & bath, designed in our daylight basement apartment. Nestled within a classic Portland foursquare, you will enjoy the rich gallery atmosphere of
The artFlat, decorated with original prints taken from around the world by your host, Holly. We have carefully appointed the unit to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. The artFlat is located in the epicenter of everything Portland, quietly sitting on a tree-lined avenue.
Our intention with artFlat, Portland is to have you feel like you are entering the photographic eye of Holly Wilmeth, your host and acclaimed "picture taker." Once here, you will be surrounded by exquisite artifacts and beautifully framed art prints that are a culmination of Holly and Sky's world travel and Holly's published work with National Geographic, The New York Times, Time, GEO, and Travel & Leisure, to name just a few publications. Combining art and comfort is our goal, and it doesn't hurt that you couldn't have chosen a better location to experience Portland. We are located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of why people flock here: The Eastside, while only being 2-3 miles from downtown and The Pearl.
There are two rooms and a full bathroom that comprise The artFlat. The bigger of the two rooms is divided between a bedroom and a living room area with comfortable seating for four. The bedroom has a top-of-the-line queen mattress sitting upon a platform bed, framed by a deep red Persian rug, rich Indonesian night stands and designer lamps. The areas are seperated by sliding translucent screens suspended from the ceiling for both privacy and ambience.
The living area is adorned with a cozy love seat, soft decorative pillows and two very comfortable overstuffed chairs. This space is perfect for both conversation, sipping and viewing on the 50" Sharp HDTV Roku wall mounted television. This smart set has both basic cable and local channels as well as HBO and is equipped with Amazon Video, Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Pandora, etc. (bring your log-ins with you).
The second room is perfect for that lively kitchen mingle. A combination Kitchen, dining and comfortable seating nook that includes a full size couch/sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, and utility that make the space feel like home (please note there is a microwave and kettle, no stove or oven). The couch and chaise lounge turns into a queen bed that is comfortable and will provide a good night sleep. If you are a party of four, please let us know if you want the couch to remain a couch or we can prepare the bed for you. (The couch has storage for bedding and opens without effort). The teak dining table/workspace is set for four and has two pull-out leaves with two additional chairs, in the closet, for local guests or new friends.
