Laura's Portland kitchen is a lovely reminder to cherish things that are worn down, and to embrace the imperfect. Despite the fact that a lot of things in her 1930's apartment are old and in need of replacement, the glass cabinets that line the entire wall in the kitchen are original, and as charming as ever. They're also the best way to display Laura's collection of vintage dishes, bowls, glasses, and other curios.
In this 2011 Apartment Therapy House Tour, Laura says that she's inspired by "undiscovered treasures, objects with history, [and] meaningful design." We also appreciate her words of wisdom:
Obtain what you love. It's more important to commit to objects that are meaningful and important rather than just stylish. Choose things you love and they will fit together somehow. Also, embrace the imperfect.
