Designer Spotlight:
City Home's own Brian J. Mattes

When Brian Mattes joined City Home's team, we envisioned him in a lead design role from day one. Brian is one of those people with a natural eye for style and a strong creative vision. He started off wearing a lot of hats around City Home, as staff of small businesses often do, working on everything from customer service to visual merchandising. This Spring we were able to move him exclusively to design projects with the launch of our new real estate staging program!

Our real estate staging program is geared towards Portland area realtors. If you're interested in the specifics of the program, you can visit our staging and rentals page here. For those of you who came for the eye candy, let's jump in! We're so excited to share some of our recent projects.

Brian staged this stunner of a modern home that hit the market and went under contract within a week of being listed! The building was designed by the award-winning team at Waechter Architecture. We're excited to reveal the before and after of the space!

GOAT BLOCKS PROJECT

With this project, Brian mixed modern and vintage pieces for an eclectic but cohesive feel. This model apartment staging was for Goat Blocks, a SE Portland living space geared towards creative and energetic tenants. Brian focused on a playful and vibrant aesthetic when designing this space.

AIRBNB STAGING PROJECT

Folks looking to short term rent their property often need help picking out furnishings and home decor that is equal parts functional and stylish. Brian designed this Airbnb, complete with rooftop deck, with statement pieces and comfort in mind to keep guests happy.

Our seven piece outdoor furniture set steals the show in this rooftop oasis, accented by our indoor/outdoor alfresco rug and bird of paradise faux plant

Brian made the focal point of this living room our Westminster Sofa, available in 300+ fabrics. He chose a bright and cheery turquoise.
