Pictures from Portland, Oregon
A hundred years ago, some of my husband’s relatives immigrated to the United States of America. Some of them came to live in Oregon. This summer of 2019, we met with his third cousin, who lives there as a winemaker.
We felt at home wherever we went, and the knowledge of many Scandinavian people had had an impact on both Oregon and Washington State gave us a feeling of belonging.
In another post on the same journey, I shared pictures on architecture that are so different from our Scandinavian style. In Portland, Oregon, I found some houses similar to Swedish wooden houses.

I mentioned in a post on architecture that I would try to name the kind of styles that I have seen. Even though I bought a book on the subject, I am not able to tell you the exact name.

The modern Scandinavian centre is made in a minimalistic style, typical for Denmark. The small red wooden house is typical Swedish.
