Portland mid-century design fans are marking their calenders for the fourth annual Street of Eames home tour on April 18th. A fund raiser for Project Return, providing school stability for children experiencing homeless situations, the Street of Eames has been a huge hit in Portland, raising $117,000 on the 2008 tour and selling out of tickets in less than an hour. Tickets this year go on sale mid February. As a 1950's homeowner, I must admit to my heart beating faster at the thought of walking through some of the most interesting mid-century homes in our city, gathering ideas for my own home, lusting after original architectural features, and enjoying being part of the starry eyed, adoring crowd that is the mid-century fan.
