March 2018 Lifestyle Letter 1

Home Creative Home

Welcome to our Home issue!

The following pages invite you to explore new ideas to truly make your home your sanctuary. In our “Creative Spaces” feature, we give you a look inside one-of-a-kind spaces that provide inspiration to the homeowners who created them. From a unique music studio to a tranquil orchid room, we hope you’ll feel inspired to design your own creative space that allows you to escape the daily routine and feed your soul.

Our Open House in this issue takes you on a journey to a beautifully designed home nestled on the Lower Deschutes River in the hillsides of Maupin. This remarkably small home—a fishing retreat—reflects a family’s deep history of generations spent enjoying the river.

This issue also brings inspiring decorating ideas, the story of an artist’s journey, and in our Culinary Creations, a classic recipe with a new twist sure to please any outdoorsman.

Bend Lifestyle welcomes our new editor, Cheryl Parton, with this issue. Cheryl brings a wealth of experience as an editor, writer, and photographer to our team. We welcome your feedback and invite you to visit us online at and
