Weird Homes Tour – Portland
Artist Christine Claringbold and her husband Charles aren’t afraid of color. Christine, a working artist for over 20 years, likes to use paint as a “living entity.” She specializes in painting colorful mandalas, psychedelic murals and objects such as guitars and suitcases. Her main focus centers on transforming recycled vinyl records into clocks, bowls, mirrors, jewelry and more! You can find all of her work in her online store – Eye Pop Art.
You can see the Claringbold’s love of color in their House of Sarcasm. Its kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and patterns will wow you. Every room has its own uniquely rich color scheme. Its overpowering, explosive mandalas radiate from the center of its ceilings and echo throughout the house. Finally, Christine’s vinyl record artwork and vintage psychedelic housewares collection compliment and complete the design. Be sure to also check out the music studio of Christine and Charles’ band, Dartgun & the Vignettes while you’re there!
And you can stay in the House of Sarcasm by booking through Airbnb.
