Anna Kullgren and Optic Verve’s Blog!

The Creative Flux is my voice behind . Optic Verve is a small design and general contracting firm in North Portland, Oregon. This blog used to be on the website, but since it is more fun to be interactive, I moved it out here. Topics will likely vary quite a bit, as my interests reach far beyond what my company does. Other than my obvious design posts, there will probably be quite a bit about gardening and plants (my number one obsession), cool new building materials, and – because I tend to get creative in the kitchen – maybe even a decent recipe here and there. In addition, I often marvel at the reckless abandon of my fellow humans. You are equally likely to find the occasional rant regarding dwindling natural resources, and periodic updates on the pet projects I’ve taken on in my side-kick “career” as a budding community activist. So, welcome to my blog. Let the comments fly!


About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!
