Closet Visit: June Bhongjan

June Bhongjan had us over to home she shares with boyfriend Joe Cardillino on a sunny Thursday afternoon for mimosas, cinnamon rolls and dress up. Her well curated home and wardrobe were an absolute dream to shoot! June’s home has turned into a creative space where she experiments with interior design, DIY projects, video editing, and anything else she puts her mind to. June is about as crafty as they come, if she finds something she loves she can figure out how to make it - a coveted skill to say the least. She has been working with the blog and youtube channel, Boat People for the past few years making amazing DIY videos. She is a fantastic videographer with a great eye who got her footing in snowboarding world and is now transitioning into more curated DIY and fashion videos. She also photographs for Apartment Therapy, a girl of many talents! Enjoy June, Joe and their adorable dog McKenzie's beautiful Sellwood home, and peek into her fantastic closet.
