This newly built house in Medina has been a labor of love. With layers of textures and neutral colors, we worked to highlight the views and greenery.May 7, 2017
Modernous did some moonlighting this month to help a close friend with her Nursery. While she had a lot of the overall direction set and pieces purchased, we helped to focus and refine the final execution. Even though I wouldn’t call it my design, it is WAY too cute not to share! Behold the room of the luckiest baby alive!April 29, 2017
This week we staged a one-owner mid century on Mercer Island, currently on the market with Paul Hart, CBBain. The owners, who grew up in the house, were reluctant to sell and really wanted to be sure it wasn’t torn down. We worked together to make sure that anyone who saw the house would want to keep and love it as is. It became really personal for us.
The house AND the staging was recognized in Curbed as it hit the market this week.
“Whether through excellent staging or the owner’s great taste, see if the furnishings are included. They may be retro in just the right way in just the right place.”
When professionals aren’t quite sure if it is staging, we’ve done something right!February 16, 2017
Starting Friday, Modernous is at Modernism Week in Palm Springs. We are looking forward to the MANY events over the next 10 days.
And you can look forward to some posts and photos from our events, including some continuing education, a tour of the iconic Frey house and much more.
Two houses that Modernous designed will be on tour. The first house is part of the Green Fairway Estates tour, 5 houses in a little known neighborhood on the Tahquitz Canyon Golf Course seen for the first time at Modernism! This tour happens February 18. Then Atomic Ranch will feature Pieterhaus as part of its remodeling panel and subsequent tour on February 19-20.
We will also be taking advantage of the famous and fabulous Modernism Show and Sale during the opening weekend of Modernism. The temptations there are irresistable…
We hope to find time to have some martinis and great meals with fellow modernists also.

Modernous was brought in to stage this older home in Cedar Park in Seattle. We always take a lot of photos to help jog our memories while designing a project. In this case, we thought it would be fun to show everyone the vast difference we can make with staging by showing the before and afters!

Our “Groovy Palm Springs Rental” was finished months ago, with one exception. We wanted to replace the original fireplace that had been removed in the late 80s. We called every junk yard and salvage shop on the West Coast and had no luck. So we gave up.
Just kidding! We had one fabricated in Mexico with the help of a neighbor who had done it previously. The fireplace was finished and installed over the summer and we could not be happier with how it turned out!!!

In July, the Aqua Lair provided a unique background for the Fall Fashion issue of 425 Magazine. It was super fun to spend the day watching all that goes into a shoot “behind the scenes,” and the results are awesome. Take a look here or online!

The September/October 2016 issue of 425 Magazine is chock full of love for Modernous! Next week I will post the fashion spread that was shot in a Modernous-designed home, but today I’m sharing the article that was published on our unique approach to design.
Enjoy!July 24, 2016
We don’t usually work in Renton, but this awesome mid-century, architect-designed house made us change our mind quickly! Felice (Felix) Campanella designed this as his own home in 1959 with forward-looking style, characterized by flat planes, large glass windows, and open spaces. Mr. Campanella designed numerous buildings in our region, including the Renton Library, which spans the 80′ Cedar River, a 1962 World’s Fair building, and numerous MCM churches and schools.
It definitely needs some interior modernization and love, but the bones are still original and still amazing. We had a LOT of fun with this!

Here are the professional shots (always amazing how much better they are!) of the Wexler that we’ve spiffed up top-to-bottom. The crowning jewel will be the fireplace once we get it back from the fabricator. We have just a few more weeks before that will be installed, but everything else is DONE! We are really proud of the way it turned out.← Older posts
