What defines northwest modern art and design?




Is it the rich natural environment that inspires, is it the eclectic sense of design that mixes without pretension or is it the creative class of individuals that flow into this region bringing fresh ideas and energy to the Pacific Northwest?

This 1950‘s ranch-style home which has been appropriately renovated into a contemporary dwelling; this project demonstrates the idea that art and design can be accessible and coexist in a daily living situation. The home entails a complete spectrum of the finest collections - fine art, product design and home d├ęcor. This home renovation aims to bring together a vision of modern art and design that reflects the unique spirit of place in the Pacific Northwest.

A symbiotic talent; the first - an art for finding amazing vintage to modern dwellings. The latter-having the full credentials of a fine arts & design background with a rich work history. This marriage of worlds channels the ingenious potential of a way to display both art & design in a modern living setting for the Pacific Northwest.
