Thank you to everyone who participated in our latest #ModernismProject photo challenge – #abode. It was a pleasure to have Angela Elias with CasaSugar look through all of your submissions, so thank you for being our special guest judge! Angela chose gonkedglookedslurped‘s photo, also known in real life as Valery Lovely and Antonio Aguirre, of an interior vignette. The photo was taken in their own home of their beloved owl sculpture by Ernesto Gonzalez-Jerez, along with other eclectic accessories from their travels.

Angela chose their photo because, as she put it, “I love that this vignette has a nostalgic, midcentury vibe while still looking remarkably fresh. Mixing a lot of pieces from a specific period can sometimes make a room feel more like a movie set. Instead, they relate the pieces to each other through color, shape, and a whimsical theme.” And we agree! So spot on.

Follow Valery and Antonio @gonkedglookedslurped on Instagram to see more of their collections. Antonio’s a professional archivist and Valery is a graphic designer/art director. They also have a booth where they deal in mid-century modern furniture and housewares, so check them out!

We’re going to take a bit of a break during the holidays – BUT – we’ll have a very exciting opportunity to share with you on Monday, December 12th. Let’s call it a giveaway where you’ll all be able to come away with something. We promise. Consider it a huge thank you to all those who have participated in the last few challenges and happy holidays! More Palm Springs Modernism Week ticket giveaways will resume in 2013.

We took off last week so that we could all enjoy our Thanksgiving holiday – we hope that it was a good one! To kick things off again, we’re giving you another chance to win tickets to Palm Springs Modernism Week. This week’s prize is a pair of tickets to the 13th Annual Modernism Week Show Preview Reception on February 15, 2013 (a value of $150). For those of you who are new around here, the #ModernismProject is our first-ever mobile initiative encouraging the global community of modernism fans to express visually what modernism means to them. This week’s theme is…..#ABODE.

Go forth and capture images of interiors that inspire modernism. Characterized by simplicity, democratic design and natural shapes, interiors of that time were accented with Finish glassware and ceramics, and Danish furniture and lighting. Entire residential interiors or modernist accessories on their own are all great examples for submissions to this challenge. We just want to see what modernist abodes mean to you in today’s design world.

Our special guest judge for this challenge is Angela Elias of CasaSugar – an interiors, architecture, and home decor focused site. CasaSugar is a branded site under POPSUGAR, a leading lifestyle brand for women. POPSUGAR delivers up to the minute news and information on the latest in entertainment, fashion, beauty, fitness, shopping and more. Follow CasaSugar on Instagram for a sneak into Angela’s DIY projects, flea market field trips, and the  interiors she covets and shares with her readers. For Angela, “modernism is about reinterpreting classic concepts in a way that celebrates simplicity. It’s efficient. Restrained, but stimulating.”

Twice a month (between now and February), we’ll be issuing a new “challenge” or prompt. Participants are encouraged to submit as many photos as they’d like. An amazing panel of special guest judges will review all the submissions and pick a lucky winner in each category.
