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.
