In 2017 and 2018 I (Michelle) styled for the mid-century modern focused magazine Atomic Ranch. The Greater Seattle area has a treasure trove of mid-century homes and quite a following of this style. The homes I styled are like are dedicated to retro furniture and accessories. One own home was chosen to be featured in Atomic Ranch because of its kitchen remodel but they carried the mid-century style brilliantly throughout the house. I was smitten with their accessories, particularly all of the deer figures, as they reminded me of my grandmother. On the piano I added sheet music my mom used to play as a girl.
Photography by Seattle photographer Matthew Gallant was stunning.
Michelle pushed and shifted, added and removed furniture and accessories to get just the right shots. The collaborative results were transformative.
