From The City of Fountains to the City of Lights…

An Industrial Designer & Architect’s Mid-Century Modern Home in Kansas

A creative young couple, a DIY renovation, a house filled with amazing thrift store gems, collectible furnishings, and a slew of handmade artwork makes me wish I had a house of my own… 

Welcome to the home of designer Brian Everett & his architect wife Lori!

For a fantastic interview about their space, renovations, and artwork see their home feature on Design Sponge!

PS- if things look familiar it might be because you’ve seen Brian’s designs for sale at CB22Modern, and Design Public!

See more of my At Home With series which usually takes place in much smaller spaces in NYC!
