A blog dedicated to the The Mid Century Modern era, approximately 1945-1975. Posts will feature real estate (residential and commercial) designs, fashion and furnishings from that era. Couture Academy projects will be highlighted at least once a month if not more. Enjoy!
Alison King, the founder of Modern Phoenix, talks about how Modern Phoenix Week came to life in Arizona. As she tells it, it started when she and her husband were looking for a Mid Century Modern home to buy. They started an online community which morphed into a Facebook group. Their online group led to Modern Phoenix Week. Now others nationally and internationally want to recognize the Mid Century Modern architecture in their cities with their own Modernism Week.
Listen to King share some tips on how to get started. Get some ideas on how to promote the great Mid Century Modern architectural heritage in your area.
Share in the comments how you've started a Modernism Day or Week in your town.

About a month ago, I had the great pleasure to meet Denver area Realtor and Midcentury Modern expert Adrian Kinney. He was just so passionate about modernism, I just loved his enthusiasm on the topic. In addition to selling Denver area MCM homes, he's organizing a Mid Century Modern week, modeled after the one in Palm Springs.
Speaking of Palm Springs, the Denver area is home to one of the largest collections of Cliff May homes outside of the tony California resort town. Kinney lives in one of them. He's the go-to expert on May in Denver. Tune in to hear this podcast today.
I'll be adding to some podcast extras as I go along, extras only available to MidCentury Modern 24/7 members. You'll get exclusive access to photos, typed letters, blueprints and more that you won't see else where. You'll simply log into the exclusive, members-only Resources on my website.
