Monogram Modern Home in Boston September 11 and 12

We’re traveling on a cross-country modern design road trip with Dwell in a prefabricated house, custom-built and outfitted with Monogram appliances. Our first destination in April was Portland, Oregon; in May we visited Dwell on Design in Los Angeles, California; in June we visited the Phoenix, Arizona metro area; we traveled to Austin, Texas, in July; last month we visited Dallas, Texas; and this weekend we will be in Boston, Massachusetts!

boston-header We will be popping up at The Innovation and Design Building September 11th – 12th during the American Field Exhibition and Market.

On Friday September 11th, the home will host a series of Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Check out the details and sign up here!

On Saturday, September 12th, the doors will be open to the public. Plus! When you stop by, you will have the chance to enter to win a Monogram appliance. A full schedule of events is listed here.

See you there!

Designer profile: Sarah Robinson

The Monogram Experience Center (MEC) brings designers to Louisville, Kentucky, for three-day experiences to learn about Monogram, the design process, our appliances – and even cook with them! We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences.

Today’s profile highlights Sarah Robinson with Jansen Inc. in Pensacola, Florida.

SRFD: How did you become interested in design?

Sarah: I became interested in design many years ago. I used to watch This Old House with my dad when I was a kid and was just fascinated by the older homes.

SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.

Sarah: I worked on a huge remodel that touched about 80% of the home. It was fun to rework the layout, take down walls, and create a new kitchen and master suite

SRFD: A trend you’re over?

Sarah: The thin linear glass tiles and the small square glass tiles for a backsplash in a kitchen.

SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?

Sarah: The rustic chic design style – it’s fun and comfortable

SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?

Sarah: Lots! I loved learning about the Advantium Speed Oven – what an amazing product! Also, I loved the French door oven and seeing the French Door Fridge being manufactured
