I had so much fun spending time with Janet at her home in Silver Spring’s Hammond Wood neighborhood, most of whose 58 homes were designed by mid-century architect Charles Goodman. She told me how she gutted most of the house—without changing its footprint or altering its signature window walls and cathedral ceilings—to make way for her own 21st century brand of modernism.
So, because the magazine only had room for the one picture above, here’s the rest of it, along with before pictures so you can see how dramatic the transformation is.
The colors extend back to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
I’ve been following Kube’s work for a long time, and have always admired how they use strategic pops of color to give personality to their strong, modernist designs—an aesthetic that we’re used to seeing mostly in black and white.
What I really loved about seeing Janet’s house is that is isn’t new construction; she’s taking her mod style, as the headline says, back to its midcentury roots, paying homage to Goodman’s design but dressing it up with Kube’s signature flair. I hope you will read more about it in the September issue of Dwell!
