Cool, Calm, and Eclectic: A Visit with ModEmployee Mary

You wouldn’t know that there’s a shivery, silver-grey sky outside this time of year, as you step into Mary’s bright, inviting apartment. Warm, and framed in dark wooden trim, the “quiet place with character” that she shares with her fiancée is the second subject in our series of stylish employee interiors.

While Mary, the Community Specialist Marketing Manager at ModCloth, admits that she’s got a soft spot for pottery, textiles, and inspirational word art, her relaxed abode also plays host to keepsakes from college, rehabbed retro electronics, and collections of vintage ephemera and childhood artifacts.

As for the assortment wine corks — “Nothing,” says Mary, “goes better with a homemade dinner or Skype with a friend far away like a good glass of red.”



  “The bunting was hung up above our fireplace for a surprise celebration on the night we got engaged. I said ‘YES,’ of course!
After that, it found a new home perched on the wall in our bedroom.”


  “When I work at home, I’m right here in the dining room. I don’t have a desk, and this room has the best light!”



How do you keep your space welcoming through the winter?

About Chris

Every day, Chris gets one to three scoops closer to his dream of an ice cream-only diet. If he's not indulging his sweet tooth, Chris is using his child-like energy levels to play rubber snake pranks, converse with countless puns, and capture the world in photos as he walks. If you aspire to have a perfect Pittsburgh accent or have a passion for periodicals, he would love to talk over afternoon coffee.

    I love that retro furniture pieces are getting a second chance to be center stage in the limelight. The nightstand like my mother’s caught my eye!
