Do-it-yourself décor inspired by iconic patterns, classic fabrics, sentimental items, and the Americana style.
Modern Americana is organized around 70 elements of modern Americana, from Collections and Camps Cots to Greenery, Hair-on-Hide, Plywood, Polka Dots, and Taxidermy. Images of interior designer Max Humphrey’s laid-back but ordered contemporary style ideas show how each element can be incorporated into modern home design. Accompanied by tips for do-it-yourself styling, each page offers creative ways to employ iconic patterns, classic fabrics, sentimental items, and American symbols in your home.
Humphrey is the go-to source for a lived-in, layered look that represents a fresh take on classic American style for all ages and demographics. For Humphrey, it’s all about thinking creatively, reinterpreting classic elements (such as bandanas and flea market finds), layering with texture and color, showcasing objects with meaning, and celebrating the thrill of the hunt.
