Blogger Spotlight: Mirjam Flatau (aka Mija)

At heart, Mirjam (Mija) Flatau is a (wildly successful) fashion blogger and art director, but recently she’s been trying her hand at interior design in a new Los Angeles home. At the age of 26, she has already lived in Munich, London, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, so her international flair translates beautifully into unique, striking interiors. We also can’t ignore the fact that many of the signature pieces in her new home are straight out of the Modernica showroom!

Get a peek at her blossoming interior design talent below, and find her fascinating blog over here.

Modernica in the Press

The Hundreds

With the Modernica daybed: what is that, for you, to put these images on something that’s a commercial product? There’s an irony to these violent images on a daybed.


That’s why I like it. And the same thing goes for putting images on walls in the street. I don’t think of myself as a “street artist” or somebody that does work in that vein, but I love the idea of doing large paintings that confront people. So furniture is about beauty and form, and my stuff, a lot of the time, I’d be happy if people hated it. That was a goal of mine at first was to make something that was not easy. I don’t want to make shit that’s easy or beautiful or next to your parents’ flowers. So doing a juxtaposition with furniture is cool, because it’s unexpected.” – Cleon Peterson

“Happily, [Steven and Tata Citron] also inherited some furniture from the previous owners, including a Case Study sofa, coffee table, and chaise from Modernica that still enjoy their place of honor in front of the fireplace.”

Inspire Me Monday: A Whimsical Surrealist Garden Hidden in the Jungles of Mexico

Once upon a time in 1962, a British aristocrat, poet, and lover of all things surreal decided to build a secret garden near the obscure mountain town of Xilitla, Mexico. $5million later he had constructed a sculptural, architectural, and of course, surrealist garden wonderland stretching across 80 acres of Mexican jungle.

At the time, Salvador Dali himself called James “crazier than all the Surrealists together,” but the resulting garden remains breathtaking. Today, the grounds are open to the public and are maintained by Fondo Xilitla.
