MAIYA on Houzz!

Have a soft spot for modern design?  Does furniture get you a little hot and bothered?  Do abstract paintings make you weak in the knees?  This is your home.

Welcome to My adventure is your advantage!, a blog dedicated to all things modern.  Saddle up and follow Capree as she explores the Internet's great bounty, bringing you little nuggets of design gold along the way.  With a focus on the bright and optimistic side of modernism, this is one daily adventure you don't want to miss!


MAIYA was started in 2007, born out of a passion for modern design and an addiction to the Internet.  Capree has a deep love of Victorian-era “fancy lads”, 19th Century anatomy drawings, and tin robots. She grew up in a dusty suburb of Phoenix, AZ, but spent a great deal of her youth reading through her father’s art and design books, as well as accompanying her mother on trips to furniture stores and model home tours.  Shortly after graduating with a BFA in Photography, she discovered her true passion as a design blogger.  Capree currently resides in Utah with her wonderful husband and their miniature schnauzer, Wrigley.  She still likes going through model homes, if for nothing else, their plastic fruit and cookie-scented candles.

You can also find Capree spreading the mod love on GrassrootsModern, 2Modern Design TalkCurbly, and Wantist.
