Early on, Mangas saw an opportunity to engage with the wider modern architecture community by featuring other professionals prominently in his listing marketing. He features the architects who designed his listings and makes sure to always display photo credits for photographers, whose work elegantly captures the beauty of modern architecture. “I try to support the whole team that helped put such a unique product on the market. And that helps support me in the long run.” Mangas also helps connect consumers with this professional community. Every year, he puts together a modern home tour, generally featuring contemporary homes that are not on the market. He invites the architect and others involved in the homes story to the events, which helps draw significant crowds. Though these tours cost $40 to $60 to attend, Mangas says hell get 300 to 500 visitors in a day.
Sometimes, a wildly unexpected hue can be the easiest way to update a room, which was the approach architect Anik Pearson took with a vintage New York apartment that had its footprint and bones intact. “We restored it to its glory but with a modern twist by painting the dining rooms walls and beams a bold teal, filling in the space between beams in white, and running some chinoiserie-inspired wallpaper all around,” she says. Bob Zuber, partner, principal, and head of architectural design at Morgante Wilson Architects in Chicago, finds that tinted Venetian plaster warms up ceilings. For the best coverage and less splatter, Rick Wilson, director of product information at Sherwin-Williams, stresses the importance of using quality ceiling paint. His colleague Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, suggests going with flat or matte finishes to hide imperfections and produce a polished, clean look for any color choice. Otherwise, painting the ceiling is no different from painting walls.
