Kristen is the chippy paint, rustic and slightly crazy side to Modern Vintage. Kristen graduated from Simmons College with an Art & Communications degree she didn't know what to do with. A few stints at local galleries proved far too boring and clean for Kristen, and she was soon found waiting tables at the local diner. There, she befriended everyone in town, including a fellow antique and paint lover, who may be as crazy and impulsive as she. Soon Kristen could be found rescuing roadside dressers and painting them morning, noon and night in her kitchen. Although Kristen changes her mind with the wind, when it comes to design, she tends to lean towards simple and fresh design elements, and loves to incorporate architectural salvage into any project. She loves to get her hands dirty and almost every article of clothing she owns has paint on it. When she isn't painting furniture or learning to use a new power tool, she loves to spend time with her family and drag them to local flea markets and yard sales. 



Such a great shop!

I fell in love with everything!

“I fell in love with everything and am so excited with what I bought today, chair, mirrors, table, signs and a lovely lace scarf.  Such a beautiful place and prices are very reasonable.!

Thank you, thank you!

“Kristen, thank you for turning my scribbles into a reality! Your ideas far exceeded what I was thinking and our dining room is complete.”
