Walker House

Aaryn Walker.

I worked on a home story last week for Reno Magazine featuring mid-century modern design. I photographed Aaryn Walker and her husband Aaron Hapgood's six-bedroom home in southwest Reno. Walker owns Red Chair Ecl├ęctic Home Decor on Lakeside drive.

Their home used to be an assisted living facility and outside of an extra handrail in the bathroom, you'd never know it: antique barware, Italian chairs, funky lamps, Asian and African art, retro-inspired rugs, bright colors, the original Jenn-Air range in the kitchen and an 8-track-reel-to-reel-record player-music-room—all of it tied together in a swanky, mid-century style—it's really a fun space.

Aaryn, thank you again for volunteering your house.

The story was repurposed for Friday's newspaper. RGJ.com ran a photo gallery of some of the images. And from the emails and texts I got this weekend, a few people saw them. Look for the Magazine story in May.

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite images that ran last week and some of the outtakes.
