Expert home décor and styling with a modern aesthetic
At Modern Mill, we believe in the beauty of spaces. From salvaged and restored woodwork to rehabbed brick to impeccable interior design, there’s something magical that comes together in a well-styled house. It makes a house into a home. A space into personal space.
Our goal is to be the design hub for everything you need to modernize your living spaces. From purchasing quality home goods to home remodeling and interior design to sustainable energy solutions. We’re here to help you build unique living spaces into every aspect of your home.
Why choose Modern Mill for your home design needs?
We are a group of passionate design visionaries who respect the historical value of homes while adding modern style.

But more than that we truly love what we do: helping people find and create spaces they love, spaces they can call home, spaces they can live in.
Need more information? Here are four reasons to use Modern Mill for your design project.
1) Intuitive & modern interior design experts
One of Modern Mill’s key differentiators is our unique background. The company was founded by Mark and Carmen Brough. It draws on their passion for and knowledge of combining open, modern room concepts with classical homes—all with flawless style. Mark and Carmen rooted the company in their mission to create balanced living spaces that are unique and sustainable.
Modern Mill works with a variety of styles, and mid-century modern and transitional styles are our specialties. We especially love a good mix-and-match, layering contemporary aesthetic with vintage comfort and practicality. Our aesthetic blends inspiration from chic neighborhoods in California and Chicago, where Mark and Carmen spent a lot of time absorbing design elements. We combined this big-city, modern backdrop with a dash of personality cues from the home owner. This provides a truly custom look and feel.
Whatever your style, we partner with you to help you feel at home again. We are able to innovate a space and ensure it can be both visually beautiful and entirely functional to fit your current lifestyle and needs.

2) From home restoration to refresh
While we appreciate that interior design and personal style are always evolving, we are also quite fond of preserving precious historical features that give homes character. Whether you’re renewing or restoring—or somewhere in between—we have experience across the home design spectrum to respect every element of your design project.
From a kitchen overhaul to an entryway refresh, Modern Mill balances the breathable nature of open spaces with sustaining any treasured historical features of the home. Combined, Mark and Carmen have purchased, refreshed, and then sold more than 100 homes. Many of these homes had original features that needed some TLC, from light sprucing up to major restoration efforts. Mark and Carmen believe in investing the time and care to properly preserve a home’s unique character.
