Just about eight months after purchasing her dream midcentury-modern house, Rebecca Plumb made another huge investment—in herself—and jumped feet first into a new career as an interior designer. In between creating colorful, collected interiors, curating memorable exteriors (see Freeport Bakery’s outside upgrade) and hosting Creative Mornings Sacramento (a monthly breakfast series for the creative community), Plumb has also been working tirelessly on her home. Room by room, finish by finish, she and her husband, Terry, have been breathing new life into the #plumbmidmod for more than two years. Most recently, they took on a “One Room Challenge” and remodeled their kitchen in just six weeks. The exterior also got a fresh new color palette, which Plumb chose with the help of her Instagram followers (@studioplumb). Of course, there are still a lot of projects on the Plumbs’ to-do list, but thanks to Plumb’s professional design chops, longtime affinity for midcentury décor and sharp eye for thrifted treasures, you’d never know it.
