5 Elements of a Productive & Healthy Work Space

5 Elements of a Productive & Healthy Work Space

Katy  |  09.07.17  |  Furniture, Modern Life
Let’s face it. We work hard and we work a lot. The United States is not known for lengthy summer vacations or holiday breaks. For those of us who are desk-bound, it is time to be smart. Sitting in front of a computer for eight hours a day or more takes a toll on our […]
Nut Bombs: A Mid-Morning Snack from Nordic Light

Nut Bombs: A Mid-Morning Snack from Nordic Light

Alice  |  06.19.17  |  Modern Life
Nordic Light: Lighter, everyday eating from a Scandinavian kitchen, is a book to linger over. It’s two inspiring books in one: a photo essay and cookbook. The author, Simon Bajada, is an Australian native now based in Stockholm, and he brings fresh eyes to the subject.  His recipes feature ingredients favored by Scandinavian cooks.  Happily, many of those ingredients are readily available […]
Welcome Traditions

Welcome Traditions

Tobin  |  10.27.15  |  Modern Life
We understand how the pineapple earned its swagger as the symbol of hospitality and welcome in colonial North America. New England sea captains who sailed among the Caribbean Islands dodging malaria, wicked storms, and the horrific hygiene of their randy crew were fortunate to return with their health and good judgment. But the luckiest of the […]
Home Is Where The Pie Is

Home Is Where The Pie Is

Marley  |  10.05.15  |  Modern Life
Once fall hits, there’s pretty much only one thing I want to do: bake pies. The first pie I learned to make was an apple pie. My grandmother baked pies, and she taught my mother, who later taught me. Baking was a regular activity in my house growing up, and now that I’m grown up, it’s […]

Cool Weather Favorites

Katy  |  09.14.15  |  Accessories, Furniture, Modern Life
It’s that first cool day of September that brings back all of my favorite Fall memories. I step outside first thing in the morning to discover the air temperature is about ten degrees cooler than expected. The humidity has dissipated. And I feel compelled to take a deep breath of that fresh, cool air. I […]
Swedish Holiday Traditions

Swedish Holiday Traditions

Katie  |  12.16.11  |  Modern Life
The Century House turns into a different place in December. The rest of the year, we are especially apt to getting lost in Marimekko patterns and staring too-longingly at BluDot and Gus sofas, but when holiday music hits the radio and the twinkle lights begin to go up around Madison, we make a little extra […]
The Gingerbread Century House

The Gingerbread Century House

Katie  |  11.27.11  |  Gift Giving, Modern Life
Fall seems to be lingering in Madison, but that hasn’t stopped the staff at The Century House from preparing for winter. Since our Holiday Open House, which we hold annually in November, we have been excitedly anticipating the holiday season. One item that has caught our attention this year is the Swedish Gingerbread House Cookie […]
House Thinking in November

House Thinking in November

Jill  |  11.14.11  |  Modern Life
It’s November here in Wisconsin, about the time that our thoughts turn indoors. It happens to everyone. Heck, it even happens to mice: this past week I’ve heard people talk about mice moving inside their houses, their schools. When you find yourself curling up under the throw that’s hung neglected since May, take a look […]
