We Are Dreamers And Makers, Designing Modern Prints & Textures For The Studio And Home.
Drop It MODERN is an interiors company committed to creating modern prints and textures for the home. Founded in 2008, Drop it Modern serves to bridge the gap between traditional home décor and modern printmaking with artfully curated design in the form of wallpapers, drapes, wedding blankets and more. Their unique and edgy collections have been featured in national publications such as Elle Décor, Martha Stewart Living, Domino, Style At Home and HGTV. Based in Tillamook, Oregon, all designs are created in house and manufactured in their local Oregon community.
In this world there are movers, there are shakers and then there are those who run circles around both of them. Bree is such a dynamo. Prior to launching drop it MODERN out of her California garage in 2008, she developed a love and appreciation for creativity and chose to answer the call in the form of print making and design. Since then drop it MODERN has grown into a design house creating innovative textiles and wallpapers for interior designers and home decor. Each creation comes from Bree’s elegant, yet edgy use of color and graphics; they have made their mark in the design world and beyond. Her talent to curate clever palettes and graphics are noticeable and loved by her clients. Her signature move is to deconstruct classic patterns from history and rebuild them with a modern twist.
She continues to be a girl on the go, pairing her fearless personality with an entrepreneurial spirit to create all things cool and modern. She pursues anything and everything having to do with progressive design, from visiting antique shops to studying contemporary architecture, from frequenting trendy eateries to soaking up cultural treasures. This adventurous spirit fuels the imagination at drop it MODERN, pushing herself and her creative team to birth new ideas and designs. At the end of the day Bree puts her agenda on hold and shares the kitchen with her family of five. For all this and more, she realizes the divine blessings of her Lord and Savior.
"I have an affection for clean lines, the color white and mid-century modern furniture.
Champagne is the way to my heart.
Hunter boots or heels, depends on the day.
90's music is everything, Wilson Philips all day long!
I have an imagination I can't even explain.
I am married to a farmer.
I welcome a challenge.
I prefer to work in solitude.
I have a bucket list and dream about it often. It includes owning a Chanel suit and skinny-dipping in the Mediterranean sea.
An alpaca is my spirit animal.
For fun I like to research historical architecture and furniture design.
Whenever I plan a dinner party I pretend Charles & Ray Eames will be attending."
A bit more from Bree:
Hi there, I’m Bree. Most days you can find me walking the beach with my family of five or hiking the beautiful Oregon coastline with friends.
I am mostly known for my love of modern pattern design and creative color combinations. I see beauty in everything around me and am passionate about bringing it to life in the form of prints for wallpaper and fabrics!
I love serving the world by unfolding artful treasures that are inspired by natural beauty. Like the movement of the ocean, the colors of the sky, flora & fauna; architecture, new and old, or just the way shadows hit the pavement- infusing all that inspiration into design is my passion.
I enjoy creating products for people who are looking for something artful and unique. I value pushing the envelope by playing with trends, while simultaneously including historical elements that will stand the test of time. My collection of prints are meant to require a second or third glance in order to really see their potential. My goal is to provide interior designers with the elements they need to take their work to the next level. After some careful and creative thought, you will find that our prints stick with you and are sure to deliver iconic reviews in your next design project!
When I am not busy working on prints for drop it MODERN you will find me rolling up my sleeves and putting on my hunter boots to walk the family farm alongside my husband (with our three children not far behind). The wide open spaces keep me grounded and balanced in life while giving me a fresh perspective on design. Any other free time I get and I will be in line for the next up and coming food truck in PDX or hitting up the hot new restaurant on the scene, dinner anyone?!
