Vintage Restoration. Modern Aesthetics. Good Design.

Bungalow Modern began with a passion for the design and restoration of a bygone era. The challenge of lead designer, Bret Iwan's own Pasadena bungalow restoration, combined with his visual arts background, gave way to a design studio which salutes the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and unique aesthetic of the past. Bungalow Modern works to highlight and preserve the character and charm of each individual project.  From landscape planning, to interior design and renovation, we strive to utilize our experience and expertise to create a plan that meets every individual client's wish list.

If you have a project you wish Bungalow Modern to consult on, please send us an email using the form on the Contact Us page.

Bungalow Modern is located in Pasadena, California, and welcomes requests from all over.
