• Inspiring Artful Living. By Jillian Chandler.



Modern yet timeless furniture, clean and simple accents, quality in each and every piece. Stepping into Mood has a way of welcoming its customers to an inviting and soothing atmosphere, sure to please the senses. The mother-and-daughter team, owners Debra Secor and Nicole Brook, offer one-of-a-kind vintage Mid-Century Modern home furnishings and classic reproductions designed to inspire artful living.

Their unique style combines Mid-Century Modern, Industrial, and Scandinavian designs with a minimalistic and modern aesthetic. The curated home furnishings, gifts and original artwork are intended to delight the senses and uplift the spirit. Mood brings you all of the things you want to set the tone of your home.

“Our careful editing allows our clientele a cohesive visual experience,” says Brook.

Shoppers can find everything from furniture and accessories, lighting, Dash and Albert rugs, and unique candle lines, to handbags and jewelry, and featured is original art. Retro bar carts and barware are available for entertaining in the cool space you create. The store features a variety of merchandises from local artisans as well.

They showcase the work of Craig Wellbrock, a local artist specializing in white minimal paintings. They feature sofas made by Built Well, a family owned company out of Portland, carry 45th Street Bedding, another family owned business, and Moe’s home collection, both out of Seattle, as well as national brands like Roost and Rifle Paper Co.

Furniture pieces in the store are unique vintage finds, many of which have been restored to their original condition. They seek out pieces that are reflective of the Mid-Century Modern style and visually appealing. Customers can also find some retro-reproductions, along with artisan-crafted contemporary pieces, with a Mid-Century Modern and Industrial Modern flare.

“We attribute Mood’s success to the support and inclusiveness of our community,” says Brook. “Mood has been well received not only by our customers but also by many local businesses. The generous encouragement of our community has touched us to the core.”

Their roots lie deep in the Gig Harbor community, as Secor and Brook’s family have been in Gig Harbor dating back more than a century! Over the years, the family started Minterbrook Oyster Company, the first bus line, and were involved in civic activities including serving as mayor of Gig Harbor. In a similar entrepreneurial spirit, Mood is a family owned and operated business.

But take note; Mood is not just another business in Gig Harbor. The owners have created a space to host community groups as well. Each week, they host “Just for the Record,” a free vinyl listening group open to the public. They also donate Sip and Paint party sales to local school auctions. As an artist and former private school teacher, Brook is right at home in this realm.

It is the combination of what these two bring to the business that has made Mood truly successful; Secor and Brook truly complement each other not only as mother and daughter but also as partners. Brook is the artistic, creative force behind the business. She is involved with everything from refinishing the furniture, showcasing her own paintings in the gallery, and handles painting classes and all social media.

“I’m working with my family in a family owned and operated business, and doing what I love most, teaching and creating art,” says Brook. I’m able to participate in ‘Artful Living’ with our community.”

Secor is the business mind behind Mood. She does all the buying and handles the accounts. Secor also has a gift for communication and customer service, connecting with their clientele on a personal as well as a professional level. She and Brook want each customer who walks through to feel important, appreciated, loved and inspired. They work to provide beautiful and unique home furnishings along with the resources and knowledge to assist customers in their creative home projects.

The shop is open Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 6pm. Explore and be inspired at Mood.
