Janelle Alcantara founded Galaxy Modern out of a love for both her family, and architecture. Married for over 20 years to her high school sweetheart, Janelle decided long ago that family would always be her top priority. Rather than sacrificing a career for homelife, she built a business around what matters to her the most: HAPPINESS!
To Janelle, happiness starts with being comfortable in your surroundings. “I realized when I was very young that the ambiance of a home, restaurant, school, or hotel, has a large impact on the way that we feel, think and behave.” says Janelle. The spaces where our lives unfold should be both inspirational and soothing. They should promote collaboration with family & friends, as well as rejuvenate the mind and spirit. “When modernism is perfectly executed, it creates a harmony between the man-made world and nature, it tames the chaos in our lives with order and continuity, and it elevates our attitude.” For these reasons many of the world’s most important buildings are specimens of modern architecture.
But why should we have to visit the Guggenheim, or the Winspear Opera House, to feel that sense of inspiration? Our homes should be a conduit for happiness and peace of mind.
Janelle created Galaxy Modern to help make modern architecture accessible. Our homes are the backdrop for our daily routine and for the memories of our lives and the lives our children.
Our homes should be curated, not just purchased.
“When people trust me to curate the backdrop of their lives, I am honored. It drives me, sustains me and fulfills me so that I can be a better wife and mother.” It is from this passion that Galaxy Modern was born.
