Aletha VanderMaas
True Home Restorations is a midcentury design firm focusing all efforts on homes built between 1950 and 1975. While Aletha tends to personally prefer the modern aspect of midcentury design, she has a soft spot for the modest details of the era as well.

Since she was a young girl, Aletha has been fascinated with the midcentury lifestyle. From the clothing and music, to the homes and cars, the details of midcentury living captivate her.

She has owned her 1975 VW Beetle for two decades, listens to oldies on the radio, and prefers a full skirt & sweater set to jeans & a tee shirt any day. Hosting a cocktail party on her patio is Aletha's idea of a perfect summer evening.

Clearly, she was born forty years too late.

After a decade as a successful event designer in West Michigan, Aletha has taken a step toward her favorite focus - home restoration with appropriately curated interiors. Revitalizing homes from the outside in by creating a cohesive living environment that will be enjoyed for years to come is what she is most passionate about.

Aletha lives in Grand Haven, Michigan, with her husband, Greg, and their three children.
