Wedding Blanket Headboards

I love the idea of using Moroccan Wedding Blankets as bedroom decor.  I already have a throw that I use at the end of my bed, so I have been looking for inspiration on how to use one as a headboard.  I put together a collection of my favorite looks!

 The use of this blanket is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. By covering a closet, it looks like the bed is made for that corner. The wedding blanket can easily be lifted up to access the closet. This is a perfect solution for a small space where you need to get crafty with design and practicality.

Anyone with a four post bed can achieve this look! By simply adding a horizontal bar, you can add any textile to spruce up your bed!

Perfect set-up for an apartment! When you can't paint your walls and are limited to what you are allowed to hang up, wedding blankets help add texture an dimension to rooms!

Inside Rupert Landendinger’s Danish Apartment

As soon as I saw this Danish apartment, I knew I had to share it. We’re talking white walls, wooden floors, touch of black, high ceilings, global finds, gallery walls, and overall vintage charm. Rupert Landendinger, perfumier and marketing director, pieced his Copenhagen apartment together by adding finds from his travels and vintage art. There is so much inspiration here and we love how he incorporated Moroccan textiles into his space!

Beni Ourains // Moroccan Area Rugs

Beni Ourains have been all the rage lately.  It might be that I can spot them from a mile away now that I sell them, however, they have become a staple when designing an interior space. Beni Ourains are hand-loomed in the High Atlas Mountains featuring harlequin pattern. They are woven with 100% organic wool with black contrasting designs. Some have a more intricate design while others are made predominately neutral with very little accents.  That’s what makes them the perfect area rug for almost any design!

Here are five different rooms each featuring a beautiful Beni as the area rug!

I’m beyond obsessed with the textured black walls in this bedroom and herringbone wood flooring. The room is classically elegant and the Beni Ourain they choose adds just the right amount of ‘global’ without changing the pristine of the design.

This living room has more of a worldly vibe and they have kept it clean and minimalist. That is why the criss cross of this Beni works so well by adding another layer of texture to this neutral design.

I think we can all agree that this space is beyond gorgeous and made of pure elegance! The Beni they choose has thick horizontal lines that help elongate the space. LOVE IT!

I know we have all seen this beautiful Kardasian bathroom, but I just had to include it. It’s such a luxurious and classic design and I love how the designer added two global touches: the brass light fixture and Beni Ourain area rug.

Well done Jonathan Adler, this table and chair set is perfection! I am responding sooo well to gold layered on top of this black and cream rug!

DREAM BEDROOM

I came across this bedroom a few months back on Pinterest and made it my screen saver the same day!  When it comes to designing a bedroom, I am all about keeping it as minimalist as possible.  Cluttered spaces stress me out and you need a tranquil room to retreat to at the end of the day.  This design is executed perfectly!

Loft Living with Maven

IMG_2858

A friend of mine just moved into an industrial loft and I have been dying to get in there and stage some Maven pieces.  I  love the industrial look; exposed beams, brick walls, high ceilings = YUM! Last week I took a few hours off in the afternoon to play around with some of our products in their space. Pics below!

I love that this space allows for the rug to be on a diagonal.  It opens up the room and lets you showcase the beautiful Beni!

Whenever you have a large sectional, you can add a throw or wedding blanket over the back. It helps add some texture and dimension to the space.

Trying out a different Beni in the room, love this pattern with the neutral couch.

I looooove adding global decor to a modern/industrial space.  It warms it up, adds some color, and still keep it looking chic.

MOROCCAN PATIOS

Maven’s HQ is located in Chicago, which means it is freezing 5-6 months out of the year.  Why we still choose to live her is quite questionable. We are planning on heading to Morocco in March for a large buying trip(!!!).  It’s always so refreshing to be ‘in the field’ and meet new faces and jump-start those creative juices!  I always feel so refreshed, inspired and focused after traveling. I was skimming though Pinterest and came across some beautiful Moroccan Patio scenes. These will definitely keep going as I trek through the snow and negative degrees for the next two months.

Kilim Blankets (pictured above) are fairly inexpensive and are perfect for creating your own seating space. jooSdQLKsGHl

While I would not suggest wedding blankets as seat covers (the sequins might not be that comfy) this is a perfect example of neutrals done right.  It’s so tranquil, I could spend hours here. Those arched doorways help too:)DjIAR7ogP7Hl

Who wouldn’t want to have a lovely afternoon lunch here! _cEvtrCGTtnl

Well If you’re getting me into a bath suite mid winter, it better be for this pool!

If I lived in a dry climate I would be re-creating this on my patio. Place of dreams!!!

Happy Winter! Stay warm and inspired!

Vintage Moroccan Textiles turned into Floor Pillows

I had never seen (or really noticed)  floor pillows until I started Maven.  Once my in-country partner sent me that first  collection I FELL IN LOVE! Our rug guys take vintage rugs and cut them up to make these lovely floor cushions.  We are digging their latest collection, shop HERE!

Sometimes it’s hard to pick a bold pattern for a couch or chair in your living room and that’s where these beauties come into play!  They can add so much texture and color to a room.  I like to think of them as the chic version of a bean bag chair. Throw pillows, floor pillows, and poufs are such a great way to transform a room and keep transforming it year after year by simply swapping them out as our moods or seasons change:) Check out these beauties below!
