Style Maven – Sarah

Who is your style icon?  My style icons are Kate Middleton and Rachel Zoe.  I love Kate’s classic and elegant look and I love Rachel’s boho style.

 Describe your style in 5 words!   Unique, classic, free-spirited, bohemian and fun
 Why do you want to be a stylist for MAVEN?  I believe in unique one of a kind pieces and Maven not only offers this but all of the pieces are handmade and from passionate artisans around the world.
 
 What is your favorite MAVEN product?  My favorite Maven For Her product is the fold over clutch.  I love the variety of colors that it comes in.  My favorite For the Home products are the luxurious Moroccan wedding blankets.  These blankets are absolutely stunning!
 
 Do you have a country that influences your design/style the most?  I would have to say Paris!  I love the pride they put into their clothing and home designs and the flea markets are amazing!

Styling with Baskets!

I recently went to Santa Fe for the International Folk Art Market. Ironically, I have only attended art markets outside of the States. This was my first one to attend that was less than a 4 hours plane ride to get to! I had a wonderful time and got to see work from over 40 other countries. I came home with a ton of new artisan contacts and even better… a few killer artisan finds!

I was not on the look out for baskets but when I saw them, I knew they where a must have!  These were handmade in India but have a Navajo influence which I am loooving! As promised, I wanted to provide you with a few ways to style these lovelies in your home!

 

I love how West Elm staged this on a brick wall, pulling out the grey tones.
