SALVAGE ONE SHOOT || styling with maven

A few weeks back, we did a photo shoot at a local event space, Salvage One. It is an old industrial loft (3 levels!) with vintage furniture scattered throughout.  Oh my goodness, we were in heaven!  Had to share a few of our favorite shots of our products staged within.

Featuring our Moroccan Kilim rug. Looks beautiful with a mid-century leather couch.

The details in the rug are simply stunning.
_MG_9408
Wedding blankets can make the most beautiful rugs.
_MG_9417
With simple furniture pieces like these, you can really spruce up a space with a colorful rug. It helps add warmth and texture to the space.
_MG_9437
Kilim pillows… They are just perfection where ever you place them!
_MG_9438
Try layering a chair (or couch) with a pom-pom blanket. These XL pom-poms help add a new dimension to a simple formed piece of furniture.
_MG_9448
Loving everything that is happening in the picture. The vintage sign is incredible and so is the chair! Our kilim pillow just adds a nice color pop.
_MG_9457
Truly, rag rugs can be used in any space. Obsessed with this look.
_MG_9468
Boucherouite rag rugs layered on a bar. Gotta have some fun while staging.
_MG_9496
If you are looking for a more luxury/classic rug for a space, try working with a Beni Ourain! They are full of texture but are neutral enough to fit into any space.
_MG_9512
Floor pillows are the most fun to decorate with! You can add them just about anywhere and they add additional seating for gatherings and parties. (Or they are a perfect ‘grow up’ pillow that children love to lay on, while keeping your space classy)
_MG_9517
This glass window was insane! Just loooove this shot.

This bar was was beyond incredible, I had to stage our most luxurious rugs next to it. Aren’t they beautiful?!
_MG_9583
You can’t go wrong with pom-pom blankets!!! They look phenomenal where ever you place them.

Style like Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer & Julia Mincarelli

I was recently pinning away on Pinterest and came across this image.  It was taken by the talented Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer and styled by her sister, Julia Mincarelli. This dynamic duo styled and shot a Danish monochrome apart this past January. It is simply gorgeous. What I want to point out is the bed spread! It’s just like our ‘QUEENIE’ BERBER WOOL BLANKET! They use it as the top layer of this bed dressing. It’s such a wonderful textured addition to the room! So if you are looking to duplicate this style, click HERE!

Styling with Rag Rugs!

When I first selected my first batch of rag rugs, I had mediocre expectations. They looked really cool from the pictures but man oh man they are just SO incredible up close and personal!  One of my favorite aspects is that they are created by recycled clothing, basically whatever the artist could get their hand on. The patterns range from diamond, symmetrical, to free form abstracts. These one of a kind pieces are a gem that everyone should have in their household!

One of my dear friends and I always joke about how you need a little ‘color pop’ in your life; from what you wear down, color you paint your nails, to how you style your living room. These beauties definitely add a ‘color pop’ to a room or space!
