While surfing the web recently I stumbled upon an online boutique, The Maryn, which I am currently loving. Maryn means of the sea, so it was no surprise that I was attracted to the site for its coastal vibe and timeless aesthetic.This thoughtfully curated line of home and lifestyle products is owned by Michelle Adams, co-founder of Lonny Magazine and former editor of Domino. She has a great sense of style and a knack for mixing and matching pieces for that well curated and unpredictable look. You’ll recognize some of her products from well-known brands and you’ll find unique pieces crafted by artisans. To take a peek and Michelle’s Michigan home click here. I die, you’ll drool.
Narrowing down to five of my favorite pieces from Maryn wasn’t easy –maybe I’ll have to do another feature next week 🙂 but here you go. Think I’ll be placing an order sometime soon.
1. Maryn 20 x 20 Pillow Covers: $33. Did I mention I’m mad about stripes? I have the perfect spot for this pair. Each pillow is 100% cotton and hand crafted by West African trades people who have been trained in the art of weaving, dying and sewing.
2. The Maryn Stationery: $55. The set includes ten envelopes and ten flat cards. A collaboration with Dempsey and Carroll, purveyor of fine social stationery.
3. Hubb Ladder: $80. I don’t know what it is about this ladder but it speaks to me in so many ways. Its simplicity makes it a super versatile piece. Picture it propped against a bathroom wall draped with plush white bath towels. Or used as a hanging rack for clothes or to display accessories. The possibilities are endless and the price point is attainable.
4. Hand Made Paddles. $200. I find myself attracted to anything with this iconic four-color striped design. One thing’s for sure, they’re too pretty to use for paddling. Think I’ll just hang them on a wall.
5. Black and Red Plaid Dog Collar: $48. Maybe I’m drawn to this dog collar because I’m in puppy mode with my new addition, Penelope. Or maybe it’s the buffalo check print. Either way, it super cute.
