AphroChic: State of Independence

modern_soulful_style_tee_large“Modern. Soulful. Style” is the tag line for AphroChic, the blog and online shop of designer Jeanine Hays, and we couldn’t agree more.

Hays began blogging about design a few years ago, and decided to take the plunge and launch her own company this year. And we’re very glad she did - both her clean-cut, vibrant pillows and her fun graphic tees are an absolute breath of fresh air.Haze_Mimosa_Interior_large

While we think her pillows would look great in any room – from a stark college dorm to a dark and atmospheric study – Hays has one room she’d love to design over any other:

“I would love to design a room for the First Lady. There’d be some amazing statement pieces like a classic tufted sofa outfitted in AphroChic’s Haze Mimosa pillows, a graphic Madeline Weinrib rug, and a Murano chandelier to add some ambience. The space would be grounded with personal pieces from her travels – textiles from Kenya, a wood carving from South Africa, a painting picked up in Italy. And some Moroccan poufs would provide the perfect seating for her daughters. It would be a perfect reflection of her modern and classic style – the kind of room that would seamlessly blend world cultures and high-end design to create a warm and comfortable space for the family to relax in.”

While Obama’s living room may just be a fantasy for now, we think that all of Hays’ pieces “seamlessly blend world cultures and high-end design.” If you want the look for yourself, check out the online shop.
