The story continues…
…and it’s a tale previously untold until Jeanine Hays brought it to the design world in 2007 with her blog, AphroChic. Jeanine looks at design from a new perspective and she set out to prove that “ethnic heritage and culture can go hand-in-hand with the luxurious and the modern.” Her perspective is all-embracing and authentic, so it’s no surprise that her voice is resonating throughout the design community–bloggers, designers and consumers are craving AphroChic’s modern, soulful style. In 2009, she partnered with her husband Bryan, to introduce Dreamland, a collection of pillows we featured on the cover of Nesting Newbies Magazine, Issue No. 3.
Today, we are WIDE-eyed in wonder (and so is the NY Times!) with AphroChic’s release of their second collection, Brooklyn Renaissance, featuring new throw pillows, wallpaper and tabletop decor in tribute to the borough of Brooklyn, NY. Jeanine was careful to keep the line true to Brooklyn roots, using artist Samantha Hahn for the illustrations, and local Brooklyn models to showcase the AphroChic lifestyle and point of view.
Bring New York’s smooth and soulful borough straight into your home. View the entire collection at AphroChicShop.com.
Well done Jeanine and Bryan…keep the story going.Post a Comment
