RUSTIC, MID-CENTURY INSPIRED, UTILITARIAN CERAMICS
“Born and raised in the southeast, I moved to Ithaca, NY in 2010 where I apprenticed with studio potter Renata Wadsworth. She taught me everything I know, from throwing pots to building and firing a wood kiln. Since my time in NY I have spent time in various studios developing and perfecting this latest body of work. I am excited to share it with you. I hope that it might bring you the same joy that I’ve had while making it.” –Sara Veak

Not long ago it was said with declarative force that wallpaper was a thing of the past. Was outdated. A faux pa. A designers worst nightmare; more associated with mauve flashbacks to the 70’s than high art. Oh but the times have changed as we fawn over gorgeous wallpapered flats in NYC, in the trendiest L.A studios and, yes, even accenting the walls of Coveted Home!
We’ve rounded up a few favorite producers of all American made wall coverings. These artists are trailblazing a rich path to prove once and for all that wallpaper is back, and better than ever. Continue reading On Trend: Art Inspired Wallpaper | Coveted Home Blog
It was an eleven-day expedition across Morocco. In the high mountains, we discovered the silken, milky-white Beni Ouarain. In the south, the poppy-red flat weaves said to be hurling towards extinction. The central mountains introduced us to the colorful Azilal while the Sahara showed off her more understated carpets, like those of the nomadic Tuareg people. Over those two weeks, with our brows furrowed, we studied, haggled and made lifelong friends in the various market towns…

Mornings that begin with delivery truck greetings are guaranteed to be wonderful days. Like on Christmas, we frantically tear through boxes to reveal highly anticipated new inventory. Instead of Hallmark cards, we read shipping invoices. No bows; just bubble wrap. It’s not fancy, but man, a day that starts out with box cutters and cardboard is a damn good day. Saturday was no exception.
Meet Mariele Ivy, owner and designer behind Young in the Mountains. Born and raised in Montana; now living in Colorado. Mariele is an uber-talented designer as her handmade wares range from ceramics to handbags to jewelry. Made from recycled sterling silver + reclaimed hardwoods, her jewelry is edgy, fierce, simplistic. Each ceramic piece is hand built with a contrast between stark white porcelain and black graphic patterns that tend to look like modern artifacts. We can’t decide what we love most. And we don’t want to. We’ll take it all!
Although she works in varying mediums, Mariele has been making jewelry since she was 5 years old. “Jewelry communicates status and style. Without speaking you can be striking, powerful or intimidating. You are sharing something about your self when you choose to add something to your body.” – Mariele Ivy
