hi and welcome
I'm Holly. I started Maison Everett over 5 years ago just after the birth of my first son. I was working full time as a photographer + calligrapher and needed an outlet to house all the things that inspire and grow me both as a creative and a mother. Since then, we've moved nearly a half dozen times (including a year in Jordan and Israel), adopted a our second son, and I now call Nashville home. While this space has morphed dramatically over the years, I still continue to share creative ideas on my blog and sell art prints inspired by motherhood and everyday moments at home. The heart behind everything I create remains the same...
I believe in celebrating a creative life beginning in the home.
I (sometimes reluctantly;) embrace the chaos of little ones learning to create or help cook in the kitchen.
I find inspiration in the slow pace of nature and connections with others.
I think new ideas are born in the doing - the process is as important as the product.
I love the smell of freshly cut flowers in my home, the sound of jazz while making a meal, and the thoughtfulness of a handwritten note.
I seek beauty, always. Even in the brokenness and imperfections.
My hope is that we'll all embrace the mess a little more, enjoy ordinary moments with our kiddos, and find joy in the everyday.
What does "MAISON" mean?
A business (especially a fashion) house or firm.
Mid 16th century (in an earlier sense). From Middle French, French maison from classical Latin mansiōn-, mansiō.
