Coastal Living with Interior Designer & Homeowner Mollie Spriggs
For our 15th Anniversary Collection, we brought the Cabana Lifestyle to you. Constantly inspired by the coastal design of homes at our headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, we reached out to some amazing local designers for beautiful photoshoot locations. Our fellow girl bosses helped us find the perfect partners & beautiful homes for, dare we say, the most fun photoshoot yet! The images we captured from this shoot showcased classic Cabana prints from the vault in stunning spaces.
Mollie Spriggs graciously welcomed us to her fabulous home that she designed herself! She began her interior design career modernizing kitchens in 2000 and now designs dream homes for her clients. With an artistic eye, Mollie loves creating inviting spaces & picture perfect interiors.
