Local Inspiration from Photographer, Margaret Wright
LOCAL INSPIRATION : MARGARET WRIGHT
Celadon’s Flea & Farmers Market is filled with artisans and makers from all over the Charleston area looking to make a start, or continuing to chase their dreams. We take pride in helping to advocate for our local small businesses, as we too, are a small, local business. This blog series is spotlighting artists and makers who have made a name for themselves among The Holy City and who help to influence and encourage our vendors and customers alike. We are excited to continue with local interior and lifestyle photographer, Margaret Wright.
BEHIND THE INSPIRATION
Tell us about yourself.
I’m a Charleston-based interior photographer.
Where do you find your inspiration in Charleston for your work?
An easier question would be where don’t I find inspiration! Part of what I’ve always loved about this city is its incredible beauty. I can’t step outside without finding something that feeds me creatively. Historic homes are my true love, and our city has some of the best.
How would you describe your decorating style?
I’ve always called myself a maximalist! I like to mix funky, modern pieces and bold patterns with one of a kind antiques and thrifted finds.
What are some of your favorite recent pieces from Celadon?
My new paper mache vase, handcrafted with recycled cement bags paper and hand painted, always makes me smile, and I have several of the handmade African baskets throughout my house. I love the texture they bring to a space and the story behind them!
What is your favorite part of the Celadon Flea & Farmers Market?
As a Charleston native, I have a lot of family history in the Navy Base and Park Circle area, so I love anything that brings life back into the Old Navy Yard! And of course I love hunting for unique pieces and great deals at the flea and seeing so many of my friends who have incredible booths there.
