Date Yourself with these Unorthodox Home-Decor Products!
One word comes to mind when we think of, Avant-Garde Home and that is “Luxury.” If you’ve done your research like us, you know that there aren’t many home-decor brands out there, let alone, LUXURY ones. We rummaged through the Avant-Garde website and fell in love with the Faux Leather and Fur pillows! Houston-based and a dream! Pair the pillows with the oil-burning options and candles, and you have a self-care date night with your own damn self! Avant-Garde even has a wick trimmer, so your candle lasts as long as possible. We’re excited about this brand and Myeshia Brown’s stance on sprinkling our home with eye-catching and scented goodies. Meet the Queen of Luxury Fragrance & Home Decor!
What inspired you to start your business and why?: The vision of Avant-garde Home came from a simple prayer; "God, what is it that YOU want ME to do?". I never knew that He would direct me to use my gift of creativeness and art to start a luxury home fragrance and home decor company. So in 2014 after the vision was given to me, I started researching the market and found that there weren't many candle lines that used wood wicks and the wood wick choice was pretty much non-existent with luxury lines. So I began my testing and finally on January 15, 2016, my line officially launched. Being obedient to this calling is one of the best things that I've done.
What does your company stand for?: Avant-garde, is defined as “people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox with respect to art, culture, or society.” This is exactly what my company stands for as it relates to creating unique spaces in the home or office. I want everyone that purchases a product from my company to embrace their uniqueness no matter how "unorthodox" it may be. It's a gift!
How do you create the life you want?: There are a few things that I do, say, and think to create the life that I want. I create the life that I want to live by keeping God first in my life. That is number one! I know that I would not be where I am today without the strength and focus that He has placed within me and grace that He has given. Secondly, I have to believe in myself and the vision that God has shown me no matter what. In a world that thrives off likes and followers, I have to remain confident in the brand I'm building and understand that this journey is uniquely mine. Stay focused on my plate, stay positive, speak positive, and pour that into others. Third, do the WORK!!!
Where do you find inspiration?: I find inspiration in everything and everyone! I do not limit myself on ways that I can be inspired. I'm inspired by the people in my life and those that are doing positive things...those going after their dreams. I'm inspired by travel, cultures,a and anything artistic. I'm even inspired by smells (lol)! That's a must since I'm a candle maker. Overall, inspiration is endless!
How has your business made you a better person?: Before starting my business I always believed in helping others but now, I feel that I was given this vision to inspire others around me even more, especially those younger than me, those in need, and other entrepreneurs. I make it a point to carve out more time to pour into others and provide as much encouragement as I can. When you pour into others, you can't help but to grow and to become a better person.
What makes you HUMAN?: Everything! Lol. Nothing that I have or will accomplish will ever change the fact that I am HUMAN. I am not above anyone else and I'm definitely not below. I experience every emotion there is and success, no matter how big or small, would never change what happens within.
