My first collection

Hello again my loves and welcome back to the Mayajoy blog. If you are new around here, let me take a moment to welcome you and introduce myself. Im Maya and I am the Founder and lead Designer of Mayajoy- A home & lifestyle brand bringing you colourful and uplifting homeware, stationery and gifts to bring you joy and put a big smile on your face.


What I do.

Mayajoy began in 2020 when I made the decision to quit being scared and start living up to my full potential. As a mum to two daughters, I realised that it was my duty to lead by example and teach my children that they can achieve anything, providing they have passion and work hard.

I started by releasing a range of Positive affirmation sweatshirts, to remind us all how unique, valuable and loved we are and they SOLD OUT!!! It was the boost I needed to keep going, so when I was made redundant in September 2021, I decided to take a leap of faith and make Mayajoy my full-time job. Wow, what a ride it's been. I'm finding my feet and using my Degree in Interior Design and Masters in Surface pattern, to bring you a range of home and lifestyle products, inspired by nature and my dual heritage. They are colourful, joyful and serve as a reminder that you too can achieve your goals and live a life of purpose, contentment and joy!


What's next?

This week I wanted to share a little secret with you. I'm taking another leap. I'm in the process of developing my first collection. I have to admit that I have taken my time in doing this, mostly due to financial constraints and getting my designs up to a standard that I am happy with but as time has gone on, I know that being overly cautious won't get us to where we want to be. It is outside of our comfort zones that we see the most growth, so here we go.


Using a colourful yet organic colour palette, I have used high contrasts that will work well in both bold or more neutral schemes if you prefer just a pop of colour. I have been inspired by the changing seasons and tropical landscapes.


Here are just a few sneaky peaks of my latest work that you will see in my pending collection. I am so proud of the work that I am producing and I hope that you will enjoy it too.


I would love to know what you think. Leave me a comment or connect with me via Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mayajoydesign/


See you next time.


Lots of Love

Mayajoy x
