EHappiness with Milagro Collective's Bridget Green
Tell us about yourself. Where are you from and how did you end up founding Milago Collective?
I own Milagro Collective, an online based retailer that offers carefully curated and designed Modern Oushak rugs. Founded by Texan, Bridget Green, Milagro Collective seeks to celebrate tradition and family by creating the perfect heirloom and the most grounding piece in a room… the rug! Our rugs are hand woven with 100% wool by third generation artisans in India whose work is an art form and true labor of love!
My inspiration in life comes from all things Southern - from childhood memories of Low Country summer vacations to the day she met the love of her life in Auburn, Alabama.
A Southern inspired home is more than a big porch and well-worn floors. It's a place molded by family heirlooms, beloved traditions, and the colorful characters who pass through its doors. A Southern home sets the stage for evenings of hospitality, laughter, and entertaining, followed by days of welcome respite.
This series was inspired by what I call "EHappy moments:" the little things in our everyday worth celebrating like the feeling of clean sheets or a long walk in the sunshine. What are some of your favorite EHappy moments?
A fun conversation with a stranger, hearing an old song and remembering all the lyrics, homemade cards from my husband, and kisses from baby Lucy.
Fill in the blank: start each day with a grateful heart and finish it with:
A “sleep with the angels.” (A saying my parents always told us before bed, that we now say to our daughter.)
Your dream dinner party guests:
Reese Witherspoon (for the fun), Joel Gott (for the wine), Michael Jackson (for the music), and Jaime Oliver (for the food)
Last show you watched or book you read that you loved:
I know I’m late to the trend, but I’m currently watching “Scandal” and am obsessed! Is there anything Olivia Pope can’t do?!
Next adventure on your bucket list:
I’d love to make it to India in 2023 to visit my weavers and see their families!
