In 2012 Maura created a digital scrapbook paper shop on Etsy, but she soon began imagining her squares of patterns as pillow covers – and so Motif Motif brand and textiles capsule collection were born. Using her design and brand development background, the Motif Motif brand has only grown since.
Her textiles collections feature her own original designs on fabrics, throw pillows, and accessories that are USA made with eco-conscious production partners.
Maura shares her passion for interior design here on the Motif Motif blog, where she shares inspiration, décor and lifestyle musings, and brand development advice.
Textiles have a unique ability to reinvigorate a space, quite literally making you see it in a different way by creating a new path for your eye to follow. The possibilities for personalization and expression through different combinations are endless, and that is why I am drawn to designing fabric and pillow collections.
The name Motif Motif is a play on words that echoes pattern, like my textile and pillow collections, which eschew solids for pattern on pattern on pattern. I keep past designs in mind as I create new ones instead of entirely isolating my collections from one another, so that you can effortlessly mix and match new pieces and fabrics into your home – either piece by piece, or with my curated pillow sets that take the guesswork out of pattern mixing for you.
The effect is an instantly collected, layered interior with an eclectic but coordinated look, as if textiles have been thoughtfully added over time. This creates a home filled with personality and visual interest that evolves uniquely with you, and I consider it a great honor to be able to create fabrics that you may even consider incorporating into the evolution of your own home and daily life.
And they are designed for daily life – made machine washable, with the peace of mind of Oeko-Tex certified inks and sustainably sourced ground cloths – AND right here in the USA.

Fabrics You Can (and I do) Live With
soft, durable and machine washable
In creating beautiful accents for your home I prioritize quality and ease of care. As a mom to two toddlers, I have no place for untouchable things. It’s equally important to me that my belongings be attractive and functional at this stage.
Everything is machine washable. High quality finishing creates pillow covers that are meant to last: durable invisible zippers stripe across them, seams are serged, and stress points are reinforced.
I use Motif Motif pillows in our house. They’re beautiful, but not ornamental. Right now, they’re in our family room, our den, and the kids’ rooms. They’re all over the floor in a play teepee, and all over the floor in our family room half the time. We spot treat TV dinner drips and machine wash to prevent dust build-up.
