Ivy Elrod

Ivy, along with her husband Josh, is the owner of the gorgeous Nashville interiors shop, Wilder. They relocated here from New York, where Ivy was a Rockette (!) among other awesome things. I love this town, but man did this couple bring a much needed dose of energy, design, and creativity. The shop is impeccably curated, and hosts frequent events for artists and designers. Right now, our good friend Elise Joseph is running a summer long pop-up featuring women's clothing and accessories, and you can even find a few Elizabeth Suzann exclusives there! Ivy is such an inspiration - she works her ass off at Wilder, has a beautiful growing family (adorable Chance and Rev can be spotted in the shop every now and then), and has a contagious positive spirit. We're honored to have you as a muse, Ivy, and we can't wait to see how Wilder evolves! If you're in Nashville, put their shop on your must-visit list for sure.
