Sabina Vavra

Zappos Creative Director of Interiors Interiors/Home Las Vegas, NV
About Sabina
I am the mother of two delicious little girls (2 and 6 weeks) who are my beating heart. I have always adored my career in design which has enabled me to not only create spaces to shape a mood but has also allowed me to partner with brands and people I find inspiring. Originally I'm a California girl, being raised on a farm in Sonoma County, however we (hubby, I and our dog) moved from San Francisco to Las Vegas about 4 years ago. It's been a bit of a culture shock but we are loving how easy life is here and all of the great outdoor activities to do with our girls.

I've been in the field of design for about 15 years now and am currently the Creative Director of Interiors for Zappos focusing on the redesigns of any space (like the Zappos Theater where JLo, Gwen Stefani, and Backstreet Boys have a residency). Additionally, I just took a 3 month partnership with the Property Brothers to do the home designs of their new show on HGTV, coming out Fall of 2019. During our stint in San Francisco I was the Design Director for ZGallerie Corporate and prior to that I co-founded a boutique design firm focusing on luxury residential and small commercial spaces.

Things are quite busy around here these days with our newborn and I would love to meet, connect and share a few laughs with some mammas also trying to juggle it all! I struggle with being a full time corporate working mom and have been strongly considering what the next chapter could look like!

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I would love to contribute to the community in terms of friendship, mentorship, business support, and thoughtful design expertise.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Balancing Work & Motherhood

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I am looking to scale back on the corporate work front to reallocate more time to spending with my girls and possibly even get back into the entrepreneurial space again! I am also in the early stages of writing a book focusing on design and how spaces affect you physically and mentally which I hope to have out in 2020.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I'd love to connect and meet some other like minded entrepreneurial mammas. I'm always open to expanding my circle and love meeting business minded women who are also balancing being a mom.
