From time to time life gives you the opportunity to pause and see things with perspective. My love for design and beautiful interiors has to do with how I like feeling at home, and how I believe people should feel in their own homes.

Room to Rebloom is a non-profit organization that creates healing environments for survivors of domestic violence; and I had the privilege of working with them on the transformation of a one bedroom apartment for a very special client :)

When I met with our client for the first time she told me she wanted happy colors on the walls - a very big challenge for a neutral girl like me. Little did I know I was going to end up using the most beautiful shade of robin's egg blue to create a cheerful living room, and a cherry jubilee accent wall in the glam lady-like bedroom. The most important part of it all was being able to create a beautiful, livable environment for a woman celebrating new beginnings. 

This project reminded me again why I love interiors, and how important it is for all of us to support each other and spread a bit of joy, whenever possible.

I'm so thankful for this experience and for the amazing people that keep lifting my spirit with kindness. Thank YOU for always reading and for following my adventures. It means a lot! xx.

INSPIRATION - Bold & Glam Apartment


All pictures by DOMAINE

It's been some time since I made an inspiration post, but trust me I've been anything but inspired these days. Working on my own place - being my own client - gives me the liberty I need to try new things, explore my own style,  go outside the box.

Sometimes I need  a little push to be brave with my designs (#designerconfessions) and spaces like this one are exactly what keeps me dreaming of glamorous possibilities. Take a look at this NY apartment designed by Sasha Bikoff. It's TO DIE FOR!

I just can't get enough of the combination of bold colors. This space has all my favorite glam combinations together: black and white; malachite and gold; lucite and fur; animal print; pattern on pattern; and of course... all those chandeliers!

Are you taking notes? I've gone through these pictures more than once (ok... more than 10 times now) and keep finding amazing combinations. This is bold and extremely glamorous design, and I want some of it! :)

Would you try any of these combinations at home? How brave are you in your design? Even though sometimes it's hard to make big changes, design should be FUN!

Hope you liked it. xx.

P.S: DON'T MISS MY FOYER REVEAL THIS THURSDAY!!! :) :) It's a good one!

E-Design - Modern Dining Room


Hi there!

This design addiction of mine has made me push my creativity in so many new ways. I found myself creating work everywhere I go. Work that I enjoy doing and prioritize over many other tasks. I mean, working with colors, textures, furniture and art pieces. What else can I ask for? :)

Recently, I had the opportunity to work on a e-design project. I thought it was going to be harder than it actually was. With all the electronic sources we have now a days, being in touch with the client, getting immediate feedback, and working in a space that you can’t physically visit is actually very doable! Fantastic!

This project was made in collaboration with a professional interior designer in Ecuador. The client needed some modern changes in their living room keeping some favorite pieces like the dining room table, and adding some “musts” like the fab white chairs, for example. As an interior designer she proposed structural changes to be made throughout the room: mirror wall + fireplace, ceiling fixtures, built in shelves, etc. And came out with this proposal:

She contacted me in order style and accessorize the place! As you can see, it was almost a white and gray canvas. So, I decided to include fun pieces, colors, accessories and textures to give the place more personality.

I prepared an e-design board and did a quick exercise to incorporate the pieces in the floor plan. This was the result:

I decided to start adding some texture with new upholstered chairs that balanced the other acrylic white ones. Then, I choose to spread some color starting with red, as on the other side of the room (out of the picture) the client had this gorgeous red credenza. 

Thinking about connecting both spaces, I used color to create a cool and modern ambiance. Pillows were the way to go! (I love the effect that pillows can have in a room). Finally, I added a rich blue rug and a fantastic piece of art that wraps up the whole color palette. This was so much fun! Styling places is my favorite thing.

So, what do you think of the final result? Would you have chosen any of these pieces yourself? Which one is your favorite?? :)

Thanks for reading and leaving your comments in here! I really appreciate your support. Have a fantastic weekend.xxxxooooo.
