Hello! My name is Elba, thanks for visiting my blog.
I started this new project to share the adventures of my life as an interior designer, event planner and shop owner. I love the idea of creating new things, working on fun projects and sharing with you some tips I find along the way.
I started my blog in June 2011 after moving from Mexico to Asheville, North Carolina and marrying an amazing man who I found in Chile while I was studying in an exchange program (true love history). After many road trips and other adventures we decided to settle down and here we are.
Here I am a designer, creator and friend. I want to share my most cherished photos and projects so you can be part of my adventures and inspiration. I enjoy every moment I spend working on my projects, people with whom I share ideas, the sun, air and all the beautiful things my job entails.
Some favorite posts:
Some of my favorite things in the world:
My dog kyra, learning about world crafts, morning coffee, fashion magazines, sketches, doodling ideas on napkins, designing with bright colors.
Things I love, Things I hate:
I love making a mess while I work and then I get angry because the house is dirty, if I don’t like the process and the product, what’s the point?
My house is full of pillows, from the moment I learned how to make them I can’t stop.
My dog is the cutest in the whole world but won’t stop barking.
I use bright colors and yes people ask me why? And I still don’t know.
I love dots and lines but something about dots just makes me happy.
Artisan crafts inspire me and all the cultures and people behind them but I also enjoy modern and new styles.
