About Elba Valverde

Live Colorful. A blog about DIY, crafts and all things colorful, fun and creative. (Live Colorful, un blog sobre manualidades, DIYs y muchas cosas coloridas, creativas y divertidas).

I’m Elba Valverde, designer, blogger and founder of Live Colorful. I’m here to share with you lots of DIYs, craft ideas, colorful projects, family adventures and anything else fun, inspiring and creative.

After graduating from college with a degree in interior design, I started a small company that designed themed parties for quinceañeras. I left behind that adventure when I moved to the U.S. from Mexico. After moving to the States and needing a creative outlet, I discovered my passion for sharing creative ideas with others and founded Live Colorful in 2012.

Growing up I moved around a bit, living in Mexico City, Campeche and Tabasco, México. I met my husband in Viña del Mar, Chile in 2007 while we were studying in an internship program. 2011 was the year we moved to Asheville, North Carolina where we lived for 2 years until we sold all our stuff and crossed the country to our new home in the San Francisco Bay Area, California in 2013.

In my free time, I love to going for walks with my baby, Jax and our poodle Kyra, doing my nails and reorganize things around the house so it always looks different and fresh. My favorite colors are blue, pink and yellow.

    Amiga quisiera que me orientaras en cuanto a accesorios se refiere, resulta que pinte una pared de la sala principal en color naranja Acogedor, las otras paredes están pintadas en color amarillo tenue o suave, pero quisiera saber que color de accesorios puedo colocar para que resalten en la misma.

    I can see that you are a color-addict since you were young! Great to know more about you, Elba! And don’t worry, I have this habit of folding the receipt of my purchase into an airplane or a crane too when I am waiting for my food to arrive!
