About Elba Valverde
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.
