1. What advice do you have for someone who is interested in becoming a blogger?
I actually wrote a book about all my tips and tricks, The Decorista, Secrets of Style Blogging Success. My blog is what started my entire career. So my biggest piece of advice is to start a blog… NOW!
Jen Ramos from Made by Girl. I read her blog everyday for about a year and it totally encouraged me to start my own.
Fashion bloggers. I love the fashionistas of the world. Other decorators are great, and I love to see what they are doing but I really get inspired by whats hot and fashionable, art, photography, architecture, history etc. These things change how I look at interior spaces.
4. What is one of the most exciting projects you’ve worked on since becoming an interior design blogger? Do you have a post that reflects this project?
Every project I have ever done has been beyond exciting. I think my very first complete project in the city is my favorite. It was my first big published work from Adore Home Magazine.
Absolutely. I have so much inspiration and resource right at my fingertips. Blogging connected me to a world of interior design online. It completely changed everything, from the way I buy to the services I offer.
Start with 5 inspiration images. People don’t always know what they want. But by choosing a few mood board images and coming up with a look, that can help nail down a look and eliminate all the different options.
I love Song of Style, Because I’m addicted and Sea of Shoes. Girls with crazy good style.
Emerald green is the color of the year so I am seeing a lot of that lately. Also, exotic prints and leather!
9. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
So, one day my cousin said to me “you are like the decorator version of a fashionista.” AND BAM! It hit us, then we both yelled “the decorista!” It was kismet.
So many things! A new website, an update on my blog, a new art project, a new book and a new apartment!
I’m a pescatarian.
