Location: Brasília, Brazil
I have always been a design lover and always felt this was my talent, but I ended up graduating in journalism. One day in 2011, I was writing an article about affordable design with a work friend when we encountered the site (we did an interview with you guys). I became really obsessed with the house tours and did my own blog on house tours in my city (Brasília, Brazil) inspired by the Apartment Therapy idea.
Things got serious and I gave up my 10 year career in journalism, went back to University and graduated in Interior Design last year. I've opened a design studio and went from being a frustrated reporter, to living my dream of working with design.
Back to the home tours, since then I dreamed of my house on the site, but I always felt that it was never good enough. I told this story to a group of friends and they went crazy on me, saying my house was already perfect in its own way, and finally I agreed. I don't know if it was the wine talking, but here I am, trying to make this small dream of mine come true.
You are an endless inspiration for my life and work!
