“My passion for design and deep respect for my heritage has always been a source of strength and inspiration in my work. Traveling around the world gave me an understanding of different décor styles, yet my most profound desire was to return to my roots and rediscover the joyful sophistication of the Latin American home. With living LatinStyle, I am translating this unique sense of life and style into a practical and enjoyable daily experience for American homes”.
