It is time for a new feature in my blog series ‘People who inspire me’, don’t you agree? And today I am taking you all the way to sunny Madrid in Spain. I want you to meet María Vázquez Vizoso, the creative mind behind the blog Dr. Livinghome. If you are not familiar with María’s work so far, you will be up for a treat! Dr. Livinghome is a perfect name for her blog. Although I would say she is also some kind of wizard when it comes to transforming spaces. She is known for her awesome before & after projects and I will share a few highlights here too.
Why do I love María’s work? Well when you look at her Instagram account, it is pretty obvious. Just like me, she likes plants, vintage items, a personal and affordable style. No luxury, no over-styled spaces. Instead you will find many DIY projects and simple ideas to inspire you to transform your home too. Spreading this inspiration with a vibrant, warm, and cool style and showing how you can redecorate your home on a budget and with a sustainable twist, that is the magic of Dr. Livinghome.
Honestly, whenever I see one of María’s DIY projects in her home (which she uses as a sort of decor lab as she says), I wish I were a better DIY person. With more skills and more time at hand. But even though I am not as good with DIYs as María is, her blog still ignites ongoing inspiration and ideas for my own home decor projects. Can we talk about her bedroom makeover for example? Oh my! That floating plant shelf above the bed, that bedspread! Of course these are all María’s own DIY ideas.
If I move to a bigger place one day (Lord, do you hear my prayers?) I think I need to hire María for a few decor projects. I would love to include some of her handmade artwork in my home, or such a wonderful throw, or even get a vintage sideboard upcycled by her? The ideas are abundant!
