Welcome! I'm Estie, interior designer and mama of toddlers. This space is created as a lifestyle journal dedicated to interiors, style, and documenting the construction of our dream home. Creating beautiful living spaces is a passion of mine, since the space we occupy most of our time in becomes the backdrop to our lives! This year, we took a giant leap -- we're becoming modern day pioneers and forging our own trail from Southern California to Houston, Texas. Join us!
Moving is nothing new to both me and my husband Kovi -- we both came to America as young children, from Russia and South Africa respectively. If there's anything our parents instilled in us, it's the drive to achieve your dreams and be fearless about it! Now that we have children of our own, we felt the same way, so we bought some land to call our own! Now I'm living out my designer dreams by designing our own home from the bottom up.
Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, I love the process of creating a haven that reflects its owners and pulls from various global influences cohesively, no two homes that I've worked on look alike! If your home needs a refresh, I'd love to work with you!
Initially trained in journalism and literature, my mantra was edit, then edit some more! I quickly realized that this translates to interior design and life at large, which is why curating a beautiful lifestyle is so important to me. In a world where life can quickly become a blur, I find that small rituals, meaningful objects, and loved ones surrounding you creates true fulfillment. Want better, not more!
This blog has quickly become a lifestyle journal and a source of inspiration for myself as well as others. Thank you for following along!
