One of the most important things that I have learned from my mother and grandmother was the importance of creating a special place for yourself, your family and friends. A home that holds beauty and memories, a space that it is alive. Have every corner tell a story and decorate it with little reminders of where you come from. Make it a home that provides a sanctuary for the special people in your life.
The first time I had my own place I realized how important it was for me to create a little oasis. I still have books, drapes and furniture from my small house in Sarasota, where I went to school at the time. I must have had 25 more places after that and each one of them was like an empty canvas to rearrange my memories with objects I had collected over time.
After 15 years away, life looped me back home to Puerto Rico. I reconnected with the wisdom and love of my grandmother and not to forget all her simple yet beautiful vintage furniture, which now serve as comfort and decoration at the Dreamcatcher Guest House.
This is my home, and while you are here, yours as well….
