Hello! I'm so glad to meet you. Nooks In Bloom is a a little dream that grew from my passion for home decor and painting. I've learned that I'm at my best when I am creating. Whether I am styling a room, renovating a salvaged piece of furniture, painting on a canvas or up to my ears in a DIY project, these are times my heart is happy.

In 2018 my husband Ronny and I embarked on designing and building our home in Florida. We had never built a house before, nor had I ever designed an entire home from start to finish.  There were many hurdles and moments of despair.  But it was also one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives. Ronny was the engineer behind the scenes and my partner in crime. He grew up in Germany and I in Costa Rica—both in cultures where you learned to mend things rather than disposing of them when they broke. So diy’ing our way through the process was an extension of our upbringing.

With our move to the Atlanta area in 2023 we get to experience a new setting for our family. We are enjoying discovering all the wonderful eateries, the abundance of parks and natural beauty, and of course the rich cultural and arts scene.  I can’t help but find myself inspired to paint. I’ve now taken to the canvas where I’m being drawn to create abstract scenes rich in color texture and floral inspo!

Helping others learn ways to enhance their homes and lives through art and decor is something that fuels me everyday. I thank each of you for supporting this blog. Your comments, your emails and simply taking time out of your day to read a post means the world to me! I look forward to sharing this creative journey with you.

  1. So happy I found your blog and videos! I’m renovating an old house that I’m turning into an airbnb in South Tampa. I look forward to learning new techniques from you. I found you by typing in ideas for a cinderblock wall and so glad I did! Now I’m not going to drywall over my wall but do your technique to it instead!! I’ll let ya know how it turns out.
    Where in Florida are you btw?


    1. Hi Kimberly! Yay, so glad you reached out. I am just North of Wesley Chapel, so not too far. That is exciting to hear about your future Airbnb. What a fun adventure. The cinderblock wall project was fun and I am still loving that wall. Keep me posted on your progress!
