Hi, I’m Lara!

I’m the designer, stylist and DIYer behind Liv & Bloom.
My mission is to help you design a beautiful home that supports your goals and where it feels good to be.

my story…

I call myself

I have a 20+ years background experience in the corporate world in marketing + communications in various industries.
A few years ago, I took the decision to leave it all behind to create life on my own terms, and make a difference in what I do. After some trials and errors, I created Liv & Bloom.

What started as a creative outlet and a way to find balance in a chaotic period of my life led me to pivot into creating for brands in the interior world and help clients design their homes.

I couldn’t be happier to have made my passion for styling and designing a job that motivates me every day. And that journey started right at home, with the desire to create a place where I’d feel good.

I started sharing this journey on Instagram and on here, which got me featured by HGTV, Magazine Je Décore and on other publications.


The transition of selling our first home and starting to renovate our second opened me up to a whole new world of realizing how crucial our home environment is to our wellbeing, and that creating a beautiful home can be accessible, and most importantly home is a reflection of the people who live in it.

Fast forward to almost three years into our home renovations and looking back at choices I’ve made in my home and challenges I had to deal with in my personal life, wellness quickly became a lifestyle I started adopting. Home has definitely been my sanctuary, it’s at the heart of creating joy, memories and making dreams come true. This has led me to explore and study how to design spaces using neuroscience and other human sciences.

What and how is neuroscience used in design?

Neuroscience for design is designing in a way that stimulates the brain and nervous system to influence behavior. Since visual stimuli in our environment consciously and unconsciously impact our perception, emotions and actions, design based on neuroscience principles explicitly takes into account elements that stimulate or inhibit some behaviors, depending on the purpose of the space. It is used to create healthier, more effective spaces instead of taking into account only aesthetics, style or function on their own. It encompasses all of them.


About Liv & bloom

Whether it’s through my blog or as a client, I want to show you how your home can shape your everyday and support the goals you aspire to achieve.

My mission: help you create an intentional, elevated and warm home that supports your needs and dreams, while keeping it accessible.

My approach: bring beauty into your everyday, create spaces with your wellbeing and needs in mind, make your home unique to you, your family and your story.

My signature style: a curated approach to interiors that express your unique personality. I lean into earthy, organic and natural materials. Textures, layering and elements of nature is my love language. I love spaces that balance creativity, connection and a sense of relaxation. In a nutshell, spaces that are warm, inviting and regenerative.

I also DIY a lot and believe that creating a meaningful home should be accessible. That’s why I also guide you through what to do and where to go, provide you with tutorials and any additional information to help you along this journey.

This is more than an investment in your home, it’s an investment in yourself!

I believe home should
tell your story….

Mine includes sweet memories of the Mediterranean Sea, nature and huge trees and flowering bushes like olives, citrus and jasmin. I have images of arches and stone and old wooden tables and doors. So it’s no surprise that I have a lot of these elements in my home now along with others that I came to love as my experiences grew.


In this chapter of my live, my family and I are looking for more connection to each other, friends and family. We are looking to be more creative and to see each of our personalities flourish. And our home helps us do just that.

On the blog, I share small and large-scale home renovations, styling, attainable decor, DIYs, as well as food and lifestyle . My wish is to inspire you to create spaces that bring you joy and wellness. In here, you’ll read about my mistakes, my learnings, my inspirations and my progress through loving our home and giving it the potential it deserves! While you’ll see a lot of before & afters, you’ll also see spaces that constantly change and evolve with time.

If that’s what you want for yourself, you just need to start.
Trust me, it’s easier than you think!

How can we work together
