Meet New York interior designer, Julieta Alvarez. We were lucky to be invited into her light-filled home to talk about her style and the projects she’s completed. Her style is anything but static, and she has built up her house over time to create her fun and international style. She draws inspiration from the places she visits on her travels- filling her space with local products to make her apartment really feel like home. An avid DIYer, Julieta is especially proud of her IKEA hacks, like the dresser in her daughter’s room with handmade leather pulls.
