About

I'm Ju, a designer & course creator dedicated to helping you to live in a home that brings you joy!

Scared about choosing colours and patterns? Not sure how to pull a room together? You would love a home that feels like you, but you are confused about your style? Or maybe you’re feeling stuck and don’t even know where to start… It’s deffo not easy making all the decisions you need to make when embarking on any decoration project…
But it can still be fun!

Maybe what you need is someone to inspire, teach and guide you in the best direction, right? 


And that’s exactly what I do! 

"You know you need to have confidence in your decor decisions to move forward and create a home that brings you joy, a place that you can’t wait to get back to and a space that you'll never want to leave."

Hi, I’m Ju, a mint tea drinker, a colour believer and an originality admirer.

Brazilian living in England, great crafter, a terrible cook and an interior designer (with over15 years of experience), turned stay-at-home mum, who could not let go of my love for furniture, fabrics, and the smell of fresh paint.

So, in 2015, I came up with a game plan and started my journey of rebuilding my confidence and getting back to creating joyful, personality-filled spaces. (It was the best decision EVER!)

That’s why I started Blooming Home Society, I wanted to create a “vibrant world” for creative women, where I get to inspire, teach and give them the confidence to start connecting the dots their way and tell their personal story through their homes.

Because who you are is more important than what you have or what you do!

The Blooming Home Society is not just an online home decorating school; it’s a joyful way of life, it’s an experience where we create your dream home together and your imagination is just as important as mine!

I work closely with our members, helping them to identify what they like and dislike while thinking outside the box and sharing with them the best design secrets I’ve learned –  All tailored to their spaces. 

Together we will create YOUR “hugging” home, filled with things you love, functionality and your own uniqueness!

What I Believe

Our beliefs are a big part of who we are… and I can’t think of a better way for you to start getting to know me, than giving you a little peek of what’s inside my heart! So here we go…

  • I believe that joy is triggered by the outside so I'm always finding ways to inject moments of joy into my everyday... A hot cup of tea, a scented candle, and always surrounding myself with things that make me smile.
  •  I believe in curiosity... I believe that listening to your instincts and stepping out of your comfort zone is the best way to achieve your goals and grow as a person... it's not easy, but if we see our fears as arrows pointing out to the direction we should take... magic will happen.
  • And finally I don't believe in chasing butterflies... I believe in looking after our own gardens so the butterflies can come to us! Life is so much brighter when we stop the comparison game and start focusing on how to become who we want to be.
