Ivelisse de Leon, a/k/a Ivy,  caught the decorating bug early in life.   She honed her well-trained eye with her father who had a thrift store in NYC introducing her to vintage finds and antiques.

Following her passion for design, she started her blog in 2011.   The blog grew with a focus on decorating, entertaining and gardening.
