Sofia's Sabbatical is an interior design/lifestyle blog all about my adventures in design, kids, cooking... Whether its a refresh of a room, a fun DIY project, recipes or beauty finds (NEW), I've got it covered.

Sofia's Story


To be perfectly honest, Sofia is actually my middle name. But is sounds a little more catchy than "Natalia's Sabbatical".

I'm a stay-at-home mother of two young girls with a full time design obsession, in California's Silicon Valley.
With a Certificate of Interior Design from NYU, a stint at Restoration Hardware, and free-lance design work for friends and family, I love all things design.

I'm currently on "sabbatical" from my former life in the financial markets. Municipal bonds aren't exactly the sexiest thing out there.

Join me as I share my love of design, home goods and accessories, and chronicle my design adventures. I'll share fun design and DIYs for the kids, recipes I love, and beauty tips/tricks that I can't live without.
