Who is Juan Sandiego?

You could say I was a nomad for a long time. I’ve lived in twelve different houses in just over a decade: from a tatty seaside B&B to a fancy flat by the river. Now, I’m settled in a little Victorian terraced house. This unusual situation made me realise what really makes a house a home.

I’m passionate about interior design and the science of well-being. This led to the creation of Boreal Abode back in 2017 as a way to document my ongoing learning process. Since then, the blog has won an industry-leading Amara Interior Blog Award. And I’ve been featured on BBC One, My Domaine and Reclaim magazine to name a few.

The greatest opportunity of them all is connecting with people like you and helping you be happier at home. Rented or owned, house or flat — none of that matters when it comes to happiness. It all starts the moment you discover your own decorating style…

Find your true decorating style

Have you nailed down your unique style? Or do you still follow what others do on Instagram and Pinterest? I’ve created a free guide for those struggling to define their own style. Or perhaps those stuck halfway through. 

Why copy someone else when you can develop your very own signature style? You’ve seen it already. Some people have design styles that are instantly recognisable. I can show you how to make your home one-of-a-kind.
