Who is Juan Sandiego?

Hi, there! I’m Juan.

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 makes a house a home, and how indoor spaces can make you feel great — wherever you may live!

Interior Advisor and Well-being Coach

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.

Now, I help home renovators find balance and joy at home by nurturing their well-being and applying the principles of biophilic design.

How to 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.

Your home and life are like a jigsaw puzzle. Every piece of furniture and every healthy habit has the potential to positively impact your well-being.

You deserve a life and a home you truly love and are proud of. A life of balance and meaning. A home that brings you joy and supports your well-being.
