Hi there! My name is Medina Grillo and I love all things DIY, DECOR and DESIGN related.  I am a mother to a fantastic little boy and wife to an amazing husband who puts up with my crazy ideas and insane creative mood swings. The best part is he also has a ‘secret’ talent for woodwork and building so a total win win partnership right? I might be the brains behind the ideas I share on this site, but he most definitely is the brawn.

I am also the founder of all the Grillo Designs Home and DIY Facebook groups. Are you a member?

Did I mention that we move around a lot? Yup. We are renting tenants living in the UK- not yet blessed with owning our own home. We move, settle in, decorate, then more times than not, leave. That’s not completely a negative thing by the way. That’s just how we roll. One day we will have our forever home, but until then we’ll just keep inspiring, creating and being thankful for the opportunity to make wherever we live a place we can love.
