ABOUT ME

MEET THE BLOGGER

Hi there, my name is Medina and I’m the blogger behind Grillo Designs. I’m also an IKEA-loving-upcycling-junkie-DIY-Passionate-home-décor-crazy momma and wife. Grillo Designs is where I share my crazy and cool DIY designs with people just like you.

 

In my “real life,” I work in the healthcare profession, but I like to consider that my part-time gig.

I decided to launch Grillo Designs as a Facebook Page and Group in 2014 to share my DIY projects and decorating ideas. I found myself typing away during my son’s nap time and pretty soon, my page became a fully fledged blog! You can read more about my blogging journey here

MY PARTNERS IN CRIME!

Thankfully, I don’t have to do this alone. My husband, Vince, is a big part of making my blogging dream a reality. He’s the one behind the scenes, helping with projects and making sure what I write actually makes it to your screen, which is kinda sorta a big deal.

 

Together with my cheeky chappy who I constantly attempt to get cute pictures of (and who fancies himself as quite the little blogger himself), we bring you the Grillo Designs blog!

SO WHAT’S THIS BLOG ABOUT?

Grillo Designs is a DIY blog that showcases how-to tutorials, decorating ideas, crafty hacks, and creative ideas for the home.

Not everyone can afford to hire an interior designer. That’s why I bring you creative and affordable style for your home life by teaching you the art of do-it-yourself decorating.

Through Grillo Designs, I’ll give you insider tricks I’ve used for years to decorate my own home—and as a renter, I know what it’s like to not want to pay retail prices for items that you may have to discard later.

I believe décor doesn’t have to be expensive or new to be perfect—and I’ll show you how to get that look. I’ll help you harness your creativity to transform your interior design into everything you dreamed of.

WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE WE?

Contrary to popular belief, this blog is based in lovely old England. If you’re clicking over from the states (which a lot of you are, I blame it on the wreaths)  , then a big hello and WELCOME! 

 

JOIN ME!

Now that you know who I am and what you can expect from my DIY blog, you might want to know where else I hang out.

Good news, I love social media!

 

You can spot me on Instagram sharing stories (sorry Snapchat, was never really that into you!) or on my Facebook page posting drool-worthy décor ideas.

Oh, and if you want to get interactive with me on social media, meet me in my 3 Facebook groups! Our DIY groups are definitely the place to chat about your DIY ideas and to get real feedback.
