creating a home


Creating a home and building a beautifully curated space is a process we all experience at some point in our lives. When I rented my first apartment I was looking for unique interior pieces, I tried to move away from mass produced items but sadly the quality decor pieces I carved were out of my budget or I found it difficult to find stores that catered to my style.

Travelling the world in the seek of beauty is not a cheap nor easy task. But I trully appreciate the process of building a beautifully curated space and I want to give you a more affordable way to fill your home with one of a kind handmade pieces.

Like most of us, I went to big stores and bought all the basics, a bed, a sofa, a dinning table. When I put everything together, I realized that my home looked like any storefront. It lacked personality. Although I liked what I had chosen, this furniture said nothing about me, my tastes and my memories. Since then I made it my mission to create a beautiful home that I would feel proud of and comfortable. I began little by little, trip by trip. I have always enjoyed travelling and treasure hunting everywhere I go. Every time I returned from a trip, I brought some gem with me: a hand carved skull from a bone carver in Bali, my first vintage berber rug from Morocco, seagrass baskets from Thailand. Before I could realize it, I had created a rich and curated home defined by the details. These pieces I collected created a complete representation of my personality.

This is the story of the very beginning of Azul Bereber. Some of the pieces in our curated selection are antiques, vintage textiles, most of them are unique and all of them have been created with passion and intention. I hope you enjoy wandering in our store as much as we have enjoyed creating it.

Crear un hogar en el que sentirnos cómodos y tratar de construir un espacio cuidado es un proceso al que todos nos enfrentamos al menos una vez en la vida. Cuando alquilé mi primer piso, intenté buscar piezas que realmente me gustarán más allá de lo que podía encontrar en grandes almacenes. Busque y busque, pero no encontraba nada que se ajustase a mi presupuesto o realmente encajase con mi gusto.

Muy a mi pesar, compré los básicos en centros comerciales, una cama, el sofá, la mesa del comedor. Cuando todo llegó a casa y ví el resultado, mi casa parecía un escaparate más. Me gustaba el espacio pero no tenía personalidad. Cualquiera podría vivir allí, era cómodo, era bonito, pero no lo sentía como mi hogar. Desde entonces, aproveché cada viaje para construir un hogar en el que me sintiese agusto. Muy poco a poco, viaje a viaje. Siempre me ha encantado viajar y recorrer los mercados en busca de tesoros que llevarme a casa. Así fueron llegando, una cabeza labrada de Bali, mi primer alfombra vintage bereber de Marruecos (esta alfombra merece otro post) o unas cestas hechas a mano que encontré en Tailandia. Antes de que pudiera darme cuenta, comenzaba a sentir mi casa mía, por fin contaba una historia.

Viajar y explorar los mercados en busca de objetos únicos no es una tarea fácil. Pero quiero que tu casa sea un lugar bello, cuidado y con personalidad.

Esta es la historia del comienzo de Azul Bereber. Algunas de nuestras piezas son antigüedades, otras son textiles vintage, casi todas son piezas únicas y todas han sido creadas con intención y mucho amor. Te invito a que des un paseo por la shop y disfrutes tanto como yo lo hecho creándola.
