My name is Monia and I am a lover of aesthetics and interior beauty. I specialize in writing texts that capture the essence of modern decoration.

For me, interior decorations are not just objects: they are stories that come to life in every room. Wall murals, window decorations such as stylish curtains or practical roller blinds, as well as unique wall decorations (acrylic prints, canvas prints, aluminum prints) – each of these elements has a story waiting to be told.

What makes my work so special? The collaboration with a great designer Daria with whom I form a complementary duo. Her visions and decoration ideas, combined with my ability to capture their beauty in words, create a unique effect. Together we inspire existing and new customers, giving them a fresh look at decorations.

I am proud to be part of and to contribute to creating unforgettable spaces for our customers. I invite you to keep up to date with our latest creations and be inspired by what we create together!

Kind regards,
