Foyer Reveal

Foyer Reveal

The entryway of a home is one of the most important places, as it sets the tone for what your guest can expect the rest of your home to look and feel like. I dreamt of decorating this space from the time we signed the contract to have our home built.

When we finally moved in, my priorities had shifted and at some point decorating this area fell to the bottom of our to-do list. The foyer, looked so uninviting; nothing like what I had visualized.

In an effort to tackle this area of our home, I began by adding a bench. I opted for a bench over a console table because I personally feel that tables become a landing places; filled with phones, keys, toys, etc. I wanted to avoid this and the bench has actually worked perfectly.

Hola, Welcome!

Hola, my name is Nailil! I am a mom to two beautiful girls and a tiny Chihuahua. I am married to a US ARMY Veteran (who I immensely admire for his bravery and service). I am also a tea fanatic, foodie, occasional traveler, Christian music listener, cook, and DIYer. I was born in Panama thus fluent in Spanish, partially raised in Germany (but didn’t pick up the language while there) and have lived in the US for years.

I started this blog with a bit of anxiety and doubt but lots of faith. While, reminding myself that God will lead the way, and adopting Mark 11:24 as my motivation to pursue this dream.

Wishing to share life, food, travel, DIYs, fashion and more. My hope is that you will like what I share, come back frequently and that along the way I am able to connect with so many people; that our interactions, though virtual, become more of a friendship.

What’s behind the name? I have known that I wanted to work online since forever. And this year, that I turned 29, I decided to go for it. That’s why I chose Thirty Minus One, I feel that it’s meaningful!

I won’t rant on, but I hope that you will come back and check out my future posts, leave comments, follow me on Instagram and Pinterest.

Saludos,
Thirty Minus One
