ABOUT PALOMA CONTRERAS

Paloma Contreras is an interior decorator, tastemaker and award-winning design blogger based in Houston, Texas. Her design sensibility is a modern take on traditional style - gravitating toward classic silhouettes and timeless pieces paired with a touch of glamour and an infusion of color.


Paloma has been featured in multiple publications and websites including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, House Beautiful, Domino, ELLE Décor and LUXE, among others. She has also worked on special projects with top brands like Bravo Television, American Express, Miele, Nest, Auberge du Soleil and Hilton Luxury Brands.


Paloma believes every home should be a reflection of the people who inhabit its walls. Through her signature design approach, she develops a comprehensive, bespoke plan suited to each individual project resulting in comfortable, luxurious spaces reflective of her clients' tastes, interests and lifestyles.


Paloma launched her widely read blog, La Dolce Vita, in 2007, where she writes about "the sweet life" on a daily basis.
