Miriam Yeleq

Sara Moreno is used to the changes and the truth is that everyone has been very positive. A little over fifteen years ago she met Dani, her husband, and he left her hometown, Burgos, to settle in Madrid. Together they lived in an apartment of 60 m2 in the southern part of the capital until Mateo, his first son, arrived and his birth was a turning point in his career. “I worked as an administrator in an online advertising company,” he tells us, “but I had to quit because I found it impossible to reconcile. So, I looked for an escape from life, I wanted to recycle myself, that my son did not see me as a sad or overwhelmed person, and I began to make loom and macrame tapestries. It was something that relaxed me and made me feel very happy. ”

Thus, with much effort and dedication, Fruto Samore was born, his own signature of handmade macrame items: blankets, tapestries, cushions, poufs, baskets and planters… “Everything you see in my brand is my fruit, the fruit of Samore, a word formed by the first syllables of my name and my last name ”. It was released with the XXL merino wool blankets, although, as she acknowledges, from a young age she felt great interest in DIY ideas and the world of DIY.

THE SALON

The 50 m2 of the hall were organized in different environments.

The original house had a fireplace that Sara and her husband threw to make a new one.

“We cover it ourselves. At the top, with a material that mimics stone, and at the bottom, with porcelain. We didn't want any embers or spark to spoil the wood in the floor, ”says Sara.

Shortly after he thought it would be a good idea to install a rail-like beam through which to slide a hanging chair from this corner to the seating area.

Every corner of this house reveals tastes and passions of Sara and her husband: from the loom and macrame pieces or their love for natural plants - "we have everything: a strelitzia, an euphorbia, potos, succulents ..." - to travel, Your favorite hobby. “The last we could do alone, without children, was Japan and the Maldives, and our next family destination we would like it to be Indonesia.

“We adopted Mia, a puppy dog ​​- an Andalusian breed derived from terrier crossings - just over four years ago, shortly before Mateo, our first child, was born. It is very cold, always looking for a warm corner to sleep or to scratch the tripita, one of the things he likes. That, and go for a walk with the children. ”

To make her comfortable, Sara wove a cozy and fluffy bed with a cotton tube. A design that is also available in the online store of its website, Fruit Samore.

Mateo's arrival did not revolutionize only his professional life. “As soon as he was born, four years ago, We feel the need to move to the countryside, we wanted our children to grow up in wide spaces, surrounded by nature ”. So, after two or three months of searching, they found their new home. “We really didn't have a preconceived idea. All we asked was that it fit our budget and that it should not be thrown away. Above all, we wanted him to have possibilities to adapt it to our liking. ” And in that they are. Little by little, Sara and Dani are giving the house a face lift.
