Inspiring you to create a good life

Read my blog

Hello friend,
It is lovely to meet you!

I am Mané, and I would like to share my life’s journey with you and inspire you to join me in “Designing a Good Life…”

I am an Interior Designer, a blogger, and a dancer!

My blog: Designing a Good Life…
My Interior Design Website: MRP Design Studio

I was a professional dancer for over twenty years. It was a magical time in my life… I traveled the world, made great friends, danced in beautiful theaters, and met my husband!

Roger, my husband, is also a former dancer, and he is my soulmate.
