Rags2Riches Collaborates with

I’m happy to see brands I support evolving. This just means more jobs for the people who work for them. Such brand is Rags2Riches, which is known for their chic and fashionable bags (wallets, clutches and shoes) made from eco-sustainable materials made by local artisans all over the country. It’s a guilt-free shopping experience whenever I leave their store. And now in a collaboration with Marilen Faustino-Montenegro, I can prettify our small space with accent pieces from R2R Living.

I’m super in love with those hanging planters, I’m thinking installing a rod along our terrace to have a place for it!
Floor planters come in small and big sizes, perfect for that splash of color in any home.


Marilen has under her belt over 10 years of experience as an interior stylist and has a design company that specializes in houses, condo and model units. Head on over her blog and Instagram account to get tips on how to organize and make each nook and cranny of your home a beautiful one.

It’s so easy to want everything on the collection! The colors – salmon pink, turquoise and grey – will fit any existing set-up in your house. And as a firm believer in organizing accessories, Marilen made sure that the pieces will both be beautiful and functional. This is very true with the hexagonal tray made from natural abaca. It can be used as a serving tray, or a catch-all, or I can see it against a bare wall being a background for flowers and succulents. Oh, I’m getting so inspired! I want to move into our own house already!
