Blog post 1

It started here - just an idea, on the steps of Montmartre

When we started our business 16 months ago we decided to use a blog as the central marketing tool for our business. We did it because we didn’t really have any money for advertising and we never really believed that attending networking events would work for us. We placed the blog at the center of our website and only had one commodity on our hands to make it a success….time. 

“It’s been a long journey but 16 months later we now get 250,000 pageviews to our site per month, in the last year we have brought in over $500,000 in business as a direct result of the blog and the business operates in 2 countries and our work has been picked up all over the world.”

Candelaria - Paris

Now, my wife, jewelry and fashion designer Eleanor Mequerli, and I find ourselves in Paris where we've been living for the past two years. We've immersed ourselves in the local design scene, new projects have taken us in new directions, including the design for Paris’ hippest Mexican restobar, Candelaria.

A glimpse behind the scenes - the atelier

The closer you get

the more real the illusion becomes

and reality becomes illusioin

for what is one without the other?
