Because everything can be a little cuter

Hello and thank you for visiting! My name is Laura and welcome to my blog, Paroxa Designs.

First and foremost, you might be wondering what “paroxa” is, exactly. How did I come up with that name exactly?

Well purple is my favorite color, and “paroxa” is a combination of “pareda” and “roxa.” “Pareda roxa” in Galician means purple wall, and one thing I would like to have in my home someday is a purple accent wall.

So I decided to go with Paroxa so I’d always remember to get that wall.

In mid-May I graduated from college and moved into an apartment with no furniture except an air mattress. Since then I’ve been slowly trying to turn it into something nice to look at and decided to use this blog to document the DIY projects and improvements I attempt.

Sewing and painting are my areas of focus but I’m willing to try anything crafty!

You can also follow me on Twitter and Pinterest, and feel free to browse my Etsy shop as well!

    Hi! I like your blog… It’s very nice and your tutorials are pretty easy and clean.
    I’ve just started a sewing blog too, it’s called sew, craft, paint: love!
    If you have some spare time, please, have a look at it.
    I’d love to have your feedback.
    Have a nice day,
