Meet Andreina Liborius

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andreina Liborius.

Hi Andreina, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
My name is Andreina, and I’m the owner of SM Décor Design. I grew up in Venezuela and moved to the United States to do my graduate program. I have always thought that graduate studies teach you to specialize in your area of research and guide you to understand that you can do everything you set out to do; they help broaden your mind, generate creativity, and believe in yourself. Do you know the saying, “if you can dream it, you can achieve it”? If I’ve learned anything, it’s that your career isn’t the only thing that defines you. Although you can be very successful in your career, you can also be an entrepreneur, creator, and endless facets! Over the last two years, I have achieved most of the goals that I always wanted to accomplish after finishing my studies. I started to experience different facets of myself that I have always wanted to explore, and each of them makes me extremely happy! Therefore, I decided to follow another one of my dreams, and I decided to study (a little more), and I got certified in Interior Decoration & Home Staging. I have learned so much and received so much support from all my family, friends, and clients that I must express how happy I am to help you to comfort your home and spaces with my interior design/staging tips and tricks.

Interior decoration and home staging have always been my hobby. Since I was a child, I have loved performing and learning about decorating. I love to tap into that creative part of me; it makes me extremely happy, and I love to share the feeling with all of you! I confess that in the beginning, I started my blog/Instagram as a “guilty pleasure” that I used to do to entertain myself in my free time.

Thank you for believing in me, in my project, and supporting me in my start-up business (which started as a hobby) that is now developing as a business and teaching platform, with many good vibes from all of you!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I would say that most of the challenges I had to overcome have been the time management between my Geologist career and my Interior Design Business. Is it possible to have two jobs you love and make time for both? Yes, it is possible if you carefully plan your time. Is it possible to love both disciplines at the same time? Yes, it is possible! Especially if you absolutely love what you do in both careers. Women can conquer the world!

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
SM Décor Design is an interior design/staging business that started with online consultations/ online courses during the pandemic. It has been scaling up into an excellent opportunity to prove my creativity in developing on-site interior design projects, and staging’s to the Houston community. My work blends the best of the latest trends (japandi, boho, scandinavian, mid-century) into a great traditional-contemporary look. As millennials, we love to have a modern-looking look with a comfy home, and that’s what I accomplish. That’s our signature!

Are there any books, apps, podcasts or blogs that help you do your best?
I love to understand the human brain. I have always been interested in neuroscience, and I love to know why we are as we are and why our emotions create our reality; My favorite books talk about that subject, and I will recommend my top three. Emotions for life by Enric Corbera, How to Make Good Things Happen by Marian Rojas Estape, and lastly, Evolve your Brain by Joe Dispenza.
