The Home in Paradise
The Home in Paradise is a whimsical home improvement blog interspersed with snippets of Punta Cana life experiences. Its written by Punta Cana resident Clara Gonzales. Clara’s home town is Monte Cristi on the north west coast of the Dominican Republic but she spent many years abroad and in the island’s capital Santo Domingo before moving to Punta Cana. Clara is a wizard at design and d.i.y. and her blog is full of beautifully photographed, clever and creative home decoration ideas – often recycling nondescript everyday objects and giving them a new lease of life.
Here’s a quote from her About Me page…
“This blog chronicles our life in this Caribbean outpost and our journey turning this nondescript, brand-new concrete box into a home. Since we are so far away from most shops, and we strive to live a frugal life, I have to resort to craftiness, my sewing machines, lots of glue and power tools to whip this place into a semblance of acceptable home life. ”
The Home in Paradise is a great read and it may give you some ideas for how to give your home a touch of Punta Cana Caribbean style!
