Hey! Welcome to Manjano Zuri! My name is Jeri, and I am the founder of Manjano Zuri, a place where amateur Interior Stylists (like myself) find encouragement, inspiration and motivation for their journey in the world of Interior Styling and Décor.
I started my blog after procrastinating and doubting my abilities for such a long time but the birth of my beautiful daughter snapped me out of it. My passion for Interior Styling and Décor goes back to my childhood. Our living room walls were occasionally revamped from blue, pink to cream; my mother’s color choices were brave. I remember her often saying that she wanted to renovate the house and her favorite part of the renovation was when tiles were being placed all over the house. I don’t know why, but to this day the woman just loves tiles. I had contemplated going to school for Interior Design but when it was time to choose my college degree, I opted for school of business instead and decorate as a hobby. I often regretted my choice in the past especially when I would spend late nights reading through my favorite Stylists’ blogs and in my mind, I’d be like, ‘damn this could easily have been me’… Fast forward to March 2018, I decided to do something about the shoulda, woulda, coulda and finally started a blog where I could share about my love for styling and décor. My goal is to encourage first time mothers (like myself) and those feeling lost but would love to reclaim their identity in what they love best; their passion. I am passionate about creating a beautiful home and I truly believe this can be achieved without breaking the bank!
Facts about me:
I am married to my one and only Schnookadoodle 💋. He is my number one supporter, helps me with my DIY, my Instagram and blog posts etc. If it wasn’t for him, I would not have had the courage to start the blog.
I am a mother to the loveliest daughter ever, Queenie 😘 (her nickname). She gives life to all my days. She is the love of our lives and we are super obsessed with her!
We live in the ever shining (only when it’s not raining) and beautiful Coast in Kenya.
Lastly, I am a HR Professional by day and an Interior Stylist blogger by night. My goal is to make the latter my full time career and help you create beautiful affordable homes.
Well, there you have it folks. Thank you so much for stopping by. If you’re on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest, follow Manjano Zuri for daily décor inspiration posts!
