Teresa Matos Correia spent 10 years in a furniture restoration workshop, surrounded by very different objects. These varied in age and type of restoration techniques applied, but they all had a story to tell. Repair, renew and reinvent are activities which can be confused with Teresa’s personality. After taking a course in Textile Production at Antonio Arroyo Artistic School, she went on to work in a furniture restoration workshop with two friends. While rehabilitating old pieces of furniture, customers would end up asking for  her advice. They began with simple issues like where to place a specific object and went on to ask for her help in remodeling small spaces, including counsel on the best materials to use, and so on. From there, interior design seemed the obvious next step. When we asked her to describe herself, she directs us to her elder daughter’s blog saying "there is no one better than our children to describe us''. It was there that we discovered this text: “I have always lived with an interior decorator, and I hated it! There would be something different every day, sofas would be moved from one side of the room to the other, wallpaper didn’t last more than 6 months, our bedrooms reflected our personalities but by no means escaped the fury of change, and from time to time we would get a new wall treatment, paint, wallpaper or whatever, it was not just the layout of the furniture, but something had to change!In the end, like every daughter fears - Surprise Surprise !!! Not only do I work in the decoration industry, as nothing in my house remains in the same place for very long!
