Dinah was born in Yorkshire, England then raised in Scotland from the age of 12. On leaving school she received her qualifications in Floral Art, then gained experience in the Hand Made Chocolate Confectionery business. She then diversified into Sales and Marketing in the seafood industry, working for local Scottish Seafood companies.
Since 1996 she has been a full-time stay at home mum bringing up her 3 children. During this period she studied and qualified in Interior Design with the National Design Academy.
In 2006 she moved to Portugal along with her husband and family.
Her passion lies in Homes and Interiors and this new venture is both exciting and challenging for her.
Natalie came to Portugal in 1998 to embark on a big adventure in her life – arriving newly married to a Portuguese national, whom she met during her university studies in Canada, and expecting her first child.
Over the years, Natalie has been fortunate to achieve gainful employment offering services of interior decoration and for 6 years promoting the second hand property market at the nearby golf and leisure resorts.
The years of living in this region of Portugal's lovely Costa da Prata (Silver Coast) have been good and enjoyable, a real learning experience, and she has been well received into the local community where she has established both a family home and now new business.
