Dominga is outbound, stunning, and complete of energy.

She might seem like the female lead of a Pedro Almodóvar movie however Dominga is, it ends up, the name that designers Maye Ruiz and Daniel Valero offered to their house in San Miguel de Allende, the popular colonial-era city to the north of Mexico City.

On a narrow cobblestone street in the center of San Miguel, Dominga is where a few of the most amazing– and vibrant– style tasks in Mexico are developed today.

At the end of the day, they reunite and continue to evaluate their imagination and experiment, however in the kitchen area.
