María Vázquez is a Spanish decorator and creator of the online decoration school Dr. Livinghome. As a child she loved home decor and DIY, and furnished her own tree house-style cabin from repurposed items and materials. María started her career as a creative and art director, and in creating spaces for events, she reconnected with her childhood passion. After decorating her first home she began documenting the process through her blog, and Dr. Livinghome was born.

The blog later became an online home decoration service and María’s full-time business. She has collaborated with several furniture manufacturers and home improvement companies including Leroy Merlin, and Bruguer.
