Macarena Rufin

Macarena has a way of making everything beautiful. As an Art Psychotherapist and creator of her new line of pillows, Love in the Raw, she has a style that has inspired and taught me to take more risks. Her work as an Art Psychotherapist proves the power of having a creative outlet and how art can act as a powerful tool for both children and adults.  She has a warmth about her that perfectly translates to her design aesthetic and now her incredible line. When she started making throw pillows I was beyond excited because it meant I could take home a piece of Macarena. Each pillow represents something that she loves.  Her choices in patterns and colors create a sense of coziness for each space her pillows finds a happy home. I've already brought home two and hoping for some more very soon! Take a peak at what Macarena loves to have in her Brooklyn home and shop her line on her site!
