WHO IS HILDA?
Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Philadelphia, Hilda grew a strong passion for interior design ever since she can remember. She believes that a beautiful interior has the power to transform your daily life into something great. Self-taught, she has a strong understanding of how interiors come together to create one cohesive look that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Hilda is best known for creating polished spaces that are functional, friendly, and beautiful. Her aesthetic is glam with a twist, timeless with a hint of edge. She prides herself on her attention to detail, obsession with quality, and love for craftsmanship. In her spare time, Hilda enjoys spending time with her husband, 4 beautiful daughters, and grandson exploring the city’s food scene, as well as traveling worldwide for experiences and inspiration.
WHY DID HILDA DECIDE TO START HER HOME DECOR PAGE?
Hilda has had a passion for home decor since she was a teenage girl! The first makeover she ever did on a home was her best friend’s mom’s house. She used to always pick up home decor magazines just to get inspiration and how to decorate rooms in her own home. She’s always been a DIY girl and learned very early on how to repurpose items around her house in hopes of building something beautiful. Once Hilda moved into their new home build about a year ago, her husband really encouraged her to start her own social media platform to showcase her talent and creativity. It took Hilda a while to really let go of the fear of just going for it – she didn’t know if people would like her style or if she would truly gain a good following. However, she finally decided to let go of these doubts and go for it.
HOW HAS HILDA GROWN SO QUICKLY?
When Hilda started her Instagram at the end of July 2020, she started with about 200 followers. She was very new to the home decor Instagram community and didn’t really know what to do or what to expect even though she had her own personal page for a long time. Hilda decided to reach out to a few home decor accounts that she’d been following for a while wanting to know the ins and outs of having a home decor page and growing. I was one of those accounts, and I was so honored to help Hilda and welcome her into our home decor community. I gave her a few tips and, in Hilda’s words – “took her under my wing.” Hilda started growing out of nowhere and she was so incredibly happy she started this platform.
WHAT OTHER BUSINESSES DOES HILDA HAVE?
Hilda is also a hair stylist and a makeup artist, which is among the many reasons I think she is so talented and creative! She has been a makeup artist for over 10 years now, and she specializes mostly in weddings, photoshoots and sweet 16s! She has also done runway shows and New York fashion week – it’s something that she has been so passionate about from a very young age. Growing up, Hilda never felt pretty and always compared herself to her younger sister who was always done up and beautiful. As Hilda started growing up, she started to learn to love herself and embracing her looks. She loved learning how to do her makeup to make herself feel better and loves to make other women look and feel gorgeous!
WHAT IS HILDA’S ADVICE ABOUT STARTING A NEW HOME DECOR ACCOUNT?
Hilda’s number one tip would be to take “Take Lisa’s Course.” She is so sweet! Hilda says that she learned so much in this course, including the proper way to use hashtags, algorithm, and so much more. She said she makes sure to implement all of the tips she got from taking this course into her daily posts and Instagram work. Hilda said she would’ve never imagined her account growing this quickly and says that the course has really taken her to this next level.
Also, Hilda encourages to always be genuine and as unique as possible. Try to do interesting, new things that followers have never seen before so they stick around. Viewers aren’t going to keep following if you’re doing a DIY or tutorial they’ve seen 20 other times. Be creative and be genuine in the things you create and be confident in being different.
