Styling Pampa with Serena Mitnik-Miller

We featured Serena Mitnik-Miller in our Mi Casa Series a few years ago and recently revisited her because she continues to inspire us. As an artist, mother, and shop owner (General Store), her attention to detail and creative expression come naturally to her. Her earthy colour palette resonates deeply with Pampa and aligns perfectly with our rugs & homewares.

Serena’s Top Styling tips

1-Choose your Colour Palette

Start with a colour palette that feels authentic to you. I love earthy tones because they create a calm, grounded atmosphere. Think about the colours that make you feel at home and build from there.

2-Embrace Natural Materials

Incorporating natural materials like wool, wood, and linen brings a sense of organic warmth to your space. These materials not only create a healthier home, but they age gracefully and add a timeless quality to your home.

3-Add Rugs

Rugs truly define a space, offering the freedom to introduce patterns and textures or opt for a refined look. They have the unique ability to tie a room together and make it feel complete.

4-Introduce Layered Textures

Layering textures is key to creating a cozy and inviting space. Mix and match different fabrics and materials to add depth and dimension, making your home feel rich and lived-in.

5-Create Vignettes

Designing small, intimate areas within larger spaces can make your home feel more inviting. Create vignettes, like reading corners, breakfast areas, or cozy seating spots, to relax and enjoy a moment of peace.

6-Bring the Outside In

Plants are a wonderful way to bring life and freshness into your home. They connect the indoors with the outdoors, enhancing the natural feel of your space. Plus, they improve air quality and contribute to your overall well-being.

7- Keep open spaces

Maintaining open spaces ensures a clear flow and tranquil ambiance, enhancing both functionality and relaxation within your home.


A note from Pampa: After much anticipation, Pampa is set to open its doors working in parallel with General Store Venice, Los Angeles. Our longstanding friendship with Serena, coupled with our admiration for her unique blend of store and home aesthetics, makes this opportunity truly special. Stay tuned for updates.
