Some women were just meant to be mothers. This seems to be the case for shoe designer and Echo Park resident Beatrice Valenzuela. The Mexico-raised beauty and mama to 5-year-old Astrid and 3-month-old Dimitri is positively radiant around her children. And, with one look at her newest addition (sadly, the adorable Astrid couldn’t make our shoot), can you really blame her? Click through our slideshow below to get a glimpse inside of the moccasin-maker and Echo Park Craft Fair co-founder’s intoxicating world, from her tree house-like, color-soaked East Side home to her refreshingly relaxed take on motherhood. Inspired much?
