Small Beginnings. Big vision.
In 2013 I was let go of a job for the first time. I was a recent grad who thought I’d found my “dream job” and working hard was all I knew. All the striving, ambition, and pretense that came with trying to find a place in the world left me worn out. My soul craved simplicity and authenticity. I truly desired to stop seeking perfection and start living by grace. And that desire led me to create Styld by Grace. A place I could share my love for design, art, writing, and style while encouraging women to be fashioned by grace.
Through the years, Styld by Grace has evolved from being a design and style blog to becoming a brand that encourages and empowers women to live a life of grace. A life of authenticity and simplicity. Now, Styld by Grace is a place for women to fill their life with modern and beautifully designed goods and resources to style their life by grace.
Styld by Grace: there’s a place for you here.
Styld by Grace means living a life styled by simplicity and authenticity. If grace were a dress, it would be the dress that makes you feel good in your own skin. When we put on grace, we wear acceptance and let go of the need for “perfect” lives. By putting on grace, we are able to embrace ourselves and others despite our differences and imperfections. Whether you’re a stay at home mom, a recent grad, the CEO of a multi-million empire, a Christian all your life, a new believer, or someone struggling with your faith, there’s a place for you here.
“For the [remarkable, undeserved] grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” (Titus 2:11 AMP)
Meet the Face Behind Styld by Grace
Hi, friends! I’m Theresa Palma, the founder and artist behind Styld by Grace. I’m happily married to Edward, a die-hard basketball fan, and we live in “The City Beautiful”, Orlando, Fl. I went to college thinking I’d study psychiatry but ended up with a B.F.A in graphic design. Designing, creating, making, and writing makes me come alive! That’s why Styld by Grace is infused with all things art & design.
I am an avid coffee drinker, but vanilla camomile tea is what I drink when I need to unwind. I have the biggest sweet tooth and I’d much rather skip dinner to have dessert. And because I live in Orlando, you’ll catch me at Disney World quite often–riding Big Thunder Mountain and eating all the Mickey shaped goodies. I cannot get enough Disney magic in my life! Mostly, I love Jesus and serving people. And Styld by Grace is an expression of that love. It’d be great to hear from you, now! Stop by and say hello over on Instagram. Hope I get to talk to you soon!
