If you didn’t believe in serendipity, think again.  Let’s rewind to Jan ’17.  

On an effort to get back on track with her life after over-indulging at Christmas, Margarida joins Second Home, the coolest and newest co-working space in Lisbon in Jan’17.  

Following a three-and-a-half-year stint in Singapore, Sylvia, on the other hand, and her Portuguese husband, found themselves in Lisbon for business reasons. With her husband often at meetings, Sylvia grew bored of speaking to the walls at home and decided to join Second Home in Apr’17.

In an effort to bring members together, Second Home organizes once a month a “Secret Dinner” and both Sylvia & Margarida didn’t blink twice before RSVPing a big fat Y E S ! At one point during dinner, Margarida overhears Sylvia mentioning she was looking for a designer and enthusiastically raises her hand and exclaims “I’m a designer!!!” . Unbeknownst to both of them, a casual conversation that evening led to a partnership the next day and the rest is history.
